It warns the nation i;Ka.ln»t the rash-proposition., that, we should .single-handed, attempt to leplslaie silver to a parity with sold at a fictitious ratio; declares that the. free coinage of .silver means moriometal-' llsm, with sold at'a' premium, air other ' forms of our-currency at .a discount, and '.he value ot the dollar on uncertain quantity depending each day upon the gold ' prlco o£ silver bullion, with corresponding fluctuations In the value of all kinds of , property; denounces as utterly false i. •• claim that the gold standard Is a device of bankers, creditors and financiers, and declares that the gold standard IB an edict of commerce translated- into law, ^ and dictated by' those who conduct the' commerce of the world rather than those who handle the money of tho world. It.asserts that mere "moneychangrcrs" have always found more profit In a fluctuating than.... a nxed currency, and continues: "Bankers are.not mere.money changers; they are trusted custodians of the money of tho world. As bankers, we are debtors to tho extent of our deposits. Wo have received these deposits In money as good as gold. We des.ve to return them In money of equal value.' It will be Impossible for banks, life Insurance companies, mutual benefit orders, building and loan associations to return to their creditors money equal in value to that which they have received If our currency Is depreciated to tho bullion-metal composing our national standard of value which Is not shared by every man who owes a dollar, or-has a dollar due to him. We desire to have debts due us paid in as good money as we have loaned. We dcslro to pay our debts In the same way. Eduoii Keith's Body Found. Chicago, Sept.
