I Editor Star T h e Populist speakers who are now making the canvass for their party in the coun ty still contend, with rare perversi ty that the Democratic party demonetized silver in 1893, and in their speeches vigorously attack an article which appeared in a re cent issue of the Star wherein your correspondent showed that this charge against Democracy is false. To niv mind the Popuhte speak- trs in Attala who are now attempt in.? joint discussions with the nominees of the Democratic party, would have a big job on their hands to meet the arguments of cur speakers without turning aside to make an attack upon a man who is not in the canvass, and that in his absence. The Pops' argu ment are something like this: '-An assassin waylays and strikes a dag ger to the heart of his victim, who dies became he ceases to breathe. And notwithstanding the fact that he is dead he still exhibits signs of life at intervals, and after twenty venrs another party comes along and re-assassinates the same vic tim, who has been twenty years dead, the party No. 2 thereby be coming as guilty as the first ass assin." To foster this idea they contend that the act of demoneti zation was only the enactment of a law stopping the coinage of sil ver bullion. The effect of demon etization was to measurably stop silver coinage, but the act of 1873 passed by a Republican Congress did a ereat deal more than that. That act changed the unit of value and destroyed the monetary tunc tions and uses of silver by taking it out of our monetary system as a raonev metal out of which could be coined a money of final pay ment enjoying equal privileges and being of equal value with die gold dollar. Thus the law of i873discretited, debased, and subordinated silver to the gold standard of value set ep by the Republican Congress at the dictation of the bond holding money lords of Europe and her Wall Street allies. Thus it has come about through the operation of that law and the financial policy inaugurated by it that silver is de nied the free coinage recognized by the constitution and maintained by the .Democratic party through all the past history of the country, -and was thrown upon the markets of the world as a commodity, the United States government becom ing a purchaser. . The only effect of the law of 1893 was to stop this purchase ol silver bullion by our government, and did not in any wise affect the status of silver as a money metal, as before pointed out. The Pops reason backward from effect to cause; from sequence to logic (such logic as they have), and their conclusions are equally faulty. , The above explanation, it seems to me is so plain that a wayfaring man though a Populite need not r in understanding it. The rec ord of the Democratic party upon the silver question is invulnerable, s platforms through . all its past history declaring; for the use of Wh gold and silver as the stand ard money of the country upon qual terms of coinage, whenever there was any reference to the cur rency. .'

As the election draws near, the armers, having nearly finished their crops and having compara tively leisure time, are beginning to discuss political matters and the different candidates who ask for their support and the princi ples upon which they stand. There is no excitement or Diaerness grow ing out of the differences of opin ion among our people, the best of feeling prevails, and tnose wno expect to ride into office by precip itating a red-hot, outer anu muu slinging canvass, will signally fail cn far as the voters in this section are concerned. And Mr. Candi date keep quiet yourself. If you can't speak well of your opponent, don't say auything. If your oppo nent has faults the people will find them out without your aid. Don't get rattled because some voters whom you had calculated on for support have concluded to vote for the other fellow, don't fret and squirm when you learn that Mr. Blank has quit your party and gone over to the other Bide Kemem- h thst.
