The writer hereof was traveling down Mallory gulch, in the Bear gulch diilri't in July.

It was not a democratic convention that met on the island. They are Petti-rrats. Pettigrcw knew what he wa:i doing when he called his Petticrat convention. He surrounded them with water, for he knew lint no true blue, rock-ribbed, copper bottom, steeled ribbed democrat ever yet took water in any sense. But you make a mistake if you go fishing. You want to go gunning and help clean out the buccanneer who lias stoien the old democratic ship and manned it with pops, anarchists, so cialists and God knows what. 1 think it is the duty, of every true democrat to don his war paint, get a gun and take the warpath, clean out the piratical ere wand rescue the grand old democratic ship before they befoul it so that it will be a stench in the nostrils of true Americans who believe that Jefferson, Madison, Mon roe, Jackson and their associates knew better what democracy was than does Bryan, Altgeld, Pettlgrew and that gang. "Don't give up the ship," but with pike and cutlass let's board her and clean out the gang. Yours Truly, JAMES A. GEORGE. A FORMER GALENAITE. Well to the front in the French capital. The following extract Is from the Denver Times-Sun, June 27: PARIS, June 9.- It is safe to affirm that Mr. and Mrs. Thomas F. Walsh of Colorado are the most popular Americans in Colorado tonight. This afternoon National Commissioner Walsh and his charming wife gave a delightful afternoon on the Seine, which, in all its appointments, surpassed any entertainment given in Paris by Americans sinceHhe opening of the exposition. The day was simply perfect, one of the finest of the year, and the banks of the Seine were lined with people of all nationalities, who cheered the two boatloads of Americans' as they steamed down the far-famed river, with the American flags flying and the band !'v '"' I 1 have 1 Items of Interest Gleaned From Various Sources of Information. Hiils for supplies will be opened at Fort Meade next Monday, and the Sturgis record says muc h inte rest is being taken in how they will run. There is no hav in that region, and fin grJuu. Ken Nebraska hay is go ing to In- Hue h higher this year than ever before, lor the reason that all the big c attle lompatiies are buying heavily for leading purposes. In view of this situation it is e xpected that thu bids submitted this year will be unusually high. I he Mail says the free delivery system recently established in the valley is proving an immense success. The amount of mail matter has nearly doubled each week since the routes wore started, and the collection of letters has grown from an average of less than four to more than twenty. The Burlington Railroad company is building a new engine house at Spearflsh, to take the place of the one destroyed by fire several months ago. The engine that ws in the house at the time it burned has since been re paired and is in the service agin. ('. A. Scott of Spearfish recently bought 400 bead of Angora goats in Omaha, and expects them to arrive within a few days. He says they are superior to sheep in many ways. Their fleece brings ;if and 40 cents a pound, and an animal will produce a heavier clip than a sheep.. The goats are hardier than sheep, able -to stand the c limate better, require e;.s attention and are just as marketable. Mr. Scott recently drove II. 100 head of yearling cattle across the country from Pierre to the Black Hills. A gun club has been organized at Speartisli. .

The cause c Alexander M' Ken at ( 'lib a::o l'i iila f lnr d' ath i sup posed to have been cancer. The news of her death was not entirely unexpected, but the shock to the entire community was gnat when they learned that the end had come. Mrs. McKenzie was a woman who was loved by all her friends and was of a kind and sympathetic disposition, always ready to lend a helping hand to any one in need and was a friend to be desired. She has been in poor health for only about four months, and when she began to fail there were fears of cancer, as her mother died about three years ago with oncer of the throat. With a desire to leave nothing undone that might add to her cSmfort and recovery. Mr. McKenzie accompanied his wife to Chicago about six weeks ago for the purpose of consulting with the best medical uthorities In the land upon her case. She was taken to the Presbyterian hospital of Chicago, where her case was given every possible attention. An operation was at first thought necessary and shortly after arriving what is known as an exploratory operation was performed. After this the physicians gave no encouragement for her recovery and an operation was considered to be of no benefit, it was expected that Mr. and Mrs. McKenzie would retniii home several days ago. but she evidently took a sudden change for the worse. She was married to Mr. McKenzie nearly thirty years ago at Richmond, Indiana, the home of her birth and childhood days, and together they lived In Kansas, Colorado and other western states until in the year 1878 they came to the Hills, and resided in Deadwood for a time and later moved to Elk Creek, where Mr. McKenzie had charge of the Hearst store. About fifteen years ago they moved to Lead, where Mr. McKenzie had charge of the Hearst store and where they have made their home since, Mr. McKenzie having charge of the Hearst store in this city. The deceased was indeed a noble woman In every attribute, .being kindly and sympathetic with those .who were unfortunate, and of an uncom plaining, patient and lovable disposition. Her presence here among a large circle of friends will be sadly missed. She was of a prominent family in Richmond, Ind., named Ernest, some of whose members are living there at tue present tfme. The deceased leaves no children, but a loving husband Is left whose grief must be almost unbearable, at the loss of one who had been bo kind and careful of his comfort for over a quarter of a century. The remains were taken to Richmond, where the funeral will take Mis.

In the Miners I'nioii hall the Lead firemen had a grand ball in the afternoon and evening, and the capacity hall was tax ed to its utmost. The city hall was the firemen's headquarters and here refreshments were served to visiting members. There were the usual lemonade, ice cream add fruit booths, ring games, merry-go-rounds, etc.. in cideiit to an occasion of this kind, and as most of them were under cover they were able afford amusement to the manj who had money to spend in that way. In the afternoon the rain ceased, altho it remained cloudy and the sporting events that were announced thru the i oliimns of the paper took place, but under very trying c-in urn stances, as the track was in a hcirri bly miulilc condition, but the contest ants for the various events insisted on having' them, regardb of cnmli I ions, prize comp C 1 1 I., ad pany the 1 ai d ai (hey wne called.

The Lead team had the lead for the greater portion of th run but one of their runners slipped and fell and was the means of causing considerable loss of time to the team and they were unable to recover from this enough to win the race. The: Central boys had a good team and a right to win. In fact th Central City contestants were very much in evi dence 111 all events and succeeded 111 carrying off the honors in all events in which the y entered. I pon inquiry at the 1). C passenger office, we learned that nearly fifteen hundred tickets had been sold yesterday, and a conservative estimate of the number who would have come to Lead had it not rained would be six to eight hundred additional. Dead-wood did herself proud as it was, and in fact the entire surrounding country was more than liberal in their attend ance upon this occasion. In the evening and to close the day's celebration a magnificent dis play of fireworks from every portion of the city was visible and waa enjoyed by the many visitors who still lingered in the City of Mills as well as by the Leadltes.. Taking all conditions at their worth the celebration was a success altho not what it would have been had the weather been favorable to the occasion. In the-c fat men's race, Sherm Den- man won the first prize, with James Lonegan a close second. Henry Don ovan entered, Duj'he was not in . it for a minute, and when he came thru it was discovered that there was something else that he was not in. It was difficult to procure the ser vices of a tailor, so he had to go home. o Joe Leonard is suffering considera ble pain from a severely smashed foot. The accident occurred down the Burlington line, where Mr. Leonard was engaged in handling some tim ber. He is now accompanied on his rounds by a pair of crutches which will doubtless be his companions for several days yet. I the . omli-aking streets were in a bad. muchly 1 lion and families were s.-en for their homes between tin- showers. Ladies and children in their light summer dresses and (lowered straw hats soon showed the effe. ts of the Ijltle drops of rain, and the faces mat a snort time lietore were pleas ant to look upon now showed signs of pent-up feelings of disappointment and we dare say a desire in many eases to i iiss a little. That the occa sion would have been a grand sue cess was evinced by a large crowd that was upon the street at as early an hour as it o'clock in the morning. The city was crowded with hundreds of citizens from Deadwood. Central Terraville and Bald Mountain districts, and from all points of the valley-all here to meet in brother hood upon this- greatest of American days and join in making the celebra tion one grand and patriotic affair l p to the time or the commencee- ment of the rain, about 10 o'clock every train to the city was crowded and backs and carriages were bring ing loads from every direction and it was certain that there were lain tired 3 who would nave been with us upon mis day w tin stayed away on account of the inclemency of the weather. The grand parade was formed at 11 o clock in the forenoon but had not proceeded more than half the dis tance as planned when the rain began to fall and the line of march was shortened and disbanded as soon as possible .altho thoroly good order was maintained, despite the rain. The line formed with the mounted police in the lead. Marshal Dave Morgan commanding. The head of the procession formed on Mill street, with the K. of P. band, followed by the Uniform Ranak K. of P., Christopher Columbo society, Slavonian society. Second Division,- William T. Con- nell, commanding; Woodmen's band, followed by the various societies and the C. G. & T. Hose company of Central; the Deadwood fire department, Hose Company N6. 1, Hose Company No. 2, the Alert Hose company and the South Lead company, the different floats and the carriages containing the mayor and the mayor and city council. The ead-ood fire department was largely represented .there being about one hundred and forty members in line upon one length of rope, and a banner reading, ''Deadwood Hook & Ladder, 1377." was attached to the rope along the section where the members of this company marched.
