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
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.
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.

Tbh only comment on Tub Onto sale to
Mr. Ferguison Is that tbe democratlo can
dldate spent $100 foolishly. Albuquerque
The only barm Tub Optic wishes
'he CUieen Is that it will reooive the
$1,000 yet due from Catron j besides
tbe $500 already paid, and tbe costs of
oourt, for tbe publication of tbat edito
rial, defamatory of tbe oourtt ot tbe
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'. "

A Stringent Law.
To the Editor, of the Optic :
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.

None But Ayer's at the World's Pair! I
" Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the ex
traordinary distinction of having been
tne only oiooa punner allowed an ex
hibit, at the World's fair, Chicago,
Manufacturers of other Sarsaparillas
sought by every means to obtain a
showing ot their goods, but they were
all turned away under the application
of the rule forbidding tbe entry of
patent medicines and oostrums. 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 "

We wish to state to tbe good people of
La Vegas and vicinity, that tbe means to
build tbe Sanitarium have been provided
for, but we are without means to furnish
the building. We have concluded, there
fore, to hold a fair during Thanksgiving
wees, to raise iunas witn wnicn to lurnisn
the buildine. We are dependent on the
generosity of tbe publio to accomplish this
purpose; and desire to state tbat we do not
expect to get tbe necessary amount by
large donations, but by tbe mite from the
miny. Hence, we hope tbat none will re
fuse to assist us. This is a publio institu
tion by which all will be benefited, and in
which all ehould feel an interest.
