The Pentacostal nvectlng'still continues
with powerful sermons, sweet nusic ami
ntnuy conversions and snnctilications.
On Wednesday night Rev. ;j. H. Smith
preached the grandest serrmou of the
aeries* from the te>t, Psalms 51-7:
?'Purge me with hysop and I shall be
clean. Wash me and I shall be whiter
than suow. 1 He also preached again
yesterday morning from the text, First
Cor., 14-1: "Follow after charity and de?
sire spiritual gifts, but rather, that ye
may prophesr." In the afternoon Rev.
Perry R. Nugent, of Richmond, preached
n beautiful sermon on "The LGift of the
Holy Ghost." Very large crowds attend
the night meetings, probably'ns many as
1,000 each night. Mr. Smith seems to
grow in popularity,as ho seems to have a
laudable character, with ueyer a word to
hurt tne feelings of the most sensitive,
nor a rough word to rutile the feelings of
the most aesthetic.

While there is but one case of typhoid
fever of -vhicb we have learned in Salem,
that of a child of Mr. and Mrs. Shenkj in
the western portion of the town.it might
be well for people to be careful and look
to the sanitary renditions of their prem?
ises, being careful not to throw slops anil
refuse where it can contaminate the wa?
tet which they drink, especially those
who use well water. It. would also be
?well to lime low, damp place.? around
premises, so as to keep down foul odors,
as bad odors and contaminated water are
prolific causes of fever.

SILVER AND PRICES.
A Dispatch From Senator Daniel on the
Recent Rise In Wheat.
Editor New York Herald:
The high price of wheat is manifestly
duo to the increased \lemnnd of foreign
countries, due to crcp failures there. The
low pi ice of silver bullion is due to the
decreased demand, due to the progressive
dosing of the mints to 'ts coinage. If
there .were still greater failuresol cropsin
other countries wheat Would go bischer.
If the prohibition of silver coinage were
followed by the prohibition of the. use of
silver in the arts the bullion would be?
If gold were denied the right of free
coinage which it now has it would lall,
for the principal demand would cease.
If silver were restored to free coinage it
would instantly go up, as the principal
demand for it as money would revive.
The spasms of trade due to transitory
fluctuations of crops and markets cannot
change the operation of general princi?
ples. The denial of the right of silver
to be freely coined has given that metal
the boycott, and it will stay down as
long as it is boycotted, ami the vast dis?
turbance of the world's money and prop?
erty values, with the Increased burden of
taxes and debt, will long continue unless
silver be restored to its royal right as a
money metal, to be freely coined like
There is no exact equation between
wheat and silver, or between any two
commodities as to their prices, because
transient causes of supply aml'dcniaud
will produce constantly recurring fluctu?
ations. Hut both wheat and silver, and
all other commodities, R ill move on a
low plane of price as long as silver is de?
monetized, unless indeed, there be a vast
output of gold that lifts the plane of
all prices by largely swelling the volume
Hut If this were to take place there
would be a movement to stop gold coin?
age led by the same classes that have
warred on silver. What they want i- dear
dollars and cheap labor and cheap com?
modities, and they will use any device to
get them. On the other hand, the -nasses
need a full and ever increasing volume of
money to keep up prices, to prevent the
increase of tax burden and debt burden,
to stimulate investment Jn property and
enterprise, and to give competition and
employment to labor.
