Mr Gardner, of Pike, a former repre

il! there be another bond issue, oi
an extra session of CongrrcKs? Those
IMCKtionu are bein;? discussed, not with-
standing Secretary Cat linle's statement
that there is nothing alarming about
the government's liuauoe.s. It i
known that the bond syndicate wants
another issue of bonds, whk-h under
their contract would have to be sold
to them at the old price, if issued pre
vious to October 13, next, and that it
expects to get it. Prominent Domo
Tats have protested ftgaiti.st another
issue of bonds, advifinu instead thf
cnlling of n extra session of Con-res.,
if itic Treasury nmts ltscit mi aide to
got aloug until the regular session.
Uut there is no certainty that Comrrofis.
which will be strongly anti-administra
tion, would provide the monevin time.
even if au extra session were called.
It is predicted that unless there should
e sn unexpectedly Jiirfre increase in
the revenues of the government within
the next three mouths the gold reserve
will hive to be encroached upon to
mret ordinary obligations. Meanwhile
there is always danger tint the gold
speculators may draw the gob! out.
According to the latest story current
n Washington, President Cleveland is
about to spring a surprise on thoso
Democratic Senators and Iieprescida-
ivos who still refuse to abandon their
advocacy of the free coinage of silver,
anil to endorse the '"sound monev"
obey laid down by President Cleve
md and Secretary Cailisle. This
surprise is to be the renunal of every
J'eoeial oihce holder appointed on the
recommendation of a silver Senator
or Representative, ns fast as men re
commended bv "sound monev" Demo-
rats can be agreed upon to take their
daces. That would bo an Andrew
Jackson eort of policy mire enough,
ut, in view of President Cleveland's
civil service reform professions, it is
dillicult to believe that he really con-
emplatcs putting such a policy into
effect, although prominent members of
Li patty believe it and endorse it, too.
hould such a programme really be
earned out it would mean a change in
more than half of the Federal olliccrs
n the South, unless the men who now
bold them should placate the ndminis
t;aion by declaring for "sound
monev." JSneh a policy would make
certain President Cleveland's control
of tle next Democratic National con
vention, but it would all the same be a
verv serious mistake both for him and
his party. It would not be the first
time, ami nor the second, that an nd
mi nistiation has tried to muzzle the
opponents of its policy. Rut in no
case in which this muzzling process
has been re-tored to, his the adminis
tration which trted it or the party it
represented been the gainer thereby.
It is obnoMo s to the American sense
of lair pNv. Argue with n man and
convince L:m, if you can, but don't
shut his mouth by thteats or by force.
I believe that this stoiy has been put
afloat more ? a bluff than with any
periods intention to really carry it

ith the ringing of the l,50O pound
bell the crowds surged in and before
the convention was rapped to order at
9:15 nearly every seat in the tent was
occupied. The devotional exercises
were conducted by Iiev. L. O. Dawson,
of Tuscaloosa, Ala. The report of the
committee on important topics in the
annual report was preseuted by W. T.
Hellines, D. I)., of Umaha, .eu. It
stated that "the union may justly con
gratulate itself on the rapid and relia
ble growth in all that makes for the
unification, cultivation and wise direc
tion in service of our great constitu
ency. The past has been marked by
gratifying improvements in all depart
ments of our great organization."
The report o fihe committee on im
portant topics contains this paragraph:
' The larire number of societies that
have accepted the Laptist Young Peo
ples' Union form of organization indi
cates the appreciation of our constitu
tion as a working method for our Iiap
tist young people. And we hail with
pleasure the growine s?ntiment that
the Riptist Young Peoples' Cni'n is
broad enough and ilaptiatic enough to
hold in itself and J,o itself the Laptist
young people in Ameiica. the Provinces
of Canaaa ann we trust, In the near
future, the Ilaptistic young people or
the world. What is good enough for
our own beloved America is good
enough for every land."
The programme wa9 changed so that
the salutation of State flagscand minute
reports of State and provincial unions
preceded the historic address of Mr.
Carroll, of Texas. With a single hymn
of divine worship intonded by thous
ands of voices, the young ladies bear
ing the banners and the chosen speak
ers from the State unions marched
through the aisles and on to the speak
ers platform, where front row seats
had been provided for them. The flags
had been arranged across the platform,
producing a very handsome multi-colored
effect. As the name of each of the
3'J Slates and provincial unions was
called a j-oung lady would hoist a ban
ner high above the others and the
chosen male representative would step
forward and briefly review the work in
his territory for the past year. The
State of Wisconsin was called first and
a eentleman from Milwaukee responded.
He was s imbued with the desire to se
cure next year's convention that he for
rot his text and ;a!ked of nothing but
the attractions of li is city. When he
concluded the Wisconsin delegation
scored a hit by singing a song to the
tune of "Maryland, lay Maryland,
which was an invitation to Milwaukee.
One of the most striking features was
when Northern California was called.
The response came in boyish treble
from Mr. Georee M. Purnell, of Sacrl
mento. He did not look to be over
fifteen years of age. He wore glasses
and his voice was shrill and penetrat
ing, lie said: T come ZSO) miles to
greet you in the name of 2,100 young
people of Northern California. Eureka
is our motto." lie continued to sj-eak
the full minute and over. At the con
clusion of his speech there were great
demonstrations and the performance
was considered so remarkable thait
delegates called for its repetition on tbe
speaker's stand. The youthful orator
was escorted to the stand, "where a chair f
was set out, on which he mounted, lie
reflated his speech and at the conclu
sion led the Colorado delegates iu the
yell about Denver being one mile near
er heaven than Ilrooklyn. The ap
plause was tremendous and haudker
chiefs waved all over the tent.
The climax of patriotism was reached
when the District of Columbia was
calltd. The.banncrof the delegation, a
silk Hag, of the Stars and Stripes, wns
waved by Miss Cory, while Kev. Mr.
Thomas, of Georgetown, delivered a pa
triotic address. Then the audience
arose and sang "The Star Spangled
At the evening session there was a
tremendous crowd under the giant can
vas, and thousands were turnu away.
The Convention declared asrainst

Till'. SILVER COMMIT! KK.
A I?esoIutlon Adopted Ifocoiiiiiiondiii;;
the Adoption of 15i-3Ietallc Leagues.
The national silver committee of
one from each State and Territory,
appointed at the Memphis silver con
vention, finished ito work on Friday
at Chicago. Judge Henry Cf. Miller,
of Chicago, who acted as one of
the judges of the Iforr-Harvey debate,
was selected as permanent chairman,
and J. H. Acklen, permanent secretary.
The following executive committee was
named: A. J. Warner, of Ohio; A. Wal
cott, of Indian:; N. C. HIanchard, of
Louisiana: Geo. K. IJowen, Chicago,
and Judge A. J. Kucker, of Colorado.
Three bureaus for the dissemination of
silver literature and the promulgation
of the lb' to 1 platform will be estab
lished by the committee one in Chi
cago, one in Nashville, and the third in
San Francisco. The following resolu
tions were adopted:
"Whether the single gold standard
with increasing debt and consequent
servitude for the masses of the people
shall be made perpetual in this country
or whether the constitutional standard
of gold and silver, with better prices for
the products of labor and safer condi
tions for business shall be restored,
must be decided by the people at the
election in 1S&G.
"The issue is between the gold stand
ard, gold bonds and a contracting cur
rency on the one side and a bi-metallic
standard, no bonds and a sufficient
currency on the other.
"Believing that tbe time has come
when those who hold this issue to be
paramount in importance to all other
questions should unite their efforts to
secure the establishment of these prln
ciples, the executive committe, appoint
ed at the Memphis silver convention
June 12 and 13, 1S93, earnestly recom
mends: First, The organization of bi-metallic
leagues throughout the entire coun
tiy, which all those believe in the
restoration of the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at the existing ratio
of 10 to 1 independently of tbe action
of any other nation shall be invited to'
"Second, That a committee of five be
appointed to take cfcarge of this move
ment, to provide and distribute litera
ture, to place organizers and speaker in
lLe f eld, and otherwise to advance the
cause of bi-metal!ism as in their judg
ment they shall think best.
"Third, Each member of the national
committee is authorized to select a
chairman for each county of his State,
and the chairman so selected may ap-l-o:
it t in each district of his county aad
in cich ward of an incorporated town
and city, three members to constitute a
cony committee, which committee
tdiaM organize bimetallic leagues,
Wh-re counties or States have already
acied. er.d organizatiots have been
formed, said orgacizatiens shall be re
organized. The chairmen of the re
Eective county committees shall con
stitute a Sute committee."
