FRIENDS OF SILVER
Bi-Metal!ic League Gathers at

gan off. Too springer Asks for Souie
Washington, Feb. 23. The Bimetallic
League convention met here yesterday
with a good attendance of silver men and
some women, including the famous Kan
sasser Mrs. Ix-ase. General Weaver was
also present while General A. J. Warner
presided. Weaver was one of the first
speakers. He referred to Chairman War
ner and said that twelve years had elapsed
since they had joined in making the bct
fight possible in the house of represent a
tives for the free coinage of silver, and he
called upon his friends to lear witness that
the cause had made considerable progress.
The tVest Wants Kverj thing (inml.
Mrs. lyase, of Kansas, then addressed
the convt niion, and was frequently ap
plauded. She said that the people of the
west had fell the crushing effects of legisla
tion enacted by the two great political par
ties for the past thirty years. This legis
lation she compared "w ith the conspicuous
patriotism of Jefferson I la vis;"' legislation
that gave to the state of Massachusetts
many millions of dollars and deprived tic
western farmers of the slightest recogni
tion. The pecplu of the west, she said, de
manded free trade, fiec silver, and free cit
izens; and if there is unvthiui; else good in
sight they are in favor of that also. They
realised that God was the first to hestow
free trade, and they held that congress had
no right to restrict it. They demanded
competition in the open markets of the
world, the expense of the government to be
maintained by nn income tax.
Two Very Obnoxious Johnnies.
She attributed the present financial
condition of the country to the "joint ef
forts of John Bull and John Sherman, who
fastened the existing statutes upon us."
Speaking of the tariff Mrs. Lease said that
the duty placed on tin was one of the
many reasons that brought the Republi
can party to its preseLt condition. 'And,''
she added, "the jingling of that tin was
the melody of the dead march of the late
Had People, England and VP all street.
In his address senator Stewart said that
the secretary of the treasury, when he
wanted to learn the wishes of the people,
usually visited New York bankers. Not
only does he do this, but he Uses his influ
ence to send commissioners to Europe to
beg of foreign governments the permission
to exercise our right of legislation. Eng
land is the greatest robber in the world.
She makes 1:0 treaty of annexation.
When she wauts a country annexed she
sends her ships and takes it by force and
does not- ask the permission of the United
States or any other country. Wall street,
the senator said, nominated both candi
dates of the political parties for president
and from thither man need the friends of
silver expect anything. The people, he
said, saw that the last cnmpa'gn was a
fraud and would right it fur years hence.
Silver at the f.ettom of Everything.
General Warner said that free and un
limited c.'iaaje of silver, was the most im
portant question now before the American
people cr 'oefore the civilized world. It
overshadowed the tariff question which, in
his opinion, was but a result of the restrict
ed coinage of silver, and it was really at
the bottom of the Irish question. It, was
also at the bottom of the labor question
and was responsible for the condition of
the laboring men. Three-fourths of the
value of gold came from its monetary use.
lie urged the league to light not only
against the repeal of the Sherman act, but
to labor until silver was put on a purity

Other addresses in favor of free coinage

Washington. Feb. ?. Dr. Joseph
Gardner, of Bedford, lnd., has advised
Miss Clara Barton, president of the Amer
ican National Red Cross, that he has

offering to humanity," for the purpose of

tion, a tract of land, TS'i acres, or more
than one square mile in extent, in the

sake, yet it has upon it a village, a post
office, barns, tenant houses, orchards,
forests, including groves of sugar maple!
quarries of the famous Bedford oolitic
Hone, a beautiful river frontage of one

"A trunk line of railway passes through
it, three other lints of railways are near it,
making it t;.si!y accessible for shipping
purposes to all parts of the country. For
speedy transit it leaves little to be desired.
It is three hours from Louisville, four
hours from Cincinnati, four hours from
Indianapolis, six hours from St. Louis,
and seven hours from Chicago." Dr. Gard
ner closes his letter to Miss Barton with
the words: '-i'car friend, God willing, you
have seen the worst, and 'at even tide there
shall be light.' " Miss Barton has accepted

Blodgett, one of the American counsel, will
also sail from New York Saturday per the
Morgan's Farewell Speech.
Senator Morgan made a farewell speech
in the senate executive session yesterday
whi:h remained in session several hours
to hear him discuss Hawaiian annexation.
His speech was a vigorous plea for the an
nexation and a general argument for a
more extensive foreign policy for the
Proceedings in Congress.
Washington, Feb. ii. The first thing
done in the sen::te yesterday was the read
of Washington's farewell address by Sena
tor Manderson, president pro tern., after

The "Sou" Canal Is Kree Again.
Washington, Feb. i:l. As the result of
correspondence between Secretary of State
Foster and Sir Julian Fauncefote, the
British minister, a new "order in council,"
has been issued by the Canadian govern
ment regulating the tolls of the Dominion
canal for the season of 103. The effect
of this new order is to abolish the rebate
on the tolls and the regulation against
trans-shipped goods, thereby removing all
the discriminations of which the govern
ment of the United States has so long com
plained. In accordance with this diplo
matic arrangement the president has issued
a proclamation revoking the tolls levied on
Canadian vessels and cargoes in the Sault
Ste. Marie canal.

o'clock in the parlor of the Miller resi
dence under a floral bower. Dr. Bart let t
performed the ceremony. There were some
friends, intimate with the family, present

Congress Is Away Behind.
Washington, Feb. ii. Con nting the
4th of March as a full day there remains
only nine more days before the expiration
of th's congress, and the amount of work
before the two houses to be accomplished

ing to those legislators who see the hours
slipping by aud apparently so little bein"
done. Up to the present time there is but
one of the thirteen regular appropriation

houses, and that is not yet a law for it has
not yet received tne signature of the presi
