Baldwin of this L-ily are well known. He favors a tariff for revenue, and four yuars ago left the Ropiiblican .party on account of ils lilgli tariff policy and voted \vith-tho Democrats, Ho 'has just as radical views on the financial (liiost.ion and the-frru Kilvet-'coinage nt- titude of the Domocrats has.evidently caused htm vo-viow with greater alarm an attack on I hi', monetary system of tho fc.nniiti'y from (hat direction than to appivhoud evil results • from a 'high tarill' policy. Tlie following, special from Delphi indicates tin; position of Judge Baldwin ou the Qiie'sfiuii: Dolphl. Inil., Juiii 1 25.—A free'silver picnic has boon advorlisod at Itoclc- liold, eight miles oast of tills city, for next Saturday.. La.rge bills .hav.u..been ])ostod all over tlie county and a groat ctTont is being made to got out a crowd. Among those \vlio /ire advertised to «].io:tk arc Hon.. A.nson Wolcott,. of White OUIII.IT, who is largely, interested in silver mines in Colorado, and Hoti. D. P. Baldwin, of Logituspart. Tho mat- tor was called to Judge Baldwin's .attention by a citizen of this city last Saturday, and Judge Baldwin stated it was the first Jnfoniia-tlou he had-that liu was to bo one of the'orators. In -a letter, to the editor of the'Journal; of. tlits 1 'city. Judge, Baldwin, tttys: ., "I-shall support no froo-ooiaiugL>.tuiu>.- or party. If the Democrats, make u fro.o-.coiiiago platform , at Chicago, as now. seems likely, J shall support Mc- Kiuley and sound money. As between high 'tariff and sound money on the one hand and free silver and tho present tariff ou tho other hand, I prefer to t,-ike my chances with tin: former." Judge Bald-win has .lost .'no time in eomibathig the arguments of the free- silver people, and he states In his letter thai but for the. fart thnt.hu will leave Wednesday for Now York to-be'away one month, .ho would attend the Rocjc- IIeld meeting, a* lie has been advertised, and give tho pe/plo-1 hero assembled his opinion of the proposition to visit -ou tills country flic free- and unlimited c'Olnago of silver. A reporter -for Tin; Journal 'called at the residence of Judge'Baldwin yesterday afternoon but was. Informed 'that lie and Mrs, Baldwin had gone to Now York, to bo absent a month. ., . 4'udianapolis, lud., Juno 10, 1S9G. The silver question has cut quite a figure in Indiana polities recoutty. For a 'time 'It"did not appear that there would bo any serious differences on tills question. The actual loaders of- the Democracy, men who by active service stood for) party and parly organization, were almost to a man in favor of sound money. But when tlie cnr/.e broke forth Governor M-j.t'tliows cut luosn rro'hfjjiis sound money friends and gave tli'o-'irjovement for free silver an Im- jietnsAw-hicul.swept control of the party and the party organization from tlioso who wore attempting to moor the ship of. Democracy iu safe waters. Following Governor MaltlittwsVs Atlanta lolwr declaring for free silver came Tillman into- the State and an effort was made by the ..free silver Democrats to.'unite Populism and Democracy. To the credit o'f the Populists this offer of fusion was indignantly rejected aud each party will have separalo State and county tickets. Yet in this si'tnai'iou there is an undi.'i'- curreut whicfi gives confidence in thy preference of the people for sound money. It was in 1S72 tho expediency people'of-the Democracy got control of tho party organization. Horace Grscley was the Democratic craze at • thti't time. Ho was to sweep ilio cottn- try carrying Democrats a.ud liopubli- •caiis along witli him. The straight out Democrnls,-those who had faith in their parly, wlio IX'licvi'd that its mlssio-u was 'to accomplish some well defined purpose, though forced to silence during the nom'iuation, Inter spoke in HO uncertain '(onus and by their argument, aud iiitlueucc registered for Democracy the must disastrous defeat in its history. The situation is m>t dissimilar at tin; proseri-t ti-m-c.. A great many Democrats arc not si.viuig much but doing a good doal of thinking. A prominent Democrat: said to mo: "It Is a recognized fact however strong the endorsement for free silver in November might bo it would bo at least a year before, n silver bill could bo passed. Every existing obligation duo or falling duo in that year would havi; to bo paid. If there •was sufficient confidence in (lie ability of the debtor there would be a bare possibility Chat the obligation could be renewed in a gold contract; But the gread'r probability would bo that every man'having iiivesv.nM.mts of. that sort would prefer to see ills cash.

They know that their day's wages will remain practically the same for several years but that they will be paid in a currency having about one-half the purchasing .power, should the doctrines of the tree silver rnou prevail. "Gradually the truth' is gaining ground that whatever dignity, the government of the United States would give to a free silver dollar, to whatever extent it would increase In v.ilue in an effort'to catch up with the fleeting gold It would benefit the silver mine owners. •Were they confined to the United States alone the free silver legislation would be a; generous act on the part of the government to a favored few wealthy mini; man whoso paper Js refused by his neighbors gets along without credit, but this is not a very creditable attitude for a nation aspiring to be greatest commercial nation on the face of the earth. And the sentiment in favor of a safe currency will control llie November elections." Tliis scorns sound. Tlio Republican idea is .not one of unjust restrictions either in lite character or the volume of the current'}'.' The Republicans believe In bimetallism. They believe in the generous use of silver. They believe in the use of it to the extent that it can bo without impairing the stability of the government. They believe in its use to the extent it is not an impairment of existing contracts. They do not believe in repudiation, national or personal. They do not: believe in legislation for the bo.neli't of mine owners or of bond holder* or of land owners to tlic injury and at the expense of any oilier class. They do not believe-in class legislation. Upon this platform they will stand in the coming campaign. w. s. w. A BOLD ROBBER. Visits Apartments- in Daylight-Escapes With Cash.
