COTTON UOIsiU UP.
Cotton is "going tip." The "yahoo"
goldbugs are yelling with glee.
"What did we tell yout" they
screech. "Didn't we tell you that
tupyly and demand regulated" this
"Didn't we tell yotz you made too
much cotton last yearf"
The "old he" goldbug journalist
of this State, with immeasurably
pious self-abnegation with an in
calculably vast amount of patron
izing piety says he is sorry for his
free silver friends because the fact
that cotton is going np knocks the
spots out of their arguments.
Oo-o-o oh! Wa-a-a-ah t! Um-m-m-
phmt!! See how ' we groan and
writhe in agony at seeing the foun
dation of our "arguments" knocked
from under us.' And he is sorry!
so SORRY !!
The United States cotton crop last
year was over nine million bales,
and much of it sold for less than five
cents. This year it appears the crop
will approximate seven million bales,
and it is no bringing over eight
cents. "Don't you see we are
right!" they yell. . "We told you the
law of supply and demand fixed the
price. Now you see it, don't you!"
Do not these fellows I novo hut the
very thought of a goldbug's know
ing anything is a measureless ab
surdity. No, we won't say that ex
actly. We will be less severe, and
say that the, very idea' of making a
goldbug admit he knows anything
along certain lines is au absurdity.
We have vainly tried to get them
into a non-personal controversy on
the free silver or money issue. We
have even left open little gaps in our
presentations with a hope that some
of them would Btep in and let us pen
them up. We wanted to,, see them
get out of such a controversy with
out "breaking" out. But they know
better than to try that. They are as
shy of a controversy, or of anything
that looks like an argument, as the
old watch crow is of a gun. They
won't be caught within range. of one
if they can help it. If they should be,
they are "just as sure to be knocked
"galley west" by . the argument , as
the crow is to be knocked over - by
the gun, if the gunner gets within
range. - .
Since we can only get in' sight of
them, we wish to put down ..some
thing for them to peck at and tup at,
and see what kind, of ant ids they
will cut up over it. Here it is: . .
Cotton is produced by the efforts
of men. Money is produced by the
efforts of men. . Money is as ..much
subject to the law of mpply and de
mand as is cotton, or anything else.
If the $vppljf of money is scarce, it
will require mere work or produce
to get it than would be the case if it
were plentiful. The supply of money
can be altogether regulated by
man. ,The supply of cotton cannot
be altogether regulated by. man.
Conditions which cannot be corn
batted by man affect the supply of
the production of labor more or less
every; year. It is altogher improb
able that conditions can arise which
can prevent man from regulating
the supply of money. Therefore
when the earth,, responds 'lav
ishly to the efforts of men to , pro
dace from it, the necessaries of life,
men ought to see that . ere )s
money enongh to measure these pro-,
ductions at a stable value, and to'
facilitate their exchange.1 IJntU tixla
is done, there will be no sense of hu
manity or justice in our financial
system. Until this is done we will
continue to be confronted with the,
utterly absurd and disgracefully un
reasonable fact that the "more a
man makes the poorer he gets."
Now goldbugs, let ns see you tug
at this kernel. What's the use of
playing the fool or acting the Har
about this matter any longer. If
you intend to stand by your present
policy, why don't yon eome out 'and
say that it if your purpose to make
money regulate everything, and that
you are determined that the work
and labor of humanity shall regulate
nothing! Every sensible, man sees
that this is your game, and every
honest man says so. You are not
fooling anybody but fools; and the
only question now is whether or not
there are fools enough to vote for a
continuance of your policy or wheth
er you have the power to enforce it.
And now, if .'we .could we would
persuade every farmer to plant lots
of cotton next year. Make twelve
or fifteen millions of bales if yon
want to. It will not ero down to five
cents, no . matter how much you
make. Next year is election vear.
The money power would try to cod-
die and pacify you by letting loose
enough money to keep the price np.
This "power' wants you to continue it
in power. It will do anything to
gain your goodwill, so you can. if
you wish to, plant without limit:
but remember one thing; you want to
get your cotton in market and sold
NO A.ONGEU A UUKMTION.
And the New York State Demo
cratic convention and the Massa
chusetts State Democratic conven
tion havo met and declared for the
gold standard and endorsed the
Cleveland administration. The New
York convention showed a dash of
defiant impudence and arrogant in
solence. It demanded the destruc
tion of all treasury notes, and the
issue of bonds which bonds will be
taken by the banks, and on these
bonds the banks will issue bank
notes and thus get complete control
of the financial system of the coun
try. Yes; and the Democratic party
"is the party of the people!" The
Caucasian will give any man who
will tell a bigger lie than this in the
same number of words $100. We don't
make this offer to encourage lying
but we would like to know if it is
possible for anybody to out Jie some
folks who call themselves Democrats
We don't think so.
Ten State Democratic conventions
have been held this year and eight of
them declared in favor of the single
gold standard. ' Only ono has de
clared for silver and one split wide
open on the question. Those de
olaring for the gold standard are
Kentucky, Iowa, Maryland, Ohio
Pennsylvania, New York, New
Jersey and Massachusetts. The one
declaring for silver is Mississippi
The split occurred in Nebraska, In
that State the silvermen were in i
majority at the regularly called con
vention and adopted a silver plat
form. Then the gold standard gang
bolted went off and put up a little
h 1 of its own and whooped for the
fiery, gold metal. ; '
j In the face of these facts, how
how much . sense must a man have
to perceive that the assertion that
the "Democratic party is the party
of silver" is false? Honestly now,
don't you think a second-class fool
can see that is a lief
' It is no longer a question as to
whether the free and unlimited coin
age of silver can be secured through
the Democratic party. We know it
cannot. The past record . and pres
ent declarations of the organization
constitute a' more .emphatic decla-t
tion of this fact than can be made in
words. ' The question for every
man now to decide is wb.eib.er he is
in favor of financial to form or not.
If he is and intends to work 1 for it
and vote for it, he .cannot possibly
take the Democratic party into con
sideration except as a factor that
must beought. , i -"
' We. do not believe that the con
ventions have reflected the senti
ments or expressed" the convictions
of the people generally. They have,
however, made plain , the policy of
whatever and jwhoeter constitute the
organized partyism or "machinery"
of the Democratic party.' The "party"
is therefore ' represented by these
conventions. If individuals are not,

mand a recognition of their views

AMERICA' FOOL WOMEN.
For some years the rich parvenue
class of women, in America have
made almost n open bids to marry
anything from Europe that had a
title, and that tad a customary title
to wear pants Deoeney, morality,
character, have never 'entered , into
these deals. Anything that was
called "Lord" or "Duke" has been
eagetly 'snapped up by the daughters
of rich Americans, and the parents
of ,the daughters have usually paid
immense sums for the grand, privil
ege of having those daughters called
"Lady So-and-So, pr "Dutchess'!

Old C. P. Huntingdon paid a Ger

marry his daughter.. One of Jay
Gould' daughters paid, it is said,
about five millions to a French earl
or marquis, or something, to marry
her. The latest is the catching of
an English duke by a female mem

the above instances to lead up to
what a London paper says by way

of the paper is "Truth," and it hits
a fine maik when it ironieally says:
"British mamas and their daughters will

MR.KEITH HITS THK BULL'S E B.

from J$y. B. Keith to the Wilming

tion. He says that all who attended
the convention, except ex-Governor
Jarvis and one or too more, are
pleased '. With - the . resolutions. He
calls upon the people to read the
resolutions and see for themselves
what objection any true friend of
silver or the people can have to
them. He says that the papers that
are ridiculing and misrepresenting
the convention have but one
purpose, and that is to fool the peo
ple into voting for a goldbug for
President next year. He 'also ex
poses in fine style Capt. Cooke and

; W. H. Harvey, the author of
Coin's Financial School, spoke to an
immense crowd of people at Bur
lington Junction, Mo., one day last
week, and in answer to the ques
tion, "What are your politics?"
said: "If the Republican party de
clares anew the principles of Lin
coln, I am a Republican.; If the
Democrats declare anew the', princi
ples of Jefferson, I am a Democrat
but if both the old parties declare
in favor of Great Britain and the
gold standard financial policy, then
I am a populist.? These remarks were
greeted, with greater applause than
any other part of the entire speech.
Mr. Harvey knows where the Peo
ple's party stands,' and has declared
time and again that there ' was no
hope for this country through either
of the old parties. He is in the Peo

Do you know that the debt of the
national government is 1,126,494,
999, while the entire t amount of
money alleged to be available for
circulation is $1,000,000,000! On
a oasis or seventy million peo
ple, this means that there is
in circulation for each man, wo
man and child about 123.00. But
each one owes about $16 of the
amount for the national debt. Now,
add to the national debt all the
bonded debts, State debts, county
debts, city debts, private debts all
of which must be paid by the peo
ple, and if you can think anything
at all yon will begin to see what a
thundering hard time the people are
going to have to pay out. Remem
ber, too, that nearly all of this debt
bears interest which must be paid.

contract leaves the government in help
Jess and, apparently, inextricable bank
ruptcy. The situation has but one so
lution. The retirement of the legal
tender notes' is inevitable. It is tbe
avowed policy of the national banks to
ips-reme reiireruent oi toe greenoacaa,
and further restrict and contract the
currency nearly rio,U.Uf ft). The banks
express a readiness to continue the
syndicate protection to the gold re
serve on this one condition. The ad
ministration murt accept the banks'
terms or continue to issue bouds, at tbe
peril uf Cleveland's impeachment by
the next Congress. The national bank
policy demand the retirement of the
greenbacks and what is known as the
Sherman notes. To etlect this a panic
was precipitated, an extra session of
Congress was convened and silver was
demonetized. Tti; scheme was expneed
t the time through the unintentional
publication of the national banker
association "confidential" circular,
dated March 3d, 18U3. It is interesting
and instructive to recall it now in con
nection with the gold policy of the
bond-issuing Democratic administra
tion. Here is the circular.
national banks demand.
"The interests or national bankers,"
says the-circular, "require immediate
financial legislation by Congress. Sil
ver, silver certificates and Treasury
notes must be retired, and the national
bank notes, upon a gold basis, trade the
only money. This will require the
authorization of from $.VK),oo,oo to
1.000.000.000 of new bond a h..i f
circulation. You will at once retire
one-third of your circulation and call
in one-half of your loans. Be careful
to make a money stringency felt among
your patrons, especially among influ
ential business men. Advocate an ex
tra session of Congress for the repeal
of tbe purchase clause of the Sherman
Jaw, and act with the other banks of
your city in securing a large petition to
Congress for its unconditional repeal,
per accompanying form. Use personal
influence with Congressmen, and par
ticularly let your wishes be known to
your Senator. The future life of na
tional banks as fixed and safe invest
ments depends upon immediate action,
as there is an increasing sentiment in
favor of government legal tender notes
and silver coinage."
THK CONSI'IKACY SUCCEEDS.
The scheme found au ally and pro
moter in the Cleveland administration.
Without this co-operation and endorse
ment failure was absolutely certain.
In his message to Congress January 28,
1895, the President recommended the
issue of $500,000,000 interest Waring
bands with a view to the cancellation
and retirement of $346,000,000 green
backs and $150,000,000 Sherman notes.
It was further recommended that na
tional banks be allowed to issue notes
up to the par value of these and exist
ing bonds, and to make the bank-of-issue-system
of currency permanent,
he recommended that the new bonds
run for fifty years. Compare the Pres
ident's message with t i - panic circular
of the National Banking Association
of New York, issued tbe day before his
inauguration to its 3,756 subordinate
batiks. The charge of collusion and
conspiracy is unanswerable. The dam
ning evidence of Democratic servility
to the national banks and gold specu
lators is irresistible. The administra
tion is in the merciless clutch of these
money sharks, and the Democratic
party is prostituted to their base, de
HOUR DAMNING PROOF
is found in the history of the gold syn
dicate contract. Large gold exports in
January last were used by the adminis
tration as an excuse for a bond issue.
The consequent depletion of gold in
the Treasury threatened a suspension
of "specie payments." "To save the
credit of the nation" $62,400,000 of
bonds were issued, in deflatma r rv-
gress and against the indignant pro-
mtoks vi i iie mx payers or the country.
A cowardly and subservient. twm
cratio Congress saved tbe President
irtmi impeaenment. uut at that time the
infamous secret contfsfr. with t k
syndicate was unknown. The contract
was drawn bv Francis I vmu
Cleveland's former law partner and the
uireu attorney oi tne syndicate.
PLAIN, tTNANSWKRABLE FACTS.
The facts are plain, and that the ini
quity of the transaction may not be
forgotton they are now recalled.
In just two years, less a week, Demo
cratic management, according to the
Democratic Chief of the Treasury Bu
reau of Statistics, had "dealt a heavier
blow to .the credit of the government
than it received during tbe civil war "
The Treasury, all of whose resources
had for two years been under absolute
and untrammeled Democratic control,
was, according to Secretary Carlisle in
February, 1,895, in imminent danger of
bankruptcy. Its revenue was insuffi
cient, its gold reserve was one-half
gope and it faced a run which would
have cleaned it out in three days.. Fac

1 WHJUCE JHI BAKES COMS IN.
! There are two sets of bankers in tbe
syndicate) partnership. The original
set who got the bonds at 104.49 and
passed them on at 112.26, deducting- a
sTiave of $392,362 as three-fourths of 1
per cent, commission, and now menace
the country with, another panio to com
pel the retirement of all national pa
per currency according to tbe condi
tions of the "confidential " circular of
March 8d, 1893. They offer tbe admin
istration $30,000,000 in gold in exchange
for legal tender paper money, and the
proposition is now under advisement.
Will these bankers compel the accept
ance of their terms? It is either -acceptance
or a big bond issue. Either
will suit tne bankers. TH Hio-m k
bond issue the bigger tbe profit to
them. The Democratic fold policy and
mismanagement nnta thn

Inevitable step Is tbe retirement of all
paper currency. Only two years aro
tbe taxation of legal tenders was a
BOAsrsD praotBATir acbicvkiiknt.
It was a common boast In the lat
State Campairn that "tbe Iemocratic
Congress (according to tbe State I e tri
or ralic Handbook ) passed a law depriv
ing the legal tender Treasury notes of
tbe Federal government of an attribute
wbichlbe Krpublican Coo greaee bad
given then. Tbe Uepubltcau Con
gresses had declared that uo town,
county or Mate should tax these notes.
And these things show how tbe Demo
cratic Congress is in sympathy with
the people." And what a deroagc-gical
Democratic Congress did two years
by way of 'sympathy with tbe
people," Democratic policy now de
mands shall be undone, by way .of
"sympathy" with lite gold speculators:
or what is tantamount to it the per
petuation of the gold standard Id tbi
country. Yet in the face of this glar
ing iH-mocratic record. and in the very
teeth of a roost aggrette gold policy.
Son t hern Democrat affect a belief In
tbe nomination of a silter candidate
for the Presidency and tbe ultimate
restoration of silver as a iH-mocratic
measure. It seems impossible that any
intelligent man should entertain so
transparent a delusion. The IVm
cratic candidate will be an avowed
and unconditional gold man. The
administration is actively and zeal
ously at work already to secure stu h a
nomination. Its determination is ev
erywhere in evidence. Its purpose is
nowhere disguised. It is under bond
to do it. It will lie done in defiance of
southern protest, and with the certain
understanding of unconditional south
ern submission. All the l-mocratic
silver agitation is worse than cross
roads demagogery. All the talk about
revolt and Insubordination will end as
did a like epiode in Kentucky.
RICH IS Hot'BlfOXISM.
Twelve years ago the people of Ken
tucky were confronted with the alter
native of electing to an important
State oflice, a degraded drunken, ob
scene wretch who bad been nominated
by the leuiocratic party, or of cbooing
a decent man nominated by the inde
pendents. The signs were that they
would do the latter, when the Loui
ville Courier-Journal threw it sell into
the breach an 1 demanded to know if a
man nominated by a liemocratta State
c invent ion was to be defeated just be
cause be got drnnk, and it tried to ex
cuse the besotted wretch's orgies in the
public lobby of a Ixuiville hotel by ex
claiming:" What if he did think he was
a roaring raccoon from the mountains,
and that it was his night to bowl?"
lie was elected, and had to be kept at
home, while a subordinate performed
the duties of his office.
THE NEW-BLOODED SOl'TH.
The Democratic ticket, with Cleve
land at its head, will command south
ern Democratic support. The ticket
cannot be made too often five, but that it
will be better, by comparison, than any
opposing ticket whatever its excel
lence. That is Boiirbonism. The
younger generation of Democratic
voters may see things differently.
Tarty revolt in the impending cam
paign will come from that source.
Boiirbonism will owe its extinction
some day to the new-blooded South.
