PENSACOLA. News: To the people
of West Florida, who know the man,
the nomination of Weeks to the hig.i
and responsible office of governor is a
joke so gigantic,that the nomina-
tion of Watson to the federal vice
presidency pales to nothingness be-
side it.

WHEN Senator Weeks made his
first speech in St. Andrews he paid
his respects in no flattering terms to
"men attempting to run newspapers
here." This and kindred uncalled
for slurs will not aid him in "at-
tempting" to secure the governor-
ship of the great state of Florida.

FOR the purpose of directing special
attention to the importance of open-
ing np and developing a direct trade
between Europe a d the west via
southern ports and to attract men,

[Copyright, 1895, by ARerican Press Associa-
The men were getting noisy over the
cards, quarreling and cursing their luck,
but the ensign's levity took all the sting
from his reprimand and seemed only
to make them worse.
"Better leave them alone," said the
American. "They are a rakehell lot,
and we shall soon be rid of them. As I
was saying, you must permit me to as-
sure you that you mistake the reason for
Captain Farochol's attaching me to
Your command."
"Oh, I don't blame him," Lemaitre
4tswered again.
"You see," the colonel went on, "he
wanted to get rid of my presence. It
overshadowed him. He could not for-
give my having interposed and quelled
the mutiny with my marines after he
had failed. I don't say, of course, that
he is not a strong man. That no ose
will deny, but he has no diplomatic
"It seems to me," grinned Lemaitre,
"'twas a pretty cunning stroke to keep
the young gentleman for a hostage.'
"How's that?"
"La, there, colonel, we all know
what a dangerous man you are with the
ladies." And with that the irreverent old
man poked the colonel's waistcoat with
a boldness of which the colonel had lit-
tle experience.
"You flatter me," he answered cold-
"Not the least in the world," cried
the ensign, unabashed, "and Farcchol
knows it. He wants his new wife to
himself, and small blame to him. "
"I don't understand you," returned
the colonel.
"No? Well, 'tis a part of the yarn
,or left out\vhen you were spinning it
so agreeably just now. But I expect it
should have come in somewhere. Not
br: what the boy," he broke off in his
disjointed way, "will make a better
officer than I. "
The colonel was further relieved at
this point by one of the hands, who
came staggering aft. He was a veryill
looking fellow with a husky voice.
"We wants more drink," he blurted
out. "Me and my mates has got the
cra- ing. 'Tis the iron's as donedt. 'flwo
days of 'em give you the craving liku
hell, so they dcB %
"You shan'; ,e it, yu. drunken
swine!" crie Leniaitre, "Not a drop;
you are\xo full n)\ow'."
"Shan't have it, you"-
"Silence, sailor!" broke in the colo-
nel, and the fellow slunk away.
"Better give it them," the American
went on in a confidential undertone to
Lemaitre. "We can't keep it from them
if they mean to have it. They will hold
a drop more too.'
"Rum soon works i .-, said the skip-
per; "we shan't want to go about these
four hours.''
"How much a d t;:cn that gamo!"
cried Lemaicre, lcoki;)g very cun-ing.
"Peste! I kunovw wh.t you ari after,
skipper. But it wvo't do, minte. The
colonel and I are a very devil's bit to
tackle when we are coupled. "
"'Tis all one to me," answvered th,
skipper, "whether your men mutiny co
not," and therewith he began to whisk
tio a random tune.
"Never mind the skipper," said the
American. "There's no harm in him.
We are old acquaintances, you know, he
and I. Have you got anything more on
board, Dunk?"
"There's a keg of rum in the fore-
castle, sir."
"Tlien oblige me by broaching it.
You don't object, Mr. Lemaitre?"
"You know best, colonel; I'm only
an old fool at best."
When Dunk had served out the liquor
in such quantity as he thought fit, they
fell to their talk again. But it was no
longer with the same pleasant familiar-
ity as before. As the French seamen
grew noisier over the rum so Lemaitre
lost his spirits, and when presently they
aegan to be quiet he showed still more
uneasiness. His jocularity gave way to
a fit of depression, and in spite of all
they could do he must tell them the
whole yarn of how he lost his ship.
It was not a merry tale or a striking
one, being a plain story of shipwreck,
such as any seafaring man has to tell,
and his way of telling the thing made
it no more diverting, for the old man

seemed to feel it as sharply as the day
it happened. The deck of the lugger
was quiet when he had finished.
"CorbleuI" he suddenly said after a
pause. "That won't do. There's nap-
ping forward.'"
"Better permit them to sleep it off,"
said the colonel.
Lemaitre looked at him anxiously,
but took no steps to carry out his own
idea of what should be done.
"Don't any of you gentlemen mean
to turn in?" was all he said.
"Not I," said the colonel. "I consid-
er it would hardly be compatible with
my duty under the circumstances."
"Thank ye, colonel," replied the en,
.sign. "I should take it very kindly if
you kept watch with me tonight. I'm a
poor hand with refractory men, yoe
know. Maybe the lieutenant would like
a snooze, though."
''Better leave the cuddy to the lady,"
Curtis answered. "Do you think she
will be wanting anything before she
turns in?"
"Suppose you go and ask her, Mr.
Lemaitre," suggested the American.
"She would rather it were you, I
think. You are the oldest, you see. "
"There! To thinkof that. I amto go
because I'm not dangerous. Diantro! 11

was nothing else to do for grief so pas-
sionate. So he stood beating his brains
for a comfortable word to say, when the
cuddy door quietly opened.
Lucile had been startled by the scuffle
and the clauk of arms and Lemaitre's
wild laughter, and now was come to
find out. what t meant. Still standing-
in the doorway she could see them all
motionless in the starlight watching
Curtis, and she watched, too, unseen.
"Cheerily!" said the lieutenant at
length. "Take heart, sir. 'Twas not
your fault. The thing was meant to be
from the beginning. Damme, if I think
we should have done it, but there was
'the lady, d'ye see."
The old man only sobbed the harder
for the sympathy. It was very laugh-
able for a grown man to take on so, but
nobody laughed. Every one looked on
as awkwardly as could be, at a loss
what to do next. Dunk perhaps was
more indifferent than the rest, being for
some reason keenly interested in the set
of the mainsail. The sounds of the
Frenchman's grief were bad to hear in
the silence, and at last Curtis dropped
on one knee and patted the prostrate
figure with rough tenderness.
"Come, come" ho said cheerily,
with his head down bTL side the French-
man's. "iYo nnustn't t::ie ii so, sir.
Yi lid yvomu st. Da.iUl,) if you


Wasn't so always, 1 can promise you."
"No, no!" laughed Curtis, to soothe
his mortification. "You command the
ship, d'ye see. She would expect to see
the commander. 'Tis the civil thing."'
Lemaitre looked up at him with a
trace of light in his face.
"To be sure," saidhe, "I'm the com-
mander. She would lik, to see the com-
mander. I didn't think of that. 'Tis so
long, you see, since I commanded any-
thing. But, peste! I doubt I ought not
to leave the deck," he added, with an-
other anxious look the American's way.
"Never fear, my dear sir," said the
colonel affably. "I'll take the helm
while you are gone."
"Well, I'll just step down," said Le-
maitre, and then in a whisper to the
American as he took the tiller, "Keep
an eye open for that skipper; I don't
half like his look."
"Thank you, my dear sir, for the
hint. I had noticed something myself. "
With that the ensign, after a wary
look round the deck, disappeared into
the cuddy. He was gone some time,
finding Lucilo, as most other men did,
hard to leave. There was a rattle of
crockery and glasses below, and that
perhaps helped the wash of the sea
under the counter to keep from his ears
the muffled confusion there was on deck
in his absence.
When the door opened again- all was
quiet as before. He seemed a little sur-
prised as he stepped out to find Dunk at
the hehn, but before he could remark
on the change the American came close
up to him.
"How did you find her?" the colonel
asked, with a show of eagerness.
"A sweet lady," sighed Lemaitre.
"An extraordinary sweet lady, and a
terrible sad one too. Lord I You wouldn't
believe how she takes it to heart about
her brother."'
'Tis curious what a woman will
take to heart,'' remarked the American.
"But I think I cheered her up a lit-
tle," said the other. "I'm sure I did,
and got her to bite abit. She's going to
turn in now. "
"That will do," cried the colonel in
a curious tone, and the words were
hardly out of his mouth before a pair of
strong arms were round Lemaitre from
behind, and the American was coolly
disarming him.
"What's this?" protested the aston-
ished officer. "Isn't it going a bit far?
A joke is a joke, you know, sir. "
"Now, my lads," cried Dunk with
an exultant shout. "Haul on the bow-
lines and heartily. She sails like a lame
duck this way. "
A number of strange figures uttering
a clamorous cheer sprang up from where
the drunken French seamen had sunk
asleep over their liLp.or and the cards,
and Lemxaitre felt himself released. He
turned slowly round, and there was
Curtis taking off his hat in a sort of
grave apology.
"I have lost her, "cried the ensign in
a high voice.
"Well, I don't see how it will work
out much different from that, mate,"
drawled Dunk. "But your loss is our
gain, you know. So don't let's be down-i
hearted. No good crying over spilled,
milk, as the saying is."
"Lost her!" he cried again. "The'
first I have had in 80 years and lost'
her! Well, that's a joke beats alt"
He ended with a scream ef a laugh,
very jarring to hear, and then flung
himself down on a locker and sobbed
like a child.
"Belay, oh!" sang out the mate mer-
rily as the last bowse on the bowlines
was given, and then all was quiet. And
there stood each man of them looking
at the prostrate figure of the Frenchman.
The recapture had been such child's
play that there seemed something mean
in their success. Not one of them but
wished there had been a hearty fight
for it, with a broken head or so to mend
their consciences. All there had been to
do was to release the Content's men, as
soon as Lemaitre's back was turned,
and to drag the drunken prize crew like
logs into their vacant places. The rest
was to surprise a nerveless old man.
The lugger was romping along more
merrily than ever since the bowlines
had been hauled, but that only made the
ruined wretch, by contrast, a more pite-
ous sight as he lay there broken and
sobbing with no one on his side.
"Devil's luck is all such a dirty job
can bring. "
It was Dacket's grumbling voice in
Curtis' ear as he stood behind him coil-
ing a bowline, and it stirred the lieu-
tenant to a more active pity.
"Poor devil!" he muttered, and went
up to where the miserable man had
flung himself. His bandaged head was
down on his arms as he lay prone across
the locker, so that the best Curtis could
think of was to lay his hand gently on
the old fellow's shoulder. Indeed, there

money, not one dollar of which is token
money, and $75,000,000 of subsidiary
coinage. As there Was not $80, 000,000'
of silver money of all kinds in the 'coui-
try in 1873 and less than $8,000,000
full legal tender silver coins, it is hard
to see how "the stock of real money has
been destroyed one-half." Since an in-
crease of $540,000,000 is considered a
contraction of the currency, it is easy
to understand how the crosseyed silver-
ites can believe that forcing $625,000,-
000 in gold out of circulation would
give us more money.
"The bimetallism of Hamilton aria
Jefferson" was the coinage of gold and
silver at a ratio which was as nearly as
possible the commercial ratio between
the values of the two metals. In experi-
ence it was found that whenever one of
the metals was overvalued it disappeared
from circulation, the cheaper money
only being used, so that the country was
always on either the gold or the silver
standard. Under present conditions,
with the bullion value of silver 30 times
that of gold, it would be impossible to
keep gold in circulation, and the coun-
try would go at once to a silver basis.
Americans who favor real bimetallism,

At that echo of his own words to Cur-

turned on his elbow, sniffing away his
"You are very good to me," he said
in a broken voice. "To be sure, if I
have lost my ship, 'tis something that
you have saved your lady."
There was the sound of the cuddy
door being quickly closed, and Curtis
started to his feet. She must have heard
She was so near and the silence so deep.
The lieutenant's tenderness was smoth-
ered in a fit of sharp annoyance that
the old man could have said a thing so
uncalled for, and he abruptly left his
side. It was the American who took his
place, and began administering comfort,
seasoned with justification of his own
Lemaitre assented with a feeble nod-
ding to all the arguments he advanced.
The poor fellow even thanked him for
his fine phrases in general approval of
his character, but ii may bo. doubted *
whether any solid comfort came of it;
and Lemaitre must have been glad whei
the cuddy door reopened and Lucile
came out again.
"You have recaptured .your lugger,
Captain Dank?" she said.
"Some of 'em has been at their tricks;
miss," he answered; "there's no d.i, i.-
ing it."
"How was it done?"
"' 'Twas you that did it, miss, more
than any. You be the luck of the Con-
tent, as we always said, and thanks to
you, my lady."
"It must have been a vastly gallant
action," she said, with a scornful look
round at them.
"Permit me, madam," said the
American, coming to the rescue, "per-
mit me to congratulate you on your es-
"Escapel" she said, with a pretty
shrug of her shoulders. "I don't know
if that is quite the way of it." And with
that she turned without ceremony td
"I am very sorry for you, sir," she
went on. "Won't you come to the cud-

they will need to talk together over
their brilliant exploit without our com-

her arm in his, "we must do what we

"Thank ye, miss," replied Lemaitre,
rising. "I can't find any more use for

may as well turn in."
lTiutE C'ONT'iN.11.1 in
.Impudent Claims of Sixteen to One Shout-
ers at Peoria.
The Illinois Democratic state conven-
tion added hypocrisy and double dealing
to the silverite doctrine of repudiation
and dishonest dollars when it declared
in its platform; "We favor the soundest
and safest money known to man. * )
We demand the repeal of that Repub-
lican and plutocratic legislation which
demonetized silver and reduced it to the
level of token. money, destroying by
one-half the stock of real money. * *
We demand the immediate restoration
of the free and unlimited coinage of
both gold and silver as a standard money
at the rate of 16 ounces of silver to 1 of
gold of equal fineness, with full legal
tender power to each metal." This dec-
laration for free silver was termed "the
bimetallism which was made the basis
of our monetary system by Hamilton
and Jefferson."
Of all kinds of frauds the canting
humbug is the worst. The sincere but
mistaken silverites, who admit that free
coinage at 16 to 1 would put this coun-
try on the silver basis, are deserving of
far more respect .thlu the men who have
the impudence to talk of "sound and
safe money" in coencct>n with their
50 cent dollar scheme. Every man who
is old enough to vote knows that free
silver, with the bullion value of the two
metals at a ratio of 30 to 1, means silver
monometallism pure and simple. This
is the standard of Mexico, China and
India, where its frequent and violent
fluctuations and decreasing purchasing
power testify to its "soundness and
safety." Is that the kind of money the
American people want?
It will be somewhat difficult to secure
the repeal of "the legislation which de-
monetized silver and reduced it to the
basis of token money," since there is no
such legislation on the statute books.
What the Sucker State financiers re-
ferred to was probably the legisla-
tion which since 1873 has given us
$550,000,000 of full legal tender silver

A Great Chance to MakeMoney.
I want to tell you of my wvondorful
success. Being a poor girl and needing
money badly, I tried the dish washer
business and have cleared $200 every

month. It is more money than I ever
had before and I cant help telling you
about it, for I believe any person can do
as well as I have if they only try. Dish
Washers sell on sight: every lady wants
one. The Mound City Dish Washer Co ,
St Louis Mo., will give you all eeoessa-
ry instructions, so you can begi: work
at once. The Dish Washer does splen-
did work; you can wash and dry the
dishes in two or three minutes without
putting your hands in the water at all.
Try this business and let us know how
you succeed. ELIZABETH C.

helped me wonderfully,
changed sickness to health, gloom to sun-

fered. I was deathly sick, had sick head-
aches every few days and those terrible
tired, despondent feelings, with heart
troubles so that I could not go up and

down stairs without clasping my hand
over my heart and resting. In fact, it
would almost take my breath away. I suf-
fered so I did not care to live, yet I had
much to live for. There is no pleasure in
life if deprived of health, for life becomes
a burden. Hood's Sarsaparilla does far
more than advertised. After taking one
bottle, it is sufficient to recommend
itself." MiRS. J. E. SMITH, Beloit, Iowa.

The KolAV nut has been used for centur-
ics by Africans as a renewer of the tissues
and a preoenter of fatigue.
Dr. Charcot, the eminent authority on
nervous diseases, prepared a presetiption
from Kola which he vouched for as a frt t
specific in all nervous diseases and a sure
invigorator for the blood.
Dr. Charcot's Kola Nervine Tablets ard
prepared upon the above mentioned pre-
scription from the fresh mnuts especially
imported from Western Africa.
Kola is not a cure-all. 't is a food for
nerves, brain and muscles and a tonic for
the blood.
Kola Nervine Tablets are absolutely cer-
tain and speedy in their effects. They
cure all nervous diseases, prevent fatigue;
renew failing vigor, give tone to the whole
Kola Nervine Tablets cure sleepless-
ness and the nervous troubles froin which

cases of nervous dyspepsia.
The druggists say the demand for the
Tablet is astonishing. Kola is what the
debilitated want.
Thousands of packages hate been sold:
Good effects were felt at once.
Hundreds of letters say: '"One package
of the Tablets, costing $1.00, has done
for me what physicians, who cost me $100
failed to do."
We absolutely guarantee that no harm-
ful or secondary effects are felt from thd
use of the Tablets.

Dr. A. C. Shrewin is one of the best
physicians in New England. He writes:
"Hotel Pelham, Boston, Dec. 6th, 1895.
-Gentlemen; I am prescribing Dr. Char-
cot's Kola Nervine Tablets for Nervous-
ness, Insomnia, Dyspepsia and Neuralgia,
with excellent results. I have no hesita-
tion in stating that they are infallible in
all forms of nervous diseases. 1h ir in-
vigoratirg properties are wonderful.
Yours truly, A. C. Shrewin, M. D."
Edward Everett Hale, D. D., the famous
author of "The Man Without a Country"'
in an editorial in the Boston Common-
wealth, and later in a personal letter
wrote thus:
"I am assured bv a careful inquiry
among leading physicians and personal

The claim that the bankers have cor-
nered all the gold is another delusion.
The gold in the banks represents the
savings of millions of depositors, who
very sensibly prefer to have their money
in a place where it will be safe and at
the same time draw interest. If the
bankers .ae foolish enough to pay in-
terest on gold loaned to them and at the
same time refuse to lend it out, they are
certainly very unselfish citizens. But
that is not the way they do business.
No banker pays 4 per cent on the gold
deposited with him merely for the fun
of having it idle in his vaults. He is al-
ways anxious to loan it again, and as
all the banks are competing in the loan
markets a corner in gold is impossible.
A monopoly in which at least 5,000,-
000 depositors in national, stat. or sav-
ings banks have a share is not one to

Toe purpose of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St
Andrews aBay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
to accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FivoAcres 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,hl tract shall le a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first question which will naturally be asked will be: "Is 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 possible 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 bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japah chestnuts, pecans, and xjany 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 Buor. 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. CORRESPONDEN CE SOLICIT ED.

Testimony From Nicaragua, Japan, Chile,
Mexico and India-High Authorities De-
clare That Silver Benefits Only Employ-
ers of Labor-Cheap Silver Dollars Would
Certainly Lower Real Wages In This
Country-Small Working Farmers Would
Gain Nothing Unless They Owe Big Debts.
Taxes Would Have to Be Increased.
A couple of weeks ago Mr. Isham
Sedgwick of Richmond, Ind., who is
interested in the Indiana Coffee com-
pany, doing business in Nicaragua,
wrote to the Indianapolis Journal that
the company paid common laborers 40
cents a day in silver and the men boarded
themselves. Their wages at the time of
writing amounted to 18, cents a day
in gold-the company had just sold in
Nicargua a draft for $1,000, United
States currency, for 2,170 silver dollars
-but these same workmen had to pay
85 cents a yard for ordinary yard wide
muslin. Mr. Sedgwick added, "As an
employer of labor I should certainly be
in favor of free silver, but as an Ameri-
can and a lover of my country give me
sound money-a dollar that is worth a
dollar everywhere on earth. "
A few days ago Bishop Thoburn ut-
tered his protest against the free silver
propaganda on account of what he wit-
nessed in India of the injury to the
working people done by a depreciated
currency. Mr. Dun, our minister to
Japan, has spent many years in that
country, where he was in business be-
fore receiving a diplomatic appointment.
He is a cousin of young Thurman, the
author of the Ohio silver pronuncia-
mento of 1894, which carried the Dem-
ocratic party down to the worst defeat
it ever experienced in that state. He is
in Springfield, O., and on Wednesday
he said that Japan adopted the silver
standard about the time we dropped the
silver dollar. The silver yen is now
worth about 55 cents.
Choose Your Wage Standard.

As for example, in United States and
England, where necessities and even
luxuries are within easy reach.

"The laborer," he explained, "gets
that amount for a full yen's worth o:
work, but when he buys anything he
pays for it in the depreciated coin and
gets only 55 cents' worth for what i,
nominally a yen's worth of labor. *
Wages have not gone up and the price o
commodities has not lowered appreci-
ably, while the purchasing power of the
money has been cut in two. Most of th(
Japanese get about 18 cents a day for la
bor, and this goes just half as far as ii
did before."
Chile has in the past 20 years slipped
from the gold standard to the silver
standard and then to a currency of irre-
deemable paper even more depreciated
than silver. The report on the resump-
tion of specie payments made by Min-
ister Strobel shows that the prices ol
imported articles rose just as fast as the
peso went down. The price of the sim-
pler articles of domestic production
rose, but in a lower ratio, and the rates
of wages had also risen, but in a still
less degree. In Valparaiso, where for-
eign trade affects everything, wages had
doubled, but the peso had lost nearly
two-thirds of its purchasing power, sc
that the advance of wages had not kept
pace with the fall of the peso. In the
north of Chile wages had risen much
less, and in the south there was even
less advance. In discussing the mon-
etary situation a Chilian writer said:
"The majority of Chilians have reached
at this moment an unendurable and pre-
caurious situation. Laborers have seen
their wages increased, but their habita-
tions, food and clothing have increased
in the same or a greater proportion to
their wages." It was the loss sustained
by the greater part of the people by de-
preciated' money that drove Chile last
year to resume specie payments on the
gold standard.
In an account of the influence of the
silver standard on Mexico, Minister
Romero said in The North American
Review last year that wages were ris-
ing, but had not yet risen very much.
But he spoke of beans, though a domes-
tic production and an export, as having
doubled. Beans are the staff of life in
Mexico and had risen from 8 to 16 cents,
while wages had only risen slightly.
Indeed, all the advantage that Mexico
is alleged to have secured from the sil-
ver standard is due to the fact that real
wages, wages on the gold standard,
have been carried down by the decline
of silver. Thecapitalists, whether land-
owners or manufacturers, who can pay
wages in silver and sell their products
for gold, have been very prosperous, and
it is the desire to get wages down that
has led some manufacturers and planters
in this country to advocate the silver
standard. Mr. Teller and others who
say that we must adopt the silver stand-
ard in order to meet the competition of
China and Japan mean that we must
cut wages down to the rato,, of Asia.
Official statistics of Indi: show ad-
vances of wages in selected localities
from the period of 1880-1 to 1892 of
about 20 per cent, or a little less; dur-
ing the same period the average increase
of rice, wheat, barley and four kinds of
grain which are consumed at home and
are not affected directly by international
trade was more than 51 per cent. Mr.
J. A. Anderson, a Calcutta merchant,

The fact that a republic adjoins the United States which has th
talimited coinage of silver makes it easy to observe the prac

of the United States, however, know the truth about
that the Mexican dollar is worth just half what ou
either here or in Mexico, though the former contain

clation, mace mris statement in support
of the demand that India should have
the gold standard, or that Eome means
of arresting the decline of the rupee
should be devised: "The largest crop in
India is the Bengal rice crop. * It
constitutes the chief food of the people
of this province. If we take as a basis
of price the description called ballam
we find that whereas, before the rupee
began to fall, the value ran from 1.1 to
2 rupees per maund in an ordinary sea-
son, in the past two years, with fairly
good crops, the price has been 8.8 to 4.4
rupees per maund, while kaserie and
similar cheap grains, used by the very
poorest people, have gone from 8 to 12
annas per maund up to 1.8, and even 2,
rupees per maund. That incredible
hardship is thus caused to the wage
earning classes cannot be doubted."
No one will deny that when our paper
currency during the war depreciated
prices were at once marked up in pro-
portion. In the case of many articles
that advance was greater than the de-
cline of the dollar. But at the same
time wages rose very slowly, in spite of
the immense demand for labor cause by
the transfer of laborers to the army.
There is absolutely no room to ques-
tion the universal fact that a deprecia-
tion of the money unit is at once and
fully reflected in all articles that are
subjects of international trade, that
they are reflected more slowly in articles
of domestic production that do not en-
ter into foreign trade, and that wages
rise more slowly than any prices. In
the meantime, of course, the wage earn-

ers are suffering by reason of the re-
duced purchasing power of their v'a'_os.
The working people in Germany under-
stand this so well that the Social Demo-
cratic party has protested against any
revival of biaetillism. which is desired

only by the great agricultural]
lords and' some of the exporters to Asia.
The substitution of the silver dollar
for the gold dollar here would at once
increase nearly or quite in proportion
to the depreciation of silver the prices
of wheat, corn, all animal foods, sugar,
tea, coffee, cotton goods, woolens, pe-
troleum, coal, iron goods, tobacco, hop
products and spirits, for all of these ar-
ticles are bought and sold international-
ly, and no change we make in our cur-
rency laws can possibly change the real
prices. The Englishman would pay the
same number of shillings for a bushel of
v\heat and the same number of pence
for a pound cf cotton as now, and those
prices would mean about twice as many
silver dollars as now.
If an Englishman pays 3 shillings
fcr a bushel of wheat now h. would do
so after we had gone down into the sil-
ver abyss. But the equivalent of 8
shillings then would be a dollar and a
half, while now it is only three-fourths
of a dollar. The wage earners will not
get their wages doubled, and they will
discover that there has suddenly been a
terrible rise cf prices. As the farmer
will also have to pay double prices for
every article he buys at the store he
will get no benefit from the increased
prices except in the discharge of previ-
ously incurred debts. To the agricultur-
al class, as a hole, this is a far smaller
matter than the demagogues say, and as
all farm mortgages were given within
the last few years, while the decline of
silver has covered a quarter of a cen-
tury, they have no equitable ground for
As a dollar will buy only half as
much on the silver standard as it does
inow all taxation will have to be in-
creased in proportion, and this already
falls heavily upon the farmer.
In view cf those perfectly familiar
facts it is impossible to adequately de-
scribe the stupidity of the wage earners
who are giving support to the free sil-
ver craze. Of all persons in the com-
munity they are certain to lose the most
in proportion to their means and to lose
it the most rapidly.-Journal of Com-
merce and Commercial Bulletin, July 7,

Silver and Prices.
The silver miners want free coinage
to put up the price of their product. The
farmers want it to cheapen dollars.
It cannot do both. If, as the silver
miners contend, free coinage would so
advance silver as to make the bullion in
a silver dollar worth 100 cents, then the
silver dollar would be as hard to get
and as costly to the farmer as the gold
dollar is no- alleged to be. One or the
other class of free silver advocates would
be disappointed in the results of free
Again, the most numerous class of
free coinage advocates consists of men
who think that the so called demonetiza-
tion of silver depressed the price of farm
products, and therefore that free coinage
would enhance such prices.--New York
