PUSHING WAR ISSUES.
Utmorrali Are Krfling Aronnd to
Find a Substitute fur Free
The democrats are pushing' war is
sues to the front in their state and
congressional campaigns. Nearly
every democratic state convention has
adopted resolutions antagonistic to
'he annexation policy of President Me-
Kinley's administration. In New
Hampshire the democratic convention
declared against the acquisition of
any territory except for coaling and
naval stations. The sume declaration
was made in the lowa convention. The
Missouri convention declared against
the annexation of the Philippines or
other territory in the eastern hem
isphere. In Vermont the convention
opposed the "imperialistic policy of
the republican party." In Ohio the
democrats declared that they did not
want the Philippines annexed under
On the othtr hand, the republican
convention in California declared that
national welfare demanded the reten
tion of the Philippines. The Vermont
convention opposed the-surrender to
Spanish misrule of any territory now
or hereafter acquired. The Colorado
republicans declared unqualifiedly in
favor of keeping forever in place the
American flag wherever it has been
unfurled. Ohio approved the presi
dent's policy Illinois declared that
the United States should hold such
possessions in the conquered territory
as would be advantageous to its inter
ests in time of war and peace. New
Hampshire declared in favor of such
disposition of the Philippines as would
extinguish the sovereignty of Spain
and make good our obligations to the
peoples of these islands. New Jersey
declared emphatically in favor of the
expansion policy of the administra
tion, and the New York convention
spoke as positively.
At first there was disinclination on
the part of the democratic managers
to grapple with the war issue. The
campaign on land and sea was so suc
cessful and the results so great that
they could not. as in 1804, say that the
war was a failure. But within recent
weeks the yellow press campaign, en
larging on the horrors of war, has in
fluenced democrats to make the con
duct of the war an issue. The demo
cratic convention in Connecticut made
the astonishing declaration that.while
the war had been a great success and
had brought new honors to the Amer
ican people and fresh glory to their
flag, the management of the war "has
chilled our exultation and brought
home to us a sense of shame." II
charged the administration that has
conducted the most successful war in |
our history with incompetence and j
venality. In Illinois and in New York
the democrats are taking practically
the same position. Everywhere the
word has gone out to dwell on the
horrors of the war in an effort to
make the people forget the glories of
The democrats are making the same
mistake in ISOB that they made in
1864. Then in the very crisis of the
war for the union, just before the At
lanta campaign, when the great issues
of the war were hanging in the bal
ance, when the union cause needed
strengthening and the union soldiers
encouragement, the national demo
cratic convention declared the war a
failure and asked for a cessation of
hostilities. Thousands of war demo
crats in the army and out turned
squarely against the infamous and
treasonable platform of their party
and supported Abraham Lincoln
i gainst George P.. McClellan. So dis
astrous was the blunder of the demo
crats in 1864 that it required 20 years
for the party to regain the confidence
cf the people. Some of the most con
spicuous democrats of the time open
ly went over to the republican party,
and in many of the regiments in the
field not a single vote was cast for the
It seems incredible that the demo
cratic leaders of this day should re
peat the blunder of 1864. but they are
doing it. Certain republicans are giv
ing them aid in trying to push petty
local issues to the front. This is a
suicidal policy. The issues of this cam
paign are the expansion pol icy of Pres
ident McKinley and the conduct of the
war. Will the people stand by the ad
ministration that brought the three
months' campaign to so glorious an
end. or will they turn just when the
Spaniards are watching every indica
tion of public sentiment and give en
couragement to the enemy by repudia
tion of the war policy and war admin
istration? This is the issue, and it can
not be evaded. The democrats are
against holding the Philippines,
against the annexation of Puerto Pico
and Cuba, and they were against the |
annexation of Hawaii. They are in
favor of belittling the results of
the war in the interest of partisan ad
vantage. Republicans should vote this
time for the army and navy, for the
expansion policy and for the approval
of the war policy. Chicago Inter
election of a house hostile to
the administration would be a na
tional calamity. It would halt and
turn backward a rising tide of agricul
tural. industrial and commercial pros
perity which under a continuance of
present conditions seems destined to
surpass the proudest records of the
nation. The approaching struggle will
result in the election of a republican
house. Of that we have no doubt what
ever. But it will be no mere boys'play,
and the sooner we make up our minds
to that fact the better. —N. Y. Mail

SILVER BEING DROPPED.
I The Itrmm-rntM Are I.etlliiK <■» of
■ lie Cnnilirrnnnir (Inap
The simultaneous repudiation of sil
ver by the Connecticut democratic
stateconvention and by Brooks Adams,
a former Massachusetts Bryanite lead
er, show that the democratic party
east of the Alleghenies has forever
broken with the sixteen to one folly.
In the Connecticut convention there
was a square fight made on the sixteen
to one issue. An out and out goid man
was nominated for governor, and the
attempt of the silver faction to secure
a reaffirmation of the Chicago plat
form was overwhelmingly beaten.
About the same time that the Con
necticut democrats were overthrow
ing the silver element of their party
Brooks Adams, one of the best known
of the living members of the great
Adams family, was declaring that the
silver issue was forever dead in this
country. The surprising part of the
Adams matter is not that he has aban
doned the silver cause, but that he
ever embraced it. The only books or
tracts of any ability ever printed on
the silver side were written by Adams.
His advocacy of sil*-erism in 1896 gave
a semblance of solidity and respect
ability to the sixteen to one fraud such
as it did not get from any other source.
This repudiation of silver by the
eastern dtmocrats is. of course, of na
tional significance. Connecticut's ac
tion will probably be followed by the
New York democrat? in their state
convention. A strong attempt has
been made by the Bryanites to get the
New York democrats to indorse the
money plank of their party's platform
of 1596. This object sent ex-Gov. Stone,
of Missouri, on his recent eastern pil
grimage. Stone, as well as Bryan and
all the other silver chieftains, fee! that
if silver is defeated in the coming
New York convention it will have no
chance in the national gathering in
1900. If Xew York's democracy re
fuses to sanction the democratic
money plank of 1896 no state in the
entire east will accept it, and this will
force its abandonment by the national
democracy. New York was whipped
into line for the support of silver in
1896. but the plurality of 268.000 against
that foil J' in that state in that year will
frighten the western and southern
democrats from attempting any such
disciplinary measure two years hence.
The democratic leaders know that
while the republicans may be able to
win without New York, that state's
electoral vote will be absolutely es
sential to democratic success.
There is no room ior doubt now that
silverism will be immediately and for
ever abandoned by the democracy of
'every eastern state."The free silver
cause is hopeless in this country." says
Joseph B. Sargent, the Bryanite condi
*'ate for governor in Connecticut in
1896. Sargent has given up the silver
tight, and the majority of his support
ers of two years ago are following his
course. Silverism is doomed in this
country, and Bryan. Stone. Blaml and
the rest of the fanatics will discover
this truth long before the convention
of 1900 meets. The national democ
racy will not deliberately throw the
whole cf the eastern group of states
into (he republican column two years
hence, as they did two years ago. They
said then that they could win without
the east, but the immense preponder
ance against Bryan in the electoral
college has cured the western demo
cratic leaders of this lunacy. No policy
which the eastern democrats will re
ject will be sanctioned by the next na
tional convention. For selfi'h reasons
the republicans would be glad to see
the democrats two years hence put
up the ticket upon the old platform,
as that would make the republican vic
tory easier and bigger than it was two
years ago. but it is safe to predict that
a new set of men and a different set of
influences will be at the front in demo
cratic politics in 1900. —St. Louis Globe-

gal Contest Over the In
troduction of KvlUence.
Philadelphia, Oct. 6.—Senator Quay,
his son Kichard, and Charles 11. Me-
Kee, of Pittsburg, law partner of
Lieut. Gov. Lyon, appeared before
Magistrate Jertnon in the Central sta
tion court yesterday to answer to the
charge of conspiracy in the alleged
misuse of public money in connection
with John S. Hopkins, former cashier
of the People's bank, of this city, who
committed suicide soon after the fail
ure of the bank in March last. Ex-
State Treasurer Haywood, for whom
n warrant has been issued in connec
tion with the conspiracy charges, was
not in court, but it is promised that
he will be here on Friday to answer
to his accuser. After a hearing Sen
ator Quay, his son and Mr. MeKee
were bound over for appearance at the
next term of court. I'.ail was fixed
at $5,000 in each case, David H. Lane,
a local political leader, going bail.
The case now goes for trial at the
November term of court.
The testimony produced by District
Attorney Graham was in the shape of
al»out 20 letters and numerous tele
grams covering a period from Septem
ber. 1897. to February. 189 tt , addressed
by Senator Quay to Cashier Hopkins,
directing the purchase and sale of
large blocks of stocks and arranging
for the placing of margins; a letter
from State Treasurer Haywood to the
president of the People's bank, and a
private memorandum book of Cashier
Hopkins'. The lawyers representing
the accused fought hard against the
introduction of the latter, but it went
in as evidence.
The district attorney averred that
the evidence he produced showed that
Senator Quay had the use of $200,000
of the state's deposit of over $500,000
in the People's bank for stock specu
lation; that Haywood placed SIOO,OOO
of state funds in the People's bank on
condition that that amount of money
lie loaned to Senator Quay's son. and
that there was a regular assignment
of interest on state deposits in flie
bank to certain accounts, one-third of
it going to MeKee, all of which he
claimed was a violation of the state
law prohibiting a bank official from
making such transactions and that
the accused persons were guilty of
conspiracy in joining with Hopkins in
liufus K. Shaplcy and A. S. Shields,
two of the brightest lights of the local
bar. represented the accused. The at
torneys for the defense opened the
proceedings with a fruitless effort to
secure from the district attorney the
names of the persons responsible for
There were only three witnesses.
The first was Thomas W. Harlow, re
ceiver for the People's bank, who is
also a special assistant district attor
ney. Mr. Barlow stated that in his
capacity as receiver he opened the
dead cashier's desk and found among
other things a number of letters and
telegrams and a book containing
memoranda in Hopkins' handwriting.
This book, referred to by Lawyer
Shields as "the red book." was about
a foot square and contained 200 pages.
Albert L. Tabor, receiving teller of
the People's bank, identified the hand
writing in the book as that of Cashier
Hopkins and also identified a num
ber of letters as written by Senator
Quay and Treasurer Haywood. A
number of these letters were putin
evidence, one from Haywood to Pres
ident McManes. saying that $600,000
of state funds would be deposited the
following week and that Richard
Quay be allowed to borrow SIOO,OOO.
Through the third witness, Meyer
(loldsmith. an expert accountant who
had worked on the bank's books, Mr.
Graham finally got the "red book" ad
mitted in evidence.
Only a few entries were read. They
showed that between April .10 and
Oct fiber 31, 1897. the state deposit in
the bank ran up from $525,000 to
$565,000. From this total there was a
deduction of 20 per cent, evidently as
Mr. Graham explained it.for the
bank's use; then an entry "less $200,-
000 Quay. 184 days." For this period
the interest was computed in the
hand book as $5,944, one-third of
which was marked paid "C. 11. McK."
In October. 1896, there was a compu
tation of interest on state deposits
amounting to $7,253. of which $2,451,
or one-third, was marked "handed to
('. H. MeK."
Mr. Quay last night in response to
an inquiry for a statement by a re
porter spoke as follows:
I think no one who was present at the hear
ing to-day entertains afiv doubt to the truth
fulness of the charge boldly made by my coin?

district attorney and will not nermit him to

answered except on a trial in court. <if course
everybody knows that on such a hearing 1
could not be permitted to make any defense
or show the falsity of these charges, and my
counsel advises me it would be useless to at
tempt to do so at this time and in such a
proceeding Hut you may be sure that I have
instructed them to force this case to a speedy
trial in a court where both sifLes can be heard,
and after that to expose legally and punish to
the utmost the instigators of this proceeding.
Mr counsel assures me that not a scintilla ol
legal evidence was offered to-day to justify the
issue of a warrant or a binding over. As to
the charges themselves I have simply this to
say, that they are absolutely false and wholly
