THE CURRENCY QUESTION. j
It has been faithest irom our
thoughts to have antagonized the
Chamber of Commerce upon the
currency matter, or to have embar
rassed tho Government in any
straightforward endeavors to proper
ly administer the Gold Act. What
wo have urged was, first, that there
should be unanimity on the part
of both the mercantile guild and the
' Government as to what amount of
'silver, if any, it was yet necessary
to have converted into gold, and,
secondly, that if loss there must be
upon the silver now current, that
loss should bo borne by the Govern
ment instead of by private persons.
A gcntlcmau in whose views upon
this subject wc have hall confidence
from the beginning, assures us that
the object the Chamber becks is
the relieving of business from tho
. embargo of a surplus of unexchange
able silver. If the Government will
not take immediate measures for re
moving the obstacle to business, the
silver must be put in motion by the
business men acting for themselves
and agreeing to treat silver at tho
value for which the Uank can give
gold for it. Such is the lino tlic
Chamber is working upon, and it
rests with the Government to imme
diately decide whether it will pre
vent very serious loss to the holder
of silver, by assuming the' burden
of receiving the silver at par, and
' disposing for golxl of all that the
country is proved not to need.
!tyjlnerc is no room lor uclay on the
part ol the uovcriiincnt, lor it really
seems as if, the business community
is reduced to the necessity of making
the silver circulato at any cosit. The
Government owes more than respect
to the Chamber, for the prompt
assistance tlic latter gave at the
inauguration of tlic Gold Act, in
agreeing that its members should
honor the silver certificates as gold.
This action possibly prevented the
treasury from being drained of gold
on the first day the law was in force.
The following item from the San
Francisco Examine)'' is interesting
'news: "It is stated that a Japan
ese silk merchant, having found the
soil and climate of the Sandwich
Islands suitable for silk-worm rear
ing,, proposes to proceqd thither with
a quantity of silk-worm eggs and
several persons skilled in sericul
ture." So Japan is going to start
an important industry here, as well
as give us labor for our sugar plan
tations. Owing to the low price of grain,
tho farmers of Yolo county have
made pork raising for tho nonco
their leading pursuit. What is
needed at the present' crisis in this
country is a departure into new
Melds of industry. Those once fairly
developed would be a standby at
any time that sugar was low, and nn
additional source of prosperity at all
kftimes. It is a great .risk, as tho
country is now experiencing witli
sorrow, to have all our eggs in ono
r Upon this Christmas Eve, wo
.cordially wish our generous sup-
porters tmtl patrons a Merry Christ
inas and inmry linppy returns. To
motion' is tlic nnniveisary of tho
inauguralion of peace and good will
townid men in substance, displacing
the shadow of those good things with
which our race had thitherto to bo
content. There arc many ways of
being 'innocently merry upon tho
occasion, all of them the antipodes
of intemperance of any kind and
riot. Let those who arc strong
against temptation help tlicm that
arc weak to n purely Merry Christ
inas. Our renders will not complain
that writeis and piintcrs ask leave
to be merry without toil like them
selves, and hence will undoubtedly
witli hearty icadincss excuse the
Uui.uitin from dropping in upon
The business depression here is,
it may bo consoling to state, not
worse proportionately than that
afillcting every other part of the
world. European telegrams signify
a gloomy slate of affairs on that.sidc
of tho world. A. private letter re
ceived yesterday by the editor of
this paper, from Glasgow, Scotland,
says "Dull trade is all the cry
here. Thousands of men arc out of
employment." A Detroit, U. S.,
despatch says a reduction of woges
and forces there has been the order
for some time, until there arc fully
a thousand men out of employment,
" a condition of affairs new to
Detroit." Wo believe it is in tlic
power of our capitalists to mitigate
to some extent the weight of the
depression here, by cmbaiking in
new enterprises. What 6ccms most
disheartening at such a crisis, for a
country wholly dependent upon its
soil, is that so much valuable land
should bo locked up from improve
ment and settlement. A land agita
tion is one of the battles that must
be fought by the People's Party
that wo arc not without hope will be
formed one day here.
