Senator Faulkner attaches no sig
nificance to the Vermont elections, as
cribing1 the result to the mere fact that
the "Democrats didn't do anything."
AVe should say they didn't.
Under the federal law the exacting
of campaign assessments of any sort

The real Democrats, in convention
assembled at Indianapolis yesterday
nominated their standard bearers, in

If the millionaire mine owners of the
United States are so terribly anxious
to have each 51 cents worth of their
product coined into a silver dollar, why
do th'ey not take it to that land of
millc and honey Mexico? They will
stamp it a dollar down there.
Who has not read of the McKinley
spider so much written about these
The Leader saw one yesterday in the
back yard of Mr. J. E. VanDervoort.
The insect was a big black spider on
whose backs were spots of gold, and
he was contentedly sunning himself in
his dainty house. Across the web in
strong relief was woven what could be
read with a little imagination, "Wil
liam McKinley." This is a true story
of a genuine spider, and" it demon
strates that pretty much all nature is
alive with McKinley's name, and keep
ing it to the front.
The contemplated fusion of Demo
crats and Populists was accomplished
at the convention in this city Thurs
day and the voters of the county are
treated to the spectacle of an old time
Populist heading the Democratic
county ticket as well as the national
ticket The Pops were given two
places to pay them for not nominating
a ticket, J. D. Payne being nominated
for Probate Judge and W. G. Miller for
Recorder. The balance of the ticket is
supposed to be Democratic, consisting
of John Farson for Sheriff, Samuel
Bess for Auditor, Thos. Cleary for Com
missioner and Thomas Pegg for Infirm
The temporary organisation, com
mittees, permanent organization and
the general work of the convention
were ably handled by II. J. McKinney,
of the Times, and W. E. Mason, of Co
lumbus. Sense For the Farmeri.
The venerable Senator Morrill of Ver
mont, who understands the subject of
finance and currency as well as any
other man in this country, has written
a short letter to the farmers of western
New York, which ehonld be read and
thought about by that class of citizens
in ail oi too states. It is as IoUowb :
Plain fanners mast bo able to seo that
they have nothing to gain by accepting
. a cheap dollar for all they havo to 6ell.
They will realize less, much less, as
none or their products will increase in
nominal valao to tho earno extent as the
fall in value of silver. Tho silver stan
dard would force our people to live on
tho lower scale of comforts and civiliza
tion of other silver standard countries.

I will tell you what ibis government
can do alone. It can ux its money unit,
Jfc can declare by law what shall be tho
relative value of an ounce of gold aid,
an ounco of stiver, but it cannot make
that last declaration good. It is unques
tionably fully within tho power of this
government to bring this country to a;
direr basis by coining silver dollars and
making them legal tender. They can do
that. This governmentcon say you shall
take ono of thoso dollars in discharge of,
any debt awing to you for ono dollar,1
notwithstanding you may have loaned
gold dollars; but it cannot say, and en
force its decree, if you should call out,
the regular army and navy and musten
all our great modern ships and add the'
militia, and put William J. Bryan in
command of them it cannot enforce
the decree that one ounco of gold is tho,
equivalent of sixteen ounces of silver.'
Not only that, not Franco and England'
and Germany can do that unless the
markets respond. Why? You may
make mo take a silver dollar for a debt,
but if I havo bought my goods.at goldi
prices you cannot mdko mo give as many
yards of cloth for a silver dollar ns.'l
hae been in the habit of giving for a
If I havo a gold dollar in this hand
and a silver one in that, and you declare
they nro equal, and I can toko that gold
dollar to a bullion broker and get two
Hollars for Jt, I know it is a lie. If I
have nothing but a gold dollar, and
sugar is 20 pounds for one dollar, I will
not give that gold dollar for 20 pounds
of sugar. I will take it around to a
broker and get two silver dollars for it
and get the 20 poundsofsugarandhave
one silver dollar left.. So it is, my
friends. Wo can of ourselves, of our
own -wisdom, declare tho unit of value.
We can coin silver freely, but we can
not make sixteen ounces of silver equal
to one ounce of gold unless It is. And it
is not unless the merchants take it at
that rate. That is where all this thing
comes in. Itis trade, itls tho merchant,
it is tho man who exchanges and deals
in these things that fixes the relative
alue, and if you do not take the value
ho fl.es the gold dollar will go back to
the gold vault and tho gold will go out
of circulation. Ex-President Harrison,
in His Sow York Speech.
"Tho Frco Coinage Vroulom."
"The Free Coinage Problem" is the
title of a penny magazlno or pamphlet,
by Louis N. Lombit7, of Louisville,
Ky. It contains ono of the fairest and
best discussions of the money question
to bo had at any price. It contains in
ery brief space and in simplelanguage
as much of the early history of money,
especially in this country, as is neces
sary to understand the present situa
tion. It discusses in a logical, unbiased
nnd impartial manner tho probable ef
fects of the proposed free coinage legis
lation upon all classes, nnd especially
'upon fanners and wage-earners. It pre
sents a vivid picture of the prcsenthard
lot of many farmers and shows what
kind of money will bo for their best in
terests. This little 48-page magazine contains
imore of monetary history and facts,
and -more of sonnd argument, than
cny books which cost 100 times its
price, it makes it possible for any in
telligent laborer or farmer who can
6pare one cent to become well informed
on tho money question before he casts
his vote. Ten or fifteen copies can be
ordered at onco for ten or fifteen per
sons. Otherwise it will cost two cents
to send one cent. Address Present Prob

An Iramntabln tiv of Demand.
It is not merely the women who like
to buy things cheaply. No one cares to
pay anytldng rnoro for an article than
he can help. Men who work for wages
or on salaries naturally desire that their
income shall go as far as possible in
the satisfaction of their wants.- Farm
ers, too, in behalf of whom the plea for
high prices is most frequently made,
are not overfond of paying big prices
for the things they buy. And they nre
buyers as well as sellers. The whole,
tendency of civilization is toward lower
prices nnd higher w ages.
Talk about making an "unlimited
demand for silver" by free coinage at
sixteen to one is folly. The amount of
silver money which can bo forced into
circulation is strictly limited by the
needs of business. Free silver or no free,
silver, the people will not use more of
the heavy and bulky silver dollars than
they do now.
