MeKinley's letter of acceptance is as Bound as a gold dollar. The following are some of his best points: TVhat Free Coln»go Mciiun. The character of the money which shall measure our values arid exchanged and settle our balances with one another and with the nations of the world is oi such primary importance and so far- reaching in its consequences as to call for the most painstaking: investigation, and in the end a,sober and unprejudiced judgment at the polls. We must not be misled by phrases nor deluded by fake theories." Free silver would not mean- that silver dollars were to be freely had without cost or labor. It would ^mean the free use of the mints of the United States for the few who are owners of silver bullion, but would moke silver coin no freer to the many who are engaged in other enterprises. It would not moke labor easier, the. hours of labor shorter or the pny better. It, would not make farming- less laborious or more profitable. It would not start a factory or make.a demand for an additional day's labor. It would create no new occupations. It would add nothing to the comfort of the masses, the capital of the people or the wealth of the nation. It seeks to introduce a new measure of value, but would add :io value to the thing measured. It would not conserve values*. On the contrary, it would derange all existing values. It would not restore business confidence, but its direct effect would be,to destroy the.little which yet remains. The meaning- of the coinage plan adopted at Chicago is that anyone may tnkc n quantity of silver bullion, now worth 53 cents, to the mints of the Ifni'ted States, have it coined at the expense of the government nnd receive for it a, silver dollar which shall be legal tender for the payment of all debts, public and private. The.owner of the silver bull ion would get the silver dollar. It would belong to him and nobody else. Other people would get it only by their labor, the products of their land or something of value. The bullion owner, on the basis of present values, would receive the silver dollar for 53 cents' 1 worth of silver, nnd other people would V required to receive it-as a full dollar in" the payment, of debts. .The government would get nothing from the trans-, action. It would, bear the- expense_of coining the silver, 'and the community would suffer loss by its use. Sllvor DollHw'-Now on m Gold H»»l«. We. have coined since 18,78 more than 400,000;000 of 'silver ' dollars, which nre maintained by. the government at-.parity with .gold and are full legnl '.tender for the .payment of all debts, public and private. Ho ware the. silver dollars now in use different from, those 'which would be in use under free coinage?: They are to be of the same, weight nnd .fineness. ' They nre to bear the same stamp of the government. Why should they not be of the same value.? I.answer: ; The silver dollars now in use'were coined .on. account of. the government, and not for private ac- count'or gain, and the government has solemnly agreed to keep them as good, as .the best dollars we have.

It is mere pretense 1 to attribute the hard times to' the fact that all our cur- 'rency is on 'a. gold'-basis. Good:money never-made hard.times. iThose ,who as- eert that our -present industrial .and financial depression is the result of.the cold standard have not read American history arigiit or been, careful student* of the even ts : of : recent years. We never : had' greater prosperity in this country • in every iield: of employment and indus .-try, than ;ln .the busy ..years, from; 1880 to 1892, during alL;pf which.time ,thi« country, wa*. on '-. a / 'gold ,basls ; and em militia, "and put William J. Uryaii in command of them—it cannot enforce the decree that one ounce of gold is the equivalent of sixteen ounces of silver Not only that, not France and England and Germany can do that unless thv markets respond. Why? You may make me take a silver dollar for n debt, but if I have bought my goods at gold prices you cannot make me give ns many yards of cloth for a silver dollar as I have been in the hnbit of giving for <i gold one. If I have a gold dollar in this hand nud a silver one in that, nnd you declare they ere equal, and I can take that gold dollar to a bullion broker and get tiwo dollars for it, I know it ts a lie. If have notihing but n gold dollar, and sugar is 20 pounds for one dollar, I will not give that gold dollar for 20 pounds of sugnr. I will take-it around ton broker and get two silver dollars-for it and get the 20 pourKlsof sugar and have one silver dollar left. So it is, tny friends. We can of ourselves, of our own wisdom, declare the unit of value. We can coin silver freely, but we cannot innke sixteen ounces of silver equal to one ounce of gold unless it is. And it is not unless the merchants take it. at that rate. That is where nil this thins comes in. Itis trade, itis the merchant, it is the man who exchanges and deal.- in these things that fixes the relative value, and if yon do not'take the value he. fixes the gold dollar will go back to ' the gold vault and the'gold'will go out of circulation.—Ex-President Harrison, n His New York Speech. "The I'roe CoinnfCO Problem." "The Free Coinage Problem" is the itle of a penny magazine or pamphlet, Lewis N. Lorabi-tz, of 'Louisville, It contains one of the fairest and >est discussions of the money question to be had at any price. It contains in very brief space and in simple language as much of the early history of money especially in this country, us is necessary to understand the present situation. It discusses in a logical, unbiased arid impartial manner the probable effects of the proposed free coinage Icgis- .atlon upon all classes, nnd especially upon farmers and wnge-ea rnera. Jt presents a vivid picture of the present harrl lot of many farmers and shows what tind of money will be for their best interests. Th'a little 48-page magai-.ine contains more of monetary history and facts nnd more of sound argument,- thau many books which cost 100 times it price.' It makes it possible for any Intelligent laborer or fnrmer who car spare one cent to become well informec on the money question before he casts his/vote.'. Ten or fifteen copies can he ordered at once for ten. or fifteen persons. Otherwise It will' cost two cents to send one cent. Address Present Prob lems Publishing- company, 57 Purl place, New.

Ju his great speech in Madison Square C'nrden, 'New York city. I'X-Congivssmu.n • Sonrkc 1 Cochriui said in reply to I'rcsi- icntial Candidate.. Bryan: . If everything- in this world or hnhis ountrv, including labor, be inereiised n value tp-mori-nw in like proportion, iot one of us would be affected at all. f that was Mr. Bryan's scheme, he vould never have a populist nomination o give him importance in the eyes of his community. If that were nil that 10 meant, he would not be supporting t, and I would not be taking the Trouble o oppose it. If everything in the world be Increased ten per oejit. in value, why, we would pay ten percent, in nddition for what we would buy and get ten-per cent, more for what we would sell.. What, then, is it?' It is r,n increase in the price of commodities and allowing abor to shift for itself. If the price of ommodities be increased and the price of labor be left stationary that means a cutting down of the rate of wages. If, nstead of a dollar which consists of a given quantity of gold equal to 100 cents anywhere in the world, with the purchasing power of 100 cents, the laborer is to be paid in dollars worth 50 cents each, he can only buy half as much with a day's wages as lie buys now. If the value of the populist scheme, then, s to be tested, let the laboring men of this country ask Mr. Bryan and his wpulist friends a evervday Question: i?'" Mr. Bryan himself has a glimmering idea of where the laborer will come in, or, rather, of where he will go out. There is one paragraph in his speech which—whether it was the result of an unconscious stumbling into candor or whether it was a contribution made m the stress of. logical discussion I am utterly unable to say—that throws a flood of light upon the whole purpose underlying' this populist agitation. Wage- earners, Mr. Brynn says, know that while n, gold standard raises the purchasing power of the dollar it also makes it more difficult to obtain possession of the dollar. They know that , . . pldyed.more «bld. money in its fiscal and business, operations' than ever before. . .The great trouble ,a.bout repudiation • is'.that .you,cannot .pay .debts.with..I 'more than once.

If that means anything, it means that » cheap dollar would give him more employment, more frequent employment, more work and u chance to get, ^employment after ho was discharged. If that means anything in the world to a sane man, it means that if the laborer is willing to have his wages cut down he will get more work. If it were true that a reduction in the rate of wages would increase the chance of employment, I would not blame Mr. Bryan for. telling, the truth, because, however unpalatable, the truth may be, I conceive it the duty of any man. who attempts to address his fellow-citizens never to shrink.from astatcmentof the whole truth, whatever may be the consequences to himself. But, as a matter of fact, a diminution in the rate of wages does uot increase thescope of employment. There cannot be an abundant product unless labor is extensively, employed. You cannot have high wages unless there is an extensive production m every department of industry, and that is why I claim that wages are the one sole test of a country's condition—that high wages mean an -abundant protection, and abundance necessarily means prosperity. -Mr. Bryan, on the. other kand.'wo.uld have you believe, that prosperity is advanced by cheapening the rate of wages, but the fall in the rate of wages always comes from a narrow production, 'and narrow production, means there is-little demand for labor in the market. When,! after the .panic of 1873, the price of-.lnhor fell; to, 90 cents a 'duy,' it was harder to. obtain work than when the .rate'.of labor.was two dollars, and the difference between the populist, who seeks-td cut down the rate of wages, and the democrat, who ; seeks to'pro'tect it, tsithat:the democrat .believes that high-wagesrandtprosperJty nre .synonymous, and the populist, wants to cut the rate of wages in order that he may tempt the former to make w" upon his own working-men^ Property and Indottry-.

EX-MINISTER PHELPS. ;t.»tu« ill« liciiHOiMi for Oppo»In|T tb« ChlctiRO PliLtronu. Hou. Edward J. Phelps, ex-minister to England,'has. written the following letter, iu which he urges all true democrats to join in defeating the candidates who stand on. the--on-democratic platform adopted at Chicago: I regard the pending presidential, election as presenting- tho most dangerous crisis that this country has ever encountered. It does not, in my,.judgment, involve any political controversy nor _ v question of (he supremacy of^party, for such considerations are lost sight of |n the far greater gravity.of the situation^ Tlie real issue is one upon which ull patriotic men and'all. who are interested in the prosperity and welfare of -the country should find themselves upon one side and opposed ton.common i>:iemy. The attack that we have to resist, is not upon the policy but -upon the lite o£ the nation,'for .they .would take its life who destroy the. means by which it lives—the business of many thousands and the industry of millions. On these we are all, whether rich or. poor. . high or low, alike dependent. Those who nre independently rich are • very few in proportion to the 70,000,000 01' American people, the vast majority Of whom gain their living by some form or other of useful employment.. That there should be prosperity in some of these employments und not in others, or among one class of people a.nd not, among others, is impossible, for they all rest upon a common foundation and are .affected by the same considerations. "Business-,"' is a generic term and comprehends all lawful industries. When it is stimulated, all profit; when it is depressed, all suiter. So part of the body •ax escape the effect of a general paraly- is or fail to get the benefit of general 0-oocl health. When business flourishes, "he laborer is in demand; when it declines, he stands idle in the market place. Bvsiness of whatever sort in.acoun- ry like ours, rich in resources, full of .nenry and vitality, with all harvests verywhorc ready for the sickle, rests •hiefly up° n two factors—public confidence" and a sound and stable currency. Vhen cither is—and much more when ,oth arc-impaired or even gravely !n«2a toned, business suffers, general de- .rcssion comes, labor declines, and the .volf approaches many a door. Without confidence there can be no credit, no -n,terpr-:?e. Capital is hoarded, sent abroad or lies idle, and all industries diminish or cease, and the surest way he world has ever seen to destroy con- idence is to debase the currency and to make it uncertain from day to day how much a dollar is worth and how much t is going to count for in the' near future—to take away, as is now proposed, one-half its value, to begin with and to «et the other half to fluctuating to an ndefinite extent, with the rising and 1be settingof the sun and the-approach of every storm. • There is, therefore, in my judgment, ao man more criminal or who is a worse public enemy than he who engages in cr countenances that infamous and destructive attempt., because the less a man has, or the less he earns, the more necessary it is to him that the value of that little should. be maintained and made sure, and'that the few dollars in his pocket should be as good dollars as As'well might'the steerage In a vessel in, midocean ' BOY RIDES A TURTLE. | Singular SIoo'o of Locomotion En>ploy««| . by » Florida, Vouuft»tor. i ••• "Among'the visitors to Philadelphia-; .;. recently was John Itaines, of New York.; * who sells clothing in tlie south. -Johfl. usually lias a good story to tell, and the,..,; last trip furnished him his best.
