'"For the firqt timo sinco 18(58,
if ever before, there is presented
to tho American peoplo tlnB year
a clear and direct issuo aH to our
monetary systom, of vast import
anco in its effects, and upon tho
right sottlemont of which reBts
largely tho financial honor and
prosperity of tho country. It is
proposed by ouo wing of the De
mocratic party and its allies, tho
People's and Silvor parties, to in
augurato tho fro and unlimited
coinage of silver by independent
action on tho part of tho United
States at a ratio of sixteen ounces
of silvor to ono ounce of gold.
Tho mere declaration of this pur-
poso is a menace lo our lniuneial
and industrial intciests, and has
already created universal alarm.
It involves great peril to tho credit
and business of tho country a
peril so grave that conservative
men everywhere are breaking
away from tlioir ola party associ
ations aud uniting with other
patriotic citizens in emphatic pro
test against tho platform of tho
Democratic National Convention
as an assault upon tho faith and
honor of tho Government and tho
welfare of the people. Wo havo
had fow questions in tho lifotimo
of tho Eopublio more serious than
the ono which is thus presented."
Tho letter points out that "froo
Bilver would not moan that silver
dollars wore to bo freely had with
out cost of labor. It would mean
tho free use of mints of tho United
States for tho fow who aro owners
of silver bullion." Mr. McKiuloy
WHAT IT MEANS.
" Tho meaning of tho coinage
plank adopted at Chicago is that
any ono may tako a quantity of
silvor bullion now worth 63 couts
to tho mints of tho United States,
have it coiuod at tho oxponso of
tho Government aud receivo for it
a silvor dollar which shall bo legal
tender for tho payment of all
debts, public and private. Tho
owner of tho bullion would got
tho silver dollar. It belongs to
him and nobody elso. Other peo
ple would got it only by their la
bor, the products of their land or
something of value. Tho bullion
ownor, on tho basis of present
valneB, would receive tho silver
dollar for 53 cents' worth of silvor,
and other peoplo would bo requir
ed to receive it as a full dollar in
tho payment of dehts. The Gov
ernment would got nothing from
tho transaction. It would bear tho
expense of coining tho silver and
tho community would suffer loss
by its ubo.

At half-past 8 this morning
Officer Kaapuni shot and fatally
wounded J. Q. Paxeco, a Portu
guese milk vendor who lives in
Puuoa valley near Mrs. Long's
place. The shooting was dono in
self dofoneo, and tho following aro
tho particulars of tho affair as
learned from tho polico.
Kaapuni is a police officer who
is specially delegated to look after
estrays and tako all such to tho
public pound. In tho purbuunco
of his duty tliis morning he pick
ed up a cow belonging to Paxeco
on tho Pauoa valloy road aud was
ontho way to tho pound with tho
animal when ho was met by
Paxeco and a friend, both nnder
the influonco of ljquor. Paxeco
had been delivering milk io his
customers and had evidently
stoppetl on tho road and taken
moro wine than waB good for him.
Paxeco demanded of tho officer
what ho was doing with the cott
aud the answer was that he was
taking it to tho pound. Paxeco
protested and the officer said if bo
would pay tho 50 cents feo
duo for impounding that ho
would lot tho 'animal go.
Paxeco said ho would pay it ns
soon as ho got home and they all
proceeded to Iub milk ranch. Ox
the way Paxeco and his friend in
dulged in voluble tulk in Portu
guese which tho officer did not
understand, and several other
Portuguese mado thoir appoar
ance. Suddenly Paxeco attacked
the officor with a henvy whip
which ho had been carrying in
his hand. Tho other Portuguese
joined in and Kaapuni was being;
very roughly handled. He fiually.
drow his pistol and fired at Paxeco,
who was beating him with tho
whip all through tho molco. Tho
shot took offoct in Paxcco's right
breast and ho dropped to the
ground. Tho rest of the Portu
guoso thon fled.
Kaapuni notitiod tho Marshal's
office by telephone of tho affair
and OJlicer Fevroira, Dr. Emerson
and others woro dispatched to tho
scone. Paxeco was examined by
tho physician and tho bullet was
found to havo entered close to the
right nipple, passed through tho
right lung and imbodod itself in
tho muscles of tho back. Thoro
was an outiru absonco of external
bleeding and Dr. Emeison at once
pronounced the wound mortal, as
tho man was bleeding internally.
Ho refused to bo taken to the
hospital, preferring to go to his
home uoar by.
Tho wouudod man beurs a
bad repute tion and has been a
sourco of much trouble to tho
polico sinco his arrival in tho
islands from tho Azores. Officer
Forroira, who knows his record,
says ho deserted a wifo in St. Mi
chaols to come to those islands
with his former servant girl with
whom ho had bocomo' infatuated
and with whom ho has boon living
here. Ho went to work on a Hilo
plantation and while thoro stabbed
a luna. Ho waB tried, conviotod
aud Bontonccd to fivo years im
prisonment, his term expiring
about throo years ago. Ho has
had constant troublo with tho
poundmaster and his assistants
ovor his stock sinco ho wont into
tho dairy buBinoss, it being; claim
ed that half tho timo his stock
was pastured on tho publio high
ways. He has been regarded as a.
dangerous man by tho polico and
tho opinion is freely oxpreseeu that
Kaapuni did tho right thing in.
protoctiug himself as ho did,
A later account of tho affair
makes it appoar that Kaapuni was
accompanied by his helpor, Pu-
