Th- Hwt,.h Herald la forcibly stntrk
by the lnincflncf of the reports a to
the increase of imports of Wools and
Woolen good for th" past eleven month,
and proceeds to argue that the American
people are reaping tremendous benefits
from the reduction of the tariff in that
direction. After referring to the fact
that the receipt of wool from abroad
were almost double the Importation of
raw material during any similar period
In the hlstorv of the country, that pa
per says: "tt may he wild that this Im
portation comes In to take the place of
the great falling oft that has occurred
In the production of domestic wools, but
this I hardly the case."
But even If the home product shntttd
continue undiminished In nuantlly there
la a little matter of n difference In price.
Which the ITernld passes over lightly,
that has a very large place In nn hottest
discussion of the subject.
According to the statistics sent out
from Washington tho American product
last year amounted to more than 29$
million pound. The present tariff law,
which Is responsible for the enormous
Increase of Importations of which that
pafier boasts, Is responsible for reducing
the price which the producer receives for
his wool by an average of 10 cents a
pound.
This robbery of the farmer to pay
the cost of the Increased business of the
importer amounts to the enormous total
of very near 30 million of dollars. And
yet the Herald says: "To the hundreds
of thousands of farmers who raise sheep
the difference of a few cents a pound
in the price of wool, while no doubt
recognized as a loss, Is not one likely to
occasion a cessation of the sheep In
dustry. It Is JiiKt ns easy and
Just ns profitable to raise sheep on a
farm, even with the prices of wool that
now prevnil. ns It is to raise hogs, cat
tle or horses."
There you have in a nutshell the con
densed wisdom that underlies the whole
free trade argument. No American pro
ducer, they would have It, hns any right
to complain of being robbed, simply be
cause every other producer Is being
robbed atso.
Thirty millions of dollars taken from
the American farmers In a single year
on one branch of trbelr Industry alone
and for the benefit of the foreign wool
grower, Is the whole story told nlmost In
a word. It may be a good thing for the
manufacturers of Massachusetts, as
long as they can force their operatives
to work for starvation wages, but the
farmer pays the bill.
ISU-sTMh TALKS.
No amount of advertising not backed
up by the goods advertised will estab
lish a profitable and permanent business.
Kansas City has been long telling the
world of the business advantages to be
found here and has been reasonably suc
cessful in demonstrating that the claims
ate well founded. Its trade and In
dustries have held up wonderfully well
during an extremely trying period, and
all along through the season of general
business distress it has been steadily
lmptoving.
The leal disnstor to local prosperity
which came some years ago was not
from the unisersnl destruction of trade
throughout the country, but it was a
natutnl result of wild speculation or
speculation tun mad. The general busi
ness panic camo afterward, when many
of the disasters which had caused the
local distress had been felt and their
effects largely cleared awaj. Coming
upon the city at auoli a. time the destruc
tion of business and the overthrow of
confidence which upset tho whole coun
tiy would be Hue- to lning about u halt
in the upward tutn of affairs but it
did noL stop the wheels.

A great many people nre posesed of
the Idea that anything that comes from
across the water Is necessarily superior
to that which Is made In this country.
There seems to bo something IrresUtlble
ln the word "Imported" when tacked on
to fabrics and other goods displayed In
the show windows and the unpatriotic
purchaser who prefers the Imported to
the domestic goods deserves to get taken
In. as he very frequently Is. The Idea
seems to be that the American manu
facturer, that greedy beneficial y of the
"robber baron" tariff, is the only one
who uses "shoddy" In the manufnetute
of fabrics and that he thus ekes out his
enormous profits by the use of Inferior
quality of material.
Nothing Is further from the truth. Tho
only temptation to the use of shoddy
comes when manufactured goods are ad
mitted at such a low rate that either
wngos must bo reduced or the quality of
the goods made here suffers. It is in
evitably the wages that go down.
A leading Boston firm recently dis
played in its windows a large exhibit of
American made ginghams, wool dress
goods, prints and silks, and It attracted
wide attention from Its- very apparent
superiority to the same class of Im
ported goods. The public was able to
see at a glance how It had been Imposed
upon and how It had been buying, under
high sounding foreign names and nt
high "imported" prices, goods which
Were in reality far inferior to domestic
goods of the same class. This country
can compete with the world iti anything
If It Is not compelled to reduce Its work
men to the level of the foreign laborer,
for whenever a tariff policy is put Into
effect that brings the foreign and do
mestic manufacturer into direct competl
tion it is tho laborer who suffers first
and most.
Albeit Flienis, an erstwhile newspaper
man of Kansas City, writing for an
Kas.tern magazine, takes occasion to tell
some tthojesnme truths about Kansas
City and hei "boom" wttieh is such n
bugbear to those who do not believo In
progress. A clipping from "The South

Chicago. July 23, ISO.",.
I hnvc been a listener and n spectator
for one afternoon to Hie Hoir-llnney
debate. And I Use the word "spectator"
advisedly, for tho occasion Is drnmtttc
as well as Instructive.
To understand this tournament It Is
well lo refer lo the challenge and pur
IMjse. The New York Tribune of a week,
ago the lOtb of July told the country
that lo head oft the pernicious Influence
of the little Ik k called "Coin's rinnn
elal School" it had nt the solicitation of
friends sent linn. Itoswell CI. Horr, of
its editorial ataff, to bold a public de
bate with W. It. Harvey, the author
of the "Coin" school book. So much for
that part of the matter.
In the prog! amine ns published the
debute was to lust for eight sittings', or
days, of thtee hours each, cut up Into
ten mlutile speeches each day to be
devoted to one chapter of "Coln'a rinati
elnl School" Which would cover the
whole of tt. That Is the case made up
for the debaters. It will thus be seen
that the whole movement on the part
of the gold men was, its the New York
Tilbuno decl.ued, an effort to break tho
force of "Coin's" book. There has rarely
been a higher compliment paid a book
of nny soil than this. It is not really
then the question of gold and silver,
per so, that i.s tin Issue, for Mr. llorr is
not a tln.incial authority tit nil, and Mr.
Harvey la a young intin, who until his
contribution to the sliver discussion was
unknown to fame. To have dlstuibcd
the money power of the world In so
shott a time Is enough to turn the head
of an ordlnuty man. So this con
cocted and concerted attack on his book
through tho person of its uuthor Is an
unexampled spectacle.
I am not going to discuss or debute
the question here, but to give the debate
as to Its put pose and range and as I see
It. Mr. llorr is n gentleman some C3
ycats old, physically btrotig and robust,
and one of the most effectlvo stump
ctimpiigneiH in the country, lie Is quick
and shiewd, litis the nerve and manner
of a pitictlced debater in political cam
paigns, acquired lit ti genet ation's prac
tice, and benlde all this has had six
yeais expetiencc as n debater In con
greb. He is, too, a writer of suiilclent
force to be for ycats on tho staff of tho
New Yotk Tribune. Mr. Harvey is a
young man, looks to be nbottt :tu, and
has never had any of the foicii'dc ex
perience or training of his opponent.
He Is quiet and unassuming in his
manlier, with a soft, low -toned voice,
and slow in speech in everything the
icverse of his eueigetlc opponent. He Is
a student, given to facts nnd to terse,
practical and luminous .statement. Krotn
the occasional Hash of his eyes, darker
than those of Mr. Horr, It can be seen
that ho Is capable of excitement nnd In
tense feeling, but -o far in the debate
bo hns kept himself In admirable control.
It can be seen at once the diffetence
In the two men, and it is very haul to
resist the impreslon that the principal
object of Mr. Horr is to force him Into
a peisonal contest in which he might
lose bis balance and temper both a Held
of controversy in which Mr. llorr is a
master. Of course my sympathies aic
with the side of Mr. Harvcj, yet if hn
was unequal to the ordeal he Is sub
jected to I could, like the gold press
With Mr. Horr, admit the fact. But nny
candid reader of the debate must admit
that so far Mr Hiuvey has adhered to
the question and to tho programme of
tho debate much closer than his op
ponent, and as to facts and authoiitles
for his statements, theie Is no compari
son between them.
It is no argument to say that it thing
has "no sense" in it it would be more
like It to show whetc It lacked sense. It
Is not vital to the question of gold nnd
silver whether certain representatives
apd senators In congress arc honest men
particularly hen no one assails their
Integrity. It is not vital to tho ques
tion whether Mr. Horr love, tho laboring
man or not but it would bo a matter of
interest to know whether file policy ho
defends is loving in its operation.
When the debate, tlpis far, is read In
cold print the fact will stand out that
Mr. IIane has added to the monetary
literature of the day a mass of historical
and flnniKinl information that will give
n new Impetus to the study of his book.
"If I am not mistaken," as Mr. Hotr so
often sajs, It is written somewhere in
the sacred tuiiun that "lie makes his
enemy to praise him." This debate that
tn the boast of the New Yotk Tribune
was to break tho Influcncu of "Cotn's"
book will give It one of the most tre
mendous adveitisements ever received
by a work of its kind will give it a
prestige in financial llterntute akin to
that of "Trilby" In romance.
In fact, that may be said to havo been
done in the flist half of the debate. The
student of the book will bee that all the.
basic facts upon which "Coin" predicates
the argument of his book have nltcady
been gone ovor, and not one of them
has been refuted or even weakened, but
on the contrary has been siiengthened.
I will refer to one of them, and the one
that I feared would bo most icadily as
sailed. I allude to the conspiracy
chaiged In the passage of the act of 1S73.
uf course the testimony, pto or con,
must be hugely circumstantial, for the
Journals of the two houses of congress
aro there and tho proceedings nre In tho
Congressional llecord, I must confess
that this record, when nil collected and
giouped together. It most staitllng. Tho
silver dollar ns a, legal tender was in the
bill us It pawed both houses and ns It
went to the committee on conference,
and Mr. llatvey states the p.ulla
menUry rule correctly when ho bids
Mutt a conference committee lias only

discussion nny further tltnn he forces

tle sent by llio New Yotk Tribune to
destroy the prostlgo of "Coin's book"
It may be admitted tlmt Mr. Horr has
been n laboring man ns a fanner bov,
ns a brnketnun on n freight ttaln, as
a baggage mnh, a logger In the pine
woods, a miner, a banker nnd a con
grcfsinnn nil honorable callings. But
he Is now the accredited servant of the
Tribune, sent by It, detailed by It. to
demolish "Coin," nnd though ho labored
for a whole hour to demonstrate bis
nffectlon for labor, yet It had nothing to
do with the question The Tribune was
behind Mr. Horr, Is there nil the time,
ami ho Is simply earning his salary by
talking for It against "Coin" In person,
lnend of writing against him, ns ho
has been heretofore for Its columns.
The Tribune Is u jjold organ, and as
the late ptemler of Hnglnnd was son-in-law
to the house of Itothschlld, the
Trlbttno is son-in-law to the great bank
ing houo of D. O. Mills and the New
India quicksilver monopoly As a rep
resentative, then, of tho Tilbune, Mr.
Horr's tears over labor tind his coming
till the way to Chicago to preach gold
monometallism In the InlPiest of the
laboring man Is .something like the shed
ding of other and traditional tears that
have no suit In them. It is all very,
very funny and very suggestive its well.
One of the remntknblo things, too,
nbottt this debate I.s the sudden change
of front on tho part of tho gold press.
For example, one of the Boston papers
deprecates it and uses thlt very slg
nlllcant language as to the effect of Mr.
1 loir's failure. It says, as T remember
reading it yesterday, that it wits un
fortunate, because so many people were
apt to attribute "the failure of the
advocate to the weakness of his cause."
This when the debate wvs only two
days old Is nt least not backing their
champion.
But alde from the merits or demerits
of the debaters, the truth is that tho
historic recotd, facts, traditions and
usages of the American government and
people, ns vv ell as of mankind for all ages,
are on tho side of silver ns a money
metal, and gold has no life or usage
other than us a companion money metnl.
And It has only been when mlllionalio
banket i4 and monopolists became pos
sible and common that gold was ever
thought of as the sole measure of values
and as the one ultimate redemption
money. If theie were no millionaire
lenders nnd no blllionalie banking
houses tho exclusive use of gold would
not be thought of It is no wonder Mr.
Horr falls before history and facts, for
there is neither behind his cause.

In an article entitled "Booms, West and
South," Albert l'henls, who Is remembered
as an old resident of Kansas City, has the
following to say of oui "boom" In the
Southern States, a magazine published in
Baltimoie:
"Condition" in Kansas City nre fre
quently pointed out by those who say of
their own city, "Heaven save us from a
boom ' Well, let Ub look Into Kansas City.
I'p to fifteen years ago it had lesi than
GO.OjO people; it had a mule car service,
stieets of bottomless mud, an inadeqtmto
sewer sjstem, and most of Its buildings
were makeshifts. Its boom was a tierce
one, it is true I'ortuncs were made in a
year, and lost almost ns quickly. The
accumulations of a lifetime wero In some
instance swept away entirely, and wrecks
of speculators are strewn far and wide Hut
the tandle in which the moths were slnffeil
still bums on There Is a splendidlv built
dtv of moie than loe.GOO people, with mote
miles of cable railway than nny but two
other American cities, a perfect sewer sjs
tem, asphalt and stone paved streets ev
etywhere. bulldinss which would look well
in New Yotk, and a volume of business
which Klves It rank In the dealing house
rporls alongside of cities of double Its
population. As ill tn till, undertakliii;,
even the construction of a ten story build
ing, at least i.lle lilt is usually sacrificed,
so In the boom vvhi.h makes a city there
must be dlsastet and llnaiiil.il death to the
individual, which, while lamentable, is
nevertheless an apparently unavoidable
Incident in the lnpld oi great development

To tho Hdltor of the Journal.
I offered the b-dovv communication to tho
Times for publication, (homing It a. perti
nent stibjtc-t, but they declined, as It did
not ucioid with their sentiment':
The strong advocacy of silver by Mr.
C.irlllt and Hoke Smith, befoie they be
came menib'!., ot Ml Cleveland's cabinet,
and thcii ludhal change of senilnunt aft
crwaids, have luen often commented on in
tho puhlli pricct but J have seen no refer
ence to the nme Inconsistency on the part
of J. St, rllng Morton As hp made n
s-peeoh lure In K.in.-as City in the campaign
ot ISM or lifts I will not be certain as to
the datt, will you pleano examine your
tiles to see if his speech vvao reported?
I esioitol hlin to the meeting and I be
lieve I Introduced J i int. I was an other of
tho t lub and Democratic candidate for
mavoi about that time.
Hut what Is more to the point, I heard a
splendid grand old Democratic speech, and
the two principal points In It were tho tar
In, wlikii he handled In a mif-teily way,
and the itiralgnment of the Itepubllcan pir
t) for the demonetization of silver, which
he denounced is tho crime of 1S73. He
pictured in dark colois how It had injured
and would destroy the piosperity of tho
country, und bring poverty and ruin to tho
ina-ses In fact, he stirred my blood to
hot indignation against such an Infamy.
Ills language was not less severo than that
of John O. Carlisle, when ho said: "Tho
demonetization of silver is tho greatest
crime ever committed against tho prosper
Ity of a people 111 the history of the world."
This wus the doctrine taught by all Dcmo
cints until Mr. Cleveland's second admin
istration. What shocks all my sensibilities Is to see
mni like Carlisle, Smith and Morton, who
taught us what a crime the itepubllcan
pirty committed In 1S73, In demonetising
silver, should make themselves parties to
such a crime, and help to consummate tho
uif.inileH the) picture,! in such horrid and
truthful coon
What greater humiliation cirv come to
the Demoeiutlc party thin to see one of its
Idols, like John O. Carlisle, revamping and
delivering John Sherman's old speecht-,
which he and other leaders of the Democ
racy havo answered a thousand times Jn
the last twenty yeais?
What shocking Inconsistency, after such
a speech as 1 heard from Mr Morton, lo
llnd him tho author of that silly letter on
"Sound .Money," which wi Intended to bo
facetious, but width i a grim mockery of
the sufferings and mill of the masses which
he so elotuentlv portrajed as the result of
the crime of 1W. which crime he Is now so
zealousl) defending and aiding to consum
mate. Can Democracy reach any lower depth of
degradation than to hav a president elect
ed b) lis votes, and hU cabinet olllcer.s
sinning at silver a "unsound money,"
turning the United States treasury over
to the ltotlmlilld's gold s)ndlcate, and Its)
piobpeiltj io tho oaprleo of gold gamblers?
Senatoi i'ugh, who has been hit,h In lha
counsels of his party for the past lirty
vearw, declares he never heard of sliver be
ing "unsound money" until Mr. Cleveland'
second term. Since which he has sent out
his periodic diatribes against silver ies "un.
sound mone) " und ids cabinet otllcen as
stump speikeis to destroy the only hope of
the people's ludeinntlon trom poverty, ami
leleasc- fiom financial slavery to IZngiand.
Can it bd possible that In tho sail liouy
of fate, he who was trusted as a patriot
and leader, lias betrayed hli country and
his. paity, and so great. Is this dominating
luiluenee and thut of tho gold oligarchy
that his cabinet olllcertt forget their own
solemn denunciation of a cr and par
ticipate In it, und forsakinit isti'iicy,
paiiy principles, honor and p.. ism,
