Jen". Davia, President of the Con
federate States, died at 12 :4 a. m.
to-day at the residece of bis friend,
J. U. Payne, New Orleans. The
immediate cause of death was a con
gestive chill, which seized him the
evening before his death. History
will doubtless do that justice to his
meinorj', which the passion and pre
judice of his contemporaries deny.
With his death the last vestige of
the "lost cause" disappears.
Although the President declared
against silver coinage, in spirit if
not in words, this question is likely
to overshadow all others in the pre
sent Congress. The majority of
Congress favors free and unrestrict
ed silver coinage, and they are forti
Jied by the declaration of Mr. Go
shen, Mr. Balfour and other Brit-
bh statesmen in favor of bimetal
ism.' The truth is, the more this
question is discussed the weaker ap
pears the case of the gold standard
men. Their policy is shaped solely
and entirely in the interest of usury,
as represented by men and organ
izations which control credits ; and
tty virtue of their position in. the
monetary world, they are able to
compel debtors to settle in gold or
ita equivalent, although these credit
institutions themselves do not pos
sess and could not possibly raise, if
called to a sudden and general ac
counting, fifty per cent of their own
liabilities in gold coin or gold bul
lion, for the simple reason that it. is
not in existence. The producing
and commercial world is becoming
tired of the gold-sweating process,
and will insist upon a double stand
ard, or bimetalism, on a fixed ratio
of weight between gold and silver.
Thifl will establish an equilibrium
of value and give the death-blow to
usury in its varied ramifications and

The love of money, and the social
triumphs which money secures, no
matter how disreputably or dis
honestly acquired, are destroying
the consciousness of honor and
honesty in the States. And this
tendency of modern society is not
confined to America. It is becoming
universal, so much so that ultimate

bettor to steal than to remain poor,"
will be accepted as the standard of
honesty among professedly Chris
tian uations also.

Equitable Life Assurance Society '
OF THE HOTTED STATES
A SIMPLE PROMISE TO PAY.
From the Xkw Yohk TiMrs, .tunc '-'2, 1SS1).
The Equitable Life Assurance Society has adopted a new form of
policy, which, like a bank draft, is a simple promise to pay without condi
tions on the back. '
From the Chicago Isvr.STin.vrott.
Always on the alert, and ever anxious to give the public the most
advantageous contract in life insurance, the Equitable Life Assurance So
ciety of New York has, in the past, made many advances on old methods
and has been the means to liberalize life assurance in a greater degree
perhaps, than any other organization. It is not at all surprising, there
fore, that this great company now comes before the people with a new
contract, the like of which has not before been known in life insurance.
From the Kkxtucky Kkoistkii, Richmond, Ky.. .Tune 28, 1SS9.
The Equitable Life Assurance Society has, in the past, done more to
create and maintain confidence in life assurance than any other company.
Consequently its business is larger than that of any of its competitors.
Furthermore, it has now taken a step which practically sweeps every ob
jection of the character referred to out of the way. The result, undoubt
edly, will be that thousands of mon who have heretofore lacked confidence
in life assurance, will examine the new policy otfered by the Equitable,
and assure their lives forthwith.
rTrom the Boston Post.
This company has done more than any other to simplify the assurance
contract, and to maintain public confidence in life assurance.
From thoPACiric ITxnKuwuiTim, San Francisco, July 1, 18s!).Jt
The Equitable has already established a world-wide reputation for
liberal dealings with its policy-holders and for its prompt settlement of all
legitimate claims against it, and tlite new policy cannot fail to enhance it
reputation for enterprise and progressiveness in dealing with the subjent.
