JAY COOKE TALKS
Would Like to Drive Gold Bugs From
BIT WILL VOTE FOR McKINIEY
The Veteran Finnuvier Foiuts out the
KviU of the Demonetization of Sil
ver and Hopes that llelief May
Come from the Kepublicnn Party.
. Philadelphia. July 14. Jay Cooke, the
veteran financier, who successfully
placed $7,0u0,000 of government bonds
during the civil war, was Interviewed
today on the money question.
"What Is your opinion on free silver?"
was the first yuestlon asked.
'The opposition to the free coinage of
silver," he replied, "Is a crime, a miser
able crazy notion. If I had the doing
of It there would be no room for a gold
bug In the country. The single gold
stamlurd would ruin this country, posi
tively ruin It. I have seen In my time
stiver superior In value to gold, and its
depreciation has been caused by Its de
monetization. The silver dollar was the
unit of value until 1S73. when there was
a 3 per cent, premium on the metal. At
that time the value of silver was threw
per cent, more than that of gold."
"What effect did this have on the
"There was no bullion presented for
coinage except that which the govern
ment was compelled to buy to furnish
subsidiary coin. That had been adul
terated." Mr. Cooke then picked up a book and
said: "Let me read you what Mr. Car
lisle said In 1S78 before he was allied to
Cleveland and the gold bugs.
" 'According to my view of the sub
ject.' says Mr. Carlisle, "the conspiracy
which seems to have been formed In.
this country and Euroiie to destroy by
legislatlon or otherwise half of themetal
money of the world Is the most gigantic
crime of this or any other age. The
consummation of such a scheme would
ultimately entail more misery on the
human race thun any war. pestilence
anil fn in I Mi' that cvnr occurred."
"What more could you want than
that?" said Mr. Cooke. "It was true
then, it Is true now," he said, emphat
ically, shaking his forefinger on the re
Continuing, lie read from Carlisle:
"The absolute and instant destruction
of half the movable property of the
world, Including horses, ships, rail
roads and all other appliances fur com
merce, would not produce anything like
the prodigious distress and disorgan
ization of society that must result from
the annihilation of one-half of the metal
money of the world."
CARLISLE WAS CORRECT.
"These remarks of Carlisle were made
on Feb. 21, 1S7S." said Mr. Cooke, "and
they are perfectly correct. Why Is this
so? Why has it come to pass? We
already have begun to get Us bad re
sults, and unless It is righted promptly
the calamity will be great. In the tlrst
place, the silliness of this great nation,
with its vast Industries, is nothing less
than remarkable In refusing to make
silver the equal In monetary Influence
to gold. There would have been none
of the disturbances that have lately
happened but for the break In silver."
"How do you figure that out?"
"Because we are growing and have
been growing rapidly and we need all
we can get as a basis of value. We
need both gold and sliver. The govern
ment, tlie business credit, both are based
on their metallic ability to pay. The
most terrible thing of all was In 187:t,
when silver was demonetized, which
was done under a delusion. You will
find that most of the senators and rep
resentatives did not dream that they
were ubout to demonetize silver. They
had no such desire. Then. Instead of
righting the mistake, they pussed the
Bland bill. They were to buy $4,000,000
of bullion a mouth. They always bought
only $2,000,000 worth a month. Kvery
thlng was done to keep down silver.
The whole history of It Is vile ami out
rageous. Just think of the fearful dan
ger the farmers stand In. If they knew
it they would rise In their might and
sweep away those devilish politician
"But. Mr. Cooke, In case of free coin
age, what about the 63 rent ilollar?'"
"That's all humbug," he replied.
"Wasn't a silver dollar worth $1.03 be
fore they demonetized silver? as I
have said, I have seen a time when sil
ver was worth more than gold. At the
time of the enormous California out
puts of gold It was feared that that
inetal would be placed In the Same
position that silver Is in now."
"The world's onward march Is rapid.
II gold shall be the only basts of ex
change, the progress must stop. We
must have more money to oil the ma
chine of exchange. 1 believe we must
get back to bimetallism before we reach
Then you will vote for Bryan and
Bewail?" said the reporter.
"No, I will vote for McKinley with
the hope that he and the Republican
party will see their error of the gold
standard and Immediately put silver
back In the place It belongs."

Canton, July 14. A good many per
son who were present at the Chicago
convention have been In Canton since
Saturday, but the first man who was a
delegate came this afternoon. He Is
E. T. Cooper, of Delaware, and he says
he Is going to vote for McKinley ami
sound money. "The convention had
lost Its head and was In a Irresponsi
ble condition," said Mr. Cooper, "when
it adopted the platform. I have been
through the west some, and the free
silver sentiment Is strong there, but t
believe It has reached Its highest point
In development and that from this time
It will dec-line In power and effective

the reception of the large delegation of
Cleveland women who are coming here

Several hundred visitors are expected.
They will be met at the station upon
i ,ir arrival at 11 o'clock in the raorn-

BOY ORATOR TALKS,
Speech of Mr. Bryan at Centralis
Given Opinions on the Money Ques
tion Without Reserve.
Centralla, 111.. July 14. The reception
In city hall purlt was not concluded be
fore there were many cries for Mr.
Bryan, and in response the candidate
mounted an improvised stand. He
made an address strongly reminiscent
In passion and vigor of his famous
speech In Chicago last Tuesday. He
Ladles and Uentlemen: I did not come
to make a speech. The campaign is hai il
ly open yet, but I came back to Minion
county to look after some business which
had to be attended to before I return to
my Nebraska home, but 1 was glad to ra
celve an invitation to spend several hours
with my relatives in this city, and while
hero to meet again the citizens whom I
have met before.
V enter upou a memorable campaign
ami the Isues are being- drawn fur the con
test. The two parties described as the
two great parties have adopted their plat
form and have named their candidates fur
president and vice president and In a short
time the campaign will be opened fully
and you will be making up your minds as
to which platform and as to which ticket
you will support. I trust the Issues In
volved In this campaign will be clearly
understood and carefully studied. Par
ties are not made to be worshipped, they
are merely the Instruments by which we
serve our country. People are made not
for parties, but the parties are made lor
the people and the parties can only claim
the support of the people when these par
ties are efficient Instruments In the hands
of the people, accomplishing good. An.
those who are called upon to vote have
the right to consider the platform utter
ances and the policies advocated by the
various parties as well as the candidates
who are nominated. In this campaign I
believe there will be less of personalities
and more of principle than In any enm
pah;n which we have seen In recent years.
The people have before them two great
public questions. eW must not expect
that this platform will contain all you de
sire. No thinking person finds in any plat
form an expression of everything which
he believes, nor must you expect that any
platform would be free from some ob
jection. And in Iths campaign It Is de
cided by all parties that the Import'.int
Issue Is the money question. It matters
not whether you believe In the restoration
of sliver or in the gold standard, you must
admit thai he settlement of the money
question is of the flist and greatest Im
portance, one that when settled leave,
nothing else to be considered On the
money question the two great parties
have taken directly opposite positions to
each other. Four years ago tlie position
tnken by the Republican u ml Democratic
parties were almost identical. The Re
publican party said the American people,
are for bimetallism ami the Denlofraf
party was holding to the use of gold an 1
silver as the standard money of the i-oun-try.
Thus you pee that both I'miiles dt
clared for gold and silver as the money
of our country: Four yeorf, have passv.l
since that platform was written and Uios
four years have been full of momentous
happenings, but as this campaign-, au.-.
proached the great parties lined them
selves up for the tight. The aonventlon
adopted the platform, which Is liT-riirect
opposition to the platform adopted at HC
Louis. The St. Louis convention declared
for the maintenance of the gold standard,
until something else could be done In the
near future. The Republican platform did
not promise any complete money system.
We declared that the silver dollar should
be full egnl tender for nil debts, public
and private, and that such legislation
should be enaried that is neeesary to pre
vent for the future the demonetization of
any legal tender.
The platform declared that the govern,
ment should have the right to redeem Its
obligations In either gold or silver. If I
mistake not. the patriotism of the peo
ple, who have never been appealed to In
vain, there can be but one Issue In this
campaign and but one republic. Why
discuss questions if we haven'e the power
to decide them? Rut 1 want to impress
upon your minds two things. I want o
ask two questions. They are questions
that will be asked over and over again In
this campaign. They are questions we
will be asked with ever Increasing em.
phHSM These two questions are these: If
the gold standard Is a good thing why
should we try to get rid of it and If the
gold standard Is a bad thing, whly should
we wait until some other nations are win
ing to help us let go?
We care not upon which Issue they forcr
the fight. We are prepared to meet them
upon eiTtier Issue, or both. 1 thank you,
friends and fellow .-ttlzens, in he way

Canea, Crete, July 14. The Christian
delegates In the Cretan assembly, sit

yesterday Mating that hey had resolved
to formulate a declaration setting forth
their claims and demands, and to unite
In n special assembly, from which the
Turks should be excluded from mem
bership. The Insurgents at Apokorona a day or
two ago killed the crew of a Turkish
bark. The Turkish troops pursued the
Insurgents and In their pursuit fired
upon everybody they met along the
shore, making no discrimination In
favor of women or children, of whom
they killed a great many. The action
of the troops has caused Intense ex
citement and indignation and the for
eign onsuls have made a protest
against It to Berovitch Oeorgl Pasha,
the newly appointed Christian governor
of the Island.
The day was the seventeenth anniver

President Faure, accompanied by
Prime Minister Meline. Gen. LeMouton,
Gen. Tournier, chief of the president's
military household, left the palace of
the Klysee In an open carriage and
drove to Long Champs. It having been
arranged that the president should re
view the troops. As the carriage pass
ed through the Porte du Moulin en
trance to the parade It was surrounded
by troops who were to escort the presi
dent to the rcvjewlng stand. Before
tne ventcie nact proceeded far a tall, fair
and correctly dressed man of ubout
thirty-five years. of age, stepped slight
ly in advance of the crowd and drew a
revolver, which some eye-witnesses de
clare he discharged point blank at the
SCKISTR OF EXCITEMENT.
Immediately there was a scene of
greatest excitement and It would un
doubtedly have gone hard with the man
had he not been seized by the gend
armes who were standing by. The man
resisted first, declaring that he had
done nothing. He declared he dis
charged the revolver in exhuberunoe of
spirits. Some of those who stoud close
by him derlure that two shots were
tired. An examination of the revolver
was mude by the police anil appears to
bear out the prisoner's statement that
blank east ridges were used, fur In four
clumbers eu i t ridges with no bullets
were found. He stated that his name
was Francois and refused to say any
thing further. The prisoner appears to
It took only a little time for It to be
learned that M. Faure wus unharmed,
whereupon the crowd cheered the presi--dent-
aval n and again. M. Faure ap
peared t be entirely unmoved by the
excitement and he paid no attention to
the shot and calmly conversed with his
conTifahlons n the carrage.
The police say that Francois Is the
same lunatic who recently threw a bun
dle of petitions from the gallery of the
chamber of deputies Into the body of
house, thereby causing a semi-panic
among the members who Imagined that
the bundle was a bomb.
Late this afternoon he was examined
hy Prefect Leplne. He was then more
communicative and told the prefect that
In discharging the revolver he merely
wished to attract attention. He reit
erated his statements that he had no
wish to Injure anybody and that the
weapon was loaded only with blank
cartridges. Francois was formerly a
street surveyor employed by the muni
cipal council of Paris, but was ills
charged owing to his presumed an
archistic tendencies. The officials be

The feelinsr of the crowd at the re

treatment of a waiter nt the cafe at the
Grand Cascade. In some way thin man
was mistaken by the crowd for Fran

upon him. One of his eyes was torn
from his socket and he was almost
lynrheiT'before the police were able to

Washington, July 14. Hon. Charles

treasury, when asked today If he had
anything to say as to the recent Chi
cago convention, replied: "No politi
cal issue is Involved In the coming elec

threatened. Every loy'ul citizen should
ally himself against the forces which

"Henceforth there should be no Re
