When tho conference was called to

blujro being a voluntary ono. but strong
ly lojrescuts the opinion of the comm

coss, therefore bo it
"Resolved, That tho Democratic
Earty in national convention asseui
led, should demand tho free nnd un
limited coinage of silver and gold into
primary or redemption money at the
ratio of 10 to 1 without waiting for
tho action or approval of any other
"Resolved, That it should declare
its opposition to the issuiug of interest
bearing bonds of the United States in
time of peaco and especially to placing
the treasury of the government under
the control of any syndicate of bank
ers nnd tho issuance of bonds to bo
sold by thorn at an enormous profit
for tho purpose of supplying the, fed

tho policy of gold monometallism.
"With a viow to securing the adher

A Large Sum of Hold Ilus llecn I'xported
to Kuropo.
Washington, Aug. 14. Tho treas
ury yesterday lost 81,050,000 in gold
for export to Europe, leaving tho re
ecrvo only about $l,rto0,000 above tho
8100.000,000 point.
Mr. Curtis, the acting secretary, said
ho had nothing to say iu regard to
tho matter. Ho had no i.pecifio in
formation and could not say whether
the syndicate would allow tho 8100,
000,000 to bo encroached upon or not.
None of the other otllcials would talk
in tho absence of Secretary Carlisle.
This heavy withdrawal has given rise
to a report that another bond issue is
impending, but there Is no one in
Washington who can speak authorita
tively on tho subject, or who has in
formation not shared by tho public.
Tho best public opinion Is that tho
syndicate will not allow tho reserve to
bo encroached upon until after Octo
ber 1, when, as generally understood,
its obligation ceases. Hut even in the
event of still further withdrawals, it
is believed that both Mr. Cleveland
and Mr. Carlisle would see tbo reserve
reach a point below any that it has
yet touched before thoy would tako
any steps to recoup it by another salo
of bonds or purchase of gold.
