It is noth ing nexv. as our republican friends would have people believe. The re publican party demonetized silver, the democrats favor its reinstate ment, and that is what it is contend ing for now.

The laxv of 1873 left cold to be coined as freely as it came out of the earth, but denied this right to silver, thus reducing silver to a commodity. That same laxv destroyed silver As one of the measures oi' value along side of gold, which it had enjoyed since 1702, making gold the' only measure of values: thus sil ver itself was reduced to a commodi ty and its value measured by gold, which now became the only measure.

NO K HA SON WLy Wo Should not JJuve Free Colattge, Kays t'lvsidotit ISen jiUiiiit A?i.iro-,vs. There has been much argument in Napoleon by the republican gold standard adherents to the effect that should free coinage prevail gold would cease t" circulate or xvould find its way to F.tu-opeau countries. To relate such assertions, xve here quote from president Benjamin An drews, of liroxvn University. Boston, Mass., who is undisputed upon politi cal economy. There xvill not lie any Jackson xvho would even dare think of criticising President Andrews in his position from an intelligent point of view, for gentleman of that character never talks buncombe when called upon to answer a question professionally. This is his statement in full taken from the Eti'inin :r of last Saturday. JJostox, June 20th. President E. Benjamin Andrexvs, of liroxvn Uni versity, has written the following letter on the money question to Stephen AV. Nickerson, of Boston, Mass. "In yours of the 20th inst., after adverting to Cernuschi's latest posi tion touching the policy of the Uni ted States in freely coining silver at 10 to 1 without waiting for an intei national agreeement, you ask what, if any, objections I would urge against this policy. I reply that 1 would urge none. The vast nexv out put of gold in recent years, as com pared with that of silver, impresses me that free coinage by us alone xvould not lead to displacement of our gold: that, therefore, free coin age would be safe. "If it is safe, it is certainly de sirable. Of course, no one can be absolutely certain that we could pro ceed with siler free coinage and yet retain our gold. I therefore do not dogmatize, but leave that to the gold men. To my mind, however, the overwhelming probability is that gold would stay with us. I have noticed of late no serious argument to shoxv that it would not." President Andrexvs has hitherto opposed free coinage unless by in ternational agreement. Ship Blown up. On Sunday, July 10th, at Riverside Park, Capt. L. D. Blonell the champ ion swimmer of the world xvill con clude his exhibition of fancy and tricksvvimming by a grand display of firexvorks on the water with the blowing up of a full rigged ship. Do not fail to see this ship as it passes over the Lima Northern R. R. on a flat car enrottte to the Park. Ask L. N. agents for rates and time of train. F. E. Fisher, A. G. P. A. Harriet Bccelicr Stowc's Last Letter. The last thing written by Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stoxve, only a fexv days before her death, was a loving acknoxvlcdguient to the public for fond remembrance and the tokens an d expressions of affectionate esteem, on her 85th birthday, which she sent to The Ladies Home Journal.
