The Race Problem.
On another page appears a statenifnt
from James ('. Moore, of Knoxvllle,,
Tenn., relutlve to an Institution which
he superintend!! known as the Cosmo
polltan Library ami Industrial school.
Mr. Moore Is u negro, and his life has
been thus far spent In efforts to educate
and elevate his race. He wisely con
tends that mere book learning will not
Rhine suffice to solve the race problem.
There is need of trained brains, to be
sure; but there is even greater need. In
his Judgment, of skilled hands among
the blight young colored men of the
south, und to this end Mr. Moore lays
stress on Industrial training and makes
It his L-hli.f endeavor to lit his pupils for
self -sustaining work as artlsuns.
This gentleman comes bearing some
of the best recommendations that we
have ever examined. He will endeavor
to secure from the generously disposed
citizens of Scranton practical assistance
In his work. If after satisfying them
selves of the worthiness of Mr. Moore
to be entrusted with funds for such a
purpose, there shall be on the part of
Serantonlans a liberal response, it will
be In a direction which needs every
possible attention. No thoughtful mind
can fall to realize the very grave re
sponsibility under which the white citi
zen of this nation rest toward the
black who yet linger under the handi
caps Inherited from slavery days.
There were greater liabilities almost
by 100 per cent. In the American busi
ness failures during the three months
of 1896 than during the whole year 1890.

"Tariff reform" and sliver agitation
Are Bankers Responsible?
That was a timely point which James
O. Cannon, vice-president of the Fourth
National bank of New York, brought
out in his address before the New York
State Bankers' association, delivered
last Friday at Niagara Falls. "The
question," said he, "occurs to me, are
we in any wise blameworthy for the
growth of the free-silver sentiment? Is
It not true that a large number of bank
ers have, perhaps unconsciously, con
tributed to bring about the present dis
satisfaction of the borrowing class? Too
f rpnilrnr1v whon a trnrlasman nn a fnr
cr goes to his banker to secure a loan
s met with a refusal on the ground
there Is a scarcity of money, or he
rmed that because of the scarcity
ey n must pay a- high, rata of
Interest This Is a poor policy to pur
sueespeclally !f money Is not scarce.
"The banker, he went on to say,
"should carefully study the conditions
that surround his customers and when
refusing advances should frankly and
honestly give his reasons for so doin
If a farmer, for Instance, is raising only
one crop and that crop is likely to fail,
thus obliging his banker to wait for his
money an entire year, he should be ad
vised by the bank officer to put in more
diversified crops or to produce some
thing that will sell for cash, so that he
can pay his loans at the bank at ma
turlty. Or if a merchant is selling to a
class of trade in a community that is
undesirable he should be cautioned and
advised regarding this whole subject
In other words, the banker should be
looked upon by his clients the same as a
good family physician is looked upon
by his patients, and there should exist
between them the utmost confidence."
In still other words, honesty is the best
policy for bankers as well as for other
branches of business.
It la encouraging to hear so promi
nent a banker as Mr. Cannon is talk
this way. It is Indicative that the more
prescient representatives of our bank
lug Interests ate at la3t beginning to
realize that If they would be left free
to continue their profitable activities
without embarrassment from Populia
tic legislation, the bankers of the coun
try must meet the agricultural Inter
ests at or near the half wuy point. It
will not pay the banker to be exacting
with the farmer, for the farmer, who
B'jeins In recent years to be getting
rather the worst of things, has at least
one Inalienable resource, his vote. And
If thut vote Is to be secured for tran-
liUillzhig measuies, the farmer himself
must lirst be tranquilizer. He Is Set
Uum dishonest at heart. He seldom
wishes to shirk a debt or repudiate an
obligation. At the same time, he is not
used to the Indexible sharpness which
characterizes business transactions In
the cities, und the banker who treats
him as he would treat a merchant or
manufacturer, that Is to suy, rigidly and
without show of business consideration
further than Is stipulated In the bond,
is quite as apt to make un enemy of him
ns to make a friend.
Live and let live is as good a prin
ciple In banking as It Is in other Voca
tions; or if it Isn't, It ought to be.
"The money of the I nttcd Mutes,
it nd every kind or form of il, whether
of paper, silver or gold, must lip as

not only be current ut its full ftico

Speech of Acceptance.
The Voice of Iowa.
In view of the show of confidence
whii: hthe silver Democrats make of be
lug able to carry Iowa for Bryan It is
interesting; to rtad 111 detail the pro
ceedings of last week's stute convention
of Iowa Jtepubllcans so fur as they re
lute to the silver Issue. Tho convention
was held last Wednesday In Des Moines
and was attended by the most promin
ent leaders of the party in the state,
including Senators Allison and Clear,
und Ilepreseiitatlves Henderson, Hep
burn, Curtis, lydegrarf, Lacey, Dolll
ver and Hull. The platform was lurge
ly the Joint work of these leaders, and
its financial plank Is understood to re
flect the sentiments of Senator Allison
In particular. It Is us follows:
In the interest of our export trade, for
the furtherance of the policy of reciproc
ity, and for the promotion of our com
merce, as well as for the benefit of our
silver producers, we pledge support of tho
Iowa representatives In congress to (he
promotion of an International agreement
to establish the Joint standard universal
ly: and from the same considerations to
opposo the proposition to carry tho United
States to silver monometallism. We are
opposed to the change to a single silver
ktandurd because it will decrease and
not Increase the supply of money in tiio
country; because, instead of restoring con
fidence, it will destroy credit; instead
of Inspiring enterprise It will spreil
alarm; instead of aiding tho debtor it will
Involve him in bankruptcy; Instead of
furnishing employment to labor it will
make more uncertain and tinremunerattva
that which it Iium. und Instead of bene
fiting the producer und farmer it will in
jure them, and finally because It would do
Infinite Injustice and involve our country
in repudiation und dishonor. V de
nounce ns false the statement of th
Democratic party that we have contracted
or that our policy will contract the vol
ume) of our currency; on the contrary, wo
assert that the principle we advocate Is
the only principle that will give to the
country the money, gtable in its purchas
ing power and equal In amount, whicli the
prosperity of the people demands. ri'.9
Republican party, under Its policy, ajsv.ni
the people of an ample currency, con
posed of gold, silver and paper, no one
kind preferable to another; none of it
subject In the hands of the people
to variation of value, but every lolur us
good as gold. We stand upon the record
which the Republican party has made.
We recall the pronhecies of our antagon
ists in Iowa in 1S7S. that specie payments
would ruin our state, and we point to the
period of never-to-be equalled prosperity
which ensued from lhSO to lti92, with every
dollar of our currency kept at the gold
standard, without the sale of a bond or a
whi:cr ugalnst our credit.
Thft was followed by a tariff plank
that also deserves to be quoted:
We reaffirm our faith In the doctrine of
protection to American labor, and the
policy which Is part of it, the promotion
of our foreign trade by reciprocal agree
ments. Under this consistent and prac
tical policy the development of our lim
itless resources will be resumed, enter
prise will spring into action at a million
opportunities, capital will go out seeking
for the wage-earner, and when the table
of the worklngman is again covered with
plenty the American farmer will know
good times once more. We hold that the
prices of our faim product! can be re
stored only by the recovery of the mar
kets to which we had access four years
ago, and through the return to our home
consumers of the buying power which was
theirs four years ago. The Iowa farmer
needs no other conditions to assure his
prosperity than those which maintained
the level of his prices, increased the value
of his farm, and reduced the cost of fi'
purchases during the four splendid years
of President Harrison's administration. 4!y
the restoration of these conditions, by
maintaining the stability of our money,
and not by debasing its value, the Itepuo
llcan party promise! him relief.
The principal speaker before the fcon-
"Resolved, That the platform adopted by the Chicago
couvention is neither honest nor patriotic, and therefore
not Democratic ; that it differs so radically from the past
doctrines of the Democratic party, aud particularly from the
national platform of 1S92 and
the year 1S96, that we cannot,
its wide departure from true
believe that the highest duty

ventlon. Senator Allison took a firm
position In opposition to free coinage. He
pointed out that from 1S73 to 1890 under
the gold standard, the republic more
than doubled Its wealth and added by
more than fifty per cent, to the output
of its industries, a greater showing of
progress and prosperity that was
ever before made In an equal
or twice an equal period of
time: and he added: "The remedy pro
posed at Chicago Is a. sham remedy,
that will bear us still deeper into the
confusion and disasters we have ex
perienced during the last three or four
years. It is a remedy which is a death
dealing blow to the prosperity of our
country, its Industries and occupations
and to all Its property and all the wages
of labor and earnings of the people. On
the contrary, the Republican party will
restore this prosperity, not today, nor
tomorrow, nor In the twinkling of an
eye. but will restore It healthily, stead
ily and constantly to what It was when
the Republican party surrendered the
control of this government Into the
hands of the Democratic party."
In short, there was not a voice raised
at this enthusiastic convention which
could by any distortion of purpose be
construed to Indicate that the Republi
cans of Iowa are lukewarm In faith or
fearful of defeat. The unanimous sen
timent wus one of sutlefuu'tlou and con
fidence. Iowa will give .0,000 plurality
for McKinley and Hobart.
According to Mulhall. the United
States is far and away the wealthiest
nation in the world. Below Is his table

Mr. Bryan's speeches are devoted
principally to the enunciation of state
ments not in dispute; such for instance,
as that "all citizens of this republic are
cquuj before the law," that "the object
of government should be the welfare of
the governed," etc. Platitudes like
these, while grand enough In them
selves, become somewhat tiresome when
solemnly re-Iterated five or six times a
day for weeks in succession. The boy
orator should endeavor wither to do less
idle talking or else to fertilize his Inces
sant remarks with a richer vitality of

DRIVING GOLD AWAY.
Rochester Post-Express. ,
If the silver agitation could be silenced
there Is no doubt thut the supply of gold
In this country would Increase with a
rapidity never known bt,'re. Many cred
ulous persons iiitve bjen deluded Into
thinking that with free sliver we should
have an abundant currency. Not only
would It drive out of circulation six hun
dred millions of gold which we now have,
but already th? agitation for fine silver
has kept awny liundreis of millions of
gold which would otherwise be In uso
among us. Foreign investors have sold
their securities and taken away the money
received tor them, and the feeling of un
certainty has caused a pmall but steady
hoarding of the precious metal. Be
yond this, the increasing stream of gold
pouring over tho world with benellelil
effect to all nations which receive their
partion of it. Is turned away from our
shores as a result of the efforts tor free
coinage of silver.
il :i I!
Gold will not come to a land where there
is a possibility that a hundred cents worth
of yellow metal may be paid with 50 cents
worth of white metal. Year by year new
nilnei turn out amounts which exceed all
former experience. This ensures an
abundant supply of currency for Europe,
and it has aided the prosperity which Is
shared by Kngiand, and by every Euro
pean country with a trald standard, but
not a dollar of this reaches the United
States. The annual production is now two
hundred millions, it Is three times as
large as it was a few years ago, and there
is every Indication that It will increase
rather than diminish. In the five years
following lslK). so recent figures show us.
a thousand million dollars have been taken
from the mines, an amount which con
founds the imagination, und all this enor

which there I no fear of a depreciation

Not only does all ths produce of the

in no danger of Impairment, but the more
costly metal leaves the land in which
there Is even the possibility of a cheaper
currency. During the five years that a
thousand million dollars of gold have en
riched the treasuries of Kuropean states
our net exports of gold have exceeded
two hundred millions. The agitation for
free silver steadily makes our condition
worse and the laws of trade will not

FREE SILVER AND PRICES.
Q. W. Boese, In New York Journal.
There Is a side of the money question
of very great Importance particularly to
clerks, mechanics, and, In fact, all wage
earners. The great boi rowers are the
large corporations railroad, telegraph
and manufacturing companies, etc. in
order to procure tho money they want
they promise and contract to pay It in
"gold coin." At the present time the
payments that are made to them for rail
road fates, freight, telegraph messages
and merchandise are in silver or gold and
as the United States government will pay
one or the other, It makes no difference to
them which they get. But supposing sil
ver were made legal tender, all the re
ceipts would be la silver and the corpora
tlons would have to take It. and as before
illustrated, it would be worth one-half as
much as previously.
But these corporations must repay tho
money they have borrowed in gold. How
can they do It? The only way U to double
their charges, so thut if It cost you 6 cents
to go home from work now, It will cost
you 10 thereafter. They will also prac
tically reduce the wages of their em
ployes about one-half. Your landlord also
has mortgaged the house In which he
lives and he has to pay gold in settlement
of the interest. Where does lie get It?
Why, he raises your rent double! It.
The man thut owns the large dry goods
and grocery stores has to pay gold. He
also raUea the prices of his merchandise.
And yuu, how do you fare? Are your
wages raised? Perhaps, ultimately Dut
not for a long time. Your employer feels
poor, lie is being paid only one-half what
he expected. Besides, capital is with
drawn, Investor are frightened, foreign
ers say we have cheated our creditors.
huve repudiated our debts therefore, for
want of capital, Industries and enter
prises are at u standstill. Consequently
hundreds of thousands of men are out of
employment and are willing to work for
next to nothing In order to keep actual
starvation from their families. That, too,
naturally tends to lower waves still fur
ther. THE COST OF IT.
From the Times-Herald.
If free coinage of silver should become
a law of the United States prices of com
modities would be doubled. The first ar
ticles on which doubling the price would
appear aro those we Import, of these ar
ticles we Import tea und coffee are the
most Important to the common people.
Every housekeeper knows what these two
articles cost per pound today. By doub
ling the price per pound the first effect
of the free coinage of silver can be un
derstood. But, IJ will be usked, is there
no balancing advantage to be gained?
ine answer is simple. Absolutely none.
