The Republican Party stands
for honest money and the chance
to earn it by honest toil.
The New York World gives the
names of thirty-eicrht individuals and
corporations who arc credited with
fortunes aggregating $509,000,000 that
Laye been made out of mining and are
now tho strength of the silver trust
.Not one of these individuals is credited
with less than S2,000,000, and twenty
four of them are rated at from $10,000,
000 to 540,000,000. Tho World adds to
these millionaires and multi-millionaires
forty-nine mine owners whose
wealth in the aggregate is 520,000,000.
This makes the total wealth of the sil
ver trusts $010,000,000. But for this
aggregation of wealth interested
in silver mines, silver would not bo an
issue in this campaign, and Mr. Bryan
would not now be a candidate for tho
presidency. Ohio State Journal.
Elements that Are Fighting Bryan.
No other candidate of a great party
in the entire history of this country
ever had so many important elements
arrayed against him as are now bat
tling against Bryan. F'rst, of course,
among these elements, in point of
strength, is the Republican part. Next
in importance of the foes of Bryan are
the Cleveland and Carlisle faction of
the Democrats, most of whom will vote
directly for McKinley. Prominent
also among Bryan's enemies are the
great body of the railroad workers of
the country of all grades, four-fifths of
the Germans, four-fifths of the manu
facturers and factory operatives, a like
proportion of miners and mine workers
(aside from silver miners), and nine
tenths of the clergy of all denomina
tions, of the college professors and
educators in general, and of the promi
nent and influential newspapers of all
Here, indeed, is a combination of fac
tors all working directly or indirectly
and by far the most of them directly
in favor of McKinley and against
Bryan, such as neyer were gathered on
one side before since parties began to
harden into shape in the early days of
Jackson's Presidency. But this exhibit
does not reveal the full extent of the
preponderance against Bryan. The
iarmers and the ordinary laborers have
not been mentioned here yet. It is
safe to say that a large majority of each
of these elements is hostile to the Chi
cago ticket This was demonstrated to
be true in the Vermont and Maine
elections, and it is entirely safe to say
that New England does not hold a
monopoly of the common sense and
common honesty of the country.
The extent to which Bryan has been
repudiated and denouncsd by the men
of influence and character jn the or
ganization to wh(ch he pretends o be
long is altogether unexampled in party
history in tho United States. Not a
single man of national standing in1 the
Democratic party is supporting Bryan
The Democratic President, that Presi
dent's entire Cabinet, every Democrat
who was reallv a leader in either
branch of Congress and every man in
either public or private life who holds
the respect of the Democratic party or
who is entitled to speak in its name,
appear to be either secretly or openly
hostile to Bryan. Nobody ever saw or
ever read of anything like this before.
The degree to which Bryan has been
abandoned and condemned by the
lrains and character of his own party
gives the canvass of 1600 a unique
place in American political annals.
Tho Popocratio candidate tells how
it would work. When tho laws ore 60,
under the free coinage of silver, tho
holder of silver bullion can convert his
silver into dollars nt the mint, "that
will fix a mint price for silver and our
silver dollars Will To, worth as much as"
our gold dollars." Accepting for the
moment this theory of the unlimited
coinage of silver, what does it logical
ly imply? By opening tho mints td
silver at the ratio of 10 to 1 Bryan says
that the Government will fix "a mint
price for silver" and tho coined silver
will be equal to gold; that practically
tho Government will buy all the silver
offered at the mints at a fixed price I.
c., $1.20 an ounce. Unlimited coinage
therefore means, according to this tho-
ory, that tho Government will oiTdr.foiJ
all the silver of tho world lOO.vporcent
more, than its present markot"ptfce.
It willJpay the mlns-ownors SU29 an
ounce for their product iwhlch now
brings in the market less than OS cents
an ounce. .
If silver should be coined into money
to an unlimited extent at the present
ratio if this infusion of silver into the
currency were desirable can Bryan or
anyone else give reason why the pro
ducers of silver should receive this
enormous profit? Why should not the
Government make the profit? Why
should not the Treasury retain the dif
ference between tho bullion valuo of
silver and the coinage yalue? Why
should not this difference of 100 per
cent go to the Government to the
people and not to the producers of
silver? They now make a profit in
producing silver at 08 cents an ounce.
If it were not for a profitable industry,
the output of silver would not have in
creased so vastly during the past twen
ty years. Are the silver mine-owners
entitled to any special favor from the
Government? Have they any greater
claim upon the Government than the
iron interests and copper interests?
Can Bryan or anyone else holding his
theory offer a valid or plausible reason
why the Government in fixing "a mint
price for silver" should fix a price
above tho market value?
The obvious logic of Bryan's own ex
planation of the unlimited coinage of
silver is that the whole scheme is in
tho interest of the producers of sil
ver. Times Star.
The Tullure of Ilryun.
No candidate for the presidency
within the memory of man has made
so many public addresses or said so
little as William Jennings Bryan. Like
a cheap lawyer with a bad case he in
dulges in charges that he cannot prove;
puts statements in the mouths of the
opposition that aro groundless; daz
zles the average crowd with senseless
jargon and half baked propositions
that he cannot explain or defend him
self; dodges every issue in tho cam
paign but that of free coinage, which
he manipulates, turns and twists like
the mysterious handkerchief in the
hands of a sleight-of-hand performer,
and when cornered indulges in a tirade
of abuse against tho "gold bugs" that
proclaims the shallowness of the man.
When Mr. Bryan was nominated
there was a general impression that
he would be found to be not only elo
quent, but ingenious and persuasive,
it was the common belief that he
would prove himself a close reasoner,
.that grant him an inch of premise and
he would wrap his opponent in a chain
of logic. So far from being a close
reasoner he i3 proving himself to bo a
loose talker. He does not set traps
and pitfall for others, for he walks
into them himself.
Thus he has been telling tho people
in the South that when a dollar rises
in value it means prices will fall.
Though Mr. Bryan stopped there the
implication is obvious that he holds
that prices will rise with a dollar fall
ing in value. Sound money men, of
course, nave maintained that the dol
lar he advocates would be depreciating
steadily, and he admits it Having
conceded this much Mr.. Bryan went
on to talk about his advocating bime
tallism, saying in almost the same
breath that, if elected, he would not
lose a moment in getting rid of the
gold standard. Bimetallism with gold
left out would be no bimetallism at
ull, and, of course, Bryan knows it
He is talking to deceive in his char
acter of the great national "confidence
In one thing, however, Mr. Bryan is
consistent. From tho opening of the
campaign he has shown himself moral
ly obtuse, not the faintest glimmer of
consciousness that he is urging the
American people to swindle their cred
itors revealing itself in one of his
many hundred speeches.

Tho Engineer was instructed to give

Objections to the location of poles
for the electric street rail way in various
localities on Front street were brought
to. the attention of Council by Mr.
Recti. Tho chief bone of contention
was tho polo in front of George Van
Dusen's property, the claim being made
by that gentleman that the pole inter
fered with his awning and that all
poles on Front streot were being placed
at irregular intervals. Dr. Hardy
spoke against changing tho location of
the polo, holding that such action
would involve Council and the Company
in endless trouble, as it was impossible
to suit everybody. Bachman moved to
refer the question to the Street com
mittee, with power to act, but his mo
tion failed to be seconded. Mr. Moore
moved that tho pole be placed in the
hole now dug for it, which motion pre
vailed, Rech voting no.
The bids for laying the sidewalk on
Greene street from Fifth to Seventh
were opened by the Cleric, the bidders
being D. P. Price, '.. T. Darrcw and
John Singer. The bids' were ma'de in
different forms and there appeared to
be some question as to whoso figures
were the lowest.
Mr. Price moved to reconsider the
motion in regard to the location of the
electric railway pole in front of Van
Dusen's on Front street The motion
to reconsider was lost by a tie yole,
but the President yoted aye.
Upon motion the matter of lowering
the grade of Third street above Wash
ington was postponed for signatures of
property owners above Warren.
The protection of the stairway at the
west end of the railroad bridge by
erecting a railing was referred upon
motion to the Railroad committee.
The usual number of bills were al
lowed and Council adjourned to 8:30
o'clock Wednesday evening.
The Question of Fitness.
Probably there never nas been an
other Presidential campaign in which
either of the principal candidates
sought so plainly as Mr. Bryan does to
capture by oratory, and to divert at
tention from eyery question as to his
fitness. It is no part of a President's
duty to make eloquent speeches. He
has no place in either branch of Con
gress, and can hardly endeavor to
rouse popular feeling against either
legislative branch, as Andrew Jackson
did, without taking an attitude of hos
tility toward those charged by the
people with the duty of law-making,
besides detracting from the dignity of
his office. Moreover, tho oratorical
temperament, which works with and
appeals to the emotional nature rather
than the clear intellect and cool judg
ment, is distinctly recognized as not
the best for the Chief Executive, whose
lightest words may affect the peace or
welfare of a nation, whose acts ought
to bo regulated by careful considera
tion of consequences, and who needs,
oboye all things, to besuro that he will
not overheat his mind with his own en
thusiasm and passion. N. Y. Tribune.

Thoro aro two thine which deeply and per
onally interest the worlclngmcn. Thoy are,
work and weroj. They want steady work at
good wages. They are not satisfied with ir
regular work at inadequate wages. They
wnnt tho American standard appliod to both.
With steady work, they want to be paid in
sound money. Thoy do not want to lose any
part of their hard earnings through poor dol
lars, and they don't want to be paid in dollari
whose value can only bo ascertained by the
dally market reports. Whatovcr work they
now have is paid for in good money, and there
fore no complaint Is mode on that score. They
are satisfied with the monejr, bnt thoy are not
satlsflod either with tho scant work or tho re
duooi wages. Thoy are satlsflod with the
present dollar bill, bat they aro not satisfied
with the present tariff bilL
Under tho present standard for meas
uring the value of labor tho dollar bill is
all right. The workingmau knows it is
worth 100 cents in any market in the
world. He is not anxious to have it
changed, but ho wants more of them
than he has been in the habit of hand
ling in the last threo years. Ho can not
get them through th'o mints. Ho can
not possess them if he is denied the op
portunity to earn them by honest labor.
Mr. Bryan has not yet shown in any of
his speeches how the freo coinage 16 to
1 dollars can get into tho hands of labor
through the mints. Tho burden of
proof is upon Mr. Bryan.
Tho laboring men want a now tariff
bill; the dollar bill is all right. Chicago
