A POLITICAL PAPER,
And n Good One, Written by Dr. M. V.
Ilnrily of Mnrletta.
(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
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"
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
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
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
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
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.

,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

in thoir platform favoring a single gold
standard and denonncing tho freo coiu

question then, but with yonr permission
I will do so now.

joined tho Republican ranks, and, too
young to vote, I flung my blazing ban

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

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

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.
