One of the most frequently repeated
assertions of the friends of silver is
that the lack of silver money has
caused the fall in the price of wheat
and other farm products, and that the
addition of more money to our cur
rency would bring tho price of wheat
up to $1 per bushel or more. They in
dignantly deny that this would bo be
cause of the depreciation of silver as a
standard of value, but say that the
mere addition of more money to the
circulating medium of the country
would cause prices to advance.
Hero is a table which shows the
amount of silver money in the country
in each year since 1S71, and tho aver
age price of wheat in each j'ear. It
will be seen that the amount of silver
money in the United States in 1SJ)5
was twelve times as much as in 1871,
and that the price of wheat when we
had tho most silver money was just
two-thirds what it was when the silver
was one-twelfth of the amount which
it is today. Does this look as though
"more silver money in tho country"
would rrake the prices higher V

The fact is, the fall in tho price of
wheat is duo entirely to different
causes and is the result of an enor
mous production in other parts of tho
world with cheap labor and cheap
transportation. Senator Peffer says
in his report to the senate on tho low
prices of farm products that wheat in
India, whore wages of farui hands run
from G to 10 cants per day, is produced
at a cost of about 13 cents per bushel,
Adding the cost of transportation to
this, it is possible to put wheat of
India into the markets of London at a
total cost of 50 cents per bushel, which
is much less thau tho cost of produc
ing it on the average farm in the
United States. In other parts of the
world, where labor, land and trans
portation are also cheap, the produc
tion has also enormously increased,
thus filling with their low price the
markets of the world which formerly
drew their supplies from the United

Arranging III Interruptions.
The Now York Sun tells this story
illustrating Candidate Bryan's pro
pensity for playing to the galleries: "I
was in Washington," said a man in
the Fifth avenue hotel recently, "when
the boy orator of the Platte was a
member of congress. You know that
to attract attention a speaker must bo
interrupted in the course of his
speech. The oftener he is interrupted
the better the speech. It's a trick of
some congressmen to arrange for in
terruptions ahead ol time. Bryan was
one of those congressmen. He came
to me one day and said: 'Look-a-here,
now; I'm going to speak tomor
row and I've got one interruption. I
want to get one more. Now, when I
say so and so, I want somebody to ask
me this,' and ho handed me the ques
tion. 'They'll think, vou know thr.
it s a stumper, but I've got tho answer
for it. I'm ready for them.' Well, of
course, I got a man to iuterrupt him
with the question. I just tell you this
now to show that oven in those days
the boy orator was playing to tho gal
leries, and he hasn't got over it yet."

most important features of life. Re
ference is made in this instance to

be conscientiously endorsed, and its
