The bcnrlholders snpposerl, when Ornnt
wns eleetfid and Schenck's pnblle credit bill
wns pnssed, thnt (bo huge swindle of cold
payment of the tlvo-twenly bonds wonld be
enrried out withont possibility of failure.
They hnd very good reasons for this oppo
sition, because niter the excitement of the
presidential campaign was over, there was
lor A few months, n partial nbnndnnment of
the discussion of tho question of the curren
cy redemption by the domocrntic press, nnd
a general Assumption by the republican
newspnpers thnt the question wns defln
it. lv s, tiled.
The way in which the campaign in Ohio
bus been opened, end tho bold And deter
mined manner in which Mr. l'cnilleton
presses iiion tho Attention of tho people
the results of Mr. Hotttwells swindling pol
icy will convince bondholders thnt tinw
are not ns secure as thy imagined them
selves t ) be a few weeks Ago. It ban been
the policy of the secrelury of Iho Irensary
to raise the premium on bonda, nnd in
crease the diU'-renco ill value between bond
His alleged reason for this wns to ad
vance the credit of the government so ns to
bo nblo to change tho form of the nntional
debt into onebenrintj n less rnte of interest
The true reason was a hojie. to get tho ques
tion of currency redemption out of the way
by bringing bonds to n iar with gold, or so
nenrly to tho gold level thnt the people
would ba accustomed to rcgnrd t'nein ns
equivalent to coin.
When he begun bis purchases of bonds,
theio wss but n slight difference between
their prico nnd thnt of currency. Tho pron
peet of continued nnd lienvy purchases of
the former, while no calculation or prov
ision wns nindi.' for the redemption of trms
ury notes, daily inc.-casc.l tho difference,
and this increase bs-e-served to make the
donations i -fleet ol his policy mora appar
ent. (In Ihe 1st of Jnuunrv fi-'JU's were selling

tlio tax pnyers upon the lact thnt they have
lost several miliums of dollars by thn in
crease of premium on the bunds, nnd the
pi-osii. et that within u short time no bonds
can lie bought at a discount is nlso deemed
tnatli r for cor.'.'ralulatinn.
It is not probable that tlio tnx-pnyersof
Ohio will be inillU'erciit to theao facts wlu n
preseiitiitnin of them shnll be mndo by Mr.
I'eiiiiletou, Tlio question of currency re
demption has been pushed to n point w liich
bus compelled the opponents ol Hint policy
to m know ii il-te that the government did
reserve to itself the privilege to redeem the
beiiils in currency. As ,K. crctary Iloulw. II
has la en shaving lion, Is I'm' the two months
I s. past, it is not for him or the republican
parly to say that tho government is bound
in honor l.i jay dollar tor dollar in coin on
all i l.i-i i.fi'.i imh btcdncss.
The advocates of currency redemption
h ive even thing to hope from di-cussiou f

q icslion will be tie.ited iu such A Htates
in.nilike manner ns to nt tract national at
