DAYTON, - - NEVADA. Saturday.August 29, 1896. for president: WILLIAM J. BRYAN, OF NEBRASKA. FOR VICE president: ARTHUR SEWALL, OF MAINE. A BLOW TO THE OOLD MEM Professor Otto Arendt, of Ger many, has been quoted by the gold bugs as a great authority on finan cial problems, in fact as really the greatest in the world to-day. They have confidently relied upon him to knock the props from under what they are pleased to term the ‘^silver craze.” Now comes this famed German professor and declares in favor of the free and unlimited coin age of silver by the United States, averring that it is the only way by which international bimetallism can be forced from the Nations of Eu rope. A recent dispatch from Washington says: Professor Otto Arendt’s statement in the New York Journal is more than a blow between the eyes to the gold monometallists who are mas querading as international bimetal lists. So fond have they been of quoting Dr. Arendt as a stanch up holder of their views that they have landed him to the skies and have held him before the country as the one great authority on bimetallism before whom they bowed in adora tion and whose word was final on the whole subject. Now, too late, they learn that he is a strong advo cate of free coinage on the part of the United States as the one meas ure sure to force the hands of Eu rope’s money kings from the throat of silver. What course they can pursue to back water from the brink of the logical Niagara before them cannot be imagined. The Democratic leaders are swift to see the advantage before them. Dr. Arendt’s masterly analysis of the situation will be sent to every part of the United States as a cam paign document, in both English and German. Probably the gold bugs will now gather together and have Bourke Cockran, in forceful and picturesque language, declare that Professor Otto Arendt is an anarchist.—Sac. Bee. If the single gold standard can be forced upon South America and Asia, as it has since 1873 been forced upon North America and Europe, gold must inevitably ap preciate to at least four times its present absurd value; or, to put it otherwise, commodities must de cline to one-fourth of the present prices, and labor, all the world over, be crucified as it never was crucified before—in days of midae val serfdom or even chattle slavery. Such is the contest. If the money lords can force monometallism up on the whole world, they will suc ced in establishing the most gigan tic moneyed aristocracy among the rich, and the worst system of peon age serfdom among the masses that has ever cursed the hapless sons of men.—E. V. Debs. If the silver miner under the law of free coinage finds that silver bul lion is raised so that which is now 50 cents will be worth 100 cents, then there are no 50-cent dollars, and if the other man is correct and the law adds nothing to the value of the metal, and you simply con vert 50 cents’ worth of silver into a 50-cent dollar, then the mine owner has not made a cent. W. J. Bryan. The Democrats, Populists and Silver men of California have fused. The Democrats get five of the nine electors and four of the seven Con gressmen. This is good work, and there is no doubt that California will give Bryan and Sewall a big majority of her votes in November. Republicans say they are going to vote for McKinley because they want a change from Democratic rule. The Cleveland rule, however, is the same that McKinley has been pledged to carry out in case he is elected, so far as the financial ques tion is concerned, and that really is the main question in any count ry. This being the ca6e, what hope can the people have for better times by electing a man pledged to con tinue the same kind of an adminis tration as the one Cleveland has given them for the past four years? W. J. Bryan is a different kind of Democrat from any who has re ceived the presidential nomination since the days of Jefferson. He represents a different class of peo ple and has different ideas. If Re publicans think they will get a change of policy by electing Mc Kinley thry are foolish. He is bound to carry out the wishes of Mark Hanna and his friends, and they are not the men to spend mil lions of dollars for McKinley’s elec tion simply for the love they bear the dear people If Americans want a change from the Cleveland style of Democratic rule they will have to vote for Bryan this year— the candidate of the new Democra cy and the people. McKinley has at last given his letter of acceptance to the public. It is composed of a lot of old stock arguments on the tariff question. He declares be is a gold bug, prob ably to help Hanna bleed Wall street for another barrel or two of gold. He says nothing about the obligations he is under to Hanna and his followers. It is the slop piest letter ever written by a presi dential candidate. Mr. Bryan, say the dispatches, refuses to debate with anyone in this campaign except McKinley. But that was said safely after the emphatic announcement by Gov ernor McKinley that he will adhere to the code and not enter the cam paign as a debater. This has been the rule with Presidential candi dates, and Governor McKinley is right in adhering to it.—Record-Un ion. Of course, he is dead right in ad hering to this rule. He has not an argument to advance why he should be elected that is worth a “50-cent dollar.” Republicans who are so much afraid of four years more of Demo cratic rule should remember that the proposed rule by Bryan will be free coinage—just what the Repub lican party has been promising the people for 20 years past up to six months ago. The Atlanta Constitution (Hoke Smith’s paper) knows enough to come in when it is wet. It says: ‘‘William Jennings Bryan is the best silver Bill that’s been before the country in a long time.” Hoke Smith baa resigned his Cabinet position and will talk for Bryan during the campaign.
