An Old Letter Written by Bryan
Will be Used by the Gold
Standard Democrats.
Chairman Bntler States That the
Populists and the Democrats
Will Work in Harmony.
Indianapolis, Ind., August , 19.
Chairman Rvnum, of the executive oom
mlttee of the national demootatio party,
Stated to-day that it can be positively
asserted that every state in the union,
xoept Nevada, Idaho, Utah, and pot
ibly one southern state, will send s
full delegation to the ndianapols con
vention. The sonnd money headquar
ters has secured what Ibey consider i
mighty valuable campaign document
in the shape of a letter alleged to nave
been written by Nominee Bryad to
George M. Carden, of Dallas, Texas,
February 18th, 1893. The tetter, they
say, justifies the sound money bolt and
destroys the criticisms of Bryan upon
the aotion of the gold men at Chicago.
Here are some extracts that will be
spread broadcast bv the committee :
As early as 1893, when the demo
cratic state convention of Nebraska,
controlled by candidates for federal of
fices, endorsed the president's financial
policy, I stated that I would not follow
the democratic party to a gold stand
ard. Directed by my conscience and by
my best judgment, I shall use that vole
to defend my rights, protect my family
and advance the welfare of society.
No convention can rob me of my con
victions, nor can any party organiza
tion drive me to corspire against the
prosperity or liberty of my country.
'Men who honestly differ upon para
mount public questions cannot afford
to be harmonized by the national con
vention. Cleveland would not sup
port a free silver oandidate for the
presidency, and he should not do so if
he really believes free coinage would
ruin the country, because a man's
duty to bis country is higher than his
duty to his party.
(Signed) W. J. Brtan."
Sawtell. Appointed.
Washington. D C, August 19.
President Cleveland, to-day, appointed
Col. Charles G. Sawtelle, quartermas
ter general of the army, with the rank
of brigadier general. He succeeds Gen.
K. N. Butcbelderwho retired on the
27th of last month.
The Market Report.
Wall Street, N. Y., August 19
Stocks, after a steady opening, devel.
oped a weakness, prices declining
per cent. Sugar, Grangers and
Manhattan scored the greatest losses.
There was a light pressure to sell,
heavier, outside of sugar, which was
force down to 103.
A Small Affair.
Decatur, 111., August 19. The first
state convention of the national party

noon, after a temporary organization
bad been effected. There were about
fifteen delegates present. A state ticket

direct issue of currency and free silver.
They are also against fusion and ex
peot to poll 12,000 votes this fall.
Pour Poor Hobos Killed.
Topeka, Kans., Augnst 19. A Bock
Island freight carrying stock from the
southern part of the state, was wrecked
at the sugar mills, four miles west of
this city, this morning, at 5 o'olock.
Four men stealing a ride in a feed box

slowly pulling into the switch when a
box underneath a car dropped down.
Six cars in the train were ditched.
CHAIRMAN butler talks.
The Populiita and Democratic Committee Will
Work In the Utmost Harmony.
WA8HW0TON, D. C, August 19.
Unless the wishes of Chairman Butler
and the members of the exeoutive com
mittee are set aside, Mr. Watson, the
populist candidate for the vice-presidency,
will not be officially notified of
bis nomination for that plaoe. Chair
man Butler, last night, while deolining
to make any specific statements on the
subject, said the failure to notify would
not be unusual, for the reason that the
populists had never yet notified candi
dates. Chairman Butler denied that
any pooling arrangement, for the cir
culation of literature, had been, ar
ranged between the democrats and
populists, but admitted that they would
work together in the utmost harmony.
It was decided by the committee, last
night, that there should be but one
head for the populist executive com
mittee, and the congressional commit
tee, and Senator Butler will therefore
Preside over all the work.

Saratoga, N. Y. August 19. The

tlon of the committee on international
law appointed by the convention of
last year, on "International Arbitra
lion." The committee is composed of
Hons. Everett P. Wheeler, of New
Yor : Riohard M. Venable, of Massa
chusetts, and Martin D. Follett, of

tha basis ot Lord Chief Justice Rus
sell's address to-morrow morning.
"To the American liar Association:
Your committee respectfully report
that they have, carefully considered the
subject of "International Arbitration."
That the bar association of the state of
New York did, on the 16th day of
April, 1896, present a petition to the
president of the United States, recom
mending that action be taken for the
formation of an international court of
Subsequently a conference in rela
tion to the same matter was held . in
the city of Washington, at which reso
lutions were adopted favoring the im
mediate establishment between the
United States and Great Britain of a
permanent system of arbitration, and
the earliest extension of suoh a system
to embrace all civilized nations.
"The international sailing rules,
international copywrlght, trademarks,
the protection of neutrals, the postal
union and the privileges conferred upon
the Red Cross society, are steps in the
direction of international arbitration.
"While it cannot be said in every
instance the result of arbitration has
satisfied both parties, your committee is
of the opinion that on the whole the
decisions have been satisfactory and
beneficial, and that it is desirable to
provide by treaty for a system of inter
national arbitration in aavanoe oi the
dispute to be arbitrated."
The committee also recommends a
resolution concurring with the opinions
expressed by the Washington confer
ences in April.
