'IIh- rcpuhllenn platform deelaied em-^ph.tl Ically In favor of bimetallism, ilial is^to sa^ pletlgtd the party to do all in Its^power lu sccuri tnternatiotil bimetallism. Ofcourse, the etxl aimed at Was bimetal^^lism. It was .1 \ittuat acknow ledKineiit^that bimetallism is a good thing ami that^the people of the I nlted States ought lo^have it. That iswh.it tin .knim iati. pl.tt-^torm said, tlx 'llfTercnec between the two^was on imlc)m ndeiit bimetallism and in^^ternational bimetallism. Moth parties wen-^pledgtd (o bimetallism, there Is no doubt^about this proposition Thlrtttii million^live hundred thousand people voted thete-^fore for btmetatlism. expressing nowhere^in that vote j doubt that bimetallism^should be the American (rollcy. Now to^make it an American doctrine It Is m e( s-^i sary to open the mint.- alike lo both gold^and silver, so that whoever hrlnits u bur^of gold or a bar of sliver lo the mint may^; receive back Its eoui\aleiH in dollars.^Then honest bimetallism means some^^thing more than this; it means that both^mt'lal-. ^'hall be used alike without dis^^crimination, fear or favor of either mei.il.^It meiins very much, it mcun.^ the grand^^est kind of confidence that the people can^possibly express in the coins of the coun^^try; It meiMis that this opinion s'mII MJ^that every dollar Is on honest dollar, and^la Ing an honest dollar It shall Ik- used^honestly; It mean-- confidence In the^stamp of the govcrnmenl on a piece of^1 gold or a pine of silver, ami it means^I inch confidence as Americans have in the^j American Hag. The Amcrtt an flag Is the^embbm of the country. Kvcry right arm^j should stand hare, sword In hand, to de-^1 fend the American money, the American^dollar. The Hag Is no more sacred than^the stamp of tIn* government on the^j money of the realm. How righteous would^1 i^ the Indignation against anyone who^j should propose to strip the stars and^I stripes out of the Mag; why not be as In-^1 dignaut at those who undertook to 'trike^1 down silver out of the monetary system^of the Vnunlry-.' Kvtiy man In business^knows to-day fhat If the silver dollars had been used just .is the gold dollars^l were used by Harrison's and t'levelatld's^' ;^dminlstrattons there would have been^no cry against the stiver dollar. It was^the dishonest blows of the agents of the^government Itself against Its own coins.^; like a father striking with a haIIletx In^j hand the heads of his own children, [he^coins of the laud should be as sacred to^the government as the life ami limbs of^children arc to fathers. Thereis more real honest conlidinee rx-^ptessed to-day In France and ^icrm.iny,^Lugland and Austria, in the sll\cr money^that hejits the stamp of the government^than there has been by the last two ad-^ministrations ol our own country. Thefirst duty of ihe present adminis^^tration, if It deatres honestly to s^ ^ ure^I bimetallism, is to begin at home by using^the sliver dollar Jusl as It uses the gold^dollar, by insisting that the government^Itself shall choose which metal It will pay^debts in. Nothing would secure sin h con-^tldem e in Kuropcan governments towards^international bimetallism as to have the^present administration show Its coiifl-^deme In silver money by using it jUe't as^It uses gold in paying debts. Nothing ia^made valuable by disuse. Wesincerely hope that the monetary^i t mmisston appointed by President Mi -^Kluley may be successful in securing an^honest and capable International congress,^which will carry out the express will of^the people of the I'nited Htates at the^last election In favor of bimetallism. Time^will tell, however, whether the adminis^^tration is sincere or not In Its appoint^^ments to office to the high positions of^ambassadors and consulships.
