16 AN 0?IS LETTER To Mr. A. B. Humphrey, Secretary National Republican league of the United States. Yours of March the 8th la at hand, which I read with pleasure. Tou say: "I was very glad to receive a letter from a man who has the courage to Bay thatiie la a member of the Farmers' Alliance, but believes In honest money. It seems strange that so many men are led Into the belief that a 70 cent dollar la as good 4ta a 100-cent dollar." Well, I am only one among many who believe in honest money; In fact, it is one of the cardinal principles of our order, but we may dif in what it takes to constitute an honest dollar. You speak of a 70-cent dollar. We cannot conceive of such a thing any more than we can of a 24-Inch yard stick. We have been taught from our boyhood that It takes 100 cents to make a dollar. But you say there Is only 70 cents' worth of silver in a silver dollar. I assert that the silver has not depreciated, but, on the contrary, gold has appreciated so that it would be more proper to say that a gold dollar is a 140 cent dollar. Do you want proof of this statement? Turn to pai?e 53 of the campaign docu ment you was kind enough to send me and read under the title of the "Princi ples and Policies of the Republican Par ty." You surely will not refuse a dose of your own prescription: For es silver his been taken out of Eu rope's coinage the demand for gold has enormously grown, and grown in a propor tion much greater than the supply. Meas uring both metals by the standard of com moditiee, it is substantially true to say that gold has appreciated more than silver has depreciated. Ia the silver using nations silver will buy almost as much of everything except gold as it would ten or a dozen years ago, and thin faot sustains the demand for "cheaper" money. The advocates of a gold standard allege that the value of gold is in trinsic, aud that a certain amount of gold having a fixed value should be the standard of exchange. This would be all well enough if anyone were able to insure that the supply of gold would continually increase in a ratio with the increasing demand for it caused by a growing population and commerce, but as a matter of fact it is decreasing in that ratio, and therefore a man who ten years ago contracted a debt which might then have been discharged with 1,000 bushels of wheat must to-day pay more than 1,000 bushels to get himself free. The capitalist can increase his wealth by simply converting it into gold, putting it into a vault and holding it idle for a series of years. At the end of ten years it will buy more provisions and more labor than it would when he stored it; as the supply of gold contracts ever) body must work harder to get it.. Measured in gold, all obligations have thus increased in a very short t'me. The credit class therefore enjoys a vast ad vantage over the debtor class. The men who work for their living, and who consume their earnings year by year, are plaoed in a most unfair position. Does not the above quotation sound poetical to you? I suppose you do not issue such "calamity howls," except for distribution here In the west. This re minds ua of the free coinage platform which the Republicans of our (Seventh) congressional district endorsed two years ago to "catch suckers," but the "suckers would not bite." Yee, I am for "honest money." But honest money la not "gradually enhanc ing in value." I have distributed your pamphlets, and I wish I had one ia every family In the state. We could bury the twin tariff tooters out of sight thla fall. Why do you not make war on the nickel currency also, as it only contains 19 cents of intrinsic value to the dollar? You see that the Republican party, by Its legisla tion, has taught ua that the value of money depends upon its volume and on its legal tender qualities, and not on its intrinsic value. Yours for honest money, B. F. Morland. P. 8. Tell your friend Clarkson that I am also from Iowa, and have taken les sons on the finance questions from that true patriot and hero, James B. Weaver, whom I expect to support for president this year. B. F. M. Kepple, Kan., April 10, 1892.

My father sent me Tee Advocate, and I have been giving it to one and another as soon as I read it Now, I never have Joined the Alliance or People's party, but I want to tell you I am with you, heart and soul. I had been thinking all the time that there would not be any ticket in this country, but, sir, I was badly mis taken. I was at Corn Hill the other day, and I found that at least nine out of every ten will vote the People'a party ticket. Some of the preachers are talk ing it up for the People'a party. The party must win; it can't help it, because it is just and right God grant that all of the working men north and south may bury the past and unite and sweep such men as Sherman and Ingalls out of ex istence. Now, I am no scholar, and can not write much, but I can talk some, and I can pray, and I will for the success of the People's party. May The Advocate long live to defend those It has helped to put Into office, and help them to do their duty. Yours for reform, A. Seymour. Gabriel Mills, Tex., April 19, 1892.
