wanting au explanation from the Com

the proceedings of »lie Commissioners he
will see there is a resolution directing
Mr. Dore to have the records of his

out of the salary fund, which he has
dene. Mr. Croal did the work it cost
the county cents a folio, which is one
half of the legal rates. If Mr. Lowthian
had taken the trouble to find out the
facts of the case before rushing into

'flie Harvest.
Many of the fields of grain in this lo
cality are ready for the binder, and
some of the farmers havs been at work
since Monday. Tho grain has ripened
very rapidly the past week, and next
week the harvest work will be general
throughout this portion of the country.
A splendid crop of grain is to be seen al
most every where,but during the past week
many of these have been discovered to
be affected by an insect similar to the
Hessian lly, if it is not that pest. The
stalk of the grain was noticed to give
way, letting the heads ill to the ground,
and upon examination the cause was
found to be an insect ot the general ap
pear anco of a flax seed, which was lodged
at the second or third joint of the stalk,
and which had been eating the straw
from the inside. Just how much dam
age the grain lias suilered from this new
found pest it, would be hard to estimate,
hut little damage can be seem in some
fields, while in other places there are
i Kirtions where it is said that fully onehal
of the grain is down. The crop lias had
splendid weather for tilling and ripening
properly, and it is hoped that the ap
pearence of this new evil will not be
widespread, although it has already
caused considerable loss in individual
cases.

Tnese are the words in which Mr
Blaine denouLced the proposition io er
rich the mine owners at the expense
the general public:
"At current rates for silver, the fro
coinage of dollars containing 41"^1
grains, wordi in gold about
(.J2

gives an illegitimate pro
tit to the owm
of tho bullion, enabling him to take I
cents of it to the mint and get it stamp*--!
in coin and force his neighbor to lake
for a full dollar. This is an unfair
advantage which the government has r.'*
right to give to the owner of the silver
bullion and which defrauds the man wh
is forced to take the dollar. Unless v.»
expect the invariable expeiience of other
nations to be in some mysterious wry
suspended for our patticular benefit,
will inevitably lose gold coin it wi I
flow out from us with the certainty and
force of he tides."
Mr. Blaine was in favor of theremone.
tization of silver, lie was a bimetallic',
but he proposed that the silver dollar
should contain a dollar's worth of silver,
and said:
"If I were to venture upon a dictum
of the silver question, I should decbm
that until European remonetizes silv:
we cannot a

as 412U grains." The dollar was at that
timewoitb 02 cents. It we could
afford to coin 02-cent doilars in "18 he
fore the stock of silver in Ibe world href
increased so enormously as it has sini»,
how can we afford to coin a Gl'-cent dol
lar today V
Mr. Blaine saw, too, just where th"
burden of the depreciated coin would
rest finally, and with its heaviest weigh.
He said:
"if paid in a good silver dollar 1h
bondholder
with the friends
of the young couple tendor cougratu
lations and wish them every happiness.
There are a great many populists who
have been sincere, however mistaken
they tuny have been, in the hope that
the populist party was to purify politics
and be a source o" help to good govern
ment. What can these men think of
the betrayal of the party into the hands
of the democracy. No amount of free
silver talk can blind them to the fact
that their party has been swallowed up
by one of the old parties, which popu
lists have always been loud In denounc
ing as corrupt and beyond hope of re
form. Their leaders now tell them they
must vote for a man belonging to this
parly who refuses to stand upon tho
platform of populism. Any populist
can at once see that the endorsement of
IIMS
rt
nothing to complain ol.
If paid in an inferior dollar he litis tho
SHMie gi ievaneos which will be utlend
still more plaintively by the holders .?

bank bill, by the pensioner, by the day
laborer, and y the countless hosts
the poor whom we have with us alwnjs,
and on whom the most distressing ef'e'
of inferior money will ultimately be pre
cipitated."
Referring to the trade dollar of 420
grains, which was coined at that tira»
for the Oriental trade. Mr. aine said
"This dollar contains TV. grains inr.ro
silver than the famous 'dollar of our
fathers.' We have felt compelled to in
crease the weight nf the dollar with
which to oarry on trade with the heath
en nations ot Asia. Shall we dn less

Shall we not do better with those of *ir

Charity the American laborer scorns to
ask. but. in his name, I ask that tho
American congress shall not, force upon
the American laborer a dollar which the
naked and famishing laborers of Imlin
and China refuse to accept."
We hope the renders of the Journal
will read Mr. Blaine's speech and see
how shamefully lie ha« been misrerre
I sented by th^ bolting RepubMrans wh*
I seek to poreeti themselves bv hoMiptr i:p
