The planet Mars is considered by
those best qualified to know, or at luast
speculate noon its conditious, has a
climate, physical changes and chemical
elements very like those of this earth.
If such be the case, and it appears to be
the prevailing opinion of astronomers
that it is, it is reasonable to suppose
that Mara has a people similar to oar
own with languages and governments,
and institutions not unlike oar own.
England's Gain by Our Free-Trade.
In ISM we imported from Europe
under the McKinlej tariff, f317,511,4
worth of poods. In 1S05 we imported
431,514,021, a gain to Europe and a less
to the United States of 1114,002,351.
The more we import from Europe the
less we produce at home. The more we
produce at home, the mere we provide
employment for men and women in the
United States. One hundred and four
teen million a year is not much to be
sore, bat the making of that amoant of
goods would have furnished employment
for a considerable number of people itho
were in enforced idleness for most of
the time last jear.
For nearly four years hardly a dy has
passed without a feeling of dis'rust con
sequent upon the management and sla-

No alarm was felt about disturbing the

President Cleveland's Chauvinism dur

SCENES IT 1 1111
The Free Silverites in the
Chicago, July S. Chairman Dauiel
put a motion that the convention take a
livomiuute recess, aud bo addressed by
Governor Hogg, of Testis. The motion
Tho former Lone Star governor, known
to the world at largo on account of his
fight against the railroads in his state,
is tho biggeet man in the convention
His weight is not less than 300 pounds,
and be stands some inches above &ix
feet. He proceeded with a voice like
tho bass of a church organ to hurl
thunder bolts against gold and republi
canism. Ho began by congratulating
the convention on the proud opportunity
before it. The tactics ot tho democrats
a not bolting, he declared, should pre
vail in accordance with tho time-
honored democratic doctrine of majority
rule. He spoke of the deliverance of
the liberties of the." people from the yoko
of republican rule. The party, he said,
had made a mistake four years ago
which would not be repeated. If the
republican party was returned to
power it foreboded a nation of miuions
and millionaires. If (he democrats
would stand .together that party could
be forever laid out on .the hillside of
despair. He denounced the growing
tendency toward the centralization of
government, which, he said, must event
ually mean the oppression of the people
bv bavonet and destruction of their
Texas' ex-governor's attack on the re
publican platform met with hearty sym
pathy from the audience. Some of .the
cold men. however, showed openly that
they were opposed to some of his ex
treme expressions. When ex-Governor
Hogg finished, Senator White assumed
the gavel temporarily while the crowd
cried for Hill, Blackburn, Altgeld and
others. Delegate Money of Mississippi
moved that Senator Blackburn be re
quested to address the convention, and
the crowd yelled itself hoarse in ap
AVith a proud step the gallant Ken
luctian mounted tne stage, tiis appear
ance set the convention wild. He is one
of the silver idols, and it was apparent
s soan as his fervid oratory was launched
that he had the pit and gallery with him
The democratic party he said, was in
convention to correct the evils of bad
government in splendid style. State af
ter state bad fallen in line, and the con
vention was instructed overwhelmingly
by the pi, ty and people. The Kentuck
ian's speech was like a tierce cavalry
charge. It swept along with vollev after
volley of silver shot, and its points were
followed by volley after volley of wild
shrieks of applause and approval. A
territSc yell went up when he said
Let us construct a platform that neither
umau nor devilish ingenuity can sub
mit to bat one construction." There
waa another yell when he exhorted the
convention to tell the country that "we
mean to put silver back where it was in
1S73." Another was when he de
nounced "the issue of bonds in time of
profound peace, and another wilder
than all when he shouted, "Christ with
the lash drove from the temple a better
set of men than these who for 0 years
have shaped the financial policv of this
Be temperate, be c aservative," said
he. "but do not forget to gather the
spienuia iruits ut victory you nave so
splendidly won. You have captured
the skirmish line but the inner citadel
stilt stands. Do what you were sent here
to do, but whether you favor the gold
standard or the doable standard, let
every one remember that he is a demc-
ciat still. I pin my faith to the princi

piea ano loyalty oi my party, a new
day is dawning," he concladed, "whose
effulgence marks the return of the de
mocracy to power. I beg of yougentle
men, make a platform that will tell the
truth and then rally as one man to vin
dicate its utterances."
During Blackburn's speech the 15,000
people in the hall were aroused to a high
pitch of enthusiasm, and as be closed
they went wild. For two minutes they
shouted their approval.
Loud calls for Bryan were then heard
zad when the chairman inquirtd if
Bryan was in the hall, the delegates and
spectators jumped to their feet and
wavea ineir nanusercnieis. ine young
orator from Nebraska could not be found.
A chorus of demands for Hill was raised
again, loader than ever. While the tu
mult was at its height Delegate A. W.
Hope of Illinois pushed down to the
steps of the platform, and with out
stretched arm, pointed toward Senator
White, clamoring for recognition. Fin
ally the chairman saw him and heard
the cry, "I move that Governor Altgeld,
of Illinois, address tho convention."
Although no one 20 feet away could
catch the purport of the demand, White
beat with the gravel until the conven
tion consented to subside a trifle, and
then announced that Governor Altgeld
was called for. Tho Illinois delegates
led an enthusiastic cheer, which was
taken up by the other delegations and
chorused by tho galleriee. Many
mounted chairs and faced toward Illi
nois. The governor, a plain-faced man,
with a brick beard, closely cut and close
cropped black hair and jet-black eyes
that enapped and gleamed liko sparks,
stood in the aisle with uplifted arm, ap-
pealing lor attention, l ew could see

Thoro camo an end to tho uproar at
last and Altgeld made his voice heard
by saying: "Onbohalfof the stato of
Illinois I suggest that this convention
givo D. B. Hill, of Now York, an oppor
tunity to address it."
This stroke brought down another
shower of domands for "Hill, Hill,
Hill." Tne chairman said : "Tho dis
tinguished gentlemau from New York,
who has been ctlled for so often, is not
here." Still tho convention domanded
'Hill" until Senator White was driven
to cry, " Will you insist on having men
who aro not hero?"
Then tho cry waa turned to "Russell,"
by the Eastern men. Tho young Massa
chusetts governor sat impressively in his
chair and his friends gave him up.
Finally ex-Governor Overmayer of Kan
sas was brought to the platform and ap
peased the appetite of the crowd for sov-
eral minutes, as he spoke "for the do!-
ar of our daddies."
For another fivo minutes tho band
held them in check with stirring music
ALTOKLl) TO THE KltOXT.
Then the cries for Altgold were re
newed and at last with evident reluc
atice tho Illinois governor was urge! for
ward to tho stage. Great curiosity ex
isted to Ece him. Some delegates
crowded to the front of the stage, not be
cause his voice was weak, as his clear
tones reached oat to the farthermost
imits ot the hall, but to get a closer
view of the man. With great delibera
tion, he opened with a statement that
he had not come hero to make a speech,
but to assist in the nomination of the
next president of the United States and
a formal declaration of principles that
would again offer hoe to the party
of the people. This opening sentiment
warmed up the audience and the almost
haggard face of the Illinois governor
grsw flashed, his gestures came quick
and vehement, and before he proceeded
far the convention waa swayed as b the
cyclone of his oratory.

and children were looking to this con

blood, and sweat of millions was being
doubled by shrinkage in the standard of
values. Then he paused and flinging
his arms out before him, asked, "Will
you let them continue it?"
No, no, never,'' came in thundering
chorus from 15,000 throats.
