FACTS TO BE BEMEJHBERED.
By referring: to the Congres
sional Record -of the 28th of Jan
uary, 1878, we find a resolution
passed the House of Representa
tives by a vote o189 to 79, de
olaring that the bonds of the
United States were payable in
silver or gold, ,t the option of
the Government. .The concur
rent resolution further declared
that their payment, principle and
interest in silver would not be in
violation of the;public faith, nor
in derogation of ihe rights of the

the recorder, has no such juris
justify the accusation that those
who arein favor of paying the
bonds in silver or gdld at the op--
tion of Ihe Government are repu
diators. Inl8Q9alaw was -passed that
the currency bonds should be
paid in coin, thereby virtually
adding six hundred ;millions to
the public debt. This was de

"We stand by the concurrent
resolution of 1878, for which our
President voted. His present
position is in derogation of -the
rights of debtors.
Debtors have rights as well as
creditors,, and the Nation's honor
will be fully vindicated when it
requires debtors to pay their Ob
ligations in the money of the con
stitution. It is disgraceful and
dishonorable to wholly ignore
and disregard the rights of the.
debtor class. The charge that
the advocates of silver favor re
pudiation is a. willful and ma
licious lie which should choke
the villain to death that utters it.

amounting to 3125,000. The

The elder Amon Barnes, it is
claimed, had contracted to fur

Before he had delivered the cattle
