THURSDAY, MAY 27
Discussing the problem of re
uniting the two wings of the Dem
ocratic party, Senator Gray says
Democrats should unite against the
further contraction of the currency.
Speaking of the Dingley bill and
the proposed retirement of the
greenbacks, he said:
"But the greenbacks arejrequired
by law to be re-issued when they
come into the possession of she Gov
ernment. They can only be retired
by authority of law, and can be
safely retired only by such carefully
contrived legislation as shall, by a
substituted currency, avoid the dis
tress of contraction.
"Such a bill runs athwart every
conviction of my life, and should be
a challenge to every Democrat who
understands and loves the principles
of his party to untiring warfare in
behalf of the people whom it threat
ens to surpress."
Senator Gray left the party last
autumn, and voted for Palmer and
The Democrats in New York ap
pear to be ready to unite in the con
test for the control of the Greater
Gotham. Ex-Governor Flower, who
bolted last fall, says:
"The Gold Democrats would sup
port a man though he voted for
Bryan who would stand upon a
platform confined to local and perti
nent issues, though they would not,
in my judgment, support a candi
date running on a platform indors

Vice President IIohaut has at
least shown that he has some regard
for justice and some consideration
for the rights of a legislate minor
ity. He annqpjvoee that debate on
the tariff 6111 will be given all rea
sonable latitude in the senate, and
full opportunity will be given for
the consideration of each schedule
in the measure.
This is in marked contrast to the
methods pursued by Speaker Peed
and the Republican house forces,
who rushed the bill through practi
cally withont debate, and forced the
Dingley botch through the house
without ever reading the bill.
The people would like at least to

mill is still grinding. Governor Rus
sell has just commuted the sentence
of the negro jockey who shot and
killed his fellow rider in the races at
the Newbern fair last February.
The crime was committed in the
presence of a very large crowd, and
the evidence in the case seemed to
be as clear as it could be. He was
convicted and sentenced; and now
the Governor commutes his sentence
and cheats the gallows.
Illinois Democrats have scored a
victory for the people. Yerkes and
the Chicago street railway combine
had introduced and seemed likely to
secure the passage of several bills
extending the franchises of all street
car lines in Chicago fifty years at the
present low rate. Mayor Harrison
and the Democrats after a hard fight
succeeded in tabling the bills.

In the death of Senator Joseph H.

the members of the Camp of Veter

begin to pass away rapidly, and
manv of them were oor and unable
to purchase their last resting place,
It has been pronounced on every
hand a fitting memorial. "New

soil, it pays perpetual tribute to the
gallant dead of the South. The
death and burial of old hatreds, and
the rebirth of national brotherhood,
could not be better typified." Its
grand appearance would indicate
that it will stand for centuries, and
upon its face will be read for gener
ations: "Sacred to the Memory of
the Heroic Dead of the Confederate

The monument is 60 feet high, on
a base of 10 feet. The shaft is 51
feet, 4 feet at base. The pedestal is
