boast when 1 say that I have givon much
thought to this matter of cheap transpor

clusion that tho trouble the causa of

Mississippi,? Can any one say engineering
skill cannot overcome tho obstruction
found there'' No. Why thon shall there
not be made a channel for our commorce
by its removal ? If one plan falls tako an
other, until the world la opened to us?
Uut what party has planted Itself on this
issue? .That rivor should be opened
made free. Tho trammels that fetter us
should be, cut loose. Thesi are quostions
worthy of our consideration.

THE 1'AMIU
Wo had a panic latoly a peculiar
panic. I remember tho panle of 1837. It
was tho result of ahrlnkage. The bills of
tbo banka became worthless, and Just In
proportion aa these bills approximated
worthlossness, tho peoplo wero deprived of
abllilvto pay debts, and do businoss.
Thon'tho cra.h ramo. Then catso tho
panic of 1850, tha result of stalo froo
..ti liaioil on state stocks. The
money power of tho country was by this
system placed in tho po ver of tho bankers.
For insianco, thoy would depress lr-

I havo heard latter day llnanciors aay-
log that It ia tho stamp of tha state that
make! money elves value to the circu
lating medium. How weak tboso men
must be. II my house burns down una
my gold coin melts and runs Into the
ashes, I gather it up, weigh it and get
its valuo in coin. If my greenback Is
destroyed by Dro, it Is gono.
The interests uf tho commercial world
donand a roturn to a gold and silver
bails for our currency; and this talk uf a
currency to bo regulated by the demands
of bussincss is folly. It would put us at
the mercy of secretaries of tbo troasuriea
and tho Jay Cooko speculators. I have
always s,Id,that if I had beon president
at the time of the panic I would have put
a receiver in tho first bank that
closed ita doora and would havo paid out
the last COOt. Hut tho Eaalem banks
closed their doors, and tho Weaiern banks,
being largo depositors in tho Kailorn
banks, were compelled to follow their ex
ample. And thus wore tbo peoplo robbtd.
Who is It that wishes to keep up the
greenback curroncy romovod troni a iro
laltc basis? Is It the farmer, or mechanic,
or merchant? No; It is tho men who
bet on tho prico of cold no not on gold,
but on tbo depreciation of the greenbacks.
To have gold is to havo as sure a thing as
four aces. Tho Democratic platform of
this state oxpres'os it well when it calls
geld and silver the money of the civilized
world. All I want ia to know that my
greenback is as good as gold. I am like
iho Frenchman, who, In a panto time,
wrote hia check and presented
it at a bank to draw h a
