of the treasury. Charles Foster, had
made preparation for replenishing it
by an issue of bonds before the end of
the Harrison administration.
Thereupon the Tribune climbed up
among the thunder caps that veil the
summit of the high mount of patriot
ism and proclaimed that such questions
could only have been asked by "an ex
rebel or copperhead or the son of one."
It declares that the war debt was whol
ly the work of southern secessionists
and northern copperheads, the former
of whom plunged the country into war,
while the latter prolonged it and in
creased its cost
The Chronicle was not inquiring who
struck Billy Patterson and it has no
apology to make for either secession
ists or copperheads. It was inquiring
who increased the debt and impaired
the public credit by pursuing a bad
financial policy, and whether the repub
licans had wrought such wonders as
they claimed by their policy of "pro
tection and reciprocity."
It was necessary to borrow much
money to meet the cost of the war for
the preservation of the union. For that
very reason it was necessary to pursue
a course with respect to the currency
wise enough and conservative enough
to inspire confidence in the minds of
people who had money to lend. But
this is exactly what the republican
party did not do. It pursued a course
calculated to destroy confidence, im
pair the public credit and vastly In
crease the final cost of the war.
Contrary to the adrlce of the ablest
financiers, a republican congress au
thorized the Issue of $150,000,000 of
government circulating notes and made
them legal tender. Five months later
it authorized another issue of the same
amount The depreciation which would
have resulted naturally from such enor
mous Issues was checked by a provision
of the law directing the secretary to
give 6 per cent coin bonds in exchange
for the noe upon demand of holders of
the latter. But by an act passed less
than thirteen months after the first
issue of these notes was authorized this
promise to give bonds for the notes was
At the same time another $150,000,000
of 'notes was authorized. As a conse
quence of this enormous expansion ac
companying repudiation of the original
contract the notes greatly depreciated.
As It was necessary to sell bonds at par
in these notes in order to keep them
from becoming entirely worthless, the
bonds were In reality sold far below
par, the average price probably not ex
ceeding two-thirds of their face. Thus
the whole amount of the bonded debt
came to be nearly or quite one-half
greater than it would have been but
for the depreciation of the currency
due to inflation and repudiation.
This degradation of the currency and
Increase in the Interest-bearing debt
was not the work of secessionists or
copperheads. It was republican finan
cial policy and the necessary conse
quences thereof. Neither secessionists
nor copperheads prevented the renewal
of the promise to give bonds for green
backs and the fulfillment of the promise
when renewed. It was not necessary
to prolong the suspension nearly four
teen years after the close of the war.
All this was republican policy. The re
sult was a disastrous panic in 1873 and
a pretty complete demoralization of the
public mind on the subject of the currency.
After that we had the republican sil
ver legislation of 1878 and 1890, result
ing in 1893 in another widespread and
disastrous panic And ever since that
event the republican firebugs, though
ingntenea at nrst Into a half admission
of the truth, have been accusing the
democratic firemen of Incendiarism. It
is an old trick of theirs. It is at once
characteristic and indecent of the Tri
bune, which supported the vicious
greenback policy of the war and which
was conspicuous among the silver in
cendiaries in 1878, to scream "copper
head!" at anyone who ventures to crit
icise the wretched financial policy of
the republican party and to recall its
unredeemed .pledges of tariff reform.
The organ of the perfidious panic party
can find no better argument
San Francisco, while the rate from New
York to San Francisco Is ?S a ton. From
Liverpool to Galveston the rate is $1.75
a ton and it Is $3.80 a ton from New
York to Galveston. It would cost but
little more for the Illinois Steel Com
pany to ship Its products from New
York to Liverpool and thence back to
American ports than it costs to ship di
rect from New York to other American
ports. The reason is that the coast
wise commerce Is protected by the mo
nopoly tariff. Mr. Gates demands that
the tariff monopoly on American com
merce shall be abolished, that by taking
advantage of low freight he can under
sell English steel and iron in all the
markets. The Illinois Steel Company Is
protected by enormous duties on all Its
products. American purchasers of .steel
and iron manufacturers are compelled
to pay the protected monopoly prices
that are sustained by a tariff of from 30
to 0 per cent Every pound of steel
and iron sold in the United States pays
a profit proportionate to the amount of
duty levied to protect the industry from
foreign competition. At the same time
this corporation is selling steel railroad
rails and other steel and iron products
in foreign markets at prices which com
pete with those of English manufactur
ers. They can outbid their foreign ri-

William P. St John Is president of
the Mercantile Bank of New York.
Three years ago he began to study the
financial question from an unselfish
standpoint Now he is crazy, as the
Chicago Tribune (owned in England)
would say. He has drawn up a plat
form for free coinage, which is as fol

Steady Increase In Exports.
New York Herald: Oflicial data
shows that during March last the value
of our manufactured exports reached
the unprecedented total of $10,125,785,
or 25.85 per cent of the total exports.
The phenomenal increase of manufac
tured exports began In 1895, and dur
ing last year they exceeded $200,000,
000. In March the flood of such ex
ports was at the rate of $229,500,000
per annum. The striking increase,
which began in 1895, has not been
spasmodic, but has been steadily aug
mented. The bureau of statistics now
reports that for the nine months end
ing with March last the manufactured
exports amounted to $163,187,926 and
were 24.57 per cent of our gross ex
ports. The great significance of these
figures can best be seen by noting that
in no year before 1895, when the Wil
son tariff went fully into effect, had the
exports of our manufactures reached a
total of $184,000,000.
Farty Plans Contrasted.
New York Journal: The plan of
democrats Is to call a convention to
agree on a platform, and then select a
statesman to illustrate, and, if elected,
to assert the principles of that plat
form. The plan of the republicans is
to get the nomination, by unfair means
if necessary, and then concoct a plat
form with delusive promises to every
faction from which they hope to get
votes. This differentiation explains
why one party Is noisy, while the other
party is simply waiting for the con
vention at Chicago to nominate thfe
candidate who will, if fairness and
reason triumph, be the next president
of these United States.
Monopolists Sighting Each Other.
Chicago Chronicle: A few days ago
John W. Gates, president of the Illinois
Steel Company, appeared before the
Ways and Means Committee of the
House and made as argument la favor
of repealing the ktws for the protection
of shipping In the coastwise ocean trade.
Under present laws all shipments from
one United States port te another mast
fee In American vessels. Of coarse their
charges for freight are alga. They have
a monopoly or tne coastwise traSc. J boasting.
Reed Naturally Desires Retirement.
New York Journal: The republican
newspapers are beginning to protest
against the political retirement of
Speaker Reed, declaring him to be a
man who is too able and too big for
them to lose. This sort of talk comes
rather late in the day. The humiliation
Reed has received at the hands of his
party very naturally leads him to seek
retirement No man with self-respect
can view the Republican situation with
complacency. When a party sets the
barrel above the brain and puts aside
men like Reed and Allison for men like
McKinley It must expect Important
retirements from its leadership as well
as from its ranks.
An Issue Welcomed by Democrats.
Atlanta Journal: Twice with Mc
Klnleylsm as the issue has the demo
cratic party swept the country. Mc
Klnley's name is synonymous with all
that Is unrighteous in'federal taxation;
it stands for a record of weakness and
vacillation in regard to the federal
finances and a most hopeless weakness
In regard to his own private business
affairs. It is time for faint-hearted
democrats to pluck up courage.
Exports Sine MeKlnleyUm Died.
Pittsburg Post: For one of the most
prosperous years of the McKinley
period the proportion of oar exports of
manufactures was only 15 per cent of
the total exports. In the calendar year
1885 we exported $46,000,000 more of
manufactures than we did In the
"crack" year of the McKinley law.

terest-bearing bonds of the United
States, the interest accruing on the
bonds to inure to the United States
pending their re-exchange for the coin

when returned shall be cancelled; pro

sum of coin certificates and silver certi

This (a) is free coinage at 16 to 1, the
convenient coin certificate (b) to take
the place of gold certificates, silver cer

safeguard (c) would provide for a tem
porary increase of $300,000,000 of paper
money against the silver on hand in the
treasury April 1st
Second. The threatened competition
with our southern cotton mills of those
of China and Japan, the increasing im
portations of long stapled Egyptian in
competition with our Sea Island cot
ton, and the ill effects of the abrogation
of the tariff on woolen manufactures,
combine to evidence the fact that the
time has not arrived to abandon an
adequate protective tariff system in
vain pursuit of the phantom of free
The effect of the wool schedule of the
Wilson bill has been to enrich the
European manufacturer at the expense
of our domestic manufacturer, and en
large the European market for foreign
wools while lessening our home market
for our domestic wools, occasioning an
advance of two cents a pound for Port
Phillip (Australian) wool in London,
while unwashed Ohio wool has declined
11 cents a pound in Boston and New
York; and producing such a depression
of our home manufacturers as has
caused a reduction in wages of opera
tives and threatens to throw this branch
of domestic labor out of all employ
ment We are, therefore, opposed to opening
our home markets of seventy millions
of consumers to the foreigner on any
pretense of procuring thereby a foreign
market for the productions of the Unit
ed States. But we shall exact of our
manufacturers that they accord to lab
or a liberal and more continuously cer
tain share of the protection accorded
them; and that the tariff devised shall
afford also a protection to the farmer
and the planter, and provide sufficient
revenues for the necessary expendi
tures of government
This second demand meets the re
quirement of the great mass of Ameri
can labor, to whom McKinley threatens
become the embodiment of the protec
tive tariff. While my reports from all
sections, including the new south, are
overwhelmingly in favor of protection,
comparatively few manufacturers favor
the restoration of the McKinley tariff.
Third. We demand the application
of the principle defined as the initiative
and referendum, to all national legisla
tion which involves any radical change
ln public policy.
A test of this principle, thus restrict
ed to any radical change ln public
policy, seems warranted by the practice
of Switzerland. The test may commend
a broadening of the restriction, if found
practicable. "Should the great trunk
lines of railway become a possession of
the government?" would seem to be
such a radical change In public policy
as might wisely be referred to the peo
ple. Fourth. We condemn Clevelandlsm
utterly; that debauching of legislators
with patronage to achieve legislation
opposea to tne win or the people Is a
vicious prostitution of executive in
fluence, which we shall denounce as bit
terly if It be the practice of an executive
elected as a republican as when the
practice of one elected as a democrat
If all who have become distrustful of
old parties and tired of boss rule win
unite ln these demands and nominate
on this platform, some raaa t such
achievements as commend htm te the
conservative elemest of th ..,
and who is not a seeker after the r&!
ferment he can be elected In the ap-
ef the United State.
If the democratic platform demands
the reopening of the mints to silver, as
now seems likely, all the powers of the
democratic (?) admlnistraton will be
used to compass the defeat of the dem
ocratic candidate. The prosperity to
accrue to the people under the adoption
of that policy would put In shameful
contrast the current results of the ad
If the republican platform demands,
unequivocally, the re-opening of the
mints to silver the democratic platform
will necessarily demand the same, and
the contest will be narrowed thereby to
a protective tariff against free trade.
WILLIAM P. ST. JOHN.
Still no revival and more excuses.
Dun's Review of Trade of the 16th says:
"It Is now the middle of May, too late
for business to change matorially until
the prospects of coming crops are as
sured, and definite shape has been given
to the presidential contest by the con-
vnnMnns. Until the future Is more
clear, there will be prudent disinclina
tion to produce much beyond orders,
or to order beyond Immediate and cer
tain needs. If this waiting spirit pre
vails two months longer, it will crowd
into the last half of the year an enor
mous business if the outlook is good.
For the present there Is less business, on
the whole, than a year ago, though in
some" branches more, and the delay fol
lowing months of depression Is to many
trying and the cause of uumerous failures."
Ever since the repeal of the "Sherman
law" the gold men have had prosperity
looming up ahead; but there was al
ways some little thing ln the way.
First, we must have a bond Issue to re
plenish the gold reserve and "restore
confidence." Then it was found that
the bond issue had Itself created some
stringency which, however, would soon
pass away Just aa soon as the gold
could bo drawn out of tho treasury
again. Then another bond Issue was
required to give more "confidence."
Then more stringency and then more
bonds. Sometimes the weather was bad;
sometimes It was too fine. For the last
month or two the trouble has been
"under consumption" and "lack of de
mand for goods." Now the lack of de
mand continues, the season is too far
advanced, and no material improve
ment can be looked for jntil after the
conventions have been neld and crop
conditions assured. It will be more
than two months before nil of the con
ventions shall have been held, and we
can safely rely upon the ingenuity of
the trade experts to find a small volume
of excuses by that time. Less business
upon the whole than there was a year
ago, -"with "good times coming" con
stantly ringing ln our ears, is a condi
tion that should open people's eyes.

Got. Altceld at the Auditorium.
The Chicago Tribune speaking of the
assemblage that greeted Governor Alt-
geld at the Auditorium last Saturday j
evening says: "The audience for the
most part was not of the sort usually
seen at the Auditorium." That Is true.
There were no low-necked dresses and 1
costly opera robes in sight. The boxes I
were not filled with bankere, and the i
auditorium proper with rich merchants
posing as "workingmen" and repre
sentatives of labor. But,, as predicted
last week, the gathering was as respect
able as any ever seen within the walls
of that splendid building, which was
packed to the very dome. There may
possibly have been a vacant seat here
and there, but there were hundreds
standing in the foyer, and in numbers it
surpassed the Carlisle meeting. An
even more significant fact Is that the
audience was heartily In accord with
the speaker, while the most strenuous
efforts of the gold men to fill the house
with their friends utterly failed to give
Mr. Carlisle a sympathetic audience.
