To tell the truth there are not many ef-!
fort being made to get all the Democrats i

get them all in line, certainly on Stjte
matters, to proscribe none and to have no
. heart-turnings or enmities.
There are two Tactions of the demo

The Repoblicans are pulling together.
Ileie is an example. Thomas R. Purnell,
a well known member of that party here
tells me that he does not lwlieve the Re
poblicans will lose 100 votes by auy
"silver bolt io this State." Democrats
need not lay any stress on talk ot a split
in their party or of a bolt of any large
part of the vote.
Tbe Populists will be disappointed if
the Democrats nominate a silver ticket
squarely on silver platform at Chicago.
The Fopulists regard ibis as an intrusiou
and it is because they want to capture all
tbe elements that they are raising a home

a delusion aud a mare.

The Commencement exercises of the

day. Thursday aud Friday evenings of
last week. A program consisting of
t-hirty-seven selections was rendered Wed
nesday evening before a large audience.
Thursday evening an interesting farce,
"Don't Marry a Drunkard to Reiorm
him, was given in five scenes. This com
edy was enjoyed, perhaps, more than any
other part of the program for that even
ing. Several other pieces were recited,
and a number of songs sung by the pupils.
Dr. Sinford, of Cove, opened the ex
ercises Friday morning with prayer. A
paper was read by Mr. Thos. Brogden,
"That there should be more restrictive
immigration laws." Messrs. Frank Hatn-
fj mon and Jack Dixion read very interest

Senator Teller's boom for the Prcsi-
! cientiai nomination ol tlie silvei men is i
the most talked of political topic just now.
Before Senator Teller formally withdrew
j from the Republican party, at the St.
Louis convention, his boom was only a
strong probability. To-day it is a for
midable force, being pushed by men of
political experience. While there has
leen no formal endorsement of Teller's
candidacy by the populists, influential
members of that party have told silver
democrats that Teller is the only man
mentioned in connection with the Chi
cago nomination whose nomination
would certainly be endorsed by the pop
ulists' National Convention, and the
same assertions are being made by the
managers of the silver party, which is to
hold a National Convention at St. Louis
upon the same date that the Populists'
Convention meets July 22nd.
It is too early in the game to say what
the Teller boom will amount to, but it is !
not believed in Washington that he can
get nominated by
the Chicago couven-
tion, even if that convention decides to
nominate a silver man. In view of the
latest figures, accepted by both gold and
silver democrats, which give the silver
men almost two thirds of that conven
tion, it may fcoooi strange to speak of a
doubt existing as to the nomination of a
silver man, but you cannot spend an hour
talking with unprejudiced men who are
carefully noting every move made on the
political board without becoming con
vinced that there is a doubt. The reasons
are numerous. The silver democrats,
while practically unanimous on the
question of a platform, are much divided
on candidatesf That this state of affairs
will be worked for all it is worth by such
anti-silver democrats as Ex-Secretary
Whitney aud Senators Gorman, Brice aad
Hill, who are now busy making plans to
head off the silver men of their party, is
certain. There is little doubt that it all
tlie silver men would support one ticket,
McKinley and Hobart would be given a
bad flight if they were Dot actually de
featetl, but i is extremely doubtful
some do not hesitate to say, impossible
whether any single ticket will be put in
the field which will "be supported by all
the silver meu. At least, that is the way
it looks now.
In add Lion to the organized efforts now
being made to influence the Chicago con
vention, steps are also being taken by
them to try to make the House anti-silver,
however the Presidential election may go.
It is said that a large fund will b; con
tributed to be used in fighting silver
candidates for Congress, no matter what
j their party politics may be, in every dis-
trict in which tliere is the slightest chance
to elect a gold man. j
The Republicans may get up lots of:
enthusiism later on for McKinley and j
Hobart, but there has been mighty little !
so far. They explained this by saying
that it is bicaue the nomination of
McKinley was known so far m a Ivauec
of the convention. Whatever the cause,
may be, it is certiin that the enthusiasm is
Republicans from thu West and North-)
west say that the silver bolt is a much more
erious niatttr than the party at laige is
disposed to regard it. They argue it will
require the defection of only a small
percentage of voters to make every st ite
west of the Mississippi river anti-Republican,
aud that it isn't only the electoral 1
vote of the silver States proper which are
in danger. i
