New York, Sept. 18.-Herr Willieltn
on Kardorlt is the leader of the
blmetalllst party in the Prussian Diet,
and one of the most brilliant orators
In Germany. He Is a profund student
of economics, and ranks with Areudt
as one of the two leading Geiman
authorities on monetary science. It
will be been by the following letter
that free coinage by the United States
will be the means of restoratlng the
bimetallic system in Europe.
wabkitz, suesia, Aug. 5. in ac-
cordance with your request, I here
with send you my views on the
practical realization of bimetallism,
with special reference to the strife
between national and International
bimetallism which has broken out in
the United States.
Allow me to say beforehand that,
after two decades of comprehensive,
thorough, theoretical and practical
study of the coinage problem, I still
hold the great principle which your
distinguished countryman, Mr. Henry
Sarey, upheld against the gold fanat
ics when he wrote:
"President Lincoln has established
the axiom: 'Everything of the people,
for the people and by the people.' "
ALL FOR THE MONEY LENDERS.
The gold advocates have adopted
the principle: "Everything of the
money lenders, for the money lenders
and by the money lenders."
The legislative bodies of all great
commercial nations have, by large
majorities, passed resolutions which
demand an international regulation
of the money standard question in
the interest of the producing classes
In the Interest of political economy
In the interest of a healthy advance
of wages, and in the interest of Inter
national trade. These resolutions are
on record in the United StateB Con
gress, the French Chambers, the Ger
man Reichstag, the Prussian Cham
bers and the English House of
Commons. A large number of smaller
countries have Joined in the good
movement, aa Holland, Bolglum, etc,
Why are there thus far no practical
results to these devout desires? Why
does not success crown as yet the
many bimetallic congresses?
Because the capitalists of the whole
world are allled-agalnstusas one man,
and money ttlll reigns supreme.
"We should be big fools, said Sir
William Harcourt In Parliament, "if
we Englibhmen, the creditors of the
whole world, should assent to a
change of our gold standard."
With these words he has candidly
uttered the heartfelt sentiments of
the capitalistic fraternity, who are
united In France, England, German,
America and other lands in defense
of the gold standard. The tentacles
of this mighty octupus have captured
the most Jnlluentlal and most power'
ful newspapers of the civilized world,
have fastened their grip on the Cabi
nets, Ministers and high officials of
the ruling land, who are made to
thwart the pronounced will of Parlia
ments. CONDITIONS WON'T CHANGE.
These conditions will not change,
despite the theoretic agitations of
science, of parliaments and congresses,
until In some country an Intrepid and
energetic political leader will be en
abled to tear asunder the web of lies
which the monster gold spider has
spun around the world.
I think the following will show
clearly to every sound thinker the two
The gold bugs w ill bo (easily cou

bltnptalllst, of whom it lyissllre be

leads to everlasting bdrrowlng of
money, offering cnormousprolits to
banks, but ever lowering the financial

ever endangering and deteriorating
