BLAlJfE»8 1878 SPBlECtl. The Courier repeats its one paragraph from the speech on silver made by Jas. G, Elaine In congress in 1878, but does not accept the offer made last week to furnish it some further portions of the same speech. This seems io us a Very unfair use of Bliiine's .name, There is no reason why if it is to be Involved in the present campaign a full and fair statement of what he advocated should not be given. Blatne was, when he made that -speech, as a matter of record, opposing the Bland free coinage bill, exactly the bill the Courier now endorses, Blaine was advocating a dollar that should have more silver in it than the old dollar, enough more to make it equal in value ytlih gold, The stiver dollar had in 1878 /alien to 02 cents, and he wanted the eight cents'worth of silver added. In giving his reason* he vigorously opposed every argument now advanced for free coinage. Here is one sentence: " If I were to venture on a dictum on the silver question, I should declare that until Europe remouetizes silver we cannot afford .to coin a dollar as low as 412}£ grains." / Here is another: " If we coin a stiver dollar of full legal tender, obviously below the current of value of the gold dollar, we are simply open ing our doors and inviting Europe to take our gold. With our gold flowing out from us, we shall be forced to the single silver standard and our relations with the leading commercial countries of the world will be :not only embarrassed, but crippled." What could be stronger than that in opposition to Bryanism? When he discussed remonetizing at the old ratio, he said again: " To remonetize it now as though the essential conditions had not changed, is willfully and blindly to deceive ourselves. If ,our demonetization were the only cause for the decline in the value of silver,, then re- xnonetization would be its proper and effectual cure. But other causes, beyond our control, have been far more potentially operative than the simple fact that congress prohibited its further coinage. As legislators we are bound to take cognizance of these causes. The demonetization of silver in the German empire and thecon:equent partial, or well nigh complete, suspension of coinage in the governments of the Latin Union, have been the leading causes for the rapid decline in the value of silver." What Blaine said about the disastrous folly of demonetizing silver in 3878 has been said over and over again, and in other, but not less direct terms, by Senator Allison in his letter. of two weeks ago. It expresses the sentiments of nine-tenths of the American people. But it is manifestly unfair and misleading to use such expressions, separate from the context, to bolster up free coinage, when the whole purpose of the speakers and writers has been to ehow that free coinage would not remedy the evil. The money question is one to be .studied fairly, and is of tremendous importance. The Courier cannot afford to mislead its readers by garbled quotations. If it can find speeches made by republicons in favor of free coinage, they are entitled to be heard and to be considered candidly. But paragraphs from speeches made to oppose free coinage are very unfairly used, when an impression is given out with them that they are an endorsement of free coinage. doW» itt ISH either 1 diBn<Jfoe B liy> 61- sflf- refltitiotiBly, But the record proves that tfiere is fid foundation for Siich belief, fhe feeofd pfOves that the change was made wlthbut afiybody giv- Iflg much attention to it, and that Was only aftefit Was dobe arid after the silver producer began to meet a declining maf'ket, that ib6 people suddenly &woketo the consciousness that the cbfcnge was much mOr« fat*re&(!hing in its effect than anyone had anticipated. TttE tfPJWEfc BBS MOINJSS codld till its columns with statements from the leading students of monetary science of the World, all id agreement upon the one point that the general demonetiza- tion of silver wag a mistake. It has been admitted by the men who had moat to do with bringing it about. No ohe foresaw the result, and no one seems to have given much study to the real question that was, involved—at least the discussions all seem to have been on minor matters, like getting a common coin, etc. But all this does hot change the fact that demonetiza- tion came about naturally, in the regular order, and by a common action on the part of the leading nations, and that sufficient warning was given to everybody, both as to what was proposed and as to what was done. Wiifth is pnbltstHfd by the Cedftf- * Republicnn. He says: 1 do not. let) much DAB of another democratic ticket for Iowa. It takes a great deal of time, work, energy and money to maintain a nttional organization through a presidential catnpftlgti. t do not want to embark in the enterprise. I am going to Vote for MeKinley anyway. I agree with Gen. Daft Sickles, and shall hot fire a blank cartridge. To make common cause against common dangers seems to me the obvious coui-so dictated by experience and by common sense alike. That was my view in 1801, an'd it is my view now. Bailey answers the Cedar Rapids Gazette. The Gazette Said: "The press correspondent at Poft Dodge has not, yet informed us as to whether 'Dolliver's circus' will have stake drivers, but it is presumed it will not. When Dolllver pets ready tb raise his te'nt he* simply spreads It out oh the ground, crawls under it and begins to talk. Then the tent begins to go Up and keeps on ifoing." Bailey adds! Just so. Dolliver's speeches ate those of a "rising" man. ttis logic is "uplifting;" his rhetorics "soars," his eloquence is "elevating." He "hoists" things; obstacles are sent "skyward." The tent win „ "raises" those, go Up" 'l Ma when" brother Jonathan Try and remember ALLISON'S VIEWS. Senator Allison's confident prediction that an inter-national agreement on a ratio and silver is probable in the near future, has been much discussed by the papers since his letter appeared two weeks ago. Senator C. K. Davis of Minnesota, next to Senator Allison perhaps the best authority on such questions in the west, made the game prediction in his speech in St. Paul last Wednesday. He said: The question is not, whether there should be free and unlimited coinage of silver in the mints of all the nations, by the consent of the principal commercial nations of the globe upon a ratio to be agreed upon. That is not the issue. We all might agree that when this is brought about as it will be, if the United States conducts itself with Judgment.upon this question, I say that we might all agree that that would be an excellent thing. The republican party has pledged itself in successive platforms to labor to bring about international agreement. The most advanced thinkers upon financial questions in both hemispheres are advocating, especially in foreign lands, the ressurrection of the coinage of silver, by united action of nations who, before we did long ago, suspended or limited the further coinage of.silver; but I want to say one thing to you, that not one of these professors in foreign universities, not one of these economists whose name and fame is worldwide, and not one of those great financiers who have given days and years of thought to this subject, not one, and nobody except the leaders of the modern democracy and populism has ventured to advise hi's own country in Europe to undertake that task alone. HOW IT HAPPENED. • The Emmetsburg Democrat says ibat Col, Pumphrey is right in asserting that the United States demonetized Silver without the consent of any foreign power, and that THE UPPER DES JMOINES is wrong. It adds; "If there Is any sepret information con- •«ernJng the decision of the conference of Ig67, the pplpnel would be very glad to fetjpw it, as would millions of his fellow Countrymen, Will THE UPPER, DBS MOJXES let the pat Put of the bag? If it is willing to do so, the Democrat will guarantee that it will not find the polonel sleeping." . In another column we give a sketch the conference of 1807 and of the sub* -ieguent legislation in the United States, drawn chiefly from the official ygport of the conference and from the Official statement of ex'DU-eetor 3£no$ made b,ejpre the coinage commit' tee pi congress in J89J'.

Ames Intellingencer: Mrs. Lizzie McCarthy Poster of Algona arrived in Ames last Friday evening and is spending the week at the home of her parents, Mr, and Mrs, Daniel McCarthy. Harl Peel of SWBH, City received notice of his «Ut.nding in the civil service examination for the railway mail service.

Smith came home from the big Chicago shooting tournament Saturday. It was the biggest yet held. In the match he acted us referee in there were 160 entries. In the big team' shoot the "Iowa Indians," Gilbert, Budd, Grimm, Harry Wilson, and a man from the south part of the state, tied with the Illinois team for first money with a score of 49 out of 50. Mr. Smith shot in another team. In the Du Pont trophy shoot there were 120 entries at $25 each. Gilbert lost two birds, Grimm lost one. The cup went to a Baltimore man, who was so rattled at the last that he shot one shell into the ground before he called "pull." WEBSTEE OITT WINS.

The best story yet is tojd by EJd. Campbell the veteran democrat. He says the Chicago platform reminds- him of the woman who went into a store to buy a dress, She was not suited with the goods shown, her, but drawing a, long breath, "she said: " Well, it doesn't make any difference whether it suits me or not; it's for a corpse." Here }s part of the romance of the campaign; Th,e Ruthven Advance says: "Kossuth county is badly torn up on the issue of the campaign, It has always been the bulwark of the republican party in northwest Iowa, it has changed, and will without question go for silver," If the rest of the free silver campaign is like this, there will be some disappointed sllveyites this fall, The latest report for the Tenth district is as follows: It is understood that Rowans, who" lias achieved distinction as a chattel mortgage capitalist at home, has announced bis intention, 'of pouring thpu.- «ajadiQf dollars into, the campaign, and it is, on ftat the twtoabto »re pinning fl^U- faith, He baj made arrangements to get John L«4 p4 Congressman, Tpwne PJ tote the distrjpt |oi< Company F Conies Out Second the RUle Competition and tlio Cups, In the rifle competition at the Okoboji Fourth regiment camp, Company F came out second. The Webster City boys won both cups, A year ago Webster City held them and Company F won them. Now they go back. The scores were very low with all the teams owing to the range, the heat, etc. Even a good average score would have saved Company F, but the boys "fell down." The camping grounds over on the west side of the lake were • very band- some and the swimming facilities were good, But otherwise the boys do not speak well of them. The facilities for getting baggage over and also for getting edibles were not such as a well regulated camp ought to have, The company came In from the west Saturday noon. Gov, Drake and several militaiy men from the south reviewed them Thursday. They said the Fourth is state. the best regiment in the A Complaint Answered, , The Bancroft Register says a gentleman was heard complaining that the officer who recorded the papers of the late Mr. Lund should have realized that there was something crooked in the business and given the alarm and caused an investigation.

Every German and Italian state had its own coins, and even the Swiss cuntona hud t-ach a coin different from the rest. Travellers and traders alike were bothered by the multiplicity of different coins iu Europe. This conference Was to ngtee upon a plan for wiping but all these c-otna and getting some one coin whose Value was known to all. -t- -t- •*• The United States was represented at the world's fair by Samuel B. Ruggles. When invited to send a delegation to the money conference, to snve expense a commission was sent to Mr. Ruggles and he was instructed to act in that capacity. The correspondence with Secretary Sevvard shows that what was being attempted Was to secure a uniform money unit for the world. Seward wrote: "The importance of a standard unit of equal vaflie in all commercial countries is fully recognized and appreciated." The Marquis Do Mou- stler In opening the conference said: "To substitute instead of the variety of monetary types actually in use metallic coins struck in accordance with uniform regulations, would remove one of the most serious obstacles to the development of inter-national relations." -s- -f- -4- The first proposal discussed in this conference was an entirely new coin unlike any then in use. After a long debate It was decided that the people would not take readily to so radical a change. Then a plan was proposed to harmonize the relations of coins in use and from that the discussion passed to the matter of a standard, whether of gold or silver or pi' both. Mr. Ruggles a.trpngly advocated the dnglogold standard, and it was agreed upon by 19 of the 20 states, Holland voting against. A clause was inserted " leaving each state to keep its silver standard temporarily." The whole debate, however, was with reference to unifying the coins, and Mr. Ruggles proposed an elaborate plan of changing the English sovereign and the American dollar to match with the live franc piece. -T- -j- -i- At the close of the conference Mr. Ruggles reported to Secretary Sevvard: "The establishment of a single standard exclusively of gold is in truth the cardinal if not the all important feature of the plan proposed by the conference, relieving the whole subject by a single stroke of the pen from the perplexity and indeed the impossibility of permanently unifying the multiplicity of silver coins scattered throughout the various nations of "Europe." The whole thing to him was a mere matter, as it was to the others, of getting a convenient metal for a common coin, and the fact that most of the coins complained of were silver, was one of the chief reasons for changing to gold." -f- -5- -T- The report attracted little attention at home because for many years silver had been out of circulation. Only $8,000,000 of silver dollars had been coined all told. Neither gold nor silver was in use by the people, paper money being then the only kind in circulation. Abroad the report occasioned some discussion, but nothing resulted until 1870, when, as a result of the Franco-Prussian war, Germany was to receive $1,000,000,000 from France. This was Germany's opportunity to adopt the new standard, and from this time the actual de- monetization of silver dates. John Sherman reported a measure in Congress in 1808 calculated to carry out the plan reported by Mr. Ruggles. It came to nothing, In 1870 John Jay Knox, director of the mint, reported in favor of dropping the silver .dollar, arguing that it should be changed to a trade dollar for use in China and Japan, of the same weight as the Mexican dollar. His report included an entire revision of the minting laws. There was discussion at that time of a smaller dollar to be equal in weight to the half dollars, and conforming nearly to the French ratio, Secretary Boutwell in his report for the treasury department Dec. 1871, said: "In the last ten years the commercial value of silver has depreciated about three per cent, as compared with gold, and Its use as a currency has been discontinued by Germany and some other countries, The financial condition of the United States has prevented the use of silver as currency for more than ten years and I am of the opinion upon grounds of public polliuy, no attempt shoqld be made to introduce it. * * * Therefore in renewing the recommendations heretofore made for the passage of the mint bill, I suggest such alterations as will prohibit the coinage of silver for circulation In this country, but that authority be given for the coinage of a silver dollar that shall be as valuable af a Mexican dollar." -f- -t- -T- The bill which dropped the silver dollar was introduced in the senate and reported favprably Deo. 19,1870, and Jan, 0, 1871, was passed by a vote of 88 to 14. This bill included the small silver dollar of 884 grains (our present silver dollar has 413K and the trade dollar had 430) but It was for congress attracted but little attention at the time. Later many prominent rten declared that they knew nothing of it, and that when they Voted on the bill they did not understand that silver had been dropped, tt is easy to see that ho especlai interest in the silver dollar should have been taken at the time, and It is perfectly cleat that the dropping of siiver had been openly advocated for yefcfs. The closing of the mints to silver was 6ne of the results of a theoretical plan to get a common money unit, and Wm. D. Kelley complained in his Speech on the bill because the gold dollar was not changed to tnatch the five franc piece, saying: "I would have liked to have made the gold dollar uniform with the French system of Weights, taking the gram as a unit." -*- 4- 4- In the meantime the big Nevada sil ver mines had been developed. The Cornstock lode Was discovered in 1859, the Belcher Bonanza In 1804, the Potosi in 1865, and the Hale and Norcross Bonanza in 186f5, Silver bullion began to go down rapidly, the coined silver of Europe became a load on gold, In 1876 the issue was taken up in earnest in congress, and in 1878 the United States passed the Allison-Bland act providing for the coinage of $2,000,000 of silver a month, and for the calling of another conference to restore bimetallism, -s- -t- •*The 11 years that had elapsed since the conference of 1867 had completely obliterated the talk about Unifying the coinage, When the conference of 1878 met. The evils that had befallen the commercial World through dropping silver were too apparent. What had seemed to be settled by a mere.stroke of the pen, as Mr. Ruggles reported, had not been settled at all. How great the change in the minds of. public men had been was illustrated by John Sherman, then secretary of the treasury. He had been most aetive in urging the demon- etization of silver. He now wrote to the delegates at the 1878 conlerence: "At that time (1867) the wisest among us did not anticipate the sudden fall of silver nor rise of gold that has occurred. * * * The dangerous effect upon industry by dropping one of the precious metals from the standard of value Outweigh in my mind all theoretical objections to the bimetallic system. I am thoroughly convinced that if it were possible for the leading commercial nations to fix by agreement an arbitrary relation between silver and gold, even though the market value might vary somewhat from time to time, it ,would be a measure of greatest good to all nations." THE WEEK'S AOOIDENTS. Michael Riebhoff, son of Jus. Riebhoff, broke his left arm above the wrist by tumbling out the back end of a wagon one day last week. The Burt Monitor records the mishap. Bailey: A story is being circulated to the effect that a young Garner lady had a needle enter her waist about a year ago, and that it recently worked its way out of the arm of a voung man in Britt. A brakomnn on a Milwaukee gravel train was struck on the head by a plank and thrown from his train last week when it was making 25 miles an hour between Clear Lake and Garner. The surgeons found a large scalp wound, but otherwise the employe was all right, having sustained no dangerous injuries. Is this our Jim? The Wesley Reporter says: A man named Kelly, who came down from Bancroft Thursday to witness the ball game, was .found by the road side about eight miles north in an unconscious condition. It was thought at first he was dead, but his partner happened along soon after and succeeded in arousing him. Last Saturday a gang of track layers working south pf Eagle Grove ate canned beef for dinner and seven out of eight of them were taken violently sick immediately, the one who did not get sick did not eat the beef so there was no doubt about the beef making them sick, but they had recovered Monday morning so as to be able to go to work, Lon Wright was seriously burned Saturday while engaged in operating a threshing engine about six miles north of Garner. The water guage burst and Mr. Wright got on the engine to fix It, and In some manner got caught and held where the escaping steam struck him, until his companions could help him out of his precarious position, The Signal says he will recover. On Friday last a little daughter of Mr. Dawson's at Mason City, a miss about eight years of age, attempted to start a fire with a bunch of burning shavings when her hair, which she wore long, was ignited by tha blaze, and in a few seconds her hair and clothing was enveloped in flames.

It was a. curious- game, as the report in the Swea City Herald shows: The visitors brought the Algona battery, Salisbury and Clauson, and Swea City had Kuhr of Thompson to receive Hart,- The game- started in with a whitewash for Led* yard and three scores for the locals the' first inning. In the second ianing both clubs got a score, the third resulted in , a goose egg apiece, but the f brought four for the visitors and ing for the home team. From this on neither side scored. With the understanding that the locals could hit Salisbury when they wanted to, Hart threw them easy to the visitors for four innings so that their backers might be induced to put up some money on their favorites, and they took a good many offers when odds were given of two to one. Then Hart settled! down to business and kept the TlB-Hoae" hits scattered so that they could not. score, but Sulisburv proved to be equal to the occasion, and though the locals' said be wns "easy" they failed' to demonstrate the fact to anybody. This: is .the third game our boys have lost this year and they were BO confident of \vinning this that they feel greatly chagrined, and are just aching fora return game, Not Bluffy Ground This Time, Eagle Grove still kicks.

' Tftei Algona boys brought their manager along as umpire, and our boys deserve' to be beaten for not showing better- judgment than to permit him toumpire the game. He deliberately gave Algona four scores which would have given the game a decidedly .different color. This advantage, with several 1 errors in the first inning, made AJgona a sura winner.
