A Few Propositions That Should H»ve Careful Thought. ^Republicans, the last Republican platform pledged the party to endeavor to secure international bimetallism. That plank was a condemnation of the gold standard. To promise to rid the nation of the gold standard is a confession that it is bad. President McKinley asked congress for authority to appoint a commission to visit Europe and ask the leading nations of the old world to help the United States to let go of a gold standard. The commission went to France, and France consented to bimetallism, thereby declaring the gold standard to have tipen injurious to France. The commission went to Germany and found Germany disposed to wait on England. The commission went to England and remained there for three months, hoping for aid. When the government and the Bank of England intimated that England might be willing to make some slight concessions, the bankers of London met in secret session on Sept. 22 and protested. Now the English government has bowed to the •will of the London bankers and refnsed to lend any assistance. Republicans, your party turned over the control of our finances to Europe, Europe turned die matter over to England, England turned the matter over to the London bankers, and the London hankers declared against bimetallism and pledged themselves to secrecy. Republicans, are you willing to allow the London bankers to meet in secret and determine the financial policy of the American people? Republicans, are yon willing to allow the London bankers to meet in secret and control the destinies of the American people? Republicans, are you willing to allow the London bankers to meet in secret and determine the conditions which shall surround your children? Republicans, are you not now ready to join those who favor the immediate restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 16 to 1 without waiting for the aid or consent of iny other nation? — Omaha- World-Herald, Wheatfl«ld» of tie 'Weft. Year after year vast crops of -wheat are taken from the wheatfields of Dakota and Minnesota. In that section grain is more of a crop monopolist than cotton is in the south. "How long can the western soil stand this heavy drain without exhaustion?" asks Rural 2few Yorker. "Eastern farmers who look to manure or fertilizers alone as the chief means of maintaining fertility cannot see how such lands can be kept in fnll yield. Western scientists and farmers believe that the soil itself contains abundant material for hundreds of wheat crops. They expect to make this plant food available by means at careful tillage and the nse of leguminous crops like clover or peas." Wfer Tk«r Don't Sow Winter Wheftt. The excuse made by some fanners why they do noc sow winter wheat is that they "prefer the stubble ground" inquired for wheat' 'for corn growing.'' The Iowa Homestead comments as follows: "If corn is to M grown a« » money crop, it is questrjfttble whether it ia M profitable as wheat production. There is or should be room for wheat in a four or six year rotation. It is a distinctly money crop and requires a great deal of machinery to irrow it" . THE. City National Bank. LottANsroET, IND.
