THE SILVER CUAZK.
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
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-
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
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-
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 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.

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
