-The Idle Currency,
Tlje people who are demanding
jnore .currency an the ground that
n increase of the circulation would
stimulate enterprise and restore bus
iness activity, ignore the fact, if
they are aware of it, that never be
fore was there so much idle curren
cy in the country as at present, and
never were the rates of interest at
the financial centers lower than
now. Large sums of money have
been recently offered in New York
without finding takers at 1 per cent
per annum for three months, and
good four to six months1 commer
cial paper, according to the New
"York Sun, can be sold at from 2 to
per cent per annum. Call money
js nominally 1 per cent, but in
many instances it is nnlendable.
The same condition, jfc appears, pre
vail abroad. In Loudon call money
;s quoted at per cent per annum
and discounts for three njonths' pa
per at a fraction under per cent.
In Paris and Berlin the interest of
money, though not as low as it is in
London, is still much lower than it
has been for years. The banks of
Europe are overflowing with gold.
The Bank of England has $180,000,
000, the Bank of France $350,000,
000, and the Bank of Germany
1$75,000,000. The Austro-Hun-garian
bank also, as well as the na
tional treasury of Austro-Hungary
has accumulated a large amount of
gold to prepare for the approaching
resumption of specie payments in
gold and the establishment of that
metal as the standard of value in
place of silver, to be completed dur
ing the year. It will thus be seen
hat ajl the great nations have an
Abundant supply of money, and that
A great deal of it is unemployed,
though those having it are offering
jt at extraordinary low rates.
A writer in the New York Sun
ays that while the accumulation of
Idle money js unfavorable symptom,
$n that it shows a diminution of ac
tivity in business, it Is nevertheless,
p. yalijable practical refutation of
the fallacy! so often repeated andso
-vehemently insisted upon, that there
;s mot currency enough in the coun
try to meet the requirements of
trade, as well as that other fallacy,
equally often repeated and vehe
mently asserted, that the world's
ptock of gold is not sufficient for its
business needs. The scarcity of
money last summer when the panic
was at jts worst was due to hoard
ing, which the panic inspired, and
t disappeared as soon as the panic
has Bpent its force, ''At no time be
fore -or since," says the Sun writer,
"was there any Jack of the currency
necessary for business transactions
And if at the time enough currency
had been created by any magical
process to satisfy those who ask for
it merely to hide it away in safes
And yaults the stock of it now lying
dle would be at least (double whafc it
js, if not more. That the panic was
not the result but the cause of a
lack of currency is proved by the
fact that in tljree years previous to
it the silver purchases under the
Sherman act had created $150,000.-
jOOO in legal tender notes, and that
the exports of gold to wljich it is as
cribed by some were not as great
flrhen it commenced as they have
been this year without creating the
lightest alarm."" Nevertheless the
Agitation for more currency goes on.
, With hundreds of millions of cur
rency unemployed and no demand
for if; at the temptingly low
fttes of interest at which it is offer
ed, is it not pfcter folly to demand
$ht the supply be increased by the
jddition of a IJiousand million - dol
lars or moref To what proper or
legitimate use could this additional
currency be put? That is a ques
tion which the advocates of curren
cy inflation do not satisfactory an
swer, nor can they. What is need-
I ed is not more currency, but confi
dence that what we have can be
J safely invested, and confidence will
not be restored until the conditions
which disturb and impaired it are
removed. With the tariff disposed
of and the fact settled that the cur
rency is to be let alone there is rea
son to believe that the prevailing
distrust would largely disappear, and
when that js the case there will be a
resumption of business activity. It
would be no help to this result, but
rather the reverse to currency infla
tion. f Omaha Bee.

Ellsworth, Overwhelmed With Tor
rents of Water,
Wind, Lightning and Hail Add to
From the Ellsworth Reporter.
About 1 oclock p. m. Monday, during
the prevalence of a high east wind, the
clouds that had been scurrying over the
city wTere seen to thicken and bank up
in the western horizon. At first everyone
supposed that the blessing of a good rain
was about to be sent upon the section
of the county west of us. while Ells
worth was doomed to another disap
pointment. It was not long, however,
until the clouds assumed a green and an
gry look, and were noticed tobereturn
ing on their track towards the city. This
time they came in a solid, threatening
mass, the edges white and foaming, fly
ing swiftly upward, while dark masses
rolled in beneath, turned white and
sped upward in their turn. Those who
observed the coming storm closely, say
that the meeting of the east and west
winds was marked as plainly defined in
the clouds as it might be marked upon a
map. By 2 o'clock the rain began to
pour down upon Ellsworth, while the
the wind and lightning were frightful in
the extreme. The rain came down in
sheets, and near the ground drifted in a
horizontal direction, sifting into and
through every crack and crevice on the
exposed sides of buildings. The hail,
light at first, gradually increased in di
mensions until the average hailstones
were the size of walnuts; they bounded
upon the roofs and siding like rocks, and
crashed through glass and screens like
bullets. No glass was thick enough to
turn them, even the splendid plate glass
in the banks being smashed to pieces.
In the course of thirty minutes the
water from the hillsides came rushing
through the streetb and soon rose high
enough to sweep horses off their feet.
Barns, outhouses, sidewalks, and awn
ings were swept away and carried again&t
the railway embankment southeast of
town. Even' cellar in the business por
tion of the city was filled, water spurted,
out through cracks and forced its way
through doors until nearly all the first
floors were covered, sometimes a foot in
At the Ballon house the whole force
gathered in the office and sat perched on
chairs, tables and counter, as the hou&e
was flooded. Many fine tn.es were de
stroyed and immenbe damage done to
gardenb, as well as to carpets, plastering,
etc., in all parts of the city.
But the most serious loss of the storm
was occasioned by the collapse of the
two brick buildings of R. W. Long and
R. Ruehl. These two buildings were on
the corner of Doughlas avenue and 2nd
street, and together occupied a frontage
of of fifty feet and a depth of sixty feet.
The two houbes were two stories in
height and were practically one. The
corner room was occupied by R. W.
Long, grocer, who carried a stock of no
less than $10,000 in value. Mr. Ruehl
occupied the next room with butcher
shop and store room. Both families oc
cupied the second stories of their re
spective buildings for residences. With
the rush of water down the streets and
into the cellars, supplemented by the
fierce wind, the houses went down like
paper, Ruehl's first and Long's in a few
seconds afterwards. Fortunately the
preliminary swaying and cracking
w arned the inmates and they were ena
bled to escape, yet as by a hairs breath.
Little Ralph Hissem was in Mr. Long's
store, and Mr. Long seized him together
with hib son and hurried them into the
alley. Later Ralph was found up a tree,
safe, sound and undismayed, not even
The w orst of the storm was from two
to five o'clock in which time it was ab
solutely at the peril of drowning that
anyone ventured into the streets. By
eight o'clock the water had bubsided
and the streets were filled with sight
seers and laborers, the one curious to
see what damage had been done, and
the other as eager-to repair it. A large
force of men volunteered to aid Mr.
Long m the rescue of such goods as were
savable. Of course the loss is practically
Most of our citizens suffered more orless
loss, but these petty losses are lost sight
of in the universal sympathy for those
whom misfortune has so grievously in
