Ws a raise la the commodities reocrally,
tfcattsta say, a diminution of the purchasing
power of gold, would be to our disadvantage.
It would be difficult to find in all
literature emanating from honorable
geatlemcn a more cruel and selfish
exMtriaeof legislative policy than this
outsort nation of the rights and Interests
of all the industrial classes, their own
included, ta the extortionate demands
of great creditors than is thus delib
erately made by this royal commission.
How raia is the hope that England or
say other great European country
whom saaaetary policy is dictated and
osMtroited by great creditors will join
us la a policy that will raise prices gen
erally. For my own part, 1 thank God
that I live in a country whore the people
riQ dictate their own monetary policy.
JaqjeiMia a rapidly growing Intelli
gence on iVia subject which will make
it lotBowiible much longer, by tho sanc
timonious claim of singular "honesty"
la aiagle-standard money, to impose
vpna the people. If anything oan
arouse the scornful Indignation of a
debt-oppressed people it is the spectacle
of a ptatocrat, who never In all his life
ooatribated a dollar to the wealth of the
ooaatry, but whose pockets are
ptetaaric with the spoil of that crown
ing epetiattoa of the century, rolling
Us psoas eyes, with uplifted hands, pro
testing against the "dishonesty" of
those who would pay by a different
standard than the one foisted upon the
-country by that "holy conclave" in
1833, or who would lay sacrilegious
hands upon that "honest" legislation.
So, ttiew hypocrites understand as

money, at least in part, to a normal
relation to goods. This Is too plain to
require argument. They are fully
suran that the gold standard will, in
ecosMaie effect, become a very differ
ent Standard from what it Is under the
oresent Mlksr. and that that difference
wvM too re to the advantage of those
classes who have no way to buy money
but by the products of their labor. The
xwrtatoty that the restoration ef silver
will asaterlally lessen the value or pur
chasing power of gold, and that It will
be easier for the farmer to pay gold
debt, is the real occasion of all this
outcry from the money centers against
Jar adversaries do not have the hardl
hood to deny that silver coin is lawful
paymeut. They pretend, however, that
taenia amoral obligaitos upon con
5ss$s stake it equal to the "best
snoaey." - Upon what principle that
claim is oased it is difficult to discover.
I doubt if anv contract ever made speo
itied "beat dollars." The theory of
doty to maintain parity between the
eoiaa comports as well with bringing
gold down to silver as carrying sliver
n to srold. i But the truth is no such
, duty exists. It is a pretense, born of
aa aoaerupuious greed, still, assum
Ids that there will be a commercial
disparity between the two coins under
freecoimure we are driven to the cen
aaieratioB of which one of the two will
bathe more equitable instrument of
appraisement, having regard to the
interest and rights of both debtor and
creditor, and the beneficiaries of all
eenaoenic intercourse in the future.
trUs question is not to be so cheaply
ad superficially settled as by saying
that tho dollar that "has one hundred
cents is it" is the true one. In such
cuateotion it is illegitimate to subtujt
Use claim of one of the contestants to
the aatpirage ot the other. Upon the
neftvon of which metal is the better
txandara we 'must first settle upon
what constitutes the chief excellence in
a mmey standard and then see which
metal has conformed most nearly to
taut requirement. We have no difli
ib getting a full admission that con
stancy in value is the prime requisite in
ja standard. That is a threadbare com-
SBoaplace in monetary discussion. The
trouble begins when we ask jus! what
that admission means. They assert
uboo, goa is more constant because tho
tia is always at a commercial par
ity with the coin. That shallowness
uatiaies most of these eminent finan
. JBot even a kindergarten intelligence
goes deeper than that, and knows that
suck a pa- ity is the result of free coin
age of gold, and that silver will behave
the sane way with an open mint to it.
Tbe value of a doJiar is to be e-otten at
taw same way as we find tke value of
everything else. Value is commercial
equivalence. It is the second term iu
swap. You cannot find the value of
si dollar till you swap it for something
that is not money. The same market
report which give the prices of all
veaoiDM inings give the value or pur
chasing power of money If these re
ports show tha since 1873 the general
range of prices in gold-standard coun
tries baa fallen one-third, then they
anew an increase in the value of
gaUL It is familiar information and a
painial experience in all the productive
industries, that In the gold standard
eoesurioa there has been such a fU of
I'ae fluctuation in the value of gold
in. tbe period between 1800 and 1880
m vested by a composite commodity
wait nsade a p of 800 leading articles, as
4 : . I i r, , ii
iqiiHiaui n iu me vongresswnai ac
cord of April 15. 1886. ranged over 61
, wane ue silver dollar, at its
hnllioa value, fluctuated but SI points.
No one has tier tried to controvert the
statement that the price range ia silver
standard countries has been more con
stant sinre 187 than when prices have
been made la gold. Ho one has ever
attempted to disprove our claim of su
periority of silver In repect to con
stancy in value. Of course, wbea the
two metals were linked together by
bimetallic legislation, as always until
183, their fluctuations, though consid
erable, ran on parallel lines. Since
then gold, let loose from its ancient
moorings to silver, has run riot in
r)n tliictP&tinn, and has been a disas
trous money standard.
So that if free coinage fails te restore
gold to iu old parity with silver, and
conforms our money to silver only, we
are still, by the experience of all the
past, npon a better and more constant
valuing metal. If gold goes to a prem
ium, which only those who are ignorant
of the forces that control value will
affirm, then will that premium make
manifest to the dullest intellect what all
students have all along confirmed,
name'y. that the act of 1873 foisted
upon us a dollar which has extorted
from Industry one-third too much of
every product measured out by it.
This conclusion is verifiable, and has
been over and over again verified by
the severest melhods known to stu
dents of economics, and I need not
enter upon any detailed demonstration
of it here.
The restoration of silver is therefore
demanded upon every theory of money
that has ever been propounded by any
responsible writer. It is demanded, also
upon tbe ground that the act o: I8d was
uncalled for, clandestine, fraudulent,
and designedly against the interest of
this country, and against the Interest of
the producing classes tbe world over.
Whether that act caused gold to rise
over silver about SO per cent, as It has
since that date, or whether that rise was
in obedience to forces beyond legislative
control, in either case the act was the
guilty causa of the rUe of money in this
country,". .the fall of prices. That act
closed the mint to slver, when it was
coming for coiuage into standard dollars
at a rats never before equaled in the his
tory of our mint.
Our monetary condition at that time
was a loud cail for every one of them,
we have decreed coin resumption. That
closure compelled all our money to fol
low the fortunes of gold, forbade it re
maining upon the silver standard,
adding enormously to the burden ot
debt, and doing it in the most cruel
manner, for it struck down the profits
of all tbe leading industries. When we
remonstrate against that legislation and
demand its repeal, all tho have to say
Is, "Well, that is the way it is; our mo
ney is on a tingle gold standard and sil
ver has been discarded." That is, they
simply appeal to the existing fact and
situation as established by that legisla
tion. We reply that we arraign that
legislation and all tho maladjustments
tbat it has caused.
In very truth you aitlrm that, that is
the way it is, but we affirm so it ought
not to be, and so it shall not continue to
be if we can help it. Had the mint re
mained open to silver all this time un
der the old law of a double standard,
our money could never have acquired
any greater purchasing power than goes
with 4121 grains of standard silver, and
prloei made in that money could never
have so fallen.

tell you that no mutual company could
stand the loss of the recent storm, but if
farmers would oouslder that stock com
panies have no money to pay losses with
except that which has been collected
from policy holders they will have the
problem solved tbat seems to be so puz
zling to the slick tongued chaps who are
trying to make a living by gulling the
farmers. I have Just received word from
tbe secretary of the Iowa Tornado assocl
atloo who tells me that his company has
$14,200,000 worth of property insured.
That company was organized Jan. 1885,
with fees as follows: Membership fee
$1; survey fee fl and ten cenrs per hun
dred dollars insured, or $3 for the first
$1,000 and 1 for each additional $1,000.
Sluce the company was organized it has
made two assessments of fifty cents per
$1,000 each time, snd at this time has
about $3,000 on baud to pay losses. The
secretary tells me that he received 435
applications In march ol this year, which
is an Increase of about 200 over March,
1891. By this you can see that the older

any of you who want insurance will

sure your own property. The fees are
the same as the Iowa company, but no
fees need be paid until we are ready to

until we have $150,000 worth of property
Insured. If each one who has received
applications will send us $1,000 we would
be able to put the company on its feet by
May 1st, but send all you possibly can for
some one may not send his $1,000. 1
must ure you to comply with this re
quest at once, because it is a duty to
yourselves and vour fellow farmers.
We should have $250,000 by May 1st,
but when we get $i50,000 worth of insur

The Eye and Ear
Are two most delicate and complicat
ed organs; without the eye we could
not guide our footsteps nor observe
the beauties of nature; without the ear
we could not hear the voices of our
friends nor enjoy the sweet sounds of
music. No one is so helpless as the
blind and more deserving of pity than
the deaf. Many persons lose sight or
hearing by neglect, which timely aid
might prevent. Among the specialists
who treat these organs none have been
more successful than Dr. Dennis whose
offlceis is over the First National Bank
Lincoln. Mr. C. M. Marshall who has
been in the employ of the big furniture
dealers, Gruetter & Co. was deaf in one
ear from which was a constant offensive
discbarge for twenty-five years. The
Dr. cured it entirely in oue month. Mr.
