Inglj, In otdlence to that JemanJ, the
Congress In 1878 passed the act for the
coinage of ellver ilollan, railing thru a
full legal tenJer and rrqalrlng stated
amount of thiin to be rained tnonthlv.
Thin waa an unpardonable aln against tht

Lart been tearing thtlr hair and rtndlng
their garmtnta ever alnrt. Knowing, aa
they do, that the sentiment and judgment
of a Tait majority of their lellow-cltliene
are dead-set against any disturbances of
the present statu of that coin, the now
aetk by Indirection to accompllih In de
atructlon at a currency.
Tht President In lil meeeaje, In obedi
ence to the dictation of the money power,
recomenda two acheniet deeigned evidently
torohthe people of the benefit of thl
most useful and convenient meJiom of
change, vlit 1st, To rental the law author
hlng the Issue of illrer certificates; 2i , to
repeal ao much of the act of 1STS aa re
.Jill res not lew than $2,000,000 to be coined
per month, and Irare the amount to be
coined toltly to the dlacretlon of the Tret
nry Department. The President assign aa
a reason for retiring the allrer certificate!
that "they orm an unnecessary addition to
the paper currency, a sufficient amount of
which may be readily inpalled by
national banks." He tap, Ttry trnly, that
thete certlficatet "were Itaued in pureu-
anreof tha policy of the Qoteinment to
maintain allrer at or near the gold aland
aid and accordingly made receivable for all
cuttomt, taxet, tic." Wat there anything
wrong about that policy? Hiring by law
declared the atlm dollar a legal leader be
tween her ctlltent wae it not right ibat the
(lorernment ahould recogniie and treat It
aa a good dollar by receiving it at the
Treaaury and leaning; to the depot llor the
(lot einnient a certificate for it value? In
the mldat of the clamor agalnit It on the
part of Ire eoemtaa, who denounced it aa
Inferior money and etlgmatited the crea
tion of It aa ''Inflation it waa Decenary
for the (lorernment to do aomething to
popularize It. The tnjuatlce of Ita foea
made thia neceaaary, whereat with fair
treatment it would hart needed no bolittr
lng. When a particular kind of moneyia
alandered ll needa a proof of lla good rhar-
l acter Jutt at much aa a man doea when hla
good name la assailed; and the certin
catet furnlah that proof at to the Talue of
the "dollar or the daddiea." To withdraw
Ihett certificate, a propoaed, would under
eilsling circumstances, be alooat aa fatal
to thl camacy aa would be Iht aiamplng
f each piece at the QoTernment mint with
the word, -not good." But lb Pretid.nl
av diver certificate "form an annece
aary addition to the paper currency, a auf
Cclent amount ol which may be aupplled
by the national baoka." Thai leta the cat
out of the wallet. H, any inert paper

national banka mutt isao it. ISobody
ela, not eren the QoTernment Itielf, 1
competent to Judge of the amount of auch
currency needed, and nobody ebw'a paper,
not eren Ibat of the (lorernment, it good
enoughs It mala no difference how
much national bank paper it tuned no
amount, however rait, of that paper that
might b itaued would b called "an unnec
entry additlou lu the paper currency."
Now why la national bank paper preferi
ble to iltrer certificate.' Will It pay for
anything that the cerlificalet will not pay
for? Poet It reel on any aafer or sounjer
bath? Certainly not. It It payable In
greeubarka and aecured by V, 8. bond ud
IbecertlOcatea are payable in silver dol
lar by the t. 8. Government, which are
a full legal tender for all purpoaet. Green
back and illrer dolltri are of exactly
eiual value. Therefore, the preference
propoted by the Pretident to be given to
national bank paper ortr thn certlficatet,
la nothing more nor let than aheer far
orttltm nothing more nor lew than
prepoeition to take from the people a Try
convenient and perfectly aafe kind of cur
rency in order to confer a pecuniary faror
upon national! banker. It would em
that a compliance with thlt recommtnda-
tton ought lo tillify th moat relenllu

we have worked faithfully to know
the wants of the people and to supply
them at such prices as would increase
our sales, and insure us permanency.
As the best evidence of success, we
point you to the rapid increase of our
trade, we are not
ery class of g-oods,
Clothing. Gents' Furnishing Goods, to
which properly belongs Hats, Trunks,
and Valises, and it
time when we will convince every one
that the real inducements are offered
in this way. Another plan we have
adopted, different from the general
rule, is that we close our stock, even
at a sacrifice, every season and replen
ish with new, fresh, unbroken lots.
We are making special low figures on
rail our goods, and
or Overcoat is wanted, we never miss
a sale. We want the trade, and we are
willing to advertise with low prices
for it. As we desire to make a drive
in CLOTHING,we insist that every one
wanting a Suit will see our goods and
prices within the next few days.
"We are making an effort to lead the
market in Itixlic.- Tine Slioes.,
and in order to do it, we have select
ed the best brand to be had,and have
made the prices not to be undersold.
In our Custom Goods wo warrant overy pair,
and moan it. Respectfully,
