V , Next to tho Koman Catholics, tho most ;j i1' numerous body of Christian believers In f. i tho United States aro tho Mothodlsts, with p ; the Baptists closoly following. In theso j! j; threo Churches alone aro gathered about j fi thrco-quartors of tho ontiro number of pro- l i feeslng Christians, or,1n round numbers, l about 15,000.000 out of 20,000,000 in tho f fr, wholo population, according to tho ouumora- ; K tlon of tho last census. They aro also tho i t Churches which aro adauclng the most ' i rapidly, though all of them adhero strictly V ); to their standards of faith, and make no i j , concessions to tho present pantheistic and i 'K-, agnostic tendencies. I . Tho episcopal address to tho Methodist i J Conforenco now in session at Omaha, ro- L f ji ports that slnco tho Inst meeting of the B J ,- body, or In ,four years, neatly 450,000 per- iv i i eons havo been added io tho denomination, i i a nuihbor not much less than tho whole '.-, f; v number of communicants of tho Episcopal ' ? t Church, and equal to about one-third of the JS e, i total Presbyterian communion. Yet tho If I sj branch of the Methodists represented at ? H , Omaha comprises only about one-half of j t the Mothodlst family, Northern and South- :i fs eru, whlto and black. During tho same J p 4 abort porlod tho vnluo of tho Church St it' li" property has Increased by uenrly ono-flfth, : and tho contributions to missions and other jr ffi f1 denominational purpoios by one-third. f m K, Following the oxamplo of tho Roman A f , Catholics, tho Mothodlsts havo obtained a y ft i charter, appolntod a Hoard of Trustees, and f1 m ,' purchased a site for tho establishment of a sT m greot university at Washington. As a bo- i M ,J' ginning, $5,000,000 will bo required for such W i' Bn Institution, and the Bishops regard Ij l';r 410,000,000 as necessary for its full equip- V flftf ment, but they aro confident that tho i;j Bt mottoy will be raised. It Is true that kjk' BBju, tho great body of tho. Mothodlsts b BBBj aro poor In this world's goods, but ot re- Bf BJr ' C0Dt 'cars many largo fortunes havo been Ev' f PMi" accumulated, and tho Church will have to f icly chiefly on gifts from theso to obtain so M, BL Tut a sum. Yet tho llishopu aro foarful p IH about tho concentration of wealth in tho fy ' l' hands of tho fow. Tho symputhy of tho ff WM'P Church, thoy say, must bo with tho tolling 'v plj millions, and thoy aro not unmindful ot ,T El Wehxet's warning as to tho danger to -jj H Methodism of tho uccutnulutiun of material Bt IIkv riches, " It Is an extremely difficult thing," Bw JpR timy doclaro, " for a rich man to bo a real Fv FW?

For that reason, probably, tho Mothod- D I, lets aro tireless lu Importuning tholr ijt If; rich men for gifts to tho Church. N If Thoy want to save thorn from tho j peril of overlasting destruction. It Is ro- JV C ported that among tho Baptists also a llko S I Bolldtudo prevails, and that it Is especially l I ectivo concerning tho fato of tliosoul of Mr. 13 S John I. IlocKtFELiiEit.

Yet thoy say that "tho Church has no f V hopo In tho mob and cannot sot Itsolt In In- 4 dlbcdinluato denunciation agaiust wealth," iftiiii How It Is to discriminate In tho assault thoy do not explain: and thoy do not von turo to dotormlno how and how much wealth may bo accumulated, though tho " rapid accumulation of enormous wealth " scorns to bo on ovll In tholr eyes. Tho run ot men, howevor, aro anxious to got rich as fast as possible and thoy aro not troublod with any foars about tho woalthbolng too enormous. Tho blggor tho pllo tho bettor thoy will llko it. whothor thoy bo Mothodlsts. baptists, or Roman Catholics. This Is also tho sentiment of tho African Methodists, nnd thoy express It with com mendable frnnknoss. At thoGonornl Confer ence of ono of tholr branches at Pittsburgh on tho samo day. Bishop MooitE exhorted tho colored Methodists to accumulate money. Ho urged on thorn tho necessity ot gottlng wealth, saying that It would bo tho moans of lifting tho negro rnco from Its present condition. For years past tho col ored Methodist preachers, nt tho South moro particularly, havo been making this samo appeal to their flocks. Put money In thy purse. Is tholr persistent cry: nnd It Is uttorcd not loss loudly In tho quarterly mrignzlno which represents tho best lutolloctunl cultivation and most dovout religious spirit of tho colorod peo ple. They cannot hopo to advance In tho social eealo, say theso monitors of their race, unless thoy accumulate wealth and consequently advanco In refinement of liv ing: nnd tho moro rapid tho accumulation tho bettor. Tho Bishops at Omaha aro consistent In their opposition to tho liquor traffic. Thoy do not assail tho saloon and excuso drink ing at homo: nor do they Justify a preacher In drinking beer nt night with naked womon nnd then applaud him for going away from the vllo resort to close up beer shops. Thoy counsel total ab stinence ovorywhoro nnd under all cir cumstances. Thoy ndvocato tho closing up of tho saloons altogether, not merely on Sundays and after 1 o'clock nt night. ' Complete legal prohibition of tho trnfllo ns tho rigid duty of tho State." Is their consistent ground. Assailants of tho sa loons who smoll of liquor thomsolvos, got no countenance from theso Methodist Bishops. Thoy aro consistent also In opposing tho prohibition of all Chlnoso Immigration as Christian and Inhuman. Thoy would "guard tho frahchlso by lengthening tho tlmo of nppronticeship for its onjoyment by Immi grants." Thoy look on " tho 6cculnr press as tho most masterful force dovolopod by our modern civilization ;" but thoy think Its moral and religious tono may bo Improved, nnd this Is undoubtedly truo. Every paper should bo, first of nil, a icllglous paper, sound and elevated In Its mornl principles, nnd faithful to It's obligations to God. Finnlly, tho Bishops urge nnd long for tho union of tho separated branchos of tho Methodist family, with Its total member ship of almost flvo millions. Thoy ought to como together. Divisions which aro geographical, and In raco only, ought not to continue Tho champions of tho samo faith ought to rally undor tho snmo colors, and It would be nn lmmonso blessing if tho union could extend so far as to lncludo Protestants nnd Catholics In ono groat nrmy consolidated for tho war against tho devil. The Blnckwell's Island Bridge. With tho signaturo of Governor Floweb to tho Blackwell's Island Bridge bill, tho project which Dr. Thomas Rainey and his associates havo so long been pushing amid many dolays, becomes practically avail able Again and again tho moasurohas possod ono House or tho other, nnd when It passed both It was checkod by a veto. Now at last tho woy Is open for tho work of construction, which presents no very for midable engineering obstacles. Tho special purpose of this enterprise Is to establish rapid and direct roll connection between Long Island and Now York and thenco over oxlsttng routes with all parts of tho country. This Is to bo accomplished by a bridge crossing the East River at Black well's Island, on which its central piers will rest, and having clear spans between that Island and tho shores. Tho two spans nro so moderate in length as to give no troublo or oxcessivo cost In building. Tho main problem from tho first has concerned tho approaches on tho New York side, which must bo so planned as to glvo access, by an easy and convenient descant, to tho tracks of tho Now York Central Railroad, with which tho desired rail connection Is to bo made. Tho rights of property owners In a densely built and populated city had to be considered, and tho objections to one form and another of tho plan had to bo mot. On tho othor shore tho bridge, of tor cross ing Blackwell's Island porhnps south ot tho centre, reaches Long Maud City nt Ravens wood. The- elevated approaches traverse Ravonswood Park, keep on to tho Flushing and North Sldo Railroad, and thence fur ther Into tho interior, making a total dis tance ot nearly two miles on that sldo. Two stations will be established on these ap proaches. Tho wholo structuro will havo a length ot moro than threo and a halt mile?, with n height sufficient not to Impede shipping. It will havo two railroad tracks, and bo strong enough to carry heavy trains drawn by nlnoty-ton locomotives at forty miles an hour. Besides the main bridge and its approaches there will be an Important branch on the long Island side, running across Nowtown Crook and Wil liamsburgh to the heart of Brooklyn. The bill as signed provides that tho bridgo must bo at least 150 foot nbovo mean high water at tho mlddlo ot each channel, and must accommodate passengers and all kinds of vohlcles. In Now York tho southern arm or approach Is to begin east of Park nvenuo, within ono mllo ot the Grand Central Sta tion: but tho northern arm may bo cither north or south of tho Harlem Rlvor, Tho bridgo must cross Blackwell's Island, or tho rocks south of It, at right angles to tho two cbannols, and at such a point as will glvo reasonable grades and facility of approach. It must not cross Park, Madlbou, or Fifth avenue within a district bounded by Fiftieth and Nine tieth streets and Third avonuo, or en ter that district. It roust bo begun boforo March 3, 1833, and bo completed boforo March 3, 1900, unless delayed by legal pro ceedings, strikes, accidents, or certain othor causes. Thcro nro provisions for ao qulrlng prlvato proporty, and for paying one por contum ot tho gross earnings of tho bridgo nnd Us connections, In specified pro portions, to Now York and Long Island City after a certain earning power shall havo been roached. There aro provlslono. albo, for further extensions of tho ap proaches in Now York: but no part of tho bridgo or its approaches " shall, except at tho termini thoteof, bo less than 16 feet nbovo any street, avonuo, or public place, or less than 14 foot abovo any existing elo voted railroad which may be crossed." To uppor Now York and the oppoBlto shore this bridgo will obviously furnish fa cilities ot communication which aro locking In tho Brooklyn Bridgo, admirable as is tho latter for Its purpose In addition, It can hardly fall to havo a very great influonco in building up tho region north ot Nowtown Creak, and, indeed, north uud cast of tho MHBBBHBflBBHBBBMBB Navy Yard. Hero a vast population can bo housed comfortably at a most modorata an nual oxponso. slnco tho land Is comparative ly cheap, considering Its proximity to Now York. What has boon noodod to mako it a wonderful district for dwellings Is rapid transit, and this will now bo furnished. Add tho Important Influonco on tho pros perity of Long Island as n wholo. which may bo expocted from tho closo connection of Its ontiro railroad systomwlth the one which proceods from tho Grand Central Station to all parte of tho country, ami tho Importanco of tho Blackwell's Island Bridgo will be appreciated. With this now bridge, tho cxletlng bridge, and tho ono projected between them, throo gront highways will span tho East River, and nil will doubtless llnd In tlmo abundant HBO with tho stondy and vast growth of tho great cities on Its shores.

Our Buffolo-or-bust contemporary sooms to bo unaware that In 1833 Its candidate was willing to give tho matchless momentum of his genius nnd statesmanship to a straddlo platform. Ho was willing and nuxlous to havo tho Domocrntlo party rosort to what every convinced free trador must regard as a subtorfugo of dlssombllng.

Ho trlod to turn, to back slide to crawl, but Col. Henby Wattebson whlppod him into lino again, and rotusod to pormlt tho contomplatod bunco gamo against tariff roform.

Ho has boon a wabbling and provnrlcating tariff reformer, though his consecration to himself has nevor wavered or weakened; and he still persists In announcing his con viction that ho is a. pressing necessity and long-felt want. In regard to this position ho has always boon consistent, nor has he ever attempted to hide from his country men his belief that ho Is groat and good, and " a blgor man " than his party. w 9Ir. Gladstone's Pamphlet on the Wo man Question. Now that wo know the exact purport of Mr. Gladstone's pamphlet, wo can seo that his opposition to female suffrage Is not provisional, but final. He does. Indeed, point out some lmmodlato obstacles, such as the proposed bestowal ot tho franchise only upon householders and the exclusion ot hundreds ot thousands of lodgers: such again as the discrimination between mar riod and unmarried womon, as if a mistress of a household had a smaller stake In the community. Ho maintains, too, that tho great majority of women havo as yet glvon no Indication of a desire to vote, for the reason, probably, that thoy obtain every thing thoy want from legislation conducted undor existing conditions. Mr. Glad stone, however, docs not rest his caso upon theso objections. Ho avors that thoro Is an unchangeable difference of social functions between tho sexes, that this difference Is part of the structuro ot things, that It does not rest upon custom or convention, or any action of tho stronger sex, but upon causes not floxlblo and elastic, like most mental qualities, but physical and in their nature unchangeable Of courso. If this argument Is sound, it Is decisive and will prove as effectual a barrier against woman suffrage a century honce as it does now. It Is truo that the Rollit bill discrim inated against women generally as com pared with men, and against marrlod women as compared with tho unmarried. Instead of enforcing tho political equality ot tho Boxes and consequently conferring tho franchise upon thoso women as well as thoso men who live In lodgings, it confined tho privllogo to womon who are house holders. It also restricted tho right of voting to spinsters and widows othorwlso qualified. But, from tho viewpoint of ex pediency, there was a reason for these lim itations; they aro prescribed already for tho womon permitted to vote in county and town elections. Tho purpose of tho Rollit bill waa simply to avoid the Imputation of taking a step in the dark by giving tho Parliamentary franchise to a class of womon who had already Bhown thomsolvos competent to exorcise tho municipal and county franchise Almost all the members of Parliament who voted for tho bill, and almost all ot Its supporters in the commu nity at large, declared that thoy regarded it only as an Installment ot a rightful ro form, and expressed tho conviction that its passage would bo speedily followed by moro liberal concessions. So much for the first ot Mr. Gladstone's arguments. It is truo enough that a majority ot the womon of Great Britain havo not yet signi fied In a clear and peremptory way a wish to enjoy tho suffrage. Tho Women's Liberal Association Is divided on the question. The nowspaper called Woman oxprcssoa the hopo that tho privilege ot voting will not bo granted until thoso whom it is Intended to benoflt aro ready for It. That Journal holds with Mr. Gladstone that such is not yet tho caso, and avers that tho average woman cares as yet not ono Jot about the franchise To this it may be onsworod that every groat reform Is the work of an Intelligent, far slghtod. and zealous minority, Tho over throw of Cuaiiles I tho English revolution of 1088, and oyon tho Fronch revolution woro tho triumphs of a minority. It Is probablo that, had tho wishes of tho Thirteen Colo nies been testod by secret ballot In 1770, tho Declaration of Indopendonce would not havo mot with approval. It Is Improbable that a majority of any disfranchised class, unless goaded to rebellion by Intolerable outrages, has ever mado an earnest attempt at emancipation. It would bo absurd to speak of women sufforlng intolerable op pression under the existing political system of Great Britain. It is not truo, howovor, that thoy do not undergo discrimination, or that thoy have reason to bo perfectly aatlsfied with tho outcomoof tho legislation In which thoy toko no port. On the very day before that on which the Rollit bill was beaten Dr. Huktkb'b Divorce bill came up. The chief aim ot this measure waa bo to amend tho presont unequal law of dl vorco as to ranko It boar with equal press ure upon both eoxos. The present law gives a husband tho privllogo ot Infldollty undor specified conditions, whllo Btlll re taining a legal hold ovor his wife If a wo man, on tho othor hand, commit a Blnglo act of Infidelity, sho may bo divorced. Hero plainly Is a law in which womon havo an equal lntorost with men, yot which, bo ing tho creation of Parliaments In which womon havo no representation, boars uno qunlly on tho two boxcs. If women had tho franchlso they would rovlso this law. Wo como now to tho last and weightiest of Mr. Gladstone's arguments, that, name ly, which rests upon tho physical and there fore Inorndlcablo difference between mon nnd women. Womon aio by comparison physically weak, and consequently thoy must bo disfranchised, because lu tho last analysis governmont must rest on force Such Is Mr. Gladstone's position, and ho ianot by any moans tha only mnn ot mark who occupies it. Mr. Goldwin Smith has Bald : " Tho law. aftor all, though tho fact may bo rough and unwolcomo, rests nt bot tom on tho forco of tho community, nnd tho forco of tho community Is mole No woman can Imagine that her sex can executo, or, in cobo of rebellion, reassert tho law; for that thoy must look entirely to men." Even Joitn Stuaht Mill, tho groat champion of woman's suffrago, has pointed out that "tho Justification ot an Insurrection do ponds upon tho prospects of Its success." That Is to say, an Insurrection ot a major ity of males against a Government con trolled by a majority of females would bo Justified by tho promlso ot victory. Con sidering this aspect of tho question, a cor respondent of tho Pall Mall Gasette Inquires what would happen It In Franco men nnd womon were politically equal, and an ap peal woro mado to tho country upon tho question of a clerical monarchy vs. an nntl oicrlcal ropubllo ? Ho assumes that at such a crisis 7,000,000 fomnlos would comblno with 4,000,000 inalos to Impose a clorlcal Govern ment against tho wishes of 7,000,000 moles associated with 3,000,000 fomalos. Is it to bo supposed, ho asks, that tho 7,000,009 mnlos would submit to tho dictation of 4,000,000? He roplles In tho negative avorrlng that a revolt would bo inevitable and that tho first act of tho restored malo Government would bo to doprlvo women of tholr politi cal privilege It will not do to press this argument from bruto forco too far. It may easily bo made to provo too much. Pushod to Its logical extremity. It would withhold the suffrage, not only from women, but from all males who had passed tho military ago. It Is quito concolvablo that. If tho question woro put whether a glvon country should go to war, by far tho largest fraction of theaftirmatlvo majority might bo contributed by men whoso ago would rellovo thorn from tho burdons of military sorvlco. Such would probably havo been the result could the vote of Franco havo beon fairly polled at any period of tho Napoloonto wars. Does It fol low that the numerical minority would or could rebel ? Manifestly not, because tho numerical majority, although relatively disabled In respect of youth nnd strength, would havo In its hands all the machinery of government, tho army and navy, tho po lice and tho courts of Justice In the excep tional cose then and all admit that it would bo an exception whoro a considera ble majority of females should bo upon ono side, und a majority of malos Upon tho other, thoro would bo no moro danger of revolution than thoro Is now at tho raro junctures when a majority of tho young and ablo-bodlod men find themselves ar rayed at tho ballot box agalnBt a majority of those who have passed tho military ago. Men do not fight against tholr fathers and cldor brothers because tho latter have out voted them: and thoy would not fight, wo may bo sure on such a provocation against tholr eldor sisters and their mothers. The Government's Architecture. Tho Government of tho United States pays moro tor its architecture than any prlvato Individual, corporation, or munici pality In the country, nnd, in addition thereto, docs not get tho sort of buildings that It requires. Unless It Is interfered with, tho Government will contlnuo to pay high prices and rocelvo In roturn Inferior articles, because tradition and an ovll habit aro things which tho Government cannot spontaneously shako off. Thoro is a way, howovor, whereby tho Govornment can enjoy tho advantages which aro shared by tho prlvato Individuals, tho corporations, and tho municipalities that got tholr monoy's worth when thoy eroct a building. Congress should pass Houbo bill No. 8,152, which confors upon tho Secretary ot tho Treasury tho powor to in vito tho competition of architects and so cure their sorvlces In precisely tho samo way that ordinary persons do. Thoofrlco ot Supervising Architect of tho Treas ury, as it is at prcsont 'adminis tered, is an absurdity: but an .ab surdity ot a very serious kind, slnco it inlllots upon the country oxecrablo build lugs at most extortlonato prices. Under tho proposed lnw tho real urchitocts ot tho country would build tho national Btruo turos, which thoy aro absolutely prohibited from doing at present. Real architects aro not patriots, and thorcforo they do not clamor to abandon Incomes of from 150,000 to $150,000 a yoar to undertake the hercu lean labors ot tho Treasury architect on a salary which to them would amount to only aplttanco por annum. Nevertheless thoro Is no projoot to which they would moro Jealously address them selves than tho erection of national struc tures which qppeal at once to their personal pride, sense of nationality, and artistic qualifications. Decidedly, the bill should bo passed, and with neither hesitation nor delay, ...'.teT.yrTHWH makes no epneealraent pf hl belief that If Mr. Cunui i It nominated he will be defeated. He eare tbe toldler element, which venerally oppoaed him before, would oppoio mm more wildly BOW.-fcttuiujuft. Jwmol It should also be undorstood that tho eoldlor olomont Is attached to David Bennett Hill more warmly, probably, than to any other statesman ot any party. Our esteemed contemporary, the Kansas Cxtu Journal, declares, not without a kindly sontlmontal moUturo in Its Vonerable orbs, that the novollits ot England and America "are writing purely from a commercial basts, to sell" Wo ontruat our friend In Missouri to wipe Its weeping eyes. There was n chap of the numo of Suakx sfxiius who used to turn out stuff on a purely commercial basis; and yot to-day hli works are regarded In Boston as only looond to thoso ot Ibsen. Tho notion that genius It great In proportion as it is not appreciated Is woet to every Gifted Horsixs ; and ret Fame sometimes carries a pockvtbook. Mr. William Johnson of Woodland, Kan sas, avors that he hat found In a swamp on his farm the fossil remains of a prehlstorlo deer, fifteen foot high. That Is the kind of produot which Kansas could produoe- to-day were it npt that our statesmen have averted their eye from the Ocala platform. Kansas Is not much of a deer State now, simply because tha dew SSbS&bIHbHE hare been frlghtined away by Wall street; but aire to tho country a PofTorlan Congress and rumen Longobard for President, and tho doer would bo-why, Jenny Simpson estimates that If hlssystom otundcreround banks could havo a fair trial, tho common Knnsns craRohoprer would hootloast twenty-two foetlong.

Ilocauso Insane railroad man agement hat hithorto enabled Now York to obtain our unthraclto coal chxapor than our own homo consumers thoy insist that this injuBtico to Pennsylvania, and this palpa blo wrong to our Industry and to our trans portation linos shall continue indefinitely. Of courso. tho frantlo complaints made br the Now York journals prosont tho coal com bine ns oppressing tho poor ot that city by a slight advanco on antliraolto coal, but they carefully omit tho Important fact that tha poor people of New York pay throo hundred fold more to tho retailers of coal in that city than tho increased prlco mado by tho Heading organization. Coal retailed to tho poor ot Now York In small quantitios is sold at from -00 to 300 por cent advanco upon tho prlco at which It Is delivorod to retailors In Pennsylvania. Thoro will bo no variation in tho prlco of cool to the poor consumers, no mattor how cheaply coal can bo obtained: and to all who are ablo to purchase on thn most economical plan, the advanco will bo Insignificant If unreasonable nnd unjust no mattor how small the advance, it would bo lndcfenslblo; but In this caso It Is both reasonable and just and the pooplo ot Pennsylvania mean to en force oxact justice botwoon themselves and distant consumers of anthraclto coal, bocauso thoy are woary of persistent and oppressive discrimination ngainstthomsolvos. Tho man ufacturers and consumors of anthraclto In Pennsylvania aro entitled to it at cheaper rates than tho manufacturers nnd consumors of Xow York. Now England, nnd the West and Ponnsyhanla will not pormlt any departure from this sound and justillablo policy. Bocouso ot this unjustdiscrimtnatlon against Pennsylvania manufacturers and consumors of anthraclto coal, caused by tho cut-throat competition of transportation linos, thoro are nearly or quito $70,000,000 of unproductive coal stocks and socurltics heldchlolly by our people. For many years thoy havo not ro celvod a farthing ot Interest or dlvidond, and tho fatal policy so long pursued by our trans portation companies lias not only dealt fearful Injustice to Pennsylvania manufacturers and consumers, but It has been oven moro fatal in Its Injustlco to tho holders of scores ot millions ot legltlmnto railroad Investments. Tho fact that Pennsylvania has a monopoly ot anthraclto coal will not warrant any policy that would oppress consumors in other States; but it sooms inconceivable that we havo so long sustalnod a policy ot favoring all distant States and consumors and oppressing our own pooplo.

Nkw IUvkn, May 2.-My last lettor wai out short bocauso I got vory tlrod just after stat ing why tho gold mon on tho Inst Congression al Coinage Committoo woro correct in saying that gold hndnn "unchanged and unchango ablo value." I told the sllvormnn with whom twos arguing that all tho groat financial au thorities held that gold novor varied In vnluo. because its value was an Intrinsic, or an In sldo. aluo. and thoroforo was unafTocted by oitherloglslatlon or clrcumstanoesnf any kind. " Now." said ho, "you havo restod your caso on tho propositions mado.

In tho slightest do groo. any fact or point whatsoever which has a direct bearing on the money nuostlon." Thee remarks surprised mo bocauso I hnd oxnecteil myopponont would do tho squirm ing. Hut 1 concealod my foollncs nnd replied thnt Inordorto bo porfeclly frank I should say that nolther my fellow bnnkors nor myself havo publicly expressed our ultlmoto aim in rcgnrd to the national currency. Our vlows nnd purpose are those, to wit: tlold Is tho only thing possessing a llxod lntrlnslo vnluo. Thoroforo gold Is tho only honest moasuro of value, ant) nothing but gold should bo a local tondor. Wo should burn up tho groonbocks just ns fast as thoy como Into possession of tho Oovornmont Wo should repeal all sllvor leg islation. Tho sllvor bullion now In thu Treas ury vaults should bo Immediately sold at uuo tlon. All tho silver dollars now In tho Treas ury, nnd all othor sllvordollars ns soon as thoy como Into the Treasury, should bo molted down nnd sold at auction. Of courso, wo wont to uso national bank notos. but thoy would bo undor our control, nnd t o could contract thorn whenover wo thought It judicious to do so. Ab a matter of discretion we havo not thought it wise to stnto those things for f oar of alarm ing tho Ignorant voters, llut thisls whnt wc want ns soon ns wo can got It and I think wo ought to boldly proclaim tho truth and our faith in honost monoy. Tho silver man smiled and said: "Isupposod Wfilt nn11tr inntn,l I. V .... 1 . 1... . .a i you really wanted what youhao just stated. Now, toll mn whothor the inovltnblo result of accomplishing your purpose would not be to ruin tho majority of debtors nnd to put most of tho national wealth Into still fewer hands than It now Is V" Of courso. I ndmlttod that a tremendous convulsion would occur whllo wo were going through tho proeoss of gottlng Into n sound llnnnclal condition. At present everything is In da tod. bocauso our measures of valuo aro not honost Destroy this dlBhonost monoy. nnd thon wages and prlcos would co down whore thoy really belong. This would bo a lino thing for tho poor ponslonors and poor savings bank depositors, because, tho best wheat flour would not bo ovor two dollars a barrel nnd all othor necessaries equally cheap. Ilut I pointed out that no real valuo would bo destroyed, bocauso what the debtors lost the creditors would gnin. Moroovor. I showed that If an olderiy dobtor should thus losohis property, llttlo harm would result bocauso In the course of nature his life would soon ond, any way. and thon ho would not nood proporty. And if a young dobtor lost his proporty. It mado llttlo differenco to him, bocauso ho would then bo down on " hord pan " and could start and build up on a good foundation. Tho sllvor man then said: "This Is just what I know you all thought and did not dare say. Now that you havo lot ono cat out of tho bag. lot mo ask you this: What effect on the valuo ot gold would be producod it (without an unexpected Increase in tho supply ot gold) the movement ottho past twenty years against silver should contlnuo until sllvor woro no longer used as monoy. anywhore on earth?" This proposition I had nevor thought of. and so I sat still and said nothing. I was worried. Finally my npponont said: "Of course, you admit that such a procoduro would onormously increase tho domnnd for gold. Lot ub be hon est and candidly follow out our promises and seo whore wo land." After thinking tho mattor ovor a whllo. Icon eluded to t-tko the bull by tho horns, and so I said: " As gold has a fixed Intrinsic vnluo. an Increased demand for gold could not and would not nltor that Insldo vnlun In tho least." Whon I had said this I noticed that my antag onist woro a very cunning smile. Thinks I to myself, what I havo stated is logical and must bo truo. but somohow or othor my In stincts toll mo that I havo fallen into a hole. Whoroupontho cold sweat ran down my back. Thon tho sllvor man blandly smiled nnd said : "If over gold dollar has a llxod Intrin sic vnluo, doos It mako any difference In the amount ot this valuo whothor tho number of those dollars bo largo or small ?" I replied that, as each dollar had a llxod tn trlnsio vnluo. tho number of thoso moosurosot value wasan entirely Immaterial clrcumstanoo. Of courso. oaoh dollar, in nny caso, must always havo tho samo valuo; just as each bushel is tho samo sizo. no mattor how largo nor how small tho pllo of grain It measures. No mat tor how large the number of yardsticks, each ono Is just throo feot long. Just so with an honost measure of valuo. to wit a gold dollar. Whoroupon ray opponont said: "That Is a consistent answor. and must bo true If your promlsos bo truo. Now. ploaso tell mo what effect on tho valuo of gold would result from tho discovery of a mlno from which ton thou sand millions of gold could readily bo taken in ono yonr?" This question mado mo swoat more than over. I saw that my promises mado tho logi cal answor to It: It would make no dlffuronca whatever. But somohow I folt thnt such an event would onormously diminish tho value of gold. Bo. nftor thinking nnd sweating a whllo. I snid I could not answer that question be cause no such mlno had boon found. "Ah!" snys tho Silverman, "now you aro, evading and nro not Booking tho truth by a candid statomont You thereby Indirectly admit that your promlsos aro wrong, bocause you cannot follow them out I,et that pass for thoprosont Please tell mo it it Is not n fact thnt ovory ono of thoso whom you call llnan clnl authorities, prior to 187'-', all spoko of both gold and sllvor as being equally possessod of an intrinsic aluo?" I replied that tho authorities, boforo 1872, had all spokon of gold and sllvor monoy as be ing both alike possessed of an unvarying, In trns!oalue. In fact. In 18fl!) tho silver dol lar bail nn Intrinsic valuo of ovor live por cent great or than the iutrlnulo aluo of tho gold dollar, llut, I added, slnco 1HT2 sliver has lost part of Its Intrlnsio value. " Woll," said my opponent " tho silver dollar has tho samo wolcht and Is composed ot pre cisely tho samo materials now as boforo 1872. Please tell me, If ft had intrlnsio value then greater than that of a gold dollar, how it could e or havo lost somothlng which wanlnhorent -was inside, or intrlnsio value. Ploaso ojso Mate how this Miluo became lust and what became ot it It it were lost, I should llko to' know whothor nny ono found It" Thoso questions utterly confused me. I saw that I had got mytolf Into a false and humili ating position. A llttlo creek ot cold sweat ran down my bnck. I snw It was no uao to t-ay that legislation had caused silver to loss a part of its Intrlnsio value, becuuso I had started out with doctrino that legislation could not effect Intrlnsio value, I could not think of any other explanation, becauco I had assumed that intrlnsio value was entire ly unafTocted byclrcumsfancos. Bo I sat and thought and sweatod. And tho moro I tried to see out of my predicament the moro I sweated. Finally I said, I am unable to answer these questions. If you can tell mo" what has bo come of a portion ot the intrlnsio value ohm possessed by a silver dollar I wish you would do so. Whereupon my opponent replied; " That Is just m easy as rolling off a log. The silver dollar has not lost any Intrlnsio value, for tho simple reason that It never had any." I hnd oxpooted my antagonist to say that the demonetization of silver had taken every part of its Intrlnsio value by diminishing the de mand for thnt metal, nnd that freo coinage would restore tho Intrlnsio valuo which had bcon thus lost I expressed my astonishment and asked for nn explanation. Thorcupnntho sllvor man said: "A short tlmo ago there wcro n consldornblo numhor of learned astronomors in tho world who know very llttlo nbout astronomy, bocauso thoy (im posed tho earth was flat nnd tho sun moved nround It Thoy had pllod theory on thoory without over examining tholr primary assump. tlons. As soon ns tho actual tacts boenma known, tholr so-called 'sclonco' tumbled dowa In tho mud. Wo havo now many "learned ( financiers' who nro In a condition similar to that of tho emlnont astronomers. They havo novor studied tho foundation ot sound llnnnco: to wit tho subjoct of valuo.

As an Inovltnblo sequcnoa of starting from fnlso premises, thoso 'learned flnnnclors' havo stumbled and groped In the dark, nnd found tholr predictions continually refuted by events.
