AT WASHINGTON. «!rover Cleveland'* Anti-Silver Ibr tlic J»rCKldciicj'. "W'tvH Street und the liuporrcrs Inspiration. Via It JBcnr money nnd Clitap Good* atu labor—ilnrrlKon'K Surprise. THAT I.ETTEH. DEAK JOURNAL:—The event in polit r * call circles here and throughout the .•country, last week, was the an ti-silvei letter of Grover Cleveland. I put i ••anti-silver" instead of "anti-free • --coinage" advisedly, as it is well-known '-. that Grover is a "Gold bug" of the ; yellowest possible complection and has no use for silver in any possible shape, except as a -subsidiary coinage"—the '"small change" of business. He wants cheap goods and dear money—• cheap labor and "solid" finances. He . . is an Englishman through and through, an outcropping of "old blood" that would make him worthy of a Dukedom in Her Majesty, Queen Victoria's dominions. On its face this letter'of the tin-god of tha Mugwumps expresses, "the courage of his opinions." It Is an utterance closely akin to his Cobden Club inspired free trade message. , But behind it and him, may be discovered the cunning hand of Wall street greed. The speculators and importers of the commeicial metropolis 'have made Grover, and they own him. In the ~ "chapter of ac- oidents" they calculate that possibly, ',-. foolish Republicans may be induced at this session to pass the free coinage Senate bill, for which so much of true Republican principle has been sacrificed upon the .altar of local greed, and so leave Cleveland iu 1892 clear of that question and strong in the <J financial'centers." Failing the passage of the free coinage bill by this -Congress It can be passed in. the next one-very early and easily, and so be remov.ed 'from Grover's path to success, and-the ultimate : triumph'o'f the gold- bugs in the ^repeal, after his election, of the free coinage act. • The cunning of Satan; not the ponderous pretended hones'ty of ' ' the - gigantic "fraud or Wall-street's trial, was-the inspiration of G'rover's letter. The letter, however, has changed the situation here very materialy. The Republi- .-cans "smell a mouse" in it. The -Democrats are confused by it. So it appears that retiribution has speedily overtaken the sell-out of the Republican Senators in Congress and the corrupt troason of Don Cameron, The Judas with his thirty pieces of silver in his pocket may now very properly ,go out and hang himself. But the Republican p»,rty is not and must not be an enemy of silver. It must be an enemy of Wall street and the Goldbugs. It must be in favor of cheap money and the largest possible earnings of productions. It has shown its friend- ffcship to silver, the money of .the people, in the splendid legislation that is now slowly but surely bringing that money to the front in our finances. It is willing to go further in the same direction and bank upon the product of silver in this country, issuing cer-. tificates; dollar for dollar, at a good Irpriee for ever ounce of silver produced ||;in'''ttiis ; country. This is the true strAmerican policy as the Republican .party, in all its policies, is . .the true American party. We pro- silver- coinage for our own profit- p^able us. Why should we swamp it |y<4inder the competition of the silver of ^"ythe world? Why should we put the '^profits of a rise of twenty- Shree cents an ounce in the three ^-thousand millions of the world's sil- feTrer into the pockets of foreigners and £-aoJbankrupt ourselves, when we can our own silver as gold in add- I'iing to the currency of our country? Thus the silver question draws the |: lines of the tariff question. Free coin- like free trade, invites the dis- iSastrous competition of the "rest of mankind." The coinage of American lisilver, on a gold basis, will make |f;inoriey plenty and cheap without de- jgbasing it It will hurt the Wall"street bugs and. their prophet and tapostle, Grover Cleveland, but it will "for the people"—a policy in line Abraham Lincoln's ideal Repub- jflican government ' 'of the people, for |the people *nd by the people." Issues shaping for 1892 very satisfactorily to me. IS IT A SDKI'KISE. . President Harrison still has the irn- ||portant question of the appointment of |'a Secretary of the Treasury "under ^consideration." The thirty day law m ample time, and the public 0eems to have concluded that *fgossip with so much margin would not 'interesting. -.So the subject has ^dropped almost out of sight, but I iaye a notion that "Our Ben" is preparing a surprise for the country in iis.socret incubations upon this un|hatched egg. The appointment will very significant in its bearing upon the..'financial question, and may be rery intimately connected with the rebult of the next Presidential contest. A GOOD JOG. The Civil Service Cornmision, which seems to be disposed to arrogate imperial powers to itself received a jog in the House of Congress the other day that ought to be forerunner of things to come. The Commission, in the organic law providing for its existence, was a mere board, subject for its assistance to the heads of departments: In its arrogant assumptions it has managed to declare its independence of the departments and set up for itself. In the last Congress it secured appropriations for its bureau and, emboldened by its success, demanded more this year. This demand was met, for a time, by a refusal that would have clipped the wings of this soaring nuisance but the House, after voting its contempt for the fraud, and usurpation of this Mugwumps Baal, weakly yielded to the most of its grab. The vote showed a majority of three to one against the Commission, just as it would show before the people. The party that has the, :ourage to strike and destroy this three men power in the land will score strong point before the people, iivil Service Reform is one thing. The arbitrary and insolent Commission .hat represents the "reform" is quite another. It is an English an'd Monarchical excresence that is utterly at war with our American self government. As a point of attack in future olitical battles I hope the Republi- an party, while adhering strictly to he essence of the best -possible civil ervice, will insist uponj the wiping ut of the civil service commission. PASSING ATVAV. The Government clerks are an important factor in the National tributes of- respect at the Capital, and hence are assigned a good many days of leisure on'account of national mourning and other testimonials. This week, on account - of the death of ex-Secretary, of the Interior, Stuart, of President Fillmore's Cabinet, and of Admiral Porter, we'are to be off duty from.Monday at noon until Wednesday morning, and, I -suppose, another day will be given later to the mempry of General Sherman. Then next Monday will come [the observance of Washington's birthday. In this work-a-day world the loss of so much time may seem to be a waste to the unsentimental utilitarian, but it is not [a, loss to the nation. The honor paid to high worth and achievements far more than compensates for the loss of time. It is the work they have done in the service they have rendered to their country, rather than the men who did it, that is thus held up to the attention o.f the people, Admiral Porter and General Sherman, like Grant Sheridan, Farragut, Washington, Lincol and Perry, are illustrious examples of American citizenship we can well afford to magnify at any cost of time and money. PERSONAL AND OTHERWISE. The next room to mine in my boarding house is occupied by Hon Ewrit, of North Carolina, and his family. fie is probably the last Republican member of Congress who will represent the Tar Heel State for some years to come. The meeting of the National Association of the veterans of the* war with Mexico has been postponed until the meeting of the next Congress, at which the ' 'old boys" propose to make an effort for a pension of §12 a month. The address of Samuel Gompers, in Logansport, was an able and admirable presentation of the value and de- mands-oi labor organizations. As a life-long wage worker, outside oi any labor union, I subscribe my assent to every point of its argument and plea, and declare my purpose, as one humble Republican to' do what I can to put my party in line with the demands of the Federation of Labor. I have worked sixteen and seventeen hours a day, and at other times have done more and better work in seven or eight hours, but no individual experience can be a guide in. such matters. The wage worker will find his own level, but the law, like that which gives him the seventh day for rest, should limit his compulsion to eight 'hours. This limitation is only a part of the share of the progress of our civilization, nearly all of which progress has been won by labor, that is due to 'labor. Protection of our home markets, 'of our silver products and of our labor wages naturally includes the protection of our labor from unjust exactions upon its time. The party, that years ago passed the homestead law, destroyed slavery and stands against pauper labor will not be backward in- comprehending and adopting the sound theories of such 'labor representatives as Samuel Gompers. ..''..

Women Huve It In Their powev to Bring thft jVI'en-rp to a MIfflier Sf.itmlitrd of •t-iviiij-.-• Bless the girls, how I love them: To me they are the sweetest tilings in the world, with .their fresh young' checks and bright eyes, laughing- anil chatting 1 simply because their hearts are so fuJl of fun and talk that it just bubbles over. They can do more with those merry smiles and winning looks than \ve old women ever ean, though blessed with the wisdom of female Solomons, or the guile of serpents, and it is to them that •we look for opposition to the evil in the TVOrld, and the encouragement of the good and fulling-. If only the girls would band together and frown upcn •the wrong-doers, and persistently refuse to smile upon their misdeeds, what a reformation all over the country there •would be! If the pretty sweetiieartswould refuse to laugh at the mocking 1 words yoxirg- men of our day think so clever, when directed against religion and the good old ways oiir grandparents de-lighted JV, there would soon be an end of such scoffing. If our youths knew that the bright eyes would look coldly OB them when the rumor gathered ground that they were "gay," would they not guard their reputation as a jewel of great price? Let the girls regard a drinking man as a pest-infected one, and no more think of receiving such into their homes, and we will have no-marriages in opposition to parents, no broken-hearted women shielding drunken husbands from the world's censure, no going-hack to father with sad-eyad little children to care for when sharne is open and it is no longer possible to hope for reformation. All the girls have to do is to set up a standard, with a determination to live and die by it, and men will come up to it, never fear. If you are content with a low type, then shut your eyes and be as complacent as you please; but if you want a good husband, and, by and by, good sons, set your face firmly against the weak and vicious. You are afraid,you will frighten the men away by such severity and prudishness? Xo, you will not-—at least, it will frighten away only such as you are better off without their admiration and love, and men whose opinion is wouth having-, and whom you would really care to many, if you are the wise, well- regulated young woman I take you for, will honor you for your common sense and prudence, and know you for the very wife they want—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Be Sure If you have mado up your mind to buy Hood's Sarsaparilla do not bo induced to take say other. Hood's Sarsaparilla is a peculiar medicine, possessing, by virtue of its peculiar combination, proportion, and preparation, curative power superior to :iny other article. A Boston lady who knew what she wanted, and- whose example is worthy Imitation, tells .her experience below: To Get "In one store where I went to buy Hood's Sarsaparilla. the clerk tried to iuduce me buy their own Instead of ITooti's; he told me thetr's would last longer; that I might take It on ten days'trial; that) I did not like it I need not pay anything, etc. But lie could not prevail on me to change. I told him I knew what Hood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken It, was iatlsfiedwith.lt, and did. not want any other. Hood's 'When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla I-was feeling real miserable, suffering a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak that at times I could hardly stand. I looked, and had tor some time, like a person in consumption. Hood's Sarsaparilla did me so much good that I wonder at myself sometimes, and my friends frequently speak of It." MBS. ELI.A A.

Chattanooga and Nashville, in connection with prominent banking firms in New England, have formed a. company to be kr.o-wn as the Corporation of Dayton, for the sale of town lots, the establishment of industrial enterprises, etc. It is an assured fact that within six months Dayton will have another railroad from the bouth-east, which will rnake it an important junction and transfer point for nearly one-fifth of the freight and passenger traffic between the Great North-west and the South-tast. In addition to this it is located on the Q; and C., one of the largest and most important of the Southern Trunk Lines.
