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 would havo cast us upon the sea of a depreciated currency, and tho other 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, follo'ving their old commander, will stand by the financial honor of the government and will no moro permit our nation's integrity to be questioned than they would permit that ilag (pointing to au American flag) to bo assailed."

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. Ll Hung Chung's English Visit.

The Prohibition Candidate 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 held. 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 citizens. "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 thu globe. "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 In accorJ with tho views of these peo ple In general and are decidedly definite." TURKEY PROTESTS. Grrone's Assistance to Crotan Itebels Ob jected to l he Powers May Act. Constantinople, July 30.

The powers. It is stated, have de cided to send a collective noto to Greece declaring that the government of tho latter country must suppress the matters complained of by the Turkish government, otherwise the sultan of Turkey will be left to restore order lu Crete.

Gibbs, national Republican commit teeman from this stnte, was ono of tho few favored guests at a meeting of tho Eastern managers with Na tional Chairman Hanna to-day. Whother Mr. Ilatinn looked upon Mr. Glbbs as a porsonal repro&cntatlvo of Mr. Piatt or not, tho fact Is patent that Mr. Glbbs does represent that faction of tho Republican party in New York. Mr. Hnnna said: "Mr. Piatt was not invited to the meoting sltnply becauso ho Is not a member of tho committco Mr. Gibbs, the New York state national committeeman, was invited by mo to attend so that, ho may bo kept In touch with thot plans that may bo formulated. Mr. Glbbs is Now York's nutionnl commit teeman, nnd Is responslblo in a large measure, by virtue of his position, for tho result in this state. I feel confi dent thnt tho Republican party la New York stato will work harmoni ously for Mr. McKlnlev's election " John Wanamnker of Philadelphia, ex-Presidont Harrison aud Mr. Hanna. met nt tho Fifth Avenuo hotel last, night Mr. Hanna declined to go in to details as to thoquestionsdiscussed by tho trio, but said: "Mr. Harrison, will give us all tho asslstanco wo may rcquiroof him." Tho most Important question to bo discussed will boas to tho lines upon which tho campaign will bo con ducted. Frank S. Wltherbeo and a delegation representing tho American Protective Leaguo will arguo In favor of making tho fight upon tho tariff lines, whllo Melvlllo E. Ingalls nnd others of tho financial and corpora tion world will nsk that thu financial question bo kept uppermost. It is en tirely probable that Mr. Ilanna's ad vice to tho committco will bo for working on both these platforms as closely bound to each other. Mr. Hanna said to-dny: "Tho financial and tariff questions cannot, in my judgment, bo divorced. Our financial depression or prosperity Is duo in tho greatest measure to our tariff condi tions. Mr. MeKlnley shares this view with me." In carrying out this view Mr. Hnnna will suggest that tho Tariff league prosecuto the fight vigorously on its own lines, and thnt those Interested in tho financial question do similar work, tho national committee giving assistance. It is planned that an im mense amount of literature will be distributed. Mr. Quay was in consultation with. Mr. Hanna for about an hour, but neither would say hat tho especial, subject of their consultation wus. The nominee for vice president, Garrett A.

Buid: "I havo told Mr. Hanna that 1. intond staying in New Jersey during the campaign, frequently coming over to New York headquarters.
