MR. WHITNEY'S LETTER.
The Now York Politician Addresses Ills

New York, June 22. William Q
Whitney yesterday made public a state
ment in which he defines the political
situation, and concludes by saying that
he is not a presidential possibility, that
he "would not run if nominated and
would not servo if elected." As to the

For tho past 15 years leaders of public opin

there would be no substantial disagreement In

that has heretofore spolicn upon the subject
has declared for both gold and silver money.

Personally, it Is ray opinion. If the demo
cratic pirty goes on that platform at this
time, they will meet the most disastrous defeat
that any party has ever had in this country.
I understand It Is honestly bellcted In and
people think It will bring relief from their

and the people of the country will not faco the

arise from such a change. It will overwhelm
the persons who undertake It.
A POPULIST ADDRESS.

St. Louis, June 21. As tho result
of a series of conferences between
committees appointed by tho seceding
silver men of the recent 1 epublican na
tional convention nnd a committee
composed of prominent populists, an
address was issued Saturday from the
headquarters of the people's party na
tional committee in this city, advising
populists throughout tho country to
moke Henry M. Teller, of Colorado,
their national standard-bearer. The
address says in part, after noticing tho
"boss in politics:"

It is said that the report is of great

to Spain. So strong it, it, in fact, that
its contents may, it is hinted, be mado
the basis of armed intervention In

said, that tho only possible solution of

holds, no other remedy can bo found

Dissatisfied with the Republican Plat

Linton, of Michigan, aro deeply in

platform thus declared for absolute
freedom of all public schools from
sectarian influence and civil inspec

of church and state, for no more sec

zens and against alien ownership, for
prohibition of contract convict labor,
for a national system of education and

Sellers declares that tho convention
was largely under the influence of
lloman Catholics and its refusal to in'
corporate the declaration in tho plat
form will cost the republicans at least
1,000,000 votes. He charges the com
mittee on resolutions with cowardice,
corruption and dishonesty, and went
on: '"The election of Kerens, a pro
nounced Catholic, and a political ad
viser of Satolli, as a member of the na
tional republican committeo was a di
rect insult, and designed as such, to
all patriotic societies."
Asked if the A. P. A. would put up a
ticket in Missouri, Sellers said that
that would be left entirely with the
state organization, but he thought
there would bo an American ticket in
nearly every state in the union
Sellers said that he would present
the same declaration to the democratic

A Terrible State of Affairs Existing In
London, June 22. A letter from an
Englishman, who has long been a resi

the situation in that country. He says
that a revolution is only a question of
time; that the taxes are CO per cent on
all incomes, and that the starving state
of the peasantry and the lower
classes generally equals that of the
French before the great revo

says, mothers are feeding their
children on grass and weeds bv
the roadside, and in all parts there are
deaths from starvation. The women
straw workers of Tuscany are in open
revolt, and everywhere men nnd women

writer says, the disease pellagra is in
