In his news paper, the Monitor. Senator William K. Chandler today prints a signed ed itorial endorsing the nomination of Mc Klnley and advocating his election. Re ferrlng to the financial question, the editorial advocates opposition to the free and unlimited rolnnKO of silver bullion, under existing conditions, by the I'nlted States atone, and Is more over opposed to the sliiKle gold stand nrd of money. I Wot Ion to the double standard la expressed In the following observations: "The existing gold standard must be preserved. If It Is so decreed, only until It Is possible to restore n double stand ard by International legislation. When ever the choice comes. If It ever must come, between permanent acquiescence In a single gold standard and the adop tion by the I'nlted States of a single silver standard, the Monitor and states man will not be found on the Bide of gold. Such a monetary system would everywhere tend to make the rich rich er and the poor poorer, and will Indict grinding poverty and Intense woe upon the great masses of helpless mankind all over the world." PREPARING FOR THE CAMPAIGN. Republicans Confident, While Demo crats Fear the Silver Specter. Washington, June SO. Representative Uabcock, of Wisconsin, the chairman of the Republican congressional cam paign committee, has returned from the St. Louis convention and Is setting the machinery of his committee In motion to elect as many republicans to the next house of representatives ns pos sible. The committee occupies nn ex tensive suite of rooms In the Norman- die Hotel. Representative Unbcock Is very con fident as to the result. He believes the Republicans will have no difficulty in electing a large majority of the mem bers of the next house of representa tives and that McKlnley's election Is ossurcd beyond all doubt. He admits that the Republeans will lose some Votes In certain states on account of their strong declaration nsalnst the free and unlimited coinage of silver, but he believes tliut, on the other hand, they will gain very lurgely through the accession of gold men from the Democratic ranks. He looks for a re shaping of political lines to some ex tent In all the states, and believes the republicans will profit by the changes that will take place.

Editor Astorlan; Dear Sir; While on a drift at 12:16 this afternoon near Peacock Spit, for the Royal Chinook, 1 was Ave minutes late in picking up, and caught an un expected breaker, which completely turned the boat over, submerging both myself and partner, Carl Erlxon. I munuged to gain hold of the upturned bunt but was repeatedly washed off among booms, net, and oars, but suc ceeded In getting back to the boat without very much exhaustion, while Carl was driven about fifty feet away from the bout and tangled In the net without anything to buoy him save a few corks and was becoming; exhausted from being repeatedly washed under. Thus while struggling with the ele ments n shout was heard, "Hang to it boys, we will save you." Upon looking around, and to my happy surprise, saw the white life boat close at hand, manned by a brave, noble-hearted crew. Carl was first extricated from the net, Inhlch he was hopelessly tnngled for self-dellverence, and my rescue soon followed. It was not more than ten minutes from the time we swamped until we were secure on the life boat. - The tide was Hooding and In a short time all was smooth water, driving up the north channel, where the noble boys picked up all our drift ing gear, net end boat, and safely land ed everything of our outfit that was alloat, beside performing; the act of "good Suinarltan," took us In, stripped our wet clothing off, put on dry flannels and ..- us. Too much cannot be said In common dutlon of this life saving crew, for a more proficient set of men could not be mustered together. They v?re luy Ing at anchor Just Inside of the break ers, waiting for some work to do, and saw my boat swamp. Hence our early deliveinnce. Inasmuch as the nams of this life saving crew may not be generally known, and while thanking botb captain and crew most cordially for tl rit kindly treatment, I desire to annex their names to notice: Captain, Chas. D. Stewart; Surfmen, G. H. Rice, J. S. Clark, D. C. Stoner, J, L. Nulter, It. P. Scannell, C. Hunt, J. C. Peterson. N. P. Adnmson. Respectfully yours, C. H. CHASE. TO BE 'A SILVER Clans (Jathcrimj in Cbicayu t'repara tnry to the Democratic row-Wow. 1 1 I I. I K IS THE ONLY .MAX Democrat do thocc Who Will Be Sup ported by the Silver KepiiMicia. Comliimmj to Secure Tem porary )tlicer. Chicago, June 20. The delegates who have arrived generally appear ad verse to discussing the probability that Senator Teller will cut any figure in the Democratic convention. The sena tor bus a number of friends among the silver delegates who have already ar rived and among them are some who would not be averse to his nomination for president They feel, however, that the conditions are not ripe for the springing of his name, and say It wouM be opjxised to the Interests of both Tel ler and the silver cause to bring him to the front at this time, If at all. There are also a number of Teller's silver Republican friends and Populists In the city w ho ate devoting themselves more to watching the course of events than to any active work. The Populists who are here say openly that Teller Is the only man the Democrats can name that they will endorse. The sil ver Republicans are not so pronounced. They put the matter less pointedly by saying that Teller is the only man whose nomination would Insure the western states to the Democratic tick et. It Is not now the "purpose of the senator's friends to have hlra placed In nomination, as others will be. This course they consider will be In bad form and contrary to Teller's wishes. Their plan Is not to make an aggres sive campaign, but simply to be on the ground to answer questions and to take advantage of any opirtunlty that may offer. Chicago, June SO. The committee ap- iKilnted by the Democratic bimetallic committee to confer with the executive committee of the national Democratic committee will meet the gentlemen comprising this organization at the Palmer House tomorrow. The mem bers of the executive committee, with whom the silver men conferred today, assured them that no step had been taken looking to the selection of tem porary officers. This had the effect of causing the members of the bimetallic organization to feel that possibly their apprehensions were unfounded and to conclude that probably there will be no effort at snap judgment. They will, however, make their call and present a statement of the action of the bimetal lic committee and ask that the com mittee be allowed to suggest a tempo rary presiding officer. If this request is not granted they will report to their full committee and the full committee will proceed to se lect a man for the place and prepare for his election at the outset of the convention In the face of a contrary nomination by the national committee. The silver men are very determined upon the point of not being thwarted In this matter and are giving their at tention to it. They will tell the nation al committee very' plainly that the only w ay to avoid a clash In the convention and for the national committee to avoid being repudiated Is for them to accede to the wishes of the silver men in this matter. They assert that it will have to be made apparent from the begin ning that It is to be a silver convention, and that this can be demonstrated In no way so clearly ns In the selection of the temporary presiding officer. The silver men have given very little attention to the question as to who shall be selected to preside, but spec ulation turns more freely to Senator Harris, of Tennessee. DEAD OR ALIVE. Fiftvnlne Men Imprisoned In a Coal Mine. Wllkesbarre, Pa., June 30. There are fifty-nine men, living or dead, Impris oned in the depths of the doomed mine. This is the official number and there' is no reason to think it is Incorrect. The cave-In at the Janesvllle some years ago offers a precedent for the officials of the. twin shaft. As long as there is a possibility of any of the men being alive, they feel It their duty to continue the work of attempted rescue. In the Janesvllle cave-In six men were Imprisoned in the breast of the mine for nineteen days. On the 19th day they were reached. Five men were" dead and one was alive. The living man was "Big Joe," a Polander. He is now employed as a carpenter at Hazel ton. eH has been interviewed on the probable fate of the nun In the Pitts ton.

A Trip to Europe Will Cost 110 More Than It Formerly Did. New York, June 30. Representatives of the continental steamship linea sail ing between New York and ports on the continent of Europe at a meeting held on Monday arrived at an agree ment increasing the first and second cabin pasage rates by about seven per cent after July 15. The Increase will amount to from (5 to 110 on each pas sage. The lines which are Included In this agreement are the North German Lloyd, the Hamburg-American, the Red Star and French lines. The Brit ish lines arrived at a similar agreement some months ago. The cause of the Increase, the steam ship agents declare, is that the ac commodations on ocean liners have been steadily Improved, without a cor responding Increase In price, until the margin of profit has been absorbed. The outgoing rate only will be in creased on July 13. The rate from Europe will remain as at present until October 15. and the steerage rate will remain unchanged. McKIXLEY TO REST. Canton, June 30.

In welcom ing the Confederate veterans at the reunion today, Gov. O'Farrell said: "You were enlisted In those bands who wrote their names in glory's sklea and carved them deep In the temple ot fame, who made the cause of the South so Imperishable and the renown of her armies so faultless. It was neither con quest nor power for which you fought; it was the defense of home and coun try. The tights for which the founders of this republic struck were no more sacred to them than the rights for which you struck were dear to yoo. If you were rebels, so were the fathers ot the constitutional liberty of 13) years ago. If you fought to sever your con nection with a union whose bonds were galling, so did the men now immortal ized in song and story, when they snapped the cord of British allegiance In 17;." Gen. Wade Hampton was loudly call ed for. The band struck up "Dixie. while the whoje audience arose and ap plauded. The veteran was passed to the front bearing an old battle flag; that had been shot through In many places, and waved It before the vast assemblage. When Gen. Hampton was permitted to speak he said words could not express his gratitude for the great honor which had been done him. He had come to mingle with the veterans perhaps for the last time and do honnr to the memory of that great man. Pres ident Davis. The general said he would still be fighting If the Confederate flag was waving. (Great applause.) He had no apology to make for his course. In conclusion he said the only epi taph he wanted written on his tomb stone was that he was a Confederate soldier. ARGUMENT COMMENCED. Suit of the Astoria Road Against the Northern Pacific.
