El fm, Ttui, CHAMP CLARK ON REPUBLICAN MONEY. 'The financial bill passed by this congress is the most mon strous measure ever placed on the statutes. It is sometimes called the Overstreet bill, but it should be called the "Atlantic City bill," because it was concocted there in vacation by a corterie of republi can magnates in secret conclave. Injny mind Atlantic City is the poorest place m America 10 ascer- tain the settled, sober cause of the American people. That bill not only established the gold standard, which the re- publican party never promised, ' but it retired the greenbacks, and let me say that if the republican party had promised to retire the greenbacks there never would have been a republican congress to enact such a law and there never would have been a republi can president to sign such a mea sure. I will not argue the greenback question, I have simply this to say There never has been a war waged by our country in which the greenback did not give us the victory, anu 11 me green imins -1 .1 ; r a,. . 1... ' were good enough in the civil war to induce our people to leave their homes, their wives and lit- tie children to risk their lives on a thousand battlefields in the de fense of their country, then it ought to be good enough for gen tlemen who make their living by reclining in the shade of Wall street, clipping gold coupons off coin bonds. If the greenbacks were not good money then as a nu tter of common decency we owe it to the old soldiers even at this late day to pay them the diffence between gold and green backs from 1861 to 1865. By the Atlantic City bill con gress advocated the paramount function of government the money making function and turned it over to an association of national bankers, a function too vast and too dangerous fo be given to any citizen or corpora tion. That system broadens the money question and puts it on a higher plane on which Andrew Jackson fought Nicholas Diddle and the old bank of the United States, and as he conquered in the thirties so will we conquer under the leadership of the great Nebraskan. I repeat that while we maintain j these mountains, he saw the dc our position of 18 in favor of j composed remains of several men the free and unlimited coinage of ' ?Jlu'l!;d.to in thc roper letter, ami A A, A. ,., that it is common talk at East- gold and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, without waiting for the con sent of any other nation on earth, the republicans have changed theirs and have changed it radi cally. I do not have to make assertions or quote democrats to show that we are right on the money question. I will quote you a republican of the highest degree. Certainly republicans ought to believe each otner lor nobody else will believe them. My republican witness says: "I am for largest use of silver in the currency of this country. I would not dishonor it. I would give it equal credit with gold. I would make no discrimination. I would use both metals as money and discredit neither. I want the double standard." These potent words, that were flatly spoken are like apples of gold in pictures of silver. They are clear and unmistakable in their meaning. Now my repub- lican friends, who are engaged in the condemned business of wor- , the force of his powder, and un shiping the golden calf, what or- less sufficient money can be pro ator and statesman do you sup- . duccd to pay an exacting ransom, pose made that forcibledeclaration in favor of silver, which I have just quoted? It wasn't Silver Dick Bland, God bless him. It was a man who you delight to hon or. Don't all fall off your seats in a fit ofappoplexy when I tell his name. It was the head man of the republican pie counter, William McKinley, president of the United Stated, now running for re-election on the republican ticket, on a gold standard plat form after signing a gold stand ard bill. He is the man who said it. He said it on he floor of the American congress. It is so j,rnted the KeCord ldonv :t These word You can't ords were spok- en by Wm. McKinley, your idol, 1 with front of brass and feet of clayspoken bv hm whiic he was yct free anj before he had fallcn umler the ma1;gn influencc f M . , his f j of political buccaneers. What is more, McKinley in addition to s-reakug in favor of silver, voted for it and voted for it repeatedly. He voted for the original Dland silver bill, which was a bill for the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver at 16 to 1. He voted for the Bland bill with the Allison amendments, and when Rutherford B. Hays vetoed the Bland-Allison bill, Wm. McKin- j voted to pass it over the Hayes veto, which was the no blest act of his public rareer." MURDER AND RAPINE Of MANZANO DESPERADOES. A communication to the Albu querque Citizen gives the follow ing history of the gang of des perate characters rendezvousing in a pass of the Manzano moun tains: On August 1st the Citizen published a communication from Ada Roper, from Eastview, Val- encia countv, etving some facts about half a dozen murders which had been committed in the Man zano mountains, by a gang of horse thieves whose rendezvous is in Alio pass, and by a similar gang living at Talica and Man zano. Not only murders have been committed, but the gangs have absolutely impoverished the small ranch and stock owners by prc sistently stealing their horses, cattle and sheep, and still these desperadoes go unpunished. 1 hese crimes, which have been going on in the Manzano moun tains for years, have been con firmed on many occasions, but a Mexican gentleman who arrived in the city yesterday, and who called at this office to substanti- ate the truth of the Roper com munication, states positively that on his trip the other day through view, among those who dared not report these crimes, that re cently two white men and an In dian were held up, robbed and shot by these desperadoes. Our informant warns American miners and prospectors, and others, who go to look up ranch property, to steer clear of the Abo pass in the Manzano moun tains, for crime is rampant and the murderers have no resnect for j art. or youth." rin.-ohi .-onntv i,flFor..il ! reat ossc8 from the ra;(s aml i high-handed deviltry of these Manzano vampires for years, and ' they continue to drive away the j sheep, cattle and horses of our I ranchmen to this hell-infected district, where they defy arrest and mock the ranchman who asks for the return of his prop erty. The Alcalde, who is one of the vermin himself, reigns su preme on a self-erected throne, over the destinies of the Manzano district, and the Caucasian who unfortunately falls a victim to trial in hir, court is lucky to miss the prisoner's sentence is in most leases transportation ocross thc Great Divide. GRAN QUIVIRA'S HIDDEN TREASURE. One of the curious things in this curious world is the effort of an aged woman, blind and penni less, to locate the legendary treas ure at the ruins of the Gran Quivira, situated about two days' drive from this city. The wo man is the widow of an old sold ier named Corbin, who some live years ago squatted on 160 acres of government land which in cludes the ruins. Corbin and his wife lived in a tent in this city and for years kept up a fruitless search for the supposed treasure. Then they left for a time, and Corbin died and Mrs. Corbin re turned here. Three years ago the old lady appeared on the scene alone and pitched her tent near the ruins. She claimed to have a map drawn by her hus band, showing the probable loca tion of the chest ot gold and Spanish jewelry which she sought to unearth. There is no water in the region for miles around, and she arranged with a herder boy to bring her wood and water, and managed to keep a scant sup ply of provisions on hand through the generosity of E. A. Dow, the general merchant, and others, re siding near Tajibue. She had cords attached to the tent and fastened to stakes set here and there about the ruins so as to enable her, notwithstanding her blindness, to roam about the ruins, using the chords as a guide to retrace her steps. Of late a Mr. Kleber, who lives on one of the Dow ranches, has been sending her water by his, j herder boy, and not long sinct she was found away out on the prairie completely lost and mysti tied as to her location. She said she had set out to reach Albu querque or Santa Fe to organize a company with $1,200 capjtal stock, a sum necessary fqr car rying forward her researches at the ruins. On this trip she had a bottle of water, a saw and a pistol. 1?hc herder boy conduct ed her back to her tent and noti fied Mr. Dow, who sent a team and conveyed her to this city, where she attempted to secure funds by giving lectures. Be coming a burden on the charita bly inclined, the Benevolent As sociation purchased her a ticket to Colorado Springs, where she claimed to have friends who wauld advance the necessary money and send a guide with her to the ruins of the Gran yuivira. Citizen. LINCOLN COUNTY TIED AKIN TO KENTUCKY. El Capitán gives the following account of a family war which has been raging between two factions of youngsters in south em Lincoln county: "In the justice's court on Sat urday, Arch Parker, aged 13, and Young and Gus Barrett, aged respectively 17 and 11, were each placed under a $100 peace bond for six months, the fathers of the boys being sureties. The trouble was that the boys were continually fighting among them selves, and about two weeks ago thc Parker boy caught the small er of the Barrett boys and slit both his ears with a knife, threat ening to cut them off the next time he caught him. A short time later Young Barrett, on horseback, chased the Parker boy through the yard of Mr. Watkins, running over his little child and injuring it so badly that it has been unable to walk, though it is now getting better. ( Mr. Watkins made thc complaint upon which thc peace bonds were made."
