Allied Silver Forces Will Hold Combina-
DENVER, Col., July 23.— Leaving Kan
sas City yesterday morning at 10:55 I
came through Northern lowa and Colo
rado on the Chicago, Rock Island and
Pacific, making it a point to ascertain, in
an unobtrusive way, the sentiments of
people on the nominations made by the
Populists at St Louis. I have to relate
two incredible things: First, that I found
but one outspoken goldbug among the
many travelers on the train ; second, not
one in ten made the remotest reference to
the Vice-Presidential candidate. Great
interest was shown in the fact that Bryan
had been nominated by tne Populists and
1 never heard a doubt expressed all day
long as to bis election.
Continuing my review of the events
which made the second Populist Conven
tion just held at St. Louis significant and
unique above any other National conven
tion yet held in this country, and which
plainly indicates the inauguration of a
new era in our political history, I draw
attention now to the notable departure
in campaign work made at the great Dem
ocratic ratification meeting on Saturday
night at St. Louis, only a fe.v hours after
the Populist Convention had nominated
Bryan and adjourned. Note the signifi
cance of the tact that that meeting was
called and presided over by ths chairman
of the Democratic National Committee,
Senator Jones of Arkansas, it being the
first formal ratification meeting he has at
tended. We now come to note the speak
ers selected by the chairman to address
this chief Democratic ratification meeting.
First, we have an able and broadgauge ad
dress by Chairman Jones, which was con
spicuously free from partisan spirit. Then
came Bland, who spoke on Bland and sil
ver. These are two great Democratic
leaders. They were followed by Senator
Allen, chairman of the Populist National
Convention, which had just closed its
work and adjourned. He was introduced
as a Populist by Chairman Jones, and
made a Populist speech. He was followed
by C. E. Towne of Minneapolis, vice-chair
man ol the Silver convention, a silver Re
publican. Then came Senator Stewart
and Jerry Simpson, noted as Populists,
followed by ex-Governor Johnson, a lead
So far as the chairman of the National
Committee can set the pace and outline
the plan of campaign, there is to bean
actual union of allied silver forces, and the
platform is to be occupied at campaign
meetings by speakers of all the allied
forces. It remains to be seen if State
Democratic managers are going to act in
good faith toward these allies, as Chair
man Jones has so conspicuously done.
Good faith and fraternal spirit in actual
practice alone will make this a campaign
of honesty and faithful results.

ST. LOUIS, Mo., July 28.— Senator Jones
of Arkansas returned here from his visit to
Mr. Bryan at Lincoln last evening, and
left on a late train for his home at Wash
ington, Ark. When asked about the au
thenticity of the telegram sent out by the
Associated Press, purportinc to have been
sent to him by Bryan to be red to the con
vention, he replied: "I don't know any
thing about it." The printed telegram
' was shown him, but he would not read it.
The reporter then began to read the tele
gram to him.
"I never received that," he interrupted,
after a sentence or two had been read.
"It is a stagger at it, but it is not the tele
"\vili you give out the real telegram?"
"No, I haven't that telegram to give
you. You can find Mr. Bryan's attitude
in his published interview of Saturday
night. I have nothing more to give out,'"
he said as he went to his sleeping-car.
In consequence of Mr. Jones' departure
there will be no conference for some time
between himself and the members of tne
People's party executive committee.

Controversy in Wisconsin Over the Dele
gation's Action at Chicago.
MILWAUKEE, Wiß.. July 28.— The sil
ver delegates |to the Democratic conven
tion yesterday afternoon gave out their
address to the public, replying to the letter
published by the gold delegates, headed
by Vilas and Bragg. It is devoted mainly
to answering the statements promulgated
by the gold men, but goes to some extent
into the merits of the silver question. The
point is made that the silver delegates
obeyed their instructions until the chair
man of the Wisconsin delegation refused
to allow the vote of the State to be cast for
any Presidential candidate, ana that
they then obtained permission from the
presiding officer of the convention to cast
their votes. The letter is as follow*:
The Democratic party ever ha? and to the
end of its existence ever will advocate honest
money and oppose its debasement. To assert
that the Chicago convention declared In favor
of compelling the citizens of the United States
to receive dollars of only one-half value is a
wicked slander. The Democratic National
platform does not submit to the American peo
ple a new aid untried system of finance for
The great Hamilton and greater Jefferson
framed the law at the time of the birth of this
Nation, which gave to both gold ana silver the
right of free and unlimited coinage and made
both these metals fundamental and redemp
ton money. The integrity of this American,
this Democratic monetary system, was relig
iously preserved by all American legislators
from 1792 to 1873. In this latter year, when
the attention of the American people was di
verted from the subject, dishonest legislators
(surreptitiously demonetized silver— the peo
nlc's money. The great American Nation,
without its knowledge or consent, had its
monetary system changed from bimetallism
to gold monometallism. The function of meas
uring values supporting commerce and credit
imposed upon gold and silver was by the de
monetization of silver shifted to gold alone.
The importance of gold was increased twofold,
as the demands upon it were doubled, and as
a result all commodities of the world declined
in value as expressed In golden dollars.
The merchant who has had bankruptcy
slowly but Burely creep upon him in spite of
his every effort and economy; the tiller of the
soil who has seen the products of his farm
gradually reach a price below the cost of pro
duction, in spite of his ceaseless care and toll ;
the man who depends upon his daily labor to
furnish him necessaries of life and appeals in
vain for the Drivllege to do work— all ask why,
in a land of plenty, in a nation peopled with
willing workmen, in a country of limitless re
sources, why is there widespread business dis
aster and cruel want?
History records prosperity from the birthday
of America to 1873 under a bimetallic system
of finance. A silver dollar at all times during
that period equaled and in fact exceeded &
gold dollar in value. The day Congress by law
closed the doors of our mints on silver and
said thereafter gold shall measure the value of
all things, even silver, then it was that gold
grew dear and silver cheap, and as silver de
preciated so has the price of alt commodities
fallen as measured in gold until ruin stares
great and free America in the face. The Demo
cratic National Convention, in response to the
call for help from the people, has promised to
reinstate the money oi tne constitution and
thereby lift the golden yoke from America's

The meeting was largely attended and
much interest manifested. The action of

A Prominent Nebraskan Says That

WASHINGTON, D. C, July 28—The
National Silver party has established its
headquarters in the Corcoran building,
Washington. George P. Keeney of Cali
fornia, an organizer for the Silver party
and an attendant upon the St. Louis con
vention, is now en route to this city and
will assume charge of affairs when he ar
rives. It is the intention of the commit
tee to take an active part in the cam
paign by sending out literature and speak
ers. There is some talk of practically
merging the Silver committee with the
regular Democratic committee and using
one as an auxiliary to the other. This
consolidation, however, cannot be ar
ranged until after the Democratic National
Committee shall have held its forthcom
ing meeting here. The last named com

Representative Smith of the Twentieth
Illinois District spent some time to-day at
Republican Congressional headquarters.
He believes that public sentiment is rap
idly arif ting in favor of the Republicans.
The Republicans of his section have fallen
into line and normal conditions now pre
vail. He feels sure that McKinley and
the entire Republican ticket will be given
its oldtime majority there. Mr. Smith
has no fears for the State being led away
by either Populism or Altgeldism.
Vice-Chairman Apsley was at his desK
after a brief trip to hi 3 home. He pro
nounces the statement that free-silver sen
timent is growing in Massachusetts to be
nothing but rubbish and nonsense. The
laboring classes of that State will have
nothing to do with the heresy, and many
of those now employed in factories, who
under ordinary circumstances vote the
Democratic ticket, will this year be found
in the Republican ranks. The working
man above all things else desires to see
the return to prosperity, full time, higher
wages and fair profits for his employer.
W. ¥. Gurley, a prominent attorney and
campaigner of Omaha, was among those
who called on the Republican committee
to-day. He expects to go on the stump and
work for the success of the ticket chosen
at St. Louis, and believes that with an
active, thorough, carefully conducted cam
paign Nebraska will select Republican
"In Nebraska, as much as any Western
State," said Mr. Gurley, "the silver ques
tion has been discussed in all its phases.
The sentiment in favor of the free coinage
has reached its climax and is on the wane.
Bryan made his last campaign for Con
gress on ihe silver issue alone, and came
so nearly being defeated that he refused
to again be a candidate. In his campaign
for United States Senator he stumped the
State with Mr. Thurston, and both speak
ers paid especial attention to silver. As a
result of the canvass a pronounced Repub
lican Legislature was elected. 1 think that
is a good straw to indicate the direction of
the wind. In that election Populists and
Democrats combined in many districts
upon legislative candidates, but notwith
standing that combine were unable to con
trol the Legislature."

Xew Tork and Brooklyn Democratic
Delegates Faror Bryan.
NEW YORK, N. V., Jnly 28.— The
World to-morrow morning will say: The
members of tlie Democratic State Com
mittee were interviewed by World re
porters yesterday on tne political outlook
in the State. They were especially asked
if they favored the indorsement of the
Chicago ticket and platform by the State
Convention, which meets in Buffalo
September 16. A poll of the committee
resulted as follows:
Members of committees, 50; in favor of
indorsement 24, opposed to indorsement
4, non-committal 22. Many of the com
mitteemen from New York City and
Brooklyn were among the non-committal.
It is believed, however, that when the
convention meets the delegates from New
York and Kings counties will be solid for
indorsement of the Chicago ticket. There
are about eight members of the State Com
mittee opposed to indorsement, but not
all of them wish to goon record at present.

expectations the meeting of the Demo

and silver factions came together and will
work for the election of the Chicago nom
inees. This result was brought about by
the refusal of the committee to accept the
resignation ofsQhairraan Elliott G. Stev

assurances that Sewall would withdraw,
he refused to give a direct answer. He
insisted, however, that there would be but

PETTY STRIFE IN HAWAII.
Frivolous Charges Are Preferred

The Captain Will Likely Be Found
Guilty, but the Public Is
With H m.
HONOLULU, Hawaii, July 21.— The
arrest of Captain John Good on the 13th
inst., which at the time caused consider
able surprise, but wa% thought to be of
little importance, has developed the fact
that more or less friction has occurred in
the military service since the Government,
rather hastily, it is thought, imported
Colonel McLean, late of the United States
naval service, to take command of the
forces here. Colonel McLean has been in
the country only a few months, during
which time, it is alleged, he has been bis
own worst enemy and has made few
McLean was imported from the United
States on the recommendation of ex-
Minister Thurston shortly after the last
revolution to unseat the republic. He
arrived, it is charged, with prejudices
against Captain Good, and the present
court-martial trial is tne first overt effort
to force Captain Good out of the service.
This statement comes from officers high
in the service who helped establish the
republic side by side with the arrested
Three charges are entered against Cap
tain Good, all of which Ere considered to
be more or less frivolous by military men.
It is quite likely the court will be obliged
to find the captain guilty, as the charges
mentioned can be proved. In speaking of
the trial, which begins to-night, one of the
court officials said this morning:
"That is just it. We will likely have to
convict the captain under military rules of
saying ti at if the Government reduced
salaries in th 9 army they should get less
work; thut he (Captain Good) did not
want any more d tailor dri;l, etc. But
what then? We simply cor.vict him for
telling the truth, and must also find that
Captain Good, if guilty of indiscretion,
has done nothing to warrant his dis
missal from the service. It is unfortu
nate that Colonel McLean, a comparative
s'ranger, should carry personal spite so
far as to embroil the entire military."
This statement represents the general
feeling outside of perhaps Colonel Mc-
Lean and a local newspaper, to which, it
ia publicly charged, the colonel has fur
nished some very queer statements of the
origin and progress of toe disagreement.
Captain Good is well known here, ana it
will be hard to influence the public against
him, no matter wnat action is taken by
Colonel McLean or what result is reached
by the pending court-martial.

Import Duties Compared to the Esti

BALTIMORE, Md., July 28.— At the
Lyceum Theater to-night the Prohibtion
party, through Rev. O. W. Stewart, chair
man of the notification committee, ap
prised Joshua Levering of his nomination
as candidate of the Prohibition party for
President. Mr. Stewart, in his notifica
tion speech, said the party should con
tinue to fight the saloon with its attend
ant distresses. Mr. Levering in reply
read his letter of acceptance, which was
Oliver W. Stewart Esq. and gentlemen of
tho committee: It is with feelings of deep
emotion that I stand in this presence this
evening to accept the nomination for the
Presidency of the United States which you ten
der me on behalf of and by the authority of
the National Prohibition Convention, which
recently aasembled in the city of I'ittsburg.
I beg to express my sincere appreciation of
the honor thus conferred and to assure you
that it is esteemed all the more highly be
cause of the unanimity of action which
marked the convention. Such an honor is
worthy the ambition of any citizen of this
great Nation, but to my mind it is to be
douoly appreciated when tendered by the
only political party which has had the courage
to stand openly for the protection of the home,
the womanhood and the childhood of our
country against the terrible ravages aud de
struction of the legalized liquor traffic.
The platform adopted by the convention
meets my hearty approval, and though based
on the single issue is in reality sufficiently
broad to allow all to stand on it who are op
posed to the saloon and its consequent evils,
regardless of their views on any of the other
public questions of the day.
It is true— andno thinking man, regardless
of his surroundings or residence, can for a
moment doubt it— that very many of tho peo
ple of our beloved land, and especially those
engagei in industrial and farming pursuits,
are suffering from the general depression so
widely prevalent at the present, and also that
there h»8 not been a time since the memor
able days just preceding the breaking out of
the Civil War when these difficulties weighed
so heavily upon the people, or when there wes
so much unrest and dire foreboding for the
future as exists to-day.
The products of the soil, the mainstay of the
Nation's prosperity and wealth, are bo low in
value in many instances as not to pay the cost
of production, leaving nothing for the labor of
the toiler or for the capital invested. Many
persons hold the opinion that the cause of all
tills trouble is overproduction. But can such
an explanation be true? Is not the thought
an impious one ? Can any one who believes
in a beneficent Creator believe that he be
stows a bountiful harvest to be a curse rather
than a blessing to mankind? No, no: perish
the thought! The reasou of ail the prevalent
trouble in our fair land to-day is not over
production, but underconsumption. That
being so, where is there a cause which pre
vents the consumption of the necessities, to
say nothing of the luxuries, of life comparable
to the liquor traffic?
V.'c are told by the advocates of one of the
political parties that a high tariff is the pan
acea of all our ills, and yet the average annual
receipts from customs for the three years end
ing June 30, 1894, when the McKinley tariff
bill was in operation, were only $171,000,000,
less than $250 per capita of our population.
Others tell us that the free and unlimited
coinage of silver will be the cureall of the
evils affecting our people. It Is strange such
an idea should ba entertained, when the tact
is recalled that the total output of silver in
this country for the last year was only $60,
--000,000, a sum much less than the annual
product, of the familiar barnyard fowl. How
utterly insignificant are either of these figures
compared to the $1,200,000,000 which, it is
reliably estimated, is the direct yearly tribute
the peopie of this country pay to the support
of the liquor traffic— a stupendous sum and so
large as to be difficult of realizing. It is
nearly twice as large as the aggregated capital
of all our National banks, or, to state it more
plainly, it is equal to about 75 per cent of the
entire money, gold, silver and paper currency,
of the United States. Let this vast sum of
money, which is now spent yearly in this way
and for which no value is received, but, on
tre contrary, is only adding to the suffering of
the people in varied and manifold forms, be
turned Into the channels of legitimate trade,
in the purchase of those things which will
brinir comfort and happiness to the home and
family. Then I belisve the troubles which are
now weighing so heavily upon them will be
largely things of the past, and until it is done
no real relief can be expected.
While thus emphasizing the results of the
liquor traffic as it exists to-day in our midst,
and the absolute necessity for its suppression
for beverage purposes, If peace and prosperity
and the blessing of God are to rest upon and
abide with our people, I don't underestimate
the fact that there are other questions of grave
importance over which the public mind is
seriously agitated, and which are being
pressed for speedy settlement. There is the
question of a stable and at the same time an
elastic currency, equal to the demands of busi
ness in every section of the country, and yet
every dollar of which should be of equal value
and the whole based on a standard equal to the
best in the world. The United States cannot
afford without dishonor to have money bear
ing its stamp inferior to that of auy country
on the globe.
The question of maintenance of the credit
of the Government, on which itc honor is
based and for which every one worthy of the
name of an American is or should be pro
foundly jealous, is one of vast importance.
Again, a proper adjustment of the tariff, so
that labor can have its just protection without
at the same time giving undue protection to
the manufacturing interest at the expense of
the great consuming portion of our people, is
worthy of profound consideration and early
The question of favoritism in legislation,
whereby trusts, monopolies and corporations
are fostered and protected to the detriment of
the interests of the people at large, is a vital
one and should have earnest and prompt con
sideration as a matter of common justice to an

ous foreign countries as well as between some

fecting the best interest oi all the citizens of
the country demand attention.
For myseif, 1 can only say that should the
voters of the United States see fit to call me toj
the duties and responsibilities of tlje high and '
exalted position of the chief magistracy of this j
Nation, the greatest on the lace of u»e»ww»ti, I |'
can only promise, in the fear of God and in re- j
liance upon the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to
discharge these duties to the best of my abii- ;

good of the people of every section of our land
without favor or partiality.
I now leave the matter to the decision 01 my
fellow-citizens, to be expressed at the ballot
box In November, and to the guidance of him
"who is the final arbiter of all things."
UNION MINERS BARRED.
Four Companies of Telluride District, Colo.,
/aaue a Notice to This
TELLURIDK, Colo., July 28.— A repre
sentative of the Miners' Union has been
in this district for several days organizing
the miner.-;. Rumors of the movement
having reached the ears of ihe big opera
tors, they issued a formal notice to-day to
the effect that no union miner would be
employed. This was signed by the Tom-
Boy, the Smuggler- Union, the Japan ana
the Columbia- Menona companies by their
respective managers. The reasons stated
were that the highest wages have been
paid and that miners' unions always cause
trouble. To-night the miners are holding
a meeting up at the mines in Marshall
Basin and trouble is undoubtedly brewing
for to-morrow. Over 500 miners are em
ployed on these four properties.

FLORIDA'S RACE RIOT.
Precipitated by a White Man Hugging a
JASPER, Fla., July 28.— Advices from
Haggard's turpentine still, the scene of
the race riot Saturday night, state that
matters are in an unsettled condition and
that there may be further trouble. All
the negroes have left the turpentine farm
and Haggard will be forced to close down
at a loss of thousands of dollars. There is
considerable feeling against Haprgard on
the part of some of the whites. They
seem to think that Haggard sympathizes
with the negroes and knows where some
of them are secreted.
A committee of white men waited upon
Haggard yesterday and told him that he
must produce three of the negroes by
Saturday. The rot was precipitated by
John Green (white) hugging the wife of a
