No plan is sugKeeted for the prevention of flic importation; of silver for free coinage from Mexico and other countries. A gentleman who"advocates tlie 1G to 1 proposition glibly and recklessly stated recently that a., protective duty or an embargo could be placed on silver coined In- foreign countries as well as upon ninnnCaotuiwd articles produced abroad. Such Idle talk as the above Is uot.effecth-e. Coin cannot be dealt wlfli as a commodity. TJie sooner this idea IB given up the better. Wilth ju> embai'go 011 the silver coin of the world what would ''become; of trade relations and the etabllslied'.sys- tem of exchange with silver basis nations? Would they not turn tneir tnule to those countries where the white coins arc taken? The Adea of an embargo i« only one of many flimsy fallacies wltlii wli'ltli hard-pressed advocates of free and unHmlted coinage are forced' to. ; bolster up their wise. Tlie-plan is as Impracticable and ImposslMe as most suggestions advanced' by the agents of. sllver-miue owners.

CO-EDS JOIN IN A RUSH. Prompted by » Fair Frwhman Occupy,i ' ' lot the '96 Bench. r A -jolly quintet of Chicago university co-eds furnished tie residents of divinity and graduate dormitories with lots of fiin for about ,30 minutes the other morning. The fun was in the nature of a "riisH";. between four seniors and a lone freshman,: and when it waa over the latter bore the appearance of one who had seea.b^tcr days. The "rush" was ^caused by action of the freshman who had snugly ensconsed herself on the bench recently placed in front of Cobb Hall by tbe class of '96. The bench waa glvtn tlfthe senior colleges with the .understanding that none but seniors be piSriikitMSi to rest themselves thereon and that if any fresh- irmn be found there, quick action should be taken in removing him or her; as the case might be^. Little, thought tjie proposers of the Hea!'*aKtti«; first-offender would be *-cc*w8, arid, after the first encounter, they are a trifle fearful of wh»t their harmless intention ma.y develop into. The freshman put up a plucky fight while the "rush" lasted, but ns the odds were four to one against her, she -was forced to succumb to circumstances nnd when lost seen was endeavoring to rid. herseM,of jMge chunks of mud ri-nd mortar.

SJ Gov^t Report Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE ITS ULTIMATE END. Disposition to Bo .Made of the Big St Louis Convention Hall. After November Iftt Its D*yt of Uieral- u«>i Will Be Over and It IVra Be Torn Down—It Now Dismantled. The erstwhile bravely adorned Auditorium that rung with the defiance of the free silver men and the cheers of the McKinleyites and Hannu canip followers is a dismantled and lonely monument to departed enth«siasm. J. Anthony Gorman, of San Francisco, to whom belongs the credit of the simple but beautiful decorations, has completed the work of dehabilitating the big hall. He will ship all the silken paraphernalia to the city by the golden gate and it will be used in a carnival to be held in California's metropolis this fall. He presented souvenirs of the convention in thft form of flags and pictures to John M. Thurston, C. W. Fairbanks and Cbauncey Dcpew, and to Mrs. McKinlcy he sent one of the largest flags. The background or foundation of the decorations will be left for the inspiration of the populist brothers. Tbe draperies ,of the wooden columns and the bands of red, white nnd blue bunting that defined the railings of the galleries, as well as those which softened ihe light that fell .through the "monitor," or big Ekylight, will serve as a, substantial nucleus of such adornment as the populists desire. But the big building, guarded by two policemen, is gloomy now in contrast with its aspect when instinct with life' a few days ngo. The furniture will remain .there until the dose oE the convention, which will be held July 22, after which the building committee will probably sell the 15,000 chairs nnd dispose in a similar fashion of the remaining accessories. The ball itself will stand until November 1. After that it will become the property of the contractor, Kichard P .McClure, who will have it torn down lind sell the salvage as old lumber. Bj the terms of the contract, the building will be for rent for big meetings and rallies until that date. It will be useless during the winter, for it would cost not less than $10,000 to put a heating plant.into the immense-building. The ground it occupies will be converted into a city park next spring. The structure is net only of interest because of the convention just closed, nnd;the one shortly to be held therein, but;because of the fact that 'it was erected in a less time than any other building of ite class in the history of architecture, says the St. Louis Eepub- lie. Work was begun on it April 1 and in six weeks it was ready for occupancy. No one, unless it were the busy contractor, worked overtime. The eight>hour rule was ctric.tly adhered to. Another notable fact v.-ns that there •was not an accident in connection with any portion of the work. Few large buildings there be which have not'becn to some degree altars for the sacrifice of human life. Every precaution was taken, lo prevent injury to the work men. The cont-ractorerijoined extreme care, with tii: happy results referred to. AlthoughMr.McClurewill have 1.500,000 feet of lumber nt his disposal when the big building is torn down, he says his \yill be RDiall'prbflt, If any, as tbe ex- pense.ot undoing the work of April will cost as much us.he ; onn renli-«! from the lumber, which will then, of course, be sccoiidrhand. It took 50,000 pounds of nails to put the'great structure together, and-such as these thnt remnin true,to their original rectilinearnoss will alBO be-available.' The timber i» nil yellow pine, brought from Williamsville, ou the St. Francis river. Until November 1, which will see the initial work in its demolition, thi! building will be in charge of Sam. Kennard, William II. Thompson and Bichard C. Kerens. lubtkBs it will be o popular place for rallies In the early'fall., . " MONSTER 'AjST'S FATAL STING.

Harrlion MlM •*• rlooi Injury. Ex-President and .Mrs. Harrison were in extreme danger of being crushed between an electric car and a trolley pole on East Washington street, Indianapolis, Ind., the other afternoon. They were in their carriage, drawn by two spirited horses and driven by the colored coachman. When the driver essayed to cross the street he evidently did not observe an electric car that stood on the north track a few feet from an electric pole. As the driver turned upon the track the horses became excited and at the same moment the gong of another car sounded a few yards distant going easton the opposite tratk. The. driver evidently realized his perilous position and suddenly turned tbe horses so that they would pass be- tweeu the pole and the car, though the spac'j was so narrow that it seemed impossible to make the passage without striking one or the other. The horses plunged forward and by a lucky chance ran the narrow gantlet without striking either the pole or the car. Mr. Harrison evidently recognized the danger at the same-moment that it became apparent to the driver, as he grasped the back of the seat in front of him and rose partly from a sitting posture. He did not evince any desire to 'lump from tbe vehicle, but was apparently prepared to take the lines if. the emergency required, and while the horses were making the run of the gant- • let he leaned'forwa/H as if ready atany moment to render assistance in their. management. As far as could be Been Mrs. Harrison either did not recognize the danger she was in or was not the least disturbed by it. • TWO SEA SERPENTS CAPTURED.

Some months ago a request for the loan of the revolutionary muster roll* .of New York state to the war department of the national government warn made through. Gov.
