Editor World: As indicated in my communication last week, permit me space to exam ine the term "bimetalism" in the light of experience, as applied to money. The word is catching and a favorite among those who are wild seekers for voters. Seems to us, Mr. Editor, that they would hesitate to direct the hopes of our countrymen by promising them certain relief by the adoption of free coinage of silver at an arbitrary ratio, if they expect to secure enough voters thereby to win in this contest. For, if they suc ceed on the issue they wage, and fail to establish bimetalism, i. e., the in dependent, free and unlimited coin age of gold and silver at 16 to 1, and their concurrent circulation as money, how then will they meet those who they are deceiving. Bimetalic, "Webster says, means two metals, and when applied to money means a double standard of currency. Jefferson and Hamilton were true bi metalists, believing a double standard of values desirable, but those two patriots recognized, and by every act proved, that they knew a double stand ard could not be maintained unless equal value of metal was contained in the coin of each. Fortunately our coinage laws, 1790 to 1792, consulted the concensus of opinion of the whole world to determine the value of each. No Mr. Bryan jingoism In those two sincere patriots; no fiat in their action. These two great men, unlike Mr. Bryan and his associate patriots of this year, never once intimated that law made value, but the reverse is proved by every act of theirs. When they found the world's amount of sP ver necessary to make a dollar, tl.ev took 100 cents worth of that silyt r and stamped the value on it, likewise they did with gold took two equals and made a double. You can't, Mr. Editor, make a double out of two un equals! Puny mortals, like us, cannot see how that can be done. Mr. Bryan, and all populists, promise that they will do it, but sir. we do not believe them. Thos. Jefferson is the best example we have any account of in our coun try's history as a gold bug, for when he found his honest expectations that two equals of today, when Joined to gether, would abide equal, but tomor row the greater law of trade having dissipated that expectation he re tained the better metal and discarded the less valuable. This is proved in disputably by his action in 1806, when president, instead of indefinitely sus pending the coinage of gold, he sus pended the coinage of silver, a very slight difference having obtained in the value of these metals by the ratio adopted, is proof positive that the value of the coin was by him believed to be contained absolutely in the metal, and no part of it in the gov ernment stamp or fiat. Every Democrat should be able to testify and rejoice that he can inform his fellow men who did, and why they did, adopt the gold standard as our basic money. Thos. J efferson oracti callydiditin 1806. Jackson empha sized it in 1834, and Pierce, with Jas. Guthrie, of Louisville, Ky., as his secretary of the treasury, confirmed it in 1853. And every day since that time when this government was re deeming its obligations gold has been the base, and God forbid that Mr. Bryan, or any other man, be commis sioned by our countrymen to change that honest policy for our nation or our people. What egotistical assumption for Mr. Bryan and his followers to claim se cession from Jefferson, Jackson, Ben ton, Tilden. Hendricks and Cleveland. The above named are conceded to have been the best exponents of our political faith from the foundation of povernment by and for the people to the present day. With shame I contemplate Mr. Bryan ,and his faction repudiating and, with venomous invective, de nouncing President Cleveland. And the infamy of their action is intensi fied when they assume to do it in the great name of Democracy. So like the use of the livery of heaven to serve the devil in with reality, they attempt to Dernetrate fraud. Mr. Bryan only imitates the conduct or hatan when lie made the trip witn Christ to the mountain. Shocking to contemplate, Mr. Editor, men lost to every sense of honor attempting to use a name representing practical life to deceive the people into the belief that under that name a new and im practicable system will be evolved. A system promising the people that by legislation they will live, move ana have their being. Should they suc ceed in making the people believe their sophistries, ana be given author ity to perform the impossibilities promised, confusion worse con founded is the result. What then? So much promised, and aggravated distress the reward of misplaced con fidence. Who will be held to account then? Who can stay the vengeance of an outrageously deceived people? I plead with my countrymen be not deceived. Mr. Bryan and all of those who coach him, combined, cannot make something out of nothing; 'they cannot make one dollar out of 50 cent: they cannot compel you or my other person to exchange one aoi lar for 50 cents. All they can do is to desecrate your honor individually and collectively by tempting you to pay loo cents with 50 cents to the man who has placed confidence in you and allowed yo to owe him That, sirs, is the extent of service they can render you, if that can be termed a service. My mind revolts at the thought that my countrymen would prove victims or sucn a tempter. With voice and ballot let us be Christ-like, and say to them, "get ye behind me, you conspirators against my honor." Bimetalism is not what they expect silver monometalism is theirobiect. Will adduce proof in my next to sub stantiate this conclusion. S. S. Reynolds. G. O. Lang, the composer of the most popular song of the day. "In the Shadow of the Pines" has sent us a new song. "Say Tfot Good-bye. We predict for it a larger sale than "In the Shadow." It is simply beau tiful, easy to-play, melodious, and a perfect adaptation of exquisite words to a delightful melody. We recom mend our readers to send for a copy, The publishers, Legg Bros., 108 Wal nut street, Kansas City, Mo., are mat ing a special price of 25c per copy. To any of our readers who have not al ready "In the Shadow of the Pines," they will send one copy of each for 50 cents. The Democratic (?) speaker last Saturday said that the government is able and has always been able to keep gold and silver dollars at a parity. In less than one minute, in almost the next sentence, he declared that the silver dollar was worth 103 cents in 1873, thus flatly contradicting himself. His last statement is the true one but when one dollar is worth three cents more or less than another they are not at a parity. At that time no silver dollars were in circulation on account of this three cents premium although they were full legal tender and the mints freely open to any man who wished to have silver dollars coined. These free-silver orators never make a speech without contradicting themselves or one another. Judge Bucher. of Newton, addressed a fair-sized audience at the court house last Saturday afternoon, on waat one might call a political abuse instead of on the political issues of the day. The judge claims to be a democrat and said he had never fused in his life, and did not believe it was necessary until this year. With only two months' training in the popo-crat ranks the judge reminds us of a twin brother of "Windy Ben." His wind is like an everlasting spring of popu list water. His abuse was directed at Cleveland, Carlisle, Cockran, Plumb, Ingalls and last but not least the Hon. Thomas Tarpy, of Ogallah. In the course of his remarks he said that Senator Plumb made a speech several years since in the senate favoring the free coinage of silver and that he had read an article in the World written by some jack-leg out in the country, and that Plumb or the jack-leg lied. In discussing the labor question the judge made the assertion that our county clerk was drawing too. much salary.- We agree with him on that point as almost everybody admits that we have a $300 man drawing $1,000. The largest per cent, of the audience went to learn something about this 16 to 1 Question, but the judge's ar guments were so contradicting that even the free silverites said his speech' done more harm than good.

Saturday afternoon, October 3d, is the time designated to hold the town ship caucuses to elect delegates to the Republican County convention and, also to nominate the various township officers. Every Republican should at tend these caucuses. If "the stamp of tne government makes money" of a piece of metal, then to remove that stamp would de monetize it. We defy our free-silver friends to show when the government has ever thus demonetized a single standard silver dollar, except the stamp bad already been effaced by abrasion or mutilation, and then only for the purpose of recoining it. The Republican County Central committee met at the office of G. W. Cross, Saturday, September 19th, and called a convention to meet October 10th, for the purpose of placing in nomination candidates for the differ ent county offices, and recommends that the various township caucuses be held October 3d. The various town- snip committees will attend to the notices of township caucuses. Read the call published elsewhere. Owing to the. shifting . political j sands Candidate Robinson has been! forced to tell where he is at by way of another announcement in the Inde- pendent. His first appeal to free sil ver voters was too vague and Indefi nite and was made less than ten days after seeking the Republican nomina tion at the hands of sound money Re publicans whom he knew to be such. He then discovered that "Mr. Peacock will get the Republican nomination and concluded to try for the Populist nomination." It was doubtless then that he discovered the Republican party to be "dominated by the money powers of Europe and America, and to which he renounces allegiance "so long" as it continues so. . That is the "string" to his second announcement. The Populists may nominate him for lack of other timber, which does not concern us, but if it fails to do so he mav then discover it is to be "domi nated by the money powers" of China and Mexico. $7.55 Special Rate $7 55 Wa-Keeney to Denver and return for fall festival October 6th to JOth.
