Defiance Express (Newspaper) - July 30, 1895, Defiance, Ohio In in but Nemore Day. Great Chicago Silver debate nearly at an end. Eighth meeting of the talkers. Wide hangs of subject tackled by the two champions a prices of prod nets mod labor Banks indebtedness of Tho people failures and panics borne of Abe matters disputed Over a in Ltd Dollar presented to Lorr by Harvey. Copyright 189>, by Azel Hatch the two disputants in Tho Silver debate in beginning Tho eighth Days discussion showed an inclination to a got together a in. Proposition and reply and instead of Harvey discussing one thing while Horr teas discussing another their argument was confined More closely to Tho same 51 ase of the question. At the commencement of the session Horr had Tho door. He stated that a when you take All Tho a mail productions together with the great product known As human labor. Told has not appreciated in value since lt>73, and when measured in human toil it has depreciated that after Twenty years under a Gold Standard in this country the Farmer can Purchase with the i in ducts of his farm More of the which to needs to buy to Day Titian lie could in 1873. Moro than that a state that when the entire products of self he farm arc taken into account they will Baring As much Money of final redemption As they would have brought in is73.�?� he then introduced As part of his Case Rae table compiled for the finance committee of the United states Senate under direction of Carroll i. Wright National commissioner of labor. The table flows Tho Cost of several classes of protract Tho average wages of men who corked at All kinds of labor from 1830 up Zia 1800, and is computed on Tho plan of it parting in 18>j with too As the basis. This treble gives tile average of All prices As Sallows i too r65, 216.8 1870, 142.3 bs76, 227.6 1880, 106.0 1885, 93 1890, 92.3. Average of wages Iso i too is 1431 jbs70, lib 2 1875,158.4 1880, 141.5 1885, hk0.7 1890, 158 9. Purchasing Power of wages is. Too 1836, go 1870, 114 1 es75, 124.1 188 it 182.3 1885, 102 1890, 172.1. Proceeding to argue irom these figures Slorra said a you will notice that in 1865 Quot a prices were nominally High on Aci nuni of their being Given in Tho cheap a Oncy used Iii this country at that time. I 1s65 the Greenback in which we were measuring values was Worth Only 49 a vents on the Dollar. All prices had advanced when named in paper Money to in. Wages had advanced to 143 i per a 3eut.i but owing to the unusual Advance in the Price of products and of wages the purchasing Power of wages was Only 66. We resumed specie payments in 1879 by that time the High prices had fallen off that is Tho nominal prices because Tho Ane As Uro in which they had been valued lad been advancing ail the while on account of Tho paper Money which we were using a3 the measure constantly appreciating in value until it finally reached Par with Gold. A at that time prices As compared with if egg were As too 9 to 109, and wages were is 141.5 to to a showing that Tho wagers earners received much better pay than hey received in Ugo. But the Purchas Mig Power of wages was 132.3 instead of 1.00, labor was better paid and Mon end eyed the necessaries and comforts of life to us enormously greater degree notwithstanding Silver had at that time from too to 84 7. In 187j Tho average of All prices was j42 3 wages 162.2, cd the purchasing Power of greenbacks avas 114.1. In 1890 prices were 92.3, wages i 58.0, and their purchasing Power in Gold a it a 2.1, showing that the wage earner for a Bis Days work got one and nearly three a fourth times As much of the things he seeded in 189j Asho could have got in 0860. A Horr then referred to a table presented my Harvey compiled by Sauerbeck for a London society of statisticians this Able snowed the prices of forty five a a Rioles in London including Silver and i ule out an average decrease from 1873 &7 a a b 885 94 of about 12 per cent. Horr said to semm finance committee based the t Able he had quoted on 220 articles used in he United mates. He said to would a a Rint As part of his remarks a list of sixty hive of the articles used in the Senate com to it tech stable. Among them Are the foible Wing Beans bread butter Coffee dish lard pork beef Mutton sugar to amp toes Cotton Woolen and Cotton cloths , hides leather Coal Iron Copper hrad nails knives saws scythes shovels trick Silver lumber chairs tables soap land flour. Horr said it was better to select data the United states than England. A hat they were after was to find out i cd this Law de monetization affected Joe people Here Aud what would be Tho us act of free Silver Here. Harvey took up the debate by quoting run Horr that the average Price of in heat from 1875 to 1879 was 99.8 cents a it i it Shol and that Corn Oats and wheat u ought As much Gold in Tho five years tast As they brought in the five years previous to 1879. Harvey Road from i. Same table quoted by Horr is owing the prices for the years j <0-94 inclusive which averaged cents or Bushel for wheat. To then the Sauerbeck table a it shows the decline in prices of i those articles that seek Tho worlds near kits such As our wheat and our Cotton. Tho London Price of wheat affects Vina Price of our wheat on the Chicago in of the Senate committee table Harvey of of it id its compilers were a not free from a to make As Good a showing As they Wjk so duly could for prices in the United 85�,aes. When it is known that Edward was Ono of the men who As noted in making it Ono can judge of the Tsz that in tors into the Senate re Ouirt was made in 1891, when it was sup-3<j�ed prices Lead touched their lowest wait and yet it showed a decline in Telesis Benovy those of 1872 of 30 per cent., the France medical Institute cd.

Harvey added a we thus see by All of these tables that prices Are lower than in 1s50. These tables All prove Tho enormous purchasing Power of Money when exchanged Lor property and Tho Small amount of Money property will buy when exchanged for referring to Horros a unit of human toil a Harvey then quoted Horr replying in the new York Tribune to a correspondent who suggested that a Days work be called a unit of measure and that or. Fie called a Dollar. Horr was quo i replying that Tho idea was a Sib url that i can hardly treat it soberly. Harvey said Tho same reply would do for Horros idea. In conclusion Harvey said a til 1 Gold Standard men ars i oin i to to Tho Gold Dollar As being Worth i Ujj cents As measured in itself. In is a self evident proposition As measured in itself it is Worth 103 Horr said Kovey had not quote Tho Tribune reply fairly mily giving part thereof. To said he was replying to a Man who did not believe in either Gold or Silver As Money but in a a Flat Money Tho old Greenback idea. What lie Horr wrote about his correspondents theories being absurd was not in reference to his measure of value bump his whole scheme a Fiat Money. Here Herr charged Harvey with being anarchistic and socialistic Harvey indignantly repudiated the Shargo. Horr then took up the subject of Banks prefacing it it with Tho declaration that no country in Tho world had been As prosperous As the United states since 1873. Banks to said when Well organized were a Blessing to every Community in which they were located. By their Aid a Dollar did More than Twenty dollars used to do. By their Aid exec lures were made with the use of very Little Money. Less than five per cent of exchanges in civilized countries was made with Money. He had seen that fact established in the now York Clearing House. Harvey in replying referred to his estimate of the Normal Supply of Money �4,800,000,000 needed Iii Tho United states and now to show Tho difference Between a having Tho Money Iii existence and having Tho Banks Supply it a lie presented a table of failures Dun amp the number per year and amount of liabilities from 1857 to 1894 inclusive. Of Tho table to said a it shows that Dur ing Tho years of the War whoa there was plenty of Money making about �40 per capita the number of business failures was reduced to a minimum Rico How the contraction of the currency beginning in 1866 increased Tho failures. Follow it along Down Tho years to 1891, and Noto its ravages As Domo Setiz a Clou and Bank were substituted for real Money. Notice credit with their terrible tax on the people the failures prior to 1832, when Bank credit was supplying the people with mom y. Look at its terrible ravages in Tho last ten years 115, business concerns have gone into bankruptcy. I do not mean to say that All these allures Are to to attributed to tilts cause but i do mean to say that Tho credit system of Money with its tax of 2 to too too annually will account for every Dollar involved in those pausing Long enough to introduce As part of the discussion a table Oil pages 186 to 194, american statistical a sedation publication vol. Ii Date 1893-91, giving the total business population of the United states and the total number of business firms dropping out of business Harvey gave figures showing the number of railways july 2j, 1895, in Tho hands of receivers Tho increase of the number of tenant Farmers Between 1880 and Imp and said that in 1889 25 62 per cent and in 1894 34.13 per cent of Tho farms were cultivated by tenants also a census bulletin giving the number of tenant families in new York City and immediately surrounding municipalities at 81.54 per cent and this he charged to the financial legislation to was opposing. Horr returned to the Bank question and admitted that Tho Quantity of Gold in Tho world had not increased As fast As Tho business of the world but methods had been devised by which �100 in Gold would do now As much business As �2,000 used to do. This diminished the demand for the actual Metal. I illustrated this by comparing Tho work done by water Power with one Mill on a Stream and an under shot wheel and that done by Mills Allamong the Stream at successive Falls using tur Aine by Recto. Taxing Tao worm Over Mere is an average of one death and one and one Quarter births per second. Only one half of All who Are born into Tho world live to the age of 17 years.
