They Publish an Address Making * Bid for Public Indorsement of Their Principles. Job Printing. WASHINGTON, March C. — A statement, signed by the members of the executive committee appointed by the bimetallic conference called to meet in '.Vashing-ton February 22, 1S06, lias been published declaring the issue upon which "the new party" styled "The American bimetallic party" will organize. The signers to the call are: A. J. Warner, president American Bimetallic Ifjatfuc. chairman; John P. Jones, oi Xevartu: William 'W. Stewart, of Xevuda; J - . L. Mclvaurln. Souih Carolina: Anson . Indiana: Georxo C. Merrlc, Colorado: Honry Jones. Gcorsla; J. C. Green, California; Joseph Sheldon. Connecticut: C. J. Hilyor, District oi Columbia; Byron ]•:. Shea, Colorado, and Mortimer Whheliond. Xcw Jersey. Tho Dominant II^NUC, The paper isSued by these signers starts out by asserting that the money question is indisputably the dominant issue in the United States. The issue, it declares, "is between the gold standard, gold bonds and bank currency on the one side and the bimetallic standard, no bonds and government currency on the other." The statement in its entirety is an elaborately specified opposition to the single gold standard and a demand for uu immediate return •'to the constitutional standard of gold und silver, by the restoration by this government independent of any foreign power of the unrestricted coinage of both gold and silver into standard money, at the ratio of 16 to 1 and upon terms of exact equality, the silver coin to be a full legal tender, equally with gold for all debts and dues, pub- lie and private." Their views as generalized embody in carefully condensed shape tho vari- oiis expressions of ultra free silver men in both houses of congress during the set-.-iions of recent years and are unalterably opposed to the issue by the United Status of interest bearing bonds in tituo of peace, and demand the pay men t oi ail coin obligations of the United .States, as provided by existing laws, in either gold or silver coia, at the option of the government, and not at the option of the creditor. AA Appnul. With the above as their substantial text the signers address an appeal "from the dictation of the money pou'er to the intelligence and patriotism of the American people." The address advocates and strongly urges unity in tho cause of restoring the biiiH'tiillic standard. This will, the signers of the address aver, "never be won unless those who believe in it como tog-other and elect a president on this one issue." Both of the leading parties of the'oonntry. the democratic party and the republican party, it is insisted, are controlled by the "money power.'' "And," proceeds the call of the bimotallists, therefore, no course seems possible but to subordinate for . the lime being other questions and come tog-ether in a new organization to fight the great buttle of IS'.Ui on the one great issue on which the prosperity and happiness of the people so largely depend." MuNt Como from the People. The inauguration of a movement for relief from the conditions the call describes, the signers to it declare must spring from the people. They continue: ••Pollticliius never institute great reforms, and It wore idle to wait for them. This cause is tlio cause of tho people; and it is believed that it more profoundly concerns the walfaro of tho treat body of the people thim any question slnoo tho civil \vur. it not. Indeed, since our Independence was signed, for on Its ultimate outcoaio the question of a sufficiency or n scarcity of money Is a' question of freedom or serfdom for the mass of the people." The address concludes: "Follow-citizens: Tho power Is st,:ll in your hands to rifht oy the ballot tho great WIOEK o( 1STS, and to save yourselves and your children from tho thraildom which the gold standard policy, if persisted In, will surely bring upon you and them. "We pray you, therefore, not to l«t the settlement of this question go beyond the election of !8i'<!, but subordinating all questions tor the time being to this, tno supreme issue, settle ibis now and nettle it forever, and we especially urge upon you the importance of. Immediate organization In townships and counties throughout the entire country for tho purpose of carrying on this great movement for tho common good of all Joseph Slblcy for President. "It the conference cad authority from the people to name a candidate for president it would namo Joseph C. Stbley, of Pennsylvania, but not having such authority It can only suggest the name and invite expressions from the people by petition, resolutions or otherwise, believing that, nominations when made snoura reflect In tho roost direct manner the will of the people, uncontrolled by caucus machinery or by professional politicians."

They Mn»t Not Scare Delinquent Subicrlb- en bj Holding Op Ilncuboo*. WASHINGTON, March 0. — Assistant Attorney General Thomas, of the post- office department, has made an important ruling in regard to so-called '•newspaper laws." Mr. Thomas decides that a publisher who makes a demand for payment of subscription to his paper through the mails accompanying the demands with a threat of enforcing it by the use of these pretended laws, may be prosecuted for attempting to obtain money under false pretense,- provided he knows that these laws have no existence as laws or as judicial decisions. The so-called laws referred to are those often promulgated by some newspapers to the eilect that subscriptions to a paper cannot be stopped until full payment of arrearage has been made and that a publisher may prosecute in criminal action a subscriber who refuses to take his paper from the office, not having paid full arrearage, or a subscriber who takes a paper and refuses to pay for it. These rules, the assistant attorney general says, have no existence under the law. TORTURED FOR GOLD. Inhuman Trentmi'nt of u" Old Lady by MlMhfld Knbuern.
