The veto o( tho Seigniorage bill is not important In 1 self but in what it implies President Cleveland has placed himself on record against inflation and the veto Indicates that there will be no loftisluilon of that character enacted. This IB important beuauae whether the "goid bugb" are rifcht or wrong In their position they control the credit of the nation and with that credit dishonored new die aster would be added to the present wreck. The coinage of silver should be brought about but on a sound basis BO that tho parity of the two metals will be maintained and the national credit preserved at homo and abroad. The President's act will not meet the approval of his party. For twenty five years democracy has been gathering up the opponants of every policy of the government and now that powerhas been given there will be deep disappointments. It Is not possible to satisfy all the diverse elements and the country has about come to the conclusion that it ig not possible to satisfy very many of them without a se.crs.Bce ot national credit find national prosperity. Tho President of course has driven to the Populists another large block o/ his party and the work of disintegration Is rapidly going on. It was not in the nature of things that an organized antagonism would develop into a creative union and the party will seek that condition which President Cleveland himself so aptly defined as "inoccuoue desue. tude."

SsBpro JT Is & striking fact that In the present campaign the democratic members Of the couDcil who voted for the Pharos are left without any orffan to defend them. On the other hand they are attacked by the C Pharos and can not even get a truthful statement of the facts from it. The Pharos has always defended democratic trickery and Its attitude can not be attributed to a desire for reform. It is apparent that its soleQpurpose is to be revenged tor the. votes against the gas company. Take the police expenditure as an illustration. Tho increaeo was made by a democratic metropolitan police board, appointed by a democratic governor. The Council had no will in the matter yet the Pharos parades this increase ns an evidence Of the extravagance ol the Council.

[Special i:uiio iMont.) Loner,] Four hundred feet in mid air! A rushing mountain torrent hedged hi by giant bowlders below—grand old pine-cltu! Kockiea rising on every hand —the ouly tie literally binding UK to earth being 1 the slender but strong cable of woven steel wire spanning 1 from cliff to cliff the gorge below, »nd on which our car is strung like a black bead on a silver string 1 . How vividly the scene comes back over the hail dozen months intervening-! Ag-ain one feels the electric tin-ills flushing their telegrams over one's anatomy as the cor launches swiftly out from the cliff side. It halts midway in its journey at the request of one of the passengers whose hair seems slowly lifting 1 her hat, pins and all, from her dizzy head, but whose trembling fingers determinedly click the button on the black box in her lap. Jt is enrty Mimmerin Montana. One would scarcely know it in smoky Hutte lying 1 at length upon the mountain slope, liku a Titan dreamer,pulling from giant pipes tho clouds of smoke that fill the viillcy below as with <lon.sc fogs •—except tor the absence of snow from tliu Hitter Root puuks thirty miles distant. For the hills near town, as we drove swiftly through thorn early this morn- inpr. were bure ivnd lirowii. and tho pines and tlrs on the westward side of the main range of the Kockies—the Great Divide—three miles cast were all don-d, as if stricken with a Jupitcrian lightning flush thut in ono breath slew miles of forest. Hut it is the work of the deadly sulphur smoke which the hundreds of smelters helch forth like pneumatic tube connections with the realm of his Satanic majesty. But here ut the new waterworks in process of erection, fifteen miles away to the southward, summer is in full sway—the grass is fresh and green, the magpies flirt their lilack-and-white wings over tho sage-brush, and the robin is as deliciously jubilant as a boy let out of school. The hills and slopes have all stepped from the dressing- room of winter onto the brilliantly- lighted stage of spring.onch in the most gorgeous dress, silver-banded with streams, furbelowed with willow and where confronting "empire in its westward way." like lions in the path, must needs bo skillful to resist tho mighty force of the wallcd-in water Over yonder, ahead of it, 'to the right, the men are .scattering up the slope, removing every stone and tree in order to make a rock-bod 1 for the reservoir. The earth where the.y'have passed looks as if a great meteor had plowed up the ground for many acres. While we wc.ro inspecting the powerhouse and learning these interesting facts we looked across to the opposite cliff and saw a black object rise from its wunmit and bear down upon ns like a great eaplo floating from her eyrie, AK it drew nearer we went out to-raeet it—it was the car—a rude plat- Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U.

Below, the men at work resemble black mice hurrying to and fro, while the camp, with its white tents gleaming in the sun, looks like a field on a Hummer's day, dappled with spider webs all misty and shining with dew. The camera turns its big', round eye upon the wildly beautiful scene, gives a click an of astonishment, and records its impressions on that wonderful inner retina, as its owner is trying less effectually to do. Then the ear moves on to the opposite cliff whure the camera has more sightseeing to do; the car returns to the middle of the cable, where it is slowly lowered to earth, and the last stage of the strange aerial journey ;':; done.

Probably the best thing that ever written on the interesting- question of what women like in men is summed up in the idea that women like a man who can be strong as a lion when trouble comes and yet if one is nervous and tired can button up 3 shoe with an amount of consideration that is a mental and physical bracer-up. They like a man who likes them, who doesn't scorn their opinions, who believes in their pood taste, who has con- lidemift in thorn, and wit enough to realize that when one of the fairer sex is slifrhlly stubborn persuasion is more powerful tlinn all the arguments in the world. —Mrs. Jennie Atchley. of Ueeville, Bee county, Tex,, is the most extensive breeder of queen "ones in the world.

' Mr. 'Hughes, the kindly engineer at the head of the pang 1 of workmen, who pltt'nned the enterprise, has received us very 'courteously and done the hon,or» of the camp. Wo began explorations with the log cabin blacksmith shop, where hammering 1 away at his forjre stood the smith— a brawny Saxon, who took great care not to come out into the sunlight, fearing, Hughes nald, "t 1 black .box— Aa ben tak meh pectur mance," We clambered up the rocky natural stairway of piled-up bowlders, to the great derrick for hoisting 1 stone. The towers weru braced and anchored in solid rock— the holes for the iron hooks being 1 bored out with a diamond drill; and each of us has secured ns » cabinet curio one of the round plugs of granite rock over an inch in diameter, "chewed out" of these future holes by the sharp, hydraulic-descending- teeth of tho drill. Further up u small ravine we noted with surprise the great quantities of wood brought from the mountain above, required for camp use, engine and other purposes. 1 Wu watched the great euffinc jn tho power-house, by which the car and cable line is run across to tho other mountain, where rock is blasted out for the great dam now being 1 bnilt. This dam is peculiarly situated, being 1 sot in v between two close-approaching mountains whose granite sides form the abutments to the solid wall of ma- .sonry rising rapidly under the labors of the skilled workmen below us. This wall will close the passage for three mountain streams which here converge' into one, 'and which, being perpetually supplied ^frpm the melting snows of the peaks,, will furnish, though at groat expense, a never-fail; ing (mpfcly of wate/ to the smoking city fifteen tortuous aMles away. .It i& being bvdit solid and strong onder its keen and skilled supervisor — civil engineers who overcome the drnnkenlj'. then slowly sank e;irtli- ward. "What is wron^' 1 ? Why don't they come on?" we questioned, iti a breath, expecting every second to see the cable snap and hear a fuint but sickening 1 crash on the rocks below, closing our eyes meanwhile to ishut out the awful sight. But we open them immediately on hearinfr our guide's calm answer: ".Wait and you will see." Leaning over the dizzy edge of the clirt we see the car just touching: the ground, and the men busily falling to with the evident intention of removing 1 the load of rocks. Then a sudden yet daring inspiration comes to the "kodalter"—"Oh! couldn't we gf> over on it, too, the next load, and stop in the middle to snap that grand view up the gulch?" "Would you dare?" says her companion, in tones a small bit horror-stricken. Fancying a siig-ht ting'e of incredulity in the "you," she replies with a nonchalance she does not feel; "Of course. Why not? I've been under Lake Mich—" "But a woman has never been across here." interrupts Mr. Hughes. "Though many have driven out to sec tho place. And if vou start to fall no one can help you, for it would upset the car.

Though the men point out the clever devices on the cable for the safety o the car, which'retard its speed when by Its own impetus it wo'uld exceed the required velocity, it relieves but little the fearsome certainty that every ercak of the timbers' Is but preliminary to the final crash on the 'crue beneath.. and inaccurate copy of an important diplomatic paper. His superior, when it was laid upon the desk for signature, was very angry. "The government does not pa.y you," he exclaimed, "for doing- slovenly work! You must make a clean copy, without erasure or interlineation. Even a blacksmith could do better work!" was the parting shot, as the humiliated clerk disappeared at the' door, red in the face and trembling for the retention of, his position. The official was undoubtedly riffht. There was no excuse for careless, inattentive copying and botchwork in a state papei-.

She shuts her eyes which have been uncontrollably wide open and thinks of home away off in th*,> east, when the car halts with a jerk that nearly tumbles her overboard and sways like a ship at sea. ; But what a grand, if dizzy, panorama is spread iielow! To the south the snow-crowned jjgaks and a rushing Kurgoyne's campaign was planned in London. The object wa.s to strike a tremendous blow at the center of the confederacy. The J'ritish forces wore to take possession of the Mohawk and Hudson valleys by a concentric march from Lako Chumplain. Oswcgo and New York ou coiveryinjj lines, toward Albany. The ascent of the Hudson by Sir William Howe's sir my was essential to the success of a schon^o liy which Xcw, Kngland was to be cut oT. as by a weilg'e, from the southern colonies. Orders were sent or.t from London for the advance of Jiiirfjoyue'.s and St Leper's forces from Canada. At first Sir William Howe was merely informed of the plan and wa.s nrincd with discretionary powers; but finally a dispatch was drafted, positively ordering him to cooperate in the movement from New York. . A clerk made a hasty and very careless copy of the dispatch, which the minister, Lord George Hermaine, found (Treat difficulty in reading 1 . Like the state department official above referred to, he angrily reprimanded the culprit and ordered » fresh copy to be made without flaw or erasure. Being pressed for time and anxious for a holiday, Lord George posted offi to his country seat without waiting for the fresh copy. The military order was laboriously copied in the clerk's best hand, but when it was finished the minister was not there to sign it. It was pigeonholed and overlooked when he returned and was not sent to America until long afterward. Sir William Howe, being left with full discretion, allowed himself to be drawn into military operations against Washington's army near Philadelphia. Burgoyne's army was entrapped, cut off from retreat and forced to surrender at Saratoga. The fortunes of the revolutionary war turned upon the carelessness of an English copyist. Tho minister was more culpable than the clerlt. Evidently he thought so, for he suppressed the facts. The secret history of the dispatch has only recently been revealed and Sir \Viliam Howe's Jack of coope.ra lion been explained, but the firstblunderwas the copyist's and vory costly it proved, — Youth's Companion.
