COIN HARVEY WANTS GOLD.
He Calls on a Chicago lt?nk timi Ask* For

By advocating silver Mr. Harvey has
reaped a harvest in gold.
Yesterday morning W. EL Harvey
monly known as "Coin" Harvey. bSBBBSB
of his authorship of a series of alleged eco
noinic papers under that name, OBSaB down
town. He was accompanied by Miss Josie
Hlx, his stenographer and confidential
clerk. The two went to thc Metropolitan
National bank at L?a Salle and Mounto
streets. They went to the window of the
paying teller, and Mr. Harvey handed in a
narrow, long slip of paper, partly written.
jvtrtly printed. It was a check. It was Mr.
Harvey's check. It called for f*.,5on.
"I want it In gold," said Mr. Harvey.
An*d mo, because he was a good fellow and
beoause he had more money and was nice
and didn't demand all In gold, and be?
oause lt seemed best all around to do lt.
Cashier Hitchcock made a mark on the
cheek, and tbe paying teller counted out
125 gold pieces.
Each was a little smaller than a silver
dollar, but a good deal heavier. Tbe whole
(2,600 made a glittering yellow column
somewhat over nine Inches high.
Tho silver prophet swept that much of
the detested metal into the canvas bag
and walked out of the bank with his ste?
He was destroying the power of gold as
other men have attempted to destroy the
power of rum. He had proved his antipa?

ing that much out of circulation.
Then he took lt over to Dearborn street
and put lt in a safety deposit vault
The place from which he took it and
the place to which he removed it are pre?
cisely two blocks apart. But that short
walk of "Coln" Harvey with hi* bag of
gold meant more than 1,000 speeches.
The bank ls good. Mr. Harvey had no
fear of its suspension. But he preferred BO
have the money where he could lay his
hands on lt at any time without asking
leave of any cashier, paying teller or Kink
president. And be wanted it In gold. Har
vey claimed that he wanted the gold to
use as an objeut lesson in his speeches?

NOT UNFRIENDLY TO SILVER.
Mr. Bryan is continually talking of
tin* unfriendliness of the American gov?
ernment to silver. He even goes ko far
B>-i to as.-ert that "no silver is being
coined now." Both assertions art" as
wide of the truth as so many of the boy
talker's declarations have bess. As a
matter of fuet, this government has not
boen unfriendly to silver?rather the
opposite. In seven months ol' Um
