Ambtotle said: "Money oxista

Bismarck said iu 1891: "I havo
always boon in favor of an intern a
tional agreement for the restora
tion of silver as a money njetal,
uud if it cannot bo had without
England's help, then wo ought to
restore silver without her."
Mn. Heed, of Maine, said, refer
ring to tho closing of the Indian
mints, "wo havo learned from that
object lesson that the yellow man
using white money holds at his
mercy tho industry of the white
man using yellow money"
McKinley talks to about as
many strangers at his home every
day as Bryan does by chasing
after them from city to city with
a special train charted at the ex
pensoof the silver' kings. Alli
Now Bro. Paradis you know as
vffiW as anybody that Mr. Bryan
has not and nover did have a
special train at his disposal. 'Tis
true he has a special car which is
attached to regular trains and it
is necessary that he should have.
You also know that those "many
strangers" are rounded up and
carried to "visit" McKinley on a
special train and everything is
as free as water. Yes, why don't
McKinley chaso ,the people
ground a while? Is it because
those "many strangers" and
special trains keep him at home
or is it because he is afraid to
meet 3x1 honest, liberal-minded
man like W. J. Bryan in joint de
bate.' McKinley is afaid to como
out of his hole und the, people
Is This a Free Country?
Colxlen, III., Sept. 18. James
Davis, William Wiker, Thomas
Smith and Charles Fuller, resi
dence of this place, employed as
truck-layers by the contractors lay
ing tho steel of the new double
truck of the Illinos Central between
Makunda and Dongolu, were noti
fied this morning by their foreman,
McCoy, to report to him und re
ceive checks for their time.
Twelve non-resident laborers re
ceived tho same notice. McCoy
informed them that the only rea
son that he could give for their dis
missal was that fbey wore advocat
ing the cause of Bryan and free
silver too freely. Their places
wore promptly filled by Italians.
Ab soon as the news reached this
place the Bryan followers became
very angry and excitement is at
fever heat to-night.
"If any man dare say that 371
grains of pure silvei are not a dol
lar's worth, let him be challenged
with the question whether that
amount of uncoined silver will not
purchase as much as the average of
twenty-five of the great staples of
the Americai market, including
real estate and labor, as the samo
silver would havo purchased twenty
five years ago? Let him answer
that truly, ,or 'forever afterward
hold his peace. As n, matter of
fact the uncoined silver in the
American dollar will buy more of
the average of our great staples
than tho same would havo bought
in 1875. The claim that gold coin
is the 'sound monoy,' the 'honest
money,' of the world, and that sil
verreal, primary silver money,
of our old statutory ratio is dis
honest and unsound money, is the
most false, us it is tho most adroit,
proposition over put forth by in
terested parties to defraud tho peo
ple of tho great nation.'' John

The Herald received a letter
from W. H. Roberts, a former
citizen of this county, who is now
residing near Galena., 111. Mr.
Roberts asks "will Bryan carry
Nebraska and Kansas" and adds
' here ho has gained some silver
republicans and lost some gold
democrats, but I think ho has
gained two for every one ho has
lost in $s county." This news
is from tho old home of General
Grant. "We informed Mr. Roberts
that Bryan would carry Box
Butte county by 150 and Ne
braska by at least 50,000.
After tho Palmer speaking at
Alliance a prominent McKinley
republican of this city was hoard

one I over saw; if they can't send
out a man who can produce more
argument and make a bettor im
pression than Palmer dicj; they
better not send any." And just
then an old soldier chipped in
"Yes' Johny Bull ought to send
out good orators anyhow because
it takes a 'dandy' to cram his
argument down tho throats of
Box Butte Items.
