Editok I'laisdealek: Perhaps you
will find space for a few words in reply to
Messrs. "Sook Nik" and "New Deal."
I mentioned Blaine's name as having
been an advocate of the free coinage of
silver because in a speech delivered in
the U. S. Senate he spoke as follows :
"I believo gold and silver coin to be
the money of the constitution; indeed
the money of the American people an
terior to tho constitution which the great
organic law recognized as quite inde
pendent of its own existence. No power
was conferred cn congress to declare
that cither metal should not be money.
Uongrets has, therefore, in my judg
ment, no power to demonetize gold; no
power lo demonetize either, than to de
monetize both. If, tberefoie, silver has
been demonetized, I am in favor of re
iDonetiz'iDg it. If its coinage has been
prohibited, I am in favor of ordering it
to be resumed."
Does that sound like "Bound money"
or freo coinage? But now listen to John
A. Logan :
"By a trick, and I use that word be
cause it is a proper word in this in
stance, by a trick of legislation in 1S73
the people of this country were deprived
of tho right of paying their debts in sil
ver dollars." And then the lion-
bearted veteran went on to explain how
that "trick" tras accomplUbed. He
called it a tuck. Populists call it a
1 lime. And still further on General
I-ogan raid :
'I know that it is sometimes the case
that the yoice of the people of this coun
try is stifled by legislation, Etifled by
their own representatives. Now, when
the people of this country demand that
the silver dollar that we produc? in our
country 6hall bo restored as it stood up
to 1S73 or 1874, they are not to be allowed
that either. Why? Not becauEu they
do not think it 13 right; not because tbey
do not demand it; not because it is not
right; but because, if I may make such a
remark, a minority, a few men in this
country demand nothing out gold, so
that they may enrich themselves upon
the distress and poverty of the people of
That sounds rather populistic, don't it,
friend "Nik?" But now let us turn to
the living, foremost among whom i

judgement, is of euch momentous im

tion is becoming inadequate for the
daily commercial necessities of the
countrv. It is almost impossible today
for our local banks to accommodate their
regular customers at 10 per cent. They
have not a dollar to loan on the best pa
per to anyone else.
In popular parlance, "money is

Curbing than he otherwise would.
"The borrower is compelled to pay a
higher rato of interest, and, worst of all,
capital is withdrawn from trade, manu
facture and all kinds of enterprise, for
the capitalist will not risk his moucy in
uncertain ventures, when he can safely
loan it where it pays better.
"At such times, too, the millionaire
gamblers on AVall street can so "corner"
all the cash in eight ns to jeopardize the
credit of everybody else.
A stringent money market closes many
a shop door and rob3 thousands of hon
est men of an opportunity to earn their
daily bread. It fostrrd combinations
and trusts, it destroys competition, it
makes tho rich richer and the poor poorer.
"On tho other baud, with plenty of
money iu circulation, tho interest rate
falls, debts can be more easily paid,
credit is restored, trade revives, manu
factuics increase, communities flourish
and labor is in demaud. All this hap
pens without injury lo anyone.
"Money ought to bo so plonty in tho
United States that it can bo borrowed
for any legititualo purpose at 3 or 4 per
cent. The man who has more of it than
he can profitably use ought not to com
plain of either of those ratrs.
"Think what 4 per cent money would
mean to the west! It would build a
manufactory by every waterfall, double
the cultivated acreage of every county,
put new life into every entci prise, aston
ish the census of every city, lower every
transportation rate, add to price of eyery
farm product and kindle the fire of
happiness on every hearthstone.
"When tli3 greenbacker declared that

"When he insisted that an irredeem

would answer the same purpose as gold,
he was wrong; and the popular intelli

"But our mountain ranges produce a

Mr. Tongue expressed himself in hia
courthouse spjech. Now, who was at
the bottom of the conspiracy? Who
benefitted by it?
But "Sook Nik" in claiming that the
present gold standard currency in con
junction with a protective tariff will
raise the wages of laboring.men "so they
can afford to pay the farmer a high price
for the necessaries of life" is treading on
dangerous ground. Because when yon
talk about a high price for the necessaries
of life you are advocating a scheme that,
according to "Sound Money" parlance,
is going to rob savings bank depositors,
life insurance iolicy holders and pen
sioners of oce-half the value of their
dollars by compelling tbem to part
with their dollars for less than they can
buy with them at present. Siys Mc
Kinley, "If under free coinage the dol
lar is worth just as much a? at present,
it will be just as hard to get possession of
it as now. If it is worth only 53 cents,
or any per cent less than 100 per cent
v meaning present valuel then it is a dis
honest dollar designed to cheat some'
bauy. I quote Irom memory. Anu as
your dollar won't buy as much labor or
farm products as the present dollar, it
would not stand gold standard muster,
Higher wages aud farm prctlucts neces
sarily imply cheaper dollars, because a
certaiu number of dollars will then not
buy as much labor and farm products as
at present. Isn't that sound logic'
John Sherman in his Columbus speech
didn't want high-priced necessaries of
life. He said, "That is the best dollar
that will buv the greatest quantity of
fcod and clothing." Now, a great quan
titv of lood and clothing for a dollar
means food aud clothing "dirt cheap,"
and cheap fco.1 and clothing is insepar
ably connected with cheap labor.
Bourk Cochran iu his sound money
speech entitled "In opposition to repa
diation" used this sentence: "There is
no way in which I can be admitted to
share of (.iod's bounty except through a
fall in the prices of the necessaries of
life." That's plain! Up with the dol
lar, down with tho prices, is tho sound
money slogan. Givo us20-cent wheat,
10-ccnt oats, 5-cent potatoes, 3 cent wool,
2 cent hops and 1-cent pork and the
sound money millenitim is at hand
Mr. "Sook Nik, it you really are in
favor of higher prices, you had better
get out of that sound money crowd, be
cause they'll bounce you it ever you ad
vocatc high prices for anything except
the dollar. Their tariff cry is only
sham. Youra for cheaper dollars, dearer

and Bryan, M. Lemmeu
Our populist and free silver friends
have a great deal to say about "the
crime of 1S73" which act of that date,
they say, demonetized silver by lestrict
ing the legal tender power of silver to
five dollars in auy one payment. They
never mention the act of 1S53 which
limited the legal lender of subsidiary
silver and reduced the number of grains
in the half-dollar to 192, thus making
the dollar by halves ouly 3S4 grains
whereas the dollar coin hud 412,' grains,
a difference of 41.5 grains. This was
done for the purpose of keeping subsid
iary coins at home. Its bullion value as
an articlo of conuncrco was above its
coinage value and it was m consequence
leaving the country. So congress re
dttced its ratio and made it a legal tender
for live dollars in one payment. This
was tho crime of 1833, but our freo sil
vcritea have no words of eoudouumtiou
of that crime.
