The Frnar au4 tb Tariff
Thre is probably uo class of men in
the country, not even the manufactur
ers, who have suite red more during the
past four years on account of threat
ened and accomplished changes in the
tariff than have the farmers. The
threat of modifying the tariff, on free
trade lines, commenced its mischevious
work as soon as the result of the elec
tion in ls'J2 was known. From that
time on the agitation of the subject
was a constant menace and a disturb
ance to business of all kinds, until the
passage of the Wilson -(iorman act com
pleted the destructive work. The
farmers have suffered in two ways.
In the first place the paralysis of gen
eral business, and especially of manu
facturing, lias diminished the consum
ing power of the country so that the
home market is nowhere near as good as
it was in the prosperous times of 1892.
In the next place the Wilson tariff
gave unfair advantage to the fanners
and wool growers of other countries.
These are the main causes of the pres
ent low prices of farm products. A
third cause, which applies particularly
to wheat, is the opening up of new ter
ritory in the Argentine Republic and
in Russia, and the improved means of
transportation by which their surplus
can be taken to the Kuropean markets.
The last named cause is beyond our
reach. The other two can be remedied
by the voters at the next election.
What the farmer needs more than any
thing else is to have the tariff question
settled on the protective policy and
settled for a life time, so thoroughly
settled that he will have time to raise
and market a crop le fore the question is
again agitated time to grow a flock of
sheep and get some benefit from them
before the tariff on wool is again taken
off. There is one way and only one to
accomplish all this and that is to elect
McKinley president with a good Re
publican majority in congress. Hut
multiplying words on the subject is
superfluous. The. whole case was suc
cinctly stated in a single sentence by
Mr. McKinley himself in a recent
speech, in which he said, "What this
country needs is to get back to that pol
icy that will give us work and wages."
W hat I Free Coinage?
A good many inquiries are made of
the newspapers as to exactly what free
and unlimited coinage of silver means.
It means that any one, citizen or for
eigner, individual or corporation, may
take bullion, old spoons or foreign
coin worth 53 cents, and have it coined,
free of cost, into a dollar with a debt
paying pow-er of 100 cents. The word
unlimited means that there should be
no restriction as to the amount of silver
thus coined, and the word indeiendent,
often used in this connection, means
that this government proposes to try
that experiment without reference to
what any other nation is doing. Under
the Itland act t he government pur
chased bullion in open market and
coined 2,000,000 silver dollars per
month and made whatever profit there
was on the coinage. Under the Sher
man act it purchased 4,500,000 ounces
a month and either coined it or issued
silver certificates against it, the profit
going into the treasury. Under the
plan proposed by the Chicago conven
tion and the free silverites the profit
would go, not to the government, but
to the individual or corporation that
carried the silver to the mint.
McKinley ou the Value of Labor.
No worthy American wants to reduce
the price of labor in the United States.
It ought not to Ih' reduced; for the sake
of the laborer ami his family und the
good of MM'ioty it ought to le main
tained. To Increase it would Ik in
better harmony with the public sense.
Our lalnir must not be debased, nor our
laborers degraded to the level of slaves,
nor any pauiMr or servile system in any
form, nor under any guise whatsoever,
at home or abroad. Our civilization
will not permit it. Our humanity for
bids it. Our tradit ions are opjniscd to
it. The stability of our institutions
rests upon the contentment and intelli
gence of all of our people ami these
can only 1k possessed by maintaining
the dignity of labor and securing to it
its just rewards. That protection
open avenues for employment, broad
ens and diversifies the field of labor,
and presents variety of vocation is
manifest from our own experience.

TIIK L'KIftIK OK 1873."
Sound Currency for June contains a
vury interesting article by Congress
man McCleary of Minnesota, on the
coinage act of 173 "the crime of 7.V
us frequently designated by cheap
money advocates, who charge it with
the stealthy and corrupt demonetiza
tion of silver.
Mr. McCleary shows conclusively
from contemporary records that the
bill instead of going through Congress
"like the silent tread of a cat," had
actually been before that body for
about three years; that it was printed
at least thirteen times; that It was
carefully debated in both houses (the
debates in the Senate occupying Wt
columns and those of 'the House 78
columns of the Congressional Globe);
and that with the exception of the sil
ver trade dollar to meet the wishes of
the Pacific coast, it finally passed sub
stantially as introduced. Every im
lortant feature of the bill was fully
explained in the original report and
repeatedly afterward in the debates on
the bill itself. Instead of the surreptl
tlous dropping out of the standard
dollar just lie fore the passage of trie
act, as so frequently alleged the fact
appears that the standard 412 grain
dollar (or any other provision for freo
coinage of silver) was never in the bill
from first to last.
The fact of and reasons for this
omission were carefully pointed out in
the reports on the bill and in the subse
quent debates; while from eonteinjior-
ury as well as earlier records, quoted
by Mr. McCleary, It Is apparent that
little significance was attached to such
omission, since it merely registered
what had been tho force of law for L0
years. The act of 1S.V1 establishing
our subsidary silver coinage upon a
limited tender basis wa9 universally
regarded as fixing our currency tinan
chilly upon tho standard of one metal
and that gold.
Mr. McCleary also exposes with
great clearness the Krnest Seyed myth,
and shows conclusively that the alle
gallons so widely circulated as to that
gentleman's corrupt connection with
the act are most audacious falsehoods.
The welfare of tho business Interests
of the country demands a return to the
conditions which existed previous to
the election of 1SS2. This can be at
tained only by voting the Republican
party back into power. The St. Louis
platform declares for protection and
reciprocity and for the maintenance of
the existing currency the money we
had in 1M)2 when all were prosjierous.

The Art of 1873.
The advocates of the free coinage of
silver, have, for years, been reiterating
the statements that the act of 1873,
stopping the coinage of the silver dol
lar, was surreptitiously passed; that
the members of congress, even, did not
know what they were voting for, and
that the act was passed at the instiga'
tion of men who were interested in
forcing a corner on gold. They have
repented these statements so often
that many have convinced themselves
of their truth. Even so well-Informed
a man as F. A. Raker, in his recent
ratification speech at the Auditorium
in Detroit, declared that it was a
"stealthy" act. They also speak of the
law as having "demonetized" silver.
An inquiry as to the exact facts in the
case is pertinent at this time.
There had been no general revision
of the coinage acts since 1837, and no
amendments adopted since 1853. In
1870 the secretary of the treasury, Mr.
Routwell, framed a bill intended to
bring under one chapter all the acts
relating to the coinage since the mint
was established in 1793. This was
printed and copies of it sent to experts
throughout the country; and after their
suggestions had been considered it was
introduced in the senate and referred
to the committee on finance April 28,
1870. It did not pass the senate until
Jan. 10, 1871, having Wen for some
months upon the files of members in
printed form. Previous to its passage,
w hich was by a vote of 30 to 14, it was
discussed for two days. Senators Sher
man, Sumner, Morrill, Ruyard and a
numWr of others having taken part in
the discussion.
The bill did not pass the house of that
congress, but was introduced in that
branch of the next congress March 9,
lf7l, by lion. Win. I). Kelley, of Penn
sylvania. Ten months later, Jan. 9,
H72, it was favorably reiHjrted by the
house committee on coinage, weights
ami measures, Mr. Kelley saying that,
in that committee, "it received as care
ful consideration as I have ever known
a committee to Wstow uion u meas
ure." It was discussed in the house by
Messrs. Kelley, (iarficld, Maynard,
Dawes, Holman and others, and May
27. 172, it was passed by a vote of 110
to 13. It went to the senate and, with
amendments, passed that body Jan. 17,
173. after a discussion which took up
P.i columns of the congressional (Jlobe.
In the house it was again printed, with
the senate amendments, in some of
which the lower Inxly failed to concur.
Conference committees were apjointcd
and their rejnirt was agreed upon by
both houses, the bill Wcoming a law
Feb. 12, 1873.
It will thus W wen that the bill was
Wfore congress and its committees
nearly three years. It was printed a a
congressional document 1 1 times, ami in
the rexrtofhedeputy controller of the
curency twice, making 13 times in all.
It was contdiered by the finance, oon
mitted of the senate and the committee
on coinage, weights and measure of
the house during fivo different ses
sions, and the debates on the measure
In the senate filled CO columns in the
Congressional lilobe, and those in the
house 70 columns. Surely there Is
nothing surreptitious nor "stealthy"
aiMut this
As to tho so-called "demontlzation"
of silver, neither that nor any other
act of congress ever took away from a
single standard silver dollar any legal
tender quality once given to it. The
silver dollars coined Wfore that time
were then, and have Wen ever since, a
legal tender for their face value. The
law simply discontinued the coinage of
the silver dollar, and its use as a stand
ard. The reason given by the director
of the mint, II. R. Linderraan, in rec
ommending the bill, was that "having
a higher value as bullion than its nom
inal value, the silver dollar long ago
ceased to be u coin of circulation, and
Wing of no practical use whatever, its
issue should be discontinued." The
comptroller of the currency gave a sim
ilar view, when, referring to the fact
that the silver dollar disappeared from
circulation long before 1873, he said:
"The coinage act of 1873 simply regis
tered in the forming of a statute, what
had been really Wen the unwritten
law for 40 years."
There was no trick and no secrecy
aWut the passage of the law. It was
a well-considered measure, und under
the conditions then existing, a wise
measure. It established by law a
standard which was already the stand
ard in fact, and it aided in the resump
tion of specie payments, which was
brought about by legislation adopted
two years later. The fact that enor
mously increased production of silver
has since depreciated the value of that
metal, does not discredit the judgment
of the congressmen of all parties, who
were considering the subject before
that Increased production any effect.
The Depreciation of Sliver.
The advocates of the free coinage of
silver charge upon the "crime of 1873"
the great depreciation in the value of
the white metal, and affirm that if its
coinage is resumed, free to all the silver
in the world, depreciation will cease.
A few facts are worth a volume of the
ories on this subject.
From the establishment of the mint
in 1713 till 1853 we had free coinage for
silver dollars and subsidiary coin, and
from 1853 till 1873 we had free coinage
for silver dollars, the government mak
ing subsidiary coin on its own account.
During this whole period of 80 years,
from 17U3 to 1873, with the mints open
to every one, the total coinage of silver
dollars was only 8,031,238, while the
gold coinage amounted to $1,010,900,
324, or about one hundred and twenty
six times as much in value as the silver.
Yet near the end of that period silver
was at a premium of three per cent
above gold, and hail an actual value,
as bullion, of $1.33 an ounce. From
1878, when the coinage of the silver
dollar was resumed, till 1810, there
were coined 42l,2M'.i.l10 silver dollars,
while the gold coined was valued at
$801,320,711, less than twice the coinage
value of the silver. Yet the latter
metal had depreciated in bullion value
to 05 cents an ounce. If with a coin
age of only $8,000,000 in 80 years silver
was at a premium, and if with a coin
age of $l21,ooo.ouo in 18 3'cars, it had
fallen off in bullion value 50 per cent,
there must surely be some cause other
than the coinage for the fluctuation.
The cause is clearly shown by tho
study of a few further figures. To go
back to 1S53, when the disproportion
between the production of the two
metals was the greatest, the world's
product of gold was 7,520,000 ounces
and that of silver was 31,300,000 ounces,
or only 4.10 times as much as gold.
The same year the product of gold in
the United States was 3,144, 000 ounces,
and that of silver only 40,000 ounces.
In other words we produced almost
eigty times as many ounces of gold as
we did of silver. From this time on
for t went j' years there was a gradual
diminution iu the amount of gold pro
duced in the world, and a steady,
though not very rapid, increase in tho
production of silver, till in 1872 the
world's production of the latter metal
had increased to 61,100,000 ounces,
while that of gold hail fallen to 4,820,
OoO ounces, the proportion Wing 12.C3.
In the United States gold had fallen to
1,711.50 ' t -es. and the silver had lu
cre;: .23 7,noo ounces.
vhen the Sherman law for
th .ase of silver was repealed,
th . ..Id's poluction of gold had
risen to 7,0o.i. ! ounces, while that of
silver had in. Teased to 100,092,000
ounces, the proportion Wing 21.83 to 1.
In the United States we produced
1,739,300 ounces of gold, and 00,000,000
ounces of silver. In other words, in
stead of producing 80 times as many
ounces of gold as we did of silver, as
was the case in 1853, we produced 34
times as many ounces of silver as we
did of gold. j
It requires no expert In iMilitical
economy to understand that, under
these circumstances, a change in the
relative value of the two metals was
inevitable. We must add to these
changes in production the fact thatsince
1853 all the commercial nations of
KurojM' have ceased to coin sil
ver as standard money. If we open
our mints to the free coinage of the
world's product the title would W Irre

maintain silver at par with gold on a
basis of 10 to I would W folly, (iold
would go out of circulation and we

value. We should W in poor condition
