So Cleveland's friend, P.enedict, says
'"this country is poing to the dogs," and
and he threatens to leave it. If Benedict
bhould depart there would he one
le- dog for the country to go to, and it
might last a little longer.
Tin: "National Democrats" hold their

"great lender"' of the party will be there.
Alas! The great followers will May at

The prospects lor victory for Democracy
everywhere this fall were never
brighter. The broken promis and
pledges of the Republican party last fall
are doing the work. Thousand, of idle
men all over the country, and those
whose wages have been reduced,
although promised an increase, are
wfth present conditions and will
unite to correct them at the polls.
A i.KtniNci Republican newspaper
of Chicago, in an attack on the silver
conference, pitched in a querulous
key, takes occasion to remark:
"There was a time when :7I grains of
silver would pay oH" a-, much indebtedness
as 23 prat ns of pokl. It takes
now 780 grains of silver The purchasing-
power of silver cannot be increased
by law; the debt paying; power
ran be increased dishonestly as far
as existing contracts are concerned."
Teus, in plain terms, is admitted
the fact that the man who borrowed
371 grains of silver must now pay the
lender 780 grains of silver in payment
of the debt. This strikes our
as just and right, and it argues
in the interests of a monetary
system that has more than doubled
the indebtedness of this nation
since it has been put in force.
The rights of the creditor are sacred
in the eyes of the goldites, and
so far as the debtor is concerned there
i i nothing but reviling for his portion.
Thk Democratic Convention at Columbus,
Ohio, last week, was the most
memorable in the States history- The
party was a unit for the Chicago platform
and every nominee for a State
office stands squarely upon the issuees of
last fall. Tne Republican party has a
tremendous free silver wing which will
not support Busline!! nor Hnnnn, bo the
Democrats will elect Chapman for Governor
and Bweep thn State The Democrats
of Ohio put none but Democrats on
guard this. year.
Among the last acts of Lincoln's life
was a message for the miners of the far
West This was embodied in a letter
addressed to Mr. Colfax, aiid dated
April 14, ISCm, in which he said:
"Tell the miners for me that I intend
to promote their interest to the utmost
of my ability because their prosperity
is the prosperity of the nation, and we
bhall prove in a few years that we are
the treasury of the world."
Less than eight years afterward this
kwie policy was reversed by a wicked
conspiracy between the bankers of Europe
and America, by which the act of
February 12, ISTo, was passed, and one
of the great industries of the country,
which Lincoln declared to be "the
of the nation," was stricken down,
crippled, and destroyed.
The Pantograph made a strange but
honorable admission in a late issue con
ccrning the growth of bimetallism.
While those who read newspapers generally
do not need such assurances of the
increasing popularity of the bimetallic
idea, still it is significant when the opponents
of the cause admit its importance
as a political issue. Is bimetallism drad,
as its enemies would hare you beliee ?
Savs our esteemed Republican contemporary
in its issue of June 20:
"The visit of the bimetallic commission
from the Unitetl States to the European
countries is evidently hearing
fruit. Wiieu a bimetallic conference
held in England can receive letters from
such prominent government officials as
Hon. J. A. Ralfour, First Lord of the
Treasury; Henry Chapman, Fresidentof
Local Government Boards; Lord George
Hamilton. of State for Inda;
Walter I.ong, president of the board of
agriciiltuie; Sir Matthew Ridley, secretary
of state for home affairs, and Alfred
Rothschild, it i3 quite apparent that the
sentiment in favor of bimetallism is
and that the people in that part
of the world generally, with those of the
United States, concur in the belief that
iuternMional action is the only
method of obtaining 11."
Says the I'antagraph, the organ of the

brought upon the people. It is plamh
true that as cotton and tobacco, corn
and wheat, hogs, cattle and stocks continue
to go up, louder is the wail of the
The Climax gladly takes up the gage
of battle here thrown down, and acknowledges
that it is a calamity howler to
the extent of telling the truth about.the
deplorable conditions existing, which the
Fantagraph and other such organs of the
Administration wish us to grin and bear.
If the I'antagraph like3 falling prices,
stagnation, want, bankruptcy and ruin,
it may continue ao close its eyes to facts,.
but as lor us, we must aud will tell the
truth about "calamity." For the especial
delectation of our esteemed contemp
orary we publish on our first page a column
of truth from McKinley's own
state. Read it, then read your own Commercial-Tribune
of yesterday, and find

The miners of 1'ennsylvanio, Ohio and
Indiana, to the number of ;575,000, are
out on a strike. The following circular
Iihs been issued by the United Mine
Workers of America:
"The signs of the times, as pointed out
by the picas aud by testimony of men
versed in public Mlairs, are that business
is reviving, that an upward tendency
in price- of all commodities is apparent.
In the general business revival and
industrial improvement which is earnest
ly proclaimed, we ought to share, and if
we do not attempt to share, we shall be
false to ourselves and those dependent
upon us. let the watchword be, 'mine
workers are entitled to a fair day's pay
for a fair day's woik."
Thus do the piecrust promises of prosperity
materialize in revolts among the
very creatures who were led up to the
noils like, sheep" to vote for McKinley

Not in the history of this couutry has
there been such an opportunity to any-party,
and never in its history has
there been such rejoicing as there would
be if the Republican party should restore
prosperity. This is strange, but
true. Strange, that the entire people are
anxious for it to come, 'even if it be by
'the Republican party. It is likely that
there is Jess regret over the change of
administration than there ever was before
in our history. Generally . the defeated
party has shown more or less of a
hostile feeling toward their victors, and
generally the disposition has been
the war in congress But in this

To longer heed the plea of the gold bug
to keep quiet, is to cry "Peace, peace!"
when there is no peace. It is our province
to hold aloft the banner of the party
which set on foot last year at Chicago a
crusade against the money power that h
ruling and ruining our country; and as
long as we have the courage of our convictions
and the type and presses to employ,
we shall go on with the fight.
Most of the. great dailies, with the aid
of the news agents and the Associated
Pies?, are in the service of the gold combination.
The sound money clubs of
New York, Chicago and other large cities,
backed by unlimited capital, are
flooding the country with gold-standard
literature. The people want an opportunity
to read the other side and arm themselves
with the truth to refute the fallacies
of the emissaries of the go'd monopoly.

Second Street Slays the Tide of Business.
The removal of the postofllco and

fact that there is not a vacant store

several valued additions have
been made which insure to that locality
a continuation of the major portion
of the travel and trade which
have gravitated that way.
The latest accessions to Second St.
are the AVestern Union telegraph office,

and the New Gamett House, all of
which draw their quota of patronage

agreeing that the matter was too trivial
to jeopardize their long standing
Both deny that the trouble arose
over the alleged $."i00 contribution of

A Tragedy Just on The Jackson Line
At noon, on Saturday, Simpson's
store at the top of Big Hill, this
county was treated to a genuine sensation,
in the shape of a killing,
wherin Joe Gatliir, aged 10, was shot
and killed by Henry G. Jiles, aged 77
The troublo originated by Gatliff
coming into the store intoxicated and
abusing old man Jiles so it is alleged.
Gatliir, it seems, drew a gun but
was quelled, although Jiles had
armed himself. The latter put his
weapon in his saddle pocket, preparatory
to departing, when Gatliir ran up
behind him and sought to tear his
clothes olf. The old man thrust hii
pistol around under his left arm and
fired, the ball, a 44, piercing Gatliff
near the heart, kill'iig him almost instantly
Jiles mounted his horse and
and proceeded about three miles over
in Jackson county, when he was
overtaken by Henry Raney, a half
brother of the dead man. who called
to Jiles to halt. Some say that Jiles
turned in his saddle and was preparing
to reply with a bullet, when a
shot from Raney's Winchester rille
killed his horse which fell upon
Jiles who lost his pistol in the fall.
Before Jiles could arise Raney captured
him, and about nine o'clock
Saturday night the old man was
lodged in jail here.
Mr. Jiles draws "a-pension of $30 per
month, being a veteran of the Fed-oral
army. He .waived an examination
and was held over to the Grand
Jury without bail.
