It is impossible to pay the interest on
mm- foit-ign debt, let alone the princi
pal, in actual gold, for even if we
oi;ld command the total annual pro
duction of gold the world over it would
not sutibv to pay the interest on our
foreign dobr. Nor would all the gold
wer mined in the world still in use as
money be sutlhiont to extinguish our

Tin majr portion of tho interest,
ns well as the principal, of our foreign
debt as it falls due, must and will be
paid in merchandise or not at all. In
jiierch.indise we ran pay both interest
and principal, but not if we persist in
the policy of gold monometallism. The
constantly increasing quantity of com
modities that we are required to ex
port to meet the charges of 'our foreign
debr. as gold appreciates and prices
full, is impoverishing our people and
driving- us to bankruptcy. With wheat
at a dollar and cotton at twelve eents
we could readily pay the interest and
reduce the principal of our foreign debt,
but at present prices this is quite im
possible. Our foreign creditors have in many
rases stipulated for payment in gold,
but where payment in gold is not .pee
itieully called for it is our right to pay
Ju full legal tender government money.
To pay ill merchandise we must offer
our commodities at such low prices that
our creditors will prefer payment in
commodities to gold.
;old is iot desired of itself. It is
desired only because it commands the
necessaries and luxuries of life.
Therefore, if gold will buy more of such
commodities as are desired fr con
sumption by our foreign creditors in the
1' ni ted States than elsewhere, they will
take such commodities in preference
to gold. Hut under gold monometal
lism, to make our chief articles of ox
Iort cheaper than those offered by sil
ver using peoples, means the impover
ishment and degradation of our pro
ducing classes. Our task then is to
remove such competition-and raise the !
price of wheat and cotton and other
products. This can be done by open
ing our mints to silver, and returning

and answers to our thoughtful readers,
In the hope that they will make plain
the position ocupied by Wall street in
regard to this nation. Those individ

should read, learn and inwardly di

republic in this and every other crisis?
A. To do all that he can to maintain
the credit of the government.
Q Would it be unfortunate should
the treasury be depleted at this time?
A. It would.
o.-Is it likely that a raid will be
made on the gold reserve";
A. It is feared.
t J. From what quarter?
A. From Wall street.
Q. Where does a panic strike first,
as a rule?
A. Where confidence in the govern
ment is least.
ij. Has there been any general panic,
any slump in stocks in the West, North
west or South?
.- II.-is Cleveland favored these sec
tions of the country in the past in such
a way as to make them feel a greater
loyalty to him than is to be found in

I. Are the people of the West selling
their stocks and property at a loss and

Tay Them in Silver.
Th best answer Congress can make
to the President's special financial mes
sage is the adoption of a resolution in
structing the Secretary of the Treasury
to make payments in silver if silver is
more convenient. The President's
complaint Is that gold Is being with
drawn and that there must be a change
in our entire financial system.
The change that should be made is in
the President's policy of permitting
th,s, English financiers to designate
the kind of money which they shall re
eeivo in payment of obligations that
call for "coin." The United States has
two kinds of "coin." gold and silver.
I'.ach Is unlimited legal tender either
Is good enough for the American citi
zen and either should be good enough
for the English money lords.
If the President would announce a
change in his policy in this matter he
would win new expressions of good
will. If Congress will pass a resolution
Instructing that this change shall be
made the administration would at least
be relieved of embarrassment and tho
people would be duly thankful.
Perhaps it would be business like for
the United States to permit England ro
drain it of Its gold In order to place
this country in a position when it could
not well afford to maintain its nation
al honor, but we do not believe it.
Pay our English friends off in silver
if it is not convenient to pay them gold.
Tho people of the United States would
tolerate another issue of bonds for the
purpose of raising money by iopular
loan to defray the expenses necessary
in demonstrating that the United States
must be free from Itritish domination,
but the people of the United States will
not cheerfully submit to another bond
issue made for the purpose of supply
ing the English money lenders with
gold to the detriment of our own people
and the distress of our own country.

Aside from the leisurely manner in
which the Venezuelan cointnis,ion is ar
ranging to prosecute its work, there are
other indications, says a Washington cor
respondent, that tiie administration has
bee. me convinced that this august body
will not have the honor of set Sling; tho

be staled positively that this belief is
based entirely upon any sspecilie reports
from Ambassador Bayard upon the sub
ject, yet there is reason to believe sonic
assurances of a satisfactory nature have
come to the State Department that the
matter will be terminated shortly, prob
ably within two months or before a re
port can reasonably be expected from the
Venezuelan commission, and upon liars
that will lie unobjectionable to our gov
ernment. While d"tails of the arrangement are
not obtainable, and perhaps have not yet
been fixed, it is believed tiie basis of it
will he arbitration as proposed originally
by the Fnited States, hut with a llmila
tion that will siitiire at least to save Brit

an agreement letween (Jreat Britain and
Venezuela directly, brought about through
the good olliees of a third party, not nes
essarily or probably the United States, to
fO.bmit to a joint commission the question
of the title to nil territory west of the
Srhomburgk line, with a provis that if
in the et.yrse of the inquiry of the com
mission evidence appears to touch the
British title to he lands lying to tlie east
ward of that line tlie body may extend its
functions to adjudicate such title.
This arrangement. will meet the British
contention that the original arbitration
shall be limited to lands to the westward
of the line, while, stiil conceding Ihe jus
tice of the -ontcntioii of President Cleve
land that the lands on the other side m.xy
properly be taken into eonsider-ition in
fixing the lMv.indary. Possibly a supple
mentary arbitration will 1' left to deal
with tlie question as to the title of the
eastward lands, if tlie original commission
dealing with the matter shall find that the
title to the lands is a lit subject for arbi
tration as shown by the evidence produc
