A CONVENTION CALL
National Eepolican Leagne to Meet in
; - Denver in Juns.
THE RATIO OF REPRESENTATION
Each State Will Have Ten Delegates at
Large in Addition to Four From
Each Congressional District.
Chicago, March 11. The official call
for the annual convention of the Nation
al Republican League will be issued
from the national headquarters in this
city to-morrow. The convention will be
held at Denver, June 20, and will con
tinue several days. The ratio of repre
sentation gives each state practically 10
delegates at large, in addition to four
from each congressional district. The
total representation will exceed 2,000
delegates. The call reads in part as fol
"Democratic control and sectional rale
are again complete in the national gov-
. ernment, and starvation for labor and
rain for capital prevail as the result of
the policies and influences tht domi
nate the democratic party. ' The hallu
cinations of 1892 are over. Facts have
upset theories, and the people now turn
instinctively to the party that saved the
nation in the previous hoar of peril, and
demonstrated its masterly ability in giv
ing the United States SO years of pros
perity unparalleled in the history of na
tions. Again it becomes the -mission
and duty of the grand old party to meet
the national emergency with the high
est patriotism. The party deplores the
. necessity, bat rises to the occasion. The '
. straggle for liberty, progress, fair wages
and all that America promises did not
end with the- defeat of 1892. The fight
must and will go on. To this end the
national, committee of the league cor-:
dially invites all patriotic citizens who
ace in sympathy with the policies and
aspirations of ' tbe republican party to
join the league clubs and thus partici
pate in the national league convention

Songs That Were Sungr When THIS Coun
try . Was Young.
It is very interesting1 to trace the
origin of some of the good old tunes
with which we are. familiar. There
have been many controversies as to
"Old Hundred" has been variously
ascribed to Dr. Martin Luther, Dr.
John Dowland and William Franckl
Dr. Lowell Mason wrote ouite a trea
tise on the old tune, saying emphatic
ally that it was written by Guillaum
(William) Franck (1543.) But later
musical historians say it was com
posed by Louis Bourgeois, of France,
The old tune, "God Save the King,"
or "America," so universally sung to
"My Country, 'Tis of Thee," was com
posed by Dr. John Bull (1563-1028),
music teacher to Queen Elizabeth,'
The tune of " Yankee Doodle" has
had seven or eight treatises written
upon it in the last thirty years, ascribing-
it to various dates and origins,
even back to the Netherlands and the
days of Cromwell and the Charleses.
Dr. George Grove, of London, Eng.,
investigated thoroughly the various
musical libraries and the British muse
um in England, rinding no' trace of it
But "Yankee Doodle" has an origin
and has a history. It was written by
Dr. Richard Schuchburgh (whose com
mission dates 1737), in the French" and
Indian war of 1775 under Gen. Jeffrey
-Amherst, and was intended as a "take
off" on the "rag, tag and bobtail" re
cruits of the colonies that came into
The first words: "Father and I went
down to camp," were in . the Boston
Journal, 1768, and the first record of
the tune is in Arnold's "Two to One,"
1784; so that "Yankee Doodle," al
though written by a British surgeon,
is really American.
The tune "Star . Spangled Banner"
is an adaptation of "Anacreon in
Heaven," composed by Dr. Samuel
Arnold, (1783-1802) of England, 1770."
"Hail Columbia," or the 'President's
March," was by Prof. Phylas, of Phil
"Portuguese Hymn," or "Adeste
Fideles," is ascribed by English mu
sicians to John Reading, who died in
1764. But Herbert P. Main, of New
York, a musical antiquarian, says the
tune cannot be found as in existence
lyic-nuut, to iiu. ne says it was com-.
posed and written by Marcantonio
jSimoe (1702-1830). He wrote under the
assumed name of "Portogallo."
Brain Takes a Ride.
The engineer on a western New York
train picked up a queer passenger re
cently. One evening he saw something
come from the 'bushes atone side of
the railroad, step upon the track and
stand still between the rails. At first
he thought it was a man, but when the
rays of the headlight fell on the object
he saw that it was a bear. The train
was moving very fast and the engineer
blew the whistle loudly, but the bear
held his place calmly until almost run
down and then stepped off:.' This rash
bear must have enjoyed its experience,
for three times during ' the following
week it repeated the performance.
But when it came out for the fifth time
it had (frown careless and the cow
catcher knocked it up in the air. Then
the train was stopped and the train
men searched for the bear. But bruin
had crawled away somehow' into a
laurel swamp and is there yet, proba
bly, but whether dead or alive no one
knows. . . -

CHINA LOSING GROUND.
European Nations Are Rapidly Absorbing
Vast and populous as China is, the
eperience of the present - century
shows that she is weak for aggressive
purposes. She has not the hold on ter
ritory adjacent , to her borders which
she could claim a hundred years ago.
European nations are pressing - on her.
both on the south and on the north.
She has been forced to cede a portion
of her territory to England, and she
has been compelled to avail herself of
the help of Englishmen, both for civil
administration and for military com
All these things, savs the Edinburgh
Review, show that an expansion of the
Chinese race does not necessarily in
volve an extension of Chinese domin
ion. On the contrary, they tend to
prove that it is the order introduced by
European administration which leads
to the multiplication of these industri
ous people; and there is, therefore, at
least as much ground for saying that,
though Borneo, . Sumatra and New
Guinea and the great, islands of the
Eastern Archipelago may be ultimately
peopled by yellow races,' they will be
governed by the white races, as for
believing that a new Chinese . empire
is in process of formation; a Chinese
India may, in other words, be devel
oped in these great and fertile islands.
