The year 1896 waa a year of po

leading parties underwent great
changes, and the number of inde
pendent voter waa increased a
thousand fold. Mr. Cleveland's sec
ond administration began with the
country on the verge tf a financial
crash: The blow descended and
panic of 1893 -was on. The money
question, which both parties had
so carefully sidestepped for many
years, was presented in such a way
that tbe administration could not
avoid taking a position. Mr. Cleve
land and his cabinet decided to
place the country squarely on "the
gold standard, and to disregard the
petty sops which had been thrown
to silver. The treasury regulations
accomplished this purpose long be

A Year of Split Parties. I
All through the three yeara ofthe
Clereiand administration leading
up to tbe campaign of 1896 there
was constant strife in both parties.
For a time it seemed thai the Re
publicans' would declare for free
ailrer and that the Democrats would
follow their president in advocacy
for tbe gold standard. Then it

Mr. McKinley and Speaker
Thomas B. Reed were the leading
candidates tor the Republican nom
ination for president Mr. McKin
ley had the good fortune to hare
Mark Hanna for his political cap
tain. Hanna organized the states
and took eren New England away
from Reed long before tbe conven
tion met Mr. Hanna waa afraid of
the money question and Mr. Mc
Kinley was committed by bis rec
ord to "bimetallism." So the Ohio
leaden attempted to "straddle" the
Issue once more. The Ohio state
platform contained a delphic ut-;
terance oa tbe money question
which said nothing.
But whan the national conrention
met at St Louis, MY. Hanna found
that the question was one which
waa too hisr to be straddled. Sen
ator Thomas C. Piatt of New York
forced 'Hanna to accept a gold
standard platform It waa later
modified by a pronouncement in
faror of international bimetallism,
which permitted Republicans who
had bean abouting for ailrer to come
dowav gracefully. Senator - Piatt
may not be regarded aa a great
statesman; but ia 1898 and 1900 be
