PUBLISHED EVERT SATURDAY BT CASSIDY A SKILLMAN. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 19. 1891. WOVKK.NOK HIM. »«*• I'KIK coin AUE. In another column of this iasue of the Sentinel wa reproduce from the New York Herald the speech of Governor Hill of New Y’ork, on the subject of the free coinage of silver, delivered at Elmira a few days before the meeting of the pres ent Congress. Coming from the man it does, considering that he is the Governor of the great State of New York, and a United States Senator elect, it ia the most important contribution to the silver literature of the country that has been given to the public in a dozen years. It is a plain, straightforward and manly talk for the free and unlimited coinage of sil ver. This from the acknowledged leader of the Democratic party right in the heart and the home of the gold bugs, must have tremendous weight in behalf of the silver cause. It shows that Western and Southern interests made a most fortunate exchange in getting the matchless Hill for the prolix Everets. It shows also that Governor Hill is neither owned nor controlled by the Republican and Mug wimp press of the metropolis, nor by the gold bog sentiment of Wall Street. More than this, it places him in the very lead of National Democracy, and in full ac cord and sympathy with all of the poli cies of his party in every section of the Union. The attitude of New York, hith erto, on finance, baa always caused em barrassment to the Democratic party. It was a pivotal State and absolutely es sential to Democratic success. In the hope of carrying it the rest of the coun try has customarily truckled to it. This, Governor Hill tells us, is not necessary. He says in so many words that the Dem ocrats in New York are going to stand shoulder to shoulder with their brethren in the Demooratio States of the Sooth and West. He says further that the free coinage of silver as an issue is of equal importance with a modification of the tariff, and must not under any circom stances be obscured or put to the rear in the coming Presidential campaign. Thai is the talk of a broad gauge statesman in the interest of the whole people. He raises his powerful voice against any dodging or straddling on the silver ques tion. He wants it put to the front as a leading iasue, that the people may Lavs an opportunity to decide for themselves on its merits. In all the years this is what the West, and especially the min ing States, have been clamoring for. Let us now join Governor Hill, and with him at tho head, see whether a majority of the American people are for or against silver as a money metal of equal dignity with gold. The Govornor has performed a magnificent service for ns. He has led the way for a clean out fight for free ooinage all along the line. We do not know whether he is a Presidential candi date or not, but we do know that the West owes it to itself to taka him op and with a vigorous shout of approval and enthusiasm place him in command of all the silver foroes of the country, no mat ter to which party they belong. With Hill’s help in the New York delegation we can get a straightout free coinage plank in the Democratic platform. With Hill at the bead of the ticket we believe New Y’ork can be carried for silver, thus giving us a silver administration. The amall traders and working people and farmers, even in the Empire State, must be favorable to the white metal. We of the West have cause of congratulation in the fact that silver is forcing itself into recognition. The Democratic party at least now gives promise of standing squarely for free and unlimited coinage in the next National contest. We must have candidates who will give effect to the platform. Hill and Boies are a team whose utterances give guaranty that they will stand by the will of the people as expressed at the polls. The West de mands a silver ticket, both in platform and men. THE FOI.ICY DEFINED. The message is very frank upon the silver question, however widely tbe Pres ident’s views may differ from those of a large number of people. He comes out squarely against free coinage, while hop ing for an international agreement where by a definite ratio between gold and sil ver may be established. A great many Republicans will regret that the Presi dent has seen fit to draw the line whieb will doubtless determine the position of the Republican party upon the ques tion.—Sacramento Bee. There is still a chance that something may be done for silver by Congress this Winter. But if nothing be done it is apparent to everybody that the Republi can National Convention next June must inevitably declare against free coinage. About all of the State conventions of that party so declared last Kali. Harrison will unquestionably be the Republican candidate, and in re-nominating him his party must indorse his position. There is hope that tbe Democratio party will give us both a free coinage platform and a free coinage candidate. Should this hope fail os, also, it will become the highest duty of the people of tbe mining States, irrespective of party, to unite in Bonding men to the Electoral College who will abandon all other considerations for the promotion of the cause of silver. Po litical parties are close in this country, and the sixteen votes from the mining States might hold the balanoe of power in naming the President. We ooold not lose anything by making the experiment. On the oontrary we bring our cause all the more prominently before the country and in tbe end force a just recognition of it. ^ Providence, Rhode island, elected a Democratic Mayor tbe other day, for tbe first time since 1854. It is just as well to add " Little Rhody" to the oolumn of doubtful Presidential States. Tom Reed and his scanty following can come and go St will without kicking in the doors. tiik i* k km in earn mkmmauk. The greet dailies have published the President's message. We have not space for even an extended synopsis of it. As a literary production it is hardly op to the average, lo judgment it is neither great nor altogether small. It is (air in places and narrow in others. To write a paper or messago of this character ia one of the easiest tasks in the world. The President has before him the data and re ports of all his Cabinet officers, with their recommendations touching the various branches of the public service. The Sec retary of State deals with our foreigu af fairs, the Secretary of the Treasury treats of the financial situation, and so oc through the list. It does not require phe nominal ability to weave them all to getber into narrative form. Spread the same facilities before any clever newspa per mao and he will write a President a message in three hours, a work which usually occupies the Chief Executive for severs! months.. We are not especially inveighing against President Harrison's ability to write. Our criticism in this regard applies fo ail Presidents. W e are merely explaining that we are never pre pared to gush over anybody's message, knowing how they are made. The great paperswhich are so enthusiastically laud ing Harrison a late message should at the same time laud his Cabinet, because it is the combined work and wisdom of all. The chief point of interest to the people of Nevada in the document is what it contains on the subject of silver. The President ia squarely against free coinage, and repeats all of the old gold bog chest nuts in support of his opposition. He says free silver will drive all of the gold out of the country and produce a mone tary crisis and panic. It seems to ns that we have somewhere heard that same re mark before. It is the President’s guess as to what would happen, that's all, for there ia not a single tangible argument to be adduoed in support of the assumption. On the contrary the demonstrated facts and experience since partial remonetisa tion in 1873 are all against it. But the President is a gold bug and haa as good a right to guess as any other gold bug. None of them ever put forth anything that rises to the dignity of an argument. conncsii'K Now. There are people right here in Nevada who care nothing about silver as an 'ssui in the coming Presidential race. They belong to both parties. There are men for Cleveland and men for Harrison in Ne vada. The National Conventions take place in a little over five months. We care not who goes to either convention, provided the delegates to both go in structed to accept nothing short of sliver men as candidates on unequivocal silver platforms. They should be instructed up to the point of bolting should they fail in securing action favorable to free and unlimited coinage. Then on their return it would be in order for the people, irre spective of party, to inaugurate a move ment having for its sole object the wel fare of silver and the State. We can all unite on silver. All of the mining Staten should pursue the same course. It i» lime' that we began to look to the pro motion of our own interests. All of the other States do it. And to this end mem bers of both parties in Nevada should see to it that no man is allowed to go to either of the National Conventions who is not willing to go under such instruc tions ss we have indicated. It is time that the people began to disouss these matters among themselves. Let the line be drawn and see to it that none but un swerving silver men ere placed on guard. We are utterly opp' .od to the people of Nevada trailing in the wake of Eastern politicians and accepting without a mur mur whatever the East may choose to give them. The party that will not give us silver men and measures deserves to be spurned with indignation by the vo ters of this State. If neither party in their National Conventions gives full recognition to the just claims of silver, then kick them both overboard. If it comes to that the silver States must in augurate a policy of their own. The place tooommence it is at home and the time now. Let the people be on the alert and ready for action when the hour arrives. This is not a partisan appeal. We address both parties for the common good and in the highest interest of our languishing commonwealth. It is not politics, but silver that we speak for. Are the people of Nevada ready and will ing to help themselves? HUT 1VA1UBLIS. If any one auppoaea that the election of tbe Speaker will have any effect on the Democratic nomination for Preaident, ao far aa leaaeniog the proapect of Mr. Cleveland’a nomination, they commit an error of judgment. While it may be con ceded that here and there there ia oppo aition to him within the party, and that there are a number of prominent men in that category, the overwhelming aenti ment of tbe Democracy ia in favor of hia .name being placed at the bead of the ticket.—Grace Valley Union. We do not believe that a majority of the Democratic party ia for the re-nomi nation of Mr. Cleveland. There ia a large element in the party that ia not only not zealoua for him, but ia poeitively and ag greaaively againat him. It ia idle to talk about running him. He might by a great acratcb win the fight by carrying the South, New York, New Jeraey, Connec ticut and Indiana, but on no other line would he atand tbe ghoat of a ahow. He cannot carry a aingle State weat of Indi ana, while a candidate favorable to ailver would atand an even chance of carrying tbe Statea named aa well aa from forty to fifty electoral votea in the Weat. Why not chooee a candidate who will embrace the whole field and all of the chancee of aucceae. Why narrow the fight to four doubtful Statea? It ia the political man agement of infanta to do anything of the kind. Dan Carpenter, brother of the late Senator Matt Carpenter of Wiaconain, and one of the beet-known mining men in Montana, died at Great Falla laat week from paralyaia, cauaed by a clot of blood OB hia braiB. VKBY YAWt B. A New York paper professes to have established the fact that no free coinage bill can be passed by the new Congress over the President’s veto. It was hardly worth while to go to so much trouble. No one sappoeed such a thing to be pos sible. But is it certain that the Presi dent would veto a free coinage bill T Be fore such a measure can be passed it is not unlikely that the Government’s effort to secure an international agreement for the restriction will have been successful. —Republican Paper. President Harrison also talks about an international agreement, and then adds that the state of foreign sentiment is not favorable to such a proposal at this time. Of course, it is not and never will be. It is to Ragland's interest to kcop the price of silver down—the lower the better— and the is no more likely to enter into an arrangement to put it up than a criminal is to try, convict and execute himself for murder. All of the talk about the set tlement of the question by the concur rence with the United States, of Eng land, Germany and other foreign pow ers, is the silliest kind of nonsense. It is only the device of the gold hugs to de lay action at home. The people of the United States have the whole matter in their own hands. England must have silver for her Indian trade, and she must get it from the United States. The only question is, shall we sell it to her at 33k per cent discount, or compel her to pay par for it. Thia is the whole case in a nutshell. Free coinage means par both at home and abroad. THE COMMODITY ACT, Does the President stop to think that even from the gold bag point of view thr present bullion commodity silver law if worse than free coinage. It piles up in the Treasury practically as nufth silver as would be placed there under free coin age, while failing to raise the price of silver, or in any manner closing up the gap between gold and silver. It is not the bulk but the price that is desired. The value of silver can only be enhanced by giving to it the full monetary func tion. Any legislation that loses sight of this important factor is worse than no legislation at all. The President maker the point in his message that the present silver law was at the time of its passage satisfactory to the friends of silver. It must have been satisfactory to the Re publican silver men, because they voted for it, but it was never approved by the Democratic advocates of the white metal because they voted against it. There was more Republican politics than friend ship for silver in the commodity law. The bill was simply passed to save thr mining States to the Republican party in the then pending elections and to re-elect Jones, Teller and others to the Senate. The bill was not passed by the votes of the friends of silver, but by those of its enemies. All told in both Houses, there were not twenty free coinage men who supported the Sherman commodity Act. The passage of the bill was not the work of the friends of silver, and the President has no right to charge it upon them. “ l.ET ’EM 1IDWI,.” Tha Ksstinki. heartily subscribes to the subjoined article from the Reno Jour nal: The remonetization of Bilver con cerns thisState more than anyand all other questions of an economic character now before the people. It means prosperous times, employment for thousands, and a home market for the products of the farm and the dairy. Our efforts should there fore be directed toward securing it, and no better way has been suggested for do mg that than for the whole people of the State to act in concert and choose Presi dential eleotors and a Congressman who will not be bound by party ties or name, but will give their votes for the candi dates and the measures that promise most for the interests of the State; that is for the free and unlimited coinage of silver. Tens of thousands of men have aban doned party and declared themselves free and independent politically for the publio weal, and Nevadans will be sim ply following their example if they place the welfare of the State above party as deudancy by electing independent elec tors and Congressmen. The Bosses and their organs and the place hunters will of course, objoot, as they do every po litical movement that is calculated to benefit the publio, but in the expressive language of Jerry Simpson, “ Let ’em howl." M1LVKB l-KUIHLATION. Congressman Bland—Silver Dick, aa he ia called—will introduce a free ailver coinage bill in the Houae after the com mittees are appointed. It will he very muoh like the one which paaaed the Sen ate at the laat seaaion, but whioh got stranded in the Houae. Bland aaya: " The fluctuations in the price of ailver during the paat Summer will not have any effeot on the friends of free coinage. To night I see that Kogland haa ordered JEl,000,C«Tbf ailver coined. Thia will raise the price of sliver here, and if to morrow the order was countermanded silver would fall again. When a free coinage ailver bill ia paaaed, then the price will cease to fluctuate. The ailver question will be fought harder in the coming Congress than it baa ever been fought before.” Senator Stewart haa also introduced a free coinage bill. About all of the Dem ocrats in both Houses, and a few West ern Republicans, will vote for a measure of the character indicated. But there aits B. H. with the laat say. It ia earn estly to be hoped, however, that a free coinage bill will be ahoved under bis nose. In the Washington dispatches of a Re publican paper it ia said that “the social events of the White Houae the coming season will exceed in brilliancy anything witnessed daring this administration.” The Harrison administration does well to make the most of ita present opportuni ties for merriment. After the great American voter haa been heard from on the evening of November 8, 1882, there will be no more real rejoicing in the White House until the Democratic Pres ident moves is. I.Ot t.Kt<>H HIM.. Hr Hectare* for frw « olnagr of Silver. Governor Hill ol New York addreeaed the David B. Kill Club of Elmira on the evening of the 4th inat., on "The Issues for 1832." In defiuiog hie position on the eilver ifueation he laid: ••The Democrats of Now , York stsnd fast for sound finance. They demand that avery dollar coined in the United Slates shall be the cqnal of another dollar ao coined. They demand more. They de mand that every silver dollar coined hitherto or hereafter shall be the equal of the present gold duller, onr present unit of value, weighing 25 8 10 Troy grains of standard gold, and not ono cent—not one mill less worth than that gold dollar. ••The Democrats of New York cannot accept the lead of the silver Slate Sena tors. Free eilver coinage wonld satisfy them. Bat free bimetallic coinage ia the one thing needful. The Democrats of New York, in their platform, condemn the abiding Iron) ono monometallism to tbe other monometallism; we firmly mark the insufficiency of either gold monometal lism or silver monometallism; we pro nounce fur tbe free coinage of gold, coupled with the free coinage of silver; we denonnoe tbe Sherman law as a false pretence and artful hindrance of a return to free bimetallic coinage. '• Through the last session of the last Congress the Republicans condncted their whole policy with a view to separate the Democrats of New York on the free bime tallio coinage question from the Demo crat* of all the other Domooratic Slates in the West and Snath, and so snatch Repub lican •aalvaiiun in neit year’* elections and save }he Presidency, thongb all else were lost, inoluding honor. Rat onr Democrat ic Convention crashed that orafty schome and crushed the bndding hopes of its con trivers. ********* * * " The Democratic party is now a unit far free bimetallio coinage, and New York has refused to be disjoined from the bard money doctrine professed by the Democrat ic Benatorial body and supported by the Democratic party in all the great Utates of the West and South. “ What is the test of 'intrinsic value' in a dollar ? That melting it shall make no loss. 11 The silver dollar of Allison, the silver dollar of Sherman, cannot now abide the test of instrinsio value. It cannot pass the ordeal of tire. “ What is the test of equality between the dollar coined of gold and the dollar ooined of silver ? That both alike, after being coined at the mint and then melted in the orncible, shall equally make no loss. " Free coinage given to gold, while free coinage was withdrawn from silver in 1873. establised the varying inequality of the dollar in silver to the dollar in gold Free coinage given to both, free bimetallic ooinage, will re-establish their ancient and unvarying equality, attested by the mint, the market and the cruoible. " Did ever anything but free bimetallic coinage down to 1873 make our gold and silver dollars equal by every test? Did ever free bimetallic coinage down to 1873 for one hour fail to make the silver dollar equal to the gold dollar, whether at mint or crucible or in any market in the wide world ? "Secretary Foster's one word in bis Chamber of Commerce Bpeech was ‘parity,’ as President Harrison’s one word was ‘eqdhlity,’ of all dollars. "But to maintain a parity implies the existence of a parity. No parity exists between the two. Melt the gold coin and it can be recoined again and again a gold dollar for its private owner, because gold has free coinage and twenty-five and eight-tenths Troy grains are the fixed weight of the gold dollar. "Meltthe silver coin and it oannot be coined for its private owner. It can be told to the Treasury but for seventy-five cents or less, because silver has not free coinage, though 412 H Troy grains of sil ver are indeed, the present weight of the »tlTM dollar. TUB so-callvO -parlvy* ot vba Sherman Silver law is a mendacious parity, and the orncible mocks the false pretences of ‘equality’ by President Harri son and of ‘parity’ by Secretary Foster. "The two metals co existing and are somewhere current and coinable into full legal tender money, about as muoh of one as of the other. Neither is capable of in flation, as every other sort of currency is, the annual percentage of increase to the existing aggregate being extremely small, and of oourse diminishing with every year’s increase of tbat great aggregate. Free bimetallic coinage practically unites the two money metals into one money metal with the utilities of both.” * * * * ******* "It is politics for babes and sucklings to preach tbat the gold and silver question should be kept out of the Presidential election. But let us not change the issue made by the Billion Congress and the peo ple’s votes in 1890. " It is politics for oowards and strad dlers to advise and contrive that the Demo cratic National Convention's trumpet next Bummer shall blow some uncertain sound. "Let ns not now shift the issue. Bball the white coin remain but a seventy five cent Repnblioan dollar and all our dollars ere long become such, or shall the Demo cratic party be commissioned to make every silver dollar of the United States the equivalent of onr present gold dol lar and we be tested by our works? "Tbat is the one plain issue oreated by the Sherman Silver law of the Billion Congress. Can there be a plainer issue or a better? Democratic speakers on every stump from Maine to Texes will be abund antly equipped for irrefutable argument with one silver dollar and a melting pot. The crucible teat is a crucial test for soft money men and for gold monometallists. "Hold and silver are the only money ab solutely incapable of inflation; hence their supreme merit. When Democratic men and measures are premoting the straight forward approximation of gold and silver to their old historic ratio, the silver dollar to the level of the gold dollar, as I dare to say they can and will, there will be no moment when business bugaboos can be gin to be born.” Oovernor Hill was vigorously applauded all through bis speech. Tbe Mail and Kxpress places the sap porters of Hill and Cleveland respect ively as follows: “Tammany Hall and tbe vajj majority of the country Democ racy are fur Hill. A few interior dis tricts and the bulk of the Brooklyn De mocracy, with tbe County Democracy of New York City, are for Cleveland. The great Democratic political machine in this State is on the Governor's side. Tbe State Committee is almost unanimously for him, and all the wires that radiate from the Kxecutive Chamber, and the chief sources of patronage, are controlled by the cunning hand of the Governor." The Supreme Court of California has declared the Grand Jury of San Fran cisco to be an illegal body. The decision was a five to two affair, DeHaven and Sharpstein dissenting. Chief Justice Be atty “straddles'' the question, but main ly goes with the majority. The decision in chief was written by Judge McFar land, who, prior to being elected to the Bench was a railroad attorney and lob byist at Sacramento. The California boodlera of both high and low degree can now laugh and grow fat. Secretary Foster is “now out of dan ger,'' but the “ net cash balance” of the Treasury isn't. It is in the last stages Of galloping consumption. THIS BOTTOM FACT**. As we surmised at the time, there waa a great deal of rreaidential polities in the late contest for the Speakership of the Hoose of Representativea. Duscueaing, or rather commenting on the result of the battle the New York Herald says: All this balloting has been worse than useless. The object of the contestants has not been to elect a fitting and well equipped chairman simply, but to push the claims of Mr. Cleveland or Mr. Hill in the coming Presidential campaign. The fight was waged in the interest of a favorite candidate who stood in the back ground, but who hopes to come to the front next year. In other words, the sole purpose in view has been to tell the people of this oountry that they shall vote on this and that issue, for this or that man, in 1892, and for no other issue and no other man. The caucus was divided into Cleveland and Hill camps and wss engaged in noth ing more nor less than a struggle to jam down the throats of the country the can didacy of two men, each of whom iaplan ning to spend the next-four years in the White House. The people already see through the game and have become restless. They are not to be led like a bull with a ring in his nose. They have minds of their own and have a way of expressing their Opinions at the polls. The feeling is abroad that the personal ambition of Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Hill may seriously split the Democratic party. It would therefore be folly to take the hazard with either at a time when a new man, a man from the West, would unite all factions and lead the party to a sure success. _ » hii« Plus Scrip.
