Morton has written a letter to James
A. Cherry, of Denver, Col., in reply to
i letter from that gentleman criticUinfr
tome statements in the interview with
the secretary of agriculture, printed a
iouple of weeks ago, which caused so
aiuch comment. It is as follows:
From your letter of April 2J, 1SU5. it appears
;hat you and I perfectly agree on the funda
mental point, namely, that demand and sup
ply inexorably reculate all values whatsoever,
it all times and in all places. At what points

then ko on to conclusions so utterly diverse?
These points are only two the lirst historical

Jut quite the reverse of true. You say. for in
stance: 'Until 1873 the chief use of silver was
for coinage. It had other uses, but the demand
for it for coinage purposes was steady and
On this point you have been monstrously
misinformed. The lirst federal coins of silver
were minted in lTs4, and of gold in I5VS. Their
ratio, as recommended by Alexander Hamil
ton, and fixed by an act of congress, was 15.1.
It was hoped thus to keep the two metals in
equilibrium in coinage, liut they would not
come in equilibrium at thai rate; still less
would they stay there.
"Only 31:! dollar pieces were coined at the
American mint in the entire year of 1805. be
cause tho silver was worth more out of the
coinage than in it and worth more for export
than for domestic money. What was the mat
ter with those silver dollars? Nothing, only
they were too valuable. May 1. isoti, there
came an order from President Jefferson to the
director of the mint at Phiiadciphia, "that all
the silver to be coined at mints shall be of
small denominations, so thut the value of the
largest pieces shall not exceed half a dollar.'
"The reason given by the presidtnt for this
order 'was 'that considerable purchases have
been made of dollars coined at the mint for the
purpose of exporting them and that it is prob
able that further purchases and exportation
will be made.'
"The coinage of silver dollars, thus au
thoritatively suspended at the American mint,
was not resumed there for thirty years. In
these few facts, which are official and unques
tionable, behold the beauties and advantages
of a double standard; of the unlimited coinage
of both uietuls in an equal and constant ratio
with each other; of two yardsticks of difTcreut
lengths to measure cloth by in the same mar
ket. Hy the law of 134 the ratio was sub
stantially put at 1 to 16. Hut this was going
too far in the opposite direction. (Jolil was
not worth 16 in silver in the markets of
Europe. Consequently the international
current of the metals was for a time re
versed, silver passing in preference abroad

coming in small quantities to the United
stales, where it was more than 3 per cent,
dearer in silver than in urope. lly ISM the
immense disadvantages of a double standard'
iad become so plain to all thinking people that
congress wisely determined to abandon the ut
terly futile attempts to secure the 'parity' of
the two metals, and to make gold the legal
tender for debts, except for sums of live dol

so-called, of the date 1K73 as the time 'demone

silvertdollar is not mentioned at all. one way,
or the other, in the act of 1873. All the de
monetization of silver, as I understand it. that
ever came about in this country, happened in
the law of 1SS3, after open and full discussion,
and practically with unanimity, when congress
introduced the subsidiary silver coinage, of
which a nominal dollar's worth weighed 6.11
per cent, less than the silver dollar; and also

"Let us look candidly at . the instances of

Mr. Dickinson had just returned from

The Victor In the Late War Knew the
Nature of the Nations She Had to Deal
With, and Distrusted Them All Terrt.
Sax Fbaxcisco, May 13. The
steamer City of Pekin arrived yester
day morning from the orient bringing
Yokohama dates to April 20. The
United Press correspondent says:
"Japan is criticised because she did
not 'square' beforehand. She must
have known, it is alleged that her ex
pansion would clash with Russian in
terests; that if the great bear's paw
was not to be extended, he must have
a morsel to keep him quiet. Certainly
Japan did know that. She knew
that Germany's friendship was of
too selfish a character to stand
any strain. Germany has never
done anything for Japan without le
ing paid. The history of her relations
with the new oriental power has been
a series of hard bargains. It was al
ways plain to be seen that if stronger
inducements were offered she would
at any moment abandon an amicable
attitude. As for France, her role in
the orient has been invariably dicta
torial rather than conciliatory. The
position she now takes is perfectly
consistent with her precedent. Yet
Japan did not attempt to placate these
powers by previous arrangements.
She learned the uselcssness of such at
tempts. To satisfy one power is to
give umbrage to another.
"For a time it was industriously
rumored that a secret understand
ing existed between her and Russia.
Thereupon llritish suspicions were
aroused and the English press clam
ored. "The area of territories ceded by
China to Japan, namely: Liao Tung
peninsula, Formosa and Pescadores, is
o";,,.i"i". square miles, of which 10,100
square miles represent Liao Tung
peninsula. Speaking approximately,
Japan increases her dominion by 25
per ceut., and her whole area becomes
greater than that of the United
Kingdom, Great Itritain, Scotland
and Ireland, and nearly equal
to the combined area of
France and Spain. With regard to
population, no accurate statistics are
yet available, but it mat be assumed
that Formosa has a population of 3,-
000,000, Pescadores a population of C,
000 and Liao Tung peninsula a popula
tion of 4,500,000. Thus the total popu
lation of the Japanese empire becomes
4S,000,(00, which is greater than the
population of France and Germany.

are over 2,000,000 yen, and those at

unsteadies the steering.
Riders should never discontinue

should immediately adopt some other

To leave an insulTieient length of

less disastrous to the machine, is more
dangerous to the rider, for the handle
