We don’t like the way they make their living. ♦ ♦ * A canvass of 198 street car hands in Duluth last Friday showed 192 for Bryan and free coinage, and a like pet-centage favored Bryan aud tree coinage among Hie dock hands. Tile wworkingmen of Duluth are solid for Town# for congress. * * * Said Rufus Choate: “We join onrj selves to no party that dives not carry Ute Mag and keep step to the music off Diet Ilion.” This is hard commentary on the party which this y**ar rears the British standard and keeps step to the music ut the foreign bondholders. * * * The “ratifications” of McKinley, Hobart and Page Morris through the sixth district during the past fortnight have been such tame affairs, that the gold press has not deemed it wise to report too many of them. Even congressman McCleary fails to bring out enthusiasm. NO. 33 DEAR HONEY, CHEAP PRICES. America Should Again Declare Its Independence of England—A Plain Remedy That Would Greatly Relieve the Situation. Editor of flit Manila rd: It is admitted on both sides of the present money controversy that tin* double standard with Iree coinage of gold and silver is desirable, but it is claimed on one side that we cannot maintain a double standard to our advantage without the aid of Europe. It is said that England buys our wheat and lixes the price, end that price must la* the price here. Yes, England buys our wheat and li ves the price—a cheap price, and she also fixes the money w ith which to pay for it a dear money. •Af# we dependent upon England? It England and all of Europe were blotted out of existence, could not the people of the United States live and prosper? Our resources are greater and more varied than those of any other people on the globe. We can produce and manufacture almost everything we require for our comfort and luxury. Let all of our sixty-tive millions of people be placed in a position to use and Nm I joy their full share of these grand resources which God has given us and our prices will not be governed by markets across the seas.

I’larke. the People’s parte nominee for Dtmgreaa in St. I’aul, is a brainy and popular young leader of eloquence and practical ability, who commands the respect and support of free coinage men in all parties. Clarke is going to surprise Merriam’s crowd this fall. ^Clarke, Owen, Towne, Lommen and Frank Day make a strong team to carry the band wagon of reform in the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and second congressional districts; and thousands of patriotic voters will get on the band w agon and guard the passes for a successful excursion in November. “The aggressive host of anarchism” IS the latest phrase which the twin city g*dd press applies to the free coinage and people's party movement, lf the corporate organ defines the absence of corporate rule as “anarchy” the phrase is well used. The term will soon become respectable if kept up in this way. ♦ * * I he “I >oc”-Aroes-Seetl-Maben aggregation, after extensive advertising of their market square “indignation mass meet tug” protesting against the union on Bryan, Lind and Owen, drew a total of fin people to hear the harangues of Ames and Seed.

Ten-cent oats, 7 cent butter, 45-cent wheat, lo cent corn, 8 cent wool, 7-cent eggs, 5-cent potatoes, 1-Ceiit cabbage*, and 4-cent dressed pork and muttdii speak for themselves.

The attempts of the Hanna machine, therefore, did not prevent this from being one of the most unanimous conventions in the country’s history.

What has Donnelly done, that “Bill” King should become his eulogist and defender? more goods must I#* bought,and to buv good* we must have money. * et us g.. to tJ»** fount ai r. b«ud: Remonetize silver and seventy-five thousand men now idle will be searching for the hidden treasure. Then these men will say to the farmers, merchants and manufacturers: We want your goods aud products and we have the money with which to buy them. Seventy-five thousand silver miners at two dollars per day w ill add one hundred and fifty thousand dollars daily to the wealth of the nation, and several times that amount w ill be added to Hie business volume of the country. To illustrate:    The laborer pays his board, the boarding-house keeper pays Hie merchant, the merchant pays the w holesale dealer, the wholesale dealer pays the farmer and manufacturer. Thus the one hundred and fifty thousands dollars, the wages of silver miners, perform their office five times daily, increasing the business volume of the country seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars daily. J,et us apply this remedy, it is sure to help and it may cure our financial ills. Albert Lea Aug. IO. F. E. Case. H QI J S. M. Owen is the choice of the Minneapolis populists, democrats, and silver republicans for congress. Bryan, Lind, Owen, and a clean city ticket will sweep Minneapolis this year. The great middle class, the church and school and home people, are joining the intelligent majority' of the laboring class in the common cause, and will revolutionize Minneapolis at the polls in November. The revolution is one of freedom of the city from the rule of professional politicians and their corporate backers and hoodlum following. F. Nj S. “Answer It Who Can." To Hit Editor of the Standard: Feasibly I am presumptuous, but I dislike to let such statements stand as those contained in your paper last week, coupled with such a challenge. 1.—Is our silver convertible into gold ? Let us see. What is due to the government is received in silver. What is due from the government is paid, When requested, in gold. This the government is obliged lo do in order to “preserve the parity.” Now, if a man desires to relieve' himself of a hundred dollars of ail vt r, he easily arranges w ith a debtor to the government; if he desires to repossess himself of the same amount in gold, he easily arranges with a creditor of the government. Ile converts his silver into gold. This is w hat makes a Knifed States silver dollar worth two Mexican dollars. 2.—The unit: The act of 1792 provided for a coinage of a silver dollar, containing a specified number of silver grains. It also provided for the coinage of gold ten dollars pieces, containing a specified nu tiber of gobi grains. J Which is the unit? Or perhaps to put it better, what is the unit value? Fertainly the number of silver grains in a silver dollar, and as certainly one-tenth of the number of gold grains in a gold ten dollars. The concrete dollar coin was silver. The concrete ten dollar coin was gold. Tile abstract dollar was either silver or gold. Alexander Hamilton, the then secretary of the treasury, upon whose recommendation the act was passed, said: “The secretary is strongly of the opinion that a preference ought tobe given to neither of the njetals for the money unit. Perhaps, if either were to be ing down the highways of history. A report of the altair has not vet been sent to Mark Hanna, but when snit in it is expected he w ill anno inc*- to a quivering world that McKinleys election is settled. For some reason the associated press I ai ie* I to send a report of it to the big daily papers, so the Standai:d must rely on Charley Norton w ho left his harvest and went on i purpose to attend it. He says: “The I procession was made up of a man w itll a flag, the Alden band —which mad** good music—ten or fifteen bovs and young chaps with torches—and that’s ! all. I’he speakers sat and looked on and acted as though something was the matter—they had a far-away look, and finally went to the hall where after the crowd had all gathered there were 24 and no more and .Ino.

He said he j didn t know much about the silver question; lie hadn’t studied it up very * much, but there was a question which { You can’t afford seemed to him to be the biggest in this campaign and that Wits—W ill W. C. Mitchell be elected next sheriff of Freeborn county? When that question w as settled to his satisfaction he would feel better himself and consider the country saved.” The oilier speakers declared that Mitchell hoodooed them, and Norton says “it may be so, but all the same it was the biggest part of the show.” QI1 d ii Here wt* are again and with just what y ou need in...... db CLOTHING, HATS And Furnishings. to pass us bv. money on anything in our line W by?

The ratio was not determined or procured by the “prop” of the law. Why did they not “restore the props” to the old ratio of 12 to I, or 9 to I ? “Answer it who can.” II. D. Brown. Great Bargain in Hardwood Timber. I have for sale 1500 acres best kinds of hardwood timber, near to railroad in central Minnesota at a great bargain.

In an interview with a representa-tiveof the Standard during hi.* visit here last week, Fred A. Johnson, Washington correspondent of the st! Paul Dispatch, said: “I have been spending a few weeks in Minnesota looking over the political situation and getting in touch with the new men coming lo the front, ami shall return to Washington in a week or so. I find that the silver sentiment pervades the north part of the state, and there are likely to be two or three silver congressmen elected. Ten days after Bryan’s nomination he would have swept the country, but now I think it is not so certain. The eastern bankers, Wall street, the big insurance rom-’ gallies, the railroads and the other great corporations and trusts are all against Bryan, and the work of the republican national committee will reach from New York down to every farmer and labonugmau in the United States, and it is certain to have its effect. I’m sorry Chaa. A. Towne was J so radical in his silver views. Uh might have been more moderate and the republicans would have renominated him. He is one of the ablest and most efficient men that Minnesota ever had in congress. Yes, lie bas made a sacrifice for principle, and ii will riot do to say that he is not honest in his convictions.” Homeseekers Excursion Over the Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad will berun on Aug.
