"The commercial value of a dollar,"
says the Baltimore Sun, "is the value of
the metal in it, the stamp on it being
merely a certification by the government
that it has a certain weight and fineness.
In transactions within the United States
this truth is obscured by the success of
the government's policy of keeping
lightweight silver dollars and even green
backs (promises to pay dollars) at par
with gold dollars by means of a gold
reserve, but it is made 'clear when trans
actions between different countries are
considered. In international commerce
coin passes virtually by weight and the
government stamp gives it no value.
Our silver dollar, though worth intrin
sically only about .30 cents, passes for
100 cents because by the act of 1S90 the
government is pledged to the policy of
keeping all dollars at par with the gold
dollar, which is effected, as already
stated, by keeping up' a reserve of gold
($100,000,000) to exchange for other dol
lars on demand. It was the fear that the
government would not longer be able to
maintain this policy owing to the run
on the gold reserve that caused the
recent panic, and it is President Cleve
land's determined borrowing of gold to
maintain the reserve that has restored
ccnfilence and prosperity. Gold does
not now circulate as plentiful as in
former times because people prefer to
handle paper money when tho latter is
redeemable in gold on demand.
"At the close of President Cleveland's
first term, in March, leS9, the cash bal
ance was $.i:0,:;4S,!310, and the treasury
had available 520(5,080,014 in gold, or
$lflG,flS0,614 over and above the required
5100,000,000 u-old reserve ; at the close of
President HarrNon's administration the
gold reserve was 5100,000,000, and the
entire cash balance, including the gold
reserve, was but 5102,430,577. Mr. Cleve
land had paid off 5341,453,440 of the pub
lic debt; Mr. Harrison SlOo.000,000 less.
It will greatly surprise the news
paper fraternity as well as the buiness
and social communities to learn that Mr.
Charles D. Pearce, Vice President and
active business manager of the Courier
Journal, will leave that concern in a few
days. As a matter of fact, Mr. Pearce
handed his resignation in last May and
it took effect July 1.
Mr. Pearce has been Vice President of
the Courier-Journal Company for eleven
year3, and in the semi-retirement of Mr.
Haldenian, he has virtually been its
President, directing and looking after
its active and fiuancial management.
Though occupying a position that did
not bring him directly in contact with
the public, business men identified him
closely with the paper and the news of
his resignation will cause great surprise.
Asked as to its cause Mr. Pearce said:
' It is purely personal. Bruce has never
liked me. He has made the work so dis
agreeable to me by his captious inter
ference that it came to the pass that he
or I one had to get out. Of course I
could not ask his father to discharge him,
and I preferred to resign thau to put up
with him any longer."
It has been no secret among their
friends that Mr. Pearce and his brothers-in-law,
the Haldeman brothers, did not
entertain friendly feelings toward each
other, the relations between Mr. Pearce
and Mr. Bruce Haldeman being especially
Mr. Pearce is a man of recognized bus
iness ability, and his methods of conduct
ing the business department of a news
paper have been highly approved. He
will experience no difficulty in finding a
responsible position in New York or Chi
cago. In fact it was arranged that he
should take charge of the Chicago Her
ald upon the recent death of its late pro
prietor. Its former owners had entered
into negotiations for its re-purchase, but
Kohlsaat stepped in and outbid them.
Mr. Pearce is particularly well-known to
Mr. Walter Phillips, of New York City,
General Manager of the United Press
Association, and to the writer a few days
ago, Mr. Phillips said: "I regard Mr.
Pearce a man of marked business ability.
He is thoroughly familiar with the finan
cial side of a newspaper, and in that ca
pacity he has few equals anywhere."
Mr. Pearce came here from Maysville.
Hi3 father is now a wealthy banker in
that town. His father desires him to re
turn and take charge of his estate, but
Mr. Pearce does not relish the idea of
living in such a small place as Maysville.
Mr. Pearce is a member of the Pendennis
Club and his intellectual equal is rarely
found at a club dinner. His leaving
Louisville will be sincerely regretted.
KILLED IN TEXAS,
Mr. Joseph Hebel Struck by a Falling
