The National Democratic convention which couveues at Chicago next Tuos day, Is pretty certain to he ono of the most interestintr in our history. It will not be surprising if its sessions are prolonged for a, fortnight. Ihe chances are that it. will disrupt the Democratic party, as it was disrupt ed in 180)0. At least human foresight is not suflicient to point out i way that it can avoid splitting into two parts. Follies and blunders and unreusoning sectionalism may again so weakeu the historical organizations as to relegate it.to a period of long minority.as worse m "adness did in 1800, but the flippant folk who are predicting the obliter ation of the party by the free silver wave or any other cause, think very superficially. The Democratic party has existed. from the foundation of the Government, in spite of all aberra tions and inconsistences, and betrayals netditure. Last year1 the deficit was $42,000,000 and for the vear 1894 while the McKinley law was in full force, it was 870,000,000. . The Montpelier Watchman contin ues to talk uelv. It declares that the oauciij of the late governor canvass were "polluted by fraud and crooked ness" but in Bpite of it all Stickney J trot a lead of some 20 votes "which i " . were wiped out Dy miamous means. An then it sounds this warning: The Stickney people, after the re cent coup at Burlington, are not in a frame of mind to stand any proceeding t. or any arraignment of their course or motives. I Three of the leading republican papers gin Vermont, the Middlebury Register, j Jutland Herald and Montpelier Watch- fijt'a .,1 1.... man, agree in cnargmg uiul uk J I stitte convention was controlled by the ' a uying of votes.

The Watchman tells of the ease hi another delegate in its county, who, junior has it, was ofl'ered a large sum to rote for tirout and spurned tne oner. Te has a poor opinion of the republican voters of Vermont who believes they arc party. As long as there is a tendency in human affairs, which is constant, though ever taking different shapes, toward over-government, towards ab sorption! of privilege and power, there will of necessity be a Democratic par ty with its "foundation idea of closely limiting the functions of government It stands for a force, though so often wrongfully directed, that is indispen sible to the progress of civilization- at least until the era of safe socia ism comes. There is haraiy a chance for doubt now that free silver will control the convention. Secretary Morton says silver is like a mad bull. It has got the road, and is going to keep it. do not know anything that is going to stop it. " Even Ex-Secreatary Whit ney, who has thrown all his energies into the effort to defeat the silver cru sade admits that unless tho situation changes, there is no chance whatever for sound money.

Gov. Boies, the most moderate and thought ful of them, admits the strong prob ability that a financial convulsion would follow free coinage, though he believes the after-effects would more than compensate. He also admits tht he does not feel '.'absolutely certain" that gold and silver could both be maintained at parity under free coin age of the latter, though he expects it. In other, words he concedes the chance that his scheme may result in silver monometalism instead of bimet alism, simply reducing us to the money standard of Mexico, South A uierica and Asia, as distinguished from most of Europe. The free silver men on the face of the returns have somewhat over 200 majority of the convention, but even if the silver delegatons from Texas and Nebraska are admitted, they will fall about 40 short of the two thirds necessary to nominate. The situation is one to invite a deadlock, which there are only three way of breaking, conciliation, abrogation of the two- thirds rule or stealing control of the convention. Conciliation is seemiolgy impossible unless it includes the plaftorm, for nobody wants a repetition of the folly of 18G4 and the nomination of a can didate on a platform which he will have to repudiate. But the silver men believe that they can yield nothing of theirtdemand without yielding their whole cause and so the prospect of any compromise is poor ndeed. The 'abrogation of the two-thirds rule, which has existed since the very first Democratic convention, ought also, to have any semblance of fairness in it, to include the abrogation of the unit rule: for unless it does, compell ing the vote of individual delegates to be cast against f their convictions, it would very often and possibly in this case, permit a real minority to control the convention. There are a lot of state delegations instructed to vote as a unit for silver that contain anti Bilver men. A week ago it seemed as if the breaking of this rule might possibly save the day against silver; but the mischief of it is that silver men are appearing in delegatous where their existence was not suspected. One of the Massachusetts delegates, Jeremiah O'Sullivan of Lawrence, an nounces himself for silver and he say there will be half a dozen in that del egaton. How far this tort of thing may extend there is no knowing, but it is to be feared that there is enaugh of it to take, away the last hope of the Whitney campai n. The unit rule has never before been applied in voting for platform, and ought not to be now. But if it is and at the same time its complement, the two-thirds rule, abroagted as to candi dates, vast ugliness cannot fail to be developed. But this seems to be what he silver men are' determined to do if tl,.. i"-nnt accomplish their purpose in j i - r -T-v. and there will besome g ..-J hard fighting over rt. 1 Their alternative plan is to ilunua Isse Min convention not so extensively as was done at St. Louis, because it Is not nccesFaiy,but sufficiently to get two thirds control. Tho Michigau del egation,, instructed to vote as a unit, contains l'l free silver men to 15 so- called gold men. Tho silvorites have got up contests against two of the gold men,'' on the grouud that ultornatus took tho place of silver delegutes in the conventions tint elected them. In butli cases the dec tion was made unanimous, but if by HaniiH tactics the contestants can bo eatcd, the Michigan vote can then be cast as it unit on the free silver side, nd give it two thrds. Tho fight will begin in the national committee, whoro it is doubtful which side has a majority, in making up the temporary roil. .From there it is pret ty certain to go to tho floor of the con vention and to bo accompanied by an othor over the tomporary chairman. The gold men" want Senator Hill and many silver men declare that they will tight him, and unless the committee gives them the chairmanship, they wil' defeat its recommendation and take the bits in their teeth from the begin ning. From this point every step promises to bo one of ' wrangle. In a general way the stillest possible fight is to be put up and every pofsible arg ument brought to bear against the sil ver propoganda. IJ ill is expected to lead it on the floor, especially if beat en for the temporary chairmanship, with all the parliamentary skill and resources at his command. Nt only are Whitney and Hussell and great leaders of their rank, going to put in their utmost of persuasion, but com mercial organizations and Democratic busness men from all the great ctes of the south and west, especially from the homes of all the free silver candi dates, are going to send delegations to protest against a free coinage plank. The movement represented by them is one of tremendous force and if in-1 augurateil early enough might have had saving power. But now it is to bo feared that its only effect wil bo to stengthen the tendency to split. The free silver argument has had two strong reinforcements this week iu tho conversion of two eminent bi- metalists'who had before insisted on international action as the onlv true solution, to the belief that the United States can safely take the lead alone and that she ought to do it. The first is Henri Cernuschi.the "father of bi metalism" as he was called, and cer- ainly the foremost in Europe in the agitation for it, who just before his death last spring, left a paper, only ust published, in which he said if he were an American he would loin the ilver extremists, because it had lie- hcome evident England was not dispied for the present to overlook her selfish nterests as a creditor country in an ppreciating gold standard. Ho add ed : From a theoretical point of view. the free coinage of silver at 10 to 1, re es tablished by the United States with out the concurrence of Europe would be a vicious solution, but it would nevertheless be a step in the direc tion of international bimetalism: for, under the regime of the new standard the productive power of the United States would receive so enormous an impulse, and this development would have such a disastrous effect upon the economic and financial interests of England and the other European na tions now governed by the gold stand ard, it may be confidently predicted in advance that the course of events would force the adoption of interna tional bimetallism as tho only true so lution, even upon those who today deny tho possibility and efficacy of it. M. Cemuschi thus concedes that the effect of free coinage would be to drive gold out of circulation. But President Andrews of Brown Univer sity, president of the bimetallic league of Boston, formed to influence) ISuro pean opinion, and who was one of our representatives at the last internation al conference, announces himself for free coinage for just the opposite rea son. He says : Tho vast now output of gold in re cent years, as compared with that of silver, impresses me that free coinage by us alone would not lead to the dis placement of our gold : that, there fore, free Coinage would be safe If it is safe, it is certainly desirable. Of course, no toe can be absolutely cer tain that we could proceed with silver free coinage and yet retain our gold. I therefore do not dogmatize, but leave that to the gold men. To myjmind, however, the overwhelming probability is that gold would stay with us. I nave noticed or late no serious argu ment to show what it would not It May Da Much lor Von.

This is evidently to be one of the queerest cumpaigus American politics hae,ever seen. Almost any tlevclpp nient Is in the range of possibility, Thoro is near an infinitude of combi nations that may be made before its close. The political elements are in a Btate of solution. Not until after the Chicago convention, if even tlitn, can any intelligent estimate be made of the crystHlizations that may take place. There is little doubt that the out come at Chicago will be two Dem ocratic tickcta,but no one can tell what dimensions the bolt will take on, what size the anti-silver strength will final" ly reduce itself to, how much the ten dency to"stick by tho party" will work against it,whetherjit will take out as small a contingent as went with Teller from the St. Louis convention, or whether it will number from a third to a half of the whole body. More portentous thau all, no one can tell how far from fairly representing their constituencies either convention may have been. On the one hand it is clear that the great silver preponderance in the Chicago convention does not ac curately measure the Democratic senti ment of the country because an or ganized canvasB has been making by the silver men for a year past, as they now admit, while. the other side slept in fancied security. On the other it is clear from the popular ovations which Ithe r- . . l. . : r , .1 n , f iuiMiiH vaDuuD and me i'ihiuul.hi bolters have received on their return home, including even Towne of Minn., whose colleagues refused to bolt with him, that the Republican free silver sen timent is far greater and. more wide spread than St. Louis gave any indica tion, and this is naturally the fact be cause the pre convention canvass among the Republicans was one over men. Even in New England and the East every day's developments show the silver sentiment to be of far greater dimensions than has been suspected We see it iu the declaration of one of Massachusetts Democratic delegates. Wo see it in several Democratic coun ty conventions in New York that have declared for silver. A silver man tells us that in Rutland there are 100 busi ness men ready to join a silver club. Scores of the ablest men in both par ties in Vermont, including ono of the ablest and purest we ever had in pub lic life. Ex Gov. Burs tow, and a cor respondingly strong man on the Dem ocratic sid. (5eo.E.Royce of Rutland, j might be named who are pronounced for free silver. The .unsolved problem is how far these men are gWiug to chango their old party allegiance. Upon all sides, if individual convictions are voted. wnicn win De. the tendency or a cam paign on this issue, it would mean the obliteration of old party lines for the ti me being. The indications are that Bland, w ho is certainly the logical candidate of silver, , bis very namelidentified with the cause as McKinley's is with pro tection, will go into the Chicago convention as the leading capdidate. But Gov. Boies, is the greatest personal ity of them all, the man about whom what conservatism there is will rally, while there will be a strong movement for Senator Teller. Though life-long Republican, he would have peculiar strength in the south, be cause he was really the man who killed the force bill. Though avowed ly a high protectionist himself, his re cent action in tbe senate in defeating the tariff bill, to force terms for nil' ver, will commend him above any oth .er Republican to the free silver Dem ocrats who are generally radical low tariff men. But his nomination could not fail to produce revolt among old line uemocrats, who want no mure Grey ley i zing, and so add to the strength of a bolting gold Democratic ticket. On the other hand the nom ination of Boies, Bland, Stevenson, Blackburn or.any of the old Democrats, would be hard for the free silver Re publicans to swallow, and would in volve an inconsistency, beoajse as a rule they are higher-tariff in their views than the general mass of Re publicans in the west and protection and free silver are somewhat kindred in principle, and free silver, practi cally doubling duties, would be the strongest protective measure that could be adopted. Still Peffer, Dubois and the free sil ver leaders generally believe that a union in some way of these different elements is necessary to win. Harvey, the author of "Coin's Financial School" lias a scheme to all support Bland for president on condition that he shall have the appointment of only one cabinet officer, secretary of state, then that the Democrats shall endorse tho populist candidate for vice pres ident. Senator Marion Butler,and then that three cabinet positions be pledged to the silver Republicans. Teller, sec retary of the Treasury, Judge Caldwell attorney -genera I and Mayor Pingree of Detroit postmaster-general. If this cannot be done before election, he thinks the only hope will be to com bine after election on any candidate they can win with. For instance, if straight Democratic electors are elect ed in tho south. silver Republican elec- , tors in Colorado and Nevada, populist j electors in North Carolina and Kan- saw, they wiil have a right under the j constitution to past theif votes us ! tiy please. Th' trouble with sgi-h drajs as these is always the difficulty of deliv ering the goods: but it carnot be claimed in tbe present temper of the country that this i'el would be impos- ! sible. tf it is not made, at,,) two Dem ocratic and two Republican tickets pn ' into the tit-ril. w th perhaps n lop. ; uiist, and surely a socialist and two!1 MIDSUMMER NECESSARIES.

Prohibitionist, who caft predict the result from such a mixup? On tho other hand if the silver men succeed in unit ing, what hope is thereof beating them unless the other side unites? Suppose Gov. Russell to bj tho nominee of tbe Eastern Democrats on a platform equally as strong as that at tit. Louis, making the choice entirely between tbe two men, with Russell's record an unquestionable one and McKinley's with all its past leanings towards sil ver, under which standard would the union be formed? it sounds crazy uow to talk of McKinley, with the tremen dous power of the high protective sen timent back of him, being shoved aside; but it is not an impossible de velopment if the money question be comes the all absorbing one. In fact hardly anything is impossible this year. Only one thing can be figured as certain. It is a year of political ev olution. Never has an election oc furred in tho midst of hard times that has failed to being one. It was so in ISiO. again in 1848, 18."iH, 1874, 1881 and Isrii.The question is in which direction can the revolution be steered, towards high tariff or free silver which the great mass of dissatisfied voters be made to believe is the cause of their troubles, a trilling reduction of the tariff or a wrong money system that has afflicted of th e whole word. If it is the latter view that prevails the task of wise statesmanship nd one that will be profoundly dilhcult.is to seek the remedy in a world-wide application of what is a world wide evil. Ml.
