Comptroller Eckels Says the Silver- ites Must Be Defeated. Gives His Views of the Present Status of the Money Question at • Detroit Dedication. DETBOIT, Mich., May 3.—Detroit's chamber of commerce was formally dedicated at noon Thursday when contractor Benjamin Hyde, of Chicago, turned over the keys to President Rufus Vf. Gillett. To celebrate the dedication a banquet was given in the Hotel Cadillac dining room in the evening. Many distinguished guesta from the state were present and occupied seats at the tables. The speakers were Chauncey M. Depew, Comptroller Eckels, Hon. W. C. Maybury, of Detroit, Hon. H. D. Goulder, of Cleveland. The Comptroller'! Addresn. Mr. Eckels, who responded to the toast "The Currency," confined his remarks to that single phase of the question which to-day engages public thought. His address briefly summarized was as follows: A Vital Point Ko»chod. I believe \vc havo come to a point in this dis- cuBSlon or our monetary system and agitation for a complete change in our standard of value ivhon tnia mass of opinion should not only 1)6 aroused but should make Itself an active forco in putting an end to the currency vagarios of -which the free silver movement as to-day presented Is the culmination. If commercial and Industrial revival Is to continue, recurring loss to every citizen prevented, national and Individual financial credit and. integrity maintained and ultimate disaster averted there must bo no longer a spirit of hesitation in those who know the baneful effects of the thing proposed. There can bo no political ends to bo served, no party considerations to be advanced of suflicient import to warrant any mun in long debating as to tho position he should taltc when the financial honor of his country is at -stake and the prosperity of a t'roat people threatened; Hero, at least, Is no room for party and no place for tho machinations of designing politicians or arrant demagogues. Free Silver Propaganda. Tho American people, he declared, cannot too Quloltly recognize that* they aro in tho midst ofa propaganda, skillfully and zealously bolag oarrlod on with tho end in ylow of revolutionizing the country's existing monetary system. Those who now direct the free silver idea, map out tho policy of Its advocates nnd control their action, have censed playing with words and put from them the professions which heretofore) havo characterized their utterances when urging the cause for which they have stood. Tholi- dumand to-day Interpreted in the light or tholr acts, Ls that the United States shall at onco abandon its present standard of value und substitute therefor, Irrespective und without the cooperation of any other country, ii single silver standard. Xowuore Is it suggested by tho sponsors for this latest tenet in the silver crood that this nation shall even undortako to maintain at homo a double standard. Nowhere Is the pvomlso given of an attempt through International agreement to make every dollar of silver which shall be coined the eo.u,il In value of every dollar of gold which comes Irom every mint und is fairly Intorchojigeublo therewith. They uo longer give recognition to tho fact, attested by every monetary union formed and conference held, thai no nation can isolate HseU from those with which It has commercial dealings and maintain. Independent of them, a distinctive standard o! value. It is not oven designed that the dollar coined shall approach in intrinsic value tho value which it purports to carry, but Instead a ratio shall exist between coins of the same denomination which Is patently incorrect and untrue. The position which they now assume, of necessity eliminates from their ranlts all who heretofore have struggled to bring about a larger use of silver In tho country's currency at an Increased ratio and drives Into the camp of the opposition every honor, champion of international bimetallism. Tho plan laid Is of their own mailing; the Issue of their own choosing, and In tho face ol their acts the believer In the single gold standard, and the believer In a standard of both, gold and sliver should give thorn neither aid nor succor, Thoy challenge the one and repudiate the other, and from both should come b united opposition. Silver HHtl.im, Foro aud Simple. Tho contontlon which Is now made Dy tho single silver &t::ndnrd adherents reduced to Its lust analysis is sliver llatism, pure and simple. It differs in degree only, and not in principle, from the contention of twenty years ago o: the advocate of tho .unlimited Issue of Irredeemable greenbacks, and from that of the Issue of the flat currency of tho period of the contlnenra.1 congress and tho eraof colonialism. It is tho theory of the socialist and populist applied to monetary science. It is based upon. the belief In what has "been aptly termed -the all powerfuihess" of the state and is In utter disregard ot that-great fact In financial history that mediums of exchange and standards of value did • not flncl their origin in law, but were born of the needs of .trade and commerce. They came into use through no legislative action .savo. that which was wrought In the treat parliament of commerce, and from then until now the eu- acted laws of councils and congresses In violation ot the principles' underlying . them lave toiled to control und regulate them. Tho end always' sought by commerce, the great arbiter ol every monetary system slnco the dawn ot civilization, has seen to have In every metallic money such intrinsic value as makes tho unstamped coin of iie same value as n commodity of merchandise as the stamped. It a»s with equal rigor Insisted that In back currency there shall be micediiito redemption upon presentation In sound metallic currency. It Invokes in behalf of the money which It sanctions and as- cepts co alchemist and believes In no phlloso- iher'sstons. It ha», throughout .all the cea- ,urles, stood defiant against the errors of legla- atlve bodies and the wrongful edicts of kings; and acting upon the principle that '-value mows Its own l»ws and follows them n spite of decrees and penalties," ha*, aken tine coins of every country tor what they are 1 intrinsically worta and not for what the legal stamp represents hem to be worth. The commercial world has with unvarying precision drawn the true dis- inctlon which exists between trua value in a nation's currency and the si^n of value affixed o It. and standing upon that line of. demarca- lon It has been H indifferent to tbe laws of Teat notions *a of small. Mait li« FernuuiMitlj D*f»t«<l. Tne question to which the friends of me maintenance of a medium of exchange of no- j inBitioa<>d and uno.ue»Uoo»bl« ralue mutt •£•' dress themselves" Is not how to temper arily defeat the advocates of fre coinage of silver, as they now presen It, but how to permanently Insur the country agulast the danger which woul flow irom crystallizing into law any monetary suggestion which Is based In whole or in par upon the doctrine of Hatlsm. Suchresult can not be attained by either scoftliw: at thei: leaders or under-estimating the source: ot strength of those who range them' solves under their banners. The force: "ol flat silver currency, of irrcdecmabli paper and their popullstlc allies can be permanently eradicated as factors worthy of con sideratlon and sources of discontentand flnan clal loss In but one way. and that lies through the gateway of sound monetary education. STRIKE MAY BE GENERAL. Ironirorbor* In Pennsylvania Proparlnc to n United PTTTSBL-KGH, Pa., May 3.—As a result of the lockout Thursday nig-ht of amalgamated association members employed in the Sligo and Lockhart iron works, it was disclosed Friday that the movement is but the inaugura tion of a plan of. the officers of the Amalgamated association to not only demand a general increase in tho wage scale and the recognition of their organization in every important iron and steel manufactory in the Pittsburgh district.

Several coal cars are reported' burned at dif- erent points along the line. -About 100 colored miners' from the Elk Horn region came ' to this city Thursday aight on a freight train and started east by foot, claiming they were going to the mines on New river. Some think they aro lurking in this locality with a .view to destroying prop• erty. A Catling gun was sent the •Blueflelds militia Eriday morning, ' COLUMBUS, 0., May 3.—Another national coal miners' strike seems probable now. Tho Ohio Coal Miners' convention.

It is understood, that the Pittsburgh miners will at once demand 79 cents per ton, which is the usual differential for that district. SIX BANDITS KILLED.
