in rhe end. To my mlnd we are faclng a very
grave ertsla at thla tlme. It le not a contest be?

John Harsen Rhoades. presldent of the Gree.n

was asked rhe same queatlon ae affeetlng the Dem?
ocratlc a.de of the altuaticm. "A very grave mlstake

phasis. "and you cannot put my objectlon too
Btrongly. Thls Is not a new issue before the Con?
ventlon ln Chicago. There has been a covert ad
voeeey of tt eovertng the pwt ten years. and llt?
erature has beer aeeretly Iwued by the ton. pol
sonlng the mlnda of the Amerlcan people w'.th
fftlse bellefs on the queatlon of money. The time
has come to squarely draw rhe llne, and lt Is not
to be drawn. to my mind. between parties. Thr
tlme has come for us all to rlse above party 00f>
I slderation. and to assume a patrlot'.c atf.tude As
I wrote to a frlend wm? tlme ago. lt ls not a party
lr?ue, but the moment ha* arrlved mhen we
ahould stand for proteetlon, sound money and the
I honor ot Che flag Why, you know. that part of
the Beeret llterature on BMs subject whleh has
I gone abroad accused the bankers of the Eist of
! coming Into colluslon to pTecipltate the panl" of
1882. It has tainted the mlnis of men every
j where. I am a Republlean and a consistent pro
tectlonist. and again lt la my flrm convK-tlon that
< protection and sound money musrt go hand ln hand.
I You oannot dlvorce them, yet I sinc.erely hope that
Mr. McKlnley will not draw tiie iaaue there. The
Republlean party must a-ssume hlgher ground than
f that. It must stand for sound money and no trades
| of any klnd ss a sop to the Popullsric element ln
, Congress. Make the aquare declaratlon and flght
lt out on patrlotlc llnes. and we wi.'l wln. I am
I not sure that a thlrd licket mgrht not ao compll
cute matters as to threaten the defeat of the
?ound-money laeue, and I hope the gold Demo?
crats ln Chicago will rlae above party feeling and
vote wlth the Repubhcans on thls question. W
need all the votes we can get. and If we move
along the lines I have suggtrsted I am sure we
will sweep these fellown clear oo: of exlsten-e. We
have them now all on one side, the Pcpullrts, rhe
Anarchlsts, the blathenk.tes., the scalawags, and
the thieves, and If we cannot suppress them with
paper ballots we tmall have to do It In the end
with leaden bullets. The question Is the most
momentous that haa dlsturbed this country slnce
the Convention of 1880, and that ("onvention led to a
four years' war. Let us vote to maintain the Na?
tlonal honor."
Henry Clews said: "All rhat is known about
Bryan ls through hls speech of yesterday. whlch
proved him to be a deaier ln words. and whlch is
evldently the only quallfioatlon that obtalned for
him the nomination. He la certainly too young to
have had any experience in statesmanahlp to exjulp
him for the Executlve offlce. He ia a good mar. to
be Baslly beaten by hla opponent. who has the ad
vantage of havlng a platform to stand on that
eommerids Itself to Democrats and Republlcans
allke who feel an Interest In perpetuatlng the fjor
eroment and malntair.lng its hlgh credlt and the
solvency of the Nation.
"We now have all there Is to come from the
Chicago Conventlon, the wonrt anMc'.pations of
which have been more than reallsed. The long
expected hes come at last, and, as usual. lt has
been discounted In advance ln the sto< k market.
The only thlng; now left to do ls to begln to dls
count the utter rout and defeat of the polltleal
rebels at the polls next Nove-mber, whlch should
be to BTCn eagacloua thlnker a foreg.r.e r m

ticlpatkon of good to come. aa we have dlscounfed
the ba-l that has come.
"The ChlcaR.. I'onventlon platform ls too t <[<

Many merchante ta the clty who have been

v*-n'1on ysstsrday and derlar.ni? that ihe Demo?

Some of ?h# men in the drygooda dtstrtcl v ?? r

"I do not reoognlse that eollectlon of Popullsta in
Chicago aa a Democrauc Conventlon. even If the
Democratlc label has been stolen." aald another
indlgnant Demoerat ln the street. "The or.ly way
to rebuke such a thaft ls to e'.ect McKlnley. The
old party llnes have be<n wiped out th-,s year. and
Democrats wh.i have not turned Anwhiste must
v.-ite the Republlean ticket or not vote at all."
A Trlbune reporter called at the atore of J.
Speneer Turner. at No. IH Duane-st.. and asked
ts see a member of the flrm The only member
who waa present at th* tlme was John A. Harden
brrgh. When asked aa to wheth ?r he waa a Demo?
erat, he sad: "Well. I harily know how te answer
that question. 1 do not know how to anrwer It
at the present t me "
"Were you a Demoerat before thla Conventlon,
and have you voted for Democratlc randidates In
former eleetlons?" was the next question.
The saswor came qulek ar.d sharp: "Tes. I have
l.oen a Demoerat. but I can hsrdly esll myself ?ne
now after the platform that has been adopted by
the Chleago Conventlon. The sound-money Demo?
era ts,' of both the Ea.st and West. can now do only
one of two thlnga They must StthST not vote at
all or else they must vote for the Republlean
ticket, The Conventlon at Chicago has been sn
unfortunate one for the country. It has not been
a true Democratlc Conventlon. What the sound
money Democrats will do, It is too early yet to tell,
but I do not believe that they will put another
esadldats ln the fleld. I flrmly believe that they
will let the CbtCSgO Conventlon have Its own way
and flght !U< own battles. and that they will either
not vote at all or vote for Mr McKlnley ard the
Rspubllaaa platform. It Is utterly imposelble for
them to vote for the platform that has been
adopted by those who are assembled In the I on
ventlan Hall at Chloago."
Another promlnenr merchant who was inter
rtswed by a Trlbune reporter was Frederlck \s.
Havr.es of Lawrence & Co., No. US Duane-st. He
aald "I fuess lt will l>e hard for you to flnd a man
wh.. will tell you that he is a Demoerat In this
nelsrhl-Kirhood to-day. None of them Ua-* to
a.-knowledg-e lt. Th* platform adopted by the Con?

pletely as tr.e araek on Kort Sumttr dld. By tbla
I 1 meaa the prominent men of the party. and the
I Democrats who are thlnklng men and who have the

j aboul the sltuatlon. And In that club there are?
I well, I was going to say a majority of gooA l>emo
j cra'.a. but ar least there Is a very aetlve minorlty.
I I dld not hear a eingie word about the eound
i money Democrats gettir.g together and puttlng
| foi ward a candldate of their own. and I dld not
hear a man say that he would vote tor the candl
I date who Is put before the country on the platform
that has been adopted by the Chicago Conventlon.
\ The general oplnlon waa that it would be Impo-ssl
' ble for an honest, patrlotlc man to vote for the
pr.nclples laid down In that platform, and that the
votes of gold Democrats would be eaat for Major
McKlnley and the Republlean platform.
' Those who were at the rooms of the club all
seemed to agree that rhe main lssue of the day Ib

At flrat there was no reeponse; then a heavlly
