The agitation for the free coinage of silver has of late acquired an uncommon ly vehement character, which makes it appear more powerful and dangerous than before. To form a clear judgment it will be profitable to analyze the ele ments of its strength. The tree coinage movement is carried on by several classes of people very different from one another: 1. The silver miners, who care mainly for the price of their product, and who expect from free coinage a very large profit. 2. A small number of theor ists who have reasoned themselves into an honest belief that free coin age will increase the volumn of cur rency and by this means cure many of our economic ailments. 3. A large nuni har of neonle. especially in the south and west, who are discontented with their condition, who have been made to look to the government for some miraculous contrivance to relieve them of their debts nnrt to eive them good markets, and who tliink that the issuing of plenty of "cheap money" will have this effect. Of these classes the third is the most im portant, because it gives the free coinage movement its numerical stsength. The coinage of silver upon a just ratio with gold under the exclusive control of the government is all right, but the so called free coinage of it without regard to its comparative value with gold would in our judgment bring about a state of affairs that the people would have cause for regret. SIXTEEN TO ONE. Rvnn net "of congress of 1"!2 the true commercial ratio of silver and gold was fixed at 15 to 1, that is fifteen ounces of silver were equal in value to one of gold, and the coinage of the two metals was authorized on that basis. The silver dollar contained 3Tl)i and the gold dollar 2t1i grains, but it was soon discovered that a mistake had been made, as the value of the gold dollar was one cent and one-eight more than a sil ver (hilar, and the consequence was that silver drove the gold out of use. In 1837 the value of the gold dollar was changed to 23.22 grains, and silver about sixteen to one, which has been the standard ever since. Therefore, that is what is meant by sixteen to one. The standard silver dollar contains 371 VI erains of silver and one-tenth alloy, and the gold dollar 23.22 grains of gold, exclusive of alloy. In short a sii ver dollar is sixteen times the weight of a gold dollar. This is the week' for festivities for the soldiers of the lost cause at Richmond, Va. Mrs. Jefferson Davis and daughter, Winnie, were tendered a reception in the white house of the confederacy, yester day, and tomorrow tho top stone will be lowered on the foundation for a monu ment to the late Jefferson Davis. It is nxncrted that a committee will be appointed to arrange for the writing np and publication of a United States his tory to be used in the pnblic schools, as the southern people claim that the one . now in use waa written by a writer from the north, hence the statements are colored, aside from the omission of the real cause of the controversy. High rate of taxation is being felt all over the country, and the question na turally arises what course will be pur sued to reduce them. A glance at Uie levies made for the support of the schools, comoration, township and county are about as low a9 can reasonably be ex pected under the present system pf oper ating them; therefore, if any retrench- l w "... ment is made it will have to bo In the wav ot reducing the force and leaving something undone that is now done. The rate now tald in every incorporated vil lage, town or city in the Btate amounts to about half the annual interest we re- i eeive on loans, which make public bene fits come high. The delinquent list for the last half for 1805 throughout the state is likely to be a large one. When Beniamin Harrison, of Indiana, was nominated for president in 1888, a large number of people m the state and in Illinois appeared to be impressed with the idea that the nominee for president on the republican ticket desired their presence in Indianapolis, consequently during the month of September about five days in the week excursion trains heavily loaded with people from tho rural districts arrived at Indianapolis. Mr. Harrison had to make a speech and then pass through the trying ordeal of shaking hands with his visitors. We do not believe It made him one vote, but on the other hand it was reported that in the districts where the boomers hailed from the republican majorities were greatly reduced. Hon. Lvman Trumbull. ex-United States Senator from Illinois, departed this life at Chicago last Thursday. He entered the senate March 4, 1855, and served for three successive terms. He was an able defender of the union against secession and during the rebel lion was an untirintr worker in the in- rj terest of the soldier and for a vigorous prosecution or the war. Men who served with Wade. Giddimrs. Seward. Sumner. Chase, and a score of other great minds in the senate are becoming scarce. His remains were interred Sunday followed by a largo concourso of leading men of the country. The monev Question in the democratic ranks is far from being settled. The supposition is that the free coinage silver nlank will be inserted at tho con vention to be held in Chicago next week, but there a.mears to be a number of leading lights in the party that claim to be opposed to it. The bolters at St Louis will watch the proceedings with care and if the platform suits they will doubtless fall into hue and nerhans the nonnhsts will also, merely for the sake of gaining a little prestige in case the democrats should get into power. Brother Johnson, of the Reporter. claims that the anti-saloon people are out of groceries again and are about to pass the bat to raise funds to obtain a supply. Two years ago Editor Johnson made the poor people a specialty in distribut ing fuel aud provisions to them and we cannot see why he should discriminate now in not doing likewise to the antis. A Weekly Budget of Interesting ew from the Capital. . tPiciitvnTOM. Jnne2t5. At the head quarters of the republican congressional nnninnicrn committee the bustle of the ..... t D campaign is already becoming apparent. Representative Babcock ot Wisconsin, the efficieut chairman or. me couiunucc rotnrnori tn Washington this week anu at once began to map out the plan of campaign. He has not the Biigntest doubt about the republicans electing a majority ot the next house, nor or ine election of McKinley and Hobart. ne says the strong declaration of the plat form against the Independent tree coin age of silver by the United States will probably cause the loss ot a lew districts in what are known as the silver Btatas which would otherwise have been repub lican, bnt that he belolves that declara tion will gain more districts in other sections of the country than it will lose in the silver states, especially if the Chicago convention adopts a straightout free silver plank, as now seems probaoie. At the headnuarters of the democratic congressional commission general apa thv is in command. Not a wheel will be turned there until the Chicago conven tion decides what position the democrats will take on ;the financial question. A member of that committee says it tne Chicago convention adopts a free sil ver plank the committee will aoanuon the eastern and middle states and devote all of its attention to the west and south. No matter what the Chicago convention does no well-informed democrat has tne slightest hope of preventing the republi cans retaining control of the house, al though, of course, few ot them will pub licly admit as much. It now appears that the rumor wnicn were prevalent when Fitz Lee was nom inntarito be council general to Cuba, about his being sent there for the specific purpose of making a report that couiu oe utilized to work up a war scare for ef fect upon the Chicago convention, had jrood foundation. But Fitz has bungled the job by letting the cat out of the bag before the right time. True, his report has not been made public, but in a letter written to an indiscreet relative in Washington he expressed some opinions not iutended for publication, but which tho aforesaid relative allowed to get into print, that made it easy enough to guess the tenor of the report, ana to add to tne certaintv his friend Collector Ryan, of Richmond, who has just returned from Cuba, where he went to help litz find out what was going on, has been talk ing to newspaper men.
