The Oklahoma papers intimate that
Coxey imbilied too much tanglefoot
while on his rei-ent visit there. The
Kansas City Journal, however, char

the Oklahoma jieople can't distinguish
between a jreat Populist leader and a
man with a y.ig.
The notorious .letT .SU.rts. the tall

his chances for serving the State

He is under arrest for robbing David

"There is not enoujrh metal money
to do the business of the country." is
the conlident assertion of the si 1 wr
ites, on which they base a plea for
cheap dollars. They are altogether
wrony. It is true that then- is not
enou-rh money if all business was done
on a cash basis. I!ut each year more
and more of the total volume of ex
changes of roods is carried on with
our system of bank cred its. by which
business is done with very little money
As our banking system is jx-rfected
and extended the need for money in
settling accounts jrrows constantly
less. If metal money alone- was used,
all the silver in the worid would not
lie a tenth of the amount needed for
this country's business.
It in whisjH'ivd in Washington tiiat
Cleveland and Secretary Olney are
seriously thinking about recalling Am
bassador Kustis for the unsatisfactory
manner with which he has conducted
diplomatic negotiations with !-'i-anee
in the Waller case on lielialf of this
"overnment. the intimation beinjr also
broadly conveyed that "he con
tradicted l-'iiiaro interview and the
linjro sK-ech at a London dinner a few
weeks ayo all.' additional sources of
serious White House irritation. Some
how the dilatcriness attributed to Kus
tis does not a Tree with his emphatic
Americanism, as voiced in his London
speech. Perhaps the administration is
trying to make him a scapegoat for
its own shortcomings.
While some of the
that they lielieve in
their arjruments in
at money, all
avor of tilty
cent dollars are used by jiv
and Coxeyites as reasons
adoption of their schemes,
honest advocate of five silvi
he ix-lieves that tile Government's
stamp can 'make 41:!; grains of silver
worth one .'ohl dollar. He will prompt
ly answer "yes" Then ask him if the
Goverment can make a piece of pajier
worth a jrohl dollar by merely print
ing ""one dollar" on it. Xine times
out of ten he will airaiu answer "yes."
Of course he will le vronr. as it is not
the words "one dollar" which makes
paper currency circulate, but the fact
that the Government will redeem it
with a gold dollar. A paper promise
to pay "one dollar" would Ik- no good
if it could not lx? redeemed. But the
fact that silverites believe that the
Government's stamp makes values
shows that their ideas of the nature of
money are the same as those of the
Populists and other flatists.
Claptrap talk about 'Wail street" i
should not deceive anyone into voting ;
for cheap dollars. So far as the stock j
brokers and speculators of Wall street I
are concerned it makes no difference
what kind of money we have. In fact, j
they are not very anxious to have a j
stable financial system, as they profit j
most when prices fluctuate. Wall
street is siniplv a "bojrev" to scare I
innocent farmers and workin'mien.

Tlie south No Lonjrcr solid.
The South was not always "solid"
not always Democratic. It was
broken on the tariff question, and will
be ajrain. Time was when the South
refused to regard a "tariff for revenue
only" as its political Koran. A jrivat
upheaval, reaching lieyond the silver
agitation, is jroin-r on anion"- a

up in North Carolina, in South Car

Kentucky, in Tennessee, and the whole
South is on the brink of a political
volcano. This is not inexplicable.
The South desires to advantage itself
of progress, to share in the nation's
development, and it cannot hope to do
that under the policy of a "tariff for
revenue only." That policy has struck
at sugar and rice, coal and iron, and
these products, agricultural and min

every State and into banking- and bus
iness circles. Protection is a policy

JERUSALEM'S FLOUR MILLS.
The Old lty a ( enter r tiir Milling
This ancient city, which has figured
so largely in scriptural history is sel
dom considered in secular affairs.
Yet it has a considerable commerce,
ami readers may lie surprised to learn
that milling is anion;? its prominent
industries. From the ls:i4 report of
the Austro-Hunarian consul at
Jerusalem. .it apears-that Palestine is
ijuite a milling section, and that
Jerusalem alone has live steam mills,
which yrind partly for pay and partly
on their own account. In s;i4 these
mills made s.oihi to :!o.(HKi sacks of
Hour, of '.HI kilograms or l!s lbs each.
They have capacity to make twice as
much if the conditions of the trade de
manded it. The rain used comes
from the territory about the Jordan
and east thereof. Besides the live
steam mills, there are in Jerusalem
eleven small horse mills. In Jaffa
there arc two moiv steam mills, these
bein located in the villages of Medjel
and Esdud. But little Hour comes
into Palestine from the outside, this
