Denver, July 18. Interest in tho
silver convention was not In the least
abated yesterday and when called to
order standing room was not to bo bud.
After tho appointment of delegates to
tbe St. Louis and Chicago silver con
ventions and to the "gold bug" gath
ering at St. Paul tho committee on res
olutions presented its report which was
unanimously adopted. It is addreesed
to tho people of tho Uulted States aud
"Tho people of Colorado, standing In
tne gloom of Impending disaster and
representing In condition and sentiment
the peoplo of Montana Idaho, Wyom
ing, Nevada, South Dakato, Utah, Arl
zona and New Moxlco, with reverence
for the constitution and unswerving

the following facta beforo you give ap

money and to tho final establishment

ard of value and ttiue, at one stroke,
chango all debts to gold debts and In
augurate a never-ending rjso of gold
and a continued corresponding fall in

gress is called to meet In extra session
on August 7th. Preceding this call tbe
clauses which struggled for tweuty
years to overthrow tho bl-metalllo mon
ey standard provided by the constitu
tion, inaugurated u panic which they
untruthfully charged to tbo oxUtlng
silver law, ignoring tho fact that tburo
are (800,000,000, of outstanding legal
tender notes commonly called green
backs, that are equally ayalluble with
treasury notes Issued in payment for
silver to draw the gold from the treas
ury; that tbe balance of our forelgu
trado baa turned against us, rendorlng
settlomont abroad with American gold
a necessity and tbe great bankers of
Europe are purchasing gold with
Wbicb to chango tbo monoy standard in
Austria and to fill tho treasury vaults
of other monarcbial countries. Tho
evident purpose 1b to creute a prejudice
against what is known as tho silver
purchasing act and under this pressure
to securo its unconditional repeal.
Tho success of this scheme Is only
partial. Presidential patronnge, sup
plementing falso and Incendiary utter
ances by tbo gold press and aggravated
by daily circular assaults upou tbo law
by eastern money brokers seut to every
commercial body and banking corpor
ation In tbe country,havo possibly won
oyer the house of representatives to It,
but even tbe president admitted that
In the senate thore is a staunch major
ity against it. Suddenly tbo uewu was
flashed beneath tbe oceans that free
colnauo In India had been suspended
and the market price of silver bad
fallen within forty-eight hours fully
twenty cents an ounce. Tho Sherman
law did not work In the sllvor produc
ing states. It was forced upou the
country against their will. Their con
stant demand has been that of tbo ag
ricultural states west aud south and the
working masses of tho whole country,
Tbey havo not sought to Impose upon,
the country some new financial nos
trum and have asked simply tho res
toration of tho coinage laws as they
wdro from the first year of tbe federal
conutilutloiruutil tho furtive repeal in
1878. The Sbermau law was a trick by
which the restoration was defeated.
Tbe charge that blmetallsts demand
that sixty couts be made a dollar Is a
lie. It U a trlok of the tingle standard
conspirators that lessened tbe value of
silver. Wbathl-metalllsts do ask aud
all they ask la the law regulating coin
age a,i It was for seventy-five years of
tbe country's greatest glory shall be
restored without addluj or expunging
syllable. IH-metalllsta will cheerful
ly submit to any legislation that exper
ience will suggest as necessary to make
every dollar of tho United States equal
iu Intrinsic yaluo to overy other bear
lug its stamp.
"Will you listen to us while we speak
In words of sober earnestness of tbe
local effects the unconditional repeal of
silver will have?- The silver mining
states and terrl tori ties, embracing 1,000,
000 square miles of the continent with
2.000,000 Americans inhabiting them,
depend pccuularly upon silver mining
for prosperity. This Industry Is the
very heart from which nearly every
other Industry receives support. The
reduction of tho price of silver to about
70 cents shut down 00 per cent, of tbe
silver mlues of the country and tbe
smelters must In consequence soon fol
low their example. In Colorado today
thero aro 15,000 Idle miners. There will
soon bo added to tbls 4000 mon from
tbo smelters. Stone quarries are nearly
all abut down, railway, companies are
laying off train crews by the score,
foundries are nearly all out of orders,
farmers and fruit growers will be barely
paid for tbe cost of Baying tbelr crops
and merchants are countermanding or
ders. The destruction of the sliver in
dustry will devastate tbe country as if
swept by a cyclone reaching from the
British possesions to tbo .Mexican bor
der lino. We say to you In tho most
solemn and truthful manner that reli
able statistics prove, including but
legitimate items in tho account, that
the sllvor of Colorado costs by the time
It is on tho market not less than $1,29
per ounce. Like gold, some silver la '
produced for much less than tbe mark
et value, but tbo average cost of stiver
Is fully tbo highest prlco It ovor brought
In tbo market.
"Stop aud couslder, men of tbe East,
how many millions of your money are
In vested with us. No calamity can In
duce us to repudiate a dollar of honest
debt. All our assets aro at the will of
our creditors for tbelr reimbursement,
but If by bad congressional legislation
through congress you shall wipe out
tbo greut Industry of tbo section,
around which all others cluster for
vigor and profit, the values of our prop
erties will shrink, our business will be
destroyed, our Iowub and cities will be
largely depopulated and railroads tra
vorslug tbo western half of tbe conti
nent will bo seut Into bankruptcy. Cer
tainly In the face of such unmerited In
fliction you can't blame ua If we, thus
deprived of all, fall to pay all our obli
gations. You may, It Is true, tacce the
country In payment; but after you get
It what will will you do with It? We
will not submit to tbo destiny of pov
erty without a struggle. We shall seek
to open up new markets and build up
our silver industry along now lines and
with now and more sympathetic neigh
bors. "To tbo South Colorado appeals with
more soul felt words, Two years ago
you feared tho enactment of a law that
threatened to deprive you of self gov
ernment aud turn your election booths
over to tbo tender merclcd of federal
bayonets on election day. To save you
from tho outrages of tbe federal force
bill Colorado's two senators, Republi
cans, defied the edicts of their party
causes and defeated what to you waa
certain humiliation and tbo horrors of
subjection to tbe electoral will of your
former slaves. We saved you then,
you can save us now."
