The first presentation in this city of the comedy, "Pudd'nhead Wilson,"at Dolan's Saturday night, was an artistic as well as financial success. The engagement was interest- Ing for three reasons. First, because tbe play was founded on the story, "Pudd'nhead Wilson," written] by that celebrated author, Mark Twain: second, because the characterization was by Frank Mayo, a once famous actor, and third, because a son of the latter, Edwin Mayo, ap-j peared in the title role. While watching closely the action of the play the writer was impressed with the similarity of the career of Edwin Mayo and that or the character tie was impersonating. It was also pleasing to note that the the young antor had at last won for himself—and by his owa art, too, a place among the leaders of his profession. Young Mayo was handicapped at the beginning of his professional career, for the reason that, as the son of a great actor, he essayed rolls in which his father became famous, and suffered by the contrast. The criticisms were severe, but he labored on, and by a clever, portrayal of the character of "Pudd'nhead Wilson" succeed in changing the tide of public sentiment. His supporting company is exceptionally strong. ELEYESTH DISTRICT CONVENTION Will Choose Member of the State Central Committee Tomorrow.

Secretary Gage's Plan to K«tir* the Greenback* Sure to Split HI» Party—On the Other Hand, McKiuley Owes * D«l>t to the Moneyed Interest. It is both good advice and bad advice tiiat Senator William E. Chandler has given the administration, says the Detroit News. The efforts of Secretary Gage acd his gold standard backers to retire the greenbacks and "commit the country more thoroughly to the gold standard" can have only one possible result, and that, as Senator Chandler says, will be to split the Republican majority into factions and unify the Democratic opposition. The closest students of legislative conditions concede that there is not the remotest possibility of the enactment of currency laws during this session of congresii. The administration cannot count cm a majority in the senate for any measure that it might stand sponsor for. In the house the sentiment is by no means unified. There is even the reasonable doubt that a scant majority of the Republican representatives are prepared at this time to go so far as Secretary Gage demands, knowing as they do that the party could not have been victorious in 1S96 had it gone into the figbt pledged to commit the country more thoroughly to gold. What won the battle was the appeal to the very large number of Republican bimetallists to stand by the party of "honesl; bimetallism" in opposition to the party of "dishonest bimetallism," of "silver monometallism." Had the sentiment of the country been favorable to the gold standard as represented by Secretary Gage and his friends it may be presumed that Mr. McKiuley •would not have been elected president; that the choice of the electors would have fallen upon Senator Palmer, who stood on an unequivocal platform, pledged, to gold. The Gage schemes for reforming the currency have not met with any large measure of public approval except in the east, and the east is not the nation. On the ether band, for the administration to take Senator Chandler's advice and adopt a let alone policy is liable to result, disastrously as a more aggressive demand for the retirement of the greenbacks. To the moneyed interests of the country the administration owes a debt that it d;ire not repudiate. It has promised to establish the currency OLI a safer basis, and to the bankers a safer basis always contemplates the retirement of the greenbacks. The presidential party cannot afford to goon record as being afraid to make an honest; effort to reform tho currency, and any attempt to do so is certain to result in an overwhelming detail. Had Secretary Gage been suppressed at the very outset "it is possible that the currency question might, have been evaded until tho administration found itself and formulated a compromise plan, but it is now too late to retreat, and it is disastrous to advance. The devil is on one hand and the deep sea on the other. But the administration is free to take its choice. Horn KarniToI Programme.

A RECORD OF DECEIT. Every Step to Establish the Gold Standard Accomplished b.v Fraud. The Republican leaders, alarmed at the candid.declaratiou of Secretary Gage that the first purpose of the .Republican party is to more firmly fix the gold standard upon this country, have been making an effort to cover up that statement. The secretary has been asked leading questions intended to take the pith and marrow out of that important announcement. But they failed most miserably. Of Secretary Gage it may be said, as was said of one of the martyrs, "he mumbled his words, hut refused to recant." The secretary says he is for "bimetallism" if subsidiary silver redeemable in gold is "bimetallism," and he insisted that "a firm establishment of the gold standard" would help this kind of "bimetallism." And so it would, for it is not bimetallism at all or anything like it. But the efforts of the Republican leaders are oharacteriscic and consistent. Not a step has been taken in this country toward establishing the gold standard that is not the result of lying and deceit—not one single step, from the clandestine and corrupt demonetization of silver in 1873 down to the chicanery that made the repeal of the purchasing clause of the Sherman act possible. Mr. Voorhees and other administration senators announced on the floor of the senate that they had been assured b.v those in authority—meaning Cleveland —that the repeal of the Sherman act was only the first step toward the restoration of silver, and that if they had not received those assurances they would not be supporting repeal. Evidently Mr. Voorhees and his associates thought that a solemn pledge meant something. But they -were grossly deceived in the end, and Mr. Toorhees, sensitive and high strung, never recovered from the shock of the discovery that he had been made the tool and in- -*rnment.pf the gold robbery.—Atlanta The Logansport ° Commercial High School.
