Senator Sherman, an avowed .sup
porter of the unlimitcil coinage of
silver, recently said: "I believe
that the silver dollar should be equal
in value to the gold dollar, actually
equal, not merely nominally so by
law. In other words, let the silver
dollar have enough grains of silver
in it to make it intrinsically woith
the gold dollar. As it is, the Gov
ernment buys the silver at a certain
Taluation and coins it aL another
valuation to make n, profit on the
difference." In the case of this
country's silver currency, the profit
docs not go to the Government but
to the contractor. If it went to the
Government, there would be some
compensation to the public in the
operation. As it is, however, the
whole profit is a tax levied upon the
country. And the matter is now
fixed bo that the contractor can turn
the currency over and over every
year, and each time mulct the peo
ple of this kingdom in a large
amount. Not only the contractor,
but every concern having balances
to its credit abroad, can make like
exactions from our long-suffering
people. If the people took their
stand upon the Currency Act, they
could put an cud to this wholesale
"Our attention has been called"
to use a familiar phrase that hap
pens to suit the case to an article
in .Saturday's Advertiser, which
occupation with more important
matters prevented us reading on
that day. The general tenor of the
article in question is an affectation
of jeering at our efforts to promote
political discussion upon (square
issues and in a fair Held in this
kingdom. Such a consummation is,
of course, tho last thing in tho
world the Advertiser wishes. Hence
its bliitllng and sneering. The
illegitimate interference of that
paper's principal owner in the affairs
of this country would be one of the
first tilings to lie exposed in a general
overhauling of national politics.
Our contemporary would (.crve its
masters just as well by keeping btill
as by getting excited and trying to
misrepresent others. It is not
merely to form a party, or to pro
mote opposition to tho present
Government, that our writings upon
political reform, at which the Ad
vertiser pretends to bo cynically
funny, nrc designed to aid in ac
complishing. Wo want to sec the
national business conducted in tho
.light of day, and exposed to the
brightest glare of popular criticism.
Every respectable citizen wants to
sec tho laws faithfully administered
by those sworn to perform that duty.
Nobody worthy the name of a man
will assent to having the statutes of
the country ignored by the Minis
ters of the Crown. If thoso func
tionaries are charged with such
grave malfeasance of ofllco, the body
politic should havo it in power to
compel them to cither vindicate
themselves or resign their positions.
Perhaps there is not a tithe of tho
allegations made against tho present
Ministry which could not be
satisfactorily answered. Yet to tho
most serious counts in the whole
opposition bill, about the only reply
Hint ever emanates from the Atker-
HWJ PKI H.sVw.w WjmITl HIMIMJIUlWlnmmilMUUMllBm
tlfer office, consists in poraonal
ntlnok?. upon citizens singled out,
line and there, from among thoso
supposed to the opposed to tho Go-
eminent, but more partieulaily
against persons suspected of disaffec
tion with the alien dictatorship of
the foster-father of that, paper itself.
Of such a species of political bush
whacking is that paper's article of
Saturday, above lcfcrrcd to. It
attacks somo subject of gossip,
alleged to belong to the " Opposi
tion," for an act of dishonesty in a
ten-dollar rent liansaclion, and in
cidentally casts nasty and unpro
voked elms upon other members of
the community. Is a single petty
case of dishonesty in a private trans
action, then, ground for an assault
upon the character of all on a certain
side of politics? If so, what should
bo said of tho secret jugglery by
which the law of the land was set
aside, so that speculators could in
crease their wealth immensely at tho
expense of the whole nation? Irow
should every upright man character
ize the deception practised upon the
people, and possibly the Government,
by holding out to them false pro
mises of immunity from the evil
consequences of evading the provi
sions of the Currency Act? All
classes of tho community arc now
suffering from those consequences.
It is no wonder the Advertiser does
not desire to have politics stirred up,
when tho true inwardness of such
scandalous transactions would there
by be liable to be revealed. For the
public should know that the paper
named is not the "journal of fact
and opinion " it boasts of being, but
is simply the mouthpiece of a
foreign dictator. The burden of all
its editorials upon domestic affairs
for the past few weeks is sufficient
proof of that.
A PLUCKY COLONIAL.
An authentic story, vividly illus
trating the kind of martial stuff the
liritish Empire can rely upon in her
Colonics in emergencies, is told by
the special correspondent of the
Montreal Witness with the Nile Ex
pedition. It is one of those inci
dents of war which makes ordinary
human nature set the horrors of
that scourge behind the sulphurous
canopy of smoke, and paint all that
is chivalrous, dashing and valorous
in the brightest lights and colors of
the foreground. This story of itself
would sufiicc to refute the notion
feet foith a while ago in a Honolulu
newspaper, that Colonial Patriotism
exists in but small quantity and
rather feeble quality. The incident
occurred in connection with the en
gagement of the rebels by General
Earle's column at Kirbikan on the
10th of February. It is thus re
" Of some 0 Canadians who ac
companied Gen. Earle's column up
the liver and were anxious to go
into the battle of Kirbikan, only
one, II. A. II. Dunsford, was suc
cessful in getting into active service
in that battle. On asking the Colo
nel of the Staffouls if he might be
permitted to advance with the regi
ment, the latter answered that he
was proud of the spirit shown, but
the request was more than he had
the authority to comply with. Duns
ford then asked if he would be
checked if he advanced without per
mission. The Colonel evading his
question gave him to understand
with a smile that he would not in
terfere with his advance The cool
ness with which Dunsford marched
in civilian clothes up tho rough rocky
mountains, and eating dates as ho
approached the foe, attracted the
attention of the soldiers on every
side, and on being asked by u
soldier where his rille was, with
which, by tho way, he was not pro
vided, he said n soldier was carrying
it for him, and true it was, for as
soon as a soldier was shot within his
reach he seized the soldiers' rifle
and accoutrements and began to
extinguish the rebel race."
There was not much fighting in
tho Soudan after the South Austra
lian contingent arrived at the scat of
war. Otherwise that fine body of
men would doubtless have mani
fested to the world what tlio young
lions could do to help tho grizzly
parent. In this connection it is
pleasing to note that the British
Government has decided to pay one
hundred pounds sterling each to
widows of the Canadian voyageurs
who lost their lives on tho Nile ex
pedition with Lord Wolscley, and
fifty pounds sterling to mothers who
have been left in destitute cirenm
btances by the loss of a son who
nccoropanictl the expedition.
