States Senator John Martin, of Topckn,
who has been for many years? an Inter
esting figure In Kansas politics, arrived
In the city yesterday. Senator Martin
lias come out hero In the Interest of the
Hutchinson IJeervolr and Cnnal Com
pany, of Arizona, of which he Is presi
dent, and of tho Central Arizona rail
way. The senntor, who Is a Democrat,
ppcalss in no uncertain way on the sil
ver question. He said: "There cannot
be the slightest doubt about silver be
ing the lending question in the next
campaign. Can you Imagine any other
question of Importance? Tho tariff Is
out of tho way. If the Republicans: set
control of the next administration there
may be a little revision of tho tariff, but
nothing essential. They cannot light a
campaign on the foreign, policy. That Is
n question that could not become of im
portance except In time of war. Having
these questions out of the way and hav
ing no local issues that can divide the
parties there Is no question left except
the silver question.
"In the Democratic convention they
nre going to have a row. The party Is
now practically in regard to the silver
question just In the position it was In
ISM In regard to slavery. Two-thirds of
tho members of the convention or more
JY.Ul he comprised of silver men, and It
will jiclopt a platform In favor of the
free coinage or that metal on a ratio of
1C to 1, and will nominate a man in
sympathy with that platform, but not
Mr. Cleveland. Ho never was a silver
"In case the Democrats and Republic
ans both adopt platforms and miilie
nominations lit favor of gold there will
be some sort of an independent move
mentsomething like the Sibley move
mentfor sliver, and silver only, and I
believe the Populists will indorse it and
lay aside for the time their other Issues.
"If tho Democratic party does not
ndopt a platform In favor of free coin
age of silver It will not carry a single
state in the Union. Senator Morgan, of
Alabama, told me lately that on any
other sort of platform the Democrats
would be swamped by tho I'opullsts
oven In that state. Senator Harris told
mo tho same thing of Tennessee, and
Cooper of Georgia and Daniel of Vir
ginia." There Is no baking powder which pro

Topeka, Kas., May 7. (Special.) With
the purpose of lltidlng out as near as pos
sible the attitude of the I'opullst party
upon the question of sliver, a reporter of
the Journal to-day Interviewed Senator
Potter. As the senator Is recognized as the
oracle of the party In the West, a good
deal of importance attaches to his utter
ances, l-'or Instance, when the Kansas
statesman says that no nation should make
money out of any substance having value
as a commodity, he declines for that same
old Hat system of paper currency, upon
which the Populist party was born.
Throughout his tolls to-day he kept the
Idea to the frotit that the Populists were
as much opposed to sliver as to gold, except
as a temporary expedient for paying ott
bonds. The reporter opened the Inter
view with the question:
"What do you think of the silver move
ment, senator? '
"It Is simply ono of those peaceful reso
lutions which upturn civilized countries at
stated Intervals. It shows that the people
are beginning to think, and It means the
beginning of n progress which will over
turn the money power."
"What will be Its political effect?"
"Vou observe that In nearly all of the
states that the Democrats are calling com
mittee meetings or conventions. ThU Is the
work of free silver fellows. 1 believe they
will secure control ir the party, ami when
they do drover Cleveland and Ids slnglo
standaid fellows will march Into the ranks
of the Itepublluan party. The ItepubUcnn
party, 1 llnuly believe, will make Its next
campaign 011 what It is pleased to term
'honest money,' but which in reality is cold
niono-inetulllHin. So the Unit political ef
fect will be the utter destruction or tho
Democratic paity. Then such of the He
publlcans as believe in free silver will com
mence to look around lor a landing place,
and eventually the tree silver Democrats
and the free sliver Republicans will come
together 011 a common ground with the
"Does the Populist party really believe
In tree silver. Senator'.'"
Hesitating a moment, the senator re
plied: "The government has many bonds
in circulation which are p.iyaldu in coin.
So long as we must pay In coin we need
silver to pay It hi, anil to this end, the
Populist parly has indorsed free sliver.
I do not believe that the money of any
nation should be constructed of any mar
ketable commodity, for so sure as It has
a commercial value, It will bo used by the
money gamblers to unsettle our lluauclul
"Do you believe, with 'Coins Financial
School,' that the opening of the mints to
free coinage of silver would raise the
value of silver to l.'il an ounce?"
"Ye, and no. 1 believe that gold and sll
ver would come together, possibly by gold
coming down and sliver going up to meet
it! but m any event tho costlier metal
must always yield to the cheaper when
brought In competition us money."
"Then freo coinage would result In sil
'Isn't it a. fact that Populists are op.
posed to all metal money and wnnt sim

"I said before that tho money of ihe
country should not bo made of anything
having a market value, as an artlclo of
commerce outside of its uso for money.
Tho Populists stand for a good many
things. First, tho rates of Interest should
bo reduced, so people could ntford to pay
it. and then the money gambling might be
stopped. I warned them In congress when
the llrst bond issue was made that the
money changers would soon force un

Jefferson City, Mo., May '.-(Special.) It
Is probable that Governor William .1. Stone
would glvn one year's salary If that letter
to Senator llallard, therein ho said no
principle was involved In fellow servant
legislation, but that the passage of the
law might Hcrvo tu put the Democratic
party 1111 top. hail never been mado public.
PolltlcH rim higher In the house to-day
than at any time timing tho extra session,
and tho itcptilillenii members rang the
charges on the telt-tulo sentenco In the
The tiouble began when Senntor David
son, of .Marlon, Democrat, presented a
resolution calling upon the labor commit
tee to report at once oil house bill No, ',
the rallioad fellow servants bill. The Itc
puhllcans have made up their minds to take
up ono thing at a time, nnd do not propose
to lie coerced Into considering the fellow
servants bill until the elections bill has
been disposed of. They therefore opposed
the resolution to a man.
In presenting his tesnlutlon. Davidson
mado a bombastic speech concerning the
duty of legislators. Ho said that when the
house met and spent two minutes In prayer,
ami then adjourned to go llshlng, It broke
two of tho ten commandments. First,
"Thou shalt not tako tho name of the
Lord, thy dod, in vain," nnd the second.
"Thou shalt not steal." He declared that
tho general assembly was stealing from
the state by delaying action on needed leg
islation, This all sounded very well, but every
body hern knows that tho Republican house
stands ready to pass a railroad fellow
servants bill at any time It can get through
the senate and become a law. Hut they
know, too, that the Democratic senate Is
prepared to adjourn at any moment, and
they propose that nothing shall Interfere
with the passage of an holiest elections
Robertson, of Johnson, took up the cud
gel laid down by Davidson. He lead that
section of i.ovcrnnr Stone's letter which
said no principle was Involved In fellow
servant legislation, and asked why this
hu'-.e. He asked Mr. Davidson If he be
lieved a principle was Involved, or If he
simply wanted to put tho Democratic party
on top. The Democrats have had twelve
years In which to puss a fellow servants
bill. Why hadn't they passed one? lio
eatiso they were on top then. That was
why. He ridiculed the sudden spasms of
virtue that had seized the Democrats. They
expected the Itcpiihllcaus to do In two
weeks what they themselves couldn't do
in twelve years, and that with a Demo
cratic senn to lighting the bill.

A bitter partisan light was precipitated in
the house thin morning when I'reeman, of
.Miller, presented a resolution looking to
ward cutting olf the .'. a day allowed mem
bers of tho state board of equalization.
The members of that board are tho gov

paid out $17, lit In per diem to the board,
it asked that the governor be reipiested to
enlarge tho powers of tho assembly, under
his message, so as to allow the repeal of

Jefferson City. Mo.. May 7. (Special.)
When Atkins, of Webster, dyed his whis
kers a crow-black lust week, ho placed
thorns In Ills legislative -ath, Yesterday
Mr, Atkins took on a humorous streak.
For two days about 100 cadets from the
state university, who were hero on a holi
day, have been tramping about tho capital
grounds. Yesterday, just after the house
convened, these young men In uniforms
Illed Into tho gallery uml took seats, i'lvo
minutes later Atkins was on his feet. JIo
sent a resolution to the cltrk's desk. It
declared that, whereas, dovernor htpno
was maintaining an iirmed force of militia
on the canltol groundr. evidently for the
purpose of Intimidating the members of
the general assembly into passing u fellow
servants bill, and for the purpose, there,
ufter. of protecting the general assembly,
It was the sense of the house that a pledge
should be mudo to the governor that they
would support any measuro he desired if
the militia was but withdrawn.
This resolution created quite a laugh, and
much discussion, more or less pertinent.
Finally Tartar, of Lawrence, who Is not
known ns a humorist, arose to a point of
order. He said all this discussion of Mr.
Atkins resolution was out of order, for
he had been reliably informed that the
gentleman from Webster had recently

that there Is un actual basis for the re

that brokers representing this syndicate

syndicate. In order to divert the
stream from its usual channels leading
Into flu' Hulled States mints the private
purchaser!, have been obliged lo pay n
premium of l!'. In Hi cents. The prem
ium paid for most of the gold wits IS
cents, but so anxious have been the
buyers to Increase their lines and get
everything In sight that they have
marked up their quotations during the
last few days. At tho present lime they
aro getting practically the entire output
of the United States, excepting from tho
extremo Western coast.
Alany long-headed men In Washington
nnd Wall street, who are familiar with
the methods of the parties composing
the syndicate, have Jumped to the con
clusion that the foundation is being laid
for another bond deal before congress
meets again. The last bond deal of r,i,
IWO.000 has been pretty well closed out,
over J5l.0ilil.0il0 iu gold having been paid
out of the lil.iuiO.OOii, and It Is generally
believed that thu entire deal will be
cleaned up before the 1st day nf Au
gust. Under the terms of contract with
the treasury department tho Alorgun
Hothschlld syndicate lias an option 011
nny new bonds that may be Issued by
the government prior to October i, next.
The treasury Is absolutely In their
hands until that date. If from natural
causes or through chicanery nnd manip
ulation tho administration is obliged to
Issue another batch of bonds to main
tain tho gold reserve, the sale must be
made- to tlio s-ynilieato that look tho last
issue. There- Is no escape from such
action. It was nominated speclllc.tlly In
the contract signed by direction of tho
president. Tile clause iu which tho syn
dicate agrees to maintain the treasury
reserve leaves tlio syndicate to bo the
judge as to what it can do In the prom
ises or to what methods It shall adopt.
If, In tho carrying out of that moral
obligation, tho syndicate shall decldo
that tho government must isstto another
5100,000,000 or 150,000,000 In bonds tho ad
ministration will have nothing to do but
comply with tho terms. If tho president
does not want to Issue any moro bonds
nt tho dictation of tho syndicate tho re
servo can bo practically wiped out in
ten days, nnd then if ho should decide
in Belf-protectlon to put out more bonds,
he must sell them to tlio Alorgan-Rothschlld
peoplo and nobody else. Tho
