JOHN F. BAIRD Publisher and Proprietor. I I ■ Piihllslted Kuril Friday *'2.00 A VEAU thoughts on the financial question, In the first place it seems to me that gold, as a standard of values, has lost its usefulness for the plain reason that it does not stabilize silver, platinum and many other j metals, yet is made money by the enaction of law only. The pro duction of gold cannot be regulat ed. H is produced from the earth only when some one is lucky enough to find it. It is so scarce that it can be, and is, monopolized by the inner circle of the banking trust and is used by them to create panics when there is no good rea son for them. It is poured out freely to those industries favored by the banking trust and withheld from their competitors to cause their ruin. It is subject to the law of supply and demand and the banking trust has the power to withhold the supply and thereby create an excessive demand -a sample of which is now before us Look at the subject from its present working and we see that a farmer, who a little more than a year ago, could pay his water bill of an equal amount as that of this year for 2J bushels of wheat to the acre, under the bankers' trust manipulated condition we pay ap proximately 9 bushels.,- _ ,-v . It requires a corresponding amount of wool, hay and othef P roducts to meet our obligations. ake it on a larger scale, our bonded indebtedness has trebled in value to the banker and bond holder and will require at least three times as much labor by us to pay these bonds as what we con tracted—and all other debts in pro portion. It is the most gigantic eteal in history. , It is not lower prices that we need but more money for what we produce. How can we get it? By having wheat made the standard of values and tie it to the dollar at the ratio of $2 20 per bushel, the fixed rate on which our indebted ness was created. Wheat has the natural elements to qualify it for the standard of values. It is produced from the earth, as is gold; but it can be produced from year to year with the same amount of labor and expense. If given a fixed value there will be no incen tive to try to monopolize it. The task would be too great, quantity produced would automat ically adjust itself. And though the government might sometimes be compelled to build elevators store large quantities, it is a good thing to have the assurance that bread is available. We are convinced that when wheat was selling freely at $2.20 a bushel times were good; and when we reverted to the gold standard the most terrible panic of all ages came on. The whole world, ex cept the United States and Great Britian, have discarded the gold standard. Some of them are at fault because of not having a sub stitute of a tangible'nature to base the value of their printed money on. If we ever expect to get from under a condition of slavery we must revise our financial system. Y ours very truly, DAVE FARMER. Nampa, Idaho, R. D. 2. DAVE FARMER WRITES. !
