Will the Bepublic intimate what ratio
it prefers? If "ilver has not depre
ciated, as it can be demonstrated that
it has not. why should we change the
ratio? The issuance of silver dollars
at any ratio redeemable in gold will
only add to our already heavy burden
of debt. If the silver dollar should be
treated as a money of final payment.

a well-fought legal battle, the defend

lay in professional jealousy: Bro. S.

put up announcing the superiority of

York Sun, were the board of directors
of the public schools a week ago or
dered that the litature of the organiza
tion be in the future excluded from the
schools, on the ground that the teach
ers therein were "pernicious" and "a
century behind the times. " The lita
ture is on the evils of rum and tobacco,
and a recent pamphlet circulated in
the schools declared that a user of to
bacco could not be a christian. A lec
ture on the evils of cigarette smoking
has been delivered in the schools once
a week by a W. C. T. U. lecturer. In
the future the lecturer will be permit
ted to talk to the pupils once a month
and for fiteen minutes only.
The Normal School as a State Insti
tution should be cut up py the roots.
There is no greater reason why a teach
er's education should be the peculiar
care of the state than that of the doc
tor, lawyer or mechanic. Besides, in
vestigation will show that our State
Normals develop a greater number of
barnacles than teachers. The teach
er should get no part of his education
at the expense of the State. It is un
fair to take any part of the moneys
forced from the people by taxation
and give it to a young 'gentleman to
prepare him for a profession. I ought
not to be compelled by law to help my
neighbor with the money I have earned
prepare himself for any special calling.
I ought not to be taxed directly for the
private advantage of any roan. The
principle is wrong, and no good thing
can flow from an evil source.

usiupe, tk tew years ago so laminar a
sight to the traveler by rail or wagon,
has now almost wholly disappeared.
In Colorado, Texas and western Kan
sas shy bands, numbering from two or
three to half a dozen antelope, are
.sometimes sighted, where fifteen years
ago the herds were many and large.
The extinction of these beautiful fleet
creatures, seemingly so near at hand,
will be iess the result of systematic
hunting, such as characterized the ex
termination of the buffalo, than the
encroachments upon their feeding
grounds by cattlemen and sheepmen
with their herds, and the desultory
shooting of sportsmen, ranchmen and
cowboys, now so generally distributed
over the plains, that the timid animals
can find no place of security. In New
Mexico the antelopes have almost
wholly disappeared from the high
plains east of the Rockies, where once
they abounded, a few small herds in
the southwest of the territory being
about all that remain within its limits

The one great need of the Demo
cratic party in this State is a Demo
cratic organ. There is no such paper
now entitled to be so classed. The
Republican party, in the Globe-Demo
crat, has a fearless champion of Re
publican principles. You can tell
advance what position it will occupy
On every vital issue of the hour, it
tory and will continue to be so and in
this course it is perfectly consistent,
and. therefore, respectable. There
no difference between the Bepublic and
the Globe in the principles they advo
cate. The Globe is openly and earn
estly opposed to the free coinage of
silver. The Bepublic is opposed to
the free coinage of silver quite intense
ly as the Globe, but it endeavors to
conceal its position behind a multitude
of word?. It wants a coinage of silver
dollars to be redeemed in gold,
wants to gild the gold standard with
silver wash, in order that the people
may be deceived. It looks as if both
the Globe and Bepublic were under the
same management and working for the
same ends. It is In favor of the gold
standard pure and simple. In less
than 6ix months it will be found vio
lently advocating the fiat money
scheme promulgated in the Baltimore
plan, or any other plan advocated by
the class that deals in money. Were
it thought necessary, the Tariff Barons
could have it screaming and howling:
against the further agitation of the
Tariff question. There is a suspicion
abroad that the Democratic Centra!
Committee oi this Mate let the cam
paign go by default, and the Bepublic
was a party to this disreputable busi
ness. We can rest assured or one
thing, that if we attempt to follow
Dave Francis, the Bepublic and that
crowd of hybrids, in their attempt to
climb upon the Republican platform.
the Populist vote of this State will be
vastly greater than forty thousand
the year 1895.
The New Banking Scheme.
According to the friends of the
measure now being pushed by Air.
Carlisle and the administration, and
known as the Carlisle banking scheme.
it will prevent raids upon the treas
ury gold in order to force bond issues
and furnish us with an elastic cur
A moment's consideration will show
this to be wholly untrue. It is not
proposed that banks shall issue an ir
redeemable paper currency. If this
currency is to be redeemed, what is it
to be redeemed in? Obviously, in the
money of the country, which under the
present administration, is gold alone.
The bank-note might be made re
deemable in the treasury-note, but
the treasury-note must be redeemed in
gold; so that, as we intimated last
week, the United States treasury will,
after all, be the ultimate paymaster.
Suppose a raid was to be contemplated
on the gold of the treasury: a Board-
ng of the bank notes of these institu
tions would take place by the parties
contemplating the move. After a suf
ficient amount had been accumulated.
they would be presented to the banks
that issued them, and the treasury-
notes obtained; these would be pre
sented at the treasury department
and the gold obtained ; and when gold
should get short at the treasury, more
bonds would have to be issued to re
plenish the gold supply. The whole
scheme is a subterfuge. There is on
ly one feature about it that has any
tendency to lurmsn relief to the peo
ple, and that is the fact that it will
give us more substitutes for money,
and may have a tendency to increase
prices for a while; but this currency
can be contracted at will by those who
issue it, whenever it is desired to bear
the market. The whole scheme is a
slight-of- hand performance to deceive
the people and stop their cry for Free
Coinage of Silver. It is not proposed
to give them another dollar of the
money of final payment. In the end
John of the Smithy will pay for it all.
The Bankers' Scheme Recommended.
Jas. H. Eckles, comptroller of the
eurrency, in his report to congress
takes particular pains to laud the na
tional banking system, and to impress
upon congress the lessons he has been
taking while attending the Wall-street
He takes occasion to administer

about way. Everybody but a monom
etallist knows that a silver dollar is
worth 103 cents, even if silver bullion
has been depreciated. The comptrol
ler of the currency is one of that class
that refers to the silver dollar as the
"cheap"" dollar; yet in speaking of al
leged superiority of national bank
notes he says; "The notes issued by
the banks under government supervis
ion have been uniform in appearance
and under all circumstance of the full
face value which they purport to car
ry." He seems to lose sight of his idea
of intrinsic value as a necessary qual
ity of money. The paper in the bank
note has almost no intrinsic value, and
yet they are good, he says, for their
full face value; yet the bank note is
based on bonds, and the value of the
bonds depend upon the credit and the
honor of the government. Why then
can the government not issue its own
circulation notes as well as to give
value to the bankers notes? Simply
because the financiers" "hypnotize"
some of Uncle Sam's boys and get them
to recommend legislation specially in
the interest of the bank ring.
The Washington City correspondent
ot the Bepublic last Monday said, the
president (in his message) will present
the outline of and indorse Carlisle's
plan, the main feature of which, it is
said, is that of the Fckles plan, To
make it plain, we may add that the
Eckles plaq is the Baltimore plan, and
the Baltimore plan was laid by Boston
bankers, and hatched by the American
Banker's Association aided by their
man Eckles.
Continuing his report Comptroller
Eckles says, "If the recommendations
here made, together with that which
will follow, 6hould receive considera
tion at the hands of congress, a bill
drawn after careful study and investi
gation of the whole subject, would
necessarily embody all the details in
cident to a change from a bond to a
safety fund necessary as a basis for
bank circulation." No one familiar
with the history of the financial man
ipulators who have dictated the fin an
cial policy of this country for the last
two or three decades, will believe the
Baltimore plan the latest improve
ment in the interest of the bankers
is proposed as an improvement in the
interest of the people at large. There
is an ax to grind somewhere, and the
people will be asked to turn the grind
This question, we predict, will not be
a strictly political party question
Democrats, Republicans. Populists and
Prohibitionists who believe in giving
the bankers more complete control of
the currency will favor the plan; those
of all parties who do not, will oppose
it. Journal of Agriculture.
