It has always bee current rumor among the, pops that Holcomb was never a good pop.and only embraced the faith for office and now that he has got what ht was looking- - for he wants to turn the party over to the democrats, so as to continue in office.

    1' FREE SILVER; i

    Deliberately Working tor National and Individual Rspallation nnd Bobbery by Means of a Debased aud Depreciated Dollar Their Cry a False One. How do the silver miners expect to

    Profit by the free and unlimited coin age of silver? Through a rise in the value of their product to $1.29 per ounce? Oh no, they are perfectly well aware that no such thing can happen. They don't want it to happen. If It did it would absolutely defeat the object they have in view, for it would make the real, or bullion, value of our silver dollar 100 cents instead of 50 to 53 cents, and it would retain in circula- tion our gold coins concurrently with our silver and paper money on a par- ity of actual value instead of an artifi- cial parity consisting of part value and part credit, as at present Regardless of national and Individual honor, they are deliberately working for national and Individual repudiation and robbery by means of a debased and depreciated dollar, for in such a dollar alone do they see an enormous profit for them- selves.

    Their cry for an increased circulation is a false cry. No one knows better than these men that we now have a volume of money amply sufficient for the needs of legitimate business, and larger than that of any leading commer- cial nation on earth, excepting only that of France. What they do want is to cut the purchasing power of two-thir- ds

    of our money in two, and the exile of the other third by bringing sil- ver down to its bullion value, which would necessitate double the number of dollars to do the same amount of work.

    Nobody knows better than they that neither our congress,, the chamber of deputies of France, the reichstag of Germany, nor the. parliament of Eng- land can, by a simple act cf legislation, create out of absolutely nothing except the words in which the statute is ex- pressed a value equivalent to more than $0,000,000,000. Yet this is precise- ly the miracle congress would have to perform if it attempted, quoting Mr. Bryan, "to raise the value of every ounce tf silver, here and everywhere, to $1.29." Why do they know this to be impossible?

    Because this same statement was made in congress prior to the passage of the Sherman act of 1890. But what are the facts? Speculation forced the price of silver up from 93 cents to $L19, but before the year was out it had fall- en back so far that the average for the year was only 1.04.

    Silver production increased in the United States alone from 50.COO.000 ounces in 1889 to 54,500,000 ounces in 1890

    an increase of 4.500,000 ounces. In IS891 the world's production of silver ncreased 11,075,847 ounces over that of 890, and the price fell to an average of

    IS cents for the year. In 1892 the vorld's production increased 15.980.843 ounces over that'of 1891, and the aver- age price for the year fell to 87 cents. In 1893 the production again advanced jy 12,940,285 ounces, while the average jrice was only 7S cents, the treasury ourchasing its last quota at 63 cents. It must not be forgotten .that during

    ,this period (1890-9- 3) India took 129,-J20.8- 75 ounces of silver for coinage

    xlone, thus aiding enormously in sus-:aini- ng the market, and in spite of this

    unprecedented demand for coinage, a total of 10,736 tons of silver in less than Jour years,- - the price, after touching JL19, dropped like lead to 63 cents.

    After such an experience as this it is jvident that the silverminers cannotan-ticipat- e

    any considerable rise in the value of their product, for they know rhat the offerings, of silver to the treas- ury were largely in excess of the quan- tity the secretary was authorized to purchase eyery month during which the Sherman act was in operation. Al- though Mr. Bryan does not seem to have heard about it, the mints of In- dia have been qlosed to silver ever since 1893, and that vast market is now barred and barricaded against the mine owners. It is quite evident, then, that a rise in the price of their products is not the object they 'have in view. Then what is it? There is a woodchuck in the hole. Let us see if we can smoke him out.

    In the Anaconda copper mine atButte, Mont., and in other localities, they find large quantities of silver mingled with the copper ore. As the copper alone pays handsomely, to mine, every ounce of silver they get costs practically nothing, and is so much clear gain. At Little Cottonwood, in Utah, where the celebrated Emma mine is located; at Leadville, Col.; at Eureka, Nev., and in many other localities, lead ore is mined mingled with silver. It pays handsomely to mine the lead, andagain the silver is practically a bi-- .J product and all clear gain. In every mine in which gold is found in a quarts formation the gold is mingled with the silver, which must be extracted before the gold is commercially available. In this case, again, silver is the byprod- uct of another industry. The census of 1890 shows that the total number of men engaged in the silver mining busi- ness was less than 33,000, and that more than 1C.C00 of these obtained the silver from the ores of other metals as the

    uct or some other mining indus- -try. xnat census r
