of of Their tised ent, After all, there is sweet contentment, for the defeated candidates. They may now retire to the country home, listen to the lay of the hen, watch the old spotted cow chew the cud of peace, and then forget the stormy billows. In wandering in the pathless wood and along the meadow brook, with burrs on his cont tail and peace in his heart, the defeated candidate is to be envied far more than he who has thrown himself into the litical cyclone we are now entering. Will Kansas be lost to the republican party this year on the financial issue, innocently asks the Kansas City Jonrnal. Of course not, if allowed to conduct her own campaign, and gold standard speakers keep hands off.

The average Kansas voter thinks a vast deal more of full grown Texas steer, than he does gilded calf from Wall street. -Independence Call. An Altoona correspondent to the Citi zen, presumably C. A.

At Sundry and diverse times we have mentioned facts in these columns which have tended to show the organic inconsistency of things generally and now we wish to submit some testimony for the other side. Mr. Wantmore is the name of a Kearney county farmer who is alrendy the father of twelve children.Mail and Breeze. is no more need of a silver dolfar containing 100 cents worth of silver, than there is of a paper dollar containing 100 cents worth of paper." That is. what John J.

'Ingalls declared in a speech in Fredonia July 21, 1894. The populists around the "out-edge" of senti- the crowd vigorously applauded the ment at once--a thing never, before known at a republican meeting in Wilson county. Citizen. Ingalls told the truth. People who have studied the question no longer contend that fiat money cannot be safely circulated and several of the best financiers in this county will tell the editor of the Citizen so too, if he will ask them.

We call his attention to the following paragraph which may be found on page: 221, chapter 12, in Tiffany's great work on constitutional law: is legally no such thing as gold or silver money 01. paper money; money is the sovereign which authority capable im- pressed on that is upon which the stamp 18 placed is taking and retaining the impression; that called coin; the coin may be metal, parchment or paper; the metal, value is in material the stamp, and not in the or.
