In h recent debute In the lhigllih

of the board of trade, muted that In
had taken It upon hlhixelf to hud mil
what steps the scclelary of the United
State treasury had taken to m fin re
the provision of the tariff net In thto re
spect rtnd that he had found that Mr
Carlisle had taken no steps at all. This
statement was gieeted with laughter,
but that Is a vcrj common thing in
these dajs There nro mole "gilm
smiles" and loud laughs going the
rounds of foreign lounttles, of which
this countiy Is tho butt, than ever be
fore since the chetry ttee episode.
Hut why has .Mr Caill'ie failed to
take an steps toward enforcing the one
good piovMon of the latlff act' Is It
not enough that this cnimtrj should be
deluged with pauper goods without ex
posing the American wage earner to the
convicts of lhiropean commies' Vast
quantities of certain kinds of illy goods
brushes, buttons and Hliiii1.tr ni titles
are made by the faiinetl-oUt convicts of
Utliope, particulate the Atisliallan
'colonists" Hut though the law de
clines that the seeietni of the treas
ury shall take Steps to enfoice their
delusion, no such steps me taken. The
administration Is opposed to "walls"
and "bars" and cveiy semblance of pto
tectlon. In its eyes the fotelgli convict
is a legitimate competitor of the Amet
Icnu workman, for cannot his juoilucts
sell more cheaply than If ho iccclvid
wages and is It not wise to buy the
products which sell the cheapest? Hut
where is the Ainvilcin workman to get
the wherewithal to buj .' Ot what avail
is tho cheapness of the m irkets ot the
world when the workman 1ms In his
purse no moms of piucliaslng the ai
ticles which aio so cheap, and how can
he have this means If lie doesn't get
wages, and how can he earn wages
when lh. products, lie has heiotofoie
turned out aie now bought In Kuiope'
This maiket of the wmld Is a beautiful
theory. Hut it Is a condition which on-

The university Idea ot the money
question seems to bo on the side of
monometallism and monnmetiilIIm
meins gold. President Andlevvs, of
lit own unlversltj, is the latest ot quite
a list of piofesblonnl bookmen to air his
lewa,ijn the subject, and he gives his
reasons for entcilng tho tll-cif-slon by
pictuilug the effect of silver demoneti
sation, as follows
"The evils, which hive spiting ftoin its
1ok ot this character are not tisu,ill ex
aggerated in the West or in) where In
fact, they can Itnidly he exaggerated
X have been dechtring right and
left for yeuis that thfie Is no gre it sup
ply of silver above ground except what ts
owned by the T'nltod htute, but my
neighbors do not believe this"
And then ho proceeds to argue that
"If we take up the metal (sliver) alone
and that couise results, us I "hould an
ticipate, in the expulsion of gold, vo
shall have in the Hist plaeo a financial
crisis worse than any evei suffered In
the country."
Hero we have a sample of reasoning
that may be all right from tho stand
point Of univcisity logic, but it looks
very unlike the logic of common sense
to a plain, everyday business man.
The first pioposltlon Is that the indus
ttlal and business classes have suffeied
Incalculable Injury by the demonetiza
tion of silver, and the mm Is that there
Is no ieai.011 wha level, save the unvvui-
ranted prejudice that e.xlsts among the
gold worshipers, why silver should not
at once Jie lemonctied, for tho United
States owns neatly all there Is on top
of eat th Hut Instead of undertaking to
rcinovo this prejudice he pioceeds to ar
gue that it must bo accented as tho
controlling iutlueiuc in the settlement
pf the problem or theie will be dite dis
aster. He would put aside the iemed which
he admits the United Slutis holds In if
grasp and take up the policy ot tho
gold monopolists, "because we could
not in a lung time, even by working our
mints day and night, coin enough silver
to take the placu which would be va
cated by gold," It silver should be re
inotielUed. Jn other woids, the demonetization of
silver was an Incalculable evil, but to
lemonetUo the meiul would bring In
evitable disaster.
It this is to bo ixeepted as tho uni
versity idea it would be a good thing
