Now or Never Ton Much Delay Al
Denver, July 13 In marked contrast
with the fiery utterances In the silver con
vention was the .'. !ress arlopted. The re
port from the committee on resolutions
was in the form of .in appeal to the people
of the Unite! States asking their calm and
can liil con: lerition of the facto relating
to silver mining and the attempt to de
monetize silver. The al Ires contains
alout words. The history of the sil
ver legislation of the past twenty years was
reviewe 1 from a silver standpoint, and the
adilre-s continues. "The enemies of bi
metallismand they r.ow fairly number
all those who oppose free coinage for silver
alike with gold, as it was before the de
monetization of silver in 1-73 o;enly de
clare that they will lie content with noth
ing less than the unconditional repeal of
the silver purchasing clause of the Sher
man law It is for that they struggle; it
was to secure it that the panic was created
anil free coinage in India suspended.
The Charge of Conspiracy.
Unconditional repeal' That means
striking from the laws the last remnant of
legislation that secures coinage for silver.
It fixes the United States firmly in the
ranks ofthes.ns'.e standard nations. It
is the consummation of the conspiracy or
ganized at the close of the Franco-Prussian
war to destroy as money on ultimate
redemption ov?-h ilf of the coined money
of the w-,rM. leaving th? other one-half to
bear alone the vw mountain of credit
upon which the world's business is con
ducted, inviting more fr "jnent panics and
rendering them more destructive and en
during. Remai ks on the Sherman I-aw.
"The Sixer-inn law is not the work of
the silver producing state. It was forced
upon the country against their will.
mt 'iem in 1 has h'-oa that of j
rural states of the west and i
south ami of the working masses of the
whole country. Tliey have not sought to
impose upon the country some new finan
cial nostrum, but have asked simply for
the restoration of the coinace laws as ther
were from the first year of the federal con
stitution until the furtive repeal of 1ST3.
The Sherman law was the trick by which
that restoration was defeated. It was
accepted by bimetallists as a pledge that
the old laws should at some future time
be restored, and they now demand, not
that the Sherman law be retained, but
that the hostage shall be redeemed by the
re-enactment in its stead of the coinage
laws under which the country grew and
prospered for more than three-quarters of
' i Close of the Address.
The charae that the bimetallists de
mand that CO cents shall be made a dollar
is denounced as a lie. Regarding the
statement that Colorado would repudiate
her debts the address says: "We of Colo
rado pride ourselves upon onr commercial
and financial integrity. No calamity can
induce us to repudiate one dollar of an
honest debt. All our assets are at the will
of our creditors for their reimbursement."
In closing the address says: "Hopeful of
speedy delivery from the crushing burden
of a financial system begotten of the greed
of Great Britain's remorseless money
power, and the prosperity.inseparable f rom
an American system which includes the
free coinage of gold and silver at the
American ratio of sixteen to one. we sub
to the people of the United States this
statement of our cause."
Delegates were chosen to the St. Louis
and Chicago conventions.
BLAND WRITES A LETTER.
fie Say, the Time is Now for the Advocates ;
St. Loris. July 13. The Chronicle nul
ILshes a lengthy letter from Congressman
Richard P. Bland, the great apostle of bi
metallism and and uncontrolled currency.
A synopsis of the letter is as follows: "The
war between gold monometa'.lists and bi
metaTlists is now intensely flagrant. Men
and parties as well as public journals must
take the one side or the other; there is no
room for trimmers or doubters. The
Sherman law must go, but its expiring
breath must breathe into life legislation
on thelines of true bimetallism. The timid
in our ranks have brought us to the expe
dient of the Sherman law and now insist
on further waiting,
"Had we adopted the free coinage bill
that I had passed through the house of
representatives in the last session of the
Forty-fourth congress all would have been
settled in favor of bimetallism. Had the
senate agreed to this bill or the subsequent
one that I had passed in the Forty-fifth
congress, " we would have no silver ques
tion today. But no, we must wait; wait
till France and the Latin Union get im
patient with us and put further limits to
their silver coinage. During last congress
I did all I could to pass a free coinage bill
in the house, the senate having already
passed it. But no, the tariff was the great
issue. We must first reform the tariff.
"Now the tariff is brushed aside that
silver demonetization may be accom
plished. Had we then passed a free coin
age bill the question would have been
settled. We would not have been con
fronted with the British demonetizing
policy for India. How much longer are
we to lie controlled by the advocates of the
waiting policy, dallying. We are now by
this brought face to face with the onstinn
Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
ot total silvtr demonetization in this the
greatest metallic power tne world ever
knew. The repeal cf the Sherman law
unconditionally is all that is necessary
now to accoLiplish the end for which the
gold party have struggled from the begin
ning. "1 lie Denn critic party promised first of
all a reform -.f the tariff. Tariff reform is
no longer taled of, except in bated breath.
The east proposes to formulate a tariff pol
icy on the li les of the original Chicago
platform bro i$ut forward by the protec
tion element of the Democratic party, and
not in hanaoay with the substitute finally
adopted by the convention. They r.ow also
projtose to re:s?al the Shermaa law without
granting the free coinage part of our plat
form. The fc.st rode the ltepublican party
down to disaster and death; now they are
bestride the r ecks of the Democrats. The
east seem to haw no use for the govern
ment especif lly the west and southwest
portion of it except towring the last drop
of sweat and Mood from the people.
"Our eastern friends seem to rezard the
Democratic p at form and the silver ques
tion as a mere see saw. As the Sherm.n
law end goes down the free coinage end
must go up ii mid air and remain sus
pended there. It is plain to all now that
they played a huge bunco game on the De
mocracy of the south and west by lustily
preaching ta. ff reform a measure so pop
ular here but at the same time intending
to sprinu tipor us after the election the
sole issue of s.lver demonetization. If the
representatives of the west and south are
true to themr-elves and the interests of
their constituents this conspiracy will net
.succeed. If they are recreant the people
j will hold them individually, if not collec
tively, responsible for their cringing cow
j -The repeal f the Sherman law outright
j and substitute nothing for it would pre
cipitate a silver panic throughout the
world and ptobably cause the universal
demonetization, a consummation devoutly
wished by the gold party. It seems to me
no true frien 1 of silver could advocate
such a policy. If we ever intend the free
coinage of silv r in this country we must
war for it now right cow."

FUNERAL CF THE KREIDERS
It Gives Half a Di.ren Pennsylvania Town
ships a Holiday. I
Lancaster, Pju, July 13.-Tbe most
sensational funeral ever held in this coun
ty, if not in the st ite.was that of Daniel S.
Kreider, wife and four children, who were
murdered at ,Caulo, N. D., by Albert
Bamberger. The bodies were laid side by
side in Kisser's Xenonite meeting house
in Mount Joy township, and as early as 6
o'clock in themming when the doors
were opened a steady stream of people
poured into the building to get a look at
the murdered peoj le. Even at 4 a. m. the
roads leading to t,he church were filled
with vehicles which by the time an
nounced for the services filled every avail
able space witb.it half a mile of the
Is is estimated that there were 3,000 car
riages and 15,000 persons present. Owing
to the crowd services were held both In
and outside the c lurch. The jam to get
into the building to see the victims was so
great that many jromen fainted. Those
who got among the crowd were forced in
by the pressure, and the only way of exit
was through a window. The bodies were
laid side by side in one grave, fourteen
feet long and seven and one-half feet wide.
Earthquake at Albuquerque.
ALBCQ.cerq.ce, N M-, July 13.-Two dis
tinct earthquake i hocks were felt here.
The first was not very strong, but the
second, following a few minutes later, oc
casioned considerable uneasiness by the
movement of gooes. The undercurrent
came from the west, where an extinct vol
rano exists, and it if thought here that the
volcano is again in truption.
INDICTED A JUDGE,
And One of Your Uncle Sam
uel's at That.
THE GRAND JUST AT MILWAUKEE,
Judge Jenkins. Seventh Judical Circuit,
Greahatn't Successor, In the Plankinton
Dank Dragnet Scooped Because He ITai
Director and Vnder SIS, 000 Rond
Nobody Get, Away Who Was Connected
With the Rank.
Milwaukee, July 13 All the directors
of the Plankinton bank, which failed soma
weeks ago as the result of the suspension
of Frank A. Lappen & Co., whose worth
less paper the bank held to the extent of
1290,000, and the heavy run and lass of con
fidence which resulted, have been indicted
by the grand jury. Among these direct
ors was Judge Jenkins, of the Seventh
United States judicial circuit. The in
dictment of Judge Jenkins is the most
sensational part of the grand jury's work.
There is a difference of opinion among
lawyers as to what effect the indictment
will have ou his position on the bench.
Some maintain that a judge is as liable to
indictment as any other man and that it
will make no difference to him as a United
States circuit judge Others say that
while he appears as a criminal before the
bar of the municipal court he can hardly
sit on the bench of the United States
court and that he should resign.
The 9ndge Wa First to Appear.
All the papers necessary for the arrest
of the indicted men wore promptly made
out, and Deputy Sheriff Lacey started out
to look them up. The first of the indicted
men to appear was United States Circuit
Judge James G. Jenkins. He was shown
into Judge Walaber's private office, in
company with Frank G. Uigelow, who will
be one of his bondsmen. Judge Jenkins
did not appear to ! particularly disturled
by his unpleasant pit-dicaruent, and pre
served his usual grave demeanor. Next
came Eugene S. Elliott, another director,
who was accompanied by C. L. Clason.
Mr. Elliott declined to talk about the sit
uation but preserved his usual cheerful
demeanor. Mr. Clason was also a director
of the bank.
Flankinton Shows Cp on Time.
William Plankinton, a director and the
receiver of the defunct bank, was the
fourth of the indicted men to come. The
officers of the bank were: President,
Frederick T. Day; vice president, William
Plankinton; cashier, W. H. Momsen; as
sistant cashier, Joseph Moody; Directors
F. T. Day, William Plankinton, F. W.
Noyes, Judge James G. Jenkins, Eugene
S. Elliott, and W. H. Momsen. F. W.
Noyes, one of the directors who is also in
dicted, is sick at home, but will appear in
court as soon as he is able. Judge Wall
be r fixed bail at $3,000 on each count,
which makes the lail $15,000 each.
What the Indictments Charge.
The indictments charge the receiving of
money when it was known the bank was
insolvent and specifying the three dates,
May 15, lt and 31. In each of these cases
the officers and all directors are concerned,
and in addition to this Messrs. Day, Plank
inton and Momsen are charged with the
same offense as officials of the bank. Tv e
The arrests were a mere formality ard
Judge Wallber directed the deputy shei it
to allow all privileges with reference to tl.e
procuring of bail.
Heavy Penalty for the Offense.
The penalty for the offense charged is
from one to ten years ia prison, or not
more than a fine of S10,0"0. It is not known
at present where Lappen is. Until recent
ly he had been living quietly on the north
side in Chicago, but rumor has it that he
is not there now. Day i-. in a sanitarium
in Indiana, and an officer with a capias
will probably start after him at once.
JUDGE LYNCH AND HIS WORK.
The Pretty "Advanced Civilization
He Proposed in Dakota.
Devil's Lake, N. D., July 13. Sheriff
Fadden, of Grand Forks, wired Sheriff Mc
Cune, of Cando, as follows: "Come and
take Bamberger. People are getting ex
cited, and I cannot protect the prisoner
And this is how Cando people propose to
keep up to date" in (Texas) civilization:
The plan was to put the prisoner in the
house in which he committed the crime,
saturate it with kerosene and let him
slowly burn to death.
But the sheriff thought better of it. He
whisked the prisoner off to Crookston and
finding that a lynching party was only an
hour behind smuggled him out of that
place, and has probably taken hini to Bis
marck. Lynching in Florida.
