It caused the •nactment of the law providing for the resumption of specie payments in 1879; tlnce then every dollar has been as good as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to •Very measure calculated to debase ear currency or impair the credit of mr country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except by: International agreement with the leading commercial nations of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, And until then such gold standard must be preserved. "All our silver and paper currency must- be maintained at parity with gold, and we favor all measures de- •Jgned to maintain Inviolably the obligations of the United States and all our money, whether coin or paper, at the prewnt standard, the standard of the moat enlightened natlons.of the earth," — Hepubllcan platform. "We demand the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 16 to 1, without waiting for the aid or consent of any •toer nation. We demand that the standard silver dollar shall be a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all debts, public and. private, and we fay- •r such legislation as will prevent the demonetization of any kind of legal tender money by prlfate contract."— ; Democratic platform. "We demand free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold at the present legal ratio of 1(> to 1."— Populist platform, 1892. "We bold to the -use of both gold and tllTcr as the standard money of the cooritry, and to the coinage of both gold and silver, without discriminating Against either metal or cnarge for mintage, but the dollar unit of coinage o* both metals must be of equal Intricate and exchangeable ralue or bo ad- juried i through International agreement or by such- safeguards of .legislation as shall Insure the maintenance of the parity of the two metals.and the equal pow.er of every dollar at all timea in the markets and In payment of debt, «nd we demand that all paper currency 'able ' i; in"-: such !' : coinV £ SIST'UPOK THIS POLICY AS PECIALLT NECESSARY FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE FARMERS AND LABORING CLASSES, THE FIRST AND MOST DEFENSELESS VICTIMS OF UNSTABLE MONEY AND A FLUCTUATING CUR- REN'CY.— Democratic platform, 1802.

Wlien, .Bismarck's jidvoeatiou of Amorlca.'s Prp- tei-tlou policy as the sa.lvaitlou of Germany, is co-nsiOicred, topetilio.r with -the fact that ho is not (i silver mooioauetal- ll-sit a.t ail, it 'will bo suwi 't:l««t he ad- vowitos RCDiiWioa'uism. It Is admitted Ithii-t Br.v;uilt(?s arc silver monoineitnl- Jt-it-s. '.Wwi-o can be oo longer «fly doubt of Wiis fact. In no silver basis country is tbcro sold In aiircubi.t.lon. Yet rho debts of tlic countries, Hie foreign bustacsci of those silver comiihrlcs, mtist nil IK ou a gold basis. In all gold countries -there Is silver In firciilnolon jn 'largo amounts.

Tt may be said of Bismarck, itihat lie nover worked for flic Mlvn'ncoracnit of silver mooometallisin. On the other hand, the Republican party has done more for silver titan tiny iparty in. any coiui-try 1ms ever done. IT IS NOT AT ALL PROBABLE THAT THE NEXT HOUSE WILL HAVE A MAJORITY FAVORABLE TO THE FREE COINAGE OF SILVER AT A RATIO OF 1C TO 1. WHEN IT BECOMES A DEMONSTRATED FACT THAT THERE IS NO DANGER OF THIS COUNTRY ADOPTING. THE SILVER STANDARD IN CONDUCTING THE BUSINESS OF THE COUNTRY, PROSPERITY WILL COME AGAIN AND, WITH LOWER TAXES ON THE NECESSARIES OF LIFE, EVERY KIND OF BUSINESS WILL BOOM AGAIN.—Pharos editorial, March 12. 1896. The free silver proposition is simply this: can you add value 'to anything by simply stamping it 'as weighing, so much and being genuine? Cam you make a dollar out of a shingle by stMQ; ing on it that it wotgihs an ounce and; is genuine pine? Can-you make 1 a dot; lair wit of a tin" can by stamping on it that it -weighs an ounce smd is genuine' tin? The government under free coinage simply stamps so niuch silver as weighing about an ounce and Jt then passes for what it is worth as silver bullion. Olbo next legislature will be a remarkably strong one if the Republicans win. The new nominations with the rnjen of arperlencc re-elected will make It a progressive and po.werful body. Harry'S .New and Roscoe; Hawkins of Indianapolis are the most recent .nomijnta.tlotns' for the Senate, being named by thie Republicans of ludi- yesterday. The niam who expects/to get the best of his neighbor by free coinage may as well vote for sound money. When it comes to a question of prout the capitalist will 'bo found protocttog himself i neatest loss. No honest man. is going ; to.accept bra>ss-fiJ3ed gold IH-JCKS in- return for good money loaned. And no honest man is .going'to offer tilmt kind of pay. No wage-earner wants to be paid In a flfty-cent.dollar. Wages will not increase 'and a dollar thait will buy half as' much robs tOte worklngnmn of half -Ills wages. A free silver dollar will be 'worth fifty cent*, and the laboring man will have >to take it for a dollar. Every worklmg-man, every bustacss .man is fighting for a sound dollar: Prosperity canmot conic ns a result of cheap monej-. The dollar earned should be a full doilar. - .

'Wild Ride of Two CycltaU O»*r-» .Couii,. - .••.-, • try Highway. Two cyclists, man and wife, had an exciting adventure while taking a spin ou their wheels over the Milford pike, New York, the other day. They were riding leisurely through the farm of John C. Wasncr, three miles below Milford, when they were startled by the bellowing of a big. black bull in a lot along the highway. The bull was in an angry mood and tried to rush through a barbed wire f eaoe toward the approaching cyclists. He. succeeded in getting half-way through the fence and his hind legs became entangled in the barbed wire. In. struggling to be free his legs were lacerated. Maddened'by.pain, theani- mal plunged forward, and dashed after the riders. The husband admonished his wife to race for her life, and each bent over their wheels and pedaled at a' desperate pace, with the bull in pursuit. He charged the fleet cyclists for nearly & mile, bellowing and snorting, before he gave up the. chase. Husband and wife rode a half mile further and reached Shannos utterly exhausted. CHURCH TO MOVE ABOUT. York ClentymeD Building an on Whe«U. Eev. E. C. Knapp, of the Baptist. Church of the Redeemer, in West One Hundred and Thirty-first street, New York city, has been receiving subscrip- ftions for some time for the construction of a Gospel wagon which he intends to be a memorial to his father, the late Bev. S. J. Knapp. It was at first intended that this church on wheels should be moved from place to place by horses, but it has now been decided to equip it with an electric motor and proper machinery to run it without the aid of horseflesh. Mr, Knapp will' himself preach from «?« vehicle on week days. There will also be a stage large enough to accommodate ten singers and a folding organ. . The clergyman is consulting wifli a motor vehicle firm in this city.and expects to have the. plan for its. construction • made in about a month. When finished the wagon will be the only one of ; -the kind in the world. It will cost about $1,000. '•*. _ • ____ The Old »nd- the New Wonun. At a meeting of the clever people in London where good stories were being told, one related a tole.hc heard oi the poet -Wordsworth by one who had been on very intimate terms with him. It seems that the bard was in ttic habit of thinking out his poems at night and in, .the early morning, and that he used to hiuse his wife and exclaim about lour o'clock: "Marie, get up. I have thought of a good word." Whereupon his obedient helpmate arose and«corded it upon paper. About an hour would elapse and new inspiration would seize the poet, and he would caUiont: .."MMbvge* op... I've thought ofa*e«er!wordrriE«iy-- body listened and«djnl».d tta!pr«*tlc*l * pirit of the poeti i- can woman pem« the rose in her hand; been my husband, I should have said: 'Wordsworth, pet up, I've thought of » bad word! * " DOG IPLAYS"-THE "PIANO. Bdocarcd Onlne Now Dcllirhtlnf Crltle* of -New York. Paderewslci is in New York city. He. is only a dog-, but he plays the piano. 1 Like the: original of the name, he has n striking head of hair and is one of the attractions at an uptown show- house. He is a black French poodle. The dog trots out on the stage, gleefully wagging his tail, and jumps up on a music stool in front of a piano three feet long. The piano has only one octave and each of the keys is four inches wide. Seated on his haunches Paderewski prepares to play, but first, be looks around abstractedly and gives his head a, preliminary shake. Then, the orchestra plays slowly through the one roue he knows. It is "The Last Rose of Summer," and the dog listens with his ears critically cocked. Then, with an air of giving the orchestra points, and at a signal from his master, he brings one. paw down, and strikes a note. The look of apparent conceit on Paderewski's face is almost as funny as his playing. He. evidently feels he is doing himself proud and his back stiffens as he goes on. Note by note, the orchestra accompany ies him, and this helps to keep up the tune when the dog, as he sometimes, does, strikes a false note. When the tune is ended he trots off the stage with a distinct air of relief. BEARS AS UNRULY PRISONERS. Pcrforminc Brnln* Make Set-loot Trouble In Klngrtbridee • Bastlle. Thepoliceof Ki)igsbridgestation,NeWi York, have captured a tartar—two, in, fact^-and the reserves of that district- did duty during the night within the. station vainly endeavoring to quell & : riot. The other afternoon three Frenchmen, with two performing bears, halted in front of the police station, and in defiance of the city ordinances the bears began to dance. All five were arrested and locked up. The Frenchmen were as quiet as all well-behaved Frenchmen should be, but the bears- Little Billie, weight a ton, height eight, feet in the altogether, and Taffy, weight a ton and a half, height nine feet— were no sooner locked in separate cells. than they took to acting like a couple of art students in'the Latin quarter. They smashed the cell benches, tore out the -water pipes, thus flooding the^ entire building, and in other ways de-! • ported -themselves disgracefully. The, , •Frenchmen were offered- their liberty^. Jijthey .would take the bears out of the! city..: They -were very . comfortable^ -thai* you. nnd perfectly willing tore-, moin in-rthe. station house over night. So the reserves were ordered to be in| readiness, and the foreign outfit will: be held until the court can pass upon, the case—that, is, unless Little Billie^ : and Taffy choose to leave before court:, opens.
