Denver. Col., May II. The Hon. lllehnrd
1' lil.iiid, the Missouri cN-eongrossninn,
opetud his Colorado lecture tour In this
cuy to-night. An niidlenie that lllled the
spa. Ions ltioadway theater greeted the sil
ver champion, who was happily Introduced
bv Senator Teller, with long continued iip
p!auc and gave the closest attention
throughout his address, tho delivery of
which occupied nearly two hours. It was
a notnble fact tlt.it fully half of those In
ntlendaneo were women.
"1 have chosen for my subject," s.ild Mr.
Itland, after acknowledging his magnificent
reception, "'The Fight of Twenty Years In
Congress for the Tree Coinage of Silver
and the Tight Yet to Come.' This IS the
llrst time I have eer visited a silver min
ing state since this twenty year battle b
gan. I have no Intetest whatever In the
st.ite't. producers of the precious metals,
and no sympathy for them heond the In
terest and sympathy 1 have in our com
Others l.nsn lli'slites Miner.
"The losses you silver producers have
sustained on account of the demonetization
of silver are not to be compared with the
losses of the farmers of .Missouri In tho
fall of prices of farms and the products
of the soli, consequent, as we believe, to
the demonetization of silver."
.Mr. Itland prefaced his review of the
twenty years' battle for sliver with an ac
count of the manner In which Its demone
tization was accomplished and gold estali
Ilshed as the unit of value by the act of
"While It Is evident," he said, "from the
manner In which this revolution In our
monetary system was accomplished, it was
done In an Indirect and stealthy manner,
yet It was the most Important and far
reaching legislation on money ever enacted
by our government."
Attempts to Iteiuonetle Mttcr.
The lecturer then reviewed fully all the
attempts made In congress to remonotize
silver, alter the effects of the act of 1S7.1
became known. He said the free coinage
bill of IS77, which was vetoed by President
Ilnvei. was voted for by Mr. Carlisle, of
Kentucky, now secretary of the treasury:
Mr. Poster, of Ohio, who was secretary of
the tro.iMirv under Mr. Harrison's admin
istration: Mr. Herbert, now secretaiy of
the nnvy; .Mr. McKlnley, now governor or
Ohio; Mr. .Mills, of Texas, now senator
ft om that state, and Mr. Mnnlson, of Illi
nois, now interstate commerce commis
sioner. "The fact," added Mr. Bland, "that most
of these gentlemen. If not nil of them, have
changed their views on this question,
should be attributed to the uncertainty of
litinjan opinion nnd the artlon of public
men, for surely tbe necessity of silver res
toration Is as meritorious and uigent now
as It was then."
Regarding the repeal of tho Sherman sil
ver law, Mr. Bland said:
