of the Navy Herbert, vho is thoroughly
familiar with the Populist movement
In tho South, said be thought the
Populists were not making nuy pro
gress in that country nnd tho teach
lugs of those engaged in the agitation
do not have any Influence in shaping
tho polioy of the Democratic party.
In speaking of sliver tho secretary
said: "I thjnk tho stoppage of the
free colnag of silver in India the
greatest blow given to the Sherman
law and tho free coinage of silver In
this country. The freo coinage of
silver in India bos been poiuted to us
an object lesson by tbe advocates of
free coinage in this country,"
Secretary Carlisle received numerous
callers, among whom wero many mem
bers of congress. With all these the
silver question formed tho prlnclpul
toplo of conversation, and the continued
decline in the price of silver wusnatur
ally referred to. The secretary hud re
ceived a cablegram stating tho prlco of
silver In London was 08 cuuts per
tounco,.at which rato a sliver dollar as
bullion was worth 63 cents. Novortue
ioaa tha point; of couroo, wna.tunt tho
apparent purchasing power of the sliver
dollar, with silver bullion ut 08 cents
per ounce, was as great as whon silver
was worth $1.22 per ounco and tho bull
ion value of silver 93 cents. This fuct
was several times emphasized at the
lost session of congress when ex-Sccre-t&ry

Ex-Prealdent Harrison is in the city

for the shrinkage of the price of silver
since the passago of tho Sherman law
Raid he preferred not to discuss that
subject; but everybody knows, ho said,
that the Sherman law was ouly an ox-

to something worse. Tbo ox-presldont
