"The Republican party Is unreservedly for sound money. It caused the enactment of the law providing for the resumption of specie payments In 1879; since then every dollar has been as good •a gold. "We are unalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase our currency or .impair the credit of our country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except by International agreement with the leading commercial nations of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, and until then such gold standard must be preserved.' "All our silver and paper currency must be maintained at parity with gold, and we favor all measures de- •Igned to maintain Inviolably the obligations of the United States and all our money, whether coin or paper, at the present standard, the standard of the most enlightened nations o£ the earth." —Republican platform. "We demand the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 1C to 1, without waiting i'or the aid or consent of any other nation.

While it is known thnt Japan purposes at once contracting for a number of high-class battle ships, it is also well known that these vessels will be constructed on the Clyde and not, in the United States. Since the beginning of the late war between Japa.n and China. British ship builders have anticipated these additions to Japan's navy and have made their plans accordingly. Moreover, a number of the younger of- ficersin the Japanese navy have received their technical training in Great Britain, and these men art strong partisans of the country where their education was acquired. Their.influence has been exerted in favor of British ship builders from the start, and their influence is said to be very powerful. While the two Treat ship building firms of this ooun- try—the' Cramps, of Philadelphia, and the Union iron works, of San Francisco —have been represented in Japan for only weeks at a time by a single agent cash, their British rivals have sent scores of representatives toTokiowell supplied with money and instructions to entertain lavishly. These men have been kept continually upon the ground, and their efforts have been supplemented by the younger class of Japanese officers who were graduated from English training schools, mid who have aided their British friends through the social nnd official influence which many of them are able to exert. Advices received from Tokio at the nnvy department state that only two cruisers will be built in this country, one by the Cramps nnd the other by the Union iron works. These, it is believed, will be vessels of the Olympia class, which the Japanese government seems to favor. SEWALL'S SHIPPING BUSINESS. Great IndMtry Built Up by tlio Vlce- Fratldentlal Candidate. Sewall & Co., the Maine ship-building firm of which the democratic nominee for vice president is the senior member, is interested solely in the building and operation of sailing vessels.

Eight of the vessels have just arrived with cargoes of sugar from Honolulu and two more dxe on the way. These 13 vessels carry !n the course of a year millions o! dollars' worth of freight.

L»mb II SMTlfleed »od Then Eaten t» • Paliover Vrnlt. A realistic observance of the feast ol the passover was held at a colored carnp- meeting near l)unbar, Pa., the other day Persons present represented Moses and Aaron, and the priesthood were dressed in 'their royal apparel. Rev. K. E. Brown opened the services by reading several chapters, of the Epistle of John. A lamb, which had been tied to a tree,, was led to the altar and slain by Eev. Mr. Brown. A white pigeon woe dipped in the lamb's blood and then set free. The lamb was roasted and the eating of the passover occurred. After this {he lamb's bones were burned. In the center of the grove a large wheel waa erected. It was turned by 16 burly negroes representing Christian faith in olden times. Alter this the washing of feet occurred. • Born •*'•!> Unhappy Moment.

In treating this svibjact it should b* clearly understood that it is not my intention to speak ol the man who lie. to benefit himself, nr the one who lies maliciously. The other grand division of this great genus., whose talent is along the line of poetic and picturesque, is by far the most interesting. A aar, savs the Louisiana Commercial, can never lie so well unless he thinks you believe him. Whenever he becomes convinced that you are swallowing everr word he says, he throws Ins whole soul into it, and lies with aTi his might. Sew scenes and conditions, rise rapidly in his fertile brain, one aft*r another, and his active tongue sets them fortb 'in glowing words.' ' Kow, there is nothing more entertaining than n good, well-told lie-one that does not draw too largely on the supernatural. In nine cases out ol ten there is as much entertainment in listening to a good lie ns we are led toxm- der*ta.nd there is in telling one. So a eood liar at his best is really a. sort ol a mutual benefit arrangement, furnishing entertainment for both himself and his fellow men. He olso runs the ris« of getting caught, which to most ol the fabricators ol the first class U disagreeable. The best liars never build on airy nothingness. Far better results ore obtained by taking a subject and enlargingon it. In this way the im- airinatioii can act with more freedom than wl.«n it has t/> hold the original lie in sight ell the.time.

There have lately been made two-story portable bouses. A two- story portable house of 10 rooms costs $1,K>0. A house of one room, 8x11, wilD one door and one window, can be bought for $50; with two cots, two tables and two stools, for $60.
