VETERANS AND PRESS EN
Charleston may not be up-to-date
on some things, but when it comes to
real genuiue hospitality she is "striet
ly il' it," Latst week that a dr
tatIed thousands of peopl3 and they
made everybody feel as much at
home as if they were at a community
picnic. T be Veterans were taken to
every thing and every where, aud
the newspaper men were wade to
share and share alike with the Vets.
Every attention possible was given
the guests of the city and we know
that it will have the effect of going
a long way towards allaying whatever
prejudices exists between Charleston
and the country. The Young -Meu's
Business League tendered a banquet
at the Charleston Hotei to the mem
bers of;th .,press and around that
festive board the kindest of feeling
was expressed fur the welfare of the
"City by the Sea." Tae league is
composed of business men who re
alize the fact that Charleston is only
oue city in te State of Soutu.Caro
;iua, and that tuere are other citieis
and towns in this;State-that are in a
positio'n to givegCharleston active~
competition; this beiug tiue, these
suusioie business men do not propose
to zue sept mn a false position by
p)hiticianLs who have been doing
nothing in the past few yea're but to
kieep up an irritation between the~
couutry and the city; the result has
been that Gujarleston was the sutferer.
Tue Young Men's Business League,
have taken hold of this matter aunt.

entertained the country-folics their.
desire to create a better feeling wvas:
one of the most noticable and comn
mendable features of the occasion,
and we sincerely hope these efforts
will be ciowned with success; but
to succeed, they will have to "sit
down" on those who are responsible
for the present conditions and go to
work to put Charleston in full control

are identical witu the people of the
T1he cordial reception given the
people from all over the State last
week was but a small begining of an
era of good feeling and from a busi
ness standpoint it showed to Char
leston that it is to her interests to
offer the greatest inducements to the
country-loiks to visit the city often.
The natural market for the people of
this state is Charleston and there is
no reason why all of the produce
made in t he State cannot go there,
and if the people of that city will
s..stain and back up the Young
Men's Business League, by sending
to the rear the moss-backs who be

their ancestors and to the devil the
peakey Paradise Alley politicians
Charleston will take on a new growth
which will be felt from tbc battery
to the Line street, and the country
cousins will look forward to the day
when they are to knock the mud from
their plow shoes and put oi' a store
shirt to take a trip to and buy goods
in thbe nietroplis of South Carolina.
A large and enthusiastic meeting
was held in Charleston last Monday
night under the auspices of the "A.
P. A." and the orator was President
WV. J. H. Traynor. He denounced
Papal interference with our body poli
tie. He denounced trusts, combina
tions, national banks, and what he
termed the late gold-bond steal and
charged Congress with being corrupt
etc, etc, and his speech was vocifer
ously applauded. Had Ben Tillman
gone before the same people and
uttered'the same sentiments he would
have been hissed.
Senator Tilinman has returned to his
post in Washington and when the
bond investigation resolution comes
up again we think he will have some
thing of interest to say. We look for
a tilt between him and Senator Hill,
of New York,and when they do clash
it will be a battle of giants and the
other fellows had better hoist their
umbrellas or be drowned in the flow
They issued them by the bushel. Was l.
the stuff that George Law issued,
known as the George Law bubble
good money in England? If you had
barrels of cheap money what would
you do with it. They wouldn't take
it at the bank and I wouldn't take it
for a fee.
Johuson. I have been telling him
all the tme that he was all wrong;
that what he wanted was good money,
dear money, that will buy twice as
much this year as it would last. That
is the kind of money we want. He
says he wants money of the same
value all the time. What do you
think of him? He says he don't want
to pay, when he pays his mortgage,
imouey that costs any more to get of
either labor or property than the
money he borrowed. He don't see
the advantage of the growing pur
chasing power of money, nor can he
see how ueueficial it is to have every
thing else cheap. He don't even ap
preciate the lesson of economy which
our good President is teaching.
Lawyer. Johnson, your head is
level. you know that all we want is the
quality of money. It don't wake
any diterence about the quantity.
One dollar of the right quality is bet
ter than a thousand dollars of bad
money. Good money is what we
want. Unless money is good money,
the more you have of it the worse off
Farmer. But isn't the silver dol
lar good mnone%? If not why did the
Constitution provide for coining it,
and why was it always used when 1
was a boy and when times were good?
We thought it mighty good money
then and we had good times when we
had plenty of silver, and they tell me
it was used for thous Inds of years.
Why do you pretend that it is all the
same as Uoutedeiate money? I thought
the difficulty about the Confeder-.te
money was they issued it in quan
tities without rhyme or reason, and
t b-: govenmnlCt busted up and there
was nobody to father it, so it was not
money at all. . heard a gentleman
waking a silver speech the other
night, and he talked very sensibly.
He said that money was the creation
of law; that Aristotle said so more
than two thousand years ago and
that silver was good money as long
as it could be coined at the mint and
the law made it a legal tender. But
when itjcuuldn't be coined at the
mint then the siker itself wasn't
money at all. In fact, silver itself
never was money. Gold bullion ain't
money. You have got to have the
,taup of the government on it. When
you could take silver bullion to the
mint and have it coined it was just as
good as gold bullion. I remember
that very well. You are talking very
foolisaly wuen you compare good
silver money coined at the mint by
the great government of the United
States to tie paper of a busted up
ouiederacy or the Gleo. Law bubble
or the repudiated assignats of France.
Lawyer. It seems to me you talk
very xuooishly. Don't you know that
se:ver is only wvorth 50 cents and the
silver doilar is a 50 cent dollar?
IFarmer. No, I don't kno? any
thing of the kind. I can get just as
mauca with a silver dollar as I can
with a "old dollar, but the trouble is
the Umited States, after taking the
right to coin money away from the
States, won't coin it for the people,
and silver that cannot be coined of
course ain't worth as much as gold
that can be coined, because thaere
ia gfreat deal of silver and a great
deal of gold that is in use in the arts
a&.d whbat the arts don't consumue there
is no use for except for coin, and
when you stop coining it you make
it chevp. You open the mints as they
always wvere to silver just the same as
gold, and silver bullion will be just
as good as gold bullion, just as it was
for four thousand years as they tell
me, just asit was as long as I can
Lawyer. Thbe silver dollars in cir
culation are as good as gold dollars
because the government has agreed
to pay gold dollars for them whenever
they are presented, just the same as
the government has agreed to give
gold dollars for greenbacks and other
treasury notes. The silver dollars
wouldn't be wvorth anything unless
the government would pay gold dol
lars for them any more than the pa
Farmer. Squire, you are all wrong
or that man was the biggest liar on
earth who talked the other tnight
about silver. He said that the sil
ver dollar and the silver certificates
were not redeemable in gold; that
the law made all the silver dollars
that are coi.ned independent to staud
alone as silver dollars just the same
as gold dollars, and that the silver
certificates were by law redeemable
in the silver dollars and not in the
gold dollars, and that all the silver
dollars and all the silver certificates
stood on silver coin and stood alone
on that, and squire, he read the
statutes, saying that very thing. Now
did the statute lie, or are you trying
to hoodoo me?'
Johnson. Mr. Cleveland says that
silver dollars are not good money
and he wvon't make the bondholders
take them, and he wont make the
bankers take them, who want to get
gold to ship to Europe, but he gives
them gold every time. He says they
are entitled to gold. He says it
don't make any difference; because
our soldiers were paid in greenbacks
and silver and that everybody has to
take silver except the bankers. If a
man who wants to gamble in ~gold
and make money on it, or take the
gold out of the country, he must
have goli atnd he will give him gold
at any cost. He has been selbing
bonds, two or three hundred millions
of them, to buy gold for this very
purpose. Don't you see that the
silver dollar wouldn't pay off any
thinig unless Mr. Cleveland would
buy gold for everybody who wanted
gold, except of course the people of
this country, I mean the common peo
ple, t- e bankers and speculators must
have gold or the honor of the country
will be destroyed. Hasn't he in
volved the country during his ad
ministration with about three hun
dred millions of debt to give gold to
gold gamblers for the sole purpose
of maintaining the honor of the
Farmer. So it is more honorable
to give bankers and exporters of gold,
gold, than it is to give gold to the
Lawyer. All the difference in the
world Ynn see the great bankers of

FARMER AND MECHiANIC ON
Scene: Chicago, Illinois.
An Attorney, Farmer, and Johnson,
a Railroad Mechanie.
Johnson and the Farmer consult
Farmner. Squire, we bave come to
tsk your advice about the question of
Lawyer. I am counsel for the
First National Bank of this town and
it, is the only client I have able to pay
me a cent. I haven't collected a dol
lar from r~ny of you farmers in two
years. Why should you come to tme
ft r avice?
Farmer. The reason why we
haven't paid you is not because we
are dishonest and don't wont to pay
our debts, but because money is so
scarce and we can't get the money.
We can't sell what we raise for
enough to pay our taxes and interest
on mortgages. You know that most of
my neighbors have already been sold
out, and I have come to consult you
on that very matter-how we can get
more money, and ask you if the. free
coinage of silver, such as we used to
have whe4 we had good times, would
not give us plenty of money?
Lawyer. That is all the trouble
with you farmers. You are all the
tie trying to tamper with the cur
rency. Why don't you take the ad
vice of the bank as I do. Bankers
are engaged in the muoney business
and they know all about it. Free
oinage would give you plenty of
money, but would it be good money?
Was the Confederate money good
mone'? They had plenty of it. Were
Europe would declare that the credit
)f the United States wasn't worth a
cent if it wouldn't give them all they
want, but the people of the United
States love their government and will
stand by it notwithstanding the
President robs them to satify the
bankers. You see the only honor
that is left in this country is confined
tc New York bankers, who spread a
little out among the other bankers
:ad the New York bankers get all
thicr honor from Lombard street,
Loudon and Lombard street bankers
:et all their honor from Rothschild,
who is the fountain of all honor.
Johnson. Squire, I knew you
woul. l give him the clean stuff. You
understood what he wanted. I thank
you very much.
Lawyer. I am glad you and the
farmer came to me so that I could
give you sound advice. These farmers
ought not to be meddling with sub
jects that don't concern them. They
would ruin the country if they had
their way. Tbey would make dollars
as cheap as they were in times of
Jefferson and Jackson and make
wheat and cotton and everything
else they produce so dear that the
-hayseeds" would have a surplus and
all become upstarts, be sending their
children to school and wearing good
clothes and there would be no dis
tinction between bankers, lawyers and
the common people. I am very much
obliged to you Mr. Johnson, for
bringing him here where I can in
Farmer. This may be all very well,
but I thought the farmers were the
bone and sinew of the country.
Every time there is any trouble
farmers have to bear the brunt of it.
The boys who beat the red coats and
whipped their hired Hessians in the
revolution were nearly all farmer
boys. Farmers' boys turned out in
1812 under old-Hickery and cleaned
the English out at New Orleans and
it was the farmers' boys on both
sides that did such splendid fighting
in the last war. These bankers that
you talk about didn't even live in this
country. They speculated in bonds
and sold shoddy to the soldiers,
cheated them in every way and got
rich while we were vaving the country.
Most all of these rich fellows got
rich because they were skulking
cowards and staid at home while we
were fighting. Now you say the
country is for them and for nobody
else and if we don't make dollars
dear and men and other things cheap
there will be no distinction between
the banking aristocracy, the lawyers
and the common people. I tell you,
'Squire. you think you are an aristo
crat now because you are attorney
for the bank but these other lawyers
in town are just as bad off as the
farmers. In fact, one of them came
to me this morning and wanted me
to trust him for a pig. He said that
he had had no meat in the family for
a month and if I would trust him to
a pig it would help him out. The
fellowv urged so hard that I gave him
the fattiest little pig I had, and when
he took it home in his arms to roast
it his wife and children all came to
the door and the old woman actually
shed tears of joy because they were
going to have something to eat. You
had better look out for your retajaer
and stick to the hank if you don't
you will be in just as bad a fix as
that other lawyer.
Johnson. How unreasonable he
is. Why he is even opposed to an
aristocracy in this country, and I sup
pose that he will even be opposed to
the plan which has been recently
adopted of buying lords and dukes
for husbands for our rich girls so as
to raise our own aristocracy. I
shouldn't be surprised if he wasn't
opposed to that and want American
girls to marry Americans and de
grade themselves! But, Squire
everything has been a little blue here
for some time. Ten years ago things
were booming. Railroads and house
building and employnient for every
body. Everybody appeared to have
good times. What has made the
Lawyer. Silver agitation and
Populists. It is the complaints that
such men as this farmer here makes
about the good government which
we have, which destroys confidence.
Confidence is what we want. You
don't need any money if you can
really have confidence. You go into
any of the banking houses in New
York. You see they have good times
there. Why is it. They know they
have got all the money and nobody
else can get it and their confidence is
all right. The farmers ought to
know that the money is safe. It is
good money and safe in the banks,
and they ought to have confidence.
Confidence would make them enjoy
the economy wvhich it is necessary to
practice when you haven't got any
thing to eat. Confidence will do
Johnson. Your explanation is
perfect. I knew that these wretched
farmeis were to blame but I didn't
know exactly how it was. Now I
know. When they complain because
they can't get money to pay taxes,
and that they cant get shoes for their
children and because their wives are
worn out and sick from doing hard
work they shake the confidence of
the country. That is what is the
trouble. We must stop tneir com
plaints and teach them more econo
my; that will cure them. There is
no way to stop the extravagance of
the farmers but to keep money away
from them. If they get money the
first thing you know they will be buy
ing clothes for the children or some
thing for them to eat. Why, I be
lieve this farmer here, our friend
would be bad enough if he had plen
ty of money to buy a dress for his
wife. Such things have to atop. It
ruins the country. Nothing shakes
confidence so much as for a farmer
and his wife to have money enough
to buy clean clothes to go to church
with on Sunday.
Lawyer. You are a good and wise
man, and I will tell the eashierof our
bank when you go in there next time
to smile on you. Of course, I
wouldn't ask himi to loan you any
money, for that would make you ex
travagant, but he ought to smile on
you, I think. I think he owes you
a smile for your sound principles.
I hope what I have said will make
an impression upon you. There is
one other thing I wanted to tell you
about. These men who advocate the
free coinage of silver, every one of
them, is a silver baron. You might
nt thinkr it~ but there a not ne in

J. H. Zeilin & Co., Philadelphia, Pa.
the United States that ad, ocates the
free coinage of ilver that has not got
a silver mine worth ten millions of
dollars, at least, and. he wants to make
it worth twenty mrillions of dollars.
You see silver now is only worth
fifty cents on the dollar and he wants
to sell it to the government for a
dollar. You didn't know that we all
knew that you had a silver mine and
all the farmers bad. Now you see
silver is worth a little more than fifty
cents on the dollar. If you coined
all this silver the eilver dollars would
be only worth fifty cents. Still you
silver miners would be getting a dol
lar in silver.
Farmer. How do you make that
out? You say that if we could have
our silver coined the silver dollars
would only be worth fifty cents.
Lawyer. Just so.
Farmer. Then we would get a
silver dollar, would we? It would
be worth just fifty cents would it ?
Farmer. You said a minute ago
that silver bullion was worth fifty
cents now, and if you could only get
a silver dollar for it how would we
make any money ? But, squire, you
astonish me very much. Your pro
found knowledge makes me super
stitious. How you could ascertain
that all of us farmers are rich silver
barons. We have tried to keep it se
cret. We swear our children to keep
it secret and swear our babies when
they are a day old not to tell.
Lawyer. You must see now that
we have studied this question thor
oughly and found out all about your
resources. I am astonished that you
cannot see how you silver miners will
make money by coining your silver
into fifty-cent dollars, when your sil
ver is already worth that amount.
Farmer. I cannot see it.
Lawyer. That is on account of
your great ignorance. You suggest
ed a little while ago that money wvas
scarce and that demonetizing silver
made it scarce. Don't you know
that de~nonetizing silver destroyed
half the metalic money in the world ?
Farmer. Yes, I know it did.
Lawyer. Don't you know that by
estroying half the money would
make it plenty ?
Farmer. No, I thought by de
stroying half the money would make
Lawyer. In that you make a great
mistake. You must study your arith
metic again in which you will learn
that half is much greater than a
whole and that by demonetizing sil
ver the amount of money has been
increased,the money is very plentiful.
My bank says it was never so plen
teous in the world and that good se
curity was never so searce.
Farmer. I don't quite understand
how destroying half the money in
:-ease the quantity~but I do know
wby security is scarce; because our
farms ain't worth anything now.
The price has gone down so that we
cannot get anything for what we
have and of course wye cannot give se
curity. Tlhe bankers would rather
keep the money for us, because mon
ey is safe and as long as it grows
dearer they make money that way.
Lawyer." We must bring this dis
cussion to a close, because it is about
time that I must go to the bank and
prepare papers to foreclose the moert
gage on Dick Winter's farm.
Farmer. Has Dick gone up and,
you are going to close him out ?
Lawyer. Oh, yes. We have got
to close him out. His wife came to
church last Sunday with a bran new
calico dress on and the banker
ouldn't Stand it any longer. If he
ouldn't use his money any better
than that, he would have to put an
honest man on the farm. But before
on go I want to tell you one other
way that you farmers are doing a
great deal of harm. You are scaring
foreign capital out of the country.
You know every time one of your
children cries for bread that the gold
in ene of Rothschild's biggest bank
ing house in New York rolls over and
want's to go to England right away,
where it will be safe from the out
rages of the mob.
Farmer. Well, Squire, if capital is
as timid as that you had better go to
the bank and save what they have
got there from the danger of being
driven out of the country by the cries
of Dick Winter's babies when you
put him off his farm.
Johnson. Good-bye, Squire. I am
very much obliged to you for cor
recting the errors of my friend and
making everything clear, lucid, and

to the bank', because if you get kicked
