"We are unalterably opposed to every •t«aaure. calculated to debase our cur- nocy or Impair the credit of our coun- tiy. We are therefore opposed to the tree coinage of silver except by Inter- Mtlonal agreement with the leading •wmnerciai nations of the world, -which me pledge ourselvwi to promote, and until then such gold standard must be pre- Mrved. "All our silver and paper cuncncy •oat be maintained at parity with fold, and we favor all measures de- •igned to maintain Inviolably the obll- fatlona of the United Stales and all our • money, 'whether coin or poper, at the standard, the standard of the enlightened nations of the earth." — Republican platform. "We demand tlie free and unlimited coinage of 'both gold and sliver at the present legal, ratio of 1C to 1, without wilting for the aid or consent of wy •tter nation. We demand that tho •tandard silver dollar shall be i full • legal tender, equally with gold, for all . lebte, public ar.d private, and we fav- •r roch legislation as will prevent the Iwnonetlzatlon of any kind of legal tender money by private contract.— Dew o- jMtlc platform.

POLICY AS ESPECIALLY NECESSARY FOB THE PKOTBO- TION QF, THE FARMERS AND LABORING CLASSES, THE FIRST AND MOST DEFENSELESS VIC- TIMS OF UNSTABLE MONEY AND A FLUCTUATING CURRENCY Denjocmtlc platform, 1802. Not only this. and great THE ADAMSBORO MEETING. Tin 1 demonstration at Adnuislioro .vMronliiy was rho most remarkable rlio history of the county since tlie wit 1 . Five thousand people gathered at a point remote from any city, :lii< reached by only one railroad, to hciu Republic-sin speeches. [nit: tin 1 IIIICHSO I'j enthusiasm disclosed the fact that the pi-ople arc thoroughly aroused to the danger that threatens. Thi! Peru convention was another indication of the same feeling, indicating flint Democrats also are awake to the necessities of notion. But It will not be sudlcleut to be earn est and enthusiastic. "The work of education must go on. Eevery man who Is open to reason must be shown the fallacy and danger of tho proposition to strike down our monetary system a; a remedy for business depression When the channel of commerce is dry docs the prudent man build more boats as a remedy? When there. is no business does lie cut Ills dollars in two, calling each a dollar, aud expect that to make more Imsiuess? When wheat Is soiling for fifty cents a. bushel does lie call that fifty cents a dollar nnd think lie is getting a dollar for wheat' This whole free silver cra/.e is iusti gated by speculators, mine owners and politicians, hoping to avoid the responsibility for depression which always laid at the iloor of the parly In power, a plea in confession and aviodance. There Is uo thi.ug in free silver as a remedy, and as for -the cause of depression It is largely the Jack- of credit created by this fallacy I.ct tliore be thoughtful consideration of the situation. The Republicans emphatically de maud that our money be left as it is It is uo time to change. The effects of the depression, arid uncertainty the country lins passt'd through can be overcome by restoring coniidencc not by furthcrilestroylug It. The most prosperous period iu the history of the country was in 1892, nineteen year; after the act of 1ST3. This ought to convince any man that that act liml nothing to do with the present depression. You cannot increase the demands for products by making one peck a bushel, six Inches u foot, or one pint a gnllou. You cannot make a law that will ennble you to trade your pock bushel of wheat .for another man's full yard of clo'th. You galu nothing in that way. Let the money alone. That Is what the Republican platform, advocates aud what every man ought to favor. Trade, wages, farming, manufacturing—all will be injured by a changer 1 of money. You might as well expect to rise iu tlie world by pulling on your shoestrings as to expect to better your sales by reducing your bushel and charging enough more for toe short bushel to make prices the same as they are at present for a bushel of 02 pounds of wheat. Iu 1ST3 there was coined .f.200,000 lii silver dollars In the United States. The United States silver production for that year was 27,050,000 ounces. Where stood Colorado and Nevada, at that time? Where stood Senator Stewart? All for sound money. Why? Because silver was at a premium and would soil for more as bullion In Europe than It would bring as dollars under the United States free coinage laws, .You do not have to take tills statement "for It. Doesn't your own Intelligence show you that the silver mine owners would sell In the dearest market? Don't the figures above prove to you that they did this? The 27,000,000 ounces would make ,¥35,750,000 silver .dollars and yet only, $290,000 were coined by these friends of the poor man and with the exception, of $1,225,000 trade dollars which were coined for export at bullion value. All the rest of this bullion except what was used In,the arts was shipped abroad and sold. Now that silver has gone down these same men have sought to re-establish free coinage for their own speculative--purposes. Of course there nre many who really believe In free silver, but these are misled by the men who are attempting the worst fraud over sought to be perpetrated on a free people,. . IT IS NOT AT ALL PROBABLE THAT THE NEXT HOUSE-- WILll; HAVE A MAJORITY rAVORABLE' TO THE FREE COINAGE OF SIL-. TER AT A RATIO OF 10 TO .^ WJ3EN IT BECOMES A DBMO'Jl-' STRATED FACT THAT THERE'IS ; NO DANGER OF THIS COUNTRY ADOPTING THE SILVER STANDARD IN CONDUCTING THE BUSINESS O-F THE COUNTRY, PROSPERITY WILL O&ME AGAIN AND, WITH LOWER TAXES ON THE NECESSARIES OF LIFE, EVERY KIND OF BUSINJE«S WILL- BOOM AGAIN.—Piharos •editorial, March J2. 1890.

Ho Bout New* of" the Uattlo at Fl'frtl4 burgh Lmidlnc -Tliroe Day* In ' Advance of th« Official " KeporlH. •'' ••' •••' [Special Washington Letter.] Regular readers ol newspapers' arc lamiliar with the fact t-hnt modern enterprise is nowhere better exhibited than by daily newspapers in their efforts to gather oil •o! the nows of the world. Erich newspaper tries to get more news and better news, and in better form, than, any of its rivals. When an important item of news is secured by one newspaper only, none of th* TOM BIVINS AT THE KEY. others having- received it, that successful enterprise is called a "scoop" on all of tJie other newspapers. There are two great press associations in this country, and their agents tire .go-thering- news in every village, us well as in all of the great cities...Full reports of the conventions of the great political parties are sent to all of the Newspapers in tiie country by the press '"associations. And yet, in addition to ;those fnU reports, the leading- news 'papers print specie! reports from their own special correspondents. This costs each one of the papers considerable inoncy in addition to their reports from ^ife press associations, and yet modern eStorprise is such that these special "reports from special correspondents are accessary, and the expense must'be incurred. While congress is' in session there ore nearly 300 special corrcspond- ?.rits employed in Washington; and each one of them is constantly trying-, to "scoop" his rivals in the newsgathcring field. : When'-President Gnrfield. was at El- boron, N..J., slowly dying- from trie ef-. feet of the bullet of ihe assassin Giilt- eau abont SOO Bpe'ejnl" correspondEnts were there on the seaeonst, dutyyr •hourly making inquiry concerniug.the condition, of the distinguished sufferer and sending tekgrnrns to their ripwa- papers, because all ryes were turned towards Elberon mid our entire peo-: pie were anxiously reading.every-'itcm 'of news from that point, Tom Blvins, n splendid newspaper man, was-nhnost sleepless for nearly- n week beca ; 0|Se-;he learned from the surgeon in eharge.,.I>ri Bliss, that the president could not'sur- vive and that his death was 'but. a'quefl-, tion of days or hours. Bivins^vus fi stenographer and teleirraph operator as well as a. newsgatfici-er. mid he often, 1 sent telegrams by the. hour for .the regnlar- telegraph operators »t;-that place. Thus it happened that wberj Bivins rushed into the telegraph offlci! one night nnd grasped the key of thq instrument he was nllowed' to sje.iul'hU messages to his newspapers conveying ip the world the first information'of the .fact that President Garfteld bad breathed his last, shortly: after, : teti o'clock that night, . ,-,, . ' Naturally, the newspnpers represent,ed by Bivins were elated with ,his nahieveiaeut, and his reputation, as- a faithful and successful newsgmth'erer a soon known throughout the entvrt country. • ....'.. ,'"'•''•! The war correspondents hove always endured hardships,and many of,them have been actually xindef fire, together with the soldiers, In order .that, they might furnish late nnd reliable infor;- matiou for their papers. During this war between China and Japitn, during the Franco-Prussian war, and during- the war of the rebellion to this'C'ountry the newspaper workers were.-diligent and faithful; and particular interest was taken by the people iu the ,did|patches marked "speeial. 1 ' ' Previous tp our civfl war the greatest special'worlc ever done was by the correspondent of the London. Times, who sent to his paper and hod published an account of thje battle of Waterloo and the downfall of Napoleon, on the very day that the official reports were received .in London from Lord Wellington. In those.daya,, when, there were no facilities for tb« rapid .transmission of news, Iha-t'waa a remarkable feat in journalism. I'or half a century the' London Tiiuea claimed credit for that work, and no- other . newspaper approximated i-tHe achievement. • , , • •• -. ; But during the civil WOT in this.co-iln- try the London Times'famous report was excelled by the New York Hep- aid, when that paper printed the first account of thebattleof PittsburgLand- ng, the battle which almost caused the star of Grant to-set forever. T.bat report was .put', on.;the wires and tajarid- mitted by Maj. ! ;Wiliiam C.'Carroll,, fbr,. inahy years recently a clerk in the pep- gion office.in this.city. Mnj. Carrblf'a story : of the'great battle was print*d^ 48 hours'in advance of oil other reporfav and that achievement stands"<to-day •without parallel ns the greatest "scoop" n the history of war .correspondence.; The Carroll report was printed..in ; ,the, Herald, transmitted toW.aBhinieton/knd, •ent to congress ; t>y President Lincoln n an official .message' three-day's be'forfl the war"department wceivefroWclCl fe- ports concerning the decisive and sanguinary engagement. Maj. Carroll had been at Island No. 10 on the Mississippi river, where the 'federal forces under Maj. Gen. John Tope Had hceu slowly but successfully driving the enemy from 'his strong- •holcl. Grimt hail fought the successful ibattic a.t Fort Donclson, and gnincd bis .first nntionnl reputation, by sending his •famous message demanding "unconditional surrender," n-s (i result of which ;the newspapers used : his initials in 'laudation, calling him "Unconditional •Surrender Grant." Col. .loliri A. Logan Jh'ad been wounded in thnt engagement, ,njid received a. commission a.s brigadier igeneral: and, on his way to the rear, had .tu«t with Maj. Carroll at I«lnndNo. 10, and attached him to his staff, ordering him 1o ire-port tio Gen. Grants at Savannah, Tenn. Grant's army was located there, ami he was preparing for an aggressive campaign, when the enemy surprised him on Sunday, April 6, 3862., a.ud almost drove him into the river, before nightfall came, and with It the reinforcements which were no sadly needed. It is matter of history that, with the aid of Buell's a.rmy of the Ohio, Grant retrieved himself on Mon- .dajva-nd won a victory over his powerful foe. On that Sunday morning Grant was nt his headquarters at Sa.va.nnah when the battle began, iuid he at once embarked on his boat to go to the scene of battle, nnd fine! out what caused the .firing which was growing constantly in volume. Maj. Carroll had arrived that morning, had reported to Adjt. Gen. Ktuvllns, n.nd he received permission to accompany Gen. Grajitand staff. . Thus it happened that lie was early on the scene of action. Maj, Carroll hns sr.id upon numerous occasions (hat.Gen. Bucll was not in accord with Gen..Gran(. He had conversations with Bnell <\nd with his staff oflicers, nnd they claimed all credit for ! the- victory, M:ij. Carrol! reported what lie had learned to Gen. Kawlins, Gen. ITilyer nnd Gen. Logan, and told them f ha'.t if Buell's \ra.r correspondents should send reports of the bat-lie they would undoubtedly give YIuoll -.ill credit for the victory. Oojninorlore Graham gave Maj. Carroll one of his transport steamers, n.inl the jiiajo-r Ftmined own.y to Fort 31'i'nry for tlio p-arpo.sc of sending his dispatches. Telegraphic com- ciiinicr.lion with the north was established at Fort. Henry, and Maj. Carroll was the only newspaper man in t.lvj army who knew that fact. He still held his commission as the Herald correspondent, and-wrote his account of the battle while the. boat steamed down the .AN INTERVIEW WITH . LINCOLN. river. He paid the telegraph operator ten dollars for his immediate attention, and immediately the news began to go .over the wire. All newspaper matter was subject to censorship, and very soon the operator told OarroJl tEa't the'commanding- officer at FortDonel- son -wonted to know who was sending that long 1 dispatch. ' It happened that the commanding .officer was Gen. Logan, and -when the operator sent word that it was Carroll he authorized the report to go ahead. Thus it happened that Maj: Carroll sent the first news of the battle- of Pittsburgh Landing-, and by doing so he not only accomplished the greatest feat ever performed in war correspondence, but at -the same time gave the world a report. which, fairly represented Gen. Grant, .thereby forestalling the. reports whtch were sent later in. the interest of Gen. Buell. Consequently, during his'entire lifetime Gen. Grant wag «, warm friend of Maj. Carroll, ' and took occasion to demon strate his appreciation. •• Maj. Carroll then, secured leave of absence, went to New York,..and after- words to Washington where he saw Senator Wttshbu'rn,. and -pcrsonoJly gave him a cdrrect account of the battle, giving- credit to Grant for his-splendid efforts; and correcting many, misapprehensions which existed. ..It, will be remembered that Gen. Hallecfc gave credence to Ge». Buell's report, and.re- lieved Grant of his command,4huroJliJit- ing the' great soldier to sucJi'a; degree that, but for the warm friendship and urgent advice of Gen. Sherman piidGcn. Eawlins, Grant might have resigried .from the army. Senator Wasbb.urn took Maj. Carroll to the white house, where he tad an extended interview with. President Lincoln, to whom, he gave valuable information coricerhlng 1 the "Illinois soldier who was at that time being roundly abused and villifled from many sources. To the friendship of Maj. Carroll, Gen. Sherman, Gen. Rawlins, Senator Washburn and President Lincoln the country IB largely indebted for. the subsequent career of Grant; for, during those days of misrepresentation and calumny, the jreat soldier was moodily determined lo leave the army. Hia friends weir; few,.but they warmly espoused Klii cause,-comforted and encouraged.him; and very soon.thereafter President.Lin- coin restored him to command, nnd h« tKroug-ht the war to a conclusion with hbnbr'to his flog, ond.with credit to himself.

THE LOGANSPORT HUMANE SOCIETY. The Directors of the Logansport Humane society held a, meeting iu the office of the Secretary, George W. Wal. tors, -on Tuesday afternoon to review the work of the society since its organization, with special reference to the Humane Inspector's work since his appointment, the first of the month. His report shoivs that, in this time he has unreined over four hundred horses, where they were excessively over- checked, that he has fed and watered more than sixty-five, and that ten cases of cruelty to animals aside from the above, and one case of cruelty to children has come under his personal observation, and numerous other reports of various kinds have been Investigated.

Don't wait to report it to the society but interfere personally for the Immediate relief of the victim, and then report at once to the secretary or inspect or for further Investigation. The business of the society Is fairly on its feet and with the earnest and active co-operation of our citizens U is bound to succeed and a great <™~' .-"•- compllshed.
