Mr. Wheeler says he is one of the the farmers of the county who be lieves in the free coinage of silver and gold at the legal ratio of 16 to 1 and willing to meet any man in its de fense if he (the other man) will draw out the crowd to hear him (Wheeler probably), only insisting that he ( Wheeler) have seven or eight days' notiee (of the crowd?). Well, it would be a credulous crowd (of strangers) who would wait that long to hear Mr. Wheeler but 1 agree with him that the other man would have to do the drawing. It is well known that when he begins a speech there is no "rush for the door" from the outside. For example, those silver meetings he ad vertised all over the country a few months since, and that too, while clothed with authority as county vice president "in the great cause of hu manity and justice," sacrificing his interests as a "farmer" because it was his "sacred and imperative duty" to enlighten his benighted neighbors. . Mr. Wheeler may not be "afraid to meet lawvers and doctors (without due bills) but no one would suspect it from the way he "dodged" myself a farmer. His cowardice in that dodg ing is yet exceeded by the meanness of his excuse for it. Pardon my egotism, but it is well known that can draw a bigger crowd and hold it- longer than any that ever suffered un der the excruciatingly funny wit of Mr. W.. because, perhaps. I am a more entertaining and instructive sneakiniz which is saving little. Mr. W. missed the opportunity of his life as it is certain that he alone will never "draw out" such another crowd The speaker who can "get a shot at the politician," Wheeler, will have to be good on the wing and bag his game in the underbrush. His solicitude for his reputation among the outside readers of the World is really touch- i ng and prudence admonishes him to Keep up appearances away irom nome -lest people get a poor opinion of his oratorical courage and destroy his hopes for the legislature or congress, Thomas Tarpy.

The Populist of Trego county met at the court house last Saturday af ternoon for the purpose of placing in nomination the various candidates for county offices. The convention reminded one of a second-hand slaugh ter auction sale as the nominees (with one exception) are second class men and unfit for the positions to which they aspire. E. I). AVheeler called the conven tion to order. AV. C. Olson was elect ed chairman, and 1. G. Balcom, sec retary. xhe usual committees wereannoint- ed and the reports adopted. lietore proceeding to business Ben C. Rich made a motion that the chair appoint a committee of three and that the chair be made the chairman of the committee to confer with the Democrats. The motion was adonted. The chair appointed Ben. C. Rich and Joshua Musgrave as the committee. Ihe convention took a recess. Dur ing the recess S. L. Shorthill distrib uted tree silver tracts to his brethren, and, E. D. Wheeler read an essay on free silver. The conference committee after spending about an hour at popoerat headquarters (HenkePs office) reported mat iney naa neia a conference with Ufford, Swiggett and Henkel and that they had agreed to gi ve the Democrats representative and the pops were to have the balance of the offices. The report of the committee was adopted. Upon motion Alfred Lawson was nominated for representative without a dissenting vote. tor the office of clerk of the district, court Hinds Swiggett, of Collyer, was nominated by acclamation. G. W Tunnell. of Riverside, was nominated for the office of probate judge by acclamation. Upon motion G. AV. Tunnell nomi nated S. M. Hutzei for countv attor ney with the remark: "Its our oulv ciiaiice. nun w looie maae a mo tion to "Let 'er blank"." Ben. C. Rich look the floor and made a motion that before we nominate a county at torney that the chairman appoint a committee of one to confer with Mr. Hutzei to learn how he feels toward free silver. J. M. Rinker was appoint ed to go and see Mr. Hutzei. For the office of county superin tendent the names, of I. G. Balcom and AV. B. Robinson were presented. A vote was taken which resulted in the election of Balcom by 20 to 9. J. M. Rinker reported that he had interviewed Mr. Hutzei and the sec retary read a note from him in which he said he was in favor of free silver and, if the convention would nomi nate him he would appear. Mr. Mnt- zel was nominated for countv attor ney by acclamat ion. He was called and made a short speech pledging, if elected, to do his duty to the best of his ability. Joshua" Musgrave was nominated for commissioner of the 1st- district. J. M. Rinker was nominated for commissioner of the 2nd district. SIXTEEN TO ONE. (By the Author of the Utile Pinner Bucket.) When jaybirds' "nests" with "tortle doves." And owls "pirff" with freese; When cotton srrows on pnrapkin vines. Ami the hedgehogs yield a fleece: Vhen rones bloom on sunflower stalks. And turnips prow on trees: When golden rod and daffodil Ntd in the winter breeze. And April "fools" itself and comes The second day of Mar: When politicians never ""lie." And tramps for breakfast pay : When thirteeu ounces make a pound. And water runs up hill: When eirxs all "hatch" and snakes won't bite. Perhaps the people will All lose their senses in a flay And think a pounds a ton. And while their heads are in a whirl Will vote "Sixteen to One." AVhy We Believe in the Gold Standard. AVe believe in the gold standard for the following reasons among others: 1. It is the accepted standard of a majority of the best enlightened and most civilized nations of the world. 2. Its intrinsic value and its coin value are practically the same. 3. The experience of the nations which have tried it has demonstrated tn:it it lis safe and sound. 4. It has been practically the standard of value in this country since 1834 and has been the absolute stand ard of value since 1873. 5. Its value fluctuates less during long periods of time than any other known metal. 6. It is durable and almost inde structible. 7. It embraces smalt compass, and venient to handle. 8. Its production constant, keeping much value, in is therefore con is increasing and pace, with the growth of population and the tle- mands of business. 9. Its real value can not be affected by legislation or by legislators, who may have pecuniary interests in mak ing or modifving monetary laws. 10. Lastly and largely because a gold standard is in the interests of a large circulating medium. Not a sin gle country having the free and un limited coinage of silver, not a single country having the silver standard has any appreciable amount of either gold or paper money in circulation. Few of them have anything at all but silver. There is little doubt that the adoption of free and unlimited coin age of silver bv this country would re sult in driving all the gold and much of the paper money out of circulation The experience of other nations justi fies this belief and, it this be true. and we firmly Delieve it would be, the contraction of the circulating medi um would be unprecedented in times of peace. The gold standard as a basis for our measure of values with as larire and as free a use of sil ver and paper as can be floated with safety has given us good satisfaction in the past and its continuance feasible and practicable.
