Our Financial Piank.
The Republican party is unreservedly for sound money. It caused the enact ment of the law providing for the resump tion of specie payments in 1879: since then every dollar has been as good as gold. We are unalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase our currency, or impair the credit of our country. We arc, therefore, opposed to a free coinage of silver except by inter national agreement with the leading com mercial nations of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, and until such an agreement can be obtained the existing gold standard must be preserved. All our silver and paper currency must oe maintained at parity witii gold, and we favor all measures designed to main tain inviolably the obligation of the united States and our money, whether coin or paper, at their present standard, the standard of the most enlightened nation; 01 the earth. Palmer and Buckner. The National Democracy id thier con vention at Indianapolin on Wednesday of this week, selected Senator John M. Palmer, of Illinois, as their candidate for president and Simon Bohver Buck ner, of Kentucky, for vice piesident, wo wtme imireu veterans or the war, rival commanders of tiie blue aod the gray. Tho convention was highly represen tative in its character, nearly OCO dele gates being present, and some 4T states and territories being represented. The platform was brief but emphatic, which repudiated the doctrines enun ciated by the Chicago convention, en dorsed Cleveland and his udminiatrn lion, declared for h gold standard, and tariff for revenue only, currency reform, civil service arm economy in public ex penuitures. I he spirit animating tho convention was contained in this do claration of the platform: "The Demo cratic party ha9 survived many defeats, but it could not survive a victory won in oenair or tiie cloi.tr.ao and policy prt claimed in its name at Chicago." Nearly 40,000 Majority. Ihe Vermont state election last lueeday, Sep. 1, was over whelmingly Repubhcan. Democratic vote scarcely half that cast in 1892. Tho result of Tuesday's election shows that the nnan cial fallacies of the I'opocratic party are utterly repudiated in rsew England The free silver leaders had acknowl edged that the business men of the east were opposed to overturning the finan cial system of the country, but claimed that the leaven hud been working for a long lime nniong the tillers of the soil and that they were going to declare their faith at tho recent election. And they certainly did. The farmers of Ver mont believe in an honest dollar one is worth 100 cents wherever they want to spend it. They believe that honesty tne oest policy, not only in common business attain, but in governmental affairs as well, and that the United States should obey both the spirit and letter of the law in meeting its just obli gations. They have proclaimed their faith in McKinley and sound money. .ma mis teeiing is prevailing all over the country. The significance of this victory should not bo underestimated. An increase of uOpercent in t je Republican majority of that state rae:ns something in this era of proposed intlation nnd financial horny. The most sanguine estimate made by eastern papers as to the result was about 25,003 majority, and if it went to 30,000 or over, it ivould be of national signifiance. Attacking the Supreme Court. This campaign is to be rendered no torious, it appears, by the circulation of any number of falsehoods by the free silver conspirntors. One of them is the story that James G. Blaine was in fayor of free and unlimited coinage of silver at 1G to 1. This The Scntinel has refuted by quoting Mr. Blaine's celebrated speech upon the subject. Now cemes another: The plank in the Popocrat Chicago platform assailing the supreme court has been received with such dis favor that the lie has been started that the move to pack that body in order to obtain decisions favorable to a certain class, has several precedents, which is another lie made out of whole cloth. These fellows who always harp on such stuff never produce a record for such as sertions they are simply lies, and they reneat and they repeat them. The numbe. of supreme judge3 in states, as in Missouri, were increased in number, but never for a political end that we ever heard of; only to expedite and clean up the accumulating dockets. The Kansas City and St. Louis courts of appoal were created for this purpose, and we never beard it charged tnat ihey were created or to be packed, in order to secure a decision contrary to one that had previously been rendered. This is imperative, in any system of popular government, for a supreme tri bunal, from whose decision there can be no appeal, and moreover no formal dis sent. There must be n way of puttin" a quietus on things. The supreme court has this function. If its decision, id accordance with the constitution 13 un just, the remedy lies in constitutional amendment, not in partisan warfare on the court for doing its duty, nnd not ns is proposed under the Bryan regime, the life tenure to be abolished and Federal judgos to be selectod solely with refer ence to their opinions, ascertained in ad vance, concerning the mast important questions of law. Harrison's Great Speech. Two years ago the most important and most effectiye speech anywhere made in the national congressional cam paign was the only one made by ox President Harrison in a monster meet ing in the city of New York. The echo of that speech was heard in every city, town, village, and upon every farmstead in this broad land of ours, and wes like a trumpet call to the Republicans of tl3 nation to battle. Ex-President Harrison hi J again emerged from the privacy of his ordi nary life, and at another monster of the citizens of New York, nnd in the pres ence of the entire country, has again sounded a charge to battle in behalf of honest money nnd American industry nnd American labor. The speech of Gen. Harrison in Curnegie hall in New York last week is an unanswerable re sponse to tho deiuugogism that would, if in power, debase and destroy the wages of American) labor, cripple tho power of American man to earn n living, completely turn over the Ameri can market to foreign producers nnd eventually beggar the honest and in dustrious laborers of the United States. This great speech should be carefully read and studied nnd pondered at every Americnn fireside before the Americm voters finally cast their ballots in No vember. It is no mere concatenation of exploded sophistries, of impractical and visionary drumere, but an address that appea's to eu y solid nnd practi cal American experience, and is forti fied by the results of our own indus trial history horestly written. The service which th:s great epeech will render to tho cause of honett money and of national integrity and govern mental solvency is incalculable. It is wholly beyond estimation nnd measure.

"We hold to the use of both gold and silver as the standard money of the country, and to the coinage of both gold and silver, without discriminating against either metal or charge for mintage, but the dollar unit of coinage of both metals must be of EQUAL INTRINSIC AND EXCHANGEABLE VALUE, or be adjusted through INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENT, or by such safeguards of legislation us shall insure the maintenance of the parity of the two metals and tho equal power of every dollar al all times in the markets and in tho payment of debts; nnd we demand that oil puper currency shall bo kept at par nnd redeemable in such coin. "Wo insist upon this policy aa especially uecessary for the pro tection of the FARMERS AND LABORING CLASSES, the liret and most denfenceless victims of UNSTABLE MONEY AND A FLUCTUATING CURRENCY." Ilemocrtlc IMatlorui 1803. Home Bule. Our county judges, having the grave responsibility of managing the finance, the roads and bridges in our county; in short, being our direct and immediate legislators, sbocrld be selected with di rect reference to their qualifications, re gardless cf political influence. Being guided by thisjaloue we have se lected as candidates for these places, Benjamin F. Morgan, of Nodaway town ship, and George Meyer, of Liberty township. Mr. Morgan is now judge of this district, having been elected in 1892 and again in 1894. He is a successful and progressive farmer and a man of strung, personal influeuce. He is made of reason, investigates and weighs all questions with unqualified exactness, re gardless of fear or favor. He has studied the conditions of our county in every re lation that may be brought before him; and looks into the statutes governing him in his duties, and ho aims to adhere to the law strictly as ho sees and under stands it. He is not a chrooic office seeker, but he demands the recognition of his interests in tones that all mast hear and give heed. He is common with his associates, has been a true guardinn of our county's interests, and, with n eye of precision, guards ever expendi ture; has been tried and found worthy. He is the watch dog of our county's fi nances. He has the experience of the past four years. With an eye single to the interest of the whole people and the tax payers, he will not allow himself to be turned from his path of duty towards them. Guided by his work alone, fellow citizens, he deceives your hearty, cordial support. Mr. .ueyer, of the upper district, is an extensive farmer of Liberty township. He is nn honored and respected citizen in the community in which he lives. He is it man of judgment and worth; of reputation nnd character; of earnest and sober habits; of unquestioned integrity and unfaltering perseverance. His neigh bou speak in the highest terms of him, nnd knowing them as wedo, we feel that in advocating n;s election we are mak ing no mistake. As we have Btatod, these gentlemen are admirably equipped for the positions they seek; 69 also are u iiiiam McKinley ror president. R. E. Lewis for governor. John Kenn'sh for nttorney-generu'.

Assessor, Fred E. Burnett. Treasurer, Clark O. Proud. Surveyor, Grant Landon. Public administrator, G. A. Laugblio, Coroner, T. O. Davis. Some Notable Omissions. Mr. Biyan, in his speech of accept ance, declared that "those who stand upon the Chicago platform are prepared to make known and defend every motive which influences them, every purpose which animates them, and every hope which inspires them." This promise of comprehens;ve candor was not kept. One of the most serious and important parts of the Chicago platform is this: 'We denounce arbitrary interference by Federal authorities in local affairs as a violation of the Constitution of the United States and a crime against free nstitutions. and we especially object to government by injunction as a new and highly dangerous form ot oppression, cy which Federal judges, in contempt of the laws of states and rights of citizens, become at once legislators, judges and executioners. Of the purposes and motives which in spire the denunciation Mr. Bryan said not u single word, tie did not mention it, although it is one of those policies proposed nt Chicago which, as he said in this same speech, have caused "men standing high in business and political circles, te charge that the platform "is a menace to orivate security and public safety," nnd that the men whom Mr. Bryan represents, "not only meditate an attack upon the rights of property, but are the foes both of social order and na tional honor. If anything can be said in favor ot what seems to be an invitation to riot and an attempt to make the Federal government impotent to protect the mails, it is strange that he did not say it. He cannot induce people to forget it in silence aud trying to concentrate at tention upon the silver question. He and all cand:,lates, whether national, stale or county, stand upon the whole platform, and he must defend the whole. Mr. Bryan gave no explanation of the motive and purpose of another import ant and serious part of the Chicago plat form: "We are opposed to life tenure in tho public service." Another attack upon the supreme court is contained in these words: "We declare that it is the duty of con gress to use all the constitutional power which remains after that decision (the income tax decision) or which may come from its reversal by the court, us it may hereafter bo constituted, so that the burdens of taxation may bo equally and impartially laid, Ac." Mr. Bryan calls this "critisising" the supreme court. Isnt'ireatto pack the court entitled to be ca'' d a criticism of it? If the three quotations above are not revolutionary in their tendencies, then we do not know the meaning of plain English. The man that conceived these revolu tionary articles ot the Chicago platform is none other than the anarchistic gov ernor of Illinois, who refused to be es corted by a detatchmetit of tho United States army and state mliitin, while he was a guest of the city of Atlanta. They carried the American Hag in the line, and hnd it been a band ot rioters carry ing the red Hag, Mr. Altgeld would doubtless have acctpted the honor of the escort. The Republican party believes in up holding the courts of our land; it be lieves the United States authorities should protect its citizens from mob rule. It believes in an honest dollar for nil its people. The candidates upon the Republican ticket stand upon the St. Louis plal form national, state, con gress:onal and senatorial. They are as follrws, and deserve your hearty sup port: William McKinley for president. Robert E. Lewis ror governor. George C. Crowther for congress. C. M. Harrison for senator.

Sound Money THE BATTLE IS ON! Hon.Robert E. Lewis, Missouri's Next Governor, Addresses an Immense Crowd at Mound City. Mound City's welcome to tho Re publican party's nominee for governor wus a most hearty and royalice one. Her people, irrespective of party extended a hearty coming and joyous wel comes to him and Congressman Crow thor. He, with Mr. Crowther and others were met nt Corning by State Commit teeman DobynB, who escorted them to Bige'ow whero County Secret pry Porter, ncting fcr tne lie- publicans of Holt county, received the party, anc escorted them to conveyances which were in waiting, and they were atones driven over to Mound City, and placed in charge of t.io good host of the Hotel Midland. After n brief reBt, the governor-to-be wassubject to the wishes of those who desired to look into his face and shako him by the hand. During this reception he was greeted by one continual pressing throng, which streamed in and out of the hetel to meet bun. Republicans and Democrats alike were pleased with his uppearance, which is, in fact, most iuipretsive. He is a man of handsome and graceful bearing, ot pleasing address, and has a counteuance suggestive of keen in telligence and frank, hearty courtesy, which gains nim many friends. After this hearty welcome, he retired for a brief rest before dining, that he might be fresher for his afternoon effort. A number of the business houses in town, and a few private residences were decorated with Hugs and patriotic bunt ing in accordance with the general en thusiasm. Large throngs of farmers and inhabi tants ot neighboring to-ns were on the stroetB, and long before the hour for the speaking, the public park began to be filled. Politics and 10 to 1 seemed to be the theme of conversa tion on every street corner, and the people showed signs of the greatest of interest in questions at issue and seem ed to expect much enlightenment from the noted speakers, in which they were cot in the least disappointed. A little before the hour, Mound City's excellent band come upon the street and played some excellent music, and which was the warning to all to assem ble at the park, and headed by the band, the carriage containing the speakers followed by the McKinley League club 200 strong, took up their line ot march for the park. Fully 2000 people were present to extend a welcome to Mr. Lewis and Crowther. On arriving at the park, they wete escorted to a neatly arranged platform, handsomely decorated, where Air. Liucas introduced E. J. Kellogg, ot Craig, hs chairman of the occasion. Mr. Kellogg tilled this position with his usual dignity and grace and with a few happily chosen words introduced, Misaaurrs next governor as the nrsi speaker. Mr. Lewis occupied about an hour and presented the lantf and nnan- cial question inja clear, logical and con vincing manner. Mr. Crowther follow ed and for an hour nnd a halt dealt telling blows upon the un-American, un- Democratic and un-patnotic features of the Chicago platform. The meeting at Mound City was one of the very best in the history of the town and one that will long be remem ber by her people tho facts are sho never doeB anything on a small scale anyway. Completing their addresses, carriages were in waiting and the parly left, at 4:30 p. m. for Oregon, where they were to address the people at the court house. Mr. Lewis only consented to make his second speech of the day that morning, and a telegram from Mr. Dobyns ut Corning, to the people of Oregon, put them at work, and bow thoy did work. Posters were at once issued, and the effective work ot C. O. Proud, A. C Ware and others was seen in the eve ning when the hour for speakiug arrived The court house was never more crowd ed and never will be., and unlike the omnibus, there wasn't room for "one more." The party arrived in this city at a little past seven o'clock, and were es corted through the principal streets by cur cornet band, to the Hotel Woodland, where after partaking of supper, the party was ready for another task. At about 8 o'clock, Mr. Lewis and Crowther bntered the conrt house, and were greeted by cheer after cheer from one of the most enthusiastic and intelligent audiences that ever assembled within the walls ot Oregon's beautiful court houie. Vi'hen the cheering and hearty manifestations ot welcome bad subsided, Mr. Ivan Blair was called upon to pre 6ido, and in an introductory of most excellent taste, and choicest English, in troduced Mr. Lewis, as the first speaker as well as the next governor of our great state. Mr. Lewis spoke about an hour and a half, and had from the first syllable of bis introduction to the last, the un divided attention of as large and in telligent an audience as ever assembled in our court house. He articu lated slowly and distinctly stepped logically from one stepping stone to another boilt block by block uo argu ment which it would be folly for any one to attempt to refute. He opened his address with the statement that he intended to address his remarks "to the intelligence ot the pesple, and not to their prejudice; that he wanted every, citizen ot Missouri and ot the nation to read the platforms first,and then vote.and not as Senator Vest says, vote first, then read your platforms." Until 1S92 we en joyed great prosperity ,that year being of itself a year ot peace and contentment. In 1892 we listened to the cries and pleadings of the Democracy and placed them in power. Since that memorable year, industry has gone down more and more, and utterly failed. The Demo cratic party has abandoned its principal of "Free Frade" as a remedy for all ills, and nronoses lti to 1. and without one I faltering step we meet the issue. That the mystic, arithmetical ex- ' pression "1C to 1" is not a Democratic craature. t our years ago i was pre sented to the Democratic national con vention, and was rejected by that body by a vote of 931 nays against only 17 yeas. It was decided in that conven tion that such a thing as the free coin age of silver could be accomplished only by international agreement. It was not Democratic it was Populism. As to the constitutional scarecrow, "money of the constitution," he re minded his hearers that the constitution did not mention the silver dollar in any connection. Silver is not the money of the constitution. Neither is gold. Democrats THEN LOOK AT THIS: "We demand the FREE AND UNLIMITED COINAGE of both gold nnd silver at the present legal RATIO OF 10 TO 1. WITHOUT WAITING FOR THE AID OR CONSENT OF ANY OTHER NATION. We demand that the standard silver dollar shnll be a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all debts, public and private, and we favor such legislation us will prevent for the future the demnnol.zation of any kind of legal tender money by private contract." I'opocratic riatfuim 1XIMI. KSSfiHPSSSHlCSOBS'fiSS Thore never was n more complete and absolute reversal of party creed in the history of American politics. This explains tha magni tude and power of the remarkable revolt of sound money democrats from the pepulistic declarations of the Chicago platform. Tho ratio of gold to silver is not legi I primarily. The tranters of the con stitution declared it was a commercial consideration. He then gave a brief history of the early coinage laws the three coins, in circulation then were the American silver dollar, the gold dollar and the Spanish dollar; these three could not stay in circulation could not mingle side by Bide. The silver dollar was worth more intrinsicnll than the gold dollar. Who would psv out a dollar for 100 cents, that be could sell for 101 or 10G cenU?Tberefore in 1800 by a decree ot the father ot Democracy the mints were closed againBt the coin age of that silver dollar.-; He then took up the so called crime of 1873 and gave a history of this legis lation, showing that only 88,000,000 sil ver dollars had been coined up to that time, while since that time there had been nearly 70 times more coined. He showed that the great leaders, Senator Stewart and others had voted for this crime, while now they were yellir.g themselves hoarse at the very act they had voted for. Mr. Lewis used the plainest English possible, and applied his words so neatly and fitted them so aptly to the themes, that he produced an argument so plain, so clear and logical, that there was not a person in the house but was inlluenced by that splendid depiction of unimpaired common-sense and truth. Mr. Crewther, on being introduced, soon reached the point where he "waded in" and said, among other things, that the campaign ot 1891 was conducted solely upon the tariff question and upon the record ot the Democratic party and its allieB in congress. Such a crushing defeat was never administered to free trade before in this country, nud the as tonishing spectacle was presented of a house of representatives in control of the Republican party with over U0 ma jority. He reviewed the action nnd work of that houso nnd gave an intolli- gent report of his stewardship, nnd from the applause that was given it was evi dent that the citizens of this part ot his district are perfectly satisfied with his conduct and labors as the congressman fiom this district. Mr. Crowther gave an exhaustive review uf the tariff legis lation nt this couutry, the reciprocity features and the great benefits and prosperity of our country under the wise legislation of the Republicans while in power. We are honest in advo cating Republican principles, and we wnnt an honest government ol puulic affaire, and we want honest money to pay our honest debts, both national and personal, and we want honest methods used in bringing all this about. We be li6ve in the faithful maintenance ot the difference between American and Eu ropean wages, but we are opposed to foreign countries dumping their paupers, criminals and outcasts upon our shores. but we welcome the representative peo ple of all nations, both laborer and capi talist, who want to make our country hm home. He reminded his friends that through his efforts as a membtr of tho pension committee he had succeeded in having a number of old soldiers restored to the pension rolls and originals granted, which hnd brought $13,000 into the dis tnct. As a result ot tho successive defeats of 1873, 'Ol, Xt, the opposition to the Re publican party was completely disheart ened and gave up all hopes of winning this contest on the tariff question. They determined to ndopt a new issue, nnd demanded another change. In 1892, they declared what was needed was Tree trade. In this year of gra e it was free silver. In order to make this the issue it was necessary to repudiate the action of their national convention in 1892, which refused to adopt n free silver plat form by a vote ot 913 to 17. nnd to repu diate the candidate of 1892, decline to indorse the record of their administra tion, which they themselves assisted to make, and to form an alliance with the new party that came into existence in 1890. The opposition insists that the money question overshadows all others ns the great issue in this campaign, and that what is required to bring prosperity to the country is not a return to the conditions that existed between 1880 and 1890, but that we should open our mints to the free and unlimited coinage or silver at the ratio ot 1G to 1, without waiting for the consent of any other na tion, nnd challenged the Republican 1 party to a contest on this issue, which the Republican party gladly and willing ly accepted ns it wae in 18Gl-.", so in 1896 the grand old party 's called upon to fight the battle of ballots whereby the nation is to be saved from tinancial dishonor and disgrace. He then entered into n lengthy and nble discussion ot the financial question. Concluding his remarks he was greeted with a hearty round of applause and cheering and the meeting came to a close. Forest City. Mo. Last Saturday was a gala day tit For est City, the result of the McKinley and Hobart pole raising and ratification meeting, under the auspices of McKin ley, Hobart and Kennish club of thnt place. Notwithstanding the threaten ing weather, the attendance was beyond all expectations, and when the hour for opening the days' program arrived and Old Glory was unfurled to the breeze from its tall and stately McKiniey staff, the pent up enthusiasm gave vent in such a lusty chorus of cheers as only the united hosts ol sound government and prosperity can send forth. A happy in cideut ot the proceedings was the selec tion ns chairman of the day. the Hon. C. S. Harwood, of Atchison county, whose remarks wore peculiarly well suited to the occasion and a lilting prelude to the introduction of the orntor of the day. Congressman Geo. C. Crowther, and his masterly discourse on the' issues of the campaign, ir nny nuditor was at all in doubt as to Uncle Sam's ailment this diagnosis certainly dispelled it and the treatment prescribed removed all appre hension as to a speedy recovery if ad ministered as directed, the most import ant of which is the removal of the pa tient up out of the miasmatic bogs of free trade, bond issues and business depression" into the sunlicht and pure ozone of business confidence nnd integ- rity only to bo found on the hill tops of j Protection, Recipiocity and Sound Fi-i nance, whereat is founded the McKinley , sanitarium with a record of infallibility in such cases. The love feast concluded with a short and convincing argument by Hon. C. A. Mossman, of St. Joseph. The McKinley club membership was largely augmented as a consequence of the able remarks and now numbers more voters in this precinct than the heretofore Republican voting strength, and still they ain't satisfied to quit. Fortaieae, Mo. A very enthusiastic McKinley meeting was had at Fortescue, Friday night, Aug. Revolt. 1 28. We were favored with ablo address es from our friends at Oregon. Hon Samuel O Fallon delivered one of h masterly and logical addresses on th financial question; he showed that Ihe republican party had not depnrted from its principals, and hnd always been in favor of sound finance; he chawed that from 1878, to 1893, we had been n friend to silver, and that it was not tho inten tion of the Repubhcnn party to change the system of tinnnce, or to discontinue the use of silver ns money, nnd tho pledge of tho government since 18' nas oeen 10 noiu nil Kinds ot money on a parity with gold, and that we hnd more money per capita now than weevor had before; he showed that it was not our finances that was doing tho injury to ousiness, but the Wilson tarm bill tho destruction of our recinrocitv treat ies with foreign countries, whereby the balance or trade wnsngaicst us, the gold was laKen out or our national trensurv to pay said balance nt trnde, and that duties bad fallen off to that extent i which thore was a deficiency to run the government, judge O Knllon was nn plauded.and his address was pronounced uy all a masterly effort. Judge L R. Knowles was introduced and said that this was a campaign which every voter ought to qualify him self by studying tho is6ue. and by com paring the United States with puch conn tries as Mexico, China, Japan, India ant! other freo silver countries. Judge C. O. Proud wns next intu ducod, and delivered a very interesting and logical address as to tho principle or mo republican party. Mr. Charles Edwards next come for ward, and entertained the audience for n few moments. Owing to the lateness of the evening Mr. Edwards did not speak long. We had a rousing good t'nie. a great deal of enthusiasm was manifested; in fact, it was an intellectual treat to tho citizens of Fortescuo. We ad journed to meet Saturday night, Sept. .mi, to orgnmze a McKinley club, a The Ticket. Of course it is n tirst-clai-s, excellent ticket, composed of able and worthy men, such a Republicans of Holt are in the habit of offering to tho voters of the county for endorsement. There is not n name upon the ticket from McKinley down that is not borne by nn honorable man who will creditably fill the place which he has been picked out to occupy. The ticket is unassailable; that every name on it is entitled to full and hearty support. They represent the party that has never yet refused to race un issue brought for ward by its opponents. They represent me paty that is opposed to the debase ment or our currency system. They ure opposed to the party that declares ngainst federal interference to enforce the statutes; They are members of the party that opposes the party that de clared at Chicago as being opposed to civil service reform. They represent the party that believes in upholding the Federal judiciary, nnd are opposed the party that nttacKs the honor am independence of the United State supremo court. Do those Republicans who aid declaring their purpose to vote for Mr. Uryar. menu to Bay that they in tend to voto 'or nil those un-American and un-Repuulicnu ideaB contained the Cbichago platform? We hope not A Strong Ticket Choson Tho anti-Repudiation Democrats of Missouri were true to their promises that they would tight the repudiation ists, mob law Bi'slainers and supremo court manipulators, all along the line by nominating a state ticket, as well as an electoral ticket, around which all who would not vote for McKinley and Hobart might rally. Their convention wns in every way creditable to the cause it represented There was no tooting or drumming for attendance, and no ellort to make a big showing, and yet the number present was unusually large, and the enthusiasm wriB great and equal to the best that has ever been witnessed under similar cir cumstances. It will not do to belittle the cause of honest money in Missouri And what occurred in St. Louis last week is occurring all over the state, and all over other states The nomination of J. McD. Trimble, of Kansas City, for governor was nn net of wi.-e provision, and will win to their Bide many Democrats of our state who are halting between two opinions, are debating whether thoy will vote for Brynn, the repudiationist, or remain at home entirely. Mr. Trimble is an exceedingly able and popular man, an attorney of recog nized ability, and a gentleman for whom all honest money Democrats can con scientiously cast their ballots. The ticket as named is composed of tho following well-known gentlemen: Governor J. McD. Trimble, of Kan sas City. Lieutenant-Governor A. F. Oster- man.of St. Louis county. Secretaiy of Stale D. N. Mclntyre, of Audrain county. Treaeuier William Mcllwrath, of Chillicothe. Auditor I. R. Porter, Jasper cunt3- Attorney-General N.D.Thurmond, of Callaway county. Railroad Commissioner H. A. Custer, of Platte county. Judge of Supremo Court Judge Theadore Brace. All were nominnted by acclamation. Tne convention also selected the follow ine nresidential electors-ot-Inrge: Rev. W. Pope Yeamnn nnd Benjamin Miii-sie. G. W. Ballengee. of Craig, was chopen as th nresidential elector for this congressional district. Judge Brnee is now on tho supremo bench and is also a candidate for re elec tion on the regular Democratic ticket. The convention instructed its dele gntea to Indianapolis to present the name of James O. Broadhcad, of St Louis, for president of the United States, and adjourned sino dip. Congressional committeemen were also chosen for the various congressional dis tricts of tho state with the view of plac ing sound money Democratic congress ional candidates in the field. The com mittee named for thiB district was the following: Atchison. H. K. Noel. Andrew, J. A. Ryan. Buchnnnn. II. M. uarliclis, unaries pratt, David Ewing, Holt. Charles D. Zook. Nodaway, Julius E.

Stii.u Ailvertwmriit.l CAPITAL REMOVAL CAN IN NO EVENT INCREASE TAXA TION. The Limit is on, And Tho Constitu tion Would Not Permit It. The principal objection and the only one of merit (provided it wore true) that that can bo urged against the removal ot the capital, is that it will increase the stats taxes, icelying on this, Jelloreon City people tire having printed in a num ber of papers they have contracts with. terns similar to the following which we copy from tho Fayette Democrat Ban ner: "It capital removal carries, tho tax- oayers for the next five years will pay three times the amount of taxes for state purposes they now pay or have paid in lato years. Hut the sentinel asserts that u is impossible to add one single cent to the burdens ot tho tax-payer in nny event, or under any sort ot contingencies. The state constitution, in the matter ot rais- ng revenue, expressly says: bee. s. The state tax on property, exclusive of the tnx necessary to pay the bonded debt of the state shall not exceed 25 cents on tho 9100 valuation. and whenever taxable property of the state shall aalount to 5.KX).(X.),000 tho rate shall not exceed l- cents. The valuation having run ovor?000,- 000,000, tho levy for state purposes is now only la cents on the $1W valuation which, with 10 cents ndded to pay in terest on tho bonded dobte, retire bonds as they come due, makes the full limit of the power of the state to rai6e taxes from tho people!

Sas seen, unoui unom mere iihh oeen so much gossip of late, particulars of which are familiar to most or the people here Knrly taut week Mr. nnd Mrs. Sasseen left Stanherry for their old home nt Sa vannah, and thu next day Prosecuting Attorney Dal bey was in the city hunt ing up proof on which to base the chargiii contained in the affidavit. He turning to Albany. Mr. Dal bey issued a warrant and Sheriff Itoed was sent to Savannah after Kev.Sasseen, arriving at Albany with the put-oner on Wednes day. Mr. Sasseen at once secured bond which we understand was signed by Mr. Marion Miller, cashier of the Gentry County bank, and Mr. J. W. Coulter, be sides others whose names we could not learn. McCulIough .t IVery were en gaged to defend him. He waived pre liminary tnal and returned to his home at Savannah. For several weeks this trouble of Mr. Sasseen's has been the gossip of saint and sinner. nnJ ntror at has been the accusations and condemnations, there has been good words spoken for the minister, and he will be upheld by his friends until the court says he is guilty. In his conduct around the store of Jor dan & Besinger there are said to be many little actions that naturally sug gest n bad motive, and yet in bin own way Ber. Sasseen attempts to explain them away. Kev.J. 1L SaFseen has been in the ministry of the Methodist Episcopal church for many years, but for the last five or six years he has held only a su pernumerary relation. He is an excel lent pulpit orator, and in his prime was very energetic in organising M. K. churches. Ho is the founder uf the church in this city, and worked hard to maintain it in its infancy, having ad vanced l Dney for material and done carpentet work on the building. Sasseen is said to bo worth about 000, and yet is nccused of being a stingv man.

V.o the nmnln r.f Missouri want the canitnl wmnrM fmm JefTerson City to Sedalia? No, they do nub. njr men ma tne concurrent resolution te submit this question to tho voters of the state at our next elec lion carry. I as a member ot tho leg islature voted to submit tho miestmn nnd at the same time was opposed to removal, was my vote consistent? I claim it was. For twenty years Sedalia has coveted the capital, arid on several occasions attempted to pass a resolution submitt ing removal to a vote of thu people. This agitation and threat' wns natumllv u check to the growth and prosperity of s JetTerson City. I believed the tight 1 would have to come and the sooner it was sat tied by a vote of tho people tho J better it would be, and I for one am ; perfectly willing to trust ' the people. ' and I have no doubt but a largo major- :, ity of the voters of our state will on , election dny cross out the word 'yes" on their ticket and vote "nu". Out side of the selfish spirit of Se- " daha, there is not ono good honest sensible reason for removal. :. Sedalia tells us that capitals have been removed antl that great men advocate removal granting that ccaionally for good reasons capitals have been removed, what has thnt, got to do with this quest, ion? Lincoln has been quoted, well like . the honest mtn he was, he worked to -remove the capital or Illinois from -Vandalia in the south end of the state up to Springfield nearer tho center. If Lincoln was living today in the state of Mi6souri"h; would blush, as all honest men should, at the proposition of Se dalia, to remove tho capital from Jefferson City within thirteen miles of the geographical center of our estate, ' -where it was wisely located over seventy years ago, on the Missouri river, that inxurcs an inexhaustible supply of the purest water that Hows on earth and where they have the most perfect drainage arid all other nntural advan tages; out to one Bide of the state, within two counties of the Kansas line, to tho town of Sedalia, forty miles from the Missouri river, dependent upon the impure waters of Hat creek which fre quently goes dry for their supply. The Sedalia capital a Journal clamoring Turiously for removal last fall warned the pc-ople of Sedalia to boil the water, as the only safety before using in. But they tell the people "we will get .Tj nice new buildings, as good as our oUV-4v ones for nothing. Grant that we dcT, what have we gained by the exchange. Is it not exceedingly cheeky, for Se- ' dalia to ask the vntera r.f Micsmr! tn uvsiruy mu prosperity ot .icuerson uny, unu roo ner citizens io ouilu up se dalia. because thereby we will get new buildings aa good as the old,-free. Our present crpital. supreme; court building armory and govenrtirs mansion are in good condition, eighty percent of them are comparatively new. Senator Yeater tells the people in has speech at Sulphur Springs, that wa have spent three hundred and fifty thousand dol lars on said buildings at Jefferson City in the last ten years; this is oter one half of all they promise to pend build ing them new nt Sedalia. It is claimed by M)rae that it the capital is removed'' to Sedalia then the state cm never be called on for mocey to furnish or in any way construct their new buildings. How foolish and utterly absurd, no man of sense who would read the constitut ional amendment removing the capital, would for a moment contend that future legislatures could not vote millions of dollars, to build new winga and enlarge the buildings, in fact there is no provision in the resolution as to furniture and int-ide furnishing of the- pronosed new buildings, which in some in .is i urn oegun to ouuu n new capital and have spent from sevoral hundred thousand dollars up to millions, each and every year, up to date, amount spent, over twenty one millions and it will require over two millions to finish the job. Missouri should take warning and let well enough alone, vote for capital removal and wc are in the swim, and no telling where we will land. Jefferson City has spent in publip and private improvements in the last two years over two million dollars, they have spent four hundred thousand in the last year, two hundred thousand of which was for their new bridge, over the Missouri river, connecting their railroads, and giving her much better railroad facilities than Sedalia. They hate a standing otter of fifty thousand iloll.irs rash tn tho first nil I mud thnt lory, X- I t , -ii reaches Springfield. No city in our-- state (for it's population, eight thousand) shows ns much push and enterprise as Jefferson City. It all the state build ings at Jefferson City was destroyed I would vote to rebuild them right where and there can lie found no better place in our state. Thisl whole question ofv capital removal, is a wicked scheme lin en the part of Sedalia, the people are not asking for it. I request all niy friends and all men who want to be fair and honest on elec tion day to cross out "yes" on your ticket and vote ''no" on capital removal by so doing, repudiate one of the most corrupt and wicked frauds that was ever at tempted to le perpetrated upon thu people of grand old Missouri.
