Btjstow, April '23. Sr.NATOrt ISHAM G HARRIS I X l t HHI-M tho ,Ut llf 'I 1 IIHOKITIIO thn I'lii.im l.il Oiii't inn, III an interview Monday at Mem. phis, Senator, Harris, whi n linked: "Senator, what is your opinion m to the dominance of the free nilver ntinieiit in IheSouth and West in relation to the campaign of LS'JilV" replied: " Hie utilization and rehabilita tion of silver to its position as a money nn ta! and a money of ulti mate redemption and, in connection with gold, as the regulator of vol ume or amount of that thing called money, i.tovorwhelmingly strong in the South and West, and, in my opinion ought to be strong and con elusive everywhere. - "If people would recognize tho undeniable fact that money is pure ly the creature of the law, it is now, always was and always will be just what the law of its own country makes it, and when it passes ln y.ond the limits of its own country it is not money, but immediately be comes a commodity, which goes upon the market at its market val ue, just as your bale of cotton, hogs head of tobacco or bushel of wheat goes upon the foreign market at its value. "I assert and maintain that it is the imperative duty of the Congress or tne unnoii mates to esiaonsn and maintain a financial system Re sponsive to the necessities and con venience of the 7U,U!)(),(RH) people that we represent wit hout regard to the outside world. "Silver must have its place in the )olicy of this country, and the par ties of l!S',)(j may well look to it as an issue that will not down, but. must, be heard and answered. "Now, as to the question ns to whether the United States should tablish its financial policy in con formity with the f"aneial policies of other commercial count ries, or a policy winch will meet the necessi ties and convenience or its own i()r 0(10,000 f people. 1 want t sug gest, that I got up the statistics in 181)1) showing the results of our for eign and interstate commerce for the twenty preceding years. The balance of traie.wilh other coun tries was against us only four of the twenty years, and aggregating for the four years less than i 0,000,000, while for t he sixteen other years of the twenty the balance of trade was in our iavor, averaging over 100,- 000,000 a year.. "While I would be glad to have an international agreement to' util ize all the gold and all the silver of the world at an agreed ratio, I am ready to establish a financial sys tem for the United States which does recognize both metals and makes them legal tender money for all purposes and admits them to the same rights of coinage. "Up to 1873 gold and silver held their respective places as the money metals of tho world, but in 1873 the capitalistic influences, not only of the United States, but of tho com mercial world, decided to double the purchasing power of their cap ital by demonetizing one or the other of the money metals, no mat ter which, so that on demonetizing, either the volume or tho amount of money would bo reduced one-half, which would double the purchasing power of every remaining dollar. "Capital has leisure, capital has influence, capital has purpose, but, unfortunately, capital has no con science. Capital had silver demon etized when 112 grains of the stan dard silver dollar was worth on the markets of the world 3 cents more than the gold dollar, and capital and its cohorts are now rampant in urging the adoptiou of the gold standard and reducing everything to that gold standard." . Senator Jeffreys' fee bill, which has been published in the Ameri can, and which provides for turn ing into the treasury of all receipts in fees in excess of $3,000, has been made the special order in the sen ate for 10 o'clock this morning. It is recoimnended by the judiciary committee for passage. American April 25. Will we incorporate, or will we not incorporate, is still a question.
