THE STOCK OF GOLD. Almn.t One-lliilf of llm Unlit In the Uiilind Htxtim Trenail? Unions o Hanke anil Corporation.. The npffrcffiite quantity of gold In the United States treasury lit the close of business on October 27 was $451,477,404, the largest single gold fund in the world. This sum is di vided In the following accounts: Gold reserve IlfiO.OOO.OOC In cusli balance 88,725,1)05 Held against gold certificates... 212,751,4! Total $151,477,404 One year ngo the nggregntc gold in the treasury amounted to $;i7!),617, 810. Commenting upon the condition of affairs, the Kansas City Star says: "In connection with the Btrong con. ditiou of the suvings banks it Is in teresting to note that the gold fund in the I'd I led .States treasury reached the high water mark of 4&'a million dollars yesterday. '1 his is the lunrest gold fund In the world. The bank of France fulls 14 millions short of it ItiiMslu lias only 10.1 millions and the Hank f Knglaiid 10S millions. The great national banks of tho world, outside of the United States contain about 1,580 million dollars In gold, so that the treasury fund is more thnn a fifth of the whole ofllelal stock "Of gold and silver together the government treasury holds the enor mous sum of more than a billion dollars. While part of this Ib offset by certificates of Indebtedness in the shape of currency, the vast ncciimuhi. tion of coin and bullion in the nation al vaults at Washington is an obee.t lesson to the world of the strength ol this government." Iu relation to this matter it may be remarked that not only is utmost the entire stock of nilver held in the treasury the property of tho people at large, being represented in circu lation by silver cert iflentes, but also, as the above statement shows, nearly one-half of the gold In the treusury vaults belongs to the owners of gold certificates which represent It in the money circulation of the country. As a matter of fact, the government ' owns only $2:iH,723,m)5 of tho amount of gold In its possession. Wlnh It God Sperd. I notice by the daily press that Profs, llerron, lleinis, Wills and others are to establish n college that will bf owned and controlled by people who differ with ltoekefcller in what it proper to teach in the schools. I wil venture that if they do It will have more pupils than any school in the United States Inside of two years from the time it, is open, if It can furnish them ncconimndntions. Appeal tc .Reason. NuMonnl hankers borrow money of the government nt one-half of one per cent, a year interest. They get tho use nf $t,imi 12 months for $5. The populists would huve the govern ment loan money to the people and not to the bunks.--Missouri World. INITIATIVE AND REFERENDUM Any Hints Cnu A.lopi lliet l.rBieUtUia II ll Wlh in llii it. Sou 111 lhlM 111(1. Wo do not know of any better way of explaining the Inlllativu and refer endum than by giving the mihslunco of the constitutional uiiiendiuciit adopt ed lit the 1H1IH elect Ion. Tim InlilnilTM. Tho ll mend men t provides that whin five per cent, of the voters petition tha legisluturu to pass a law, the legisla ture must pass ft und submit It to a vote of the people, and If ll majority of thu peoplu voting on the law vote for it, It becomes a law, but if the majority vote against It it is null und void, The law may be drawn by any person. This is called the Initia tive. Till K.'friiilinit. When the legislature on Its own motion passes u law, then such law shall not go in force until u certain length of time lifter Its passage. If before that date five per cent, of tho voters of, tho state petition that such luw be submitted to u vote of the people, the the law will not go In force until voted on by the people, und if lit audi election - a majority vote uguliist the luw it will be void und of no effect, but if a majority vote for it., it will bo valid and' binding. Tills is called tho referendum. Certain InwR which must necessarily l;o Into Immediate cl'iVct uru excepted from the referendum, Thu Impnrntlve Mniitliite. The peoplu now eleet a man to office for a certain term and after he gets in lie cun hold on until his time is out unless he Is Impeached, which is a alow process, and he cannot be impeached for failure to carry out promises,' In case of u lawmaker he can go back on every promise he mado to get elected nnd ftlll hold until his term la out. In the case of (irover Cleveland's second term, n large ma jority, probably three-fourths of the people, no longer wanted him us pres. idciit within six months after he was inaugurated, and yet lie held three und half years longer. Under Imper- ntive inundate the people cun end an official's term whenever they wnnt to, They can recall any ollicer any time. It is believed flint the Initiative and referendum and Imperative inundate would not often be used as the o di cers, with this power in tho people, would generally represent the wishes of the people. MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP. Tk City of Chloo In I'rcprln for right to I tin Dmtli whh Street Hallway Moniipollea, The Clilciiiro Chronicle says: "The bills which the municipal street rail way commission proposed to intro duce at the coming session of the state legisuuture us the result of scv ernl months of exhaustive study of the truction question lire pliictically completed. Their phraseology may be amended by the city's legal experts before they are introduced, but the essential details have been decided upon by the commission. "The first measure wi.. be one con. ferring upon tho city authorities the specific right to own und operate street railways. Under Its provision the city will bo empowered to nego. tiute for the purchase! of the present street railway plants within the city limits or us un alternative to build an entirely new system. The money for thus purchasing or building street railways to be owned by the miinlei pality is to bo raised by Issuance of bonds within the specified limits, lie fore such bonds can be issued the question must be submitted to a vote of the people. "Tho second measure provides for municipal ownership of n comprelien fllvo system of down town subways. It confers authority upon the muni cipality to build tfie subway system on a bond issue and like the other bill, makes an afTrinative popular vote necessary before such bonded debt can be incurred. The net result of the mu nicipal street railway cominis! ion's la bors is thus the adoption of the prin ciples of municipal ownership und at the same time the adoption of t he referendum principle, "There are bare outlines of two eluboratcly worded measures with which it is proposed to commit the city to nn aggressive street railway campaign nt Springfield next winter." Cn-operMtlvA Iri.urttiire. Five years ago 100 Kansas farmers started a mutual insurance com puny to protect themselves against tho ex tortion of insurance barons. To-day there nro 4,500 members insuring $2, 600,000 of property for themselves, Last yeur the losses paid were $5,158 or a little over $1 a year per mom ber to insure his house, barn mid cat tle from fire and lightning. The state could do it even cheaper than that, but lots of people prefer to pay cor poration Insurance companies $4 for each $1 of losses, just to maintain the individualism of well for the corpo ration owners. Appeul to Itcasou. The Coming Air, Did you ever Btop to think flint It is the profits mude out of you in one wuy or nnother thut builds railroads, every big warehouse, every store house nnd most of the residences of large cities? Well It's a fact, now if wo could save those profits and use the money to build railroads und houses for the people and let them own tin-in in common, all the Interest on that invested capital could be saved nnd our expenses would be thereby proportionately reduced, nnd we could go on und on building nnd Improving for the benefit of the peo ple instead of for a few as at present.
