A NATIONAL SILVER PARTY.
A silver party convention was held at
Denver, June 25th. Blank pledges had
been sent out and signed ly silver men
all over Colorado. They pledged themselves
to silver, making that issue paramount
to all others, and putting the silver
party before all others. The Denver
convention sent 710 delegates to the St.
Louis silver national convention, July
22. The national committeeman for
Colorado, says, in answer to the question:
'"What will the national convention at
"That remains to be seen, but from
present indications it will name a national
ticket of silver men for president and
vme president. The silver convention
will be held after the Republican and
Democratic conventions have been held,
when ive will do what seems best for the
advancement of the silver cause. The
idea is to consolidate all of the silver sentiment
into one party for this campaign
and by making a united effort for silvir
to win- We think we can do it.''
Should a silver candidate for President
be nominated by this St. Louis conven

JOHN EMRRY COMES TO OUR RELIEF.
The Climax, last week, explained the
deception in the claim of the silver people
that Mexico is a prosperous country,
outside of investments of capitalists from
the "United States who are buying up undeveloped
resources, just ascertain towns
and certain counties in Kentucky are
prospering beyond others. John 11
Enibry, of . Nicholasville. formerly of
Madison, is one of the many who have I
invested in Mexico. He came home last
Wednesday from a tour of inspection.
He went to Mexico an ardent free Bilver
advocate. He returned an ardent sound
mouey man. He is disgusted with Mexican
finances. Monev is fluctuating,
busidess is uncertain, laborers are
stricken. A telegram to the Louis-Mite
"Mr J. B. Embry, a former staunch
Bilvente converted to the sound money

wjth Mexican currency, is a tower
of Etrength' to liis eide, and hecompletely

Jy that money fluctuated tllgre as

AS ALTOELD SEES IT.
That old anarchist out in Illinois has
been talking. He is a supposed to be a
Democrat merely supposed to be. He
was elected Governor on the Democratic
ticket by Republicans on the outside to
break up Republican rings so as to get
the "ins" out whereby the "outs" could
get in. Referring to Comptroller Eckel's
interview he Bays :
"Mr. Eckels 6ays that a silver platform
means abandonment of New York. New
Jersey and Connecticut, and the loss oi
Maryland, Delaware and Kentucky.
Now, he would have done us a service
if he would have indicated what there is
left for ns to abandon in New York,
New Jersey and Connecticut.
"As I remember, an election was held
there not long ago, involving a gold platform.
And when the fight was over we
had not men enough left to bury our
dead. A similar fight on a similar platform,
was made in Maryland, Kentucky
and other States, and if there is anything
Ielt for us to lose in any of these States it
certainly is not visible, or else the Republicans
would have loaded it into
their beer wagon."
TRIED TO REPEAT THE LORD'S
William Hoover, Jr., came near
meeting with a serious, if not a fatal accident
on Saturday last, while riding n
-work mule- In attempting to alight from
the animal, Mr. Hoover's foot became
entangled in the gear, and with one foot
on the ground and the other upon the
mule's back, he was carried about 150
yards, when the gear came off, thus in
all probability saving his life. Will says
he tried to repeat the Lord's prayer, but
at times he would become so enraged at
the mule as to somewhat change the sentences
in theprayer. Nicholasville Journal.
THE FREE COINAGE OF IRON.
To the Edftor of The World:
Having been deeply impressed by the
arguments of Judge Crisp, Bryan, Stewart,
Jones and other silver leaders, and
enpecially grieved, shocked and horrified
by the "awful crime of '73" as 60 luridly
depicted daily in the columns of the Atlanta
Constitution and other silver organs,
I have changed my -views on the
money question and am ready to maintain
the propositions following in joint
debate or newspaper controversy.
I accept thearguments of the advocates
of bilver and agree with their remedy as
far as it goes. However, it does not go
far enough. Let us have plenty of remedy
; in fact, enough to make debt and
poverty things of the past relics of the
1 am in favor of the free and unlimited
coinage of pig-iron at a ratio of 1G to 1
with gold by the United States alone, independently
of all nations, and can prove-by
the best authority obtainable that
such a policy on the part of the United
States will "raise prices," "put plenty of
money in circulation' and give the"hon-est
debtor a chance to pay his debts,"
thereby making the whole country pros
Now, in the first place, it may be urged
by some, "who do not understand the
subject ot standards of value" that a free
coinage act for iron would not raise its
price to a ratio of 1G to 1 with go.d. To
them I reply "the stamp of this Government"
and the legal-tender qualities" of
the iron dollar would instantly make the
bullion value of pig-iron the same as the
mint va'.ne ' For who would part with
an ounce of this precious metal for any
Again, it may be urged that ou"rmintg,wers every purpose.
would be overcrowded with pig iron. I
reply: ' That the price of pig iron having
been raised from $7.50 a ton to a ratio
oflG to 1 with gold tne world over no one
would care to carry it to the
mints, since the mint price could be obtained
anywhere in the open market.
Next, it may be urged that gold and
silver would go out of circulation. I re
ply: First. ''This is a mere assumption
of the tools of the money power which
they cannot verify." (Atlanta Constitution);
second, "Suppose gold and silver
do go out of circulation, is there not
plenty of pig-iron to take their place and
give the people plenty of money?"
(Br3an), and third, "That 6uch an assumption
mixe the idea of circulating
medium and standard of value that
gold and silver would still be potential
money metals, though not in circulation
and would lend their help towards raising
prices ann causing general prosperity."
Then again, it may be urged against
the pig-iron standard of value that wages
would not rise in proportion to prices.
The reply is: "Wages would be com
pelled to rise, since no man would be fool
enough to work for Si a day who could
make $1,000 per day picking up rusty
nails and old horseshoes and carrying
them to the mint for coinage." (Hull.)
In addition, it may be urged by the
money power, by the "Wall Street
Sharks" and the "Bond Street Shylocks"
that we could not alone go on a pig-iron
basis without an international agreement.
"To such dastards as dare to lay a limit
to the power of the American people to
do what they please, independently of
all nations, I hurl their cowardice and
lack of patriotism back in their faces."
The "crime" of demonetizing pig-iron
took place about two thousand two hundred
years ago, when certain
and "silverites," in order to increase
the purchasing jiower of their ill-gotten
wealth, secretly and "like thieves
in the night" got the demonetization act
passed repealing the good old
of Lycurgus, 'Jhe friend of our ancestors'
daddies." "To-day China is the
only country on earth honest enough to
coin iron, and there the happy laborer
can carry home the wages of his honest
toil in a wheel-barrow."(Atlanta Constitution).
A ruinous fall in prices followed the
demonetization of iron, and has contin
ued for upward of two thousand years.
have calculated the losses entailed upon
the honest people of this world by
that ruthless act, but the figures are so
enormous I fear a revolution will ensue
if the people learn how greatly they
have been robbed. Bat facts are facts,
and the best way to right a wrong is to
meet it squarely. "That loss is
In conclusion I insist that the free
coinage of pig-iron will do everything
that is claimed for silver, and infinitely
more. The people be rich and prosperous.
The once poor man can pay his
debts with his old stove. Railroads can
dfclare dividends on old rails and
rolling stock. The small boy can
pick np old nails and horseshoes enough
to support his family. In fine, poverty
pp.d debt can no longer exist.

WHY THE, SOUTH IS POOR.
Just now the i'outhern States are engaged
in an effort to' have in.xposition
in the city of Chicago, as advertisement
to the world of the South's vast natural
resources. Chicago has completed and
offered for the purpose the largest permanent
fire-proof of exhibition building
in the world. Jib to tho needs of the
South, the Exposition Bulletin says, under
the bead of "Why the South is
"Why have the Northern States east of
the Rocky Mountains about twice the
population of the Southern States? Why
are their farm lands worth from two to
five times as much?
This is the reason:
Because the South sells raw material
and the North sells manufactured products;
Because (he South has only farms
and mines, and the North litis factories.
- The South sells little and buys much,
and pays a profit on it all; the North
buys little and sells much, and earns a
profit on it all.
But the South has the more iron, coal,
and mineral riches; the more valuable
timber; the monopoly of cotton, sugar
and rice; the more favorable climate

of six and the most favorable con
ditions for prosperity to be found on the
globe. It is the only section that has
raw material in great variety and abundance,
spread over a vast area, with ability
to raise its own food supply. It is the
only section which can employ a vast
body of mechanics in converting its own
raw material and feed tttem from
its own farms. In a few words, the
South can produce its principal raw materials
more cheaply, can convert them
more cheeply and feed its mechanics
more cheaply than any other section of
the United States can.
If these things are true, and they are
true, they need only to be shown to the
world to cause the building of factories,
and the influx of immigration. Every
farmer, merchant and landowner in the
South will be personally benefited by the
is the paramount duty of the South
to let the woild know what she has in
an undeveloped state, and is unable
alone to develop, that others may come
in and assist her inthisdevelopment, and
they enrich the land. This knowledge
can be imputed by expositions, and with
this grand object the Southern States acting
in fraternal union, could well afford
to keep before the world a permanent
exposition in its most prominent quarters,
until the whole world should be
come enlightened upon the capabilities
of the South. The expenses of such undertaking
would be intiiiite&simally
small compared with the lasting good it
would bestow upon the country.
NEW YORK FASHIONS.
grass i.inex dresses: organdies: ribbon'
sashes: a new bicycle skirt:
The majority of new grass linen costumes
are made with plain skirts finished
with deep hems, and this is almost
obligatory in order to show off the floral
figures ami leaves with which some new
patterns are etamped, or the gay colored
silk stripes, forming beautiful and varied
plaids. Plain grass linen over silk yet
remains very stylish, and two rows of
lace insertion at either side on the skirt;
two forming the front breadth, and the
remaining two nearer the back, obviate
anything like extreme severity. The
lace striped varieties-of grass linen, show-to
great advantage over colored linings;
and w hen one floes not feel disposed to
purchase jsilk, a good quality of sateen an-
on the chine order, contrast prettily with
the gray linen surface, and the colored
lining is usually in keeping with the predominating
hue. Too much trimming
can scarcely be put upon thin waists, and
besides a broad plait down the front,
edged by lace; wide lace is often put at
either side and over the sleeve. Tucks
and narrow lace often make upthelower
part of a summer waist, but wide lace is
almost essential on shoulders mid sleeves.
Organdies are very much in favor also,
and narrow or wide ruflles on the skirt
finished with lace, are as universal assilk
A VERY WIDE TUFF
to the elbow is the reigning sleeye for all
thin fabrics, at the same time a few leg
o'mutton sleeves appear and also an occasional
coat 6leeve, with a drooping
puff, not quite reaching the elbow A
ribbon band and bow with a lace frill are
the necessary requisites to an elbow-sleeve.
Sa3h ribbons are extremely
handsome this season and with plain
grass linen dresses, plaided or flowered
sashes are a great .set off; but figured
organdies afford opportunity for plain
satin or taffeta ribbon sashes Eleven
inches is about the extreme width, and
the bow at the back is tacked in position,
with a hook and eye on the under side.
Chine or flowered ribbon should be used
and not saved, as the fancy for it is so
extreme tlu.t it cannot be of long duration.
It scarcely seems probable that one
skin can be made to do duty for mountain
excursions, golf, tennis, skating,
general street wear, and also for bicycle
riding, and yet some mysterious drawing
strings, inserted on the iiiRide, and coming
to the surface through eyelet holes,
fastening with automatic catches, work
all these various changes. In a twinkling
the skirt can be drawn up to form
either bloomers, or partial bloomers, affording
perfect freedom to the motion of
the knee, and at the lower edge of the
skirt, both front and back, are two small
pockets for lead weights, which are trans
ferred to pockets on the hips, when off
The special use of these -weights is to
prevent the skirtfrom flying in the wind,
the drawing strings taking the entire
" weight of the skirt, it is impossible for it
to catch in the feet of pedals. A very
important feature is, that from the ar.
rangeuient of the- drawing strings and
weights, the skirt falls into the natural
position when mounting, and no re-arrangement
is necessary. This skirt is
intended to be worn over loosely-fitting
knickerbrockers or bloomers witii leg
gings, Scotch stockings or knee-high
boots, and made of soft materials, of any
solid color or mixed shades' Thanks for
information are due Messrs. Hulbert

extent supercede fratin for June

(Jovernor Stone's Visit.
Governor William J. Stone, of Missouri,
made a free silver speech at the court
house Thursday. As our readers generally
know, Governor Stone is a native of
Madison county. He has numerous relatives
and old friends here. They assembled
at the court house in considerable
numbers to hear their distinguished
friend. Also many sound-money men,
Republicans and men. and
likewise a dozen ladies.
Governor Stone is a polished speaker,
magnetic, and put forth decidedly the
best argument for free silver that has ever
been heard here in fact the .only argument
that has been advanced here, for
such men as Harden have not undertaken
any argument at all.
Governor Stone told the truth, so far
ns he went, but did not tell the whole
truth, as set forth elsewhere in to-day's
Climax. He talked tor nearly three
hours. and incidentally brought in many
questions not particularly connected
w ith the question. The substance of his
effort was that the country is suffering
because of the demonetization of silver;
that it should be coined free, and at such
ratio as experiment may show to be the
correct one, whether it be 10 or 18, or
20, 25, 1 or some other ratio.
A considerable boom has been inaugurated
for Governor fetone for President.

The Rhode Island State Fair Association
announces that $5,000 will be given
in prizes in a series of horseless carriage
races to be held during its annual exposition
week at Narragansett Park, Providence,
R. I., in September. Racing of
this kind has begn attempted before, but
never on so large a scale. The series of
races will be held on a regulation trotting
track, and the results promise to be
interesting. One of the exhibition
buildings will beset apart for a horseless
carriage exposition. Certainly no "in
fant industry was ever so coddled and
fostered by the offer of large rewards ;
up to the present time the results in this
country have not been worth the cost.
The step taken by the Pennsylvania
Company in carrying bicycles free will
probably be followed by every road in
the central passenger territorv. The
Lake Shore is the first road to follow suit
and it is thought all the competing --lines
in the territory will soon enter the fold.
The Western roads are the only ones
which have taken a decided stand against
carrying wheels free. Tbey have an
agreement to charge for carrying wheels,
and they declare they will continue to do
so, no matter what the other roads may
do. The general objection to carrying
wheels in bHggage cars is that they are
