For The State Republican. AVasiiivoton, D. C, July, 00. Mr. Kmtor: We human beings constitute n strange race of mortals. The best of us arc liable to be bitten by "fads," to fall Into swirls, and to have our brains addled and our or dinary gcod common sense rattled by fashionable whims. In a recent ar ticle in your valued columns I called attention to the present prevalent mesmeric craze induced by gazing in anticipation on the sheen of moun tains of new silver dollars. Recur ring to the subject, I would remork that It Is not strange that Mr. Bland, who has for fifteen years gone, been chasing tho rainbow to catch the bags of silver swung to Its receding ex. trcmilles should have gone stark daft in the bowlldcrmcnt, but tho whole world was struck with amazement last week to seo the Btaid IT. S. sen ate dancing a jig to tho jingle of free silver. In the article referred to, I sub mttted tho inquiry m effect: "What benefit can iccniu to the western fanner by reason of the U. S. govern ment paying tho silver mino owner twcnty-flvo per cent, more for his white metal than it is worth i" aa M,r, Bla-.nd and the U. S. senate prdposo shall done. While my good farm er friends re figmlng that oUt 1 wrlM to submit anther' query in the foriii of a supposition: Rothschilds gets together one million o"""9 of sllvcr costing him $1,008,000 l llr ,n0,icy and ships it to one of m'"18 Fndcr the law, as Mr. Blanu' would have it, the mint has to take It and give him a coin certificate for 81, .'A"' 000. Baron Rothschilds takes his certificate to the U. S. treasury and draws out $1,21)2,000 in gold, which he ships to Europe ; with it he buy3 1,281,711! ounces more of sllvcr, re turns to the U. S. mint, leaves it and takes ills coin certificate for 82,050,- 008, cashes it at the treasury anil sails back to Europe with the gold ready to purchase another cargo of silver, nil within ono month's time I A nice profit of $018,008 for Baton Rothschilds to make out of this gov ernment wltnln 30 days! A nice thing for Mr. Bland to contemplate, perhaps! But wherein will it help the western farmer? How will he bo benefitted by that statesmanship which would enable the European bankers, or th2 New York bankers for that maMcr, for they have already boon shipping their gold to Europe ready to buy silver with to grab such enormous handfuls from the white and yellow heaps piled up by the national tax gatherers? My good farmer friends, having answered the former query, will please keep jn figuring until they arc able to point out where the benefit? the statesmanship? the common sense' the horse sense uic intiio sense? even the donkey sense comes in in this proposition? Where is tho Kl-ycar-old school boy but who will observe the absurdity of the whole thing when once the facts are placed before him? Is it not time for tho farmers to stop the jingle of free sil ver bilN of the whirligig in which certain would-be-statesmen are at tempting to rock-a-by them to a con tented sleep over a financial preci pice, long enough, at, tcasi, 10 cass about them and ascertain what tho facts of the case are? As I showed before, the house bill proposes to coin and throw into cir culation every ounce of American silver; it is not pretended that tho Bland bill could do any more in this direction, but what it could and most assuredly would do, would be us shown above, to enable Rocky moun tain, New York, London and Paris millionaires to rob the nation to an extent that is simply startling to con niplatc. For two days last week, Mr. Blaiul held the helm and had the power, a-t he certainly manifested the will, if ho had only had the tact and judgment, to have run the ship of state right on to the breakers with the first result ot splitting the republican party wide, open, to be followed by all the after wild consequences delineated. For the narrow escape of party and nation wc can offer no thanks to a republican senate ; whether wc owo the greater gratitude to the marvel ous incapacity of Mr. Bland to take advantage of the wonderful opportu nity thrust upon htm, or to the in domitable scourged firmness and sa gacity of Speaker Reed is a question over which future historians will philisophize much.
