VOL. VII., NO. 23. TOPEKA, KANSAS, JUNE 5,1895. $1.00 A YEAR. FROM MANY STATES COME DECLARATIONS IN FAVOB OF IEEE COINAGE. What Nonsense to Talk About the Co operation of Other Nations iJnited States Can Stand Alone. Na w York, J une 3. The World prints the result of a telegraphic poll of the next congress upon the silver, tariff and income questions. The following ques tions were asked of each: "Do yon favor single gold standard or free coinage?" "Do you favor further tariff changes?" "Do you favor the principle of the income-tax?" In a general way it may be said that out of 116 members who gave unequiv ocal answers to the silver question, 55 are unqualifiedly in favor of free coin age, 44 favor bimetallism generally, with the proviso of an international agree ment. Only 17 can fairly be classed as favoring a single gold standard, and some of these, even, are not definite. The southern and far western states are almost unanimous for free coinage, the central states lean toward silv...

JUNE 5 This story began in No. 15. Subscribers can get baolc cumbers. Sydney Stone, Anti-Federa Copyright 1895. By G. C. CLEMENS, (Author of "The Demi Line.") HOOK II. CHAPTER I. 'DADDY HKItMIT.' My eyes are filled with childish tears, My heart la idly stirred, For the same sound is In my ears That In those days I heard. Wordsworth. Let Fate do her worst; there are relics of Joy, Bright dreams of tho past, which she cannot destroy; And which come In the night-time of sorrow and care To bring back the features that joy used to wear. Moor. Feeling the need of cultivating the acquaintance of someone she could "trust as a father," according to Sydney's parting suggestion, and yearning for news of her exiled lover who had been gone nearly two weeks, Gertrude determined to visit the Hermit age, and to that end had old James get out the sleigh and drive her into the country, Knowing that she could implicitly trust the old ex-slave, when they neared the point where, according to Job's instr...

Stilwell was delighted, and much conversation en sued, but the listening girl up stairs could hear no more. "Sydney Stone in love with another?" Gertrude was also jealous. "But," she retlected, "they are hunting him to cage him like some wild beast; a trusted follower's son to betray him. Why, it is Judas and his Master over again! I must save him. But save him for another? Oh, why does heaven permit us to love only to make us wretched? Fer haps, after all, he does not love her. He may only visit his old followers as a friend.

1895. I POSTAL SAVINGS BANKS. IIow They Are Conducted In the Dominion of Canada. The New York Voice of May 2, had the fol lowing corresponcence which is of interest at any time because of the practical information it contains upon a very important question of public policy, Editor. Toronto, Canada, April 26. (Spe cial correspondence to the Voice.) In Canada there is no division of opinion on the value to the community of a postal savings bank system which af fords all classes an opportunity to make profitable, convenient, and per fectly safe investment of their savings. The system is at once popular, ex peditious, national and economical. By it every Canadian from babyhood to old age has a banker ready at hand to receive as a deposit his dollars, from 81 to $1,000 in a year not less than 01 or more than the larger amount from one depositor in twelve months, "While the minimum deposit is 100 cents, the maximum deposit from one person is 03,000, exclusive of interest.

10 JCNE NAPOLEON'S FINANCIAL EECOSD. A Sketch of the Financial System of Napo laoa Bonaparte, the Chosen Champion of 'flonesta) Money." BY JOHN DATI3. (Continued from last voeei.) I have said that want of money was one principal reason for the invasion of Russia by Napoleon. All the coun tries subject to the French empire were y exhausted of their specie, and the em peror spurned the use of paper. There must be found, then, new pastures for military forage and exactions, and new treasuries to be robbed. There were, at that time, but two countries in Europe worth robbing England and Russia. The former was safe in her citadel amid the waves. Russia was open for invasion; and be yond Russia to the east and south lay all Asia with great wealth and numer ous treasuries of specie. The men and money of Russia were to enable the "honest-money" conquerer to proceed with hia long-cherished hopes of con quering Asia. That enterprise had been cut short years before by his fail ure at the seige ...

In February, 1707, when the vast abstrac tion of specie from the British islands owing to the campaigns the preceding year in Italy and Germany, joined to an extraordinary run upon the banks arising from a panic at home, had brought matters to extremities, the Bank of England was on the verge of bankruptcy, and the nation within a hair breadth of ruin. But Mr. Pitt was at the helm, and his firmness and foresight not only surmounted the crisis, but drew from it the means of establishing the cur rency of the country on such a footing as enabled it to bid defiance through out the whole remainder of the war alike to foreign disaster and internal embarassment.

There must have been some treasonable conspiracy hatching there against the people?" "That depends upon whom you call 'the people.' As to the gentlemen, and the mercantile and pro fessional classes, the purpose of the convention was of the strictest rectitude. But if by the people you mean the ignorant masses who prate of equality and actually presume te demand it, there was a con spiracy against them. To tell th8 truth, when our Btate Constitutions were framed we were so depend ent upon the vulgar herd to do the fighting for us that we dared not oppose them too much; and they had become so saturated with the teachings of that fanatical Tom I'aine's absurd pamphlet which he outraged reason by entitling "Common Sense," and they had become so imbued with the notions picked cp from Jefferson's loose and dangerous talk, that our state Constitutions leave all property a...

JUNE 12 Li3 story began in No. 15. Subscribers can got back numbers. Sydney Stone, Mi-Federal. Copyright 1895, By G. C. CLEMEIID, (lothor of "The Dead Line.") BOOK II. CHAPTER IV. - "IF HE DIDN'T, WnO DID?" Gertrude's exclamation and shrieks only annoyed Isaac Stilwell, who had not the slightest suspicion of thair real meanfng. She and the murdered, man's daughter, Eloise, a year or two her elder, had been as devoted a3 sisters since their childhood, and they visited each other almost daily. She very much liked Mrs. Hotchkiss, and the dead man himself, for outside his professional affairs, the old lawyer had been a very kindly, even a lovable, man. So Isaac Stilwell assumed without hesitation that the exclamation, "It is false!" had reference to the announcement that Hotchkiss had been murdered, and resulted from horror at the thought that it could be true. His pride would have prevented him from suspecting that any member of fci3 household could "stoop to notice such a scoun drel,"...

"Excuse me, please. I am too well bred to tell at your bidding what I have just declined to tell to a man." This caused a titter. "Impertinent vagabond 1" exclaimed the batting Dobbins. Sydney raised his hands suddenly, saying: "What if these hand-cuffs should come off?" And it looked as if they might. Dobbins retreated behind the men in his rear. This caused laughter, even in the presence of the dead. The coroner cried out: "If anyone here knows aught that has not been told as to how, or at whose hands, the deceased Alexander Hotchkiss, lying here dead, came to his death, I charge him, in the name of the Common wealth of Massachusetts, to come forth and divulge the same." No one came forth. No one was expected to come forth. The coroner did not wait for anybody to come forth; but with this ...
