Mr. buyer theu told of a trip ho

every quarter section thre was once

Functions of Money.
I no imperial function or money
is aerivea irnm the hat ot law", con
tinned Mr. Ouycr. '-Whatever the
law says shall be legal tender for the
payment of a debt is money. Capi
talists, however, have always insisted
that the peoplo could not be trusted
to keep within bounds in issuing pa
per money, that there would be dan
gcr of issuing money iu unlimited
amounts, which would be unjust to
the creditor. The whole power of
the capitalist therefore has been ex
ertcd to influence governments to
use some commodity to redeem its
fiat money with, and in that way
iney nave nxeu a limitation beyond
which money .could not depreciate.
(iold and silver have been universally
usea as such redemption money from
tbe earliest dates in history. From
the date ot the itoroan expire to 1S73
theso metals have been so used and
different countries have from time to
time iixed by law a ratio between
them, and tied them together. For
instance in 16(36 England made
ratio of lot to 1. In 15('.8 Portugal
made a ratio of Ifi to 1. This ration
went into effect in the colonies of
Portugal and Spain and in South
America, and it was these people
who gave the name to our unit of
coinage, and it was those dollars

lie money, and it so continued down
to 1873. Two slight changes were
made in tbe t-i.e of tbe 2 old dollar
but the system oi bimetallism was
never changed until 173. And so
from the days of the liiiuan do
through every period of history
England and throughout the world
down to the founding cf this repub
lie the system of bimetallism came to
us as a most important tieritage, no
excepting the common law and th
trial by jury. It was farther reach
mg ia its influences than cither. It
was as much a part of our mother
constitution as was the common law
and so important was it that the n
tional constitution prescribed tbat
no state should ever make anything
a legal tender except goll and silver

"Why was this bimetallic system
more important than the trial
by jury and the common law. Be.
cause this system under which this
country has grown up was a great
scale measuring the value of all
property and of labor. It was the
cale tbat regulated tne equities be
tween debtor and creditor. I claim
that being a part cf our unwritten
constitution congress had no author
ity to change the scale.
Sew UM DC VOMgM,
But the scale being changed in
1873 and gold being used alone to
regulate and furnish a hmitstion to
the appreciation of money and the
depreciation of produce, the drone
began to thrive and the producer to
anguish. The drones then per-
uaded Germany and Austria and
other countries to follow our ex
ample and increased the purchasing
power ot their incomes more every
time, and it is these drones who
have taken control of the -repub. lean
party and who are spending money
n unlimited amounts to prevent the
restoration of the scales.
"How was it a scale? Why the
value cf each dollar depended npon
the total quantity of metal in the
world out ot which dollars could be
made. The value of everything de-
pends on the quantity to supply the
demand. The value of each sack of
flour depends on the total quantity of
wheat out of which flour can be
made. Present winter wheat from
going to tbe mills and require flour
to be made out oi spring wheat, the
value of each barrel of flour will
be doubled. So it is with money of
redemption. Take away halt the

Htill further to assist competition;
will you assist the English bond
holder to cheapen silver so
that he can use it to set a still
ower price on the chief production
of this country, the production
that furnishes 75 per cent of our
exports tho pcoduction of the farm.
tor remember our farmer s competi
tor in inaia, itussia and south Amer
tea is paid in silver, and he is satis-
lied, for tho old price for silver has
not depreciated in its exchangeable
value with everything cn earth but
gold. Oar farmer cannot expect any
more than his competitors, and so he
receives a return that pays just half
as much cf his debts as his com pet
ttors cin pay."

ovation, three cheers for him being
given by the Bryan club. Mr. Me

the republican pirty as a party of
tne crime of '73, but he did insist
th it there was no ge'ttng around

was not duo to overproduc'.ion, and
if it were wrong, as has been ad

cans, except John Sherman, to have
demonetized silver, It is wrong to

crs from Dubuque have been plying
tbe waters of the Mississippi with a

large numbers of fish, all in violation
of law. It 13 held that if the linh
warden of this statecould be induced
to co-operate with the same oflicial
in Illinois this illegal lishing could
bo suppressed. It mi?ht not be a
bad thing to make an effort to secure
this co-operation before grumbling
because it has not been had. The
fish commissioner of the state of
Iowa has never yet been accused by
auTuuuj oi not attending to his bus
iness whenever there was a violator
of the fish law to ho dpnlt with.
Iowa is as anxious as Illinois to have
the lish in the Mississippi preserved.
