Sayi the Golctbttgs Arc Woiflsti MA tit* *llUn£ to ,tttlt> tho StlveHte* for & Bltnfctftllle Currency — Langhllh and tfarvey Dobato the Money Qnestloh at Chicago. Sioux CITY, la., May 18.—An Alton, la., special to The Journal says: In a letter to the Alton Democrat, e*- Govornor Boies comes out for the free coinage of silver at a 10 to 1 ratio without waiting for any international action. Mr Boies says: "It is idle to expect the masses of the American people to wait for the cooperation of foreign nations before they settle the question. They have no faith in such a remedy. They have taken the matter into their own hands and they will settle it one way or another, so far as this country is concerned, m the next national election that is held. Whore to Place the Consequences. "If the unrestricted coinage of silver follows and the result is all that the gold niononietallists predict, the consequences, if evil, should not be charged to friends of free coinage of both metals. They did not seek the issue. All that they asked was an honest bimetallism, with reasonable safeguards for maintaining the parity ol the two. This has been denied them upon false grounds as I believe that no possible legislation could effect that end. frankly admit that if the question is to be narrowed to the single issue of gold niouomctalisni on one side or Unconditional Free Coinage of both metals at the old ratio on the other, I am in favor of free coinage because I believe it will at least be the beginning of a broadened financial system that will, if necessary, be so perfected in the near future as to give us an absolutely safe and sound currency, the foundation of which will be, legally at least, and, I believe, practically, the equal use of both gold and silver as the money of redemption."

The boom was simply the outcome of a genetal awakening of specn- ative energies all over the country. btton, oil and stocks have had their turn and wheat is now coming in for its share. Professional traders who scalp the market daily and know the ins and outs pretty thoroughly, bowed before the bull storms, and when there Were outside orders in the market trade stood still for local operators realized the futility of try* ing to follow out ordinary influences which the mad rush of buying kept up. The bears ran like sheep in a storm. In fact, the speculative public may be said to have owned the wheat markets of the country. Brokers had as many orders as they could attend to, and private wires in all directions were kept hot carrying orders.

WASHINGTON, May 18.—The president has signed the proclamations declaring the Yanktou Sioux reservation in South Dakota and the Siletz reservation in Oregon open to settlement at noon May 21. The lauds will be thrown open to settlement within a few clays of the issuance of the proclamations. The general land office, it is understood, has already placed itself in readiness to carry out the provisions of the proclamations. The Yankton reservation embraces about 168,000 acres of the best land in the Dakotas, but the Siletz is a small one. BRULE SURVEY. Profesnor tauglilln and William yey Dobnte the Silver Issue. CHICAGO, May 18.—A stirring political encounter took place last night, hardly paralleled in the West since the famous struggle between Lincoln and Douglas just on the eve of the civil war. Last night's platform combatants were two giants of the opposing sides in the raging financial controversy _J. Lawrence Laughliu, professor of political economy in the University of Chicago, the favorite authority of President Cleveland, and William H. Harvey, author of "Coin's Financial School." The spacious rooms of the niinois club on stately Ashland boulevard were crowded to almost suffocation when the president of the club, Dr Homer M. Thomas, announced all in readiness for the dress suit gladia- since died, tors. -The proposition to be discussed was read as follows: "Resolved, That the United States should at once enter upon the free coinage of silver at the ratio of 10 to 1, independently of the action of any other nation." . Mr Harvey spoke for an hour m the affirmative and Professor Laughlin an hour and a half in the negative, Mr. Harvey then having SO minutes for a rejoinder. Both men were liberally applauded. FAVORS AN INDEPENDENT TICKET. Major Sears nnd Party at Work on Routes For the Superior Canal. WEST SUPERIOR, Wis., May 18.— Major Sears, the government engineer, has gone to Brule river to resume work on the survey of the proposed canal connecting the Mississippi river with Lake Superior. One survey has been completed and now another will be made. The major has a crew of 15 picked men. He will remain a few days and then leave the work to his assistant. It is expected the survey will be completed in four weeks. SEVEN MEN KILLED. Terrible Boiler Explosion at West Uing- haiu, Pa. WEST BINGHAJI, Pa., May 18.—The bodies of eight men, horribly mangled, scalded and disfigured, were picked out from the ruins of the Pack, Haskeel & Cobbs saw mill here, the victims of the explosion of the boiler in the mill. Five were killed and two of the others have Debs Will Investigate TEHRE HAUTE, Ind., May 20.—President Debs of the American Railway union will leave in a day or two for St. Cloud and Grand Forks to make a personal investigation of the cases of the five American Railway union men who have been discharged from the service of the Great Northern railroad. LATEST MARKET REPORT. General Weaver Says Democrats and Populists Must Unite. DENVER, May 18.— General J. B. Weaver was interviewed by the Associated Press upon the duty of the Populists in the coming presidential campaign. He said: . ,. "The Populists will never go into the Democratic party, nor will any number of the Democrats go into the Populist party, no matter what action the conventions may take. There is but one sensible and patriotic thing to do. We must unite upon an independent ticket. The head of the ticket should be some man of Democratic antecedents like Sibley, who has left his 'party and declared war for the people. The vice president should be some present Republican,' like J. G. Caldwell, who is for financial' reform." '. FAVQR' BIMETALLISM. Committee of Prussian Diet Adopts a Motion for a Conference.' LONDON, May 18,— A Times dispatch from Berlin says that the committee appointed by the upper house and the Prussian diet to discuss the motion ot Count von Mirbaoh, the leader of the agrarians, favoring an international • agreement for the use of both gold and silver, has accepted the motion by a vote of 10 to 4. Among the members of the committee are: Freiherr von Manteuffel, Count von Frankenberg and Count von Dohla Lauck, for the bimetaliists, and Dr. Koch, of the Imperial bank, for the mouometallists.

Inventions in which tho mysterious fluid is the force powcf havo crowded so fast into the patent office that the list would, if printed, require a book of tremendous dimensions to frecofd It. Tho many thousands of these products of tho mechanic's brain must be scheduled under tho head of toys, however. FeW have been found of every dny practicability, and still fewer haVo revolutionized existing conditions. Among tho Inttef tho telephone r.nd illuminating appliances stand out most prominently. Electrical inventors nre a unit in tho opinion that the Essex page printing telegraph instrument, for thnt is tho name of tho newcomer, is n fit companion in usefulness to the telephone, and that tho invention is tho most important otic sinco tho people of tho civilized world commenced to transmit their voices over wires. Instead of printing on ft long tape, as in tho "ticker," tho machine causes a lino to bo written across n page, nnd the shifting and lining arc done automatically. By pressing oil the desired letter on the keyboard an arm similar to though longer than the ones which carry the typo to the ribbon in tho typewriter is raised to tho shaft, which revolves with great rapid- ty until n contact With the point of the arm and tho post corresponding with tho key is made. Then the little wheel stops, bumps up against the. white paper nnd leaves tho impression of the letter. Tho principle involved in this notion is precisely that illustrated in n music box. The little posts which extend from tho cylinder all have a duty to perform, and their position on the cylinder determines tho nlr they produce with their contact with the forks. Tho spacing is done with tho same action as applies in tho typo writer. When the end of the lino is reach ed, tho pressing of one key causes tho hold cr containing tho white pnper to shift tine at tho same timo raises it tho space of a lino. Tho practical uses of this wonderful in vention nro illimitable. Tho machine! may bo operated at the limit of distanci to which electrical force may bo carried and what that distance is no man can say. Very trifling is tho loss of force observed at the receiving end of tho ocean cables. So at least 8,000 miles is no obstacle in tho way of transmission' of characters which convey intelligent moaning. To n single wire may bo attached as great n number of receivers as to tho ordinary telegraph instrument. Tho machine cannot lie, as the Morse instrument frequently does. Climatic conditions frequently cause tho arbitrary alphabet of dots and dashes to become jumbled in transmission. For one letter another may bo clicked out. Added to these dangers to correct transmission aro the frequent errors made by tho operators themselves. These nro among the reasons w^hy tho great telegraph companies refuse 1:6. admit responsibility unless tho message is "repeated." At tih.0'majority ..'of railway stations nlong any cf .tho great trunk lines tho agent is tho buggago man, ticket seller and telegraph operator. To tho errors of rural operators many of tho most distressful accidents have been duo in tho past. With a hundred duties crowding upon him at about tho hour for tho arrival of trains, it is littlo wonder that ho becomes easily befuddled, and the use or omission of so lit;lo n word zis "not" in instructions from bho train dispatcher has'inoro than once hurled two rushing trains together in disastrous collision. The station ngcnt is frequently absent from his post, or, overworked, ho falls sleep. TiAc printing telegraph instrument completely abolishes nil such dangers. Tho operator may go to sleep, bvit tho messngo may l»e delivered just the same, and when he awakes there are his instructions plainly printed for him. Ho need neglect no switch or fail to fill tho station lamps. His instructions will be waiting for him when he returns to his lair. In other words, where it takes two persons to operate tho Morse instrument—a sender and a receiver—but ono is necessary to perform better work with tho new machine. There can bo no mistake in tho now system at tho receiving end. Tho sender of tho message presses tho letter li B," and it is absolutely certain that tho letter "B" will instantly bo printed on tho white paper nt tho other end of the line. A general order intended for every office on the circuit can bo transmitted with onco sending it, or if tho order is intended but for one office nnd it is desirable that other offices of tho circuit should not know its contents all may bo switched nsldo save the 0110 wanted. Another point of vast significance is that any man, woman or child who can read can operate tho machine with n few hours' practice and send a message as rapidly as tho fastest operator in the world could take it from tho wires under tho present system. Besides that tho accuracy attained is of vital importance. And it is also pointed out that while many operators can pound out 140 to 180 words a minuto on T ho ordinary typewriter from dictation the mechanism of tho page printing telegraph instrument will not permit of more than a third of such speed. Hence the sending operator is forced to bo careful. At all times when ho 4s send- Its principal food consists of the flesh of Seal and walrus, but it also cohdeseeflfai * the tattafifie'fi 6i whales, thelafgetklndl Of fish aiid othe* aquatic animals afideVoSj fo* wAnt of something betfcef, to mhrlttd vegetables. It wnndefs about continually ih search of seal, generally against the wind, as it has a good k nose. That it can smell tho scat so fat off must also be attributed to the pufe alt which uhinter- 'uptedly sweeps tho surface of tlie loo til these high latitudes. In catching its i>*ey It often shows remarkable cunning. Although ft good swimmet and diVer, It cannot reach tho seal in the watefr, but must take them oh tho Ice. This is no easy task; for tho seal is Wary, hears and sees Well and always keeps close to tho edge of tho fioo in order to bo able to tako to the water at tho first approach of dan- r. Tho bear, however, knows well enough how to outwit it. It marks tho seal at some distance and thctt creeps forward undercover of projections and pieces of ico. To deaden tho sound it twists its feet in such n way that the haired sido is underneath and in this manner succeeds in coming noiselessly on Its victim. • If tho ico bo flnt nnd offer no shelter, the bear dives under the floes nnd appears suddenly in tho opening near which tho scnl is lying, Even when basking on a lonely floe in open water it is not safe, for tho bear glides noiselessly down from the ice, swims out toward tho floe with only its noso visible above tho surface of the water, nnd when nt it, suitable distance dives completely under and nomcs up closo to the seal. It has been observed how, like tho Eskimo, tho bear will Ho for hours watching tho seal holes—holes which tho senl will keep opeu in tho ico to enable them to get upon it—ready to strike with its paw tho first which is" incautious enough to stick its head up. The smaller seal ore an cosy prey, while, on the other hand, tho bladder noso nnd wnlrus may cost it many a hard fight. I saw a place where n light of this kind had taken plnco between n bladder noso nnd a bcnr, nnd tho marks in the snow showed them to have bocti two mighty warriors. Tho body of the bladder noso was still lying there. Part of tho blubber had been eaten up, but the flesh lay un- toucl ed, nnd tho marks nnd gaehcs proved that it had not given in without n struggle.—Longman's .Magazine. Ambrose A. Call, t .

Samuel 1 DON'T TAKE ANY CHANCES STANDARD AND LOCAL TIME. Geographical Local of the Five Longitudinal Belts In This Country. With tho enormous Incrcaso of railway traveling tho necessity arose for inventing somo method of counting t-lmo which should avoid tbo complications arising from tho use of local moan time, which varies with every milft of east or west travel. What is known as the "now standard time" was adopted by agreement by nil tho priucipal railroads of tho United States at 12 o'clock noon on Nov. IS, 1883. Tho system divides tho continent into flvo longitudinal belts nnd fixes n meridian of time for each belt. These meridians nro 15 degrees of longitude, corresponding to one hour of time, apart. Eastern Maine, -New Brunswick and Nova Scotia use the sixtieth meridian. Tho .Canadas, New England, tho middle states, Virginia and tho Carolinas use the seventy-fifth meridian, which is that of Philadelphia; tho states of tho Mississippi valley, Alabama, Georgia and Florida and westward, including Texas,'Kansas and the 'larger pnrfc' of Nebraska and Dakota,..use- tho ninetieth meridian, which is that" of New Orleans. Tho territories of tho western border of Arizona raid Montana go by tho timo of the one hundred and fifth meridian, which is that of Denver, and the Pacific states employ tho one hundred and twentieth meridian. The timo divisions are known as intercolonial time, central time, mountain timo and Pacific timo. A traveler passing from one timo belt to another will find his watch an hour fast or too slow, a.acording to tho direction in which ho is goijjg. All points in any timo division tlio timo of tho meridian must set timepieces faster or slower than the time indicated by tho sun, according as their position is east or west of tho line. This change of system reduces the timo standards .used by tho railroads from 58 to 5, a great convenience to tho railroads and tho traveling public.—Detroit Free Press. Long Straight Railroad Runs. Tho greatest stretch of perfectly straight railway track—more scientifically termed "tangent"~Sn North America is to be found on tho now "Soo" lino of the Canadian P&eiflo railroad, beginning at a point a few miles from Pasqua. It continues for 70 miles and altogether in Canadian territory. Tho next longest is west of St, Thomas, on tho Michigan Central, which is about 07 miles. Tho longest stretch of tangent in tho world is to be found in tho Argentina Republic and continues for 250 miles, It completely eclipses tho model lino of tho czar of Russia from St. Petersburg to Moscow, which—taking a rule aiul placing it on a map—ho ordered to bo built perfectly straight. On tho survey being made it was found that lakes, hills and rivers would not admit of it, and though as straight as possible it is anything but a perfect tangent.—New York Journal. ..
