THE BOLTERS' APPEAL.
foolish Beuou UlTea for Their AetlM
bj the- Batting Mllvar Republican!.
At a secret conference of the bolting'
Silver delegates to the St. Louis conven
tion an address to the people of the
United States was agreed upon and
given to the press. This declaration of
free coinage doctrine was prepared
After careful consideration by Senator
Teller, Dubois and Cannon and other
silver leaders and may therefore be
held to embody the strongest argu
ments which can be found in favor of
"the silver standard.
The grounds on which Senator Teller
mad his associates ask for support are
the assertions that "the basis of our
money is relatively contracting;" that
"our financial policy is dictated by cred
itor nation';' .thai "we produce all the
accessaries of life,while other nations
consume our products; that "the res
toration of bimetallism by this coun
try will double the basis of our money
system; that "falling prices are the
deadliest curse of national life," and
that "bimetallism will help to bring
about the great hope of every social re
former" of better conditions for the
human race. On this platform the
voters nominated Senator Teller as an
Independent free coinage candidate for
These claims of the silver republicans
are all untrue. Instead of contracting,
the basis of our currency is steadily in
creasing. The production of gold is
now about $200,000,000 per year, and of
this over $130,000,000 is added to the
world's stock of money. Our stock of
full legal tnder silver has increased
from less than $80,000,000 in 18T3 to
$550,000,0000 In 1896.
Our present financial policy was de
liberately adopted by the representa
tives of the American people in congress
assembled. The charge that it was dic
tated by foreign nations is an unfound
ed imputation on the men chosen tc
make our laws.
The idea that this is a country of pro
ducers while other nations are con
sumers only is too silly for argument.
For every dollar's worth of products we
Mil abroad we buy back at some time o
dollar's worth of foreign products,
which we consume. We consume in the
long run exactly as much as we pro
The claim that "bimetallism," by
wfcjch is meant free coinage at sixteen
to one, will double the basis of our mon
ey system is not believed by the silver-
ite themselves. They know better, for
tiey know that with the bullion value
f silver at thirty to one, the cheaper
metal would drive out tie more valua
ble. Thus, instead of doubling the basic
of our xnoney.freesilver monometallism
would cut it in two by forcing gold out
Falling prices are due almost entire
ly to Improved methods of production
by which labor on the farm or In the
workshop can create wealth more
easily than in former years. This
means that the masses can get
more of the necessaries and luxuries
of life, and it is therefore a great
blessing, and not a curse. Other rea
sons for falling prices are the new
sources of production opened up In
various parts of the world in recent
years. The gold standard has had
nothing to do with the lower prices.
The claim that "bimetallism (silvei
monometallism) will bring about the
great hope of every social reformer"
would be more convincing if it were ac
companied by information as to how it
would do it. In the absence of proof
general promises of better conditions
under free silver are altogeth?i
too vague for sensible men to take risks
on. A policy which depends on baseless
assertions and positive perversion ol
facts can never gain the support of 8
majority of the American people, and
the movement headed by Senator Tel
ler is therefore doomed to failure.
Small Boat. Big Whlatle.
The free coinage boat is pretty much
all whistle, and when this sixteen to one
whistle blows the paddle wheel stops.
Much noise und little work is the rea
son why the boat don't go.
Cause at Free Silver Craze.
The causes of the free silver craze ard
thought by the Baltimore Sun to be
"the same which caused 1 he grernlK-cli
heresy to find advocates in so many
states of the union "0 years ai,'o the
feeling of unrest and a desire for a
change, no matter what, produced by
hard times, bad business and lack ol
employment the desire, conscious or
unconscious, of debtors to scale their
debts by paying them in a depreciated
currency the vague idea that 'more
money in circulation' means more
money ineach individual's pocket, with
out reference to his means or opportu
nity to earn or acquire it."
Killing; the Goose, Etc.
The Baltimore Sun points out that
"our 'good' times have in the past al
ways been times when foreigners were
investing money freely among us. It
was not altogether or chiefly our own
savings that made business brisk. It
was the continued influx of foreign
gold. Now wo are unfortunately iso
lated by the threat of the silver basis,
and shall be bottled up industrially if
we shall ever actually reach it. Our
theorists kill the goose that laid th
