Manufacturing Chemists La Crosse, CHICAGO, July 23.—"Back dates* were thrown to the dogs during the day in the debate between Horr and Harvey. It was more than ever a case of Greek meets Greek, and interest in the tug of war heightened at onca when it was seen that the days of Pericles, as well as 1792, 1816, 1878 and other years, no matter how historic ot important, were all barred more o* less in favor of 1895. The early part of the day's debate was taken tfp with a dis- cnssion of some remarks of Senator Morrill and had but little bearing on the question. Mr. Harvey then defined scientific bimetallism to be the free coinage of both gold and silver at an assumed ratio; a change in the size of the gold dollar whenever the parity be tween the gold and silver coins should require i the option to both individuals and the government to pay in the cheaper money. He held thht, under these circumstances, silver would not deprecinte, because there Would be an Milimited demand at the ratio fixed by law, and no man Would sell his bullion below the price at Which he could have it coined, —— -*»--- -~ Not a Question of Hatto. Mr. Horr said this matter of ratio had little or nothing to do With the question. The fact was that all of the civilized nations of the world refused to recognize silver and would only receive it at its bullion value, measured in gold. What might be if the other nations should join in admitting silver to free coinage was one thing; for us to attempt it alone was another. Mr. Harvey said that a dear dollar and a cheap dollar were comparative terms to be measured by a man's circumstances. If a gold dollar were worth more than a silver dollar, some more costly substance might be found out of which to make dollars. He said he did not propose to allow Mr. Horr to pose as the friend of the laboring man. Mr. Horr said it was in 1879 that we resumed specie payment and the only money of final redemption was gold. He asked, was distress abroad in the laud from that on? The fact is the years from 1879 to 1892 found our peo pie better employed and at better wage* than in any other same number of years since the government was formed DAY. That was W silvef less than ita frallioH vftlee. MM 1863 the government did hot cpiti 6 acAi&it of out silvet coinage for private owners. Denied by Hit*"W£. Mr. Harvey in reply denied the statement, and declflted that he could hot prove it. He presented a mint statement showing thftt over $400,000 ifl Silvet dollafshf.d been coined at the mint a Carson City, ttev., in 1870. Mr. Harvey then resumed the discus* Sirai of the question of primary and Credit money. He said that as soon as thera was an over issue of credit money it caused distrust of the government's ability to pay. This caused a run on the treasury for the redemption of credit inOiiey, and the only remedy was to either increase the aihount of primary money or a decrease of the amount of credit money. The amount of gold in the tJnited States was estimated at from $400,000,000 to §000,000.000, and of our credit moiiey about $1,000,000,000. This was too much credit nioiieyi he said, and accounted for the country's finan* cial derangement. The ' remedy was to increase the primary by renionetizing silver. Every moment's delay Would endanger the safety of the republic.

Special Mail b'rder Price for 30 Harvey Claims Th»t Some Good Has Been Accomplished by tlio Debate. CHICAGO, July 24.—The seating capacity of the rooms of the Illinois club was all taken up when the Horr-Harvey debate opened. While the size of the rooms do not permit a large audience, the officers of the club are compelled every day to refuse many applications for seats. In opening the debate Mr. Harvey said that the debate of the last session was of value as showing that during the past 40 years, silver had been steadily coined in spite of the assertion to the contrary, that by the table copied from the reports, of the mints the commercial ratio between gold and silver had been maintained at about the French coinage ratio of 15)£ to 1, for 200 years, that during the two years since 1873, as the ! result of de- uiouitization the commercial ratio had declined to 32 to 1, that in the 838 years prior to 1873) the quantity, or ratio, between gold and silver had ranged from 56 of 1 silver to of gold to 4 of silver to 1 of gold, and that during all that time the commercial ratio had clung closely to the legal ratio. During all that time the commercial price of silver bullion had remained steady. Since 1873 it had steadily and rapidly decreased. It was the dominating influence of London in exchange to all parts of the world, which led to gold being recognized by the world as the standard in all commercial transactions. / Horr Answers Baolc. Mr. Horr in his opening remarks, proceeded to call attention to what he called misleading statements in Mr. Harvey's book. For instance he de- cjared to be untrue the statement that it was believed that the cost of producing all of the gold in the world was about $8 per ounce, while some put it much higher. Mr, Horr pointed out that there had been a vastly increased production at greatly reduced prices. At the cost which Mr. Harvey spoke of the silver miners in three years would have lost over $100,000,000. Again, Mr. Harvey had put the aggregate amount of silver jn the world at about $3,000,000,000. It was estimated that there was about $6,000,000,000, Mr. Harvey had said the debts of the United States amounted to $40,000,000,000. That was an absurdity. The amount of interest which the United States paid to Europe was also untrue, Mr. Harvey said that the amount of silver referred to by him in his book was the amount available for coinage. He then distributed a table showing the production of gold and silver from 1792 to 1892 and proceeded to argue that in spite of wide relative fluctuations in production there had been no fluctuation in rela tive value till after the demonetization act in 1878. Mr, Her? continued his objections to Mr. Harvey's statements jn Uis books. He took up the matter of the elements which govern the price of wheat, ing thafc Mr. Harvey's deductions were fallacious. Only One More Day In the Harrey-Horr Debate. CHICAGO, July 29.—On the last day but one of the Harvey-Horr silver contention Mr. Horr opened the talk with a comparison of the wages and the cost of products during the years from 1860 to 1890, as shown in a table prepared by statistician Carroll D. Wright. With wages and prices in I860 taken as the index, or 100, it showed that in 1890 the prices were 92; wages 159; and the purchasing power of wages 172. Mr. Horr proceeded to argue that at no time in the history of the nation was the country as prosperous as it was at that time in spite of the "crime of '73." He submitted that the statistics were more applicable to the conditions under discussion than those of Mr. V. Sauerbeck, quoted by Mr. Harvey on Thursday as Mr. Sauerbeck's figures were made from prices in England. Mr. Harvey, in turn, took up the matter of the prices of wheat for a series of years, in reply to Mr. Horr's statement of Thursday that the farmer had received as much for his produce in gold as he had re- :eived when silver was dernone- ;ized. For answer he quoted the )rices from, year to year. He declared :hat the arguments of Mr. Horr were •hose whieh had been used in all time to bulwark tyranny. The Declaration of Independence was the proper answer to such arguments. Mr. Harvey proceeded by saying that the 'proper "iidex of prices was to measure the main articles of international use. Tables made up by the gold men even on these articles show that they were lower than in 1850. Referring to Mr. Horr's argument touching the measure of value in human toil, Mr. Harvey quoted from : au article by Mr. Horr in a newspaper in reply to a correspondent suggesting the making of so much work the equivalent of a dollar. Mr. Horr declared the proposition absurd and confusing. Deliberately Provoke the Ittdtuni and Cause the Ttoubte. KANSAS GITY, July 29.-J* A. South' ern of Wardner, Idaho, is in the city. Speaking of the reports front Jackson Hole, he pronounced them false, and charges that irresponsible Correspond' ents are responsible for them* "The truth of the matter is," h« Said, "that cattle barons With ranges in Wyoming and Idaho are determined to secure the Bannock reservation for pasturage for their cattle. With this object in view they have systematically and deliberately provoked the Indians for the past three years. If they can cause the uprising they will strive to secure the Indians' removal to another district. Perhaps some settlers have been killed, but you will eventually learn that not one murder was done by the Lemhi's or Bannock Indians. It is a notorious fact among the people of Idaho and Wyoming that cattle barons in the Teton valley country have caused all the trouble in that section." fte ttftffftfitp *tifcemft Writ £**« u titt Slur ITKifreisebj July $ .-*• The. clfy Of ^ekln, from China find Japan 1 , fifi Hdnolttltt, bfingS the following advices: Hofcokln, Srtf iS-^rincese Kittfr iftiii will not get hef petsioa.

ALL PROPERTY TO BE SOLD, INFANTRY ARRIVE. Troops From Fort Russell Keach Market Lake. DENVER, July 29.—A special to The News from Pocatello, Ida., says: Companies A, D and E of the Eighth in- fan try, U. S. A., from Fort Bussell, Wy., commanded by Major Bisbee, arrived in this city at 8:30 p. in. and left at 9 o'clock for Market Lake. There are 276 soldiers in the companies. They do not expect to leave Market Lake until something is heard from the United States cavalry, which left Market Lake Saturday afternoon for Jacksons Hole. It is hardly probable that this detachment will go further than Market Lake, but camp there to await the result. News from Market Lake says nothing has been heard from the seat of trouble for five days and that all other reports are false. DISPATCHES FROM COPPINGER. Order lit the Whisky Trust Case Made by Judge Sliowaltftr. CHICAGO, JulyJJ?, - General McNulta will soon be released from his trustee* ship over the whisky trust and the rest of the property of the concern not embraced in the sale' to take place Aug. 14 will be put on the auction block, and .the last vestige of the old trust will disappear, together with its accompanying litigation. A final decree in the case was entered by Judge Showalter Wednesday. In the decree he reaffirmed all previous orders; made perpetual the injunction accompanying the original Olmstead bill of Jan. 28, 1895, and the order appointing the receivers. The final decree was made on application of the reorganization committee. To Master in Chancery William Booth was referred the taking of proof of all claims and the preparation of the condition of the trust, and upon the presentation of his report to the court an order of final sale will be made.

The Scottish poet, With his homely pictures of a life as bare and as hardy as that of SteW England then, first revealed to the American poet what poetry really Was and how it might be made out of the actual facts of his own life. That book of Burns' poems had an even stronger influence on Whittier than the odd volume of the Spectator which fell into the hands of Franklin had on the American author whose boyhood is most like Whittier's. Franklin also Was born in a humble and hardworking family, doing early his share of the labor and having but a meager education, although always longing for learning. It is true that Irving and Cooper and Bryant did not graduate from college, but they could have done so had they persevered, and Emerson and Longfellow and Hawthorne did get as much of ^the higher education as was then possible in America. But neither Franklin not Whittier ever had the chance; it Was as much as they could do to pick up the merest elements of an education.—Professor Brander Matthews in St. Nicholas. OUTNIMRODS OLD NIM.

In addition other troops have been ordered to Market Lake from Fort Russell, so as to be in readiness for active work should their services be required. No mention is made of further trouble, and with the known peaceable attitude of the Indians on the Washakie and Duschesue reservations the situation is regarded as very much simplified.

NEW YORK, July 27.—There is a report that a short line running south and north may be built to connect tha Great Northern and Northern Pacific lines. This "cross lots scheme," as it is called, has materialized as a means for insuring the legality of the proposed union. It is looked upon as a mera suggestion, the plan being that the company owning this short line could legally acquire both main lines, as it would not be a competitor with either.

I wuz out huntin one day f er quail with my ole muzzle loadin shotgun, when three quail jumped up out of a bush right ahead of me. One flews to the'right, one to the left and the other straight ahead, but I got 'em all three." "Killed three quail going in different directions with a muzzle loading shotgun?" repeated one of his listeners incredulously. "Yep; that's what I done." "Your gun must have had three barrels then." "Nop; only two." "How did you do it?" "Well, I killed the one that went to the right with the right barrel; then, quick as a flash, I killed the one that went to the left with the other barrel; then I took after the one that went straight ahead and knocked the stuffin out of it with the ramrod." "I wouldn't believe that if I told it myself," declared one of the assein- blage. "Huh! That ain't nothin.

Distinct tides in the atmosphere, corresponding to those of the sea and produced twice daily by lunar attraction, have been traced by M, Bouquet de la Grye in the barometric records of stations removed from powerful local disturbances. The recorded observations of Brest, St. Helena, Cape Horn, Batavia and Singapore give positive evidence of a regular ebb and flow according to the moon's position, The effect is slight, but measurable, the greatest atmospheric tide at Brest being sjown by a movement of one-quarter of an inch in a water barometer, which is equivalent j;o about one-fiftieth of an inch in the mercury barometer, The tide seems to bear about the same ratio to the weight of the atmosphere that the sea tide bears to the depth of the ocean.
