f 11 The Slotliodists.
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

l! Sl Bubject to foollfah and hurtful lusts, which
k f,' drown men In destruction and perdition."

H ! 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. Munillcont as aro
1 i his gifts to his donominntiou, ho has to fly
j? it occaslonallytoescapofromltsurgoftcy.Tho
W j' Methodist Klshops, moreover, gird at this
KJ ! munificent Standard Oil mngnuto by doclar-
('( lng that " tho grludlng and boullcss organs
i, of monopolies aro not only producing dan-
j gorous discontent, but arousing tendencies
R which, If not arrested, bodo riot and rovolu-
E tlon." 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,"
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
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.

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

linos, bocauso it will compel consumers in
Now York. Now England, nnd tho West to pay
tho samo rolatlvo prlcos for coal that are paid
by manufacturers nnd othor con su mors in
Pennsylvania. 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

Its Injustlco to tho holders of scores ot millions

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

States and consumors and oppressing our own

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

but tho discovery of tlio truth: follow all our
ideas to tholr natural conclusion, no mattor
what It bo: nnd not ovado. 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
