Blaine and Silver. The Altgeld-Tillm an combine journals have recently been publishing what purported to be the expressions of the late Secretary Blaine on the silver ques tion. He is quoted as unconditionally opposed to the gold standard, and it is made to appear that Mr. Blaine would have repudiated the St. Louis platform were ho alive today. Many or these journals quote from a speech claimed to have been delivered by him in 1SS0, but the facts are Mr. Blaine made no speech on the financial question in 1SS0, and the publications wilfully misrepresent. The matter published by these jour nals, however, are found in his speech delivered in the EC-nato in February 1S78, and these quotations alone, make it appear that the Maine statesman was a rabid anti-gold man, but when read in the order in which they appear in the nest, the dishonesty of the authors of these articles appear. The senate had under consideration a bill to authorize the free coinage of the standard silver dollar and to restore its legal tendercharacter. In the opening of hisspech Mr. Blaine used the foltow ing language, which is used by these papers and journals: "No power was conferred on congress to declare that either metals should be money. Congress has, therefore, in my judgment, no power to demonetizer sil- ver any more than to uernonettzo nolu; no puwur to ilemontize either any moro than to (lemoueti.o both. Few er6or.B L-iin bo found. I apprehend, who will inuiiituiu that congress possesses the power to demonetize both cold and sil ver, or Unit congress could be jusliliod in piohibitini; tint coning,) of both; itnd yet i.) lt:e and legal contitructiuu it would b dilhuull to show where; and why now t-.of tlu rongresB oyer silver is irreater than jver-i.ild -renter over either than over the Uv;i. If. therefore, silver has been demonetized, I am in favor of re Kionetiziiii: it. If its coinage ha been prohibited. I am in favor of ordering it to bo trsuuiexi. If it has been ret'tnet ed. I am m favor of havini' it enlarged." lieiid by itself this appears to be a pretty Mrong demuuuiation of the ac tion of i;on;resri, smacking btrougly of the "criini of .i order, but in the very next paragraph, which the popocratiu joumaU are careful to omit, Mr. Iilaine Earn: 'Hiivveier men may differ about c;ius- anil prices, all will admit that wit inn a few years a great disturbance has l.'tket: place in the relative values of gold and silver, and that silver is lefas or gold is worth more in the money markets or tiie world in IhiS than in 1ST:I, when the further coinage of silver dollars was prohibited in this congress. To remonetize it now as though the facts and circumstances of that day were surrounding us, is to wilfully and blindly deceive ourselves. If our de monetization were the only cause for the decline in the value of silver then remuneration would be its proper and effectual cure. Hut other causes be yond our control have been far more potentially operative than the simple fact of congress prohibiting its further coinage; and as legislators we are bound to take cognizance of these causes, lue demonetization of silver in the great German empire and the consequent partial, on well nige complete, suspen sion of coinage in the governments of the Latin Union have been the leading dominant causes for the rapid decline in the value of silver." Mr. Iilaine then gave his reasons why tho remonetization of silver is impracli cal, aud was so unpatriotic as tc base his objections on the non concurence and want of co-operation of the Euro nean nations: "By our line of policy, in a joint move ment with oilier nations, to remonetize is very simple and very direct. The dif licult problem is, what we shall do when we aim to re establish silver without a co operation of European powers, and really as an advance movement to coerce them there into the same policy. Evidently the hrst dictate of prudence 3 to com such a dollar as will not- only do justice among our citizens at home, but will prove a protection, an absolute barricade, against the gold monome- tullists of Europe who, whenever the op portunity olleis, will quickly draw from us the 8100,000,000 of gold coin still in our midst. And if we coin a silver dol lar of full legal tender, obviously below the current value of the gold dollar, we are opening wide our doors and inviting fcjurope to take our gold. And with our cold Howing out from us we are forced to the single silver standard, and our relations with the leading conimerc lal countries of the world are at once embarrassed and crippled." The above paragraph is also omitted by these journals that have been 60 anxious tn prove that Mr. DIatne was a great advocate of free silver. They might nlso have stated that at the tune of the delivery of this speech by Mr. Blaine tho silver contained in a silver dollar was worth 02 cents in gold, in stead of u2 cents, as now. v arther on m this speech Mr. lilaino said: "At current rates of silver, the free coinage of n dollar containing -V grains worth in gold about D2 cents. giyes an illegituato prolit to the owners of the bullion, enabling him to take 02 cents worth of it to the mint and get it stamped as coin and force his neighbor to take it for a full dollar. This is an undue and unfair advantage which the government has no right to give to the owner of silver bullion, and which de frauds the man who is forced to take the dollar." If Mr. Blaine thought it a fraud to compel the farmer, the labor ing man, etc., to take a dollar worth in purchasing power only 08 cents what would ho think of the gang who today wants this class of people to be com pel led to take a 53 cents dollar for 100 cents? The above paragraph was also omit ted by these popocratic journals. There were many others ilso stricken out, and the speech eo clumsily doctored that, in reality :t is acting as a boomerang. How nice it would be if these popo listic journals would quote from the speech made by Nevada's able senator, Air. Stewart, which he made in feoru ary 1874, in which he said: 'Ily tins process wo liull come to tipei-ie iKisia.and when tiie laboring man receives a dollar it will Iiuve the purchasing power ufii dollar, anil lie n III not be railed upon toilouhat is impossible for liim tn do figure upon the exchange figure upon the fluctuations, figure upon the gambling in New York. Itut lie ill know what money is wcrtli. Cold In the universal Ktaildard or the world. Kveryliody kunnrx what dollar in gold Is worth .' Let us do as all the world lias i; been tioiug from the be. ginning,! measure our values by gold.' Senator Log-as asked Mr. Stewart the fcl lowing ooeslion: "What does the senator v:iii t?" to which he replied. "I want tin- standard gold, and no paper 'money not redeemable in gold.-' Debtor and Creditor. There is an eroucous impression widely prevalent that sound money is somehow in the special interest of the banks and against that of their patrons and the general public. Jt is true that most of the bankers favor the best sort of money and are opposed to schemes of inflation and depreciation; but this is not because they have more to gain than any other class of citizens by maintain mg the present system, l iieir relation to the matter is not aloue that of credit ors, seeking to prevent the payment of debts in a cheapened form cf circula tion. They we large sums of money themselves, nnd could make a great prolit by tho chance to pay such obliga tions with currency oi iuss value man that which is now required lor the pur pose. What is to prevent any cashier from taking $Ti,000 of his depositors' money, exchange it and get 10i000 Mexican dollars, have the same put into bullion an J have the same coined at the United States mints into 10.000 United States dollars, and pay $10,000 of his hn bihties that has cost hi in on an original investment of but to,000. The bankers of Holt county, accord ing to their oilicial statements published in April hud, aro indebted to the people to the extent of $141,872 in the form of deposits- and 6202,0Tn in the form of capital stock, bills payable, etc., without one single exception we believe, declare themselves in favor of honeot money, or opposed to the free coinage of silver, based on the highest standard known to the sisterhood of nations. In other words, as legards debtors, thev declare against cheap and dishonest inonev, not withstanding the manifest advantage tnat it would be to them in the Inunda tion of their indebtedness. The average citizen who is disposed to let himself be deluded by the free silver orators should make a carelul study of the nspsct of the question. It istoun destand that the substitution of poor money for good money would at once lessen the value of every bank deposit, bank stock, life-insurance policy and pension check. The aggregate amount of such debts in the United States rep resent a large portion of the wealth and investment of the country, and the creditors, as in Holt county includo all elements of the population. A policy calculated to diminish the purchasing power of the currency is calculated nlso to diminish in hko measure the value of all of those claims by the people upon the bunV-Riind similar institutions. That i9 to say, it is impossible to provide a cheajier way for the people to pay what they owe without at the same time pro viding a cheaper way for the payment of what is owing to them. The thing is bound to work both ways. There can not be one kind of money for tho use of one class of debtors, and another kind for the use of another clnes. If all the people of Holt county were debtors, with nothing to their credit in the ba iks, in the sum approximating a million dollars, mil other corporate ugeuciesol business and prosperity, it might do for them tn fnvtir depreciated curreucy; but the ac tual situation is such that they stand to lose more than they could possibly gain. They have the interest of creditors aa well as or debtors in the matter; and when this fact is soberly considered by an intelligent citizen, he is sure to make up his mind that he cannot auord to vote for free coinage of silver, or any other money-cheapening process.

About 8 o'clock Saturday evening last, July 25, 1800, fire broke out in the four story building f the Mound City Mill Company's plant in that city .The (ire spread rapidly. The big elevator owned by the company which contained about twelve thousand bushels of wheat was destroyed. Owing to the location of the mill on the south side of the K. C. and C. li. tracks tho lire company way un able to reach either the mill or the elevator, but played on the numerous corn cribs neur the mill which were saved. The mill property is a total loss together with 250 cords of wood, which is all estimated at $30,000. The plant was owned by a Mound City stock company and was n new mill and was equipped with the latest machinery. The mill was one of the best roller mills in the state. Cause- of the tiro is sup pose to be combustion. Attend Your Primaries. See to it, fellow citizens, chat every Republican attends the primaries to be held in the various townships on tomor row, August 1, and that none but repre sentative men are selected as delegates to the county convention which meets in this city on the following Thursday, August fl. The interest of every man, woman and child in the county isenrapt and identified with Republican success in this county at the coming election, although they may not clearly see it. To be worthy of success it behooves the party to put forward no candidate who will not readily bear the strongest test of honesty nnd capability, nnd if every Kepublican participates in the primaries, nnd does his share in seeing only re pre scntntive men elected as delegates, the result will be a representative ticket, of which none will be ashamed or hesitate to support.

WAKEtiKV, tJ. 1. A., VLVE IIOVEY, St. Louie, Mo. Agent, Forest City, Mo. Another Object Lesson. The Mound City News last week seems to have lieen struck by a left-handed and cross-eyed spell of the jim jams. It flies into a rage and yelps like a houud struck by a etone. It accuses the Ore gon correspondent of the St. Joseph Herald of being "unscrupulous and un fair," and says that the reason Oregon could not sell her water-works bonds was not the silver agitation, but because the town was so smnll and the rale of interest so low 5 per cent; and that the article was written for political ef fect, etc. Now, we are net the Herald corres pondents' defender in fact, we do not know whom said correspondent is, but we infer from his numerous writing.that he is quite able to take care of himself especially when piltied against the edi tor ol the News. But, for the facts: Our city otlicers are in possession of numerous letters from bond buyers enquiring whether or not our bonds were to be payable in gold and invariable, when informed that gold was not spoken of m the bonds, such tirms have refused to furth er consider any proposition from our board. As for the bonds bearing to low a rate of interest to be marketable we have but to say that numerous towns in Mis eouri not so large as Oregon and not so wealthy sold 5 per cent bond9 readily, and at a premium, before the silver agi tation began. One town that we re mem ber of that sold 5 per cent bonds at a premium but a few months before Oro- gon voted hers was Unionville, Mo., the county seat of Putnam county. Union ville is not nearly so large as Oregon and not so wealthy and she sold 5 per cent water-works bonds at a premium no longer ago than last r ebruary. lioi- den, Mo., voted water works bonds at about the same time Oregon did, and because her bonds were not made paya ble in gold, she could not sell them, and still can not sell them. And all the members of the board at Holden are not Republicans either at least, so we aro told. What has the News to say to the Holdes people? Will it call anyone who speaks of the condition at Hokton "tin scrupulous and unfair." The editor of this paper was at Spring held last week to the state convention. and there we met Mr. li. II. Bonfooy, of Unionville, Mo., and, unsolicited, he showed us a letter from the hrm to whom they had sold their bonds, and we took a copy or it winch mattes right gxu reading in this connection, and which we append below. Ve will say however. that he told us that th-j company had paid $5,000 down in cash at the time the uouds were sold, and that the balance ($18,000) was tc have been paid in in stallments of 85,000 each from tune to tune as the work progressed. The com pany had fnllen behind in their pay ments nnd the appended letter was writ ten in answer to one of Mr. Bonfoey's urgent requests for more funds to oe sent to Unionville and n.oreot the bonds taken up from time to time as agreed. The letter is as follows: Ci.KVEi.ANri. Ohio. July 17, 18. H. II. Bosfokv Eso., Unionville, Mo. Dkau Sik: Your favor of the 11th inst. received. In reply, permit us to say, that as a result of the silver ngita tion and strong free silver sentiment in Missouri, the market for bonds of muni cipalities, in that stnte, has been utterly destroyed, for the present. And, im a consequence, we regret to say that wo can not take up the remainder of the Unionville bonds just now. We have been unable to sell, at any price, the 85,000 wo paid for. We therefore suggest that the taking up of the remainder be left in nbeyance for awhile, until the financial atmosphere clears up a little and m attorn settle. Respectfully Yours, W. J. Hayes & Sons. In the light of this lotter will the News claim that Messrs. Hi.yoa & Sons, nro unscrupulus and unfair. The Coming Convention. -s a party, ine policy of winch is based on the intelligence of its individ uni memoers, ine itepuoncan party in this county will be subjected to n good deal of public scrutiny in connection with the work in the coming comity convention. It is as n deliberative body that that convention must present itself to the public judgment and observation, rather than as an agreggation of contend ing factions. Delegates may or may not have their individual preferences, but they are expected to give expression to those preference moderately, intelligent ly and with direct reference to the suc cess of their party tnd the best interests of the county. Men may go into that convention pledged to this man or that. Hut in going in they should carry with them the retlection that more important than the fate of any candidate is the success of that candidate, nt tho polls and the good government, under the party's auspices, of the county. De liberation rather than passion, though rather than temper iood will rather than prejudice should characterize the coming county convention. Xo man whose candidate is the position, when the convention has adjoured, that he feels it inconsistent with his regard for good gsvernment for his party or for his candidate to givo the fullest support to the nominee. Let us have candidates who represent the expression of individual preferences and who win also represent the expres sion of individual and aggregate judg ment. It should be born in mind that the Republican party is and alwnys has been the exponent of good goyernment. That the principles of the party are that good men ahull ue placed in nlHce. The delegates compassing the convention next Thursday are to name a ticket which is to ba the criterion by which the party will be judged by a large body of voters who are for good men in ofhee, They should remember that muck de pends upon the leaders of the ticket. Uns the people have confidence in the men who are at tho head of the ticket they will not vote it. " Wo must have a ticket deserving; of success if we would have vistory. We trust and hope that every dele gate will act well his part for there the honor lies. Our Standard Bearers. The Republicans of Missouri can con gratulate themselves a9 they separated at the close of their state convention for 1890, that no -.natter what their personal preferences were or how much momentary disappointment some of them may feel, they have selected a thoroughly respectable, thoroughly rep resentative and thoroughly Republican ticket. The contest over some of the offices wns sharp and prulonged.but such struggles leave no wounds in the bodies of Republicans. Tho ranks arenlieady closed and the lines are already formed for one of the liveliest and most aggress ive campaigns the party has ever con ducted in grand old Missouri. They declared in no mistakable terms their abiding faith in a tariff that will raise sullicient revenues to enable the goyernment to pay its bills 100 cents on the dollar, and in the present standard. the money of the. commercial world, and the real measuring values, no matter where in civilization. The ticket nominated is one that com mends itself to every honest citizen of Missouri, no matter what his peculiar political principles. XSo matter how much men may differ regarding political policy or q ties t ions of internal adminis tration in Missouri, no man can sincere ly question the personal integrity of the men who have been chosen to lead the Republican party of the state. Are vn iniieachable in character nnd stand for the best nnd purest in public life in this great state. The great convention at Springfield was the presage to a great victorv in iovomuer. As in 1892 Holt county 19 again hnnnreil in hnvim? a rjlnoe unon the tick et in the person of Hon. John Kenniuh, who was unanimously cnosen as the nominee for Attorney General. As in this case so with every nominee upon the ticket against whom the slightc-st objection can be urged; not one who wouIJ not worthily fill the place to which he aspires. In 1S02 The Skntinf.i. hitched its tow line to Hon. II. T. Al kire nnd he was nominated for Secre tary of State. In 1890 we did the same for John Kennish, and b is placed upon the ticket for Attnrney-lieueral. Mr. Knowles Accepts. Oregon. Mo.. Julv 27. 189G. A. S. Smith, E. A.

However, 1 have concluded lo submit my name as a candidate to the convention, and in doing so I am largely inlluenced by my long acquaintance nnd pleasant relations with many of the pe titioners, and by the high character of all of tho persons whose names appear to the published ''call," as well as by the many requests from persons outside of this "call."

In the year looO she came with her parents to Holt countv, where she was married to Martin L. Ebert. July 20th. 187.'!. Since then they have lived in this county with the exception or n few years rest dence in Nebraska. Last winter during Rev. A. E, Flickinger's revival meetings. she with her husband and six oldest children, joined the church. She Iiiih been a severe sufferer for some years, which ended in her death. She was a kind, patient wife and mother. The last few days her sufferings were intense.but patient with occasional outbursts of praise to God which chiered the end of her lite, nnd was a means or great com fort to the weeping family and friends Shortly before she died she called nil the family together and told them she was going home, requesting all to be good und meet her in heaven. Her age was A years 1 month and days. She was the mother of 8 children nnd .'! step children. Funeral services were conducted by the writer from James -1:14. "For what ts your life, Tho number who attended the funeral was an indication of the esteem in which she was held by her ueigubors. Tho small children have a kind father, broth ers ami sisters to care for them. She was buried iu the Xickell's (irovechurch cemetery Tuesday afternoon nt about 5 o'clock. J. H.

Tiie meeting ndjourned subject to I no call 01 the oxecutive committee. Usi.i--ss new phases enter to chnngo the situation, Hon. George Crowther will bo nominated by acclamation at the congressional convention to be held next month. Such a nomination would be a titling and deserved compliment to Mr, (Jrowthor. it would also display a un animity of purpose on the part of Re publicans in this district Mint would bring no comfort to tho opposition. Mr Crowther has served his constituency in a manner eminently satisfactory to all. lie is conversant with the needs of his district and devoted to ila inter ests. His acknowledged ability, legisla tiye experience und extensive acquaint ance have given him an intluonce at Washington that will bo felt for the districts good. The unprecedented ma jority by which he was elected two years ago, is evidence of his strength. This was id no degree weakoned by his emin ent service in congress. Republicanism will prolit by his candidacy this year, we hope Holt county will fellow the ex ample set by her sister counties of Noda way and Andrew and instruct her dele gation for Mr. Crowther. TheSkntiki, has taken the pains to interviews farmers from all parts ol the county as to the sentiment in their neighborhoods in regard to tho money queston.

Corrected weekly by William Kaucher, Justice of the Peace, Oregon, Mo. rtCfcCII'ITATIOil Rain Snow The rain fall of the past week waa just right to benefit growing crops. Corn is doing tine, of course there are some ex ceptions as there always are where indo lence sickness or other causes has pre vented the work needed to enable the crop to do well, the weather has been sultry nnd for that reason unpleasant. Wednesday was probably the most dis agreeable day of the season the tempera ture was 93 degrees that the only differ ence during the warm season is about 20 degrees during the middle of the day. Destructive storms have occurred in different parts of the country. A cloud burst destroyed the lives ot 10 persons, on Benson Creek near Frank fort, Ky., on the 21s'. On the same day the worst storm ever known occurred along the Kaunha Valley in West Va., destroying a number of lives and many thousands of dollars of property. On the 23d soutwest Ohio waa destroyed by destructive rains; all streams were out of their banks and there was great dam age done to crops on the bottom lands. On the 24th 33 persons were drowned by cloud bursts on Bear Creek, Colorado. The railroad was almost obliterated. One of the worst storms ever known occurred along the Monongehala Valley which overflowed its banks, destroying; many lives and an immense amount of property. Pittsburg and Allegheny City were overflowed and great d is trees pre vails. The loss is placed at $1,500,000. A tornado doing great damage oc curred at Sydney, Ohio on the 29th, and another at Huntingdon, Indiana, on the same day. A damaged hail storm oc curred at Montpelier, Indiana, on the 28th and a very destructive storm at Portis in Central Kansas, on the 29tb. Many minor storms are reported. Mrs. H. A.
