AN EXCHANGE says that the cam-

by the sweat of his tongue.
AN EXCHANGE remarks that silver
was not demonetized iu '73. but the '
truth is demonetized in 1896.
Official reports received from
twenty one countries show that the
coinage of silver during the year 1895
nmntnted to 8113.672.200. These are
big figures, and yet the decline of the
metal goes on steadily.
Speaker Reed is sorely disap

To Tne partisans of the Hon. Wil
liam Jennings Bryan who point with
awe to his famous legislative achieve
ment of getting an elevator for the
Lincoln post office, an achievement
duly commemorated on the elevator
by a silver plate bearing the law

Tomtom Watson reply, with a just
pride in the great Georgian's fame.

it is true that the Watson dog law

SHOiTT.n Bpwnn b ftlocted and a law
passed for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver, the government
wonld be relieved from making the
16 to 1 dollars worth more than their
bullion value. It would stand on its
own bottom. The owners ef the bnl-
lion could take U to the mints, have
it coinod into dollars, and when
turned over to them by tho govern
ment tha would end tho government's
part of the transaction. Under free
coin acre the government would buy no
silver. It would simply coin other
people's bullion for them, and would
give no guarantee of its parity with
gold. Gold would at once go out of
circulation and these cheap dollars
would pass at their bullion value and
the value would fluctuate daily at the
value of wheat, pork, beans, cabbage.
or any other commodity. This would
be, as inevitable as the law of gravita
tion. Seward Blade.
IN his oastern speeches Mr. Bryan
abuses the t..wspaper men without
limit and iutimates that they are a cor
rupt and dishonest generation, and that
the country wauld be much better off
without newspapers so that the man
with a great mouth would bo the only
dispenser of information and advice.
Considering the sort of newspaper
with which Mr. Bryan has for the past
year or two been associated, and for
which he has been nominally responsi
ble, perhaps he is justified to some ex
;it by his experience in revilling the
uress. His paper was certainly second
to none in the country for its unreli
ability, its facility of flopping for a
consideration, for its monumental
cheek as a fakir of news and its readi
ness to misrepresent men and things.
But the press generally can afford
smile at Mr. Bryan's poor opinion Cl
its merits and his suspicion of its integ
rity. It is natural for a demagogue to
believe that all men are as dishonest
as himself, and that principle is a
mere matter of barter for money or
office. State Journal.

Hoke Smith's departure from the
pension department has up-to-date
caused no shedding of tears among the
old soldiers. He seemed to look with
suspicion upon every man who wore
the blue and never lost an opportunity
to cut down a pension or retard an un
fortunate in his efforts to obtain one.
The passing of Hoke causes but one
regret and that is that he did not re
sign three years ago.
Thomas B. Reed never covers up
his logic with an array of pompous
words. He goes after a proposition in
such a manner that "a fool though a
wayfaring man, mny understand." In
a recent speech he said: "This contest
is not between the east and the west.
There can be no such contest. Our
interests are identical. With their
growth comes our growth. We can
not go on alone. We have sent our
children there, our money istheie.

No misfortune can happen to them
that does not happen to us. We here
have full esteem for the pioneers of
tho west, and rejoice in their pros
perity. Every wise man agrees that
beyond the Missfssippi lies the great
wealth of the days to come. In
the developmet of this wealth we are
all interested, and wo, in the east are
not the unwise men to believe that we
ate not concerned in the progress of
tho west. Unfounded sectional differ
ences are witnout excuse, and it will
be woo to those who try to foment
them. The west is to vigorous not to
find out the truth and it is too valiant
not to follow it when found. All the
west needs is loanable capital, which
will develop its resources. No part of
the union is so concerned in restoring
confidence as the undeveloped terri
tory." Mcklnler Club to Be Organized
