\Vo assert that the only remedy for the
purely metallic : financial troubles is to open
the mints of the nation to gold nnd silver
on equal terms at the old ratio of sixteen
pirts of silt or to ono of gold , wheneter
silver bullion can bo exchanged nt the mints
for legal tender silver dollars , worth 100
cents of that money. That llB'i ' , grains of
standard silver bo worth 100 cents , nnd us
commerce equalizes tlio prices of nit com
modities throughout the world , whenever
2' ' grain * ! of standard silt or IB worth 100
cents in the United States they shall bo
worth that everywhere clso ami cannot bo
bought for less.
While wo urge tint Bitch roilts would
enhance thn price of silver bullion , it Is
suniclrnt for us to know that a similar c.xso
can bo made in the price of every kind of
property , except cold credit. In the civilized

The resolutions continue proles ling
against the repeal of the Sherman act with
out the pass igo of a free coinage act , declar
ing that It would pluntro the country into
greater linanclal misery : declare that Its
maintenance , by bimetallism , at the ratio of
1(5 ( lo 1 will Increase our coniJicreo with all
the silver using countries of the world with
out decreasing it with the nations which buy
our raw m net ial , and will compel the adop
tion of bimetallism by the nations of Uuropn ;
asserts that the uresutit financial calamities
tire not due to the Sherman act , because the
same state uf iifTaits exists in all the gold
standaid countries ; that our trouble arises
from a contraction of thu currency ; that the
fact that the national currency wns not de
preciated shows that the distrust is not of
the government , but of the banks which pro-
clpltated ihls crisis on iho country in an
effort to control silver legislation , and po-
litcly asks the bankers to step aside and
irlve the masses n show.
For the considci.itlon of the convention ,
but not as a pirt of thu plntfoim , the com
mittee also reported the following , which
was unanimously adopted ;
"The committee further recommend that

CAMP LINCOI.V , Summon , Neb , Aug. 2.
[ Special toTuu lire J In his welcoming ad
dress .vestcrday Colonel Schuler , who is a
grlrzled ohl veteran , with a face beaming
with the milk of human kindness , said that
it was not the old suldlcts nh nc to whom ho
spoke , but to their vvlveis nnd daughters and
sons , whom ho considered old soldiers too , In
n way. Ho wanted everybody to feel that
they wore welcomed to Camp Lincoln , and
could pitch In heart ana soul and make the
most out of a good thing an occasion to
him of exceeding moro interest than the
irreat Wet Id's fair , now charming Its millions
of pcoplo at Chicago. Ho addc 1 that no ono
need have any feats of molestation from auy
source ; that stiiet mllltiry discipline was
enforced throughout the encampment ; thut
the guards weio always at their posts , ns
well as a goodly squad of police and deputy
sheriffs ; that they should all feel ns safe
as If they were In their own homos. He
consldcicd a reunion of the old soldiers a
sacicd thing , uud no place for anything but
thu exchange of goodwill and affection.
After thu colonel had retired , amid the
shouts \ of his old comrades , W. P. Conway ,
. . .
a private of the Ninety-fourth Illinois , nnd
a man who saw much thrilling service
with the Army of the Gulf , took the stand ,
and In an inimitable way sang "Undo Abe
Will do Huglu and do Fhio1 , " A darky melody
Unit fairly too1 : the big crowd by storm. Of
course , ho had to come again and ngaiii , nnd
his "Old Gtavbick" and "Marching Thiough
Georgia , " were ticats of a genuine kind.
The entire assemblage took part in cbor-s
of the latter song , and tlio vclumo of sound ,
as it arose from the shady grove , echoed far
away down the Republican's lovely valley.
Hurrah ! liurr.ihl ne bring thu jubilee ;
Hurrah ! hurrah ! for Ihu Hag thut made
jou fiee
So wo sang tlio chorus from Atlanta to the
sun ,
AMille we were in irchliiK through Georgia.
Those aio the lines that rekindle all the
latent tire in the old soldier's heart , make
his oits ! sparkle over again with thu bril
liancy of iouth , sends a tingling through his
nerves and sols his heart to bounding as no
lllgnt of otatory or sound of cjmbiil , diuui
and brass can evei do.
Thuio weio songs and short stoiles by
other old vetcians , but the tall Kansas man
had thu call , and he was obliged to favor
the crowd once more , and again just befoio
the closing of tbo ceremonies.
Tno Tntort ilnlnc Aililrossos.
The address of Prof. Andtons was a
flue ono , and held the crowd entapt through
out. Ho said this great reunion was very
suggestive of Iho incidents and principles of
our late civil war.
" 1 do not ask " ho "
you , said , "to dwell cn-
litcly upon the inestimable sacrifices of
thosodavs , but rather upon thu fact that
watfaio has been an important factor in
human ptogiess. Recount the intellectual
warf.uo which has led the race from the
daiktipss of the past to tbo glory and light of
the present. Recount the spiritual warfare
which has conducted the race fiom the
dangers of the p ist to the serene heights of
ficoconsiJonce Recount the military war
fare which has aided iu bteakingdowu thu
powers of mouarchy and biingingin free
representative gciveininont Ansvverim ; to
these Hues of warfare , tl-u race has matched
in tilumph fiom the land of bomlago. "
In his peroration Mi. Androtvs soared in
lofty realms , and the old soldicts and tlieit
ft lends attested to their appreciation in long ,
loud and vigoious chcots.
Colonel O. H. Coulter was the 1 ist spe ikor
intioduced , and he , too , made a hit. His ad
dress was moio of the niituio of a chat , easy ,
gtacoful and highly ontei talnin , about
cquulli bilanccd us to pathos and humor
Ho talked light at the old fellows iu blue in
a lunguige they all spoke ; told them things
they had piobabli ho ml a huncltcd limes
before ; made them laugh one moment and
draw their sleeves acioss their oiestho
next. Of coinso , when hugot throusli thoio
was an outbuist ofvheeis that must have
made his heart palpitate with the pleasing
feeling tlmt he was one of them His windup -
up was a unique one.
"If theio are any men in this great cro wd
of old vvaniors who went with Sherman to
the sea , let them stand up "
Asi \ by magic there wcro a couple of
bundled manlv forms , some of them bent
with ago ami decrepitude , iot clothed , despite -
spite nil this , iu the fullness of their manli
ness , standing In the aisles und among the
"Ileio , my follow cltl/ons , " exclaimed the
facetious colonel , "is a fair s implo of the
chicken thieves of the Army of thu Cumber
land "
And then the old follows fairly howled in
ecslacy , shipping cich other on thu bick
and giasping bands , as if ihuy had just mot
after a p irting of a score of ye irs
Coloiiol < milter .Vftor Smith.
In a btiof interview'witn Colonel Coulter
on the probiblo notion of the Gland Aimy
of Iho Republl-j concerning Iho suspension of
pensions , he said. "Why , I believe that us a
body It will suicly take stops to test the

tri lnr to lire lie out of the fold I think It is
the duti the Grand Army owes itself to
make this fellow come into com l
.ind bo made to prove hta claims of
fiaud on the p u t of pensioners lu the past
the cii.ind Army has
been too lenient in regard -
gard to these tilings , and it is time now for
uvory fllltcoroi old soldier In any position to
speak out just what ho thinks about the
ma ttcr Thci o hat o been aspei aions cast on
the old homes of ' 01-5 , iho men who do-
seitc'd liiesido and homo to piotcct the flag
fiom just such icbels as Hoke Smith , and if
they lenmln silent and passive under this
foul attack , I will think thu old fires of those
inumoraulo duvs have died out indeed , And
I might add th it there Is no bettor or more
appropriate plico than at just such reunions
as this , when thu slaiidcicd voluiaus are all
together , of giving voice to their sentiments ,
and It is to be hoped that this opportunity
will not bo allowed lo pass unimproved "

LIXCOI.V , Aug. 2 [ Special Telegram to
Tun Bbu. ] Uccelvor Haiden of the defunct
Capital National bank has gltcn terbal
notice to State Treasurer B irtlcy that the
claim of the stale for the amount of Its de
posit , something like t.Mrt.OOO , will not bo
allowed on the ground that the slate's
money had never been deposited In the bank ,
or that the bank had never got Hie benefit
of the money.
StaioTicasurerHartley asked Mr. Hn.vden
to glvohlm written notice of the decision.
This the receiver agreed to do as soon as
possible , but up to this evening it had not
found its way to the treasurer's ofllcc.
Hecelvor Ha.vdcn was seen by TUB BIT.
correspondent this evening , but was ex
tremely reticent lu regard to the subject.
Ho admitted that It was true
that ho hud decided not to allow the claim
of tba state , and that he was acting under
ndtico from the attorneys , Messrs Cobb &
Harvey and G. M Lambcitson. lie had
hoped to have placed n written opinion in
the hands of the state trcasuior befoto tlifs ,
but the absence of Mr L imbertson , w ho had
been called to Wisconsin by the death of .1
sister , had delated the matter. Ho pre-
feriod not to discuss the matter further.
llx-Treasurer Illll IK Not U'orrjliiir.
The question has boon raised ns to
whether this action upon the pait of the re
ceiver has not prejudiced the case of ox-
Treasurer Hill , who Is defendant in the suit
brought by Judge Wukolev on bahalf of Gov
ernor Crounso to recover the amount de
posited in the bank when it closed its doors.
The cx-treisurer wns seen ut his homo
by Tin : early this ov cuing. He stated
that ho had heard of the mailer onl.v this
aftctuoon , and that ho had talked with At-
torneis Cobb & Harvey In regard to the
matter. Thcv had assuted him. ho said ,
that no decision had as \et been
reached ; that iho attention of the
comptiollor of the currency had been con
sulted , and that oflleial had icfeired the
question bacit to the nttornu.v for tin opinion
The ox-Iteasuier knew nothing futthorNin
togaid lo Iho now matter , and did not show
any indications of uneasiness over the new
and unexpected developments in the case.
Ihe de.ision of liucolver Hat don not to
allow the stato's el ilm has also given a new
compileition to the case which is likely to
drac In suvetal pcoplo who have notup to
the picscnt time llgutcd prominently in the
Itnlrir * u I'nrtliK'iit Point.
When Treasurer' Battlov assumed the
duties of hia onico
hciccclvcd fiom his pic-
docessor certificates of deposit on the
Capital National bink for over fciOO-
000 Those certificates woio deposited
in the bank the next day by .Deputy
urof Hartley to thb credit of the state treas
urer. Iho bank accepted- the cot tiflcates ,
credited the ontlro amount to the state
treasurer , opened a now account in n
now pass book and then destroyed
the certificates Treasurer Baitley stated ho felt that Wl7OOJ ! was too much to
keep on deposit in auv one bank , and with
the view of reducing it us speedily as possi
ble checked out something like $ -10,000
within the first few dais after bo
-had assumed his olllce It was this
extraordinary and unexpected demand of the
state tieasutct tliit precipitated the failure
of the Dank. Now the question has pie-
sented itself to sevoial prominent finan
ciers in Lincoln , how is Receiver
Havdon to trcit the $ IOOOJ piirt out on
checks signed by State Trcasuicr Butlei ?
If he holds that the st ito funds wore not Jo-
posllcd in tne bink and vet admits that the
bank recogni/od the state tieasuier's checks
to the extent of $ .10,000 , does he ptoposo to
consider the latter amout.t as an ovetdiaft
and attempt to collect it from the state
Ueasuier ?
This is the question asked by ono of the
Intel | estod parties , but It cannot be answered
until J the legal opinion of Kc-cclvcr H.i > den's
attorneys is given to the public.
Will Wiilt for VVrlltdii Nollcr.
State Treasurer Hartley s lid this evening
that It was clearly evident that the claims
of the stiito would bo ignored , nml that it
was perfectly safe to assume that the st.alo
would got n share of the receiver's dividends
only after u law suit. He could not say
what he should do in regard to thu matter
until ho had toeoived the written notice
fiom the receiver and could ascertain the
legal ground upon which the icceivor's de
cision was based.
, Iiiil'eViikoley ISxphkiiift tlio Stttun of tlio
When Judge Wnkeley , who Is counsel for
the state In the case against ovTieasuiet
Hill and hU bondsmen , was asked last evenIng -
Ing about the effect of the latest action nf f
the receiver on the case now pending in
coutt he said , ho had received no ptoviotis
Intimation of what the locoiver had done ,
but ho could not see how it would hutu any
effect on the case in any manner whatever ,
"It must bo understood , " ho Haul , "that
the state us a state , does not look to the
bank for that ti l,000 The state's 10o
sltion is that ox-Truasutcr Hill to-
cuivod the money nnd failed to cither
turn It over to his successor or to
pay It out Iu the way of proper disburse
ments lo settle the indebtedness of the
state. That is why the state has never
made a demand upon the bank for the money !
after the manner of regular depositor S.
rreasiuut-Uarlloy wanled this demand made ,
but I advised verj distinctly against it , ami
Governor Crounso and Attorney al
Hastings declined to make it. The to
has supposed and alleged that the money
was deposited as claimed , but it makes no
difTcienco to our case whether it was or not.
This assertion on the part of the lecelyor ,
that the money never was deposited , Is
something that I had not heard before. If
Captain Hill did not deposit it. that is his
lookout and not thu concern of the stato. If
lie did not dejwsit It he Is certainly liable
for the money , and if ho did deposit
it , ho unlawfully converted it to his own use
by so doing , and therefore embezzled it and
violated Ills bond , This has nil along been
the contention uf the auto , and this now
statement will uot change the situation
nt all.
Will Proceed Moulll ) .
Treasurer Bartloy has locc-ntly made a de
mand for iho money , und I suppose that la
w lint called forth the declaration on the
part of the receiver I hatonoldea whether
the money was deposited or ngt , but It la
curtain that there were certificates of de-posit
show ing that the money had been received
by the bank. There were a number of Irregularities
regularities practiced in connection with irhe
bank's paper , but I believe this Is the nisi
time that It has been alleged that the ex-
treasurer's certificates weiu bogus , JX10
claim heretofore hating been lhat Iho money
was actually deposited , but thut the bank's
books wore doctored so as to defraud the
bank and docolvo tbo directors and bink ox-
umlner. So far as this phako Is concerned IXny 1
can only say thai It will not causa any
chuiiKe of pluns or have any beating on iho
ca e. We have bocn ruled out of court
here on the giound of want of juris
diction , but thu case will bo doclcutod in . Is.he
