votes and at its conclusion Mr. Butter

(Cut this out and put it in your pocket for
Some well meaninc people are
greatly puzzled to understand why,
if tho silvor dollar would bo a 50
cent dollar under a free and un
limited coinage net, it if not a 50
cent dollar now; and why, if it is as
good as a gold dollar now, it will
not contiuuo to bo worth 100 coots.
Ilenublicnos and gold democrats are
charged with asserting that the sil
ver dollar now in circulation i9 a 50
cent dollar. They assert nothing of
the kind. The present silver dollar
is no moro a oO-cent dollar than the
present paper dollar ia u 50-cont dol
lar; and no sound money man says
that it is.
The bullion in the present silver
dollar is, to be sure, worth only 50
cents. But what of that? The
government does three things for the
silver dollar. (1) It pledges its faith
to ihe holder to keep it at par with
gold. (2) It binds itself to accept it
in payment of debts due the govern
ment as the full tauivalent of 100
cents :n cold. (3 It maintains at
all times a sufficient gold reserve in
tho treasury as a guaranty for the
redemption of its promises. Because
it does these three thinsrs, it has a
right lo insist that silver dollar shall
be a legal tender for KK) cents
measured in gold, and the power to
secure its accoptaice as such in
business transaction i between private
citizons. Should it fail to do these
three things, or any one of them, the
legal tender act would become a dead
letter, and the silver dollar would
pas current at its bullion value and
Now, if unlimited coinage of silver
were allowed at the false ratio, that
is. any ratio other than tho commer
cial ratio, the covernment could no
lonirer redeem the silver dollar in
gold, directly or indirectly. So many
silver dollars would be coined, that
they could not bo unloaded uton the
government in the payment of treas
ury dues. The only way in which
the government could maintain the
parity between its gold and silver
coin would be by exchanging gold
for silver aud silver for gold on do
in and. To do this, a larger gold re
serve would bo necessary. But, in
stead of being largely under free and
unlimited coinage it would disappear
entirel3T. Then tho pledge of the
government to maintain the silver
and the gold dollar at par with each
other would become worthless because
impossible of fulfillment. That would
eliminate from tho silver dollar the
element of credit which now attaches
to it and floats it at douhle its in
trinsic value. It would then bo worth
no more than it is worth as bullion,
and no man would accept it in trade
for more thau fifty cents in gold.
When all this process of deprecia
tion should have been gone through
and the end of it reached, then and
not until then tho eilver dollar
would be a "0-cent dollar. The ex
pression a ou-cent uoiiat relates
exclusively to the future, not to the
present current valuation of the silver
uollar. It is a prophecy and a warn

DeeHtig Roller Bearing ideal Mower, 4 1-2 and 5-Foot Cut,
J Round of Startling Victories
Has marked tho path of the Doering Ideal Mower. No grass is too heavy or too light, no land is too rough and ne
service is too revere for this plucky little Ideal hero. Instead of friction bearings it has rollers and balls; the crank
shaft is parallel with the ground so that the SELF-ADJUSTING PITMAN moves steadily BACK and forth in work
man like fashion: the separated ledger plates hold the grasses like the roller of a feed cutter, and uothmg can escape
or draw in under tho sickle; the adjustable drag bar pays the interest on the investment.
The driver of tho Ideal Mower can cut as slow as ho likes and it is never necessaay to back when starting.
The uso of roller and ball bearings, has eliminated friction, and instead of grinding the bearings all the power
is used in cutting grass.
