"Certainly," said Ell, "every civilized vation uses the two metals—gold and j'.ver—but the United States is tlie only nalion that has coined as much silver js gold. We have been rank bimetal- Hsts. We have stood by silver too long. Wo have coined $025.300,000 worth of -silver aud $020,000,000 worth of gold." "What have the other great nations roinedV" asked the Populist. "Why, Ihey have coined less than half ns much as we have. England (the .United Kingdom) has coined and has on hand $112.000,000: worth of >silver .-and .Hi50,000,000 in gold; France has S4U3,- 200.000 in silver aud $825.000,000 in gold; Germany has only $215.000, silver and S02i).000.000 in gold; Russia has only $•18,000.000 in silver and $-153,000,000 in gold." '•Then wo have coined about as much (•liver as nil of them together.?" "Not•quite. These four great nations, with a population of 249*000,000 people, have on hand S870.000.000 in silver, while we, with 09,000,000 people, have .YU2r>.000,000 in silver." "Where is our silver nowV" asked the Populist. "Why, $008,000.000 lies piled up in tho treasury. It is rusting in the vaults, paying no interest, and dropping in value. -Carlisle ifi begging the, people to take it, freight free. but. he can only-get :-r>(!.0()0,000 in circulation. The people won't..have it. They sling it back to tho banks, aud then the free silver men jump up and cry, 'We want more silver!' They say, 'The poor people arc dying for silver. Coin more!' "And how much of our gold is in' circulation Y" "Why, every folilary dollar—$020,000.000 worth of it. The banks only hold tf12S.000.000." "You don't say the nation has no gold at all?" "Xo gold of our own. We borrowed $200,000,000. from a* few Americans at. .'( per cent, and spent that running the government—and we've got to pay it back. Then Cleveland borrowed Jfrtp,- (100,000 more from the Hothsohilds and the English at 4 per cent., while our own people were crying for it at !i per cent., and thai we've got. to return in gold.- 'I'o tell 1 yon the. honest truth, this nation has got just $00.000,000 worth of borrowed gold ill the treasury. It isn't ours. .It is borrowed to prevent a run on the- treasury, with $100,000,000 in liold due tho people besides.

"Home nations have free coinage," suggested (ho Populist. "Certainly—and look at their condition! They are bankrupt.

Among tho transparencies carried by the shoutcrs for P-iyan at Dos Moines Friday evening were some bearing tlie words, '.'Silver is tin; poor man's money," "Vote for the poor man's money" and "A 200-ceut dollar is a dishonest dollar." Such Fonteiioes show tlie drift of the public mind and reveal only too plainly Unit 'with many people-.the silver .question is one of prejudice rather'.than one of reason, What is the moaning of the phrase, "Silver is the poor man's money?" We doubt very much if the man who carried that transparency.' could have given an intelligent answer. Under present conditions a silver dollar of the United Stales will buy just as much at home or abroad as a gold dollar. It makes no difference lo tho workingman whether Jt3 receives his weekly wages in gold or sliver coin, The anio.unt of goods be "can purchase is the »i\nw, Until tho agitation of tho silvorites drove Il(o gold of tlio country into hiding places workmen wore often paid in gold and when this silver i;raxe is squelched Ihey will again receive gold as a part of their 'JVrc is one way, however, In which silver can be said to be the poor- man's money. In those countries wlieie the coinage of hilver is unrestricted (lie wage- earners are emphatically poor. A list of those count!ics is printed in another column this morning and tlie wages paid to skilled and unskilled laborers given. As was shown by tho \vcll-aulhentieated leU tors from Mexico published in the. Ke- publican on Friday and .Saturday the price of the necessaries of life in those countries is double tlio price pttid in tho United Htalcs. Js this "tho poor man's money" that the wage-earners of the United States are to vote for? Are (hoy willing to sink to the luvol of tlio Mexican-peon or the coolie of India'.' If so tlio way to do it is to vote for the free and unlimited coinage of silver. If a free coinage law Midi as js contemplated bv the sjlverites be passed, onu of two things must happen. Either the silver of tho entire world must bo lifted to a parity with gold or the silver dollar of Iho United Status must sink to the Jovol of Mexico and other silver countries, In that caso tho wages ot the workingman will be'cut' in two and ho will indeed have cause lo talk of "poor man s inomy."

It can hardly bo necessary, therefore 1 , In wait for his "formal letter" in order to learn his .views, on the issues of tlie campaign. The most of his long and prosy speech is devoted to what he calls "the paramount question of the campaign—the money question."'' And as this is in fact the real issue other parts of Ids speech may be disregarded..oral least comment on them may be postponed. Jn discussing the money question Mr. Bryan assumes at every stop that (he standard dollar we now have is too valuable. That assumption lies at the bottom of the whole argument. He complains thnt the-dollar is too dear, am that it is growing dearer: and to this he attributes all our economic woes, real or imaginary. A* a remedy he proposes something which he calls bimetallism, but which, so far from that, is silver moiiometal lism, * • lie has much to say about bimetallism, declaring that no party opposes it, but what he really proposes is, in his own words, "the immediate restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold at tlie present legal ratio of 1W to 1 without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation." Tlias is to say, he proposes; to permit anyone who has sixteen ounce's of silver to take |t to tho mint and have it made into as~.many dollars as are made from one ounce of gold, or £20.07. Uo proposes Ibis when ho knows, or may know by referring to the published quotations, that sixteen ounces of silver aro worth only $11 in gold. He must know that an ounce of gold is worth in the market nearly twice sixteen ounces of silver. What he. really proposes, therefore, is to substitute tlio silver dollar for tho gold dollar as our standard, and to make the substitution because (he silver dollar is cheaper. Indeed, ho virtually admits this ut almost every slop in his labored argwponl. All his arguments addressed to farmers, to men who work for wages, to holders of insurance policies and so on virtually •admit that ho proposes to substitute u cheaper dollar as the standard, Ho tries to conceal the- admission, by talking about a "rising standard," uinl talking about "influences which ar« now operating to destroy silver in tho UpiU'd States." lint whilo' the attempt is lulroit it will not succeed, AA'o have no "rising standard,' A\ o have the same standard that wo have had in all coin payments for sixty-two years, An ounce of gold may exchange for more of commodities in general U'-'in U would twenty or thirty years ago; It may, and probably does, go J'arjhi!!' in paying the neces -\ry cost of living, lint it will not go further in paying Jor labor. Its value measured by tlie labor standard, is less than it wiw years ago. A man can eurn more of it by working thp samo'number of hours, If, then, hu can buy moro with the ounce of gold no is better oft' in two ways': Ho gets, wore goltj fov his labor and he gets wore ot tho necessaries and eomtorts of !ifo Jor There' arc no "influencos operating to esli'oy silver in the United States,' 1 lie says, that has brought down all this alleged calamity upon us. Kohodv but the mine owner would be bonolitod if silver should go tin from (18 to 120 cents per ounce, aiid we can hardly suppose that Mr, Hrynn Is running thJH silver crusade for the sole and exclusive-bonom.of a handful of millionaire mine owners. Ills whole argument ,is for 'chejipor dollars if it has any sense or point at all. He entices farmers to join in the cru- tiiido by suggesting that they can pay their debts easier with chei\p dollars. He is like the unjust steward who said to tluvdobtitr who owed his lord a hundred measures of oil, "take thy bill and sil down quickly and write fifty." He tolls the wage-earners that it. would he a good thing for thorn to got their pay in cheaper dollars and that, in some roundabout way 'cheaper dollars Would give them steadier employment. lie (ells the holders of insurance poli- cies'that it would bo,'a blessed thing for thorn to have their losses jiaid in cheaper dollars, because (he companies Would lose more than (hey (the pollcyholders) would,'tho'aggregate of premiums ox- coMiiiK the aggregate of losses, aud the premiums being paid in cheaper dollars. Uo tolls tho doposilors in savings banks that it would be a nice thing for them to draw out cheaper dollars than they put in because If they don't (hoy may not be able to draw out anything, or they may find it necessary to draw out all their money to meet living expenses. Hy such puerilities lit; seeks to induct! people to swallow the free hilver pill. Hut wo observe one strange oversight. Mr. Hryan did not explain bow cheaper dollars would bunotil pensioners. lie might have told them that they could moro than mako. up their loss by dead- beating their landlords and butchers and grocers. Hut lie lost his opportunity. Perhaps he will attend to that in his ^'formal letter." AA'lien it come* to (hat be .may Iliiuk it bohl to make it a little clearer, if he can. how workingmon, policy holders, depositors in pavings hanks awl investors in building and loan association^ would he bonolilcd by getting their pay In dollars worth anywhere from 10 to 50 per cent, loss than the dollars they are now getting, or the dollars they deposited, invested or paid in iiromiunis.

At a later day your gallantry and fidelity secured your promotion and assignment to duty on (ho general staff. But whatever tho distinction or disparity in rank you always retained close touch with (he boys who wore your first associates in army life.
