BRAINS VS. BULLION.
This is an age of progress. Ev
erything with which man deals is
pushed to its greatest endeavor and
utility. This is an age of awaken
ing and an ambition to" outdo all
former eras. Men at last begin to
feel free to think and act for them
selve. Old creeds, old party al
legiance; and old musty notions are
giving away to a new and bright
independence. This transforma
tion is manifested in the political
struggles now going on in the
"United States. The battle for su
premacy is simply one of the natu
ral results of the age, to throw off
the haughty power of old-time
usage and custom, that of the sup
posed Divine rigbt of the rich, and
well-born to rule their fellow-man.
Behind and above the silver ques
tion, this effort of man stands in
The fight is on, and the weapons
are selected, and as might be natu
rally expected they are of the usu
al calibre, viz., mind versus money,
or reason and common sense against
wealth and power. The conflict
may be bitter, and it aaay be pro
longed, but the result is inevitable.

all other agencies and at last be

is brains against bullion, and
bullion cannot hold out against
such an advemrj. To amplify
the matter, we aeau to, say, that
the champioBS of free silwr kre
the argument sad the truth- os
their side, and thev are thus via-
cible as agai&st the setfsh jowsr o
wealth and opproawoa. Oar op
ponents are "bold aai Twcgntaat;
and will sot yield th ialoVwithoat
dying k. the kst fitek. These
sceptre of power in the way of
money, will resort to the most des
perate ends to defeat the onward
step of civilization, but in the end
it will be futile.
Money, their idol, is simply a
creature of law, made by man and
for men; and when the uses of
money become more varied, and its
needs more apparent, then the
same power that first brought it in
to use will enlarge its quantity and
usefulness. God never made money.
It is of human origin and under
human control, for the best and
noblest benefit to the human race.
This, therefore, is a question that
the people are bound to settle in
favor of the greatest good to the
greatest number, and hence the
cause of silver and a better supply
of money will win, and with it an
other long stride in the direction
of progress and human advance
ment. Let no heart waver or be fearful
of the outcome, for it is a law of
nature, as fixed and as certain as
the return of the seasons.
WHICH IS RIGHT?
Once upon a time there was a
farmer who was in great need of a
thousand dollars, but he did not
have a single dollar. A friend
came forward and said to him: "I
wiiriet you have the money if you
will give me your written obliga
tion to deliver me a thousand bush
els of either wheat or rye after next
year's harvest." This proposition
wm accented, notwithstanding: the
fact that at the time both wheat
and rye were selling at a dollar and
half a bushel. The farmer had
neither grain, but he knew he could
... l 3 iLn
raise botn on nis iarm, uu mc
onnfrnnt Pve him the advantage of
two harvests in which to raise the
necessary amount. So the contract
was plainly written and signed,
binding the farmer to deliver one
fimnacind linshels of either grain, at
his election, at the appointed time. J
When the time ot payment arnvea
it was found that the market price
of wheat had gone up to two dollars
per bushel, and the market price of
rye had gone down to one dollar
per bushel; and the farmer of
course elected to pay his obligation
in rye. But what was his surprise
to find that the man who held his
nWiMtinn insisted on havine it dis
charged by the delivery of a thou
0nd bnshels of wheat instead of
rye, and all the friends and neigh
bors of his creditor arose
as .one man and saiu: 'wny,
this man came to your res
cue when you were in trouble, and
now he wants to be paid in the
most valuable grain, and it is really
dishonest in you to even want to
pay in rye." "But," says the far
mer "did he not agree to take
either grain at my option?'' They
eould but admit this .fact, but still
they insisted that the bushel of rye
is "dishonest bushel," and are
still so insisting, and demanding
that the farmer snau not exercise
the option given him in his con
tract, and tnat "gooa ibiiu re
quires that ne discnarge nis Dura
tion in wheat, and the creditor and
his friends even insist that all men
of brains will so say. The case is
i.-.f AtvnAeA. Which party is
right, the farmer or his creditor?

rye represents the legal tender pro

THE JUDICIAL CONVENTION.
The Democratic Judicial Con
vention for the Third Judicial Dis
trict, composed of the counties of
Salt Lake, Summit and Tooele, met
in Jndge Hiles's court room last
Saturday. There was a full attend
ance and the best of feeling and
harmony prevailed. The contest
for the nomination was lively, but
short, being determined on the first
ballot by the selection of A. 6.
Norrell and Judge A. N. Cherry.
The other aspirants all received a
good support, showing that each
had a liberal number of true
friends. The defeated ones all took
their failure with good grace, like
good Democrats and generous gen
tlemen, which they all were. The
ticket of the Democracy is now
complete, and all that remains is
to get to work and see how big a
majority we can roll up for every
man and woman named thereon.
The judicial nominations are par
ticularly strong, and both of these
gentlemen will be elected by hand
some majorities. Both gentlemen
are well and favorably known all
ovei the district.
Judge A. G. Norrell, for a long
time, was United States Commis
sioner under the Territory of Utah,
during which time he won a repu
tation for fairness and judicial acu
men which gave him the reputation
of being one of the best Commis
sioners in the Territory. He was
appointed a member of the Utah
Commission by President Cleve
land, of which body he became the
chairman, where he served with un
usual credit and marked ability.
Judge A. N. Cherry, a native of
Illinois, is of Maryland ancestry;
was educated under the common
law ..practice of his native State.
He has been in active practice for
many years in Illinois, Kansas and
Utah. He served in the Illinois
Legislature in 1885, during the his
toric contest between John A. Lo
gan and W. R. Morrison for the
United States Senate. He has
been connected with many impor
tant civil and criminal cases, and is
regarded as an able and energetic
lawyer. Both of theie candidates
are men of spotless integrity, and
possess every qualification to be
come an ornament to the bench.
They will both be elected by d good
FIRE FOLLOWS INSULT TO
The Worcester Factory, Which D'ts

Flag, Seriously Damaged.
"Worcester, Mass., Sept. 27.
When Bryan spoke here last Friday
his followers were roused to a high
nitch of indignation by two flags
which were displayed on the front
of a building behind the speakers'
There was a big American .flag
bearing a portrait of McKinley,
and a red flag of even larger di
mensions, emblematic of anarchy,
oh which was a portrait of Bryan.
The silver men expressed their in

stration occurred. The building

MCKINLEY'S OLD LETTER.
Major McKinley is being con
fronted by a letter he wrote in De
cember 27, 1890, to Hon. E. S.
Perkins, of Weymouth, Ohio, in
which he expressed himself as being
in favor of the "free and unlimited
coinage of silver." He also boasts
in his letter that "he voted in the
Forty-fifth and Forty-sixth Con
gress to pass the silver bill over
President Hayes's veto."
When reference was made to this
letter a few days ago, Mr. McKin
ley manifested no concern what
ever, stating he "took no interest in
old letters." We concede that aiiy
man has the right to change his
opinion on any question of public
importance, but we would like to
know why and when a change of
heart was made. We would like to
know if Mr. McKinley made up his
mind to desert the cause of silver
coinage at the date of the filing of
the chattel mortgage on his -soul,
mind and body, which was given to
Mark Hanna and the syndicate in
consideration of the payment of the
118,000 of McKinley notes. Will
he or some of his friends give the
public the exact date of each of
these transactions? In this case
there is a lurking suspicion that
McKinley's conversion to goldbug
ism is the result of purchase and
iMr. McKinley may treat his "old
letters" and former opinions with
the utmost indifference, but tne
people of this country will take a
deep interest in keeping such a man
out of the executive chair, because
they can have no confidence in a
man who is as clay in the hands of
his manipulators. A figure-head,
or a weather-cock is unfitted to be
President of a ijreat nation like
Oct. 2, i896.
Editor Broa Ax. Dear Sin You
seem to be sanguine that Mr. Bryan
will be elected President; I there

100,000 each. Mark Hanna to be
