Extract From a Speech Delivered in the United States Senate, " February 7, 1078. f 1 "1 believe tho struggle now going on In tills country nnd in other countries for a single gold standard would, if successful, produce wide-spread disaster In and throughout tho commercial world. Tho destruction of silver as money, nnd establishing gold as the solo unit of valuc.must have a ruinous effect on all forms of property, except those Inycstmonts which yield a tlxcd return In money. Those would be enormously enhanced In value, and would gain a disproportionate and unfair ndvantage over every other species or property. If, as thjs most reliable statistics nlilrm, there Is nearly seven billion dollars of coin or bullion In the world, very equally divided between gold and silver, It Is Impossible to strlko silver out of exlstenco as money without results that will prove distressing to millions mid utterly disastrous to tens of thousands. "I believe gold and sllvur coin to 1ms tho money of tho constitution, In deed, the money of the American people anterior to the constitution, which tho great organic law recognized as quite Independent of Its own existence. No power was conferred on congress to declare that cither metals should be money. Congress has, therefore, In my Judgment, no power to demonetize silver any more thnn 16 demonetize gold no power to demonetize either any more than to demonetize both. Few persons can be found, I apprehend, who will maintain that congress possesses the power to demonetize both gold and silver, or that congress could be justified In prohibiting the coinage of both, and yet in logic and legal construction It would bodllllcult to show whore and why the power of congress over silver Is greater than over gold greater over either than over tho two. If, therefore, sliver has been demonetized, I am In favororrcmonctlzing It. If Its coinage has been prohibited, I am In favor or ordering It to bo resumed. If It has been restricted, I am In favor or having It enlarged." j I The Cause in Iowa, Des Moines, Aug. ft. Tho gold standard convention of Democrats met at tho Savry house. About 40 do legates wcro In attendance, and tho meeting was harmonious. Tho ques tion of the advisability of putting a Democratic gold ticket in the Held was discussed atlength,the mnlnjques tlon being whether It would bo better not to vote fof McKlnlcy than put a ticket in the Held, which was consid ered equivalent to helping tho Repub lican ticket in a left-handed manner. Tho majority was in favor or another ticket, because the Republicans stand on the tariff could not bo Indorsed. will be a vast amount of timber Jj? said ho believed tho convention would aesiroyeu and other damago done. endorse Bryan and Sewall, and that HE GOLDEN RULE OF BUSINESS, Ap There is one store in Salem pf doing a cash business e have one rule for everybody w and make no exceptions, The New York Racket does not allow goods to j taken from the store until fully paid for, turned in the same condition as when Purchased we cheerfully refund money for fayWng bought of us, Doing uusiness on iUi u w , -- vjju poll w v.(ui give other you better values than merchants, W York Racket Qullty of Murder.
