Bryan Agklntt Bent Mayar. In the house of representatives, on Saturday, January 13. 1894. Hon. Wil liam J. Bryan, of Nebraska, said: "There Is no reason for a bounty on sugar which will not apply to any other agricultural product. If the bounty paid went to the farmer directly, in stead of the manufacturer, he has as much right to ask for a bounty on wheat, oats, or cattle, as upon sugar, beets, or cane; but so much of the bounty ss goes to Nebraska finds Its way. not to the farmers, but to two factories. If the people of Nebraska pay their share of federal taxation, the government collects for the bounty from ail the people of Nebraska about S1 §O,OOO, and pays over to two corpora tions 576,ft00. It is thus seen that the a’ate of Nebraska pays out twice as much as It receives, and that, while everybody pays, only the two factories receive. 1 have yet to learn the duly of a representative If I am under any obligation to plead for two sugar fac tories because they receive large sums and disregard the rights of more than a million people because they pay In small amounts. If 1 demand bounties for beet sugar In my state. I cannot op pose bounties and subsidies for indus tries In other statss. and thus, to secure a special advantage for two factories In Nebraska, I must subject the people of that state to a burdensome tax upon everything. "1 dissent, too. from the position taken by some, that we are compelled by a moral obligation to allow the bounty to remain for the period named In the present law. Such a position is wholly untenable. If the Fifty-first congress could pledge the revenues for the government for tlfteen years. It could Just as well pledge them for fifty or a hundred years, and surely no one will say that one congress can thus give a perpetual bounty and impose obligations on subsequent legislatures. The present law provided when the* bounty should terminate, but it could not guarantee Its continuance until that time. If rongrees cannot properly give a bounty directly to the sugar in dustry. neither can It properly Impose s tax upon sugar for the avowed pur pose of protecting the sugar Industry. “IT IS AS EASY TO JUSTIFY A BOUNTY AS A PROTECTIVE TAR IFF. AND IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO JUSTIFY EITHER." "When I was called upon to choose between a tax upon sugar which would raise the price of it to every consumer, and a bounty reduced gradually, 1 chose the latter. I preferred to let the bounty fall by degrees, and ralre the needed revenue In away that. In stead of taxing the poor man as much as the rich man on the same number of pounds of sugar, would make wealth bear its share of the expenses of gov ernment. In other words, 1 would rather give free sugar to the people and make up the deficit by an Income tax." \V 11* rt- t lir> (icrumoi Stand. Of the 502 German newspapers to which circulars were sent by the Ger raau-Ameriean Sound Money League a short time ago, 351 are iu favor cf a gold standard, and only 31 in favor of the free coinage of silver. Over 100 of the 502 German papers have thus far failed to make any reply to the committee’s circular. The party that overlooks the Ger man vote need not worry itself about official responsibility. The Germans constitute hut a small per cent of our politicians, but are an important class on election day. VICTIMS OF CHEAP MONEY. MacanU)’i I>»««-rlpt lon of Tho»« Who Nafftrtd l> j Cllppod Oln*. Free coinage at 16 to 1 la equivalent to clipping from 45 to 50 cents from the present dollar. It would give us a debased dollar of varying value. The world baa had experience with clipped coins. Poorly minted coins during Queen Elizabeth's time made It easy to clip them. Coin clipping was car ried on extensively during the rest of the 16th and during all of the seventeenth century. By 1695. Macau lay tells us, “it could hardly be said that the country possessed, for prac- . tical purposes, any measure of the j value of commodities.” Speaking of the effects upon the I people at large of this debased coin of j uncertain value, this great historian j says that It may well be doubted ' whether all the misery which had been I inflicted on the English nation In a quarter of a century by bad kings, bad j ministers, bad parliaments and bad : Judges was equal to the misery caused I In a couple of years by bad crowns and I bad ahlllnigs." He describes the work ings and effects In the following lan guage: But when the great instrument of ex change became thoroughly deranged, all trade, all industry, were smitten as with a palsy. The evil was felt dally and hourly in almost every place and by almost every class, in the dairy and on the thrashing floor, by the anvil and by the loom, on the billows of the ocean and In the depths of the mine. \ Nothing could be purchased without a dispute. Over every counter there was wrangling from morning to night. The workman and his employer had a 1 quarrel as regularly as the Saturday came round. On a fair day or a mar ket day the clamors, the reproaches, the taunts, the curses, were Incessant, and It was well If no booth was over turned and no head broken. No mer chant would contract to deliver goods without making some stipulation about j the quality of the coin In which he , was to be paid. Even men of business ' were often bewildered by the confu sion Into which all pecuniary transac tions were thrown. The simple and the careless were pillaged without mercy by extortioners, whose demands grew even more rapidly than the money shrank. The price of the necessaries of life, of shoes, of ale. of oatmeal, rose fast. The laborer found that the bit of metal which, when he received It, was called a shilling would hardly, when be wanted to purchase a pot of beer or a loaf of rye bread, go as far os six pence. Where artisans of more than usual intelligence were collected In great numbers, as In the dockyards at Chatham, they were able to make their complaints heard and to obtain some redress. But the ignorant and helpless peasant was cruelly ground between one class which would give money only by tale and another which would take it only by weight.—" Macaulay’s His tory of England.” Will t'ncle Saul Ever H« in Thl* Condi tion?
