Free Coinage Touches Those Neces

This id a proposition tfbiuli touchea
the bread aud butter of tbc majority of
all the American people, for the watce

of our total population. Not lees than

of our people, using round figures, stand
today in tho shadow of a tremendous
loes, which will surely fall upon them if
tho threat of free silver coinage is car
ried out. The payments to the wage
earners of the United .Status are reason
ably estimated by experts to bo fully
$4,000,000,000 ajyear. Four thousand
millions a year are owing to labor on the
gold standard. Wage earners are a
"credit class" to that extent. The basis
of this estimate is the fact that there are
-0,000,000 wage workers in this .country,
and at an average of $200 a year each
the grand total of their annual earnings
The last census shows that the total
valuation of the country, including its
property and wealth ol all kinds, was
iM.OJO.COO.OOO in 1S00. The mortgage
debt of the country wag at the Eame time
in the neighborhood of 2,500,O00,00O.
The amount ot mortgage debts annually
paid off does not exceed $500,000,000.
Therefore it plainly appears that eight
times as large an amount is paid every
year for wages in the United States as is
annually paid in the cancellation of
mortgage indebtedness. Assume then,
with Mr. Bryan, that free silver coinjge
would make it easier to pay debts, what
will that do to the M.OOO.OOO wage earn
ers of the country if the mortgage debt
ors can only be relieved at the expense
of a Iocs to them of at least one-third

cent, in order that people who are in
debt may get a shave of .the same ex
tent on an annual mortgage payment of
lets than $500,000,000. That is the
Bryan party's avowed purpose. "The
greatest good to the greatest number'
has long been bell to be a sound princi
ple of popular government. YVhy, then,
should '.'0,000,000 wage earners be asked
to accept $1,333,000,000 lets per year for
their laoor, in order that not moro than
one-twentieth of their number of mort'

discount on their just debts cf less than
$iur,tAW,wj a year.' 11 tne wage earn
ers can clearly sec that this is what is
proposed to be done by theJBryan party
they will never consent to it.
Hut it s necessary not mereiy to as
sert but 13 prove to our worttr.g people
tnat free silver coinage, if it comes, will
reduce their wage3 by at Ictst one
third. They have only to read the
speeches of Mr. Bryan, Mr. Stewart, Mr.
Jone., Mr. Teller, or Mr. Daniel to find
fur themselves that one thing is con 13

vocate that the prices of all crops and
staple products, except gold, will be
raised immediately upon the opening of
our mints to the unlimited coinage of the
wh.te metal. Let us grant for the sake
ol discussion, that this prophesy would
prove true that food, clothing, fuel,
house rentals and all 'necessaries' ot life
would advance in cost from 30 to 10 per
cent. Mr. Brvau eays that tbey would
advance 50 per cent. That is. he prac
tically said so in Madisou .Square gar
den, when he declared his belief that
free coinage would bring the market
price of silver all over the world to
double its present figure, and that all
other prices would rise with it and in
the same measure. Nowhere has he
said, and no free silver champion has
anywhere said, that W3ges, which is the
price of labor, will advance in like de

Bryan wero to assure bun that hand m

and all his family supplies. But the
fraudulent promise held out to the

The "Poor nan's Dinner Pail."

about the "poor man's dianer pail" as

law as it was beforo or has been since.
Facts and actual experience have served
to nail one more free-trade He. Cut
there ia another re-tson why the "poor
man's dinner pail" has been dropped
from discussion. Ever sincu the elec
tion of 1S02 gavo the government into
the hands of the free-trade parly the
"poor man's dinner pail" has been a
ticklish subject. Any niemtion ot it
serves to remind the laboring man of
his prosperous times under the McKin
ley law when he needed a dinner pail to
carry his dinner with him to hia work.
Under Free-Trade Tariff Kcforni, with
no work to go to, the poor man has not
had so much need of a dinner pail. lie
has been more troubled about how to
get a dinner than about the price of his
dinner pail. But "there's a guda time
coming" again. Dinner pails will be
plentiful enough under President Mc
Kinley and a protective tariff and they
will be of good American tin, tco, made
by American workingmen.
'Though not a pleasant speaker, his

points are all clear, and every word he
utters bears upon tbe doctrines he

But iu establishing this ratio they erred
by over-valuing the silver. The result
proved that tbe silver dollar was worth
moro as bullion than the silver
dollar, the ratio of France, being lol.2
to one, aud henco silver coin disap
peared from circulation. That is, the
ounce of gold would buy up 15';. ounces
of silver as bullion. The purcbaeer
would ship it to France and get one-half
ounce more silver (in France! for his
ounce of gold than in the United States.
In other words the gold dollar would
purchase nearly 50 cents worth more of
silver bullion than it was worth as coin,
because it was worth more as bullion
than as United State cola. And as a '
consequence, United Slates silver coins
went out ot circulation, and, to try and
stop silver from leaving the country,
President Jefferson in lS0t stopped the
free coinage of the silver dollars by his
own executive mandate, aud for 30 years
there was not a dollar of silver coined ex
cept subsidiary silver, vis: halves, quar
ters and dimes. In 1S10 the banks ot
Iho United States imported $7,000,000 of
specie from Europe "to relieve the
Btraiued situation,'.' at that time. In
1S34 tho ratio was changed to 10.002 of
of silver to ono of gold. That ratio W3S
again changed in 1S37 to 15.0SS to 1 , its
present ratio, usually termed 10 to 1.
