come, nnil they would not be under the
necessity of adopting extraordinary
means to force the presidential issue to
the front. They could afford to await
the test of eontidi'iice at whatever. stage
of the proceedings it would come. Ac

Thoy take the ground that the conVi ti
tions knew the difference between in
dorsement and instructions, and they
propose to act accordingly. They do
not assume that Cullom Is favored.
The combined Cullom, and ant I-McKinley
forces assort that an actual ma
jority of the delegates having been
elected without Instructions their
course, will govern in tho convention,
but In their hearts they know that a
portion of these unlnstructed delegates

they may be able to hold the convention

the limit of their ability. It Is all they

M'KINLKY'S FOOI..1SL FRIENDS.
Major McKlnley's managers have
mapped out a scheme which will force
a good many s-ipporters of McKinley
in antagonism in tht. preliminary
skirmishing. They piopn to capture
the organization of the convention for
the alleged purpose of securing fair
play and preventing mehlite methods
from stilling the voice of the peot'le.
They announce that they wll1 take the
orsarl-ctlon out of the hands of John
R. Tanner and his friends. Instruct the
delegates-at-large, elect their own men
for those places and then let the con
vention attend to whatever business It
This plan Is bad political tactics. The
convention is called for the primary
purpose of nominating a state ticket.
Custom and the otllclal call put this
ahedd o" the choice of deiegates-ut-large.
Tho candidates for the various
state oflice want their own fate set
tled before going Into national affairs.
While they extremely dlrllke doing any
thing that seems to run counter to the
McKinley sentiment, self-preservation
Is the first law with them, and their
Influence will be thrown against pro
jecting the presidential question into
the foreground .
The attempted organization is taken
by John R. Tanner as an open attack
on himself. He is justified li this lxisi-
tlon. because some of the McKinley
leHtlcrd deTlHTtThe IS opposing -Mclvln-
ley, and they propose ri take no
chances. Tills is in a measure true.
Tanner Is with the Chicago organiza
tion and the party leaders ol the stute
In opposing Instructions on general
principles. Then every consideration of
political friendship makes him favor
Cullom. And f Colluni can't be nom
inated, he Is for Allison. Again, If It
should come down to u choice between
Reed and McKinley he would be likely
to turn to Reed. While his position on
the presidential question has been
pretty well understood, it has not kept
him from gathering In the delegates.
He has fully 1,000, probably) more. Noth
ing can beat his nomination.
Tanner has passed the word along
the line that he wants the usual prac
tice followed, the candidates for state
officers nominated and the presidential
Issue taken up In Its proper place.
Moreover, he objects positively and
strenuously to a McKinley. oigclza
tlon of un Illinois state convention He
tells his friends that the Issue has I n
forced on him. and he Is going to meet
it. He assures them that every dele
gate will have the fullest opportunity
to debate and vote on Instructing the
delegates-at-lurge. but that matter
must come up in its regular order.
TANXER WILL OUQANIZK IT.
Under these circumstances it is not
difficult to guess that the organization
of the convention will be a Tanner and
not a McKinley one. A large number
of delegates who will ultimately vote
for McKinley Instructions will support
a Tanner organization of the conven
tion. The band wagon crowd Is also
likely to be with hlni. Thero may be
doubt about McKinley being president.
There Is none about Tanner being gov
ernor of Illinois. And the governor
ship comes a little closer to them than
Ex-Congressman George E. Adams
and others of McKlnley's conservative
supporters In the state have tried to
moderate the seal of the radicals who
are at the head of the movement. They
would be willing to rest everything on
a square vote of instructions, but their
advice has been thus far disregarded.
VV. W. Tracy, ex-president of the Re-
publican league; C. W, Raymond, pres
ident of the State league, and General
jonn Mcxuita, receiver or the whisky
trust, are Insisting on a radical policy,
find they have gone too far to right
about. A change in tactics now would
hurt them almost as much us to go
ahead 'and be beaen. So It is quite
probable that in the preliminary strug
gles of the Illinois convention McKin
ley will meet with reverses. Rut this
should not be accepted a conclusive
on the tlnal verdict. Senator Cullom.
Candidate Tanner and Congressman
Lorlmer and the leaders of the Chicago
organization think they are going to
prevent Instructions, yet the margin Is
too narrow for them to put too much
trust in the mistukes of the major's
supporters. The whole country under
stands the bearing of the result on. the
St. Louis convention. If McKinley In
structions are beaten In Illinois the
combination may take fresh courage.
Senator Allison has ptrhnps a more di
rect interest than the other candidates,
because, next to Cullmn. most of tho
uulnstrutted delegates are for him.

AN IXDC I'EXDEXT COUNTRY
By the Dcmonotuotlon of Silver Mexican
People Have Been Indoeed to Do
Their Own Mauufaeturiag-.Monc
and Industries Kept at Uone.
Washington, April 27. Representa
tive Newlands, of Nevada, is endeav
oring to have the ways and means
committee Inquire what effect the dif
ference of exchange between gold
standard and silver standard countries
has upon the agricultural and manu
facturing industries of the I'nlted
States and report by bill or otherwise.
In this connection he requested Mr.
Alex R. Shepherd, who has lived in
Mexico since 1CS0, to give his vclews on
the economic, conditions of that coun
try as he found them while its finan
cial .policy rested upon a silver basis.
Today he received the following reply:
"I have been u resident of Mexico
since 1SS0. When I first went there the
ratio between silver and gold was lOVi
to 1. The first exchange I bought was
at the rate of 15 per cent, in coin silver
on a New York draft. Since then, ow
ing to the demonetization of silver,
ninny changes have occurred In the rate
of exchange. During the famine which
existed the whole period from ISSll to
1!I3. when two-thirds of ull the grain
used for food in Mexico was bought
from the nlted States, the rates of ex
change tanged from SO to 95 ior cent,
abd at times went as high as 100. Not
withstanding this, Mexico met all her
obligations, paid all her Interest and
suffered less than any other country.
"The present condition of the silver
market is leading the Mexican people
to doing their own manufacturing. As
un Instance of this. I may cite Chihau
hua as an example. An Iron foundry
and machine shop was established there
some time ago with Itio.oOO capital for
the purpose of manufacturing the min

thero was a large and growing demand
In that vicinity and which was former

success of this venture may be realized

"Numerous other enterprises have
been established and are in contempla

emnloynient to Mexican
artisans anil laborers, and, what Is
equally Important, serving to keep
Mexican money In Mexico, for the fruit
of all these forms of industry repre
sent the necessities for which Mexico
has hitherto been dependent on this
country and Europe. The conditions in
Chihuahua are truer of the more ad-
vaneed portions of Mexico and the de
sources. The $5,000,000 capital for the
undertaking has been furnished by
New York parties.
"The conditions of the people have
Improved co-relatlvely with the devel
opment of the country. The district of
El Puerte which furnishes the part of
the mountains In which mines are li
cated, has doubled in population In the
post fifteen years, and its productive
capacity correspondingly increased.
Formerly the Peon system of labor
which prevailed all Mexico was the rule
In El Puerte. Now the scarcity of
workmen Is so great that almost every
thing Is xirodticed on shares and It Is
almost impossible to raise a crop unless
the workmen are interested In it
INSTANCE OF PROGRESS.
Another Instance may be recited
showing the wonderful progress of
northwest Mexico. When the Mexican
Central railroad was first opened it was
thought that Mie northern part of It
would be unremuneratlve. The open
in.T nf mine and the development of
agriculture along this portion, however.
has made It one of the most profitable
sections of the road.
Shortly before my departure I was
conversing with a very intelligent Mex
ican banker. He declared that he want

gold to be maintained us it enabled the
Mexicans to keep their money In their
own country. Other Mexicans finan
ciers with whom I have talked hold the

bank failures since I have resided there.
The Mexican banks are required to keep
one-third of their circulation In silver

dollars In return for It In any part of
