crat. Creolman on the Situation.
R. M. Yost, writing to the Cincinnati
Post, refers to a conversation he had
with James Creelman in Indianapolis a
few days since, in which that gentle
man says as follows:
"My estimate of the situation, based
on actual contact with the people, is
this: The Southern States, with the
possible exception of Louisiana, will go
for Bryan. Iowa will give a decisive
maioritv for McKinley. So will West
"Virginia. Nebraska is rather doubt
i ill, but last year on a square issue be
tween gold and silver gold had the ad
vantage by 2000. Kentucky is debat
able, though I believe Carlisle's popu
larity will keep it out of the Bryan
column. This is Carlisle's last chance
to go into history as a great Secretary
of the Treasury, and he must have the
support of his own state. Watterson
will see that he gets it, too. Wiscon
son, Michigan and Minnesota are solid
3IcKinley. In the East the states of
Hew York, Now Jersey, Connecticut,
Delaware, and possibly Maryland are
for the Republican nominee. It iB very
patriotic and righteous to deprecate
the use of money at elections, but
everybody knows that money is used
and frequently turns the scale. Bryan
has no money and cannot get any,
The men who are in the habit of put
ting up for the Democratic nominee
are now for McKinley, and so the cam
paign is practically ended right now."
"I have been traveling recently on a
bicycle," he said to me, "through the
farms and villages of Southern Ohio
I have talked to the farmers about
national finances, and my opinion is
that Bryan does not stand a ghost of a
show of election. The farmers have
"been maligned and misrepresented.
They are largely for sound money."
In One County Alone. .
The Salem News publishes these of
ficial figures, showing how tlio farmers
of Columbiana county have suffered
loss in sheep and wool growing as a re
suit of the victory for tariff roform in
189 1. The figures show the number
and valuation of sheep as returned by
the assessors in uoiummana county in
the year given :
Tear. Number. Valuation
1892 73,718 UB7.618
1893 02,745 155927
1891 55,475 105.&13
1895 43,214 83,833
1896 83,971 54,7ia
Those figures show that thero has
been a falling off of nearly 40,000 sheep
in Columbiana county in four years and
a decrease in valuation of 8143,80s. The
valuation per head in 1892 for taxation
was $2.68 while this year it is $1.81.
Thls-loss has como out of the pockets of
the farmers of Columbiana county. Be
sides this loss, which Is easily ascer
tained, thero is the loss in wool from

If unlimited silver would double the
price of a coct, a pair ef shoes, a pound of
coffee, or a ton of coal, It wouldn't double
tlie dally wages of the worklngman. Free
liver would pinoh the man who works
for his livelihood.
The free coinage of silver would not
mean more money, but less money. All

How Their Prices Are to Be
BY THE FREE COINAGE OF SILVER.
Tho American Farmer Wilt Talto Time
to Consider Matters Carefully and Get
at the Truth A Clear Cut Answer to
Bryan's Claim That Free Silver Coin
age Will Increase tho Price of Farm
The American farmer is a sagacious
and conservative citizen. Ho takds
time to think, and consequently speaks
to tho point and acta, with a purpose.
Tho freo silver-popocratio conspirators
are confident of tho support, of the farm
ers of tho country, and it is on the basis
of tho farmer voto that they make their
calculations arid predictions.
This shows the extent of their delu
sion. They are chasing shadows re
flected by their own groundless hope3.
In counting tho farmer as a fool they
are fooling thomsolves. It is probable
that tho average farmer has as accurato
a conception of tho essential weakness
of tho free silver proposition as has the
average merchant and manufacturer.
Ho may not voico his thought on this
subject in public, but ho can bo de
pended upon to voto it at the polls. Ho
is not seeking for a temporary advan
tage at the expense of those to whom
he has to look for an available and re
munerative home market. He knows
that the peoplo who work for their daily
bread are tho largest consumers of farm
products, and that, therefore, his thrift
depends upon their prosperity.
Tho argument of free silver at this
point, or from the farmer's standpoint,
is unanswerable. Under free coinage
tho wage-earner would lose about 47
cents on eaoh dollar that ho received.
Moreover, tho prices of all articles of
necessity would immediately double.
The workingman would loss at both
ends. He would receive less and have
to pay more. In order to pay at all ho
would have to buy less. Tho farmer
would thus lose at least one-half of the
home market, which represents about
94 per cent of tho total consumption of
American agricultural products, only
o per cent Deing oisposea ol in loreign
countries. This shows tho advantage
of tho domestic market under tho di
versified occupations of our peoplo, over
an unfriendly, uncertain and of ton dis
appointing foreign market.
The American farmer is too sensible
a citizen to deliberately kill the goose
that lays for him tho golden egg of pros
perity. This ho would do most effectu
ally by destroying tho home market,
which is practically tho only market for
tho fruits of his industry.
It must now bo clear to the fanner
that tho opportunity to pay off a debt,
or, hero and thero, a mortgage, in half
value silver dollars, even if that could
bo done with a temporary gain, would
not begin to componsato him for tho loss
of tho natural market for his products
through the inability of tho great body
of American wago earners to pay for
what thoy need. Credit ceases when
cash fails. Tho farmer wants cash for
what ho sells, and this ho would not bo
able to get.
Tho farmer has carefully considered
this matter in all its bearings, relations
and probable results, and has concluded
to cast his voto on tho saf o side of this
burning question. This is creditable to
his intelligence. Ho fully realizes that
to vote for Bryan would bo the aban
donment and repudiation of all those
principles and conditions essential to
his well-being. Ho knows that to vote
for McKinley will bring success to that
party and policy which novo in the past
brought the greatest measure of thrift
and happiness ever possessed by tLo
American people. Nono but crass minds
can resist tho logic of recent events.
Swagger, bluster and juvenile elocution
can not deceive or mislead tho average
farmer on ,ho issues of this campaign.
An argument that reaches the head
through an empty pocket is not soon
forgotten. But this is not a campaign
of dispair and desperation on tho Re
publican si .9. Patriotism, reason and
interest unite in demanding tho elec
tion of McKinley and Hobart. N. Y.

The Unlucky Coin.
For thoso who believe in tho fatality
of tho number 18, tho American quarter-dollar
is about the most unlucky nr
ticlo thoy can carry on their persons.
On the said coin their are 13 stars, 10
letters in tho scroll which tho eaglo
holds in its claws, 13 feathers compose
its wing, 1 feathers nro in its tail,
thero are 13 parallel lines on tho shield,
J 8 horizontal stripes, 13 arrowheads and
13 letters in the words "quarter-dollar."

A Little Foltlcs Makes Tuesday's Meet
Council met Tuesday evening with

which was referred to tho Sewer com
mittee. S. II. Ncece also made applica

ter was referred.
A resolution offered by Mr. Moore,

wos unanimously adopted.

pointments of John Mahnken and Vil

of which were confirmed, Wood voting
W. O. Way appeared before Council
and read a statement from Gustav
Kaiser to the effect that the sidewalk
of James Jackson, on Seventh street, is
below grade and grown up with weeds
and asking that the matter be referred
to tho proper committee for investiga
tion. Upon motion of Mr. Ridge,
amended by Wood, the Street Com
mittee and Engineer were instructed
to examino the sidewalk referred to.
The complaint of Mr. Brown in re
gard to insufficient drainage of lots on
Second street was referred for report at
the next meeting.
Vice President Clemenger, of the
McKinley Republican Club, expressed
the Club's desire to rent the "assembly
room" in the City Hall for one or two
meetings a week. Upon motion of
Wood, amended by Price, the request
was referred to the Building com
mittee with power to act
T. D. Dalo and A. D. Alderman
asked that the fill on Third street, be
tween Putnam and Butler, be made to
the east line of tho street at least so
that sidewalks may be laid as the
street is improved. Upon motion of
Price, the Commissioner was instructed
to have the paving contractor make
the fill on the east side as requested
with the dirt from the grading of the
The proposition of Mr. Zoller to
grade a certain part of Montgomery
street at his own expense was referred
to the Engineer.
Miss Hattie Bennett was granted
permission to tap the Fifth street sew
er with a lino oc White's Road.
Upon the recommendation of the En
gineer, the Solicitor was instructed to
prepare a resolution lowering the
grade on Third street six inches from
Washington to Montgomery.
A resolution instructing the Solicitor
to prepare an ordinance for issuing
the 815,000 of street paving bonds auth
orized at a recent election, was sub
mitted by Mr. Moore. The resolution
provided for bonds payable in gold or
its equivalent and was immediately an
tagonized by Mr. Ridge, who moved an
amendment providing that the bonds
be paid in the "currency of tho
country." Mr. Wood stated that he
had been advised by the banks during
tho past week that it would not bo
good policy to issue any bonds at pres
ent as it was doubtfnl if they would
Mr. Ridge, during the course of his
remarks in opposition to the word
"gold," thoughtlessly stated that
"there is plenty of money in the
country seeking investment," which
made a number of well known silver
men who wero present look blank.
Mr. Mooro said that the word was
only placed in tho bond to make it sell
to the best advantage and because
every bond of the city heretofore is
sued had been made "payable in gold."
A. O. Jones, who was present, cited
the cabe of Lancaster, Ohio, which city
attempted recently to sell bonds with
the "gold clause" omitted and failed to
dispose of them.
Thelroll call resulted as follows: Ayes,
Moore, McClure, Hardy, Hathaway,
Garrison and Price. Koes Ridge
Henry, Wood. It was evident from the
vote, that political prejudice governed,
notwithstanding the fact stated by Mr.
Price that the contractor and tho city
would be greatly inconvenienced
should the bonds fail to sell. Mr.
Wood stated frankly that it was a mat
ter of politics with him, that ho was a
silver man and voted that' way, though
he added deprecatingly that politics
ought not to be brought into Council.
After some further discussion Mr.
Wood moved to refer tho resolution to
the Financo committee for report at
tho next meeting. The motion pre
vailed, McClureyQting no.
The bond of ?500 of D. P. Price, for
performance of repairs on the wharf,
was presented and approved.
Upon motion the request of Mrs.
Buell for permission to lay a three-foot
sidewalk on High School Lane was re
ferred to tee Street committee and En
gineer. Mr. Price reported the footwalk on
the railroad bridge completed. Upon
motion the railing was ordered painted

Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps moro gen
erally needed, when the languid ex
hausted feeling prevails, when the
liver is torpid and sluggish and tho
need of a tonic and alterative is felt.
A prompt use of this xnediclno has
often averted long and perhaps fatal
bilious fevers. No medicine will act
moro surely in counteracting and free

Dr. King's New Discovery, as the re
sults wero almost marvelous in the case
of my wife. While I was pastor of the
Baptist Church at Rives Junction she
was brought down with Pneumonia
succeeding La Grippe. Terrible parox
ysms of coughing would last for hours
with little interruption and it seemed
as if she could not survive them. A
friend recommended Dr. King's New
Discovery; it was quick in its work
and highly satisfactory in results."
