One week from today will settle it.
So the Union has pone into the
hennery business. There will be
none to dispute that the Eighteenth
street breed is the Shanghai.
The deductions on the part of the
Union as to what is going on in the
democratic party are quite refresh
ing, when it is considered that they
come from a paper that never knows
what is happening in its own party.
Yalb, which was disgraced this
year for the first time in its history,
has been the alma mater of the bear
ers of some of the most famous
names in the country's history, but
the less distinguished institution at
Jacksonville, 111., is to produce the
man of the hour this year.
The New York World's corre
spondent declares that Bryan's jour
ney through Indiana shows him to
be a born leader of men. This is
something of which the average citi
zen was aware long before it was
discovered by the New York World,
remarks the" St. Louis Republic.
In view of that most elegant
phraseology which the Union adopts
in referring to The Abgcs as a hen,
the suggestion may be pardonable
that the morning paper is the only
one according to history which has
set now for nearly a quarter or a cen
tury on porcelain eggs expecting
them to hatch.
The Union has fallen completely
into the ways of the general run of
republican papers this year. As a
matter of course it was late catching
on, but the force of its argument to
day, anent the exact reproduction of
the London Financial New's article
in Toe Abgcs of Sunday is fraud!"
Now that the exact reproduction has
been published of articles appearing
in the London Financial News, which
are so damaging to the anti-bimetal
lie efforts and which have conse
quently been denounced as forgeries
and all that kind of thing, the repub
licans are oesiaring tbat the articles,
the authenticity of which have been
established, are not the ones they
mean. And the Union of this city is
of coarse one of the papers so charg
ing. Anere are none so blind as
those who won't see.
Even newspaper men," says
Newspaperdom, "indulge in exhibi
tions of foolishness, but in no wav
do they make such ludicrous specta
cles of themselves as when they in
stitute libel snits against each other.
One wnnld think that it . is about
enough for publishers to be so fre
quently victimised by persons who
imagine they have a grievance,
without themselves going to law
gainst their fellows." Yes, that is
o. The lamentable example which
is set occasionally in Book Island
should be sufficient to disfuat any
member of the profession, and set
him against making a spectacle of
himself for the publie to grin at.
Dr. Claudius B. Kinyon enjoys that
unenviable distinction single handed
and alone in Rock Island at the pres
One of the most novel of all the
election bets yet heard of has been
made at Coalton. Ohio, between Rev.
John Oiler, the local Baptist pressh
er, and David Armstrong, Jr., a
prominent coal operator. If Mc
Kinley is elected president Rev.
Oiler agrees to preach a sermon with
his coat, vest and trousers turned
wrong side out. If Bryan is elected
Armstrong agress to attend church
with his habiliments wrong side out
and hear Rev. Oiler preach. A writ
ten agreement waa signed and f 10

Most politically this year and Dr. J.
6. Evans, of Abingdon, well known
in this city, is one of them. A dis
patch says: "Dr. J. G. Evans, pres
dent of Hedding college, has come
out for Bryan and free silver. Dr.
Evans took a very active part in the
late national prohibition convention,
and is known as the leader of his
party in the west. He is now doing
noble work for Bryan. His espousal
of the silver cause will bring many
votes to Bryan from the ranks of the
One of the most practical hygenic

issued quarterly at 311 Fifth
avenue. New York. The last issue
opens with an article on Insomnia"
by Dr. Felix L. Oswald, followed bv
"Fruit as Food Medicine" by Dr.
Benjafield. In the "Cycling for
Health" department is a very ex
haustive and finely illustrated arti
cle on bicycle saddles in fact all the
contributions are timely and inter
esting and may be read with profit
by all classes. The price of "Health
Culture" is only 50 cents per annum.
If the gold standard and the Wall
street clique have their way wheat
will go to 25 cents a bushel. Read what
John I. Webster, the leading Repub
lican orator of Nebraska has to say
about cheap wheat:
"The silver coinage men tell us that
free coinage will advance the price of
wheat to what it formerly was, or
nearly so. They tell us that wheat 'will
sell for $1. Suppose it does. I want to
ask them whether the people of Ne
braska are most interested in high
wheat or cheap wheat. In our state
perhaps 25,000 farmers raise wheat Cay
tnat each of those farmers has a fam
ily of five, that makes 125.000 people In
Nebraska interested in high prices for
wheat. But how about the 850.000 oth
er people in Nebraska who buy wheat
flour? Are they not interested tn hav
ing cheap wheat? I leave it to them
whether this JelTcrsonian bimetallism
to raise the rrice of wheat is what they
It certainly Is. Mr. Webster Is mis
taken when he assumes that the people
of the United States favor the Impov
erishment of the farmers. They want
the farmer to have a fair price for his
wheat, and the workman to have a fair
wage for 1 !s toil. Gold monometallism
means cheap wheat, low wages, cheap
men, foreclosed mortgages, ruined
homes, and the death of the republic
Show me a man who manes anoney out
of tegislatloa and I wUI show yaw a mna

Silver or Nothing.
The following serves to show how the
United States treasury meets its obli
gations, and is the nature of an object
"Constable William Swinburn Is an
ex-soldier. He is also a pensioner.
"This morning Mr. Swinburn received
a check for J36. this being the amount
due him each three months. He car
ried the check to the treasury depart
ment and asked the official to give him
either United States greenbacks or
gold. He explained that he wanted to
send the money to Toronto, Can., and
that there was a 10 per cent, discount
on our silver in that country. He could
not afford to lose $3.60.
"The gentleman behind the screen
Informed him that it was not possible
to comply with his request. It was a
case of silver or nothing.
"Mr. Swinburn concluded not to ac
cept the latter, at least temporarily, and
carried his check away."
And Mr. McKinley (free silver advo
cate until the St. Louis convention)
says that no money is too good for an
old soldier. They paid him greenbacks
during the war. The government pays
him silver now. J. Pierpont Morgan
has the gold.

Always In the history of the world
the men who have attacked the poses
sors of special privileges, the leaders
who have ranked humanity higher
than wealth, have met the charge of
demagogy. Cromwell and his followers
were demagogues In the estimation of
the lords and gentlemen of England.
Jefferson met bravely the reproach of
demagogy when, as a member of the
Virginia house of burgesses. he
checked, as he believed for the time,
the development of an American aris
tocracy by prohibiting laws in recog
nition of entailment and primogeniture.
The world has never harlmred more
conspicuous demagogues thr.n William
Lloyd Garrison and Wendell rhillips.
nor in the crisis of today are the pros
perous tory merchants of Boston more
harmoniously united in antagonism to
the men who are fighting for the free
dom of all labor than were they in 1S5S
to those who preached from dingy
printing offices and on street corners
the revolutionary doctrine that black
men should not be enslaved. New
