ing tho action of himself and tho four
other members of- tho Montana dele
gation to tho St Louis convention in
rcsorvlng tho right of tho Republican's
of tno State to accept or roject tho
financial declaration of tho platform
thero adopted. The Senator says in
"As a Republican Z bollove in tho
free colnago of silver and protection
to American labor and American in
dustry. I do not bclievo in f rco coin
ngo coupled with free trado, and I do
not believe that freo colnago, coupled
with free trado, can be successfully
established and maintained by our
government. The freo trado policy
will rendor tho establishment of bi
metallism an utter impossibility, Tho
attompt to seouro freo coinage in con
junction with freo trado is an Utopian
dream. After looking tho whole sit
uation over, it will be found that tho
Bopublican party has not declared in
favor of the geld standard, but la
favor of tho restoration of silver. I
find in this particular that it differs
from tho opposition platform in tho
matter of method.
"I believe that tho Republican party
in this behalf is too conservative, but
as botwecn tho accoptanco of tho Re
publican party, with its conservative
expression on this subject, and tho
Chicago platform, with its freo trade,
State's rights, free riot and other ob-
iestlonablo features, I find no room to

unquostionablo duty of tho delegates
who assemble undor and in conformity
walth tho forms and usages of tho Re
publican party of this State, and
as delegates representative of other
people who reside hore, to placo in
the field electors favorable to McKln

tana should, in my opinion, indorso
tho entire Republican platform, ex
cept as to tho featuro declaring inter
national condition precedent to tho
romonctlzation of silver. For that
declaration this convention should
substitute a declaration for tho freo
coinage of gold and silver, in the samo
mannor as our stato conventions havo

shall stand for protection and freo

Mount Veunon, 111., Sept 10. Tho

AS VIEWED IN ENGLAND.
No Iteason to Shovr Interest In Either
London, Sept J 4. The St James
Gazette, commenting on tho rise in
tho bank rate and causes of the out
flow of gold, says: "At any rate, it is
tho American who dominates the finan
cial situation, and he is likely to
continue to do so until the election
in Novombor and afterwards. As
regards the prospects of the election,
most Englishmen assumo confidently
that McKinley will be elected and he
probably will be, although it seems to
us undesirable to speculate too freely
on tho elections in a country whero
public opinion is so easily irritated bv
anything in the nature of English
patronage or criticism. Englishmen
havo no particular reason to
regard with affection a party
leader whoso platform includes a
virulent denouncement of England
nd the open threat that English
debts will be paid in depreciated cur
rency. On tho other hand, there is no
occasion why they should enthuse
over a statesmen whoso chief politi
cal achievement has bcon to raise
Chinese wall industries around Amer
ican industries in order to malm
and penalize the British exporter.
Besides, it would do no good In tho
long run. If McKinley is supposed
to havo won with the help of Eng
glish gold and influences, tho reaction
will bo all the more intenso when
Bryan comes in, as is not improbable,
In 1000, even though beaten in No
vember. The object of all English
men is to be good friends with tho
people of the United States, if the
pestilential activity of the politicians
who misrepresent that people will
only allow it, and this end is not like
ly to be facilitated by too violent par
tisanship." Vlud-t'oatlnii Tests.
