Aledo Democrat: The longer one
looks, the more confident he becomes
that he can see in Ben T. Cable the

Moreover he is immensely popular

candidate the Illinois democracy
could find. He is not very large, it's
true, but if he can't fill Shelby Cul

What Frw Coinage Meaim.
The St. Louis Chronicle explains
in the following very clear manner
the meaning of free coinage: '
First of all it means that on all
bullion of gold and silver presented
at the mints of the United States,
the government shall stamp its cer
tifieatc of weight and fineness.
Coinage is simply stamping on
the precious metals a government
certificate of their standard weight
and standard fineness so that thev
can circulate as standard money.
Free bi-metallic coinage means,
first of all, that all gold and silver
presented shall be so stamped with
out restriction or discrimination.
With free coinage, "as the word is
generally used, there may or may not
be reasonable charge for "the trouble
and expense of coining or stamping
the bullion. But there must not be
an unreasonable charge, or one that
will discriminate between the metals
or will in any way restrict the coin
age of either.
As gold and silver cannot circulate
Jreely from hand to hand without
Ihc government stamp, and it is a
matter of immemorial custom with
all governments to certify the weight
and fineness of the precious metals
by the impression of the coinage
stamp, it is clearly a gross injustice
to the people, as it is to every holder
of gold or silver bullion, for the gov
ernment to refuse its stamp to his
.bullion, as it is thus thrown out of
circulation as money, and deprived
f a great part of its value of at
least half, if it is entirely lemone
tized, since the coinage 'alue of
cither gold or silver is. at least, equal
to the intrinsic value or value for
nse in the arts.
Free iiimi'tallic coinage or '"free
and unlimited coinage.'' as it is
sometimes expressed, means thus
that the government shall not hinder
the demand for either of the precious
metals for use as money, but shall
stamp all bullion, of both metals,
that is not needed for use in the
And as 'free coinage means this
primarily, it means also a natural,
uncontrolled, unmanipulated curren
cy, subject only to the laws of sup
ply and demand, governed only by
the supply of the two precious met
als, and responsive at once to the de
mands of trade, while it is not re
sponsive to attempts at manipulation
either for sudden contraction or sud
In other words the free and un
limited coinage of gold and silver
means an honest and unmanipulated
currency, the only possible and tin
If you believe in the rights of the
people, if vou are opposed to those
, who would deceive and rob them,
stand out for and stand up for this
unmanipulated and honest currency.
Stand for it no matter who is against
it. If you are single handed for it,
stand for is still. Surrender noth
ing. Concede nothing. It is an is
sue on which the welfare of the
human race is at stake for those who
can control the circulating medium

The Fifty-third congress was
elected for tie purpose of repealing
the odious and burdensome tariff
laws of this country. There were
other issues joined between the par
ties, and in the east there was a no
table effort before the election, as
there is now alter it, to belittle the
question of th.? tariff. But it failed.
Mr. Cleveland was an experiment as
president up to the date of his fa
mous reform message to congress.
Before that he was regarded as an
untried leader of the democrotic
party; after that he became a force
in the economic battle be
ing waged ly the Morrisons, the
Carlislcs and the Millses against
all plutocracy and class legislation.
The warfare vas a long and a mem
orable one, and the people linallv
triumphed. They learned what they
wanted and t icy asked for it at the
ballot box. I: was not a victory of
the outs against the ins. It was not
a contest for 1 he spoils of oflice. It
was a triumpl of the oppressed over
their oppresses. It was a contest of
the people against the subsidists.
The average voter is not going to
forget tariffs on account of a money
stringency. He has been so long
familiar "with a ease of chronic
stringency in his own case that
the word does not frighten him.
He-expects a cheaper breakfast table
and a cheaper coat under the new re
gime, and if h; docs not get it he will
know the reason why. Congress
will be expect.-d to do all in its power
to relieve the linancial situation, but
its chief duty is a revision of the
tariff laws and its work must begin
immediately after the extra uessTon
convenes. Xtbody understands this
better than th " democratic members
themselves. The unwise financial
laws to which the president's procla
mation alludes include the McKinley
A Trai- Goldfish Story.
At the New York hospital they relate
a enrious occurrence bearing on the hi
bernation of fishes. In the conservatory
In the tipper p irt of the building they
had several gl.iss jars in which were
goldfish, which is a species of carp. One
morning the caretaker found a jar broken
and the water frozen through and
through, the fisa of course being as rigid
as ice. The lump was taken away and
thrown into an old rubbish barrel, where
it remained sev.-ral weeks.
One March di.y the sun was unusually
strong, and it split the cylinder of ice,
but what was t he astonishment of the
caretaker to e the tail of a fish wrig
gling out of a i art of the broken block.
The actual fret zing had not killed the
fish, which was removed to another tank,
where it swims about as if nothing had
befallen it. Ocr Animal Friends.
Ice In the Uorernment Buildings.
One gets a vivid notion of the magni
tude of the departments from the vast
quantities of it e and coal which are re
quired to quench the thirst of the 23,000
clerks and keep them warm. The treas
ury consumes a ton and a half of ice
daily, taking at average the year round.
An equal quai.rity is used in the war,
Btate and navy building. But the de
partment of tho interior is fie great de
vourer of ice. Including the pension of
fice, it gobbles up from five to six tons
every 24 hours.
The quantiti s utilized are variable.
Each department makes its own contract
for ice, bids being advertised for annual
ly. No definite amount to be provided
is agreed upon. The contractor gets as
much for suppl;-ing all the frozen water
required, whatever it maybe. All the
departments, together with their branch
es, consume 24,000 pounds every day.

The remakable success which the
Scott Medical Institute has achieved
in every department of its practice
has created a good deal of comment,
not only among the people who are
afflicted with chronic diseases, but
also among brother practition

What is the cause of this large
measure of success?" The answer
may be stated in a few words. In
the first place the physicians of the
Scott Medical Institute are skilled
