It caused the enactment of tlie law providing for the resumption of specie payments in 1870; since tb.en every dollar has been as good as gold. "We arc unalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase onr currency or impair the credit of our country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except bj; international agreement with the lead lag .commercial nations or the world, whlcS we pledge ourselves to promote, and until then such gold standard must be preserved. "All our silver and paper currency must be maintained at parity with Bold, and we favor all measures de signed to maintain inviolably the obligations of the United States and all our money, whether eoln_or paper, at the present standard, the standard of the most enlightened nations of the earth.' —Republican platform.

The eonsump- .ioii in 1S02 was heavy. The fanner must admit that ho received in that year high prices for his stock-in-barter. The same families that used his output in 1S92 would gladly today pay him Jcood figures for what he has for sale! They would once move form his ample mi licet. They would again use up SO per cent, of his crops as formerly. .But, the men who wore employed in 1S02 are uinuy thousands of them idle They chai'c against the utter misery of energy forced to loaf. Idle hands can not pass dollars over the counter of Ihe merchant. From the pockets of the unemployed uo metallic music is heard. Give the consumer? work aud Jiv Ins pay, and the problem . oC prices will be solved as it was in 1S02. The amount of money in circulation does not affect prices. If it did the Frenchman would pay higher 1'ates than the German. In fact they fay almost the same prices. Switzerland has a much greater per capita circulation than France, but prices are almost identical in the two cormtries. Mexico has one-fourth the per capita money of the United States, but prices there are much higher than here. . ' Assuming that a free silver law would not affect the money already circulating, Popocrats claim in one breath tliat the Increase In per capita circulation will do much to raise prices and in the next assure the frightened ones 'that the silver product of the United 'States and .Mexico, combined coined free at our mints would ad<; only about ?2 a year to the per capita circulation and that a flood of silver need not be feared. The fact is it would take on avalanche, a torrent of silver to restore In loss than fifteen years, the per capita circulation to Its present figure, should free silver win November 3d. When silver is enthroned gold wll disappear. This Is a law that even -AHgcld can not avoid. In 1S90 the Sherman law, passed foi the coddling of the silver men and to prevent more serious disaster, caused Dho departure of gold. In the three years that white bars were bought am stored; yellow blocks wore shipped ou to the value o£ ,?156,000,000. The sil ver purchased amounted to $147,000 000. If the fear of a descent to a /silver basis will cause such gold ro/it, the actual drop will menu much more. Old men who have been in .the em ploy of the Panhandle for years, have come to us, an'd with tears In thc'n eyes, have said that after constant 1m portunlng they had signed the McTvin ley pledge to get rid of the McKlnleji hirelings.—Pharos.

Do you see it? Tickle a big corporation and a gold bug will scratch." Th« Winnmac Republican says: Special inquiry all along the line elicits the fact that more than five hundred men from Jhe section men up to general manager are prepared to sign a statement that the aiwve is a lie out of whole cloth. They received no "gold" literature nor any kind, saw no one else receive any or saw no one that saw any one else receive any. • The facts of the matter are that the men of the Panhandle force arc not of the kind of laborers that can be arrayed against capital. They recognize the all important point that if it were not for tlie capital invested in the system which, employs them they would be seeking work elsewhere and with every possibility of less than five men In a hundred findtog it. The- interests of capital «nd labor are akin, where one suffers the other feels the effect of the trouble <as well. True there aro corporations ns well as laborers who do not do the proper thing by their opposite but that does not affect the truth of the principle statement just made.

Chicago TJmes-HeraJd (Ind.): The notable'tiling about Mr. McKiniey's front: porch campaign is the preponderance of '.he "creditor classes" in the delwaAi'ous that vi.sit him from day to dny. Who are these creditor classes? Cert.-iinly not the bondholders, bankers, brokers or corporation monopolists, who Mr. Bryan claims aro deter-, ruined to corner the gold In the markets of the world. Xo delegation of linkers have called upon Mr. McKin- k\v at Canton. No goldbug octopus iwis been suinilus his greedy tentacles on Mr.. McKiniey's front porch. The delegations tlii.it have been addressed by tlie Oliio protectionist thus far are composed of laboring men from the shops, the factories, the railway njid the farm. Those arc the "creditor classes." To these men the owners of factories and railways are debtors from week to week. Their interest in Hie maintenance of an honest and stable monetary system and in the restoration of the American policy of protection is premier than that of the millionaire a.nd the banker. That the crowds of .people who visit Major McKinley are largely made np of this class of "creditors" is significant. KILLED BY CIGARETTES. Frankfort Times: The deadly cigarette lias claimed another victim, Chevier Parson, the nine-tcen-year-old son of Mr,?. .Tane Parson, of Colfas.

About a week ago he,was taken suddenly sick, and the attending physician found that it .was due to poison from the-excessive use-of the cigarettes. In spite of all that medical skill could do, the boy continued to grow worse until about midnight Tuesday night when he died. The funeral was held at 2 o'clock yesterday. in a re-cent letter to the manufacturers Mr. W. F.

The medicines referred to are Chamberlain's Congh Remedy, famous for its cures of colds and croup: Chamberlain's Pain Balm for rheumatism, lame back, pains' in the side and chest, and Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di- arrhoea Remedy for bowel complaints.
