The American Manufacturer in last

steel trade: "The last week seems to
have tieen unusually quiet in the local

week has been decidedly monotonous
In all branches the waiting policy seems
to be general. Nobody is buying any
thing they can do without just now, con
stiuently the volume of business
small. To further delay the expected
improvement, troubles over the wage

been exploded in the
money in tho country would le greatly , jx
enlarged, when in point of tact jus uie
reverse would be the result.
We have now io round nunilers about
$l.f! M,000,000 of money in circulation, i
over $000,000,000 of which are g'-Id. the j
remaiuder l-ing nemly equally divided
between silver and paper.
If this government were to adopt the
free and unlimited coinage of silver, it
would at once bring the United States to
the pilver standard of value along with
he other free silver countries of the
world, such as China. Japan, Mexico,
India, etc., and gold wou.d cease to
circulate as money and would be simply
an article of commerce.
Thus by adopting the silver standard
over $"00,000,0ti0 of our present circu
lating medium wonld be at once retired,
and remain out of circulation as long as
the silver standard wasi maintained
by the government.
The remaining $l,000,000,0Hl of our
circulating medium would be at once
reduced to just one half its present value.
and it would require f-' or our snver
Standard money, both paper and coin,
to buy the amount of any commodity or
necessary of life that can now le bought
for one dollar that is maint lined on the
gold standard.
Thus the silver standard would lessen
our money circulation over $000,000,000
of gold, the only alisolntely sound mon
ey now circulating among the people,
to half that amount of money at our
present gold standard of value.
In short, free silver would retire over
$000,000,000 of gold. from our present
circulating medium, and would reduce
the other $1,000,000,000 to $T00,000.-
000 of actual value; and instead of $1,-
000,000, of money, free silver would
leave our people with only $500, 000.0(H)
of paper and silver money, estimating it
at its purchasing value.
Instead of having over $1,000,000,000
as we have now, free silver would re
duce the circulating medium of this
country, in its purchasing power, to but
$500,000,000, and the more silver mon
ey we issued, and the more paper mon
ey we issued on the basis of silver, the
cheaper our money would become.
Thus free silver, instead of increasing
the volume of our circulating medium
as many thoughtlessly assume, would
not only absolutely deprive us of more
than one-third of our present money,
and the best part of it, but would rednce
the value of our remaining silver and
paper just one half in its purchasing
The free silver advocate who urges free
coinage to increase the circulating me
dium, must be either fool or knave, as
the facts are as elear as the unclouded
sun of noondav.

The Southern delegates to the Repub
lican national convention, who with the
exception of two or three leaders are
colored men, can find no shelter in the
Republican city of St- Louis, not even
food, unless they resort to the low ne
gro dives. They cannot obtain tempo
rary lodging in the pullman palace cars,
into which no colored man can enter
except as an attendant or waiter. In
this kind of treatment Republican or
gaus may find a reason why the masses
'of the Southern negroes vote the Demo
cratic ticket. Since the enfranchise
ment of the colored people the Republi
can politicians have treated them merely
as "voting cattle." Democratic politi
cians may not hold them in higher es
teem, but they have more respect for the
rights of the "man and brother" under
the constitution and the laws.
Xo mas in his senses, says the Chica
go iTimex-IIeraul, can deny that the
countries in which wages are lowest and
tbe social conditions of labor the most
degraded are the countries having silver
as the monetary measure of value. The
most conspicuous of these countries are
Japan, China and Mexico. The little
new spurt of activity in Japan means
nothing yet for labor. It is but a bub
ble in a sea long dead. As rapidly as
the country advances there will be the
inevitable drift to the gold standard, ac
companied with a rise in wages, which
will have the effect, in due time, of so
increasing the cost of manufactures in
Japan as to lessen the possibility of ever
becoming a rival with the Western ooun
tries possessing in their soil in unlimited
quantities the raw materials that are the
basis of the great industries of the world
the metallic and the textile, in which
xnereiore, japan, even when it shall
reach the gold standard, can have no
hope of competing with the United
States anywhere, nor with Great Britain
except in Asia.
The second most obvious fact in the
progress of nations, and in their condi
tion to day, is that the greatest prosperi
ty is coincident with the gold standard
and that the country which was the first
to adopt it exclusively and has main
tamed it longest without vacillation
presents the highest example of national
progress, excepting the United States,
whose most remarkable progress is also
associated with the gold standard.
A Washington correspondent of the
Springfield Republican, in speaking of
the silver question says:
If the silver frenzy finally sweeps the
country and makes possible the plunge
to a siiver basis, with the scaling of obli
gations which this will imply, the people
and the politicians of the Northeast will
have themselves largely to blame. That
there is something wrong with the ex
isting economic system, which impov
erishes the south and west for the lene-
fit of special classes, few will deny who
have traveled through tho6e sections or
come in contact with their people. The
demand for free coinage of silver is but
the groping of a blinded and imprisoned
giant who is seeking some means of
freeing his limbs with the purpose of
using them in caring for and protecting
his own. The vast extent of country,
the con Uict of interest between the sec
tions, the incompetence and dishonesty
of politicians, and the predominance of
n o-al over economic issues after the
moral issues have been decidt d, have
ground the south and west between the
upper and nether millstones of a high
tariff above and a wretched currency
system beneath until the victim is mak-
ng a last effort for freedom which
threatens to pull down the entire fabric
of our social and financial system.
Whatever may be said for the protec
tive system in developing y uig indus
tries and in raising wages under tempo
rary conditions in particular cases, it is
hardly a subject of dispute that it has
continuously taken money from the
pockets of fie farmers of the west in the
enhanced price of their agricultural im
plements, their woolen clothing, their
implements of iron and steel and even
the tin utensils of the kitchen. What
ever may have happened in recent years
as the results of that violent competi
tion which high protection engenders
within the protective wall, it was the
avowed purpose and result of the pro
tective system in the beginnirg to , raise
the prices of manufactured goods. He
who denies it denies the purpose and ben
efits of the system. This being the case, it
becomes easy to make arougtVcalculation
of the toll levied by protection upon the
i,000,000 farmers of the south and
falling over eac h other to annou
ailfgiiMv-e to McKiuiey.

viding line, but was qiickly shelved
by the house, which voted to lay it on
the table, after it had be.-n adversely re
ported from the ways and means com
mittee. Unless the difliculty of keeping a quo
rum present in the house, which is tie
coming greater every day, shall delay the
transaction of business congicss will ad
journ by the midd'e of next wsek, pro
bably a little earlier. But there are sev
eral memliersof the house who stop every
thing by raising the point of "no quo
uruai" everrjttme theyget the oppor
tunity. There is no exjiectation of do
ing anythiug else thau to fiuish up the
regular appropriation bills
Ex-Uov. Campbell, of Ohio, who is
considered by manv to stand a good
show for the Democratic nomination,
isiu Washington. He doesn't believe
there will be a split iu the natty at the
Chicago convention. Speaking aliout it, j
he said: "I feel quite certain that when
the Democrats meet in national conven
tion at Chicago thev will exercise good
enough wisdom and moderation to frame
a platform liberal enough and broad
enough for all memtiers of the party to
stand upon. I believe that conserva
tism and good sense will prevail, and
that differences of opinion will be sub
ordinated to party welfare. The silver
men appear to be in the majority and
will doubtless exercise the lights always
accorded a majority, but that is no rea
son lor imagining mat tne party win
split into fragments, as has been so cheer
fully predicted by a good many people
who don't in the least know what they
are talking about. The Democratic par
ty has survived too many ordeals to
dread shipwreck now, and it will con
tinue to exist and to win victories as it
has been doing from the beginning."
It would be amusing, if it were not
such a really serious matter, to see the
care with which the Republicans in con
gress are guarding their talk in Cuban
affairs. Such men as Senators Sher
man and Chandler, who were talking
nothing but ripsnortiug jingosim a few
weeks ago are now as mum as Quakers
on the subject. The reason is that some
how or other the Republicans have 'be
come convinced that President Cleve
land is getting ready to lieat congress at
its own game, by an early recognition of
the outright independence of Cuba.
Whether the president has any such in
tention is a matter about those who
could sjeak by authority will not talk.
It is probable that the Republican scare
grew out of President Cleveland saying
to Senator Sherman and two other mem
bers of the committee on foreign rela
tions, who called at the White House to
discuss Cuban aff iirs. that he thonght
recognition of the independence of Cuba
was preferable to recognizing the Cubans
us belligerents.
It is now openly conceded even by
such sturdy opponents of silver as sec
retaries Smith and Morton that a large
majority of the delegates to the Chicago
convention will lie silver men, but there
is much less talk of a Imlt by the oppo- j
nents of silver than there was when the
control of the convention was in doubt.
in fact, a numlier of the strangest advo
cates of the gold standard in congress
have voluntarily stated to silvtr Demo
crats their intention to support loyally
the ticket and platform of the- Chicago
convention. So far the Democrats in
congress are doing very little talking
about any particular candidate for presi
dent, and while most of them have a
personal preference there is nothing like
concentration of sentiment upon any
one man. . m.
