Appearances are that the Govern
ment is acting upon the plan sug
gested by us in the matter of the
currency. That is, to not hastily
ship off the national silver currency
upon the strength of mere guess
work. If- it could ho legally
done, which we fear is not the case,
it would probably be better in the
long run to have all the present sil
4vcr coinage at once turned into gold.
Then for change, have one and five
dollar notes, redeemable in gold,
and halves, quarters, dimes and
half dimes in honest silver. We
have no hesitation in predicting that
the gold standard will never be satis
factorily established here until all
tljo subordinate currency is upon
the basis of gold equivalent. If
such were the case at this juncture,
the only shyness of silver that would
be prevalent would be on account
of its bulkiucss. Even if silver is
only to be retained for change,
tliero must be lots of it, and with a
debased silver currency that means
too much of it. People talk as if mo
ney circulated throughout the whole
body of the country's business as free
ly and regularly as blood through
the human body. That is not so.
'Any kind of money is liable to eon
.gestion at a llmiiMiml different
points, and uuloi there arc means
for transmuting u congestion of
silver into gold, uhilo there is barely
enough silver foi-jJic whole country's
change, there must be a deficiency
of the article somewhere else to cor
respond with the co"ugc9tion.
Serious injustice U, we think,
liable to be done in the present posi
tion of the case, which may or may
not bo prevented without having to
wait for legislation. For instance,
a man owes a debt of luelvu dollars,
lie has enough silver money to pay
many such debts, but the highest
denomination in his possession is a
ton dollar certificate, which is not rc
','dcemablc in gold. There is no
authorized place where he can go
and exchange his silver, so he can
not pay the debt as he honestly
desires to do. If our silver currency
was an hincst one, there would be
-no more hesitation at the bank in
giving a man llvo dollars in gold for
live in silver, thau there would be in
a grocery to give him live dollars'
worth of 'tea for that amount of
Tho secret of thu whole dilllculty
is that wo have a silver coinago
current, bearing the imago and
superscription of the sovereign,
which is repudiated at the national
treasury because it is not worth as
much as it is nuttked to bo on the
' faco of it. 'To mako that coinage
scarce would only bo to add to its
.fictitious value and increase public
Slnnoiivonienco. Wo could sunnort a
sV'inovcmcnt to send it all out of the
Ul'..nii(iil tfi (linl I1.IIIA fric, r i I 1 1tjAn

', an amendment is made to the law.
Thp Chineso CScncr.il Government
has averted occasion of infinite in-
crnational rouble, by its over-
fruling of the hasty decrees of Pro
vincial Governments. I ho authori
ties of the northern Provinces had
issued a decree ordering tho expul
sion of nil missionaries, but upon
appeal to the higher authorities at
Peking, the decree was rescihded
and missionaries taken under pro
tection of the General Government.
Have the authorities no power but
to " request " people not to offend
the public nostril and endanger Ihc
public health, by placing dead
animals by the water approaches to
the town? If so, they ought to
take steps for procuring the power
to end all such nuisances by severe
(Siieclnl Coii'csnoiHlenco or lliu Ili'i.i.r.riN.)
In my account of tho clothing
stores in these parts 1 omitted, acci
dentally, to mention two of tho lead
ing ones. There is the store of Mr.
Charles J. Fishel, where everything
in the gentlemen's furnishing line is
to be had, and of the very best
quality. This season the proprietor
is vying with Santa Glaus himself
in liberality, as ho is giving away
cosily silver presents to every cus
tomer who buys goods to the value
of two dollars and a half, lie also
.presents purchasers of a dollar's
worth with toys, of which he has an
interminable assortment. Thus his
customers get substantial value for
their money, and their children re
ceive gifts apart from the revenues
of Santa Clausland.
Mr. Mclncrny's shop is the other
one inadvertently omitted. It is
situated on the corner of Fort and
Merchant streets. The proprietor
believes thoroughly in keeping noth
ing but the best goods the market
affords. His gentlemen's furnish
ing goods, therefore, comprise no
shoddy made to sell, but articles
that will wear until the purchaser
forgets what he paid for them. They
are nevertheless sold at the lowest
living prices. If anyone wants a
good hat to replace that shocking
bad one at the opening of Snnta
Clausland festivities, lie goes, if he
knows what's what here, to this
shop, and so with regard to other
articles of apparel. Although the
proprietor docs not make a fuss
about holiday trade, yet there is a
bewildering variety of articles in his
shop which would make handsome
Christmas presents. Among these
arc guaranteed Waltham watches,
jewelry, toilet articles, and a full line
of perfumery. In a loft in rear of his
shop, one day his son showed me
tho biggest lot of trunks and valises,
saddlery and harness, that I have
ever seen hero. Of the better grade
of these trunks, one would last a
world-explorer a lifetime. I think
the expansion leather valise is what
Santa Claus carries his things
round in, for their capacity is pro
digious. An omission in the list of those
furnishing supplies for Christmas
feasts was the firm of Messrs. S. J.
Levey it Co., which does a large
grocery business, and lays itself out
particularly for the Christmas busi
ness. This firm is to receive three
days before Christmas a lot of
turkeys on ice, brought from a far
country, and their entcrpiisc is
highly appreciated by those, trhoso
name is legion,' who consider tliat a
Christmas dinner without turkey is
like tho play of Hamlet with the part
of the Prince of Denmark omitted.
