From ono of Mr. Klnlcy' leaders a corre sHndent was enabled 1 get a copy of tho declaration which the Ohioan's managers have decided to offer the committee on resolutions. It reads as follows: "The Republican jmrty is unreservedly for sound money.

We favor the use of silver as currency, but to the extent only that Its parity with gold can be maintained, and we favor nil measures designed to maintain lnvolably tho money of the United States, whether coin or pajicr, at the present standard, tho standard of the most enlightened nations of the earth." Thls.it Is understood, is entirely satis factory to all the McKlnley leaders.
