A fexv ev iiins before the eliflioii
In Ohio John Sherman made a fi-ech
in C'lntlunattl, in which he said tlil
of uioney :
Kut the rc-ult of that xva- that xve
finally did tiii-pend the ptirchaseof
Sniietim. s it is siid wo demone
tize silver by this action. No, no,
my countrymen, I am as linn a be
liever in silver as 1 am lit gold. I
want both metals, ami phiity of both
1 do not want one to be so large in
amount that It will demonetize nnd
drive out the other. I xvant them
like txxo well-iii:i!ehil Imr-is iliw-
iny side by i-ide, rtu h shoxxim; In
step and cadi iii:iviu hi- part ol
the li4d. . It i Mlid wh".l f- refllsi
to buy ilvcr xve are tfoiii-j to p-t rid
of Mixer. Why, as 1 have said ls
fore, xve have i;T7,immi,immi silver dol
lars, cillier coimsl or iu the treasury
or in circulation, or in bullion sutll
cient to make lsii.iHHi.ooo silver dol
lars. We have I'o.iMio tons of silver
either in the treasury or in circula
tion amoiio; our people. Txvcnty
thousiiud tons! Just think of it!
Now, becuu-rf" we say xve have
enough silver, that xve ouht not to
have any more, therefore xve are
enemies of .ilvcr! It xvas the re
publican party that devised Hush'
measures by xvhicli wUl and silver
Isnuiie the staintard money. Sliver
was to In- employed to the fullest
possible extent ill the business of our
country, ami both were to be supple
mented by the he-t forms of paper
money to be i ued by the national
government, always redeemable iu
Cold and silver, and always one as
Hood as the oilier. Applause. J
Now you may ask--and I urn try
ing to (tive you xx hat little informa
tion I can, although I suppose you
know all thce things xx hat is it we
fear about silver. Il is this, a tliiuy:
that you in this rich and l MUtilnl
and productive city must know.
Silver thirty years iijjci xvas not found
in the I'nited States. No silver xv
pn s un 1 1 In re. Uuld xvas found iu
California and Nevada, but silver
xvas found nowhere, but it xvas finally
disisivered ill c''e!it ma" ' in Color
ado. We then bewail to prmluce it,
and now xve are the largest silver
pr m I u-i !; co'iutry in the xvorld. We
produce xt hat xx ill coin alsait Tu.iiimi,
uoo silver dollars in a single yi ar.
At the same time that this reat pro
duction of ours xv as oceurri nc In our
country and iu Mexico, Australia
and other countries, the Kiilonan
nations one by one demonetized sil
ver. It is not valuable enough to I
measure the productions of mankind.
lt is n depreciating commodity. As
this vast amount of silver came in
si;ht it went down in price, just like
xvlieut xx ill codoxvn xvheu there is
overproduction, or corn or theprinl-j
nets of your xx orkshops. Twenty j
years aco a silver dollar of -71 J '
grains xvas i tiial to a dollar in K"hl; I
noxv it takes iwii grains of silver to
be xxoith a dollar in cold.
The silver in the silver dollar to
day is only worth about .Moor .Vic,
and xve knexv that if xve continued to
use this silver it would finally dem
inonetie gold, and then all contracts
would lie bused upon silver alone.
Therefore, it is xvith this result mani
fest that xvlien this purchase of silver
bullion xvas stopped, xvith $;77,mmi,.
in jo on hand, there xvas a sigh of
relief all over the country.
1 do not say it xvill cure the evils
we are sutl'erin there are other
causes I xvill point out hut that it
Is a measure of relief no man can
ipiestion. The republican party, be
it tomorrow, next day and forewr,
will stand for the bimetallic money,
Cold and silver at par xvith each
other, and at par xvith xvith all other
forms of money. Wo do not xvant
any nipujr. red doc money; xve
want cuod indney, that is stamped
by the eaule of the Vnited Slates,
and that is backed ' by the xvliole
wealth of the people of the 1'nitcd
State". We want good money of the
various kinds, and plenty of it. That
is our idea.
Noxv, our dein a-rat friends t not
k noxv w hat tliey want. (.aught r.
Absolutely they are unable to aris
upon ft propo-itinn in regard to fin
ance. 1 think they xvill lie unible
to in roc.tr I to other m ttters. Th -re-fore,
I have no doubt it xvas with a sic h
of relief that the president of the I'nit
ed States finally saw the re;uiblit.ins
Jiad come to his support when for
once iu his life he xvas riht o:l th
issue he proMisi.
