Goldbug capitalist and their ad vocates in congress and journalism, in answer to the demand of the people for an expansion of the cur rency by the free and unlimited coinage of silver and its restoration to its place as one of the metals of final payment, get it down fine when they urge as an excuse for their contention that the govern ment would be acting dishonestly if it palmed off 50-cent silver dol lars on the people. But what do the people care whether the unlim ited coinage of silver should re sult in 50-cent dollars, as comlpared with the gold dollar, or not; they don't expect to buy any ofthe gold. B at they would have more dollars than they now have, and they could use each one of them for a dollar, and prices of all products would rise and they would again become proeper ons. A 50-cent silver dollar-it there be such a thing-would suit the people jnflnitely better than < does the now 200-cent gold dollar.- I1 Calidwell Watchman. Raptdes Democratsareso disgus I ted with gold bugism thatt t would be no serprise to Town Talk of the question of bimetallism and mope- ' metallism wasn't carried into local P polities, just as pro-lottery andanti lottery in the last caipaign.-Town GOODBYE WORLD, HOWDY HELL. Proctor Knolt'. Rac) letterl Read in the HIouse Debate. l)uring thlie debate in the house, elsewhere reported, MIr. Hatch read a letter fromn Proctor Knott, of Kentucky, to Senator Black burn. Our readers will doubtless! enjivoy this pirotluction of the Uman who delivered the famous D)uluth speech while in congress in the seventies, and it is given below in full, as we find it in the Congres sional lh-cord : ""I do not knoiw when my dermoc racy has been more comipletely out raged than by thel last insolent de iIman111d of the golelites that the gov ernment shall issue 5(K0),0(),000 in ~o.ld bonds and re.tire the treasury note circulation with the proceeds. They ijo not seem to want to leave us even a hereafter. (Laughter.) "'You know, as 'everybody else multst who has half as much sense as a sucking guinea pig, that when ever this governillmeint agrees to pay that uaiinnut or a tithe of it in gold, silver is doomned, so far as we are concerned to all enternity. As old .Judge Forbish said to Johnny Mooth-, it had 'jest as well say good-bye, world, and howdy hell.' (Laulghter.) "Great God ! how rapidly this long sutleiring peolle are being Sdriven to the dreadful alternative of slavery or inter.ecine strife, to determine whether they will tame ly hohl out their hands and have the shackles ot a remorseless plu tocracy ri\ eted upon their wrists or fight. "Now mark what I say, it the inexorable law of cause and effect has not beeni expungted from the statute book of the Almighty, uu less a halt is called p. d. q. you may expect to see the horrors of the French revolution put on the Aoerican stage with all the esn( ern improvemaents, and that within the next decade. "I remember I was suspected by some of mIav friends of political lu nawcv in ldm); because I predicted that in the event of Mr. Lincoln's election there would he a war be tween the states. They could not see why it ought to be so. Neither could I, but I knew the causes which were at work, and which would in the long run produce that result, and I regarded hjs election sinply as the spark which would explode the mine. So, when the fiery cloud appeared in less than one short year which deluged the country in blood for nearly a lus trum some of those who had thought me a croaker, a mere dys peptic pessimist, began to retgard me as Byron did Jeffreys--as "a d-d, disconcerning fellow." I tell you, Senator, in all seriouness, I see far more reason to appre hend the speedy approach of a ter rible revolution in this country than Lord Chesterfield saw in France when he wrote his historic prediction from Paris Nor am I alone. That gentleman, Astor, who went to England some time ago, bought him a place on the island, and became a British sub ject, saw what is coming as plainly as I do, so he took time by the forelock and skipped out when there was not such a rush for state rooms- as there will be after a while. Hle knew very well that if things should keep on as you and I have seen them for some years past, the time was not far off when there would be such a crowd of his class of people hur rying aboard every outgoing steam er he might beshoved ol the stage plank. (Laughter.) "Our good friend, Mr. Sibley, sent me a copyof his magnificent speech anent the Carlisle abortion theother day. I was sick in bed a when it came, lonesome and low-I spirited, my wife in Louisville un der treatment for her throat trou ble, and not a Gol-blessedl friend near me to cheer me up. Ireadit over, in some places two or three times, and it stirred my old blood like the call of the trumpet stirs that of the war horse, or perhaps you will understand me better when I say it acted on me like good wine-King Solomon's favor ite prescription to those that be of heavy hearts.' (As the average United States senator is not pre-' sumed to be familiar with the I Iwvritinv.- of that anii'n,!,t :iln thor, and f'l.c ..ilv r forevr.'" r (.\lpplau' .) Noi'c nf,rmi,.-t. SThe Over-Produc(llon hadow. T A few of the cotton pila ters t tlhe Southl I;\have wasted a great deal of valuable tie ti tr3 ilng to discover s some lmeans to reduce the pIrnFllte ri Lion of cotton, and seen:u to believe i that the low price is caused by e over-p riOdlction. I It must be sweet to the million aire ghll hlolders of Europe and the United States to see these rob bed people blaimiiug an inole iisive animaiill for stealiing their sustenance, anid followiilng its trail shouting ldeath to poor)1 "overplroduction," a while,they the real wolves, are , sitting back in their carpeted of fices smiling at the creduality of e people who ought to have imoresenll. It' there is any thing grown or iman ufactured in this country, (which is e not protected by patents,) that e is ;ot said to be produced more than; Sthe demand for it, point it out? To Inchu cotton, sugar, rice, corn. e potatoes, wool, hors'es, mules, sheep I cattle-everythiug the farmer has Y to sell is sold below the cost of pri. Stduction, because of over-production, and the manutifacurers will tell tou s that they can't make ally mlioneiy; that the market is overstocked, and e that it hardly pays the wear and tear ot machinery to keep runningiii e at the present prices they receive fir goods. s According to those peold,4 who shout "over- production,"jit wouold be t a good thing for every boly in the e United Staaes to take a year off llland fish and hunt for a living, or do nothing until conisumption catch . es up with production. We say to the cotton planters, u who have been running arter a shad dow, that it gold is continued the sole standard of value, as It is at this time, that iu two years a six 8 million bale cropof Annericau cotton will sell at 3 cents per pound for t middling. r If the people ever expect to get s higher prices for products they t must make silver a standard money. I These United States must again I open the mints to the coinage of the m noney named in the Constitution of our Republic-gold and silver. That was the law until John Sher man got it rebealed and became rich oy so doing. Re-enact the law that was in existauce and operative t during 70 years of the lite of this Union and all will be well. Let gold remain the sole stsndard of value and the ruin and distress throughout the length and breadth oj the land will be appalling. Town Talk. Hineton Ward is "Dry." An election was held in Hines ton ward on Feb. 2, 1895, for the 1 purlpose of taking the sense of the I qualified voters of that ward as to whether or not the sale of intoxica ting licensed and sold in that ward. The election resulted in 61 votes against license and 19 votes in fivorof license, so hereafter no in- I toxicating liquors will be sold in HIineston ward.
