Thk citizens hope to see the reunion succeed in spite of the mayor. Special from Hennessey: "Dick Yeager, alias Zip Wyatt, caught." Special from all the world: "You've got to show me." No one cares particularly that John "Wanamaker's son make an ass of himself by giving a $20,000 dinner to a few cronies, but they wish, in these hard times, lie would display his assi-nlnity in this country. BlSMABCK'8 extreme aversion to women who meddle in politics can be traced to the circumstance that he was married to a wife who was an Ideal housekeeper and who thought more of her home and the comfort of her husband than ahything else. That sort of training spoils a man's taste for "new" women. Two little boys in Wichita raised a hullabalooo there the other day. The night before they meet on the bridge and had a little set-to.- One's nose wasbloodiud. It ran on the bridge. The boys to raise an excitement got a rock, dipped in the blood, put a few horse hairs on it: the bleeding nose was held over the railing, and there you had it: a woman murdered and thrown into the river. Awful mysteryuntil the boys confessed. Many arguments in favor of a gold standard are based on mere assumption. History and the facts are all against them. The gold bugs seem to act onth t heory that a falsehood well adhered to is as good as the truth. Mr. Hoke Smith lias been repeating to the people of Geogia wherever he has spoken the assertion that, in the event of opening mints to silver all the gold will leave the country. In as much as the government has had suchdifli-culty in getting gold out of American holders that it has been forced to go to Europe to supply its needs, it is difficult to see how Europe is going to get Wall street to yield up its hord-Ings of the yellow metal. A VICTORY FOR SILVER. The silver men in Ohio are quite elated over the decision of the supreme court of that state denying the right of the city of Cincinnati to issue bonds that bear on their face the announcement that they are to be paid in gold. It was proposed to refund $3,000,000 of 4 per cent bonds at a lower rate of interest. A syndicate had offered to take the issue at 815 on condition that the principle ai d interest be made payable in gold. An injunction was secured and the question finally reached the supreme court. The chief justice hay auuouin:oJ that the decision of the court when formally recorded, would be to sustain the injunction and prohibit the issue of gold bonds. In many respects it is a notable decision. It has been the practice in many states to isus bonds stipulating that they shall be paid in gold. According to the supreme court of Ohio aUch discrimination, in the case of a municipal corporation at least, is unlawful. The silver men feel elated over the fact that their favorite metal cannot be put under the ban in this WHY AND WHEN IT WAS. a It was the world's monetary power, Great Britain, which first reduced her own masses to the level of industrial slaves by demonetising the poor man's money and Axing gold as the one stan dard of values, whereupon by an en forced purchase and a system of discounts, got control of the world's gold. II was the hereditary nobility of wealt h wlio forced the policy. There v, as Km imicli comfort among the poor, toil many tradesmen and mechanical m iDUfftCtures threatening to rival these aristoeratiely born blue-bloods, following England, and principally through t he manipulat ions of her aristocratic capitalists other nations followed in succession, but it was many years before the rule could be enforced upon other peoples. Other countries stood out for a longtime, but beginning witli Germany ten nations within a period of six or seven years demonetized silver. Then followed I he tabor organizations, the walkouts, the lockups and the era of great and disastrous strikes which have mai;ked the past two decades. It was a lack of money caused by the demonetization of silver which in shrinking values depressed the prices of labor. And what is wanted now is more money, not more promises to pay, but more fundamental money, it's the lack of food that causes men to go hungry. the lack of clot hing that causes them to go nu ked, the lack of money that renders I them poor. And so the laboring man the world over, has become distrustful of the ruling classes Who ever seem loaning their influence to the power and sway of money, its corporations and its institutions. The great body of the men of America is not an exception. President Cleveland and his secretary of the treasury are distrusted by the mass of the people because of their gold bond transactions. This distrust is so pronounced that candidates for the presidency in all the parties, while afraid of the power of money upon the one hand and the men who shall stand at the polls demanding the remonetiza-tion of silver upon the other, conceal their convictions. The great body of tiie people are as much Intensified over the wrong of demonetization and the subsequent action of party leaders and tin1 president, as they were over the attitude of Pierce and Buchanan On the question of slavery as it re-luted to Kansas. So pronounced is this feeling that the single standard papers have ceased to denounce the sliver men as cranks and flat fools and to resort to arguments more or less plausible. Within three months these same papers and politicians instead of threatening and denouncing the l,sil v t lunatics" will be quoting the na tional platforms of '1)2, which unequiv ocally demanded the use of gold and silver both as standard money with a parity of values, by which platforms the people were fooled, and in the end disappointed by broken promises. The list of countries which hav( been forced by the gold power of Great Britain one by one into the adoption of the policy that enriches the rich and pauperizes the poor is a formidable one. America being the richest in resources, is most powerful next to Great Britain with her surplus billions, and the hope of the world is in America, where the power of the government inheres in the people, if in deed they have not been robbed of that which in declaring it to be their inalienable right they, founded their government. The following are the countries which closed their mints to silver and the date of each action: Year. Countries. 1816 Great Britain 1871 Germany 1872 .

For instance, there is the man who always has to run to catch a train. The reporter sees them every day or so. There are three or four men in Arkansas City who travel a great deal, and they have to make a run for the train every time. There appears to be no need for it, since those same men stand around on l tie street and laugh and talk and swap jokes with friends until the very last moment, when they only have I wo minutes to walk four blocks. They are not doing a thing all the time before, could have been there half ail hour sooner just as well as not. Lut it seems to be a mania witli them to just about miss the train. Watch 1 lie trains a few days and you will be able to locate those men so that when you hear the rapid pit-a-pat of footstt pa on the stone walk just after the conductor has yelled "All aboard," you can almost tell the name of the pa. t v without looking around at all. Use White Elephant Flour and be convinced that it is the best. Normal Notes. Miss Sarah Hays of this city is visiting the normal today. Minnie Jones enrolled this morning from Udall.

W. II. England. The lecture last evening was excellent. It was very instructive and spiced witli wit and humor, such only as is peculiar to the "Raging John" McDonald. His description of the railroads of England and Scotland showed how very far the United States system is above it. The manners and customs of the people was also very interesting.
