Satur day was another feather in McKinleys cap if presenting a proposition and bring ing it successfully to a vote is any crite rion It was he who after the house caucus last Wednesday had talked on

buying silver as a commodity A Complaint Against the TCnst He said that the attitude of the Repub licans on this question did credit neither to their heads nor to their hearts The people of the west bought the highly pro tected products of the east Every year the Republicans of the west helped the Republicans of the east win the battle of protection but when the Republicans of the west asked the Republicans of the east to put silver where it ought to be they shrank back as from an unclean thing and said the west wanted to chea them with a 72 cent dollar His people dii not like this bill They objected especially to the bullion redemption feature H had voted against it in season and out o season at all times and in all places Th mononietalist said thut a dolla was a dishonest dollar A 148cent dolla was more dishonest Cannon for the Whole Sfeosure Cannon of Illinois said he stood upoi the platform of the Republican party H had always favored the use of the tw metals and he would not
