The greatest authorities on
questions of finance agree that
a decrease in the money supply
must and dues cause a corres
ponding decrease in the prices
of products The great con
traction in the worlds supply
of money consequent upon the
Tfffrwaatiza l on i silver by
various leading nations has
doubtless caused the great
loweiing of prices which has
taken place Certainly when
the money supply ia cut down
one half it must require twice
as much corn cotton wheat or
other products to obtain the
same amount of money as that
reqnired previous to the reduc
lion of tiiH money supply
In almost every country the

MoKinlet mill harps on
protection in his little talkB to
the nndiencPd conveyed by the
generous railronds to his door
Free trade he declares has de
stroyed business confidence and
driven prosperity from our
doors The failure of tbe demo
crats to pass laws insuring
sufficient revenue to support
the government is held up as
also contributing to this result
He fails to mention that Tiad
the income tax law not been
knocked out by a vacillating
supreme court sufficient rev
enue would have been provid
ed while the whole American
people were benefitted by the
low tariff resulting from demo
cratic legislation The money
question receives the merest in
cidental mention while other
great issues for which the de
mocratic party ia fighting
are ignored The indifference
which characterizes the repub
lican nominee to the vital ques
tion which now claims the at
tention of the American people
can only be due to his assurance
that the millions which have
been subscribed as a fund to
support his candidacy will be
sufficient to secure his election
without any effort on his part

BMTlSII SENTIMENT ON
FIIEE SIL VER
Apropos of the article from
the London Financial News on
the silver question which has
played so important a part in
the present campaign and
which was denounced by the
goldbngs as a forgery ex Con
gressman H A Coffeen who
was the first to quote it gives
an explanation
Mr Coffeen says that he saw
the articlo in the paper of date
March 101894 and that he has
endeavored to procure a copy
of that date but has found it
impossible to do so as all have
been called in or destroyed but
that the Financial News did
publishsuch an article is prov
ed by another editorial in that
paper of April 30 1894 a clip
ping of which Mr Coffeen has
and which is not dispnted This
nriicle is on exactly the same
lineas the one which the gold
bug papers deny as a forgery
and the authenticity of which it
is impoBsible to provp because
there are no copies of the Finan
cial News of that date extant
This article is follows
as
There is a plain moral in
the remark that if the United
States would venture to cut her
self adrift from Europe and
take ontrigiit to silver she
would have all America and
Asia at hpr back and would
command the markets o f both
continents The barrier of gold
would be more fatal than any
barrier of a custom house The
bond of silver would be strong
er than any bond of free trade
There can be no donbl about
it that if the Unitrd StateB
were tc adopt a silver basis to
morrow British trade would be
ruined before the year was out
Every American industry would
be protected not only at home
but at every other market Of
course the States would suffer
to a certain extent through
having to pay their obligations
abroad in gold but the loe on
exchange under this head
would be a mere drop in the
bucket compared with the pro
fits to be reaped from the mar
kets of South America and
Asia to say nothing of Europe
The marvel is that the Unit
ed States has not long ago seiz
ed the opportunity and but for
the belief that the waj of Eng
land is necessarily the way to
commercial success and pros
perity undoubtedly it would
have been done long ago Now
Americans are awakening to
the fact that so long as they
narrow their ambition to bo
coming a larger England they
cannot beat us It has been a
piece of luck that it has never
occurred to the Americans to
scoopns out of the worlds
markets by going on n silver
basis and it might serve us
right if irritated by the con
teraptnous apathy of our gov
ernment to tbe gravity of the
silver problem 1 the Americans
retaliate by freezing out gold
It could easily be done
This is sufficiently to the
point It proves beyond ques
tion tbe authenticity of the ar
tide in dispute for it reechoes
the views expressed there and
it shows the views entertained
by English financiers on the
silver question and why they
are so anxious to prevent this
country from remonetizing sil
ver It is the fir st time that we
ever adopted the policy laid
down for us by Lombard street
or allowed England to suggest
our financial legislation for us
The Financial News expressed
the sentiment of the Britinh
bankers and merchants when ii
declared that nothing would
ten more to help American
trade and injnre that of Eng
land than the free coinage of
silver It is not to be wondered
at that the British shonld be
using nil their inflnence
through Wall street tojndnce
us to adopt the British gold
standard New Orleans Times

Austin Tex Oct 4 Polit
ical Jcircles here are somewhat
agitated today by a rumor that
has gained circulation to the
effect that the sound money
Democrats are going to spring
a surprise on the people by
putting a full State ticket in
the field The movement is
said to have been precipitated
by the refusal of Bill Mc
Donald the colored Republi
can leader to support the fus
ion ticket and his announce
ment in iavor of the State
Democracy and for the furth
er reason that without a sound
money ticket there will be no
way to vote for Palmer and
Buckner the sound money
Presidential candidates It is
hoped by the new ticket to
to capture that portion of the
Republican vote which de
clines to fuse with the Popu
lists and thereby insure the
election of Jerome Kearby It
is thought that Judge Rufus
Hardy will head the new tick
et unless the Old Alcalde
can be prevailed on to let his
name be used
While the Alcalde is
known to be for Bryan yet it
is also known that he is not
very friendly to the present
State administration Gov
Roberts has been in this city
the past two or three days and
has had frequent talks with
prominent gold men who are
against Culberson These
talks may have been purely of
a social nature or they may
not have been
To an Express representa
tive Gov Roberts said he was
too old to get into active poli
tics now but that if he was
twenty years younger he
would show some people a
thing or two He will not
support Jerome Kearby and
if it can be made clear to him
that he can accept the sound
money nomination without
having to enter actively into
the campaign or give up his
views on silver it is possible
that he may be prevailed upon
to let his name be used
That the sound money men
have come to the conclusion
that to defeat Culberson it will
be necessary to put a sound
money ticket in the field there
is but little doubt and as Cul
berson seems to be the chief
bone of contention it is not at
all unreasonable to suppose
that the sound money Demo
crats will oppose him with ex
Gov Roberts provided the
latter will not object to letting
his name head the ticket
One of the sound money
leaders here was interviewed
on the subject by the Express
correspondent this evening
but he flatly declined to make
any statement for publication
saying that if the sound money
democrats did anything more
than they have already done it
would be made public in a very
few days Another sound
money leader said he knew
nothing of the contemplated

The matter has created much
interest in political circles in
this city today and the politic
ians are divided in their opin
ions as to the effect a sound
money ticket would have on
the situation Some say it will
take votes from Kearby while
others think it will draw lrom
Culberson and make Kearbys
election pretty certain Any
way the actions of the sound
