Coll' Siyoi'ds, sergeant-iit-arriis of'the national committee, in. discussing the probable action of the committee in the matfe'r',of contests, said:' "It,is Impossible for any man to tel! the exact 'attitude ot tho committee toward McKlnley.. In fact, It Is a matter of no great importance, although It Is generally' supposed 1 ' to. be. I am familiar'with r the/ work of the national committee for'the pant JB years, and I defy anyone to cite on instance In which prejudice entered Into the.-aajustment ot a contest. The contests are'sottled, so far as the committee.

Continuing, he said: "I still believe that the silver boom is seeming; rather than renl nnd that the party will be guided to de- chire t'nr sound money when the delegates get together." "What do you found that belief upon?" tiie ivporter-.qneried. "Faith in human j::ituiv lu itl the good •onse oC ATiicrlcans ot the standing that ii're mode- dt'l^prUcs to national contentions. Without cuuilyv.ing 1 the sit- nntioTv'by.stnttjs'I will say .that these aJ- L'H'i-d.'-'silvef -victories have been made such Jjy-'tiie 'newspapers. Everything has Ijepu,' 1 credited to the silver propaganda) and .-nothing; to the factional lig'htsr, 1 wh'ich were the influential and potential factors in mo.st cast's. Good democrats were selected for delegates, Rnd i't'is upon their 1 good sense nnd pa- Irioti^m.thn.t.I found my hopes." "Are there any silver men in the Pennsylvania delegation?" was asked. "I have not heard :d one. Neither have I seen nny delegate quoted dcter- mincd to.bolt in case the platform or candidates' do not suit him, T lind hoped;..that' both -the republican und democratic conventions:, would declare for sound'money so unequivocally that that''''issue would be practically eliminated from the campaign. It does not seem so sure now that the St.. Louis convention will not make some recognition of bimetallism as a distinct possibility which will be !»• the nature of a Rtr'addle. No one has heard of any talk of a bolt from the St. Louis convention, and the snm'e.is the cnse with the Chicago 'convention. Certain newspapers profess to see signs »-d dream dreams irkmt'the split in one or the other convention, but they don't make any delegate's that arc declaring for that step." ' i: 'TO FIGHT THE A. r.
