We know he will stand by in. Let us
nominate him on the republican ticket.
And another saith: "Behold G rover,

Then saith the plutocrats one to an

The following article app wred in the
New Nation just before 1h- n .Hoeratie
convention was held:
The friends of the people's party have
every reason to Ixj satisfied with the re
nomination of Harrison. Mr. Blaine
we should have been afraid of. He has
always lx?en extremely opiilar on th-;
Pacific coast and in the mining states,
where a large part of the new party's
strength is found, and his nomination
would have recalled to ?iu republican
standard an important el in ;nt of dis
contented voters which otherwise
would go to the third pat ty.
Mr. Harrison, on the olie-r bund, is,
with the possible exception of John
Sherman, perhaps the most unpopular
candidate in those states w here the
people's party expects to get the bulk
of its votes, who could have been nom
inated. He represents and champions
the financial p w against which the
west and south lsTyolt. In none of
his acts or utteramf as he even so
much as recognized theeX?ence of the
industrial and economic distress witn
which the country is seething, or sug
gested a single measure of reform or
indeed of progressive legislation in any
direction whatever. He stands in all
respects for things as they are against
things as they ought to be, and while
he may hold the vote of the dis
ciplined rank and file of his party, will
certainly fail to attract any
man who ever got far enough
to think of voting for a reform party.
Yes, people's party men have every
reason to be satisfied with the nomina
tion of Mr. Harrison.
The platform is an excellent fit for
tho man. So far as concerns any recog
nition of the present state of the coun
try or the needs of the hour, it might
as well have been written ten years ago.
Now, if the democrats will follow up
the republicans by nominating M
Clcv'fctan and putt-inf liiiii on one of
the usual democratic platforms, tho old
parties wiil have done all that is in
their power to make it easy for the
people's party to poll a big vote this

The Sub-Treasury in France
Bortraux, France, Oct. 13. 1891
Mr. H. L. Loucks Dear Sir.- In reply
to your letter of inquiry, will say that
the Bank of France has almost since its
establishment, early in the present cent
ury, loaned money on non-perishable
products, such as wheat, corn, spirits,
wine, metals, etc., provided such securi
ties were deposited in reliable ware
houses, or warehouses designated by the
directors of the Bank of France. Re
ceipts were of course taken for the same
and these become negotiable just as our
warehouse receipts in America Tho
amounts loaned upon products of this
discription were usually equal to about
two-thirds of their appraised value and
the rate of interest charged for the loan
was 3 per cent. The same rate is appli
cable at the present time.
