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
will force the question to the
point by obliging the republi
can platfo.'tn to declare for it
fair, square and distinct. The
