It caused the enactment of the law providing for the resumption of specie payments in 1870; Since 'then every dollar has been as good as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase tror currency or Impair the credit of our country. W ; e are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except by International agreement with the leading commercial nations of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, and until then such gold standard roust be preserved. . "All our silver and paper currency must be maintained at parity with gold, and we favor all measures designed to maintain Inviolably the obligations of the United States and all our money, whether coin or paper, at the present standard, the standard of the most enlightened nations of the earth." —Republican platform. "We demand the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present logal ratio oC 1C to 1, without waiting for -the aid or consent of any other nation. We demand that the standard sliver dollar shall be a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all debts, public and private, and we favor such legislation as will prevent the demonetization of any kind of legal. tender money by private contract."— Democratic platforin. „ "We demand, free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold at the present legal ratio of 1C to 1."— Populist platform, 1802. ..... ' . "We hold to. the use of both gold and 'silver as the standard money of .th'e country, and, to the coinage of both .gold and .silver; without discriminating .against either metal or cnarge for . mintage, bu,t the. dollar unit. of colnagt. of both metals .must be of equal Intrinsic and -.exchangeable value or be 1 ad- Justed through International agreement or by such safeguards of legJs-- lation as, shall insure the maintenance of the parity, of the two inetals and the • -equal power of every dollar at. all times In the markets and in payment of debt, and we demand that all paper currency shall be kept at par with and rede'cm- ablc in such coin. WE MUST INSIST UPON' THIS POLICY AS ESPECIALLY NECESSARY FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE FA-EMEUS AND LABORING CLASSES, THE IMRST AND MOST DEFENSELESS VICTIMS' OF UNSTABLE MONEY AND A FLUCTUATING- CURRENCY.—Democratic platform, JS92: Mil. BKOOKS'S SPEiECII. Mr. Brooks made a, masterly speccli last evcuiug. As a Democrat speaking for nntioii.il honor he advocated the laying aside for the time of party policies. He was frauk, houcst, sincere. Not a line or word breathed demagogy. It was an appeal to the Intelligence of railroad men and citizens generally. Ho asked them to study and reason. Ho gave them -an luslght into the study of lluance which showed clcary how he won his distinction. No aWer analysis of the financial situations ill this country has been m;ido by any speaker. "Capital is dead," he says, "until lft i - bor wants to use It. Labor Is idle, helpless aud f;un!shed until capital wants to employ it. The laborer would never pass from his door unless capital met him at the threshold and offered him wages for his work. You cannot injure one without injuring the other. The moment you strike down oue the other becomes a corpse." . Is this not honest and franUV'-'.-Ot^t not itrue? It it not -an equal' recognition of labor iu the progress o(..tlie world? Docs it not show clearly-th'at in this fight it is both labor and.-cap'i- tal that is attacked by a. commo'ii enemy, that enemy repudiation of honest debts and depreciated wages? The talk of coercion is nonsense. Who coerced Grover Cleveland? Who coerced Secretary Carlisle? Who coerced William D. Bynum? Who coerced all the leading Democrats of the United States? Who coerced tho two hundred and twcnty-flvo leading Democratic -papers of this country? Are not railroad men to be credited with equal intelligence when they repudiate debased money? iMr. Brooks 'has presented In a manly •and dignified way.the issues in this campaign, and his speech should be read by every citizen. IT IS NOT AT ALL PROBABLE THAT THE NEXT TIOUSE WILL HAV-E A MAJORITY FAVORABLE TO THE FREE COINAGE OF S1L-. VER AT A RATIO OF 16 TO 1: WHEN IT BECOMES A DEMONSTRATED FACT THAT THERE IS NO DANGER OF THIS COUNTRY ADOPTING THE SILVER STANDARD IN CONDUCTING THfl BUSINESS OF THE COUNTRY, PROSPERITY WILL COMB AGAIN AND, WITH LOWER TAXES ON THE NECESSARIES OF LIFE, EVERY KIND OF BUSINESS WILi BOOM AGAIN—Pharos editorial, March i'-2. isocl In h'is speeches of the last few weeks Mr. Bryan gives no hint of the moderation aod sof t-italk of his notification remarks. He throws off the cloak o£ obscure form of speech and preaches hla true creed, that of lawlessness and sectionalism. He neglects no opportunity to plant the seeds of greed and discontent. He fosters the tares of sectional strife among the people, and teaches in his Juvenile, Coin style, the heresie's of government fiat and general distribution without return of energy. It seems that the Popocrats relied too. much on the counting out pro.pensltie'3 of Arkansas. There must have been a miscalculation somewhere. The official returns show a reduced plurality in this free silver stronghold. The Populists and Democrats in fusion poll less votes than did the Democrats alone. This is not an encouraging result. The truth is that even Arkansas has taken a decided step in favor of sound money. "The precinct 1 hustlers will not be called on election day. Those having votes are Impatient for the time when, they may use their right In the cxter- TMlniatlion of the "great white terror."'. The phonograph would be a'good; design for the head of the Popocrat. ticket, ''.''.' The fact that the United States Is greater 1n 'pride and'power tlian those nations wbicK : were ruln/ed by, flat money, simply'means' that' its failure wouild be greater-arid mose disastrous,did it embrace.such a .reckless proposition. - The railroad men-are.to be congratulated ori'their'"brilliant 'success last 5 evening,' It was .the finest demonstration ever seen in Loganspbrt! ; Logansport will not suffer for'hav- ing shown an appreciation of the Pan- bandle. •' ..'.

Brown, was seen. The heavily leaved shade trees were aglow with scores of fairy lamps, made in silver countries by silver cursed labor. Iu full view of the army of Sound Moneyites was a big banner with, the suggestion, "What's the Matter With Free Coinage of Scrap Iron? 1 ' in large characters.

The seats were soon filled and every avail- aible space was taken by those whose Interest was so great that they were wiHtag to put up with temporary discomfort. The stage was most attractively arranged. Red-white-and-blue bunting covered the entire back of the . stage, and in the center formed a rosette surrounded by goldenrod. Columns of goldenrod supported flags and from the top of the proscenium the national colors fell in, graceful folds and draped the upper boxes.
