IB IDEAL 8YSTIM PROPOSED
Some Comment and Criticisms, Par
ticularly as totbo Nliu of In
terest, and its Abolition.
Editor Aluakck-Indepindent:
Just at this time, when the people of
the United States are earnestly study
ing the money question, it will be well
to formulate, in a few terse sentences,
the fundamental and axiomatic laws
governing money, its nature, functions,
vses and true method of issue.
Monev. in its true sense, is not
-0 9 -
wealih, and as money possei-ses no val
ve, even though it be stamped upon
material possessing value. Although
the material upon which money is
stamped may possess, when unstamped,
s commodity value, such value, be it
more or less than the money denomina
tion stamped upon it, becomes merged
into such money denomination and will
pass, as money, for such denomination
mly. Such terms as "intrinsic, n or
inherent" value, ' God's money" or
"natural money" are meaningless and
void of sense.
Money is the creature and creation
ef law, and its essence inheres in its
debt paying or legal tender quality,
which may be stamped on any suitable
material in obedience to the fiat of law.
Reduced to its last analysis, money is a
conventional compact, or co-operative
agreement, entered into by the whole
people and given expression by the
sovereign will and power of the people,
r tat of national law. I use the term
"national law" because I am treating
f national money. Were it not for the
existing constitutional prohibition, the
several states, or counties for that mat
ter, might each have its own exclusive
money, adopted by legal compact or
conventional agreement.
Money 1b solely a medium of exchange
1 labor and commodities and a tool for
, the liquidation of debts existing be
tween individuals and the organized
community or "government." Money
"" "' " rtifiat that thn holder thereof
iV"eiformel certain labor for, or
A,lrith certain commodites to, an
,t , itfial or the community and that
ively owe to him, or hera like
,.w of labor, or commodities. Such
erulilate should be printed on the
least expensive material suitable for
tile purpose, from the fact that all val
ce inhering in such material is dead
and useless while such material la used
ae money.
Putting it in another form: legal
tender or money is an agreement upon
the part of a people, severally and col
Sactively, to receive such money in pay
ment id all debts, public and private,
and in exchange for all labor and all of
labors product. Hence, promise to pay
are self contradictory upon the.r face,
The implied contract embodied in legal
tender money being, not a "promise to
pay," but a promise to receive. The
idea) inscription upon legal tender
money would be, not "This note is a
legal tender at its face value for debts,
t eW-, etc," which is arbitrary, but
vather, "We, the people of the United
States, severally and collectively prom-
fee toieceive this bill as...
in payment of all debts, public and
private, and in exchange for all labor
and all commodities;" which is purely j
xolnatary and co-operative. j
The true money unit, or unit of ac
count, is some certain quantity of labor,
. aa the whole intent and purpese ot
money Is the exchange upon equitable
terms of one individual's labor for the
Labor ci another individual. As, how
cue?, the value of labor differs to some
extent, depeadent upon the skill re
quired, risks encountered, etc , the ef
lost made in the invention of money,
was to unite upon a common unit of ac
count by which the relative value of
all labor in all occupations and chan-
- naila ef production tight be expressed.
This rait, however, should not be real,
nc imaginary, the name by which it is
known being entirely irrelevent and
taaaaterial. Taking as a unit a cer
tain quantity of gold or silver or of any
tier commodity is robbery, pure and
ainapie, which whila it robs the masses
and enriches the few, adds nothing
whatever to the efficacy or usefulness
ef fcae money but, as a comparative
aoeasare of labor's product, or unit of
aeeoaot. It is not because gold actual
ly aaore valuable, that the unit of ac
eoaot we call one dollar, has appreciat
ed) ia purchasing power, fifty per cent
since 3873, but rather because such
unitabeiBg limited in number by the
- wpy of gold, products to be exchang
ed! have increased in volume in a much
svsater ratio than the units of account.
whieh being real must sooner or later
he actually obtained and paid over to
balaoee accounts. With an imaginary
uoio capable of being duplicated ami
-xtul&&ied in obedience to the de
aoands ef commerce and exchange we
could Mill, neverttieltbo, just as easily
assert that a da's labor in the differ
ent a various occupations is worth
IV 5 52, 2.50 or 3 units a day, and a
nw whose labor vat worth 2 units a
iaj emritl just aa easily exchange the
paper bill of the denomination of 4
aa&y received by him for two days
work, Joy the product of four days In
to? performed by the man whose' labor
ww worth only 1 unit a day. The ad-
-aoa;es gained by the adoption of an
SmugiMxrj unit would be manifold, the
ohie among them being that our vol
am el money would not, be limited by
the ridiculoHslv insufficient sup ly of
tb h U') precious meta's; while at
.vdbe sjt time we should yet have our
supply ;o3 and silver, now available
for dmm jrpoMJs. to exchange with
ethM BAiVtnsfor viluable c mmoditles.

demonetize and discard entirely the
uoe of gold and silver, and stamp (print
mutual pruniit'S to receive upon paur
bills bearing the denominational values
of the ceveral fractions and multiples
of an imaginary unit, which unit may
continue to be cal.ed a dollar, or may
be called by some other name.
Now as to the mode of issuance of
money: National money must be issu

national compact expressed in the na
tional law. National money must pos
sess 1st, safety; 2d, elasticity; 3rd, uni
formity. These are all conventional
terms, used by bankers and financiers.
They also use another term, "converti
bility," meaning by such term, facility
of conversion into gold and silver The
ideal money ot the future will provide
for no such conversion, but will be up
on the people s sacred promise to re
ceive in exchange for all commodities,
which will include gold and sliver,
(as commodities:) Even now a man
will as quickly give a twenty dollar
gold piece as a bill of like denomina
tion lor food when be is hungery, or
clothes when he is naked. But the

by which the people (government) will

Money might be paid out by the peo
ple's government upon all legal appro
priations and the entire tariff and in

the volume of money in circulation
reached a proper per capita limit, then
the graded income and succession taxes
might be adopted to furnish revenue.
Or there might be appropriated two
million dollars to each congressional
district for the improvement of the
public highways. Or the land-loan

homes of the people saved from Shy

regular normal volume of money to
such a degree that there was money

'- r COMMENTS ' .' : ;
In the above Mr. Ward has certainly
conden-ed a great deal of thought in a
few paragraphs. As to what money is
and bow it should be Issued, Mr. Ward
is substantially correct. But inasmuch
as the article purports to be a scientific
discussion," I feel like offering some
criticisms: ,
1. Mr. Ward and others who under
take to write scientifically on money,
ought to formulate one clear and com
prehensive definition of money and
stand by it. Instead of doing this Mr.
Ward defines money, first, as "a me
dium of exchange," then as "a tool for
the liquidation of debts;" next as &
certificate that the holder has perform
ed certain labor" and lastly as "an
agreement upon the part of a people,
severally acd collectively, to receive
such money in the payment of all debts."
Now all these propositions may be com
patible with one another. But they
constitute a mixture of definition and
illustration, which tends to confuse the
mind rather than elucidate the subject.
Furthermore, in his discussion Mr.
Ward does not properly distinguish be
tween what is and what should be.
2. Mr. Ward is not at all clear as to
what he means by an "imaginary
unit." In fact, we think the userof that
expression will tend not only to con
fuse the minds of those who are f avc r
able to advanced ideas concerning
money, but, to frighten away those who
are doubtful or indifferent. This is a
realistic age and the people will not
take kindly to a proposed system of
money based on an "imaginary unit."
3. But the fact that Mr. Ward's
ideas concerning money are not clear
or scientific, is most forcibly shown in
the latter part of his article where he
asserts in substance that the adoption of
the right kind of money issued by cer
tain methods will free the people from
the curse of usury. With Mr. Ward I
believe that usury is the greatest curse
of modern civilizationyand I am as anx
ious as he to find and apply a method
by which the curse may be removed.
But I deny most emphatically that Mr.
Ward has found the method.
By "usury," Mr. Ward evidently
means interest. But he seems to have
in mind that definition which we
learned from cur arithmetics when
school boys: "Interest is money paid
for the tue of money."
The term "money" is not necessary
to a scientific definition of interest.
In fact, though all borrowing and loan
ing money should bo abolished, inter
est wouW not necessarily be abolished.
The man who attends a sale and buys a
horse on time, gives his note with in
terest at ten per cent, and at the ma
turity of the tote pays both principal
and interest, does not "pay money for
the use of money," but for the use of a
horee. '
I will go further and asert that even
though debt i'self should bo abolished
interest might remain a potent factor
in the industrial world.
What is Interest? In tho production
or wealth. labor and capital are tin
ployed Part of the product Cfies to
each. Interest is that part of the pro
duct which goes to capital; interest
arisrs from the advantege which cap!
tal gives to its poseor in the produc
tion of wealth. So long as the man
who owns a team and wagon can earn
more than the man of equal capacity
who bai nothing but his labor to em
ploy, so long will interest be a fact in
the Industrial world.
The adoption of the most perfect sys
tem of money ever thought or dreamed
of will not remove the curse of usury,
Interest results from the private owner
ship of capital. It will never be abolished
until some form of nationalism or socialism
is adopted. Editok.
ELECTION FIGURES.
Three Surprises in the Election Re
turn Pointed Out by the
New York Sun.
The New York Sun, one of the great
est Democratic organs of the country
discusses the popular vote in the late
presidential election in a very interest
ing manner. It says: "Although Mr.
Cleveland obtained a pleasing majority
in the electoral colleges, he failed to
poll his party's full vote. There was
nothing of a popular uprising for him.
Judging by the usual standards of poll
tics, he was a weak rather than a
strong candidate.
The popular vote ior Mr. Cleveland
n 1-888 was 5,536,241. In 1892 it was
5,554,685 an increase of but 18,000 in
four years, with 44 states participating
in the one and but 38 in the other. In
thirteen states Mr. Cleveland received
fewer votes In 1892 than in 1888.
In California, which the democrats
carried in 1892, the gain over his vote
of 18S8was but 444, while in Indiana it
was just 1,727. In New York, though
there has been a great increase in popu
lation during the intervening four
years, with a decided trend toward de-
democracy. Mr. Cleveland's total in
1892 was 654,908 against-650, 474 for Mr.
Hill for governor in 1888. Thus 1892
appears to have been rather a year of
republican losses than of Democratic
gains compared with 1888. Therepubli
cans suffered tho larger falling off.
The figures reveal nothing in the nature
of a tidal wave anywhere.
That Is the first surprise which re
sults from a study of the official election
figures of 1892. The second surprise
rewards the investigator when he
comes to contrast the popular vote, ac
cording to states in their geographical
relations. In New England in 1888
Harrison received 445,096 votes and
Cleveland 335.030; these are the figures
of the popular vote this year:
Harrison 453,450, Cleveland 390.019, Weaver
6,7tt.
Five of the six fcew England states
were carried by Harrison.
In the Tacific and so-called silver
states, ten in 'number, these are the
figures;
Harrison, 319,420; Weaver, 203,926; Cleveland
189.639.
Still more surprising appears the out
come in the great Middle and Western
states, New York. Pennsylvania, Ohio,
New Jersey, Indiana, Michigan, Illi
nois, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Minne
sota and Wisconsin. In this populous
enterprising and richly productive re
gion, the nation's chief workshop and
storehouse, and the seat of its more di
versified industries, thete are the to
tals: .
Harrison, 3,322,290: Cleveland, 3,067,264;
Weaver, 407,877.
Whence came then, it may be asked,
the democratic majority? In the great
reserve column of the party, the demo
cracy of the south. These are the
figures in the south:
Cleveland, 1.907,762: HARMSON, 1,077,175:
WEAVKB, 422,031.
The big aggregate for Weaver (1.040-
000) is another of the surprises ot 1992
A phenomenally large number of citi
zens voted for the outside candidate,
from no particular affection for him or
his theories, but because they wished to
vote against the regular nominees and
could hit upon no better way.
lhere are ether points of interest and
surprjse which study of the election
figures of 1892 may reveal: but the
three we have now considered are the
most important; namely, the relative
failing off of Mr. Cleveland's vote in
189a compared with 1888; the important
part played by the democracy of the
south: and the astounding but not in
explicable total vote cast for the Wea
ver electors in the four states which
they carried, and in the forty which
they didn't."
lhe Sun is of course speaking from
an eastern stand-paint. It is controlled
by eastern interests and influenced by
a public opinion that is very little
afftcted by the reform movement.
Hetce its false theory concerning the
Weaver vote. The truth is that if
Weaver had received the votes of all
who believe in his theories, his total
vote would have been nearly twice what
it was. To ;people who realize the
condition of the country, who under
stand the causes for that condition, and
percieve the trend of events, there is
but one surprise in the results of the
election namely: That either Harrison
or Cleveland should have received
enough votes to elect him president cf
the United States.

COLUMBIAN STAMPS SCORED.
Senator Wolcott Objects to the New Issue
on Various Grounds.
Washington, Jan. 23. In the senate
to-day the house substitute concerning
testimony under the interstate com
merce law, was non-concurred in, a
conference asked and Messrs Wilson,
Teller and Pugh were appointed con
ferees. Among petitions on Sunday opening
of the world's fair was one signed by
Archbishop Kendrick and Vicar Gener
al Brady of the Roman Catholic church,
Bishop Tuttle of the Episcopal church
and other citizens ot St. Louis, Mo.,
favoring opening after 12 o'clock Sun
days, and another minister of the
Methodist Episcopal church, South, of
St. Louis against Sunday opening.
Mr. Wolcott called up his joint reso
lution directing the discontinuance of
the sale of Columbian postage stamps.
He was at a loss to understand, he
said, why those stamps had ever been
manufactured. He noticed that the
postmaster general suggested in his
annual report that he expected to re
ceive $500,000 dollars extra profits out
of their sale to ' stamp collectors.
That was a trick that might suit
some of the little Central American
states when they were a few thousand
dollars "shy," but the United States
was too big a country to unload a cruel
and unusual stamp upon stamp col
lectors. Railroad mail clerks com
plained that the one cent Columbian
stamp was so like the regis
tration stamp that constant mis
takes were being made by them and
he had a letter from a physician who
said that if the sale of those stamps
were stopped the stamps might be
used for chest protectors. He asked
unanimous consent that the joint
resolution be read a third time and
passed. But objection was made and
it was laid over.
No Plnkerton Legislation Needed.
Washington, Jan. 23. The sub-committee
on the Pinkerton system will
report to the full judiciary committee
of the house next Tuesday. The report
will show that there is an agreement
on the facts and that members are near
ly in accord that no legislation on the
part of congress is called for as the re
sult of the investigation. Mr. Brod
erick and Mr. Boatner of Louisiana are
of the opinion that a law might per
haps be framed which would be effect
ual and also constitutional, but will
not press the matter.

Editor Alliance-Independent:
The fact that there will not be another
presidential election for four years is
no reason why farmers and laborers
should lose interest In the great indus
trail questions that formed the only true
issue in the last campaign. The work
of education and reform should be pro
secuted just as vigorously now as dur
ing the heat of tho campaign. There
are reasons why those who desire to
see the principles advocated by the
People's party enacted into laws.
siTould be more in earnest, more act
ive and more aggressive than ever.
Party prejudice that warps the judg
ment and blinds the eyes of the victor,
does Dot run so high now as just before
a presidential election. Men who
would not listen to reason or believe
statements, no matter how well sub
stantiated, during ths heat of the con
test have cooled down and now have
more time to consider propositions of
fact that would have been hooted
at a few months ago, not because tbey
were unworthy of consideration, but
because they were so blinded by preju
dice. There are also many young men
who have as yet formed no well-ground
ed political belief, and who, expecting
to cast their first ballot in 1896, are now
looking around to see with what party
they will identify themselves. They
are not biased by preconceived opin-
ions, or deceived by oily tcngued poli
ticians. Before they become the prey
of the latter, it should be regarded as
the duty of the populist to see. them,
talk with them upon the mighty issues
advecated by his party; prove to him
by reciting facts of today and history
of the past, that our country is passing
through a terrible crisis, the outcome
of which will be decided for the weal
cr woe oi our nation in the next presi
dential campaign.
Now is the time to do missinary work
among our lenow iaDorers wco are
wandering in a labyrinlh of political
prejudice, ignorance and erroneous
ideas on political economy. As before
stated tbey will be more likely to hear
what you say to them than at any other
time. Go to them with literature and
statistics; talk to them conservatively
and from the standpoint of mutual in
terest. With all the fscts at the com
mand of the populist, a campaign of ed
ucation sytematically cemmenced now
will prove irresistible in its results in
'96. No man with patriotic instincts
can afford to Jay down his arms and
cease a fight that has keen so nobly
begun. The demands for reform are
too pressing the situation too critical.
Every man whose eyes have been open
to see the startling condition of the la
boring classes, and the inevitable ruin
that stares us all in the face unless our
nation be rescued from the vampires
who are sucking its life blocd, is little
less than a traitor if be deserts now, is
hardly a patriot if he fails to utilize all
possible agencies consistent with honor
to convince others of the truth of our
assertions, and show the utter hopeless
of improving our condition under the
regime of either old party. More than
a million men voted the democratic
ticket last fall, silently resolving to
give them one more chance. The re
lief tbey wanted will not come; when
convinced of this they will turn their
backs upon the two old porties forever.
The populift should see that they do it.
Keep constantly upon their minds the
failure of the incoming administration
to accomplish that which it is expected
and has promised to do.
Respectfully,
J. W. Sherwood.
