Colorado has furnished more

There is considerable difference
between a bank failure and a bank
suspension. The suspended banks
will nearly all resume operations at
an early day, and many of them
have already done so. Their em
barrassment is only temporary, and
has been due to runs which were
The workingmen were told last
summer and fall that the inevitable
result of the success of the demo
cratic party would be a reduction of
wages. They laughed at the pre
diction, and declared their unions
would keep their compensation up
to the old standard. How is it now?
The McKinley law, it is true is still
in force, but the apprehension of
its repeal has alarmed manufacturers
in nearly every branch of business,
and the gloomy prospects is that
the workingmen will have to accept
the alternative of lower wages or
absolute idleness. N. Y. .Record,
Silver is one of our products, but
by no means the most important.
Appraising the silver mined in the
United States in 1892 at ninety
cents an ounce, the value of the
product was less than one-eleventh
of the value of the corn crop ($600,
000,000); and coal, cotton, wheat,
eggs and pig iron all outranked sil
ver very considerably. There are
thousands of iron miners that are
out of work to-day because the
price of iron is so low that the
mines can not run profitably. Why
may they not as justly ask congress
for aid as the fewer silver mines?
Ix Senator Manderson's opinion
the first thing for congress to do is
to pass a joint resolution that the
government will keep every paper
dollar on a parity with gold, which
of itself would go along ways to
restore conficence so far as the
money situation is concerned.
Speaking of standards, Senator
Manderson says he is not in favor
of a double "standard," but of a
double "basis." and declares his be
lief in free coinage of silver with a
change of the ratio. And, lastly,
he does not think that the Sherman
purchasing act has had much to do
with the present condition of affairs.
Auditor Moore has visited Chi
cago and made a personal inspection
of the situation at the Nebraska
building. As a result he finds that
his conclusions of extravagance
were correct, and in support thereof
gives a list of employees (most of
them useless) employed at large
salary expense, that are eating up
the appropriation at the expense
of the exhibit which never came.
These salaries amount to .nearly
twenty-five hundred dollars a month
which any person knjws is twice
too much, and these figures do not
include the salary of the commis
sioners general. The only conclu
sion is that Garneau is incompetent,
a spendthrift, and a rogue to boot.
The latest suggestion of relief to
the silver owners by . recalling all
paper money o less'-' denomination
than $5 in " order to enlarge the
circulation of silver coins will hardly
be received with approval in many
quarters. While it is true that the
government paper issues in Eng
land, France and Germany seldom
appear in denominations that small,
yet many people view our employ
ment of small bills as a great im
provement over the European
system. The principle of Gresham's
law that every one will endeavor to
part with the poorest money in his
possession first was never better il
lustrated than in the present rela
tive distribution of small bills and
silver coin. It is always the weaker
party to a transaction who has the
less desirable money thrust upon
him. So in the east retail business
is conducted almost entirely with
small bills and whenever a silver
dollar is obtained it hurriedly passed
on to the next person demanding
change. By a process of this kind
the bulk of the country's silver coin
lias been shoved along until it is
massed in the west where all minor
