The love which the great silver mine owners' syndicate bears for the poor working man does not prevent It from filling the places of the striking Load- vlllo miners vlth new importations of non-union labor. Bryan advises the farmers to protect themselves against the men who produce nothing hut laws. How about protecting themselves against the men who , like Bryan , are sent to congress to help pro duce wise laws , but who produce vicious legislation ? Does abstaining from editorial refer ence to a forgery offer-any excuse for giving It publicity In the news columns * The editor of the Bryan Kake Mill , who was tripped up on the .T. Francis For- sy.tlie forgery , is wondering what aii- swor this public Is giving this question. "Free trade nnd free silver are the false friends of labor. They lure with promise of cheap commodities and cheap money. The partial trial of free trade haa proved that the cheap commodities promised are dear to labor and at the cost of labor ; and cheap money will he equally dear to them anil a sacrlllcc of their highest and best interests. " Wil liam McKinley. The Fake Mill suggests that the .7. Francis Fonythu forgery , which it an- mltfl circulating knowing that It bore the earmarks of forgery , may have been a practical Joke. That is possible , but not probable. But the reproduction of the forgery In the World-Herald was no practical joke. That paper inserted it in Its columns , not caring whether it was a forgery or not. The World-Herald is very much exer cised over the rowdy-like conduct of the Vale students who broke up Mr. Bryan's New Haven meeting , but It tried to excuse and apologize for the Bryan rowdies who tried to break up the Cock- ran meeting In tills city. Ail Kiicn rutllnnly interference with the right of free speech IB certainly to he deprecated and denounced. But why should the Bryan organ make Hsh of the New Haven boisterousness and flesh of the prearranged Omaha demonstration ? Never before in the history of Ne braska politics lias an Impending elec tion caused such universal demoraliza tion of business. Kvory man is more or less affected , and no matter what bo hla walk of life he has altered his plans awaiting the result of the presi dential election. Trade Is paralyzed. Nobody wants to do business in a state of uncertainty. The future cannot be discounted. Under wch conditions It Is not at all remarkable that the managers of the exposition liavo postponed the election of directors until December , Mr. Frank Itansom will address the South Side Grenadiers next Tuesday , The Grenadiers are presumed to be men who measure over six feet In their stockingH , But as each man casts only one -vote , whether ho bo short or long , la not the question of the tallest man knocking the persimmons. The only thing of Interest to the average voter In Douglas county Is whether Itansom still flu I ms to be a republican on every issue except free silver. If he docs , will hu support republican state and county candidates or does free silver require him to swallow the whole popo- crude menagerie ? MA X Jl'fi t.r/.S MAXI FB.STO.

Ih document is not merely dlwppolnliii ! by its lai-k of logical reasoning , but b ; Its glaring perversions of historic fact and Its misleading oiitl deceptive conclu slons. Taking his cue from Bryan , .ludgi .Maxwell Insists that the fall in price : of farm products tinpiitalleled bus Iness depression are due lo the searelt : of money brought about by the crime o 18 : i.

Judge Maxwell certainly cannot liavi forgotten that corn was used as fuel It Nebraska and Iowa in 1S71 , two years before the Imaginary conspiracy ngalns silver , and lie certainly knows that low prices always follow siiperabuadan crops. In tilt ? 'Ms ) fanners linulei dressed hogs from Fort Dodge , la. , t ( Diibuqno , 108 miles , nnd sold them foi ? l.r > 0 per hundred weight. Judge Maxwell arraigns the repub llcnn party for allowing the English U force the gold standard upon us , wliei he knows that the United Slates 1mi practically had the gold standard sne ! < 18IM , when the ratio of 30 to 1. ostab lisheil under Washington's administra tlon , was changed by Andrew Jack son's administration to lf ( to 1. Judgt Maxwell arraigns the republican partj further for Inserting In Its platforn Hie declaration that the present stand ard of value should bo maintained null an International agreement Is intuit and denounces this declaration as tin most cowardly statement ever made bj any party speaking for a nation of 70 , 000,001) of people. Judge Maxwell lias evidently forgot ten that the most sagacious statesmei of our time have scouted the idea tha tlio rnited States alone could malntali sliver on a parity with gold at the rath of HI to 1 with unlimited free coinage James G. Blalne , who was an avowei blinetallist , and no toady to Kngland declared in the senate during the dis cussion of the Bland bill in February 1878 : The difficult problem Is what we shall < 1 ( when we aim to re-establish silver wlthoui the co-operation ot European powers am really as an advance movement to coerc ( thoao powers Into the same policy. If wi coin a silver dollar of full legal tcndei obviously below the current value of th < gold dollar we are simply opening our doon and Inviting Europe to take our sold. Will our gold flowing out from us we shall b ( forced to the single silver standard and oui relations with the leading commercial na tlons of the world will not only be embar rassed , but crippled. If I were to vcntun a dictum on the silver question , I shouli declare that until Kurope remonetlzes sllvei wo cannot afford to coin a dollar as low ai 412 % grains. Ami this was said by .Tames G. Blalni when the silver dollar was worth W. cents * in gold. On the 17th of May , 1S70 , during i discussion of a bill to revise the statute. relating to the coinage and coin am bullion certificates , James A. Garlicid among other thing * , .said : No man can doubt that within recen years , and notably within recent months , thi leading thinkers of the civilized world hav < become alarmed at the attitude of the tw < precious metals in relation to each other and yet , outside of this capital , I do no this day know of a single great recognize ! advocate of bimetallic money who regard ! It prudent or safe for any nation to Increase the coinage of silver at the present tlmi largely beyond the limit fixed by exlstlnf law. The most strenuous advocates of bl > metalllsm say It would be ruinous to bl metalllsm for France or the Latin Union tc coin any more silver at present. Yet , we , who , during the past two years , have coined far more silver dollars than we ever before coined since the foundation of the govern ment , ten times aa many as we coined dur ing half a century of our national life , are today Ignoring and defying the enlightened universal opinion of hlmetallists , and say ing that the United StaU-s , single-handed and alone , can enter the Held nnd settle tills mighty lasue.Vo justifying the old proverb , that fools rush InIicic angels fear to tread , * * It I read the signs In the political horizon , the ) time Is just at hand when men who love their country , Its honor and Us plighted faith aliovo political party , will stand guard against this new heresy , known aa American finance. Jt IE an Issue of such transcendent Importance that It may render ell others obsolete. It Is a struggle of honor against dishonor , of law against an archy , a struggle In which are Involved the pcaco and safety of both employer and cm- ployed , government and people. According to Judge Maxwell the act of 187.5 demonetized silver llrst by ceas ing to coin standard silver dollars and second by making silver a legal tender for $5 and no more. Both these asser tions are misleading , Thomas Jefferson Issued an order In 180C to stop the coin age of standard sliver dollars nnd none were coined for thirty years , and yet no advocate of unlimited free coinage lias denounced Jefferson , In the limita tion of legal tender the act of 187H did not differ from the act of 185. % That act limited the legal tender of nil silver coins below the dollar to live dollars. The assertion that by LUo act of 187i ; thu government discredited its own coin and left It a dead weight in tlie hands of the holders , to be sold ns bullion , is also baseless. lOvery stand ard silver dollar coined beforw 187:5 : re mained H full legal tender , but even if It had been left a dead weight in the hands of the holders It would have sold as bullion for more than Its face value. The remainder of Judge. Maxwell'H manifesto Is of the same tenor , It Is a specious appeal to credulity and preju dice , rather than a diguilled declaration of principles , based on sound reason , backed by experience. "Sliver mining In gambling , " says onu i > f the otlk'lal campaign documents sent uut by the popoenitlc national commit tee. Having suppressed prlso fighting mil lottery swindles , we are now iislred to put a premium iq n nilver gambling : > y offering to make uvury ounce of silver mlnrd receivable Ill-payment of debts a twice Its market worth. In other words the government'Is risked to become ni active partner In a gigantic gnmbllnj and swindling concern. Tlttt And now conies the World-Hcrah with another of the many Bryanltt fakes that have been fabricated to or der In tile present campaign of forgerj and Imposture. The latest Is paradei In double column under n stud-horsi type heading , "New York's Big Grocer. ' The fake , garnished with the usual sll vcr sauce , is served tip with the fol lowing Introduction : II. K. Thurber of New York , senior part ner of the firm of II , K. Thurber ft lro ) , the largest wholesale grocery house li America , has for years been ono of th < chief props ot the republican organlzatloi In the Empire state. But Mr. Thurber can not stand Mark Hanna and his syndlcati uolltlcs and I'.as come out boldly for Dryai nnd free colnnzo. There are only a halt do7.cn lies em bodied In this little paragraph. In the llrst place there is no sitc.li grocery in existence as II. 1C. Thurber & Bro. , ami there has been no such ilrm for ovoi ten years. The original grocery linn was 11. 1C. & F. B. Thurber. That linn was dissolved about ten years ago and tile business turned over to a Ilrm know.ii as Thurber , Whyliind & Co. , later incotporaled Into the Thurber-Whyland company. Thu Thurber of that ilrm was Francis B. Thurber and not II. K. * Thurber. Three ycarsago the Thnrber- \vnylaiui company liquidated and neiiuci of this Thurburs are now engaged in tlie grocery btislnos. After chopping out of tlie great Ilrm back In the 'SO's H. 1C. Thurber became .a speculator in western railroads anil sliver mines. Ills railroad venture was n failure , but his silver Interests are still intact. In tills respect Tlmrber a conversion to tlie allver cause stands on a par with that of Sir Moreton Frcweii , who is constantly quoted a disinterested Kngllsh champion of free silver , when In fact lie ad mitted personally to the editor of The Bee two years ago that he owned a very valuable interest in Montana silver mines. If Mr. H. 1C. Thurber is for Bryan it is not because he thinks M ? election would help tlie grocery busi- no'hs or the workingman , for whom lie is shedding crocodile tears , but be cause ho hopes to enrich himself at the expense of others by a rise In silver mining stocks , which he would like to unload at two prices. Incidentally It is worth noting that Francis B. Thurbcr , who was the head and front of the extinct grocery Ilrm , i * an enthusiastic supporter of McKinley and .sound money. ' ' ' . AA'8 U'OKA' According to reports from Pennsyl vania , Senator Tillnian has done good work there for the republican cause. Ills revolutionary utterances , particu larly in tlie mining districts , Intended to Inllame the workers against thu employers , did not produce the deslrei effect Doubtless a few were inlluencct by Ills incendiary appeals , but it is salt that the more intelligent were not af footed and that he Injured rather thai helped the free silver cause. In somt of Ills speeches Tillmau declared tha "the south will not submit much longei to oppression , " saying further : "I tel you blood will llo\v and loolc out for it. ' He advised the miners if their bossest asked them to vote for McKinley to "tell those bosses to go- ' straight to lie ! and see that they go , too. " All this is so characteristic of thy South Carolina senator that there can bo no doubt lie i * correctly reported. There is tills difference between Till nian and oilier advocates of free silver , lie is frank , straightforward and out spoken , while they seek the same result by Indirection. They employ Insinua tion and Innuendo by way of inflaming passion and prejudice , while Tillman's appeals are plain and direct and not to lie misunderstood by the least intelli gent to whom they are addressed. He is , therefore , reallj' less dangerous than the lender of his party , who while in sidiously fostering class hostility and subtly arraying ono element of the people ple against another , has not the candor and courage to bluntly and plainly say what he means. Tillnian Is for revolu tion if ills cause fall and he says so. Some of ills party associates are not averse to revolution , but are not brave enough to declare themselves. AS TO A tUliVKIt TltUST. Wliile Mr. Bryan Is denouncing trusts and ( syndicates , It might bo well for him to glvo some attention to the. charge that there is a iillver trust or combina tion which is behind tlie free silver agi tation. Senator Hill of New York lias declared that there Is such a combina tion and that the whole agitation for free silver Is duo to It. Mr. David A. Wells , who Is competent authority , lias specllically asserted In a published let ter that the movement for free silver "Is the result of a nwcally conspiracy of the silver-mining magnates of the west and certain politicians whose as pirations are centered in the attainment of olllce and spoils , " A New York dem ocratic newspaper lias given what pur ports to he an exposure of the opera tions and thu purposes of the ellver trust , claiming that with that gigantic wyndl- 4'tito lies tlie chief responsibility for the free silver agitation , Mr. Bryan says that the demand for free 'silver is not made because silver is produce in this country , but no one will seriously accept thlH sin lenient In view of other declara tions which do not lit with It , There Is nothing Incredible In the al legation that a Mllver trust exists , or what amounts to the same thing , that there Is a well-dellned' understanding unong tlio millionaire silver mine own ers In furtherance of the scheme to double the value of their product and heir properties. Nobody will pretend that Senator Stewart , for Instance , IH ncapable of unltlngt with other minu owners to accomplish that purpo.se.

Tin : ATTACK 0V c7/.KH rjlBJV. A good deal of feeling has bcoi aroused in church circles In the east bj the attack which Mr. Bryan made on clergymen at Wilmington , Del. , and tin preachers are manifesting a dtaposltloi to resent what they regard as unwar ranted and unjustifiable treatment of them by the popocratic candidate. Tin. pastor of the Harrison Street Methodist Kpiscopal church at Wilmington writes to the Philadelphia Press that lie hoard Mr. Bryan's speech In the Delaware cltj and was much aggrieved to hear tin , candidate for such a high position de olaro that "tho ministers of tlio gospel are not in sympathy with the poor of their congregations , but heedless of theli many wants ; that they are leagued will the monopolists in keeping the poor mat- down ; that they engendered as much bit terness and strife among the masses as have tlie political speakers ; that living in ease and luxury themselves they an heedless of the real wants of their fel low men. " This the Wilmington clergy man characterized as uncalled for , mi charitable and malicious , in which judg ment undoubtedly most fair-minded people ple will agree. How fitr.'lf to any extent , ministers ot the gospijl mliy properly go in discuss ing politics from the pulpit is a debat able question' It Is one of those mat ters whleji a jnluistcr and his congrega tion miisit determine for themselves. A considerable number of clergymen liavi since the opening of the present cam paign adjlrowd their congregations 01 the currency question and mo far as wi have observed all 'ofthem have spoken in the cfhusflgOf honest money. Thej have doifi } tin'sKfrom the standpoint ol moralitytfftiiil' " Integrity 3anil not' from ihivtlsanship. Tlrt > y have dwelt upon tin commandment , "Thou shalt not steal , ' and simic of them have vigorously con demned what they believe to be a policy of repudiation and dishonor. Having done this they doubtless rendered them- s.ulves proper objects of- criticism by those they opposed , but this gave no warrant for abusing thorn and making clmrge.s against , them which everybody knows to bo without jusllllcation. While not questioning the right of Mr. Bryan to defend his cause against the assault of the proacheis , doubtless his best friends will concede that his manner ol doing so was not discreet nnd judicious. He is a churchman himself and should bo at least respectful to the "cloth. " There Is likely to be more heard of this as the campaign progresses. The smaller coal dealers announce that they will contest the validity of tlie ordinance which requires every coal dealer to pay an annual fee of $10. They contend that the ordinance was procured at the holiest of ( lie big dealers In an effort to freeze out the little ones , and upon this alleged showing they pro pose to go Jnto court. Whoever may have inspired the ordinance , no ono doubts Its validity. If it is just it ought to Klnnd. If It is bad the shortest route to repeal Is Its rigid en forcement. _ Try It On.

Vote for Jacli MacColl for governor. Plattsmouth News : Jack MncColl has been making votes by the hundreds this week In northwest Nebraska and Is moro than sus taining the predictions made regarding his abilities as a vote-getter. Bayaivl Transcript : It Is a fact that Jack MacColl Is growing In strength ns the can vass progresses. The western counties are solid for him and good reports are received from all over the state. Jack will be elected governor of Nebraska November 3 , and all the people will rejoice thereat. Sterling Eagle : Hon. Charles E. Casey ol Pawnee county , the candidate for state treas urer , comes very near to the voters of John son county , and wo should ECU to It that he Is given a rousing vote. He Is a very popular gentleman and In every way quali fied for this most Important omco. Nebraska City Press : If there Is ono man who Is especially qualified to (111 ( the position of governor of Nebraska that man Is Hon. J. H. MacColl , the republican nominee. Both populists and democrats admit that Mr. MacColl Is thoroughly competent to transact the duties of the olllce ho aspires to , and that his record for honesty of purpose is unimpeachable. Hebron Republican : That Governor Hoi- comb may be "a pretty good man" should cut no figure. That Jack MacColl Is a bet ter man for the people goes without saying , and In the Interest of the best possible state government It Is to the Interest of the people ple of Nebraska to have a state officiary that Is one and united in all matters of public concern ant policy. Grand Island Independent : Slnde the nomi nation of Hon. Charles Casey by the repub licans as state treasurer , all the populists' buncombe talk about the proposed exposure of the state treasury has subsided. There Is no man whose personal and bushier career will bear as much Inspection as Charlie Casey's , and that he will bo elected goes without saying. WIsner Chronicle : Charles E. Casey , re publican candidate for state treasurer , has been a resident of Pawnee City since 187 ! ) . He Is now cashier of the Farmers' National bank of that city , and one of the leading business men of that part of the state. Hu Is personally popular and Is regarded as a safe man. Prudent and conservative In the management of his private affairs , and oj unquestioned Integrity , ho Is worthy of the confidence of the people In the Important ofllcc for which ho Is named , Mr. Casey haa never 'held ' an ofllceIn his Ilfo , but has always Interested himself In the welfare and success of the republican party In his portion of the state. nioomfleld Monitor : 'By voting for Jack MacColl for governor of Nebraska this fall you will veto for n man who has honesty , In tegrity and ability enough to look after the affairs of his ofllce In a manner that will bring order out of chaos In the several state Institutions which are practically under the governor'a control. That Governor Holcoml ) has been a failure In the line of making ap pointments Is conceded by nearly everyone throughout the state , regardless of politics. The Norfolk asylum Is an Instance which Is under the personal observation of nearly every one In this part of the state. The ap pointment of MacKay as superintendent was bad from the start , and never for a moment was a credit to the state or the governor.

" It la ono of the mysteries of the xllvor question that Mexico , with her growing manufactories and commerce , with the long standing market for her eagle dollars among the orientals , coined last year only 527,600,000 , when her mines yielded in the same period enough silver to muko $69- 018,000. Mexico has four mints , They arc located BO as to save the shippers of bullion heavy traugporatlou charges , The northern mines Df the republic , the central mines , the southern mines and the Pacific slope mines lave mints convenient to them , The four nlnts can coin over $40,000,000 a year. They lire run at about three-fifths of their ca pacity. Why Is It ? "Uecause the producers of the bullion don't bring us any more , " said Scnor Fernandez. 'What becomes of the rest ? " 'The producers export it In the form of bullion , " 'Do you coin all that Is brought here ? " All. " 'Does the silver exported escape any tax ? " "No. 'Tlio tax Is the same whether silver goes out an bullion or conies here In bo coined There U a. tax of 3 per cent on all of the silver product of the mines. This in bo general revenue stamp tax. There U 3 per cent moro called the coinage tax , t Is put on the silver that U turned Into dollars , and also on the bars of bullion shipped out in that form. "Then nil of the silver produced pays S > er cent , whether coined or exported in mlllou lortu ? " "Yes. " There Is the problem. With the minis wide open , and with silver worth $1.29 an 3Uiico In Mexican dollars , more than half Dt the product goes out of the country un- : olucd , to be sold In forelgu countries at ; 0 cents an ounce. \ i.v MM : KOIL sn.vrs i.v CO.MHIHS ; Kearney Hub : There- will he n real man 1 congress when Cady takes his seat ncx March. Oakland Republican : If you want n llv man for congressman , vote for lloss Ij. Ham inoiul , a big , stout , brainy hustler wh will work for his district. McCook Tribune : Andrews stock continue strong. The "Little Parson" is phenomenally nally popular over the Fifth district an can road his title clear now to another term In congress. He can't be beaded off. Grand Island Independent : The Sixth dls trlct will have In A. K. Cady a representa live In congress whose history as wrltte up In the Congressional Hccord will sho\ something more of Interest than the drouth stricken "I object" remarks of Kem. Tobias Gazette : Let the X-rays bo turnei upon the record made by E. J. llalner and 1 will only reveal a record without n blot o scar to mar it. Ills work as a conKressniai will bear the closest Inspection and Invest ! gallon , and wherever duty demanded ho hai the courage to defend the rights ot his con .stltuents In a manner that was commeuda blc. fitanton Picket : Every report that conic from the big Sixth district gives a lie ; Inspiration of confidence to republicans. Hun A. E. Cady Is a giant on the stump an wherever he goes voters are Impressed wit ! his oratory , appearance and the fact tlm It Is time the people of that district had Just such n representative in congress n he will make. Friend Telegraph : Hon. E. J. Halner 1 doing some hard , effective work In the cam palgn. Congressman Halner has the repu tatlon of being a hard worker down at Wash InsUon and will receive the support of many who oppose his political faith on thes grounds. Saline county gave him uearlj a thousand plurality two years ago. He voters should do as well this fall. Tllden Citizen : Koss L. Hammond's can- dldary for congressman from this district is growing In strength and proportions ever } day. His career as a business man Indicates that he is full of energy and ambition ; that ho will use his best endeavors to push to the front in whatever walk In life ho en ters ; that ho will bellttlngly represent the progressive element ot this district in the halls of congress. Voters are beginning to realise these facts and do not hesitate to express their preference for Mr. Hammond Atkinson Graphic : It should be borne In mind by the people that the election of A E. Cady to congress means much to western Nebraska. The next congress will be strongly republican , and. in order for this part of the state to have any Influence she must have a republican member to look after her Interests with the majority. The little handful ot populists who have been In con gress In years gone by only proved an inJury - Jury to the welfare of the people who elected them. Cast your vote for A. E. Cady. Geneva Signal : Speaking of Speaker need reminds us of the fact that while In the east a district will keep a man in congress year after year If ho proves to have unusual ability and is faithful to the trust imposed In him. In the west it too often hap pens that about the time a congressman learns his business and has equipped him self to ( tjjhe work of the house in a crcd- Itablo manner ho Is retired to private life for ono cause or another. Congressman Halncr Is serving his second term In con gress and when It came time for the repub licans ot this district to make a nomination for the next term they did not let petty ambitions or Jealousies stand In the way era a recognition and a reward for his success ful , even brilliant , career In congress for the last four years. Broken How Republican : Every day is clearly demonstrating that the republicans made no mistake when they nominated A. E. Cady for congress. He has no personal record to defend , and ho can glvo his whole time to a dispassionate discussion of the is sues in this campaign. Whenever ho makes a speech he wins new friends and supporters by his honesty and manifest ability , appealIng - Ing to the judgment ot the voters Instead of trying to exnlto their passion and preju dices. Even 'those politically opposed to him cannot but admire his manly character and sincerity of purpose , and the clean cam paign ho Is making , so free from abuse or ranting demagogy , it U such men we need In congress , and the voters of the Sixth district are realizing that fact pretty gen- orally.

The report that Colonel Henry Wattcrson tvas on his way to this country to partici pate In the campaign is premature , The Louisville Courleii-Journal states that ho Is In Switzerland. A Boston news agency reports , as the re sult of an Investigation , that fG.000,000 of American money has been traiiefcnfd to Toronto banks alone within sixty days , This U ono of the many evil results of the silver scare. Colonel Alexander 1C. McClure , the veteran - oran editor of the democratic Philadelphia rimes , In an interview , published on the day Bryan was In the Quaker City , staked his judgment on the prediction that the pity of Philadelphia would give 100,009 mu- lorlty against free silver. Vice President Urooks of the Pennsylvania railroad , in a speech at Terra Haute , Intl. , last Thursday , challenged the silver syndl- : oto to substantiate Its charso that the com- liany was coercing Its employes , promising that the company would bear the expense at prosecution If Its charge were sustained In court.

In an Interview iu Now York ho said : "I do not believe that there la a reasonable chance of Mr. Uryau'v carrying Kentucky.

Tcliamah Herald : The World-Herald hnd so little to say about the Mnlnc election tli.it the suspicion la abroad Hint Its cn- tlro force must hnvo been among these ar rested the night before for disturbing thp Cocltran speech. Kearney Hub : The Hub lias not yet no ticed u retraction ot the World-Herald's charge of forgery against n number of rc- liubllcnti papers that unvltHngly printed the "forged" financial plank of the republican platform iis first given to the public by that paper. Genoa Lender : The World-Herald says the header Is "the cheapest liar In the grand aggregation of goldbug prevaricators , " Yes , but we nro not thumb high to an elephant beside that inantllccnt , world'champlon , frco silver liar of the World-Herald. Wo have no hopes of rivaling him as a cam paign liar. f Sewnrd lleporler : Tlie report of the com missioner of pensions has recently been Mini with the secretary of the Interior , for the year ended Juno 30 , 1S9G. It shows , among other things , that 2,393 ! ) pensioner * died during the year. The Omaha World- Herald , which a few years ago complained because the old soldiers were not dying fast enough , may congratulate Itself and Its party that they arc now dying nt n rapid rate. Increasing age and the hardships they endured In defense ot their country are rapidly thinning the ranks of the old guard. HISMAIICIC'S 1IIC "IF. " New York IJccorder : Illsmarck Is said to have written a letter to Governor Culhersou of Texas saying that he Is strongly In favor of International bimetallism. So Is McKin ley. nut between nryantnctalllsm and hi- . metalllsm there Is all the difference between national folly and International wisdom. Chicago Ilecord : Prince Bismarck's pro nouncement as to bimetallism and his doubts as to whether ho did not. perhaps , make n mistake In 187,1 , when Germany adopted the single gold standard , will bo variously construed by panics In America. It may bo remarked , however , that Interest In an experiment when performed by an other Is quite different to performing the experiment oneself. Now York Times ( dem. ) : Hlsmarck takes pains to pass no judgment on the effect ot "Independent action" on the Interests of the United States. He distinctly reserves Judg ment , and leaves to "the people of the United States" to say whether It would be "compatible with their interests. " Ono effect It would clearly have would bo to tend to make the same German gold buy more wheat than at present. Ho would not object to that. Meanwhile wo note with pleasure that our free silver friends are getting over their nervousness about "foreign dictation , " and welcome comment from European states men. If they will make their study broad enough , they will nnd It enlightening. Globe-Democrat : The letter of Prince Bla- marck to Governor Culberson of Texas , which the Hryanttes are rolling as a sweet , morsel under their tongues , Is really not or the least advantage to them so far as the question now before the American people la concerned. Dlsinarck says ho has always had a piedllectlon for bimetallism and a mutual agreement between the principal commercial nations of the world for Its cs- * tabllshment. McKinley feels the same yay upon the subject , and the republican platform - form contains a declaration of like purport. But that Is not what the Bryanltes favor. o o To many persons , who have been paying tailors' prices for custom-made suits , to find upon visiting our store that our' suits - and overcoats are as handsomely made , as fashionable in cut , as ele gant in trimmings and as fine in materials.
