Cleveland : “ Mr. Cleveland has
been the worst hated man in some
sections of this country that ever
held the presidential reins. The
that will never be forgotten by
those who heard him, warned
those about him that the end of
the fight marked the beginning of

Governor Hogg has * takpn
prompt action iu regard to the
“ whitecaps ” iu Smith county,
who, it is reported have threaten-
ed to burn the gins if their ownerf

of the governor he should receive
the support of all law-abiding
citizens of the state. There is ne
room for whitecapiem in Texas.
A strict enforcement of the lav

The word “ crank ” at the present
time covers a multitude of de-
signs and sins and ways that are
dark and steeped in vilensess.
As far as we can learn a verj

the number is still on the increase

the school question than there

Prendergrast went to Mr. Harri-
son’s home, called for him and on
first sight shot him three times,
making two wounds sufficient to
cause death. Prendergrast was a
paper carrier who declared that
Harrison promised to make him
corporation counsel and had no*
kept his word, this he said was
the only reason for committing
the crime. In a few minutes af-
ter the shooting he gave himself
up stating what he had done. One
of Mr. Harrison’s intimate friends
said he had knowu for Borne time
that Prendergrast was insane but
their heads that Mr. Cleveland
aspires to be a dictator. This is
all rot. If the people will be as

platform declared aj^iAYiSi^the

publican atrocities, and Mr. Cleve
land-desired that the objectiona-
ble law should be repealed. A
majority of his party friends in
the senate have now come over
to the same way of thinking, and
the Sherman law will undoubtedly
be repealed. When that is done aud
the tariff has been readjusted, and
you may look for an income tax

hope now is that our senators
will go in for the repeal of the

the country may have ample op-

The Closing Scene
Washington, Oct. 30—At 7:20,
by a vote of 43 to 32 the senate,
after one of the most remarkable
and memorable parliamentary
battles of the generation, passed
the bill unconditionally repealing
the purchase clause of the Sher-
man silver law. The end was
reached at the conclusion of a
continuous session of fourteen
days, after sixty-one days’ debate
during which five volumes of the
Congressional Record have been
filled with speeches amounting to,
n the aggregate, about 20,000,000
words—a stream of talk that
wonld stretch in cold type from
“ Liberty Enlightening the World ”
in New York harbor to the foot
of the hills of the Rocky moun-
tains. The closing day was a
great struggle for the repeal, one
of intense excitement. The galler-
ies were packed to the doors and
every seat in the senate was occu
pied and the walls were lined
with representatives from the,
lower branch of congress. The
aegis of senatorial courtesy was
no protection in the last moments.
Gray-haired men did not spare
each other. Morgan fairly heap-
ed denunciation on Voorhees, the
leader of the administration
forces, and Wolcott of Colorado,
the Hotspur, concluded a fierce
phillippio against Senator Carey
with the Spanish proverb of
Sancho I’anza that it was a waste
of lather to shave an ass. The
silver Republicans Teller, Stew-
art, Dubois, Wolcott aud Jones ;
l’effer, the popnlist, and Morgan
and the old war governor of
Tennessee, Harris, each made his
valedictory. The Democrats
were hot and angry at the deser-
tion of some their colleagues t hat
made defeat possible. The popu-
lists warned the senate that the
doom of silver was the doom of
the old parties, bat there was
something tragically pathetic in
the despairing cry of the silver
con- senators. It meant, they said,
ruin, destruction and desolation

concerning Mr. Mr. Junes, with an emphasi.-

Colorado and Repeal.
Denver, Colo., Oct. 30—The
announcement that the senate
passed unconditional repeal was
a heavy blow to the people of
Colorado, although tiny hardh
expected any favorable silver leg-
islation daring the present ad-
Among the mining men the de-
pression is considerable and it is
only a matter of time when ail
the mines will be compelled to
close. New York Chance and
List Chauco mines, the two larg-
est in the state, caunot produce
silver should the price drop 'op-
low 65 cents an ounce and the
present indications are that mark
wili be reached before long. Oth-
er mines may be able to stand a
few cents further reduction, but
the number is small.
Speaking editorially, The Re-
publican will sayThe passage
of the unconditional repeal is a
great calamity and is going to
lead to terrible consequences at
the East and iu the silver pro-
“There are more than 100,000
people in Colorado who depend
almost entirely upon the silver
mining industry for support. If
the price of silver continues to
iail until production is stopped
the hardships it will cause will
simply be incalculable. There
does not seem to be any ray of
hope in sight either. There is no
probability and scarcely a possi-
bility that any legislation favora-
ble to silver will command the
ate which passed the uncondi-
tional repeal biil yesterday gave
a majority for free coinage last
year. The change from that atti-
tude reflects only the present
predominance of organized money
influence over the Democratic
aud Republican parties, enforced
by all partisan power of the ad
ministration and all official patron-
age at the command of Abe presi-
dent. The vote yesterday iudi-
Cites no reaction among the peo-
ple against the full mintage rights
of silver and its claim of legal
equality with gold at an estab-
lished ratio. The sentimeut for

and a money supply which shall
be shaped by and for the people
is now infinitely stronger than
eighteen m^h^go. The pas-
sage of the bill^^Hfciaugurate a
struggle between the American
producers and foreign American
power that will terminate only in
restoration of genuine popular
government and conditions that
will not subject the eruings and
property of the working people
to be confiscated under the color
“ Coronation ” at the World’s
Parliament of Religions.
The unique and imposing con-
course of the friends of religion,
met to tell their experience and
seek more light, was well under
way. Tiie platform was graced
with the learned and distinguished
votaries of the world’s ten great
religions, while the vast audience
was eagerly and enthusiastically
responsive to every word uttered.
The newly awakened sense of
human brotherhood and religions
sympathy, rested likea spell upon
people and speakers. All breath-
ed the atmosphere of kindly fel-
lowship, all felt that we were
standing at the threshold of a new
and better day.
The one lame and tame feature
of an otherwise incomparable rich
programme, was the devotional
exercises, which were perforce
brief, if not perfunctory. The
hea i was given far more than it
could bold, while the heart was
s-mt empty away. The white
dove of peace and good will hov-
ered over the august assembly,
there was no lack of toleration
and generosity, but still it was a
parliament, where differences of
opinion and even some tension of
feeling, were quite unavoidable,
though never overtopping the
prevailing good nature.
Our foreign visitors found occa-
sion to give ns Christians a sharp
and merited dig nr two in the rib:
A Japanese complained of the le-
gal disabilities to which his coun-
trymen are subjected by Christian
nations; a Brahman monk said
the Englishman came to India
holding The Bible, in one hand and
the bottle in the other; a gentle
and learned Buddhist, who holds
of Cleveland’s administration as rying a silk banuer with the an-
well as their Eastern brethren.” nouncement: “Twenty millions
The Rocky Mountain News of children are freely loved and
will say :“ The United States sen- instructed in Christian Sabbath-
schools. We owe all this to
Jesns.” Close behind them march-
ed another delegation of all sorts
and conditions of children gather-
ed from our orphan asylums, train-
ing schools for Indians, reform
schools, institutions for the blind,
the homeless, the wayfarer and
unfortunate. One of their num-
ber carried the inscription: “ In-
asmuch as ye~havsdoue it uutn
one of the least of These-, little
ones, ye have done it unto me?
Then followed delegations from
our young people’s societies,
leagues, associations, and the va-
rious temperance and reform so-
cieties, each with an appropriate
inscription. What particularly
impressed the Orientals, was the
group of etalwayt young men car-
rying a red banner with a white
cross, and in letters of gold the
pledge of the White Cross Socie-
ty. Then came a still more unique
and incredible sight in the estima-
tion of the non-Christian on-look-
ers. A company of both men and
women appeared who were as
brands plucked from the burning.
There were evidences that intem-
perance and other forms of vice
had plowed deep and dark lines
across their faces, but shining
through and transfiguring all,
there was a new and heavenly
light and life that glowed in their
As one delegation after another
came upon the platform, it took
its assigned place in the huge
semi circle that was being formed,
until every form of Christian life
and activity was fully represented.
At this point of the proceedings,
it so appeared to me, the chair,
man stepped within the circle, and
pointing to the splendid array be-
fore him, he said to the non-Chris-
tian visitors: “These, brothers,
are the legitimate fruits of Chris-
tianity. We are engaged in fight-
ing the very evils you complain
of and we strive to renew individ-
ual and social life at the core.
Perfected Christian character is
what we strive to attain, and we
point you to Christ as the source.’*
Then the speaker went on to give
a brief account of our work for
the children, the activity of our
young people, temperance and
other societies, he mentioned the
names of our devoted philanthro-
pists, and paid a glowffig tribute
to Christian women.
Hereupon a learned Chinese
arose and said: “I have never
before known that religion can be
made valuable to little children.
How sweet and interesting are
your little girls.” A high-born
Brahman could not square the
scene before him with his ingrain-
ed ideas of caste, and still more
puzzled was a Mussulman, who
confessed that the sight of these
converted outcasts overthrew all
his previous notions about “fixed
fate,” he did not know that a mor-
al leper could he healed. When
the object of the White Cross
society was more fully explained,
I noticed that a significant silence
toll upon the non-Christian men
present, they were perhaps think-
ing of Benares and other centers
of heathen worship, where foul
abominations are practiced.
At this moment a native of India
snatched up a little orphan boy
and holding him in his arms, said:
“ If Je^us can give, through bis
atrenta, sueh a waif a home, train
kirn aud finally make a good aud
holy mai^T him, I think he ought,
to be worshiped as divine. I pro-
pose that we sing ajiymn heard in
one of yonr Sabbath schools,—do
I get the words right?—‘All hail
the power of Jesus’ name,’ -to„
close our meeting.” Then the
audience sang “ Coronation ” with
a will, as it had never been sung
before. A moment later I was
wide awake, borne along on the
ebbing tide of humanity leaving
the hall, pondering this thought:
“ If only we could give less of-
fence and increase the legitimate
fruits of the Gospel, how soon the
world would be converted! ”—

My daughter tried physicians
and nearly all remedies for female
irregularities, but received no re-
lief or benefit whatever. We had
nearly despaired of her recovery
when we were induced by our
postmaster, Mr. A. A. Gooding, to
try Gerstle’s Female Panacea, and
after using four bottles she was
entirely cured, for which I feel it
my duty to let it be known to the
world and suffering humanity, for
I believe she owes her life to the
