It was expected after Congressman Steele expressed his intention to recommend the appointment of A. B. Shroyer, tnat the matter was settled, but It appears that many protests have been filed, and that Major Steele is undecided. Mr. Shroyer's continued illnass has given his competitors for the place an excuse for pressing their •Isims, and it will not be surprising If they succeed in defeating the appointment of Mr. Shroyer. It is now hinted that Dr. Powell stands the best show of securing the appointment in case Congressman Steele de- tides to drop Shroyer^ ^ £U UC UU V» V Hi^* "•"•• — — friends of silver as is my friend from Colorado, the author of this resolution,'for they would naturally see to it that they wouldn't lose anything on tbelr holdings of government obligations The "Domestic" Office. THE beet sugar industry la to be- •ome an extensive one In tbis country . The climate aod soil of a large area of territory is adapted to tbe •ultivation of tbe sugar beet, and the •onsumption of sugar in this country amounts to seventy pounds for each inhabitant. But it is well to remember that the cultivation of beets on an extensive scale must begin before iui?ar beet factories are necessary. It is now demonstrated that the soil and climate of northern Indiana are adapted to the cultivation of the tugar beet. The establishment of this Industry will greatly benefit the larmers, because for a time at least th.e cultivation will be very profitable acid it will lessen the area of tillable laud devoted to other crops. The viilue of sugar consumed in this couo- try equals about halt the value of flour consumed. AN experiment at purging the pension rolls of fraudulent and unworthy claimants was made a fortnight ago by the New York "Sun," which printed tbe names and aa- iresses af pensioners drawing not loss than fifty dollars per month. The list was not a week oid when word came that many pensioners at the national capital were also holding lucrative offices under the government, that about fifty members of St. Louis' police service—a service irhich presupposes perfect physical condition—are pensioners, that one •eventy-two-dollar pensioner in a ]$ew York town had been dead two years, that a hundfed-dollars-per- month pensioner credited to a Kentucky town could not be found, and that a man receiving seventy-two dollars per month for total blindness lost bis eyes ten years after the war. We observe that some palace coaches lately turned out by a car building company are more magnificent than any that have gone before. The queen of England herself is not housed in quarters more costly and luxurious than these in which tbe plainest American citizen, if he has money enough, may bo transported from one side of this continent to the other. A bewildering array of white and gold color, of the finest, richest silken plush, of mirrors that flash like diamonds, of rosewood, of English oak, of Circassian walnut and St Jago mahogany greet the gaze of the traveler entering one of these gorgeous coaches. 'Tis well. Nothing is too fine for tbe common American citizen, if he has money to pay for it. An( j yet—we are pained to say it— the American citizen would give up at least half this gorgeousness and costliness if he could be assured of just cne comfortable day and night during a long jonrney. The magnificent coaches are horribly ill ventilated, the alleged Bleeping berths are as bad and cramped as they can be, and tbe poor passenger is nearly strangled with smoke. He is peppered with dnst and soot. Give us comfortable sleeping compartments, real little rooms, with the plainest bedding, so that it is clean and we can get some air. Abolish the frightful dust smoke and jolting on your cars. Yon can do it. Put half the cost into one plain sleeping car and make two in its place, so that we shall have elbow room and breathing room. These be I matters more vital to our comfort than carven ivory and Tabasco mahogany. COVERT TAILOR SUITS. of them had a black silk skirt with large velvet figures upon it and a noisy purple velvet Cossack Russian blouse reachiug to the kuees. This was trimmed with pointed bearer in a shawl collar and cufis: The next one wore a pown oi ruby velvet hanging in heavy folds from a raised draping at the left side, which revealed a ruffled underskirt of taffeta gilk mottled in red, yellow, blue and green. There was a short Russian blouse of green velvet with gray fur collar, re- vers and muff. The next one had a skirt of iistonishingly brilliant plaid, where scarlet, : blue, garnet, green and yellow besides black stripes fought for ascend- eacy. The prevailing color was red. The waist was a cobalt blue velvet blouse, with green velvet epaulets, stock and revers collar. This opened to show a vest of tbe same plaid gathered very full and, like the skirt, on the bias. The sight of so much splendor made the passers draw aside and look at it, and yet we see just such colors and combinations everywhere, but seeing them singly is not likely to cause such a sensation. Just at present fur and braiding are the most popular of all trimmings for all heavy garments, but in less than a short time fringe will be seen everywhere. Fringe is a very graceful garniture for any garment, but it is so apt to catch things :one does not wish as additions to one's toilet. One lady went outwalking with a splendid velvet cape on with fringe around it. At the back there dangled a baby's tin rattle box. The new fringes are made of beads and Bpangles, and also of deep, heavy knot- c _ .,, f-*. _ ^i !„ ;n *,iH i A iT»oVio« npp"fi W0 o and silk noil. The most of these are in self color, bun beautifully woven, with a very soft and pleasing effect Some are in fine piubead checks, with white always as one. There are seven or eight colors. Coverts will have a still fearer vogue if one may judge by those now shown. There are nine different colors and shades. For bicycle suits there is nothing better than covert,, and they are quite as elegant and refined for tailor gowns. There are ako several colors a; Q d shades of illuminated coverts. Poplins with heavy raised cords in bayadere stripes are also among the new things to arrive, but not yet here. These goods are made cheaper than heretofore, as the filling is fiber of ramie or wood pulp mingled with cotton, but no matter how cheaply it is sold poplm is always a dear gown, as it is subject to so inany drawbacks. In wash fabrics we find lovely ginghams, madras, percales m stripes, checks or polka dots, linens with tne dots and figures in clusters and dimity in all the new colors. These include bright purple, kettuce, blue and cardinal redT also white. These have dots large or small in black or white. Some neat pinhead checks in percales have red blue black or white polka dots, ihere are many grenadines in every in»g ble design, but the prettiest are checked in various colcr combinations. White is offered in larger quantities and greater variety of weaves than it has been lor several seasons. Piques with fancy openwork stripes are pretty. Dotted Swisses are plentiful. Organdies are exceptionally beautiful with faint and artistic designs of the commoner flower mostly in stripes, A very silky cotton dress fabric has tinsel lines crossing to form plaids or lengthwise for stripes o •just appearing on the surface here and there. Printed grenadines are new and very dainty. In silks for next season there are som unusually pretty new designs in printe pongees and indias. The figures ar mostly small, many having dainty pom padour patterns in delicate colors. In bayadere silks have now been arrange in a more taking manner, with waved thick lines instead of the stripes. But what the American woman would not have in her silk gown she has accepted in her sashes. The Eoman stripes, too, have invaded some of the silks.

SHAW, of Iowa, who piesides over the Indianapolis monetary convention, is a veritable prophet of evil. He declares that the election in 1896 proclaimed a verdict In favor of the single gold standard, and that If congress falls to carry one the will of the people the deuce will be to pay. This IB the proposition he sets up: "The people h*ve a right to expect something.

By the beginning of the twentieth century the United States will have nearly 200,000 miles of railway in operation. When it is remembered that a mile of railway costs on the average $3,000, it will be seen how much money is invested in tiie iron roads. Tbo last great year of railway building in the United States was 18S7. By that time the great impetus received from the civil v.-ar and the opening of the vast wheatlields of the northwest had spent itself. • -Roads west and sonth had been put through regions where they would not: pay for a dozen years. Rival lines had:been constructed where there was only business for one, and both were crippled. The only thing to do was to wait and let the people grow up with the railroads. In some localities they have done this, in others not. lu 1SS7 there. were constructed in this country 13,983 miles of railway. Then the construction fever stopped. The next year the miles of new road dropped to 7,106. Since then year by year the number has fallen rapidly till 1897. Not even the development of the popular trolley system could swell the footings. In 11S96 the figures were 1,848, the lowest in ten years. In 1S97, however, the business began to look up a little, a very little, the figures reaching 1,864. Tho present year the increase will be considerably more than this. It is to be sinceruly hoped the dividends of the roads' stDctholders will increase even more in proportion than the rate of railway traijk laying. It is erpectsd that the gold output of the United States for 1S9S will reach f70,000.000, this being the greatest amount ever produced in the history of the country. The next largest amount, 165,000,000, was mined in 1S5S, the champion yesir of the California gold production. spangles, tiiju ai3«j ^* «~~f-, -* ted silk. One style is full 14 inches deep and is intended to be sewed straight around the skirt like a flounce. Black fringe will be used on gowns of any color Narrower fringe of the same design as the wide is provided for the ornamentation of basque or waist. Spangles shine everywhere, and narrow and wide gimp trimmings have spangles all over them One black satin dress skirt had spangles sewed on so that-the wearer looked as if she had stood under a shower of Klondike gold. It was thick and close near the waist and grew thinner and more scattering toward the bottom and made a most remarkable gown. There are gold, silver and aluminium spangles. Turquoise beads, jet beading and steel in many faceted forms are seen on the new set pieces, scroll and bands for application on to the garments. Some fringes for evening gowns have the edge of metallic spangles and beads, particularly in the porcelain blue colors. Others have the fringe of small trailing flowers, buttercups being the favorite. Wide bands of silk are tufted and beaded and edgrrt with a very rich tape fringe sometimes sis inches deep. The aluminium spangles are in various colors and sometimes iridescent, and one finds piece after piece of black net fairly covered with them.

Ribbons are wonderfully beautiful and embrace evory possible effect. Plaids are still popular. Taffetas with checks and heavy cords and striped ribbons are all with us, but gauze ribbons will take the first rank. They are striped, plaid- ed flowered, checked and made iridescent. Some are feather edged. There are also satin, grosgrain and velvet ribbons for such as like them. All are in vogue •when the colors are good. HENRIETTB ROUSSEAU. Hints In O» the Wrong Track.
