The Democratic Committee
of Ohio Sounds It.
ADDRESS ISSUED TODAY.
The Voters of the State Ap
The View That Tariff Reform
Has Now Won.
MONEY IS SUPREME ISSUE.
Human Bodies Washed upon
the Shore at Key West.
General Drift of the Day's
roiiNRt s, O.. Oct. 4. The dem
neratic state executive committee of
which A. V. Thurman. son of Allen
i;. Thurman. is president, issued an
ti'hlress to the voters of Ohio today,
to the effect that tariff reform hav
ing won, the money question is now
the supreme one before the country.
It is a long argument under 20 heads
in favor of the free coinage of silver;
declares the money supply was cnt
in two when silver was demonetized
in T3; that gold has been steadilv
appreciating in vnlue. and labor and
product decreasing in price ever
since, because the production of gold
i not sullicicnt to keep pace with the
increase in population und business,
and the supply is not great enough
tn furnish a basis for paper nionev.
The decrease in all gold standard
countries has been the same, while
the prices remained sternly in the
silver standard countries. The
world's gold supply is practically
cornered, and the only relief is in
free silver. The free coinage of sil
ver does not mean the sudden infla
tion, for it is utterly impossible to
produce the precious metal faster
man it is needed for money.

As Related to the Pmtofllca at Chicago
Chicago, Oct. 4. Some davs am Post-1
master HesinR arranpod for a review of
the hundreds of letter carriers to be held
next Sunday on tho lnko front. The
schctno was Immediately attacked by
many of the clcrpynien of the city, who
not only profited in person to the post
master and to tho department at Wash
ington, but preached against it last Sun
day. The newspapers also took It up, and
the controversy waxed warm. The first
assistant postmaster srcneral gave his de
cision, a brief synopsis of which was
printed In theso dispatches yesterday,
which according to Mr. Hesing as re
ported in the following interview does not
amount to a victory for tho Sunday rest
people, who to a man were delighted with
Postmaster Tleslng Also Delighted.
Mr. Hesing has not received tho letter
of First Assistant Postmaster General
Jones by mail, but accepts the telegraphed
letter and expresses great joy at the posi
tion taken by that official, "for it not only
fully substantiates my views, sanctions
my actions, but even goes further than I
had expected," said he to a reporter. Con.
tinning, this Is the way he argues that the
decision sustains his own position: "In
tho first place the point at issue, was
whether or not an Inspection should be
held on Sunday, tho pulpit politicians of
Chicago declaring that in ordering a Sun
day inspection 1 had Violated tho regula-
intions. Mr. Jones says that Sunday is
the only tiny on which the inspection shall
be held, and njrrees with me that an in
spection is necessiirv
fcumln.r lienor rat ion" Sustained.
"Some of my critics said that an inspec
tion was unnecessary. Mr. Jones again
rebukes them and orders an inspection.
Now. whether the inspection takes Dim e
on the hike front or Dearborn street, or
at twenty-three stations in succession or
Bt three stations, on Sunday, nmkes no
difference. If it is Sabbath desecration to
inspect carriers on the lake front it is inst
as much Sahlmth desecration to inspect
them on Ih'nrlxirn street; and if the up
holders of the Sabbath can find any satis
faction in the letter of the assistant post
master general they are welcome to It."
Instruction fur Holding the lnsMTt ion
Mr. Hesing had made It optional with
the carriers to i.ttend, if they hod any
conscientious scruplus regarding the mut
ter, Imt Jones declares that it is not op
tional; that every carrier must attend
which also pleases the postmaster as
against the preachers. To make it option
al, Jones says, would not comply with the
law. Jones also argues for the necessity
for the insiMt-t.ion on Sunday on the
ground that to hold it any other day would
euiluirrass the handling of tho mail.
Hesing then quotes Jones' letter as fol
lows: "Hold the inspection at a conven
ient hour on Sunday afternoon in the cor
ridors of the Mistotlice if possible, and if
not on the sidewalks or streets in front of
the postoftiuc and stations. You will have
all the carriers in lino and .inspect them
A CASE OF IMPOSSIBILITY. '
Tlie Parade Cannot lie Held According to
Hesing then goes on to say: "In other
words Mr. Jones commands me to inspect
tho carrier force and to excuse uoImmIv on
account of religious scruples as I desired
to do and if possible to hold the Inspec
tion in the corridors of tho postoffioe.
Xow, the inspection cannot he held. It Is
impossible in the corridors of the postr
nllice. We have 1.400 carriers, of whom
114 use bicycles. Now, anyliody will read
ily see that this force cannot possibly lie
Inspected in tho corridors of the post
office." I In then refers to tho government build
ing ns an "old ruin" and says he would
not tinder any circumstances risk life by
holding the inspection in the building,
"for should any accident liefall them these
pulpit politicians would say that the rea
son a terrible calamity hnpcncd was be
cause they were required to lie insjieeted
on Sunday afternoon, and the order is
that all the carriers shall Ik; in line. All
the carriers cannot Ik in line, either in the
corridors of tho post office nor on the side
walks and streets in front of . the post
"The city authorities would not allow
IVnrhnrn and Adams street, for instance,
to lie blockaded for several hours, for that
would mean a blockixling of four lines of
cars and would cause endless inconven
ience, loss of life and money, and bring
down ion the postolfii-o, ns well ns upon
the city authorities, severe and just con
demnation. I am most dclighti-d that my
friend Mr. Jones lielieves in carrying out
us I do, to the letter, the postal luws and
"He makes it distinctly mandatory
that 'at a convenient hour on Sunday aft
ernoon this inspection shnll take place,'
thereby vindicating my position in favor
of ths afternoon of the Lord's lny, as that
is the time when the business community
would suffer the least, and when tho cur
riers would lie most pleased.
"For three reasons, then, I am delighted
with the letter of the first assistant post
miister general : In the first place liccausu
he recognizes tho great need of un inspec
tion; in the second pluce because he be
lieves in carrying out the postal regula
tions; in the third pluce liecuuse he be
lieves that all the carriers should lie in line
un Sunday afternoon.
"As our carrier force covers 125 square
miles, with twenty-three stations, some of
which arc twenty-five miles apart, it will
be readily seen tiiat it is a physical impos
sibility for me to inspect all these stations
in Sunday afternoon. It would take one
at least five duys to niako that inspection
at euch station.
