They nre afraid of the facts. Judge Dykeman made a mistake las evening in his attack on General Man ager Loreo. Every railroad man iu Logansport is proud of Mr. Loree'i rapid promotion, earned by carnes work and great ability. The fact tha lie was working in the ranks fire yeaiv ago is not a disgrace. If it Is, thei every employe iu Logiinsport today Is disgraced. Honest labor is honorable and if promotion come it is no disgrace to have worked in the ranks. Mv. Loree probably voted 1'or Cleve land; His sympathies were in that di rcotion. Mr. J. T. Brooks, the second vice president of the company, was a Democratic presidential elector ii Tennsylvunla, where he lives, ant withdrew to support McKlnley, aftei the Chicago convention. These meu were not Intimidated. They were not influenced by anything but the necessl ty of maintaining the credit of (lit nation, and thereby maintaining the Panhandle road. The employes desire this as much as the officers 'and wll no doubt stand to a man against n pol Icy that will, If successful, destroy the Panhandle company and deprive the employes of their positions. Judge Dykeman spoke to a crowd of two hundred at the Fifteenth street engine house last evening, and it was supposed that he would disclose the arguments iu favor of free silver. Iu stead of this he engaged in abuse of the Panhandle company. General Man iiger Loree and the Democrats who signed the call for a sound money club. Judge Dykeman stated that the per capita was i?54 in 1807 arid'quotes Carlisle to show that It had decreased. If he had quoted Carlisle's figures In both Instances he would have' been compelled to show to his hearers that the per capita had increased. The ?54 is irrlved at by adding up all the amounts ordered whether they were issued or not, and whether they were redemption Issues, to take up previous issues, or not. The per capita was really less Instead of greater. In the attacks on Mr. Kearney It should be remembered that Sir. Kearney's father was a regular and steady employe of Judge Dykeman, nnd what the boys know they Icarued from Judge Dykemnn. IT IS NOT AT ALL PROBABLE THAT THE NEXT HOUSE WILL HAVE A MAJORITY FAVORABLE TO THE FREE COINAGE OF SILVER AT A RATIO, OF 10 TO 1. WHEN IT, BECOMES A DEMONSTRATED FACT THAT TiHERE IS NO DANGER OF THIS COUNTRY ADOPTING THE SILVER STANDARD IN CONDUCTING THE BUSf- NESS OF THE COUNTRY, PROSPERITY WILL COME AGAIN AND, WITH LOWER TAXES ON THE NECESSARIES OF LIFE, EVERY KIND OF BUSINESS WILt.BOOM A.GAIN.—Pharos editorial, Maitti 32, 806.

Beside the usual attractions which make an August evening delightful, there wns a dog-llgbt<on-.Fifth street, a silver-tongued fakir on Fourth street, a corn-medicine man who guaranteed to remove the wool from the purchaser's, eyes. With such n'.uum ber of conflicting tlivortiseiuents, it i; little wonder that neither of them drcu the number of spectators that thel; merits doubtless deserved. The faki: on Fourth street had perhaps the larp ,est crowd, having the most nccessibl poluti The exhibition of canine hostil •Jties drew a cultivated and enthusiast!'.throng and such of the curiosity-seek i'crs as wore too late to witness these ''cijiertalnments consoled themselves bj (oliowing the Democratic drum corps to'the Fifteenth street engine house.. .Mr. Dykeman spoke from the Jlooi of a carriage iu the open air. He has a wonderful command of language, as was illustrated when ho alluded to the gentlemen who recently organized thi. Railroad Men's Sound Money club as "a "lot of — • fools." Judge Dyke man said: "Gentlemen, we are assembled. here tonight to form a Bryan free silver club. This is the most, momentous campaign since 1SCO. Then the Soutl: wns Inutile saddle and proclaimed that cotton wns king. The New York .Tews nnd the English bond-holders assembled at St. Louis, and declared that we should have a gold standard. It wns controlled by the money sharks of the world." "You know all the stock.and,, of the Pennsylvania road .ire ownec by five great English lords, and Lore Salisbury directed President 'Roberts to cut down the pay of you workingmen to increase their dividends. Rob erts went to England and was ordered to cut down your time and your wages, and such men as these controlled tho St, Louis convention. They didn't, cut down Roborts's pay of 5100,000 a. year, because he did their bidding. They didn't cut the wages of .Roberts and McCrea nnd Loree. Who is Loree, anyhow? Five years ago he came here : a pauper, and Is now ordering you railroad men to sign this paper, and- join a McKlnley club, and gets this, harebrained Kearney .Into It. .If they wanted to persuade you that the gold standard was rigbt, why didn't they-send their smartest speakers here to. tell you why, in stead of these servants, of Queen Victoria, compelling you to join their club? Who do you.want-to-con- sult about what is your best interests? Had you better go to George Forgy or Dan Baldwin or Si. Sheerin, who some-; times loans a dollar or, two? Now..I. want to tell you why, silver has ; g'one so low. England is the creditor of everybody. She compelled us. ; to de-, monetize silver In 1S73 so . .that 'She could buy-It low. She hns no .silver mines. China and India o.wc England, and when she had secured the demone- tization of silver she broke down.,its price, and ever since then, has beqn making thirty millions clear every year out of the bullion she takes to India and there buys up Indian wheat to compete with American wheat. I'll tell yoii how free silver will help you. It will give two millions of 'men employment in the silver mines at ,$2 to $3 a day. - ' • • '• • •">•-•••'' "The trouble Is we haven't enough money. Why you remember in 1803 how' prosperous it was. Then we had r capita, and I read In Carlisle's rbpoi'ts today .that we had run down to'-. $22. "We need ?75 per capita,'and' can>get it with silver. This is a fight etween the rich and the poor; between, tho-New York and Boston .Tews and, Jond-holders on one side, and the people on tho other. These railroad cor : po'rations are belying their pretenses. They claim to be for gold and they..pay«i you .off in sliver and send the gold to :he -English stockholders and bondholders.

Mr. Dykomau 1ms •i told you the whole truth, and I tell you you mustn't walk on the. shirt-tTOl 'of Qticcu Victoria." 'Judge Dykeman in his remarks was .very abusive of Ed Kearney, some of. '"'Ills' statements being BO unjust as to Iprovont repetition here.

The rivals sauntered about and laughed over the situation. They even rpoke to each other. Down at the finish line Miss Fraunoes stood, surround cd by her girl attendants, while all the gueets lined up along tie sides of the track. '' • A' handkerchief was dropped. "They're off!" cried one of the girls. Rosa looked up the line, but could not tell which was ahead.

They cheered and wrung the hand of the perspiring victor. Then the defeated Falefc held out hi* hand. ' , ,' ".You wonvOJd man," he said. "I congratulate you and her." One of the girls whispered Rosa's secret: ."She'wanted Levy .to win all the time." . • _.,.When the victor finally claimed his bluching prize he tucked her hand: under 'his -arm and they marched to the pavilion, where a dance was given to celebrate the strange betrothal. TO ORGANIZE THE "WOODSMEN. i • ________ Plan to form • Union of the I^oRfen IB the Fineries. A move is being made in. northern Wisconsin and Michigan looking to. the organization of a union among the.em- ployes of tlhe pine forest. Charles 11. Samilton, of Ludington, Mich., is the father of the movement and has already commenced to lay plans for bringing Lhe woodsmen together in an organization for their own protection and advancement. Last winter he made a trip through the forests, visiting nearly every camp for the purpose of necertain- ng tho number of men employed in each locality, and the class of accommodation and food provided for the men and the wages paid. Of this trip he gathered the material for a statement which le.will use ii; effecting'the organization, ahojwing tie'condition of the forest laborers in the different localities. .

Mexican Bull Snake, of Lincoln park, Chicago, surprised the professors of natural history at the Academy of Sciences by laying the large number of 21 eggs. The madam, with her. mate. Colonel, was sent to the park commissioners June 26, by Mr. Hathaway, of Abilene, Tex. She, with her mate and several snakes of other kinds, have since that time occupied a large g-lass cage in the basement of tbxi Academy of Sciences, The new arrivals soon became accustomed to their new homo- and have grown to be quite gentle. When Prof. Woodruff arrived at the academy the other morning- one of the employes told him that the snake had laid 15 eggs. He was at first loath to believe the statement, and was shown to the cage, where he saw 10 eggs with the snake coiled over them. Before 12 o'clock the news had spread around the park and the workmen went to see -the monstrosity, as they called it. Mr. Woodruff very gently moved her snakeship, and to his surprise found that the number of eggs had increased to 21. When the door was opened the female, which is nine feet long, was not in the least perturbed, but her mate, who is of a different color and about three feet shorter, immediately showed fight, and had to be driven into the corner of the cage before Prof. Woodruff could take her .away from the eggs. She lay quietly to one side while he examined them, and when he closed the door she crawled slowly bock and coiled herself around them. She is of a light brown color that IB nearly orange, with dark brown spots covering the entire length of the body. Being struck with the sight, he sent for Thomas Stalcy, who made a picture of It. He also endeavored to get a likeness of tie male, but was unable to do so, as he was restless. The eggs are very much like hen eggs and are about the same size and all one perfectly formed. They weigh about five ounces each and the surface .is granulated. The egg* were later removed from the cage to be put on the roof, to allow exposure to the sun for the purpose of incubation, as the snake in its native clime lays usually in, a sandy, sunny spot in order to have the sun to assist in the hatching process. The snake, though a very large one, is not of the venomous tribe. "This is one of the finest specimens I ever saw," sold- the professor, as he held her in his hands. "Death does not follow its bite unless blood poison from the teeth flete in, as they do not throw oft* any venom as docs the rattler. The eggs require from two to three weeks in hatching, and as the young require very little attention we hope to raise them. Bound h*cdsnake«, as a rule; are not poisonous, but those with the flat top heads and square jaws 'are the ones that are Invariably poisonous. This snake has round jaws and the top of the head is oval." The 'mate is of a lead color, with black spots fln the back the entire length of the body and sides, but Is blue on the stomach. GOLD COIN ON HIS FARM. Workmen on William Stottalt'i PIBCB Dig Up Tre»inr» Worth «ll,6OO. William Stoflelt, an old German fann- er in Webster county, Mo., has suddenly become rich. While digging a well in bis stock pasture the other day workmen struck an iron, safe, which was found to contain $11,600 in gold coin. A portion of a human skull was also found. It is supposed to have been an Indian grave, as the Kickapoo Indians formerly occupied this portion of 'the' state. • Where the gold came from is a mystery, which may never be solved. The most plausible theory is that it represents the plunder of a robbery committed long before the war by the Kickapoo Indians. It is known that about the year 1820, or possibly some years later, an army paymaster whose iamc cannot now be recalled, while en route to Fort Gibson, Indian territory, to pay off the soldiers stationed there, lost a Inrge gum of money in an encounter with Indians^ The government attempted to recover it, but without success. This may be the government's long lost treasure, but Stoflelt is in possession now and has taken the neces- lary legal precautions to hold it against all comers. Unless the government or somebody else can show a clear title to the money it will be Stoffelt's abso- utely after one year. A great crowd of curiously inclined people besieged :he bank as the gold was being.taken !rom a buggy and placed in the vault. The owner.of a building that has ths •lowest elevator service !n ..the city ooked into the cage on the first floor and saw a friend waiting.there. "How long are you In for?" he asked, >leasantly." . . • "For life," was the quick answer.— Detroit Free Press. — Buasian scientists report that the ..bite "poplar tree acts M a natural Ightning rod, as the dlsch'arg'e Beck* t in preference^to other trees. Dr. Dana Die* IIli Pen on Ilehnlf of th* CoAtnme. A great deal has been said, and with, reason, against the bloomer costume, 6,r.d many women, express horror at the idea of wearing it even on o. bicycle, v;hcro it, is really becoming and appropriate, says the >"ew York Sun. The facfc of its having been, selected by a foolish woman several years ago, and worn as a stepping- stone to the adop- tioa of masculine dress in its entirety, has created a prejudice agajnstit; but in point of fact, its full Turkish trou- 6£T8, strapped in ot the anldc, and short skirt falling just below the knee, are far and away more modest than the aggressively abbreviated skirt now worn as a bicycle dress, with no drapery to conceal thick ankles, big feet, dusty stockings or gaiters, in which ladies row stride over verandas, into public dining-rooms, and over country roads. The bicycle is inevitable and universal, and no time must be lost in starting off for a ride at the earliest hour possible. As a consequence this hideous attirfe is assumed as a breakfast dress, and summer hotels ore crowded in corridors and dining-rooms with nondescript figures in men's hate and tics, with feet nnd leg's protruding from short, scant petticoats, and nothing whatever to veil their, ugliness. A stronger from some distant country where bicycles have not yet intruded would be quite at a loss to understand to what sex or planet the wearers might belong. A fnll Turkish trouser, tied in at the ankle, would be comparatively graceful and becoming. The skirt could then be short without offending taete or propriety. ISLAND FLOATS AWAY. Action of » Frtthet on » Bit «f Lund In th» MUionrt River. An island in the Missouri river broken into fragments and washed away was the unusual spectacle Atehison. (Kan.) people witnessed the- other morning. For years an island of 600 or TOO acres has been one of the attractions of Atehison. It was as fertile as a garden, and was known all over the west for the excellence of the celery, asparagus, sweet potatoes and melons it produced. It >">^ the appearance of • veritable oasis in a desert, and its green shrubbery, generous shade trees, velvet lawns and cool springs were a perpetual joy.saystheClnchmatiEnquirer. Upon, this island a shooting club had i» -home, and tho baseball enthusiasts hod th«ir. grounds and .-.grand stand. Altogether it was a most pleasant resort. In a single night this island was dissolved into fragmenta. The big June rise in the Missouri river struck it, and to-day it is only a reminiscence. What was Kansas' loss, however, was Missouri's gain. With the obliteration of the island- the current left the Missouri shore and struck hard against the Kansas bluffs. The result of this is that the Missouri banner has been-planted a mile westward, and hundreds of acres of rich bottom land have been added to ite domain, while Kansas mourns the loss of its green island and pleasant pazk.
