Hon. Wallace McCamant Discussed the
Issues of the Campaign at tke Court
Honse Wednesday Evening;.
It is doubtfnl if the voters of
Benton county hear another ad
dress during this campaign as
able as that delivered by Hon.
Wallace McGamant at the court
house last Wednesday even
ing. Mr. McCamant arrived on the
noon train from Portland, and
accompanied by Hon. J. D,
Daly and Chairman I. n. irvine,
of the Benton County Republi
can Club, left by private convey
ance for Philomatn, wnere ne
delivered a stirring address be
fore a considerable gathering of
citizens of that city and the sur
rounding country.
In the evening the court room
in this citv was filled with an
appreciative and attentive audi
ence to hear Mr. McCamant dis
cuss the principles enunciated in
the platform adopted by the re
publican party at Philadelphia.
After a sone by tne jeinpino
mmrtet. whidh elicited a hearty
encore. Senator Daly introduced
the speaker of the evening. Mr.
McCamant called the attention
of his audience to the prcwhecies
of Mr. Bryan regarding the dan
ger of the country trom imper
ialism" and "militarism" in the
event of the election of Mr. Mc-
Kinley. He said that Mr. Bry
an had made some propnecies
four years ago. If these had
proven true, we should place
confidence in the prophecies of
Mr. Brvan today: if they had
proven false, we had a right to
doubt him now. Mr. Bryan
said in 1896, that if the gold
standard were established
wages would be lowered, the
number of mortgages increased,
business failures would multiply,
money would become dearer and
disaster and panic would prevail.
This every man in America to
day knew was false. Mr. Bry
an's predictions had tailed in
every particular.
The sneaker auoted irom tne
platforms ot the two parties those
portions touching on the Philip
pines. The republican party,
said he, believe in bearing the
burdens of expansion and letting
the people of this country share
the blessings of such a policy.
The Bryan party believes in
bearing all the burdens of ex
pansion without deriving any
benefit therefrom. He said that
the democratic party contained
many good and patriotic men,
and they were oouno to get
around all right after awhile.
The party was like a man rid
iHg backwardslin a railroad train.
It never saw any ot tne gooa
thiues until they were past. The
democratic party always did the
right thing at the wrong time.
The republican party always did
the right thing at the right time.
To show to what a loolisn ex
treme the Bryanites were stretch
ing the principle ot "consent
ot the governed," the speaker
said he had a lively son. some
four years of age, who delighted
to watch his father shave. He
watched eagerly for an opportu
nity to seize the razor and cut
and slash to his heart's content.
This his father had not permit
ted htm to do? Had the father
done right? The boy bad never
given his consent to be governed,
and probably would deny sucn
consent if asked.
If the democratic idna of the
consent of the governed was cor-
rect, the boy's rights nao oeen
trampled upon. He should have
been permitted to use the razor
according to the dictates of his
Fortunately, Patrick Henry,
Thomas Jefferson and others
oftha framers ot the constitu
tion had left writines showine
their interpretation of this clause
in that document, and their ideas
did not coincide witn tne views
now being advanoed by Mr.
Bryan and his followers.
Turning to the money ques
tion, the speaker said that no
man need delude himself with
the fiooe that the gold standard
was safe if Mr. Bryan should be
elected. The revolution in pub
lic sentirnent that would be
necessary to insure Mr. Bryan's
success would fill congress with
democrats at the cominer election.
If Mr. Bryan is successful in No
vember, six months must elapse be-
fore his party could torce tree sil
ver upon the country, in tne
meantime every creditor in the
land would demand the gold tnat
was owed to mm. Jivery man
with money in the bank would
demand his gold. Money would
be boarded, tor no one would
make an investment where, un
der the oolicv of free silver, the
value of that investment would
be cut in two. and there would
equal the hard times of 1893.
In conclusion the speaker told
the story of Mark Twain's visit
to the tomb of Sir Walter Scott
An officious guide who was pos
sessed of an itching palm had
been accustomed to receiving a
tip from those to whom he re
lated the details touching the
tomb and its occupant. He told
of the heavy wooden casket
which contained the leaden coffin
of the departed poet. This
casket being contained in an iron
case weighing two tons. The
guide looked up expectantly, but
Mark toyed idly witb the cap he
held in his hand, and his face
wore a pensive look. The guide
proceeded, 'This in turn is con
tained in a vault of stone and the
whole is surmounted with a mar
ble block weighing nine tons."
He looked at Mark again, fully
expecting to see his hand reaching
for his pocket, but Mark re
mained motionless for a minute
and then said: "Well, I guess
you've got him. If he gets
away wire me at my expense."
"And," said Mr. McCammant,
"we have the Philippines. If
they get away, wire me at my
A Lncky Strike.
There May be a Snlt.
Wednesday, just after noon,
while engaged in taking up the
alley way near the Hulburt
property Hank Bier picked up
three dimes in succession. Geo.
Reed, who happened to be stand
ing near, suggested that they
dig deeper. Then and there
they formed a miners' partnership
and began energetic operations.
They scratched like dogs after
woodchucks and dldn'.t quit
scratching until they had exca
vated $8.75, all in nickles and
dimes. They showed plainly
that thev had been hidden for
years. The deposit was made
just under the edge of tha walk
at one corner, and the supposi
tion is that the coins were not
buried, as none of them were
more than six inches in the
earth, but that time had assist
ed in covering some of them to
this extent. The dimes were
fairly brieht, but the nickles
were badly tarnished. Most of
the coins were in a heap and
were cemented together solidly
with dirt until they resembled a
clod, and they had to be broken
apart. The latest date any of
the pieces bore was 1888, so it
may be concluded that they had
been buried between ten and
twelve years.
Many are the conjectures as to
how the money came to be there,
and it is generally conceded that
some oartv had stolen it and
hidden it there. Possibly there
were two of them and if either of
them ever returned for the money,
a hasty "feel" under the walk
may not have revealed it and the
party may have concluded that
the "other fellow" got away
with it and for his own safety
kept quiet. But all of this is
'the merest conjecture, and the
true history of the attair in all
likelihood will always remain
a mystery.
Hank and George divided
even, and both aeree tnat tms
is an era of prosperity. When you
can get money out ot tne earth
already coined it beats anything
yet realized at Nome. It may
be well to advise against too
general a removal of cross-walks
throaghout the city.
A Correction.
There is a possibility of Sher
iff Burnett being involved in a
lawsuit, but up to yesterday
forenoon he had not been in-
formed officially of any proceed
ings against him. Nor had any
papers relating to the matter
been filed with Clerk Watters. '
Should auv suit be brought
against Sheriff Burnett it will be
for the replevin of forty sacks of
exain. or the value thereof, and
John Stalbusch is expected to be
the plaintitt. From wnat can De
learned of the. matter it appears
that Mr. Stalbusch held a mort-
eaee on certain wheat raised by
Walter Cline, which he claims
was a bona fide mortgage. A.
Fifcher, having a claim against
Mr. Cline, had the sheriff attach
the wheat, and the papers were
served by S. L. Henderson, act
ing deputy for Sheriff Burnett.
Should the matter be pusneo,
Sheriff Burnett is amply pro
tected, as he exacted an indem
nity bond from the plaintiff for
whom the wheat was attached
before he proceeded in his offi
cial capacity in the matter. Our
contemporary stated in its last
isiue that the suit had been com
menced against Sheriff Burnett;
such is not the case. It further
stated that Coroner Wilkins, as
elisor, served the papers on the
--- -i : r - M,
sheriff. This in turn was incor
rect, as no papers had been
served, and if they had been
Coroner Wilkins is empowered
to serve papers on the sheriff and

stances he is incapacitated as
