1 Lave a silver dollar, coined by
tin- government in 1703, moro than
a century ago. It is coined and
: tamped by tho sovereign authority
l tho nation. On reading the words
-. .tamped on it these facts aro made
t li ar: first, that it is a dollar not a
piomi.ii! to bo paid by a dollar, but
the dnllar itself; second, that it is
"one dollar or unit." Unit of what!
P.y reference to the act of Congress
of April 'J, 17t2, I find that it is the
unit of the
AMERICAN MONEY SYSTEM.
Third, I iind that it is not only "one
dollar or unit," but that tho govern
ment says it is "ono hundred cents."
I read tho act of April 2, 1792,
a'ain, and I lind that every silver,
irold and copper coin authorized to
)u coined into money was measured
in and coined by tho "dollar or
uuit." Therefore, it follows that
! silver dollar of 3711 grains of
pure silver is our "hundred cent dol
lar, and must be an honest dollar
and a sound dollar. And as it was
made a legal tender in payment of
debts, and as there are more than
!ar hundred millions of these silver
dollars in our money system, I have
wondered, as many others have,
why the oflicers of the government,
our public servants, who havo sworn
to protect our interests, are, in the
lace of the constitution, the law of
t'ue contract, and the reserved
KIO UTS OP THE PEOPLE,
lvfusing to pay out theso silver dol-Ur.-i.
The President says that gold and
tfold only is money of ultimate re
demption in payment of the nation's
obligations. To enforce this view he
rceonimonds that fivo hundred mil
lions of gold bonds be issued and
sold for gold, and that with thi3 gold
all the national paper money be re
ileouied and destroyed. This is an
issue go plain that no one need be
misled. It is the single gold stand
ard of England vs. the silver and
cold standard of the United States.
The Republican party is pledged in
I'AVOR OF BIMETALLISM
which means the use of both silver
and gold as standard money in the
American money system.
When the President tendered this
issue what answer did the Repub
lican House make, whose speaker,
Mr. Rood, is an active candidate for
the Presidency! It made no answer;
dodged the issue clear; passed in in
decent haste a bill to increase na
tional taxes forty million dollars a
must accept the issue. We must
make that issue
AS CLEAR AN fiCSLIoHT,
so that the people can know certain
IT what they are voting for, if we
are to win. The one imperative
need of the Republican party is a
leader who has views on this issue and
the courage to express them. We of
the rank and file want a man for
leader who is, like the fathers were,
for America and an American money
If the gold standard is to prevail,
then the greenbacks and Treasury
notes of S'M) must be retired and de
stroyed. President Cleveland says
they must go. What do Harrison,
McKinley, Heed, Morton, Allison
say! Are they in
FAVOR Of RETIRING THIS JIOJIEV?
Have they no opinions on this vital
question! As they remain silent, I
say the ono imperative need of the
party is A LEADER.
If the gold standard is to prevail.
then in that event, it will become
necessary to increase the bonded
debt of the nation five hundred mil
lions of dollars. What are the views
of the Republicans named on this
bonded debt issue! The masses of
the party have views on this issue.
THESE MEN NAMED ARE SILENT,
and that is why the demand is going
up for a leader.
Out party has come to the forks of
the road. We have reached a point
where patriotism, honor and states
manship are indispensable. Our
fathers, when they founded the re
public, gave us a chart drawn by
masterminds. They made our money
system for us a system which they
intended should be as permanent as
the government. They intended it
AH HACKED AM THE FLAG.
I hold that to make war on that
money system is just as much an
act of treason as to make war on the
In an evil hour our leaders dis
carded the chart our fathers gave
as. They concluded that Sherman
and Cleveland know more about
money than Hamilton, Jefferson and
Washington. Sherman and Cleve
land listened to the siren song sung
by John Bull, who, nnable to con
quer us on land or on sea, proposes,
through these men, to make us
CAPTIVES TO HIS MONEY SYSTEM.
Our fathers were for America and
an American money system. They
adopted the great Declaration of In
dependence. It may be necessary
for us to adopt a second one in 1S9G.
Shall the Republican party return
to the chart onr fathers made, or
follow the one made by John Bull
and his gold-standard advocates in
America! We have
COME TO THE FORKS OF THE ROAD.
What answer does Sherman make to
Cleveland's gold issue? What reply
does McKinley, need, Morton, Alli
son, Harrison make? Can it be pos
sible that there is no difference be
tween Cleveland and these so called
If there be a difference, what is
it i we who are to toiiow have a
right to know just what the differ
ence is. The day of subterfuges has
ended. The era of make-shifts has
gone by. The masses demand bread,
not a stone; principles, not policy;
NOT TOADYISM TO ENGLAND
They are determined to have an issue
with President Cleveland on his
gold-standard an issue so plain
that he who runs can read.

A BILL BY CONGRESSMAN STROWD
T Pre Id rr a 1'oata. Fractional Car-reary-What
It tooM and Waal ir
Congresrman Strowd "baa intro
duced the following excellent bill,
which, if enacted into law, would be
of great benefit and convenience to
the people, and no class of men
would appreciate the provisions of
this bill more than editors. As it
now stands they are loaded down
with postage stamps for subscrip
tions which not only cause much
trouble but entail considerable loss.
Postal notes are only obtained as a
rule in towns large enough to have a
bank and do not nerve the great
mass of our people who are com
pelled to patronize smaller offices.
If a postal currency could be
again given to the people it would
never be suffered to be retired. The
following is the full text of the bill
as introduced. Mr. Strowd hopes to
get it before the committee for dis
cussion: "A bill to provide a postal cur
rency, and for other purposes.
Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Con

tional currency. This was a crime
as well as a blunder. Not a single
petition was ever presented to Con
gress for their retirement, and the
object of the bill was unknown to
nearly all the people until the blow
was struck. The largest amount of
fractional currency outstanding at
any one time was $40,912,003, in
184. The amount outstanding in
1880 was $15,589,888. In 1879 an
act was passed declaring $8,375,934
