LISHING COMPANY. SIXTEEN PAGES SUNDAY. AUGUST i'O. 1S93. AN HUMBLE APOLOGY. In "The Forum." In yesterday's Issue of this paper, a correspondent, evi? dently In a misguided moment and most tin though ted)y, does a gro->? in? justice to the memory of Washington, Jefferson and Henry, and men of that stamp. Our correspondent brings <>i<t some of their services to the country, their manner of holding office, of seeking of? fice and of always submitting their claims TO THE PEOPLE, and seeks to draw a contrast with the present Vir? ginia statesmen. We would willingly allow, the inci? dent to pass unchallenged but thai these men are dead and cannot Bp nk for themselves. Jefferson and Washington and even Patrick Henry did the best they c >uld, "angels could do no more.'' They were young and inexperienced, or they would never have acted In such an unpolitic il manner. Why should not our present office holders he greater stdtcsmi n an I ect more wisely? Have they not a great leader to organise? Whnl t\l I Washington or Patrick Henry or Thorn as Jefferson, the father of Dcmocra y. know about "managing." Tiny sub? mitted everything to tho people and allowed the people to have their chol e of nominees. Of course, litis Is not pol? itics, but Jefferson knew no better, and It Is not proper nor becoming at thin late day to contrast him with such men as Senator Martin! What did Jef? ferson ever do, that Iris record coul i be put beside that of Mr. Martin? Ali, but It is said that Jefferson and Washington were friends of the pooph and got their offices because the people wanted them. And so is Mr. Martin n friend of the people. Docs lie no! know more about selecting candid ttcs for office than the people! Docs he m in fact, know better than the poop! do, that ho is the most suitable man In Virginia for U. H. Senator'.' In fact, In he not the only man In Virginia, n it an oilicc holder or dependent, that d know he is suitable for the office of II. S. Konntor? As much as we should regret to ico the memory of Henry and his oratory, or Jefferson and his statesmanship, or Washington and his sword, tllmmi i by one greater than they; as much n v ? dislike to feel our veneration for to ? great men of old, falling away, we sub? mit that the State cannot afford to keep Mr. Martin's light under a bushel, In all of which our correspondent wrong. What did Jefferson or Washington ? r Madison know of "organisation?" From whom did Henry get his strength bul the people!! But lure Is one greater than he, for may It not lie said of Mr. Martin, that he and his friends do no) consult tho people, but he actually keepB them from voting!! When he gone, may no scribe dim the rei ord of any other statesman by unfortunate contrasts. Let the bones of poor old Jefferson ami Henry und Washington lie quietly moulding away. Let their memories, as great men, ntill remain with us, and dim It nol because they had no such lender as Mr. Martin and no "organization." They cTld the best they could with the lights before them, and besides, the people ami not th? politicians, run the government and se? lected candidates In'those'days. . . Let ua still think of their Rhn.de? with respect, although if they lived to-day, they might still be childish and unstatcsmanlike enough to submit their candidacy to the people. Although they are slow in ^realizing It, and getting into their proper places, tho people have nothing to do with tin Offices, but to vote. Of course they must yote or be rend out of the party. The Afflce holders of the h-tatc, men of cx perlenco, men who do nothing but hold ofllce, have the (-election of candidates In hand!! They know better than the people and It Is doubtless the able as? sistance of these statesmen that has raised up among us one so great, that like Ajax, he could defy the elements!!! THE BANKS AND BUSINESS. The New York Financier of August Mth tries to keen a stiff upper Up and a ch( erful countenance, for it would be demoralizing indeed 1f the chief herald of prosperity, that has been whooping up a sort of millennium in business, as? sured by immense European and otljer foreign balances of trade in our favor, by vast Inflows of gold from Alaska, Australia, Africa and all cuarters of tlie globe, should now weaken and join the calamity howlers. It is forced t> tell some tlvings, nevertheless, or bo left: and so we learn from it that "the reserves of the New York Clearing banks show an uncomfortably small margin of excess. Chicago, Cincinnati, Plttsburg nnd other cities have been loaning at this centre. ? ? * Bankers are not looking for two per cent, call money, but two :>cr cent, call money is not one of the blessings <>f finance that it is sometimes imagined. This country, with Its great volume of money, is doing a business that keeps in active use every dollar that can be spared, and if the demand -an be maintained, no better augury of tie future should be required." LlUt it Is evident from this that mow y in New York City is growing uncom? fortably tight nnd scarce, and the Financier lias to beurteil its clients and readers by hopeful references to foreign balances and our unsold and future chops. Yet, says the Financier, speak? ing of commctclnl paper: "Toe BUPDly seems to he Increasing, hut the absorption is equal to all new offerings, i: ites are from i'i to 4*4 per c< nt. for best endorsed hills, sixty to ninety days, and from 4'.. to .". and up to 0 per cent- for double names to sis mouths, according to grade." Alluding to the recent Treasury issue of (10,000,000 gold certificates. the Financier says: "The resumption of the Issue of gold certificates di es not of itself add one dollar to the circulating medium of tho country, a fact which a considerable p ;i of the American press finds it difficult to understand. The gold certi? ficate has been aptly termed a ware h use rccclnt for sne-Jle. That is ex? actly what it Is, and while It Increas ts the fluidity of tin- currency, it cannot of necessity add to tho volume ? f ?. f :? the simple reason thai behind each dollar as represented in the certificate, there Is a dotier in gold withdrawn from active circulation. The only effect which the re-issue of this f irtn of i:i mey can hnvc is to relieve the ex? isting demand for a larser percentage of small notes in circulation. It will also increase the facilities of transfer? ence ot money from one section of the country to the other, a matter which at this time and in view of the prevail? ing conditions, is of considerable im? portance to commerce in general." The Vlrglnlan-PIIot some time ago called attention to the fact that this B 'M certificate issue added nothing to out- money or currency, nnd as the smallest of the denominations is 120, it cannot be tiny great relief to the people or current business that need small notes. The Financier confesses or claims that hanks, as n rule, nttended to their own business, and with success, until IS 6, when they Identified themselves with the Republican party nnd th? mi ney moil poly, or trust; but the fact is ilia: he banks were active in pro? curing silver; demonetization in 1873, as they had previously fastened a ten per cent. Federal tax en the Issues of all Hinte tftnks. Nor have they sine,, re? tired from politics, which Is regarded as it permanent pari of their "btisl m ss." Says the Fimmel >r: "Until 1890 the banks hnd refrained from participating In elective contests, but that year witnessed the spectacle of strong hhd conservative institutions arrayed sdlidly against, an assault on the Integrity of Ihe nation's credit; nnd espousing openly and unselfishly a political platform that declared for cer? tain theories end facts which these In? stitutions held to be for the benefit of the i tin try as a whole, nnd not for their particular benefit alone." That is pari of an editorial urging .-ill tin- New York banks to join the Finan? cier and tile Anthracite foal Trust against the use of soft coal in ami about tin? cily for any purp- Win: a. fall is this: from defending "the lh t Rrlty of the nation's credit," to help? ing a city coal-deal! Fie. Financier! your big talk cannot conceal the small motive, any more thnn the selfish venality of IS!'.;, was covered by pre? tended anxiety for the nation's credit, when the bank.? heartily joined in 1873 in tho deal which sold the nation and pc pie :.? the financial und c mmercial Interests in IST*. ??'. 'iNDAY. The day of peace nnd of rest. The day when the body seems to recognize tiie supremacy ot* the s pirit, and, stih dued, rests into a quiet calm. The soul, that nearest to Cod. seems to reach out and touch the Infinite thai has conic down, like a peaceful morning, and covered the earth. Tho very birds are hushed in their noisy clamor, and trip from bough to hough with only a little chirp of happiness. The very trees seem to sway more gently, as if the peaceful spirit of a bi :i tflccnt Heaven bore them tip in its omnipotent folds. All the earth seems subdued; tin re Is quiet and rest, and the soul of mau commune;? with Its God?for it is .Sunday. The plaintive pealing of the bells, so harsh on another day, com.- Mealing in at our windows, with a feeling and a message; and where is tin- soul so dead, or heart so mtltC, as net to be touched by this messenger to the spirit, that leaps out to nicet and u worship its Great or and life-giver? HOW IS THIS r Yes: how Is this? It Is the Irrepressi? ble Inquiry on all lips except those in the plot, and their policy is silence. Yet the Interrogatory occurs: how is this? Here Is tho State Committee, every district and city committee, every county committee, all tho solid? arity of olllce-holders, all the corp3 of oillce-seekcrs, all the sappers and mi? ners, and ?11 the C. II. rings, cross? roads cliques and ward-bosses, and all who fetch and carry for these states? men and patriots?all "have been seen," all tampered with, and the same song has been put into their mouths. And the Index-Appeal and other "bulwarks of liberty "say that all this Is the re? sult of a campaign?an appeal to the people! Never wore a people more astonished than to learn that all these things had been accomplished without their knowl? edge, much less with their consent. Even the "campaign" of 1893, noiseless as it was. was a tornado compared to this felt-shod preliminary march in the dark to capture all positions and out? posts accessible to secret and sub? terranean approach. Not only has the capture and recruiting and enlisting been going on diligently, under the system of bounties, rewards, promises and promotions adopted, but the men have been put through a course of dis? cipline and drill, without tap of drum, that makes the organization more than a machine?an automaton that needs only the touch of the master hand. And this is called a "campaign." "a popular campaign," with tho people left out entirely?not in it, nor of it; they ate only to vote, as they are told. Who is our Virginia Hnnna? or Platt? or Quay'.' or Addicks? Who is our boss? It seems to be agreed on ail sidc3 that it is not Martin: that ho, in fact._js a mere puppet, in the hands of others, or another. Who is this other? Who are these others? Shall we not even dis? cover "the great unknown," who so graciously takes us and our public af? fairs in hand, and may say of Virginia, as Louis XIV. said of Franco: "L'elat e'est mot!" There is no secret of power in this age, however. We know, as well as if we had it in our own pocket, that these strange marvels?almost miraculous? are wrought by money. Don't deny it. gentlemen. Wo see it In your eye, we hear it in your voice, wc feel it In your presence,?ami your whole atmosphere Is rctloli nt witli tho vulgar insolence and truculent arrogance of money mono-metallic and monopolistic money. "Damn the people!" Yes: hallowed be money, and exalted lie its possessors! Wherefore respect Virginia and her liberties, or her people and their rights? We've got tho money, and nothing else Is respectable, or worthy of power. How can the Senate of the United States stoop to the poor concerns of the rabble, when the millionaires and their flunkeys and lobbyists are In waiting? Excuse us now; call later, with the barber and shoe-black! And tiiese mighty men were once our servants, obsequious and truckling ev? n to our representatives at Rich? mond. Representatives! Great God. where have we a representative left? The negroes are tree', slaves are eman? cipated; Senat,".-.-, Congressmen, legis? lators and r.ll our officials^ civil, politi? cal, < r military, are our masters, and we are obsequious Ihralls, unworthy of the freedom the Filipinos arc lishting for and dying to achieve. nnroRiviED robeery. As long as the banks and the money trust enjoy their present practical mo? nopoly of our metallic and paper money, and regulate the volume of our currency,?our money and currency will be manipulated for the special benellt of the hanks and money-trust, and not at all for the behoof of government and people. Can anything be plainer than that statement, or more eolf-evldcnt as a truth? Hut the banks and the money-trust (upon whose control of nuuiey all oilier trusts absolutely de? pend) are malting Btrenuous efforts to extend their power and legitimate their usurpations, by securing from this Re? publican Congress, at Its next ?esston, the passage of a number of acts; among which are the following; an act to withdraw and cancel nil outstanding greenbacks and other Treasury notes, and forbidding till future issues of Treasury notes and bills; an act mak? ing gold coin the only standard money and the legal standard rind basis of value; in act allowing the so-called National Panks to Issue their own notes, unsecured by any deposit of United States bonds, or other security, upon the ere iit of their ass, ;s: and to make all silver coin subsidiary coin, re? deemable in gold, &c. Robbery and piracy, force and fraud, nor false pretence and swingling, with usurpation and tyranny backed by mil? itary power, nor all together, ever had s > sift a snap nor :? > abstritt: ? a despo? tism an tli.se nc:.; will confer in the n.line of "banking and currency re? form." Th.i "Insurrection" is spie: ilng rap? idly, is ihe'sn'osianci . . ...i uhcensored press dispatch from Manila via Hong Kong. Tiie revolt is spreading from Lu? zon to other Islands, and particularly in Cobti and Negros, which, from Presi? dent 8churman's report, were regarded as the most friendly Islands of the wltde group. Leading na? tives in these Island:i and others are going over to the ^reb? els," being sorely disappointed In their hopes of American good government. Tho "Tagal" revolt is infecting all the other tribes, and .-? ion the insurrection cannot bo described as a revolt of crlm ii.al and disaffected Taguls, headed by Agulnaldo, who is Ulsitppoiutcd on a wild ambition., THE TRIAL OF DREYFUS. The cyea of the civilized world, are now turned to the old French town of Rennes. Although Roman, Saxon and Frank have In turn trod Its streets, and Breton rulers once sat In its stately Palal3 do Justice, It remained tor a comparatively ob?cure Alsatian cap? tain to make its name known wherever civilization abounds. The court-martial of Captain Drey? fus Is far more than a national event. France, Germany, Russia and possibly Austria, and Italy are Intimately con? cerned with the outcome of this notable trial, which has grown to be of such importance as even to -threaten the prosperity of the French people. For flvo long, weary years this Alsatian captain, who is now the second time before remorseless judges charged with treason to his country in selling se? crets of the French army to foreign governments, endured on Devil's Isle nn imprisonment worse than death. The famous bordereau bears date August, 1894. ? With the results of the first trial and condemnation of Captain Dreyfus, his lonely imprisonment, the devotion of his wife, the efforts of Zola and the newspaper Aurore in hi3 behalf, the gradual turning of the current in his favor, the tragedies that have marked tho development of the ease, the pub lie is famili?r, The great question is. what will be the denouement'.' Fortu? nately the French government has by its measures with General de Negricr and others of late shown that it is now in stronger hands than when Dreyfus was convicted, and there is slight rea? son to hope that the whole truth may be brought out and only the guilty be made to suffer. Captain Dreyfus has affirmed and reatllrmed his innocence in a manner that carried conviction to the mind of every unprejudiced man. The Anti Dreyfusites will not be convinced, and may be able to again secure Iiis con? viction. For the sake ot France It is hoped not. LIBERTY ITSELF MUST BE REGU? LATED BY LAW. "If trade be let alone it will always make Its own laws?such laws and reg? ulations as the demands and energies of trade require."?Richmond Times. Why trade, trade alone, and nothing else, should be exempt front any laws hut its own, we have been utterly un? able to understand, and though we read the Times diligently nnd careful? ly, wo have never seen one reason given by the Times for any such exemption. The prevalence of adulteration, &c, in all things bought and sold, seems to malte a special demand for the inter? ference of law and regulation. Cane.vt emptor la an old law phrase; but in? stead of teaching that the seller should not be restrained by law and that the purchaser must look out for himself, we think It notes a particular need for in? terposition against fraud. Not that trade and its votaries are moro dis? honest than other callings and people, but because the very natura of the transactions themselves require an ar? biter to decide by positive law the dif? ferences and disputes that must con? tinually arise between what aro us? ually considered opposfto and contend? ing Interests. Why should there be a law against making nnd uttering counterfeit money? ll impeaches the character of no honest man nor institution, but Is their protector against the dishonest So ore laws and regulations against cheating In quality and quantity in trade: safeguards of the just against the unjust; and why should any just person object to them? It costs some? thing. Yes; It costs something to en? force the law against murder; but if there were no statute to secure life, the mutual regard for life, strong as it is, would not establish natural laws suffi? cient to insure It, but quite the re? verse. Rational freedom is defined as liberty regulated by law. In the Interest of science it might be well to ascertain whether the man who laughed all night and could not stop the n< >:t day had been reading Senator Martin's defence of his record as a voter.
