Mr. ltobcrt Price ot Zanesvlllc, Ohio.
was h s Tnember ot the city council of
that town, has practical ideas on lhcul
Ject ot the resumption of sjicelo payments.
He is a disciple of Horace Greeley and
believes that the sage of Cliatauqua was
the prophet as well as the priest of re
sumption when he said "the way to re
sume is "to resume." Last week Mr.
Price started' lire ball of resumption or
believe that he did, Ho procured a silver
half-dollar by depositing Its equivalent
In currency In a bank pcrhaps-and going
to a gun shop he had the words: 'The way
to resume" stamped on It. Ho then,
Wise Mr. Trice carried thu cccd Irom
which lie believes will spring the flour
ishing tree of resumption, to a printing
office in UU town an J paid an ndvancu
payment of three mouths on his weekly
newspaper. He thus not only "started
the ball of resumption." but sccuri-d n
tlrst-claas advertisement of his own pat
riotic attempt at a practical solution of
the great national problem of the day.
Mr. Price paid the sliver half-dollar
with tho stipulation that the edi
tor should not block its mis
slon at the start by taking it
home and locking it up with
tke plate, jewels and other valuables
usually concealed somewhere In an edit
or's family mansion ; he was to pay it
out at tho first opportunity and make tho
same stipulation with the person who
received It that had been made with him.
"A rolling stone gathers no moss," but
Mr. Price believes that a circulating sil
ver half-dollar, by some special magne
tism of its own, will nltract from long
hiding places, from secret drawers, from
old stockuuri. from well-worn wallets
reglmenti.orKilvcr companions In arms
dtmcsciulf-dlines, quarters and half-dol-lars
jWhlch may do yeoman ser
vice in tlie battle for resumption.
Mr. Price's avant coaricr of specie
resumption Is ot filled States coinage,
dated 1800, "bears thirteen States,
the head ot the Goddess or Lltcrty
and the proud bird of America, tho bald
headed eagle," and the words, "The way

about a week ago.

A few weeks before tho trial of Gen.
Ilabcock began In St. Louis, Attorney
General Plcrrepont Issued to tho district
attorneys engaged In tho prosecution of
tho whiskey trials the following circular
letter:
Dkimiitiikxt or Jueiu-i:,
" ; Washington, Jan. 8, 1875. j
lo Mr.- -Dallc.1 Stales Ulstrlct Attorney :
DKAnSnc My attention to-day has
been called to luany newspiper reports
stating that: In St: Louis, Chicago, and
Milwaukee large numbers of !gullty wen
who enures their guilt are let oirirom
prosecution.- I cannot suppose that this
s true, but'iny attention being called to
it, I have directed a letter to each of these
places that tho district attorney niiy
know that suggestions havu been made
that nulla too many guilty are to go un
punished. 1 am aware that In the ex
citement many rumors will gain cre
dence and I repose in your good Judg
ment to drive away any possible scandal
Irom anything that will even look like
favoritism toward thoso who have de
frauded the goverment. it is the Presi
dent's reiterutcd desire that, "no guilty
nun Bii.ui escape." i no not Know that
thero is any Intention on the n.irt of unv
ono charged with tho administration of
me laws to favor any person, and the up-
iiuanuico oi any Mien lavoruiMii sfioiild
uocareiuiiy avoided. I write this by
way of caution, for f have determined so
far as lies In my power to have these
prosecutions so conducted that when
they are over, the honest Judgement of
uiu nuiicsi men in me country, which Is
sure, in tho main, to bo lust. will mi v tli.it
no ono has been proeented from thu inal-
ico unci mat no guilty one lias been Jet oil
through favoritism, and that no gullly
one that has been nroved L'lilllv. or lias
confessed himself irulltv. Ii:is Kith snf.
fcrcd to escape punishment.
lours very re.spcciiuiiy,
. Kivai:i PiKni:i:ro.vr Att'y Gen.
Overlooking the fact that Mr.
Plcrrepont overstepped tho bounds
of an authority not his
own and encroached on the province
of the secretary ot the treasury when he
announced his Intentions in regard to the
prosecution of tho whisky thieves, the
Republican papers were loud In praise
of Gen. Grant's determination to let no
guilty man escape. From lata develop
ment It appears that tho order to the dis
trict attorney lias a secret history and
that It meant uioiu ami 1WS than It said.
While Issued for the obvious purpo-o of
directing that the guilty should expect
no immunity from punishment, iM effect
was to seal the mouths of
the only competent wltuessucss in
the whisky cases their more prominent j
nnd more guilty confederates. This is tho
only Inference that can ho drawn from
the circumstances .surrounding the Issu
ing of the order. The criticisms which
have been made on It have elicited tho
following account of Its Inception and
promulgation, In a well-authenticated
dispatch from Washington City, under
datcot Uthlusl:
"The interpretation which has been
put upon the letter ot Mr. Plcrrepont to
District Attorney Dyer in regard to iu-
uriiicrs n.-is seriously annoyed me altor.
ncy general, partlculaily a.s many of his
legal friends have expressed great sur
prise thereat. To some of these he has
made an explanation which only adds to
tlie significance or the situation. He
says that the idea of the letter did
not originate with him, but with the
president, who sent for him and told him
he did not think the testimony of Inform
crs should Ihj given such prominence by
the pro.-eculion, ami that lie wanted u
letter written giving j.ccific orders to
district attorneys In regard to the whole
matter. Acting uuder directlon.'ol the
jire-ident, he wrote the letter which lias
itceu so generally criticized. Ho think
men-mi ui uviu inirsniy juugmi on ac
count of it terms, he should really Ikj
commended, since ho succeeded in fram
ing one mat was much milder than tho
president wanted, as is Instanced by the
fact that when the president saw It he ex
pressed ids dlsjatl-faetlon because It was
not stronger.

(Paul fjRie, In I iimim' Juurnnl )
I am n pot-hunter.
I never shot over n pointer or n setter
lu my life; am not a member of any
gamo protective society ; shoot my game
sitting if! can; ami shoot as much lor
tliu pot as ror the spoit ; therefore, lam
u iiou-prorewlonal sport sinan -a vagrant
gunner a pot-hunter -and ought lo bo
despised by every Iruc-hlooded sports
man. This Is my jH-dlgrej (Pot-hunter
No. !Wfl). nnd I submit to the leader
the following adventures, which are sur
prising, considering that thev happened
to n pot-hunter:
Distinctly do I remember Iho llrst ol
my gunning exploits. I wa a bnv PJ
years ol age nnd lived vvltli my parents
ou a rami in tho southern part of New
.lersoy. over the old-fashioned llro-plaeo.
on hooks, hung nn old musket which had
seen service lu the devolution. My
grandfather carried it ou his shoulder
when ho hid In the swamps nil hearlii"
that the British landed near Philadelphia.
During my boyish days it was the am
bition or my lite to go gunning with that
musket. 1 asked my father several times
ror the coveted gun. but ho always an
swered, "Why, child, It will kick Mice
over;" ho nl ways used the Quaker Ian
gunge, though he was n eainp-golug
Methodist.
I coveted the gun each day more nad
more. The warning about tho gun kick
ing made no Impression on me at all ; I
considered It "moonshine," Invented to
frighten mo. One day. when nil tho fam
ily but myself had gone to camp-mi-ellng,
f trot a chair ami reached down tin- old
musket, nnd then buckling around me
the powder llak of cow's horn nml thn
leather liot-pnucli. sallied forth Into the
orchard In search organic. Tho gun was
already capped and loaded, nnd soon I
espied n juvenile robin sitting on the
lower branch or an ancient apple
tree, unable to ily because or the feather
less condition of Its wings. I put the
old musket to my shudder, el-mmd
along tliu barrel, drew n "bead" on the
fatted bird, and pulled the trigger day
changed Into night, stars twinkled lit
the black sky and shot Intospuce, cornels
rushed across, fourteen moons revolved
rapidly on their n.ic.s. aurora Imre-iiUi-i
and rainbows became mixed, ami I
picked myself slowly up from oil" the
damn "round, wonderlni! what :i str-mitro
coincidence It wu3 that I should he struck
by lightning Immediately on pulling the
trigger. Hut what cared I lor all this,
and n bruised shoulder which nalned
me Air weeks niter 1 Had I not killed my
bird? I hunted around for It. nml. liter
oilite a search, found a tall leather and a
bit of the bill of tlie fipor bird. Then my
shoulder began lo pain me. and I grew
mini-. a wickcii iiiougui entered my
head, nnd according to Its dictation, 1
put all the powder that was lu the horn
(about six dracluiHl into the
nun mc same amount oi suol, and the
limped pamtuiiy to the house and hull
the musket in its accustomed place.
A week or so afterwards I ventured I
tell my father thu circumstances of in
llrs: shooting, keeping back nbout the
over-loading ol the musket. He luughe
Heartily at thu story nnd said "Why
lad, tlie old gun was loaded for deer,
witn uucivsnot. and me load had nistc
in me oarrcii."
1 hat same dav n hawk- en me ili-lm-
about the farm, and father took down the
gun to snoot it.
"lloy," lie said, "doe? thee think thee
put in enough powder and shot to kill
me iiawh."
un : yes." i replied. "I guess I put
ciiuuxii in , ami i laugucd in luv steev
to think what a tremendous kicking tin
out gentleman would get.
mo nawK came uying within easy
range, and father put up the gun and
1 1 red.
He killed llif hawk !
