THE DALLES, OREGON, WEDNESDAY MAY 8. 1895
THE NEXT CAMPAIGN
Silver' Will Be the Leading
SO SAYS EX-SENATOR MARTIN
Senator CtUlom Thinks This Country
Cannot G1t Both Metals an
Ban Francisco, May 7. Ex-United
States Senator John Martin, of Topeka,
who baa been for many years an interest
ing figure in Kansas politics, arrived in
this city yesterday. Senator Martin has
come out here in the interests of the
Hudson Reservoir & Canal Company, of
Arizona, of which be is president, and of
the Central Arizona railway. The sena
tor, who is a democrat, speaks in no un
certain way on the silver question. He
"There cannot be the slightest doubt
of silver being the leading question in
the next campaign. Can you imagine
any other question of importance? The
tariff is out of the way. If the republi
cans get control of the next administra
tion there may be a little revision of the
tariff, but nothing essential. They can't
fight a campaign on the foreign policy.
That is a question that could not "become
of importance except in time of .war.
Having these questions out of the way,
and bavins no. local issues that can di
vide the parties, there is no question
left except the silver question.
"Tne republican party will do as it al
ways has done, adopt a platform that
can be read both ways, and nominate a
man to fit it. In the democratic conven
tion they are going to have a row. The
party is now practically in regard to the
. silver question, just in the position it
was in 1850 in regard to slavery. Two
-i thirds of the members of the convention
or more will be composed of silver men,
and it will adopt a platform in favor of
the free coinage of that metal at a ratio
of IS to 1 and will nominate a man in
sympathy with that platform, but not
Mr. Cleveland. He has been honest and
fair and consistent with all his preaching,
He never was a silver man.
"In case the democrats and republi
cans both adopt platforms and make
nominations in favor of gold, there will
someiomg use mis oioiey movement-
for silver and eilver only. I believe the
populists wi.ll indorse it and lay aside for
the time their other causes.
"If the democratic party does not
adopt a platform in favor of the free
coinage of silver, it will not carry a single
state in the Union. ' Senator Morgan, of
Alabama, told me lately that on any
other sort of platform the democrats
would be swamped . by tbe populists,
even in that state. Senator Harris told
me the same thing of Tennessee, and
Cooper of Georgia and Daniel of Vir
York created quite an excitement in
public circles at Washington. Officers
of the. treasury department are disposed
to be reticent concerning the gold syn
dicate of New York purchasing gold bul
lion of western smelters at rates higher
than those paid at the mints. They ad
mit that the receipts at the mints had
sensibly diminished ever since the con
tract for the purchase for gold bonds
was awarded to the Belmont-Morgan
syndicate, but it is evident that for
some time past the treasury bae been
compelled to pursue a policy which will
assist the syndicate in delivering gold In
accordance with tbe terms of the recent
bond sate contract.
Another feature of the affair lies in
the fact that the production of gold in
the United States has increased to such
an extent as to make it an object for
this foreign syndicate to corner or con
trol the gold market, and inasmuch as
tbe Belmont-Morgan syndicate obtained
not only the privilege of purchasing
these bonds, at a very low figure, but a
monopoly of all bonds issued between
now and next October at the same rate,
it is clear that from the high price they
obtain on the sale of tbe gold bonds
abroad they can' afford to pay a pre
mium for gold bullion over and above
the rates fixed at the mints. In this
way the syndicate obtains practically a
monopoly ot the gold product of the
United States, and ' particularly tne
product in Colorado, where the increase
in gold production has been so large in
the last year or - two. The treasury
seems to be entirely in the hands ot the
syndicate. It must have gold to main
tain its reserve even if it practically
cripples the purchasing operations of
Men of All Parties Join It In Kansas
Kansas Citt, May 7. At a meeting
held at the Coates house the first steps
were taken for organizing a free silver
league in this city. The organization is
to be educational in its nature, and to
have for its exclusive purpose tbe restor
ation of silver to its old place on a basis
of 16 to 1. It will be strictly nonparti
san. At the meeting were professional
men, capitalists, wholesalers, manufac
turers and retailers, men widely differ
ing politically on other questions. A
committee to prepare a plan of organiza
tion was appointed. A suggestion that
the organization become a member of
the Bimetallic League was referred to
the committee for consideration.
In the Syndicate's Hands.

Murder Mot Suicide.
Ashland, Wis., May 7. Martin
Thrush was found fatally wounded in his
house early on the morning of April 29,
and op to within an hour of the funeral
it was supposed to be a case of suicide.
Then it was discovered that the man
suspected of the murder was a member
ot the jury of inquest. The jury was
thereupon dismissed, and the suspected
man, Casper Emmett, together with
Thrush's widow, was arrested.
The Thrushes came bere from Mich
igan about eight years ago. Two years
previously, while working in the lumber
district, Thrush had married one " Kit
tie" Sweet. She is now the widow of
ThruBb. According to the story told by
the widow to neighbors who came in
after the discovery of Thrush's nncon
scious body in tbe attic, the couple spent
the evening out. Shortly after mid
night she heard her husband get out of
bed and go to the attic. A moment
later she heafd a shot and a fall
Thrush died 43 hours later, without re
gaining consciousness. -Arrangement
for the funeral on Wednesday were com
plete when the doctors' decided that i.
they were to testify at the inquest they
would want more exact information than
they had secured, and the coroner order
ed the funeral postponed until a post
mortem could be held. When the jury
reassembled, the doctors reported that
what, bad . externally appeared to be a
bullet-hole was in reality a wound made
by a blunt instrument, and that tbe
skull bad been fractured. .
Meanwhile it bad been discovered
that Emmett, one of the jurors, boarded
with Thrush, and during the recess Em
mett had been observed talking earnest
ly with Mrs. Thrush, aod some of the
words which were caught confirmed the
suspicions already aroused and tbe ar

Any one who has ever had an atack
of inflammatory rheumatism will rejoice
with Mr. J. A. Stumm, 220 Boyle
Heights, Los Angeles, over his fortunate
escape from a siege of that distressing
ailment. Mr. Stumm is foreman of
Merrian's confectionery ' establishment
Some months ago, on leaving the heated
work room to run across the street on an
errand, he was caught out in the rain
The result was that when ready to go
home that night he was unable to walk,
owing to inflammatory rheumatism. He
was taken home,' and on arrival was
placed in front of a good fire and
thoroughly rubbed with Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. During the evening and
night he was repeatedly bathed with this
liniment, and by morning was relieved
of all rheumatic pains. He now takes
especial pleasure in . praising Chamber
Iain's Pain Balm, and always keeps a
bottle of it in the house. For sale by
