Gallipolis, Dec.- It The bacterio

hosnital for two days prior to the re

revealed nothing of a poisonous na

dent's unequivocal, positive and reiter
ated declaration that this is -a gold-
standard nation, that all our money
must be maintained at a par with gold,
nd that it will be so maintained under
all circumstances. 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,

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

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

"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

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, 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

It may be that the desire to confiscate

of states and cities by payment of
creditors in 50-cent dollars, and to make
the federal judiciary the tool of a mob

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

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
