INGERSOLL ON MONEY.
The Colonel States Some Flaln Troths la
Bis Own Unique Way.
Following Is an extiract from tlie
speech of Col. Robert G. Ingcxsall at
Chicago on October 8:
Honey that is money needs no gtaw
antee, needs no backer; it is always
food. No matter bow many nations go
down to dost, good money remains for
ever the same. We have a man running
for the presidency on three platforms,
with two vice presidents, that says
money is a creature of law. If thel
government can make money by law,
why should the government collect
taxes? According to Mr. Bryan, car
fathers were the friends of silver, and
yet our dear old fathers in all their
lives minted only 8,000,000 of these sa
cred dollars. Now, eee what the cne
mies of silver have done. Since 1873
the enemies of silver have coined over
430,000,000 of these dollars, and ye
silver kept going down. Wo are color
ing now over $2,000,000 a month, and
silver keeps going doum.
Senator Jones, of Nevada, in 1S73,
voted for the law cf 1873. He said,
from his speech in the senate, that God
hod made gold the standard. lie said
that gold was the mother of civiliza
tion. Whether he has heard from God
since or not I do not know. But now ha
is on the other side. Senator Stewart, of
Nevada, was tihereatthe time, but voted
for the act of 1S73, and said that gold
was the only standard. He has changed
his mind. No government cam afford to
be a clipper on coins.
A great Tepublie cannot afford to
etnmp a lie on silver or gold or paper.
Honest money for an honeet people, is
sued by nn honest nation. You cannot
make a paper dollar without taking a
dollar's worth of paper. We must have
paper that represents money. I want it
issued by the government, and I want
boliind every one of these paper dollars
either a dollar in gold or a. silver
dollar worth 100 cents, so that every
greenback under the flag can lift op its
Lands and swear: "I know that my re
deemer liveth." That was where I waa
0 years ago, and that is where I am to
Ftr nations and individuals, at all
times, everywhere and forever, honesty
is tlie best policy. Better be an honest
bankrupt than a rich thief. Poverty can
hold in its hand the jewel honor a
jewel tint putliii:s all o?!i?r gems. A
thousaivJ times let.U-r be poor and coble
thai rich and fraudulent. Nobody can
be helped by free coinage except the few
people who could pay their debts if they
were willing. Souk- say that it would
help the mine owners. It would not.
Coining this bullion intodollars would
not increase its viilue, because you could
coin the bullion cf t lie whole world and
the supply would be jrreater than the
ik'iiinnd. Have free coinage to-morrow,
nrd there is not a silver mine owner
that would make a dollar not one by
char.i'.'- it into American, coin. It
would be worth only what the bullion
is wcyth in the open market.
We want good money good, honest
money. And there was never any real
prosperity for a lialion or an individual
without honesty, without integrity, and
it is our duty to preserve the reputation
of ths great republic.
Trustee's Sale of Heal Estate
Whereas. Alfred Minton and Fran
ces E. Minton, husband and wife, of
t.id County of Cape Girardeau and
Stale of Missouri, on the 2nd day of

so the following described land:

Cuba is furnishing a nearby example.
cf the beauties of government regula
tion of the value of money on the Bryan
plan. Cnpt. Gen. Wey ler had a deficient
mpply of er.bli, and so he had the Banco
Bspanol put out a lot of paper money
and issued a stringent edict timt every
body should take it ut a par with gold.
As the island is practically under mar
tial law, there was government con
trol of the currency at its best. If ycu
didn't take the banic bills at pit;, you
were liable to be shot. Even Bryan
couldn't do more for silver than that.
But did the edict keep the bank r.oU,
at par? Not for a day. Aline: t instant
ly they were at a discount, which soon
au.iuir.t.'.-d to -0 per cent. Even with
guiis and bayonets you cannot iual:o
so cents equal a dollar. Weyler has had
to give up trying. He has finally al
lowed the Havana stock exchange to
iiote the value of the bank bills in gold.
We were going to say that this proves
the j ov.i rlessness of law to establish
the value of money, but. we remcn:
bt r in time that Cuba has less than -.-000,000
population to our 70,000,000:
that : he never put. down the greatest
rcl'ciron of modern tiuv.-7; but her
inhabitants r.re not 1he richest, proud
est, most intelligent people on cart!:,
and so we are not so sure. Her cast: is
only a part of universal experience,
but we have changed all that. N. V.
