audience from the surrounding country After speaking of the regularity with which panics occurred and the similar regularity with which they were fol lowed by a proposition to mend mat ters by using bad money the fact that they had always been remedied with out the use of unsound currency of the absurdity of the claim that the price of silver and the price of wheat and cot ton kept step Secretary Smith said The value of silver bullion has fallen since 1873 on account of the lessened cost of production on account of the enormous increase in productionand on account of the decreased demand Al of these elements entered into anc helped cause the reduction of the value of silver ti To restore the price of silver to its value in 1873 you must remove all the causes which have reduced its value Concede for the sake of argu ment that the action of the United States was one of those causes it is il logical to claim that the removal of tins one is the removal in effect of all others No Need Even to Try It f But it is urged that the TJnited States should try the experiment and if it failed then abandon it or change the ratio Thex facts stated show con clusively in advance that it must fail To lift the value of grains of silver in the United States from 50 to 100 cents it would be necessary to lift the valuesof all the silver in the world to the same extent less the co3t of transporting it to the United States In addition to this if the silver mines can afford to continue increasing their production as they have from in 1873 to on a market which has fallen 50 per cent what would they produce on a market which had risen 100 per cent The volume to bs raised in value ex tends to the earths deposits as well as to that heretofore rained The Effect of an Election The immediate effect of the election of a president committed to such policy would be the separation of the gold and silver dollar the gold dollar going to a premium of about to We would lose at once about 000 in gold now in circulation and in the treasury greenbacks amounting to still outstanding would ba hoarded with the hope that the silver bill if passed at all would still be re pealed This would take place imme diately after the election of a president in November 1896 and probably even after the nomination by either of the great parties of a free silver candidate The new president not be in augurated until March 4 1897 Dur ing the six months or morebefore it would be possible to pais free silver legislation the contraction of che cur rency just described would precipitate most serious consequences Those own ing gold obligations would put a strain upon the remaining silver currency and j the bank to bur gold to meet i their gold obligations Currency Be Useless The currency consisting of checks and bills of exchange amounting to 95 per cent of our entire currency would go out of use in consequence of loss of confidence and credit and the result would be the withdrawal of per cent of our entire currency and the paralysis of business would immediately follow Banks would be raided by their depositors Indebetedness not payable in gold would be collected at ojice or the property owned by debtors taken from them Merchants would fail manufactories close workmen be idle farm products without a market and poverty and distress willbe found on all sides Picture Xot Overdrawn Concluding he said The picture is not overdrawn When I contem plate it there is but one source of com fort it is an abiding confidence that with twelve months of full free dis cussion the American people can be relied upon to overwhelmingly defeat any party which proposes to bring such disasters upon us It is a source of gratification to Democrats to know the troubles of 1893 were brought upon the country by the unwise legislation of the previous admin istration Your representatives at Washington were confronted with many difficulties No civil cri sis has been more serious Let the return of prosperity let the daily news that factories are again work and that one million wage earners have had their wages increased let the rise in value of farm products tell how they have succeeded The McKinley bill has been repealed the credit o the government has been preserved money has been kept sound and wo will go to the country in 1896 with the Democraric party fighting further

The sixth days talk was opened by Mr Harvey He said that the debate of the last session was of value as sho wing that during the past 40 years silver had been steadily coined in spite of the assertion to the contrary that by the table eopied from the reports of the mints fche commercial ratio between gold and ilver had been maintained at about the French coinage ratio of to 1 for 200 years that during the two years since 1878 as the result of de Enonitization the commercial ratio had declined to 32 to 1 that in the years prior to 1873 the quan tity or ratio between gold and sil ver had ranged from 56 of silver to 1 of gold to 4 of silver to 1 ftf gold and that during all that time the commer cial ratio had clung closely to the legal ratio During all that time the com mercial price of silver bullion had re mained steady Since 1878 it had steadily and rapidly decreased It was thedominating influence of London in exchange to all parts of the world which led to gold being recognized by the world as the standard in all com mercial transactions Mr Horr in his opening remarks proceeded to call attention to what he called misleading statements in Mr Harveys book For instance he de clared to be untrue the statement that it was believed that the cost of producing all of the gold n the Wfrld was about pier ounce while some put it much higher Mr Horr pointed out that there had been a vastly increased pro duction at greatly reduced prices At the cost which Mr Harvey spoke of the silver miners in three years would have lost over OOOOOO Again Mr Harvey had put the ag gregate amount of silver in the world at about It was esti mated that there was about 000 Late Reports Show Previous Estimates to Have Been Much Too High SMUT DOING SOME DAMAGE WE HAVE THE BEST YOU CAN BUY ANYWHERE FOR THE MONEY Minnesota and the Dakotas Will Produce 1OOOOO OOO Bushels DITLUTH July every grain receiver at Daluth has received from his Dakota reporters in most cases men who have been sent from here to investigate reports of great damage to wheat by smut The re ports in addition were to the effect that the crop had been overestimated in the first place and that it had de teriorated during July and especially since the cold weather set in so that it is now not believed that the crop of the Northwestern states will exceed 100000000 bushels whereas 130000000 bushels has been the lowest estimate here tof ore EARLY AND EXCELLENT Northwest Of buying a Warm Air Furnace we shall be pleased to make an esti mate and refer you to some of the most economical and best working

probability of the length of the the next session of congress Public opinion is largely in favor of a short session and is based on the belief that both parties will want to get away for the campaign at as early a date as possible Is is said Mr Reed feeling practically certain that he will be elected to the speaker ship has already virtually com pleted the house committees at any rate he will be able to announce the appointments very soon after the convening of the two houses on the 2d of December Should the house committees be announced soon after the beginning of the session and that body gets its work well under way be fore the Christmas holidays it would be a decided innovation Few con gresses in recent years have begun the session without this plan as a part of their programme and few have suc ceeded in putting it into execution QUESTION OF SUFFRAGE It Is One of Considerable Importance i TJtah Now WASHINGTON July 24 Delegate elect Frank Cannon of Utah outlines what will probably prove a very inter esting question in connection with the election which is to take place in that territory next November when the constitution adopted by the recent con stitutional convention will be present ed to the people for their ratification or rejection and when also state and county officers will be voted for The constitution provides for female suffrage and the Democratic leaders have taken the position that under this provision the women should be allowed to vote at the election in November especially in view of the fact that of ficials are to be elected The Republi cans on the other hand contend that Utah is still a territory and that this election must be held in accordance with the forms provided by congress which do not permit of the exercise of the elective franchise by women A general effort on the part of the ladies to vote might in view of the conflicting claims produce important complica tions in the future SHOT AN ATTORNEY Continuous
