over th« elate In the in?erest of the Populist ticket. I b»*l'-v» there ar*- very

that you are repeatinsr upon th- ntcmp some of these. -tat- ments
The high estimate that I place upon you »!> a man arvi a? a «mp a gner

for the sake of going to I therefore *ak- tr-.i ipmi> of calling your
attention *o one or two of the?* j»ta:**ments. and respect fvlSy r«q»wt you to

part of the 140),000,Oft) of 7->»s. will, in his ofR.'UU re;»>rt.«. hr accepted a* tbe
best authority on earth as to when these notes *». re Issued. In ids report of
T** ember 4, 3>C. he states in the moat cb-.ir aivJ unmis!akar.»e langu.igv that
KSD.M.M of thefe 7-3 fes were not issi *d and outstanding unti'. after the close
bi the war. SSpt-aiiiag of toe heavy requisition* from the war department after
the fall of Richmond, and of the <-30 notes, he aaya in this titpor;:
"The secretary perceived the ne< erslty of reuliaing a- as po-'slbla
the amount—S&2e,OOO.WO~atlll authorized to be borrowed under tids act. * • •
Before the flrat of August the ertire amount of |Mtt.*W,W» had been taken."
(S.-e Cor.greeslonai Olobe. XSOk6, part 5, appendix, page 43, in Seattle Public
Library; aJao, Bayley. infia, pug" W.)
If McCulioch knew what he was talking about, you are mistaken over half
a biillon dollaxa in your estimate of the amount of i-3os Issued prior to the
close of the war.
Mr. Jkiyley, in "National Loans of the United States," a work gotten out
under the direction of Francis A. Walker, and constituting a part of the
Census Report of 18S0, arid issued by the government, seta forth on page 165
that of these 7-3f% only H10,*12,250 were iesued and outstanding in l*'-*. which
proves that jou ore mistaken io the amount of s7l9, V>~.~iW in your estimate of
the amount of 7-30s outstanding in 1564. Mr. Bay ley also sets forth that only
S:«t»,GGO.MM of the 7-3W were Usued prior to April 1, |l6i, eight days before the
close of the war. proving you In error over half a billion dollars m your
estimate of the amount of 7-nos Issued up to the close of the war.
In your estimate for 1564 ycu include $217,024,16»> of compound Interest notes.
According to Kayley. above quoted. page Itil, on January 1, 1563, only
$125.179,27t) of these notes were outstanding, and on April 1, 1565, only $127.9.12,5W0.
Vou are. therefore, mistaken over $Sf-.000,000 in your estimate of the amount of
compound Interest notes outstanding in ltf-4. and sirf),toW, , *iO in your estimate of
tae amount of these notes outstanding at the close of the war.
If from the total $2,113,506,*02.57 which you claim as the circulation for the
North lri 1w.4, you deduct |719,000,00u of 7-30s. and the sum of $95,000,000 com
pound Interest notes above shown to be wrongfully included In that total, and
divide the remainder by 25,#X>,000. you will lind that the per capita circulation,
in lt«i4 tor the North is reduced from SS4.G2 to only $52, and the Whole founda
tion for your "catastrophic reduction" crumbles.
There are. In your grand total, other items amounting to se-.eral hundred
million dollars which can easily be shown in similar manner to be wrongfully
included, but these two instances are sufficient to prove that your estimate of
the circulation in ix>4, and on to the okwe of the war, is absolutely wild, even
granting that all the securities named in your total were used generally as
which was nut the fact.
Again, you atate that the farmers sold their 1814 crop of wheat, rye, oats
and corn for $993,389,!»62, but that, on account of the "catastrophic reduction"
they received only s«<<>.t>s7,4i© for their 1565 crop of thesa four cereals, aad
thereby suffered a loss of $336,}#)2,072.
Let us see. The UM crop was cold mainly during the last si* months of
1884. The U>66 crop was sold mainly during the last six months of 18%. The
prices Just named are greenback prices. Rut. during the last six months of
iMrl greenbacks were worth in gold only 42 cents on the doliar; while during the
last six months of 1»65 they were wurth 6k cents on the doliar. bureau of
statistics quarterly reports, 187&-9, page 116.)
Reducing the greenback price of the f >ur cereals to coin, we find that the
farmers received $4t>7,223,615 In gold for their I*o4 crop, and for their
livu. crop—an increase of $39,000,000.
Anil further, the senate finance committer report on "Wholesale Prices,
Wages and Transportation." Fifty-second congress. Second Session Report No.
1.354, shows that in a dollar in gold would buy much more of the things
required by farmers than It woull. buy In lM»t. It Is universally claimed by
Populists that at that time the people were practically out of debt; and yoi|
yourself in this speech acquiesce in that view. Under the circumstances, just
how you can figure out a great loss on the four cereals is more than I can see.
In view of ail the foregoing. I respectfully request that in your Armory
speech this evening, or at some early date through the columns of the Seattle
Times, you bring forth and present to the public:
First—Proof that in 1884, or at any time prior to the close of the war, the
amount ef T-SOs outstanding #as SS3O.Oty,OO© or Within many hundred millions
of that sum. #
Second-Proof that In IHM. or at any time prior to the close of the war. the
amount of compound interest notes outstanding was $217,0W),Q00, or within
000,000 of that amount
Third—Proof that the farmers of the United States received less in gold,
or in the nect*sarles and comforts of life, for their 1805 crop of the four cereals
than for their l-*t»4 crop of the same.
Fourth—On ptMft 2.285 of the Congressional Record for February 22, IS:*, and
on page 16 of your speech printed in document* form, you print an alleged quota
tion, c <naisting of twenty-six hues, from tha finance report of IstS, page I'M.
A copy of the finance report of !>«:%» tr. be ftunj at the Washington National
bank In this city, and, 1 think, at the Seattle public library. I challenge you
to product that rrport at the Armory this evening and read from that teport,
on page -♦«. or on any other that matter which is set forth in speech
as a quotation from that report. Further, 1 challenge you to produce at any
time or place any regular goverrment document, message or report la which
the alleged quotation can be found. Very truly.

The unearthing of two Indian graves on
the Denny hotel grounds, near the corner
of Stewart street and Second avenue,
cauiKMi a rush of relic hunters of both
aeaes, jtiJ of all ages, who busied tbem
«fives all day yesterday digging up the
suft sandy soil with sticks, and whose la
bor *..s rewarded by the finding of various
Indian relict, glass beads, silver rings,
bracelets, brans butions &U United State®
t Ktr coin*.
The first find was made late Thursdajr
evening, when tne workmen, engaged in
clearing the grounds on the west aide of
the bote!, uncovered tfie two Indian grave*.
Thssse ;;ai been completely covered and
grown uvtr by the roots of a large tree,
and the uprooting of the stump of thia
tree laid bare the remain* that bad been
buried nearly naif a century ago. There
were but few bones lef:. the skuiisbelngthe
best preserved, and these nearly decayed,
one of toem so mutti so as to make it
doubtful whether it was that of a child or
an adult. Trinkets innumerable were
found buried with Iheai. ieaving no doubt
that thfse were the renia.ns of Indians.
This warn emphasized by the finding of
part of a wr;st and arm bune. on which
sill hung a silver bracelet. Fifteen silver
rirga were found in a bundb. the rings be
ing evidently of Indian make and not
ciosed or welded. A big brass kettle was
also uncovered in this mound, besides
beads innumerable, of all that's and col
ors. and a large sficd belt buckle.
The mou»: important find to thewe making
the discovery was the uncovering of a lot
of stiver coins, quarters and half dollars.
This gave a rest to the hunt and soon in
creased the nuinbrr of prospectors. Sever
al exaggerated stories were given out
about tiuwe rich finds, but when sifted
down, the total amount recovered will not
exceed 119. One man. E. L. Holt, found
$2.30 in quarters and halved. The dates of
thrse pieces were 1&9. IS&4. 1555. Isfi6 and
IK<7. No money of any later date was
found. Tlje presence of th.s money in thede
graves is accounted for by the fact that it
is an Invariable custom among Indians of
all tribes to bury with their dead every
thing he or she was po&scserd of at the
tkne of death. Including money.
Yesterday the searchers among the soil
at the corner of Stewart street and Second
avenue were rewarded by finding numerous
glass beads. One person found several lit
tle copper balls, while another found some
br.isd hooks and eyes, and ail seemed well
repaid for their labors.
Mr. A. A. Denny, perhaps the best post
ed man on the early history of Beattle,
when queat:ohed about t!u>se Indian gTaves,
said he had no recollection of that ever
having been an Indian burying- ground.
"Seattle"® first burying ground for the
whites," continued Mr. Denny, "was lo
cated 011 the Denny hotel ground?, about
where Stew.irt street crosses Second ave
nue. We buried then* for several years,
and also during the Indian war. Burials
there were commenced as early as ]Sc.3
and continued as late as 1-W. I remember
one thing in particular In that connection.
I was temporarily located in Olympla in
the land office, when some friends wrote
to me asking ma to set aside that piece of
ground near the Denny hotel for a burial
ground. I replied to them by letter that I
could not do it, that It would be wrong !n
every sense of the word to continue that
pl ice as a burial ground. and time would
satisfy th»n> that I was right. That was
in ISfil. The burial ground was then re
moved down to what is now known as
Denny park, and that was considered per
manent for year*, until they finally located
the present cemetery at I>ake V'ew.
"In the meanwhile, during the Indian
war. there were a few Indians burled in
:he old grounds near the Denny hotel, but
they were all friendly Indians, and the
number so buried there could not have ex
ceeded three or four. Of course, I am not
in a position to state positively that no In
dian* were buried there before the advent
of th>- whites, but I am Inclined to th nk
not. I have a recollection of one friendly
Indian whose remains were buried there,
who had accidentally shot himself."
Mr. Denny said that the dead were all
removed from the old burying grounds to
the new ones, though he Inclines to the be
lief that owing to tbe necessar'ly nesr
lected condition nf many of the old graves,
a number of bodies were never found when
transfers were made to new grounds, ond
this may account for the presence of these
two Indian craves.
The few friendly Indians burlrd near the
white*. Mr. Denny said, belonged to th©
Flathead, or Duwamlsh, tribe.
