The Natlonnl Democrats.
Since the Indianapolis convention
the National Democrats have gone on
with the organization of the party in
nearly all of the States represented in
the convention. By election day it is
probable that the Democrats of every
state will be able to choose between
IBryanite candidates and men pledged
to tho Democratic principles enunciated
at Chicago. In some States the zeal
ous leaders of the National Democracy
are very sanguine that they will se
cure the electoral vote. That feeling
may be justified by intimate acquaint
ance with the conditions in the States,
"but refusal to accept the prediction
does not imply a doubt that the party
will serve a righteous purpose in se
curing votes enough to prevent tho
capture of electors for the candidates
repudiated at Indianapolis.
The reasonable expectation of the
.National Democratic managers is that
.Indiana will cast something like 10,
000 votes for Palmer and Buckner, and
assure the defeat of Bryan. In Illinois,
it is asserted by competent judges that
the Indianapolis ticket will get not
less than 30,000 votes, and perhaps fio,
000, and sanguine men estimate the
Cook County vote as high as 80,000 for
Palmer. In Maryland, West Virginia,
Tennessee, Missouri, Iowa, Ohio, Kan
sas, Nebraska, where an3' division of
-the Democratic party must be regarded
as a menace of success, the most in
significant strength that the Indian
apolis ticket may command must im
pair the chances for victory to the
Jlryan party. October Reyiew of Re

What He Thinks of Unlimited Coinage
at the Ratio of 10 to i, Doth From
the Standpoints of Business Interests
and Morals Ho Thinks Ministers
Should 1'rcaoh Honest Money, and So
Advises In Ills Charge.
The Rev. Dr. John P. Nowmann,
Methodist Episcopal bishop of San
Francisco, is one of tho prominent
clergymen of tho country who believes
that in tho piesent campaign clergymen
of all denominations, Protestant as well
as Catholic, havo a duty to perform that
is little less sacred and important than
that which confronted them during the
anti-slavery agitation. He believes that
tho Christian ministers of the United
Statos should preach the doctrino of
honest money from their pulpit3 with
ns much fervor as their fathers preached
the abolition of the slaves. He 'believes
that clergymen should do this not for
politics' sake, but for country's sake. He
belioves that tho honor and tho very
life of the nation are threatened by
those who advocate the free coinage of
silver, and with such a crisis, with
honesty and right on the ono side and
dishonesty and wrong on the other, he
believes that the Christian church, true
to its history and traditions, should pre
sent a solid front against tho assaults
upon the nation's honor and tho na
Speaking recently of the political sit
uation and the duty of the clergy to it,
Bishop Newman said :
"In my opinion this country is pass
ing through a crisis almost, if not quite
us grave as that which led up to tho
revolution and rebellion. It is tiino for
patriots, not partisans, for heroes, not
demagogues. In such a crisis the re
sponsibility of the clergy is great and
their duty is plain. The duty of every
Christian minister is to preach tho Ten
Commandments, particularly tho one
which says : 'Thou shalt not steal.'
"For tho present wo must go back
from Christ to tho Mosaic law. No, I
do not mean quite that, for Christ was
tho defender and expounder of tho
Mosaic law. Let me say, rather, that
we should preach, over and over again,
the sermon on tho Mount. Those who
have nothing to risk would assail tho
rights of property. There is no moro
sacred right than tho right to have, to
hold and to enjoy the product of tho
brain or tho muscle. Tho Ten Com
mandments surround property with tho
muniment of law, and as the rights of
property are now threatened, let the
voico of the pulpit, from ocean to ocean,
proclaim to the Populists and anarchists
and communists: 'Thou shalt not
"In tho conferences committed to my
charge thero are something over 1,000
ministers. I shall call their attontion
to what I believe is tho plain duty of
tho clergy, and Bhall urge upon them
the importanoe ot using all the influence
thoy possess, in the pulpit and out,
against the danger which threatens our
country, against tho possible triumph of
Bryan and Sowall and tho election of a
congress thut is pledged to pass a freo
silver coinage measure. Tho pulpit was
a powerful acent in freeing tho slaves.
It can be mado a powerful agent in re
claiming those of our people who havo
been led away from their notions of
honor and honesty by tho false prophets
of a false doctrine. If such a stand on
the part of tho clergy causes dissension
in the churches, let dissension come.
Better dissension in the churches for
tho sat-e of tho right than peace and
quiet while dishonor triumphs and tho
sappers and miners of tho national credit
are enthroned in high places.
"The advocates of free coinago say
that thero is not enough money with
which to do business, and that the pass
ago of a free coinage measure will double
the monoy In tho country. Lot ua see
if that is true. It must bo admitted, of
course, that before we can have moro
silver dollars tho silver ore must be
mined and then the bullion mast be
coined into money. Now, the silver
oro is controlled by tho comparatively
few men who own the mines. They
will have the money. How are you nnd
I to get it from them? Shall we sand
bag them, or shall we rob their treasure
houses, or how are we to get it? They
will not give it to us for nothing. Then
how will the circulating medium be in
creased? Tho silver can como from
only one source, and that is controlled
by a few persons. Thoy will bo bene
fitpd and we shall have a now set of
plutocrats, tho basis of whose wealth is
silver. Bat you and I won't be bene
fited. "Thero are a great many idlo men in
this country today who "are ready and
willing to work, who are crying 'give us,
for God's sako, bread for ourselves and
our familips.' Many of theso men be
lieve that their condition will be better
ed if a free coinage measure is passed.
That might bo true if the men who own
the silver mines and who will havo the
silver dollars, in the event of a freo
coinage measure, would guarantee that
they would spend their newly-acquired
wealth in opening up now industries
and in reopening old ones that have
been shot down. But we have no as
surance that such a riisnnsiHnn will hn
mado of the 'money. In fact, wo havo
no assurance or anything. All yoa can
get from a silver man is '16 to 1,' and
that is tho alpha and omega of his ar
gument. "And while we are adjusting ourselves
to the new conditions, if we ever can
adjust ourseivos to them, there will be
pania and business failures and financial
ruin. What is tho farmer and tho la
borer going to do during that period?
Sober thought will convince both. I
believo that honesty is the best policy,
and to the inspired command of Moses,
ringing up tho centuries, I believo tho
answer will go back, 'I will not steal.'
'If I am entitled to speak for anyone
at nil it is for Protestant Christians.
Tho cross, among Protestant, is regard
ed as the symbol of atonement. Among
Catholics, however, the cross is rovered
with a lovo that is deep and. in soma
onses, almost sablimo. In tho conven
tion that nominated Bryan in Chicago,
and in tho convention that indorsed him
at) St. Louis, his friends and supporters,
in their ccstacy of delight, raised aloft
A wooden cross, painted yellowi and
marched around tho convention hnlK
hurling cHes of .derision, ot'tSthat, the
symbol bat Satldr'irabath niid tlie'
symbol which 1b tno uatnono's nope una
to whloh his oyes turn in loyo. and
adoration. Ho n a Catholio can support
a man who countenances scoffing at tho
cross, I can't uhderstaud, and I don't
behovo thoy will."

Why Uon. Henry Bohl Will Vote Tor
Whilo Hon. Henry Bohl of Columbus
was at his former homo, Marietta, on
business recontly, ho attended a meet
ing of tho McKinloy club and was call
ed on to uddress tho club Mr. Bohl has
for years been one of tho prominont
Democrats of tno state. Ho was twice
secretary of the Dcmocratio state com
mittee and twice its choirmaiir He
served threo terms as a member o'f tho
general assembly, in ono of which ho
was chairman of tho finance committee.
He was appointed by President Clove
laud United Statos marshal for the
southern district of Ohio, but resigned
to accept a lacrativo position in privnto
life. Ho is a first-class business mau,
and henco takes no stock in Bryan or
his platform of repudiation and dishon
esty. In his speech at Mariotta ho said :
"This is not a political campaign.
This is a business campaign, and all
who are true to their country ought to
ignore paity lines. It is of minor con
sequence whether we are Republicans
or Democrat1!, and, with the issues con;
fronting us in this campaign, all men
who are truo to their country ought to
rally in ono solid phalanx against the
enemies of national honor, public order,
as regulated by law, and the integrity
of tho United States supremo court.
"Not since 1SG0 have there been such
momentous issues before the people of
this country as there aro in this cam
paign. During the civil war tho great
Republican party, of which Mr Town
send is a member, and the loyal Demo
crats of tho north saved this nation, and
in this campaign tho Republican party
and tho loyal Democrats, north and
south, as ho haB expressed it, will save
the national honor of this country. (Long
"Outside of this money question, I
am opposed to two other propositions in
that platform. I am bitterly opposed
to tho censure of Grover Cloveland, in
the greatest act performed by any presi
dent, certainly by him, when he put
down that bloody strike in tho city of
Chicago. Is thero any honest Demo
crat, Republican or Populist who will
stand up and say that President Cleve
land did not do the right thing at that
time? I honestly believe that if Presi
dent Cloveland had not como to the
rescuo of this country at that time that
the city of Chicago would have" been In
ashes. Tho situation involved tho very
foundation of this government. As
United States marshal I handled the
strikes for the government m tho state
of Ohio in 181)4, tho coal and Pullman
strikes. I know what strikes are. They
gave us a great deal of trouble in this
state, but they were nothing compared
to tho trouble at Chicago
"Our patriotic forefathers created our
supreme court and removod it from po
litical influences so that it would not bo
cowardly but give good, fair and im
partial decisions. The party at Chicago
has censured that court for doing its
duty and declares in favor of removing
the lifo tenure clause aud if any judge
on tho bench of tho supremo court the
court of last resort should mako a do
cision not in keeping with their wishes,
that ho shall bo thrown out of power
or to creat a couvt that will mako a de
cision to suit them. Is there any mun
in this hoaso who belioves this? What
kind of a government would wo have?
"Do wo want to bring this country
down to tho level of China, Mexico,
Bolivia.-Peru, Japan and other nations?
Our foreign friends sent us their honest
money, and it is our honest and sacred
duty to pay them dollar for dollar, in the
same money wo received from them.
"Tho Republican party, in my opin
ion, stands grander and prouder than it
has for a quarter of a century. Its cause
is known to all people. Its policy in this
campaign is just, and the right will pre
vail." (Great applause.)
What the Facts Show.
A newspaper organ of the silver mines
"While wo coined gold and silver, as
wo did until 1 878, none of these disas
ters which are supposed to attend freo
silver coinage befell us. Since wo
stopped that coinage all tho evils which
tho closest students regard as insepar
able from gold monometallism havo
fallen to tho lot of the nation."
Before 1873 that is, during 81 years
tho government had coined 6,691,721
standard silver dollars.
From 187H to 1806, a period of 18
years, it coined 429,289,010 full legal
tender silver dollars and issued $157;
000,000 of treasury notes in purchase of
168,674,682 fine ounces of silver.
Can the relation between silver anr
'disasters" be traced in these figures?

It is a Gordon sand producer, estimat

tion is 1,300 feet southwest of its first
venture on this property. The new
strike is tho largest and most encour
aging that has been made in the deep
sand in Wetzel county. Further to tho
southwest, the South Penn Oil com
pany drilled in a well on the Fluharty
farm, last week, that is producing 90
bbls. a day. If moro of tho same kind
of wells as the last two mentioned can
be found, the Gordon sand territory
will regain its lost prestige. The first
six wells drilled in that territory rp
sulted in light producers, dry holes or
gassers When the expense of drilling
in tho deep territory is taken into ac
count, nothing below fiO or 75-bbl. wells
to start with can bo considered profita

six to ten thousand dollars. These
