a tremendous public peril and a duty Mr. Cleveland ha3 been bmmilia
to no uiscnargcil with regard to it. tod
it seems to us that the action of
the so-called Democratic national
convention at Chicago imposes a
duty upon every business man in the
United States to actively exert him
self in defense of the threatened bus
iness interests. The finances of the
nation must not be thrown into dis
order. Our honor as a people who
have always paid their debts in full
in money that was worth its face
value in every market place in the
world, must not bo sacrificed. Our
vast foreign trade must not be disor
ganized and subjected to a long pe
riod of waste and loss, caused by a
11 actuating currency ehanges. Our
still vaster internal trade must not
be thrown into the abyss of inflation
that is always produced by the issu
ing of a debased currency and the
inevitable driving out of gold, where
by all values and prices are first
forced upwards to fictitious figures
which they cannot bo maintained,
with the result that when they drop,
as they must when the reaction
comes, disaster and rniu mark the
path of the recoil from the debauch
of inflation throughout the Union
All these things will come to pass if
the reserve forces of the conserva
tive business classes are not called
intoeffective action to prevent them.
There are, it ia true, gratifying
signs that the cause of sound money
is already in a fair way to be vindi
cated in the pending contest. Dem
ocrats who have stayed in their party
ranks all their lives are coming in
thousands to the direct support of
William McKinley, of Ohio. It is
now peen, with growing distinctness
that McKinley is no longer the mere
in the house oE his friends, or of
those who should bo his friends.
Them was no disposition among
the delegates who went to Chicago
for tho purpose of declaring Demo
cratic principles to condemn the
Cleveland administration in any for
mal or organized way. Ihe party
was willing to extend to Cleveland
tne cnarity ot its silence, it was
impossible for a Democratic conven
tion to approve Clevelandism, but it
was possible to repudiate him by the
eloquence t f silence. . This was the
conro determined upon. It was the
st'Utim: at of every man in tho ma
jority with but tew exceptions, it
was dictated by motives not only ct
party policy, but of public decency.
When the gold minority in the
platform committea placed in the
ni'nority report a resolution indors
ing Cleveland it invited that con
demnation of the President which
tho convention had been anxious to
avoid. It forced the party to spew
out tho bad taste in its mouth which
it had been willing to swallow for
the sake of decency. Mr. Hill's the
atricals made a bad matter neither
worse nor better.
It is impossible not to sympathize
witn JUr. Cleveland in hi3 humiha
turn- He ha3 been disgraced by
those he nas served. He has been
left naked by those whose livery he
has worn. The party which has
heaped honor and emolument upon
him has been forced, against its
will, to brand him as unworthy, false
to it and to the country.
