Miss Carter is a talented elocutionist
nnd has rare talent ns nn impersona

Whitney On the International
WHY HEWILLG0T0 CHICAGO.
Declares He Is Not a Presidential
New York, June 22. William C.
Whitney made a public statement In
which lie defines the political situa
tion, tunkes his position clear as re
gards his decision to remain In tills
aountry, Instead of going to Europe,
and concludes by saying that he Is
not a presidential possibility, that lie
"would not run if nominated, and
would not servo If elected." The main
part of the statement Is as follews:
"The great question to my mind is
whether the party meets In conven
tion now, ns in 18G0, with Issues and
differences that nrc for the movement
Irreconcilable. For the past fifteen
years, leaders of the public opinion, in
the South and West, have been advo
cating, as tho great remedy for exist
ing ills, the frco coinage of silver at
10 to 1, with or without the co-operation
of oilier nations. Tills has come
to bo believed In by theso persons
quite generally nnd conscientiously.
A large majority of tho delegates to
the coming Democratic convention
have been elected by tho pcoplo for
tho purpose of Incorporating thnt
doctrine into the platform of tho
"This movement for free coinage
purports to have rfor-.4Ls, object- the
establishment and maintenance of
gold and silver ns tho money of the
country upon equal terms with each
other and at n parity of purchasing
power. If, by tho proposed measure,
that object could bo secured, thcro
would bo no substantial disagreement
In tho party.
"Every nntlonnl Democratic plat
form that has heretofore spoken upon
tho subject has declared for both gold
and silver money. It is our tradi
tional policy. Dut tile maintenance
of tho double standard at the present
time is not n question of desire; it is
a question of ability. Tho commer
cial valuo of silver has declined
greatly in the markets of tho world.
Whatovcr the causes arc, and whoever
is to blame, tho fact Is that silver has
declined and tho freo coinage now at
10 to 1 is the same as our offering for
all the silver in tho world about twlco
what It Is selling for In the market.
If the exchanges havo to bo paid In
gold, and It would bo plain that if we,
under theso conditions, open our
mints to freo coinage of silver and
gold at a ratio of comparative value,
which is largely at variance with the
commercial value of tho two metals
we must tako tho entire silver surplus
ourselves, maintain Its parity with
gold or else wo shall go to a silver
"This movement, purporting to be
in the interest of tho Joint standard,
wmcsatn most opportune time In
my opinion. Thero has never been a
time when the prospects of Inter
national action favorable to the Joint
standard were at all as promising at
at the present moment. Dut nn Ill
advised, unsuccessful attempt hero
would discredit tho world over.
From tho discussion of tho last 20
years, It lias come to pass that among
the persons In Europe who are tho
recognized scientists of the monetary
and economic questions, eyery one Is
at the present moment advocating
the advisability of a Joint standard as I
a solution of the monetary difficulty
of the world. This Includes every '

At thp present moment, Germany,

"It is not a question what wo wish,
but what wo aro able to do, as a st long
man may undertake a task too great
for his strength, and breakdown.
"Personally, It Is my opinion If the
Democratic party goes on that plat
form nt this time, It will meet the
most disastrous defeat that any party
has over had In this country. I un
derstand it is honestly believed In
nnd pcoplo think ltlwlll bring relief
In tlielr present troubles; but between
now and election jjday, It will bo
pretty thoroughly ? sifted, nnd tho
people of tho country will not faco
tho disturbance of values, the loss of
coiilldcnce, the general distress and
ruin which would come to their
business interests with such n change.
It will overwhelm the persons who
undertake It. "
"It ought not to be necessary for me
to say anything of aj personal nature.
I find myself, h'dwevor, spoken of hero
nnd there as a possible candidate.
Not very seriously or prominently,
but sufficiently to attract attention.
I have no personal motive in entering
this light. I havo said I would not
bo a candidate. I will add, copying
tho emphatic language used by Gen
eral Sherman. 'I will not run If
nominated, nor servo lf-elcctcd.' I
am not foolish enough to suppose
that any eastern man could be
nominated by tills convention
much less thnt I could. I sympathize
with tho feeling In the south, that
has caused the uprising, and will find
its expression at Chicago, but as to
the principles which the uprising hns
brought forth, and the lssuo being
framed, I entirely disagree
