An Introductory' tcli of an hour was made by Hon. khn J. Lenvif Ohio, a sliver canuio- for coiitf rus "Mr. Chairman, Ladles and gontle- tn-Wlicn our party at Chicago ute the plat form which It did, we ev that It would offend some peo- . So party can take a plaln.strong, iplmtlc position upon any question thout offending somebody. We de- red In tho platform ror what we bc : . . , , ,,.., i, icd was rigiii, we ucscnwu me pu- which wo believed were best for American people, and wc know I It would alenlate some. Let me fclmicnftheplatiksof that platform; are pwf d to the Is tie of Inter llwirlnir Imnds by tho United E te-t In time of peace, and condemn irnllli'Mug with banking syn ate.- which, In exchange for bonds ! nt an enormous profit to them- Fi'S,supply tho federal treasury 1th to ntahittiiri t lie policy of gold loiiictnllNai.' That Is one of tho iks thiit was not .put In to attract love of those who have grown rich of the government's extremities, did not expect those who have a vsayc-wny from tho federal trcas- to their olllces to Join with us In ingup the passage. We did not feet those who nro making a profit M the cnibarnissment it brings to treasury to Join with us in putting end to tho gold standard. 1 say (Platform was not written toat- t their votes. It was written be- s vie want to destroy tho business blch they are engaged. K my friends, If those who have s a profit out of tho government's P'lal policy arrnv t)irmc.u-u ost tho Democratic party, may expect thoso who believe that Je light to come to our rescue and 1111 tip the ranks that are being de pleted by their desertion? If we must part company with those who bellovo In aKovcrnmcutof syndicates, by syndicates and for syndicates, may wo not appeal with confidence to those who believe that a government of the people, by the people and for tho peo ple should not perish from the earth? If these men who pride themselves upon their prominence In the business world nndwlio glory in the tltlo of business men arc going to make a business out of politics, are going to use their ballots to Increase their in come, I beg you to consider whether the great tolling masses of thtsnation have not n right to make a business out of politics also, and protect their homes and families Lfroni disaster, The founders of ourgovemmcut never considered that the time would come when thoro would be only a few peo ple In tills country who were compe tent to settle great public questions. ir they had. they would have written In the constitution that, on most questions, almost everybody could vote, but on money questions, only financiers could vote. "Our opponents, of the gold stand ard Democracy, are all linked together as to the policy which should bo pur sued. They all want tho same object; they all want to elect a Republican candidate, localise they believe that Democracy Is better exemplified through Ropubllcanism. Some of our opponents say that the gold standard Is a good thing, whllo others say, "What wo want is bimetallism, but wo cannot have It until somebody helps." If tlio gold standard Is a good thing, why should we want bimetal lism? And yet If t hoy ever have two men making speeches, the same night, the chances are 10 to 1 that one of them will praise the gold standard as a good thing, while the other will tell you how anxious they arc to get rid of It. One man says tho reason why ho docs not want free coinage Is that ho docs not think the government should pass u law that will enable tho silver miners to take CO cents' worth of sil ver bullion and convert It Into 100 cents. Of course, ho may bo In favor of a system of taxation that would glvo 200 or 300 per cent profit, but that docs not count; It Is n terrible thing to allow tho silver-miner to make that profit. Then tho next man who comes up will say that, as a matter of fact, tho stamp, of tho gov ernment, adds nothing to tho value of tho metal, and that free coinage of silver simply means that you convert CO cent' worth of bullion Into a 50- cent dollar, and nobody makes a profit out of It. Now you can see the ab surdity of It. If the Bllycr-mlner, under ttie law of free coinage, finds that ills silver bullion has raised so that that which Is now worth fiOcents will be worth 100 cents, then there arc no fio-rent dollars; ' arm If the other man Is coned, and the lawadds j nothing to the value or the mctal.uud j you simply convert CO cents' worth of silver Into a CO-cenl dollar, then the mine-owner litis not. made a cent. i "Well, then, you hear another' speaker say there lias been no full In prices, and he will denounce tho pen pic who are .complaining that gold has risen In price, and then his col leagues will tell you that not only have prices rallen, but that Itlsthe greatest blessing In the world to have prices fall. Our opponents do not daro to say that ths gold standard Is a good thing, because no party In the history of this country has ever de clared in favor of a gold standard, nnd they do not dare to say that the gold standard Is a bad thing and tell 70,000,000 of liberty-loving people that they have got to stiller until some for eign nation brings them relief. What Is theprlnclplo that underlies It all? It Is that the law ol supply and de mand applies to money as to every thing else. Increase tho amount of money more rapidly than the demand for money Increases, and you lower the value or a dollar. Decrease the quantity of money while the domand for It Increnscs, nnd you Increaso the value of a dollar. When you under stand that principal, then you under stand why the great crusado In favor of the gold standard finds Its homo among tho holders of fixed invest ments, who, by such legislation, raise tho value of tho property which they hold. When you understand tho effect of tho policy, and then under stand that the dcslro for it Is mani fested mostly among thoso who hold fixed lnvestmoutsand trado in money, I think you will coma to the conclu sion that I have that tho tact that tho gold standard Is a good thing for them is the principal reason why they are In favor of a gold standard.

Mr. President. I now cofiie toono or tho most remarkable and to my mind one of tho most fraudulent pieces of legislation this or any other country over saw. I refer to the manner of tho passage of tho bill demone tizing silver. I will not occupy tho time of tho sennto by going over the whole history of this most Iniquitous transaction. Mr. Hooper, since deceased, was at tho time chairman of tho committeo having charge of a out which uau oeen rcrcrrcu tonis committee, nnu on .May v.1, ihti', reported a substitute and moved to suspend the rules nnd pass tho substitute, upon which motion, among other tilings, tho following occurred, which any sena tor can find by turning to the Congressional Globe, parte, pago 388.1, and It Is at follews: Mr. Ilolmuu. I supposo It Is Intended tohavothe bill read baforo It is put on Its passage. f The Speaker. Tho substitute will bo read. Mr. Hooper, of Massachusetts, I hopo not. It is a long bill, and thoso wuo nro interested in it nre poriecuy nuniiiar witu its provisions Mr. Kerr. Tho rules cannotfbo suspended so as to dlsponso wl init of tho b . f Tho Speaker. They can be. Mr. Kerr. I want tho houic to understand that It Is attempted to put through tho bill without being toad. Tho Spcnkci. Does tho gentleman from Massachusetts Mr. Hooper movo that the reading of the bill be dispensed with? Mr. Hooper, of Massachusetts. I will so fnime my motion to suspend tho rules that it will dispense with tho reading of tho bill. Tho Speaker. Tho gentleman from Massachusetts moves that tho rules bo suspended and that tho bill pass, tho reading thereof bolng dispensed with. Mr. Randall. Cap not wo have a division of this, motion? Tho Speaker. A motion to suspend tho rule can not bo dl Idcd. Mr. Randall. I should like to have tho bill read, although I am willing that tho rues shall bo suspended as to tlie passage of tho bill. Tho question was put on suspending tho rules and passing tho bill with out reading; and (two-thirds not voting in favor thereof) tho rules were not supended. Mr. Hooper, or Massachusetts, I now move that the rules be suspended, nnd tho substitute fur tho bill relating to mints nnd coinage pass?d;aiHi I nsk that the substitute bo read. Tho clerk began to read tho bill. Mr. Brooks. Is that tho original bill? Tlie speaker. Tho motion of tho gentleman from Massachusetts Mr. Hooper applies to the substitute, and that on which tho house Is called to act Is being read. Mr. Brooks. As there Is no debate, tlie only chauco wo havo to know what wo nro doing Is to havo both tho bill and tho substitute read. The Speaker. Tho motion of tho gentleman from Massachusetts bolng to suspend tho rules nnd pass tho substitute, It gives no choice between tho two bills. Tho house must cither pass tho substitute or none. Mr. Brooks. How can wo chooso between tho original bill and tho sub stitute unless wo hear them both read? Tho Sneaker. Tho gentleman can vote "ay" or "no" on tills question whether this substitute shall bo missed. Mr. Brooks. I am very much in the habit of voting "no" when I do not know what Is going on. Mr. Holmaii. Befuro tho question is taken upon suspending tho rules nnd passing tho bill, I hopo tho gentleman from Massachusetts will explain tho leadlnir changes made by this bill In tho existing law, expcclally In refer ence to tho colnnge. It would seem that all tho imall colnago or tho country Is Intended to bo rccolncd. ... Mr. Hooper, of Massachusetts. Tills bill makes no changes in tho exist ing law in that regard. It docs not require the rccolnago of tho snmll coins. Tho question being taken on tho motion or Mr. Hooper, or Massachusetts to suspend tho rules and pass tho bill, It wns agreed to; thoro being ayes 110, noes 13. And so the rules wore suspended, and tho substitute passed without Its ever bolng read or any member of that body knowing tho contents or It.
