WHICH IS SOUND.
The President is always talking
about sound money and tho honest
dollar. Hon. Win. C. Whitnoy
also has something to say in relation
to tho same. This leads us to
enquiro what is sound money.
Tho gold dollar is not an honest
dollar; it is not sound money says
tho American. As shown by the
averago prices of commodities
given in tho proceeding editorial
tho gold dollar was worth 80 per
cent moro in 1890-91 than in 1870-78,
and on Juno 1, 1894, this honest
dollar was worth OG per cent
more than in 1873. In 1890-91 tho
silver dollar, as bullion, -was worth
1 por cent moro than in 1870-73,
and on Juno 1, 1891, it was worth,
not in America whoro it is
gold, or in India whoro it
is treated as merchandise, but in
China, exactly as much as in 1873.
At Shanghai on December 31,
1894, tho gold dollar was worth 105
por cent moro than in 1873, would
buy moro than twico as much as it
would twenty jears before. Tho
silver dollar would buy 3 per cent

possiblo indictment against tho

ing their viows, sensible men can
not help concluding that a
system which favors tho corner
ing of redemption monoy must be
vicious in tho oxtromo. Assuming
that tho transaction was all right
and in tho interest of tho Amccican
treasury, which may or may not
bo so, it is at any rate a frightful
indication of tho fact that tho most
powerful government of tho world
aro at tho mercy of tho monoy
power so long as government finances
aro based upon tho restricted
stock of gold which is hold and
controlled by tho great bankers.
There will bo no safety for tho
governments of the western world

TRUSTS ARE DOOMED.
The San Francisco Call regards
tho defeat of tho Whiskey trust in
Illinois as a great victory.
It rejoices to think that after
thirty years of rapid growth theso
commercial monsters reached n
turn in tho road. That is what tho
trusts feared when they heard from
tho Democratic landslide of 1892.
Tho Call says:
In declaring tho whiskey trust
to bo an illegal and banoful institution,
and in ordering thorcforo
that its character bo revoked, tho
Supremo Com t of Illinois has destroyed
ono of tho most corrupt institutions
to which this country
has ever given birth. Tho organization
of tho trust was on tho bas.
is of leasing all tho leading distill
eries and operating them under
ono management. Tho profits
which it has secured under this arrangement
havo been onormousi
but this is a matter of small impor
tance compared with the
ing of courts and legislative bodies
to which it has resorted in tho
maintenance of the gigantic
When tho attack was first made
upon tho trust it sought to evade
tho issues raised against it by re
organizing on a different plan, of
which a comprehensive corporation
was" tho contral idea. Even this
ruso did not suffice to blind tho
Supremo Court to its real intention,
and it has been destroyed on tho
broad ground that it was conducted
in lestraint of trade. There being
no ground upon which it can
appeal to the Supremo Court of the
United States it is dead boyond
Ofcoursothis decision is mado
by tho Supreme Court of only ono
stato, but that is sufficient to de
stroy this malignant institution.
As Illinois is tho homo of other
gigantic trusts, including tho Pullman
Company, this decision
breaks ground for others
that will affect interests as great as
thoso represented by tho whiskey
trust, and will havo a further value
as serving as a precedent for other
All thoso who had becomo disheartened
at the seeming invlnoiblo
power of trusts and corporations
may now tako courago and cherish
a hope for better days. It is impossible
that tho principal rep
resented by trusts can Ihrivo for
ever in this country, and tho sooner
tho issuo is fought out m tho
Stato courts tho better.
A movement is on foot to
solidato tho Northern Pacific
tho Great Northorn Eailroads and
operate them jointly under ono
management, with James J. Hill
of tho Great Northern," as Presi
dent of tho "combine." This aggregation
of capital will exceed by
ilxr ono hundred million of dollars.
It is such combines, monoplies and
trusts that make tho people of the
land feel a deep restlessness under
tho belief that our very government
is largely administered in the
interest principally of the capital

SENATOR VOORHEE'S VIEWS
Silver nnd Gold Torccn llroko Even A
Senator Voorheeso being asked
his opinion of tho result of tho
Democratic convention in Ken-lucky
Tho result of this convention reminds
mo of an expression wo had
when I was a boy in describing
tho wrestling match. When neither
paity got much, if
over tho other, it was called a
"dog fall." At Louisville ono
party nominated tho tickot and
tho other mado tho platform, and
Ihoy came out about oven, with
bimetallism, in tho abstract, on
top. Tho ticket is a splendid one,
with tho gifted and eloquent General
Hardin up for Govornor, a
friend of silver monoy, while tho
platform is simply a reassertion of
the bimetallic Chicago platform of
1892, which is full of silver and
gold both, and was indorsed by
tho American people three years
ago in an overwhelming manner.
This platform did not mean gold
monomotallssm in 1892, and docs
not jnean it now.
The endorsement of Mr. Clevo
land and his administration
said the Senator, "was a most natural
thing in a Democratic convention,
and tho indorsement of
John G. Carlisle anywhoro in Ken
tucky was a foregone comclusion
whether all his viows were concurred
in or not. Thero is nothing
in tho work of tho Louisvillo convention
which calls for or justifies a
spirit of boasting, or of triumph
amongst its members over each
other. The situation invites, and,
indeed commands, harmony and
peace in tho ranks of Democracy,
ana a united and aggressivo light
against tho common enemy. I predict
a galaint campaign and a brilj
liant victory for tho Democratic
cause in Kentucky in tho coming
"I have noithor fear nor discouragement
for tho fato of silver
in tho United States. Tho
American people, in their own way,
and with many a sober second
thought, will tako full and proper
care of that great question. Thero
are over five hundred millions of
silver now in circulation in this
couutry, as much honor as gold,
and thero will never bo less. Dem.
ocrats havo no need to quarrel with
ono anotocr on this or any other
question. Freedom of opinion in
our ranks does not necessarily
mean a free fight."
