WELL WORTH READING.
SAother Phal.. ouf the Money Stringency
and It. Probable (au.es.
Itol The Progre..]
It is with profound deference to
you and your readers that I present
h some ideas on the question that is
wracking the public mind.
One of the greatest thinkers has
truly said that while the average man
is confident that he krows all there
is alout money, yet the question pre
pents mysteries that puzzle the wisest
statesmen, financiers and philoso
Your friend J. A. T.. of RIobeline,
some two weeks since gave you an
T able and admirable article on the
question of money, and founded si
lit is on sound reasons no one carn
question it, and yet that article is
misleading. because the author seem
ed to think that he knew and had said
all that could be said on the question
of money, when in fact he only treat
l ed money as an exchange ,of values.
when that is the mo.t simple aspect
of the question and doeis ot reach
further than the remote pursunits of
the uses, the properties and pow-rs
of money: andI he who knows noth
ing more of money than an e-
changer of values knows but little of
the portentious import involved in
- the question.
But it is money as a producer of
values: money as a conservator and
protector of values-and money as a
" distributor of values-that prevents
1 its grandest and most munificent
: powers. And as good and evil are
- interwoven in the web and woof of
r all things human.
t So money as a distributor of val
ues and money as a destroyer of val
ues are of the most dangerous pow
ers, and are menaces and threats to
liberties and well being of the people.
It is the business of both the pres
ident with his cabinet and Congress
to keep money in its legitimate chan
nels and is equally their duty to pro
tect the people from the unscrupu
lone gamblers who prostitute money 4
to the corruption of these gamblers,
Sho defy all honesty, and disturb the I
values of produce, and to throttle
those gigantic trusts and monopolies, 1
whose overpowering use of money I
buys their power to destroy the val- 1
ues of every one that stands in their t
Money is like the most volatile and t
insidious liquid, and like blood flows' a
to every molecule of the public body. f
and as water is subject to all the a
known laws of hydranlic., so money
is more uncertain in its po.vers. I
As a producer of values it gives
life and vitality to agriculture, to n
manufactures, to mining, fisheries,
lumbering, in thousands of ways. It
is the ajax titmouse of civilization, re
finement, and happy contented
homes so long as it is confined to its
legitimate powers and uses.
And min legitimate commerce and
banking it becomes the conservator
and distributor of values.
But when it falls into the hands of t
those Arabs of commc rce, the gam
blers in futures, over the careass of
the produce made by the toil and
sweat of labor money becomes a dis
tnrb r of values, and when in the
hands of combined millionaires in
corporated into trusts with the power
of eorruption of the government .t
-elf azs the :..:: to cru'h every in- I
tereast in corruption, moaey bxcomes ti
the arch destroyer of values. b
Now with all the boasted knowl- u
edge of science and hydraulics, the y
wisest blander and show their ignor- i
ance-how are they expected to be tl
infallable t) money? C
Take one instance, tresh in memo- h
ry, wise statesmen, grave scientific al
engineer, made a tour of inspection a
of our levees from the Arkansas line u
dewn, andthese maen after a· a
scienita ifiPcedo prnnsedpeo t

with panics; hundreds of manufac
turing companies and mines closed:
every bank inaccessible to any accom
modation; confidence shaken as by
an earthquake and over one hundred
thousand soldiers added to the grand
army of paupers and want!
And what are the reasons given byv
these wise statesmen for this appall
They advance no reason that is in
any way logical or satisfactory.
The wise men who inspected our
levees can only say in the language!
of Artemus Ward that the river slop
ped under and the levee slopped over;
,'equally wise are the reasons given by ,
our able statesmen as to the causes of
our financial distress.
They say it is all owing to an idiotic
and criminal want of confidence in
But the result of the suspensions
and inability to pay shows that the
want of confidence is neither idiotic
nor criminal, and that want of confi
dence seizes or the banks themselves
and so deep is the panic that not one
dollar can be had on the best security.
But throw aside these flimsy shams
and tell why this want of confidence.
Wadl street, importing prince mer
chants and European rings of trade
venture on another sham, and that is
that the Sherman act is the PandlJ
ra's box of all our woes; and this is
laughable did it not serve as a blind
to delude the people; for no man can
understand why the enforcement of
the coinage of four millions of good
legal tender money per month can by
any possibility add to the stringency
of the money market; in fact the ef
fect is directly to the contrary.
"Are ye -o blind ye cannot sŽee
The omens in the sky'
A: rve so deaf ve caernt heatr
The tramp of foemen nighi?"
The war is on! Revolution is at
the door. Europe dictates, the prince
importing merchants, the bankers
join in the howl that is intended to
force the single gold standard and
debase and demonetize silver and i
make it bullion to be bought np by
the government or any other huck
ster, for what it will bring in gold, ,
and this crusade of dishonor to the I
government is joined by all the mil- t
lionaire princes and by the adminis- 1
tration and its party.
The first blow is to be struck by an
unconditional repeal of the Sherman
act: and the pill is sugar-coated by c
flimsy practices that when convenient
silver will be put on a better basis!
It is now well settled that the party \
lines are drawn ,the lash is hissing i
in the air, and while not a prophet g
nor the son of a prophet, yet we will
see every representative from the a
cotton States vote for the repeal of c
the Sherman act as the entering h
wedge to force the single gold stand- t
ard and to debase the silver dollar to l:
the finctuating price of bullion.
Tais article has grown beyond m3
intention, and I close, and in a future
article I will give the reasons why
the cotton States will heartily join in
th's crusade against the best curreney
the world has ever seen.
LOUISIANA CHAUTAUQUA. g
Successful Session Just Closed. T
It is generally agreed that the five vi
weeks' session of the Louisiana Chan- d
tanqua, recently held at Roston, has C
been a brilliant snuccess. Had the s
wrk received a temporary check this e
year, it would not have been surpris
ing, when we take into consideration ft
the money strihgency, and the great w
Columbian Fair which has drawn S1
hundreds from the State, who, in part 3.
at least, would have helped to swell ve
the audience at Chantauqua to an- So

s attr:active; as, according to announce

readers had been called.

of ladies and gentlemen, young and

wt ug the platform.
C The exercises were opened with an
s invocation by Hon. W. H. Goodale

liant piano solo by Miss Olive Stand

Y girls and accomplished musicians.
After this, responsive readings asI
arranged by the National Chautauqua
were carried out by the class and
their leader, Prof. Henry E. Cham
Then came Prof. Chambers' achol
arly and beautiful address on "Greekl

certificates were awarded to the te

at the classes, and a diploma to Miss (i

"God be with you 'till ,we meet

danger of forgetting that the task oft
