Tho ambassador will Inspect tho military academy OAJBTOXUA. ru- 7 i ( M ItMT Saturday evening nt the armory was held the 11 rat public meeting of Bryan forces In Salem. Alderman W. T. Rigdon spoke on request of somo friends of silver In reply to T.T. Gccr. Although but llttlo advertised, It wart tho best attended political meeting held In tho Capital City this campaign, all classes being represented, ttor tornoy John Bayno presided, and pre sented the speaker, who needed no Introduction to tho pcoplo of Salem or Marlon county. With a view to accuracy of statement Mr. Iligdon read tho greater part of his speech from manuscript, but withal proved a pleasant speaker. Ho started out by dissecting Mr. Geer's boasted pros perity during tho Harrison adminis tration. This, tho speaker said was tho season of plenty brought on by going In debt, and that us soon as pay day camo the hard times came. Ho showed that ever slnco silver was demonetized the farmer's and laborer's share of profits had been growing smaller, whllo tho capitalists' share grow larger, until at present the farmers' and laborers of the land had no profit left, and capital Is making nil that Is mado. In other words legislation had been In the Interest or capital, trusts and combines, and proportionately ugalnss tho plain people. Legislation has In 23 years enhanced tho valuo of gold until It will buy twice as much as It would boforo tho law mado It tho solo standard of value This gold monopoly can bo broken In but ono way by peaceful methods (and wo prefer peaceful methods) and that way Is to bring It In competition with some kind of money that can swing upon I Is own hinges. Our friend claims that this is an effort to bene fit tho silver mlno owners and In answer wo chargo that his efforts are directly In tho Interest of tho bond holder, for wo have Mr. McKlnley's word for It that tho bondholder must have his .money dollar for dollar In gold coin; that Is ho Is Just as much entitled to his gold as was tljo soldier who fought tho battles for freedom. I believe that wo should kcop fulth with tho bondholder Just In propor tion to the faith tho bondholder kept with tho govcrcment, and tho with ful pcrformunco of tho soldier should bo rewarded accordingly. But I see no Justice In paying tho soldier with a dollar worth CO cents and pay ing tho bondholder with a dollar worth 200 cents. This great sollcltudo for tho bondholder Is born of a spirit that runs antagonistic to tho Interests of tho pcoplo and It is this sollcltudo shown by somo person on ovcry occa sion that has caused hundreds of thousands of our pcoplo to Investigate tho motives which are prompting this solicitude. If a man buys a hundred thousand dollars of United States bonds with a depreciated currency at par that man deserves tho protection of all tho special laws that can bo placed upon tho statute books, but If another man Invests a hundred thou sand dollars in sllvor mines he Is to bo looked upon with suspicion us ono whose Interests are opposed to tho people, and one who Is trying to flood tho country with 50 cent dollars! "Wo do not wish to mllllonarlzo the silver mmo owners neither do wo wish to multiply tho bondholders' profit. Every dollar paid to tho foreign bond holder saps so much of tho llfo-blood of tho people. Every dollar dug out of tho mines suppllcsaguln that circulat ing fluid. If tho bondholder draws more than tho miner can supply wo suffer from exhaustion, but If the ex ceis Is theother way wo enjoy prosper ity. "Wo aro told that silver was demon etized becauso tho two metals could not bo kept at par. Silver had been at a premium since 1853 and.thoreforo It ought to bo demonetized; on tho ame reasoning gold has been at a pre mium over silver, except when sup ported by gold, slnco 1873. Then on tlio samo reasoning gold should bo de monetized. We aro told that tho sil ver dollar Is worth only 63 centy bc (Contlnuedon second pugo.) From tho speech of John II. Mitchell In tho United States senato Jiinu nry 30, 1890: Much is said theso later times nbout "sound money." Tho terms nro Iterated and roltcrated In message, in documont, In newspaper, and In public speech. And what does It mean? If It means that tho gold dollar mid Its multiple can only bo rightfully denominated sound monoy, then I most emphatically deny tho proposition. If It means to Imply that cither a sllvor dollar or a legal-tender dollar, whoso purchasing and debt-paying power Is equal to tho gold dollar, Is not sound money, then 1 deny that. If It means, furthermore, that a gold dollar, which has appreciated from 30 to GO per cent, and to that extent has reduced the price of farm products and ovcry other commodity, Is a better dollar, a sound dollar, or even as good a dollar or as sound n dollar ns Is tho nondo predated sllvor dollar which passes at par In every part of tho Union, era legal-tender dollar, which Iskoptatpar and redeemable on presentation In coin, then I deny that. If, moreover, by the term "sound money" Is only meant that kind of money that passes In col nago form ns money In nil tho alnglo gold standard countries of tho world, then 1 deny that tho terms aro properly applied, us I bellevon groat nation llko ours, with a vast territory, Its 70,000,000 pcoplo, Its Immcasurablo resources, Its internal commcrco, and Its almost unlimited amount of business, Is not only capable of having, but In the Interest of all concerned, In my Judgment, should havo a domestic monoy of Its own, kept nt par nnd good os a home-purchasing and debt-paying medium In ovcry statn and territory In tho Union, and upon every foot or American soil. With such a domestic circulating medium, in sufllclont but not In redundant or In flated quantity, coupled with a protcctlvo tariff, tho Industries of this country would no longer languish, tho wheels of Its factories would bo put In motion, labor would find protltablo employment, our homo market would bo enlarged, nnd our farmors would rccelvoa fair prlco for their products, and thus bo enabled to pay their taxes, something they aro unablo to do now. If, furthermore, by tho terms "sound money" tho Impression is Intended to bo convoyed that all values must bo measured by a single gold standard, and only this Is sound monoy, nnd tlpit tho prlnclplo of bimetallism orjtha double standard, as It Is sometimes erroneously, as I think, called Is wrong nnd should bo repudiated ns unsound, thou 1 deny that, and I protest that such a doctrlno was hover yet declared by any of tho great parties of this country in any national platform during or slnco tho days of Washington, and It Is, moreover, In flagrant conflict with tho policy enunciated In ovcry national platform of ovcry party heretofore adopted In this country, and particularly that of tlio Republican party, which Is pledged unalterably to tho policy of bimetallism and against tho single gold standard to tho policy or tho uso of both gold and sliver as standard monoy, ENTHUSIASM FOR SILVER.
