SCHNAUFFER, Newport Township, : The Republican Party stands : j for honest money and the chance to earn it by honest toil. : : WILLIAM McKINLEY. Vkkmont has about twice as many savings banks depositors as she has voters, -which is sufficient of itself to account ior her large majority against the proposition to take away from such "idle holders of the idle money," asJIryan called them, one half of the value of their surplus earnings. Globe Democrat, Pkactical tests of b.OOO children in the primary schools of London found more than forty per cent, of them suf fering from defective vision. In Balti more more than 9,000 of the 511,000 school children are found to be similarly affected and in Baltimore the atmos phere is rarely murky, as is chronically the case in London and often the case in Cincinnati. Some other cause than defective light in the school room, the shop worn cause, must, therefore, be as signed for this prevalence of abnormal eyes. What is it? Habits of parents andhabitsof children? Whatinfluence has the food eaten upon the quality of the eyes? Does chronic dyspepsia on the part of the parents produce im paired vision in the offspring? What percentage of Marietta school children suffer from myopia and kindred trou bles? Always Talk The Loudest. A free-coinage advocate was ha ranguing a crowdTon the public square in a noisy way the other evening when a young man pushed his way to the front "May I aBk you a question ?" he asked. "Certainly," said the free-coinage shouter. "How old are you ?" asked the young man. "Sixty-three years," was the reply. "Uow mnch are you worth ?" "Not a dollar." "Just as I expected." Then, turning to the crowd, the young man said: "Here is a man who admits he is sixty- three years old, and that he has never accumulated a dollar, and yet he is try ing to outline to you a financial policy which he thinks the United States Gov ernment should follow." Turning on his heal he walked rap idly away, leaving the crowd to ponder on the object lesson he had given it. Cleveland Leader. . . . .Even if it were true that free coin ageotflixteentoonewouldralse theprice of silver, how would that benefit the great majority of the American people? JSot one person In a thousand owns a si ver mine or has silver bullion for which he wants a higher price. Buteverybody wants to buy silver in the form of man ufactured articles of use ortornament. and therefore wonts it to be as cheap as possible. A scheme for making glass ware or hardware dearer would not : jceivo much favor'from the consumers of those goods. Is1 it at all likely that the jconsumers of silver manufactures are anxious to pay more for. them? From a Great Democrat! A depreciation of the currency is al ways attended by a. loss to the labor lag classes. This portion of the com munity have neither time nor oonor tunlty to watch the ebbs and flows of the money market. Engaged from day to day in their useful tolls, they do not perceive tnat, although their -wages are nominally the same, or oven somewhat higher, they are greatly reduced, in fact, by the rapid increase of currency, which, os It appears to make money aoonna, uiey are not at first Inclined to consider a blessing. Andrew Jackson, taigaux Annual .message. ' ' - - FOR HONEST MONEY. Mr. MoKInley'. Able Disous&lonof the Money Question. No Debasement of Money So Repudiation ot Debt Free Coinage Imperils the Nation's Safety YVorklngraen and Farmers Have most at Stako Good Honey Never Made Hard Time." Maj. McKinley'a letter of acceptance Is as sound as a gold dollar. The fol lowing are some of his best points! What Freo Coinage Mean. The character of the money which shall measure our values and exchanges and settle our balances with one another and with the nations of the world is of such primary importance and so far reaching in Its consequences as to call for tho moslpafnstaking investigation, 'nnl In Kn nYrtl fnJiMMrhnd uitorciudlced judprnent'al IhWoilS Wmuirtnpt be misled, uy pnrases nor upiuucu uyima, theories! Free silver woald'flot.mean tMt iilver dollars wero to be freely liad without cast or labor. It would mean the free use of the mints of the United States for the few who are owners of siher bullion, but would make silver coin no freer to the many who are en gaged in other enterprises. It would not make labor easier, the hours of labor shorter or the pay better. It would not make farming less labori ous or more profitable. It would not start a factory or mulic a demand for an additional day's labor. It would create no new occupations. It would add nothing to tho comfort of the mosses, the capital of the people or the wealth of the nation. It seeks to introduce a new measure of value, but would add no value to tho thing measured. It would not conserve values. On the con trary, It would derange all existing val ues. It would not restore business con fidence, but its direct effect would be to destroy the little which yet remains. The meaning of tho coinage plan adopted at Chicago is that anyone may take a quantity of silver bullion, now worth 53 centa, to the mints of the United States, have it coined at the ex pense of the government-and receive for it a 6llver dollar which shall be legal tender for tho payment of all debts, public and private. The owner of the slUer bullion would get the silver dollar. It would belong to him and nobody else. Other people would get it only by their labor, the products of their land or something of value. The bullion own er, on the basis of presenfcvalucs, would receive the silver dollar for 53 cents worth of silver, and other people would bo required to receive it as a full dollar in the payment of debts. The govern ment would get nothing from the trans action. It would bear the expense of coining the silver, and the community would suffer loss by its use. Silver Dollars Now on a Gold Dasln. Wo have coined since 1878 more than 400,000,000 of silver dollars, which aro maintained by the govern ment at parity with gold and are full legal tender for the payment of all debts, public and private. IIow ore tho siher dollars now in use different from those which would bo in use under freo coinage? They are to be of tho same weight and fineness. They are to bear the same stamp of the gmernment. Why should they not be of the same value? I answer: The silver dollars now in use -were coined on account of the government, and not for private ac count or gain, and the government has solemnly agreed to keep them as good as the best dollars we liave. The gov ernment bought tho silver bullion at its market alue and coined it into silver dollars. Having exclusive control of the mintage, it only coins what it can hold at a parity with gold. The profit, representing the difference between the commercial value of the silver bullion nnd the face value of the silver dollar, goes to the government for the benefit of the people. Farmer and Laborers Would Buffer Most. If there is any one thing which should be free from speculation and fluctuation, it is the money of a country. It ought never to be the subject of mere partisan contention. When we part with our la bor, our products or our property, we should receive in return money which is as stable and unchanging in value as the Ingenuity of honest men can moke it. Debasement of the currency means destruction of values. No one suffers bo much from cheap money aa the farmers nnd laborers. They aro the first to feel its bad effects and the lost to recover from them. This lias been tho uniform experience of all countries, and here as elsewhere. The poor, and not the rich, arc always the greatest sufferers from every attempt to debase our money. It would fall with alarming severity upon investments already made, upon insur ance companies and their policy holders, upon savings banks and their deposit ors, upon building and loan association members, upon tho savings of thrift, upon pensioners and their families, and upon wage-earners and the purchasing power of their wages. 1 ' Good Money Never Made Hard limes." It is mere pretense to attribute the hard times to the fact that all our cur rency is. on a gold basis. Good money never made hard times. Those who as sert that our present industrial and financial depression is the result of tho gold standard have not read American history aright or been carelul students of the evunts of recent years. We never had greater prosperity in this country, in every field of employment and indus try, than in tha busy years from 1880 to 1892, during all of which time this country was on a gold basis and em ployed more gold money in its fiscal and business operations than eer before. Worst of All Misfortunes. The great trouble, about repudiation is that you cannot pay debts with it more than once. In other words, it in volves the crucifixion of credit on a cross of rascality, and the loss of credit is the worst of misfortunes.

Oil Notes. The Wolf Creek Oil Company, of Bev erly, have contracted with Keever & Dyar for drilling a test well back of that town on Wolf Creek. Tho rig for the B. F. Veach & Co., well in Hendershot was finished the first of the week and drilling was be gun Wednesday evening. This is tho second well started since the Hender shot No. 4 came in about two weeks ago, the first being the Kelly & Brobly well which has been drilling now for over a week. The Veach well is about 200 yards from the Hendershot A largo number of rigs are being put and others are being started daily. The Lubeck Oil Co's. well at Cairo was tubed yesterday evening. Otto Lehman, who was out superintending tho work, returnpd on the accomoda tion last night. The indications when' ho left the well were that it would im prove in production. Lehman left for Cairo again this morning and will have the tract on which the well is located surveyed, in order that proceedings may be taken against the Clark Oil Co., who have built a rig and will drill a well on their line. Parkersburg Sen tinel. At the same time the big deal of the Snyder Oil Co. was consummated, an other deal of much importance was closed. Mr. U. S. Snyder, of the Sny der Oil Co., purchased individually, the land and the leases thereon amounting to 40 acres, of A. Boomhower for a round sum in four figures. This terri tory is located in the Hendershot field and adjoins the famous Hendershot well. A well is already down a con siderable distance on the tract and will be drilled in at once by the new owner. The papers and legal instru ments in this extenslye deal were drawn up in the office of Miller & White which firm have been kept busy all this week. Parkersburg Journal. Mr.W.H.Roeser returned Friday from a business visit of several days at Corn ing and Glouster. He reports that Roeser Bros, and the Philadelphia Oil Company have two new rigs at Glous ter and will start another at Corning next week. The two big gas wells re cently drilled at Glouster have been packed, tubed and shut in and arrange ments are being made to supply tho town with fuel. At the head of tho Island, on the West Virginia side, the rig is up for a new well to be drilled by CoL Redie and others. 'Spudding will begin Mon day.

Mr.'IIobmrt Snows Why Oold.ls the Malt Standard of Values. In his lettcrnccep'tuig tho republican nomination for vice president Hon-. Gar ret A. Hobort said : "The money standard of a great na tion should be as fixed and permanent as thq nation Itself. To secure, and re tain tho best should be the desire of every right-minded citizen. Rcstlngon stable foundations, continuous and un varying certainty of value should be its distinguishing characteristic. The experience, of all history confirms the truth that every coin, mado under any law, howsoever that coin may be stamped, will finally command In the markets of the world the exact value of the materials which compose it. The dollar of our country, whether of gold ,or silver, should be of tho full value of 100 cents, and by so much as any dollar tis worth less than this in the market by precisely tnat sum will some one ue de frauded, "The necessity of a certain and fixed money valuefbctwecnnatkjnsj as vj-cl as individuals has grown out of; tho in terchange of commodities', the trade and business rclatlonshipwhich'haVearfse'n ainong"fhe peoples of tile world, W-lth the enlargements of human wants and the broadening of human interests. This necessity bus made gold the final standard of all enlightened nations. "If we are to continue to hold out place among the great commercial na tions, wo must cease juggling with this question and make our honesty of pur pose clear to tho world. No room should be left for misconception as to the 'meaning of the language used lit the bonds of the government not yet ma tured. It should not be possible for any party or individual to raise a question as to the purpose of tho country to pay all Its obligations in the best form of money recognized by the commercial world. "Any nation which Is worthy of credit ,or confidence can afford to say explicit ly on a question eo vital to every in terest what It means when such mean ing is challenged or doubted. It is de sirable that we-should make ifcknown at once and authoritatively that an 'hon est dollar' means any dollar equivalent to a gold dollar of tho present standard of weight and fineness."
