Explains the Free Coinage
BKATU1CE, Neb, July 20, ISDN,
Jay Burrows, Esq., Scc'y'Nob. Bi-mc
tallio League, Lincoln, Neb;
My Dear Sir: I duly appreciate,
and warmly thank tho bimetallic
lcaguo lor their very courteous invita
tion, so kindly conveyed to mo by
yourself, "to speak in favor of bimet
allism" in Lincoln Saturday evening,
I very much regret that busincsri
engagements render impossible my
participation in tho discussion ap
pointed for the date you indicate, but
if later on the proper "timo and
chance" shall happen to jio, it will be
a pleasure to meet with tho league,
Tho exact truth is my private affairs,
almost wholly neglected during my
last six years of scrvico in tho senate,
have pressed upon nic so heavily that
T have had no heart, nor mind, nor
timo sinoo my release for anything ex
cept tho work of bringing order out
of the chaos into which they had
drifted whils I was engrossed in look
ing after the businsss of others and
permitting my own to bo laid over to
the more sonvenifint season which by
the kindness and consideration of my
constituents was arranged for no a few
I have not, therefore, watched the
courso of tho bimctallio league, but
think I havo a fairly correct idea of
tho purposo and aim, if not of tho full
scopo of its endeavor.
As I understand it, the league is in
no senso a political organization. In
tho list of its memberships I find the
names of honored citizens of tho state
who have long been, and still aro
prominently connected with tho dif
ferent political organizations. As I
am informed, they havo simply corao
together n's republicans, democrats
and independents, for a concerted
movement along strictly non-partisan
lines, to develop and strengthen tho
sentiment found in all partios at this
time favorablo to bi-mctallism.
Very likely I may not agrco with
some of you as to tho causes and in
strumentalities to which tho demona
tization of silver is properly charge
able. Wo .may also differ as to tbo
best method to bo employed for the
permanent rouauuiuuon oi snvor as a
money of commerce, a coin eurrency
for local and individual exchanges, a
fiduciary money with such relation to
gold as will best qualify it always und
evcrywhoro to do its full sbaro to
maintain tho colossal business fabric
of tho world whoso foundations rest
upon tho farthest shoro of tho remot
est sc'a; whoso superstructure covers
all creative naturo, and embraces all
tho sphorcs of human activity.
But we will all agreo that silver-
recognized as a truo measurement of
values from tho timo when eommorco
ceased to bo only anothor namo for
piracy shall not now with our con
sent bo driven out Ly a now sort of
piraoy in tho quiso of financial, oom
mereial, and other trusts and combi
nations formed by tho strong to rob
tho weak of their opportunities, and
deprivo them of tho required tools
for tlo betterment of their condition.
It cantoot bo denied that an undue
enhancement of the vajuo of gold in
its relation to all 'commodities and
things for which it has been a .meas
urement of value has boen in progress
for some timo. And now a concerted
effort on tho part of a powerful ele
ment in this country, under tho inspi
ration of the mono-motalist monoy
ohangcrs of Europe, is icinc niado
, still further to apprcciato its vnluo by
the practical elimination of silver
from our curreuoy,
Neb., Friday, August
Tho coin monoy of tho world is less
than $3,000,000,000, mado up of
about equal parts of gold nnd silver; a
sum which, if every dollar of tho sil
ver could bo given tho samo purchas
ing power as gold, would bo barely
adequate for tho world's uses. But
Bilvor was long since driven out as
money of commerce. It was practi
cally expelled from all fiduciary uses
by most of tho great commercial na
tions oi Europe long atjo; and it is
now proposed by tho unqualified re
peal of tho Sherman aot to withdraw
all statutory recognition of it as a coin
money by our own government. This
leaves thorcforc, less than 14,000,000,
000 of gold currency as a coin money
basis to maintain tho business and tho
credits of the whole world, tho vol
ume of which is so vast as to be al
most boyond tho ability of tho human
mind to measure or to comprehend.
But theso are not all' tho require
ments of our day and generation.
Gpld in tho treasuries of the great na
tions of Europo is as noocssary a war
equipment for tho preservation of tho
balanio of powor among them as
standing armies along their frontiers,
or as cannon shot and shell, and other
munitions in their forts and arsenals.
And so tho representatives of those
(governments everywhere havo helped
to swell tho swarming multitude
which for years has been chasing up
and down tho earth in pursuit of gold
all alike realizing that wbon the
pressure from tho increased Remand
always incident to a general loss of
confidenco comes, as has recently
been seen, the supply is suddenly
found to bo wholly inadequate to meet
it, and universal bankruptcy and dis
tress aro Buro to follow.
And thus we are confronted by tho
anomoly, that whilo thcro has boen a
most phenomenal incrcaso in tho re
quirements for coin money, the mono
mctallist money owners of Europo
havo been using their great power and
influence to drivo out and destroy one
half tho world's storo of such monoy,
ana at tno samo -time place insur
mountable barriers against its restor
ation. They havo insisted that gold pro
duction was incroiScd boyond the de
mand tor its uso in tne world s our-
rcney, and yet tho absorption, accord
ing to calculations based on Boethecr's
figures, endorsod by Boissevant, in
Germany, tho Scandinavian kingdom,
tho United States and Italy, alone,
from 1870 to 18G5 exceeded tho pro
duction for that period by 1200,000,
000, "about ono-sixtcenth of tbo total
amount of gold money which toward
the end of that period had bcon dis
tributed in Europe, tho United States
and Australia." During tbo same
poriod it is also shown that thore was
uot only no incrcaso in tho supply of
gold from produotion in other coun
tries, but almost certainly a loss com
Sinoo 1885 thcro has boen an enor
mously increased absorption particu
larly in Europoan countries in excess
of produotion, much of which latterly
has bcon at tho cxponso of the United
States; and yet every country in the
world is constantly struggling to keep
what it has, and acqtiiro more, as if
its life depended on tho Buocess of its
efforts. Everybody knows that there
is not enough to "go round," and
everybody except tho single standard
money and oredit owners admits that
it ought if possiblo to bo' largoly sup
plemented by something elso. But
many who believe this doubt if any
thing equally as pood .can be found,
whilo the mono-mctallist is determ
ined that nothing shall be found, and
is dilligcntly employing every means
of which ho is possessed to prevent it,
the Price of The Chief.
He grossly exaggerates tho amount
of silver production. In London he
represents that our bonds will bo paid
in silver. Perhaps ho buys a few and
returns them to this country to bo
sold, with tho statement that English
capitalists like himself do not liko to
hold them, or any other American so
eurit'os, ant'eipating their payment in
silver, which ho and his kind have
helped to depreoiate by misrepresen
tations. Thus ho helps to depress the
market by hit personal examplo in
London and Now York. Ho docs
moro. His sale, and tbo reasons for
it, are generally quoted on tho Now
York Stook Exchange and afterwards
in tho eommeroial newspapors and
used as an argument to convinoo tho
pcoplo of this country that bi-metat.
lism must not bo thought of that tho
Sherman act must bo wiped out from
top to bottom, whioh would leave not
a word or syllablo of law in our statute
books in recognition of silver. If by
his own unaided aot he could restore
the parity in aolual markotvaluo be
tween the gold and silver dollar, ht
would not do it. It is to his interest
to preyont an increase in tho money
supply, and at the same time stimulate
the demand, thus appreciating its val
ue, and increasing his revenuo tbore
from correspondingly, Thcro are
thousands of mono motallists in Eu
rope who are working on theso lines,
and there aro thousands of men in
this country who believe in bi-mctal-
ism, but oppose all legislation looking
in that direction because of the dread-

Mr. Clevclamd was eleotcd president

radical departures, and naturally pro
duced somo apprehension and dis
quiet in business circles, as the prom
ise of an entire chango of polioy in
volving great business interests al
ways does, But this disquiet thus
originating was all charged to. tho
Sherman act. A financial eyolone
struck Australia, whoso business has
always boen conduoted squarely and
sxolusively under the gold standard.
All of its great banks failed, and uni
versal bankruptcy followed, entailing
enormous losses upon capitalists of
England and Scotland as well as Aus

country as well as Europe. This dis

against tho Sherman aot.
