His Editorial Forced Butler to Notify Him. The announcement of Chairman Butler (Senator from North Carolina). »f the Populist Committee, that Bryan iind Watson are to be formerally notified of their nomination by the St. Louis convention is not voluntary. He was forced to lake this action by Tom Watson, the Jiei-y, red-headed editor- cundid.-ilo from Georgia, but. not until some sharp letters were exchanged. • Watson has lived on notoriety ever since lie went to Congress. The decision of Butler, who has been the head aud tail of tiie Populist committee for sonic time, that there should lie no formal uotitication grieved Watson sorely. WATSON'S PEN WON. Finally his grief turned to wrath when ho learned that Butler was pay- •]ug no attention to tho letters of remonstrance that he had sent him ,aud taking up his sharpest peu, dipped it Into gall and proceeded to w.rlte some Butler "roasts" for the editorial page of his Populist paper. When Butler heard of this ho forthwith answered Watson's letters, and speedily reached tlie conclusion that, after all,.It would be tlie proper thing to have a formal notification.' Watson is joyful in his victory, but Butler is determined to get .revenge some future time, when the editor-candidate will not have a chance 'of injuring the Populist party or Its loaders by stirring up a national rumpus. NOTIFICATION BY MAIL. The formal letter of notification to Bryan and Watson is now being prepared. Tho notification will probably occur at Lincoln, aud at Atlanta, but thc,.details are subject to the wishes of'the members of.the Committee on Notification, of which Senator Allen is. Chairman. It is felt that It is unnecessary and may be inconvenient to the committecmen to make the trip across tho country, In which case the .notification will be made by sending a.letter to' Messrs. Bryan and Watson. SUFFERED A LOSS. One Leading Democrat Tells An- ;: other What is Wrong With Him. Two'; prominent Democrats walked up Market street yesterday earnestly dS^nssing the money question. Both are for sound money but while OLIO la .outspoken In his belief, the other flopped early In tho fight to the'repudia- •tion banner. Said Ben to John, "Why when a free silver coinage law Is In force, Mexican dollars will go to a premium in this country and our silver dollars will bo at par witli gold." "Now, Bon," snld John, "ain't you ashamed to make such statements? You know that's all nonsense. Have you lost what little sense you ever hnd? If silver should-go to a premium, where then-'would be the 'cheap dollars' you talk about?" The listener pnssed on and heard no more. The two prominent Democrats talking. , •A; OUR SILVER LESSON. <¥?' Did the law of -1890, providing for the compulsory purchase by the government of 4,500,000 ounces of silver each month at the market price, raise the price of silver? A. The first effect was a sharp rise, but this was transient. The price soon fell, and thence steadily declined. Q. .What proportion of tho silver output was consumed by the government under tho act of ISOp? , ' A. At tho price -at which silver stood for some mouths after the passage of the act of 1SOO, tlie. government practically purchased the entire .annual output of silver at that time in this country. : Q. And still the price ol' silvi.-r filil oil'? - ' A. Yes. It fell from J.O in ISOO to 01 In IS!).'.!, when Ihe pniv.hasi):g chius.' or the ai-t. of 1800 was repealed. ; Q. What: was the i-ITuut of tin- act of .1878, which required the pun base by the government of not less than ij>2,- UUO.O(K) nor more than S-|,000,000 w.orth of silver each moiifh. the sa-mu to be coined into dollars',' • • A. Silver steadily declined, It 'fell, oft from 02'in 1S77 Hi 72 In 1,S50. Q. These coinage nets wore .Ihcn. no;: suecc.ssful'r - • A. They did not succeed, and their, failure was just and inevitable. No jrovernniout has ever undertaken,, on; Its own account. 10 coin cheap' money/ or to take a less amount of bullion than the face viilue of the coin demanded nnd turn it into coin with full legal tender power, and made a success of It.- Q. Have not some sovereigns Issued underweight coins'. 1 . • A. Yes. That is, they issued ..coins of light weight for tlie purpose of cheating. This, however, was not. the purpose of the United- States goveru- ment in 1S7S nnd 1800. Q. In the light,of this experience can this government honorably experiment with its credit, by further silver, legislation on its own account?,..;.,, ;; j, A., Emphatically no. , ,"!< , . —Mall aud Express.; CONGRESSMAN BYNUfl.

"College field dny sports have always been a feature of the closing clays of almost every college in the haul. The development; of the physical man, together with tlie expansion of his intellect, is now recofriii/.ed as imperative in .-ill first-class colleges, and the .'-ymnii'siiims are filled with muscle developers in ill! of cm: foremost colleges. In this city there are many '•<-x-colle'gc Hoys who have participated in most, if not all of the leading State field days, and it is thought that a program of varied interest can 1)0 nr- ranired .and presented which will arouse a greater interest in such healthful sports. The projectors have in contemplation :i regular field day which will include a number of events of Interest and will be free to all witnesses, It is thought that a number of handsome prizes can be secured for presentation to the winners in the events, and. indeed, there have been 'many such presents offered by merchants who will take advantage of the advertisement there is to be Rained in offering a prize in their name. A number of the "head pushers" of the scheme will meet with the members of thu Riverside Cycle club lion- day night at the club house, to confer wi'fh them as to the various bicycle events that will be put on the program, and to arrange for a. permanent organ- 'izat'ion. The Riverside club officers have signified their willingness to throw open (he club rooms to the managers of the field day affair, as a place iu which to hold the, necessary preliminary meetings of arrangement, -ami the club members who have been spoken to regarding the affair have offered to do .everything they can to promote the scheme. It cannot, be given short of. three to fonr weeks, for it is necessary for contestants iu athletic events to condition themselves before attempting severe physical exertion. Therefore the day 'will not be announced until after the first meeting of tlie promoters of the event, and an organization has been •.effected. •BROTHER WALLBATH'S SPEECH. 'Brother Wallrath naturally did not like 1 the way his remarks read in-print. and certainly his logic was not sound. •Tlie .Totirnal reported tho speech Just as he uttered it, that he might, not 'think any part of it misquoted. Brother .Wallrath told a. great many people he •was for. sound money jnst after the Chicago convention, and he should be ''true, to his honest convictions. The Journal wanted to. make him' see that his inconsistency was not creditable to him, and that he might sec that lie •was exactly reported, his exact pro : .uuuciiition and language was used. Tho .Tournal hopes to see him withdraw from the Democratic ticket and Come but for sound money, where the German citizens all over the United States' stand.

' A party of young men recently played a practical joke on a young icompanioii named Crawford in Bcthle- ,hem' township. They took him with them' to a melon patch. One of them fired a shot, another fell as if wounded, .and all the mock robbers took to their heels. Young Crawford ran the entire; distance to his home, falling several times':on the way, and It has been found that he was hurt internally. Ho has been confined, to his bed since tbe night of the cruel joke, and his condition is said to be serious. Crawford was once an Inmate of the hospital at Long Cliff. • ",-; HIS WHISKERS GREW. ••.George W.

Kor some time past, in fact almost- all summer, the residents in and about Galveston have been missing poultry, ind the thieves have become so-uumer-- ous nnd bold that the vigilance"rnetuod- of trapping the marauders has been advocated. The last attempt to rid a hennery of its occupants resulted rather disastrously to the thieves, and iu consequence there are some familiar faces missing from the table in one or more Kokomo households. Last Thursday night .T .A. Emerick, who lives just south of Galvestou, wns. awakened by his wife in the stilly- hours of the night, aud informed that iome one was raising caiu In the chick- in yard. Mr. Emerick armed himself witli a rusty 'musket, loaded to the muzzle with leaden slugs and' rock salt, and crept out to the ben no"- «n a trip of exploration. He founa u horse and wngon hitched to a post at his barnyard gate arid, on the ndvice of his wife, secured the rig from the fellows who were at work in his hen house by executing a flank movement ;ind getting between the thieves and tho outfit. The latter, on finding that they wore discovered, jumped the back fence and escaped before Mr. Emerick had an opportunity to empty his-cannon at them. Mr. EmorleK did the next best thing to loading the thieves with the contents of his musket, and that was'to drive the rig to Kokomo, where he secured Oscar Welty's bloodhounds and put them ou the trail of the chic-ken-roost despoilers. The hounds followed the trail to Kokomo, whore the track was lost. A number of suspicious characters of that city are under suspicion, and some of them have departed to greener fields and pastures new to await the calming of the storm. ' The people iu the vicinity of Galveston have been pestered to death with the work of these chicken lifters, aud they propose to put a stop, .to the depredations, if they have to sit up nights to guard their hen roosts; and if they do, and one of the gang is bold enough to attempt a raid, the co'ronor may have a job, or at least It will give a physician something to do iu picking the shot and slugs from the meaty portion of the chicken thief's anatomy.

Rather put up with a soaking than run the risk of being struck by lightning. But supposing you are in tbe forest at the time, then be careful of your choice, as some trees are more liable to be struck than others. From observation In the forest lands of Lippe Detmold, extending over a period of eleven years, it appears that lightning struck fifty-six oaks, twenty firs, three or four pines, but not a single beech, though out of cvery v ten trees there were seven beeches exposed to the raging elements.
