FACTS VERSUS PREJUDICE.
In his speech at Bowlins Green, Ky.
♦he other day. Mr. Carlisle laid down
the following facts to be taken up and
denied by the silver men:
1. There is not a tree ooenag* country

try in the world today that does not use
Bfiver money along with gold.

pausing off the stage of active politic*,
aiul those on which he was a Democrat
were coming forwwrd for settlement.
iNever uomtoa'lly an n*K-i>ei*ieui. per-
htaps he mm In his attitude towards
polttkul parties and political questions
the best example of the hxVepeudeint
in pollt.es the country h is known dur
ing rectal t years. Not a pnotfo^tioutil,
nod therefore an Impotent, independent,
he nevertheless had the to.tependcnoe
which enabled titan to follow a polit
ical principle which he held dear into
or out of nay political party.
Mr. Gresham's conduct of the state
deportment has been subjected to the
harshest criticism both by the Repub
licans and a faction of the Democrats,
but ft should be remembered that this
criticism had for 1U main purpose the
disTedltlng of ei hated administration
and could not have been escaped. This
U equh-J'Ient to saying that the criti
cism was dishonest, and we do not
doubt that tt wad entirely dishonest,
except In the rare 1’nntances In which
it proceeded from genuine “jlncoev,
anxious for the country to be at war
and caring nothing for the issue on
which tt was fought. To every un
prejudiced mao. It seems to us, Mr.
Gresham's course must appear to be in
srriot accord wi'h the best tradition's
of our foreign office, and also to accord
with the demands of Justice. In adopt
ing and follawins this oourse he was
obliged to ignore all the passions and
prejudices by which men have been
swayed during the last two years, but
the courage and patriotism which en
abled him to do thin will not cause hi*-
toi-hnm to put a lower estimate upon
hint and his work .when they come to
write tne rv.«i»ujr of our t.mcs.
HARD on the silvekites.
.These are statements of fact. No
patriotic citizen can desire that the
United State* shall sink to the condi
tion of the stiver stoudard-bc deprived
of the use of gold as money; have the
quantity at its money reduced; hare
the wages of Its working people low
ered. It follows that no patriotic citi
zen, can desire the free coinage of sil
ver unless he has been convinced tbit
the causes which have produced certain
results In inn tty foreign countries will,
If put I'D operuttoD here, have an tin-
tirely different effect in the United
States. The burden, of praving that
free coinage, which ho* not preveuted
nafongl aud Individual poverty in any
oOuntry whore A preya'lls, will in the ^
United States insure nitidnal ore! In-
,1 iv-itTu-.il wealth, therefore rests upm *
those -who urge the adoption of that
p-}™. toy the United States.
It Is not sufficient for them to de
nounce those who oppose their views as
money sharks, terles, blood-suckers
and about everything else that is
wicked. In this tbeve bs neither fact
nor argument, hut abuse only, and
what Is needed to the settlement of this
question is facts and reason. Suppose
that these charges were true—that
Cleveland aud his cabinet, most of the
men to public life who have been roost
fully trusted by the people, a conceded
majority of the .people themselves In
mumy states of the Union, are traitors,
secretly working to the taterest of
Great Britain, or hove been bribed to
betray the mrws Into the ba-nd* of
the "Wall street and Lombard street
sharks’*—suppave, we say, that these
chargwi were true? Who* possible
chance would there be for our country!
Would not its destruction be certain If
its most trusted men and great ma-wes
of fits citizens were so utterly false a«l
It seems to us that the roan wbo ac
cepts these charges «• must have
despaired of hi* country amid be pre
pared for any kind of desperate action.
But they are not true. It Is possible
that hero and there * man willing to
sell bb country to tbs money changets
maty tavve attained to a. pkioe of power,
but most of tho men to tosh public
places, is nvctl as the iiaoses of tho
people, are actuated by a genuine sense
of public duty to taking position on
the currency question. To charge that
those on either side of the question are
trations betrays * narrowmws and io-
tokrutxv of spirit that deprives the
man or newspaper of displaying all
right to a patient sad respectful hear,
When appeals to possion and preju

DEATH OF MR. GRESHAM.
The death of Secretary of Slate Gres-
ham takes from public Ilfs a mao of
a type rather unusual at tbia day and
of vory oonaMemble force. Personally
ho waa very attractive—winning friends
eus iy and holding them firmly; but
era* T*vt In this respect the* he differed
from other men prominent to public
affaire. Ttu-t difference was In the at
titude which Mr. Gresham assumed to
ward political parties. To him they
seemed of far loss Importance them po-
irrtcaJ principles. It seemed to him
therefore, a perfectly proper thing to
pans from one party to the other, or to
oppose tnoasurra favored by the party
with which be trained, when he found
that such action was required by toy
ally to the political principles to which
he had given to bts adhesion. During
bs long conueottoo with the Republl
can party he was to many respects
Democrat, and when he bcoame a Dcm
ocrat to his nileeijoce be remain*1
aome respects a Republican. .His transl
toon from one party to the other wan
natural one, awl came st the time
when the quest'xni on which b* was

It is a favorite argument with the
free coinage men, to prove that the
value of silver to stable; tout the prices
of wheat and silver have gone down to
gether. -Vn ounce of silver, they say,
will buy Just the same amount of wheat
now that it would buy ten, twenty or
thirty years ago. But we have seen
noth nv of thts favorite argument of
late. Wheat has been going up to price
rapidly and Is now selling for thirty
cents a bushed more than It did a. few
months ago,- while silver rema ns at
about the same old price. The same
thing is true of cotton, of labor and of
various other things. They have rap
idly Increased in value, while the sell
ing price of silver has remained toe
same. How can this be true, tf the
nil vert ie argument has any truth to
And If it be true that the demonwi
gallon of s'lver is Impoverishing and
enslaving the world, and particularly
the United States, hotv can the rapid
Increase in wealth to this country—and

prophets, the fiercest of those who de
nounce "the crime of 18*3.' the most
prolific of mournful description* of the

Constitution's own columns that until

monetization of silver.

WHAT OAK TUB SOUTH GAIN ?
tFor many yearn ’It ban been strongly
felt by the people of toe South that the
great need of their section was capital.
They knew their country to be pos
sessed of wealth-producing resources
equal, tf pot superior, to those of ony
oilier country In the world, and saiw
tha-t R remained poor—poorer than any
other melton. They recognized thq fact
thoit the South'* great resources were
not developed because, mainly, there
was not here toe accumulated wealth
—the capital—necessary to set ut work
the developing eoengUw, amd during nil
those years they hoped that dually the
necessary capital -would be brought
from abroad. Every Southern news
paper has been Inviting the capital
the North snd of England to seek this
field of tarestment aud arguing that
there Is oo safer or moral productive
field. Leg Mature*, town councils and
other pubho bodies have been doing
the same thin*. There has been ovl
