According to the World's story, for the
first time In twenty years the Repub
lican national committee completed Its
work, paid all its debts and had a sur
plus. Money flowed Into the Republi
can coffers. From the East the big
contributions iu round numbers were

clude subscriptions from Bethlehem,
Ilarrisburg. Mauch Chunk and other
towns. The Roston subscriptions in
clude many Xew England cities. Chi
cago contributions were disbursed
chiefly in that city nnd State, and only
a small part passed through the nation
al committee treasury.
Within the past week about all the
accounts of the national committee
have been settled, and Treasurer Cor-
Mark Great Heavens 1 Mack, that
nelius X. Bliss finds himself in posses
sion of a surplus. It is hard to find out
just how much money Messrs. Hanna
nnd Bliss have on hand. Neither will
tell, but Mr. Bliss denied a couple of
days ago that it was about 100,000. A
well-known Kepublican leader, who
has been close to the national commit
tee during the campaign, told a World
reporter that the balance on hand after
all expenses were paid would be be
tween ?75,000 and ?90,000. This will be
used to carry on the permanent organ
ization and to prepare for the battle of
1900. "So national committee," he
6aid, "ever had such an enormous finan
cial resources at its disposal." The dis
semination of literature was the heavi
est Item of expense. This was prac
tically all done through the Chicago
Bureau presided over by Perry Heath.
Through this bureau there was sent out
In one of the biggest weeks of the cam

piece covered with a U-cent stamp. This
meant an expenditure of $00,000 for
postage stamps alone. These are large
Mr. Hanna has at last told how he
"done it," and we are so glad. Most
any old manager will know what is
needed in the next campaign and will
be happy in the thought that the
amount of It is so small. He confesses
that It took fully $1,400,000 to elect
McKinley, including ?GO,000 a week for
postage. It makes the public pulse beat
with n quickened thump and the public
face light up with a glow of pride to be
thus taken Into the Great Man's confi
dence. But, not satisfied with a general
statement, the Republican chairman
goes further and points out the sources
of his revenue, saying where the big
contributions were made.
It will be noticed that Cleveland, Mr.
Hanna's home, is not in the list, which
may lead some to declare that the Great
Organizer was rather too well known
among his neighbors to canvass them
for subscriptions succ!ssf ully. A most
gratifying feature of the whole thing
Is tho reflection that Iiepubiioan spell

were paid for their services. Schurz,
Cockran, Reed, Thurston and ail that
outfit not only worked for nothing but
fo:md themselves, so to speak. Of
course, they were entitled at least to
their railroad fare, but the Republican
campaign committer was so poor It
couldn't afford the outlay, and they
had to either buy tickets or walk.
Of course, Mr. Hrwra doesn't say
this, but his figures do, and, unlike
Mr. Hanna, figures can H. To ex
amine them: The active work of the
Republican committee began the first
week in July and ended Nov. 3 cover
ing a period of about eighteen weeks,
during which 00,000 per week was

Uncle Sam's tariff on the work of edu
cation ?1,0S0,000, leaving ?320,O0O for
Terry Heath's salary and other ex
penditures. Xow, ?1,OSO,000 wortli of postage
stamps would distribute In eighteen
weeks 3,375,000 pounds of literature,
and we are quite sure that It cost at
least T cents a pound to print, fold and
distribute even such light, airy and
useless stuff as was sent out by Mr.
Hanna's committee, which would leave
a mnryiu of only $151,250, with Mr.
Heath's salary still unprovided for. De
duct $1,250 for gas bills, $5,000 for Ter
ry Towderly and $45,000 for the New
York office, then there Is $100,000 left
for distribution among 10,000 McKinley
clubs throughout the country. This
balances the sheet and leaves the Can
ton excursionists in the dark as to who
provided "them tickets," "those beers"
and that badge.
Let the Work Go On.
The defeat of John C. Fremont for
President In 1S5G did not stop the anti
slavery discussion. It went on with
lncrenslng vigor, and In 1SC0 as a re
sult Abraham Lincoln was elected Pres
ident. The campaign of 1S50 was the
first direct straggle with the slave pow
er, then as firmly intrenched in the con
trol of the Federal Government as the
money power Is to-day. The first con
test resulted In defeat. The second
The silver fight Is very similar to that
which was waged against slavery- '-The
declarations of the Chicago platform of
1890 were almost as new as were the
declarations of the Republican plat
form of 1850. Both of them caused a
new alignment of parties. The new
Democracy with the silver banner has
gone down In defeat In Its Unst cam
paign. So did the Republican party
with Its anti-slavery banner. The few
weeks devoted to the campaign of edu
cation, were not sufficient to convince
the people of the real purposes of the
slave power. But the discussion went
on, and Buchanan's administration was
nn object lesson. So the silver discus
sion will go on, nnd so McKlnley's ad
ministration will be nn object lesson.
Before his time Is half expired people
will recall the assertions nnd predic
tions of the silver orators and the sliver
press In 1896, and wish they had voted
for Bryan. Firmly they will resolve to
vote the silver ticket in 1000. By that
time the iron hand of the money power
will have been making itself more gen
erally felt, and It will not be Incased

will see them plainly enough and eager
ly await the opportunity to get to the
ballot box. The result in 1000 will be
a silver victory and place the powers of
the Federal Government In the hands
of those favorable to the restoration of
silver to the coinage.
AVhile the presidential compalgn has
gone against the free coinage forces,
there Is hope iu the fact that the num
ber of silver Congressmen has been
largely Increased. With this fact as
an incentive, the campaign of silver ed
ucation should be vigorously continued.
The American people are both intelli
gent and patriotic. They have not had
time, however, to be educated on this
Issue. Great and influential forces have
been arrayed against the cause of bi
metallism and these have won In the in
terest of the single gold standard. In
four years their eyes will have been
opened and the restoration of silver
will be accomplished. Denver News.
Has Only Begun.
"The fight has Just commenced," says
Mr. Bryan. "If the Republican party,"
says Mr. Moreton Frewen, "warned by
the narrowness of its victory, will work
for currency reform, good results may
be near." John Sherman expresses
the hope that "the present gold stand
ard will be maintained." Chairman
Jones believes that McKinley will be
compelled to "bend all his efforts to
ward securing an International agree
ment" The English Bimetallic League
thinks the Republicans will have to
work for International bimetallism.
These expressions give some idea of
the manner in which the election of
McKinley has been received. If they
indicate any one thing with certainty, it
is that the silver question is as far
from settlement as it was on the morn
ing of Tuesday, Nov. 3. They mean
that the new administration must face
the same discussion that Harrison nnd
Cleveland have faced.
If Mr. McKinley is true to Ills party
platform, there are two things that ho
must do--malntalu the present treasury
rulings which have fastened a gold
standard on the conntry in defiance of
law, and promote an international con
ference. There are a large number of
persons who favor the restoration of sil
ver, but who honestly believe that it
can only be accomplished by means of
an international agreement. This class
of blmetallists will now have an oppor
tunity of testing the accuracy of their
belief, and of doing what they can to
secure favorable action on the part of
the new administration to this end.
They will probably find that all this
talk about international bimetallism
is a sham and a fraud, and intended
merely to divide the people and cover
up the real purpose of the money pow
er to fasten the single gold standard on
all of the commercial nations of the
earth. Finding this out, these interna
tional blmetallists will have one of two
courses to take join the gold standard
forces, or fall back with the real silver
party, which assumes that there is but
one way of securing international bi
metallism, and that is by restoring sil
ver In this country nnd thereby com
pelling other nations to do the same.
"Tho fight has Just begun." This is
the real feeling of the millions who cast
their ballots for Bryan. They do not
propose to cease lighting until they
have won. Their cause is just. It is
the cause of civilization and of human
ity, and will be fought to a finish.
Whether the restoration of silver comes
through an international agreement, or
whether it comes by a vote of the people
of the United States nnd without await-
ing or asking the consent of any other
nation, come it will, arid the gold power
may as well so understand It.

THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT.
Some Interesting Facts About the Tall
Shaft of White Marble.
The distance at which the monument
is visible has always been a matter of
debatable interest with Washington
people. Not a train approaches the
city, nor a boat speeds up or down the
Potomac, but carries a group of people
anxious to see at just what point they
can last sec the white marble against
the sky as they depart or first find it as
Probably the greatest distance at
which the monument is seen is from
the summit of tho Blue Ridge at Snick
er's Gap. a uibtauce of about forty
three miles in an air line. The eleva
tion there is 2,C0O feet above the Po
tomac. The mountaineers years ago,
with their keen eyes, trained to long
and sharp .s hf iu the mountains, de
tected the white spot gleaming on the
horizon, and they can always quickly
(ictcrmiue its place on the horizon line.
But to the city folKs, however, the lo
cation of the while shaft is not an easy
matter. Thousands or Washington peo
ple every summer invade that region
as summer hoarders, to subsist on fresh
milkanil fried chicken, and incidentally
in their excursions up on the mountain
to get a sight of the monument. On
clear days it is distinctly visible, es
pecially to those who arc familiar with
it. precise location. ".ut it is more
easily seen at sunset than at any other
hour, as fife sharp reflection of the
sun's rays brings out the white surface
of the marble. The mountain people
arc only too glad to point out the mon
ument to their visitors, and usually tell
them the secret 0y which they can
themselves locate it. This is by find
ing first on the horizon line the slight
elevation of contour presented by Mun
son's Hill. Then, slightly to the left,
perhaps one degree, "there it is. The
point from which the monument was
first seen from the Blue Ridge is the
mountain farm of Mr. Louis P. Shoe
maker of this city, and the place is
called "Monument View."
One of the most singular stories that
may be told about the Washington
monument is HaruTy credible, yet it can
be vouched for as perfectly true. There
are hundreds 01 iadies in Washington
who wear upon their hats the plumage
or the entire skin of a bird which has
lost its life flying against the tall mass
of marble iu the dimness of twilight
or daybreak? Every morning one of
the watchmen who spends the night
in the monument finds about its base
quite a number of birds who have lost
their lives in this way. This mortal
ity is not limited to any ono species,
but includes nearly all the birds known
In this region. Strange to say, few En
glish sparrows iose'ineir fives by flying
against the monument, but the beauti
ful golden finches, cedar birds, star
lings, tanngers, grosbeaks and many
others of bright plumage and great
rarity have been found. The watch
man takes these birds up town to a
taxidermist, who stuffs and mounts
the rare specimens, which are sold for
a good round price to collectors, and the
skins of those less rare are prepared
for the milliner. Hardly a morning
comes that there are less than a score
of dead birds about iT.e T.ase of the.
Another queer thing to know about
the monument is that its height and
width vary. It Is taller iu summer
than in winter, and in the latter season
its width on the south side is about an
iuch greater than on the north, east or
west side. This is due to expansion
uuder the heat of the sun's rays. This
phenomenon was determined by Capt.
Greene during the erection of the shaft.
Plumb 114 s were hung at each corner
of the marble wall, and the plumb
"bobs" or plummets were suspended in
pots of glycerine and molasses. Across
the top of each pot was laid a finely
graduated steel bar, and three times a
day an army engineer "took off" the
registration th' made of the expan
sion of the walls. It was held that the
plummets moved precisely with the
points at which the plumb lines were
attached to the top of the shaft, and
the glycerine held them firmly without
vibration or oscillation, so that the of
ficer could note any change of position.
All these registrations, twice a day,
every day of the year, were recorded
iu a book during the seven years that
were occupied in finishing the monu
ment. Washington Star.
American Hardwoods in Europe.
The demand for American hard
woods in Europe "is growing, and oak
lends the foreign shipments, although
tulip, poplar, ash, gum and black wal
nut, whenever a good quality can be
secured, arc in some demand. Euro
pean consumers like the quality of
American oak, and since it is known
to be plentiful here, it will probably be
in increasing demand. Cottonwood
has been shipped to Germany in con
siderable quantities, where cheap wood
is required for furniture aud other
uses. Much of this lumber is forward
ed from New Orleans, and since a
great part of the oak, ash, poplar, Cot
tonwood and other timbers demanded
by the foreign market is in the South
ern States, is not improbable that lum
ber for foreign markets will be largely
shipped in future from Gulf ports. Iu
speaking of this matter The North
western Lumberman says that the Eu
ropean market requires lumber cut of
exact thickness and of achate length,
irinmutl so as to have the butts square
and true. Space for piling iu the yards
of the Old World is an object, so that
random, uneven lengths are objection
able, aud, since the foreign buyer in
sists that he shall have just what he
bargains for, quality should be strictly
attended to. Garden and Forest.
Licking Postage Stamps.
Licking postage stamps is a very com
mon practice, aud one that but few
people would associate with danger of
disease of any sort. Of course, Illness
traceable to this cause is rare, but that
It docs sometimes occur no one can
doubt. But, aside from the disease
germ theory or abstaining from this
practice, it certainly is not a cleanly
habit nor is it a necessary action. It is
a good deal easier and safer to lick the
envelope, or. what is better, moisten
the corner of it with finger-tips and
water, and then apply the stamp. A
wet handkerchief will dampen the en
velope sufficiently to make the stamp
adhere. While great care is taken in
tfse preparation of the mucilage that is
put upon the postage stamps, it is im
possible to insure the perfect health of
the persons who handle them. An em
ployee with nn iuoculable disease
might spread his ill condition through
a whole country. It may not be neces
sary to warn every one, but those who
have never had their attention called
to the subject will not fail, upon a mo

Mr. Green was in the American office

praise of these- pills. His story told In
his own words is about as follows:
"About sit years ago I suffered from
an attack of grip, which resulted in loco
motor ataxia. From this I suffered a
living death. I was for a long time un
able to help myself and was a constant
burden to my family. One day I read
in the Weekly American about Dr. "Will
iams Pink Pills for Pale "People and I
concluded that ns it had helped others
similarly atllieted it might help me. I
went to It. AV. Smith, our druggist, at
Alexandria, and bought a box of the
pills. The first results were promising,
and I purchased several more boxes.
They had a wonderfully reviving influ
ence on my system. From a helpless in
valid not able to dress myself. I have in
creased in strength and health and now
do my ordinary work about the farm, and
walk to Alexandria, which is about a
half mile away, every day. I tell you
those pills have done me a wonderful
amount of good, aud I am willing to take
my oath of that."
