It caused the •naetment o'f the law providing for the resumption of specie payments In.1870; Since then every dollar Bas been as food as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to ••• «rery measure calculated to debase onr currency or Impair tho credit of •nr country. We are therefore opposed to the; free coinage of silver except by International agreement with the lead- Ing commercial nations ot the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, and until then such gold standard must be preserved. "All our sliver and paper currency must be maintained at parity with fold, and we favor ail measures designed to maintain Inviolably tbe obll- fatioiis of the United States and all our money, whether coin or paper, at the present standard, the standard of the most enlightened nations of the earth." —Republican platform. . "We demand the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 1C to 1, without waltlug for the aid or consent of any Other cation. We demand that the standard silver dollar shall be a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all debts, public and private, and we fav- • «r such legislation as. will prevent .the demonetization of any kind of legal tender money by private contract."— ..Democratic platform. "We domand free and unlimited ", coinage of silver and gold at the present legal ratio of. 1G to 1."—Populist platform, 1892.

The boat is to be built by W T. Malster for the Lake Snbmarinecoui pany. It is intended for corninercia 'purposes and to restore to commerce much of valuable goods lost ot sea The boat wiU be built of steel. It will -be propelled by steam on the surface and by electricity from storage batteries on the bottom.of the sco. It can be .worked at a depth of 150 feet, which will allow it to go in some places out as far as 100 miles from the coast. It ia within this distance that most wrecks occur. : Thc trial vessel to be built nt the •Malster shipyards will bo about 40 feet long and 10 or 15 feet in diameter. It is made in order to be transported easily to Europe on a steamer, after n trial in the port of Baltimore. It will «arry a crew of six men and will be capable of stay ing on the bottom 40 hours without renewing the air. • The opening where the'divers will go out to work will be on the bottom, and tho water will b« kept ont of the apartment fr6m which they will leave the boat by air pressure. Plenty of compressed air- will be taken along, to be used when necessary. Powerful electric lights will il- .luminate the ocean bed for 200 or 300 ifeet around the vessel, as it goes hunting for wrecks. There will be a propeller iu the rear, and when it strikes bottom it will run on three wheels, two of which will be furnished with claws so as to act as additional propellers. The operator will stay in- the- front, behind' the electric lights. The relative air and water pressure will be shown by gauges for each. A derrick will be fastened on the front end, to be used in lifting wreckage. Freight boats will accompany the motor boat, being attached like trailers on tlic street car. They will remain open while the diver is nt work. He will load the wreckage on the derrick, which will swing around and -drop it into the freight trailers. When they are full the water will be forced 'out by the release of compressed a.ir, and- the freight boats will be made so light that they will float to the sur- 'face. . .

As ho emerged' from hJs hut at Bay Fragisland bridge he noticed a sort of blue haze hanging over the marsh south of the iisland, which appeared to be rising and falling. Armed with, a shortgun, he proceeded to investi- gato the phenomenon, and much to his surprise saw tbait the wavering blue line was na immense flock of cranes, most of wJiioh! were dancing with outstretched wings and fencing with the.'r bills.

The results of the expedition, are of .great scientific value. Tb.e explorers 'have forwarded to tihe Smithsonian in- ititute 'a collection of 1,500 specimens excavated from fche mines near Winslow, Chavez Pass and the Moqni reservation. : "Dr. Fewkes regards tho, n;'us near. Winslow as older than'the middle of Ihe Sixteenth century, no evidence of Spanish, or. American influence having been found in the excavations. Th« delegation of American manufacturers which sn.iled from New York last'May to develop commercial relations between South American republics and the Ccited States is now actively engaged in its work. Thc'lastword received from the merchants is to the effect that the Venezuelan government has welcomed the commercial visitors with wide open arms and has c.vtonded valuable concessions ns regards larifl! duties to American products. An'ex- hibition warehouse ban been established in Caracas, tho capkal city of Venezuela, for the display and sale of United States manufactures. Favorable conditions nre presented by the sister republic in that snch merchandise as ma-y 30 entered for exhibit will be admitted free of duty, the custons dues to be 30-id only in case of aetii.nl sale. The Kolc purpose of this sample warehouse enterprise is thot Venezuelan merchants may have an opportunity of see- ng, what American products they can. my to advantage. The enUre exhibi- ion will be Bn.der the a.uspices of the Tatiinal Association of Manufacturers md the general manager will have for issistants merchants who are thorough- y familiar with the respective lines of s. It is not intended that this exhibition shall be a source of profit to the association. It is desijtd only that tne proceeds shall be sufficient to cover tlio cost of maintenance. Bach exhibit booth will pay at least $32E per annum in addition to the expense of the transportation from this country to Caracas. Samuel Proskauer, United States con-' sul ar Puerto Cabello, is authority for the. statement that tbc Spanish-Americans are eager for more intimate trade relations with tliis country. He has carefully sxnmined in'to th« mattor, and Bays <;hat there is no doubtof the-friendly business feelings, apart from all political considerations, the natives being confident that their intercs-ts would be equally as well served ns by dealing with European merchants* American flOUT is now the-principal orticle of export from the United Statos, and the indications are tJiat in the near future some important Venezuelan tariff concessions will materially in crease the flour trade with Spanish America. American beers and wines ore hig-h.ly regarded by the southern re public, and this traffic only requires booming by promoters of breweries anc agencies to make it- a leader over German beer .and .French and Spanish wines. Furniture of poor quality is largely manufactured in Venezuela, but it is extremely expensive. The better quality of" furniture is .imported from France, as well as all household! decorations and furnishings. A splen did opportunity presents kself for the introduction of American furniture. There is an excellent market for high- grade shoes, bflts and clothing. There Js no leather to speak of manufactured iti Venezuela, kind this fact suggests that the country' would well be worth cultivating for the sale of leather, uppers and shoe findings. It is the expressed opinion of Venezuelan merchants that we coidd export with profit these products in 'addition' to the American manufactures which that country now imports—buildirg- material, hard-ware, common glassware, cutlery, fencing wire, mining and sugar machinery, agricultural implements, carriages, cars, steam-engines, lumber, cotton goods, certain kinds of wearing 1 apparel, all kinds of articles for home furnishing and decorating 1 , carpets, curtains, rug-a and novelties.

MAY PENSION OLD EMPLOYES. l'l«ii Arr»D|[<sd by Chicago, MilwaukM & St. Paul Hond. The employes of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul system, from high-sal- aricvl officers Ui switchmen, arc arranging the final details of a plan for the retirement of old men and their pensioning on. half pay. It is proposed that each man shall put into a pool one per cent, of his monthly, wages, and that after two j-ears all '* men who have been in the company'* services for 30 or more years may, if they desire, retire on half pay, the pension to be taken from the fund thus created. The amount paid in wages by the road is about $12,000,000 yearly and the fund nt the end of its second year will amount to about $250,000; which has been figured out as ample to inaugurate the scheme. It is possible the company may add to this fund, and in that- case there will be added sick benefit and disability funds, as the increased receipts may warrant. A plan somewhat similar has been, for some time under discussion ty the Great Kortheru road and its employes, differing, however, in detail. ' This road proposes that the men drawing only monthly salaries shall be assessed and shall pay 2% per cent, of their wagj;s. to which tbe road shall add a like sum, the whole forming a complete pension, sick, disability and accident fund. The wage pay roll of the Great Northern on monthly"scale is about $4.000,000. and under this plan there would be ac annual fund of about$2~00,- OOC., This road has until the present . business depression is over laid by the consideration of the scheme, but in- trnds to push itlater.
