COMPARE THEM ' ""The Republican party Is unreserr- •dly for sound money. It caused the tnactment of the law providing for the resumption of specie payments In 1879; •luce then every dollar has been as good as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to •tery measure calculated to debase our currency or Impair the credit ot onr country. We are therefore opposed to the .free coinage of silver except by International agreement with the Reading -commercial nations of the world, irhlcb we pledge ourselves to promote, •nd until then such gold standard must be preserved. "All our silver and paper currency moat he maintained nt 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 legal ratio of 1C to 1, without waiting for the aid" or consent of any Otber nation. We demand that the- •tandard silver dollar shall he a full legal tender, equally with gold, for all debts, public and private, and we fav- •r such 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 present legal ratio of 10 to 1."— Populist platform, 1802. "We hold to the use of both gold and •liver .as the standard .money of the coontry, and to the coinage of both gold and silver, without discriminating •gainst either metal .or cnarge for mintage, but the dollar unit of coinage of both metals must be of equal Intrla- tlc and exchangeable value or be ad- Justed through International agreement or by such safeguards of legislation' ns shall Insure the maintenance' •f the parity of the two metals 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 redeem nblo in such coin. WE MUST IN S1ST UPON THIS POLICY AS ES PECIALLY NECESSARY FOR THE PRO'TECTION OF THE FARMERS AND LABORING CLASSES, THE FIRST AND MOST DEFENSELESS VICTIMS OF UNSTABLE MONEY AND A FLUCTUATING OUR RENCY.—Democratic platform, 1802. EFFECT"or~FREE~C01NAGE. TUie Democratic papo-rs were iy for soiuul ii)0.iH>y 'before 'Hie Chienpo convention fuul rlglntly 'too. As n.n instance of itlie * earful results of free silver as seen T>y them the following edi tortal from the Indliamiipolis Sentinel of May 0th, 1SOC Is given: "If ft were understood that this couratiry iivtended to substitute a dollsi wortli 53 cents for Ms present dollar It Is obvious that every one who had anoney coming to him would try to col lect it before tlie clwn'go was m«de and tills is what free coinage means It uneans silver monometallism. It means a silver dollar not kept at parity •\viMi the gold dollar, as at present, but resting on. its own Intrinsic value, just •as the Mexican dollar now does. Just ns soon a-s it was decided- tlio-t the change was to l>e made every creditor would demand payment ot debts banks would call 'In loans, lawsuits would begin for coillectll'orii of debts credit would bo suspended. This would make m, panic '.it once. Business would bo paralryzed. It would come before the change could be put Into effect and before t.li-o -pi-Ices would >h:Yve an op- portiniilty to rise. For Hie time bcin *ho demand for money would be so great Hint pri'ecs would bo terribly depressed. A fleer' the cluin-go was et fcctod inncl the new sitaudairS wns In force, there would, of course, be a rise In prices, but that would bo small con solaition- to those-who Had gone to pieces lin r.lie smash up." FREE COINAGE QUESTION. \VilM the FJmros ansr\ver Wie following? i; Would the opening of the miuts of tlie United Sfeutes a;one to the free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold at n l-atio of sixteen to one raise 'the price of silver bullio^to ?1.20 per ounce, measured In gold, and maintain It ait that price? 2. Has free coinage of goffl and silver in the United States or in any other counltry at a fixed ratto ever main;- tained the equalltoy of the coinage to a commercial ratio of the two metala? If so, when and Trtiere? 3. Is thicne a country In the world today that has 'the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver tlhait has gold in clrculatlioin, and Is there a gold- standard, counltry today that does not use silver'as money along with gold? 4. Are you not 1m favor of the de- monetization of both gold and si-lvet and the issuance of legal-fender paper money instead? D. How did it happen that the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver in this country never gave us as much coin money, both' gold and silver, per capita, as we now hn.ve of silver coin per capita? The tide has been for many weeks toward McKlnley. Tliose Who stand for sound money are hopeful. September Is not the month -for a furlough. October cannot be given to resting from the battle of-.the standards. The fighting has been h«avy. All along-the line the forces of silver -Wave retreated' in disorder. They -are gatili<;rln«:-be- hind the torn'ihtrenchmeme. They/art. desperate. There Is to be no relaxing of-the campaign tension. The lines m-usit be full to tl* front at every.en founder. The Popoeralts should not be allowed a second wind. Their, first wind has already done imiah harm. Let the vigor of the charge increase, each day. The last weeK must bo the. red-hot period of ithc campaign. The; last clay must-be the busiest, the VliiBf of laslt, concentrated, forward effort.! Rest will come in November. A good: campaigner never talks of victory in: September, ' . It.is said, at times, by free sllverlte's: that tbe Increased demand for silver will enhance its value. Assuming that it will the extent of the Increase depends entirely on the extent of the demand. Thus wo have a- money of steadily increasing value with no known method of determining its actual value. If it rises to gold finally what's going to make lit stop at tha.t? The same law of supply, and demand will be still in operation. If gold stands - quietly and lets the law .of supply and demand regulate silver and be suspended as to itself until silver, reaches it silver may he ambitious and go on past. You can't tell what will happen when you', suspend all known laws of trade and finance. •.The Hon. Gil Shainklin tells a funny story amd gets oft pa.triotic remarks with effect,.but he makes no free silver argument. -He carries silver coinage historically up to 1C to l^cojnmerel'ally and stops there. .His speech indicates that he Is really -for sound money, as. no doubt lie Is. Bis speech Is-a goodj souod money argument. ' -jj DEFECT CERTAIN. •*«. Prominent Populist on the Bryan and Sewall Combine. Charles X.

JOUMNAX. 'LjEL^FLET NO. 1 (Cut this out. and put in your pocket - for reference.) Would-the Tree coinage of silver help the workittgman ? Would he get more wages? Would the 'money which he might get buy more? These are questions which, every la 'boring man ouglilt to examine for himself. They vare "his own. business" anc lie has a right to take them into account, carefully, conscientiously ChbughtfuHy. He owes It to himself and to his family to do so. On the second question, as to whcth er the imoney he would get under free coinage would buy more or less than 'it does, the answer is so plain that there noed not be any difficulty in an swering fit. The depreciated charactei of ith'e sole currency of all those coun trios having the free coinage of silvei is well known to everybody. The chief question is, whether would. increase the earnings of work- iuguien. How -are you to determine -the emmings of workingmcn of countries which have free coinage? Cer- fciiiuly this seems the practical way of getting at 'it, and the practical way. 1 the one that you want in so important inaite' as thiis. Fortunately, it is easy to learn what are the earnings in the varlons trade! and occupations in the various coun tries. The facts have -been gathered by the State Department officials through their representatives abroad, and pub Hshed side by side with the wages paid in the United States for the same trades and employments. Thiis statement Is one that affects every workingman, and shows him the various sil silver-using countries of the world. In the next leaflet wo will give these figures. They are reliable, authorita tive, and will not only Interest you •but are vital to your Interests.. and those of your family. Watch for them In a recent letter to tbe manufactur ers Mr. W. F. Benjamin, editor of the Spectator, Rushford, N. Y., says: "It may be a pleasure to you to know the high esteem in which Chamberlain's medicines are held by tbe^ people of your .own States, where th?y must be best known. An aunt o? mine, who resides at Dexter, Iowa, was about'to visit me a few years since, and before leaving home wrote me, asking if they were sold here, stating If they were not she would bring a quantity with her, as she did not like to be without them." The medicines referred to are Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, famous for its cures of colds and croup: Chamberlain's Pain Balm for rheumatism, lame back, pains In the side and chest, and Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di- arrhoea Remedy for bowel .complaints. These medicines have been in constant use In Iowa for about a quarter of a century. The people have learned that they are articles of great worth and merit, and unequaled by any other. They are for sale here by B. F. Kees- llng, druggist.

Iti Salary Will Nat Support tbe Dignity of tlM Job, It was recently reported that the post of military attache to the American embassy was vacant, and had beea offered to three officers, oB of whom have declined it on the ground that tieir salaries could not support the dignity of the job, says Harper's Weekly. It is a very pretty place, ondone that has not been used to go begging-. It calls for an officer of the rank .of major, and 'gives him little to do except to look handsome and to ndorn London society with his presence. He is entitled to •wear the most decorative clothes of anyone connected with the embassy. Wben he rides out with the ambassador be goes on tic front seat inside, rind not on the box-scat with the coachman, as ill-inforroed persons have erro- reously supposed. Opportunities to meet folks that really are folks cometo him daily. He dines out nearly every night, and seldom is at loss lor a hearty meal of -nourishing food. His chief expenses arc for lodgings and for cab hire, but the hesitation of worthy officers to accept the place indicates that" cven- those expenses may be too considerable. The real trouble must be that the majors in Uncle Sam's army are middle- ag-ed men with families, and a salary that might maintain the attache himself woll enough in London will not also maintain his family, either at home in his absence or with him abroad. If lieutenants had rank enough for the place, it. would probably be easy to Icei-p it filled with young- unmarried officers of tlic requisite stature and comeliness. . AN UNFORTUNATE SPEECH. It EmbarnuMd tbe VoanB L»dy »n<l . Ainuned tbe Oulooker* It was on a Delmar avenue car. The car had. stopped, and everybody know* how, in the stillness of a stopped car, a voice as eoft as a cooing dove smites the g-eneral ear as clearly cs the strideat 'voice of the professional orator at B ward meeting, says the St. Louis Post- Dispatch. The youn? man fumbled in his pockets in Vain. He was moneyless. In a, stage whisper, intended for his companion's ears alone, but which went to the'ears of ail the passengers, without discrimination, he said: "Have you any change witJi you; I .exchanged my pants and left my money -behind?" • . Of course the passengers were all attention. They-always-are on such occasions. Tbe yoimg lady looked in her purse and -felt in her pockets. Tfbe. search was vain. .: She stage whispered: :'Tve done the same thing." She meant she had left her money at home, but she framed it unhappily. And when one or two heartless young men laughed mildly she blushed and made things worse by. explaining audi--. bly-that she had' left her money in her other dress.. A fellow .passenger-paid: both fares, and tie episode and the car passed on. . • • Klt«» 8«nt to Gre»t Altitude. When Mr. Eady first began to flyi kites at Blue Hill,.Mass., an altitude ofi 1,500 feet was considered remarkable,; but recently an altitude of 7,200 leetj above the level of the surrounding couJl-• , try was attained by a. kite. The Boston] Transcript says; "The Blue Hill, boy* '"' have now some two miles of strong wire on hand and think thatfthey can achlevS] still greater penetration into tha upper oir than the present record of a jnlwj., and a quarter. The experiments oft present week are likely to be of I portancc, since Prof. Harrington, ll chief of the weather service, and i Archibald, from England, tbe flrit f son to use kite« for meteorological i poses, are in town. These gentlemen willj visit Blue Hill and trials will be m«d«j during <the week to eclipse even the al-; ready noteworthy record." ] ; B«th Money. •;'• Among the Turk* bath'money form* an item in every marriage contract, the husband engaging to allow his wife a certain sum for bathing purpoaei.
