AT HOTEL HAMPTON, ROOM 34.
time is that of Napoleon, just the
day before tbe battle of Friedland,
June 14, 1807. Napoleon has ar-
rived at the castle of the Countess.
She of course is pleased to have
him, being heiself a Polander and
thiniking that in him she sees the
liberator of her beloved Poland.
At the same time she is harboring
in her bouse a handsome Prussian
officer with whom she is in love.
He is making every effort against
Napoleon possible, and at the insti-
gation of his father, gets from the
Countess the keys by which an en-
trance to the Emperor’s chamber
may be bad. Tbe plot is to asassi-
nate Napoleon. Tbe keys are ob-
tained b> n ruse. The countess
soon after aaks tbe Prussian officer
for them, and he admits having lost
them. The countess sees tbe plot,
and it is then a question of love of
country or the Prussian. Tbe bat-
tle commencing, does away with a
lot of troublesome difficulties. The
countess has decided to deliver up
.riie Prussian officer to court martial,
and everything it in readiness for
the trial. The rumble of guns near
at band causes a lull in tbe court
martial proceedings; the Prussian
takes \ advantage of this to leap
through tbe window, the soldiers
start toXfire on him, the countess
springs in front of -their guns, they
fail to hre, and thus the figure of
the fieupg Prussian officer ia saved
from tnracture.”

The Chinese are said to have loat
A,ooo. The Herald’s Washington
advices say a cipher diapatch re-
ceived this afternoon and communi-
cated to the president aavs not only
are Imperial troop* attacking tbe
legations again, but the Chinese
government is actually conniving to
bring about the assassination of tbe
ministers. While no action baa aa
yet been taken the United States
ts nearer to 'declaring war than it
haa been since tbe trouble began.
Li Hung Cbaag says the Chinese
must fight, it is the only course left
them. It appears that the allies
have only 16,000 men. Conger haa
sent another cipher dispatch that
tbe situation is desperate.

The state democratic convention
convenes at Waco to-morrow. The
interest is extraordinary when it is
considered that Gov. Sayers and his
associates have no opposition, and
there is bat little more than passing
interest in the making of a platform.
Tbe Kansas City platform will be
reaffirmed, and tbe administration
of Gov. Sayers will receive the
usual perfunctory plaudits.
Five persons were killed and two

THURSDAY. AUO. Q.
The democratic factions are at
loggerheads at the Waco conven-
tion. Tbe Waco dispatch to tbe
Dallas News says: The most sccri-
monious and bitter fight in the histo-
ry of the democratic party of Texas
since the day when Richard Coke
dethroned Edward J. Davis is on.
Tbe forces are lined up in battle
array. To-day there was skirmish-
ing, to-morrow the decisive battle
will be fought. It will be a battle
royal with tbe state administration
and Hon. Joseph Weldon Bailey
pitted against ex-Gov. James S.
Hogg and Hon. M. M. Crane of
Dallas. Hogg and Crane are array-
ed against Bailey and Tom Smith of
Hill county and only a call of the
roll will settle tbe struggle. Con-
gressman Bailey opened the ball in
an hour’s speech in which he flayed
alive those who have imputed to
him improper motives in connection
with the relicensing of the Waters-
Pierce Oil Company to do business
in Texas. Mr. Bailey was very
sensational, very dramatic in his
utterances at times, and closed by
denouncing those who were fighting
him as “scoundrels” and “liars.
Ex-Gov. Hogg followed Mr. Bai-
ley. - His remarks were free from
personalities, but were strong and
characteriaticallyHogg. The ex-Gov-
ernor repeated bis Galveston speech
with variations, denounced the daily
newspapers and called upon the
delegates to the convention to repud-
iate the action of Attorney General
Smith and Secretary of State Hardy.
Then came Crane of Dallas, tbe ex-
attorney general who fought the
trust fight to ^finish, and who used
vigorous language in denouncing the
action of tbe State officials for re-
admitting the Waters-Pierce Oil
Company to do business in tbe
State.
Tbe news from China is very
tame. Tbe allied troops are push
ing on to Pekin.
At Indianapolis Hon. W. J. Bryan
and Hon. Adlai E. Stevenson were
officially and formally notified of
their nominations by tbe democrats
at their recent Kansas City conven-
tion to the offices respectively of
President and Vice-President of the
United States. Tbe ceremony was
made the occasion of a popular
demonstration, and with it the dem
ocrats may be said to have tairly
begun their national campaign.

In the great battle between
Bob Fitzsimmons and Rhulan, Fitz
knocked tbe Ohio giant out in six
rounds. Tbe purse was for $30,-

The best' proof of future life U thst
every nation has a God to whom It
clings tenaciously. The average China-
mar believes In Confucius just as strong
as did his ancestors four thousand years
ago and will die in the faith.
We don’t kmw in what paper tbe
above originated, but it is a fair
sample ot lots of stuff that finds its
way into newspapers. Having a
national God is no evidence of im-
mortality. The three hundred and
fifty millions of Buddhists are pan-
theists, and instead of believing in
immortality consider the greatest
blessing is to be finally absotbed
into the soul of the universe, that is
annihilation, the final destiny of the
whole human family. Confucius
was not born four thousand years
ago, not quite 3,500 years ago, and
he was not a believer in immortality
and did not teach it. Hts moral
maxims were confined to the duties
person owes to himself and his
fellow men. Belief in immortality
is a matter of faith. It is unprova-
ble.

The secretary of the Denison Fair
should be more generous with the
press ot North Texas this year than
he was last. The papers last year
were liberal in publishing notices of
the Fair, and received in returB
stag” invitations. Married editors
usually take their wives with them
when they go to such entertain-
ments, and are not inclined to take
the risk of being held up at tbe gate
for the price of a ticket. Compli-
mentary tickets sent out to editors
should read, editor and lady.
There is not a newspaper man who
visits a fair on a complimentary
but does enough free advertising to
entitle him to the price of two ad-
mission tickets. The Gazetteer
has no doubt the new secretary,
Mr. Faires, will see that the news-
paper fraternity are properly taken
care of, for he is quite a lady’s man
himself and appreciates the services
of the newspaper press.
Sherman’s assessable values this
year are $5,120,200, an increase
over last year of $269,157. The

year it was $1.06.
8onth Side Democratic Ulub.
The democrats of South Denison
have organized a democratic club,
and are already having plans pre-
pared tor the erection of a perma-
nent club room.- Tbe building is to
be 30x60 feet, two stories, the hall
will be in the second story. The
first floor will be occupied by a
family grocery and dry goods store.
The location is a central one, on
the corner of Hull street and Hous-
ton avenue. Councilman Calvert
says their club will soou number
over two hundred members, and
they anticipate a membership of
three hundred. Each member con-
tributes $10 to the building fund.
Laid to Best.
The funeral of Mrs. Hal Thomp-
son was one of the most -beautiful
and impressive ever witnessed in
Denison.
In spite of the downpour there
was an immense turnout of sympa-
thizing friends. All present were
deeply affected, many to tears, ss
tbe grave, closed over the lifeless
form of one whom they had loved
*0 much in life.
There were many notable floral
tributes, tbe most beautiful being a
pillow, the gift of the postoffice
force. The services were held at
the home of Mrs. Darby. The
Rev. Kincaid paid a touching trib
ute to tbe exalted character and
worth of tbe dead lady. The post
office force acted as pall bearers.
In the old cemetery just at the out
skirts of tbe cn^, the bo^y of

In ppint of attendance the enter-
tainment at the Old Settlers’ grounds
near Sherman the past week wss a
great success, but there was little to
call to mind the Old Settlers’ pic-
nics of years ago, when tbe farmers
and their families came together
once a year to have a social good
time with old friends and neighbors,
renew acquainUnces with town folk
and enjoy a jolly, social reunion.
The “meet” is now turned into a
money-making occasion. Gambling
devices were spread likri webs to
catch flies all over tbe grounds to
abstract tbe dimes and quarters from
the farmers’ boys’ pockets, and
catch-penny schemes figured aa lead-
ing attractions. The law against
gaming was suspended on tbe
grounds and the fakirs were in their
glory. The old-fashioned family
pic-nic is apparently a thing of tbe
past so far as Grayson county is con-
cerned.

Danger of Militarism.
[Extract from Altgeld’* Answer to Rose-
velt ] -v
I again read from the Governor’s
peech as follows: “Of all idle chat-
ter, the talk of danger of imperialism
is the idlest.”
Let us see. Heretofore our regu-
lar or standing army has generally
consisted of from 22,000 to 25,000
men. But in December, 1S9S, about
the time the President issued hie
order to Gen. Otis to begin the war
of conquest, when the Spanish war
was over, when we were at peace
with the world, when nobody was
threatening us, when all that the
Philippine people asked of us was
that we should treat them tbe same
as tbe Cubans, the President sent a
message to Congress asking to have
tbe regular army increased to 100,-
000 men. What for ? If we were
in danger, why not call tor volun- j
teers? Volunteers fought the Revo-
lutionery war and founded this re-
public ; volunteers drove the English
off of our shores in 1S12 ; volunteers
planted tbe stars and all over Mexi-
co; volunteers fought the greatest
war tor liberty ever waged, struck
down slavery and cemented tbis
union; and in 189S volunteers
came to tbe front and struck down
the last vestige of ancient despotism
00 this hemisphere.
The glory of our republic has
been written with tbe valor and
blood of our volunteers. They
founded it and they have defended
it and made it great. Yet now, in
time of peace, a republican Presi-
dent asks, not for volunteers, but for
regular soldiers. Why ? Because
we are departing from the ways of
the fatbets ; we are going into rival-
ry with the despotic nation* of Eu-
rore in governing people by brute
force, and we must have the ism’
kind of machinery that our rivals
have used in that business.

In the good old days of Kentucky
there was a court composed of three
magistrates to try a certain case ap-
pealed from a single justice of the
peace, says a Denver Times writer.
The three magistrates were back-
woodsmen. A case was very im-
portant and several hours of listen-
ing to the reading of depositions and
argument of counsel, pro and con,
and pro and con again, had so near-
ly entangled the court in a labyrinth
ot perplexing questions of law and
fact that they doubted their ability
to blaze their way out. So they”
whispered to tbe leading lawyer at
the bar, who was sitting as a specta-
tor, and asked him what he thought
ought to be done with the case.
“I think it ought to be thrown out
of court,” was the prompt and em-
phatic reply.
That settled it.
“Mr. Clerk,” said the ch;et mag-
istrate, “pass up them papers.”
The papers, which made quite a
laige bundle, were handed to tbe
chief magistrate.
“Now, Mr. Sheriff,” said he de-
liberately, “open that window.”
The sheriff opened tbs window
and the case was thrown out of
court.
The feud that followed lasted for
fifteen years.
