"When tho silver question rgots
Teal troublcsomo some of tho Bo-publican
party possibly encouraged
& tho talk about an international
monotary conferonco advise
tho party to fall back on tho
platform adopted at Minneapolis
in 1892. Lot us quoto in
full the paragraph of that declaration
touching silver, or bimetallism
It is as follows: "Tho American
people, from tradition and interest,
favor bimetallism, and tho
party demands tho use of both
gold and silver as standard money,
with such restrictions and undor
such provisions, to be determined
by legislation, as will socuro tho
maintenance of tho parity of values
of tho two motals. so that tho pur
chasing and debt-paying power of
tho dollar, whether ol silver, goia
or paper, shall bo at all times
equal Tho interest of tho producers
of tho country, its farmers
and its working men, domand that
every dollar, paper or com, issued
bv tho Government shall bo as
good as any other. We commend
the wise and patriotic stops aire
taken by our Govern
ftrnearly three years ago,
is not sufficiently specific at all.
Tho conventions which aro now,
with much flourish of rhetoric,
.standing gallantly by tho platform
of 1892 tho last official declaration
of tho Bepublicau party in national
convention assembled aro
merely dodging tho issue. Tho
Minneapolis platform is a mere
glittering generality an
of words that will not bear
analysis. It is an cxtromcly flimsy
foundation for a profession of bimetallism.
It presents no plan
but that of waiting for an international
conference. The commendation
of "tho wiso and patriotic
stops already- taken by our Government
to socuro an international
conference" has much present significance.
Almost three years
have elapsed and theso "wiso and
patriotic steps" have led to nothing.
"Now because there is a possibility
"that another conference shall be
called, and delegates from this
country havo boon conditionally
.appointed, shall tho people of this
country fold thoir arms and wait
again? Or shall they, rather, push
steadily forward in tho causo of bimetallism,
and bo ready to tako
hold of tho subject vigorously, intelligently
and practically, if, as
usual, thoro should bo no international
Tho bimotallio sentiment is of
rapid, growth in all parties. There
is a demand tor words that burn.
Theio is a cry for a bill of particulars
as to former dsclarations for
bimetallism. Abstract resolutions
about honest and incontrovortiblo
'money do not suit tho times. Tho
Minneapolis resolution was a good
enough thing to dodgo with, but
tho country is past the dodging
The majority of tho delegates to
tho international conforonco, if one
shall bo hold,will be friendly to
.A'cr. They should bo sustained by
work at homo. Now phraseology
is needed in platform literature.

Tho stato of Florida was evenly
divided, whilo tho representatives
of Idaho and Novada wore absent.
A careful analysis of tho voto
discloses some curious and instructive
facts. Neither party nor sectional
lines wore regarded in tho
division. Tho attompts of tho
leaders on cither side to keep thoir
followers togothor woro altogether
in vain. Men voted according to
the prevailing sentimont of tho
constituencies in somo
and in others
lot us run out tho life, boats.
ipon a question of the first
importance to all parts of tho
Union. When it is remembered
that tho whole strength of tho administration
influenco was exerted
for tho passago of tho bill, tho f.ict
that a majority of tho Democratic
votes woro given against it is significant.
It is a noticablo fact that tho
three great states of Ohio, Illinois
and Missouri gave 34 votes against
a gold basis and only 14 for it.
Ohio led off with 4 for and 13
against tho measure; Illinois, 6 for
and 11 against; Missouri, 4 for and
10 against. New York and all
Now England gavo 43 votes for and
only 7 against. Tho Southern
States gavo 2G votes for and G7
against. This shows that geographical
lines, as well as party lines,
The Governor yesterday sent to
tho council tho names of Col. Mc-
Cord and C. W. Leitch for members
of tho board of control and
auditor respectively. Mr. Leitch
has filled tho position of auditor
for tho past six months, and has
performed tho duties in a manner
that is creditable to himself and
tho Territorials administration, and
wo trust that every member of tho
council will voto for his confirmation,
as ho is in every way worth'
of tho position. As to Col. Mc-cord,
it gives tho Gazette pleasure
to say that he is ono of Maricopa's
best and most capablo men, and
will fill with credit tho high posi;
tion to which ho has been appointed.
Both men aro honorable,
worthy citizens. Gazette.
According to terms now agreed
upon, China is to pay tho Japs tho
sum of two hundred and fifty mil-lions
of dollars indemnity. It is
a certainty that compelling China
to meot this cnoimous amount at
this timo will have tho effect of
causing a riso in tho markot value
of silver in this country, and in
simple anticipation of it, silver has
slightly risen in price in tho eastern
money centres already.
Talmaoe, tho illustrious Now
York divine, pertinently declares
that "tho churches of God ought to
bo so many stations,
not so much to help those who aro
in smooth waters, but thoso who
havo been shipwrecked." Como
Tho ono who originated tho idea
of domonotizing silver was a demon
in spirit if not in body. As proof
thereof wo call attention to tho
prcsnt depression of businoss, tho
want of employment by millions of
persons, tho reduction of business
markot prices and tho hundreds
of thousands of impoverished
farmers, morchants and laboring
people many of whom havo been led
to suicido through want and despon
dency, all of which aro tho consequences
of demonetization of silver.
That is the reason why they call
this diabolical process "demon"

Q'ho three to bo appointed by tho

the bimotallists in tho majoiity of
tho American delegation, which
will voto as a unit. There is

into consideration tho fact that this
isa silver producing and silver using
country, tho American

tho two motals working side by side

,THE GOLD BOND VOTES BY
Tho most damnablo act that was
over perpetrated upon tho American
peoplo was tho Sherman Act of 18-73,
changing tho standard of value
from silvor to gold, and demonetizing
silver. Statistics show that
from that time on down to the present
timo, thoro has been a gradual
shrinkago in values, in wages, farm
produces and everything that wo
havo to buy money with and tho
end is not yet. Tho gold stadard
regime has brought nothing but distress,
hardshps and suffering to tho
toiling millions, whilo it has mado
millionaires and multi-millionaires
in untold numbers at tho expence
of tho "plain people," as they aro
now termed. Wc don't know just
whero tho line is drawn, but presume
at the millionaire point.

Gila valley had been as successfully

That tho address of the executive
committee of tho American Bimetallic
league should receive a harty
popular indorsement in Colorado
was to havo been expected. Tho
interviews gathered by Tho JVeics
correspondents in all of tho principal
towns and cities of tho stato
show a Very largo, almost unan
imous public sentiment in favor of
making free silver coinage tho
paramount issue in tho near presidential
campaign, and tho organization
of a party with that end in
view which will gather to itself the
bimotallists of all parties and display
a solid front ip tho gold
That such a movement will make
slower progress in tho states
whero the mining induscry is un
known, and where there is loss
knowledge of the coinago question,
must bo admitted. But yet it is
noticeable that a sentiment favorable
to a return to bimetallism is
rapidly gaining ground. This will
bo acceleratd by tho report of tho
special committee on tho causes of
tho prevailing depression in agricultural
prices, which ought to
havo a wide circulation in tho
wheat-growing and cotton producing
states. When Western farmers
and Southern planters fully realize
tho relations of silver to wheat
and cotton and other staples, and
can bo mado to understand that
thoy aro being driven to tho poor-house
by the exactions of the singlo
gold standard, thero will be a revolution
in tho sentiment of those
states for which tho anti-slavery
uprising in tho GO's will furnish
the only parallel.
