F. T. Greene: ft paj Which "The New Vork orking has SfiNATOft ALLISON SAID, The Courier and other democratic papers have from time to time quoted a statement about the demonetizing act of 3873, purporting to come from Sena tor Allison. The Courier has asked several times why THE UPPER DBS MOUSES has not explained it away, while quoting Senator Allison's other utterances. Our readers may be interested in knowing what Senator Allison actually said. The statement as it has-appeared in the Courier and as it is usually quoted is not Senator Allison's at all. By leaving out one or two clauses it is made to convey an impression which as he uttered it it did not convey. As quoted by the Courier Senator Allison said: "When the secret history of this bill of 1878 comes to be told it will disclose the fact that the house of representatives intended to coin both gold and silver, and intended to place both metals upon the French relation instead of on our own, which was the true scientific position in reference to this subject in 1873, but that bill was afterward doctored—was chautred after discussion and the dollar of 412 grains substituted for it." By comparing this statement with the following from the official report in the Congressional Record the difference will readily be seen: Mr. Allison—* * * "But when the secret history-of the bill of 1878 comes to be told, it will disclose the fact that the house of representatives intended to coin both gold and silver, -and intended to place both metals upon the French relation instead of our own, which was the true scientific position with reference to this subject in 1873, but that the bill afterward was doctored, if I may use the term, and I use it in no offensive sense of course—" Mr. Sargent—It was amended in the senate and went to a committee «of conference, if that is "doctored;" and the report of the committee of conference was concurred in by the two houses. I should like to know if the word " doctored" applies to our legislation here, where there has been three or four days' debate. Mr. Allison—I said I used the word in no offensive sense. It was changed after the discussion, and the dollar of 420 grains was substituted for it. We call special attention to the words the " house of representatives" in order to more clearly bring out the real point of his remarks, and to more clearly indicate what he meant by the doctoring he refers to. It was the house of representatives which proposed the384 grain silver dollar Senator Allison refers to. That dollar was never adopted in the senate. The bill stopping silver coinage originated in the senate, and passed that body without provision for any silver dollar in 1871. It then went to the house, where the 384 grain dollar was added In 1872. It then went back to the senate and the trade dollar, 420 grains, was substituted for the 384 grain dollar at the request of the Pacific slope representatives, and the house adopted the bill as it came from the senate and the conference com 1 mittee. The doctoring Senator Allison referred to was the change made by the senate in the bill as it left the house, a very common thing in all legislation, and, as he says, he used the term in no offensive sense. • In talking about the 384 grain dollar proposed in the house it must always be kept in mind that it was to be part of our subsidiary coinage, was to be legal tender for only $5, and was to be , coined on government account exactly as our small change is now. At no time from 1870 when the silver bill was introduced until 1873 when it became a Jaw was there any proposal to continue the coinage of the standard silver dollar, 412} grains, nor was there any .proposal to continue to coin full legal tender money out of silver. organized to take care of herself; a sympathetic essay on the work of Olin Wainef, the eminent American sculptor who recently filed. ____ • ___ ^^ _^ _____ m THIS KElGEBORflOOD, race meeting, Emmetsburg has a $2,200 purses, Oct. 6-8. Armstrong Journal: Amy Puegnet came up from Suicide Town Tuesday, to hunt, visit with the boys and take in the races.

Miss Hancock as an elocution* ist possesses marked ability. Typhoid fever has postponed a wedding near Swea City, the would-be bride being down with It. Carl Bigelow and Miss McAdams are the parties most interested, and they were to have been married on Tuesday. Guy L. Taylor was at Burt Monday to give an exhibition shooting contest. The Monitor says: Some of our town boys have invented a live bird trap that is considered by shootists to be a peach, and will present it to Mr. Taylor with their best wishes that in the next world's trophy shoot he may be able to carry off the honors. He has accepted the new trap. Bailey: An Ida Grove editor was licked by a banker, and now he sues for shekels to use as salve to heal his wounded feeling. The outcome will be watched with interest. If the verdict is large enough this may be utilized as a way to raise funds to pay office expenses.

The Swea City Herald makes a suggestion to county fair officials: We suggest that the fair be advertised. for four days next year, beginning on Tuesday, with racing program .for the first three days, and in case of rain one day the program oould be set along a day. If the unlocked for should occur, with no rain, a special program could be arranged among the horsemen with small outlay for the last day. The Des Moines Record has a fine cut of Bert Edmonds with one of his new wheels, and says: Bert Edmonds of the Timms Manufacturing company of Seymour,-Ind., was in the city this week visiting old friends, He was the guest of his old partner, Jack Pancoast. Bert is spending a few days before the opening of winter manufacturing in visiting over the country. The exact date. for commencing work next spring's business is not decided upon. He states that his establishment is putting out a great number of their machines. No attempt has yet been made to place them in the west, the east alone being worked. Mr. Edmonds' exhibitions on the wheel of his make, which he has with him, are very skillful and give out the idea that they are easily handled. _6P mnt , it. The free eoihage of silver at 16 to i does not mean bimetallism lot the u&ited States. It means that We will use the grain of silver as out standard of value, in common with Mexico, Japan, China, and a few other nations below their grade, in- fttfead 6f the grain of gold, which we 1 , in common with all of Europe, have for many years used. Nine tenths (of our commerce is with the latter peoples. If our standard varies from theirs from day to day as Silver and gold vary in their relative values, a ibuf den is laid Upon every bushel of grain and pound of meat which seeks that market. How would it affect the farmers of Iowa to have the money used in this state constantly Varying as compared with the money Used in Chicago! Every farmer knows that the man who buys hogs on the streets of Algona must have margin enough to cover not only the natural fluctuations of supply and demand, but of shrinkage, death, inspection, and every risk to Which he is subject. Add to these, fluctuations of tbe money, and the middleman must protect these also in the margin. When we were away from the world's standard, using paper money, this was one of the strongest arguments used for bringing our money to the gold standard. In 1874, Senator Stewart, now the Nevada silverite, advocating the resumption act, said: I say a depreciated currency Is attended middlemen provide with many-VvIfs7'The tr* f^JT, trated, from Illinois r, Liverpool , person who handles that grain wll himself against these fluctuations. everr insure .

Clock, well known to Algona young people: How inscrutable are the decrees of fate! This thought occurred to us again when the news of the untimely death of George L. Clock came last Wednesday. As we look around and.see the worthless cumberers of the earth, who could be taken without loss and without being missed, and see this young man, who was perhaps the most promising 'young man in Hampton, snatched away with hardly a moment's notice from what promised to be a career of usefulness and honor, we have another striking instance of the utter inability of mankind to fathom this great problem of the laws of nature. But we can only blindly submit and uncomplainingly bow ourselves to the strokes as they fall upon our defenceless heads. George Livingston Clock was born at Geneva in this county, Aug. 18. 1876, and dying Sept. 16, 1896, had reached the age of twenty years, one month and three days. From earliest chijdr hood he manifested an unusual interest .-_ you currency you have not „„„-!,., * *-,-- ,-T ount transportation, but you have to take Into account the Insurance that every man who handles the wheat will take against the change In the price In gold constantly coming upon him. ft gives speculators and middlemen a, chance to cut both ways and eat up the consumer and the producer.

Do not let us try to deceive _le; do not let us try to .eve by some hocus-pocus of can give them something e them a measure of the universal stand_ ssional Record, Jan. page 860. We sold abroad during the last year of President Harrison's administration $1,000,000,000 worth of our products. The price of silver has fluctuated four per cent, in the last four weeks. A tax of four per cent, on that volume of exports would be $40,000,000, saying nothing of the additional cost of our imports. That is not all. The price that can be paid for farm products for export affects the price for home use. That is not all. All things of common use among civilized peoples have a universal value and will follow more or less closely the universal standard. You may manipulate the value of your currency, but you cannot manipulate the value of such things, for their value is broader than your jurisdiction. You can involve their prices in continual uncertainty, and of all classes the wage-earner and farmer are most helpless under such conditions. The wage- earner must sell his labor at home, and most farm products are too bulky for transportation to.foreign markets. Does believe skilled money a gold coin, a promissory note, ft real estate lease, a price mark, ft Wage agreement, a market quotation, or anywhere, to mean always the same thing—to be at a certain standard. Of course we Want the best standard—the world** standard. We have said that we hope to make the joint standard, gold and silver at their actual value, the world's standard. But as between the gold standard and silver Standard we will adhere to the former, which we have have had for many years and Which experience has proven to be the best. The value of the standard against which all products are measured in the exchanges is not in itself important. Its stability is the quality of importance. The size of the measure doesn't affect the amount of the thing measured. A cheap, standard of value is of no more benefit than a small bushel or a short yard. The importance of the quantity of the commodity chosen as the standard of Value may be much exaggerated, It is of insignificant Importance so far as the exchanges are concerned, for an insignificant part of the exchanges are made by the use of the standard coin. " Gold standard" does not mean gold as the only medium of exchange, but only that the word dollar in every medium shall mean the value of the gold dollar. Nine- tenths of our modern exchanges are made without the use of any form of legal tender money, muchjess the use of the standard coin. The county of Kossuth has in it a stock of money of which the standard coin Is an insignificant part. If there was not a single one of the standard coins in the county it would make no difference. Its stock of money is for the local, retail exchanges. If it was not that banks in the centers pay interest on balances, and so draw idle money to them, which is returned on call, actually shipped the amount of money in and out of Kossuth the farmer, at work in the field, that he the of can get the best of traders in the uncertainties fluctuations ? •*- -i- H- Here is a paragraph from one of Daniel Webster's great speeches, which fits the question of today, as though made for it: The very man. of all others, who has the deepest Interest In a sound currency, and who suffers most by mischievous legislation m money matters, is the man who earns his dally bread by his dally toll. * * * His property is in his hands. His reliance, his fund, his productive freehold, his all, is his labor. Whether he work on his own small capital or another's, his living is still earned by his industry; and when the money of the country becomes depreciated and debased, whether it be adulterated coin or paper without credit, that industry Is robbed of Its reward. He then labors for a country whose laws cheat him out of his bread. I would say to every owner of every quarter section of land in the west, I would say to every man in the east who follows his own plow, and- to every mechanic, artisan and laborer of every city In the country—I would say to every man, everywhere, who wishes by honest means to gain an honest living, ' beware of wolves in sheep's clothing,' whoever attempts, under whatever popular cry, to shake the stability of the public currency * * * stabs your interests and your happiness to the heart. If putting the dollar stamp upon 50 cents worth of private silver is not creating a " debased coin" what did Webster mean by that term? -5- -t* in books and was never in a class in sokool where be was excelled by any of his associates.

Do we want it for itself t There has never been more than about *26 for each of us in the country, and I never heard the most extreme populist advocate over $50 "per capita." Evidently our use for it is as a medium of exchange. The pay for our products comes Jn the products of others, Tbe farmer turns off his grain and stock and receives for It the comforts pf life produced by other hands in all parts of the globe, tbe sohopllng pf bis children, and, perhaps, if times »re prosperous, a new barn, pr more land, or a promissory note which a neighbor's products will pay in tbe future. j$ } 9 a oivuj ? ed barter, Tbe problem of pur day }s tp make these e»with the least possible cost tp tbe prpd\jcer, Tbe middlemen §nd transport- county in a year would be insignificant compared with the volume of trade between Kossuth and the rest of the world. The trade of the world is not carried on in money. We have a good illustration of that in our international trade, because there we can get at the exact amount of money used. In 1892 our exports and imports aggregated nearly $1,900,000,000 and we exported of gold $49,699,454 and imported $50,195,827, which means that the cash payments were about five per cent of the total business. If our purchases and sales had come a little closer together the cash payments might have been reduced to about half a million dollars. Does anybody believe that this trade between the United States and the world was hindered or crippled in 1892 by a lack of facilities for exchange—a lack of money, if you please! It might have been ten times greater and the actual cash balance been even less. And yet every" shipment of those goods— nineteen thousand million dollars worth- was measured in its transfer by the standard dollar of the United States, which the republican party is fighting to keep of steady value. This illustrates the distinction between the standard of value and the various mediums of exchange. The trade between Kossuth county and the outside world is conducted in the same manner as the trade between the United States and the rest of the world. The Algona hog- buyer ships to Chicago, rtnd the result is that an Algona bank gets a credit on the books of a Chicago bank. An Algona merchant buys a bill of goods in Chicago and the Algona bank is charged with it. The two transactions offset each other. Both are completely closed without the use of a dollar. The hogs and goods paid for each other. There is a certain amount of money used as what we may call " counters," (or perhaps in Algona would be called "chips") In the collection of the hogs and in retailing the goods, but most of that brings up in the banks every night, or perhaps twice a day, and is used over and over with great rapidity. The more, of Kossuth county's products are shipped out the more commodities are shipped in, and no matter whether the goods shipped in come from Chicago, St. Paul, San Francisco, Denver, New Orleans, New York or Boston, the settlement is by the same methods. Credits somewhere, created by Kossuth county's grain and stock pay tbe bills. But remember that every hog or steer and every bushel of grain on the one side and every yard or pound of merchandise on the other, is measured in its value by the standard dollar of the United States, which the republican party is fighting to maintain of fixed value. The total settlements of banks with each other last week in 82 leading cities of this country—the balancing of drafts and cheeks which they hold against each other -aggregated $827,011,184, and it is instructive to note the amounts in the eight leading cities; Oh£aJ° rk $461,634,845 umoago «.......,.,, Yj2 490 0*^1 Boston.,,.., ,.,.,..,,,.. .,,,,,,,,, 68 > 735'o45 Philadelphia '. 57!754.'o39 St, Louis 18,979028 ""•" *""»»•'•»•" IS.'imlseO ments. You can't drive the business World back to the shipment of money or its use, except for the payment of balances and in retail transactions, any more than yon can get the people to use a stagd coach instead of a railway. In theory the drafts of Kossuth county against the world and of the world against Kossuth ate redeemable in money, but ih fact they af e redeemed in commodities. When the balance runs for a time one way, if its money is on a level with the rest of the world, that locality drains from the rest of the world. Ih no case is the standard money the only medium of exchange. The only importance for volume In standard money is Itt the fact that the Only method of maintaining the parity of other money with the standard is by exchangeability. Tliis makes it necessary for the government to keep a reserve of the standard coin, but when men talk about there not being enough of the standard coin to do the business they talk nonsense, for it need not be Used for business at all. The standard is for measurement, not for exchange, as the " candle-power" in the lighting world is now for measurement and not for use. The government may provide any instruments of exchange which seem best, but it must keep them a't some standard. If it should go to the silver standard and put out any kind of government paper, the problem of the reserve will be changed none at all. •4- •*- -i- One word about the charge that the present stringency has been caused by a conspiracy of the banks. The New York City banks are the ones generally accused. The bank statement of Saturday, Sept. 12, shows that since Bryan was nominated the banks of New York City have lost $57,888,800 of deposits, reduced their loans $24,454, 100 and increased their circulation $4,115, 900. These figures answer the charge completely. Nobody is so unreasonable as to claim that a bank can loan its deposits when the owners are calling for them. The New York banks have called in less than half the money which they have paid out. They have increased their circulation to meet the emergency and done all they could to promote the importation of gold. Although more than $30,000,000 of gold has been imported their cash on hand does not increase, showing that they have paid it out to avoid calling loans. The incident is an illustration of the need of a monetary system under which a prompt and natural expansion of currency can occur, in time of need. -T- -*- -f- This letter is already much longer than I intended to make it, and of course lacks much of completeness upon these points, but I commend them for further consideration. GEO. E. ROBEBTS. BUSHED TO DEATH. The Youngest Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Doxsee Dies Prom Accidental Burning. Sunday afternoon, about 6 o'clock, while little Adelaide Doxsee was playing with her brother and sisters at home, a flame caught her clothing, and in spite of all efforts death followed at 11 o'clock. The four children were at home in the back yard with a pumpkin jack-o'-lantern, which the second child, Wilbur, was trying to illuminate. As nearly as can be learned he first filled it with hay and burned it. Then it seems he went to the house and got a cup of gasoline from the can and poured that into the pumpkin. Some sparks undoubtedly remained and ignited the oil. The children were all standing about and the sudden flash caught the youngest, who was slowest to move. The next older barely escaped. Mrs. John Wallace was in her garden about six rods away and saw the first flash.

There was some talk of bavin? A n Rankin speak with Mrs. day evening on Dunham Sun! temperance. But he . and she do not represent the same ganizations. After Mrs. Dunham was through she and Mr. Rankin had quite an earnest conversation about stated or- was ments she had about the third heard he had made • u, r. . Partyites. It was all amicable but quite vivacious. She wanted him to promise to be cautious in the future, and he agreed to be verv cautious, except when occasion arose to tell the truth at which times he agreed to be quite outspoken. Many went to the church expecting to hear Rankin, and were disappointed. Besides his other accomplishments Bro. Bailey, of the Britt Tribune, is an expert drummer. When a boy he drummed all over Wisconsin with a recruiting corps. He tried to get into the army but was rejected severaltimes on account of his youth He still drums for the Britt drum corps, which came over to Wesley for a meeting Saturday evening, and a better drum corps the state does not afford. Mr. Mudgett is a fifer of a thousand, while to see Bailey handle the drum sticks is well worth the price of admission The Wesley people encored the corps until Bailey got faint and sat down on the floor. His young boy handles the sticks about as well, and is also a fine drummer. Wesley has made astonishing growth in the past five years. It is a new town. The new bank building S. X. Way presides over is a two story two front building m pressed brick and stone with handsome big plate windows and handsome oak furniture. The Ed. Kunz building has now three fronts and pressed brick are being put in making it a city block. The new school house is stylish and commodi- nffV H v, a ° d , 80 u m ?, addi «on, and the Catholic brick building is substantial. Wesley has three big grain elevators. Fred. Anderson, Chas. E. Jones, and Supervisor Hollenbach are the popular managers. One is owned by the business men and is run to make Wesley the market town. Wesley is pushing right along and whatever is taken hold to the chores, also about tant.

For some time she did not suffer but before death the suffering was very great. Adelaide was a very attractive child, two years and 11 months old.

WESLEY, Sept. 29.-Wesley is nearly depopulated. Pretty near everybody went to Britt to attend the Allison and Dolliver rally. The republican rally here last Saturday night was one of the greatest successes of the kind ever held in Wesley. Everybody that was there speaks in the highest terms of Mr. Ingham's speaoh. The Britt drum corps rendered some inspiring music at the rally Saturday evening. a If anyone doubts that Wesley will roll up her old time republican majority this fall, with a 16 to P 1 gain over four years ago, he ought to have been to the republican meeting Saturday night and seen the enthusiasm there. Rev. C. E. Plummer closed up his second year's pastorial work here last Sunday and started for Eagle Grove Monday to attend conference, Rev. Plummer has put in two very success/ fui years of labor while he has been pastor of the church here, and has gone to conference with the best wishes of the church membership and the citizens of Wesley and vicinity.
