H. Y. KIRKPATRICK,
and - Proprietor
The following interview written
out by Senator Mitchell himself,
arid furnished to the Portland Dai
Jy Sun, io which paper it appeared
on Tuesday, June 18, 1895.
"Senator do you still adhere to
your views on the silver question,
as frequently expressed by you in
your speeches in the senate and in
various journalistic interviews.?".,,
"Most assuredly: So Jfar from
having become weakened in the
faith, I have, by further careful
; study and investigation to the
question, becomemore fully con
vinced than ever that views I have
heretofore Advocated on the mone
' tary subject are correct, and in line
with the best interests of all classes
of all the people and the real phys
ical development and business
prosperity of the country. I am
unalterably "opposed to the single
gold standard. J!, in the language
of the last , national republican
platform, 'demand' the use of both
gold and silver as Btandard money;
not gold merely as standard money,
and silver as token money or sub
sidiary coin but both gold and sil
ver as standard money, as stated in
the platform. In other words, we
must have no limit on one metal
either in respect to coinage, the le
gal tender function or debt-paying
power, that is not imposed on the
other, nor must any legislative rec
ognition be withheld from one that
is accorded the other, arid, there
fore, as the coinage of gold is free
' and unlimited, so must be the coin
age of silver. As gold is by legis
lative enactment money of ulti
mate redemption, so, too, must
silver be endowed by law with the
like function. The' coinage, how
ever, must be a ratio fixed by law
the precise means by which
such ratio has always been fixed
not by commerce. But for the fact
that it would necessitate the re-
coinage of all our silver dollars,
I should favor the fixing of the
ratio by law at 16j to 1; as it is,
however, I am decidedly in favor
of maintaining the existing ratio
of 16 to 1."
This is a campaign of education,
as the republicans tell us. In
what are the people to ' be educat
ed? In the advantages of the
tariff and of a gold standard? We
suppose this is the line of educa
tion. There are but two wavs of
teaching the ignorant by study
ing the opinions of others, and by
individual experience. Everyday,
hour and minute for many long
years, the people have been learn
ing by individual experience of the
advantages and disadvantages of
high tariff and the gold standard.
If it is true that experience is the
best toacher, then it must follow,
that the people have had the very
best education that can be given
to them. What have they learn
ed? They have learned that times
have been getting harder, money
dearer, the products of their labor
cheaper, but little demand for
labor, farms mortgaged, homes
sold, families in want. They see the
gaunt form of poverty, misery and
want shadowing the homes of the
people, while wealth, happiness
and plenty abound in the homes of
the few the poor getting poorer
and the rich getting richer. These
are the truths that have been
chisled into their memory by the
hand of experience. But. all of
this, the work of years, is now to
be nndone by the scattering ofj
millions of pamhhlets, written by
the paid attorneys of trusts and
corporations. These high salaried
agents of Wall
people of the many
that should come from the gold
standard, but the experience of
years tell the people of the disad
vantages that have come from this
curse. Your own poverty, and the
poverty of your neighbor is a
ceaseless but sad reminder that
you and your neighbors cannot
hope for anything from the two
parties Advocating tat gold stand
The republicans idea of bimetal-
ism is much like the sinners idea
of religion it u a good tiling to
have, but not just yet.
The republicans are to be con
gratulated upon their superb club
organization throughout the coun
try, but their energies might bo
used in a more worthy cause.
Bryan is still traveling around
the country, meeting the voters in
their own homes. His supporters
cunt afford to pay their expenses
way to Nebraska to shake his
hand, and he has no Mark Banna
to round up the boys for him.
The Eastern Oregonian received
the following dispatch from Chair
man Jones of the National Demo
cratic Convention: The statement
that I have given up hope of
Bryan's election, which you say is
telegraphed to Oregon from Wash
ington, is an absolute falsehood,
"without a shadow of foundation.
was never as confident of his
election us I am today and I have
absolutely no doubt of his success.
Every day brings another large
excursion party to Canton. Sovor
al hundred miles are traveled by
many of these excursiouists, and
the expenses incurred must figure
up to quite a sum of money for
each man. Who pays these ex
penses? Can the individuals pay
them? Let us think a moment.
How many of the average citizens
of this county can afl'ord to pay
from ten to fifty dollars for a pleas
ure trip? It is fair to suppose
that tiie people in the ea9t are no
better fixed financially than our
own people. Then about the same
relative number can afford this ex
pense. Look around among our
own people. Who of us has so
much spare cash? Few indeed
Then, is it possible that our east
ern Dretnern pay their own ex
penses and furnish the music too.
If not, who pays them? May be

The Oregonian publishes the
following telegram from Indianap
olis which indicates the use of
"Considerable of a sensation has
been created here by the publica
tion of a signed statement from
Captain S. M. Shepard, a well
known lawyer, and chairmm of
the populist county committee, in
which he accuses Commissioner
W. A. Van Buren of attempting to
bribe him in the interest of the
republican party. In substance,
Captain Shepard charges that he
was offered by Van Buren sufficient
money to run the populist cam
paign, and a liberal compensation
for himself, if he would use his in
fluence to keep the populists from
fusing with the democrats. Mr.
Van Buren denies the charges."
If the American people are
foolish enough to uphold the gold
standard, they should then urge
congress to pass a law compelling
the farmers to raise no cereal but
wheat. Why should not this
country be on a "wheat standard"
the same as ou a gold standard?"
One is as reasonable as tlio other.
