'J mi fx $ I" THE POPULIST EBROE. TEho foundation of the false reasoning on the money question $hat accounts for many supporters of the free silver plan is the claim that the stamp or mark of the government is what gives value to the gold and silver currency of a nation. What the government declares to be a dollar, is a dollar and has a dollar's value. What the government declares to be a yard measure, is a yard measure and what' tbe gov­ ernment declares to be a bushel, is a bushel. All those terms are need undesignating the quantity of some commodity. The "dollar" indicates about 23 grains of gold, and it is the gold that has the value, and the stamp of the gov­ ernment simply shows that it .weighs the number of grains that I? our laws term a "dollar." The stamp of the United States mint $ upon that piece of gold gives it no more value than would the stamp of the kiug of some cannibal I' island. If the 23 grains of sold is there, no nation is great enough to increase its value, an...

CHICAGO, Aug. 6.—It is estimated BY those in a position to know that Moore Bros, have lost between $4,000,000 and ^6,600,000 in the Diamond Match deal. Some say it has wiped out every cent of their fortunes. Nothing in years has caused such a flurry in commercial cir­ cles as the collapse of the Moores in their efforts to maintain the control of Diamond Match stock andj New York Biscuit. It has been the talk of every man connected with the Stock. Ex­ change and the board of trade. An­ other striking feature of the failure, and one which in a measure shows its extent and breadth, is the fact that the Stock Exchange for the first time in its history adjourned indefinitely at once.

1 AND* ROOF FCR A HAYSTACK. A Boar lio^i 1* ICaMly Removed and Conveniently Stored. Where it is necessary to build stacks of either buy or giuiu it is sometimes desirable to make them lurgcr than is practicable in the ordinary roaud form. To do this they are often built in an elongated shape, with straight sides, the tops carried up to a ridge instead of to a peak, and hence, from their form, called "barnstacks." frequently from 20 to 80 tons are thus stored in one mass. The advautago oi' this method is that in proportion to the number of tons stored there is less surface exposed to the elements tlian would be the case were the same amount built into sever­ al round stacks. There is, however, always difficulty in making the straight sides of such a stack, where it elopes to the ridge, so perfect that it will completely protect the contents during a prolonged rain- HAYSTACK ROOFED WITH BOARDS. storm, such as frequently comes in the early fall.

ii *. i4 THE BOLTERS' APPEAL Toollsb Reuoni Given For Their Action by the Bolting Silver Republicans. At a secret conference of the bolting silver delegates to the St. Louis conven­ tion an address to the people of the United States was agreed upon and giv­ en to the press. This declaration of free coinage doctrine was prepared after careful consideration by Senators Teller, Dubois and Cannon and other silver leaders and may therefore be held to embody the strongest arguments which can be made in favor of the silver stand­ ard. Th6 grounds on which Senator Teller and his associates ask for support are the assertions that "the basis of our money is relatively contracting that "our financial policy is dictated by creditor nations that "we produce all the necessaries of life, while other na­ tions consume our products that the restoration of bimetallism by this coun­ try will double the basis of our money system that "falling prices are the deadliest curse of national life," and that "...
