, Note a Little Inconsistency.
! "In your Klmira speech yon advocated
free bimetallic-coinage. In your Albany
speech on New Year's eve you advocated
tiie reM-al of the net of W
which gives the people more money by ihn
difference lift ween silver certificates issued
on the coinage of 2t,0u0,(ioti worth of silver
per Hinmm and the amount of treasury

also propose to deny to the farmers and

Bland Akel to Obey the ":11 Trust."
fcThe lead of Nevada for free coinage
seems odious to you, although the lead of
the Chamber of Commerce of New York, a
representative body of the gold trust, you
follow with alacrity. The gold trust,
through the Chamber of Commerce, de
mands the repeal of the act of 1S!K). You
echo that demand, and advise Mr. Bland,
the chairman of t he house committee on
coinage, to obey it. If he will do so, and
pretend to be for free coinage while legis
lating to limit the use of silver, you as
sure hi tu of the respect, admiral ion and
Mipport of the Democracy of New York. .
"Same Old Coon a-Settin' on a Hail."
"Are you aware. Mr. Hill, that this is the
old story; that the people of the south and
west have lieen assured ever since silver
was rejected as money of t he respect ami
admiration of the New York Democracy if
they would co-operate with the represen
tatives of the gold trust in contracting the
real money of the world- to gold alone.
There is no doubt that every sieculator in
Asiatic, products who buys cheap silver in
the United States, coins it into riiees or
other Asiatic money and exchanges it at
par in Asia for wheat, cotton and other
products, and pockets t he difference, will
admire and support any western man who
will aid in perpetuating t his extortion.
STEWART HAS A NARROW ESCAPE.
Came Near Keniltiig the ;vertior I'n
leerveil CiiiKrt tilxt inns.
kYour Klmira speech stripped of the
suggestion of the employment of the cuttle-fish
policy to deceive the people would
have met with the unbounded gratitude
and admiration of the producers of "wealth
in the United States. I was so much im
pressed with your utterances in favor of
free bimetallic coinage that I prepared a
letter of congratulation to you. and re
frained from sending it on account of the
concluding portion of that speech, where
in you suggested the possibility of obtain
ing a partisan advantage by non-action
during the present session of congress, be
cause t he president and a majority of the
senate were ficpublican. ami might share
in the popularity sure to follow the free
Co natre of silver.
The Senator (irons Intiiilive.
fMr. Mill, have you discovered that that
nr( Sherman lawj must inevitably lead to
lii-iietaliic coinage to prevent the depreci
ation of silver? Do you know that there
are nearly K"0,Oiin.oii of silver coin in the
United States, including bullion, await
ing coinage, and that no means is pro
vided by law for the redemption of the
treasury notes issued under t lie act of ls-
except the gold and silver coin received for
duties and taxes and t he silver coin pro
duced from the bullion acquired tinder
that act Has the gold trust ascertained
t hat t here is no possibility under existing
law of accumulating sutlicient gold to pay
the nat iotial debt and redeem the outstand
ing greenback and- legal tender treasnry
notes issued for the purchase of silver with
out a very large use of silver coin for such
purposes? Do you see that the existing
law must inevitably force all parties to ad
vocate free bimetallic-coinage?
Some 1'iilnters for the Democracy.
"I am sorry, if you an- really in favor of
free bimetallic coinage, as" declare! iu
your Klmira speech, that you have fallen,
into the trap set by the gold trust and are
now willing to aid them in their efforts to
confine the real money of the world to gold
alone. If the Democracy of the south and
west adopt your policy and make a retro
grade movement at the present session of
congress the people will place very little
contidence in promises to restore free
coinage when your party shall have ol
taiucd control of every department of the

"JTIiose who are against it advise the peo
ple that they must wait for a favorable
opportunity. I't ' assure you. my dear

li Illleu Terry's sluice Dresses.
lyiMioN, Jan. 1. Kllen Terry's costumes
for her role in Henry VIII mark the acme
of modern achievement in stage adorn
ment. The British Museum lias la-en ran
sacked for drawings of the period, and it ia
claimed that absolute historical accuracy
has lM-en maintained in the beautiful and
artistic costumes devised. Iu the first
scene Miss Terry wears a long trained robe
of gray brocade, interwoven with steel
adorned appliques and embroidered in dull
gold. The sleeves are long and full. The
skirt opens in front over a pet t icoat be
jeweled and heavily einbi-oidered. The
hair is worn in a tight coil, a black and
gold rap hiding the tresses.
In the second act the gown is entirely .'
of black brocade, the only relief being a
gold border on 1 he cap and a fur liorder on
the sleeve. The third costume ia of
Tyrian purple brocatel, with high stand
ing collar of black fur and wing-shaped
fiir-lMirdered sleeves, the small head dress
matc hing. The fourth is entirely white
and may be described as a sort of ideal
ized modern tea gown, with telling re
flects of dead gold here aud there. Miss
Terry wears no cap with this costume, but
her false white hair falls loosely beneath
light muslin draia-ry. The hair was Miss
Terry's mother's, ami u as cut off close for
tiie re lief of neuralgia.
