pur Information Bureau
The Times wants The Tribune to ans
wer tho following questions. We do so
What effect does ft decreasing volume ot
money have on general prices?
Want effect docs nn Increasing volume
of money have on general prices?
What difference was titers In the mon
etary legislation of the United States
prior to 1S73 and Rfter that date?
Is It true that general prices In gold
standard countries havo declined nearly
fia per cent, since 1S73? If so, what docs
Is it true that general prices have re
malned approximately Btewly In Bll'vcr
standard countries since 1ST.'!? If so, why
this difference from gold standard coun
tries? Under a regime of falling prices who is
benefited? Who Is harmed?
Is not a regime of steady prices the t'est
for any country? If so, what monetary
legislation Is best calculated to produce
Other thlnss belnfr equal a decreasing
volume of money lowers general prices:
while an Increasing volume raises them.
In this connection It is Interesting to
note that the per capita circulation of
money In the United Stntes hna grown
steadily under the pold standard from
118 In 1S73 to nearly 135 In 1S92. Hut this
prudunl expansion ot the currency could
not prevent the Introduction Into the
processes of, production of labor-saving
machinery, ond the resuit has been that
In many directions prices have fallen,
although the quantity of money in cir
culation has been largely augmented.
Trior to 1873 the law gave silver equal
mintage privileges with gold. Silver;
however, did not avail Itself of those
privileges to any extent. Only about
S.000,000 silver dollars were coined from
tho foundation of the government down
to 1S73, hence In that year It was decided
to rescind the legal provision for the free
coinage of silver dollars. That coinaga
had, as we say, already been stopped In
effect; In 1S73 It was discontinued In
name also. But under subsequent leg
islation nearly $700,000,000 worth of sil
ver was coined or put out In tho form
of silver certificates.
It is not true that general prices in
(old standard countries have declined
nearly SO per cent, since 1873. while 1n
liver standard countries they have re
mained; approximately ' steady. The
Aid rich senate committee which ex
amined the range of prices covering
232 articles of American production from
J SCO to 1890 found an average fall of only
t per cent whereas silver bullion fell
SO per cent In countries with the silver
standard, stability on such a falling
bullion value of silver would clearly be
Impossible. In the important single
Item of labor, however, the Aldrlch com
mittee found that wages In this country
had steadily risen both in nominal
amount and In actual purchasing pow
er; whereas in silver standard countries
wages are ridiculously low and are fall
ing rather than rising. This shows
that the gold standard with a Protective
tariff, U a mighty good thing for all
who have to work for living.
The' only persons permanently bene
fitted by a regime of steadily declining
prion art, of course, those who have
fixed incomes, life salaries or pensions.
In our country this class is small
Steady prices certainly are best. But
the best way to secure stability In busl
ness Ik not to undermine it every four
years, as the Democrats did In 1S2 with
their free trade crusade, nnd as they are
trying to do at present with their revo
lutlutinry movement for free sliver
It is now apparent that the Republi
can campaign managers purposely gave
liiyun the oratorical right of way. They
evidently foresaw that he would talk
himself out long before election day.
"I do not know what yon think
about it. but I believe that it is a
good deal better to open the
mills oi Ilic Tailed States to the
labor of America than to t pen up
tho mints of tho t inted Status
to the silver of the world."
Bryan's acceptance speech, according
to Murk llanna. is "like a skimmer-full
of holes." It will be fuller of holes than
ever, when John Sherman and Benja
min Harrison get through peppering it.
The editor of the Wilkes-Barre News
Dealer says the man who argues that
under free coinage the dollar will pur
chase only DO cents worth of commodi
ties "lies." This eminently courteous
and delicnte way of getting around
an unpleasant fact Is common to
innny debaters, but we have observed
that It generally falls to carry con
viction. IC the nimable editor of the Luzerne
contemporary will put in his pocket a
gold dollar or Its equivalent In Ameri
can money and take that representa
tive of wealth to the city of
M.xla. where free coinage already
prcvuils. he will discover that he can
buy any article which In Mexico sells
for $2 with his one gold-backed Yankee
dollar, whether It be gold, silver or
paper. On the same scale, with a free
coinage Mexican dollar, he can buy In
the United States only 50 cents' worth
of our commodities," What is true in
Mexico now would manifestly be true
in the United States if this country
would relapse Into the Mexican style
of finance. The free coinage American
dollar would, of course, buy a nominal
dollar's worth, but that dollar's worth
would bo only half as much ns we to
day get for $1 under the gold standard.
Hence, unless our stock of dollars or
our wages at once doubled under free
coinage, we should bo In the position
of the man who bit oft his nose to spite
his face; nnd no sensible man supposes
for an instant that a law passed at
Washington would double either his
dollars or his wages at one dip. Even if
it did, he would be relatively no better
To bo sure, Mr. Bryan, Mr. Stewart,
Mr. Altgcld and Mr. Coxey deny thut
free coinage would debase the cur
rency. They say It would pull gold
down nnd silver up until the two metals
would meet and keep together on a per
manent parity. But they give no rea
sons for this belief. It !s merely their
conjecture, their guess. On the other
band, every recognized economist and
nearly every experienced statesman
the world over says that free coinage
by America alone would do nothing
of the kind, but would, if anything itt
the? long run lncrense the disparity be
tween the metals by forcing gold to a
premium nnd making it morei than
ever worth while for speculators to try
to "corner" that metal so as to make it
nrtillclally harder for us to get hold of
it when we come to puy Interest and
principal on our already executed gold
clause loans.' Is it foolish to suppose
that the latter guess 1 the more rea
sonable, than the former? Is Bryan
a better authority than McKinley;
Stewart than Tom Reed; Altgeld than
John Sherman; and Coxey than Ben
jamin Harrison, Justin S. Morrill, Wil
liam B. Allison, or any others of a host
of men whoso reputation for learning
and statesmanship covers three contin
ents? In a court of Justice the value of
testimony Is judged by the characters
of the witnesses who offer it. Can the
case for free coinage meet this fair
if we may be permitted a personal
word of advice to the News-Dealer edi
tor, whom we select as a type of many
disputants in this campaign, It would
be to suggest to him and to all like him
that the calling of names or the use of
harsh language will not permanently
help the cause in whose behalf It is
done. Any man can say that his op
ponent lies; but unless he proves It, he
hurts only himself. And even if he
could establish an error In his oppon
ent's argument, would it be chivalrous,
manly or honorable to fall into bil
lingsgate in consequence? Are all
mistakes deliberate? Are all errors
planned with Intent to deceive? That
was a splendid lesson In political cour
tesy the other day when Mr. , Bland
and the members of a Bryan and So
wall club called upon Major McKinley
nnd expressed, along with their in
tention of voting against him, their
admiration ot his personal worth. In
the public speeches of both Bryan and
McKinley the same dignified courtesy
prevails. Is it too much to ask that this
example of the standard-bearers shall
be followed by the subordinates in the
We may be mistaken in our estimate
of the American people, but we be
lieve that a majority ot them, ignoring
clap trap and dust throwing, will de
cide the issues of the day In the calm
spirit of reason. We predict that the
side which shall offer the best and
clearest Impersonal argument will win.
Therefore it behooves those who want
to stand a show of winning to put ' a

check on their tempers and a curb on
It Is reported from Washington, upon
what Is described as "excellent author
ity." that President Cleveland dors not
favor the selection of an independent
ticket at Indianapolis, but prefers that
the convention decide that every sound
money Democratic voter use his own
judgment in casting his vote, either for
McKinley or Bryan. Of course, Mr.
Cleveland's opinion is not highly im
portant, but if it Is as above described,
it certainly is creditable to his common

which made us Bay on 'Saturday. "The
dollar can bo too good for the man who
has to earn it by honest toll." Just the
opposite of this was written and In

trade notions of former years. He

BRYAN AS AN ORATOR.
From the Toronto Saturday Night,
Wo uro told that at last a great orator
bos come forward In America, and that
even Demosthenes has been surpassed.
It Is stated that In the history of tho world
them Is no record of any such Impres
sion being made by oratory upon a multi
tude of men as that made by William
Jennings Bryan upon the Democratic
convention at Chicago. It seems to me
that In the history of the world there never
was launched a more audacious boom
than .that which floated this free silver
candidate for tho presidency of the United
States. After hearing for two or three
days of the magnificent speech delivered
by ltrynn we were at last permitted to
read it in Toronto, atwl I for ono was
II II II
Anyone accustomed to public speaking
will bear me out in saying that the speech
bore unmistakable evidence of having been
prepared beforehand. Its eloquence was
spasmodic. It was sixteen parts dross to
one of pure nretal. The opening passage
was clearly a memorized piece of rhetoric,
and the carefully pollened brilliance of
tho reference to miners and farmers ns
being business men ns truly as the men
who sat !n the back offices and cornered
the money of the world, threw Into sorry
contrast the weak and tawdry passages
that made up the center of the speech.
When he fell back upon the Inspiration of
tho occasion which should have been suf
ficient to Inspiru the veriest clod he grew
commonplace. Rut he rescued himself nt
the finish with a. ringing sentence, a phrase
or two that he had fashioned In his leis
ure and carried with lilm for days or
II II II
lie had nn immense audience of excited
men. Tho logical mind of a strong man
would have realized that a question was
up for discussion that called for tho ex
ercise of Intellect. Bryan did not reason,
he did not argue ho led the multitude
from excitement to madness with such a
speech us the campaign orator uses c:i
the stump. A match would have started
the blaze he used a flaming brand. The
moment and the man came together. It
was another can' of tumultuous mobs on
the streets of Pari and Bryan was tho
man who saw the chance and cried: "To
the Bastile! Let us tear down the Has
tile!" II I! II
The extravagant phratses used by Hry.
nn may have suited the temper of his
over-wrought nudlence but they would ex
cite merriment elsewhere. McKinley
is not greatly esteemed in Canada, but I
think the disinterested opinion on this side
of the line Is that McKinley's address In
reply to the ofliclal Intimation thut he had
received the Itepuidlcan nomination was a
better effort than Bryan's, and that It
would be so declared by a vote of the col
lege professors of the United States.
II !l II
It Is a long time since any Important
residential candidate on the other side
has put forward any speech or document
so lacking In literary merit as the spech
that won William Jennings Hrvnn the
Democratic nomination. Crover Cleveland
nas always been admired for the states,
manlike quality of his messages. They
have had such perfection that a trivial
flaw in a recent one set the magazine ed
itors wrangling about It. James O.' Blaine
was a very accomplished speaker and
writer, and Benjamin Harrison has shown
that he can write very smooth-flowing
English. It has remained for Mr. Bryan
to come out for cheap money and tinsel
generally. If he sees any merit at all in
gold coins It Is because thev glitter like
brass door knobs. If Mr. tlryan Is not

now won.i) it woiik?
From the Sun.
If we could all repudiate half our debts
ond If we had no scruple about doing It
how much ensler it would be for all of us
to get rich! The necessity of paying what
we owe makes a constant drain on our re
sources; and if we could cheat our credit
or out of half our debts, would not our
bank accounts grow much faster?
The trouble about this plan for accu
mulating riches Is that If we pay only half
of what we owe to other people, we Bhull
get only half of what Is owing to u. It
works both ways, you see. The man who
pays 33-cent dollars will be obliged to take
them also. If you make up your mind
that Bryan Is the candidate to vote for,
you will have decided to take 53 cents of
wages for 100 cents of work. When you go
to your butcher or your grocer with your
M-cent dollar he will give you j3 cents
of groceries or meat for It, and no more.
H Is not going to sell 100 cents' worth for
63 cents. He Is not In business for the pur
pose of losing money. H; lu working for
profits, as you are.
Hence, you see, that, after all, the Bry
an scheme of repudiation could- not help I
you to get rich at a rapid rate, but would
make you ixxirer. Receiving fig-cent dol
lars In wugrs and paying nearly double
for all you buy with them is not profita
ble; but that in a dimple statement of the
Hryan 'plan fur increasing wealth. He
proceeds on the assumption that the repu.
illation of debts will be pottular because
the creditors are few proportionately to
the debtors, nnd that the people wHu owa
mortgages) or otlmr debts will rush to
make an opportunity of paying them off
wilh momy reduced In value about one
half. However that may work fur. tho
creditors, he says, it will be jwpiilur with
the borrowers, who ere ill the great ma
jority. Bui that is not true. The creditors are
In the vast majority. If you sell your la-be-r
yon are a cred'tor to the amount of
the wages you stipulated for. If tho sav
ings hank and the capitalist are to lose
half the amount of tlulr mortgages, you
will as surely lose hfilf the amount ot your
wages In the reduction of their purchas
ing capacity. Ir twice the price must bo
paid for the farmer's produce, who Is go
ing to pay? It must bu you, tho con
sumer. Even If dishonest people want to re
pudiate half the debts they owe, they arn
not so eager for the repudiation of half
the debts owlra to thoni.
Mit. COWKI.I. POIt t ONCKESS.
From the Providence Ueglster.
When, the Republicans of Lackawanna
county placed Mr. William Connell In
nomination for congress tliey put before
tho voters one who holds the conildence
of the people, one whom they know will
be true and loyul and earnest In their be
half. No eulogy, of Mr. Connell need here
be given the whole city and valley bear
marks of his individuality and of his Inter
est In the welfuraof the community an In
terest that lias helped the onward advance
of Scrunton and has tended to help make
thousands of people comfortable. Indus
trious and prosperous. From the strug
gles of boyhood when life had its hitter
hardships for him along to the years when
opportunity was presented that enabled
him to turn the tide of fortune In his fa
vor, and on through these later yeara,
Mr. Connell's energy and practical realiza
tion of true citizenship have been con
stnnlly revealed. The people know him
for Ills philanthropy ; they know him for
his helpfulness In the upbuilding or tho
.city by 'his tild nnd influence in the ln
crense of her Industrial development;
they kvow his work In behalf of tho
churches; they know him ns a citizen who
has the highest esteem of all his fellow
citizens. In electing Mr. Connell to con
gross, which the people of this congres
sional district will surely do at the com
ing November election, they will bestow
upon him but (cant return for tho unsel.
tlsh Interest he has taken In their wel
fare. In his wulk In life ho has been the
friend of all, the helper ofk all, and in busi
ness and as nn employer of labor he has
been Just nnd fair with those who needed
his counsel or employment through th
various channels In which he is so largely
Interested. The thoughtful voter will con
sider all this, nnd as election day draws
nigh there Is the hope that all Lacka
wanna county will be of ono mind and
that Mr. Connell will bo elected by a
unanimity which will proclaim to the
country that thn people of this congres
sional district have tho fullest confi
dence In him as one who will faithfully
represent their Interests In the legisla
tion that Is for the country's good.
FREE COINAGE AN' I) THE FARM
From a Letter In the Chicago Record.
Suppose it costs $15.10 an acre to raise
corn at present, and that tho proceeds from
an acre of corn equal H, entailing upon
the farmer a. net loss of S7.10 nn acre.
With freo silver Mr. Bryan expects the
farmer to receive higher prices. Very
well, we will suppose tho prlco doubles
the farmer then gets $Hi from an acre ot
corn. But If farm products are doubled
In price by tho flat of tho government It
Is natural to suppose that the earnings of
those who have to consume those products
will nlso bo doubled, consequently the
farmer will have lo pay his laborers nnd
his landlord double, und of cours It his
crop doubled In price his seed would cost
twice as much. The cost of raising an
aero of corn would Ihen be $30.:?), leaving
tho tiller of the soil to borrow $11.20 to
pay the balance against him.
HE GOT THE MESSAGE.
An experienced telegraph operator can,
from merely listening to the sounds, un
derstand a message on one kind of tele
graph instrument without seeing it at all.
Ono day an Inspector walked Into nn of
fice nnd 'begun to question the clerk In
charge. Suddenly a message began to nr
rlve and the clerk sat down to write it.
Thn message) Was ns follow:
"Look out for squalls. The Inspector Is
somewhere nlong the line anil will bo pok
ing his nose in everywhere."
The Insjiector smiled as ho listened to
the message, while the poor clerk looked
quilo helpless, ills superior however,
went to the Instrument and pent back tho
answer: "Too la lis. lie has nlreaily poked
his noso in hero." London Tit-Bits.
