There is enough grass in New Mex ico to feed several million cattle. Optic. Albuquerque Citizen: (jov. Thorn ton, in addition to making an address at the irrigation congress, will be in vited to formally open the territorial fair with one of his best speeches. A great vote taken by the New York Mercury upon the question, "Shall the United States government open its mints to the free coinage of ailver without waiting for agreement With Great Britain or any other Euro pean nation and at a ratio of 16 to 1." In 8 weeks' voting the totals for free silver was 32,052 and against 1783. There was no canvassing and the New York city, Brooklya and New York state vote showed an immense major ity for silver. The OoHstitntian, Atlanta, Ga , says that the counties of Georgia show aa enormous decrease of values since the experience of the gold standard. The first year it was over 23 millions of dollars and this year will be much more. This is the result of the gold policy experienced everywhere. In our small way we are suffering in spite of all our efforts to go ahead. This issue we print the report of val ues ia our county as assessed for '94 and '95. It will be seen thi t the val ues have decreased. That the scarci ty of money, through the exclusion of silver, causing the general depres sion and the closing of the silver mines, is the direct origin of this fall in values there is no question. Our near markets have lo3t their purchas ing power, and the enormous cost of transportation of our produce to more distant markets militates against their profitable sale. SIGNS OF THE TIMES. Gold ie the sinew of war. The posi tion of the great money lenders of the world U that almost of arbiters of war and pease. The men who are most experienced in the signs of the times are people like the Rothchilds, with whom the lords and rulers of nations on tne eve oi, or in expectation ui, Reward.

The Missouri Democratic conven tion, called to take action on the cur rency question, formulated a declara tion with a resolution demanding the free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold into primary or redemption money at a rate of 16 to 1 without waiting for the action or approval of any other nation; also the following resolutions: Resolved, that we are irrevocably opposed to the substitution for metal lic money, of panic breeding corpora tion credit currency, based on a single metal, the supply of which is so lim ited that it can bo cornered at any time by a fen' banking institutions in Europe and America. Resolved, that we are opposed to the policy and practice of surrendering to holders of obligations of the United States, the option reserved by law to the government of redeeming such ob ligations in either coin or gold coin. Resolved, that we are opposed to the issuing of interest bearing bonds of the United States in time of peace, and especially are we opposed to plac ing the treasury of the government under control of any syndicate of bankers and tho issuance of bonds to be bold by them at onormous profit, for the purpose of supplying the fed eral treasury with gold to maintain the policy of gold monometallism. Silver Democrats. Memphis, Tenn., Aug. 5. Senator Harris, on being asked concerning the conference of blmetallists in Washing ton, August 14, said that letters had been received from representatives of about twenty Ave states announcing their purpose to attend the conference. It would undoubtedly, he said, by a representative conference of Demo crats and its action would be of the greatest importance. It was intended to be the first step toward a thorough, complete and systematic organization of the Democratic bimetallists within tho party and with a view of influenc ing party action. Silver Democrats in in every state in the Union, he said, should see that there is a fair repres entation sent from their respective states. Senator Harris left for Wash ington yesterday where he will be join ed In a few days by Senator Jones, of Arkansas, and other senators who are co-operating with him in bringing about the proposed conference. necessary to enable them to defend their land or carry devastation into the heart of an enemy's country. The power of the nation's money lenders is greater now than at any previous time in the world's history. The im mense masses of men handled with all the skill of modern war tactics, the immeasurable superiority and cost of medern weapons, ships, and appur tenances now used by contending ar mies and navies, with the gigantic commissariat department, will natur ally ethaust sums that will assume immense proportions. The credit of a nation is the most important factor in her power as a belligerent. A treasury well filled and with the pos sibility of rapid replenishment through the usual means of loans, infers the possession of the first essentials to a successful campaign. Repudiation of debt might suit an overburdened nation, but it would also mean a dissatisfied, perhaps a starving army, and this signifies de feat. Again, are the signs of the times in accordance with the preservation of peace? So often have the author! ties prophecied war during the last few years that it it beeoming the old cry of 'Wolf to us all; but there are signs and circumstances throughout Europe and the East that may well cause un easiness. We find that Russia has no longer an emperor who insists on peace. She is left in the hands of un certain statesmen; whilst the czar is absolutely non commital in his policy. Turkey is un inflammable point in the diplomatic structure. Armenian dif ficulties and Russian designs may in an instant start a conflagration. The Kiel canal, it in claimed, increases the strength of the German navy two fold. Her fleets are nearer France. Russia and France entered the Baltic side by side on the occasion of the Kiel celebration, a significant friend ship. The Chinese difficulties, the new and important position assumed by Japan, the war indemnity loan dif ficulties and intriguing: whilst even the United States talke a little of her Munroe doctrine when confronted by actual or supposed British acquisition all these have a bearing on the peace of nations. There may be, however, a cause of danger even nearer home, an element marked well by the money holders and lenders, a power hardly slumber ing, seething in its force like chained elements ol a volcano, at any moment an eruption carrying death and de struction to the people. The antag onism existing against the money power everywhere, the hatred of the masses against the coalesced power of capital, accused by the people of yielding over them the authority of absolute tyranny, the right of inaugur ating an epoch of poverty an autoc racy against which there is no appeal. The people are acousing capital of causing all the unnumbered woes of poverty and serfdom They aocuse it of contracting the currency and enhancing the purchasing value of gold. To enhance the value of gold and take from silver its value is to give the great money holders oppor tunities to corner the gold. Gold is a small bulk. It can be held in vast quantities without requiring a great urea for its preservation. Gold is the chief sinew of war. The collecting to gether of enormous masses of gold, tho coneentration of wealth is being effected. There may be a vital reason for this. The omniscience of the world's financiers may warn them of the existence of a. danger that may be averted and subdued by the possession of tho all powerful weapon, gold. The impoverishment of the masses may be effected for the purpose of their disarmament. In case of an up rising gold may mean the crushing force of armed hirelings, the subdu ing of the people, their relegation to the position of nonentities, where the destiny of eountry is concerned. ' The Rothchilds of the world may know this, may have felt for long that their tenure as arbiters of the fate of nations is but slender, should an en raged people risj in revolt; and this great issue of free coinage, this cor nering of the gold, may be a signifi cant proof of the knowledge that a watchful and suspicious capital has of the revolutionary slons of the times, of the discontent of a vast majority of tho people. These money issues may be the result of the plans of the lead ers to hold the power which has been assigned from all times to the posses sion of gold, Loughran, Principal Examiner, Bureau of Pensions.
