Wonder if Republican papers have
noticed that coal as well as wheat
is climbing skyward in price. They
seem to be long on wheat and short
on coal editorials.
Why is it that intelligent men will
believe in the theory of intrinsic
value in money when such a theory
is controverted by every standard
authority on the subject, in the
world? The same men would cite
you to standard authority to sustain
them on almost any other subject.
This is a subject, however, they nev-

A W. Virginia judge has enjoined
the starving miners of that state
marching in a body. The right of
people to peaceably assemble and
discuss their grievances is one of
the rights guaranteed Americans by
the constitution; but where corpor-
ation interests are affected by such
meeting an exception in constitution
should have been made in order that
some of our judges might be saved
from an awkward position in con-
es and always vote for measures in
interests of the corporations. The
people, however, seem to attach
more importance to the talk of
these politicians than to their votes
on measures. A man may profess
religion and be a hypocrite, a man
I may talk honestly and act dishonest-
ly. A man may declare he favors
free coinage, but if he votes to de-
i feat a measure prohibiting gold

Jacob S. Coxey has been nominat-
ed by the Ohio Populists as their
candidate for governor, and the
Democrats of that state are hot and
are charging that the Populists of
Ohio are only serving as a "side
show" for Hanna and the Republic
ans. Of course if the Populists of
Ohio had joined the Democrats in
trying to foist a silver coated
tional bank goldbug into the chief
executive chair of the state, we have
no doubt the Democratic press of
the state would have been very pro-
fuse in their flattery of the patriot-
ism ot the Populists: but deep down
in their hearts they could not find
language to express their eontempt
for the sycophancy of their allies.
The Republican party, since the or-
ganization of the Peoples party, has
charged it with being a Democratic
annex, and now the Democrats are
charging it with being a Republican
annex. It would profit the old par-
ties just as much to be honest, (if
their training had been such as to
admit it), and recognize that the
Populist party is housekeeping for
itself, and don't care a continental
about the troubles of the old par
ties, save in so far as these troubles
enable it to secure pay boarders.
1 he vermin in the two old party ho-
tels are making it hot for their
guests at the present time and we
are not at all surprised to see the
old boarding house keepers trying to
run down the new hotel by labelling
it the back yard for one or the oth-
er of them as suits the occasion.

The Wheat .Situation.
It is not best for farmers to become
imbued with the idea that they will
get a dollar a bushel for their wheat.
It may go to a dollar, but there is
nothing in the condition of the world's
crop to warrant a belief in extraordi-
nary high prices.
The United States crop is fully up
to standard in quantity and above the
average in quality. There is a short-
age in some of the winter wheat grow-
ing states, but they are not the big
producing ones. The extraordinary
crop in Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska
and the Pacific slope will more than
make up for the shortage in the other
winter wheat states. The spring
wheat will undoubtedly fall short of
its normal amount.
Australia, Argentine republic, and
India have no wheat for export. The
exports from these countries have
reached !H) million bushels.
Russia's latest reports are that the
wheat will be about an average crop.
Germany will be 8 millions short of
1884. France will produce a normal
crop, according to the Mark Lane Ex-
press. Austro-Hungary will be self-
supporting according to the same
source of information.
l'his makes the world's supply but
little under normal.
The prices in the Chicago and New
^ ork markets are not as high yet as
in 1891 at this season, nor as high as
in 1892 and 1893 later in the year, but
prices range much higher than ihey
were at any time in 1894,189jand ISiHi.
By a change in freight rates and the
turning of wheat towards the gulf,
Oklahoma wheat sells 12 cents nearer
Chicago prices than formerly, so that
whatever happens the Oklahoma far-
mer will get a comparatively good
price, but holding for a dollar is dan-
