nndpredicted that the vote will be in the neighborhood of 1000000 in 1U04 It is known that there are hundreds of thousands of voters of all classes who are in thorough sympathy with the par ty theoretically but who have not yet come to the point of voting with it A striking evidence of this fact was exhibited during the Federation of Labor meeting at New Orleans when the So cialists attempted to commit the organ ization to their propagenda They did not succeed in their purpose but they made a most surprising show of strengthThere is much discussion now as to the effect the new party will have on the old political organizations It was at first assumed that the Socialist vote came chiefly from tint Democrats but this presumption is not borne out by close analysis On the contrary it looms up largest in Repuulican strongholds Massachusetts Pennsylvania and the large cities such as New York Chicago and others where there is u large laboring population gave most re cruits to the new party It is among tho workiuguicn that the movement is strongest and it is this class that has turned the scale against the Democrats in the lust two presidential campaigns It would seem therefore that the Re publicans are likely to suffer more from the third party than the Democrats AN INTERESTING RELIC From Fulton Commercial Capt Foil Collins has in his posses sion one of the projectiles of a famous piece of ordinance that figured in the civil war and whose history is some what interesting When the Confeder ates fortified Columbus they placed on the bluff above the town a large rifle Cannon which they named Lady Polk after Mrs Polk widow of James K Polk Durinc the battle of Belmont this gun did important service in repulsing tho Federal attack and driving them to their transports After the battle the gun having been left loaded with a 144 pound solid shot and the gun having cooled off the shot could not be extracted GeniI Polk ordered the gun fired as the only resourceWbenI woundIing1 Polk himself was knocked senseless The profectile Capt Collins has was one of the solid shot of this famous gun brought away during the occupancy of the Southern troops by Uncle Sammy Ray a red hot rebel who brought iit awdy as a souvenir and kept ic during his life time at his home Afterwards some mill men got hold of it and use it as a weight on their mill carriage and when they moved the mill it fell1 into tho sawdust pit and remained there 25 years It was reported to Camp Pirtle U C V by comrade Humphrey who lives near the place who had had placed a stake near

have become so accus tomed io serving their paleface teach ers that they are more than willing to enter the household as servants Herein may lie the solution of the servant girl questionfor a time at least says a western exchange Indian youths are strong agile and if brought up by the right kind of methods are perfectly willing to work They are healthy and quick qf limb This makes an excellent combination for a senant Statistics of the Indian taken recently show that of the 45000 workers among the various tribes 3000 of them are employed as helpers in the houses of palefaces You never see
