A roKUKHiD.NDK.VT unkcs us to publish
a copy of tho text of each issue of United
States bonds in order to settle the ques
tion whether the bonds aro payable in
gold or not. Tho matter is not one that
is open to dispute, The United States
has issued no bonds payable in gold.
All our bonds are specifically payu'
hie in coin, except those issued in aid of
tho Pacific railroads, which are paya
ble in lawful money of the United States.
When President Cleveland sold $02,319,
400 of 4 er cent lionds to tho Morgan
syndicate he urged congress to grant
authority for promising payment in gold,
stating that the syndics te was willing on

would enable the government to save
over 1 10,000.000 on the issue. Congress
refused, und there is no legal authority

Mitchell said: ''lam afraid Undemo
cratic urty will make concessions to
the silver men in the platform adopted
at the next national convention. If it
does, despito all ast mistakes, it will
weep the country. If neither party
give silver the recognition it deserves, a
new party will spring up that will sweep
the country like wildfire. I think the
result of the lVnver conference will be
to make the republican party realize
fully the gravity of the situation, and
may lead to iU adopting a more lilieral
policy toward silver at the next republi
can national convention."

absolute necessity to the growth and
prosperity of a city.
Tun I'm accuses the Ooihikk of
"bullheaded stupidity." To reach this
sage conclusion it, with knavish duplicity,
perverts the sense and meaning of three
or four lines clipped almost from
the center of a paragraph in the
Coi'HiKH, thus imparting to them that
sophistical lucidity which is peculiar to

A standard is naturally presumed to
be stable, permanent, like the yard, the
pound avoirdupois or the fluid ounce.
We speak loosely of the "golu standard'
of value, as though the gold dollar
measured as much hops, cotton, ptrk
or other commodity as it did, say 15 or
20 years ago. We know it does not and
therefore it is a misnomer to call it a.

ards of Tulue, being, unlike the yardstick
or the pound weight, values in them

Chauncy Depew is how listed as a
railroad employe." Employes of his
class will vote for McKinley. The other
classes will vote for Bryan.
McKinley will go down in history as
the - man who - was afraid - to - leave1
It's a mighty mean man who won'
holler for the man who has given him
free railroad ride.
For the first time in history this cam
paign presents the paradox of a Hill
being in a hole.
Col. W. C. P. Breckenridgo is for the
gold standard because it would pain him
to pay off that Madaline Pollard judg
ment in 53 cent dollars.
Tho people drive miles and stand in
the rain to hear Bryan.. To get them
to hear McKinley they aie paid a day's
wages and given a free dinner.
Ho far Major McKinley has had no
calling delegation from Alaska, but it is
rumored that Mark Hanna is getting up
a free excursion from fitka.

organized in this city with a member

Mr. Jiie-'kcnridge may be veiyniuih
in earnest in his effort to preserve the
"honor of the nation," but at this dis
tance it looks as a ins nonor preserver
is on crooked.
Slavery wouldn't havo been abolished
if Mr. Lincoln had waited the approval
of the slaveholders, neither will silver
be restored as long as the consent of
England is made a condition.
A lrosi tnat will kill goldbugs is a
weather prediction that can be relied
upon for November.
The go'.d standard advocates present
some queer arguments. They say silver
was so valuable that it was demonetized
in order to keep it at home. Now they
are afraid that it will come back if re
monetized. If the pure gold standard is god goods
for the workman and laborer, what is
the reason wages in Canada are so low?
What about the invasion of low-priced
lalior that comes over to the New Eng
land cotton mills and harvest fields
Jndge J. FaCaples, J. Francis Forsythe,
Mark Hanna, Wm. McKinley and the
bankers of Wall street want the money
question taken out of politics and left to
them to manage.
There is a very stringent law in Ohio
against moving mortgaged property out
of the state. Hanna says McKinley
shall stay on his own doorstep. Novem
ber 3d the voters will say the same.
Pes Moines; Iowa) Register, rep., says :
"Mr. Bryan is all the time assuming
that the republican platform means that
we want to get rid of the gold standard
with the help of other nations. He says
if the gold standard is a good one, why
do they want to get rid of it? They do
not want to get rid of it, Mr. Bryan."
