" Favorable to the Currency Bills Now Before Congress, hot Would Hasten the Retnra of American Bimetallism What Be Has to Say of Labor Problems Fnb. Mention of a Letter Two Tears Old Writ tea by Senator Rill. Lincoln, N'eb., Jan. 17. There was an interesting scene in the joint convention of the senate and house when the newly elected senator, John M. Thurston took the platform to tell his friends and ene mies where ho was "at" regarding the questions now pressing for solution. He said in part: "If the Republicans can se cure the necessary votes they bhould or ganize both branches of congress and fear-l-ssly assume the responsibility of legisla- latlon. The Republican party has always had the courage to fight in the open field, and its ultimate objects should not be party success, but the welfare of our coun try. I am iu favor of the speedy enact ment of a protective tariff law modelled upon the general lines of the McKinley act and embodying the reciprocity ideas of James G. Blaine. American Men for American Work. "It is my profound conviction that the prosperity of this country and its people especially of the industrial masses de pends upon the broadest application of the American idea that whatever labor is to bo done for the people of the United States shall be done by the peoplo of the United States, under the stars and stripes. and that tho prices of the products of American labor shall be fixed by Ameri can conditions and American competition. My general views upon the financial situ ation are as follows: Our people have been too anxious to pay off in a single generation the great war debt. Our gi gantic payments have taken too much of the gold out of tho country. Bow He Would Stop the Cold Outgo. "For tho present at least we should be satisfied with legislation under which we can refund our outstanding bonds at the lowest possible rate of interest, leaving further payments of principal to a more prosperous and favorable time. I would put a stop to the outflow of gold from the treasury first, by requiring that all im port duties should be paid in gold at tho option of the treasurer of the United States, and second, by insisting upon the right of redemption in either gold or silver of outstanding notes, whenever it becomes apparent that redemption is be ing demanded for speculative purposes. It is said that such a policy would drive gold to a premium. In my judgment we can better afford to have gold at n-prc- miuiu than prosperity at a discount. Believes In the National Banks. " I do not believe in any of the banking schemes which have been proposed by the dominant part in congress. No bank in the United ftates should be permitted to issue a single dollar until its redemption is fully secured by the deposit of govern ment bonds in the national treasury. There should be no resurrection of wild cat money by tho general government or by any state in the Union. Our national banking system should be preserved. It is the best human ingenuity hits yet de vised. I favor, amendments, however, in the following particulars: The substi tution of a low interest bond as security for the national bank issue; au thority to issue bank notes to the full amount of the bond deposits; collection of a tax on the entire authorized issue and the imposition of a heavy penalty or forfeiture of charter for failure to keep it all in circulation. Would Not Retire Greenbacks, "I do not agree with those who would retire our greenbacks and treasury notes. 1 am iu favor of keeping every one in cir culation, and there can be no danger in doing so if we will adopt the policy al ready stated of meeting all speculative de mands for redemption by tender of either golu or silver at the option of the govern ment in accordance with the specific terms of the contract. SILVER AND LABOR QUESTIONS. ' Believes In Bimetallism and Wants Its Re turn Hastened. "I am in favor of bimetallism, and in this the United States should lead the world. I do not admit the claims so per sistently made by advocates of free and unlimited coinage of silver that our present evils are the result of so-called silver demonetization; nor do I believe that the romonetization of eilver would produce any startling changes in exist ing conditions. I am satisfied, however, that the demonetization of one-half of the world's supply of the ultimate money of redemption was not for the best interest of the people of the world, and I think we should do everything in our power to hasten the return of bimetallism among the nations of the earth. " To those who fear the effect of Amer ican silver coinage I have this to say: We are not realizing financial prosperity un der existing gold monometallism, and it Is worth our while to try the experiment of a return to bimetallism. Tho legisla tion to accomplish this should, however, be carefully considered and wisely guard ed, and the mints of the United States should not be opened to the silver pro duct of any other country until these great nations are ready to join us in in ternational bimetallism. "I know of no reason why the United States should surrender its claim against the Pacific roads if it can enforce ultimate collection by a series of annual payment guaranteed by reasonable security. It Is urged, and quite plausibly, that such an extension of the debt would compel the people of the west to pay increased tariffs in order to enable the Pacific companies to meet the government requirements. In my opinion and I believe my great familiarity with the subject enables me to judge correctly such would not bo the ease." Referring to the labor question he said: "I am not in favor of a national hoard of arbitration modelled upon any plan sim ilar to the interstate commerce com mis sion. Such board would be entirely too sumoer-romc; too tar removed' Irom tne immediate locality of the disturbances, and would lock the one essential element necessary to suctesa. tliu ower of enforc ing its awards. 1 believe, however, a law can be framed to secure local arbitration of any serious differences between any interstate carrier and its employes; but such arbitration to be effective must bo binding upon both sides. 'I am not prepared at the present time to fonnalate any complete plan by which the general government can best promote the welfare of the laboring classes, but as a beginning I heartily favor the establish ment of a labor commission, or bureau, or department, which ijinll have general supervision of all matters pertaining to labor interests, which shall undertake tho collection of statistics and make full in quiry into the condition and requirements of the wage earners of the country." HILL FOH FREE SILVER COINAGE. Declares It the Cflal Which the Country Must I'ltiiuatcly Reach. New York, Jan. 17. A letter from Senator David. B. Hill, of New York, is published here today which will attract considerable attention a; bearing upon the campaign of ISH In it he declares that the free coin.-.jro of silver as well ns gold "must lie held out as the goal which the country must ultimately reach." Tho letter was written nearly two years ngo just prior to the memorable exfrn- session of lvi. to Clark Howell, editor of the At lanta Constitution, who gives it to t!:u public with the consent of S -nutor Hill. The letter liears date of July 13, lSXi. Hill beSings by saying that in the first and only interview he had with President Cleveland be urged tho calling of the ex tro session uf congress in Aprii of that year instead of September, the president's preference. The senator favors the un conditional repeal of the Sherman law, but nn acceptable substitute for it should be provided. "I am," he says, "in favor of bimetn'. isni ns the issue of I he future." He is for free coinage under an international agree ment, if possible, mid if not possible then for independent bimetallism. He says: "I do not believe in the Bland bill or any other measure which guarantees anything less than unrestricted coinnge for gold and silver uliko as pledged in the Democratic platform." Hill expresses himself as not in favor of the federal tax on state bank issues, but fears the consequences of a repeal of the tax, as he does "not like Midi wil l cat currency and never did.". He fears such an experiment will not be a success, and nd vises that this issue be not mized up with the li g il tender currency question. Wrestled for Two Hours. ST. L'.it'is, Jan. 17.
