Inflation -"What it Does Not Mean.
St. Loris, July 23, 1875 To the Editor of the Globe-Democrat It behooves the people to know what flation means and what it docs not infl mean. This thev will never learn from .its advocates. Alwavs whea men seek I '.' ""'i'" l" Vli u " et the aid ol the law in "their themes of ! 1U 1 1U Promises to pay oi the company spoliation, they arc obliged to conceal their real intentions under a false name. It would not -do to give a bill providing for an increase in the volume of a re dundant sum! depreciated currency a ti tle truly descriptive t)f its character, purpose and effect. Thi, lor instance, would not be a good title : "An act, to authorize every debtor in the United States to retain for ids own u.-e a certain part cf the money justly due to his creditor, without the consent, of said creditor, and without danger of the pains and penalties of fraud1 X-.r this : "An act to postpone ! "s . Iuu:in Ul'11 nw indelbntelv the Ittlillment of ihe gov- fr tm; l,oor V. et- -ornmenf';'solemn pledges to redeem its J?,st h trary. I here is 11 noto in com. fortius: "An act to perpetuate a system of currency that subverts justice, establishes injustice, legalises robbery, -enriches the lew at tlie expense of the many, degrades and pauperizes the masses oftiie people, debauches the pub lic morality, and carries the nation back oward b; I'lai-ism.' These titles would tell .people some wholesome truths about an inconverti ble currency , but they would not suit the purposes oi the inllationists. They cannot afford to tell the truth about it. They would be compelled to use words round which cluster unpleasant associa tions. Legal plunder is as hateful to men in general as extra-legal, when they see it clearly. It is necessary for the success of the schemes of the inilationists that the people hall not see their true nature vlearly. So the authors ot these schemes strive to mystify The subject by the use of fahe and misleading terms terms which not only do not suggest the plun der th'-y have in view, but ' which sug gest uit the opposite cfl'ect. Tims Jiey sugaieoat the pill which they seek X ) lWce down the throat of the people They will put their bill ft.TW.ird under i a Ctle this : An act to relieve the distress of the people by making mcney' abundant aud cheap." That, sounds benevolent and fair. 1 s in perfect accord with the 'Miatei'lial ' thorv" ' irovevnment the theorv of Mr. Justu.- Schwab, : gentleman cap tured by the police in the Communistic ,ler;.!tis'rat!ons in New York some two i irs agn. 7ur. Schwab thought (so he toa the Police Justice on his trial) "that even man sliould defend tlie goveru TTtcnt, and the government should pro vide lor every man."" But lei nef'tht! people be tooled with Jal-c names. What wc want from the government is not p:ip, but justice; not 'rcU-l', but freedom. Least of all the kind of "relief that inllation would gie the relief of reckless and chronic debtors and unscrupulous speculators at the expense of the honest and industri ous masses. That kind of "relief too much resembles the "relief" given by the highway robber to his victim, when lie unceremoniously "relieves"' him ot his superfluous cash. Jnilation means no "relief" to any class or clashes of men, except at the expense of some other class or classes. It means the "relief"1 of debtors at the expense of creditors. It means the "re lief of speculators at the expense of legitimate business. It means the "re lief of capital at the expense ot labor. It nieans the "relief of the rich at the expense of the poor. It docs not mean that money is to be more abundant, or the money market anv easier, or the rate of interest any lower. Strange as it may sound, it is nevertheless a scientific truth that it is utterly impossible to increase the amoiiii of currency in the sense in which the inflationists use the words when they clamor for "more green backs.1' They may keep the greenback mills running day and night. They may i-suo ?.h Hill's two thousand mil lion dollars and then multiply that sum bv ten. 'I nev may ilood the COUlltry witli "money until it takes a .sioo to buy a pint of peanuts and a 81,000 to pay lor a cheap dinner;; and yet money will be no more abundant than before. Every increase is soon swallowed up by the rise of prices, ami then it is as scarce as ever, and its deluded votaries are yelling for "more.' Yet, in spite of this truth a truism to every student of political economy, and so evident that any man not a victim to tho fatal delusions of paper money can see it if he will but apply his mind seriously there are men among us yelling for more irreenbaeks, on the ground that there is not enough currency to do the business of the country! But, even ad mitting the scarcity of which the- com plain, their clamor is senseless. They know, if they know anything, that a de cline of prices is as sure a remedy for a .scarcity of curency as inflation is. They know, if they know anything, that a dc cline in priees, so far from being unde sirable, is absolutely necessasy, if we ver hope to return to a specie basis. The part of wisdom, then, is to let a scarcity of currency work its legitimate effect, work its own cure, force a decline -of prices, and so bring us nearer to a solid foundation. The true remedy, I repeat it, the true remedy for a scarcity of currency is not "more greenbacks," but it is a decline of prices, which will carry us nearer to the bedrock gold, the only foundation so the inexorable tates have decreed and tlie high gods ordained on which we can ever build au honest and endurable prosperity. Tiflt?-n rinps not mean nn innrnnin ol the wealth or capital of the country, 1 or of any man or class of men in it, ex cept at the cost of some other man or ela.ss of men. It is astonishing the hold that this delusion lias on the public capable of seeing at a glance 1 !ar" oultl )c preposler ouster the in- dividual ?toekiiolders ol a corporation I . ,-v- .4 4.. ... 1- 4.1. 1 .. 1 x. issued to the members. men canable i of seeing clear through so thin and stu-1 pid a trick as that, are vet victims to the I delusions that the larger corporation, j known as the tinted Mates, can increase j the wealth of its stockholders, the peo- I pie, by issuing to them its promises to pay by going in debt to them, and then taking them to pay the debt! If does not mean a stimulus to legiti mate business, as so often claimed. Xo business is ever stimulated by inllation except reckless and unscrupulous spec ulation. - It does not mean that monev will be It means no cur.-e. that blights the prosperity of the Inher ing classes like an inconvertible curren cy. They are. fooled with a trilling ad vance in their wages. They do not ?ee that this advance is more than counter balanced by the advance in the prices of all the necessities and eombnis of life for which their waires are expended. The, do ..t see ihat for every dolku the j leiral tender currency puts mtneirpock- i ets, it takes two out. Iut they will sco it some day, and then they will curse the blind leaders of the blind, thedema- ! gogues that are seeking to fa.-ten upon i ihe country as its permanent policy tin.- j monstrous aud barbarous system of eur- 1 renev. u i:i .iom: .

A. SCI LUSTER, 21 South side sy me, Savannah. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, For Diseases of the Throat and Lungs, euoh as CoukIis, Colds, Whooping Cough, Uronchitis, Aathina, and Consumption. Amonp the prent difcoveries of mod- .cru science, few nro of more real valuo to mankind than ftliis cllectttal rcm edv for all disenfcs "of" tho Throat and Limps. A vast tri al of its virtues, tliroughout this and other countries, has shown that it does surely and efiectuallv control them. The tes timony of our hest citizens, of all classes, es tablishes the fact, that Cheiiuy Pectokal will find docs relieve and cure the afflicting disorders of tlie Throat and Lungs beyond an other medicine. 'Hie most dangerous affec tions of the Pulmonary Organs yield to its Eower; and cases of Consumption, cured y this preparation, are publicly known, so remarkable as hardly to be believed, were thev not proven beyond dispute. As a rem edy it is adequate, on which the public may rely for full protection. By curing Coughs, the forerunners of more serious disease, it save unnumbered lives, and an amount of EulTcring not to bo computed. It challenges trial, and convinces the most sceptical. Evcrv family should keep it on hand as a protection ngainst the early and unperceived attacks of Pulmonary AffecMons, which are easily mot at first, but which become incura ble, and too often fatal, if neglected. Tender lungs need this defence; and it is unwise to be without it. As a safeguard to children, amid the distressing diseases which beset the Throat and Chest of childhood, CuEitiir Pectokal is invaluable; for, by its timely use, multitudes are rescued from prematura graves, and saved to the love and affection centred on them. It acts speedily and surely against ordinary colds, securing sound and health-restoring sleep. No one will suffer troublesome Influenza and painful Bron chitis, when they know how easily they can be cured. Originally the product of long, laborious, and successful chemical investigation, no cost or toil is spared in making every bottle in tha utmost possible perfection. It nthy be confi dently relied upon as possessing all the vir tues it has ever exhibited, and capable of producing cures as memorabla as the greatest it has over effected. PREPAEED BY Dr. J. C.
