True enough and the Rowcvelt administration has the money to pay its bills and a large surplus in the treasury.

"The Democratic party pledges itself to the maintenance of the exist ing monetary standard." Such is the first sentence of the money plank which it is proposed by the dominant or Parker forces shall be adopted as a part of the na tional platform of 1904. It can not be adopted without a bitter and per haps sensational struggle in the committee on resolutions and in the convention itself, with William Jennings Bryan and Senator Bailey, of Texas, the rival gladiators in the arena. Now that the nomination of Judge Parker, of New York, for presi dent is no longer in doubt, all opposition to him worthy of serious atten tion having disappeared, and now that the choice of former Senator Turn er, of Washington, for vice president is so strongly probable as to be well nigh a certainty, interest in the proceedings of the convention, which is to hold its first meeting tomorrow, is c mfined largely to the combat be tween the radicals and the conservatives over the chief bone of conten tion between them. Though the "war of words may fiercely rage, it is certain that the conservatives have control of the convention by about 700 votes out of 1,000. They are determined to drop free silver as they have already dropped its foremost advocate. The brily question in their minds is as to the language which they shall employ in writing upon the pages of cur rent history the momentous fact that the Democratic party has turned from its pursuit of the will-o'-the-wisp of a silver standard and has at last planted its feet again upon the rock of gold. The following is the plank favored by the Parker leaders, and which will be placed in the hands of the chairman of the committee on resolu tions as a declaration satisfactory to the candidate and his friends, and to serve as the basis of the committee s action: "The Democratic party pledges itself to the maintenance of the ex isting monetary standard, which has been rendered adequate to the needs of our expanding trade by the addi-tion to the existing stock of money metals within the last eight years of a supply of gold alone of. more than $2,000,000,000 from which 'enlarged stock of the United States have been able to obtain $700,000,000, thereby doubling the supply of standard money, raising their circulation per capita from $25 to $30, and contribut ing to the great development of industrial activity which would not otherwise have been obtained." It will be noticed that this plank really consists of two parts. The first is a declaration of policy or intention, and is contained in the opening sentence : "The Democratic party pledges itself to the maintenance of the ex isting monetary standard." The second part, or all that follows, is merely explanatory, a point ing out of changed conditions and their causes, a sort of excuse for the new attitude now to h- tak-n by the party. Some of the Parker leaders favor dropping all the explanation and reducing the money plank to the first vthirten words. Their argument is that if the Democratic party is to win the confi dence of the country it must frankly and squarely offer its pledge to main tain the existing standard. There must be no loophole of omission or of vague phrase which would enable the Republicans to charge that the Demo crats might upset the present standard, or permit it to be jeopardized, if they came into power. Such pledge they would offer in the opening phrase, and that they would make stronger by omitting all thereafter all the apology for the attitude of the party in the" past and all explanation of why it has changed. A majority of the party managers fear a declaration so bold and sim ple would seriously offend many Democrats whofought under the banner of Bryanism and who are not yet sufficiently cured to enable them to stand a strong dose of the gold standard. Hence they propose to add the softening explanation. This notion of asserting, either plainly or by im plication, that the party was rightwhen it demanded free coinage in 1896 and 1900, and that it is now able to come over to the gold standard on account of a vastly increased output of money metals, is the John Sharp Williams idea, often spoken of as putting the responsibility on Na ture and Providence in order to relieve the party of any blame. But there is a vital difference between the Williams or Mississippi plank and the plank which the Parker leaders hope to have adopted, and which is given in full above. The Williams plank contains no pledge, no declara tion of purpose, no statement of intention to support and maintain the ex isting standard. And that is the very thing Messrs. Belmont, Hill and oth er representatives of Judge Parker say they must have if they are to have a (h.U'iv to carry New York, New Jersey and Connecticut for the Demo cratic ticket. The Williams or Mississippi plank, from which all but the pledge part of the proposed plank was drawn, reads as follows: hut 1'iiii'iuiiin inn i niii-i (iiiutiio iiiu niiinu v upuu me viimHa- The Democrats seem to be combining on Parker for president and it looks as if it Avill be Parker on the first ballot. Of course Hearst, Gray and Olney will have cabinet positions if Mr. Parker has any such positions to dispense next March. Glen Miller Park was well patronized last Sunday. It does a cit izen of Richmond good to see the rich and poor, the laborer and those nho have leisure, enjoy the pure water and peaceful shade of their own park.

The fact that these results have been reachedby no action of government, but by I'the act of God through human instrumentalities o fdiscovery and inven tion, does not lessen our gratitude." In other words, with or without explanation and apology, the Dcmo ' t cratic party proposes to come to the support of the gold standard eight nyears after the Republican party, assembled in this city, iwanaged to screw its courage to the sticking point and use the word "gold" in its Mat form. The Republicans obeyed the mandate of events at a time when "Vnly the more open minds were able to read it in the skies, and, after a rst and terrific battle fought on that very issue, and a second one of lesser lough like significance, the opponents of the present monetary standard i 1896 and 1900 now propose to pledge their support to that which has ?en set up and whose maintenance is no longer a practical question in femerican politics. Ol Even now the Democrats are afraid of the word "gold" even as a jyeat many Republicans were eight years ago. f James II. Eckels has proposed a real gold plank: "The Democratic ' jiarty adheres to the gold standard of 1834 and 18.33, and insists upon the parity therewith of every dollar issued by the government." But there is no likelihood that a plain, blunt gold plank like this will .Ce adopted.

The monthly report of the city health department, published yester day in brief, is one of the best that has been made for several months. As to the birth-death part, the births outnumbered the deaths by three, which is good, but which might be better. Special attention should be directed to the sanitary part. For the first time since last September the city is in a state of clean, good, sani tation, with not one case of conta gious disease within the limits. The last two cases of diphtheria were healed a few days ago and with them, went the last of the diseases that are able to be "caught." This is a con dition of which Richmond should be proud, as it shows that the people are desirous of having a clean city and to that end are willing to take the precautions necessary for the rendi- F.
