of Indianapolis, employing over one

one of his well known favorite
amusements of challenging any one
who should differ with him to meet
him in joint debate on any or all of
the propisitions he should lay down
on this occasion. He declared him
self unequivocally in favor of the free
and unlimited coinage .of silver and

oth.-r nation on earth. He reviewed
the history of tlie use of jrolil and sil
