NOMINATED BY THE DEMOCRATS. NOMINATED BY THE POPULISTS. ENDORSED BY THE SILVER REPUBLICANS THURSDAY EVENING, OCT. 8, 1898. SPECIMEN ARGUMENTS. The New York World makes a very lame effort to compare the bond syn dicate. which made 810,000,000 or more, by the connivance of the nation' al administration, in purchasing the bonds of the government at less than their market value and selling them again at that value to compare this nefarious transaction with a mythical organization which the World desig nates as the "Silver Mine Syndicate;1' and which, it says, made $146,000,000 out of the American people. The lan guage of the World is : Tbe Silver Mine Syndicate bas already forced tbe government to enact two silver purchase seta, under which tbe government has purchased. In round numbers, 460,000, 000 fine ounces ot silver, ter which it paid la round numbers $464,000,000: and that silver was wortb, as bullion, In 1895, $318,- 000,000, so tbat the government bas already paid a tribute to the Silver Trust of about $146,000,000, dead loss to the people. Tbe Silver Trust now seeks an annual profit for itself, at tbe people's expense, of at least $40,000,000 per annum. It demands ,. an absolute monopoly for itself, of tbe privilege of making money in tbe United States, How more untruths and ' absurdities could be crowded into the same num. ber of words, would puzzle the late Baron Munchausen himself. In the first place, there is no "Silver Trust", or "Silver Mine Syndicate" Such is a mere creation of the World writer's imagination. It is a gold-bug ' booeaboo, made to frighten nninform ea people in tne east. A trust is a combination of Interests to control the ' price and production of any designated product. It shuts out small dealers, and raises or lowers the price of its commoditv at will. Has this ever been done in the oase of silver, or is it proposed to do it now P On the con trary, it is demanded tbat the govern- ment fix the price of silver, so that it cannot be raised or lowered, and that the ooinBge of tbe silver product be free and unlimited to all. Nothing could be more opposed than this, to the very fundamental idea of a trust; and when the World talks about a "Silver Trust", the writer is simply talking through his bat. ! Again, the statement that ' because ; the silver was purchased at $464,000,- 000, and in 1895 was worth only $318, 000,000, therefore the government paid a tribute to the silver ' trust of about $146,000,000 this is one of the bald; est of bald-headed absurdities,- one of ' the most audacious of falsehoods: 'The government never bought ah ounce of silver for more than its market ".valiig, at the time of purchase.-" That this ' silver afterwards declined in value, Was no fault of those who sold it. It was the fault of the government, in that, It , demonetized silver and repealed the -two silver purchasing laws. But no one, other than a fool or a knave,' can contend that those who sold silver to tbe government, at market value, made the amount of the subsequent decline, Bmitb sells Jones a horse for $100, the ' market ?alue of the animal. After, wards, because of bad treatment by Jones, the boree declines in value till ' -- - -i it cannot be sold for more than $60 Will any one short of an Idiot lay ttjat Smith made tbat ' (50 out of ' Jones t Yet'iuobj preel'ely, is tbe World's arT gument. Then, too, It may be" said tbat this argument ia fully at good and true as nlneiy-nlne-one-huDdreths of the arguments advanced by tbe enemies of tllver. ' Furthermore, "the'fpord artfully oonceals the" aot that" if tbe government would now ooln the silver, which as bullion decreased $140,000, 000 In value, or would issue silver oer tifioates upon it, every ounoe would now be wortb its purchase price or more. Tbe dishonesty of tbe World's argument is thus made apparent, j ' But another utterance ot the World it equally as untrue. It asserts that the "Silver Mine Syndloate" forced tbe government to enaot tbe two ailyer purobasing acts, by .which the $14J, 000,000 were made out of the people Now, John Sherman was the author of the last of these laws the man who demonetized silver and depredated Its value. Would he propose a law for the benefit of tbe "silver trust "Cer tainly not. Mr. Sherman himself tells us why be introduced the Sherman pur obasing law. It wks no I In the 'inter est of tbe "Silver Mine Syndicate." jit was not to put money Into the pockets of the "silver trust." It was not In any sense for the purpose set forth by tbe World. Mr. Sherman Bays lt was to prevent the free Coinage of sil ver," and be certainly ought to know. Thus is another ot the World's state ments shown to be groundless. ' But the pionaole of folly and false, hood is reached in the concluding statement of the World that tbe "silver trust" now seeks for itself a profit of $40,000,000 per annum, at the people'! expense. There are two classes 'of people in the United States, those who. sell money and those. who buy money and tbe latter outnumber tbe former fully 1,000 to 1. Tbe free coinage 'of silver will inorease the quantity of money in the country, and thus reduce its value. But as one arm of the bal anoe oannot go down except as tbe other comes up, so tbe value of money cannot be reduced without the corre ponding increase in value of every thing used for the purchase of money In this category are inoluded all the products of man's hands and brains Such will be enhanced in value by th free coinage of silver, just as they have been depreciated by the single gold standard. Now, if the few thousands, constituting the money sellers, are the "people," in the World's sense of tbat term, the free coinage of silver may seem, at the first glance, to be at their expense; by if by the "people" meant the other hundreds of thousands, who have money to buy, then the declaration is without shadow of truth However, the desperateness of tbe cause may well be gauged by the char aoter of tbe World's argument. MORE MONEY NEEDED. j Tbe enemies of silver attempt to ex plain the stagnation in every line of business, on tbe theory of over-produo tion ; but there is not a man of sense among the purchasing olasses who does not know tbat the reason be does not buy a new suit of clothes, does not add to the oomforts of his home, does not indulge in greater luxuries at bis table, does not give bis wife and children greater relief from labor tbe reason be does not spend more money in every department of trade, is n6t tbat there is an over-production of these things, not that his money will buy more than ever before, but tbat be has n6 money with' which to buy fit any price. ! W - ! ;' What does it signify loa'man hat steamboats - are selling at a dollar apiece, if be has not money ' enough, to buy a single plank P 'it Is the lack ' of money, on the part of the' purohasers, which has closed the factories, and not over-production, as the goldites dairr. Mayor OIney, at the' Bryan silver oiuo, recently gave a good illustration of this. A firmer had lalsed' an un usually large crop "of potatoes, but he found it impossible t& sell a" single bushel, 'after a 'thorough Canvass of the neighboring towns. ' Every one to whom he applied declared ' be bad all the potatoes he needed. - In disgust, tbe farmer gave out tbat any who wanted the potatoes could come and get them for nothing. In two days, the entire crop was gone. Seeing many of those who had told him they had pota toes enough, busily .engaged In carry ing them away, be naturally inquired how it was -they . now Vanted theml They candidly confessed 4that 'the real son for not buying wasrthe ant?of money and not the want of the' pot al toes. It was lack ot fdnds, and tool over-production at all, , which. had destroyed the farmer's market. . Let us have more money', thenj and business will revive in every 'department. The only way to increase the circulation is by the fr7.;fcnge ofjjfiyer, which all New Mexicans should vote for. . . - c; Thk Optic bad but tbe one course to pursue in the present campaign nnd lt is pursuing it, without the promise of pay, or the hope of reward. It's a matter of prinolZe, and not prinoljpa?, with us, this year. Evert candidate will be thankful when election day comes. " So will the people.

Thi ticket nominated by tbe San Miguel county republicans, to-day, promises to be a good one. Let as much be said of the platform on wblcb they stand'. " . i . ; . ; . A Stringent Law. To the Editor, of the Optic : 1 East Las Ykqas, N. M.f October 8th, A. D. 1896. Perhaps it would be well to call tbe voters' attention to the (allowing law : "It any person offers, or gives, any money, properly or other bribe, to any qualified voter of this Territory to induce nim to vote for or against any person or question, or abstain from voting at any of the prescribed elections, suob person and the persons receiving said bribe, or In. duoement.on conviction, shall he sentenced lo pay a fine of Dot less tahn $50, or be im prisoned for a term not less than six months, and shall be forever disfranchised and disqualified from voting and holding oiuce in new Mexico." Of course, this doesn't prevent bon est politicians ironi hiring screamers to go into a cauous. Voter.

Tbe decision of tbe World's fair authorities In favor ot Ayer's Sarsaparilla was in effect as follows: "Ayer's Sarsaparilla is not a patent medicine. It does not belong to the list of nostrums. It is here on its merits " , One of the most interesting games of base ball was played on the Poralta grounds at Belen for forty dollars a side, between tbe Bjlen nine, consist ing of players from Belen and Los Lunas, and tbe Peratta nine, consist ing of players from Peralta and Valen cia, tbe Belena oommg out victorious by the score of 14 to 10. When any part of the, body isn't doing the work that nature intended it to do, it puts the whole sys tem out of tune out of harmony. Sickness in one part of the body is likely to run into all parts of the bodv. When child ren stand a row of bricks on end, they knock the whole row down by up setting one brick. That is exactly wht happens to the health when tne bow els fail to perform their proper function. Consti pation makes trouble all along the line puts tbe liver out of order, ia bad for the kidneys bad for the stomach. It holds in tbe body poisonous matter, and because it cannot go any place else, it gets into the blood. The blood carries it all over the sys tem. That makes sluggishness, lassitude, bad breath and foul taste in the mouth, fills the stomach with gas and causes windy belching, stops digestion in the stomach, causes sour stomach, heartburn and head ache. You can avoid all such trouble, for Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets curb con stipation and its attendant evils.
