EX61AM AMD THE SILVER QUESTION.
In watUra of international policy neither tbU
c any other country dares to act in doliberato
ii':ton;snj to its neighbour?. Tho comity of,
: atior;.j requires that no Tower should follow a
trj.-ro damaging, directly cr indirectly, to th
.lntert of, a country with which it is at peace.
At tho irae timo.wo seem to be shaping towards
11 course which may bring us into awkward conflict
rUh Iho populartcntimont,if not with thegovern
itg .ovvori cf countries- with whom we hold'
I ciitically friondly relations. In another column
wo print extracts from a speech made in tho
Amcricr.u Senato the. other day by Mr. Don,
Ct.u.croo, who represents Pennsylvania. Tho
fiat if JIr. Cameron's contention was that
tho Ecglish policy on the all-absorbing
rtosotary fjuestion is directly antagonistic
to American interests, and that tha United
S'.A.e must throw off tho influonce o English'
i.oai it she mcai to maintain tho steady march
t i her prosperity. There havo not boon wanting,
oi late, icdications of growing irritation with thi3
country for itsdog-in-the-mangerattitudetowards
a'piastion that is convulsing two continents, and
f;ra vo!y compromising the futuro of the poorer,
JStatea in Europe This feeling has been voiced
-in America by Senator Lodge, whoso proposal
Y vfrtnaily shut" ouX iJirtisU" gootls" from" tho
United Sitate3 until wo shoulJ asstno to a
bimetallic convention, though extreme and
absurd, indicates tho trend of sentiment on the
other tide of tho Atlantic. JJr. Cameron is
cinch milder, and nY&kes war rather on thoso
who acclimatiso English ideas in America than'
cn this country ; but tho sentiment has tho Eaipo
origin in both case?.
Senator LoJge is not a silver mahin tbnTsual
enso, being opposed out and-out to free coinage
iu tho United States under existing conditions,
nr.d, therefore, his viows, though tinged with
fctrong feeling, may attract mere attention here
Han thoso of the pronounced tilverites. Mr.
Lodgo is, very bitter about tho failure of the
L'russcls conference of last year, where the atti
Ui-leof tho Jiritish ofucial delegates was "ecarceiy
" lessthan discourteous "to the UnitcdStates.and
l.e believes that nine-tenths of the American
jiple regard it in that light." A feeling cf this
Lin I is not to be lightly ignored. Ve hav
:tu ;ucnt diplomatic chnferencos with the United
iriUtos; but, as a rule, thcro is seldom
ciated with these any sense of animus hfttweca
tha peoples cf the two countries, and such
Rquabbles pass over and are forgotten, -But now
we are encouraging tho growth of a feeling
that on a quostion which affects tho prosperity
cf. millions of individual Americans this
country Is inclined to entertain views unfriendly
to the States. We know, of course, that the
unfriendliness 13 accidental, and that our xnone
tary policy is controlled by purely selfish con
derations so purely eolfish that we do not"
mind eo&iiig India cuHeiiug from liur action
much moro than America does. The Americans
p.ve sufficiently cld-fashioned to believe that
it is the part of a friend to show hicasolf friendly,
and when this country turns a deaf ear to the
plaint of half the world, including all the New
Wcsrl J,they,not .unnaturally, take itunkindly. It
is net for us to say whether the feeling of irri
Utioa is wholly justified or not ; it exists, and
that i3 tho main point, Moreover, it is taking
a sh.v e that may entail very awkward conse
ouonces on us. Ths recent proposal to coin
Mexican dollars in ban Francisco was . a bid
towards giving us an object lesson by ousting
us from our commanding position in Eitarn
Senator Cameron points a plain moral when
ho remarks that if the United States would
venture to cut herself adrift frbm Europe and
tako outright to silver, fiho -would have alJ
America and Asia at her back, and would eom.
xnand the markets of both Continents. "The.
barrier cf gold would be mora fatal than any
" barrier of a custom-house. Tho bond of silver
41 would ba stronger than any bond of frea
" trade." There can bo no doubt abont it, thatt
if tho United Sfates were to adopt a silver
basis tc-morrovr British trado would be ruinedj
before tb year. was out. Every American
industry would be protected, not onj aJLfcomy,
but in every other market. Cicourse, the
States would suffer to a certain extent through
Laving to pay her obligations abroad in gold ;
but the loss on exchange under thi3 head would
be a mere drop in tho bucket compared with the
profits to be reaped from the markets of South.
America and Asia,, to say nothing of Europe.
The marvel is that' the United States has not?
long ago seized the opportunity, and but for the)
belief that the way of England is necessarily the '
way to commercial success and prosperity, un
doubtedlyit-wouldhave been done longag5. Now;
Americans aro Awakening to the fact that
so long as they narrow their ambition to be
" comiDg a larger England" they cannot beat
us. It has been a piece of luck for us
that it has never before 'occurred to the?
Americans to scoop us oat of -the -worlds
markets by going; on A silver basi, and i
might servo in xlght lf, irritated by the.. con
temptuous apathy of our Government to-the
gravity of the silver problem, the Americans
retaliate by freezing out gold. It could easily
be done, and we propose shortly -to how, byj
evidence collected from perfectly-""unprejudiced;
sources, that "even now the proews lias begun
and is proceeding at a rate that will astonish?
most people, and probably make this country
regret that it did not at an earlier stage fashion

give the alleged details of Mr. I'ryan
having joined a lodge of the order of
the A. K A., the town and date of such
joining. Mark Uanna's tactics are to
hit Bryan both coming and going and
to show to the Catholics that he is a A.
P. AM and to show to the Protect a t
that he is a Catholic. The truth
that Mr. Bryan is an American citizen,
imbued with thoroughly American
ideas and believing in the right cf tbe
supremacy of the Cnited Slates. lie
is a member ol t he Presbyterian church.
and his father and mother before bun
were of the same persuasion. He does
not belong to the order of tbe A. P. A.
nor to the Catholic church. He is
broad enough to eschew all such ques
tions of prejudice and work for the
patriotic well-being of Ins country.
The press should give this information
as wide circula'iou as possible at once.
inorder to thwart this roorback, which
is to be tpruig against Mr. Bryan un
mediately before the election. It
would be well also to caution people
asrainst any other kind of a lie which
may be hatched out agaiust Mr. Bryan
immediately previous to election, aa
oer enemies are denperate, and will
absolutely stop at nothing which will
tend to accomplish success for them
