Oov. Tillman's "great speech" at
the Louisville convention was we
havo no doubt very interesting to
listen to as It Is to read, but he neg
lected to explain how freo silver
can help the f irmer*. He offered
nothing in evidence to show that
free coinage would swoll the vol
ume of the currency or that a gold
standard would decrease it. There
is not one word in his speech to
convince a reasoning m in that the
cry for free sliver has a basis in
common sense. It Is easy to say
that mono-tnetnltom would oppress
the debtor class and contract tho
currency but the O >vornor does
not toll how or why. Nor cm he.
Govoruor Tiltman deserves very
high praise, howover, for the forci
ble presentation which ho mado to
the Westerners of the Southern
side of tho negro question so far as
it relates to politics. In that por
tion of his address he spoke with
the undaunted candor of a man
and did his state credit.
And grant that it does come to
a party struggle between a single
gold standard and bimetallism,?
unless tho parity of sil vor and gold
can bo guaranteed by international
agreement aud a means bo pro
vidod to protect the cheaper coin
from possible depreciation, the Ad
vertiser is for gold. We doubt
the possible existenco of anything
othor than gold that will ever again
pass ns money between nations and
a metallic dollar that will buy less
than a hundred cents anywhere
on the globe is worse than no dollar
