THURSDAY, JULY 3. 189*3.
ONE of the St. Lonis hotels asked $45
a day for two small rooms. Three small
rooms in a private house were offered for
the small sum of |io a day. These
prices do not seem exhorbiunt, taken in
connection with a national convention
They do not seem exhorbitant because
the American people have become used
to two and three eharges for accomoda
tions upon such occasions. But suppose
a case. Suppose the railroads should
double or treble their prices. Would 11 t
there be a howl go up all over the coun
try? Wouldn't there be a demand for
more law and regulation? And still the
matter is not changed when private part
ies ask two and three prices for accom
modations. Upon all such occasions the
railroads of the country are the generous
ones, but the rest of the charges are
more tban enough higher to take away
the accruing benefits of lower railroad
fares The railroads give and Ihe hotel
and boarding house keepers take. It is a
matter which is worth calling attention
to, but of course no one with sound sense
hopes that a reform will be wrought out
along these lines. Th-re are some evils
which are beyond the reach of even law
makers. There is only one thing to do
and that is to stay away from such places
unless yon have business there.
IT is somewhat remarkable that the
Presidential campaign this year will l>e
the first on record without a single signi
ficant State election to give an advance
indication of the way in which the gene
ral conflict is likely to go. There will be
many State elections, but under present
circumstances they will shed no light, as
the result in them will be a foregone con
clusion. ' For instance. Alabama votes
in August, Maine and Vermont in Sep
tember, and Florida and Georgia in Oc
tober. But this is rather a comfortable
situation. Our politicsjwere considerably
purified by doing away with the old-time
October States. We would not have
them back if we could. This year no
one is caring about indications. Mc-
Kinley will be elected as surely as he was
nominated, by • big majority.
Gov. McKinley was formally notified
of hia nomination for President bv the
committee appointed t>y uie late conven
tion to do 90 on Monday of last week
and in reply to Senator Thurston's ad
dress said in part.
—"Our domestic trade must be won
back and our idle workingmen employed
in gainful occupation at American wages
Our home market must be restored to its
proud rank of first in the world and our
foreign trade so precipitately cut off by
adverse national legislation, re-opened
on fair and equitable terms for our sur
plus agricultural and manufacturing pro
ducts. Protection and reciprocity, twin
measures of a true American policy,
should again command the earnest en
couragement of the government at Wash

sumed, aud the skill, the energy and the
capital uf our country find ample em
ployment at home, sustained, encouraged
and defended against the unequal com
petition'and serious disadvantage with
they arc contending.
"The money of the United States, and
every Wind of it, -whether of paper, silver
or gold, must lie as good as the l>est in
the world. It mnst not only lie current
at its full face value at home, but it must
be counted at par in any aud all com
mercial centers of the globe. The saga
cious and'far-seeing policy of the great
men who founded our government, the
wisest financiers at every stage in our
history, the steadfast faith anil splendid
achievements of the great party to which
we belong and the genius and intregrity
of our people have always demanded tins
and will ever maintain it. The dollai

NINETY miners were entoml>ed while at
work in the red ash coal vein of the
Twin Shaft at Pitteton, alxuit 3 o'clock
on Sunday morning the 28th ult. The
roof cave<l in, ami it is believed that all
of the men have perished. About forty
of the men were Knglish speaking
miners, the others Hungarians and In
landers. The men were at work proping
up the roof when the fall occurea. The
work of rescuing the men was begun im
mediately, and a number of bodies have
been discovered, but it is feared that not
all will ever be recovered.
The Qlorioue 4th
Butler celebrated the 4th all over last
week all week. Our Young America
seemed determined to get all out of it
there was in it—and they did.
Uniontown, Fayette Co. celebrated
the centenial of its existence as a corpo
ration that day, as well as the day itself;
and the displays of fire works in Sclien
ley and Rtvcrview parks in Pittsburg
were grand.
One hundred and twenty years does
not seem to be a great age lor a nation,
but to us it has l*en tremendous in
events. On the Fourth day of July, j
1776, Uie United States of America was
born. It was an experiment such as the
worl'l had never before seen or experi
enced. Thirteen colonies, without an
artnv or navy, without a treasury and
without a supposed friend in the worl 1,
declared themselves free and independ
ent States. Seven long years of bloody
warfare followed, other nations came to
the rescue of the struggling colonies, in
1781 peace was declared, and the United
States liecame one. of the powers of the
world. It had its up* and downs, its
struggles in reference to the spoliation
claims, its second war with Kngland in
1811-14, but it was not untill the mag*
nifiretit record of 1846-48 111 the war with
Mexico, and the most stii|<endous of all
modei*n contest l !, the civil war of IS6I-65
tba' its real greatness and prowess were
acknowledge by the other and older
nations. It was an infant it learned to
crawl, then to walk, and finally grew to
vigorous manhood. What Its future will
be depends entirely upon those who now
•ompofte and are to compose its govern
ment, frame its purposes, and more than
all its body politic.

While in Washington one day last week
we visited the United State* Treasury,and
throngh the coorteiy of a friend who i* em
ployed there were shown thromgh the van
oo* divisions, vaalts and counting rooms.
The gen'-leman, whom we wul call
Jones. because that .s not bis name, war
well ported on the machinery of the Treas
ury Department. He seemed to have a
clear comprehension of the money
lion, and for our owe Information we plied
1!m with questions, which h« cheerfully
answered. „ _ ...
He first showed us the Secret service
vi-ion, There some tine samples of coun
terleit money are on exhibition and the
photogTanhs of numerous couuterfe.tfcrs
ire displayed on tbo wa;ls. ,XH® thioj{ tu».
Astonishes you is that men and women p >«-
-e»s:nif such ignorant and repulsive look
ing mags should have so much skill in the
a«e of the pen and brush as is exhibit*! by
.heir work. One group of counterfeiters is
labelled "The Tw»nty Beaities." And -u
more h*u6*>a* looking laced coulu
found outside of Pluto's realms.
We next visited the silver vaults *'bere
are stored *152,172,000 in silver coin. The
largest of these vaults is S9 faet long- 01
feet wide and 12 feet high, and is packed
i"ull of silver. The weight of its contents
is 5,000 tons. And only a small part ot
the silver ia in this vault. There is over
twice as much more in t he sub-treasuries.
The total amount of our Bilver ia now near
ly $600,000,000. About $60,000,000 of this
is ; i circulation. Against the
Treasury and sub treasuries $334,0W,uw
in silver certificates have been issued.
"How much gold is there in the coun
tryf" we inquired as we approached the
geld vault. , .. ,
"About #700,000.000," he replied
"There are #3,000,000 in this vault, some
cf wnich belongs to the reserve fund neia
to gecare greenback end silver circulation,
and against some of which gold certify
catea are issued." ... .
"And how much paper circulation haye
wet" . , .
"About #500,000,000. This is destroyed
and re-issued at the rate of $1,000,000 pel
day >"ew notes are exchanged for old
and worn out ones brought -hero for re
•'And ia not gold also given in exchange
"Certainly. If it were not for tha. wo
would soon accumulate a vast amount of
gold. But when gold is asked for, we
must give it. Otherwise people would
soon lose faith in our paper and silver
currenoy. Legal tender notes would be
worth practically uothing. and silver on y
its market value as bullion. The Govern
ment is pledged to keep ail currency at a
par with gold, and the only way to do it
is to be ready at all times to exchange
gold for silver or paper on demand."
"Why do people demand gold."
'•■ Well, you see all the nations with
which we have any dealings (all but
China and Mexico) have the gold stand
ard. They do not recognise anything else
as money, and when our business men in
this country have money payments to
make abroad, they must have gold, and j
we must have it to give them, or borrow
it. We have recently borrowed to the
extent of over
to pay gold on demand we would violate
our pledge to maintain the various kinds
ol currency at a parity, and that would
amount to a suspension ot specie pay
ments. The result would be that differ
ent sorts of currenoy would have different
values, causing great loss and inconven
ience to the people."
"Does not the law require the paper
obligations issued by the Government to
be paid in coin—either gold or silverT"
"Yes; but nobody demands silver. Cold
is iVnanded only because it is needed
for foreign transactions, and the moment
we refuse it we place gold at a premium,
for then those who needed gold would
have t'j go to people who had it and pay
them what they asked for it.
Why is it, Mr. Jones,that while w* have
more gold than silver coin in this country,
and there is no premium on gold money,
that it does not circulate more freely T"
"That is easy. Silver, you see, is not
worth commercially its face value. Throw
a thousand silver dollars into the meltirg
pot and you have #SOO worth of metal.
Meit a thousand gold dollars and you have
SI,OOO worth of metal. When there are
two kindiOf money in circulation one ol
which :s safer than the other, the cheaper
one is always used to discharge debt. Prom
18.' iI to lfilii there comparatively no
silver in circulation in this oountry, be
eause its bullion value was more than its
value as coin. Gold therefore flowed to
the mint, and silver went where it was
better appreciated. Dp to 1853 l«ss than
fonr millioa s:and»rd silver dollars had
been coined in the United States. That
was because its legal ratio was less thau
its commercial lallo. Uoia does nol circu
late now sitfiply because it is underrated
[by our coinage laws. Knowing itself to
I be 32 instead of 16 times more desirable
I than silver, it reluses to associate with the
wffite metal on thoie terms,"
"What, in your opinion, would be the
effect of the free coinage of silver at 16 to
1 without an agreement with other na
tions that they would receive silver at that
"The effect clearly would be that a dol
lar in (fold would goon come to be worth
precisely two silver dollars, because that
in the market ratio, aad is not likely to
I fall far below that. Silver production
would be stimulated. and the white metal
would flow to this country from all parts
|of the world to have Us value doubled by
the magic powor or the Amerioan mint.
Silver would be coined in imraenso quan
titien. U would become the Hole stan.l
aid Gold would become a mero article
of commerce, aDd would play no part a
monej except to discharge foroign obli
gation. We wonld therefore have (rained
nothing, an the gold circulation would be
banished. But we would lone a great deal
The Government could not undertake HO
great a task an to keep unlimited free
coinage silver dollar* at a par with po!d.
because It would be an impossibility.
Our $.'{4G,081,000 of legal tender demand
notes would not be kept afloat unless by
redeeming them in depreciated fiilver,
canning a IOSH to the holder* of about sl*>s,
000,000. The price of all commodities
would be doubled. Your dollar wonld be
only half an valuable an at preHent, and to
buy an article that costs SSO now von
would then have to carry 100 silver dol
lars weighingJlO pounds. Silver certificates
then would bo the only convenient form
of money. But the worst effect wo'ilt! be
the unsettling of all values, and the pre
cipitation of a panic such BH this country
han never seen. liefore the law went into
operation foreign investors would with
draw their capital, and every creditor
would insist ipon his debtor paying up
before the depreciated currency came into
use. This would drive millions of men to
the wall. It would enable insurance com
panies to pay their obligations with halt
the money promised. If went to
Europe with SI,OOO in Amerioan money, it
would be worth only $500."
"Is that all*"
"No. I might stand here all day enu
merating the evils and disasters that
would follow free coinage at lti to 1, and
then not he half through."
"Would the free coinage of silver at
that ratio effect the produotion of goldT"'
•'Undoubtedly because it would not be
fair to say to the gold produoer, Bring a
dollars' worth ot your produot and receive
a dollar lor it, and to the silver producer
Bring a dollars' worth of your product and
receive two dollars. The delusion about
money is peculiar to the American jieoplo.
It is due to the legal tender promises t<>
pay issued during the war, and the agita
iicn which followed the declaration in the
Democratic platform of IHM that Govern
ment bonds should be paid in greenbacks
That, would have been equivalent to ropu
distion. The money question is not a
difficult one if you take honest business
principles for your basis. Cheap money is
one phase of the mania to get something
for nothing."

Chairman Harrity named Hill for tem

with few exceptions, kept their seats dur

When the applause subsided. Clayton
of Alabama arose to mcve that Danici s
name be substituted tor that of HiL, ana
an immense demonstration followed.
Clayton's motion was seconded by
'fhomas of Colorado and a roll of States
was demanded on the motion. The mo

New Jersey and Connecticut advocated

but they appeal for courtesy ana fair

Senator Daniel has the appearance of
an'old-time statesman, smooth shaven,
with clear cut features and raven-black
hair and wearing the conventional black
frock coat, he looked ns if he had just
stepped out of some picture of the senate
of the past. He bowed profoundly in
response to the ovation he received.
When order was restored Mr. Harrity
said: "Gentlemen of the convention, I
have the honor of introducing as your
temporary chairman the honorable John
W. Daniel, of Virginia.
Senator Daniel addressed the conven
tion at length oi the money question,
favoring bimetalisian at a 16 to 1 ratio,
and concluding as follows:
The majority of the conve«tion-I haye
the honor here to represent it-maintain
that this great American nation, with a
natural l.ase of fixed empire, the greatest
ever established by man, with more terri
tory and more productive energy than
Great Britian, France and Germany com
bined, without dependence upon Europ
ean nations for anything that they pro
duce and with European nations depend
ent upon much we produce, is fully
capable of restoring tnis constitutional
money system of gold and silver at equity
with each other.
As our fathers, in 1776, declared our
national independence of all the world,
so to-day has the great Democratic party,
founded by Jefferson, the author of that
declaration, appeared here in Chicago to
announce the financial independence of
the United States of all other nations, and
to invoke all true Americans to asseri it
by their suffrages at the polls, that our
country may lie placed where she by
right belongs, as the freest, as th* fore
most, as the most prosperous and happy
nation that ever blessed the life of man
kind upon this globe.
At the conclusion of Daniel's address,
Hill was called for but would not re
spond; the roll was called, ami the con
vention adjourned till next day.
On Wednesday the convention practic
ally did nothing. The Committee on
Credentials was not ready with its re
port, and the day was consumed in null
ing speeches, that of Altgeld of Illinois
being the most radical.
The platform will probably be discuss
ed to-day.
The money "plank,,' as reported by
the sub committee to the committee 0:1
resolutions is as follows:
Recognizing that the money question
is paramount to all other.-* at tills time,
we invite attention to the fact that th ■
federal constitution names silver and
gold together as the metals ot the Unit
ed States, and that the first coinage law
passed by congres.l under the constitu
tion made the silver dollar tne unit of
value and admitted gold to free coinage
at a ratio measured by the silver dollar
We declare that the act of 1873 de
monetizing silver without the knowledge
or approval of the American people has
resulted in the appreciation of gold and
a corresponding fall in the price of com
modities produced by the people; a
heavy increase in the burden of taxation
and of all debts, public and private; the
enrichment of the money-lending class
at home and abroad; prostration of in
dustry and impoverishment of the people.
We are unafternably opposed to the
single gold standard which has locked
fast the prosperity of au industrial peo
ple in the paralysis of hard times. Gold
monometallism is a British policy and
its adoption has brought other nations
into financial servitude to London. It is
not only un-American but anti-American
and it can be fastened on the United
States only by the stifling of that in
domitable spirit and love of liberty which
proclaimed our political independence in
1776 and won it in the war of the revo
We demand the free and unlimited
coinage of both gold and silver at the
present legal ratio of 16 to 1, without
Waiting for the aid o.- c jnsent of any
other nation. We demand that the stan
dard silver dollai' shall l>e a full legal
tender with gold for all debts public and
private and we favor such legislation as
will prevent the demonetization of any
kind of legal tender money by private
A Great Campaigner
Ohio has produced two of the three
greatest jxditical campaigners of my day
—James A. Garfield, and William McKin
ley. I need hardly say that the third
was James G. Blaine, of Maine. The
chief qualities that go to the making of a
really great .stump orator are simplicity
and directness of statement, a clear, far
reaching voice, a winning personality,
an inborn faculty for giving to sjiokcii
thoughts such a projectile force as will
secure for them a lodgment in other
minds, and finally physical endurance.
All thess qualifications McKinley posses -
ses to a high degree. He has not as
wide a range of thought and illustration
as Garfield had, and lie is not as magnet
ic and spontanodtis as Blaine was; but
neither of those two suj>erb orators had
as great a gift for going straight on the
understandings of plain people as he
possesses. He never tells a story in his
speeches; he is the personification of
seriousness anil earnestness. He quotes
no poetry, he strives for no merely orato
rical effect; be never abuses his political
antagonists or opposing party. He al
ways starts out to convince the under
standing of his hearers; then, when he
has presented his facts and set fort 11 his
processcss of reasoning, quietly, logically,
and persuasively, he warms up, his deep
set eyes glow, his form seems to tower,
liis voice rings out like a trumpet, and he
drives iif his argument with sledge-ham
mer blows of .Tiort, sonorous, epigram
matical sentences. Hu has wonderful
staying qualities. He is never exhausted.
To every fresh audience lie brings the
charm of a vigorous presence. He lias
extended his stump speaking work from
his county to his Congressional district,
from liis district t<> this State, and from
his State to the wb'ile country; and I do
not lielicvc there is a public man of this
day who has made as many addresses or
talked to as many |>eoplc. I luring his
great stumping ton* 1 of iS<>4, which un
questionably won for him the president
ial nomination, more than two millions
of people in eighteen States heard his
voice. Once he made seventeen speeches
in twenty-four hours. At Hutchison
Kail., thirty thousand jieople assembled
to hear him, and in Topcka his audience
was estimated at twenty-five thousand.

Report of the Middlesex School Cele
bration of July 4th.
This dilapidated old building where the
picnic was field is located along the Butler
plank road above Glade Mills, and was
used fifty years ago. used as a school house,
it has been remodeled since then and ii at
the pre-«nt day u.<ed for a dwelling
One of the encouraging feature* that 1
have t<> report of this pionio is the steadily
incro:i v icg interest on the part of almost
evervb<-;ly, the interest manifested at this
meeting was phenomenal. The lack of an
audience was at one time, the great draw
back to )'>oal celebrations, a tew people
would assemble, and without any regular
outline of work, put in the time and then
go ho no, having received very little bene
fit fr« in the meeting. But now, how
changed is the order of things in this par
tioutar, people oame miles to attend this
looal educational gathering, and as a rule
ail took some part in the celebration, Dot
"•ily did lawyer* and ministers and busi
u<i..s men patronise this meeting, but be
came enthusiastic and entered into the
discussion of educational questions, con
sequently making the work of the day co
operative and Impressive between patrons
and the leading speakers of the occasion.
Sir. Simoon Nixon of Butler, favored us
with a good speeoh. The following is an
abstract of his remarks.
It affords me great pleasure to stato that
there has been decided improvement iu
cholarship end professional qualifications
uf our teaching lorco during the last fifty
years, heuco elevating the young g»nera
iuis up to a higher plaue of culture, man
hood, truth, sincerity and industry, on
the whole I look upon our teachers with
pride, they aro ambitious, honest and
capable, bearing their discouragements,
and are misunderstood by the public and
Ihey fail to receive the encouragement and
support which uiey have a to expect.
Citizens, whether patrons of the sohools or
uot, yon have a duly to perlorui toward
the schools, tho responsibility of which
you cannot evade. To encourage thorn by
your occasional presence and to commend
their good features.
In conclusion permit me to say that
wi'.h such an efficient educational system,
with 80 many public spirited and seli
svrilising directors, striving to further the
interests of the schools, that the out-
I.IOK fir our schools is very bright.
Tin, of the day was discontinu
ed ai'il after dinner, all proceeding in par
taking of tbe bounteous and abundant
suppl , of provisions which the people of

were. ;!istruinontal in preparing for this

Be k>tioat M followa: BIW MOM
in i 1 - iiistory of Hatler county have I been
p-jr.iij'.r.ed to spend a day at an education
H! met :ing that i appreciated HO highly an
I did -iiia one. The many suggestions and
Hi* miorniatlon obtained a* thin meeting
i lie school line during the school days
of our old pioneer* when thoy attended
fell '■! in thin old bailding, will leave an
impression upon t v e mindojot those present
at thin meeting altogether indexible and
which timo even itself cannot efface.
.\g* n r.liow me to express that tho nocia
bility which we all manifested toward oaoh
other on thin occasion is long to be re
mem lit red. In conclusion allow me to
thank you lor your undivided attention and
your kind hospitality.
Thii last speaker was John C.Logan who
said that Simon Nixon and everybody who
participated in thin celebration were en
titled to mnch oredit for the ectivo part
they took in tt.o maeting and for the inter
est ai.il enthusiasm they awakened in the
comuinnfty in which it was held. He be
lieves that if the people had more urgani
nations of this kind througout the country
than they hate had that there would be
groater progress and a more rapid growth
in popular education and that the people
would recognise a more thorough and gen
uine belief in the value of education to the
individual and the nation- XXX.

will be glad that the sunflower State has
in prospect the greatest wheat crop it
ever harvested. It is estimated at 43,-
