Address of Leading Silver Republicans to Their Party in Minnesota--Forcible Presentation of the Cause of the Money of the Constitution--Let Not the Blight of the Gold Standard Be Fastened on the People. Following is the address of the silver republicans to their party iii this state: To the republicans of Minnesota— The greatest issue which has arisen iii this country since the addition of African slavery now confronts the American people. The common people have viewed with increasing alarm the efforts of a foreign money aristocracy to fasten upon this nation the single gold standard of value. In the past they turned with the inspiration of faith to the republican party for protection against that power which seeks to strike down one-half the redemption money of the world that the other half may purchase double the amount of the products of their toil. They had a right to expect such protection. The republican party was boro of the common people. Its mission has been to dignity labor; to secure to him who toils in field, in shop or mine the just fruits of honest labor. From the day of the party’s birth until the present time no article of republican faith has been more pronounced than the belief in bimetallism. It bas been written in its platforms and taught by all its great leaders. In national convention rn 1888 it condemned “the policy of the democratic administration in its efforts to demonetize silver.” In 1802 in its platform adopted at Minneapolis it declared in favor of both gold aud silver as standard money. In 18114 the republican party of Minnesota reaffirmed its belief Mm bimetallism and that the restoration of silver as ultimate money to the currency of the world is absolutely necessary for business prosperity, proper rate of wages and the welfare of the people.” Nearly every republican state convention in 18U4 condemned, either in express terms or by implication, the single gold standard. James G. Blaine well expressed the belief of the republican party when he declared, “I believe the struggle now-going on in this country and in other countries for a single gold standard would, if successful, produce widespread disaster in and throughout the commercial world. The destruction of silver as money and establishing gold as the sole unit of value must have a un nous effect on all forms of property except those investments which yield a tixed return in money. These would be enormously enhanced in value, ani would gain a disproportionate . u I unfair advantage over every other »§*< i*-s of property. If, as the most reliable statistics affirm, there are nearly seven billion dollars of coin or bullion in the world, not very unequally divided between gold and siver, it is impossible to strike silver out of existence as money without results which will prove distressing to million and utterly disastrous to tens of thousands. I believe gold and silver coin to Ire the tawney of the conli notion; indeed, the money of the American people, auti-nor to the constitution which the great J organic law recognized as quite lade-I dependent of its existence." J The action of the national repuhli-{ can convention at St. Louis has repu-I dialed this fundamental doctrine of I our party. The single gold standard I has been endorsed, in connection with the proposition that the free coinage of silver upon any basis or ratio is not to be permitted without the consent of foreign despotic aud aristocratic powers drat obtained. The republican party no longer stands for both gold and silver as primary money but for g«dd only. We cannot accept the new (aith, and we will hold steadfastly to the old. The policy of gold monometallism means prolonged and intensified depression; an endless and hopeless era of falling prices for our farmers and other producers; continued uncertainty of employment for our workingmen, wit!) lessening wages following the fall in prices of the products of labor; discouragement of all enterprise, and in universal bankruptcy and the gravitation of all money into the hands of money brokers. It means the obliteration of the great middle class, the yeomanry of the nation, and the division of the people into the very rich and the very poor. Those republicans w ho believe in theuseof both gold and silver as the money of ultimate payment, and their free coinage in our mints, must either submit in silence, or speak out boldly in condemnation of this policy so disastrous to the people. On matters of vital principle no man can reasonably be asked to submit to party dictation. Every man w ho places country above party, and whose sympathies are with the producers as against the money brokers and bondholders, owes a duty to his conscience and to his country w hich can only bedischayged by putting forth every effort in his power that the blight of the single gold standard may not be fastened upon this people.

Howard, James Ii. Bennett, ll. E. Hoard, J. II. TRIGGS, ll. D. Stocker. Minneapolis, July 2, 1896. THE PROTEST. Penny Press. There are patriots in the land iii this year of our Lord, 1896. The righteous protest of some of them is published alleve in the Penny Press. It is the declaration of independence of Minnesota patriots against the rule of the republican Wall street machine and its foreign platform of principles. It is the declaration of 1896 against European domination. This protest is signed by the brain, the respectability, the conviction and patriotism of the former republican leadership. It is signed by such men as these: Chas. A. Towne, the noted congressman and free coinage and reform champion, of Duluth. John Lind, three times congressman on a free coinage platform and a broad-brained champion of the people’s caus*-. County attorney Frank M. N>e, the eloquent and widely popular state’s advocate, of Hennepin county. Senator D. F. Morgan, 8. B. Howard, Gustav Thieden, the well known state senators of Hennepin. Hon. R. S. M linger, arid D. G. Cash, Clinton Markell, 8. ll. Moer, J. H. Triggs, prominent Duluth business men. General Sanliorn, the eminent state senator aud public-spirited representative of St. Paul. Such representatives of the country districts as editor H. E. Hoard and Chaa. E. Rogers, of Montevideo; James R. Bennett, of St. Cloud; and Lieut. Gov. Frank A. Day, of Fairmont. John D. Smith, E. s. Coner, J. W. Griffin, H. D. Stocker,and other prominent and representative business men and patriotic citizens of Minneapolis. This list will lie extended to thousands and tens of thousands before November. This Declaration of Independence issued on the morning following the state republican convention and the organization of the state gold machine is one of the most significant i documents, and marks one of the most important arid popular political revolutions in the history of our common- i wealth. Its motto w ill be, *^n union! there is strength.” It marks the dow’n- j fall of the old political regime in Min-! nesota. «»i    — S. M. V. and D. Association.

Vt I thin a little more than two years I the bonded indebtedness of the govern- j men! has been increased 8262,000.000. By the time this debt matures the people will have paid $238,000,00m interest on it, when it will prabahly be refunded into other long-time bonds, entailing burdens of debt upon “generations yet unliorn.” lf the principle is paid at maturity the people will Lave paid, in ten to thirty years, SoOO.OUO.OuO to satisfy the debt that has been uselessly loaded upon them iii two years ot peace, health and big crop*. This debt was created to redeem certain obligations in gold that the law says is redeemable in “coin,” and coin bas always meant silver and gold, with the option with the government to pay whichever metal it chose. Therefore contracting the debt was not only unnecessary but w as due to a plain disobedience of law. What a scheme for enriching the rich and impoverishing wealth producers. — - —**♦ «• - — They Stand United. Arlington Enterprise. It isn’t often that brothers agree well together, especially in politics, but the three Day brothers seem to delight in so doing. All of them are editors, Ii. G. Day. of the Freeborn County Standard; Frank A. Day, of the Fairmont Sentinel, aud Burt W. Day, of the Hutchinson Leader. They were all sound republicans in Hie good old times before Grover C, and his gold, bot the leaven has been working, and they all have gone over to the populist camp shouting for free silver. They are all bright men, honest as the day is long, and their loss will be seriously felt by Minnesota republicans. — - - -    »-—   - Wondrous Foreign Flyers. Among the many foreign arenic stars who make their first appearance in the four rings, upon the olympian stages, arid in the aerial carnival of the great Adam Forepaiigh and Sells Brothers* Consolidated shows, the celebrated Arrigosi sisters probably create the biggest furore. They are the only Hying trapeze performers appearing in full dress aud long skirts, and their high and hazardous dives, leaps, somersaults, catches, and evolutions thus costumed are startling, graceful and enthusing triumphs. — —------- ninneapolis & St. Louis Excursions.
