Immense Convention of Silver Men,
Populists and Greenbackers.
Chicago, Aug. 1. There will be a
declaration of war today and the signal
for hostilities will be given by the com
bined convention of populists, ftee sil
ver men and greenbackers. The foe to
be outlawed will be "the money power"
and tbis generalization la so broad that
it is designed to include capitalists of
Europe aa well as the money barons of
The scenes following the imposition
of the stamp and other taxes so holly
contested and indignantly denounced
by the colonial fathers of 1770 would
havo boon a fitting parallel to that fur
nished in the hotel lobbies today by the
popular arraignment of the attempt
which it is asserted is now being made
by .Great Brltiauand the monometallic
monarchs of Europe to coerce the Amer
ican continent into financial depend
ency upon fiats of the world. The
law of supply and demund and
the results of over production found no
place in their arguments, for every sug
gestion of this kind was repulsed by a
startling array of statistics and figures
tending to show that the closing of the
mints of India was the death blow to
free coinage in Europe, and that the
demand of Wall street for the repeal of
the Sherman law is but a part of the
great conspiracy against the silver re
publics of the Western hemisphere. It
is the opinion, too, of delegates now as
sembling that the conspiracy should be
firmly met and the enemy promptly
routed; and some of them grow hot
euough at times to Intimate that if leg
islation Bbali prove inefficient the re
course to arms might present a remedy.
Populists, greenbackers and free sil
ver men eeem to bo united as one on
the program that the repeal of the
Sherman purchasing act must be re
sisted to the last, unless there should
be coupled with it an act for the free
coinage of sliver or for a greater volume
of currency. The greenbackers and
Ppullflt who believe the flatof the
government is as potent to make
a dollar outof a atrip of green paper as
'to make a dollar of seventy cents worth
of sliver are, of course, not particular
whether the legislation substituted for
the Sherman act shall be free coinage
or government greenbacks; but fur the
sake of showing a solid front against
the common enemy, the monometal
lists, they will unite with Hie free coin
age men in a concerted resistance to
the Cleveland policy, unless a greater
volume of currency fchall be Insured to
meet the stringency of the financial
Aggressive committees are to be ap

Important work of the free silver cru

the weeks to come during the financial

proselyting of the leaders of labor or
ganisations is to follow next. It is to
be a great moral crusade, a weakening
of the masses, until tho popular det

of the people will be stronger than the

MORE GOLD COMING FROM EUROPE
Creates n Much Bettor Fooling on
The Silver Men.
Chicago, Ills., Aug. 1. The nation
al ooyention of the American Blinetal-
llo League, met at 10 o'clock this morn-
lug at the First Methodist church audi
torium. It Was the largest assembly
of a like character in the history of the
present financial agitation. 'Mayor
Carter H. Harrison welcomed tho dele
gates to the city.
HARBISON FOR SILVER.
In bis address Mayor Harrison said:
"It is said you are silver lunatics upon
whom I Ioo"k. I am rather glad to wel
come such lunatics. It is crazy men
that march the world forward and
make progress a possibility. If the ac
tion of 1878 should be blotted from the
annate of "Americana political action, I
believe that sliver would be worth 129
cents an oun.o today." Hon. Thomas
Ptterson, chairman of the Colorado
delegation, responded to the Mayor.
Chairman Warner, of the Bimetallic
league then delivered his opening ad
dress. WARNER'S SI'fKOH.
Warner eutd "that to attribute the
present widespread fear aud distress to
(be sliver urchaslng law is absurd.
The real object lesson of the situation
Mery different from that which the
gold conspirators intend. It enables
us to see the beginning of shrinking in
riches that niuut tako pluco in order to
go to a purely gold banja. Tho trouble
Is In the change In money standard.
Tho establishment of a single gold
standard Is equivalent to putting the
value of two dollars into one."
He characterized the silver act of
1873 as a crime ubd said he was willing
to let both the Sherman laws go to
gether and place the country back
upon the constitution aud tho law as it
stood before 1873.

THE ADMINISTRATION'S POLICY
A Man Able to Earn His Support
Has No Title to a Pension.
PiTTSBaRO, July 1. Judue Slagel, of
the county court, recently wrote Assist
ant Secretary of the Interior Reynolds
about the recent suspension of many
pensions, etc. Ho has received a
lengthy reply from Mr, Reynolds, ex
plaining the polloy of the administra
tion. Reynolds says substantially that
the suspensions to whlob the judge re
ferred were made- by an order of the
secretary, holding, in substance, that a
man who Is able to earn his support by
manual labor has no title to a pension,
undor section 2 of tho aot of June 27,
1890. The order of Com
missioner Raum, fixing rates under
this aot, Ignored the essential basis of
pensionable status, inability to perform
manual labor. Furthermore, evldonce,
when It might have shown tho disabil
ities were the result of violous habits,
was not required, the commissioner's
ruling thus superseding tho law.
Again, Raum treated disabilities not of
service orluln the samo as disabilities
which wore. The present secretary
having found erroneous orders of Raum
unrevoked and claims adjudicated
thereunder unquestioned, could not do
otherwise than revoke these ordors,
providing a now one In accordance
with the law for future praotloe, and
order a re-exam! nation of prior adjudi
cations to correct the error. Raum's
error was not exposed until January 7,
this year, after 321,130 cases had been
adjudicated In pursuance thereof. The
administration would havo been a party
to perpetuatlug a monstrous wrong to
the nation if tbeso claims remained un
examined. The Message.
