BLANCO seems to be no more successful than Gen Weyler in oup- preesing the Cuban insurrection. He has already called for more men and more money. SENATOR CHANDLER dees not propose to be captured by the gold conspirators without a fight. Senator Allison, of Iowa, has also gently intimated that a surrender to the gold- Ites woulcfnot be satisfactory at this time. SENATOR CHANDLER warns McKinley that he must either stand by the people or join tbe plutocrats. If lie antagonizes Banker Gage's financial scheme he will stand with the people. If he endorses the scheme he will, Jujthe opinion of Senator Chandler, stand with the plutocrats. Would it not be strange if before the close of this century scientists should succeed in obtaining a view of the molecules of which matter is composed? The most powerful microscope at present in use magnifies 10,000 diameters. Professor Elmer Gates of Washington enlarges this image by looking through the lens of a second microscope at the image produced by the first one. The image thus viewed is, however, faint. By using a delicately adjusted camera the enlarged image of the object may be photographed and a clear view obtained. The enlargement by aid of the camera has proceeded till au image 100,000,000 times the size of the object has been obtained by Professor Gates. A BILL Is DOW pending before congress to legalize railroad pooling. If it should become a law a great railway trust would be formed und competition in rates would be a thing of the past. It would mean that the law making power of the country directly sanctions the formation of trusts. It would in a measure destroy the business of the Inland cities of the country. But the railway managers were a potent force In the election of the present congress. The women of the country are doing their utmost to wipe birds off the face of the earth, while ornithologists, philanthropists and scientific agriculturists are trying vainly to preserve them. Under such conditions literature giving information concerning birds should be •welcomed and disseminated broadcast. Ono of the valuable books on this subject is "Birdcrafc." It is especially adapted for school children and has illustrations of song and other birds. We observe ac the beginning the famous lines from. Longfellow, "And the birds sang round him, o'er him, 'Do not shoot us, Hiawatha.' " IT is expected that Senator Wolcott, of Colorado, will, within a few weeks, speak out as plainly as Senator Chandler has spoken against Banker Gage's currency reform scheme. He was bitterly mortified when Secretary Gage appeared before tbe banking and currency committee and bluntly announced that the object of bis bill was to commit this country more firmly to the single gold standard. This Senator Wolcott has construed into a direct personal affront. He takes the position that Secretary Gage's 'declaration of principles is wholly inconsistent with the paragraph in the president's message, and unless disavowed would make Wolcoti the laughing-stock of all Europe. The senator has talked seriously with some of his friends about the situation, and says if the president does not distinctly repudiate the position of his secretary of the treasury the gravest results may ensue. THE Chicago Chronicle, which sup ported McKinleyand "sound money,' whatever that means, says that "the Republican party is as certainly doomed to defeat as that McKlnley Is in the white house but for a single term. The nation is sick and tired of the confidence game played upon It In 1896. The Kepublican party has got itself into a situation where it makes no'difterence what it does or what It does not do. It Is doomed to defeat. If It retire the greenbacks at the behest of Mr. Gage it Is lost. If it follow the wily counsel of the gentleman in the white bouse and do nothing it is lost. It went cheerfully and swiftly to the task, readily consummated, of piling taxes upon the people, but the real work for which it was given toe authority in 1896 it cannot and will not do. "As to Gage, he is already discredited, and not having the earnest •upport of the president ana hardly more than respectful bearing before a committee of the house, inclined privately to inquire as Chandler does publicly: 'How much does Secretary Gage care lor thu Republican party?" 1 The old superstition is that if yon work hard the 1st day of January you will work hard all the year. The effect of this belief has been curiously reversed on the negroes of the south since the slave times. When they were .slaves, each one refrained to the utmost in his power from doing a lick of work on New Year's day. Now the negro labors for wages, and it is the wish of his soul to have work all the year. Accordingly, with the old superstition still strong within him, he bends his effort toward getting paying labor for the 1st of January and to keep at it busily all day. The present population of Oklahoma shows that territorial rushes such a thosfi by which newly opened lands ar settled in a day's time areatspecialty o tbe native born American^" Oklahoma the boomer territory, has a smaller for eigu born population in proportion ti the :aumber of inhabitants than au> state in the Union. Another significau fact in regard to Oklahoma is tha whild its whole population is 300,000. 90,000, almost a third, are children in school. A very large proportion of the boomers are thus seen to have been men and women with their families. X>s'e 01' flxlng: the mining rate for 1898. Both conventions were largely attended, and the important questions which ^are to come up today were thoroughly 'discussed. Judging- from the results of yesterday's work it would appear that today's convention will not Hx the rate and another general strike Is; one of the possibilities. The miners' convention was asked by the uniformity committee to allow a differential of 10 cetns in favor of the operators who sign uniformity agreements. The miners By a meager majority decided to alloiv the differential, but when the matter was broughi: before the operators' convention it was ignored. Thus it looks as though uniformity in the Pictsburg district is remote. On the rate question the miners passed a resolution which means a complicated neht. In spite of the fact that the courts have ruled that t]je newmiii- ing law is unconstitutional "the resolution demands a rate of 49 cents a ton •for coal as it comes from the mine without being screened. The operators decided to ignore the aew mining law entirely. Both conventions favored an attempt to bring about an interstate convention of operators and miners to be held at Columbus, O., some time next month, for the purpose of fixing the mining rate for the several states. With the complications above mentioned the prospects for derisive action at today's meeting are anything but bright. Labor Situation at New York. New York, Dec. 21,—According to The World, of 297,850 workers in this city the records show that fl2,075 are out of work. Last year at this time 125,375 were idle. The increase of employment has come for the most part to skilled labor. The only striking increase in unskilled labor has been in the ranks of laborers on streets and for contractors. .

Who Ars tbe Calamity Howler* Now. The lack of prosperity ia this country Is not due to natural conditions. It Is due to artificial causes. This country should now be enjoying unexampled prosperity. Crops of all kinds were good. Tbe foreign demand for American products has never been greater. When these things are considered one wculd be led to the conclusion that this country should ba enjoying unparalleled prosperity. But It Is not. Why not? Id It because the gold conspirators propose to have their way at the expense ot the business prosperity of the country? Are they trying to drive this country into issuing geld bonds and retiring ihe greenbacks under tbe same plan that they carried the election last year— by coercion and Intimidation. The ttooey of the country is absolutely good. No one doubt* this proposition except those who are in the conspiracy to drive this country into adopting the single gold standard. It The first duty of congress is to arran to send food supplies to the hungry miners iu tbo Klondike. A bill for this purpose cau he passed through both houses in half au hour, signed 'naif aii hour later by the president and go into effect at once. Mail carriers can traverse the routs to Dawsoii City in winter; therefore dog sleds, reindeer sleighs and food cau go too. "Keep sober and work hard and you make money in the Klondike," are the words of a miner who has returned with a sackful of gold from that region. But you can make money if you will do the same thing anywhere. ABBREVIATED TELEGRAMS. A general strike is brewing; among- the bicycle workers at Chicago. Pugilist.
