His gov ernment was at the mercy of the Jews, and the price paid for their as sistance was she revocation of the merciless edicts which Alexander HI. had uttered against their race. And now the United States bows before Judahs also. The treasury has not been compelled to pay so high a price for gold since the close of the war. It is not because the national credit is low, but because the Roth schilds and their associates control the coin that the government must have to redeem its notes and the rates of exchange which govern the shipment of specie from one continent to the other. This government has never been a customer of the Rothschilds before. It has always negotiated its loans through American agencies, and gen erally through national ban as. For many years the government kept a financial agent in London and the funding of the public debt into bonds at a lower rate of interest was largely conducted through him during the administrations of Grant and Hayes. It is asserted that during the war, when the treasury needed assistance more than it ever did, before or since, the Rothschilds refused to take Uuited States securities, although for near ly a century their chief business had been the negotiation of government loans. It is well understood among diplo matists that the peace of Europe has for several years practically depended upon the Rothschilds and their asso ciates, and many interesting tales are told around tire embassies at London, Berlin, Paris and St. Petersburg of the influences that have been exerted from time to time by those quiet and solemn-faced bankers to rool the pa triotic indignation and quench the military ardor of the soldiers and poli ticians. None of the great nations of Europe except France, or England perhaps, could go to war without bor rowing money, and none of them could get it except through the Roths childs and their associates. France is believed to be the only government in Europe that can promptly lloat a loan of any magnitude among its own peo ple. The greater part of the French national debt is now held by the peas ants throughout the provinces. The manner in which De Lesseps raised $300,000,000 to waste on the Panama canal shows the resources of the French people, and the indemnity ex acted from France by the German government in 1872 came from the stockings and the money chests of the peasants of the country. It is a curious faet that the 5,000,- 000,000 of francs which France paid in gold coin as the price of peace still lies untouched in the casemates of the old fortress of Standau, near Ber lin, which was built by the grand father of Frederick the Great more than two centuries ago. The Rothschilds are believed to control most of the prominent finan cial papers in Europe, and some of the influential political newspapers also, particularly in Vienna, Paris, Frankfort and London; and it is not an insignificant fact that the succes sor to Gladstone as prime minister of England is Lord Rothschild's son-in law. There is 110 legend or tale of fiction more remarkable than the history of the Rothschilds family, and the mar velous manner in which it lias won its way from one of the humblest hovels of Judengasse to an honorable station besides the thrones of Europe is almost incredible. During the last century, when the Jews were proscribed in Germany, the council of Frankfort selected a site outside the walls of that town and had houses built at the expense of the Jews which the latter were permitted to occupy, but they were not allowed to enter the city except by a certain gate and within certain hours. The men were compelled to wear a yellow badge upon their garments, and a cer tain pattern of hat, and the women were ordered to add blue stripes to their veils. They were required to walk in the roadway and leave the pavement for Christians. The num- Ibtr of marriage, was limited and en gaged couples had to wait their turn. Under these conditions, in the Ju dengasse, in the house nunihered 152- which is still standing, and at that time was known as the house of the | red shield (Rothschild), lived Amschel Moses, a dealer ill old coins, lie was distinguished from other Jews of the same name by calling him Amschel Mossese de Rothschild, and he after ward adopted tho latter as a sur name. When his turn came to marry tie took a wife from the family of one of the neighbors and they had a son whom they named Mayer Amschel and edu cated for the priesthood. Ilut the ology was not to his taste so he ob tained a position in the hanking house of a man named Oppehcim, in llan over, where he won an excellent repu tation, and by. frugal -habits was able to save a considerable portion of his earnings. In 1770 he married JudulaSchnappe, and returned to the old home in the Judengasse of Frankfort to carry on his father's business, which he en larged by dealing in bills of exchange and bullion and by loaning money. There are many interesting anec dotes of his early career, hut most of them are apocryphal. One is that the landgrave of llesse, during the French invasion, deposited 30,000,000 thalers with him for safe keeping, and al lowed him to use it for many years after as if it were his own. While this may not be true, it is a historical fact that Mayor Rothschild and the landgrave became intimate friends through a mutual love for old coins and antiquities, and that ultimately the banker was intrusted with the management of the financial affairs of the prince and was known as " the court Jew." It is also a historical fact that he undertook to supply the duke of Well ington with specie while the latter was at the head of the British army in Spain, something that no English banker was willing to attempt, and that he cleared on this transaction an annual commission of £130,000 for several years. His success in this respect induced the British govern ment to intrust him with the payment of enormous sudsidies to various con tinental princes, upon which he made large profit and a great reputation. Mayer Rothschild died in 1812, in his G7th year, and left five sons—An selm, Salomon, Nathan, James and Carl. Just before his death he culled them around him, after the manner of Jacob, and, bestowing hia blessing, en joined them to remain faithful to the law of Moses, to combine their tal ents and energies and to undertake nothing without the advice of their mother. The live sons established a peu tarchy. Anselm, the eldest, retained charge of the central house at Frank fort, and the others founded branches in Vienna, London, Taris and Naples, respectively. The mother, who was a very remarkable woman, lived until 1819, and died in the old house in the Judengasse at the age of 96. She was distinguished for her rare judgment in financial alTairs, for her influence over her sons, for the simplicity of her habits and for a conviction that the success of the family depended upon their retaining the old home from which it derived its name. Each of the sons became famous. Each became the prop of a throne, and by their united capital and abili ties, in obedience to the dying injunc tion of their father, they have been able to control almost uninterruptedly for three-quarters of a century the money markets of Europe. The Na ples house was abandoned after the death of the youngest son, but the establishments in London, Paris, Frankfort and Vienna have grown in wealth and influence. Although in dependent in a measure, they have always kept in close co-operation, and in matters of financial policy have acted as a unit. The families have largely inter married. The wives of more than half the Rothschilds have been their own cousins, but the well-known theory of heredity does not seem to have ap plied to their race. Their physical and mental vigor has not been im paired. According to the custom of the Jews the oldest member of tbe family has always been treated as the patriarch, and as one and another have passed away the veneration which was paid them has been offered to the next of age without ever a question. And they have been equal ly faithful to the law of Moses, and although Hannah, the daughter of Lord Rothschild of London, married Earl Roseberby, there was a contract that at least one-half of their children should be educated in the Jewish faith. Nearly all the family have at one time or another received decorations from the government they have served. In 1815 the Emperor Francis of Austria conferred upon them a heredi tary title of nobility and, in 1822 raised them to the rank of baron. In 1846 Queen Victoria conferred the baronetage upon the English branch of the family and Louis Philippe upon the French. It was at the chateau of Baron Al phonse Rothschild that the Emperor Louis Napoleon met the kasier of Germany to negotiate the treaty that I IVw to the Line. Let the Cliip>.s Loll AVTiei-o they A 1: ty. * " OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 10, 1095, terminated the Franco-German war, and the homes of the other members of the house have been for half a cen tury honored resorts of kings and princes. The government loans they have negotiated during the last seventy-five or a hundred years would aggregate billions of dollars. There is scarcely a government on earth with which they have not had financial transactions, the United States being the last to enter its name upon their books. It was at the chateau of Karon Al phonse ItothschiUl that the Emperor Ixiuis Napoleon met the Kaiser of Germany to negotiate the treaty that terminated the treaty of the Franco- German war, and the homes of the other members of the house have been for nearly half a century houorod re sorts of kings and princes. The government loans they have negotiated during the last seventy live or a hundred years would aggregate bil lions of dollars. There is scarcely a gov ernment on earth with which they have not had financial transactions, the United States being the last to enter its name upon their books. It was Sir Lionel Rothschild, for many years, and until 1870, the head of the London house, who made the fight for the recognition of his race in the political system of Great Britain, and his remarkable and persistent ef forts to secure the removal of the civil and political disabilities with which the Jews in England were hampered is historic. The law required every office-holder to swear allegiance to the established church, and although Gib bon and Charles Bradlatigh, both atheists who denied the existence of a God and repudiated the holy scrip tures, were allowed to take seats in parliament, Sir Lionel Rothschild was not, because he declined to take that oath. In 1847 he was first elected, and, being refused a seat, went before the people again and was re-elected by a majority of 7,ooo»votes. In 1852, in 1858 ami annually thereafter until 1858 Sir Lionel presented himself be fore the bar of the house of commons with a certificate of election, but on being offered the ordinary form of oath declined to be sworn except as a Jew upon the books of Moses. In 1858 a bill passed parliament omitting the offensive words from the oath, and Sir Lionel, after more than ten years* contest, was sworn on tlie old testament and allowed to take his seat. He continued to represent the city of London in the house of commons until his death, but never took a prominent part in politics, and is not known to have ever delivered a speceh. But his quiet, unobtrusive inlluence upon legislation, and particularly that relating to the finances of the united kingdom, was greater than was exer cised by any other member of parlia ment. He continued to manage the affaits of the firm up to the very eve of his death, which occurred without the slightest warning June 3, 1879. Since then the business lias been managed by his sons, who equal him in ability, and Queen Victoria, during the jubilee year, was pleased to raise Sir Nathaniel to the peerage, so that he was the first Jew that ever entered the house of lords. The Vienna house has exercised an influence and enjoyed a prominence fully equal to that of the London family, and has had the leading part in all the great financial operations in Austria during the last half-century. The same may be said of the Paris establishment, which began its career during the financial confusion which followed the overthrow of Napoleon, and has not only been the most prom inent financial agent of the govern ment, but has exercised a greater in fluence than any other firm upon commercial and industrial undertak ings. Baron James Rothschild was the father of the railway system of France, and his son, Baron Alphonse, has again and again come to the re lief of the government when it was in desperate extremities. Tlie business of the Paris firm has been more extensive during the last twenty or thirty years than that of any of the others and has embraced not only loan operations but commer cial undertakings of every description. It was through Baron Alphonse that the payment of the indemnity to Ger many was made at the close of the Franco-Prussian war, and, as I have already stated, it was under his roof that the German and French emper ors found neutral ground. The Rothschilds have always been noted for their philanthropy as well as for their riches, but at the same time have inherited from the founder of their house habjts of frugality and ex actness which have made them objects of ridicule among frivolous people. They tell a story of the late Sir Lionel which illustrates his economy as well as the tpiality of his wit. He rode from his otlice to his residence one day in a handsome cab, and, ar riving there, handed cabby a shilling, which was the lawful fare. The latter took the coin and with a sneer re marked : " Your son always gives me at least half a crown when I bring liim home." •* He can afford to," was the baro net's retort, " for he has a rich father, while I have not." STATE FISCAL AGENT. THERE'S MANY A SLIP ILLUS- TRATED The Sew York Security anil Trust Co. Vet the Agency While the A'u llonul Hank of !>ortl. America, Who Secured the f.eglslatlon (or It Del 4 »Soup.'' A Seattle correspondent writes to the New York Times, the following account of a deal which will be read with inter- est by our people: After a six weeks' visit to Washing ton, Cashier A. Trowbridge of the Na- .ional Bank of North America has re- turned to New York without having secured the chief object of his trip to Washington—the selection of his bank to be Hie fiscal agent of this Slate in New York Citv. Gov. McGraw, on April 10, appoint ed the New York Security and Trust Company to be the State's liscal agent for four years under the terms of the law passed by the recent Legis lature. The passage of the law was secured by Mr. Trowbridge and his friends, as was recently outlined in the New York Times. In his cfiort to secure the appoint meat, Mr. Trowbridge had the back ing, it is claimed, of every prominent bank except two in the State, and the indorsements of the Mayors, as well as of many business men, other city offi cials, and county officials of Seattle, Tacoma and Spokane. These banks and these officials are inclined to resent the course of the Governor in refusing to listen to them, and many declare that his ac tion will be made to tell against him a year from next January, when the Governor will be a candidate for United States Senator, to succeed Watson C. Squire. These men possess a very wide inlluence, but what is of more importance, is the fact that a number of hold-over Senators were among the backers of Mr. Trowbridge, and are now exceedingly displeased with the result. The Legislature adjourned March 14, and Mr. Trowbridge was kept here and in Tacoma for three weeks after the Governor had signed the bill, awaiting the Executive's pleasure as to making the appointment. At last, by appointment with the Governor, he went to Olympia April 10, and was then told by his Excellency that the New York Security and Trust Com pany hail luipn appointed Cashier Trowbridge was greatly sur prised, as there had been no doubt up to that lime of the success of his mis sion. The Governor told him his in dorsements hail been considered, but he felt his own personal preferences were entitled to consideration in mak ing this Slate appointment. For that reason the other company had been appointed. Uov. McGraw said also that the New York Security and Trust Com pany had agreed to purchase $1,000,- 000 of State Capitol warrants, and the bankers here believe that this promise was what decided the matter. Gov. McGraw is President of the First National Dank of Seattle. A certain Seattle contracting firm is sup posed to be making heroic efforts to secure the seven-hundred-and-fifty thousand-dollar State Capitol contract soon to be let. Before bidding, how ever, it must make arrangements to float the warrants by which it will be paid. The inference which bankers draw is that the Seattle contracting firm and Gov. McGraw's bank have ar ranged to float the warrants. This would give the Seattle firm the big contract, the Governor's bank would probably handle the warrants and money paid for them, and the New York company, which agrees to take the warrants, is rewarded by being ap pointed fiscal agent. It is considered a perfectly legitimate business ar rangement, and the Governor's friends who indorsed Mr. Trowbridge say that the Governor was prompted largely by his desire to have the con struction of the new State Capitol go forward. The Capitol is to cost sl,- 000,000, and was designed by architect Ernest Flagg of New York. In the last year there has been a great deal of talk to the effect that the building could not be constructed ac cording to the plans for that sum. The foundation contracts already let aggre gate |200,000. To guard against a possible overexpenditure the Legisla ture, a month ago, enacted a law that the contract for the remainder of the work shall not exceed $750,000. The contractors will be paid in warrants drawn on the Capitol Fund. These figures, it will he seen, are wrong. The bill appropriates $9110,000; the expen ditures so fa-- being only $75,( X). These facts explain the necessity for the contractors or the State to ar range to dispose of the warrants be fore the contract is let. The two hankers who alone are said to have urged the appointment of the Security and Trust Company are Les ter Turner, cashier of Governor Mc- Graw's bank here, and A. It. Nicol, cashier of the Union Trust and Sav ings hank of Tacoma, the Tacoma correspondent of the Security and Trust Company. Mr. Turner is said to have told his business associate, the Governor, that this appointment would be the only thing he would ask of the present State administration. I The bankers, so far as known, have j nothing against the successful com j panv, but simply believe that Mr. Trowbridge should he rewarded for his fair and honest tight. They say that the hank of North America would have secured its chief benefit from the extra deposits received had it been made fiscal agent. The trust com pany cannot of itself receive this benefit, as trust companies in New York are not allowed to receive de posits. It will be the part of the fiscal agent to transact business for ever eounty, city and school district in this .State having outstanding bonds pay able in New York. E. N. Gibbs. Treasurer of the New- York Life Insurance Company and a Director of the Security and Trust Company, cabled Gov. McGraw from Spain just before the appointment that he (Mr. Gibbs) had had the promise of the appointment by him two years ago, and he expected the promise would now he kept. N. W. Harris & Co. had a bill intro duced in the Legislature two years ago providing for a fiscal agent in New York, but it was finally killed. A Spokane Senator endeavored to get the Fiscal Agency bill amended so as to provide that the company ap pointed must have a capital of at least $1,000,000. This would have excluded the Bank of North America. During the last hours of the session, Mr. Trowbridge's friends quietly blocked this scheme by having the bill amend ed to read that the " capital and surplus" must be $1,000,000. After reading the article of four weeks ago in The New York Times, the President of the Bank of North America wrote Cashier Trowbridge, at Tacoma, congratulating him upon his success with the Legislature and adding that Mr. Piatt would need his service on his return to New Y'ork in the fight against Mayor Strong. A COMPOSITE DOLLAR A Detroit Paper's Plan for tbc Solu tion of the Coinage Question. The Detroit Tribune (Rep.) pub lishes an editorial leader which de clares in favor of the solution of the present monoy question by the issu ance of a new dollar, to be composed of proportional parts of gold and sil ver. The article quotes the national platforms of 1888 and 1802 in favor of bimetallism, and points out the dangers of a practical silver monomet allism through the throwing open of ine mints to the unlimtted coinage. It calls attention to the difficulties and delays which would attend the ne gotiations of an international compact and questions the successful mainten tenance of a parity between gold and silver by that means in any event. It calls upon the party to fulfill its plat •form pledges by formulating, without delay, a practicable scheme for bimet allism, and especially in view of the threatened disintegration of parties and the drawing of new party lines, with gold monometallism on one side and silver monometallism on the other. Continning, the Tribune advo cates the composite dollar as a measure easiest to effect and with the least disturbance to business of any plan suggested. It proposes: " That all existing coinage laws be repealed and that there be enacted a law creating a new American dollar, which should become the standard coin of the nation; this dollar to be composed of 200 1-4 grains of standard silver and 12 9-10 grains of standard gold, fused together and struck into a handsome coin about the size of the present half-dollar. The coin would be of absolutely stable value, for in caoo of disparity at any time in the commercial value oi silver, what was lost by the depreciation of ono metal would be made up by the ex.-qiy corresponding appreciation of the other." As to the question whether the pro posed dollar would be suitable for ex port, the Tribune replies: "It would not be necessary to ex port the coin while uncoined gold could be secured, which would be just as available. If at any time it became necessary to separate the gold from the silver, it could be done at the United States mint at a cost of less than 1 per cent. This very cost would be a precaution against the ex port of coin while uncoined bullion was attainable." a Practical Dream. The Caribou Republican tells of a man who seems to have literally dreamed himself into a fortune. One night, the past winter, a member of a lumber crew at work in the woods north of Fort Kent, dreamed that he was using a saw, the teeth of which were of a peculiar shape. The dream made such an impression on him that as soon as possible he piocured a saw and had the teeth cut like those seen in his dream. To the great surprise of the dreamer, as well as those who have since seen it in operation, the saw is of great practical value and it is asserted that in the same length of li«'e one man can saw more wood with it than can three men using ordinary saws. One of Fort Kent's wealthy citizens has interested himself in this new inven tion and is said to be procuring a patent for the «nventor and himself, with the expectation of placing the saws on the market as soon as possi ble. THE STATE PRESS ASSOCIATION Address by KxeriitlveCoiiiiiilltee An nouncing ilie Convention. The following address has been is sued by the Washington State Tress Association: " To the Press of the State of Wash ington : At a meeting of the execu tive committee of the Washington Press Association, held at Seattle on the lltli day of April, ISUS, it was de cided to hold the next annual meeting of that organization at Everett, on the Gtli, 7th and Bth days of next August. "It is particularly desirable at this time, when business of all kinds is dull and it becomes necessary for craftsmen to unite their endeavors for the common welfare, that a full at tendance should be had, and that every effort be made to secure the membership of those who have not yet joined the association. The want of a thorough organization was manifested in the fate of the several measures submitted by authority of the associa tion to the late Legislature. While many of our law-makers expressed themselves in accord with the several propositions, they found very few ex pressions on the part of the press of the State which indicated that they were really desired, or were more than the wish of a self-empowered commit tee representing but a small portion of the newspaper men of the State. It was not surprising, under this condi tion, that nothing was accomplished. " What the Washington Press Asso ciation wants to accomplish at its next meeting, is to determine just what is needed in the shape of legisla tion, or rather to give the present ex cellent suggestions the force which numbers alford, and to unite upon the business propositions, which will en able newspapers to he published at a profit. It is quite evident that many publishers have made but little efTort to secure a compensation for services that is proportionate to their value; especially in fixing the rates of legal and ' foreign' advertising; and an in terchange of opinions, if nothing more, may he productive of some ben efit. "It is hoped that every newspaper in the State of Washington will he represented at Everett this year. The citizens of that wonderfully enterpris ing city extend a royal welcome. Let us make the occasion one long to be remembered by them and ourselves. Fraternally yours, " JOIIJI MILLKU MIKPIIY, " President. " WIM. A. STEEL, Secretary." Skeleton In Every Closet It is said that the expression, " There is a skeleton in every closet," arose from the following incident: A young Italian student, finding that he was dying, fearing to break the news to his mother, adopted the following device: He informed her that he was ill, and it had been foretold lie would not re cover until he had worn a shirt made hy a woman who had no trouble. The widow soon discovered that it was no easy task to find such a person, but at length was referred to a lady who seemed surrounded with every com fort and happiness, and possessing a bushand who seemed devoted to her. The widow made known her request and for an answer was shown a closet, where a skeleton hung suspended from a beam. She was told it was the remains of the lady's former lover, who, from motives of jealously, had been slain by her husband, and that he compelled her to visit it every day. The widow concluded that no one was without trouble, that " there was a skeleton in ever closet," and became reconciled to the approaching loss of her son. ■ »♦ ♦ i Two of a Kind. At Toledo a sharp looking young m&n boarded the Detroit-hound train, ami after looking over the passengers in one of the coaches he took a seat be side a traveler w?th a face as honest as a four-dollar bill. Just as the train was about to start the young man sud denly said: " My friend, I am on My way lo De _ troit to see my mother die." " Eli! that's too bad." " I haven't got any money with but I'll give you my watcli for security if you'll lend me S"2O until we reach Detroit." " Let's see the ticker." The watch was a galvanized affair,! worth about fifty cents per pound. The man with the four-dollar face examined it, and put it in his pocket. Then he slowly drew a S2O bill from his vest pocket and handed it over to the young man. The latter simply glanced at it and then the two smiled. Then they I snook hands. Then the watch and the bill changed back. The watch was a dead swindle and the bill a counterfeit and both belonged to the " profesh." ■tomaiire and Hu«lne««.

You call tlie at tention of farmers and wage earners to the fact that raising prices, while en abling them to sell their products and labor at higher prices, will also cause them to pay equally more for what they purchase, but you neglect to say that your statement is net applicable to debts. With the prices coming down regularly and steadily since the demonetization of silver, our mer chants, manufacturers and the people generally have been doing business on a falling market, so that the lime in tervening between the purchase of their merchandise or raw material and placing it mouths after on the market lias removed the margin they would have otherwise made. This shrinkage in values, added to the ordi nary risk and expense of business, has led to an ever increasing volume of debt, to a money lending period until it has increased it, all told, public and private, to about $4,000,000,000, or two-thirds of the total value of all the property in the United States. Money and these debts payable in money have been steadily increasing in exchangeable value with the prop erty of the people. A debt for SI,OOO that 1,000 bushels of wheat would have paid ten years 'ago, now requires the farmer to give up 2,000 bushels of wheat in exchange for these dollars with which to pay the same debt. The owners of products must now give lip twice as much property to pay taxes as iu 18711. The taxes have increased as expressed in dollars and have doubled and quadrupled as measured in the property the people surrender with which to pay it since 1873. The influences of creditors have dominated your administration and you insist upon such a currency as they have established as a sound cur rency. It means the confiscation of property of the people by the sale of property under mortgages, judgments and executions. It means that fixed incomes will wipe out the interests of the stockholders in our cities and in the large corporations. When you call the attention of the farmer and wage-earner to the fact that rising prices will make him pay more for what he buys, you should at the same time call his attention to the fact that it would enable him to pay his debts, free him from a bondage in which he has been unjustly placed and again make him the owner of a home and a free and independent citizen. We submit that our mints again be thrown open to silver and our stock of primary money increased thereby. The gentlemen who visited and peti tioned you represent ouly one class of our people. We respectfully submit that it was the intention of Hie foun ders of this government that it was safer that all the people should do the thinking for it than that any one class should do it for them. We agree with you that it is time for the people to reason together and to that end we respectfully ask that you make it pos sible for them to get printed copies of the act of 1792, on which our fore fathers based our financial system, aud all'subsequent thereto, as well as all statutes and other information of an olficial nature at Washington bear ing vu—aon. ReeDPctfniij*. W. H. HARNEY, Chairman of the Bimetallic r.xecu tive Committee. Unique Advertising. Now York News. A tale is told of Robert Bonner and of his belief in advertising. One day lit engaged a whole page of a newspa per ami repeated a two line advertise meut upon it over and over again. It must have been repeated 5,000 times upon the page in the smallest type. " Why do you waste your money, Robert?" asked a friend. " I noticed that same line so often. Would not half a page have answered your pur pose?" " Half a page would never have caused you to ask the question," re plied Mr. Bonner. "At least five people will ask that to every line, was the way I figured it." TIIK police have unearthed a plan, at l'ort Townaend, to Hood the Sound country with counterfeit money. The principal conspirator is said to have I teen Jack Miller, a United States cus toms inspector, who, before any ar rests could be made, tendered his res ignation and left the United .States.
