GRAIN MEN ARE FOR SILVER,

Fcrsnns F.ncncril In Ills lltitlnria
Aro In Inrnr of the
V M to Mctnl.
FrltneSs of the free coinage of silver are
nlrayi ready to clvc the renson, or rea
sons, for the faith that Is In them. Colonel
Nathaniel D. Blmond". of the Third regi
ment. Is not only a good soluler, but he 1ns
ohown recently that he U a pood financier,
In spite of the befruarly policy of the leRl
lature, Itc Is a praln commission man, and
li an ardent advocata of the white metal
on the proper basis of parity. Colonel 81
monds elves tome very cogent reasoni
why 60 per cent of the craln men of this
city are enrolled In the free sliver club.
In the course of a conversation the other
nlRht, Colonel Slmonds told why It Is that
under the domination of Kncland In finan
cial matters the farmer of this country Is
being ruined. He said that me price of
craln in Ixjndon Is romilatcd by what Un
pland can Ret It for In India, the Argentine
Ilepubllc or Mexico. A dolhr of the silver
money of these silver countries Is worth
from 30 to CO per cent of tho American sll
cr dollar, or cold one, If that would suit
the "Boldbujrs" better. Hence, the Ameri
can farmer Is paid a dollar for his wheat,
but It Is tho dollar of some other country.
"Why, you see." ho said, "we are Ret
ting tho- worst of It rlcht along. Wo will
continue to cet much tho worst of It aa
lone as we let the Kngllsh pay for our
wheat In Mexican, South American or In
dian dollars. These are nil sliver countries,
nnd they are keeping their coin at home. It
rocs there all rlcht, and they never have
nnd will nccr feel tho need of a different
Itlnd. Now, we ship a cargo of wheat to
London and the brokers and commission
men put their heads together and ask, not
what the grain Is worth, but what they
would have to pay In India, Argentine and
Mexico. Not tho prlco In London, on tho
gold basis, but tho prlco In Hucnos A res,
Calcutta or Monterey. This being a dollar,
pay, tho dollir Is tho dollar of tho silver
country which Id not sending Us money
"Well, your American farmer Is not com
peting with tho market of Unpland: he Is
competing with tho markets of sliver coun
tries thousands of miles from London. Tho
result Is that while the price may nom
inally be a dollar. It really Is Co cents, or
oven as low as 00 cents for a bushel, as wq
pell to a gold country on a silver country
basis, and get the wrong end of the discus
slon. This Is ono of my reasons for stick
ing up for sliver as a coin metal. I don't
believe we will over straighten out this
financlil muddle until wo get back to sil
ver. Wo stand out for roIiI nnd sell on a
ellver baiKultlrout that metal being recog
nized so far ns we nre concerned, but
recognized as the coin of our competi
tors. "I wns In Mexico recently, and was
nmazod to note how rich that country Is
becoming, when you reach tho border, vou
gee J200 In Mexican money for half that
sum In our coin. Now, ono would natural
ly suppose that the purchasing power of
their money would ho reduced In just the
same proportion, This Is not the case,
however, as they take their money for a
full dollar any where. It crops for Its face
value, and they don't ask for any other
kind. I found that goods shipped from this
country to Mexico were sold and could be
brought back here for less monev than It
would cost to buy them from the home
"This bond Issue Is nothing but n. stnnl.
We pay heavy Interest for money wo
have nn use for. Why nro the bonds Is
sued? To get gold from Europe. Now, they
will not sell those bonds to any American
citizen. They must be sold for gold. Well,
your gold Is hero nlreadv. What they want
is to got the gold from across the sea.
Those Itothschllds can give the wheel an
other turn whenever tney want to. All
thev have to do Is to buy a lot of green
backsthey don't need lo piy gold, cither
and present them at the RUb-trcasury and
take the gold nwny again. Then moro
bonds and plenty of cola nnd plenty of In
terest falling due. Then more tnrnlng and
pquefzlng and the game Is sltuod once
more. Do we need that cold? No. We
don't use It to buy anything with: we don't
Increase our commerce with it: It lies idle
In the treasury until the goldbugs of the
old country get greenbacks enough to
gether to drain the fountain and scare
Wall street, and the farce-tragedv for it Is
Fiich Is played all ov er agaln.-iv hlle w e poor
Buckets pay tor the music and scenic ef
forts "If India, Argentina nnd Mexico can not
only get nlong with the so-called masters
of the financial world, but supply all of
their needs with no attention to gold, we
need have no fear of tho fiee coinage of
silver. It would bo a strange slcht, If this
country, universally recognized nnd feaied
ns the commercial Colossus of the world,
could not clo whit the weaklings of the
world have done, and nre doing success
fully. The sooner wo decide to go it alone,
the sooner vie will be all right."
GITTs, 1(1 I'HIH, THE PUIIMC.
The condemning of alum as an unwhole
some Ingredient in baking ponder by the
government authorities, as well a.s by the
phjslclans generally, litus not deterred
manufacturers of such powders from foist
ing them on an unsuspecting public. Pol
lowing Is .a pirtlal list of tho alum pow
ders found In tho stores:
"Cfllumet," "Chicago Yeast," "Kenton '
"Grant's Hon Hon," "Hotel," "Tavlor's

It Is safe to reject all brands sold with a

Dr. Wiley, tho government chemlfct, In Ills

It Will I'robibly Ito Iono by a Member of
tho llro Department,
It is moro than likely that Chief Halo
and Colonel John C. Hope, purchasing
agent of tho board of public Tvorks, will
recommend that tho city do Its own horse
shoeing hereafter. While the matter has
not been decided finally, the two oillcers
met yesterday and seriously considered the
advisability of putting a farrier on the
forco and furnishing him with tho neces
suiy tools, forge, otc for the work. The
movement is tho outgrowth of tho action
of the Horseshoers' Union of this city,
Tho advance in prices made by the union
will not be ncceded to by the department,
and the action has merely determined tho
authorities to do what other cities are
t'clonei uope said yesterday that nearly
every other tlty in the country of any
sUe has long ago adopted the phn of do
ing Us own work of this kind, with Chief
link-, he favors a radical change In tho
methods which have obtained In Kansas
City, There Is no ptiriKiso of antagonizing
tho union, but tho notice that there will be
an advance has simply crystallized the
sentiment In favor of having a man on the
force to do the work of all the departments
on a salary. It U claimed that this will
cost less and give better satisfaction.
Whatever decision Is reached, the union
oillcers xvill ba given an opportunity to
back down. l?veu this may not secure
them the xvork, as the committee has about
made up Its mind to ask the board of pub
lic work to employ the man and buy a
portable forge. The matter will bo settled
so that tho board may act. at the regular
meeting Tuesday morning,

It is rcmnrk.iblo nt this e.ison
when Nature, everywhere is taking on

blood is failing to carry to tho nones
nnd organs thi noitiishmcnt which
they require. It must be purified,
vitalized and given power to build
up ami strengthen tho system
Hood's Sarsaparilla was especially
prepared to meet this condition nnd
lespoud to this cry for help. It makes
rich, healthy blood, and by doing this
it gives strength nnd vigor to tho

the expense fund Is small under the ap
portionment ordinance, still tho collec
tions In the treasurer's office would be
sufficient to care for it. He said that
tho water works department needed all
tho available money It could get.
Councilman Olson said that there
might be some good reason for tho
amendment and asked that tho whole
matter be referred to the finance com
mittee. Speaker Stoncr announced that

Seven (lid Ktnplojri Dropped by I'liMnum
trr liccd Nimi Jim to Ho Hired.
Acting under orders received jesterday
from Washington, Postmaster Homer Hotd
last evening notified seven men omplojed
In tho olllce ns clerks that their services
would bo dispensed with after tho Hth
of tho present month.
The order came from tho department at
Washington direct, nnd was based on the
report of tho olllce made by Inspector
Cochrane several weeks ngo In the Inter
est of economy. The names of the men
who were released were also furnished
with tho orders, s-o tint there cm be a
reduction In the annual expenses of JJ.&OO.
There was no charges against any of the
men. The weie all under tho protection
of the civil .service commission and Mr.
Iteed was very loth to part with them, but
was unable to do .inj thing In the premises
save obey the orders Issued.
The orders also contained direction for
the emplovment of four men fiom the eli
gible list furnished by tho local Civil serv
ice board, to be "elected nnd put to work
on the morning of the 15th. This makes u
reduction of three men In the olllce. The
salary of the three men releas-ul would not
make up tho amount desired for cconomv's
sake, and so the expedient of discharging
old, trusted men and hiring new nt a loss
salary was hit upon as the salvation for
tho government In the case. The old men
nro receiving from $(o0 to JOiXTper annum,
according to the length of their term of
service. The direction Is to diop thtee men
at $ViO, which will save $;, per annum,
and In the place of the other four men
they aie to be hired so that tho difference
In their .snlaiv amounts to the lemilnd
balance. This Is to be done by dropping
ono man at $90", two $700 men and one
Theio nre now ntnety-nino men carried
on the rolls of the olllce ns clerks, and the
annual salnrv roll Is $V.,ol.
