Evidently resenting the imputa
tion that fbilauelphia is not the
place where a republican national
convention should consistently be
held, an exchange remarks: "It was
entirely proper that Philadelphia
should get the republican national
convention. It is a town where tbev
are able to stuff tbe ballot boxes to
tbe extent of K9.00O votes at a single
election. It is the town where ex-
rcpublican officials hatched tbe con
spiracy to rob tbe national treasury
of f 100. 000. 003 by subnitutiog coun
terfeit notes for good ones. It is in a
atate where brilerv and corruption
are rampant and are rewarded hind-
Homely. It Is tbe state of vjitay, tbe

for tbe campaign, and Philadelphia
check for $l00.0u0 was too much for
tbe cupidity of a national committee."
It will be remembered that imme
diately after tbe last national election
tbe cotton and woolen mills of New
England began reducing tbe wages of
their operatives until a point was
reached where tbe working people
were not getting enough to keep soul
and body together. Strikes and lock
outs resulted. Now tbe mills are be
ginning to increase wages, but tbey
have not got back where tbey were
when the reductions commenced. Yet
there will be raised a great bowl

JACKSON WINS THE WATCH.
It is not probable that the single .
gold standard bill, which was rushed j
through tbe house under whip and
spur by the republican majority,
will make such rapid progress in the!
senate. There tbe rules lavor care
ful consideration and protect the
rights of the minority. The iniquities
of the bill will le shown forth in a
manner which has - been impossible
under tbe rush and baste of tbe bouse
debate. It will be demonstrated and
tbe administration leaders will be
practically forced to admit, first, that
under its provisions full legal tender
silver will be redeemable in gold for
tbe first time in tbe history of the
world, and second, that the secretary
of the treasury will be inevitably com
pelled to issue gold bonds to an al
most unlimited extent for tbe pur
pose of buying gold with which to
redeem the silver that Wall street
interests will mercilessly thrust
upon tbe treasury for redemption.
These bonds will then be used as the
basis of national bank issues to supply
currency for the needs of the country.
So dangerous is tbe measure to honest
business interests that it is not improb
able that vital amendments may be
made to tbe measure before it is per
mitted to come to a vote in the sen
ate. It is even possible that the bill
may be abandoned under tbe stress of
a linancial panic already imminent

was learned recently, are niakiug some

and other place. The recruits are
found chiefly among the Irish-Amer-

other nationalities are also volunteer

Europe has taken 40 or f0 vohm

of the Atlantic are cared for and hur
