lull their metallic currency, thereby
greatly enhancing tho diliiciiliy and the
danger ol the proposed resumption oi
specie payments, Mini unjustly increasing
t he burden ot every inuiviuuui ai larte.
Resuhnl that we view witli just alarm
the position taken by the president on
this question in his late message, and we
have good reason to believe that his
udiiemetit has been warped and miss
KUided bv the bad counsels ot his consti
tutional advisers into tne adoption oi a
line ol policy which would give the bond
holders an undue ana unjust auvuuiagc
greatly to the detriment ot the people.
We have searched in valu inroiin ins
message for any word ot true comiort t"r
the sti'U'TJius.' mass by whose labor tin
money inu.-t be earned to pay these
bonds. We regard Iris suggestion that
bv vielding to the demands ol the public
creditors these bonds may no exena wu
for others at reduced interest us a de
lusion. There are two parties interested
tils question those vtho are to pay,
.s well aathoso who are to leeelve pay
ment. We demand that justice simple
jiii-tlct biidoueto both by restoring the
o!d. limoOionored staiidard measure ot
values. The l urdeus ol government will
then rest lightly upon the shoulders of a
prosperous people. But we see no hope
of returning prosperity In the financial
policy ot the president and ma ntaiauvu
licsohed that the holdf r3 ot government
bonds not only have w) right, legil or
equituble, to demand payment otherwise
according to ineir expresseu terms, out,
the government cannot, Willi due re
irard to the rights of the people, waive, its
option to nay m silver or gold, iimi re
strict Itsell to payment In gold only; and
that when thn attempt to Co this is mail
bv legislatiug out of existence the wlioli
silver coinage ot tlie country as legal
tender and at the same time depreciating
thevhlueot one ol its most Important
pro lucts In the markets ot the world, the
consequences ot this nefarious scheme
are so larreaching and disastrous that tt
calls for unmaasured denunciation
JltsolotJ that the proposal to pay the
bondholders exclusively in gold, which
tlieir bonds do not call for, and at thu
same time to demonetize silver so tar as
to make It legal tender to some small
amount lor all other kinds of Indebted
ness, would be partial class legislation
ot the very worst character. Me em
phatically reject all such suggestions
1 he money mat is good enough for the
people is good enough tor the bond
holders. e demand that the silver dor
lar be returned to its lull legal tender
quality, in payment of all debts, both
public and private, and w'e will be satis
ilea witn nothing less ttiun this, and w
pledge ourselves to vote lor no man lor
congress who is not lully committed
lavor oi tins measure.
JUtoletd that we will resist the con
summation ol this wrong by all honor1
hie means within our power, We ca
upon both houses ot congress to lu-l
upon ti e repeal ot the demonctlzatloiv
act anu inu restoration oi iuu silver
dollar to Its rightful place in our
currency, and If the president shall by
the ue of his negative succeed in delect
ing the hill, then we wilt call upon con
