drowning accident set the Third brigade
camp In a stir.
Patrick Brennan, of Minersvllle, a
hostler In Battery C, was bathing in the
river this morning with two compan
ions and sank despite their efforts to
suve him. The three were swimming
in the middle of the stream, about a
quarter of a mile above where the Thir
teenth camp is located. Hundreds of
the soldiers crowded the bank during
the day watching the unsuccessful ef
forts to recover the body. A cannon
was fired near the spot for several hours
in hopes of rising the remains to the
surface by concussion and the river was
waded and dragged. Tomorrow a
whole battery or dynamite will be used
In an effort to raise the body. The ac

Cincinnati. July 20. A special to the

Six miles from above here, at the mouth
of Three Mile Creek, occurred one of

Last night Call and his family retired.
Ettu Robblns. uged 24, was at their
house and retired with one of the daugh
ters. A little boy who was sleeving
with his father makes the following
statement, he being the only one .out
side the Robblns woman able tu talk:
"At three o'clock this morning 1 was
uwakelied by Etta Kobbius cutting my
father with a double bit uxe. My sis
ters, Lottie and Nettie, ran Into our
loom and Miss Robblns turned on them.
She killed Nettie and cut Lottie several
times, when Lottie leaped from the boat
Into the river. She then cut several of
us children and threw the axe at Lot
tie, who was swimming to the shore."
The woman acknowledged the killing
of A. J. Call, but denies killing the
others. Call's head was almost cut off
and his heart was visible from a wound
In his breast. The head of the girl
killed was also almost cut off and her
heart cut out. The children Were cut ill
a dozen places. A coroner's Jury was
Impanelled. The verdict was that Etta
Robblns committed the murders. The
boat was cut loose and brought here
and the woman placed In jail. The feel
ing Is very strong, and thousands of
excited persons line the river bank and
many threats are heard.

clal policy outlined ill the Republican plat
form: BI T ONE CUl'RSE TO Pl'RSCE.
To those who believe In bimetallism,
there is but one course to pursue, und tliut
is to unite all the silver forces to oppose
with ull our might the candidate repre
senting tile policy which We believe is
fraught with disaster to the notion and
ruin to the people. Gold monometallism
means the shifting to gc'J lone us pil
luury money all the burdens of commerce
and credit formerly borne by gold and sil
ver, and the world's stock of these metals
has always been about euuul In amount.
It tueaus the doubling of the burden upon
gold. Doubling the burden upon gold
means doubliligthe demand for the same,
und doubling tue demand of necessity
doubles the value thereof. This gradual
shifting tu gold of all the burdens of both
gold and silver has caused a gradual and
steady increase in the value of every dollar
redeemuble In gold and hence a gradual
and steady decline In the value of every
commodity that Is measured by that dol

Mr. McKlnley consented to the insertion

declared on thinly veneered by a declara
tion for bimetallism when the leading cum
UHlviai nations of the world should con
sent, but until that consent was secured,
the gold stdhdurd must be maintained.
It is Well known that this consent cannot
be -secure from Great Britain and that
such declaration for bimetallism gains
nothing with this limitation upon it. Mr.
McKlnley consented to the declaration
fur the gold standard In the platform and
In his recent speeches has accepted It,
and has become the advocate thereof, he
has shown by his speeches heretofore
made tiiat lie understood the danger of
the gold standard and the distress which
would be indicted upon the American peo
ple by its adoption, und yet he pledges the
people to support and maintain that sys
tem, and fasten upon them ull the evils
of this s stein, which he heretofore re
pudiated. If they will make him president.
Whatever may have been his attitude on
the money question in the Past, he must
Inevitably hereafter support the same

in the sale ol bonds 111 time of peace.
Hence, with the success of Mr. McKlnley
we may look for a continued lncreasr of
the public debt and the sale of bonds to
maintain the gold standard.
That the condition of the country is not
satisfactory, all admit. The producers of
wealth are not receiving fair und proper
compensation for their labor, whether In
thiid, factory or mine, enterprise has
ceased, values are constantly declining,
labor Is unemployed, discontent and dis
tress prevail to an extent, never before
known in the history of the country and
mi such system can remedy it.
Some declare that It is because we have
too much tariff, others that we have not
While thus differing In opinion, they
unite in asserting that the gold standard
must be maintained until foreign coun
tries shall signify their willingness that
the American people shall exercise the
riRht of free men and create a financial
system of their own. There is no hope for
International bimetallism until the I'uited
States shall establish bimetallism for it-
Self, and when that Is done. International
bimetallism may be secured without the
consent of Qreat Britain. The t'nlted
States on all other subjects of legislation
acts independently of any other nation on
earth, liy what process of reason Is Its
right, authority, ability to legislate upon
this, the most Important subject with
which it has fo deal, questioned, or denied .'
With. a nation equal in Wealth und power
to one-fourth of the world, It Is folly to
say that we must ask permission of G'e.it
Britain to establish and maintain a finan
cial policy of our own. Believing us we
do, that a return to the monetary system
especially recognized In the constitution
has completely provided for by luw from
172 till 1173 affords the only ground or
hope for the betterment of the distressed
condition of all classes except those who
live by the Increment that money loaned
gives to those who loan It, we appeal to
all classes to rally to the support of the
only candidates whose success indicates
any hope of relief.
Let the merchant and business-man,
whose dwindling and lessened profits have,
despite his cures and economy brought
him face to face with prospective bank
ruptcy and ruin, the professional man
whose best efforts scarcely afford him
compensation for his labor alone, the
farmer, the continually falling' price", of
whose products have left him no return
for capital Invested und work performed,
and last, but not least, let the grand army
of laboring men, so called, the artisan,
the merchunt and the miner, and every
one w ho depends upon his daily la'aor for
his dally bread, look about him and ob
serve the great number of those who vain
ly seek for a chance to work upon the
great army of enforced idlers, and one and
all resolve to try, not an experiment (tor
bimetallism is not un experiment), but
rather return to a policy that through,
out the vicissitudes of our nation's in
fancy, through Ihe Internecine struggle of
its manhood kept us a great, free and
prosperous nation, in which the labor was
Hot only respected and employed, but was
so compensated that WHiit and distress
such as now weigh upon us was unknown.
Let the lesson of history, too recent and
loo plain to he KUinsuid or denied, he
heeded and let there be no fear that a
system that so wonderfully protected la
bor, developed business enterprise and
secured to the nation a contented and
prosperous people in the past, will do
auuht but bring to us a return of like
