terest of general society is represented
in the demands of the Populist plat
form as above recited.
In the United States today all three
of the schools are represented. The
republican party represents the de
mand for a "managed currency in the
interests of creditors and money lend
ers. Ihe populists demand a managed
currency In the interests of general
society, and the democratic party de
mands a return to the automatic sys
tem whereby the volume of currency
is dependent upon the yield of the gola
and silver mines and that all supple
mentary paper money be issuea under
the authority of the government, and
although it may be made a legal tender
its quantity must be so restricted that
convertibility on demand into coin is
ine theory of those who hold to the
automatic system of money is that the
sources of supply, namely, access to
the mines of both gold and silver shall
always remain open to the people, and
that when money becomes scarce and
dear the production of the metals will
stimulated and the evil remedied,
and that whenever money becomes
abundant, and prices high affording
greater returns to labor in other fields
that the production of the precious
metals will adjust itself to the new
conditions, and that the plan of rely
ing upon the supply thus automatically
furnished will be infinitely safer than
relegating the matter of money supply
to the caprice of congress.
Those who uphold this theory do
not contend that the system is perfect,
and admit that it is conceivable that a
managed currency, honestly and wisely
managed, might produce more uniform
results, but they insist that the public
nas not reached that point of enlight
enment upon the money question, ana
that governments have not yet demon
strated their capacity to deal honestly
and fairly with all classes of its citi
zens sufficiently to warrant so hazard
ous an experiment as is involved in a
departure from the automatic system,
?n support of their contention they
PT. to the demonetization o. silver
and the consequent shrinkage of values
and prostration and' derangement of
business generally as the first fruits of
a managed system. They contend that
although the supply of gold at the
present time is large and may for a
few years meet the requirements of a
metallic money, yet that a similar con
dition has often before existed, and
that its periods were oi short duration.
They point to the fact luat it has sel
dom happened that the output of bot
gold and silver was large at the same
time, that generally when one was
being produced in abundance there was
a dearth of production of the other,
; and that experience proves that it has
required the free use of all of both
metals that could be mined to give
the world a reasonable degree of im
munity from the violent fluctuations
that have invariably attended tne pro
ductions of either metal alone. They
point to the fact that the money
changers and creditors, who have been
successful in forcing the managed sys-
tern so far as.it applies to the metals
by outlawing one of the metals are now
insisting upon the exercise of the sov
ereign function of controlling the issue
of paper money, ana are spending
fabulous sums to influence elections
and bribe statesmen and congress to
confer uPn them plenary power in the
ratter of issuing and controlling the
volume of paper money.
In other words, the contention of the
republican party is that so far as the
supply of paper money is concerned
there shall be no regulator except the
avarice and greed of the banking fra
ternity; that the ten thousand banking
institutions of our own country shall
have no check upon their power of un
limited inflation. Under the recent
currency law passed by congress the
system of inflation has been coupled
with a scheme to make the public debt
perpetual, and the banks are provided
with the means to force bond issues
as fast and as often as they desire to
do ?- in response to the unrestrained
,1!sSluus OI Sreea ana avarice,
Tne advocates of the automatic sys
tem contend that such a system of
PaPe.r money cannot be maintained con-i
vertible into coin, and that to main
tain the excessive and profitable infla
tions Oi. paper money by banks the
ban s will be driven to insis. upon
tremendously high-tariff walls against
importations in oruer to check the out
fiow of sold; that gold cannot be kept
ln the country under the high prices
that will follow bank inflation without
a system of tariffs to obstruct its out-
ward flow, and that thus the value of
gold money in the United States vu
: would destroy the convertibility of
i such notes into coin if the law of the

They insist that the recent currency
law passed by the republican trust con
gress is totally unscientific and is the
result of a conspiracy between the
money changers and trust magnates to
exploit the wealth producers of Amer
ica, absorb the wealth of this great na
tion, and reduce the masses of the peo
ple to a condition of helplessness and
misery as grinding as wa3 inflicteu
upon mankind in the Middle Ages by
the feudal barons.
s The demands of the democrats vfor
the re-establishment of the automatic
system of money supply through the
use of the product of ail the gold and
6ilver mines, as against the wild and
unscientific plan of. a currency man-
aged by and in the interest of the
money-changers and usurers, is a just,
honest and conservative demand and
one it, is believed will meet with the
approval of all intelligent, honest men
who desire the perpetuity of our free
government, and the preservation of
conditions under which enterprise and
intelligence and industry shall gauge
the success of every individual in every
department of industry.
The demands made by the populist
convention are just and conform to the
moral law and might be subscribed to
by all if the experience of the past
warranted the belief and expectation
that the people generally would give
to the subject of money the attention
it merits, so that in the adjustment of
all monetary legislation the interests
of all classes would be so justly repre
sented and considered that justice
would be done to all.
The populist leaders have conferred
upon the people of the nation a lasting
benefit by challenging the system of a
managed currency proposed by the
bankers, and setting up in a strong and
forceful manner the demands of justice
for all by demanding that the vo'iime
of currency shall be so controlled as
to maintain at all times a stable money
market and a stable price level.
That is .what the National Watch
man says, but the Independent says
that what ever is done the ; quantit,
of money will always remain with the
"caprices of congresses." The "auto
matic system" does not take it away
from the caprice of congress, and the
argument built upon the theory that
it does, is not sound. The "caprice of
congress always has and always will
regulate the quantity of money. That
being the fact the populist theory is
the only statement that can be sup
ported by reason.

HIS MAJESTY, BOB, " " r
THE YALE BABY.
h Mr. Eobert Westenmark, Sr., looked
across the table at his wife reproachful
ly. 'My dear, I can't see what possible
harm it could do the youngster."
' Well, if you would stop to consider
tht fact that the thermometer will ia
all probability stand at 90 decrees in
the shade all week, that a hotel is not
the best place in the world for a baby,
that there are about 40 summer diseases
especially designed for infants and that
your son is only G months old, you might
The evidence is certainly crushing,
but if we took Maggie and half a dozen
trunks full of preventives I confess I
don't see why it would hurt him a bit.
And just think how it would please the
fellows. Your son is the class baby

"Well, he's my baby, first, last and all
together, and I'm not going to have a
whole let of fellows handling him and
bouncing him around."
"I've been counting on showing him
to the fellows for weeks, but of course
if you feel this way about it we won't
go. I'll telegraph the boys this morniqg
that we won't come."
Mr. Westenmark then gave his wife
a chilly kiss and departed for the ofnee,
leaving Mrs. Westenmark lost in
thought until his highness came in and
Later in the day, when his highness,
together with his suit, went out to take
the air, a short halt was made at his
highness maternal grandmother's, where
Mrs. Westenmark, with tears in her
eyes, explained the unreasonable desire
of Robert Westenmark, Sr., to expose his
highness to the dangers of New Haven
during commencement week, "just be
cause he happens to be the class baby,"
"Well, and why not take him? It
would be fun for you, and think how it
would please Robert."
t "But, mamma, he might catch cold or
something, and then I'd never forgive
"Catch nonsense! He won't catch any-
thing there that he couldn't catch here.

do for him and go."
"I think it would be a foolish thing to

that the baby is always first."
"But ,this is a question of exposing
"With the faithful Maggie along there
is little danger of that. Be careful that
it isn't a question of selfishness on your
Mrs. Westenmark decided that the cold
hearted world was against her and went
home aggrieved. She found four tele
grams there directed to Robert, and
within the next hour six others arrived.
Mrs. Westenmark became alarmed and
1 said he had received 40 telegrams during j
the day she save in, and that was how i
suit started to New Haven on the 4:20
i Such a racket "as never was on land
or sea" greeted the 4:20 train as it rolled j
into New Haven on Friday afternoon.
His highness and his suit descended
from the train to the accompaniment of i
"Rah! Rah! Rah! 97!" which made his j
highness' eyes almost pop out of his head, j
with astonishment. Mrs. Westenmark j
was surrounded for a moment, and when
she turned to speak to Maggie she saw '

Maggie, breathless and irate, with pil

His highness mother, with fear on every

after them, only to see Ilayworth climb
to the top seat of a tallyho, the baby still
in his arms. The trumpeter blew a blast,
