Free Silver Wins.
In a recent interview Eev. D. W.
Fisher, D. D., president of Hanover
(Ind.) college, gavo utteranco to his
opinion as to the effect of the free coinage-
of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 in
two directions which have not hitherto
oeen considered, and which add to the
area of disaster that would be covered
by Bryan's fiO-cent dollars.
Dr. Fisher, in the first place, finds
that the silver question specially affects
the colleges, because their funds are
nearly all loaned npon mortgages that
ran for several years. Hence under free
coinage the incomes of colleges would
he curtailed to the extent of the depre
ciation. "In other words, an income ot
810,000 per year from investment of one
endowment at the present rate would
in reality be worth only $o,0G0, if tho
depreciation amounts to 60 per cent."
"If tho colleges continue their work
under such conditions the depreciation
must fall upon the teaching force and
salaried employes, as in timo of depre
ciation salaries are slow to advance, and
.never did advance in anything like the
proportion of depreciation."
Dr. Fisher, in another part of his in
terview, freely expressed tho opinion
that the influence of the proposed free
coinage of silver upon the benevolent
and missionary operations of the church
would be most disastrous. He says :
"There is no likelihood that contribu
tions would increase in proportion to
the depreciation of our money. Curtail
ment of salaries, redaction in the num
ber of missionaries, of candidates for
the ministry, of aid to disabled minis
ters and to their widows and orphans,
must follow. Foreign missions would
be likely to suffer most of all. All
moneys transmitted to the countries in
which our foreign missionaries are la
boring are, as a rule, in tho 6hapo of ex
change on London. That, of coarse,
means that it must bo sent abroad in
the equivalent of gold. If our contribu
tions are made in silver, exchange in
gold at a heavy premium would reduco
them so enormously that I shrink from
an cstimato of the effect."
The extracts made above from Dr.
Fisher's interview, only emphasize tho
widespread area of disaster which will
bo covered by tho curso of free coinage
of silver in case Bryan is elected. It
involves moral as well as material dis
aster, not alone the dishonor of tho na
tion, the paralysis and ruin of business,
the depreciation of curroncv values,
and the swindling of creditors, but the
embarrassment of and injury to tho
great worK ot colleges and churches.
It would bo a pestilential blight, de

A Sectional Tariff Hater.
I desiro to say that I am in hearty
sympathy with a majority of the com
mittee in its decision to attack tho
tariff in detail ; and I think that the
bills which have been reported and tho
bills to be reported will fully answer the
argument of tho gentleman, that we
are making only a slight assault upon
tho system. Tariff Speech of William
J. Bryan, March in, 1892.
That is to say Mr. Bryan favored tho
most vicious class and sectional legisla
tion ever proposed by an American con
gress. He was willing to make a raid,
as it were, on any industry by trans
ferring an article from tho dutiable to
tho free list, without regard to other
articles or to tho justice or equality of
the proceeding. Acting on this theory,
the farmer's wool was made free, and
tho products of stronger industries per
mitted to remain dutiable. The manu
facture of cotton ties in tho United
States was wiped out, whilo other ar
ticles on the iron and Bteol schedule
wero left untouched. This declaration
stamps Mr. Bryan a destructionist, nqt

PRINCE ALEXANDER LOBASOFF BOSXOV
SKI. The news of the death of Prince Lo-banoff-Rostovski
has caused consterna
tion throughout Russia, where the per
sonality of the minister of foreign af
fairs was considered to be second only
to the czar himself. Prince Lobanoff
Rostovski pursued a strong foreign
policy a policy which was regared as
threatening the peace of tho world.
In his keeping largely rested tho
peace of Europe. History will prove
him to have been one of the greatest
foreign ministers that over lived. Ijn

No Benefits to bo 1'ald to tho Heirs of
Members Who Commit Suicide.
Cleveland, O., Aug. 31. At the ses
sion of the Supreme Lodge of the K.
of P., a resolution was introduced
prohibiting the payments of death
benefits to suicides, whether the vic
tim be sane or insane, or whether the
self-destruction bo brought about by
delirium tremens, despondency, nar
cotics or opiates. If the deed is done
within a period of five years after his
reception into the order, the suicide's
heirs do not get a cent. A move is on
foot to cut the time down to one year.
The resolution will bring out a hot
discussion, but it will probably pass.

Brooklyn, N. Y., Aug. 31. The

Gen. James Jourdan, the president of
the company, on tho consent of all
parties, was named receiver. The
cause of the step was the inability of
tho company to meet accruing bond

the injuries that the trolley ears have
done to their business.

THE SEASON OPENED
At the Ornnil Lnt Night by the lliirlow
The fall and winter theatrical season
at the Grand Opera House was opened
last nlght'by the IJarlow Bros.' min
strels, and tho house was packed to the.
doors. Manager B'etnler selected an
excellent attraction for the occasion,
and the big audience was 'more than
pleased, manifesting its appreciation
by the most enthusiastic applause
throughout tho evening.
The company is made up of some
very clever vocalists and comedians,
and is under tho personal manage
ment of Mr. M. A. Moseley. The first
part was excellent, the jokes having
the merit of freshness, if not original
ity, and the vocal numbers being of a
high order. The special features wero
very entertaining, especially the mon
ologue act of Ilarry Ward, who is ad
vertised as the "next President of
minstrelsy," and whose work entitles
him to that distinction. The company
will hold the boards at the Grand dur
ing the remainder of the week, with
the usual Saturday matinee. Wheel

Good Threshing Record.
Maicellus Brooker pulled in and com
menced threshing Thursday at 2 p. m
for W. W. McGill on the old Pond farm
and threshed 242 bushels of wheat by
5 p m. He made another sett the next
forenoon, threshed 19S bushels of wheat
and i:il of oats by 11 a. m., then moyed
to W. 13. McGiU's and that afternoon
threshed S32 bushels of oats and 07 of
wheat- The oats were in bad condi
tion and very dusty, and tho threshers
had.tp stop often. The next forenoon
he threshed 285 bushels of wheat, then
made another sett and threshed 230
bushels of wheat by 5 p. m., making
1521 bushels in a little over 2 days.
This separator has been used for six
years and has done a large amount of
threshing. The engine which was
used has been in use much longer.
