common people can novor expect
any favorable legislation from
tho singlo standard republicans
or democrats and no laboring
man should hesitate in casting
his vote for Bryan. It is simply
tho classes against tho masses

to throw tho English yoko from

portunity." Mr. Fisher is one

valuable journal, will you please
publish tho following address from

Now that MoKinloy and Hobart
have been nominated on a goldbug
platform, tho following di&patch
becomes very interesting.
London, March 10.
Tho London Financial News'
says: "The financial situation in
the United States id very serious. '
The senate lias blocked all relief
measures propoaod by President
Cleveland and congress is at d
dead standstill on tho niouoy ques
tion. Tho froo coinage senators
are masters of the situation. Tho
condition of affairs in tho United
Suites congress demands tho imme
diate attention of British financiers
and statesmen. Tho trade of tho
world is now in our hands, but it
will not long remain there if the
Uuited States gou-s to a bimetallic
basis, with frco and unlimited
coinago of silver. With the addi
tion of silver to tho volume of
mono', everything m America
would take a now face, labor and
industry would gain new life. Tho
grip of tho gold btandard on tho
product of tho word would bo loos
oued, and prices would rise. Great
Britain would lose her markets in
South America, Abia and Europe,
and American ships would bo long
in capturing the carrying trade of
the world. British creditor must
now apply themselves quickly to
the American money problem.
The sound money men and bank
ing intorobts, led by Senator Sher
man, Cleveland and Carlislo, with
a plenty supply of means, have
been beaten, tho Americau people
aro now thoroughly aroused and
educated on tho power and use of
money, and, made desperato by
dobt and business depression, they
are forcing free silver as the main
issue. Groat Britain need fear no
injury to her trade or investments
if the republican party can force
protection tariff as tho main issue
in the coming presidential cam
paign; but if free silvor dominates
tho American mind, and carries at
tho polls, it will bring about a
change in England that will bo
ruinous from its suddenness and
severity. Tho damage that can bo
done British manufacturers is
slight compared with tho disasters
that would bo on tailed by a change
from a binglo gold to a complete
bimetallic standard. It is evident
that tho democratic party will not
renominate a- man who holds to
Prcsidont Cleveland's ideas on
money, and tho only hope for a
continuation of Mr. Cleveland's
financial policy will bo iu tho sue
coss at tho ropublkmns in the next
election. Tho success of free coin
ago will bring down the rate of in-toro-st
on nionoy, and cause an
humediato rise in tho price- of all
commodities. Whon silvor bo
ponies primary money tho Ameri
can mines will pour their products
into tho mints and a now era siini-,
lar to that produced by tho issuo of
greenbacks during tho civil war
will begin. Gold will leavo tho
banks and enter into competition
with silver in tho avenues of trade
and tho mauufacturies of tho Unit
ed States, which have been shut
down or crippled since 1S92 will
again resume their fight ior tho
English markets. It is doubtful
whether tho republican party con
b,e hold much longer in check by
sound nionoy statesmen, as its ad
herents aro divided by powerful
factions. Tho democratic party is
also breaking up under tljo weight
of tho free silv.Or agitation. It
matters not to G aeat Britain which
party succeeds if the gold standard
is maintained, but oithor of the two
old parties or a now party which
goes into powor pledged to free
coinage will be inimical and pro
judicial to English manufactories
and trade. Tho American people
cling with wonderful tenacity to
party organixations, but financial
embarrassment and business stag
nation have become to sovoro for
their patience, and they aro ready
for any change that promises re
lief. They are becoming convinc
ed that it cannot bo found in thu
protection theory, as that has been
tried, and thoy aro massing now
on free silver. When that issue
conies fairly before the American
people England will roprofc hor
apathy and adherence to tho single
