STICK TO THE OLD ISSUES.
Democrat* Will Make Their Fljgiit
In IIMIO on (lie (JtilenKo Plat
form of 1 MINI.
There appears to be a quite general
feeling that the free and independent
coinage of silver by the United States
at the ratio of sixteen to one will not
be a leaning issue in the next presi
dential eampaign. There are indica
tions that conservative democrats are
anxious to delegate silver to the rear
or to leave the ratio to a democratic
eongress to determine. In Pennsyl
vania the democratic state convention
ignored the silver issue in favor of
state issues. In New York efforts are
bting made by those who have been
party leaders to induce the state con
vention to ignore the issue in ♦he plat
form this year. There is a decided if
silent element in all the central west
ern states which would have the party
enter the next presidential campaign
untrammelcd by the sixtt en-to-one de
mand of the owners of silver mines.
But with all the opposition to free
coinage at the old ratio and the very
general falling off of interest on the
part of the people in the question,
present indications point to the mak
ing of silver coinage at the ratio of
sixteen to one a prominent issue in the
next campaign by tiie democrats.
Most of the democratic state conven
tions have declared for the wlioleplat
form of Ciiicago and have indorsed C'ol.
Bryan as the democratic statesman to
be a standard bearer a second time.
The ultra silver element is in control
of the party machinery in all the
states. In Illinois if was given out.

champion of tha silver platform. Ex-
Gov. Stone, of Mississippi, has made a
pilgrimage to New York to inform the
democratic leaders in that state that
they will not be recognized as belong

There is every reason why the promi
nent leaders in the silver movement of
3896 should make a desperate effort
to make silver the most prominent
issue of 1900. They caused (heir party
to change front tin the coinage ques
tion. Thus they became the leaders
of a new democratic party. To sweep
back to the olti party moorings and
again become the champion of a
change of coinage ratio as it was
when it changed the ratio from fifteen
to one to sixteen to one, would cer
tainly discount the leaders of 1596, and
•hat. is the thing they fear and which
they will fight. If for no other reason
t-he Bryan leaders will make as much
of the silver mine owners' demandtlur
ing this campaign as they can, and if
they seem to gain by it in the fall elec
tions they will lie eager for it in 1900.

BUILDERS OF THE NAVY.
A Reiinblicnn Entitled to
the Credit of Creating; l)ewfj
and Schley'* Ship*.
In various parts of the country there
is a very commendable disposition on
the part of our democratic brethren to
claim the honor of having fathered the
present navy. They have so few things
to point to with pride there is no won
der that they should wish to claim the
credit for the creation of the ships
which brought immortal glory to Dew
ey and Schley. But are their claims
well founded, or are they talking
through their hats? Let us see.
Fifteen years ago a congress, repub
lican in both branches, and a repub
lican president took steps to build the
cruisers Chicago. Boston and Atlanta,
and at the same time added new ma
chinery to the old monitors Monad
nock, Terror and Puritan. That was
the beginning of the present navy.
It may be said to the credit of Mr.
Cleveland and Mr. Whitney that they
carried on the good work in a most
commendable way, but they were not
the originators of the idea, by any
means; and, further than this, an ex
amination of the records will show
that a larger proportion of republic
ans than democrats have supported all
steps looking to the extension of our
naval power. Most of the champions
for a big navy have been republicans;
most of the opponents have been dem
It looks as though our democratic
friends would have togo into another

can point with pride.—Cincinnati Com
A Good War Measure.
Figures that do not lie will r.ot per
mit the democrats tolose sight of the
Dingley law. War or no war, the Ding
ley law is with us, pulling steadily in
the right direction and piling up sta
tistics to the discomfiture of the free
traders. The dutiable imports for Au
gust amounted to $27,819,69.1, and (he
imports free of duty (o $21,359,693; to
tal imports, $49,170,330. The exports
of merchandise for August amounted
!o $84,008.774; excess of exports over
imports, $35,429,388; increase of ex
ports over August last year, $4,210,270.
Even in a war month we sold more
abroad than we bought. Our imports
for tin first eight months of IS9B were
valued at $42(5,412.038, and the exports
at $778,674,025; excess of exports over
imports, $352,262,987. This represents
a foreign trade of $1,205,086,002 for the
eight months, or $1,807,628,986 for the
year. The Dingley law put the coun
try in good condition for war and
helj/cd >t every day during the war. It
put the balance of trade in ox;r favor
before the war and it has held it there
under the extraordinary conditions of
the last four months. It was intended
as a peace law, but it has done good
service as a war measure.—Chicago

Washington, Sept. 26.— The com mis

ing Saturday in the office of Presi
dent McKinlev at the White House
There were eight members present,
as follows: Maj. Granville M. Dodge,
of Iowa; Col. ,1. A Sexton, of Illinois;
( apt. E. P. Howell, of Georgia; Maj.
Gen. J. M Wilson, chief of engineers
of the United States army; Hon.
Charles Den by, of Indiana, late min
ister to China; ex-Gov. Woodbury, of
Vermont; ex-Gov. Beaver, of Pennsyl
vania, and Maj. Gen. 11. McD. MeCook,
of the army (retired).
President McKinlcy told the mem
bers that the organization of the
commission had been undertaken at
the request of Secretary Alger and
read a letter from the secretary in
which he made the request. The
president said that complaints had
been directed especially at the sur
geon general's, the quartermaster
general's, and the commissary gen
eral's departments of the army and
he suggested that the conduct of these
departments should receive especial
consideration at the hands of the com
mission. To this request he added
that it was his desire that the entire
military organization should, if it ap
peared necessary, be made the sub
ject of inquiry, saying that he wished
the committee togo to the bottom
of the subject in all eases and proceed
with its work without fear or favor.

nobleman's death, but where the

man, Mills believes, met with foul
play. Mills and liis party were
lost four days without food 100 miles
from Telegraph creek. On one occa

out of their way. They describe the
experience as terrible. They declare

A Dyspeptic's daily diet.
Dyspepsia U one of the most prevalent of
diseases. Thousands of people suffer from
it in a more or less aggravated form. Few
diseases are more painful to the individual
or more far reaching in their effects ou
human life and happiness. What the dys
peptic needs is not local treatment, not
mere temporary stimulus. The real need
is the toning up of the entire system. For
tify the system and it will do its own fight
ing, and promptly eject any intruding
disease. The success of Dr. Ayer's Sarsa
parilla in curiug iudigestion and dyspep
sia is due to just this quality which it
possesses, of renewing the vital forces,
repairing the waste ana loss of the body.
The ordinary treatment brings the food
down to the level of\he weak stomach.
Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla puts strength into
the stomach, and brings it up to the level of
the j-trong food fit for men. It does this
by strengthening the entire system. The
stomach cannot stay weak when all the
other organs are gaining strength. What
Dr, Ayer's Sarsaparilla will do for dyspep
sia is'best illustrated in cases like that of
M.S. Shields, Meridian. Miss. Mr. Shields
had got down to the last level of dyspepsia.

She was a new woman and was rathe*
proud of the fact that she had a place in the
world, of business that enabled her to regard

"I, go down on the ear early every morn
ing," she said, "with a young man who lives
a little farther out than 1 do, and 1 don't
mind saying that he doesn't know what
courtesy and gentlemanliness is."
"What does he do?" inquired her bia
brother, who doesn't think very much ol
new women, anyway, and is consequently op
posed to his sister being in the world of busi
"It isn't what he does," she replied; "it's
what he doesn't do. Time and again he has
let me stand up all the way downtown, when
it would seem as if the very least he could
have done was to get up and offer me his
"That is wrong, isn't it?" returned the
"It's contemptible selfishness; that's what
it is," she answered.
" The fact that he is in possession of a
seat," went on the big brother, "of course
does not entitle him to it if a fellow clerk of
the opposite sex happens to want it. And
yet men in business will do those things.
Why, I know a girl who has twice the griev
ance have in that line."
"What's happened to her?" she asked.
'Man there first and refused to give up
when she came along," he explained.
"Give up his seat?
give up his job. She has discovered
that it would just about suit her, but the
great big brute of a man hasn't chivalry and
courtesy enough to get up from his desk', bow
politely and say: 'Madam, permit me to offer
you my job.' Actually, he just hangs right
onto it himself and lets her go hunting round
for, something to do. Most ungentle-manly,
isn tit? Rut, do you know, I think the o.d
fashioned courtesy is—"

"It's a mighty sight more solemn when
she makes him think she has intrusted them

The Growth of Sociallam.
It is argued by deep thinkers that th«
growth of socialism is due to the large stand
ing armies of the world, in which men ar#
often made to enlist against their will, ana
thus become discontented with existing con
ditions. The growth of a stronger race of
people is due to the large sale of Hostetter's
Stomach Hitters, which is the best medicine
for costiveness, dyspepsia, fever, ague and
all nervous troubles. Try one bottle.

seasoned with a little salt, and drink only
a little milk. I became so bad that a trifle
too much of even these caused terrible
suffering in the regions of the stomach,
darting pains back of the eves, attended
with dizziuess and partial loss of sight.
The only way I could get relief was by vom
iting. Finally I had such a severe attack
that the entire left side of my body felt
numb and partially paralyzed, and in this
condition. I was taken to my room uncon
scious. The physicians failed to help me.
and none of the many remedies I took did
me any good. At last a friend piesented
me with a bottle of Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla
and before I had used half of it,l could see
a decided change for the better. 1 used
three bottles and was so completely cured
that for four years I have not been troubled
with the old complaint, but am rugged and
hearty and able toe it anything that can
be eaten. It would be impossible to say
too much in praise of Dr. Ayer's Sarsapa
rilla, and I would not give one bottle of it
for a do 7 rn of any other kind."—M. S.
