Cheap Money Insnres Cheap Labor.
It has been proved scores of times in
different countries that cheapening the
money by lowering the standard in
creases the cost of living at leait three
or four times as fast as it increases the
wages of working people. Tho most
pitiful thing about this cheap-money
craze at tho present time is justnthis
feature of it. Whatever Bryan, Wil
liams and the rest of them may tell 'the
worlringman-io the .contrary, one of tho
chief reasoas why tae newspapers and
the best clis8 of public men earnestly
oppose the frco coinage scheme is that
they dread mqro than words can toll to
see the destitution and wretchedness
that wonld be euro to come upon that
great class of the commnnity least able
to look out for itself in panio times in
cose tho monetary standard of all the
great industrial and commercial nations
of the world were to bo exchanged for
that of Mexico, Central America, China
and India. Boston Advertiser (Rop,).

Tho Value of the Dollar.
The metal in a gold dollar is worth a
hundred cents. Hammer it out of
shape, or melt it and run it into any
other form, and you can a get a
hundred cents for it just as easily as
before. But the metal in a 10 to 1 sil
ver dollar is worm only uity-mree
cents. Hammer or melt it into any
other shape, and you will be able to
get fifty-three cents for it and no more.
Why? Because tho coin contains only
412J4 grains of standard silver, and
412)4 grains of standard silver are
worth, at current market rates, only
about flfty-hreo cents.
"Yes," says the freo silver man,
"but that is all because of the 'crime of
l$7o If the Government should re
monetize silver andcoinr on equal
termswithgo1i,ilheri,412&. grains of it'
Is that sof friend Populist? Theu 'if
the Government should monetize iron,
and coin it on the same terms, would
412i grains of iron bo worth one hund
red cents? If so, tho Government
ought to be able to pay off the whole
debt tomorrow; and every man who
owns an old stove or some worn out
hoes or shovels may set up as a million
aire. If not, why not? If free coinage
.would double the value of one metal,
why not of another?
"Because," replies the follower of
Mr. Bryan, , "iron is not a 'precious
metal,' and silver is. Silver has from
time immemorial been recognized as a
money metal. The rule applies only to
the 'precious metals,' silver and gold.
No others are used as money."
There you run counter to the facts of
history. Many other metals, and other
materials than metal, have been and
still are used as money and as cur
rency, bparta used iron, Syracuse and
Britain used tin, Russia platinum, Bur
mah lead, Carthage leather, China silk,
Abyssinia salt, Tartary tea, Campeachy
logwood, Mexico salt, the African
coast cowrie shells; and many nations
of high civilization have thus used cat
tle, as the words "pecuniary," "fee,"
"rupee," and "shekel" testify. Why
demand the remonetization of silver
any more than of iron, or sheep, or
oxen? And if monetization has such
an effect upon one thing, why not up
"Well," he persists, "the actual yalue
of the metal in the coin doesn't matter,
anyway. There isn't a cent's worth of
copper in a cen, and there isn't a
cent's worth of paper in a hundred
dollar bill. Yet they pass as full legal
tender. So would the silver dollar,
even if it did contain only about fifty
three cents worth of metal."
On the contrary, it does matter, if
the coin be standard money, and not
redeemable in anything else. The
copper cent is mere "token money."
It is not full legal tender and does not
enjoy free coinage. You cannot make
a man accept one hundred copper cents
as payment of one dollar. You cannot
take 48 grains of copper the amount
in a cent to the mint and get a cent
for it The paper in a bill is worth
nothing. The bill derives its value
solely from the fact that the Govern
ment is willing and able and, indeed,
bound to redeem it in gold on demand.
You cannot take a bit of white paper
seyen inches long and three wide, to
the Treasury and get a dollar for it, or
have it stamped "one dollar" by the
Government. When the Government
wants to make copper coins it buys
copper at the market price. When it
wants to make paper money it buys
paper at the market price. So, when
it wants to make silver coins it buys
silver at the market price. And you
have no more business to demand that
your bit of silver, of 412 grains,
worth fifty-three cents, be stamped
"one dollar" than that your slip of
white paper be thus stamped.
Now do you intend that your 10 to 1
silver dollar shall be redeemable in
gold, as paper money is, or irredeem
able, standard money? If the former.
you are asking that tho Government
shall pay one hundred cents in gold
for every fifty-three cents' worth of
silver offered to it. Such an undertak
ing would drive the richest nation in
the world to bankruptcy. If you don't
believe it, try the experiment yourself,
by paying one hundred cents for every
fifty-three cents' worth of produce
of any kind your neighbors may offer
you. But if the latter, if the silver dol
lar is to be irredeemable, standard
money, then you are demanding that
there shall be two kinds of money in
circulationgold, of which a dollar is
worth odo hundred cents, and silver, of
which a dollar is worth about fifty
three cents today, and may be worth
more or less tomorrow. That is the
way it is in Russia, where the gold
ruble is worthy 'about seventy-seven
cents and the silver rnble thirty-eight
cents!!' That is the wayitlbin Jtfpan,
where the gold yen is worth ninety
nine cents, and silver yen fifty cents.
The result in those countries is that
nothing circulates but the depreciated
silver, according to Gresham's law, and
the people are scarcely removed from
pauperism. Do you think Russia and
Japan and China and India are good
examples for the Uniied States to imi
tate, either in finance or in the gen
eral condition of the people? New

are permitted to make this extract: "I
have no hesitation in recommending
ui. iviug a now discovery, as ine re
sults were almost marvelous in the case
of my wife. While I was pastor of tho
Baptist Church at Rives Junction she
was brought down with Pneumonia
succeeding La Grippe. Terrible parox
ysms of coughing would last for hours
witn nuie interruption and it seemed
us if she could not survivo them. A
friend recommended Dr. King's Now
Discovery; It was quick in its work
and highly satisfactory in results."
