SLANDERING MARK HANNA.
There has been no limit to the vile
slanders circulated about the able
chairman of the republican national
committee, Mark Hanna. The latest,
however, is novel, if not true. It is
oiaid that Hanna has untold rail-
lions at his command that at the pres
ent time he is paying Bryan's expenses
in the east in order to keep him talk
ing down there, and that he has
worked his scheme by the purchase of
democratic committeemen. Mark is
evidenily a bad boy, fertile of re
sources, but we can scarcely believe

I third of the gold in the world was
coined; now two-thirds of the gold in
the world is coined into money.
Thus it will be seen that there is
six times as much gold coin in the
world today as there was fifty years
ago, and since the population has only
increased fifty per cent, in that time,
it follows that there is four times as
much gold money for each individual
as there wasTialf a century ago.
Meanwhile the silver money ot the
world has more than doubled, being
now four billions of dollars, while it
was less than two billions a half cen
turv ago. The paper money of the
world has also increased largely
In addition to this, that more con
venient and elastic . medium of ex
change, barring paper, including
checks, drafls, bills of exchange, etc
has increased with even greater
rapidity, thus adding enormously to
the currency of the world.
It will bo seen from the above brief
statement of facts that the assumption
that gold has appreciated is not war
ranted, since the reason for its "ap-
appreciation" or increase in value
could be only because of an increased
demand for it. This is also clearly
shown by another fact which will be
discussed in the next leaflet, and
which will interest every working

The burden of Bryan's speeches four
vears aeo was cheapness. He wanted
free trade so things would be cheaper.
A step toward free trade was taken
which he said in congress was far
short of what ought to be done and
the result is that everything has
grown so cheap even Bryan himself
is ashamed of it, and refuses to men
tion tho tariff in any of his speeches.

of its executive officers to keep the

as to have one, may bo worth. An
American looks at his balance and
knows what it is worth.
The breezy Bryan made much of
his statement that wo should coin sil

wants to ignore tho earth when it

his opinion of tho weight of other na

THERE is another significant fact in
