AT IISIX
One of the most remarkable poMfteal
earn patens In American history will doss
tomorrow. The issues km been clearly
presented by the party platform and by
party leaders, aad every voter should re
view them impartially before ha easts his
rote,
Ths Republican party stands today, as
It has always stood in ths past, for prac
tical bi-metaiiism. for a sufficient volume
of money, aad ttainft any ccutractiaa of
the currency. It stands for the existing
bi-metalhc system of ths United States,
which keeps in circulation ss muCh silver
money ss gold, and makes thstar purchas
ing power equal. It to agalnat any theo
retical M-metallism that means mono
metallism in feet. It to against any sys
tem ef currency which would redoes ths
circulating medium of the United States
by driving one-third of ths money out of
circulation.
The organisation which Mr. Bryan rep
resents stands for a theoretical bi-metal
lism which would be silver mono-metal
11sm in face It stands for a contraction of
the currency by the srithdrawal of 900,-
60',000 in gold from circulation and the re
duction of the remaining silver and paper
money to ths actual bullion value of an
equal number of silver dollars. There is
not a gold coin in circulation in any coun
try in the world whose mints are open to
the free coinage of silver, and there would
not be a gold com in circulation in the
United Suues a day after the passage of
a free coinage bill by congress. Not only
would this contraction of the currency be
the logical and necessary result of free
coinage, *s proveu by all history and ex
perience, but it is the object and intent
of the free silver movement ro drive goid
out of circulation in to create an
artificial demand for sliver to take its
t>laee. The silver producers who stand
behind the movement are willing to bring
about this contraction with its attending
disasters in order to increase the market
for their product.
The Republican party to further In favor
of the payment of debts in the same kind
of money borrowed, lu position to that
privsts and public obligations, contracted
on a gold basis and given under a cur
rency system based upon a solemn govern
mental pledge to make and keep every
dollar in circulation as good as a gold dol
lay, should be paid in gold or its equiva
lent.
Mr. Bryan's party to in favor of repu
diating the government's pledge to main
tain a parity between its different kinds
of money, and of paying debts contracted
on a gold basis in free coinage silver,
whatever it may be worth; but no apostle
of free silver has yet appeared to show
why payment in free coinage silver, of a
debt contracted on a gold basis, would be
less dishonest than to pay the debt in gold
and then steal the difference between the
value of the gold and silver.
On oJier que*tiaz.s of public polioy than
finance tie differences between ths two
parties ars equally radical and Important.
Tee Republican par;/ has always been In
favor of the prcservat.on of the Union,
axtd the enlorcen»,*nt of Federal laws
throughout Use United States. In pursu
ance of the?* principles It crushed out se
cession and rebellion In the civil war.
and the bstter classes of men in the South
have accepted the settlement of this ques
t.vn as OnaL
Mr. Bryan ar.d his followers, his advis
ers an 1 political associates, represent
stats rights as against ths Union. They
object to Federal Interference in state af
fairs. however necessary the intervention
of Federal authority may be to carry on
the functions of government, to protect
government property, and t<y enforce
United States laws. The people of one of
ths silver siaica have even suggested se
cession in case their demands in r.gard
to free stiver are not granted, and Jeffer
son Davis did no ttors towards fostering
the spirit of sectionalism and class antag
on.otn which culminated in the Rebellion
of IS6I than Bryan and his associates have
»ione to create a similar sentiment in this
campaign.
Mr. Bryan and his party represent the
ory and experiment. There Is no prece
dent, in hwtory or experience, for any
cla;rn they make as to ths results of what
they propose to do. The leadership of ths
party is mads up of the discontented, the
inexperienced, the imfSoknt, the hysten.
cai, the i:np:acti-al from every walk of
life. Out ot this heterogeneous m.i*s of
incompetent humanity Mr. Bryan pro
p ns to bu ld up a tfw party whose wis
dom shall ths earth, and inau
gurate a kir.d of millennium in American
politics.
T. e RepaTScaa parry, on the contrary,

CAHAL.
In BO project now occupyiag the atten
tion ef the American people Is the state
of Washington more deeply oonoerned
than la the Nicaragua csnal. and no mem
ber of congress has been more closely
identified with that great work than Mr.
Doollttle. He has bent all his great energy
to Its promotion, and by his efforts it has
been Jbrought nearer consummation than
sver. When the history of this undertak
ing comes to bs written it will be seen
that the work done on its behalf In the
Fifty-fourth congress has been of special
Importance and that Congressman Doolittle
is entitled to a lion's share of the credit.
Mr. Doollttle's signal services in this
connection deserve recognition at the
hands of the voters of this state. It will,
indeed, place the state in an ambiguous
position to refuse to re-elect the champion
of the canaL To a man the voters of
Washington favor the line of action for
which Congressman Doolittle has so stren-
uously labored, and If they decline to re
elect him they place it In the power of
the opponents of the canal to say that the
congressman did not have the sympathy
of his constituency In his efforts.
Mr. Doolittle has been in every respect
a diligent and capable representative ef
his state. He did excellent work In con
nection with the appropriations, and those
who have had occasion to ask his atten
tion to public matters have always found
him prompt, courteous, attentive and ef
ficient. But it is not for this reason that
his defeat would be specially deplorable.
Washington cannot afford to refuse to
avail herself of the services of a man who
Is so closely identified with the He
understands the project. He Is In close
touch with those by whose efforts it will
be pushed to completion. He is known all
over the nation as one of Its most active
champions in congress. For a state which
has so much to expect from the construc
tion of the canal as Washington to refuse
to return such a man to congress to com
plete the work he has so satisfactorily
begun, would be poor policy Indeed. A
matter of this kind, touching as It does
every material interest of the state, rises
above party politic*. To strengthen the
hands of a representative who has devoted
so much well directed effort to Its pro
motion becomes a matter ot state loyalty.
SAMPLE COERCION.
The entire Popullstic press has been
wailing for some weeks about the manner
in which the workingmen of the country
were being "coerced" In this campaign.
They could not disguise the fact that the
workingmen were everywhere announc
ing themselves against a policy which
proposes to cut wages in two. and the co
ercion cry was resorted to as a feefols at
tempt to explain an existing condition,
which could no longer be dented.
From the time the coercion cry was
raised, the Populists have been challenged
to the proof of the existence of
any such organised intimidation of voters
as they had charged, but with the whole
L nited States as a field for inquiry, not a
single Instance had been discovered until
Friday, when, according to the Populistic
evening paper, Seattle furnished the first
frightful example. A small boy, so it was
alleged, with glowing headlines, the lib
eral use of capital letters and snorted
by alleged affidavits, had been discharged
for participating la a Populistic parads.
Frantic appeals were ma Je to workingmen
to show their disapproval of this high
handed attempt to stifle the voice of to
bor, in the approved Populistic style.
The small boy in question, accompanied
by his nearest male relative, voluntarily
came to the Post-Intelligencer office and
explained the matter. liis employer bad
reproved him somewhat sharply for talk
ing too much while at work, and in a fit
of boyish pique he left and failed to go
ba -k to work. He happened to tell his
story in the presence of a notorious ward
hetler, a stranger to him. who took him
down town and paid him two dollars to
s'gm a paper? the oontents of which wers
unknown to him. The boy's uncle and
employer corroborated the story, the for
mer being especially Indignant at the man
ner in which the boy had been cajoled Into
a moral perjury.
The whole incident simply Illustrates the
desperate straits to which the Populists
have be*n forced to find any kicd of tes
timony with which to bolster up the loose
charges which they have freely made. It
also throws a side light on the character
of the man who has control of the ma
chinery of the fusionis-.s. ani who will be
the political boes of the town should the
Populists succeed in elect.ng their ticket.
Unfortunately, there is no statutory law
to cover the offer.se which this disreputa
ble wa_-3-heeier committed. As the false
affl iavit which he bribed the boy to sign
*** not Intended io be used in any legal
prooerdlnga. the hiring of the boy to on
knowlngiy swear falsely difj not amount
tn law to subornation of perjury. It was
th ;s oe> «a offense against good morals,
characteristic of the man sad of the party
in which he is the particular bright and
sh.aing Lght.

eoßecttble loan in the etata. There will
be few renewals, and such as are made
wd be at ruinous rates of interest.
This im che great danger which the rotors
of the state of Washington can avert. Our
four votes la the electoral college will
probably net settle the carnage question;
but tbe people can make or nar their
credit for years to come by putting the
Populism la oontrol of the state for a sin

The Republican candidate (or the re
sponsible position of municipal Judge is
W. V. Rlnehaii Jr. He was born on the
Pacific coast, and has resided In Seattle
for thirteen years. Having grown to man
hood la this community, he is well known
and has always borne a high reputation
for honesty, manliness and ability. He
has met with success as a practitioner at
the ban and possesses the qualifications
necessary tor a proper and satisfactory
discharge of the duties of the poeition to
which he aspiree. He will make an hon
est. upright, impartial judicial officer, and
the people will make no mistake when
they vote for him.
The Republican demonstration at Ta
coma was another grand success, and fur
nished abundant proof that Pierce county
will make a good showing on Tuesday.
Party enthusiasm in aQ parts of the state
never ran higher than at the present
time, and It presages a splendid Repub
lican victory.
Ex-President Harrison said in his New
Tork speech that the prospect of Republi-
can success never did disturb business,
and the truth of the statement is exempli
fied hi the sound and heaithy condition of
the markets since it became reasonably
certain that McKinley would be the next
president.
The voter has but a comparatively few
hours left in which to decide whether this
state shall be run according to plain busi-
ness ideas or whether it shall be turned
over to Populists. Honest, sober-thinking
men who have Interests at stake can never
ohoose the latter alternative.
"Hie people are not going to vote for a
man who believe® times can be made bet
ter by increasing the coet of living, and
that is one reason why Mr. Bryan will fail
of election.
If Washington goes Republican, which
now seems probable, it will be the most
fortunate happening that has ever been
recorded in the history of the states
Many questions have arisen as to how
the ballot should be marked. The beet
way to mark ft is to put a cross opposite

Sultan Journal: In the name of ell that
is fair canot somebody d-sclare in favor
of McKinley without belag branded as
being a robber ot the poor and an enemy
of the la&oring man?
Aberdeen Bulletin: Are any of the men
who are talking free silver and free every
thing to you legitimate working men, or
are any nominees on the Popocratlc ticket
employers of labor or producers In any
shape?
Takima Republic: All this rot shout
Yakima county going Popocratlc by 260
majority, or The Republic is away off in
sheets of that class, is very nauseating.
This county will go Republican by a small
majortly, of The Republic Is away off In

Sultan Journal: Wallace people made
great preparations to receive Judge Held
and expected a great speech when he
came, but the whispering of two little
girls seemed to disturb him. and before
he had gone far with his speaking he quit
and refused to finish.
Aberdeen Recorder: It may be true that
the American people are burning with de
sire to go to see that warm friend of for
eign tabor, William J. Bryan, but we
doubt it. However, If it Is true that those
who wish to go to see him cannot, for
lack of money, they may, for that state
of affairs, thank Mr. Bryan himself and
his fellow free traders who helped to pass
the Industry-destroying, wage-reducing

COAST PAPERS.
San Francisco Chronicle: Collections
are difficult. Of course they are. People
don't pay up wnen they are promised
panics by presidential candidates.
Oregon Statesman: It is said that SH.-
000,000 will be sent to this country eo pay
for the wheat which we are about to ship
abroad. This is making gold bugs of our
farmers by the tens and scores of thou
sands.
Tjos Angeles Times: Mr. Bryan flatters
himself that he Is oat of the "enemy's
country," forgetting that he has only
jumped from the frying pan tnto the fire:
that Is to say. Jumped right into the Jaws
of the "Wolverines," who won't iea*a
enough of him on November t to cast a
shadow.
San Francisco Post: The fiends of Wall
street are at it again, like Jerry Crunch
er's wife. They have raised the price of
wheat so that the farmer may make some
money, merely to "influence voters." And
McKinley stems to be as had as any of
them. He la talking in favor of a pro
tective tariff that will give American
workingmen a day's pay for a day's work,
"merely to Influencs voters,"

Rousing herself ilks a strong man after

And shaking her Invincible locks.
Metb nks 1 see her aa an eagle mewing

And kindling her ondaaaled eves at the

Purging and unsealing her long-abused

At the fountain Itself of heavenly ra

While the whole noise of timorous and

With those also that love the twilight,

And tn their envious gabble would arog
