A Fable from Kansas That Shows Where
Silver Will Land Uncle Sam.
Watson & Gibson of New York are
Ecnding out the following fable in their
latest market letter. It's a hard nut
Jor free silverites to crack. Tho letter
"One of the most distinguished bank
ers in this city sends us with the stamp
of his approval a very amusing and in
structive leaflet It is a fable entitled
the 'Wise Men of Kansa3,' and the
scene is laid in the future. We cannot
do better than to quote from it and
thus give it additional circulation as a
specimen of the clever literature which
-will be used by the Republicans in this
"Then the governor assembled the
wise men in special session and thus
" 'Most noble, brave and mighty yeo
men, our people groan. The burden is
heavy upon them. Early and late they
toil and eat the bread of disappoint
ment and bitterness Make ye laws
Jor their deliverance.'
" 'We are the greatest state in the
union, We are big enough and rich
enough to have a policy of our own re
gardless of what other states may do
or may not do. Let us be patriotic. A
Kansas policy for Kansas is the need of
the hour. Wheat is hard to raise and
the yield is light and uncertain ; but
we are great on corn. The notion that
the price must be the law of supply and
demand is a superstition by means of
which tho rich plunder and oppress
lioncst toil. Make ye therefore a law
in accordance with which sovereign
and august Statute corn shall bo put
-upon a par with wheat. They shall be
interchangeable bushel for bushel, and
the price of corn shall bo tho same as
the price of wheat Do this, and tho
people of Kansas shall rise up and call
you blessed, and all the world except
money lenders shall hail you as the
emancipators of mankind.'
"The wise men passed tho law as the
governor had advised and all tho people
of the state rejoiced, for their cribs
were full of corn. They could hardly
contain themselves till the governor
bad signed the bill which raised tho
price of Kansas corn from 15 cents to
45 cents a bushel. All the people
now felt rich. They bought many
luxuries and most of them went into
debt Thoy wondered that they had
never before found out that wealth was
.imply a matter of legislation, and they
felt a great pity and coutempt for the
ignorant and superstitious people of
the other states. Then the farmers
from tho other states began hauling
their corn to Kansas. Long; lines of
wagons came winding along every
road. Iloats floated it down the rivers
and railroads rushed it in from every
section of tho country. It seemed as if
the county was all corn and it was all
headed for Kansas. Tho people of
Kansas took their medicine, that is,
they took tho corn and gayo up their
"The farmerb of tho other states
thought the Kansas people queer, but
they kept bringing them their corn.
Corn carao in nnd wheat wont out
And besides all tho Kansas people had
gone to raising corn because it was
moro easily producd than wheat and
was to bring just as much "in tho mar
Jjot as wheat, for the wise men had de
creed tbut It should. It wat nut long
until Kansas had all of Its own and
nearly all of its neighbors' corn.
fWhen the other states saw this vast
accumulation and knew that it must
sooner or later come on to the market,
the price of corn began to decline till
it could bo purchased anywhere, except
in Kansas, for 10 cents n bushel. In
Kansas tho price was still 45 cents,
which was ths price of wheat, but
thnrn werA.no buvers. Neither would
anyone exchange wheat for their corn.-
When tho autumn came the Kansas
people did not have any wheat for seed.
Then they sent to the neighboring
states and implored the farmers to ex
change wheat at a parity with corn.
But the farmers said : 'We will ex
change one bushel of wheat for four
nnd one-half bushels of corn.' 'Our
law,' replied tho Kansas people 'puts
porn and wheaton' a, parity, t inoy are
nnunl. for our wise men said they
should be.' .And .the, farmers replied :
'Your wlse'men are asses; let tlierd eat
woitp I'm-n.' So the Kansans wentiback
home, and all their people were in de
"The more corn they had the less It
was worth, and they had nothing but
corn. Day by day the times grew
"Then the governor again acsembled
the wise men and said to them. 'Most
consummate, picturesque and glitter
ing goll-darned fools. There is but
one bigger fool than yourselves. It is
he who now addresses you.'
" 'We thought we could bluff the
everlasting low of supply and demand
with our statute. We thought we
could legislate value into a thing and
mnUn nnr neonle rich bv a law. We
thought we were patriotic. We were
idiotic Let us honestly acknowledge
our assinlnity, repeal our fool law, gat
back into line with the other states,
and imagine no more that we are wiser
than the world.' "

The Grand Army or Creditors.
The gentlemen who think that they
have made an attractive bid for votes
by proposing a 50-cent dollar for debtors
to pay their debts witih aro reckoning
without their host. Every state of tho,
union is full of creditors, nnd they will
never consent to defraud and cheat
Among these creditors are:
All persons who work for wages, sal
ary or by tho piece.
All rnembers of building and loa,n
All depositors in savings, national,
state or private bankrf.
' All holders of life, fire and accident
All members of benevolent and fra
ternal insurance orders.
All holders of industrial insurance.
All widows, orphaiiH or wards de-.
pendent wholly or partially upon tho
incomo from investments.
All educational and charitable insti
tution's dependent wholly or in part
upon the incomo ot their. endowments.
In fact the 50-cent Bflver dollar
wordd bcof advantage, to few persouH
in the long run save tho speculators,
who would gamble on the inevitable
fluctuations in its purchasing power
nnd in the price of commodities.
Your Boy Wont Llvo a Month.

him to health and enabled him to go

An Interesting: Letter on the
Great Money Question.
DBAB MONBJ AND CHEAP MONET.
A Fall EipUnstlna of Matter Plainly
and Simply Expressed In Silver Conn
trlM Money I Dear) In Gold Coontrle
It Is Cheap, as Loan.
Gordon & York, a Cloveland firm,
have been sending to their correspond
ents a very interesting letter, written
by Mr. Qeorge D. Boulton of Chicago
to Mr. O. Morgan, postmaster of Bar
rie, N. D. Thb letter has appeared
in several Chicago papers and is as
follows : i
"CmoAao! July 16, 1890.
"Charles Morgan, Barrio, N. D. ;
"My DuAr MonaAN Your "brother
Lshowed me a letter a fow ,daysago in
wuiuu jruu ua&uu 1U4 buuiu icouiuK mat
ter on tho gold question. As I feel
strongly on the subject, I may as well
give you the benefit of my crude ideas,
not having any printed matter at hand.
"There uro n good many leading
points on this question which I think
can be briefly expressed and which ap
peal strongly to my Bid o of the argu
ment. "One of the most urgent motives of
the silver party is that they want cheap
money. By that I suppose they mean
money they can borrow cheaply or earn
cheaply. Now, the cheapest money in
the world is in the strongest gold coun
try viz., England. The dearest money
in the world is in the silver countries.
For example, money in London today is
2 per cent per anuum, while money in
Mexico. China, Spain, India, and in fact
in all silver countries of tho world, com
mands a loaning value of from 12 per
cent upward. In the other gold conn
trios of Europe, while money is not so
low as in England, the rate varies from
3 to 6 per cent to the borrower:
"I may cite aB u good example of the
two currencies two states adjoining one
another in South America one British
Guiana, a gold country, with money at
4 to 0 per cent per annum ; the other
Venezuela, with like soil and climatic
conditions, a silver country, where in
terest rules at 10 to 12 per cent annum.
"Should we depart from a gold basis
Europe would undoubtedly send in all
the currency sccurieties that is, secur
ities that may be paid in anything but
gold to us, requiring an export of
either gold or its equivalent in trade.
If it takes gold it takes that much of
our money circulation. If it takes mer
chandise, it takes that at a largely re
duced value. Tho cousequenco would
be that shrinkage in money circulation
would run into very lare figures, while
we could not put out silver or certifi
cates sufficient to take their place for
many months or years, so that during
tho next three or four years, instead of
tho circulation increasing as silverites
hope, it would materially decrease.
After a lapse of time, no doubt, by put
ting their printing presses and mints to
work, they could largely inflate our
currency with new issues.
"Currency dppletiou means low prices
for labor and everything elsd. Cur
rency at a fair rate per capita means,
prosperity. Currency inflation means
"Going back into history wo find Eu
rope using largely silver and gold to
gether. With tho expansion of trade
one country after another found by sad
experience their inability to keep tho
two values on a parity. England was
the first to depart from this custom,
then Germany, then Franco, Holland,
Belgium, Italy, Austria and, last of all,
Chilo. It was from no prejudico o
their part, but from the requirements of
trade, that this courso was taken.
"Wo can only have ono standard, be
it of gold, salver or anything else, and
the experience of tho world has been1
tliat gold was tho best. Again, where
the country is most sound on its cur
rency question you will find the highest
civilization. Where money is' debased,
or is other than tho recognized standard
of tho world, civilization is on a much
lower piano. We can find at tho present
timo no silver country in tho world, I
think I might say without exception,
that is in a prosperous condition, whoso
government securities command re
spect and full prises in the markets of
A Mexican Kxauiple.
"To this statement our friends from
tho west will probably take excoption,
aud cite as an example of a silver coun
try being prosperous aud in good con
dition tho case of Mexico; but they
will find it difficult to support their as
sertions. The writer haj occasion Jflst
mouth to buy in tlietcity of Mexico $30,
000 of bonds issued by tho Mexican
Rovcruniciint. Thcso bonds were
bought at tiio rnjto of 4K cents on tho
dollar in silver, tho net cost to tho pur
chaser being $'M, 170 in Mexican silver.
As tho money to pay for theso bonds
camo from this country, tho amount of
American funds used in tho purchase
of 550,000 Mexican govcrument securi
ties was $18,012.11, or about 20 cents on
the dollar. Now it seems impossible for
any country to bo in a sound and
prosperous condition whose securities
aro fco heavily discounted as in tho abovo
"Looking at tho matter from an in
tellectual standpoint, wo find arrayed
on tho gold bido tho high intolligciico of
England, France. Germany, Italy, Hol
land, Belgium, Norway. Sweden and
Canada. Qu the other side wc find nu
interior grade ot intelligence, an ab
sence of publio schools, aud a lower
piano of morality, as iu Spain, Portu
gal, South American States, Moxico,
China, etc. On which bido shall wo
"Of courso you understand it is not
tho intension of tho party in power, or
tho gold party to, disturb tho present
silver circulation of tho country, which
in now 500,000,000. Thero is no desire
to uembnetizo that.
"Onthoothor hand, tho wholo con
tention is that all of our circulation
shall be kept on a parity with tho gold
standard, and this $500,000, instoad of
being reduced iu value, will remain
equal to gold anywhere
l'ajr Moro For J.oam.
"Borrowers throughout tho country
will have to recognize tho fact that nu.
doubtedly they will havo to pay mofo
for loans with silver ruling than thoy
now do with gold.
"If wo can avoid a serious panic dur
ing such crisis wo' may regard jw

"Under the most favorable circum
stances we must look for great distur

hen it comes, must bo at least from
nine months to a year off, and at the
best it can not do anything which will
speedily restore onr circulation to its
normal amount .per capita, as it takes
time to coin silver, tho capacity of

WHEN SOVEREIGNS CONFER.
Great Ado Made on the Occadona of
Royal Meetings In Europe.
The innumerable banquets which ore
offered to the royal persons on every oc
casion are exact emblems of tho many
valuable and pleasant days which are,
ot their instigation and by their com
mand, wasted in senseless formula, says
Ouida in the Forum. Onoe, when cos
tume was beautiful, pageantry was bo
also, nnd ceremonial was so also; but
now both aro unsightly and grotesque.
Two bearded men in hemlets, or caps,
kiss each other on a railway footboard;
old ladiea in waterproof cloaks toddle
through two lines of policemen; a fat
gentleman, with a round hat, with a
cigar in his mouth, walks over n piece
of red carpet, nodding to a bending hu
man hwlge of supple spines; faces beam
inanely, throngs outside tho station
door cheer, they know not why, troops
ore massed in readiness, for nowhere
are these personages safe from at
tempts upon their lives; the whole
thing is unlovely, absurd, anomalous, a
caricature of what was once both in
telligible and respectable, but in which
there is no longer either prestige or
symbolism. Without dignity in its ob
ject loyalty is a mere boneless bundle of
vi ornout robes, and dignity "perishes nt
the scream of the railway whistle.
The platform adopeted by the silverite
wing which controlled the democratic
national comention contains abundant
material for stirring oampalgn mottoes.
"Free Silver Inflation," "Debt repudia
tion," "Property Confiscation" and
"Commercial Stagnation" ure brief and
truthful statements of the aims of tho
cheap money dcmocinte and the certain
results which would follow their suc
cess in November. Shouting these
cheerful strains, the silverites can march
to the certain defeat which awaits all
movements based on seetionallpm,
greed, appeals to prejudice and hatred
of property rights.
