The campaign of education, a it ifl
railed, in on and the political orators are
warming up to their work. It has
been the experience that politic" in a
game in which the winner expect" to
make a large pot of money for himself
and all his tnenda and relation. For
thin reason the fight in often verr bitter
and, instead of a campaign of education,
it more often turns out to be a campaign
oi misrepresentation. nenkleclniru8 that
the declining prices of the past twenty
years have been caused by the demoniti
azation of silver, while the other side sets
up for its argument l hat modern machin
ery has so reduced the cost of production
that prices have tallen on that account.
ruth may be right, or partly right, and
both may be wrong. I!oth arguments
look well enough on the surface, but who
shall decide whether or not either side is
right? There seems to be a general agree
ment on both sides that the reduced in
come of the producing class has been the
cause of the present distress and hard
ship among the people and of the depres
sion of business. Neither side appears to
place much stress on the fact that Amer
ica has had to compete with India and
Argentina iu agricultural products and
has been undersold right along, so that
this is one of the causes, if not the princi
pal one, of the lower prices now ruling
for farm products. It is not clear how
free coinage of silver would enable the
I'nited States to compete with these
countries unless the laboring man here is
reduced to the condition of the laboring
man in those places, and this, no one
will allow, is at all desirable. However,
the fight will go on and the voters will
gather to bear their respective champions
and applaud their utterances, whether in
accordance with facts or not.
The stock market has been taking a
downward turn during the past week and
prices now average about tbe lowest for
the past two years. ( in the present levej
it would seem a good policy to buy the
better class of securities to lay away
until the market turns, as it certainly
will some day. (iold continues to go
abroad and the treasury reserve is now
below the ? 100,000,000 mark. There
are rumors of preparations for another
bond issue, and altogether the bear trad
ers are bat ing quite a picnic.
There have been no new developments
in the copper market and prices hold
steady at previous quotations of i,
ll' cents for Lake, with business slowly
rn jving except for export, and here, the
demand is fairly large, absorbing all the
su-plus production of the mines not used
in home consumption.
The ISigelow-Lewissohn management
has adopted n commendable policy of is
u'n? official statements occasionally to
stockholders, giving them some idea of
the physical condition of their properties.
The Merced mill is to be shut down until
the ore reserves iu the lower levels have
been sufliciently opened to furnish the
mill with rock to stamp. The upper
levels have been thoroughly tested and
the ore found to be of a low grade and
unprofitable to mine. The I.oaton &.
Montana has sold its product far enough
ahead to warrant tbe payment of regu
lar quarterly dividends of f 2 per share

been very dull recently and the trading

taut economic question that can possibly en
KaKo tho attention of wugo eurncr In thin or
any other country.
The Wage Karner'i Interest Iu Good Money.
Whether tho general business of the people
ehull bit transacted with C'mx.1 money or bud
money, whether tlio wnyes of lubor shall be
paid in a sound and stitblu currency, with full
purchasing power in tlio market where they
are exchanged for tlio iiecesMU'Us of life, or in
a depreciated and lluctuatini; currency, liav
intc no fixed valuo nnd therefore bearing no
permanent relation to tho current price of
commodities, aro questions which uffect tho
comfort and happiness of every homo and the
noaco and prosperity of every community,
While all are deeply Interested in tho settler
mentof these question it 1 unfortunately the
cumo that nil will not bo eiiuully u fleeted by an
erronoou decision upon them. Tho wealthy
man, the man who bus accumulated property
or honrdod money, 1 ulwuy exempt from
many of the most serious consequence of a
financial or industrial disturbance. He ha
both means and credit, und, whilo ho may be
subject eil to much los und Inconvenience,
neither ho nor hi family will ho pinched by
hunger or compelled to go without raiment or
It lti tbe poor man and the man of moderate
mean tho man w ho ha not been fortunate
enough to accumulate projurty or money, but
who depend upon hUwagi nor Uxin tin) prod

porting himself and hi family that nlwaya
fuel the first und most diHiistrou effect of a
busines or Industrial depression, no matter
whether it result from a depreciated und 11 uc-
tuating currency or from other cause. Huch
a man ha nothing to dispose of but hi labor
and nothing with which to support himself or
hi family but Lis wnge or thu proceed of
his own labor, und any policy that even teni
jKirurily suspend or obstructs the industrial
progress of the country by diminishing the
demand for tho product of Julr, or by im
pairing the capacity or disMisitiin of capital
to employ labor, must be Injurious to hi in
terest und inllict more or less suffering upon
all who urn dc)cmlcnt upon him. Ijibor can
not bo hoarded; thu idle day i gone forever;
lost wnge are never reimbursed, and there'
fore stoutly employment and good pay in good
money aro essential to thu comfort and happi
m ss of thu American lalmrer r.nd his wife and
children, und ho will bo unfaithful to himself
und to them if ho does not Insist umii the
adoption und maintenance of such a policy as
will most certainly preserve, tlio value and sta
bility of nil our currency nnd promote the
regular und profitable, conduct of all our in
dtistriiil enterprise. Ho cannot prosper when
tlio country is in distress, when it Industrie
uro prostrated, it commerce paralyzed, it
credit broken down or it social order di
turbed, nor can l: prostK-r when the fluotua
tion of the currency uro such that he cannot
certainly know tho valuo of the dollar In
which his aces uro paid or estimate in ud
vunco tho cost of the necessaries of life.
Whether Ve shall or shall not huve a long
period of h'uincial, commercial and industrial
disturbance in tliis country, and whether la
bor shall bo deprived of permanent employ
ment or bo partially employed anil inade
quately paid, are quest ions directly and neces-
surily Involved in the demand now seriously
mane by many of our fellow citizen that the
I'nited states, without the co-operation of any
other government In the world, und In oppo
sition to tho established jsjlicy of every
other grnt civilized nnd commercial nation,
shall authorize the free ami unlimited coinage
of full legal tender silver at tho rate of 10 to 1,
rot withstanding thu true market ratio be
tween the two metal Is about Ul to 1, or, in
other words, that tho United States alono shall
declure by law that 1H ounce of silver are
equal in value to 1 ounce of gold, when it U
an Indisputublo fact everywhere recognized
that in all thu market of thu world, in silver
standard countries n well us In gold standard
countries, PI ounce of silver aro worth only
about one half as much as 1 ounce of gold
and will purchase only about one-half a much
of tho necessaries of life.

Double Standard a Failure.
The attempt to maintain what i culled th
double standard of value that Is, to at temp
to keep the legal tender coin of the two tuc
als, gold und silver, in use a money at the
same time, upon a ratio of value fixed by law
has repeatedly been made by king and pur
UamenU in every civilized country in the
world, and it ha failed again and again In
very one of them, und it require no gift of
prophecy to foresee that It must continue to
fail so long a self interest constitute a con
trolling factor in the business affairs of men
Without trespassing upon your patience to
reviow the monetary history of other coun
tries in which this exierluu lit ha been made
and fulled it may be advuutugcou to refi
briefly to our own experience upon this sub
ject. When It wa determined to adopt
monetary system for the United btutes and
establish a mint, Alexander Hamilton and
Thomas Jefferson, two men who differed
widely upon almost every public question and
whose names a founoers und leader of thel
respective parties will live u long ns our po
litical literature 1 read, hgr.td that in deter
mining what should be the coinage or legal ra
tlo between gold and silver the truu relutiv
commercial value of the two metal in tho
market of thu world must first be uscertalned
and that this relative value, when ascertain)
should be Incorporated into thu statute a the
basis of the proposed system of coinage. Al
though they were party louder, they wero
statesmen and patriots, and when they wer
culled on to consider this greut business tiues
tion affecting all the privato affairs of their
fellow citizens they gavo it a thorough ant!
impartiul Investigation uisin It merits, with'
out regard to the effect their decision migh
have upon their own jxditleal fortune or
upon the politicul fortune of their follower.
The "Father" Not Dlst orbed by Thi Do.
These grout men were never disturbed for
moment by the delusion Unit congress coul
lix by stat uto thu actual or relative value of
gold and silver any more than it could fix by
ktatuto thu uctual or relative values of a pound
of lead and a pound of iron. They knew that
gold and silver, like ull other exchangeable
things, aro commodities und that their vulue
will be fixed in thu market of thu world
They knew that it wu entirely eoinis-tent, i
fact necessary, for congress to declare the ra
tlo usn which the two metul should be coim
nt the mint, if they wire to be coined ut ull,
but tin y knew equally well that if the rutio so
declared did not corresjsiiid substantially with
the ratio which tho commercial world had es
tublisbod, the coin of the two metals could
not be kept in use us mono at the sumo time,
and consequently, as I have ul ready said, they
determined to ascertain the commercial ratio
and to adopt it. They reached tho conclusion
that the true commercial rutio ut that time
was 15 to 1 that is, that 15 ounce of silv.-
were equal in valuo to 1 ounce of gold und
accordingly the act of 1TU2, which wu oar firs
coinage law, authorized thu coiuugu of thu two
metal at that ratio.
At the rutio thus established tho silver dol
lar contained UTl' grain of flno silver und
the gold contained 'H grains of flue gold, but
It was soon discovered thut u mistake had boon
made and thut iJ71 grain of fine silver won
not In fuct equal iu valuo to 'J4;'4 grains of fine
gold, und the consequence Was that, although
the difference between tho vulue of a silver
dollar and the Valuo of a gold dollar was only
about one cent and one-eighth of a cent, silver
drove gold out of use und out of the country,
auu rrom llial time we had silver monomctal
lisin until after the passage of thu acts f l&u
The fact thnt the silver wa put Into the
form of a coin und made legal tender the same
a gold, and that both dollar were declared
to bo worth 1U0 cent euch, did not lncreuse
tne value or the U, 1'4 grains of silver to any
extent wnatever. llio people could not be de
ceiveu by more word printed in u stattit
they aoon learned that the metal contain!
in the silver dollar was not equal iu value
to the metal continued in the irold dollar
and they paid silver to their creditor am
hoarded the gold or sent it out of the cou
try. Even our new und full wekht silv
coins would not circulate or remain in tin
country, bocuuso congress, by various acts
made certain foreign coin legal tender in the
payment of debts, nnd us they were li nerallv
bo worn by abrasion ns to bu of less weight
