A man who signs his name W.
C. Paris, and who claims to have
been connected with the Bimetal
lic league, writes the Chicago
Post that W. J. Bryan received
$(*,000 a year from the league,
his salary being paid monthly,
and the checks passing through
a Lincoln, Neb., bank. Bryan
denies the charge, however.
Chicago Inter Ocean: Harold
M. Sewall attended the Madison
Square Garden meeting where his
father was formally notified of his
nomination for Vice President,
and then went back to his home
in Maine to speak against the
Democratic ticket and in favor of
the election of McKinley and Ho
bart. Mr. Sewall, Jr., made a
speech Friday night and said he
had been a Democrat until two
years ago, when lie left the partv
because of its assaults tipoti the
industries.of the country. He be
lieved in a protective tariff and
proposed to work for the chain
ion of protection. "I shall attack
the Democratic platform," said
Mr. Sewall, "in every line and
letter. I know it, and we know
it, to be absolutely opposed to the
most cherished principles of the
Republican party, as well as to
the traditions of the Democratic
party, and in opposition to and
subversive of the principles on
which tliis government must live."
The Democratic candidate for
Vice President will have to make
a better speech than that he de
livered in Madison Square Garden
if he expects to answer the objec
tions of his own son to his. elec
tion to the Vice Presidency.
The democratic part)7 always
refers with pride to Jefferson and
his acts, and who can blame
them but they should at least be
consistent, and not censure others
for performing like acts. In 1806,
by a pre-emptory order as presi
dent he caused the suspension of
the coinage of silver dollars and
none were coined for over thirty
years.
Twin British i'olk'U's: Froo Trades and

St. Paul Pionsei Press: Mr. Bryan
in his oratorical oxenrsion eastward is
marking out the. lines, or rather
IKS
is
following out the linos already marked
out hy the free silver propaganda, on
his campaign is to be conducted,
ft, is to he
a
0p p0p(1|.u.
campaign of pure dema-
gogism—addressed to various phases
ignorance, prejudice and
passion, and not at
all
to the reason
and intelligence of the people. At
Chicago his appeal was to the assumed
prejudices of the laboring men against,
those who employ them. At Pittsburg
I his appeal was to to the popular preju
dice against. England on the false pre
tense that England favors a gold stand
ard in this count ry.
We propose now to take up thisspur
ious campaign cry of the silver propa
ganda that the American sound money
policy is dictated or inspired by Eng
land and to show that it is not only
false but the exact reverse of the
truth.
Mr. Bryan averred in substance that,
those who were opposed to the free
and unlimited coinage of silver hy this
country alone were in the position of
the lories who in "the struggle of our
forefathers for liberty believed that
\ye ought to continue in this land the
political supremacy of Great Bi'itian,"
and that they favored ''the financial
domination of this country by a foreign
power, which was as dangerous to the
liberties of the people as political dom
ination." There is no mistaking the
meaning of this language. He meant
it to be understood that the policy
which for fifty years hits prevailed in
this country of haying our currency
based on the gold standard, so that out
people should have as good money its
the people of England or of any other
nation in the world, was inspired and
dictated by England. This is his as
sumption and that is the campaign cry
by which he expects to arouse the pat
riotism of the American people to the
support of the free coinage policy of
the silver Icings We propose to show
not only the absolute falsity but the
hollow hypocrisy of this pretense.
Wo desire in the first place to call
attention to the fact that Mr. Bryan is
one of the most rabid free ttaders.
His speeches in congress on this sub
ject show that he is an extreme and un
compromising advocate of that free
trade policy which would sweep away
all tariff restrictions against, the im
portation of British manufactures and
surrender our markets to their unre
stricted control. He is the strenuous
advocate of a policy which would sub
ordinate American to British interests,
shut up our mills and factories for the
benefit of British capitalists, or force
a reduction of the wages of our work
ingmen to the British level in order to
keep them going. This zealous cham
pion of the commercial and industrial
domination of the United States by
Great Britain through free trade now
comes before the American people and
tells them that in advocating free sil
ver he is fighting against the financial
domination of England.
It is a false and hypocritical pre
tense. In adyocating free silver he is
fighting for the financial doinintion of
England, just an in advocating free
trade ha is fighting for.its commercial
and industrial domination of this coun
try. ^Hat interest has England in
the inaintainance of a sound monetary
system in this country? She is the
money changer of the world. And she
levies her tribute of exchange on all
the nations that do business at hor
counter whose nlcitiey is not at par with
lier own. The countries doing businef-s
with her on a'gGld basis pay her no
tribute in exchanging bad money for
good. The silver countries areobliged
to pay her a heavy discount in the con
version of their liuctuating siiycr into
gold.
The United States is one of her chief
competitors in the markets of the
world. Upon the gold basis we com
pete on equal terms with hor *o far as
the currency is concerned in which
our business transactions are effected.
Crippled by a depreciated and liuctu
ating silver currency, which must, al
ways he convened into gold at a large
loss in each and all our inturnaltftnal
trade transactions, we should be in an
immense disadvantage with her in the
race for commercial supremacy. Why,
then, should England desire that o'ur
money should be its good as hers in the
markets of the world? Why should
Rutland desire that the United States
snould maintain the money standard of
of the commerce and civilization of the
world?
She does noL desire it. What she
does desire above till things is that the
United States should take that fatal
plunge to a silver basis, which for de
cades to come would drag us far
towards the level of Mexico as a com
mercial power, and remove from her
path her most dreadful rival in the
competition of the world's commerce.
We affirm upon the authoritive
warrant, of the facts of history that the
policy and the interests of Great Brit
ain, as understood by her statesmen and
Lhe representives of her financial inter
ests, are now and ill ways have been op
posed to the adoption of tne gold
standard by any other eounti'y than
their own. Do you want the proof of
it? We need go no farther, for that
proof than her treatment of the silver
question in India. Until 1852 gold and
'silver coins of unequal values circulat
ed in India, but the currency was sub
ject to such capricious IIactuation in
the relative value of the two metals
and is in such a stale of disorder and
confusion that in that year Lord Dal
housie, the governor general, demone
tized gold, and silver became the sole
currency of the country. The con
tinued declinc of silver for the last
twenty-five years has been so disas
trous to India, and especially to the
natives, that those who represented
its interests have for many years been
making a strenuous attempt to induce
the British government to deliver it
from the unbearable evils which allliet
the land, by putting its currency upon
a gold basis. This the British govern
ment has steadfastly refused to do, al
though hundreds of millions of her sub
jects were suffering from her refusal to
doit. All she would consent to do
was to stop the free coinage of silver in
India. But she would not move a step
farther in the direction of a gold stand
ard. Why not? The answer to that
question is the complete and over
whelmihg answer of history to Mr.
Bryan's demagogic speech at Pittsburg.
Mr. William Douglas, the ^author of
an important work on "Th^ Currency
of India," regarded as a very high au
thority, explains the reasons. \vhy. This
is his explanation:
All these attempts to give
"India a whole anil

steadfastly overruled
by the authorities at home. The home govern
ment has been in the habit of passing on the
Indian proposals to the consideration' of com
mittees, consisting of irresposiblo- theorize™,
or men under London monetary ov stock ex
change influence. The tixed idea of the latter
is THAT THE UNIT

found. ho\ve\er. the tinaneial statesmen of both
countries keenly alive to what the best interests
of the people demanded, and by no means to .»e
cajoled into thinking that what was good for
the United Kingdom should not also be good
for then. Hut although the London
"octopi'' were unable to stop the action of
Franc and Germany in the right direction, most
unfortunately India has been withtn
llieir power and influence. Up till now they
have prevailed in maintaining a state of things
in which gold is held to be the right standard
for ourselves, but the discarded and depreciated
silver of the rest of the world good enough for
our great dependency.
This pregnant testimony of an En
lishman, thoroughly familiar with the
subject, is only one of many proofs that
it has always been.and is now the stan
dard policy of England to prevent the
adoption of the gold standard by any
other nation than herself that her pol
icy and her interests have always been
and are now opposed, both to the pro
tection and sound 'tioney policy of the
Republican party, and that' her policy
and her interests are faithfully repre

Through free trade Mr. Bryan and

trying to subjugate this

Bryan has, the colossal impudence to
