The public school at Ohio City is closed, the result of a fistic encounter between Superintend ent Woolsoa and the grammar grade teacher, Mr. Louden. Several schol- ars assisted Louden, and all were ar rested and bound over to the grand jury. , The trouble was the result of nAtv villa nafn rtlfarip! riv trtfl ftiinerin- tendent, which did not suit the gram mar department teacher and the ' pu nils.

After reviewing the history of our monetary legislation since the war he takes up the existing situation, and says: "The evil of the present system Is found in the great cost to the govern ment of maintaining the parity of our different forms of money; that is, keeping all of them at par with goldi" And again he says: "We have $900,000, 000 of currency which the government by solemn enactment has undertaken to keep at par with gold." And still again he declares: "The government, without any fixed gold revenue, is pledged to maintain gold redemption, which it has steadily and faithfully one, and which under the nuthonty now given it will continue to do." After showing the lack of wisdom. the folly, of selling bonds, and thereby adding to our interest-bearing debt for the purpose of redeeming over and over again a noninterest-bearlng debt in the shape of United State notes, the president makes the proposal here tofore predicted in these columns. He urges that when United States notes are redeemed by the government in gold they should be set apart, and only paid out, if at all, in exchange for gold, and he says thnt this is an obvious duty'. The president also concurs with the secretary of the treasury in rec ommending that national banks be al lowed to issue notes to the face value of the bonds which they have deposit ed for circulation and recommends that national banks be allowed to or' ganize on a capital of $25,000, in order to benefit localities not now sufficiently supplied with currency, The president makes a very strong point when he eSys that it is in times of business tranquillity and freedom from distrust that we should reform our monetary laws, and that we shouldi not wait until danger again threatens before we take, up in congress this equal profit to themselves. it Is a singular thing that our nnanciers willfully shut their eyes to the prospective ruin of all our manufacturing Industries by Mexico. "So many of our newspapers and finan ciers pretend to see no more In this sliver question than one of making our obliga tions payable In a depreciated currency. That Is not the Issue at all. "This difference In exchange, making a Mexican price of $2.32 for our gold dollar, will In time ruin every producer la the United States. "Tha nupstlnn Is one of eomDetltlon only. And the only reason why Mexico and ither silver countries have not. supplanted our manufactories before this to an extent ot their extinction Is solely due to the lack of education to that end in silver countries. "In all else they are our masters, ana can at will drive out of the open market every thing manufactured by gold nations." All of which is bosh. The difference in exchange has nothing to do with the subject at all. The root of the matter is. that in Mexico the wage rata ismucn lower than in the .United States1 or In Europe. There are thousands of people in the United States who do not under stand why a "dollar" in Mexico is not as valuable as a "dollar" in the United States, and until they recognize the dif ference between value and price they will fall into confusion. The fall in the wood's price of silver since the early '70's has carried down with it the purchasing power of the Mexican dollar. Merchants there have put up their prices to correspond with its depreciation, while the rate oi wages has not risen in the same degree. This is because of the ignorance of the masses of the Mexican people. The re sult is that Mexican laborers are work ing for much lower wages, in reality, than they were a dozen years ago. The laborer gets a Mexican dollar for his day's work, and who received a Mexi can dollar for the same amount of work ten years ago, receives about 30 cents less actual wages than he did then This ignorance on the part of the peo ple of that country is the secret of the probable, profits of the syndicate men tioned.

Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. BRYANISM STILL MENACES. Note of Warning Which Repob llcnns Should Heed. Congressman Dingley sounds a note of needed warning when he points to the elections in Kentucky and Nebraska as proofs that Bryamsm is not dead In Nebraska, almost above all states in the union, the logic of events ought to have convinced the voters of the folly of the free silver doctrine. It is many years since wheat brought such prices os now are offered for it; it is long since os, many .mortgages were paid off in four months as in and between August and November, 1897; it is long since as many new -houses and barns were in course of erection on the farms of Ne braska as now ; it is long since there was such a demand for land as now is ob servable. Silver has gone down while wheat has gone up, and prosperity has returned while a sound currency pre vailed. Yet the Nebraska farmer has not recanted his populism It may be, and we are Mraid that it is, true that silver is but the mask of Eryanism. It may be that, while the silver question is made the subject of opeu debate, the more revolutionary principles ot the Chicago platform are the hidden springs of populistic action It may be that the desire to confiscate railways, to half repudiate the debts of states and cities by payment of creditors in 50-cent dollars, and to make the federal judiciary the tool of a mob that will control a populistic president were the moving forces in Nebraska. The -socialistic leaven is at work se cretly and, we fear, strongly, It is true that none would suffer more is i simply a question of the cost of labor. Were the United States so foolish as to adopt free coinage, the drop In the purchasing power of our dollar would come at a bound, instead of being spread over 24 years. Our money sys tem would go to the silver standard. A dollar then would buy only about 44 per cent, as much as it will now. Every laboring man would thus suffer an actual reduction of about 46 per cent in his wages, and it would take a dozen years to bring wages- up to their pres ent level. That Is what the Mexicaniza- tion of our currency really means to the laboring man. Toledo Blade. POLITICAL DRIFT. tTA year ago the supply of money in the United States, outside the treasury was supposed to be $22.63 per capita and now, $23.33. This is a healthy sign of the times.

Iowa State Register. 1 E7"The republican party, as against all wild and disturbing cries for the free coinage of silver without the advice and consent of any other nation, includ ing ratiocination, will stand on the plat form of the gold standard. This is the only national policy in finance which can secure for the country safety at home and respect abroad.

Just as thousands of wage- earners "swiped the tariti" in gieeiui haste in 1892,and repented in four years of doleful leisure, so now, we fear, there is a desire to "swiipe the corporations." But the bankruptcy of half a dozen great corporations would entail a panic that -would be felt acutely in tDe tarm houses of Nebraska The conservative campaign of edu cation must not flag. The infinite dan gers of a debased coinage, a bunurupt railway system, a dependent judiciary last four months, with November esti mated, were $90,348,000, which is about $7,000,000 more than was brought in by the Wilson-Gorman act during the first four months of its operation. This is a particularly good showing for the present law, for the reason that im porters he'.d back to await the new and lower Wilson-Gorman duties, while the exact reverse was the case when the Dingley act went into effect.
