priced of commodities which he said jjjid fallen and continued to fall SUcli JHPbe nomcnon as a constant progressive fall iri the general range of prices had al ways exercised so baneful an influence op the prosperity of mankind it uevip failed to excite attentionWhen fall in was found operating on the prod ucts all industries when it was found not to be confined to any 950 clime coun try or race but to bediffused over the civilized not to be a charac teristic of any one year but to go on for a series of years it became manifest that it could not arise from local temporary or iiubordinate causes but that it must have its genesis and development in some prin cipal ot universal application The Cause of the Trouljje What was it he asked that produced a general decline of prices in any

sti from mines and when these mines were worked out theii came revulsion and ad versity He wen on to speak of the na tural ratio between gold and silver exist ing for 2500 or 3000 ratio of to said that it was only since the legislative proscription of silver in Ger many and the United States and its ban ishment from the mints of Europe that tiny material change in the ratio took place and that Hie present divergence in this relative value of the two metals was directly due to the legal outlawry of silver and not to any natural cause Perfidious Sinn Who Lends It has always been tho object of the cred itors to enhance the value of money by re ducing its volume so that when the gold mines of California and Australia were producing the largest yield it was pro posed to demonetize gold The motive of demonetization in tlie case of gold as well as silver was to aggrandize the creditor class of the world and to confiscate so far as practicabletlie rewards ot the hardy toilers The demonetization of silver by Germany after her war with France ho said indicted greater evils on her people than her armies had indicted oil France and when that ovil began to have its ef fect a veritable hegira of the German pop ulation began to take place Our Own of Silver The demonctixation of silver by the United States in 1S73 lie regarded as one of those historical bunders that were worse than crimes It was the child oC ignorance and avarice anil it had proved the prolific parent of enforced idleness poverty arid misery No butter remedy could be ap plied than ihci absolute reversal that legislation and putting back the monetary system of the country to what it was before 1873 Tho value of both gold anil silver had risen with relation to all other com modities the rise being relatively slight in silver and ruinously great iu gold Bigger the Oiinntity Greater the Value Jones said that in order that prices might be kept from failing the number of dollars out should not be reduced in num ber for the purchasing power of each dol lar depended ou the whole number out And the larger number out the greater the value oE each To avc id too violent changes in tho purchasing power of money caused by too great abundance or scarcity of it society for 8CKX years ban used the two metals gold und silver so that their mutual oscillations of yield from the mines might serve to correct one another Should one of these be discarded and de prived of the power of legal tender all the moneywork of society would be thrown on the other whose value would there fore greatly increase Creditors Want Dear Money Joues dwelt with emphasis on the fact that the creditors did not care which metal was demonetized provided money was made scarce and dear Germany and Austria demonetized gold in 1857 but fail ing to secure the cooperation of England mlSTU giricea vrrtn nor vnjiur over France and expecting to further cripple that country reversed her policy and Joined England in discarding silver and adopted the gold standard Jones warmly defended the silver miners from the charge of selfishness in desiring the remonetization ot silver The silver min ers he said were as enduring as eager as vigorous adventurous as the argonauts of old They had never asked any favors of the government and they asked none now Their calling was an honorable ono and needed no defense NO COMFORT FOR THE PONCAS They Must Lose tlie Revenue Now Kc cetvetl from Cattle Barons WAsnisoios CITY May 13 Several members of the Ponca tribe of Indians in the Indian territory had a brief

their tierds from the territory on or before the 1st of October next The Indians based their plea upon the loss of ravelrae which they would suffer when their lands were no longer leased for grazing purposes The Cattle Men Must 60 The secretary however gave them no comfort On the contrary he vigorously the occupation of the lands by outsiders as without the sanction of the law and unjust to the farmers of the coun try wno were obliged to compete with un taxed cattle graced on untoxed lands He ordered the Indians to teturn at once to tijelr homesand told theiS that the policy of the
