:' WILLIAM McKINLEY. :
The uniformed members of the Mc-
Kinley and Uobart Club will meet
promptly at the Court House this eve
ning, at G:45 o'clock, in full uniform,
for a short drill preparatory to escort
ing the speaker to the Auditorium.
Seats will be reserved for them.
At the reunion of the 1st Ohio, held
near Columbus last week, a vote of the
members was taken and out of 85, SI
were for McKinley, sound money and
protection. Significant, indeed.
Flxlnc the Price of Sllyer
One of Mr. I3ryan's favorite state
ments is to the effect that any pur
chaser who stands ready to take the
entire supply of any article at a cer
tain price can prevent that article
from falling below that price; and so
the Government can fix a price fur gold
and silver by creating a demand great
er than the supply. This sounds well,
but it is irrelevant and misleading.
Of course, if the United States should
offer to buy all the silver in the world
at a fixed price, with the assurance of
ability to do so, nobody v ould sell sil
ver at any lower price. But this has
nothing to do with the question of free
and unlimited coinage. That theory
does not involve the idea of the buy
ing of silver bullion by the Govern
ment. It means that the owner of the
bullion shall be allowed to take it to
the mint and have it coined and re
turned to him in the form of silver
dollars only that and nothing more.
Under such a policy there would not
be a single ounce of silver purchased.
The bullion would not change owner
ship by reason of passing through the
mint and coming out as coin; and the
only function of the Government in
the case would be that of certifying to
the amount of silver contained in the
Mr. Bryan's way of stating the mat
ter conveys the idea that the Govern
ment would purchase and coin the bul
lion on its own account, and that all
of its power would be exerted to keep
such currency at par. This is a gross
deception, whether intentional or not.
Hr. Bryan knows very well that free
and unlimited coinage is a proposition
to dispense with the protection that
the Government now gives to silver,
and simply require it to coin for the
owners all the bullion that may bo
presented. As for the fixing of a price,
that would depend entirely upon con
ditions outside of the act of coinage.
The relation of the Government to the
transaction would be merely that of
an agent, without any responsibility
except that of accuracy in weighing
and stamping the metal. In other
words, the prop that now sustains the
silver dollar the pledge to maintain
the parity of the two metals would
be withdrawn, and the new dollars
would have to stand on their ojvti
merits, which is to say that they would
be worth onlyj the value of the silvor
contained In them. This point is one
that can not be too often repeated. It
is of moro importance than any other
in the pending controversy, because it
shows the fallacy of the free coinage
' scheme so far as the continuance of
the present advantage of the silver
(.j currency is concerned. That ad van-
t, 'tage would at once disappear, and the
(inevitable result would be a shrinkage
fol valuo to the extent of the difference
t between tbo actual and the nominal
.'value of such money. Globe Dom,
Monday morning Marshal James Par
lln started to Caldwell over the C. &M.,
having in charge Robert Osborne, who
recently broko jail at that place", vhere
ho is under indictment fpr burglarising
tho oillce of tho Adams Express Com
pany, and who was arrested hero Sat
urday morning. Osborne had already
earned the reputation of being a slick
criminal and is ovidontly still doing
business at tho old stand.
When the train was a few miles out
of this city and running at fall speed
he asked permission to go into the
water closet which was granted. Ho
was not handcuffed, but tho Marshal
thought no sane man would attempt to
lnnri frfiln (Tnlntr at such SDeed. and
allowedjjjlm togo toth close tTpnej?
Osborne had no. sooner '&huVnhe$,d6pr
Deiiinu-uim j.uan;po Miryv up wc wiu
dow and mAdo a desperate nud success
Beforo the train could' bo, stopped it
was almost half a milo from the spot
where the prisonor alighted and when
tho Marshal hurried back the elusive
rascal had disappeared from sight. An
attomnt was made to trace him with
blood hounds, but tho dogs were in
effective and he is still at large.
A reward of $25 was offered by the
Noble county authorities for his cap
ture and Officer Wellbrook, who arrest
ed him, is mourning the loss of the
neat little sum.
Hendricks, Osborno'b partner in the
robbery of the old man Starkey at
Parkerburg Friday evening will be
taken back to the scene of his crime
today, if he too does not take French
leave of his captors.
Tho Whipple Oil Co., composed of a
number of well known farmers, have
been drilling on the Pemberton Palmer
farm in Salem township, with astonish
ing results. They reached the pay at
a depth of 78 feet and got a show ing
for a nice little producer. This is one
of tho shallowest wells in this section
On Monday C. B. Fulton & Co. dis
posed of their holdings at Waverly to
Sheffield & Co., of Warren, Pa., con
sideration not stated. The transfer
involves about 45 acres of territory
with seyen producing wells The pur
chasers will continue to operate the
Another sale on Monday was that by
which Dan Hannen disposed of his one
third interest in the Happy Hollow
lease to T. W. Harvey, of Chicago.
Another gusher was placed to the
credit of the Waverly field yesterday.
This latest greaser to claim tho atten
tion of the talent was ushered in by
Smith, Shoy & Co. It is located on a
four acre tract of land, immediately
in Waverly, which is owned by an old
colored man named Henry Thomas
The strike bears no sensational ear
marks. It is clearly in defined terri
tory and the well starts off like all the
rest of the shallow producers in that
field. This makes the second well
drilled on Thomas's small tract, but it
is the first producer, the other being as
dry as a gourd. Both holes are com
paratively closely located. Freaks like
these mentioned are tho rule and not
the exception in shallow territory.
