HIT H A MTSSl'lM AN U WITHOUT A ar siLVEa at a batio or i i-u i SILVER En 1834. iVTheaevor a gold standard man de- nrm u t v m n. in imujm tbluu ' u feas been taveatigating the money Ques tion, to comes forward with .the state- meat hst silver, was demonetized in .1834. . ,. : ; Well, itha etaitenwtit, foy whomsoever tn&de, is a fraud, and has nothing whatever to go upon, die latest au thor of the statement ds John Sher nan, in a speech delivered at Colum- fus, Ohio, on the ISth of August. He made the following remarks: "The avowed purpose of the passage Of he law of 1834 was to make gold the staadaird. This was declared by the commtotee of he house of repre- eeniaiUvea Who (had charge of the bill, titfho said an their report: The com- trMeB think that the desideratum In me monetary sysoem. is a stanuaru oi Uniiforan value; they oanmot ascertain that both metals have ever circulated simultaneously, ooneartnily and in discriminately In any country where there are banks or money dealers, and tfotsy en-tieribai-n -the conviction that the sarest approach to on invariable Btanaaiti as its eataDimsnment an one natal, which metal shall compose ex- wats." IWhat John Sherman supposed, when lie made tine foregoing quotation from fine committee's report, was that none of his audience would take the trouble to investigate the facts. And he was floubtlesa right. Few men care to take -the trouble to investigate for them eelves, being content to take itheiir facts jjeconid hand. Buit tihe Atlanta Con- attention took a day off, -looked the tneWer up and finds that on the very page of -the committee's report from whlchl itlhe areh falsifier quotes Is to be found the following paragraph, which dhows what the committee meant by fts referenoe to "one metal" as the sole standard: ; '? ''Silver Is ithe ancient currency of the fonited States; the metal in which the toainay ua't is exhibited, the money eanerolly .used to foreign commerce, And (sluai. description of the . precious metals An the distribution of which we exeredae an extensive . agency. (The commit bee, upon due consideration of all attendant circumstances, are of Opinion (aha the standard of value ought to (be legally and exclusively, as it is practically, regulated in silver!)" Thus it seems that the misrepre sentation wifb which John Sherman prefaced his quotation Is a monu mental one, deliberately concocted for the purpose of deceiving the people tie was addressing. The committee, instead of trying to enact the gold standard, were doing their best to enact the silver standard! . The effort to reject gold failed, and congress at tempted to secure the concurrent use of boHh metals, as may be seen by a referenoe to Benton's speeches.. Not only this, but by the act of March. 3, 1843, the silver dollars of Mexico, Peru and Bolivia were made legal tender at their nominal value, and the French 5Hfranc piece was made a legal tender for 93 cents. And yet Jdhn Sherman and those who train with him, or who are de ceived by him, say that tine American silver dollar, was demonetized in 1834! MONEY AND PRICES. IThlis ds the worldly wisdom of the New York 'World: Does any sensible farmer really sup- oose innat iune marsecs oi iuie which take our surplus will permit our congress and president to fix and main tain prices by law? is any iarmer so simple as actually to think that the price of what he ihas to sen can De raised by a trick of legislation without increasing in like ratio what he has to biiv? To criticise the above, he best way I is to begin at the bottom and go back ward. The World asks if any farmer thinks itlbait the price of wheat he has to sell can be raised by a trick of leg islation without increasing in like ratio what he has to buy. Probably not, but the farmer, if be makes any money, has to sell more than he buys, and the more he gets for what he has to sell the more profit' there -is. The farmer that raises $1,000 worth of stuff for the market, under normal conditions, does not buy $1,000 worth of products during the year. The old rule used to be tihat if he could make with his capital and work 10 or 12 per cent on his investment, he was doing very well. Now, if he could make 12 per cent on $2,000 instead of $1,000 he would foe ($120 ahead by the change. As to the first question about the markets of the world taking our sur plus and about their interfering with congress and the president's fixing and maintaining prices by law, that is bunglingly put- There is only one ar ticle in the world that our Nation could fix a value on and maintain it. That is silver, and the reason it can do that lis because silver can only be obtained in very limited quantities. It is because, with) all the work of the world np to date, not enough of silver and gold 'have .been produced to meet and fill the world's need for money. Then there is another feature about it. The amount of primary, ultimate money in the world is the barometer that measures the world's values. The nations cannot interfere with that. It Ss an inviolable, immutable law, and if our country had but the courage audi 'the patriotism to fully re store silver, tone result would have to be that "the nations of the world" that buy our surplus would have to give an increased price for it. Every ballot cast for Palmer and Buckner is a vote wasted. There are not many men who will take the trou ble of going to tflie polls for the doubt ful pleasure of throwing their votes away. ' Sometime the civilized, feeling peo ple of England, made sick by the daily dallying of ministers and ambassadors and the red tape of diplomacy, will simply get up and go to Turkey and throw he sultan into the Hellespont. Now Bismarck will be branded as an "anarchist." a "lunatic" and a "silver crank" by Uhe goldbug press of London and America. It looks as if Eddie IWolcott might 'have to spare a little of his time from carrying Colorado for McKinley to look after his own fences. The Yale students wan ted an ignor ant westerner like Mr. Bryan to see something of 'the refinement and cul ture of lube east. Both presidential candidates are in dustriously quoting Abraham Lincoln to prove their side. John Boyd Thaoher is a truly won derful specimen of the straddle-bug. AJter all, it would have been better if he hod remained Hill the Still. President Diaz says Mexico i3 pros perous, and he ought to know. RBPU3U1CAN FOR FORTY YEARS. But in Favor of Silver at the Ratio of 16 to 1. To itihe Editor of The Republican: A few days ago I received a letter from a prominent Republican of Phoe nix felling me what a fine body of men there was ibhati composed the county convention and urging me to do my best in support of the Republican ticket and hoping to see a certain nom inee lead itihe ticket here at Gila Bend. Now I wish to say I have been a full fledged Republican for forty years. In 1856 I climbed a seventy-five foot Fre mont and Dayton flag-pole with the broken rope in imy teeth ,and put it through the sheave, illben came down and rehoisted 'the flag of liberty. I have been doing my best to hold up tha flag of liberty ever since.

I am no goldbug. My vote will support the Republican ticket, tout no goldbug need apply. I am much pleased to see that The Republican still stands by silver at 16 to 1 regardless of 'the pottage seekers of the county and territorial conven tions. If it did not I should have but little use for it of ter the present year's subscription; and in so saying I be lieve 1 speak 'the sentiment of a vast majority of the voters of all parties in' Arizona. " - ? . I have informed myself somewhat on the silver question, and find that men of twentyrfive or thirty years' ex perience m mining both -gold and silver in several states and territories in the United States say it costs as much on an average to produce sixteen ounces of silver as it does to produce one ounce of gold. If that is the case why Should -t not be coined at 16 1 to 1? Though ttoer'may have been nine teen ounces of stiver -produced to one ounce of gold ii the final summing up for the past 5E0 years these metals are not like potatoes and onions that have to be disposed of and used up in their season. Silver and gold will keep, and should foe worth the cost of production. A prominent Democrat in the east said soon after the Chicago conven vention that he "was called on. to sup port Mr. Bryan and protect silver or support Mr. McKinley and protect everything else except silver." I say support Mr. Bryan and protect silver, or rather, give stiver the place where it belongs in the measure of value throughout the world and it will be the foundation of 'protection to every other American production requiring protection. k (While the American continent has produced one-third of the gold and five-sixths of the silver of the total weight of the precious metals consti tuting tthe metallic wealth of the world, or two-thirds in coined value, it now has about one-fifth of 'the world's coin in circulation. i- : In 1873 and at Other times when silver has been at a premium, what did the goldbugs think when a twenty dol lar gold piece was not worth twenty American silver dollars? Ah! Echo answers what? It seems strange that in the begin ning of the republic with only three million people, it established its own com independent of the world, that now with over seventy millions of in telligent and enterprising people with observation and experience of over a hundred years, the United States can not establish and maintain its own coin watih the same Independence as in She beginning. . 16 to 1 goes.

A terse and clever characterization was that by which Berang-er, the poet, summed up Victor Hutro's relation to j the great republican spirit of France. Hugo, although it is said that he was not a republican at the very beginning of his career, became a most enthusiastic and outspoken one. He represented the pic torial, dramatic side of popular feelin:? and became so picturesrjue a figure in French politics that he could not have failed to serve as a popular idol. Beranger, who was a republican of the simplest type, notwithstanding his share in establishing Louis Philippe on the throne, denied the poet's attitude in one line. One day, says the Contemporary Re view, shortly after the revolution which overtoppled that throne, an acquaint ance of Beranger met him coming out of the ralais-Bourbpn. "I shall feel obliged," said the poet, "if you will see me home, for I do not. feel at all well. Those violent scenesinsiile there are not to my taste. I am not at all well," he continued, with a wistful smile; "I have been accused of having held the plank over which Louis Philippe went to the Tulleries. I wish I could be the bridge across the Channel on which he would return. Certainly I would have liked a republic, but not such as we are having in there." He pointed to the home of the Con stituent assembly. "You ought to be pleased," said his friend. "Victor Hugo is in the seine regiment with you." "Victor Hugo is not in the regiment," was the quiet reply. "He is in the band." ..' Nest of Clock Springs. In the Museum of Natural History at Soleure, in Switzerland, there is a bird's nest made entirely of steel. There are a number of clock-making1 shops at Soleure, and in the yards of these there are often found lying disused or broken springs of clocks. One day a clock maker noticed in a tree in his yard a bird's nest of peculiar appearance. Ex amining it, he found that a pair of wag tails had built a nest entirely of clock springs. It was more than four inches across, and perfectly comfortable for the birds. After the feathered archi tects had reared their brood, the nest was taken to the museum, whrre it is preserved as a striking illustration of the; skill of birds in turning their sur loundings to advantage in building their nests.

The kidneys, called upon for" double service, quickly become diseased, for they are very delicate organs. These are conditions which, if neglected, may rapidly become fatal.
