The New York Reform Club Will
Fight Free Silverites.
TILE SIXTEEN TO ONE IDEA.
What Ia Told at Washington About tho
6prearl of the Silver Sentiment In the
West Wiping Out Old Polit
New YoitK. ADrll 24. An important
crusade against the free coinage of sil
ver will be inaugurated In the metrop
olis at once. A series of editorial ar
ticles will appear regularly In nearly
1,003 newspapers all over the country,
besrinninsr this week, attacking the fal
lacies of the free silver advocates. The
head and center of the metropolitan
movement Is the Reform club, of New
York, which numbers nearly 1,000 of
the most representative men of the
metropolis, and twice as many more
who are scattered all over the union.
The club has been working qui
etly for some months past, but
now that all Indications point to
a presidential campaign next year,
In which the leading issue will be the
free coinage of silver, they feel that an
aggressive crusade is necessary.
Former Secretary Fairchlld, tne presi
dent of the Reform club, is enthusias
tic over the outlook, and when asked
about the matter he said: "We are
greatly interested in tho Memphis
sound money convention, and feel de
cidedly encouraged. We certainly
shall co-operate with that body in ad
vocating correct principles of finance.
The currency question is bound to play
an important part in the coming presi
dential campaign, and the friends of
monometallism cannot enter tho lists
too soon ai-ainst the silver fanaticism
that abounds in many parts of the
country. It is in the west that we
shall have the hardest work, and it is
for this reason that we have organized
our forces to combat false theories of
finance. If this country is to prosper
it must be established on a firm finan
cial footing, and not on the shifting
sands of silver free coinage. Of course,
if we get international bimetallism that
is another thin?."
The Sixteen to One Jilea.
Washington, April 24. Every mem
ber of the administration who has
been west within tho past few weeks
has returned with marvelous stones
about the spread of the 10 to I idea. E.
A. Mosely, secretary of tho interstate
commerce committee, has just come
from a trip extending us far as the
Pacific coast. "I not only did not
meet a man," ho said, "but did not
hear of one, with the single exception
of the editor of the Portland Orejron
ian. who was not an advocate of tho
froa and uulimitsd coinage of
silver at tho ratio of 16 to 1.
It is everywhere manifest, and
absolutely wipes out old political
lines. The reception given to ex-Congressman
Sibley and Gen. A. J. Warner,
at Denver, was significant When Sib-
loy spoke the entiro crowd was with
him; there were neither democrats nor
republicans, but all silver men, who
unanimously approved everything ho
said. There was another thing that
struck me," continued Mr. Moseley.
"In the sleeping car coming out of St.
Louis there were ten gentlemen, and
six of them were reading 'Coins I' man
cial School,' and reading it as if it were
gospel to them. It looks to me as if
much missionary work would have to
be done if the spread of the silver sen
timent is to bo overcome."

ThB Report of the Weather Service Bain-
11 marizea urieny.
TopekA, Kan., April 24. The week
ly weather-crop bulletin of the Kan
sas weather service for the week ended
the 23d savs: The temperature fell be
low the normal during the first days of
the week and light frosts formed over
the state, but the warm days follow
ing have carried the temperature above
the normal and at the close of the
week there was an accumulated excess
of abont 20 degrees. The rainfall,
however, remains deficient, except in
Grant. Treiro. Ness. Elk and the north
eastern counties, though fairly good
rains have fallen In the northern coun
ties. In the eastern division farming op
erations are being vigorously pushed
Corn planting is well along in the cen
tral counties and has begun in the
northern. Corn is coming up as far
north as the Kaw river, while in the
extreme south farmers have begun cul
tivating it The greatest advance,
however, is in the fruit trees and grass:
the orchards are full of bloom and the
prairies are carpeted with green,
Wheat and oata are looking fine,
thoucrh rain is much needed generally.
In the middle division the orchards
are criving fine promiso now; much
corn is golns? in; wheat still improving
some; oats doing well, and gardens
nicely. The sand and dirt storm the
first of the week was probably un
precedented. It did some damage by
blowing away loose dirt A good rain
is greatly needed.
In the western division the severe
wind the first of the week filled the air
with the dry snnd find caused consider
able damage to irrowing crops and
fruit blossoms. Wheat does not yet
give much promise and some fields ure
bemj put into otlier grains, uats,
barley and grass tire making good
headway, and much stock feed is being
put in in tho shape of Kaffir and .leru
salem corn. Fruit here, as elsewhere,
gives abundant promise.

Executive Mansion, Washington,
April 13. I am much gratified by the
exceedingly kind and eoinplimentar
invitation you have tendered me on
behalf of muny citizens ot Chicago to be
their guest at a gathering in the inter

financial doctrine. My attachment to

hope, however, the event will mark
the beginning of an earnest and ag gressive
effort to diHtninate among tho
