Whoever attempts, under whatever popular cry, to shake ihe stability 'of the public surrency * •.*. stabs your .interests --and your happiness to the heart, . ^ rr«c Silver Doctori DHagree. Presidential^ Candidate, W. -J. -Bryan ueclared ^ia his speech in New York city : ' : "J ain -firmly -convinced that by opening .our mints-to free and unlimited coinage at the" present ratio (1C to 1) wo can cre.ite a demand for silver which -will keep 'the price of silver bullion at $1.29 I .per <jun«ev measured in' g-old." Jodgo W.- S. JIcCairi,.of Little Rock, a free .silver leader, in Arkansas, differs from Mr; -Bryan jin his interpretation of the popocraticrplatform.-. "I am^sometimes asksd," be says,, "if Xbelieye the remonetization of .silver vvxiuld increase its value so 'as 'to make the bullion in.'a silver -dollar'tqual to the present--gold dollar. I-answcr no, • If I'tbonghtso, I would not waste time advocating, the, restoration; o£ the- unlimited, coinage of silver. The sole object ol remonetizing- silver, as I understand it, is to secure a cheaper dollar with' which to^ measure 'amd regulate prices." Here are two eminent financial doctors who agree- in prescribing- big doses ol sixteen to. one pills, but widely disagree as to the results ol the medicine.. .Whenthe leaders ol the free coinage agitation differ as .to the effects of their scheme., how : caii they expect the people to believe" that they know wha.t they are talking nbout? • '• .-••'' ••'__ '• •'• ' ..... '• "The Stamp of tne Government." "It is true," confesses -.he silver men, "that the bullion value of. the matal in a silver dollar is only 53 cents. But put the government stamp on it by free coinage and you will raise the value ol it to 100 cents." I Senator John P. Jones, ol Nevada, one of the most conspicuous and roost able of all the silver advocates, speaking. on.: April 1, 1874,. said:' "The value of g-old is not: affected .by, the stamp of the government." ..... . • . • • .-.-, Everyone! who. has considered, the, 'subject knows' that this latter; .statement-is true: The- metal in' a'- gold dol-' lor is worth exactly 100 cents, whether it be stamped by the government or not Melt, the •dollar and-run-it into any : other .form -and its. value remains unchanged. If the stamp' of 'the gorernment docs, not clian £c' the value of one-metal', i»;it' reasonable' tp-suppbse ; it would : charige that of -another? Can.it'do'ony m'ore: tor . silver • than ;it : does 1 lor, .gold ?

In 1677 tb,2 average value of the hay crop in tihe 'United States was $3.00 pur ton. -T-he following year it-dropped to $7.20 V and in .1879, the year next ensuing, it jumped -up to $0.32 per ton. , ' Again: In 1S01,'-when'this country was firmly on a gold basis, the average value of the hay crop ivas $3.40 per ton. In 1S02 it fell to $0.73 per ton, and.in 1S03 it rose to $3.03 per ton. Last year the average value was $8.58 per ton. Assuming that the fall in prices is due to the "crime of 1873," how are these fluctuations, to'be.accounted lor?. Will some Bryinite explain also why it is that the'average value of the hay crop per ton was greater in 1895, when we were on' a gold -basis, than it was in. ah78, when gold was at a premium? ' •" Hny has undoubtedly, declined in price since 1873, but way should it not have aone so? Apart from cheaper methods of production and cheaper rates ol transportation, the annual bay crop in. creased from-25,033,100 tons in 1873 to 65,766,158' tons ,ln 1893.: Last-year. It .amounted to about.47,000,000. . At the same .time the number of horses in the United States increased onJy Irom 9,222,470 in 1873 to 15,893,313 In 1805. It is estimated thnt there are nearly lilOO-,000 fewer horses in this country to-day than there were-three years ago. These plain facts and figures should not be hard, .to comprehend.

Oh, thos>?

If the United States starapi the lie "This is one dollar" on piece* of •Uwr worth 83 oepts, It will have taken the SIMPLE SUMS, FOR-SILVERITES. Prol)lem» Which Cu.n Easily Be Figured Oat by Votern. A farmer raises 1,000 bushels of wheat, for which he now gets $500, With thiit money he buys various kindfi of manufactured goods at low prices. With free coinage at sixteen to one he might get $1,000 for his wheat, but would certainly have to pay nearly twice as much for the, goods he would buy. How much would the farmer gain from a cheap money scheme which doubled the price of the things h« got in exchange for hi'^heiit? The Sherman silver law of 1890 provided for the purchase by the government of 54,000,000 ounces of silver per year. Under the operation of that law the price of silver, after a short speculative rise, fell steadily from $1.M to 73 cents per ounce. If the purchase and storage of practically the entire American production of silver could not prevent its price from falling, what reasons are there for believing that the mere net of coining silver into dollars nnd returning- them to the owners oi the bullion will double the price oi sll the silver in the world? A workingman who depends for his livelihood on the sale of his labor to an employer is now paid two dollar* per day in currency based on the gold standard and kept on a parity with gold by our laws. This two dollars will buy a relatively large quantity ol necessities. If this country adopts free coinage and goes on to a silver basis, 'two dollars will buy only one-half as much of the goods the workingman needs. Show how labor would be benefited by a policy which would cut th« purchasing power of wages in two? An investor having «noney to lend was approached by a farmer who wanted n. loan for the purpose of buying-new implements, additional slock and some fiirtilizers. "If you will let me have $SOO on the security of my land and buildings," said the farmer, "I will vote for a free silver law which will enable 1 'me to pay you back n't-xt yoai in dollars worth half of those you lend me." State how much money thai investor loaned the farmer, also the rate of interest paid. A large number of persons who complained that they were poor decided •to enact la.ws which would make them nil rich. As the poverty consisted in the lack of food, clothes, furniture, houses and other forms'of wealth, they agreed that instead of producing the things thev needed they would set men tc work digging silver, which they did not need, out of the Eocky mountains. By so doing they expected that the supply of other labor products would in some mysterious way be increased. How much is twice nothing, end how will the changing of silver bullion into coins make more houses, machinery or beef?"- • If the "sound money" vote in Ver. mont increases the republican majority from 21,000 in 1S92 to 33.000 this year, .how -long will it take the sixteen to one issue to wipe out the entire demo- .erotic vote in that state?—Whiddcn Graham. ____, THINGS MIGHT BE FAR WORSE. 'WorklDcmen Would Suffer More tlndci Free SUvor. It is a frequent excuse of unthinking men for leoning toward frf-p silver that ."things can't be worse th.-in'they now are." This is a. mistake. Matters cau be very much worse, especially for .the .•.workingman. . • . . • • -.--., First.—They would be worse if wages were paid in u j.l-oent dollar or in a dol- 'lar worth less' than" 100' cents. However it may be with mine-owners and mortgage debtors, men whose capital is their labor are not interested in having the "purchasing power of their dollar" diminished. .. i ••••• Second.—Things would .be 'made worse for the • l;732,38S savings bank depositors - in : thin state alone if.-'their $715,032,890-of savings were made payable in depreciated dollars. "'.: Third.—Things would .be-.worse for the nearly 1,000,000 pensioners if their •monthly stipend were to be.paid in 53"cent dollars. " . . " Fourth.—Things would be 'worse lor all the millions of beneficiaries of stock, mutual and.cooperative insurance companies and all the l;745,725.fhareholders Jin building and loan associations .if payment'were to jbe made.to them in any money less good than the'be'st.
