Quot he did All he knew to bring her Quot pack to consciousness unsuccessfully and finally had to leave her and run out for a doctor who fortunately lived Only a couple of doors away. After a lot of trouble the doctor resuscitated her but she immediately became hysterical and went off again. In her hysterics she kept calling out that there was a Man trying to get in at the window. The next Day she described him As a Man with a rough Cap and a Beard and striped Coal that s ail she could Tell As it was so dark. He tried to break the window but when she shrieked and fell in a faint he must have been frightened and escaped. Of course the Story was ii ooh poohed but the lady insisted she was right. Quot two Days later my Friend went Home and found her again unconscious. This time she was so seriously frightened that it was several Days before she was Able to attend to her House duties and her Mother came to stay with her. Another two Days passed. There had beep no further attempt t on the part of any Man to break in. The Mother had persuaded her daughter to take a Nap saying she would prepare Tea and she went downstairs to do so. It was a Little later than usual and my Friend was already due Home. In fact he had the. Key in the Keyhole when his ears were saluted by a series of piercing shrieks. He rushed into the House and found his Mother in Law in a faint and his wife glib Bering like an idiot and pointing at the window on the Sill outside of which sat a huge Angora cat with one Paw up at the panel.

Said a few Days ago. Quot it inculcates a High Standard of morality. It is almost a in his address tomorrow he proposes to treat of Washington As a Mason. He has made a close study of Washington s masonic career from rare old papers and documents and his address purposes to be one of great of speaker Sand their by sex mayor Cave none of the leading spellbinder discusses the various styles of the country 3 leading As a Mason Quot with sketches from old documents in or. Haven s Possession. Mystic tie Lodge f. And a. M., has arranged to give a memorial Celebration on the anniversary of the death of Washington tomorrow night. The exercises will take at the Lodge Hall in the masonic Temple and an invitation has been extended to All masons. An attractive feature of the Celebration will be an address by sex mayor John Caven on Quot Washington As a it was the original intention to hold the meeting in the scottish rite Hall but owing to or. Caven s enfeebled condition it was decided to select a smaller Hall where his voice might be heard to advantage. Or. Caven is seventy tive years old and has been ill recently. Sex mayor Caven has been a member of the masonic fraternity since october 1.3, 1s6&Quot.3, when he was initiated As a member of Center Lodge of Indianapolis. He recalls that at that time some of the leading lights of Center Lodge were Thomas Clark worshipful master Charles Fisher treasurer and past master Avi Aston p. Noble who died a few years ago Benjamin c. Dai Row and Epli Raim Cole Stock. Or. Caven was made a Royal Arch Mason of Indianapolis chapter no. 5, december 8, i860. On March 8, 186ij, he made a Royal and select master of Indianapolis Council no. 2. He received the scottish rite degrees Early in 1s6g, the class being cont ducted by e. T. Carson of Cincinnati then Deputy for Ohio and Indiana. To received the thirty third degree May 19, 1866. He became a member of Raper commander knights templars Jan. Is 1ss6. He has been the first occupant of Many honorable positions in masonry. In november i8g8 he was appointed the first worshipful master of Mystic tie Lodge and was re elected in iso1870, 1871 and 1872. He was elected the first thrice potent of Adoniram grand Lodge of perfection and was re elected every year until 1s73. On May 19, 1866, when he received the thirty third degree he was made the first Active member of the supreme Council for the state of Indiana and the first Deputy for this state. In 1872 he was elected the first Patron of the order of the Eastern Star. He has held other important positions in masonry and has always Sho in an abiding interest in anything that pertains to the order. He was twice Junior Warden of Center Lodge and for two years was Lunior Warden of the Council of the princes of Jerusalem. He served one term As prelate of the commander and two years As grand Chancellor of the consistory. The other two members of the supreme Council for Indiana chosen in 1866, were Thomas Austin and Elbridge Hamilton. The former lived at new Albany and the latter at it. Wayne. Both Are dead now. Or. Caven has frequently been called on to deliver addresses at masonic gatherings. The last address of note was delivered at the laying of the Cornerstone of the masonic Temple in 1875. Notice that he would be depended on to deliver the address was served on the saturday previous to the monday of which the dedication was to take place. Or. Caven was then mayor and his time was occupied All Day saturday in disposing of cases in police court. All of sunday Forenoon he was interrupted by callers and the address was written on sunday afternoon. Notwithstanding the Short time for preparation the address has been considered a Gem of masonic literature. The order had it printed in pamphlet form and there have been Calls for it from All Over the country and some from abroad. Or. Caven was never grand commander although he was once in the Early seventies in direct line for promotion to that place but was prevented by a Long period of illness of continuing in office. Although on account of his age he has not been in a Lodge room for Many years he is still an enthusiastic advocate of Mayo Najr. Quot it is an excellent order Quot he Quot it is Odd Quot Mahlon Chance one of the old time spellbinder Quot and one of the Best of them All said to nov York friends Quot How speakers differ in to iier methods. Quot the late col. Robert g. Ingersoll began his lectures in an easy going half joking manner giving his audience plenty of time to digest his arguments and laugh at his witticisms. Quot but soon tie speaker became in deadly Earnest. The flippant manner disappeared. Ilm Smoje Guy Way to an expression intense main Estner a the halting speech became an Avalanche of fiery words threatening to carry his listeners away in its awful velocity scorn followed sarcasm and denunciation chased on the heels of philippic. He would Ihen utter two Hundred words a minute As Sharp and distinct As stroke of lightning. Quot president Mckinley in Speed As in manner is very deliberate and never uses an expression until he has weighed its full Force and probable effect. Quot in political campaigns he of ten As High As a dozen and at times sixteen speeches in one Day. Realizing the sign Tiance and use that May be made of his words he carefully prepares each speech and having commuted it to memory never deviates from it in delivery. He Speaks slowly and delivers his remarks with much earnestness and Force. His enunciation is perfect. Quot sex pre amp quient Harn Sua on the other hand is the direct opposite in speech. He is an Impromptu speaker Bat he is ready at any time to deliver an address Wincn in itself is a classic and very Seldom is his fiction so tau ii Liat tie Sli Orilian Man Linds it Neceski Ary to Maive a correction. Quot sex president Grover Cleveland is what be called a straight from the shoulder orator. While not eloquent he is forceful using vigorous language frequently coining words that Giro not in the vocabulary of the stenographer. He mounts the platform As though he Hud a duty to perform and does it with out hesitation. His sentences Are always Complete for the reason that Liis addresses Are always Caret ily written and rehearsed before delivery. Quot William Jennings Bryan at some places and under some circumstances Speaks Sion by but on other occasions when aroused his words How with marvelous rapidity. An illustration of his intense interest in his speeches will be found in the occasion at South Bend ind., when he was on the platform Only fifty minutes. He was continuously interrupted by applause yet he spoke Over 1u,0uu words enough to Lili eight columns in a newspaper. On the other hand his convention speech in Chicago was Given slowly. Quot Mary Elizabeth lease is probably the loudest voiced woman orator in the world. It is said that she can be heard two blocks away in an Otjen air speech. Quot like Many other women speakers her delivery is very fast but is at the same time very distinct. As one of the newspaper correspondents at the time of the populist National convention at st. Louis in 18% remarked she has a voice like a farm hand calling cows but she knows How to use that voice in order to stir up her fellow populists. At times she will speak at the rate of 250 words a minute. Quot there is no More methodical speaker than sex governor John p. Altgeld of Illinois. His big speeches he carefully prepares and sends copies in Advance to the newspapers. But to is Apt to take liberties with his own manuscript being governed by conditions and the remarks of his fellow orators on the same platform. Quot it is in Impromptu efforts that or. Altgeld shows at his Best. Even those who Are not personal admirers of him acknowledge that none better than he can express his personal views on political and economic topics. He is a Clear and distinct talker and is the do Light of the shorthand Man. The More intense and impassioned his utterances the More deliberate and slowly he Speaks. Quot Chauncey m. Depew so frames and delivers his utterances that cold Type is not unfriendly to them even with an absolutely verbatim report. While the delivery of or. Depew i of the Best his speeches do not depend upon that for their effect. Each speech is a masterpiece of the English language his enunciation is Clear and distinct and while he May attain great Speed his utterances Are void of that jerkiness which makes a slower speaker much harder to report. Quot governor Roosevelt is always prepared. He handles the English language As though he knew what he was talking about As he evidently does. He is not a fast speaker nor does he impress one with his oratory. He is a Straightaway talker of More than average ability and his sentences Are always Well rounded because of the preparation Given business opening Delirod.

A a we. In Elbr. 1 blk do Washington dec. 13.-Cjngressman Curtis of Kansas a member of the House lie publican caucus committee said to a parly of representatives of agricultural districts who were worrying about the banking provisions of the cur i Rency Bill Quot this Bill makes no Radical change in existing Laws. The sections in regard to the Gold Standard Are simply a reaffirmation of Are believed to be the Laws now in existence. Quot the first Section is a positive recognition of the Gold Standard in our Jinan Cal system and fixes the Gold Dollar of the present weight and a oneness As the unit of Alue. Quot the second Section provides for the payment of All government obligations in the Standarte fixed in the first Section and it requires All obligations both Public and private for the payment of Money shall be performed in conformity with the Standard so established Uniss otherwise provided. The Legal tender Quality of the it resent forms of Money is not interfered with. The non interest bearing obligations of the government known As greenbacks and Treasury notes and payable by their terms simply in Coin Quot have Long if not always been understood by their holders and the government to be payable in Gold Coin and have been so paid to the amount of Many millions of dollars. Quot Section 3 provides for a new division in the Treasury department to be known As the dision of Issue and redemption this change will be of great convenience to the Treasury department and it prohibits the use of any funds Cut Cpl for the purposes to which they shall be Seji scially dedicated. Quot the fourth Section provides a Complete safeguard to guarantee the per manent maintenance of the Gold Standard by authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury whenever it May be necessary for such maintenance to Issue and sell Bonds of the United states at a Low rate of interest i payable in Gold Coin and for tie Exchange of Gold Coin for any other Money issued or coined in the United states should the Secretary deem such Exchange necessary to maintain the parity of All the Money in the United states. The Bill provides that when notes and certificates Are exchanged for Gold they shall be reissued Only for Gold. Quot there is no danger of the greenbacks being retired under this Bill. It is True it is provided that when they Are All paid in Gold they Are to be retained in the tre Ajoury until released by the presentation of Gold in Exchange for them. The people prefer to use the greenbacks in Ordinary business transactions and there is no danger of their retirement. This Bill does not go so far on this subject As is recommended by the president in his annual message. I under this Law the demand for Eold will be limited to the foreign Exchange.?. This demand must be met under existing Laws and the change would in no Way affect the circulation of the greenbacks. The largest foreign demand for Gold in any fiscal year was in 1s 3, when the net exports were $s7,-506,463. Quot the present Law limits the Issue of coins to $o0,u00,000 but we have in circulation about $76.000,000 in such coins. There is a great demand for an increase in these coins and this Bill meets the demand. Beyond a doubt $150,-000,000 of these coins could be put out and when once in circulation they would stay there. Quot Section 7 authorizes the Issue and reissue of United states notes or Treasury notes in denominations of not less than one Dollar and pro ides that Silver certificates hereafter issued or paid out shall be in Demon nations Only of one two and five dollars. This gives these certificates a definite place in our currency and reserves to Silver the entire circulating medium of the country in denominations of under ten dollars. The Bill permits the National Banks to Issue circulation to the Par value of the Bonds deposited for their Security. This will increase the circulation at Over 3,goo different Points in this country. This would also allow an increase on nearly $30,000,000 on the Bonds deposited on july 1, 1s99. The Bonds Are abundant Security at their Par value and there can be no reason Why the increased circulation should not be allowed. Quot the Law repeals the tax of 1 per cent upon Bank circulation and substitutes therefor a tax of one fifth of 1 per cent on franchises of National Banks As measured by their capital surplus and undivided profits. The present tax is unjust because it Falls on the Banks which have circulation hence the Small Banks pay the most of it. If this Bill becomes a Law the Large Banks must pay their share. Quot the people will lose nothing by the change and the amount of taxes collected from the Banks will be just a Little More than at present. The tax under existing la is for five years ending june 30, 1899, was$9,469,948.12. The Bill authorizes the organization of Banks with �25,000 capital in communities of 2,000 people. This will give National banking facilities to Small it is the intention of the Republic Ati leaders to try so to adjust the organization and legislation of this Congress at to give expansion the congressional a i Well As political pre Eminence. To assure this the first Effort will be to get financial legislation out of the Way. There Are reasons of state politics and business for this announced policy. The reason of state is that the questions growing out of the Spanish War Are the most important before the country and should be intelligently discussed and acted upon As promptly As time and oppor Tunita May indicate the need of legislation. A the political Rea son is that the republicans Are satisfied to go to the country next november on the record of their party and its accepted policy on the question of expansion. They Are so confident of being Able to win on this that they Are willing to let the Money question a made a finished record instead of a living Issue. Unquestionably a few republicans favor keeping the financial matter alive through the next Campaign believing that party Success can be secured Only through the continued support of sound Money democrats and ardent honest Money republicans and independents. Their views will not however prevail and expansion will be made the slogan. The business reason for pushing through the necessary financial legislation is that any dallying or wavering by Congress May have a bad commercial effect. In the coming Republican Cam pain special stress will be Laid on the prosperlt7 of tie county. Republic a in do a by us a a Umi tits a Strong Gold measure will further stimulate business and that nothing will be so Good for republicanism As Well As the country and the people As the greatest possible commercial activity and Industrial Contentment. If House and Senate should seriously disagree As to their respective financial measures and prolonged debates should result the business world would naturally become nervous Over the outcome. The House financial Bill will be pressed to passage with As Little debate As possible. The financial experts Are disposed to accept it without demur and the commercial world has accepted it through Well known organizations. Therefore it should be passed by the House 1 before the holidays. In the Senate or. I Aldrich is in sympathy with the movement to secure an agreement Between Senate and House so that there May be i no More debate in the Senate Over the House measure than May be unavoidable. He knows that the president favors the House measure and he will do what he can to secure conformity to the lie publican program. As soon As the Money question shall be i out of the Way the floodgates a will be opened to expansion oratory. The coun i try will be instructed in the Issue of the i next Campaign. The opposition will be forced to discuss expansion or keep silent. As they Are half committed now. There i will be Little or no difficulty in controlling the trend of debate. Those who remember the Ohio platform will recall that an important place in it was Given to the subsidy Bill. It is no secret that the president and senator Hanna supervised the preparation of this platform and approved of All of it planks. Senator Frye made several speeches in that state in the course o which he gave reasons Why a subsidy measure should be enacted into Law. It would seem quite natural that this subsidy matter should be made part of the expansion policy but though the republicans will not cease to support it and i to urge the passage of a Bill to carry it. Into effect they will not go so far As to say that its passage is essential to i the Success of the expansion policy. They realize that there will be considerable opposition to the s measure Bluit there May to even so much Ilia it will l e impossible to secure its passage during this session of the fifty sixth Congress. I that shall he found to be the the measure will be allo sved to go Over to the Short session or if the a Public s shall Triumph next november. It May even be remitted to the fifty seventh Congress. A whether the decree of the Republican leaders that shall be the main i Issue in the next Campaign will be a Cei ted by the people remains to be seen. Poli ucal leaders no matter hew Ingen Lous or powerful they May be. Often fail to control he trend of political .li.-Cus-Sion. This Ivas notable in the Campaign of isfi6. The leaders had decided that the people should give their entire attention to tie Tariff and for a time this line Foh owed. Soon however the entire in Terett shit red to tie Money Niue tiai and one of tiie most noteworthy it campaigns i in the history of the country resulted i $ a a though contrary to the judgment of i most of the conservative members of the House politics demands that there be a i big Rivers and harbours Bill session. It is pretty hard for some members to go i Back to their constituents and admit that i they have succeeded in extracting no i Money from the Treasury for the special Benefit of their districts. Feeble protests Are being made nov it but to deny con Gressmen this personal Benet it tor i hts coming Campaign would make Many ugly i and unruly. I last session it was announced that there would be no Public building Bill this year Anu tiie Republican leaders i meant it. The members an preparing i their Bills with avidity just the same. I about next june the members who live i Public building Bills Jiading will be Able i to cast a majority vote and thei. Some i thing will have to be done tor them. By that time the correspondence with their constituents shall have accumulated to the extent that they Are prepared to hold up Che salary of the president of the i noted states if their Bills shall not secure due consideration. E a the year 1900 will break All naval records for the number of new ships of various types added to the service. It it were not for the delays in the construction of the thirty knot destroyers and the torpedo boats of less Speed practically Tho entire flotilla of forty five vessels of the kind would be a part of the Navy during the coming year. Five of the most powerful battleship yet undertaken will be ready for commis to ion during the year and if the Crews can possibly be obtained All will see Active service by autumn. In this class Are the Kearsarge a id Kentucky. Both have shown that in Speed and efficiency they outclass the men of War of the Oregon and Iowa class.
