CHICAGO, July 18.—The field of the cloth of gold, with the significance of chivalry, is outrivalled in Chicago, in Haborateness of arrangement at least and celebtity of combatants, the majority of spectators present Were persuaded rightly of wrongly that the up- to-date tournament equalled, n it tua not surpass, the famous, occasions When the knightly champions 6f old had a joust that challenged the attention of Christendom. This affair is strictly modern in every detail, and if lacking in display of tin* sel and plumes seemed all the greater, to the Witnesses who took it in all seriousness, that it Was a contest of intellect instead of muscle. Certainly both sides displayed att earnestness and vigor worthy of an encounter that it was apparently felt by them Would attract the keenest national and perhaps International interest. Nothing Ever LlUe It.

It was about 2 p. m. -\yheii the witty ex-congressman from Michigan, now a resident of New York, and the sharp Colorado newspaper man, now a citizen of Chicago, signified to the judges and the select audience present by invitation at the Illinois the characters used were actual. ^ At this point the contestants discussed at length the definition of money and the rnonetarj system of the United States was gone into minutely. Mr. Harvey claimed that the constitution of the United {States declared that gold anrt silver constituted the legal standard of tains and neither congress nor any state ban authority to establish any other staadard or dispose of this.

The judges were ex-Solicitor General of the United States Charles H. Aldrich and Hon. Henry Miller. Their Ponitlons DeBned. Before the debate proper was begun, Mr. Horr and Mr. Harvey, by an agree- meat between them, each made a statement of his position and what he expected to prove. Mr. Horr stated that he had never read a book in which he found so much of error and so little fact as was contained in "Coin's Financial School," which is taken as a basis for the discussion. He expected that when the debate ended he would have proved that this was the case. On the other hand, Mr. Harvey expected to prove that the propositions set forth in that book were substantially true, and he summarized them into propositions for the purpose of showing briefly what they were: 1. That silver and gold are the money of the constitution; that fee silver dollar was the unit of value in ourf coinage system in this country from 1792 to 1878, just as the yard stick was the measure of length. _Tnat gold was measured in this silver unit, and concurrent coinage given to it (gold); that silver and gold combined constituted the legal standard of value in this county till 1878; silver measured gold; the two together measured all other property. 2. That the act of 1878 was surreptitiously passed. 8. That during the period 1792 to 1873 the mints were open to the unlimited coinage of both metals into primary or redemption money, and that both were treated as such. That during that period people had a right to have either metal coined into full legal tender money, and that the option was with the debtor to pay in coins of, either metal. 4. That this bimetallic system made an unlimited demand for both metals to be coined into money, increased the demand for these metals, and so long as this law authorizing anyone to coin 871 % grains of silver and 28 2-10 grains of gold into a dollar, there was no one Willing to sell either for less than a dollar. 5. That the option to pay in either metal caused the cheaper of the two metals to be used, and transferred the demand from the dearer to the cheaper metal, and restored its relative commercial value. We are for both silver and gold. We are called silver men because we are defending the metal that has been demonetized. 6. That it is to the interest of the United States to act independently in the remonetjzation of silver at fee ratio to gold of 16 to J, without waiting tot the action of any other nation, 7. That monometallism consists in fee use of the dearer of the two metals to the exclusion of fee other, as prt' mary or redemption money, That mon- ometallism is an experiment on trial for fee first time in fee history of the world, and began wife fee period 1878.

Mr. Horr, following on this subject, said: t "We uow come to the discussion of the law which changed this nation from a bimetallic nation to a single standard nation, the law of 1878, which Brother Harvey kindly names a 'crime.' Ithaa beou called that so long that there is nothing novel in the name. I purpose to show you during this dis* cussion that no law has ever been passed by the American congress which Was more free from taint, Which was more carefully examined, which was more completely understood than the law of 1873. The statement which he read to you that the scheme was concocted in London is a simple assertion upon which he cannot produce one scintilla of reputable truth, not one word." Mr. Haf voy's Proof. Mr Harvey—Mr. Horr says that I have no proof that the scheme was concocted in London to demonetize silver in the United States. When I was a boy I went into a courthouse one day to hear a criminal trial and I heard a lawyer say: "When a crime is committed and you want to detect the criminal look for the man who is bone- fitted by the crime." Seasoning by induction will more invariably locate the criminal than any uncertain human testimony. Silver was demonetized in England, and in England only prior to the day it was demonetized in this country. That was where the movement started—that is another evidence. London bankers initiated the Paris conference of 1867, at which Mr. John Sherman was present, therefore I have the right to say the conspiracy originated in London. THE ACT OF 1873.

Then the beautiful girl crossed the room quickly and looked the door. The wedding dress rustled faintly as the key turned in the lock, and the sound, slight as it was, brought a flood of color, exquisite in its hue, into her cheeks, but with a sigh of relief she went resolutely back to the tiny writing desk which stood near the dressing table and sank quietly into the chair before it. Once again the pink roses gave way to the White in her cheeks, however, and for a moment her fingers hovered in a half hesitating, half doubtful way over one of the heavily carved drawers, then, with a little neat toss of defiance to the thoughts that were advising her against her heart's wish, she pulled the drawer slowly open and drew from its plush lined recess n small photograph. It was the picture of a man, but a man neither handsome nor striking in appear- WELL BORING AND DRILLING. \Ve Imve machinery of all sizes for boring of drilling wi'lls. Water guaranteed ot nu psiy.

CHICAGO, July 20.—It was knife to the hilt the third day of the Horr- Harvey encounter. The debate opened in the auditorium of the Illinois club at 10:80 a. m., the lateness of the starting hour heretofore having been more or less inconvenient in some respects. The subject under discussion was what Mr. Harvey had characterized in his book as the "Crime of 1873"—the demonetization of silver. After some miscellaneous sparring, Mr. Harvey charged corruption in the passage of the measure demonetizing silver. Mr. Horr, in reply, repudiated the inference that the citizens of the United States were all corrupt, and none of their women virtuous. He declared that it was not true that every man had his price. Members of congress were as honest as the average American citizen. He (the speaker) knew whereof he spoke, for he had been a member of that body himself. Mr. Horr then took up the History of the Demonetization Act and proceeded to show the stages through which it had passed, and that its final enactment was not until after it had been before congress for more than three years. Mr. Harvey then returned to the attack upon the honesty of legislators throughout the country including those in Colorado and Illinois legislatures. This venality was sapping the foundations of the government as it had sapped the foundations and destroyed every republic of the past, Mr. Horr again returned to the defense of the honesty of the American people. He said Mr. Harvey merely picked out a few corrupt men and drew from them the proposition that the people of the nation were corrupt. Why, if Mr, Harvey had lived in Job's time, he would have looked over that unfortunate man's sores and would given out and published throughout the world that all Chaldea was an immense carbuncle. Mr, Horr then, amid laughter, said he would return to the question under discussion and proceeded wife fee history of the demonetization act, pointing out how fee bill had been read in full several tiroes and printed separately eleven times and twice in fee reports of the comptroller of the currency. The debates in fee senate on it occupied 66 ool. i» The Congressional Record. auce. For ft moment the girl looked clown at the plain face before her, with the clear, true eyes returning her earnest gaze sc really, without emotion; then, \vith n hnli suppressed little exclamation of infinite love, she pressed the picture to her sweet young lips again and ngain. Up the wide stairway and along the hall cnino tho subdued strains of the orchestra humming softly to itself behind the palms In tho balcony, and the rippling melodies mingled reluctantly with tho sound of the wheels of tho late coiners' carriages ns they rolled hurriedly up to tho door. Tho girl's beautiful eyes, still upon the photograph, seemed to grow dreamy with recollections, and she forgot tho waiting men and women of her sot below. Two years ago—two short years! Yet in that time what n century of lovo n woman may live, and what an eternity of happiness or pain I Two years ago, and life held only happiness and hopes, and now— But she would not permit herself to think of now; the present Is to bo lived, not thought of. Whatever happened in that present made little difference. Tho past was hers, secure and not to bo disturbed. And to that past she crept back for one long, last look ore it was put away, forever perhaps. She know it must bo; she had been told so time and time again, but not until the very night when sho was to give her hand to her brother's best friend had sho fully realized it all. With her heart throbbing as it had never throbbed before, though sho had listened to the halting story from other men's lips, sho heard but dimly what this plain, car- nest man whispered, and when at last she raised her happy face to his and he kissed her passionately heaven indeed seemed not so far away. For a long time they sat there—longer than the gull had tho patience to wait, foi it finally flew away—and when they went hack at last, walking slowly along the beach to the little inn, her heart seemed to sing to itself the love song ho had sung the night hefore, with a new meaning in tho tender words. And she felt and real ized that love had crowned her life. And now? She wondered dimly if he remembered all this, or had he forgotten as men will forget such things? Could he do that, could ho? She looked again at the picture held in her warm trembling hand, and the deep gray eyes looking straight up into her own scorned to say "No!" while the firm lips might have been whispering over again those sweet perjuries which even now rang in her ears. Tho sharp click of a closing carriage door sounded below, and • a moment after the hurried tread of feet upon the stair told of the arrival of groom and best man, but sho did not hear them. Again the picture was pressed to the girl's lips, and the blue eyes grew brighter still with unshed tears. Gone though it all was, irrevocably past, it was still her privilege in these last few minutes to bring it back if she chose and to live for a moment in the shadowy long ago. Only a few short moments more and the girl would bo the wife, and then— . • • A gentle knock upon tho door, and the little mother's soft, anxious voice called: "Are you ready, dear? He is here." Tho girl started to her foot, clutching the picture in her nervous fingers until it almost bent. The orchestra, was throbbing in musical rhythms bolow, the chatter of the guests came up to her &k. If they were far away and she but an idle ^istener, and tho dreamy look in her sweet eyes deepened fora moment. Then it passed quickly, and a pretty air of determination and resolve came over her. With one last yearning look at tho face between her white fingers sho hesitated a single second, and then, with eyes alight and cheeks burning, she slipped the picture into the bosom, of her gown, and tho lace fell gently over it. \ "Yes, mother," she answered quietly, forcing back with a great effort tho little sob that rose to her lips, and walking steadily across the room again she unlocked the door and stood before the nervous, chattering bridesmaids with a calm, sweet 4RRIVAL and DEPARTURE of TRAIHS CHICAGO, MILWAUKEE AND ST.
