Mott, ha Usued from its headquarters in
this city an address to the friends of sil
ver. This address recites that since the
founding of the National Silver party on
Jan. S3 last the work of organization has
baen steadily but quietly pursued and the
country aroused to a pitch of excitement
unknown since the civil war. It declare
that the secret of success in the pending
conflict consists in lining up for the battlo
and that the convention of the party to
be held in St. Louis on July 9 will un
doubtedly be one of the most important
conventions and notable gatherings ever
assembled in this country. Upon the wis
dom of its acts and that of the People's
party convention to be held at the same
place and time depends, the address de
clares, 'the vital question as to whether
we can have a just settlement cf this
money issue in our generation."
Crged to Pub. the Work.
The friends of the party are urged to
push the work of organization with all
possible vigor, the purpose being to unite
for action nil believers in the restoration
of "free silver and prosperity." The ad
dress concludes as follows: "The Repub
lican party is committed to the gold stand
ard through the platforms of &t) per cent,
of the state conventions, and any straddle
that may lie made in its national platform
will deceive no one. The Democratic party
must not expect the country to accept any
candidate it may mime acquiesced in by
the gold wing of the party.
. Time to Art Is at Once.
"The question of vital importance is for
silver meu to name a candidate for presi
dent whose nomination will be readily
acquiesced in by all believers in monetary
reform. Friends of silver, look to your
interests and organize now, while the
fruit is ripe for plucking. Do not wait on
the problematical action of any party.
