the day debating the bill to Inciease the
subsidiary coinage by coining the silver
bullion In the tieasuty, tfig to le-coin

cessities may requite. The, limit of sub
sidiary coinage Is now $100,000,000 The
bill inct eases this to an Indefinite
amount, in the discretion of the secie
taiy of the tieasuty. The bill aroused
the opposition of the Dt,'inociats, who
claimed It "was only a step in the direc
tion of sti iking down of the silvei dol
lar. The debate drifted Into a geneinl
discussion of the sllvct question. Vety

Beviewing the Fight.
In discussing chunecB this oflltlul
said: "It Is wise to bear In mind that
Tllkln has an equal or better chance
than Quay to capture unlnstructed
delegates. In this fight Hlkln was the
first and natural choice of alt stalwart
Republicans, young and old alike. For
years he had been Quay's tiusted lieu
tenant. In personal touch with the ef
fective workers In every county. The
workers could always see Elkin, talk
muttets over with him and depend on
what ho told them. In later years Quay
has kept l emote from the active men
nnd In touch only with the big guns
who have been accustomed to give
"Now, if nikln had tiled to use this
acquaintance" to build up a machine
against Quay: If he had been treacher
ous to his chief, he could not expect
much from the stalvvaits In control of
the vnrlous counties. As a matter of
fact, he vvus loyalty personified; so
loyal that the only chaiges his oppon
ents can bring against him mlso from
what he did when working under
orders In Quay's behalf. The stalwarts
know this. They also know that It was
Quay who tried to thiow Elkin and
then, not fairly, but by a strangle hold.
Elkin hud told Quay early in the game
that if the leadeis didn't think It wise
for him to be a candidate he would step
aside. He was told to go ahead and
make his fight. Durham assured him
of support In Philadelphia. Quay prom
ised, if not open help, at least neutral
ity. Both promises were bioken, vir
tually without warning, after Elkin
had won In 17 out of 19 counties, the
two others being given to Wattes with
out contests, largely on Quay's recom
mendation. "These facts, and many more, are or
will be known to every county leader
In control of untnstiucted delegates.
In some- counties men friendly to Elkin
wete choseii delegates without Instiuc
tlons because their past lelatlons to
Quay would have made instiuctlons
embairasslng. In other counties the
piecedents of years amounting to an
unwritten law aie against instiuctlons;
but the delegates elected have volun
tarily assured Elkin of their support;
have without solicitation said so In
black and white. Every campaign pio
duces disappointments, but It Is h.udly
likely that men who go out of their
way,,to tell Elkin that they me for him
and vvhephhve nothing to 'expect as a
eonsideiutlou wlll'ln e'onsldeiable per
centage go back on their own engage
ments. The Personal Equation.
"There is another factor which Is giv
ing Senatot Quay leal concern. Elkin
has the enthusiastic suppott of a gieat
majority of the county oiganizittlon
vvotkers, tho men who do things. They
aie vvoiklng for Elkin fiom siieer ad
miration of the man and In Instinctive
levolt against Ingiatitude. Quay has
tiled hard to get them back Into line,
but without lesult. Tho workers whom
he has for Pennj packer arc mainly
graduates from the active ranks, super
annum les, so to speak. They weio
stiong when joung but they now be
long on the shelf. They me for Penny
packer. Why? Hec.iuse they cute a
u.ip for Pennj packet? Certainly not.
Many have never seen him. Some hold
fedeial office under Quay. Some have
held federal office In the past. Some
feel peisonally kindly to Quay and,
upon direct appeal fiom him, have con
sented to lend a hand. The only man
In Quay's whole outfit who Is peisonally
In earnest for Pennypacker is Dm hum,
of Philadelphia; and Durham at heart
is for Elkin, but because of local in
fluences and coiporate orders had to
change front In self pioteetlon.
"You ate going to see some lively sur
mises on the evening of June 10. I
think the aveiago reader of nevvspapeis
not peisonally conversant with polities
and tho ties of friendship and affection
'which develop among soldleis In hard
fought political campaigns are unable
I to undetstand the Intense fealty which
exists among tho stalwmt privates,

St. Louis, May 28. Frank P. Sar
gent, membei of the national board of
arbitration, of which Senator Hanna s
chairman, is in St. Louis. Mr. Sar
gent Is of the opinion that if the strike
of anthiacito mtneis shall not bo set
tled within the next eight or ten days,
theie piobably will be a, sympathetic
stiike in the bituminous fields. Ml.
Sargent said to the Associated Ptc-s:
The individual membeis of the na
tional boaid of tubltiatlon aie using ,
their best efforts to bilng about a set
tlement of the stiike.
"Last month the members of the
boaid met with the opetators and rep
lesentatlvcs ot tho United Mine Work
ers ol Ameilca, In an crfott to sccuie
concessions Horn clthei side that would
be the means ot ottllng the strike. The
operalois icfused to aibltiate or to
concede a single point, and Piesldent
Mitchell wan obliged to return to the

ingly stiuck for the advance of wages

"Up to Inst Mondev, when I left New
Yoik, both sides vveie standing linn,
nnd fiom the condition of things I
think the countiy will see a bitter con
test. I wns told bj Piesldent Mitchell
'that the mlneis weio never In better
financial condition than now to enter
a stiike and the ate conlldeut of win

the will be ablo to hold out at least
sl months mid doubtless longer. In
the meantime, evetythlug possible Ji

"I nm of the opinion that If tho

neNt eight or ten days, mlneis In tho
bituminous Helds will be asked to go
nut 'in .sympathy for their eastern
biethien. A convention of bituminous
opeiatois to decide what action to tako
in the mutter Is under contemplation,
but the dnte of the meeting or place
has not vet been decided on. Should u
sympathetic strike be decided on,
piobably as many as 4r.0,000 miners In

the stiike would Involve the lallioad

"No," ho said, "I don't think thn
stiike will spiead among tho railroad
