AN HUMBLE APOLOGY.
In "The Forum." In yesterday's Issue
of this paper, a correspondent, evi?
dently In a misguided moment and
most tin though ted)y, does a gro->? in?
justice to the memory of Washington,
Jefferson and Henry, and men of that
Our correspondent brings <>i<t some of
their services to the country, their
manner of holding office, of seeking of?
fice and of always submitting their
claims TO THE PEOPLE, and seeks to
draw a contrast with the present Vir?
We would willingly allow, the inci?
dent to pass unchallenged but thai
these men are dead and cannot Bp nk
Jefferson and Washington and even
Patrick Henry did the best they c >uld,
"angels could do no more.'' They were
young and inexperienced, or they would
never have acted In such an unpolitic il
manner. Why should not our present
office holders he greater stdtcsmi n an I
ect more wisely? Have they not a
great leader to organise? Whnl t\l I
Washington or Patrick Henry or Thorn
as Jefferson, the father of Dcmocra y.
know about "managing." Tiny sub?
mitted everything to tho people and
allowed the people to have their chol e
of nominees. Of course, litis Is not pol?
itics, but Jefferson knew no better, and
It Is not proper nor becoming at thin
late day to contrast him with such
men as Senator Martin! What did Jef?
ferson ever do, that Iris record coul i
be put beside that of Mr. Martin?
Ali, but It is said that Jefferson and
Washington were friends of the pooph
and got their offices because the people
wanted them. And so is Mr. Martin n
friend of the people. Docs lie no!
know more about selecting candid ttcs
for office than the people! Docs he m
in fact, know better than the poop!
do, that ho is the most suitable man In
Virginia for U. H. Senator'.' In fact, In
he not the only man In Virginia, n it
an oilicc holder or dependent, that d
know he is suitable for the office of II.
As much as we should regret to ico
the memory of Henry and his oratory,
or Jefferson and his statesmanship, or
Washington and his sword, tllmmi i by
one greater than they; as much n v ?
dislike to feel our veneration for to ?
great men of old, falling away, we sub?
mit that the State cannot afford to
keep Mr. Martin's light under a bushel,
In all of which our correspondent
What did Jefferson or Washington ? r
Madison know of "organisation?" From
whom did Henry get his strength bul
the people!! But lure Is one greater
than he, for may It not lie said of Mr.
Martin, that he and his friends do no)
consult tho people, but he actually
keepB them from voting!! When he
gone, may no scribe dim the rei ord of
any other statesman by unfortunate
contrasts. Let the bones of poor old
Jefferson ami Henry und Washington
lie quietly moulding away. Let their
memories, as great men, ntill remain
with us, and dim It nol because they
had no such lender as Mr. Martin and
no "organization." They cTld the best
they could with the lights before them,
and besides, the people ami not th?
politicians, run the government and se?
lected candidates In'those'days. . .
Let ua still think of their Rhn.de?
with respect, although if they lived
to-day, they might still be childish and
unstatcsmanlike enough to submit their
candidacy to the people.
Although they are slow in ^realizing
It, and getting into their proper places,
tho people have nothing to do with tin
Offices, but to vote. Of course they must
yote or be rend out of the party. The
Afflce holders of the h-tatc, men of cx
perlenco, men who do nothing but hold
ofllce, have the (-election of candidates
In hand!! They know better than the
people and It Is doubtless the able as?
sistance of these statesmen that has
raised up among us one so great, that
like Ajax, he could defy the elements!!!
THE BANKS AND BUSINESS.
The New York Financier of August
Mth tries to keen a stiff upper Up and
a ch( erful countenance, for it would be
demoralizing indeed 1f the chief herald
of prosperity, that has been whooping
up a sort of millennium in business, as?
sured by immense European and otljer
foreign balances of trade in our favor,
by vast Inflows of gold from Alaska,
Australia, Africa and all cuarters of
tlie globe, should now weaken and join
the calamity howlers. It is forced t>
tell some tlvings, nevertheless, or bo
left: and so we learn from it that "the
reserves of the New York Clearing
banks show an uncomfortably small
margin of excess. Chicago, Cincinnati,
Plttsburg nnd other cities have been
loaning at this centre. ? ? * Bankers
are not looking for two per cent, call
money, but two :>cr cent, call money
is not one of the blessings <>f finance
that it is sometimes imagined. This
country, with Its great volume of
money, is doing a business that keeps
in active use every dollar that can be
spared, and if the demand -an be
maintained, no better augury of tie
future should be required."
LlUt it Is evident from this that mow y
in New York City is growing uncom?
fortably tight nnd scarce, and the
Financier lias to beurteil its clients and
readers by hopeful references to foreign
balances and our unsold and future
chops. Yet, says the Financier, speak?
ing of commctclnl paper:
"Toe BUPDly seems to he Increasing,
hut the absorption is equal to all new
offerings, i: ites are from i'i to 4*4 per
c< nt. for best endorsed hills, sixty to
ninety days, and from 4'.. to .". and up
to 0 per cent- for double names to sis
mouths, according to grade."
Alluding to the recent Treasury issue
of (10,000,000 gold certificates. the
"The resumption of the Issue of gold
certificates di es not of itself add one
dollar to the circulating medium of tho
country, a fact which a considerable
p ;i of the American press finds it
difficult to understand. The gold certi?
ficate has been aptly termed a ware
h use rccclnt for sne-Jle. That is ex?
actly what it Is, and while It Increas ts
the fluidity of tin- currency, it cannot
of necessity add to tho volume ? f ?.
f :? the simple reason thai behind each
dollar as represented in the certificate,
there Is a dotier in gold withdrawn
from active circulation. The only
effect which the re-issue of this f irtn
of i:i mey can hnvc is to relieve the ex?
isting demand for a larser percentage
of small notes in circulation. It will
also increase the facilities of transfer?
ence ot money from one section of the
country to the other, a matter which
at this time and in view of the prevail?
ing conditions, is of considerable im?
portance to commerce in general."
The Vlrglnlan-PIIot some time ago
called attention to the fact that this
B 'M certificate issue added nothing to
out- money or currency, nnd as the
smallest of the denominations is 120, it
cannot be tiny great relief to the people
or current business that need small
The Financier confesses or claims
that hanks, as n rule, nttended to their
own business, and with success, until
IS 6, when they Identified themselves
with the Republican party nnd th?
mi ney moil poly, or trust; but the fact
is ilia: he banks were active in pro?
curing silver; demonetization in 1873, as
they had previously fastened a ten per
cent. Federal tax en the Issues of all
Hinte tftnks. Nor have they sine,, re?
tired from politics, which Is regarded
as it permanent pari of their "btisl
m ss." Says the Fimmel >r:
"Until 1890 the banks hnd refrained
from participating In elective contests,
but that year witnessed the spectacle
of strong hhd conservative institutions
arrayed sdlidly against, an assault on
the Integrity of Ihe nation's credit; nnd
espousing openly and unselfishly a
political platform that declared for cer?
tain theories end facts which these In?
stitutions held to be for the benefit of
the i tin try as a whole, nnd not for
their particular benefit alone."
That is pari of an editorial urging .-ill
tin- New York banks to join the Finan?
cier and tile Anthracite foal Trust
against the use of soft coal in ami
about tin? cily for any purp- Win:
a. fall is this: from defending "the lh
t Rrlty of the nation's credit," to help?
ing a city coal-deal! Fie. Financier!

conic down, like a peaceful morning,

are hushed in their noisy clamor, and
trip from bough to hough with only a

HOW IS THIS r
Yes: how Is this? It Is the Irrepressi?

the Interrogatory occurs: how is
this? Here Is tho State Committee,
every district and city committee,
every county committee, all tho solid?

all tampered with, and the same song
has been put into their mouths. And
the Index-Appeal and other "bulwarks
of liberty "say that all this Is the re?
sult of a campaign?an appeal to the
Never wore a people more astonished
than to learn that all these things had
been accomplished without their knowl?
edge, much less with their consent.
Even the "campaign" of 1893, noiseless
as it was. was a tornado compared to
this felt-shod preliminary march in the
dark to capture all positions and out?
posts accessible to secret and sub?
terranean approach. Not only has the
capture and recruiting and enlisting
been going on diligently, under the
system of bounties, rewards, promises
and promotions adopted, but the men
have been put through a course of dis?
cipline and drill, without tap of drum,
that makes the organization more than
a machine?an automaton that needs
only the touch of the master hand.
And this is called a "campaign." "a
popular campaign," with tho people
left out entirely?not in it, nor of it;
they ate only to vote, as they are told.

France, Germany, Russia and possibly

trial, which has grown to be of such
importance as even to -threaten the
prosperity of the French people. For

what will be the denouement'.' Fortu?
nately the French government has by
its measures with General de Negricr
and others of late shown that it is now
in stronger hands than when Dreyfus
was convicted, and there is slight rea?
son to hope that the whole truth may
be brought out and only the guilty be
made to suffer.
Captain Dreyfus has affirmed and
reatllrmed his innocence in a manner
that carried conviction to the mind of
every unprejudiced man. The Anti
Dreyfusites will not be convinced, and
may be able to again secure Iiis con?
