tbe occasion which isdeserving of note
wns the readiog of the Declaration of

presume, of course.that tho Chaplain's

N'iriN of a less transitory but equally
inspiring influence, that they were

meaning, and that the Uoaumeut was

for anything else. By tho way, the

Mr. Choate, our Ambassador to
England, made ft Fourth of July

the Associated Pross cabled only ono
extract from it, and this extract to us
seems rather ambiguous to say tho

what could tho Americau hare meant,

f.r her safety, that he exclaimed .

lizard of nothing in Mr. Choate's pre

of inquiry than of comment.

Biorea ivoionei uryan launcnea upon a
discussion of the issues of the day in
response to tho toast 'Democracy."
He said in part:
"I congratulate the club upon having
declared in emphatic terms that there
shall be no retreat from the position
taken by the Democratic party in 1896.
The Chicago platform applied Jeffer-
"oniaa Pojples to the question then I

hear a suggestion that the silver plank
bould be dropped or ammended, but as
tboso who threaten to get off
the platform are really the persons who
were never on the platform. The money
question is neither dead nor sleeping.
Kveiy argument made in favor of an
international agreement is a condem
nation of the gold standard.
"I he trust question is not a new one
and yet it has grown in interest and im-
portance because the trusts have grown I
in number. The Federal government I
must deal with the trusts as soon as its I
pernicious influence extends beyond J
the limits of the State in which it is I
organized. If that law is not sufficient
he can recommend laws which are snf-
ficient. The Republican party through I
its administration could extinguish its
trusts if it desired." I
The latter half of Mr. Brvau's sneech I

conclusion: "Let us eive to the Fil

Let us assure them that we stand bv
them like an elder brother, and say to
otner nations, 'bands on. ' Let this re
public work out its destiny.
A Week to Think it Over
The Hague. By Cable. The third
committee, sitting Friday morning at
the Hulsten Boacb, discussed the
scheme for the mediation and arbitra
I tion convention drawn up by the Com-

haye only been acquainted with the
proposals since Thursday, and they
have not had time to consult their gov
ernments. Consequently it has been
decided that when the committee ad-
journs it will be until July 17, in order
to allow the dolegates a week in which
to consult their governments and re
ceive hnal instructions.

To show the damage done the follow
ing estimates hnve beeu made by men
who are in a position to know: Lives
lost from tOO to 300; loss to farmers,
including crops as well as live stock
from $5,000,000 to 15,000,000; damage
to railroads and country bridges
$2,000,000 to 4,000,000. These esti-
mates are based on the flood damage in
the whole area. It is knowu that more
than GO people have met their death
and that many bodies have been re
covered. It is not believed that all of
I them will ever be recovered.

tive of the Associated Press to the pro-
P8als of tlie United States for the pro-
; tection of private property at sea, with
the exception of contraband of war, in
time of war, from capture or seizure,
said: "We have strong grounds for
making the propositions. The presi
dent understood that the Russian invi
tation comprised the question of private
property at sea, and has instructed us
to raise ihe question. We will push the
matter energetically insisting that the
J conference is competent aud that if its
competence is doubtful a liberal inter
pretation was necessary.
