1. SGHU.1Z AGAIN
Secretary of the Treasury Crit
icised for Attempting to
MONEY FAR FROM THE ISSUE.
Financial Policy of the Government
Is Not Threatened I.epnblic
unisni and What Consti
tutes Patriotic Dutv.
New York. Sept. 13. Carl Fclmr: hat sent
to Lyman J. Cage. Secretary of the Treas
ury, another open letter on the Issues of
the present campaign. Mr. Schurz says. In
"The object of my open letter of Septem
ber 1 was, by offering a means of escape
from tha dangers pointed out by you. to
call public attention to the fact tli.it tha
present campaign Is by uo means u repeti
tion of that of lias, and that the money
question now ha3 no right to stand In tho
way of a fair consideration of other Im
portant questions on their own merits. I
thank you for the courtesy of your answer,
but I must regret that. Instead of favorably
receiving my well-meant suggestion. It only
fchows to what lengths partisan zeal will go
In the attempt to frighten the people Into
the belief that only Mr. McKlnley's re-election
can save them from general ruin, and
that no objection to him In any other re
spect must have any weight with them.
"To help on the alarm you quote from a
speech made by mo In 1S95. showing what
disastrous consequences I predicted would
be brought on by the election of Mr. Bryan.
I believed at the time, and I believe now,
that thosa consequences would have fol
lowed had Mr. Bryan been elected then,
after a campaign turning wholly upon the
financial Issue, with no existing law serious
ly to hamper him, and with majorities la
both houses of Congress prospectively at
his back. But you know as well aa I do
that circumstances have essentially changed
and that there Is an Immense difference
between a President so elected and free to
act and a President elected after a cam
paign run on other issues, with adversa
1 majorities In Congress, and bound hand and
foot by a law such as now exists, or as you
and your friends In public may still make It.
"To my suggestion that If the present law
la defective tha ReDUbllcan Congress and
administration would, before the Inaugura
tion of tho next President, have uniplo
power and opportunity to prevent the ex
ecutive action with its disastrous conw
quences, which jou ro luridly depict, you
object that Congress would Vrobably- find
It difficult to use that power owing to pos
sible obstructive tactics of the minority.
Lavr Conld Ue Perfected.
Whatever those wno Insist upon the neces
sity of Mr. McKJnley's re-election for the
preservation of the gold standard may eay,
my parliamentary experience teaches me
that If you, as Secretary of tha Treasury,
prepare a simple measure of remedial legis
lation, and have It introduced in Ccngress
on the first day of tho session, and the ma
jority presses It with a Elncere determina
tion to use all legitimate means to over
come obstructive tactics, the three months
of the session will be more than sufiiclent
to put through such a bllL
"1 repeat, therefore, that the Republican
majority in Congress not only can do this,
but you, Mr. Secrotary, then relieved of
our partisan campaign service, will urge
It, if you sincerely think the currency law
to be as defective as In your recent threat
of disaster jou represent it to be."
Mr. Schurz quotis btatcments mada by
Secretary Gage on July 15 nnd August 25,
placing them elde by side. He contends that
the "alarm blast" sounded by Secretary
Gage in the August statement is not in har
mony with the statement he made In July.
"You concluded the Interview of July 13
by saving that the law might Inde'd Us
subject to a tevtre strain from thti Novem
ber day of Mr. Bryan's election und March)
I. when the Treasury la turned over to him,
and the present administration would prob
ably have to use to the 'uttermost the pow
ers conferred by the new law to m ilntaln
the gold standard," owing to possible cp
prehenslons that might be created unions
the business community, whicb however,
does not Impugn your previous statements
as to the catety of the gold bti.idi.rJ uadtr
the law as it stands.
Thus It Is Mr. Gage, who brings agah.s:
himself the charge of spreading falso
alarms. In the one column we hear you as
the financier and the coi-sclenlious public
olllcer who feels it to be his duty not to
excite, but to allay unnecessary dis
quietude. " "Perverse Inceuulty.' "
"In the other column we hear the
partisan who. In order to terrify tho public
for the benefit of his candidate, decries all
manner of deviltry and trouble that may
happen under the law; who, when a way to
strengthen tho law ta pointed out to him,
as I did point it out, lightly puts that aside
as Impracticable and who suggests that the
possible successors of the present Presi
dent and the present Secretary of tho
Treasury may Intend deliberately to violate
tho law by tho cxcrcle of perverse In
genuity, all this to put the people In a
panicky mood and thus to dnvo them to
Mr. McKlnley as their only tavlor from u
vague sort of disaster.
"1 am certainly as anxious to maintain
tho gold standard as you are. 1 say this as
one who during more than a quarter of a
century has made the advocacy of n sound
monetary t-vetem one of the principal
parts of my publla activity, who looks
back upon that feature of his work with
especial satisfaction and who. If he has
somewhat, however little, contributed to
the accomplishment of good results, would
not lightly expose those results to jeopardy.
"You need only observe tho present con
ditions of tho Democratlo party to be
come convinced that the sliver movement
lias lost its vitality and that the talk about
sliver now is a mere rattling with dry
bones. Ue.nt up on one side to have an ap
pearance of consistency, and on tho other
to frighten people Into forgetting all other
questions and voting for Mr. McKlnley.

so oinsieneu tno principal cuy pari, in

curred under tho auspices of the Union Vet
William J. Bryan was the principal orator
of the occasion. The address was nonparti
san. The exercises were presided over by
, R. B. Hanna, Republican candidato for Con-
gross from this district. Mr. Bryan was pre
i ceded by the Reverend J. A. P. McGraw,
I who ofiVred praver; by Major W. W. Bar
J nctt, who participated In the Spanish War;
by Henry P. Sherr, Mayer of the city, and
by Governor Mount, tho present State ex
.Major Barnctt eulogized General Lawton
In strong terms.
Gov. Mount Condemned Filipino.
Tho Introductory portion of Governor
Mount's address was also largely biograph
ical and eulogistic The Governor then took
up the question of the Philippine War. Tho
Governor said. In part:
"If this cannon was not captured In a Just
snd humane war and from thoe resisting
the lawfully constituted authority over
these Islands, fighting the soldiers of the
Government that had liberated them from
Spanish thralldom. then where is the honor
of the capture and the glory of this g!ft7
Honor these Insurgents as patriots, and then
you Interpret wrongfully the words, the will
and the act of our dead heroes. Then this
service becomes a hollow mockery und this
trophy of patriotic valor becomes a monu
ment to the dishonor of our soldiers nnd
the shame of our country."
Further on he said:
"I trust I may rv.cver see the day when
I shall so far forget my devotion nnd my
toyaiiy to my country as to characterize
our soldiers as tho agents of oppression,
turning tho banner of liberty Into an en
sign of Imperialism, nor do I apprehend
such a consummation."
Ilrjnn'a Aonpurtlaan Address.
Mr. Brjnn made no direct reply In his
addiess to the utterance of Governor Mount
about the Philippine War.
"I was-Invited to participate in this re
union." Mr. Bryan began; "not as a can
didate for office, but as a citizen of this
Republic, nnd I am here to speak to you,
not as a candidate for office, but as a citi
zen" This remark called out applause.
Mr. Bryan then referred to his own record
as a soldier, raying:
"I can hardly say that I nm here as a
soldier, for I feel that my military service
was so lnslgnlflrant compared with tho
service of many who are hero to-day that
I am hardly entitled to be classed among
the soldlcra. So far as my title Is con
cerned, I feel that It Is hardly fair that
one should be called a Colonel who saw no
active duty, and who did not have his cour
age tested upon the battlefield."
Mr. Bryan then paid a high tribute to tha
character of the volunteer soldiers and thclr
"I hove supreme faith In the man who
flght3 when his country needs fighters, and
then works when his country needs work
ers." Further on he said:
"Vou have mot lo-day to do honor to the
memory of a soldier, of one In tho regular
array. We need so'dlers In the rojt-lor army.
We need some who are ever prepared by
military training for tho work of the sol
dier. Tho differences that are between ua
are differences as to tho number of regu
lars that we need.
"It Is not tho paco to-day to discuss the
size of our standing army; this Is not the
time to cichangc opinions as to how many
toldlers we need; but, no matter what our
opinions may bo as to the size or the stand
ing army, v.e uro all glad that when an
emergency Comes we find the soldier meas

Mr. Bryan said that there were victories
of peace as well us of war. and that ho
longed for "tho time to come when no hoj

The people of Fort Wayne turned out In

State Committee ta Meet There to
Effect an Adltmtraent.
Chairman Seibcrt has called a meeting of
the Democratic State Committee ror next
Tuesday in Kansas City. The meeting will
be hild In the Midland Hotel. The object
or the meeting Is to effect a reconciliation
of the differences existing between the two
divisions of tliu Kansas City Democracy,
each of which has nominated a ticket in
Jackson County, thereby imperiling the suc
cess of the Democratic party In the county.
Chairman Selbert, speaking of the work
cut out for the State Committee at Kansas
City, sxldi "Tha meeting has been called
for the purpose of enabling the committee
to reconcile the differences between tlie
leaders of the two wings of the party at
Kansas City, neither or which appears dis
posed to recede rrom the position it has
taken. I am not prepared to forecast what
action will be taen as a result of this
meeting further than to announce that the
committee will undoubtedly take such steps
as In Its Judgment appears necessary to re
sult In the greatest benefit to the Demo
cratlo organization. Irrespective of factional
"The State Committee, at tho Inception of
this trouble, refused to Intcrefere In the
matter, believing that the clashing Inter
ests could be harmonized by the parties In
Interest without any outside Interference.
When the State Committee adjourned sev
eral weeks ago. arter a brier Inquiry Into
the dispute, at which time It referred tho
matter back to the disputants with the ad
vice to settle the matter amicably between
themselves. It adjourned subject to the call
or the chairman, and no fixed date was
named ror another meeting. Saturday, when
vvc learned that the Kansas City leaders
had come to no agreement, we gave them
more time. As there seems to be no pros
pect or their reaching an agreement with
out the assistance or the State Committee.
I have called the commlttoe together to
consider the situation.
"From Information which has come to me
I am of the opinion that there will be little
difficulty In harmonizing the conflicting In
terests. Each of the divisions manifests a
disposition la make concessions, but Insists
that the State Committee and no one else
shall act as mediator. However. If we find
we are unable to bring the opposing Inter
ests together In a manner conducive to the
best results, I have no doubt the commit
tee will take steps to solve the problem
without endangering the success of the
party or weakening tho party organiza
tion." COCMTT DEMOCRATIC COXVUSTIOTf.

AT DEMOCRATIC HEADQUARTERS.
Many Visitors, All With Reports That
Make Chairman Selbert Smile.
Every visitor to Democratlo State head
quarters yesterday had a pleasant story to
pour into the willing ear or Chairman
Setbert. In each Instance the subject mat
ter ol the tale was the same, and tbe nar
ratives varied only in the manner or re
cital. It was a tale or Democratlo gains
and Republican defections In the counties
and districts represented by the visitors.
Among the prominent visitors were At
torney General E. C. Crow, Senator John
F. Morton of Ray County, Doctor George
II. Williams and Sam P. Jeffreys of Jeffer
son City, and VV. O. Peery. editor of tho
Evening Herald, of Mexla, Tex. Mr. Peery

Prominent Mlsaoarlana Addressed
Lnrce Crowds at Macon.
Macon. Mo., SepL 13. Yesterday's big
Democratic political demonstration was re
peated to-day, and the streets wero alive
with a throng of enthusiastic humanity all
A notlccabls feature under the bfcj tent
was the Intense desire of earnest men to
get to the front and listen to every word.
In the forenoon. R. H. Kern of St Louts,
who, in 1S9S, was the Democratic nominee
for Congress from the Twelfth District,
was the first speaker. He owns a farm In
Macon County, and said he would tender
his services to the Central Committee to go
over the county and talk for Democracy in
every school district during the campaign.
He ably defended the attack made by the
Republicans on "Poor Old Missouri and
showed by Tacts and figures that no State
In the Union had made better provision
Tor the education or children, offered better
Inducements to capital or better protection
to Its citizens than the State.
It was Mr. Kern's firt political speech
here, and R was a delightful surprise. He
was followed by James H. Whltecotton rf
Monroe County. Mr. Whltecotton said tho
Issues of the present campaign were more
of principle than business. It would nit
do to answer the query as to Injustice be
ing done In the Philippines to say that cat
tle and corn are up. The liberty of the on
coming generation depended upon the pat
riotism of the present
Messrs. C. A. Wlndle of Illlr.ois. E. H.
