The hostilities of the day begnn hy Mr.
Horr remarking In a pointed manner that
Mr. Harvey "lead nn ssiy here yester
day upon the condition of tho world dur
ing the fifteenth century, especially up to
tho dlseovciy of America, 11''-. He lend
that statement without Its hiving been
called out at nil by me, ns I had not at
tacked that part of his book. Hut ho made
such nn elaborate effort to show the con
dition of things In the world from lluO to
IRK) that I have taken a little pains to
llnd out If 1 could whether there Is nny
truth in'tho reptescntatlons that ho make,
mid I llnd that hlstoiy leaves him In as
bad a condition lit this legnrd as it does
In regnid to the bulk of tho statements
hi 'Coin's rinuncl.il School.' "
Learned Author.. (Juot.-d.
Continuing, Mr. Horr quoted Professor
Thorold Itogcrs, Hnllam, Leber, Malthas,
Hndtnan nnd others to show "the lot
of the millions In Uurope was rising before
119.', and that of the feudal aristocracy,
with Its tyranny, was ciumbllng to a fall."
.Mr. Horr Mild: ".Mr. Harvey and his
free silver friends identify prosperity and
tho progress of man with the lot of the
feudal nobility of Uurope and not with that
of the tollers.
"Itogers, as well as H.ill.im, speaks of
'the gradual elevation of the people them
selves as opposed to the small number
of the rich nnd noble.' Later I shnll show
that In his tieatment of the present, as of
the past, Mr. Harvey stands as the ex
ponent of the rich anil not of tho tollers,
whoso welfare should llrst be consldcied
by the legislation of the state."
Not to Ho llllcrt.-d I'rnni till) Point.
Mr. Harvey replied: "When I volun
teered to explain thP preface to the
'School' yesterday without waiting for It
to be attacked, because cold standnr.l
papers all over the United States hud
charged that it was a fmgciy, that no su. h
quotation as was theio used uns ever
made from the report of anv monetarj
commission or any other nHlcl.il document,
1 lead from the lepoit of th United States
monetary commission of 171!. not for the
purpov,, of entering Into an aigument on
political eiononiv of the jeurs 1100 to ir.00,
but slniplj- to show that all of my friends
from New Yor!- nnd elsewhere, who had
aceUM'd me of loig.r, were wrong Xow,
I am not going to argue with .Mr Horr
that the monetary commission did not
know what they wire talking about. He
shall not get me at anv point of this de
bate to divert my mind tiom the tegular
in ',-uuii'iil and logical arrangement of the
debate If a man could put together words
that would convince an unthinking w-oik-Ing
man that he was better off to-day
by fur than he was In 1S7-', and who can
i-onvlnce a fa nil" r that he Is getting hlghir
pi Ices now than In 1S72, I would expect 111 in
to t-oniluio a cioud not studying history
that prices rose during the dark ages at
the veij time the were falling, and that
laboring men were faring well at the very
time when they vveie working as the serfs
Of the lonls of i'urope.
"Di. Adam Smith, an abln historian,
whose work I nut Into Mr Ilorr's hands
jesterday, ionllnn. all that there Is in
that monetary commission. Page 117 gives
you the table of the rle of prices that
contradicts every tiling that -Mr. Horr has
"Thus far we have considered two ques
tions, gold and sllvir in the money of the
constitution nnd the unit of value In our
monetary svsifin llxed by the fiamers of
the constitution, and that which esteil
as our motiutar unit from 17W to 1S7J. The
debate is of value thus far In eliminat
ing the doubt that has existed oil these
two points in the minds of tho people
a doubt that has been produced by mlsr.p
resentutlons made by those advocating the
gold staiuhud A leading of the debate
thus far settles theso two questions In
favor of the book we aro discussing,"
Supporting du.lgo lucent,
Mr Hoir: The matter wo wero talking
about when we closed last night was the
question whether the fnuners of tho bill of
178J intended to establish two measures of
vilue. .Mr Harvey criticised Judge Vin
cent for having decided that case in his re
marks jcsierday, but very tamely. In com
parison with tile statem.'nt-s which he m.nlo
about him In pi bit soon after he niado tho
derision; ho even called him dishonest In
that criticism. Now, Judge Vincent Is a
icputabl cltUeu, I tako it, of Chicago,
Some private individuals submitted a ques
tion to him and he decided It as he honest
ly believed was right, nnd there is this p
eullarlty about It it Is right. (U-iughter )
Here Is what Judge Vincent decided "It Is
undoubtidly true that the milled dollar, as
It was then eurient, wns the starting point
and tho number of grains that compose a
gold dollar was ascei tallied by dividing the
nunibor of grains in the silver dollar by
llfteeu. Hut this does not alter the fact
that the units wcie expressed In gold and
sliver. On tlio contrary, It teem to show
that lsith weio made units of value. Tho
word unit was eniploird as- the equivalent
of dollar, and the. .loll ir was to consist of
either oua of two differ .nt things, one.
tenth part of 2l7'i grains of gold or 37lll
grains of sliver, just as equal values may
be embodied In given weights of any two
given commodities, such .is wheat or coin.
A unit of value Is the unit In which values
are expressed. Tho values both of gold ami
silver aie expressed in tho act of llai, to we
have two nulls of value. We have two
units of value. If both had not been so ex.
pressed wo could not have bimetallism "
XIr. Horr also quoted (x-Dlreeior of the
Mint 13. O, Leech, that the laws authorUe
both a gold dollar unit and a sliver dollar
milt, dlfiereut from each othtr In Intrlnslo
value. That -was the reason ho (Leech)
pioposed the law of IS?.' and W3.

Mr. Harvey: Yesterday at tho close,
after I had quoted as uuthority for silver
being tho unit, tlio statute Itself, tho lit
terauees of Secretary Gallatin, a decision
by Chief Justice Chase, of the supreme
court of itlie Pulled States, ami otlur nu
merous authorities. Including itoswell O.
Hoir, of New York, Mr. Horr then ad
mitted that the silver dollar was the unit
of vulue, and the record of jesteiday shows
that. Now, In view of his attempt to try
to twist something back into the discus

before we get to that which Is in the sec

Judge Vincent knows what bimetallism is,

Mr. Horr, following on this subject, wild:
We now conn-to the dl'Ciissloti of the law
which chnngc.1 this nation from a bimetal,
lie nation to u single standard nation, the
law nt 1S71, Willi It Hruther Harvey kindly
names a 'crime" It has been willed that
so long there Is nothing novel In the
name I purtoe to show you during this
ills, usslou Hint no law- has ever been
passed by the Ameiltwut congress which
was more completely and filllv understood
than the law or 1 S73. The statement which
he lead to vm that the schema was con
cocted In London Is a "Impio nserllon,
upon which he cannot piodu.e one s. in
tllhi of reputable truth not one word It
has been a good many ears since IhigUnd
dictated the legislation or this countrj.
They have had trouble to do It ever since
177t.. (Laughter.) They would experience
as much dllllculty now as they did then If
they should attempt it. The law or 1S71
hud Us origin, ns all such lnws have, in
the brains of otperts. The question of
coinage, mintage. Is a most Inti Irate one.
It is one of the most complicated pioblems
with which phlloophliul men have ever
grappled. It has been a pioces of devel
opment from the earliest stages of liuninu
ltvdown to the ptescut time, vvhirh has
given us the present sjstem of money,
though not perfect, ns perfect ns it has
come to be, at this time. If anybody will
read the ri ports of the Confederate con
gress of the Pnlted States, the one that
came Immediately after the colonial con
gress, the will llnd tint nil the men who
even assumed to be able to discuss the
matter Intelligently could bo counted on
the lingers of my two hands.
Mr. Harvey: -Mr. Horr says that I have
no proof Hint the scheme wns concocted
In London to demonetl7e sliver In the
Cnlteil States. When I was a boy 1 went
Into a court house one day to hear n crim
inal trial nnd I lie.inl a lawver s ly "When
a cilme Is committed and ou want to
detect the rlinlniil, look for the mnn that
Is benellted by the cilme." (Applause)
Itp.isonlng by Induction will more Invaila
bly locate the criminal thnn any uncertain
human testimony. Sliver was demonetized
in niiglnuil, and In llngliind onlv, prior to
the day it wns demonetized In this eoun
trv. That wns where the movement started
Hint is another evidence. London bank
ers Initiated the Paris confcience In 3&'7.
nt which Mr John Sherman wns present,
therefore I have the right to say the con
spiracy originated In Ixmdon.
Sir. Hnrvey Hrivrs the Null llonir.
Mr. Horr siys that tho science of money
Is hni d, to understand. liver since the
money lenilets of the wot Id shackled the
people of the world nnd taught the people
that monev wns hard to understand. (Ap
plause.) That It Is one of the dlfllciilt
things, as Mr. Horr once said In his
speech, "It gives mo a headache to think
of It " (Laughter) And ou are not com
petent to study It or understand It.and ns
long ns they can make ou believe that
they have j on In their power. You may
stu.lv chemistry and can understand the
most dllllcult problems or that science and
other sciences that would make n hunk
er's head dizzy to contemplate, we are
told, but you ennunt understand the sim
ple proposition of money, that which you
come Into the use of every day. Mr Horr
has only taught In this dehate a proposi
tion that it is to the Interest of every
selfish mone lender In the world to ad
vocate, and he is here advocating It. (Ap
plause) In 1S73, when this treacherous net was
pissed, there was no specie currency In
tills countiy. During all the soars from
17W to IMil, when it was actually In use
and being tested for Its merit, no one pro
posed to demonetize cither of the metals,
except some inoiicj lenders from Htirope,
who proposed it In 1S.".I. (Applause ) Hut
ut that time. l!i73, when It wns not In cir
culation and was not needed, the move
ment was begun and consummated. And
as one congressman said, when the bill
was offired In congress, "we are not using
gold and silver as money, have not yet
consl.ieie.l an act for tho resumption of
specie iMvincnt, and the introduction of
tills bill nt the picsent time cither mentis
a trick or Is u farce worthy of being cari
catured by Thomas Nast."

This closed the debalo for the day, nnd
questions being In older, tho first was by
Mr. It. L. Iillss to .Mr. Harvej:
"Tin. total coinage of sliver hy the Phila

whether the mistake was made by taking
the Philadelphia mint or not, but I did statu
the amount at t37,i,0W less silver coined
before 1S73 than was really coined, and nt
tho same time. It was to tho interest of my
argument to state it nt all it would stand.
Here's a Kansas City .Mini.
The next question was by O. II C.nnn of
Knnsas City ".Mr. Hnrvey asserts tint
the mints wero open to the free and unlim

.Mr. Hnrvey: Mr. Jpfforson did not olon

act of congress. Mr. Jefferson dliected
(the mints being open to tho free coinage
or all kinds of silver coin) tho mint illtec

Mr, Horr The first question I havo Is by
James llolllnger. I seo he asks us both to
answer It. I will nnsvver It and then put It
to Mr, Harvey: J hy Is It I have had so
little silver or gold since the passage of the
act of 1673?" Is hU question. It is impos

three-quarters of the bridge wns rebuilt
and still stands intact.
At 10..".1 this morning the east bound pas
senger train, heavily loaded, passed over
the bridge. The vibritlons ,iued by the
train hn.l not censi-d when n freight train
of twenty-four cars followed The train
pissed In safetj- until within three spans of
the end, when suddenly, with lightning
swiftness, a trestle gave wa and the
whole train fell thiougli the opening, piling
up In a most frightful mass, grinding the
cars Into kindling wood and heaping the
Immense weight on the body of Mrs. Al
