REPUBLICANISM DEFENDED. t'oii;reNitmaii siiiIIIi'h Iteply to Towne at bnoid ICapbN TueMday Mglil, In his sH'ei'h in answer to ('oii'jress inan Towno bt'foro the uieetiner of wtatc Republican clubs Win. AldYn Smith p)ke as follows: 'l have been itvitcil by the com mittee of the state league of Kepubli can clulis to speak upon tlm issues, of the eominypiviiuYntial contest, and I assure you I yreatly esteem the honor thus conferred, it was not my own personal desire to have any controversy witli any man with whom I had had close personal relations in this canvass. 1 have not ono outside of my home to seek such an occasion, but after the elo tjuent address of my friend and col league hist nifht, 1 feel called upon to make some reply. ''Several years ajjo I had the honor to preside in this very hall at a meeting which was addressed by that magnetic and manilieent man, Wm. McKinley. Then this country was prosperous; but three and one-half years of Democrat rule and threatened free trade have left smokeless factory chimneys and emptied workshops. The speaker of last evenino- said in this very hall that the Democrat parly never could be trusted to outline a policy for this country. To paraphrase his very words of last evening "if lu. was honest then, is he honest now?"" '"Three and one-half years ayo, when the Wilson bill was framing, the youn,r orator of Nebraska, Mr. Bryan, went the length of all the free trade measures of which his colleague were the au thors. He told his hearers tnat free trade would help the farmer and help the lalxirin mm. Who was it that placed the crown of thorns upon the brow of labor? William J. Bryan helped to crueify that same American iibor, and now comes forward with mother proposition to wreck the coun try further. Having ;ono the lengths of free trade and free wool, they now propose to give us free silver and finish up the financial ruin. Just when we have been surfeited with free trade, it s unwise to tr fiee silver, which has never been advocated by our party or my other great party. It is unwise to oin sliver free at less than its com mercial value. The ratio of Hi to 1 was inaugurated it a time whu)-Jjin rlJ dollar, was made ine unit of value teeauso the old ratio of 1.1 to 1 would not do. In 11- (lermany decided that the increasing product of silver made it undesirable to extend to it the privileges of free coinage and therefore demonetized it. France and the Latin union closed their mints against the free coinage of ilver. The United States, which had not coined a silver dollar in many years, acting upon the advice of the secretary of the treasury, dropped from the privilege of the mintage the standard silver dollar of 4121 grains, the half dime and the three cent piece", but in the very same act it was provid ed that private owners of silver bul lion might bring it to the mint and the government would coin 120 grains into a trade dollar for private account. The trade dollar was made legal ten der for , hut it would not circulate, and in lSTS, at the request of silver mine owners, the Bland-Allison act was passed. Under it $2.tMH.(HK worth of silver bullion was purchased and coin ed into standard silver dollars of 412i grains, each a full and unqualified legal tender. But the price of silver continued to go down and the vast an nual output offered upon the London market in excess of the demand of trade fixed the price of every grain of standard silver. But the silver mine owner again atne to the government and wanted more legislation. And the Republican party passed the Sher man law of Ivh), py which the govern ment should purchase four and a haif million ounces a month and .". mil lions of dollars was thus invested in silver bullion, all of which is now cir culating among the people, either a silver dollars or certificates represent ing bullion. In Mexico today a silver dollar can Ik; iMiught for cents, and every dol lar of gold ha been driven out of cir culation in Mexico by that same free coinage act. Why is it we can buy two silver Mexican dollars for one of this country "s coinage ' Because that government has lost the power to main tain the value uf its money. But our dollar U backed up by gold, and that is why our silver dollar i worth a dollar. We can control the output of silver In our mints, but Mexico can not, anil that free and unlimited coinage lias ruined the currency of the country. Can Mexico buy what she wants in the markets f the world on a silver standard? Xo; nhe must buy on a gold standard, and when she sells to Kurope she must take u dollar whose value is only Tl cents, at a full dollars' value. "Mr. Towne laid great stress upon the competition wJth this country of China and Japan. The Japanese min- Highest of all in Leavening ABOILDTEILY PURE ister who recently came to this coun try, said the other day that Japan was not satislied with silver as a medium of trade except with India and China. I venture to say that before the next presidential election the new Japan will declare for gold. My oung friend said that it was not the Mexican " cent dollar that he feared, but the lino cent dollar. How could he con ceive of a 200 cent dollar, when he could not conceive of a oO cent dollar? Ho said that the cheapening of money did not run up the price of commod ities it purchased. An iron bedstead in Mexico costs $18.(H); here, 30; a pair of blankets, there (i.OO; here,.'! 4" An ingrain carpet here costs .0 cents a yard, there 1.2. to $2.2". How much will it cost to live heie under the free and unlimited coinage of silver'."' ''William J. Bryan has made himself famous by the phrase "crucified on a cross of gold." But Christ was not crucified upon a cross of gold; he was bartered away for .'0 pieces of silver. No wonder the white metal smells of treachery. "If I am elected to represent this district again in congress, I shall again espouse the cause of Cuba's freedom, as I haye done before. I apologize for none of my acts, and hope to have no occasion to. I believe we are upon the eve of victory, and that under the re - newed Republican rule will come re newed prosperity."

"The Treasury Department is the steam plant from which all the other departments get their power," writes ox-l'resident Harrison in an article on "The Secretary of the Treasury," in August Ladies' Home Journal.

KAN A Itl.lMl I'M). For some time past Wm. Sloan and I'Yank Cole have leen running a blind pig, as it is called, at Luins, having only a state license. The village board met and made complaint The charge is that Sloan and Cole have been sell ing liquor illegally, and selling on legal holidays. Sloan and Cole got wind of the meeting and skipped. Deputy Sheriff Brown captured them, however, at South Riley, 10 miles southeast of Fowler, after a hard chase. Sloan is the man who was ar rested at Ionia, July 4, for selling liquor without a license, ami Is now out on bail-on that account. Cole's parents live between Fowler and Maple Rapids, and are wealthy. Both waived examination. About sixty relatives and friends met last Saturday afternoon at F. A. Fuller's in Otisco, for n surprise on Mrs. Chapman it Iteiiig her Mist, birth day. Tables were set in the grove and seemed to groan under the load of pro visions they were obliged to sustain. A right jolly time was experienced by all. and Mrs. Chapman was the re cipient of several beautiful presents, some coming from Washington and Chicago. Mrs. J. Luick presented the company's donation in a short and neat speech, to which Mrs. Chapman although somewhat overcome, express ed her thanks in a very appropriate manner. Among the guests present were Mr. and Mis C. Merritt, and Mr. and Mrs. Ceo. Perry of (Jreen vllle. Harry Lester and wife have returned from their visit in Albion. Tower. Latest U. S. Gov't Report. SILVKIt AM KiOl.lt. Many jieople do know what is the diffe re nee between a standard dollar and a standard measure or unit of values. The law says: The standard for both gold and silver coins of the Uuited States shall be such that of one thousand parts by weight nine hun dred shall be of pure metal and one hundred of alloy. See law, section XH. Thus you see that they con found a standard measure or regulator of values with a standard dollar; 412i grains of standard silver is a dollar, and 23 8-10 standard gold is a dollar, but few persons know that If the word standard dollar means a unit or meas- ure of values, then both the gold and j silver would Ik a measure of values, ; But the law of 1ST.'! makes gold the unit of values. The gold dollar does not now, nor neer did, get its value from the law. The law enacted that so much gold, whose commercial value anv where in any civilized country in the world was worth one hundred cents, should bo the unit of value, hence our I present gold standard regulator of j values got its commercial value from the law of supply and demand, a land ! which God made. The gold dollar did not give value to Itself, neither did the J laws of Congress give it value. But j Congress made it lawful for 100 cents' worth of standard gold to regulate values existing in all other articles of commerce, and silver was not made a Unit of values, hence all this fuss and feathers about free coinage of silver. By examination of the official records will In; found that our gold standard has not fluctuated either up or down the one-eighth of 1 mill in the last fifty years; that it will sell for 100 cents to the dollar in every civilized country in the world, including the silver standard countries. Because of the fact that gold is indestructible aud ,.y.c stable and less liable to change, HrdVsSnosfc "universally V'iJ ,,,14. r of valiK t". it sells just a readily for 100 cents in the silver standard countries of China, Mexico, South America. Japan and India as it does in labor bureau shows that our common day laborers get from tl to LoO per day. KIMt Mi KIM.KV AM IIOItAKT.
