To the Editor of the News and Cour
ier: In retiondiuIng to your editoral of
July 15 you say thitt I took ip the state
mentin question without any reference
to what halt preceded it. I have care
fully read your editoral alluded to and
still think that I noted the only two
prominent propositions in it, to wit:
That you favored the free inintaVe of sil
ver, provided that a (-Yol dolar'si worth
of bullion should he coined in the silver
dollar and that the farmer, by the irce
coinage of silver, would lose in the dis
posal of his crop the dfll'erence between
the commodit.y value of gold and a silver
dollar. In %our editoral of July 31 you
say: "We stated that the farmer who
received as a dollar a silver coin contain
ing only 65 cents' worth of silver in ex
chbnge,er a dollar's worth of cotton or
other pt -duce was cheated to the extent,
of 35 cents." And agaa that the sil
ver minur would eain 35 cents. Thee
propositionm are impossible, either under
present condit,lons or under the free
coinage of silver. Under present condi
lions the farmer may not only receive a
silver dolltr with a commodity value of
65 cents, bit t pali-er dollar which, as a
commodity, is wort.aless and not he
cheated at all, for the stiiple reason that
neither of' them are commodities, but
money, an( interconvertible with gold at
their stamp value.
Undj,r the tree coinage of silver it
wo.ld be impossible for the hullion hol
der to make 35 cents while the r<ceiver
lost 35 cents. For instance, when the
bullion holder voes to the mint with 65
cents' worth of silver, it it is worth only
65 cents after it is coined, lie wold make
nothing. I i lie shout ,ain 35 cents the
coin would he worth one dollar, and the
farmer or any-one else wi would re
celve it would lose nlothin. I did not
attempt in my article to controvert your
statements that "a farmer who takes 65
cents worth ot si'ver For a dollar's wort,h
ofcotton must lose 35 cents,'' but your
statement that "the farmer who de
mand.,.the free eoin-age of 65 cents dol
lars is demandiig that he shal receive
lor his labor and preducts one. third less
than they are worth." I dil not deny
vour statement that a farmer who takes
65 cents' worth of silver for a dollar's
worth of cotton must base 35
cents, because I do not, think
you can find anybody over ten
years old outside of a linat'c asylum
who wc-uld denv that a farmer who took
65 cents' worth of' silver, or of anything
else, for a dollar's worth of cott.mi or ot
i.ny other product, would lose 35 cenis.

Read the report of his let.tori to Mr.
Seward, and thwn judge. This Conl'er
enc' assembled in response to an invi
tation from the Emperor Louis Na
polhou for the purpose of arranging
for a uniform coinage of gold and sil
ver that would circilate international
ly among the civilized nations.
This meritorIous undertaking of the
French Emperor, however, was coil
veited into an opportunity by capital
ists to reduce the metallic basis of
money by one half and give to the
bankers a practical monopoly of the
currency. The powers of linance sa%%
their opportunity, delegations of cap
talists flocked across the channel from
London and Liverpool, a side meetilg
was hold and the scheme of demoneti
zation and contraction was pressed
with vigor and ability. luggles, in a
speech I efore Ihe Con ference, alarmed
the capitalists by leading them to be
lieve that, the mines of th e I Tutled
States would soon inundate the world
with the precious metals. Speaking
of this country he said: "Its annual
product., now nearly one hundred mil
lions of dollars, may eventually reach
three or four hundred millions. The
money of the world must be unilied
now or never." The resolution dis
carding silver was palsed and thus tihe
most colossal scheme of pluinder ever
devised by man put, cleverly under
way. Thus was projected tihe finan
cial poison which is to-oay conresting
the world's liver.
Demonetization of sil ver and dearth
of gold are paralyzing industry and
causing the wheels of commerve to
screak; trade is crippled and prodiict ion
halts; the weight of existing obliga
tions is being doubled and the world's
activitiei are heing compressed into
half their existing scope. It means to

hand of paralysis on the cradte of t lie

marck, that the gold basis would be
like several men trying to cover with a
small blanket-when one pulled the
other would be exposed-hias been veri
lied. Itussia pulled this gold blanket
and we had panic and react ion. A ls

men have failyd and banks broken by

Ing the fact that the war was being
waged for the protecLion of Nort.heast
ern seamen and New England mari
time rights, and what might have
transpired had not further proceedings
been cut short by the treaty of I1hen-K
no one knows. William Loyd Garri
son and Exeter Hall accolplished the
dream of Sir Robert Peel when he al
va-cated the appropriation of twenty
million rounds for the liberation of the
West India slaves, claiming that it
would be an entering wedge between
the North and South and a long stride
towards the freving of Southernii slaves,
hoping thereby to revive Atmericin ag
ricrilture to beat down commerce in
the West where England had competi
tion, and buiid it up in the East where
Mhe enjoyed a muonopoly. ItL was left.,
however, for the Nort.heast., t.hrough
tie agency of S. B. 1 tiggles, to formi a
pairtnership wit,h ,iohn i n to douihle
the war obligations of t.he itttion

The stomach was very empty, con
alninir very littla food mater. t h.a
seem hent, on doing it great deal of
mischief.
1lut it should be remembered that
the wheat and cotton growers of the
Irite(l States have to pay '. per cent
for the imioney ised in the ciit.ivat ion
of their crops; that owing to restrict
ive legislation, which preventis cqrgoes
from shipping this way they have to
pay dotible freuilits to European muar
kets when across the ocean; that they
have to compete in the neutral markets
of the world with the pauper labor of
creation, the present. labor of t he Med
iterrailean, the fellahs of 1gypt, the
coolles of China and the ryots ol India
and, by this very silver legislation, at a
(isadvantaie of 35 per cent: that when
their prodice is sold they are not al
lowed by the laws of their country to
avail themselves of the advaitages of
this cheap labor against which they
have to contend at a disadvaageit of
35 per cent, buti must take t his money
back home and pay a bounty of over
;0 per cent to home Ianti facturers. If
not, they inms. pay to a ITniltedl States I
custom receiver 60 per cent, not only i
oin first cost, but also oii all ex penses to I
land it at ai A merican custom house.
These unjust hardships imposed upon
American farmers seem calculated to
have called forthi a disorderly growl
from old .Job hiiself.
I have answered your questions dis
cursively. I will now do so categori
cally. In doii so, however, I shall
proceed upon t lie supposition that they
are asked inlependent, of and irrelev
ant to party sirroundoigs. Of course,
as I am a Democrat, 1 am in favor of
carrying out. the party platform. To
announce a set of principles, go before
Lhe people, and after haviiig now the
ollices upon them to disregard them, t
would ble bilt, to perpetrato a fraud up
on the public. Speaking independent,
ly ot party enviroinents, in reply to
your <Itestion-whal, has any farmer
to gaini by the free coinage of silver? - I
I pointedly declined to commit myiell 1
to the propriet y of any such uinndiate
action, for two reasons: Ist. iecause
such ac.ion wouild transter tie henelit
of. the signioratte from the Govern
ment to the bullion holler. 2d. lie.
cause of' an apprehension I W-it the out
llow of gold would cause a temporary
coitraction.
Now, ai to your <iiestion, how we
would olpn this inarhet? First, this
appreheded cont.raction should be pro
vided against by the repeal of the 1l
per cent, tax oin each St,tte's share of
one billion dollirs of loc;,d issues pro
rated to the Statos according to their
population. with the special require
muent that each State should so pro
rat,V It according to counties. The rea
sons for this reqiuiremelt are obvious
ard conclisive. We aresi f1 fering more
from ai ill distrillt.ed than from a re
scricted vohume of curreiny. As sooi
as lo:al banks were ini operation I
would recommend not free coinage,
but tile free and unlimited ptirchase of
silver oil te plan' of the Snernan bill
int,il the vahle of tiie dollar iit sunk
to the level of ,he bulion value, -1121
grains stanlArd silver, and then open
the ilmints to free and unlimited coin
age at the rauio of 16 to 1.
Tl''his policy woutid drive the voluime
of gold to IErope, ald tholigh tile mints
might, remaini open to it t len ats now,
would practically pit lis up,n a silver
basis. Of the advantages we wouIld
