If 50 cent silver dollars should double
the prices of farm products, it is quite
as certain that the prices of all the
products which the farmer consumes
would double in the same way. In that
'case it is not easy to see how the farmer
would gain anything by the free coinage
of silver. Even the wages of labor, the
last to rise in an epoch of depreciated
currency and inflated prices, would

COLONEL INGERSOLL ON tfONEY.
He States Some Plain Truths In Sis Own
Following is an extract from the
speech of Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll
at Chicago on Oct. 8 :
Money that is money needs nn raar-
antee, needs no backer; it is i.: ."ays
good. No matter how many nations go
down to dust, good money remains for
ever the same. We have a man running
for the presidency on three platforms,
with two vice presidents, that say3
money is the creature of law. If the
government can make money hy law,
whv should the government collect
taxes? According to Mr. Bryan, our
fathers were the friends of silver, and
yet our dear old fathers in all their
lives only minted 8,000, 0C0 of these sa
cred dollars. Now see what the ene
mies of silver have done. Since 1873
the enemies of silver have coined over
430,000,'000 of thesa dollars, and yet
silver kept going down. We are'eoin-
ing now over $2,000,000 a month, and
silver keeps going down.
Senator Jones of Nevada, m 1873,
voted for the law of 1873. He said,
from his speech in the senate, that God
had made gold the standard. He said
that gold was the mother of civiliza
tion. Whether he has heard from Goq
since or not I do not know. Bat now he
is on the other side. Senator Stewart of
Nevada was there at the time, but voted
for the act of 1873 and said that gold
was the only standard. He has changed
his mind. No government can afford to
be a clipper on coins.
A great repnblio cannot - afford tc
stamp a lie on silver or gold or paper.
Honest money for an honest people, is
sued by an honest nation. Yon cannot
make a paper .dollar without taking a
dollar's worth of paper. We must have
paper that represents money. I want it
issued by the government, and I want
behind every one of these paper dollars
either a ' dollar in gold or a silver
dollar worth 100 cents, so that every
greenback under the flag can lift up its
hands and swear, "I know that my re
deemer liveth. " That was where I was
20 years ago, and that is where I am
For nations ap.d individuals, at all
times, everywhere and forever, honesty
is the best policy. Better be an honest
bankrupt than a rich thief. Poverty can
hold in its hand the jewel honor a
jewel that ontshines all other gems. A
thousand times better be poor and noble
than rich and fraudulent. Nobody can
be helped by free coinage except the few
people who could pay their debts if they
were willing. Some say that it would
help the mine owners. It would not.
Coining this bullion into dollars would
not increase its value; because you con Id
coin the bullion of the whole world and
the supply would be greater than the
demand. Have freeooinage to-morrow,
and there is not a - silver mine owner
that would make a dollar not one by
changing it into American coin. It
would only be worth what the bullion
is worth in the open market.
. We want good money good, honest
money.'. And there was never any real
prosperity for a nation or an individual
without honesty, without integrity, and
it is our duty to preserve the reputation
of the great republic.
