Of course it would. Any Populist knwvs that six and four are ten, and k -their theory is righit, then wire nail would cost ten dollars a keg. Did tliey?

"At ail early day gold :uid silver was used as the money of the world. The preat writer on money, Delninr, lie whom our free silver and Populist friu'iids are so fond of quotijiR, tell,s 'us tlin.t for centuries ffol-d <vnd silver were worth precisely the same. That is, an ounce of gold was, worth a.n ounce of silver, a.nd no more. Then silver became more plentiful ami consequently cheaper, aind- the ratio was changed to. four to one; it took four ounces of silver to buy one of gold. In the first half of the Roman empire silver was still cheaper, n.ud the ratio was about six to one. • In T.lic roign of tne Caesars, or the last- ha.lf of the Roman empire, they began to coin money, and silver \vns worth one-tenth- of gold. or,v in other words, it took lea ounces of silver to equal one ounce of gold. During 'the existence of the Babylonian dynasty the ratio was tlnrtccn, TO one. tiud Europe first coined it at the ratio o£ fifteen to one. Ami that was the ratio ai which, this country first coined the two metals. .France reduced tlie ratio to fifteen and oiie-lialf to one, and now we have it at sixteen to one. "Directly after the Revolutionary war there wa.s na American money in circulation. Tfiere was nothing but English coins and English money, and the' first thJng that the Colonial Con- press did was to coasidor the question of the coinage . of money. Thomas Jefferson planned the monetary system of the country. The Colonial Congress decreed that the first unit of'value- now think of it, my Populist, friends— should, be two -and one-quarter pounds of co]>per. Then tlie Confederate Congress—not the Confederate Congress that went out of existence when the. war of the Rebellion,'was crushed—but the Confederate Congress succeeding the Colonial Congress. The Confederate Congress took up-the question of tlie ratio at which the pold and silver should be coined. It was not until 1792 that Congress took up tie matter in earnest Alexander Hamilton was then Secretary of the Treasury and he favored the single gold standard.'Some of the Representatives favored tlie .sin gle sHver standard,'but the majority of Congress favored the double standard. "Hanililton wrote to Jefferson, and .his letter Is still in existence, telling him of Ms doubts regarding the double standard. Jefferson replied, and mark this, my free silver friend," this letter too is still In existence, Jefferson re plied: 'Perhaps it is wise to try. the double standard, but you must IK careful to have the coinage ratio of your two metals equal, the commercial val ue.' So a committee of Congress got together and in order to fix the amount of .silver that should be in a dollar, gathered together a number of Spanish milled dollars and weighed them. They divided the total weight of these coins by the .number of coins, and the result was the average weight of fbree hundred seventy-one and a quarter grains, So it was settled that tlie silver dollar should contain this amount of fine silver. But now they came to the Important part. What slwuld be the weight of the gold dollar? After a careful examination of tie worth of the two metals, that is the commercial worth, the committee decided that one ounce of gold was worth fifteen ounces of silver: .' "It soon became apparent that fifteen ounces" of silver were not worth one ounce of gold, and what was the result? The gold left the country. Now listen; my Populist friend: .No nation ever did or ever will keep two metals circulaitiiBg side by side, when one is more valuable than the other. Now we come to the important point. In 1884 Thomas Bemtori, sometimes called "Old Bullion," aided by another Democrat of whom you .have all heard. Andrew Jackson, brought iu a law to change the ratio. They -tried to force the ratio at .sixteen to one, but. silver at that ratio was-worth more'than' gold, and when that law. was put Iti effect, the. silver left the country. The silver quarters and liailf dollars bad Just a quarter or a half as much silver in them .as the dollar, and so they were melted down by the Jewelers and were bought by foreigners. In 1853 Franklin PIerco;and- a Democratic Congress "paiss'ed ft"law reducing the weight of the smaller coins, and'they'quit melting them down. There was no profit-In it.; J A Populist in, Hastings, Nebraska, asked me if that.was • honest. I asked him why? He said that he did not think It- was;honest.Aw- tlie Govern- meht'to issue-A moneyssborfitt weight according to the ratio. I-toiaihlm that for every dollar of those'.:coins, the Government .stood ready ito.'redeem thelri at the TreafcurrniWi* dollar in sliver or a dollaiaJn *>»: (cheers). He reminded me of lie Mytog of Josh Bil- lings, Uiat 'it is better for .1 man to know a few tilings that are so, than to know a great many tilings that are not so' (laughter). That is tiie record of the Democratic pai'ty ou- silver. .Now, can you conceive^of a Democrat who would go back on -his party's record 0.11 the coinage question? "Now we conic to tlie 'crime of '73.' and you who have tears to shed, prepare to shed them ' now (laughter. There never was JT bill more thoroughly discussed, more carefully considered, tha-u 'the so-tailed 'crime of '73. Why r.lieu, was that hill pr.sscd. if it was sucli a. monstrous crime? I will tell you why; it was because the business men of the country h.id come- to the conclusion that it was impossible to do business under tho double stan- . dard. One or the other of tlie m-efcils refused to stay in circulation, according to which was undervalued.

The, fact tlnait molasses, the residuum of sugar making, is selling in New Orleans at three cents a gallon, Is. bringing "to the attention of tine people of the southwest the necessity of find- Ing some.Tise for it other than as food for .human beings. Tihe suggestion has,' : ; been made, and bids fair to' be carried. : :out, that'it should-be used .as food for. ; -caifctle. • Experiments made in Germany have shown ,t3iat saixdinrtoe matter.of this kind can be fed to stock with : great advantage, giving 1 to them as-.: much as they care to eat, and with this substitute the animals do" not need to be fed with as large a quantity as they would -ordinarily require of certain kinds of, grain. Of _conrs«, sugar or molasses does-not'take the place of a ?; variety of food given to ananols; tiey' ; merely supply, a special need.. But It : is estimated : that if molasses is selling-i •alt. throe ceals a go'Uan «t can be used;? for food ait a third of the cost required --^ to purchase the corn needed to per- >• form a similar nutritive service. , USE SjMAiUL WORDS. ,..; Its not proper to use Kg words."
