McLean as chairman, and the following members of the different committees: Resolutions, Allen W. Thurman; Credentials, Ulrlch Sloan;Permanent Organization, Frank Harp; National Committee, John R. McLean. Mr. Holden, of the Plain Dealer, was selected as member of the committee to notify presidential nominee. The national committee selected Senator Hill, of New York; as tem- porary chairman, but the convention did not accept the selection, and in- stead it chose Senator Uaniei oi ir- ginia as temporary chairman. In conrt of la9t resort to a political par winn nnon this nnestion Ohio voted ty. The man who refuses to accept - rioi Th. inl and DUI1U va wm.... o double standard was involved in the question and the double standard Not that those voting for it had anything against Senator Hill, tJiov simnlv nreferred a man who was outspoken for silver. Tha nermanent organization of the convention is as follows : Chair man, Stephen M. White, ol Califor nia; Sergeant-at-Arms, John I. Mar tin, of Missouri; Secretary, Thomas J. Cogan. of Cincinnati; assistant secretary, Louis D. Hersheimer, of Chicago. The platform will no doubt be an out-and-out silver declaration and fully democratic upon the mo mentous questions of the day. If the gold standard has made every dollar in the United States as good as gold, as the National Republican platform claims, why does it declare a willingness "to debase our currency" and "impair the credit of our country" upon "international agreement with the leadine' commercial nations of the world?" iwn The many friends of ex-Judge Meekison, of this county, will be pleased to hear of his nomination as the democratic candidate for from this district. The Judge is well and favorably known all over the district, and will put forth every honorable effort to se cure an election. He will stand up on the free silver platform and take his chances along with the balance of the ticket. His popularity in this county was shown when this county voted solid for him for ten consecu tive ballots. Deshler Flat. The Signal, in trying to give phasjs to its position against the gold and silver standard, and to fortify its advocacy of the gold standard, says "neither watered money nor watered milk is good to take."' But the Sig nal has probably, in its hurry to get its "hit" (?) before the people, forgot ten that watered milk is often pre ecribed rts being beneficial. Now, as the people have been taking gold medicine for the past 23 years, pre Bcribed for them by the Republican riartv. and their condition has been gradually growing worse, the Demo cratic party advises to go back to the good old constitutional remedy, the free and unlimited use of both gold and silver. The people are going to change their niedioine this fall, sure. The Signal has been insinuating, in order to deceive the people, that the government haa issued dishonest dollars, and the Northwest asking it to point to one dishonest dollar ev er issued bv our government, thinks it has answerediour question by say ing thaMheQntinental money was dishone's'aa was also the Southern Confederate money. If the Signal thinks the intelligent people will be satisfied with that answer it is mis taken. We repeat, the U. S. never issued dishonest dollars and never will. The Signal, as does its party, wants the government to issue gold money, on gold bonds, or one money and that for the interest of Wall street, so that they may continue their barter and sale at the expense of the common people. The Demo crats take issue upon that and de mand that both gold and silver be the money of this country, on an equal basis. The people want no class money. Gold is the rich man's money, silver that of the common people. Give us both. The Toledo Commercial is certain ly overdoing the slums of politics when it styles those gathered at the Democratic national convention at Chicago this week as anarchists and socialists. Nothing in the proceed ings of the Democratic national con vention warrants such an onslaught, and the only excuse for it is, the Com mercial knows it is fighting for a loos ing cause in advocating a gold stand ard as against the stand taken by the Democrats for the double stand ard, and therefore resorts to filth and dirt as its ohief weapons. And the Commercial should remember that while it is throwing its dirt uiuoh of it strikes hundreds of honest Repub licans who have sided with the Dem ocrats in the fight for the good old constitutional money gold and sil ver, and it goes without saying these Republicans will resent the insult when opportunity affords, which op portunity will present itself at the No yember election. The man who thinks that the Dem ocratic party will not be in the run ning; this year simply shuts his eyes to the signs of the times. ANNOUNCEMENTS.

Senator Oallwger, of New Hampshire, says he is hopeful that McKinley will carry New Eng land. Hopeful Is good. A yATi0Skh coxvkntios is the its edict has nowhere ehie to go but out. Sksor Romero, the Mexican Min ister to the U. S., has been giving his government the resignation bluff. Even Bismarck made that blun once too often. WALL street has cornered tne treasury of this government quite long enough. The treasury of the U. S. should be so solid that the com bination of Wall street or England could not embarrass it. It did not require a cablegram from Madrid to convince our people that Spain doesn't desire to provoKe a war with the U. S. Nations are like individuals; they seldom provoke a fight unless they are reasonably cer tain of winning. Those Republican editors who are blaming the tariff law for the closing of New England cotton mills must have forgotten, if they ever knew, that the cotton schedule of the pres ent tariff law was drawn by Senator Aldrich, of R. I., upon suggestions made by those cotton mill owners, Such is the fact. The schedule was placed in the bill by the Senate as a substitute for the schedule made by the House Ways and Means commit tee. The Chicago convention should take a firm stand in favor or an in come tax. It is the only way to make the wealthy corporations, monopolists and millionaires con tribute something like an equitable share of the expenses of the national government. The income tax is just, and notwithstanding the supreme court, five to four, declared the tax unconstitutional : it is right and should be made to stand in this coun try. The Britishers are now rejoicing ov er the success they have achieved in having the Republican party i i this country come out favorable to the gold standard. Now the Democratic party will declare for the American system of finanace and they will have both the British and the American sympathizers with British finance to nffm. il win ue tt unique iwyqi America will come out victorious. It will be the Americandollaragainst the British dollar. The Republican party flopped this country from the American douDie standard of gold and silver, to the British "existing single standard" of gold alone. It was done under cover, Many of the ablest Republican states men, including the late James G, Blaine, knew nothing of it. It was a fraud upon the people, a crime of (rlcantio nronortions which that B-t archhypocrite and enemy or man kind, John Sherman, engineered with the aid of . Hooper, of Massachusetts What was gained by this, you ask. There has been an increase in every line of production but a decrease in money. The farm er is oompelled to GIVE two bushels of wheat to get a dollar to pay his taxes with, where he used to give one, and the Wall street speculator GETS two bushels of wheat for his dollar where he used to get one. The wheat farmers1 produce is DE CREASED one-half, and the Wall street gold farmer's dollar Is IN CREASED one-half. In the inter ests of the common people silver should be restored. Sure To Win. The people recognize and appreci ate real merit. That is why Hood's Sarsaparilla has the largest sales in the world. Merit in medioine means t.h nower to cure. Hood's Barsapa- rilla cures absolutely, permanently oures. It is the One True Blood run Her. Its sunerior merit is an estab lished fact, and merit wins. Hood's Pills are easy to take, easy to onerate. Cure indigestion. Dead ache. Awarded .iighest Honors World's Fair, CREAM MOST PERFECT MADE. A pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder. Fre from Ammonia. Alum or any other adulterant ' 40 Years the Standard. MM PHOPHETIC Wan the Speech of the Late James O. Blaine on Silver. James G. Blaine. In fntted States Senate lo.l "I believe the struggle now going on in this country and in otber coun tries lor a single gold standard would, if successful, produce widespread disaster in and throughout the com mercial world. The destruction of silver money, and establishing gold as the sole unit of value, must have . rmnnna -ftert on all forma of Dro- perty eicept those Investments winch lelu a nxea return in money. 1 nose would be enormouslv enhanced In value, and would gain a dispropor tionate and unfair advantage over every other species of property. It, as the most reliable statistics affirm, there are nearly $7.00O.0OO,0C0 of coin or bullion in the world, very equally divided between gold and silver, it is mnossible to strike silver out or ex istence as money without result-that ill prove distressing to million na utterly disastrous to tens of thous ands. '1 believe gold and silver coin to be the money of the American people anterior to the constitution, which the great organic law recognized as uite Independent 01 its own exist ence. ISO power was conierrea on Congress to declare either metal should not be money. Congress has, therefore, in my judgment, no power to demonetize either. If, there fore, silver has been demonetized, I am in favor or remonetizing it. If its coinage has been prohibtied, I am in favor of ordering it to be re sumed. I am in favor of having it enlarged." The Mouey Standard of the World. In order to discuss the money ques tion intelligently it is necessary to have an nudei standing of the stand ard in the various countries through out the world. The following list is correct and may be relied upon for clear understanding of the situation: Silver Standard Countries. Boilvia, China, Costa Rica. Ecua- or, tjriiataiuaia, nonuuras, inaia, Persia, Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, tRussia, Salvador, Tripola, Venezuela, United States of couuiuia, Uruguay, Paraguay and England in Asia. Total 20. Gold And Silver Standard Coun tries. Argantine Republic, Belgium, Chili, Cuba, France. Greece, Hayti, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain and Switzerland. Total 13. Gold Standard Countries. Austria-Hungary, Brazil, Denmark, Great Britain and her possessions ex cept in India and Asia, .bgypt, Fin land, Geman Empire, Liberia, Nor way. Portugal, Sweden, xurney, and the United States. Total 13. Gold the nominal standard : Silver practi- eallythe standard. tSilvrthA nnminn.1 standard : nancr the ao tual standard. Gold is only a standard for measurement of paper money. Thus it will be seen that of the 45 countries oil the globe 20have a silver standard alone. 13 a gold standard alone and 12 have a double or bi metallic standard. Republican Papers Admit It. The Toledo Commercial, one of the leading republican papers in Ohio, sees the haudwriting on the wall It realizes the weakness of the Mc Kinley single gold standard platform which was framed at St. Louis and evidently has little hope of McKinley 's election unless the gold standard candidate reprsents the platform up on which he was nominated. The Commercial says: "It is true that the declarations of the platform in which the party is made to appear as an active, aggressive advocate of the final and complete destruction of sil ver as a money metal, made as a concession to the bluff of boss Piatt, does not meet the approval of four fifths of the votes of the country. And we make this prediction, never for a moment disguising the fact that the folly of the Republican conven tion at St. Louis in yielding to the bluff of Boss Piatt has created the most serious dissatisfaction." The man who already has less than nothing cannot be frightened by tales of impending losses. MARKET RCPORTS Grain and Stock Quotations For July A. Maw York.

Willlngham of New YorK, "and one where detection is very improb able, is being worked in New York. It is the returning of lost pocketbooks. The swindler works upon the theory that all men are rascals, and he finds enough who are not honest to make a good living. He eets an assortment of cheap pocketbooks, executes a bogus draft or two in the name of his intended victim, puts in two or three counterfeit bills of large denomination, in serts a card with the name of his victim upon it, then, assuming an honest expres sion, visits the man he has selected as a victim, tells him he has found the pocket book, displaying its contents, and as the man's name was in the book he had hunt ed him up Then he tells a little story of being very poor, and the victim almost in variably gives him $6 or $10 and takes the book and Its content Of course he can say nothing when he finds that he has been swindled. The man who thus returns lost money succeeds In catching several during a day and realizes a good living.
