Sir Archibald Allison, in hi a history of Europe, says.' /v " The suspension of specie payments by the Bank of England in 1797 led to the use of an enormous amount of irredeemable paper money. THE RESULT WAS MAGICAL. It terminated in a, blaze of glory and a flood of prosperity which has never bef ore, since the beginning of the world, descended upon any nation. Prosperity, universal and unheard of, pervaded every depart ment of the empire. Agriculture, manufactures and commerce increased in unpar alleled ratio. The landed proprietors were in affluence. Wealth to an unheard of extent was created among the farmers. Our exports, imports and, tonnage more than doubled, and, the condition, of the people was one of extraordinary prosperity. From 1707 to 18 7.9 no financial embarassmentsof any moment were experienced, and in vain Napoleon waited, for the stoppage of England's financial resources. i But the resumption of specie payments of 1819—the change of I financial syste?n from legal tender paper to metal money—was ruinous to all the industries of England. The distress became in sufferable, and, in Manchester GO,OOO men. women and children assembled, demanding blood or bread, and many of tfoe people were killed and many were wounded by British troops.'' Earth's Greatest Liar. February 24, between i and 2 I o'clock in the afternoon, old John Sherman arose in the Senate and ' said: j "There is no poverty in this country, no unwillingness to pay taxes, no reason why taxes should : not be levied.*' —Congressional Ke- I cord, page 2405 This is the man whom the daily J press and republican leaders con- Stantly laud, praise and glorify as ; America's greatest statesman, pa j triot and financier. If the Father of Lies can beat, or ever has beaten I that statement, history has never j made record of the fact. "■There is no poverty in this j country!" ! John Sherman! I The prize is yours. You are the greatest liar ever found in hell or on earth. You shall have the blue ribbon and the gold medal, and if you will ! only die quick, we will contribute t to raise a monument to your memo ry, on which shall be inscribed: "Sacred to the memory of earth's greatest liar." —independent, Lin coln, Neb. The populist national convention will be held at St Louis June 22. Our Republican Pledge. ''The republican party, from both principle and interest, believes in high taxation for the benefit of public officials. It pledges itself to stand firmly against all efforts to reduce the number of offices, or the salaries, fees and emoluments thereof. It insists that officials who have put up the money for campaign purposes, to secure their own election, are entitled to recoup from the taxpayers, and that through their election a moral ob ligation is created which forbids offices to be cutoff or salaries and emoluments to be reduced. We congratulate the people of the state on the defeat of the efforts made in the last legislature of 1895 to cut off salaries, offices, emoluments and fees, and denounce those offorts as the height of outrage and injustice: and we approve the large and liber al expenditures for clerks in the leg islature, and point with pride to the numerous items and the grand total of the general appropriation bills." —Daily Oregonian. The supreme court has sustained the decision of the superior court of Pierce county, declaring that county school superintendents are not en titled to a $3 fee for visiting schools. Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is ab solute master of industry ami commerce.—Jas. A. Garfield. PERTINENT QUESTIONS, Some Things to Ponder Over aiui Bead to Your Neighbor? 1. If there was too much money in circulation, why did they charter national banks to circulate paper money while the surplus paper money was in circulation? 2.
