There are no more sensible people In
the world than the American people.
Their sense and shrewdness are pro
verbial the world over. The individual
Yankee Is a man whom, In any situa
tion. It Is hard to outwit, and I have
never understood what has sometimes
become of the shrewdness that marks
htm as an individual when he Joins a
company. There Is no Intelligent man
In the country who now believes that
he can Improve his condition by giving
his nofc's. and yet It Is not many years
ago that some of the most eullghtened
states in the I'r.lon were carried away
by the delusion of unlimited green
bucks. The mistake we sometimes make
is in allowing ourselves to be swayed
by a crowd c niposed of those who. as
Individuals, would not exercise upon us
the slightest Influence. Tumult Is neith
er argument nor reason, and an Irre
sponsible person's opinion Is no better
when supported by that of a hundred
others equally Irresponsible.
The spot where we are confused Is
when we lose the Individual In the
crowd. He knows no more in the mul
titude than when he went In, but his
voice serves to Increase the uproar,
which often affects our senses.
We are in that dangerous position
now. The noise la dying down some
what, and as the crowd disperses we
discover many who, as Individuals, have
never possessed our confidence. Some
of the leaders are men of bad repute.
There are Altgeld and Tillman, who rep
resent ideas that would cause every
honest man In the country to bolt his
doors, and Bryan, who can never In
spire widespread confidence until emo
tion Is considered a better guide than
reason, and a large number of others
who are sufficiently described by nam
ing their associates. These men were
never trusted In the ranks; why should
they be trusted as leaders? If every
man will carefully consider In his own
home the conditions that surround him
and the propositions made to him. If he
will bring to bear his business sagacity
and experience with a conscientious
desire to be fair with the rest of the
world, he will not go far astray In his
conclusion. His Judgment Is likely to
be better under the sobering restraints
of his family and home thnn under the
excitements of a mass-meeting. We
may put It down as an absolutely safe
rule that whatever Is not good for us
when alone la not good for us In com
pany with others.
These considerations will aid us in de
ciding what to do with this trouble
some question of our finance. There

were united In the purpose to maintain
the honor and Integrity of the nation.
A large portion of Air. Pile's speech
was given to a review of the money
question, which he handled In a master
ly and convincing manner.
The speaker said that the Republican
parly believed In bimetallism amongst
all the nations and had pledged Itself
to that end, and would keep Its prom
Ise. "We want our money as well as
our ling to lie respected when we take
It abroad. They talk about bl-nietalllc

I'nlon. who put more sliver In circu
lation, and not France alone why not
tell the truth? liok at Mexico look at
the average man of that country he Is
about w hat the Populists want to bring
the American rltlxen to.
"When the American workman starts
on a trip to Mexico he knows, as we
all do, that Just before he crosses the
line he can exchnnge his t00 of t'nited
States money Into IU'00 Mexican, and if
he works In Mexico and earns $600 in
Mexican money, when he returns to
the I'nlted States he can only get J300
of our money In return for It. Why Is
It China, Japan, Mexico and South
American countries cannot elevate their
money? Because the great civilized na
tions of the earth are all on a gold ba
sis. The United States has always
held her head up and maintained her
self equal with the best, shall she now-
lower her standard? Not so long as
there Is a Republican to prevent It! Poor
Kansas demonstrates the results sure
to follow Populism, can the nation
afford to adopt such principles only to
double the wealth of China, Japan and
Mexico? I say that the people of the
United 8tatea will never stand it as
long aa the Republican party Uvea to
put It down." (Great applause.)
The speaker made a personal appeal
to the free silver Republicans, who he
said must not imagine they carried
away all the brains of the old party,
and urged them to get back Into the
fold as quickly as possible that they
might not have a lasting shame to re
gret. The great crime was committed

Intereating nature concerning that far
away Routhcrn country.
"We left Callao alx weeka ago, and

voyage to Axtorla. Since the revolu
tion and the Iota of Iqulqul In
Callao haa bee0 the principal aeaport
of Peru. The population of Peru la
about three millions. Her principal ex
porta are augar and cotton to England.
Coffee haa been grown In that country

tivation la now rapidly increasing, and
It will aoon become an article of ex

A revival haa now taken place In the
I most prosperous of Southern American
countries. Her navy consists of but one
j which shows that the foreign rela
; Utlons are all pleasant.
"Much interest Is now excited by rea-
,on ef the recent discovery of rich gold
washings In the streams tributary to
the Amazon, which runs through the
forests of the southern part of the
country. No doubt the business of
Peru would be In much better condi
tlon and Its people more prosperous
were It possible for them to adopt the
gold standard of money. But like Mex
ico and China It will be hard for her to
do this as she has been so long a silver
nation. Exchange Is quoted as 23-
pence for the sol, which Is a piece of
money corresponding to your I'nlted

are hopeful and free from suffering."
WHEAT LIVELY TESTERDAT.
It Goes Close to 71 and Winds f p a
Little Less than 70.
Chicago, October 14. In spite of the
ll cent advance reported In the local
market yesterday, Liverpool opened
this morning with a d decline. But it
had no effect on local operators, who
appeared crazy to buy wheat, and their
demands were not satisfied until tlie
first half hour of the session had elaps
ed. The first trades In December wheat
were at from 701 to 70-c, compared
with 70 at the close of the market
yesterday, and before the demand was
satisfied for a time It rose to 71 cents.
The strength came directly from San
Francisco, the messages from that city
being sensational, and as some of them
were accompanied by orders to buy
wheat, they were In that way made
doubly Impressive. One message read:
Six cargoes taken tor India, and five
for Austrialla; the India demand enor
mous." Northwestern receipts, too, were
much smaller than they have been re
cently running. That such a sharp ad
vance should bring out heavy lines of
long wheat waa to be expected and out
they came. One broker whose selling
credited to Armuor, let go of the first
large line, amounting to nearly 1.500,000
bushels. Then others came In and a
stupendous amount of wheat was
dumped on the market. A sharp decline
was Inevitable, and before the bottom
was reached, the price of December
had declined to 69Vi. a breathing
spell occurred and then came fun.
Prices fluctuated with the rapidity of
a kaleidoscope, and no one seemed to
know why. The price soared to 70c,
and from that shot up to 7Sti cents.
It seemed to have lilt its head against
something on the last Jump, so it fell
quickly after to 69-, and It vvas
struggling at the latter price at the end
of the session.
