Helterates Hit Statement and Suy-

nt Chicago Too Mucli Significance
Uuk llecu-Attnclied to Ills Decision
' to Attend the Contention, Ueixiys.
New York, June 21 William C. .Whit
ney has seut tLe following to the press:
"I rind It Decessury to make a public
statement embodying my views oC the
situation, to correct misconceptions, and
to bare the time now occupiedin answering
questions. Far too great importance
has been attached to my decision to go
to the Chicago convention.
"I have been practically out of politics
for Tour ears, iiuu thc-r eare now tuniiy
Easteru .Democrats who can do much more
than I can for the paity. 1 shall t
assume any position or leadership, My
decision to stay was simply baseu on the
duty of every person who believes In the
party for Its. principles to staud by and
lend his aid aud take his chances when a
great crisis Is upon it.
"There can be uo question but that
a great crisis is upon the Democratic
party. Fundamental differences of prin
ciple exist inside the party, marked almost
by sectional lines.
'The great question to my mind is
whether the party meets In ccuventlon now
as In 1SC0, with issues anfl differences
that are for the moment Irreconcilable.
For the past fifteen years leaders of
public opinion in the fcoutli and West have
been advocating as the great remedy for
existing ills the lrte coinage of silver at
16 to 1. with or -without the ct-operation
of other nations.
OUR PEOPLE DISAGREE.
"It has come to be believed in there
quite generally and conscientiously. A
large majority of the delegates to the
caning Democratic convention have teen
elected by the people fcr the purpose of
Incorporating that doctrine into the plat
form of the Democratic pa rty. Our pec .pie,
on the other hand, entirely disagree Willi
these views, and Lclleve almost universally
that it will bring general ruin to the busi
ness and prosperity of the country.
Jt Is feenied a rew drctrme when pro
posed to be incorporated Into the platform
of the national Democracy. It is true
that In no i rcvious platform of the party
can It specifically be found. Consequently
no party obligations heretofore assumed
oblige them to sutscrlbe to it,
"Under these circumstances If the re
sult of the Democratic convention should
be to establish as the issue of this cam
paign the free coinage of silver at a
ratio of 10 to 1 independent of other
nations, in the intensity of feeling ULely
to ar.se it is to be seriously apprehended
that a disruption or the Democratic party
might occur. Certainly no substantial fol
lowing could be secured for the o'octrine
among eastern Democrats. They might
not vote the Republican ticket Tor otter
reasons, believing that the Republican
party stands for other issues that are
defimental to the country, but the Demo
crats In the east would not. In my opinion,
vote for it.
OBJECT OF FREE COINAGE.
"Tli.s movement for free coinage pur
ports to have for its object the establish
ment and maintenance of gold and s!ler
as the money or the country, u on equal
terms with each other, and at a parity
of purchasing power. If by the proro'ed
measure that object could be Eccured.
there would be no substantial disagree
ment in the party. Every national Demo
cratic platform that has heretofore spo'-ccn
upon the subject haB declared for both
gold and silver money. It is our traditional
policv. Uut the maintenance of the double
standard at the present time is not a
question of desire; It Is a question of
nbility. The commercial value of silver
has declined greatly In the-markets of
"Whatever the causes are and whoever
Is to blame, the fact is that silver has
declined, and free coinage now at. 16 to 1
Is the same as our offering for all the silver
Jn the world about twice what It Is selling
for in the market. International exchanges
have to be paid in gold. And it would seem
plain that If we, under these conditions,
open our mints to the free coinage of sliver
and gold at a ratio of comparative value
which Is largely at variance with the com
mercial value of the two metals, we must
take the entire silver surplus ourselves,
and alone maintain its parity with gold,,
or else we shall go to a silver basis'.
"Francc,inl87J, closed her mintsagalnst
silver and abandoned the experiment,
deeming herself unequal to the task alone,
and at that time It was much less difficult,
for silver was then at par with goU at the
ratio In use, and even England's mints In
India were open to the free coinage of silver.
If the experiment of maintaining the parity
of the two metals at a coinage standard
was .difficult then, it would seem to be
positively hopeless now, without Inter
BELIEVE IN A DOUBLE STANDARD.
"Germany, France, Belgium, Italy and
Austria believe in a double standard and
desire to establish It, but no oue, two or
three of thctn deem themselves able to
maintain the double standard, even with
the co-operation of the United States. If
the result of the measures proposed would
be to carry us to a silver basis, it is not
felt here that such a proposal would be
In line with the principles of the Demo
ocratic party. It Is not the Joint standard
with the purchasing power of the dollars
at parity with each other, but It Is chang
ing from one standard to another and that
change being to a depreciated coin.
"And it Is also felt, aside from any Demo
cratic principle to sustain it, that you
cannot have such a disturbance of values
as would come from charging from a gold
to a silver basis, without such a shock to
confidence; the hoarding of gold and con
traction of your available circulating
medium, as would bring, in the opinion of
our people, Ibe worst panic and distress
we have ever seen In this country.
"The creditor classes are prepared for it.
Tiie obligations, mortgages, railroad and
otherwise, are quite generally payable In
gold. Debts would still have to be paid
In gold, but, wages in silver. The suffer
ers, as usual, being the poorer classes.
"This movement purporting to be In the
Interest of the Joint standard, comes at a
most inopportune time, in my opinion.
"There Jias never been a time when the
prospect" of international action favorable
to the Joint standard were at alias promis
ing as at the present moment. But at)
ill-advised.unsucccssful attempt here would
discredit the cause the world over. What
Is the situation as regards this?
, - IS NOT THE SOLUTION.
"From the discussion of the last twenty
years.lt has come to pass, that among the
persons In Europe, who are trained, recog
nized scicntistsupon mouetaryand economic
questions, scarcely one Is not at the pres
ent moment advocating the desirability
of the joint standard, as the real solution
of the monetary difficulties of the world.
This Includes every professor engaged In
leaching or lecturing on these subjects In
the universities of Great Britain.
"They are agreed upon the desirability
or It, and that It Is entirely practicable.

Canton, O., June 21. Major McKlnley
passed his first Sunday as the Republican
Presidential candidate lu much the same
manner as previous Sundays,, had been
spent by him. ',.
Theprlnciptl change was In his surround

home sheltered benei.th Its roof an unusual
number of occupants. There was Mr. and
Mrs. Abner McKlnley of New York, Gen.
Rus-scl 11. Hastings, wife and son, of the
Bermudas, formerly United States marshal
for the northern ilistrict of Ohio and earlier
second lieutenant of McKinlcy's company

Then there were several, members of the
family who caiueiu to speu'jparcoftheduy.
The people respected the sanctity of the
day and the quiet of the family, und aside
from Dr. Phillips, the family phy-1clnti,
whomerelydroppedln to make sure that nil
was well, there were no callers, save the
visiting newspaper correspondents.
In the uiorulug: Major McKlnley at
tended Divine worship, us his custom was,
in the First Methodist Church. He was
accompanied by Mrs. Hastings and by
Captain Heistand, U. S. A., who, for
several years, served as inspector general

They came In just a moment before the
services began, and Mrs. Hastings found
a seat with Mrs. McKlnley, the Major's
mother, rilling the family pew, and the
two gentlemen were given scats Just across
the aisle. The McKlnley pew Is located
well to the front, being the sixth fioni
the pulpit in the center block. The
audience was not crowded, but well filled
with the usual congregation.
Major McKlnley at church was so much
the accustomed thing, that not even as
a Presidential candidate did he attract
attention beyond probamy a score of
strangers, and most or these were visiting
newsiuiper men. The First Methodist
Church stands on the corner of Tuscarawas
and Cleveland streets, right In the center
or the business part of the town.
It Is an attractive substantial stone
structure with a modest tower at the
corner. Its interior shows the cathcJral
style, modified by modern demands for
comfort and convenience. Tl.e main
entrances are ut the sides 6f the pulpit
and organ loft on the north, so that per
sons face tLe congregation on entering.
The opening words of the ser
mon were the raster's only direct
utterance uion the subject promi

of his hearers: "We have Just jussed

Interesting Incident or the Cuban war,
In which Mr. J. B. Euttls, the American
ambassador to France, was instrumental
in saving a French citizen from death
at the hands or the" Spanish military
authorities In Cuba.
Home time ago Mr. Eustls received from
America a cablegram sent by a prominent
compatriot stating that a jouug French
man had been arrested by the Spaniards
and was about to be shot on account of
bis sympathies for the revolutionists. The
prisoner's brother had formerly saved the

steps he could to sdve the prisoner from

the ministry of foreign afrairs and ac
quainted the minister with -the news ic
had received. Neither the foreign minister
nor M. Nisand, the permanent thief of the
department of political affairs, wore even
aware that a French citizen was on the
eve of execution lu Cuba, und dispatches
were forwarded to Madrid aud to the
French consu'ate In Cuba without do-lay.
Shortly afterward Mr. Eustls had the
satisfaction of learning from the minister
that the negotiations with the Spanish
government had resulted in the young
The thanks of the French government

GREETED WITH CHEERS.
Tills expression was received with cheers,
which were prolonged many minutes.
In addition to this the patriotic associations
In all parts of South Germany are sending
congratulatory messages and addresses
to Prince Ludwlg In great profusion.
The Catholic jmrty are cspscially taking
thelea J In the resurgence orihePartleulariht
iu their denunciation of the persistent
attempts to rorce the Prussian regime upon
the independent states or Germany.
The lruu government, in Uie meantime,
is viewing the agitation lu the South Ger
man stales very quietly, and the Berlin
newspapers treat the mutter lighll), as
though the particularist sentiment in tl.e
south or Germany were a quantity not
worthy or serous coLsideratiou.
The National Gazette characterizes tLe
excitement as reurlle, but however lightly
the government and tl.e press may view
the agitation. It cannot be dismissed in
that tu sliiurr. The laotls that the present
outburst Is due to a feeling which has long
been In the air of South Germany, where
tbe people and the princes alike have
silently resented the autocratic acts aud
Leglslatlvc'proposuts.ilkc the wine tux,
which hit South Germany hard without
touching Prussia; the vexatious treatment
of the fcoutli German lines by the Prussian
railways, anil the dealings between the
postal authorities of Prussia ard the South
German states, have combined to keep
ONLY A FAMILY SQUABBLE.
The present agitation, which is giving
free vent to long-restrained sentimenis.
Is likely to do good to tbe whole country,
and, after all, it Is a family squabble
which dees not iu any way nrfeot the
unity of tbe empire.
In the meantime Prince Ludwlg. whose
violent words at the banquet were the
signal for the popular outburst of feeling,
has found It prudent, or at least convenient,
to go to his hunting seat In Hungary to
remain until the excitement Is allayed.
It is said by those who arc in a position
to know that his departure ror Hungary
was taken with a view of avoiding the
rousing ovations which tbe people or
Munich and other places were preparing
to give him.
The nomination of Mr. McKlnley for
the Presidency or the United States by
the Republican convention held in St.
Louis is hailed here with satisfaction so
far as the security of a gold currency
is concerned, but there are fears that his
election would mean the enactment of a
prohibitive tariff by the American Congress.
Several Berlin exporters who have re
cently visited the United States for the
purpose of studying the situation with a
view .of devising means to give impetus
to German trade, have returned here with
the conviction that no improvement can
expected within a measurable time.
However, it Is only German drugs, colors
and chemicals that are stationary. Kid
gloves a nd paper goods find a ready mar
ket In the United States.

CLEVELAND GOES FISHING
This Tim 3 He Sails for the Sounds
and Salt Water.
Mr. Carlisle nnd Dr. O'Reilly Were
His Only Companions nnd They
Went on the-Maple.
The President Is eff again on a f'shing
excursion, this time to the teeming waters
of the South Atlantic. He will try con
clusions with the drum and saltwater trout.
It will be recalled that Ills recent trip
was to the Hurrison preserves, near Lees
burg, tbe statistical returns from which
varied from zero up to thirty-five of the
finest fish In Virginia.
Mr. Cleveland bus chosen as his com
panions on this outing Secretary of the
Treasury Carlisle and Dr. OKelUy. with
the latter of whom the President had
'fairly good luck on his several ducking
expeditions to Quantico and Widewater.
Mr. Cleveland's plan has always con
sistently been to steal a march on the
enemy, and hence the profound screcy
with which It's movements on these trips
liavc been conducted. He succeeded very
well in all of his designs evcept in the
case of the last expedition, when the
Virginia trout evidently got a tip about
his plan of campaign.
This time it can confidently be expected
that Mr. Cleveland will be eminently suc
cessful and will come near depopulating
the deep waters orf Morehead City. There
Is no cable communication with the un
suspecting foredoomed victims, so they
might Just as well Jump aboard after the
fashion of the com that would come down
when Daniel llc-one went a gunning for
that kind of meat.
The party stole away on a very love-ly
night on the Maple. This vessel cam"
up in the afternoon and lay in mid stream
until about 8 p. m.. when It tied up at
Stephenson's wharf nnd coaled. At alout
9 o'clock the President's carriage roiled Kp
to the wharf entrance and out of It
stepped the President, Mr. Carlisle and
Dr. O'Reilly. In a few momenu they,
were safely aboard and the Maple sleamel
i"ne President Intends to have three or
four davs of good fishing and on bis re
turn wjjlJ)e oft to Gray Gab'.es. It is
liossible thathe pirty may return to
Washington on Wednesday night. Tbe
traditional fisherman's "luck is, how
ever, the controlling circumstances In n
trip of this kind when the fishermen
start in with pvervthing in the world to
tnelr credit except the fish. It isn't every
fellow In tills world who goes a fishing
with the United States Treasury at his
back and the United States Navy under

THREW LYEINDK FACE
Fighting Sergeant Burned in
a Speakeasy Raid.
GREER ALSO GOT A DOSE
Laura Buclrner Was Prepared nnd
Let the Officers Dave the Fear
ful Dose Full in Their Faees-For-tnnutely
MlsMed Their Eyes-Dnler
Badly Burned In the .Neck.
Police Sergt. John C. Dally lies on a
cot at the Emergency Hospital nursing
sundry wounds, while Policeman Greer
Is tucked in bed at home engaged In the
same pleasing occupation.
Neither officer Is badly hurt but what
makes them more sore than the wounds
Is the way they received them. Police
offu:ersin Washington have been shot. cut
slugged, clubbed, sandbagged, kicked and
maimed and wounded in other routine
ways, but It remained for Greer and Daly
to be laid out by a bath of concentrated
lye. This Is how It happened:
Sergt. Daly and a squad of officers from
the Fourth precinct raided the siieakeasy
conducted by Laura Buckner, colored, at
No. 630 Delaware avenue southwest, yes
When the officers entered the house the
fighting sergeant of the Fourth told the
Buckner woman that she bad been selling
whisky In violation of the law and was
under arrest. For reply he received a
glassful of lye In the face, being given the
lie direct, so to speak. The woman bad
attempted to blind the officer aud had
her aim been better or Sergt. Daly less
active she would undoubtedly have ac
complished her purpose.
For some time past Sergt. Daly has had
Information that the Buckner woman was
running an unlicensed bar at her house.
He waited until his evidence, was complete
and he was Certain of sufficient witnesses
to secure a conviction. The time set for
the raid came yesterday and the sergeant,
accompanied by Policemen Greer, Robert
son, Bauer, Mueller and Neale, went to
the house shortly after 2 o'clock. Sergt.
Daly sent Officers Bauer, Mueller and
Neale to the rear door with Instructions
to affect an entrance and arrest evervone
found on the premises.
CAUGnT IN THE ACT.
The serg'ant himself, with Officers
Greer and Robertson, went to tbe front
door. The entire party was In citizen's
dress. Sergt. Daly pushed open the door
and stepped quickly inside, followed by
Robertson. Greer saw an open window
looking out on the pavement, and placing
his hands on the window sill, vaulted into
the room. The Buckner woman was Just
in the act of serving a party of colored
men who stood in one corner near the rear
She had evidently lcn taken completely
by surprise, and ber first Intimation that
anythipg was wrong was Policvman Greer's
sudden appearance through the window.
She turned on him with a whisky g'.ass!n
one baud anil a bottle in the other, but
before she could speak Serge Daly tepied
forward and said, "We are officers and
you are under arrest."
The woman did notrep'y, but halt turned
toward the kitchen. The men in the room,
however, made a break for the door, and
the officers had their attention diverted
from the woman for a moment. Quick asa
flash she darted toward the kitchen, and
running to the cuptmard snatched a glass
from the shelf and returned to the front
DASHED IT IN niS FACE.
Walking up to Sergt. Daly she dashed
the contents into his face. The (lass
contained a mixture of lye and hot water,
and had evidently been prepared for Just
such an emerg.ticy. The burning stuff, hot
as fire, spattered over the officer's face
and neck, searing tbe skin and nearly
Greer and Robertson had followed the
men into the rear yard and pulled them
off the back fence as they were attempting
to escape. They returned to tbe room to
find' their jseTg".int staggering about the
floor with bis hands to his face. He cried
to them that he could not see, aud told
them to seize the woman.
Greer turned to obey the command and
was met by another glassful of the burning
liquid which struck him in the mouth and
lower part of the face, burning him badly.
The lye, however, did not reach his eyes
and he pluckily grabbed the woman before
she could do further damage and threw
her across the bed, holding her down until
his comrades came to his assistance.
Meantime, Sergt. Daly, although suffering
acute pain, continued to direct the move
ments of his men.
The Buckner woman was sent to the
station and her house searched for hidden
liquors. A large basketrul of stuff In
bottles was foun-J and the house was closed
and the windows barred, the sergeant
locking the rront door himself. A physician
who happened to be passing took tba
Injured men to a drug store, where their
injuries received a temporary dressing
which partly rehevej the plin.
WOUNDS NOT SERIOUS.
As soon as possible they were sent to
Emergency ncpltal and a more thorough
It was found that the contents of the
glas3 had struck both men squarely on the
chin, spattering over their faces. By a
miraculous chance their eyes escaped. A
large lump of lye bad become wedged be
tween Sergt. Daly's collar and his neck
aud had burned a great hole lu the flesh.
His lips were fairly parboiled and the
upper part of his face was blisleicJ aud
Policeman Greer received the scalding
dose on his mouth and ohiu. His tongue and
lips were blackeueJ and burned in a
frightful manner, aud the lower part of
bis face was a mass of blisters. The cloth
ing of both men was covered with lye and
wherever a drop fell it cut through the
heavy cloth like a knife. Sergt. Daly's coat
especially, was hardly more than a bundle
of rags, aud every cut was as clean as
thougli made with a knife. It .was stated
Isst night that both men were doing as
well as could be expected, but It will bo
many days before they can return to duty.
