Silver la the Iasjue.
With force resistless as an avalauclio
the cause of silver is moving oa. Tha
for West and Northwest, the Central
States and the South, have espoused
tho doctrine of unrestricted coinage of
the white metal. The old party leaders
of the Mast view with apprehension the
growth of the movement, and read in
it the doom of th monopolies fostered
by the present iniquitous currency sys
tem. Eastward the star of Empire wends
Its way!
And now conservative Michigau
wheels into line. At iiattle Creek the
work began, anjl already Lansing, the
capital city, is ringing with its echoes.
As reported by the press, here is a
synopsis of the proceedings:
Til. real result of the conference
was the adoption of the report of the
Committee on Resolutions us amended
by Daniel Strang. The report lo-
in:i!idd the free coinage of gold and
silver at the old ratio of 1 1 ; to 1; that all
paper money be issued by the govern
ment as full legal tender foiinded on
the taxes and" wealth of the country
and that no more gM bonds he issued
in times of pence; that the best inter
ests of th" Third Congressional District
of Michigan demanded the election of
n OMigressional representative who
adopts and advoeates these principles;
that the conference pledges its united
iind enthusiast ie support to such a man,
regardless of previous party a filiations;
and all men who wish for better times,
and broader and wiser legislation, are
invited to join and work for these finan
cial reforms. Th chairman was au
thorized to appoint a committee of live,
and t lie - committee was instructed to
prepare a silver platform and call a
congressional convention for the pur
pose of putting a candidate in the field.
Addresses were made by Ianiel
Strange. K. W. Kwing. Patrick (Jil
koy. II. .7. l'lynn, and W. D. Smith,
and each of these gentlemen was con
fident that a silver party can turn
things over in this district. Mr. Smith
likened the movement to the formation
of the Republican party under the oaks
at .lackson. and said he would 'not be
surprised if the party grew until it
spread over the entire United States
and elected a President. It looks now
as if Democrats and Prohibitionists
would join the Populists and as many
silver Republicans would vote the
It is now apparent that the Republi
can leaders will attempt to nullify the
influences at work, by having their
party indorse free silver. Hut the mis
sion of the. Republican party is ful
filled, and its days of usefulness past.
Populism is the order of the day, and
this dispatch from Lansing shows the
trend otaffairs:
"It has become apparent within the
last few days that a determined at
tempt will be maih to commit the Re
publican party in this State to the issue j
of the free and unlimited coinage of sil
ver. Five silver sentiment has grown
like a pigweed in a radish bed in this
State during the last two years. The
Patrons of Industry are committed to
it, the Farmers' Alliance has the issue
for its basic principle, the State 1 1 range
prefers it to most of the other linancial
schemes of the present day, the Demo
cratic party is split in two upon the
"question, and scores of the leaders of
the Republican party are in favor of it.
Right or wrong, the Republican party,
with its inherent greed for power,
wants the votes of the free silver men.
When the votes are delivered the party
may not see lit to enact a free silver
law, but the issue will have. served its
purpose. It was matter of some sur
prise when the other day State Senator
F. W. Clapp brought the question into
the Michigan Legislature. Senator
Clapp resides at Rattle Creek, where
the recent free silver conference was
held, and ho is a candidate for thejiom
inatioii for Congress to succeed Julius
Cesar 1J arrows. The support which Iiis
free silver resolution received was a
surprise, and indicated that the RcpubJ
In an Srtator nie ready to rush pell
well into populism. Although it was
laid on the table by a vote of 12 to 10,
the vote was reconsidered on the follow
ing day and the resolution made a
special order in the Senate. It is be
lieved that if the resolution is adopted
it will have considerable effect upon
the platform-makers. It is by no means
Improbable that t'.ie .'epnblieau p;riy
in Michigan will indorse the free silver
idea, in which event the party will be
as badly severed as the Democratic
party now is over the same question."
Let the good work go on! Rut watch
with jealous care that the Populist
party is not emasculated by accepting
only partial aid from cither of the old
parties. Populism is wide enough,
broad enough, and progressive enough
to furnish a governmental code for the
whole country. And if either or both
of the old parties think to steal the
thunder of the new star in politics,
they will find themselves mistaken.
IIus Honorable Precedent.
Covernment ownership of the tele
graph is not at all an exclusive tenet
of the Populist party, as Senator Allen
tried to impress uion his fellow Sena
tors. On the contrary, the postal tele
graph was repeatedly recommended by
Republican incumbents of the post
master generalship long before the
Populist party had existence either in
imagination or In fact. Postmaster
General Cress well recommended the
postal telegraph more than twenty
years ago. Postmaster General Wan-
amnfcor advocated government owner
ship of thi telegraph after the. Populist
platforms had Adopted the Idea, but no
one claimed that he thereby became n
Populist. Had Senator Allen pursued
the subject further ho would have dis
covered that a very respectable minori
ty of both houses of Congress are favor
able, to the postal telegraph.
The 1 Effect on Uimincs.
The newspaper organs which have
been continually harping on gold since
the very day that Cleveland Issued his
silver repealing message to the extra
session of Congress in the summer of
1SD3 are at it again in connection with
the present condition of business. And
their statements are just as true now
as they were then and not a whit more
"Business will pick up at ocee as
soon as the new gold loan is secured,"
chirrups a ponderous authority in New
York. "Repeal the Sherman law and
business will revive within a week,"
said the same authority eighteen
months ago. "The bonds have been
sold, and now to business," again it
piped twelve mouths ago. "The loan
has made the treasury solid and there
is now a good footing for business,"
cackled the same concern scarcely
sixty days now gone. Iut on neither
of these occasions did the carrying out
of the Cleveland linancial program help
business to any appreciable degree.
What business wants is not the pil
ing up of the national debt, but assur
ance that the people are to be put in a
condition to pay their scores at the
corner groceries nnd the dry goods
stores. Whenever the consumers of the
country are given an opportunity to
put in their time at good wages in
shops, mills and counting houses, on
railways and on farms, then there will
be business for all. And it is not gold
that is needed to bring that condition
The Republican newspapers which
have been buncoed into the everlasting
gold scheme would better wake up to
the situation and see where t' ey are
"at." The war upon silver was under
taken for the double purpose of benefit
ing the gold ring and distracting at
tention from the colossal failure of
tariff reform."
The way to benefit business is to go
lack to business principles in the man
agement of the country's business and
industrial affairs. Give to the country
a sufficient volume of money to trans
act its business. Let the buyers and
shippers of the West once become in
dependent of the Eastern money bags.
When Europe needs the products of the
Western plains, let Western money
move the crops. If this wore done one
single season, the cry of distress that
has been heard for mouths past would
be settled forever.
Free coinage of silver will do it!
Governor Waite.
Davis II. Waite is no longer Governor
of Colorado, but. now that he has re
tired from the arena, even his enemies
in that State have to confess that his
administration has left legacies of
legislation which are a credit to the
State and a benefit to its people. Waite
was often hot of temper, immoderately
so. perhaps, but it was always the heat
of righteous indignation, such as every
honest man may feel in times like
these. Though along in years, the re
tiring Governor is well preserved both
mentally and physically not unlike
the English Gladstone and may again
take a part in shaping the history of
his country. lie struck us as a thor
oughly honest man. as well as aide and
progressive; even Iiis worst enemies
have never undertaken to assert that
he was not honest. Waite, in fact,
bears a close resemblance in manner
and temperament, as well as in action
and principles, to Andrew Jackson.
Men who have not understood him, or
whose political interest lay in not un
derstanding him or in misrepresenting
him. have called Waite such names as
"crazy;" but Jefferson records the ap
plication of "maniac" to the author of
the Declaration of Independence and
father of the Democracy for similar
reasons his oposition to the privileges
of the banks of issue. The fox does not
love the man who tries to deprive it
of its goose.
Public Sentiment Demands It.
Public sentiment is tending more
strongly than ever in this country to
ward the increased use of silver in
our currency. We certainly need to
establish a currency system which is
best for our own country and our own
national development, rather than a
system which other European coun
tries are so strenuously insisting that
we should adopt. Very many of our
ablest thinkers anil business men are
not in favor of maintaining the single
gold standard to please John Rull and
a dozen of his leading bankers. In
maintaining the siugle gold standard
we are depreciating the farm value
of our products, bankrupting our farm
ers, who are the bone and sinew of the
country, and we are also forcing 'in
creased grain production in silver
using countries, which are taking ad
vantage of our unfortunate position.
Every patriotic citizeu should demand
the restoration of silver to the money
of this country and to the world. Con
tinued disaster is sure to follow the at
tempt to adopt the English advice to
maintain the single gold standard.
For Money or Honor.
John G. Carlisle went into Cleveland's
cabinet for either money or honor. If
for money, it was for dishonest money,
for his place in the Senate was worth
nearly as much and was more certain.
If for honor, it was dishonorable, for
he had to sacrifice his convictions, as
expressed in long years of public life,
for his views on finance had ever been
contrary to Cleveland's ami contrary
has been his policy since inducted into
ottice. The logic of the case is certain
ly against him. Had he desired honor
he could have covered himself with It
J by remaining In the Senate and defeat
ing the financial conspirators. In the
New Time Just ahead of us he will be
counted with those who knew how but
would not help the people who had
honored him. There are many labor
ers struggling with poverty to-day
whose names will be honored when
that of Carlisle will be forgotten. Men
are being created whom the gold of
syndicates cannot buv.
Public O wiiereship.
Homestead! What a horror your
very name conjures up. How differ
ent from the emotions of what the
name once stood for! Homestead. Pa.!
Another cut in wages! Another link in
ihe chain of industrial slavery, o? man
acling man to work by keeping him
in poverty so he dare not cry out for
fear of starvation. Over two years
ago I pointed out to the iron workers in
Pueblo. Colo., that the Homestead cut
would be an excuse for a reduction in
Colorado. The soulless C. C. & Iron
Co., to cut to meet the Eastern compe
tition, and then an Eastern cut to get
under them, and a Western cut to get
under the East again. And the cuts
have been coming on schedule tine!
Rut the boys, trained up by boodle poli
ticians, would not listen to government
ownership of the coal mines and iron
works! They were told they would

free now!! Hoys, vote for no man who
does not preach public ownership.
Think Over Thin.
Suppose we abandon the single
money standard, and it would be true
as predicted that geld would cost a
premium, which means that gold would
become an article of trade and cor.
meivo only: well, what thenV The im
porter who wanted to pay a bill in Eu
rope would have to buy gold to do that,
instead of paying directly with money,
he would have to purchase a certain
article of merchandise, namely, gold,
and give this in exchange for the mer
chandise he bought. That this should
be of any serious injury to the poop e,
we really cannot see. We were in this
condition before. During the war and
a long time after gold did not circu
late much as money, but had to be
bought with the money circulating and
our republic did not go to pieces and
we had no such fearful and long-lasting
panic as the present. The truth
is that the period when gold was at a
premium in this country was the pe
riod of its greatest business prosperity.

A great deal is being said about the
way Cleveland has again met the
money crisis. More will be said anon
about how the gold-shippers have met
Cleveland. And this will not be the
collision of an irresistible force with
an immovable object, cither. Mr.
Cleveland's obstinacy is below par in
this particular.

Curious Inscriptions Copied from tha

In the Xcwbery .Magazine there is an
Interesting article on "Iiell luscrip-

Several inscriptions on bells are of an
amatory character. A very common in
scription is the following, found in Cov
