AN AMUSING FEATURE of the Return
ing Board prosecutions in Louisiana
is the appeal made by Madison
Wells to Associate Justico Joe
Bradley to have his case removed
to the United States Courts. Still
more amusing is the refusal of
Bradley to make any interference
whatever with the State courts.
When it is remembered that Wells
and Joe Bradley made Hayes presi
dent the remark about rogues falling
out and honest men getting their
dues will appear to be receiving

AND NOW THEY HAVE found Charlie
Ross again. This time he is a waif
that was picked up in Demerara,
and sent to Baltimore by a merchant
who detected a resemblance to the
lost child. The little vagrant was
brought to Demerara by a mulatto
woman and abandoned. Mr. Ross
did not recognize the child, but it is
said that recently the matron of the
charitable institution to which ho
was sent has discovered that as the
dirt and tan disappeared from the
child's hands and feet,. the resem
blance is becoming very striking.
The inevitable strawberry mark on
the left arm is not wanting to comn
pleto the description. Mr. Ross is
to take another look at the boy as
loon as he is perfectly clean, we
presume. Let us hope that the
boy has been found.
THE GOLD MEN are getting into a
state of ecitemrent, apparently over
the faet that merchants in the East
are shipping trade dollars from
Oalifornia, and disbursing them at a
gain of three cents on the dollar.

ket to any great extent, for there
and the.demand for them will en
hanco their value. The California
Shylocks are much greener than
we tako them to be, if they allow
the Eastern mon to bag the profits.
With any demand for them, the
trado dollars will not remain long at
ninety-soven cents. The only ar
gument of any weight against
remonetization is the groat incon
venienco arising from handling large
amounts of this coin. If the ro
monetizatiou of silver will chase all
the gold from the country, vhy is
it that France, which alone of all the
gr&at natioDs maintains a double
standard, has a perfect glut of gold,
over five hundred millions of dollars
lying unused in the vunults of the
Bank of France alone'?
