Tho Democratic) Situation.
If the faculty of seeing facts and the
lability to reason upon them have notde
jarted from the free-silver democrats,
they will not attempt to commit the nn
Jtionnl convention to their theory.
i The facts of the political situation
Tirst. That the democratic party
.has been defeated In every presidential
.election since the war when It leaned
toward financial unsoundness and has
been successful in every contest in
which it stood for honest money.
Second. That it cannot carry a .sin
gle northern stato or ono-half the bor
der states for free silver and conse
quently would be beaten disastrously
in the election upon that issue.
Third. That it cannot hope to carry
the house of representath a upon that
issue. The majority against free com
age has increased from 18 in the Fifty
second congress to 125 in the present
house. There aro no signs of gains for
isJlcr anywhere 'this year.
' Fourth. Being unable to elect either
a president or a house upon this issue,
do its supporters hope to throw the elec
tion of a president into the house? In
that case the choice of the republican
candidate Is absolutely ccitain.
Conceding that the free siher dem
ocrats will be able to wiite their idea
into the platform, what can it profit
them? Whatare contentions for if not
to improte the conditions of success or
to put tho party in the w ay of a triumph
in the near future? Is the free silver
fad all there is of demociacy for our
friends at the west and south? "Only
common sense is necet,aiy" to show
,them. the utter futility of their present
'course, X. Y. World. --..

The Fhiladelnhia American, a naner
"published in a" Hound money city, but
'devoted to the cause of free coinage, re
peats, in a recent issue, the stale old as
jEertion) that it is the adoption of the
jgohl standard which b?seauspdsucli
la marked decline in prices. Without
igoing into the general question of the
'effect which the quantity of money in
Jq country has on the prices of goods,
jthat prices hafft fallen just tho same
'in countries on a silver basis as in
those JstaggoljL iffiUsa!"PJS
tAmerica than it was S5me j cars ago.
jit is also cheaper in India and Russia,
both sflver standard countries in fact,
ij.s largely the. competition of their
'low-priced wheat which has brought
down the price of the American wheat.
, Caji tjjg Americaii, .explain why the
cheap silver of Russia and India has
not kept up prices in those countries?
If using more silver would benefit our
farmers by giving them higher prices,
why has it not dono so where silver is
the only money used? How can we
expect that a bushel of wheat will buy
more goods if measured by silver dollars,
when it is found thatin countries which
have always had the silver standard
wheat brings no more than in America?
These nro questions which the be
lievers in sound money haie been asking
ever since the present agitation for free
coinage was started. Is it not about
time that the silveritcs tried to answer

Hon. C JP. Dorr, of Addison, Webstei
county, W. Va., arrived in the city last
evening and was quartered at tho
liellcvuo. Mr. Doir is a native of our
neighboring county of Monroe, but has
been a West Virginian; sail! lor more
than twonty years. By profession he
is a lawyer, politician and successful
business man. He has served two
terms in the lower house of tho West
Virginia legislature and is now en
deavoring to secure the Republican
nomination for Congress in the Third
West Virginia district. Until the last
few years he had been a Democrat, but
the ultra rottenness of that party
caused him to seek cleaner associates,
and his banner is now furled in the in
terest of the Republican cause.

HINTS FOR tHE WEATHER MAN.
When diop3 of water stand on the
outside of a pitcher the air is full of
moisture, and a change of weather for
the -worse is impending.
If the new moon in summer falls be
tween midnight and 2 a. in. the proba
bility is that th6 vteather for a. day or
two at least will be fair.
In winter time if the new moonoceurs
between midnight and 2 a. in. the prob
ability is for frost, unless tho wind is
from the southwest.
In the winter season a new moon oc
curring between 10 a. m. and 12 m,.
means colder weather, with possibly
high -winds from tho north.
When tho new-moon occurs between
12 m. and 2. p. m. in summer time rainy
weather ill probably result; in winter,
snow or cold rain.
The new moon falling between 8 and
10 a. in. in tho winter timo means cold
rnin if the wind is from tho west or
southwest, nnd snow if from the east.
Spiders always come out of their
holes shortly before n rain, being ad
vised by their instinct that insects then
fly Jow and aremost easily taken.
