WORDS AGAINST SILVER.
A Z'.h.o Mar.ncer Set Forth tlio Folly of
Henry Kuippoberg, manager of the
Hecla Consolidated Mining and Smelt
ing company, Glondale, lion., has writ
ten tho following letter to a friond :
Gi.cndai.e, Mod , Auk. 11.
Mt Dkaii rniEND Your esteemed favor of
the 9th at hand, and contents noted. I am
ever ready to give a reason for the faith', and
hope that is within me, whether on politics,
tellglon or morals ,
Tho proposition of free and independent, un
limited coinage at the ratio of 10 to 1, when the
commercial value is 3J to 1, is dishonest, and
must result in ruin. To soy or claim that by
legislative action you can create values is an
assertion that history, experience and com
mon sense contradict. If the assertion be
true, then the law of supply and demand is a
fraud, and our poor world has been for 0,000
years doing business on a false basis.
If this assertion be true, then wo have at last
found the key that unlocks the door, and
henceforth by order of congress, signed by the
president of the United btates, water shall
run uphill; the law of gravitation shall for
ever be suspouded; sowing and reaping is a
lie; every man shill reap without sowln;
idlene.-s and debauchery shall bring plenty
and happiness ; repudiation is honorable and
integrity is a fraud.
This wholo in to 1 qupstlon is based upon as
sumption. I do not know of a single nation
on earth that claimed we, as a nation, by our
action could or can make the ci mmercial value
of silver up to $1.23 pHr ounce. Tnit assump
tion Is pitentod by tho Silver party of the
United States. Hemiv Kkippebeho.
ltlshop Kewtnnn'H lteply to tx Populist.
George P. Washburn, Boston, Extern lltmber
of theNttional ExtcutUo Committee of the
Deak Sm If yon will turn to tho
Now York Suu of July 28 you will read
To tho New York Sun :
I did cot denounce tho Populists as anarch
ists. John P. Jmewman.
Ahiuxiiy Park, K J , July 27.
Had you fult safe to read that patri
otic journal, which prefers national
honor and commercial honesty to ndhii
rcuco to party, th6 necessity for your
challenge would have been obviated,
and is obviated by this denial.
But whether Populists are good
American citizens or not is a question
too large for you and mp to settlo by
controversy. The American people will
decide that next November, when, by a
magnificent majority, they will elect
two men who stand four-squaro on a
hundred cents in mi honest dollar. I
should feel badly to havo Brother Wash
burn forsako his church, but ho had bet
ter do that than pay his pastor 03 cents
on a dollar.
I never pieched.polUics, but patriot
ism and ltuaucial honesty is a cardinal
virtuo ot a patriot. I havo a great re
spect for tho native-born American, bnt
a good many iiatlvo-born American citi
zens fought for tho Confederacy, and
for the degradation of labor. I am gltd
in the belief that our noblo American
'armers are keen enough to escape this
Bilver mania, and who, in tho clear,
Lra'c-jng winds of the coming November,
will vote for that true American of
Ohio, and for that other true American
of Now Jfireoy, who will redeem onr
country's power and glory.

Daniel Webster on Moucy and Wapt.
"The very man, of all others, who
has tho deepest interest in a sound cur
rency, and who suffers most by mis
chievous legislation in monoy matters,
ia the man who earns his daily bread by
his daily toil. His property is
in his hands. His reliance, his fund,
his productive froehold, his all, is his
labor. Whether he work on his own
small capital or another's, his living is
still earned by his industry, and when
tho monoy of tho country becomes de
preciated and debased, whether it be
adulterated coin or paper without credit,
that industry is robbed of its reward.
Ho then labors for n country whoso laws
cheat him out of his bread. I would
say to every owner of every quarter sec
tion of land in tho west, I would say to
every man in tho east, who follows his
own plow, -nd to overy mechanic, ar
tisan and lfvborcr of overy city in tho
country I would say to overy man,
everywhere, who wishes by honest
means to gain an honest living, 'be

popular cry, to shako the stability of tho
public currency, stabs your

THE MELTING-POT TEST.
If a dollar be n dollar
Honest co'n without deceit
One may melt it,
One ma" smelt it,
But its value u on't retreat. ..
Melt ton dollars
In unbli-sed melting-pot,
And the silver lug remaining
Only sells for live "tho lot."
Melt gold dollars
Melt an agle
In aforesaid melting-pot,
And the golden chunk remaining
Quickly hells Tor too "the lot."
Tell me, will you, kindly tell mo
How tli (u dollars equal are?
If tho Hle glowing furnace
Only one puts under part
There was never yet equation
That demanded legislation
To establish right to be;
An equa.lon is equation,
Else it 1- a fallacy,
And I'm thinking, quietly thinking,
That a j-oor man has poor sense
If he'll voto to havo a dollar
That wll melt to fifty cents.
