The free and unlimited coinage of 46
cents' worth of silver into dollars and
the free and unlimited coinage of lies
designed to bring upon the military
organization of the country the con
tempt of Europe are the issues which
the democratic leaders of Indiana are
making most- prominent. The leaders
differ as to which of these issues is
the most potential, but many of them
believe with Altgeld, Teller and Sen
ator Allen, of Nebraska, that sixteen
to one is the better hope of the part}*.
There is no possible excuse in the
situation to thrust the silver mine
owners' job before the people after
its repudiation in 1890, when that re
pudiation was followed by a revival
of confidence and a marked improve
ment of industry anil business through
out the country. In 1890 there might
have been a possible excuse for an hon
est man being deceived by the claims
and predictions of the Bryans and the
"Coin" Harveys. They asserted that
labor would have less and less employ
ment, and that the prices of farm
products would decline to a lower fig
ure than ever known if the gold stand
ard should be continued. The gold
standard has been continued; tens
and tens of thousands of people have
found employment w ho were idle when
Mr. Bryan was haranguing the coun
try in 1596, and millions of dollars
more are paid as wages. For year*
the farmers have not received so good
prices for all their products as during
the years 1897 and 1898.
The Bryan orators told us that con
tinuing the gold standard would nar
row the volume of money, make it
scarce and advance the rates of inter
est. The volume of available money
was never so large as it li«s been Mince
1890, and the rates of interest were
never so low. During the last year
western banks have been carrying
larger deposits than ever before in
their history. This Is particularly true
of the banks in such states as Kansas.
Banks in western citiesi have had s*>
much money that some of them have
been discounting eastern paper.
This marked improvement in regard
lo the volume and ease of the money
market began with the defeat of the
silver agitation in November, 18'.i0.
The improvement of business began
as soon as the free and unlimited coin
age of silver was no longer a menacii.
And yet. with the good results of the
defeat of the free silver proposition in
IS9O, reckless politicians who now
dominate the democratic party in 111 is
and other western states insist on
making the free coinage of silver the
paramount issue in the campaign. In
the east every democratic convention
in states which the democrats have
carried whenever they have elected
a president bus hadi the good sense to
ignore the sixteen to one issue. There
Is every reason to believe that demo
crats in Indiana who are businessmen
would have the silver question ignored,
but such men have no influence in the
Those who will take time to con
sider the matter must see that a repe
tition of the silver agitation of 1890 in
1900 will destroy confidence in busi
ness circles and paralyze industry. If
that agitation should be as. aggressive
and as formidable as it was in 1890
business will be paralyzed as it was
then, arid thousands of men now fully
employed will be idle. Whether the
country shall have a repetition of the
Bryan campaign of 1890 depends large
ly upon the results of the elections
in the western states this fall. With
sixteen to one ignored in the- east by
the democrats of New York, Connecti
cut. New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and
the defeat of the silver democrats in
Indiana and other western states, the
silver question cannot be made a
menace to the industry and business

CAMERON COUNTY PRESS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1898.
SENATOR HANNA'S OPINION.
Importance of Controlling the Next
IIoum« mid SußtfitnliiK I"re«l
Senator Hanna, the chairman of the
republican national committee, in con
ference with the managers of the re
publican congressional campaign,
made some pointed and interesting
comments on the political outlook.
Among other things, he said:
"One can appreciate the exact situa
tion of the campaign when he recall#
that in IS9G there were 60 congress
districts in which members were elect
ed by majorities of less than 1,000
votes. This was true of democrats as
well as republicans. The majority of
these districts were carried by less
than 500 plurality, and you can see at
once how important it is to arouse in
terest and activity in these districts.
The republicans must not let the dem
ocrats get ahead of them in work. I
have every expectation of a repub
lican majority in the house, and it is
to the interest not only of the repub
licans but of the country at large that
the next house should be ir. accord
with the president, so as to carry out
his policy and sustaiu him in great
matters of state and government for
the next two years. History shows
that usually the congress elected in
the middle of an administration has a
majority adverse to the deminant
party. There are many reasons for
this, the chief among them being the
apathy among the voters, the result of
patronage. The offices have been dis
tributer!, and the men who worked in
the presidential campaign with the
hope of reward afterward have either
secured places or have been disap
pointed, and they lose interest in the
congress elections, or remain away
from the polls because of their disap
pointment. We do not want history
repeated tlfc's year, and, as I have said,
it is to the interest of the whole coun
try to have the house of representa
tives in accord with the president.
"The republican party has carried
out its pledges made at St. Louis so far
as a senate opposed to us has enabled
us to do so. The prediction that pros
perity would follow the election of Mc-
Kinley has been verified, and no one
dares dispute it. The country is now
prosperous because confidence has
been restored, and tlie question at the
polls this fall is: Shall we maintain
that confidence and keep prosperity,
(.r shall we unsettle conditions again?
The war lias been successfully waged,
and cur victories have been great and
glorious. Ttere are tremendous ques
tions y.'r to be solved, and the presi
dent's policy in regard to these mat
ters is to lie earrled out. Shall we have
a congress willing to aid him in the
wonderfully successful petfey he has
already pursued, or will the people of
the United States by their votes de
clare our war a failure and refuse to
sustain the president ?
"There is another question also in
the congress elections, and that is the
financial one. By the republican vic
tory in 1890 the country declared S<at<
silver was no longer an issue. lis.* the
democratic party is still declaring it is
an issue, and in all the state conven
tions held so far, except Connecticut,
Xew Jersey and New York, the Chi
cago platform has been reaffirmed.
Senator Jones, chairman of the demo
cratic national committee, in his
speech in St. Louis in August last,
stated that silver as an i4'-ue was not
dead, and wo'jld not be until the dem
ocratic party declared it so. He stat
ed that the democratic fight would be
made at this election on this issue, and
would be continued as long as the dem
ocratic party saw fit. With the official
head of the democratic committee
thus declaring the issue for this cam
paign, it remains for the people again
to show by their votes whether silver
is really an issue in national affairs or
not."—X. Y. Tribune.
"Coin" Harvey Get* m Job.
"Coin" Ilarvey, the newly-appointed
manager of the free and unlimited sil
ver coinagists, says in his first an
nouncement: "My first work will be
the raising of money to carry on the
cause in which we have enlisted.
Where shall we get the money?" lie*
added: "From the people, I suppose."
But he knows that the millionaire sil
ver kings' trust will supply all the
money that he will need. The mil
lionaire silver kings' trust knows that
its members would receive all the ben
efits that would result from free sil
ver coinage, and that free coinage
would increase their profits at least
1,000 per cent, per day. The people
of the United States have lost more
labor, money and business by the sil
ver kings* trust than by all the other
trusts combined, and it is still more
dangerous than all other trusts and
calamities. While "Coin" Harvey is
getting "the money" from the silver
kings' trust every American should
be doing everything within his power
to vote that trust to death in this
year's election.—lowa State Register.
During the month of September
the gold coin and bullion in the treas
ury w ere increased by $25.3i:t.938, a sum
irore than one-quarter as large as that
which the Cleveland administration
moved heaven and earth to keep as a
reserve. This increase was not the re
sult of artificial stimulation, but came
as the natural result of the nation's
prosperity. If the "endless chain" has
been in operation lately it has very evi
dently run just the opposite way to the
direction it took when Cleveland and
Carlisle were conducting their negotia
tions with bond syndicates.—Troy
democratic state convention
of New Jersey refused by a decisive
vote to indorse the Chicago platform.
Xew Jersey democrats thus put them
selves in the same column with their
brethren of other eastern states in re
pudiating free silver.—Chi .'ago Times-
HARVEY AS MANAGZR.
Tlie Ureal i:\ponent of Cheap Money
Getn a Chance to Work
"Coin" Harvey's appointment as
"manager of the silver democratic
party" does not meet with that chorus
of joy from the party generally that
might have been expected. The local
lenders particularly do not approve,
and it dazes them as much as the "or
phan dodger" did. That "dodger" con
tained nothing but what they professed
to believe and to which they had over
and over set their hands, but they nev
ertheless repudiated it because it was
Xow they have an official act by the
very highest moguls of the party that
compels them to swallow the "dodger,"
and they growl again. Curses not loud
but deep penetrate tiieir discourse, for.
as one of the candidates said: "Here
we have been straining every nerve to
get the gold democrats into line and
have succeeded, and along comes this
blunder and promises to upset every
"There is only one thing more needed
to put us in prime condition for de
feat," said another, in a vein of satire.
"We ought to have Gen. Coxey appoint
ed assistant general manager." Har
vey and Coxey would make a very at
tractive and stylish team, and the way
they would pull subscriptions out of
the pockets of the gold democrats
would be a great instruction to all po
Still more important considerations,
however, seem to puzzle the heads of
some of the local silver democrats.
They themselves are "no slouches"—to
use their own elegant style of speech—
at political finance, but there are two
things about this move they would
like to understand. How does it come
that Harvey was all cocked and primed
<o spring his plnn of financiering the
party at the very moment he was noti
fied of his appointment; and second,
and most important, what is going to
be his "rake off?" He is laying plans to
raise $2,000,000 in the next two years,
and if ten per cent, of it—a verj- mod
erate compensation, indeed—goes into
his own pocket, 1 here are envious demo
crats who think he has a pretty soft
thing, and he will have if he raises the
There are those, too, who think, and
with some reason, that the dollar sub
scription business is only a cheap blind,
and the money w ill come, if it comes at
all. from the men who produce silver
nnd are financially interested in itsfree
and unlimited coinage. Xow that we
have a bankruptcy law. it seems clear
enough that nobody wants even cheap
silver with which to pay his debts, so
that none but silver mine owners are
really concerned about free coinage.
As for the rank and file of the demo
cratic party, why should they give a
dollar a month to a cause which if suc
cessful would cut all their remaining
dollars in two?
In the end it w ill be the silver mine
owners who will have to come down
with the dust, and from this point of
view those local democrats are right in
thinking Mr. Harvey has a particular
ly good thing.—Chicago Times-Herald.
TESTIMONY OF A DEMOCRAT.
I nprejudiced Evidence n» to the
Treatment of I ncle Sam'n
The testimony given before the war
investigating committee at Washing
ton by Gen. "Fighting Joe" Wheeler is
a complete refutation of the charges
made by the yellow journals and dem
ocratic papers that have been manu
facturing charges for the sake of cre
ating sensations and political ammu
nition. Coming from a rock-ribbed
democrat—and one of the southern
kind that seem to have their democ
racy bred in the bone at that—coming
from the man who was a famous leader
of the confederate cavalry in the civil
war and who gallantly led the cavalry
division of the United States troops at
Santiago, and coming from a man who
was born and raised a fighter and a sol
dier, it can scai cely be said by the dem
ocratic press that his testimony is
"whitewash." His evidence may be
summarized as follows:
"At Santiago—Except In a few Instances

sions this was due to the fact that the men
going into action threw away their rations

Chicago, fk-t. 20.—One brief gleam of
sunshine has been thrown upon the
ceremonies of the peace jubilee, it
was a fleeting, short-lived burst of
third-classsunshine, but it fell upon the
president's reviewing stand just as the
head of the great jubilee parade was
approaching - , and the dense crowd
which lined the streets accepted it as
an augury of better things and cheer
eel lustily, but before they were half
through with their shouts the little
shudder of light was gone and the
cold, dark, dismal weather that from
the first has dampened the jubilee fes
tivities, was on again.
Chicago has seen many parades
greater than that of Wednesday, but
she never lias seen one that pleased its
people better, nor has there ever been
a parade in this city which has been
witnessed by so many people. There
were more stands, anel larger stands
erected for sight-seers than have ever
been seen here before. All were filled
to the utmost. Xotwithstanding the
elaborate arrangements of the police
department, the banishing of every
street ear and vehicle of every descrip
tion from the down town streets, in
order that the crowd might have an
unobstructed way, there were times
when the crowd was 100 great for the
police to handle anel at many places
the crush at times was dangerous.
The greetings extendeel to President
MeKinicy were enthusiastic in the ex
treme*. as were the plaudits showereel
upon Gen. Miles anel Gen. Shaffer as
they passed through the streets. The
president in his carriage was sur
rounded by members of the Chicago
Hussars formed in square, and de

In the reviewing stand with the
president were Gen. Miles, Gen. Shaf
ter, both in full uniform; Gov. Tan
ner, Mayor Harrison and Chairman
Truax, of the jubilee committee.
The advance <»f the parade after the
presidential escorts had wheeled out
of the line- of march was given to the
veterans of the Grand Army, who
were present in great numbers.
He-hind the veterans came numerous
civil societies, rank after rank until it
seemed as though they would never
end. Their gay uniforms anel their
many banners of many hues, stripes
and sizes made a brilliant and glowing

Jacksonville, Fin., Oct. 20.—The war
investigating commission examined a
large number of regimental and other
officers yesterday. One of the most
outspoken witnesses of the day was
Dr. Frye, of the Third division hos
pital. lie condemned some of the
methods in vogue in the hospitals anel
said that in many cases the contract
physicians and members of the hos
pital corps were incompetent.
Dr. Frye expressed the opinion that
in several instances convalescents had
which he was connected before they
were sufficiently aelvanceel to permit
them togo in safety. lie thought these
instances were due to insufficient su
pervision, to ignorance of physicians
and to a desire to clear the wards for
new patients. He spoke in very un
complimentary terms eif the men in
the hospital corps, saying they had
been picked up at random over the
country and were "generally-a scabby
looking lot." not fit to adorn any walk
of life. He also spoke depreciatingly
of the contract surgeons, saying he
woulel not he willing to trust his fam
ily or friends to 50 per cent, of them.
Col. Dows, of the Forty-ninth lowa,
followed Dr. Frye. and he was in turn
followed by various members of his
regiment. Col Dows said there hael
been no deficiency in the commissary
supplies. Speaking of the medical
supplies. Col. Dows said a physician
whom Gov. Shaw hael sent to the
camp had spoken with surprise e>f the
variety and quality of the medicine
and medical appliances on hand.
