with .he usual formalities and the queen's

-My lords ami gentlemen: The communi
cations which I receive ftom. foreign pow
ers assure me of the continuance of their
fcood will. I am happy to say that no In
ternational complications have ailsen In
any quarter 'calculated to end.mger tho
peace of Hurope. The war between China
and Japan', which was In progrc-ib at the
opening of tho last i-eisslon has been
brought to a. conclusion by a peace which
trust will endure. 1 observed strict neu
trality dining the w-.ir and have taken no
fiction In respect thereto except such as
appears to me likely to 'be favorable to a
termination of hostilities.
I deeply regrvt to c.ty that the most
atrocious outrages' upon ,u body of llngllsh
missionaries, are leported from the province-
of Fu Kieti, In China. In reply to
earnest j ppresenU.tloTi' addressed to tho
Chinese government by ifiy direction act
ive measures which I trust will prove ef
fective nra being taken for the punlsh
I'jenof the murderers and all persons In
unv Ji gree responsible for these crimes.

C. 1. Cochran, editor of the St. Joseph
(Mo.) Gazette, addressed the conference.
He said It seemed anomalous that n nicot
ine such as the present should bo called
for he know of no doctrine of tho party
which was not in consonance with the pur
poses of this confcicnce. He said that
congress was the place to look for tho
declaration of the party's belief, and he
declared that gold monometallism would
be more disastrous than war, pestilence
and famine. It wns Important to settle llrst
what was Ilepubllcanlsni and what De
mocracy whether such men as cx--Senator
Thurman and Senator Harris or Senator
Sherman wire to bo the loaders of Dem
ocratic thought, llo declared that the sil
ver agitation would not die out, but would
continue until the cud for which It had
been originated should bo attained. Mr.
Cochran also declared against the perpet
uation of tho national banks, whose tyr
anny, ho said, was tho greatest that any
people would bear. Tho national banks
wero directly opposed to Democracy. He
wns for a declaration for silver, without
regard to tho prospect of success or falluie
at tho polls.

Hon of American Democrats, composed of
representatives fiom twenty-four of the
lending states of the Union, make the fol
lowing declaration on the monetary ques
tion, which has been forced Into the leid
Ing plnce among the Issues of lo-d.iv. The
federal constitution namts sliver and gold
together as the money metals of the
United States, The llrst coinage law p.ird
bv congress under the constitution mail"
the silver dollar the unit of value and ad
mitted gold to free coinage nt a incisure
measured by the silver dollar unit,
I'rom the bpglnnlng of the govprntnent,
following a pollrv formulated by Tliomns
Jefferson, and firmly established by Jack
son, the Democrntlo party has been the
party of bimetallism, favoring the frep
coinage of both silver and gold nt the
national mints, and oppo-cd to farming out
to banking corporsillons the government's
sovcteign power of Issuing and controlling
tho money of the people.
The act of UTS demonetising sliver wnsj
surreptitiously passed without the op
piovnl or knowislgc of llio American peo
ple, and from th" time when tho epfec t
of this net In fnitenliig uiion this country
the single gold standard was understood,
the Demoeratl.' pirty Iris consistently nnd
perslsieutly urged that the grievous wrong
Knllure to accomplish this object has re
sulted In the .teinly appreciation of gold
und a corresponding fall In the prlre of
commodities produeisl by the people. A
heavy lucre ie In the burden of nil debts
public and pilvate; tbo enrichment of the
money lending class; pirasltes of Indus
try, nnd the linpoverlilimpnt ot the pen
pic nnd unexampled dNtiess In all gold
standard countries. Experience hns shown
that while under the single gold standard
there may bo an occasional revival of
business activity, nccotnpanled bv en
hanced prices of a limited number ot com
modities, such icvlvnl Is due to Artificial
and temporary causes, and cannot pet
mnnpntly alleviate the sufferings due to
the falling of prices brought about by the
appreciation of gold and the inadequate
supply of prlmarv or redemption money.
The rights of the American people, the
Interests of American lnbor nnd the pros
perity of American Industry Ii.ivp a higher
claim to the consideration ot the people
nnd lawm.ikeis than the greed of foreign
creditors, or the avaricious demands made
by "Idle holders of Idle capital ' The light
to regulate Its own monetuiy syteni In the
Interests of Its own people Is a. right which
no free government can barter, sell or
surrender This reserved right Is a part
of every bond, ot even" contract otid oC

ant can et up a right that can take prece
dence over a nation's obligations to promote
the welfare of the ih.lssos ot Its own peo

Is not only dishonest but treasonable to
The land nnd Its products are tho basis

The New Gloves.
Tho evunt ot the day it the ar
rival of the first importation of
Trcfousso Kid Ciloves, fall and
winter weights. The largest single
importation of Trcfotisse Gloves
we've ever made.
The glove stock'll ho hotter this
fall than over if possible we'll
make it more complete.
A few words concerning the
stock ami prices:
J'hst. Our Gloves come from the
host manufacturers in Krancc, Bel
gium, Italy and England. And all
Gloves must he up to standard be
fore thuy am shipped to us.
Stcciui. Our Gloves arc all made
of choice skins, especially selected
for us. The second grades, so
often mixed with tho firsts, cannot
be found in them. That sort of
thing happens to neatly all glove
stores, but not here.
Thud. Accuracy ami uniformity
distinguish tho stock. You deal
with certainty, not chance.
I'outth. We sell as fine Gloves
as arc made the most expensive,
also the loss expensive kinds and
a complete and superb stock of all
tho intermediate kinds.
Fifth. Tho prices are unmatched
for cheapness, livery intermediate
item of cost is eliminated. Only
our handling between tho makers
and you. What yon pay depends
upon how the Gloves are got. We
hiii7i how to got them right.
Sixth. All the latest touches of
style, color and finish pervade the
Seventh. If you wish, Gloves
will be fitted to your hands.
