The Kenoral Inuiresslim seems to be

An Untenable Position
We do not eoniitr In tin- Wllkes
Harre Hei-ord's nlnumt dally Insinua
tions that the Pennsylvania delegates
who jiropose to vote for Senator Quay
if he shall be a t iindldate at St. I.ouln
liave been either bullied or cujoleil into
this course. I,es than thiw month!
HKO the Itei ord Itself ut'Ki d that the
Pennsylvania delegation ac eord to the
senator tit least u complimentary vote.
Nothing has oeetirred in tin- interval
to Justify the withdrawal of that siik
Kestlon. The mere fact that Major Me
Klnley seems to be a sure winner does
not lessen the propriety of Pennsyl
vania rusting Its ballot for a Pennsyl
vania eundldate. The eonipliment In
volved In such a course will be none
the less a compliment for fuilliiR to
effect the Peniisylvanian's nomination.
The delegation which will represent
this commonwealth in next month's
national convention is composed for the
greater part of honest, reputable and
representative men. J Is an Insult to
their manliness to chaw thai they
have been forced to Indorse the presi
dential candidacy of Senator Quay.
I n.11,1,, ii , ,!.,! i 1 1. ,n !',.! .l!il,,i Mi-Kill-
ley does not call for such a line of ar
gument. Many of the delegates who
will vote for Ouay if he shall remain
n candidate are as staunch friends of
the Cu u lull candidate as he has In
Pennsylvania, but they do not recojr
iilze that there is uny necessity for
thetn to Induce in n mad scrumble for
n place In the McKlnley procession.
When Pennsylvania's cuudidate retires,
they will be for McKlnley. I'titll then
they will stand bv Quay, Irrespective
of the fact that McKlnley Is likely to be
the nominee. It would be an exreedltiB
lv 'hlti kind of loyalty which would
klrike colurs and desert because rumor
bad it that the oopositlon was likely
to prove victorious.
If the situation were reversed, and
Quay were to seem (In- sure winner ut
St. Louisa, the Keeord. to be consistent
with Its present attitude, would have
to cast insinuations on every Ohio dele
gate who would not turn back on Mc
Klnley and make a precipitate rush for
the Quay band wagon. Yet it bus been
Just such treachery and double deul
Ing In past conventions which has
brought the uhio delegation into stand
ing disrepute. No holiest candidate
Would want the support of such turn
coats. Major McKinlcy's candidacy is
not in such straits that It will seek to
profit at St. I.ouIh by deliberate treach
ery to Quay.
Tt Is estimated that there rnv 4.000,000
Mcycle riders in the United States who
spend each year In carlnpr for their
wheels und on excursions S.'iK'.noO.OOO.
And yet the demand for new wheels
outruns the supply. The bicycle craze
Is evidently no Joke.
High Time for Emphatic Action.
Kvents are happening In a manner
likely to make it Imperative for con
Rress, before It adjourns, to imt ihe
question dlrpctly before President
Cleveland whether he? will or will not
Issue a proclamation recosnlzlnfr the
Cuban Insurgents as belligerents. " The
remark at Madrid Tuesday of ex-Pre-niler
Sagosta that he "hoped Mr. Cleve
land would not accord belligerent rights
to rebela who have not government with'
a llxed ilace,of residence and who do
not hold a fortified position" clearly
indicates the anxiety with which Spain
views the attitude of the United States
in this matter, and lends emphasis to
the contention that the obstinacy of
the present executive in blocking the
declared tviBh of the American people
must not much, longer be permitted to
hold out false hope to Spanish tyranny.
It has ceased to be material whether
the Cubans have a staUonary seat of
government or whetherthey hold a
fortified position. The fact they hav'
for more than a year withstood the
flower of the Spanish army and have
driven both Camios and Weyler slowly
but steadily backward until they now
hold lit practical possession more than
nine-tenths of the island is a demon
stration of belligerency that overmas
ters technical quibbles.
It must by this time Ik manifest to
congress, as it Is to the people, that the
further management of this Important
question cannot with safety be entrust
ed to Orpver Cleveland. ." His . position
with reference to .It is already one of
practical Insubordination. ; He has
Ignored the mandate of the natldn. He
has deliberately and almost defiantly
lent his help to the Spanish cause. He
Imply, cannot be trusted In the Interval
following ongresa adjournment. This
Keeins a harsh thing to have to say of un
American president, but is the saying
i t It not made necessary by Mr. lleve
land's own actions? If we except the
J one inexplicable Yenesut-lan Incident,
j there has not been a moment In his
upan. y nf the presidential chair when
he has been, as cn ollieial, responsive
to the patiiotie sentiment of the peo
ple or anxious to execute the popular
will. For congress to adjourn without
having" taken from him the itower fur
ther to violate the demands of justice
toward Cuba and without having made
plain to S::aiu that she cannot with
impunity, under a reliance u:on her
pull witli (ievdand. seize American cit
izens and u:ou drumhead trial sum
marily condemn them to death, would
lie u gross breach of duty concerning
which public iudigiuitloii would be swift
to manifest ItseK.
Fortunately the opportunity for ac
tion is near to hand. Senator Morgan
sometime ugo took the wise precaution
to Introduce in the senate a joint reso
lution of recognition of Cuban belliger
ency. Action upon this resolution was
delayed pending the manifestation by
the president of an Inclination to do his
duty without compulsion. Since that
moment, his studied indifference to duty
has fully justified the waiving of fur
ther ceremony. Congress may now w ith
entire iH'opriety proced to the adop
tion of the Morgan Joint resolution.
This resolution, unlike the previous or
concurrent one, calls for executive ac
tion. If the president should sign it,
belligerency would then become a fact.
If he should veto it, congress could
and would intss it over his veto, and
belligerency Would likewise become a
fact. It will be seen that congress now
has the r-ins in its own hands. The
stubborn president Is practically help
less. Is It not, therefore, due to the
American eople, who have so eloquent
ly manifested their sympathy for
Cuba's cause, and to congress itself,
which by almost a unanimous vote has
requested the president to take action
which will strengthen Cuba's position,
that the Morgan joint resolution should
now be adopted and the wretched farce
of executive plgheudedness ended once
and for all?

l.each, having decided to cast his lot
wPli the new untl-Ouay ring in Phila

will take several strong alllduvits to

An Opportune Suggestion.
The Kochester'Ucmoerat and Chroni
cle, ulthougli known throughout New
York stati- us a staunch Plutt paper,
rises superior to factional trammels In
the matter of Piatt's vicious and un
provoked attack on ex-tlovernor Mc
Klnley, anil leads the Tioga leader a
sharp lesson in political deportment.
"There ure," it remarks, "a good many
dust-clouds in the present Humiliating
campaign. The Kepublican party oc
cupies a position so extraordinarily
sttong that many of Its members seem
to have taken advantage of the situa
tion to perpetrate a great Variety of
editorial, oratorical, conversational and
epistolary exlravuguiizas. Some of the
friends of the presidential candidates
are especially effusive in this respect,
their faith in a Kepublican victory ap
pealing to convince them that they
can safely disregard all ordinary rules
of Udence und wisdom and foresight
which should govern u party on the eve
of a great national campaign. Two ex
amples of this foolishness may be cited.
Slany of the special advocates of Me
Klnley have taken an overbearing und
Intolerant position loward Republicans
who are favorable to any other candi
date, while some of the friends of other
aspirants have made senseless und un
founded attacks on McKlnley's finan
cial views. The result will be that
quite u number of Republicans, after
the nomination Js made, will have em
barrassing utterances thrown in their
faces und will be unable to deny having
said things that they ought to be sorry
The Rochester paper deems it oppor
tune for Republicans to get out of the
fog of personal attacks and to look ut
the political situation broadly and fair
ly, from an exalted standpoint. To that
end it submits for' public consideration
six facts which ure both well stated
und fundamentally true, namely:
1. The Republican parly is for such tariff
protection to home iiulustries us will re
strict the competition of cheap labor
aiii'oatl. keep uur workshops busy, give
steady unci remunerative employment tu
American wage-earners, anil Infuse life
into all depHitineiits of our trade, rum
rneree, business and Industry.
2. The Republican party is for a revenue
that will pay the running expenses of the
government and provide funds for budd
ing up national defenses, and Is ugulnst
deliclencles that have to be met by bund
3. The Republican party Is for strict f n
tegriiy In oSr monetary system, .for no 's
ue of currency that run in uny event fall
below the gold stundurd, und against tile
free coinage of silver.
4. The Repiilillcun party will not consent
to the destruction of the grceiibariis and
the establishment of state banks of iss'ie,
merely to serve Democracy's desire to con
ceal the real cause of treasury troubles
that cause being the deficiency-producing
f. The Republican party stands pledged,
when again intrusted with power, to
muke good Its previous record of Intelli
gent and efllcicnt management of econom
ic and llnanelal iilTuirs.
fl. The Kepublican .party Is for a firm
and illgnlllecl foreign policy, for active
sympathy with oppressed peoples strug
gling for liberty, for the Monroe doctrine,
and for n maintenance of the nation's
honor and rights at all places and under
This condensation 1f the Issues might
well be adopted at S. Louis as the Re
publican platform. It covers the vital
points of Republic an doctrine and
leaves no loopholes for Democratic at
tack. No doubt It Is impossible wholly
to eliminate Jobbery and log-rolling
from nominating campaigns. The men
who are In politics for selfish reasons
will have their say: will scheme, and
plan and manipulate regardless of pub
lic disfavor. lint a good many Republi
cans who look at party politics from the
standpoint of the public welfare are
getting quite tired of the unnecessary
and seemingly useless clamor at pres
ent directed by certain party leaders
against the probable standard bearer in
the coming campaign; und would be
glad to see those leaders who yet care
anything for public; opinion draw out of
the dirty business of trying to preju
dice the party's own rase next fall.
The esteemed Troy Times believes
Morton should 'get out of McKlnley's
way, but first wants the Ohio candidate
to F:eak out on the money question.
The lust hope ir Ihe antl-McKlnleyltey,
apparently. Is to try to trip him on the
money question. We fancy that the
Canton candidate is too wary a man to
walk with open eyes into this obvious
Mr. Mugee's brai-e of Pittsburg papers
are having lots of fun with Senutor
Quay these days; yet there Isn't much
doubt us to who will laugh last.
One Bill Which is Doomed.
Uepresenlatlve Sherman, of New
York, has tried to gtt congress to pass
un act repeullug that part of the inter
stute coinmoroe 'law which subject.
convicted railway officials to Imprison
ment. The railroad men. it seems, are
willing to pay a line when caught vio
lating luw. Thty ran charge tines up
to the exixlise account und get their
money back by an cxtru squeeze of the
dear lieople. Hut going to jail has a
very plcblun aspect. The magnates of
the rail do not relish prison honors a
little bit. Hence the Sherman bill to
constitute them a privileged class.
This interesting bill came near creep
ing through rongrcss unnoticed. It
may have had Its pathway smoothed
und It may not. At uny event, it wus
past the tliree-quurter post when first
spotted. But now that the public hus
got Its tye on the measure there can
be very little doubt that it will not live
to reach the wire. The Impression pre
vails that railway ollicials who violate
law and are caught und convicted have
no better light to be let down easily
than uny other class of citizens. The
fact that they have Intluentlal lobbies
at work ut Washington and number
among their obedient servants a con
siderable percentage of pliant congress
men is probably the only reason why
the idea was ever hazarded that they
should be presented by congress with a
special bill of exemption.
In this connection It is refreshing to
learn that the United States Supreme
court has Just refused to grant a re
heating of the Urown case. This
clinches the right of the government
to make un effectual susiervislon of In
terstate commerce. The ITnlted States
Supreme court Is evidently constructed
upon a dliTcta-nt mental pattern from
that of the present representative In
congress of the I'tlca, N. Y., district.
Dlspatihes from Madrid leave no

of the opposition to the present minis
try, unci probably the ablest living
Spunlard, has. In his country's etner
gency.deslstard from the role of politi

this uction all decent men will honor
him. We in America believe that, Spain
Is wrong In her attitude toward Cuba;
and Unit no greater misfortune could
huppeu to civilization than to have the
Cuban revolution fail. ' At the same
time, there Is no patriotic American"
who can withhold his admiration from
tlie Spaniard who stands by his coun

U0LD IX THE ARTS.
From the Chicago News.
The quantity of the precious metal used
In the arts and sciences has been a prob
lem that financial students and stati:
tlciaiiH have found Impossible of solution.
While the quantity and value of the gold
and silver produced annually can be as
certained with u good diail of exactness,
Ihe percentage of each that goes into and
permanently remains money bullies all ex.
act calculation. R Is owing to this fact
almost alone that lliianclal writers vary
so widely In their conclusions when esti
mates of the amount of the circulating me
U I ill n In unv country is the subject of ills
cusslon. Silver being the more abundant
and cheaper metal it Is not so important
to be exact, as is Ihe case when gold is in
question. The chief difficulty In the way
of getting at the exact quantity of gold
that tin. Is Its way into other uses thuti i.s
money is the fact that most of it so used
Is taken from the colnuge dlra-ci. The gov.
eminent mint stamp is un indlspiituble evi
dence of the tlin ness of the metal, while
In the case of bullion the fineness Is not
so well ultested. and In this way a pre
mium is offered for taking the coined
metal unci converting it to the use of the
urts und sciences.
The most eminent statisticians of th
worid have wrestled with fills problem
and the dillleultles It presents are abun
dantly attested by the wide variation In
their conclusions. Dr. Soetbeer, one of
the ablest Investigators of the century,
estimated that the annual consumption of
gold used In the urts wus $i,0OU,unu worth,
which was somewhat over omhslf of h
total output of gold In the world during
the period between 1!7S und ISSj. Subse
quent Investigations led him to the con
clusion that that estimate was very much
loo small, but he Is fraiik enough to say
that all such stlmutes are Utile, better
than mure guesses. In his lata-st work,
written in IS'.HI, Just previous to his death,
he said: "One could not demonstrntn by
figures the Incorrectness of the hypothe
sis that In recent years the industrial use
of gold, together with the needs of orien
tal countries and for private hoards, had
materially arrested the Increase of the
monetary stuck and hud very probubly lib.
snrbed the unniial production of the
metal: but proofs ure equally Incklng to
support the contrary hypothesis." This
shows that Dr. Soiibcer himself regard
ed all suc h I'stlmutes as largely hypotheti
cal. Kut It must be admitted that his cal
culations have been very generally ac
cepted. Lord Pluyfnlr, now a member of the
British Hold Defense association, declared
In u speech delivered In the house of -commons
in 1MKI that "the consumption of gold
in the arts amounted to at least 7" per cent,
of the utimiul production for the veur lssn,
which was S12;l,iMm,tiiW." A still more ex.
tretne estimate Is that of Mr. ajiftln, a
much-nuoted mild mononietullist. who In
an article In the Nineteenth Century maga
zine in i, sunt "tne amount of gold
now regularly absorbed for mere non
monetary purposes appeors almost equal
to the entlro annual supply." At that
time the niiiiu-cl gold product of the world
was $11.000.(1011. Since then the annual
product has largely Increased, until it wja
last year In excess of $a,iwo.O!W, Whetn-r
the cujcnmptlon of gold for iioii-mone-tury
purposes hus kept even puce with
the Increased production Is nnivrtuln. It
will be seen what a wide difference the-n
Is between the caclilutlons of Soetbeer und
lilllln. According to th former about
per cent, of the present gold product Is
used In the arts und sciences, while accord
ing to the latter about W per cent. Is so
niverteai. Hetween these extremes diner,
ent writers take such figures as shall
best subserve the purposs lor which they
