The oheerlng news now ocmes from
Oanton that Senator Ed Wolcott and
General Francis A. Walker ere going
abroad at Major McKinley's Instance
to dtsoover what Earopean sentiment
la on the sabjsot of en International
bimetallic conference. Having made
the discovery, they will return to the
Halted States and pnt their Informa-
tion Into the hands of the president
elaot, who by that time will be the
president, and the natural inference la
that, If It be favoiable, Mr. MoKtnley
will take the neoeseary steps toward
snob a conference. If It should be
anfavotable, It may juitlfHbly be sap-
posed that he will do nothing In the
matter, bat devote his entire time end
attention to the tariff, the milt bosses
and the trasts.
All advocates of bimetallism, lnolud
tog those who have favo ed Indepen-
dent bimetallism In the belief that In
ternatlonal bimetallism was Impossi-
ble, will hope that Messrs. Woloatt atd
Walker may find an Irresistible stnll-
m*nt In Europe for such a conference
as Is desired, and for an International
agreement as the ontoomeof the con-
ference. It la known that not only
Mr. Balfour bat three other members
of th* Salisbury government In Eng-
land are bimetallist*; that ths bimetal-
lic league of Qreat Britain Includes In
s membership some of the most In
fiasntlal financiers of the kingdom;
that public sentiment In Franoe Is
overwhelmingly favorable to bimetal-
lism, whloh brought the republic
triumphant and solvent through a
long orlsls that proved heavily in-
jurious to other nations, and whloh en
abled her to pay the German war
Indemnity not osly without difficulty,
but also without straining bar re-
sources; end that Usrmany Is avid for
ohange fr m (he monometallic
But whm It Is considered that ths
Interests of Lombard Street, of the
Paris Bourse and of the Berlin Ex-
change are unalterably oppo- ed to bi-
metallism, just as the lnlereets of Wall
and Broad streets In New Y’ork and of
La Salle street In Ohloago are opposed
to It no less nnaltersbly, there seems
to bs reason to fear that these
Interests may be able lu the
fature, as they have been lu the past,
to block all attempts to obtain jmtlo*
for the mass of the people who snff*r
from an appreciating nnlt of value.
Perhaps Messrs. Wolcott and Walktr
may show this fear to belli founded,
ir eo they will earn tha applause of
millions of their osnntrymen and of
millions of foreigners.
Bat though they should fall to do
so, at least their appointment by Major
McKinley proves that the Repnblloan
party, whloh he represents and typt
fits, agrees with the Dsmoorats that
the present monetary standard and
system are evil and that bimetallism
Is to be desired. —New York Journal.

THE SUPREME COURT.

Washington, Jan. 4—Tha supreme
court today reversed several decision*
of th* 1st* J edge Parker, of the western
district of Arkansas.
Among theie was tha case of Henry
Sarr, who appealed from the sentenoe
of death for mnrder In the Indian ter-
ritory, whloh was Starr’s seoond oon-
vlotion. The appeal In this oase was
based upon the teobntoal ground that
the warrant was admitted as testimony
In the absence of the official seal. Jus-
tice White reudered the opinion In this
oase ordering a third trial.
Another oase of considerable interest
from th* Indian territory, deolded In
favor of tha appelate, was that of Jess

however, thot the marriage bad been
conducted without full observance of

now the Caliph rrnvlded For the Illness
ot the Public Executioner.
“Yes, eire,” responded tho grand vizier,
with a most humble salaam.
“I sentenced a number of malefactors
to death yesterday, did I not?”
“Allah’s most glorious representative
on earth was pleased to order the extermi-
nation of two and twenty Christian dogs—
yes, sire,” murmurs Giafar, with another
waist movement salaam.
“And have my orders and the Christian
dogs been executed?” queried the caliph.
“Alas, sire, tho publlo executioner lies
at tho point of death.”
“Now, by the beard of the prophet," 1
testily observed tho caliph, “the publlo
executioner Is developing symptoms of
pantatalsm. It Is tho public executioner’s
duty to stand at tho point of death, not to 1
lie. Bid him bring his sclmlter and re- !
port for duty forthwith In the oourtyard.” j
“Alas, sire, Mohammed’s most worthy j
understudy does not grasp his servant's :
meaning. Tho public executioner groans
in wearinosa of spirit and lies 111 unto '
death. Already at tho office of Tho Mus-
sulman’s Delight his obituary stands pre-
pared upon the galleys.”
“Giafar, did our serone mightiness un-
derstand yon to say two and twenty Chris-
tian dogs await death?”
“Two and twenty, commander of the
“Let them be assembled In the court-
yard at once, and—stay, Giufaxl”
“Bid the court barbers assemble and
shave tho heads of tho condomneil.1'
“Tho child of the prophet speaks, and
his servants oboy.”
“This being done, Giafar, you will sep-
arate this band of Christian dogs into two
sections, consisting of 11 men in each.
Give them a copy of the Rugby rules, with
the latest approved American college hom-
icidal amendments, and bid them play
football to a finish. ”
“Justice and equity He ever m the heart
of Mohammed’s favorite son, ” said Giafar,
with a shudder.
“ See that the gates are securely locked,
Giafar, and loave these dogs to their fate.
After tho muezzin lias called the faithful
to evening prayer bid the mutes remove
the dead and cast them over the outer wall.
To those who survive, if any there be, you
will cause to be road a technical story of
tho game written by one of the ladies of
the harem. Death will speedily ensue.”
"His elevated calmness has spoken, and
his will is a law unto his servants, of
whom Giafar is tho least. Allah be prais-
ed!” said tho grand vizier, moving from
the oaliph’s presence with another series
of graceful salaams.
“Public executioners may come and
go,” soliloquized tho caliph, “but a good
government club will nover be needed in
Bagdad while my thinking apparatus
clings to its trolley. Allah is groat, and
Mohammed is his propliot, but I cannot
refrain from remarking incidentally that
Haroun-al-Raschid, caliph of Bagdad, is
considerable of a peach himself.”—New
"Miss Brown, I am glad to see you
think you can lead the stylo in dress.”
“That must be sarcasm, Miss Jones.
You have your own ambitions in that di-
rection. What is the trouble?”
“Nothing at all, I’m suro. Of course If
you want to wear a bustle there’s no law
to stop you.”
“I’m not wearing a bustle, and it’s
mean of you to say so.”
“Well, here I am sitting right behind
you, and you know I’m going to wear the
cunnlngesti little russot shoes on com-
mencement day. And yet you’ve got your
skirts so spread over them that nobody can
6oe my feot.”
