this story is explained away, bis prot

FINANCIAL TROUBLE AND THE WAY
On tbe subject of finances our
newspapers and speakers are
Retting entirely too deep. They go
beyond their depth of knowledge
on the subject, and drown tbelr own
ideas and leave tbe people, wbo are
earnest seekers after the truth la tbe
terrible position of seeing tbeir teach
era disappear from sight, leaving no
of their teachings, bat illusive
views of one kind of currency or an
other which bas no sponsor left to
Gold is tbe acme of one; gold and
silver, with unlimited coinage of tbe
latter, it tbe idea of another ; gold and
liver, with tbe latter brought up to
par with tbe former, is tbe notion of
another; gold, silver and greenbacks
isalamble of Ill-assorted values, is tbe
stand-by of another; greenbacks is
tbe pet project of another ; while still
another cries "Good Lord, any kind
of money ; only give ns enongb.'
And thus ia a long-suSerlcg public
made tbe plaything of pet theories,
promulgated by would-be wise flnan
ciera. Thus are tbe people made to suf-
er at tbe bands of bigoted men, whose
ideas are to themselves the beginning
and tbe end of all things. Thus are
tbe people, tbe suffering people,
forced to stand idly, because no one
comes forward with a clear idea on
finances, and presents no clear far
reaching system of money for all-
money for tbe poor; for tbe rich,
for tbe laboring man, for the uaechan
ic, for tbe farmer, for the gentleman
of leisure, for tbe croaker in short
for everybody. It is astonishing that
In this great and glorious country
in Ibis country that boasts of that
bird of freedom, tbe glorlona eagl
some one ha not danced to the fore
with a system that should relieve all
our cares and wants.
Tbe subject of finances is a simple
one at least It seems so for
the simplest school boy will dis
cuss tbe subject as well as men of high
and low degree.
The subject is a simple one, and
this is tbe project that should lift us
from our financial depression and
give every one in this country all tbe
money he wants and set tbe wheels
of industry in motion :
1. Do away with the gold stand
2. Do away with all metal stand
2. Make tbe Intrinsic value of all
metals and commodities peculiar to
different classes of people tbe same.
That Is tbe foundation.
Now our Government is of and
from tbe people. As tbe finances are
discussed these days the people are
divided Into classes and each class is
entirely, or In a measure, independ
ent of tbe other. On this question
the class idea should be kept op.
Each class should have its own finan
cial theory and should establish the
kind of money It wants. Tbe farmer
should monetise that which is the
most advantageous to him ; the me
chanic the same way, and so on
through tbe line of classes tbe
laborer, tbe rich man, the manufac
turer, etc. This would give the peo
ple plenty of money and Just tbe kind
all wanted. There would be no stand
ard of value a very troublesome
thing and everybody could roll in
wealth. Of course there might not be
that stability about money that there
now though there is no great
trouble in that direction even now
but it would make no special differ
ence. When tbe mechanic wanted
wheat or merchandise he could take
his kind of money and go and buy it,
and tbe farmer would be forced to
take It When the merchant or
farmer wanted work done, the me
chanic would do It with pleasure and
take tbe kind of money that per
tained to tboae classes.
What should be used for money by
tbe different classes of people under
this wise system is laft for tbe parties
most interested to decide. In this
article an attempt is only made to
rough-sketch a plan by which all can
be rich and happy.
The matter Is entirely nnder the
control of the people, who are the
Government, and who are, or should
be, capable of "collaring" tbe subjeet
of finances and throwing it at an In
It Is unnecessary to enlarge on tbis

Senator Morton was attacked by
paralysis last week on bis return
from Oregon, where he has been en
gaged on a Congressional Investiga
ting committee. The attack is a
slight one And though it is the second
or third of the kind, there Is but lit
tle donbt of Mr. Morton's recovery.
Tbis sickness of Mr. Morton and tbe
supposition at first that he could not
recover, served to bring out expres
sions of opinions In regard to his ca
reer, from both Republican and Dem
ocratic papers that can but be very
pleasant to a man wbo bas been
abased and villlfled for years. As a
sample we reprint the following from
the New York Times :
Senator Morton is a man whom tbe
country cannot well afford to spare at
tbe present time, and It Is to be hoped
that tbe dismal prognostication about
tbe probable results of bis illness are
not well founded. It bas been tbe
fasblon with certain superfine critics
of public men to sneer at Morton as a
type of tbe coarse and vulgar politi
cal gladiator, whom tbe exigencies
of a stormy time raised to the
fictitious altitude of a states-
maa. Much as we have found
to condemn In tbe opinions, tbe
methods, and tbe affiliations of the
Indiana Senator, It would be folly to
deny blm tbe possession of that high
er Insight into tbe forces which create
public opinion and mold publie
policy, which is the characteristic of a
man fitted to shape the destinies of
States. We trust that tbe time is yet
far off when it will be necessary to ac
cord him the credit due for tbe great
and trying work which he did so well
as Governor of Indiana, as well as
for noble services In the cause of
tbe oppressed freemen, and vigorous
protests against the apathy which In
vited the danger of a disputed Presi
dency. There is still much work for
Mr. Morton to do, which few can ac
complish so well, and there are none
of his fellow-countrymen wbo will
grudge him the wish that the daunt
less energy and indomitable will
which have triumphed so long ovor
physical suffering may sustain him

Celebration at Bennington.
The one hucdredth anniversary of
tbe battle of Bennington was cele
brated on Wednesday and Thursday
of lat week at Bennington, Ver
mont. An Immense concourse of peo
ple were in attendance, chief among
whom were President Hayes, Secre
tary Evarts, Attorney-General
Devens and PostmaHter-General Key.
Tbe procession was tbe most impos
ing ever seen in Vermont, was over
three miles !n length the first day(
and numbered about 40,000 people,
and was witnessed by at least 23,000.
Tbe address of welcome was de
livered by Hon. E. J. Pbelpe, or Bur
lington, President of the Vermont
Centennial Commission, as follows :
I have but few words to offer, my
friends, in introducing the services
appointed for tbis occasion. The
State of Vermont commemorates to
day tbe one hundredth anniversary
of her birth, the termination the
bappy and prosperous termination
of tbe first century of her existence as
an independent State. To-morrow
we shall signalize one of tbe impor
tant victories of tbe Rsvolutionary
battle-fields. To-day is devoted to
those other victories not less fruitful
the victories of peace. To all who
have assembled here, whether friends
or strangers, to tbe distinguished
guests that grace tbis occasion with
tbeir presence ; to all tbe children of
Vermont who from near and far,
from many homes, have gathered to
honor the Centennial birthday of
their native State, I am charged en
her behalf to extend a kindiy, a cor
dial, a general welcome. Applause.
Larger and richer States might offer
you more splendid hospitalities, more
imposing ceremonies, more magnifi
cent aispiay ; ours are plain and sim
pie, sucn as Dene me nauiis or our
people and tbe character of those in
stltutions whose origin we now cele
brate. This day is consecrated to the
past, all tbe history, all tbe memories
oi toe century tbat is now closing up
on our commonweaitb, its early strug
gles, its vicissitudes, its hopes, it
fears, its steadfast march, tbe glory of
its ware, we security or its peace.
ah mose are upon us to-uay, and are
tbe appropriate topic of tbe hour.
Especially Is tbe day sacred to tbe
memory of tbe men who laid broad
and deep, in early days, the founda
tions under which we live, and not
only do we remember, at a time like
this, those distinguished leaders
whose names are as Household words
among us, but not tbe Jess do wehon
or the rank and file of the whole
noble generation or men who all tbe
days or their lives and through
all the avocations or their lives
gave to the service and welfare
of their State the best they bad. Un
named, unheralded for tbe most part,
they stand odt against tne horizon of
our history like the stately trees or
the primeval forest, which, like tbem,
rave passed away. I Applause. With
out their virtue, their patriotism, and
their efforts tbe master spirits would
have planned and toiled in vain ; and
we should remember that if there is
anything In our institutions that Is
worthy of being cherished, if there is
anything in tbese traditions which
are stronger than our institutions and
on which the .life of our Institutions
depends, it Is not our achievement,
it is our inheritance from tbem. I Ap
plause, They have all passed away,
that noble race. Some of tbeir im
mediate descendants are here among
our most welcome guests to-day, bat
the last of tbem has long ago been
gathered to his fatners. Few monu
ments mark their resting-places.
Few vestiges of their individual life
remain, but all around and about us
in tbe salutary laws that protect liber
ty, and the enlightened liberty that
upholds the law in everything that is
comprehended to us ander the belov
ed name of Vermont, is to be found
tneir monument, more du.-able than
marble, more beautiful than gold, and
if the business of tbis day has anv
significance, if the memories we are
here to recall have any value or serve
to point any moral, it is in teaching
us that if we would preserve tbe in
heritance we have received, we must
perpetuate likewise In our people tbe
character of tbe men from whom we
"Ill fare that Una, to hastening ills a prey ,
vruero wtmua accumulates ana men ue
cay." But If we would preserve our insti
tutions, we must maintain the old
landmarks, and stand fast by the old
traditions. And now, as we pause on
the threshold of the coming century
and review tbe lives and characters
and the labors of that first generation
of Vermonters, let us take to heart as
tbe great lesson of tbe hour, that if
we are to achieve tne salvation of our
institutions we must do it by emulat
ing their virtues and by imitating
their example. Applause.
NamerouB other speeches were
made by distinguished persons.
Thursday was the great day and one
long to be remembered in the history
of Vermont. It was a fcrand old
camp and stump meeting combined.
President Hayes was the first speaker.
He said :
Ladies and Fellow Citizens : I
need not say to you that I am grateful
for this greeting. I am greatly obliged
to those wbo bad charge of tbis cele
bration for tbeir courtesy in giving
me an opportunity to enjoy with
tbem the ceremonies of tbis day. I
am quite sure none of U3 will forget
its occurrence tne notable event or
the battle of Bennington so great
an event toward our national
Independence. I am sure we feel it
bas been fairly celebrated to-day. On
ly think of the procession tbat we
beheld an hour or two ago, Citizen
soldiers so disciplined soldiers from
Vermont, from Connecticut, from Mas
sachusetts, and New Hampshire, were
here. Applause. But more touching
than all tbe long procession, were the
veterans of tbe Union Army, surviv
ors of the 1,200 battles that saved tbe
nation and made liberty throughout
the world possible. Applause. And
what eye was not dimmed as we saw
proudly marching with his comrades
tbat maimed soldier walking with
his cratch. Bat, my dear friends, I
most not detain yon. I reeogoize
that among tbe pages of tbe speecb to
which wa bave listened packed
fall, as each page was, with interest
ing matter touching on tbat great
event of 100 years ago, tbat no one
page In it was more valuable than
this, tbat 100 years ago it was merit
orons to be a minute man to fight in
the cause of Independence. Is there
not some merit in my becoming a
minute man? Applause.
At tbe reception the President made
tbe following address :
"I will speak a few words to the
people with whom 1 have been shak
ing hands. We never reel quite well
acquainted with one another until we
bave heard each others' voices, and
bavtng an opportunity to make the
acquaintance or tbe people of tbis
most delightful part of the United
States, we want to talk a little. I
don't intend to say much myself, but
to call upon several gentlemen wbo
are associated with me in tbe Govern
ment, whom you will be glad to hear.
To begin with, I shall call upon the
gentleman wbo conducts tbe corres
pondence with foreign Governments,
and who writes tbe high sounding
words in the documents to which I
bave to put my signature. K you
ever see my name under such doc
uments you mast bear In mind tbat
they were written by your neighbor.
I hope be is neighborly. I will now
Introduce Mr. Evarts, tbe Secretary
of State or the United States."
Secretary Evarts responded as fol
Mb, President, Ladies, and Gen
tlemen : It is fair that I should warn
you that although I am very slow to
begin a speech, I am much slower to
end it, and I know your only safety is
in my retiring before I commence.
Secretary Key was next called for,
and said :
My Friends I should not tell jou
the truth if I should say tbat I appear
before you without a feeling of em
barrassment. Having come from a
seetion of the country remote from
tbis, for this is a large country, be
tween It and New England it always
appeared to me that there was a
strong antagonism. I thought I
would come up and help celebrate tbe
battle of Bennington. I remember
that the people of New Hampshire,
Vermont and South Carolina met
side by side in tbe battle-field and in
convention to frame the Constitution,
but slavery led to distracting conse
quences. New England was tbe cra
dle of liberty the citadel of liberty.
The white South had an interest in
the perpetuation or slavery. That
question is settled. To-day New Eng
land ideas prevail In the South, are
as free as you are, and tbat gulf which
separated us is closed, and I hope tbat
tbe time bas arrived when we shall
no longer feel that there is any North
or South, but tbat we bave one coun
try, which Is inseparable." Loud
Attorney General Devens and Wil
liam Hunt, of Louisiana, rollowed.
Three strong and enthusiastic cheers
were given for President Hayes, for
Postmaster General Key, for Attor
ney Genera! Devens, for Secretary of
State Evarts, and for Mrs. Hayes, and
for our country.
Tbe band played "Sweet Bye-and-bye,"
and hundreds of voices took up
Tbe following hymn and poem were pre
pared for this memorable occasion, and are
boih excellent :
HYMN FOR THE BENNINGTON CENTENNIAL.
One hundred years ; a nation's joys
Resound a'ong the prosperous way.
That Stark and bit Green Mountain boya.
Made onrs one hundred years tonlay.
For them the strife, the fears, the toil ;
For ns a century of calm.
The hero blood that wet the soil.
Oar gratc-fal hearts to-day embalm.
God bless the standard of the free,
God blesa the peaceful, happy land ;
Onr fathers' God, we lift to Thee
Onr praise for gifts on every hand.
And for onr country's honored head.
Our reverent lips ask this alone :
That Tbon will guide his feet to tread
In footprints of onr Washington.
Oar counselors with wisdom Oil ;
Let parties die, let factions cease ;
Let all men seek, with single will.
Our country's unity and peace.
Bo not In vain the patriot blood
Was poured upon the crimson clay.
Where, side by side, our fathers stood.
One hundred years ago to-day.
POEM FOR THE BENNINGTON CENTENNIAL.
On this fair valley's verdant breast
The calm, sweet rays of summer rest ;
And dove-like Peace benignly broods
On Its smooth lawns and solemn woods.
A century since, in flame and smoke.
The storm of battle o'er It broke ;
And ere the Invader turned and fled.
These pleasant fields were strewn with
Btark, quick to act and bold to dare,
And Warner's mountain band were there
And Allen, who had flung the pen
Aside to lead the Berkshire men.
With fiery onset blow and blow,
They rushed npon tbe embattled foe.
And swept his squadrons from the vale,
Like leaves before the autumn gale.
Oh ! never may the purple stain
Of combat blot these fields again ;
Nor this fair valley ever cease
To wear tbe placid smile of peace.
Yet here, beside that battle-field.
We plight the vow, that ere we yield
The rights for which our fathers bled,
Our blood shall steep the ground we tread.

tutency I demand it, tell me wby H.
B. Payne was invited to speak and
then shoved into tbe background?"
"It's too bad about Uncle Jabe,"
said Mr. T., musingly ; "he is, I am
afraid, too good to be lost, and not
good enough to be saved. What is
"Tbat Adam and Eve were the first
two men created, or something of that
sort. Now when at Put-in-Bay the
State Central Committee invited Mr.
Payne to speak on tbe 21st, and sub
sequently tbat invitation was revoked.
Was it because he was a hard money
"Hard money ? Hard money ?" and
Mr. Thompson seemed lost in
thought; "they do say Mr. Payne
worth is worth four or five millions.
Charley Foster! By the jumping
Jehoeepbat 1" And Mr. Thompson
was the next moment almost buried
in the arms of tbe handsome Repub
lican Congressman from tbe Tenth
District of Ohio.
He then turned to the reporter,
"My young, I may say my amiable,
friend let me ask a favor or you, r 1
tbat is tbat you won't publish any

conversation. It might bun me, yon

and call on me and by all means
labor with Uncle Jabe and show him
the error or bis ways. So-long!" and
John G. faded away toward the depot.
P resident Hayes, daring bis tour in
New England, has been called npon
to make numerous little speeches.
Daring bis brief stay at the Fabian
House, Wells River, N. H., he closed
a short address In tbese words :
"We are not gathered here for a po
litical purpose, and while we may dif
fer as to tbe ways and means, we will
all agree tbat tbe general government
must and should be administered lor
tbe common prosperity and common
benefit of all inhabitants in our coun
try. We may maKe mistakes, but
they will be from lack or judgment or
knowledge, and I trust it will not be
through or arise from lack or disposi
tion. I must leave yon now, but I
take great pleasure in introducing to
you Judge Key, a man tbat bas been
greatly wrong In the past, but is
greatly right now."
Somehow a story has got out in
North Carolina tbat Gov. Zeb Vance
is giving $5 and a cbromo to every boy
named after blm, and be is according
ly being pestered by exceedingly com'
plimentary letters from innumerable
namesakes in all parts of the State.

Chicago, III., Aug. 19. A report
was published here yesterday, by one
of the morning papers, relative to the
arrest of certain parties supposed to
belong to a gang of forgers, wbo bad
been operating extensively in mi.
city, New York and other pUc-s. In
quiry of the officials here failed to
elecit any definite facts, and tbe story
was generally discredited. It is now
known that, yesterday morning, Con
stable Hartmann arrested in tbis city
two men named Weston and Gesner,
on a charge of forgery. It appears
that these men, working in connec
tion witb a man named Stevens and
other accomplices throughout the
country, have for some time been car
rying on a system or iorgeries, from
wbtcn tbey bave realized very large
sums of money.
In January last, the Tliird National
Bank of New York was defrauded out
of $27,000, by means of checks pur
porting to have been drawn by Wins
low, Lanier & Co. About tbe same
time4 a check for $40,000, purporting
to have been drawn by tbe New York
Life Insurance Company on tbe
Union Trust Company, or New York,
was presented and paid. There had
been other similar operations known,
but never made public. Representa
tives ot New York houses employed
to investigate tbese forgeries bave
been following up suspected parties
for several months, and nave round
that the leader of the gang is a man
of wealth and respectability, named
Stevens, alias Henderson, who has
been known bere as a speculator in
grain and stock. Next to him comes
Nelson A. Gesner, a wealthy man or
Minnesota and formerly member of
tbe Legislature of that State.
Associated with them was one
E. B. Weston, of this city,
formerly a real estate agent.
Upon examining Oe3ner'a trunk af
ter his arrest, it was found to contain
a large assortment of implements nec
essary to bis profession, including
inks, microscopes, acids, brushes, pecs,
tracing implements, &o. In Weston's
possession were found a number of
washed drafts, on which everything
had ben obliterated by acid except
tbe cashier's signature. When deal
ing In drafts, it was the custom to bay
tbem for a amall amount, and then
obliterate with acid all tbe ink marks
except tbe cashier's name. Before
this was done, however, a careful
tracing was taken. Then, when lar
ger amounts were written in on tbe
face of tbe draft, tbey bad on tbe trac
ing aac simile of tbe number, of tbe
letters, and of the figures, wbich were
used ia tbe the greater amounts. In
dealing in checks, tbey would learn
from some one In a bank or the office
of a firm depositing in a particular
bank, Jutt how the deposit account
stood, in order not to overdraw tbe
account. It is said that some forged
checks bave been drawn for sums as
high as $73,000.
Tbe developments so far indicate
tbat these men are part or an organ
ized gang or the most dangerous for
gers tbat have operated for years. It
is estimated that they have swindled
various banks out of millions or dol
lars. Stevens was arrested near Grand
Haven, yesterday, and is now on bis
way to New York. Tbe officers hav
ing in charge Weston and Gesner left
for New York with their prisoners
yesterday evenin g.
NEW YORK, August 17.
Central and Hudson River Railroad
will soon get the benefit of tbe $100,
000 promised them by Wm. H. Van
derbilt. The amount was to be divid
ed equally according to tbeir position
on tue payroll among all tbe em
ployes, excepting executive and de
partmental officers and such as were
not directly engaged in operating tbe
road. Tbe apportionment of tbis sam
was placed in tbe hands of Isaac P.
Chambers, tbe General Auditor. He
bas compleuHl it, ana says tbat out of
tbe 11, Ou J men S.904 will participate in
tbe gift. Tbe division, as made by
bim, gives the passenger conductors
eaeh $3), train baggagemen $10,
brakemen $0. freight conductors $13,
eneineers $30, firemen $13. flagmen
$S, switchmen $9, laborers and watch
men Si, mecnanics 4, foremen io,

This is just about equivalent to three
months' reduction or me iu per cent.
REPUBLICANISM IN FRANCE.
REPUBLICANISM IN FRANCE. Speech of Gambetta.
GambetU, some days ago, made a
great political speech at Lille, the
publication of wbich bas been hither
to prevented by fear of censorship.
Gambetta expressed great confidence
at to tbe result of the election, and
spoke with bis usnal bitterness
against Bonapartists, whom he stig
matized as the party of invasion.
He said : The charge or latent Radi
calism which was brought forward as
an excuse for dissolving tbe Chamber
was ambiguity and ralsebood. Rela
tive to the assertion or reactionary
papers that President MacMahon will
not be obliged to submit to tbe will or
tbe Nation, as expressed by tbe com
leg elections, Gambetta said tbat it
is in vain tbat such things are said,
or rather allowed to be said, in the
hope tbat tbey will cheer tbe failing
hearts of the Government auxiliaries.
When the sole authority to wbich all
most bend bas pronounced, do not
think that any one is strong enough
to oppose it. Do not think when mil
lions of electors of tbe free soil of
France bave made tbeir choice, tbat
there will be one, whatever be his
degree, tbat could resist it. Believe
me, when France has pronounced
her sovereign will, there most either
be a submission or a resignation.
Among other things the New York
Times discusses the accordion as a
musical instrument. We give tbe fol
lowing extract :
There is a so-called musical instru
ment wbich is variously known as
tbe accordion, tbe concertina, or tbe
harmonica. It is modeled upon the
common domestic cat. If a cat is
either violently squeezed together or
pulled out to an unusual length tbe
result is a note, or series of notes, of
peculiar sharpness and or a reed-like
quality. There is no malignant musi
cian wno la not well acquainted witb
the cat's capabilities as a sound pro
ducer, but few men can play on a cat
in a way to satisfy a critical audience.
Indeed, tbe cat is probably the most
difficult or all musical Instru
ments, and, though small boys
frequently attempt to play
It, an accomplished cat virtu
oso ie extremely rare. As a substi
tude for the cat, some nameless vil
lain, many years ago, invented tbe
concertina. Tbis nefarious instru
ment is played by alternately squeez
ing and pulling it precisely as though
it were a cat, and tbe sound which is
gives forth is a very close imitation or
tbe sound or the former Instrument,
although a trifle more nasal in its
timbre. Unfortunately, tbe concerti
na is as easy to master as the cat is
difficult ; and it is hence the favorite
instrument of tbe Idle and depraved.
One small boy of 10 years of age bas
often, with tbe aid of a single concer
tina, depopulated a whole neighbor
hood. Tbe only objection tbat can be raised
to tbe foregoing Is tbat it Is treating
tbe cat unfairly in the comparison
The Cincinnati "laboring men'
have not departed from the usual tra
ditions of such movements. Tbeir
candidate for Governor wrings the
perspiration from his noble brow by
daily toil at stamping his seal as
United States Commissioner npon
documents. Tbeir condidate for
Treasurer gets bis daily bread by
grimy toil with tbe scissors and paste-
pot as a Journalist. Their candidate
for Clerk of tbe Supreme Court is
played-out political back and ward
manager, whose principal muscle Is
in his cheek. Toledo Blade.
