WHITELAW REID ON THE FINANCIAL QUESTION letter to the President of the Ohio Republican Editorial Association. Borne Sound Advice to the Voters of the Country. To Carry Out the Ideas of the Silver ites, and Pay the National and Private Debts in Silver, to Nullify and Declare Invalid Any Contract for Paying Gold, is Simple Rob bery. CANTON (O.), Sept. B.—The Re publican Editorial Association of Ohio met in the Elks' Hall at 10:30 o'clock this morning. The venerable John Ilopley of Bucyrus presided. Canton "Was fixed upon for the meeting place of the association, for the reason that it is the home of the Presidential candi date supported by the editors of the as sociation and in order that a formal call might be made upon him. About two thirds of the Republican editors of Ohio were present. When it was announced by Colonel Brown, President of the association, that he had a letter from Whitelaw Reid of the New York "Tribune,'" there was an outburst of cheers. The reader was frequently applauded, and at the clos ing of the reading Hon. J. M. Icks moved a vote of thanks be given Mr. Reid, and it was unanimously carried. The letter was as follows: "Dear Sir: The remembrance of my birthright among you touches me, and I am grateful to Ohio Republican edit ors for it; much more grateful in fact than for your friendly persistency in requiring a letter when you found I could not come to make a speech. My friend, Charles Emory Smith, will do the latter so acceptably you will need neither from me." "We had the four years in clover which our friends, the enemy, promised in "92. People are quite satisfied that they had enough of it On old lines this campaign was already won. Voters w i-e absolutely resolved to go back to tie- point where they turned off four years ago, and get into that path again, which, in 1888 to IMrj. had led them to the greatest, most widely diffused pros- I" rfty this country has ever enjoyed. As an assertion of the power of the common people they put forward as their candidate a man whose very name He-ant to every one of them the policy ot those four prosperous y ars, and the work was practically done. "Then burst out the Adullamites. Every unthinking or unscrupulous man that was In distress, every one that was in debt, every one that was discontent ed, gathered themselves together, not unto David, alas, but to Altgeld. They captured the national convention of an historical party and degraded it, and humiliated the country by asking American people to vote that they could not obey the eighth commandment. No Uj when the question is submitted to a popular vote, the people must infer there are two sides to it, and that they have a right to vote on which ever side their Judgment or interest inclines. But there are not two sides to moral law. No man or party has the right to put th<- eighth commandment to a popular vote; to decide through an expression of popular desires at the polls whether tins nation shall cheat its creditors by paying its debts at the rate of 53 cents on the dollar, and whether every private debtor shall be at liberty to cheat to the same extent the man who has trusted him. To propose such a vote and such a decision is in itself a crime, but hav ing proposed it the people of this coun try will sustain the great command ment by a vote which will surprise those who would break it. 1 hope the Ohio editors will deal with this matter in a straighforward fash ion and call a spade a spade. Many of our oppom nts are as sincere as we. and mean to be honest, but the thing they want is the wickedest and most im moral public act since secession. To pay the national debt fn silver, to pay private debts in silver, to nullify and declare invalid any contract, however honestly entered into, for paying gold and to turn 63 cents' worth of silver into a dollar at our Mints aa often and as long as any silver mine owner at home, or any silver burdened Chinese or Hindoo from Asia chooses to bring it to us—the effect of all this is simple robbery. To ask the intelligent, honest men to vote for it is p. insult therms well as to declare that the people have the right to overrule Mount Sinai at the polls and reverse the moral law if they want to. "Dishonesty never pays. There's a dozen ways of proving It in this case But first, to make the moral nature of the prop .sals clear to the average voter, and there should be no more doubt of the verdict this honest Christian Na tion will give than there Is of to-mor row's sunrise.

You can make free silver men ■cc, from tlie past history of every na tion that ever tried it. that while mak ing more money does inflate prices, it works both ways. It raises prices for what they have to sell, and it is apt to raise the former first and highest. The irrocer raises his figures long before the day laborer can have his wages ad THE RECORD-UNION. SACRAMENTO, WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 9, 1896.—EIGHT PAGES. vanced, and labor never really catches up till the Inevitable crash comes and both tumble together. "Cheap money never did cheapen the necessities of life, but it cheapens men. Look at Mexico, China, India. Silver men can be made to see, too, that mak ing more money does not put more in their pockets. The bullion owner may get a hundred times more silver than is now stamped into dollars, but he will not be any more willing to give the wheat raiser a single one of them with out getting a round 100 cents' worth of wheat for it. An ignorant voter thinks that when more metal is stamped at th-' Mint he can somehow get a dollar for less than what the open market calls a hundred cents in value. The real authors of this movement have other views. What they want is to find some way of paying something with rothing. It is merely the old unlimited greenback fiat money craze in a new form. It had been tried one time or another by nearly every nation, and nearly always led to ruin. It met its fust great defeat with us in the Ohio campaign, led by the Ohio soldier whom that campaign made President. "This time it will be finally crushed under another Ohio soldier, who will become President by the largest popu lar majority of this generation. Ver mont points that way. "Next to an attack on the eighth commandment in enormity is the attack by our opponents on the Constitution and courts of the United States. The protest against the use of the constitu tional power for the suppression of riot; the proposal to pack the Supreme Court; the attempt to destroy the valid ity of contracts —these are not mere demagogism or even Intelligent com munism. They are formal naturaliza tion Into the United States of Russian anarchy. Little better is demanded than that every thrifty, economical, prosperous citizen shall be discrimin ated against and taxed, not merely once, like other people, but twice, first on what he has, then on what he earns. Let us be as considerate as you please of our erring countrymen who have been honestly misled; but let us indulge in on disguise as to the unpatriotic, un american, revolutionary character of this whole programme. "There have been ill-considered ap peals to Republicans to keep our dis tinctive principles out of sight in view of the national danger from the mon strous proposals. But we cannot, if we would. The Government is without rev enue for its current expenses. It must raise more if it would not go into bank ruptcy. Our way of raising it is by tariff; there is no other except by taxa tion or by more borrowing. Would the men who beg us to let the tariff alone favor either? And yet the tariff they are afraid we may touch is the very tariff Cleveland considered so discred itable that he did not sign it. We cannot seek the suffrages of the American peo ple under disguises. Patriotic Demo crats who rise above party in this na tional peril, as they did in 1861, ought not to ask us to lower our flag on the eve of battle because they are going to bring us some reinforcemnets. They could not respect us if we did, and, what is more, thousands of voters we now have would desert us. "Forgive these crude hints about our editorial work in this campaign. You know I should not have ventured upon them except at your renewed request, and that I certainly should not address them to you. who need them so little. The campaign you are already making gives assurance of the happy result. Yet neither the editors nor the great ora tors of the party are making this cam paign. The plain people are thinking It out for themselves. Even the best speeches are not those made on the stump. They are coming from the porch of the little, two-story wooden cottage in Canton; and they make us as proud, in this crisis, of our leader as we are of our cause." The President of the Editorial Asso ciation was instructed to inform Mr. Keid by telegraph at his camp in the Adirondacks that a vote of thanks had been given him. The afternoon session was given over to the address of Charles Emory Smith. There was a large audience assembled in the hall. Mr. Smith was warmly greeted. He said in part: " When Jefferson said that he would rather have newspapers without a gov ernment than a government without newspapers, he indicated the vital part which newspapers play under free insti tutions. That was one hundred years : go. One hundred years ago newspa pers were sentinels at the outposts. To day they hold the central position; they are the very life blood of free discussion. This is pre-eminently a campaign of ed ucation, it is thus peculiarly our cam paign. The journalists are the real ed ucators. It is true there are great text books from the masters. There is a new Adam Smith's 'Wealth of Nations' with American application, a new Bunyan's 'Pilgrim's Progress' through the slough Of despond Of Democracy and up the hill of difficulty, a new Baxter's 'Saint's Rest' under assured Republican restor ation. The other titles of these master pU i• ■ are William McKinley's complete politics] economy of *Open mills for full labor rather than open mints for free ■liver*; Benjamin Harrison's 'Satirical reflections on the absurdities of a boy orator's idea of Independence of the law of gravitation', and Thomas R. Reed's Old Orchard 'Plums of political philoso phy.' Rue the old text books are ex pounded by the professors in the class room, and so the new text books are .i -ited with notes and index and daily elu cidations by the schoolmasters of jour nalism. "We must first educate ourselves. We are already grounded In right principles. But we want more earnestness, more moral courage, a higher sense of respon sibility, a true appre. iation of the ardu ous duty of this crisis. We want more real and lasting enthusiasm—a deeper and grander consecration to the high mission which is before us. We must educate the people in elemental prin ciples. We must educate them to under stand that we cannot have two stand ards of value any more than two stand aids of weight or length. "Our existing standard of value is the hundred-cent gold dollar; free coinage of silver would make our standard the fifty-ceni dollar, and that is the reason that it is a crime of repudiation. We must educate the people that Govern ment fiat cannot make money. The Gov ernment stamp weighs and certifies, but does not create. Money is of two kinds, real money and representative money. Real money has intrinsic value equal to Its face. Representative money is a promise to pay in real money. Gold coin Is real money, because it worth 100 cents on the dollar, stamped or melted. Its value is not In the stamp. The present silver dollar is partly real and partly repre sentative. It has f>2 cents worth of value and 4S cents worth of faith—faith that the Government will fulfill its pledge of keeping it at parity with gold. The proposed silver dollar under free coin age would be neither real nor represen tative. It could not say even with the paper dollar: 'I know that my re deemer liveth,' for there would be no re demption, and without redemption its yaius would sink to its bullion value of 52 cents. W r e want neither cheap dol lars nor cheap men, nor cheap Presi dents. "We must educate the people that po litical independence is one thing and in dependence of the laws of trade and nature is another. The most puerile and grotesque idea, even of the boy orator, is his pet notion that because the coun try declared political independence of Europe in 1770 it ought to declare an independent monetary standard in 1890. He seems to think that we ought to have a distinct American measure of value, because we have a distinct American measure of liberty. We can have Amer ican geography, because our rivers and mountains and glorious fields with their rich harvests are our own, but we can not have an American arithmetic, be cause two and two do not make five and fifty does not make 100 in the United States any more than in Europe. We can have an American political economy, because political economy is partly a matter of conditions, and our conditions are different from those of Europe; but we cannot have an Ameri can algebra, because algebra is not an experimental but an exact science. In algebra x represents the unknown quantity, and thus it represents Bryan after the election, and not even an x-ray will be able to disclose his scattered, his shadowy remains. "This talk of an independent measure shows a callow and shallow mind. Do we not want commercial relations with Europe? Do we not want to extend our trade? Then why do we not want a common medium of exchange? Above all and beyond all, we must educate the people that national honesty and indi vidual honesty are the best policy. Na tions and individuals cannot close out with the world on one transaction and quit. They must keep the account, and for every act of fraud they will pay dou ble the next time. "We are against the outflow of good circulation and the inflow of bad citizen ship. We find communism, revolution and anarchy no more attractive and no less dangerous when urged by the rhe toric of Bryan than when enforced by the bomb of Altgeld or the pitchfork of Tillman. We must teach the unceasing lesson of patriotism and rectitude, and must educate the people to maintain na tional honor as sacredly as they main tained the national life, and to be no more ready in 1886 to cut in two the stan dard of value which is the basis and measure of all business security than they were in 18(>1 to cut in two the Union, which Is the basis and measure of our national greatness and glory. "We are met at the home of the great patriot and statesman, the boy soldier and the man orator and leader, who by an unerring choice is fitly made the standard-bearer in this second mighty battle for national safety and welfare. Let us go from his enkindling presence and his glowing words with fresh in spiration and renewed strength for the campaign of education." Mr. Smith's address was well received. He was frequently interrupted by ap plause and cheering. At the conclusion nf the address the editors adjourned for the purpose of calling op Major McKiniey. Fusion in Missouri. ST. LOUIS, Sept. B.—The Democratic State Committee met here to-day and fixed a basis for fusion with the Popu lists on the Electoral ticket. It was decided to withdraw three district Electors and one Elector at large. The vacancies will be filled by Populists. A Matabele Chief Shot. BULUWAYO, Sept. B.—The British troops yesterday captured Makoni, an Important Matabele chief, who had taken a prominent part in the native re volt. He was tried by court-martial and sentenced to be shot, which sen tence was carried into effect to-day. SHOCK ING DOUBLES TRAGED Y. TERRIBLE DEED OF AN INSANE COACHHAN. Murders a Man Who Was Visiting His Employer and Then Takes His Own Life. ALLENDALE (N. J.), Sept. S.—A shocking double tragedy aroused great excitement here to-day. Isaac Caryle of New York city, while a'guest at the country residence of the family of the late Civil Justice Wandell, was shot down in cold blood by William Doling, who had been a coachman In the ser vice of the family for nineteen years. After murdering Caryle the coachman attempted to kin Frank Wandeu, and failing in this, turned the weapon upon himself and sent a bullet through his own heart. Not the slightest motive can be as cribed for the terrible crime. * The coachman and Mr. Caryle had been the best of friends as far as known. The Wandells and the Caryles have been on intimate terms for many years. The Wandells are very wealthy, own ing much property in the vicinity of Eighty-third street and Lexington ave nue. New York. The family consists of mother, two sons and two grown daughters. They live in a palatial hous* in Eighty-third street, near Lex ington avenue, and their country seat here has been the scene of many social events. The Caryle family consisted of Isaac R. Caryle. the father, his wife and two SOUS. Caryle is a retired real estate dealer, and the murdered man, who was 38 years old, was his youngest son. Caryle had just arrived, and while walking through the grounds with Frank Wandell met the coachman, who in return for a pleasant greeting, dis charged the contents of a shotgun at him. killing him instantly. Wandell fled before the coachman could reload and the latter then turned the gun on himself. No suspicious ac tions had been detected on the part of the coachman, but it is thought that he became suddenly insane, and seeing Caryle, who was supposed to be one of his best friends, he determined to kill him. OHIO EDITORS CALL ON MAJOR M'KINLEY. Cordially Welcomed at the Home of the Republican Presidential Nominee. Highly Praised for Good Work in Behalf of the Party. To be a Real, Capable and Worthy Journalist is to Attain the Highest Plane of Human Opportunity and Usefulness—To Mold and Correct Public Opinion Surely the Noblest of Professions. CANTON, Sept. S.-The members of the Ohio Republican Editors' Associa tion, which met here to-day, this after noon went in a body to Major McKin ley's house. Upon their arrival there the editors formed themselves into groups about the porch. John Hopley was spokesman. He spoke at some length on the political issues of the day. Major McKiniey was roundly ap plauded when he stepped forward to speak. He said: "Mr. President and gentlemen of the Republican Press Association of Ohio: I have been deeply moved by the gra cious words of your venerable spokes man. You could not have chosen one of your membership to give the expres sion to the sentiments of your associa tion more pleasing to me than my old friend and honored friend, Mr. Hopley, whose efforts in behalf of the Republi can party have been unceasing for more than forty years. (Applause.) "It gives me great pleasure, gentle men, to welcome you, one and all, to my home. Canton just now, I judge, is a very fair newspaper town, and no newspaper writer or publisher ever comes here who is not warmiy wel comed, whether he gets what he comes for or not, and no matter what he may say when he goes away. (Laughter and applause.) "I feel that I know something of the Republican editors of Ohio. I cannot recall a time that they have not been faithful and friendly; nor can I forget that in some of the closest campaigns in the State their intelligent and unfalter ing support has brought victory. This year they are more earnest, more ag gressive, more thorough and more ef ficient than they have even been before. They appreciate the overmastering im portance of the issues involved in the present contest, and are leading, glori ously leading, in the educational work which is indespensible to a proper understanding of the questions which divide us and right action ultimately at the polls. "Gentlemen, it is a post of singular honor which you occupy to-day. I can not remember any period, save and ex cept the war, when the Republican press so signally represented national honor and national welfare as now. (Great applause.) It is not often given to a political party, as it is this year given to ours, to stand by- national honor, public faith and order. It is the good fortune of the Republican party to stand in this contest for what is best in Government; for what is patriotic in citizenship; for what tends to the sup port of the financial integrity of the Government, its credit and currency. It is a valuable responsibility to put upon any party, but the Republican party is not without trial amidst grave responsibilities. It has performed su preme duty before. It has met great trusts before. It has discharged them, too, with wisdom, courage and fidelity, and it will meet the new ones with an honest and unfaltering purpose to serve the best interests of the people and all the people. (Applause.) "Fortunately, in this contest the Re publican party is not alone in its sup port of the Republican cause. Con servative men of all parties stand with it. It numbers among its strongest al lies many connected with Democratic papers. East and West, which are doing yeoman service for patriotism and na tional honor. They are welcome, thrice welcome, and the country owes them a debt of gratitude for their unflinching loyalty as against party, for sound money and public morals. (Great ap plause.) "This is a year, gentlemen, of political contention without bitterness. Intelli gence and investigation are taking the place of passion and partyism. Party prejudice cuts little figure in a crisis like this. We must not indulge in aspersion or crimination against those who may have differed from us in the past, but who are now with us in patriotic effort to preserve the good faith of the coun try and enforce public and private honesty. (Applause.) We must not drive anybody out of camp, but wel come everybody in. Our people have always extended to the press the most generous patronage, and accorded it the greatest deference, so that the press has grown with our growth and ad vanced with our advancement. "There are nearly as many newspa pers and periodicals published in the l'nited States as in all the rest of the world beside. To me the modern news paper is so vast and comprehensive that I can never contemplate its possibili ties without becoming both interested and enthusiastic on the subject. Why, to be a real, capable and worthy jour nalist, wise, honest and efficient, is to attain the highest plane of human op portunity and usefulness. To love and proclaim truth for truth's sake; to dis seminate knowledge and useful infor mation; to correct misimpressions; to enlighten the misinformed; to 'feed an expectant and anxious people' with the occurrences of the world daily—indeed, almost hourly; to discover and correct abuses; to fairly and honorably advo cate a great cause; in short, to mold and correct public opinion, which Is always the mission of journalism, is surely the noblest of professions. (Applause.) "Poor it may be in some parts of the world, despised it may be by the intol erant and ignorant everywhere, but de graded it never can be so long as its aim is for the good of the people. Ohio has always been prominent in the field of journalism. That she has been some prominent in politics the press can, fairly claim a share; and it is entitled to no little credit for a long line of de serving public servants. I need not re mind you of them. "*I congratulate you upon the high rank of the newspaper press in Ohio, and wish for you still higher achieve ments in your chosen work in broader fields. You never had an opportunity for higher usefulness than now. and you never had a better opportunity for the use of your best faculties than in the support of the principle and policy which are involved in the contest now upon us. "I congratulate you upon the great work you are doing, and appreciate it more than I can tell you the kindness and courtesy of this call." (Applause.) After shaking hands with the Major the editors departed. Major McKinley's engagements are multiplying so rapidly that he has de cided not to go to Zoar this week, but will devote the next two days to the preparation of the speeches which he is to make on Friday and Saturday. Charles Emory Smith dined with Ma jor McKiniey to-night, and will leave in the morning for Erie, Pa., where he is to address the league clubs. He hopes to return to Ohio later in the campaign to make a number of speeches. Mr. Smith, who has just returned from a speaking tour in Maine, says the Republicans will carry that State by a phenomenal majority. SENATOR CARTER. Although for Free Silver, He Will Support McKiniey. HELENA (Mont.), . Sept. B.—Senator Carter's statement regarding the course of conduct he pursued as a delegate to the St. Louis convention is published to-day in the form of an open letter to the members of the Republican State Convention of Montana which the Sen ator says he will be unable to attend. He says that he was dissatisfied with the action of the St. Louis convention on the money question, and adds: "I do not believe in free coinage cou pled with free trade, and I do not be lieve that both can be successfully es tablished and maintained by our Gov ernment. The free trade policy will render the establishment of bimetallism an utter impossiblity. After looking the whole situation over, it will be found that the Republican party has not de clared in favor of the gold standard, but in favor of the restoration of silver." Mr. Carter regards the Republican declaration as too conservative, but as between its acceptance and that of the Chicago platform, "with its free trade, States' rights, free riot and other ob jectionable features," the Senator finds no room to hesitate, and urges on the Montana convention the placing of Mc- Kiniey electors in the field as its duty. He denies the right of the delegates to nominate Bryan electors, and advises the Silver Republicans who support Bryan to keep their hands off the con vention, while asking the "broadest possible charity" for them at the bands of the delegates. In the future, as in the past, the Sen ator says he will stand for protection and free coinage, and will give McKin iey his support because he thinks the best interests of the State and country will be si-Kserved by Republican vic tory. He advises the State convention to declare for free coinage in its plat form and indorse the return of the bolt ing Republicans "in due season." Serious Elevator Accident. ST. LOUIS, Sept. B.—The freight ele vator in the wholesale dry goods house of the Hargedine-McKittrick Company, on Washington avenue, with eight em ployes and three customers of the house on board, fell from the seventh floor to the basement to-day. No one was killed. though all were painfully bruised. EASTERN TURF EVENTS. OPENING OF THE FALL MEETING AT ST. JOSEPH.

GOERLITZ DESERTED BY THE ROYAL GUESTS. The Emperor Goes to Radineritz to Wit ness the Military Maneuvers. Czar and Czarina of Russia on Their Way to Denmark. The nalignancy of Yellow Fever In creasing in Cuba, and the Disease in a Most Dreadful Type Playing Havoc With Lnacclimated Spanish Troops. RERUN, Sept. B.—The Emperor and the royal guests left Goerlitz at 7:30 o'clock this morning. The party were driven to Radineritz, north of L-ohau. where they mounted horses, and the Emperor, with Lord Beresford on one side of him and Lord Lonsdale on the other, witnessed the military maneu vers and mock battle from the Kittlitz Hight.s. The first coming together Of the opposing armies was the advance of Saxon cavalry division, which was brought to a standstill at noon by the Prussian cavalry, supported by the Fifth Army Corps under General Count Waldersee, whose headquarters were located at Weisdenburg. The Emperor, in toasting the Sixth Army Corps at a banquet at Goerlitz last evening, referred to the Czar's de lire that troops be used only for the purpose- of preserving peace. "In this," the Emperor said, "the Czar is in com plete accord with me. His majesty's efforts are directed toward drawing to gether the peoples of Europe and unit ing them upon the grounds of common interest." CZAR AXD CZARINA. KIEL. Sept. B.—The Czar and Czarina arrived here to-day. Their majesties were received at the station by Prince Henry of Prussia and his wife. Princes ; Irene. The Imperial visitors entered carriages and were driven to the Jen sen Bridge, where they embark. on board a steam launch, and were con veyed to the Schloss. The Czar and Czarina were enthusias tically cheered by the people. The Ger man fleet in the harbor was covered wii h bunting, and each vessel flew the Rus sian flag from the main top in their honor. The Polar Star, the Russian Imperial yacht, was in the harbor awaiting their coming, and at 7 o'clock this evening their majesties and their suites went on board of her and she shortly afterward started for Denmark. Prince Henry and Princess Irene wenl to the wharf with, their majesties, and there bade them farewell. As the Im perial couple boarded the Polar Star the warships in the harbor fired salutes and their crews cheered them. TROUBLE IN KENTUCKY. Threats of Burning the Town of Springfield. SPRINGFIELD (Ky.). Sept. B.—The demand for free turnpikes in Wash ington County has developed a mob which may have to be quelled by State troops. Yesterday the Sheriff went out in the country to arrest the men who shot Tollgate Keeper Wells Saturday night and riddled his house with bul lets. The men, who numbered over fifty, defied the authorities, and threat ened to burn the town of Sprinfield if an attempt was made to arrest them. Yesterday at dusk the Sheriff arrested Joe Sette, a member of the mob, and brought him into jail at midnight. In the meantime, however, the man.* friends got wind of the affair, and moved on Springfield, apparently to put the threat to bum the town into exe cution. The arrest occurred at ti o'clock and at 8 o'clock the large to bacco warehoust of P. W. McLaughlin, within a square of the Courthouse, waa in flames. The people remembering the threat, thought it was being executed, and in a few minutes the streets were alive with men armed to the teeth and determined to drive the incendiaries away if they attempted any further outrage. To-day business was prac tically suspended, and every man is armed. The names of some fifty or sixty participants in the outrages are known, and Sheriff Craycroft has or ganized a posse to capture them. PEOPLE'S PARTY. Appeal for Funds to Carry on the Campaign. WASHINGTON. Sept. B.—An address to the people was issued to-day from the Populist headquarters. It declares the People's party is the champion of the masses who labor and produce all the wealth. It is pointed out that the Peo ple's party forced the Demorcatic party to turn down the Cleveland administra tion, and adopt the principles of the People's party, and as the action of the Democratic party in the future is uncer tain, all citizens who believe in a gov ernment as administered by Jefferson, Jackson and Lincoln are urged to up build and strengthen the People's party. The address closes with an appeal for a contribution of one dollar to the cam paign fund from every individual able and willing to contribute. It declares the People's party will not accept con tributions from monopolists, as the party which accepts funds from mo nopolists and trusts' mortgages itself to them and must do their bidding. A Failure at Philadelphia. PHILADELPHIA. Sept.
