"While nearly, two-thirds of the pensioners .ore women ana children, who can exercise no direct influence upon the ballot, they have all a_,, interest that the pension fund shall not be shriveled up by a debased and depreciated currency. Every pensioner who shall vote for the free silver presidential candidate will vote not only against himself, but to defraud the widows and children of his .deceased comrades. No intelligent veteran has need of any .more experience concerning the effect of depreciated legal tender cur- m Arency. • When gold rose to a premium ' during the' war, and the greenback fell .to less than 50 cents on the dollar, tho soldier's pay of $18 a month lost more than, half its purchasing power. The soldiers and their families were compelled to pay more than twice as much for all they consumed as they paid when the greenback-was at par with gold.- Bills have frequently been .introduced in congress to •compensate .the veterans for their heavy-losses in a depreciated currency; but there would be no such' bills, and -.'no- justification for them, if -their pensions -Bhould-'Shrink• -to -half their present worth .under, the inevitable .operation of free silver, coinage.

Nations perish or do- fault, but,the,right of property .endures forever. Paper loses value by default, but gold and silver do not. Gold has a higher value for money purposes 'than silver because it is more compact in weight .and'presents less jnr- foce for loss by we>r. For several centuries before tho United .'States govern- Aleut was organized, one pound of golc equaled in value from 14 to something over 16 pounds of silver. It was in this ratio more deflirable in the arts and as money.' 'A change ,of ratio: of 14 to 10, or vice-versa, is enough to give one or the other 15 per cent more value. American coins were first molded in the ratio of 18 to 1. There .was only l-10th of, 1 difference between 15. to 1 and the market ratio, but it was enough to set the cheaper money to^work to drive out the dearer. The dearer money in this instance was silver, and it disap peared from circulation. The silver dollar was worth more as bullion than as coin. There have been periods in American history when gold was the dearermoney of. the two, but for nearly nine tenths of tho, time previous to 1879,. silver was. the dearer money, aud kept out of circulation. This'was on account of a stiff legal or mint ratio, with free and u a limited coinage. It was impossible to float' both metals at once, with -full legal tender power. There was therefore no true bimetallism. , • The Republican party, adopted a law providing for .specie payment, and a, policy of .freely exchanging gold for silver. It was neccessary in order to accomplish this-to limit the number of silver dollars coined, but the purchasing power:of the silver : "dollar of our daddies" was preserved;by retaining the time .honored ratio of 1884 at the mints. This 'floated all the silver possible at a par with gold.and gave the country .true bimetallism. Herein may be seen the difference between Republican and Democratic statesmanship^ You can toll, them by their works. The Republican party never was au enemy to silver nor partial.to ; gpld.. , - •'• . r Xhe free exchange; of .gold and silver, dollar for dollar, at the mints .of the United States is based 'on a policy and not a law. 'A law requiring payments to gold-instead of coin would make'gold the-only ; legal tender, and establish!gold monometallism. ; The Republican party prevents this.by founding; the.practice of the country, upon .a policy, to exchange, gold .for silver at the will, of the holder, and'to pay pbligatipns hi coin.,,.
