TRUE DEMOCRATIC DOCTRINE.

conviction that "the nearest approach to

Andrew Jackson, in 1836, wrote;
"There is no fraud in gold. It is nn
changeable and will do its office every'
where and at all times. Labor imparts
ian invariable value to it."
Benton, in 1834, said in debate: "It
(cold) has an intrinsic value, which
jgives it currency all over the world to
the full amount of that value without
-regard to law or circumstances. It has
a uniformity of value which makes it
the safest standard of value of property
which the wisdom of man has yet dis
covered. Its superiority over all other
money gives its possessor the choice
and command of all other money.
Flawing' this debate the act called
lij PnAmineKtjmiWm imlfi hill. in
tended to put the country on a single
gold standard, was passed, 145 to 36 in
-the house and 35 to 7 in the senate, and
signed by Andrew Jackson, president.
The house committee, in 1853, report
ed: "Gold is the onlv standard of value
by which all property is now measured.
It is virtually the only currency of the
country. We desire to have the standard
irarrency to consist of gold only, and
that these silver coins shall be entirely
subservient to it, and that they shall be
lused rather as tokens than as standard
fioaad Logic for the Workinrmaa to Caa
slder. The question will never be .settled
tin til you determine the simple ques
tion whether the laboring man is en
titled to a gold dollar if he earns it, or
whether you are going to cheat him
with something else. That is the upshot
of the whole thing. There have
been a great many battle foug-ht against
gold, and gold has won every time. I
do not care how much you discuss it or
how many resolutions you pass, they do
sot make any difference. You must
come to the same conclusion that all
other people have that gold is recogr
nized as the universal standard of value.
It is the measure by which your wealth
must be tested. It has been and always
will be the touchstone of measurement,
and when you depart from that and try
to figure up any other measure which
the world does not recognize you get
into confusion. Attempting to reconcile
them, it is idle to talk about. It is idle
to talk about compromising on any
other measure of value. The world will
not accept it. We have the experience
.of every nation that has tried it, and it
has been tried in almost every civilized
nation. Do not let us try to de
ceive the American people. Do not let
us try to make them believe by some
hocus pocus of legislation that we can
give them something of real value we
can give them a measure of value that
is better than the universal standard of
mankind. Do not deceive them in that
regard. Let them know the facts now.
I believe that it would be highly injuri
ous to this country to again inflate the
currency. I need not enlarge
upon the evils of a depreciated cur
rency. This country has felt that too
severely to require that I should men
tion them. It matters not what kind
of a depreciated currency you have, it
necessarily entails many evils.
"The Crime of 73."
The following explanations why the
silver dollar should no longer bt coined
were made in the house of representa
tives April 9, 1872:
It has become impossible to retain
an American dollar in this country ex
cept in collections of curiosities.
The silver dollar "has long since
ceased to be a coin of circulation.
The gold dollar should be declared
the money unit." Mr. Iloopcr.
The principal change proposed by
the bill was in "more clearly specify
ing the gold dollar as the unit of value.
The time has come hi this
country when the gold dollar should
be distinctly declared to be the coin
representative of the money unit."
Restore the Zero I'rccxing Point.
In the haste in which the democrats
at Chicago prepared their platform
they forgot to include the pl.ink de-
daring in favor of restoring the nat
ural freezing point of zero. Mankind
has suffered and shivered tremendously
because of this inhuman standard of
temperature, adopted uudoubtedly at
the instigation of coal barons and quack
doctors. Without waiting for the aid
or consent of any other nation, let us
proceed to lower the freezing point and
to reform onr climate in the interests of
Even though the fanners may be
right in thinking that they are not as
prosperous as they ought to be, it by no
means follows that free coinage will1
improve their condition. Because a maa
