THE SILVER DOLLAR.

I wanted the gentleman
Mr. Mcltao-Uut the gcntlomnn
must not confuse circulation with
the standard or measure of value.
To Illustrate, If the demand for gold
In some other country for some spcclnl
purpose Increases Its value or makes
It scarce here, there will at once be
n demand foi sliver to meet the scarc
ity occasioned by the withdrawal of
gold, and for the featnc reason the
nluo of silver will be Increased, so
that one may circulate today and the
other tomoi row. At any given mom
ent the standard actually used In any
particular country may be one or the
other and not both; hut If tho right
to ubo cither Issccurolt will tend to
make cacli metal chango less than It
Mr. Catchlngs Then my frlaud,
under that dcllnttion, would consider
Mexico a bimetallic country, and alio
lms the same privilege.
Mr. Hrntnni Docs Mexico coin any
gold at all?
Mr. MoRao Certainly not. She
lias silver monometallism, nob bimet
allism. I am as much opposed to
the stnglo silver standard as I am to
tho single gold standard.
Silver Is historic, constitutional,
Democratic money. Since thoorganl
zatlon of human government gold and
silver have both been used nb money.
When tho United States secured their
Independence tdlvor was In use as
standard money In tho mother coun
try as well as In tho colonics. It was
distinctly recognized by tho Constitu
tion, and from the foundation of the
govcrnincnj, following a policy In
dorsed by Jefferson and defended by
Jackson, tho Democratic party lias
beon tho party of bimetallism, favor
lug tho coinage of both gold and nil
splracy to check tho progress, hoclal
development, and Christian senti
ment of a government now tho van
guard ofblvlllratlou-a government
whoso mission It Is to lead, not to
It Is common for those who take
tho opposite side of this question to
toll us that gold and civilization, and
silver and barbarism, go together. I
ask, Mr. Chairman, when did Franco
and Oenuany reach their highest
state of civilization? Was it not bo
forothey went to gold monometallism?
When did our own beloved country
show the greatest growth In popu
lation and prosperity among tho far
luers and other producers?
It was under tho free-col nago act of
1837. hi 18(50 tho fanner of our
country owned more than one-half the
wealth of the United States; now they
own less tluuiJM per cent of It. It
was not until Franco, Oormany, Eng
land and the United States adopted
the gold standunl that they wcro
mulcted with mhJiiI discord and labor
Tako tho gold-ulug countries as n
whole, and they have national dobu
aggregating WO pur capita, whllo that
of the silver-using countries Is only W
pjr capita. Fngland has been referred
to a a great creditor nation. In tho
ainwj that tho coriwratlons of this
and other countries owe her people,
'iJ Auditor nation, but let us ut
f irgM that tho government of Great
Britain . owe 13,600,000,000, which Is
n.'jouUDOpojr capita for each subject.
Other European countries nro not In
as good condition.

Europe had Increased from $2,000,000,
000 to 22,000,000,000 within the past
century. England Ikih paid only about
$500,000,000 of her national ocut our-
Ing the last llfly yearn. Yet this is
the progress and civilization held up
as an example for the United States.
At the rate we are helling bonds we
may come to It; uut'nttlils time, with
more people and more wealth, we owe
only about one-fourth of what Great
Britain does, to say nothing about her
dependencies, for the most important
of which she enforces the silver
standard. If you want a great
national debt, continue the single
gold standard, but if you want a freer
cotnmcrco, an Independent and happy
people freed from debt, n government
resting upon manhood with equal
rights to nil and Bpeelal privileges to
nope, give us the bimetallism estab
lished by the fathers of the republic.
For one, I do not believe that a
national debt Is a hlcsslng, and I
deny that our government or people
can advance civilization by getting In
I trust the time will soon come
our public and private debts
will be paid. Debts are the greatest
troubles to our people, nnd with the
rising value of gold they cling to them question is that the fifty-third con

Mr. Catchlngs Why not to the fact
that tho resumption of specie pay

Mr. Mcltae I say that tho resump

without the use of slher was Impos
sible. Mr. Boatner-Then the gontlcman
admits, that the Illand dollar does not
rest on the sime basis as paper money,
hut Is money or tlual redemption?
Mr. Mcltue- There Is a nst differ
ence between the silver dollar and
paper money. Notwithstanding the
standard slher dollar has been de
nounced and boycotted by tho treas
ury onlclals and the most of the bank
ers since the piinsaga of the Bland act,
It Is today as good as gold here or
elsew here, less t rmmportat Ion charges.
No man, can bo found who over lost a
ver as standard, moucy, For tho last
fifteen or twoutjf jears we hao had
three distinct llnunnlal alleles pre
sented to tho country by the lenders
of as many different political parties:
1. The single gold standard with the
national-bank notes for currency,
which has leon and Is yet supported
by a majority of tho Republicans.
Asa general thing, Republicans are
opposed to silver, but I do not say
all Republicans, for there are soma In
the South and West who fuor it.

JUL., a ,5?
T.he old1 safesnd tpurid bimetal
lic doctrine of gold and sliver as the
basis, and such an amount of paper
money as can be kept at par with
coin has been maintained by a large
majority of tho Dcruocratlci'lenders
und voters, and In my opinion this Is
what a majority of the people desire.
The present executive has been
twlco elected as a Democrat, the first
time In 1881, on a platform 'declaring
for "honest money, thegold and silver
coinage of the constitution, and a cir
culating medium convertible Into
such money without loss," the last
time In 189J, when the party was
committed to the use of both gold
andslhcras the standard money of
the country; and to the coinage of
both gold and silver withoutdlKcrlml-
natlng against either metal or charge
for mintage etc.; and the only time
that he was cut defeated before the
people was In J888 when his party
made nodlstlnctdcclarution upon the
coinage Question, and the same year
the Republican party declared for the
use of both gold and silver ns money
and condemned the policy of his ad
ministration In Its efforts to demone
In every Democratic congress ex
cept one fcjnrc the passage of the net
of 1873 a majority of the Demo
cratic representatives and senators
have endeavored to right the great
wrong perpetrated by that law. Our
party Is not responsible for bringing
this country to a single gold standard.
All that can be truthfully said
against tho record of our paity on this
to restore silver oolnage. This polltl-
lleves In It.
I do not believe that any president
of tho United States will ever pre
side during the life of any of us who
li elected upon a platform declaring
distinctly against silver. The Rcpuh-
.lleans of the house may do like the
last congress, and defeat this amend
ment, but the people, mark my pre
diction, will rebuke them for It ns
they rebuked tho Democratic party.
Mr. Catchlngs Docs my friend
think that any man could bo elected
president on any platform that de
clares for tho freo coinage of sliver at
ratio of 10 to 1 without the coopera
tion of other countries. ?
Mr. McRac Yes; I believe with all
my heart and soul that If the Demo
cratic party, when it meets In con
vention at Chicago in July, declares
for the free, unlimited, Independent
coinage of silver at a ratio of 10 to 1
it will carry two-thirds of the states
of the Union, and give the Republi
can party, If it adopts a single gold
standard platform, bucIi a defeat as It
never gave it before. Applause.
No Domocrat who lovea tho prin
ciples of his party ought to refuse
a hearty support to Itanomlnees-what-ever
may be our differences on tho
coinage question, for we can accom
plish nothing without organization.
It may bo necessary to reform the
party before It can reform tho coinage
aud currency laws. But let us swear
by the sacred memories of the found
ers of Democracy and that faith due
the people that wo will tread no
backward stops upon these qnestlons.
The day of slated candidates Is over.
Uut in these days all .orts of ruses are
resorted to by politicians, and all fair-
minded men should be on their guard
against attacks aud slanders on any
Republican. Only small men work by
thoso means; but small men, ire opt to
