Judgo C. R. Scott, of Omaha,
wlio tintil tWun- American con ven
ation was n republican whom the
tpuriy delighted to hpuor, and who
renounced liia allegiance to tho
jmrty borne weeks ago insuch strong
terms and unanswerable logic,
'made a speech last week at Kear
ney, tho occasion boing a raoustor
silver' ratification meotiug. Tho
'following burning words are ox
iraets from tho Bpoeoh:'
' "Tho people are in no mood to
Jisten to or read deceptive phrases,
'br gilded falshopds, or plated false
pretenses, or meaningless plati
tudes about an honest 'dollar for
an honest day's work, when mil
lions of our peoplo are houseless,
homeless, friendless, breatllcss, out
'pl work, out of credit, out of mon
'by, out of heart and out of hope,
because of that un-Amcrieun heresy
the gold standard.
The American Lnzarus has been
pating tho crumbs that li avo fallen
jrom the. rich ' man's table ever
;binco 1873, and now tho question
-must bo settled whether American
frcomen under the eonhtihitinn mul
flecluratio of independence may eat
the bread earned by the sweat of
their faces or continue longer to
linger at tho gate of tho Dives of
Wall street, Now York, and Lom
bard stoot London, (cheers.)
"The McKinloy tariff is ,not in
discussion. Tho leading' Wall
'street journals, voicing Great
Britain's demands, have declared
against the re-enactment of that
law. ' So has Mark Hanno. The
so-called republican convention at
'St Louis did jjot demaud its ro-en-uctment,
but said: Wo aro not
-plodged to any particul ar schedules
jTho question of rates is. a practical
-questi6n to bo governed by tho
couditipnof tho timo and of tho
' "The so-called republican
pdrty has gone back on tho
McKinloy protective tariff. Not
mo of Jus prominent supporters
dares to go upon tho stump and
ilejlaro that the party is in favor

Sunatoi-Thuwton to publicly de -

ony other state, in favor of its rc
oiiactment. It tfould offend Great
Britain'tho silent partner in tho
un-American combine, and it will
not bo done. (Clapping of hands)
"Abraham Lincoln, in delivering
to Mr. Colfax a mossngo to tho
wostorn minors and initio owners,
said: I am gofng to encourage
(linm in nvurir tvnv nrwaililn
I intend to point them to tho gold

I shall promote their interests to
tho utmost of in' ability, because
their prosperity is tho prosperity
of tho nation and wo shall provo it
in a very fo .v years that we arc the
treasury of tho world.'
Was Abraham' Lincoln nfllictod
with tho 'silvor craze'? (Applause)
"Daniel Webster, tho great con
stitutional lawyor and statesman,
said: I am clearly of tho opinion
thot neither congress nor any
other authority can ' legally
demonetize either gold or silvor.
Tho command to congress is to
coin monoy, not to destroy it, to
create legal louder money for the
use of tho peoplo, and tho grant of
authority to create monoy caunot
be construed to mean authority to
"Was Daniel Wobstor a 'silver
crank?' Was ho in favor of a
'dishonest dollar?, (Prolonged
Eight years ago tho republican
party, in tho Chicago convention,
declared in favor of biinotalism
and against tho gold smudard in
theso words: "Tho republican
party are in favor of tho use of
both gold and mlvor as money ami
condemns tho policy of tho demo
cratic administration in its efforts
to demonetize Bilver."
"That is just what the frco silver
republicans are advocating-to day,
and if thoy aro 'silver cranks then
the republican party in 1888 was a
'silver crank.' Cheers and a Voice
"13y tho law of tho party in 1888
and 1892 tho republican party
without first consulting' Europe or
telegraphing J, Piorpont Morgan
for his consont, declared that .tho
American people, not crowned
head of Europe, or Wall street
millionaires, from tradition and
interest, favor bimntalism, and
bocintso of such tradition and in
terest of tho American people, tho
republican party demanded the
use of both gold and silvor as
"In tho face of tho pronounced
fact that because tho American
peoplo by tradition and intorest,
favor bimetalism. tho republican
party, in 1892, demanded tho 'use
of both gold and silver, as stand
ard money, is it not a littlo strango
that that samo party, 'in 1SDG, at
crt. Jbouis, snouui adopt what it
had denounced in 1S8S, and in
open defianco of tho tradition and
intorest of tho American peoplo m
bimetalism, that was so forcefully
evidenced in 1892, should adopt
tho following travesty upon public
justice: '"Wo are unalterably op

tho credit of our country. Wo
aro therefore opposed to free coin
ago of silvor except by interna
tional agreement with tho leading
commercial nations of tho world,
which we pledge oursolvcs to
prpmoto, and until such an agree
ment can bo obtained tho existing
gold standard must be preserved.'
"And then after tho most glar

"I ciiargo tho fact to be that
that un-American and treason
bcoding plank, was, before its
adoption, telegraphed to J. Pior
pont Alorgun, with tho request
that he dctormino whether it was
satisfactory to Wall streot, and
upon receiving answer that it was
ontirely satisfactory to thq money
power, it was spiked to tho St.
Louis platform and not before
"Why were not tho American
peoplo who from 'tradition and in
terest favor bunotalisin,' telegraph
ed for thoir approval of that Wall
street and Rothschild plank? If
thoy had been tho answer would
havo come back in such thunder
tones that it would havo disturbed
Balfour's government on" tho
Thames, and brought an echo of
approval from tho graves of Lin
coln, Blaine and Garfield. Wall
street had millions for tho campaign
corruption fund, tho people had
nono. The British lion must be
appeased becauso it owned Wall
street. Tho lion was placated and
the American people hiimblfid.
Tho London Times said of that
plank: 'If tho news that Mr.
Hanna has accepted Senator
Lodgo's resolution is true, the bat
tle for gold has been won, and
a great victory has boon won.'
"No wonder the English pluto
crats are intensely interested in
that plank, for.thoy declare: If tho
United States establishes bimetal
ism, England will' loso one-half
her trado with the other nations of
the world.' They can afford to
keep their vultures' anchored con
veniently near Mark Hanna's field
of opirations to meot tho emergen

lish author says in combatting tho
gold standard heresy: 'Land and
capital aro despoiled and enter
prise decaying, that its creditors
may grow fat on idleness upon
tho unearned increment of gold.

statesman, in 1883 said. Tho fall

"Bearing upon this great ques
tion, I read from tho warning of
Abraham Lincoln to his people
iu his message to congress In lSu'l:
There is quo point to which T ask
attention. It is the effort to" place
capital a upon an equal footing
with, if not above, labor in the
structure of the government, I bid
the laboring peoplo beware of sur
rendering a power which they al
ready possess, and which, if sur
render, will surely be used to close
tho door of advancement to such
as they, and fix new disabilities

and will bring wreck and ruin to
this government, why did tho St.

that plank which tho banks said
was good for them to 'promote'
bimetalism by obtaining consent of
Europe to do so? Did tho con
vention mean to say that it would
'promote' by an international agree

effect that tho railroad men iuust or
ganize sound money clnlw. In'a tn.o
uense of tho woid this moanM nothlup
more nor luss than McKinloy 'clubs.
The bulletin asserts that tho tree
colnnpo of silver would necessitate a
reduction of tho men's wages because
It would cripple the industries ot the
country. To this proposition tho un
dersigned lakes exception and hereby
challenges any member of the Bur
lington Huiiroiul Co., to n joint, dis
cussion on the entire proposition as
set forth in their shop notice, tho dis
cussion to take pluco at any time
and at ntiy p'aco between Omaha,
Nub., and Dead wood, S. D.
Tho above notice appeared in last
week's Edgeinont Advocato, of which
Mr. Meredith is editor. J. l'ierpont
Morgan, In behalf of Wall street, has
notified' Hie Presidents of all railroads
that they must use every effort to
elect McKinloy and the order has
been bonded down to their subordi
nates. This will benelit Bryan as
tho railroad men see the point and
will vote for him but must keep their

Yes, the supplements are very
nice and so cheap, too, laid down
in the Times office, express pre
paid, furnished by the philan
thropists of Wall street all for
sake of educating tho "dear
people." Wo suppose tho Times
intends to mako a change and
discard the same kind of matter
which it is now using in plate
form tho "reform club" furnish
es whichever you choose at the
"samo price." We should judgo
that tho supplements would not
be quite ho handy as the plates,
Harvey, however thoy aro more
conspicuous and that's tho way
the gold bugs aro trying awful
hard to appear just now. Since
last spring this samo Wall streot
reform club has expended oven
$2,000 per week sending out this
goldbug literature. Why aro thoy
doing it? For sweet charity's
sako, or to gull the common
herd? Docs it not look like they
are afraid the common peoplo
their eyes opouod?
