Home of Mr. Hryao'g democratic
friends and associates who have bad
practical business ei perlence in Mexico
tin not agree with tbe glowing plctore
which he brought back from tbat coun
try, nor do they agree with bis theory
that tbe free coinage of silver Is responsi
ble for whatever of apparent or real pros
perity exists tbere. Ei-Coogreasmao
McHhaoe. wbo formerly represented tbe
Omaha, Nebraska, district ia congress,
but wbo now bas large mining interests
in Mexico and spends much of bis lime
tbere, says tbat bis friend Mr. Bryan is
entirely mistaken lo tbe conclusion at
which be arrives. Considering tbe fact
tbat Mr. McShane is a democrat, a fel-low-Nebraskan
with Mr. Bryan, and bas
bad practical business experience in
Mexico for about as many years as Hry
an spent uays mere in bis recent trip,
hie conclusions concerning matters so
elaborately discussed by Mr. Bryan on
his return borne from the land of tbe
4 Veen t dollar are interesting. Mr, Mc
Shane bas been spending a few days
here renewing bia acquaintance with
members of congress, and in a conversa
tion regarding Mr. Bryan'e recent utter
ances regarding Mexican prosperity, he
"It is of this sort : Tbe government is
largely back of it, and to tbe paternal
fostering of tbe Diaz administration it is
mainly doe. The government subsidizes
breweries, railroads, industrial plants,
and aids in every way to build up tbe
material resources of the country. Mon
ey is used with a liberal band, and as a
consequence tbere ia much activity and
great apparent prosperity. Tbe fact
that Mexico is on a silver basis does not
figure; it can't help being on tbat kind
of a batis, out I should be sorry fo see
the United Statea resort to soy such
"Ten years of experience in tbat coun
try bas forever set me against the adop
tion of a monetary S)steniwbicb ia not
ouly in disrepute among the leading na
tions of the world, but which is about to
be discarded by countries like Japan,
Brazil, and some of tbe smaller Spanish
American governments tbat were former
ly on a silver basis. Tbe masses in
Mexico are in a worse condition than 1
trust will ever befall our population.
This I can explain by referring to mat
ters tbat have come under my personal
"When the Sherman purchasing act
was in force, some seven years ago, sil
ver was worth $1.21, and a United
States dollar was worth hi Mexico 100
cents io Mexican money. The dollars ol
the two countries were on a parity. At
Ibis time we employed about 300 men in
our mines, tbeir pay ranging from f 1 to
12.50 per day. It took approximately
110,000 a month to meet the pay-roll.
The money to cancel this expense was
shipped from Omaha, and it was ex
changed for $10,000 of Mexican coin.
We operated general merchandise stores
along with our mining concern, ana, at
the time I speak of, sold to our Mexican
employees bacon for 20 cents a pound.
" What are tbe conditions today ? We
still hire 300 men and give them exactly
tbe eerme scale--of wage - lha! - ebtaiosd
prior to the slump in silver caused by
tbe repeal of the purchasing clause ol
tbe Sherman act. Our pay-roll still ag
gregates 110,000 a month. To meet this
we have shipped us a like sum of United
States money, and here is where the
poiot of difference comes in. Instead of
exchanging that amount at our bank for
its nominal equivalent we get for it not
$10,000, but 22,O0O of Mexican money.
We have here made a clear gain of $12,
000. Our employes still render ui 100
cents' worth of work, for which they
used to get 100 cents, and do yet as far
as the name goes, but in reality thoy re
ceive less than half of what should be
theirs, seeing that the Mexican coin in
which they are paid bas shrunk to less
tban half of its former value.
"3ut there is more still. When tbe
Mexican miner goes to buy bacon he
finds that in tendering payment be can
not buy it with depreciated roonev for
20 cents a pound ; the price now is 45
cents. It would still be so if he could
tender a dollar as good as that given him
for bis labor at tbe time of tbe repeal of
the Sberman law. The $12,000 1 spoke
of simply comes out of the labor of tbe
country, and when tbe toiling class ol
any nation is forced to such a condition
it is stretching a point to call ibe people
prosperous. If the fair and right thing
were done by these hard-working tnioeie
tbeir wages would be doubled. The
man tbat now gets $2 a day is justly en
titled to $4, but labor will bring only
what Drice lis fixed in market, like any
commodity, and employers are not yet
far enough advanced in philanthropy to
voluntarily give more than tbe cutic
"So the talk about the prosperity of
Mexico in so far as it applies to the vast
body of ita citizens the common people
is a myth. If there is prosperity at
all it is not due to the silver standard,
but in spite ot it.
Congressman Tongue Is all Right.
Relative to bis positiou ou Cubau af
fairs, Representative Tongue iu Con
"The proposition before tbe house is
to acknowledge the belligerency of the
Cuban insurgents sua declare the neu
trality of the United States. This is
mere empty nothingness. It would pre
vent the Uuited States from selling arms
aud auiuuition and food to the Cuban
iusurgeuts. It would subject our vessels
to the right ot search long before reach'
iog Cubau waters, It would absolve tbe
Spanish govoj-nmeut from claims for
damage to the lives and properly of
Aiuoncau citizens. It ia much safer to
leave the management of . diplomatic
matters with the administration. The
president sincerely desires Cuban free
dom. He has secured tbe liberation of
every Araericau citizen detained as a
prisoner. He bas stopped the policy of
starvation and Induced tbe Spanish gov
ernment lo relieve the suffering coucen
trados. He has stopped barbaiio war
fare, has induced i he Spanish govern
ment to conduct the war ou humane
methods aud to offer Cuban autonomy.
His success should luspire confidence.
If the war does not cease within a reas
onable liuie, then I believe we should
nut pass empty resolutions, but fay to
