Manufactories are the bone nnd sinew

manufactories would brln here thou

homes here and mnke room for moie
shipping clerks. There me not enough

more to be built, and in a few yenis
this cltv will be strongest where It Is

The boom In the London silver mar
ket came to an end too soon for the
comfoil of the goldbug press Humors,
of the hctllement of the question of In
(lemnlt) that should be paid bj China
to Japan had It that the vast sum de
manded would be requited in .silver, and
immediately the price of the white
metal began to Jump. The helling llgurc
went up with such a bound tint the
news mis given In the columns of eveiy
gold howling newspaper in the land un
der conspicuous headlines, and edlloilol
eomments plainly expressed the Joy with
which the Infni mutton was received In
nntl-sllver clreies It wns held to be nn
evidence that sliver would take caie of
Itself If It weie but let alone.
"ft Is plain proof," said a I'hll.tdelphla
organ, "that legislation by congress Is
not needed to restoio Its foimer value."
It was not for a moment to be admitted
that the appreciation of the metal In the
market ns a mere commodity was duo
to the most venturesome speculation by
the gold worshipers theinbelves. "Let
the United States keep Its bands off,"
said nnother monometnlltst oignn, "nnd
the 1'Iuroean countries will settle the
question themselves." "A wonderful
revolution has been going; on upon the
question of silver In the last few
months," said still nnother, "and the
present rapid rise In price of th metal
shows the effect of it across the water."
Hut wlun do they say about it now?
No sooner did the nows come that the
Chinese would hnve to pay the indem
nity demaneh d by Japan In gold than
down went silver, showing that the
movement upwards wns entirely speculative-,
and that the change of senti
ment had nothing whatever to do with It.
These gold organs Ore mainly con
cerned at the present time in keeping
ihe question out of polities if possible,
The would like to hush up the agita
tion among the people us long as pos
sible beeuuse they foresee the inevitable
result of a political campaign on the
lines of n square issue of silver or no
silver. The Inference they sought to
confer as to the significance of the ex
citement In the silver market was un
watrante.i 0 the facts.
There ins been a Hi cut change of sen
timent OT the question of silver in the
Inst fnw months, to bo sure, but that
chuiiKu has come about from the pel
slhtHM ulseussluii of the subjeot. Wher
ever the people have listened to the
fiuu they have been convinced of the
blighting power held by the gold monop
olists, und that real prosperity will
never come buek while all vulues nie
dominated by the Intel ests of those
whose liKomc depend, wholly iihiii t-o
much pet tent. Agitation of the peo
ple's side of this great question must
nut be allowed to stop.

There appears to be some dnnger that

The desire for party advantage be

contention for the continuation of ar

retention of the menus ot finud. That

The St. Louis committee of public

They hhould Insist upon the right of

They should Insist upon the right ot

Thev should Insist upon a light to con

does, not Imply a factious contention foi

The party that stands In the way of

A COOD l'ltlM'tl'I.K.
The Illinois legislature is doing some
excellent iuttoducliig. anil if Its enact
ing iccoid kei'ps pace with the nieas
ui es proposed, some er good examples
will be set. A bill Is now pending in
that legislating providing for the pun
ishment of municipal olllcers who fall to
perforin the duties for which they were
elected. Any cltl.en may go before the
proper court and make complaint
against any city Olllclnl to the effect
that the latter Is not doing his .swoin
duty and has violated his oath of otllce
Evidence Is taken nnd If the ch.uge lb
sustalr.ed the first offense is punished
by a light line, but the s-eeond Is pun
ished by a fine of not more than ?2,00t)
There tiro manifest Imperfections In
the law, but the principle Is nil right.
There is nn opportunity for paitisan or
personal enemies to harass nnd Incon
venience otlicinls in the law n: proposed,
but if public otllclals knew that theie
was a law which compelled them to pei
form their whole duty In accordance
with their oath, the public service
would be moro elllcient. The laws pro
vide for the punishment of olllclals who
are guilty of palpable and llngiant mal
feasance, but there It, no wnv of hold
ing otllclals to a strict nccouittablllty
nnd pi-iformnnce of their whole duty.
The public oirlclal who takes a solemn
oath to peifotm certain duties should be
held to an observance of tht oath. If
there weie some such law here there
would not have been so muoh fee grab
bing nnd collusion vlth criminals as
there has been In the past. The gang
would have beeen unhorsed long ngo.

Mayor Twlss, the new chief executive
of Knnsns City, Kns , presided over the
til st council meeting ot lil.i udmtnlstia
tlon Tuesday night, and, In taking the
chair, gave expression In a brief nnd
modest way to some Ideas ns to what
he ilelied and hoped might bo accom

and with the assistance ot so excellent
and competent n lot of busliiet-s men, as
