NEW YORK. Aug. 23.-The Herald says:
Among the more than ten thousand men
vhoso names were' enrolled in the Dry
Goods Cleveland and Stevenson Club . of
1S02. not one can he found or heard of who
supports the Chicago platform or nominees.
The New York Democrats In the dry-goods
trade organized the Cleveland and Steven
Bon Club In October, and having fitted
up rooms at Nos. 2SJ and CSS Broadway,
held the first mass meeting on Oct. 13. At
that time more than ten thousand names
appeared on the roll of membership, and
they embraced those of nearly all the Dem
ocrats In the business in New York. That
meeting was addressed by Frederick II.
Coudert. He said: "I am a good Demo
crat, but I am a citizen before I am a par
tisan. I love my country above all, and I
tell you If the Democratic party should
ever take up any measure meaning jeal
ousy and disruption, I should drop my par
tisanship Instanter and light against it as
a citizen." He is keeping his promise to
day, and the men who heard him are his
allies.
The members of the organization of 1S32
intend to form a new club, which will work
directly against the regular Democratic
platform and nomination, but it will not
take definite shape until after the IndJan
ulls convention. "We were good DAno
crats In iy& when we supported the regu
lar Democratic ticket, and we are nov good
Democrats in opposing it." said Mr. Wal
ter Stanton, of No. NJ Worth street, who
was president of the Cleveland and Ste
venson Club. "1 don't believe you will lind
one member of that club who now supports
the Chicago platform. We are now ap
pealed to as patriot, and must sink parti
sanship. I btlieve that the ultimate salva
tion of the country will come out of the
Indianapolis convention, where, I hope, a
platform will be adopted on which all pa
triotic Americans can stand and save ua
from disruption and dishonesty."
"You will find the members of the old
club all opposed to the Chicago platform,"
said Mr. Miles M. O'Brien, who was chair
man of the executive committee of the
Cleveland and Stevenson organization. "I
nm a Democrat all the time, but can t sup
port any un-Democratlc platform of repu
diation. You can't put the robe of Jeffer
son and Jackson on Altgeld and Tillman
and call it Democracy."
Charles 15. Peet. Henry Newman and
Peter V. Worrall, vice presidents of the
old club, and John P. Faure, its secretary,
all express like views.
"W must have a sound national
financial basis." said Mr. Worrall. "and
other things will take care of themselves.
Wo will have it, too, but w? mustn't rest
on a feeling of security. We must work
until the polls close election day. This
present crisis is the outgrowth of years
of miseducation. and It means hard work to
change that education in three months.
There Is much misconception that must bo,
corrected. We are a borrowing, not a lend
ing nation. We can't shut . ourselves in,
because we export too much. Jt is ridicu
lous to talk about Ignoring the rest of the
civilized world and being a law unto our
selves." "Members of the old club are all against
the platform of repudiation," said Mr. Peet.
"I was at 'the Chicago convention and saw
that this fight was inevitable. It is the
duty of every patriot to ve tor McKInley
or the Indlanaixjlis nominee. The Indian
apolis ticket will draw many votes from
Dryan and will be the cause of his de
feat. We are face to face with a dis
honest proposition. We can bear a Repub
lican tariff, but we can't stand repudiation.
We must bury the silver" craze, maintain
the national honor, and that will res re
confidence, which will bring prosperity."
MOSDY FOR M'KlXLEr,
The Ex-CoafederuteV Ilenaons for Op
posing: PopocracyV Aoiulnee.
WASHINGTON. 'Aug. 23.-Col. John S.
Mosby. who achieved notoriety during the
civil war as one of the most daring rangers
on the Confederate side, and who was sub
sequently appointed Consul-general to
China by President Grant, has addressed
an open letter to a Virginia editor who
asked Mosby's views on the political situa
tion and the policies represented by the
two presidential candidates in this coun
try. "If I had a million votes," says the ex
Confederate chieftain, "I would give them
to McKInley. I am opposed to the Popu
list ticket nominated at Chicago. The
United States was placed on the gold stand
ard by Andrew Jackson over sixty years
ago, and we have been there ever since. I
am opposed to substituting for it new a
depreciated currency, and descending to a
commercial level with Slam. I was opposed
to the Rland silver hill in 1ST, because 1
regarded it as repudiation in disguise, and
the first financial step in the oescent to
Avernus, where Coxey and Bryan are try
ing to land us. Experience has confirmed
the opinions forme! then.
"During a residence of several years in
China and in frequent visits to Mexico, that
has free coinage. I never saw a piece of
gold In circulation. By a natural law, as
universal as that of gravitation, the cheap
er always drives out the dearer currency.
Bimetallism by which is meant the coin
age and circulation of two metals on pri
vate account, with full legal-tender valur
Is a dream that can never be realized. Of
course the government can coin both
metals, but only the Inferior will circulate.
On the recognition of this principle, the
English monetary system is founded.
" 'But. says the Coxey platform, 'that is
British policy, and we ought not to follow
It.' And so is the habeas corpus act and
our great Inheritance of free institutions.
To discard a policy merely because a great
commercial nation waa the first to udopt
it would be as absurd as to accept the Bev.
John Jasier's theory of the solar system
In preference to Newton's.
The question of the so-called double
standard Is not a new one: it vexed Eu
rope, for two hundred years, and was final
ly condemned as Impracticable by the
greatest statesmen and economists. Bimet
allism, or the marriage of the two metals,
never has existed und never can exist any
where. The laws of nature tcrbld it. Na
poleon's attempt to establish it in France
was as great a failure as the expedition to
Moscow. For eighty years the United
States had a free coinage law. but always.
In fact, had the single standard- first sil
ver, and then gold.
"Senator Daniel said In his speech at the
convention: We have go!d and sliver dol
lars circulating to-ether at par to-day. by
virtue of the government's stamp,' which
Is a refutation of the theory of the econ
omists. If a representative of the terri
tory of Bed Cloud and Sitting Bull said
so I would have felt no surprise, but a
Virginia Senator should know better. Thr
reason why silver dollars pass as the
equal of gold dollars is the pledge of the
government to maintain their equality with
gold. Just as the note of a tramp might
be negotiated In bank with Astor's or
Vanderbllt's indorsement upon it. When
greenbacks were depreciated SO per cent,
they had the same stamp on them that
they have now.
"If there is any such magic In a stamp

such a transformation of value can be ef
fected, then why not try It on copper and
turn the great Anaconda mine Into coin?
1 believe In monometaIlm Just as I believe
in any other law of nature; the revolu
tion of the earth and the motion of the
Planets. For the same reason that depre
ciated greenbacks drive specie out of circu
lation, depreciated sliver with free coin
age would drive gold out of circu
lation. With free coinage there is no guar
anty of the equality of the coins, but each
metal stands on its merits. The so-called
double standard is an idyl that might have
deceived a simple, bucolic age; it Is out
of date in the nineteenth century.
"In 1S73. when the sliver dollar was
dropped by law. It had become as obso
lete as a Roman coin found at Pompeii.
The law simply recognized an existing fact:
Theoretically we had a bimetallic stand
ard; practically a monometallic go'd stand
ard. Th enlightened nations of the world
would no sooner think of restoring the old,
dlscreted system than of going back to
the Iron money of the Spartans.
"There is a combination supporting the
Populist ticket with entirely opposite ends
In view. The miners who demonetized
silver when It was at a premium by re
fusing to coin, now want the government
to create for their benefit an artificial
value by coining their silver at the ratio of
11 to 1. wh"n ;t is worth In the market only
02 to 1. They think that this will lift sil
ver to a par with gold. The miners would
be the only people benefited by the rise:
the other class of silver enthusiasts who
want cheap money and inflated prices
would be out. In .the cold. If the silver
dollar is equal to the gold dollar, there
will be no rise In prices and no advantage
in paying off debts in silver. There would
be no more money In actaal circulation
than there Is now. Coxey and the vaga
bonds who are following him want silver
to go flown the cheaper It is, the better
for them. The silver kings want it to go
up.
frudge Hughes laments that the Virginia
farmers have no metallic money. I was
In Virginia some months ago and heard
a good deal of complaint about the scarcity
but not a word nbout the quality of the
money people had. All that I saw was as
good as gold. Silver was the currency
when our rude forefathers were eating
acorns in the German forests. The Virgin
la people long ago passed that primitive
stage when they carried their money in
their saddle bags or a buckskin belt. Judge
Hughes is a farmer as well as a judge. He
only grieves over the fall in what he has
to sell. It is plain that he would like to
sell by one measure and buy by another.
He further says that with freo coinage sil
ver would rise to a premium over gold.
That would be a blessing to the silver
kings, but It is hard to see what advan
tage It would be to the Virginia farmers.
We would still be on the gold standard,
for no currency at a premium ever circu
lates as money.
"That fact was demonstrated by oir ex
perience after the act of 111, when silver
went at a premium. I have never yet
been able to see how a laborer can be ben
efited by debasing the mony in which his
wages are paid, or how people can gt rich
by watering their currency. Judge Hughes
censures the administration for not paying
out silver. The Treasury Department would
be made to do so but the people won't
have It. Judge Hughes has for over twen
ty years been drawing a salary from the
government and I venture to say that he
has always drawn it in greenbacks or gold.
H teaches by precept, not by example.
"There is a widespread alarm la the
country nt the remote prospect of the elec
tion of the Populist ticket. People are pre
paring for the deluge by putting their gold
in safety deposit boxes or old stockings;
every one sets the panic and disorder that
must result from a change in the measure
of value by which we have lived and con
tracts have been made for over sixty years.
Wealth cannot be created by blowing bub
bles. The silver craze Is one of those peri
odical epidemics that have passed over the
country. They always breed demagogy.
Men are still living who can remember
when people were run mad over the morus
multkatulis and everybody was going to
get rich off mulberry leaves. Mulberry
loaves are a surer foundation for a fortune
than fiat money."

3Illltary tirfttinizntlon.
CLEVELAND, O., Aug. 23.-Great crowds
of visitors were attracted to the Knights
of Pythias encampment to-day, it being
estimated that fifty thousand spectators
witnessed the dress parade of the Second
(Ohio) Regiment this afternoon. This Is
the only full regiment yet at the camp,
but It is expected that all the Ohio Knights
will le here by to-morrow. Among the di
visions which arrived to-day were those
from Pittsburg. Allegheny and Lancaster,
Pa., and Muncle, Ind., and the first battal
ion of the First Regiment from Charleston
and Parkersburg, W. Va. To-morrow aft
ernoon at 4 o'clock Director-general Day,
of the centennial commission, will formally
turn over the camp to Major General car
nahan. The exercises at the camp this aft
ernoon consisted of the dress parade and a
sacred band concert. This evening many
of the visiting Knights attended services at
the Epworth Memorial M. E. Church, and
listened to an appropriate sermon by the
pastor.
Among the attractions at the camp is
Lafayette (Ind.) Division of the Uniform
Bank, which has won more prizes than any
other division in the country, even though
It has not competed in prize drills In eight
years. There is also present the crack
division from Hastings, Mich. Both of
these divisions will be in the parade and
competitive drill.
Major General Caruahan, in speaking to
day of the Knights as a military organi
zation, said it was part of the unwritten
law of the order that the Knights should
respond to-the call of the government in
time of need, especially if It was necessary
to repel an invasion by a foreign foe. The
Knights were not In any sense guardsmen,
he said, and they would not take part In
internal dissensions unless It was necessary
to preserve order and uphold the laws.
Supreme Chancellor Bichle. in speaking
to-day of the policy of the order, said there
woum probably be no change. "Trie same
lessons that it teaches men to-day," he
said, "will be good for men a thousand
years hence. No great question of policy
will be debated at the present session of
the Supreme Lodge. The German question
and the saloon question were both finally
settled, and in a definite, decided and plain
manner."
The Bathbone Sisters, one of the auxil
iary orders of Pythianism, has its head
quarters at the Weddell Hou?e. The most
Important business to come before its meet
ing is the election of a supreme senior.
The leading candidates for the place are
Mrs. J. B. S. Neubert, of Kansas City, and
Mrs. Nellie Scattedgood. of Michigan, and
some lively electioneering in their behalf
is already going on. It is expected that the
headquarters of all the other auxiliary so
cieties will be opened before to-morrow
night.

New York Sun.
A certain Ass and a Horse occupied ad
joining stalls in a large Barn. They were
fed on nutritious golden Grain and as much
freshiy-cut Clover as was good for their
Health. This Diet kept them in good con
dition, and made them strong enough to
perform ther Duties to the satisfaction of
the Farmer who owned them. The Ass
however, was continually complaining be
cause his Coat was not so sleek as that
of the Horse.
If a little Clover Is a Good Thing, he
thought, unlimited Clover would make a
bitfger Ass of me. and It Is what I need to
fatten nu up and improve my Coat. Then
he told the Horse that he proposed to eat
up all th1 Clover in the pasture the next
time the Farmer turned tiiem into it. The
Horse pointed out to him how absurd It
was for one Ass to try to eat all the Clover
In a forty-acre lot without assistance, and
advised him to stick to his present Diet, as
the difference in their Coats was due to
Other causes. But the Ass would not listen
to Horse Sense and braved loudlv in nnwor

The first time the Farruer turned him Into
the pasture the Ass started in to eat up all
the Clover In siijht. He ate so fast and so
much that he deranged his Digestive Ap

Surgeon was at hand, the poor Ass kept
swelling up until he finally burst. When

JOHN CHAMBERLIN DEAD
FAMOUS AS A SPORTSMAN GOIR3IET
AND STORY TELLER.
Known to Many StateNmen nml the
Personal Friend of Con kl lug; und
Others Ills Varied Career.
SARATOGA. N. Y.. Aug. 23. John Cham
beriin. of Washington, died to-night at the
Grand L'nion Hotel. He had been in a
comatose sate for thirty hours. His death
was due to a complication of kidney
troubles.
John Chamberlin was born at Pittsfield,
Mass., lr. September, 1SGG. He received a
common school education there, but moved
to New York city before he was of age.
Early in life he was engaged on the Mis
sissippi river as the dispenser of liquid re
freshments on one of the swell steam
boats that plied between St. Louis and
New Orleans. He made enough money on
ihr river to go into business in St. Louis,
and his establishment was one of the
noted places of the city. Chamberlin had
then, as at all other periods of his life, the
exceptional faculty of gathering about him
men of the highest social standing and
greatest influence.
Amassing considerable capital In the
West, he ' returned to New York and in
partnership with Price McGrath opened up
a clubhouse near the site of the Hoffman
House that from the very outset did an
enormous business. At Chamberlln's could
be found every night dozens of men of
national reputation, from every walk of
life, and there the greatest politicians of
the country were wont to come. In those
days sporting was fashionable, and no
where in the land could such pastime be
carled on under auspices so pleasant us at
John Chamberlin's. The play ran high in
those times, and many were the games
in which the lowest-priced chips repre
sented $13 each. The clubhouse was fur
nished in a way that a king might envy,
and on its walls hung oil paintings worth
many thousands. Free dinners were given
that were the delight of the epicures, and
unlimited hospitality prevailed. Money
Mowed into Chamberlin's hands in a contin
uous stream, but he did not attend to the
details of his business, a brother, Mr.
William Chamberlin. being invested with
the actual management.
HIS GREAT AMBITION.
Besides the New York establishment,
Chamberlin also founded the Club House
at Long Branch, now operated by Thll
Daly. On closing out the former place he
went to Washington, and after conducting
clubhouses there for a few years, the last
in the building on New York avenue, now
occupied by the Young Men's Christian
Association, he took the hotel at the corner
of Fifteenth and I streets. He lived to
see realized, but not to enjoy, the crowning
ambition of his life the completion of the
marnlficent hotel at Old Point Comfort
that bears his name. It was thrown open
to the public just a few months ago, and
at that time nobody dreamed that the man
whose Indomitable will had succeeded in
an undertaking that often seemed hope
less would so soon drop from the ranks of
the living. Of the assemblage at the open
ing of the Chamberlin. he was the gayept.
for after years of discouragement and ar
duous work, he had at last achieved the
one object that his heart had been so
deply set on. But during all the years to
come that palatial structure will be his
monument.
In his bearing John Chamberlain was one
of the most fascinating men. He could tell
good stories by the hour and his stock of
remlnlseenses was unlimited. Even when
disease pressed him sorely and it was evi
dent to everyone that his days were num
bered, he kept up his courage and genial
ways. He never complained and stoutly as
serted that he was improving when in
quiries were made about his health. When
in Washington for the last time, some three
weeks since, he joked with all of his
frleinds. and his plucky bearing led many
to think that he would yet surmount his
aliments.
His whole life seemed animated with a
desire to make other people happy. He
gathered about his boaril the noblest and
wittiest spirits in America. To them he
gave dinners that were poems and In the
art of entertaining splendidly no man of
this age ever proved himself John Cham
berlin's equal. His strong personal friends
were legion. Roscoe Conkling loved him as
a brother, and he was only one of many.
Ills death will be sore tidings to Secretary
Lamont, to General Miles, to John W .
Mackey. to Thomas P. Ochiltree, to Wil
liam F. Cody, to Henry Watterson, and a
hundred more of equal fame. It was Cham
berlin's great delight to assemble such as
these about him.
A writer in the New York Evening
World says:
"Jovial John" Chamberlin has been cred
ited with more good things said and done,
during his long career before the public as
a favorite and famed bonlface than have
fallen from the dips or been done by the
hand of most men. He was a welcome visa-vis
at a table set for two and a lively
raconteur where many dined, and a news
paper paragraph under the eye of the writ
er, recounting John Chamberlln's doings
for a certain August month, says: "He
has dined since the season opened with
Senators at Newport. Cabinet ministers at
Bar Harbor. Congressmen at Narragansett,
beauty at Old Point, diplomacy at Len
ox, bous vlvants at Long Branch. Sports
men at Saratoga, connoisseurs at Cohasset,
and assorted colonels, captains anei fisher
men at Cape May."
A NEVER FAILING APPETITE.
Besides being a gourmet, John Chamber
lin was noted for a never faiHng appetite
of startling proportions. An observant
chronicler relates that Chamberlin and a
friend, dropping in at a famous uptown
oyster house one evening and taking the
table next to his. ate eighteen medium
sized oysters apiece while waiting for the
cook to boll a large lobster, cleft alive from
end to end before their eyes. After the
oyster and this lobster were disposed ox
the two gourmets ate a dozen oysters each,
moistening each oyster with a dip or two
of specially prepared pepper sauce; then
followed a "No. 2" lobster, Welsh rarebits
for two and two dozen roasted clams.
Chamberlin In his day owned record
breaking horses and leaves a reputation for
unbroken records In the making of dishes
never equaled. He opened ad for many
years maintained Monmouth Park, then the
most famous race track on the Atlantic
coast. He was a power In the social and
semi-public life of New York city in the
days when John Morrissev, by the aid of
his race track and clubho'use at Saratoga
and his clubhouse in Twenty-fourth street,
dominated a certain element In the political
and sporting life in the East. A quarter
of a century ago John Morriss-?y was known
chiefly as a prize lighter, and gathered at
his Twenty-fourth-street clubhouse the
Eastern and tough element, while Cham
berlin's Tw.enty-lifth-street house was the
favorite rendezvous of the Western and
Southern and more artistocratlc part of
New York's floating life, and these two had
their rows in politics and in many other
things.
Chamberlin first became Identified with
the turf in 1ST0, though he had been inter
ested in horses at Lexington. St. Louis, old
Mctalrle. New Orleans, und other famous
tracks in the days long before that, when
turf racing was distinctly a Southern sport.
In 1M5. when Leonard Jerome spent half
a million in making Jerome Park what it
was before he sold it to the association.
Chamberlln's roundhouse, back of the car
riages, was the only place to pick a bird
and c"dy his faithful old black "Trusty"
knew ow to pour out a glass of champagne
frapp..
Among John Chamberlin's friends in those
nnclent days were Robert Alexander, the
Kentucky breeder, who sold El Bio Rev's
sire. Norfolk, to Theodore Winters for
$15.001 the odd dollar being added to the
price, according to Chamberlln's way of
telling it. because everybody laughed at
Alexander for paying Jl.YOeO for Lexington,
sire of Norfolk, a miserable o!d blind stai
Mon., and Bcb vowed he'd sell one of old
Lexington's progeny for more money than
h gave for the sire. Other friends of
I'hamberlin were John M. Clay, a son of
Henry Clay: Oeneral Abe Buford and his
brother Tom, who shot a, Kentucky Jude
of the Court of Appeals, and owned Dela
ware, Onwaii anil other famous horses
afterwards sold to Denison & Crawford.
It cot John Chamberlin $2'.(i to create
Monmouth Park. Long Branch, In 1ST0. He
sold it seven years latr for less than a
quarter of the sum. It had been the scone
of the most famous racing events, gather
ing crowds as large even as those which
attend the Suburban of ..to-day. Such a
crowd saw the duel of wind and muscle
and nerve between Iongfellow ami Harry
Basset t July 2. 1S72.
HIS RACE TRACK It EVEN FES.
But Chambrlln went to California with
True Blue in 1ST7. "I was sure I would win
tlvtt four-mile heat race In California,"
ald Chamberlin. once. In relating the story
of his downfall. "True Blue was the horse
to do It with. He was the gamest race
horse I ever knew. I was offered S3.".000 for
True Blue before I started. It cost $7,000 to
go to California.
"I had to beat Thad Stevens and Joe
Daniels, and had won the second heat with
Tim Robins up. It was dollars to dough
nuts I would win the third heat, but It
was there the dirty work was done. Palm
er, a jockey with a bad record, was up
on one of the other horses. The horses
were out of sicht of the judges, on the
back stretch. When they came In sight
again True Blue had been cut down cruel
ly, ruined as a race horse: the race was
lest and I was out just $73,000." Other re
verses followed, and Chamberlin had to
sell Monmouth track.
Chamberlin had known Senator Benjamin
Harrison intimately for years, but was an
prdent Cleveland man In the campaign of
Harrison won. The two men met
shortly after election. John congratulated
Benjamin.
"Yes, John, but I . understand you op
posed me pretty bitterly," said the President-elect,
good-naturedly.
"You see. it was this way. Senator." re
plied Ch imb?rlin. "I was for Cleveland
first and you next; and, you see, I got a
place." ' . -
In a discussion of Washington city's
equestrian statues. Chamberlin insisted
that the horse in the Thomas statue was
far and away the best of all. his friend.
Lieutenant Young, favoring the Scott nag.
Next night Young got Senator Beck into
a similar discussion, this time champion
ing the bronze nag under Thomas and of
fering a wager of $h0 on it, leaving it to
John Chamberlln's decision. The Senator
took the wager and. to the astonishment
of the lieutenant, Chamberlin declared the
Thomas horse a disgrace to Washington
and the sculptor who pretended it was a
horse. 1
When afterwards Young upbraided him
for his fickleness, Chamberlin replied bland
ly: "My private opinion is unchanged, but,
bless you, you couldn't expect me to de
cide a bet In favor of a mere lieutenant In
the navy against a United States Sen
ator!" "Do you know an experienced chef can
fool the finest gourmet?" Chamberlin used
to fay. "I had an old fish hawk dressed
and cooked as a young Knode Island tur
key the best that's to be eaten, they are
anil served to President Moses P. Handy,
of the Clover Club, and a deputation of
that famous club cf 'roas.crs' at my Wash
ington place. They ate It and didn't dis
cover the deception until the next day.
" 'There is everything in the sauce.' as
Brillat Savarin used to say, sagely. They
used to get up a great barbecue the day
before the Southern racing meet to attract
the good livers. Price McGrath used to
give " 'burgoo at his meetings. A burgoo
was a delicious thing. Oxen and sheep
were roasted whole. I used to have clam
bakes at Monmouth.
"Racing men drink more whisky than
anything else. I guess," said Chamberlin
once. "Anc plenty cf champagne, to boot,"
he added. "I den't believe I ever knew a
horseman who was a teetotaller."

FALLACIES ABOUT MONEY.
The Kind of Bimetallism the Country

To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal:
The Indianapolis Sentinel, in its issue of
Aug. 21, claims as a fact that we had actual
bimetallism from 17?3 to 1S20 at a ratio of
13 to 1, and again from 1S31 to 1K0 at a
ratio of 1G to 1, al a parity with gold.
Now, I do not know anything from actual
experience of the first period, but of the
second I was a living factor In the experi
ence of the American people, and let me
say in this connection that one ounce of
actual experience Is worth more than one
pound of theoretical writing by paid edi
torial employes. I know not only by au
thority of "holy. wrL" but on general prin
ciples and experience that the greatest folly
is to try to answer or meet the questions" of
a child or a person mentally daft, which
in this case is the same as trying to answer,
tho questions or claims of the silver mon
cmetallist, for as to argument they, present
none that men of brains can weigh or con-'
sider. The truth is, that between the dates
nameel the currency of . the country was
neither gpld nor silver, but coonskins,
loonskins, ginseng, with an occasional
shlnplaster issued by some crossroads gro
cery, or foreign coin made up mostly of
Spanish sliver, including the Spanish pillar
dollar and quarter, the fi'pennyblt (6U cents)
and 'levenpen.ee (12i cents.) As to the parity
of American gold .and silver there wasn't
any of it, or, if so, as rare as freaks In
Barnum's museum. There seems to be a
fact that the youthful editor of the Sentinel
and the Bryan Democratic party cannot
grasp. That 13, that this great American
country has grown sorq,Jwnat In the last
sixty years: has put off lt swaddling clothes
and has taken Its place among and along
side the older and greater nations of the
earth; has quit using as an exchange cur
rency such as I have mentloneel, and is
now ready to assert its national manhood
and honesty to the balance of the
world and bo recognized as
one of the greatest commercial, as
well as ruling, nations of the world, and to
adopt a currency based upon a standard
recognizeel and respectetl the world over.
The Bible says, "No man liveth to himself."
Neither does any ration in tnis age of
universal progress and enlightenment live
to itself. Coonsklns may have answered
at one time in Indiana, ginseng in Ohio,
loonskins in Minnesota, and silver mono
metallism may do even now In China. Mex
ico. Japan and other behind-the-date na
tions, but no nation can of Itself declare
by legislative enactment that coonsklns,
ginseng or shinplastera shall be a legal
tender currency and force their acceptance
upon the general commercial world; neither
can this Nation, great as It is, declare 53
cents to be worth 100 cents and make the
world take it at par. As well might it
be claimed that a bundle of paper could be
taken to the government and have the gov
ernment print paper dollars, w hen the gov
ernment could and would only signify
that "this 13 genuine paper." This Is all
that the government could and would do
under free coinage of silver its stamp
would simnly mean, this is silver of the
required fineness and of requlsiie weight.
It does not and cannot change its bullion
value, anv mere than It could change, by
unlimited issue of paper currency, the value
of the paper upon whlch.it was printed.
But why waste any more of your valu
able space In trying to make the willingly
and willfully blind Sentinel see facts of
such momentous Interest to the future
prosperity and perpetuity of this country?
It semes that the Sentinel and Its Demo
ltstic or Pcpocratlc party are biindly at
tempting by deception and misrepresenta
tion of the financial problems to turn back
the indicator on the dial of progress in
this country to the i'.ge of current barter
In pelts, roots and shlnplasters. Some of
us renumber this not gold and silver age
tha-t the Sentinel so lllppantly prates
about as the age of ginseng, cor
eluroy reads, chills and fever and hard
toil, with our cornbread. wild fruits and an
occasional squirrel potpie; with bare legs
and stone bruises and little school advan
tages for our children, and, although a
little old-fashioned ourselves, we are com
pelled bv the light of these modern days
to sav that this age of gold, silver and
government paper currency in abundance,
as good as the best on earth. Is much bet
ter and preferable to the so-called parity
of gold and silver times between 17y3 and
isr.l. vith its diversified local currency,
changing its value In crossing State, coun
ty or township lines. Let xne say, in con
clusion, that experience Is a great teacher,
and one that. If wise, we will heed at this
time wliiii nun may be.carrleel off their
feet by tho windy assertions of some the
oretical and mercenary mountebank. No
man can got something for nothing hon
estly. If we would be honest and true to
our government and ourselves, let us not
ask our government to help us defraud
our creditors by asking them or compiling
them to take for afull dollar one of half
its value in return. In this we may drown
ourselves, but cannot pull beneath tho sur
face the remainder of the commerelal
world. C.

MR. BYNUM MAY GET IT

GIVEN TO TIIK UOOSILIl.
The Georgian's Reason for Resign
ing llln Cabinet Ofllee of Score
re tar y of the interior.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 23. The news that
Secretary Hoke Smith had resigned and
that his resignation had been accepted by
the President created considerable stir in
political circles here, to-day. although the
probability of Mr. Smith's retirement had
been, in a measure, anticipated ever since
his paper, the Atlanta Journal, declared
that it would support Bryan and Sewall.
Mr. Smith still declined to discuss the sub
ject to-day, but it Is known that the per
sonal relations between the President and
Mr. Smith have in no wise been disturbed.
Mr. Smith's resignation, his friends say,
grew out of his differences with his chief
on the question of party policy and his
delicate desire not to embarrass tho Presi
dent at such a time. Beyond the question
of his conception of party loyalty in ac
quiescing in the will of the majority, Mr.
Smith, during his campaign for the gold
standard in Georgia against ex-Speaker
Crisp had given a personal pledge that he
would, if defeated, support the nominees
of the convention. As an honorable
man his friends say he felt it his duty to
redeem that pledge. He informed the
President of his position and intentions,
and, to avoid embarrassment, placed his
resignation at his disposal. It is said that
Mr. Cleveland remonstrated. The cor
respondence on the subject, if published,
would no doubt bevery interesting, but it
is doubtful if it will be given out. It can
bo stated, however, with great positlve
ncss that the step which Secretary Smith
felt himself compelled to take has not in
any way affected tho warm regard the
President and Mr. Smith entertain for
each other.
There has been a great deal of gossip
about Mr. Smith's successor to-day. It
seems altogether unlikely, that John M.
Reynolds, the Assistant Secretary, will be
promoted. It is regarded as much more
probable that a new man will be selected,
probably from tho middle West, Indiana,
Illinois or Missouri. The name of ex-Governor
Francis, of Missouri, ex-Congressman
Bynum, of Indiana, and ex-Congressman
Ben Cable, of Illinois, are those
around which gossip most persistently
clings. All are pronounced gold Demo
crats. TIIK PARIS EXPOSITION.
Franee "Wnntu to Know the An me of
the American Commissioner.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 23. The French
government is rapidly', .perfecting, the. de
tails for the International expositloa to
be held In Paris in 1D0J commemorating the
birth of the century, and, in this connec
tion, has asked the State Department' for
the name of the commissioner-general who
will represent the United States, and for
such other information available- as to the
participation of this country. To this act
ing Secretary Bockhill has replienl that tho
commissioner-general has not been named,
as the American Congress took no steps at
Its recent session to provide for an" Ameri
can representative at the exposition. He ex
pressed the belief, however, that the ap
proaching session of Congress will bring
about an acccptanco of the invitation of
the French republic.
President Cleveland called the attention
of Congress to -the invitation In his annual
message last December, and expressed the
most earnest hope that steps would bo
taken for an adequate representation by
tho United States. But Congress acts
slowly on these affairs, and no measure
was considered, the idea being that there
was plenty of time before 1200. It apiears,
however, that Git at Britain, Germany and
other leading powers have been quick to
accept, and tho French government is ai
lotting space to these countries. American
exhibitors are beginning to make inquiry
as to where their goods will go. but no
answer can bo given to them. The pros
pect Is that the best space will be taken
before the United States accepts the in
vitation ami makes application for space.
This was the case at the last exposition,
when American exhibitors vere at much
disadvantage in point of location.
It is expected in orticial circles here that
when Congress acts it will provide for a
commissioner-general and an assistant.
This was the case at the last French ex
position, when General Franklin was commissioner-general
at a salary of $10,000 and
the assistant commissioner received $3.0uO.
The opinion prevails that as the appointee
will serve after the present administration
ends. President Cleveland will not make
the appointment, even thoush Congress
passes the act beforo March 4 next. Aside
from the direct emoluments attached to
the office a fund Is provided for office and
living expense's. In the case of General
Franklin the French government conferred
on him the exceptional honor of the cross
of the Legion of Honor, while the assistant
commissioner received a lesser distinction.
A DISCRIMINATING LAW.
Foreigner "Want the Snme Rightn an
American Ships.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 23. On the sugges
tion, of the government of Norway and
Sweden the Stat Department is looking
into the treaty rights of foreign nations to
have their merchant ships enjoy certain
privileges which tho American laws give
to American ships. The French govern
ment also is interested in the question and
its determination would apply to the ex
tensive merchant marine service of Great
Britain and Germany with the United
States. The question has arisen in connec
tion with a comparatively minor law passed
by the last Congress, which provided that
small packages Imported to tho country by
vessels of the United States should be ex
pedited in their shipment across the coun
try by not having to go into a bonded
warehouse at the port of arrival. It aj
plles to presents and small personal pack
ages sent from abroad, and not to the bulk
of merchandise. Secretary Carlisle has
proceeded to execute the law. although the
intimation has been made that he would
suspend the law because It was In confiict
with the treaty rights. Treasury ofliclals
take the ground, however, that questions
of treaties are not for them to decide and
that their only duty is to enforce the law
as they find it. They have received a let
ter from the State Department calling at
tention to the desire of the foreign govern
ments to be included in the privileges of
the law, to which the treasury has replied
that the. law gives no authority to extend
tho privilege beyond ships of the United
States. This leaves the question to be de
termined by the State Department, where
the navigation and shipping provisions of
various treaties with foreign countries are
being looked into.

Mr. Banna's Ideas.
New York Special.
Mr. Itanna believes In making the most
thorough kind of a light. He Is of the
opinion that overcontMetiee is the worst
feature of a political battle. He does not
hesitate to tell his friends that the battle
in Illinois will lo ? terrific one. He Is in
this fight to crush Uryanism and to smash
the Anarchlstic-Popullstic Chicago pat
form m such fashion that the American
people will not be terrorize'il with a sim
ilar performance in many years.
Mr. Hanna Is well aware that tho Dem
ocrats of New York State have no more
hope of carrying the State than they have
of jumping offhand into heaven. Mr.
Hanna has many friends in the Demo
cratic camp, and he has sources of in
formation which are of value. He believes,
therefore, that th fight should be directed
from Chicago and all of the sound-money
batteries should be trained on Indiana, Illi
nois. Wisconsin. Minnesota and Iowa. As
a matter of Tact the Repubdcan national
campaigners do not believe that Bryan
will carry his own State cf Nebraska, but
on the contrary they are predicting that
he will lose it by anywhere from 13.000 to
C0.O0O.
Senator Thurston, of Nebraska, was at
the Chicago headquarters to-day on his
way East to speak In Vermont and Maine.
The following interview with Senator
Thurston was telephoned from Chicago:

BRYAN'S TWO SPEECHES.
The ChtcnRo and tt York Effort
Ably Compared by a Knnan Mnn.
Topeka Letter in Kansas City Journal.
When questioned by the correspondent
to-day as to both of Bryan's speeches,
about which so much Is ielng said. Mr.
Eugene F. Ware, who heard the first and
read the second, replied as follows:
"I do not know whether I can answer
your question or fill your expectation In
my description of Bryan's great conven
tion speech. I was present and heard it
all. I soon saw after Mr. Bryan legan
talking that his remarks were so thor
oughly memorized that he need not use
his mind to reason or construct sentences
with, but that he could devote It to pro
ducing an effect. He had on that occasion
what might be called an automatic mouth,
and his entire attention was devoted to
his appearance, gestures and 'trick lines
The speech was a wonderful speech from
the fact that Mr. Bryan has a wonderfuL
voice; he is what might be called a prose
opera singer and was in that speech what
CampaninI was in 'Trovatore. Everything
Is pitched on a chord, whether It is a jews
harp. a railroad bridge or an auditorium.
Mr. Bryan with his wonderful voice got
the pitch of the building and was heard
elistlnctly everywhere over the area where
thousands were seated who could not hear
any other speaker that spoke in the hall.
Perhaps no such voice as his had ever
been heard before in a national convention.
It was the voice which captured the peo
ple. Not what he said, but the voice and
the way he used. it. As those who listened
had more ears than Intelligence, be cap
tured the audience.
"The speech was a phenomenon. No man
on earth could do it twice; Mr. Bryan
cannot do it again and there is not one
man in ten millions who can do It at all.
The result of that speech will be to give
the American people 'the foot and mouth
disease,' as Governor Gllck termed It when
he called the Legislature together In spe
cial session. People will be tramping
around over the country talking, that but
for Bryan's sneech would have spared the
public. Schools will be teaching oratory.
Everybody will be talking on all occasions,
and It will take the American people twenty-live
years to recover from It and the
amount of woe and suffering will nver
b computed. The disease will be called
'Bryanism and audiences will be 'Bry-anl-sed.'
"Mr. Bryan did not try again In New
York to do what he did in Chicago, and
he was very wise in not doing it. I have
read his New York speech and see that he
boldly Indorses the idea that 'distinctions
in society will always exist under every
just government.' and that 'equality of
talents, of education or of wealth, cannot
be produced by human Institutions.' His
speech is exceedingly conservative. He
does not seek to overthrow existing Insti
tutions. He will respect and uphold prop
erty rights. He says his party under
stands the genius of our Institutions and
are stanch supporters of our form of gov
ernment. He endeavors to point out to the
bankers how free sliver will be for their
Interests, and how 'the gpld standard is
ruinous to merchants and manufacturers.'
If that which he says is true he does not
fathom the politics of the Kansas 'Pop.'
Thev elo not want any parly or any laws
of that kind. If they thought that 'free
silver would benefit the bankers they
would not support It. The Populists are
not infatuated with our present institu
tions; and while Mr. Bryan's speech may
sound well in New .York he must not make
that speech In Kansas or he will lose every
Populist vote in the State especially when
he savs the following:
" 'We (meaning himself and his party)
contend that free and unlimited coinage
by the United States alone will raise the
bullion value of silver to its coinage valu.
and thus make silver bullion worth $1.23
per ounce in gold throughout the world.'
"If that Is so it will make silver as diffi
cult to get as gold, because it will be worth
gold, and the farmer will sell his wheat on
the gold standard ns before. If his legisla
tion is going to maintain a gold standard
the Populists of Kansas den't want it. The
Populists of Kansas expect by free coinage
that there Is meant a condition of things
by which all the silver of the world will
come to the United States and be coined,
and that just as fast as a wagonload of
silver dollars Is coined the wagon will be
driven out Into the hi eh way and a man
with a scoop .shovel will throw It out and
let the peoole scramble for the coin. Mr.
Bryan cannot capture Kansas Populists by
saying that free coinage will bring a silver
dollar Immediately up to the gold standard,
where It will be just as hard to get as gold.
The Kansas Ponulist don't want anything
rated by gold. He hates golel and wants to
see Jt abolished, and if the Populistlc farm
er must sell his w heat on the gold standard
he won't be able to sec where the benefits
of free silver come in. Mr. Bryan's speech
Is full of things which will be conclusively
answereel as the campaign progresses, and
by the 1st of October those who are manag
ing bis campaign will wish that speech was
sunk a thousand fathoms deep. If Mr.
Bryan's views could be demonstrated In ad
vance on the effect of free coinaee bringr
fnff all silver up to a gold standard everv
Republican in Kansas would vote for It and
every Populist against it."
FREE SPEECH AND FREE STREETS.
Jndee Cox May .Mean Well, hut In
Deficient in Logie.
Chicago Tribune.
Judge Cox, of the Indianapolis City Court.
Is getting a good deal of Popocratic praise
just now because, he has refused to punish
persons who have been arrested for ob
structing the public streets while engaged
in political argument or In listening to the
political arguments of others. The learned
Judge, sitting in awful majesty In his Po
lice Court, calls upon the Constitution of
the United States to uphold him in his con
tention that the rights of peaceable assem
blage and of free speech shall not be abro
gated, and affirms that the people have
perfect liberty to discuss what he calls the
"puzzling questions" of the times, in which
liberty be will protect them with all the
vast powers confided to him. And there
fore he releases all persons in durance for
violation of a city ordinance' providing that
the public streets shall at all times be
thoroughfares.
Doubtless the Judge means well. But he
should pause in his mad carrer of no-logic
to refiect that there are plenty of "vacant
lots In Indianapolis and a number of public
halls that can be hired; and that if the
crowds of pe'ople who want to exercise
their lungs or their eardrums should be too
large for these places there is practically
unlimited extent of level prairie surround
ing Indianapolis on all sides. There is noth
ing in the Constitution that declares that a
part of the people shall have the right to
prevent the rest of the people from going
up and down the streets of the cities where
they pay taxes if they have business to
attend to.
No Chicago Dogberry, if any such there
be in this enlightened community, should
permit himsejf to be governed by the Cox
precedent. The streets of Chicago belong
to the whole people, not to a portion of
them. From every point of view the more
the fre-e-coiners talk the better, but they
must keep off the public sidewalks and
must not obstruct the highways.
THE PRICE OF CORN.
A Good Teat of the Stendlnes in
Irlee of Silver nntl Goltl.
New York Evening Post.
The free-silver advocates who try to
prove by the price of farm products that
silver has not depreciated are not disposed
to go into details as to the price of corn.
And yet corn is the best of all our farm
products by which to make a test of the
steadiness in price of silver or gold. It Is
the bes for reasons which are easily stated
and easy to understand. It Is by far the
largest of our grain products and has been
so for many years. It Is also by far the
most generally distributed. According to
the agricultural report for isy twenty-six
States produced over 10..(A) bushels of
eorn each, while only half as many States
produced as much us 1U.o0.ij bushels of
wheat. Still further, its price Is least af
fected by foreign conditions. We produce
over SO per cent, ot the world's product
and consume almost all of It at home. For
many years our average export of corn
has been only a lit t let over 3 jer cent, of
the crop. Apr In. the cost of producing
corn has varied less In recent years than
In the case of most agricultural products.
This Is true because the methods of plant
Irg. tillage and harvesting are almost un
changed as compared with the period im
mediately preceding the great decline In
the price of silver.
All these facts go to show. In the eyes
of any opn-mlnded observer, that the prle
of corn, on an average, should theoretical
ly have remained nearly stationary as
compared with a steady standard of value.
Now let us turn from theory to fact and
see how we eom out. Has this steadiest
of all our great agricultural products fall
en with the price of silver bullion, or h;:s
It remained ewarly.-yn, a par with gold?

except positions filled by the Prerldcnt with

fashion:
For Instance, the Secretary of the Treas

to except the oGlce of chief clerk from ex

Cleveland to require vacancies In the higher
