Editors: Since our last Pres idential election there has been Btich rad ical changes in the political and moneta ry situation in this country that a new Democratic platform and new candi dates are necessary to success in the next election. What we want is a uui ted party, which is. impossible with Bryan and free silver. The production of gold ahd silver in the world in 1896 was $415,000,000 at their coinage value, while the produc tion of gold alone in 1897 will be $400, 000,000. The coinage of gold and silver in the United States in 16S6 was $61,000, 000; in 1S96 $70,000,000, and in 1899. 140,000,000. The stock of gold in this country to-day is $1,000,000,000, almost equal lo the combined stocks of gold and silver in 1896. While there has been such a wonderful increase in the stock and coinage of gold, there has "been a more decided increase in the coinage of silver in the last four years, as we have coined $92,000,000, against 32,000,000 for the preceding lour yoars. The per capita circulation of mdncy in the United States is now greater than ever before in the history of this country. These fij,vi*r?-'?.' taken from the Uuited States Treasurer's report, ought certain ly to eliminate the silver question from our new platform and make Bryan un available as its champion. Surely there are other issues upon which our party can unite. The Mc Kinley tariff is a grievous burden, with many discriminations against the people in favor of large interests and corpora tions, fostering the gigantic trusts, which not only dictate the price of all raw ma terials in the hands of the producer, but fix the price of the finished goods to the consumer. To such an extent have the profits of these trusts grown that it takes to-day two bushels of wheat to buy the same goods that could have been pur chased for one bushel in 1896. This is but a sample of the tax that the tariff en ables the trust to levy upon the farmers and the people, and to perpetuate these taxes they seek to control the judiciary and legislative departments of our Gov ernments. The very foundations of our Republic are threatened by imperialism, which, if unchecked, will change the keystone of the Declaration of Independence, "that all governments derive their just powers from the consent ot the governed," into the unwritten law of the king that "might makes right." To right this and other wrongs the party ought to make a platform upon which all true Democrats can unite. I am a farmer, and voted cheerfully for Uryan at the last election and expect to vote for the next nominee of the Dem ocratic party, but think with many oth ers in my county who voted the same way that we want a new platlorm and a new standard-bearer. 15.

SHERIFF BAKER INTERVIEWED. [From the Wheeling News, Dec. 20 ] Sheriff Eugene Baker, of Jefferson county, was in the city last evening, ac companied by three of his deputies, hav ing come up from Moundsville, where he had landed three prisoners in the pen, to see the sights in the metropolis of the state. Jefferson county is the home of William L. Wilson, the great tariff re former and there live some of the real Virginia aristocrats so common in earlier days. Sheriff Baker is a typical south erner but lie-impresses one as being more of a West Virginian than a southerner. Tall and well built, straight as an arrow despite his weight of probably 55 years, he has an air of strength and gentleness combined that is characteristic of the true West Virginian. He has been often honored by the democrats of Jefferson county, and it is no wonder, for he is an easy talker and a man who would make friends without the least exertion. A News reporter met him at the Stamm house last evening and talked on many sobjects of interest to the people down that way. Jefferson county,' said Sheriff Baker "is one of the best democratic counties of the state. Last year it gave its old time majority of 1500 and the future will slio\v increases instead of decreases. The prosperity of which we hear so much through the republican newspapers has not reached us yet. Our people are large growers of grain and wj raise large numbers of sheep for the wool. The wheat crop of the county is the source of wealth. Last fall we had splendid crops but the price is so low that most of the farmers are still holding on to their crops expecting better prices. Theslieep shear ing season is approaching but there is not much encouragement in that for the price of wool is way down. On these two im prosperity ras not struck us. The people are waiting to wclcome it whenever it does coine." 'WVe arc one of the few conn ties in the *t<ite tlrat cannot boast of a new railroad to be built within the next year. We have progressive people who are ready to wel come any public improvement and our county has just as many possibilites as other c unities of the state, >'et we have not heard of any new railroads to be built through the county." 44 What do you Eastern Virginia people think of John T. McG raw's contest against Senator Scott's claim?' asked the reporter. ? 44 My dear sir, we do not call it John McGraw's contest down our way. We call it a contest of the sovereign people of the state against boss rule We do not feel that Col. MeGraw is contesting Mr. Scott,s right to a place in the United States senate for any selfish reasons of his own bat he is working for the good of the state." 44 Well, do you think the protest will do any f^ood?" 44No; it is certain that Mr. Scott will retain his seat. We feel this for we know that with the republican party 'might is right.' However, the protest will show the feeling of the people and it will have its effect in time to come."
