If all our gold and •11 «r were coined Into money not near enough currency would ? be created to supply the demands of business. __ INDIANAPOLIS Is to try the Plngree potato patch plan . A number of the rich residents of the Capital City have signified a willingness to pro- Tide the land required. People out of employment will be gi?en an opportunity to till the land and will be given all they produce from it. MAYOR PENNOYEU, of Portland, Oregon, was requested to name delegates to attend the Indianapolis monetary conference. He telegraphed Chairman Banna the following characteristic reply: "Will send no representative. ¥avor silver dollars, not national tank rags. Congress.not yourselves, can legitimately act You should disperse." THE Republican party must take affirmative action on the money question,. It promised to do so In the campaign of 1896. Secretary Gage Is trying to carry out the will of the party. He favors the permanent establishment of the gold standard, the retirement of the greenbacks and refunding of the national debt making all bonds payable in gold. The republicans in congress must either approve or repudiate Gage's plan of currency reform. To repudiate it means a repudiation of the administration. To reject it means that there will be no affirmative legislation by the present confess. __ Have the Republican* Surrendered? There will be but one party of sound money In 'the next national election, and Us candidates will receive the votes of those who last year Toted for Palmer and Buckner, as well as tbhose who supported McKUi- ley and Hobart. —Journal. If this be true it means that the Eepnblican party has surrendered to the gold Democrats. In the last campaign the followers of Mark Hanna were led to believe that the Republican party would get rid of the single gold standard just as soon as England would permit. For a time it looked as though England would kindly consent. On March 17, 1896, the English house of commons by a unanimous vote passed a resolution calling upon the English , government to do all in its power to assist in the re-establishment of the bimetallic standard. The first lord cf the treasury, Mr. Balfour, declared that the passage of this resolution was a notice to the United States of a willingness to assist in the restoration ol silver coinage. Early in 1897 one of the most important petitions that WHS ever presented by the labor intereb'&s to the English government went up to Lord Salisbury from 350 •labor organizations of England, com- priding all trades, begging the government to follow out the expression of parliament of March 17, 1896. Fifteen hundred of the manufacturers and merchants ond tradesmen of the Royal Exchange of Maanchester •ent up a like memorial to the English government and crowning It ah came the report from the royal commission on the depression of agriculture. Ten men out of fourteen, appointed without reference to the money question, after careful consideration of condltlous and remedies, declared that the depression of agriculture m England was due to the fall in prices; that the fall In prices was due to the appreciation ol gold, and that the appreciation oi' gold was due to the de- monetization of silver, and that the only remedy which would prevent ultimate bankruptcy for the agricultural interests of England was the restoration of the par of exchange between gold and silver Dy international agreement and that commission urged tee government of England to do all in Its power tc bring about that result. But the money power of England, encouraged by men like Secretary Gage, threatened the producers and manufacturers of England with ruin r If uhe attempt to restore ^silver was carried further. Before the Wolcott commission visited England, the gold conspirators had forced the government to abandon its willingness to assist lu restoring silver. How, what will the Bepubllcans do if England refuses to help as get rid of the gold standard? Will they join tho gold Democrats In the effort to permanently establish the single jtindard? If the Republican party In What Does Woman's Beauty Consist Which So Powerfully Attracts Men? It Is Not the Pretty Face Which Charms, but the Bright Eyes, Glowing Cheeks, Vigorous Vitality and Exuberant Spirits. This Hint to Wise Women Is Sufficient. Beauty lies less in the features than In the condition and expression of the face. The Creator has endowed every woman with beauty.and every woman in good health, who is of a cLeerful nature, is beautiful and cumeiy to look upon. A clear, fresti wtioJe- some look in the result of the possession of good health, and no woman can be beauti- f ui and a&tract/lve without good health. Tbe dull, dead, gnawing pain, the sense of nervousness, weakness, oppression and discouragement, the tired, listless,languid feeling, the shooting pains, toe aching head, the pain in the back, all these are symptoms of a disordered system, and all these are beauty killers, producers of dull, leaden complexions, unnatural flush- ings, dark circles under the eyes, black heads, lustreless eyes and other disfigurements which divest women of their natural gift of beauty. Why be homely when you can be beautiful and attractive? Get good health and with It those looks and attributes which attract, please and fasclnatiS. It Is within your power to do so, lor it is within every woman's power to be well and strong, and'hence look her best, if she will use Dr. Greene's Nervura to give her strong, vigorous nerves, pure rich blood, a clear complexion, and thus restore the energies and vitality of sound and perfect health. Bead what Dr. Greene's Nervura does for others. It will do the same for you. Mrs. Mary Francis Lytle.of 2 Hunter Alley, Rochester, N. Y., says: "I was very pale and delicate— had no color. I took Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy, and now I am well and strong, my face fs plump and cheess red, and my complexion pure."' Mrs. 'William Bartels, 2d9 East 87th Street, New York City, says: "Dr. Greene's Nervura made a wonderful improvement in my health, and that dark, sallow look left my face. My friends hardly knew me. I have gained In flesh and am like a different person." Mrs. C. S. Allen, of 123 Pearl St. Portland, Me., says: "There was hardly any more color in my face and hands than in chalk. Dr. Greene's Nervura made me well and restored my natural color and eomplex- iou." Mrs.Elizabeth Brown of 236 Hartwell's Avenue, Providence, R. I. says: "My face broke out with pimples, and I is almost giving up despair when I 'got Greene's Nervura. Now am well and strong, thanks to this wonderful remedy." Mrs, S, R. Berry, of Lebanon, N, H., writes: "Dr. Greene's Nervura has done wonders for me. I am strong again, and have got back my former looks and good color. A doctor met me a few days ago and said that I was doing wonderfully, that my eyes were bright, and that 1-looked well? These are only a few of the thousands upon thousands of women who owe their present health and strength, and consequently their beauty, vivacity and enj )yment of life to the the timely use of Dr. Greene's Nervura, and if the reader is wise, she will not hesitate or delay using this really' wonderful remedy, this great natural boon to womankind. If desired, Dr. Greene, 148 State St.,•Chicago, 111., the most success- specialist in curing nervous and chronic diseases, can be consulted absolutely free of charge, personally or by letter. ! w . does combine with the Pilmer-Buckner parDy, how many Republicans who believe in bimetallism will follow it? In such an event it is likely that there would be more deserters than followers. The. latest report from McKlnley is that he is still for bimetallism. Gage, his secretary of the treasury, is still for gold. Which will yield? ' One Way to Travel. Probably the champion fakir of the day, an honest and worthy fakir, too, is M. E. A. Lasley, the man who with his family has crossed the American continent in a wagon, or "house on wheels," as he prefers to call it He supported his family as he went along, visiting the leading places of interest in a territory extending from San Francisco and Texas on the south to Chicago and Buffalo cm the'north. The journey began March 22, 1894, at Port Angeles, on the strait of Joan de Faoa, 100 miles northwest of Seattle, It reached its chief stopping place thi) 1st of January, 189S, in New York city. Not that it ended there. Lasley must be the reincarnation of the Wandering Jew, for he says he is going still on, and that the house on wheels and tho tow headed children and the dog will turn up at the Paris exposition in 1900. The only concession he will make to the conventionalities •will be involved in the necessity of crossing the Atlantic in a ship instead of a wagon. Undoubtedly this original American family will make a holy show rolling »lciig over the smooth highways of France in their unique homemade vehicle. The bouse on wheels was built by tlia versatile Lasley himself. It is of cedar clapboards and is 6 feet high and 12 feet king. It has a stove in one corner and caa be divided into two compartments. The clapboard walls are lined with cloth and heavy paper. Two babies have been born to the couple in tbiar house on wheels. The plan of campaign was this: tax- ley is a jack of all trades, and wherever he is can "turn his hand" to almost anything. Mind reading appears to be the lowest depths he reached. When he stopped in a neighborhood, the queer outfit always attracted a crowd. Then Lesley's eloquence prevailed- He succeeded generally in getting -work of same sort, either at farming or at some miiichanical tinkering. Besides that he always had on sale his little book, the history cif his travels and photographs of the outlandish rig and the whole family. In selling these he sometimes took iflinonei.%J^the_r»ta of,"*_daUar * minute." Not the least attraction was the tow headed children peeping like birds out of the little window in' the wagcm and displaying a radiance of complexion and health absolutely dazzling. Many a millionaire would"give untold sums to have his pampered children look like the Lasley young ones, In California the family lived awhile on grapes and green walnuts—"very good food," writes Lasley, "but after two weeks it elides," Naturally it would "elide." The house on wheels traveled 6,606 mile's on its journey from Port Angeles, Wash., to New York cityi Lasley says he never shoes his horses in summer, and they never get tender footed. It is necessary to be truthful, however, and say that two pairs of borss have succumbed to the arduous lacors of hauling the iasleys by crisscross routes over this continent and have lain down and died. Was it because they had no shoes in summer? Some of the fakir's observation of travel are gems in their way. He says in & little descriptive pamphlet that during the uo-rlv four years they have been on their journey the Lasleys have been invited to attend church only six times. Of California he writes, "Ranchmen are close fisted, they believing a poo; 1 man a curse to the earth—better be dead." Of Texas, "Texas people are the most religious we ever met, also the poorest." Do the two facts belong together. Again, "It causes us to smile to see lie pomposity of some city officials.'' Many another has had occasion to remark the same. Lasley is a spare man with a fresh complexion and a, shrewd, bright eye. It i/s said the people of New York city thought he really might have put on a clean shirt when he reached their town and not worn the same one in which he started from Seattle. Still, New Yorkers are ape to be oversensitive in these lit tie matters. Somehow ac this distance it looks queer that the Indian national congress, BO called, of Great, Britain is to erect at a cost of $5,000 a monument in London expressive of gratitude TO the people of the United Kingdom for their generosity in subscribing to the famine fund of India. The so allied Indian congress would be in much better business if it would take the $5,000 and spend it as far as it will go im establishing schools among the hapless, benighted population of India itself, •where the native princes themselves seldom know how to read; <)f ill systems of discipline, domestic, educational or political, the spy syijtem fa the -worst. The spy -is -infinitely Meaner than the one spied on. . i, COMBINE FOR SILVER Concluded from 1st P»,»w (ind a prospective settlement ota-clainor for a new party. A majority of the national comraittee has expressed itself in favor of a:n early conference for adjusting all difficulties and outling a policy for 1900. The leaders of the middle- of-the-roacl element expressed themselves as desirous that the work of reorganization he conducted strictly wlth- !ln the party, so as to merit the approval •Df the national committee. HoloDinVs Idea of Houie Rule. Lincoln, Neb., Jan. 15.—Governor Hoi- comb in a communication to the press •yesterday warmly criticises the opinion rendered by District Judge Scott in the Omaha metropolitan police bo<inl controversy. The findings of Judge Scott, he says, make every person, municipality and court a law unto themselves, and that Ibis is nothing more nor less than anarchy. Governor Holcomb maintains that the law giving- the governor power to appoint the police board is a good law. Judge Scott holds it unconstitutional. Fennoyer's Advice to Financiers. Indianapolis; Jan. 15.—The monetary convention, to meet here this month, has beer advised to disperse by Sylvester pennoyer, mayor of Portland. Ore. The committee sent an invitation to Pennoyer asking him so see that delegates were sent to the convention and rceivc-d the following reoiy: "Will send no representatives. Favor silver dollars, not national bank rags. Congress, not yourselves, can legislatively act. You should disperse." NOW AT WORK ON THk SCALE. Mine Workers' Committee Recommends an Advance of Teu Cents. Columbus, O., Jan. 15.—The XTnited Mine Workers' convention had a lively executive session yesterday afternoon, considering the report of the scale committee. Before the committee reported the convention went into executive session and the proceedings were guarded with the utmost sfecrecy. The committee recommended that an advance of 10 cents per ton be demanded in the price of mining, and that the differential of 9 cents per ton between the Ohio and Pittsburg districts be maintained. There was a. lively debate over the question of the differential, the Pittsburg delegates opposing it. The convention adjourned for the day without taking any action on the report.

About one person in every four suffers from some form of rectal disease. The most common and annoy-1 Ing Is Itching piles, Indicated by warmth, slight moisture and Intense, uncontrollable itching in the parts affected. The usual-treatment has been some simple ointment or salve, which sometimes give temporary relief, but nothing like a permanent cure can be expected from such superficial treatment. The only permanent cure for itching piles yet discovered is the Pyramid Pile Cure, not only for itching piles, but for every other form of pile^ blind, bleeding or protruding. •'The first application gives Instant relief and the continued use for a short time causes a permanent removal of the tumors or the small parasites which cause the intense itching and discomfort of itching piles. Many physicians for a long time supposed that the remarkable relief afforded by the Pyramid Pile Cure was because it ^was supposed to contain cocaine, opium or other similar drugs, but such is not the case. A recent analysis of the remedy showed it to be absolutely free from any cocaine, opium, or in fact any poisonous, Injurious drugs whatever. For this reason the Pyramid Pile Cure is probably [the only pile cure extensively recommended by physicians, because it is *o sale, so prompt in the relief afforded and so far a 1 ) known the only positive cure for piles except a surgical operation. In one year the Pyramid Pile Cure has become the best known, the safest and the most extensively sold of any pile cnre before the public. Nearly all druggists now sell it at SOcts and $1 per package.
