A. LI. WILLIAMS &
A. it WILLIAM
VICTORIA TO RETIRE
This Report is Given Out in
HER HEALTH BADLY SHATTERED
Prince or Wales May Soon Occupy the
British Throna-Development of
London, July 31. The rumor that
Queen Victoria intends to retire in favor
of the Prince of Wales ia again current
today. It is added that court circles are
greatly troubled regarding the condition
of the queen's health. Such reports
have frequently appeared recently, only
to be semi-officially contradicted later,
but it seems that there may be some
actual foundation for the statements
made. It is added chat her majesty has
decided to spend her time in future at
Balmoral or Osborne, and will give the
Prince and Princess of Wales the use of
Buckingham palace and Windsor castle.
There is no doubt the queen seems to
feel greatly wrought up over her eyes
and bereavements. Her majesty is
quoted as having repeatedly remarked
during her stay at Buckingham palace
upon the occasion of the recent marriage
of Princess Maude of Wales to Prince
Charles of Denmark: "This is my last
visit to London."
Color is given the reports in circula
tion by the deep emotion displayed by
the queen as she' bowed in reply to the
enthusiastic multitude which lined the
route from Buckingham palace to the
railroad station where she took the tram
for Windsor, after the marriage cere
mony. ' '
, Development of Australian Ulnes
San Francisco, July SI. Percy F,
Marks, one of the proprietors, of the
London Financial 2sews, and one of the
recognized authorities on financial mat
ters, arrived yesterday on the Monowai.
The paper was founded in 1SS3, and is
owned by himself and his brother,
Harry H. Marks, a member of parlia
ment. This brother, previous to em
barking in this London newspaper en
terprise, obtained his journalistic expe
rience on American papers.
Mr. Marks has been in Australia mak
ing a study-of the gold fields of West
Australia, New Squth Wales and New
Zealand. As these mines develop,
which they are now doing very rapidly,
he predicts a very remarkable increase
in the supply of gold, amounting, . in
fact, to a glut of the yellow metal in the
market. The mines of West Australia
are particularly prolific, but have" the
disadvantage of being in a country
scantily supplied with wood, water and
means of transportation. But these
disadvantages are being rapidly over
come. The government is extending
the railroad from Perth to Coolgardie,
on to Kalgoorlie, better known at Ho
anuus, 25 miles, an extraordinarily rich
The government has also asked parlia
ment for $5,000,000 for the purpose of
laying 3000 miles of water pipe. In
many places drinking water sells for two
shillings a gallon.
From here Mr. Marks goes to Cripple
Creek to investigate the mining pros
pects there. His paper, he says, has
always. had a favorable opinion of the
Cripple Creek fields. '

The Democratic Nominee ITxpesel ly
Madison, Wis., July 31.-r-The politi
cal campaign of 1896 was opened today
in the presence of 8000 people, Senator
John M. ThurBton, of Nebraska, and
Clarence S. Darrow, of Chicago, for two
and a half hours presenting the respect
ive" sides of the currency question. Each
talked for an hour and a quarter. Dur
ing the course of his speech, Senator
Thurston said :
"I happened to hear Bryan four years
ago in the congressional campaign in
my state. I pledge you, my country
men, and it is a solemn fact, that from
the beginning of that campaign to the
end, William J. Bryan advocated no
other issue, no other argnment than the
tariff. Four years ago I heard William
J. Bryan say to a great audience in my
state: 'Give us free trade and the
American workingman's wages will go
up.' But they went down. He eaid,
'Give us free trade and business will
boom.' But it burst. (Loud applause
and laughter.) The same man today
comes Detore you witn a new promise.
They have discarded the iseue of four
years ago, and now 'Give us free silver
and the wages of men will increase;
give us free silver and the prices of prod
ucts will rise; give us free silver and the
new avenues 'of employment will be
opened up; give us free silver and the
business of the country will boom.' "
After depicting the evils which would
follow the adoption of laws for free coin
age of silver, Thurston added :. v
"Who has carried on this great silver
campaign? On the 11th of July, 1896,
a Democratic paper, the Chicago Chron
icle, published this in - double-leaded
type, on its editorial page:
" 'The proprietors of the big bonanzas
have found it profitable to keep a large
number ot lecturers and other spokes
men cn the road preaching to the peo
ple. Among the many who have thus
been employed and carried on the pay
rolls of the big bonanzas for a number
of years is William: J. Bryan, of Ne?
braska, a paid agent and spokesman for
the free-silver combine.' -
"In the city of Omaha, where William
J. Bryan does editorial work, the Omaha
Bee has made the specific charge, editor!
ally, time and again. It has never been
met. I say, as an American citizen,
having at heart the welfare of the peo
ple, that the man posing as the. advocate
of the down-.trodden masses of bis coun
trymen holding a 'crown of thorns' in
one hand and the bugaboo 'cross of
gold' in the other owes it as a duty to
every man, woman and child in this
country to say whether that charge is
false or whether it is true. I do say, my
countrymen, and I know whereof I
speak, that for three years and a half,
without regard to Bryan, there has been
a eelected corps of orators and ; writers,
paid employes of the silver producers,
spreading . their literature over this
country from one end to the other, tell
ing the farmer that with free silver be
will have more for wheat; telling the
laboringman that with free silver he will
have more for his work."
None Hat Ayer's at the "World's Fair.
Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the extra
ordinary distinction of baving been the
only blood purifier allowed on exhibit at
the world's fair, Chicago. Manufact
urers of other sarsaparillas sought by
every means to obtain a showing of their
goods, but they were all turned away
under the application of the rule for
bidding the entry of patent medicines
and nostrums. The decision of the
world's fair authorities in tavor of Ayer's
Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows :
Ayer's Sarsaparilla Is not a patent
medicine. It does not belong to the
list of nostrums. - It is here on its
