FOREIGN AGREEMENT FABOE OVEE Republican ^oldbugs Can No longer Wear the Mask of International Bimetallism. A Palpable Fraud That Deceived Many. Mark Banna's Contract. A meeting of the British cabinet council wa,s held in London to decide what answer should be made to the proposals of the United States through the Wolcott commission on the subject of international bimetallism, says the Kincinnati Enquirer. A London dispatch says that it is definitely known that the cabinet decided to do nothing for silver — not to recommend any change in the reserve of the Bank of England and not to reopen the Indian mints. We are told that this snub is to be administered in a formal reply which .•will be most courteous and conciliatory. And so the stuffed club with \vhich the silver plated Eepublican party has been belaboring the gold standard is no longer even stuffed. Whatever it contained lias beeu let out of it. Let us be thankful tbat the Republicans who are honestly opposed to the gold standard can no longer be used by the gold machine which has leased the Republican party. Let us rejoice that dishonest Republicans, who falsely pretended to bG for silver coinage because it would beac the Republican party to say otherwise, can no longer wear the mask of international bimetallism. Let us congratulate Senator Wolcott that he is now free to take sides between the gold standard party which calls itself Republican and the free coinage opposition to that party. The Republican party pledged itself at St. Louis to maintain the gold standard until bimetallism should be adopted by an agreement between the leading commercial nations. The administration placed in power by that partv is pledged to that policy. It was the form of the contract made and entered into by and between Mark Hanna of the one part and the Wall' street financiers of the other. Will Major McKinley feel himself bound by the promise he made to favor the domination of a British financial policy in this country? Will he interpolate words into the constitutional statement of his duties and make it read that the president shall see that the coinage laws of England are faithfully executed in the United States? Or will he rise above the men who think him their captive and tell them that a bad promise is better broken than kept? Will he tell them that he made an im- crovideac aledse when he csr£ed to to Two things every young housekeeper should have—a reliable cook book and a pure baking powder. We furnish both.

He has promised to the world's Shylocks not the pound of flesh nearest his own heart, but that nearest the heart of every man whose enterprise or necessities have made him a debtor. To make such a oromise was reckless and wrong. It was made under dnress for the accomplishment of a great personal end. To redeem it would be like keeping an agreement to commit a cruna The president's convictions are all against the bargain mad.e for him by Mark Hanna with the manipulators of the Gold trust at St Louis. He can do more for his country now than it has been in the power of any man to do since Abraham Lincoln if he will bravely set aside the wicked compact. Independent bimetallism is the sure road to international bimetallism. So says Professor Andrews, iiiid he says that this is the opinion of the leading bimetallists in Europe. The United States is now their greatest hope. The snare of a foreign agreement has been taken from onr pathway, and it is for the president to §ay whether he will lead the country toward the restoration of the free.and Independent coinage of both metals at once because of the failure of international bimetallism or whether he will lose his opportunity and be overwhelmed by the people in the next presidential election. Whatever the president may do the fraud of international bimetallism was the last political card of the Republican party, and the game is lost. It was a fraud that ought not to have deceived anybody, but did deceive thousands. It ran deceive no more. The farce is over, and the British ministry has rung down the curtain. Shylock will not accept the 8,000 dncats in payment of his loan to Antonio. He will have the pound of flesh, nearest the heart. British creditors in like manner will not have the dollar they loaned, as the honest laws of trade demand- They want a dollar with its purchasing power increased 7< per cent during the last 20 years by corrupt legislation of their procurement ju this and other countries.
