is swveeping over the country. The
'-crime," whatever it may have
been, has not been and is in no
inituidiate danger of being recti
tifd. Therefore, if they ate cor
reet in their 1premises, they lead
them to ulsound and illogical con

ironi the untenable position which
they have assumed or advise the
public as to the cause-ascribed
by them to the wrong source-for
the unexpected faivorable chanige
in the financial and general busi
ness interests of the country. It
is not necessary for all to speak at

don't want to, be overwhelmed
with the same kind of unsubstan

Another Plaintive Blast From the
Silver Bugle.
Every ill that flesh or the body
politic is heir to, has been ascri
bed to the "monumental crime ofd
1873." We had suplposed that tihe
catalogue of ills was complle:e and
that io morte could arise or be at
tributed to this sonice. But it re
mains tfr Senator Stewart, the sil
ver magnate of Nevada, to startle
the cou..try with the proposition,
that the "great crim'e" against civ
ilization, clhiistianity, morals and
even liberty itself has been the
prime cause of decreasing the mar
riage relation between the sexes.
The Nevada silver millionaire is
quite positive that only those who
tleal in money are able to get mar
ried and support wives. While
it may be generally tiue that a
muan of means is better able to
rear, support, maintain and edu
cate a family, than a pauper or
tramp, yet it by no means follows
that mnatrimony has decreased or.
even it it has, is it to be attributed
to the cause which he alleges.
The Scnator has an immnense
amount of silver bullion which he
is anxious to unload upon the Fed
eral Tr,asury. An equitable di
vision of this among the poor peo
ple who are pecuniarily unable to
get man ied, would be a more sub
stantial token ofhis coirmiseration,
than the public expression of an
opinion entirely unsupported by
ifacts or figures.
-Private John Alleii, of North
Mississippi, better known as the
intimitable humorist and clown of
the house of Rtepresentatives, has
announced himself as a. candidate
on a frie silver platform, to suc
ceed General James Z. George,
whose term in the United States
Senate expires March 4th 1890,
but whose successor will be
chosen by the Legislature of 1806.
,'Private John" has made an ex
cetlent record and been a very
good member of the House. Lie
has generally voted for the best
interests of his congressional dis
trict, the State anud entire nation
and has always been able by his
witticisms to excite the risibilities
of the llou'se and galleries, but
the people of Mississippi want
something more substantial than
a mere buff'on to represent them
in the Senate of the United States.
Hence, it is quite probable that
"Private John" must either re.
linquish his Senatorial aspirations
or be relegated to the obscurity of
private life, after the expiration of
his present conugressional term.
FINANCIAL SEERS.-The "dead
beats", who loaf on the street
corners, whittle pine boxes autd
make their poor wives support
then., have beeni imbued by the
Creator with a monopoly of finan
cial knowledge, that is in their
own estimation. The astate finan
ciers of the civilized world are
"niot in it" in comiaarison with
these prophetic oracles of finance.
The country is doomed and there
is but one salvation, so say the
street corner croakers and that is
the free coinage of silver. To this
plaintive appea!, the office seeker,
politician and demagogue unites
his piteous wail of lamentation
and the people immnnediately ac
quiesce, in order to be rescued
from the Iliad of woes, which the
prophetic vision of these political
soothsayers, discernt in the dim
vista of the remote future. Free
coinage it is, must andti shall be or
the American shipDwill be strand
ed upon the same rock, upon which
sank into eternal oblivion, the
then bright hopes of the Roman
Republic.
I)EATn FRO3IM BICYCLE COL
LIsIoN.--A death occurred in
Louisville, Ky, several days ago,
from injui .s receivedl in a collis
ion bet ween two bicycles. )Dr. Ed
ward It'alner, a promllinept physi
cian, is the viclim of the collision.
lie was kniocked dlowa, run over
by both rider and bicycle andtl died
from internal hemorrhage in a fiw
hurs. Yet it \is seriously con
telnded by tihose who, indulge in
I his slpeties of locomotion, that it
is entirely harmless. unattended
with danger aind ought not to be
restricted flom the freedom of the
side-walks.
-It is a matter of no signifi
canee that the Colorado Democrat
ic convention declared for free
silver. It certainly would not be
foolish enough to take any action
which would jeopardize the prin
cilpal industry of the State. Free
silwvrism is about as essential
to the.lrosperity of Colorado,. as
the ,proverbial .)utch is to the ex.
istei:ce of Ilollaud.
FALLACIOUS ARGUMENTS.
We hear a good deal of talk
about the "crime of 1873," and
the demonetization of silver, two
strings on which the advocates of u
free silver delight to play, yet if 1'
any person will stop to seriously
analyze the question, they will 1
speedily realize that the act of 1
1873 was considered for several
months by Congress and given L
the greatest possible publicity be
fore it was passed, and that silver 6
has never been demonetized in ati
sense of the word. WVebater de
fines the term "demonetize" as:
"'To deprive of value, or withdraw
from circulatiotn." All who bhan
dlie money, even the smallest quain
tities, know that silver has neither
been deprived of its value, nor ,
withdrawn from circulation; but,
on the other hand, its circulation
has been encouraged by the na
tional government by making it
receivable for all dues, and its I
parity with gold has been scrupu. I
lously aid steadily maintained.
It is only the unthinking people
who accept the arguments, or
rather the assertions, entirely uin
sustained by facts, of the free sil
verites, that silver has been demon
etized, and discriminated against
by the government. The treas
iury vaults at Washington are now ,
full of the white dollars, and the
reason therefor is that the people l
do not want them, preferring i
either paper or gold for the sake
of convenience in the transaction
of ordinary business. The fact is
notorious too, that the coinage of '
silver dollars.has never been sus
pended, the output of the mints
for the month of May having been
$150,180, and the average for each
calendar month of the year thus
tar $170,094. This does not look
as it silver had been demonetized,
or that it had been discriminated
against, or that we are to loose it
trom circulation.
This plain statement of facts
should knock some at least of the
arguments or thel assertions of the
free silverites silly, and cast dis
credit on others they make whihl
trying to boost up free coinage.
So far as the State of Mississippi
is concerned we venture to say
there are not a hundred men in
the Mtate who do not believe in
silver as a part of the curreneý
system of the nation, and who d,.
not desire to see its use continued,
but they want its value preserved.
as it is now, by the guarantee of
the governument, and not destroy
ed, as it will be, if we have free
coinage and the white metal turn
ed loose promiscuously to stand
upon its own merits and alone
without the credit of the Federal
government behind it to n-mtintaiu
its parity witi gold.--[Natchez

On motion of T. 8. Smith the following
was adopted:
Whereas, Owing to the fact that the r
Police Jury gave $4 000 less for the schools
last year than had been given for several
yearn, the School Board of Rapides par
ish finds itself about $6,000 in debt, and
Whereas, It is absolutely necessary that -
a portion of that indebtedness should be
paid out of the funds for the next school
session, thereby necessitating either a re
duction in the number of schools, or in
the salaries of the teachers to be em
ployed for the coming school session,
and
Whereas, We believe that it will not be
practicable to reduce the number of
schools, therefore, be it
Resolved, That in employing the teach- I

er's fund be reduced twenty per cent on

iana, compiled and written by a South
orn author, in order that the children
may learn of the history of our State as
written by one of our own authors.
On motion of S. Blum:

--Much is being said aliboht sf
torts of so called gohl lungs using
- money to advance their interests,
Sand whether this be trtre or not, if
the people think the silver bullion
uowners are doing nothing to asist
Sin this campaign and are Inow giv
Sing io financial assistance, is to
e attribute to them angelihc disinter
Sestedness, which is :lmost ofilen
Ssive to us ordinary mortals. As
long ago as April 30th, 1891, the
e "Salt Lake Tribunn" (mine owners
organ), had the following:
e "We believe that by the expen
diture of $40,000 or $50,000 the
Beards of Tratde of Chicago an:uid
New York, and even old goldite
- Boston, could be made to pases res.
Solutions asking Congress to give
nll recognition to silver. The sil
Sver committee who are working
Sfor silver7 think that with a small
amount of money, used this yeai
right away, they could bring such
a pressure behind Congress and
Sthe President next winter as to se
cure needed legislation. That leg.
e islation would make to men who
produce silver in this territory a
difference of $3,000,000 a year."
What have our free silvertrieands
to say to this statement made four
Syears agol
-If you s!ouId see a manI riding
ralong the road you don't know,
don't ask anybody who it is, and
thereby expose your ignorance
. its a candidate. If a mani rides up
to your house after nightfaill and
asks leave to sta;y a:ll night, tdon't
he aularmed ani( tmake all thie chii
dren get under the bled-its only a
candidate. If you are taking up a
.collection in church antl t man
throws in O50 cents more than you
think hle's got, don't hold to the
back of the bench 1for support-its
Sthe candidate, you know. If the
suun goes down behind a bank of
clouds on Sunday eveninig you are
. sure to have a good shower of can
didates, before Wednesday. If
you get out of bed on the left side
you will see a candidate before you
Sget through breakfast. Don't cut
down any trees in your new ground
at this season of the year; because
you might kill a eandidate, and
we think that's ;'gainst the law.
