The National Silver party in conven tion assembled hereby adopts the follow ing declaration of principles: 1. The paramount issue at this time in the United StateB is indisputably the, money question. It is between the gold Btandard, the gold bonds and bank cur rency on one side, and the bimetallio staudard, 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 Btandard 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 unrestricted coinage of both gold and silver into standard money at (he ratio of 16 to 1, and upon terms of exact equality as they existed prior to 1373, the silver coin to be full legal ten der equally with gold for all debts and dues public and private, and we favor •uch legislation aa will prevent further ^demonetization of any kind of legal ten der money by private contract. We bold the power to control and regulate Blankets, Warm Goods, 111 ina. paper currency is inseparable from the power to coin mouey, and hence that al currency intended to circulate as money should be issued 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 bluuder worse than a crime the present treasury policy, concurred in by the re publican house, of plunging the country in debt by hundredsof millions in a vain attempt to maintain the gold Btandard by borrowing gold, and we deuand 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 fav»r 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 Jefferson, Monroe, Jackson and Lin coin, to the end that the American peo pie may receive honest pay for honest product, that the American debtor may D!iv his iust. obligations in an honest, appreciated 100 per cent above all the great staples of the country, and to the end further that present silver standard oountries may be deprived of the unjust advantage they now enjoy in the differ ence in exchange between gold and sil ver—an advantage which tariff legisla tion aloue cannot overcome. We therefore confidently apical 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 affilia tions, and unite in one supreme effort to froe themselves and their children |rom the domination of the money power—a power more destructive than any which has ever been fastened jupon civilized man of any race or in any age. And upon the consummation of our desires anil efforts we invoke the grncious favor of Divine Providence. The amount of vacant public lands in South Dakota is: Purveyed, 11,029,963 aores unsurve. 2.359,390 acres. The e is room for a few more settlers of good quality y*»t. Huron dispatch, 2: A prarie fire yes terday afternoon and last night covered a stretch of country seven miles wide and ten long, between the Milwaukee and the Northwestern tracks, three miles west of Broadland and south to Wolsey, and east nearly to Valley Junc tion. ImmeDse quantities of hay and grain were burned. John Snyder and the Smith brothers each lost 400 tons of hay and much grain. It is estimated that 5,000 bushels of wheat and 10,000 tous of hay have been burned, some farmers losing all they had. At the meeting of gold democrats in Huron on the 1st inst., itjwas decided to put no electoral ticket in the field. They recommended the organization of sound money democratic clubs. Judge Cro foot was made president and Q. M. L. Erwin both of Aberdeen, secretary of the clubs. Gold bug papers are making a great clamor about Mrs. Lease getting f50 a night for her political addressee in this campaign, but they say never a word about the $1,000 Ben Butterworth got for a week's work to come out here and speak for gold against both his record and hisconvictions on the queetion. The tax levies for the respective counties of the state have all been re ported to tlie secretary of Btate at Pierre and show a wide divergence in the amounts of the levies. Brown county is the lowest with a total levy of only 8 mills, Moody county being next with only 9 mills. Lake oouuty is below the average with a Itrf ol 12 ftiUa, flMuqr o( th-i others running from 13 to 17 mills on the dollar. The Black Hills have an average higher than anvother portion of i the state, the lowest in that section be ing Butte with 20 mills »uid the highest |n the state, Lawrence with a levy of 28 D1'"8 —="3B Yankton Press, 2: The free silver re publican state committee of which TJ. &• G. Cherry, of Sion* Falh, is chairman, is now engaged in iiiaking a secowd poll of of the state for the the purp»e of ascer taining the number of free silver repub licans in South Dakota who will vote for Bryan. The poll is not completed, but sufficient is known to justify increasing the number of voters found on the tirst polls, which was 10,000. The state is safe for Bryan. The way .to secure an international ugreemeut on tl.o silver question without de'ay, is for the United States to lead ff, as Bismark says, and other nations will follow. And the way to secure action on the part of the United States is to elect Bryan. Every voter who desires to restore silver nationally and internationally will upon reflection, see Unit the election of Bryan is the sur est, safeat and speediest way to bring it about. Free silver men should not be, discour aged by the extravagant claims .of the gold republican press. Since they have failed in argument to establish the hon esty of the appreciating gold dollar they have not hesitated to resort to a mis representation of public sentiment and are trying to create a stampede for Mo Kinley by claiming everything in sight. The fact of the matter is they have failed to reach the masses in their advoeacy of the gold standard and they hope to cover up their weakness until election time by playing the "grand stand" a«t. The same tactics were pursued by "King" Biddle and the money power entrenched in the United States bank in their tight against Andrew Jackson sixty years ago and all that money, literature and ora tory could do, coul 1 not defeat "Old Hickory" and the people behin'd him. Even the great "triumvirate,* Clay, Webster and Calhoun lent their massive intellects and brilliant eloquenoe to de feat the old hero in his tight against cen tralized wealth but the common people stood with hiin and the moneyed oli garchy had to go. So it wil^ be again. Any man who looks into the magnitude of the robbery of the masses being car ried on through the appreciation of the single gold standard is simply appalled at the enormity of the crime, and if he is possessed of a spar't of manhood or drop of the milk of human kindness, he x-an never be persuaded to vote for Wm. labor crusher" and his ilk. Tbeae men ure playing for gigantic stakes and they are desperate. There is no misrepre sentation of fact or sentiment they will not resort to in order to deceive the peo ple, and there is no limit to ihe money they will spend by fair means or fonl to accomplish their purpose. They have grip upon the people through trusts, combinations of capital and the power of the gold dollar, to recoup themselves out of the pockets, yea, the very livelihood of the people for every dollar they expend. If the American people cannot defeat the gold oligarchy in this oontestj they have simply lost the power to govern themselves and have become the slates of the very men whom they have en enriched. We believe firmly that the people see the danger at thia time and will take the government into their own hands once more by the election of Wm. J. Bryan. Electric Bitters.

NKW ORLEANS, Oct. 5 The Timei Democrat's Key West spi-cial pays: Advices received here from Havana state that Antonio Mnceo, in a recent attack on the Tror ha, inflicted terrible lof«es on the Sj aniards, more than 1.000 being killed and wounded. The attack was made at uiKht and was carefully laiinrd The fighting was general all along the hne but wus fiercest near Art inisa, trher^ Antonio Maceo led a pickeu force of ui.-v.i gents against the ^l iiiiish column commanded by Gt'iierul Aralas The Si.aniuids were takeu compiOtely by &iupn.cc Thov were aroused from sleep to find n hail of in (•urgent lu.lets falling upon them. General Arala? and his s-taff half clad, ru^.ed frcm their hindquarters and tried to rally the Sj auish troops who were v l'anio Mrickeii bj the I»«urgcut« Attack. It wa« half an hour before even a sem lance of order could be restored to the lumn ui'.d during that t.me troops mained huddle together an easy mark for the Cubans. It was dv.iv:g this period that sc many Spanish were billed The insurgents had several dynamite guns, and those were used with terrible effect, the shells bursting among the Spaniards and -triking them down by the score The Cubans cap tured six pieccs of artillery and many thousands of cartridges and several hundred stands of arms. The attack raged from Bania Honda on the north to Makanda on the south, and at all points the strong line was de molished Maceo could easily have crossed with his entire force, but it -eenis his object was sin?ply to demolish the trocha. Madrid Rr|i«»rt 1* IMTerent.

PAUL, Oct 5.—Father a peculiar case has been begun in the United States district court. District Attorney Stringer, on behalf of the United States, sues the Northern Pacific railroad com pany to recover $.00 for the alleged neglect of cattle that were shipped over the road. The complaint alleges that in August the railroad company accepted for shipment from Hinckley, Mon., 30 road 4* hours and vn^f^ot"Y^(t 8F tered in that timp. It is alleged that the cattle arrived in St. Paul in a fever ish and exhausted condition. The statutes of the United States contain a clause that fixes a penalty for a common carrier neglecting to water and feed stock, and it is under this clause that the action is brought It is understood that this case will be fol lowed by actions against other roads which, it is alleged, have violated this iaw. GOVERNMENT CHAGRIN. Failure to Secure the Dynamiter* $poil« an English Senixtlnn. LONDON, Oct I —The gn'at dynamite •iepsation is dwindling almost to the vanishing point in public interest The government naturally is chagrined at the failure to Kcure the leading sus pect* and thus wcrk up a sensational conspiracy trial.
