Major McKinley has a brilliant record as a di'fonilci 1 of his conn- try at the (Million's month. The American pi.'ople demand a loader wlio lias shown himself a safe, reliable c'iti/.en who can court success with other dualities limn the modulations of a voice. When Major McKinley's success as a lawyer -was fixed lie entered politics, mid in that tidd lie also made a triumph, because of his sterling qualities. Though he possessed eloquence, this ;;ii:t lie did nor misuse nor overwork. Mr. Hryin spent, some years in Congress as dill Mr. MeKinley. Both wore eiionietic, in their time, in work for tariff reform. The accomplishments of Major McKInloy arc well known throiish the successful workings of the law that: boars bis name. None dare detract from the beuciits that, grew from the law of -McKinley. nor belittle the credit due him for dra\viii}f and passing the measure. The contrast, between the work of Mr. r.ryan ns champion of the Wilson low tariff measure, and the efforts of Mr. McKinley in placing his law on the books, is interesting. Toilay all are Protectionists. It there is an enemy of the cause, all want to know him. The spectacle of Mr. Bryan carrying on his shoulders the form ot Forgotten Wilson In nu undignified collegc-boy-rush In the aisles of the national hall of Congress Is not well received as today remembered. Mr. McKInloy snld a law that was not all-reaching in its effect would not receive his support, and should be denounced. Mr. Bryan favored the free trade that the Democratic party ns- sumcd to promise. In his ignorance or sheer disregard of evil effects sure to follow, he protested against, duties that made the Gorman-Wilson law "perful- oiis aud dishonorable." Mr. Bryan said "1 am for free wool." All know tlie results, and yet Mr. Bryan is for free wool. Major McKinley in 1S78 was as honestly a friend of silver as he Is today the champion of good, full value money. If ho expressed himself on the question, he spoke honestly. Ho did not want silver and gold coined at a dishonest ratio, Ini'his friendship for silver ho was a Republican. The party has always favored the largest use of silver consistent, with the sustained parity of the dollars. Mr. Bryan made Populist speeches in Congress for free and unlimited coinage. He has, since leaving Congress, been on the stump, lecturing on the question, and using Nature's gift to excite discontent, until even he is awakening to the seriousness of the situation. Mr. Bryan has denied' the assertion of those wuo know, that, he received from silver mine owners,, through the Bimetallic (free silver) League, ?C,000 a year for his ranting silver , speeches. -He . should prove this statement false. The candidate of the Popocrats is not houest. He Is an orator, when Mrs. Bryan is there to prompt him. He has not hesitated to borrow. His speeches while on his way to his debut at New York, are not to be compared with the dignified utterances of the Advance Agent of Prosperity, made quietly at his. home. Mr, Bryan says he Is not distributing post-offices yet, but he hopes to be after wli'Ile. That assertion should stamp him as an example of iu- flatlon with one thought only, and that for spoils. The manner of his notl-. flcatloii, In a theatre far from his home is expressive of his'character and disposition. He is dramatic, not statesmanlike. He Is small, even considering, his youthfulness. He Is honored above his years; above his ability; be- youil his depth; ahead of his deserts, anil the people realize it more truly every day. It is evident that if bis managers.,'are indiscreet enough to allow it,, ho will speedily talk his cause to death. ' Free coinage at 16 to 1 when the actual proportions are 32 to 1 means the destruction of every business interest, whether it be'farmirig/or merchandiz- ing. The farmer Is threatened with tuuf situation whore starvation will make men desperate and he will get nothing for'his-wheat; Chauncey Depew does 'not believe the country will be swept by free silver. He- says after November Bryan will be the Casablanca -of American politics." ' -''.-'' ' . The .Journal this morning publishes e.vPresldent-HaiTispn's speech'in full.

S. Gov't Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE MAY SUCCEED SATOLL1. Father Martinelll the Last Dignitary to Be Mentioned. The General, of the AngnMlnlan Order Ha* Much to Recommend Illin for th» Position — HU Vlnlc to Thin Country in 1804. Jfgr. Lorenzelli, papal nuncio at The Hag-ue,and Mgr. Falcouio have each been announced as the successor to Cardinal Sa,tolli. Recently a cable message fron: Eome, which, although direct and apparently authoritative, has not been unreservedly accepted as well founded, announced that Most Rev. Sebastian Martinelli was the coming: apostolic delegate to America, Should his appointment come to pass, there is every reason to believe that Father Martinelli will be warmly welcomed as one particularly well fitted by training, education, accomplishment and ability to fill the position. Most Bev. Sebastian Martinelli, ninety-ninth of the long line of illustrious superiors general of the Augustinian ortler (reaching: back to the date of the union of the 0. S. A. in 1354), was born August 20, 1S4S, in the parish of Santa Anna, Lucca, Tuscany, nnd looks even younger than he is. He is the youngest of five children of Cosimo and Maddelena (Pardini) Martinelli. His eldest brother, the late Cardinal Tommaso Maria Martinelli, nnd the third son of the family, Father Aiirclius Martinelli (now director general of the Pioi;s union), also became Augustinian friars. Sebastian went to Rome when he was 23 years of age, nnd has dwelt, for 31 years in the Eternal city. Most of his time has been spent in teaching. He was-resident regent of studies at the Irish Augustinian Hospice of Santa Maria in Posterula; and (when the government seized that house for public improvements) at San Carlo on the Corso. For many years he was promoter of the causes of the A-ugustinia.n saints and blessed ones—an office of trust and great honor, inasmuch as the promoter is champion advocate and sponsor of the candidates for canonization before the sacred congregation of rites. At the general chapter of the Augus- tlnian order on September 23, 1889, at the Convent church of St. Monica, Rome, MOST REV. SEBASTIAN MARTINELLI. Sebastian Martinclli was elected prior •general of the Hermits of the Order of St. Augustine, vice Most Rev. Pacifico Neno, deceased February, 1889. On that autumn day Father Sebastian was in hi» cell at San Carlo, knowing nothing about the election. The committee from the chapter-house, coming thither in tbe name of the cardinal president, found -the humble friar at his desk (be was a hard'student), and despite his tears and protests insisted on bearing him off to where the brethren were awaiting: their newly chosen chief. Their choice-has been well approved by the distinction with which the young father general has filled his high and responsible position. He is a member of the holy office, that select and supreme tribunal at Rome which claims tbe sovereign himseld ns its perfect, and which is called to render recision on the weightiest causes and questions of Christendom. He resides at St. Monica's, Rome. He sailed -from Italy June 21,1894, for this country; and was the only Augustinian general, save one (Most Eev. Paul Micallef, who visited South America in 1659), that ever crossed .to this side of the Atlantic. He came to visit the houses of his order and presided at the chapter convened at Villa. Xova college on July 25 of that year. Dr. Martinelli is in the very prime of his manhood and possesses a charming personality.- He speaks Englislrwirh ease and fluency. To the quick, vivacious ardor of his countrymen he unites the keen insight and delicate sympathy of the high-bred churchman. Although tbe term of the father general of the order had previously becni only five years, Dr. Martinclli was in July, 1893, reelectedforatermof 12 years. As the father general must reside in Rome, his appointment as papal delegate to the United States will necessitate his resigning his present position. Mortality In tbe Far North. A great many people actually believe that signing the roll of a vessel which k bound north-on ai voyage of discovery- Is equivalent to almost anything but death, pure and simple. That this is a great mistake is proven by some recent exhaustive figures on Arctic exploration in general. From these it appears that 97 out of each 100 who have gone north' exploring have returned in safety to civilization. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. Save 20 per cent.

The changing of it will not make more business or times better. Why should it? How can you make more actual business by calling six inches a foot, or, if silver would rise to par, by calling a foot a foot? Supply and demand make business.
