The financial law euaeatod i less than a year ago contains a run- : eluding section declaring that the measure vas not Intended to stand In J the way or the restoration ot bimetal- ' Usui, whenever It could be done by 1 co-operation with other nations. The platform submitted to the lost Repub lican convention with the Indorsement ot the administration aguln suggested the possibility of securing foreign aid In restoring silver. Now the Uepui'llcnti party, for th first time, openly abandon it ad vocacy ot the double standard, and til donee the monetary system which It hn so often and so euiphntlea'ly con demned, Tho Democratic mrty. on tn military, remains the steadfast advo cate of the gold and silver coinage of the constitution, and Is not wlll'nt that other nations shall determine tor us the time and manner or restoring silver to It ancient plucn as a stand ard money.

The abolition of government by Injunction Is aa necessary for tho protection of the reputation of tho court, as It Is for the security of Uto citizen. Illackstone !u defending trial by Jury, says: "The Imimrtlul administration or Justlre, which secures both our persons, nnd our properties Is the great end or civil society, but If that be ontrustod entirely to the magistracy, a select body or men, and those selected by the prince such ns enjoy tho hlgfiest otllce or the state their decisions In spite ot their natural Integrity, will have frequently nn Involuntary bias Inward those of Iholr own rank, and dignity.

The blacklist enable employers to se cure, by mutual agreement, thut con trol over the wage earner whleh a private monopoly ojEorcisen without runlraot. Arbitration, The platform renew the demand tor arbitration between corporatluni and their employe. No one who ha observed the friction whleh arises be tween great corporations and their numerous employe can doubt the wladont ot establishing an Impartial court for the Just and equitable set tlement ot disputes. The demand for arbitration ought to be supported as heartily by the public, which suffers Inconvenience bceauea of strikes and lockouts, and by the employer them selves, ns by the employe. The estab lishment of arbitration will Insure friendly relations between labor and capital, and render obsolete tho grow ing praetlee of calling in the arwy to settle labor troubles. lUportmsnt ot Itxr, I cannot too strongly emphasize tht Importance ot tho platform recom mendation of the establishment ot a department ot labor, with a member of the cabinet al Ita head. When we remember how Important a position the laborer fills In our economic, so cial and political fabric. It Is hard to conceive of n valid objection boJng made to this recognition ot his serv ice. Agriculture la already represent ill In the preeWm's olftolil household; vision for those who. In the hour of dnitgei. and at great sacrifice of btisl nee, health anil life, tender their service to their country.

The failure of the Republican party ta make any prog ress In carrying out a pledey contained In Its platform four yenrti ago. together with the substitution In Its latest pint form of a plunk favoring an Isthmian canal for a sited fir declaration lu fa vor ot the N len rngutt n canal, would In dicate Hint tho Republican leaders either do not appreciate the importance 67 this great waterway to the marl- time strength nnd commercial Inter ests ot tho country, or that they glvo too much consideration to the Interest ed opposition of transcontinental linos.
