FALSE BY SIS TOR Yi
The declaration of Mr. Bryan,
made at Madison Square August
12th and reiterated many times, that
the opening of the mints to the free
coinage of silver would bring the
price of silver up to $1.29 per ounce,
is proven untrue by the history of
silver in this country and in other
countries. The silver dollar, as
made by the act of 1732, was worth
less in the market than a gold dollar,
and gold went out of circulation.-
Our silver dollars were even super
ceded by the worn, and therefore less
valuable, silver coins of other nations,
and in 1806 President Jefferson or
dered a suspension of the coinage of
the dollars. The undervaluation of
silver by the law of 1792 was less
than one-sixteenth. To remedy the
difficulty the law of 1 834 changed
the ratio to 16 to 1. This ratio
slightly undervalued the silver, and
it in turn went out of circulation, the
commercial ratio being about 1 5 to
1. The act of 1837 changed the rel
ative fineness of the two metals, so
that the ratio became 15.98-to 1.
Still silver continued to be exported.
In 1853 the free coinage of coins
less than the dollars was stopped,
(This was a half "crime"") and the
amount of silver in these smaller
coins was reduced, making them
about equal to their bullion value.
In the latter part of the fifties both
silver and gold went out of circula.
tion, in the face of the less desirable
paper currency which came into
The same old law that the cheaper
money will replace the dearer is older
than the boy orator, and much more
constant. We could not change the
value of silver from 1792 to 1834 by
the free coinage of silver at '15 to 1
when the real value was 16 to 1.
it reasonable to suppose we can d
it when the value is only 32 to 1 ? .
'Open our mints, a demand will
"be created for all the silver, and
there being no silver upon the mark
et which cannot be converted into
money, there will be no silver which
can be purchased lor less than $1.29
an ounce in gold." . Thus said Bryan
at Kansas City. A more ridiculous
assertion never escaped a Populist
lips. . ""
At a recent meeting of Democrats
and Populists in this city,-called to
organize a silver club, a number of
prominent Democrats were present

noyer to The Dalles to win followers
to the cause, was under discussion,
when a prominent Populist, who evi
dently thinks Pennoyer is less friend
ly to the cause than he pretends, ex
pressed the real situation of the
Democratic party as follows: "Mr.
Chairman, I . suggest that we get
somebody here who can catch the
Republicans; we've got all the Dem
ocrats already." The Democrats
looked as a dog feels when it is being
wagged by its tail.
The farmers of Klickitat are not
likely to bring much wheat to The
Dalles this fall. The road from the
river to the foot of the hill is in very
bad condition, and as the -report is
generally circulated that the boat
company has entered into a traffic
arrangement with the railroad, there
is no encouragement to " make the
long haul through the sand. Fifty
dollars expended in covering the
sand with straw woula obviate one
difficulty. A positive and unequiv
ocal denial on the part of -the boat
ompany of the rumor would lemove
the remaining difficulty. The city
cannot afford to lose the business,
and the boat company cannot afford
to lose the good will of the farmers.
