The Weekly Ledger. THURSDAY, MAY !. Champ Clark on Silver. Lamar, Mo., May 23. Yielding to a request from a largo number of citizens, ex-Congressman Champ Clark, between lectures, delivered a rousing address here last night on silver to an enthusiastic audience, which filled the Onera Houee to overflowing. Ho did not mince matters, but expressed himself in a manner impossible of misunderstanding or of double construction. Ho said that the keynote of his speech was this sentence: "The financial legislation of this country from 1861 to the present time, taken all in all, is ttie greatest outrage perpetrated on a free people." In that spirit he spoke for two hours; and, judging irom me applause which ho received, It was evident the people were in touch with him. As to ratios he said: "I am in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver at IB to 1. That was the ratio when the unpardonable crime of 1373 was committed and if we really intend to redress that unpardonable wrong,we should restore silver to its place of ancient honor in the monetary system of the world. We can make a Detter fight on that ratio than any other. We have justice, right, honor and patriotism on our side. It appeals to the heart of the people, because silver has always been the money of the people. During the extra session of Congress In 1893, the Democrat of the South - ana TTest, Tn good tmtttr nnt to pre serve party harmony and maintain party Democratic supremacy If possi ble, voted for ratios ranging all the way from 18 to 1 to 20 to 1, and j we did not got many more votes for the highest than for the lowest ratios which demonstrated thoroughly to any mind that there is no sense in splitting hairs about ratios, because the Eautern men do not intend to have silver at any ratio, if they can prevent it by fair means or foul. Let no man deceive himself as to the situation. It is the remorseless purpose of the gold gang, whosa hoadtiuarters are in Lombard Street, London, and Wall Street, New York, to establish gold monometallism for their own selfish ends, to matter how much misery and bankruptcy it inflicts on the great body of the people. They call themselves 'international bimetallista.' It is not the first instance in which people have played the part of wolves in sbeeps' clothing. Napoleon said: 'Scratch a Russian and you'll strike a Tartar.' I say, 'Scratch an international bimetallist and you'll hear the clink of a gold bug's wings.' "The entire programme of the gold gang is to retire and cancel the 8346,-000,000 of greenbacks outstanding and to issue gold bonds in lieu thereof; to retire and cancel all outstanding silver notes and silver certificates and issue gold bonds in their stead; to absolutely stop the coinage of silver, and to take away from the silver now in circulation its legal tender quality. Then will begin the reign of the plutocrat, the evil consequences of which no man can measure. "Let it never be forgotten that a silver dollar was worth 10) cents in gold the day it was demonetized. If demonetizing silver in 1873 pot it down, why won't silver In 1S96 put It up? " It's a poor role that don't work both ways. "Of course it would be a great thing if silver could be'remonetized by common consent of all nations; but England will never consent. 3iever. If other nations won't consent, then I am in favor of going it alone. Our forefathers didn't ask for an international agreement to establish representative government on tais continent and if we are animated by the spirit of the men who achieved Amer ican liberty, we will not ask t ie consent of anybody to establish whatever monetary system we pleaiie. What we need most is a declaration of a financial Independence. Tt at there is not enough gold in the world to satisfy the demand for primary money is a matter of common knowledge. Somebody must make the start. Why not the United States? We have the greatest possible interest in the matter, and we will not be alone. At the Brussels conference France Bald to the American representatives: 'You were first to demonetize silver in 1873 and we followed your lead. Now, re-monetize it aud we'll follow your lead again.' It's our duty and should be our pleasure. This Is the strongest nation on the globe and should lead the van instead of bringing up the rear in the work of redeeming the people from the slavery which the Rothschilds and Belmoni and thoir lieutenants would fasten upon the masses." As to the Presidency he said: "I am for Silver Dick Bland for President. He is the logical and Inevitable candidate. He would be his own platform. He would need no one to vouch for him. He la a plain man of the plain people and would make a plain, old-fashioned Andrew Jackson chief magistrate. In electing him we'd know jsvhat we're getting. He's henestasthe day is long, brave as Julius Cwsar, ab solutely faithful to his principles, and would restore the Government to the simplicity of Jefferson and the purity of Monroe. He wonld sweep the land . from sea to sea." : " , . , As to a state convention he said: "The people want it and they will have It. The best thing the State Commit tee can do is to call it immediately. What possible harm it could do for the Democrats of Missouri to get together n this crisis of the party's fate and take counsel together is one of those things which pnsseth all human un derxtanding." .

AlfasCa. C sia.a. mam BRYAN ON CARLISLE. How the Nebraskan Fulls the Record on the Kentuckian. Springfield, Mo., May 22. Hon. W. J. Bryan, who lectured in this city last evening, was asked: "What do you think about Carlisle's speech at Covington?" He said: "Mr. Carlisle at Coving ton is as much different from Mr. Carlisle in 1878 as it is possible for him to be. He stated that upon some things advocated in his speech hi 1878 he had changed his mind, but failed to mention the particular part of the speech of 1878 upon which his mind had changed, and we were left In doubt as to what part be repudiates. He said, in 1878, that he favored the Bland bill, because it would put at least 82,000,000 per month into circulation, and the relief would be much greater if the maximum 84,000,000 could be coined, yet he is large'.y re sponsible for the repeal of the Sherman law, which put into circulation about $4,000,000 per month, and he is apparently satisfied with the present condition, under which no silver at all is being put into circulation, either by purchase or otherwise. "In 1878 Mr. Carlisle criticised Secretary Sherman, and said that if the Secretary of the Treasury, or the person who had charge of enforcing the law, was 'in sympathy with the struggling masses, who produce the wealth and pay the taxes of the country, rather than with the idle holders of idle capital,' the benefit received from the law would be much greater, in this he recognized the difference between 'idle holders of idle capital' and 'the struggling masses.' Mr. Carlisle, at that time, spoke for 'the struggling masses,' and accused Mr. Sherman of representing the 'idle holders of idle capital.' "Mr. Sherman and Mr. Carlisle are now in perfect agreement,and it would be interesting to have Mr. Carlisle state whether Mr. Sherman is at last in sympathy with the 'struggling masses,' or whether Mr. Carlisle is in sympathy with 'idle holders of idle capital.' "In 1878 Mr. Carlisle said that the increase in the currency would bring prosperity to all, including the labor ing men. He now says that the laboring people would suffer most from the free coinage of silver. "The laboring men themselves have sent a petition to Congress in behalf of the free coinage of silver at 16 to 1. I am inclined to think that the laboring men know better what they need than Mr. Carlisle." BOIES FOR FREE COINAGE. Iowa's ex-Governor Declares His Po sition on the Financial Question. Alton, Iowa, May 22. In a letter to the Alton Democrat, ex-Governor Boies, of Iowa, comes out for free coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1 without waiting for any international action. Boies said: "It is idle to expect the masses of American people to wait for the cooperation of foreign nations before they settle this question. They have no faith in such a remedy. They have taken the matter into their own hands and they will settle it one way or another so far m this country is con cerned in the next national election that is held. If unrestricted coinage of silver follows and the result is all that gold monometallista predict, the consequences, if evil, should not be charged to the friends of free coinage of both metals. They did not seek the issue. All that they asked was honest bimetallism, with reasonable safeguards for maintaining the parity of the two. This has been denied them upon false grounds, as I believe that no possible legislation could affect that end. I frankly admit that if the ques tion is to be narrowed to the single issue of gold monometallism on one side or unconditional free coinage of both metals at the old ratio on the other, I am In favor of free coinage, because I believe it will at least be the beginning of a broadened financial sys tern that will, if necessary, be so per' fected in the near future as to give un an absolutely safe and sound currency, the foundation of which will be, legal ly at least, and, I believe, practically, the equal use of both gold and silver as a money of redemption. You should not suffer from dyspep sia, indigestion, constipation or bil tonsness. These diseases are all cured by the use of De Witt's Little Early Risers, the famous little pills. Wool-dridge & McArthur. Cost of the Special Session. Jefferson City, Mo., May 23. The House went into committee of the whole this afternoon and reported favorably on the bill appropriating 812,- 000 to pay the salaries of the newCircuit Judges in St. Louis, and 83,300 to pay for printing done during the regular session. The bill was ordered to en groesment. TheUouse then went into committee of the whole for the consideration of the bill to appropriate 810,000 for the per diem of members during the fur ther continuance of the sesnion, the appropriation of 865,000 having run out. Moran wanted it made 820,000 in stead of 810,000. The amendment was passed. The bill also appropriates 810,000 for contingent expenses, which makes the total appropriation 830,000 This increases the cost of this ses sion to 895,000. Davidson of Marion moved to re consider the motion by which the amunumeni, increasing tne appropriation was passed. The amendment was then rejected by a heavy vote, and the bill adopted uu recommenced lor passage. The bill was ordered to engrossment. Cost of Producing Pork. From the Journal of Agriculture . A writer says: One bushel of corn will produce 10, pounds ot pork from which you can easily determine whether it la better to sell corn or pork. Careful experiments have shown the following facts In feeding corn to make pork: Fifty pounds of corn fed whole and raw, makes ten pounds of pork. Fifty pounds of corn, fed ground and raw, makes fifteen pounds of pork. Fifty pounds of corn fed ground and fermented, makes seventeen pounds of pork. Fifty pounds of corn fed cooked and fermented, makes twenty pounds of pork. Lingering coughs and colds in the spring arc serious matters. One Min ate Cough Cure expels the mucous, is toothing, healing, allays fever, acts quickly, is pleasant. Wooldridgo & McArthur. .. Helen Barry, the Actress, Finds a Splendid Tonic in Paine's Celery Compound. The play is done, the curtain drops, Slow falling to the prompter's bell; A moment yet the actress stops and looks aronnd to say farewell . It is an irksome word and task. And when she's lauuhed and said her say. She shows as she removes her manic a face that's anything bnt gay. Acting is not all gaiety, lights, and applause. There is a deal of drudgery, vexation, and heartache tbat the people in the front of the house little imagine. Mary Anderson used to advise young stage-struck girls to keep off the stage. The feverish excitement, the late hours, the drudgery of rehearsals, the unnatural stimulus from new audiences, rivalry and applause, make the life full of perils to health of mind and body. The careless theater-going public have no notion of the strain on the nerves that is inseparable from a dramatic career. But members of "the profession" know what it is, and they have, as a body, learned how best to keep their nervous systems strong and capable of doing the hard work demanded of them. That is why Paine's celery compound is so popular on the stage. Helen Barry, the well known actress, writes to a physician friend, from Tea Box College, Bellfort: "It is with great pleasure I write to tell you that I find Paine's celery compound a splendid tonic. I should like you to procure me a few more bottles." Delia Fox, when "run down" from overwork, by the advice of the wife of JEFF DAVIS' HOME. A Visit to the Aristocratic Old Mansion at Biloxi. From Harper's Magazine. By the wood road the back of Beau-voir is first reached, and is found to be a tract of 10 acres, devoted to the cultivation of the scuppernong grape. The vineyard is a scene of disorder and neglect. The rude arbors are rotting and falling upon the vines, and the young persimmon and pecan trees that have been set out there are endangered by the weeds that grow riotously, to exaggerate the suggestion of desolation. The mansion is around a bend of the road, commanding the dark blue gulf, from behind ample grounds whose fence separates the place but does not hide its beauties from the white beach drive that skirts the water. The gate was tied up, and the house was closed, so that had it been pointed out to me as a haunted hv.' , abandoned by its owners, the scene presented there would have been exactly accounted for. It has been a noble place, and could be made so again with little trouble and expense. No house that I have seen in the South is more eloquent of the full possibilities of the aristocratic baronial life of the planter before the war. To look upon it even now is to recall a thousand tales and anecdotes of the elegant life, the hospitality, and the comfort of the old regime. The main house is a great, square, low building, with a gallery on three sides, reached by a broad, high flight of steps. A great and beautiful door leads to a wide central hallway, through which one could see, when the house was open, either the blue gulf and distant islands in front, or the great oaks with their funeral drapery of Spanish moss in the rear. Two other similar but smaller houses stand, like heralds of the old hospitality, a little forward on either side of the mansion. Both are square, red -roofed, one-story miniatures of the manor-house. Each has its roof reaching out to form a broad porch in front. One is the bachelors' quarters,' for guests and relatives of tbat unhappy persuasion, and the other is Mr. Davis' library and retreat. There everything is as he loved to have it around him when he sat Indoors, and out on the beach is the ruin and wreck of a seat under some live oaks where he used to sit and look upon the broad water and reflect upon his extraordinary and most active life. Behind bese three buildings is the usual array of iHPEPJtElE&ECK, PLUG TOBACCO Consumers of clewing tobacco arewlnjtopaijalitllemoreiki the price dtarged for tie crdinanj trade tobaccos, will find Ab !rand superior fo all otters- BCWARL OF IMITATIONS. W a U. S. senator in Washington, tried Paine's celery compound. She says: "My spirits picked up, and at the end of two weeks the same old exuberant health with which nature blessed me had returned. VI ate and slept as I had not done since I was a child, and I have never known since then an hour's inconvenience from nervous prostration.' "The medicine to which I owe so much ia Paine's celery compound, and I have recommended it to all of my stage acquaintances who have overtaxed their brains by too close attention to study, and all have experienced the same happy results as myself." Marie Tempest also, and a host more of the most eminent artists who appear before the public, have recently testified to the wonderful reinvigorat-ing power of Paine's celery compound. Their testimony is noteworthy because no class of women work harder or are under greater nervous strain. Women in every walk of life have reason to be grateful to Prof. Phelps of Dartmouth, who discovered Paine's celery compound. He understood the peculiar weakness of the sex. He knew that the backache, lassitude, headache, sleeplessness, and loss of appetite all mean that the supply of nervous force is low and inadequate to the demands upon it. The exper ience of thousands has taupbt the women of the country that only Fame's celery compound will give health to the nerves, and, through mem, to tne entire Doay. outbuildings, such as every Southern mansion collected in its shadow the kitchen, the servants' quarters, the dairy and the others. I went into the little library building and saw his books, his pictures, his easy chair and table, and behind the main room his tiny bed room and ante-room, the bedroom being so small that it could accommo date no larger bed than the mere cot which is shoved against the window. His books would indicate that he was a religious man with a subordinate in terest in history. In a closet be kept a remarkable collection of prayer books, and in an open case were many volumes of novels, which the care taker of the place called "trash," and accounted for with the explanation that Mr. Davis maintained a sort of circulating library for the use of his ex-Confederate soldier friends. The pictures that still hang upon the walls struck me as a strange collection. One shows some martyr's, dead in a gladia torial amphitheater; one is of a drowned girl floating beneath a halo in a night-darkened stream;one is a portrait of our Savior beside several Ma donnas, and only one is a military picture. Thither came constant visitors, for it was "the thing to do" in Biloxi far too much so for the privacy and comfort of the family, I suspect; but it is recollected that Mr. Davis de lighted in showing his library to all who called after 12 o'clock noon The main house was seen only by those who had a claim upon his af fections. I visited it and found it made up of noble rooms and decorated beautifully with fresco work. But nearly all the furniture . and ornaments and pictures were packed up or covered as if ready for removal. The effect upon my mind was sad and almost tragic, and I hastened from the widespread scence of havoc ' and of neglect, which even threatens the bouse itself. Too Late.

Mr. Mealey's Patent Dollar. From the Buffalo Oazette. Johnston Mealey, of Howard Lake, has invented a' plan for stamping a gold half dollar into a silver half dollar, making the two worth together one dollar, making in this way a com posite dollar and insuring bimetallism" He has applied for a patent for his discovery.

The Pike county court paid out $1,-085.86 last week in settling bills incurred in managing the smallpox cases in tbat county and left several bills yet outstanding. The town of Bowling Green paid ont about 6600 additional as its share of the expense. It is said that the largest nugget of gold ever found was taken in 1872 from Hill End, in New South Wales. It weighed 640 pounds, and was worth 148,000. OWENS SHOT TO DEATH. He Was Formerly a Resident of Au drain County-The Hangman Cheated. Rock port. Mo., May 24. Karly Thursday morning Judge Randolph Rolf came to town and reported that James Owens, who recently escaped from the St. Joseph jail and who was under sentence to be hanged for murdering his father-iu-law, Seneca Kob-litt of this county, was at the home of Fritz Klute, in the barn, awaiting nightfall. He came there almost barefooted, asked for his breakfast and also asked where his wife was. After breakfast Mr. Klute told him he must leave, but he said he would not dare go in daylight, but would at night. Deputy Sheriff J. W. Young took Wm. Welch, G. H. Fleming, Wm. Clayton and Paul Drake and silently slipped out of the city. They had to drive fifteen miles. When they got there they quietly surrounded the house and barn, but Owens discovered them and shof atone of the party twice before mounting his horse. He then mounted and tried to escape, shooting as he ran. There was a lively battle, and by the time he got out of the barn and 100 varda awav he fell from his horse dead. At 6:30 last evening Sheriff Young came siowiy ariving uuu uiwu wiui the body of his prisoner. Owens was shot through the body twice with Winchester rille balls. None of the officers were injured. It is thought he had returned to kill his wife. There was a reward of 8600 for the capture of Owens, dead or alive. The Owens mentioned in the above news dispatch lived in this county, on the old Jack Rodgers farm, 7 miles northeast of Mexico, up to about two years- ago. Owens has a brother a resident of this county now. He was known as a tough character in the neighborhood where he lived. Persons who sympathize with the afflicted will rejoice with D. E. Carr of 1235 Harrison street, Kansas City. He is an old sufferer from inflammatory rheumatism, but has not heretofore been troubled in this climate. Last winter he went up into Wisconsin and in consequence has had another at tack. "It came upon me again very acute and severe," he said. "My joints swelled and became inflamed ; sore to touch or almost to look at. Upon the urgent request of my mother-in-law I tried Chamberlain's Pain Balm to reduce the swelling and ease the pain, and to my agreeable surprise it did both. I have used three 50-cent bottles and believe it to be the finest thing for rheumatism, pains and swellings extant. For sale by C. A. Buck-ner, Druggist. Callaway County Sentiment. Jefferson City, Mo., May 24. The Anxvasse Review publishes this week interviews with various members of the Callaway County Central Committee regarding a State Convention, W. D. Thomas, editor of the Review, requested from the members of the committee an answer whether they favored a State Convention and what the percentage of 16 to 1 free coinage Democrats was in their township. The chairman of the County Central Committee is in favor of a State Convention and the secretary of the commit tee opposes it. Five members of the committee oppose a State Convention and three favor it. Journalistic Criticism. From the MdirfoBh Republican . Newspaper men always know more than they write; they always shield more than they expose; they are al ways more merciful than cruel, as has been truly said. The man who trusts a newspaper man may rely upon the fact that he will be treated fairly. It is the mean, contemptible, suspicious hypocrite that the newspaper men are always after. No man was ever hurt by a newspaper. And no one is quicker to see the manner of man one is than the newspaper man who studies men and their actions day after day. The Photograph, published at Mos cow Mills, Lincoln County, says: ' movement is on foot at the present time to call a State convention to declare in favor of free silver, in opposition to the Democratic State Central Committee, which refuses to act upon the suggestion of these hasty silver-ites whose main object, it seems, is to defeat the next Democratic nominee for President as well as the next Missouri Democratic nominee for Governor. The party should speak una Bryan on Carlisle. "A fool changes his opinion sometimes; a wise man never." W. J. Bryan. The difference between Carlisle and Bryan is about this: Carlisle was once engaged in"experimental philosophy" where Bryan is now, but at present he is in "practical business" where Bryan aint now.

M'INTYEE ON FINANCE. Hon. D. H. Mclntyre Writes a Letter to Editor Hudson, of Macon. Macon, Mo., May 21. J. A. Hud son, editor or tne macon limes ana chairman of the First District Con gressional Committee, has recently received a number of letters from prominent Democrats in different sec tions of the State approving of his letter to State Committeeman John H. Carroll on the financial issue and against the proposed Missouri convention this year to pass on the silver j question. j D. H. Mclntyre, of Mexico, Attor- j ney General under Governor Critten den, has written as follows: "I was much pleased with your views, w hat we want now is honest, independent newspaper men who will boldly lay bold of the false and deceitful arguments of demagogues and place hunt- j ers and express their illogical and dishonest arguments. "If we had been represented in the last Congress by men actuated by a desire for the general good of the country, and willing to work unselfishly for the success of the Democratic party, as tho best means to that end, they would have stood firmly on the Chicago platform in 1892, and the agitation of this question would have been no more than a mere side-show, and our party would not have been threatened as it is with great agita-. tion, if not an actual split. "The greatest blunder we can make in this State is to allow the fanatics and financial heretics to rush us into the rash suicidal folly of calling a convention. It would be rank nonsense. Hold on your way; you are right. Be like Davy Crockett, go ahead." For whooping cough Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is excellent.

Mementoes of the War. Thirty-three years ago, on May 23, 1862, the battle of Lewisburg, Va., was fought. J. B. Botkin and president A. K. Yancey, of Hardin College, Mexico, and T. J. Roberts, of Rush Hill, were in this battle. Roberts and Botkin were on the Federal and Yancey was on the Confederate side. Mr.Bot-kin was in the 44th Ohio Infantry and Mr. Yancey was in the artillery. Mr. Botkin's company captured a cannon from the artillery, which was taken to Springfield, Ohio. Since the war the wood on which the cannon was mounted has been made into sleeve buttons and gavels, which are kept as keepsakes by those who participated in the fight. Mr. Botkin this morning was exhibiting a couple of gavels and he said he had one of them made for Prof. Yancey, of Hardin College. The probability is tbat Mr. Yancey is not as anxious to have keepsakes of the battle as are those of the other side. A one wheeled sulky with a pneumatic tire is a new invention with which it is claimed a trotting horse can cover a mile in two minutes. and KIDNEY BALM. ?iJirj TVTS'TvK. 11 - " jr.fc.- lis y .r: p; f lit ji tint what IhR nurne Implies, A Sure Tbl !ror SHlt.l le Any K!e, Mrrcu rjt Khcafltallsn nt ll C'hroole Hloofl jUMone.
