GRACE 426 BROADWAY, WASHINGTON, May 0.—Senator Jones, of Arkansas, is among 1 those who believe that the international monetary conference will be held during the present year to consider the relationship of silver to gold ar, a money metal. He is one of the members on the part of the senate chosen to attend the conference in case ons is called, and has naturally kept truck of all that has been done in the matner. He said, in discussing the probalili- ;ies, that while Germany had not, to his knowledge, issued an executive call lor u conference, the action of the reichstag had been accepted B8 official by the governments of the United States, France and Great Britain, and added that he did not 'believe the executive authorities of the German empire would allow their country to conclude that she had been trifling merely. Hence he believed that the invitation would come in due form, if it had not already been sent out. Asked as to the time he thought the conference would IDC called •for, he said it would probably bo late in the season, not earlier than October, und possibly as late as November. He said that both sides of the controversy were apparently anxious for delay, and this being the case he be- livecl they would bo gratified. The English bimetallists claim to be making substantial headway and are asking for all the time that can be givem before tho meeting of tho conference. Comlnr Out for Sound Money. HAUTFOKD, Conn.,.May 6;—Clinton 1?. Davis, chairman of the democratic state central committee, will call a public convention to sit in the Hyperion theater, New Haven, for tho first -week in June id the interest of sound money. The chairman's determination in this ro- spect is opposed by certain members of the committee, but he is strongly supported by the Monticello club of New Haven, ;in influential democratic organization. The official call will proli- ably be issued this woek. Action 111 Illinois Couiitlot*. SPKIXOPIELD, 111., May 6. —Countv democratic conventions were held Saturday at Toledo, Paris, McLcunsboro and Ca-rmi for the purpose of selecting delegates to the Springfield convention., Resolutions favoring the free coinage of silver were unanimously adopted at; each of the conventions. Lee county is the first county in the state that absolutely refuses to send a single delegate to the coming silver convention, to be held here June 5, and that county is the first one in the state to record itself against the free silver question, JTrefl Coinage Oppcind. CHICAGO, May G.—The Waubansee 'club gave a banquet Saturday night at the Auditorium hotel for the purpose of protesting against the free coinage of silver and voicing the sentiments of that element of tho parties. About 200 friends and guests were in attendance and after an hour's attention to the menu there occurred three hours of talk OQ finance by Hon. Richard W. Knott, of the Louisville Evening Post, and Hon. John M. Palmer. Mr. Knott's address was on "Commerce u.nd Currency," and in part he said: • ; CalJa It Kcpndlattoii. '• "No nation whose record Is tainted by rapu- ' (Ilation can contest the commercial supremacy of a poonlo who keep unbroken and undevist- lac faltli wltli public ami private creditors. Tho froo colnnge o' silver, under tno present legal tender laws, Is an attempted repudiation of one-half of our debts public and private. By such an not wo surrender our position among first-class nations and place the United States on a commercial level with Mtxlco and China. Since 188-4 gold has boon the basis of our currency. Since 1S73 tho sold dollar bas been the standard oi value, tho measure of exchange expressed or implied In every contract. It Is proposed by tho double iniquity of a legal ten der act and a debased currency act to authorize tho payment of every debt at half ;jta face value.' Senator Falmer'i Vlevfi. United States Senator John M. Palmer received a hearty welcome as he arose to "Democracy and Money.? His utterance was a repudiation of Satur- da3-'s democratic convention which declared for tho free coinage of silver. Among other things he said: "Is tho democratic party worth mala taming? Can we afford to follow toe more name when It has bean seized by mou who will do a frlevous public wrong? "We who feel that this * dishonest cannot bear the name of democrat. They would try to make us the more tall of the populist party. I will not stand It. and I trust there are those hero'Win no? stand tho attempt to steal the name of the party." The senator then pictured the ills iat would befall the nation were free coinage! Become a law and declared that ci. , ching political, social, Inane;::, and private would tie hrovr- into a convulsion, the extent :' which could not . be even rtvuned. The consequencesof adopting *w lower ratio of values would be that fold would not maintain its parity, and a loss would accrue to the people as the government would not be obligated to maintain the parity. : The ex change would work Indescribable chaos.

Tic party that flrst takes the Held for silver restoration win gather to Its support tho silver forces, and these forces are now aroused, and no doubt will grow stronger and stronger until everything Is swept before It, hence tho necessity of the democratic party taking on early stand for silver.
