Stripped of verbiagw, the propoeitioa is far this jjovemnient to embark in the - Immediate and unlimited coinage of sil ver dollars, each dollar to contain op- ., proximately 60 cents' worth of silver Million; to discard all provisions for ' guaranteeing the concurrent circulation . end parity of gold and silver, and to ' compel by law the acceptance of the new dollars in payment of all debts. ' The object is to reduce the value of - the dollar about one-half, and by forc ing creditors to take this dollar for debts to scale ail existing obligations. The only exception will be where the shrewd creditor has stipulated for payment in gold.

In a speech delivered before a free silver convention at Griffin, Ga., Sena tar Morgan of Alabama rehashed the stale theories of the silver standard ad vocates, and closed his exposition of the free coinage gospel with the declaration that the silverites demanded "eqnal fights for all, special privileges to eone.
