THE FINANCIAL FAITH OF A PROMI NENT PROHIBITIONIST. Why lie Oppose* Free Silver—Charge That the Law of 1873 Was a Crime lias Never Been Prove(l-F»«t Experience With De based Currency.. In a letter published iu The New Era, Chairman Samuel DieWo of the Prohibition national committee outlines his views on the currency question as follows: Without undertaking an argument iu behalf of any proposition herein, I sub mit the following as in part a declara tion of my financial faith: First.—Upon any satisfactory plan for equalizing the intrinsic and nom inal value of our coins I am a bimetal list. An international agreement or an increased ratio might sufficiently ap proximate the desired result. To de crease the amount of gold in our gold coins might accomplish tho same end, hut would be a palpable fraud. Second.—As between gold mono metallism and silver monometallism I unhesitatingly declare for the former. As to free coinage—several years ago when this question began to attract public attention I found myself in clined to sympathize with the advo cates of free coinage. Before commit ting myself either way I sought to make a careful examination of tho question, and believe that I was ablo to study the problem its a student and not as an ad vocate. I began my examination of tho i.-Nue, however, with tho belief that a studious investigation would only tend to confirm and strengthen impressions and prejudices which, at tho time, I know rested on no well established foundation. Au examination of the issuo m all its bearings has led me, almost against my will, to tho conclusion that at tho ratio proposed, and without international agreement, the free coinage of si Ivor by the United States would bo a calamity of no mean magnitude. In this positiou I find myself iu harmony with the best thought of tho Prohibition party, as witness the rejection of a free coinage plauk at Cincinnati by tho decisive vote of 335 for to 69G against. Tho follow ing are among the conclusions which have forced themselves upon mo: First.—Tho charge that tho law of 1873 was a “crime” and tho outcome of a “conspiracy” has never been proved. There is no direct testimony, tho cir cumstantial evidence is utterly inade quate, and tho absenco of motive is im portant. Second.—The effort on tho part of the silver men to pose as tho especial friends of tho workingmen and to hold up their opponents in tboguiso of “aris tocrats,” “bondholders,” “robbers,” “gold barons,” “Shyloeks,” etc., is a most disgusting exhibition of tho dema gogue's art. Third.—Equally insincere and absurd is tho attempt to arouse prejudice against an inert substance by tho violent dec lamation that “gold is a traitor,” “gold deserted tho country when Sumter was fired upon,” “gold never fought a bat tle for ns,” “gold fled in tho time of danger,” “nobody saw any gold during the war.” Substitute “silver” for “gold” iu tho preceding quotations, and they are equally true. Fourth.—Gold, measured by human toil, which is tho only true standard, has steadily depreciated in purchasing power for many years. Fifth.—Commodities, produced by improved methods of production, ought to depreciate in value, and such depre ciation is no evidence of an apprecia tion in tho currency of the country. Sixth.—Debtors contracting debts during or soon after the war and pay ing “dollar for dollar” in the late sev enties or since certainly suffered serious hardship. This hardship was incident to our recovery from au era of depreci ated money and was not caused by tho “crimo” of 1873. Seventh. —Free coinage, :is proposed, would mean silver mouometalliain, de preciated currency and tho prompt dis appearance of gold. Eighth.—To defend the debasement of our currency on tho ground that cheap money will benefit the debtor class, enabling them to discharge their obligations more easily, is to advocate rank dishonesty. Ninth.—A reasonable prospect of the enactment of such legislation as is ad I located by the silver men would pre I pitate an era of forced liquidation : lertain to yield calamitous results. Tenth.—All experience with a de based currency abundantly proves that nuder sncb a regime commodities promptly advance in price, while the advance in wages is always less prompt ; and in the degree of advance less per 1 fectly compensates for the decreased purchasing power of the circulating ' medium. To add 50 per cent to the ; workingman’s wages and 100 percent to his expenses will be a sorry measure of relief. Samuel Dickie. Albion, Mich., July 27. What Nations Use Gold? The following table from pago 45, United States mint report, shows the amuuut of money per capita each na tion has: United State*. 123 0U England. 20 00 France.ltd 00 Germany. 19 00 Austria. 9 U0 Netherlands. 25 00 Belgium. 20 00 Italy. 9 00 Spain. 13 00 Portugal. 23 00 Russia. 8 00 Roman nia. 0 34 Turkey. 2 29 Australia. 24 00 ( Japan (silver). 4 00 India (silver). 3 33 China (silver). 2 to , Mexico (silver?. 4 71 Central American states (silver). 3 78 j South American states (silver and paper). 17 00 France has the largest per capita and the largest aggregate stock of gold. She has $825,000,000 in gold, while we have $025,000,000. The mint report for 1894 says the Bank of France, which holds the money of France in its hands, has: Gold.*420,000,000 Bilvor. 225,000,000 showing $205,000,000 more gold than silver. Tho November statement of the Unit ed States treasury showed specie hold ! iugs: bilwr.. Gold. 120,000,000 showing $282,000,000 more silver than gold. So it appears that the Bank of Franco held nearly $3 in gold to every dollar iu silver, whilo tho United States treas ury hold only $1 in gold to every $4 in silver. _ The Prospective 10 to 1 Crieis. Suppose a congress and a president pledged to put this cheap dollar scheme in operation once fairly elected. Does it require any great study to see that, from the very day tho election result was known, every dollar of our $003, 000,000 of gold and gold certificates won la iusiautly go out of circulation and thereby cause tho most violent con traction of the currency ever known? Is it not clear that credit, for tho time be ing, would be utterly destroyed, and a financial crisis precipitated, unparal leled iu this generation and probably in all history? From this maelstrom the country would, of courso, in time, emerge. But it would emerge to do business solely on a silver basis, with inillious of inno cent debtors pressed to the wall long be fore the new congress could meet to 6et tho scheme on foot: with inillious of innocent creditors robbed of a large per cent of their honest dues; with every old soldier’s pension virtually cut iu two and every species of business rela tion disturbed.—George L. Douglass in Kansas Star. St< wnrt In His Prime. Tho silver people are fond of pulling records on peoplo who ■ ppose the freo and unlimited coinage of silver, but hero is a paragraph taken from a speech made by Senator Stewart iu 1871, in discussing tho proposition that led to the “crime of 1872,” two years after ward. The senator then was in his prime: “I want the standard gold, and no paper money not redeemable iu gold; no paper money tho value of which is not ascertained; no paper money that will organize a gold board to speculate iu it. Gold is tho universal standard of the world. Everybody knows what a < dollar in gold is worth. ”—Mound City (Kau.) Republic. rn«oun<l Currency. “How has Bluffton beeu doing?” asked the man who had been away from his native eommnuity for some time. “Well, bo has made a great deal of money”— “Getting along well, is he?” “Well, ho seemed to get along first rate till he tried to pass some of it,”— Washington Star. free silver beauty scorned.

Mr. Wright Morgan won the cup, taking nine rings;, Harry Burdette was second, with eight rings. The prizes were presented to the victorious : knights by Hon. G M.

Licklider had 85 va rieties of fruit in which there were 65 differ • nt sorts ot apples. Mr. Morgan Stanley had 24 varieties of apples. The feaiure of the second day was the public speaking. Hon. Josiah Patterson, member of Congress from Tennessee, and Postmaster General Wilson, were booked for a i dresses,a rid the fact that they were to speak caused the presence of many prominent peo ple from this and adjoining States Mr Jos. rf. Miller, United Stales commissioner of in ternal revenue, was among the interested visitors. Col. Forrest W. Brown introduced the speakers. Mr. Patterson, who made the first address, spoke on the financial question. He made a masterly argument in favor of sound mon ey, and his speech made impressions upon the throng tl»Ht heard it. He took the po sition thst the effect of the free coinage of sil ver would inevitably he to drive the $600, 000,000 gold now in use from the circulation r . . ._ II.___I .1_— a_X_ that had the go'd standard with tlume that had the silver, and showed the degrees of progress arid of civilization of each, and made a striking illustration of the wages paid for labor in them. He said the true unit of value was a day's labor, and men were happiest and best of! when they got mo»t for a day’s work. They got most in gold standard countries. He evoked hearty applause when he said he preferred Cleve laud to Weaver, Carlisle to Stewart, “Billy” Wilson to IVffer. He advised those South ern men who had strayed from the party fold to come back home, even at the risk of 1 getting a good spanking. When Mr. Wilson was introduced lie said j he indorsed and approved all that Colonel Patterson had said on the money question. He advised the farmers to favor the coinage of a dollar fmm fifty cents* worth of silver whenever the govrrnment would agree to call two pecks of wheat or corn a bu-hel.— Coming to this subject, “The Farmer and tbe|New Tariff," Mr. Wiiaon »aid that the people were now so close together on the tariff t at it was no longer a partisan quea sion. He believed that a new era of prosper ity was now dawning for the American far mer. When President Cleveland t<*ok his stand for sound money, prosperity began to plume it-elf for such a flight as had never come to our people. The tariff laws enact ed by the late Congress were supplementary to this hem tidal legislation. The people prosper when they put them selves in line with the great forces of modern progress, and our tariff laws help or hurt us as they are in accord with the principles of modern progress. The farmer lives in a new world from that of even twenty years ago.— The old days of farming are days of the past and will never return. The man who pro duce* to day produces in competition with the world. He is not subject to the cu-toms of hi» community, but to the laws of the world. The farmers of Jefferson county must compete with the farmers of Argentina, of India and or Kumi*. Having moved in to the conditions of a new world, tbe farmer mu»t adapt himself to its conditions. Mr. Wilson said he bad used his influence to ra«e farmers’ burdens, so as to enable him to meet these conditions, and the object of the Inst tariff bill was to prevent the agri cultural interests from being taxed to keep up another class of people. The first year’s operating of the new tariff, he said, imper fect as that measure was, had brought about to some extent this effect. Now, as the souutries of the world were developed, so upportunites are offered for marketing American products. The whole ipiestion of agricultural products wa.« that of demand and supply, uud the great thing for the far mer is to find markets for what has to come, Mr. Wilson said he believes! that the far mer of the future would be as prosperous as the farmer of the past, upon this condition —that he shall be as careful, as industrious and us accurate as the merchant, the manu facturer and the business man. The abso lute and most wonderful economies were what made it possible to pay dividends iu manufacturing enterprises, aud this same system of economy and freedom from waste must prevail among the farmers. Lighten ing his burdens with the new tariff has giv en him a great opportunity. What is to be done for the American horse? asked Mr. Wilson He told how tbe new French vehicles, propelled by petro leum motors, had apparently come to stay. St-am has been taking the place of horses, and now electricity is taking the place of steam The bicycle, a toy a few years ago, is now a great and popular means of trans portation. These inventions have taken the places of 5,000,000 horses, and another blow is felt by the farmer. * Now in raising hia products the farmer must take account of these new forces. He must study to raise those thing* in which there is least competition, for w hich there is most demand and which can he produced most economically ami profitably. In cloa ing Mr. Wilson said he was hopeful of see ing this beautiful valley more prosperous and its people even more happy than they had ever been before, though perhaps pros perity would come in u different way than of old.
