Mr. Money, of Mississippi, said this wotilH result in leaving many st:ir routes without bidders. Mr. Pnsco, of Flor,d.i. said steps should be taken to break up this speculative bidding In star routes. He had seen the service curried on in Florida in a manner unworthy nl the government as a result of the system of sub-biting. The amendment was allowed to stand with a suggestion from Mr. Jones, of Arkansas, that the conferees provide against sub-letting of star route bids.

MAND FOR PAPER MONEY. (By Telegraph t j Vlrf.man-Pllot.) Washington, l>. r, Feb. 18.?A tele? gram was received at tin- Treasury to? day from Now Orleans stating that there was a surplus of gold there nnd an Insufficient supply of paper cur? rency, ami asking Hint an exchange be made. Treasurer Roberts, in speak? ing of the situation, said: "We have- in lie- Treasury and Its branches $227,000,000 in gold and 000.000 in panel'. We arc gi\i:. i I what caper we can and distributing us well as wo can among our nine sub Trensiirerlcs. Wo have received lately applications from New York, Cincin? nati, Chicago ami Kansas City, nsking for ran pe r in return for deposits ? t gold in the sub-Treasury at New York. We have informed applicants that they would have to pay hankers' rates for transportation in such exchanges, and while the difference between bankers and government's rates is slight, it seem:, to be enough to prevent calls for tin- money. "Tho cause for these demands ins to i,e that tin- people have not yet be? come accustomed to using gold coin, and particularly to the fact that busi? ness is so active that pniter money being kept out among individuals In? stead of being in the banks. If g Id does not become popular as a means of commercial Interchange the banks will have to give relief by Increasing the issues of their own notes. That is i where tho relief must come from."

(Continued from First rage.) anoe or vepallty? cannot succeed agalnsl tempi rate arguments and ap? peals for simple JUBllcc, when the peo? ple have time to fairly weigh the ar-. gumcnts and form a deliberate Judg ment. There was great unrest and dis? satisfaction In D'.?*> throughout the country, resulting from falling prices nnd shrinking values. The Rcpubll I can party promised that If they were entrusted with power all this would he changed, und that prosperity should succeed existing conditions. Mr. Mc? Kinley and tie- gold press now assure the country that we have prosperity. There is quite a boom in stock Bpec I ulations In Wall street, but Wall street is not the country, as we believe. Great famine and a short crop of wheat all over the world, except in the United State?, naturally raised the? price ot wheat, while these conditions lasted, and the beneftcient effects of this tem? porary advance in the price of a sin? gle article, which was so marked in the short period it continued, is likely to stimulate a desire for a return to that condition permanently, and an exten? sion of it to all other products. This Is our purpose, nnd was our purpose In 1 SM, when the Republican party de nounced any effort to Increase prices as a crime." ACTIVITY IN BUSINESS. "How do you account for the activ? ity in business?" ? Tlier.' has been necessarily an in? creased demand for labor within the las. few moll I hs. as the result of the withdrawal of large numbers of Amer? ican citizens from the ordinary walk? Of life to lie employed ill the army, Whose place? had to be tilled. There has als i been an increased activity in and a demand I ir all products Which were necessary to the maintenance and support of a large army. But nil these conditions are in the very nature of things temporary, and all of us know that they inn.-: pass away with the eail of the conditions which brought them int.i life. Making due allowance for ;he Influence of these three causes, on the present condition of the coun? try, there i? to-day as much dissatis? faction and as much cause for It as ? there was in i?:??;. No relief was or is I to be expected under Republican man ageiii 'iil ex. opt such as .lies by fam? ine a Uro id nnd war at home. A con ! ditlOll of constantly falling general 1 pries is everywhere re tognized as a condition of distress and hard times, j and speculation excitement In Wall street docs nol change this. We be? lieve that a small volume of money ! forces prices down, hence we have PECULIAR POISONS. GENERATED IN THE HUMAIN BODY. ? lie It. suit ol impelled Digestion or rood.

CHICAGO PLATFORM GAINING GROUND. "Then you think the Chicago platform Is gaining ground?" "1 most certainly do. In the elections of last year the principles of that plat? form were not llo> leading anil exclusive issues in all sections of the country. These were partially obscured in many States and districts. The question of bi? metallism, the Republican effort to re? tire the greenbacks and to confer upon the national banks the absolute con? trol of the volume of paper money, and to surrender the country to the trusts, were, in many sections, for the time be? ing, lost sight of in the excitement of the war and its resulting questions, and in others they were sidetracked by efforts to substitute local issues In their stead. The result was a great loss of interest and a large falling ofT in the vote, with apparently unfavorable re? sults to the Democratic party. In Col? orado, where national Issues were at the front and dominant, the Interest in the election was intense, the vote large and our majority overwhelming. In .States where It was stated, whether truly or not, that there was an inten? tion on the part of the Democratic man. ! Bgera to sidetrack the great issue, with I tlie purpose of ultimately bringing the I I party in national convention back to the practice of shuttling and evasiorl, so long persisted In by the Republicans, the interest was not great, the vote was not full und the results were not con? clusively.
