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. T. II. JI.
