ENOS GRAYr la the W«M ou li' BCVH la SII Casselton, N. D., Oct. 27.—To The Forum: We are told that the commis sioners of the great commercial nations are favorable to a f-atio of 32 to 1 for silver. How did the wise body come to fix upon that? There is no silver surplus. England" wants' several mil lions of ounces to coin, for India. Ev ery Ounce Corned on the continent of Europe passes for reat mdney at ratio of isVs to I, and every country, save possibly France, wants tnore. Sup pose they were to agree upon 24 to i# do any of them think silver bullion would not be worth that price next morning? If paper money has no value except through its stamp and it passes at par, whdre comes in the great fear about silver? It never fell in value un til the nations repudiated it, and then when it bega^ to fall it dragged every property, except interest-bearing notes and bonds, down with it in the same ratio that silver fell that is, gold was appreciated until when silver had fal len 50 per cent it was found that it re Kjuired twice as many pounds of wheat or cotton to buy a dollar as it required before the nations, following the advice of those who held most of the world's interest-bearing securities, repudiated half the real money of the world. Are thes2 commissioners afraid to acknow ledge at this late day that the demone tization of silver was a robbery more gigantic than was ever before perpe trated upon the world's poor and the great middle class, with their little money and their work combined, are tryirtg to live? Most of the bonds are paid off, principal and interest, gold is increasing vastly faster than silver, still with all that can be obtained of both,metals, the nations are forced to issue vast amounts of paper money in order to carry on their halting business. Paper money with nothing behind it except faith in the power of the respec tive governments to redeem it. It is just thirty years since silver was demonetized, since the nations stamped upon it, declaring that it was so plenty that it had ceased to be a precious metal and-was a mere commodity like beans and potatoes but still there is no surplus, and China alone would like to buy an amount equal to what all the mines of the world have supplied in those thirty years, and that would give her but about $4.80 per capita for her people, while ours are clamoring for more money, though our per capita is $27/ Is it not time to cease hiding in the closet or under the bed when this silver ghost is conjilred up. There is not .a man on that commission, not one from the United States or Great Brit ain or France or Germany or Russia who. does not know that with the ratio fixed at 24. or even 16 of silver to 1 of sold, the commodity price of silver bul lion would,follow .the money price and be flhe saitie all" arSlind the world with in twenty-four hours—that is, where ev^er the telegraph reaches. Why, then, do they fix upon 32 to*x? It is to enable certain combines to pur chase the silver product of the next two.or three years and then reduce the ratio one-half that theft purchases mny double in value. It surely has that look Why do they not sound the alarm and point out the menace which hens' eggs are to the world? Last year mining in the United States was prosperous, but the whole amount of silver mined, if coined at the old 16 to 1 ratio, would not pay for the hens' eggs consumed last year by the people of this repub lic. Why is the American hen per mitted to ply her nefarious trade with out censure, while a perpetual embirgo upon and the robbery of the American miner is called "necessary statesman ship?" ENOS GRAY. RECORD DEEDS. Pembina Pioneer Express: Editor Willson of The Pink Paper finds in looking up the records for data ii\ the construction of his new county map that very m&ny people have neglected to have the deeds which convey the lands to the occupants and present owners recorded, and calls attention to the danger of this neglect. Some people don't realize what the real val ue of recording a deed is they seem to think as long as they have the deed it self, that is all that is necessary. There are two dangers that are avoided by recording deeds one, that if the-deed be lost or destroyed that there is a le gal record which is of equal value as the original, that can rarely be lost or destroyed and second that the former owner cannot, either by error or inten tionally, deed the land or mortgage it to a third party without the third party having legal notice that the land has already been conveyed. If A sells or mortgages land to B, and does not put his deed on record, and afterward A sells or mortgages the same land to C, and puts his deed or mortgage on record, then will find that he will have a lot of trouble and likely a law suit to prove his ownership, and under some circumstances may find that has thte best title. As long as the deed re mains of record in the name of A, the ownership is presumed to be in A and the abstract of title will show it 19 be so. We say as does Brother Willson. you had better record your deeds. If a deed has bfcen recorded, it will show the certificate of such record on the Outside of the document. If you Manitowoc, ^4stera stra have doubt whether your deed is recorded or not loofc for the certificate perhaps you may. be surprised to find that the certificate is not there.. good business Some- very men deeds. forgpt to record DIRECT CONNECTIONS AT Union depots are made at St. Paul ani$ flmneapoli? bv all trains from Pacini $Qi|it and northwestern ooints with th# sin Central Railway, thus af a comfortable and convenient £&» RAILROAD NOTES. ROW OVER ELEVATORS. The Great Northern Co. has started an injunction suit against the Farmers' Independent Elevator Co. in Benson County, to enjoin the construction of an elevator on the company's station grounds at Niles. Without the formal ity of a permit the elevator company is charged with starting the construction of an elevator on company ground, work on which has been stopped until, the suit, in court is disposed of. In McHenry County the elevator company built an elevator just off the Great Northern right-of-way, and up to date the company has declined to build a spur started a mandamus Ac tion agaihst the Great Northern to compel the construction of a spur track to its elevator at Denbigh.

Young Van Hul was employed in the boiler shops of the Great Northern. He was put at work rolling out flues. A flogging hammer which he used split and a piece of steel entered his left eye. The eye was removed, but his other eye also became affected, and he is now almost totally blind. His mother, as guardian, sued for $30,000. The jury brought in a verdict for $14,400, and Judge Bunn denied the company's mo tion fo,r a new tfial.
