A rear endcollison attended by seriots
results, occurred on the Rock Island trac ka
back of tbe Peal house, in Moline, at 4
o'clock this morning. Freight train ft,
running between Chicago and Rock It I
and, was coming toward this point in four
sections. Tbe first section reached Mo
line shortly before the time stated, pulled
by engine 437, Engineer Coulong, dnvt r,
It is customary . with freight en
gines coming this way to atop at Co
lona for water, but thia morning
it wss supposed there waa enough
in tbe engine tank to come into
Rock Island. When Moline was reacted
however, it waa discovered that this was a
mistake and that while tbe water nil(;ht
last ordinarily there was not enough to
pull the train on to this c ty. It vas
decided therefor to run down "empty to
Rock Island for water and return. Tbe
engine was detached and a flagman mt
back to warn the second section of ':he
delay. It was due to the fltgman'a fidl
ure for some reason to discharge his d'ltv
that the accident occured. He fell, he
claims, in ruoning to flag the approach ng
train and irjured his limbs so painfully
that he was unable to proceed
At any rats the engine of second
39 crashed into the delayed first section
with tremendous force. The collid ne
locomotive was No. 431. Wm. Bell, en
gineer. Tbe caboose of the standing
train was forced up against the last of
three oil tank cars in tbe train, with a ich
effect that tbe end was bulged in and the
petroleum poured for .h in a great streunx
Tbe explosive fluid by some means be
came ignited and blazed up in a flery
sheet, enveloping the task car and the
caboose. The fl imes leaped high and
tbe two filled tatiks coupled to
it were in danger. None of
me raiiroaa n en wou'd co near
them to break tbe coupling and rcli'Sie
them. Finally, however, A'd. August
Lindgien, of Moline, rushed between the
blazing car and tbe one next and pulled
the pin. The undamaged tanks vere
tbeieupon pulled away and what must
have proved a dire calamity had the Ore
attackel ths other tanks, waa averted
Tbe burning oil all escaped from the tank
and the car, together with the caboisa,
were completely burned away. Tbe
sheds and stables on both sides caught
tbe flimea, and in a little barn owned by
N:ls Anderson was a horse, harness and
phaeton. Mr. Andersoa rusbed Into tbe
burning barn and liberated his' horse,
and, strange to say, it bad the horse stnse
to dasb out ot the building, which, with
other contents, was destroyed. Thesieds
and stables of the Petl house were ('am
aged heavily, and tbe cornice on the rear
of the hotel was charred. In a houss on
tbe opposite side of the track, owned by
a man named Courtney, twentyone pains
of glass were cracked bv tbe heat.
Tbe loss all told, will amount in tbe
aggregate to f 5.000 to $8,000.

Kdltor A aar:
Joslih, Dec. 81. My attention bas
oeeo called to an extract from the Cnl
cago Herald, copied in yesterday's Asms,
criticising the position taken by tbe or
ganized farmers at their conference at
Rock Island. Dec. 24. The grist of tbe
criticism is that the farmers don't know a
good thing when they see it: that thev
don't know what they want, anyhow, and
that they can assign no good reasons tor
wanting wbat thev do want.
Tbe conference declared in favor of
free coinage of American sdver. 8ays
tne ueriua, "uo tbe farmers want an in
crease in the circulating medium f Cer
tainly, bv all means. So do the people
engaged in all other kinds of business
and industries, except that small nurabvr
who have a aurplna capital to loan. Leg
islation, looking towards such an ln
crease, is not. therefore, class legiilation,
but la in tbe direct interests of tbe peo
Then, says the Ilcrald, we have al
ready a law whereby tbe entire output of
tbe American silver mines is "in effect "
utilized as money, and this is a better
scheme than the onn the farmers advo
cate. (It niav not be in order to remark
that the Herald"! political friends voted
almost solid against this law while on ii s
passage in congress. Wby this change
ot front!) But take notice. The pres
ent law requires the treasury to purchase
so much silver bullion at market price,
below a fixed limit, and pay for it in cer
tificates baving all tbe functions of mon
ey. Verv good. But just now, and ac
cording to tbe Herald, for many years in
tbe future, enough ailver bullion to make
a standard silver dollar can be purchased
for about 70 cents. In other words, sil
ver bullion, sufficient to coin a thousand
standard dollars, is paid for with about
f700 worth of certificates. Therefore,
free coinage, the farmers plan, will in
crease tbe circulation provided for by the
present law about 40 per cent (these 0
ures are given as round numbers, not
claiming to be strictly accurate) . If an
increase Is desirable, as tbe Herald does
not venture to deny, the f armers' plan is
But again. The present law is manda
tory; free coinage may be optional. If
owners of silver bullion do not choose to
offer It for coinage, no increase of circu
lation can result. But under the present
law. if these owners of si vjr bullion do
not choose to offer it for sale at the
treasury, no purchases can be made, and
no certificates issued. Which is the great
er probability that a man will seek a mar
ket where be can realize 70 cents or one
where he can realize 100 cents for the
same product? Calm yourself on this
point, Mr. Herald .
Again, the product of American
minea may diminish. tben the
expansion of tbe circulation must dwindle
in tbe same ratio. In this neck of the
woods we have not access to all desirable
sources of information, but what we have
is to the effect that tbe output of tbe
American silver mines might be largely
increased did the price of the product
warrant it. Tbe present law offers no
inducements to tbe mine owners to in
crease th.'lr product; free coinage will
offer a very substantial one.
But, after all, exclaims tbe Herald in
triumph, farmers have no sliver bullion
to carry to the mint, wby should they be
interested in famishing the mine owners
a market lor their product at a fancy
price, and thus help to build up another
great monopoly 1 This question reaches
to the marrow of tbe controversy. But
notice first, the clause limiting free c in
age to American ailver was inserted to re
lieve tbe anti-silver men from tbe appre
hension they so of ten express that with
free coinage all tbe world' output of sil
ver will be dumped upon us, and in pay
ment for it drain us of a'd our other re-
courcea. Such an emergency we ran
guard against even if need be by a pro
Now the farmers' interest in free silver
is just excactiy this. and. by tbe way, tbe
farmers interest is no greater tban that

ana often do. combine so as to fix the sell
ing price of their products, and ibu
maintain their profits which the farmer
cannot do. Tbe price the farmer receives
for his products is not determined alto
gether by the law ot supply and demand.
but also, and more potentially by the
value ot the money be receives in ex
change. He may not know, or may not
realize that tbe dollar bi receives today
is ot different value from the one be re
reived 10 or 20 years ago. We are liable
to forget that tbe unit of value, called a
dollar, is so many grains of gold, of a
certain fineness, an that gold is a com'
mndity, like wheat, and fluctuates in val
ue according to tbe law of supply and
demand. This unit or value has been
unchanged for many years, while the
world's product of gold baa increased at
a much smaller ratio than has the world's
population wealth and business. Hence
the supply of gold is relatively smaller
while the demand for gold, and the uses
of it are relatively greater.Tneief ore, cold
being scarce, is appreciating in value, and
thus tbe farmer in exchanging wheat or
other product must furnish a larger
amount of product to obtain the same
number of dollars. Right here is tbe
cause of the shrinksge of values so no
ticeable all along the line.
Some one may say what's the difference
If the dollar the farmer gets for bis
wheat is worth more it will buy more.
and so he cornea out even. But he don't
come out even, for if there were
no trusts or combines to interfere, yet the
farmer neither fixes the price of what he
bas to sell, or of what he must buy. He
takes wbat is offered, and pays wbat is
asked. So, in the exchange, all costs of
transportation and handling, all profits of
trade and commerce, all risks and losses
are charged up to the faimer, and col
lected also, tor he can't help himself.
And these charges do not decrease with
the decline in the value of his product.
Besides the farmer does not want to spend
all bis earnings. He should lay by a per
centage of his receipts against a rainy
day, and this decline In the price of his
product is taken out of what should be
aurplus. Free silver coinage, and it a full
legal tender, comes in here to check this
advance in the value of money. It
means to the farmer better prices for his
products. This means to tbe laborer
more work and better wages. This means
increased activity in all dt dart men la of
trade and commerce, and this means in
dividual and national prosperity. If so
be it that the silver mine owners are ben
efitted and even made wealthy, yet tbe
greater good to the greater number, re
sulting therefrom, is ample justification.
We bave not apace to enlarge upon the
self-evident deduction from tbe forego ng
premises that an increase in tbe value of
money means a corresponding Increase in
the burden of every debt. Tbe federal
nmrntnym lbM mr '--r J " i
paring the obligation of contracts, yet
the existing money system is daily Increas
ing the obligation of every debtor . The
farmers want thia unjust tendency
checked right quick.
I am aware that international questions
come In which I do not assume to be
qualified to consider, but I undertake to
say that very little friction will occur if
we only keep the balance of trade in our
favor, and exact payment of that balance,
aa we may, in tbe world's money -gold. If
we cannot extend the sale of our products
abroad, we can, and should, curtail our
purchases of foreign goods. Thus wi h
a steady influx of coin to settle balence
of trade, even haughty England might
toon be glad to join with us in establish
ing wnat la conceded to be tbe great de
sideratum an international money union
recognizing m-metaiism on the present
American ratio of values.
