Tiiji relief ant' pent i»..?ortli ft hundred iisies thf to; NO HELP TOTHOSE MORTGAGED Tree Silver u Uiirdshlp. Not n Relief, to Mont of Them. People owning 1 their homos und hav-; ing mortgages upon them should not be misled into thinking Unit a. luce bUvur victory in Kovcniber would be ol nssis-tar.ee to them in meeting their mortgages. A little examination will show that on the average it will bring hardship instead of relief. This would be true, leaving out of consideration nil circumstances affecting wages and- incomes and confining the argument simplv to a bare discussion of the mortgage itself. The great majority of mortgages, especially the smaller ones on dwelling houses, are written for three or live years, and of this class the greater number for the lesser period, while many run for a yenr.or two. During the last few years a great niany oil these mortgages have contained a gold clause. It is obvious that no one having such a mortgage on his house would be helped in the slightest by free silver. It is equally plain that, on the contrary, were gold nt a premium, it would be harder than ever to make a payment. it might also be remembered that <hore are always, especially during hard times, a large number of mort- gaes, especially on small houses, that lire overdue, nnd are being carried along by the mortgagee. Bearing those facts in miud it seems safe, to assume that the average life of mortgages on this class of property in this city and its suburbs does not exceed one year. For free silver to bo of advantage to the mortgagcor money must be more plentiful nnd more- easily obtained within that time thiui it is to-day. Is there nriy reason to believe it would be? ' Hvcn without n special session of congress, called as soon as possible to pass a free silver law, such :i law could not reasonably be looked for within that period, much less an inflation of the currency, so as to give relief to debtors. In the meantime what would be the situation? The crisis in financial affairs would follow Immediately upon the success of free, silver nt the polls. Followingthe withdrawn! of gold there would be a sharp contraction of the money in circulation, and, instead of more money with which to meet indebtedness, there would be less. Owing to the unsettled condition of affairs lenders would be more unwilling than ever to loan, and, as nti inevitable result, payments would have to be defaulted. There is still another point. In the very great majority of eases mort- gagees do not willingly foreclose. Thev want their money-and interest rather than the. property. This is especially true of -the savings and cooperative banks. As n result they often ca-rry mortgages that are due until such atirneasthcownercan-mectthem. But if they saw that they would receive at some'future time, an amount less than its value in gold, nnd only such a payment could be of benefit to the borrower, they would demand a settlement at once, and, if that was not forthcoming, they would foreclose. And foreclosure in a panic means the wiping out of equities. In the above statement no allowance Is made for loss of earning power on the part of the home owner. It is assumed, for the sake of argument, that, he will have as much-money as he has now. Even on such a showing free- silver to the great majority would not be a help but an injury.—Boston Herald.

He is giving the -farmers of Chautauqua the benefit of the inflated: prices which the advocates of a 50.:cent'dollar desire and is doing it without asking the United States.gov- ernment to become a repudiator and a swindler. . . . • • Parobaslng Po'wor of Cheap Money. Maj, Sanders, of Louisville, who served In the confedesa,te'army, recalls tha.t in January, 1365, he tried to buy a. handkerchief i-n-Mcridian,.'Miss., but found he could hot afford it, the price (in oon- ledomtb money) having been $300, and as n compromise he bought a paper collar for $123. With gentlemen to whom collars and handkerchiefs are (^superfluity such object lessons-from tne'past will have very little weight. The marvel is that the inflation, cnwe should have got such a hold -upon the people of the south, where the bitter experience with 'confederate money enouM havo'lasted for'the present generation at least,— Philadelphia Record; ' ' ' Condition! Prior to 1873. Some: of the'•free coinage men still Bay ttiat''«fli !

'Will' the silver : miners'Testore the production of 1873 oa the first step toward "restoring 1 th« conditions?" WOULD HURT INSTEAD OF HELP. now Trco Colnajro WonlU Injur* the Farmers. The chief strength of i the sixteen to one ngitation lies in the belief that it would benefit the agricultural classes. This is a serious error.. The facts ol all human experience sbW conclusively that free silver would cause widespread and prolonged injury to the farmers of this country! The mere threat of free'coinage would greatly injure the farmers by. causing an immediate calling in of all loans through the natural desire of lenders to get back money worth as much as they lent. Hundreds of thousands of farmers would be unable to pay their mortgages, nud their farm's would be sold nt a sacrifice. No new loans would be forthcoming, ae the owners of capital would not invest so long ns there was any danger that by a change in the money standard the value of loans would be cut in two. As the chief complaint of the farmers now is that interest is too high and capital too scarce, the effect of a policy which would malvc capital scarcer and dearer can be figured out by. each farmer for himself. A second way in. which free coinage would hurt agriculture would be by tho financial panic which would inevitably follow the overthrow of our present Round financial system and the adoption of the unstable cheap silver standard. With the millions of bank depositors demanding their savings, themachinery of credits, by which so large a part of the country's business is done, would be suddenly stopped. Merchants would be "unable to buy goods for lack of credit: manufacturing industries -would be closed clown,, ns in 1S03, and million.'; of workers would be idle. .Men out ol employment do not buy ns much farm products as when they are at work, nnd the farmers who now complain of tha lack of markets for-tln'ir produce would find themselves with a large part of their crops unsold. Would not this be n serious injury to agriculture? Another evil which f rc-e coinage would bring to American farmers would be the 'unseltlement of their trade rel;i- tions with the great gold standard commercial nations, which purchase each rear SCO0.000,000 worth of'cur surplus farm products. The adoption of the silver standard, with its constantly fluctuating scale, of pricrs. would prove the same barrier to commerce between this nnd other countries that it h:is to trnds between £fold standard TCurope and India, Chin.-i. nnd .Tap:>n. Do the farmers want to curtail rind ursettle our foreign trade? These, are some of the ways in which free comas? nt sixteen to one would hurt the farmers. >"o advocate of recent dollars has over born able to show .a single way in' which it. would help them. THINK IT OVER. Some Points for Farmer* to Curnfally Consider. Farmers who think that free silver will help them to get rid of their mortgages should consider carefully what effect a sixteen-to-one law will have 011 tho lenders of capital. The silverites ore telling you beautiful stories about the great volume of money which will be ready for loaning at low rates of interest as soon as we adopt the silver standard. But suppose the scheme should not work in the way they expect? Suppose that as soon as it becomes likely that a frce-coi-nago law will be enacted there is a general demand that all mortgages should at once be paid in full? The promise of cheap money when free silver comes won't halp you now. Where are you going to get the money to pay off your mortgage? Do you suppose any man is going to make loans while there is a, possibility of his being repaid in 50-ccn.t dollars? And if you can't raise the money when it is called for, ant) if your farm is sold at a sacrifice, where will you be then? Think these, things over. Don't bo fooled by the free-silver idea that cheap money means lowrates of interest. Tho facts are just the other way. Interest Is far higher in all silver-using countries than in gold countries. If we go on the silver standard the men. who have capital to lend will charge more interest than they dp now in order to cover the risk of being repaid in depreeiated.sil- ver dollars. So, if you succeed in borrowing under free coinage you will pay higher interest on the'loan. Ask anybody who knows the facts whether Interest is not much higher in Mexico, India or the silixir South American' countries than in the United. States, England or Germany, .with-'their currency based on gold. Then make, up your mind • that ypu-iyill vote foe th* financial system Which if lerft undisturbed will benefit you far more than freesilver will. One Neglected Detail.

A LESSON FROM EGYPT. ThatCtantryKiiilud coUaintatn LUC Kiitl* of Six£oo!i O:i!o'.ia to One Oir-i The undent. Egyptians had a currency based on c.-.its und onions, both of which were sucred objects worshiped "by the people. As there was some difficulty in .storing the c-.'.s, and as the onion was liable to decay, a circulating medium was provided ol' papyrus strips, rcureseatins a ccmiii number of tots and onious at a rasio of sixteen to one. This v,-::s a, true ilouble standard system aud is believed t.o have been the origin. o[ modern paper currency. For a time the (.-nt-onion money circulated a.t, par, but the historian Faque Ifur records that about OGl'i li, C. a serious difficulty arose. New colonies had been established in the region of the upper Xile, a-.ul the L-avagc Nubians had been taught, the art, of agriculture. The rich, black soil of •the valley which -.bey inhabited was especially suited to the growth of onions, and the production of those perfumed bulbs was soon enormously increased. Meanwhile the cat crop had only grown in the usual ratio, and the resiilt was that, with the dcrnnnd for sacred animals in the new colonies, at least HO onions would be given for one cat. This brought the papyrus currency into disfavor, and the ruling pharaoli, Ham Bunkshus III., issued a royal order that cats should be the sole standard of value, and that onions should be issued only to the extent that they could be kept at par with the "eatcrwatilers." as the unit of value was termed. This did not suit the onion growers, who at once started an agitation for the free and unlimited coinage of all onions at the good old ratio of their daddies. After passing 3.1S7.C42 resolutions denouncing the horrible crime of 003 the onionites marched in a body to the palace of their pbarcioh and demanded that the unjust law enacted at the instance of the catbugs should be repealed and the bicatallic standard restored. Ham Bunkshus listened to them patiently and answered: "Great, no doubt, was the wisdom of our ancestors. But I am in the wisdom business myself to some extent. When the ratio of sixteen to one was adopted, that was the true ratio of the cat and Onions. Ifow, owing to n great increase in the quantity of onions, the ratio is thirty to one. All powerful as I am, I can-not make/inionsworth more thon their market value. The. present standard stnys. As for you, O foolish onion.ites, your lenders shall feed the sacred crocodiles. The rest of yon will re-turn to your farms and hustle. I have remarked." Thus ended the first and only currency agitation ia. Egypt.—\Vbidden Graham, in Puck. Local llntlos Cannot Fix Valnon- While the advocates of free coinage- arc loudly asserting the power of the government to raise the bullion value of silver from thirty toone to sixteen to one of gold they at the same time pub- 1'sh facts which prove the very reverse of tlieir claim. Thus they boast that for tho 20 years previous to 1S73, the. year of'the alleged crim-,'the vnlue'ef silver bullion rcu.igcd from three to 'seveu cents per ounce above, its.coinage value —in 'Other words, the silver in a "dollar" coin was worth'three or four cents more than a dollar. Now the preachers of prosperity, thrpugh.lc'gislationsayfba.t it is the law that fixes the. valws of the money me to Is, and that, if the United States alone opened its mints for the free coinage of silver at sixteen io'ons the commercial -value of'gold would.bo exactly 10 times that of silver. That their assertion is not true, and that the bullion value of either metal cannot.be. fixed by law, is clearly shown by the ffcots given above in regard to the complete failure of preykJtis frce-coinag'; laws to keep the real'value of silver ata rntio of sixteen to one of go'd. Government .Ownership of Silver Mine*. Why is it'tliat both the populists and i.he democrats' failed to put a plank in their platforms demanding that. the government -own. and control the silver mines of this country, so that the profit which would be made from free coiu- ..-.G-e would go to our government, and tlnisjndircetly be a bciiefitto the.whole people? . Why should this profit go to a few individuals who own the silver .mines nnd who are already enormously rich ? Is not this building up one of the Jnost dang-eraus trusts that the country has even seen ? Think of.a few men having under their control.all the silver oi this con n't rty 'and the government'com' polled to turn it info dollars as fastfw they pro'd'nce it! Suppose that these si!' ver men combine.to shutdown work OR their mines when they:want to produce a stringency in the money .market, then .open thc'in' again 'whon they want, to ' make money'abundant. Would not this put the whole business of the county'at their mercy? ' ' "More money !!'-is : the dalusivc cry of "the.silverites.'in t.heircarapaign. for cheap dollars.
