Sauce for the goose is no sauce for the gander. .With a gold spoon In their own mouths nud a silver ladle to serve the wage-earners those free-silver Senators would have others do unto them what they would not do unto others. Silver for you, gold for themselves. Senator Jones said in 1S78: "So exact a measure is it of human effort that when It Is exclusively used as money It reaches the very habit of honesty. It neither deals in nor tolerates false pretenses. It cannot lie. It keeps no promises to rich and poor alike." "We arc told that we can't get back to specie payments because the balance oC trade Is ngalnst us. The balance of trade is against us because we don't get back to specie payments. Give us the money that the world recognizes to regulate our trade, and the balance of trade will take care of itself." | "The use of gold had its origin In the necessities of mankind. The human heart is set upon it. It will command the proper services of everybody at all times and in all places. The necessities which compelled its.use are as inexorable today as they were at the beginning, 'although improved systems of exchange have diminished the proportionate volume necessary to do the work." , "It Is the common denominator of values. It makes possible the classification of labor and the interchange of commodities. Gold has intervened in bargiiius made between men since the dawn of civilization, and It has never failed to faithfully fulfill its part as the universal agent and servant of mankind. * * * The volume of gold is not affected by the stamp of the government. That Is merely flnal and reli-' able evidence of Its weight and fineness." "There have been many battles fought against gold, but gold has won every time. Gold never has compromised. * » * Gold has made tho world respect it all the time. The English people once thought that they could get along without gold for awhile but they had to come back to It, We did not depart from It on purpose to disgrace gold, but we attempted expedients at the time of the war because we thought we had not enough gold in the country to get along with, though probably we had." On page 4,907'6f Congressional Globe (same debate) Senator Stewart says: "Sir, the laboring man and the producer is entitled to have his product and his labor measured by the same standard -of the world that measures your national debt. * * » Give him such a standard, give hfm money as it from the producer. You require it from the producer. You, require it from the laboring man gold, to pay the interest on your national debt, which is,right, which cannot be avoided if you mean to save national honor, but then give him the same money with which to pay that debt." '.'I am opposed to any proposition, come in whatever form it may, that attempts to override what God Himself has made for money; that attempts to make money a commodity or make commodities money. I believe there is a vast difference between the functions of the two, and that every departure from this plain truth will punish tho country that so departs. I believe the sooner we come down to a purely gold standard the better It will be for the country. I believe that when we do so com* down we shall have entered upon an era of prosperity which will be unbroken for a century." FULL HOUSES Sound Money Speakers are Cordially Greeted. W D OWEN AT WALTON Justice at Royal Center--CluJj Formed at Prospect Hill: Still the good work in the cause';oit souud money and National honor, goes on with unabated vigor, and the strides The souud money sentiment is making; in the county is evidence that the work IS tolling. " ••:'.; • Three good meetings were held Mil thu country lust night. At-Royal Cent tor DeWitt C.

The meeting was'a source of great encouragement to-the'speak- ers, and to the Republican managers., The long anticipated visit of ^on. W. D. Owen to Walton was made last night, and the crowd that.assembled to hear Mr. Oweu was sucl). as to cause i him much • gratification of a personal nature, and at the same time', the enthusiasm shown when points ..were made against the cause of Bryan, was nn assurance that the people- were on the right side of the great Quostioir'dls- cussed, and in sympathy with ' i.h,e speaker's cause. -. . ••.., An encouraging meeting was that at Prospect Hill, In Adams township, S.

The Hor- tou meeting was first set for next: Tuesday night, but when the announcement of the Prospect Hill.Republican meeting'w-ns made, there was a change of dates, with the result that the crowd at Hoover's school house was depleted.

Years ago his fortune was represented by millions, the tribute to his industry and genius, which is, as has boon aptly said, but a capacity for work. Tho groat woaitli of Mr. Biair might be easily made the theme for a Socialist harangue or for a Bryan cross-roads criticism. And yet. far from being an indication for the iimqu.illUes of-condition in America it. points just the opposite lesson. Mr. Blair's whole life has boon one of great simplicity. And his fortune means that under a government of the people, where there is neither castle nor class to batten tho hatches of poverty over aspiration, endeavor will accomplish everything. Poverty in Northern New .Tersry, a wild mountain region eighty years ago was no small thing to overcome, but tho boy of fourteen overcame it. Mr.. Blair's life is not different from other Americans. It is through such rough experiences the road to a more than ducal fortune has so often begun. No one was more of the masses than Blair in his boyhood. All he wanted was the chance. American life gave it to him. He is a. stumbling block to the leveling Socialist who has the theories of life :ind would squeeze his men to fit his theori.es. MARRYING A TITLE.

We might venture to plead with American girls ami with tlifir parents that they would now ami then tv.id the newspapers and sec what has been the results of these- marriages: we would implore them to look into the law o£ foreign countries and to lea.ru wbaS is the legal standing of the •wife. Tbe Countess von Krockow writes to "Tire Independent" that Gcrmnn matrons soe their earnings and inheritance-pass into the hands of their husbands unless a special settlement, before marriage provides to the contrary. With an ingenious refinement of. brutality thai may almost, be called diabolical, -a. mother is deprived of the control over even hcr ; illegitimate children. Of • course, she is compelled to support them; but the father has absolute power. If a husband is unable to support himself (and the word "unabKT' will often meaJi "disinclined") the wife must support him according to his rant and standing. Hence Ihe difficulty G?. • a wife's obtaining a divorce from -s worthless husband. The courts real- tee that if he is divorced he will come upon the community, whereas now the wife must support him.
