he promised bis wife, who bad gone early to

In the evening. He rmnemliered, however,
that he had also promised her that he would
put down a chamber carpet for her at the
Orst opportunity, and It occurred to him that
no better time could offer, as be was alone at

for a long time, for ha wUhed to save tbe

aud the schooner, almost disabled, and with
three or four of her crew already washed
Into the wean, was flying the sigual for help.
Capt. Hughes of the steamship saw the
fearful peril which a rescuing party must en
counter, but bis call for a volunteer was
promptly answered by the mate and a crew
uf brave men, and preparations were made
f'V tbe desperate trip. To the astonishment
of all, while the boat was being lowered, tbe
flag of distress on me schooner s nutst was
Perplexed at this movement, the hardy
rescuers hesitated; but it was finally derUed
that the boat should go. With great difficul
ty tbe schooner was reached, and on her deck
were found twelve men utterly without hope
einept from ouUi.ie aid. It was necessary to
make two trips, and tb bold sailors of the
Lord Uough took half tbe suffering men and
tolled through the wild waters to their own
ship, and returned as soon as possible for tbe
When all were safe on the steamer Capt
Hughes asked the at-hooner's master, Capt.
Oeorge W. Pendleton, why be bad lowered

"We saw that you were preparing to make
an effort to save us, but we saw, also, that it
was sea in which it was very doubtful
whether a boat would live. I said then to
my men: 'Shall we let those brave fellows
risk their lives to save oursf and they an

platter. I'ponoueof these servers is a num
ber of runs, and upon the other a sugar bowl,
a box of tea, a pile of fragrant mentbe
leaves, a copwr apparatus for heating wa

water to boding with a little fuel, and tbeu
pour the boiling water into his tea urn,
quickly adding to It some tea and some sugar,
and allows the compound to steep a few mo

and tastes it, smacks bis lips, sniffs the odor
of tbe liquid, and draws a deep breath all
with an air which say, "I am going to get
this tea just right."
The chances are that be dues not find tbe

Wahhinotosj City, Pec. 5. Secretary
Windom in his report to congress devotes a
goodly space to the tmiortant question of
diver coinage. He takes ground against tb
continued coinage of the 412.5 grain silver
dollar and declares it a positive hindrance to
any Inb-r national agreement looking to tie
free coinage of gold aud silver at a fixed
ratio. Tlie cause of the depreciation in
value of silver are reviewed, and said depre
ciation Is shown to have Issen steady aud con
tinuous since 1H73 until now the bullion
value of the dollar Is but cents, whereas
In 1H73 it was 1.5 cents more than the gold
dollar. And this notwithstanding tbe pur
cbas of uearly 300,000 standard ounce of
sliver by this country aiuce 1878. The causes
of depreciation stated are the well-known
ones of the demonetisation of silver by Oer
manv and the Issue at Ixw.lon of India coun
Alleged Ifearrlty f Currency.
Mr. Wuidoiii coinlaita the nseet tion that
there Is a scarcity of currency in this country,
and shosrs that there baa been au ex)iansion
of $.'s.0ii0,oii0 since March 1.117s. Tbe asser
tion Is also controverted by the fs-t that
although there are uow over 2Tf,iO,no) In
liver certificate outstanding, there never
ba been a time when there was uot a large
amouut of silver dollar lu tbe treasury un
represented by certificates. lie npmes tbe
coinage of silver up to the limit of H.ouo.tsxi
worth per month, as the present coinage of
Sj,00u,000 worth has fully met the demand,
aad more than done so, but is robust in bis
advocacy ot tbe use by tlu country of both
gold and silver as a circulating medium.
Trapesed Katloas of the Problem.
He Rives In iletaU the solut kms of the ques
tion which have from time to time been pro
posed, and seta them all aside as either im
practicable or of no use. An international
agreement as to ratio be puU among the im
practicable plan. Tbe present policy of
coining I'J.UOO.UU) worth per month, be says,
no one approves now. Tbe Increase of t he
coinage to the full amount ot S4.WiO.OUU
worth per month be believes full of xril, as
likely to give us a silver standard entirely;
and hi this connection be quotes tbe law to
show that the standard in this country is
gold. Tha free coinage plan la objected to
on pretty much ttie same grounds, for he
ays all the silver in the world would b.i
invite. I to come to our mint and be coined
at the rate ot TJ reuta worth of si It r to tlie
dollar. The coinage ot a silver dollar con
taining a dollar's worth ot bullion is put in
tbe Impracticable list, as the value of silver
is too uncertain, and tbe issue of certificates
to depositors ot bullion is cUused with free
The Secretary a Measure.
Mr. Windom then goes ou to give tbe plan
he propiMeaas tbe way out of the difficulty as
follows: "Issue treasury notes against de
posits of silver bullion at the market pries
of silver when deposited, payable on demand
In such quantities ot silver bullion as will
equal in value, at the date of presentation,
tbe number of dollars expressed on the face
of tbe notes at tbe market price ot silver, or
In gold, at the option of tbe government; or
in silver dollars at toe option of the holder.
KejassJ the compulsory feature of the present
Laplanatioa of the IMan.
Tbe report then proceeds: "The proposition
i Isriefly ttue: To open the mints of the
United States to tbe free deposit of sdver,
tlie market value of the same (not to exceed
1 for iVi.S grains of standard silver) at tbe
time of the deposit, to tsj paid in treasury
notes; said notes to be re.leeinal.le in tb
quantity of silver which could la? purchase
by tbe nunilar of dollars expressel ou the
fnce of tlie notes at the time preieiited tor
payment; or in gold, at the option of tbe
governiiicut; and to Is? receivable for cua
loins, taxes, and all public dues; and alien
eo receive.! thev may be teiasueU; and such
notes, when held by any national latnlin
association, shall be counted as part of iu
A Chohe-OO for "Combines."
"The secretary of the treasury shall have
discretionary power to suspend, temporarily,
tbe receipt of silver bullion for payment in
note, w hen necoaaary to protect the gov
ernment against combination formed for
tbe jiurjKjse of giving an arbitrary and ficti
tious price to silver. If the price of sdver
sh nild advauce between the date of the issue
of a uote aud it payment, the holder of the
note would receive a less quantity of silver
than he deisxuted, but the exact quantity
which could be bought in the market witb
the numtwr of guLl dollar called for by bis
note, at tbe date of payment IX the price
should decline, be would receive more silver
than be deposited, but tbe quantity which
oould be purchased with the number of gold
dollar called for by bis note at the time pre
sented for payment
Oatloa to Redeem la Cold.
"The advantages of retaining tbe option to
redeem in gold are three-fold: First It
would give additional credit to tbe notes,
becoud It would preveut the withdrawal
and redejioslt of lilver tor speculative pur
pose. Third It would afford a convenient
method of making change wben the weight
of silver bars does not correspond with tb
amount of the notes. So tar as tlie issue ol
tbe note is concerned, tbe plan Is very lim
pla. If a depositor brings luu ounce of di
ver to the mint, and the market price of
eUvsr at that date, a determined by tbe
secretary of tu treasury, la H" cents an
ouane, tte would rsarsatve In payment traamaurv
notes calling for Itt.
Tea Reasons fur Adoption.
"Among tb obvious advantages of tb
measure proposed, the folio tug may be
First It would establish aud maintain
thxoua-b tb oeratt.aa of trade a convenient
and auonunilial use of all the money metal ui
becund It would give ns a paiier currency
not subject tu undue ur arbitrary lunation or
contraction, nor to BuoAuatlog values, but
based, dollar for dollar, uu bullion at Its mar
ket trice and having behind It the pledge of
the a-overniueat to maintain its alue at par.
It would be as good as good, and would remain
lu circulation, as tbere oould be no motive fur
demanding redemption for the purposes of
ordinary business transactions.
Thlrd-hy the utilization uf silver iu this
way a market would be provided fur the sur
plus product. This would tend to the rapid
enhancement uf its value, until a point be
reached where we can with safety uiB our
mints to the free coinage uf silver.
Fourtb-The volume uf alstolutely souml and
partem ly convenient currency thus lutroilu. ed
Into the channels of trad would also relieve
(old of s part of tbe work which it would
otherwise be required to perform.
Fifth It would meet the want uf those who
desire a larger volume uf circulation, by the
lntruductiuu of a ourreucy which, belug at all
times the equivalent of gold, would freely cir
culate with It. and thus avoid tbe danger of
contrast Ion, which lurks In tbe pulley uf In
creased or free coinage uf silver, by reason of
tbe boarding or asportation of gold.
Sixth It should not enoounter the oppusl
of those who deprecate Inflation: for, though
th volume of currency may be sxvnewhat in
creased, tb notes would be limited to tbe sur
plus product of (liver, and each dollar thus
Issued would be absolutely sound, and would
represent an amount of bullion worth a dollar
seventh It would be far more advantageoo
tu silver producers than Increased coinage un
der existing law, fur In both rases bullion
would be paid for at Its market value, and un
der the plan proposed a much larger amount
could be need with safety.
Eighth There would be nu possibility of loss
to the holders of these notes, because in addi
tion to their full face value in bullion they
would have behind them tbe pledged faith of
the government tu redeem tu.m in gold, or lu
equivalent in silver bullion.
Mntb-Tbe adoption of this policy, and the
repeal of th compulsory ooiuage act. would
quiet apprehension In regard to the overissue uf
standard silver dollars, aud the present stock
could therefor be safely maintained at par.
Tenth This plan could be tried with per
fect safety, and. it la believed, witb advantage
to all our Interests. Mbould it prove a success
ful and satisfactory plan for utilizing sliver as
money, other nations might find it to their in
terest to adopt it, without waiting for an in
ternational agreement, aud should concerted
notion be deemed desirable. It could then be
more readily secured.
"By this method it I believed that tbe way
would be paved for tbe opening of tbe mint
of tb world to the free coinage of silver, and
tbe restoration of the former equilibrium of
the money nietak."
The secretary concludes by replying to
possible objections to tbe proposition out
lined above. .

FARMERS AND KNIGHTS TO COMBINE
A Confereaee In ProKress That Will Make
a Big Corner In the Labor Market IT
Successful A Political Vnlon Involved
In the Scheme Call for a Meeting ol
Coal Miner Labor Notes.
Rt. Loci, Dec. 5. The Farmers' and
Laliorers' alliance accomplished very little
yesterday, owing to the non-arrival until
last night of Mr. Powderly, who was ex
pected to speak on the subject ot consolida
tion. The meeting yesterday morning was
called to order at 8:30 o'clock by President
Evan Jones, after which ex-President C. W.
McCune, of the Farmers' and laborers'
nuion of Washington, editor of The National
Economist, delivered bis annual address, tie
explained the idea of organization and itc
pros)sjcts; described tlie manner iu which
tlie consoli.lnUon of the different associations
was brought about, and submitted a number
of suggestions regarding the gathering of
crop reports, etc.
ViessofT. V. Powderly.
Mr. l'owdorly said last niKht: "We are
here to see just how far apart we stand on
tbe qtiesti.itis at issue. Our cause is a com
mon one. and in the near future 1 think
tbere will be a conjunction of all the uiter
fsts that labor in its entirety represents. In
view of the fact that legislative lslies hav
made unjust discrimination against the
farmers by special acts of legislation in
favor of orratic.ns. we d.s?ni it necessary
to take steps to assist each other. We are
both working for the same ends, and this
conferen.sj Is for the purjiose of establishing
confidence in each other. We sliall agree
that when the farmer put a candidate in the
field for either a legislative, scuabu-ial, or
president ml rsilion we will support tliat
randiibtte. Slid they will do the name for us.
If we do not agree on any candidate, then
each organization will assist its own candi
date. It may he possible that at some future
peri.sl we shall consolidate, but at present
we v. ill not try to do anything of the kiud."
Magnitude of the Move.
Representatives from three bin unions are
now in the city, and all are seeking an alli
auee of interests. These include the Farm
ers' and l.alorers' Cnioti of America, which
includes the farmers and laborers of the
south and southwest. Next comes the Farm
ers' Mutual Benefit Association of the North
west, which includes the majority of the
farmers in tbe northwestern states, and last
the Knights of Labor. The officers of the
Farmers' Mutual Benefit association
reached the city yesterday, and
headed by President H. F. Moore
and General Secretary John P. Steele,
both of Illinois, attended the convention at
the exposition building. This organization
bas a membership of over b5,0ij, and the of
ficials say they are ready to cast their for
tunes with oue great national union, and
think it will not only be of vast benefit to
those connected, but that it will wield an in
fluence iu future legislation that will be far
reaching in iu effect While the Farmers'
and La! Hirers' union offer no objection to the
Mutual Benefit association, there is some op
position to an amalgamation with the
Knights of Labor.
