MONTPELIER, IDAHO. There ought to be a thanksgiving over the fall of Turkey. Our minds are shot with moods, as a fabric is shot with colors. More people get Into trouble by being good-natured than by exhibiting mean traits. Men often blame others for simply having allowed them to make fools of themselves.

This is true. But these metals have not always been money, neither are they necessarily the only substance out of which money may be made. Money is a creation of law. The constitution of the United States says that "Congress shall have power to coin money and regulate the value thereof": and it does not specify any particular substance out of which such money shall be coined. At dif ferent periods in the world's history nearly everything has been used money. Probably the earliest in general use as money to any great extent In ancient were sheep and cattle. Britain slaves were used as money and were called "living money." In Sparta, during the reign of Lycur gue, iron change. was the medium of Home first used gold money about two centuries before the Christian era.

The letter of Assistant Secretary Treasurer Curtis to Congressman Mc Rae, stating that the government does not redeem either silver dollars or sil ver certificates in gold, disposes of this campaign fraud.

HOW ACT DEMONETIZING SIL VER WAS PASSED. h XVa« Rushed Through Congre.« With it Itelng Read id Drlmtw Wm Shut Off by th« Previous (Juention — People Never Heard of It. Arkansas Gazette: It has been often rehearsed, so often indeed would think every citizen of the eoun ■ ry was familiar with the facts, hut they ate not, or if they read about it they have forgotten the facts. The act demonetizing silver was tmuggied through congress. Less than a half dozen members President Grant, who signed the bill, was utterly ignorant Kelly, of Pennsylvania, the chairman of the committee on coinage, weights and that one knew of it. of it. Judge at the time, when charged with having advocated the de monetization of silver, said in a speech in the house: "In connection with the charge that I advocated the bill which demonetized the standard silver dol lar, I say that, though chairman of the committee on coinage, 1 was as ignor ant of the fact that it would demone tize the silver dollar, or of its drop ping the silver dollar from our system of coins, as were those distinguished senators, Messrs. Blaine and Voorhoes, who were then members of the house, and each of whom, a few days since, interrogated the other: 'Did you know it was dropped when the bill passed?' 'No,' said Mr. Blaine, 'did you?' 'No,' said Mr. Voorhees. T do not think there were three members in the house that know it. I doubt whether Mr. Hooper, who, in my absence from the committee on coinage and attendance on the committee on ways and means, managed the bill, knew it. I say this In Justice to him." This statement was made in the Forty-fifth congress. In the Forty-sixth congress the mat ter was again brought to the attention of the house by Judge Kelly, who said: "All that I can say is that the commit tee on coinage, weights and measures, who reported the original bill, were faithful and able, and scanned its pro visions closely; that as their organ I reported it: THAT IT CONTAINED PROVISIONS FOR BOTH THE STANDARD SILVER DOLLAR AND THE TRADE DOLLAR. Never having heard until a long time after its enact ment into law of the substitution in the sent-'e of the section which dropped the standard silver dollar, I profess to know nothing of its history, but I am pro oared to say that in the legislation of this country there in no mystery eqval to the demonetization of the sil ver dollar of the United States. I have never met a man'who could tell just hew it came about or why. The bill wr s passed without any allusion iu de bo to the question of the retention or the abandonment of the standard s>ll vtr dollar." measures Evidently the crime was committed attar it had left the hands of the com mit: re, and before it was voted on in tile house. How it passed that body, is thus described by Congreseman Bright o? Tennessee: "It passed by fraud in the house, never having been printed in advance, being a substitute for the printed bill; never having been read at tt-e clerk's desk, the reading having been dispensed with by an impression tfcct the bill made no alteration in the coinage laws; it was passed without discussion, debate being cut off by operation of the previous question. It was passed, to my certain informa tion, under such circumstances that the fraud escaped the attention of soma of the most watchful, as well as tile ablest statesmen in congress at the lime." Senator Allison said in reference to Ute subject: "When the secret history IT this bill of 1873 comes to be told, it will disclose the fact that the house of representatives intended to coin both gold and silver, and intended to place l-oth metals upon the French relation listead of on our own, which was the true scientific position with reference !o this subject in 1873, but that the Tliil afterward was doctored." Senator Beck said: "The bill never was understood by either house of con f;sese." Senator Thurman said: "There is not a single man in the senate,* 'css a member of the committee from which the bill came, who had the lightest idea that it was even a squint toward demonetization." Mr. Holman, in the house, said "the measure and the methods of its pass age was a colossal swindle. It doea not possess the moral force of law." Representative Cannon, of Illinois, says the bill was not discussed neither members of congress nor the people understood the scope of legislation. nn and the Senator Hereford, of West Virginia, !n a sieech in the senate, said "the bill neve- was read, never was discussed, and tie chairman of the committee said to Mr. Holman, when asked the question, that it did not affr.it the coinage in any way whatever." j Who was benefited by this crime? The foreign and New York bondhold- '. crs. Who paid for it? Let the follow ing ftMdavit explain. Mr. 9 ,-edericlt A.

Such in brief, is the crime of 1873. the crime which the people of the United States are clamoring to have undone; a crime which, in the ianguagn of Mr. Carlisle, ' would ultimately en tail more misery upon the human men than all the wars, pestilences and fam ines that ever occurred in the history of the world." l desire to give special emphasis to the plank which recommends such leg islation as is necessary to secure the arbitration of differences between «n P oyers engaged in interstate commerce and their employes.
