WHY WHEAT EOSE SO HIGH

mand for the Cereal Abnormally
Gtent-Au Interesting Talk "With
Coiigrensuiau De Graffenreld.
The newspapers that denounced William
Jennings Bryan and tlie Chicago platform
last year are pointing with priile to the
ride in tlie pries of wlieat and the decline
hi the price of silver and are saying ex
Mltmgly, "Wo told you m." And while
they are thus apparently huhlulng over
with enthusiasm, shouting in clarion tones
tliat prosperity is at our threshold, they
are lo-lng Mght of the luet that -iiu argu
ment the are now making fully sustains
the position taken b the silver men in tlie
lasL campaign .
Congressman 1C. C. 33e Graffenreld, or
Texas, who has devoted much tmieao the
study of the financial question, said to a
.party of "ueuds yesterday ilea notliiag
could he more easily explained tlian the
late rise m n luuit and the fall in silver.
It' an ill wind," said he, "that Wows s
no good. Our farmers are this year hlesi-'d
with abumlant crops and the wheatrjsro
duciug e.untries on the otliur side of the
ocean are up against it. Their ciops
have -goae l)ack on ihem, especially in In
dia, the country whose wheat comes into
onipeUtitiii wnli that of our own- In oilier
words, the demand for American wheat is
almost greater than the bupply, and hence
the big prices which the speculators are
just now reaping. 01 course, 1 am son-y
to say this will not always eonlhvio, 'or
next year the diinaudifor wheat by reason
of good crops on the olher side may be
only normal, and in that event our Tam
ers will .not receive any more for their
wheat man formerly.
"Let the mints oi the "United States,
England, Prance and Germany be opened
tonurrow io silver." continued Mr. Do
Graffenreid, "and 30U will see the iineo
of the white metal rise steadily until it
reaches the level of gold. "Why would it
ri-e' Simply because of the demand the
same as the demand now for wheat.
"Anoter thing to which I desire to call
your attention Is this: Since the fall of
Mie price of silver during the present few
week-, the gold press of the country, with
fiendish delight hus with one ace rd de
clared that oui standard silver dollar was
worth )t 40 cents and a traction, which
varies from day to day sometime .more,
sometimes Jess. It seens to me that the
advocate;- of the single sold standard are
bent on bringing aboutauother panic such
as v. e had in 1 Sy3. And tlie way they pro
Ioe Vj do Ills by denouncing our standard
sdver dollar, which, they claim, is uot
worth a d-.llar. If they can instill that idea
into the minds of the people.it will ininc
about one or the worst panics ever ex
perienced by this country. People who
own sUver dollnis will demand their re
demption m gold.
"Last year Secictary Carlisle,in a state
ment he made during the campaign, de
clared that ir necessary to maintain the
parity between the two uK'talb, it would
he the duty or the Government to redeem
silver dollars with gold dollars. By that
declaration Mr. Carlisle virtually repudi
ated silver as one or the moneys of final
redempt.on. Now, everybody knows that
eur standard silver dollar is worth a hun
dred euU and fiays a hundred cents of
debt as 11 u-li so as the gold dollar.
"Tins continued denunciation and libel
of our rocr hundred million silver dollar
and the charge that they are worth only a
liltleover -10 -ents apiece is not calculated
to inspire confidence m tiie Government.
Mure than anything else, the elinrse That
tuesllverd'illaris worth but atrifleoier-lO
ccutb, but will pay as much debt us the gold
dollar, is a sufficient answer to the gold
bugs. "This country Is big enough and strong
enough U, open its mints 10 silver, and if
that were done the price of sliver bullion
like thepnet of wheat would go up because
of IhederrantJ. Thepurcniiseofsilverbulh-.n

If the Government would buy allelic silver

not help matters much, for the Govern
ment tald still he discriminating against
the white metal.
"The only solution of the question is to
opn the mints to sdver tlie same as-gold.
Prosperity will never cume through Ihccuii
