The following is the declaration of
The paramount issue at this time in the
T'nite.l Mates is indisputably the money ques
tion. It is between the gold standard, gold
iKiaii.s and bank currency on one side, and the
bii.'.etalli'' standard, no bonds and government
currency on the other.
n this iss'.ic we declare ourselves to be in
favor of a distinctive American financial sys
tem. We are unalterably ooposed to tiie. singic
V'.ld st:ind;:rd. and demand the immediate re
tain to the constitutional standard of pold
and silver, by the restoration by the goveru
jr.eT:t. :mioper.dthtly of auy foreign power, of
ubc unrestricted power or both gold and silver
inio standard money, at the ratio of ! to 1.
and upon terms of exact equality, as they ex
tsti'd prior t.i !sr:t. the silver coin to be of full
l e:il tender equality with gold for all debts
ard iues. pnbiic and private.
'AV hoid that the power to control and regu
2:im' a ouper o-.irrency is inseparable from the
jw-er tocim money: at'd, hence, that all cur
r mv intruded to circnlaio as money should be
ts-ued. m::"i lis volume controlled, by the gen
eral goveTi::Knt only, a'wl should be lc;:;al
We are unalterably opposed to the issue by
tin- ITnited States of interest-bearing bonds in
lime of )yare. aa.l we de:io,:nce as a blunder
vnr-p than a crime the present treasury policy,
concurred in by a reonblican house, of plunging
the country in debt by hundreds of millions in
the vain a;tei!pt to maintain the gold standard
by boiTowing gol.l: and we demand the pay
ment cf all the coin obligations of the United
States as proMded by existing laws, in either
poi.l or silver com. at the option of tiie govern
.tnnt. and not at the option of the creditors.
Vi'HKKKAs. The demonetization of silver in
lTit enormously increased the demand for&old,
enhancing its purchasing piwer and lowering
all prices measured by that standard: and.
WiiEHKAs. Since that unjust and indefensi
ble act. the pr;cs of American products have
fallen upon an average ueariy :0 per cent.,
carrying down with them proportionately the
money value of ail ether forms of property, ex
cept in peculiarly-favored localities: and,
Whekeas, Such fail of prices has destroyed
the profits of legitimate industry, injuring the
producer for the bonellt of the non-producer,
jincreasiug the burden of the debtor and swell
ing the gains of the creditor, paralyzing the
vro l"ietie energies of the American people,
re'. .- .ting to idleness vast numbers of willing
r.u-':ers. sending the shadows of despair into
t:.e :: mi of the honest toiler, filling the land
with ttanips and paupers, and building up
coiossal fortunes at the money centers: and.
ViiKiitAS. Jn the effort to maintain the gold
tandard the country has. within the last
eighteen months, in a time of profound peace
anil plenty, been loaded down with il i-'.ooO.OOi)
cf additional interest-bearing debt. eu.l r such
cireuaistanccs as to allow a syndicate of na

of iO.(Xo.tflo on a single deal: and.
Vkki:e.s. Another call is now pending for a
further gold lo.-.n of ?100 .HOO.O 0. which, but for
an outburst of popular indignation, would also
have been negotiated in the same secret man
ner and through the same syndicate:, and,
Whkke'S, Jt stands confessed that the gold
standard can only be upheld by so depleting
our paper currency as to force the prices of our
products below the Kuroptans. and even below
the Asiatic l vol. in order that we may sell in
foreign markets, thus aggravating the very
evils of which our people so bitterly cotsplain,
legrnding American lab ir and striking at the
ve:y uvindat.o-is of our civilization itself: and.
Wiixhuas. The advocates of the gold stand
srd persistently claim that the real cause of
our distress .md overproduction, that we have
pr .duie 1 s i much that it has made us poor,
which implies that the trade remedy Is to
lose the factory, abandon the farm and throw
a multitude of people out of employment a
loctri: e that leaves us absolutely without hope
or the future: and,
1ft UKitEAS, The diCcrence of exchange, be
tween sliver standard countries and gold stand
ard countries Is equivalent to a bounty equal
to the difference between the value of geld and
silver, In favor of the products of silver stand
ard countries exported in gold standard coun
tries, and a corresponding tariff against the
products Of gold standard countries exported
to silver using countries: and
Whereas, The cost of production otherwise
in the Old World, and particularly in China
and Japan, Is far less than the cost at which
similar products can be produced or manufac
tured in this country by American labor, with
out reducing our farmers, miners, mechanics,
manufacturers and other Industrial workers to
the level of Chinese coolies; therefore, be it
Ketulred, That, over and above all other ques
tions of policy, we are In favor of restoring to
the people of the United States the time-honored
money of the constitution, gold and silver,
not one. but both the money of Washington,
and Hamilton, and Jefferson, and Monroe, and
Jackson, and Lincoln to the end that the
American people may receive honest pay for
an honest product: the American debtor pay
his Just cbiigations ia an honest standard, and
not in a standard that is appreciated HO per

We therefore coniidently apjieal to the peo

ever important, even momentous they may ap

ties and affiliations, that they unite in one su

An Always-Present Power that Gives the
City Its ImiKirtancr.
"Ecclesiastic'" Rome is the stronghold
of a most tremendous fact, from what
ever point of view Christianity may be
considered. If one could, in imagina
tion, detach the head of the Catholic
church from the church, one would be
obliged to admit that no single living
man possesses the far-reaching and
lasting power which in each succeeding
papal reign belongs to the pope. He
hind the pope stands the fact which
confers, maintains" and extends that
power from centnry to century a
power which is one of the hugest ele
ments of the world's moral activity,
both in its own direct action and in the
counteraction and antagonism which it
calls forth continually.
It is the a.l-pervading n-esence of
this greatest fact, literally, in Christen
dom which has carried on Koine's im
portance from the (lays of the Ctesars,
a cross the chasm of t h da rk a ges. to th 9
days of the modern popes; anil it is this
really enormous importance v.hich
continually throws forward into cruel
relief the pucrilites and inanities of
the daily outward world. It is the
consciousness of that importance which
makes old Uoraan society what it is,
with its virtues, its vices, its preju
dices, and its strange, old-fashioned,
close-fisted kindliness: whi.-h makes
the contrast between the S.'turnaiia of
Shove Tuesday night and the cross
signed with ashes upon the forehead
on Ash Wednesday morning, between
the careless laughter of the Roman
beauty of Carnival, ami the tragic
earnestness of the same lovely face
when the great lady kneels in Lent be
fore the confessional to receive upon
her bent head the light touch of the
penitentiary's warn!, taking her turn,
perhaps, with a score of women of the
people. It is the knowledge of an al
ways present poweractive throughout
the whole world, which throws deep,
straight shadows, as it were, through
Roman character, just as in certain
ancient families there is a secret that
makes grave the lives of those who
know it. Marion Crawford, in Cen

Perhaps the most remarkable use to
which a tree is ever put is that of ex
tinguishing a burning house. The
ravenello tree, of Madagascar, serves
the natives of that country as a ready
made and very efficient natural fire ex
tinguisher. The leaves of this tree,
which are fully ten feet long and broad
in proportion, and .which are used to
beat the roofs of the native dwellings
in case of fire, contain large quantities
of water, even the leaf-stem being full
of small chambers or cells of pure wa-

that forms & conspicuous feature of the
Madagascar landscape. The ravenello
leaves not only serve the Madagascaus
this useful purpose, but form the mate
rial with which they roof and line their
houses. The bark of the tree, beaten
out fiat, serves as flooring, while the
trunk supplies timber for framing and
planking. Quantities of the fresh leaves
are sold in the markets, to take the
piaee of plates and dishes, and at all
seasons', the trunk, when an incision ia
made, yields a cool, sweet and whole

London, Jan. 2?. Though the gov
ernment officials here and in Paris and
in Berlin concur in denying all knowl
edge of an offensive and defensive al
liance between Russia and Turkey,
little confidence is placed in their con
fessions of ignorance. Semi-official
denials in a case like this are to be ex
pected, especially when the defeated
diplomats wish to conceal the truth or
prevent it being told. It is now re
called here that it was quite six months
after the conclusion of the Unkiar

by Russia, received absolutely definite

The United Press has reason to pre
dict that ere then the evidence of the
existence of a Russo-Tnrkish compact
will become so complete that further
denials will be useless. In the minis
terial circle it is understood that Sir
Philip Currie, the British ambassador
to Turkey, will be recalled shortly,
and that this action is due to the fact
that he has been over-reached and dis
credited in Constantinople.
The Speaker's Constantinople corre
spondent, whose accurate inside infor
mation gives his communications high
reliability, has written, under date of
January IS. that Russia is the absolute
master of the situation. The secret
compact guarantees the integrity of
the Ottoman empire, Russia agreeing
to assist in the restoration of onter in
Kurdistan, and also to defend the Dar
danelles. France has . made her
bargain with Russia; and will
consequently give her consent to
the compact. Germany is currying
favor with the czar. Austria will
maintain a neutrality and await her
opportunity. This, the correspondent
adds, is the end of the intervention of

It is believed that the Russo-Turkish
agreement is not embodied in a formal

Thousands Throne the Beach at Long
Branch to TCatrh the Ineffectual Efforts
Made to Full the. Famous Ocean (irey
honnd, the Steamer M. Panl, from Her
Cradle In the Stand Into Deep Water.
Loxo Brajtch, X. J., Jan. 27. Ten
thousand visitors from the numerous
resorts north and south of this place,
as well as from New York, Philadel
phia and the larger New Jersey towns,
llocked here to-dar and repaired to the
beach to watch the efforts made to
pull the steamer St. Paul, the famous
ocean greyhound, over the bar into
deep water. The ship was moved 170
feet seaward, but the flood tide was
not of sufficient duration to enable tho
! crews of the steamer and the wreok-
j ing companies to haul her into water j
; deep enough to float. There were 50 i
J powerful tugs opposite the St, Paul j
j ready to render assistance, but they j
I' were not utilized. j
Six immense anchors were planted
( in the sea about a ihousand yards i
j from the stranded vessel. Fastened to i
I the anchors were several steel hawsers j
which were connected with the pow- j
erful capstan on the stern of the ship. !
This capstan was rotated by steam i
power furnished by the steamer's boil- !
ers and engines. Everything was in!
readiness for the haul and soon after '
midnight the engines were started, j
The hawsers tightened, the I
capstan creaked, and inch by ineh j
the big St. Paul was pulled seaward, j
When the tide turned to the ebb, the '
boat had mov-;d nearly one-third of j
her length and was placed in a 'nore j
advantageous position, as, at low tide, i
she was only six feet in the sand and !
! in 11 feet of water. The strain on the j
I nawsers was Kept moderately taut :
j during the day in order to keep the j
j ship from agftin moving toward the j
; beach. j
I No attempt was made to float her',
! while the afternoon tide was at the j
j Hood. Those in charge predict that ;
. to-morrow's high tide will be higher
) than that of to-day, and with favor- t
; able conditions they expect to com- j
plete the work begun ,so auspiciously. I
j The sea was almost as quiet to-day j
j as the proverbial mill pond. This j
; state of aiTairs caused the life-saving '
j crews to remove from the ship the '
line thrown to her when stranded, :
which was used to run the breeches ;
buoy to land. j
All the passengers of the St. Paul '
I were taken to New York in tugs late
j yesterday afternoon, but the entire i
crew, numbering 4d ). including ro;tny '
women, remain on board, and have j
not come ashore since the St. Paul j
The officers of the St. Paul deny tha '
report that the vessel was injured
when she struck. Tlicy say there U
no water in her hold, and her plat-en
are jusi, as intact as the day she was
One of the novel features of the day
was the rigging of a telephone on
board the boat to connect with tha
shore. The shore end is connected
with the local telephone system, and
by this means the ship's officers are
able to communicate with their agents
in the city.
The scene on Ocean avenue in front
of the beached steamer resembled a
county fair: improvised lunch rooms,
cigar stands and traveling "speak
easies" furnished food and drink tc
the multitude. On the portico of one
big summer hotel, now closed, was a
large sign read'.ng: '"Seats to Let,"
and the enterprising man in charge
reaped a harvest of shekels.
