No. 17 North Main Street, Hutchinson The New York Sun says "the nomination of CI.KVKI.ANI ) would infallibly suhjeet the Democracy to one of the greatest political disusters that can befall a party." Hut CI.KVKI.ANI ) will be the nominee. Democracy can always be depended upon tojiualte just such n blunder. The Ohicag-o Herald, a Democratic journal of the Bourbon type, says "the defeat of the Democrats in Rhode Island, where the cunipaign was fought almost exclusively on national issues destroys the hope of securing a single Democratic vote in all New England outside of Connecticut." The Mobile Register declares" that the result of the Rhode Island election killed CI.KVKI.ANU so far as the presidential nomination is concerned. It Bays: "If his personal magnetism and the argument of his ablest lieutenants can avail little or nothing- in New England, there is no room for hope that he is stronger than his • party. The Democracy must carry New York. Can Mr. Cr.HVKt.ANU carry New York'.' That is the question that must be answered at Chicago." That question is answered already. Commenting on the indecent remarks of Saloon-Keeper WisaiG, in the New York assembly the other day, the New York Herald suys: "Language in debate may sometimes overstep the limits of parliamentary courtesy, but it should always be kept within the bounds of common decency. When a man uses expressions which cannot be printed, and does it in the hope of being regarded as wit, he ought to be screwed down to his seat at the beginning of the session and kept there until adjournment. Mr. Wmsw evidently finds Albany too much of a stimulant. His alleged brain has been affected by the onerous duties of his position and his constituency may profitably request him to retire to private life for repairs. At the present moment hej presents a pitiable spectacle." A Voyage of Discovery is the title of HAMILTON AIDE'S new bouk, which will be brought out soon by Harper & Brothers. It is not a book of travels, but a novel presenting an Englishman's impressions of society in Ne*w York, Boston, and elsewhere. .Some* well-known and prominent society people in New York are among the characters in the story. The book is •aid lb be partly the result of observations inade by the author during his recent tour in this country In eompauy with Mr. and Mrs. 1' IKNRV M. STAXI.KY AS Mr. Ainu is free from the prejudices so often indulged in by English observers of American manners, what he says of fashionable life in New York, Newport, and other places, will be of no little interest to a very large class of readers. The Leavenworth Times, in a phiivi- buical tone that illy becomes -a, conscientious newspaper, talks about the unfairness of reducing rates to the interior jobbers and not to the interior retailers. Tno Times is not talking in the interest of the retailers, for if it were it would demand a reduction in rotes not from Missouri river points, but from all jobbing points in the state. We nro in favor of a reduction in rates to retailers if the present rates are excessive, buUvhen these rates are made they must apply to all parts of tho state equally. Rutes east from Hutchinson must be just us low as rateB west from Leavenworth. They must be as low from Wichita as they are from Atchison. The reduction must be made fairly and honestly, without favoritism. When the Times Is , reoxly to demand such a *Ch«dule we are ready to join hands, but when it wants one rate for tho Kansas City jobber and a higher one for tho Hutchinson jobber it Is aotlug^he part Of a deuiagogue. The question of local rates, however, is another matter from that now un der contention. The inequality of which we complain, and which the Times has not had the honesty and backbone to condemn, Is the system of rates that forces the Hutchinson jobber to pay $1.01 per hundred for n carload of sugar from San Francisco, while another curload hauled right through Hutchinson is delivered at Leavenworth. 240 miles further, forO.1 cents per hundred. We are protecting against the. injustice of forcing Arkansas City and Wichita jobbers to pay (12 cents per hundred for sugar from New Orleans when sugar is hauled through those towns to KuusasCity for 30cents Now there is no occasion for equivocation, Mr. Times, Come right out and say whether that system is just or per nieioiis. A Lesson in Finance. Twenty years ngo the public debt of the United States was about 83,600. 000,000, now it is about $838,000,000. Twenty years ago the public debt of the Argentine Republic was947,000,000, and to-day it is not far from 81,495,000,000. While the United States has been liquidating its indebtedness at a marvellous rate, Argentine has been increasing hers even more rapidly According to a recent report of Consul lioKKi; to the state department the national bonded debt at the close of 1 mil) had reached 8335,782,141. Hut at the beginning of tho lust year the government made an internal loan of SO.000,000 in paper, and later on a "patriotic" internal loan of 943,000,000, also in pupur. It also completed at the same time a foreign montorium loan of 875,000,000 in gold. The provincial in debtednessj-eaches about $122,Uii0.000, and that of the cities of Buenos Ayres, Rosario and Cordoba about 820,000,000. To be added to these is a face lloating debt of 871,300,000, or 915,700,000 in gold and annual railroad guarantees of (54.024,474 in gold. The most deplorable feature of Argentine's financial affairs is the fact that there is serious talk of repudiating a portion of its public debt. The people are simply appalled by the magnitude of the obligation hanging over them, and repudiation is the only way they see out of the difficulties. They enjoyed the rainbow-hued bubble of inflation and fiat currency for a few brief months, but now they are confronted by the inevitable results of all being made "rich" by the government. It is to be hoped, however, for the sake of the future of the republic that the people will scorn repudiation, and set about to pay every dollar of indebted ncss the government owes. While the people of Argentine are settling the question of their public debt let the people of the United States read a page from the history of, fiat currency and lie warned in due season. The conservative policy of honest money, under which we have within the last twenty years liquidated 81,000,000.000 of our indebtedness, forced upon us by a civil war, is undoubtedly the best for us to pursue. Under that policy we have prospered as no other nation has ever prospered. The temporary advantages that might accrue to any classes through inflation would be more than counteracted by the evils that ure sure to follow in the wake of such financiering. An honest dollar is the best policy for the masses who toil for a living and know nothing of the trickery of speculation. The modus vivendi with I Sreat Iirit- ain, which hus just been renewed, is substantially that which was agreed upon for last year. Under its provisions both governments will prohibit the killing of seals within the limits laid down in the treaty of 1807 with Russia, except 7,500 for the subsistence of the natives on the islands of St. I'nul and St. tleorge. The clause which hus been added to the agreement provides for a settlement of damages sustained by Canadian poachers'in case the arbitration goes against this country. The naval vessels selected by this country for patrol duty are the Ranger, Yorktown, Mohican and Adams, which'will be reinforced by the revenue vessels Corwin, Rush and Albatross. Several British warships of the Pacific station will also take part in the duty. Philadelphia is awakening from her lethargy. Her papers now boast of the fact that a man can travel on her street cars Ave miles in fifty minutes, Too Muoll Hufrur Porgl. From the OsocalooHa Herald. One of your farmer friends, whose only fault is that he is a Democrat—and he Is not tp be blamed for that, for his father before him was dyed in the wool, and he never reads tho newspapers—cu me to town one day this week to buy some sugar. His good wife was putting up fruit and sW needed about fifteen pounds of sweetness. The dialogue in tho grocory ran about us follows: \ Farmer—What are you doing, young ruanV Clerk—Waiting on you. Weighing out your sugar. Farmer—How much arc you giving mo? Clerk->~A dollar's worth. .Farmer—Yes, 1 know, but how many pounds? Clerk—Twenty-four. Farmer—Twonty-four! Why, it used to bo only fourteen. Clerk—Yes. but.MeKinley did It. Farmer—Well, run her back and give mu only fourteen pounds. If I took home twenty-four pounds of su gar for SI the old woman would 1 make me vote the Republican ticket, and I'll be hanged if I'll do that. HER" NINETY-SEVENTH BIRTHDAY.

She is tho daughter of Samuel Cook, of Boston, and Atin Brown, of Plymouth, Vt. When but eight years old her father mado a voyage with his father to the West Indies. About this time the Revolutionary war broke out. On the lad's return homo the vessel in which he sailed was cup- s. F. FiLLMortE. tured by an English privateer. Aftei being held a prisoner for several years he escaped and returned to Boston. Upon the admission of Vermont as the fourteenth state, ho went to Plymouth to seok his.fortune.' Here he became -a civil engineer and married Miss Brown. Susan was their second child. She was born on the 12th of March, 170T). On growing up she found tho educational facilities of Plymouth very limited. The school houso was an old log cabin, and around it tho children often saw the tracks of wild beasts. When Susan was fourteen years old her parents removed to Jay, Essex county, N. Y., where the schools were about like that in Plymouth. Learning that there was an academy at Plattsburg, forty miles distant, she made hor way there penniless. She gained a livelihood by making clothes for the soldiers of the war of 1812, which was then in progress. In the course of time she became the head of a young ladies' school. When President Monroe visited Plattsburg sho and her pnpils strewed his pathway near the school with flowers. Later she became tho wife of tho Rev.

The only one living is Dr. Fillmore, of Providence. Mrs. Fillmore ia very fond of poetry, and has written much herself. Sho mado her ninety- fifth birthday especially notable by writing a poem on the occasion. NEGRO GIRLS AS HOSPITAL NURSES. Recent Experiment Has Shown That Tli.ry Are Competent. In January, 1S91, several colored citizens of Chicago were in conference, and learned with surprise that there was not in the United .States, and perhaps not in the world, a hospital for colored people. They at once resolved to have one, and with it a training school for colored nurses, and $300 was raised on i thojspot. Small contributions camo in rapidly, and on May i, lb'01. the little hospital at the corner of Twenty-ninth and Dearborn streets was opened to the sick of all races and nations. Similar institutions were soon established in New York, San Antonio, Kan•as City and other places, and now every one who investigates it wonders why it was not done before. Colored women are confessedly among the best nurses THE PnOVIDF .NT HCMPITAL. in the world, and there is a painful lack of opportunities for tho young and enterprising among them. It would seem tho most natural thing that they should be scientifically trained for nurses. Tho Chicago hospital is an old three Btory brick, and over the door are the words "Provident Hospital." It is often so crowded with patients that the nurses have to sleep in chairs, yet their zeal and application are unwearied. Ovor 250 patients have been treated, of whom a third were white, and all aro enthusiastic in praiso of tho colored woman's capacity for scientific nursing. The pupilB learn anatomy, physiology, pathology and how to cook tempting dishes for the convalescent. But there is room for - very few, and hundreds of applicants aro turned away. Those who have investigated the experiment think a great problem has been solved and that neat and fairly well educated colored girls aro to be the nation's nurses. Ex-Senator EdimiuoV Vaoiltfou.

THE JOKE ON THE LONDON TIMES. VhcToutllful CorreflimnOetit Who Evoked Ono of Its MoKt I'omh'i-oiift Kriltorlaln. Only fifteen years have passed over the head of Walter Scott, tho boy whose bombastic and defiant letter led the Loudon Times to publish a long and ponderous comment on it. Ho was born in Dunkirk, Chautauqua county, N. Y., where ho has boon living with his grandfather, J. T. Williams, editor of The Evening Observer. His father is chief engineer of the Coininbus Construction company, of Chicago. He is, Of WALTER SCOTT, course, a bright boy. From his earliest childhood he has been a pupil in the Dunkirk schools. Besides his regular Btnilies ho has always been a ravenous reader of history and tho current newspapers. He has also done some reportorial writing for his grandfather. But his regular duties in Tho Observer office were those of an assistant in the mailing department. During the controversy of tho United States with Chili ho became very much interested in tho subject. He read everything relating to .it, including the opinions of the English press. He was in the habit of supplementing the knowledge thus obtained by sending for particular copies /of the London Times, whose views did not please him. One day it occurred to him to write a letter to that paper giving his own views. After carefully composing it he mailed it to Tho Times and awaited results. Ho signed a fictitious name, believing that it would attract more attention than his own.' In this matter he was not mistaken. Some days lator he had the satisfaction of seeing iu tho foreign dispatches, which he had watched carefully, that The Times had made a reply. He was disappointed, hqwever, that the full text of his letter was not published. He then told his family what he had done, and showed them a copy of the original manuscript. This was published in his grandfather's paper, and the" joke on the great London paper then became known. One Mora Unl'ortunute. Frcnn the New York Herald. Gen. Alger, of Michigan, had a little presidential boom of his own. He was as fondly proud of it as a girl is of her first doll. He talked flamboyantly about it, and at one time really thought it was growing and would come to something in the sweet by and bv He hits u powerful imagination, by means of which he saw himself in a chariot of popular favor making a triumphal progress to Washington and the White House. But the boom has collapsed like a pricked balloon and nothing is left except the faintly echoed words, "Now that I so soon am done for, 1 wonder what 1 was begun for." Nobody paid any attention to it and it pined away for want of nourishing recognition. Like a pack of cards in a magician's hands, it grew smaller every minute and at last disappeared altogether.
