best a Plan to Knock the Re

HE SILVER QUESTION IN IT
Colnage Plank to Be Demanded
and Only One Alternative
MINNEAPoLlS, Nov. 19.-A. Gary, the
nth Dakota correspondent of the
ournal, wires the following information
btained from the amanuensis of one of
e leaders of the movement: "For sev
ral months an understanding has ex
ted among the leading silver men of
he United States that an emphatic de
and shall be made that the republican
latform of 1896 shall contain an un
equivocal declaration in favor of the un
ualifled free coinage of silver, and in
e event of the failure of the republic
- to so declare a new party movement
I forthwith be sprung with two
ks in the platform declaring simply
protectiou and free coinage. The
management of the movement is largely
in the hands of Senators Jones, Stewart,
and Pettigrew, and they are looking to
Senator Cameron as a presidential can
didate in the event of the birth of the
ow party. The results of the recent
election have given the leaders renewed
confidence, as they now believe they will
able to absorb the remnant of the
pulists and secure through a protec
ve plank the adhesion of the labor vote
of the east. Thus they hope to central
ize the entire free silver strength and
much of the labor vote of the country
The informant is positive in the declara
tion that the republican party will be
forced to adopt a silver platform or be
destroyed. Thie Intention is the funda
mental tenet of the movement. It is
even said that Senator Cameron has
consented to head the revolt.

DEUB DENOUNCES OLNEY.
we Charges That the Attorney General
Stands by Corporations.
TERE HAUTE, Ind., Nov. 19.-E. V.
Debe, preesident of the American Raill
way Union, has severely denounced At
torney General Olney in connection with
his opinion rendered a few days ago in
the case of Philadelphia and Reading
trainmen, and which the grand officers
of other railroad orders and labor lead
ere generally have praised so highly, Mr.
"Olney went entirely out of his way in
writing this opinion, and by so doing
stamped himself a hypocrite, as it was
written solely for political effect. It wee
prepared before election, but would
never have come to light had the demo
crate been successful in the contest. In
addition to being a notorious corpora
tion tool, Mr. Olney's opinion stampl
him as being acheap political trickster
and hypocrite. In the trouble last sum
mer he disregarded every law, and
outraged justice in pursuing, hounding
and imprisoning railroad employes in his
eagernes to serve corporations, whose
creature he is, and whose bidding he has
done with with abject severity ever since
he donned the robes of office.
He more than any other, unless it be
Cleveland, is responsible for the over
whelming and irretrievable rout of the
democratic party. While the trusts,
monopolies and combines have with im
punity violated the plain laws of the
country he has slept at his poet. Not
for one moment has he failed to serve
his masters, whether by silence and in
action when they were violators of the
law, or by pursuing with unrelenting
hostility the workmen of the country
when an offense, real or imaginery, was
alleged. Richard Olney has earned an
eternity of odium, nor will any hypocrit
ical plea of consideration for the rights
of the laboring men now relieve him of
universal execration. There is no slight
satisfaction in the reflection that neither
he nor those responbible for his appoint
ment will ever again have the oppor
tunity to barter away the influence
which public office confers for corporate
"To have been consistent when the
constitutional tights of the Reading em
ployes were struck down by Judge Dal
las, Olney should have sanctioned the
outrage and backed it up with the legal
machinery of his big office. This would
have been in accord with his whole ofi

BARc:rLONA, Nov. 21.-Jose Salvador
French, anarchist, who threw a dyna
mite bomb in the Lyceum theater in
this city Nov. 7, 1893, was executed this
morning. French was undoubtedly one
of the most dangerous anarchists of re
cent years. This became generally
known at the time of his arrest for con
spiracy in the Barcelona outrage, by
which over 20 people were killed and
about 50 were seriously injured. Franch
was about 32 years of age, a native of
Castelsaras, province of Ternal. He
came of a respectab'e family. At the
age of 14 he left home and came to Bar
celona, where he speedily became a
leader among the anarchists. Twice
after his capture he attempted suicide.
French displayed the utmost bravado,
shouting, "Down with religiont" and
died almost with the words of an anar
chist song on his lips. The wife and
,daughter of the condemned man were
admitted to see him in the chapel, but
their tenderness and sympathy were ut
terly thrown away upon the anarchist.
He scoffed at the supplications of the
priests to prepare himself for death, and
laughed derisively at reference" to a fu
ture life. The anarchist's wife made a
last effort to soften his heart, but he
roughly told her to go away, and she
tearfully withdrew after kissing
him. After his wife left the
chapel Franch continued to treat
the priest with contempt, saying among
things, "I fooled you nicely." "Hypocrsey
is now the weapon which I have shown
Anarchists how to use." At 8 a. m. the
judge and other officers entered the
chapel and told Franch to prepare for
death. The executioners as they dressed
the prisoner for the scaffold, were con
tinually insulted by the desperate man.
French shouted, "Do your mineerible
work; you are only the tools of the bour
geoise." Franch was surrounded by sol
dieres and accompanied by nmembers of
the society known as "Brothers of the
Good Death.' Franch walked trembling
to the scaffold, which was erected in the
large courtyard of the prison. Troope
were present to keep spectators at a
proper distance from the scaffold. A'
the anarchist mounted the steps leading
to the platform, upon which was the
garrot. he shouted, "Down with all reli
gion," "Vive l'Anarchie." The execu
tioners then seized him, and as he strug
gled and cried, they forced him into the
chair, at the back of which was the
garrot. Franch was strapped down to
the seat, and as this work was being
performed, he renewed his anarchist
crnes and tried to sing an anarchist
hymn, but he stopped in the midst of his
death song to implore his executioners
to hurry their final preparations. The
trembling prisoner's neck was encircled
by the fatal collar, the screw was swiftly
applied and death was almost instantan
eous. Only a minute and a half elapsed
from the time French mounted the plat
form until he was pronounced dead.
The military band then played and the
executioners moved away from the plat
form. The body of Franch, however.
with the collar of the garrot around his
neck, will remain exposed until sundown.
It was viewed by large crowds. At Sun
down the Society of Brothers of the
Good Death will take possession of the
body and convey it to the cemetery.

Collision Between Eleetrie and Cable
Care at Pittsburg Yesterday.
PirrsBBaRO, Nov. 21.-In a collision be
tween electric and cable cars here today
one woman was probably fatally injured
and the gripmuan and three passengers
badly hurt. The injured are: Mrs. C. H.
Jones, head cut and bruieed dargerously;
Gripman Harvey Rea, badly cut about
the head and arms; Michael Kombault,
Misse Brown and an unknown woman.
The electric car was ascending a steep
grade on Wyle avenue, followed by the
cable car on the same track. On reach
ing Fulton street the electric car
stopped, but the brakes refused to work
and it began sliding backward. Grip.
man Rea on the cable car reversed the
brake, allowing the car to slide back as
fast as he dared in order to break the
shock which wasee threatened. The pas
sengers on both care were panic stricken.
Several leaped from the platform before
the collision occurred. Women fainted
and the excitement was intense. At Lo
gan street the cars came together with
great force, derailing and wrecking both.
Mrs. Jones was picked up unconscious
and it is feared she will not survive.
Demtoratic Members Are Mapping Out
WAHNTroroN, Nov. 21.- Democratic
members of congress are arriving here,
not depreseed, but mad clear through
and, while the prospect for their legisla
tion is not bright, they are laying out a
program, and are going to make a strong
effort to push it through. Of course
what is known as the "pop-gun" or free
raw material bills will cause the greateet
battle. Senator Blarris is said to have
announced that he will begin to force
them through as soon as the senate
meets, and that he will get them
through if possible. They provide for a
reduction on sugar, free coal, free iron
and free barbed wire.
The financial echeme which Mr. Cleve
land says Secretary Carlisle will evolve
with his approval means a reorgailiza
tion of the national bank system, and is
sure to add to the liveliness of the see
sion. A free ship bill, important aennd
uments to the interstate commerce law,
and a bill allowing the United States
government to build and maintain the
Nicaragua canal are all on the carpet.
They will meet with lively oppoeitioin.
