To j -v Kansas City Star a violent harangue against all ho will not fall down and worship the aristocrats of gold monop- oly. which closes as follows: No nation ever undertook to raise ; fUT.$s to carry on war by the issue of paper money without bringing disaster on tbe people. Tbe experiment has been tried repeatedly, and it has al I ways resulted in deranging the finan ces of the country which tried it. This Is a fair specimen of tbe auda ; cious falsehoods and the loathsome ; ignorance of the goidbug press. Ev erv reader of historv knows that no ; country has ever carried on a great ! war involving national existence witb-i i out the Issuance or paper money. Is is ! not true that such issuance brought ! disaster: on the contrary, it was the ! issuance of paper money that whipped Napoleon and placed England in the first rank of military and commercial nations ol the world.

There were two vacancies on the Supreme Court bench. President Grant selected Bradley, of New Jersey, and Strong, of Pennsylvania, whose views upon the paramount question of legal tender money were well known, and nominated them as Justices of tbe Supreme Court. The charge was made that tbe Republican party was packing the Court. The imputation was treat ed with contempt by the Republicans in Congress, and the only defense that the friends of the government made the government of the necessary sovereign power to issue money, with out which its very existence was In danger. The question between what the Republicans denounced as copper beadism thirty years ao and what was 1 then claimed to be the essential test of j patriotism is presented in the issue s between bonds and greenbacks cow , for catioaal aothoritJ aDd the right of j lfce T-oi:ed States to exigU ?od ers to tbe ey EOt with standing.

They are not in favor of any distinctly American finan cial policy. They are willing for the money snarks to shape and control tbe finances of tbe country, with the as sistance of foreign sbylocks. They do not believe in equal rights to all. but tbey believe in concentrating all pow er and wealth in the hands of a few, giving to the masses only the right of serving and doing the will of the nabobs. They do cot believe in liberty of any kind except the liberty to be subservient and obedient to party boss es. They act as if they deem it a precious privilege to worship the pow er which tbey have accorded to wealth. We have seen specimens stalking around with scarcely enough seat to their breeches to hide their shirt-tails, crying against the iniquities of an in come tax which would compel the rich to pay some of the expenses of main taining the government.

Bee h el, who was for 15 years chief auditor of the Pacific Express Co., is on trial at Omaha, charged with embezzlement. The earn lost is said to be 200,000, all of which, it appears, was 'appro priated'" by the company, "to inf uecce legislation. " Tbe stockholders, of whom George Gould is one. are dissat isfied and propose to make the officials disgorge. This is the story, and there is no reason to believe that it is cot true But it would be interesting to know how many and what corporations have such slosh funds to distribute in State capitals. Do corporations make a habit of buying favorable legislation and pay ing blackmail to prevent the passage of inimical acts? Are corporations whose interest penetrate every State in tbe Union guilty of corrupting all the legislatures in tbe country? The Omaha scandal should be thor oughly probed by the pablic authori ties. It points to a rotten and unen durable condition of public and private morals. St. Laais Potl-Ditpatck. In fiemontm. Died at bis residence, 31171 Morgan street, St- Louis, Sunday.

Lindsay was one ot the pioneers of the Valley, though for the past twenty years a resident of St- Louis. The following sketch of his long and varied life was written by himself a couple of years ago, and will prove of general interest James Lindsay was born io Orange county. Vs.. January 14. 1814.

In 1852 was elected State Senator from the 24th District, composed then of what is Madison, Iron. Reynolds, Car ter. Ripley. Oregon. Howell, Shannon, Texas and Wright counties, and co operated with tbe Internal Improve ment members in voting tbe aid of the State in starting railroad building in Missouri. Was for several years di rector of the St. Louis and Iron Moun tain Railroad. Iron county was formed in winter of 1856-7. and Ironton, the county seat, was located, when he established the Ironton Furnace, at first a very mod erate free-soil paper, but increased in vigor as time went oo and openly sop ported Abraham Lincoln for President in I860. Was sent as a delegate to tbe Chicago Convention in 1860 that nominated Mr. Lincoln. The first Republican State ticket ever pat up in Missouri was io 18&0, when the State Republican Convention nominated a free ticket, naming James B. Gardenhire of Cole county, for Gov ernor, and James Lindsay of Iron county for Lieut. -Governor. In 1861 the civil war was upon us. He was enthusiastic . for the Union cause and at once entered into the work. The Furnace was suspended, and he put one son and two other boys out of tbe office into Col. F. P. Blaio's 1st Mo. Infantry, and otherwise assist ed in recruiting the Regiment. Re cruited one whole company for the 6th Missouri Regiment (CoL Peter E Bland), and many others of the mem bers. Was Acting Quartermaster for the 8th Missouri Zouave Regiment, j CoL Morgan L. Smith), headquarters at Lafayette Park. aDd as such issued passes directing the conductors on the St- Louis. Alton and Chicago Railroad to pass (blanks) number of men from Chicago to Sit. Louis. They poured down from Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan (their quotas having been Siled), and with those of Missouri, made o&e of the best fighting Regi ments in the service. j; ;lJ:Vl large number of pigs of lead that was being hauled into Arkansas, between Union men and secessionists. Tbe j lead was taken and shipped to General Lyon at the St. Louis Arsenal. When Governor Ceiabe Jackson and General j Sterling Price came to St. Louis, about tbe 1st of May. 1861. to have an ioter- view with Geuena and CoL Blair, be' (Lindsay) carried the verbal messenger between them to bave the meeting, j Jackson and Prise were offered an es- j cort to come to tbe Arsenal, but tbeyj : declined and insisted that Lyon and Blair should come to the Planter" House, and the meeting took place. History relates what occurred after the meeticg. In October. 1861. he (Lindsay) par ticipated in the battle at Frederick town brought on by the Rebel Gent Je7 Thompson. CoL Carl in of the SSth 111. Regiment desired him to ac company tbe command that moved from Pilot Knob to meet Thompson be baring livd there for a number of years and being well acquainted with the country and the people. He did so; volunteering for the occasion co operated with Schofieid battery. Thompson was quickly squelched and put to flight. In June. 1861. he gave up the Quar termaslership of the 8th Missouri, acd accepted the appointment from Presi dent Lincoln as Register of Lauds, with an order to remove the Land Office from Jackson to Ironton, which be ex ecuted in July. The war being on aad oo business doing, he got permission to close the office acd got leave to go in March, 1862. with Genl Steele's division on tbe White River expedition, where a junction was made with Geo'l Custiss' division at Batesvilie. This army reached Helena oa the Mississippi river in August, when he returned to Ironton . aod in a short time began to recruit aod organize the 68 th Regiment Missouri Militia (mounted), became Colonel of It, en gaged Giles F. Fiiley. of the Excelsior Manufacturing Company, to make him those light cannons to nse with the Regiment, aod paid for them out of his own pocket, and used them on the enemy with great effect. He was ordered by Gen'l Carr, ia command of the Department of Mis souri, in January. 1863. to scout the country north of Bloomfield and pitch into the rebel maurader. but instead he went with 250 men direct to and dashed into Bloomfield. routing a large body of Confederates and captured horses, saddlers; large amount of amunition acd as many prisoners as they could conveniently carry to Iron ton and transfer to Gratiot street mili tary prison. Among those prisoners were E. W. Hill, Provost Marshal of Bloomfield. a brother of Sena tor David B. HilL An account of this dafh may be seen in the Adjutant Gen'l of Missouri's report for 1863. Without mentioning other occasions, in September. 1863. at the ttme of tbe Marmaduke and Shelby raid into Mis souri Gen'l Vanderver commanding ordered bim to charge tbe camp of a part of Gen'l Shelby's brigade ia the night lime near 1 o'clock, with his battery company, which was promptly executed, supported by part of tbe 3d Iowa cavalry, under command of Maj. Caldwell, now Judge Caldwell of tbe U. S. Circuit Court- It was in tbe Poplar woods near Jackson. Missouri. It made a lively, belter-skelter, topsey turvey scamper. Ia the summer of 1863 tbe member elect to Congress from the 3d Mo. dis trict died, and a special election was ordered for November. He, (Lindsay) was the unconditional Union or Repub lican candidate, though receiving a large vote, was declared by tbe House committee oa election to bave been beaten by 61 roles. In 1864 be was elected by tbe Joint General Assembly of Missouri, for a term of 6 years Curator of the State University. CoL Lindsay leaves a widow. 10 children and several grandchildren. He was married twice: First at Mad ison county. Mo., where he mar ried Miss Caroline Frier, aod six chil dren were born to them, only three of whom are living. His wife died after a married life of eight years. He then moved to Iron count". Missouri, where be settled down nod married Miss Jeraldine Peck, who survives him. Seven children were born to this union, all of whom are living. Mr. Lindsay held many positions of trust during bis long and busy life. His earthly career cow closed, fee sleeps "awaiting the resurrection day.'" beneath the sod of tbe Valley he so -loved that his eyes ever turned to It In regretful longing. Peace to his ashes! Hundreds of thousands hare been induced to try Chamberlain's Cough Remedy by reading what it has done for others, and having tested its merits for themselves are to-day its warmest friends.
