ATLANTA. Strjit. T.:e Constitution
prints a let t it from President t'ievrlnnd
to Governor Nortbt'ii in which the presi
dent states his position on the lin.'int'ial
question at sn:n length. The ie:terisin
reply to one written ly tioveriiur Norf lien
on the 1.1; h ii'.st. The governor refuses to
pive his letter out for fiuMication, but it
in known that it presented a graphic con
dition of tiie political situation in Georgia
and the wiuth, and tinted upon the presi
dent the expediency of a public utterance
from him more comprehensive than his
recent message as to the proper jKilicy to
be pursued by eoustress upon uuestions af
fecting the stringency of the times and the
needs of tlie people.
sa He Has Kern Very implicit.
The president's rep'.y is dated Sept. 25
and i- as follows:
"My Dkai: S::;: I hardly know how to
reply to your le'ter of the 1.1th iust. It
eems to me that I nm quite plainly on
record concerniuj; the financial question.
My le'ter ac:-eptmj; the nomination to llie
presidency when read in connection with
the message lately wut to t he conitress in
cxtruurdiuer? oession appears to me to lie
very explicit. I want a currency that is
table and safe in the hands of our people.
1 will not ktiowin'y he implicated in a
condition that will jus;!y make me in
the least degree answerable to any laborer
or farmer in the L ui'.ed Stales for a
shrinkage in the purcnasing power of the
dollar be has received for a full dollar's
worth of work or for a auod dollar's
worth of the product of his toil.
Want Credit with O'lu-r Nation.
"I do not only want our currency to be
of such a character that all kinds of dol
lars w ill !e of equal purchHs.m: power at
home, but I want it to be of such a char
acter as will demonstrate abroad our wis
dom and good faith, thus placing upon a
Ih ni foundai ion our credit anionic the na
tions of the earth. I want our tiuaucial
conditions and th laws relating to our
currency safe and reassuring, that those
who have money will spend und invest it
in busine-s und new enterprises, instead of
board. ni; it. You cannot cure fright by
calling it foolish and imrea.soiiable, and
you cannot prevent the frightened :ua.i
from hoarding l is money.
His i'osition on Silver.
'I want good, sound, and stable nionev
and a condition of conlideuce that wiil
keep it in use. Y it h ;n t lie limits of what
I have written I am a friend of silver, but
1 believe its proper place in our currency
can only be fixed by a readjustment of our
currency legislation and ti.e inauguration
of a consistent and comprehensive finan
cial scheme. 1 think siic-n a thing can only
be entered upon prolitably and hopefully
after the repeal of the law, which is
chargtd with ull our linancial woes. In
the present stale of the public mind this
law cannot be built upon nor patched in
such a way as to relieve the situation.
Opposed to I nlluiiteil toinuse.
"I am, therefore, opposed to the free and
unlimited coinage of silver by thiscountry
alone and independently, and I am in
favor of the immediate and unconditional
repeal of the purchasing clause of the so
called Sherman Jaw. 1 confess I am as
tonished at the opposition iu the senate
to such prompt action as would relieve
the present unfortunate situation. My
daily prayer is that the delay occasioned
by such opposition may not be the cause
of plunging the country into deeper de
pression than it has yet known, und that
the 1). mocrutlc party may not be justly
livid responsible for such a castrophe.
Youis very truly, Gltovtl: Clkvelaxd."

The only explauati n of the accident so

Lake Erie tram, clai ns thi.t he was run

CINCINN ATI, Sept. 2S. The Enquirer says:
"The result of the vote among the train

and that the vote would not be canvassed
until tomorrow. It has lieen ascertained
that the tirciuen express a disposition to
resist the cut to the point of striking, Ten
per cent, of them voted to accept the re
duction. Conductors and Knginers Opposed.
"The brakemeu. it is thought, have cast
about the same vote. The p issenger con
ductors are unitedly iu favor of accepting
the cut, but a small portion of the freight
men are for a strike. Among the engiueers
there is a division of sentiment, with the
majority nuaiust going oat. The men can
not strike unless there is a two-thirds
vote favoring one cast cast in every class
of labor composing the federation. This
has not been done. It can be authorita
tively stated that there will be co trouble.
The chairmen now in this city practically
admit that the result is against a strike."
Logical Sequence of the Matter.
H. J. Underbill, of the firemen, said: "A
logical sequence of the failure to strike on
the Big Four will le that the articles of
the federation must be changed, so that
instead of a unit vote of all the six organ
izations being necessary to declare a strike
a majority of t' e six can order one. Un
der ordinary circumstances the fed ration
could not change its rules uuti. the regular
meeting next May, but an extraordinary
exigency lfas arisen." As justification for
this sort of action he said that if this strike
was not declared every railway in the
country would cut wages.
EIGHT-HOUR LAW INVALID.

Wichita, Kas., Sept. US. In the district
court Judge Reed has declared unconsti
t ut ion 1 the state law constituting eight
hours a day's labor. He is the first dis
trict judge to pass on this act. He holds
the law contrary to bol h the state and fed
eral constitutions, aud declares it a re
straint on the liberty of action guaran
teed by both which permits the making
of a lawful contract in a lawful way. He
also holds that it is in direct conflict with
both the bill of rights of the state ind
with the fourteenth amendment of the
federal constitution. C! tuns aggregating
hundreds of thousands of dollars for over
time under this act are pending agt'.iust
every county and city iu the state.

l.ot isvii.LK, Ky., Sept. The situa
tion on the Imis. ilie and Nashville rail
road is less critical. The switchmen and
yard engineers who struck have returned
to work under a temporary truce. The
men agreed to work fcr twentyfotir hours
pending further cons;iieraliou of the liual
action to tie takeu.
The switchmen, it is understood, seized
upon the difficulty over the pa-ses re
quired by the company to admit them to
the yards as only a pretext. They have
lieen dissatisfied since the 10 per cent, re
duction in wages went into effect and de

The Recent Mob at Itoanoke.
Roanoke, Va., Sept. 28. The coroner's
jury has rendered a verdict as to the kill
ing of members of the recent mob to the
effect that the men came to their deaths
"by weapons in the hands of men or sol
diers of the Roanoke Light infant ry under
the command of Captain John Baird and
other officers," and that- the evidence
showed that he was acting under instruc
tions of Mayor Trout. The jury thinks
it best that a further investigation be held

not say whether it is the mob or the may
