Senator Stewart Knows only sIlver and I Demonetized. PAN FiANorico, Nov. 17.-Senator Stew art, of Nevada, who ii in this city. way asked by a repotter how he would stand or the subject of tariff reform in the Unitei States senate. "The tariff," said the sena tor, "is a matter of emaIl consequenee coe pared with financial questions. I'm fol fice silver, and, as to the tariff. I stand where Lincoln stood as to slavery when hi wrote that if the union could be preserved without destrtwing slavery be was for pre serving the union that way, but if the union could not be saved without the abolition of slavery, then he was an abolitionist." "nBut suppose a tariff teform proposition comes atp independently altogether of sil ver. How will you vote?" "On the merits of the proposition," re plied the senator. "lint for or against protection?" "As you are aware," continued the sena tor, impressively, "wo havo only half as much coin in reserve to-day as we had eighteen years ago. Then we possessed $3ii,500,000, now we have but $3,700(000, all gold. The banks have discarded silver as a basis, and silver is reduced to the position of credit money. Everybody ought to know that the business of the world must hear some relation to credit and reservy, and here we see it standing like a pyramid upended, the anex' esting oa that little pedestal of gold. What is the consequence? Things keep going from bad to worse; prices have fallen 40 per cent in eighteen years, and are still on the down grade. Eve y man who is not a lender wakes no each day poorer than when he went to bwd." "But what is your attitude on the tarinf?" "Tariff legitlation, even if wholesome in teelf," replied Senator Stewart promptly, "is not adequate to relieve the state of things I have described. Until this silver question is settled, and it never will be nn til it is settled right, no party can remain in power more than four years. They will give the people some wrong explanation of what ails them, and when it is afforded the opportunity to try its cure it will be found to be useless. Until the country shall have a plentiful suoply of money these things cannot mend." "Will you vote to remove the McKinley duties?" "Sir," said the senator, "I shall be a high tariff man, or a low tariff man, or a free trade man, according as my position may affect silvet. All other questions sink into insignificance beside the money question. I shall use my vote under all circumstances toward securing free coinage." "That is to say you are, as to the tariff, seriously on the fence." "Well," answered Mr. Stewart, "I'd hardly like to put it that way. But," he added, "on the fence is good American lan guace after all and expresses my position exactly. I'm for silver first, last and all the time, you understand." ASSAULTING HIGH HEAVEN.

King, in speaking of the project at the citizens' mass meeting, said: "There are a great many interesting minor details connected with the work, but speaking in a general way, the first steps to be taken will be to send two professional aeronauts up in a balloon to a height of one or two miles.
