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
'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
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.

Hound City's Loss.
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. Better to spend a short time
at the pritnnries, than to spend hours in
regrettmir thai you railed to do your
duty while others botched the business
tor you.

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
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:

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.

Uentlf.mkj.' in reply to you "call"
lublished in The Skntinf.i. and the
lound City Times of last week.reuuest-
iog me to submit my name to the Re
publican Nominating Convention as n
candidate for the ollice of Prosecuting
Attorney will say, that there is but one
serious objection to this ollice the pay
is insuflicient for the work required, and
the many unpleasant duties connected
with it. 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." Very respectfully.

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

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.

The Weather.
Corrected weekly by William Kaucher,
Justice of the Peace, Oregon, Mo.
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
