THE CAUSE OF SILVER. An Appeal to the People to Take It Up. Populist Congressmen Issue an Address. Senators Jones and Stewart Among the Signers. It Appears That Both Have Gone Into the Popntlet Cftmp-Uoluarn and Currency Matters— Wash ington Ooaalp. By the Associated Preis. Washington, Nov. 4.—The Populist members of congress today issued an address appealing to the people to take up the silver cause. It is significant that the name of Senator Jones of Ne vada appears among the signers of tbe document. The address calls attention to tbe fact that the arte require almost the total gold production, and saya the decrease in the volume of this metal, caused by hoarding, bap caused it to ap preciate 40 to 60 per cent. The address continues: "The repeal of the purchasing clause of the Sherman act destroys silver as money of ultimate redemption, and has reduced the metal to credit money to float only by redemption in gold. The $1,100,000,000 of paper and silver now in circul<tion must rest upon less than $100,t;00,-000poldinthe treasury as avail able for redemption. The only reason for demonetizing silver was to enhance the value of gold and obligations paya-. b!e in money. It is further proposed to sell bonds of the United States and buy gold to strengthen the reserve in the treasury. The national banks will ÜBe the bonds for banking, and increase their notes, upon which the people must pay interest, aa well as on the bonds." It is asserted that the secretary oi the treasury surrendered the option to pay silver to exporters, without considera tion, and then proclaimed that the Sher man act was driving gold ont of the country. The address asserts that the Sherman act interferred with tbe establishment of a gold standard, and tbe New York and London bankers and the present administration in the United States and in tbe Gladstone government in Eng land, conspired to force its repeal. Referring to the contest over the re peal bill m the senate the address says: "It continued until tbe gold power and federal patronage could induce a major ity of that body to submit to executive dictation. Tbe gold press in every com mercial center teemed with misrepre sentation, insult and abuse of tbe tin purchasable defenders ot the people. Banks, boards of trade and the com mercial press demanded a vote without debate. The power of money was felt on every hand. Intimidation and threats of personal violence loaded the mails of senators. Unusual and cruel hours were resorted to exhaust the ad vocates of silver and deprive them of opportunities of spreading upon the records their reasons why the people should not be robbed for the benefit of the money-changers." The document ends with an appeal to the people to study the question and with this: "Trust no man who once be trayed you, put no faith in any presi dent who assumed dictatorial power. Do not be overawed or intimidated by Wail street and the power of the na tional banke. When tbe people rise in their might, intrigne, cunning, usurpa tion, bribery and corruption will vanish before them." The paper ia signed by Senators Pef fer, Jones of Nevada, Stewart, Kyle and Allen, and Representatives Davis, Baker, Boen, Bell, Harris, Hudson, Simpson, Pence, Kern and McKeigban. Gen. A. J. Warner, president of the American Bimetallic league, has also issued an addrese which closes as fol lows : "Tbe remedy must be sought at the ballotbox. Retire every representative who has been unfaithful to his trußtand elect only true and tried men to repre sent your interest in the great struggle now before us." DOLLARS OF THE DADDIES. The Actual Itesnmptloo of Sliver Coin age Vet Ordered. Washington, Nov. 4.—ld reply to in quiries it ia stated at tbe treasury de partment that the actual resumption of the coinage of silver dollars has.not as yet been ordered, but the minto have been directed to manufacture ingots and blanks so as to be prepared to resume coinage at short notice in case it shoul 1 be decided to do so. The mints at New Orleaaa and Ban Francisco can, if worked to the full capacity of the forces now at thosie places, coin about two mil lion silver dbllars a month, said an offi cial of the treasury department today. There will mot bo any coinage of silver dollars at the Philadelphia mint for some time to come, he continued, as all the efforts-of the force now there are concentrated an turning out gold coin. The seigniorage on silver will approxi mate $750,000 per month, the depart ment having paid for the silver pur chased under the Sherman act at the average rate of 92' 2 cents per ounce. In view of tbe expected coinage of sil ver dollars, the question is already asked whether the treasury department can issue treasury notes against the seigniorage, which, if the whole amount of the bullion were coined, would amount to about $50,000,000. An official of the department to whom the question waß put, replied that such notes could not be issued against the seigniorage, and in support of this assertion he quoted the following clause from the Sherman law: •'But jo greater or lesser amount of such (trtv iry) notes ehall be outstanding at any . otic than the cost of the silver bul lion and standard silver dollarß coined therefrom then held in the treasury, purchased by Bttcb notes." He said, however, that seigniorage could be deposited in the treasury and silver certificates issued against it, which would bring about the same result as tie issuance of treasury notes would do. ft) far as increasing the circulating medium is concerned, but they would be redeemable only in eilver, and not in gold and eilver as treasury notes are. It is said the treasury notes issued under the Sherman act which were redeemed in gold from time to time amounted to $52 000.000. Some question has also arisen as to whether any bullion might be coined into subsidiary silver, but the law on this subject ia also explicit, as it re quires that tbe secretary shall each month coin two million ounces of silver bullion, purchased under tbe provisions of the act, into standard silver dollars.
