pared with that which the Democra
cy has in searching for issues for the
campaign of 1900. One of the very
few papers of any standing or in
fluence in its locality which sup
ported the bogus money ticket of
1890 was the Indianapolis Sentinel.
It-is said that the editor of the
Sentinel has now told his party that
if it gives any sort of prominence to
the silver issue in 1900 it will be
defeated. The programme which he
is reported to have proposed for his
party next year is "anti trust, anti
uiilitansu), anti-expansion and tariff
In tlropping t'.lver the Indiana dictatorship of the most despicab'e
when Aguinaldo was lauded to the
skies as one of the great patriots of
the century.
It is not surpiising that the first
paragraph of the conference add i ess
to the people should denounce "the
war of conquest." The strange
thing is that in the midst of the
tumult they could agree to strike
out the woid 'extermination," which
was in the original draft. However,
this playing with ftarful terms will
not be very rich in results. Critics
and theorists do not carry much
weight unless tbey have tho confi
dence of the people. These Buffalo
visionaries who tan agree upon no
single project, UDless, peihaps, it be
to haul down the American flag at
Manila, represent nobody and when
the great heart ot the country is not
behind them, they will accomplish
little or nothing.
The address which was read by
Professor Ilerron of Iowa, and prob
ably prepared by him, has too much
of rant in it to be taken very serious
ly by common 6cnse people. For
several days he has been groaning
from the plalfoim about "a military
Democratic editor finds himself in a
pretty numerous company. Gen. A.
J. Warner, who can claim to be the
father ot the silver foil', now that
Richard I Rland is dead, advised
his party a few days ago to abandon
that issue, or to keep it far in the
background. Wharton Barker, who
was one of the loudest of the shout
ers for it in 189C, has cut loose from
eilvcrism, but has gone over to green
back ism. Ex-Senator Peffer has
dropped silver, too, but he has come
over to the Republican party. Some
of the newspapers of the Teller ele
ment of the Republican party, which
went into the Bryanite coalition
atter Teller's secession from the Re
publicans in 189G, are advising their
friends to say nothing about silver
in the coming canvass. On the
other hand, the Bourbons, under
the lead of Jones, Altgeld, Bryan,
Stone and George Fred Williams,
urge their side to stick to silver.
The trouble with the Democracy
is that it is certain to be beaten, no
matter what programme it adopts.
The set of "principles" urged by the
Indianapolis editor are, of course,
absuid. When the Democrats had
eutire control of the government
during half of Cleveland's second
term they made no attempt to frame I
any anti-trust legislation. In the!
campaign at the end of Cleveland's
term the Democracy leagued itself
with the most vicious trust which
ever appeared in this country, the j
silver trust. The Democrats will
hare an interesting lime shouting
against militarism and expansion, in
view of the fact that a large and
cunstaiitly grow ing element of their
pniiy favwrs both militarism and ex
pansion. If the Democracy declares
for tariff reform, it will be confronted
with its record when it framed the
"perfidy and dishonor" tai iff of 189 1,
wbich looked carefully after the
interests of several of the trusts, the
sugar fchedule of wbich was drawn
up tiy Havcmeycr, of the sugar
trust. On the other hand, if the
Democracy abandons silver, it will
be cut by all the Populists, and
will not carry a single Western state,
or any state outside of a few of those
l i the South. In any case, its de
feat is certain to be overwhelming
enough to make alt the other party
beatins?s since J 872 look small. j
kind," and throughout the address
dwells upon the awful dangers that
are to result from this spirit of
militarism. According to the pro
fessor's ideas a republic with a
population of 75,000,000, and a reg
ular army of G5,000 is a military
autocracy like that of the czar of all
the Russians. Tucrc may be some
who will be led away by such rub
bish as this, but they can not be
many and their influence will not
be all-powerful. Some good ideas
may be contained in the mass of
reform subjects referred to, but
there is so much exaggeration,
venom, extravagant denunciation
and professional claptrap in it all
that very few will regard it as of
any practical value. As one of the
fearless delegates of the slim minor
ity said at one of the sessions, one
drop of good red patriotism can
nchieve more in a day than an army
ot croaking pessimists can accom
plish in a lifetime.

About 113,500,000 of gold has gone
out of the country since the move
ment began. Perhaps $30,000,000
or $10,000,000 in all will go cut
before the flow stops. Usually there
is an outgo for a few months every
year. In 1898 we escaped any such
movement, but that was an excep
tional case. A gold outflow is
looked for each year as a matter of
course. The fact that it is not at
tracting any particular attention now
is shown by the circumstance that
the gold reserve in the treasury is
growing constantly. It is at present
about $10,000,000 above tlie mark
at which it stood just previous to
the time when the gold exportation
started a month ago. This, of course,
is because the banks are furnishing
all the gold which is going out now.
The production of gold by the mines
of the Ui.iled States in 1893 was
$04,000,000, or much more than the
exportation is likely to he this year.
The production of 1899 stands a
chance to bo $70,000,000 or over.

Some Democratic papers are get
ting a little aid and comfort from an
assertion by Clmuncey M. Depew, In
an interview in London, thai lue
"questions not dreamed of at the last
struggle (1890) are forging to the
front,': and that "no man can tell
the issue with any success until the
electoral vote is counted." This
utterance is considered by some
Democrats to mean that one leading
Republican concedes the result of
the election of 1900 is in 6ome sort
of doubt.
Not the fflintrst doubt is felt by
any Kepuimcan about the re;ult of
the election next year. Every Re
publican looks for a bigger victory
for his parly than was uained in
1890. In ibis opinion a vast ma
jority of the intelligent Democrats of
the country agree with the Repub
licans. No Democrat nnywhere is
m kirg any prophecies of victory
for his side. Nearly every Demo
cratic newspaper in the country was
predicting a triumph for his party
on the eve of the canvass of 189G.
The feeling among Democrats now
differs widely fiotn what it did then.
Everybody can see at present that
the chances for a Republican victory
of big dimensions in 1899 are better
than they were in 1895. There is
a greater degree of despondency in
Democratic circles at the present
time than there has been on the eve
of any other presidential canvass
in on in in reigned, the social confer- j since that of 1808. at Buffalo on Monday agreed The fact that Democrats pretend

Germany has trouble over the

Some property owners have been very
negligent in the matter of keeping their
trees trimmed. Un several ot the prin
cipal streets of the city limbs have been
permitted to grow so they overhang the
sidewalk and in pasa'ng under one has
to stoop. When it rains, or even dar
ing sunshiny weather persons carrying
umbrellas or parasols have cnmeroui
times ruined them on account of over
hanging limbs.
This should not be permitted for if
the owners of property do not see fit to
trim their trees the city should attend
to it, for there is an ordinance prohibit
ing the same which we give below.
Another thing which is quite annoying
is the manner in which things are piled
on the sidewalks in some portions of the
city. There is also an ordinance against
this but from all appearances it is a
dead letter.
The following is copied from ordinance
