THOS.'KBLUY,* BROS., The Man Who Has a Silver Dollar 1 KNOWS that It Is now worth 100 oenta for the pnrchaso of whatever he may ne«d for himself and his family, although the actual value of .the silver in the coin is only about FIFTY-THREE CENTS. '••• ' ••"••••' ;"•'• "WHY? Simply because the'govern- ment of the United States bought the silver, coined tK«so dollars and put them into circulation and has given its pledge to keep each of them worth 100 cents, no matter how much the bullion, value of the silver used in making it may de- olino. • BUT NOBODY KNOWS what the silver would bo worth under the proposed system of free coinage. UNDER FREE COINAGE OF SILVER the government would not pat oat Bilvordollars on its own account, and its guarantee would bo withdrawn, . THEN WHAT, under free and nn- limitod coinage, would.take the place of tho government guarantee which' now supports the silver dollar at par? NOTHING. For the CERTAINTY of the government's guarantee it is pro- posed'to substitute the mere CHANGE that free coinage will raise the bullion value of the" silver in the dollar to 100 cents. WHAT DOES THE CHANCE AMOUNT TO ? NO NATION ON EARTH HAS EVER BEEN ABLE BY-THE FREE COINAGE OF BOTH GOLD AND SILVER, AT ANY RATIO, TO BRING AND KEEP THE BULLION VALUE OF BOTH METALS TO THE COINAGE VALUE, ALTHOUGH. . THE DIFFERENCE TO BE OVERCOME WAS VERY LITT.LE,, AND THE DIFFERENCE TO BE NOW OVERCOME IS VERY GREAT. A LESiON ON THE DOLLAR. •We believe!»' dollars measured by :the Intrln: In tlie w«' markcu.'- . 60'-cent Demoocats*'— Ex-Qovernbr-Flbwer. '• Why American Workmen. .Should Vote 1'or McKInley anS'-Honeft Money. Capital and labor are natural partners —eaoh unprofitable and Impotent with- ontthe other. Both are equally interested. Without tho employment of capital labor would be idle: It has been very well said that business engagements involve time coutrncts; that all contracts are dependent upon payments; that no business man will enter into contracts until he s knows with inerrant explicitness jtfst how much' money he is to receive. He must do so in order to beablo to gnage how much he must allow for material and how mnch for wages. If ho does not there-must be pinching, and the.pinohinfi will come on the -wages. The Republican party proposes to settle all questions of fnturo payment by- saying that the dollar received by capital shall be worth 100 eent» rind that the dollar -which labor receives for its honest toil shall be as good-as the dollar •which capital .receives: The money •which the workingman gets as wages is the only reward he has out of that which his labor creates. Surely that would be of the best—stable and unchanging. The worki'jgman cannot gamble on his wa?es. They are not too great at their Dost. Tho dollar of "Wall street, as it has been called, is not any too good for the laborer. He should not be content with less. '_ ' _ Holit by Their Own Petard. One stock argument of the silverites is that silver lias not depreciated in price, bnt that the price of gold has appreciated. This is bad,-very bad, they say. Tho price of gold is too high, much too high they argne. But in the' next broath that they draw .they clamor for the enactment of a law that would, in their opinion, immediately advance the price of silver to $1.29 per ounce—an appreciation of about 50 per cent .at one jump! In short, their whole purpose appears to bo to make silver worth n.s much as gold, or as near that price as possible. If the present price of gold is bad, very bad, for the -country, do not the efforts of Bryan and the free coinage promoters to- put up the price of. silver merit universal condemnation —thuir own nlong with that of the rest of the world? •__ A Slave to C unto in, Sailorman Sewall of Bath, Me,, is a slave to custom. He admits . it himself and laments it. His gold contracts, ho Bays are gold contracts be'caasu it is customary .to make them eo, and has been for 40 years. He' would just as uoon be paid.in silver and, mayhap in lead or leather; but so lone as it is fashionable to insert. the gold clause is inserted, and there's nn.end. of it. Ihe proverb says that one might as well bo out of the world as out of fashion. "Wo now have, ft gold dollar'worth 100 cents. The silver king presents 50 cents' worth of silver and says: -I want Uncle Sam lo lie for-me and say this 50 cents is a dollar, jus* as good as a go d dollar.' He knows if ; he tells the, world .|hat tho world will not bplioye..him; 'therefore; he wants'the, government to do his lying for him, and to stamp these lies indelibly upon his 'silver product. •That, my friends, is the bald proposition which the bonanza king, in fact, makes to the American people, and which the socialistic end of the Demo- .cratic party, under tho lead of Mr. Alt- odd has exalted into a great now issue which is to save the Democratic party from the gloom of long merited defeat. —JohnR.

BRYAN'S INCONSISTENCY. Defenilor the Income Tax, Re Forgvti ma • Important Feature of But Platform. .It will-.be., noticed that Mr. Bryan cannot resist any opportunity to represent well to do .persons as seeking to avoid their jnit and proportionate'share of taxation, and as not entitled to pro- 'tectiou irom'the government unless they are made to pay a special prica for it. Tho Democratic doctrine of oqnal rights ii .unknown to Mr. Bryan.. Thrift, in his view, is ah offense to be punished, an insult or a danger to those "toiling masses" for whom good money is not good enough. He is continually trying to convey,,ibe impression that the. well, to do are especially favored by the government in some way, and he appeals, to the hobo element to"vote- for measures which .will hurt the "money changers." As a matter of foot, Mr. Bryan is engaged in a war upon property, #:d the income tax is only a detail of that war. . . It will strike most people that the old argument in favor of the income tax as payment for federal protection to property is obsnid, not to say . impudent, in the mouth of Mr. Bryan. Ho stands proudly npoh the Chicago platform, which, in tht) part of it especially calculated for Altgeld and Debs, declares, in effect, against federal interference for the purpose of protecting the property of railroad corporation* engaged in, iuterstato commerce or the pioperty which may be destroyed iri.itransit over such railroads whenevoi Debs or some other friend 1 of Mr. Bryan takes it into; his head to get up an insurrection. Mr. Bryan ^pledged himself by accepting the nomination not to protect property un•der snob conditions. . His defense of the income tax as a'speoieii of'payment for federal.protection, therefore, needs'to be revised. He has'forgotten Altgeld and Debs.—New York Sun: The Country That American! Built.

Ther»'-Are Threo-.Those Who Owe, -Who "' n»Te or Who,W»nt Dollars, Bryan ipeaka of "the classes" in this country. It is an nnpopnlar term, since it sugge»t§ the exiitence in the United States of 'the artificial social distinctions of the oVd world. In a different sense, however, ; there ore'olaiieg in th'ia conn- try. They ''are three ' in number— viz, those who owe dollars, those who. have dollars; and those who want to got dol- Very many of those >vho owe. dollars, who havo received and used good 100 cent gold standard' dollars, would like to pay their debts in 63 cent dollars. These would be: repndiators naturally support Bryan: Their position ia logical and Bound, having reference only to tho benefit they expect, for .themselves through the opportunity to cheat their creditors which thVtrfmnpb of Bryon- : Ism would afford them: Those . who possess dollars are opposed to Bryan's .election; if they understand their interests. . Having through the self denial of themselves or their parents obtained » surplus, they do' not want to have that surplus, even though it be a little one, cut •o'fiwn one-half. The 4,810,000 depositors, who havoan average of $371 in gold standard money .in the savings banks of the United States, do not want those, sayings paid back in cheap silver .dollars worth only one-half as much as those deposited. Such men would bo fools to vote for the reduction or depreciation of their little hoard of savings; ' • : • ' • ••' Then there are the raen who hope to get 'dollars whose capital consists in their broad backs and" strong muscles, thefr skiJl, their education, their ability in any direction. These are the workers in every walk of life— laborers, clerks. mechanics, .professional, men. They bave 'their labor; their .skill, .their knowledge, to sell,, and no money is too good for them to receive. Why should they vote to change the value of the dollar in which they are paid from 100 cents in gold to 63 cents in gold? It means, for them, a loss; a wanton sacrifice,,^ vain struggle, to have ;their wages raited at a time ; when the country Is prostrated by the shook incident .to. the change of all values, the destruction of credit; the'disraption of business and a universal paralysis. , Will the wage earners vote for thisT We think not..

Good Enough For the M««»es. It has Le'en discovered that' Mr. Arthur Sswnll inserts the gold clause in contracts for the employment of his vessels not only on foreign but coastwise voyages.
