H. A. LONDON. Editor.
The FbesideSt'n iiiCMHtge, has, of
bourse, been much discussed und
criticised. By somo it is pronounced
n of the clearest and ablest docu
ments ever penned by any I'icm
dont, while others stigmatize it as
irrelevuutand illogical. Indeed Mr.
Cleveland is now receiving nioro
criticism and censure than has ever
before fallon to his lot, and among
those who are now severest in tboir
eon an re aro many who voted tor
Mm. Yen, there are many demo
crats now denouncing him an
"gold bug" and saying all sorts ol
harsh things about him, just like
thore wero some democrats, three
weeks ago, who denounced Senutor
Vance and accused him of eonsm ting
with "Mary Ann" Butler and the
third party. We think that both
are unjustly accused --and we think
ilia', those democrat. who have de
lionneed cither of then) will, alter
awhile, regret their outburst ol
passion. Wo still have the utmost
yonfi ieiice both in the honesty and
patriotism of both Cleveland and
Vance, and the lii:i-olti does not
purpose undertaking to lvad either
one of them out of the democratic
Ot' course we regret that l'rcsi
dont Cleveland did not see tit to
suggest in his niessago what "'other
legislation" Le deemed proper or
necessary, in addition to the repeal
of tho Sherman law. And we can
not agree with him in thinking that
tbo present financial panic is "prin
cipally chargeable" to that law. But
because of this we cannot and wib
not denounce him. As tor I. is '-being
bought by Wall street", that is
all bosh, for among all the public
men in this country there is not one
purer or moio patriotic than (Irovcr
Clovcland-the greatest living A n.cr
ic u) !
The truth of the mailer is there
is too much intolerance in the dit
cussioa ot the financial ipiestiui;.
Jso man knows it all (except tin
uverugo third parly thiaiiciei ) ami
every man oubt to be willing t'.
accord to those who dill'er with him
tbo samo honesty of purpose that he
claims for himself. Thcic is min i,
to be said on Lot!) side.-, and yet it
scents that the more the question is
discussed the more muddled it be
comes. Wo are pleased to note that Mr
Cleveland has nut abuteil in his earn
est zeal lor tariff reform, but clearly
states in his message that "tariff re
form has lost nothing ot its iininedi
itto and permanent importance''.
Tue Statk Allianco held its an
nual ruocling last week at (iteens
boro', and, as was cxpecled, il was a
regular third party meeting, pure
and simple. Tho proceedings beiiij;
behind closed doors and iu secret
are not divulged to the public, ex
cept that the names ot the new olli-i-crs

A glance at these names ought. U
roraovo all doubts from tho mind ol
anyone, who has heretofore doubted
tho fact that the Alliance in this
State bad been completely caplurco
by tho third party. Il will be notcn
as a very significant tact thai lion.
3. B. Alexander, who foi so long a
time was tho idol of the Alliance in
this State, has been completed
"turned down" and his position ot
chairman of the executive commi'.tei
has been given to Butler.
De.mocuats should clearly under
stand the platform of their party or
tho financial question, and in order
to construo and interpret that plat

clauses should be considered togeth
er, and not disjointed, 'lherelorc
wo invito our readers to read cares
fully that platform and calmly con
sider every clause. Although the
I.ecord has repeatedly published it.
yet wo publish it again, as follows:

Upon a close scrutiny of Ihe above,
several points will be noted, as loU
1. It will first be noted that the
Sherman act is denounced and ils
"speedy repeal" demanded.
2. Jt will he noted in the socond
place that both gold ami silver are
declared to be the "standard money
of the countrx" and the Iree coinage
ol both is demanded.
o. But il will be noted in the third
phuc lli-:t -'the dollar unit ot coin-,

Al present '-the dollar unit

equal and exchangeable valu.'. That
is, the intrin.-ic value ol a silver
dollar is not equal to the intrinsic
value of a gold dollar. In view of
this tact shall Congress continue 1"
coin such silver dollars? Or shall
it chango the ratio between gold
and silver and adopt "such safe

democratic platform declares in favor
of the hitler, and insists upon this
policy "as especially necessary for
tho protection of the farmer and

It weuld seem then from the above
that Congress must in some manner
secure the equal value ol gold and
-ilver dollars, or it mu-t be adjunct
through ii.tcn.ational agreement,
ivhicli latter is not probable.
CoNollKss very promptly went to
work on the perplexing financial
qiiistioii. Instead of waiting two
.r three weeks until the committees
are a. pointed, an agreement ws at
once entered into by whieli the
lin.-incial question is now being thor
oughly discussed and a vote will be
taken on the L'Mh of this month in
tiio House. The bill under discus
sion was introduced by Representa
tive Wilson, of est Virginia, and
provides for the repeal ot the Slier
man act, and for the free coinage of
silver at such a ratio as may be
agreed on, which it is now thought
will be 2-t to 1. We are pleased to
note that both in the Senate and in
the House there is manifested a de
sire to reconcile lonllictiug opinion,
and we have an abiding laitli in the
wisdom and patriotism ol the Hop

The I'n'siuYnt'.s Message
Cai'itoi., Washington, August S.
Tho following is the President's
message as read in both Houses ot
Congress today ;
To THE CoNJUKSS OF THE UNITED
The existeneo of an alarmingfatid
extraordinary business situation, in
volving the welfare and prosperity
of all our people, lias constrained me
to call together in extra session the
j people's representatives in Congress,
to tho end that through u wise and
patriotic exercise, of the legislative
duty with which they solely are
charged at present, events may he
mitigated and the danger threaten
ing the future may be averted. Our
unlorlunalo financial plight is not
tho result ot untoward events nor
ot conditions related to our natural
resources, nor is it traceable to any
ol the afflictions which frequently
check national growth and prosper
ity. Witn plenteous crops, witli
abundant promise ot remunerative
production and man ulactuie, with
unusual invitation losaio in csm.ci. ;

surprised to find taut the securities

fore satisfactory, are no longer ac

and loss and lailu'-e have invaded
every branch of business.
1 hdieve these things are priuci
pally chargeable to congressional
legislation touching the purchase
and coinage ol silver by the general
government. This legislation is em
bodied in a statute passed on the
lUh d-iy ol July, 1?IH, which was
the culmination ol much agitation
on tbesuljeit involved, and which
mav be considered u truco after a
long struggle, between the advocate,
of free silver coinage and those in
tending to be more conservative.
I'ndoubtedly ihe monthly pur
chases by the government ol lour
millions and live hundred thousand
ounces ot silver, enforced under that
statute, were regarded by those in
terested in silver production as a
certain guaranty ot its increase in
price. The result, however, has
been entirely different, lor immedi
ately lollow-ing a spasmodic and
slight rise tho price of silver began
to fall after the pas-a.ee of the act
and has since reached the lowest
point ever known.
This disappointing re-Mill has led
to renewed and persistent effort in
tue direction i f tree silver coinage.
Meanwhile not only the evil effects
i! the opei alion ol the present law
con .'.ant ly accumulate, but the result
to whieli its execution must inevit
ably had is b .coining palpable to
all who give the least heed to finan
cial subjects. This law provides
that in payment tor the lour million
and five hundred thousand ounces
ul silver bullion which Ihe Secretary
is commanded to purchase monthly,
there shall be issued Treasury note.-'
redeemable on demand in gold or
silver coin at the discretion ol the
Secretary of the Treasury and that
said notes may be reissued. 1 1 is.
however, declared iu the act to in
-the established policy i t the I'nltco
Stales to maintain the two metals
hi a parity with each other upon
tiio present legal ratio or sm h rati'
as may bo provided by law." Thi
declaiati ui so controls the action ol
the Secretary of the Treasury as to
prevent his eieleising the discretion
nominally Vested in him, it, by such
action, the parity between gold ami
silver may bo disturbed. Maniiestly
a refusal by the Secretary to pay
these Treasury notes iu gold it de
manded, would neecss.irily result in
the'r discredit and depreciation a
obligatioiM payable only in silver,
and' would destroy the parity be
tween tne two metals by establish
ing a discrimination in lavor id gold.
Up to the l.'ith day ot J tl y. l -l'o.

quantity of this bullion remains uu.
coined and w ithout useiulncss in the
Treasury, many i tiio notes given
iu its puri ha.-e have been paid in
gold. This is illustrated by the
statement that between the 1st day
ot May, and the loth day ol
July, lV.KS, the notes ot ibis kind
issued in payment lor silver bullion
amounted to a little more than liny
four millions ot dollars, and that
during the same period about lorty
two millions ot dollars were paid by
Ihe Treasury in gold lor the leden.p
liou of such notes. The policy nec
essarily adopted ot paying lbe.-c
notes in gold lias not spared the gold
reserve ot ono hundred millions ol
dollars, long ago set aside by the
government lor redemption ot other
notes, lor this fund has already been
sul'ject to the payment ot new obli
gations amounting to about one bun
dred and fitly millions ot dollars uu
account ot silver purchases, and lots,
as a consequence, for thu first time
since its creation, been encroached
upou. We have thus made Iho de
pletion ol our gold easy and have
tempted other and more appreeiali V;
nations to add il to their slock.
That the opportunity liial we have
offered has not been neglected is
shown by the large amounts of gold
which have been recently drawn
from our Treasury and exported to
increase tho tinam-ial strength ol
, foreign nations. The excess of ex
I'Ot ts ot gold over its imports ,ir

and a halt inilboi.s dollars. Pe-

the 15th day ol July, lS'.W, the gold
coin and bullion in our Treasury
decreased more than one hundred
and thirty two millions of dollars,
during the same period the silver
coin and bullion in the Treasury in-
creased more than one hundred and
forty-seven millions of dollars.
Unless ovorument bonds are to
