The citizen* ot Lafayette have arranged t) give tbe mayor public reception. and his party a flT seems to me," said John Sherman in a speech delivered in congress some years ago, "that to adopt tbe gold standard alone and demonetize silver would be to deprive tbe poor people of the world of the money which alone measures the value of their production and of their labor." CHICAGO was threatened for a while yesterday with a repetition of the great tire of 1871. A fire started in the stock yards district,and before It could be checked property cover- Ing several acres of ground was destroyed. The heroic eflorts of the •firemen saved the city from disaster. Woman's Nerves. Mrs. Platt Talks About Hysteria. 'When a nerve or a set of nerves supplying 1 any organ in the body with its due nutri- rc.eiit grows weak, that Organ languishes. When the nerves become exhausted and die, so to speak, the org-an falls into decay. What is to be done?. The answer is, do not allow the weakness to progress; the deteriorating process at once ! Do you experience fits of depression, alternating with restlessness? Are your' spirits easily affected, so that one moment you laugh and the next fall into convulsive weeping? 1 Ag-ain, do you feel some thing like a ball rising i:i your throat and threatening- to choke you, all the senses perverted, morbidly sensitive to light and sound, pain in ovary, and pain especially between the shoulders, sometimes loss c f voice and nervous dyspepsia ? If so, you are hysterical, your uterine nerves are at fault. You must do something to restore their tone. Nothing is better for the purpose than Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound- it will work a cure. If you do not understand your symptoms, write to Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn. Mans., and she will give you honest, expert advice, free of charge. MBS. LE\T F. PI.ATT, \Vomleysburg-, Pa., had a terrible experience with the illness we have just described. Here is her own description of her sufferings: ' • I thought I could not be so benefited by anything and keep it to myself. I had hysteria (caused by womb trouble) in its worst form. I was awfully nervous, low-spirited and melancholy, and everything imaginable. " The moment I was alone I would cry from hour to hour; I did not care whether I lived or died. I told my husband I believed Lydia E. Pin.kham's Vegetable Compound would do me good. I took it and am now well and strong, and getting stouter. I have more •olor in my face than I have had for a year and a half. Please accept my bhanks. I hope all who read this and who suffer from nervousness of this tind will do as I have done and be cured." ME. CHAPMAN, the Democratic •andidate for governor of Ohio, states his views on the money queatloo plainly and without equivocation. "Money," he says, "whether metallic or paper, Is the creature of law and Us measuring power of every other species of property Is determined by tbe amount in circulation and the demand for it. On this question my position Is well known. I am in favor of the restoration of silver at tbe ratio of 18 to l without waiting 1 for tbe permission or consent of any other country, believing that we are able to maintain our own financial policy, and I am in favor of only three kinds of money—gold, silver aad legal tender, treasury notes good for all debts, public and private." MUNICIPAL ownership of street railways, of water, light and fuel franchises, has become an Important question and is commanding more than ordinary consideration in all the larger cities ot the country. Up to the present time these franchises have been granted private corporations and but little consideration has been given to the value of the concessions granted. Now tbe question arises: If these franchises are a good thing for private corporations why would it not be better for municipalities to own and control them and use the profits accruing therefrom to reduce taxation? In cities like Chicago or New York the profits derived from such sources would pay the expense of maintaining municipal government after deducting the cost ot operating anJ the Interest on the Investment. The granting ot these valuable franchises to private corporations has become a source of corruption in our larger cities and "boodllng" has become a familiar word throughout the land. ng both the other classes In the atlo ot 100 to 1, and in their hands rests the destiny of this re- iublic. They are the people, and unless they are false to themselves, no power on earth can retard their irogress nor deprive ttiem of their Ights. They comprise all who de- 'ote themselves to honest labor, whether of hand or of brain. They may be poor, they may be in moderate circumstances, or they may have ecured a competency. Relative con- Itioos may change in a day, but 'a man's a man for a 1 that.' Let the >eop!e respect themselves, guard ealously their own rights, aj)d be willing to accord to others the same irlvileges they ask for themselves." The Marks of Degeneracy. That very conservative newspaper the Boston Traveller, notes the fact that the tendency of the times Is un fortunately in the direction ot clas distinctions. "There is danger," it ?ays, "that the great principle of the equality of men as men shall pass into inocuous desuetude. Woe betide the day when the royal birthright of any citizen of this republic sball be for gotten. Tbe history of nations shows that degeneracy follows hard upon the heels of the separation of the people into the very wealthy and the very poor classes. In the large cities of this country there are already the 'four hun dred' into whose select circles others may not enter, and the selection Is made upon the basis of wealth or, what is worse, the degree of et femlnacj, to "which the poor dude has degenerated in his extreme de votlon to the out ot his trousers or hla ballroom manners.

Dr. Thome'.- r^ei^ro State. Dr. .1. Albert Thome is a highly educated West Indian negro, a British snbjec-.. and a graduate of the Edinburgh medical school. He proposes to found a civilized black state in central Africa on the highlands north of the _ Zambezi river, in the region called the British East African protectorate. { ^ 1JluvJB1UJia ,„ Dr. Thome is in despair of the ne- i diffitmlt route . iro's ever attaining any desirable position, social or financial, in the white man's country, either of the West Indies or of the United States. He says his raco is crowded out of every occupation except the most menial and laborious, and even there ignorant and degraded foreigners are now stepping in and rooting the blacks out. The foreigner will live on a few cents a day. This being tho state of affairs, Er. Thome -proposes to lead his race gradually back to where it came from, the high coiuitry of interior Africa. The western coast, where Liberia is, American negroes cannot live in any more than the white man. Our slaves came not from the west coast, bnt from the interior of the dark continent. Captain Peter H. Peterson, an esperi enced miner, says the best time to cross Chilkoot pass is in November. Then tb ice is bard enough to travel on and thi light snow can be easily traversed with sno-wshoes. Captain Peterson will nmki a journey over Chilkoot pass in a nove way tbe present winter. He will fasten stakes securely in the snow. Over thi top of these he will pass by means o: pulleys a line leading over the steep part of the mountain and down the oth er sida The novel device will be operated-a follows: A number of men will drag i sled load of provisions to the top of thi pass by main forca There they will at tach the sled to the trolley overhead an start it sliding down hill outhe farthe tide of the Chilkoot pass. The sled tha goes down hill on the farther side wil by its weight and momentum drag u another one at the entrance to the pass The process will continue till all Cap tain Peterson's party and a large outfi provisions are thus conveyed over the The chain of lakes at of the Yukon will be traversed by sleds with sails .attached. Perhaps this kind of coasting will become a favorite winter amusement with the Alaska Four Hundred of the fntura A PALPABLE TRICK. Bank of England's Offer to Hold a Resefve of Silvia 1 . TO INFLUENCE AMEBIOAJi VOTEES. Scheme of th« Goldit«» to Bnnko th« Silver Men >ot Ohio »nd low*--A Concision to Silver With » String to It—Only Good Till Xovemb*r. The London newspapers are confirming the view taken by this paper that the British ministry has been working tbe Bank of England, or, as the cockneys call it, the "old lady of Threadneedle street," into playing a little politics for the benefit of the gold standard party in the United States, says the Cincinnati. Enquirer. The Westminster Gazette honestly admits th;it the snide offer of the bank to use silver for 20 per cent of its reserve on the condition that the price of silver shall always be "satisfactory" is a mere flirtation with the birnetallists. It says that "the offer is meaningless so far as practice is concerned." The St. James Gazette designates the offer as a "little diplomacy" and "a risky politeness." The Globe virtually charges the chancellor of the exchequer with having forced the bank j into making this bogus offer under pressure of foreign influence upon himself. It deprecates "foreign influence through the government" upon the British monetary system and says, "If, as should have been done, the proposals of the United States and France had been handed to the directors of tbe bank without official recommendation or pressure, it can scarcely he doubted that the directors would have firmly declined to further the project." The proposals were handed to the directors by Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, and not by the representatives of the United States and France. The governor of the bank avers that he has had no negotiations with our commissioners. Grover Cleveland or John Sherman would as soon promote bimetallism as would the chancellor of the British exchequer, and yet he causes the Bank of England to make a false pretense of a trifling concession to silver, with a reservation which makes it no offer at all. Tho for- eigii influence of which The Globe complains was the McKinley administration, speaking through Senator Wolcott. It is easy to imagine him saying to Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, "You can help us to carry Ohio and Iowa if you will just permit the Bank of England to make believe a little. " The next step was a conversation between Sir Michael and the governor of the bank, in which the former said in effect: "You can let the Uniled States silver commissioners squeeze your hand and even give you a gentle hag. You can offer to do something on the condition that you can take it back whenever the price of silver does not suit you, and of course you can declare any day that the price is not satisfactory to you. We only want the trick to last until after the United States elections early in November. It will help make a large number of silver advocates in the United States help our man Hanna into the senate. " The trick is gross and palpable. Small rogues who practice such frauds upoa the people, at country f airs are sent to the workhouse by petty magistrates. The transparency of it makes it an insult to every voter it is intended to affect.

A Fine Piece of Work. Mr. Dingley has answered Bryan. He admits that dollar wheat will not last longer than the present season. He confesses that his bill, which was to abolish deficits in revenue, will cause a deficit of at least §50,000,000 in its first five months. And,, finally, Mr. Dingley insists that his tariif measure is a fine piece of legislation. The answer will do. It should be printed by the Democratic and Populist committees as a campaign document. The resignation of the Spanish cabinet is the movement of rats deserting a sinking ship. They know, what every- _^_ ^.^ „„_. body else knew long ago, that Spain j conditions Great Britain will aid in the Dr. Thome says of his negro state aad its hopeful prospects: It contains millions of acres, which the governor hns promised me will be partitioned among us. Every settler of good character who will cultivate 30 acres during two years will be given a freehold of that amount of land. The country is a beautiful high plateau just south of the equator. Every tropical fruit and every temperate cereal will grow there. For our purposes the best feature of the country is its climate. White people are liable to intermittent fever, but colored immigrants are totally unaffected. It would be utterly impossible for a white race to live in the country, whoso climate resembles that- of 111- dia. where white people may reside, but ar£ unable to bring up children. It will be a blncl; man's country. Xo other race will l>a able to titep in and reap the fruits of our labor, as has be*in done so many times before. Fall Tree Planting. The cool, even temperature of the autumn makes it the best season to plant many kinds of trees and shrubs;. This may be done any time before the frost locks up the earth. Forest trees do better when planted in the fall than in the spring. Upon an acre of poor land a gro^e of fine young maples might be set that would in time repay a hundredfold their cost A few fruit trees conld be set out each fall, according as there was time, and ail these togethia 1 properly tended would in a very few years develop into a grand, orchard. Birthday anniversaries are beautifully marked by the planting of a fine tree. More birthdays seem, somehow to come in the autumn than at any other time of the year, so there is opportunity to commemorate many of these happy occasions by a monument that will last for centuries. In choosing trees to plant, those •which thrive in the neighborhood, should be selected- Japan evergreens are beautiful features of a landscape, winner and •ummer, and grow almost anywhere. Thrifty,' slim, young growths of all kinds should be selected. They will develop faster than larger trees and be can never reconquer Cuba. They were at 1*1 e end of their rope. The policy of cruelty, of force, deceit and repression of which Weyler in Cuba is Spain's most illustrious exponent has proved a dismal failure, as such a policy always proves. Spain must let Cuba go. Rather than face this themselves the Conservative cabinet resigned so as to let the odium of the loss in the minds of the Spanish people rest on the Liberal party. With Cuba gone, with the rebellion in the Philippine islands stronger than ever, with Spain bankrupt and disgraced in the eyes of gods and men, this {Jas- tardly resignation was a fit climax to the policy of the Spanish Conservative party for the past ten years. We regret to learn from the report of Miss Eleanor Ormerod, a British entomologist, that Syleborus dispar has reappeared in a section of England, that great numbers of Harpalns rnbicornis have invaded the country, and that the larvffii of the Leutorhynchus assimilis are also getting in their work. Now we know what is the matter with the Eng lish. "Hudson strait is destined to become in the future part of a great grain carry:ing ronte between Liverpool and Winnipeg, which will be a powerful rival o/ the American land routes." Yes. But it will be in about 20,000,000,000 years, when the earth's axis has changed so the equator will pass through the north pole. restoration of silver coinage, be need only to read the ravings of the London press.
