JOIST DISCUS3I0H BY EDWABD
EOSEWATEE AND J. BUEEOWS.
ME. EOSEWATEB'S AEGUMEST.
1. Admitting that the double standard
would be very desirable, it has become
manifest to every intelligent financier
that we can never permanently restore
silver to any fixed ratio with gold unless
the leading nations of the world unite
upon the double standard.
1. With free and unlimited silver coin
age by the United States alone, we would
be just what Mexico is today, a silver
standatd nation. Gold would be driven
out of this country just as it has been
out of Mexico and that means a fearful
contraction of our volume of money and
a terrific crash that would carry down
with it our entire fabric of credits which
now forms the basis of all our commerce
and industry. With gold at a premium
over $000,000,000 cf gold coin and 134(1,
000,000 of greenbacks, which are re
deemable in gold, would be withdrawn
from circulation. Instead of $24.00 per
capita we would have less than 810 per
capita of actual money in circulation
All the silver product of this country
converted into silver dollars would only
add to our volume of currency $70,000-,
000 a year. At that rate it would take
nine years of free coinage before we
could replace the gold that would bo
forced out of circulation, and it would
take thirteen years of free coin
age to replace the gold and green
backs. 8. But this is not the worst feature.
Suppose it was absolutely certain that
congress would pass a free coinage bill
and the president stood pledged to ap
prove it. Long , before the bill had
reached its final passage there would be
a run by depositors on all the banks and
trust companies. Merchants and manu
facturers would transform their avail-
ahln funds into rnld drafts and foreign
bills of exchange. The savings banks
would bo besieged and stormed by ex
cited and exasperated working people
alarmed over tho prospect that tteir
scanty savings would depreciato in pur
chasing power. Money lenders every
where would crowd debtors and put on
the thumb screws to either force a col
lection before gdd went up to a pre
mium or compel tho debtor to make a
concession. Every debtor w hose notes
or interest were payable in gold would
have to Dav a bier premium. This is no
overdrawn picture, but would fall far
short of the reality, me panic oi isob,
and the crash of 1873 that carried down
over 5.000 firms, would be mere child's
nliiv in coniDarison.
4. Assume, if you please, that we have
safely passed tuts crisis, now wouiu tne
farmer or wane worker fare with a de
preciated currency, much smaller in vol
ume than our present circulation?
Prices would be up, but the farmer
would get American money with its
diminished purchasing power for his
products and the wage worker paying
two prices for the necessaries of life
would have to be on a perpetual strike
to get his wages raised.
5. Mr. Burrows, pointing to the gospel
of St John, the bullion:ure banter, ex
claims it is not true gold will disappear
from circulation with free and unlimited
coinatre. Franco has held up silver
under creat variation of ratio and
America certainly will be able to do
the same thing. Free coinage will re
store silver to $1 29 an ounce and keep
it on a par with sold. W ell. if free carn
age will not disturb our currency, then
prices of farm products and commod
ities will remain just where they are
now. Who, then wjll be benefited by,
"free cbln'age? ' Would not the whole ad
vantage rest with the bullionaire mine
owner, who would be in position to ex
change 73 cents worth of bullion for one
dollar's worth of grain, meat, cotton or
labor? Where would the farmer's profit
come in? Do not these facts force upon
us the conclusion that the free and un
1'id ited coinage of silver is not expedient
ane would not, if carried into effect, pro
mote the public welfare?
ME. BTJEE0WS' EEPLY.
Mr. Rosewater asserts that "it has
been manifest to every intelligent finan
cier," etc, (see his first paragraph.)
First, this has not become manifest to
all only to a powerful part, really nu
merically only a small part, of the peo
ple. The organized money loaning in
terest of New York and New England
tho interest which controls the Ameri
can banker's association and the New
York clearing heuse an interest that is
pecuniarily interested in deciding this
question in favor of the singlo gold
standard is arrayed against all the oal
aiicu of the people; and againpt all
other geograplcal sections. All over
the country all through the enst, even
are eminent financiers who favor the
restoration of silver to free coinage Mr.
St. John, prf sident of a New York na
tional bank whom Mr. Rosewater false
ly terms "'a bullioniaire banker;" Mr.
Thompson of New York, another emi
nent national banker, arc among
But how does Mr. Ilosewater know
silver cannot be "permanently restored"
etc. Has it been tried? Has silver
been n s'ored to free coinage for a day
sinco 1S73? No. Charlatan experiments
the purchase of a certain amount of
bullion per month wild financial
schemes which would have been met
only with ridicule had they been pro
posed by the peoples' party, have been
put forward to prevent the adoption of
the measure demanded by tho people
to keep silver discredited, to delude and
deceive the country. The present law,
by which the U. S. is buying a commod
ity and "laying it aside," as president
Harrison says, and which does not em
bracea single sound financial principle,
was originated and passed by the gold
bues, as a sop to prevent free coinaee.
It would be a disgrace on the statute
books of any half-civilized nation. When
the attempt to restore silver has been
honestly made and failed, Mr. Rose
water may repeat his unfounded asser
tion. As a matter oi iact tne disasters now
threatening Europe from the domonetl
zation of si;ver are such that Germany
ana the Latin union win nasten to re
store it as soon as we set tho example
They followed our example before and
woind do so again.
Mr Rosewater now goes on to invoke
the srhost of that Oreshain law agxm
about the disappearance of gold, and he
even luciuues the greenbacks this time.
I do not care to go over this qncstion
again. The same bug bear was held up
when tho Bland bill tor the coinage of
$3,000,000 per month was passed. The
prophets of evil then asserted that that
law would soon drive all the gold out of
tho country. w hat was the fact? Tho
country never gained gold so rapidly
as during tne period that law was in
force. Ihis is a suflicient answer for
the prophecies of disaster until the
prophets can produce at least one fact
to jdstiiv tnem.
Upon what, is all this horrible vision
nredlcatrid? Purely upon his disordered
imagination. A bank run never resulted
Shall We Have Free and
limited Silver Coinage.
from an increase of money. There
has never been a financial panic in this
country that did not result directly from
a too greatly expanded credit on too
narrow a foundation oi aciual money.
I shewed in my last article that con
traction produced the panic of 1873.
Expansion of credit, without expansion
of actual money, produced the panic of
1857 not '03 as Mr. Kosewater says.
These periodical panics are always
caused bv un inflation of bank credits.
This is "the history of every conn
try that has ever had this insubstantial
structure of credit currency money
created out of nothing confidence mo
ney. M Leod says:
"The inability of credit ihepi to extinguish
tbe credit tbejr nave created com moul;
called the failure of baBas Ulho cause of
the most terriole saclal calamities oi mod
Gen. A. J. Warner says:
"Hem is the storm centre the rerlon In
whicd every commercial cvolone has had its
origin. There has not been panic in a hun
dred years thnt has not been the resale of
the cupidity of banks, and for which the
DauKS nave aoi oeen u.recuy retpeosiBia.
If silver is restored it would be as
much a money of account as gold, and
as much would pay bank obligations,
and all other debts the same as gold.
Is an accession of legal tender money
one of the characteristics oi ban
Mr. Rosewater depicts, as a result of
silver restoration, as insane rush for
gold. What would the people want it
tor? Not fcr money, because as mouey
it would not be worth as much as now.
Not for the arts, etc., because that de
mand is tilled now. Not for hoarding.
because in flush times there is less hoard
ing than in times of stringency. Not
for greater profit elsewhere, because
with returning prosperity and universal
industry there is no spot on God's green
earth where money could be so profit
ably employed as here. The simple
fact is that all these horrid imaginings
oi dire disaster from an Increase of the
one thing of all others that all men are
striving lor are as basdlesas the fevered
dreams of an unbalanced and disordered
In his fourth paragraph Mr. Rosewa
ter attain raises the question of the pur
chasing power of money as it affects
wages of working men. we have
threshed this question over and over.
There is much in it, enough to make a
long article. I dismiss it now with the
simple request to Mr. 11 , or any one to
compare the prosperity of working men
and farmers in any era or low prices
with their prosperity in any era of high
Tbe prospect of a benefit to the "bul
lionaire mine owner" seems to have
about the same effect upon a gold bug
as a red rag has on a bull. The benefit
according to Mr. Rosewater, cannot be
very alarming. Ho assured us last
week that all the silver and gold mines
in the U. S. only employ 57,307 persons
aud that the average earnings of all en
gaged, including superintendents and
experts, averaged only $3 per day, or
$729 per year. , Are not these people our
own American Citizens? Is not that
wealth an element of national wealth?
Is there any element of vice connected
with it? Would not an enlightened policy
prompt us to increase rather than di
minish its value? And is it any worse
to fix a legal price on silver than it is to
fix it on gold?
In conclusion, I have demonstrated in
That the demonetization of silver in
the United States was accomplished by
a secret cabal, without the knowledge
or sanction of the people or their repre
sentatives; That its demonetization was in the
interest of a class;
That increased money volume causes
prosperity, decreased money volume
Inat with & greatly varying product
of either metal indifferent periods, his
tory shows that they may be maintained
at a practically unvarying standard of
par value by tree coinage oi both at a
fixed legal ratio, the value possessed by
either metal in its scarcity being
conferred upon the other in its abun
dance, by law;
That the demonetization of silver
has caused incalculable loss to our in
That the burden of interest and
debt is increased, and the debt-paying
power oi money decreased oy diminish
ing the money volume;
-r u .. . ,i.n .
mand wealth increases by the same
means, and has resulted in a concentra
tion of wealth in few hands before un
known in tho civilited world;
That our debts have been doubled
and our power to pay them halved by
the same means;
That every contraction of our mo
ney volume has resulted in disaster;
i. bat silver is to-day tbe money oia
large majority of the people of the
lhat there is no supply of silver and
gold in excess of the world's demand
mat in no era of the world has there
ever been a surplus of metallic mo
That volume ot money, not the mar
ket price of the material of money, con
trols prices; that while the legal value of
money is nominal, its exchangeable val
ue relative to products is determined by
itsvolume relative to products;
1 hat the price oi products is of vital
importance to all debtors and determines
the margin of profit of all producers.
1 now appeal to ail men to careiutly
investigate this subject as it bears upon
their welfare and the welfare of the
people. I appeal more particularly to
the business men of our towns and
cities to investigate. A question that is
vital to the welfare of all sheuld not be
left to the decision of a numerically
small and interested class.

We have yet to see the first independ

Nebraska's Building bj a Luicoln
Mr. A W. Woods, late of the firm of
Roberts & Woods, architect of this city,
was the successful competitor in fur
nishing a plan for the Nebraska world's
fair building in Chicago. Its extreme
dimensions are 100x112 feet, not in
cluding a large veranda on the west.
The first floor is to be devoted to an
agricultural display and back of it are
the offices. An open reception room
raised eighteen inches occupies 20x40
feet of the ground space. Two stair
ways nine feet wide with large plat
forms lead to the second floor.
The second floor will bo devoted to
art and educational purposes. Each
Nebraska newspaper will be found there
on file. It will also contain a large
open court in tho canter and a recep
lion room of about 30x40 feet in size.
Also lady's private room and two ollice
raoms and toilet rooms.
Un tho west side will be a balcony
with steps leading down to a lagoon.
BalcuuitH also will be over the three
entrances on the east, north and south.
Tho style of the building is Roman
esque, with a dome in the center with
an open belfrey surmounted with a flig
staff, the top of which will be about 100
feet from the ground. The building
will be of wood artistically ornamented
with staff capitals and parts of the
cornice. The main part of the build
ing will lie painted and sanded. The
roof will be of asphalt flax roofing felt
which gave the best satisfaction at the
centennial of any material used.
The building will show off well from
all sides and will be sufficiently lighted
to show off the exhibits to tbe best ad
vantage. In all it will be a building
that will be a credit to the state forlhe
amount of money invested.

Flax Seed and its Profits to the Farmer.
Tr. la nnrhnna not irenerallv known
that the culture of flax seed in Nebraska
has largely increased during the past
tea years previous to which time but
little was grown west of the Missouri
River. The small expense of raising it
and the certainty of a crop, which comes
to market very early, makes it a aesn
able one, especially on new breaking,
where it yields from eight to ten
bushels per acre, and on older ground
about fourteen bushels per acre. The
crops of 1889 and 1800 proved profitable
to the producer, averaging about $1.25
per bushel at shipping point. Last
ear, however, proved an exception, as
the price fell below previous years and
was lower than at anytime frr t&Q "ftst
twenty years. This tas doubtless In
duced many to adopt other crops In
preference I his year, put the reduced
acreage resulting from such action will
insure higher prices for next fall and
prove remunerative to those having it
to sell. We are informed that the Lin
seed Oil Mills at Omaha have for years
loaned suitable seed to farmers, taking
security therefor, payment being made
when crop is marketed. This has
proved a great advantage to many who
have not had the ready means to buy i
the seed. Care should be takan to pro
cure good northern seed that is entirely
free from all impurities. 1 1
