The" "Difference Between the Systems.
Now, as against a party which, 'without daring to advocate
a gold standard yet declares in favor of its maintenance until other
nations come toour relief, and as against the othir so-called party
Which advocates the nomination of a ticket, not for the purpose of
electing-.itj-bui. for thepurposqof electing another ticket, we pre
sent a straightforward, emphatic declaration which is'so clear that
one who runs may read. We want the restoration of the free and
unlimited coinage of silver at the present legal ratio of 16 to 1,
without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation on the
earth. Our opponents have no policy on the money question.
They don't say that the gold standard is good. No party in the
history of the United States ever said that the gold standard was
good. No party would dare to
pc'iple, who for twenty years have suffered beneath the burden of
a gold standard. But what docs the Republican party say? Why,
it says we pledge ourselves to get rid of the gold standard and
substitute the principle of bimetallism. Doesn't that mean that
bimctalli'm is better than a gold standard? There can be no
other construction placed upon it, and after having declared that
bimetallism is better than a gold standard, that same platform
says that until the leading commercial nations shall coftseut to an
international agreement we must bear the gold standard. From
Mr. Biyaii's HotncUsville Speech.
The necessity of putting- aside party fealty and un
patriotic prejudices to properly define the political situ
ation becomes more and more apparent as the campaign
progresses. The question for every well-meaning citi
zen to decide is whether or not he is unbiased in his
opinion, and is net influenced by partizan zeal in solving
the financial question. The issue is too important to be
left to politics for settlement, and the consequences of a
mistake' in casting a ballot are too grave to depend upon
such demagogic utterances for guidance as the one above
quoted. The Republican platform distinctly declares in
favor of our present monetae system until the co opera
tion of other nations will insure practical bimetallism,
and if that is not advocating the gold standard and de
claring for its maintenance, then such a declaration can,
not be made. Every prominent man in American history-
including Jefferson, Hamilton, Jackson, Clay, Webster,
Benton, Blaine and others, regardless of party affilia
tion, has advocated this policy, and Mr. Bryan and the
silverite party are the first to insist that the United
States shall adopt silver monometallism in the place of a
monetae system that circulates gold, silver and paper
money at a parity.
The point to be made clear in this discussion is the
deception of the silverite leaders in claiming that their
party stands for bimetallism. The United States might
enforce bimetallism were it possible to corner all the
gold and silver of the world and provide for its dispo
sition. But that undertaking would involve national
bankruptcy, because the productionof these metals cou d
not be limited. Consequent-, bimetallism, without the
assistance of other nations, is impracticable. The open
ing of our mints to the independent and free coinage
of gold and silver at a ratio of 16 to 1, would immedi
ately destroy the ability of eur Government to keep these
metals at a parity. Bullion
ual account, and as the amount of the coinage could not
be limited, the public would be obliged to depend upon
the commercial and not the legal ratio of the metals for
guidance' as to the relative value of the two kinds of
coin. This has been demonstrated by every nation that
has tried independent bimetallism. In every instance it
has been abandoned as a failure, because the attempt to
establish bimetallism invariably resulted in monomet
allism. This country tried it for eighty-nine years, and
in 1873 our mints were closed to silver in order to put
in force a monetary system that would circulate gold
and silver at a legal ratio.
The sound money platform of the Republican party
declares for a monetary system that circulates money at
a legal ratio. The silverite platform declares for a mone
tary S3'stem that circulates monej- at the commercial
ratio, and that, in fact, is the difference between the
two platforms. The sound money system holds the
Government directly responsible for the issuance and
redemption of our money. The silverite system places
our money at the mercy of bullion producers, and its
issuance, circulation and value depends entirely on their
cupidity. The sound money system legally designates
the most valuable metal (gold) as the standard of value,
and is thereby enabled to circulate an inferior metal
(silver) at a parity. The silverite system invests the
public with the authority to decide whether, gold or
silver shall be the standard of value by declaring both
metals legal tender, and the result is that the superior
metal becomes a commodity, and the inferior metal the
sole circulating medium. This is accounted for by the
disparity between the commercial and legal ratios of
these two metals.
It should be understood that under a free coinage
system the worth of money, is regulated by its bullion
value, and if one metal brings more in. the market as a
commodity than the other, only the one of inferior value
is sent to the mints for coinage. When there is no finan
cial agitation the sound money system is a safeguard
against monetary disturbances. The silverite system
is always unreliable, because its standard is based' on
the least stable of tbe two metals and its value is rege
lated by the law of supply and demand This is in sub
stance a correct definition of the two systems. One is a
triplicate monetary system that circulates gold, silver
and paper money without depreciation, and the other is
a duplex system that circulates silver and paper of a
debased value. Strictly speaking, one is gold monomet
allism and the other is silver monometallism, because
one represents a gold and the other a silver standard.
In one of his speeches Mr. Bryan said tbat gold was
the money of those who hoard and silver was the money
of the common people. There could be no clearer or
more convincing argttmemt in, favor of a gold standard.
Gold would be tbe money of1 the comao people as well
as of those whose fear of a depreciated atasdard prompts
tkeai to'gatlrar j oar poM f er

efealatireprpeee, were J
it'not for the present- discussion. While tbe result of
this general alarm is a serious contraction of money and
a loss to business interests that cannot well be estimated,
its effect on the common people is entirely the most dis
tressing. Every mill or factory closed swells the ranks
of the unemployed, and every business house that sus
pends lessens the opportunity of the common people to
obtain credit or find employment. The cause of this uni
versal distrust of the future and the rapid approach of a
financial upheaval is the unreasoning demand for free
silver. Money holders will not invest until assured of our
financial stability, and the consequent ihrinkage of the
volume 'of business presents
the silverites carry the coming election they will be re
sponsible for the most disastrous money famine and
panic ey'er, experienced. Its ravages will destroy a large
proportion; of our business enterprises and deluge the
countrywith misery and despair, and in the end there
will be-iioifree silver. All this will happen because Mr.
Brj-an aiid.his silverite confederates have caused people to
hoard moriey for fear of its loss in the event of silverite

In speaUng yesterday of the good news

free and unllinut-d coinage of sih,er."
HegarU!i.g the soui d money Democrats,
Senator Faulkner had this so say:
"1 do not think it will make much
difference what they do. If they put a
rresldeutiul ticket In the Held I do net
belice it will rvcehe 30.000 votes in the
United Btates, although I could wish that
all tlh- Lolling Democrats would support
il instead of oting for JicKlnlcy, a most
or them will do- I do ml think rhat
many of them n ill shcot in the air. They
realize that a vote ror McKinley vt ill count
two against Urjan, while a te for a
but ling Democrat will count only one against
hiin, and their ob.ect is to uVfeat Bryan.
I think it altogether probable, however,
that the Indianapolis convention will put
a ticket in the field to catch the votes
of Democrats w)k would not supiHirt Mc
Kinley under any circumstances and might
otherwise vote for Bryan the little fel
lows hcte and there. But all the bigger
men-the men who are conscientiously op
posed to free and unlimited coinage, or
who oppose It ror pocketbook reasons,
will vote for McKinley. That Is my
opinion about It."
IS. A. Stewart, ofNorfolk, Neb., formerly
a member ot the lYuiisjlvanla bar, writes
as follows to a personal friend in' this city:
"We think Xorfolk.hotU city and prccincf,

tion and argument:
"Haling been deeply impressed by tbe

cially grieved, shocked and hornried by :i-e
awruicrl.iieuf 187 J,' as so luridly depleted

stitution aial oilier sliver organs, i havc
changed my Mews on the money question,
and am rraay lo lualulutu the propositions
follow! jic lu joint debate or newspaper con
trol eni .
"I uciepl the arguments uf the advocates
of silVtr and agree with their remedy as
far as It goes. However, It does not go far
enough. Let us have plenty ot remedy ill
ract, enough to make debt and poverty
llilags of tue past, relics of tUe dart ages.
I am in favor of the free and unlimited
coinage or pig Iron at a ratio of 16 to 1
with gold by Me United Htates alone, in
dependently of all uatLjns,und can prove
ti the l"-t authority obtainable that such
a poiicy-on the part ot the United Btates
will rame prices, 'put plenty of money In
circulation and giie the 'hottest debtor a
chance, lo pay Lis debts, thereby making
the wnole t-ouutr prosperous.
'Now lo the first place. It may be urged
by some who do not understand the sub
ject or standards ot value, that a free
coinage act for lrcti would not raise it
price to a ratio of 1C lo 1 with gold. To
them I reply that '(he stamp of this gov
ernment' and the 'legal tender qualities
o( the iron dollar would Instantly make
the bullion value of pig Iron the same as
the mint value. 'For who would part
with no ounce of this precious metal for
anything else than the mint value?
(Stewart, Jones, and Bryan.)
"Again It may be urged that our mint
would be overcrowded with pig Iron. F
reply that the price of piglroo having been
raised from ST.&O a ton to a ratio or 16 to
1 with gold the world over, 'no cne would
especially care to carry it to the mints,
since the mint price could be obtained any
where in the open market.' (Atlanta
Constitution.) Next it may be urged that
gold and silver would go out or circulation.
I reply, first 'This is a mere assumption
of the tools of the money power which they
cannot verily. (Atlanta Constitution); sec
ond, 'Suppose gold and silver do go out
of circulation. Is there not plenty of pig
iron to take their place and give the people
plenty of money?" (Bryan); and third,
'Such an assumption mixes the -ideas or.
circulating medium and standard of
value; gold" and silver would still be
potential money metals, though not In
circulation, and would lend their help
toward rating price-, and causing general
prosperity. (Cri-p.)
"1 hen, again. It may be urged against
thepig-irou standard of value that wages
would not rise in proportion to prices.
The rcpl Is: 'Wages wouKi be compelled
to iise, since no man would be fool enough
to work for one dollar a day who could
make 1,000 per day picking up rusty
nails and old horseshoes, and carrjing them
to the mint for coinage.' (Hull.)
"In addition, it may be urged by the
money power, by the 'Wall Street Sharks'
and -the Bond Street Shylocks' that we
could not alone go on a pig Iron basis with
out an International agreement- To such
daslurds as dare to lay a limit to the pow er
of the Airerftan people to do what they
please. Independently of all nations, I
hurl their cowardice and lack of patriot
ism back In their faces." (Bryan.)
"The 'crime' of demonetizing pig Iron
took place about 2,200 jears ago. when
certain "goldolators' and 'silverites,' lu
order to Increase the purchasing power of
their ill gotten wealth, eecreUy and 'like
thieves in the night, got the demonetiza
tion act passed repealing the good, old
free coinage act ot Ljeurgus. the friend
of our ancestors' daddies' 'Today China
Is the only country on earth honest enough
to Coin iron, and there the happy laborer
can carry home the wages of his honest
toil In a wheelbarrow. (Atlanta ConsU
tutlon.I "A ruinous tall In prices followed the de
monetization ot Iron and has continsed for
upward ot 2,000 years. I have calculated
the losses entailed upon the honest people
ot this world by that ruthless act, but tbe
figures are so enormous I fear a revo
lution will ensue if the people learn
Iiow greatly they have been robbed". But
facts are facts, and tbe best way to
right a wrong Is to meet it squarely.
Tbat loss Is $21,000,000,000,000,000;
000,000,000,000,000.' (Coin's Financial

The International Typographical Un'oa
has taken a hand in the case of Senator
Stewart's paper, tbe Stiver Knight, the
compositors on which are paid such low
wages that It has been a cause of grievance
for some time and one In which they have
hu J the sympathy of all the laboring organi
zations of Washington.
Some months ago The Times published
the facts, In the case which were sub
stantially that Senator Stewart was pa) Ing
bis compositors about $9 a week, whereas
the current rate for printers' work In
Washington was about do j We that rate.
The management of the Sliver Knight
when asked for Its reasons stated that the
compositors on the Silver Knight were
paid the rate or wages en rrenttn Alexandria.
Printers in Washington said, and it Is
well understood generally, that a nine dol
lar rale a week in Alexandria was possi
ble only because there was no organization
ot the compositors in that city, and it was
the belief that Senator Stewart had his
paper printed in Alexandria because he
could there take advantage of the com
positors In this matter of wages.
Borne criticism was made or the Sena
tor'M policy. InwHiauch ns be stands osten
sibly ror the party or the workluginao.
which party had been, and Is still making
capital of the statement that it Is the
employer on the gold side of the question
who had been robbing and otherwise abus
ing the worklngtnaii. - "
The puHlcatioii of the facts brought the
question directly to the attention or Typo
graphical Union or tnis city. A com
mittee was appointed some time ago, of
which Mr. Shelby Smith was chairman. tTi

with a view of arranging tbe matters in
dispute. The committee. It was learned
last night, has yet been unable to have
such a conrerence- The committee, how
ever, took tire pnlimlnary s'eps toward
having the problem settled fly, the means
at the disposition ot tbe union In case an
amicable arrangement could not be effected
with Senator Stewart. c
The committee wrote to President Prcs
cott of the International Union at India ii
a polls, and although the corre.pondence
has not been published It was staled last
night that the idea of the committee was
to have Alexandria placed under the
Jurisdiction of Columbia Typographical
President rrevcott has advised the com
mittee that such a plan could be adopted
and the settlement of the question is
therefore near at hand, wliether or not
Senator Stewartagrecstathe ptOceertings.
President Kelioe of Columbia Typo
graphical Union said last night that the
plan would have to be Indorsed or ratified
by a vote or the union here and that the
general sentiment of the members was
favorable to the proposition. When the
anion had passed upon It, the International
prc ent and executive council would
order the Jurisdiction extended and would
send an international organizer to Alex
andria. , THE EFFECT.
Mr. Kchoe said that the effect of this
would be torcqulreemployersln Alexandria
to pay the rate agreed on, or tbe scale
adopted, and should the employers refuse,
then the men could be ordered out. It
no-nunUn printers were then employed the
Silver Knight or any other paper employ-uon-jn
on printers were then employed the.
the unfair list- It Is expected that the
men will obey the order to go nut In the
emergency noted. During the time they,
are out by order they will be paid $7 a
week for doing nothing, while at present
they get but $9 for a hard week's work.
President Kehoe said that this arrange
ment wonld prevent the kind of competi
tion that now exist as letween Alexandria
and Washington. The compositors, while
imloti men, arc obliged to work In Alexan
dria for what they can get: but If this
principle were allowed to remain there
would be nothing to prevent other in
dustries employing compositors to have
work noneln Alexandria, taking ad vxntage
of the necessities or unemployed printers
and the other fact that there Is no rule as
to their compensation.
It Is probable tbat action will be taken
looking to the placing ot Alexandria un
der this Jurisdiction at tbe next meeting ot
-Columbia Typographical Union.
