Special to The Chbokccm.) . -r-
The Dalles, Sept. 7. I have taken a
very great interest . in . the question of
good roads, how to mate and maintain
them : also in the convictlabor question.
It seems to me tliat the quickest way to
settle toth - of these most important
questions would be.for each state to do
away.with the present system of con
tracting convict labor .and put tho con
victs to work on the' public highway.
Then would come an era of good road
m'akinsrrTt wonld ' settle-rtrikea and
labor troubles to a certain extent, for the j
convicts would not come into -competi
tion with, tradesmen, r. mechanics and
day laborers. ' .8. B. R.
, Don't Want free Trade. -Dufcr,
Sept. 5. I am am V0 years old
and was in business during the time the
democrats had a tariff for revenue only.
Owing to the constant drain . of gold to
pay. the balance ot trnae against tins
country times were excessively hard and
I lost heavily and paid as high as 12 per
cent to get gold to run my business.
The state banks and stock-security banks
supplied the currency, but if you got a
bill of it you did not know one day
whether it would be good the next. The
democratic platform., declares for free
trade. Mr. Cleveland said in his speech
of acceptance that protection was all
wrong. Now how. is Gen. Black or any
other candidate going to alter the plat
form? They can'tdo it. The republican
platform says the manufacturer is en
titled . to . the difference in . wages in
foreign countries, and it is so. .' M. J . li.

The Dalles, Sept. 7. At a time like
this, when . cholera- threatens to invade
our land, will, you please publish the
following preventive, aDd . if - only one
case maj thereby be prevented, it will
repay alt. the trouble. Marseilles (or
thieves vinegar, as it is called) is pro
nounced infallible as a preventive of
cholera. It was invented during a sea
son; of pestilence, by , four thieves, who
spent their time plundering the dying
and the dead, with no fear of infection,
thei vinegar with which' they supplied
themselves being ft successful disinfect
ant. Their recipe, which is in use to
day, is as follows:' Dried tops of large
and small wormwood,- roBemary, sage,
mint, roe, lavender flowers, two ounces
of each ; calamus root, cinnamon,
cloves, nutmeg, garlic, one and one

Chicago, Sept 7. With all the fuss
and feathers that were painfully in evi
dence during the last two years, both
political parties begin the campaign of
1892 in Chicago practically, without
organization. The. situation is .better
explained by the statement of Ex-Sena
tor Bloom-ot. Auburn Park. He says
"the republicans have held the city hall
and dispensed the city patronage for a
year and a half, and yet that party is
not only without organization but is
practically split in twain by factions
contending for supremacy within the
party. In the democratic' camp the
Harrimon and antt-Harrimon factions
have been Bleeping on their arms, but
ready to fly at each other's throats at
the first, note of war. Nothing, how
ever, has been done toward preparing to
battle with the common enemy the
republicans. At the. opening of -the
'campaiga there was not a democratic
organization in Cook county for the
purpose of aiding the party at the gen
eral election.' The fact is that politics,
such as we have had for the last year
and - a half in this city, baa not been
jjartiean politics, but- mere factional
contentions. The city -hall patronage
has been used not to strengthen the
grand old party, but to strengthen the
Gilbert-Hertz-Washburne machine a;
gainst the other factions of the party.
The patronage has been- dispensed with
a .view to controlling the primary elec
tions, and not for the DUrnose of carry
ing general elections. Democratic punce ; concentrated acetic acid,, two

plans, such as they are, have been; laid
preparatory to a resumption of the
wearisome Harrimon quarrel: - Now
that the time has come for active work

election in November, nothing is ready
and no one appears to know what to do."
The republican ' state central commit
tee will hold apnieeting at the Grand
Pacific hotel today. One of the princi
pal questions to be considered will be
the disposition. '"of speakers. It is in
tended to ' take up the" congressional
districts separately and apportion the
orators-assigned; by the national com
mittee to Illinois for the campaign-.
The other questions to rome before the
state committee's meeting were consid
ered by the executive officers last even
ing. Republicans are beginning, to
plume themselves in the idea that they
are certain to carry the lower house of
the legislature, ana whenever tncre is
a possibility of , saving a. member, the

Sir Charles Fox, a . character whom
Thackery wonld have delighted- to por

usual stature and excessive thinness
would have made him noticeable in any
circumstances, and these physical ec
centricities were accentuated by his sui-
srular 'attire. lie wore invariably a
dress coat of antique cut, gray trousers,
open buff waistcoat, high Gladstonian
collar and an immense neckcloth.' His

ago. Sir Charles was a constant peram

her mayor has distinguished himself by
opening the arena with a formal speech
by announcing at the Olympic club last
night that a contest for the light-weight
championship of . the world wa's about -to
take place. Ho received a ronsing .
cheer. .-. As the ex-mayor finished his :
brief speech Professor John Duffy, , the .
official referee, crawled through the
padded ropes. . s. The pugilists Mc- .
Aulifle and Myer soon appeared, wear
ing only trunks, shoes . and stockings.
They, shook hands at 9 :15 and returned
to their corners.. At 9 :2b , time was
called. Fifteen rounds were fought,
when Myer went down for the last time. -
He tried to get up, but .his strength was . :
gone, and he fell on the lower, rope- and '.
then on tho floor. The crowd gave a
great yell as the. referee gave tlie de-.'
cision, and Mac stood ready to shake
Myer's hand. Myer's seconds had to
lift him to his feet und take him to his
corner. - Mac ran over to him and
grasped the defeated man's hand. Then
the. happy victor shook hands with
everybody. Afterthe battle, Dick Roche .
challenged "any! man---in the world to
fight Mack at 138 pounds, "to weigh at
the ring side, for $1,000 a side, ami the
best purse any club can hang up. :
Ia regard to the coming fight, between
Corbett and Sullivan tonight, the Cor
bett men claim that in previous fights
Sullivan has worn his trunks high up,
and that beneath he had worn bandages
to protect his stomach. Phil Casey says
fighters frequently- wear : a : pine pitch
plaster over the abdomen to stay them
during the contests Frank Moran, who
has a share in the Sullivan stakes, was
questioned as to the Sullivan view of the
Corbett claim that the champion must
dress no higher than the navel iu this -
fight. "We have nothing to sa3- in the
matter," quoth Morari.. "Sullivan will
go .into the , ring . ready to fight. If
there is any question as to the methods.
complaint must be made to the- Olym- .
pio Club officers, who will act as thev
deem right. We havo no controversy
wi tlx the Uorbett crowd."
