It caused the •netment of the law providing for the .- resumption of specie payments in. 1879; •luce then every dollar has been as good as gold. "We are unalterably opposed to «rery measure calculated to debase •or currency or Impair the credit of •or country. We are therefore oppose! to the free.colnage of silver except by International agreement with the lead- Jag commercial nations of the world, which we pledge ourselves to promote, •»d until then such gold standard must ft* preserved.

"We demand the free nnd unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present logal ratio of 10 to 1, without waiting for the nld or consent of any •tber nation.

In a. way Mr. Bryan iis consistent. Then 'ho proposed to lower American wages. Today he proposes the same thing by another plan. Then lie wanted 'the cost of home production lowered to a -pauper-foreign laibov basis. Now 'ho proposes to pay labor with a fifty- cent dollar, and make labor pay for its necessities, two dollars where one Is needed now. The home consumption of farm produce in 1S02 was SO per cent of the out- pat. Consumers -hod 100-ceut dollars with which to buy. It must be ad-. emitted that tho masses had more money in 1S92 than in 1800. I-t is a fact that ttie consumption of. wheat per capita In the United States' in 1S02 was more <th'an five bushels.' In 1S95 it was less than three bushels per capita, "Wages would not Increase with the debasement of the dollar. The day lire United States slumps to a sliver 'basis. Jill the toil and strife nnd effort of tho years thalt labor has fought for its rights, the fair wages now enjoyed by the employed, will be set ait naught 'by cutting In half the buying ability of the dollar in which labor Is paid. Tliis year's home consumption ot wheat, for instance, may be placed a,t three bushels per head, with consumers paying in good dollars; With fifty- \ cent dollars (and it 1s claimed liy.Pop-- ocr.its that prices cannot mo with a 100 cent dollar) the consumer's wages would only buy h-nlf what -they did; in 1S05. «*,.,.

Are the people to be employed at good, steady wages during the panic Mr. Brynn predicts as a companion to free siilVer? With present conditions of era-ployed consumers, and -a cheapened doJlar, the -home market for the farmer wou-id be cut one-third at least and probably more, An undcr-cansuiinnitton of which they complain now would, during the panicky .times, -that even sllverltes admit would follow Bryan's election 1 , be made more evident. The 'home consumption of farm products fell in 1805, and this year'it. is still lower. How Tvlill the consumer's dollars become more plentiful? No one has explained. How much' more of the farmer's output can -the consumer buy whose dollar l«"Cut down one-half in purchasing power? This is a question the farmer ought to consider carefully and earnestly.

At New London ,Conn,, tue following colloquy took placc: A voice: "Where will we be when we get free silver?" Mir. Bryan: "Are you Jii favor of a gold'Standard?" Tho voice: "I am"." Mr. Bryan: '"JW11 me.why." The Voil.ee: "Because I believe it is •best for the country. Every nation will accept a gold dollar for a dollar." Mr. Bryan: "Why? I will tell you. Because of Ms value; the.reason why our gold dollar «nd our bullion a-re wortli tho same is because the Jaw. says that you caiu convert the bullion into aV dollar "at the mint" ; .;•.' .The Voice: "Well, how .about silver?" . _.'.-,'•'»): Mr, Bryan: "When the laws arc so,' under the free coinage of silver,;.the holder, of silver bullion can convert his silver into dollars at.the mint that will fix & mint price for silver, as we have a mint price r for gold now, aind our silver dollars will be worth as much olbroad as our gold dollars.'.' In this Mr. Bryan plainly states .that the government 'fixes the value under free coinage. . Mr. Bryan knows better. than 'that He.' knows.that.

It is hardly necessary to add tihat the language as quoted was not used by.elther party iand that Mr. Pixler afterwards apologized to Mr. Bishop for his hasty language.

Tlen- A PLAIN TALK TO WORKINGMEN Th» A U C of tbe Slltor Qnmtlra Clearly Put, Let us not get mixed up with complei matters in connection with the free silver idea. Let us not befog our brain with arguments about flic crime of 1873 01 bother with the many theories which the advocates of fre« silver are But let us take a common-sense view of the situation. Now, to start with: Suppose Brynn was elected and tht free coinage act had been passed and that free coinage was an actual fact. Suppose that silver could be taken to the mint and coined into silver dollars at the ratio of sixteen to one. Ilow would that affect us? We haven't got any silver bullion. A whole lot of people who own silvex mines have it, and no they could havt it coined into sixteen to one dollars, bnt not having any ourselves we could not have a solitary, single dollar coined under the free silver act. •Now, suppose, however, that all the silver mine owners and others who had silver took it all to Washington or Philadelphia or to some other United States mint and had it coined into sixteen to one dollars, nnd Suppose so much had been coined that all the silver in. the world \VM made into sixteen to one dollars, and ' Suppose that everyone of these dot lars wns piled in one heap right on the next block, and Suppose every tangle one of them was worth 100 cents here and everywhere. What good would they do us unleu we had something we could trade by which we- could get one? Well, we have something to trade; everybody lias. Some- have labor, so much, for a do! T lar. Some have lumber, so much for • dollar. Some have sugar or potatoes or hama or coal or something else, all BO much for a dollar. We have advertising and subscriptions, so much for a dollar. When -we want one of those silver dollars, we cannot go and take it. They don't belong to us. They belong to the men who -took the -silver to the mint to be coined. If we took one, it would be stealing. ' If ws asked <or one lor nothing, It. would be begging.' • If the owners gave :p» one ior noth- Ing. it-wonld"bea-Bri*t. ' ',.'.. • -If --WB borrowed • one^dv wronld eo*t .. us interest, and BO Most .of -us, -to -get "one,- Jnnst trade labor, Juttfber/ sugar, coal, advertisjaf- or something to get it, This is absolutely end honestly ««, isn't it? Well, being so, why do we take »ny chances on- the 1 dollar? We can get gold now. It is worth 100 cents on. tbe dollar everywhere. . So we have supposed the silver to be, •• but . Suppose it isn't? What then? What is the use of taking- a chance unless we can do better? A silver dollar won't be worth more than JOOeenta, ' will it? We are getting that now. Let well enough alone. Some say duty compels a democrat to back up and vote for a democrat, You have Bryan's word that he IB no democrat. Let him deny that he said it, ,. • Some say it. is pretty bad now. We might, as well take a "chance. It can't ; be : worse. ( What-Jcind of tomfoolery is this? :Are .things bad in-a business way? : Let us t«ll yon something- to try.
