The roimbllcan loaders nre laying the wires for a financial take that is expected to tide the party ovor the Presidential campaign. The caucus committee of Representatives elect ed to the next Congress, chosen to prepare a financial bill for the re publicans, met in Washington this week and agreed to meet again at Atlantic City the 17th of next month. HOW this thing strikes a veteran political observer may be judged by the following words of ox-Congress-man bolllvcr, of Mo., In relation thereto: 'The republican cuueus com mittee is now engaged in making a pretense of doing that which they liayo no intention of doing; the framing of a measuro for curroncy reform. They will do their best, and I guess will succeed in staving off any change in th6 financial statutes until after McKlnley lias been a candidate for another term. Their heroic and vociferous asser tion that they will do anything at all, doos not fool me." It is probable that the caminittoo will get up some sort of a bill, but it will be purposely made meaningless. Mr. McKlnley has no idea of allowing any real financial 'legislation before the Presidential election. BenatoVJones, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, haB had a 'second nttiok of heart trouble, similar to the one that laid him up several, weeks before Con gross adjourned, but neither his pliysIcIun,nor his family regard his conditlcjfu as dangerous us it lias been representative to be in telegrams sent fromAyVaslilngton. Tho doctor thinks tlie Senator will be all right, if he will remain perfectly quiet for about-a month and not attempt to attend to any business whatever. Those.wiio.know the energetic make up of the Senator will understand bow difficult It will bo for him to moot'tlie doctor's wishes. Gen. Wllso'n, (Chief of Engineers, under wboirjr Gen; Hale, who is mnkfhg-a' fighting record in tlio'Phil ippIne'aTservod from the time he 'graduated from WestPoii.t with' the highest standing in studies ever at tained, until he resigned from the army to engage in private business, at Denver; Colo., said of him: "He was the most remarkable man I have ever known, botii in his studies and in his abilities and I am delighted to hear that he has made out so well. He.Uvyoung enough to attain almost anyihnk' if he should stay in the army;'' Gen. Halo entered the vol unteer army as Colonel of the Flrbt Colorado Regiment, and was pro moted to Brigadier General last August. He is only 87 years old. It is reported and generally be lieved In Washington that Secretary Algor has offered to resign, provided Mr". McKlnley- will allow him to na'lnohls successor. How is that for gall?. That such an offer should have been made indicates that Alger haB a hold upon Mr. MoKlnley that compels, the latter to defer to him. It would not change the situation a particle for Alger to retire from the Cabinet, If he was succeeded by a man selected by lilmself'to continue the system that has been aptly called Algorism and to cover up all its past defects. Mr, McKinley's wisest ad visers are trying to get him to defy Alger, force him to resign, and to put a man in his placo whose name will convince the country that he Will not allow a continuance of Algorism. This advice. would have boon. adopted long agoi only it has failed, to get tho endorsement of Boss Hanpa.i wno alope knows bow many dumaglng secrets connected with ,90"Xlger coulu and doubtless would tollj'lf not let down easy. ' The report that the Attorney General of the U. B. was about to begin ' proceedings against the Standard Oil Company for violating theiAutl-Trust law was too good to bo,true. Thero Is no doubt thut the Standard Oil trust and a score .of others aro constantly violating the Autl, Trustluw, but tho obligations of "thVprosent administration, to trusts, as well as the close business relations existing between some of tho uf en wlfo now dominate the re publican party with trusts, are such that' nothing short of actual convic tion oltlioin would convince anv- boiy that any serious prosecution of trusts win taica place ,unuer. this administration. When tho PresI- douifal campaign opens thero mayi ue n oiun uiucio towards prosecuting trusts, for tho benefit of the very gulllblftyoters. Mr. Daniel OILeory, chief faotory Inspplto'r'or New York, testified be for) the Industrial Commission, noty'slttlng in Washington, that ho had reported to tho War Department orpe time ago that clothing for the U 8. Army wus being made in tho sw$Jt shops of Neiy"JTqrk oity.Svhlcli shows how much sincerity "th"o is In thVoIalm of the republican party to bo-tho friend Of tho working classes. Mr. O'Leary said tho prices paid for this work; wore about ns follows: coats 82 cts, infantry pants 22 cents, cavalry pants from 20 to 85 cents, and vests from 11 to 14 conts. Nico friendship, to b a party to making men and women work for suoh prices, Isn't It? Thorn aro reasons for caying that Bomo sonsatioual testimony will bo given in support of tho charges of General Miles when tho Military Court of Inquiry returns from Its prosont noedless trip to Chicago. The latest rumor Is that tho canned meat which made so many soldiers sick will be proved to have boen horse-meat and not beef at all. The Yoke of Gold ys Equality. Joshua Well neighbor as near as I can see through this "single gold standard" scheme, It ia like an oxcentrlc old farmer I one time know who had a yullcr steer, he Wanted to brake to tho yoko. He put tho yoke upon the oxes neck but what to do with tho other end puzzled him, so ho finally thought ho could balance it by slipping his head Into the bow and drive und lead tho ox and so ho did and start, ed tho ox and after he got him started he could not got him to stop till tho ox was tired und the fanners neck was broke. So it will be with Uncle Bum, who has laid tho yoke of gold upon the necks of tho people and has had his neck forced in tho yoke to pull against them, and it will not bo strange if he should got his head pulled off while the money changers are put ting on tho whip. Samuel Neighbi r I think your reasoning sound for the two metals on an equality makes a gospel yoke and easy to bo borne. If you would yoke u goat with au elephant it would be gross Inequality and if you would yoke up two oxeu of equal wait and strength and bind one fast would give lilts mate great advantages over him but no great er than tho single stunrlard has. V hear some men, talk about, in trinsic, value, but we aaj,i tn.Ht i.9 as circumstances make It, for a loaf of bread to a hungry man is worth more than a gold brick or a 100 pbunds of silver, but for money d 8 theigold man wo cannot afford two measures. Woliwho tsaid We could, .we are not seeking that, we are contending for only ope stand ard of two metals; for Instance we call so many grains ,of pure silver equal to one" unit and again we cull so many grams of pure gold equal to one unit.Uhon we placo the mart $i before the unit thus 1 which In dicates that it is one dollar. Or again wo use two ciphers to thef right that are of no value without niunltorlts multiple annexed to the left, why-will not one cipher to the right Indicate 1.00, because it cannot represent more than OOcts. Then If gold Ib worth'tvyo1 upIW to one unit of silver, why not print it $2 or quit using the$ on everything btit a 100 ct dollar. Samuel & Joshua. A Feeler. Hon.

Railroad Humors. iColUmbUB Clttten. ItumorB of a consolidation of tho Hbcking Valley, Ohio Central and Columbus, Sandusky and Hocking loads continue to circulate and many prominent railroad officials are among tho.stnuncli believers in the culmination of tho scheme. A Citizen reporter has talked the matter over with no less than a dozon high offlcluls and finds that a very largo majority firmly be lieve that such a combination will be effected within ninety days, or Just an soon aa the Columbus, Ban- dusky and Hocking receivership is lifteti. Some or these same officials have gone so far as to prophesy who the now officers of the consoli dated company will be, naming Mr. Monsarrat as president, Lonis P. Eckert auditor, Hudson Fitch general freight agent und W. H. Fisher as goneral passenger agent. Of courso this prediction seems very premature, being made before the consolidation is even decided upon, but It is given us they pre djcted simply for what it Is worth. It is claimed that the Ohio law providing ng(iiti8t the consolidation of parallel lines will not effect the proposed combination in the least, but the fact remains that the law did prevent the consolidation of the Big Four und Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton roads a few years ago, despite the talk of maintaining separate organizations under tho consolidation.

'..The outtireak of i lollug ntul incendiarism nt Manila, coupled with a general recognition of the necessity of some immediate legis lation to strengthen the inllltiry ' re sources of the Government, led to the practical acceptance lu the Senate of that compromise measure of Army re organization which the moro cousery atlw leaders hare for the last week boon piepailng to offer In place of the Hull bill. At a conference at the White House, lu which the President and Senators Allison, Hawley, Spoon er, liaiina, Cnttcr and Piatt, of Con necticut, took pait, the conclusion was leached that the urgencies of the situ ation In the Philippines compelled the acceptance of tlie best possible scheme Of Army reorganization which could now be obtained. As both Mr. Coekrell aud Mr. Gorman bad promised to give the Administration all the men and all the ciodlt needed to enforce authority and maintain order In the Philippines, stipulating only that the Incieaso voted should be a temporary one, It Mas decided to abandon the Idea of permanent reorganization, nnd to of fer to tho opposition a measuie ex panding the military establishment for a limited term of years.
