it wrs the pursuit of one' inclination up

The Timet man was not the person he
expected. When that representative of
the greatest newspaper in America step
jvd from the car and confronted him
with, "Good evening governor," and an
nounced his calling and his mission, ku
was astonished, but pleased. Abandon-

ana started tor home. As pleasant a
borne as need be, it seemed, w hen at the
end of ten minutes walk they halted at
an opening in a beautiful hedge, where
two great stones, unhewn and of some
strange old formation marked the place
for a gate. A lawn covering several
acres and shaded by magnificent forest
trees was crossed by . a grand gravel
walk which led to the door of a small
but handsome house, built in halt imi
tarion of the southern style, with veran
das on the outside and a hall running
through from front to rear. A modest
house, but very comfortable In all its as
pect, and bearing about it an air of
borne. There was a great flower garden
to the left, and the great barns iu the
rear; and between- two line old trees
there hung one ot those long, heavy
swings by means of which the youth

lie led the way in, and sat down
The pumps w;re applied. The Time
creature demanded to know whether he
had been officially notified of his latest
"No." said he. "I ain't. Nor I don't
suppose I'd belter be, until after Tilden
baa written that letrer of his. It wouldn't
comport very well with my well-known
character for modesty to formally acct-pt
the nomination on that platform until
the candidate for president has, nor until
he construes the platform."
Of course lie would accept the nomina"
tion. Ot course. But he did not care to

Mr. Steward is not a tacltun man. He
has conversational powers of a monolo
gue order in a degree uuequaled by any
other candidate whatsoever. For so
fluent a talker,
HE TALKS WELL,
but like most fluent talkers, his talk is
strongly tinctured w ith Ego. There Is a
ort of vanity In bis composition that
oozes through his discourse at all points,
but never is offensive. He thinks a great
deal ot Lew Steward, and makes no
-xrvicv vi iimi Biuicniuenr, ana It so
pleases mm to meet a man who also
thinks a great deal of Lew Steward and
says so in a neat way, that he remembers
that man and repeats hU sayings with

spend an hour in Lis company and leave
mm unmpressed witn the beliet that he
Is an uncommonly shrewd and sensible
The dialogue ran on lor halt an hour
or more without touching upon political
afltirs. Several times his interviewer
bent It that way, but Steward shied and
branched oil' about horses or farms. He
and Mr. Henuing and John 11. Jacobs
raised stock, and had as tine a lot ot stal
lions over there in the valley as ever you
saw. The heaviest of theiu weighed a
ton, and the lightest weighed only three
hundred pounds. He had a saw mill and
a cheese lactory and a tannery la that
same valley, all of which Institutions
were "run" by water power Irom the
Big Itock creek. And beyond them he
had a grove that covered a couple of hun
dred acres a lavely a grove as ever
was seen, which, Marsh said, reminded
him very strongly ol the l'ratter at Vi
enna. And be had a private race track
ol half a mile over there, too ; not that he
was a racing man, but that he found
it a useful adjunct to his stock farm.
The people from all about that section
used bis grove lor picnics, and he liked
to Lave them do It. Any one might use
it so long as good behavior was main

you see, upon the prorogations oi toe
citizen. It was easy to shift the discuss
ion to labor ; and from labor, Mr. Stew"
ard slid with surprising celerity Into
1 tell you," bo began, with great ani
mation, "the financial question some
times I get disgusted with it. The whole
thing lies right here : all the wealth in
the world is Its labor. Labor is money
and by labor only can you measure the
value of money. You talk about a stand
ard of value, and try to And it in gold.
These fellows in congress blow about It.
But say what they like, labor is the only
money, and the only meusure for values.
All the wealth ot the world came out of
the ground. See here. Ahundred years
ago the land we see right here was capa
ble of producing just what it is produ
cing now, but it would not have brought
ten cents an acre in the market. It was
wild, and beyond the reach ot labor.
Labor came, and its value has luerciscd
ever since. A Hundred years ago, sup
pose that house of mine stood where it
does now : it would have been just as
good a bouse, but It would have been un
inhabitable, because it would have stood
alone in a wilderness; but here comes
another man, w ho builds another house,
and then another man still, and so, by in
crease nnd aggregation ot labor all about
it, my house became valuable. Tbe
whole theory of finance is a theory
of exchange, and the only end
it has to give birth to a practicable
means of exchange ; that is, to provide
some method by which labor may be
crystallzed so as to facilitate exchange.
Suppose I want to trade my house for a
house In Iowa. I do not want to be
obliged to resort to cumbrous compara
sons, or to take my house into Iowa to
swap. I give it to some one in exchange
for something which we call money
which In fact Is a thing that represents
precisely the amount of labor that I value
my house at. I take this labor into Iowa,
and give enough ot it to the man who
owls the house there to represent the
labor that made the value of his labor.
"Then money, as you view it, is
simply labor held in solution?"
"Yes. Perhaps I'd better say, crys
talized labor. Now, suppose this gov.
eminent wants $40,000,000 to carry on n
war with or anything else. All the
wealth ol the government is derived from
the people it can't come lrom ary oilier
source. So the government says to tbe
people, 'here ; I want a dollar a head
from every one of you fellows, man, wo
man, and child. I want you to give me.
that is to say, one dollar's worth oi work
tor every one of you fellows.' Every one
of them gives a dollar's worth of work.
Then, the government issues certificates
oblong pieces ot paper certifying that
it hag received from each ot these people
a dollar's worth of work, and promising
to pay for it. I take the certificate for
my work. By and by you come along
and say, 'Here, I w ant a dollar's worth ot
labor from you, and if you'll do it, I'i1
give you my certificate. I do it, and
take your certificate. Theu I Lave two.
I may go on, and in that way accumulate
a hundred dollars a thousand and so
"But when it comes to the fulfillment
I'UOMISK TO I'AY ?
what do you get for your certificate?"
"Another certificate. That Is the long
and short of it. The entire wealth of the
government, as I told you, is got from
the people. It can't have any other than
what It acquires in that way. It has got
to pay us iu our own coin. What is the
difference whether the second certificate
Is a bit of metal or a bit of paper t If it is
a bit of metal, some one had to put a dol
lar s worth of labor In it, or It would uot,
represent a dollar. ou can't get around
that. Labor is the only standard of
value that doc not Uuetuate. Silver is
metal, but it fluctuates. It's worth ten
cents less now than it was a little while
ago. Gold fluctuates"

However, it makes little real difference
what the governor of a stale may think
about the matter. A governor is merely
an executive officer, put there to attend
to certain duties in no way connected
with national finances."
"I'erhaps so, Mr. Steward. But here
you are nominated on the Decatur
platform, which declares for soft money,
and again on the St. Louis platform
which declares for hard money. Your
views as to these two opposite platforms
are ol interest to the people, and the peo
ple have a right to know them."
"That's so. But I'm not going to an
ticipate Gov. Tildeu's Interpretation of
that St. Louis platform."
"Isn't the St. Louis platform clear and
plain enough V"
Mr. Steward was not quite so certain
about that. His experience and observa-

"No ; I didn't mean that. I mean that

He was inflexible on that point, and
the conversation branched off upon other
topics, beginning with Bret Harte, sting-
gling through the Elizabethan damatlsts,
and bringing up at the
I'XIVERSAL RYTHMIC MOTION
which Dervades the universe and all
things in It. They talked as two men
with good cigars, in a social place, under
a bright moon, and with a long evening
betore them can afford to talk. They
had been discussing the broad language
of the dramatists In question, and refine
ments which in these later days rejects
all mention in polite society of the things
which polite society ot the Elizabethan
day spoke of without blushing. Stew
ard s idea was, that sense was sense,
and genius none the less genius tor Lav

"We are passing now," said he,
"through what I call a wave of Miss
Nancyism a wave of prudency ; and 1
believe we are almost on the other side ol
It. You can see it rolling away."
This brought out the wave subject,
and here he launched himself again.
"This here talk about
is all a brain wave. We hear people
talking about hard times hard times
and grumbling. The truth is, that hard
times are in peoples minds. I never saw
the day yet that I couldn't get all I
needed to wear and eat, and all I wanted
to do. Talk about the greenback pro'
ducins tluancial depression. 1 haven't
seen or heard ot the time when there
wasn't paper money In existence, and
necessary in lacl ; and I'd rather see the
government issuing it than a lot ot ir
responsible private concerns. The earth
is just as fruitful now; the attraction of
gravitation sends water down hill to
turn a mill wheel Just as fast as ten years
ago ; steam is just as expansive, and iron
just as Lard. Tbe law of supply and
demand is the same, and
SUPPLY AND P1CMANI
are in the aggregate just as exactly bal
anced as they ever were. Ten years ago
1 could raise a bushel of potatoes and
trade it lor a pair of shoes, as I can
now. I could wear out the shoes just
as fast, and the shoemaker could eat and
digest the potatoes just as well then as
now ; but suppose the shoemaker takes it
Into bis bead that he won't trade me the
shoes, and I take It into mine not to trade
him the potatoes. We come to a dead
lock, and have 'hard times.' And just so
hard times are made. They come In reg

A little while after, striking upon the
subject of bonds, he expressed his opin

One of. the papers lu the county Lad
tried to make tun of him because he
"swum" tbe Fox river a few days ago
to get at a man with whom he desired to
talk and had roosted on a log to a state
of nature while he and that man had
their palaver out. He couldn't see any
thing wrong about that. He "swum',
because by so doing be saved a round

responsibility of such an offl

given credit for having as much sense as

said he, "and no one has a right to call

self to be Incompetent. Ills notion was
that the most important duty of the gov.
ernor was to see that no stealing was
done, and to be careful that all the pub
lic Institutions ot the state, charitable and
other, were properly managed.
And so on, through a ramble over the
grounds and down in the valley (which
certainly Is as lovely a spot as any in the
State) and a walk to the satloii and a
wait for the midnight train, upon which
the Timet talker came back to the city.
iwerlnf socb baseless fabrications as
those In the Journal, still was willing to
answer all questions propounded to him,
Mr. Afkerman first stated that the best
of feeling existed between Mr. Douglas
and the board of directors, and that his
administration had been highly honor
able and successful, and no reflection
eould or ever had been cast upon it by
the board, or any one else connected
with the company. In regard to the in
vestment of the f 0,000,000 In the Jack
son and Cairo line, Mr. Akerman stated
that his company about four years ago, in
order to secure control of the busl
ines south of the Ohio and a
through line to New Orleans, loaned the
Mississippi Central railroad $0,000,000
with which to build a connection be
tween the two lines from Jackson to
Cairo, a distance of one hundred and
seven miles. It was expected that this
would greatly help the company, and in
crease the gross earnings and not dimin
ish them, as the State Journal, asserted.
Had railroad business remained as good
as it was at the time the money wa
loaned, the wisdom of the movement
would have appeared ere this. But the
general depression of railroad business
which followed the crevasse of the spring
of 1874, and Various other causes, greatly
impaired the earnings of the road. While
the expectations of its projectors have
not been realized, there Is no reason to
call the investment a foolish one, as the
road must sooner or later become
source of profit to the people of Chicago
and the Illinois Central. There was not
the least danger that the road would lose
the $0,000,000. It held a first mortgage
on the 107 miles between Jackson and
Cairo and a second mortgage on the rest
of the road. The proceedings which
are now pending in the southern courts
looking to a forecloscure ol the New Or
leans toad were commenced in the in
terest of the Illinois Central railroad.
The charge that the board was try ing
to place the responsibility of this invest
mcnt upon the shoulders of Mr. Douglhi
was preposterous. At the time the In
vestment was made, Mr. John Newell
was president, and he was one of the
trustees. As Mr. Douglas succeeded Mr,
Newell he could not possibly have ha
anything to do with the measure, and
that showed at once the baselessness
the charges made by the State Journal,
The Illinois Central railroad, while
suffering from the present stagnation in
business like all other railroads, ye
would proudly say that, under Mr. Doug
las' management, it had achieved a suc
cess which few other roads had, and
was still doing as well as tbe best.

No man had ever asked him the second

that, he wouldn't be a bit more surprised

polled 70,000 votes two years ago, and
those were mostly drawn from the Re

lieved was allowing more than all the

majority would be so impaired s to ren

that people were asking
"W HO IS LEW STEWARD V"
and that divers of the opposition accused
him of beiug an obscure man. What if
he were obscure? Could anyone name

were six hundred thousand voters in the

(From the Chicago Tribune, July 2s)
The fact that Mr. John M. Douglas at
the last meeting of the Directors of the
Illinois Central Railroad Company, re
signed the presidency ot the road, has
given the Springfield State Journal an op
portunity to write an article more than
a column lu length, lull of serious
charges against the present manage
ment cf the road. The article claims that
the Central is in trouble, that there have
been many mistakes made, and blunders
committed, for which Mr. Douglas re
fused lo be held responsible, which now
threaten the future success ot the man
airemcnt ot the nflalrs ol the corporation
that ncasures have been Inaugurated
aud vast transactions tad, which Mr.
Doughs never willingly assent
ed to. mid for the evil results of
which an attempt was being made
to bold him responsible ; that it was
now attempted to lay at his door the
blunders of others: that be had retired
from the presidency of the company to
escaic the consequences of tbe some-
w hat extraordinary course attempted to
be pursued by members of tbe executive
comraltttee in New York. The article
then explains very minutely bow the
Illinois Central was led into Investing
$0,000,000 for the construction ot 107
miles of land from Jackson to Cairo,
so as to have a straight through line to
New Orleans, aud how this veuture uootf rrHth Batter all tta Year Konnl
turned out disastrously, and bow the
$0,000,000 put into tbe line were in
danger of being entirely lost. It is
pretty certain, concludes the Journal,
that some one has blundered ; that
neither Mr. Douglass nor John Newell,
the president ot the company, who im
mediately preceded Mr. Douglas, could
have been so egregiously taken in as
somebody seems to have been ; and that
it seemed certain that some one in New
York had been done tor to the tune ot
six to eight millions at the expense of
the Illinois Central railroad company.
In order to ascertain the truth or .fal
sity of these charges, a Tribune reporter
yesterday called upon Mr. Douglas at
bis residence, corner of State and Erie
streets. Mr. Doutrlas is a man of very
few words and averse to being interview- W flnnrt Plnffl. LOUISVILLE. KY..

Douglas said be had not seen tbe article,
nor did he care about it. lie never took
anv stock in newspaper stories, nor did
be mean to contradict anything himself.
"But," replied the reporter, "the arti
cle makes no charges against you ; on
the contrary, it defends you against the
Injustice done you by the directors of tbe
'What!" exclaimed Mr. Douglas, "an
Injustice done tome? So one did any
Injustice to me. Have you got the arti
cle with you ?"
The reporter replied that be had, and
at once pulled out of his pocket the slip
containing it and handed it to Mr. Doug
las, who took It und read it very atten
tively. When he got through he replied,
with much tniphabis, that the article,
from the beginning to end, as far as it re
lated to him, was a tissue ol InlHchoods,
which eiuluattd from the brain or Mr. l.

between Mr. O.sborn, one of tbe princi
pal stockholders of the road, against
whom the article is directed, and Mr.
Phillips for the last fifteen years, and
when an opportunity offers Phillips
