To the Editor af the Shonto rd: In my last your attention was called to the fact that the single gobi standard advocates mislead by building their arguments upon absolutely false premises. It is uncharitable to charge them with deliberate falsehood; It is equally repulsive to think they won bl assume the functions of teachers while ignorant of a subject so vitally important.

It is the policy of bimetallists to restore silver to its original status as ntahdard rather than token money, thus creating an unlimited demand, and thus bring the bullion value of the two metals to a parity with the coin age value at a g’ven ratio. While the legal supports were under silver, it maintained its parity with gold for over I HO years and did not commence to fall until after these props were knocked away. Restore those props, as they now’ stand under gold, and we will hear no more about a 54-cent dollar. II. G. Parker. Bulldozing by Big-Salaried Life Insurance /Magnates. MkmeapolI* Times: “President Greene of the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance company and president McCall of the New \ ork Mutual Life company have issued a pronunciamento, declaring that iii the event of a victory for free coinage of silver, the policy-holders will he paid in dollars worth only 50 cents, “ami the great hulk of them probably in dollars not worth more than from 25 to do cents.” Other leading life insurance companies are said to have similarly proclaimed their intention to scale down the claims of their policyholders, iii the event of the triumph of bimetallism. It looks very much like a raw blurt—a scheme to so work upon the fears of policy-holders as to get them to surrender their policies for 5o cents on the dollar, just as railroad presidents have lieen known to cry down the prospects of their roads, in order to frighten stockholders into selling at a loss, while the agents of the presidents bought them in. Tile presidents of the insurance companies who voluntarily place themselves in such Company should he invited by the policy-holders to step down and out. There is no argument in such stupid bulldozing as this. Nobody is going to he made l>elieve that the insurance companies are such u asci ti* h philanthropists that would strenuously oppose a policy that would enable them to pay their enormous indebtedness at the rate of 50 cents on the dollar.” The insurance magnates want their salaries paid in 200-cent gold dollars and are fearful of having to accept an honest dollar, the product of an honest currency system—and that’s what ails the magnates. .—----- Waterville Excursions.

Waseca Herald; It is a very easy matter for us to understand why the Wall street money monopolists favor a gold standard—the destruction and funding of silver, greenbacks and treasury notes. They favor these liecau.se that, when fully accomplished, they will have un entire “corner” on gold coin—the only legal tender—the only “money,” in farmland, in addition thereto, they will have an entire monopoly of all the paper currency (commonly called paper money) in this country. In addition to that they will hold fifteen hundred millions (SI,500,OOO,(JOO) of interest hearing bonds, payable in gold, both principal and interest. Such a policy is a complete surrender of all the people’* rights. The coinage and control of “money” is a very large part of the sovereignty of the people of this country. To surrender that sovereignty to the bank combinations of london and Wall street is to place the shackles of slavery upon our owrn wrists and those of our children. We repeat, we can understand wily the agents of the Jew gold-syndicate of Europe are anxious to destroy the value of our stiver and silver mines, aud to retire and fund into bonds all government treasury notes and greenbacks; hut we can’t understand why an intelligent business man or any other intelligent man, not a slave to, or in the employment of, the gold ring can favor such a stir lender of all our financial interests into the hands of a merciless combine of money sharks and schemers. — — Always the Right Place.
