That May Low Him His Hair A
Couple r Tariff Fit-form Speeches De
livered. Kansas City. April 16 The subjects
discussed at the commercial congress yes
terday were numerous and important. J.
F. Skiff, of Denver, said that the elements
o population and raw material in ona
section wanted a trading treaty with the
same elements in another section, and
that the United Statts couli sustain a
population of 50O,OCO,OOJ. P. P. Elder, ex
speaker of the Kau-as house of represent
atives, lemarked iu the coursa of a speech
that the wives and daughters of farmers
were getting too higbSown and too much
in love with finery, but tha gigantic evils
were the boards of tra le, bucket shops,
trusts ami combiues. He wanted reci
procity enough to go round.
Stewart of XfvaiU on Currency.
A letter was read from Senator Stew
art, of Nevada, which was devoted to tha
money question. He wrote that it was
time for the west aud south to "resist the
absorbing avarice of the gold contrac
tiouUts of the oiumerciai center of
Europe and r!i-' United States." For the
pa9t tweaty-live years every administra
tion has recon:z?d t lie banking fratern

vising on financial subj-.'cis. The produc
ing class?s had been ignored and their
rights disregarded Silver had been de
monetized and there had been no mate
rial increase in the volume of gold coin in
the coiumeri'ia. world.
The Gold Oligarchy.

A l'l.i for Tree Coinage.
He advocated the tree coinage of .silver
and making it a le'j;al tender, au 1 said tha
coined silver of Europe was a legal tender
on a par witu told at a premium of aboa:
3li per cent, alujve our standard dollar.
The suggestion that under free coinage
the sliver com of any country would find
a market m the L nited States and suffer a
discount of l'.xuii 3'-j percent, in European
silver to T par cent, on Indian silver was
absurd. Besides, no country has mora
coined silver than it absolutely needs.
Free coinage would not furnish too much
money. Other measures might be neces
sary to supply a circulating medium, but
free coinage was tii tirst and mos; impor
tant step ia the emancipation of the

the ca-e of two stanlarls of weight

and troy, whi.-ii contains oaiy o.,o)

pound weight he would be a knave; if hj
weigned out silver or gold bullion to ful
fill a coutrart of sale with an avoirdupois
pouc i weight he would be .1 fool.
Two liases Are Dishonest.
What terms shall we apply to those
who, having contracted to pay money on
a goia oasis, oner to luinii their contracts
on a silver basis? Who will trust them a
second time? The difference ia value-be

the last two or three years has been al
most the same as the difference ia weight
between th avcrdupois pounJ" and the
Mr Atkinson argued at length iu favor
of the goid standard.
Free nin::;e a Forced Loan.
Regrdiug !r-e coinage he said: "The
propo-al to pen tae mints of the United
States i., tii f.e coinage of silver dollars
of full legal ten Jer, under our present
Rtatutes.fi, but a proposal to collect a
lorcei: loan ironj me property, tue pro
duct, tue wages ami the earnings of the
people r.f rhU c r.ntry for the benefit and
support of the petty industry of mining
and smeiting silver ore, a product o;
which t lie annual value is less than half
of that of tLe hens' eggs which we get
every year from our barnyards.
The M ay .to Make It Safe.
"That proposal is dead. Let us now
bury it by opening the mints to the free
coinage of gold or silver dollars; but let
ns make this practice safe by so amending
this act of legal tender that no man can
force a silver dollar upon a farmer, a me
chanic, a tradesman, ora creditor who has
a right to expect to be paid.in dollars
made of gold or in the lawful unit of value
tt the United States. There is no danger
in coining as many dollars of silver or of
gold as people want who may bring their
bullion to the mint to be coined. The
t rue and only danger is in the abuse, of
"rual under an act of legal tender."
A large number of resolutions were in
troduced. . One recommends a canal from
-he lakes to the Atlantic; another wants
i gold and silver universal coinage; an
ther asks sufficient ' appropriations for
ibe interior waterways, and other deal
'vith the tariff, money, and railways.
Then Hon. Charles Crisp, of Georgia,

tariff .reform, and ex-Gov. Gear, of Iowa,
