This is precisely what many people apparently fail to realize, hut a little consideration will show the truth of the statement. Nojw. as In lfltl. the honor of the country is at stake on the financial question. The Bryan proposition in regard to free silver means repudiation and dishonor. This every one comprehends, but it is to be feared that thousands of voters fail to appreciate the fact that free silver is Just as real and dangerous now as it was four years ago, and soothe themselves with the comfortable belief that the silver issue is dead. Dead ifkwill be If the Republican party is continued in power, but it would spring into a robust and active life if Mr Bryan should be elected. The chatter of the Democratic platform and the Democrtic orator about "Imperi alism Ming the paramount issue would have no meaning the day after election if Mr. Bryan should win. The Philippines would still be ours and the living realjty of free silver would then be painfully apparent. The only affirmative propposition in the Demo rratic platform is the clause declaring for free silver at the ratio of lti to 1. If Mr. Bryan carries the country he will say. with truth, that the voters approved this proposition, and tliat he has a mandate from the people to put into execution the financial policy for which the Democratic platform do dared so plainly. He will have a Secretary of the Treasury who will be able to do much merely by virtue of his office toward putting us on a silver basis and wrecking our credit find ot'tr financial honor. He will have a House which will agree with him, and which will promptly pass a bill to repeal the gold act and establish the free coinage silver. His election would imply the loss of many Republican seats in the Senate, and the margin there would be so narrow that under the pressure of . the administration, backed by the result at the polls, if might readily give way, and would be at best but an uncertain defence against putting this country promptly and finally upon a sliver basis. Free silver as an issue is dead so long as its (Champions are beaten and kept out of power, but the event of their attaining power would become. It ia feared, victorious In legislation ' wV'f-er the slender barrier of a small ita-niiMican majority in the Senate prevented a free silver law or not of ,7iT'rntlvely little moment so far as the effect upon business of Bryan's election Is concerned. The agi-tation'of the' question in ' Congress would be almost as bad for business actual legislation.

This pe. iliar bent uives rise to the impression that Mr. .Johnson must be' the man who writes librettos, hut ther,. is no verification of this. ! Mr. Johnson's wife's skeleton was 1 not cordially received by Chic'iKO, hut this was undoubtedly due to the fact that, the census taker had already made his rounds, and nothing-could be added to the city's pride or greatness. Nevertheless. Mr. Johnson's Wife's bones were allowed to remain, and were suitably Interred.

BUSINESS, NOT APATHY. From time to time small lots of "apathy" appear to be offered to the managers of the leaning parties in the campaign, and purveyors of this political commodity are meeting with occasional encouragement from the really anxious. It is much more usual to hear of the business at this stage of political work than later, and for reasons that seem to be particularly strong in this campaign. In many states the political campaign has opened with the manifestation of what one side calls "apathy," meaning indifference to the success the other party, but which the other side is disposed to account for 1n an entirely different manner. At the republican headquarters the talk of republican "apathy" Is met and answered by some figures and facts that should give the opposition pause, if they do. not absolutely convince. The republican theory about reported ' apathy'' is that the people of trie United States are too busy, just now, with affairs that must be attended to devote themselvese to premature campaign worries or diversions. The farmers, particularly in good wheat states, are hustling to get crops to market. Men engaged in manufacturing are making the most of an extra ordinary demand for American goods home and abroad, and do not care quit the shops to snout. In all the ! fields of .activity there is opu tunitv j work and moneymaking. at rates . better than they were four years ago. ' If what is called "apathy'' is merely ! gainful employment of voters in many states there need be no worry about those workingmen in November. They may not be-an getting rich as fast as they desire, but none of them" will vote to make the conditions and gains of his employment less secure great than they are today and have been since Mr. Bryan was not elected. o A long-drawn controversy with the Tribune is neither desirable or profitable at this time. All that has been necessary to say of the organization of republican central committee haa been said and so far as the Pioneer-Times is concerned there won't be any "you're another" discussion The na tional, state and county tickets will without the aid or consent of the Tribune. The waoie trouble with the Tribune is that its vision is circumscribed; it is controlled by its intense hatred of Judge Moore, "smarting under the indignities heaped upon it, it assumes that every one who is friendly to San Souci. Is unfriendly to It attempt to reason with any one In state of mlna would be as proline results as it would be to reason with a speckled Jackass. There will other elections and the memory of men is sometimes' inconveniently retentive. This Is no time to do the baby act. . ; - ' . . -. : - ' - Pettlgrew says he will retire from public life if Bryan is defeated. Well, Bryan's defeat is practically assured, PettlgTew's' retirement is an absolute certainty, and no part of the procedure win rest on the option of the former .

From b.-in: a debtor we have become a creditor nation. The Knglish loan whicn has been taken here within the last few days is hut one indication of what has been going on for th.- last two or three years In the course of trade with the rest of the world during the last four years there has come a balance in our favor of some two thousand million dollars. These vast balances have not been paid. There has been a great return of American stocks to this country, but after making allowances for all of this, it is still certain that Europe owes us a great deal of money, and that a large proportion of our accumulated trade balances is still across the wtaer in the form of loans. The panic which would follow Bryang election would tuaueevery business man to take steps to prote-ct himeTTand every lender of money wrmtd proceed to call his loans as fast as he could. The financial condition of Europe at the present moment is far from good. England is hampered by the heavy-expenses of the South African war, the exposition has been a fhTancial failure in France, the industrial situation in Germany is had. and Russia on the edge of bankruptcy. All i these conditions ate made worse by I the Clilnese situation. The "old sup- j ply in England is very low. -eiey are ! no condition to stand a sudden drain, or. indeed, any drain at all. If. ! then we should begin to a"i Aineri- I an loans, and if tne prosperous move. ! ment of American business should i,P arrested, as it would be l,v Bryan's ; election, there would be a panic upon j every bourse in Europe. To sun- I porters of Mr. Bryan, this, no doubt, seems a very desirable thing, but unfortunately it would at once react upon this country, and the domestic panic which Mr. Bryan's, election would cause in the United States would be intensified and accelerated the panic which would ensue in foreign coutnries. If the United States which is today holding firm and steady the economic and financial conditions of the entire world, and therefore, an arrest of our prosperity disaster in our business, would bring about a world-wide business panic, the like of which we have never seen. Prices woula fall, new enterprises would cease, old enterprises would be contracted, wages would be reduced and thousands of men wouia thrown out of emolovment. with all multiplying tniortiine whl"h would surely follow when -onfTdmice the administration and In our financial legislation wa- da-troved by a democratic victory The contemplation of the results which would flow from Bryan's election ought to stimulate every man who has good" employment or business interests of any kind to the ut- most exertion of which he is capable prevent such a catastrophe. 1 naTe touched only on the business.

W. J. Bryan, at Louisville, Ky. o THE GREAT STRIKE. The executive board ol the United Mine Workers of America has ordered a strike of the hard coal miners of Pennsylvania io go Into effect Monday, September 17th. After a fruitless effort to get some concessions from the operators the strike was ordered as a last resort. The following are a few of the facts and figures of the coming , trik: Number of men in anthracite mines 149,000 .Number belonging to unions. . 134,100 Number that will go out 149,000 Number of persons deprived of Income 500,000 Union funds on hand 4 50,000 Average dally wages received by miners $1.33 Average wages of day men at mines .90 Daily loss in wages $166,880 Area of coal fields, sq. miles 470 Average annual production. tons .75,000,000 In the mines in the Lackawanna' and Wyoming Valley. di8trlct3 80,000 men ' and boys are employed. Of these 50.-000 are distributed through the work-i ings lying between Pittaton. in Lucerne County, and Forest City, in Susquehanna County. Inere are 25,000 f employes In the mines in the vicinity of WHkesbarre. Ashley, Nantlcoke. Plymouth and Wanamlt; 13.000 about Hazletan. 20,000 at Mahoney City and Shenandoah, and 23,000 around Sham-okln, Pottsville and Mount Carmel. The closing of te mines is expect-". ed to reduce the regular coal produc tion 75 per cent, leaving free only the Reading Coal and Iron company's production of 20.5 per cent of the total ' output of the region, and 5.65 jier cent of the Lehigh Valley's production. ' Should the strike continue .over a period of two months the loss in wages will amount to nearly $10,000,000, loss ', to railroads $20,000,000 and loss to mine operators $20,000,000. . In their demands the miners ask the correction of many evils, the more Important of, which are the following: -Abolition of the company stoics; re- , ductlon In the price o powder to $1.50 - a keg; abolition of company doctors; semi-monthly payment ot wages; abolition of the sliding scale; wages paid la cash; JJ40 pounds to the ton; hat all classes of day labor now receiving $1.50 and not exceeding $1.75 shall receive 15 per cent oyer present wages; that all day labor now receiving $L 5 . shall be advanced, 10 per cent: that no mine shall have at any time more than one breast, gang or other class of work, -and , shall get only his legal share of cars. ' ' 7 The executive board says to the min. era: "Be law-abiding, self-respecting and quiet; do not allow any person, whose interest it may be, to provoke you Into quarrels and violations of the peae. That is one of the most com mon methods used by large employers to destroy public sympathy and defeat our cause.
