history. Last year it reached the enormous
sum of $1,800,000,000. Exports being
about Jl,250,000,000 and import!
about 600,000,000 for the year. Augusl
was the largest raomtv ever known Ir
our export trade. Imports are constantly
decreasing, while exports a?
increasing; In other words, Ave are buyins
lew and- seling1 more, thereby making
our country richer every day. Import*
this year will not exceed' $620,000,000,
showing a decrease of $150,000,0Q<
over last year.
Cotton and provision exports have increased.
Lost year we exported 800,
000,000 pounds of ham; as against 665,

680,000,000 pounds at lard against 5GS,000,000
pounds in 1897. Exports oi
cheese have increase** about $8,000,000
The export of cattle over import* showi
a gain of 30.000 head. Our export o;
corn was 300,000.000 bushers in 1398, at
against 177,000,000 in 1897.

$200,000,000 of 3 per cent bonds have been

r Bryan and other Democratic leaders de.
clflrpd that the nrice of wheat would
i follow the price of silver; that there
t was some mysterious connection bej
tween the price of silver and other
commodities; that If the price of silver
was low the price of all other products
. as a result would be cheap. This was '
argued everywhere on the stump and
* In the press, by the Democratic party. 1
Within the last two years wheat has
. sold for a long time at $1 per bushel, !
, and the price of nearly all farm pro- 1
. ducts has advanced, while the price of
J sliver has remained about the same.
Not one of the prophecies and predlc*>
tions of disaster made by the Democratic
party that would follow the election
of a Republican president on a

The Silver Q,nration. 01
whila the- Democrats of some states re- "
pudiate free sliver, it is only fair to state w
that at the four congressional conven- ic
tions held In West Virginia tor the pur- J;c,
poee of nominating Democratic condJ- aJ
ilaies for Congress, each convention dedared
in favor of the Chicago platform, m
therefore for the free and unlimited a,
coinage of silver, free trade as well as u
the attack on the supreme court. This b<
declaration obliges some discussion of x
the sliver question, trite as it is. Out- ]a
side of its money value at the ratio of 16 4S
to 1. the silver dollar commercially Is A
only worth half as much as gold; there-, tli
fore it is not as valuable ami sa/e a gi
metal out of which to make money as 1)
(told Is. In our country silver derives of
half its value from Its money us** and ot
the pledge of the government fhat all
of .otir money shall be equal to gold.
Gold is 'just as valuable without the s(
stamp of the government as with It. If {
gold coin should be melted by fire it
would be worth Just as mueli and would 01
! ? much a? before. if silver w
coin should be melted it would have m
only half the value It had before as a*
money, because Its money use would be nI
destroyed and become elmply a com mo- ai
dlty worth Just what it would be selling1 1,1
for in the market. This shows conclu- J"
lively that gold, if it can be had. sh"Uld !"
be used as money,because It U morevaJ- 2!
uable and safer, and no Iocs can come

all over the world, and there
can be no just complaint that there Is
not n sufficient amount for money purpose?.
The American people, the mer- ltl
chant, the farmer, the mechanic, the J1
banker, the lawyer, the wage-earner. In- J<
deed all the people are entitled to the aj
best and safest money in the world. The ul
political party rhat denies the people the "

silver equal to gold, li carr not make 50 01

This Is simpiy Impossible, and the ex- fr
perlenceof mankind ha* proved it in al! ai
ages. The reason for this la too obvious
to need argument.
In declaring and Insisting .>n' the gold i
standard an the measure of value, th" j i
Republican party does not turn >ts back , r
on th? use of silver as money; Far from i \
J:! It favors rhe largest possible in? of I '
silver. The only limitation the Republl- I can
party would put upon itn its. as
money would be that it should not gn

results and achievements on sea and
land and the triumphs of soldiers and
sailors are too great to be obscured by
charges of mismanagement and neglect.
The conduct of the war had no
partisan bias whatever; soldiers were
enlisted and ofltcers appointed without
any reference to or even knowledge
of their political beliefs. The war
wastfought by Americana; Democrats
and Republicans stood shoulder to
shoulder in defense of the flag, hand
in hand they gathered glory for our
common country. The deeds and bravery
of our soldiers and sailors have
bccome the common property of the
nation, and the people are justly proud
of their valor and heroism. Charges
of mismanagement and mgleet not only
casts discredit upon the country, but
a cloud over our wonderful success.
Hut the testimony of srand old Joe
Wheeler. Fltzhugh Lee and others, now
being taken before the commission appointed
by the President, is fast settling
the charges of mismanagement
and neglect, showing that In most cases
they were without foundation, and in
others greatly exaggerated. But if
there were mistakes this does not argue
nor does it follow that the Republican
party should be turned out of power
and the Democratic party put in. Complaints
of mismanagement and mistakes
furnish no good reason why the country
should abandon sound money nnd
ndopt the free coinage of sliver, give
up protection for free trade, prosperity
for depression, and go back to the carnival
of business ruin that followed the
Wilson bill. The wise thing: to do is to
rorrect the mistakes, If any were made,
but hold on to all the good things a
Republican administration has brought
us and continue it in power.
UpiBltioflhcWnr with Spain.
Lasting a little over 100 days, mo
mentous results have followed the war.
We are more than ever one people; the
bitterness, passion and prejudice, fruits
of our civil war, have passed away.
The solid south, so long used for party
purposes both north and south, has
passed away in the hot flame of war.
Scrtionalism Is dead, and the dark
rtoud* of discontent that followed it so
long are in the de??p bosom of the ocean
burled. We have no south, no north.
Dnly one flag, one country, one interest
and one destiny. The soldiers of the
south are the soldiers of the whole
country; the Union claims them as Its
jvvn, and crowns them with honors (or
glorious deeds on sea and land. Our
fluff Is more loved at home and more
respected abroad; henceforth It will
stand for something; in all the seas and
all the ports of the world. Th** sun
never sets on our possessions, nor ceases
to shine on the flair floating In fhe

The war has changed for all time (he

couDitry out of the Isolation and seclusion
of a century and made it an important
factor In the world's affairs.
It has quickcned <he pace of western
civilization one hundred years iti it*

fTlie war has* placed upon the nation

people of these Islands; {hey nrt* not responsible

It belongs to the Anglo-Saxon to rule
and govern. I believe our constitution

r>f ail peoples. I have full confidence In
the ability of the American people to
meet all emergencies and overcome all
difficulties that may arise In governing
distant islands, whether civilized or
barbarous. Surely It will be better for
the people of thoe Islands to come under
the protection nnd fostering care of
mr government and the benetlclal Influences
of American civilization. The
