THE CRIME OF 1873.
HOW ACT DEMONETIZING SIL
VER WAS PASSED.
It Wat Hushed Through Congreai With
out llelng Read and I). bat. Wu Hhnt
Off by tho l'revlou Question l'eople
Merer Heard of It.
Arkansas Oazctto: It has been often
rehearsed, bo often Indeed that ono
would think every citizen of tho coun
try was familiar with tho facts, but
they aro not, or it they read about it
they havo forgotten tho facts.
Tho act demonetizing ailver was
erauggled through congress. Less than
a half dozen members knew of It.
President Grant, Who signed tho bill,
was utterly Ignorant of It. Judge
Kolly, of Pennsylvania, tho chairman
of the committee on colnago, woights
and measures at tho time, when
charged with having advocated tho de
monetization of silver, Bald In a speech
in tho houso: "In connection with the
charge that I advocated tho bill which
domonotlzod tho standard silver dol
lar, I say that, though chairman of tho
committee on colnago, I was as Ignor
ant ot tho fact that It would demone
tize tho sliver dollar, or ot Its drop
ping tho silver dollar from our system
of coins, as were those distinguished
Bonntors, Messrs. Blaine and Voorhaos,
who woro then members of the house,
and each of whom, a few days since,
Interrogated the other: 'Did you know
It was dropped when the bill passed?'
'No said Mr. Blaine, 'did you? 'No,'
said Mr. Voorhces. I do not think
thcro wero threo members In the houso
that know it. I doubt whether Mr.
Hooper, who, In my absence from tho
committee on colnago nnd attendance
on the committee on ways and means,
mnnnged tho bill, knew It. I Bay tlila
In Justice to him." This statement wns
made In the Forty-fifth congress.
In the Forty-sixth congress the inot-
ttr wns again brought to the attention
of tho houso by Judcc Kelly, who oald:
"All that I can say Is that thetcftrhirHr
tee on coinage, weights and measures,
who roported tho original bill, were
faithful and able, and scanned it pro
visions closely; that as their organ I
reported It: THAT IT CONTAINED
PROVISIONS FOR BOTH THE
STANDARD SILVER DOLLAR AND
THE TRADE DOLLAR. Never having
heard until a long tlmo after Us enact
ment Into law of the substitution In the
senate of tho section which dropped
the standard silver dollnr, I profess to
know nothing ot Its history, but I am
prepared to soy that In the legislation
of this country there Is no mystory
equal to tho demonetization ot tho sil
ver dollar of the United States. I have
never met a man who could tell Just
how It camo about or why. The bill
was passed without any allusion In de
bato to tho question of the retention
or tho abandonment of the standard sil
Evidently tho crime was committed
after It had left tho hands of the com
mittee, and boforo It was voted on In
the house. How it passed that body is
thus described by Congressman Bright
of Tennessee: "It passed by fraud in
tho house, never having been printed
In advance, being a substitute for tho
printed bill; never having been read at
tho clerk's desk, the reading having
been dispensed with by an impression
that tho bill made no alteration In the
colnago laws; it was passed without
discussion, debate being cut off by
operation of the previous question. It
was passed, to my certain informa
tion, under such circumstances Unit
the fraud escaped the attention of
some ot the most watchful, as well as
tho ablest statesmen In congress at the
Senator Allison said In reference to
the subject; "When the secret history
of this bill ot 1873 comes to be told, it
will discloso the fact that the house of
representatives Intended to coin both
gold and silver, and Intended to place
both metals upon the French relatlan
instead of on our own, which was the
true scientific position with teference
to this subject in 1873, but that the
bill afterward was doctored."
Senator Beck said: "The bill never
was understood by either house of con
gress." Senator Thurman said; "There
Is not a single man In the senate, un
less a member of tho committee from
which the bill came, who had the
slightest Idea that It was even a squint
Mr. Holraan, In tho house, snid "the
measure nnd the mothods of Its pass
ago was a colossal swindle. It does
not possess the moral forco of law."
Representative Cannon, of Illinois,
says the bill was not discussed nnd
neither members ot congress nor the
people understood the scope of the
Senator Hereford, of West Virginia,
in a speech in tho senate, said "the bill
never was read, never was discussed,
and the chairman of the committee
said to Mr. Holman, when asked tho
question, that It did not affect the
coinage In any way whatever."
Who was benefited by this crime?
Tho foreign and New York bondhold
ers. Who paid for it? Let the follow
ing affidavit explain. It was made by
Mr. Frederick A. Luckenbach, a for
mer member of tho Now York Stock
Exchange, but a resident of Denver for
several years. The present editor of
"The Gazette" met Mr. Luckenbash
often in Denver and heard him re
hearse the matter, substantially as
given in this statement:
"In 18C5 I visited London, England,
for tho purpose of -placing there Penn

Interested. I took with me letters of

could relnto facts about tho corruption
of tho American congress that would
placo It far ahead of the English par
liament In that line. After dinner he
invited me into another room, whero
ho resumed tho conversation about
legislative corruntlon. He said: "If
you will pledge me your honor as a
gentleman not to divulge what I am
about to tell you whllo I live, I will
convince you that what I said about the
corruption of tho American congress
is'truc vrrg1?ve "him my promise, and
ho then continued: "I went to Ameri
ca In 1872-73, authorized to secure, if
I could, the passage of a bill demonetiz
ing silver. It was to tho Interest of
those whom I represented the govern
ors of the Bank of England to have It
done. I took with mo $500,000, vlth
instructions if that was not sufficient
to accomplish tho object, to draw for
another $300,000, or as much more 33
was necessary. I saw the committees
of the house and senate and paid tho
money and stayed in America until I
know the measure was safe. Your peo
ple will not now comprehend the far
reaching extent of that measure, but
they will In after years. Whatever you
may think of corruption In the English
parliament, I assure you 1 would not
have dared to make such an attempt
hero as I did In your country."
Such, In brief, is the crime of 1873,
tho crime which tho people of the
United States are clamoring to havo
undone; a crime which, In the language
of Mr. Carllble, "would ultimately cn
tall more misery upon the human rare
than all the wars, pestilences and fam
ines that ever occurred In the history
ot the world."

The case of the Central Pacific rail
road Is one that Justifies tho govern
ment control of railroads. Tho rela
tion of the Central Pacific and tho
government is thus stated by tho
"The Central Pacific railroad com
pany Is bankrupt. Its Immense in
debtedness includes a round $80,000,
000 to tho United States government.
This sum represents principal and in
terest of C per cent bonds, payable In
thirty years from date, Issued by the
government to tho builders of tho Cen
tral Pacific road at different times be
tween 18GG and 1872. Tho original
sum total of them all aggregated about
$28,000,000. Tho first of these bonds
became payablo in January, 1895, and
the Interest during all those years, not
compounded, came to 180 per cent of
tho face value ot the bonds. Tho re
maining bonds fall due at intervals un
til 1902. Now, tho solo survivor of tho
four men who built the road Is C. P.
Huntington, and he Is responsible for
the bills that turn up so persistently
Mr. Huntington wishes congress to
decree that tho railroad be granted
100 yearn longer in which to pay this
dobt. Interest he says should bo 2 per
cent, and the United States govern
ment should become responsible for
both principal and Interest of these
new 100 year bonds. The bonds now
existing are to bo cancelled when the
new bonds make their appearance, and
tho railroad itself shall be freed from
its present indebtedness altogether.
The railroad proposes to pay principal
and interest of the new bonds in in
stallments, tho last one falling due in
That is a very interesting scheme.
If it succeeds Mr. Huntington will be
tho most famous money maker that
ever lived. For these reasons:
The Central Pacific railroad exists
under California laws. It Is not in
corporated under the national govern
ment. Its charter expires In 1911.
Its affalrB must bo wound up then.
Should It pay its debts it may rein
corporate. If not, it goes into a re
ceiver's hands. Under the laws of
California the four estates of Messrs.
Huntington, Stanford, Crocker and
Hopkins (the men who pushed the
road through) aro liable Tor tho in
debtedness. But when the govern
ment sued tho Stanford estate, Mr.
Cleveland's attorney general failed to
carry the case to the courts on its
merits, and lost before the supreme
court of the United States. No Jus
tice changed his mind on this occa
sion. The corporation disappears in
1911. Suppose the government took
possession of the roud. It would get
"two streaks of rust and a right of
way." Huntington's scheme, defeated
In the last democratic congress, and
revived in the last republican ono,
grants him immunity from all liabil
ity. Uncle Sam hands over his secur
ity to Huntington, who gives him back

A Lumbering He Nailed.
Tho New Berne (N. C.) Chronicle In
Its first Issue denies that American
lumber has been affected by tariff
change, and says:
"Slnco tho tariff was removed less
lumber has been shipped from Canada
than for any like period when lumber
waB protected. The demand
is too blight, tho supply too great
consequence, slump In the lumber in
dustries. Lumber, like all
other things manufactured in the

when the powers of Wall street aro
strenuously exerting themselves to
frighten tho American people into sell
ing their birthright for a mesa of
Hannalsm, we may expect fairly a py
rotechnic display of 'object lesson.' "
I dosire to give Bpeclal emphaslB to
tho plank which recommends such leg
islation as is necessary to securo the
arbitration of differences between em
ployers engaged in interstate commerce
and their employes. Arbitration is not
a new Idea It is simply nn extension
of tho court of Justice. The laboring
men of the country have expressed a
desire for arbitration, and the railroads
cannot reasonably object to the deci
sions rendered by an Impartial tribunal.
Society has an Interest even greater
than the Interest of employer or em
ploye, and has a right to protect Itself
by courts of arbitration against the
growing Inconvenience and embar
rassment occasioned by disputes be
tween those who own the great arteries
of commerce on the ono hand and the
laborers who operate them on the oth
er. W. J. Bryan.
Tho Producers of Wealth.
Labor creates capital. Until wealth
la produced by tho application of brain
and musclo to the resources of the
country there is nothing to divide
among tho non-producing classes of
society. Slnco the producers of wealth
create tho nation's prosperity In time
of peace, and defend the nation's flag
in time of peril, their interests ought
at all times to bo considered by thoso
who stand in official positions. The
Democratic party has ever found Its
voting strength among thoso who are
proud to be known as the common
people, and it pledges Itself to propose
and enact such legislation as is neces
sary to protect the masses in the free
exercise of overy political right and in
fhe enjoyment of their Just share of the
rewords of their labor. W. J. Bryan.
The Democratic party is opposed to
trusts. It will be recreant to Its duty
to the people If It recognized either the
moral or the legal right of these great
aggregations of wealth to stifle com
petition, bankrupt rivals, and then
prey upon society. Corporations are
the creatures of law and they must not
be permitted to pass from under the
control of the power which created;
they are permitted to exist on the the
ory that they advance tho public weal
and they must not bo allowed to us6
their powers for the public injury.
W. J. Bryan.
The people of tho United States,
happy In the enjoyment of the blese
ingB of free government, feel a gener
ous sympathy toward all who aro en
deavoring to secure like blessings for
themselves. This sympathy, whllo re
specting all treaty obligations, is espe
cially active and earnest when excited
by the struggles of neighboring peo
ples, who, like tho Cubans, are near
enough to observe the workings of a
government w,hlch derives all Its au
thority from the consent of the gov
erned. W. J. Bryan.
The CItII Service
That tho American people are not in
favor of life tenure In the government
service Is evident from the fact that
thoy, as a rule, mako frequent changes
in their official representatives when
those representatives nro chosen by
ballot. A permanent office-holding
class is not In harmony with our Insti
tutions. A fixed term in appointive of

A DIFFICULT QUESTION.
It Seemed an Katy One, bnt the Qnery
Kdltor lllnndered Over It.
From the Chicago Post: "Tho qucs-j
lion, sir," said tho chairman ot tho
delegation, "Is an important one, bu
moro difficult to answer than you would)
think when you first hear It We have
wagered a matter of threo glasses of)
beer and two cigars on It, also, so thero
is a double reason why you should bo
very careful in answering it."
"Fire away," said tho query editor
"Well, you see It's thlB way," ex
plained tho spokesman. "Over in our
ward there were two men named John
Jones, and they were father and son.
Is that clear?"
"Perfectly. Go nhead."
"Well, last night they were both,
burned to death in the same house, and.
to-day when wo wero making up a list
of those who lost their Uvea the boys
insisted on putting down 'John Jones,
Sr.,' and 'John Jones, Jr. "
"Quite right," nssertod the query edi
tor. "That's what we camo to ask youi
about," returned tho spokesman. "Ol
course, we all knew who "was meant,,
but technically "
' "Technically It was exactly right,"
Interrupted the query editor.
"Sure! Of course, I'm sure. Hot,
else would you refer to them?"
"Oh, If you'ro so dead suro about It
we're not going to disputo you, but you
ought to take all the technicalities into
"I have!" thundered tho query editor.
"If you can advance any reason why
they should be referred to in any
other way, fire ahead; if you can't, got
out and let me go on with my work."
"Well," said tho spokesman clowly
and deferentially. "I'd figured it out n
little differently. You see, tho old man
lived down stalrB and tho boy lived on
the floor above, and tho fire started in
tho basement. Consequently, it stands
to reason that tho old man died first."
"What of it?" demanded the query
"Why, when the old man died th
young man ceased to bo 'Junior,' dldn'l
"And if he did ho was not John
Jones, Jr., when ho died. Consequently
no John Jones, Jr., died at all. That is
the way I figured It out, but, of course,
a query editor is always right, and it
you say that "
The chairman of the delegation
dodged and a paper-weight struck the
wall. Then the delegation retired,
while the query editor kicked himself
around the room and declared that the
next man who tried to play him for a
sucker would not live to tell ot it.

The headache which comes from dis

recognized. Its symptoms arc pain in
the eyes, temples and over the brows
Hot water Is a very valuable stimulant
for tho eyes.
For nervous headache a hot bath, a

cool, quiet room will often be found
successful. A headache from fatigue
may bo helped by pressing a epongo
wet with hot water on tho napo of tho
neck and on tho temples.
Bilious or sick headaches are com

times stop of their own accord when
ono reaches middle age. They como
when a person has eaten food which
does not digest readily, and a careful
diet is imperative, sweetmeats and pas
