Minneapolis Tribune: " On my way through Chicago," said Eli Perkins^ who went through St. Paul to the Pacific coast on the Northern Pacific yesterday, " I stepped into Prof. Coin's school. The little man has been teaching a financial school in Chicago for a year. His teachings have finally been published in book form, but I could never understand what he was driving at." "Did you find oat?" asked the Tribune. "Yes," said Eli, "I asked Coin I point blank if he was for free coin- " 'And our government has bought ani coined $419,000,000 Worth of silver UliMnfr tlinf. timn hnhn'f. tt.V during that time, hasn't itV i{ "Yes—prosperous all the time.' " 'Then after this prosperous government changed, the democrats came in, HOW much silver did We buy?' " 'Why, only 87.000,000,' said Coin. " 'And do you think that pitiful little $7,000,000 which the government coined into $14,000,000 brought hard times when the buying and coining of $419,000,000 made the nation prosper- duS;all the time?' . " J '0h, dear, no!' said Coin, 'that's preposterous.' , " '.Then what did make the hard times? what made the English rush to get our gold?' "Coin was silent again. " 'I'll tell you, Coin,' I said. What made the British pounce upon our gold? At the money convention at Brussels nit the civilized nations de Glared against free coinage, but each nation agreed to stand by its owi coined silver and keep it as good as gold.' •• 'Did they do it?' asked Coin. " 'Why, yes—everyone of them, but of our. idiots crawfished. They S 1^^^ J^^ J^^^F ^^^ it S EED TIME is here; you will want good, reliable Seeds for planting, We handle.... .

"Do you mean by free coinage that you waut men or governments to go on coining silver dollars as they do in China, Mexico, Japan and Asia, not , guaranteed by gold, where these dollars are only worth 47 cents—the same I as bullion?" ' ,' >' 'No,' said Coin, 'I don't want that. j We may as well have bullion. Such money when coined is worth no ' more than common bar silver. That wouldn't change matters.' " 'Then you want it fixed so that I any man can take 47 cents, worth of . . said we \vill pay our bonds in debased silver dollars worth 47 cents. We will repudiate. Of course, our government couldn't do that, but the English got frightened. They rushed our bonds in and demanded gold while thev could get it. Do you blame them?' " 'No,' said Coin, 'they simply got frightened. I don't blame them.' " 'Now, Coin,' I continued, 'our Iowa Seeds, from Riish Park. ALL NEW AND FRESH- BULK OR PACKAGES. , , coined silver is all right.

'I have talked and befuddled the people. I have Jed the people blindly into the ditch. I have tried to teach .What I did not know, and now I will,close my school and go away and think.'.
