Thurstay. June 27. . : 15
CARLISLE'S speeches seem to have
bee'in effective in Kentucky. The
people of that State know him best,
and he still has an influence with them.
Mos- people will not concur with
Judge Simonton in practically holding
that because a man formerly r-a a
bar-room the presumption ii that he
(toes not order liquor for private use
T11h Im III who deliberately wrecks a
train si -uld be severely pinished.
We know not how th'guilt of him,
who deliberately place< obstructions
on a railroad and causes the death of
people in the faithful disebarge of their
duties, differs from him, who conceals
himself behind ambush and murders
the innocent. In the law, he is guilty
of murder for he is presumed to have
intended the consequences of his act.
Coxxox decency and respect for the
religious sentiment of this State should
have kept out of Senator Tillnau's
mouth, That he "would not vote for
Christ" on a gold standard. Ile may
talk as much as he please; about being
a plain, blunt man, but there is no
excuse for such expressions. Whether
he has any religion or not, be should
show some deference to the religious
sentiment of the peopl~e w hom he repre
sents in the United States Senate.
THE State Board of Control deserved
a rebuke for changing the hours of
opening and closing the dispensaries.
The Dispensary system is a pretense
to encouras~e temperance. Its .friends
have claimed for it that it w..uld di
minish drunksenness, and it, ;therefore,
seems that the State Board should not
encourage people to drink by keeping
the bar-room open longer. It is amus
ing, however, to note how the ad vocates
of the dispensary try to advance argu
ments to please everybody. To the
temperance people, they say that the
early closing and the selling in large
quantities diminishies drinking, and to
the drinking people, they say y ou can
get chemically pure whiskey and the
tempting cock-tail already prepared,
cool beer on ice, and ini cities beer
will be delivered at your door. In five
years, if the dispetz:ary is still here,
we shall expect it to beai nahing more
than the old time bar. It is nearly
THE MONEY QUESTION.
Mr-. Editor: Please allow me space
in your columns for the publication of
an article on the' financial condition of
the country and the principal cause to
which it may be attributed. In writ
ing this article, I fear that it will not
interest your many readers now amid
the turmoil, strife, envy and discord
that stalks unchecked throughout our
State. But our present financial de
pression as some think is not attribu
table to State legislation. Let us take
a glance at statistics, and I think we
will be able to understand more fully
to what tbe scarcity of money and the
present low prices of farm products
may be appropriately attributed. Our
monetary troubies may be traced to
the complete demonet.izstion of silver
by the repeal of the purchasing claLse
of the Sherman law. It is very evi
dent to any intelligent voter that when
you have two articles of any kind and
de-troy the intrinsic value of one you
thereby increase to one hundred per
cent the demand for the other. And
so it is with gold and silver; after bav
ing relegated -silver to the rear, we
have increasedt manifold the demand
for gold, thereby increasing its pur
chasing power, which tends to lower
the prices of farm products.
We have sat quietly and let other
natitons dictate our ;i nancial policy,
and when there have sat any time been
a measure before Congress for tht relief
ot the poor down-trodden and op
pressed workmen of this country who
havre so long borne these unjust iniqui
ties, we hear- the great hue and cry
fronm some of our leading representa
tive men, "what will England say or
d. if we adopt this or that measure of
relief for the alleviation of our unfot
tunate fellowmen ?"
America needs more faith in itself
on this money question. If the United
States will only have the coaurage of its
own strength its silver money cwtat
be- depreciated nor ita siker mines
closed, even at the dictati .n of comn
bined Europe; and as yet Europe is
far from being combined on this issue.
Sh ol awa.ts a lader to throw off
this English ioke. France is inter
ested in silver' restoration to fill
standard money rank as well as A mer
ica. Oar national law-makers and
4o-called statesmen seem to have lo-t
siht of the fact that this country has
the natural bace for the greatest con
tinuous empire ever established by
man. Notwitlistainding these st upen
dous and overwhelming facts in our
beha:f, we allow EaIland to bluff us
into the belief th'tt we mu-t take tne
law c-)ncerting eni stadard munev
from their lit tle republic w hich has but
40,000,000 people, and has not got a
single gold or silver min- in all its
length and breaIth, while the United
States produces more gold and silver
than all the rest of the world put
The vaine of land of th's country
exceeds that of England by S1,000,
000,000, while the number of miles of
railroad in thi; country exceeds those
of England by 125,000. I mention
this to show what great strides of
progress we have made in this country
over and above England, which en
titles us to the leadership among the
nations of the earth. But it must be
borne in mind that the greater part of
this interval of unexampled pros
perity in this yet undeveloped coun
try took place previous to 1873, which
demonstrates very clearly that in order
to retain our present advanced position
among o:her nations, it is very essen
tial that we iacrease,- our supply of
money in proportion to th legitimate
demands of a rapidly inc:easing popu
Wall this country in and her people
can live in full comfort, yes, in luxury
if never a European ship touches its
shores. On the other hand, if you
were to shut England off frorn im
ports their people would starve to
death. America teeds the world, and
England is fed by the world.
This is but additional evidence which
justifies us in assuming the role of
leadership regardless of what some ot
our leading men may say to the con
trary. I repeat again that an increase
of the velame of money is one of the
most (ssential elements of permanent
improvement anong all classes, and it
is in the halls of national legislation
thi:at the great contest for the relief of
the bonest Neomanry of this country
is to be conducted. And in the lan
gi :ge of a well known statesman, if
it is wisely, persistently and courage
ously demanded by the great mass of
people who have so long borne these
unjust iniquities, they will eventually
win some measure of legislation
that wilf again put them in the path
that leads to the higri road of pros
parity; in that event they will have
accomplished something well worthy
Mr. Editor, let us take Secretary
Carlisle's report of 1894, and from that
ascertain the amount of money now
on hand and we can comprehend more
fully the deplorable condition that
confronts the American people, horri
ble to behold. Never did any of the
founders of civil government dream
that there would ever come a time in
the aistory of this republic that an
intelligent, highly cultivated and en
lightened people would make an effort
to transact a voluminous and rapidly
increasing business with a diminished
amount of money.
Secretary Carlisle said in August,
tbat the total stock of money of all
kinds in and out of the treasury was
$2,240,146,271. Of that amount there
was supposed to have been held by
national, State and savings banks
$418.000, 000, which is not in circula
tion and we have left in circulation
only $1,077,800,898. This does not
make allowance for the comtinual de
struction of silver money, the expor
tation of gold, and the millions locked
up in State, town and county treasu
ries. Taking the secretarie's report
as a correct statement, it is a fair esti
mate that 'there is not more than $900,
000,000 in actual circulation. This
amount divided by the total population
of the United States would give us a
circulating medium of $13.25 per
capita-the smallest amount of money
on which any country with our p->pu
lation aird trade ever attempted to do
business. And as 1 have said there
are more people every day and a
smaller amount of money to transact
the business of the country. All the
leading ecotnomists agree thul t) re
duce the amount of legal tender money
in circulation, will reduce the vale and
price of all articles. In 1873 we began
to reduce the amount of money in
circulation. The reduction has gone
steadily ever' since with the exception
of a few yeers when it was checked
by the Bland and Sherman silver acts.
The record ot market prices shows
that all farm products have gone down
in ptoportion to the diminished amiottnt
of money with which to buy. Statis
tics show hat an acre of wheat sold
for- a little over 913 in 1873. Now
after twenty-onie years of dliminished
circalation an acre of wheat wvii sejl
for less than Sf. The averag~e acre
value of all stapile crops of our farmere
sold for five per cent higher prices in
1873 than they are a. Ii ig for in 1894.
It has been said, and J presuime that it
is correct. that if the wheat crop, the
corn crop, and the cotton crop of 1894
could be sold at the same prices they
brought in 1873, before the terrible
contraction of the currenicy began,
the farmers and planters of the United
States wou'd have at leat $800,u00,000
more in their pockets than they- will
have at the present prices.
Let me say just here, that if the
farmers of the South and West could
have realized the prices that they re
ceived in 1873 for-their farm products
from then until die present time, they
wou!d to-day be the most wealthy
people in the world; aiiti there would
hive been nio hordinz up of millions
by private individtuals, trust, syndi
cates anid monopolie s, and thereby
taking from the pinr workmnen Lof this
ecuntry their just eamrn'ns. It has
ieen said by sonme that it. will bring
into requisitioni the mnost far acaching
sagacity of Americ in statesm:ttship

How Dr. Miles' Nervine Brought One
of Kentucky's Foremost Busi=
-ness Men Back to Health..
O DISEASE has ever presented so many peculiarities, developed sO
many aggravating symptoms and bafled so many physicians at
LaGrippe. No disease leaves its victims so debilitated, useless,
sleepless, nerveless, as LaGrippe. It is a disease of the nerves, it
ses up the tissue, the vitality, the life-giving ner'.e force that feeds the brain.
There is one remedy that will replace this worn-out tissue; that wvill re
new this lost vitality and restore health. R~ead what Mr. D. W. Hilton, state
gent of thle Mutual Life Insurance Co., of Kentucky, one of the best known
insurance men in the south, and whose portrait appears above, says about how
Dr. Miles' Nervine Restored him to health when all else had failed.
"In 1383 and '90 I had two severe attacks of LaGrippe, about eight
months intcrvening between them, the last cne conflning me to my bed for
four months and at tacking my nervous sy.stem, wiitb. r~nch severity that my
ife was despai red of. I had not slept for more E-m tw.o months except by
he -se of narcotics that stupefied mue. but gav'e me mr.: et. For more than
ight long weeks I was only conscious of in~tense menl wekes :gomlzmng
bodily pain and the fact that I was houriy grrov:ing~ wc.akr.
When in this condition, it seemed like a providentUal circumstance that I
earned of D~r. Miles' Restorative Nervine, for int two <iay:s after I commenc:ced
2sing. it, I began to improve and in one mor~ 's tim ' I was virtually cured,
and very much to the surprise of everybody who) kner; of my condition; for
one of themn believed I would ever recover. I hr;vc ibeen in excellent health
since and haive recommended your remedies to many or my friends, not one
f whom hts failed to tharmk me for doing so, when I have met them again.
Iha the best remains to be told. Mrs. Hilton had suffered with severe
ervous t rm);bNs for thirteen years and had been treated by several physi
cans, who .stand high in their profession, without any perceptible improve
ment. Seeing how the Nervine had so effectually cured me, she commenced
sing it ar~d iz now in excellent health. We never fail to recommend it."
