Every "train that has left Washing
ton for St Louis since the adjournment
of Congress has been crowded with
Republican Senators and Representa
tives en route to the convention, and
nearly every man of them expresses
the utmost confidencethat the conven
tion is going to do the right thing,
both as to candidates and platform. If
the sentiment of the convention is the
same as that of most Republicans in
Congress there is no doubt of the
nature of the financial plank of the
platform that will be adopted; it will
be only a question of how the old Re
publican policy of true bimetallism
shall be expressed. There was a gen
eral disposition among Republicans to
smile when it was announced early
this week that a member of the cabi
net had said that Jlr. Cleveland would
support the Republican ticket if the
platform adopted at St Louis contain
ed a gold standard plank. The object
of the announcement was palpable to
all, but it will have no effect upon the
convention. The Republican party
has never been a single idea organiza
tion and there isn't the slightest dang
er of its becoming such.
Delegate Catron, of New Eexieo, had
the pleasure before Congress adjourned
of presenting a strong report to the
House, from the committee on Terri
tories, in favor of the bill admitting
New Mexico to statehood. The report
recalls the fact that as long ago as the
TTorty-third Congress a bill for the ad
mission of New Mexico to tho Union
passed both branches of Congress, but
was hung up because of a Senate
amendment upon which the House did
not have time to act. Mr. Catron is
confident that the bill -will go through
all right at the short session of Con
gress. The Indian bill as finally agreed to,
limits government aid to sectarian In
dian schools to the fiscal year begin
ning July 1, next, and provides that
the money appropriated shall be as far
as may be equally proportioned among
the Indian schools of all denomina
tions. Chairman Dingley, of the House
Ways and Means committee, is one of
the comparatively few Republicans in
Congress who will not attend the St.
Xouis convention. Before leaving for
his home to take a long rest, which he
needs, he said: "I regret that the Dem
ocratic friends of the administration,
and the silver men in the Senate, re
fused to accept the relief for the Treas
ury contained in the emergency tariff
bill passed by the House. A number
of prominent Democrats have told me
that their party made a serious blunder
in not taking that bill, which was
thoroughly non-partisan in its con
struction, and passing it through the
Senate as promptly as it passed tho
House. Senator Hill has told me more
than once that his party associates
made a serious mistake in not accept
ing that bill. From a party stand
point, ho was obliged to defend the
administration and his party, but there
never has been any doubt in hi mind
about the insufficiency of the revenues.
Not only has Senator Hill admitted
that fact, but Senator Gorman and
other Democrats have made similar
statements. Secretary Carlisle, in
spite of his public utterances to tho
contrary, has admitted the insufficiency
of tho revenues, but, in justice to him
I will say that he has always accom
panied the admission with an expres
sion of the hope that tho next month
will bring an increase. I have ap
pealed to Secretary Carlisle to use his
influence with tho administration and
Lis party In Congress to treat the sub
ject as a purely business proposition
and divorce it from the narrow lines
of political sentiment and false parti
san pride. But ho could not bring him
self to look at tho matter in that light.
Ths administration's advisers took the
ground that the Democratic tariff bill
would produce sufficient revenue and
although they have discovered their
mistake, they cannot bring thomselvcs
to tho ' point of publicly confessing
their error, but insist upon forcing
paper balances and showing a fictitious
Secretary Carlisle's story of tho bond
issues wasfciven to tho Senate investi
gating subcommittee and published
this week. It isn't as interesting as
tho Secretary's personal testimony is
likely to be. Tho investigation, which
will begin shortly, will not -be con
ducted behind locked doors, as Sena
tor Harris wished it to be.
Tho report; of the House Ways ana
Means committee on tho danger of
Japanese competition in our markets is
un interesting document. The com
mittee 'does not think there is any im
mediate danger from that quarter, and
say that when there is it can bo easily
warded off by the same policy which
between 1801 and 1S93 proved so effec
tive against the products of poorly
paid European labor a protective
tariff with duties high enough to make
up for tho difference in wages paid in
foreign countries and in the United
PROVIDENCK TAKES A HANI).
Nature some times adopts heroic
measures to knock a crazy notion out
of a man's head. It seems, once in a
while, as though she had stood about
as much nonsence as she could, and
then she lets loose all of a sudden, and
usually with decisive results.
There is the case of the farmer out
in Pennsylvania, forinstance. He was
a sllverite. For years he had talked,
and worked and argued and dreamed
for a silver standard. He was so con
scientiously a silverite that each year
he put all his savings into silver dol
lars and hid them in his barn. At last
he had accumulated about 2,400 of
them, and until about a week ago he
thought the millennium so long yearn
ed for was coming at last
Then something happened which
gave him radically different Ideas re
garding the nature of a financial mil
lennium. One day a thunderstorm
came along and a bolt of lightning
took a whack at those 2,400 silver dol
lars in the barn with such unerring
precision and decisive effect that when
the fire was out the farmer found his
savings in tie shape of a nice big
lump of hot silver.
He sold the lump for just 81,272, and
after two days of figuring, by which
he discovered that he had lost 47 per
cent he concluded that the silver
standard wasn't what it was cracked
up to be after all. Ho is now a sound
money man, and is rebuilding the
Now that Providence has taken a
hand in this money matter, we may
expect a clearing of tho atmosphere.
That bolt of lightning, which knocked
the spots, the Government stamp and
forty-seven per cent, of the face value
off those dollars in tho millionth of a
second of time, did just exactly what a
silver standard wonld do to all the
silvor dollar in this country. The
only difference was the extreme alac
rity with which the operation was
performed. Cin. Tribune.
