THE New York Recorder, a repub-

AN indication of the general inter-

harder than they ever (lid before.
IF indications point to anything,
it is that the national democratic
sound money movement is gaining
strength every day. In Florida no
democrat for a moment contemplates
wavering in his support to the state
and county ticket: but if the great
leaders ot the party declare that it is
a democratic duty to cease support-
ing the Chicago platform and the
candidates standing upon it, the ad-

ON HIS MAJESTY'S SERVICE.
It was one of the autumn fair days in
Lewes, and that is why you could hard-
ly move in the streets for sheep. The
time had come for shifting them up
from the marsh lands, where they had
summered, to the farms of the h:i.hl.r
i.._.1.1. By the c.;tora of Sussex grr.
ziers, it was there, on the fringe of the
forest, the flocks must pass the seven
months of winter and do themselves as
well as they might upon what the up-
land farmers had prepared for their

flocks changed hands, and hero was

side of the busnmc-ssi; graziers who
counted their sheep by the hnudred and
rode on well bred inags fi fur a squire,

ed by the score; graziers in broadcloth
and graziers in smock; greot farmers
and small, somno civilized and sleek,
out of the fat marsh country, and some
rough of clothes and manners, who
came from the uplands. "Wildishers,"
the low '-.:-.r i -v --.'i1" called them, and
the name was not ill chosen. They had
still plenty of the savage to rub off, and
the law they know best was the law of
their "bats," as they called the stout
ash staves that every man carried, as
his fathers had before him, from a time
when laws were not.
Thero were dealers, too, and contract-
ors for his majesty's forces and his maj-
esty's prisons, for, 'wVhat w oith the sea-
men, and the militia, nr1d the French
prisoners, there was. a deal of eating be-

"Dull? Gad, sir; dull don't half say
it. 'Tis an insult to send a regiment
like this down here to hunt smugglers,
with as fine a war across the seas as a
man need pray for. But, God bless the

The conversation that ensued was
suddenly interrupted by the entrance of

said, with importance.

answered the old gentleman.
"He's waiting, Sir Bevil. "

At that a certain embarrassment foil
upon the company.
"I have Jo business with any seafar-

off with you and tell him I'm occupied. "
"Yes, Sir Bovil," continued the wait-
er, "but he bid me say his business was
ter'ble pressing. Justices' business, he
said, and something about news of Cap-
tain Richard, Sir Bevil. "
The old man's face changed in a flash.
"Oh, that's different," he cried.
"Show me where he is. By your leave,
The officers bowed with some con-
straint, and the young squires winked
one to the other as Sir Bevil followed',
the waiter from the room.
He was conducted to the little parlor
behind the bar, and the host's ccurfo-
sied as he passed through, with a know-
ing little prim smile, which did noth-
ing to smooth his annoyance.
"Why, Dunk, you dog!" said he as
soon as he was in the room. "What is

"I hope you be well, sir," answered
the skipper demurely, "and Miss Geor-

to call people together -for- a peep, as if
it were a show, and so nothing shall be

Curtis was alWay's serious with his
father, and over since he was a boy Sir
Bevil had been afraid of him.
"I beg your pardon, Dick, I'm sure,".
said the old man hurriedly. "What's
the matter with the poor soul?"
"She has no friends, sir, and-but 'tis
too long to tell."
"Of course, of course. 'Twill do quite
as well later. What's to be done now?"
"I want you to help her, sir."
"Certainly, my dear boy, with all
my heart. Take me to her at once."
'Twere better you went alono, sir.
She's in the cuddy by herself. I musf
lend a hand to getting theprisoners off."
"But look ye, Dick, I have no French,
"Oh, that is no matter. She speaks
English better than you and I."
"Well, I'll see what we can do for
the poor soul."
So they :il. I.'rat:-1. the lieutenant go-
ing forward and the u-..g;.-trut, 3&'t to:
ward the cuddy, but they had not gone
three steps before Curtis stopped anf
"By the by, sir," hi said, "I fancy
she is as badly off for money as for
friends. I don't know what she is to do.
Maybe it would bo the kind thing to
offer her shelter in your house till she
can look about her. "
"Well, well, I'll see," answered the
old man, but as he continued his way
to the cuddy there was, unseen to his
son, a very knowing smile on his face,
which reflected a deal of worldly knowl-
"A likely tlTing," he chuckled to:
himself. "No, no, my boy. D'ye think
I have never been young myself? I
know what it is when a boy and a girl
come together this way. You don't fan-
cy I am going to have you caught by ai
little rogue of a Frenchwoman. I know
'em. None of that kind under my roof,
for my boy to be falling in love with.
Damme, I'd disown him." And with
that he stepped to the cuddy.
Sir Bevil l:nocked twice before he
could get a summons to enter.
Lucile had passed a -1' -,pl. -.- night
with her troubles, and having laid down
upon her bunk after breakfast, weary
with watching, had fallen into a heavy
sleep. When Sir Bevil opened the door
she was sitting up smoothing her pretty
brown hair, which, I suppose, is a thing
any woman would do, no matter how
heavily she were preoccupied with sor-
row. Her face was flushed, and wore
the baby look a young girl will have
when startled out of a feverish slumber.
Unfortunately'for Sir Bevil's resolu-
tions it was just the best Jiing to melt
a kindly old gentleman ,and he found
himself making her a ,bow that he had
not meant to be def 'rential. Still ho

it is such a wonder a crowd wili always
be around, so anyone can make from

and from ten to twenty dollars a day

buy an article when it is demonstrated
that they can make money by so doing.
The cream is frozen instantly and is
smooth and free from lumps. I have
done co well myself and have friends
succeeding so well that I felt it my duty

depredations have been perpetrated in
the vicinity of Parker and Pittsburgf on
East Bay, of a more or less serious na-
ture, but the BUOY farm was selected
for the most frequent and serious depre-
dations. Both the house and barn had
been broken into and property taken
away or destroyed, and outrages of an
indecent nature committed, pickets had
been pulled from the fence to permit
the free entrance of stock among the
potatoes and other crops planted in the
field. By keeping up a vigilant watch
the guilty parties were located, and on
Sunday last the proprietor of the farm
secured the services of Officer Sowles,
and together the two set forth to cap-
ture the perpetrators-two lads whose
names are not given out of considera-
tion to the parents. On Monday morn-
ing the lads left home and eluded the
officer, but on Tuesday morning, sur-
mising that they had gone to iney
Point, Aug. Wilson was secured with
his boat and at a friend of the family's
the youngsters were found. Upon see-
ing Officer Sowles they took to the
woods, evidencing their guilt, but were
soon found concealed in the palmettos.
Arrest followed, and during the'return
trip Mr. Sowles ascertained where they
had secreted a valuable breech-loading
rifle and its accompanying accoutre-
ments, and the boys piloted him to the
spot where the things were buried under
leaves, and well-nigh ruined with rust
and exposure. Shortly after, they ad-
mlitted ta'.ing the revolver mentioned
a week or so ago in the BuoY, but as it
was a safety, and had been locked to
prevent accident, the oldest boy said he
couldn't shoot the d- d thing, and
threw it, case and all in the bayou, to-
gether with a fine pocketknife taken at
the same time as the rife. The boys
were brought to St. Andrews and ar-
raigned before Esquire Crippen on
Wednesday morning. The oldest boy
pleaded guilty and the younger not
guilty, though both admitted before
witnesses that they did not know how
many times they had opened and en-
tered the house in the absence of the
family, and also admitted in open court
that at the timd the run was taken they

had cooked a meal and that both had

Justice Crippen did not consider the
youngest boy particepts criminis to the
extent of committing him to the circuit
court, even though the testimony
showed that he took the lead to the spot
where the gun was hid. He was, how-

The Courier-Journal Speaks Its Mind.
The day P ter the Kentucky primar-
ies the Lorv rille Courier-Journal said
"They (the Democrats) have repudi-
ated the only president the Democratic
party has elected and seated for 50
years. They hrve repudiated the most
distinguish d of Kentucky's living sons
and the great..;t Democratic intellect in
the [Uited States. They have spit upon
the fathers of the party whose name and
organization they claim, have pro-
claimed Jefferson an ignoramus, Jack-
son a conspirator, Benton a knave and
Cleveland a traitor. For the faith hand-
ed down through a hundred y-ears of
glorious party history they have substi
tuted a fad rejected by every intelligent
civilization on the globe, and for the
exponents of that faith they have sub-
stituted such apostles of Populism as
Stewart, such exhorters of socialism as
Tillman, such evangels of anarchism as
Altgeld. Saturday's work makes Ken-
tucky Republican for years. Before Sat-
urday Bradlyism was dead, but Satur-
day made it possible for any Republican
to carry Kentucky over a party which
binds itself to the corpse of free silver-
ism. The one thing now for Kentucky
Democracy is that the Chicago conven-

The silver-tes profess to believe that
the mere mr'-ing of 371 grains of sil-
ver into coins called a dollar will in-
crease the commercial value of the sil-
ver nearly f per cent. If this is true.
there is cer-ainly no need of such coins
being made a legal tender, since they
will be readily accepted at their face
value. When money is worth its face,
it needs no authority of law to make it
pass current. If it is not worth what it
pretends to be, it should receive no aid
from laws compelling creditors to ac-
cept it. In either case it is not the gov-
ernment's business to make people take
money that they do not want.
Are the free coinage agitators willing
to show their faith in their profession i
by agreeing to favor a law for the ui -
'limited coinage of silver dollars which
shall not be legal tender? If so. there
will be no objection to such a coinage
system on the part of those who believe
in a sound currency based on the gold
Savings Banks Depositors, Awake!
"All the great savings bank states,
with the exception of California, voted
for the gold plank at St. Louis," sa'ys
the Boston Transcript. "It is safe to
say that the vote for the gold plank
stood for fully seven-eighths of the total
deposits, and perhaps more." These de-
posits, amounting to more than $1,700,-
000,000, are the rainy day savings, as
The Transcript says, of the "toiling
millions" about whom the silverites are
so greatly concerned. The Transcript
adds: "Reckoning their dependents,
these depositors stand for a very consid-

The South's Prospects.
Thlie world's otlok for big crops
is good, but unfortunately this mea is
tlhat the outlook for good prices is
bad. Europe will raise nearly all the
grain her p ople will consume. Thicie
will be little chance for American
grain exported to foreign markets.
Fortunately our wheat crop does
not promise to lbe u usually large,
and this is the cr p that is generally
most in demanit in Euirope. Our oat
crop promises to be large, and ou r
corn crop will probably be unprece-
dented. This threatens disaster iin-
stead of prosperity to the west, that
produces crops that come in compe-
tition with the crops of almost the
But happily we of the south, ex-
cept for our sympatl:y for others, can
look without apprehension on the
prospect of low prices for grain. Tlhe
south will probably produce the
grain it uses, and little, if any, more1
The farmers in thlis section will con-
suine their own grain products. and
it will be immaterial to them whether
the price be high or low.
But the south has no serious conm-
petitor in the raising of cotton.
Egypt and India produce nearly a
third of the world's cotton from year
to year, but so long as the south
steadily produces two-thirds she wi!l
hold in her own hands the key to the
situation. The prospect now is that
the cotton crop will again be small,
and as the visible supply is now
much smaller than it was a xear

SILVER IN BOLIVIA.
The Condition a Kansan Finds In That
Hon. Thomas Moonlight, a prominent
and able Kansas Democrat, who is now
minister to the republic of Bolivia, has
recently written to a friend in Kansas
the following letter:
"I am in a country having for its
financial basis silver. Now permit me
in all frankness and in the spirit of
pure disinterested friendship, and with
an abiding faith and deep love for the
Democratic party, to say that if you
were here or in any other free silver
country you would at once see the mis-
ery and wretchedness caused by a cur-
rency below par value in the commer-
cial world. Clerks in the stores here
who would receive in our country $50
per month get only 40 Bolivians in sil-
ver or its equivalent, equal to about $18
American money and find themselves.
Laborers receive per diem, and find
themselves, from 25 to 75 cents in sil-
ver, equal to about 22 cents in American
money. Mechanics receive on an aver-
age one Bolivian per diem and find
themselves, equal to about 44 cents in
American money. This condition is
true, more or less, of all countries hav-
ing silver for a basis. In all countries
where silver is a basis there exists a
species of semislavery among all the
wageworkers, and particularly among
laborers and farmhands."
Farm Owners and Wage Earners.
The Boston Globe says: "Mr. Henry
George, who is at Chicago looking on,
finds the real basis of the free coinage
movement in the necessities of the
mortgaged farmers of the west. In a
depreciation of the currency, he says,
there is a clear gain for these men. The
depreciation of the currency willanot in-
crease the amount of their mortgages,
but it will increase' the price, in dollars,
of their farms. This will not be because
the farms become worth more, but be-
cause the dollars in which their value
is measured will be worth less, 'and as
most of these working farmers have got
hold of more land than they really want
to use, in the expectation of profiting
by its growth in value, an era of specu-
lation that will enhance land prices has,
to their imagination, a strong element
"The wage earners of the east hold
exactly the opposite end of the free sil-
ver bargain. Mr. George states their po-
sition in part when he says that the de-
preciation of the currency by free coin-
age, while it may increase nominal
wages, will also increase the price of
the things those wages buy, and that in
a general appreciation of prices the
price of labor is likely to lag behind.
But this hardly tells half the story. The
mortgaged farmers of the west undoubt-
edly belong to the 'debtor class,' while
the workingmen of the east form the
great 'creditorclass.' Our wage earners
are (Ci. i itois of the corporations in whose
Dills they work, of the employers who
buy their labor, of the savings banks,
the insurance companies, the industrial
associations in which they have placed
their savings. Indirectly to the amount
of millions of dollars they are the cred-
itors of those very mortgaged farmers
of the west. "
Mr. Hobart's Monetary Views.
In his speech of acceptance Mr. Ho-
bart of Paterson, N. J., the Republican
nominee for vice president, spoke with
vigor and directness on the currency
question. He is opposed to all schemes
to corrupt the present measure of values.
lie said in part:
Gold is the one standard of value
among all enlightened commercial na-
tions. All financial transactions of
Whatever character, all buniuen:s enter-
prises, all individual or corpcrates in-
vestments are adjusted to it. An honest
dollar, worth 100 cents everywfire, can-
not be coined out of 5:3 cents' wc.rth of
silver, plus a legislative fiat. Such a de-
basement of our currency would inevi ta-
bly produce incalc.ulablo loss, appalling
disaster and national dishonor.
It is a fundamental principle in coin-
age, recognized and followed by all the
statesmen of America in the past and
never yet safely departed from, that
there can be only one basis upon which
gold and silver may be concurrently
coined as money, ;and that basis is
equality, not in w ;ght, but in the com-
mercial value of theo metal contained in
the respective coins. This conuinercial
value is fixed by the markets of the
world, with which thegreat.interests of
our country are necessarily connected
by innumerablo business ties which
cannot be severed or ignored.
Great and self reliant as our country
is, it is great not alone within its own
borders and upon its own resources, but
because it al-o reaches out to the ends
of the earth in all manj:ifl dcpartmrnts

Te purpose of this Association is to Improve the, Country adjacent to St
Andrews 3Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growillg Co1unttry.
To 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 tlhe
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants ahd 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 which will naturally be asked will bo: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to make improvements may deposit an appfxinmate 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 pilfurers
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: o.tr of planting Ist
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
It is not extravagan: 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, Japai chestnuts, pecans, and ,,any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almostcertain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to anl-
ewering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.
R E E EM BE R, the Association Lands will be sold on iEasy
Ter~s of Payment; but improvements must lie paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. CORRESPONDENCE 8 O LIC I "'"D.

HOW TO SETTLE IT.
Only One Way Oat of the Silver Question,
Says Congressman Warner.
Ex-Congrssau n John Do Witt War-
ner ,-rPoses ex-Ccugressiaman Richard P.
;Ir-:::4i ,1r a adiFc':ssioni of the money
er-ti:~:; in' the New Yorrk Journal of
J;Jy 1. UJlik, -anyaay can.tcn men, Ml ,.
VWrner has a hiibh opinion cf thle abil-
ity, character anld mrrotives of the silver
people. He think that both the leaders
andl those in the rat-ks of the 16 to 1
army are earnest, industrious, sober and
Uod fearing American citizens, who are
smarting under actual grievances as tc
the real cause of which they are greatly
mistaken. We quote the following as a
part of Mr. Warner's views:
This propo.d law to make people ao-
cot silver is not asked for by anybody
who wants silver. It is jst because
people do not want silver and will not
take it unless com-, lcd to do so that
our fre(e silver friends want a law to
make them take it. The only people
who want the law are, ihcrefore, rot
those who want silver, bat those who
want to g t rid cf silver, cr who, owing
gold and thinking they canu buy silver
more cheaply, want to make their cred-
itors take it instead. It may be said
that, aR to future matteis, we could
make special contracts calling for gold.
CThat is just what they can do rnow in
regard to silver. As a matter of fact, a
large and increasing proportion cf con-
tracts do provide specially for paySmemnt
in gold. It is significant that no one
hears of silver contracts. The reason is
no one prefers silver except for the pur-
pose of forcing it upon scme one else.
The most serious feature of the pres-
ent situation is not so much the predica-
ment in which we find ourselves as the
apparent disposition in both parties not
to take the only way out, which, if I
may suggest it, is to accept tho situa-
tion that theccrarcrc3 of tl:e world has
created for itself, to recognize its gen-
eral acceptance of the gold standard,
and, leaving to commerce the things
that belong to commerce, to resist any
attempt at interference either by our
own government independently or by
any combination between it and those
of other nations.
Personally I believe gold to be far
superior to any other standard that is
even remotely practicable, but if our
commerce preferred silver I should con-
sider it measureless impertinence on the
part of congress to interfere with that
preference. And so, certain as I am that
our commerce finds it mere profitable
and natural to use gold as a standard, I
am all the more opposed to any attempt
by congress to interfere with the natural
course of business. * Bad as would be
the effect of free silver, more and more
of us are concluding that a few years of
apprehension and financial paralysis,
such as we have had, would be more
damaging than the actual experience of
free coinage of silver, a trial of which
would at least establish certain facts
and destroy sundry delusions.

Thel a c"rreacy 'co-tractioni ts.
.Whil the silverit are howling them-
selves hoarse over "gold standard con-
traction of the currency" the people
the fact that free coinage at 16 to 1mu h
would blows the greatest whe stop mias-nh
noiure andof the ag. It workuld put the oun- why
selvestry on a single silver "gold standard, wouldn-
drivolume gold out of us, would keep in mind
invthe fact that fr cowithdrawing loansat 16 to 1
would make it impossible for the gov-
ernment to redeem its paper ,..:' ; it<',
in coin of any kind, would cause the
-," .. ,i of banks by creating a panic
among depositors, and by establishing a
precc dn t for the repudiation of debis
would greatly curtail the operations of
our pres.ut credit system. If currency
contraction is an evil, the people who
favor expansion should vote to sustain
the present system of gold and silver ,
under which the volume cf mo;:-y bhat
increased from $18 in 1873 to $23 at
the. resent time
Why the Price of Wheat Has fallen.
The pretense that the low price of,
wheat is due to the imaginary demon-
etization of silver in 1873 has no basis
in fact. Wheat has not gone brown bo-
cause less silver money is used, for we
have now ever -' ,000,000 in silver
coins -or certificates as against less than
$80,000,000 in 1873. So it is certain
that it is not lack of silver currency
which hcs reduced the price of wheat.
A suggestion as to the real causes
which have made wheat cheaper now
than it was 23 years ago is found in the
British board of trade statist. T', .
show that in 1894 the Ar -..:'.,:. i j.,.
lie sent to Great BIr.n I '. 1i. .. .;
bushels of wheat. In 1873 the Argen-
taie was unknown as a wheat exporting
country, the first shipments to Grent
Britain having been made but a little
over ten years ago. Since that time the
railway systems of the country have
been greatly extended. Immense quain-
tities of the latest and best agricultural
implements and machinery have been
imported, and large areas of very fertile
land have been put under wheat culti-
Daring the sane period the wheat
crops of Russia and India have also
been greatly increased. It is these in-
creased supplies from sources which
formerly sEnt little or no wheat to the
European markets which have gradu-
ally forced down prices. Wheat is cheap
because more is produced than is waat-
ed. Free silver cannot stop th!; c,:pe-
'ition cf South Amer.ican or R]z.i-a:.
vwheati, nor would it bo thlo slightst
benefit to tl) American farmer.

It is really a race between the interests cf the debtors and the creditors of
this country. Contrary to the general supposition, there are not more debtors
than creditors, but four or five times as many creditors as debtors, and, strange
to say, the debtors are not the poor and downtrodden of the country, but are the
comparatively well to do. The great debtors of this country are railroads,
insurance companies and transportation, manufacturing and mercantile corpora-
tions and companies, One-half of the $6,000, 000,000 of mortgage indebtedness of
this country is in the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Massa-
chusetts, and mostly in the great cities of these states. Less than two-fifths of
our total mortgage indebtedness is on farms or "acres." The total number of
mortgages is 4,777,698. Now, who are the "rich" creditors? Depositors in sav-
ings and other banks, and trust companies, and stockholders in building
and loan associations. There are over 10,000,000 of them. There are at least
10,000,000 more who hold life insurance policies or who are members of co-opq'-
ative, fraternal and industrial aid and benefit associations, into which orgaii-
zations they have paid good money. The average amount to the credit of each of
our 20,000,000 creditors is about ,:;,. '. The average amount of each debt is over
$1,800. Poor people cannot give mortgatces of over $ 1,3C0. If free coinage
wins, 20,000,000 creditors will lose air average of about $150 each, and 5,000.-
000 debtors will win an average of about $650 each. If sound curre -y
wins, neither debtors nor creditors will gain or lose anything-except time lcst
while attend ig the race.
As this is a race of an up to date with an out of date boat, and one in
which the -mpathies and interests of four-fifths of the spectators are. or
should be, with the crow in the modern boat, there can b3 but little doubt as to
SECTIONALISM AND FREE b!LVER.
Un-American Attempts to Prejudice the
South and West Against the North and
The advocates of the silver standard
find their strongest support in the
southern and western states, and their
chief arguments are appeals to the peo-
ple of those sections to voto for free
coinage because it is not wanted by the
uorth and east. The attempt to obscure
the real issue of silver monometallism
versus our present system, in which gold
and silver are both used as monuy in al-
most equal amounts, by stirring up sec-
tional hate and prejudice, has been par-
tially successful, so that large numbers
of the citizens of the south and west
have come to look on the people of the
north and east as eunmies and oppress-

velopment of the vastnatio:nal resources
of the south and west is allowed to go
on unhindered by Populist and silverite
attacks on capital the northeast will be
surpassed in the number and nmgnitade
of its manufacturing enterprises.
To carry on this establishmentof new
industries great amounts of capital are.
necessary. And here lies the chief dan-
ger cf the cheap money secti:nalism.
By representing the people of the south
and west as dishonest repudiationists,
who are anxious to cheat their creditom0s
out (f ono-half of their jnst ,',ies, the
agitators for a debased currnicy will
cheek the flow of suirplus capital from
the older states to, the sections where it
is most needed. This will increase the
poverty of the men e ., Ier' now complain
that they are poor, and will tend to
marnmifv their hatred and '.-u--'i- of
the ,peope of tihe north and east. Then
instead of a harmoniou-s union we shall
have continnal strife ..d discord, to the
nrmtual .loss of all par'-' ocf the country.
This is the direction in which t!fe sil-
veritcs are hurrying. Toefi:'ctuaily kil
out this unnational al d anti-"Amrican
sentiment the free coinage agitation
must be routed in Noveember
"Sound Currency" (published at 52
William street, New York) for June 1
contains a very interesting article by
Congressman MicCleary of fMinnesota
on the coina1ge act of 1873-'"The Crime
of 1873," as freqruitly cdsi'Tgated by
the cheap money advocates, who charge
it with the stealthy and corrupt demon-
etization ;o silver.
Mr. McCleary shows conclusively
from contemporary records that the bill,
instead of going through congress "like
the silent tread of a cat," had actually
been before that body for about three
years; that it was printed at least 13
times; that it was carefully debated in
both houses (the debates in the senate
occupying 66 columns and those of the
house 78 columns of The Congressional
Globe), and that with the exception of
the addition of a silver trade dollar to
meet the wishes of the Pacific coast, it
finally passed substantially as intro-
duced. Every important feature of the
bill was fully explained in the original
rIlp.:irt and-afterward in the debates on
the bill itself. Instead of the surrepti-
tious dropping out of the standard dol-
lar just before the passage of the act,
as so frequently alleged, the fact ap-
pears that the standard 4121 grain dol-
lar (or any other provision for free coin-
age of silver) was never in the bill
from first;to last.
Mr. McCleary also exposes with great
clearness the Ernest S.yd r! myth, and
esows conclusively that the a: l'a. tions

WHAT IS MONEY?
It Is Not Only a Measure, bnt a Repre-
sentative of Values.
'Money is not only a measure of val-
Ses, but a representative of values as
well. In this it differs from a yardstick.
The latter measures, but does not repre-
Ssent. Two dollars measures, let us say,
the value of a day's work. It also repre-
sents a day's work. At the close of the
day the workman goes up for his wage.
He wants food and clothing. That is
what he has been working for. But it
would be manifestly inconvenient for
him to receive fresh meat, which might
spoil before he could carry it home, or
other things which he might not be just
then ready to receive, so the employer
gives him $2 in money. That represents
his day's work, and he can exchange it
at his convenience for such things as he
may require and as he requni'.- rLi m.
It is of great importance t.- t\.-. w. rL-
man that the $2 he receives i:..- li- v, rk
shall be good dollars, with the g ;.t.--t.
possible purchasing power. At one time
during the war two gold dollars would
buy as much as six greenback dollars.
No kind of dollar will be of full pur-
chasing power unless it can be readily
exchanged for a gold dollar. The silver
in a silver dollar is worth only a little
more than half as much as the gold in
a gold dollar. And yet at this time a
silver dollar will buy as much as a gold
dollar. The reason of this is that by the
act cf 1890 it is the declared policy of
the United States to keep the silver dol-
lar equal to the gold dollar. And the
government is ready at any time to give
a gold dollar in exchange for the silver
dollar. As long as that continues the
two ntals will be maintained at the
ratio cf 16 to 1. The danger of free
coin;geo is that so many silver dollars
v.,oald be coined that it would be im-
possible to exchange them for gold. The
very instant that happens the silver dol-
lar will depreciate-that is, it will buy
ices than a gold dollar, or only as much
as the bull.ion contained in it is worth
in gold. This is what has happened in
all free silver coinage countries. In
Panama, it is said, there is a hotel
where the r!:nts are ; a day. Recently
a traveler from the United States gave
a -.. goldpiece at that hotel for a day's
board, anid to his surprise, he receive t:
$5 silver dollars in change. The real
rate was ,;,50 a day, and the silver
pieces, called dollars, were, in fact, only
50 cents. Fre .e coingoe would have the
(,_ .. r of drivig gold doil::lr ort of the
United Stateo;. a:nd the oily circulating
money woeuJd be dollars woIrth about 50
cents each.--Baltimore Sun.
Coin Ehalivcy's "'Scientlfl" Money.
"Out cof tho wi- dora of man came the
urse of t./o i&i-:tals for use as money,
these metals to be coined into money at
a ratio in w .;ht ef 10 to 1, or in the
ratio provided from time to time. Tihe
cpl'ion was given by law for the people

ithi t he debtor, the person getting the

tIrolled the de-mad, and as demand
gives value, tl'e supply being limited,
this option to the debtor shifted the de-
nintid from gold to silver or silver to
gold as each increased cr decreased ia
quantity. The debtor used the one most
accessible; so if silver became cheap -
the demand was shifted to it, and this
brought it back to a parity with gold,

flow ridiculous! The idea that we can
have a scientific or just system of money
which gives debtors the option of pay-
ing in twoo or mere metals at fixed ratios!
The chief work of money is to facilitate
exchanges. Who prefers to make con-
tracis in uncertain terms? What mer-
chant would care to give farmers credit
anid to give them the option of paying
in wheat at 'iO cents, corn at 40 cents,
oats at 20 cents cr potatoes at 15 cens
per bushel? And who but the farmers

uncertainties if a merchant were com-
pelled by law to give credit only in this
