Any candid reader, taking the report
as given of the first da, must rotvr-do
that m far silver ban had all the In
ning. Not one single point wn m id
iigntnst It. Th desperate ( ondltion of
the gold men on the "uhli" part of the
argument was shown In the nttempt of
Horr to go back of the foundation of
th" government Itself, and two years be
fore the constitution was named nnd
four years before the first rongies un
der it Was held. The colonies lsu"d
continental money and made it redeem
able in Spanish milled dollars but tint
has nothing to do with what is in the
constitution or the congress created by
Again, Air, Horr expressly admits that
the silver dollar was the unit nnd that
"we did hnve the silver standard Up to
1884." Ths gives away the whole case
which Is as to what tho framera of the
law of 1704 intended.
We are disappointed for we did not
ejtpect to see the whole case given away
the tlrst day of the debate. When the
"unit" nnd "standard" of 1792 la con
ceded, the whole gold argument falls
for the change from that of silver lo that
of gold in 1873 wo a reversal of the pol
icy of the nation as to its money from
tho foundation of tho government to
that date. This Is exactly what the
silver men complain of, and It Is what
has been denied. We thank Mr. Horr
for "that word."
It Is not for us to go Into the legis
lation of 1S.1I, which no more changed
either the unit or the standard thnn did
the enactment of the charter amend
ments in Kansas City It only reduced
the weight of the gold eagle from 270

Jtut we leave tho debate to tho two
parties, nnd only refer to It to express
the satisfaction of silver men nt the
auspicious opening. We have been fa
miliar with -Mr. Jlorr's peculiar talent
for many years. lie Is what people call
a "smart" man. thinks iilckly on ills
feet and iH as impudent (in smiiit. But
the man Is not a student. As a tariff
debater, Air. Ilorr made quite an ex
tended reputation. He is of that peculiar
mental organization nnd temperament
that made him nt home with ii series
of complicated figures, like tariff sched
ules specllle, ad valorem and mixed du
ties, historic dates nwl party records.
When we saw the debate had been ar
ranged for, wo felt at once that the gold
men had got their champion to make a
play to tho grand stand, and through
the gold press to. try again to break the
force of the work of "Coin's School."
Mr. Harvey we only knew as ii writer,
and as a dozen of the Sharpest writers
tho gold men could find had failed to
make an Impression against his won
derful book, the champion of the oral
ring had been chosen to do hltn up. Of
Air. Harvey's ability on his feet and in
a face to face debate we had no means
of Judging. Mr. Horr has not disap
pointed us, but began exactly as ex
pectedsaying smart things and mak
ing high sounding assertions but has
used no argument, lior givni a reason
so far. Harvey has shown nn ability
to take care or himself, and the fact
that already the gold papers are sup
pressing the report tells the story more
suggestively than anything else.
The vital point in the whole debate
was the Intention of the nation in estab
lishing the unit and standard and that

It was to be expected that on soon
as the Democrats got Into power, there
would be a fluctuation of some kind in
the cork market, still the people were
not rendy for such a remarkable in
ci ease In the quantity of corks sold In
this country. Out tho Inevitable result
of Democratic supremacy was the Imme
diate and material Increase in the im
portation of foreign goode and the copk
trade was no exception to the rule. The
Democrats couldn't even allow domestic
manufacturers to supply the increased
demand, but the coik trade was fotced
abroad, and whereas there were tweUo
or more factories making corks before
the passage of the last tariff act, there
are nuw but two.
Under the MctClnley tariff we im
ported lew than 11,000,000 worth of the
cork wood or bark in ISS!4 but under
the operation of that act the industry
had grown until we Imported 11,641,000
worth In 1893, or almost double 'oe im
portation of ISM. Now 1 hat is the sort
of importations that should bo increased
by a, Just and equitable, tariff law tho
importations of material we do not
produce In this country, not those which
constitute the samples of uur production.
What followed the reduction of the
tariff by the last tariff act, on coika
wholly or partially manufactured? The
foreign manufacturers flooded the coun
try with corks aliiiuly made up and the
characteristic result of free trade was
een In the closing of ail but two of the
domestic factories. Of course the im
portation of cork wood or bark has
dwindled 4own to insignificant proper,
tlon. It ia only the importation of
thing we do not make or grow that
decreases under Itemncratic tariffs, while
the importation nt the very things we
do make or gu.w .tud n the sale of
which our prokperltj largely depend,, is

The rise of the Kansas Cily Blues,

is one of the notable features of the
current baseball season. As Kansas Cily

fond hopes with which the season
opened. After winning a very laige

Somebody In the "Alerchant of Venice"
was sad because he was not merry, but
for quito a while the Kansas City fans
were sorry because they half the Hlues.
Then the aspect changed, nnd with a
splendid bound the Blues vaulted from
seventh into second place, and thero they
are to-day. They will be welcomed buck
to-morrow from their phenomenal trip
by a. community which, however it may
be divided on tho question of Sunday

nnd stockholders of the bank. The plaint
iffs In the suit are Thomas C. Hall. Will

Tho plaintiffs in Ihe suit nllpge in their
petition lhat Ihey own In the aggregate
forty-iiln shares of stex'k. The defend
ant, IX W. tolling, it Is alleged, owns forty
seven shnres of stock, and that tho bal
ance of the defendants each claim to own
two shares. The petition states that nl
though upon the books of faid cor;ioratlon
the shares of stock claimed to be owned
by D. W. Bllltig, S. W. Vlvlon and C. It.
l.lling eta nd In their names; that snld
shares are not owned by them, but nr
owned by C. W. Seeder, and that they are
directed, and controlled In tho mutter per
taining lo the elTalrs of the Hank of
Seeder. Th petition further states that
the defendant. Sber, noting by and
through Cashier Blllng. appropriated f-',i0
of the capital stock of the bunk to hl own
use. That on or about the Ith day of
Atnrch. 1S9,, It Is alleged that th cashier
entetisl on the books of the corporation
that said corporation owns stocks und
lionda to tho value of S.,r when, In fm t,
(it mid date no such stocks or bonds wore
owned. The plaintiff having lieconi" sus.
piclouK of th methods of ld cashier re
quested n penult to examine the books,
but were refused. They then set about to
seiuie tho services of an expel t necoiint
nnt. They then examined the IkioKs and
discovered the enlrv aliove mentioned. The
cashier Informal them that lie had In
vested f.'i.uiji) of the capltiil slock in fifty
shines of the Continental hank, of St.
Louis, but when they demanded to see the
sts-k ho was unable to produce it.
On the 5th of Julj, 1W, the plaintiffs al
lege that they d matided of the cashier
that ho replace tho J,"i.tl In the funds of
the corpoiatlon They were Informed by
him that he had origlnall) purchased the
sio-k In said Contimntnl National hank
fiom lit fondant Soob.-'r, and since said e
nmlnatlon of the books he had traded the
stock to Mr. Soolior for fifty shares of
the i.ipltal stoi k of the Citizens' bank, of
Hipgln-vllle, Alo. The picidcnt of the
bunk tlun demanded that the c-jshler re
place the "ii and return to Air. Soeber
the to.k or the Citizens' bank, of Hig
glnsvllk This ho refusisl to do, claiming
lhat lie had th right to Invest the funds
of tho lorporntlon In th Illcglnsvllle
hank, or any other, more particularly so.
If a innjorltv ot the boird of directors ap
proved of his acts. Plaintiff sot out In

of the Innk. or its capital stock, have
been converted by Seeder nnd lllling to
the use of Soeber. That when the con

The plaintiffs further allege that it Is be
yond the power of tho cashier nnd board
of directors to Invest nny part of Its funds
In the capital stock of the Citizens' bank,
of Hlgglnsvllle, or any other corporation.
They make the charge that Defendant lull
ing is wholly unlit to act s cashier, nnd
that Vlvion nnd C. If. tilling are wholly
unlit to act as directors. That they have
no interest in tho corporation except as
agents for C. W. Seeber. The plaintiffs
claim that If the defendants are permitted
to continue the business of the cnrpori
tlon there is great danger that the plaintiffs
will lose their property they have Invested.
The plaintiffs pray tho court that the de
fendants bo required to replace the iv)
in the funds of the bank, and that on fail
ure to do o Judgment be rendered
against them for that amount. They fur
ther ask that the defendants be enjoined
and restrained from diverting the funds
of the corporation from the uses nnd pur
poses for which It was organized. Tlioy ask
that a receiver be appointed by the court

ot the district attorney during tho two
hours' interview Holmes had yesterday
with thtea members of tho district attor

This Is the only romntlc dropped from

Holmes' guilt. Notwithstanding Holmes'
romnrk, his counsel says he can ptovc an

Holmes was not in Toronto when the l'elt
