Stormy Meeting of Pennnylvanla Democrat! Gold Men Protest. IIARRISBURG. Pa,. Sept. 10. The Demo cratic State convention reconvened to-day for the purpose of filling vacancies on the electoral ticket created by the withdrawal, after the Chicago convention, of about one third of the electors selected at the Allen town convention on April 29. There was a good attendance, and the silver men were in complete control. Previous to the as sembling of the convention there were nu merous caucuses and conferences of both elements of the party. The leaders of the gold element, including ex-State Chairman Robert E. Wright, who resigned because he could not support Bryan; State Chairman Given, of the gold Democrats; John R. Reed, collector of the port of Philadelphia, and Samuel Dickson, of Philadelphia, whe was a leading delegate to the Indianapolis ' convention, met and got into shape their protest against what they declared to be the revolutionary proceedings of the silver ites. When the convention wa3 called to order Capt. John B. Keenan, of Westmoreland, who had been agreed upon as temporary and permanent chairman," made a speech in favor of Bryan. On the call of the roll of delegates not more than one-third of the original delegates to the Allentown con vention answered to their names, the sub stitutions in nearly every instance being silver men. The t?mporary organization was made permanent. W. B. Given and George B. Wilson, of Lancaster, were un seated because their sympathies were not with the Chicago piatform and ticket. Sil ver men were seated in their places. Chairman Ritter, of the resolutions com mittee, read the platform, which indorsed Bryan and Sewall and pledged them a "cor dial, united and vigorous support." It also accepted the Chicago piatform "as the ex pression of opinion of the majority of the duly accredited representatives of the De mocracy of the United States upon the is sues involved in the present political can vass." Before the vote was takert on the adoption of the platform delegate James, of North ampton, presented a protest signed by a committee of the gold Democrats, headed by State Chairman Wright. Mr. James had scarcely started on his introductory speech before the delegates manifested their im patience by shouts and cries of "Sit down!" The chairman and ;--veral delegates urged that Mr. James be given fair play, saying he could not influence votes by his argu ment. Finally, when the speaker got a hear ing, he called attention to the fact that three months ago, at Allentown, the Demo crats in convention adopted resolutions de claring for the gold standard, and now the tiame delegates proposed to change about and indorse a tree-silver candidate on a free-silver piatform. He got no further. Hisses, groans and a most unruly uproar drowned his voice. Mr. James continued to speak, but not a word he uttered could be heard. For about five minutes the uproar lasted. Mr. James did not read the protest, but filed it with the secretary. Tne pro test says: "To the reconvened Democratic State convention of Pennslyvania: On behalf of those we represent we enter our earnest protest against the action of this body accomplished and proposed. We speak for those members of the Allentown convention constituting a large proportion of that body who refuse to surrender Democratic prin ciples or to accept the substituted heresies of Populism. We deny the right of this convention to change a line of the body of "Democratic doctrine, unanimously pro claimed at Allentown by the authorized convention of our party. We especially protest against your substitution of the so called Chicago platform for the Allentown declaration of principles. "We conceive the declarations of the Chicago convention to be unpatriotic, vi cious and undemocratic. On all the press ing questions of the hour they violate Dem ocratic doctrine, subvert Democratic pre cedent, falsify Democratic history and trample on Democratic purposes and aims. For one hundred years, under the teachings of Jefferson, Jackson, Benton, Tilderr and Cleveland, our party has maintained an unbroken front in the battle for ' sound money, correct financial principles and the sanctity and inviolability of the private and public obligations. "We denounce the action of the Chicago convention in refusing to indorse the wise, Vure and patriotic administration of Grover Cleveland. "In relieving the people from oppressive tariff laws, in purifying the civil service, in maintaining untarnished its financial . credit, he has served his country and brought honor upon his party. In refusing to recognize and appiaud these public serv ices of a Democratic President the con vention but discredited itself and honored him by contrast. If disregarding our pro-- 1 test and the rights of the Democracy of Pennsylvania this convention insists upon engrafting these undemocratic doctrines in your platform, we reluctantly, but unalter ably, declare that we cannot follow it in this dishonoring and disastrous venture." After the- platform was adopted Mr. Snowden, of Allentown, offered a resolution to depose William F. Harrity as national committeeman and authorize Chairman Jones to fill the vacancy. Mr. Donnelly, of Philadelphia, moved to lay the resolution on the table. The motion prevailed amid great excitement 171 to 167. A motion to give the Populists four electors and fuse with them was carried. D. C. Dewitt and Jerome T. Hllman were named by acclamation for Congressmen at large. The vacancies in the electoral ticket were filled as follows: At large, Thomas Sterrett and Louis M. Ireland (Populists), Thomas G. Delehanty (Democrat). The convention then adjourned. lMO LA HO 11 SCORNED. Much of the llrynn Literature la Printed by "Hntn." CHICAGO. Sept. 10. The Democratic committee is just now trying to explain away the charges that a great deal of the literature that has been scattered broad- cast does not bear the union label on it, while over at the Republican headquarters not a piece has been printed without it. So v careful are they about this that a few ' weeks ago the committee declined to ac cept a contract for literature because "the literature did not have the union label. From time to time reports have reached the Republican national committee head quarters that the literature being issued by the Democrats from Washington was printed at a nonunion office in Alexandria, Va., nine miles south of the capital, and that the printers were paid paupers wages. A definite statement to this effect reached Perry S. Heath the first of this weeli, and he wired the Republican con gressional committee at Washington re questing them to thoroughly investigate the statement, and interview the leaders of the Printers' and Pressmen's Union at the national capital, and report the result. Mr. Heath to-day stated that in his opinion the case could not be much more aggra vating from the point of view of the union men. He received the reply by telegram this morning which is as follows: One of the printers discussing the situation said: "It would be bad enough if the Siiver Knight pleaded poverty or inability to pay good workmen good wages, but on the con trary the paper is in the interests of the biggest and closest corporations in the world, which are just now posing in the interest of the laboring men. It may, per haps, be Just as well for the laboring men of the country to be told what a difference there is between the Silver Knight s theory and its practice. It was some time after this exposure of the grinding policy of the millionaire mine owner who owns the Sil ver Knight that Columbia Union, of Wah- lngton, ordered an investigation to be made at the different political headquarters as to whether the campaign committees were having their printing done at union or non union offices. A committee of one (a Dem ocrat) wis apiwinted for that purpose, and he reported that all work clone by the Re publican congressional committee was done by union labor. While the union was felici tating itself upon this formal recognition of organized labor a man with a Bryan button got up in the meeting and moved the appointment of a committee to Investi gate the charge that the Populist cam paign hand book was being printed in a nonunion office. Investigation proved that this important document was printed and issued In thf ofilce of the Silver Knight at Alexandria, Va. It was also shown that while the paper was edited in Washington, where Senator Stewart had his paiatiai residence, and that the Populist leaders wr formulating all their plans In Mr. Stewart's office, the campaign printing was being done in the Silver Knight's office, in order to evade the payment of union prices. The committee also reported that the scale of wages paid by Stewart for this work was $3 a week, or less than half the scale of wages fixed by the Columbia Union. The committee making this in vestigation was composed entirely of Dem ocrats, and it was on their report that the president of the national organization at Indianapolis Issued an order extending the jurisdiction of Columbia Union over Alex andria, so as to include the office of the Silver Knight, and put the men employed there on a scale of living wages." MAY NOT BE REMOVED. OHlee IIo!derB Who Support Bryan Cannot Pose an Martyr. LOUISVILLE, Sept. 10. -Tha Courier Journal's Washington "correspondent fays: The President is in no mood to go into the manufacture of martyrs, and it is alto gether improbable that the ambition cf Deputy Pension Commissioner Bell and other government officials who are stump ing for the Chicago ticket, to pose as vic tims sacrificed on the iltar of their own convictions, will be gratified. They have been human lightning tods, inviting strokes of presidential wrath for some time past, and spicing their defiance of the White Hcuse by encouraging the publication -f statements that the President would not dare dismiss them for pernicious activity n politics and pay no attention to Controller Eckels, Agricultural Secretary Mor;-n As sistant Secretary Hamlin, of the Treasury Department, and others who have been conspicuously active opposing Bryan i.nd 1G to 1.

DOES HE OAVX THEM? J. II. Maloney Promise- the Votes of Postofflee Clerks to Dryan. LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 10. Twenty-four members of the National Postoffice Clerks' Association, en route to the national con vention, to be held at Denver, shook hands with Mr. Bryan to-day and James H. Ma loney, secretary of the Civil Service Board and superintendent of the registry depart ment at Springfield, Mass., promised Mr. Bryan the support of. that organization in a neat speech. Shortly after noon to-day J. H. Hartley, the postmaster in this city, received a tele gram from the members of the association asking him to have Mr. Bryan at the depot at 3:45. The ' nominee was cheered by the postal clerks aboard the train. Mr. Bryan said: "I am very glad to meet you. gentle men. I only received notice of your coming a few moments ago, but I am glad to greet you as representatives of an occupation which requires so high an order of intelli gence and so large a degree of fidelity. I meet you in an entirely unpartisan man ner, and accept your kind words in the spirit in which they were tendered." (Ap plause.) Mr. Bryan was billed to address a meet ing of the local Democracy at a flag-pole raising this evening, but on account of the inclemency of the weather the meeting was postponed. HILL STILL A DEMOCRAT. He Object- to Being Bound, Gassed and Thrown Into the Bryan Camp. ALBANY, N. Y., Sept. 10. The attempt to bind Senator Hill hand and foot and throw him into the Bryan camp has re ceived a set-back. Yesterday the Demo cratic primary in the Third Assembly dis trict selected Senator Hill as one of the delegates to the State convention. A silver resolution was adopted and the delegates were instructed to vote for the indorse ment of the Chicago platform and ticket. Of the twelve delegates elected in the county, seven, including Senator Hill, were considered as gold men, but the entire delegation was instructed to support Bryan and Sewall. This morning Senator Hill telegraphed as follows to Norton Chase, chairman of the Albany county Democrat ic convention: "I observe in the morning papers that I have been elected delegate from the Third Albany district to tne State conven tion, under instructions to vote for the in dorsement of the Chicago platform and candidate. This action is taken In opposi tion to my wishes and my judgment as ex pressed to you yesterdav. ami 1 decline to accept the election on the conditions im posed, or on any conditions which would restrict my freedom at Buffalo to act in such manner as I consider best for the in terest of my party." A dispatch from PoughkeeDsie says: Chairman Hinkley, of the Democratic State committee, when asked this evening re garding published statements that he would retire from the chairmanship because he and Senator Hill had endeavored to swing the impending State convention to the sup port of Palmer and Buckner instead of Bryan and Sewall, said that he had not been engaged in any such undertaking, and he knew that Senator Hill had not. Mr. Hinkley said that his friends had known of his disposition to get out for a long time, and that he should do so at the next State convention. He declared that he would also resign as chairman of the county com mittee here. He has received a request from Chairman Jones, of the national com mittee, to meet him in New York before the meeting of the Buffalo convention, and he will go to New York for this purpose this week. "VVatxon in Kim sua. . ERIE, Ii n., Sept. 10. About 2.000 people, mcstly farmers, greeted Populist Watson when he began his speech here to-day. The speaker said that the work begun six years ago had not yet beei) accomplished; instead, the situation was worse. The South and the West then, he said, made a written contract to agitate the tax ques tion, and he asked that the West fulfill its contract and stand by the South. The time for the death of the Populist party had not arrived, he said, and continued: "For God's sake do not desert the People's party now, when the great work has just begun." As to his nomination lor Vice President, Mr. Watson said, among other things: "I am not seeking to be taken on the Demo cratic ticket; I am no political bepgftr,' nor Is my party. The Democrats and Populists ought to unite. The ticket ought to be the St. Louis ticket. Bryan, the Democrat,, and Watson, the Populist; ain't that right? I say that's no surrender: it Is a fair com promise. Turn me down and you lose Texas. Tennessee and Kentucky. "To elect Bryan the People's party nominee for Vice President must stay on the ticket, and I say Watson is going to stay." Colorado 4RepnbHean." DENVER, Col., Sept. 10.

MIERS WORSTED AGAIN FOR THE FOURTH TIME HARDY "DOES IP" HIS OPPO.VEXT. Joint Debate Between Candidates for Congrretks Progress of tb5 Cam paign in Indiana. To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal: WASHINGTON, Ind., Sept. 10. The fourth of the series of debates between Hardy and Miers, the Republican and Dem ocratic candidates for Congress, attracted a large audience here to-day. This being the home of Congressman Hardy, his neighbors turned out in great numbers, and out of the four thousand people present he clear ly had the majority with him and received an ovation. The speeches were said by those who have followed the debates the best yet delivered, but both of the speakers were considerably out of voice. Any fair minded man must admit that Mr. Hardy used his opponent up badly, and the Dem ocrats are much depressed. Motsinger, the Populist, was denied the right to enter the debate by the Democrats, as he was at other points, but he spoke at the close and advanced the middle-of-the-road policy. The debate Friday will be at Vincennes. Mr. Roots Pleases Republicans. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. MUNCIE, Ind..' Sept. 10. A great Repub lican meeting occurred last night at the courthouse. The speaker was Hon. Francis T. Roots, candidate for joint Senator for Fayette and Wayne counties. From the time the speaker began his address to the close the big audience gave close atten tion. The speaker presented a new feature, the money part of his argument being il lustrated by means of a blackboard and coin chart, enabling his audience to see and fix in their own minds the correct ideas and figures. He said the coinage issue, as presented by the Popocrats, is to avoid the real Issue, after three years' practice of a ruinous tariff policy. He has in his posses sion an old pine-tree shilling, bearing the date of 1652 and a dollar of 1795, coined under the first coinage act of 1792. and different sizes of coin-silver discs, which he used to show the relative sizes of the silver dollar at different ra tios, showing what size the silver dollar must be at 32 to 1 to be an honest dollar. After the meeting the McKinley Prosperity Club, under whose auspices the address was delivered, passed a resolution of thanks to Mr. Roots. The Campaign in Boone. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. LEBANON, Ind., Sept.- 10. Capt. John Worrell spoke at Mechanlcsburg Tuesday night and at Hazelrlgg last night. At both places he had large audiences. At Hazel rlgg many were turned away from the hall,, unable to gain admittance. Mr. Worrell's addresses were wholly argumentative and of a character to appeal successfully to the common sense of his listeners. S. R. Art man addressed a large crowd at the Brush schoolhouse, in Sugar Creek township, last night. A number of free silverites had been induced to attend the meeting upon the promise that they would be given an opportunity to ask questions. At the con clusion of Mr. Artman's speech, which was two hours in length, not a free sllverite present plucked up courage enough to ask a single question. The work of organizing young men's Mc Kinley clubs goes steadily on. A club has been formed at Millegeville with fifty mem bers; one at Marion Center with seventy five, and. one at Advance. Hanly in Clinton County. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. FRANKFORT. Ind., Sept. 10. The Hon. Frank Hanly, the Representative of this dis trict in the Fifty-fourth Congress, was greeted with the largest and most enthusi astic political meetings of the campaign. The Bryanites had billed the county for a big rally at this place on Saturday, with Governor Matthews in the afternoon and Hon..S,. M. Ralstda at. night as the speak ers. They were badly disappointed at the failure of the faithful to rally, and when the Immense crowd which attended the Hanly meeting last night took possession of the streets for their parade, the effect on the opposition was disheartening. Mr. Han ly made the best speech ever delivered in this city, and, with a few more like it, Clinton county will not have the reputation of being the banner free-silver county of the State. Mr. Joyce at Carthage. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. CARTHAGE, Ind., Sept. .10. John Joyce addressed an audience here last night that filled every available inch of space in New som's Hall. Mr. Joyce Is a recent convert from Democracy. He is an attorney of Rushville. The local McKinley glea clubc acquitted itself with great credit. A Mc Kinley club of 120 was formed, and the number can readily be doubled. The Demo-Populists have made no demonstra tion thus far save that Dr. Robinson, Popu list candidate for Congress, made a brief speech a month or more ago to a handful of the faithful. "o Longer a Democrat. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. DECATUR, Ind., Sept. 10. Garret Ber ling, of this city, one of the largest and most extensive produce dealers in northern Indiana, has renounced Democracy and the Chicago platform. In an interview Mr. Berling would not say who he would vote for, but it is generally understood that he will vote for McKinley and a gold stand ard. Although a German by birth, he has amassed a fortune here by his shrewd bus iness qualifications, and is deeply inter ested in the money question. He has been a stanch Democrat ail his life. McDongal at Rising Sun. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. RISING SUN, Ind., Sept. 10. Hon. Thos. C. McDougall, of Cincinnati, spoke here last night to a large and attentive audi ence. He discussed the issues of the cam paign in an able manner, and had the closest attention. His speech is considered one of the best yet delivered here. Declares for Hemenway. To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal: The Weekly News of this place, here tofore an independent paper, came out in its issue of yesterday for James H. Hem enway. the Republican candidate for Con gress in the First district. The News made a strong fight against Hemenway two years ago, and it is Confidently believed that its unqualified support for him now will add material strength to the entire Republican ticket. SYLVESTER THOMPSON. Petersburg, Ind., Sept. 10. Campaign X'otes. L. S. Baldwin, candidate for prosecutor, addressed a large Republican meeting at Clarksville Wednesday night. Charles E. Boston, of late years a leading Prohibitionist of Madison county, and the candidate of that party for Congress against Messrs. Henry and Bynum in 1892, has taken the stump for McKinley and sound money. i "What the Bryanites Offer. To the Editor of the Indianapolis Journal: I, observe that Mr. Bryan is perfectly confident of his election. He is confident also, when 'addressing Eastern audiences, that the free coinage of silver will bring up the price of an ounce of silver to ex actly $1.2929, no more and no less that is to par. It is conceded by all, I believe, that if the Populists whoop silver up a little too strongly, and get it up to say $1 30 or $1.35 silver will disappear, as it has always done in our past history when undervalued In the' coinage. But in his Eastern speeches Bryan promises that it will stay at $1.2929 all over the world as soon as it is admitted to free coinage in the United States at 16 to 1. A more ab surd and contemptible assumption never was made, and the man who believes it is monumental In his folly. If the election of Bryan will bring sliver to par, and if his election is now foreshadowed as he claims, why does not the promised blessing mani fest itself in the silver bullion market In some slight degree at least? Silver has been falling ever since the Bryan pilgrim ages began, and Is to-day quoted at C5 cents an ounce. The silver dollar is worth 51.04 cents, or would be but for the promise of the government to keep it at par with gold. Mr. Bryan does not keep up the sorry pretense of keeping silver at par under free coinage when he fares his corti-r-eers in the woolly West. Here It Is all cheap money. And this is the entertainment to which the American people are invited. A silver basis, a currency for the future as fluctu ating and uncertain as the winds, except that it is morally certain to continue its fall to yet lower depths. What kind of a financial, what kind of a business future does this silver scheme promise us? We might, after years of panic and disaster, adapt ourselves in some sort to the new and debased currency if it were stable. But who could build a. firm financial or business structure on the shifting sands? Who could safely venture on any business when the very measure of the value of his property is shrinking from day to day? Yet that is the kind of a future to which the Populists who nave possession of the old Democratic ship are going and trying to drag us. Is it any wonder that the Popocrat machine here and elsewhere Is going to pieces? This daily object lesson, this steady fall in bullion value of the dol lar Is working with mighty force for Mc Kinley and the people's cause. Pendleton, Ind.. Sept. 9. J. B. LEWIS. PITCHFORK IN CHURCH ONE USED BY NORTHWEST INDIANA - 31. E. CONFERENCE YESTERDAY. Nasty Case from the Valparaiso Dis trictReports of Presiding Elders Presented. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. TERRE HAUTE, Ind., Sept lO.-The Northwest Indiana Conference had to use a pitchforh this morning, but it was a quick movement that disposed of a presid ing elder, and the public, which, up to this time, had not heard of the case, is none the wiser from what was said in confer ence. Two months ago Elder Wilson, of the Valparaiso district, sent his resigna tion to the bishop on the ground of bad health, and it was accepted. This much was disclosed by a br.ef statement of Bishop Andrews this morning when the re port from the Valparaiso district was in order. Samuel Beck was appointed to suc ceed Wilson, and at the conclusion of a brief report in regard to the churches in the district, he moved that the resignation of Wilson be received and that his name be entered on record as "withdrawn from the church under complaint." Rev. A. A. Gee, of South Bend, wanted a committee appointed to make report on the ?ase to morrow, and the venerable Dr. Smith, of Valparaiso, the oldest minister in the con ference, wanted the case disposed of with out discussion. He knew the facts, he said, and there would be nothing wrong in tak ing this summary action. His idea pre vailed. The charge is -"immorality." but no one will tell what he did. One minister was asked if it was "a woman case," and he replied that it was "worse than that; too awful to repeat." Bishop Bowman, who was present, pre sided part of the time at the morning ses sion, which was wholly taken up with the reading of reports by ministers of their year's work, with the exception of the ten minutes when the conference had use for the pitchfork. Presiding Elder Buckles, of the Lafayette district, reported there had been one thou sand conversions in the district during the year. The rafns and floods had caused so much loss in the wheat and oats crops that collections had not been up to expecta tions. The aggregate for missions was $3,500. He spoke of -two new churches, one at Lafayette to cost $35,000, and one at Williamsport costing $8,000. Presiding Elder Ogden, of the South Bend district, reported sixty-three churches and twenty-four parsonages; that the con gregations and pastors were "well housed." There was some increase over last year's collections of $6,081, and In addition all salaries have been paid. The average salary is $850. and the highest in the dis trict $2,200. There were one thousand con versions and eight hundred accessions to the church. He spoke particularly of the hospital at South Bend. Presiding Elder Wood, of the Green castle district, reported forty men under regular appointment, including thirty-four pastors in charge and two professors in DePauw. The report showed new churches springing up in various parts of the dis trict and there has been a marked degree of success in meeting the expenses of the new churches. There was no decrease in the collections, and every charge will "hold its rank in class first for the fourth successive year." The past year was one of the best years in the history of DePauw University. The zeal of the professors and the discipline and deportment of the stu dents, and the economy and carefulness in administration and the care of the endow ment are all deserving of mention. There never was a time when the university so much needed the support of every Metho dist minister to aid the trustees to pilot through the Interim between the time when the $100,000 was given by Mr. DePauvfor current expenses was exhausted and the time when they will realize fully the total gifts from the DePauw estate. Rev. Allen Lewis, of Valparaiso, on be half of the committee on education, moved the appointment of a committt-- of five to nominate trustees for Del'tuw T niversity to fill existing vacancies. ii L Kindlg. Rev. Shoemaker. W. H. Wise. S. B. Town and B. F. Switzer were appointed. Dr. Sa lem Town, of South Bend, reported for the beard of examiners that forty undergrad uates and fifteen candidates for admission had been examined. The committee sub mitted the following resolution: "Resolved. That certificates of the char acter prescribed in the Discipline from any of the educational institutions of the M. E. Church, accredited by the university sen ate, shall be admissable. in lieu of our own examinations, so far as said certificates ccver the course of study." Dr. Town stated that twenty-seven of the total fifty-three candidates examined had received exemption on one and one-half subjects out of a total of six subjects. This was under a ruling of the last General Con ference, which gave such privilege to the conferences. The report of the committee was adopted. On motion of Dr. Gobin the committee was ordered to prepare a plan for the extension of such credits. Rev. Hilton, of the Indiana Conference, representing the Children's Home Society, addressed the conference. Rev. Thompson, secretary of the American Sunday League, also addressed the conference. The anniversary of the conference Ep worth League first occupied the confer ence at the afternoon session. Rev. H. M. Campbell, of Thorntown. presided and in troduced Rev. W . D. Wilcox, pastor of Trinity Church, Lafayette, who delivered the address for the occasion. A meeting for the association of preach ers' wives, widows and daughters was held at 3 o'clock. Mrs. A. C. McKinzey, of Bra zil, was made chairman and Mrs. L. S. Buckles, of Colfax, secretary. The follow ing committee was appointed to formulate a constitution and by-laws: Mrs. L. C. Buckles. Mrs. A. H. Delong. Mrs. John L. Smith, Mrs. Charles L. Harper and Mrs. A. C. McKinzey. At the church extension anniversary to night Dr. W. A.

Gentlemen We own no bank stock, be long to no trust, have Jjo go'ernment bonds, have little or no gold reserve, and possess few, if any, shares in railroad, maunfac turiitg or mining companies. All we have Is our families, our country, our labor and skill with which to earn a living and se cure a home for ourselves and dependents, for which, honestly given, we want hon est pay, promptly awarded, value received for value given, full and complete remu neration for services rendered, work per formed or value disposed of. Now, we'd rather not receive promises for this. Good promises answer if we can do no better. Good promises will be redeemed perhaps. The best may be never redeemed; some are not. But pay needs no redeeming. With that no possible contingency can de prive us of our compensation, with which wo can go where we please and secure what we want upon the best terms attain able. The political party that will secure this for ourselves and guarantee it to our children, the coming generations, we should support. We have a right to demand this, or our government and fellow-citizens, our law makers and law administrators. Now, we do not desire to be overexact ing. We are willing to work on trust six days, or even one month, to give our em ployers time to turn; but when the six days or one month expire we ask no de lay and need no "orders" or "trade." We want pay honest pay, full pay; cash up and no grumbling; then we can purchase what we desire wnere we please. This Is most pleasant ana profitable lor all; en genders good will; tenus to prosperity and happiness for all. And we want, and are justly entitled to. the best, the very best, money the world affords. Honest labor is entitled to the best that which will se cure the most in our purchasing, is the least destructable. most generally desired and subject to the least fluctuation in value; insuring against discounts and shavings; so simple in its manipulation it needs no expert to explain, and of so uni versal use there will be no money changers in our market places. Are these not the desires' of us all? Can we be, should we be, satlslied with less if this is possible? It appears to me there can be no differ ence of opinion among us upon this point. In this "land of the free and home of the brave" this matter is left largely in our hands to determine and regulate through our votes. There are two methods of money management asking our vote government control and unrestricted free dom in coinage of money at our expense for other persons' Jenelit. Which should receive our vote? Palmer Vs. Ilryan. New York Evening Post. How can any Democrat of intelligence and character hesitate for a moment be tween these two representatives of all that Is best and worthy in their party and Bryan and Watson or Bryan and Sewall? Bryan Is a harum-scarum young man of thirty six who has been in several professions, making no mark in any, and leaving be hind him in all no ImDresslon of either strong ability or steadfast character. He is something of a lawyer, a little of a jour nalist and more of a politician than either. His speeches leave no doubt in any trained mind that he is only a half-educated man. He is worse than untried, for he has been tried and found wanting. He is going about the country pouring forth at everv railway station silly and Ignorant talk about finance, currency, government, syn dicates, railways, bankers and property owners. All that, is stable in the country,' all that has tended to its development as a civilized state, he denounces and prom ises as President to overturn and destroy. His associate on the ticket who will be most generally sunported with him Is Tom Watson, a roaring ignorant dema gogue who is totally unlit for any public office, and whose nomination would have been possible in no national convention ex cept one which represented the discontent and ignorance of the land. That any self respecting Democrat should under any con ditions persuade himself that he could vote for such a party ticket as this, when a really admirable one is in the field for his support, passes comprehension. Tln-I'Iate Worker Meet. BUFFALO, N. Y., Sept. 10. About twenty manufacturers of tinware and tinp'ate have been in session at the Iroquois Hotel for two days. They refused to say what they are conferring about, and they left Buffalo to-night with the secret locked in their breasts. The casket trimmers, who were meeting last night and to-day, failed to reorganize their association. They "say another meet ing will be called. I'uJilUnt Wlllium Ilend. SYRACUSE. N. Y., Sept. 10.
