Tlie Silver Quest inn.
Of nil questions that ure now be
ing agitated, the most Important
is the suspension of tho coinage of
the standard silver dellar. Till ; ls
a question upon v, liich the greal
mass of tile people ure ill informed
and they are content t<> allow thc
agitai iou to re:na i 11 within thc halls
of Congress. Public sentiment
seems to be equally divided. There
are those who believe that thc con
tinued coinage of silver will bring
untold disaster upon tho country;
they contend that gold alone should
be thc standard. On the other
hand, there are thoso who cling to
the dollar of their forefathers; who
believe that the currency thal has
been used from the beginning of
our Government, and has brought us
thus far In safety, should remain.
Upon the proper solution of this
question by tho Forty-Ninth Con
gress, depends In a greal mensuro

By the report of the Director of

We believe in the frei' COMinge of
silver. While it is right (hal the
bondholders should bo protected
and all contracts of the government
performed to the letti r, il is unjust
lo legislate SO as to impoverish the
laboring class. Those who toll for
their bread, in the farm and al the
forge, have a greater claim upon
tile government than the few who
control the wealth.
"We need more money, as will be
seen when we compare tho amount
per capita In the United Slates
with that of other countries. On
theist dnyof.Tuly, 1 >s:>, thc United
States had <?1G.6G| per capita, *37.
81) less Cuan France and $8.41 less
than Great Britain. Willi an an
nual increase of one million of pop
ulation and our commerce con
stantly growing, and consequently
tiie demand for money ever increas
ing, it seems to us a serious mis
take to destroy over one-third of the
currency of the country. No one,
we presunfe, will for a mom cul con
tend thal Hiere ls nn inflation of
the currency. Property ls us low
almost ns it ever has boon. Our
cotton is sohl for senrcoly more
than tlie cost of production, while
nil articles of food are cheaper than
they have been for years.
We have millions of debts to be
paid, and if all tho money outside
of the banks bi; taken from us, we
can see only a lamentable state of
affairs ahead. Already, the bur
dens of th?' laboring millions
are grievous; and, while groan
ing under the weight of an
unjust protective tarill', it will
be 0 matter OfsorlOUS consequence
to demonetize silver. President
CLEVELAND and many of our
wisest and most patriotic states*
men bolieve that the coinage of
silver should be stopped. Tiley
contend with equal force that to
demonetize silver would bring
prosperity upon tho country; but
unt'l the great panic that spread
over the country in 1873, just at the
time when silver was demonetized,
can be explained upon .some other
hypothesis] we are unwilling to
risk having the Interest of tho
Country again paralyzed. It seems
to us n significant fact, that when
the silver dollar was again res
tored to its pine? of confidence, al
most liiimedia ly all branches of
industry received a fresh impetus.

So far as our opinion of civil ser

Wo believe that a public ellice is a
sacred trust, and should only bo

Thc Property ot* a Woman Not
Liable for lier Debts.
An Important Decision.
lt has been an open question with
lawyers, as to whether tho prop
erty ol' ,i married woman would bo
liable for a contrai t in which no
reference is made as to ber inten
tion to bind her separate property,
This question luis been settled by
our Supreme Court. They go far
ther and say that no contract ol a
married woman will bind her sep
arate property, even though she
intends it to have this elli ot nilli
so expresses in tho contract, unless
the contract as made with refer
ence to her separate estate. In
other words, the consideration of
the contract must concern her prop
erty in order lo make i' liable.
We make an extract from an
article in the Augusta Ch'ronicte
from the Laurens Correspondent,
on this subject :
* * * Under thc act ns amend
ed the Supreme Court has just de
cided that a married woman can
not bimi herself hysingningn note
' as suety for her husband, oven
? tho;,gb the note specifies thal it ls
to bind her separate estate. In the
Inst few \ear- th on sn mis of dollars
have changed hands on the nssur
nnco of married women's contracts,
as a great deal of property is owned
in this State by married women,
and in many cases husbands can
not get credit without the endorse
ment of their wives.
The result of the !aw is to inter
fere with trade and commerce.
Mindi property will bc locked up
in the hands of married women,
unaffected by contracts, as proper
ty w'ns once hound up in England
in religious corporations mid mon
asteries. 11 may he doubled wheth
er she cnn execute II valid mort
gage oil her estate to secure the
debt of lier husband, as the debt,
thc consideration of the mortgage,
in no Wav nffcots or concerns her
Another result of this legislation
ls giving tin rights of citizens con
cerning property to certain persons
without subjecting them tc tito II
abilities of citizens. A married
woman can make and break as
many contracts as she jileases, can
commit as many torts as she
piensos with perfect Impunity,
while a single woman would he
liable in tho same manner ns a man.
lt i- putting a married woman
above the privilege of a minor, who
is liable for necessaries, but it is
doubtful whether she would be lia
ble for such unless they related to
her separate estate.
A not her result of ibo law is, it
will lead to unpleasant litigation
in domestic affairs. A married
woman when brought into Court
will IlllVO to disclose the secrets of
the family, ami there w ill be great
temptation to her to exceed the
truth ill trying to prove that a
certain contract of hers does not
benefit or concern her separate es
This state of things cannot long
last. A change must come. Too
nundi property lies concealed by
fraud from the light of day, timi
sheltered by the petticoats from
the stern process or the law.
Property ought not to exist in
South Carolina free from Hie op?r
?t ion and effects t?f ordinary con
tracts, It is hoped that the Legis
lature, at the next session will
amend tho Act SO that it w ill stand
us it did ender the Act of IH70.
The Legislature might give the
amendment a retroactivo effect, so
that all contracts made since 1082
would bo valid. This looks 'ibo
impairing the obligation of con
tracts, hut this the Legislature cnn
(lo, provided it does not divest
vested rights. To pass such n
law Would bo more like saving
vested rights than divesting- thom.
Bloch property has ohangod h Ands
on the strength of married women's
contracts, find they Intended to
bind themselves by those contracts
In morality they aro hound. It
would simply make them respon
sible for what they thought they
were becoming hound, and for
what they,In good faith and morals,
woro bound to make good.
11 is again rumored that the
'resilient is to he married this
"It cured myself, wile and obild."
