Metallic Current J.
W.tsin.NOTO.'i, February '0. t'hair
maii liland of the llotisi (Joinmittee
on Coinage, Weightsand .Measttri-s, has
prepared a minority retiorton the bill
to provide for the free coinage of
silver, which was rciKirtcd adversely
from his committee, and which is now
on the House calendar. The report is
signed by MeHsrs. iihmd, Ijiiili.tiu and
Itynttni.anil starttoir w ith the declara
tion t hat the volume of metallic money
is not subjwt to tho cotatrol of the leg
islator, but is regulated by nature.
Kecognizing the principle that nature
should supply tho volume of money
the only duty that devolves upon the
legislator is to establiHli by law the
ratio of vaJtio for the coinage of the
two metals, and to provide for tho un
limited or free coinage of lsith at the
ratio established. In 1ST.'!, under the
pretext of amending tho mint act,
silver was demonetized, and this was
in conflict with the constitution. If
under the constitution Congress has
tho power to prohibit or limit the
coinage of silver, so it lias that of gold.
As compared to gold, silver is now de
preciated. It is, therefore, claimed
that it will not be in good faith to our
creditors to pay them in silver dollars.
Without goingjinl.) facts and figures, it
is generally udmilted that the bullion
tiik hi i, vim not. i.ak
will purchase as many of the iieces
sitriesid life nt this time, and more than
it would have, done when dropped
from the coinage, and more than in
!K.V, or in ISl'io, or in IS70. All the
interest-bearing coin obligations of. the
government now outstanding were is
sued by virtue of the act of IK70, ex
cept the ' per cent bonds issued under
the act of 1KK1, or since silver coinage
was resumed, and lire payable in
either gold or silver coin ; therefore to
restore the silver dollar and compel
its payment in the redemption of
these obligations would be no viola
tion of contract or of good faith on the
part of the government toward its
creditors. Tho restoration of silver
here will necessarily give a demand
for it that hiw not existed since 1 S7:,
and have a tendency to restore it to a
parity with jrold, and it is believed
will restore it, but whether it be so or
not, it, is insisted that we owe no debt
that is not legally and morally payable
in silver, und even should we go to a
single silver standard no harm would
come of it.
tptotes from Mr. Ccrnuschi's "The
iireat Metallic, Powers," in whieh lie
says, referring to the free coinage of
silver: "Very venturesome would bo
those who should recommend tho
United rttatew of America to under
take single-handed what Franco will
only undertake triplo-lmnded," and
comments upon it by remarking:
This pamphlet was evidently inspired
by Mr. Man ton Marble, who was sent
by tho government to investigate the
subject in Kuropcan countries in the
interest of the goMintonoinetallists, at
the pamphlet seems to have reached
cvi'ry member of Congress, with the
compliments of Mr. Marble. Tho re
jort proceeds to discuss thu question
as to whether it would be safe for the
eountVy to coin silver free in the event
of no change being made in the mon
etary policy of F.uropc, an.l expresses
the belief that lCuropeau countries
cannot further demonetize silver with
out great disaster to themselves.
While the tendency is toward a res
toration of that metal, another ques
tion which must be considered in con
nection with the eoinagv of silver wits,
with what a vacuum created by tho re
tirement of national hank notes was to
tie. supplied, now that the payment of
the public, debt was rapidly going on,
and would even wipe out the founda
tion of national bank circulation.
The government must either issue
legal tender notes to supply it or else
provide, for some other system of
nanking, or else give unlimited use to
silver. .So the question must lie
(airly met, shall this supply be a coin
circulation, or shall it bo credit
money? Tim minority had always
supposed the gold inononietallists were
the peculiar advocates of hard money
hnnist money; that the idea of
issuing paper ltgiil ten. lent of any
sort was dangerous to them. If they
are sincere and honest in their eon
victions, then they should join with
those who favor the restoration of
silver, and demand that such paper
circulation shall give way to the
I'N'MMITUI t'SK Of SII.VKIt A Ml .lol l).
Tht- report goes on to discuss the
possibility of a silver supply being
discovered by which ftMMUHXI.OOO of
silver would be dumped flown upon
the United States, anilourKKW (HHl.OOO
of gold displaetsl and dumped down
in Ktiroean countries, and concludes
that such an (M-currence would tie a
great relief to both hemispheres. The
result, it says, would be un increase in
the monetary supply in Kuropean
countries of gold that would set the
machines of industry in motion, giv
ing thtyettarving laborer of those coun
tries employment and enabling them
to purchase our commoditien. The
silver placed in circulation here would
platv us tiMu a sound metallic basis,
revive industries and put the millions
of laboring men now out of employ
ment to work, giving them bread ; our
revenue would swell, although Uixes.
would be lighter per capita ttKn the
great masses of the people, because a
greater number of them would le en
abled to pav taxes. In this wav our
national debt would soon be a thing of
the past. It may be said that those
owning fixed incomes, government

ami others who have incomes from
those liens, would not receive thu sam.)
amount of labor, or the products
of labor for a dollar they are now re
eeiving, but what they lose in that n-g-.ird
they would gain bv sharing in
the p-nentl pnispcrity of the people.
The money w ill bo eagerly absortMHl
by our industrial classes. The gold
certificates, and silver certificated now
cin ulating side by side at par will
continue to do so. ' Should tho silver

neceeary, the banlt

bank notes. We will thus substituto
good money for baj.and rid ourselves
of an interest-licarinp; debt a debt
over whieh all this controversyensues
a debt the manipulation ot which
ha cost us half a billion of dollars. It
is at tho bottom of all our financial
tricks and monetary legenlemairi, a
constant source of corrupt legislation
and downright swindling. With this
debt, and tho batiks on tip of it, out
of thu way, tho money of tho constitu
tion will rvturn to b4 a. If U
ininU of the country were open to sil
ver the same us to gold, silver would
not be, as it is, now, subject to tho a.
versc whims of tho Treasury olliciuls,
who heretofore have tried to keep it
out of circulation.
In conclusion, the rejsirt says: The
most iuijKvrtiuit function of money in
modern trade and commerce is its le
gal tender power. If gold only is legal
tender the debtwrs must depend upon
this one metal to pay debts. All sil
ver and other products of Christen
dom, except gold, would not pav a
dollar of debt unless they could'bo
exchanged forgold. Should the world
come to the pdd unit as the solo legal
tender, that metal might become so
valuable, us compared with other com
modities, and so scarce in proportion
to the enormous demands made upon
it, that tho money barons of this and
other countries controlling a few hun
dred millions of gold might control
tho destinies of nations and abso
lutely dominate the welfare of man
kind, llelieving tut the unlimited
coinage of silver is the logical solution
of the silver question, and since gold
and silver seem to havo been the con
stitutional money intended forthe use
of the States in adjusting- their legal
tender laws, and fr other reasons
heroin stated, and yet others that
might ho urged for restoring silver to
whero it wasiH'fnre it wasdeinonetiwld
by the act of 1S7:, we recommend the
possago of House bill 'o. otKiO, which
aims at that result.

Until lately fashion allowed men a

them ti carry crash bats, the moral

Why cannot they carry them now? It

Why not allow the male sex a smell

special dispatch from San Francisco
says: "If the damage claims which
the Chinese representatives have pre
ferred can be brought to bear the anti
Mongolian riot and expulsion are
likely to cost the people of the United
States a round sum. ( in culling at the
Chinese consulate yesterday, (Mi Yung
Ming, the Chinese Consul-Honenil,
made the following statement: The
first claim filed with your State le
partment for damages was that for
t&lbo, which grew out of tho Denver
riots of (Vtols-r 13, 1HH0. It is still
unsettled. Kverything was quiet
then till the expulsion of Chinese
from Kurcka, Humboldt county, Cul.,
in February, ISSo. For tho damages
suffered by my people there are suits
being brought in the Circuit Court to
tho amount of nearly $100,000. 1
look not hopefully for success there,
however, and claims will probably be
filed with the Secn-tary of State.
On September 'M a riot occurred
at liock Springs. Wy. T., when
twenty-nine Chinamen' were killed
and a larjrc amount of property tfe
stroyed. F'or the lost property, claims

wounded inSnuak Valley, Washington

Claims to the amount of f "0,000 havo
been or will be filed for that episode.
On September Uth much Chinese prop
erty was destroyed at Coal Creek
miiie, in Kitijj! county, Washington
Territory. Claims have been filed for
$40.4. The chief damage at Tacoinu
was tlone on November .".d, and par
tial claims have been, forwarded to
the amount of OS,750.''
"What about tho Scuttle disturb

pressed in that instance if tho au

"In addition to what the general
has told you," said Col. Ilee, vice
Consul, "a claim for f .'15,000 has been
