John M. Thurston and other members of the notl Mention commit tee of the Jtepubllcan national con vention Gentlemen: In pursuance of the promiso made to your committee when notified of my nomination as the Republican candidate for presid ent, I beg to submit this formal ac ceptance of that high honor and to consider In dotal! the questions nt Is sue In thopcndingcampulgn. Perhaps this might be considered unnecessary, In view of remarks on that occasion, and those I have mado to delegations that have visited mo since the St. Louis convention, but in view of tho momentous importnnco of tho proper settlement of, the Issuo presented on our future prosperity and standing ns a nation, and considering only tho welfare and happiness of our people, I could not 1)0 content to omit again calling attention to the questions which, In my opinion, vitally effect our strength and position among tho governments, of tho world, and our morality, integrity nnd patriotism as citizens, of that Republic, which for a "century past has been the best hope, of tho -world, nnd Mm Inspiration, of mankind. Wo must not now prove false to our own high standards, of government, nor unmindful of tho noblo example and wlso precepts, of tho fathers, or of tho conlidenco nnd trust which our conduct, In tho past, has always Inspired. He places tho discussion of tho money question first, but makes tho usual arguments for protective tnrllf. THK BIIA'EK QUESTION. For the first time tince 1868, if ever before, there li presented is presented to the American people by a clear and direct issue as to our monetaiv system, ol vast impoitancc in its effects and upon the right settlement of which rests hugely tho financial honor and prosperity of the country. It Is proposed by one wing of the Democratic party and its allies, the people's and silver parties, to inaucurate free and unlimited coinage of silver by independent action on the part of the United States at a ratio of sixteen ounces of silver to one ounce of gold. The mere declaration of this purpose Is a menace to our financial and industrial interests and has already treated universal alarm. It involves great peril to the credit and business of the country. , .... The meaning of the coinage plank adopted at Chicago is that any one may tako a quantity of silver bullion, now worth 53 cents, to the mints of the United States, have it coined at the rxpense of the government and receive for it a silver dollar which shall be a legal tender for the payment of all debts, public and private. The owner of the bullion would get the silver dollar. It belongs to him and nobody else. Other people would get it only by their labor, the products of their land or something of value. The bullion owner, on the basis of present values, would receive a dollar for 53 cents' worth of silver and other people would be required to receive it as a full dollar in the payment of debts. The government would get nothing from the transaction. It would bear the expense of coining the silver and the community would sufler loss by Its use. "We.liaye coined since 1878 more than 400 000,000 of silver dollars which are main tained by the government at a parity with cold and are full legal tender for the pay ment of all debts, public and private. How are silver dollars now In use different from those which would be In use under free coin ace? They are to be of the same weight and fineness, they are to bear the stamp of the Snt.7 Why would they not e 0 the Same value? I answer: The silyer dollars now in use were coined on account of the government, and not for private gain, and the government has solemnly agreed o keep ftem as good as the best dollars we have. The government bought the silver bq Hon at its market value and coined it Having the exclusive control of the mintage it only coins what It can hold at a parity with gold. The profit representing the difference between the commercial value o silver bullion and the face valued me suvcr u . " government as benefit tolhepcop.

There would be nn obligation resting upon the government lo do It. an4 if there were, it would be powerless to dolt, 'i lie simp e truth Is, we would be driven to a silver basis r lo silver motiomc'alism. These dollars, therefore, would Hand upon their real Viilue. "If Ike frea and unlimited coinage of sil ver, at tht ratio of 16 ounces uf silver to one ounce of gold would, at some of Iti ndto cates aseit, make 53 cents in silv,r wurth loo cents, and a silver dollar equal 10 a gold dollar, then w- would have tto cheaper money than now, and it would be no easier to get.

'Cold has been driven out of circulation Inthrse countries and they arc on a silver basis al me. Until an International agreement is had, it h the plain duty of the United Stalos to maintain the gold standard. ' "The Republican party hat not been, and Is not now, opposed to the uic,of silver money, as Its records abundantly show. It has done 11 that could be dono for lis Increased use with safety and honor, by tho United States acting apart from other govcrments. There are those who think it has already gone be ytnd the limit of financial prtidence. Surely we can go no further and we must not permit false lights to lure us aross the danger line. "The Republican party h4s declared in fnvpr of an International agreemeat and, If elected president, it will be iny duty to em ploy all proper means to promote it. Tho free coinage of Mlvcr in this country would defer, if not defeat, International bimetallism and until an international agreement can be bad, every Interest requires us to maintain our present standard. "It Is not the increase in the volume of money which is needed at this time, but an in crease In the volume of business; not an in crease of coinage, but an Increase of confi dence j not more coinage, but a more active use of the money coined; not open mints for the unlimited coinage ol the silver ol the world, but open mills and full nnd unre strlcted labor of American worklngn.cn, " Dangerously Hurt Itosununa, Or., Auk. 27.
