by your own adulation.
" rUe praeenl eoreUry oleUle, wbo
(leclarea it to be nobody 'e busiuees bow
be voted lu 13'.6, aod wbo bas jiiet is
sued a blograpbical laudation at lo cents
a laudation, ssys bis party Uori 'the
coinago ol silver on an equality with
gold,' aod tben proceeds ti declare in
favor of a ratio tbat discriminates against
sliver l'l tliuts over.
'Tliere uever bas been any 'cijualily'
between silver and gold, either in price
or aolgU aluce Ibe ratio of 1 to t was de
parted from ; suub 'eiuslity' bas not ex-
UiJ fjr tbousaodf of yeare. There is
nothing 'rual' lu a law Ibat reiuirca 10
tiruea as much silver to be put into a sil
ver dollar as gold in a gold dollai, unless
you admit that, when you accept any ra
tio l til you tuut accept oue that recog
nizes relative value of tbe two metals,
ounce for ounce, but you do not do
ilile; from your highest to your lowest
oracles you declare that the law gives
money all t'jt value It bas, aod you then
dc!iiio iolavorof gul l, as against sil
ver 10 times ever, If you believo (bat
ui juey gt-ts lla eole value from the law,
why dont you aak for one that gives sil
ver an 'eiuul'. cbaucewitb gold, sure
enough ? Iu oilier words, don't you
know that h hen yon clamor for the ra
tio uf 1') to 1, you recognize Bjuie superi
or force, siiincthibg above the law?
Now this a fat I, l!iat the law never tre
ated the ratio of 10 to I. nor any other
ratio; it euu If rtcoguir.ed it hh an al
ready existing fact. Here ia h here all
silver men, from the gentlrmeu from
Mexico, Mr. li'yjo, down, get the cart
before the lurw and become swamped
in a hoindoes confution of tluking sand.
' All eilvi-r ,uicu contend that if our
mints were throau wideopeo lo silver at
the ratio if Mtol, tbo rice of silver
would at onre- again reach ft. 2D an
ouuee, tliui i-Uiul declaring their be
lief Unit the price ie used by the ratio,
when, in fact, at everybody should
know, tho ratio in alt skos baa been fixed
by tho p ice ; iudced, the latio bas uever
been anything but an expression of tbe
relative prico of the two metals. Now,
since tliere can be no rational attempt to
gaiusay this proposition, it is easily un
derstood that no 'flxed' rstio can ever be
'fixed,' fur tbe reason that no fixed
price fur silver can be Qxed. Iodeed,
Ihero is nothing with tbe wbolo subject
tbat Is fixed except the notion in some
men's beads tbat tbe ratio uf 10 to 1
came directly from tbe band of God, and
that tho first chapter ot Genesis should.
be revised eo as lo resd : 'lo tbe begin
niug created tbe heavens, then the
rstio ol lii to 1, and afterwards tbo
"liul Ibia. plank was put into tbe
fusiouist platform to catch discontented
voters, wbo are not populists. You talk
to a populist about tbe free coinage
plank, and be will say: "Oh, you for
get Ibe pltuk which declares for money
to be issued directly to tbe people,
Tbey are not only in favor of a 'flexi
ble' curreucy ; but are decidedly partial
to a flexible platform ; the populist finds
bis comfort in tbe llexlblo plank, and
tbe silver man anchors bis restless soul
ou tbe declaration for 10 to 1. Yon
catch tbe silver man on his favorite
plank, and be tells you be is Dr. Jekyll
himself ; but it is no uncommon thing to
find bint hobnobbing on the 'flexible
plank with a populist, at which time he
boars a wonderful resemblance to a veri
table tuonetaiy Mr. Hyde.
I UK r .UtMgltS TO US IOOLEU.
"But these fantastic pranks bslore
high heaven do not serve to fool the
fanners any longer. The only resson
ever given for clamoring for tho reopeu
lng of the mints to free coinago of silver
and tbe 'issuing' of 'flexible' money ill
reclly to tbe peoplo was as a remedy for
'felling prices'; but there. are no falling
prices now ; noue anywhere. All tbe
staple pruldols of Oregon farmers have
risen lu pi ico during tbe past two years
from 50 t ) ?00 per ceut ; uo one will deuy
it, liut when we duro to rejoice over
the improved condition of tbo couutiy
and point to tho increased price ol
wheal as one of the uittuy evidences of
our claim, you always retort by saying
tbe populitit posltiou thst prices sre
made by tbe amount in circulation is
still maintained by your cliiiu that tbe
doubled price of wheat is due to tbe
'famine lu ludia.' liut just buw tbe
'famine iu ludia' could nearly double
tho price ol wool, Increase- tbe price ol
ebcep HOO per ceut, and more, place the
price of csttlo atiulutely out of sight,
slid put tho price ol nearly every other
farm product on a payiug baiis, would
puwlo the iugeuuity eyou of u populiut.
Llutwu will accept the famlne-iu-Iudia
theory, I know veiy well that during
tbe period of low pi ices we republicans
tiled to make you see tbe fact tint low
prices were caused by an oversupply i f
the articles afTected, but you gave ui no
beailng, scouting tbo. claim altogether,
aud contended before the people of Ore
gon everywhere H al prices were low be
cause there was such a contraction of tbe
currency Hist prices bad to be lo as a
coiiar-fiuence). Tin hilltop and valleys
rrsotindril a Hit the impulistic cry thst
prices si made by the amount of mon
ey iu circulation, and tbat prices would
continue low until tbe 'money of the
constitution' was restored.
"You know there la nothing provoke
a fustonist so much even a forionlat
farmer as to get a higher . price for a
farm product Uils year tbao be got for
the same pre duct last year; soiu bis
frensy to explain tbe rise in wbsal with-
out weskenlog tba sleliog of bia party
be on wittingly shouts 'Famine In India !'
Bat tbe shivering fuslonist wbo takes
refuge behind .the 'famine-in-Iodia'
plea limply aays in the vtry plainest ot
English words tbat lire supply of wbest
rushes tbe price, after all. This bas al
ways been Ibe republican position, and
every time a populist brother comes at
me with a reference to tbe famine in
India, I extend him both . my Lands, as
be steps upon one of the troadeel planks
of the repupublican platform. And tbls
Itaa all happened under tbe gold stand
"Now, since 'falling prices' the only
reason given even by yourselves tor be
ing born as a party -bas been removed,
why not vuluotarily disband, rote tbe
republican ticket and help ns maintain
the improved condition which ie now
blessing our beloved country?
"Your cry for 'bimetalism' no longer
fools anybody, The law you are de
manding w ould never give bimetalism and
never did. A law tbat does not insure
tbo concuireut circulation of both gold
and silver coins among tbe common peo
plo is not the law I want, because I be
lieve in a bimetalism the'- will mean
something. Wheal look at Mexico and
see thai, uuder a free-coinage law, not
any gold whatever circulates, then I
know that my kind of bimetalism does
not prevail ttitrj. and the same condi
tion is seen iu all free-coiuage countries
tbe world over, A bimetalism tbat stops
at the uiiuti aod ncrcr reachoi tbe com
mon people may suit our fusjouist friends,
but it is not tho kind tuat will help ura
utr any other man who belong ti tbe
'plain-people' class of our etiuens.
"There is not a g il J e'.andarJ ciunlry
anywhere that duet no! - use iiearly or
quite as much silver as gold. Tbie fact
is not denied by anybody, t$ there ia
nothing for my friend of praiical bimet
alism to do but t) suppoit tbe only sys
tem which produces it. A thousand tba
ories ran be exploded by oue stubborn
fact, and this fact remains undisputed,
tbst tbe law you sre asking for never
produces the system you want, so we are
opjweed to your law. I would rather
have tbe system we want, witbont tbe
law, than to bave tbe law you want,
without the system. In other words, I
would rather be practial Ihsu visionary.
Neither does youi allegation that our
financial system is copied from England
any longer serve to frighten people. It
would mean notbiug,even if it were true,
which it is not. Many good things have
come to us from Ijogland; tbe very
language we uje in our denomination of
'goldbug' comes from England, and
every tusionist in Oregon ought to be
ashamed of himeelt for not employing
in this patriotic pastime our purely
American Chinook, and prove his inde
pendenco of the 'British yoke.' There
is no word in any langusge 00 earth, and
never will be, that is ball so -express ive
as tbe purely American word 'cultue,'
and just how any silver man can refuse
10 use It and employ in its stead such a
distinctively English word as 'plutocrat
and afterward look tbe Stars and Stripes
In the face, is beyond comprehension.
"If it should ever become necessary to
look to.a foreign country for a financial
system to copy from, I would prefer to
go to our mother country, with her in
telligence and commercial supremacy,
than to Mexico, with her half-civilisa
tion and 15 per capita money circulation,"
