The Republican Party stands :
for honest money and the chance ;
I to earn it by honest toil.
Good news continues to flow into
Bcpublican headquarters. Conspicu
ous among the many "cheering reports
of the week was that brought by Rep
resentative Hainer, of Nebraska, con
cerning1 the situation in that state.
He said: "I don't want to make any
extreme statement, but I know that I
am conservative in saying that Mc
Kinley will get the electoral vote of
my state. There has been a decided
reaction. At first state pride entered
very largely into the problem, but the
Nebraska people are not repudiators
and can always be relied upon for their
loyalty to the welfare of the country.
AVe shall not have a walk-over, for
.Nebraska has become something of a
battle field in this campaign. Every
store window in the cities has a litho
graph of either McKinley or Bryan,
but five out of every six business men,
even in Lincoln, are for sound money.
The farming classes are all right de
spite the fact that they havo suffered
jinder a great prostration of business
and the successive crop failures. Un
der such provocation not many states
would be true to conservative lines.
"We have not forgotten how one crop
failure caused famine in Russia in
1891, and how the people of Nebraska
got together and fitted out a ship load
of provisions to relieve the distress in
that rich agricultural country; nor
ias it been forgotten that when Con
gress was asked to pay for the trans
portation William J. Bryan was among
those who voted against the appropri
ation to send the ship across the
waters on its mission of mercy. You
will find in spite of the confusing
statements made about the result in
Nebraska that in the final round-up
Nebraska will be a Republican state
Representative Leighty, of Indiana,
says: "I know of no reason why those
who voted with us in 18S4 will not do
so now, and I believe we will get 2,000
sound money democratic votes in the
district," and Representative Eddy, of
Elaine, says of his district: "This dis
trict is improving each day. The dem
ocrats and populists have become alarm
ed and have sent their ablest speakers
into the district in an endeavor to stay
the tide, which is turning our way."
These are fair specimens of tlio re
ports from Congressional districts.
The Republican Congressional Com
mittee is sending out the following ex
tract from President Grant's first in
augural address: "To protect the na
tional honor, every dollar of govern
ment indebtedness should be paid in
gold, unless otherwise expressly pro-
Tided for. Let it be understood that
no repudiator of one farthing of our
public debt will be trusted in a public
place, and it will go far towards
strengthening a credit that should be
the best in the world."
Mr, C. M. Woodbury, a prominent
business man of Kentucky, who is
now in Washington, said of that state:
"My judgment Is that McKinley will
carry Kentucky. At any rate the men
' who are believers in sound money havo
great confidence in his ability to do so.
They estimate that ho will have a ma
jority of 20,000 to 30,000 while the Bry
an advocates are not making claims to
any such figures. From the way they
talk it does not seem that they baye
much confidence In their candidate's
strength, and they aro only hoping he
will squeeze through, if they naa any
sort of faith that Bryau would carry
the state you would hear them claim
ing it by a big majority. Their omis
sion to do so Is one of the best evi
dences of Democratic weakness."
The popocrats aro jubilantly telling
each other that William R. Hearst and
John Brisben Walker have promised
their National committee enough mon
ey to make a vigorous campaign dur
ing the last two weeks of this month,
and that John R. McLean has promised
to take entire charge of and to foot all
the expenses of the campaign in Ohio,
and that he intonds to conduct such a
fight as to soon have the Republicans
frightened about Ohio. Republicans
haven't the slightest objection to this
trio of wealthy publishers putting
some of their surplus money down the
popocratic rathole, but they laugh
when told about that Ohio scheme. It
reminds them of a similar scheme as to
New York, which the popocrats have
now entirely given up.
Some of the popocrats would like to
charge Senator Butler, chairman of
the Populist National committee, with
treason in connection with the Tom
Watson business, but they do not dare
do it at this stage of the campaign.
Butler has got more political sense
than any of the populists who havo
yet obtained national prominence have
displayed. He keeps the popocrats
guessing as to whether ho is with Tom
Watson in his continued demands lor
the dropping of Sewall, or whether
Watson is acting against his wishes
and advice. It is said that ho also
keeps Watson guessing. It will not
surprise those who have made a study
of this man Butler, since he proved
himself dictator of the Populist nation
al convention, to see him play a sensa
tional part in the closing days of the
campaign. But, whatever he does or
does not do, it may be sot down as
certain that it will be in the interest,
or what he believes to be tho interest
of his own ambition.
Mr. Bryan spent twelyo'minutes in
Washington this week without mak
ing a speech, but he was asleep, in a

for any season, but perhaps more gen

liver is orpid and sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is felt.
A prompt use of this medicine has
often averted long and perhaps fatal
bilious fevers. No medicine will act

Mr. Bryan's statement in Mndison
Squ'aro garden that the rates, of trans
portation on tho railroads smco tH7S had
not declined as hiuch as tho valno Of tho
products they carry has evoked unother
convincing denial from Mr. Honry W.

proof of Mr. Bryan's gross inaccuracy
Mr. Poor snbinits o tabulation of tho
portinent figures taken from olllcial
sources showing that in tho time refer
red to tho tonnage handled by tho rail

than fourfold, whilo the rate per ton

about one-third tho rate of 1878. Tho

With this decrease of two-thirds in
tho transportation rates wheat has only
declined one-half in price, whilo many
other commodities used by tho laboring
man havo fallen in abont tho same
ratio with the trioght rate. The facts
show, therefore, that what Bryau mis
represented as an injnry'to tho farmers
has in fact been to their benefit. Al
though the fall in prices of commodities
has been great Jthe fall in tho cost of
transportation has boon greater. Capi
talists have been the only sufferers, and
the dividends paid on the total railroad
capital of tho United States, stock that
aggregates moro than five billions, has
fallen to only one and one-half per cent.
Tho complete roversal of Mr. Bryan's
argument is the usual fate that befalls
that worthy when ho so forgets his rolo
as to attempt to deal in facts.Chicago
A HEAVY LOSS.
now It Was Sustained on a Life Insur
On tho 18th day of December, 1SS2,
Mr. Luigi M. do Jesi, a .civil engiuoer,
rosidiug in tho City of Mexico, took out
a policy for $10,000 on his life in an
American life insurance company, hav
ing its headquarters in New York city.
It was proposed to him at tho time by
tho company either that the policy bo
issued with tho premiums payable in
United State3 currency, in which case
the $10,000 would be payable in tho
same enrreucy, or that he have it issued
payablo in Mosican money, tho pre
miums also being payablo in Mexican
money. As a Mexican silver dollar was
at that time worth S9 cents in American
curreilcy, and as ho was living and do
ing business in Mexico, hs.choso tho lat
Mr. Do Jesi died March 10, 1805, and
the claim was paid by tho lite insurance
company, as it agreed to do, in 10,000
Mexican dollars. Tho widow in tho
meantimo had removed to her former
homo iu Pittsburg, Pa., whore she now
livos. To use tho money eho was obliged
to convert it into United States currency.
She did so and received exactly $3,347.
60 for her $10,000. Tho pursnauco by
Mexico of its free silver policy has re
sulted in tho steady decline of their
dollar in value, and instead of receiving
even $8,000, which she would have done
had her husband died tho first year, sho
received but $5,847.00.
Every dollar paid by lier husband on
this policy was intrinsically worth moro
than had ho paid American silver dol
lars, as the Mexican silver dollar con
tains 417 grams of silver with
a fineness of 072 whilo tho American
dollar contains but 412 i4 grains with a
fineness of 900. The explanation of this
widow's loss lies in tho fact that tho
American silver dollar was backed up
by tho custom and established policy of
the government to keep all of its dollars
equal in value to gold dollars, whereas
the government of Mexico is committed
to the free uud nnlimittod coinago of
silver as it is proposed to commit this
country. Should this government adopt
this Mexican basis of currency, what
guarantee havo tho holders of policies
in American lifo insurance companies
that their policies will not depreciato
and bo paid at 58 cents an tho dollar as
THE REASON WHY
The American Dollar Is Worth 1
So manyreferences have been made
to tho diflerenoe between tho purchas
ing power of tho present American
standard silver dollar, tho product of
limited coinage and tho parity law, and
tho Moxicau dollar, that what will cer
tainly be accepted as an authentic opin
ion will bo useful to the people.
In Tho North American Review for
Jnue, 1895, tho Mexican minister, Senor
Romero, writes as follows :
"It is rather puzzling and bewilder
ing to some travelers who go from this
country to Mexico to see that a United
Statos silver dollar, containing less
silver bullion than a Mexican silver
dollar, was exchanged there for two
Moxican silver dollars, .when pure silver
was at about SO cents an onnco. But in
such an exchange the Mexican silver
dollar is sold for tho price of the bullion
it contains, while tho United States
silvor dollar is the representative of a
gold dollar and is, therefore, merchan
dise bought to pay debts in tho United
Statos or Europe."
Tho United States silver dollar is the
representative of a gold dollar and has
the purchasing power of a gold dollar by
reason of tho credit of tho governmout
which adds to tho valno or tho silver
bullion a conventional valno, raising C3
cents to 100 cents. This is possible only
under limited coinago of silver. If wo
go to tho silver standard our silver dol
lar, like that of Mexico, will ceaso to be
tho representative of a gold dollar and
will buy no moro proportionally than
the value of tho. silver bullion it con
tains. That is, in Mexico itself, where
it now commands two dollars' worth of
commodities, it will bo worth less than
tho Mexican silver dollar, although two
Mexican dollars aro given for it in ex
change at tho present time,

It is going none too far to say that all
tho prosperity this country has ever on

Tho happiest period of lB'years in our
history was from 1870 to lrB3. Tho in
dustries, agriculture, commerco arid
business in all lines flourished. Tho
general development was never equaled
in any part of tho world.
Large sections of the west practically
uninhabited in 1879 rapidly becamo
populous. Not only was the land
brought under cultivation, but factories
were established near the farms.
The iron and coal deposits of the south
wero developed during that period, and
manufacturing industries sprung up in
every state. Nearly threo times as
many cotton mills wero built in tho
south between 1870 and 1893 as wero
built during the previous 100 years, and
the increase of spindles was more than
S.'iO per, cent.
There was no lesB wonderful develop

where energy, enterprise ond progress
were marked. All elements of the pop

Then came the change in national
policy. No sooner had tho Democraoy,
on a free trade platform, como into
power and bognn the work of "tariff re
form" than the doors of tho mills wero
closed, hundreds of thousands of men
thrown ont of employment, industries
brought to a standstill, and the greatest
and richest country under the sun found
itscl in the grip Of distrust, demoraliza

Corn and Silver.
Our largest grain crop is corn. Last
year tho crop was 2,1(51,188,850 bushels,
the largest crop ever gathered. At the
average price in Chicago last year the
crop was worth $S00,0O0,O00.
In tho table, for which wo aro in

Why is if, asks a silver man, that sil
ver will purohase'iust as much of ev
erything as it would before the fall in
silver? TMb answer is, it will not, as to
corn, among -other things corn, tho
greatest ceroal crop of tho country. A
silver dollar will buy as mnch, for wo
have kept that at par with gold. But
silver in the dollar has fallen off in tho
years from 1878 1895 from 81.001 to
60.5 cents, and corn has gone up from

The Perpetual Black Crook.
Tho best of spectacular dramas have
ever been received with hearty approval
ana reception by our theatre-goers,
and the visit of the gorgeous Tompkins'
"llluclc Crook" at the Auditorium Tues
day evening promises to be, in every
way, a rod letter event in the present
theatrical season. The magnificent
manner in which this notable revival
has been endorsed by the public was
forcibly illustrated in New York dur
ing? the past season, when it enjoyed
the memorable run of twelve months
at the Academy of Music to crowded
houses. There will bo three grand
ballets, one of which, "the Ballet of
Gems", will rival the splendors of the
Orient. In this ballet electricity will
play an important part, as hundreds of
electric lights are used, and tho result
will be a sumptuous stage picture. The
grand march of the Amazons is another
marked novelty wherein the genius of
tho stago director is manifest. In this
march the stately figurantes will be
clad in brilliant armor, and their be
wildering movements and manoeuvres
will eclipso all previous efforts of har
monious and artlitic stacre pictures.
The premiers are J&lo Mlcari and M'llo
Kraskee, of tho leading theatres of
Paris, St. Petersburg and Milan, sup
ported by a bevy of beautiful coryphees
especially selected for their grace and
symmetry. Among tho prominent nov
elties are tho Musical Marionettos and
the renowned Itallet International. A
fin-de-sicclo innovation will "be the
unique "Trilbo Ballet". The special
ties are mainly European importations,
and embrace the Brothers Rixford.
Tho "Stalacta" will be impersonated
by Miss Dorothy Lathrop, said to bo
the most beautifully formed lady on
the English speaking stage. No ex
pense has boen spared to make the
"Black Crook" tho grandest spectacu
lar attraction now touring the country.
