New Typographical In I on.
< iiicago, Feb. 19.—Quite a number
of the members of the German Typo-
graphical Union of this city, have left
that organization and formed a new
union, incorporating under the name
of Typograpical Uuion No. 1, and
joining the Knights of Labor. They
have issued a circular, justifying their
action, saying the old union is con-
trolled by "reds," that strikes were
declared without reason, and money
intended for sick and unemployed
members was partially "sunk" in

Speaking of the political outlook for
l8-'0, Senator Baker said, of course,
that the Republicans would elect pres-
ident uud vice president The silver
men do not believe this, but Mr. Baker
thinks they are inspired more by en-
thusiasm than by couviction. Senator
lillman's speech was a bid for the
presidential nomination on the silver
ticket, and Senator Baker believes
that lie will be tho nominee.
Senator Baker looks for tho demo-
cratic party to disappear this year.
The Chicago convention, he thinks,
will split on the silver question, and
the silvcrites will go to St. Louis and
there unite with tho Populists and sil-
verites in the nomination of a candi-
date for the presidency who will stand
on a platform of Populism, silverism,
Dehsisin and all of the other isina
which just now aitlict the country.
The sound money Democrats, Senator
I Baker thinks, will vote with the Ke-
i publicans, although possibly some of
the more orthodox ones will put up a
ticket and vote for it, as was done in
