Mr. Bryan's train hauled up at the Tillage of Madeline, In Northern New York, for the purpose of oiling the en gine. This delay gave opportunity to the candidate for the performance of his usual act, and the depot loungers were edified by the following deliver ance from the rear platform: say. Increase the demand for liver by legislation, and that new de mand, acting with the demand now in existence, will operate upon the price of silver. We say that the new demand will be sufficient to consume all the sil ver coined at the mints, and. being sufficient, will raise the value of silver bullion to $1. an ounce throughout the world. We have a reason for our be lief. They simply say it won't do, and then sit back and propose absolutely nothing." Thus, It appears, the thing which Mr. Bryan is striving for In this campaign is an increase In the price of silver bullion to J1.I9 per ounce. To produce this result, he shows, it is only neces sary to Increase the demand for silver bullion; to increase that demand It is only necessary to Increase the con sumption of silver: to increase the con sumption of silver It is only necessary for this country to adopt a law pro viding for the unlimited coinage of the commodity of silver into United States dollars free of charge. What a clear and convincing reasoner Mr. Bryan surely Is. How triumphantly he over throws the gold bug objection to the present coinage ratio of silver that it is of uncertain value, and not the equal In purchasing power with gold. A cer tain lawyer objected to a ruling of the late Chief Justice Carter, on the ground that there was no law for It. "Then I will make a law," was the answer of the learned chief justice. And so it is with Mr. Bryan. "You say." he says, to the gold bug. "that silver is not worth the present coinage ratio with gold?" "Then I will make it so." "I will make a law that it shall be worth exactly J1.29 per ounce in gold no more and no less." What a simple process. and how the suggestion shows up the strong and logical Intellect of Candi date Bryan. It is true he doesn't ex plain how the coinage of all these un limited dollars would help the destitute toilers of this powerful nation. It is true that McKInley, In his letter of acceptance, tries to make a point against Mr. Bryan's beautiful free sil Ter theory by warning the people that they might have to work Just as hard to get one of those Bryan dollars as they used to have to work for the dol lars of Harrison's administration. It is true that McKInley attempts to fur ther show the worklngman that when he found somebody who has work for him to do In exchange for one of these new sliver dollars, he might find that it was not the same dollar which he received w hen Harrison was president, j But then, that is a small natter. Let ! Mr. Bryan once demonstrate how sen ator Stewart and the other silver min ers can find a market a place of con sumption, i. e.. the government mint for their silver product, and then the question of how other poor men are to get the new free silver dollars will be looked Into. Creat reforms move slow ly. It Is too much to expect Mr. Bryan to do everything at once. He got free trade for the country at the last elec tion. He expects to get free silver at this, and then, perhaps, he will take up this question of how people are to come into possession of and use Mr. Stew art's dollars during the next presiden tial contest. Give Mr. Bryan time. Give him time and rope, too, for that matter. He will make it all right it will be all right with him In November. dollar, then the silver producers de mamW that the government should buy silver and coin It. They hud politi cal power enough to hold the balance between the national pantos, and they coerced the government ' purchase a single product of our Industry and maintain It In the markets of the world. This has been done at the cost of hundred of millions of dollars to the people of our country, and most of the financial and Industrial disturbance today results solely from the general distrust, at home and abroad. In the In tegrity of the government and the hon esty of our money.

BL'CKLE.VS ARNICA SALVE. me rree coinage of silver was not wanted by the producers of silver In 1S73, when Senators Stewart, Jones and other blatant free silverltes demanded that gold should be the standard of value. They did it because the sliver dollar was then worth more than the gold dollar, and they could sell their silver bullion for higher prices than they could get for it In coin. When sil ver declined in value because of Its enormous production the silver produc ers were the first to demand that the government should coin their product to Increase Its market value. To oblige them the government coined over 33, 00.000 of trade dollars under the act of 1S73, not one of w hich then circulat ed In this country, for the reason that they were worth J1.07 in gold; but they were coined In the interest of the silver producers, to dlrpose of that amount of silver in our trade with China, India and Mexico, believing that our dollar, being a shade more valuable than the silver dollar of other countries, and much more attractive, would remain In circulation there.
