LYON COUNTY TIMES.
DAYTON, - NEVADA. Saturday.June 20, 1896. “If the Republican platform de clares for free coinage I will not be a candidate. I would not run on a free silver platform.”—Wm. McKin ley. And this was no josh, either. Senator Mantle, in a recent speech, gave the eastern people some facts to ponder over. It has, of late, been customary for the en-t lightened (?) East to dub the silver States as “rotten boroughs,” and the residents a class of “corrupt and undesirable citizens.” The following remarks and statistics presented by the Senator ought to dispel this idea to a considerable extent: “I assert, Mr. President, that within a radius of five miles of Carnegie Hall, in the city of New York, where the Presbyterian Home Missionary Society recently held its meeting to beg funds with which to convert the wicked people of the ‘badly regulated municipalities’ and ‘undesirable States, of the West,’ there is twenty times more of squalid poverty, of pauperism, of ignorance, of crime and crimi nals, than can be found in all the silver-producing States of the West combined. I do not make these declarations lightly nor without some investiga tion of the subject. In order to bear out my statement I have made a few comparisons between the five silver-producing States of the West which are characterized as ‘rotten boroughs,’ ‘pocket boroughs,’ min ing camps,’ ‘corrupt communities,’ etc., and five of the very old, very respectable, and very highly civil ized States of the East, namely, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, New York and Pennsylva nia, all of them except one being members of the original thirteen States which formed the Union. I have prepared some comparisons which show that in the so-called silver States the percentage of illit erates to the total population is 4.3, while in the five Eastern States named it is 6.9, or greater in the East than in the West. Among the foreign-born popula tion of the silver States the percent age of illiteracy is 8.9, while among the foreign-born citizens of the five Eastern States it is 21, or nearly three times as great. The wealth per capita of the five silver States is $2,859. For the five Eastern States it is $1,145, be ing less than half as much. The total State, county, municip al, and school debt per capita in the five silver States is $13.71. In the five Eastern States it is $27.58, being more than double. The expenditure of money for the support of public schools may be taken as a fair index to the character of the people. In the sil ver States I find it is $15.58 per capita per annum, in tne nve East ern States it is only $11.27 per cap ita per annum. The percentage of debt in force against the value of all taxed real estate in the five silver States iB only 6.64. In the five Eastern States it is 18.73, being nearly three times as much. The number of paupers in a com munity may also safely be taken into account as reflecting in some degree its moral and material stat us. The number of paupers to each 100,000 of population in the five silver States is 58.1. In the fiye Eastern States it is 189 2, be ing nearly four times as great.” It is now in order for the Re publican rags of this State to olass Teller, DuboiB, Cannon, and the other leading bolters of the St. Louis convention as “idiots,” “los ing their minds,” “ranters,” etc., as they did Jones and Stewart when they left the party, The bright and intelligent men will all be out (of the Republican party before an other »foar years. Was it because tke silver dollar was not an “honest” dollar that it was demonetized in 1873? If not. when did the silver dollar become a dishonest dollar? Senator Teller has shown bis his manhood by standing up for principle instead of party He has also shown that he is the true friend of the West, the South, and the laborers and producers of the entire country. He has left the Republican party and is now as good a silver Democrat as Bland', Morgan, Tillman and others, and there is no reason why the Demo crats should not nominate him for President when they meet at Chi cago. With Teller for first place and Morgan, Bland or Daniels for second place, the Democrats would have a ticket that would most like ly be indorsed by the Populists, and such a ticket would mean cer tain defeat to McKinley, his money bags and gold bug friends. A man named Fairbanks was temporary chairman of the Repub lican convention, in St. Lonis. He is a rank gold bug, a millionaire, and his address to the convention was an insult to every free coinage man in the assembly—there were but few. We want it distinctly un derstood that he is not any relative of the proprietor of the Times. This may be to his credit, but we are dead sure it would be no credit to us to own snch a fool gold bug for a relative. The managers of McKinley are said to have a $20,000,000 sack to use to elect him. This money was contributed by Wall and Lombard street bankers, and represents but a small portion of their stealings from the producers of the country. How do you like the idea of having these robbers use the money they steal from you, to concoct schemes to rob you of more, Mr. Mudsill. Keep in the middle of the road now. The fight is on in dead ear nest for a single gold standard and the complete subjugation and en slavement of the people. When you see a man who tells you he i6 for free coinage but will vote the Republican ticket, hit him with a club. Should the Democrats at their Chicago convention nominate a free coinage man on a free coinage plat form, will the Populists and Silver parties indorse him when they meet at St. Louie? Qan.the silver men afford to have two silver men in the field to split the silver vote? Ip the silver dollar is not an “honest” dollar, who made it dis honest, and when did it become dis honest? And if the silver dollar is dishonest why ain’t somebody ar rested for passing counterfeit money when they pay for goods with it? The Enterprise says the money plank of the Republican party is interpeted as being for a gold stand ard. Really? We thought it meant free coinage in Nevada.
