Division of Sentiment Among
AND DEMOCRATS CANNOT AGREE.
Tho Money Question "Will Not Dotrn."
President McKinley Criticised Por Try?
ing to Satisfy tho Blmctallists ? The
Democratic Puotions In tho House,
washington, April 1?.? [Special.]?
Thero Is a great division of sentiment
among prominent Republicans hero as to
the wisdom of the president's appointment
of a commission to go abroad to sco what
can be dono in the matter of international
bimetallism. First it is important to know
t ho view of tho administration in adopting
this policy. I learn upon excellent author?
ity that tho president is not really hopeful
that anything can bo done, but ho dooms
it his duty to put forth an effort. Not
only did tho St. Louis platform promise
that this should bo dono, but tho presi?
dent recognizes the fact that millions of
American citizens believe in free silver
with or without international co-operation.
Ho wants to convlneo this groat class of
tho people that he is not tho enemy of any
progress that win bo mndo along whole
Boiiio lines. If tho other nations are in
such position that they can co-operate with
us cither to adopt the double standard or to
increase the use of silver, nothing can be
hist by giving them n chance to join us.
Two Political Elements.
Among prominent Republicans one view
is that the president is quite right in thus
attempting to satisfy the great middle
class of the silver men of tho country.
They say In- by this action appeals to the
sense of fairness of all but tho radical sil?
ver followers, and that such men must be
forced to admit he is reasonable and friend?
ly, and that it Is tho fault of world condi?
tions, and not his fault, if nothing more
tangible can be accomplished. All the
true bimctallists of tin' Republican party
in congress adopt this viow oftho matter.
Another element, the gold standard Rc
publicans, think the president has made,-,
mistake. They say the country last year
for tho first time learned tho great philo?
sophic truth that a double standard is an
impossibility. They pay tho ndvanco which
the country made in intelligent discrimi?
nation between truth ami fallacy during
last year's campaign was a phenomenal
thing in the history of a people For year.-;
there had liccn ko much talk of bimetal?
lism, either national or international, that
a great majority of the people bail begun
to look upon it not only as practical, but
desirable. When they wcto forced to think
about it by the trend of the campaign of
181)11, they discovered, or ninny of them
did, that any scheme! for a double standard
' rests upon a false basis. Now, by appoint?
ing this commission, it is argued by ibis
wing, tho president lias to a (treat extent
undone what was achieved liy tho cam?
paign. He has furnished a new argument
In favor of the practicability of a double
standard. Ho has placed in the hands of
those who believe in it another weapon.
They can now say again, as they said dur?
ing tho campaign, that if it is a desirable
thing for a number of nations whv not a
desirable- tmng tor one great nfitlonr Why
wait till tho co-operation of foreign pow?
ers is obtained?
Signs From Afar.
The nluorlty with which tho new admin?
istration hns taken this step, in only a lit
tlo limm t ban a month after tho inaugura?
tion, has tended to convince many observ?
ers that sincerity is not in those Republic?
ans who say the financial question was
settled by tho campaign of last year. It
has been n favorite theory with many op?
timistic members of that party that the
silver business, as they coll it, has played
out; that tho battlo of tho standards was
fought ton dccislvo und llnnl i ;suo lust
fall, and that tho country will not again
have to go through a sllvor cniniNtign, Hut
the nioro level headed and conservative
Republicans confess this is not true. They
see tho signs of tho next battlo from afar.
They realize that 1800 was but tho precursor
of 1000, and that silver versus gohl is like?
ly to bo the issue again. Granting that
this is so, the Republicans uro still divided
in their opinion as to tho wisdom of the
president's commission. Some say the
best way to get away from tho silver agi?
tation in to try to satisfy tho more inoder
ato silver men that tho administration is
not unfriendly to them, while others say
tho wholo matter should be ignored ns
much ns possible on tho theory that In
time the people will forget about It.
Really there is qulto a chaotic condition
of parties hero at this time, und in reflect?
ing these various opinions in the Repub?
lican ranks as I find them in Washington
I am only trying to show you what forces
are tit work. Wo are In a formative period,
and it may take a year or two to winnow
out a distinct policy. Tho Democrats are
in a similar situation. They cannot agree
any better than the. Republicans, oven if
ns woll. In addition to tho old division of
that party between gold Democrats and
silver Democrats wo see them now divided
as to whether tho party should go on with
silver us its bnttlccry or whether it should
return to the methods of some years ago
and make the principal issue on the turitT
question. Many Democrats who were ear?
nestly for silver last year now think the
tariff t he real issue and the one upon which
the party has by far tho best chance to win.
Democrats In the House.
The Democrats uro further divided as to
their policy in tho house of representatives.
One faction, led by Mr. Bailey of Texas,
has taken the position that if tho Repub?
licans under the leadership of Mr. Reed do
not wish to organize the house and proceed
to legislation thu Democrats should not
try to force them to do so by demanding
the appointment of committees. Mr. Bniloy
puts the case very tersely for Ids side when
he says the Republicans aro responsible to
tho country for what is done and for what
Is not done. The duty of the Democrats
Is to let them do as they pleaso and take
the consequences. If tho Democrats prod
the Republicans into action, or attempt to
goad them into it. by making points under
tho rules, they must to some extent share
responsibility with tho majority. Mr.
Ralloy, therefore, and a majority of the
Democrats believe in holding hands off
and permitting the Republicans to have a
clear rein, confident t hey will drive to their
Mr. McMillin and many other Demo?
crats believe they aro sent hero to light the
Republican majority and to stand for their
rights as representatives. They would
force the fighting, embarrass tho majority
as rauch as possible, stir up trouble among
the onomynnd trust to mistakes of the lat?
ter for good results.
