Waller's let ter is dated in prison at Marseilles, June 12, and was received here a day r two since, through the state depart ment. The document is as follows: "To the Honorable Judge: I do not know whether a word from the accused will have very much weight with you or not, but I thank you for the privilege of speaking in my own behalf. I am charged with having violated articles of the penal code by corresponding with the enemy and giving him infor mation as to the movements of French troops in tills place. This charge, I am sure, can not be sustained nor believed by tlie honorable court when your hon or shall have made a careful and im partial examination of letters to my wife, Mr. Tessie and the young Hova. I call the attention of the court to the fact that in none of these letters are any French movements in Madagascar or elsewhere mentioned or referred to in any way. It seems to me that this fact can not be ignored or overlooked. Tills fact alone should warrant all ac make before the French court-i quittai of accused. It follows, in order to violate the article of code under which I am charged, that evidence should be given that the accused has corresponded with the enemy to the ex tent of laying before him the military movements and operations of the army of the republic. "The that I refer in the letter to honorable Judges will notice y wife t<> two assaults upon me by certain sol dlers whose names I unable to give. As to the first of these attacks, I In formed the French authorities of the United States consul's action. Subse quently the chief of the French police called at my house In Madagascar. Without the clear establishment of the charge, I contend that I should not be imprisoned even for a day. "I maintain that the courts should ertain so far ns possible the fut intentions of the accused under a charge of this kind, to find if possible whether it is the intention of the ac cused to remain here, and whether he has actual arrangements with the ene my to ussist them against the army of the republic. The letters and the evi dence will show the contrary, which circumstances had not been placed in my favor in coming to a judgment in this ci "France has always been noted for her love of justice and liberty and for her broad and generous treatment of all, of whatever nationality, and I be lieve that in the careful, deliberate judgment and wisdom of your honor that you will not close the doors of the world against a man who bas never borne arms against you."

Chicago, July 29.—The last day of the Harvey-Horr silver debate opened this afternoon. The day's attacks were di rected at the question of the feasibility of independent action of the United States on remonetization of silver and free and unlimited coinage at the ratio of 16 to 1 with gold, regardless of the action of other nations. The discussion was opened by Horr with the state ment that the figures and prices of coin referred to by Harvey on a former day showed the fluctuations for a series of years to have been normal ones in view of the supply and demand and showed that silver legislation had nothing to do with the matter. In fact, it was Im possible to show that silver legislation had affected the price of agricultural products. Harvey's figures, Horr de clared, were made up from English and not American prices. On the sub ject of city said Harvey paragraph. Horr said the question at issue was not one of city, but one of farm tenancy. This tenancy, Horr averred, was misquoted by Harvey to show an increase, whereas there was an actual decrease as shown by the census tables. Harvey quoted this statement in ing from Carroll D. Wright. He, Horr, had written Wright about it and he replied that he made no such state ment. Replying. Harvey said he had taken the figures as published and attributed to Wright. He asked the labor leaders whether it could be relied on and they said it could. Since then he made direct Inquiries and findlhg the quotation er roneous he had erased it from the plates of the book. THE COINAGE OF METALS. Taking up the regular discussion, Harvey presented a table showing the coinage of gold and silver from 1792 to 1872. He did this to show that gold did not seek the mints for the first 60 years of the nation and silver did not from that time till 1876. Harvey then quoted from his book the total amount of gold and silver in the world for coin age uses in view of the fact that the amount diverted from coinage for the use in arts had greatly increased with in the past few years. Mr. Horr, coming down to the ques tion in hand, declared It was useless to try to fix the relative value of any* two substances by legislation. The law of supply and demand stepped in amt In the history of the world's legislation, showed that it was impossible to main tain a fixed ratio between the preclou« metals. and farm tenancy, Horr qVioted only a part of the of his books as com Mr. Harvey said that when he reach ed the matter contained in Mr. Horr's last talk he thought his (Harvey's) &n would be satisfactory!. Continu ing his line of argument, Mr. Harvey quoted estimates as to the consump tion of gold for use in the arts and otherwise, and for hoarding to the ef fect that these uses equaled if they did not exceed the production, so that the amount of that metal for coinage at a standstill. Mr. Harvey then took up the question as to what is becoming of the silver produced at present. He first quoted statements by authorities that the in crease of the use of the metals in the arts had grown so large that there was always a ridiculously small supply In Europe and there w r as a demand for practically all of the article the United States produced. THE PEOPLE'S MONEY. Proceeding. Mr. Harvey said that gold w hoarded by the few rich. Silver, on the contrary, was more valuable than gold when gold was hoarded by the masses of the people, thereby confer ring a general benefit. It was for this reason that silver had been a more stable metal in the past than gold. Mr. Horr said Mr. Harvey had the unfortunate habit of comparing things which had no relation. That was the matter with his cube argument on gold and silver. The cubic space which they would occupy had nothing to do with their value. Referring to Mr. Harvey'» statement that the remonetization of silver would reduce the debts by half, Mr. Horr said that by far the teurgest part of the debts of the United State» were less than a year old. Ing the short time in which debts were the existing gold basis, to reduce it one-half would be to repudiate that one-half, proposition would simply result in sil ver monometallism. He declared that cheap money could not be substituted for good money without injuring the mass of the people. Who would profit by such a change? It would not be the rich, but the money changers. wi irregularly produced and was Consider contracted under Mr. Harvey's THE ASSASSIN OF HERRICK HANGED Fredericks, a Notorious Outlaw, Paid the Death Penalty.
