Alabama republicans claim that
they will carry the state in the

The republicans may win some
temporary advantage by making
political coalitions in Southern
states, but in the end it will come
home to them like chickens to
roost. No party can sacrifice its
principles and save its honor.
The republicans and populists
carried North Carolina by fusion
two years ago and each secured a
senator thereby, but no amount of
abase was spared them for the
unwilling inroads made iu the
ranks of the faithful. Now it
seems that the democrats are court
ing the populists for a like coali
tion. It all depends on whoae ox

Unless either McKinley or Reed
are nominated in the early part of
the St Louis convention, Senator
Allison will loom up as a strong
second choice and capture the plum.
The objection that be is too far
west falls flat when comparison is
made with Lincoln as a presiden
tial candidate. He was chosen
from Illinois in 1800, which, then,
was much farther west than Iowa
is today, backed as she is with an
unbroken chain of states to the
Pacific ocean, where in I860 were
territories inhabited mainly by sav
ages and maintaining bat a sem

lican candidates are, in the main,
pretty good men, but the opponents

Indications of oil in and about Los
Angeles have been appnren, for years,
and a few instances are on record of
PTithiisiastic nrosncctors who Blink
wells to the depth of from 100 to 200
feet, and actually succeeded in securing
an occasional barrel of crude petro
leum. The first cable car line was built in
Los Angeles in 18S6, and it was natu
rally conceded by investors generally
that a piece of laud close in on the
cable line was about the biggest card
in their pack. This particular section
of town is made up of a series of hills
crowded along aa closely together as
a prairie dog village and just about as
av ailable for town lots, a local reai es
tate dealer acquired some property in
the inuch-valued region, and then for
several years tried vainly to sell out
at almost any price. Finally, in a fit of
desperation,' he decided to bore for oil.
This was in August of last year.
Discouragement and ridicule met him
on all sides, and when l.OUO foot had
been reached without result, his "wild
cat" scheme was the talk of the town.
Then something happened.. Sudden
ly, in the dead waste and middle of the
night, a tremendous burst of of. and
gas shot out of the drill hole, Hung
every portable object in its pathway
high in the air, literally soaked tho
men in attendance, and sattirntv? the
region roundabout with the grimy,
ill-smelling substance. Dismay reigned
supreme, until the owner cf the well
was enabled to turn the enormous out
put into a hastily-constructed tank.
At first a universal wave cf indigna
tion swept over the- community which
had in the passing of years taken up
its abode in this region. It was out
rageous that olfactories ; of the peo
ple should be so violently assailed
their very hearth-stones invaded. It
was furthermore declared that the well
wns a' menace to health, und applica
tions to abate the nuisance were made
to the city council
Then there wae a great calm, which
lasted exactly 4 hour,; after which
every adjacent property owner with
$1,500 in hand or in sight began to pre
pare for. boring; Innumerable agents
now appeared on the aeenc, eager to
furnish estimates on readiug, casing
tubbing, etc.; to supply rig irons, en
glnes, boilers, or tand pu'nps, while you
waited; to take your measure for oil
proof overalls; to move your house.
Oil companies and oil exchanges are
being organized mid reorganized al
most dailv. Two nine-lines are con.'
plcted f fom the field to the railway
tracks, one having a 32,000-barrel ator
age tank, and the other with a c.i
pacity of 35.C00 barrels. These lines
cost about $73,000.
There are over 400 wells In actual
operation to-day, and the drHl'ng Is
progressing rop'.dly. What with the
jmrchiwe of phuits und the cost of pip
ing the oil to tlir railroads, nearly $1

They are the same fluffs; that Is, there
