Immense Convention of Silver Men, Populists and Greenbackers. Chicago, Aug. 1. There will be a declaration of war today and the signal for hostilities will be given by the com bined convention of populists, ftee sil ver men and greenbackers. The foe to be outlawed will be "the money power" and tbis generalization la so broad that it is designed to include capitalists of Europe aa well as the money barons of Wall street. The scenes following the imposition of the stamp and other taxes so holly contested and indignantly denounced by the colonial fathers of 1770 would havo boon a fitting parallel to that fur nished in the hotel lobbies today by the popular arraignment of the attempt which it is asserted is now being made by .Great Brltiauand the monometallic monarchs of Europe to coerce the Amer ican continent into financial depend ency upon fiats of the world. The law of supply and demund and the results of over production found no place in their arguments, for every sug gestion of this kind was repulsed by a startling array of statistics and figures tending to show that the closing of the mints of India was the death blow to free coinage in Europe, and that the demand of Wall street for the repeal of the Sherman law is but a part of the great conspiracy against the silver re publics of the Western hemisphere. It is the opinion, too, of delegates now as sembling that the conspiracy should be firmly met and the enemy promptly routed; and some of them grow hot euough at times to Intimate that if leg islation Bbali prove inefficient the re course to arms might present a remedy. Populists, greenbackers and free sil ver men eeem to bo united as one on the program that the repeal of the Sherman purchasing act must be re sisted to the last, unless there should be coupled with it an act for the free coinage of sliver or for a greater volume of currency. The greenbackers and Ppullflt who believe the flatof the government is as potent to make a dollar outof a atrip of green paper as 'to make a dollar of seventy cents worth of sliver are, of course, not particular whether the legislation substituted for the Sherman act shall be free coinage or government greenbacks; but fur the sake of showing a solid front against the common enemy, the monometal lists, they will unite with Hie free coin age men in a concerted resistance to the Cleveland policy, unless a greater volume of currency fchall be Insured to meet the stringency of the financial situation. Aggressive committees are to be ap pointed to carry the fight to Washing ton and state committees to work up public sentiment in the various states Then a campaign committee is to be named and to tbis committee is likely to be entrusted what is really the most Important work of the free silver cru sade. Maes meetings nightly for all the weeks to come during the financial crisis are to be held by the unemployed and poverty stricken in every city of the land and resolutions will be pre sented and adopted calling upon podt gress to pass a free coinage bill. The proselyting of the leaders of labor or ganisations is to follow next. It is to be a great moral crusade, a weakening of the masses, until tho popular det maud becomes so strong that "the voice of the people will be stronger than the voice of God," as the Populists put It The men who are at sembled here are terribly in eat neat and their numbers and their ..marked personality nnd In. telligence of most of their leaders glye great significance to the gathering. It is thought that ex-Senator Regan of Texas will be permanont obairinauof the convention. Chinatown Burned. Denver, Aug. 1.

The nation al ooyention of the American Blinetal- llo League, met at 10 o'clock this morn- lug at the First Methodist church audi torium. It Was the largest assembly of a like character in the history of the present financial agitation. 'Mayor Carter H. Harrison welcomed tho dele gates to the city. HARBISON FOR SILVER. In bis address Mayor Harrison said: "It is said you are silver lunatics upon whom I Ioo"k. I am rather glad to wel come such lunatics. It is crazy men that march the world forward and make progress a possibility. If the ac tion of 1878 should be blotted from the annate of "Americana political action, I believe that sliver would be worth 129 cents an oun.o today." Hon. Thomas Ptterson, chairman of the Colorado delegation, responded to the Mayor. Chairman Warner, of the Bimetallic league then delivered his opening ad dress. WARNER'S SI'fKOH. Warner eutd "that to attribute the present widespread fear aud distress to (be sliver urchaslng law is absurd. The real object lesson of the situation Mery different from that which the gold conspirators intend. It enables us to see the beginning of shrinking in riches that niuut tako pluco in order to go to a purely gold banja. Tho trouble Is In the change In money standard. Tho establishment of a single gold standard Is equivalent to putting the value of two dollars into one." He characterized the silver act of 1873 as a crime ubd said he was willing to let both the Sherman laws go to gether and place the country back upon the constitution aud tho law as it stood before 1873.

THE ADMINISTRATION'S POLICY A Man Able to Earn His Support Has No Title to a Pension. PiTTSBaRO, July 1. Judue Slagel, of the county court, recently wrote Assist ant Secretary of the Interior Reynolds about the recent suspension of many pensions, etc. Ho has received a lengthy reply from Mr, Reynolds, ex plaining the polloy of the administra tion. Reynolds says substantially that the suspensions to whlob the judge re ferred were made- by an order of the secretary, holding, in substance, that a man who Is able to earn his support by manual labor has no title to a pension, undor section 2 of tho aot of June 27, 1890. The order of Com missioner Raum, fixing rates under this aot, Ignored the essential basis of pensionable status, inability to perform manual labor. Furthermore, evldonce, when It might have shown tho disabil ities were the result of violous habits, was not required, the commissioner's ruling thus superseding tho law. Again, Raum treated disabilities not of service orluln the samo as disabilities which wore. The present secretary having found erroneous orders of Raum unrevoked and claims adjudicated thereunder unquestioned, could not do otherwise than revoke these ordors, providing a now one In accordance with the law for future praotloe, and order a re-exam! nation of prior adjudi cations to correct the error. Raum's error was not exposed until January 7, this year, after 321,130 cases had been adjudicated In pursuance thereof. The administration would havo been a party to perpetuatlug a monstrous wrong to the nation if tbeso claims remained un examined. The Message. Washington, Aug. 1.

Checks for Wheat. x St. Paul, Aug. 1, The grain men havo long been considering how the wheat crop Is to bo moved in view cf tho fact that their borrowing power la exceedingly limited, owing to the financial stringency.
