Working On n Financial Hill Tlmt Is
Washington, Mnrch 15, 1899.
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

The report that the Attorney

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.

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

The Supreme Court of the United
States recently rendered a decision
In an Ohio case In which it was held
that brewing companies having
warehouses in countieB other than
tlmse in which the breweries are
located must pay tl)e Dow tax. At
torney General Monuett is now re
ceiving lnqniries from the attorneys
for breweries wanting to know
whether the tax will have to be paid
for five years back. It is understood
that? the attorney general will re

its subtlety of plot, in its' cause and

upon u high, artistic level of in

that level up to the terrific, emo

Action .Hastened by the Outbreak
at Manila An Extra Session'
Probably Avoided.
Washington, Mar. '..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.
The compromise scheme, the details
of which was left to the Adjutant-General
of the Army to All out, contempla
tes, In the flrst place, the extension un
til 1002 of the operations of the net of
Apt II last, raising the strength of the
Itegulnr Army to 02,000 men. In the
second place. It authorizes the raising
of a separate provisional army of 33,
000 men to serve for three years, either
natives of Cuba, Porto Woo nnd the
Philippines, or citizens of the United
States, to be enlisted nt the dlsc'tetlou
of the President. It Is believed that
the agreement reached removes nearly
all danger of an extra session.

There me signs also that Agulunldo
himself Is anxious to trent for a ces

sioners arrived under n, flag of truce
fiom Malolos, the headqunrtcrs of

els aie In a chaotic state of fright and
micoitatnty nnd that their leaders are
losing all control over them. Although
they express the belief that Agulnnldo
Is ready to accept pacific overatures,
there Is little likelihood of an oppoi
tiiulty being offered to him. It Is well
understood to bo the policy of Gen,
Otis to require that the first over
tures for n cessation of hostilities shall
come fiom Aguinaldo himself. From
the attitude of the commissioners it Is
evident that these overtures ou the
pait of the Insurgent chief may lie
made at any time.
