Mr. Herr remarking In a pointed manne
tbat Mr. Harvey "read an essay here yes
terday upon the condition of the world durlnf
the Fifteenth century and particularly up ti
the discovery of America In 1492. He reat
the statement without its having been calle <
out at all by me , as I had not attacked tha
part of his book. But he made such ai
elaborate effort to show the condition o
things .In the world from 1400 to 1510 that
have taken a little rains to find out , If I could
whether there Is any truth In the representa
tlons that he makes and I find that hlstor ;
leaves him In a bad condition In that regard
as It does In regard to the bulk of the state

Continuing , Mr Herr endeavoied to sbov
that the lot of the millions In Europe wai
rising b fore 1402 , and that of tha feuda
aristocracy , with Its tyranny was crumbllni
to a fall He said"Mr. . Harvey and hi
free silver friends Identify prosperity am
the progress of man with the lot ot th
feudal nobility of Europe and not with tha
of the tollers. Later I shall show that In hi
treatment of the present , as of the past , Mr
Harvey stands , as the exponent of the rlcl

be considered by the legislation of the state '
In reply Mr. Harvey said that In bis re
marks yesterday , to which Mr. Herr was nov
objecting , he volunteered to explain the preface
face of the "school" without waiting for It t
be attacked. Mr. Harvey iiiEluted that th
allegations ot fact which he made in his book
and yesterday , had been taken from th
official report of the United States monetar ;
commission ot 1S76. He showed this , note
to enter Into an argument on the politics
economy of the Fifteenth century , but to BIO\
that those who had accused him of forger ;
were wrong. He said , furthermore , tha
Mr. Herr should not get him at any point o
the debate to divert his mind from th
regular argument and local arrangement c
Mr. Herr then went back to jesterday'
discussion of * what constitutes the unit c
value. Therefore , Mr. Harvey took up th

Questions were then In order. H. L nils
questioned Mr. Ilnivey as to figures In hi

erroneously state the amount at $37,000,00
less than the amount of blhcr actually colne
before 1873 However , It had been In th
Interest of his argument to state the amoun
at all therefore It would stand.
O B Gunn of Kansas City caused Mi
Harvey to explain at length the amount an
denomination of the sliver coinage prevlou
to 1873. Questions by a score of other

"Of course there will bo more than 100

Asked what would hippen If the Indian
police showed fight , Mr Peebles said : "Some
one will be hurt. The sheriff proposes to
irrcst every Indian who attempts to vlolato-
the court's order. When an Indian Is ar
rested he will bs put In charge of a guard
and held until a squid has' been gathered to

marched down to PondT and locked In Jail.
After wo have cleared the reservation or
these policemen we will march to the agency ,

We will Invite Mr Heck to come down off

violating the order of the court. "
Asked If tha United States army might not
take a hand , Mr. Peebles said that he thought
"The Interior department might Issua
Borne kind of an order , " he said , "but tho-
War department will keep Its hands oft. "
Concerning the time for the warlike demon
stration to begin , Mr. Peebles said : "The-
time lx not far distant. The people are ripe-
for the fray and they do not propose to put up.
with the outrages which have ben perpe
trated upon them for months. We are united
this time , and we will stand together as one
man until equal Justice is meted out to the
wronged residents of Thurston county. All
that we ask Is Justice and that the laws of
