Crisp has any support in the delegation., it is understood that most of Tho Active leaders of the party in Massachusetts outside of the delegation Are outspoken in expressing the opinion that or. Mills position As the leading advocate of Tariff Reform and his Hearty support of the demand for free raw materials entitle him to the support of the democratic members from this Section. Depends More on t he candidates than Ever before. Of course the Issue will be forced on Protection As against free Trade and the result is not oven Boston tuesday morning november 24, the state of business. Cleveland takes no Paet. Points of political interest gathered from Many sources. Washington nov. 20.�?there has been a marked change in the speaker ship contest during the past 24 hours. Instead of it being Mills against the Field As it was two weeks ago the close observers now say that Crisp Bas the Lead and stands More than an even Chance of pulling out ahead unless the Field make a combination against him. There Are various reasons to account for the increase of Confidence among Crisni a friends. A careful examination of or. Mills figures or at least those that be has allowed to be made Public and ail examination of some of the claims that have been made for him by his friends show that or. Mills has either been carried away by his own enthusiasm or else he has been misled. While of course the speaker ship is greatly in doubt and everything May be changed when the new members come Here in numbers and Are Given a Chance to discuss the situation it is very Plain that the Mills people Are not at All confident of the result and their claims Are to be very largely Dis counted. Two instances of the Way in which votes have been set Down in the Mills column and which do not properly belong there Are perhaps typical of other things of the same sort. It has been very co fluently asserted by the Mills men that he had the solid vote of the Ohio delegation and this assertion has been allowed Togo a contradicted. Of is now positively stated that of the 14 votes from Ohio. Mills will have two. Springer two. And the remainder will be for c risp owing to Tho influence it or. Out a Waite the senior member of the delegation who served for several years on the election committee with or. Crisp. The publication of a despatch from Boston in this evenings panel to the effect that the new England delegation had held a meeting and with the exception of perhaps one or two had practically decided not to support or. Mills had a depressing effect upon the friends of that gentleman hero from almost Tho very outset of the Campaign or. Mills Lias claimed with great Confidence Hie solid support of new England and As in the Case of the Ohio vote until today in has been impossible to ascertain whether there was any justification for the assertion. The fact that so Many of or. Mills claims Are being disputed is hurting him As it leads to the suspicion in the minds of some that he is not so Strong As lie would like to have imagined while whatever Mills has lost Lias so far been Crisni a gain the Early announcement of Bynums withdrawal from the race and turning Over of the Indiana delegation to or. Mills need not be a Surprise to any one. There has never been much in Bynums Cand Dacy but it has served to keep away votes from Mills and to that extent has helped Crisp. One thing which has Hurt or. Mills and Winch will do him More harm before the fight is Over is Ute Well known Izot that nearly All the Well known republicans heed Burrows Mckinley Cannon men who will he in tile next House or who have served with or. Mills in previous sessions of Congress age urging his claims and saving that the democratic party cannot Well afford to ignore him a the greeks hearing gifts Are to be regarded with suspicion and just Why republicans should show such a deep interest in a matter which is really no concern of theirs is a circumstance strange enough to need explanation. It is Well understood Why Reed of All men. Wants to see Mills elected. He believes Mills would be the easiest Man in the chair for him to a tangle up a and of course it is to his advantage to see or. Mills put Thoro. The people to the people. Producing classes being impoverished in midst of wealth they create. The National executive committee of the Peoples party has issued an address to the people of the United states. The address says there is no longer any doubt that candidates for president and vice president will be Iii Tho Field before june 1892, nominated by the Peoples party. The address declares the time has come when no influence of the old political organizations and no Power of aggregated capital can prevent the Hearty and unanimous coming together and co operation of All the labor forces of the United states whether employed in the workshop or tile mine or on the farm. The producing classes have hitherto remained impoverished in the midst of the very plenty which they created those who have unwed have not possessed the wealth of the world while those who toiled have too often suffered for the necessaries of life. But the multitude have been taught the supreme necessity for co operation in defence of the inborn rights of humanity. The producing classes of the United states Are the nation All others simply live by the toil imposed on the Industry of the workers. The people have beheld with growing alarm the continual Advance of conditions which every Day have us nearer and nearer to an abyss in which we can see Only the supremacy of a crushing oligarchy or the alternative of revolution and anarchy. The address says it is for the purpose of saving free institutions by the peaceful instrumental ties of education and the ballot that the Peoples party has been organized. It asserts that an overwhelming necessity exists for such a movement. The Shadow of plutocracy it declares is spreading steadily Over our land. The Railroad corporations have grown into a vast and powerful con piracy which corrupts Legislatures de douches juries and casts the slime of its rottenness Over the very judges of our courts. The Hanking associations have swelled into a lordly National confederation holding All business in its grip Able to a ice or wreck As its own interest May dictate the Prosperity of All classes while not a Dollar of currency finds its Way tothe people from the government that does not present a Dollar of debt to the Money manipulating class. The address alleges that the daily newspaper press Lias been coerced by its business necessities into becoming the ready instrument to bind tile shackles of serfdom on the limbs of a free people to confuse their minds by sophistry to fill their ears with falsehoods to uphold everything that is destructive to Public Good. Anc. To crus i everything that would help the people. The address states that nine tenths of the population of this country in consequence of the misrepresentations of the press believe that the Peoples party vote in Kansas in 1891 fell off very greatly while the official figures show that the people s party vote was actually increased about Llva per cent Over its vote in 1890, and was 47 per cent of the entire vote. The Republican majority in South Dakota was re used from 10,000 in 1800 to 2700 in 1891, while in Nebraska the Peoples party came w thin 0000 votes of defeating the combined Power of both the old parties. The address denounces the a unholy Union of the two old parties against their to pleas party in certain judicial districts in Kansas declares that the people perceive that there is room in this country for Only two political parties a party which represents the people and a party which represents tile plunderers of the people. Says the address we expect before the close of the election in 1892, to see Tho two old parties marching Aud Hur Rahing together Iii defence of the iniquities which have covered the land with mortgages and driven the Republic to the verge of destruction. The address expresses Confidence in the Triumph of the Peoples party in 1892, and appeals to every honest Man to help Bury the monster plutocracy. He is equally the Friend of All the candidates for the speaker ship. New York nov. 21.�?in Tho recorder this morning Grover Cleveland authorizes the statement that he is taking no part in the contest for the speaker ship of the House that he is As much the Friend of each candidate As he is of any other that he has never declared himself As favouring or. Mills More than Crisp or or. Springer. Or or. Mcmillan and that to has not made and does not intend making any suggestions in respect to the organization of the House of representatives. Or. Cleveland made this expression of his views to an eminent politician and personal Friend who went to him last thursday in behalf of one of the candidates for the speaker ship and asked him Why he was allowing his name to be used in or. Mills interest to the prejudice of or. Crisp or. Springer and or. Mcmillan. Quot it is not True that i have said i wanted or Mills to be speaker Quot replied or. Cleveland in substance. A i am a Friend of or. Mills but i Ani also the Friend of or. Springer and or. Crisp and or. Mcmillan. A i am equally interested in the canvass of each of these gentlemen and any use of my name by the friends of or. Al ills is unwarranted and unjust to or. Cleveland said that he desired to be put right Defore the Purine in the matter. He has been a great Deal vexed by the very free use that Lias been made of his name by the knot of congressmen who Are trying to make Mills speaker. In connection with or. Mills leadership of tile democratic party on tile Tariff question. The prestige of sex president Cleveland a name has been peddled about the country and used ruthlessly for what it was Worth. Tile country generally believes that Cleveland a sympathies Are strongly with or. Mills and that he has tried As far As lie could without compromising himself to Gam support for him. It now appears that or. Cleveland has done nothing of tile sort and that to takes this time to announce his impartial position. What effect if any ads declaration will have is left to the political students to determine Republican league talk. Election figures talked Over at the National conference. New York nov. 20. A the executive committee of the Republican National league met at the Plaza hotel this morning. Twenty three states were represented. The morning was taken up by the delegates making detailed reports of the work done in their states and the work proposed to he done by their respective organizations. Referring to the work of tile league in Kansas Delegate e. Little said that one year ago the Farmers Alliance swept everything carrying 90 out of too districts the Republican party being demoralized there. This year the Republican Central committee turned Hie work Over to the league with the result that the situation has been Rev erased. The delegation from Buffalo claims the credit of reducing the 600 a democratic majority in Erie county last year to 1600 this year. Tho executive committee will probably adjourn this afternoon As Many of the members intend going to Washington. Redistricting needed. Topeka kan., nov. 21.�?judge w. Webb of this City has written an opinion in which he says that Kansas will lose a presidential elector unless Tho governor convenes the legislature in special session for the purpose of redistricting the state for congressional purposes. He cites the Constitution. Which is very Plain. The matter has been seriously considered by Many leading republicans of the state but Goy. Humphrey has expressed no opinion. He has said. However that nothing Short of a Public calamity would induce him to con Vene the legislature Iii extra session. All the parties Here will nominate candidates for Congress at Large unless the state is re distracted. The same condition exists in Missouri and gov. Francis is being urged to rail a special session of the legislature. I he congressmen there Are opposed to any changes in their districts and will prevent it if possible. Should gov. Francis decline to Convene the legislature. Gov. Humphrey could decline in Kansas and the loss of an elector in Eracli state would not affect the general result. Anti sub Treasury Alliance. Chairman w. S. Mcallister of the anti sub Treasury Alliance executive committee has issued a Call for a National convention of All anti sub Treasury Alliance men to be held at Memphis. Tenn. Dec. To. This is the first move to organize an opposition to the Alliance f. M. B. A.

New York nov. 19.�?the executive committee of the Republican National league met at the Plaza hotel this morning. Twenty three states were represented. Tile morning was taken up by the delegates making detailed reports of the work done m their states and the work proposed to be done by their respective organizations. Referring to the work done by the league in Kansas Delegate e. Little said that one year ago the Farmers Alliance swept everything carrying to out of iou districts the Republican party being demoralized there. Tins year the Republican Central committee turned the work Over to the league with Tim result that Tho situation has been reversed. The delegation from Buffalo claims the credit of reducing the 5000 democratic majority in Erie county last year to i too this car.

The report telegraphed from Washington that a the new England delegation had held a meeting and with the exception of per haps one or two had practically decided not to support or. Mills a is erroneous. It can be Amzior Stively stated that while the new England delegation has not yet taken any formal and definite action the preferences of a majority of its members Aru decidedly for or. Mills. It is still an open question whether the vote of the delegation can be cast As a unit for any candidate but it can be positively stated that no candidate but or. Mills can republicans at the capital forecast Victory for their party in �?T92. New York nov 22.�?the lungs of the Republican party Are in the capital tonight. The National committee of that party will meet Here Early this week to decide several other matters beside the location of the next National convention. The Arlington hotel is As full of republicans As a Trust company s office generally is of widows. That its members have discussed among themselves the results of the recent elections is highly probable that the matter will have consideration it the first executive session of the committee is certain., _ what the leaders of the party say now is More interesting and a world correspondent asked a few of the Republican chiefs their opinions of the present condition and the future Outlook of their party apropos of Tho recent elections. James Clarkson chairman of the executive committed of the National committee was As difficult of approach As a scion of Royalty. But when he was finally reached he was affability itself. He would Only say the Republican party is master of the situation. In every state where Thode Moc racy won its Success was attained by Voles that were not Joseph Manley of Maine the Short and Jolly Chanticleer of Blaine and his fortunes a nothing is seen in the result of the recent elections to change the Republican situation. Whenever the Republican party makes a contest on the principles of the party it wins. A wherever it undertakes the fight on personal issues it fails. It is through with per Sonal contests. It Ila closed the Book on that line of col. Conger of Ohio said Quot i believe the prospects for the party never wore brighter than now. Our recent Victory in Ohio demonstrates that the National contest will be fought on the Lino of reciprocity and Protection with All that these words imply and that on them the Republican party can cd a. Hobart of new Jersey said a the party is in Good condition but we Are not encouraged by the result in new York. It seems to me that Ohio is again a Republican state beyond doubt it is the Only state in which National issues were dominant in the contest. The fight was made from the Start. Quot the situation was the very reverse in new York Aud i might add in Massachusetts. Hie present condition of the party is harmonious even in new York we shall poll our full vote in the presidential year. But it is safer to utter a prediction regard ins any other state Titan new \ Ork. Quot Massachusetts will be ours in 92. I Don t believe any Democrat could successfully claim the state in a presidential year of a cannot carry Massachusetts in �?T92 you can quote me As saying that their is no Hope for the Republican party in that year if a state like alas Sachs setts is to be lost to the party we Are done for. But Massachusetts is no More doubtful than Maine. Quot in conclusion quote me As saying that the general result of the recent elections leaves tile party in fair j. Sloat Fassett and John w. Vrooman were smoking cigars on the third floor of the Arlington. Or Vrooman made his escape but or. Fassett said Quot anything i May say will to alleged to be the woes of a Defeated candidate. That Sall right. Ill have to stand that. Quot quote me As saying that the Outlook for the party is Bright and that the recent elections have left the republicans in a very hopeful mood for next year. Vav hat we want is hard work and no absenteeism that s All i can Robert g. Evans member of the National committee from Minnesota said Quot wherever the Issue was an out and out one Between Republican beliefs about the Tariff and the democratic heresy of free Trade our party won. I refer to of to particularly and Pennsylvania relatively. In Massachusetts As i understand the situation the Tariff played Little or no part. In new York nothing that effected National issues in 1892 happened so far As the re publican party is concerned. Quot no we do not talk about candidates in Advance. June will be time enough for senator paddock of Nebraska said a the result left us exactly where we were As a party. Take the states lost and won pair them and you have a standoff Massachusetts neutralizes our Victory in Ohio. Quot i admit the fight for�?T92 was begun in the bucs Eye state. It seems to me issues will not be changed. Aside from expecting a Republican Success i see no reason Why the Mckirk Ariff should cripple us. Michael Eis Young of California was As confident that the Republican convention would be held in san Francisco As he was that the Republican party would sweep the country next year. He said Quot the Republican party is As healthy As a California dear Republican Success 92 sex president Hill dead. The venerable former president of Harvard College Dies at the age of 73�?sketch of his honoured career. Portland me., nov. 21.�?�?o or. Hill is dead Quot was the news received this afternoon from Waltham mass., where for some weeks the distinguished pastor of the first Parish Church has been waiting for tile messenger of death for All Hope of his recovery passed away Long ago. The news of the death of the most distinguished minister of Maine of any Root Ostant denomination and such was the position accorded to or. Hill by common consent created a profound sensation. To the outside world or. Hill was an exp resident of Harvard a distinguished Champion of the unitarian Faith and a great Leader of religious thought but in Portland he was for Many years a Dart of the social scientific literary Aud political life of the people of All denominations a tried and True Friend of Temperance a Leader in All educational work and the leading preacher of the City and state. Or. Hill was born in new Brunswick in 1818, while but a boy he entered a printing office a fact he was fond of recalling in after life when he was helping to need the press Bush. While president of Harvard he replied to Horace Greeley who had indulged in some reflections on colleges by remarking that one College president at least was a graduate of a printing office As Well As of a College. While in the printing office to acquired his taste for newspaper Reading that went with him through life. To Tho very last of his Active life he was one of the Best informed of Mon on All passing events Aud took the deepest interest in Tho movements of the Public men of ids time. After leaving the printing office which he did before lie Baa completed Tho then regular term he worked for a while in a drug store but Tho great desire he had to acquire a Liberal education his thirst for knowledge a the desire to know a As he once said. Led him to leave business and devote himself to study. In 1849, he graduated from Harvard and at once entered tile divinity school from which he graduated in 1845. In a Public address a few years ago or. Hill stated that his a first desire to become a minister of Christ was formed after Reading a Sermon preached by or. Mark Hopkins so that strangely enough the great congregationalist led tile greater unitarian into what proved to be the work of his life. For 14 years he was Jastor of a unitarian Church in Waltham mass., making for himself a High reputation As a preacher and As an Earnest Aud solid thinker. Even then his place in the front rank of the thinkers and leaders of his Church was fully assured and greater honors were in store for 1859 he succeeded Horace Mann As president of Antioch College Ohio and while there was also pastor of the Church of the redeemer in Cincinnati. Chosen president of Harvard in 1862, lie held that office until ihc8. When lie resigned on account of impaired health. He retired to Waltham and in 1871 served in the state legislature after which i he accompanied Louis Agassi in ins coast Survey expedition to South America. On hts returning he accepted a Call from the first Paris i Church Iii Portland where he has since resided. His most remarkable act while president of Harvard was hts advocacy of the elective system Aud it was Iii his term of office that tile first changes in that direction were made. Beside his religious labors As a pastor and lecturer or. Hill took great interest in the Advance made by modern science in All respects and his own scientific contributions were numerous and valuable. Tile list of his published writings is a Long one and includes Quot geometry and Faith a new York 1849, revised edition in 1874, and in Boston in 1882 Quot second Book in geometry a a Boston 1802 Quot Jesus the interpreter of nature and other sermons a 1859 Quot practical arithmetic a in 1881 Quot Christmas and poems on slavery a Boston 1843. Ile was also a frequent contributor to the religious press and to the magazines. All of his More important sermons were printed in some form. Or. Hill took a deep interest inventions and himself took out one or More patents. To the last he was an eager student of a important inventions and when Edison began his remarkable series predicted that at last the reign of old methods was about Over. He looked to see steam give place to electricity and watched the rapid developments made within the last few years with eager interest. Always thoughtful and impressive he gathered about Nim the Best and strongest thinkers of the City. The late or. Justice Clifford was for Many years an attendant a a is ministry and Hon. Bion Bradbury Firtha judge Fox his brother. Hon. Fredn. Fox judge Symonds Hon. Moses Butler Ali a Host of the leaders and thinkers of Portland were to be found sunday after sunday in the first Paris i Church. Or. Hill was Quot mighty in the he received As he said Quot Christ As the life the truth and the Way a and his one aim was to present what he Felt to be the real Christ the Friend and Leader.

Processes by which milk is solidified into Grindstone. Harper Young people the first stage in the making of choose is that by which the curd is separated from the whey. This is done by heating the milk to a Given temperature varying according to the season Aud afterwards adding a Certai proportion of rennet when the cheese is to be coloured the dyeing matter is put in before the rennet. In less than half an hour after the heat has been applied the coagulation has so far progressed that the curd from Winch the whey has been drawn is ready to be Cut almost the Only instrument used in the making of cheese is the curd knife curious looking arrangement something like a double comb with Long Teeth.

I done to want my wife to see it just now. New York non. Lias just been Learned in naval circles that the new United Blate Cruiser Philadelphia is in a most unfortunate condition. The vessel is reported As a seaworthy and that the greatest care is being taken to prevent her turning literally Bottom Side up. It is furthermore Learned that the vessel is until to go into Active service from the fact that a shot entering at the water line would be sufficient to flood the upper tier of bunkers and cause Tho vessel to disappear altogether. Naval constructor Mintonye now at the Portsmouth Navy Yard has estimated that an expense of #275,000 will he necessary to reduce the protective deck and insure alone the one feature of stability. Naval constructor Fernald at the Brooklyn Navy Yard said today that he thought the whole of the poop should be stripped off and also the Bridges. If this latter plan is followed. Tim Philadelphia a usefulness As a flagship will at once end. The facts concerning the Philadelphia Are briefly As follows the Philadelphia was built at the Yards of William cramp amp sons of Philadelphia was completed and turned Over to the government in 1890. Her resigns were purchased from the firm of sir William Armstrong is co., no cast a eng. Lite designs were originally those of a Cruiser for the Spanish Navy gotten up by Armstrong. But rejected by the Spanish government. When sold to Tho United states the Armstrong people Ware in tie habit of alluding to the plans As those of Quot no. 27,&Quot the rejected of Uanis a Cruiser a a few changes were made in Tho plans when received in Washington among others being a reduction in weight of the machinery of 200 tons. On being accepted by the government Tho Philadelphia in due course of time Cairns to the Brooklyn Navy Yard she was fitted out Tor sea. And after a lengthy stay was about to be ordered to sail. Before this order was git in. Though the commandant of the Yard. Rear Admiral d. A Brame called for a written statement from naval constructor a. L. Mintonye to the effect that the vessel was fit to go to sea to the Surpris of the commandant naval constructor Mintonye refused to sign any such statement. It is said that three demands were made upon him and t hat on each occasion he refused. Or. Mintonye insisted on learning the exact met Centric height of tile Philadelphia. The Nieta Centric. It should he known is the Point in a ship above which the Centre of Gravity of weight must never be placed at Tho risk of capsizing. The met Centric Heights of the cruisers san Francisco Newark and outer new vessels approach closely to in inches. In the Case of Tho now Cruiser Detroit the height is three vet seven inches. When the Philadelphia was docked and keeled Lier met Centric height was found to to Only four inches it should have been not less than 12 inches for safety alone and for fighting qualities should have been front 14 to 18 inches. As Hie Philadelphia was Given but few stores and a Small Coal Supply All of which were kept Well below tile upper decks the Cruiser was allowed to proceed for a Short run to sea. At the very outset the effect of the Philadelphia s Low met Centric height was observable in her Long deep and slow Rolls. This Peculiar Roll was so noticeable As to cause considerable comment among the Crew the sensitiveness of the Philadelphia became Early apparent. In Hor return to Tho Brooklyn Navy Yard occasion was found to shift a piece of shafting from a Central Tarsi Tion out to tile Side of the ship. To vie astonishment of Many the Cruiser wave a Aillet in the direction of Tho Shaft. It was from this time on that the condition of the Phila Dolphin received serious consideration. It was found on calculation that there was a Point Iii the freeing of the lower tier of Bun Kern where if the Coal was not passed Down from the upper bunkers the ship would turn Over by sheer ton weight it was shown that after a removal of a certain Quantity of Coal from the lower tier of Hunters the Meta Condric height would wholly disappear. It should be renin tiered that the Coal in the upper bunkers serves As a partial Protection Aud the idea has All along been to allow the upper bunk ors to remain full during Battle just so Long As possible to keep up lire from the lower Tho Philadelphia is provided with double Bottom any injury to tile outer Bottom need not necessarily endanger the ship. The Cruiser Boston it will be remembered ran on a Rock off Newport Harbor piercing Lier outer Bottom. I he tuner Bot Tom kept the ship from sinking. When the Philadelphia sailed for Tho West indies it was imperative for the safety of the ship to fill the space Between Tho outer and inner Bottom with seawater. The space was. In consequence filled with several Hundred tons of water. Increasing the vessels displacement deadening Lier steaming Powers and inviting injury to the inner Hull sides from rust. All during her West India cruise one officer of the Philadelphia states tile Cruiser carried water Between her Bottoms it being feared to lighten her up by freeing Lier of this dead weight. After having filled Tim tanks orders were issued to use Coal first from Tho upper Hunters. As Tho Coal could not he passed Down through the lower bunkers it had to to hoisted to the upper deck and then lowered Down through Hatchway to Tho Tiro room. There was one continual a Coal ing of ship a a or. As the sailors termed it Quot Coaling ship at sea a. On Tho return of the Philadelphia to the Navy Yard this summer her Stool masts were taken out and replaced by two Light wooden spars. This alteration did away with the leverage effect to a great extent it being found though that the water ballast would have still to to carried to afford safety. It was recommended to line the inner Bottoms with Cement. Ibis recon meal atop Lias not yet. Been acted upon unless now. The protective deck is lowered or tile poops stripped off Hie Only Altern Tive will be to make some Chan go in the Bottom. The change of wooden soars for Stoe spars gave a reduction of 20 tons weight it is just possible that the Cruiser May de Given a Belt of cellulose or some other water excluding substance in the Vicinity of her water line. Something of this sort will have to be done or the vessel it is de dared can never be sent into action.
