in thuuder tones, which were heard
around the woild, of tho soundness of
Iho credit of tho United States. And.
that wasn't all that this enormous
amount of money said, and wheu
money talks it is usually listened to.
It gave the liu direct, barked by tin
indisputable evidence of haul cash, to
liio statements made in ami out of
Congiess by men iu authority that it
would bo impossible for this Govern
ment to float a large issue of bonds
without erasing "coin" and substitut
ing "gold" on the faco of them. It is
worthy of'note, too, that tho verj
money kings who started Iho "gold"

nick iu the game was taken when Sen
ator Jones of Nevada voted wi'li the
Democrats of the linauce committee
and li'id a substitute pioviding for tlie
free coinage of silver reported for the
House tariff bill. No sooner was this
done thau tho policy of the Democrats
becamo plain. They propose to use
tho free silver substitute to try to kill
the taiiff bill, and to do so thoy have
all become for tho timo silver, men.
This resulted in uniting tho Repub
licans, tho silver Republicans being
more anxious to pass tho tariff bill,
which may possibly become a law,
thau to pass the freo coinage substi
tute, which cannot possibly become a
law. The Populist Senators by voting
as a unit cau dee'de this game either
way. If they divide the taiiff bill will
will and pass.
The friends of Senator Allison are

Governor McKinley aud the others
who are open or implied candidates
seem to think they also havo been

Mr. Harrison would prefer Senator Al
lison to any other of tho candidates,
but there are several weighty reasons
why ho is not liablo to mako that

didate, Mr. Harrison must recognize,

which might result in Ids being nomi
