FORAKER ATTACKING MC
seekers will '.'define" himself upon
squarely and specifically. No man
knows better than Foraker that a sus
picion that McKinley; held the Foraker
view on silver would handicap him in
the convention, while at the same time
he is aware that McKinley dare not for
mally disclaim each a sentiment. The
Foraker outbreak must prove seriously
embarraesing to McKinley, and those
who know Foraker best believe he knew
this and intended this.
Joseph B. Foraker, says the Globe
Dem'ocratj immediately after his elec
tion to the senate a few days ago to euc
ceed Calvin S. Brice, made a speech to
the legislature, in which he used these
words among others: "I believe also
in bimetallism. I believe the worl
made a mistake when it demonetized eil
ver. I sincerely hope some safe
way may be found for the restoration of
silver to its rightful place alongside of
gold as a money of ultimate redemption.
I shall favor every measure calculated,
in my judgment, to bring about that re-
Bult, subject alwys, however, to the con
dition that it provides for the mainte'
nance of the parity of the two metals.
This extract is from the speech as given
in the Cincinnati "Times-Star," a paper
very friendly to Foraker. Some of
the other reports made Foraker use
harsher language in condemnation oi
"demonetization," and appeared to
make a more direct and specific refer
ence to the "crime of 1873."
The last clause of this extract may
seem to take the free silver sting out of
it. It is a straddle and a scuffle, yet it
is not quite so skillful as the work iD
this line which is done by some of the
state and national conventions. It is
not the sort of an utterance that John
Sherman would make in this exigency.
The man making it could certainly never
be a member in good standing of the
Hayes branch, which was the dominant
Cranch of the , Ohio Republican party.
It is evident that the man who used
these words thinks'that .the act of Feb
ruary 12, 1S73, dropping the standard
silver dollar from the list of coins to be
issued thereafter from the United States
mints was a terrible blow to the coun
try's prosperity, and to the cause of
sound finance. Of course the real "de
monetization" was brought about by the
legislation of 1834-7, which made silver,
at the new ratio, worth more as bullion
than as coin, and consequently kept sil
ver, except in trifling amounte, away
from the mints, while the law of 1873
was merely the legal recognition of
something which had been a physical
fact for nearly forty years. It is clear,
however, that the senator elect thinks
the law of 1873 was the greatest legisla
tive crime of the century.
But why did Foraker bring up the sil
ver question at all? Silver is not an is
sue at the present time, and will not,
outside of the mining states, figure in
any shape in the presidential or con
gressional canvass of 1896.- There must
be some reason for this outbreak which
- does not appear upon the surface. For
aker is something more than a political
"enfant terrible."- It would be a mis
take to attribute his periodical irrup
tions to mere moral perversity or physi
cal exuberance of wantonness. There is
method in all of them. Foraker is not
a reckless and rattle-bra'ined blunderer,
tJut is one of the shrewdest politicians of
the time. ; He is well aware that every
presidential aspirant, and McKinley in
particular, is taking especial pains to
dodge the silver question. That is the
one subject that none of the presidency-
