St. John was been yesterday at his room in the Ponce do Leon by a representative of the times. Be is quite a pleasant gentleman to meet and Bla views on the question of free coinage of Silver were very freely expressed. Sex governor St. John s views on the above question Are Well known at Are also his views on the question of prohibition he having been a candidate one time for tho presidency on the prohibition ticket. Tho reporter asked governor if the question of free of Olnage is generally understood his answer one of the great issues Over Bloh All the parties differ to Day somewhat la the Silver question and it is wonderful How much ignorance Shore is on that Quost Lon. In one of the Eastern slates a student went to a College professor and asked a what is tho most Long of the ratio of 10 to 1?�?T�?� and the professor said it meant the coinage of sixteen Sylvor dollars to one Gold Dollar. Think of a Collego professor telling a student Thistl a Man came to me tho other Day and said a i am in favor of bimetal ism if we would Only make it work. I am in favor of it but what puzzles me is where Ere to going to get tho Money to buy it Quot he thought that bimetal ism meant that the government should buy the Metal. When i explained to him what it meant he a Aid. A that s All what a Point by tho Quot Dollar of our daddies i Havo hero in my pocket a strange piece of Money. It it Continental Money such to the fathers of tho revolution used and i am Odo of those old fogies who la inclined to believe that the fathers of tho revolution were not natural Horn fools that they knew what they were about and i believe too who they Laid Tea foundations of our government and when after two years of discussion they hot upon a financial plan they knew what they Wero doing. They did not legislate in favor of England a Congress does to Day but they made a financial Ayatey for our own people. And Here was one of the foundation a Tonos holding up a piece of Continental Money he read a sixty dollars number 2421. This Bill entitles the bearer to re Volvo sixty Spanish milled dollars or tho value thereof. In Gold or Silver so of Ordung to to Resolution of Congress passed at Philadelphia so Tomber 2g. 1778. Sixty Spanish milled dollars there was no talk about a parity then. There was no talk about a fifty cent Dolar then. The Spanish milled Dollar or Quot to Silver Dollar of our daddies Quot As to fall it was made a foundation on which our financial system was erected hero in the United states and it was not until the shylock of this nation got hold of tho Throat of the government that that Dollar was stricken Down in 1872. What reason is Given for de monetizing a liver one of the most frequent reasons Given for de monetizing Sliver is Quot we did not Havo much of that 19 not True. To had Only coined eight million Silver dollars up to 1873, but we coined one Hundred and Twenty millions of Silver Money during that time. You rom omber under the Law foreign Silver Coin was made a Legal Vendor. The English shilling tho ninety Flo cent Diece. And the Spanish milled Dollar. We old hoosiers used 10 get together on the fourth of july and Trade horses and one neighbor would ask another Quot is your Borso found Quot and tho answer would come Back Quot As sound As a Spanish milled the Spanish milled Dollar and other foreign coins were de monetized and at last they a truck Down the Silver Dollar that we had oot Ned for Al Guty Odd years. In a dark hour in 1873, it was done secretly and i say right Here that that not was one of the most infamous schemes to plunder the common people in the in or. Albert a. Cannaday specialist.

What of the downward tendency of the Price of All kinds of pro duo two years ego i was travelling in Nebraska and a Young Man oame through the cart and said Quot dinner is ready in the dining wheat was thirty three Yenta a Bushel in Nebraska then. An old Farmer said a How much do you ask for dinner Quot Quot Ono the Man answered. Quot holy smoke Quot said the old Farmer Quot three Babela of wheat for a Quot yes Quot i said Quot and if you stay to supper la will be three bushels More and if you stay for breakfast it will take three Bushe More and if you sleep in the pull oar it will take six bushels to nine bushels for dinner break fave and supper and six bushels for your fifteen bushels to feed and de old Farmer Twenty four hours yet old party politicians Tell Yomera that if you will stick to system you will Wear diamonds awhile. It is lower than that now it is thirty cents in Western a a Nee. The average downward tendency of wheat and porn and pork and Ootton and Wool has been gradual from the de monetization of Silver to the present hour. \ Gold men say they do not want a fifty cent Dollar neither do i. To prohibitionists done to intend to have a fifty cent Dollar either. If we have a fifty cent Dollar to Day i ask you who gave it to Rev ii we have a Silver Dollar Worth but fifty cents today then somebody has been robbed of fifty cents every Dollar. And who robbed a it if 1 were bolting a detective at work to find that robber i would say. Keep your Eye on the demo Oralo Republican party. The Bullion in a Silver Dollar under tho legislation of Congress for the last Twenty five Yoars has been brought Down so that it be Only Worth fifty cants but the Flat of the government makes it pass for a Dollar. You can take the Sylvor Dollar and get As mob sugar and beef and pork with it As you can with the Gold Dollar. Now lot us change the thing. You de monetize Gold throughout tho world and Remon Olzo Sliver and the Gold in a Twenty Dollar Gold piece will not to Worth More than ton dollars. It is the Flat of the government that makes Money. What Are to going to do to Trade with England More than a Hundred years ago when we were yet a baby England attempted to tax us without giving us representation. We got mad and said to England Quot you Shan t slide on our cellar door you shall not a holler Down our rain barrel and John Bull you la be sorry after a Wyllo when you see us an Independent we threw the Tea overboard into Boston Harbor and had the biggest Tea party on record. And then he got mad and pm toned in to us and we licked him. 1 say the time Hae come when we should adopt a financial Statom for our own people and if England done to like it let her help herself. Away with All talk about Quot what we would do to Trado with England Quot ours la the most Lnae pendent government on Earth greatest and grandest in its natural resource a and we can live without trading with England or with any government that Don t want to Trade with us. How much greater is the purchasing Power of the Dollar now than in 1873?
