It is impossible to pay the interest on mm- foit-ign debt, let alone the princi pal, in actual gold, for even if we oi;ld command the total annual pro duction of gold the world over it would not sutibv to pay the interest on our foreign dobr. Nor would all the gold wer mined in the world still in use as money be sutlhiont to extinguish our foreign debt if iaymout were dem.Kid ed in gold. Tho -old of the world in use as money is estimated at about $-l,(MM).Mun.:t;". our foreign debt at Tin majr portion of tho interest, ns well as the principal, of our foreign debt as it falls due, must and will be paid in merchandise or not at all. In jiierch.indise we ran pay both interest and principal, but not if we persist in the policy of gold monometallism. The constantly increasing quantity of com modities that we are required to ex port to meet the charges of 'our foreign debr. as gold appreciates and prices full, is impoverishing our people and driving- us to bankruptcy. With wheat at a dollar and cotton at twelve eents we could readily pay the interest and reduce the principal of our foreign debt, but at present prices this is quite im possible. Our foreign creditors have in many rases stipulated for payment in gold, but where payment in gold is not .pee itieully called for it is our right to pay Ju full legal tender government money. To pay ill merchandise we must offer our commodities at such low prices that our creditors will prefer payment in commodities to gold. ;old is iot desired of itself. It is desired only because it commands the necessaries and luxuries of life. Therefore, if gold will buy more of such commodities as are desired fr con sumption by our foreign creditors in the 1' ni ted States than elsewhere, they will take such commodities in preference to gold. Hut under gold monometal lism, to make our chief articles of ox Iort cheaper than those offered by sil ver using peoples, means the impover ishment and degradation of our pro ducing classes. Our task then is to remove such competition-and raise the ! price of wheat and cotton and other products. This can be done by open ing our mints to silver, and returning lo genuine bimetallism. The American. Greed for Gold. The greed for gold has caused the present stock panic, the war cloud, and the serious position in which all the nations of Kurope and of the two Amer ican nations nre now directly or indi- - lvctly concerned, says the Denver : Times. 1 Imgland wishes to increase her stores I of gold. and. at the risk of involving ' herself in war, she claims u part of Venezuela, where the richest gold mines of that country are located. Her nt tempted aggression in Nicaragua had the same object in view. Her attempt to stretch out. her boundaries in Alaska imply means that she wishes to absorb the gold mining sections of that coun . try. After Pnsident Cleveland had sent ; 'the most, patriotic and statesmanlike message to Congress that has been sent to that body within the last three de .. cades, he upsets all the good opinions I which his action had called forth by j n tdupid and indefinite message to Con i! gross, asking for more gold, and giving '"rent to a personal and insulting tirade Against the coinage of silver. There Is hot the slightest chance of n war with F.ngland, but the senseless demand for a single gold standard on Ihe part of President Cleveland may .throw this country into just as expen V ive a blunder as a war with a foreign ; owor would be.

Has there been any general panic, any slump in stocks in the West, North west or South? A. Xo. .- II.-is Cleveland favored these sec tions of the country in the past in such a way as to make them feel a greater loyalty to him than is to be found in the Hast? A. lie has not; rather the reverse. i. What is the 'sound money" finan cial center of this country? A. Wall street. J. What is it doing to uphold the treasury? A. Nothing.

A. -No, we leave that kind of thing to the traitors who only live on our soil while thev can live off our count rv, like the parasites they are. Denver News." Tay Them in Silver. Th best answer Congress can make to the President's special financial mes sage is the adoption of a resolution in structing the Secretary of the Treasury to make payments in silver if silver is more convenient. The President's complaint Is that gold Is being with drawn and that there must be a change in our entire financial system. The change that should be made is in the President's policy of permitting th,s, English financiers to designate the kind of money which they shall re eeivo in payment of obligations that call for "coin." The United States has two kinds of "coin." gold and silver. I'.ach Is unlimited legal tender either Is good enough for the American citi zen and either should be good enough for the English money lords. If the President would announce a change in his policy in this matter he would win new expressions of good will. If Congress will pass a resolution Instructing that this change shall be made the administration would at least be relieved of embarrassment and tho people would be duly thankful. Perhaps it would be business like for the United States to permit England ro drain it of Its gold In order to place this country in a position when it could not well afford to maintain its nation al honor, but we do not believe it. Pay our English friends off in silver if it is not convenient to pay them gold. Tho people of the United States would tolerate another issue of bonds for the purpose of raising money by iopular loan to defray the expenses necessary in demonstrating that the United States must be free from Itritish domination, but the people of the United States will not cheerfully submit to another bond issue made for the purpose of supply ing the English money lenders with gold to the detriment of our own people and the distress of our own country.

The Democratic national convention fill he held in Chicago July 7. This con clusion was reached by the committee in session at Washington after twenty-nine ballots had been taken and the struggle had gone on until well toward midnight. Starting in with but six votes, Chicago steadily gained iu favor until the wen the prize. At one time the number of votes east for her was leit four. Nev r theles.H hr fitness in location won the tight for her. "It was n pun question of geographj-," said one of the most prom inent Eastern Democrats and a member CllAtUMAX HAnUITV. of the ctnmnittee. There was no Muster, no buncombe speech-making, no noise of any sort in favor of Chicago, ays a Washington correspondent. She won the tight purely upon her merits, and after the individual prejudiecs of tho members in favor of other cities had given way. Th. detailed vote on the final ha Hot by States was: CU ago Connecticut. Florida, Idaho. Illinois. Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Mary fand, Massachusetts, Michigan. Minnesota. Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Oregon. Pennsylvania, Khode Island, South Da kota. Tennessee, Vermont, West Vir ginia. Wisconsin, District of Columbia. Alaska.

Virginia, Washington, Wyoming, Ari zona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Indian territory. Cincinnati Ohio. Chicago was voted for on the final round by all the distinguished Democrats upon the committee. Clark Howell, Sen ator (Jornian, Josia'h Cuiuey of Massa chusetts, William F. Sheehan of New York, William F. Harrity of Pennsylva nia, Bradley B. Smalley of Vermont, C C. Wall of Wisconsin and others promi nent in national or State afTairs, all voted for Chicago. The. understanding i.s that the Chicago delegation will be expcted to have a cer tified cheek for $10,000 ready for the ex ecutive committee when i. arrives iu Chi cago three weeks hence. This will be turned over to the committee, with the keys to the convention hall, and then ihc Chicago delegation will step down and out and leave the entire management of the convention in the hands of the na tional committee. There is to be no appointing of pr- geant-at-nrins or other otlicers by the Chi cago people, and no claim for large nnm btrs of tickets with which the convention hall can be packed. Everything is to be left absolutely to the national committee. It is expected that that committee will allot a certain number of tickets to the Chicago people, but how many or upon what terms has not been decided. The Chicago delegation wa.s quite willing to leave that matter in the hands of the national committee, content with getting the national convention and preferring to place the responsibility for its manage ment in the hands of that organization, and thus avoid any criticism as to mis management, such as has been made with reference to a. former Democratic convention held in that city. After the location hail been decided uiou the committee promptly took up the question of the date for holding the con vention, and the issue was soon sharply defined by two motions, one to hold it June 2 and another that it be held July 7. Th9 vote resulted V.'Z to IS in favor of July 7. Can Handle the Crowd.

Graceful IJackdown Projected in the Venezuelan Matter. Aside from the leisurely manner in which the Venezuelan cointnis,ion is ar ranging to prosecute its work, there are other indications, says a Washington cor respondent, that tiie administration has bee. me convinced that this august body will not have the honor of set Sling; tho great boundary dispute. While it cannot be staled positively that this belief is based entirely upon any sspecilie reports from Ambassador Bayard upon the sub ject, yet there is reason to believe sonic assurances of a satisfactory nature have come to the State Department that the matter will be terminated shortly, prob ably within two months or before a re port can reasonably be expected from the Venezuelan commission, and upon liars that will lie unobjectionable to our gov ernment. While d"tails of the arrangement are not obtainable, and perhaps have not yet been fixed, it is believed tiie basis of it will he arbitration as proposed originally by the Fnited States, hut with a llmila tion that will siitiire at least to save Brit ish pride and appear to maintain British COLISEUM. convention will be held jflyl consistency. This is likely to be found in an agreement letween (Jreat Britain and Venezuela directly, brought about through the good olliees of a third party, not nes essarily or probably the United States, to fO.bmit to a joint commission the question of the title to nil territory west of the Srhomburgk line, with a provis that if in the et.yrse of the inquiry of the com mission evidence appears to touch the British title to he lands lying to tlie east ward of that line tlie body may extend its functions to adjudicate such title. This arrangement. will meet the British contention that the original arbitration shall be limited to lands to the westward of the line, while, stiil conceding Ihe jus tice of the -ontcntioii of President Cleve land that the lands on the other side m.xy properly be taken into eonsider-ition in fixing the lMv.indary. Possibly a supple mentary arbitration will 1' left to deal with tlie question as to the title of the eastward lands, if tlie original commission dealing with the matter shall find that the title to the lands is a lit subject for arbi tration as shown by the evidence produc ed before it.
