A. I). lS9u. A. B. MrOAFFRY. | (Seal.) Secretary of State. Campaign of Prejudice. The campaign has hardly commenced yet, in fact there will bo very little clone before September, but the reaction baa net in. The free silver cry went over the country like a wave of the ocean, bearing on its erect the banner alleging “prosper ity to nil,” and it was very “catching.” If the election could have been held a week after the Chicago convention, Bryan might possibly have carried the country. Hie “crown of thorns and cross of gold* might potunbly have won for him the presidency, but four inonlha of investi gation is more than his.record will stand and from present indications it is now only a question of the majorities for McKinley. Kven his metaphor, “crown of thorns and cross of gold.” is found to have been stolen from a speech mode iu the House of Representatives not very long ago by a much abler man. Congressman McCall. All of the eloquent speeches he has made are found to lx* extracts from thoughts expressed by other men. It appears he carries a memorandum book and when ever he heurs actus man make a gootl sj-eech, he jots down all the good points and soon th.*v api*e;»r uguin in a carefully prepared article purporting to be his own production. The trouble that now confronts the demo populist party is that Mr. Rryan. the Chicago platform and free silver will not l»eur investigation. It is all theory based entirely npou promises, air castles it might bo termed. Four years of theory | has made a suffering people suspicious, j Not a single argument do they give that is not in direct coudict with every prin- i oiple of souud business,sound judgment, sound common sense. Mb. Hhtasi's Ovx States* f.nts arc enough to comlvajn hiu». Four years ago he stumped the country upon tlic tariff question. In speech after speech mails in that campaign, hi* promised: Give us friH* trade aud the wages of American workingmen will go up, hut they went down; give us free trnue ami business will Increase, but it grew beau tifully lean. Now he says: Give u« free silver and prices of all products w ill go up. business will boom, prosperity will come. It is simply another theory he has taken up. aud which for years he has boeu employixl to advocate for a fat sal ary. It I* o|»enly charged in the Omaha papers, that he has for years been em ployed by the silver syndicate to make speeches in favor of free silver, ami ho has never contrauicted it. All over the world free coinage of silver has been tried and faded. Commercial law is us immutable us the law of gravity. Values cannot be controlled by legisla tion, because it is that principle which prompts every man to do in a business w ay . that which hedeemebest to forward his own interest. That is a principle im bedded in the fibre of every human being and cannot be controlled by legislative enactment. If the government cun take fifty cents worth of silver bullion and make one dollar out of it by the government stamp, it can do the same with a ten cent piece. That cannot bo denied by anyone. It I*oll Id also take iron, tin, lead, paper, any thing, aud make some certain amount legal tender for one dollar and compel us to take it in payment of debts. Why not give the farmers a chance and muko u certain nmouut of Wheat Lkoai. Tender for One Do drab. Why give it all to a few silver mine owners. If you propose to make fifty cents of silver one dollar, why not make the parity between the same, dollar for dollar. It will save ware house room and only a few words in the proposed law will accomplish it. The two metals started off equal in value. We read that In the Archaic pe riod gold and silver were of equal value. By the Vedic period silver had fallen o 0 per cent, or gold was 2to 1. They* have never been of equal value since that time, i In the Brahmanic period it had fallen until it was sto 1. In the Buddhic pe riod it was Obj to 1. Through the middle ages it varied in different countries from •1 to Itoloto 1. In 1100 it averaged 10 NUMBER 11. to 1. At the discovery of America it was to 1, but by ltitx) it had fallen to l- 1 * to 1. Between lb'J) and 1650 it fell to 15 to 1, caused by the increase in the production of silver from Peru, Potoei and Mexico. Every principle of common sense is against this fallacy, and they do not give us a single reason that will ’bear a mo ments investigation, it is all theory, ull promises. As a matter of fact the entire free silver argument has dwindled to “Passion and Prejudice.” The old j.opulst chestnut, ‘the money power and the banks,*’ as witness the Denver dailies in general and the Sparks m particular. Very patiently we have studied them all (especially die Sparks) for wme • a d reason how this relief from the thru! idem of the money power was going to come, anti strange as it may appear, last week the Spinks gave us a famt ray of light, in an article about the death of a daughter of Wm. and Joaeph iue Li* near St. Lou is, by starvation caused by the gold stnutiard. The force of the argument nearly doored us. if Keil had i»cen present to explaiu once more h«>w the present stringency in the money market could las done away with, by a Secretary of the Treasury, that would pay out silver, we would probably huve auet. umbed then and tiiere. Wo w ill admit also that the Sparks had another argument last week that pos sessed a great deal of merit in favor of free and unlimited coinage of silver at the rulio of 10 to 1. It was that B. 11. | Brown and C. <’. Goodale, one a hank president, a national bank too, think of ( it; the other one a railroad attor ney, think of that, were present at a j meeting of the state central committee I of the republican party of Colorado, and there and then did vote thni the republicans of thin state should have 1 the privilege, those that desired to, of voting for Wm. McKinley. Worse than all they did this upon a proxy from Ilaca county, which whs given them because the njetubors themselves coukl not at tend. That certainly will convince every voter in this part of the state that free coinage of silver at I*l to 1 is the thing. It is very plain also that they could not have done that under the free and tin i bunted coinage of silver at the ratio of j 1C to 1, l'aseion and prejudice! That is their only argument. Something for nothing the principle plank in their platform, and they expect to win by promises of prosperity to all the people. False to every principle of common sense, they expect to deceive an intelligent, progres sive, enlightened nation as to their real motives, and carry through the most in famous proposition ever conceived in modern times. “Money Power and the Banks!” One of the leading journals in the west places the capital of the syndicate be hind the silver scheme at 547 millions of dollars and gives a carefully revised list of the promoters of it. It also places the profits at the present cost of mining silver at To millions of dollars per annum. It is a startling fact that every promi nent loader is either largely intc-rCf Ud in silver mines, or is employed by this syndicate to spread the silver sentiment. Gen. Warner, president of the bimetallic league, gets a salary of 810,000, and it is publicly charged without denial, that Mr. Bryan is getting 85,000 per unuum from this same syndicate. They will never succeed. The truth will bo placed before the people fairly and plainly during the next three months, and we look for the greatest up heaval in sentiment against it, from the laboring and farming classes who will sc Her the most under a silver standard, without regard to party fealty, that this country has seen since the war. One of the greatest characters in ancient Jewish history, once declared, in an argument over the most powerful thing in the world, “that mighty was the power of the king, and great was the power of woman, but greater than all was truth.’’ Best Cough Syrup.
