the new spread rapidly to the hotel

On the other hand, Governor Altgeld
a- he Is not a candidate. Several
month ago he even went so far as to
say that he would not accept the nomi

they will force him to accept. His
whole thought and talk has been re

held In Chicago week after next. "It Is
the duty the free silver Democrats owe
to the so-called common people of this
nation," he said, "to carry their point
as to the financial plank. Whitney,
and the loud-mouthed goldbugs ot his
class, have never led a party to any
thing but humiliation or defeat during
the last thirty years."
Referring to Mr. Whitney's statement
that he believed the gold men would
control the party, the governor said:
"If the gold men control they will do
so by the use of arguments that have
a ring to them and a clink, as they
pass from hand to hand and the pock

of the talk that Senator Teller might
be named at Chicago, said that while

Council of the. City of Astoria:
Gentlemen: W'e, your committee on

The water commission claim they are
without fund and much needed work
to be done, that If allowed th 32500 It
should be used In said work, such as
taking up of old pipe, repairing road,
building fences, stone wall, etc., etc.,
and that the $2500, If allowed, will have
no effect on water rate. That no re
duction In water rate will be made,
thi year whether the city pay hy
drant rental or no. Therefore In mak
ing an allowance for hydrant rental
the burden of water consumer will
not be lightened. We further learn
from the commission that an Insuffi
cient amount of money wa borrowed
to construct the water works; that the
commission have used money received
from all sourec In the construction
w hich is the cause of the present deple
tion of their treasury.
I'nder the present condition of man
agement In the water commission we
recommend that no allowance for hy
drant rental be made, as an allowance
will burden the tax payers and furnish
no relief to the consumer of water.

Say He Will Stand by the Platform
and the Party.
Portland, June 22. Congressman W.
R. Ellis, who waa re-elected at the late
election, arrived from Washington to
day, and wilt tomorrow go to Corvallla,
where hi children are attending
school. When asked by a reporter
what he thought of the St. Louis plat
form, he said:
"In the main I like It very welL I
will stand on It. because I am a Re
publican and always have been one.
The money plank declare In favor of
International agreement, but against
the ratio of IS to L The agreement
might result In the adoption of a ratio
of 15"4 to 1, or tome other fixed figure;
but until such agreement 1 consum
mated I will stand on the St Louis
platform, vote for the nominee of that
convention and work for the success
of the Republican party."
"Should a free silver bill be Intro
duced In congress at the next session
will you support It?"
"That depends entirely on circum
stance. I will be guided by the dec
laration of my party. We have now a
plain', unequivocal declaration of the
Republican party, but It Is against the
ratio of It to L Should a bill be intro
duced fixing the ratio at 154 to L I
should still be guided by my party, and
let the question ' be settled In caucus
by party action. It Is the duty ot the
majority of the party to aettle all ques
tions on lines on which all can sub
stantially agree, and I think that some
legislation on this subject will be
adopted that will prove satisfactory to
all. The first thing I want done la to
raise revenue to meet the expenses ot
the government, and should we solve
that problem we will have gone far
toward the solution of other questions
that have been troubling us. Republi
cans do not want to lose sight of the
tariff in the coming election."
Ellis says Senator Mitchell will not
return to Oregon before the last of

CONSUL LEE'S CUBA REPORT.
Washington, June 22. A day or two
at least must elapse before the report
which Consul General Lee I said to
have forwarded Saturday can reach
the state department. It Is not sup-
posed In official circles that he will at
tempt to shape the policy of the state
department as to the recognition of
belligerency or of Independence, which
must be decided in Washington after
the contemplation ot a field broader
than is open to the perception of an
official stationed in Cuba. At present
the state department is giving more
attention o--the grievances of Ameri
can citizens than to the subject of the
propriety of interference in the strife
between the Spaniards, and Cubans,
and has been pushing a vigorous cor
respondence with Hannls Taylor, our
minister at Madrid. The purpose Is to
prevent so far as possible, depredations
on the property ot Americans In Cuba.
