After ox-Congressman J. 0. Taylor
and Ilov. W. M. MeFarland of Cum
brldgo had spoken, Mr. MoKlnloy re
plied at somo length, saying:
"When tho war closed there woro
two great debts restlmr upon this gov
ernment. One was tho debt due to tho
men who had loaned the government
money with which to carry on Us mil
itary operations. Tho other debt, wns
duo to tho mon who had willingly
offored their lives for the preservation
of the American union. The old sol
diors waited on their pensions until
this great debt of tho government was
well out of tho way. They waited
patiently until tho government of tho
United States had reduced nearly two
thirds of that great money debt,
Thoy wanted every dollar of the debt
paid in tho best coin known to tho
commercial world. And every dollar
of that debt up to this hour has been
paid in gold or Its equivalent tho
best recognized money of the world
and every dollar of that debt, my
comrades, yet to be paid will bo paid
in mo tine unquestioned coin.
"Most of that debt Is out of tho way.
Tho great debt of this government
now is to tho surviving soldiers of the
republic, Thoro aro 070.000 pension
ers on tho honored ponslon roll of this
government to-day and tho govern
ment pays out of its public treasury in
peusioPsovorSHO.OOO.OOO every year to
tho so' tiers and sailors, their widows
and their orphan?. Every dollar of
that debt must bo paid in the best
currency and coin of the world. (Groat
cheering and cries of "Tho Republi
can party will see to that.") Thero
is nobody moro interested in main
taining n sound and stable currency
than the old soldiers of the republic
(cries of "you aro right, major"), their
widows and their orphans.
"Your oid commander, General
Grant (applause), whoso memory is
choris .-d by nil of you, performed
two great and conspicuous ucts whllo
President of the United States; one
the voto of tho inilation bill that

was tho Bigning of tho act for tho re
sumption of tho specie payments, that
placed every dollar of our money upon
tho sound foundation of financial
honor und unquestioned national
honesty; nnd tho old soldiers this
year, ns In all of the years of tho past,

Get Illund Dollars.
TormCA, Kun., Aug. 3. Cashier
Copeland of the treasurer's depar
ment of the Santa Fe railway com
pany yesterday gave, to somo of tho
employes of the general offices a
lesson in freo silver, by paying salaries
in that coin.
The first man to present his check
was a high salaried employe, who re
ceives S-dO a month. He signed tho
usual receipt, when tho cashier pushed
out of the little wlqdow twenty 310
packages. It was a big load, but tho
man managed to carry it away. Tho
next man thought lie was in no hurry
to receive his puy and t-aid he would
wait until the treasurer should get a
supply of paper money. Others wero
not so particular and took the silver.
Soon the story got noised about the
building that the company had got on
a silver basis and clerks presented
themselves armed with waste baskets.
So the jolco run along until it was ap
parent that should silver payments be
continued tho entire day would bo
consumed, when the cashier returned
to paper payments.

BAi.Tuioitn, Md., July 3i. Joshua
Levering of this city was last evening
officially notified of his nomination
for tho Presidency of tho United
States by tho Prohibition party. Prior
to tho notification, tho Maryland Pro
hibitionists hold their stato conven
tion and nominated electors in the
various Maryland districts. Thoy also
pat ailed tho streets of the city with
banners and music, tho lino of march
terminating at tho Lyceum theator,
where tho notification meeting was
O. W. Stewart of Illinois, as chair
man of tho committco on notification,
delivered tho address informing Lev
ering of his nomination, The latter
read from manuscript his letter of ac
ceptance, which Is, in part, as follows:
"Such an honor is worthy tho am
bition of any citizen of this great na
tion, but to iny mind it is to bo doubly
appreciated when tendered by tho
only political party which has had tho
courage to stand openly for tho pro
tection of tho home, the womanhood
nnd tho children of our country
against tho terrible ravages and de
struction of tho legalized liquor traffic.
Tho Prohibition party, conscious of
tho integrity of its motives and pur
poses, nnd firm in its belief that tho
question of a moral character should
take precedence over those purely
economical, has stood firm for a score
or moro of years agaiust all attacits
of ridicule, misrepresentation and
abuso mado against it; increasing its
numbers nnd gaining the esteem and
confidence of those who are not yet
wllllnf to be enrolled under the ban
ner of 'Protection to tho Home.'
"During all tho years it has steadily
pursued its way in educating the peo
plo to tho constantly increasing en
croachment ot tho liquor traffic,
knowing how it is undermining our
political and social life and interfer
ing with tho freo expression of tho
will of the people it the ballot box,
controlling to a largo extent tho legis
lative bodies of the country, adding
heavily to the burdens of the already
overburdened taxpayers, and, above
all, bringing suffering, sorrow, pov
erty and death to many of our fellow
"Tho platform adopted by tho con
vention meets my hearty approval,
and, though based on tho bingle issue,
is, in reality, sufficiently broad to
allow all to stand on it who are op
posed to the saloon and its consequent
evils, regardless of their views on any
public questions of the day.
'I do not underestimate the fact
that there are other questions of
grave importance over which the pub
lic mind is seriously agitated, and
whicli ure being pressed for speedy
settlement. Thero is the question of
a stable and nt the same time elastic
currency, equal to tho demands of
business for every section of tho coun
try, aud yet every dollar of which
should be of equal value and the whole
based on a standard equal to the best
Interest In tho world. Tho United
States cannot afford, without dishonor,
to have money bearing its stamp in
ferior to that of any other country on
"Again, a proper adjustment of tho
tariff so that labor can huvo its lust
protection without at tho sume time
giving undue protection to tho minu
facturing interest nt the cxpeuso of
tho great consuming portion of our
people, is of profound importance and
demands early solution."
Prior to the notification meeting,
Mr. Levering, In an Interview, said:
"I do not see any necessity for tho
sound money Democrats who do not
wish to voto for Mclvinley to nominate
a third ticket. Let them vote the
Prohibition ticket. We shall have
electoral tickets in every state and
those Democrats and others Who can
not conscientiously vote for either
Bryan or Melvlnley can voto for our
ticket. My views on the money ques
tion and on tho tariff question aro also
