IT IS A FORGERY.
The Alleged Quotation From
an English Paper.
THE LOND01T FINANCIAL NEWS
Promptly Denounces tlie Shameful mis
representation It Says That No Such
Ai. "lo Was Ever Printed Therein and
That Its Whole Tenor Is Directly Op
posed to the Views Held by That Paper
on Free Stiver III the United States.
The Democratic papers have been
printing beneath bold headlines nn ex
tract purporting to come from the Lon
don Financial News of March 10, 1890.
It represents The News as saying,
among other things.
"The condition of affairs in the United
States congress demands tho immediato
attention cf the British financiers and
statesmen. The trade of the world is
now in onr hands, but it will not long
remain thero if the United States goes
to a bimetallic basis with froo and un
limited coinage of silver.
"With the addition of silver to the vol
ume of money, everything in America
would tal:o on a now f.tce j labor and in
dustry would gain a new life. The
grip of the gold standard on the prod
ucts of tho world would be loosened and
prices would rise. Great Britain would
lose her markets in South America,
Asia, Europe, and American ships would
not bo long in capturing tho carrying
trado of the world.
"It is dou-tiul whether the Republi
can party can be held much longer in
check by sound money statesmen, as its
adherents are divided" by powerful fac
tions. The Democratio party is also
breaking up under the weight of the
free silver agitation. It matters not to
Great Britain which party succeeds if
tho gold standard is maintained, but
either of the old parties or a now party
which goes into power pledged to fret
coinage will bo inimical and prejudicial
to English manufactories and trade."
This alleged quotation boro on its
face indications of improbability. Ii
was a lying campaign forgery and the
evidence 13 now at liana to disprove it
It was referred to tho Loudon 1 inanciai
News and in its issue of Aug. 13 that
journal says explicitly :
"No Suoh article Was over printed by
us, and Its whole tenor Is directly op
posed to thu view wo have taken of the
effect of free sllvei In the United States.
80 far from advocating free sliver coin
age, vre have persistently pointed out
that It spell repudiation and the with
drawal of ah European capital."
Never was a raoro brazen fraud at
tempted than this forgery. It is evi
dence of free silver desperation no less
than proof of tho utterly unscrupulous
character of the hirelings of the silver
mining kings. It is as true as most of
the statements alleged in support of
free silver, however. The main nope of
the free silver agents is in forgery and

offered daily at the
Colombia's Free Silver Experience.
The World published on Thursday
some very interesting facts about the
results of free silver coinago in Colom
bia, as set forth by the American minis
ter to that republic. The experiment
which Mr. Bryan and his followers wish
to make here of lifting 53 cents' worth
of silver by legislative fiat to tho value
of 100 cents was made in Colombia a
few years ago. The advocates of tho ex
periment were working, as Mr. Bryan
says ho is, to "restore the parity be
tween monoy and property." They
passed a law making it optional for the
government to meet its obligations in
either gold or silver. When tho law
was passed gold, which had been at 20
per cent premium, disappeared from the
country, and is now at" a premium of
190. Wages have advanced about 50
per cent, but provisions havo advanced
SiOO per cent, and house rents from 100
to 200 per cent, and clothing has be
come so dear that only the poorest qual
ities can be bought at all. Mr. Bryan
says he Is seeking to get for tho laboring
men of this country a "dollar which is
as kind to the man who produces wealth
as it is to tho man who holds it in in
vestment." and ho believes a silver dol
lar is possessed of those humane and
thoughtful attributes ; but is there any
reason to bolievo that cilvor will behave
any better when embodied in a cheap
American dollar than it has done in a
cheap Colombian dollar or a cheap Mex
ican dollar? It has not in either of
these cases been at all "kind" to tho
Eroduocr of wealth or tho man who has
eld it in investmentbut has acted as
n heartless fioud toward both. It hns
not, it is true, run away in the coward
ly manner of tho gold dollar ; it has
stayed with tho people, but tho peoplo
do not seem to have enjoyed its com
pany. Tho Nation, July 23, 1S0G.
Ilryan's "I'acU'' Not Pacts.
Many of the statements made by Can
didate William J. Bryan in his careful
ly prepared speech for freo silver aro
being riddlod by tho business men of
this town who say that tho Boy Orator
based lib theories upon assertions which
are palpably incorrect. A samplo of his
nrguments is tho contention that under
the gold standard railroad rates have
not been reduced to keep paco with fall
ing prices. Easily obtainable statistics
show that tho contrary is truo. On this
point President E. B, Thomas of the
Eno railroad said :
"There has been a continued and gen
eral reduction in freight rates for 25
years. Take, for instance, tho cost nf
shipping wheat between Chicago and
New York. In 1872, tho year beforo
the demonetization of silver, tho rate
was 83.50 cents. In J8S2 it was 14,01,
in 1K02 14.23 and last year it was 12-.17.
The proportionate reduction has been
greater, therefore, than tho fall in the
price 01 wheat in tho samo time.
"Tho samo thing holds true in othn
agricultural products. In 1H7K tho rate
of cattle east bound was fiO centaon
provisions fiO and on corn 40. Now tho
rates are 21.80 and 15 cents. Nowhere
else in tho world are freights carried as
cheaply as ia this country. The facts
are all against Mr. Bryan's statement,
and if his financial arguments havo nc
better foundation, hels in need of eht.

"Afraid of tho Hon I" exclaimed a
well-known rinimdl trainer, a. few days
ago, In reply to my inquiry. "Not a

the oiilmal is riot, held in strict subjec

and a trainer who would 6how the least
hesitation or fear would bo a' lost man."
The speaker was J. T. Sweeny, in,
charge of the Lincoln park (Chicago)
zoological garden and for many years
the boss-animal man at one of tho leadr
ing circuses. Mr. Sweeny branched off
into n general discussion of animal
"Training animals," he said, "is not a
single art Tho method. of training
wild ohd ferocious beasts differs radic
ally from; that pursued wlUisuch, intel
ligent anlmala as horses, dogs and ele
phants. Teaching birds is ah entirely
distinct department, and tho system
employed in tho training of. insects Is
unique. With a competent trainer the
danger element is almost nil. Acci
dents are always due to carelessness of
6ome kind. When the trainer visits his
Uon or panther tho first time, the ani
mal Is securely tied, to the floor of the
cage. The trainer moves about it, pets
it and feeds it with pieces of meat.
Gradually the ropes are loosened; then
only a collar and chain are used, and
finally these also are removed. Indi
vidual animals differ in character just
like men. Some are coaxed Into tho per
formance of tricks, and others must
have obedience beaten into them. You
may whip a stubborn fellow and whip
him hard without incurring the slight
est danger of being attacked. The
strongest lion crouches before you ap
parently unconscious of his power.
Tigers are most liable to give trouble.
Lions are comparatively mild; leopards

havo seen the apparently wonderful
'feats of animal intelligence. These arc
simply mechanical motions acquired
after the trainer has spent months and
years of patience in teaching theni. The
'few simple devices of playing upon the
fears of the animals and of rewarding
them when trlclts are well jiorformed,
are. alone used.
"The cage life has made all these an

tremely nervous, and it is through fear

formed the feat, he is rewarded with n
dainty morsel. As tho trick is re
peated and repeated, the sound of my
snapping finger and the animal's own
aet.of jumping become sp, firmly co
ordinated in his brain that ttfh'e one
necessarily lends to the other. He for
gets the fear, and docs the trick without
being conscious of its meaning. In llko
manner my cats seat themselves In
groups. Each is taught individually to
tako its particular position on tho ros

again at a certain signal. Then all the
animals are brought together, and at
the signal tlie whole group arranges it

haven't done much at that I was ac
quainted with one famous trainer who
traveled with our circus from-time to
"The fellow had two dozen birds who
went through a regular sham battle.
They arranged themselves on two sides
in line of battle and had toy cannotls,
which they ignited by pulling a striag
attached to tho trigger. At each shot
one of the birds dropped down as if dead
and was carried out pf tho way by its
companions. Some of tho birds car
ried sticks and flags, with which they
rushed against their opponents. The
trainer told me that he had spent
months in. training a single bird. Hun
ger Is the only agent that will overcome
their natural timidity. Thus, while 1 he
cannon is exploding, tho bird is sig
naled and fed simultaneously. It will
fly away from tho noise, but If it gets no
other food, it will approach ngain nnd
will finally remain when It finds that
the explosion does no harm. The bird
learns to pull a string by having its
food placed in a vessel on a eliding
plane outside the. cage. A string tied
to a essel leads into the cage. When
the bird gets hungry it pecks at every
thing within reach, and will soon learn
that by pecking at the string it muy
pull Its food, into tho cage. Tho bird
trainer taught his pets to take thlngb

which they were not permitted to pick

captive by means of a fine thread that
fs slipped in a noose over their slender
vaists. Sly friend has a score of them
nnd he feeds them all himself every
morning by putting them on his arm,
you know. The beginners aro first
taught to walk, which consists simply
,in unteaching them the art of hopping.
iThis is done by tying the flea's chain to
a round niece of card-board revolving
'on a pin for a pivot. Vhcn the flea tries
to hop he comes down with a thump and
Jic soon finds out that the only way to
get there is to get the card revolving by
moving along in a slow walk. Some
times my friend puts his fleas into a
glass jar where they bump their heads
so hard by hopping that they soon give
up tho practice. When the fleas had
learned to walk he tied them to Lill
putlan coaches of the most delicate
workmanship. He assigns some of
ihls prisoners to playing horse and' tics
others in an upright position on the

are very strong and can pull three to
