THE SILVER QUESTION.
Congressman Warner has pro
pounded a way out of the American
silver difliculty. It is, in brief, as
follows: 1st Suspend the coinage
of silver dollars ; issue certificates
on silver bullion ; said certificates to
be receivable for Government dues,
exchangeable for lawful money, or
redeemable in bullion at market
value for the time being, but not to
be legal tender between individuals ;
when tcccivcd for dues or in ex
change for money, the ccrtilicates to
be issued as part of the volume of
currency, but when redeemed with
bullion they must be cancelled.
2nd Withdraw one and two dollar
legal tender notes and five dollar
bank notes, without reducing the
respective total volume of each, and
substitute small notes issued on
silver already coined. 3rd Rccoin
the half dollar, also perhaps the
twenty-five cent piece, making them
full weight on the present ratio and
full legal tender, and stop the re
demption of all subsidiary coins.
The New York Tribune thinks it
" a carefully matured scheme by
Tildcu and other prominent Demo
crats, by which they hope to escape
on the one hand the total conse
quences of silver coinage, and on
the other hand the fatal disagree
ment within the parly. Limited
coinage is to be abandoned, but in
stead wc are offered limited inflation.
Soft money Democrats may well
look with favor on the scheme, under
which there would absolutely be no
limit to the silver notes that might
be issued. Jt is not proposed to
issue on deposits oi American mil
lion alone. All the silver in Europe
could be brought to the Treasury, as
it would be merely n question of
price." The New Yoik Times
"cannot understand how bankers
and business men can take to this
It depends on the policy to be
adopted by the American Govern
ment, how this kingdom will be
affected by the settlement of the
difliculty there. Had, however, our
gold standard law been faithfully
carrjed out, no mutations or per
mutations of fiscal policy in any
nation under the sun could disturb
the financial equilibrium of this
kingdom. As the law has been
contemned, the public and piivatc
business of the country must bo
conducted in uncertainty, in the
meantime, perhaps only to be over
whelmed witli embarrassments in
the end, when the great fabric of
American finance shall have settled
down to some definite basis.
THE FRENCH MEDICAL SERVICE.
In view of the high rank which tho
French claim for themselves in the
world of science and of their known
fondness for elaborate details of
organization, it might have been
icasonably expected that the medical
and sanitary arrangements of the
French army during tho recent
Asiatic operations would bo of the
most perfect kind practicable. This
is especially so in view of tho severe
experiences of the war with Germany
and the thorough reorganization
which every branch of tho French
military administration is supposed
to have received 6inco that time.
Judging, however, fiom facta which
have been lcccnlly coming to light,
the levcrsc of this has been the case.
Theic have been published, in
Union Jlcdicttlc, acvcial extracts
from the pi Irate letters of an officer
stationed ill Korinoii, dinning the
condition of the troops in that island
to be most deplorable : "Lodged in
miserable Chinese cabins, lying in
the mud, holt starred, insufficiently
clad, and ovciwoikod, the poor men
sickened and died in frightful num
bers. Of 130 men in the command
of the writer, 72 weic tit one time
lying in the straw huts, shaking with
the fever, without physicians and
without medicines. Instead of sul
phate of soda we were given sea
water, and instead of sulphate of
qiiinc, kind words. Of 1,800 men
in Kc Lung in October, between 800
und !)00 only were fit for duty on
Cluistmas day, the other thousand
were either sick or dead. There was
not only a lack of medicines and
other necessities for the sick, but
there was a shoi t supply of provi
sions, and such food as could be bad
was hardly fit to cat."
The medical journal from which
the above infoimation is obtained
remarks very aptly : "It is little to
be wondeicd at that the Crusaders
should have undertaken their wars
without much preparation for insur
ing their health after aniviug in the
Holy Land, but that the govern
ments of modern Europe should
send out soldiers to hot and un
healthy countries, without any
thought as to how they arc to be
cared for when there, does appear
incredible, let such would seem,
in a measure at least, to
the case with the French
BATTLE OF THE BIRDS.
Kuitok Bumxtin: Your closing
remark in your editorial anent
mynahs, "Let the country be wise in
choosing its feathered help, as well
as its plantation labor," has led me
to ask your assistance in procuring,
I care not how, suitable birds for
these islands. The best for all pur
poses 1 believe to be the barn
swallow: it is constantly on the
wing, docs not dcstioy fruit, but
does go for flics, moths, mosquitoes,
etc. The house martin is also a
good bird, and why not introduce a
few bird hawks, and let them and
the mynah and sparrow fight it out.
The swallows and martins can be
brought from California without
trouble, I thiuk. Who will try it?
Thank you, Four Stars. 4
Our correspondent encloses the
following item from an American
paper, it does anything but sup
port the view that, with abundance
of fruit, the pickings of piedatory
"birds would not be worth calculat
ing: The English sparrow is proving a
serious annoyance and a source of
positive loss to the southern fruit
growers, lhu voracious fellow had
previously shown a decided partiality
to ripe grapes and figs, but his latest
feat is the destruction of the blos
soms of the orange trees, One tree
in New Orleans which lias annually
bnrnc from two to four hundred
oranges, and this year blossomed
freely, has been stripped by the
sparrows until theic is scarcely a
dozen of the fruit left upon it. Un
fortunately, at the time the orange
tree blossoms there is no fruit nor
grass seed for the birds to feed
upon, consequently tlioy turn to
orange flowers for food. The in
crease of the sparrow is viewed with
alarm by fruit growers south, and
thcro is little wonder.
A shearing in Kunwis of (100 me
rinoes, a short time ago, was suc
ceeded by a night of chill winds,
and next morning the sheep were
there, but " not the six hundred,"
for 100 had perished.
The way to increase commerce is
to creato it by working up raw ma
terial, tho natural products of the
country, into jnaiketablc forms.
This requires labor, and " the
wealth of nations consists in labor."
Bismarck thinks tho English Sun
day is under too much restraint.
There is no danger of any foreigner
carrying away impressions of that
kind from hore, especially if he con
fines his Sunday walks to Nuuami
and Hotel streets.
Some members of the Interna
tional Typographical Union, at a late
meeting in New York, proposed to
subsidize printers in search of work.
Three cents a mile was the proposed
allowance. Should such an an
merit be carried into effect
but solid typos will be left to man
the cases. The sponges will go for
absorbing the subsidies.
Russian bivadstuifs arc coining
into competition, in New York, with
the home article. Russian Hour,
said to be equal to choice Minnesota
brand, was recently offered at six
dollars per barrel. The wheat in
Canada, at the beginning of April,
was said to be in as good condition
as at the same lime last year. The
Illinois wheat crop, it is estimated,
will be under 10,000,000 bushels,
against 32,000,000 bushels last year.
The widow of the late A. T.
Stewart, of New York, has built u
