Challenges His Opponents to Re election to Discussion of Currency Question. LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 22.—Senate Joseph C. Blackburn has thrown down the gauntlet to those who desire contest his reelection to the Unitec States senate, and boldly invites » canvass upon the currency issue The senator's position on th» silver question has been wel known, but as he had refused to ex press his views through the publi press of the state, the impression had gone forth that he was dodging the is sue. In an interview here, however he emphatically expressed his con tinned devotion to th'e cause of free coinage of silver. He said: CliumploiiH Free Coluare. "I um In favor of opening tho minis of thl: country to tho unlimited coinage of the sllvei metul on an exact equality with gold I um opposed to gold monometslism nnd just ns much opposed to sllvo monometallism; without reservation or evasion I am a bimetallism I want and mean to con tlnuo to Insist upon the use ot both gold nn< silver on oven terms as tho redemption roonej of this country. I would Do glad to see this result brought about by the action of an International conference, provided that could, be done without delay I am opposed to this government' vraltinj for any such conference to act. Our experience with such agencies has not been such as to Rive us either confidence or hope for the attainment of this purpose, I am In favor of the restoration of tho silver metal at the ratio oMdto 1, believing In tholltfht of on experience that covers a century, such ratio will establlih and maintain permanently tho parity between tho two metals. I believe that wo should take this action at the earliest day possible. Independently ot the policies or views of other nations. I have a faith as nbldins In the ability of my country to establish and maintain Ha own monetary system as that which I cherish In Its ability to defend Its own soil from Invasion or Its Institutions from assault. Tho Inxno IB I'liiln. "Let those who will seek to distort and pervert tho Issue pendiap, the effort will fall. Tho American people are not to be hoodwinked or deceived further. They are' at lust thinking, and the result of their Investigation will vindicate the r!(;ht. No employment ot catch phrases will determine tho positive verdict. The people are .rapidly commtr to know that tho Issue before them is not gold monometallism upon tho one side and .silver monometallism on the other, but It is ruthcr a contest between tho advocates of a sini?Io Rold standard upon tho one hand .nr.d those who demand the use ot both sold and silver upou tho oilier.

"llono«t Money l^CdRnc" Fnniird. CHICAGO, April 22. — The "Honest Money League of Illinois" was formed at a meeting of citizens at the Palmer house Saturday afternoon in accordance with a resolution that such a meeting be held, adopted by enemies of free silver at .the Great Northern hotel recently. The promoters of the new organization are W.' T. Baker, Adlai T. Ewing, A. P. = Seeburger, J, W. Richards and John Mayo Palmer. Henry S. Robbins was elected president, and the 1 platform of the organization declared to be ''unalterably in opposition to the unlimited coinage of silver, without international cooperation, at the ratio of sixteen to one." The men who attended and took part in the meeting are for the most part prominent in local business and political circles. Among those present were Postmaster Washington Hesing and ex-Corporation Counsel Adolph Kraus, There were about 150 at the meet- ins:, which was called to order by Henry S. Robbins. Mr. Bobbins explained the object of the meeting, taking good care to emphasize the fact that this was a democratic movement, pure and simple. He said the purpose of the promoters of the league was to resist the prevailing idea which he admitted was rapidly spreading, that free silver is a good thing for this country. Then Adlai T. Ewing as chairman of the parent meeting read the proposed platform which was unanimously adopted as the constitution. Only democrats can become members and all must subscribe to the declaration already given against free sliver. It is provided that auxiliary leagues be formed in every county of the state. Denounced by Gov. Altgild. SPRINGFIELD, 111.. April 22.—In an interview Sunday night Gov. Altgeld denounced the Honest Money league formed at Chicago Saturday. .He says: "They are starting- out under]f»lse colors »cd evince an Intent to deceive, for they know or ouRht to know, that the money system they odvocate is the most dishonest aad damnable that was ever Invented, because It doubled the burdens ot the entire produc Ing classes: it broke down the purchaslnff power of the world and left the laborer -without bread because t&ere was no market for-his products.' These gentle-men also fesotv or ought to know that this •was done at the instance and for the benefit of the bondholdingandsalair-drawinff officials. of Europe and the east, consequently the' name -Honest Money league' must have been adopted because it was calculated to fiecelve tne puoiic.-*-' C The governor closes by sayinir tha the league was formed by federa officeholders, bankers, corporatio: lawyers and "hangers-on.'' Th latter he says are a class o weak men who are trying to hang on to the skirts of fashionable society "They fawn at the feet of the rich, says the governor, "they are numer ous around the club-rooms, and it wa for their benefit that the grammarian invented the neuter gender." The gov ernor thinks a new paper will be es tablished in Chicago and that it wil advocate silver. _ MISS LEITER MARRIED. Chicago HolrciM Become* tho Wlf» Cfrorpro M. Curaon, fli- Y.

Watts' Nephew Suffer for Their Crime. >x wa fiv. in GREENVILLE, Ala., April 22. Information has been received from Butler Springs of the brutal murder of Watts Murphy. He was a nephew of Gov. Watts, of Alabama. He murdered last Wednesday by negroes, who placed his body brush and set fire to the entire heap the body being- consumed. The young 1 man having 1 been missed from home search was began to find out his wheic abouts, when one of the murderer confessed, implicating 1 four cither negroes, all of whom were arrested and heavily guarded. LALpr Development*. MONTfiOMKKV, Ala., April 22.—A Greenville dispatch received here 1 at midnight confirms the lynching of the five negroes mentioned above. It says, however, that the victims of the mob were three women and two men, whose names were Mary Deaue, Martha and Alice Greene, John Rattler and X Galley. A posse of men who had charge of the five prisoners left Butler Springs about 1] o'clock Saturday night to bring them to the jail at Greenville for safe keeping. The route was a lonely one and the trip was necessarily slow. At about o'clock Sunday morning, at a turn of the road, the party was suddenly surrounded by armed men, who seemed to spring from both sides of the road. The posse was covered with Winchesters, and under pain of instant death was halted. Reports say that there were about 100 men in the attacking partjvall heavily armed. They made short work of it. Taking the five ne- groes, they tied their hands and then the shuddering wretches were taken one at a time and were hanged to the limbs of tile trees that lined the road. There is considerable mystery as to the cause of the murder of Watts Murphy, in fact, no two stories from the scene agree. The story is that the negro who' made his escape conceived the plot and that he planned the murder as revenge for an imaginary wrong of a trivial nature. The confession^ iclfrnuplica't'ed'tlie men "ancTwbme'n was full and explicit. BRITISH BOAT FIRED UPON. Two uT Her Seamen Killed by it Sp.intoh. Ship'* Gnn«. HY WEST.
