Apart from the autintanilul argumente set forth liy Mr. Iirlver. the people bad the plensure of lletrnlng to what might be termed a rellKlous-polltlral spin-vh a t.'i'll,tl novelty and Intereetlng In the extreme. The doctor said: "Lailh-a nnd gentlemen: In what I have to suy to you tonight I will con fine myself to fiwts. To the man or men who ulll not iniikc honest deduc tions from truthful assertions I have nothing to suy. "To Ih-kIii nlth, tin-re la something radii ally uroii " the nation.

In the month of Septemlier. 1W,, Sivretury t'arllsle i-oliied mon" sliver thun ever stumped us money In-fore the year of the great 'crime!' "The present condltlou Is nut brought uUiut by the Hold standard. For twenty years we hud that standard and during that time the country flourished. Now. If u man died nnd the coroner's Jury re turned a verdict of 'death from eating too much cabbage,' and It wua later proved that the ileeeawd had seen no cabbage for twenty years, would the Jury's verdict hold good?" The spfuki-r stilted that the popocrat Ic platform Is one muss of blunders, and would light us long as he could any man w ho would stand upon It and talk a Mr. llryan does. He seon-d ltrynn tor going about the nation Inciting labor ngnlnst capital, which, he snld. was th gl'eutest crime il man could commit. "Is there any conlllet between capital nnd labor?" asked the speaker. "What Is one without the other? Yet the popo- cratlo candidate Is trying to Incite the right hand against the left. "The popocrat tell us that congress committed a great crime In '73, by 'de monetising' silver. Now, silver never was demonetised. I'nder the constitu tion would congress stamp a piece of silver as a dollar and then turn around and say It Is not a dollar? In 1S73 tho standard sliver dollar was practically obsolete. Some years before the sliver men sent a petition to the director of the mint asking him to set the old dol lur aside and coin a trade dollar for -.the Chinese trnde. The old dollar con tained 4 1 2S grains and the trade dollar 7Hi grains mure 7V groins more of sil ver for the coolie than for the American wurklngmiui. "Of course, the Chinese brought the trade dollar back to us and we refused to take It, which left us without a dol lar, for the dies used to coin the old dollar were destroyed by law. Then, at the Instigation of the sliver mine own ers, came the Wand-Allison act, pro viding for the restoration to the circula tion of a certain limited quantity of the old standard dolUirs. Silver having still more rapidly declined, even under the stimulus of the purchase by the govern ment under this act of many tons of the silver miners' product each month, again the silver miners beseeched con gress for a further enlargement of the government's market for their goods and the Sherman purchasing clause was added to the mint law, requiring th government to take an amount of silver each month for coinage Into standard silver dollars, which actually exceeded the total product of all the silver mines In tho United States prior to 1S73. Hut still silver went down on the market, und ultimately President Cleveland was forced to convene an extra session of congress to repeal the Sherman act and save the country from the peril and disaster to its credit, due to Its maintenance of this vast quantity of silver In circulation at a parity with gold." Mr. Driver then' told a story In which a reporter called on Hob Ingersoll and linked his opinion as to the financial 'jin-stlou. "I want a Christian dollar," suld the Inlldel. "Well!" ejaiiilut-d the serllie, "I nl ways thought you were opposed to any thing Christian." "Ho I urn In a sense. Hut I want a Christian dollar a silver dollar which an look a paper dollar In the face and, with M side glance at a gold dollar, say, 'Our redeemer still lives!'-" The evennlg paper lust night quoted Mr. Iirlver ns having stated that the gold standard ls wrong and that, until j an Internationa agreement can be, reached, "we must grin and bear." This the speaker denied. He said ho had as-1 s,-rted thut the Itepublli an platform nev-.T declared, In favor of the single gold standard and offered to give 11,000 to the man who could prove It. He wa 1., thtt v..f,t li.ftx. ri Ullh tt Iwiti, tit. " " was arguing (iir. money d.-hj present platform waa not such a decla ration, and answered In the negative. "What t want I a 'Christian' dollar. If a man were clinging to a plunk bare ly large enough to hold hlrn up In the s.-u. wouldn't he hung on till the life- l,at arrived? Well, that's our tlx. We must cling to the gold standard till we can enter Into an International agree ment." The speaker demonstrated that Hry an has been misquoting lilalne through out the campaign and read the dead statesman's speeches In support of the assertion, proving that Hryan quotes but one purt of Hlalne's utterances and shows his dlhonety-for anything but the w hole truth Is a rsls. hood-whlch llryan as a lawyer well knowa. The gentleman rlose.1 his address by expounding the Mlnrlpl-s of protection and was loudly applauded as he took his scat. It was. perhaps, the most tn- ti-n-stlng slltlcal speech evar delivered In Astoria. The meeting closed with a few selections by the (!lc Club and considerable cheering for the next pres ident und Mr. In-lver. KAFFlit COItN Ft.iH POFLTRT.

Then, for example further, take India far away, In China, too, there's silver, but nary gold they say.

Wheat today was weak from the start and remained so practically all day, although there were occasional good rallies. The trend of the sentiment and current was against higher prices. Business was slow; and narrow and there was a disposition to rid of long wheat.

This was the first discouragement the bulls got. but It was followed by big deliveries In the northwest which were considerably in excess of those of last year. Another depressing factor was the at titude of Cudahy, who has been until quite recently the backbone and chief strength of the bull movement. His ag gregate sales must have run Into the millions during the past week. The market took this very well, until today. The almost entire absence of encourag ing news, coupled with this heavy gell ing created some apprehension and heled materially to weaken prices.

Craft, owners of ninety six shares of stock In the Albany Wool en Mills Company, of the value of $48,000 and constitute the whole board of directors. The Indebtedness of the I mill Is given as $120,000 and the value of the entire property, mill, goods notes, 'accounts, etc., $140,000. The complaint states that owing to the scarcity of money and the great depreciation In the j market value of properties, the defend ant ha not been able to secure funds j to meet the Indebtedness of the com they have PV! that a large amount of goods are ! In process of manufacture, therefore the appointment of a receiver of the property is asked for. L. Flinn was appointed receiver. The present "action was precipitated by an attachment of the property of J. M. Moyer & Co., of Portland, for $$.000 by the eastern firm of Lowenstey & Co., of Chicago. Application will be made to Judge Hewitt by the receiver for an order to run the mill until the stock on hand shall be usod up and orders , Ailed, and It will no doubt be granted.'! in rnillH 111 .- ',iun, iinv, i is believed that the finances of the com-: puny will be adjusted and the mills' will continue In operation.

SENSATION IN SAN FRANCISCO. . San Francisco, October 7. The rela tives of Walter Michael Castle, the wealthy San Francisco merchant, -who, with his wife, was arrested yesterday In London on a charge of theft, have made energetic appeals to the state depart ment at Washington for Interference on Castle's behalf. Secretary OIney tele graphed that he had cabled to Ambas sador Bayard, directing him to Investi gate the matter at once and report to him. The arrest of Castle and his wife has caused a tremendous sensation here on account of their wealth and social prominence. SHREWD TURKEY. Washington, October 7. The action of the Turkish government In giving It to be understood that no guardships of the power3 parties to the treaty of Paris shall be admitted to passage through the Dardanelles, is looked upon here aa a shrewd piece of diplomacy. The fact Is that thus far the United States haa not made any formal request to have a guardship at Constantinople and this announcement. In advance of the pref erence of a request, renders It improba ble that one will be preferred. MARYLAND ALL RIGHT. Balitmore, October 7.
