He Will Not Drown Himseil.
(Prom the Troy, N. Y., Times.)
R- W. Edwards, of Lanslngburgh, was
prostrated by sunstroke during the war
and It has entailed on him peculiar and
serious consequences. At present writ
ing Mr. E. Is a prominent officer of Post
Lyon, O. A. It.. Cohoes. and a past aid-de-camp
on the staff of the commander-in-chief
of Albany Co. In an interview
with a reporter, he said:
"I was wounded and sent to the hos
pital at Winchester. They sent me to
gether with others to Washington a
ride of about 100 miles. Having no room
In the box cars we were placed face up
on the bottom of flat cars. The sun beat
down upon our unprotected heads,
when I reached Washington I was In
sensible and was unconscious for ten
days while in the hospitaJ. An abscess
gathered in my ear and broke; it has
been gathering and breaking ever since.
The result of this 100 mile ride and sun
stroke, was. heart disease, nervous pros
tration, insomnia and rheumatism; a
completely shattered system which gave
me no rest night or day. As a last re
sort I took some Pfjt Tills and they
helped me to a wODueital degree. My
rheumatism Is gone, my heart failure,
dyspepsia, and constipation are about
gone and the abscess in my ear has
stopped discharging and my head feels
as clear as a bell when before it felt as
though it would burst and my once shat
tered nervous system is now nearly
sound. Look at those fingers," Mr. Ed
wards said, "do they look as if there
was any rheumatism there?" He moved
his fingers rapidly and freely and strode
about the room like a young boy. "A
year ago those fingers were gnarled at
the Joints and so i-tiff that I could not
hold a pen. My knees would swell up
and I could not straighten my leg out.
My Joints would squeak when I moved.
"I cannot begin to tell you." cald
Mr. Edwards, as he drew a long
breath, "what my feeling is at pres
ent. I think if you lifted ten years
right off my life and left me prime
and vigorous at forty-seven I could
feel no IjL'tter. I was an old man
and could only drag myself painfully
about the house. Now I can walk off
without any trouble. That in itself,"
continued Mr. Edwards, "would be suffi
cient to give me cause for rejoicing, but
when you come to consider that I am no
longer what you might call nervous and
that my heart is apparently nearly
healthy and that I can sleep nights you
may realize why I may appear to speak
in extravagant praise of Pink Pills.
These pills quiet my nerves, take that
awful pressure from my head and at
the same time enrich my blood. There
seemed to be no circulation in my lower
limbs a year ago, my legs being cold and
clammy at times. Now the circulation
there is as full and as brisk as at any
other part of my body. I used to be so
light-headed and dizzy from my nerous
disorder that I frequently fell while
crossing the floor of my house. Spring
Is coming and I never felt better In my
life, and I am looking forward to a busy
season of work."

Junk-tliri Trips.
The Dolphin will he luisy this summer.
Slic will start to-day, .with Assistant Secre
tary McAd n a trip to embrace the naval
reserve stations.
Starting from Baltimore, the ship will
touch at all the northern ports where head
quarters of the reserve are. The cmlse will
last about thirty il ays and may extend to
some of the southern ports. The Dolphin
will later take Seoretary Herbert on a trip
to the naval stations of the north, Includ
ing New York. Bolton, Newport and Ports
mouth. There Is no regular station at Bar
Harbor, hut the ship will go there neverthe
less. She will reach Newport when the sea
son Is at Its height.
The Register believes that official inspec
tion by the naval authorities Should he made
in a vessel of the navy. This is Hie proper
course. Hut Is not the practice being over
done and too mncb government coal con
sumed on junkets? Is the duty to he per
formed commensurate with the outlay, or
could It not he discharged as well anil much
more economically by going by rail? These
questions naturally arise, and they will oc

John.V. Farntll, Replying to Comptrol
ler Eckola, l'olnts Out the Need of In
ternational BlmetaUlim to Restore
Lot Values of Property.
(J. V. Farwell, in Chicago Record.)
The comptroller of the currency
joins the secretary of the treasury in
the campaign of educating the people
for the next election. Evidently, polit
ical fences need mending to control the
masses for the gold interest and the
Democratic party.
Do they see the handwriting on the
wall of history "Weighed in the bal
ance and found wanting?" Does not
tho wisdom of the centuries weigh
facts and make their arguments short
weight? Time will tell.
It is indicative of imperfect "hind
Bight" that this discovery has not been
made in the present discussion by gold
men of its relation to money standard
and prosperity. The ultra-gold men
are just as wrong as the ultra-silver
men, as both are practical monometal
lists, making half equal to the whole,
and, therefore, radically wrong. This
discussion before it is closed will find
the people, whose votes both factions
are seeking, on the side of interna
tional bimetallism, and both the great
parties will be compelled to make that
the chief plank in their platforms.
Comptroller Eckels did make one prac
tical suggestion, viz.: "We must take
things as we find them practically
and not sentimentally." Nothing is
more certain than that, and I will an
swer this statement with another:
What was practical and beneficent for
centuries can be made practical on the
same lines by the same means now
and may we not add, that if both met
als were needed to keep values at par
before our country became so marvel
ously wealthy in property through her
fostering of domestic Industries by a
protective tariff, thus making her raw
materials into tangible and exchange
able values outside of gold and silver
would not both metals as money now
increase her power to develop and In
crease her marvelous natural re
sources? Our silver-producing states are a
Gmall factor in this problem; our prop
erty interests combined constitute the
larger factor in it; our annual hay crop
exceeds the product of silver many j
times, and the annual additions of sil
ver to the accumulation of all times are
perhaps as 1 to 100 of the accumulated
and annual additions to values in
That silver Is still used and held up
to gold value by France and the United
States is only an argument strong as
can bo made of the need of more legal
money and of the folly of not giving
silver everywhere full money functions,
so that its commercial value can again
be relied on as its coinage value.
Its coinage now having been stopped
entirely by all governments which had
any power over the question before
1S73, the money demand for it has been
legally destroyed, and what interna
tional bimetalllsts demand is that this
mammoth wrong shall be righted. Mr.
Eckels' reference to our coinage in the
past, in its bearings on prices in con
nection with Mulhall's statements of
our marvelous increase in wealth for
over twenty years after our industries
were put on their feet by an enforced
war tariff, and his query as to why
prices have shown the same tendency
in Europe as here down clown in
order to prove a rise in the intrinsic
value of gold, entirely Independent of
demonetization of silver, is most in
genious, but equally erroneous. This
argumentative query is fully answered
by the fact that the cost of gold in
labor since 1873 has been reduced fully
as much, if not more, by improved
methods and machinery in mining and
reducing ores and cheaper transporta
tion of ores, than that of other prop
erty; and the attempt to hide this fact
and charge all decline in prices of sil
ver and other property to like causes
Is not honest argument. This opinion
may be honest with some. With prac
tical otudents of ability It cannot be
It claims all things for itself and de
nounces others quite well, but it de
nounces most wrongfully the conten
tion of all property-owners, including
silver owners, that legislation in favor
of gold is chargeable with the decline
in all prices, and that gold should be
made to share in it as well as prop
erty, instead of grabbing a 100-per cent
advance as a virtuous and Innocent in
crement of value, which they claim the
God of righteousness by natural law has
brought to their coffers, instead of Its
having been dono by their own legal
tools in the parliaments of the world.
Mr. Eckels' reference to the part
played by bank credits as a substitute
for money is as old as demonetization,
and his own experience with banks a3
to what they coud do in the line of
making deposits of money credits (and
not money) play the part of real money,
when the people lost confidence in ideal
money in 1893, should havo made his
"hindsight" more reliable as an in
dorser of methods invented as a neces
sity to serve the uses of money in pros
perous times, but which in a panic, as
he knows quite well, proved to be only
"straw bail" for the huge gold criminal,
which had stolen these values in 1873.
As it did not improve his backward
vision he kindly quotes Mulhall to show
an intrinsic and not a legal advance in
gold since 1873.
Commercial value is another "old
chestnut" raked out of the fire of the
discussion by a government official to
give it a gold burnish. It is not gen
uine, and even his official plating of it
will not make it a genuine article in the
voting market. The change in the bul
lion or intrinsic Value of silver or gold
since 1873 can by no official or other
necromancy be divorced from legal de
monetization of silver as the main
cause making a double demand for
gold by destroying the demand for sil
ver, except for the arts and its pres
ent use as token money does not alter
tho general principle involved in that
creation of new money and property
conditions, by a law which abrogated
the natural law of labor cost, both for
money and property. The testimony of
Lewis Wolowski (whoever he may be)
before the French money commission
of inquiry of 1S65 which he quotes
only intensifies the justice of the cor
relation of all values through (by his
formula) "a measure of values which
shall be stable during the periods which
embrace the transactions of men."
That is, which shall not give gold an
advance and property a decline as
legislation has done if he means to be
squarely honest in his formula.
Mr. Eckels brings out another "old
chestnut," "overproduction of sliver."
Why not talk of the overproduction of
population and property? These must
go on Increasing or the law of prog
ress will be reversed.
Should not legal money increase rel
atively to property, and should it not
be allowed to do so In the last twenty
years, the same as before, to be just to
other values created by labor?
This question cannot be honestly
solved by the continued ri3e of gold
only, which must be revealed by a look
at the future through an honest "hind
sight" telescope, such as Mr. Eckels has
given us in his Mulhail quotation of
American progress.
Again, Mr. Eckels should remember
as the answer to his final statement
that "we as debtors cannot dictate to
England" that honest bimetalllsts are
only asking of our congress what Eng
land's business interests are now ask
ing of her parliament, and that tho
Dank of England directors are now
heading the list of a 100,000 campaign
fund to put practical bimetalllsts at tho
head of her government in the next
election in order to give to the world
international bimetallism.
I therefore again quote his statement:
"Let us deal with all facts as they are."
To make money facts and property
facts what they should be and not con
tinue a world-wide wrong because ig
norance or fraud or a combination of
both have made these present facts
what they should not be. Thus present
facts are now commanding tho prac
tical attention of industrial and money
interests here and abroad in a warm
canvass for votes to be given for or
against their continuance.
Ex-Congressman Cheadle's vigorous
argument in the Record that the United
States alone can restore the commer
cial value of silver by free coinage at
16 to 1 for tho reason that all other
countries before demonetization kept
its value stable by its free coinage is
tantamount to saying that a fraction
is equal to the whole in financial arith
metic. It is only two and two that
makes four here and elsewhere in sil
ver legislation. One leg is not equal to
two in the law of locomotion. It only
remains for him and Comptroller
Eckels to join the genuine internation
al bimetallic party to make their fig
ures of speech square with the geom
etry and arithmetic of scientific mone
tary figures. They will be welcome to
this cosmopolitan party of progress and
That party only can win. If either
gold or silver alone wins they will lose,
while if international bimetallism wins
we all win and we will all be happy
when what wr.3 money for centuries
and is money with us again will bo
money everywhere ounce for ounce
and pound for pound. Then the abnor
mal production of cither metal, as an
annual addition to the existing volume,
will scare no one, and whoever raises
such a ghost hereafter, with such his
tory as the last twenty years have
made, will be considered only as an
other argumentative thief trying to
spoil our "hindsight" after, instead of
before, such an experience.
It will be easily seen that the able
argument of Mr. Calvert in the Record,
and, in fact, of all the writers on that
side of the money discussion, are in
tended to convince voters that more
legal money Is not needed that legis
lation cannot create a demand for sil
ver that will restore the lost relations
of gold and silver to alj other property
as a measure of It, and 'f it did that It
would be repudiation of debts, hence
gold must continue as the arbiter of all
other values, notwithstanding its pro
duction is limited, while that of prop
erty is limitless, and that cost of pro
duction for both has been and will be
constantly reduced. It is also easily
seen that with such conditions con
tinucd the rise in gold and the decline
; in property that must ouly be meas
ured by It, in their coda of financial
morals, will also continue until the
ability to corner all property with a
corner In gold will only be measured
by the disposition of human avarice to
do it.
Shall we increase snch a power over
us all for the benefit of a few, or shall
we compel all values in the future to ba
governed in their exchangeability rel
atively to the changed conditions of
ccsl of production and extent of con
sumption for the whole list of human
merchandise or human luxuries created
by the Ingenuity of man?
Mayor Swift has brought to the light
an object lesson in our municipal af
fairs, which reveals why and how law
makers make bad laws for the benefit
of the few. The very magnitude of our
municipality has created these stupen
dous corruptions, and the colossal pro
portions of the wealth of nations accu
mulated in the present century has
tempted the silver legislation of 1873,
which since then has doubled the ex
changeable value of property for it
over one-half, without any relative
change In the labor cost of each. The
only argument that so great a man as
Edward Atkinson can offer against such
a crime is ridicule, and serves it up to
voters in the columns of the Record.
It shows the strength of the gold cause
in grand style, and I like It a8 a con
fession of weakness. Because barter in
destructible property by barbarians
has been supplanted by a metallic
money system In civilized nations to
effect such exchanges, therefore resto
ration of silver to money functions
would be a barbarian act. That, In
short, is his argument and from Bos
ton! About forty years since I visited a
town in Massachusetts, and in looking
over the official records I found that
the parish minister was paid his salary
by municipal law in all sorts of articles,
one of which was "flip." "Flip," and
not cows, was legal tender in Mr. At
kinson's own state long after tho cow
was demonetized in India. Which ia
the most civilized and civilizing cur
rency? Let bis erudition answer.
That minister very likely got drunk on
"flip;" surely that was a more evanes
cent and unstable money than cows,
and that was in Massachusetts and not
in India.
Dlfllcnlt Problem Resulting from Ambi
tions of the Modern Wife.
We have read with deep interest a
newspaper article on "What Will tho
New Woman Do With the Old Man?"
The writer is a new woman and pre
sumably has an old man. But he is
everywhere, is useful In fashion, has
sincere purposes, and means well. His
fate Is or ought to be a matter of con
cern to every one. The description
does not necessarily imply one who has
become gray and decrepit. He may bo
in the purple bloom of life. It applies
not to his years, but to the order of his
ideas, says Pittsburg Dispatch. Wo
learn that "the new woman wants as
either brother or husband a man who
can comprehend her aspirations, can
sympathize with her and be a helpmeet
to her in their attainment." But what
are her aspirations? Those hinted at by
the writer in no essential particulars
differ from those of the old woman.
Give the old man a chance. Tell him
precisely what those aspirations are
with which ho ought to sympathize.
Many a time has he been lectured for
not understanding what has never been
explained to him. He is confessedly a
trifle stupid. All the more reason why
his duty should be made plain to him.
As a rule he would sympathize with
anything his better half names and
think that purchasing peace in tho
family cheaply. Will the new woman
please state her aspirations fully and
clearly? But, to eome to the question:
"There is nothing left the new woman
to do but to renovate and repair the
old man convert him, if possible, into
the new man. There are many ways
and sorts of conversion. Reason, per
suasion, strategy or even compulsion."
Three of these methods of bringing the
old man to terms havo been long used
with marked success. The fourth is
doubtful. It is said that "he inclines
to pull back, like a mule." He does,
indeed, at times and then compulsion
is the worst of all ways of dealing with
him. We hope the new woman will not
try that. What Is to be done with the
old man in the event of the failure of
all these methods is left to the imagin
ation. What doc3 the old man think
of It, anyhow?
A Humbug Kalninakcr.
Frank Melbourne, the erstwhile west
ern "rain king," whose services were
in such urgent demand in the west two
or three years ago, is located In Cleve
land, Ohio. In speaking of his experi
ence as a rainmaker Melbourne ad
mitted that the whole thing was a
humbug and that he never possessed
any more power in that respect than
any one else. He says the American
people like to be humbugged, and the
greater fake the easier it is to work it.
Melbourne made a fortune In the busi
ness and spent It like a prince.
