someof the flotsam from tbewreskof France,
as all believed that great people lost—also
demoaitiaad silver. Coincident therewith
the production of that metal was largely
tncreased here; Another lobby waa organ
ized, and to deprive the people of any
benefit which might flow front the cheep
ing of silver, it was dsmoaitized here- If
by a combination of circumstances, politi
cal add providential, silver fell iu price

Silver was again remonetised, as waa fair,
and just, as the people were justly sntltl
sd to profit by its abundance.
Ths men who labor, to still further de
press values, by forbidding a silyer eur
rensy, whether intentionally, or otherwise
are taking their place as oppressors of
labor. It is all very wall, for rich offioials
whose lines of life, never cross a working
mans threshold, to talk of honest money
while they orates.—poor man starves.
In England they have "honed money."
Well what of it ? A telegram from Lon
don a tew days ago announces a reduction
o ten per cent- In miners' wages in Cleve
land, England, and states that the Oldham
cotton masters have refused ths request of
the operators for the Dostponement of a
similar reduction there. A lookout i* also
threatened by lbs Clyde shipbuilders un
less the reduction they propose is promptly
submitted to by their workmen. When
*uoh reductions of wages are announced m
this country, they are explained by the
Itatement that we are getting back to the
normal standard of value from which
inflated currency had floated us away.
This explanation will hardly hold good
in England, which has not departed from
• hard money basis for more than half a
century past; yet reductions of wages
about as frequent there as here, perhaps,
even more so. There is, however, good
reason to believe that in England, as well
as here, the fall of wages is largely due to
a change in the standard of value. The
demonetization of silver in Germany and
elsewhere,together with its partial demone
tization in the Nations of ths Latin Union
has caused a greatly increased competition
tor the limited supply of gold, and caused
l hat metal to increase in value as compared
with other products of human labor. As
each grain of gold in the dollar is worth
more lhan it formerly was, ths same must
also be true of ths dollar itself, and all the
values measured by that coin must
vuently decline. Tbs decline in wages is
more than proportional to the rise in gold;
for the latter, by augmenting tbs volume
of debts, has caused businesa embarrass
ment! and failures, deranged trade, obs
Btrpcted industry, and by diminishing the
demand for labor has brought into opera'
tion another cause for the decline in its
price- This indirect result of the demon*
