The questions which you ask are predicated upon the assertions of the ap pellant in the case referred to, and it is hardly necessary to discuss the subject until the case is decided. You say, "Granting the authority of these statements and failing intervention by the eupremo court, has congress any duty in the premises?" The first thing to do is to ascertain the truth of the statements, and the second is to learn whether the court will Intervene. It will then be time for congress to act, and in acting it will have befor.e it the facts as ascertained and the reasons as given by the court. The second question also begins with an "if and is based upon an...

In the beginning, the Inter-Ocean says: "Ever since 1897 this nation, on the sur face, has prospered as never before. Farm ers have found eager markets at profitable prices. Capitalists have added to their wealth. Labor has been able to use, as never before, the power of organization to raise wages."

The Commoner. OCTOBER 2, 1903. if High Silver. High Cotton. Within the last few weeks the price of silver has gone up rapidly. This advance has caused renewed activity in the mining industry, and a number of mining companies have already de cided to increase their dividends. This advance in the price of the second of the precious metals has a far-reaching effect, however, outside of the indus try devoted to the production of the metal itself. If silver holds its present price, as there is every reason for believing that it will, the cotton goods manu facturer is going to bo greatly ben efited, and the benefit will extend back . to the cotton producer. Tho old ax iom of "high silver, high cotton," is true in the main, although to make it entirely correct it must be modified and circumscribed by a great many ifs and buts.
