Greece doesn't want to deal directly with Turkey, and no wonder; the chicken, if it had its way. would not deal directly with the ax. —-o— If Corbett and Fitzsimmons would like to fight again they nrjht save much manoeuvring and trouble by getting elected to the Illinois Legisla ture. --- One of the questions before the Pres bvterian General Synod is the tobacco question. Incidentally, there are many good Presbyterians addicted to the fragrant weed. --— -- The verascope shows that Fitz fouled Corbett. Fitz says the pictures have b> en "doctored.” If Fitz can show how and explain the method, he will confer a favor on photographers and incidentally recehe the blessing of many an old maid who now looks askance at the camera as a nasty and too truthful thing. Herr Von Tausch. ex-chief of the German secret political police, who :s being tried for treason and perjury in Berlin, threatens, if pushed to the wall to make some revelations that will set court circles high and low by the ears. There is little doubt that Von Tausch is possessed of knowledge sufficient to raise the royal roof should he turn it loose, for it has been his vocation to gather that character of information. Verily. Von Tausch is a bomb, whose explosion w 11 he awaited by onlookers with in terest. Spanish Commander in Cuba Wevler has been called a mad dog. In a recent Interview he snaps and snarls at the United States like a spoilt cur who needs a sound thrashing. His refer ences to the government at Washing ton. to our consuls and to the Amer ican people, or the “Yankees, as he cent raptuously calls them, are insult ing in the extreme and Uncle Sam should be careful to paste them in his hat for future reference. One of these days Uncle Sara may take a shot at that mail dog down in Cuba and rid the world of a dangerous rabid brute. What is this wo hear? A lady after the job C I. Hart has been trying to slip up on! Verily, it is said that Mrs. Manila M. Reker. of New Hampshire, wants to go to Bogota ?s U. S. Minister to Colombia, and she has very strong backing. Among those who speak for i ■ ig that excellent Republican. Col. H b Ingersoll, who describes her as exceedingly capable and clear headed, 't is known that Mr. McKinley favors woman suffrage and upon this fact Mrs. Ricker bases her hopes. Gallantry may yet compel Col. Hart to get off the track. -o--— Till >111 LK US lll'N* OKI). TOO. The St. Ix>uis Republic calls atten tion to the resolution of the Winter Wheat Millers' League condemning the tariff legislation of the Republicans be cause it does not widen the market— reminding one. by the way, of Blaine s famous denunciation of McKinley ism. It is recited in the resolution that on the strength of the promise to extend American trade through commercial treaties the Republican party gained the support of the flour milling indus try. but that the action of Congress so far "has been of a negative character and absolutely fails to recognize the pressing reed of new and wider mar kets.” "We submit.” conclude the millers, '‘that there is nothing in tne tariff measure to add one dollar to the value of our exports.” What else could the millers expect? Pingleyism is onu s- d to the extension of trade. Trade is exchange of pro ducts far mutual benefit, and the Re publican policy seeks the limitation of exchange between the people of one na tion and the people of other nations. It asms to compel the people who are subject to its restrictions to trade only in their own markets. It forbids mu tuality of barter. Mr. Blaine forced a modification of the ideal condition cf restriction on trade proposed by the McKlnleyites, but he did so as a matter of politics a id sacrificed the principle of protec tion at * very point where reciprocity threw down a trade barrier. Every gain in trade under the reciprocity pro visions of the McKinley law was an i ldictment of the theory of the law. In the bill now pending the theory is carried nearer perfection. It is con structed with a view to forcing the \merican people to trade with the beneficiaries of the law and thus en rit h them with artificial profits. Not only is no attempt made to open new markets, but in order to protect cer tain interests it is proposed to burden ’ertain other interests with taxes ou raw materials—taxes which will kill their trade in foreign markets. If the millers succeed in making an opening for American fiour it will be a discrim ination in their favor. Dingleyism i3 discriminating restriction and reciproc ty is discriminating exception. High tariff legislation is a bundle of restric tions and discriminations. Its aim is to grant and its effect is to foster monop oly. If the millers want new and wider markets they should seek them, not on the basis of a trade favor, but on the basis of the right to buy and sell in the best market and to be free from re strictions imposed by the general go\ ernment for the benefit of any one citizen or class of citizens. ---- MR. BRYAN ON THE MOSEY 1^1 E. Everybody knows where Mr. William Jennings Bryan stands on the money I question. If there is anything that Mr. Bryan especially is not. it is a trimmer. He has recently taken occasion to de fine his position anew and to state what he believes should be the attitude of the Democratic party in the next na tional campaign. That the money question is still the paramount issue is a self-evident truth. It will continue to be until it is settled, and settled rightly. The experience of the country since the presidential elec tion has demonstrated that fact even more clearly than was shown by the industrial conditions in the years pre ceding it. The promises that .were made in case of the election of the can didates of a party favoring the main tenance of the gold standard have not been fulfilled. The hope of prosperity iesulting from that election has been disappointed. Mr. Bryan is right in asserting that monometallism is “an un-American ar.d anti-American financial policy. That is true, whether it be gold mono metallism or silver monometallism. The true American policy, the true Democratic policy, is the restoration of the free and unlimited coinage of both silver and gold at the present legal ratio of lt> to 1, without waiting for the aid or consent of any other na tion. That is the historic American policy. The United States established its financial system at the beginning without consulting any other nation. It lived and prospered upder that sys tem. and it was an evil day for the country when, bv a trick in the interests of outsiders, tt departed from the historic policy by legislating against one of the money metals. It is true Democratic doctrine that the silver dollar should be a legal ten der equally with gold tor an neDts. public and private, and that the govern ment should maintain the right to re deem coin obligations in either gold or silver. That is the law now. and the government should carry the law into effect. It was an un-Democratic and an un-American policy that legislated against the further coinage of silver _>n equal terms with gold. It is an un wise policy for either Democratic or Republican administrations to nullify in practice the laws which give equal ^ right in payment of obligations to gold and the existing silver dollars. There is one point, however, in Mr. Bryan's statement that is open to crit icism, in our judgment, namely, his opposition to any plan of retiring the greenbacks and every form of treas ury notes issued as money. These are simply fiat money, and as such are opposed to sound Democratic doctrine. We do not believe the government ought to remain in the banking busi ness any longer than it takes to get out cf it. As the Cleveland Plain Dealer puts it. the issue of the green back was an expedient born of the ne cessities of the government in war time. Whether wise or otherwise at the time, the conditions are now different and the argument in support of the policy no longer applies. The government should return as fast as practicable to its legitimate function of coining money instead of issuing promises to pay and calling them money. As long as the greenbacks are in ex istence. with compulsory reissue when redeemed, and the government con siders it to be its duty to redeem them in gold only, so long will they be a source of danger to our financial sys tem. The "endless chain” will be put in motion whenever the gold syndicates can see a profit in the operation, and increase of bonded indebtedness will lie the inevitable result. The only safe way is to take the government out of the banking business as quicmy as u can be done without violent financial disturbance and to establish a sound banking system by which all the paper money of the country would be issued by banks, under rigid supervision for the security of depositors and note holders, and every note made redeem able in real money—gold and silver coined by the government on equal terms, according to the intent of the constitution and the language of the laws until the disastrous departure in 1S73. -o thk sr<»AK king * tkiai. Sugar King Havemeyer’s trial began . in the criminal court at Washington | yesterday for refusing to answer ques-1 tions of the Senate Committee inves tigating the Sugar Trust. Then will come Searles. All three of these contumacious witnesses— Chapman. Havemeyer and Searles—• should be put in jail again rnd again and again until their contempt of the Senate Is removed by answering the questions. These representative Plutocrats should be shown that the Mighty Dol lar is not yet paramount in our gov ernment and that the United States Senate is not a body that can safely be | trifled with by bloated wealth. The vigorous inculcation of some such les- j son is sadly needed about this time i and it is a duty the Senate owes the people and its own honor and dignity to make the teaching forcible and plain.
