'• -'There has been a battle royal between (lie gold wing of tlie Democracy at the State capital and the Matthews or silver wiwg. Ir was expected that so intense wa.s tin) fooliug there would be serious trouble at the primaries, but the contesting forces coutenlecl tliem.sel.ves wirJi'organizing separately and as a result Chore were two primaries iu most of the wards with the two chairmen in some instances presiding on tlie same platform.

J3x-Co:igii'ss:iiau JB,rn,iii)i h.-i* been making sound moiify speeches ovsr the cii.v for Die last .mouth. Last week ho made an address in the store room on MiLSsa.cliu^etrs avenue to about 250 people, all the store room would hold. His reinarlvs are intorcslliig at Ibis lime ooniing as they do from a sound money Democrat: "Tlie bullion value of our staudanl .silver dollar," said he, (1 Ls bet.-wi.-cn 50 and 00 cent". Ltt us rail it 50 c-ciirs, to l)e brief. Now, its -iiionct'tiry value i.s 300 cents, bex-fi-use the government: of the United Stares .stands behind it ready to it-doom it with a dollar of gold. There is thus a difference of fifty owns between its bullion tind it.s .monetary value. When tlie mints are oponod to l'roc coinage of silver the dif- 'foi'onco between this monetary value and buliiim value must-- be wiped out, for the owner of silver bullion would not sell it for fifty cents when he could •walk to the mint and have it coined Into a dollar.. Those two values must meet; eit.lii.T il.s bullion value nuist rise to 100 coins or lie! monetary value, Its pur- .fbn.sing power, -nnwt came down to llfry cents, or Clio one m-ust rise aud the other fall until they meet. I. have here a Mexican dollar, which contains 41.S grains of silver, or more tlinu our sr.-iinl.-m] dollar of 412 grains. Yet: you can take our half dollar'and piircli.-iso t.h.'s Mexican dollar. The Mexican dollar, not being redeemable i-n go-id, is worth sim-ply ib? bullion value, and no more. Its purchasing power i.s but half that of our dollars, aud the moment our sliver becomes our money of final redemption it is apt to go to the same level. But our free silver friends say that it will pay a. dollar of debt That as true, but if we are to 'start .out on that theory why not gn still further and liavo Congress pass a law declaring 10 cents ou the' dollar legal temli.T for a debt. It mlghr. oven let those of us who are unable to pay 10 cent's on the dollar out altogether. One proposition contains just as much honesty as Uic other. ''Now, would the bill 1(011 price of silver rise up to 100 cents for the bullion in our standard dollar, or would the monetary value, tlit- 1 purchasing powc of the dojJai* fall? This depends upoi the supply . ami demand. Our silvei friends dale the ducl-lne in the price o .stiver from 1873, and hold the law of that year responsible for it.

A good crowd was Jn attendance at the second night's entertainment,, and lt> was thoroughly enjoyed. . 1702 to 1S73 we coined altogether ouly SS,000,000 of standard dollars and ?135,000,000 of subsidiary silver—$143,000,000 all told. In 1874 we coined over $(1,000,000 In 1S75 over $11,000,000 in 3870 over $24,000,000,.and in 1877 ovei .1.28,000,000 of trad*; dollars. Our mints were not closed to silver, but we wore using more than-ever before. From 1878 to 1890, under the Bland-Allison act,- wo coined $25,000,0.00 a year, con snining 1 . over $-100,000,000 of silver during -that period. From" 1800 to 1893, under the Sherman- purchase l:iw, we purchased more than we eould consume at the rate of 54,000,000 ounces a year. And let me say that It was just here that I changed my views. I had believed that If we should consume all •the. product of the American mines we could cause -a rise in silver that would bring It up to a parity with gold. But when -the bullion speculators got through with their deal on this measure the price of silver went down and down. Time in twenty-three years we consumed or absorbed over .fCOO.OOO,- 000-of-silver, and when .we had done this- : the price was -lower than ever. Thus the creation of a fictitious demand for it would not raise the price for any lengtih of time. "Two causes have served to drive down- the 'price of silver. Tlio first of these is- the Increased production brought about by new processes of mining and refining. Whereas in 1S73 i.;ie world produced $240,000,000. Its production has been so greatly cheapened that the profit; of mining it, even at present prices, is something enormous. The second cause lies in the fact that, beginning with Norway, Sweden and Denmark in 1S72, eleven of the most powerful nations of Uie world have ceased to coin or consume silver for monetary purposes. With this tremendous cutting down of the de- m.-uid and this great increase in the supply of silver, <lo you think -that we alone can hold up its price when we open our mints anil say we win not. redeem it iu gold? "The price of silver bullion would not rise, but the monetary value of our dollar would fall. Its purchasing power would be one-half less, or, to express it differently, everything you have 1.0 buy would be twice as high. Wages wouW not rise -proportion. 1 ! t:e!y, I do not have fo tell you that. You would have fo work two days to buy the same things that one day's labor now pur- ehas-frs. Would money be more plentiful? Not a bit of it. The moment you jnalce the coinage of silver free for the owners of silver bullion that moment: you cause the disappearance of the 9000,000.000 of gold now in circulation, more than you could supply the place of liy keeping- the mints busy coining silver for fifteen years. The man who has gold Js not going to part with It when he can buy the snnie thing with cheaper money. Why, yon would be surprised to know how much' gold is hoarded and hidden In this city now because Li's owners know that, come what may, that gold is always worth its full value, The cheaper money always drives out the dearer, aud the very threat that our government may open its minis to silver lias sent most of our gold inlo 3).idi.Dg. We have a total circulation of about 91,000.000,000 Drive out gold and you lia.ve at ouoe caused a contraction of one-third in our circulation. Then the depreciated value of the silver dollar the moment the gold prop is taken from under it. dragging down with it the paper dollar as well, would amount to a. contraction of another third, to say nothing of the enormous contraction of .credits that would at once be brought about." Mr. Byiumi's points told with his hearers, and he -was frcQnenUy applauded, while lie was more frequently encouraged with cries of "That's right 1 ' and "That's true." W. S.

If It required an annual outlay of ?100,000 to insure a family against any serious consequences from an attack of bowel complaint during the year there are many who would feel it their duty to pay it; that they could not afford to risk their lives, aud those of their family for such an amount. Any one eau get this insurance for 25 cents, that being the price of a bottle of Cnainlier- !aln's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
