13 level. If, therefore, It ware practical to doviao a plan for pre&erving the vahie of paper en a level wlih t!iat of gold, with out making it convertible into coin at the ple&aar of tho boMtir, the heavy ex ponrxj of a metallic currency would bo saved. It appears therefore that If there were ior!!Ct security that th j wr of Issuing would not to abun;d, that It la being laaued la each quif.ntltic a m to pro- Berve Ita value relative! to tho miiJ of circulating commodities nearly equal, tho precious metalii miht be entirely d!a peoaed with, not only as a circulating medium, but tho an a standard to which to refer the value of paper." J. II. Mc- Culloch in commenting on the princfplta of money Bet forth by Iiicardo, of Kn gland. Why did our greenback! doprfldate during the war? They were legal tender except for duty on Imports and intercut oa the publlo debt, which had to be paid ia oola. Ia 1871 John Sherman uU; "I fcoyo no doubt It would greatly ndvanco the greenbacks if they were allowed to bo received at the custom houee.".. Ia 1379 they were bo allowed and reus on par with gold. The $00,000,000 paper money not having the exception clause al ways were on par with gold. "Jn tho course of a few days the price of coin haa riaen from J1.G0 to (2.83 In paper to one of spoclo, and then foil In a short period to 11.80. It La quite apparent that the solution of the problem may be found in the unpatriotic and criminal efforts to raise the price of coin regardless of the Injury of the country." Wm. T. FeBsendensocretary of the treasury, report If we had no epecie money could we settle a balance of trade that , might be aglnst us? " "It appears to me that "the lnfluencca attributed by many able writers in the United States to the depreciation of the paper currency, aa regards Ita effects on the foreign trade of the country, ia In a great degree purely W.glnary. An ad vance in the Bcale of prices, measured In gold, In any country, If not shared by other countries, will not effect lis foreign trado, giving an impulse to importations and checking the exportatlono of all commodities other than gold. A similar eflect is very genorally attributed by American writers to the action on prices of the greenback Inconvertible currency. But it may easily be shown that this la a complete illusion. Foreigners do not Bend their product3 to the , United fliatcs to take greenbacks In exchange. The return they look for la either gold or th9 commodities of the country; and If thena have rlen In price in proportion as the paper money has depreciated, how ihould the advance In paper prices coottitut'e tn Inducement for thorn to Bend their goc!a thither? The nominal gain la green backs is exactly balanced by the nominal loss when those greenbacks coma to ha converted into gold or ccmmodltlaa. The gain may, In particular c&oca, exceed tho loss, "but if It does, the loss will alao, in other cases, exceed the gain. On . the whole and an average they .can not but be the equivalent of each other."Prof. Cttirnea, of political 'economy chair of. University College of London," in his work, "Some Unsettled Question In IV Htical Economy." Increasing the value of currency would enable the laborer, the farmer, the small bueines man, property holder tho debtor to pay oft the publlo debt, their private debts with Icon labor or loos cf the products of labor than ctherwirie, would it not thu3 bring a loan to the large capitalists? But did they kindly think of you when they were buying your representative,!, "like bo tainy cattle In tho maroC,M to contract tho volume of currency that yourdMt burdena might lx taawn?l you Impoverished and they enriched? His their prn;nt loua net Wen more than brJ.'.noed by previous jnlcs? However, to show that they will not loco wbRt thy claim, I will quote from a report mi to to the Uoltod Btata Senate tn lBW by 11 11 T. Hunter: MOf all the great effects produce! upon human socloty by tho dlacovery of Amcx ica, there were probably none so marked as these brought about by the great In flux of the precious metals from the new world to the old. European countries had been declining under the decreasing etock of prwlous motala and appreciating standard of value; human ingenuity grew dull under the paralyzing Inlluence of dclinia proflia, and capital abnorbed nearly til that should have been divided between It and labor. Rut an Incrcane of the precious mctalj, la such quantity as to chock this tendency, operated as a new motive power to the machinery of com ineirco. .Trciltictbuwiii eilmuhted by Cndlag the advantages in the change of standard on1 its bide. Instead of being repress! by having to pay more than it had etlpu htod for the use of capital, It waa stimu lated by paying lees. Capital, too, Was benefited, for new demands were created for it by tho new uses which a gonral movement In In duntrhl pursuits had developed; so that If it loot a llttlo by a change in the stand ard, It gained much more by the greater demand for ita uao, which added to its capacity for reproduction and to Ita real value." Granting that wa need enough, money in circulation to do the builncan on a cash basis, how much per capita is needed? t According to tho very bast authority 93 per cent, of the business is done now with paper checko, etc., and we have in actual circulation about $.1 per capita, according to Mr. Dunning; hence we need about 1100 per capita our advanc lag civilization and business will sustain It When our country enjoyed Its great est degree of prosperity, when times were good, labor fully employed at remunera tive wages, everybody happy, contented and prosperous, we had about $00 per capita. France has more gold, elver and paper money per caplU, each kind considered separately aa one money, than the United Btatfla, Germany and England combined, and hxa jjlvea tha world a lecaon on fl nance worthy the careful consideration of every tun cf every nation. Great CttlajaL'JUra Ivive been predicted as cer tain to UCx.ll Franco on account of Ita expanded currency, but it haa paid Ger many n Indemnity of 11,100,000,000, cciak la the Tanama ctnal scheme $100, CC3,C00,'tindoomj to the rescue of En gland a faw weeks ago with a loon of $15,000,000 at 3 per cent Interest, there by Bavk'g Europe from a financial revol ution. The United States monetary commis sion of 1377 well says: "Money Is the vltillzlng Influeuce of Industry, the very fibred -social organization, the proto plasm of civilization, and as eenential to its eiliteaco as oxygen is to animal life." The question now la, will the great maauea of our peopla keep fighting each other's) Intereuta by voting far the old parties, both of which are owned and controlled by the money power, the Im perial plutocratic party, that like Na poleon the Groat, crowned and sceptered itself king, caying to the republican and democratic parties, "fight the campaign r- 1 1 '. 8 n mmi atul Ura t it oxiikuUkiJu-a Vt tt' ttA 'IUo IkrM -lv !i'c-lt'l lMtnt IJbmrr wont or VDJnirV,n, 0.

The time will soon bo at hand when farmers will get their harneeees in shape, a:d the principal article to look after will bo the horse collar. It ia very f nien tial that this article ehould ,nct ha neg lected,as upon a well fitting collar de penda not only the comfort of the horse, but the omouni of work you will cet out of him. In -this connection we call at tention to tho "Spooner" collar, which has been on the market for several years, with tho sales increasing annually. As Is usual in such canes, where buc ceBB has crowned an ortlcle, eome un scrupulous dealers are handling an imi tation, which is not only an Infrlngment on the "Spooner," but ia made of much inferior stock, and cannot give the Batis factlon that the "Spooner" does. For the information of all consumers, we call attention to the fact that all gen uine "Spooner" collars have a "Trade Mark," which consists of a 'Spoon" and the letter "K" stamped on the bolly of the collar. None are ' genuine without this trade mark, and consumers should not allow any dealer to decolve them by palming off some other collar on them as the 'wnooner." If your dealer docs not handlo the Hnooner have him order them for. you from the raanufacturerrwhoaj advertise ment appears in this paper.
