"Mr. Chairman, Ladles and gontle-
tn-Wlicn our party at Chicago

Fi'S,supply tho federal treasury 1th

loiiictnllNai.' That Is one of tho
iks thiit was not .put In to attract
love of those who have grown rich
of the government's extremities,
did not expect those who have a
vsayc-wny from tho federal trcas-
to their olllces to Join with us In
ingup the passage. We did not
feet those who nro making a profit
M the cnibarnissment it brings to
treasury to Join with us in putting
end to tho gold standard. 1 say
(Platform was not written toat-
t their votes. It was written be-
s vie want to destroy tho business
blch they are engaged.
K my friends, If those who have
s a profit out of tho government's
P'lal policy arrnv t)irmc.u-u
ost tho Democratic party, may
expect thoso who believe that
Je light to come to our rescue and
1111 tip the ranks that are being de
pleted by their desertion? If we
must part company with those who
bellovo In aKovcrnmcutof syndicates,
by syndicates and for syndicates, may
wo not appeal with confidence to those
who believe that a government of the
people, by the people and for tho peo
ple should not perish from the earth?
If these men who pride themselves
upon their prominence In the business
world nndwlio glory in the tltlo of
business men arc going to make a
business out of politics, are going to
use their ballots to Increase their in
come, I beg you to consider whether
the great tolling masses of thtsnation
have not n right to make a business
out of politics also, and protect their
homes and families Lfroni disaster,
The founders of ourgovemmcut never
considered that the time would come
when thoro would be only a few peo
ple In tills country who were compe
tent to settle great public questions.
ir they had. they would have written
In the constitution that, on most
questions, almost everybody could
vote, but on money questions, only
financiers could vote.
"Our opponents, of the gold stand
ard Democracy, are all linked together
as to the policy which should bo pur
sued. They all want tho same object;
they all want to elect a Republican
candidate, localise they believe that
Democracy Is better exemplified
through Ropubllcanism. Some of our
opponents say that the gold standard
Is a good thing, whllo others say,
"What wo want is bimetallism, but
wo cannot have It until somebody
helps." If tlio gold standard Is a good
thing, why should we want bimetal
lism? And yet If t hoy ever have two
men making speeches, the same night,
the chances are 10 to 1 that one of
them will praise the gold standard as
a good thing, while the other will tell
you how anxious they arc to get rid of
It. One man says tho reason why ho
docs not want free coinage Is that ho
docs not think the government should
pass u law that will enable tho silver
miners to take CO cents' worth of sil
ver bullion and convert It Into 100
cents. Of course, ho may bo In favor
of a system of taxation that would
glvo 200 or 300 per cent profit, but
that docs not count; It Is n terrible
thing to allow tho silver-miner to
make that profit. Then tho next
man who comes up will say that, as a
matter of fact, tho stamp, of tho gov
ernment, adds nothing to tho value of
tho metal, and that free coinage of
silver simply means that you convert
CO cent' worth of bullion Into a 50-
cent dollar, and nobody makes a profit
out of It. Now you can see the ab
surdity of It. If the Bllycr-mlner,
under ttie law of free coinage, finds
that ills silver bullion has raised so
that that which Is now worth fiOcents
will be worth 100 cents, then there
arc no fio-rent dollars; ' arm If the
other man Is coned, and the lawadds j
nothing to the value or the mctal.uud j
you simply convert CO cents' worth of
silver Into a CO-cenl dollar, then the
mine-owner litis not. made a cent. i
"Well, then, you hear another'
speaker say there lias been no full In
prices, and he will denounce tho pen
pic who are .complaining that gold
has risen In price, and then his col
leagues will tell you that not only
have prices rallen, but that Itlsthe
greatest blessing In the world to have
prices fall. Our opponents do not
daro to say that ths gold standard Is a
good thing, because no party In the
history of this country has ever de
clared in favor of a gold standard,
nnd they do not dare to say that the
gold standard Is a bad thing and tell
70,000,000 of liberty-loving people that
they have got to stiller until some for
eign nation brings them relief. What
Is theprlnclplo that underlies It all?
It Is that the law ol supply and de
mand applies to money as to every
thing else. Increase tho amount of
money more rapidly than the demand
for money Increases, and you lower
the value or a dollar. Decrease the
quantity of money while the domand
for It Increnscs, nnd you Increaso the
value of a dollar. When you under
stand that principal, then you under
stand why the great crusado In favor
of the gold standard finds Its homo
among tho holders of fixed invest
ments, who, by such legislation, raise
tho value of tho property which they
hold. When you understand tho
effect of tho policy, and then under
stand that the dcslro for it Is mani
fested mostly among thoso who hold
fixed lnvestmoutsand trado in money,
I think you will coma to the conclu
sion that I have that tho tact that
tho gold standard Is a good thing for
them is the principal reason why they
are In favor of a gold standard.

"In conned Ion with the charge that 1 advocated tho bill which demone

were thoso distinguished sonstors, Messrs. Blaine nnd Voorhces, who wore

SENATOR lir.UEKOUD CHARGES FRAUD.
Mr. President. I now cofiie toono or tho most remarkable and to my
mind one of tho most fraudulent pieces of legislation this or any other
country over saw. I refer to the manner of tho passage of tho bill demone
tizing silver. I will not occupy tho time of tho sennto by going over the
whole history of this most Iniquitous transaction. Mr. Hooper, since
deceased, was at tho time chairman of tho committeo having charge of a
out which uau oeen rcrcrrcu tonis committee, nnu on .May v.1, ihti', reported
a substitute and moved to suspend the rules nnd pass tho substitute, upon
which motion, among other tilings, tho following occurred, which any sena

Mr. Kerr. I want tho houic to understand that It Is attempted to put
through tho bill without being toad.
Tho Spcnkci. Does tho gentleman from Massachusetts Mr. Hooper
movo that the reading of the bill be dispensed with?
Mr. Hooper, of Massachusetts. I will so fnime my motion to suspend tho
rules that it will dispense with tho reading of tho bill.
Tho Speaker. Tho gentleman from Massachusetts moves that tho rules

Mr. Randall. Cap not wo have a division of this, motion?
Tho Speaker. A motion to suspend tho rule can not bo dl Idcd.
Mr. Randall. I should like to have tho bill read, although I am willing
that tho rues shall bo suspended as to tlie passage of tho bill.
Tho question was put on suspending tho rules and passing tho bill with

Mr. Hooper, or Massachusetts, I now move that the rules be suspended,
nnd tho substitute fur tho bill relating to mints nnd coinage pass?d;aiHi I nsk

Tho clerk began to read tho bill.
Mr. Brooks. Is that tho original bill?
Tlie speaker. Tho motion of tho gentleman from Massachusetts Mr.
Hooper applies to the substitute, and that on which tho house Is called to act
Is being read.
Mr. Brooks. As there Is no debate, tlie only chauco wo havo to know
what wo nro doing Is to havo both tho bill and tho substitute read.
The Speaker. Tho motion of tho gentleman from Massachusetts bolng
to suspend tho rules nnd pass tho substitute, It gives no choice between tho
two bills. Tho house must cither pass tho substitute or none.
Mr. Brooks. How can wo chooso between tho original bill and tho sub
stitute unless wo hear them both read?
Tho Sneaker. Tho gentleman can vote "ay" or "no" on tills question
whether this substitute shall bo missed.
Mr. Brooks. I am very much in the habit of voting "no" when I do not
know what Is going on.
Mr. Holmaii. Befuro tho question is taken upon suspending tho rules
nnd passing tho bill, I hopo tho gentleman from Massachusetts will explain
tho leadlnir changes made by this bill In tho existing law, expcclally In refer
ence to tho colnnge. It would seem that all tho imall colnago or tho country
Is Intended to bo rccolncd. ...
Mr. Hooper, of Massachusetts. Tills bill makes no changes in tho exist
ing law in that regard. It docs not require the rccolnago of tho snmll coins.
Tho question being taken on tho motion or Mr. Hooper, or Massachusetts
to suspend tho rules and pass tho bill, It wns agreed to; thoro being ayes 110,
And so the rules wore suspended, and tho substitute passed without Its

and when It Is entirely closed, Deaf
