McKINLEY VS. SILVER.
A LARGE-sized boom is being
turned loose in the Republican
camp, by the jingo-politicians, in
the interest of Bill McKinJey and
his bill. This "faTorite son" of
Ohio, is receiving a regular brass
band nomination for the office of
president, by his admirers all over
the country where the gold standard
men are running the politics of the
r. o. p. Mr. McKinley not only
represents the most radical doctrine
of protection for protection's sake,
but be is a typical representative of
the so-called "honest money" fal
lacy. He is as much a "gold bug"
as John Sherman or John G. Car
lisle. Therefore, should he re
ccne the nomination for president,
at the hands of the St. Louis con
vention, the friends of "free sil
ver" could take no comfort from
that fact, no matter what the plat
form might declare, as it is well
known that a political platform is
expressly made "to get in on," aad
not "to stand on after election."
It is now evident to a blind man,
that the gold men of the g. o. p.
intend to force the old tariff issue
to the front as the leading question
of the campaign, and thereby de
tract attention from the money
question. This same scheme will
doubtless be attempted by the
"sound 'money" plutocrats of the
Democratic party, and thereby try
to relegate the silver question to
"innocuous desuetude." But such
a course will be futile, if we judge
the spirit, temper and character of
the "free coiners" correctly. The
financial or money question is the
overshadowing issue of the coming
contest, and no set of politicial fa
kirs can divert the minds of the
people from the real issue. If
neither of the old parties recognize
the needs of the people, in this
their hour of tribulation, then it
will be the duty of all friends of
free silver to unite for the common
purpose of destroying the tyrant
which has been gradually, crushing
the rights and liberties of the
masses for over twenty years. No
McKinley boom or Carlisle boom
can be made big enough to drown
the cries of the suffering and im
poverished American voters,' and
who demand the restoration of the
money of the constitution, which
was demonetized by another "fa
Torite son" of Ohio, in 1873, by
false pretences, which amounted to
a public crime.
The men who stand as advocates
for the white metal, both in the
South and in the West, are deeply
in earnest, and the noise of trass
bands, the booming of cannon, nor
the hurrahs of "gelden" throats in
launching the McKinley botftn, will
deter them from their duty, or
cause them to abandon the fight for
justice and human rights, in this,
the most important crisis through
which this country has passed since
1861. Beputticans who love their
country better than they do their
Party, will not Te hoodwinked fey
the McKinley boom, as it mean a
gold standard, and a destructioa. at
our prosperity and liberty, and ifee
founding of a gold aristocracy tht
will rule and ruin a vast majority
of the people of this land o free
dom and equal rights.

A FABLE WHICH IN NOT A
Whim the writer was a young
man, a good many years age, on an
occasion of crossing the Mississippi
river on a crowded ferry, a violent
dispute arose between two passen
gers, which resulted in their draw
ing off their coats and starting to
engage in blows, from which they
were prevented with apparent diffi
culty by the bystanders. After the
landing of the boat at the levee of
a large city, the two belligerent fel
lows were soon lost in the crowd,
when it was ascertained that no less
than five persons had their pockets
picked while crossing the river.
And it was further found out that
it was all accomplished while the
pretended quarrel and fight was
going on; and that the two prin
cipals In the fight, together with
their confederates, had all met in a
saloon near by and divided up their
In a large and proud city, the cap
ital of a populous and free nation,
under the deme of that magnificent
building from which the Goddess
of Liberty holds aloft the scales of
justice, the representatives of two
hoary-headed political parties, are
now striving to get up a sham fight
over an ancient feud called the
tariff question whereby they can
divert public attention, and enable
the bankers and Shylocks of the
East to reap a rich harvest, by leav
ing undone the necessary financial
legislation demanded in the interest
of the people. Signs of warning
should be posted on the entrance of
the Capitol: ''Beware of pickpock
ets." And in the coming election
the sign, "Beware of pickpockets,"
should be enscribed at every cross
road, and placed over the door of
every voting precinct in the United
States. Tariff is no longer a serious
question of dispute; it is only the
pretext, or false alarm, to mislead
the voter, and cause him to blindly
follow the party war cry.
We believe the time has come
when the cry of "a fight, a fight"
on the tariff, will cause the voters
to turn away with a smile of scorn
at the eauziness of the sham of
these flim-flamers, and protect their
valuables by insisting that these old
ex-champiori-tariff boxers shall be
retired, and a new champion brought
out, who will -bear a shield of silver
and gold, atthe ratio of 16 to 1.
In the meantime let the motto be
vmsnifmonslr displayed, to "Be

UTAH, MARCH 21, 1896.
We notice that the bimetallic
party of California last week de
clared in favor of Morgan, of Ala
bama, for President, and Allen, of
Nebraska, for Vice-President. We
accept the amendment to our ticket
as to the second place, and say,
Hurrah for Morgan. The Broad
Ax claims to be the first paper in
the United States to nominate John
T. Morgan for President, and we
feel somewhat elated to see how his
name is growing in favor all over
the country. With such an execu
tive head, the people of this country
would see the dawn of hope, amid
the boundless ocean t)f adversity
which now surrounds our country.
