Spinner, late treasurer of the United States, in, a signed article opposing an increased coinage of silver—tho very last product of his pen and published shortly before his death—warned the people of the United States against tho very condition that now confronts them, and predicted a most disastrous financial panic in the event of tho free coinage of silver. Eo closed his argument with these words, and they possess at this time almost tho force of a propheBy f nlfillod as well as n peculiar interest: I nm nearly 88 year, old, and for more than half a century have watched and taken an Intercut In the monetary nail commercial afliilr* of our conntry. I have no Intercut of friends or self to subserve, lam -tau.him confrontlug ail opca grave, and eipoot soon to .lok Into one. I lovo my country urently, and I lovo It, people more. The prosperity of our country ami tlie happiness of It. people that now are, and of the generations thtit are to follow, are the subjects of solid- tnde aoar.it my heart. I cannot bear to sink Into that (fravo without giving thin my last note of warning. If the country would avoid a grant calamity, let It restore gold to bo the solo standard of volum and tho consequent measure of all transferable commodities. Fortify the United State, treasury with (told coin, gradually replace Hie warehouse silver certificates with treasury notes of all denominations, from a 5 cent to a »1,000 uote, based upon and redeemable from the gold on deposit lu the treasury.

Such an ar. runKcmcnt of tho currency would comttttute tho treasury of the United States Into a unfo Insurance oinco against commercial revulsions and monetary panics. On the other hand, an Illy constituted and depreciated circulation medium, a dual standard of values, a redundant, intlnted currency bu««l on a greatly depreciated silver coin, such iw tlie silver cranks dculre, are tlio she-wolves that will breed and litter want of Tonndcnoo, distrust, fears, failures and panics upon our country, and disaster and ruin upon our people. The monetary course now being pursued Is as sure to bring disaster ns ofleot follows cause, iet the people bo warnad of the danger tliat Is before them. ^ I VW»'Wi*^> . i CONVICT LABOB.

'with the shuttlecock values of bullion, whilo tho Republican dollars are ever iand always 100-cent dollars because maintained by the world's standard of gold. The free coinage countries that [Democracy would have us line up with are China, Japan and Mexico, where the workingman is a serf and always a tenant. Labor is dependent upon capital for employment. -Business fills its arteries from 'the coffers of capital: Enterprise gets its inspiration from the comradeship of capital.- Capital is tho oxygon of commercial and industrial iife, but the mainspring of-its energy is confidence. The success -of- Democracy and free coinage will produce such a paralysis of confidence that capital will not flow into the channels of industrial investment, and a condition of diatroso and business demoralization is as certain to follow as does death when, the heart ceases to boat, and the sufferers will be those who depend upon daily employment for daily bread; WHEN M'KINLEY IS .ELECTED. With the election of McKinley and a Republican congress will come the reenactment of reciprocity 1 and an Increase of duties sufficient, at lea^t, to meet'tho expenses of the government. Reciprocity guarantees enlarged mar- *eta for the surplus products of every •farm In Indiana. The revival of confidence consequent upon tbe ability of Uncle Sam to'pay his way as 'he goes, without selling bonds to make Saturday night reach over until Monday morn- Jflg, will energize every ^industrial enterprise in the land, give back to labor its profitable payroll, and thus increase the Consumption of the staples of life, now •o low because of the enforced idleness 'of unemployed worldngraen. The home •market is dependent upon the prosperity 'of home industries. Idle men means Wpty cupboards. Onr foreign market jfor farmers depend largely on reciprocity. Under Harrison we were adding to our list of consumers by a reciprocity of commercial favors. Under Cleveland 'and his free trade lunacy, reciprocity was blacklisted and these new customers forced into other, markets. ' The homo markets and the foreign markets iare what bring prosperity to the farmer, and this is the McKinley mission of Republicanism. THE flEKMAN PHAEAJVX Had the McKinley tariff not been repealed, our national income would have paid all of Uncle Sana's expenses without tho necessity of issuing bonds in times of pence. Reciprocity was opening profitable markets for our grain and stock, and ere this every surplus prod- not of the farm would have been in demand from tho countries beyond the seas. But Democratic free trade abrogated reciprocity and reduced our revenues. '. Markets lowered prices, because abrogated reciprocity cut off the Mo- Kinley demand. The treasury borrowed money to pay expenses because tho repeal of tho McKinley bill beggared revenues, and so the disaster was a double- under, placing its heavy hand on the producers and filching with its skeleton fingers infinitely more money for current expenses than the free trade policy produced. The free trade lunacy of Cleveland's administration has cost this country, directly and indirectly, more money than did the suppression of the rebellion.' It was a popular measure before the people in 1892. Disastrous as has been its practical application, it does not compare with the ruin that will, come with a change of our financial policy to the wild-cat level of a free mintage of silver. Just now the Indianapolis Sentinel is 'busy with search warrants hunting up the deserters from tho Republican party, the camp changers • who in every national campaign give exhibitions of political gymnastics. In the list from Marion, for instance, Populists, Prohibitionists and assistant Democrats of years standing were paraded in Indian ' file as Republican old-timers fleeing in their wrath from the sound money platform of -the g. o, p. to the Mexicanized financial heresies of the Siamesed Detno- cratio-Populist -combination. In the collaboration of 30 or more names,- not three.of them were Republicans who heretofore have been such 805 days in any one year. And' so in the other counties that the-double leaded paragraphs have .proclaimed oa the commencement of the.ground swell. The disappointments growing out of political conventions, and the unrewarded services ,of local statesmen whose politics ore intimately connected with a desired pull, are tbe basis of more changes'.to the Bryan column than, any convictions of the beneficence of free silver. The beating of toms-toms and the hurrah tactics of .claiming the earth is calculated to catch those who are ever on the .mountaintops looking for green postures and the softness of a public snap.

Sharp, in charge of a party of experienced wreckers, left New York the other evening on the Merritt wrecking schooner, Edwin Post, for Jones' inlet, on the Long Island shore. The object of the expedition is to locate the wreck of the American baric Mexico, which sank off the inlet CO years ago, and to recover some of the wealth which went flown with the vessel. The Mexico left an English port, bound for New York, in 1836, She carried as passengers a wealthy English family named Cooper and wealthy relatives and friends to the number of SO, The intending colonists had converted their property in ling-land into money, which they carried in canvas bags on board-the ship. K.ich of ithetn had also cash in belts about their -waists. The women had jewels. Off Jones' inlet a gale drove the Mexico onto the shoals. The little craft capsized and finally slipped into deep water. The captain, cook, four sailors and two passengers were the only survivors. The bulk of the wealth, estimated at $500,000, went down with the bark. In, the vessel's cargo there was also a large amount of sheet copper,. Jv T o successful effort, it is said,'has ever been made to locate this wreck! Tho Edwin Post la supplied witi the most approved wrecking apparatus, and as the Mexico was built of ash, Capt. Sharp hopes to find the bnrk in a fair state of preservation. For sale by the following drugelste: B. F. Kcesling, general agent; Bel Fisher, Johnson Bros., W. H. Brlugburst, G. W. Hoffman, D. B.
