Thurston, the corporation lewyer
and purveyor of cheap slanders',
failed to attract any considerable
amount of attention during his late
visit to New York. Tbo lies he
circulated concerning Mr. Bryan
proved a veritable boomerang to
the common good,

Tar Cameron Herald calls atten-
tion to the fact that H. D. Lane and
Commissioner A. J. Rose have is
toed circulars to the planters urging
them not to rush their cotton on the
market. Lane estimates that the
total crop this year will not reach
above 7,500,000 balw, and that the
crop of Texts will not reach 2,000,
000 boles. He «ays that tbe sur-
plus this year is smaller than usua.
when it is compared with the de-
mand, and that this wili bavo the
1 ffect to increase tbe price. He con-
tinues to urge a decrease in cotton
acreage and an increase in the pro-
duct*. Major Rose does not be-
lieve that tbe cotton crop of Texas
this year will excecd a million and a
ba!f bales, and that the entire crop
of the United States will not exceed
7,000,000 bales. The crop opened
earlier than before in thirty years,

All the prosperity even that England'
enjoys was secured under a silver

ard that it conquered Napoleon at
Waterloo, and fought hundreds of
wars in its provinces.
'The gold standard has been and
is now simply for the benefit of the

No people have ever bad a chance to

Under free ocinago, says the New
York Journal, tho United States
Government would establish a fixed
and an unlimited demand for silver
at a price of $1.29 per ounce, pay-
aide in silver dollars. The man who
took to the mint 371^ grains of pure
silver would get a silver dollar.
Tho nupply of eilvor is fixed by
nature, not by mau's activities, and
tho increased demand, au absolutely
unlimited demand, made by a great
and always solvent purchaser, would
instmtly raise the price of tho
bullion to tho mint price. The
silversmith who now absorbs a great
part of iho annual output—nearly
five-sixths, it is estimated—would
then bo obliged to pay the Govern-
ment price. Tho bullion in a dollar
would be wotth and saiablo for ono
dollar everywhere—less the oost of
cart iage to the United States mint.

A Severe Arraignment of th« Opponent* of
ISryftn and Silver.
New York, Sept. 12.—General
Master Workman James R. Sover->
eigu, of the Knights of Labor, has
ustied an address to tbo members of
the order uud to workingmcn gen
orally, urging them to support Mr.
Bryan in the forthcoming piesiden-
tial election. Ho pays a handsome
tribute to the democratic candidate,
and rofers to him as the "matchless
champion of tho people," under
whose standard all workingmen
should unite. Sir. Sovereign han-
dles the gold party without gloves.
"They make u false claim,'' be say?,
"to all the honesty, all tho morality
and all the philanthropy in tho
world. They then charge tho advo-
cates of freo silver with dishonesty,
repudiation and anarchy. They pose
before the world as the ordained de-
fenders and si.viors of tho poor,
down-trodden wukiug people. If
ever thoro wa i a case of stealing the
livery of heaven to serve the dovil,
it ia expressed in the attitude of the
moupy power toward laber at the
opening of this campaign.
'But they dj not stop there.
They put into operation the three
most potent powers known to con>
spiratorg—deception, bribery and
coercion. The oiders already given
by the money power, wtea epitom-
ized, mean : 'Persuade all who will
be persuaded, buy all who will be
bought, and coerce the balauce.'
Their persuaders, their buyers and
their coercers are already in the
field. And tho victim they seek is
labor. Wall street is taking snuff
in the name of labor, and all the
money sharks are sneezing for the
poor working people. From Roths-
child to Mark Hanna, they hold out
a gilded palm to labor.
"Tho money power, 'ii',3 desper-
ation b";i u., .implied throat of dis
etiargo i uposed on employes if they
dare support freo coinage. They
pay employes in silver and then
taunt them with the lidiculous cry
about 50>ccnt do'lars, but they nev
er pay off in gold, for they know
that there is not enough gold in the
country to py off the laboring men
for a sicgle mOntb, if they were all
working for a dollar a day. * 1
The money power is just now
weeping and wailing over tbe lilic-
ulous statement that the wages of
the poor will bo cut in two if we
have freo coinage of silver in this
counlry. Yet from the credit
strengthening act to the repeal of
the purchasing clause of tho Sher-
man law, every statement made to
labor by this combine has proven to
be false. In fact, they have not re-
deemed a single pledge they have
made to labor since the day Christ
scourged them from the temple, and
every one who knows their history
knows that if free coinage would
reduce wages they would be the
first to advocate it. * * * The
workingmm who is willing to sell
himself into slavery rather than suf-
fer temporary inconvenience or in>
cur displeasure deserves to wear
the ycke of bondage."
