Washington aug. 17.�?without a dissenting voice the delegates to the Silver conference on thursday adopted free coinage resolutions appointed a provisional committee to perfect a National organization made speech anything but complimentary of the administration and adjourned sine die. The add Roas. The main portion of the address follows after explaining Tbs Call for the conference end declaring that it waa a purely a voluntary assemblage and therefore do not speak with party authority it proceed a As follows a profoundly conscious t Tot the democratic party to Day confront j cry Ala the most momentous in its Nia tory and it aught with far reaching peril to the people and the country we Are assembled a individual democrats to take counsel together and for the undisguised purpose of inaugurating and promoting a thorough and systematic organisation of the democratic masses so that they May go Forward As one Man with a Resolute purpose to Rescue the old party founded by Thomy Jefferson from plutocratic domination. A a therefore with this object in View this convention of american democrats composed of representatives from Twenty two of the leading states of the Union make the following declaration on the monetary question which has been forced into the leading place among the issues of to Day. The Federal Constitution names Silver and Gold together As the Money Metal of the United states the first coinage Law passed by Congress under the Constitution made the Silver Dollar the unit of value and admitted Gold to free coinage at a ratio measured by the Silver Dollar unit a prom the beginning of the government following a policy formulated by Thomas Jefferson and firmly established by Jackson the democratic party has been the party of bimetal ism favouring the free coinage of both Silver and Gold at the National mints and opposed to farming out to banking corporations the government s Sovereign Power of issuing sad controlling the Money of the people act of 1s73. A the act of 1873 de monetizing Silver waa surreptitiously passed without the approval or knowledge of the american people and from the time when the effect of this act in fastening upon this country the single Gold Standard was understood the democratic party has consistently and persistently urged that the grievous wrong be righted. A failure to accomplish this object has resulted in the steady appreciation of Gold and a corresponding fall in the Price of commodities produced by the people a heavy increased the Burden of All debts Public and private a the enrichment of the Money lending Clos paralysis of Industry and the impoverishment of the people and unexampled distress in Mil Gold Standard countries. Experience has shown that while under the single Gold Standard there May be an occasional revival of business activity accompanied by enhanced prices of a limited number of commodities such revival is due to artificial and temporary causes and cannot permanently alleviate the sufferings due to the falling of prices brought about by the appreciation of Gold and the inadequate Supply of primary or redemption Money. V a a the rights of the America n people the interests of american labor and the Prosperity of american Industry have a higher claim to the consideration of the people s lawmakers than the greed of foreign creditors or the avaricious demands made by a Idle holders of Idle capital an inalienable right. A Vtha right to regulate its own monetary system in the interest of its own people is s right which no free government can barter. Mil or surrender. This reserved right is s part of every Bond of every contract and of every obligation. No creditor or claimant can set up a right that can take precedence Over s nation s obligations to promote the welf Ampf the masses of its people. This is a debt Fibber and More binding than All other debts ask Oke that it is not Only dishonest Bat treasonable to ignore. A a the land and its products Are the basis of All developments and Prosperity. The productive capacity of air country must be the basis of its credit in opposing the policy of contraction which must inevitably depreciate the values of land and its products we Are the supporters of property right and sound Ere fit and stand Between the Homes and estates of the people and the red Flag of the auctioneer. A the policy of Gold Mono Metallis by been characterised by repeated and disastrous financial panics. The Farmers Hare found their Prosperity and Independence constantly waning under its blighting a manufacturers Are interested to oppose it for they find the Price of Sale falling below the Cost of production. Merchants should oppose it for with the tailing prices they Are often compelled to sell for less than they paid for manufactured goods. Neither manufacturer nor merchant can Prosper unless the mass of Consumers realize such prices for their products and labor and Supply themselves liberally with the necessities and luxuries of life nor can the wage earner Prosper for under depressed conditions there is Lew and less Competition for hts labor. Traditional Friend of bimetal ism. A the democratic party is the traditional Friend and Champion of bimetal ism. Its strength and Power and popularity has been largely built upon its steadfast opposition to the de monetization of Silver and to record of unwearied Effort to restore it to its historic place As a Money Metal equal with Gold. The Effort at this late a to make it excellence the Champion of Gold Mono Metallis the enemy of the pop Ley thu upheld and the defender of the crime it has denounced is a Effort to Dishonour its record its promises and its principles. The moment the democratic party is forced into this position it heaps obloquy on its own past and Crown its great adversary with glory and Honor. 4 a duty to the people requires that the party of the people continue the Battle for bimetal ism until the efforts Are crowned with Success therefore be it a resolved. That the democratic party in Nat of convention assembled should demand the free and unlimited coinage of Silver and Gold into primary or redemption Money at the ratio of 16 to 1 without waiting for the action or ppr Oval of any other nation. A resolved that it should declare its irrevocable opposition to the substitution fora metallic Money of a panic Breeding corporation credit currency based on a single Metal the Supply of which is so limited that it can be cornered at any time by a few banking institutions in Europe and America a resolved. That it should declare its opposition to the Polley and prs Etlee of surrendering to the holders of the obligations of the United Sites the option re waved by the Law to the government of a deeming such obligations in either Silver Ooin or Gold Coin a resolved. That it should declare it opposition to the issuing of interest bearing Bonds in the United Sites in time of peace. And especially to placing the Treasury of the government under the control of any Syndicate of Bankers and the issuance of Bonds to be sold by them at an enormous profit for the purpose of supplying the Federal Treasury with Gold to main Tain the policy of Gold Mono Metallis a with s View to securing the adherence to a re adoption of the democratic financial policy above set Forth by the democratic National convention to be assembled in 180 and of the nomination of a candidate for the presidency.
