Life in Eastern Bengal.
In 1857 it occurred to Dr. Palmer
at Ghazipur to treat malarial fever
with anarcotine derived from crude
6pium instead of with quinine. He
was remarkably successful, and the
drug is now in common uhe as as an-
tiperiodic. But the characteristic of
Indian opium is the preponderance
in it of precisely this element. Can
we, then, infer that opimin is a pro-
phylactic against malarial fefcr? To
a certain extent we can, for statistics
show that those who take flaily 45
grains and upwat ls of o-4um take
enough anarcotine thereby t,.protect
them absolutely malarial
poison, while any u e gITaig over 16
grains will be more or less fortified.
It may be mentioned, also, that the
morphine element contributes its
share as a prophylactic. In the
light of these facts it is interesting
to note that in many districts opium
consumption bears a close relation to
the greater or less prevalence of ma-

A BUSIN S IN
BI JULIAN OORBETT,
Author of "Te Fall of Asward," "Cophet-

(Copyright. 1895, by American Press Associa-
56 it was settled as the last chance,
and now he was leaning easily over the
rail alone, waiting for the boat. It was
heavily manned, both with seamen and
marines: In the stern sheets sat an offi-
cer, but the men were all talking in a
disorderly way, as if he were not there.
"Sorry to give so much trouble, gen-
tleimex&" sald the skipper as the boat
ranged alongside. "We were in a hurry
and didn't want to stop. 'We are the
Content of New Providence in the Unit-
ed States of America, with tobacco
from Santander to Newhaven. "
"Are you?" said the officer as he
climbed on board. "We'll see about
that. Where are your papers?"
He was a thin faced man, with a
threadbare, florid complexion, and al-
though he still wore the uniform of a
ship's ensign, the lowest grade of officer
in the French service, his hair was al-
inost white. It was no wouaer to tind
in his face a look of settled disappoint-
ment, which gave him an air of being
weary of the world. And yet his hollow
cheeks were scored with thin lines that
curved about the month, as if from in-
cessant smiling, but so hard and mo-
tionless were they now that the face
was like a mask.
While the skipper was producing his
papers the Frenchmen were hustling the
Content's crew forward with savage
roughness. The officer gave them a sharp
order to use more civility and then
turned toward Dunk, as if anxious not
to see whether his commands were
obeyed. As it was, they paid no atten-
tion whatever, but their contempt for
his authority seemed to cause him no
concern. He took Dunk's papers and
glanced through them quickly till he
came upon the American register.
"Very pretty," says he when he had
read it carefully. "How much a dozen?"
and he tossed it to one of his men.
"Any sickness?" he asked.
"Nothing to speak of," replied the
skipper coolly. "On6 case of smallpox;
that is all"
For a moment the old ensign looked
keenly in his face with some concern,
and then he said as before:
"Smallpox Very pretty too. How
much a dozen?' and the men about him
laughed at his humor.
P e was olearty not new to tie work.
'Now, where are your passengers?" he
"I said tobacco," objected Dunk.
"My orders were passengers," replied
the Frenchman. "Captain and passen-
gers to come aboard with me; crew to
remain under guard on the lugger, and
to bring her under our stern for towing.
So, smartly now. You have wasted
enough of the republic's time already,
and she's desperate busy just now, what
with Chonans and English, and wants
it all "
With such a man concealment was ob-
viouslyuseless. Dunk gave in and went
to the cuddy.
Lucile and Aymon came out first.
She was leaning on his arm, quite calm,
for he had made a careful toilet, and
was calm, too, resolved, as it seemed,
to act upon the lieutenant's advice, and
take his loss like a gentleman.
The French boat crew began to howl
at them for Chouans and traitors and
friends of England, paying no heed to
the officer's orders for silence. Indeed,
he gave them in a mechanical kind of
way that seemed to expect nothing else.
At the storm of execration Aymon be-
gan to show signs of quailing, when
Curtis' appearance put an end to it.
The unruly rabble of seamen were cowed
at the sight of the commanding figure
in the French uniform and did not
know what to make of it. The officer
went up to him at once.
"Ahal I thought so," said he, touch-
ing his cocked hat genially. "Proud to
retake you, sir," and without more ado
he ordered them all into the boat before
his men could break out again.
On the way to the frigate he contin-
ued very pleasant, telling humorous an-
ecdotes to keep up the spirits of his pris-
oners. They were chiefly at his own ex-
pense, and the lack of self respect he
displayed was a sorry thing to see, for
now and again there was a jarring ring
of bitterness in his buffoonery that was
not to be mistaken. His cynical self
contempt made his facetiousness but
sorry fooling at best, and even Curtis
began to look depressed.
As they neared the frigate the officer
grew more subdued, and at last sank in-
to silence altogether till, suddenly lean-
ing toward the lieutenant, he said in
"There's worse than this. 'Tis worse
to lose your ship. "
"That depends how you lose it," said
"I knew you would say that," an-
swered the officer in the strangest sat-
isfaction, "and quite right too. "
The man's manner made Curtis look
at him, and he found in the settled grin
of the face so bitter a look of melan-
choly that for the moment he was quite
carried out of his own trouble.
"Have you ever lost one?" he asked.
"Thirty years ago," the Frenchman
answered, "my last command. I was a
lieutenant then like you, and now, you
see. 'Twas sheer bad seamanship and
nothing else. I blame no one. Thirty
years next week. Why, you will have
forgotten this in six months. "
"Upon my word," said Curtis, "I am
very sorry for you."
"Sorry! Oh, thank you, there's no
need. Nobody minds me. I am the
standing jest of the service. Thirty
years an ensign! A man must be a fool,
mustn't he, for that?
"Toss oars he cried sharply as they
ranged alongside the Chute des Rois,
but the men tumbled their oars into the
boat without any order, paying to more
heed to his command than he to their
neglect of it.
It was not for long that Curtis could
spare a thought for the poor failure
whose career was such a contrast to his
own. He had something nearer to think
of-something even nearer than his own
ill lick. There was to wonder what
kind of floating hell it was they had
fallen foul of, and what fate was in
store for Lucile, where discipline was
so ill maintained. Once more she was
beside him in the stern sheets, and this
time not shrinking from his touch.
With a hot stirring of his blood that
set him ready for any desperate action
which might be for her good, he felt the
girl's shoulder trustfully against his. It
was as if she were unconsciously lean-
ing upont him for. support, as if her
dread of what was coming was more
than she could bear, and in his strength
her only comfort.
For him it was victory, but no tri-
umph. It told too full a tale of her dis-
tress to leave room for his rejoicing. At
least it was a victory won only to be
worse than lost. The sense of his pow-
erlessness was maddening, and she was
leaning on him like a little child in
pain. He was sure she must know as
well as he what to expect where such
A score of wild expedients were
whirling in his brain. He began to curse
himself for not having fought it out as
she had wished, when suddenly the men
became still and orderly. Instinctively
he looked up the towering swell of the
frigate's side to find the cause, and there
upon the gangway, to his unspeakable
astonishment, he saw the American.
With the quick tact of men well exer-
cised in danger neither betrayed sur-
prise nor recognition. Curtis looked away
at once, and saw Lucile's eyes were
Axed upon the gangway. She was re-
lieved to see so fine a gentleman to re-
ceive them, and she showed it in her
"An extraordinary piece of fortune,"
Curtis whispered in her ear. 'Tis the
man who came to save your mother."
There was light of satisfaction in her
face at his words.
It was Dunk, and the French officer
who helped her up the side, and the
American who gave her a hand in his
"I regret, madam," he said with that
deference she always drew from men,
"I regret this unhappy necessity, but
our orders are more than ordinarily par-
ticular concerning persons attempting
to leave the coast at this juncture."
"But we are from Santander," ob-
"T,'t'lS -..* g, vl ." answered t0
American qu(likly, and in a low voi
"You are all known here. Don't you
see who commands this ship?"
He waved his hand toward the quar-
ter deck, and there they saw Farochol,
fuming and swelling up and down in
the incongruous uniform the convention
had adopted-a great cocked hat extrav-
agantly laced, a blue coat with colo-
nel's epaulets in gold, and for a finish
crimson breeches and boots with yellow
tops. He was plainly in a devil of a hu-
mor, and Curtis looked quickly at Lu-
cile, fearful for the effect the sight of
the ruffian would have on her.
To his surprise he found her erect,
and looking fixedly at Farochol with a
flush in her face and her eyes alight.
Then he was more afraid for her than'
before. Vengeance was written plain
upon her, and Ducket's words came in-
to his ears again-"a devil of a lady!"
The strangest part was, he felt he had
never loved her so much as at that mo-
At first Farochol paid no heed to
them, but continued his angry tramp-
ing, as if he must bo showing his im-
portance and ignore them till they were
reported. Indeed, no one observed them
much, for over tho whole ship was an
air of sullen repression that told its tale
pretty plainly to the lieutenant. The
officers were in groups here and there,
speaking only in undertones, with a
nervous glance at the captain between
whiles. The men were all at their sta-
tions, but standing there like oxen wait-
ing to be driven, and with no show of
alertness for orders. The marks of harsh
discipline were legible everywhere, and
yet the vessel was in a very slovenly
condition, dirty, and still littered with
unstowed stores. The only men who re-
tained a presentable bearing were the
American and the old ensign, whom the
American addressed as Lemaitre.
He had no sooner stepped on board,
after the prisoners, than, leaving them
in charge of the colonel and a file of his
marines, he skipped off jauntily to re-
port to the captain. He seemed quite
unimpressed by Faroobol's truculence,
and approached him with his incurable
levity of manner. He must have woven
some ill timed jocularity into his re-
port, for the next thing that happened
was that Farochol had slapped him on
the head. and that so savagely that the
poor old follow reeled against the bul-
warks and fell.
"Is that the way to report a capture?"
Farochol was roaring out. "Is that the
way to address the captain of a frigate
on his own quarter deck? I'llhave disci-
pline aboard my ship, sink me dead I
Discipline, or make it hell!"
There was an indignant movement
from some cf the officers and a murmur
went round the deck. It was for Curtis
plainer than ever that the ship was sick-
ening for mutiny. Everything spoke re-
bellion cowed by brutality, and the lieu-
tenant knew only too well what a seeth-
ing volcano a ship so governed could be.
Nothing would have surprised him less
than an outbreak there and then, but as
the murmur reached his ears Farochol
slung round and glared along the deck
with a hand on the pistol lie carried in
his belt, like a pirate in a picture. His
eye seemed to seek a victim, and the
muttering died away, but it was only
with an ominous reluct,.icc. Fur awhile
there 'was m( .'?I ,ile,.ce over tjhe vessel,
and then Farochol called his flit lieu-
tenant, and after giving him some or-
ders went below.
Almost immediately he had disap-
peared the murmur recoinmenoed, and
grew till it spread from stem ..to stern.
The men began to leave their stations
and to gather in groups. The officers
made no attempt to check them, seeming
quite well used to having the men roam
about the ship as they chose, with nd
sign of respect for rank or place; be-
sides, they had too much to talk of in
undertones themselves to care for any-
thing else. Angry scowls became thd
portion of the prisoners, and every mo-
ment the situation grew more menacing.,
At last, out of the growing murmur
a high voice forward cried alor;, "To
the yardarm I" But the American gave
them a roar for silence with the full
peal of his voice, and the thing went no
further. Still, the whole air of the ship
was very ugly.
i It was fortunate that, before the metf
could recover their check, a summons
came to the American to attend with
the prisoners, and so they must all go
off to the captain's cabin to learn their
fate, marching two and two between
the bayonets of the marines.
Like his lodging at Brest, Faroobol'g
cabin was fitted up with more show
than taste, but the most remarkable
things in it were two large engraved
portraits that hung on the paneling in
florid gold frames, such as were then
gone out of the fashion. Curtis noted'
them curiously, for they took him back
to his first encounter with the man. But'
now there was a speaking difference,
for instead of being privateers they
were two famous naval commanders.
The lieutenant knew them at once foi
Suffren and De Guichen, the two admi-
rals who, in their time, had so success-
fully disputed with England the com-
mand of the seas, and he found some
small relief from his anxiety in this to-
ken of more respectable aspirations id
the old pirate. Even more remarkable
was the miniature that hung between
them, for it was of his wife, the count-
ess, and Curtis was at pains to place'
himself so that Lucile should not see it.'
The captain was sitting at the table,
with a clerk by his side, as if ready to
take their examination. On the other
side of him was a chair, to which hd
motioned the American. The rest stood
before him in a line, Curtis next to Lu-
cile, and Farochol was scowling at then
with a shifty glance.
"You are armed !" he cried, suddenly
shooting out his hairy hand at Curtis.
The lieutenant looked down and saw,
peeping from a pocket, his pistol, which
they had neglected to take from him.
He took it quietly by the barrel and was
.in the act of surrendering it to Farochol
when Lucile made a snatch at it. The'
nation was sudden and unexUlcted
that she wh ed it clean out tf his
grasp. There was a quick click as she
cocked it, and in a moment she had covi
ered her father's murderer.
Curtis dashed at it instantly to pre-
vent the mischief, and caught the barrel
From Lucile came a little angry cry,
and from the pistol a report that in the"
confined space was almost stunning.
What had happened could not be seea
The place was thick with smoke, anr
Aymon began coughing violently. AU
Curtis knew was that the bullet had
plugged into the deck over FarochoPls
head and that he had the pistol again.
As the choking smoke cleared "the
clerk was seen emerging cautionsly from1
under the table, very white and scared.
The American was in an attitude, with
his hand to his sword. Farochol was
sitting just as he had been, with no
change except for an unpleasant grin of
admiration as he eyed Lucile.
"A chip of the old block," he mut-
tered-at least so must be rendered the
coarse expression he really used-and
then he waved to a sentry, who had
rushed in, to be gone.
As for Curtis, he had seen the look
Lucile gave him for his pains in balk-
ing her vengeance, and there was that
in it which made him a little reckless
what happened next. Had he had an-
other weapon I think he would have
given it to her or used it on Farochol
himself, but there was no help for it
now. He hlad surrendered, and with the
natural instinct of a man of honor he
had intervened to prevent the treacher-
ous attack on his captor. It could not
be undone, and with the air of a gam-
bler throwing up his chrds he flung the
pistol on the table before the captain.
Nobody spoke; dndeed there was no
sound but Aymon's spasms of coughing.
He was sitting exhausted on a locker.
Every one else was watching Lucile.
She stood panting, still under strong
excitement, and looking round wildly
as if seeking a second weapon. At last,
finding nothing to her hand, she threw
up her arms with a pretty gesture of de-
spair and sank upon the locker beside
The lieutenant turned again to Faro-
chol, ready for anything that was com-
ing, and was dumfounded to see the
man glaring at the pistol as it lay on'
Sthe table, his face drawn and" leaden
Sand his jaw hanging like a dead man's.
In another moment he had recovered
himself somewhat and flung out his
dirty finger at Curtis again.
( 'Twas you, then I" his jarring voice
grated out. 'Twas you gave it her. It
Swas the fellow to this one." He made'
as if he would take up the weapon, and
then drew back his hand and let it lie.
" 'Tis you brought my black luck," he'
Sent on. "You gave it her to kill her
I 'Twas not for that she begged it,
sir," said Curtis, in a quiet and serious
His manner was as puinctilionsly' def-
erential as if he were before Lord Howd
himself, and the flattery of it from such
a man was not without its effect upon'
the vulgar privateer. There was percep-
tible in Farochol an ungainly effort to'
play the great man is ho answered.

ordinate part in the history of his conn-
try. He was employed as a bricklayer
at the fortress of Ham when Louis Na-
poleon, whu had been confined within
its walls after his fiasco at Strasburg,
effected his escape. It was Godillot who
lent the pretender his blouse and coarse
woolen trousers and thus enabled the
prince to slip out in this disguise, car-
rying a-boam. on his shoulder, which
concealed his features from the soldiers
on guard. After his proclamation as em-
peror, 1fapoleon II testified his grati-
tude by paying Godillot a large sum of
money and appointing him purveyor to
the army and the military school of va-.
rious articles of outfit, which soon be-

The Kola nut has been used for centur-

and a preventer of fatigue.
Dr. Charcot, the emientt authority on
nervous diseases, prepared a presctiption
from Kola which he v6tnched for as a true
specific in all nervous diseases and a sure
invigorator for the blood.
Dr. Charcot's Kola Nervine Tablets are
prepared upon the above mentioned pre-

imported from West'erl Africa. -

Not knowing the lecturer person-
ally, it would be impossible to judge
of has moral character, but from the
enthtiniasm with which he speaks,
one can not butjudge him an upright
honest man, and too zealous in his
work to consider and weigh well all
he says, for certainly he made state-
ments that are erroneous, not that it
was done intentionally, but through
.zeal and his love of the theme.
; He made the statement that the
amount of liquor consumed in the
United States during the past fiscal
year amounted to 1,140,000,000 gal-
lone, or an average of about 17 gal-
lons per capital. Now think of that.

was so badly frightened that he did

the stump still remains to show
where he fell. Every sleeper was
awakened and pretty badly scared by
the disturbance, but at last all were
quiet, and slept until the sun was
shining bright on the morning of the
Glorious Fourth. With the morning
light came more people expecting to ......

the United States, counting, of
course, women and children, that
could be termed moderate drinkers.
In all probability his figures were
correct, but the error arose in the
as fai as the bridge and return. A
short stop was made at the mouth
of Econfina Creek wheie all drank of
the pure waters of that stream. On
return to the Bluff Rev. Mr. B yant

and mean nothing similar; because a
certain amount of Fan article is pro-
duced, that is no reason why it
should have been consumed. The
country is black enough, but it is
not good taste to paint it even blacker
than it is.
He also lays the cause of the en-
tire trouble at the door of the saloon
keeper. Who makes the saloon
keeper? It is certainly not he him-
self. If it were not for the ones who
buy, there would be no saloon keeper,
for he would not handle liquor merely

tle boat, which v as seconded by Mrs.
B. B. Brown and voted unanimously.

for the sake of handling it. No, the pressing themselves well pleased with
cause is deeper than that; nor can
legislation help it one bit. The
lecturer is from Iowa; he knows what
legislation did for the temperance
cause there. Where there was one
saloon before prohibition was passed,
there were ten after, and where one
drinikei man was met upon the
streets pryor to that law, five were
diet after. Likewise did it prove a
failure in other states. The evil
must.be eradicated farther back than
it has ever been done yet. Human
nature is obstinate, and what a per-
son is told he shall not have, that lhe

Beiiig a lover of dogs; ind having
iade their acts and habits a study,
it is impossible to avoid I pointing to
another error made in the discourse:
"A saloon keeper is like a !ill dog,
always nipping at one's heels." Now
this is certainly a false statement,
both as regards the dog and the
saloon keeper. A bull dog is not in
the habit of attacking from the rear.
It is his nature, being not of a
cowardly turn, to make his advances
in the front, and it is not at all prob-
able that any saloon keeper was ever
seen dogging any man's heels to bring
him into his place of business. The
men who frequent such places need
no urging from the saloon' keeper.
All he has to do is to give them
what they call for, the same as any
other merchant would do.
Being no advocate of drunkeness,
and in fact holding such in as deep
an abhorance as the lecturer ever
could, it would have been pleasing
to have heard some new scheme by
which good could have been wrought
to erring mankind, and it appears
tdat education is about the only way
by which any change will ever be
brought about, and of course that
change must and will be slow in
coming. A VISITOR.

Noneet Farmer Janreno' Views.
There are many reasons for thinking
that free silver is losing ground in Kan-
sas, Nebraska and other parts of the
west, where it has been strongest and
where the people have devoted most
time and thought to this question.
Earnest setu- hbas convinced many farm-
er that the "crime of 1878" is a myth;
that it does not pay to be dishonest;
that gold is better than silver; that bi-
oaetallism 1a impossible, and that there
is nothing bt wind back of the delusive
promles of silverites. One of these prao-
tical every4a~ firr' s, who both thinks
and talks for himself, is Peter Jansen
of Nebraska Hee is not the only one in
hisd sate; for he went to the St. Louis
convention as a delegate at large. He
was pat o6a' t. oomii1ttee oft resolu-
tioi, and here is wha4 he said when he
tanomnoed his vote:
"God hates cowards, and eyory hon-
et man does the same, and, therefore,
on behalf of the Repulhicans of the
great tate of Nebraska, I shall vote for
the resolution which declares for the
gold standard and says just what it
means. The time is past for the Repub-
lican party to straddle this question.
We must meet the issue fairly and
squarely like men. I don't see why we
should be afraid to take the metal which
has been the only measure of value
since these United States begun to coin
money, while even the country from
which I am an exile, half civilized Rus-
sia, is preparing to get on to a gold
basis, and it would not at all become the
most enlightened nation on the globe to
take a step backward and join Mexico,
Japan and China. Gentlemen, we shall
not gain a single electoral vote by re-
training to declare for a gold standard,
but we will lose the respect and credit
of the whole world, whose eyes are upon
this convention, by avoiding to say just
what we mean. The people of Nebraska
are anxious and willing to pay their
debts, but they are not ready to liqui-
date them with a 60 cent dollar. I
trust, gentlemen, the resolution will be
Before Stwarts. Mind Wandered.
Senator Stewart was once as rational
on the money question as are most other
men. On Feb. 20, 1874, he was, as he is
yet, a senator from Nevada, but his
mind had not begun to wander on silver
and the "crime of 1873." He then said:
"By this process we shall come to a
specie basis, and when the laboring
man receives a dollar it will have the
purchasing power of a dollar, and he
will not be called upon to do what is
impossible for him or the producing
classes to do-figure upon the exchanges,
figure upon the fluctuations, figure upon
the gambling in New York. But he
will know what his money is worth.
Gold is the universal standard of the
world. Everybody knows what a dollar
in gold is worth."
It Means uain.
The time has come for choice between
sound money on one side and inflation,
repudiation and ruin on the other, and
the duty of the citizen who appreciates
the dangers of free silverism is to align
himself with the element which is con-
tending for the best interests of the
country. It is all well enough to prate
about the grand old Democratio party,
but it is evident to eatery patriot that
when the Democratic party proposes a
policy which means the destruction of
the country's commerce and a paralysis
of its civilization that moment it should
be overwhelmingly crushed. -Galveston

The STAND RE BAY
Horticnltural a n d Improvement
ORGANTZ D JANUARY. 9, 1892.
Tc purpose of this Association is to Improve tho Country adjacent to St
Andrews ,Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
'lo accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every su-h tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
As TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "ls this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to make improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement,
The Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping,guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
for damages from any cause possiblC to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price of ;ana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'ost of planting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit, and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that.. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable hearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japai. chestnuts, pecans, and .Aany other varieties of fruits and nuts, which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yield large returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
swering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.
R E M E M B E R, the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. CORRE SPO0NDENCE SO LICITE.D.

W. H. 8HA A I,
THE WAIL OF
BOLTING REPUBLICANS APPEAL FOR
SPECIAL PRIVILEGES FOR SILVER.
Their Manifesto Disregards History and
Facts-It Makes Good Bad and Bad
Good-Appeals to Prejudice and Makes
The Republican national convention,
having by a vote of nearly 8 to 1, de-
clared in favor of the gold standard and
against free silver, a number of dole-
gates from Colorado, Idaho, Nevada and
other silver mining states withdrew
from the convention and issued a mani-
festo calling on the American people to
support Senator Teller of Colorado as
the free coinage candidate for president.
In defense of their action in leaving
their party because the minority could
not rule the silver Republicans make
certain statements in regard to alleged
gold standard evils and their 16 to 1
nostrum, which can be best answered
by placing the facts opposite their as-
U1 M. A l UrV s It'stheSimple,
*n Trivial Inventions
and the L That Yield Fortunes
Free Coinage an Impossibility.
The time has come, I think, Mr.
Speaker, when the Republican party
should set its face firmly against the
free coinage of silver except by inter-
national agreement. I have been willing
to do all in my power to maintain as
large an amount of silver as possible in
circulation, and the figures I have given
are proof conclusive that the Republican
party has done its full duty and reached
the limit so far as the free coinage of
silver is concerned, and in the coming
campaign it should be true to its past
record for honest money and give the
great financial enterprises and financial
institutions the stability that can only
be reached by a firm declaration against
a debased currency. Under present con-
ditions the opening of our mints to free
coinage is an impossibility. It means
ruin and bankruptcy to many millions
of people. -From Speech of Hon. J. W.
How Silver Baa leen Treated.
When the "crime of 1873" was com-
mitted, there wasn't a dollar of silver in
use; there was very little in the coun-
try, and on Jan. 1, 1895, we had of full
tender silver $548,400,000 and of lim-
ited tender $77,200,000. How is that
for a metal that had been "stricken
down," rubbed out, expunged, wiped
out? Don't the facts make it plain that
the talk about demonetizationn,"
"striking down" and all the rest of it
is false, fraudulent? That is the way it
would strike plain people.-Chatta-

FISHING FOR SUCKERS.
FREE COINAGE CASTLES IN THE AIR.
The cheap money devil tempts the farmers with promises of prosperity,
but the men he deludes will find that he leads them only to ruin and poverty.
Now, as in the past, the tempter finds willing dupes who will learn, when it
is too late, that free silver prosperity is only a mirage.

DR. ANDREWS' REPLY.
Question, "Shall the United States Attempi
e Free Coinage Alone?"
It is inspiring to listen to the Till-
Smans, Blands and other go it aloners
t when they declare our monetary inde-
rpendence of all other countries and oun
ability to make anything money at any
ratio we may please with any other
s thing. Not all, however, of the "friends
of silver" are ignorant of financial his-
tory or without a ballast of common
sense. Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews, pres-
ident cf irown university, is and has
Always been a warm friend of silver.
f He knows better, however, than to at-
tempt what is clearly impossible. Not
Only that, but he pictures the dangers
s of independent free coinage as vividly
Sas have any of the so called "goldbugs. "
Here is his reply, published some time
ago in the Chicago Record,, to the ques-
tion, "Shall the United States attempt
the free coinage of silver alone?"
"If we take up the metal alone, and
that course results, as I should anticipate,
in the expulsion of gold, we shall have
in the first place a financial crisis worse
than any ever suffered in the country,
this because we cannot in a long time,
even by working our mints day and
night, coin silver enough to take the
place which would be vacated by gold.
Prices would surely fall. Immense
numbers of failures would occur. La-
borers would be thrown out of work.
Altogether a dreadful paroxysm in our
business would be precipitated. Slowly
the gap left by gold would be filled by
the mining and coinage of silver. Prices
would then gradually rise. At last they
would become higher than now, more
and more approaching the Mexican and
"But a consequence far worse than
any of these would be that our passage
to a silver basis would erect against for-
eign exchange between Europe and the
United States just such a barrier as now
exists between Europe and Mexico. It
would annihilate all fixed par between
New York and London, repeating the
terrible inconvenience in our European
exchanges which we suffered in war
times when we were upon a paper basis."
The Silver Mine Oivner's Stake.
Every dollar of cir present silver
coinage was coined on government; ac-
count, and, though the coins are worth
intrinsically only 50 cents, yet they are
maintained at a parity with gold by the
government treating them the same as
gold and making them receivable for all
dues public and private. It is this that
keeps our present silver coinage in cir-
culation alongside of gold, coupled with
the further fact that the amount of such
coinage is under the absolute control of
the government and the belief that no
more will be issued at any time than
the government can maintain at all
times on an equality with gold.
But under free coinage there would
be no such restraint, as every holder of
871Y grains of pure silver would be
permitted to take the same to the mints
and have it coined into a silver dollar
without charge. There would conse-
quently be an uninterrupted flow of
bullion into the government mints from
every quarter of the globe so long as it
was profitable to convert 371Y grains
of pure silver bullion into a silver dol-
lar. The owners of silver would reap a
rich harvest by being enabled to change
50 cents' worth of silver bullion into a
100 cent dollar. Under government
coinage the government purchased the
silver at its market value and then coined
it into silver dollars, and the difference
between the bullion and the coinage
value inured to the benefit of the gov-
ernment, but under free and unlimited
coinage the difference between the bul-
lion and the coinage value would go
into the pockets of the individual silver
owners-Senator .T. C Burrows.

Why Improvements Must Wait.
A Marion county (Mississippi) corre-
spondent writes: "That Columbia will
some day be connected with Hattiesburg
by railroad is not an impossibility. It is
said by those whose relations give them
the right to speak with authority that
Blodgett and other large nonresident
landowners are anxious to develop their
largo timber interests, and to do this
successfully it is necessary that they
should have railroad facilities. They
are only waiting until the agitation of
the financial question ceases. They be-
lieve that the one thing needful to
southern development is sound money;
that when the country is settled upon a
sound financial basis the holders of
northern capital will have no fear that
when they put their money into any en-
terpirse that they will get it back in the
shape of a depreciated currency and 50
cent dollars, as men are loath to part
with their money when the probabilities
are that they will only get half of it
back. "-New Orleans Picayune.
Money Must Have VJne.
Every standard measure must have
the dimension or quality it is designed
to measure. Other qualities are unim-
portant or cf secondary consequence.
Thlie yard must have length, the bushel
measure must have capacity, and the
measure cf value must have value. By
this is nct meant value in use, as the
value of air .ind water, but value in ex-
change, which is the only known value
to political economy. .All talk about
any other kind of value in this connec-
tion is only a shallow attempt. to evade
an inevitable conclusion. It is just as
easy and as rational to imagine a yard
stick without length, or a gallon meas-
ure without capacity, or a pound weight
that-weighs nothing, as a dollar with-
out value. This property of value in-
heres in money as stubbornly as the oth-
er properties inhlere in other standards

The Philadelphia Times says of Sen-
ator Butler's proposition to make the
Mexican dollar and Japanese yen full
legal tender in the United States that
"the proposal to increase the number of
half price dollars only shows that Sen-
ator Butler and those who agree with
him care very little for public or pri-
vate integrity. If the present flood of
debased silver coin is to be doubled by
foreign importation of the same sort
somebody is going to be swindled."
The Philadelphia Telegraph says: "The
silliness of the whole business is further
shown by the fact that not ten men in
North Carolina ever heard of a Japa-
nese yen, and very few more of them
ever saw or are ever likely to see a Mex-
ican siver dollar. "
