tho statement that in a conference with Mr.
Smith, who was assisting In the manage
ment or Gen. Gordon's senatorial campaign
that Gen. Gordon baa pledged that he
would accept an agreement to certain condi
tions named by the Alliance.
In th letter to Col. Peek, Mr. Smith cor
rected the impression that Gen. Gordon had
unquahfledlyapproved thesubtreasury plan
advocated by the Alliance. He then relateB
his view on the conference and adds:
"I mentioned a number of measures of
proposed reform around which all might
gather and out of them obtain the very
best plan for the relief of the people that
it waa possible to pass.
"1. Currency with non-perishable agri
cultural products as a ba&is, the issue to
be limited to.only a part of the crop, but
not to be called in at the end of twelve
months; on tlie contrary, to remain in
circulation until a second crop is har
vested and until a portion or the gecond
crop may bu substituted for the first,
thereby making it possible to keep the
money in constant circulation and to
prevent a yearly forced contraction.
"2. The free coinage of silver.
"3. Tho issue of Treasury notes by which
the government bonds might be redeemed,
and, instead of the interest-bearing bonds,
a legal tender currency substituted."
Tlie fourth and fifth plans proposed fa
vored a graded income tax and a reduc
tion of the tariff, and Mr. Smith con
cluded: "My only purpose was in a spirit of har
mony, to aid Democratic nominees and
preserve Democratic organization, and
pass, by a united effort, measures of
practical benefit to tlie people."
