T1H12 PTJROHAISING POWEK. .The Jounwiadimlrts tteit the purchasing power of gold hats Increased 75 per cent, in twenty years.—Fluw-os. TJie Journal does not "admit" any sucli thing. On the coutroiry it shows tilwut the puwhaaiog power of gold has decreased im twenty years. If , the Pharos is honest 1t will show *hat tlie facts In the above, statement of increase 1$ •true. If it fs d-isuonest it will not do so, but will attempt to distort and juggle sonic comparison of prices. Is at honest or dishonest by confession? Will dt 'attempt to prove the facts or to juggle, distort and pervert? It (has -made die statement that tibe pur-, chasing power of gold tons increased 75 per cent, in twenty years. This Is true or it Is not true. The Phuiros Is glyen the oi>poi-tundty to prove its truthlfnl- ness a-n-d hones-ty in tihiis wager. Is It so, -or not so, that the pUTChiasiu}; power of gold has increased? It Is-uot true, of course. Tlie Pharos knows that it is mat true. It dare.aoMnaxe the assertion tlikit It is true. Every old-time Democrat Is asked to base his vote on •tih'ls Issue, to vote for McKtoley M the P1W.TOS dodges the tesue. Isn't thia a fair thing to do.? Has the purcliiasing power of gold increased over n-nd above the question of supply and dem&nd t or has it not? T-hat Isthe praposltfon the Piliaras raise? and The Journal meets It squarely. Now let the Pharos prove Its assertion that the proposition' is h'uc, or let It attemirt Its usual dodging. But supposing the sta-tement wore •true. Tlie farmer -gets gcJifl or Its equivalent for Jils products; tlie wage- worker gets gold, or Its equivalent for his wages. Why Should they complain at an increase in the pwrebasinig power of the money they recerve? Money has readly changed but Httle, if at all. The law of supply and demand has changed the prices of some products. No change In the monetary system will change this. . • ' IT IS NOT AT ALL BROS ABLE TBAfl 1 THE NEXT.

From, those who hare recently returned from abroad there has been some decided comment concerning- the manner in -widen they have been treated by tho Sfarlboroughs. When the young- duchess was married last year many wealthy and fashionable friends sent her handsome presents, and others also entertained her and her fiance. Society always expects some quid pro quo, and the traveling friends of the young duchess looked for a islig-ht acknowledgment of their politeness to her. But the duke is averse to Americans, aeaa, wnuc tne entire I jTlreaay aeaa, wnuc tne entire mimcer^ TO FORTIFY SAN DIEGO, taken out previously on the Danish ni- n ni-»r.V.irk TT^-nt-n li oiTA l\rtnTl /tJl.TFl^M. f\TL Disappearing Ouns and Mortar Bat- teriea Will Defond tho Harbor. steamship Horsa have been carried off by what is known as John Bull fever.

During his short stay in ttiis country the young duke did not interest himself in the Elijah-test in either Sew York or Newport society. He never paid dinner calls, nor, in fact, <lid he return any civilities shown him. Miss Virginia Fair has been one of the very few to whom the Marlbordughs have shown ai^y attention in London. Hon. Ivor Guest was very much taken with her, and she was asked for a week at Blenheim. So far even the Oliver Belmori'ts do not seem to have enjoyed much of the Churchill hospitality. But all this may possibly co-me in time. At present the young duke is decidedly anti-American, and he has removed his dudiess to a new world and has surrounded her with new people. HUNTERS BAG MANY RATTLERS. Eioltlnc Sport Enlaced la by .Ernwt lUC'ier and Thomu 1'errln. Ernest Rign-ey, a noted Pike county (Pa.) hunter, and Thomas Perrin, of the banking house of A. Iselin ci Co., 3C Wall street, started the other day to hunt small game in the woods in the vicinity of Log Tavern pond, four miles back of Milford, N. Y. Aa they had poor Kick Mr. Eigney proposed to Mr. Perrin they spend an hour or so at midday in a rattlesnake den near the.pond and he would show him such sport as he had never enjoyed before. The latter assented rind they made their way through the woods to the snake don, where on ledges of rock numerous' rattlers lay coiled, taking a sun bath. The snakes were of all si/cs and included both the brown and yellow varieties. The presence of the black snakes was made known to Mr. Eigney in an unexpected manner. A hugt fellow was coiled about a tree 'and Mr. Eigney fairly ran. against it before he saw it. The hunter stepped back, raised his gun a-nd blew the snake's head oil. It measured between seven and eight feet. Both the sportsmen next opened fire on ev.ery snake I'n sight and the crack of rifles resounded for an hour. In that brief space- of time they killed 12 rattlers and two black snakes. Three of the rattlers were skinned and Mr. Perrin, who-returned to the city the next day, took them with him and will exhibit them with the rat- ties to his friends. The- house of commons,when it passes reeolutions or articles of impeachment, does so as a grand jury or inquest^of tho whole nation. The house of peers cannot try a commoner for a capital of- iense,,but a peer can be tried-by hta peers or equals according to magn» oharta, whether for misdemeanor or nnv higher f.riTr>" ' jjne savers are now experimenting with a sheet-iron kite, designed to enable distressed ships to communicate with the shore. . work of surveying preliminary to tbe placing of guns has already begun. In, an interview, Maj. Davis stated that four ten-inch guns on disappearing carriages will be placed on Ballast Point, immediately Jnside the harbor, under J the l^row of Point Loma. There will I be 10 12-inch mortar batteries placed on 1 Sand Pit, one and one-half miles south of Hotel Del Coronado, and possibly mortar batteries on North island and, Point Luma. Two of the four •Wn-inch guns will be placed in positioji;JHjmedi- ately and the work of placing the others will be prosecuted with dilig*bee. As the government owns a reservation of two acres at the extremity of Point Loma, the most commandiuff position on the coast for miles northward from the Mexican line, it is considered very- probable that the most importantforti- iications will be erected thero,'dhhcrugh upon this point Maj. Davis refuses to speak. Xovv that the government is getting big guns for coast defenses, tfc« question of how to handle them. «p as to get the best results is receiving -the earnest attention, of the army .authori-. ties. To train the artillery to the same degree of expertnesa with large guns as the infantry or cavalry attain with the rifle is now the aim of thfc war department. " . In this connection an important order haa just been Issued from anay headquarters. It prescribed the.method of conducting the technical induction of artillery troops and new regulations for target practice and artillery competitions. The practice with the wg 1 (runs will be continued under th* «(fl rules until the beginning of next year. The general scope of the Tattlf regulations contemplates competition first between men of each battery, tben between the men who have attained the best averages in their respctife batteries, and finally a general competition in which men selected from regiments will take part.. Eventually it * hoped that, the expert' shots with th* heavy guns in the army will be brought into competition with the gunnem of the navy. The quarterly reports of target prac- tise with bug guns from the 'various ships show a marked improvement over the work of lost year. Lieut.

Now Keeping Chlo»»o> Cnitom-Uouie Official* Bmjr. "Fresh eggs from China" is a conspicuous sign posted in the windows of Chinese stores and restaurants on Clark street, Chicago. But the announcement is in Chinese characters: The eggs are a delicacy that come, to Chicago crery fall from China. The examiners* room in the custom house has for the past two weeks, been strewn'with the square paper-covered boxes, -Tvmpped with bamboo splits, which hold the consignments of fruits, vegetables and groceries for the Chinese of Chicago and the central west. Not the least among- tlie things imported nre the duck eggs. At least 30,000 of them have passed through the custom house the past two- weeks. Each eg-g is wrapped in a mass of black mud, that retains its putty-like consistency for months, even when exposed to the air. They come In boxes holding 25 Chinese dozen—that is, ten. Everything- that conies from China la purchased by tens. The eggs thus Jcecp absolutely fresh. Peeling the mud coating from them, the faint blue tint of the shell is disclosed. The only difference between the eggs of an American duck and a Chinese fowl, and an; unfailing mark that keeps tlie dealer! from practicing a deception, is that the yolk, .instead of being yellow, has the color of an American beanty rose..
