What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

BAPTIST YOUNG PEOPLE'S UNION National Gathering of the Society Opens im Baltimore ‘Thursday. Boston, July 16.—Following close upon the heels of the Christian Endeavor con- vention, before half the visitors attracted by that event have left the city, the mem- bers of the Massachusetts Baptist Young People’s Union gathered here this morn- ing, and at 2 o’clock this afternoon left on | a special train for Baltimore, where the: national gathering of the society will open on Thursday. The tremendous strength of the Christian Endeavor society has caused considerable alarm among the old- er members of the clergy, of the Presby- terlan church in particular.” A large pro- portion of the Presbyterian ministers are of the opinion that the organization at the Cascade and the deep water At the mouth of the Columbia the pro- that shall be so plain and explicit that ject contemplated a navigable chaiinel my fellow citizens will be satisfied that I have accomplished my task. OPENING STATEMENT OF MR. HARVEY Every Statement in His Little Book Me w Will Prove to Be True. (Copyright secured by Azel F. Hatch of Chicago.)” .- The statement made by Mr. Harvey at the opening of the debate: “IT am here to defend the facts and principles in ‘Coin'’s Financial School.’ I expect to make good in this debate the following propositions: That silver and gold are money of the constitution; that the silver dollar was the unit of value in our coinage system in this country from 1792 to 1873; that gold was measured in this silver unit and con- current coinage given to it (gold); that silver and gold combined constituted bar.

The opposition on the part of the Presbyterians is largely due to the fact that the Christian Endeavor societies in the different churches invaria- bly use their influence in favor of the ap- pointment of young ministers.

The question of finance is a very complicated one and there are some features of it about which the ablest men of the world have been differing for years. The foundation for the discussion up- on which we are about to enter is a small book published by Mr. Harvey, my opponent, and entitled “‘Coin’s Financial School.” The real alm and object of that book is to convince the people of the United States that this government alone should at once enter upon the free and unlimited coinage of silver upon the old ratio of 16 to 1. The wisdom of such a course I dispute. Mr. Harvey will still maintain the affirm- ative of that issue. I will state in the outset that from the beginning to the end of the book there is hardly. a prop- osition made to which I give my as- sent. I propose to controvert many things which = stated as facts and shall attempt prove that the entire theory as set forth by the author, if monetization of silver at a ratio to gold of 16 to 1, without waiting for the action of any other nation; that mono- metallism consists in the use of the dearer of the two metalé to the exclu- sion of the other as primary or redemp- tion money; that monometallism is an experiment on trial for the first time in the history of the world.and began with the period of 1873; that the gold unit as the measure of values, with no concur- rent coinage of another metal to assist in performing the functions of primary money, has caused the fall in prices as compared with 1872, when the world’s prices of property were measured in the money mass of both metals; that the decline in prices, covering a period of 22 years, has, as a rule, made all classes of productive, mercantile and manufacturing business unprofitable; that it has worked a hardship and in- jury to debtors who, until conscious of causes that continuously reduced the prices of their property, have contract- ed debts during these 22 years; that this fall in the prices causes a sacrifice of property to purchase the dollars with which to liquidate these debts; that in the end no one is benefited by a fall in prices but the money lender, the owner ANSWER IN THE FAIR WILL CASE Charles State That the Exeeu- tors Have No Rights San Francisco, July 16.—An answer was filed today in the suit filed by Charles L.

The crowd greeted the news of the election of John Burns, the 1 r leader, with tremendous oheers. The bulletin announcing Henry M.
