j ALL COMING TO II
The Change by the World to the
FINALLY DRIVES ECUADOR
To Adopt the Sumo Monetary System.
That Country lins Formally Been
Upon a bl-Mctallic Basis?All Paper
Money Hereafter Will be Redeemable
in Gold?American Gold "Worth
More Titan Exchange.
WASHINGTON, Starch 20. ? Consul
General Deleon, at Guayaquil, reports
to the otate department that the change
by the world to a gold basis has finally
driven Ecuador to adopt the same
course, congress having Just enacted a
law which within two years, he says,
will place the monetary system on .a
gold basis. Ecuador. has heretofore
been upon a so-called bl-metalllc, but
practically monometallic, silver basis
no gold In circulation and her silver
irredeemable. The circulation of the
country, ne says, was ana is almost
altogether paper money issued by the
banks and redeemable in silver only.
The effect of the present law, he says,
will be to put Ecuador on a gold basis,
and while paper money will continue to
be the money in circulation it will be
redeemable In gold and not In silver,
as at present. The condor, which may
be regarded as the unit ot value, will
be practically of the same metallic
value as the pound sterling and the
Bilver sucre will possess an actual value
of about 45.6 cents irt American gold,
ten of them being equal to one condor.
Exchange on New York has been arbitrarily
fixed by banks and merchants
during the lost ten months at 103 .to
108, but this rate has not been strictly
adhered to; 110 and more has been paid.
The consul general s.nyr- that another
anomaly has been that American gold
- ' has been worth from 10 to 15 cents more
" ^than exchange. The stable condition
cf Ecuadorian currency, the financial
resources of the banks of issue, which;
the consul general says, are relatively
ua solid as any in the world, and the
crying need for a fixed monetary standard,
he says, seem to give assurance
that the present measure is wise.
Conditions hitherto existing have been
most favorable to the wealthy cocoa,
I coffee and sugar planters, who sold
I their products for gold and paid in silver
for all they bought In Ecuador,
notably for labor, which has been the
I chief sufferer. Wages, low at best,
have been lower still since payable in a
The law recently enacted, the consul
general says. Is expected to be thorI
oughly adequate to the needs of the
country. Mr. Deleon adds that after
thorough consideration the mercantile
interests came to the conclusion that
the only remedy for the unsatisfactory
tsuiie ol amurs tvnicn nas prevaueu ror
the past Ave years was the adoption
of. the gold standard at the rate of 30.6
to-1. Ecuador Is the fourth country of
Latin America to adopt the gold standard,
Venezuela, Costa Rica and Peru
having already takon the step. Brazil,
Uruguay and Chile, while nominally
on a gold basis, the consul general says,
are really subject to the disadvantages
of paper money, because their international
financial condition precludes an
easy conversion of the currency.

circular Issued by Acting Postmaster
General Heath, construing the act of
Congress making Sundays and holidays
exclusive of the annual leave of clerks
In the executive department to also Include
the clerks at all first and second
class postofllces, has produced a host
ot' queries from other employes. The
clerks at the first two classes of offices
were hold to be Included because the
poBtofllcc department has full Jurisdiction
over them. Mr. Heath, however,
holds that the law doer, not apply to
clerks at tin- third and fourth class
offices, as they are hired and paid Independently

It apply to letter carriers, because statute
provision tlxes the number of hours
per day they shall work, which being
construed to mean so many hours, In

CRITICAL PERIOD IN IRON.
Borne "Words of Caution ? Continued
Activity at Present Price* Depends
on a Good Many Contingencies.
Louisville Courier Journal: The boom
In the Iron and steel market, which is
at the foundation of the present Industrial
prosperity, has reached a period
that may be regarded as critical. Prices
have shown remarkable advances for
several months and, on nn average, are
CO per cent higher for pig Iron than a
year ago; C6 2-3 per cent higher on
steel bl'ilets, 50 per cent, on steel rails,
and so oa. The scarcity of material for
Immediate delivery is ho great as to approach
a famine, and while this demand
Is relatively small, it is so urgent
that It makes further advances very
probable. On the other hand; it is the
usual thing for prices not to be pushed
to their highest point about the time
when the summer conferences between
operators and employes arc- held. Wages
have been advanced in all directions,
especially during the last month, but it
Is hardly likely that manufacturers
will tempt demands for further concessions
at present. Production has also
been greatly stimulated, and a large
number of new plants are toon to be in
Operation. A few days ago it was announced
that six blast furnaces would
be opened In the Birmingham district.
The great steel plant at Lorain, O., will
also be opened In June, and Its ouput
will do much to relieve the drain upon
In view of these considerations It Is
not surprising that the last number of
the Iron Age, In Its summary of the
market, should have the following significant
"Still, after all, this does not touch
the burning question at what prices
new contracts will be made to replace,
those expiring in the second and third
quarters. At what level will buyers be
forced to'take hold again? There are-a
number of well authenticated cases in
which purchases for the second half
have been made at prices pretty close
to those' now ruling. But If is a fact
that many buyers are inclined to await
developments. This involves one great
risk, and that is that no disturbances
occur in any one of the chain of links
from the ore and fuel In the ground to
the finished material. It must not be
forfiotten that there Is a "tremendous
strain.upon the facilities for mining,
transportation and the different stages
of fabrication. I/ot anything occur to
cause trouble, delay or suspension and
the whole industry is disorganized: The
weather during the last month furnished
a good illustration\of this, although
it would be ordinarily a very unimportant
Of course, if anything should happen
to check production, there would be no

It is not safe to reckon upon bucIi a

even If quotations are not Jncrpasod ,
they nre not likely to decline. This view j
Is sustained by the action of the market |
during the memorable period of pros- j

year, beginning In Muy, 1879. and ending
In May, 1SS0. The railroad compan- j

next wore $G8, theri declining to
$15 by July and remaining steady, at an
advance of a dollar or two a ton, the
remainder of the year and through 1881. j
Steel rails were $11 In January, 1879.'and j
advanced to $85 In February, 1880, but I
' declined to $58 In December, and then I
remained steady with Iron rails through
1881. noH?cmer pig Iron at Pittsburgh
ranged from $20 in January, 1879, to 526
in August, then advanced until F.j?>ruory,
when the quotations were $45 to $51,

MERIT NOT IN DOUBT
Wonderful Results Obtained Here !

Another Citizen Who Adds Ilcr
Testimony to What has
, * Been Said.
There is no doubt whatever as to the
merits of Morrow's Kld-ne-oids, Judging
from the v.-onderful results obtained '
right here in Wheeling. Morrow's
Kld-ne-olds are used dally by hundreds
of Wheeling people and they all testify I
without hesitancy about the great
good they have received by the use of
this great kidney preparation. Kidne-oids
will positively cure kidney
backache, dizziness, sleeplessness, restlessness,
nervousness and all urinary
disorders and diseases arising from
a disordered condition of the kidneys.
Another citizen adds her testimony as
Mrs. B. Gartner residing at ISO Sixtoenth
street, makes this statement: "I
suffered for a long time with disordered
kidnoys. At times the pain across the
small of my back would be extremely
severe and would extend through my
sides and stomach, making me very
sick. I grew very nervous and could
not rest well at night. Sometimes 1
would awake with a start and then it
would be hours before I could get to i
sleep again, and In the morning when
I would got up I would feel completely
worn out. It seemed that nothing I
could get would da or give me relief.
fcdvertlsedl decided to give them a trial.
I secured some at Chas. R. Goetze's
drug: store; he guarantees them to cure
If the directions are followed or refunds
the money. I took them for a
short time as the directions said and
they gave me relief. That was some
time ago and I have not been troubled
fclnce. I can recommend Kid-ne-oids
to anyone suffering as X did."

went into the; hands of his son and executor,
John H. Crumbacker. to be held

daughter, Sarah Matilda Crumbacker. and
at her deatli to be distributed in equal
I parts among her brothers and sisters. The
said executor, John II. Crumbacker. became
insolvent within three or four years
after his appointment, and subsequently
died, having, it is charged in the bill, appropriated
a large portion (about twothird?)
of scld trust fund to his own

cesslvely parsfd into the hands of different
trustees, and at the death of the said
i Sarah Matilda Crumbacker. at Weston,
West Virginia, In May. 1S37, was ia ths
