It is practically settled that Missouri
frerrmcrafs will have convention. The

II). nti.l It is proposrd to Interpret the
true moaning of the financial plank In
the state platform of two years asfo. In
bis addrtss on the Fourth, at Hoehe
port, Mtnti- Trc-nurT Stephens, who Is
one of the ory ablest flemocrats In
Missouri and a llnamlcr with an envl
nhle reputation, said'
"In mir lot etnte platform we ttwniirht

The same representations were mode
In regard to the situation in Kentucky,
and then the emissaries of the national
administration went to work with the
army of postmasters and revenue agents
to pack the convention.
Dave Francis Is authority for the as
sertion that the Missouri convention
will also he handled for the single stand
ard, and that the result In Kentucky will
make the job an easy one. But Treas
urer Stephens thinks otherwise. "While
I have great love for old Kentucky."
say he, "I do not think Missouri tins to
go there for tips as to how we should
conduct the politics of our state, no more
than we ought to go to Great llrllain
for tips as to how we should conduct the
financial afTalrs of this nation." And
that is the sentiment that will be relied
upon to checkmate the Cleveland move
in this neck of the woods.
"The Democrats of Missouri are to
day disorganized as they never have
been before," says the state ttousuror.
He favors the convention because he
wants to see the work of reorganization
begun immediately; but It will be one
thing to meet and another thins to
agree. There was no agreement in Ken
tucky add there will be none In Missouri.
The gold Interests are in the warfare to
a finish. The leaders fully understand
the desperate strait they are In, and
are prepared to sacrifice parties and
everything else to extend their monop
oly of the people's money.
The Kansas corn crop, like the his
toric peach which is so iirtlmntely asso
ciated with the untimely end of
Johnny Jones and his sister Susie,
keeps on growing and the ilgures
which represent the ultimate yield have
to be revised about once a week. At
the present rate the multiplication table
will have to be enlarged before the crop
is gathered. It has got so that a dis
crepancy of u. million bushels or so is
looked upon as u mere clerical error
and a hot wind or drouth that would
cut the crop down by a couple of million
bushels would not be an irreparable
Injury by any means.
Tho yield Is now estimated to be
ne.ir 401,000,000 bushelB. To readily
grasp the significance of such figures Is

advam ing. if the figures nre correct
that mte than rt million woiklngmen
hav hud their sy ralrd during (he
present s.Msofi, there Hte Jlll that many
loller who win testify it) the fact that
the teptldlrttlOM of the calamity breeders
by the elections nf the imst yeni lias
already borne rich frttll.
Tlie netnocMlle press Is . unit In the
expression nf Joy at the fact that the
bottom of the depression brought on by
the folly of their party luis been reached
nnd that the tide 1ms turned, but they
stop short of the nttttiivhleilffmrnt or
the cause for II It Is the practice of
the wideawake business man to discount
the future In his transactions so fur ns
he thinks he may safely do so. If lie
believed there was n. possibility that
the rule of ruin, under which he was
compelled to (rim Ills expenses to the
Very lowest ImMlblo limit, was to be
continued lie would not take the chances
or adding 10 per cent to his wngo list,
Itut according to the reports published
the employers of n million men and
women have done so, nnd the Inctensc
was voluntary. There Is no uceoiint
of strikes or threats of strikes In con
nection with the movement. They re
gard the good sense of the American
people as being measurably safe to
trade on.
There is n certainty that for two yenrs,
t any rate, the Wnr waged by the
Democracy on Industry nnd trade has
got to stop, Thnt fact alone is good
for one-half the benefits already real
ized. It will be only by an unprece
dented blunder by tho liepubltcnn party
that the last remnant of the Incompe
tent nnd un-Aincrlcnn crowd will not
be ousted boots ami breeches tit the next
election. The regeneration will then be
complete, and It Is that ptospect, with
the single shadow of doubt In the pie
mtses, that accounts for tho other half
of the Increase which has been made
In wages. When it Is all done nnd p.ist
condition are restored tho recovery
will be complete.

It is no new thing to produce proof
that speculators and slock gamblers arc
favored with tips from somebody con
nected with this administration. The
history of the administration has been
ono of favoritism nnd undue advan
tages being enjoyed by those who were
on the inside and hud a pull. I'ubllc
olllcc has been regarded as a private
snap and the friends of high olllcinls
have frequently had advance In
formation that gave them n de
cided advantage in their speculating
enterprises, llore than one high olllco
has been besmirched with the bcitndals
that have been provoked by this prosti
tution of olliclnl position involved In
tho giving of tips which plmce the
friends of the obliging olliclals on the
right side, of tho market.
The Xew York speculators In grain are
making a big "toar" because somebody
gave out tips on the government crop
report. It does not 'tend to increa.se
the respect of the average citizen for
the highest oillclals of the country to
have such charges made nnd proved.
The grain gamblers ought to bo tho
last persons assisted by information
which comes direct from one of tho
great departments of the government.
Somebody connected with the agricult
ural department Is either dishonest or
incompetent perhaps both.

In the Washington Post of the 10th
inst. we find un interview with Mr, O.
P. McCarly, general trnvellng agent of
the Southern Pacific railroad and Mor
gan steamship lines, and clip from it the
"If I were to have a choice of Hummer
residence I'd take the City of Mexico be
fore any other spot I know of. I wus down
there recently and had lo sleep under a
heavy blanket eveiy night Mexico is in
very good condition In a business and finan
cial way, and its people are enjoying a
higher degiee of pruspeilty than at uny
time In the lust twenty-five years."
It is the last sentence we especially
want to call attention to that Mexico
Is enjoying a prosperity higher than she
has for n quarter of a century. Mexico
Is a silver state her standard money
Is silver ond If she Is mouometnl at
all it is silver monometallism.
We also want to call attention to the
fact that tho United States was pros
perous as long as silver was a money
metal as It Is In Mexico, and that since
its destruction as uoh nnd the estab
lishment of a gold basis by the treasury
disaster and ruin has overtaken our
people. Why? Silver Is the money of
the masses of mankind, while gold is
only the money of the few the usurers
of the world. Mexico Is profiting by our

A company lias been organized In
Cblrngo to work the oil fields nf the
Imllnti Territory. The grent mineral te
Wlirves of tlmt lrclnn hsve been known
for some time, but on nceutiiit of the
dlillciilly nf neeen and the Inability of
white men to obtain brants fiom the
Indian governments nothing has been
done truvnrd their development. In Kan
sas and Aikitnsiis, dlieelly on the bor
der or the Indian lands, ilcli oonl mlne
liuve been opened and nmny oil wells
)wit winter a number of Chicago cap
lUIIsts sent a prospector through the
Cherokee and Mtukogov tintlons. lie
snent several months trnvellng through
the country and on his return leporfed
that there wus n vnst quantity of "II
nnd coul In the Okmulgee, Mukogee,
Kurnula and Deep Folk districts nf the
Muskogee, commonly called the Creel;,
The prospector was then deputed a
loblnlst, and after laboring through n
session of the house of warriors mid
house of kings of the congress of the
Creek nation ho succeeded In obtaining
n grant of over l,fnonoo acres nf land, Tho
Muskogee Oil unit lias Company was In
rnrnornicd with a capital stock of fl.uoo.

Oil and gas was first struck, in tho
Indian Territory many years nqo In
liorlng for suit, It was not required
to bore to any great depth, ns Is the
case In tho fields of Pennsylvania and
Ohio, and it Is said that oil and gas
can bo more cheaply obtained In the
territory than In any other section of
the country. The Creek liutlon retains
the proprietorship of all mineral lands
within Its borders, demanding n ioulty
from all companies which are given
grants. The royalty on coal Is fixed
by law ut C cents a ton, on rock and
stone at .I cents n ton, on oil 4 cents a
barrel of fifty gallons, on natural gns
tXi a year for each well from which
gas Is Mild and on nil other minerals r.
per cent of the value of such minerals
at the place of production.
An assay of ltlbtlcatlngoll found In the
Crerlc nation compares favorably with
that round In India, which Is considered
the best In the world, and contains it
larger per cent of lubricating fluid than
any other oil of Its kind found In
Natural (las Constantly Kcnplng.
Emll Hlose, who obtained the grant
from the Creek national council and
who has lived In the nation fir n-veinl
months, said that traces nf oil an.', coal
hud been discovered In n!m4t every part
of the Creek lands. At one place nn Ural
gns Is constantly oi-ouplng In latge
quantities nnd the oldst Inhabitants
lelatc that this gas was one used ns
n beacon light on the prairie
"It has been long known." Mr. Uleo
said, "that coal, oil and gas exist In
great quantity In the Indian Territory,
and nmnv effort i have been made to
obtain grants and work the fields, but
until recently the richness of the fields
was not known outside of a few ac
quainted with the country nnd who ap
preciated the value. Has and nil have
been found only -"0 feet from the sur
face. In boring for cult olt hns been
found which spoiled the s'llt and the
wells were abandoned. In the Musko
gee tho .facilities for transportation ate
probablv better than In any of the five
Indian "nations. Three tailroads run
through tho land nnd the Canadian
liver provides it waterway to tho Mis
sissippi The dllllcuttles of carrying the
oil and co;il ftom the legion have been
over estimated .Should oil lie found in
great quantities it would be an easy
matter to extend three or four great
lallway systems into the tcriitor. X'p
to date onlv the crudest machinery has
been used In working the fields and the
meager results that have been obtained
are not surprising.
Ilidb-vcd tn He the lllchrot In the Country.
"Some think that the oil fields of the
Cherokee and Muskogee nations -are the
richest In the country. The cheapness
of obtaining the oil is an incentive to
experiment. At the deepest one would
have to drill only about S0O fe.-t, while
In Pennsylvania It is required to go
down from IM" to 2.100 feet. The ex
haustion of the Pennsylvania, Ohio nnd
Indiana fields is considered only a ques
tion of time. When the supply In those
districts is gone it will be necessary to
look elsewhere, ..nd In my opinion the
Indian Terrltoty will develop tho richest
oil producing district in America."

anoo iiimii n fltne within the memory of
man the Industrious but poor people of
MiJ's Isle were favored by n rich lu.ui re
siding on the mainland with money to
build a chenp but i oinfortiiblo market
hotifo near the little port rroin'whleli were
shipped the mirpliis prcliicls of the Isle.
In the course of yenrs the Imwc became
rlikoty, nnd one night a wind laid It In
ruins. The citizens hold meetings and Hs
cuod the possibility or securing n new
market house. Albeit, there -was nn old
crank theie. who loldly told them ."the
uiiv tt lmll.1 t, i,,rl.,l Ittun, nil tn lilllld

llfltw.' At lnP Mm HtlvcMR rintsllnted 11
co-mmltteo to visit the mainland ond find
some rich person who would become bono
factor No. 2. They returnetl atior a fruit
less search. Another meeting, further do
lit ration, the old crank again uttered his
advice, "lo build " Hut, 6iild the people,
how': Then ho ild: "Let thp the powers
thnt be lsuo market house certificates of
a uniform ?l7.e nnd rimpe and or wnall de
nomination", ond pay thecn for work nnd
mntctlnls; nnd let the people ixiunt him mi
enemy and traJtor ulio refusei lo lend
his old to maintain the credit of the Isle
In this undertaking" With much fear nnd
many doubts on the part of the veh
kneed, the plan was adopted, and It
so improved In actual operation. All peo
ple having anything to sell readily received
it, nnd the lle -o prospered while the
house was under construction the author
ities very much enlarged the plans of the
houi-c, so that when finished It not only
far sui piiMieil the old house, but wn" much
grander than they lm.l over hoped to
have, and the people never knew ith.it It
had cot them n sou.
Another example Is furnNhed by his
tory. To this last there are many living
witnesses. In this country during the dark
dnys of the financial crash which com
mented In 1S73, and has continued with
somotlmes less, sometimes more vloli lice 10
the present time, theie was a little rltv
which grew and prospered so much that
Mho became Hie wonder and envy or tho
country. In 170 she had only ono paved
street, nnd Dial M.ik-ii-dnmd " and nl-mo-it
no sewers: In 1SS0 she hnd nearly
doubled her population nnd Increased In
wealth In a vastly greater rutlo, and was
then tho bet paved and drained city or
her size In tho country. The reason whv
she succeeded while other cities stood still,
or went backwaid. was, omoone had read
the story of the Isle or Guernsey and had
adopted the same methods; that city was
Kansas City, -Mo.
"Hut," siivs some ono, "congress enacted
a law nsalnst tho Issue of any warrant
or note in form and shape resembling a
government or bank note." True, nnd a
just law, made to nrotoot people from be
ing swindled bv- sharpers, but tho law does
not prevent the Issue of one, two or five
dollar public Improvement warrants any
more than It prohibits clearing house cer
tificates, bank drafts and checks. All that
Is needed is to so print them that they
could not be mistaken ror a government or
bank note,-which any good printer can do.
Would It not lie belter to give the Idle
employment thus, than to support them In
idleness, or than giving them work In jails,
work houses and prisons as punishment ror
crimes or misdemeanors, sometimes com
mitted as the only means lert them to get

warrants, nnd the ready sale of real es
tate, would bring, the end of the twenty
years or less would find the Improve

that none would feel it. but lather, bless
themselves for being liberal to the unem
