(Installment No 5)' We are told by our democratic friends, that free and unlimited coinage of sil ver as they propose, will greatly add to our money of circulation, but I am in clined to think that their imagination is considerably strained. Judging from the history of other silver countries, I should conclude that our currency would contract to the p.xtent of our gold, which is something like 8000,000,000. I guess this would be the result. Then our ?25, 000,000 of silver and 8475,000,000 of paper would be the money of circulation, and as a result its purchasing power would drop to the commercial value of the silver bul lion in each piece coined. This condition of things would make us some little trouble, as it would make it necessary for us to keep constantly on hand a money detector, by which we could keep posted on the fluctuation in price of the silver bullion ; still it would find employment for the pub lisher of the books. I have always thought that the market price of our merchandise and other commodities was measured from the 25 8-10 grs. gold - standard, and if so, when we lower our currency standard to the bame plane of 3Iexico, Japan and China, we must ex pect the same condition of things which exist there. Commodities will "seem to bring higher prices, but their actual price is unchanged because of the de preciation in the currency standard. If we owe a dollar to a gold country, we must shell out two silver dollars for" its payment. The republican party is not unfriend ly to the use of silver as a part of our currency, but we desire to be safe in the use of it, and in order to make our selves safe, we advocate the policy of an international coinage ratio, so that when we are in possession of a dollar of it we know that it is of the worth of 100 cents not only to us, but anywhere in the world. Our money now is good enough and a portion of it is silver, and so long as we can keep it as good as now, we "would better make no change in it The democratic party has never shown a currency policy that has been in the best interests of our people. Its antebellum, wild-cat money was no good, and its opposition to the cur rency made necessary by our civil war was in bad taste. Then again, when thej-epublican party was lending every means available towards resumption, simply trying to make gooil our gov ernment's promises to pay, hear their talk. They said our talk of resumption was all balderdash, that is, was for campaign buncombe, simply to catch votes, and that we knew we could not redeem our credit, but resumption came all the same and at the hands of the republican party and with honor to our nation. They tried to inflate our currency, in time of pence, too, by the issue of greenbacks and only three years since, advocated the policy of a return to the old state banking system. Now they come to the front with the free and unlimited coinage of silycr at the ratio of 10 to 1. declaring It the only sound currency system, and ask us to indorse it. If we desire to see our nation placed upon a currency level with those silver standard countries where the necessar ies of life are dear and wages low, whore the laborer cannot, from his labor, obtain really the necessaries of life needed in tho support of his family, then we should join in with them in their grand scheme. No, there can be nothing comforting to any of us but tho silyor bullionist, in the free and unlimited coinage of silver at that ratio, and I understand that thoy number but few as compared with our 70 millions of population. If I cared for no man's Interest but my own and I possessed a ton or two of silver bullion, I am quite sure I should try hard to secure such a policy for our nation, then I would dump down my treasure at the mint and have it coined into dollars, making a not profit of fifty cents nearly on overy dollar coined. All in all I imagine we could do no better than to rnturn to tho policy In augurated by the republican party a third of a century since, and under which wo prospered as no other ever did in the same number of years. We still advocate the protective tariff policy and we are for an honest stand ard of valuo with which to measure the exchanges of our people. We have never failed in the fulfill ment of all of our promises as a party, and we hope never to do so in the future. We have given clear, straightforward expressions of our political faith and incorporated them into our politi cal platform, which is an open book for the inspection of every voter in our nation, as well as for the people of the whole world. We offer for our standard bearer Wm. McKinley, of Canton, Ohio, than whom no better man lives in any nation on the globe. From his boVhood days to the present hour his character has been above reproach. Socially he is a chris tian gentleman. Intellectually, he stands at the top. As a Union Soldier he was never known to shirk from duty, today he is a living monument of our nation's pride and glory. As a member of the legal fraternity he has no superior. As a legislator he was always found battling for right, and his work while acting in that capa city, together with his record while governor of this great state of Ohio, demonstrate the fact of his efficiency to most ably fill any position in the gift of the people of this the grandest nation on the globe. Of our candidate for Vice-President little less can be said. My friends, the Campaign of 1808 is upon us and we will soon have tho op portunity to appoint our law makers and business manager for another ser ies of years. This we do by simply casting our votes for the men to whom we may feel willing to delegate such power, but before doing this wo should care fully look the situation over, because wo must live under the laws enacted by them. If we desire the kind of prosperity wo have been enjoying for tho past three years, or even worse than this, then continue the present administra tion in power; but, on the other hand, if we desire a protective policy that protects, a dollar that is worth a hun dred cents anywhere in the world, laws enacted in the interests of tho people of the United States of America reeard less of race, color, geographical posi tion or religious opinions, let him be a capitalist, a workingman, a farmer, a merchant, a manufacturer, or a live man in any business whatsoever, thon we will make no mistake in voting the full republican ticket. Remember, the great questions for discussion are : free trade and free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, with nothing but our own legislation behind it as aiiACKKit, when the commercial ratio, all over the world, is nearly 32 to 1. This is'.the demo cratic policy against a proteatlye tariff policy and sound money as advocated by the republican party. I could not vote with a party that is trying so hard to impose on our dear old Uncle Samuel, especially in his old age, as the democratic party is trying to do now. Think of trying to force him to open his mints to the free and unlimited coinage of the world's silver at the ratio of 10 to 1, when tho commercial ratio is almost 32 to 1 all over the world. Such a thing would be a gross imposi tion on the old gentleman. It would be trying to compel him to shoulder a much heavier load than he could pos sibly carry, saying nothing of the dis astrous effects it would have on all the people of our nation, except except what? Except the owner of bilvkh iiui.lio.v and possibly some men who might be instrumental in bringing such a state of things about If such a condition of things should obtain, just so soon our gold would bo hoarded, our silyer and paper would be the currency of circulation and would depreclato In purchasing power to the commercial value of silver bullion, not only away from home but here with us.

THOUGH A STE0NG SILVER MAN, Tom ritoh of Arizona Wat Asked If no Would LeaTB Ills Forty How Ho An swered tho Qnestlon "Who, Then, It There In This land That Shall Dare Ask Me to Betray Those Momorles He cause of a Dlffercnco of Opinion on Sliver ? ,At the lato Republican couvention of Arizona, held to elect delegates to tho St. Louis convention, Tom Fitch, one of the most noted freo silver advocates in tho territory, was called upon to speak, and responded in a speech which for simplo eloquenco and beauty of diction deserves preservation. His reasons why he should remain in tho Republican party are unanswerable, and should bo read by all Republicans. Omitting his introduction Mr. Fitch said : "This morning a friond, who is a member of this convention, and who now houors me with his audience, said to mo : 'Mr. Fitch, you havo always been a pronounced advocate of the free coiuago of silver ; what will you do if the St. Louis convention adopt a plank in thoir platform favoring a single gold standard and denonncing tho freo coiu ago of silver?' I did not answer this question then, but with yonr permission I will do so now. "I belong to the Republican party bo cause its history is the history of the growth, the greatness and the f rcodom of tho natlou ; because its purposes are patriotic ; bocauso it is tho friend of labor without being tho foo of thrift , becauso it is wise; because it is just; becauso its restoration to complete power will rekindle the furnace and Etart the turbines, and fill tho land with tho music of contented and woll-paid toil, and put bread into men's mouths and hopo into their hearts. "I belong to the Republican party be cause it is tho grandest political organi zation of freemen that the world has ever known ; becauso under its wiso guidance star after star has been added to our flag, ship after ship has been added to our fleets, factory after factory has been added to our resources, mil lions upon millions havo been added to our wealth, city after city has been de veloped from onr villages, and the land has been laced with a network of iron rails, and furnace flres havo illuminated the night, and tho grand diapason of labor has been made to sound through out tho continent. "I belong to tho Republican party be cause under its inspiration these United States, ouco a wrangling and discordant commonwealth these United States, onco shamed with slavery and decrepit with tho disease of secession these United States have become a country where no slavo's presonco dishonors la bor, where no freeman's utterances are choked by tho hand of power, where no man dofts his hat to another, excopt through the courtesy of Iqual9, whore education is free, where manhood is re spected, and where labor is protected. "Under the patriotic rule of tho Re publican party these United States havo become a nation whose credit reigns at the head of tho world's finances whose flag floats proudly upon tho sea, and whoso armies would como at the drum beat out of the hives of industry to swarm in defense of tho country on ov ery shore. "Under the rnlo of the Republican party theso United States havo become the greatest, freest and most prospetous natiou under the light of tho sun. "I belong to tho Republican party be causo it gayo land to tho landless, be cause it gave work to tho industrious, becauso it ;ave freedom to the slave, because, when the nation was in peril, it gave armies and treasure for her preservation "Forty years ago, then a lad of J 8, I joined tho Republican ranks, and, too young to vote, I flung my blazing ban ner aloft for Fremont and Jessie. I was present as a newspaper reporter at the Chicago convention in I860, when all Illinois shouted Abraham Lincoln into tho presidency. I heard tho song of John Brown's soul suug in bated breath and in secret gatherings of his sympa thizers, and, four yoars later, on these distant shores, I almost caught the echo of its rofraiu when armies chanted it for their battle anthem. I enjoyed the eloquence nd friendship of Baker and of Starr King, and Butler and Bing ham, and Garfield and Conkling, and that noblest Roman of them all, James Q. Blaine. "Who, then, is there in all this land that shall daro to ask mo to betray theso memories becauso of a difference of opinion concerning tho conditions under which silver dollars shall be coined? "Who shall daro to tell me it is my duty to leave tho path along which my youth and manhood, and where, -when the ovoning bugle shall sound tho final reveille, my age shall bo found still marching? Rather will I turn to th Republican goddess tho same steadfast face that I bore when my locks, now whitening, were as black as tho raven's wing, and say to her, as Ruth said to Naomi. 'Wither thou goest, I will go ; and where thou lodgest, I shall lodgo ; thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God ; where then diest, I will die, and there will I be buried.' " Ilotr Railroad Shop Men Totad. The traveling salesmen aro almost a unit for McKinley. Ono of them, Mr. O. E. Ferguson, writes to a Chicago pa per from Bloomington, 111., as follows: "Am making McKinley speeches ev ery day. A vote among the workers in the railroad shops here resulted as fol lows: McKinley 407, Bryau 101, unde cided 04. Never wore the people more opon to conviction than now, and the Republicans are working as never be fore. Nearly every travoling man 1 meet is for McKinloy and a chance to sell goods.' Certainly W Can. Candidate Bryan, with much gusto, asks why the United States can not "maintain a financial system of our own." No one says vro can not, Mr. Bryan, but tho Republican party says that it must be an honest system. There's tho difference between your po sition and that of tho Rennblican narfv Or. Charles Emerson. Dr. Charles Emerson, son of ''Ca leb and Mary Dana Emerson, was "born Aug. 0th, 181B, at Marietta, O., whero ho grow to manhood. For sev eral years he wits associated with his father in publishing tho Marietta Ga zette, which was later merged into tho Intelligencer, now tho Marietta Reg ister. lie studied medicine under the Into Dr. Jno. Cotton, completing his medi cal course in Cincinnati. Ho then set tled in western Ohio, where ho mar ried Mrs. Margaret Grier, May 8, 1842. They had four children, a son, who died in infancy, and three daughters. After some years ho moved to Van Wert, where he eventually gave up the practlco of medicine and devotod his entire lime to banking. Hero his wife died, and here his two elder daughters married, Elizaboth to J. M. C. Marble, and Mary to Walter Buck ingham. His home being thus broken up, ho joined the "Union Colony," which sot tied In Grcely, Colorado, In 1870, of which Horace Greely and N. C. Meeker were tho originators. Tho history of Greely states: "Dr. Charles Emerson was the first man of large capital to Identify himself with the colony. There is no doubt but that upon the lists of colonists that joined at New York are the names of men of exten sive capital, but they did not como and take their chances here as Dr. Emer son did. Early during the first sum mer he was elected treasurer of the colony, instead of Horace Greely, whose non-residence made his holding that office too inconvenient for us. Tho Doctor held the office for six years, and as tho funds on hand were, after the first year, quite Inconsider able, It may bo said that the work was done almost gratuitously." March 15, 1873, he married Mrs. Kate O ill Atkinson, formerly of Manchester, Englahd. They had two sons, Chailes William and George Dana, and one daughter, Rose Hill Emerson. In 1S81 his daughter, Minnie, was married to Prof. F. E. Smith, a gradu ate of Yale University. In 1SS5 he sold his interest in the bank of which be had been president for years, and in tho Oabis Hotel, and moved to Denver, which has since been his home. Ills business interests for tho past ten years have been largely in the agricultural region below Greuly on the Platte. He was, perhaps, the most extensive owner-of land under ir rigation In the state. He died at his home Aug. 23, 1800, aged 81 years. He was a man of wise judgment, keen perceptions, unusual power of concentration, quiet, reserved and un assuming in manner. Ono who was a member of his household for a year re calls that amid all his largo business Interests he never seemed hurried or perplexed, but mot all emergencies with promptness and decision. His wife and six children survive him. Of his father's family there re main E. S. Bailey, of this city. Prof. Geo. D., Luther G. and Miss Sarah R. Emerson, of San Diego, Cal. The Harden of lroor. The bnrden of proof rests, of course, on tho free silver people. Thoy pro pose a radical and revolutionary cha'ngo in our financial system, and it is for them to demonstrate that it -will pro duce beneficial results. They want to make an experiment which will turn out disastrously if it does not work fa vorably. The experience of countries already having the silver standard shows indisputably that thcro it causes evil, for instance, in sending up prices of the necessaries of life while it does not raiso wages correspondingly. ,Honco it in for the freo silver people and newspapers to provo absolutely that their scheme would produoo no such result in this country especially, and to show why we should bo an exception to tho general rule. If a man wants, to sell you a contrivance which, ho savs. wiU onablo you to jump from Trinity steepio wiinoui nurting yourself, and proposes that you shall try it to test his pretentions, you are likoly to decline, especially if it has proved unsuccessful when tried by other people.
