CFFECT ON THE GENERAL WHO COM MANDED AT THAT POINT. I'miWtou Rmla-nd aod Took Karvlro la lAwrr Kouk HU Family War Wealthy Peiiunylvanlaos, and Urn Was DUIulitrltrd When Fie Jolord the South In an address at San Antonio, Tex the Hon. John II. Heagan said: "While I um rpeuking of matters connected with tlieworwhich have not o far as I know, gone into bistort', desire to io nn act of justice to the memoiy of Lieutenant (ieneial John C Pcmberton, who wan in iomniand at V icksburg when that city was surren dereiL He, with the balance of bis com luand, was paroled after their surren der. The great strategic importance of Vicksburg, commanding as it did the Mississippi river, and the loss of which substantially bisected the territory of the Confederacy by the lino of that riv er, was so important and was so keenly fait by our people that it caused deep regret and great dissatisfaction, und many of the ponle questioned the Mel Ity of General Pcmberton to our cause. It is of this that I wish Htsvially to ejcnlc in justice to his memory. "IIo was a citizen of the state of Pennsylvania and a major ( f the feder al army when the war broke out. His mother lived in Philadelphia and was wealthy. Ho believed the peoplo of the houth were in the right and that their cause was just and determined to enter the Confederate service. He notified his mother of his intention, haying to her that be was a military man, and that his ugo would require, him to partici pate in the war, utid that he could not afford t risk his lifo in a cause which he irt-lievrd to be unjust. His mother protested ugaiust this course and threat cued to disinherit him if he insisted in it. "You may well understand vrhat trial it must have been to him to refnsi to comply with his mother's wish and to separate himself from bis own met ion of the country, greatly the stronger, and unite with the weaker wet ion, plac ing his life at stake because of his con scientious conviction of duty. Ou his merits as an officer he rose to the rank of lieutenant general in the Confederate service, and on account of the confi dence of the president in his ability and fidelity to our cause be was put in com mand of the important military position of Vicksburg. "After he was exchanged as a prisoner and released from his parole I was with President Davis in his oftioe when Gen eral Pcntbertoii called on him and stated that the discontent on account of the fall of Vicksburg hud destroyed his use fulness in high command and made it proper for him to resign his commission of lieutenant general, which he then did, and he asked to be assigned to the rank of lieutenant colonel of artillery in the regular amiy of the Conf cderacy. The president, with expressions of sym pathy and regret, accepted his resigna tion us lieutenant general, und he was assigned to bis line rank of lieutenant colonel of artillery. This was the only instance during the war of an officer voluntarily resigning a high rank iu the army und asking for service in a lower one. "Not long after this General Butler, iu command of the Federal forces, mov ing a portion of the army from the south to the north side of the Janies river, with u large force attempted to capture the city of Richmond. Our line of works in front of him was defended by a number of siege batteries and by infantry. The principal attack was by field batteries on the hue of the Wil liamsburg road. Lieutenant Colonel Pcmberton was in command of our bat teries, which covered that line or ap proach and in the immediate front of the Federal batteiies. Colonel Preston Johnson of the president's staff and I, ou hearing the heavy firing, rode out to where we could witness tho contest. We saw Ptniberton standing on the parapet of the battery on the Williams burg road, fully exposed to the most terrific fire of shot and shell, giving di rections to his command. - Seeing this, we feared that the disaster at Vicks burg aud tho criticisms to which he had been subjected werecausiug him to seek relief in death. This supposition may havo bvn unjust to him, und his pur iKise may simply have been to encourage his comrades. "On my return from prison in 1865, in going from Richmond to Columbia, S. C, I met General Pcmberton on the cars at Greensboro, N. C, and learned that he, too, was going to Co lombia to soe Mr. Trenholni, tho late secretary of the treasury, his object, as he told me, being to try to borrow mon ey from Mr. Trenholni to enable him to get on a farm as a meiuis of support to his family. I inquired of him if ho un derstood farming. He said he had no experience in farming; that he had no profession but that of engineer, and that there was no opening for him in that line, and ho saw no other way of supporting his family except on a farm. He was then iu a destitute condition financially. I said to him that I under stood his faimly iu Philadelphia was wealthy and asked him if they knew of his condition. His answer was, in character with his past actions, that they did not and never should know it from biro "From this we can understand the injustice of tho criticisms to which he had been subjvted. I saw him no more, but have since learned that he died in Philadelphia, and from this fact trust that he became reconciled with his fam ily. I learned from President Davis the fact relating to General IVmberton'i leaving his home and entering tho Con federate service," HOW TREATIES ARE MADE. tho IoltUtlTs ! Nefotlatlons With Tor-Ig-n I'owrrt, Is With the President. . "The treaty making power is given to the president, iu connection with the senate, by tho constitution," write General Harrison in his "This Country of Ours" article in Ladies' Home Jour nal. "Tho initiative the negotiation with foreign governments leading up to an agreement, and the framing of tho articles of the treaty is with the exec utive. The senate has no part in the matter until tho president communi cates tho treaty to it and asks Us con currence. It may then, however, either concur or reject, or concur with amend-' ments. When the executive has agreed with auy foreign power upon a treaty, and it has been duly sigucd by the plen ipotentiaries for their mqiective govern ments, it is sent to the senate for it concurrence, fcnt is considered tftpre tn secret session. Whatever may be said m to the wisdom or necessity of secret session for other puppoaea, it is maul festly necessary that the term of treat lei and the diseussiou of them should in many cases b kept in tho confidence of those charged with concluding them until they are concluded. "Though all the attempt in the con titutioual convention to give the house of representatives a part in the making or treaties railed, It is tt ill true that many important treaty stjpolations de pendfor their execution upon the actiou of the house. If a treaty stipulate for the payment of money by tho , United State, the money cannot be taken from tbe treasury without au apio-oprlatiou. It may be said that as a treaty ia a part of the 'supreme law of the land,' it is the duty of congress to appropriate the money necessary to carry it into effect, and that in the making of tbe appropri ation the house ha no right to consider the question of tbe value or propriety of the treaty. But, all the same, if the appropriation ia not made the treaty fail. Usually appropriation to carry out a treaty have been given freely by the house, but there is power to with hold them, aud so to defeat the treaty, Aa to treaties involving Our revenue laws, the house having by tbe const! tution the sole power to originate rev enue bills has claimed the right to act upon a consideration of the wisdom or unwisdom of the treaty." Boys aad Firearms. An accident which show the danger or not teaching boy how to use firearm is reported in The American Field. Sev enteeu-year-old James Groat of Omaha, with three comrades, was hunting ducks on the river. Not finding the bird plentiful, loy fashion, they thought they would play about iu the willow blind. They laid their guns down and began to skylark. All of a sudden flock of duck was seen coming, aud there was a rush to get the guns. If young Groat had been brought up right, he would - not have left hi gun cocked and loaded, he would not have grasped it by the muzzle and pulled it toward himself, the trigger would not have caught in a twig, and the lad would not have been killed. The top of hi head was blown to piece by the whole charge of shot entering just above the nose, When a boy wants a gun and is in a place about which game is to be found, and there are hunters to hunt it, the boy is going to have it by hook or crook. So the beat way to do when a lad show the symptom is to put him into the hands of a good hunter and have him taught what to do and what not to do, especially what not to do, and if a good gun, built by a trustworthy manufac turer, is given to the would be hunter, there is no danger whatever. If this waa done in every instance with boys, there would be no accidental killings. . It ia the self confident, self taught man who kills others and himself. Me aod Others. . All artist should consider facts about the masters of bis profession calmly and thoughtfully. He may reach valuable conclusions about himself. A certain musical composer of much talent and popularity we will call him Sinithkins has a happy appreciation of his own work, as his friends all know. So highly does he estimate Smithkin's composition that some of his friend were much startled the other day when he said gravely, "Did you ever notice that the names of all the great composers begin with M?" "Al!" ejaculated his astonished au dience. "Yes, M," said the composer,. "Mo zart, Mendelssohn, Miyerbeer. Moszkow- ki and Me!" Pearson's Weekly. Farm Wages and Prom. Ex-Governor Boies of Iowa says that he cannot pay the present rate of wages and make his 3,500 acre farm pay. He Bays that no farmer who has to hire his help can make money at farming under the gold standard. Kx-Congrcssman Bland says that wages of all kinds will rise under free coinage. It would naturally lie inferred from Boies' statement that he wants free coinage to lower farm wages so that the big farmers can make money out of the labor of others. Bland's opinion evi dently is that five coinage would lie a good thing for the farm' laborer und therefore, so far as wages are concerned, a bad thing for the bos farmers. The two leading free coinage advo cates should get together. It might also bo well for farmers and "farmhands" to investigate these conflicting state ments. One Object of Life Insurance. The subject of the conversation had taken several routes, and' finally the topic of insurance was reached by the guest, the hostess and host at the din ner table, . "Papa ha his life insured," spoke up the little girl, the pet of the house hold. . "Ia that so?" asked one of the visit ors, ahowing interest in the evidence of precocity. Everybody present looked at the Child, and the father and mother gazed fondly and proudly. "Yea rn; for f 18,000. "What ha he done that for?" "So mamma can buy a new husband when he'a dead.

SUCKER STATE SILVERITE3. taapadent Claims of Sliteen to One Bhoat ers at Poorln. The Illinois Democratic state conven tion added hypocrisy and double dealing to the silverite doctrine of repudiation and dishonest dollars when it dccluml in its platform: "We favor the souurii-st and safest money known to man. We demand the repeal of that Repub lican and plutocratic legislation which demonetized silver and red reed it to the level of token mcney, destroying by one-half the stock of real noney. We demand the immediate restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver aa a standard money at tbe rate of 16 ounces of silver to 1 of gold of eqnal fineness, with full legal tender power to each metal. " This dec laration for free silver was tcnued "the bimetallism which was made the basis of our monetary system by Humilton and Jefferson." . k Of all kinds of frauds the cunt ing humbug ia the worst. The sincere but mistaken silverites, who admit that free coinage at HAto 1 would put this coun try on the silver basis, are deserving of far more respect than the men who have the impudence to talk of "sound anJ safe money" in connection with their 60 cent dollar scheme. Every man who ia old enough to vote know that free silver, with the bullion value of the two metals at a ratio of 80 to 1, means silver monometallism pure and simple. This is the standard of Mexico, China and India, where its frequent and violent fluctuations and decreasing purchasing power testify to it "soundness aud safety." I that the kind of money the American people want? It will be somewhat difficult to secure tbe repeal of "the legislation which de mownHrwrl silver and reduced it to the FRt COINAGE CASTLES IN THE AIR. . Xhe cheap mouey devil tempts the farmers with promises of prosperity, bin the men he delude will find that he leads them only to ruin and poverty. Now, as in the past, the tempter finds willing dupes who will learnjwben it is too late, that free silver prosperity is only a mirage. basis of token money, "since there is no such legislation ou the statute books. What the Sucker State financier re ferred to was probably the legisla tion which since 1873 ha given us $550,000,000 of full legal tender sliver money, not one dollar of which i token money, and $75,000,000 of subsidiary coinage. As there was not f0000,0()0 or silver money or all kinds in the coun try in 1873 and less than 98,000,000 full legal tender silver coins, it is hard to see how "the stock of real money ha been destroyed one-half." Since an in crease of $340,000,000 is considered a contraction of the currency, it is easy to understand how the crosseyed silver ites can believe that forcing $625,000, 000 in gold out of circulation would give us more money. "The bimetallism of Hamilton aud Jefferson" was the coinage of gold and silver at a ratio which waa as nearly as possible the commercial ratio between the value of the two metals. In experi ence it was found that whenever one of the metals was overvalued it disappeared from circulation, the cheaper money only being used, so that the country was always on cither the gold or the silver standard. Under present conditions, with the bullion valueof silver 80 times that of gold, it would be irujios.cible to keep gold in circulation, and the coun try would go at once to a silver basis. Americans who favor real bimetallism, under which an almost equal value of gold aud silver money is now kept iu circulation, must work and vote against free silver monometallism. Some Hnfe Bets. "Silver is now worth about f9 cents au ounce. The silver bulhou in a dol lar is worth attout 64 cents. Free silver coinage would raise the price of silver to 129 cents an ounce, and the silver in an American dollar would be worth $1 in gold the world over even without a government stamp on it" Ex-Congressman R. P. Bland in New York World of July 1, 1890. If you have a neighbor who think Bland is a great statesman, and who is willing to back his opinion with money, and who would have anything to lose after going through the five- coinage fycloue, here are some of the perfectly sare bets yon can make him: r irst. That free coinage would not in one year raise the price of silver to $1 per ounce. (You can bet ou any number of years, but would have to wait longer before the bet could be set tled.) Second. That the price of silver will be lower one year after than oue year before the passage of a free coinage act. Third. That the price of silver will be less than 80 cents per ounce when a free coinage act has len in effect six months or oue year. Fourth. That at no time within one year after free coinage at 16 to 1 lis become a law will an American silver dollar be worth a much as 75 per cent of the value of an American gold dollar If you cannot get even beta, give (aid. The price of nilver is determined mainly by the cost cf production. All the ailver tbe world can use ran be pro duced at lea than 73 and probably les than 70 cent per ounce. No legislation can raise, except for a short time, the price of ilTcr. It i to be hoped that w e will never bo forced to make this fool iah free coinage experiment, but if we do we should, if we can find taker, re coup aome of our certain Ionmc by bet ting on the inevitable. Pro CoUac Plainly Stated. It ia important to remember that Highest of ail In Leavening MM Ll VV ABSOLUTELY PtJHE Tree coinage means tho right of every owner of bullion to present tho same to tho mints of the United States and have it ooined without charge into money. Under the free coinage of silver, tho owner of 81 7 i grains of pure silver would be permitted to turn it over to the United .States mint and have it coined without charge or retvivo there for one silver dollar. More than this, under free and uulimitcd coinage, this right would Isj extended to the whole world, aud the amount of silver coinage would be limited only by tho capacity of our mints aud the output of the silver mines. If I have made myself understood as to the meaning of free coinuge aud "the ratio, " we are now prepared to dis cuss understanding the feasibility of owning the mints cf the United States to the free and unlimited coinage of sil ver by this country alone at the ratio of 1 to 1. For myself, Mfter tho most ma ture delilieration, I have lvn unable to reach any other conclusion than that such a step would lw ut tended with t In most serious consequences to the country and involve all our people iu a common disaster. Tn t)i first ulace. the free and unlini Ited coinage of silver at 10 to 1 would in my judgment expel from our circula tion not only our entire volume of gold, but every dollar of paper money redeem able in gold aud cause a contraction of tho currenry und a resultant panic the like of which has not been seen in this generation. Senator J. C. Burrows. How Saviors Will Be Loat. , Thero will bo millions of mad farm ers, workingmen, clerks and professional men when they go to draw their little savings out of bank after we have gone, or decided to go, to a silver basis, should we foolishly decide to go there via th 16 to 1 short lino. The 4,875,519 dopos itors, who have $1,810,597,023 in sav ings banks would all suddenly conclude to withdraw their savings end to con vert them into gold iK'foro we should drop to the silver basis. Only a small percentage could obtain their deposits before tho doors of the bauks would close. The great majority of depositors would have to wait until wo had actu ally reached a silver basis before they could withdraw their deposits, and this picture shows the kind of money thoy a-ould obtain. It will not bo the fault of the bank officers if the banks are un able to return us good money as they received. They havo loaned the banks' fund out at interest and, except in cases where officer have suspected the honest Intentions of their country and inserted the gold clause in mortgages, tho banks themselves will have to accept depreci ated dollar in return for the full valuo lollara loaned. They will, therefore, have only cheap dollars to return to their depositor. Those depositor, then, re the real cmlitor class of this conn try. Instead of being few and wealthy there are over 10,000,000 of them hav ing deposits in all kinds of banks and lu building aud loan associations, and their average per capita deposits are uly $300. This country will not go to a silver basis without the consent of a large portion of these depositors. If they do vote to put it on a silver basis, sev eral millions of them will be kicking themselves tho next mom ing after they find out what they have done. Only fwes On Hid.
