The prAintenl side of thHr caae la that
the itt of mining gold make tor it an
IntrlhsK attic a fact Hint attaches to
to) other im-tul. We showed yesterday
from the expense neciHint of mining in
Colorado that It coals mnro to mine
Mtver than gold. And silver la tnlm-d
cheaper In Colorado and gold Is harder
to get than In atiy other mining locality
frt the fulled Htfttes, ttt any rate, and
powlbly In the world. Ttccame In folo
rado there are 110 placer mines of gold
Now. ahjone who think ought to
know this without proof: Hecnuse gold
f?xtt pute and free and not It) Ofe. It
la cither Washed out In lumps or sepa
rated from the rock by crushing. Silver
exists rts nn ore and has to be smutted.
The two facia ought to settle the ques
tion of cost by common sense. X man,
a grub-stake, a pan, a pick, a shovel and
a burro Is a gold mining outfit, while
.the Argentine smelting works tells the
story for reducing stiver from the ores.
The second factor the historic one
Is the "unit." L'verybody who read the
llcuslon between "Coin" and Pro
fessor Laughlln, at all Intellectually
honeet. admitted that the unit was made
In tlm silver dollar by the act of 1793.
Hut the coined dollar Itself Is now put
in proof, as the lawyers say by profert
actual exhibition In court. And on
this coined dollar Itself are the words:
"One dollar, or unit, hundred cents."
These coins produced are of 17B5 and
1S02 Issued under the administrations of
Washington and Jefferson.
There is no getting round this evidence
from the mint. It was putting the fact
und the law on the coin ItBelf so that
the world might know that the silver
dollar wan the unit of value under the
constitution and laws. And this being
established, the fact remains that it was
the unit of value up to 1S73. The other
fact referred to by Governor Prince then
becomes eloquent that In all changes
of tho weight of coins in subsequent
legislation It was the gold coins that
were altered never the silver dollar It
Is easily understood now why. Because
it was the unit.
The gold men are thus driven from
their practical and historic positions
and left to their one resort their power
to buy, bully or deceive the people into
the fatal folly of abandoning the "unit"
money of the ages for that metal of
which thev have a corner on the supply.
That Is the question us it now stands.
Their false assumptions have been ut

Congressman Doolittle has JuBt re
turned from a trip to the scene of the
late unpleasantness between China and
Japan and is thoroughly Impressed with
the belief that it In possible for this
government to do much toward secur

now goes to Europe. He points out the
fact that the feeling of both govern

looks as if only our own neglect and
failure to meet the conditions which ex

It is by that ery act forcing the water

of Did entire proceeding is too plain for
argument. Thu flimsy pretext of preju

the groun4 that tlie judges are property

of a tallow dip would shine through it

covering the creek with n great arch

the needs of a double track railway,
but by establishing nn Intercepting
sewer from Orand avenue, the present
outlet of the big sewer, to 11 point in

P.y the execution of this plan, all the
sewage which Is now delivered to the
creek from the north will be Inter
cepted and carried away, no portion ot
which will :tgaln reach the ctcek.
The cause of the present pollution will
thus be removed by the construction of
a five foot sewer at small cost.
The plan proposed Is most desirable
and should receive the hearty support
of the board of public works and both
