According to Mr, Bryan, free -silver would so rise ns -to prove no robbery, aind -to correct this, robbery must bo committed and tno proceeds be given to men who ware not born at the tl'nic of the pretended; robbery of '73. This-is an '.'uTmisslan of fraud at the present time in the 1C to 1 proposl- ti'on, and it -amounts to nothing else.

But the troth .is that only one •wrong is Involved, and thnt Is "the cri'me of '06, free coinage at 16 to 1." IT IS NOT AT ALL PROBABLE THAT THE NEXT. HOUSE WILL HAVE A MAJOR-IT?

An insect visitation was experienced to. a large section ol' Chicago the other nightv-lwfore which the sand-fly plague of the earlier summer paled into insig- nificiiince. Multitudes ol bintJ< beetles fell in almost a shower over_the eastern, part of tho North si«U>, alighting'Ta th* 1 " largest numbers m the brightest ports' of the section and displaying n peculiar St-cfd'encC^or brilliantly-lighted North Clark strec^.. ' ^ Fl'Om the bridge to Lincoln park tic": pest was virulent. There were- nc-t so! man y ol tho bugs—perhaps a score to every electric light along- the street, but their ways -were devious a.nd annoying. They would fly around the globe of the iirc.lo.nip for a. few moments ajjc then drop, selecting n. time when a man or woman, got under them. Many pedestrians caught beeU.es in the back of their iiocl:s and affectionately squeezed them between ilesh nnd shirt' band, expostnliHiiig- all the time. With hasty fingws and horror and vociferous tongue the unfortunate wa_vfarers dug 1 down tliojr biicks and pullec 1 . the insects —they felt as big- as animals—out from their lodgment. Falling on huts, the concussion of the big- fellows resembled tho thud of a, brick, and all in all they made thing's interesting for the foot passengers. Unde'r every electric light a large number of the bugs cbo.sc a resting- place which speedily became eternal, for every person's foot became a compressor and bug exterminator unwittingly to the ow.n«r. The crunch, crunch, crimch of people's feet in the lighted places wa.s reminiscent of snow and cold winter evenings, but it was more distinct and productive ot sundry "ughfi!" from the pedestrians. The bee.tles grew more and more numerous o« the night passed and by midnight they were too abundant for the comfort of citizens. They also displayed a fondness for the electric street cars and flew into the faces of motormen, passengi-ra and conductors with abrupt rudeness. They d id not like life very well, it'uppejxred, for they braved death on the raJl and under foot in a reckless manner. The expressions of surprise at the unpleasant visitation were frequent, and'many per-, eons captured, one on two specimens of the peculiar beetle for future examination. It was the general opinion that they were n rare species, and no one could be found who had ever seen anything quite like them. • The beetles are an inch and a hadf : lonp; and of the extended oval shape of their kind. TlJey are u'deep black all over—dull black on the under portion and shiny black on top. ' , 'I; GOLD OUTPUT DIMINISHING.-., So Boportt tlio Aiiiorlcan Consul In -llrlt-" talk UuiH.na— "fho RoiiHon Ttivr.cfor. : Consul. Patterson, at_Dciiiura, in the course of a report to the stale department on the gold industry of British Guiana, says that tho output of gold has been diminishing since 3893 and the diminution has continued during' the present year, which he attributes to the fact that the majority of paying, claims have already been niarki^l.S)' He says that were, the Expense of com- rnunTtufion "with the interior reduced and the heavy government r<jyahy of PO cents p'er ounce aba-ted, "uian-y of the ere<J<3 of the colony cfiiild lx» worked, as they, all show "color." About 7,000 men-'are employed in mining by syndicates', and one of the most successful, producing about 13,000 ounces in three years, is managed by an American-. Prospecting costs about ..ten times as much in the United States, a small party with four laborers in four months costing from $500 to $800. The possibilities of quartz mining are still unknown, although the consul reports seeing very rich samples from Uariraa. He quotes local newspaper reports to how that one American company witlj i 20-stnmp mill, in ten days, crushed 450 tons'-of mixed ore, cletiriug up 7GC ounces of gold. Promising properties have lately been bought up by English capitalists and large developments in the gold industry are expected in spite of the unsettled state of the Venezuela Boundary question and the fact that all the mines the. consul refers to are located in the disputed territory.

A'Times special from Washington Bays: Con tracts will be let in a few days for more tlian $100,000 'worth of naval supplies to be delivered at the Brooklyn navy yard. . These supplies include all imaginable articles which are necessary to equip tlifi vessels about to go into commission, probably the Brooklyn, Wilmington, Helena, and Nashville. Some of the material is also intended for the Dolphin. Bids have been received from over 100 firms for' supplying this material. Among the -articles are : 10,000 jackknives, whichiwill : be. sold to the sailors at the con-tract price, which is 40 cents. Ordinarily the sort of jack : kn ife which the specifications call for 'would cost one dollar at least. The navy will also purchase'3,000 neckerchiefs at 99 cent* each.: T;hese,are of 1 '-black-silk and are much' affected by the blue Jackets. Another important item. Js 15,000 yards of trouser cloth, which will probably go to a Conshohocken (Pa.) firm. A quantity of silver boatswain calls will also be purchased. These useful and noisy reminders of the old' navy cost $2.35 each., This is one of the largest purchases ever made at one. t.iroe. by Paymaster Gen. Stewart, who makes the contract. WILLED A FORTUNE. Colored Attendnnti Upon tho. Late SErf* i Hlckn-Lorrt Remembered. Thompson street social circles were thrown into a furore of excitement the other afternoon when the contents of the lost will and testament of Mrs. Annette Wilhelmina Wilkins Hicks-Lord were made public. There was good cause for the excitement. Bythe terms of the will Miss Maria Miller is made the inost eligible party in metropolitan col- bred society. She is to receive the eum ! of $100 a, week, or 55,200 a year, so long us she shall live, and she -is only 45 years of age; moreover, she is single'. - Less _fortunate, but still tc be envied, is Thomas Dyer, a eoloi'ec ir.an, wto Sy the terms of the 1 will is to receive the sum of $25 a week so long as be Khali live, without the.sweat of brow or the toil of hand. Maria Miller—tall,' dark and undeniably comely—entered the employ of Mrs. Hicks-Lord at the age of 15 and for 30 years acted in the capacity of maid for that charming but eccentric woman. Dyer was 19 wihen he became Mrs, Hiclcs-Lord's butler, and remained in her service 22 years. Both were faithful, aad people who knew the testatrix In life sa.y these servants deserve the good fortune.' CONSUELO'S BIRTHDAY. Celebrated wttli Great Umrnllloeoc* at Bloobclm. The duchess of Marlborough recently celebrated her twentieth birthday at Blenheim palace, and the festivities lasted three days. At the garden party on the first day when jnenfbers of tho country families and neighboring gentry were the guests, the duchess received her 'friends in a gown of dove gray silk, the bodice and skirt being made separately, and the collar and cincture or girdle being of shot rose uilk. A bunch of yellow dairies adorned her belt, and her large, black hat was trimmed with a profusion of pink rosea. The second day was devoted entirely to the entertainment of the school chil- r1r»» Riua«lJlMJiiiQr...thfl DTEAt estate. It is said that the duchess was most h'appjr in making others happy, and.sfie had! ordered all manner of amusements for the children, such as steam horses^ swings and out-door games of every]' kind, besides having sweets • and re-. freshments served from a guyly colored marquee. The duchess seems to delight In belnff, Lady Bountiful to her husband's people, and had a smile and a pleasant' word for each guest, whetherof high or; low degree. On the third day there- was a noon-to-night treat for the people of the small tenantry und for the laboring folk. On the three days th» gardens, the grounds, conservatories End palace were open to the throng o£ visitors. An orchestra upon the lawn, discoursed sweet music, and in the, great library one concert of vocal and : instrumental music followed another in rapid succession. A magnificent organ of superb tone and great size J» built- in'the library and 'has panel* of deep relief wood carving. The re-« freshments each day were served uponj the lawn. ^ Bristol has *he oldest patent theater,: in England outside of London in the Theater Royal in King street, opened by David Garrick in 1706.
