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 this country." That sounds rather populistic, don't it, friend "Nik?" But now let us turn to the living, foremost among whom i John M.Thurston, United States Sena tor from Nebraska and chairman of the St. Louis republican convention which nominated McKinley.

KlODLK, Attorney for Exvculuis. tary Nebraska Bimetahc League, Lin coln, Neb., among other things he wrote aa follows : I am a profound believer in the ute of both gold and silver as money. I ad vocate the restoration of free coinage be fore any of tbie who are now the self elected champions cf silver in Nebraska had ever opened their lips on the sub ject. At tbe opening cf tho corn palace in Sioux City four years ago, 1 said : " 'At tho risk of being tedious I ask your careful attention to the presentation cf another grave question, which in my judgement, is of euch momentous im portance to the entire west that all cur people should join in vigorous elTorts to secure its early and favorable solu tion.' We of the west must have cheap money. ot money intrinsically cheap, but cheap in interest charges for its uso We are money borrowers and we need vast sums with which to hasten the development of our wonderful resources. "We have good security to give, and neither repudiation nor bankruptcy is to be feared. But the amount of money iu circula 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 scarce," Tho country glows eo fast that the demand increases almost by multiplication. "An inadequate circulating medium adds to the relativo yalue of the dollar and cheapens the relative value of every thing else. "Every debtor must work harder or tell mnrrt nrnnprlv to tiippl ma rhi!7.iimns 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 tho government should provide money enough to supply every demand for its use ho was right. "When he insisted that an irredeem able paper currency was money and would answer the same purpose as gold, he was wrong; and the popular intelli gence sodu discovered the error. "But our mountain ranges produce a metal, which, until a few years ago was money the wide world over. Silver was one of the standard coins of the United States from the birth of independence until its demonetization crept into the statutes of congress, either by mistake or fraud. "I cssert that the American people. and especially tho33 of the west, de mand the free and unlimited coinage of silver." This letter was written by Mr. Thurs ton in July, 1SI'3. You will notice that he too asserts that silver "as demone tized by either a mistake or a fraud. I can give you the volume, part and p3ge of the Congressional Record to prove that Blaine, Allison, Voorhees, Beck, Howe, Garfield, Ilolman, Cannon and others, all claiming that the bill demon etizing silver was passed by trickery, fraud, ora3 Congressman Ilolman said, "a colossal fiwindle." Yet when popu lists asjert the same "it i3 all bosh." as 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 labor and farm products 3nd Watson and Bryan, M. Lemmeu BRIEF MENTION. Demonetization. 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.
