Sound Money Campaign Opened
in Philadelphia
The Ex-Senator Makes a Very Masterly
Action or Non-Action of the Last Congress
Referred to—Words of Thomas
Jefferson Quoted
{ Associated Press Special Wire.
| ing gun of the sound money campaign in
, the east was tired tonight at nn ethusi
j astic public meeting in the Academy of
i music. The affair was under tho mana
| gem net of a group of the better known
financial and business men of the
! country.
I Geoigo li. Roberts, president of the
Pennsylvania Railroad company, was
I chairman. Tho principal speakers of the
' evening were ex-Fnited States Senator
I George F. Kdmunds. ex Comptroller of
j the Currnocy Wiliam L. Trenholm, Con-
I gressman Michael I>. Hartcr ol Ohio, «x
--j Minister to Russia Charles Finery Smith
t and .latnes W harton.
In tho beginning Mr. Edmunds said the
Jl sound money cpiestion must, bo decided
by political action, not party action, but
that kind of action the Humans used to
I speak of when no man was for party out
i all for state.
Quoting Thomas Jefferson's words,
1 "the wtiole art of government consists in
the art of being honest," he said: "That
phrase is worthy to bo written in letters
of gold and placed in front of every
public edifice iv evory hamlet on the con
tinent. In a careful report prepared for
the benefit of the First c ingress, Jefferson
said that the question of the difference
between the value ot gold and silvor as
money was purely a commercial question ;
it did not depend on legislation or the
fancy tastes of man, hut on commerce,
which regulates tho price of conimodi
; ties."'
The speaker then discussed the varia
tion in value of two metals.
"If any faith can be put in human ex
perience* he said, "it- ought to leach us
that we cannot make a given amount of
silver worth any more when it is printed
at the mint with the stamp of the United
States than it was hetore.
"When tho act, of was passed to
stop silver coinage, all the principal
countries r>f Europe wero coming to have
a single standard — gold.
"If the* last congress had passed on
March 3d, the last day of its session,
what is now vociterously demanded by
tho free coinage people, every owner and
producer of silver bullion would take his
ounce of silver to the mint, worth 63.40
rents, and get |1. and having
got more than two silver dollars for his
ounce of silver, he would come to tho
workingmen to whom he owes for labor
and say: 'If I bought it in metal, it
would have taken t?n pounds, but I have
taken benetit of the United Slates nfrleei
and had it stamped, and you must take
live pounds of it.
Ex-Controller Trenholm during his re-
I marks declared it would be found that,
I the issue now confronting us *hns become
! serious only because the two political par
| ties have at one time or another and on
{ ono pica and another, courted the HUp
| port of. those who entertained, or affected
jto enter tarn, the idea that the coinage of
; silver dollars is so essential to the welfnre
and happiness of tho people of tho
, United States that all other political
j questions should be subordinated to it.
Congressman Barter followed Mr. Tren
j holm. Mr. Harter argued that an abund-
I ance of money did not always prevent
, commercial and business depression. On
the contrary, he argued, some of our
financial panics had come at a time
when money was abundant. Charles
Finery Smith spoke for tho working
man's interests.

Corbett Meets Mt/slmmons in a New York
NEW YORK. May 28. Thero was not
a free tight at the Col man house last
night, as many of tho sports who hap
pened about there when Corbett and Fits
simmons met in one of the parlors ex
pected. Tbe champion was aggressive in
his manner, but Fit zsi m mon s was very
quiet, his lawyer, F. M. Friend, doing all
tbe talking. Tbe proceedings resulted in
an agreement that Vcndig should name
tbo date and place for a meetitic by July
Ist. Then Fitzsinimons will put up his
88000 forfeit. At one time it looked as if
thero would bo a light. This was when
Corbett leaned over toward FftSSimxnons
and remarked that he had made bluffs
which he had faded to stand by.
"You can't go around tho country say
ing things about me," shouted Corbett.
"You've got into this thing now and you
will have to light."
"Never you fear." retorted Fitzsim
mons,very deliberately, "I'm not a bluffer
and I never was a bluffer. Furthermore,
I have yet to see the human being that
Fm afraid of. I want to say to all these
gentlemen here that [ am ready to tight
at any time or place*"
Mutual friends stepped betewen the
men and they calmed down. It is proba
ble that the representatives ul tho Dallas,
Tex. club will be on band in a few days
to talk to Vendig and tho lighters.

ter were mostly emigrants bound for tbo

ZANRBVILLS, Obio. May 28.—Tha
nomination for governor by the Ohio
state Republican convention of Asa S.
Brjsbntti is generally regarded as a victory
ior the Foraker men over the McKinley
men. The Koraker men were able to con*
j ccntrate on Btishneil and their opponents
! remained divided. Kx-Oovernor Kora

The Republican state convention
' was called to order by Joseph O
Former, chairman of the state com*
miltee. Colonel Homier reviewed
I tho last two state campaigns as
somo length, then introduced Senator
Sherman as temporary chairman, who
spoko in favor of a protective tariff and
against the freo coinage of silver at the
old ratio, nut in favor ol a bimetallic
currency based on international agree
ment in accordance with tho market
values of gold and silver. Following is
his address in full:
Gentlemen of the Convention: T thank
you for the honor you have conferred
upon mo in selecting-|me to preside over
this convention. You have met to desig
nate the next governor of the s*ate of
Ohio, You have a good many candidates
before you. but each one is worthy of the
highest honor you can confer. You have
tho assurance" that whoever you may
nominate will have tho hearty support of
all the candidates and of each* member of
the convention, You have also to select
several of the chief executive officers of
this state, f need not impress upon you
tho importance of selecting those who
will honestly and faithfully perform the
duties assigned them. You have a still
higher duty, to announce tho principles
and.policy of tho Republican party in the
state of Ohio and in tho United States.
What you will say here will have an im
portant influence beyond the limits of
your state, for the intelligent action of
the Republicans of Obio will, as in the
past, indicate the opinions of tbe Repub
licans in all parts ot the United States.
We have a common faith and creed. We
act. together on great matters for dis
ci pi in c. Tho primary and fundamental
sentiments of tb<) Republican party Iff
love for our country, our whole country,
We arc for the Fnion. one and indivisi
ble, now and forever. The Republicans
nf Ohio are not provincial, but national.
This is our corner stone, planted in the
lirst Republican convention in Ohio ill
1865. We stood by il in the storms of the
war, when Lincoln was our standard
bearer. . ... • , '
We are in favor of a protective tariff.
We had such a tariff. While it was in
foico we had pro peri ty, good times and
money in plenty. We had so diversified,
our domestic industries thai. American
labor and American capital suppliec
nearly ali the wants of the American
people. We prefer to tax foreign produc
tion rather than our own. We believe
that the policy of protection should bo
extended to all productions impartially,
to labor on the farm as well as in tbo
workshops. We are opposed to tho Dem
ocratio policy ot protecting woolen man
ufacturers and admitting foreign wool
freo of duty. We denounce a scheme of
taxation which annually increases the
public debt moro than |50,000,000. This
is the result of Democratic ascendancy.
The tariff law of the last congress is part
ly a copy of tho McKinley law and gener
ally a failure. All that is good of it was
