less V-hain" would result In "impounding" the
e.ve./hick" Mr. Winchell thinks that gold
*„. n ! t circulate when it is in the vaults of a
hank and that the locking up of gold in the
»deral Treasury Is less a contraction of the
currency than the locking up of greenbacks
would He. This is certainly a most remarkable
idea Over 98 per cent of the business of the
country it is estimated, is transacted through
the m.diu-r, of bank checks. If the gold de
posited to secure those checks is not in clrcula
li.^n ivhere is it? And what would become of
the banker's business If he appropriated that
fcold to his own uses for the sake of cornering
It? The goose that laid the golden egg would be
a very dead bird. Manifestly, the gold In the
vaults of the banks belongs to the depositor
and not to th.- banker, and so long as checks are
drawn against It it is actively in circulation.
On the other hand, neither the gold nor the
greenback is in circulation while it lies in the
Federal Treasury, and the contraction of drcu
lation is in no manner related M the character
of th<» money so "impounded." It la one or the
«-eakn€waes of our Treasun system that the
rametit's surplus balance kept In its own
vaults is necessarily tak. n out of circulation,
but that subject Is not under discussion at pres
ent and nee I not be iborated.
THE REDEMPTION OF SILVER.
There remains the proposition for the redemp
tion of si'ver. All the silver that has been
.oined is practically serving the purpose of sub
sidiary circulation. It ls daily passing from
hand to hand in the form of bills of small de
nomination. The free silver balance in the
Tieasury seldom rises above $10,000,000. For
the banker or the capitalist or the speculator
to wrest it from the tradesman or the wage
earner and use it for a chain pump would be
a physical impossibility. It would mean the
retirement of the floating circulation and the
«toppage of all business— as detrimental to the
banker or the millionaire as to the tradesman or
th- irtisan. The experience of all civilized na-
Uons show? that the subsidiary circulation—
practically money of all denominations under
<q<i— not presented for redemption except for
replacement, when worn out, or when Us vol
iime is greater then business demands. At
I resent silver money la not exchangeable for
ild and retains its parity with gold merely
because its quantity is not so excessive as to
overcome the confidence inspired by the Gov
ernment's impractical but so far carefully re
garded pledge to maintain its equality. The
propo^-d law makes that pledge practical: sim
ply that and nothing more.
Let there be no half way measures. Let there
be no halting in the fight for the absolute
vtability of the b^.-t money standard on earth.
We cannot serve God and Mammon. If disaster
must come let it not be through cowardice and
. nmpromise with the forces of evil. Put up the
bars as fast and as high as they can be
raised and make the work of destruction as
■difficult as possible. Then, if free silver pre
vails, the crash v ill be no greater, and we
shall have the satisfaction of having done our
<lu+y If we leave the bars down ours will be
the' partial responsibility as well as the loss.

A COBBEBPONDENT UNDULY INDIGNANT
BECAUSE THE GOVERNOR HAS
TO CHANGE HIP MIND.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Tir: The announcement In the newspaper*
this morning that Governor Roosevelt has nom
inated Eradish Johnson to succeed Truman J.
Backus as a member of the Board of Managers
of the Lone Island State Hospital will be read
with astonishment by many persons who have
believed that the eernor really meant bis oft
repeated announcement at county fairs 'hat no
officer would lack support from him in dome
bia duty, or need fear the revenge of politicians
for having: done it. It baa been known to those
familiar with the Lunacy Department for some
lime that there was opposition to the reappoint
jiient of Dr. Backus, which he would not at
tempt to combat, but it was not supposed that
the brave Colonel Roosevelt would yield to the
Iffessure. Indeed, Colonel Roosevelt did not
think he would himself, for only a few days ago
he sent a letter to Alexander E. Orr, also a
: leriiher of the Long Island State Hospital
Board, saying that be had determined to reap
point Dr. Backus Those who remember how,
iibout a year ago, the Governor made a similar
statement, that another officer in the Lunacy
Department would be kept, and then in a few
<ia>s sent to the Senate the name of a friend of
.Mr. Odell who was so manifestly unlit that
he had to withdraw it in haste, may riot be
'Much surprised at this oozing: of Colonel Roose
velt's lighting blood.
Doubtless sev< ral ostensible reasons will be
r:v?h for supplanting Dr. Backus, who has been
i «-peatedly and unanimously elected president of
ihe . ing Island Hospital Board, and baa led in
I ringing order ut of the ebaos of the old Kings
County institution. The real reason however,
is probably not in Brooklyn, but In Western
New-York. The Hon. John Raines Is perhaps
having his revenge. Dr. Backus waa active in
i •forming a scandalous condition of affairs
which once existed in the hospital; and in doing
BO iai. countt-r to the Inter* sts of Senator Raines,
whose son-in-law was then superintendent of
th<- hospital. He f<-und it convenient to resign,
h.nd perhaps it is natural that Senator Raines
*h<".uld cherish resc-ntment over the incident, hut
what shall be thought of the Oovernor as the
role living mplar of high and austere political
morality? Or is this one of the as if when it is
necessary to be practical? I notice that Senator
Hain*-s was on ■he right side in voting to cdn
lirm Supterintendeni Payn's successor. I wonder
If a good bospaial manager had to be thrown
"verboard for ihe sake of the Insurance De
partment.

several other popular names represented on the

thing more than respect. The military sketches by
Detallle and De Neuville are delightful In their
way. The quaintly humorous anecdote by Grison
"After the Fete," is painted on too large a scale'
considerlnc the triviality of the motive, but through
the sheer power of good technique the artisi haa
given his work beauty nn dig nlty . Two consum .
tnately clever pieces of technique are in the show

masterpiece of its kind, touched with that charm
which Fortuny made fairous. but thoroughly lndi

but it contains workmanship as flne as may be

than that they are all good, representative ex

In one word of approval. The colkvtlon is to he

The vivacity and firmness of Befior Madrazo's
style Rive to hi? portraits an engaging quality.
The group of them now on exhibition at the Oehtne .
Gallery leaves an Impression of lightness and free- '
dom governed by knowledge and thorough work
manship. The blending of these elements Is Indis
pensable for the production of this artist's most :
characteristic and most admirable work. When he i
attacks a masculine theme and pluie* the em
phasis on th<-- vigorous simplicity which lies within
his scope he Is adequate, bui not particularly Im
pressive. The portraits of men In this show are
solid, digni&ed performances, but that is all. Some j
of the portraits of women, on tht- other hand, ars
captivating In their animation. In their sparkling
color and fluent, spontaneous handling. The "Mrs.
Winthrop." the "Mrs. Griffin " and the "Miss Rice"
are sjirited portraits, not very serious In feeling, i
but skilful in method, gay, praceful. and with a
note of elegance fitted perfectly to the occasion.
In the new Fifth Avenue Gallerj of Mr. X. E. :
Montross -i loan i ihlbrtion of landscaped and '
marines by Mr. 1). \V. Tryon has been arranged.
Twoscora picture* are shown. Including some
rather olj and familiar works and others with i
which the public (s probably not so well acquainted.
The effect of ail these paintings gathered together
is somewhut peculiar. Certain elements In Mr.
Tryon's art seem more conspicuous than hereto
fore. We realize more Strongly than ever how fond
he is of making the chief point In his composition j
a screen or rampart of trees, the top* forming an '
almost level line, while the foliage is generalised
with the utmost breadth. This might easily be- !
come a mannerism. It almost deserves the epithet I
now. But Mr. Tryon Is .*o strong in various other
directions that he can perhaps afford to return I
again and again to one note of design. In his In- |
terpretation of the spirit of landscape he has a
wide range. Exhilarating movement and vivid, but i
wonderfully refined, color In the "Sea, Morning." '
are exhibited under a clear, penetrating light. In j
the "Winter, Central Park," the t.i^ak sentiment of
the scene is lered with entire sympathy; *nU in !
the lovelj "Apple Blossoms,? with Its vibrating |
color, or the exquisite 'awn." Mr. Tryon Is as |
eloquent In a wholly different, because Infinitely j
more tender and lyrical, manner. Much Interest
attaches to his style, which is original and dis
tinguished. Hut he Is on*- of those landscape p.iint
ers In whom techniqu< and style ire subordinate to
poetli Inspiration. He Is to be praised as a painter
In the strictest acceptation of that term, but It is
because be reflects the beauty of nature In his
work, ! ause be has something spiritual to say In
it, that he Is important to American art.

OBIT I ARY.
THK PASSIXO THROXfr.
Georpp Thompson, of Chicago, is called abroad
annually by his business, and In consequence en
joys a wide acquaintance upon the
HOW £100 Continent. He told the following
BROUGHT story about a friend of his In Lon
£l,ooo,ooo. don yesterday at the Hoffman
House, to illustrate the possibilities
of mlnlnr- "My friend." saJd Mr. Thompson, "*W«a
and is a howling swell in London, but during hi*
former career there he suc.eeded In getting away
with almost all of a small but respectable fortune
which had come to him t.y Inheritance. When the
era^h came he turned naturally, as so many Eng
lUhmen <..t gooil .state do, to an open air life, nnd
determined to try and rehabilitate himself by going
into sheep raising In Australia. With the few hun
dred pounds he had saved from the wreck he made
his way to Melbourne, and finally purchased an In
terest In ami located on a sh»-ep ranch about two
hundred and nflv miles from that ity. For two or
three years life dragged along; he dldn'J do well,
but he didn't do ill, and the third year found him
manager aa well as part own< i of the ranch.
To him at this period came a man. whom he knew
quite well, who had located a mining claim which
he believed to be rich, but which he lacked money
to develop and so hv wished to sell a quarter of it
to my friend fof £1». At fcrst my ti\i\<\ would
have none of it. but. his Interest becoming aroused,
he finally made a counter proposition, offering to
play a game of cards to see whether he should
purchase a quarter interest for £100 or £200. He
won. and upon paying over the £100. no paper being
about, received a receipt for his quarter interest
on a rough jag of wrapping paper
"Another three years passed by. and by this time
the incident had slipped my friend's memory, when
one evening a mining broker from Melbourne with
whom he was acquainted, arrived at the ranch and
put up there for the night. After supper, In the
course of conversation, the broker casually said:
■By the way, you have an interest In the Broken
Hill Mine, haven't you." 'Not that I know of.' my
friend replied, but after some further conversa
tion the Incident came back to him. and ■ pro
longed search through some old boxes disclosed
the receipt. When they were once more settled
down my friend asked the broker if he thought it
■was of any value. 'No.' he replied, 'personally i
don't think it is. but there is considerable excite
ment about mines just now. and by manipulating
the stock 1 think i could make a good thing out
of It, but 1 don't believe the mine will ever pay. or
that you. In your position, could make anything
out of It.' After some more blarney of the same
kind he wound up with an offer of £2.000 for my
friend's Interest. That gentleman nearly dropped
dead from surprise, as he had been expecting a
£100. or possibly £200, offer and had about made up
his mind to sell at that figure. But £2.0ti0 was dif
ferent, so he told the broker that he would sleep
on it. The next morning he refused the offer, and
one for £5.000, and another for £10.000 that quickly
followed, telling the man that be would sell no pig
In a pok*. and that afternoon started for Mel
bourne personally to Investigate the matter, 10
rut a long story short, he was in on one of the
world's great strikes, and hi* Interest yielded him
no less a sum than E1.000,000. upon whl he Is to
day cutting a wide swath in London. He never saw
that Bbeep ranch again."
John Reading, of Denver, was speaking of the
changes In Western Ufa in a few decades, and in

11K IS iiI VINO UP ONLI HIS STOCK COMMI3
! SION Hi SINKSS
Although Kdnr.md Clarence Stedman haa sold his
peat on the New-York Stock Kxchange, he said
yesterday that that fact did not signify that he
would retlra from business life. He still had Inter
ests In Wall Street wblcb would require his atten
tion, and It was his purpose to continue to occupy
hla present offlVes at No. 16 Broad-st., but he
would no longer earn, on a stock commission busl
ness. Mr. Stedman some time ago had a long Ill
nesa which kept him from his orM.e for many
months, and on his return to business his physician
advised him that although his health was again
good, it wtus >!ra!>le for h m n.>t to unj-r'ake
again the strenuous work of a broker on thi Stock
Kxchange flooi Following this counsel, Mr. sted
man began to wind up his commission business,
to which in the old days he had always given his
personal attention on the Board, and with the s:tle
of hla Stock Kxehangf membership, as already
said, he abai lons entireiv this branch of h i busi
ness.
With onl) his personal business Interests to be
attended to, Mr. Stedman said yesterday he would
have much more leisure than formerly, and this
additional time lie Intended to devote to literature.
He had nearly completed his "American Anthol
ogy," a large volume upon which he had been en
gaged with b corps of assistants for nearly three
years, and which might be regarded as a rounding
out of his critical works on poetry, and he was now
prepared to enter upon any important ltterary un
dertaking Which might develop.
Mr. Sit im. while welcoming the prospect of
being able to give more time to literary work, nev
ertheless retires with a feeling of regret from
active pa'tlcipatlon In the affairs of the Street. In
which he hfts been engaged for thirty-- years.
He began business In the financial district in 1564.
at the time of the speculative activity in oil. and
prospered fn m the start. He soon forme,! a part

which year Mr. Stedman has had no partners.
