COMPARE THEM. •The Republican party ia unreflerved- '.•,.-ty for sound money. It caused the en- ..•rtment of the law providing for the :. nranptloii of specie payments In 1870; xatace then every dollar has been a* good ,M gold. ' "We are unalterably opposed to every '•OMwnre calculated to debase our cur. ~iwtcy or impols the credit of our coun- toy. We are therefore opposed to the •'•-•ftee coinage of silver except by tater- sjBtkmnl agreement with the leading sommereiaJ.natloiM of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, and until then such gold standard must be preserved. ' " •' "All OOB sUver and paper currency -»nst be maintained at parity with ..

We demand that tha «tendard silver dollar aboil be a full legal teoder. equally with gold, for all debt*, publte and private, and we favor rach legislation ae will prevent the V-toxroetleatlon of any kind ot, legal ten- ; 4er money by private contract.—Detno- . • uatlc platform. ,•-•; We demand free and unlimited eoto- - we of silver and gold at the present le.,.'. -s«l ratto of 16 to 1.—Popoltot platform, IBM.

WJvem the Pharos floppw for the sake of the local county patron age (they .refused to sell their principle- for a jdb, as the Pharos did, and re maiBned consist-ant sound money men And now the PMroe, wMch sold out fo a job, accuses these worthy citizens who have been consistent and honora We, with doing that which In fact it on ly ds guilty of. The Demoeraits wli have remained honest and true to thel convictions retain .the respect of th wmnMUiilty. The Pharos is an object o oonltompt the State over. Its servile an archlstic utterances, its attempts to de stroy both JaJbor and capital merit tlie universal condemnation which Its course occasions. No self-respettlng raiiilroad man can, suffer .the disgrac< a support of its-policy Involves. FREE SILVER "ARGUMENT." A dastardly attempt to array labor against capital was mia^e Friday even Ing. Tie Pharos said: "There arc two mighty forces oper nidnig In tufa caimpaignw One might} (oree te the pi-oducdng of mlliioBS, who by reason of the increased purchasing power of gold find the reward of their toll unTemuuerattve. « * * Another .mighty faroe--a force composed, of momey leawlers, high salarlod officials 'and profoselonal men aria directly Interested in miatotaiilning the purchasing .poweo- of gold." The ihonest oltizens who advocate sound money know, as tlie Pharos knows, that there cannot-be one'.coiin for the poor, another for the rich> If gold te the money for fflie capitalist'it'Is the 'money for the wage worker. Money must circulate freely or It ceases,to-be imomey. If the poor mnni cannot gct-the equivalent of gold for his wag«s the employer'cannot get it ifor Ms profits; There can. be no dlffcsreaec. The Pharos argum'ent is absurd and its conclusions amrchlstllc anfl dtereputalble. It know* better. It knows that ithcre la no argument in favor of free silver. It knows that It must arouse tlte prejudices of the most Ignoramt dif It would succeed. Im order ito emphasize its .own Infaimy It double leads its seditltous utterances. Let -there be an emiphatlc condemnation of tliiis at the polite'. IT IS NOT AT ALL PROBABLE THAT THE NEXT ROUSE WILL HAVE A MAJORITY FAVORABLE TO THE FREE COINAGE OF SILVER AT A RATIO OF 1C TO 1.

ChlBB'l Ure»t«t Oenenl It Pre«mltt«»t- \j • H«D ot P«»«B. Ex-Secretary Joh'n-W. Foster contribute* a sketch of "The Viceroy LI Hung Chang" to the Century. Mr. Foster says: "Although the greatest general his country has'produced In this century, Le is'preeminently a. man of peace. Conr tucius, whose disciple he IB proud local] himself, taught, the folly of war, and the practi'xj of the government and Chinese society in. this respect Sa inspired by his teaching*. While Japan has exalted the warlike spirit, and there the soldier la the idol of the people, in China the Krtdier is lightly esteemed, and always lakes rank below the literary class. Rut notwithstandirg this peaceful spirit^ there- ia often a war party in China, and on two or three memorable occasions it ha« fallen to the lot of Viceroy LI to be placed in antagonism to it. The-Kuldja question, about 1880, brought the country to the brink of war with Russia, and It waaonly by his most Ectltw resistance to the war party at Peking that a peaceful settlement was «cached. It is now well known that h» opposed'th« late hostilities with Japan. The government of the latter during th» progress of tb« war obtained possession of and published certain memorial* (o the throne, dated In 1862, and forwarded by the viceroy, which looked to the ultimate invasion of Jopun; but at b*«t it was merely an inchoate scheme and probably encouraged by the viceroy to aid his projects for the defense of tha approaches to Peking. He had a better Jnwwledge of the military strength of Japan and of the. weakness of China than any other of the emperor's advisers, and he feared the consequences 1o his country of a conflict." THE WILY SEAL. Bow H« MMUhce* t« Catch £•• Oolli ... The seal Is probably the clumsiest an- Jmal In the world, says the New York leobrder. .He likea to bosk to the sun nil day and when he moves he Is exceed- ngly sluggish and awkward. It has often, been wondered how this animal manages to secure its favorite food, wild sea fowl. See gulls are so wild that it ia difficult even for man to get within gunshot of one. The seal seems to realize that t would be a waste of time to attempt to crawl tip on the gulls as they rest ipon th« -water and catch them una- war(M. 8o.;^«) watchea until, the. gulls ire Booring slowly through the air and lose to the waves. Then the seal divea nto the sea and swims underneath the water fc» son* di*tanoe; By the tJm« «e has managed to.swiin about li» feet ,he,gull has forgotten the presence of t* enemy- ThU gives the seal his op- xjrtunlty. H« cautiously rtoes'to ths urfaoe of the. water it 'some distance rom tb« point ftt which he dived, and Iknva merely the .tip of hit great nose o appear sjiov* th« water.. . • , Remainmg In this position, he ,givw ,is mormon* body a rotary, motion, so hot,hU; nose describe* ei circle on..the burface of the ocean. .He does this so skillfully that to the gull his-nose looks like a nsh at play. This catches the grill's eye, and it at once darts down •with the speed of on arrow, aiming rtraight for- the-little dot. The seal sees It coming and sinks a few inches, nnd as the gull strikes-the water with tremendous, force' the seal's jaws close upward arid the gull disappears. FOSSIL MEAL. A N»w O«B»n P^gAlct Whleh HM MMJ C§«fc i-''«K££i'3P««i, A new product, called fossil meal, if being introduced from Germany for preventing the loss of heat from radiation which takes place to so large an extent from the uncovered surfaces of boilers, steam pipes, cylinders, and steam plant generally. It consists of infusorial earth, obtained from certain mines in Hanover, combined with other itnb- stancea to secure greater strength and cobeslveiiess. Thi» Infusorial earth Is composed of millions of minute organisms, whose hollow form gives to tho fossil meal 1U high porosity, sjid consequently its non-conducting power. The use of this material, however, is not confined to the manufacture of non- conducting composition for steam pipe* and engine and boiler surfaces.- It i« used in safe making as a fire-resisting compound, nnd by explosive manufacturers in the production of dynamite. It. is In demand for cold storage purposes, for covering cold pipes from contact with the wanner external sir. It' is also employed in chemical manufacture, as a preventive against damp; for cleaning gloss and metal; as a tooth paste; it is made up in to blotting paper, and it ia employed in the manufacture of sealing wax. It makes np Into ft firebrick of one-fifth th* ordinary weight, with a flre-reslstlng quality equal to that of quartz. It has many. Other uses, one of which Is filtration and it is bein? utilized for the domestic purification of water. . CAPTURING ELEPHANTS. •port That th* M»hM*Jsh . IndnlfW In. The enterprise Is organized for the vmusement of the maharajah, and takes place imly once in abou-t four yearaj else the forest would be denuded of big game. A small army, consisting of about 5,000 men aad perhaps three elephants and a few horses, take part in the hunt, says Chambers' Journal, and they carry tente and provisions, just aa if a campaign against at powerful enemy : were in progress. When the pad marks of the elephant are found he is steadily tracked down, «nd as soon M he is found a. traliMxLnghter of hJ» own species is urged agafaut him. As! a role,- he steadily .Tetieata upon sight-of his • pursuers, ..and their object is to press' him- so a* to tire him out He then stands at bay, and tbs tug. of war commences. The opposing unimals butt at one another with their heads down, and should one show his flanks, he is quickly brought to earth. When finally conquered, the wild elephant impressed by bis pursuers toward; water, of which he ia so much in need after his exertion* that his hind leg* can be shackled as he drinks. He is then kept attached by ropes to other elephants until he gradually becomes accustomed 'to bondage,. and' in'»- few, months he is completely under control. * The sport is'a bloodless one, and the el-' eph«ata when captured are most kindly treated. AT END OF THIRTY YEARS. Manias* of Two QosJrw* Af tor s> lamg '••• ConrttbJp. Abram Marts, bachelor, aged 60 yean, and Miss Sarah B. Williams, spinster, aged 47 years, residents of the Quaker village of Damascus, p., were married several days ago, it is just learned. The ceremony was as simple and as quiet ai it 'was possible to make it And yet the wedding was the culmination of a courtship of 30-years. For an even longer time the now happy 'couple had attended the old brick Quaker church and had met in the church Sunday after Sunday. A smile and a word at ths door, was about all the courtship this remarkable copule had done.
