The paramount issue at this time in the United States is indisputably the money question. It is between the gold pt&Ddard, the gold bonds and bank cur reocy on one side, and the bimetallic ataudard, no bonds and government cur rency on the other. On this issue we de clare ourselves to be in favor of a dis tinctively American system. We are unalterably opposed to the single gold standard and demand immediate return to the constitutional standard of gold and silver by restoration by this govern ment, irdependently of any foreign pow er, of the u nreetricted coinage of both gold and silver into standard money at the ratio of 16 to 1, and upon terms of exact equality as they existed prior to 1873, the silver coin to be full legal ten der equally with go!d for all debts and dues public sod private, and we favor such legislation as will prevent further demonetization of any kind of legal ten der money by private contract. We bold the power to control and regulate papier currency is inseparable from the ppver to coin money, and hence that al before buying. FINE SEMI PORCELAIN in plain and decorated pat terns.

Anything you want at THE DAILY LEADER MORSE & MUNRO.** advertisers treasury policy, conourred in by the re Tnc special feature currency intended to circulate as money ehould be is6ued and its volume con trolled by the general government only, and it should be legal tender. We are unalterably opposed to the issue by the United States of interest-bearing bonds in time of peace, and we denounce as a blunder worse than a crime the present of publican house, of plunging the country in debt by hundredsof millions io a vain attempt to maintain the gold standard by borrowing gold, and we demand the payment of all coin obligations of the United States as provided by existing laws in either gold or silver coin at the option of the government and not at the option of the creditors. 2. That over and above all other ques tions of policy, we are in favor of restor ing to the people of the United States the time-honored money of the constitu tion—gold and silver, not one but both —the money of Washington, Hamilton, Jeffersob, Monroe, Jackson and Lin coln, to the end that the American peo ple may receive honest^ pay for honest product, tbat the American debtor may pay his just obligations in an honest standard and not in a standard that has appreciated 100 per oent above all the great staples of the country, and to the end further that present silver standard countries may be deprived of the uejust advautage they now enjoy in the differ ence in exchange between gold and sil ver—an advantage which tariff legisla tion alone cannot overcome. We therefore confidently appeal to the people of the United States to leave in abeyance for the moment all other ques tions, however important and even mo mentous they may appear—to sunder if need be all former party ties and affiilia tions, and unite in one supreme effort to free themselves and their ohildren from the domination of the money power—a power more destructive than any which has ever been fastened upon civilized man of any race or in any age. And upon the eocsummation of onr denires and efforts we invoke the gracious favor of Divine Providence. Mr. Griffen, one of the leading econo mists of Great Britain says: "A creditor nation is able to draw more from ita trib utaries who have to pay iu the appreci ated money than it wbuld otherwise be able to draw. To pay the Bame debt they must send to their creditros 30, 50, lerhups 1"0 p«r ceut more of produce than they would otherwise have to Eend. There is i:o doubt that in this sense the weight of a gold debt of a debtor nation like India or the United States has enormounly increased of late years. ''All the evidence points to a continu ance of this appreciation. "Debtors pay more than they would otherwise pay and creditors receive more, and this appreciation is a serious matter to those who have debts to pay." McKinley should take down his label as champion of the protection of Ameri can indubtry and commerce, and put np the sign—"1 am agent of the British in terest, aud I support the appreciating single gold standard which robs Ameri can producers of |U00,000,000 a year,closes American mills and mortgagee American farms." Sioux Falls dispatch, 18: Congress man Tcwne of Duluth and ex-Governor Horaoe Boies of Waterloo, Iowa, will speak on silver day (Wednesday) at the tri state fair, to be held in this city next week.

Special trains and special rates have already been arranged for. Both gentlemen will speak in the afternoon and evening. Deadwood dispatch, 18: In tl»e trial of Thomas J. Wallace, James King and Edward Baxter before United States. Judge Carlund for the robbery of the llighmore posLoflioe, it was proved that the stolen AAdk Cor* warded to Gettysburg and been received and receipted for by a prominent at torney of Sioux Falls, Joseph Kirby. Kirby, who had been in attendance on United States court, decamped as soon ns Express Agent J. H. Howe, of Gettys burg, gave his testimony. His disap pearance from Deadwood has oaused a mild sensation. Win. J. Bryan: "We are engaged in a grent struggle, one of the greatqeWj^trug gles in which the people of this Country have ever engaged in a time of peaoe—it is a struggle between democracy on one side and plutocracy on the other, and there is no middle ground for any man to stand upon. They who are not for us are agaihst us. Whether we win now or not we have begun a warfare against the gold standard whioh shall oontinue until the gold standard is driven from our shores and back to England. We have been opposed to importation of criminals and paupers from abroad, and we shall oppose importation of a financial system which is criminul and whioh makes pau pers wherever it goe?. The most important partof ~the mess age of President Diaz of Mexico at the recent opening of the Mexican congress was that referring to financial affairs of republic The cash revenue*, be stated, amounted to 850,000,000, the largest an nual revenue yet reoorded.
