liuil roimlatcntly dealt with the great finan

uns delivered on behalf of the republican

vhat ho said :

Mr Allison then recounted the discovery
of the crime of 1X7:1 : and the election of
t'lcvelnnd by a combination of western
Fllverlt' < and southern democrats , which
WHI followed by the forced curtailment of
prudin lion and Idle laborers , due to the
an liipiled abandonment of the policy of
jir.itri Hon. He proceeded :
T ic situation apparent early In UiKl was
Int.'M.sllli-d by u money panic which lin-
ini.llately followed. It wnt believed that
the imp ilrnient of o > ir Industries and our
oirnlng power would so diminish our
fi vi-nui'H as to ina'.ie It Impo.sxlhlc for us
to m.ittit iln our money standard with the
( ' . purchases of pllvcr under the
Hli'im.m law of 1SX ! ) . and that this part of
tin I iw could not be repealed because of the
'tuition ' In the Hpnalo , which bad , by re-
jie.ited votes , lately ehown a majority for
five --liver ; so It was said and believed that
iv e wi re going straightway to the dcnreela-
ted st ipilard of sllvi r by the operation of
the act of IbUO. Although this was not
probable lAlth the full execution of the re
sumption act of ISm , the president gave no
Hiyn or assurance that th ! would be done
until late In the year 1MX ) In times of
panic and distress reason falls to bear sway ,
and the money panic came , and Intensified
IllSK OF SIXTEEN TO ON'E.
Congresn was called In extra session.
After a long debate the purchasing clause
was repealed , and the monetary distress !
was alleviated for the time , but teceived a
ft cull blow very soon when It 1mauie ap
parent that the leaders , or most of tbeni.
of fie democratic party In the senate anil
house , seeing the failureof their Industrial
pulley , determined to bieak away from
. 'levelatid and the eastern democracy on
the. money question and to afllllatc with the
modern populism upon the common cry of
free anil unlimited coinage of silver without
tin' aid or consent of any other nation at
the ratio cf Ifi to 1.
He told the story of the election of 1 < W ,
The republican pirty had faith In the In
tegrity and IntelllHcnee of the American
people , and that when these Questions were
fully debatul they would be rightly settled ,
that the people would f > e that the platm
proposed at Chicago would only intensify
the distress , and not alleviate or remove It ,
but capital ami credit In the meantime stood
silent iwaiting the event.

hi metlmes callul the blunder nnd some-
tlmen the crime of HS73. These charges
were made , though the record plainly shows
that the subject of dropping the silver dollar

COUNT11Y HAS CONFIDRNCR.
Silver nnd silver certlllcntPH form n great
part of our paper circulation ; the neces
sities uf traile and huslnes * , and public and
private credit alike require thai they shall
be maintained at par with gold. The gov
ernment must do-this to maintain it * own
honor and Integrity. It has guaranteed this
Indirectly by putting Into the treasury more
than $100,00 > ) .0j' ( ) , clear prollt on the coinage ,
and It has at least throe times made this
Kiiarntity by positive statute law. It' there
fore Is bound to provide not only the
uacMtipry , but the means to accomplish
his purpose. It would be had faith by
llrect statute or by Indirect jugglery to
violate that promise so sacredly made .and
so oftpu repented. The greenback , In fact
low , forms a connecting link whereby this
promise can be redeemed , and should not bo
disturbed as long as this promise exists.
So a reserve Is necessary for the jnirpow ,
and tbpre Is ample statutory power to
irovlde It , nnd President McKlnley will sco
that It Is done In the future an It has been
lone In the p.ist. Therefore , though
losltlve legislation Is Impracticable now , erin
in the near future , there Is ample power to
maintain this positive promisee , that all our
currency shall remain at a parity. The
country kna.vs 'bis and believes It.
With credit restored through the election
of William McKlnley and faith In him nnd
ils pnrty money Is coming from Its retreats

election of General Tracy , since his election
will bo a victory for grod government and
sound money , both of Importance beyond

iIJALTIMOHIJ. Oct. 1C. Tlio Sun toilny pub-
lUhes a lengthy editorial In reply to Senator
Gorman's letter , which In part Is as follows :
"No person of ordinary Intelligence can
read the letter from Senator Gorman to the
Sun , which Is published In our advertising
columns today , without at once perceiving
that It Is a mere campaign trick eminently
characteristic In Its palpable Insincerity and
the source from which It proceeds. If Mr.
Gorman really wishes to retire from the con
ical , the way for him to do so Is to retire ,
not to simply pinto aboul his willingness to
sacrifice his personal ambition for the good
of the party under certain Impossible and
preposterous conditions. It IB not necessary
for him to coma to the Sun to ask permission
to do so. If ho wanted to step down and outer
or had any real Intention of doing so ho could
have effected that purpose with far smaller
oxpcndlturo of cash and words. But that Is
the very last thing which ho has any Inten
tion of doing. Hln solo object Is to assume
a heroic attitude In the hope of deluding the
public that he la a great patriot who Is will
ing to 'sacrifice' himself for his party , If the
cruel and pcrlldlous Sun will let him net.
What a splendid nnd noble figure our senior
senator presents as ho strikes thin dramatic
attitude and calls frantically on the Sun to
permit him to retire. Unfortunately , the
role of disinterested patriotism is an un
familiar one. Thcro is something familiar
In the tones of the actor In spite of this
tragic strut and mclodramlc Htyle. The cos
tume may bo the costume of honest Esau ,
but the voice has the dulcet and oily notes
of Jacob. For , at the conclusion of lite long
defense of bin public record and moves , he
reveals the well known features of the great
compromiser. He proposes a bargain. There
was no necessity after this of any signature
or other Identification of the writer. "
NO HALF WAY MEHT1NG.
After referring to Sir. Gorman's offer to
meet the Sun half way In the effort to se
cure democratic success In Maryland , the
editorial continues : "Meet him half way ?
The Sun does not do things In such halves.
There Is no half way house between an
honest currency and a spurious one , between
an honest ballot and a fraudulent one , be
tween an honest tariff nnd one manipulated
In the Interest of trusts and monopolies. It
lo not necessary to discuss at length Mr.
Gorman's defense of his public career. He
says he Is opposed to civil service reform ,
that ho Is opposed to the Australian ballot
law , and thai ho mutilated the Wilson tariff
"His quotation from President Cleveland
in justification of his attitude on the Wilson
bill will not deceive even the most Ignorant
or forgetful. The quotation refuses to be
twisted Into a defense of Mr. Gorman ani
shows on Its face that Mr. Cleveland was far
from satisfied with the Wilson bill as it
passed the senate. What Mr. Cleveland really
thought of the defect In the measure and of
the men In the senate who were responsible
for those defects ho Indicated more than once
in emphatic language , which the country has
never forgotten. 'Mr. ' Gorman , quoting Mr.
Cleveland In his own vindication , suggests
the thought of a certain adroit politician of
the lower regions who Is said to
quote scriptureon occasions when
It suits Ms purpose. For his part
In the Sherman aiit repeal , that is n
matter of history. Will Mr. Gorman deny
that ho played the odious part uttnbuted to
him ? Hut it will n t avail hlmi at this late
day. It would be better for Mm not to
awaken the public record on that subject.
MACHINE ! REMAINS.
"In conclusion the Sun will plainly say
to Mr. Gorman that even It he retired from
the contest the dlfilculty of restoring har
mony would still exist , because not only
would his machine remain , but because his
machine Is pledged to a financial policy an' !
consequently 'to a senatorial nominee of his
own color and character. Objcctlnii.iblo as
are Mr. Gorman's political methods and Influ
ence , they are not the only things to which
the reflecting voters of Maryland object. His
principles , or want of principles , on the
financial question arc vital Issues and the
people of Maryland know that no matter
how much ho might retire , ho would paiult
no man to go to the United States eonato
who was not his ifalthful disciple und fol
"Mr. Gorman's offer to retire Iras a stringer
or rather a cable applied to It. It Is a piece
of cheap bluff , which will affect no votes
und which only shows Mr. Gorman's realiza
tion of the desperation of his fortune. No ,
no , Mr. Gorman , the lly will not walk into
your parlor. You must run your own cam

CHICAGO , Oct. 'IG.-T-The closing day of
the elRhth week of the Luetgert trial opened
this morning with the atmosphere less op- !
presslvo than It was yesterday. The court
room was crowded to the doors as usual and
Imndreils were turned away. Judge Tuthill
took a party of twenty , principally women ,
Into court with him this morning. These
visitors had been waiting in one of the corridors
riders of the criminal court building forever
over an hour for the appearance of his honor
and they formed In line ami trooped In after
the judge In military style and secured the
best seats , much to the disgust of the ICCR
favored who stood In line before the court
room door , while another crowd lined up on
the pavement In front of the Michigan street
entrance to the building. Luetgert was un
usually Jolly this morning. The argument
of his counsel pleases him.
Kx-Judgo Vincent resumed his argument
this morning and at once began to ridicule
the bonn experts.
Ex-Judge Vincent continued to "roast" the
experts for the prosecution while he lauded
the experts for the defense. Ho talked about
the soap making In the factory , and posi
tively declared that there was nothing
strange about It and that the reason for
making the soap had been fully explained.
State's Attorney Dcneen will make his clos
ing speech on Monday. Kx-Judgo Vincent
made an unexpectedly lengthy address and
the famous case will probably not reach the
Jury before Tuesday afternoon. Hotting Is

has not been shown sufficiently to warrant
conviction are said to bo offering bets of fie

Judge Vincent closed hLs address with
these words : "Gentlemen , this prisoner has
lost his fortune , his liberty and his wife.
Will you now take away his life ? "
There" are others but none "Just as good"

li we should advertise Great Sale of a "Wholesale Wall Paper
Stock amounting to $100,000 , hundreds of men and scores of
teams busy hauling , working and arranging this immense pur
chase , and the entire stock will go on sale Monday morning at it
less than the wholesale prices , " and make this statement with
reference to an old stock of job lots which had been appraised
at , say $4.000 , and for which , owing to the fact that our largest-
competitor had , in slang parlance "put up a job"on us and
we had been led to pay double what the stock was worth , why
then our "ad" would be a big $100,000 falsehood and we would
justly forfeit every dollar's worth of a business , which has re
quired thirty years to build up.
So we will keep to the truth and simply state that we buy nothing- but stylish ,
seasonable goods , that our prices are very low , and "as the proof of the pudding-
in the eating , " here they are. with a discount of 30 to 50 per cent
