"We are unalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase our currency or impair tbe credit of our country. "SVe 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- elgned to maintain Inviolably the obligations 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 1C to 1, 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 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' contract."— Democratic platform!

"The Popocrats have insisted that anything less tha.n 20,000 in Maine was .H Popocwitic victory. That would be a queer sort of victory when the State only gave 12,000 plurality in 1802, but how does 70,000 strike them? Is that enough ? The fact is that if the sound money voters iu Indiana and other states keep diligently at work the free silver craze •and flntism of all kinds will be crushed out. forever and the United States-will stand at the head of all nations. The principle of popular government will be established permanently. Repudiation will be dishonorable and the national credit nnd the credit of -the people of the nation as a whole will be forever beyond question.

Charles Bates, United States deputy surveyor, has left with a party of assistants for the Rosebud Indian reser- vrftion, where he has a surveying con- tifact that will keep himself and men bfisy until late in the faJl. Many of the tiidians on that reservation have ex- ptessed a desire to receive allotments if land iu severalty, and large tracts of 1ifc reservation are being surveyed with his object in view, it being the policy of the Indian bureau to allot lands to Indians as 'speedily as possible. The Indians on the Pine Eldga reservation are an exception to those on other portions of the Sioux reservation, as none of theru haB yet indicated a willingness •o receive, their allotments. This is rincipally for the reason that Red 'jpud, their ag«d and respected chief, Isr opposed to the allotment system;and ;4 deference to his wishes but f e-w allot- vfill be made to tho Indians dux- is lifetime.

Although the United States contains some of the moat famous electricians ju tlie world, il-e-.ieo has taken the trouble to send ail the way to Switzerland forbids on the construction of electric lighting in the City of Mexico. Consul Germain, of Zurich, Switzerland, says: "In the official commercial organ (Feuille Officiellc Suisse du Commerce) I noticed that, the consul of Mexico stationed in this city sent a communication to the editor of the paper wherein he states that the authorities of the City of Mexico are about to introduce electric lighting and invites bids Irom Swiss firms engaged in. the manufacture of electric appliances and willing to enter into a contract to put in the plant. He stated thatupon application to him by correspondence or by a cable at his office he will submit plans nnd specifications and also furnish. de»tailed information as to just what is required." Consul Germain quotes another instance where a -western republic sent to Europe for a similar purpose. "While crossing the ocean to return to roy post I. met a'Haytian from Port au 1'rince. He stated that be had a concession from t-he anthorities-of his native city to sugply it with electric lights. Be was on his wcy to Europe to see -wjiere Jie could get ±be.best plant and appurtenances f or He teasfemoney. A prominent Frenchman engaged in the coffee business near Port au Prince confirms what the concessionaire told me." ' FRAM STOOD THE -JCE WELL. Her Ilmbew Not A««cted by th« Tr«- meDdoun Freuurefe.

The dispatch eaya: "The ice pressure was never as severe as upon several occasions before Dr. Nansen left us. During June, 1896, we were regularly exposed, however, to violent pressures, caused by €he changing- spring tide. The Fram was once or twice lifted from six to seven feet. Her bottom become visible as it rested on the ice. So little effect did this have on the Fram timbers that the men continued their slumbers' undisturbed. An easier arctic exploration one could hardly imagine. The principal work was to take regular observe/, tions, sleep nnd eat. The health" of the men was perfect during the entire expedition. There was not a sijrn of scurvy apparent among any of the men. " 'When the efforts to advatce the sBIp through the ice by the force of steam or a process of warping- failed, it \va« found that gun cotton mines proved the best' means of shattering the Ice. As a rule very high ice floes prevailed, FO extensive that their termination could not be discerned, even by the telescopes. Often it looked like a hopele«s task to break our way out of the ice foot, but with the liberal use of the explosives and owing to the peculiar construction of our boat, we flnony succeeded." —Since the beginning of this century the use of the Italian language has, greatly increased; in 1801 it was spoken. jy 15,070,000 people, and in 3890 it-wns ised by 33,400,000.
