Following is the finance plank or tho McKinlcy platform adopted In Ohio Wednesday: A currency of gold, silver and paper, with which to measure our exclintifzo, that shall bo as sound as the govern ment and as untarlshcd as Its honor, and to that end wo favor bimetallsm and demand tho use of both gold and Hilvnriisu Btandard money, cither In accordance with a ratio to Iks llxcd by lntcr-natlonal agreement, If that can bo obtalned.or under such restrictions and such provisions, to bo determined by legislation, as will secure tho maintenance of tho parity of values of of the two metals, so tho purchasing debt-paying power of a dollar.wiiether liver, gold or paper, shall Iks at all times equal. It Is stronger In favor of bimetallsm than the national platform of 1802, and it is believed that it will go far to unlto all friends of silver for tho Ohio favorite. Tho prominence which Is given to bimetallsm shows that tho most con itorvatlvo Republicans of a grand old conservative state rcallzo tho necessity of rccogulzlng silver and of avoiding tho absolute gold mono-metalUni ad vocated by Cloveland-Carllslo and Wall street interests. Tho demand for tho "use of both gold nnd silver us standard money," as telegraph reports havo It.cannot bo construed to mean anything but what it says, nor to mean what it does not say; and it does not say "wo demand tho uso of gold and silver us gold standard money." It plainly means the double standard. It Is evident that It docs not mean Independent, freo and unlimited coin ago of silver 10 to 1, or it would say so. It says about all that words can say and not sny that. It says freo coinage by international agreement. Eton Mingle gold standard men claim to favor freo coinage of silver if England, Germany .and France, or any two of them, would ugrco to It. Single stand ard men would also favor freo colnugo of silver, If It ti worth In bullion what it is In coin. All this goes to show tho strong growing feeling with all classes In favor of genuine bimet allism. It Is quite likely that the Ohio platform will !o tho strongest declaration for silver that will lx mudo by any eastern state, it now looks as though tho Republican and Democratic parties would both hedge on tho silver question. Hut bimetal lism is bound to come. Like good roads, H will 1m brought about by constant education und discussion be fore tho people. We do not believe tho politicians can ovtiuo tho Ibstio between mono- nictulUm and bimetallism any longer. John Sherman has been trying It Jfor twenty years. From 1882 to 1892 we coined from three to four hundred mlllloiuVf ollver and tho surplus gold balance in favor of our country were four hundred millions of dollars. Colnugo of sliver brought gold to our country us never before, Under a MoKlnley turlft and coining gold and sliver or American mines we wore getting to bo the richest nation in tho world. Cleveland came In 1892 with a revenue tariff, coinage of sll PROTECTIVE AND REVENUE, M. Fifty-fourth Speech of Hon. Oalusha H. Grow, tcctlon and genuine bimetallism. Things are not nltogct'icr harmoni ous for Ulngcr Hermann In the Hrst congressional district. The Salem Statesman Is making a vigorous light against him, and the papers In other localities, where there aro favorite sons, delight in holding Hermann's short comings up to bcorn. These an tagonistic Journals aro predicting his easy defeat In the convention; but at that point their harmony ends, and each has a candidate whom It declares Is the best to till Hermann's place. Hermann may not Ihj a well-rounded statesman In all respects, but he has pioven himself a hard worker, and on local Issues well represents the state. Ills free silver vagaries are his prin cipal fault; but tho vote In the house of 'representatives showed that the danger from that source Is passing. While It Is our opinion that Her mann represents the people of tho Hrst district as well as any one that could go In Ills place, It Is none or our light. Tho people of tho second dis trict havo all they can do determin ing whether or not Ellis shall lw re elected. According to the TendletOn Tribune this matter is already settled and Ellis will bo relegated to private life. Dalles Chronicle. C. for Pennsylvania in Congress. What is tho history of the old tariff that has been superseded? It began with the passage, in February, 1801,of what Is known as tho Merrill tariff. That was framed avowedly upon tho ..iiin t.imt, while raising the revenue necessary for the support of the government, duties should bo so adjusted as to protect American labor 111 Its competition with tho poorly paid labor of tho world, and to secure as far as possible the supplying of the home market by home labor In all cases where climate, soil and business facilities would admit of Its being done to advantage. This principle controlledWn all the tariff legislation from that -time until March 4, 1803. Every year after 1865-that being the the close of' the war-the receipts havo exceeded the expenditures, and in addition to paying the current ex penses of the government, two-thirds of the national debt of $2,700,000,000 In 1807 has been paid, and no money wns borrowed save the $95,500,000 for the purpose of resumption of specie payments in 1897. Tills Is a llminelnl record unsurpassed in tho history of any nation. The following table shows the excess of receipts nnd ex penditures of the government from 1858 to 1895 inclusive, and the amount of customs revenue each year from 1805, the close of the war peried: ?3 S3 Customs revenue. Excess of revenue over expenditure Excess of expenditure over revenue. A California paper says: Tho su preme court appears to exist for tho purpose or knocking out laws which aro Intended to purify politics or to Intend morals. It has a noso for tin constitutionality; no matter how well Intontloncd a law may bo, the court Is sure to tlnd In It somo tlaw, which makes It void. Ono of the best meant statutes of tho last legisla tures was the act regulating primary elections; If It could havo been put In force, It would havo largely dimin ished tho control of nominations by party boscs; but the court Buyfl it Is special legislation, and therefore un constitutional. It seems odd, that, with all our clovcrness, wo cannot frame laws that will stand tho test of an appeal to tho supreme court. 1858. . . . 1859.... 1800.... 1801.... 1802.... 1803.... 1801.... 1805. . . . 1800.... 18G7.... 1808.... 1809. . . . 1870.... 1871.... 1872.... 1873.... 1874.... 1875 1870.... 1877.... 1878.... 1879. . . . 1880. . . . 1881.... 1882.... 1883.... 1881.... 1885.... 1880. . . . 1887.... 1888.... 1889.... 1890. .. 1891.... 1892.... 1893.... 1891.... 1895.... $179,010,051.28 170,417,810.88 101,401,509.50 180,018,428.03 101,538,374.44 200,270,408.05 210,370,280.77 188,030,522.70 103,103,833.09 157,107,722.35 148,071,081.01 130,950,493.07 130,170,080.20 137,250,017.70 180,522,004.00 108,150,070.02 220,410,730.25 214,700,490.93 105,007,489.70 181,471,939.31 102,905,023.4 1 217,280'803.13 210,091.173.03 223,832,741.09 229,008,581.57 210,522,205.23 177,452,004.15 203,355,010.73 131,318,530.02 152,158,017. 15 V" $ 37,223,203.07 133,091,335.11 28,297,798.40 48,078,409.41 101,001,910.88 01,140,750.01 90,588,004.80 43,302,959.31 2,314,882.30 13,370,053.20 29,022,241.83 30,310.577.09 20,799,551.90 (1,870,300.93 05,883,053.20 100,009,401.93 115,513,810.71 132,870,444.41 104,393,025.50 03,403,771.27 93950,588.50 103,471,007.59 111,341,273.03 87,701,080.50 85,010,271.07 20,838,541.90 9,014,423.00 2,341,075.29 8 27,529,904.43 15,584,511.10 7,005,090.50 25,030,714.50 422.774.303.48 (102,0 13,434.22 000,095,870.37 003,840,019.33 4-4; Commercial Slrcel, Corner Hid Cailital Print!,. ,v moved to tliflt IomiU.. n... hi i German Lessons I Given by a qualified teacher . . . -of Germany.
