"My Investifations ln Ohio. Indiana and Ken?

however, there is llkely to be a divided delega

stntiment is in a majoriiy. and delegates from
raost of the Southern States Wlll be strong
supporters of a fre*-colnage plank at Chicago
and the nomlnatlon of a free-colnage candidate.
I am unabie as the result of my trip to ex

ConTention by the sound-money men. It is sur
prtslr.g to a man of ordlnary commerclal train
ing to liaten to the arguments whieh are prov

3outh. A large proportlon of them are for free
colnage becau.se they belleve that it Wlll enable
thera, through an inflated eurrency. to lift thelr
aortgages and obllsratlons at the expense of
thelr creditors. The actlon of the Senate of the
I'clted States during the last sesB'.on has also
vorked to the advantage of the free-coinuge

an excellent Impreaalon. He is lik?-ly to gain
