Ex-Secretary Falrchild ought to
know something about the money ques
tion, and his interview published this
morning, he points out for the con
sideration of Oregon voters some co
gent reasons why this country should
not be permitted to descend to a silver
standard. There have been men In As

the people on this intricate? Issue, but
It may be well doubted if Astorians
ever had the opportunity of hearing
the subject discussed from a better
authority than Mr. Falrchild. We com
mend Mr. Fairchlld's views to the earn

followers of the great Mulllnnlx, late
of Astoria and Portland, but now of
Chicago, and the Weaver-Sovereign
class of philosophical thinkers. It can
possibly do them no harm to read what
Mr. Falrchild thinks about the ques

The sound money element of the Re
publican party triumphed at St. Louis
in compelling the adoption of an un
equivocal declaration in favor of the
existing gold standard. Mr. McKinley
In his short speech of acceptance de
clared that the platform had received
bis careful attention and his unquali
fied approval. Upon the subject of
money he said: "The money of the
United states, and every kind or form
of It, whether of paper, silver or gold.
must be as good as the best In the
world. It must not only be counted at
Its full face value at home, but It must
be counted at par in any and every
commercial center of the world." "The
dollar paid to the farmer, the wage
earner, and the pensioner must con
tinue forever equal In purchasing and
debt paying power to the dollar paid
to any government creditor." If these
conditions are fulfilled the gold stand
ard must be maintained, and, having
pledged himself fully to their fulfill
ment, Mr. McKinley Is pledged une
quivocally to the maintenance of the
existing or gold standard, and, being
an honest man. Is not likely to cheat
the people if elected. With its candi
date thus publicly committed to an
honest financial system the Republican
party Is at last in position to make an
honest battle for honest money and to
Invite to the support of Its candidate

who believes that the American dollar
should possess the full purchasing pow

FREE SILVER, SIXTEEN TO ONE.
The platform of the Democratic par
ty in the campaign of 1SS6 is settled.
Its candidate, whoever he may be,
will be committed to the free coinage of
silver at a ratio of IS to 1, regardless of
International action. We wonder If the
majority of voters who will be depend
ed on to vote for the success of the Chi
cago ticket, and the adoption of this
monstrous fallacy fully realize what it
means. With all the talk so far heard
about the money standards It may be
fairly doubted If three-fourths of the
people who howl for free silver have
ever tried to understand what It means.
It means that any holder of sliver
bullion, silver plate or other articles
of that metal, can take It to the mints
and have it coined into dollars free of
cost, the pur-; silver In which shall be
sixteen tlms the amount of pure gold
In the gold dollar. The government
would have to make these silver dollars
legal tenders for all debts, public and
private, for double the actual value of
the metal that Is In them. As gold
coinage, worth 100 cents on the dollar,
is the established money standard of
this government (as well as of nearly
all other enlightened governments), it
must be evident that the masses of the
people, not having silver bars or plate,
are bound to be cheated with a dollar
worth only 60 cents. The gold coin
when melted Is worth as much as it
was worth before, while the silver dol
lar when melted and sold as bullion
would be worth only half as much as
in the legal-tender coinage. There are
free coinage advocates who state that
the reason stiver Is so low Is because It
was "demonetlted" In ls73, which Is not
the fact. Stiver demonetised .Itself
through Increased production.
; One of the strong argument used
against the Indiscriminate use of the
white metal by speaker on the other
side recently was that "If free coinage
should have the effect of raising the
price of silver to It old relation of
sixteen to one with gold the producer
and owners of silver would alone profit
by the operation. If. on the other hand,
free coinage should not have this effect
the owners and producers of silver
would still be its only beneflclarie. In
the latter case they would have only
to take their silver metal to the mints
and receive It back in coin stamped by
the government a having a legal ten
der capacity to pay debts double Its
real worth. While the masses of the
people the non-owner of silver

themselves to Dip n wakened Intelli
gence, expeiinue and consiiflice of

latnilon of fuels and principles:
For the llrsi llmo since the Civil
War the American people have wit
nessed the calamitous coincidence of
full and unrestrained lvunx-ratle con
trol of thu liovcrnment, It has been
a revoid of utipnrnllrtt Incapacity, ills

rule, in the broad effect of It policy
it has precipitated panic, blighted In
dustry and trade nlth prolonged de
pression, closed factories, reduced work
and wages, halted enterprise and crip
pled American production while stimu
lating foreign production for the Amer
ican market. Every consideration of
pu'!lc safety and Individual Interest
lemamts that the government (halt be
rescued fivm the hand of those who
have shown themielve Incapable of
conducting It without disaster at home
and dishonor abroad, and shall he re
stored to the parly which for thirty
years administered It with unentitled
ucer and prosperity.
A Proteeiivf Tarifl.
We renew and vmphalte our allegl
a nee to the pulley of protection as tht
bulwark of American Industrial Inde
pendence and the foundation of Amer
ican development and prosperity. This
true American policy taxes foreign pro
duct and encourages horns Industry;
It put the burden of revenue on f'r
elgn good. It secures th American
market for the American producer; It
uphold the American standard ot
wage for the American worklngman;
It put the factory by th side of the
farm, and makes the American farmer
less dependent on foreign demand and
price; It diffuses general thrift snd
found the (trrngth of all on the
strength of each. In Its reasonable ap
plication It Is Just, fair, and Impartial,
equally opposed to foreign control and
domestic monopoly, to lectlonal dis
crimination and Individual favoritism.
We denounce the present Democratic
tariff a sectional. Injurious to the pub
lic credit and destructive to buslnes
enterprise. We demand such eo,ultubl
turiff on foroign Import which com
Into competition with American pro
dud as will not only furnish adequate
revenue for the necessary expense of
the government, but will protect Amer
lean labor from dcgredatlon to the
wage level of other land. We are not
pledged to any particular schedule.
The question of rates is a practical
guestlon, to tie governed by the condl
lions of the time and production; the
ruling and uncompromising principle
Is the protection and development of
American labor and Industry. The
country demands a right settlement
nnd then It wants rest.
Ket'iiruriiy Willi Other Nations.
We believe the repeal of the reel
prM.lty arrangements negotiated by the
Iti.st lii publican administration was a
nntionitl culnmlly, ami we demand
their renewal and extension on such
terms as will equalize our trsde with
other nations, remove the restrictions
which now obstruct the sals of Amer
lean products In the port of other
countries and secure the enlarged mar
kets of our farms, forests and factories
Protection and reciprocity are twin
measures of Republican policy, and go
bund in hand. Democratic rule han
recklessly struck down both, and both
must be re-established. Protection for
what we produce, free admission for
the necessaries of life which wa don't
produce, reciprocal agreements of mu
tual Interest which gain open markets
for us In return for our open market to
others. Protection builds up domestic
Industry and trade and secures our
own market for ourselves. Reciprocity
builds up foreign trade and finds an
outlet for our surplus.
Protection to Sugar Producers.
We condemn the present administra
tion for not keeping faith with the
sugar producers of this country. The
Republican party favors such protec
tion as will lead to the production on
American soli of all the sugar the
American people use, and for which
they pay other countries more than

mine and the field, as well as to those
of the shop and the factory to hemp

try of sheep husbandry, as well as to

promise the most ample protection.
We favor restoring the early Ameri
can policy of discriminating duties for

and III protection of our shipping hi

ed to secure the fulfillment of the
pledges mad to them In the dark days
of th country's peril. W denounce
the practice of the pension bureau so
recklessly and unjustly curried on by
th preient administration, of reducing
pension and arbitrarily dropping
names from the rolls, as deserving the
sevaruat condemnation of the American
Our foreign policy should be at all
time firm, vigorous and dignified, and
all our Interests In the western hemis
phere carefully watched and guarded.
The Hawaiian Island ahould be con
trolled by the United Slate and no for
eign power should be prrmltetd to In
terfere with them. Th Nicaragua
Canal should be built, owned and op
erated by the United State, and by
the purchase of the Danish Island we
should tecure a proper and much-needed
naval station In the West Indira.
The massacre In Armenia have
aroused the deep sympathy and Just
Indignation of the American people,
and we believe that the t'nlted Slates
hould exercise all the Influence It ran
properly exert to bring the atrocltle
to an end. In Turkey, American real
dent have been exposed to the gravest
danger and American property de
stroyed. There and everywhere Amer
ican citizens and American property
must be absolutely protected at all
hazards and at any cost.
We reassert the Monroe dot-trine In
Its full extent and reaffirm the right of
the I'nulleil Htutes to give the doctrine
effect by responding lo the appeals of
any American slate for friendly Inter
vention In case of European encroach
merit. We have not Interfered, and
shall not Interfere, with the existing
possessions of any European power In
this hemisphere, but those possessions
must not, on any pretext, be extended
We hopefully look forward to the
eventual withdrawal of th European
powers from this hemisphere, and the
ultimate union ot all the English
speaking part of the continent by the
free consent of Its Inhabitants.
Independence of Cuba.
From the hour of achieving their own
Independence the people of the United
States have regarded with sympathy
the struggles of other American peoples
to free themselves from European dom
ination, We watch with deep und abid
ing interest the heroic battle of the Cu
ban patriots against cruelty and op
pression, and our best hopes go out for
the full success of their determined con
test for liberty.
The government of Spain, having lost
control of Cuba and being unable to
protect the property or lives of resi
dent American citizens or to comply
with Its treaty obllgatlones, we believe
that the government of the United
States should actively use It Influence
and good offices to restore peace and
give Independence to the Island.
Enlargement of the Navy.
The peace and security of the repub-
Ilo and the maintenance of Its rightful
Influence among the nations ot the
earth demand a naval power commen
surate with Its position and responsi
