The "Boy Orator of the Platitudes"
is not holding out well physically in
lis trip to New York where he will be
told of his nomination. His speeches
from the train could only out of kind
ness be called speeches, for they were
the mildest kind of little thank-yous,
and contained absolutely no thoughts
or new ideas. Where the boy will be
physically before he is aware of his
nomination, it is hard to conjecture,
and pity should be extended to him.
Dowx in Illinois, near St. Louis, a
Jew days ago a cyclist named Anderson,
succeded in lowering the bicycle record
to an amazing degree. He did it under
the most favorable circumstances, how
ever, as he used a locomotive to break
the resistance of the wind, and possibly
to draw him along behind it. On a
level and straight piece of road, a track
of Dlanks, end to end, was lajd, and
over this the young man behind the
engine made his way. The engine
speeded up to a mile a minute and
faster, and the cyclist kept himself very
close to it, so close in fact that once he
had to "back-pedal." The time made
by him was one minute and three sec
onds. It is thought that he can beat
that time'by several seconds, and doubt
less he can. His exhibition was a truly
wonderful one.

quantities, of silver produced of late
years and the improved and cheapened
process of mining it and extracting the
pure metal from the ore have so reduced
its value that it now requires 32 ounces
of silver to buy an. ounce of gold. If
Gen. Jackson were alive, he would not

Eloquent Champion or Republicanism
on the Oocaulon of His Itenomlnntton
For Congress at Alfred, Ale., July 80.
Free Silver Would He a Shitting From
n nigh Standard of Civilization to
That of Mexloo.
The speech delivered by Hon. Thomas
B. Reed at Alfred, Me., on July 29, was,
listened1 to' and applauded' -by a very
largo assemblage. It was in part as fol
lows :
"Two mouths ago no man of standing
would have risked his reputation as a
.prophet by hinting tho slightest doubt
of Republican success. Four years of
actual -trial of the opposition under tho
guidance of its best and twioe-trusted
leader had left no shadow of question
as to public duty. Howover far the Re
publican party might have fallen short
of perfection, nevertheless all men felt
it was tho bost party, just now, to draw
nigh to for whatever is to bo left to us
of sound government, commercial suc
cess and business prosperity.
The democratic Transfiguration.
"Two months have slipped away
hardly time to ripen a strawberry, much
less a system of finance and there are
those who tell us that all things h.ivo
changed, that these very men who were
being arrayed for decent "'burial had
burst the cerements of tho grave and,
transfigured bv some new arrangement
of crowns of thorns and crosses of gold,
were to lead us to a new happiness; and
even repair all the damage they them
selves had wrought. Now this may be
so, but to me it does not seem probable.
Welcome to Democratic Patriots.
"It would bo unwiso to confound tho
Democratic organization with individual
Democrats. When the war of the re
bellion burst forth, tens of thousands of
Democrats, politicians, strong party
men, sprang to their feet, representing
hundreds of thousands, aye, millions,
and henceforth and always were part
and parcel of tho bono and sinew of the
victorious republic. What matter if the
party had gone wrong? They were
"There are some political orators who
think if they can draw a rose-colored
picture it ought to convert a continent.
What a rosy picture wo hud painted for
us in 1802 ! What millions we were to
expect ! We wcro to sell in the dearest
and buy in tho cheapest market. Wo
were to have both ends of the bargain.
Wo took their word for it and here wo
are. And now tho least crediblo por
tion of these samo gentlemen are smear
ing the canvas of another picture for
which they want us to pay another four
years, or perhaps ten of this nation's
life. Men deceived onco are human ;
men deceived twice by the samo men
are fools.
"The evil which has como by an un
wise revision of tho tariff has been
greatly aggravated by one of its conse
quencesour loss of revenue. Had
there been no deficit, then a hundred
millions of borrowed gold would have
carried us through tho crisis safe nnd
sound. As it was, the constant drain
of tho deficit, continually confounded
with the redemption of gold, has so
afflicted tho imagination of our people
that confidence can not commence to be
restored until our revenues equal our
"What is proposed by those gentle
men who proclaim, as they did four
years ago, that they alone hold prosper
ity in their grasp?
The Remedy of 10 to 1.
"Their remedy is the coinage ol silver
10 to 1. Heretofore, whenever gold and
silver have stood together, it has been
at the market value. When we tried to
make gold and silver circulatd together
we have always married them according
to their market value. Today wo find
them, not 16 to I, but 81 to 1, and wo a.re
going, they say, to lift Bilver to twico its
value, not by tho universal sense of
mankind, which ulone makes values,
but by the statute of tho United States,
singlg-handed, against the civilized
"Why should the United States try to
do this alone? International bimetal
lism I can understand, but this driving
out of gold and substitution of silver is
only silver monometallism for the United
States. It is not bimetallism for Hie
world and a stable currency, but the
shifting from gold currency and civil
ized Europe and going over to silver and
Mexico. Japan, India and China. Oh,
but China and Japan, India aud Mex
ico aro prosperous just now ! Yes, but
what kind of prosperity? Tho prosper
ity of cheap labor growing cheaper every
day. Manufacturers there may be pros-
Eerous, and traders may be prosperous,
ut tho people aro not prosperous at all.
In silver countries labor is cheap and
kept cheap by the silver dollar. For my
part I do not want that kind of pros
perity. I want a prosperity which by
good wages to all is shared by all.
More Capital What We Need.
"What we want is not more money,
but more capital. Money always comes
with capital. We have money now,
more than we can use, lying idle. Wo
have just exported a lot of it. Money is
the transferer of capital, as a hayrack is
a transferer of hay. More hayracks
will never make more hay, but more
hay will require moro hayracks, and is
sure to get tnem.
"Our capital is great, but tho United
States is very much greater. Thero aro
millions of 6quare miles and 75,000,000
ol people, and undeveloped riches with
out stint. But there is not capital
enough to keep 75,000,000 people at
work. Wo are most prosperous when
the 75,000,000 are all at work, and when
that happens wo borrow of tho rest of
tho world thousands of millions of dol
lars. "In 1800 we were prosperous. Our
people wero all at work. Consequently
thero wero good wages and wealth
greatly increased. The figures show
that in that year wo had $100,000,000 of
gold moro than we had in 1882 every
Bit of that had been imported or kept,
the product of our own mines. It was
busy transferring this vast capital wo
had borrowed and (hat which we owned
"As soon as this election is over and
the future position of the United States
is assured, both as to money and to the
employment of our people, capital is
ready to come to us from abroad and
from our own people, and we shall again
be prosperous.
Ilave Been Through It Before.
"We have been through all this be
foro. The greenbackers of 1H78 were
not bad men. They were sincere, and
had a better case than the silver men of
today. In fact, it was much the same
case. We must have artificial inflation
and cheaper money, they said, or black
est ruin awaits us. It was a hard time.
"Prices were low and work was
scarce ; taxes were high nnd debts hard
to pay, but we persevered and resumed
specio payments.
"From that moment tho capital of tho
world was 'at our disposal. -We had a
good tariff, which made' us do all our
own work, and from 1870 lo 1808, 14
years of nrosnerity. which placed tho
United States in a great position1 in the
world. "s '
"If wo do the like thing ,today, like
things follow. With revenues equal
to oar emergencies, undue export of i
gold will cease. With the certainty that I
the dollar paid will bo equal to tho dol- ,
lar lent, will como credit and confidence.
With that other certainty that wo are
to do all our own work will come the
earning of wages steadily increasing, I
which is the basis of that prosperity (
which is alone worthy of this great na-.
tion, the prosperity of the whole people. "
As to tho Lttiil Tender Functions of Coin '
aud l'npor Money.
Gold coin is a legal tender in all pay-'
inents, without any limit us to amount. '
Tho silver dollar of the acts of 1792,
18'J7 and 1878 is a full legal tender to any
amount. The trade dollar was a legal
tender to tne amout of 5, but has no
legal tender qualifications now. j
All fractional silver coin now minted
is a legal tender to tho amount of 10. i
Minor coin is a legal tender to the I
amount of 25 cents.
United States notes ("greenbacks")
aro a legal tender in payment of all '
debts, public and private, except for
duties on imports and interest on tho
public debt. ' ;
Gold certificates aro not a legal ten
der, but may be issued in payment of
interest on the public debt, and aro re
ceivable in payment for customs, taxes,
and all public dues. ,
Silver certificates aro not a legal ten
der, but are receivable for customs, '
taxes and all public dues.
Currency certificates aro not a legal
tender for any purposo, but may be
counted as part of tho lawful reserve of
banks, and may bo accepted in tho set
tlement of clearing house balances.
United States treasury notes of 1800
are a legal tender in payment of all
debts, public and private, and are re
ceivable for customs, taxes and all
public debts. They may bp counted as a
part of tho lawful reserves of tho banks,
and aro redeemable in gold or silver
coin'in tho discretion of the secretary
of tho treasury.
National bank notes are not a legal
tender except that they aro receivable
for all dues to tho United States, except
' duties on imports, and for all debts and
ueiaauuB owing uy uiu u nuea stales,
except interest on the public debt and
in redemption of the national currency.

Thou Shalt Not Steal.
Mr. William Jennings Bryan is the
Demo-Pop nominee for president by
virtue of a belief that ho is an orator,
and especimiy by virtue of a belief that
he made o-iginal and exclusivo protest
against crowning a supposititious man
with thorns and crucifying him upon a
cross of geld.
Were thr belief well grounded it
ought not to work very greatly to the
credit of JMr. Bryan, for the passage is
at best a parody of sacred history and a
somewhat irreverent and very melo
dramatic travesty, by which the story
of the profoundest of all spiritual ago
nies is travestied to win applause of a
political audience. Even were tho
"cross of gold" apostrophe a travesty
conceived by Mr. Bryan it would not
stand tho wear of a campaign, for it is
not oratorical j it merely is sophomori
cal. But Mr. Bryan is not entitled to the
pinchbeck crown of tinseled rhetoric.
A contemporary finds that Jan. 26, 1804,
Mr. McCall -jf Massachusetts spoke thus
in congress :'
"Do you regard your bill with refer
ence to labor? Ready as you have ever
been to betray it with a kiss, you
scourge it to the very quick and press a
crown of thorns upon its brow. Yon
shall not crucify mankind on a cross of
This was in an argument against the
Wilson bill. Mr. Bryan heard the
speech and evidently afterward com
mitted it to memory. On July 9, before
tho convention of Demo-Pops in Chica
go, Mr. Bryan said :
"Having behind us tho commercial
interests and the laboring interests and
all tho toiling masses, we shall answer
their demands for a gold standard by
saying to them : You shall not press
down upon tho brow of labor this crowu
of thorns. Yon shall not crucify man
kind upon a cross of gold."
This, as Constablo Dogberry said, is
"flat burglary. ' ' Such honor as accrues
from tho "cross of gold" belongs to that
stanch Republican, Samuel Walker Mc
Call of Massachusetts, not to that man
of uncertain politics, part Democrat,
part Populist, part socialist, William
Jennings Bryan of Nebraska. Chicago

Want Sonnd Credit Also.
Tho July treasury statement, showing
an increasing deficit, emphasizes tho
necessity for a speedy revision of our
revenuo laws. This government can
not continue to run in debt at tho rato
of over 100,000,000 a year. No money
standard can long maintain the credit
of a nation having such resources as
we possess and yet unable so to legislate
as to make its receipts equal its ex
penses. Something must be done, and
that quickly, to stem this debt-creating
current. The election of William Mo
Kinley in November will not accom
plish it unless a majority is also elected
to congress pledged to carry out the
policies for which MoKinley stands.
This nation must have sound credit as
well as sound money. New Ycik Mail
