TO THE "INDEPENDENT " MAN.
A recent issue of this paper pub
published an extract from the Omaha
World-Herald, the copy for which was
furnished by me. The Independent
man thinks this was by a "concerted
action" on the part of Republican pa
pers. My part in connection with
t his article had nothing to do with its
publication elsewhere. I saw the ar
ticle quoted in print several months
ago, and if the editor of the Inde
pendent would read a few good Re
publican newspapers lie would not be
so far behind the times in news. After
the article first came out and became
general public news, Congressman
KirWpatrick wrote a personal letter
to the World-Herald calling the atten
tion of the managing editor of
that paper to the sentiment ex
pressed in the clipping alluded to,
asking if Mr. Bryan concurred in that
kind of sentiment, etc. Ko reply has
been received to that query up to this
date. The World-IIerald knows full
well that the statement is being used
as showing Mr. liryan's attitude to
ward the- old soldier. It makes no
difference whether Mr. Bryan was
editor of the paper at the time the
arliele appeared or not. He soon
afterward became its editor, knowing
full well the course the paper had pur
sued on the pension question. He
gave the paper no change of heart on
that question, and his own record in
congress and out of it is not sue!) as
to justify the belief that he is the
soldier's friend. I did not say that he
wrote the article, but expressed the
belief that he concurred in the senti
ments: and I think the history of the
paper before and since Mr. Bryan be
came its editor fully warrants the
Kow, a word as to the statement in
last week's Independent relative to
Mr. Burton's statement of 150 changes
in France's ratio. The Encyclopedia
liritannica is quoted correctly and
learnedly. Probably far more so than
Mr. liurton's statement. What Mr.
Burton probably said was that France
had changed her monetary laws 150
times trying to maintain a double
standard with gold and silver, and
each at a parity. Mr. Burton is right
and the Independent is wrong. "ot
only has France changed herown laws
many times trying to keep gold and
silver in circulation, but several con
ventions or the states composing the
Latin union, of which France is one.
have been held looking to the same
thing. France adopted the gold staa
dard in 1S73, and I have authority for
the statement that during the 70
years prior to that date tue French
parliament changed the coinage laws
113 times. If there is proof to the
contrary, please cite it, and I will be
very glad indeed to correct myself
and the readers of the AYorld, and
pay the editor of the Independent a
liberal compensation for his time and
trouble in fnrnishing me authoritive
information. - The money question is
one which ought not to be a partisan
matter. It affects the business inter
ests of all alike, whether he be rich
or poor, and I have no desire to seo it
settled in any other than a fair way
one which will work injustice to uo
I one. It cannot be done by misqiiot
l ins? facts or by ijriMriiiir the experience
! and teacliiinfs of other nations and of
history. For that reason the exieri
j enee of France, is valuable. The only
' way that France maintain her lare
silver circulation is bv having a inuch
larger gold circulation. That is the
only method of retaining silver in cir
culation in any country under the
present bullion values of goUi and sil
ver, unless we adopt a silver standard,
which "means that we will drive the
K-oid out of circulation. I have never
knowingly presented an untrue state
ment of fact in this paper for the pur
pose, of coloring the white truth or of
misleading anyone. A. 1. Crooks.
A TEW CONTJNDBUMS.
To the Editor of the Independent in particu
lar, or any free-silver advocate:
1. Why is every free-coinage coun
try in the world on a silver standard ?
Why do the silver-standard coun
tries not use gold along with silver as
3. Whv does everv gold-standard
country in the world not only have
silver in circulation along with its
gold, but has more silver money, as a
rule, than the silver standard coun
4. Whv is there not a free-coinage
country in the world that has one-
third or the per caoita circulation
that the United States tias to-day?
5. Whv would it not be better for
the United States to maintain the
gold standard and thereby maintain
three kinds of money: gold, silver and
paper, than to adopt free coinage and
the silver standard and drive gold out
of circulation, as has been done in
every free-coinage country in the
ti. If an error of a small percent,
in the ratio kept gold out of circul.i-
tion from 17!2 until 1837. and then
another small error kept silver out of
circulation from 1837 to 1853 under
free coinage, would not an error of
nearly 50 per cent, keep gold out of
circulation now if we had free coin
If vou undertake to answer the
above questions, please be specific
name countries, give amounts or vari
ous kinds of money in circulation, and
state that Russia, which is nominally
a silver-standard country, is prepar
ing tor the gold standard, which ac
counts for the large stock of gold on
nana in mat country. ,
Don't Care for tJie Soldier Vote.
If all reports are true Mr. Napoleon
Bonaparte McCormick. the l'opocrat
nominee for congress in the Sixth
district, has got himself into those
troubles which always dogs the foot
steps of a falsifier and humbug. It is
charged that Mr. McCormick has been
representing himself as an old soldier.
Wlien questioned as to the regiment
he served in. he replied that it was
the Twenty-seventh Pennsylvania
cavalry, but "when his attention was
called to the fact that Pennsylvania
had no such regiment he amended to
the Thirteenth cavalry. Some of the
old soldiers set an inquiry on foot and
soon leared from the adjutant general
of Pennsylvania that no such person
as 2s. 11. McCormick had ever be
longed to the Thirteenth cavalry.
Armed with this information the edi
tor of the Cawker City Republican
sought out Mr. McCormick and asked
him for a statement. The only reply
the editor could secure was: "I am
not legging for the soldier vote this
year. ' t he editor called Mr. McCor
mick s attention to the fact that the
charge had been made specifically and
authoritatively that he was masquer
ading as an old soldier, and suggested
to him that some explanation was
certainly due on his own behalf. To
this the accused simply responded
again: "I am not begging the old sol
dier vote this year." It is related
that as a sequel to this interview one
of the Grand Army Posts in the Sixth
district has set on foot an investiga
tion of whether McCormick has ever
worn a Grand Army badge. There is
law in Kansas inflicting a severe pen
alty upon people who wear badges of
an order to which they do not belong,
and it proposed to call Mr. McCor
mick to account under it if he is
guilty. Kansas City Journal.
The Independent last week raised
the same old cry "the plutocrats are
buying our voters!" Would resents
any and all such imputation upon the
character of the honest voters of the
Populist parties. We believe the
great mass of our political opponents
are honest, but like such voters in all
parties they are open to conviction.
That they are being convinced of the
insincerity of Popocratic leaders is
becoming more and more apparent
every day. Certain it is that no
"bureau of correspondence" is neces
sary for their purchase and none lias
been organized. The cowardly insin
uation of the Independent is"a mud
