THE sending of cine of our battleships to Havana rosiy have some significance. It may be the beginning ef a policy of interference to check the destructive war in Cuba. It eught to be brought to an end, and tbe United States is the nation that should interfere bo check it. THE Republican party promised to restore soundness to our -money system. A year lias now passed and mothing has been done. There seems to be as many Interpretations of sound money as there are members of congress. Senator Chandler declares that sound money does not mean the perpetuation of the gold standard. He declares that the fight to establish the single gold standard is being carried on by the plutocrats, who have been made rich dealing in gov- eminent bonds. He says that McKinley must either stand with Secretary Gage and the plutocrats or come out on the side of line people. THE monetary conference which is to convene at Indianapolis today has lome significance. It must signify that the moneyed men of the country kave no confidence in the present Republican congress. It mast signify *hat neither the president nor his •ablnet has the capacity to tormu- Jace a plan of reforming the currency that is worthy of being accepted by the people. H. H. Hanna, who is the head of the movement, is a man •f very ordinary capacity. The two Members of the commission who have •lalmto ability sire George F. Edmunds and Lucius Fairchild. Both •f these gentlemen are personally interested Jn the permanent establishment of gold monometallism, and »oth, perhaps, are under pay of New York capitalists. Never before in the history of the •ountry has a self constituted commission sought to control Che legislation of the country. The attempt to dictate is an Insult to congress and the president The president dying. _ .1..J-_.aV._*V..v ftOm and the congress were elected by the people who confided In the ability of the men chown to promote the cause •f Bound money. And what doos the commission want to do? It wants the government to issue millions of gold bonds. It wants the non-interest bearing greenback currency redeemed In gold. It wants to grant authority to the •ational banks to Issue all the paper money that the people may need. Will congress do these things? PHILLIPS BROCKS SAID IT. It Has a World of Meaning to All But the Sick. To the Sick It Rings Like a Knell to Happiness. Can Yon Understand and Appreciate Us Deep Meaning? Rev. Phillips Brooks said, "The man who knows what it is to act, to work.cries out/This alone is to live!" How many there are, broken down in health and strength, who would gladly teat the truth of tbe noted divine's words, but who feel themselves unable to work and act. They have lost their health and strength. They are run-down, weak,tired.They go to bed at night fatigued in every limb.feeling that life is hardly wortn living; they wake in the morning un- refreshed after a restless night, with dull and aching head, Impaired digestion, dispirited, languid and unfit for the day's duties. Happiness, then,means good health, and if you will follow the advice and example of Mr. L. J. Boardman, o? Manchester, N. H., and use Dr. Greene's 'Nervura blood and nerve remedy, which is the sure restorer of health and strength, you can certainly get well. He says: "I was troubled a great deal with indigestion. I was in such a condition that I had frequent nose bleeding. The action of the stomach affected the heart, and at one time I was away from my work fifteen davs, and under the care of a local physician I believe that I came near 'Someone recommended Green's Nervura blood and remedy, and I have already two bottles. It is doing me Dr. nerve taken much good and I iam able,to be at my work again.' 1 Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy la the grandest restorer of health, the surest blood purifier and the most wonderful nerve builder known. Use it at once, you who need a medicine to give yon health, to make you well and strong.

I have lor a long time been in favor of shattlnji; out immigrants and the industrial disturbance now going •n in New England shows the importance of prompt action. I hope the immigration bill which has just passed the senate will pass the house. I shall use whatever influence I can bring to bear on the house members to have the measure considered promptly and favorably. It is manifestly impossible for us to avoid frequent disturbances in the industrial world of the most serious character if we leave the gates of our country wide open and allow immigrants to land on our shores when many of our own citizens are without employment," This indicates that McKinley has at last found out that a high tariff may protect rich manufacturers, but i1i will not protect the wages of laboring people. Now if he will just close the gates against all foreign immigrants for a term of about ten years, wages can be materially increased. In fact our own laboring people can, without strikes, demand just such prices as they may desire. But how tbe protected concerns would then kick! In Pennsylvania none but. foreigners •re employed. The protected mine owners and Iron makers have for years been importing tha cheapest class of laborers from Hungary, Po land »nd Italy. They were brought over under contract to take the place of American workmen. Tbey werb given employment by coniserns that »re supported by taxes wrung from the Amarioan people. They were t-iven employment by Carnegie and jkaik Hanna, whose riches have been increased under the system of protecting Ameirlcin laboring misn.

Indianapolis. Ind., Jan. 25. — Governor Bhaw. as chairman of the monetary convention which is in session here, addressed the delegates as follows: "I believe, gentlemen, you represent today the nonpartisan purpose as w.jli as the financial sentiment of a very large majority of the American people. Every time the question has been votec! upon they have declared for sound money and national honor. Back in the '70's the repudiation of both public and private debts was proposed and openly advocated. Those who espoused the cause insisted that the roost sacred obligations could be honestly discharged by {he unlimited issue of irredeemable paper currency (as Zach Chandler expressed in the last speech of his life), currency payable to no one, at no }Iace, and never. The issue was taken lo the polls, and by an overwhelming majority repudiation was repudiated. 'It is worthy of note that the greenback movement was pressed with :reatest vigor between 1S73 and 1£:7S, while the silver dollar was omitted from our coinage laws, but its adherents ivere never victorious in a single state or congressional district, except as the result Of fusion with one or the other of the leading parties. The people favored resumption o£ specie payment, even pending the enactment there- for of 1S75 and after the demonetiza- tion of silver. A people that endorsed the prospective return to a specie basis when such return meant the adoption of the gold standard, and while the possible dangers therefrom were being urged and exaggerated, and when none of the good effects therefrom were being realized, and" in the face of a plan for the liquidation o£ national obligations by the free use of an irredeemable paper currency, must be presumed to have been, at that time at least, well centered in sound financial principles. Have we since been unwisely educated? -It doth not so appear. ••Twenty years later, in a yet more subtle form, and at a time when self- preservation appealed to any to join the hosts arrayed for the purpose, partial repudiation was proposed. • 1 do not wish to be understood as charging those who advocated the free coinage of silver at the ration with gold of 16 to 1 with dishonesty; I prefer to regard them as entitled to forgiveness, for certainly they knew not what they did. Nevertheless, in no ' unmistakable terms, it was their avowed intention to provide for the discharge of all existing liabilities, public and private, with a silver "doUar. or its equivalent, intrinsically worth but 50 per cent of the dollar of the money current at the time the obligations were incurred. It was the boast of the advocates of the measure that this inferior coin should be in no manner or form .redeemable, exchangeable or convertible at par into any other coin or form of money intrinsically worth more. A cheap dollar was the battle cry of the allied forces. "The elementary principle that the standard coin of all countries is worth thf material of which it is composed and never more, was ridiculed by the promulgates of the new movement. They refused to consider the provisions of the statutes which makes the present gold coin legal tender at its nominal value only when of full weight and within the limit of tolerance provided by law; and which provides that the same coin shall possess legal tender qualities in proportion to its weight when below the limit of tolerance. They failed to. note the common transactions of everyday life, when the foreign gold coin is exchanged for' the gold coin of this country, and the gold coin of this for that of foreign lands absolutely in proportion to the material of which they are composed. They would not heed the demonstration of this same principle in the fact that the standard silver dollars of Mexico circulates, botli at home and abroad, as compared with gold in proportion to its bullion value. "Nevertheless, by a popular majority of over J. 000.000 the country again declared. even amid the most depressing conditions, that neither total nor partial repudiate :i t'nund auc'iience in the American heart and mind. Our people are honest, and they are wiser than many suppose. The safety of republican government was never so clearly demonstrated as on Nov. 3. 1S96. Either the verdict rendered on that day determined that the value of the United State? dollar shall be and remain in both debt-paying and purchasing power the equivalent of 25. S grains of standard gold or that election determined nothing. "I am not unmindful of the fact tha.t possibly a few voted for the gold standard in the hope that international bimetallism was attainable, but they wisely recorded their vote in favor of the maintenance of the present gold standard until such time as international bimetallism should be secured. Now that' the most earnest and good faith attempt thereunto has failed, and amid such circumstances as to lead a.l! thinking men to believe that nothing can ever be accomplished along that line, it follows that the gold standard must be maintained forever. "Thi? beir.sr fettled, what remains to be done? The p«>plf> have a right to expeci something. They went to the extreme limit of their opportunity in demanding security against financial depression, commercial upheavals and industrial agitation. In view of the ot* repeated declaration for national hcnor and the payment and discharge of every obligation, public and private in a currency equivalent to gold. It remains for the lawrr.aking power to spread the verdict of 1S96 on record, to render judgment in accordance therewith. and to make the decree perpetual A failure to do so will endanger every interest, every industry, every enterprise. and make possible a panic of such cyclonic force and widespread extent as to render what we have seen. In comparison, but i summer's zephyr. TWe must h«.ve a paper currency, believe. the country at large, without _,to 9*Jty, agrees to this proposition. "We must have a paper currency, and of sufficient volume for the needs of a great and prosperous people, with many and vaired interests. Those who believe in the principle indorsed at the polls in 1S96, together with those who accept the verdict then rendered as of binding force, agree that every dollar of paper currency must be redeemable, directly or indirectly, exchangeable or controvertible, .at par for gold. The value of even" dollar of the United States money, -whether of ccin or paper currency, must be the equivalent of 25.S grains of standard gold. The gold coin must be the touchstone, the test, the measure of value of every dollar, by •whomsoever issued or howsoever expressed. This paper currency, the volume of which must be co-extensive with the needs of the country, should all be issued by the government or by the banks. The time has passed by when the government should issue a part of the paper currency (other than coin certificates) and the banks a part. "This currency must be elastic. There will be no more half bushels needed in the south on thrashing day than will be needed seeding day. The same thing is true of the east and the west and the Pacific slope. Tbe monetary system that shall stand the test of all time must be automatic in its operations. "Wherever the demand exists there the currency must spring- up in volume sufficient to meet the requirements of trade and commerce. This can be accomplished only by clothing the banks •with power to issue. Then a small tax should be levied upon the circulation to protect against dangerous inflation beyond the needs of the country, and to insure contraction when the demand ceases. '•The government cannot provide any such automatic safety valves to regulate its own issue. Every financial-political agitation engenders a mania OB the part of the people for hoarding and every 'manifestation of a disposition to hoard produces a political agitation along financial lines. Every such agi- ation in turn paralyzes commerce and ends to throw the balance of trade against us. This, in turn, depletes our tock of gold, and this again intensifies all other evils. All these tendencies are ikely to become epidemic and are seldom understood or attributed to the netting cause. The most unfortunate phase of it all is the fact that the government is powerless to relieve. It cannot replenish its treasury, as we have seen, except by a loan and an increase of the interest-bearing debt. The gov- -rnment is like the individual. It cannot raise money except on assets, and laving none on hand it issues bonds extending over a long period of years, and thus imposes new burdens on the people. This is given widest publicity and intensifies the evils rendering th» expedient necessary. "The fact that the interests at stake n this movement are financial, indus- rial and commercial will justify no less care than if they were political. The country has learned that capital cannot >e coerced into activity. It can be invited, but it is extremely shy. When t does venture forth it is only when :he coasts are clear and the agitator is at rest. "That you represent something besides the names yoar parents gave you will not militate against such recommendations as you may be pleased to submit. Whatever the country • may think of the banker, It thinks well of you. Your interests are in common with those of the people generally. The fact that you have more involved than some will only insure greater care. I think it was Colonel Ingersoll who said: It requires a great degree of patriotism to induce a man to shoulder a musket in defense of a boarding house.' I would only urge that you be thoughtful, brave and true, and the people will be with you." M'KINUEY WILL BE A GUEST. President to Speak at Manufacturers' Banquet in New York.

Separated for Six Month*. Justice Gaynor, in the supreme court, Brooklyn, has handed down a decision which will attract much attention. He granted to Mrs. Sarah S. Conner a decree of separation from her husband, the separation to last for six months only, during which time her husband Is to pay her $10 a week alimony. In doing this the justice exercised a power ;iven to him by law. but which, as far as lawyers recall, has never before been I used. Separations have heretofore been permanent. Limiting the duration of the separation is designed to give the parties an opportunity to remove the cause of trouble and to effect a reconciliation.
