COMPARE THEM "The Republican party Is unreservedly for sound money. It caused the enactment of the law providing for the resumption of specie payments in 1879; since then every dollar has been as good as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to every measure calculated .to debase our currency or Impair the credit of our country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except by International agreement with the lead- Ing commercial nations of the world, which 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 .gold, and we favor all measures' de- •Igned to maintain Inviolably the obi 1; gations of the United States and all our money, whether coin or paper, at the present standard, the standard of the most enlightened nations of the earth." —Republican .platform. "We demand the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 16 to I. without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation. We demand that the standard silver dollar shall be a full legal tender? equally Tvlth 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' contract."— Democratic platform. "We demand., free and . unlimited coinage 'of -silver and gold at the present legal ratio of .10. to 1."— Populist platform, 1892. '•'•'''. "We hold to the use -of -both -gold one? silver as the standard money, of the country, and .to the. coinage of both gold and silver, without ^discriminating against either metal., or .cnarge for mintage, but the dollar unit, of coinage Of both metals most Jbe of • eqoaMntrln- slc and exchangeable, value or be adjusted through international agreement or'bysncil safeguardr qf'".legte latlon as shall Insure the maintenance! erf the parity .ot.tbejwometals 1 and the equal powiir of- every, dollar at all times in the markets and In payment of debt, and we demand th'aVaU.paper currency shall be kept at par with and redeem able iu such coin. WE MUST INSIST UPON THIS POLICY AS ESPECIALLY NECESSARY FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE FARMERS AND '-LABORING CLASSES, THE FIRST AND MOST DEFE'NSELES VICTIMS OF UNSTABLE MONEY AND A FLUCTUATING CUR RENCY.—Democratic platform, 1S02. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. The ilrst voter is willing to trust hi ballot to the Ki'puhlican parry. It uev or betrayed such a trust.. It has'kept its promise's. Pledges fulfilled speak for those made for the future. By what else can the voter judge? The Reiiubll win party., will have noue of;-a class measure, It is, and has always boon for the good ol 1 the greatest number Therefore it. stands for'a'dollar that shall bi' as valuable, paid to the work Ingman, as the dollar bundled by the dapper clerk of the 'bondholder. Th very advocates of thy free silver causi by their records ami characters, wins doubts to rise in the cool Luind of the voter. He realiy.es that the country would never turn, iu time of peril, tc TUlmau, Waito or Allgeld, to Peft'er OL Jones, to Bryan ami Watsou-Sowall 'or Sewall-Watspn. Uncle Sam would not ask aid from a section, bin from the whole country. So it is that the at tempt to make Uie issue section against section, docs uot agree with the patri otic' voter's idea of a permanent; and solid Union. Even wi'thout the con vicriou that the plan proposed by Brian is a dishonest and dangerous one the wonder Us not That so many free minded Americans, formerly of other faiths, are coming out .for McKiiilcj but that a few arc holding back. The Popocratlc candidate for Vice President is a targe ship owner, and has accumulated some millions of clol kirs. The "Coast Seaman's Journal' is now after him with a hot stick. This Journal bears the uniou label and consequently cannot be charged with any •partiality against Mr. Bewail. It has issued a supplemental .pamphlet called 'The Red Record," In which It: gives u partial list of the cases of actual vio lencc to sailors on shipboard. Fourteen of the fifty-two cases cited occurred on ships owned by Arthur Sewall <fc Co. One of the most cruel officers, who Is charged with summarily tying up and Hogging sailors, is -a relative of Arthur Sewall, the Popocratlc candidate for Vice-President. The Journal in commenting on these cases says'that Mr. Sewall employs officers who wantonly beat and flog sailors, and that he kept tlie-officers'ln his employ after ho had.knowledge of the Inhuman treatment, and after these officers had bocn before shipping coifcmis- sloncrs aud in the courts on charges of cruelly and inhumanly flogglngysal- lors, Mr. Sow-all is the legitimate and timely candidate of the old slave -driv ers of the South, and this sort oMriu tality will no doubt give additional cause 1 for their enthuiastic support, but for Northern, Eastern 1 and Western work"!ngmen- the cat-'o-nlnc.tails Is not a good bid for votes: Leave the money as it is—It it only a Medium of exchange. Tin changing of it will not make' more business or times better. Why should it? How can you make more actual business by calling six inches a foot, or, if silver would rise to par, by calling a foot a foot? Supply and demand make business. What difference can it make in the demand and supply if vou change the medium of exchange? You can ruin business by making the Medium of exchange doubtful, as free silver would do, but YOU cannot help it that way. IT IS NOT AT ALL PROBABLE THAT THE NEXT HOUSE WILL HAVE A MAJORITY FAVORABLE TO THE FREE COINAGE OP SILVER AT A RATI6 OF 16 TO 1. WHEN IT BECOMES .A DEMONSTRATED FACT THAT THERE IS NO DANGER OF THIS •COUNTRY ADOPTING THE SILVER STANDARD IN CONDUCTING THE BUSINESS OP.

' The price of farm products Js now below the cost of ..production, and the single gold standard .means ruin to farmers.— Pharos. . ... ... .... . . Of course Bourke Cockran. never said this'.

PROSPECTS NEVER BETTER. The Outlook for a Splendid Race Meet ing Is Good—Entries Not All In. The -race meeting of the Logansport Driving association this week, com mencing Tuesday and continuing over Friday, promises to be a.hummer. The entries closed last nigM but they have not all been received by the secretary as yet, and it is impossible to give a list o'f the horses that will contest. Horse owners, especially the owncru of good horses, seldom send in their entries until the last nrinute, and therefore a letter dated on the day the en tries close will not probably be received until tomorrow. A number of the good horses that were in the races at Buntington last week will be .here, several haying been entered and others being p'rbmdsed. The track has been cut out on the turns and dug and scraped, harrowed and rolled until it is to flue shape, and it will be kept so throughout the meeting. Tuesday- will Tie ladies' day. That day all ladies will . be admitted to -witness the splendid sport free of charge. On that day will also occur the county trot. In this race none but Cass county horses, will be admitted. A number of boxes in the balcony have been rented to different parties who will decorate their box with tlie colors of -their favorite. The gen- oral admission tickets are on sale at Morris Fisher's, wMle - reserved ' box- seats in the balcony, are on sale at John C. Dewenter's. DR. GRAY ON WINONA. Thinks it Likely to be Central Rallying PolSnt for Presbytians. .Rev. Dr. W. C. .Gray, editor of. The Interior, the Presbyterian journal of Chicago, hkis been to the Wdnona assembly grounds, Warsaw, Ind., aud thus give his impressions of .rhis new and lovely resort: We hoar that there"Is some question about the ability'.of 'the Winona-assembly to entertain our General Assembly nest;May'.' Mr.'Kane visited WJnoua and published his Impressions in our paper .of last week: The editor bin? since," and for the first time?, visited "this lovely locality for which the church owes a large debt of gratitude to ttie foresight, hopefulness and persistence under difficulties, of the Rev. S. A. Dickey. We do not hesitate to say. :ha.t liereaf ter Wlnona will be the ceh- cburch for conventions. .'Our do not know that we. have .been paying a rental for the use of the church of the Assembly at Saratoga, and a large sum for the trans- porSatioo of the bulk'of. our member-. shi-p to that out-of-the-way ..locality. On the left of .the entrance stands the hotel, a fine building, with a' broad veranda running its whole length, .and whk v h with an .addition now in progress, will-.afford 200 airy, finely furnished rooms. Along the beach are boats used as flower vases—filled with earth and planted.| They look as if ihey Iia-d just come iu with cargos of brilliant blooms. T-hcre are flowers iu profusion everywhere for a half mile along the shore and back to the- bluffs., The top of the bluff has a long row of n.s pre-lity summer cottages as can be' imagined. I-I;dl' way up the bluff is the ledge of springs, pouring out sparkling cold water—a line of them along the bluff s-idc. Automatic hydraulic rams ro.rce.rhe spring-water to all parts of the grounds and buildings. Hidden by the foliage O-HP does not sec the woman's building now partly completed, and which will be finished in November iioxit. This, will contain 252 airy slopping rooms, rind a dining room <;0 by 100 feet. The ladies of fifteen churches have taker) this room in hand. Tlie committee of arrangements will iKive -about 450 sleeping rooms at their command, not collating the over sixty cottages-of which they can obtain, the use. Tho auditorium is.au octagon 90 feet in diameter, and will cou.ta.in 2,000 chairs. At present it is not floored, but covered with tanbairk. This is preferred for its purpose, as it is noiseless. The walls ou the Inside arc unfinished. But one can'easily imagine" 'its boani-iful culpabilities. .It. will be floored and fitted up for-the assembly in a way that will make it a most com- fortJible. convenient, roomy aud handsome hall. Further along on a peninsula, -are fche athletic grounds. There is a swarm of boats of all sorts and sizes on the lake. The furthest point we visited was "Cinciauaitt Hill." An association of Presbyterians from that city have bought fifty lots, selecting a charming elevation, and win build fifty nr.tisWc cottages. Before reach-. ing that jx)int "we passed over the Indian mound, the most remarkable work of that kind iu the State, and one of lihe most remarkable in America. TJie United States government reserved lit, '.and it remains' government prope-nty. It rises to -an '-elevation of forty feet and is crescent—evidently the site of a temple devoted to tlie worship of tile new moon. It is a noble , •and impressive work. We suppose the Ciucimiatians will name'tlie stream that washes tlie feet of their bluff, "Ruby Raver." Tlie water is of a clear ruby color. A canal will,enclose Cincinnati Hill, making It aa island. The sum of Jt te that the general assembly has never before had an. invitation so attractive. The next moderator must be a man of executive ability and.icon •WJH,.,or..-the assembly will dawdle along there all summer.
