WILLIAM J. BRYAN,
ARTHUR SEW ALL,
CAN WE MAINTAIN FREE
The question is often asked by
honest and intelligent voters, "Can
the United States maintain a bi
metallic standard?" In fact the
issue in the present campaign is on
the very lines suggested by the
question. Mr. McKinley and his
siherents are now insisting that
the answer to the inquiry should
be, "No," while Mr. Bryan and his
followers answer "Yes."
The Republican platform assumes
that bimetallism is a good thing,
but that we cannot expect to have
it except through an international
agreement; which means we will
never ger it, or, if we do, the time
will be so far off that the youngest
child now living, will never be old
enough to witaess the "consumma
tion so devoutly to be wished." It
means that we will never get the
free coinage of silver until all the
leading commercial nations of Eu
rope agree to a sort of monetary
pentecost, and which they will
never do so long as it is to the inter
est of the money power to per
petuate the gold standard.
The common people of these
couutries have little or nothing to
say about the financial policy
of their own countries; they are
governed by kings, lords and
dukes, who so shape the money
matters that they get the greatest
benefit, and they get it at the ex
pense of the producer and wage
earner. In this land of ours, where
liberty and progress are the pillars
of our civilization, the conditions
are, or should be different. Here,
in Columbia's happy land, the peo
ple are supposed to govern, and
they are presumed to guard, with a
zealous baud, the rights and inter
ests of the common people. Now,
it is conceded by all parties, that
to have the free coinage of silver
with gold at a ratio of 16 to 1 in
this country, would be a very de
sirable condition; but one party
says, "Wait until all the commer
cial nations of Europe agree, and
then we can have it;" the other
party says, "We believe we can
have it now, and maintain it by our
selves, and force the other nations
to follow our lead."
We are a nation of seventy mil
lions of peaple; we aw in posses
sion of superior natural advan
tages, in the character of the peo
Ttf in nni natnnl rfcmirPPA &Ha in
r-, ... w. . ,
our geographical and climatic sur
roundings, and hence the United
States is fully equal in prodactrre
capacity and finaBcial power to any
140,000,000 of people that can be
grouped together by other aatioas.
What differaa.ee will it make to hs
if England and the other Euro
pean nations do ot coaseat, iat
object to us haviag the THsaetallic
standard? Is it feared that ye
would run short of soaey by the
withdrawal of foreign capital?
There is no danger oa that score
we are oae ef the greatest geH
and silver producers oa. earth. The
frVPMcm aabb4mim Mwn M&Amaeanr

u,for the reasoa that tksy wtJPertars
have our wheat, corn, beef, cotton,
and hundreds of other products of
the soil, the factory and work
shop. But we are told that aU the for
eign creditors will demand imme
diate payment of our obligations,
public and private, and thereby
crush out our life by lawsuits and
foreclosures. Not a bit of dangei;
because the foreign creditor would
have to receive his pay in the legal
tender money of the country, either
silver or gold, and we certainly
could pay them in silver then, easier
than we now can in gold; and these
money sharks of Europe are too
shrewd to force a condition which
would depreciate the value of the
silver dollar, when this would be
the very kind of money they would
get on their demands. Would they
not rather unite with us to keep
silver on a par with gold, so as not
to injure their own interests? We
think they would.
The very fact that the people of
other nations are our creditors, is
a strong reason why we can main
tain bimetallism in this country.
They will never do anything to in
jure the kind of money with which
they may be paid. If a man was
to loan his neigbor 1,000 bushels
of yellow corn, to be paid back in
one or two years, and, on pay-day,
if he knew he had to take 1,000
bushels of white corn in payment,
he would be a pretty fool to go on
the market and try to bear the price
of white corn; he would be far
more likely to bull the market a
few cents. It should be remem
bered, that we are not indebted to
England as a nation, or to any
other nation. Whatever we owe,
we owe to indicifleMeVfnd- net to
Therefore, we are masters of the
situation; and the United States
can compel all the other nations of
Europe to quietly acquisce in our
action in restoring silver as a money
metal, and can also force them to
do the same and thus force the bi
metallic standard upon the whole
world. The only question remain
ing is, will they do it, and thus use
the advantage for the benefit of our
people? The result of the election
in November will answer the ques
tion. THE STATE CONVENTION.
The Democratic State Conven
tion which convened at Provo, on
Thursday last, was a mighty gath
ering of the gallant leader of the
party of Bryan and silver. Ail
through this body of intellectual
giants was complete hanaony and
good feeling, which breathes an air
of victory on the whole ticket, and
carries an impress that "This is

We aai the keaor te e
with Mr. Evans after the conven
tion adjourned, and we were assured
by him that he was perfectly satis
fied with the work of the conven
tion. Mr. Evans is in the eye of
the Democratic public, and will be
sought for in the near future, mark
our words. Now that our ticket is
placed in the field there remains
nothing to be done but to get to
work and swell the majority for
Bryan, silver, the State ticket, the
county and judicial tickets, and
every precinct candidate. Look out
for a landslide; it's coming boys, (
THE A. LINCOLN REPUBLI-
It appears that at a recent meet-
ing of the above mentioned club,
that our distinguished fellow citi
zen, the Hon
P. W. Nelson was'110 UIa ner Bennett, inese
elected president of the same. Now
we have no desire to speak of Pres
ident Nelson in a derogatory man
ner, nor of any of the other mem
bers of that club, for we honestly
believe that he is honest, conscien
tious and wise, and thoroughly
qualified in every respect to serve in
that capacity. But we have been
informed by a prominent member
of our race, to the effect that dur
ing the election, which was held two
years ago to select delegates to the
constitutional convention, that Pres
ident Nelson procured the names
of seventy-five members of our race,
and that he called on one of the
Democratic candidates, and pledged
his word and honor that he and
every mother'3 son-of-a-gun of them
would vote the Democratic ticket
from top to bottom for twenty-five
cents apiece. During the last elec
tion we observed our worthy friend
hobnobing with one or two of the
Democratic candidates. But we do
not mean to infer that President
Nelson had an itching desire to ob
tain any Democratic money. But
it looked mighty suspicious to a
man up a tree. We sincerely hope
that from henceforth the President
of the A. Lincoln Republican club
will refrain from trying to blow hot
and cold ac the same time.
We notice that Brother Bill Tay
lor, of the Plain Double Dealer, is
a member of the executive commit
tee. He is the gentleman who was
raised up from obscurity a few
years ago, and placed in a good
paying office by a member of the
Democratic party. Which office he
continued to fill until he was kicked
out on the 14th day of January,
1896, by a high priest of the g. o.
p. It is said that the ex-dog
catcher is a very prominent candi
date for the State Legislature, and
some of his friends say that he will
be nominated by acclamation. We
warn him, however,, that he had
better beware lest the same fate
will fall upon his head that fell
upoa the illustrious head of Judge
R. B. Johnson about one year ago.
It is reported that Senator Ar
thur Brown will appoint Judge
Johnson Attorney General of the I
United States in case Bill McKin-
lev is elected President of thej
same. Major General P. H. Rob
fasoa, who was a candidate for
Speaker of the House of,Repre-
seatative last winter, is oae ot tfce
directors, aad if the g. o. p.
saarcaes oa to victory be will re
ceive the appoiatsseet as Minister
to Afriea. P. C. Howell, Esq., i
aa boaorary saeatber of the club.
Mr. Howell has worked very hard
for tie g. o. p. dariag the past
twaaty years, aad wbea the Hoa.
James Glendinning became Mayor
of this beautiful city, Mr. Howell
wan an applicant for the position
which is now held by a gentleman
who does not entertain a very high
regard for hog meat. We presume
that if Napoleon McKinley wins
with both hands down, that P. C.
Howell will be the next postmaster
of this fair city of Zion. Behind
the mighty movements of the A.
Lincoln club, we see the blood
money which has been wrung from
the pockets of the poor honest
workingmen by the hand of Mark
Hanna, whose name has become
very offensive to the nostrils of all
true Americans, and by standing
away up on top of the woodpile we
can see the fine Italian hands of
Senator Arthur Brown, Sir John
Dooly, Ex-Governor A. L. Thomas
J gentlemen pay the fiddlers, and the
members of the club dance to the
music furnished by the big four.
But to make a long story short, we
believe that the officers of the A.
Lincoln club are the representatives
of a class of leaders who have been
instrumental in retarding the pro
gress of the negro race more than
all the other agencies combined.

publican committee, is yet in doubt

A FIELD DAY FOR DEMOC
RACY. Last Saturday was a big day for
the Democrats of Salt Lake county,
being the occasion of the county
couvention, which met at the Opera
Grand, and which was packed from
cellar to roof until the chairman's
gavel fell for final adjournment.
The most complete harmony and
good nature prevailed throaghout
the entire session, and ended by
placing a ticket in the field which
is absolutely invincible and will be
elected at the polls by a majority
of 1,000 and upwards.
The only Fisher Harris in the
world was made both temporary
and permanent chairman, which
was most fortunate for the conven
tion, as but few men in the state
could have accomplished the gigan
tic amount of work before the con
vention as rapidly and as smoothly
as he. His patience, alertness, and
his knowledge of parliamentary law
made him an ideal presiding officer.
A fusion was successfully effected
with the Populist party, giving
them three legislative places, and
one on the board of county com
missioners. The ticket is an ad
mirable one, being well ballanced
as to location, race, sex and creed.
The list of nominees will receive
appropriate notice in due time
through the columns of this paper,
but at present we defer any indi
vidual mention, as we have not the
space this week to devote to the
twenty-six names which were vir
tually introduced to official life by
the action of the convention.
The ticket is a good thing, let us
all "push it along."
