Thla will be the first boat of Captain

the distinguished minority leader of the '
house, In reply to a friendly criticism on
what he had said on the floor In regard
to the panic of 1893. Mr. Williams ascribed
It to a contraction of the volume of the
currency. I ventured to Insist, on the con
trary, that It was due to a contraction of
confidence and expanded credits. Over
tradings, speculation and debt caused the
panic of lS'fl. It was not a contraction
of the volume of money, but a contraction

Important, from what he says of the
causes and consequences of panics In gen-
era!, and also from what he says of the
Bryan idea of the quantitative theory of
money, which Is un Implied excuse for
the false position of democrats on the
money question. After declaring that pan
ics come under both high and low tariffs,

tence: Prosperity bleeds panics. A panic,

This is a fine statement about the causes
snd consequences of panics.
Excusing the attitude of "more money"
democrats in ISM, Mr. Williams has this to
We were right this far. that If 11 were
the Jlhlng to do to contract the volume, it
was the wrong thing to do It at the very
time when the credit system was at the
point of exploding ana when all credits
were being contracted.
And here we have the cla Oeluskn of the
quantitative theory of money "a popular
1 delusion." says Csrl Schurx in his Life of
Henry Clay, "that riches can be created
and happiness acquired by a plentiful use
of paper money and an artificial Inflation
of price. The consequence was tin Ken
tucky and everywhere else) what It always
Is. The more plenty the paper became the
more people ran Into dbt." And Mr.
Schurx might have truthfully added, the
greater the Inflation of prices tl:e m'jre
certain and crushing would be the 10I
laps. Any Issue of paper money as a
remedy (or preventive) of the panic of 1S9J
would have made matters worse before and
utterly useless after it. And why? Be
cause, and only because, of the destruction
of confidence and consequent un'versal
commercial and Industrial paralysis. The
creditor class did not want to use any
money. They were demanding payment.
The debtor class could not have obtained
any money If a. thousand millions of addi
tions! paper money had been Isiued And
why again T The simple answer Is, they bad
r ; t-V a J
no credit. Every dollar of money that might
have been Issued In that crisis would have
soon gone Into the bank vaults to keep
silent company with the Idle millions
already there. There was plenty of money
with which to mediate exchanges. If, In a
broad sense, there had been any exchanges
to mediate. The moment confidence began
to be restored snd men began to buy and
sell, and the wheels of industry began to
turn again In the slow progress of debt
payment and liquidation, there was no lack
of money for every legitimate commercial
and Industrial use. To ascribe the return
of confidence and the revival of business
to an increase of volume produced by In
creased production of gold la to expose a
gross misconception of the part which
money plays In the wide world of buslnctx,
J and an absurd misunderstanding of the
real "ources of our wealth. It Is the vast
productions of the soli, the mine and the
factory, In both raw and finished products,
that have produced the return of our
dangerous prosperity. I use the word dan
gerous advisedly. Mr. Williams says that
"prosperity breeds panics,'' and he newr
said a truer thing In his life.
Democrats and rhenp Money.
As regards paper money or "cheap nnd
