Last Night's DcinonstraT:on.
After last evening's Impressive dem
onstration there cannot be room for
doubt as to . the devotion of Lacka
wanna county to McKInk-y, Protection
and Sound Money. ' Such a scene has
been witnessed but once or twice before
In the local history of Republicanism.
It marks for this section of the state the
beginning- of a new political era and
assures the casting next November of
nn overwhelming majority In Scranton
and the county for the Republican
The sentiment of this great demon
stration wns fittingly worded In the
resolutions adopted at the mass meet
ing which followed the parade. What
ever differences of Republican opinion
may have characterized the academic
stages of the currency controversy, the
resolutions aro correct In asserting that
today, against the demand of the Chl
rago convention for a radical and sure
ly disastrous revolution in our national
finances, the Republicanism of the
Lackawanna valley, keeping In touch
with that of the nation, plants itself
equarely nnd unequivocally for the
fxlntlng gold standard, under which,
except for the last three years of Demo
cratic "tariff reform," the American
people hnve steadily progressed to their
Ifrealest prosperity. Protection Is nec
essarily first. That Is the corner Btone
of the Republican arch. But to the up
rising of western and southern Popul
ism for currency debasement and re
pudiation through the medium of the
silver single standard, with Its shriv
eled values and Its dishonest wage, as
to the cognate propaganda for industry-destroying
British free trade, the
Republican party presents an emphatic
and unqualified negative. This action
It takes, not as the foe but as the friend
of the producing interests. It proposes
to save those interests from the odium
of attempted repudiation and from the
Incalculable misery and ravages of a
free silver panic. As in the case of the
greenback craze, the Republican party
stands anew for the honor and the
credit of the nation, and those will yet
thank It most earnestly who are now
furthest deluded into the advocacy of
greenbacklsm's economic child.
Among the active participants In last
evening's celebration were many men
formerly affiliated with the Democracy.
These recruits to the ranks of prosper
ous government are cordially wel
comed. There Is scarcely a Democrat
In Lackawanna county who docs not
feel In his own heart that Republican
Ism In actual practice Is the best. The
Peculiar present conditions of national
politics make this a good year for all
such voters to get over on the right
aide. The. Republican latch string Is
always out, and every honest convert
can feel assured of a generous recep
tion. It was a great ratification, and no
mistake; but the biggest one will occur
on November 4.
"The money of the I'nitcd Slates,
nnd every kind or form of it, whether
of paper, silver or gold, must be as
poud us the best in the world. It must

If the object of free coinage is merely
to exhibit the power of the United
States government over the laws of
trade and finance, there would be much
more reason In advocating the unlimit
ed coinage of pig iron at 16 to 1. since
thereby we could have money to rust.
No Lowering of the Flcg!
A number of Democratic Journals of
the east which a few weeks ago were
full of abuse and misrepresentation of
William McKinley are now begging the
Republican nominee to make It easy
for sound money Democrats to support
him for president. The declaration of
their party at Chicago for free coinage
has occasioned them such uneasiness
that they are seeking for pretexts to
cover a bolt to McKinley; nnd the fav
orite pretext for which they now peti
tion Is that the Republican candidate,
out of deference to their free trade pre
dilections, will kindly "let up on Pro
tection." If he will do that, they argue
that he can secure hundreds of Demo
cratic votes which might be alienated
by a consistent nilvocacy of his well
known views concerning the tariff.
To this cowardly argument the Iltiffa
lo Enquirer, Itself a Democratic piper
which In this campaign has accepted
and Indorsed McKinley unreservedly,
makes the following manly reply; "This
ought to be an honest carTvass; and no
man ought to vote for McKluloy under
any delusions. He is precisely the same
gentleman against whom the Demo
cratic party In reality waged Its fight
in 1S92. It Is out of his name that they
manufactured the word which they ap
plied to the policy of the Republican
party, McKlnleyisni. They attacked
him then as the champion of 'the rob
ber barons of Protection' the author of
a plckiiocket tariff, the villain who was
supposed to be plundering the many
for sake of the few. He voted for the
Sherman net, which they denounced,
but against free sliver which they advo
cated at that time thoush so horrified
at the thought of it now. It is be
cause of the hostile reputation that they
have given to htm as well as because
of his worth and ability that the Re
publcan party has made him a presi
dential candidate. He has not changed;
and If his Democratic critics want to
vote for him they must take him as he
is. It would be folly for him to blur
the whole record of his life, to enable
his enemies to keep up a pretense of
consistency. It may not be easy for
Democrats to vote for Mr. McKinley
and the return of the Republican party
to power; but they should do It frank
ly If they do It at all; and If they can
not do it without making false pre
tenses to themselves and to the public
they should nominate some candidate
that they can support with better
grace. As for the . Republicans they
should keep on the even tenor of their
way. They are not running a Demo
cratic ticket, or advocating a Demo
cratic policy, or vindicating a Demo
cratc administration; and they should
shade neither their principles nor their
purposes for the sake of outside votes.
The really independent voter will act
without asking concessions and mak
If William McKinley were the trim
mer that these same Democratic papers
recently represented him to be, he
might possibly give heed to their pres
ent appeals. But In doing so he would
lower himself In the estimation of all
steadfast believers In principle, a
thing he Is not likely to do. The Issue
as drawn by the St. Louis convention
puts Protection first. Without that,
even the gold standard cannot bring
prosperity. If the menace contained in
the Chicago platform Is enough to
cnuse sound money Democrats to de
cline to support Bryan it ought to be
enough to cause them to support Mc
Kinley and not divide the sound money
forces. If It is not, let them swallow
their party medicine and cease to make
The Republican cause can win wheth
er It has Democratic help or not. The
simple question for sound money Demo
crats to consider Is whether they are
partisans or patriots first.
Mr. Sewall was nominated in the ex
pectation of capturing his "barl."
When that expectation Is once realized
or thwarted, the Populists will have
done with Bewail.
An Awkward Situation.
We feel sure thr.t every reader of
these lines will sympathize with tho
editor of the Wllkes-Barro Leader In
the sad predicament which has come
to him. Mr. Bogert has for years been
a champion of the gold standard. He is
now a federal office-holder, by the
favor of Grovor Cleveland, whom the
Chicago convention not only repudiated
but also Insulted. Yet Mr. Bogert is a
Democrat and the editor of the leading,
and, In fact, only relluble Democratic
organ In Luzerne county a paper which
owes all It has to the favor of the
tinder these circumstances, what
else could the postmaster of Wilkes
Barre do but to hoist the Democratic
ticket, Bryan and Sewall? To be
sure, such action may bring down upon
his hsad the disfavor of tha adminis
tration to which he owes hl3 appoint
ment; but the authorities of Washing
ton can hardly go so far as to request
him to resign because of his champion
ship cf a party which they first led Into
the ways of Populism and class pre
judice. On the other hand, If he wera
to support McKinley, It would, under
previous rulinns of the Cleveland rc-
! Kln-.e, lay him open to the charge of
perrlcious activity crd pcsslkly Im
peril Lis tenure cf office.
From any standpoint his Is an em
barrassing prco'.camcnt. Perhaps af
ter all the solution v.hl.-h he has adopt
ed Is the easiest way out. He sup
lrts Rryan rending the naming of a
bolting Democratic ticket. In which
event he stands ready to cat his words
and pitch into the boy orator of the
Platte with all his might and main.
Mr. Rryan is correct In his assumption
that the currency question is a question
of morab" but he Is mistaken when he
Imagines that It Is moral to try to force
the payment of debts In 53-cent dollars.
The New State Chairman.
The question whether Senator Quay
would be invited to assume a leading
place In the management of the McKin
ley campaign has from the first In
volved simply the point whether he
could be persuaded to accept such a
commission to duly. The fact that he
has accepted the Joint summons of
Messrs. McKinley nnd Hanna puts an
end to all speculation and assures that
the Republican presidential canvass
will be v.c!l managed.
In the politics of today there Is no
strategist and no organizer of political
forces known to be the equal of Mat
thew Stanley t.Hiay. Friend and foe
alike concede this. It Is possible that
he hus potential eouala yet undeveloped.
We should not like to believe thnt the
genius of polltioal command would not
survive Colonel Quay. Rut I'.un far,
among the full-fledged politicians of his
time, he stands without a peer; and It
was, therefore, a thing of course that
he would be Invited to give to the nom
inees at St. Louis the benefit of his
masterly adroitness, executive general
ship and strategic skill.
While the acceptance of this trust will
take him from the post of director of
the state campaign, the Republicans of
Pennsylvania are fortunate In having.

shown In several campaigns that he Is

future. His accession to the state
chairmanship assures an enegetlc, pru
dent and manly canvass, with no es
sential quality lacking at headquarters
and with some past evils sure to be re
moved. rKEE COINAGE WOULD FAIL.
From an article by Editor Dodworth of
the New York Journul of Commerce, In
the New York Journal.
The critical question affecting the pro
posed revolution of our monetary system
is. What would be tho results of Its opera
tion, assuming the possibility of Its ever
being put in force? The sllverite leaders
think their programme presents a pros
pect of smooth saillns toward a safe
haven. They assure us that the moment
the mint Is authorized to convert into dol
lars ull the silver bullion brought to It
there will be a scarcity of silver for tho
arts and manufactures and for export to
India and China which will at once raise
Its price to the unte-depi eciallon level,
and thereby bring the Intrinsic or market
value of the silver dollar up to the lepal
ratio of lli parts of silver to t of gold.
This they malntuln, In spite of their ad.
minion that the European stocks of the
White metal would be drawn hither and
that the supposed rise in Its price would
immensely Increase Its output at the mines
of all producing countries. Of course,
tiicy have no choice between aflirminK
these claims and admitting in advance
the certain defeat of their experiment.
II II II
This Is their theory of the working of
their scheme. Let us weigh some of the
obstacles which free coinage must encoun
ter from the day of Its inception and even
before. Being a violent revolution, the
project would encounter universal dis
trust of Ha success: and, from the Instinct
of self-protection the tinanclally Influen
tial classes would oppose It at every point.
The earliest opposition would naturally
come from the creditor interests, and first
from Europe, to which this country Is
enormously indebted. England, Germany
and Holland hold an amount of our bonds,
mortgages and stocks estimated variously
at from tl.jOU.000.OUO to-SJ.uw.Oou.ouO. Hith
erto the principal and Interest of these In
vestments have been regarded as pay
able In gold or its representatives. In
spile of the protestations of the silverltts
of their ability to keep unlimited issues of
silver upon a parity with gold, these
creditors would regard their Investments
ns having become payable In silver of ut
terly uncertain value. It has been made
abundantly plain that they have no con
lidcnce whatever In the possibility of re
storing silver to Its former monetary func
tions and value; not even if It were guar
anteed by the strongest possible Interna
tional union; and much less when tho
guarantor were able to restore silver from
31 pence to Cl pence per ounce the whole
world over, and to keep it there. Inevit
ably, therefore, the first step of this In
fluential mass of creditors would be to
send our securities home for realization.
II II II
Ordinarily a sudden return of $100.01,
090 to $150,000,000 worth of our securities
has sufllced to produce panic at New York;
what would be tho sort of panic when the
amount of Investments seeking realiza
tion was ten to fifteen times those
amounts'.' The crisis would be lnstane
ous and overwhelming; surpassing In the
extent of its ruin anything experienced
In the history of this or any other coun
try. Its effects would extend to all the
European money markets, and London
would suffer a shoci: compared with which
the great Baring failure would be a small
affair. Our vast liquidations of foreign
debt would compel on Immediate suspen
sion of gold payments. Every obtainable
dolli'r of gold would be forthwith export
ed to settle the enormous adverse bal
ance, of the exchanges thus i I.-:lnu: and
the yellow metal would rise to a premium
regulated only by the necessity of procur
ing It In large sums for export nnd the
disposition to hoard It as the only safe
money in the country. This exhaustion
of our ctoi k of gold through payments to
our forelen creditors would leave us with
no other procurable coin legal tender than
the silver dollar; end thus we should be
hopelessly precipitated upon the rlneie
silver basis, and the depreciation of sil
ver would be measured by th premium on
gold. The Immediate effect would thus
be that, Instead of the bimetallic basis
wlih-h the Bllverltes profess to aim at, we
should be committed to rllver monometal
lism, nnd the plan would break down at
Its earliest Inception.

ids enumeration uf consequences Is no
mere theoretic protralture. it is a sober
and unstrained deuuctlon lroni an obvious
process of cauce and ett'eet which no ca.i
Uid economist or Intelligent man of affairs
would ceny to be Inseparable from suen
a violent monetary revolution as the sliver
faction p:opOes: tj introduce. History
presents no Instance of the ueterioiatlon
of a money standard unattended by a con
sequent violent disturbance of the for
elyn exchange and by distrust and col
lapse in domestic interests; no case of
forcing Into circulation a dubious and
fluctuating currency alongside one of
stable value without expelling the supe
rior money from the country or out of cir
culation. Kvery nation has bequeathed
us lessons of disaster due to trilling with
tho quality of its currency. Not one of
tiie numerous nationalities has escaped
thu penalty of dishonest deterioration of
the money standard, und today the coun
tries that are weakest, least progressive,
lowest In credit and least able to stand
tho contest of International competition
are those whose monetary system is un
bound or discredited. Under free coin
ago that would be our rank, in splto of
our miignilieent reiiourcej of national
wealth may become comparatively unpro
ductive under a money system that glvs
no guaranty of the stability of values and
II H II
It is precisely at the point of our for
eign linancial relations that this attempt
at national suicide would meet Its first
check. We may prostitute the force of
luw by compelling our citizens to accept
un unstable- or depreciated form of money,
b'.u we eun apply no such compulsion to
lureij.n coir nt rlen, from whose commerce
we cannot isolate ourselves. For all that
we buy from them they would demand
settlement in gold) and if we drive our gold
out of the country, then our settlement!
must be made in silver, not at its fictitious
face value, but ut its true bullion value.
On the other hand, our exports would be
paid for not in gold, but In silver at Its
current rate of depreciation. No country
so situated can successfully compete In
foreign commerce with nations which
pay and receive payments in the most
stable form of money. To meet this preg
nant fact with the empty assertion that
we can afford to assume a position of in
dependence of foreign commerce is merely
to substitute braggadocio and falsehood
when honest argument falls.
II II II
In view of the foregoing recital of the
effects that would Instantly arise from an
attempt to establish free coinage. It is
clear that even before the revolution could
get under hend'.voy it would be self-overthrown.
Before the mania had run Its
course for one month, the consequences
abovo foreshadowed would be upon us
In all their force. And what then? Would
the country supinely permit the rWn to
run Its unchecked course nnd wait for tho
worst possible culminations of disaster?
Not for a moment. There are some fol
lies so monstrous as to be Impossible of
enactment, even by madmen. There Is al
ways a limit somewhere to the freaks of
political lunacy; and In this case the
strait-Jacket would be put In use before
tho abyss was reached. The men who
control finance would see the consequences
before tho consummation of the legisla
tive act, and n clear prospect of tho en
actment of a free coinage law would either
prevent the passage of the law or firing
about Its repeal immediately upon It en
actment. FOR TIIE GOLD STANDARD.
Times Interview with William Connell.
"I stand squarely upon the Republican
platform, upon the currency question, as
well ns upon all other Issues before the
country. It Is a fair, outspoken declara
tion of principles. It does not straddle
on a single uqestion. I am for the main
tenance of the gold standard until an in
ternational bimetallic agreement can be
reached, nnd until that I am opposed to
the free coinage of silver at the ratio of
1C to 1 or a t any other ratio. I do not heal-
tato to say that I believe the attempt of
this government to Inaugurate free coin
age would be followed by the worst panic
this country has ever seen.
CANNOT I5K TRISTED.
From the Buffalo Enquirer.
The Democratic party must be Judged
not so much by its promises, whether
good or bad. as by its record for the Inst
three yenrs. It has not kept Its word In
any respect. It has shown Incapacity fn
foreign affairs, duplicity In finance, and
Inability even to raise enough revenue to
pay the current expenses of the govern-
msnt. No matter what faction Is to
blame; no matter whether the executive
has lacked brains, or the Democratic sen
ators have lacked patriotism, the plain
result Is party dishonor and disaster. Its
reign began In panic and continues In de
pression. It should be turned out of
