This is the latest bait dropped to the wage-earner by those who favor the inflation of the currency. In this assertion the followers of Bryan concede a point they have hitherto denied, that is, that the silver money un der free coinage would be a "cheap money." Their first contention was that free coinage would raise silver to a parity with gold and that an unlimited issue would not debase our currency. The futility of maintaining such an argument has driven them to assert that they now offer the wage-earner cheap money liecause cheap money means higher wages. But the wage-earner will hardly he more deceived by this last diction than by the first. If he gets higher wages, it will l>e higher wages in the cheaper money and how lias he bettered his condition. The silver dollars under free coinage will lie dollars of bullion value. The Bryauites concede that when they concede that we will have cheap money. At the commercial ratio to-day each dollar of silver would he a fifty cent dollar. It would have the purchasing power ot fifty cents, no more, no less. What then is gained by higher Wages in cheaper money? Apply this illustration to labor. The workingman buys dollars with labor. Does he want a cheap dol lar, for which the merchant will give only ten pounds of sugar, or does he want a dollar, for which the merchant will give twenty pounds of sugar. Cheap dollars would cut his wages in half. What good would it do to get twice as many dollars for a day's work, if two dollars would hnv no more sugar, and no more of any thing else, than one dollar will buy? Besides, if prices go up un (,er fre< -' coinage, does not the workingman know that the first thing to go up will he rents, the net t thing will he food and cloth ing, and the last thing will he Lahor J The landlord can mark up hi-- rents and the merchant his goods without askinj. consent of anybody , but the la Got ing man cannot mark up his w tges with out consulting liis emj loyer. As a result prices of living will at once advance rapid y, but wages will advance slowly. Under free coin age, instead of being better off the laboring man will be worse off than he is now. Every honest man will concede that the present dol lar is a dollar of the highest pur chasing power ever known. 'It is too hard to get." says the cheap dollar advocates. Why? Because men are out of employ ment. There is no work for the wage-earner, no market for the farmer, no demand for the manu factured product. What is the remedy? Bryan says, ''open the mints, give- us a cheap dollar, one easier to get." McKinley says, •Open the mills of the corn-try. Give the wage-earner wages in this liest dollar ever known. If the wage-earner is busy he is a con sumer of the farmer's product and of the manufacturer's goods. He will wear clothes where he is now in rags. He will eat where he now is hungry. Opening the mints will not create a demand for labor. A cheap dollar is as hard to earn as a good dollar when there is no in dustry in the land." Here are the two propositions. The farmers and wage-earners in Maine have decided which to take and all over the Union others are as ready and as uniform in sentiment. "( Ipposition to women's suffrage based on domestic reasons proceeds from the notion that legislation reg ulates life, whereas the truth is that life determines legislation. Life, mobile and restless, moving always toward its divine source, progresses from plane to plane, and finally what the minority have long thought and practiced the ma jority formulate into law by the process called legislation. As a rule, legislation has only con firmed custom. not inaugurated it. Public sentiment is now in advance of our laws, particularly as to schemes of punishment, philan thropy, social morals and domestic relations. One need not resort to antiquity to find a period when leg islation was practically restricted to levying taxes, voting subsidies for the support of aggressive wars, and enumerating the crimes which should he punishable by death. Later, it concerned itself with poor laws, and with the building and managing of prisons and work houses. Following these, at vary ing intervals, hospitals, asylums, schools, colleges, reformatories, institutions for technical instruc tion, libraries, galleries, museums, and kindergartens presented them selves as subjects of legislation. Our own generation has added to these a score of subjects which are the fruit of the relatively new doc trine, "I am my Brother's Keeper." Women to-day are crippled in the performance of purely domestic duties by their exclusion from di rect participation in legislation; crippled exactly as miners, weav ers, machinests. farmers, lumber men. and merchants of the male sex would he were these classes distranehised.'*—May W. Sewell. While Brvan is swinging around the circle entertaining crowds of curiosity seekers with his oratory of hysteria, McKinley is receiving at nis home daily crowds of farm ers, mechanics, wage-earners and business men, who seek to honor him. There has never been a more striking example in our pol itics ot the man seeking the office and the office seeking the man. From recent developments, it seems that the Idaho popocrats have no use for Senator Dubois. The Idaho senior senator's politi cal grave has been open .or several months, but his egotism will pro bably carry him through the agony of the campaign before he accepts the inevetable. Mr. Bryan in his letter of ac ceptance says that it is not neces sary to discuss the tariff at this time. From Mr. Bryan s point of view and with the utter failure of his party policy so prominently before the people, it is not to he wondered why he lias no desire to discuss the tariff Mr. Bryan's zeal for free silver and his desire to see in it the only issue, is back ed by a desire to cover up his record and the record of Ins party on the tariff question. He asks the voter to forget the democratic tariff blunder which is responsible for this depression in prices and wages and consider some lurid rhetoric about crosses of gold and crowns of thorns. But while Mr. Bryan may wish L> evade the tariff issue the people do not and the voters will attest in November the fact that they have remembered the tariff tinkering of the demo cratic party aim have decided to re turn to protection and prosperity. Attorney General Harmon has seen fit to criticise -Candidate Bryan on his utterances regarding ''federal interference." It is a sad and alarming condition when the Courts, in order to dispel unsound and dangerous theories of govern ment advanced by a presidential candidate, are compelled to practi cally enter the field of political debate. Elsewheie in this issue of the Teller is published the three proposed amendments to the state Constitution, to he voted upon at the November election. Every voter must express himself on these questions by ballot, and it is every voter's duty to read and study them. I'ropogid Constitutional Amendments. St NATE JOIN 1 RESOLUT • >N NUMBER TWO.
