The Gold Democrats in West Virginia
will not support the free silver nominees
of the Democratic party in several dis
tricts. General Kitchener is experiencing
Borne of that adverse criticism which has
been hurled at the victorious American
officers. It seems that fault finding is
The slayer of the Austrian Empress
gets a life sentence and will not be per
mitted to talk to anybody. Undoubtedly
this is the most effective punishment
that can be imposed on an anarchist.
The silver Democrats of Maryland
have nominated a candidate in the 1st
Congressional District in opposition to
the regular Democratic nominee who is
a gold man. This is the beglnlng of
what may be expected in other districts
throughout the country before the elec
tions in November, as the Democratic
party is not willing to be committed to
a gold standard. They are essentially a
silver party at 16 to 1.
The analysis which the Southern press
has given of the Cuban situation con
firms the wisdom of President McKinley
in recommending to Congress inter
ference on the part of the United States
rather than the recognition of Cuban
independence. Many of the most proml
nent Democrats of the South are go
ing on record in favor of the policy out
lined by the Republicans in Congress
under the advice of President McKinley
in his message.
The total coinage of silver dollars un
der the so-called free coinage of silver,
from 1792 to 1873, was only $8,031,238.
For the fiscal year ended June 30, 1898
the total coinage of standard sliver dol
lars was $10,002,780 or $1,971,542 more
than for the eighty-one years under
which the country enjoyed the blessings
of free coinage. And since 1873, that 1b,
from Feb. 12, of that year, to June 30,
1898, the total coinage of silver dollars
has amounted to $497,692,446. That is
the answer of the Republicans to the
charge that they are enemies of silver.
What does free and nnlimited coinage
mean? It means that everybody will
have his stock of the cheaper metal coin
ed into dollars which receive the govern
ment's promise to make up the defken
cy of their intrinsic value, while he sells
the higher priced metal in the market
In this manner individuals control the
coinage both as to quality and quantity,
while the government should control it
and say what metal and how much
shall be coined. The government, in
order to control coinage and circulation
must buy the bullion and coin it on its
own account.
The opposition to the suspension of free
coinage in 1873 came from the bullion
brokers, just as the hostility to limited
coinage at present comes from the mill
ionaire silver miners. Mr. Gutherie,
Secretary of the Treasury under Presi
dent Pierce, bad ordered the mint to re
ceive sliver from private individuals and
coin it. The bullion brokers thereupon
collected onr silver dollars, which had a
nominal value of 100 cents and took
them to the mint and had them coined
into minor coins. Two silver dollars
yielded not only four half dollars, but in
addition wonld give a dime and almost
half a dime, or about seven per cent pro
fit. From $250,000 to $1,000,000 were
made in this way.
In the present day the proposition is
for the people to authorize the great
mine owners to take their silver to the
mint and have it coined without a cent
of expense. They then propose to have
the right to exchange their silver dollars
for Treasury notes. These notes are kept
at par with gold by the government, and
an examination of the Treasury reports
shows that there have been redeemed in
gold since 1893 Treasury notes to the val
ue of $92,574,618, while a very much
smaller sum amounting to only about
$45,000,000 has been redeemed in silver.
In other words the bullion owners want
a gold dollar for their silver, but want
the people to accept their depreciated
silver for what it will bring in the mar
ket. If anyone doubts this let him read
the bill offered In the Senate by Senator
Stewart of Nevada in 1893, which receiv
ed the support of the silver forces.
Several of the populist conventions
have declared against the issue of bonds
to conduct the war, on the ground that
no bonds were issued during the civil
war, and Populist candidates are telling
the people that they refused to vote for
the war revenue act because of this fact
It this is not deplorable Ignorance it
cannot escape the charge of being will
ful deception. There were issued from
July 17, 1861, to Mar. 3, 1865, bonds to the
amount of $1,090,361,100, bearing Inter
est in coin at the rate of five and six
percent. In that time altogether eight
bond issues were authorized, independ
ent of temporary loans, certificates of
indebtedness, one and two year notes
and compound interest notes, aggregat
ing an additional total of 11,190,561,787.
46. The issue of demand notes and
greenbacks amounted to but 1456.252,858.
29 in the aggregate, whereas ttie total
debt of the United States, less cash in
Treasury on October 31, 1865, was $2,
39,596,758.80, almost entirely growing
out of the expense of conducting the
civil war.

Important Change In the Child Labor and
Truant School Law.
Thinking the public should be con
versant with the law relating to the em'
ployment of minors, and the compulsory
attendance of pupils at the public
schools, we have thought it timely at the
beginning of the school year to publish
the law enacted last winter amending
the former law relating to the employ
ment of minors and to truancy. The
amended act is know as the Davis law
and is as follows:
"Section 1. Be it enacted by the Gen
eral Assembly of the State of Ohio, that
no child under the age of thirteen years
shall be employed in any factory, work
shop, mercantile or other establishment,
directly or indirectly; and no boy under
fifteen years of age, and no girl under
sixteen years of age, shall be employed
at any work performed for wages or
other compensation, or in assisting any
person employed as a wago-earner, when
the public schools In which district such
child resides are in session, providing
this act shall not apply to females work
ing at household work.
"Section 2. No minor under Bixteen
years of age, and no girl under eighteen
years of age, shall be employed at any
work at night-time later than seven
o'clock In the evening nor earlier than
six o'clock in the morning, and no minor
under eighteen years of age shall be
employed inany of the places named in
section one of this act for a longer period
than ten hours in one day, nor more than
fifty-five hours in one week; and every
such minor under eighteen years of age
shall be entitled to no less than thirty
minutes for meal time at noon, but such
meal time shall not be included as part
of the work hours of the day; and every
employer shall post in a conspicuous
place in every room where such minors
are employed a printed notice stating the
maximum number of work hours re
quired in one week, and in each day of
the week from such minors, such printed
notice to be furnished by the chief in
spector of workshops and factories, and
approved by the attorney-general; and it
shall be the duty of every employer of
minors to keep a correct record of same,
which shall be open to the Inspection of
the chief and district Inspectors of work
shops and factories, giving the name of
each minor employed and place of birth,
residence of parents or guardians, and
the character of employment engaged in
by such minor, and such record shall be
corrected whenever a change occurs in
the employment of such minor.
"Section 3. Any person or corporation
who shall employ any minor contrary to
the provisions of this act, or who shall
violate any of the provisions thereof,
shall upon conviction be fined in any
sum not less than twenty dollars nor
more than fifty dollars, or imprisoned
not less than ten nor more than thirty
"Section 4. It shall be the duty of the
inspector of workshops and factories to
prosecute all violations of this act, when
the same shall come to his knowledge,
before competent authority, and the
chief and district inspectors of workshops
shall have authority the same as is in
vested in the truant officer of any school
district to enforce school attendance of
any child found violating the school
laws, or he shall make complaint of such
violation to such truant officer, or to the
clerk of the board of education in said
district; and all fines collected under
this act shall inure to the benefit of the
school fund of the district where the
offense was committed.
The State School Commission, in com
menting upon the Attorney-General's
interpretation of the above law, says,
"First That boys must go to school
nntil fifteen years of age, and girls (ex
cept when working at household work)
until sixteen years of age; and
Second That inspectors of workshops
and factories are empowered to co-operate
with truant officers in the prosecution of
violations of the provisions of the Davis
law." The household work referred to
implies that it is work for which com'
pensation is rendered and not merely the
assistance In home duties such as parents
require of their children.
There is ample reason for this state
ment of the law in the Enterprise, as
already this year our truant officer has
been called upon to help some of the
parents see the duty they owe their
children in regard to attending school.
The above law is a good one, and the
attention of our Board of Education and
of the Superintendent has beon called to
its enforcement in Wellington, as far as
it pertains to truacy, andit will be
They l'ana a lteitolution Favoring a
Special Levy for Road Building.
There is a growing sentiment In Lor
ain county that the county should not
be behind other parts of the State In the
improvement of its public roads. This
sentiment was manifested by an earnest
and intelligent representative company
of men composed of the trustees of a
large number of the townships in the
county, and a number of others, who
met in the grand jury room at the court
house on last Saturday for the discussion
of the subject. Three years ago the town
ship organized an association for the
purpose of conferring together in regard
to a more uniform system of road super
vision, and have since held annual meet
ings. For the meeting this year, the
president, Mr. F. D. Warren of Welling
ton township, after consulting with othor
trustees, decided to make a more ex
tended movement for the subject for con
sideration and invited the representa
tives of the press and other gentlemen
to be present. In response to the invi
tation, Mayor Levngood and A. R. Web
ber of Elyria; Mayor Fauver, N. Huckins
and A. G. Comings of Oberlln, with the
editors of the Republican and Democrat
of Elyria and News of Oberlin were pre
sent and joined with the members of the
Association in the discussion.
By section 4758 of the revised statutes
of the State of Ohio, quoted in the News
of September 23, and subsequent me-
tions, "the county commissioneas of any
coucty when they become satisfied that
the public interests of their county
demand and justify special action for
the improvement of the roads therein,
etc.," are authorized to levy a tax, of not
exceeding four mills on the dollar after
submitting the question to the voteis of
the county, for the improvement of cer
tain designated roads. It was along this
line that the discussion was pursued, re-
sultinein the unanimous endorsement
of the project by the passage of the fol
Resolved that the county commission
ers be requested to take such action as
may be legally necessary to bring about
a vote of the county at the next April
election to determine whether the county
shall undertake the construction of free
turnpike roads between the incorporated
towns of the county, and upon such
other roads leading to the towns as may
be deemed wise by the commissioners.
