Having had the management of this paper to look after during the last thrve months, we have become thor oughly convinced that a newspaper . .nnt h ODerated without money.

That part of the Preaident1 message, which referred to Uaban af fairs has been severely criticised by the Spanish Press, and all officers of the Cuban army have signed state ments against autonomy, and renew ing allegiance to the Cuban cause. It is to be hoped that Congress will take such action as will convince the Pres ident of the error of his ways. Vice-President Hobart found he had jumped upon the wrong man, the other day. when he theattned Senator Foraker with party discipline, if he did not Btop hia friends fighting Han na'a re-election. Foraker called the "bluff," and declared that he would not descend to boaaiam, and that such of hia friends aa were opposing Mr. Hanna'a re-election no doubt had good reasons for so doing and he did not propose to dictate to them what courae they should peraue in the matter.

Any recital of recent currency expert' Mices would be imperfect that failed to call attention to certain anomalous fla sal troubles that have lately befallen the people of one of the negro states of west- urn Africa, and which have not yet id into history to an extent that (hey merit Aa is well known, the governments if the leading states of Europe, with view of increasing their commer cial advantages through the acquire' ment of new markets, have, within i comparatively recent period, greatly to creased their territorial domains and government in and over what is regard ed as uncivilized Africa. Thus the Brit ish government is rapidly occupying a vast tract of territory geographically known as Nigrita, from the circcm stance that it is traversed by, or is con tiguous to, the ancient and once myste rious river Niger; and one or the Klgri' tian kingdoms that has most recently, and after considerable fighting, passed under British rule and European ideas and enterprise, is that of Nupe, which through a considerable Arab population ia to an extent a commercial country and to whom the advent of the English was probably not unwelcome. The cur rency of this kingdom and its popula tion was mainly slaves, with, inleren' tially, slave babies and children serving as subsidiary money media. It might alao perhaps be inferred that white babies would be considered a counterfeit circulating medium and octoroons bimetallic. The carrying round of two or three babies to make change would certainly be rather difficult, and when they cried it might be regarded as on account of inflation. But anyway a serious financial difficulty is reported to be impending in Nupe;foras the British government does not sanction or tolerate slavery the interesting ques tion has naturally arisen, What are the people of Nupe going to do for money, or rather for curreneyf Will a party arise, as in the United States, who will manfully contend for the maintenance of the "dollar of their fathers?" Will not some "Nupean" Bryan set forth in fitting language the wickedness of the demonetization of former Nupean currency? What better use can (senator sel ler make of his disauisition on the benefits that accrued to the ancient Spartans, when they substituted, iron money in place of their former cattle, cow and pig currency, than to send a large number of copies of it for general distribution on the banks of the Niger! How the heart of ex-Senator Peff er ot Kansas must rejoice at the historical j vindication of his axiomatic financial principle that "it matters not of what money is made or what its intrinsio value is!" Would it not be the part of wia dom for President McKinley to in struct his monetary missionaries, after they have got through with their search in Europe for information about cur rency around the tables of royalty, to journey forthwith to west Africa, visit Nupe and learn from the Nupcans their opinions as to the effect of cheap money, contingent on a successful slave hunt; and also whether their former money had not much to commend it by reason of its remarkable properties for (leg) circulation? It certainly could not have staid long in one place without watch ing. David A. Wells in Harper's Weekly. W. L.
