TwaKiod f. Dollars Soie People
Think are ia Circulation.
It U Quite Evident That Moral Qual
ity Do Sot Iahere ia Dol
lar of any Kind.
Many of Use leading papers of the
country bare much to say about bonett
and dibhonest dollars, in praise of tbe
one and liisparagement of tbe other.
Have we then in circulation a kind of
dollar that differs from what a dollar
should be. and from others of its kind
bo much as to merit the title of dis
honor? What is an honest dollar? It
is manifest that moral quality does not
inhere in dollars of any kind; they are
but tbe tools of a certain trade. If,
therefore, the term dishonest be ap
plied to any dollars it must be because
the dollars are not either properly
made, or not justly used.
The authority to make dollars is by
the will of the people vested in con
gress. I believe it is not intimated by
any one that dollars have been made in
violation of the will of the people as
expressed in law. Our dollars are
then all honestly made. The use of
dollars is to buy goods and pay debts,
and these are more different character
istics than at first sight appears.
In the buying of goods the dollar al
ways passes for what it is worth; it is
not forced upon the seller for more or
less than he thinks it worth; but in the
paying of debts the creditor is obliged
to take il, and the debtor is obliged to
give it without any regard to its esti
It is, therefore, in the matter of
debt-paying that dollars find oppor
tunity to be dishonest, or more prop,
erly speaking, that men give or take
injustice by their use. So the real ques.
tion we are investigating resolves itself
into this: Are tbere any dollars in use
with which either a creditor or a debt
or may be wronged in the paying of a
debt? If there are any such it is a
matter of general concern that they be
replaced with honest dollars, because
any government, or people, or civiliza
tion becomes doomed as soon as uni
versal dishonesty becomes a ma ter of
Regarded as a debt-payer, an honest
dollar is one that pays a debt exactly
giving neither moro nor less than is
due. Just as the marksman misses
his aim whether the shot goes to the
right or left, or above or below the
mark, so a dollar is equally dishonest
whether it pays to much or too little
Turning now from the consideration
of the theoretical dollars to that of the
actual dollars, we find that all of our
dollars, whether made of gold, silver
or paper, are equal both as purchasers
or debt-payers, therefore we have no
dishonest dollars. If a charge of wrong
doing would hold upon any of our dol
lars it would be upon the gold one be
cause it is the standard dollar.
While our dollars all do the work for
which they are made, our monetary
system does injustice to very many,
perhaps to the majority of the people.
We have decreased the number of dol
lars, thus increasing the value of those
that remain, until debts of long stand
ing have been.added to as much a;
one-third in amount
The sober, honest, industrial people
of the country are confronted with a
new problem in the science of govern
ment, and one which they cannot much
longer ignore. Good people have in
the past been wont to let tho question
of money-supply solve itself; they
used whatever they . had, and were
content to attribute any ills they might
suffer from a deficient circulation to
an inscrutable Providence, i'l'hey did
not perceive the connection between
money-supply and prosperity; and civ
ilization went up or down as the tide
of money ebbed and flowed.
In the dark ages when the quantity
of money was reduced to a minimum,
80ci3ty well nigh perished and Chris
tian peoples became almost as barber
ous as was their fathers who lived be
fore the invention of money. The civ
ilization of the present day cannot
wait upon the money that happens to
be found. It cannot afford to go with
out. Money does the work of a tool;
it may be but a mere tool; perhaps it;
should be nothing mon, for its real
usefulness stops there; and as a tool
the tool of trade it cnn be made and
in just such quantity as will best facil
itate the work that waits to be done.
Beneath all the fog that is thrown
around the subject, designedly and
otherwise, there is solid and safe foot
ing for those who will take the trouble
to look for it, and are disposed to do
justice. The-supply of money must be
regulated with reference solely to the
greatest good to the greatest number
before we can have peace.
The improvement of our money will
not come by the calling of hard names
in a wordy war, or by the vituperative
slaughter of reputations. The bulk of
the American people are honest. Show
them the right and they will do it. If
they are not now doing just what we,
think they should do, it is presumpw
tive evidence that we have not yet been
able to make the case clear to them.

Hyattsville, Md., Aug. 12. 1891.
LAND AS A BASIS.
It it the Best Security tho Civilized
World Knows Anything About.
Hon. H. C. Dillon of Los Angeles,
state organizer of the California farm
ers1 alliance, has this tito say about
Hon. Leland Stanford and his proposed
land loan scheme:
Having now discovered that out
present basis is inadequate, it is plain
ly the duty of the government to add
an additional basis. The basis which
the people's party propose is the one
suggested by one of the most eminent
and successful men of this age, Sena
tor Stanford of California. He sug'
gests that cultivated lands be added as
a basis upon which the government
should issue money. The security is
permanent and indestructible. Capital
is the result of labor applied to land.
Rent, interest and wages are paid out
of it It is the best security the civil
lzed world knows anything of.
The power of the government to is
sue legal bonds, paper money, has
been established by the United State
supreme court and the proposition to
lend it to the people at a rate not to
exceed 2 ner cent on cultivated land.
. vue-nkii ueir value is ctruus.
ale a transaction at the present
scheme by which it lends to the na
tional banks at 1 per rent interest, 'X
per cent of the par value of its own
promises to pay (United State)' bonds.
If I have 1100,000 li United States
bond and deposit them with th
treasurer, the government permit me
to loan 90 per cent of the face value ol
the bonds in national bank currency
without interest, and at tbe same tim
it pays mo interest on by bonds
at 4i per cent I pocket tbe
bank notes and lend them to the farm
ers at 12 per cent or any rate I can
force them to pay. Now, is the bond
any better security than the land, or
is there any better reason why the gov
ernment should lend to banks at 1 per
cent than to farmer at 2 per cent!
Were it not for the lands of these Unit
ed States and the labor expended on it
by her hardy yeomanry, her bond
would be worthless. Besides, we must
tako care of these yeomen if we want
provisions. There are now 9,000,000
mortgaged farms. The debt is so
great it can never be paid. The courts
are burdened with foreclosures. Some
thing must be done. The government
always rushes to the aid ef Wall street
when her bankers are in distresss, is it
not high time to aid the farmer?
My conviction is that Mr. Stanford
sincerely believes.as I do, that if money
is furnished to the people in propor
tion to their needs, the greatest evil of
our day will be removed. In addition
this, the 2 per cent the borrower pays
the government for the use of the
money will defray all the expenses of
the government and we thus get rid of
this vexed question of tariff and inter
nal revenue. As 97 per cent of our
business is done on credit, what harm
could possibly come by substituting
say 20 per cent of actual money for
credit? This would give us $20,000,.
000,000 of circulating medium. Now,
2 per cent on this would return a rev
enue to the govcrnmont of $400,000,000
which ought to be enough for a govern
ment honestly and economically ad
ministered. It solves the tax question.
It places all taxes on land in a more
popular form than Henry George's
plan. The man who borrows the
money pays the tax. It transfers the
burden of taxation directly to the ben
eficiary. Under the present system
the men who pay the taxes get noth
ing in return.
A Fine Kettle of FLU.
There is certainly a vast amount of
wisdom among our modern political
philosophers. No doubt we "hay
seeds" are incapable of fathoming
their sublime ' depths. How could
subalterns and subordinates," "men
of the hoe," a customer to "pumpkins
and shucks philosophy." measure up
to the giant intellects that gave utter
ance to such ponderous thoughts as
the following: The Globe-Democrat
Cotton has lately touched the lowest
point since 1855, owing to the largest
crop on record; and the present crop
promises to be even larger than the
last It is possible, evidently, to have
too much cotton as well as to have too
And the St Louis Republic, equally
as good Democratic authority, says:
Leading newspapers of the cotton
belt seriously advise planters to plow
up every fourth row of their crops
now, when half made.
Yet both these philosophers testify
that tens of thousands suffer every
winter on account of insufficient cloth
ing, and large numbers of hands are
idle in our factories because they have
shut down. We doubt if any more
than one-fourth ot the people of this
country possess sufficient clothing to
keep them comfortable during all sea
sons of the year.
And yet Dr. Dy en forth is practising,
at the expense of tho government and
with the hearty approval of such pro
gressive papers as we have quoted, on
an experiment which, if it proves suc
cessful, will insure more abundant
crops than ever all over the United
State3. Indeed, if rain can be pro
duced at pleasure, there will bo no
more failures of crops.
Then the government statistian
comes in and savs the great cause or
agricultural depression is over-production.
Yet J. J. Ingalls, three times a
senator from Kansas and until recently
president of the senate, says: "there
are 10, 000, 000 people in this country
(nearly one-sixth of our population)
who seldom get a good square meal."
Again, Texas and all our western
states are endeavoring to make a cred
itable exhibition of our industries at
the World's Columbian exposition with
the supremo object in view of attract
ing emigrants to our vacant lands so
they can increase our over-production,
Secure the Courts.
The Chicago Tribune, in speaking
of the Demo-Rep. fusion in Kansas, to
prevent the Alliance, if possible, from
electing the judges says: "Bad legisla
tion can be endured, but bad courts nev
er." There is a great deal of food for
thought in that sentence, not only for
the Kansas farmers, but for the indus
trial hosts all over the country. The
main bulwark of the money power is
in the courts. Entrenched there they
will defy the will of the people as ex
pressed by their legislators.
The independents ot Kansas and
Nebraska have seen something of
"bad courts" themselves. They have
seen a supreme court decide that the
Nebraska legislature could not insti
tute an investigation of contested elec
tion cases without the governor, whoso
own election and citizenship both were
contested, should assemble them for
that purpose. They have seen the
seme court when called upon for a
decision as to the citizenship of said
alleged governor, adjourn with all
the evidence before it to give him an
opportunity to defeat the will of the
people and serve the corporations
whose tools they both were, by ve
toing the maximum freight bill, and
immediately reassemble and decide
that he was not even a citizen of the
United States. The people have seen
enough of that kinc, of courts, and the
hydra-headed party of the plutocrats
won't Succeed in saving such from
their righteous wrath. Iowa Tribune,

The partisan lash is being w ielded
by exerienced hands to herd the peo
ple into the party pen3 of the two old
parties Republican journals of the
west, and extreme Democratic jour
nals of our section, read very much

In his report of statistics relating to
the factory system of the United
States. Carrol D. Wright in charge of
that department of the census work of
It would require about one hun
dred and fifty millions of persons,
working under the old system, to pro
duce the goods made by three millions
or so factory workers of to-day. "
This is a startling statement when
fully comprehended. It is but another
way of saying that the invention of
labor saving machinery and tlio sys
temization of methods is now displac
ing the labor of 117,000.000 people In
the United States. Were the hours
of labor reduced to correspond with
this increased power of production
the United Stites alone would, if Mr.
Wright's estimate is correct afford
employment to the idle of the civilized
world, and thereby eliminate all the
want and suffering and crime conse
quent upon it But this displacement
of labor is not limited to the factory
system. It is equally true of all in
dustrial pursuits. The introduction
of modern machinery and modern
methods has vastly increased the pro
ductive power of man; and this fact
under normal conditions, should
insure more leisure to all. rather than
enforced idleness and consequent want
to so large a number.
When we consider, says the To-
peka Advocate that the men who
formerly performed the labor by the
old system have been the men who
Invented the machinery which has
multiplied the power of production;
and when we reflect that the laboring
classes, instead of reaping the benefits
that have resulted to the world from
these triumphs of their genius and in
dustry, have thereby been deprived
of employment we are led to ques
tion, not only the wisdom,
justice of this modern
The labor which formerly
strong men to perforin, is
means of improved machinery,
formed by women and children,
and that too, iu occupations entirely
unsuited to the age and sex of the
employed, solely because their ser
vices can be secured for a smallor
compensation. This is likewise one
of the causes of the en
forced idleness of the American
workman; and through this enforced
idleness, of tho great depression of
every industrial pursuit Idle men
not only add nothing to the wealth
and productive resources of the
country, but they are likewise from
necessity, non-consumers of the pro
ducts ot industry.
How may thes3 evils be more read
ily remedied than by a genoral re
duction of the hours of labor? If the
hours bo" reduced so that tho labor of
two men would be required to accom
plish what is now performed by ono,
the active industrial force will be
doubled. This should be done with
out corresponding reduction of wages.
Every man taken from the ranks of
enforced idloness and added to the
list of active producers, will, at the
same time be added to the list of con
sumers of agricultural and manufac
tured products. This increased con
sumption will cause increased demand,
which in turn will stimulate produc
tion to furnish increased supplies; and
the inevitable result must be con
stantly increasing reciprocal demand
for labor and all its products. Re
duction of the hours of labor therefore,
so far from being inimical to any in
terest, must inevitably inure to the
common benefit of all. Let us push
the demand for shorter horn's.
One of tho pet phrases of the state
press is "the demagogues who lead
the Alliance" and the ' office-seekers
in charse of the Alliance." This is
stated in r rnestness and faith by
some who believe it; by others it is
simply a part of their tactics in poll
tics" which they have been using for
twenty years. Whoever opposes them
is a demagogue, and every office-seeker
who has not their endorsement is a
bad man from Bitter creek.
The people ought to know that the
