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

threat of Bryunism.
Oxlt 1,000 names were needed to
the etition to have the Palmer

Kentucky ballots, but over 7,000
names were secured in Jefferson
and other near-by counties, the dis

on for petitioners. The old heroes are
going to get a flattering vote in
their native State.

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.
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Sherman law was repealed, $17,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
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

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

Democrats how to run their Gov

statesmen of free Mer

from m. E. Gladstone, the great

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.

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

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
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
The 15 to 1 ratio having failed
to secure bimetallism, or the con
