There are already two presidential
tickets in the field—the middle-of-the
road populist and the social democracy.
The two big ones are yet to come, but if
there is anyone hankering for a presi

but to let his wants be known.
For the past eighteen months the im
ports into this country from the island
of Puerto Rico have paid and are still
paying the full rates imposed by the
Diogley law, remarks the Seattle Pont-
Intelligeucer. No democratic sympathy
for this burden upon the Puerto Ricans
was felt or expressed until the proposition
was advanced to knock off 85 per cent.
of the tax and turn the whole revenues
over to the Puerto Rieans for their own
use. Regard for the interests of the
Puerto Ricans has very little to do with
the attitude of the democratic party on
the pending bill.
The news from Clarke county, long one
of the populistic strongholds of the
■tate, shows the fute awaiting that
organization in other parts of Washing
ton. A baker'H dozTi of populists—
about all that were left in the county
met and resolved to go over to the dem
ocrats. But they were somewhat late,
as the individual members had longtince
deserted, many to the republican party.
It is easy for a few self styled leaders to
say that what is left of populism shall
be delivered, bound and gagged, to de
mocracy; but the delivery is quite an
other thing. This move of the Clarke
county populis's means little.
The returns from the preliminary in
quiries made by the census department
furnish evidence of the material progress
made in arid America and give promise
of an advance in the twentieth century,
exceeding the wonderful development of
the liisdissippi valley during the past
decade. The boundary line, which so
long has divided the arid and humid
regions, will no longer stay the onward
march of agriculture. To-day it is real
lz.il that just beyond that line lies an
empire greater and far more resourei fol
than any yet Dnconquered. With the
narrowing of the unoccupied limits of
government lands in the humid zones
the question of reclaiming the arid and
eubhumid regions grows in importance.

the wisest minds of the nation.
The democratic party of thin state
was ko paralysed bj the defeat fusion
MMtained at Seattle that the leaders
did Dot know where to turn to revive
the courage of the raDk and file, says
the Lincoln County Times. The rene
gade republican, Senator Turner, came
to the rescue of his democratic friends,
and induced Bryan to make a flying trip
to the coast in hopes that his presence
would galvanize into life the stupefied
rag baby. The democratic candidate
for president will be in the state the last
of the month and talk in several cities.
He will also be run over into ( ►regon for
the purpose of dragging that state out
of (he lire in the sprinir election. Mr.
Bryan iH wanting his time. He advo
cates pulling down the flag in the I'nilip
pines and wtill harps on cheap money.
Those issues will rally no following on
the coast. He would make votes by
staying away, and at the same time
nave the pockets of the democrats of the
state the strain necessary to pay the ex
penses of getting the man of mouth this
far from the storm center, which is Ne
braska this year.

Congressman \V. L. Jones made this
characteristic talk to democrats on the
floor of the house the other daj :
"Our government will be hint what
our people make it. As long as we are ti

and liberty an yours. There is no mure

you feel better, I suppose. It was mo in
Washington's time. You called him a
despot; you said that he, who had ele

despotism. But it did not nor will it
now. We will go right along treating
our new territories with ail the justice
ami humanity for which we are noted.
"Two thirds of your anxiety is for po

Democratic newspapers throughout
the country are beginning to line up for
the campaign in an appeal to the pro
ducers and workingmen in general which
needs to be compared with their argu
ments to the same audience in 1896,
says the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. We
hear now that rising prices do not bring
good times. It has to be admit tod that
business is good and employment easy
to obtain at wages far above the aver
age. To offset thi.s the partisans de
clare that, the laborer iw no better off,
because the prices of the commodities
which he uses have so advauced that his
earnings will purchase no more satisfac
tion of his needs than they did formerly.

have so stimulated our industries; and

COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, MARCH 23, 1900.
THE <;OM> STANDARD LAW.
I,yma» J. (ia^'o, secretary i.f the trea-urv,
explains the new gold standard law, as | i
by both houses of congress and wij-r ned by the
president, as follows:
The financial bill has f..r its object what its
title indicates—the fixing of the standard of
value and the maintaining at parity with that
standard of all forma of money, issued or
coined by the United States.
]t reaffirm* that the unit of value is the dol
lar, consisting of 25 8-10 grains of gold, 8-10
tine, but from that point it goes on to main it
the duty of the secretary of the treasury to
maintain all forms of money issued cr coined
at a parity with this standard. It puts into
the hands of the secretary ample power to do
that. For that purpose the bill provides the
treasury bureau of i-sue and redemption and
transfers from the general fund of the treas
ury's cash $150,000,000 in gold coin and bul
lion to the redemption fund, that gold to be
used fur the redemption of United States
notes and treasury notes. That fund is hence
forth absolutely cut out and separated from
the cash balance in the treasury and the
available cash balance will hereafter show a
reduction of $150,000,000 from the figures that
have heretofore prevailed. This 8150,000,000
re It mption fund is to be used for no other
purpose than the redemption of the United
States notes apd treasury notes and these
notes so redeemed may be exchanged for gold
in the genera] fund or with the public so that
the reserve fund is kept full with gold to the
The secretary is £.iven further power. If
redemptions go on so that gjld in this reserve
fund is reduced below §100,000,000 and he is
unable to build it up to the §150,000,000 mark
by exchange for gold in the general fund or
otherwise, he is given power to sell bonds, and
it is made his duty to replenish the gold to
the $150,000,000 mark by such means.
The "endless chain" is broken by a provis
ion which prohibits the use of note-! bo re
deemed to meet deficiencies in the current
revenues. The act provides for the ultimate
retirement of all the treasury notes issued in
payment for silver bullion under the Sherman
act. As fast as that bullion is coined into
silver dollars treasury notes are to be retired
and replaced with an equal amount of silver
The measure authorizes the issue of gold
certificates in exchange for deposits of gold
coin, the same as at present, but suspends
thiit authority whenever and so long as the
gold in the redemption funds is beiow Sl'JO.
--000,000 atul gives to the secretary the option
to Buspend the isaue of such certificates whi n
ever the silver certificates and United States
notes in the general fund of th-j treasury ex
The bill provides for a larger issue of silver
certificates by declaring that hereafter silver
certificates shall be issued only in denomina
tions of §10 and under except as to 10 per
cent of the total volume. Room is m.me for
this larger use of silver certificates in the way
of hina.il bills by another provision which
makes it necessary as fast as the prestnt silver
certificates of high denominations are broken
up into sm ill bids to cancel a similar volume
of United States notes of small denominations
and replace them with notes of denominations
of £10 and upward. Further room is made
for the circulation of small silver certificates
by a clause which permits national banks to
have only one-third of their capital in de
nominations under $10. One clause which
the public will greatly appreciate is the right
that it gives to the secretary to coin :»ny of the
18' JO bullion into subsidiary silver coins up to
a limit of $100,000,000. There has for several
years been a scarcity of subsidiary silver in
the periods of active retail trade, but this pro
vision will give the treasury ample opportun
ity to supply all the subsidiary silver that is

greatly appreciate i^ the authority ",'iven to

appropriation for paying thy difference be
■ the face value of such coin and the
am ;;nt the sarw will produce in the new
A distinct feature of the bill is in reference
to funding the three per cent Spanish war
loan, the two per cent bonds, maturing in
1907, and the live per cent bonds maturing in
1904, a total of 8839,000,000, into new two
per cent bonds. These new two per cent
bonds will not be offered for sale, but will
only be issued in exchange for an equal
amount, fuce value,of old bonds. The holders
of old bonds will receive a premium in cases
to coin] ensate them in a measure for the Bac
• of interest which they make. The
cash premium will be computed on a basis of
the present worth of the old bonds at two an i
one-quarter per cent, and will be, on April 1,
the date that the new two per cent bonds will
bear, $105.6851 for the 3s; 5111.6765 tor the
Is, and si 10.07:"> for each tflOO of the ss. This
exchange wiii Bave the government, after de
ducting the premium paid, nearly §2:5,000,000
if all the holders of the old bonds exchange
them for the new ones.
National banks that make out circulation
based on the new bonds are to be taxed only
J of 1 per cent on the average amount of cir
eolation outstanding, while those who have
circulation based on deposit of old bunds will
be taxed as at present, 1 per cent.
Tiu:r._> are some other changes in the national
banking act. '1 he law permits national banks
with $25,000 capital to be organized in places
of 3000 inhabitants or more, whereas hereto
fore the capital has been *.~>o,ooo. It also per
mits banks to iss-ue circulation of all classes
of bonds deposited up to lha par valus of tho

heretofore. This ought to make an immediate

National banks are permitted under the law
to i.-sne circulation Dp to an amount equal to

therefore, a possibility of an increase in cir

of improper motives on the part of those ap
