National Debts — Mormone timing
It is very much the fashion of
late years to expatiate on the sanc
tity of national debts. All the
newspapers published in the cen
ter* ot capital devote a considera
ble spies to this well worn mono
tone, and the reason is a very sim
ple oue. Most ot their patronage
Is derived from the class who own
bonds and other svidsoces of pub
llo debt, and they write what will
be most agreeable to tbeir patrons.
A man may very much question
either the sanctity or the desira
bility of national, Stale and other
forms of public indebtedness with
out ranging himself among tbe
revolutionists of the Anachsrsls
Cloolz school. Such men as Thom
as Jefferson regarded such debts,
and the accumulation of capital iv
few hands which always follow
upon tbeir heels, as subtle agencies
for tbs enslaving of the masses. A
well-wisher of his kind may well
question whether the destruction
of national credit—the establish
ment of a state of things which
would make It impossible for a
State or nation to get into debt
would not, after all, be a blessing.
It would Involve temporary hard
ship and inconvenience, but then,
j when peoples as well as iudividu
■ als bavo to pinch themselves, they
/ are moderate ia their expenditures.
' They count the cost very carefully,
knowing that they themselves will
bave to pay the scot. The best
and clearest thinkers that have
ever lived lv tho United States
have doubted the ability of one
generation to bind another.
Owing to ths fact tbat aggregat
ed money, In the last fifty years,
has become even a greater power
than the old Holy Alliance, na
tional debts have become a sort of
modern fetish. And yet nothing
can be more thoroughly
proven thau that nations have
disposed of their national
debts as the humor happened
to seizo them. The must striking
thing about it all is, however, that
their credit has uot suffered in the
slightest degree, in consequeuce.
Who cares to inquire now what
France did with her Revolution
ary debt? But it may be snid that
that debt was to her own people,
and that she oould do with it what
she pleased. This argument may
be met by oue from our own his
tory. When tbe American Cou
gress decreed that the Continental
debt should be settled on the basis
of one silver dollar to every forty of
the Continental issue—that is,
when we compounded on the foot
ing of paying our creditors a debt
of a peculiarly sacred nature at the
rate of two aud a half cents on the
dollar, the Freuoh creditors pro
tested. They pointed to the fact
that they had aided our people in
what would be a most momeutous
and critical period of the history of
any nation, aud they suggested
" 'that; however we might elect to
treat our own citizens, we should at
leiist pay French creditors dollar
for dollar. The American Congress
replied that it could not consent to
recoguize auy distinction amongst
its creditors, and it declined to pre
fer the French over Ihe American
When oue luoks baok over the
whole Held, tbat seems a harsh and
unjust discrimination. Yet the
credit of tbe United States is to-day
not any the worse for it—perhaps
more's the pity.
The House of Representatives,
day before yesterday, by a more
than two-thirds vote, passed the
Stanley Matthews resolution de
claring that the interest en the
Natioual debt was rightfully
payable iv sliver, ut tbe
option of the Goverumsu t. We do
not pretend to say that this
action will have tbo effect of in
creasing tbe value of silver. We
disclaim auy knowledge of the ul
timate results. There may be a
resentful conspiracy amougst cap
italists, iv consequence, to depress
the value of silver, but it will prob
ably fail in ths end, if it is at
tempted. If ths balance of trade
were against us it might result iv
denuding tha country of gold. But
United States bonds still remain a
good Investment, and we cau sus
tain the shock| if a few hundred
millions of government bonds are
returned upon our hand*. We cau
pay them in silver and that ought
to create a demand for silver colu,
and check any movement of the
kind, besides. If the gamehiuted
at were attempted, like a two
edged sword, it would cut both
It is a flue thing to do right
though the heavens fall. Oarfleld's
resolution declaring that the prin
cipal and interest of the publicdebt
were payable in gold coin only waa
an infamy which should be recti
fied at whatever cost, it was a lie
and a betrayal of the masses who
pay the taxes. As the demoneti
zation of silver lv Germany was
the primary cause of the appalling
fall in the value of that metal, we
are not without hope, though we
have our doubts of it, that its re
monetization by the United Slates
will restore its value to par.
The Ban Francisco oironicle
thinks the capital of the United
States should be looated consider
ably west of its present site. It
believes that then the wauts of the
great west would receive more at
tention from Cougress than they
de now. We agree with the Chron
icle. We think, further, tbat the
capital of the Statu of California
should be located south of Sacra
mento. In that event we are in
clined to believe that tbe interests
of the southern section of this
State would receive, occasionally,
at least an oblique attention. By
the way, while ou this subjeot, we
would suggest to the Southern Cal
ifornia members of the Legisla
ture that a State Normal School,
au Insane Asylum, a Penitentiary,
and other institutions, built and
maintained by the State, would
look remarkably well perched
somewhere in Southern California.
Ground for such purposes immedi
ately aligning the bay is becoming
both scarce and dear. The preseut
legislature should take a new de
parture aud glf« Southern Califor
nia a show.
Wi regard the antl-aubeidy vote
of the House of Representatives,
day before yesterday, as the knell
of the Texas-Pacific guarantee. It
is true that the friends of the Scott
measure claim that the guarantee
ie not a subsidy, but this is a nice
distinction to which people who
are not Interested iv the success of
Soott give little heed. It really
seems as if tlie guarantee were
weaker In the present Congress
than In the last. The anti-subsidy
resolution was passed by a vote
largely over two-thirds. The
measure has had iv Washington,
even iv advance of the assembling
of Cougress, a powerful, zealous
and persevering lobby. Should it
fail to receive Congressional aid
now it will have to rely entirely
upou private enterprise to get itself
built. The euergy with which the
guarantee has beeu pressed is
probably a gauge of tho necessity
of legislation to the accomplish
ment of Scott's plans.
Already, our dispatches in
form us, the resentful moneyed
classes are sending up tlie premium
on gold, following on the passage
of the Matthews resolution. United
States bonds have fallen off a frac
tion iv London. Well, iftheydou't
like them over there let tbeiu send
the bonds home aud we'll pay
them oil in silveras loug as it lasts.
"Are you there, old Truepenny?"
We rather think we have the
bloated gentry at a disadvan
tage, so to speak. Perhaps it
would'u't hurt the country, after
all, if the idea should get abroad
that investment in Government
bends is not the best thing uuder
the sun. Enterprises which have
languished to long might theu be
vitalized. Reliance upou the In
come derivable from a publicdebt
is, for the country at largo, the
sleep of death.
Should a genuine remonetlza
tiou of silver result from the ac
complished and meditated legisla
tion ofthe preseut Congress it will
prove to be a great boon to the peo
ple of Los Angeles. Very few of
our business men receive anything
but silver iv their daily transac
tions, while all remittances to San
Francisco must be made in gold
coin. This has proved a most op
pressive tax —at one time a fairly
intolerable one—upon our business
men. The Pacific, Coast, tbe great
silver producer, will, of all sections,
be the most beneßted if the pro
silver legislation ha* the effeots it*
advocate* claim for it.
Bum Butlkr—strabismic Ben-
Ben whose gleaming oook-eye riv
eted on the beholder is suggestive
of quest for some oue urouud the
corner—has never got over his
early Democratic "bringing up."
He tells tbe capitalists that they
had better take the Bland silver
bill iv good part aud make the
most of it. Butler is right. It is
sometimes inexpedient to ask too
much. A too arbitrary demand
sometimes p Is like a boomerang.

Helena, Montßßßi Jau. £9tli. —
Tlie Independent publishes the fol
lowing: Major Walsh, of tha
Northwest Mounted Police, com
mandant of Fort Walsh, Canada,
near which Sitting Bull and other
hostile Indlaus are now located, ar
rived in Helena to-day, eight days
out from Fort Walsh. When Maj.
Walsh left, Sitting Bull, Little
Knife and fifty-live lodges were at
tlie east end police post, Cypress
Mountains, where they intend to
remain during the Winter. The
night before leaving Maj. Walsh
received a message fiom Sitting
Bull sayiug that hs had heard that
tbe Americans were coming to
tight him and disturd his
peace; that they were tired
of blood and would move nearer
to tbe past. He desired Major
Walsh to spsak to the White
Mother for him. Spotted Eagle
sent him a message at the same
time, saying be was awaiting the
arrival of 100 lodges of his people,
who ware coming from the Spotted
Tail Agency; that if they would
obey the requirements of Major
Walsh they could remain with
him, and if not they must go by,
and he, too, would move to Cypress
Mountains. It is not improbable
that these latter are tbo Indians
reported to General Miles. Msjor
Walsh says tbat at no time since
his arrival has Sitting Bull's camp
crossed ths line to American soil,
as be has received daily messages
from hjm since tho Terry Commis
sion returned. Tbeir movement
across the ims without his knowl
edge would be impossible, aud he
would promptly advise General
Gibbsn in ibut event. The Sioux
camp is now scattered. Spotted
Eagfe, with 100 lodges, is at Pinto
Butte, and the others are scattered
along the White Mud river and iv
tbe Food Mountains, where buffalo
are plenty. Their condition is irre
consilable with warlike intentions.
Colonel MacLeod, commander of
mounted police, is here, and cor
roborates the above. No credence
is attached to the rumor that Sit
ting Bull bas crossed the line.
Major Walsh's statements are
deemed iv tbe highest degree

Washinoton, Jan. 29th.—Sena
tor Sargent to-day, in csnversation
with your correspondent, suggested
tbat tbs California Legislature
should do something to protect Cal
ifornia from the grasp of the Chi
nese by amending section 6671 of
tbe Code so as to provide that an
alien, debarred by treaty from citi
zenship, shall not acquire title in
fee to real property, or so as to pro
vide that no alien shall acquire It.
This latter provision is the law iv
New York. Sargent remarked
that, during the lata war, aliens
holding real property gave muoh
trouble by continually apply iag to
their Ministers to Interfere in our
mods of taxing such property,
olaimlng, in ana instance, at least,
that the Queen of Great Britain
should protect a British subject
from being taxed on an iasue in
which he had no coueern. The

vised statutes. Agreed to.
lieck iv introducing his resolu
tion agaiust au appropriation for
the Sinking fuud, said he wauted
au expression from both bouses re
garding tbe important question of
reducing oppressive taxation and
yet supporting tlie government.
He thought ho could show bow
thirty millions could be saved
from the Customs service, Internal
Revenue and ladian management,
but at present he would only con
sider the Sinking fund. Tbe Sec
retary of the Treasury had said
there would bo a deficiency of over
eleven millions at the end of the
next fiscal year in the Govern
ment's receipts; also, that the
Sinking fund contains $220,000,000
more tliau it requires, and govern
ment had practically fulfilled all
its pledges for ths Sinking fund.
Wherefore so anxious to pay bonds
now? The public creditors are not
suffering, the property of the
United States is growing more
valuable and the public debt is a
mortgage ou il. The Sinking fund
was provided for at least five years
in advauoe, and now Congress
should re lure taxation. Had Con
gress been in formed of tbs condi
tion of the Sinking fund it would
never havo passed the act of March
3J, U75, to protect the Siuking
fuud and increase taxes. The
Treasury offloials had grossly de
ceived Dawes, who controlled that

Wallace said gold can't be so di
vided as to suit all classes of people
while silver can. With both
metals there is industry, eoonomy,
plenty; with only one, depression,
ruin and idleness. There is no
foundation in minerals or law for
enhancing the value of the publio
debt. Justice and expediency op
pose it. The restoratiou of the an
cient gold and silver circulation
was a safe compromise between tbe
two factious. He declared that
remonetization would Increase tlie
value of silver according to the
eternal laws of demand and supply.
He continued at some length and
Bayard theu took tbe floor and
said ho did not favor abolishing
silver as the coin of the oountry
and he would, if the business of
tbe country would not be disturbed
thereby, favor restoriug silver as
money. This bill practically al
lowed the owner of silver to take it
to the mint, have it stamped and
raised teu per cent. In value, while
the owner of gold secured no beueflt
from the stamping.
Oordou presented resolutions of
a meeting at Rome, Oa., favoring
remonetizatiou and tlie repeal of
the resumption aot.
Dawss opposed tho silver bill,
declaring it a oheating, delusive
inilatiou scheme, whicli would fos
ter idleness and distrust and drive
capital into security aud shelter.
He declared tbe speotacle presented
by this young country of trying to
pay its debts in money cheaper
than that borrowed, involved the
destruction of the national credit
and humiliation and disgrace.
White opposed the bill.

Interview wltb Ucuerni Crook,
Omaha, Jan. 29th—Osusral
Crook left last night for tbs Indian
Territory on ' business' connected
with Indian a Hairs. In an inter
view before leaviug, he said,
among otber things, lhat iv his
opinion it would be difficult to
maintain peace on tbe northern
border and ou the upper Missouri
aud Yellowstone. Hitting Bull
could uot long remain on Britieh
soil, becauie the English thar* bave
nothing to supply the Indians with
and tbe eoareity of buffalo makes it
necessary for Indians to follow the
buffale to its aceuatomed stamping
ground, which is in United States
territorry. Whenever Sitting Bull
and bi* Indians come dewu that
far, there will be more or less com
munication between them aud
other Indians and, consequently,
there will be more or less trouble.
Tbe decrease of buffalo is
■o rapid that the Indians will
soon havo to Mud tome otber means
of subsistence, and this will even
tually compel them to rely ou the
government or toe un in it depreda
tions. In his opinion over 100,000
buffaloes have beeu slaughtered
every year for the past ten years
aud the natural increase is very
much less than this. Tbe largest
portion of tho buffaloes killed are
cows, aud this rate of decrease in
females renders tho final extinc
tion ofthe buffalo inevitable. Oan.
Crook thought it would be utterly
impossible to prevent Witting Bull
from crossing tbe bordor into tbe
United States, as there were 500
miles ot unprotected territory.
There are troops ou Tougue river,

and there is uo doubt that they can
do much toward* chocking tho In
diana from committiug any serious
depredations; still there will always
be in that upper country more or

but that immediately after the ar
rival of Grand Duke Nicholas with
the Plenipotentiaries aud General
Ignatieff lv Adrianople, definite
peace negotiations will be entered
into on tbe bads of the prelimina
ries accepted by the Porte. This is
uot improbable, as the preliminary
questions are so general and elastic
that they will only receive real
significance by definition ia the
flual peace instrument. They may
be made infinitely harder than al
ready announced or else softened
down so a* to leave Turkey tbe
semblance of existence aa an Eu
ropean Power. He would be a
bold man who would now venture
to affirm what will ultimately belt
suit the purposes of Russia; wheth
er she will aim at a radical solu
tion or merely prepare the way fur
it. Much will doubtless depend on
the course of tbe pour-parlers with
Individual powers, which seems to
be going on simultaneously with
tbe negotiations with Turkey.
Whether Russia may think it more
advantageous to crush Turkey or
protect her, an armistice with a
fixed date would certainly be more
in the way than a sort of tacit sus
pension of hostilities. which
seems, for the moment, to exist,
but which Russia may put an end
