In a recent Issue of Harper •' Weekly Heaa

the adherents of any other financial policy.
They do not seek to build up one secllon ut

unit In favor of the free and unlimited coinage
of allver.tbrough international agreement and
adoption If pos«.*tde, hut If not, then by the
United State* without Killopeau cn-o|>crat!oii.
"The advocates of the policy arc found lu
all the political parties. They have, a* bi
metallists, no necessity or natural affiliations
with the Populist party, so culled, nor are
they to be classed with crank* or socialists.
Adherence to the conviction that silver should
be restored to lu old |K>*ltliui as a money
metal Is consistent with u belief, as to other
questions. In the principles of either of tin
great political parties. The vast majority of
the people cherishing these'convictions arc

‘I he overwhelming vote w hich this great sec
tion (Killed for the Populist ticket at the last
election was not because of Its belief In or
sympathy with the general gospel of discon
tent which that party preached in it* plat
form, but solely 'hat It might emphasize Its
protest against the liullffe.ei.ee or hn-iillty
with which bimetallism was treated by both
of the great parties.
" ‘Time ripens all things.’ A few years
ago the advocate of free coinage of silver win
looked upon ns belonging to the army of the
long-haired. To-day probably nine-tenths of
the American people nrc convinced of the la
sufflclency of the gold supply and the wl.-dom
of l>l-mctalll.*m. and there Is hardly a writer
on political economy or « *lu.lcnt of tinnnee
who doss not advocate It. Men differ widely.
It i* true, upon the \ital question its to
whether the United State* can safely embark
upon the policy of free coinage without
European co-operation, nml a« to tlie wUe-l
method of Inducing other nation* to join In

and Austria for the purposes of remonetiza
tion. are buying gold in the United Hint** tic
cause they can purchase It more readily here
than In Europe. There Is less gold In Eng
land than a few months ago, notwithstanding
American shipments. Silver Is dragged Into
the consideration of the subject by the asser
tion that If wc had u stable financial basis
which is presumed to nienn If wc teased pur

In us. w hich Is now withdrawn, and would re
invest the money she draws from tbe country
in our securities. The facts do not warrant
tbe statement.
•The great loss sustained by English In
vestors In South America, followed by finan
cial disasters at home, and more recently in
the colonies, compelled many foreign holders
to open tbelr strong boxes and realize on
their American securities. These securities,
principally railway bonds, arc largely paya
ble, principal and Interest, in goid; others
are payable in lawful money. The securities
returning for sale come Indifferently in either
sort, and without reference to the material in
which they are payable. There are million*
of dollara' worth of American railway stock*,
such aa the stock of the Pennsylvania, New
York, New Haven, and Hartford, and other
dividend-paying railroads, also held abroad.
These stocks rarely come back, becauac the
least desirable aecuritles come flrst, and tbe
stocka often pay larger dividends on coat than
railway bonda, yet tbe dividend* on tbe stock
are payable In 'lawful money,’ aud not
specifically in gold. There Is no dlstrnat

stadards of value.

ment Into consideration which goes Into the
< o-l of the search for silver ami compare h
with the yield, and there is no doubt that
every ounce of silver has co t more than Its
value. A few years ago one of the placer
mines In Colorado ylelde I SIOd a day to the
man. That particular gold cost less than $1 an
ounce to produce. Near by there were hun
dreds of men working In oilier gulches who
lound nothing. Was the cost of producing
gold a dollar an ounce} A man once In Aus
tralia was riding across the country, when
his horse stumbled over a nugget worth $20,-
000 or thereabout. Did that find serve to de

"The Intensity of feeling existing lu the

A Welch Church Itullt In 171 A-A Ito
mantle History—Named After the
Welch Cat ron saint - Aged
■ad Hequeatereil.
Situated in the soction of Delaware !
county, Pennsylvania, known as Hud- j
not* Valley, on the coniines of Chester
and Dolawaro counties, stands one of
the oldest churches in this country,
erected by Welsh colonists who came
from Hadnorsliiro, Wales in 1685, and
named after their patron saint, St.
David. The church is in a sheltered
dale, the quiet peaco of the locality
being undisturbed by any march of
improvement. The aged walls are
covered with a luxuriant growth of
ivy and are surrounded by venerable
oaks, whose shadows have crossed its
roof for over two centuries.
Tradition pointß to a church built
of logs on the sito of the present
edifice early in tile seventeenth cen
tury, and in the old parish register
are recorded births as early as 1706.
Mention is made of the parish in Old
inixon’s “British Einpiro in America. ”
In 1707 tho Welsh of Radnor ad
dressed a petition to the English
Society for tho Propagation of tho
Gospel in Foreign Parts by a minister
who understood the English lan
guage. Mr. John Chubb, who had
officiated as a lay reader for some
time, was called to London, and
after taking orders was formally ap
pointed tho society’s first missionary.
After his return to America a sub
scription was started to erect a stone
church in this soction. says tho New
York Herald. Opinions differed as
to tho location, many desiring its
location on a lot of fifteen acres on
tho Sugartown road, neat* Washing
ton's headquarters; but ufter a
lengthy debate the present location
was decidod upon, it is said, mainly
owing to its proximity to a good spring
of water. The owner of tho lot hav
ing given tho congregation tho right
to “fence off fiveacros in one corner, ”
on May 15, 1715, the congregation
and visiting clergy marched in pro
cession to the site, and each of tho
latter, under tho direction of tho
master mason, laid ono of the stones.
Tho edifice was compiotod during tho
same year.
For somo time after its coraplo tion
no provision was tnado for seating
the congregation, individual mem
l>crs providing their own chairs and
benches; but in 1765 the church was
floored and rough settees rented to
the parishioners. On tho venerable
register we find that "William Evans
and Hugh Jones aro to have ye upper
bench above ye doorc for £2. ” A later
custom appears to liavo been to sell a
floor space within tho church on which
tho owner might erect a pow to suit
his tastes. In 1763 It is recorded
that the vestry granted to llobort
Jones tho privilege to build a pew* on
a piece of ground in St. David's
church, adjoining Wayno’s and Hun
ter’s pow, ho paying for ye ground
£4 10s.
Tradition speaks of other uses than
divine worship to which old St.
David’s was accustomed, for in 1763
the residents convened hore at the -
request of Mr. Currie to provide a '
guard system to protect their homes j
from an expected attack from the In- I
dians under Pontiac. At the begin- !
niug of tho revolution tho rector an
nounced his determination to con
tinue the use of tho liturgy, includ
ing tho prayers for tho king and tho
royal family; this mot with such pro
tests from tho patriotic colonists that
ho was forced to resign under the
plea of “uge and infirmities.” Tho
historic edifice was then occupied by
various denominations, and among
others General Anthony Wayne’s
chaplain, a Baptist oxhortor, arousod
his hearers to patriotic deeds.

tion hy tho American army the loadon

Anne, mysteriously disappeared. It
is stated that sixteen unknown dead
from the battlcfiold of Brandywine,
who had died at farmhouses in tho
neighborhood, wore buried in a hol
low* near tho gallery stops, and resi
dents in tho vicinity toll of ghostly
visitors clad in tattorod rogimentala
seen wandering at uncanny hours in
tho anciont churchyard. It is also
! related that Major Gonoral Gray, be

Rev. Elay lor Clay was ordained
rector in 1788. It is said that he
always rode to church on horseback,
preached in a flowing gown and do
ilvored a long oxtomporaneous ser
mon. During tho latter’s incumbency
tho remains of General Anthony
Wayne wore removed from tho for
tress at IYesqu’islo to tho church
yard at Radnor, and on July 4, 1800,
tho handsomo monument over the re
mains was dedicated with appropriate
Longfellow's poem, “Old St.
David’s at Radnor," has made tho
historic place famous. Regarding his
visit ho says: “Ono day I drove ovor
to Radnor. Old ,St. David’s with its
charming and picturosquo surround
ings, attracted my attention. Its di
minutive sizo, peculiar architecture,
tho littlo rectory in tho grove, the
quaint churchyard where Mad An
thony Wayne is buried, tho great
tree which stands at the gateway and
the pile of great stones which makes
the old church, and is almost hidden
by tho climbing ivy, all combine to
make it a gem for a fancy picture.”
Just His Luck.
Ho was a jolly granger, and tho
fact that ho know a thing or two
wasn’t advertised by tho cut ot ms
clothes or by the fit of his whiskers.
“Hello, Uncle Ben,” said a man
who met him just as he reached the

“What are you doing hero?”
“Come on business," ho said sol
“On business?”
••Yep. I came to toll tho adminis
tration that I don’t want office. I’ve
bin a Democrat over since I was old .
enough to pronounce tho word. I
voted for Cleveland every time I hod
a chance, so I came erlong to pro
claim loudly that I don’t want office.

The Church and Its Supporters.
The New York prosbytery has de
cided that it won’t have women doa
cons. Tho rights of the women in
the churches arc thoso: Thoy shall
represent four-fifths of tho church
goers and nineteen-twentieths of tho
attendants at prayer mootings. Thoy
shall do all tho mission work, con
tribute all the enthusiasm for Sunday
schools, parish labors and church
holiday festivals, but they shall have
no voice in tho executive council, be
cause once upon a timo St.. Paul mado
a few disparaging rotnarks about
sisters who sought prominonce. To
those who aro not associated with
tho church tlicro is nothing moro
surprising than tho attitude of tho
church toward thoso who aro its
main supporters.—Chicago Herald.
