Near tho fort there is a place where, owing to the position of the islands and the peculiar conformation of the shore, there is always a deep, strong eddy, no matter which way the tide sets.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 1, 1897, Dave Hlli, has discovered that the free silver movement was a counterfeit political issue.

Both mean much to this commonwealth. The gold democracy is here to stay, and is perpetuating its orga nizations throughout the country. This wing of the democratic party will be in a healthy co...
