This is The Policy New York Objects To.
Platt Wants a Gold Standard Plank in
St. Louis, June 12.—To an As-
sociated l’ress reporter today
Platt said lie bad not spoken
particularly of the New York
contests but upon the whole pro-
ceedings of the committee. They
are riding rough shod over every-
thing, he said: “The question
of a man's title to a seat is not
considered on the merits but as
to liis position on the presidential
candidates. Hahn, member of the
committee from Ohio has dec’ared
the only question involved in
these contests is whether or not
the man is for McKinley and that
line of policy is, what New York
Platt reiterated that Morton’s
name be presented and voted for.
Platt has received a dispatch
from Reed who says Manley’s
utterance was wholly unauthor-
ized and expressing astonishment
that Manley had taken such a
course. Platt is interested in
having a gold standard plank in
the platform. “From all 1 have
heard” he said, “I think the con-
vention will take that course.
There seems to be a demand that
cannot be ignored in favor of a
firm declaration for the gold
standard. Silver men will not be
satisfied with any kind of a strad-
dle and there should be no at-
tempt to have anything but a
straight gold declaration.”
Friendly to McKinley.
St. Louis, June l'L—On mot-
ion of Scott, of W. Ya., time for
presentation cases of claimants
to seats was reduced by the Nat-
ional committee today from 25 to
10 minutes by vote of 25 to 19.
Scott said it was clear at the
present rate of progress the com-
mittee would be engaged entire-
ly too long. He said only sixty
of 168 seats in the contest had
been awarded. Notice was given
of withdrawal of contest in eight
Virginia district and W. B.
Shumate and H. Y. Wale were
therefore declared entitled to
seats. They are instructed for
McKinley. Jas. Francis Burke of
Pittsburg was elected official re-
porter of the convention. The
committee then resumed consid-
eration of Mississippi contests,
beginning with that from the

the list of Mississippi contests.
This was another case of two
conventions involving mutual ac-
cusations of irregularity irom
the Hill and Lynch forces.
James M. Matthews and Geo. C.
Cranberry were Hill claimants, J.
Meredith Matthews and Thomas
E. Richardson Lynch men, all
being advocates of McKinley.
The Hill men were seated. The

THEY CALL IT A BLUFF.
But Platt Threatens to Walk Out of
St. Louis, June 12.—Today
there was in circulation a report
that Thomas C. Platt had de-
clared his intention of bolting if
six contestants from New York
should be seated. It is learned
from members of the national
committee that probably the six
Platt men will be thrown out
and other men placed on tempo-
Friends of McKinley said Platt
was putting up a grand bluff.
One of Platt's friends stated
emphatically the position of Platt
was that in case the six regularly
elected delegates of New York
should be unseated, sixty’ more
delegates would walk out of the
convention. On the other hand it
is said 25 to 30 delegates from New
York are ardent McKinley men
and cannot be expected to follow
Platt. Members of the national
committee think the talk of New
York is wholly for the purpose of
influencing its decisions.
It Would Mean Defeat.
Chicago, June 12.—The
Record publishes the following:
While California is in favor of
free coinage of silver it still has
interests it considers greater and
that is why it favors protection.

natural products, in wool and
live stock and we are as desirous
for extreme and radical pro
tection as for free coinage silver
As republicans we want to fight

A Literary Bureau Established at
Creston, Io., June 10.—At a
meeting of the delegates to the
National Convention at Pes
Moines last Saturday a literary
bureau was formed with S. A.
Brewster, editor of the Daily Ad-
vertiser of this city, as chairman.
The object of the bureau is to
promote the interests of Iowa’s
favorite son, Horace P. Boies, for
the presidency. The life of Boies
and his views will be published
■and circulated broadcast. Head-
quarters will be opened at
Chicago at an early day and the
candidacy of Boies pushed to the
The Carmen Shut Down.
Solomon\tl,i<k, Ariz., June 12.
—News from Globe announces
that the mine owned and operated
by the Old Dominion Mining and
Smelting company with home of-
fice at Boston has been closed
down, This throws 250 men out
of emp’oyment without warning.
The shut down is not because the
enterprise was unprofitable, but
is the result of trouble between
miners and superintendent who
reduced wages of the Carmen
from $2 50 to $2.25 per day, after
which the miners ran him out of
London, June 12.—A special
from Pretoria says as soon as the
decision of the executive council

Geo. Farrar, Col. Rhodes and J.
W. Leonard, the Johannesburg
reform committee leaders, upon
payment of lines of $125,000 each
was announced, Barney Barnato
went to jail with a check for
$250,000 to pay the fines of Ham-
mond and Rhodes. He found the
matter already arranged. Ham-
mond, Farrar and Phillips have
signed an agreement to abstain
hereafter from any interference
in the affairs of the South Afri-
can republic, consequently the
banishment imposed apon them
has been suspended.
Huntington, W. Va., June
12.—Forty miles east of Charles-
ton on the C. & O. road masked
men boarded the Washington and
Cincinnati express train last mid-
night, crawled over the engine
tender into the cab witli revol-
vers drawn. The engineer
stopped the train. lie was com-
manded to cut loose the express
car. This was done. Passengers
were awakened and lights were
extinguished. After ten minutes
work the bandits became fright-
ened and escaped to the
The Opening Campaign in the
For Mexico the president cam-
paign just beginning in the United'
States is of an importance which
may not easily be exaggerated.
Every move on the American
political chess-board will be
studied in all its bearings by
Mexican statesmen. If the St.
convention declares unequivocally
for gold, the currency issue will
begin to take form, for the tempta-
tion of the Democrats, who are
plainly swinging away from Pres-
ident Cleveland and Mr. Carlisle,
will be to adopt a straightout
silver plank, and then the issue
will be fairly made.
But Mexico’s interest is that
the United States remain on
gold basis, at least for a quarter
of a century more. We here do
not want to see American man-
ufactures being turned out on a
will capital continue to flow in
here, attracted by the prospect
of producing on a silver, and ex-
porting on a gold, basis.
Our ablest bankers are of one
mind as to the disastrous effects
of a silver-basis in the United
States, that is, for us. It might
render the United States the
greatest manufacturing and
foreign trading nation on earth,
but frankly, Mexico can not be
expected to desire the prosperity
even of the most friendly nation
at the expenses of her own indus-

Mr. Henry Roth, of 1848 South 9th
Street, St. Louis, was given the usual
mercurial treatment for contagious
blood poison. He was twice pronounc-
ed cured, but the disease returned each
time, he was seized with rheumatic
pains, and^ed lumps and sores cov-
ered his body.
‘‘I was in a hor-
rible fix” he
says, “and the
ment I receiv-
ed, the worse I
seemed to get.
A New York
lie could cure
me, but his
me no good
whatever. 1 was stiff and full of
pains, my left arm was useless so
that I was unable to do even the
lightest work. This was my condition
when I began to take S. 8. 8., and a
few bottles convinced me that I was
being benefitted. I continued the
medicine, and one dozen bottles cured
me sound and well. My system was
under the effects of mercury, and I
would soon have been a complete
wreck but for S. S. S.”
S. S. S., (guaranteed purely vegetables
is the only cure
for real blood dis-
eases. The mer-
of the doctors al-
ways does more
harm than good. Beware of mercury!
