Pierre Highest of all in Leavening WHAT THE PEOPLE OUGHT TO KNOW l'owcr.- •The Record** of th« Two Old Partiru nt* Tools of tlie Gold Monopoly Known. The people need not be told Ilia! it was the Republican party -which origi nally demonetized silver, which created the national bank monopoly nnd which baa by all its administrations and by :i majority in each houso of congress for the last 23 years authorized the crime of 1878 and upheld banking monopolies that every Republican administration has been in favor of the English gold standard and of the commercial ri premacy of creditor England, and that a majority of tho Republicans in cacli I house of congress for the last 23 years I has been in favor of maintaining the I gold standard at whatever cost. In .short, the Republican party, as an orgauiza tion, has been in favor of the commer cial supremacy of creditor England over the people of tho United States. The people need not bo told that since the first election of Grover Cleveland of Buffulo in 1884 the Democratic party baa vied with tho Republican party in fidelity to tho mother country that tho Cleveland Democracy, by reason of its bold and aggressivo policy in favor of our enemies on the other 6ido of the At lantic, has probably reaped larger re wards than the Republican party during the last 15 years. Tho peoplo need not be told that Grover Cleveland endures with patience tho poverty of the masses, while ho enjoys the luxuries of an enor mous salary and the unlimited oppor tunities which friendship with tho mother country affords to those in pow er who will serve her. The people ueed not be told that tho two old parties for tho last 20 years have dealt dishonestly with the masses that the national conventions of both the old parties have been managed by politicians selected by tho banks and banking influences to shape the policy of each party so as to conform to tho de mands of gold monopoly. The people know it is absurd to contend that either party as an organization has been, is or will be in favor of any relief from tho ills of contraction, falling prices and bard times.—Silver Knight. WILL NOT SUPPORT A GOLD MAN. Senator Teller Say* He Will Not Follow Hi A Party In Its Folly. Washington dispatch to a Denver newspaper gives an interview with Sen utor Teller, in which ho spoke plainly about presidential candidates and the campaign. He said: "Everybody knows my sentiments re specting Mr. Sherman as a public man. tjiflfpr from him entirely on questions of financial policy, and could not con sider him a prudent or a safe man for president, and I regard Mr. McICinley in very much the same light. Senator Alli son I personally regard very highly, and think that, if it should come to a chance among the men mentioned, ho would be more acceptable to tho peoplo of the west than most of them. Vet I hope tho convention will not lie conlined to these men. Colorado people want a candidate who is unequivocally and openly for silver, and no candidate of other views will be acceptable to them. The Colorado electoral vote will be given to no man who is not square on the sil ver question. Tho state will throw its vote away before it will cast it for a gold monometalist. "It looks as if the eastern states would dictate tho nomination in the next Re publican convention. If they do, they will nominate a gold man. In that event I shall not follow the party in its folly. I would resign my scat in the nenate before I would give my allegiance to an avowed gold standard candidato and would retire finally from politics. Shrinkage of Currency and Ilaril Times, The circulation statement issued by the treasury shows tho amount of uil kinds of money in circulation in September aggregated #1,685,50!),500, decrease from August of 17, 160,519, decreuso of 469,445,478 sincc Oct. 1, 1804.

If the peoplo cf tho United States don't believe that tho constant shrink age of the volurno of circulation to get down to the level of the gold standard will produce hard times, from tho ex perience of recent years, a little more time will satisfy them that a people de prived of rnoue'y for business purposes op £})Q road to barbarism.

MR. WOOD'S LIVE MUFFLER. It lit Voting Wildcat Which Ho Tamed. Thwo ladies of Padueah who am fond of wearing fur boas around their 1 hivai. might learn a lesson from F. H. Wood, a river man who is now in the city. Mr. Wood has a handsome neck muliler of tawny .skin, but ho does not keep if in a bandbox at night. Ho locks it in a strong cage, for his boa is a half grown wildcat, with full grown claws and teeth. Wood has attracted considerable at tention during tho last few days by Gtrolling about the city with a young bay lynx or wildcat perched on his shoulder. Old naturalists claim that it is impossible to domesticate a specimen cf the Felis catus, which is the Latin for Mr. Wood's strange pot. Tic has re futed that theory, however, by partial ly taming the savage little beast. Many scars and scratches on his hands and faco bear evidenco to the fact that it, was no easy job to get on speaking terms with Mr. Wildcat, Jr., and it will allow no one but its owner to come near it. If a stranger approaches, the kitten will jump straight at his throat. Wood is very fond of the animal. Ho caught it when it was only six days old, after its mother had slain four large dogs, and raised it by hand. Ever since ouo night down at Cairo somo weeks ago he has been doubly attached to it. On that occasion he thinks the Jyux saved his life. In a conversation with a reporter Wood said ho was walking along the fiver hank on the outskirts of Cairo with his four footed friend on his shoul der. Tho evening was dark, and ho. could not see through the gloom, but the eyes of his feline could. Suddenly the little creature growled and leaped straight into tho face of a negro who Jiad slipped up behind tho pair. With'a howl of I'ain the would be robber drop ped a huge club pud set sail for another neighborhood. "Kitty" got an extra al lowance of meat that night for supper. Tho animal is now about tho size of a large tomcat, but is very different in appearance from the common tabby. It has huge feet, long, sharp claws, a head liko a tiger's, tho tufted ears which distinguish tho lynx family, aud a short tail, which moves incessantly.— Padueah Newt. MOTHER OF THE TRIBE.

It is said to ho ouly the second time in the history of Indians in which a white woman lias been chosen, the other occasion beiug the selection of Mrs. Harriet M. Converse of New York as mother of the Six Nations in the In dian Territory. All the Bannock chiefs signed their names to the document an nouncing Mrs. Fisher's election. The woman thus chosen is the wife of a former Iudiau agent, aud there is^\ very interesting story "connected with the matter. The new agent, Mr. Tctcr, has been very jealous of tho influence of the Fishers, and at one timo Mrs. Fishi er was arrested by the United States authorities for alleged inciting of In dians agaiust tho authorities.
