Coi.rMr.iA, S. C, May 27. All eyes
are now turned towards Richmond, tho
capital of the confederacy, and it seems
a littlo strange thiit that city of all

this week South Carolina through her
attorneys will appear there and before
a eouit of appeals of tho United States
make her appeal for states' rights.
The result of tho move that has been
decided upon by the .states leaves the
political outlook a little in doubt just
now. There is a possibility that the
court may reverse J udie Golf's decision
in which ease tho entire situation will
le very much changed. It is not gen
erally thought, however, that the court
will make any such reversal, and in
that eaoo the uncertainty will simply
amount to a delay in the campaigning.
The state is very hopeful of winning

Raleigh, N. C, May 27. One of the

mittee had been completed tfia tail
form of Secretary Cnrlisle, emerged
from tho stage. In an instant a migh
ty shout went up Tlie ovation con
tinued for several moments after which
Mr. Carlisle began his speech.
Among other tilings, Secretary Car
lisle said :

among t'ien.iolves mut with the people of other
countries. Is one which eha!'enjes the iatolli
aeuce. patriotism sm.l commercial honor of
every Hi'iii to whom It is addressed.
No mr.tter what mny be the real purpose and
motive of those who make the proposition to
leualtue the free coini-e of silver at the ratio
10 to 1, thi'so are the consequences Involved In
their sola mo, and la ;ny opinion cannot bo
avoided If it should bo adopted. In no part of
the country will the conseijuenccs of such a
policy prove more Injurious to th.') materlul In
terests of, the people than iu the undeveloped
and progressive south.
I do not charjro that our fellow-cltUens who
propose to revolutionize our monetary system
really desire to see the business of tho country
ruined, or oven injured, but in my judgment,
the re.-nlts would bo most disastrous, and
therefore, I appeal to tnem to carefully review
the (.'rounds before it is too lute to correct a
possible mistake upon a subject of such su
preme Importance to themselves and to their
The secretary reviewed at some,
length the history of the use of gold
and silver as moneys, and went on to
The "lercentaite of coin actively employed in
conductlua business In this country is so small
that It Is almost inappreciable; so small in
fact, tii:t its disuse in our transactions would
be felt '' vo had a substitute for It, or papor
representatives of the subsidiary pieces. Al
though we have the pold standard lu tnts coun
try , our actuu 1 stock of fold bullion and coin
amoun; t(fnly about one-third of our actual
currency, a condition of affairs which would
have bf 011 inconceivable a few centuries ago.
Our (roi l, full lopnl tender silver, old United
States notes, treasury notes and subsidiary
silver coin aKuropate ?l.S4,Ton.7i'3. exclusive of
the minor coin, and every dollar of this vast
amount is kept equal In value to the staudard
established by law. This Is the financial con
dition whlvh the advocates of free cotuaKe at
16 to 1 now propose to revolutionise by a
chanae la the standard of value, so that the
whole mass of circulation for the use of tho
people would be reduced to about one-half the
purcbaslrjr power it ha now.
H has been contended by many advocates of
free colmino that the eileot of their policy
would be not to abolish the present standard
of value and substitute the slturle poM stand
ard In its place, but tbat it would establish
what they call bl-rnetalU.sm und a double stan
dard. I confess my Inability to understand
what is meant by double standard because I
cannot conceive how it is possible to have two
different lewal measures of the same thlnp at
the same time as for Instance, a pound weifjh
Inff sixteen ounces and another el(iht ounces. .
After quoting various authorities on
the subject of bi-jietallism. Secretary
It is proposed that the United States with
out tho co-operp.tlon of any other (rovornment,
shall provide by law that all sliver bullion or
foreign sliver coins that may bo presented at
the mint by individuals or corporations, for
elpn or domestic, shall be coinod at the public
expense. Into silver dollars at the. ration r,f 1(1
to 1 with cold, and that the coins so made shall

nobody else shall bo compelled by law to re
ceive them as dollars of full -alue
All who are Indebted to us before, huvo the
privilege of paylnft in silver, whlk1 nil to whom
we become indebted ore to huve the privilege
of requiring us to pay in (fold.
The attempt to coin the two metals without
limit as to the amount Into k;&ml money and
keep both in circulation at the same time has
tieen made by nearly every civilized nation and
has failed. Our country la not without experi
ence upon this subject und the resul's here
were just the some as every one else expe
rienced. All who have been or mar be induced to yivo
their support to thti revolutionary policy up
on the assurance that it will jrlve the country
more money for use lu tho transaction ot bu
lnci will bo pieatly disappointed, for they
will find, when it Is too lute, that instead of
havlnii more money they will have less wm
and that It will bf; depreciated In value be
sides. The introduction Into the currency of tin;
country of any kind of money about which
there is the least doubt, will alwuys operate
to drive out the same amount, or about tlie
sinno, of better money and thus leave tho peo
ple with about tlie same volume of currency
they had ot the beulnniua.
Frcecolnafro would absolutely give us a de
preclatlna and fluctuating currency and the
question is whether tho producers of exporta
ble articles will be benefitted by such n r'-sult.
The character of value of the. currency in use
In the produclnu country does not affect tho
price of the money abroad to any extent what
ever. 13ut. If our monetary system were so
chanircd that It would require two dollars to
purchase hero what one dollar would purchase
now, the exchange witn lorei-rn countries
would be double, making us pay twice os much
In our money as now. while the foreigner
would pay only half as much in money in the
same number of dollars as he pays now.
The assertion thut the fall in prices since 1S73
Is due to the appreciation of pold alone is
bssed upon the assumption that the relations
between supply and demand have not chanped
so that there has been no diminution of tho
cost of tho production and distribution; that
the facilities for uffectinp financial exchanges
have not been Improved; in short that tho
world has made no prepress in the conduct of
Its industrial and commercial operations for
more than twenty years.
This assumption is so inconsistent with tho
well known economic and historic facts that it
seems scarcely worth while to give it consider
ation. The orcrument that the reduction of prices In
due to the appreciation of Roll and that tho
legislation In regard to silver has produced a
scarcity of redemption of metallic money la
tho world, are both assumptions not justilicd,
by the facts. Exhaustive inquiries to ascer
tain tho actual amount of (told and silver used
as money In tho world, shows that there is
now more gold and silver In the a?irrcirato and
more of each one of them in use us fuli Ic-al
tender money than ever at any other time in
the history of the world. The geld in use
amounts to W.OfiS.wo. onn. the full lrgul tender
silver to 3,K.KO.ono and the limited legal ten
der silver to fc'is .vi ,. .
xue poncy of maintaining or rather attempt
ing to maintain the so-called double standard
never succeeded in keeping so largo an omount
Of full legal tender silver In circulation In the
world as there is nt this time.
So far as the ruore volume of our currency Is
concerned, wo have ample supply for aU neces
sary purposes, but under the existing synteui
it is not properly distributed and Is not suffl
clently elastic to meet all the changing re-
sa ui a.nerent periods 01
the year. I
The United States should get entirely out of
tho banking bus-.ness by tho withdrawal of lu
arbitrary and compulsory issue of notes, aod
aflord the people an opportunity to apply their
own currency, based upon their means and
credit, thus requiring every community to use
ltd resources when necessary and adjust tho
circulation from time to time to the actual de
mands of lCfc'ltiiriaU! commerce. Iu what way
this shall be accomplished is a question which
has already seriously ongaged the uttentlon of
the people and authorities, and which will, do
doubt, coutiaue to bo discussed until a plan la
devised which. If nut jx ifeet, will ut least have
the merit of being a great Improvement upon
the existing system. In tlie moantimo our
highest duty Is to preserve the present stand
ard of vuluo. ond keep all the money in circu
lation equal in Its purchasing power.
When the speaker concluded he was
given a final ovation and a recess until
8 o'clock was at onee taken.
When tho convention reassembled at
8:50 p. m. the following resolutions
were presented :
The people of the southern strvtes who be
lieve the mnli.tet'.ance of a sound and stab's
currency to be e.sei.lial to the prosperity ef
wjoie eouii'.ry and tho welfare of the p.o-ph-Infill
divisions of life, do, through their
representatives In convention assembled ut
Memphis n May Ckl. lsi, rmike the followln
declaration of their in- turcd convictions-
1. Believing a unlf-jim and certain standard
of value accessary to the agricultural, com
meicl il and industrial d( vcl.-pmci.t und proa
lrlty "f (i.ir enmiun cuuntzy, .ie favor the
maintenance uf ail our money whether gold,
sliver or paper. u:i a parity U the end th'it
each dollar, whatever may N. Its compui llu.n,
shall havo equal irurchas!ti? and debt paying
powers with every other dvliur.
2. Profiting by the experience of Washing
ton, Jefferson and namtlton. a! d tho teachings
of the fc're it students of monetary science.
irom me time when John Locke wrote, to tho
discussion of the present i'ay, we accept tho
truth of the principle now unlversnlly recog
nized uud applied In the commei-'-lul world,
that the bimetallic Htandurd eunmt be main
tained where the ratio fixed bv law for the freo
colnaite of gold and silver docs not correspond
wuu tne maruet ratio t.f the two metals; and
wherever and whenever the k'cal or cotnago
ratio varies from the market or commercial
ratio to any appreciable extent, the dollar,
whether of gold or silver, which thereby be
comes moro valuable us bullion than os money,
win go to a premium mid retire from circula
tion. We saw this principle applied in our
own national experience when under tho act of
ls. which fixed the coinage ratio at 15 to 1,
gold retired from circulation because of a
slight decline in the price of silver in the open
market, whereby the bullion in tho gold dollar
became worth a few cents more than the bul
lion in a Hilver dollar and was therefore sold as
a commodity because it was worth moro as
bullion thun as money, and again under tho act
of 1834, which fixed the ratio ut 16 to 1.
when tho silver coin retired for a like
reason, We are, therefore, opposed to the
free, unlimited and independent coinage of
silver at tho ratio of 10 to 1 when the market
or commercial ratio Is more than 30 to t. and
the difference between the bullion valuo of a
gold ond a silver dollar lu about fifty cents, on
tho ground thot such action. Instead of restor
ing the bimetallic standard would inevitably
result In silver monometallism.
3. At this time thero Is no country in the
world which maintains the bimetallic stand
ard and neither is there any country where
the free caiuago of silver obtains which la not
on s silver basis. Each country, on account ot
its inability to adopt independently any bime
tallic standard, must olect for ltsselt which It
prefers, the gold or the alivor standard. We,
therefore, favor, in the absence of Internation
al co-operation, the retention and maintenance
of the existing gold standard; bocauso a
change from the gold to tho silver standard
would have the effect to repudiate all public
and private obligations to the extent ot tho
difference between the bullion valuo of the
gold and silver dollars; because whenever
such change should be seriously threatened It
would oause an Immediate attempt at n col
lection and liquidation of all debts In anticipa
tion of tho result it would produce; because
such transition from the gold to the allver ba
sis woald destroy public and private confi
dence and would Involve tho country lu such
panic, confusion and distress tho the products
of agriculture and the wages of labor would
bo unrcmuncratlve; tte) business of commerce
would become unproiltabk) and our people en
gaged in industrial occupations would bo
thrown out of employmcn; because thore Is not
a progressive and enlightened country in the
world which has not selected gold as tho pro
feruble standard; because gold standard coun
tries retain silver in their circulation on a
parity with pold whereas there Is no silver
standard country which does or can utilize
gold as money; because there Is no a silver
country on the globe whero the wages of labor
are sufllclent to sustain tho working classes
comfort and Independence, and finally tocausO
the high destiny of tho United StnU'S demand
for the use of the Americun people thot money
which experience hiw; taught mankind to bo
the best suited for the promotion of commerce,
the development of monufactnre, tho encour
oitementof labor and the advancement or civ
ilization. 4. Wo would rejoice over tho adoption of real
bimetallism but In view of tho continued fluc
tuations of the price of silver in tho open mar
ket we realize tliat it Is impossible for tho
United States independently to adopt a bi
metallic standard ; and when wc deem it un
wise and hazardous to the best interest! of Its
people for this country to attempt Its estab
lishment. Wo fuvor tho policy of this country
standing In the attitude of roudiu ss at ull
times to co-operate ith the other powers In
any effort they may Inaugurate looking to the
adoption of true bimetallism; but in the mean
time and until successful co-operation Is In
sured, to maintain inviolate its existing stand
ard of value.
5. Wo favor tho retention as part of our
money the silver now coined, and In order to
glvo a wider field for tho use of silver we favor
tho funding of all money other than silver ond
6llver eertttlctito below the nomination of ten
dollurs into higher denominations so as to
muke our entire circulation below the denomi
nation of ten dollars, either silver or silver cer-
tlllcates ; and to this end, the secretory of tbo
treasury should bo authorized by law to coin
from time to time as the people may require
them, silver dollars until the demand of com
merce for money lielow tho denomination of
ten dollars Is at nil times satisfied.
ft. Wo realized that our national banking sys
tem was adopted during a time of war and that
it is not adapted to existing conditions, wo,
therefore, favor such legislation as will secure
to tho people a system of Ixinklng surrounded
by such safeguards us will at all times furnish
them a safe, elastic, sulllcient currency for the
transaction of their business.
7. We cannot too highly commend the un
flagging courage and sturdy patriotism of
President Cleveland in his efforts to protect
the national honor and to maintain tho publio
credit during a period of great financial dis
tress oud under eondit ons which threatened
danger to both ; wo congratulate him and tho
entire country on the evidences of returning

followed only In part by corresponding chock

No onn of tho laraor grain states confirmed
the reports of severe damage to wheat and

and thero Is less reason to believe In tho es-
