It caused the enactment of the law providing for tue resumption of specie payments In 1879; •Ince then every dollar has been as good as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to erery measure calculated to debase our currency or Impair the credit of oar country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage of silver except by International agreement with the lead- Ing commercial nations of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, and until then such gold standard must be preserved. "All our silver and paper currency .must' be maintained at parity with gold, and we favor all measures de- •Igned 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 legal, ratio of 1C to 1, without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation. We demand that the standard silver dollar shall be a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all debts, public and private, and we favor snch legislation as will prevent the demonetization of .any kind of legal tender money ' by private contract."— Democratic platform. "We demand free and -unlimited coinage of silver and gold at. the pres- .«nf legal ' ' ratio of 16 to 1."— Populist platform, 1892: " ' „ "We hold to the use of both gold and •liver as the .standard '.money of the country, nnd to the ; coinage of both gold and .silver, wlthont discriminating against • either metal or cnarge.for mintage, ;but the dollar unit of coinage of .both -metals must be of eqttaUntrlH- alc and exchangeable value or T)e adjusted 'through International agreement or bj* such' safeguards of legislation' as shall Insure the inalntenance of 'the parity of the two .inetals ^ml the «qjialppWf;Of. every dollar at all 'times In the "markets and In. payment <if debt, rrencr ' able In'.such-coin/WE MUST' INSIST UPON THIS POLICY AS ESPECIALLY NECESSARY FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE FARMERS AXD LABORING CLASSES, /THE FIRST AND MOST DEFENSELESS VICTIMS OF -UNSTABLE MONEY AND A" FLUCTUATING CURRENCY.—Democratic platform, 1S02. THE REAL ISSUES. Mr. Bryan lias given m,-iuy evidences of liis demagogy, but perhaps uouc more forcible than Ihls statement in a recent speech: "W-o luivf a cause that ;ippeuls,-to Hie C those who think, and to the iif f!)ose tliat feel, and we are .•\villiug lo jrluL-u tfi'jif oaus.c. iu op-pos!: Won to tlic crtuso wh.lv.-b ninrely nppeals to tbe pocki-.tbooli." • i If tliero ovoi' \vns nu n-ppoal -to the pot-ketbook lit is that ot Mr. Bryan tn his tours. He arouses the cupidity of the miuo owners by assuring them tti'at hi his opinion the value of silver bullion will rise 10 $1:20 per ounces It is (S cents now. In the same bronth he assures the fanners -thiit they cau pay their debts ill dollars costing only ">" cents. These propositions are directly aaitosc-nistlc, bm. what.docs M^r, Bryan care 1C he can catch them coni'lng and SOiug? The coustiiutiou guarantees protection to life, liberty aud property. The proposition of Mr. Bryan is that he shall enhance the value of one lot of property by law aud sli-all take a.way halt' -t.be-value of another lot by the same law. Ho would -bo far more holiest it' be threw oit his mask 'and stated tha.t lie was hi favor oC destroying the republic. That is what his. policies menu, and that is what every plank of the Chicago platform menus. Those, who rally for protection of property also stand for tho protection oC life and liberty. What else docs the attack on the laws mean but the right to riot nud destroy? This is the real issue, disguise'It as' you 'mn"?. ' " : ' It 'Is true that many honest and sincere men arc supporting the Chicago platform. It is true that many farmers, -the most loyal and the most conservative of.our people, Wave not awakened to -the real issues. That does not change the situation. An analysis of the conditions today shows that in the-thirty' years ol' Republican rule all ithe elements opposed to government of any kind found rohigc In the Democratic party. This was natural. When Democracy got control there was a failure in the vital issue- distinguishing the two leading parties, the tariff, and the Democratic leaders by that failure lost control. Whether that failure was a result of the policy or the result of conditions need .not now be discussed. The, leaders were discredited and were without influence. It is time now for thoughtful men, Republicans, DemocAits or Populists, to unite. The first duty Is the preservation of the government. L'aiter on tbere may bo divisions on policies. But the Chicago platform, In'Its depreciated money, attacks property, in its raid on the courts, attacks life and liberty. It is against every clause of the constitution of the United States. Mr. Bryan as Its representative is a fitting candidate. Loyal to no party, demagogical in Ms utterances, revolutionary in his ideas, ignorant of the first principles of government, inexperienced in public affairs, he relies simply on the-gift of oratory -to promote him to a position he is wholly incompetent 'and unworthy to fill. For the honest and loyal Democrats who see In the situation., no alarming conditions, The Journal has the utmost respect. We do not all.se* alike. The man who sees'the black side of a. sign swears' that tbc sign is black, and the man. who looks on the blue side swears that It is blue. But the safety of the republic depends on the men. who look upon both sides, nudthelr duty .is clear. The'United States had ..the double •standard for 81 years.—Pharos. Only in name. 'At no time did'tbe two metals circulate at *i. parity. The gor- ernmeut attempted to Hitch: up silver and gold but they never pulled 'together. «0no or the other pulled back. There has been no actual change In our -financial system from Jefferson and Jackson to Cleveland, aud the Republicans propose that there shall not cusccl of adversity? Grover Cleveland, is not n Republican. The Panhandle company is not in politics.' Politics are not involved. When a man discovers his place of bus- .Iness on fire and himself ami his em- ployes About to be ruined; he naturally ies to extinguish tlie flames anct his .employes do the same. , Has the PhflxOB ever tried crackou ice?
