seldom express their opinions for
publication, and when they do they
usually get into trouble either with
this government or their own, as
the case with the predecessors
of the pressât Spanish and Ha
waiian ministers, not to mention
Lord Sack ville West who ha# just
bobbed up again, whose troubles
are remembered by most newspa
per readers. In private the diplo
mats often exprese very interesting
opinions upon international tonics.
For instance, tbe following, which
came from a well-known European
member of the eorpe and was given
among personal mends with per
fect freedom, and with no idea that
it would ever be published. The
conversation had been upon tbe
K resent attack of jingoism which
as seized many of oar newspapers,
and when tbe diplomat was quiz
zingly informed by hia host, "It's
up to you," he smiled and said:
"Bab 1 there isn't the slightest dan
ger of a war between the United
States and England, over Venezu
ela, or anything else. The two
countries have too much in com
mon. During a long stay in this
country I have noticed that tbe
newspaper talk of a war with Eng
land begins regularly about a year
before your residential campaign
and ends on election day. It is
merely a way your politicians have
of exciting public interest. This
year Spain has been added to Eng
land, owing to the revolution in
Cuba. While the Spanish talk
may not be entirely for political
purposes, it is practically meaning
less. Spain neither has the money,
nor tbe men to fight the United
States, whatever her inclination
might be should this government
take official notice of the contin
ually increasing public sentiment
in favor of the Cuban revolutionists.
The United States may, however,
find itself engaged in war in the near
future, not with a European nation
but with Japan. The Japs think
because they licked a lot of unor
ganized, poorly armed and worse
fed Chinese that they can lick the
best army in the world. They also
think that their country is destined
to become a great maritime, manu
acturing and mercantile nation.
Having such thoughts it naturally
follows that they should have a de
sire to spread out, as it were. They
propose as a starter to the spread
ing process to attempt to get pos
session of Hawaii, and if an excuse
can be found will not hesitate to
use force. If they should what can
this government do but fight? It is
true that your present administra
tion has been unfriendly to the
present government of Hawaii, but
your Congress has declared that no
foreign country should interfere
with Hawaii and your constitution
places the power to declare war
solely in the hands of Congress.
Mark the prediction : if your coun
try has a war in the near future it
will be with Japan.
If claims could carry elections the
democrats and republicans would
both carry the states of Maryland
and Kentucky in which red-hot
campaigns are being waged. But it
takes votes to carry states and tbe
politicians do not hesitate to admit
privately, if assured that their
names will not be printed, that the
situation is about as uncertain as
it could very well be. In Maryland
the fight is entirely confined to local
issues, and is entirely personal—
Gorman vs. anti-Gorman. Sifting all
that can be learned from members
of both sides who come to Wash
ington, Senator Gorman seems to
have a little the best of it up to date,
although he is not out of tbe woods
by a long way*. In Kentucky tbe
issues are mixed, the silver question
and Senator Blackburn's rc-election
predominating, but whatever the re
sult, it will not settle tbe silver issue
in that state as there are silver men
working both for and against Black
burn, and the populists, who are
allfor silver, are running a separate
state ticket. A gentleman who has
just returned from a trip through
Kentucky says the leaders are all at
sea, and that be was assured by
numbers of them, of all politics,
that they would not be surprised to
see the state go 20,000 either way.
Some talk hae followed an ad
dress, advising the negroes to go to
Liberia, which was delivered here
this week by Bishop Henry M. Tur
ner, of the African M. E. Church.
He delared that tbe negro had no
future in Amerioa, while in Liberia
be might become a great statesman,
a great general, or a millionaire.
After expatiating upon the numer
ous advantages of Liberia, which be
called "tbe negro's promised land,''
he made tbe astonishing statement
that 2,000,000 thrifty and industri
ous American negroes are ready and
willing to go to Africa, bnt lack the
means to do so. He said this gov
ernment ought to run a line of
steamers to Liberia, carrying free tbe
negroee who wished to go there, and,
on behalf of the government of Li
beria be promised that every family
which went there should be given
25 sores of land for cultivation.
It seems difficult to get at tbe real
facta about Liberia. Notwithstand
ing tbe statement« of Bishop Tur
ner, others equally worthy of be
lief have declared that Liberia bad
no advantages to offer the Ameri
can negroes, and that those who
have gone there would gladly
tom if they could.

•Um. Ho soldi :
"When I returned from Europe,
where I had goes fer much-needed
root and to regsifi my health, I vos
confronted, upon arriving in Nov
York, by a statement in a gold pa
per that I had changed my position
upon the silver question and had
become a member of the single
gold standard party. That state
ment vas absolutely and uncondi
tionally false. No syllable had
had ever come from my lips which
directly or indirectly, could have
given just causé for any such charge.
So far from having changed my
opinion upon the silver question, I
returned to the United States more
convinced than ever that the wel
fare of this country and of the world
at large demanded the free and un
limited coinage of silver upon a
parity with gold. So far from hav
ing changed my opinion, 1 came
back convinced that this great re
public would be false to the princi
ples upon which it vas founded un
less it stood as the champion of
popular rights; the rights of the
people against financial greed and
monopoly. (Applause.) If I had
changed my opinion I would have
falsified every declaration of my
public life. I would have retreated
from the principles of Thomas Jef
ferson, the founder of the Demo
cratic party, and, in my judgment,
the greatest statesman that ever
lived. (Applause.)
If I had changed my opinion I
could not stand here to-day and
look, without a mantle of shame
upon my cheeks, into the faces of
people who, thirty-five years ago,
heard me defend the principles of
the Democratic party in this old
county of ours. (Applause.)
I came back to the United States
absolutely satisfied that the only
hope of bimetallism is in this coun
try. It is useless to look to Europe
for any help in this issue at this
If the United States should now
abandon the cause of bimetallism
that cause would be eternally and
irrevocably lost. If there ever was
time when we, in whose blood
flows that of the Huguenots, in
whose brains, and in those of our
ancestors was first conceived the
right idea of freedom ; of we, whose
government is based upon the
rightr of the people, for the people
and their children forever—if we
should now abandon the cause of
bimetallism, the equality of the
two metals—the life-blood of com
merce—then indeed would bimet
lallism be destroyed forever.
No, I came back more determ
ined thau over to stand for the free
and unlimited coinage of silver."
