THE FARMER'S FRIEND.
Tree Silver Would llcjp tho Fnrmor by
Reduclnc thq Wages of Ills Help.
Farmer I reckon this freo silver's
about tho best friend of us farmers
that's come our vvny since the vvnr. Al
lowing1 Drynn's elected nil right this
year, I calc'latc I'll be worth nearly
$2,000 more next year than now.
Farmer's Wife Nonsense, Harvel I
don't believe silver's going1 to make
folks rich. One'll hae to work for a
living if Bryan's elected just us hard ns
If he isn't.
F. I don't deny but what your head's
level there, June Some folks will have
to work harder, but It won't bo us farm
ers. We'll come ou on top with free
silver. That's suro'pshooten.
F. W. Wbnt cnusy notion's in j our
head now, anyhow? D'yoa think farm
ers are smarl enough to make laws
that'll talto money out of other folks'
pockets and put ilintp theirs?
F. P'raps not, but they'ro going to
try It. I s'posc you don'tsee how free
silver'll help us, but I do.
F. W. If you'll take my mhlce you'll
not bother yourself to denlh tryingfo
get rich by free sliver. I'll warrant it
won't work us you eale'late.
F. I'll tell you one way it'll help
me, Jane. You know thai if we got
free coinage we, will have silver dollars
worth 'bout 50 cents same's Mexican
F. W. I thought Bryan said thatcil
ver'U be worth just as much as gold
when we get free silver.
F. Yes, thatte what he says in the
cast, so's he won't scare the mill hands
end savings banks folks too much. But
he don't talk -that v ay out here, because
he know s that nin't whnt w e're after.
Vo want cheap money, so's prices of
wheat, corn and pork'll be twice as high,
same as in Mexico.
F. W. Supp's'n' they are? Wouldn't
jou hae to pay twice as much for
clothes and groceries and everything
else 3-ou'd have to buy? If you got
two dollars instead of one dollar, you'd
have to spend two dollars instead of
one dollar. It'd bens broad as it islong.
If that's the w ny silver's going to mako
jou rich, you'll neer get rich.
F. But I wouldn't ha e to spend two
dollaro for every dollar I spend now.
You know, we have at least two hired
men the whole jear, and three to five
more from April to November, besides
the hired girl for most of the year. Do
jou reckon I'm going to raise their pay
when wegetfree silver?
I'. W. I s'pose so. Why shouldn't
F. Just because I wouldn't have to.
P'raps af tern j ear or so I'd give 'em two
or three dollars more a month, but noth
ing like double what thej're getting
now. I eale'late I'd save between $300
and $1,000 in wages not quite so much
on John and Dav e, because they board
with us, and of course the price of some
of the things they eat w ould go up, but
I'd save 'bout half on my day hands
who live and board at home. That's
how I figger it, and it's 'cording to tho
opinion of Gov. Boies and other big
silver people. They say farm wages is
too high for profits and that silver'll
bring 'em down.
r. W. And so that's why you're for
free silver, Harve Grimes; wantto cheat
your poor hired hands out of half their
wages, men who now can hardly keep
their families out of thepoorhouse! 1
thought it was them Wall street shy
locks and goldbugs you're after with
your free silver stick and that you're
trying to square accounts with them
rich fellers, but It seems
F. Hold up there, Jane! Free sil
ver's going to save us 'bout $1,000 on
w hat I still owe on that $4,000 mort
gage. Who d'you think'll lose that?
F. W. I don't care who'd lose it,
'Tain't right to cheat anybody, but I
w ouldn't say a w ord so long's it's some
body who could afford to lose it, but
when it comes to cheating your poor
neighbors It's time to put a stop to it.
I don't care if you never got that other
farm paid for. I guess we w on't starv e
on this old farm. I'm going to tell
John and Dave and all the others just
how free silver will hurt them, and
I'll get them all to vote against Bryan.
The idea of such fnrmers as you trying
to elect Bryan to cut down the wages
of your hired men! I'm ashamed of
you, I am!
Bryau's Tvro-rucod Argument.
When argument is based upon a
wrong principle,, is- full of inconsist
encies. Candidate Brjan says that our
dollar Is too valuable; that it has en-
hanced luitll two bushels of wheat' are
now required in exchange for a dollar,
whereas one bushel of wheat was ex
changeable for a. dollar in days gone by.
Mr. Brjan's remedy for this is to
cheapcai Una dollar. This is logical, and
the dollar vv ould certainly bo dheapened
by "fro coinage." No doubt of that.
6o fan Candidate Brynn Is consistent,
but vi ult n, moment. He says also Hint
the tux coinage of silver by the United
State alone would doublo tho price of
sllvear bullion and make it worth $1.20
per ounce In gold the world over. If
thiB advance should result, the silver
dollar would rise in. vnluetd the present
worth of the gold dollar, and there
would bo absolutely no cliAugo in our
financial system. These two proposi
tions aro utterly pt variance with each
ofiicr. Oho of thjm. must of necessity

Eay Treasons Abont Money.
At first all money was weighed in
scales. The first money trade told in the
Bible was in silver, "And Abraham
weighed to Ephron 400 shekels of silver,
current money with the merchant." A
shelvel was half an ounce.
It was not easy to carry round a pair
of scales and weigh out metal each
time there was a trade. So coins were
A shekel or some -vv eight of silver or
of gold Was weighed out, melted to
gether and stamped with a dio show
ing its weight. Now money could bo
counted Instead of weighed out. This
made trading much easier.
AnythiDg that makes trading easier
Silver was first in general uso for
coins. But as people became better off
and had larger trades to make silver
was too weighty. So gold como into use.
As nations have become better of
they have como to use gold more than
silver. The great trading nations udvv
use the gold standard and only the '
poorer nations tho silver standard for '
their money systems. N. Y. World. i
Wliy Does Not Mr. Bryan AnawerT j
Mr. Bryan tells tho farmers that free
coinage of silver will give them cheap j
dollars with which to pay their debts.
Mr. Bryan tells city wo rkingmen that
free coinage of silver will raise the
metal to $1.20 per ounce, bringing the
silver dollar to par with the gold dol
lar, thus giving city workingmen an
other dollar as good as the present pne
with which to buy the fanners' prod
ucts. That is to cay, to tho farmer tho
Bryan silv er dollar Is to be a cheap dol
lar to pay debta w ith. To city labor
the Bryan dollar is to be a dollar of
high purchasing power to buy with.
Free coinage of silver cannot produco
these two dollars. It can produce only
one of tho two. Why do not would-be
supporters of Mr. Bryan ask him which
dollar he really means? Both the farm
er, who wants to pay debts, and tho
workingman, who must buy farm prod
uce, arc interested in having this ques
tion answered. Chicago Times-Herald.

l. it Unprejudiced and Can We Afford
to Tollow It?
Mr. Bryan uppears to set great store
by the letter which Gov. Culberson, of
Texas, has received from Prince Bis
marck. The "people's friend" is willing
to receive advice from the "Man of
Blood and Iron," and the "champion
of the American iarmcr" listens to
that famous friend of American agrl
culture who shut tho German ports to
American pork in 18S4 and to American
potatoes in 1885, and who would gladly
have united all central Europe jn a
customs league aimed directly against
all American produce. Bismarck's
lather diplomatic letter is taken by Mr.
Bryan in his recent speeches to favor
the free coinage of silver by the United
States. The dev otion of Chancellor Bis
marck to the cause of silver may be
seen in the following historical fact,
which appears to have escaped general
Under his guidance as chancellor of
the empire and minister of commerce
for Prussia the equivalent of 1,080,
000,000 marks (over $270,000,000) in sil
er was demonetized between the years
1874 and 1881, and over $100,000,000
worth of the bullion into which these
were melted had been 6oldby 1870. In
that year, finding that the price of sil
ver was becoming demoralized, so that
his remaining $100,000,000 was depre
ciating, he stopped sales by a decree
issued in May, 1870. These points were
frankly stated by his delegation to the
international monetary conference of
1881, when Germany likewise offered
to suspend sales for a time in order
that the price might not be further
depressed. With these nsburnnces be
fore the monetary powers and with the
decree of 1870 s'till in force, Bismarck
saw an opportunity of dumping some
German hilver on the sly and proceeded
to do so. In 1885 the Egyptian govern
ment decided to change its coinage and
invited bid. for contiacts to coin its
silver piasters. The German mint se
cured the oontractto make the coin and
Incidentally furnished 93,180.000 of sil
ver bullion to Egypt. The matter was
kept very quiet or escaped general no
tice. Reference to it will be found,
however, in the London Economist of
December 4. 1SS0, which saw in it n
proof of Bismarck's lack of faith in
