Tarift Tinkering Promised at the
Des Moines, Iowa, Aug. 23. The
DemooratlcState Convention assembled
here today. Henry Vollmer of Daven
port was ohosen temporary chairman.
After the committees had been an
nounced the convention adjourned to
2 p. m. Tbe renomlnatlon of Boles is
certain, Governor Boies said this morn-
log that bis letter declining to run a
third time was sincere but be was wil

wishes of the Democratic party. The

Stivers, member of the committee from
7th district, u radical aud free silver
man was elected over the free sliver op
ponents at Des Mol nes. In 8th dipt. P.
O. Stuart, free silver candidate, was de
feated. A DEMOCRATIC SPEECH.
On taking the chair Vollmer said:
"We live, it is true, under a Democratic
administration, both state and nation.-
al, but both in state and nation wo are
cursed by Rerublican laws. Let us
not forget, nor permit the people to for
get, that we still have the blesS'd Mo
Kinley bill, that latest buv moat devel
oped oftsboot of tbe poisonous plaut of
protection. Let us not forget, espec
ially, that that cowardly makeshift
denounce 1 by the National platform
of last year, tbe Sherman bill, discred
ited now by its own author, still stands
upon tbe statute books. Our party is
even held responsible fortbo condition
of the treasury of the United States,
yet four years ago it went out of power,
leaving a surplus of a hundred million
dollars. Both tbe MeKIuley and Sher
man bills have got to go, and tbe people
will sustain us in the good work. In tbe
state we are still blessed with a set of
blue laws, that suggest the Ignorant in
tolerance of tbe dark ages, rather than
tbe broad-mludeJ libeiallsm of these
latter dasbf tbe nineteenth century."

How to Slake a Sornpbook.
A scrapbook should not be composed of
miscellaneous material, but confined to
tome special purpose. Let tbe collector de
cide rigidly whether pictures or printed
texts are to be collected. In plotures tbe
Collector should con (1 no himself to n definite
subject, whether portraits, historical land
scapes or some brunch of natural history.
A book of fumous -authors may be collected
front publishers' catalogues alone. In al
most every city or county a volume of local
scebery may bo collected. The collector
fthoutd especially seek to savo what ia like
ly to bo lost. For a book In which to paste
the cuttings almost any bound volume will
do, especially if its pages show a wide mar
(dn, and the print can be readily, covered
by two widths of ordinary newspaper clip
pings. The margin may be used for notes,
Including dates and a few explanatory mem
oranda. The clippings should be kept for a week
or so before they are pasted down because a
second Judgment may rule them out, ljls
quite Bate to advise collectors that no cut-'
ting will do unless it bids fair to bo fresh
and intelligible a year after it has been hon
ored with a place in tbe scrnpbook. If the
pages become too thick for tbe cover, cut
out two or three leaved after each page fill
ed with the cllpplugs. When there Is the
slightest possibility that a scrnpbook may
tie used for publishing purposes or that any
of its entries may be cut out for other uses,
cover one page only, tint on the pago used
the clippings should bo packed closely to
gether. If possible, each clipping should retain
the "rule" which marks the eud of a print
ed paragraph or poem. The column lines
need not bo retained. In fact, it Is best to
cut newspapers always along these lines.
Ragged edges of course should be avoided,
and the mucilage with which tho clippings
ore pasted down should boused sparingly,
lest it ooze through the paper or exude from
under the edges. Flour paste is better than
mucilage, and what is known as photog
rapher's paste is excellent. Literary

Besides Tom Tit, there Is Tom Noddy, the
puffin (Tammle Norrie or Tanimas In Scot
land); Tom Harry, the skua, and Tom Pud

should suppose, are commoner still Jack
Daw, Jack Sparrow, Jack Snipe, Jock
Kicker (the goldfinch), Jack Curlew (the
whlmbrel) and Jack Saw (the goosander).
The town sparrow is surely Jock rather
thun Dick, at least when he Is given his
name in full, although bis somewhat dis
tant cousin, the hedge sparrow, is certainly
Dick Durnock. Willie Is tho guillemot.

It is very Interesting to know that tbe

daw is called Jack, or the cock parrot Poll.

VOORBEES ON SILVER.
Makos the Greatest Speech of His
AGAINST THE SHERMAN BILL
Democrats Defending tho Colnngo
. of Silver.
WAsniNQTON, Aug. 23. Interest in
tho financial discussion in congress was
transferred to the senate, when Senator
Voobeea made a great speech, justifying
his position in voting for the uncondl
tional repeal of tho Bherman act. Near
ly one-third of the entire membership
gathered in the rear seats, aud the gal
leries above were packed to suffocation.
The speeob of Senator Voobeea wrs one
ofhla greatest efforts, and while the
senator did not abate one Jot of bee past
bimetallic record, the burdon of his ar
gument was directed to proving that
tho repeal of tho Sherman act waa a
proposition which, as a necessity, could
have no material effect on the merit
of blmetallsnr as public policy. Allen
gave notice of an amendment be would
nfler to Voobeea' bill. It proposes, to
add to tho repealing clause of that bill
a provision that hereafter standard sil
ver be coined into dollars, halves, quar
ters, and dimes at tho present ratio ol
sixteen to oue, under the same condi
tions as to mintage and other charge
euforced In rotation to tfe coinage ol
t?old, and that tho secretary of tbe treas
ury shall, without unnecessary dojay,
cause all the silver bullion owned by
tho government to be coined into stand
ard silver dollars, to be legal tender.
Voobeea then took tbe floor and ad
dressed ithe senate 1b advocacy of the
bill reported by him, discontinuing the
purchase of silver bullion.
He explained that the action of tbe
president in convening the extra ses
sion was owing to tho loss of confidence
In tho financial world. This loss of
confidence be said, was not in tbe cred
it of the government, wblon waa better
today than any other on tbe globe.
He praised tbe administration for refus
ing to gratify tbe demand of capital lata
for tho issue of (300,000,000 more bonds
He summarized tbe elements of tbe na
tion's financial strength within its own
borders, and regretted tbar legislation
bad checked our foreign trade, and had
left us today without a commercial
friend la the world. He bad faith that
the giant evil which crippled tho com
merce of the country would be remov
ed with tbe other evils wbiob chal
lenged attention and action. If tbe
true greatness of the country were stud
ied it would be Been that financial
panics and alarms could have no faun
datlon here. There was another ex
ceedingly powerful test of tbe govern
ment's credit. Money was simply a
medium for exchange os values; money
was a creature, congress Its creator.
Gold and its alleged Intrinsic value
went for naught as a circulating med
ium unless tbe coin bore the stamp
of the government. The same
official sump on silver or paper at onoe
ennobles them to the same quality with
gold in purchasing power, so matter
how debased and valueless tbe materia
may have become as commodities by
slnstcr or unwise legislation. There
were nine different currencies used In
tbe transaction of business in this coun
try, which should be uniform in pur
chasing power, ho as to make them in
terchangeable. Never but once had
these currencies been discredited by
tbe government, and that wonld never
happen again. It was the duty of the
government to furnish a sound, reliable,
constitutional money for the people.
At tbe evening session of the bouse,
Ellis, Dem., of Kentuoky, spoke ia fa
vor of free coinage. Kalg, Dem., of
Maryland, and De Forest, Dem., of
Connecticut, spoke vigorously for the
repeal of the purchasing clause of tbe
Bherman act. He asserted that tbe cry
for relief came uot so much from the
rich aud powerful as from tbe bumble
poor, from the worthy and Industrious
masses. Arnold, Dein., of Missouri,
denied that there was any condition In
the country to justify the demone-

coinage of silver. In the unmo of the
farmers and laborers be protested
against the minority of tho Democratic
party joining tho bulk of Ilepub leans
In repealing tho Bherman law. Tracy,
Democrat, of New York, vohomeutly
asserted that when tbe vote oame a ma
jority bf tbe Democrats would be found
voting for tbe unconditional repeal of
the purchasing clause. Williams ie-
plied that would never be In this world.
He predicted thai after tho next elec
tion tho monometalist Democrats would
find tbemsolvea with protection Dem
ocrats either at home or on tho Repub
lican side. At the conclusion of Wll
(lams' speech the bouse adjourned.
Unless there are changes In tho sen
nate, which are not looked for, the
majority against tho three appointed
senators will be three or four, rievorul
votes, which will not be according to
the honest oc nvlotlons of the senatorn
but either for personal or silver consid
erations, will be for their admission.
