Thrls equestion is now th0. great subject of discussionui, all over thia broad land of ours, but it. assulnen,, Iow ever, a different guire. in that it del'alcI with the free and uanlhhited coinage of silver. 'I here is a powerful party whichh lina t always conteltded for thle aflirmation. e yet the masses and the popular cry i' that itis not the ca(S. If the Itepubli ean party is rightl then why is it Ilhal from every section of this broad land we hear the cry of hard limes? Why ie iit that the prudeer and found ation of all . wealth, the farmner, are day by d.ly le lng oppressed by caputal, and after seek -I Iog by every iavenue for relief, have or ganised themselves bly secret word and tr grip for the purpose or -.liet? Then thel trades unions, whose powerful organiza tions have assumed that character that bids defiance to law in their p)rol)portions, and now in one of our oldest States,refluirre g, the entire mrilitary toI preserve order? Does not this indicate that we need a ad cbange in our lhnanimal policy? And what can better bring about greatei id prosperity than free and unlimited coln aae of silver? Make the silver dollar se equal in value to gold; let its colonage bh unlimited; let the whole world bitng her by bullion to our mints and if it be oonnect upon a gold basis, where can be the de l( prediation? Make it a legal tender for all debts, piublic and private, and the g world will never have seen a greater era of prosperity than will come to us. º Many will say that. uch a flood of money will cause an ilflation. Will it not b.. b-hter than the continual struggle that we are passtng through? It will give the cless who need it most, the farm r and laboriig man, relief. It will destroy tih power of the contractlonist. Capital can 7* notdictlat terms tolabor. Dealersinop tions cannot depress the product of the at farmer.
