An Abundant Currency Without
Paper Money Inflation.
Tlie passage of Stanley Mat
thews's resolution in the Senate Of
the United States, by the lemark
avble vote of 43 to 22, is memorable
from every standpoint. That reso
lution declares, in substance, that
both the principal and interest of
the national debt may rightfully be
paid in silver coin at the option of
the Government. As the infamous
law which declared that it was
payable in gold cola, only, emu -
nated from another citizen of Ohio
—Garfield—lt is right that an
Ohioan should bave taken a prom
inent part in attempting to correct
the infamy.
We propose to waive all discus
sion of the question as to whether
- not legislation recognizing the
ln * t >»-»(ißdard will succeed iv
getting u3elf on the national statute
book in tbe shape of law.
We also waive any discussion
as to whether Congressional legis
lation would or would not restore
silver to its old and rightful status.
Legislation in favor of silver may
mally result in depreciating its
-Balling and circulating value. The
caprices of finance are inscrutable,
and this, though a remote and not
llkelj contingency, is not an im
possible one, by any means.
But there is another aspect in
Which the re-establishment of tbe
double standard, and the imminent
approach of greenbacks and na
tional bank notes to par, are
worthy of attention. Should the
slight chasm which separates our
paper money from gold be bridged
during the coming year, we would
witness in the United States, with
out any additional paper money
Issues, a remarkable inflation of the
currency—an inflation quite as
great as that outlined by tbe new
Ohio United States Senator, George
H. Pendleton, in one of his ma
turely considered speeches advo
cating an expansion of tbe curren
cy. The figures are not just now
within our reach, but we presume
that, counting greenbacks aud na
tional bank notes, the paper cur
rency of the United States aggre
gates between eight and nine hun
dred millions of dollar?. Should
this currency all appreciate to par,
and should silver regain its old
status, we should be face to face
With the following singular state of
Using*:
For sixteen years gold uud silver
in the United States have been
merchandise, not currency, with
the exception of the brief period
during which our fractional cur
rency has been replaced by silver,
aud that, of course, to a very
limited extent. Practical spe
cie resumption, whicli would
Immediately result from bring
ing paper money to a par
with gold, together with the re
monetization of silver, would di
vest al' this money of the character
,-*jf<^. s .?handise and convert it into
currency. Counting both gold
and silver minted money, there are
probably to-day in the United
States in the neighborhood of four
or five hundred millions of dollars.
This sum, besides, would be stead
ily increasing, both from the large
balance of trade with the outside
world which lias been for some
years in our favor, and from the
unexampled yield of the precious
metals which is now being report
ed from our mines. Within a
year from the establishment of the
hypothetical case we have stated,
we should have a practical addi
tion to tbe curreucy of the Uulted
States of between seventy and
eighty per cent, of its whole vol
nine.
What would lie thu result? First
money would bo easy and its own
ers would be obliged to seek for in
vestment in those *p r ' va te aud cor
pirate interprises which havi
s iinibered for so long a period. It
A'lditinn, tbe refunding of oui
whole natioual debt, at a low rati
of interest, would become feasibli
at a very early day, thus lessening
the burdens of taxatiou.
Second —Real estate aud othei
commodities, every representative
of value, bonds, stocks, mortgages,
etc., etc., throughout the leugtb
and breadth of the United States,
instead of being measured by a cur
rency whose limit is, at the out
side, nine hundred millions of dol
lars, would really he gauged by s
circulating medium of gold, silvei
anu paper, whose volume wouk
have expanded to fourteen or fif
teen hundred millions of dollar.'.
Third—As a corollary of the fore
going propositions, au era of unex
ampled activity and prosperity
weuld probably set in in this
couutry. People would no longer
regard themselves as poor and ai
obliged to practice Ihe most rigid
economies. Tiiey would branch
out, real estate would advance and
a period of "flush" times, ranging
from fifteen to twenty years, would
follow, when the customary revul
sion might ensue. As a net result,
we should have added to the sub
stantial national wealth by ths
progress which would have been
made In a thousand enterprises
which would not have beeu under
taken under other conditions. We
have suffered so long under an
universal languor in development
of every kind that it is at least
pleasant to indulge iv anticipa
tions which, though apparently
extravagant, are by uo means un
warranted by the facts.
At the same time that a little
rough water is chronicled of our
Southern California harbors of
Wilmington aud Santa Mouica, it
should not be forgotteu that posi
tive disasters are reported of the
harbor of San Francisco itself. A
little inconvenience is all that has
so far, in a notably turbulent
Winter, been reported of any bay
below San Buenaventura. It is
much to bo able to say this, and of
itself it conveys a high compliment
to the placidity of our witters.
There has beeu no hint, during the
past severe gales, at either Wil
mington or Santa Mouica, of th*
"breakers inside of the heads"
which have worked such dire dis
aster in the Golden Gate withiu
the past few days.
We are confronted iv Los Ange
ies with the question as to whether
or uo we shall have our streets
lighted. Already the contract
with tha Los Angeles Gas Com
pany has expired. Unloss it is
renewed we shall bo treated to
the spectacle of a city which has to
submit to a large tax levy beiug
without tlie ordinary conveniences
of even the modem village. With
Los Angeles full of tramps and
desperate characters, weeding one's
way home at night without any
light whatever would prove to be
a very disagreeable experience.
We must have light, let it be pro
cured how it may. Of course, we
believe in getting the best and
least expensive terms possible from
tbe Gas Company, but the ne
cessity for street lamps is plain to
the dullest comprehension. In the
original contract with the Gas
Company, we bound ourselves as a
condition of their removing their
works, if we lighted the streets at
all, to light them witli the gas of
this corporation for threo years to
come. Tlie meeting of yesterday
having been without results, we
suggest to the Council tbat they
should arrauge some solution of
the matter satisfactory to a light
loving community. Make the best
terms you cau consistently with
the contract of two years ago, but,
in the language of Genesis, " let
there be light."
It will be seen, by the Sacra
mento correspondence of the San
Franclaco Post, published on our
fourth page, that the Central aud
Southern Pacific Railways are pre
paring to fight the railway bills of
the Transportation Commissioners
to the knife. This opposition
shows how faithfully those gentle
men did their work from the pop
ular standpoint. No one con
tributed more heartily or indefati
gably to both report and bills than
Gsn. George Stoneman, of Los An
geles county, who is tbe President
of the Commission.
LAST NIGHT'S NEWS.

Uulon Telegraph Company.]
Latest Eastern News.
Lamar and ibe Biaud Bill
Washinoton, Jan. 26.—Lamar's
able arid emphatic speech against
the Bland silver bill was considered
the more remarkable because be
represents the repudiating State of
Mississippi, whose Legislature fails
to pass resolutions instructing ber
Senators to vote for the sliver
scheme only because of the cer
tainty lhat Lamar would disobey
them. Senator Conkling's absolute
failure hitherto to declare publicly
or privately his position on the
question is contrasted with Lamar's
outspoken boldness. It is not
thought possible, however, that he
will defy the overwhelming senti
ment of both parties in his State,
yet there are some who are uneasy
about his vote for Bland's scheme.
Texas Paeluo Argument Continued
Washington, Jan. 26th.—The
argument on the Texas Pacific
Bailroad questiou was resumed
this morning before tbe House
Committee en Pacific Railroads.
Storrs having finished his state
ment of the legal points upon
which tlie Southern Pacilic of Cali
fornia desired tbe right to build
through to El Paso, Gov. J. C.
Brown,Vice-President of the Texas
Pacific road, discussed fully tlie
broad general questions which had
governed the polioy of the govern
ment in aiding the construction of
commercial highways. The Texas
Pacific, he said, had built already
445 miles of road, without a dollar
of aid from the government, aud
justice required the extension of
the aid asked for by it, as the Un
ion and Central Pacific Companies
bad received $50,000,000 of bonds
and 53,000,000 acres of land; tbe
Northern Pacific 47,000,00 acres
and tbe Texas Pacific only 18,000,
--000 acres, no portion of which the
latter could receive uutil after it
built one thousand miles through
Texas.
Thomas A. Scott, President of
the Texas and Pacific Railroad,
briefly reviewed the grounds upon
which the government and people
would secure a through competing
line. He showsd that with the
present prices of labor and materi
al and Us ability to
market the bonds of the com
pany at par, which would be
secured by th* Government en
dorsement of tb* interest thereon,
th* whole amount of annual in
terest to be paid out of the earn
ings of the line would be less than
$2,000,000, while the present trans
continental railroad has to earn
more than four times that amount.
Under tlie plan proposed, interest
would be paid each fix month! by
the Texas Pad tic Company, while
the sinking fund would gradually
redeem the priucipul aud leave the
road ultimately without debt; that
under the power reserved to Gov
ernment to regulate rates so as to
take care of the actual capital, these
rates would annually be reduced
to the great benefit of the Govern
ment aud people and that the Gov
ernment alone would save $3,000,
--000 yearly by the building
of tlie road, more than tho entire
interest on the bonds, if it never
earned a ceut. Scott claimed that
the Central Pacific Company had
no Intention ta build a Hue to com
pete with themselves, but merely
offered to build the road to prevent
the construction of the Texas Pa
cific. They were not hound to build
a mile and,if their bill passed,could
simply sit still six years and dur
ing that time monopolize the en
tire traffic across the com i nent and
tax it as onerously as they were
doing now. Without any action
the Texos Pacific Company had
speut $10,000,000 in good faith and,
had it not been for tho panic of
1873, would have had the whole
line nearly completed by this time
aud under the aid proposed would
completo it by the year 1882.
Scott closed with a strong appeal
to tlie Committee to look at the
question not in the light of techni
calities, but on the broad grouud of
of the interest of the whole
country and expressed his convic
tion that every member of Con
gress who aided iv securing this
great highway on a basis just to
the people and the interest of the
Government, as a competing line
between the oceans, would, in after
years.regard it as one of the proudest
achievements of his political life.
Tho Committee theu adjourned
until Tuesday,when the arguments
will be concluded.
Tbe Mixu-ou Cordor Troublei.
Washington, Jan. 25th. —Tho
Texas border troubles occupied the
attention of the House Committees
on Foreign Affairs and Military
Affairs. Major Price, of the Eigth
Cavalry, testified before tho Com
mittee and J. O. Tucker, who was
before the Foreign Affairs Com
mittee (yesterday, testified at great
length before the Committee on
Military Affairs. A large part of
his examination was directed to
show the lawless condition of so
ciety in the Rio Qraude counties of
Texas and that the people in border
towns of Mexico are kept in a good
deal of alarm and in ita
tini) by the swaggeilng officers
of the Texas State troops and
some United States subaltern offi
cers indulging iv wild threats of
invasion and couquest. Tucker
acknowledges furnishing arms aud
ammunition to Diaz when he was
preparing his revolutionary move
ment. He likewise admitted the
payment of a certain sum of mouey
to Ford ou behalf of the Mexicau
Uovernment. Ford has been be
fore the Committee of Foreign Af

border as "Old Rip." He bad hold

he was authorized to raise a regi

Grain nun ProvUloo Market.
Chicago, Jan. 25th.— The grain
market lias beeu excited at times
and unsettled throughout the week,
and dealers have anxiously looked
for European war news. The gen
eral opinion prevails that England
would not interfere and according
ly there was a downward turn un
til her apparently belligerent atti
tude caused a strong upward move
ment, which culminated on Friday.
To-day the lowest price for the
week was current. In wheat the
interest seemed to preponderate
and with the aid of favorable for
eign new», succeeded to-day iv
beating down prices materially.
Sales for February [email protected]<ij coin.
.Manipulators have also kept a
close watch on Loudon corn quota
tions; whilp the corn market has
been less animated and unsettled
than wheat, especially on Friday,
to-day there was a decided
weakening, with sales at M|@4li.
Oats have been dull and unprofit
able in a speculative sense, having
followed tbe course of the others iv
a small way, with sales for Febru?
ary iv.ait- Rye and barley have
been less affected than the other
grains by bull rumors because,
being dependent on the whisky
market for their buoyancy, they
have yielded to the pressure
the shadow which is now resting on
the distillery industry, and have
weakened to i lm lowest prices that
they have been quoted at fur
months.
Provisions bave managed to keep
up prices unusually well under the
heaviest packing business that has
ever been dove heie at this time of
the year, aud, while prices have
been fluctuating and the markets
feverish, the local influences were
the chief ones, aud they have been
such that a drop iv price was speed
ily recovered, while an advance
was slow In falling off. To-day,
however, there was a marked de
cline.
Shipments: Wheat, 098,000 bush
els, corn 410,000, oats 223,000. Re
ceipts for the same time last year:
Wheat 53,000 bushels, corn 479,000,
oats 100,000. Shipments: Wheat
430,000, corn 238,000, oats 100,000.
Here are figures showing that of
these three cereals there were ag
gregate receipts of 1,305,000 bushels
during tbe week, against 650,000
last year, and shipments of 1,387,
--000 bushels, against 378,000 last
year—a state of activity in trade
and of an increase of tbe volume of
business that certainly his never
seen experienced here before at
this season of the year.

New York, Jan. 26th, — The
proposition to put all the New York
Clearing Bank's business immedi
ately upon a gold basis is strongly
supported. It is known that sev
eral members of tbe Clearing
House Executive Committee favor
it. The plan is to agree tbat the
Clearing House shall pass no paper
drawn after some fixed date, which
does not specify a sum iv gold or
its then market equivalent, thus
making gold aud greenbacks prac
tically Interconvertible. The banks
of New Orleaus, Charlestown, St.
Louis, Cincinnati and most of tho
Chicago banks bave indicated their
sympathy with the project as a
means of securing surety against
cheap silver remonetization. It is
urged that the etlect will be to
compel all commercial busiuess to
be done on a gold basis. Nobody
will be obliged to buy any more
gold, us paper cau be received at
its market value. The man who
obtaius a loan or makes a draft
takes tho chauces instead of the
bank.
Sluce the Eastern war

months large shipments of leather,
principally sole, have been made
to Russia and the price lias mate

Th* supply, it is reported, has

failed here. The strike itself has

European Cable News.
A Mti.tcal €orres|Miutleuc.
London, Jan. £G. —Your corres
pondent's prophesies have become
historical. The war has ended.
Russia has triumphed. The Otto
mah power is crushed without
British intervention and peace is
substantially concluded upon terms
which precludes England's partici
pation in shaping them. Russia
also has vindicated the pre
diction that she would so adjust
her policy as to deprive England of
the opportunity for the interference
which Disraeli so eagerly sought.
Since Turkey accepts the condition
exacted it is hardly possible that
British sentiment will tolerate any
proposition for single banded effort
by England against Russia to de
feat either the freedom of the Dard
anelles to the Czar's ships or
Russian occupation of Armenia as
security for the war indemulty.
England can better afford to loan
the Porte the money to settle the
Indemnity than to spend it in war.
If British sentiment fails to see
sufficient menace to English inter
ests In Russian occupation of Asi
atic Turkey to justify that direct
appeal to British pockets, it will
not see anything worth fighting
for at still greater expense. Though
the Czar's terms of peace may at
first seem harsh, the Turk's precip
itate acceptance of them indicates
that he sees how much easier they
are than he would have made if
himself had been tbe victor. Tbe
money indemnity is only one-tenth
of that exacted by Qertnany from
France. Russia's freedom of the
Dardanelles, though apparently
exacted from Turkey, is really ex
acted from England, the ouly Eu
ropean power having any interest
in opposing it. Turkey cares noth
ing for it herself, and the Porte is
doubtless delighted tocoucede what
will annoy au old ally who failed
him iv his extremity. As Eng
land did not fight for the whole
Treaty of Paris, she will not for
the fragment of it. The war is
ended.

A man came into His Chronicle

From Pioche. He was tlx feet high,

"You see, I've walked all the
way from Pioche to git a 'sit' as a

He was informed that the chances
if getting a job as a lighter at tile
tustice were rather slim as the
diners' Union had discharged the
entire gang of both mines. This
information seemed to strike him
like the news of the sudden death
of a bosom friend.
"Yon don't mean to say that they

A WOMAN'S LIFE.
The Bad Career aud Death ot Puiioraena
Jones - Her Lover under Arroit oa a
Charge of Murder.
Tbe Couuty Hospital yesterday
morning witnessed tbe termination |
of a lit* wbicb, i hough its years
were not many, had far more than
the average portion of the misfor
tunes that fall to the lot of woman
kind. Tbe deceased was kuowu as
Pbilomena Jones, aud she was au
unsophisticated girl at sixteen, a
wife and moth r at seventeen, a
" fancy dancer " at eighteen, at
nineteen a deserted wile and the
beloved of a disreputable scene
painter, and at twenty two a corpse,
dead, it is believed by her lover's
hand. Her history began iv L>os
Angeles, live years ago, where she
lived with lier mother In retire
ment. During the visit of a vari
ety troupe to that city she witness
ed the agile i ll oi t s of a vocalist aud
saltatory genius, more commonly
known as a soug and dance man,
by tbe uame of Frank Jones. She
bad a pretty lace and a full share
of the romance that tills the head
of the average woman at that age,
and as Jones paid her some atten
tions, she naturally fell in love
with him. Tho result was that
when tlio troupe left tbe town she
went along with it, having married
Jones without informing her
mother of the interesting fact, She
came to this city with him, he pur
suing his vocation at the Palace
Amphitheatre on Mission street,
and while living here her child
was born. Soon after this Jones
came to the conclusion tbat she
could be
USEFUL AS WELL AS ORNAMENTAL,
And trained her for the stage, but
as her geniii9 was Eoarcely of the
Modjeska type, her schooling con
sisted mainly of instruction in the
art of padding and the mastery of v
few "flash" songs. Not long after
ward he bade her an abrupt fare
well and departed for New York,
leaving her alone witli her child to
support. This she barely succeeded
iv doing, ekiug out a miserable ex
istence iv low class theatres and
melodeons, and finally weut buck
to Los Angeles. There, on her
voyage from bad to worse, she full
iv with a scene painter, one Albert
Ontivieras, who, in 1872, was scut
to San Quentlu furtive years for
burglary. She is said to have be
come his mistress. At auy rate, she
and her child traveled with him to
this city where, about two months
ago, she took a room on California
street above the Adelphi Theatre
and accepted an engagement as a
fancy dancer in tbat place. Onti
vieras visited her at odd times,
coming three or four times a week.
He was evidently in love with her
aud constantly.
IMPOHTUNED HEIt TO MAKKY HIM.
She as constantly refused, however,
saying that she did not want him
for a husband. Finally, a week ago
Sunday night, he cAme to her room
about two o'clock iv the morning.
Slit, was in bed with her child, and
bs sat down on the edge of it, iv
company with a little Mexican
named Meudoza, aud resumed his
demands and threats. She refused
to use some money she had
earned, to obtain v divorce from
Jones, aud, becoming enraged,
he assaulted hvr with his lists
and feet, and wreaked his rago on
her till she was bruised from head
to foot. He also struck tho child,
according to the lutter's story, but
did not hurt it much. The next
morning both her eyes were
blacked and she complained to Lou
Homers, a dancer at Buckley's,who
occupied the next room, of pains in
her neck and head. These grew
worse day by day until sho became
unconscious aud a week agoThurs
day she was removed to the hos
pital, where she died yesterday
morning. The police got
ON THE TRACK OK ONTIVIEKAS,
But did not arrest him till nbout -
o'clock last Suuday morning, at
which time Officers Blakeslee and
Rogers found him iv a low Mexi
can dive ou Cutthroat alley, lend
ing off Dupont street, near Broad
way. Ho was first charged with
assault, to murder; but, upon the
death of the woman, a charge of
murder was placed against him.
