Dr. John Clark Kiripath. the eminent
historian, who Imx rprpntly been nomi

" Ariciriliiik' to my way of thinking our
government has been steadily clrilsiiix
away from th« people and Betting into
the i«i»-it of special interests. The circle
of government baa narrowed and narrow
ed till it appears to me the height of ab
surdity to call it any longer a govern
ment 'of the people, for the people and
by the people.' I want to see this pro
cess completely reveised. I want to tee
the government restored to the people.
I believe precisely what Webster and
Theodore Parker and Lincoln declared,
viz: That our republic if, or ought to
be, a government of the people, for the
people and by them.
"liow can there be any harm in such
a doctrine? In the name of common
sense, has it come to pass that patriotic
citizens in the United States of Ameri
cannot advocate the right of the people
to govern themselves? Has it come to
this that we have sure enough a lot of
self-constituted masters who shall tell ua
what is good for us ami how we shall ob
tain it? Are/we Americans a lot of
younglings who are unable to lead our
selves, but must be led rather as with a
string and fed on porridge as witb a
"Among the methods as it seems to
me by which the government is to be re
covered by the people is, first of all, as
the matter now stands, the restoration of
our currency. We want our currency
system put back precisely where it was
under the statute and constitution for the
first 81 years of our existence as a nation.
Our statutory bimetallic system of cur
rency was taken from us in 1873 by a
process which I do not care to charac
terize in fitting terms. Now we propose
to have it back again. The restoration
of our silver money to the place it held
before is the people's cause, and the peo
ple in this contest are going to triumph.
They are going to triumph in the open
light of day under the clear gleam of
light and truth.
"The silver dollar was from of old the
unit of money and account in the United
States. . The dollar to this hour has nev
er been altered by the fraction of a grain
in the quantity of pure metal composing
it. Every other coin, whether" gold or
silver, baa been altered time and again,
but the silver unit never. The silver
dollar was the dollar of the law and the
contract. It is to t!ii» day the dollar of
law and the contract. To the silver unit
all the rest, both gold and silver, have
been conformed from our first statute of
1702 to that ill-starred date when the
conspiracy against oar old constitutional
order first declared itself. The gold eaK | e
of the original statute and of all subse
quent statutes was not made to be teo
dollars, but to be the value of ten dollars.
The halt-eagle was not made to be five
dollars, but to be the value of five dol
lars. The quarter-eagle was of the value
of two and one-half dollar* and the
double eagle was of the value of twenty
dollars. Even the gold dollar of 1849,
marvelous to relate, was not a dollar, but
wmh made to be the value of a dollar.
The subsidiary coins were all fractions of
tbe dollar and the dollar was of silver
"Not a single dictionary or encyclo
pedia in the English language before the
year 1878 ever defined dollar in any terms
other than of tilver. In that year the
administrators of the estate of Noah
Webstar, deceased, cat the plates of our
standard lexicon and inserted a new defi
nition that had become necessary in or
der to throw a penumbra of rationality
aronnd the international gold conspir
"The way to obviate the future disas
trous effects of this international gold
conspiracy is to stop it. We want the
system of bimetallism restored in this
country. Bimetallism means the option
of the debtor to pay in either of twostatu
tory coins according to his own conveni
ence and according to the contract. Tbia
option freely granted, the commercial
parity of the two money metals will be
speedily reached, nor can such parity
ever be seriously disturbed a^ain as long
as the unimpeded option of the debtor
to pay in the one metal or the other shall'
be conceded by law and the terms of the
contract. The present commercial dis
parity of the two metals has been pro
duced by the pernicious legislation which
began 23 years ago and which has not
yet satisfied itself with the monstrous re
sults that have flamed therefrom.
"What do we propose to accomplish by .
free coinage? We propose to do just thi«
thing, viz: to break the corner on gold
and reduce the exaggerated purchasing
power of that metal to its normal stand
ard. Be assured there will be no further
talk of • 50-cant dollar when tin- commer
cial parity <>( the tiro m met metal* ahall
be reached. Every well-informed peraoo
mutt know that the present disparity of
the two uncoined metals is but the index
of the extent to which gold has been dul
led in the markets cf the wnrld. It is
not an index of the extent to which raw
silver has declined in its purchasing pow
er in the markets of the world, (or raw
silver has not declined in its purchasing
power as compared with the average of
other commodities In any civilized mar
ket plane of the whole globe. No man
shall say the contrary and speak the
troth. This great question is hot upon
us. It can be kept bark no longer. It
Is a tremendous economic question thst
ought to be decided in the court of right,
reason and of fact. My judgment is that
the American people in spite of all oppo
sition are going to reclaim the right of
transacting their business, and in par
ticular of paying their debts according to
a standard unit worth a hundred cents to
the dollar, neither more nor less, and
that they will not accept the intolerable
programme which declares in fact if not
in words that they sliall henceforth trans
act their busines* and in particular dia
charge their debts with a cornered gold
dollar worth almost two for one."
Cleared His Client.
There are four bosom companions in
Jacksonville, ssy» the Florida Viliten—
the broker, the dentist, the undertaker
and the capitalist. Where you see one of
them you will flnd the rest—taking a
drink. The undertaker and the capitalist
admire the dentist and broker because
they can tell such wonderfully clever
stories. The broker and dentist revere
and love the undertaker and the capital
ist because they are such wonderfully
This happy, admiringquartette form an
ideal roundtable, and around this round
table the two listeners often hear good
stories i>y the dentist and broker. The
dentist is an imaginative sort of a story
teller, who manufactures finales to fit in
cidents. The broker is a great reader, a
realist and a philosopher.
One night the broker told of a lawsuit
in Alabama. A cracker from the moun
tains was on trial for shooting and wound
ing a "nigger." He was arrested, and,
having no money, the judge appointed
the broker to defend him. The broker
was not a lawyer in the legal sense of the
word, but the judge, who was an old col
lege mate of his, says he was an idiot be
cause he was'nt one; in other words he
was a lawyer by instinct. The broker
cross questioned the witness briefly, send
ing in now and then a sarcastic and
discomfltting trajectory. When he came
to make a speech be said:
"Gentlemen of the jury, I have taken
great pains to show you that my client
was a respectable citizen. Ten witnesses
have asserted—on oath, mind you—that
be stands high in his community."
Tbe defendant was six feet three inches
tall and the jury smiled.
"He stood high in his community, and
that is sufficient. Now for the law. We
find in tbe thirtieth verse of the sixteenth
chapter of Chitty on Pleadings—Chitty,
gentlemen, was one of the bravest gener
erals In tbe Confederate army—this well
established principle of law."
Here the broker snaps his eyes together
and adjusts his glasses, holds the book
far off, elevates his chin, and reads:
"No respectable white man can be
guilty of crime."
"That gentlemen, is enough. I leave
the case in your hands."
Each juror changed his quid, looked «t
his neighbor, nodded, and without leav
ing their seats, rendered a loud and em
phatic verdict of "Not guilty," and then
joined in three cheers for the defendant
and his lawyer.

"Because the United States is a debtor
nation it cannot dictate to its money
system or institute a measure that will
lead to bimetellisni, (or should it do so,
the creditor nations would sink it into
bankruptcy," is a favorite ar^. -ont of
the gold press at the present time. And
it is (urther asserted that "should the
United States adopt the unrestricted coin
age of silver it would be repudiation of
our foreign obligations."
Are there not two sides to these ques
tions'. 1 ask The Dalle* TimrtMouutainerr.
Let os see. Let us consider the situation
of our foreign creditors from • business
standpoint and see if they, instead of
sinking us into bankruptcy, will not aid
as in bringing abont a most perfect sys
tem of ImiiPtallifin. It is of course to
their advantage that our public obliga"
tions to them, both principal and inter
est, l>c paij in the dearest money possi
ble, which is gold, but a» onr interest
bearing public- debt is payable in coin,
the creditor!) have no option as to what
metal they shall receive. The same is
true with regard to a large amount of
our railroad and other bonds held abroad.
The hoMinicH of American securities in
England, France and Germany are very
great, reaching into billions oi dollars
and these securities are held by the men
who dictate the financial policies of those
nations. What course will those men
pursue when they are convinced tbat the
United Staffs has determined tbat tbeir
securities, both principle and interest, are
payable in other coin besides gold ? Will
it be to their interest to suffer their na
tions to discriminate against a money
which they ars forced to receive? As
suredly not. It will not be to their in
terest to make the money which they
must receive of full and equal value with
the recognized standard money of the
gold countries. If they are to be paid in
silver, they will want that silver to have
an equal value with the recognized stand
ard money of the gold countries. If they
are to be paid in silver, they Till want
that silver to have an equal purchasing
power with gold, and tbeir energies will
bo exerted in making it so by causing
silver to be recognized as a standard
money in ibeir respective countries. And
since the supply of the two metals Is so
nearly equal, based on a ratio of sixteen
ounces to one of gold, the logical method
for them to pursue would be to establish
a system of bimetallism throughout the
commercial nations of Europe on that
basis. Hence, as conservative and far
seeing business men, in order to protect
themselves, it will be to their interest to
aid in bringing silver to an equal vain.'
with gold instead of attempting to fur
ther depreciate it and sink a silver stand
ard country into bankruptcy. Instead of
being our enemies and enemies to onr
financial system, they will be onr friends.
The condition of our European credi
tors finds a parallel in the circumstances
existing between the hankers of The
Dulles and the wool raisers of Eastern
Oregon today. There are between seven
and eight million pounds of wool stored
here. The banks of this city have ex
tended large credits to the holders of this
wool. In order that these credits shall
be met, it is to the interest of the banker*
that the wool shall command the highest
possible price, that is that the purchasing
power of the wool be raised instead of
lessened. The bankers want and are
entitled to the return of every dollar they
have advanced to the wool raiser, and
they are exerting every means in aiding
their clients to realize every dollar possi
on their product, not to lessen i've value
of the wool which represents the proper
ty or the money of their clients. Onr
foreign creditors are in the same position.
Now they want their interest pai ■'■ ■a gold
because it is the standard money of the
world, but when they are convinced that
their interest will be paid in silver, it will
stand them in hand to aid in enhancing
the purchasing power of that metal. This
can be accomplished by increasing its
demand, which can and sill be the re
sult when it is recognized as a money
metal by the world. Therefore when
the United Stales leads off by removing the
restriction of its coinage, our creditors
will be compelled to force the «<nioniti
zation of silver in their own cations.

recently," said Hon. Thomas F. Lane of
New Jersey at the Normaudie, "I learned
from a gentleman of unquestioned relia

ists were subscribing money freely to the
republican campaign fund in this coun
try in order to. help, elect McKinley. My
iufosc^ant was, an Englishman, sad the
statement was not mads on hta.iay. He
said that the class of people who were
thus aiding the republican candidate
were men of means, who had made lam*
investment*, in Ametica. They wet*
more interested in our approaching elec

heat in the British metropolis as in New
"In Paris, where I ipent a few days,
the people are not concerning themselves
in the least about the money wrangles

think of with reference to the United
States is how to extort the maximum
amount of cash from Uncle Sam's sub

are utterly oblivions of the great battle of

Tbe populisU in the country who
threaten to vote for MrKinley if Sewall
is not taken off the ticket ought to read
Tom Watson's patriotic words which he
uttered at the populist state convention
at Atlanta, (is., recently. He said :
"We are not going to pnt up any candi
date against Bryan. We are going to
vote for Bryan whether Sewall is with
drawn or not. I am going to manvga
this campaign so that W. J. Bryan gets
every vote we have got. I see the dread
evils of McKinleyism threatening us, aad
I fear that if we are defeated in this fight
McKinleyism will be enthroned forever,
and the battles for freedom had just as
well be given up. I Bball tell my people
to stand by the contract at Si. Louis.
Let Bryan have every vote you can mus

him inbiilt you if he will. Make no an

Activity of Eckle*.
The American Banln of July Lit has an
extended statement of tbe forced resigna
tion of President Jaquith of the Hancock
national bank. He was and is a silver
man, and Comptroller Eckles wrote to a
director of the bank tbat unless President
Jaquith resigned, he would take steps to
wind up tbe affairs of the bank, where
upon the president resigned. The paper
explains that the bank is admittedly all
right. There was nothing to prompt the
demand and threat, except that the presi
dent is a silverman. No comment is
necessary, except that much better men

Philadelphia American: Mr. McKin
ley's speeches are a disappointment to
those who hoped from him a corrective
to tbe St. Louis Platform. They display
the same ignorant or wilful assumption
that gold represents a fixed and unchang
ing value, and the same exultation in
having our money at the present value of
gold and keeping it there. There ia not
even tbe hint of a reason for desiring a
change in the situation, or for "promot

restoration of silver to its old place.

The pretty and inexpensive bamboo
furniture so much used now requires to
be treated differently from the ordinary
wooden furniture. As bamboo is liable
to crack and come apart, it must be fed
so as to counteract the ill effects dryness
in the room. The furniture should be
exposed to the air whenever possible. Da
not pUcetoo near a (ire, and it should be
rubltad regularly with equal parts of lin
seed oil and turpentine, applied with a
I! innel and then rubbed in with a soft
cloth. An occasional wash in cold water,
followed by • thorough drying, is good
for bamboo furniture.
