Really and truly, the Bryan cause seems to be in a most wabbly way throughout the nation. Tar way wheat i going up and ailver isn't i a caution to believer in the Coin" Harvey theory. The Indiana Populist are alleged to have been eold out by their fu ton coromittsc.but the good refuse to be delivered. I parts of India recently there were riot on account of the high price of wheat. So cheap wheat i not an unmixed evil. Dekwi is out of the race for ('-on-grees in the Lexington district, and Breckinridge will represent it in the next Congress. "Hcrbah for Bryan and Eleven- thirteenths of Sewall and Two-thirteenth of Watson !" i the correct Popocratie yell in Kentucky. Abtie Sewall admits taking gold contracts, but says be is custom-bound to do so. After Novem ber the people will become custom bound to speak of him as one of the also-rans." Majoe A. T. Wood, of Mt. Ster ling, is quoted in a newspaper as saving that he would give his house and lot to any man that could find five free-silver Republicans in Montgomery county. Palmer and Buckner are steadily gaining adherents from the Bryan aide throughout the nation. Cool reason teaches Democrats that tbey are the true Democrats and repre sentatives of true Democracy. Wheat went above 70 cents per bushel last week. It is claimed ' that wheat in the prairie country of the West and Northwest eoet only 35 cents per bushel to grow. 70 cents is double and good profit. W. F. Porte n was chosen by the New York Popocratie manager to succeed Thacher, resigned, as Gu bernatorial nominee. Porter will get the rasxle-daczle inky-dink to an extent that will simply be anni hilating. The Silver trust and politicians, who by the administration of the slow poison of their selfish interests ' have brought the nation to m sick bed of severe suffering in order to have the silverite physicians called in to prescribe silverite remedies, are not the one for the patient to trust now. Stop the giving of the silver poison and the patient will get well and strong again ; other wise it is bo nod to get worse and jnay actually die. Tiifkf isono thing certain : Only one person can ho elected to each of the county offices. Xnw, hands up! How many have lieen I oil In be liove I hoy oan lo elected In oaoh county I'llloo if they will only light liurd fur Itrva ti V Skwai.I. is alleged to have given $20,Mm to tho l'opoorn tie campaign fund lately and made tho maunders happy. If Iruo that fastens Sou all as the main tail of the Bryan kite, and Ta in at son is a more flut tering superfluity. The log-cabin ticket comes first on the ollloial ballots, then the rooster, the plow-and hammer next. the "dry noxl, and then at tho last comes tl'e TIkhums Jefferson head tiekot. But the last shall bo first some of these days. The Now York Journal, owned and edited bv one of tho California Hearsts, is the onlv prominent dal ly in the East whooping it up for Bryan. The Hearst estate includes f ;i.ri OOO.tHM) in silver-mining prop erty, which accounts for some things. IkEt HKN Koi.n and Bowman, the A I attain a Populist ic lenders, have deserted Watson outright an J de clared for Bryan and Sewall. That was an unkind cut indeed. Tho since re Populists are doomed to betrayal by their most conspicuous leaders. Bryan has a pood berth waiting for him after his defeat in Novem ber. Hearst, of the Now York Journal, will make him the Wash ington correspondent for his two papers, so it is said, at a salary of $10,000 per year in honest, 140 ecnt dollars. Georgia held her State election Wednesday, and it is presumed went overwhelmingly Democratic. They stick together down there on State issues, but in November the defection from Popocracy will be decided and will cut down the plu ralities of former 'oars. Up to the latter part of last week it was estimated that the advance in the price of farm products the previous three weeks represented a proGt f $2:15.4)00,000 to the farm ers of the United Slates. $52,000, 000 was on the wheat crop alone. How times would gladden the far mers' hearts if it wasn't for the threat of Bryunism. Oxlt 1,000 names were needed to the etition to have the Palmer and Buckner ticket printed on the Kentucky ballots, but over 7,000 names were secured in Jefferson and other near-by counties, the dis tant counties not being drawn up on for petitioners. The old heroes are going to get a flattering vote in their native State. The 7th district RepublieanCom mittee met and decided not to hold a Congressional convention. The Committeemen stood' to 1 against nominating anyone. Judge Geo Denny ws anxious to make the race for the nomination. It is ev ident that the overwhelming senti ment of the Republicans is to help elect Breckinridge over the Popo cratic nominee. "We favor free silver, but we favor free government more, and while the success of the party upon the Chicago platform might bring silver monometallism it would af ford no hope of bimetallism in this country." Extract from the late Colorado Republican Mate plat form. Some well-meaning people among the Bryanites don't seem to realize what hideous spectres they are helping to conjure up and that will not down hereafter. Sexator Teller, the Popocratic Republican silverite leader, is quoted as expressing the opinion that legalized Bryanisra will not make good times immediately, but may be expected to bring good times inside of twenty years. In side of twenty years the most of the present distressed people of middle-age will have passed super fluous from the stage of life, Sound-money men the country over haven t a doubt that silverism abandoned will briuggood time in a very short time. Ik looking over The Outlook of last week's issue we find where we stated that "greenbacks were the only money iu circulation before 1873." Technically that isn't cor rect, but we used the word "green backs in it colloquial sense to include paper currency generally, knowing, or course, that national bank notes and greenbacks were in concurrent circnlation. Of course, also, we meant"before 1873" to refer to the period between 1873 and the issuance of greenbacks and national bank notes. Is late letter Secretary Car lisle states these facts: From Jan. 1, 1896, to Sept. 30th, 1896, $13,012,512 in standard silver dollars were coined at the U. S. mints. Since November 1, 1893, when the silver-purchasing clause of the Sherman law was repealed, $17, 669,491 in standard silver dollars have been coined in the U. S. mints. That is twice as many as were coined from 1792 to 1878. During Sept, 1896, $2,700,000 in standard silver dollars were coined. About the same will be coined this month. The seignorage, or gain to the Government, ainee Nov. 1, 1893, on silver coinage is $5,700,000. The foregoing coinage was done to redeem the Treasury notes is sued in purchasing the silver bul lion under the Sherman law. Since Aug. 1, 1893, $31,126,722 in these Treasury notes have been redeem ed, the silver dollars taking their places in the circulation. The Government report of Con troller Kokols shows there was in evidence on July 1, 1816, $101, 411,470 in gold in a certain number of the banks and the Treasury. Tho amount of gold held privately isostiiiiated to be over $200,000,00(1, besides about $15,000,004) was re cently imported. There is no sear city of gold in this country, mid all that is necessary to make it readi ly exchangeable for silver or paper currency is confidence that the proposed new silver standard will not be enacted into law. The State Popocratie Committee at Blackburn's request asks Car lisle to divide time with Blackburn when he makes hi four speeches in Kentucky; that, too, after Blackburn said at Owonton that the inmates of hell were as much entitled to lx called Christians as those who took part in the Indian apolis con volition were to be called Democrats, and is hold by ' those claiming to know to bo at least partially responsible for the crowd howling down John M. Athorton the same day. Carlisle declined to divide time. The 7th Ky. ( lxington ) Popo cratie Congressional convention mot at Frankfort last week, and the vote was so near evenly divided between Bronston, Settle and Car roll that the convention became deadlocked. It adjourned for good Friday, and a primary elec tion was ordered. It was learned too late that tho law requires 40- days' notice for a primary, and a legal primary can not now lie held. The balloting began with 61 for Bronston, 56 for Settle, and 47J for Carroll, and didn't vary much. The prospi et seems hopeless for the Popoorat there now. Wasiiikotox, D. C, Sep. 30, ISOfi. Sir. Wm. C. Smith, Louisville, Ky. My Dear Sir: Ycur favorof the 28th is just received. There is a majority in the United States Senate tn favor of the free and tin limited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, and eight or ten of the free-silver Senators have an nounced their purpose to defeat any tariff bill in Congress unless a free coinage provision shall be in serted in it. They were sufficiently strong at the last session to pre vent the passage of a tariff bill, and if they adhere to their purpose as announced they can also pre vent it hereafter. Very truly yours, J. G. Carlisle. A German silverite of Texas ev en rais-translatedPrinceBifmarck's letter in German and made it read more strongly for silver than Bis marck meant. But can the "Man of Blood and Iron," who was con sidered to be a tyrant by many of Ins own people, teach American Democrats how to run their Gov ernment when they are so preju diced against the opinions of freedom-loving statesmen of free Mer ry Old England? If they want a foreigner's advice why not get it from m. E. Gladstone, the great est tf English-speaking men, who admires America more than nearly any foreigner and understands us and our Government better than nearly any of our own people do? Carlisle is coming to Kentucky about Oct. 15th to make five speeches, at Louisville, in Owens boro or Henderson section, in Bowling Green section, at Lexing ton, and in Eastern Kv., probably Bourke Cochran will speak at Louisville Oct. 22d. Col. John R. Fellows will speak probably at Mt. Sterling and at Ashland. Besides the foregoing the State is being thoroughly stumped by Senator Wm. Lindsay, R. T. Tyler, Boyd Winchester, E. J. McDer mott, Alex P. Humphrey, J. Quin cy Ward, Thomas W. Bullitt, T. P. Hill, Basil W. Duke, John M Atherton and Helm Bruce, all Dem ocratic big guns for Palmer and Buckner. Here is a truth from Talmage's sermon of Sunday a week ago. that if constantly kept handy for men tal reference will prevent many a blasted hope: "There are young men and older men who hope through the right settlement of this acrid controversy between silver and gold, or the bi metallic quarrel, that it will become easy to make a living. That time will never come. It never has been easy to make a living. The men who have it very easy now went through hardships and self-denials to which most young men would never consent. Unless they got it by inheritance, you can not men tion 20 men who have come to hon orable fortune that did not fight their way inch by inch, and against fearful odds that again and again almost destroyed them." Eh, Knob Lick? Bardstown, Kt., Oct. 4. To all Populists in Kentucky who are op posed to having their votes traded off to the Democrats by our Popu list Committee, greeting: Brothers, if we are Populists in earnest we can only support the principles of our party and candi dates for public olllce who honestly represent them. We can not afford to stultify ourselves by abandoning the principles we hold dear, w heth er we are bidden to do so by the dicker of a committee or any other authority. Every Populist in the State of Kentucky who does not wish to see our party die, who does not wish to see the cause for which we have struggled so hard in the past per ish and with it die all hopes of re form in the breasts of our people for years to come, is most earnestly urged to send me his name and ad dress at once. Every Populist who loves prin ciples more than those scheming politicians and that embraces nine-tenths of the rank and file if he wants a straight-out middle-of-the-road electoral ticket to vote for, will please send we his name I and address without losing a mo ment's time. If we put a straight electoral tiokrt in the liclil we must act quickly and decisively. I appeal to every middle-of-the-road Populist in the State, who is resolved that no man or sot of men oan trallle with his vote, to assist mo in this work. I hope the fol lowing brothers will go to work at once and help me in this work: John G. Blair, of Nicholas; W. B. Bridgford, of Franklin; Frank Kcclenwnhl, David O't'onncll, Bon J. Wibbell, of Louisville; J. I. Green, Oscar Hughes and Charles Durbin, of Grayson ; Bon S. South, of Hardin; Bon Currant, James O'Bryan and A. S. Johnson, of Meade, and every other true Popu list whose eye shall see this call. I have already received a number of responses. If you are with me, answer quickly. I mean business. With me it's Mill "No Wutson, no Bryan," and will boon November 3. Friendly papers please copy. And nil persons in sympathy with this movement will please put this call in the hands of every Populist friend or neighbor he can reach. If we net promptly, we can yet meet, name our electors and get thorn on the ollloial ballot tinder the plow and hammer by petition. Fraternally yours, .Ioseth II. Aunoi.I). That Forgery. A short time back the Advocate culled attention to the fact that Hon. Laliuc Thomas was using in his campaign an article purporting to be n copy of an editorial that appeared in the London Financial News, and had been pronounced a forgery, giving the Oiualm Bee ns authority for the declaration. An esteemed friend, and a subscriber of the Advocate in Denver wrote to the editor of the Advocate and en closed n clipping from the Denver Tribune, which contained a special telegram from Chicago, stating that indisputable proof has been received at Democratic Headquar ters of tho genuineness of the Lon don Financial News article. Our correspondent suggested therefore that the Advocate might be mista ken in assuming that the article was a forgery. Recognizing the merit of the suggestion and ut the same time desiring to got at the facts in the case the clipping from the Denver paper was sent to the editor, of the Omaha Bee with a re quest that we be furnished with copies of the documents upon which the claim of forgery was bused. In reply we have received a copy of the Hoc, dated September 19, and in it we find find fnc simile repro ductions of a letter from the editor of the Financial News and an ed itorial from the same paper. The letter is addressed to A. C. Tlatt, Lincoln, Neb., who clipped the al leged utterances of the Financial News from Bryan's paper, the Omaha World-Herald, which, was the first to publish the article, and carried it at the head of its edito rial column for months under .the caption "Paste This In Your Hat," and sent clipping ta th?ujtor ot he F icial News and ask -t it it was gent ine. Tho following re ply, under date of Aug. 11, 1896, was received : "We beg to return your cut'ina which yoa-for warded us, aa'. to say that no such article evrr ap pcared in the Financial News." In addition to that tho English paper, in its issue, August 13, 1896, says editorially : "We have received numerous letters from American correspond ents containing what purport to be editorials from the Financial News, and which have been reprinted in various western papers as "cam paign literature." One Omaha pa per prints an article stating that it is "from the London Financial News of March 10." No such ar tide was ever printed by us, and its whole tenor is directly opposed to the view we have taken of the effect of free silver in the Unite! States. So far from advocating free silver coinage, we have per sistently pointed out that it spells repudiation and the withdrawal of all European capital. From this evidence it is natural to conclude mat tne article is a forgery, and, in the light of the facts presented, we presume it will no longer be used as campaign ma terial. Danville Advocate. Facts Recalled. I'jrnlUiana Courier.) The nomination of Gen. Palmer on the National Democratic ticket has revived the order issued by him when in command of the Fed eral troops in Kentucky warning all Rebel soldiers and Southern sympathizers from attempting to exercise the right of suffrage, un der penalty of immediate arrest and imprisonment. Gen. Palmer acting under superiors was also acting under the statutes of Ken tucky. All Rebel soldiers and Southern sympathisers were dis franchised by an act of the Ken tucky Legislature. They did not attempt to exercise the right of suffrage, knowing the law. Hon. Hugh Newell wag a candi date for the Legislature with the understanding that he would work for the restoration of Confederate soldiers and sympathizers to citi zenship. Hon. A. II. Ward, a valued citi zen, a lawyer and scholar, an old line Whig, and a Union man and civilian, was a candidate for Con gress, Bell and Everett Elector, whose motto, was: "The Union, the Constitution and Enforcement of the Law." His opponent was Gen. Green Clay Smith, a Democrat. Douglas Elector, a lawyer, and a soldier of two wars. Judge J. Q.Ward stated, in his speech Saturday, that he telegraph ed Gov. Bramlette that the polls were surrounded by bayonets. The Governor's order was, in reply to that telegram, that the election should not be interferred with. The statement is made that these things occurred after the close of the war. A fact which should also be borne in mind is that they oc curred little more thnn a hundred ila3-s after the assassination of President Lincoln. And when that is recalled, a sad event, equally deplored by South and North ; by the South becauso his death could not make mutters any better, and perhaps worse for tho oppressed and stricken South, it brings to mind the lamentable condition of the whole country, the bitter ani mosities, envy, hatred, malice, that was in every heart. Then the death of Mr. Lincoln interferred with the withdrawal of troops from Ken tucky. Far be it from us, the vilest Rebel of them ull, to defend Gen. Puliner or the Negro soldiers, but some who nro old enough to remember the notion of the Legislature, the "military necessities," theeventsof the times, seem wholly to have for gotten these things. Tho fact that the young woman with a glib tongue, ready invec tives, and a patriotic spirit, was a Rebel, traitor if you will, amounted to about as much then as docs be ing a true Democrat now. Her battles were fought out in the par lor with the brave young men who further exhibited their patriotism in similur buttles on the street cor ners, and survived to condemn Pulin ers and Bucknors. Ouch I 1 Editor of The )itiok: Sir. the criticism editorially f;iven in your issue of (let. 1st on the open letter of ox-Confederate to Uen. I tuck iter does not controvert the fact that Hon. It. 1). Lucy and Col. J. Smith Hurt wore defeated for the Leurisluture and Congress in IV by the infamous order of John M. Palmer enforced by soldiers at the polls, and that hun dreds or our host citizens were de prived of the rifjht to vote or even po near the polls under penalty of arrest and trial by military authority, nor any other fact set forth therein. As nil of t In intellect in the Demo crat party outside of that possessed by Cleveland uud Carlislo "is mo nopolized" wo feel that we should not lie harshly judged for failing to possess that which is hold and mo nopolized by a close corporation, and that it illicit bo wise to submit fur ther attempts on our part to you for revision ami correction. However this may be it is possible you may bo mistaken in the moaning or that wlileli you navesoirenerouslv uttomptod tooiiticise. Disinforma tion is that in 17'.'2 Hamilton framed the coinage laws which established True liimetallisui in America, mid that J elf orson endorsed and Wash ington approved them, and that those laws are wholly at variance with the views of the Palmer McKiuloy Aid Society. We further believe that had you road the Chicnjro platform your de nunciations of the true principles of nomocracy sot tort ii tlierom miiit not nave been written. I .earn your hooks before you at tempt to teach school. k One ok Thkm. We knew the sign was up "DoK'r Paon the TaghebI!' but, fool like. we couldn't resist the temptation to "pluy smart" and tickle him in a friendly way in the ribs, even to the risk of getting clarvcd and chawed into mere remains Still, (dropping the metaphor) we stick to our jocular .criticism that Hamilton was not a patriarch of, the Democratic pag4y. That was all we attempted to controvert Our criticisai was not ot i corrtc'i but pertinent under th3 circum stances. Generosity begets generosity When our good friends "generous- ly" attempted to criticize one of our National Democratic. standard bearers and their admire J ex-Confederate comrade ws thought it would be no more t.ian "generous to criticise their criticism a little bit, to show them that they perhaps might be wrong on that patriarch question anyr-ow, with an implied hint that, judging from their opin ions expressed in their address, they might not be altogether accu rately informed upon the political matters in issue. As Pudd'nhead Wilson says: "Difference of opin ion makes horse-races" end things. The gracious compliment in re gard to the monopoly of Democrat ic-party intellect is gratefully ac knowledged. After your soft im peachment it would be useless to deny any longer the existence of the Brains Trust. But, old friend, if you will kindly mention it you shall not any more suffer from your own vacuity of Democratic thought as long as we control the "close corporation. Now, for in stance, if you had submitted this patriarch statement to us we could have shown you that we had learn ed our books sufficiently to teach that Hamilton was not a patriarch of the Democratic party any more than Beelzebub was a Bible patri arch. Regarding our not having read the Chicago platform, that was a gratuitous and puerile shot at ran dom, and we were not there. Real ly, now, wasn't that unworthy ot our kind friend's naturally cour teous treatment of a rival debater except occasionally in politics? In pursuance of dutiful drudgery we have waded through untold col umns and pages ot dismal silverite rot that we might t have avoided had we been lees desirous of in forming ourselves upon silverite doctrines; but reading, and under standing the intents and purposes of, that Chicago platform, and und erstanding the motives and actions of the parties whose influence was paramount in formulating it, was an unshirkable necessity so far as we possessed the ability and op portunity to do so. Yes, we read it, and if you had read the issues of Tub Outlook subsequent to the convention you would have known that we denounced its salient fea tures in detail. A newspaper of fice gets in its various exchanges and otherwise access to about all the arguments on both sides of the money issue and other political is sues, and the conscientious, indus trious newspaper worker certainly takes advantage of his opportuni ties in that respect. In remoter historical matters the standard works supply sufficient material for never-ending research. These storehouses may or may not be drawn upon, depending upon how thorough and accurate the writer or speaker wishes to be. We do think it not good policy to ghonlishly resurrect dead and buried war issues for the eake of their prejudicial effect on current politics. Only a short time ago Gen. Wallace made a bloody-shirt public criticism of the building of the Richmond monument to Jeffer son Davis. Some of our ex-Con- frderate friends were very wrathy nt his utterances, and, we thought, justly so. The obligation to ab stain from reviving war animosi ties is as binding upon one side ns the other. On the Southern side it is necessary as apolitical policy, if for no other reason, for the pre ponderance of population Is in the North, and the consequent influ ence of such prejudices is much more potent for mischief against the inujority party in the South. Gen. Palmer while in command in Kentucky hud to obey the orders of his superiors. Any blame must attach to his superiors. So far as we can learn he was as moderate personally as any one in his posi tion could well have been. There fore it is not good policy, nor gen erosity to Gen. Buckner, to assail Gen. Palmer on his war record. If Gen. Palmer had been nominated as a silverite in place of Bryan the silverite would have supported him enthusiastically and fwlt iiw dignant if the gold-etandard people had sought to urouse prejudices by the bloody-shirt method. Coming to Hamilton again, our information coincides with yours so far as you state the agreement between him and Jefferson on a bimetallic bill is concerned. They agreed that the commercial ratio between gold and silver was the only proper coinage ratio. They thought they found the commercial ratio to be 15 to 1. The law made in accordance with their agreement provided for bimetallism, but did not establish it. Bimetallism with unlimited coinage of both metals has never been established longer than the commercial ratio coincided with the coinage ratio, which has never been for more than a brief time. The 15 to 1 ratio having failed to secure bimetallism, or the con current circulation of gold and silver, the coinage of the silver dol lar was suspended by Jefferson during bis term of office, and its coinage was not resumed until in 1834, when, with President Jack son's and the Democratic party's approval, the act was passed avow edly to establish the gold standard, which it did. Jefferson found the bimetallic theory a failure; so did Jackson. Jefferson and Jackson are patriarchs of the Democratic party, and the National Democracy can and docs look to them for in spiration, and not to the Popocrat ie McKinley Aid Society, that, to plagiarize Col. W. C. P. Breckin ridge, made McKinley's election certain by their Chicago business. The National Democrats wanted a home-like place of refuge, and they met at Indianapolis and magciti cently established it. CORRESPONDENCE. W. L. Calvert, of Sherburne, was here Saturday. J. M.
