ESTABLISHED 1890. NOT MUCH SOLACE Taulmieck'sTrip to Chicago Said to Have Availed But Little In the Direction of Securing an Endorsement of the Chicago ^Ticket. Middle-of-the-Road Populists Ap pear Determined to Put Up a Separate Ticket. ST. LOUIS, July 20.—Chairman Tau beneck has returned from Chicago, and his coming was the signal for renewed activity on the part of the Populists who hope to prevent an endorsement of Bryan and the Chicago platform. His visit to Chicago, partly due to his fear that the Illinois delegation would leave him in the lurch, was apparently not productive of results. All the morning he was in secret conference •with the anti-Bryan leaders, and the national headquafters were practically deserted. Mr. Taubeneck, it is said, found sev eral stumbling blocks in his path At Chicago. lr. Tfcylor Not to Be Led. For one thing, Dr. Taylor, one of the most prominent members of the Peoples party in Illinois, is not following pas •iveiy his lead. There are so many other Populists in Illinois who are be lieved to hold the same opinion, that Mr. Taubeneck is disturbed. To have his own delegation go against him would Ue very distasteful. In the discussion with the anti-Bryan men no definite ac tion was determined upon, but they seem determined to make a straightout fight for a separate ticket. At the Oklahoma Bryan headquarters there was much jubilation over the growing strength of the movement to endorse Bryan and Sewall. Not Many Arrivals Yet. The arrivals of Populists thus far are Some came from Mississippi dur ing the morning and they say- they are opposed to Bryan. Telegrams were received of the Rhode lslund, Connecticut, Michigan and Texas delegations, who announced that they would take a position in the "mid dle of the road" column in other words would favor a straight ticket and purely Populist declaration of principles. 8IITM I'eople Very Quiet. The silver people who are also to hold a convention Wednesday are very quiet. The leaders have formulated a new de mand, which meets the approval of the Populists who have been consulted. It is that they shall insist upon the with drawal of all the Democratic congres sional nominees, who are sound money, or gold standard men, or if they will not withdraw, the silver men and Populists unite in putting up in every congressional district a free silver candidate. Thi«, it is urged, should be presented to the national Democratic committee as an ultimatum. The populists, it is understood, are to concentrate their work, and attempt to elect a congress which will favor free silver, and to accomplish this it is necessary to have the co-operation of the Democratic party. 'The Populists who are opposed to Mr. Bryan say that if he is nominated the delegates of Rhode Island, Dela ware, Massachusetts and possibly Tennessee, will bolt. TOWNE FOE PRESIDENT. ConfenaM of Silver Men and PopnllsU Decide to Present Hli Name, ST. LOUIS, July 18.—Hon. Charles A.

Eryan, the Democratic nominee for president, entered this, the capital city of Nebraska. It was au ovation the likes of which the people of this part of the country never before wit nessed. Half the population of the city, men, women and children, was at the depot to welcome him home. It was a non-partisan reception, for both Democrats and Republicans partici pated in it. The ma^or of the city, the city council and distinguished citizens Of Every I'oaaible Uelief were at-the train. "As far as the eye could reach were thronged streets, crowded windows and enthusiastic shouters on the roofs of the houses. There were bands of music, men carry ing banners and mottoes complimentary to the Democratic leader, and flags and bunting hung from the fronts of the business houses and dwellings. After a reception at the capitol Mr. Bryan made a short speech, confining his remarks mainly to thanking the crowd for the honor it had shown him. He did not refer to the campaign or its issues.

SEATTLE, Wash., July 20.—The an nouncement from St. Paul that a con tract had been signed between repre sentatives of the big Japanese steam snip line, the Nippon Yusen Kaisha, and President Hill of the Great North ern, whereby Seattle is made the American terminus of the steamship line, has caused great rejoicing here.

The first ship to come to this port will not be the regular vessels, but suit able ones designed for this trade are being built in England. The coming of this line to Seattle set tles for all time the dispute as to what city will be the Pacific coast terminus of the Great Northern. The steamers of the Northern Pacific line will also come here, and enlarged docking facil ities are already under way, The con test to secure this prize was between Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, San Fran cisco and San Diego.

Field is seriously ill at Paso Gables, where he went two weeks ago hoping to derive benefit from the springs.

TJie total number of business failures in the United States this week shows an unex pected increase to 2f»5, compared with 219 ljist week. When contrasted with the corresponding week in 1895 the in crease during the past six business days is 41. and with the second week of July, 1894. the current week's increase is 48.
