Why Can't the Government Issue Certificates on Wheat? Thus a Bushel of Wheat Stored Would Pass for a Dollar, A SI. .'lo-sopli county farmer lias hit upon a plan \vhi-i-.li. he thinks is just ami equitable and which will ptrt him and his fellow producers of grain an on equal fiArtini; with the 1 s'rlyer barmi,;.. lie says' hi a letter lo the t-dii.or of the South Bund Tribune: -The five silver parly is clamoring for a boon for their eUemts, the producers of silver, by making Ci.°. ceut.s' worth of silver worth $.1.

Let the government weigh, and inspect tliis wheat, put it iu. bushel sacks and seal it ajul put the government stamp Oil it. "TW^ 'W « nu dollar." and Issue certillcatis to be used as a circulating medium. "Now, we cannot see why the government should not give us the same rights or benefits as the silver producers, nor why the free silver party should be so blinded by t.he silver king* oC the west •Hi the boy orator of the Platto lo the detriment of us farmers. As the price of a bushel of wheat arid the price of tbe silver bullion La a silver dollar are prac-Mcally the same, we farmers do not consider ourselves rash when we ask the governmomt to enhance the price ot our product if they enb:uice the product of tlie silver iwlue owners.

MAKE BUT ONE SPEECH. Wm..E. Curtis, the veteran journalist, Bays: "I have followed Oliver P. Morton and John Sherman, Gen. Logan and other famous campaigners week after week ami heard tbe same speeches over and over again until I could almost repeat them. Back in the campaign of . 3STO I was making a tour of the west with Oliver P. Morton and George Sheridan, one of the brightest speakers the American platform lias ever known, who accompanied him to do the "funny business." Senator Morton would ueu- aJly talk for an honr-a dull, turgid, heavy discussion of the financial, problem, followed by an attack upon the Democrats of the south for their in-, •human treatment of tiie negro. By the time he had finished the audience would bo soaked with wise advice and valuable infonmiitiioii. but every, spark of enthusiasm would be quenched. Then George Sheridan would take the platform and wake them up. For an hour they would roar with laughter or sit with'their mouths open, fascinated by his flights of fancy. It was a rare combination." Indlauians do not agree with Mr. Curtis that Oliver P. Morton's orations were "dull, heavy, turgid discussions."
