WASHINGTON, Oct. lGlh, 180(5. Senator Faulkner calls Senator Quay's absurd claim of 270 electoral votes for McKinley a burlesque and says that Quay knows the battle is lost and being compelled to put out some kind of figures he made tlieni so largo that nobody would believe them. A significant result of the publication of Quay's figures was their immediate effect upon the belting fraternity, the members of which may be counted upon to recognize a bluff when they see it. The most reckless of the gamblers were offering odds of J to 1 on McKinley until Quay's claim was made public. Tliey at or.ee reduced them to 2 to 1 and in some cases the most they will now offer is 7 to 5, and there are reasons for believing that the money to offer these odds comes front Mark Hanna's corruption fund. Senator Gorman returned from New York this week. As usual he re fused to be interviewed, but lie re iterated bis statement that Bryan would carry Maryland. The returns from polls made in nearly all the Congressional districts are sufficiently complete to indicate how the next house will stand, and an estimate, which is regarded by the Democratic Congressional Committee as very conservative, shows that 190 silver Representatives will be elected including Democrats, Populists and Silver Republicans. That will give the silver men control of the house by a comfortable working majority and en sures the early enactment of a law providing for the free coinage of silver. If the estimate be correct and Mr. Bryan be elected, and Democrats liave no doubt of either, as Mr. Bryan has said that if elected he would call an immediate extra session of congress for the express purpose of providing for the free coinage of silver, and the Senate is solid for silver and will re main so. A Washington hotel proprietor has stirred up a regular hornet's uest by inviting all the other hotel proprietors to meet at his place "for the purpose of contributing to the McKinley and Hobart finance committee." Many hotel men have publicly condemned tiiis scheme and announced that they would neither attend the meeting nor contribute, and the following resolu tion, unanimously adopted shows what democrats generally think of it: "Resolved, That the Columbia Demo cratic Club denounces the action of T. E. Roessle, proprietor of the Arling ton Hotel, Washington, 1). C. (who in the past has been the beneficiary of Democratic patronage through Na tional committees and representative Democrats of the various States,) in his personal efforts to tax the hotel men of this city in behalf of the Mc- Kinley and Hobart finance committee, and we earnestly call upon the hotel proprietors of Washington, without regard to their political affiliations, who do not wish to confine their trade to one political party, to repudiate and repel this contemptible effort to array them in such a partisan movement. Resolved, That when hotel men ar rogate to themselves the right to dictate to the people what their political course should be, we reserve and shall exercise—the right to notify the traveling public of our political faith as to whom they should patronize when they visit Washington." Secretary Morton has in a published interview allowed itjto be seen that the administration thinks that " The Republican party is making a great mistake in bragging of strength and not doing more work," and is very much afraid that Bryan is going to be elected. If the Washington Post, gold organ though it be, keeps on increasing the Bryan vote in its estimates it will be conceding his election before the votes arc cast. In its latest table it gives Bryan 205 electoral votes and Mc- Kinley IGS, leaving 77 in doubt. If Mr. Bryan only has to get 19 electoral votes out of these 77, his election can be put down as a reasonable certainty, as the States from which those 77 votes are to come are Illinois, Mary land, Delaware, West Virginia, Min nesota, Michigan and Kentucky. As a rule neither Democrats nor Re publicans think Archbishop Ireland's letter will benefit McKinley. A Kan sas man, now in Washington says: " It is quite possible and very probable that the letter of Archbishop Ireland will prove a boomerang, and cause more loss than gain to McKinley. "Flow to the Line. Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." The temper of a good many of the Western A. P. A. members is such that they are very apt to resent anything of advice from a Catholic source, ami thus the letter of his reverence may he a sort of Burcliard affair for which Gov. Mt'Kiuley will owe liiin no thanks." No matter how much money Han tin's committee gets it wants more> and it has actually had the impudence iu open an ofiice in Washington, and send a circular letter to all government officials, asking them to call to see the agent in charge of that office, and sug gesting that if they do not care to call the agent will call on them at their residences. Yet this is an administra tion elected by Democrats. DP.M. Charles H, Ayer. When any reform movement in gov ernment is inaugurated, there are a few master minds that take the lead. So it was with the tremendous movement now in progress to overthrow the ever increasing tyranny of the money pow er in this country, and none were ear lier at the front than the People's Party candidate for Superior Judge, Charles 11. Ayer. He was horn at Saybrook, Connecticut, and reared on a farm. He bad the benefit of the excellent public schools of that state and also attended the Seabury Insti tute. He took the full course in law at Yale College and graduated from that institution in 1883 and was admit ted to the bar in that state. His health failing him, he did not resume work that year, and in 1884 came to Olym pia. This being the capital, he con sidered it the best place to study local laws. He was an entire stranger and set to work in his profession. By his industry and personal and professional integrity, lie lias become one of the foremost lawyers in the state. In the summer of 1891 he married a daughter of I. C. Ellis, of this city, and his family now consists of his wife and four boys. Born during tho early days of the war, bo inherited the strong Union feeling of those years and has Always been a Republican. Though not an office-seeker lie lias held several im portant offices, always discharging his duties to the satisfaction of the pub lic. In 1894 he was chairman of the Republican County Committee, and under his management this county be came the banner Republican county of the State, every nominee on the Republican ticket being elected. He held the position of chairman of the committee until the action of the Republican national convention re versed its former position on the coin age or silver. He then became active in organizing the silver forces of the State. As tho time for the county convention drew near, the almost unanimous sentiment of the county turned to him as the nominee for Judge, and since the convention the sentiment in favor of his election is gaining an increased strength. His election, besides being a rebuke to the State ring that controlled the Repub lican county convention, would bring to the high ofiice of Superior Judge a lawyer of groat ability and unchal lenged integrity. Well, Well, Tito Kentucky Republicans have swallowed " Ten Dollar" Breckenridge, body and boots, slimy reputation and all, by nominating him for Congress! It seems that to lie formally re ceived into fellowship by the party of pretenses, the party of professed mor ality, the grand old party that pro fessedly saved the Union without any help from Democratic command ers like Grant and Stevens, and Fight ing Jo Hooker and Meade, and a host of others, and of the party that se cured peace without the aid of blood shed by Democratic veterans whose badges of office were their muskets, like Charity "covers a multitude of sins," and though they he as scarlet, reputations may he made white as snow simply by falling down and worshiping the Golden calf. The wrong done to womanhood, to morality, to common decency, in the elevation of a moral lejier to respecta bility, is the crowning act of infamy of the " plutocratic" party. It is said, however, that this nomi nation is not a whit worse than that of the head of the Republican ticket of this State. Here is a theme for discussion l>y the numerous McKinlcy clubs of the sex most interested in the punishment of those who lower the estimate in which the crown jewel of womanhood is held. IT 18 noticeable that McKinley was unusually quiet prior to his nomina tion regarding the alleged dishonesty of the dollar. If the silver dollar is dishonest now, it must have keen dis honest then; and if it was dishonest then why did not the Canton states man call our attention to it? OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, OCT. 30, 1896. Current Coin. At Oakville, in C'hehalis county, the largest meeting of the campaign was held Thursday by the silver forces, notwithstanding a Republican meet ing was held the same night at Cedar -1 ville and two church meetings were in progress in tlie same neighborhood. Hon. J. S. Allen spoke, and his dis course was clear and convincing. The lisboarSci) ippluuvj Iu arPlviii sh'»V»7 the argument left no standing room for goldbug Republicans. Judge Litclicnberg and Judge Win sor addressed a Bryan-Rogers meeting at Sumner, Thursday night. Two hundred people were present, 120 of whom were voters. The audience fairly bubbled over with enthusiasm. An Ellensburg dispatch of the 22d says: The most enthusiastic and by far the largest audience ever assembled to hear a political speech during this campaign greeted the Hon. John R. Rogers and Rev. Clark Davis in the armory hall last night. Fully GOO people were present. Above in the opera house ex-Senator John B. Allen also addressed an audience of not to exceed 350 people. The goldbugs had a band to help enthuse, but even with music the enthusiasm was of the cut and dried order. Hon. Clias. S. Yoorhees is doing ex cellent service for the Silver cause in the State campaign. He speaks with Hon. John P. Fay at Tacoma to night, and if weather will admit an out-door meeting will i>o held, as it is anticipated that no hall in the city will hold the crowd that will assemble. I Mclvin (!. NVinstock, the " talented Hebrew orator" attempted to answer, at Hoqium, a few evenings ago, some of the positions assumed by Hon. James Hamilton Lewis, at a previous meeting. He talked, however, to empty benches. Reports received at. the People's Party headquarters in Seattle, from all parts of the State, show that Mc- Graw's henchmen are attempting to effect a trade, in every county of any and every candidate on the Republi can State or county tickets, to lead a forlorn hope for Sullivan. In some districts they will agree to vote for two candidates on the People's ticket for a 9 ingle vote for Sullivan. This course is by no means conducive to harmony in the g. o. p., but the command has gone forth, "Elect Sullivan at any sacrifice." It is said by an eye-witness of the Republican parade at Seattle, that not more than 1,500 people took part in it, and they were largely " bums" from the slums hired for the occasion. The P.-I. always was a boaster and in this instance it fairly outdoes itself in ex aggeration. Hon. George Turner is announced to speak at Ellensburg to-day, Fair haven Monday, Everett Tuesday, in Klickitat county on the 29th and at Spokane on the 30th. He is doing a splendid service for the People's ticket. The union campaign committee of King county is making extensive prep arations for a great parade and rally at the armory in Seattle, next Monday evening. The speakers will be Hon. John R. Rogers, candidate for Gov ernor; Hon. James Hamilton Lewis, candidate for Congress; Judge I. J. Lichlenbcrg and Frank J. Browne, candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction. They expect to turn out in much greater numbers than the Re publicans did Wednesday night, and indications point toward having a splendid parade. The uuiform Bryan- Rogers club of Tacoma and the Bryan 10 to 1 club will be there. The People's committee at North Yakima have telegraphed to Seattle for 100 torches and are going to have a big parade. Arrangements are being made at all of the other points to make the Turner meeting one of the largest of the campaign. The State People's Party Committee had a list of dates fixed for State Sen ator E. W. Taylor, but have canceled them so that Mr. Taylor can spend his entire time in Pierce county from now until election. ■ 1 ■ » Do Not Scratch Your Ticket, A scratched ticket is a diluted ticket, and a diluted ticket is a weakened ticket. Fusion is legitimate and honorable but the union of two fu sions is confusion and should-be viewed with grave suspicion. A voter may have reasonable objections to some name on the ticket he proposes to vote, but this is, at best, only a per sonal matter and should he subordi nate to public weal. The People's ticket made up during the present eventful campaign represents the un ion or fusion, that is. the melting to gether in a harmonious whole, of a trio or more of great principles repre senting momentous issues of the day and hour to which the American i>eo ple are living. Never was a more vital time in our political history ami the surest way 0 it of darkness into light, from dis order to order and from error to truth, is for a great party to stand together and face the coming contest with a bold front and a determination to win at all liazzarils. The old precept is good wholesome advice just now: " United we stand, divided we fall." The gist of our train of reasoning, doubtless applies to all parties, but it l'lilies in the present instance pur excellence to the People's party and the hosts that are destined to make Mr. Bryan the next President of the United States. The reiteration is then again iter ated, to str.nd together. Do not coun tenance the fusion of two fusions by mutilating your ticket. Let your vote be in every respect an integral effort to lift our standard to its home in the blue of heaven. - • " Ladies' and " Women." The following placard appears prom inently displayed in one of the sliow windows of a cueap-john store of one of the prominent business corners in this city: ! Ladies are invited to call at the : : Women's So mil Money Club ; : Rooms, one door south of Mott- : '. man's, Sixth and Main streets. : Women from the country especi- ; 1 ally invited. I Open every day. 1 " Ladies" of the city and " women" of the country! There is the distinc tion which Snobocracy draws between honest worth and " sassiety" senti mentality. It is evident from the wording of this simple announcement that the snobs of this republic are in rliapport with the " upper crust" of the Old world, who use the term lady as a so cial distinction corresponding to " lord," and to distinguish the Vere de-Vcres from the plain individual who answers to the name of "woman," which means simply the female of the human race, who fills the important place of helpmate to man and per forms the holy offices of wife and mother. It was this spirit that impelled the Oregonian to allude to Mrs. Bryan as the "rustic" wife of the People's Pres idential candidate. A woman who, by the way, is an honor to woman hood, and the peer of the man who wrote the vulgar criticism in intel lectual force. It was this spirit of Snoboerncv that worded the above invitation to the "women from the country." But it is said "Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad," and in this instances the animus was displayed so plainly that none may fail to see it. One woman who lives but a few miles in the country received a cor dial invitation by mail to call on the Woman's Sound Money Club, and complied with the request. She says that she was received with much cor diality by ladies who had been stran gers to her during a prolonged resi dence in the same county and almost the same town ; that she was regaled with many reasous why the women should support "sound" money and "honest" government. She listened with all the complacency that the honors required, and the ladies wero elated with their success iu obtaining a compliant "stool pidgeon." But on her return home her advice to her son was: " Shout for silver, work for silver, and when you vote, let it be the whole People's ticket, with a single X." That is about the extent of the work accomplished by the Ladies' Moneyless Partisan Club, which hold McKinley and Palmer and Sullivan up as models that are worthy of imitation. THE P.-I. artist has undoubtedly lost his situation since the appearance of the half-page illustration of the parade in Seattle last night. Just three men are observable in all that orowd who had enthusiasm enough to wave their hats while cheering. But then the haste with which these "on the 6pot" pictures are made, from the time an X-ray penetrates the darkness to enable objects to impress the sensi tive film in the camera, to the time that nature etches the metal surface is so short from start to finish—only a few houre—that there is an almost irresistible temptation to preparo the plates beforehand, " from the mind," in which case such blunders would be inexcusable. " THE silver is mine, and the gold is mine," saith the Lord of hosts. In these wonderful words pronounced by the Almighty himself, there is no de thronement of the white metal. On the contrary, in the order of mention, it stands first in the original Hebrew as well as in the Greek of the Septua gint and the Latin of the Vulgate. In a word, the clearest bimetallism is the policy of the Bible from beginning to end. Cause of Discontent. The Agricultural Department has issued a circular that will help to ex plain why the farmers are not as happy now as they used to be. It compares the prices of leading farm products year by year, from 18GG to 1895. The prices are given in currency, but wheat reduced to a gold basis the results are sufficiently striking. In spect these Ggures, for instance: Currency. Gold. 1866. 1866. 1805. Cora f .682 $ .484 t .253 Wheat 2196 1.558 .509 Outs 504 .357 .199 Kve 1.182 .St .41 Farley 1.009 .716 .337 Buckwheat 972 .69 452 Potatoes ... .68 .482 .266 Tobacco (|ier lb) . .139 .098 .072 Hay (per ton) 14.58 10.317 8.35 It thus appears that the farmer in 18GG got more than three times as much in gold for his wheat as he is getting now, and about twice as much for almost every thing else. But if he had a mortgage on his farm it was reckoned in currency, and one bushel of wheat would clear off nearly $2.20 of it, instead of about 50 cents, as it will now. A thousand bushels of wheat at taat time would pay off' the whole of a mortgage of SI,OOO and leave $1,196 for expenses. The same crop now would allow the farmer $509 for expenses and nothing for the mort gage, or SBO for interest and $129 for the farm and family, leaving the debt as large as ever. In 18GG a mail without money could buy a farm in the west on credit and pay for it with the proceeds of one crop. In 1896 the same man might receive the same farm, without in cumbrance, as a gift, and be bankrupt in a year. But Mr. Cockran sees nothing in the discontent of the west ern farmer except a desire to cheat liis laborers. A Rape of the Records. In some of the backwoods districts in early days we have read of the Post master carrying his whole ofliee in his hat, but it remained for the evolution of these latter days to find a Governor who to accommodate political exigen cies could put the otlicc of the State accountant into his overcoat pocket and carry it to a political rendezvous in a neighboring city to enable zinco types to be made of the public records in the hopes of injuring a political opponent. Presuming that Sir. Rogers had used a railroad pass, as had the Executive and many of the Republi can State officers, the State records were abstracted from the office of the State Auditor and carried to Seattle to enable the P.-I. to make an etching of Legislature voucher No. 1<53, and show that the State had paid the mile age of Mr. Rogers to and from the State capital at the beginning and close of the last session of the Legisla ture. Had Mogul McGraw have ap plied to that gentleman he would un doubtedly have admitted that this item was paid by the State, and have rendered unnecessary the illegal act of the Executive to make that showing, for no other purpose than that to mislead the people and attempt to show that a charge had been made for a service that had been a gratuity from the railroad company. After this unwarranted use of authority the charge falls on the bare showing that the " pass" was not used for the ser vice named in the voucher, and this fact places the Executive in the unfor tunate plight of the boy who whistled in school, without the boy's justi tion that " I didn't go to do it. The whistle just slid out itself." The "Official" Ward. The Fifth ward is well represented on both of the tickets at the coming election: On the Republican ticket by the Secretary of State, State Printer, Commissioner of Public Lands, one member of the Legislature, County School Superintendent, County Clerk, Surveyor and Coroner. On the Peo ple's Party ticket, the Superior Judge, Sheriff, Auditor, Attorney, School Su perintendent and Justice of the Peace. The ward contains a few State offi cials also—the Secretary of State, State Printer, two Judges of the Supreme Court, State Land Commissioner, Su perintendent of Public Instruction and the Tenas Governor. Of Federal offi cers, the Register of U. S. Land Office, Surveyor General and a IT. S. Commis sioner; the Mayor of the city, the Chairman of the Jack Republican State Central Committee, " The Offi cial Family," and last but not least the local Mark Hanna of the g. o. p. The balance of the able bod ied voters are principally ex-officials or employes in the public offices. |[Prior to the meeting of the different political conventions it was stated that at least 90 per cent, of those in the ward eligible to hold office were candi dates. This assertion is borne out by the number of successful candidates. The Fifth is strictly in it, and we chal lenge any ward or precinct in fhe State to make a better showing in this j line. THE BANKERS' THREAT. Wall Street May "Evoke Conditions No Congress lias Ever Dared to Disregard." The signs ure multiplying that the money power has resolved, if necessary, to force another panic, with the purpose of defeating the movement for free coin age. One indication of this is the re cont refusal of a New York trust com pany to make loans on Alabama state warrants, on the ground that the Unit ed Stat'-s senutors from that state, Mor gan anrt Pngh, were making speeches against the gold standard; another is the visible inclination oil the part of banks to contract their credits; a third is the tone of the New York press, nota bly of The Herald, which in a standing article predicts disaster if the silver agitation is continued, and a fourth is the following combined 'warning and threat embodied in a circular sent broad cast by Henry Clews & Co., Wall street bankers and brokers: The Ganger from popular prejudice and Ig norance in connection with this silver agita tion Ih, however, something more than a con ceivable evil possibility. It is a threatened actuality. It is up for immediate decision, and at this moment no one can feel absolutely cer tain that this worst curse of a nation may not bo brought to a conclusion within a compara tive few months. Wall stri-ct is not In any de greo insensible to this crisis. It sees it and measures it iu all its length and breadth, but it is calm and self pussi sued. It refuses to be lieve that, when thu struggle comes to a final ity, the American people will boWiund capable of a deliberate act of national suicide. It can understand that any danger may reach an acuter stage than it now presents; it is quite prepared for the possibility that managing politicians may go farther than they yet dared lu the way of sacrificing sound money policy In order to secure votes fur thciy candidates; it is uwnro that startling results may come out of either party conventions. It would hardily bo surprised should thu silverites be able to block sound money legislation in the next congress. All these things may bo classed among the possibilities of the next few months. But Wall street is not gravely dismayod at this outlook. It has learned to believe that there are greater potencies than party platforms, than legislative subserviency to popular igno rance, than the madness of a partisan infatua tion. They know that there are situations and events which can instantly coerce and convert the most reckless legislators Into the willing servants of u conservative sentiment that rep resents the real Interests and safety of tho na tion. It will not be necessary to wait for any after effects of silver legislation to remedy its mischiefs, although that would be a perfeotly safe course. The near prospoots of the au thorization of free coinage—a counting of heuds showing a certainty of a two-thirds vote in tho house and senate for 16 to I—would evoke iu Wall Btreet tho kind of conditions that no congress has ever yet dared to disre gard, and tho cause of free coinage would be overthrown ut the moment when its success seemed most certain. It is this reserve power on which Wall streot is now reposing. It is therefore not likely to be seriously surprised bjr any outoomes between now and the No vember eloctions. Its confluence In tho final safety of our money Bystem Is unshaken. It can as little bellevo that the nation would finally consent to the destruction of its money system as that it would burn its crops or de spoil its accumulated wealth. It is not at all Impossible, however, that Wall street may wit ness some exciting scenes between now and next November. Politicians are not usually adverse to "a turn In stocks," and great po litical excitements may bo easily turned to speculative account. It therefore by no means follows that the pre-election months must be Without speculative interests. Instead of frightening, the threats to intensify the prevailing monetary strin gency of the silver sentiment increases— will simply moke the people more deter mined to dethrone gold. It is known that the panic of 1893 was caused by the bankers, and if the latter shall pre cipitate another now the masses will reason that the corporations possess and are unscrupulous in .the use of a power so vast and dangerous that it must be crushed if industrial independence and political liberty are to survive. And they will then turn in and crush it. They will restore silver, because, with bimetallism re-established, it will be im practicable for the banks and specula tors to repeat the performance of 1893. And if, after the silver victory has been won at the polls; Wall street shall essay what Clews outlines, the criminal laws will be invoked to punish the conspira tors. Assuming the election of a prosil ver president and congress, Wall street, unless it does it before, will hardly at tempt to create a money famine. If it should, the new congress, which could easily bo convened early in the follow ing March, would not hesitate to promptly relieve the famine by the isrrae of silver certificates based on bullion, by Issues of new legal tenders, and by free coinage, but it would at once forfeit the charter of every national bank which had taken part in the conspiracy. The talk of forcing a panic before or after the election makes the issue conspicu ous. It is whether the country is to be ruled by the people in popular interest, or whether it is to be ruled by the bankers, bondholders, speculators, in terest gathorers and annuitants in the interest of clasa —Dubuque Telegraph. Mot a Sectional Matter. This contest is not between the peo ple of tho west and south and those of the east There will bo no marshaling of armies nor will the blood of kindred bo shod in a mighty struggle, while the money power in its safo retreat forges new fetters for the limbs of all alike as it forged them 30 years ago. The con test is between tho whole people in the east, tho west, the north and tho south and the few who in the cruel selfishness of wealth would make tho happy citi zens of a free republic) the helots of a crushing oligarchy, born without a fu ture, toiling without a hope und dying as die the weeds by the roadside in the brown autumn. Tho interests of all the peoplo are tho same wherever their homes may be situated. At present, unhappily, tho people of many of the eastern states do not know how thoroughly they aro serving the purposes of the monster of greed, and at the approaching election u majority of them will vote in favor of wearing a chain stronger and more degrading than any made of steel. History must repeat itself. From out of the west, this time in harmony with tho south, another wave must coma Having remedied one evil, tho work must be completed by tho remedying of those other and gross er evils fastened on tho Union by the money power, and when the wave has swept over tho laud und the rule of the people is restored, the redeemed voters of the east will marvel again at the blindness which now fills their eyes.— Denver News. ♦ VOTE 'er straight.
