Democrats to Be Confronted VVitli
"Washington, Aug. 7. It Is thought
the president's message will not go to
oongress aa a bill tomorrow. Tho mes
sage is only about three thousand words
In length. Beyond tlie fact that It Is
largely devoted to financial matters,
nothing reliable can be! learned regard
ing It. Free silver Democrats express
themselves agreeably surprised at what
they understand as moderation in the
president's recommendations, while
recommending tbo unconditional re
peal of the Sherman act they under
stand he recognizes silver as one of the
monev metals which must bo main
talned, but points out that with the
present attltudo of the European coun
tries a proper ratio between'gold and
silver cannot be maintained by this
country atoue. Therefore be doeanot
favor the coinage of silver under the
present conditions except for subsld
uary purposes. He thinks in this way
Europo will be coerced into au Interna
tional agreement more favorublo than
heretofore. He favors silver on a parity
with gold, and stands by the platform
of 1892, but says that tho platform can
not be carried out because a fixed parity
cannot be maintained. Prominent
Democrats of both wings have been
given to understand that these are the
president's views. It Is understood
that Cochran, of New York, and By
num, of Indiana, will lead the anti
silver Democrats In the house.
How It Will Be Dose.
The Intention Is that Cockran shall
at the first opportunity, introduce a
bill to repeal the Sherman aot outright
without anv condition or substitute,
Culberson, or nome one will Introduce
a bill which will provide for tho repeal
of the purchasing clause in tuo Sher
man act and provide for the coinage of
silver without charge for mintage at a
rat o of 10 to 1, The bill, aa Is under
stood in the wording, will follow aa
closdy as may be, section 7 of the
Democratic platform of 1802. By this
means It is thoui;ht that Democrats,
who are opponents of the bill thus
framed will beiput.ln an attitude before
the country of opposing their own plat
form. Congross Meets.

"The extraordinary condition of af
fairs throughout tho country has necec
sltated our meeting in an extraordinary
session. In so farasthat condition la at
attributablo to existing laws, wo are no
wise responsible therefor. Now, for
theHrst time In more than thirty yearp,
we are in full power. We can repeal
the laws and wo can make good ones.
The people have entrusted ua with that
power and expect us to exorcise it for
their behalf. Our financial system
should be revised and reformed; strict
economy In publlo expenditures should
be observed and taxation should bo
equalised aud greatly reduced. To
these purposes are we thoroughly com
mitted. We must redeem our pledges.
Let us begin work at once. Let us lay
aside eyery other consideration than for
the publlo ood and endeavor to so dis
charge the duties assigned us as to ro
storo confidence, proaioto prosperity
and advance tho general welfare of all
the classes of our people. Sincerely
grateful for your confidence and esteem,
I pledge inybdf. to devote to tho dis
charge of the duties of the responsible
position you have assigned mo to with
all the energy and ability I possess."
