Officer and Delegates of Local Clnba
Hon. l.T. Oeer, of Marion county,
now often spoken of In connection with
the next republican nomination for gov
ernor, came In on Tuesday's local In re
sponse to an invitation from the M Kin
ley club to address the people of Hons
burg from a republican standpoint, the
special occasion being the lime for ibe
election of nfllcers of the ( lob and ibe
selection of delegates to attend the
league convention at l'ortland neat
Tuesday. Mr. Ueer was met at tho do-
pot by a committee 01 prominent repu'i
lican of the city who escorted hl.-n lo
the Hotel MvClallen where apartments
had alroady lieen provided for him. aud
lu thu evening he delivered an address
at the court house. I be attendance was
not large, hut very fair considering that
tho stakes to be paid for, politically
speaking, in the coming campaign are
not yr t up. In Die absence of Judge
Laoghary, president of Ibe club, K. I).
Stratford, presided aud announced th
drat order of business the election of
officers, and the following were elected:
President, K. I. Stratford.
Vice Presidents, J. W. Wright and I.
H. K. bulck.
Secretary, J. It. IMdy.
Treasurer, W. A. Frater.
Delegates to the state leagus conven
tion : (ieo. M. llrown, D. S. K. Hoick.
I.C. Fullerton. J. 1J Kddv. K. L. Mil

K. Godfrey, M. McCoy, H. C. Nlocnm,
F. 1). Hirstford, I. It. Kiddle, W. A. Fra-
ter and John II. Shupe.
I he president then introduced Hon.
T. T. Oeer, who entertained tbe audi
once with a plain, every day common
sens) talk on Ibe question of Ibe free
C iosge of silver. He began by giving a
History nv me coinage laws 01 Hie L oiled
Stales from 1701' to tbe local led crime
nf 1H7-), and showed conclusively that
unless (he legal ratio of the two metals,
gold and silver, correspon led precisely
wuh me market ratio mere never had
bepu and never could be, under free
coinage, concurrent circulation. The
m ney that was overvalued at the mint
Invariably drove oat the dearer coins.
He s'-otiied the idea that because the
world's debts were many times in
in excels of the world's coin or money
ttiat therefore the debts could not be
paid till the volume of tbe currency
equalled the amount of the debt. A
twenty dollar piece is not destroyed
after it has paid a twenty dollar debt,
ll can be used at once to pay anolber. It
does not teijijire a thousand bushel bas
kets to measure a thousand buohelsof po
tatoes; one basket tan do the work. Mr.
(eer spoke from tbe standpoint of a
workiugmau to workingmen, and his re
marks were much appreciated. At tbe
conclusion about a score of new inem-
herstdgned the club roll.
