rf m?p •^H-^flVv ^ n t. r. Feb. 17.—SenatOT Cfefiivtllwr'8 »peeeh in tb»-senate Tuesday in advocacy of bimetallism was on* of the notable efforts of the presets! session. The early part of the tpeecti was a presentation of the principles? of finance, the senator arguing SRsitsst a single standard of cither m«tal—stifer-'of; goia; He ifBeM.'tfie gradual demonetization of silver, the closing of our mints against the silver dollar in 73, the efforts to restore silver and the serious blow struck by England against silver in closing the Indian mints' But it remained for Secretary Carlisle, the senator declared, to strike the most fatal blow at .silver In issuing Jiis order that the government w,ould redeem its paper obligations in gold only. By that act Secretary Carlisle etruck out of use a vast amount of silver and drew on the_de- the final blow to silver. From the effects of this lo.w depth to which it has been reduced by the demonetization of silver, bimetallism must now begin its toilsome struggle upward. Mr, Chandler took up the fall of prices—particularly In farm products— "resulting from silver demonetization. The senator declared that within the last twenty years there had been a steady fall of prices of all classes of property. His own convictions, that silver demonetization was at the bottom, of this downward movement.'.In prices, caused him to seriously doubt whether the era of restored prosperity was near at hand. He was led to the' conclusion, he said, that prices had not, yet "touched bottom." This shrinkage In prices had been most'serioua since 1890, The value of property in the United States waa *.,'t <-rjlj ll* W {;•".? (>f '^-tfn^ r ,-; h"-,n a r ?*»r-^n* *!•{>,* ft>?

Deducting them, the value of our property was cut down to $33,000,000,000. Can this proceed, asked the senator, -without widespread bankruptcy? He was of the opinion that the gradual tendency was to leave debtors without the power of paying • their, debts until by a gradual revolu- Mion the assets of the debtors were ab-r j jsorbed by creditors. If it had not been for the fortunate 1 ^balance of trade in <our favor during the last year, he said, there would have 1 been abusinesscataclysm In this country which would have prostrated all in-. - terests and produced infinite misery in •our business and domestic affairs.

He said the government's first duty should be the protection, of the citizen against the oppression of corporations, He strongly indorsed the 'scheme of establishing co-operative' unions in various states to assist the wealth producers in disposing of their products and to overcome "the stagnation in business caused by the present system of a contracted currency," .and urged that the council further and- promote thesa, enterprises.
