The old-tlmera would hare been delight ed with the horee race that took place at the driyinir park yesterday afternoon. There were eix horwa entered and in every beat they were bunched and it took fire heate to decide it. The race had been well advertised in Calumet and Laae Lin den, but not here, and though A. J. Hcotfe Ben waa on the bills Archie did not know anything about it until after dinner. He bad an errand at Hough ton and had Ben hitched to the buggy, and the trip oier and then to the park worked the horee out and he finally captured firat money. All the beats were exciting. Three aulkiee were broken dur ing the afternoon and Buchaine won one heat coming under the wire seated on the axle, the seat having broken down, with hie feet high up In the rests, and with only three spokes left in one wheel. "She was a dandy, dat broke-down," one of the participants declared afterward, and when asked what the others were doing to let Buchaine win in that shape, said "dodging the spokes." The lat two heats were trotted after dark, with only three or four minutes between. Buchaine's Nellie took second money. Some ot the old timers in the copper country were discussing one phase of the political questions of the day recently, that relating to the fall in prices caused, as the sound money men contend, by larger production. One of them cited in stances right here in our midst and which many are familiar with. In the old Cliff mine he said he knew of a caBe of sinking when It took nine miners twelve months to sink 70 feet. This compared with the very hardest sinking now days seems al most incredible. And wages now he added are 30 per cent higher than then. Before the use of high power explosives, sinking In the Tewabic (now the North Qnincy) shaft cost $42 per foot. Upon the introduction of high explosives the cost fell in three months to 1C per foot. Similar facts must be true of silver min ing though perhaps in a less degree. And certainly the same facts are true of the production of all manufactures and the products of the soil resulting from Im proved machinery and which are as little thought of by the people, living in the midst of those Improvements, as is the change in the manner and cost of mining by our own people.

ALTGELD ONFINANCE iCoatiaatd from Fg 2.) hundred minions that afo outtunng U payable In gold. Dut this la not all. The government has taken pains all alontf to tell the world exactly what these bills would be paid In. On March 18, lttfO, congress passed what waa called the "credit Strengthening act," reading as follows: "That the faltb of the United States la solemnly pledged to the payment In coin or Its equivalent of all of the obligation! of the United States not bearing Interest know n as United btatea notes, and all the Interest bearing obligations of the United States, exoept In cases where the law pro vides they may be paid In a currency other than gold or silver." Notice here the specific declaration made In 1869 that both the nonlnterest bearing obligations and the Interest bearing obligations of the United States were payable In coin, gold and all ver. Then, on Jan. 14, 1875, six years la ter, the specie resumption act was passed, to take effect Jan. 1, 1870. It did not pro vide for resuming In gold, but for resum ing In specie, which meant gold and all ver. Matthews Resolution. Three years later, on the 25th day ol January, 1878, the senate passed a resolu tion which h4 become known as th "Matthews resolution," because It waa In troduced by Senator. Matthews, a Repub lican from Ohio, and the house passed tha aame resolution on Jan. 2H. This resolu tion reads aa follows: "That all the bonds of the United Statei issued or authorised to bn Issued under tha acts of congress hereinbefore recited are payable, principal and Interest, at the op tion of the government of the United States, In silver dollars of the coinage ot the United States, containing 412X grains each of atandard allver, and that to restore to Its coinage such silver coins as a legal tender In payment of said bonds, principal and Interest Li not in violation of the pub lic, faith nor In derogation of the rights ol the puhllo creditor. " Consider this resolution a minute. It waa introduced by a Republican and pass ed by both houses of congress, and it ex pressly doclares that all of the bonds al ready Issued and all that may thereafter he Issued under the acts of congress were pay able, principal and Interest, in silver dol lara. This resolution did not change the character of the bonds nor of the obllea tlon. It eould not. It simply declared what was the law at that time that Is, that the government, being the debtor, had the optlou of paving In any kind of money named in the bond. And Inasmuch as tha bonds were payable In coin, and coin meant gold and silver, the government had the right that every debtor has of declaring which money it would ay in. If there had been a misunderstanding alxmt the question before that, there was a notice to all the world. And, mark you, no fault waa found with this; no bondholders complain ed at that time; neither the eastern nor the European bondholders sent their Imnda over and claimed that there waa a misun derstanding. They were not thrown on tha market. There was no talk of repudiation. And If they were payable In sliver then. when was the contract changed so aa to compel ua to pay gold now? A contract has two sides to it, and every Increased ob ligation is supposed to carry with it an In creased consideration. And even if it were true that congress had thereafter by mere resolution declared that all obligations should thereafter be paid In gold, it wonld not make them so payabla Congress, as a matter of fact, never made such a decla ration. Dut if It had it would be void If lt Increased the burdens of the debtor. Sup pose congress had by resolution declared that the holders of those bonds should give to the United States an additional sum ol money to what they originally paid for them. Would the holders be obliged to pay? Kay, would not you have heard an outcry about robboryf If congress could not change the contract with reference to the creditor, it eould not legally change il with reference to the debtor. So yon sue that under the contracts with the creditori and under the declarations of the govern ment mado to the world from time to tiros the bonds and the Interest thereon, as well as the green back a and treasury notes, are payable In silver at the option of the gov era ment. And the eastern bankers so un derstood this all along and wade no com plaint, and It was not until Mr. Harrison was president and Mr. Foster waa secretary of the treasury that tbey broached the sub ject of having these treasury notes redeem ed in gold. This was in 1801. Paying Greenbacks ! Gold. ' From Jan. 1, 1878, to Jan.. 1, 1801, only a little over $34,000,000 of greenbacks were presented for redemption, or an average of a little over $8,500,000 per year. You see there was no run on the treasury then because the policy pursued by the treasury op to that time did not offer a special In docement to make a run on it, but at that time Mr. Foster and the Harrison admin lstratlon yielded to the Influence of the eastern bankers and ordered treasury notes to be redeemed In gold alone, and the Cleveland administration did the same, This was In the fall of 1801, and eee what has happened since then. During the four years following that date $851,000,000 of greenbacks and treasury notes were pre sented for redemption and. redoemed, ana to carry out this policy of redeeming these notes in gold President Cleveland issued the $260,000,000 of bond a Think of this amount I The burdens of the American people Increased $260,000,000 in four years without benefiting the debtor a rartning. Had the aame policy been pursued which we pursued before of redeeming these notes in gold or silver at the eptlon of the government very few of them would have been presented. There would have been no disturbance In the' money market and no necessity of Issuing bonds. Crlmla-al Policy. This policy was a criminal policy, and lt la a ehild of and in Keeping wun mis en tire movement to fasten a gold standard upon the world. It Is dishonest It loads the people or this country wun Duraens rnr which it givos them nothing In return. It Is a Dollcv from which the masses or man kind all over the world derive no benefit a nollev which benefits only a raw men Who call themselves financiers, but whoso mission In llfo seema to be to get some thing for nothing whenever they can get the government to assist tnena in aoing so. Amount of Prod nets to Pay National Pbt. Let us see how the policy of the Amerl can government hasaffeoted the American people and who has derived the benefit of that policy. After we had resumed specie payments we were on the same basU with the other rations or ine eann, ana our n tinn&l .lAhlAmountod to about 12.000.000. oofl. At that time whiat waa worth up ward of $1 per bushel, and the price of all other American products ranged in propor tion. At that time it would have taken about $1,800,000,000 bushela of wheat or a proportionate amount of other American nmduota to nay the Whole national debt HI nee that time we have been paying for nearly a quarter of a century, and at pre nt the debt Is allele less than $1,800, 000, 000. wheat Is selling at leas than 50 rents a bushel, and the prices of all other Ameri can products on the average are in the same proportion, and. today It will take 8,600,000,000 bushels of wheat or a propor tionate amount of other American products to pay the remainder of the national debt that U, after we have paid for BO years, aftar a areiMratlon ha labored to reduce thls'dcbt, lt now will take twice the amount of American products to psy the remain der of the debt that would have been neces sary to my the whole of the debt at the time we resumed specie payments. Who Profit Nowf Wo are a producing nation, and the will y of our government has tended to reduce tlm prices of our products. Twenty years af- when a foreign bondholder took ono of our $1,000 bonds and clipped off the interval coupons for a year, amounting, say, to $V, bo could buy w 1th them only from 40 to M bushelsnf wheat or a proportionateamount of other American product a Today when that bondholder clips off the coupons for a year's interest that aame $50 will buy htm 100 bushela of wheat or a proportionate amount of other American products. 1 ask you, my fellow citizens, in w hose interest has the American government been run during this time? And If this policy Is to be continued, if tills gold standard is to be maintained, If we are to go on with a constantly increasing popula tion and a nonincrcasing vohue of money, then there must bo a further and a con tinuous decline In prices over tho world, and when another generation hasxiient Its llfo paying at this national debt it wilt then take nearly twice as much of Ameri can product to pay tho remainder of the debt then existing as it will take tslay to pay lt. Is It any wonder that the gold atandard people do not want this subject discussed? Is lt any wonder that they charge that we ore trying to arraign class against class when we call attention to what are simply the hnrd farts? Tha American people are the sufferers, and the only people who profit by this policy are the foreign and tho eastern bondholders and tbelr American agents. In one of tha bond transactions under the present ad ministration a New York linker and his associates, who represent English capital, made upward of $10,000,00U out or the government In a few weeks. Ia lt any wonder that those men want to continue this policy? Do you really think, my fel low citizens, that a policy which lowers the price of all American products while lt increases the American debt can bo aaid to be a wise American policy? Indebtedness of This Country. The indebtedness of our country, when you consider the vast corporation, munici pal and other debts, almost baflles compu tation. It ia nearly all held abroad. The Interest has to be rnlstxl by tho toll and the laborof American people. It has to be paid by Amcrienn products. Shall we pur sue a policy which will keep the price of American products down so low that it takes practically everything that the Amer ican nation can earn to annually pay the interest on that indebtedness, and thus de stroy their ability to buy, which means a destruction of the American market? Can we reasonably hope for any prosperity in the future? Talk about maintaining this gold standard and paying these vast sunn in gold! Why, there Is not gold enough in all the world to pay a fractional part of the Interest on our debt in gold, and in re cent years we have repeatedly seen gold manipulated in such a manner that a fow groat institutions control lt In other words, they were able to corner tho avail able gold. I have already shown you that in the entire United States t here is only $127,000,000 of avallablo gold. That in cludes all the banks have, and tho amount of gold in sight in the world which is available at any time is very small, and we therefore must expect If we stay on thia basis that gold will bo cornered repeatedly from time to time. The scculatora will profit, and the producers will suffer, bteadlnrsa of Standard. Mr. Schurz claims that the gold standard la a steady standard and therefore dosirablo for the commercial transactions of tho world. Other gold standard advocates have made the same declaration. It la irn possible to understand why they have done so, for all the world's experience Is to tho contrary. Kngland ia a gold standard country. The Bank of England rests on a gold standard, r ranee is a bimetallic coun try. While it has coined no silver since 1873, the Dank of France rests on the bl metallic basis. During the ten yeara from 1875 to 1884, Inclusive, the Dank of Eng land was obliged to chango tho rate of dls count 66 times; the Rank of France only 13 times. In other words, during those ten years the bimetallic standard was live times aa steady as the gold standard. And during the seven years from 18Sa to 18VI1, Inclusive, the Dank of England was forced to change tho rate of discount 69 times; the Dank of Franoe only 0 times. When one metal alone Is tho standard, it la affect ed not only by the chango in production, but by reason of Its limited quantity is subject to manipulation, whoroaa when the standard is supplied from two sources there is greater steadiness In the supply and the volume being so much greater it is more difficult to manipulate. Prices and Legiiriatlon. Mr. Cock ran argues that you cannot change values, and then ho uses this Ian' guage, "A man may chango prices by leg islation." That sentence admits tho charge ruade by the bimetallistsand Is in harmony with the views of tho greatest European statesmen, who claim, with tho bimetal- lists, that when the governments of the world demonetize silver they by legislation reduce the supply of money In tho world, and when they adopt a slnglo gold standard Ihey by legislation Increase the demand far gold, so that by legislation tho law of sup ply and demand was in such a mnnner in terfered with as to force up the purchasing power of gold to twice what It formerly waa If our committee were not so poor, I should recommend that they give Mr. Cockran a chock for traveling 1,000 miles to make that admission. Cockran on Wages. Mr. Cockran further gave us the benefit of his views on political economy In this language, "Wages depend on production and nothing else." Again he says, "Wages depend absolutely on production." If tills Is correct and nothing further Is needed than to produce, then all that is necessary Is for tho mills to start up and go to pro ducing, and the more they produce tho higher tho wages they can pay, ana every body will be happy. If there are any manufacturers In tho house, I ask you how this would strike you? Has Mr. Cockran covered the case? Is there not something wanting? Has he not left out the most es sential element, and that Is tho market? No manufacturer can run his mills unless he has a market for the things which his employees make, and it Is strange tluit all of the nold standard orators of the country persistently shut their eyes to the fact that until we restore the market there Is no use of opening the mills. Wages depwnd on the prices paid for the things that aro manu factured. Tho manufacturer cannot run his mills and pay high wagee and aooept low prices for his products. Labor creates property, and the price or thai proieny must necessarily flx the scale or wages. Oprnlng Mills. Major McKinley recently told some gen tlemen that he thought It was more im portant to this couutry that we should own the mills to tho laborer man to open the mints to the mine owners. This is an artful statement, calculated to deceive. Suppose he is taken at his word, and every mill owner in America opens up his nunc How long will they run? And, if they are obliged to shut down, why will they lie? Because there Is no market for tho things tbey make, and I say to Major McKinley that the only key that will open tho mills and keep them open is an Increase In the volume of money In this country. Let prices gradually come tip to the bimetallic standard, and yon will restore tne pur chasing power to the country. The farmer will again be able to bny, the railroad will be busy, and every business will increaas with the general prosperity, l he manu faeturer will be busy, and the bankers and merohaots Will again be doing business. Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report, That la the only way In wtrtc-n tne mill can again to jerinanently opened. Labor Paid In Gold. I recently heard a gold standard man make thia argument to laborers: "Why, you earn your bread by the sweat of your brow. You begin tolling early In tb morning, and you work until night, and when night comes you want to be paid in gold. You want a dear dollar. You want dollar of the greatest purchasing power to buy you aa much of tho comforts of life as la possible." Avery seductive argu ment It looks plausible on Its face; but, like all the arguments offered on this gold subject, It Is fallacious, calculated to de ceive and utterly Ignores the fact that the laborer needs a market, for wliat ho pro duces. It la an insultT. tho Intelligence of the lalorer to tell him that tho gold dol lar buys more than any other dollar If you do not at tho same time tell him how he can make that gold dollar. If this subject of prices were the mere scramble between buyer and seller, then the Idea that the dear dollars were In the Interest of laborers might be correct, but the trouble Is that a doar dollar not only In this country, but In all countries, lowers prices, and therefore means not only lower wages, but by lower ing prices and leaving the fixed charges the same it destroys tho market It has disablod thoso people from buying who formerly bought To the laborer it presents Itself this way: A dear dollar and no mar ket for the things ho makes, the mill closed, himself out of employment and his family out of broad. China and India. China and India have lately been held up to ua aa horrible examples of the con dition that wo will reach If we coin both gold and silver. I have pointed out to yon the effects that a reduced volume of money lias upon the prosperity or a country that as tho volume grows smaller and smaller the imoplosink lower and lower. In China the amount of money In circulation la only about $2.00 per capita, In India about $3 per capita. A nd while many things in both countries and in other countries that have but little money In circulation have con tributed to tho present unhappy condition of tho people the most potent of all causes lias been the Inadequate circulation of money. And If this gold standard is to be maintained for tho world If, aa I have said, our population is to go on increasing at enormous rates all over the world and the volume of money does not Increase the tendency of our country will be directly toward the samo conditions that exist In China and India. Loral Creditor. Dut, says some one, if you add silver to the volui..e of money, will you not bo In juring our own local creditors who have money loaned out? I say no emphatical ly no. No creditor, be he banker or private individual, can possibly benefit or profit by having universal bankruptcy all around him. Every creditor, be be Imnker or mer chant or private Individual, does profit by having general activity around. It opens new channels for his capital, it creates a demand for his money, and ho profits by general proicrity. There Is just that dif ference between falling and rising prices.

Not a Partltan Question. In 1801, when the drumbeats called you to arms, you were not asked whether you were a Republican or a Democrat; you were not axked whether you were a Whig or au Independent you were only asked whether you loved the llag and wero ready to fight for It In 1 '.' the question Is not whether you are a Republican or a Demo crat, whether you aro a Populist or a Pro hibitionist. The question is, Do you love republican institutions and will you help maintain them? We aro nt tho fork of the road. Dy turning to tho left we pass per manently under a British policy; we go into the region of dear money and low prices into the region of perpetual hard times for all men who toll; we go into the region where we will have Turkey, Egypt, India and Ireland for associates. Dut If we turn to the right; if we repudiate Hanna and his boodle; if we respect the memory of the fathers; if we again declare, as they did, that we are independent of ev ery nation on earth, then this republic will leap forward on a new career of grandeur and of glory, a career of prosperity and of happiness, a career that will elevate the sons of men and be a blessing to the people of the earth. Tho Advantage ef an Accident. "The small 6ize or the screw," says a noted shipbuilder, "is not due to the perception of any inventor of its greater effect as compared with a larger one, but purely to accident. When I first en gaged in the machinery business, screws for steamers were made as large as possible, it being the theory that the greater the diameter the higher the speed. ' 4A vepscl was sent to sea with a screw so large that it was deemed best to cast each blade in two parts and then weld them together. During a storm all three blades of the propeller broke at the welding, reducing the diameter by more than two-thirds. To the surprise of the captain tho vessel shot forward at a speed such as had never been attained before. Engineers then experimented with small propellers and discovered that they were much more effective than large ones. Had it not been for that accident we might have gone on using large bladed screws to the present day." London Star. A Lie. Tim Healy is beginning to acquire a reputation as a story teller.
