"Before we can find the trucrcmedy wo
must appreciate the real evil It is not
that our currency of every kind is net good
for every dollarcf it Is good; good because
the Ooveinnunt's pledge is out to keep
It gcod.audthat pledge wlllnot be broken.
It is manifest that we must de
vise some plan to prr.tett the Government
against bjnd Issues for repeated rcdemp
tions." Why so Mr. President? No other
p'au Is needed than the prlWlege and right
of the TrejFury, under the law and the
Constitution, to pay out silver or gold it
the option cf the Governments The law
wrs not r.brocated, nor the privilege ia
tiulled, because the Cleveland Administra
tion gave the gold option to tlie creditor
In order that a gigantic nud criminal bond
speculation and issue in time of peace
might be nicomplishcd for the benefit ur
certain Wall street and English cap
italists theiand w e rear now, very closely
in the confidence of our Government. But
the "ei'dless chain" has served its purpose
and outlined Its usefulness. It Is bclie.'cd
that the American people will not Maud
a repetition of the Ik. ml scandals of 1810
and 1890. Therefore, the gold and tx.nd
syndicates demand the destruction of the
greenliacks, in order to produce a contrac
tion, the mly relief from whUli shull be
in their hands and in their sole interest.
Thcniessaei-savs: "I earnestly recommend
as soon as the receipts of the Government
are quite sufficient to pay all the expenses
of the Cioveru'iien'., that when any of th
Unlti-1 States notes are presented for re
dgrptlun in gold and are redeem-sl in geld,
such notes shall he kept aud set apirt, and
only paid ut in cx.r4i.iup? for gold. If the
bolder of the United States note prefers the
gold and gets, it from the Government, !i.
should not receive back from the Govern
ment a United States nutc without paying
gold It- exchange for it." This of course Is
not an argument specious enough to befog
the moot p-liuithe intelligence. It Is by
pocrisy pure and simple. Mr. McKinley
knows, nud just as will inir.lit lmve said,
thathii recommendation. If adopted, would
amount to the impounding of every green

that it wuuld be able to place its clutches

duced in the Hungarian Chancier of Depu

of the Austio-Hungarian compromise for
another year, without reference to any
action In the matter on the iiart of Austria.
The Cure's Progrews.
Monsieur the 'dure down the street
Comes with his kind old face
With his coat worn bare, and his straggling
And his grecn,aimbrella case.
l"ou may see lilm pass by thellttIc''Grande
PUc.,, And tne tiny ''Hotel-dc-Ville";
He imill esas he goes, tothefleuristeRose,,
And the pompier Theophlle.
He turns, as a, rule, through the ''Marche"
Where the, noisy fishwives call:
And his compliment pays to the ''belle
As she knits In her dusky stall.
There's a letter to drop at the locksmith's
And Toto, the locksmith's niece,
Has Jubilant bopes, for the Cure gropes
In his talis for a pain d'eplce.
There's a little dispute with a merchant
Who is said to be heterodox.
That will ended be with a "Ma fol, oul!''
And a pinch from the Cure's box.
There Is also a word that noons heard
To the furrier's daughter, too;
And a pale cheek fed witha fllckcrlngred,
And a "Boh Bleu garde M'sleu'."
But a grander way for the Sous-Prefet,
And a bow for Ma'am'selle Anne;
And a mock "off-hat'' to the Notary's cat.
And a nod to the Sacristan:
Forever through life the Cure goes
With a smile on his kind oldfuce
With his coat worn bare.aml hlsstraggllng
And bis green umbrella -case.
