ENLISTED FOR'THE WAR.
The Helena Silver Club Organized at Electric Hall Last Night Demonetization of the White Metal Denounced as a Great Wrong. Resolutions Pledging Support to Only Those Who Are the Friends of Silver. On the platform at the Silver club meet Ing last night were ex-Gov. Hauser. H. M. Parehen, first vice-president, A. J, Steele, treasurer, and It. B. Smit)i, secretary. Ex Gov. Hauser in assuming his office as pres ident of the club thanked the members for the honor they had conferred upon him, and said that no one was more heartily in sympathy with the objects of the organiza tion than he. He believed in the free and unlimited coinage of silver; restoring it to the position which the constitution gave it. The press of the country and the friends of the white metal in congress had clearly dem onstrated that the not demonetising sil ver was a great wrong, and that the people of the country, save the gold bugs whom it had enriched, knew it was a great wrong. It was an outrageous act, in his opinion, which at the expense of the many had en riched a few. The friends of silver had shown that with its depreciation had come a depreciation of farm products. Both wheat and cotton had fal len in corresponding ratio, and cotton had lowered more than ever before and wheat would be in the same position but for the Russian famine. He believed that if the war on silver continued it would result in the absolute depopula tion of the state. Democrats and republi cans and those of all shades of political faith demanded the restoration of silver to its constitutional basis. The time had come to nresent a united front. The ex governor said he had been a democrat all his life but he would vote for a free coinage man. "We must protect ourselves. I am with you for the war." The president's re marks were frequently interrupted with I applause. In the absence of A. M. Holter, chairman of the committee on resolutions. Secretary Smith read the report of the committee as follows: The name of this organization shall be the Helena Silver club. Our motto, "Equal rights for gold and silver, and flee coinage for both." Our object, to use every legitimate means to secure the free coinage of silver. Whereas, We recognize the free coinage of silver as being one of the most impor tant questions now before the country; an issue fraught with vast good to millions of I people, and a question of direct and vital interest to the great majority of the citi sens of the United States; and Whereas. We believe that the two great I political parties with which most of us are affiliated, have not given due attention to the vital impor tance of this question, the time has some when every voter should rise to the dignity of an American citizen and assert his independence of any political party, un- t less that party shall at once take measures 1 and seek by proper laws the free coinage of silver; and Whereas, We recognize the fact that every wealth-producer in the union, be he employer or wage-earner, has a direct and deen interest in the question of the free coinage of silver; and "Whereas, We are convinced that the free coinage of silver would be legislation assuring the greatest good to the greatest number of our people, and calculated to re store to us a constitutional currency which was wrongfully wrested from us by the money power incontrol of legislation in the Unite'd States: therefore be it "Resolved, That in our opinion the pub- J lie welfare is of vastly greater importance than party success. Believing thus, be it H "Resolved, That as individual republi- 1 cans or democrats, we vWill use all honor able means to secure delegations to the Minneapolis and Chicago national conven- i tions favorable to the free coinage of silver, and who will endeavor by all fair means to T cause the adoption by seach conventions of E a plank in their respective platforms, pledging the party and its candidates to lend their power to enact a law for the free coinage of silver. "Resolved, That each individual mem ber of this club unequivocally pledges him- I sels that until this question is settled he will favor no candidate for any legislative or political office who does not heartily favor the free coinage of silver. "Resolved, That we respectively, but earnestly ask the enactment by the national congress at its present session of some measure for the free coinage of silver. a Resolved, That we thoroughly appreciate I and cordially endorse the splendid work thas t has been and is still being done in this behalf at the national capital by those members of congress who favor the free and un limited coinage of silver. "Resolved, 'lhat we cordially and earn estly invite the active co-operation of the friends of silver in every voting precinct in a the union; organization means success. a "Resolved, That these preambles and resolutions shall be the constitution of this a club. A. M. HOLTmR. Chairman, RoOT. B. Sx'rrn, JoHn S. HAnarlts JAs. A. M.ACKNIour, John H. 1.nocen, ii Committee. C There was some little discussion and sev- E eral amendments offered. A. i. Douglass wanted the resolutions to declare that the members would not support any man un less he is for the free coinage of silver. This was supported by John Shober, who made a rattling good silver speech. Geo. I B. Foote called attention to the Colorado resolutions, which are in effect similar to Douglass' proposed amendment. Gen. t Harris, of the resolutions comimiittee, ex plained that the committee had cnsidered the Colorado resolutions and thought they had preserved their spirit and strength in the resolution, presented to the club. 4. A. MacKiiight said it was the belief of thb committee that by retaining the words "democrata or republicans" it would have t some influence on the Minneapolis and Chi cago conventions as showing the sentiment of the members of both parties in Mon tana. The resolutions were unanimonely adopted. Then J. 1). Caldwell sent up an amendment to include mermbsrs of all other parties who favor the movement. This was amended by iGeu. Harris to defer I any amendments until the next meeting. He said the members should have time to reflect u: on the resolutions. His amend ment carried. An executive committee of three will be named by the president and announced at the next meeting. The following commit. tee on by-laws was selected: It. Ii. Howey, i. It. Smith, A. B. Hower, F. N. MeIntire, E. D. Weed, Gen. Harris. Secretary Smith tendered his resignation during the proceedines. He said he did not shirk the duty, but his business required him to be out of the city about half of the time, a condition which pre vented him from filling the office with just ice to the interests of the club. His resig nation was accepted with regret. J. A. MacKnight was chosen as his successor. Any one desiring to become a member of the club can do so by calling at Farehen's drug store, corner of Broadway and Main, where the membership roll will be kept. lx Gov. Hauser was the first man to sign the Soll last night. He was followed by a great many more. The date of the next meetieg will be announced by the president through the p ess. As the members left the hall they beheld a magnificent aurora borealis, which lit up the northern sky with great streaks of silvery light reaching to the zenith.
