Williams and L. M. Earl, the free sil ver delegates who walked out of tho national convention, signed this morn ing a declaration of independence which set forth their principles and recommended that nil parties and organizations opposed to the gold atundurd unito in supporting Senator Teller for President. A strong effort is being mado to got delegates from silver states who did not withdrew from tho convention to sign 'this declaration. It is tlio joint belief of all who havo been consulted from tho far West that there will not bo a successful Repub lican elector in the West outside of Iowa and possibly Minnesota. They further believe that there will not bo a Republican elected South of tho Potomac and the Ohio rivers. A mem ber of tho Montana delegation butr- gested that tho ibattle ground would be in Illinois and Indiana, and that Illinois., Indiana, Iowa. Minnesota, Michigan, West Virginia, Maryland, Delawurc, New Jersey and Connecti cut were doubtful states and tho Re publican party would have to carry nil of them in order to succeed. C1KNK1UI. rUSION" KIGUHED OX. There have been conferences with leading representatives of the Popu lists uud of the Bimetallic leatruo to induce them to work for tho indorse ment of Teller, and have suchu strong fus'on against the gold standard as to imh. tho Democratic national con ventlci also to indorse Toller as the fusion cand.date for President, They also conferred with ox-Governor Fran cis of Missouri and Democratic free bllvcr advocates, and were invited to send representatives to tho Demo cratic nntioual convention at Chicago next month to confer with tho party. The silver men say that Senator Teller is the man in their opinion on whom all tho anti-gold men could unite, but thai they are willing to co operate wherever they can consist ently do so to defeat the gold stand ard, and tlioy aro not scckincr to press Senator Teller so much as they are to secure relief from the power" of tho gold men. They have issued the following ad dress: Tl.KA TO THK I'EOPl.K. "To tho People of the United States: Obeying tho call of duty and justified by the common citizenship of this re public, we address this communica tion to the people and the forthcom ing conventions of tho United States. In doing so wo claim no authority or right other than that which belongs to every man to express personal con victions; but wo respectfully solicit the co-oporatlon of all who bolievo that the time has come for a return to the simpler uud more direct method of naming men for national service than has obtained in recent years. "Political party organization is necessary, becauso without it the indi vidual voter is dumb, but the party is only tho means, nutthecntL It is tho voice and not the sense. As'tlie world advances in this wonderful epoch of intellectual development and physical improvement, there Is constant re quirement for better things. The in dividual feels that requirement and heeds it, or falls in life's endeavors. Parties must also obey the same law. It follows, therefore, that tho moment a party shall choose to stand still or rotrogress, it is also inctliclcnt to nehiove tho end to which tho peoplo aro necessarily destined. There is no sanctity in more party name, and tho man: or necay is set on individual strength in a nation when tho absolute rule of political organization coerces men from tho truth for the sako of ex pediency and establishes insincere submission to partisan rule for the sake of power. l.NDKI'KNDKN'TS IN POLITICS. "Recognizing tho value and the splendid achievements of political par ties in this country, as elsewhere, wo ure yet constrained to believe that for more than twenty years no one ot them bus Leon entirely sufficient for the needs of tho people. The groat trend to better tilings resting In the heart and purpose of all men, has been stayed during tho latter part of this generation by the failure of par ties to express in their achievements the highest hope and aspiration of tho mass of the people who constitute tho parties. And there hos been growiug in this country swelling with each recurrence of national election a great mass of independent thinkers and voters, which failing within itself to control, has gravitated between tho two great parties. Since 1 872 (except ing possibly tho election of ISTu), the pendulum has swung from side to side with each four years. In 18?2 the Re publican party elected the President; in 1870 the Democracy claimed the election; in 1880 'ho Republican party elected; in 1884 the Democrats elected; in 1388 the Republicans elected; in 1b02 the Democrats elected; in 189(5 (until within a few weeks) it has been con ceded that tho Republicans would elect, "What has been tho causo of this mighty oscillation of a mass which this year has probibly obtained con trolling proportions? Every man can answer to himself. If he has boon an observer, if he has had interests that wcro aiTcctod; if ho has felt a hope to see greater justice done and has tccn that hope blnstod; If ho knows that tho gcnoral dissatisfaction has nrisott from the fact that party promises mado wore broken to tho pooplo by party performances, ho knows that soon as the election was over and suc cessful candulatas installed they be camo tho servitors of tho party mid tho advocates of a narrow mid non progressive policy within which alono there seemed to bo an nssurauco of selfish safety and partlsau approval. niWAT TllUTHS NOTA1U.Y LACKING. "During nil this period wo havo lacked a great constructive adminis tration. No now social truth hns been put forward In an eiTectlvo way. While- In all tho departments of physi cal llfo there havo been developments and achievements of ease and comfort to the favored of mankind. In tho still greater and. moro Important domain of social reform, wo havo stood still or retrogressed. It is not that the peoplo havo not felt tho stirrings of determination, that this inaction has undUrcd, but bocauso of tho rule of tho party which has largely controlled men In and out of office. It has be come a Bourco of reproach to any man that ho should daro to renounce al legiance to organization. Men havo bcon expoctcd to submit their views to tho dictation of conventions, al though it Is common knowledgo that conventions havo bcon swayed to views nnd declarations not tho most approved by tho mass of tho peoplo nor progressive for tholr welfare. "If tho voices which have soundod to us from overy state in this Union aro an indication of tho real feeling, tills venr is tho appointed time for tho peoplo to assert themselves, through such mediums ns may glvo best prom ise of tho achievement of justice. Rut whether wo aro mistaken or not con cerning tho general sentiment in tho United States, wo havo not mistaken our own duty in withdrawing from tho Republican convention, feeling that it Is hotter to bo right and with tho minority in apparent defeat than to bo wrong with the majority in ap parent triumph. JI0NETA11Y 11HFOIIM THK ORKATHST. "Wo hold that In tho great work ot social evolution in this country mon etary reform stands as the first requis ite. No policy, however promising of good results, can tako its placo. Con tinuation during tho next four years upon tho present- financial system will bring down upon tho American peo ple that cloud of impending ovil, to avcit which should bo tho first thought of statesmen nuu tho first prayer of patriots. Our very institutions aro at stake. To-day, with a rapidly in creasing population, with widely swelling demands, tho basis of our money is relatively contracting and the peoplo aro passing into a servi tude all tho moro dangerous becauso it is not physically apparent. The nutlon itself, as to other nations, is losing the sturdy courage which could make it defiant in tho faco of in justice and internal wrong. From the farmer and tho tradesman to tho gov ernment there is apparent the same shrinkage from giving offense, lest the vengeance of some offended financial power should descend The business man submits some portion of his judg ment and his will, und tho nation sub mits some portion of its international right, lest some mighty foreign cred itor shall make destructive demands. Where will all this cud if tho peoplo shall decline to assert themselves? Where will It end if the older parties in their determination to maintain themselves in power for power's bake alono shall refuse to recognize the right and tho hope of humanity. CIlKDITOIl NATIONS ATTACKKI). "This country cannot much longer exist f rco and independent against all tho rest of tho world, nor can its peo ple much longer bo frro in tho noblest sense of tho term if tho United States, a debtor nation, shall follow a policy dictated by creditor nations. Wo pro duce all of the necessaries of life. Other nations consume our products. In tho race for existence it is a con stant strugglo between producer und consumer. Our present system of money deliberately submits to tho do sire and tho profit of creditor nations, leaving us in tho muss and as individ uals, a prey to tho money-gathering and tho deadly cheapening of the old warld. As the debt to creditors abroad increases on the masses of tho nation, the price of human production on tho farm nnd in the workshop is decreased with appalling rapidity, exacting moro and moro from our citi zens to meet tho given demand uud holding over their heads a throat of tho day when confiscation to meet tholr obligations will leavo them bare and defenseless. "Tho only remedy Is tostop falling prices, tho deadliest curse of national life. Prices will never ceaso falling under the single gold standard. Iho restoration of bimetallism by this country will double the basis of our money system In timo it will double tho stock of primary monoy of tho world will stop falling prices and will steadily olevato thorn until they will regain their normal relation to tho volume of debts uud credits in the world, liimetallism will help to bring about tho great hope of every social reformer, overy believer in the advancement of the race who realizes that the instability of prices has been his deadly foe of our toilers and tho servant of tho foreign interest gath erer, liimetallism will help .to bring about the time when a certain ex penditure of human toil will procure a certain finuueial result. UNION OK AM. SIKSf I.VVI TKU. Who among tho great masses of our pooplo in tho United Stutes but feels that his lot would be better, his aspir tion take new wings if ho could know in the performance of Ins labor what would be the price of his product? Is not this purpose worth the attention of the people as individuals, and worth the attention of political con ventions yet to bu held in this year 180(1? Is not tliis so great an end that ull who believe in the possibility of 'at taining it by the means proposed can yjeld something of their partisanship both in conventions and at tho polls? It is in the hope that tho masses and the remaining conventions will have the courage and tho generosity to unito for this purpose that wo have dared to offer our views to tho peoplo of tho United States, and because in the past there has lacked a rallying point for tho masses who hold as wo do to this belief, wo venture to act, trusting that it will be.recclved in the same spirl of eonrllliUton, concession ami hopo with which wo put it forth. "Wo havo endeavored in a plain way to sot the matter hoforo tho oyos of our fellow citizens. Wo invoke tho union of all utoii nnd nil parties who bolievo that tho timo has como for tho triumph of justice. It is nu hour when tho peoplo may speak for themselves ns individuals and through conventions yet to bo held. It Is tho right of every citizen to indicate his preference. BKNATOIt TKLMCll'S .VAMI. l'linsKNTRO. "With this in view, wo offer to tho forthcoming conventions nnd to tho people the linmo of a man for tho prosldoncy of tho United States whoso llfo In public and in prlvato repre sents those distinguished virtues which adorned tho days nnd tho dcods of tho earlier timo of this republic, n return to which virtues Is requisite for tho prosperity and contentment of tho peoplo nnd tho pcrpotu ity und commanding oxnmpla of freo institutions. That tiamo is Henry M. Teller, a man of tho people and for tho peoplo. Ho is of no sec tion. Ills experience and scrvico, his devotion to tho common justice nnd tho common causo of his follow citi zens has beeti as wldo ns tho country. Wo bcllovo that tho people of tho United States havo him in their hearts us ho has had their interests in his purposo through all tho work of an exalted Ufa "It is not merely ns tho exponent of monetary reform that wo present this man to tho people. It Is true that ho has waged a mighty war for tho rcstorrtlon of tho money of tho con stitution, nnd his namo has been iden tified as that of no othor living mnn with this great causo. Hut had his ser vices beon loss demanded and less no ticed In this direction, tho peoplo would still havo recognized in him for other labors a statesman of tho purest type. His only poverty has bcon that of purse. In all things clso in tho gon crositios of man to mnn, In kindliness of deeds for his follows and in tho study and the doings of a mighty career, ho has bcon one of tho most opulent Amcrlcau citizens of nnv age. APPLAUDED IN COLORADO All INirts of the Htuto Crlchrnto the Holt Laudation for Teller. Dknveii, Colo., Juno 20. Tho news of tho notion of Senator Teller and tho Colorado nnd Idaho delegations in withdrawing from tho national Re publican convention has been re ceived throughout tho Stato with tho greatest enthusiasm. In Denver thero will bo n demonstration when Senator Toller returns, which will be by Thursday, and Senator Cannon of Utah will 00 the feature of another demonstration when ho passes through.

DETROIT TRIBUNE BOLTS Itepuillntcs the Platform a "Damnably Unpatriotic! nnd Un-ltepubllcan." Dktiioit, Mich., Juno 20. Tho Tribune, ono of the oldest dally news papers in the West, and tho leading Republican paper of Michigan since tho birth of tho party, unequivocally repudiates tho nctipn of tho Repub lican national convention In declaring obsolutoly for tho gold standard ns against bimetallism. It says that while tho party's candidate is all right, "tho platform on tho only important issue beforo tho country is damnably unpatriotic and tin-Republican. No one's Republicanism can bo impugned if he continues to stand squarely on tho national and stato platforms of tho past, and if ho repudiates utterly tho false und un-American fulmina tion of St. Louis conspiracy," and udvises active campaigning against, "gold monometallism congressional candidates." PETTIGREWS SURPRISE. The South Dakota Senator' Ulaaffectlon Cuiucd it Herniation. St. Louis, Mo., Juno 20. The fact that Senator Pcttlgrow of South Dakota joined the silver Republicans in their bolt of tho convention proved the surprise of the day. He said alter leaving tho hall that' he had formed tlm deturminutlon to join this move ment several wocks ugo, and as soon as it bceamo apparent that a gold standard plank would bu adopted. He, however, kept his intentions so well to himself that not even his fellow-delegates from South Dakota were aware ot them Hndlookodas much surprised ns did others when tho Senator's name ns ono of the com mittee who signed tho protest road in the convention was announced.

The effect mllitairo Is much sought after In tallor-mado gowns, ns It hns boen all season in enpos and coats. Perhaps It Is but nn excuse for tho smart braid decoration so popular, or it may bo because tho style Is so usually becoming. Tho passion for braiding has even entered tho realm of linen gowns, and we see many of the moro costly models enriched by quanti ties of beautiful hand braiding and done in a variety of colors. Black braidings aro in vogue on gowns ot all colors and are an exceedingly effective finish. A novel gown in thin navy bluo silk sergo has the bodice beautifully en rlohed by braidings ot black silk. The skirt of the serge is wldo and flaring and finished with bows ot narrow braid at tho top of tho deep hem. It la lined throughout by way of color, with Persian silk In shades of violot and Rreon.

Answer: A young man of 17 Is not too young to go in ladies' society, Tho acquaintance and society of re fined young ladles would be the very beat safeguard tor a young man at that age. It would Improve his manners better than any book ot etiquette that he could study, since their merry, good natured raillery at his defects would help him early and easily to avoid those things that would render him awkward In company, and which ha might not of hlrasolt discover.
