It caused the tnactment of the law providing for the •rtmjmptlon of specie payments In 1879; •Inee then every dollar has been as /food as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to •tery measure calculated to debase •or currency or Impair the- credit of >.tnr country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except by .International agreement with the lead- Ing commercial nations or the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, , md until then such gold standard must be preserved. "All our silver and paper currency •mat be maintained at parity with fold, and we favor all measures de. signed to maintain Inviolably the obligations of the United States and all pur •money, whether coin or paper, at the - present standard, the standard of the •lost enlightened nations of the earth." —Republican platform. - "We demand the free and unlimited eolnage of both gold and silver at the •present legal ratio of 1C to 1, without waiting for the aid or consent of -any •ther nation. We demand that the •Undard silver dollar shall be a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all . iebts, public and private, and we fav- -»r such legislation as will prevent the Semonetlzatlon of any kind of -legal lander money by private contract." — Democratic platform. "We demand free and unlimited eolnage of silver and gold at the present legal ratio of 1C to 1."— Populist platform, 1&02. "We hold to the use of both gold and •liver as the standard money of the c«nntry, and to the coinage of both «old and silver, without discriminating •gainst either metal or criarge for mintage, but the dollar unit of coinage •f boih metals must, be of eq-n.iT Intrinsic and exchangeable value or be ad- lasted through International agreement or by such safeguards of legislation as jhall Insurt tho maintenance »f the parity of the two metals and tlic «qual pofv'cr of every dollar at all times In the markets and in payment of debt,' •nd w- demand that all paper Currency •hall be kept at par with and redeemable In such coin.

TEIALS OF AN LNVENTUR. He Declares the Government Has Used Many of His Ideas. Thinks the Trifling Sum of 830,OOO,OOO Will Square Things—Clalm« to Bo Inventor of Rifled Cannon and Other Unique Appliance!. The mostunique cUUmant tlie government has had to deal with for years has just presented his caec. His name is Joseph Custer and his home is in St. Louis. He demands from thi* government the trifling sum of $30,000,OGO as payment for the use of a gun which he claims to have invented and which lie says was adopted by tic secretary of war. . It is not generally known that Mr. Custer is the inventor of the rifled cannon. Such, however, is tlie case. The rifled cannon, however, is only one of the ideas' which he claims the government has filched from him. Following upon it, as a natural successor, was the "pioneer shot." This is an immense bullet, so constructed ns to afford accommodation for two or three men. When it is fired into the enemy's lines the bullet will do considerable damage. Some small holea permit the pioneers to make o survey of the surroundings. If con- ditious arc favorable Ihcy - touch a spring which releases them fruro confinement and they ravage the enemy's country. If conditions are hot propitious for ravaging they remain in the etrong shell secure fromattask, .TCiMiin the bullets are stores of provisions and also a few lanterns, Mr. Custer having figured it out -that .the bullet might, sometimes be used on nifi-li ts when the moon does not shire. | Mr, Custer proposes also to attach, knives to bullets, so that they will cut, • telegraph w'ires. To again string wires they will bo attached to bullets and fired back into their respective places. I The most formidable weapon devised i by Mr. Custer is a gun which will slioot I in all dii-ections at the- same time, so : that tlic enemy will be struck 120 mat- | ter where, it stands. Tlic plans and specifications for this and other devices of Mr. Custer arc- now somewhere in the department of ordnance of the United States army or else they are ; in the hands of the board of fortifications. Mr. Custer does not know which, j For three, years Mr. Custer has been | endeavoring to regain possession of the , papers, but Win government k.-jows n good thing \vhf:n it sees it and will not loosen its hold on the documents. Mr. Custcr has iio\v written to Secretary Francis. Mr. Francis comes from St. j touis, and Mr. Custer hopes the secre- • tary's regard for li.is fellow townsman ' will induce him to have tne cloJm paid. ATHLETICS FOR SOLDIERS. Gen. Mcrrltt, «f Department of SDnoourl, Orders a Course of tiymfinsties. Maj. Gen. llcrriu has issued a. circular to the department, of the Missouri directing a thorough course of military gymnastics at the post-s of bis command during the next four months ami prescribing conditions to secure uniformity in the exercises. Iu addition to the regular drills, a course of light work with diirabbolls, barbells, jumping", vault-ing, running, equipped and athletic competitions are recommended. Abdominal breathing is to be taught, commencing with half-minute runs uiougn a man nas exercised to excess. Gen. Merritt declares tli:it-the fundamental principle of all physical training is to impress upon the men that they must put tbeir whole mind into the work. Full instructions arc given for scaling- walls of various heights by- groups of men. VALUABLE CLAY DEPOSITS. Bed of K»ollno, UneJ In Malting China, Discovered In Oregon. A party of Pont landers, while pros T pecting in eastern Oregon recently. caine across a bed of knoline, the clay from which the finest china ware is. made, and- a number of eJaims were immediately stal;ed out. Samples of it-h« kaolinc were sent to a Delaware pottery, cue of tlie largest in the United States, with the request that the clay, be worked into cliinaware. With the return of the ware came le-ttcrs from the potters asking as to the e.xitent of i the field and its distance from rail com-, ! municatiion. They said that the qualitj- of the clay was f u!3y equal to that formerly imported from England and in: •which country Iliey were forced to place tbeir sole dependence. The mines are five miles from Kunt- ington and tl>e deposit is apparently inexhaustible.

Nothing surreptitious about this either. All done openly and above the table board. Lookr ing along the list it will be" found that the young ladies consumed 250 barrels of flour, ] 0,000 oranges and lemons, 14,000 bananas, 105,000 quarts of milk, 1,200 bushels of potatoes, 97,000 pound* of fresh meats, 10,000 pounds of smoked | meats, 5,000 pounds of chickens, 5,000 pounds of turkej's, 5,000 pounds of $sn» 40,000 clnras, 105,000 gallons of oysters, 18,000 pounds of batter, and last, but not least, by any means, in a Vassor girl's composition, 32,000 pounds oC sugar. In the ibove DO allowance is made,. it will be i-oticid, for the "stolen fruits," such as forbidden luncheons- and candy smacks after retiring, nor is any attention pnid to the tea, coffee, vegetable* and sweetmeats.
