forco of a conscienceless giant.
"They all know that in the Philip-

Ono of thoso smart, self-appointed
guardinns of our national honor has
been turned down in Michigan. A dis
patch from Pontiac, Michigan, informs
us that Judge Smith has rendered a de
cision in favor of silver jn tho now cele
brated case of of S. B. Baldwin vs. F. A.
According to information sent out
through tho Associated Press, tho cir
cumstances leading -up to tho suit are
thoso: Baldwin owns a farm in Bloom
field, Michigan, valued at-$3,000, and
upon which Baker holds a mortgago for
$340. Tho mortgage was obtained by
assignment from its original holders
December 13, 1897, and there was duo
in interest and principal upon the mort
gago $304. In payment Baldwin ten
dered Bakor $304 silver dollars, which
he refused to accept. Baker at dnco
began steps to forecloso tho mortgago.
Baldwin filed a bill in chancery asking
that tho mortgago ho discharged inas
much as ho had tendered tho payment
to Bakkcr. Bakor filed a lengthy an
swer in icply, covering all thopoints of
tho coinago laws. In it Iiq quoted tho
coinage) law passed by congress Fobruary
12, 1873, providing that tho standard
gold dollar 'should bo tho unit of value."
On this basis, ho argued, ho was not
boing paid tho full valuo of tho mort
gage, as a silvor dollar's market valuo
was but 58 cents. Judgo Smith's de
cision was that tho tender of thp silver
in payment of tho mortgago was good,
and accordingly ordered tho mortgago
discharged as paid. Tho caso will bo
npbenlcd to tho supremo court cf Mich
igan, and from there it is expected that
it will go to tho United States enpromo
