THE MONEY QUESTION.
It is doubtful if very many advocates of the gold standard have considered what a radical departure they are taking from the traditions and visa yes of the United Statts on the money question. If the republican parly declares for (fold as the one standard measure of value and redemption money. which it is already committed to do, it will be the first time in the-history of the country that a po litical party declared against silver coinage. Every declara tion ol political parties up to City Director .CITY OFFICIAL!. will force the question to the point by obliging the republi can platfo.'tn to declare for it fair, square and distinct.

The growing influence of the West in national politics is ap parent from a glance at the and including tbe platforms of composition of the House of 1896 on the money question was Representatives of the Fifty- positive for bimetallism. The republican party was not sin'-' cere in when it made the usual pledge to hold out i silver as a money metal under some sort of an international agree ment But the declaration of the part' on that question was adroitly euougtl presented to Convince a great many sincere bimelallists that the election of Mr. McKinley would surely be followed by a wise and consist ent monetary system which would at least oblige the gov ernment to coin enouirh silver sixth Congress.

Hut when the republican party declares-for the gold standard without qualification, which it certainly will be forced by the money powers to do, the issue will be greatly simplified. It will be bimetallism against monometallism without any in tervening "its or ands." This will give the money question very much greater importance! in the campaign than it would have were the .republican party men, the most conspicuous be ing Orosvenorof Ohio.
