ing a declaration of independence
which set forth their principles and
recommended that nil parties and
organizations opposed to the gold
atundurd unito in supporting Senator
Teller for President. A strong effort
is being mado to got delegates from
silver states who did not withdrew
from tho convention to sign 'this
It is tlio joint belief of all who havo
been consulted from tho far West that
there will not bo a successful Repub
lican elector in the West outside of
Iowa and possibly Minnesota. They
further believe that there will not bo
a Republican elected South of tho
Potomac and the Ohio rivers. A mem
ber of tho Montana delegation butr-
gested that tho ibattle ground would
be in Illinois and Indiana, and that
Illinois., Indiana, Iowa. Minnesota,
Michigan, West Virginia, Maryland,
Delawurc, New Jersey and Connecti
cut were doubtful states and tho Re
publican party would have to carry
nil of them in order to succeed.
There have been conferences with
leading representatives of the Popu
lists uud of the Bimetallic leatruo to
induce them to work for tho indorse
ment of Teller, and have suchu strong
fus'on against the gold standard as to
imh. tho Democratic national con
ventlci also to indorse Toller as the
fusion cand.date for President, They
also conferred with ox-Governor Fran
cis of Missouri and Democratic free
bllvcr advocates, and were invited to
send representatives to tho Demo
cratic nntioual convention at Chicago
next month to confer with tho party.
The silver men say that Senator
Teller is the man in their opinion on
whom all tho anti-gold men could
unite, but thai they are willing to co
operate wherever they can consist
ently do so to defeat the gold stand
ard, and tlioy aro not scckincr to press
Senator Teller so much as they are to
secure relief from the power" of tho
gold men.
They have issued the following ad
dress: Tl.KA TO THK I'EOPl.K.
"To tho People of the United States:
Obeying tho call of duty and justified
by the common citizenship of this re
public, we address this communica
tion to the people and the forthcom
ing conventions of tho United States.
In doing so wo claim no authority or
right other than that which belongs
to every man to express personal con
victions; but wo respectfully solicit
the co-oporatlon of all who bolievo
that the time has come for a return
to the simpler uud more direct method
of naming men for national service
than has obtained in recent years.
"Political party organization is
necessary, becauso without it the indi
vidual voter is dumb, but the party is
only tho means, nutthecntL It is tho
voice and not the sense. As'tlie world
advances in this wonderful epoch of
intellectual development and physical
improvement, there Is constant re
quirement for better things. The in
dividual feels that requirement and
heeds it, or falls in life's endeavors.
Parties must also obey the same law.
It follows, therefore, that tho moment
a party shall choose to stand still or
rotrogress, it is also inctliclcnt to
nehiove tho end to which tho peoplo
aro necessarily destined. There is no
sanctity in more party name, and tho
man: or necay is set on individual
strength in a nation when tho absolute
rule of political organization coerces
men from tho truth for the sako of ex
pediency and establishes insincere
submission to partisan rule for the
sake of power.
"Recognizing tho value and the
splendid achievements of political par
ties in this country, as elsewhere, wo
ure yet constrained to believe that for
more than twenty years no one ot
them bus Leon entirely sufficient for
the needs of tho people. The groat
trend to better tilings resting In the
heart and purpose of all men, has
been stayed during tho latter part of
this generation by the failure of par
ties to express in their achievements
the highest hope and aspiration of tho
mass of the people who constitute tho
parties. And there hos been growiug
in this country swelling with each
recurrence of national election a
great mass of independent thinkers
and voters, which failing within itself
to control, has gravitated between tho
two great parties. Since 1 872 (except
ing possibly tho election of ISTu), the
pendulum has swung from side to side
with each four years. In 18?2 the Re
publican party elected the President;
in 1870 the Democracy claimed the
election; in 1880 'ho Republican party
elected; in 1884 the Democrats elected;
in 1388 the Republicans elected; in 1b02
the Democrats elected; in 189(5 (until
within a few weeks) it has been con
ceded that tho Republicans would
"What has been tho causo of this
mighty oscillation of a mass which
this year has probibly obtained con
trolling proportions? Every man can
answer to himself. If he has boon an
observer, if he has had interests that
wcro aiTcctod; if ho has felt a hope to
see greater justice done and has tccn
that hope blnstod; If ho knows that
tho gcnoral dissatisfaction has nrisott
from the fact that party promises
mado wore broken to tho pooplo by
party performances, ho knows that
soon as the election was over and suc
cessful candulatas installed they be
camo tho servitors of tho party mid
tho advocates of a narrow mid non
progressive policy within which alono
there seemed to bo an nssurauco of
selfish safety and partlsau approval.
"During nil this period wo havo
lacked a great constructive adminis
tration. No now social truth hns
been put forward In an eiTectlvo way.
While- In all tho departments of physi
cal llfo there havo been developments
and achievements of ease and comfort
to the favored of mankind. In tho still
greater and. moro Important domain
of social reform, wo havo stood still
or retrogressed. It is not that the
peoplo havo not felt tho stirrings of
determination, that this inaction has
undUrcd, but bocauso of tho rule of
tho party which has largely controlled
men In and out of office. It has be
come a Bourco of reproach to any man
that ho should daro to renounce al
legiance to organization. Men havo
bcon expoctcd to submit their views
to tho dictation of conventions, al
though it Is common knowledgo that
conventions havo bcon swayed to
views nnd declarations not tho most
approved by tho mass of tho peoplo
nor progressive for tholr welfare.
"If tho voices which have soundod
to us from overy state in this Union
aro an indication of tho real feeling,
tills venr is tho appointed time for tho
peoplo to assert themselves, through
such mediums ns may glvo best prom
ise of tho achievement of justice. Rut
whether wo aro mistaken or not con
cerning tho general sentiment in tho
United States, wo havo not mistaken
our own duty in withdrawing from
tho Republican convention, feeling
that it Is hotter to bo right and with
tho minority in apparent defeat than
to bo wrong with the majority in ap
parent triumph.
"Wo hold that In tho great work ot
social evolution in this country mon
etary reform stands as the first requis
ite. No policy, however promising of
good results, can tako its placo. Con
tinuation during tho next four years
upon tho present- financial system will
bring down upon tho American peo
ple that cloud of impending ovil, to
avcit which should bo tho first thought
of statesmen nuu tho first prayer of
patriots. Our very institutions aro
at stake. To-day, with a rapidly in
creasing population, with widely
swelling demands, tho basis of our
money is relatively contracting and
the peoplo aro passing into a servi
tude all tho moro dangerous becauso
it is not physically apparent. The
nutlon itself, as to other nations,
is losing the sturdy courage which
could make it defiant in tho faco of in
justice and internal wrong. From the
farmer and tho tradesman to tho gov
ernment there is apparent the same
shrinkage from giving offense, lest the
vengeance of some offended financial
power should descend The business
man submits some portion of his judg
ment and his will, und tho nation sub
mits some portion of its international
right, lest some mighty foreign cred
itor shall make destructive demands.
Where will all this cud if tho peoplo
shall decline to assert themselves?
Where will It end if the older parties
in their determination to maintain
themselves in power for power's bake
alono shall refuse to recognize the
right and tho hope of humanity.
"This country cannot much longer
exist f rco and independent against all
tho rest of tho world, nor can its peo
ple much longer bo frro in tho noblest
sense of tho term if tho United States,
a debtor nation, shall follow a policy
dictated by creditor nations. Wo pro
duce all of the necessaries of life.
Other nations consume our products.
In tho race for existence it is a con
stant strugglo between producer und
consumer. Our present system of
money deliberately submits to tho do
sire and tho profit of creditor nations,
leaving us in tho muss and as individ
uals, a prey to tho money-gathering
and tho deadly cheapening of the
old warld. As the debt to creditors
abroad increases on the masses of tho
nation, the price of human production
on tho farm nnd in the workshop is
decreased with appalling rapidity,
exacting moro and moro from our citi
zens to meet tho given demand uud
holding over their heads a throat of
tho day when confiscation to meet
tholr obligations will leavo them bare
and defenseless.
"Tho only remedy Is tostop falling
prices, tho deadliest curse of national
life. Prices will never ceaso falling
under the single gold standard. Iho
restoration of bimetallism by this
country will double the basis of our
money system In timo it will double
tho stock of primary monoy of tho
world will stop falling prices and
will steadily olevato thorn until they
will regain their normal relation to
tho volume of debts uud credits in
the world, liimetallism will help to
bring about tho great hope of every
social reformer, overy believer in the
advancement of the race who realizes
that the instability of prices has been
his deadly foe of our toilers and tho
servant of tho foreign interest gath
erer, liimetallism will help .to bring
about the time when a certain ex
penditure of human toil will procure
a certain finuueial result.
Who among tho great masses of our
pooplo in tho United Stutes but feels
that his lot would be better, his aspir
tion take new wings if ho could know
in the performance of Ins labor what
would be the price of his product? Is
not this purpose worth the attention
of the people as individuals, and
worth the attention of political con
ventions yet to bu held in this year
180(1? Is not tliis so great an end that
ull who believe in the possibility of 'at
taining it by the means proposed can
yjeld something of their partisanship
both in conventions and at tho polls?
It is in the hope that tho masses and
the remaining conventions will have
the courage and tho generosity to
unito for this purpose that wo have
dared to offer our views to tho peoplo
of tho United States, and because in
the past there has lacked a rallying
point for tho masses who hold as wo
do to this belief, wo venture to act,
trusting that it will be.recclved in the
same spirl of eonrllliUton, concession
ami hopo with which wo put it forth.
"Wo havo endeavored in a plain
way to sot the matter hoforo tho oyos
of our fellow citizens. Wo invoke
tho union of all utoii nnd nil parties
who bolievo that tho timo has como
for tho triumph of justice. It is nu
hour when tho peoplo may speak for
themselves ns individuals and through
conventions yet to bo held. It Is tho
right of every citizen to indicate his
"With this in view, wo offer to tho
forthcoming conventions nnd to tho
people the linmo of a man for tho
prosldoncy of tho United States whoso

"It is not merely ns tho exponent of
monetary reform that wo present

ho has waged a mighty war for tho
rcstorrtlon of tho money of tho con

while tho party's candidate is all right,
"tho platform on tho only important
