The Sub-Ti chsnry rIsciissccl.
The Chronicle sars; "The sub
treasury' hits been iirionsly discussed
but it wiU take both silence nd discus
sion to kill it." I dtfhy that it has been
'various! jM discftssed.hy partisan jour
nalists atid politiclajis. All reference
made to that measure has been char
acterized by two peculiarities. First
assailing the machinery rather than
the spirit of the bill. Second, a desire
"with malice a forethought,'' as the
lawyers say, to misrepresent it, and
prejudice mindsj: against it. The so
called discussions When boiled down,
resolved themselves into mere assertion,
such as crude, lidicalous, impractical;
unconstitutional, Ndw, we thiuk a
mere assertion a pocij-.sort wf theory en
dorsed by the representatives of three
million farmers, besides other labor
unions. 1 have seen the purest virture
and noblest manhood clad ia humblest
garb, and I have seen the foolish sneer
and muck, whilst wise men recognizing
the nobility within have paid reverence
and honor. Within the "crude" and
"absurd" habiiiments of the sub-treasury
lies a soul, a principle, an idea.
That idea is, an ample currency issued
direct to the people at a low rate of in
terest. Now, Mr. Editor, when you reflect
that our government by transmitting
its currency though a class of wealthy
middle men to levy a tribute upon the
industries of the country of over two
million dollars, and when yoa reflect
i that the farmers of this country have
j fallen behind in the race for 'wealth,
! about twenty-five billion dollars, it is
strange that the great heart of the
debt-burdened, toil-worn fanning juil
' lions hwuldTrespond with a bounuV to
. a measure formulated to give them
protection against injurious tribute,
and ii fair chance in the race for wealth
and all the concomitant comforts and
refinements? Isiyitis not strange,
' nor is it sjtr inge they should revolt at
! the treatment the measure has recieved
! at the hands of their niisrepresenta
tives in Congress. Nor is it strange
' that they say to those self-eonstituted
judges of our wants, ;nd necessities,
"if our measure is crude or uncousli
tional, we are paving 335 representa
tives and 82 senator-, many of whom
le u ned in the law to correct its crude
ness. The Chronicle says it will take both
discussion and silence to kill it. The
editor must have; taken his crude ideas
from our m embers of Congress. Those
who did not in-et the bill with sneers
used the we.ip hi of "silence," and I be
lieve the producers resent tke treatment
as much as t lit other. As for myself

SuL-Trcasury Bill Gives Money at
the lliglit Time.
These unfavorable conditions, con
tinued through a long service of years,
haTe reduced the producer to a neces
sity of marketing his products at the
earliest possible moment to meet ma
tured obligations and provide for the j 2
necessities of the family. As a result
of this the entire product of the sea
son is thrown upon the market practi
cally at one time and passes into the
hands of speculators, who invariably
reap the profits that legitimately be
long ta the producer. The system of
gambling that has. fostered and devel
oped under these conditions is destruc
tive to the interests of the producer
una consumer aii;e.
The sub -treasury bill provides an ef
fectual remedy Jor these evils in detail.
It obviates the necessity of an absolute

of the people. It takes the world s
fowl suppl' and . all the product of ag
riculture out of the hands of thieves
and gamblers, and brings producer
and consumer into much nearer rela
tions than at present to the vast profit
and benefit of each. It. increases the
volume of money to the legitimate re-,
quirements of trade, and secures its is
sue directly from the government to
the people, requiring no tribute to mo
nopolistic corporations to get it in cir
culation. It gives to the currency
the property of elasticity by providing
for the cancelation and destruction of
"all money advanced by the govern
ment against such farm products." By
these provisions a uniformity of values
would be maintained and speculations
at the expense of both producer and
consumer would be at an end. The
government would resume its legiti
mate constitutional function of creat
ing and issuing the - currency of the
nation, which function, the best con
stitutional authorities, both past and
present, declare that it cannot lawful
ly delegate either to individuals or cor
porations. The sub-treasury plan does, there
fore, embrace the elements necessary
to remedy existing evils. This is the
first point to establish in its behalf.
Objections have been urged against it.
We freely admit that if these objec
tions are valid it is our dntv as reason
onable people to be honest with -ourselves
and with the country and aban
don the advocacy of the measure. It
develops upon its opponents to show
their validity. In considering some of
those that have been urged against it
we find them to be among the strong
est reasons in its favor when the facts
are properly understood and applied.
