The morning organ of monopoly or what Mr. McCulloch's shooting stars have left of It, which isn't much in dulges in a half column of high-flown rhetorical cant over what it pleases to term "the passing of an ism" mean ing the subsidence of free silver as an issue In current American politics. Our deoreplt neighbor says, with an absurd affectation of moral superiority: The Journal welcomes the change, notwithstanding the fact that it takes from its party the strongest issue it bad since the civil war, namely, an appeal to the common honesty of the American people. But the menace of the free Bilver theory was of sufficient Importance to transcend considera tions of party advantage, striking as it did at the very root of the pros perity and contentment of the people and threatening American credit throughout the world. It was too seriouB a matter to be given over to the chance of politics. From which the unsophisticated might be led to believe that "free Bilver" was a novel and dishonest theory, evolved by political dema gogues to deceive the American people, Instead of the established policy of the American government for more than three-quarters of a century accepted and indorsed by all schools of states men and all political parties. When 11 IB remembered that the leaders of the Republican party such men as John Sherman, William Mc Klnley, William B. Allison, George F. Hoar and William E. Chandler were openly and aggressively for free silver until a very recent date; that a Re publican Congress passed a free silver bill by a large majority'1 only a few years ago, every Republican Congress man from Indiana, Including such men bb John H. Baker, Thomas M. Browne and William H. Calkins, voting "aye;" and that Republican State Conventions all over the country repeatedly In dorsed and demanded it, the amazing hypocrisy and effrontery of the de cayicg Fairbanks organ's assumptions may be faintly realized. Because the play of economlo forces, not brought into action by.any politi cal party or public policy, has afforded, for the time being, the relief which the bimetallic movement demanded, offers no ground for reflecting either on the honeBty or the wisdom of that movement, which was supported by many of the greatest thinker and publicists of all political parties, both in Europe and America.

The happenings before that body are supposed to be hold sacred. The Beal of silence is placed by the law on witnesses, jurors and officials alike.' Yet every day St. Lcuisans are furn ished by the papers with a full account of the happenings of the grand jury room. Newspaper readers are not only told the names of witnesses, but are also told exactly what those witnesses testi' fied to. The newspapers go through the mockery of introducting many semi apologetic phrases such as "It is alleged that," "It is Bald that," It Is said that it is said," and so on, but these fool no one. "It is understood that Jones testified concerning the glucose bill. It is said that he confessed that he roceived a $1,000 bribe while in the Legislature. It Is Intimated that he alleged that Jones of the Molasses trust was the man who did the bribing. It is said that it 1b understood that several in dictments may be expected In a few dayB." This is the sort of stuff that has been dished up to the people of St. Louis almost every day for two years. The items published by the news papers in this regard are, almost with out exception, true. For every paper in St. Louis, In cluding the World, is daily furnished with a reliable account of the happen ings of the grand 'jury room. From a news standpoint the World appreciates the favors bestowed upon it and the other papers. But how about the legal standpoint? Is not that worthy of some consider atlonP St. Louis World. College Education. The Rev. Dr. William E. Barton, in an address before the graduating class of Yankton college, declared there is danger that "a large proportion of our eduoated men will become a burden on the community." What he meant can oe gatnerea irom sucn utterances as the following: "I can bear with the student oharlt ably if he counts the classics of little Importance compared with the ability to make a home run on the diamond or kick a goal on the gridiron, but if mere musole were the end of educa tlon the hayfield Is a cheaper and more effective way of producing it than the college. If elub life and good fellow ship are the main thing, they can be had without the assistance of learned professors and hugh oollege endow' meets."

Men' Underwear, 25c, 30c, 50c, posed that Dr. Barton's opinion the men who bid fair to become a charge upon the community are not those who receive the education of the college class and lecture room, but men who go to college for other purposes and neglect this essential. There is grave danger not only that such men are failing to fit themselves for successful careers, but. that they are bringing into disrepute the insti tutions that give them certificates of scholarship which they have' not earned. The chief fault does not lie with the young men. Many of them are in college because they are sent there. Tbey have little or no idea of a useful career. They are there to get the maximum of fun with the minimum of work. The true purpose of a college edu cation would be to change all this to plant in the young man the seeds of ambition and to develop in him habits of industry and continuity of purpose. If the college fails to do this and, instead, turns out men no better de veloped than they would have been had the same time been spent in the hayfield, the fault is not with the college management that for the sake of the name of turning out large classes or in the hope of getting large endowments from rich fathers of diploma bearers, cortlfies to the scholarship of young men who do not deserve so much as a high school diploma. It is not the really educated man who is in danger of becoming a burden on the community, but the man who has come out of college uneducated and who is deceived by his diploma into the supposition that he is fitted for intellectual pursuits, when in fact he has only been fitted for the hayfield.

No Cure, No Pay. 60o. . Pension Corruption. In the Spanish-American war in Cuba a total of 243 were killed on our Bide, including those who died from wounds. Only about 20,000 eoldierB in all went to the scene of brief conflict. Yet 12,000 claims for pensions have already been allowed and more than 60,000 applicants have been filed. It is already clear that the pensions for this little war will cost more than the war Itself, wblle the war was soon over, the pensions will drag on for years and years. Civil war pensioners, 40 years after the war, are about as numerous as Cures Grip In Two Days. on every (J& SthJS7' - tv" SHOES: 1.20, 1.30, 1.35, 1.50. 2.G5, 1.80, 2.00, 2.45, MEN'S HOSE, ioc pair, 3 pairs for 25c. 4 pairs for 35c. 2 pairs for 25c. 15c Fancy.

C Cuban veterans pro mise an even longer lease of life, for they were picked young men. Fifty years from now it will be no uncom mon thing, perhaps, for the govern ment to pay Spanish war pensions to dependent widows who are not yet born. It is utterly impossible, of course, that 60,000 of the men who enlisted in the Spanish war, and only 20,000 of whom even got to the front, should have been sufficiently disabled as to justify their demand for pensions. The thing is becoming a scandal that seriously reflects upon the patri otism and honesty of the men whom the nation would like to regard as ideal citizens. It is bad enough to know that the government is de frauded, but it is worse still te know that soldiers who might have fought bravely, had the opportunity been offered, can stoop to such a palpable attempt at fraud. The fault is no doubt, mostly in the pension department. The granting of one false claim breeds many other false claims. The ease with which a fraud ulent pension can be secured, encour ages men to put in claims they would not have thought of offering if sure to be subjected to close and honest scrutiny. There is a seductiveness about pension hard to be resisted. And the looseness of the pension department is corrupting into sneaks and perjurers many who might othewlse be regarded as the best men in the nation. It is a fraud that should have laid upon it the heavy hand. St. Louis Chronicle. It Is Wrong igain. The New Orleans Picayune now ad mits tbat the supporters of the Chicago and Kansas City platforms only asked for the reinstatement of the law which Andrew Jackson signed, but it at tempts to dodge the issue by complain ing that conditions are different. It says: To-day silver is worth per ounce in London, the greatest silver market of the world, about 50 cents, so that our silver dollar would be worth about 38 conts. If we had the free coinage of silver, anybody could go into the mar ket and buy Bilver at, say 50 cents an ounce, and have it coined and pay it out at the rate of 129 cents an ounce. Tho position taken by the Picayune Is absurd. It is strange that a man who has intelligence enough to oc cupy a position on the editorial staff of any paper should be guilty of bo ridiculous a statement. Why should any man Bell his silver at 50 cents an ounce and let another man make the profit on it? Wa do not sell hogs or corn, cotton or cattle, in that way. Tbe moment that prioes. go up In New York it goes up all over tbe country, and so when a man can go to the mint and coin an ounce of silver into $1.29 he will not sell it to the editor of the Picayune for SO cents or anything less than 1.29. The argument of tbe Picayune re' oalls the story told by Ignatius Don nelly. ' It ran like this: Two men were dlsousslng the money question in a sleeping car, and as they talked others came up and asked questions. Finally one man asked the silver man if he thought it was right for the gov ernment to pais a law that would en able a person to buy silver for 50 cents and coin it into a dollar and make the difference (the same argument ad vanced by the Picayune). Tho silver man explained that under free coinage any man in the world could take an ounce of silver to the mint and con vert it into f 1 29, and then asked if, under such a law, anybody In tbe car would (ell an ounce of silver for lees than $1 29 and lot some other person make tbe profit. There was silence for a moment, and then a voice in a remote corner said: "I would." 'Jhe silyer man went to see from what source the voice came, and found that it came from a young man that was sitting by bis mother, and the mother said: "Don't pay any attention to the boy. He is an idiot, and I am taking him to the asylum." If the editor of the Picayune would not sell his silver for lees than its market value, why does he suppose any one else would; and if nobody would sell hiB silver for less than it was worth at the mint, how could any body buy an ounce for 50 centB and coin it into $1.29? The trouble is that the editor of the Picayune, like other goldites who dis cuss tbe question without understand ing it, talks about buying silver be fore a free coinage law passes and then talks about coining it after the free coinage law passes, without consider ing the influence of a law-crc&led de mand upon the price of Bilver. The Commoner. History Distorted. A Kansas reader of the Commoner quotes a magazine writer as saying that the gold standard was adopted by the United States in 1831 uDder tbe leadership of Andrew Jackson and Thomas Benton. It is Btrange that any one could be bo ignorant of history or bo deyoid of conscience as to make Buch an assertion. The law of ,1831 merely reduced the size of the gold dollar, so as to make it wpigh one sixteenth as much as the silver dollar, it having weighed one-fifteenth as much from 1792 down to that year. Free and unlimited coinage at the ratio of 16 to 1 continued to 1873, and every holder of gold and silver bullion could have his bullion converted Into unlimited legal tender money at the established ratio. Prior to 1834 the gold dollar was undervalued at the mint, and was therefore at a premium. Between 1834 and 1873 the Bilver dol lar was undervalued at the mint, and therefore at a premium. When in 1896 and 1900 tho gold standard advocates declared that the ' gold Btandard was adopted in 1834 tbe advocates of bimetallism answered them conclusively by offering to ac cept as a settlement of the question, the very law which Jackson signed, but aB that law provided for the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation, it was of course not ac ceptable to the gold-bugs. All that bimetallists ask for to-day is the re enactment of the very law of 1834 to which Andrew Jackson affixed bis signature. The Commoner. One thousand hunches imported flowers. Bonanza. OASTOniA.
