cago then delivered the annual ad- i
Of the silver issue. Mr. Tracy said: i
"It is in keeping with the record of the ,
past that the Democratic leaders |
should -strive to take advantage of a
sentimeiJt created largely through
their own blundering and then go
shouting from the housetops their de-
votion to silver, in the hope that they
may through this agitation be saved
from oblivion. The facts are the Dem-
oeratio party never did anything for
silver in any of the years it was in
"The people of this country want
more money but only on one condition,
and that is that it be sound and cur-
rent the world over. There is no
question as to which party is to be en-
trusted with the solving of this prob-
lem. The record of the Republican
party proves that it has always been
in favor of Increasing the currency in
keeping with the demands of the coun-
try, but only on the basis that the
purchasing and debt-paying power of
a dollar, whether of silver or gold,
shall at all times be kept equal.
"The people will be satisfied to leave
the solving of the currency question in
the hands of the Republican party.
They know that in the future as in the
past the interests of silver in all its
relations to the people can safely be
entrusted to the protecting care of
that party. This entire question as to
the future use of silver will probably
be settled by the great commercial na-
tions of the World within a year. Ger-
many and fiance are seeking" bimetall-
ism and England is fast turning in that
direction. What the people should do
is to bring pressure to bear upon their
representatives for the appointment of
delegates to an international confer-
ence with power to act. aLd insist
upon an agreement and obligation
from the nations participating to
maintain the ratio as there adopted."
Mr. Traeey closed with an eulogy of
the protective system and the Ameri-
can policy of the late James O. Blaine.
In his address of welcome President
D. D. Woodmansed of the Ohio league
expressed regret that Governor Mc-
Kinley was prevented by his Kansas
engagement from welcoming the dele-
gates to Ohio. The reference t i Mc-
Kinley caused a loud anil continuous
however, that Governor Mclvinley
would reach the city by Friday even-
ing and at the llollenden would be
glad to greet all and say farewell to
one and all.
The secretary announced that there
were represented at the convention
forty-six states and territories, the
largest number ever represented.
Among the delegates were a number
of ladies, four from Colorado, one from
New Yorit, two from Washington and
three from Illinois. The latter repre-
sented the Woman's league clubs in

that Great Britain would consent to

Hamuuna, June 20.—In the presence
of the greatest aggregation of war-
ships ever gathered together at one
time, the celebration of the opening
of the great Baltic canal, linking the
North and East seas, began to-day
when the emperor of Germany and all
the representatives of the nations as-
sembled here, and a great state dinner
and a concert on an island in the Alster
basin were followed by a tour of Ham-
burg harbor and the departure of the
kaiser for Kiel on his yacht.
Germany has about fifty large ®ivi
small vessels of her imperial navy at
the opening exercises, while the other
nations are represented as follows:
Great Britain by ten vessels with a
total displacement of 78,M0 tons, 171
officers and 4,;i80 men; Italy by nine
vessels with a total displacement of
38,317 tons, 180 officers and 3,300 men;
the United States by four vessels with
a total displacement of 21,'471 tons,
seventy-five officers and 1.4(. 7 men;
France bv three vessels with 18,880
tons displacement, sixty officers and
1,300 men; Russia by three vessels with
20,872 tons, seventy officers and 1,30(5
men; Austria-Hungary by four vessels
with a total displacement of 13,894
tons, fifty-two officers and 1,212 men;

Turkey by one cruiser corvette with
fifteen officers, 300 men and 1,900
tons—in all fifty-two foreign vessels
with 814 officers and 17,403 men.
The greatest possible precautions
have beerf taken to guard against anv
possible attack by anarchists. Over
1,000 military men and numbers of the
royal police force are on duty, besides
thousands of soldiers and large forces
of detectives from Russia, France and
The purpose of the Baltic canal is a
two-fold one, commercial and naval.
As for the commercial advantages,
they result plainly enough since the
shortening of a voyage hitherto made
around the Skager rock is considerable.
From Newcastle, Hull and London, the
saving in nautical miles is 107. 181 and
239 respectively; from Dunkirk and
other points along the French, Bel-
gium and Dutch coasts, from 230 to 250
miles, and from Emden, Bremen and
Hamburg, 583, 323 and 425 miles re-
spectively. A similar saving of dis-
tance and time is effected for Baltic
ports of Prussia, Mecklenburg and
The military advantages accruing
lie in the fact that henceforth in time
of war the German navy cannot be
rent or kept apart and provisioning of
either the Baltic or the North sea can-
not be interrupted or rendered impos-
The construction of the canal was
begun eight years ago and its total
cost has been $38,5oo,ooo.

suit, so say the government officials,
in which they hope to recover nearly
^10,000 from Rhodes, which they
