Chicago, Juno 13. Tho Chicago
Times Ilcralil has boon asking mem
bers of tho Democratic national com
mittee, what should bo their party's
battlo cry In 1000, whothor "Frco Sil
ver" or '"'Down with tho Trusts,'' or
both. Tho nnswors of those that have
boon received aro publlshdd to-day.
Whita only ono of tho replies of these
Damocratlo lenders, tho roprcsonta
tlvo for Maine, tho home stuto of Mr.
Hryun's running mato In 1800, says,
"drop frco silver," thoy nro all but
unanimous In giving tho trust
question a promlnonco It never
has had In tho plntform of
their own or any other party.
With ono exception, all who speak
frcoly suggost that somo other issue
will dlvldo tho stage equally with free
silver. Somo sny "militarism" or
"imperialism" will bo ono of the
prominent issues. Others a fow
frankly emphnslzn tho trust question
as a big thing. Still othars speak for
a twin battlo cry. Just ono commit
teeman Bays ilatly: "The Issues of
1800 should bo tho Issues of 1030."
Tills ono exception Is Alexander Troup

Tlio couiinijttccmen who say free sil
ver must have first placo in tho plat
form, although generously combined
with tho questions of trusts, "militar

tho trust question llrst or lay much

J. U. Johnson, Kansas: "Nothing
has occurrod since 181M to shake the
faith of Democrats In tho principles
announced In tho Chicago platform.
Tho financial question Is still the dom

questions nro but collateral to it.
"The trust question has, sines 1800,
become an lssuo of tho llrst magni
tude. Tho Democratic states of Mis

year adopted drastic laws against
such combinations. Iho Democratic

W. II. Thompson, Nebraska: "Tho

Adair Wilson, Colorado: "In my
opinion thero is no doubt that in the
next Presidential campaign tho money
question will bo tho lending Issue, ns
tt was In tho last, and that bimetal
lism tho restoration of silver at the
ratio of 10 to 1 will bo tho battlo

Democratic party has always opposed
trusts, and possibly In view of
rocont events, in its platform of
1000 public attention may bo
more forcibly called to this question,
but in no such senso as to supplant

and replaco her by another ship, but
Captain Nichols preferred to remain,
declaring that ho did not want to
leavo his post until Paranaquc fell
aud tho coast from there to Cavito
was cleared of rabcls. Tho heat on
Saturday was most severe nnd tho
monitor was engaged all day In shell
ing tho trenches at Paranaquo and tho
rebels fleeing south through Las
Pinas, and also watching tho Amer
ican troops closing in upon tho towns.

rections for sovoral hours. Ho becamo
much worse at 3 o'clock and lost con

the afternoon. Several hours bsforo
his dcith he expressod gratification at
tho way events wero progressing, re
marking to an ofilcer: "Wo havo got
tho rebels thsrc at last."
