Hew to the Line.
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, SEPTEMBER 12, 1896.
WILLIAM J. BRYAN,
th Mckinley side show.
Lv all well regulated circuses or
hippodrome exhibitions, there is
akavs a side show or museum at
tached which is with the main show
hut for which an extra admission
filth the McKinley gold-bug ex
travaganza there is now a full
fledged side attraction, organized at
Indianapol.s, Iud., called the Na
sional 1 emocracy. The two manag
ing showmen are John M. Palmer
of Illinois, and Gen. Simon B.
Buckncr of Kentucky. These two
gentlemen also form the principal
attraction, but not all, as there are
many other features of the show by
which it is expected to draw
patronage. It comprises a sort of
collection of rare and extinct species
of political characters. The heads
of the ticket represent a mummy
fied pair of political ancients. They
once existed and breathed and
drew their salary as all other office
holders do, but time with its ex
asperating hand has swept these two
old cronies into the background of
active life, and they have at last
found a fitting vooation by being
put on exhibition in a small tent
among the Egyption curios with
which they are surrounded. Among
the freaks under this canvass, is
the man with the iron jaw, known
as Bourke Cochran of New York.
Then there is the wild man of Cali
fornia John P. Irish; the snake
charmer comes from the swamps of
LouUiaua in the person of Senator
Caffery; the ossified man in to be
found in the person of Bynum of
Ind ; the contortionist is represented
by Ben Cable of Ills.; the high
priest of virtue and domestic purity
is found in the hoary headed saint
from Kentucky, W. C. P. Breckin
ridge. This adjunct of the Mc
Kinley combination is for the pur
pose of drawing within its doors all
who may not feel like patronizing
the big tent. In'other words the
object is to aid the election of Mc
Kinley and defeat Bryan.
It is the desperate effort of the
gold standard men to defeat the
people, and fasten the golden chains
of bondage upon their necks for
ever. These men who have grown
gray in their service to Democracy,
now turn against their life-long
principles and service, and in order
to serve the avarice of their hearts,
become recreant to all the tradi
tions of their past lives, and are
willing to aid and comfort their old
time enemy that they may possibly
be permitted to eat the husks of
the goldbug feast should they win.
This whole affair is backed and
promoted by Hanna's gold. But it
wJl not be a drawing card; it is
another case of the jackass enclosed
in the skin of the lioa; the ears are
exposed and the roar of this "beast
is but the. braying of the ass. It
will have no perceptible effect on
the result except to increase 3Ir.
Bryan's majority, as all those who
vote for this pair of old fakirs
would have voted for McEaley
anyway, and this political staf e
play will make the way easy for
thousands of hoaestfiepblksas to
Tote and work JorBryaa. '
MEXICO AND FREE SILVER.
Much is being said through the
goldbug papers, and by the Mc
Kinley orators, about the low wages
paid in Mexico, a free silver coun
try. Notwithstanding all reports
from residents of that country, and
visitors from our own and other
countries all agree that Mexico is
today one of the most prosperous
lands on earth. As to the ques
tion of wages, it is true that the
Mexican peon, unskilled and ignor
ant, receives less than the average
American wage-earner, but still
even he receives much larger wages
than most of the laborers in gold
standard countries. The Egyptian
fellah, living under the beauty of a
gold standard, works for five cents
per day; the Turk works for a few
coppers per day; the Spaniard re
ceives on an average for 12 hours'
work, the magnificent sum of
twenty cents per day; the Portu
guese, for 12 hours of hard labor.
gets seventeen cents per day. Por
tugal adopted the gold standard in
1853, and since that time her na
tional debt has increased 100 per
cent.; her three-per-cent. gold bonds
are now selling in London at
twenty-six and one-half cents,
while Mexico's silver bonds are
selling at ninety-six and one-half
Several goldbug merchants have
been offering to sell 50 cents worth
of goods and give a Mexican dollar
in exchange for an American dol
lar. This was thought to be a
great object lesson in favor of gold,
until some one offered to sell 50
cents worth of an article and give
2.50 in change in Portuguese 3
per cent gold bonds for one of our
All this rot about Mexico is for
the purpose of blinding the voter.
It is true Mexican dollars only pass
in this country at their bullion
value, and as silver is demonetized
in the United States they only pass
at that rate; but is that not true of
all foreign silver? Why don't we
hear something said about the value
of the Spanish silver dollar, the
French franc, the German thaler,
or the Canadian quarter? All these
countries are on a gold basis, and
yet their silver is only worth its
bullion value in this country. Mex
ico is a young Republic, not yet
thirty years old, with a mixed and
deteriorated race of people, and in
a land of mountains and volcanoes,
and which has been convulsed with
political revolutions for almost one
hundred years. In spite of all these
obstacles, under a free coinage sys
tem she has prospered, and is today
attracting the capitalists of the
world, and all her industries are ex
panding. Free silver nas helped
her, and will help the United States
far more should we return to that
system of money.
Like all the arguments of the gold
standard men, that of Mexico be
comes a boomerang, and only serves
to establish the soundness of bi
metallism. nr inr McKinley still remains at
home, receiving company and re
