A LI MOM SPEAKS.
Senator Allison, of Iowa, one of
the commissioners to the monetary
conference, spoke on Saturday last In
favor of the rejH'al of the Sherman
silver purchase law. He said he
voUmI for the law of lH'JO with great
hesitation, for he did not ticlleve In
the policy of piling up bullion lu the
treasury anil holding it there unused.
He favored coining every dollar of
silver In the treasury a soon as
practicable. He favored use of the
$ii(),000,0O0 selgnorage now iu the
treasury to maintain the parity be
tween the two metals. He said the
Cnl Sod Stales could not continue to
purchase silver without seriously en
dangering the standard established
in 1873, and bringing the nation,
with all it opportunities, wealth, la
bor and production to a silver stand
ard. Allison was questioned about
the recent monetary conference at
Brussels. He said the Brussels con
ference niale more progress respect
ing the solution of the silver question
than was made at all the prior con
ferences. If the United State would
undertake a policy restoring silver by
International arrangement, It would
be accomplished within a reasonable
time, the parity between the two'
metals would be restored, and silver
would practically be rehabilitated.
That wa the solution of the question.
Hill of New York asked w hether
the repeal of the purchasing clause
of the Sherman act would facilitate
or hinder perfection of such an Inter
national agreement, and Allison
replied that that was only a matter
of Judgment. George of Mississippi
&ked whether there was any senti
ment in Kurojie In favor of reassemb
ling the monetary conference.
Allison had no doubt that the public
opinion of F.urope was that a confer
ence of a nation should be assembled
to deal with the question, and In
that statement he did not exclude
Kngland. He believed if patience
were exercised, If the question were
dealt with In a statesmanlike way, If
senator would dismiss from their
minds all prejudices and party deal
ing and dal with the problem as a
question Involving the whole coun
try, Its integrity and it. Interest, the
time would soon come when gold
and silver would travel side by side.

Fortunately all money had been

burglars drilled a hole into the safe

Kl UAL Dtl'Ol'l LATION.
Dr. Lonjf-tatf recently read a ni'r
before the Itoyal Statistical msit'ty,
of (J real Britain on the subject of
rural depopulation. According to
his observation the universal ten
dency of the times Is a removal from
the the country to villages or cities.
No more men and women, he says,
will remain attached to the soil than
are absolutely required In each
place for it cultivation in the way
found to 13 mot remunt ratlve for
that place. He might have added
that the Introduction of agricultural
machinery on farms of great area
ha reduced the demand for manual
labor for a glveu product, and has
hcliied to depopulate rural regions
near great cities where the high cost
of land and the inability to apply
broad methods to agriculture makes
farming unprofitable. The tendency
Is very notlcealle in this country,
notwithstanding the great and con
tinuous tide of Immigration (directed
mainly to the agricultural land of
the West. The census of 1H1H) shows
an actual decrease In tho population
of 4-V counties, elderly In New En
gland, New York, Northern New
Jersey, Ten nessce, Kentucky, South
ern Michigan, Wisconsin, Eastern
Iowa and the mining counties of
Colorado, Nevada and California.
The losses in mining districts are due
to the working out of mines ; in the
agricultural states to migration to
cheaper anil better lands, and hit!.;'
eastern states to the working out ol
farm lands, the growth of mauufact
tures and the distioMition of the farm
lads to crowd Into the cities, where
there is kind of a lottery of labor, the
rewards lielng less sure, but some
times much greater than to agricul
tural labor. The changes are going
on continuously. The broad plains
are first occupied by a sparse isipu
lation living freely on the products
of their own soil ami having few
trade relations. The next stage is
one or agriculture ami trade, lu
which villiages ami towns begin to
appear, antl then follows a decadence
of agriculture, with temporary lossctt
of population to large districts, as the
farming class migrates to new states
or removes to the city. Then very
often follows a .new stage of growth,
when" manufactures become estab
lished, antl mechanics and mill
h a nds come to take the place of the
farmers In the count of opulation.
Always, however, the towns and
cities are growing at the exjienso of
the adjacent farming district. The
farm boy and the farm girl, living
within the Influences of a great city,
and noting the wealth of its inhabi
tants become dissatisfied with their
hard life of toil, and naturally desire
to change It for one of greater com
forts and greater rewards.
Some of them may observe that
there are very jKsir a well a very
rich in a great city, and that the
(MMirest farm hand lalxirer I rich by
comparison with his fellow of the
city, but they are always hoficfuli
and in spite of argument or statistics
they take their chances In the city
whenever they get an opportunity to
leave the old homestead. It is not
a matter that require legislation or
even advice. Each man governs
himself in such matters by what he
conceives to lie his own liest Interests,
ami the aggregate result is at least a
good a we rthould lie likely to get
from any attempt on the part of the
government to regulate the relation
between rural ami urlian population.
When agricultural pursuit pay well,
it will not bo necessary to drive men
to the field ; when they are less re
munerative than manufacturing ami
commercial persuit (or apKar to l
so), it Is not possible to keep all the
boys on the farm. Agriculture gives
a sure living, but little more ; just as
gtHxl securities bear a low rate of
interest. Commerce and manufac
tures offer a big reward to the suc
cessful, ami bankrupt or starve the
others, Just as sis-culative ventures
offer high rate of Interest w Ith little'
security for trie principal. But the
natural inclination of humanity is to
be hopeful, especially w here chances
apiioars to play apart, and hence the
country boys and girl crowd Into
the cities and engage In the fierce
struggle continually going on for
work and wages in the great centers
of jiopulation. It Is useless to argue
that they would lie happier on a
farm ; the mass would lie, but the
Individual would not. Each farm
lad Is perfectly wllllngthat the others
should go back to farm drudg
ery, while he remain In the city, to
reap tha rich reward of commercial
e Mtamtaitutturing industry, and the
pvtult U that all r-t to the city Hay
there, and the drain remain eoWant
upon the rural population.

THE HAWAIIAN (JlESTIOX.
Di.-atches front Washington, in

ment of A. S. Willi, of Kentucky,
a minister to Hawaii, asert that it
will be the policy of the Cleveland
administration to create a protector
ate, mild in it terms a to internal
affair but very rigid against outside
Intcrfcrancc, and that the L'uited
States will guarantee any permanent
government established by the vote
of the eople of Hawaii against over

Herein we may trace the fine hand
of that combination seemingly so

of preserving the statu and of main
taining a protectorate over tho
Hawaiian island which shall prevent
the Hsiple of that nation from offer
ing the soverlgnty of the Wands to
any foreign nation.
It will Is' in vain to search the
constitution of the United States for
any warrant, express or implied, for
the etablihmciit of a protectorate,
mild or otherwise, over a foreign
jurisdiction. If, as In the case of
Texas, an lmlccmlcnt nation wish

Ixvomean Integral part of the Amer
ican republic, well ami gotxl, but
when Hie United States undertaken
to asNume the role of guardian ami
protector for a foreign nation, that i
clearly a very different question.
If Hawaii wants to cede itself to
the United States, we may accept
the offer or decline It, as seems tho
more e.xedient for us, but the crea
tion of a protectorate Is quite another
matter. Against whom are the
people of Hawaii to lx protected t
