AN ATTEMPT TO READ THE STARS.
Let us see if we can forecast the fut
ure in case of free silver coinage.
1. A demand for gold would at once
spring up. This, for the reason that
our imports from Europe, and it is in
Europe that we do our chief buying,
have to be paid in gold. More than
that, most of the railroad bond's nego
tiated, especially the last five years,
are payable, principal and interest, in
gold, and gold to meet these payments
would have to be procured. This de
mand would cause a premium to be
placed on gold, and gold would be
come a commodity.
8. This gold would have to be paid
for. It would be paid for, of course, in
silver or the equivalent of silver.
3. Thus the United States would in
evitably accumulate a largo stock of
4. The mints would be busy for a
time coining silver into silver dollars.
5. The efforts of the Government
hitherto to put into circulation the sil
ver dollar have been attenuated with
little success. The people don't want
the silver dollar. On June 1, 1890,i
there were in circulation only $52,717,
417 less than one apiece for the popu
lation. People prefer paper. There
fore it would not be long before the
popular demand would be that the ex
pense of minting be stopped, and thai
paper certificates ba issued instead
and this would be truo, too.
0. Accordingly the Government would
be driven to the, issue of legal tender
silver certificates, setting forth that so
and so many ounces of pure silver had
Tieen deposited in the U. S. Treasury.
7. That is to say, the silver would be
dug from the earth to be placed and
stored in Government vaults, to be held
as pledge for the certificate issued
8. In all probability it would not be
..long before people would begin to ask:
"What is the sense In the Government
"buying silver at $1,2929 an ounce, or is
suing certificates against silver based
on that price?" Thev would ask: "Is'nt
the credit of the Government, of this
great, rich Nation, as good as the silver
9. Especially would this question be
.asked as people began to discover that
silver dollars, or money, were or was,
no easier to get under free silver coin
age than it is now. They would cry
for more money.
10. This would lead to a demand for
more greenbacks irredeemable paper
11. And the Government printing
presses would be set a-going, and mon
ey, paper money, would presently be
come so plentiful that every man, wo
man and child would have some-and
It would take a thousand dollars to
buy a breakfast.
12. Then after years and years of
distress and misery, the country would
begin to climb slowly back to the place
which it had left. Com. Tribune.

Three Prominent Young Poroono ot
Wollsburs In a Watory Cravo.
One'of tho most appaling accidents
in recent years occurred Thursday
morning nt Wollsburg at 10:1!0 o'clock,
resulting in the death by drowning of
three of the best nnd most popular
young peoplo in that community.
Tho accident occurred uboutonb mile
up tho river. Tho '-Camp Jolly" fish
ing club, located opposite Lazearville,
nas always been considered the jolliest
resort near Wellsburg, and so tho
ydung folks thought who started for
the camp yesterday morning, namely:
Miss Katherino Roberts, youngest
daughter of Dr. and Mrs. H. Q. Roberts;
Miss Alice Baxter, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Geo. A. Baxter, of the Hudson
House, and Mr. James Lloyd, only son
of Mr. James Lloyd, Sr. They drpye
to Laearvillo, intending to cross the
river in a skiff. Messrs. Arthur and
Turner Roberts and Gambril Buchan
an wore already at the camp. When
hailed they procured a canoe and catne
to the Virginia side of the river for
They reached the middle of tho river,
when the young ladies becamo fright
ened at the high wind and stood up in
the boat. By so doing it upset, throw
ing the entire party into the water. Ax
small boy was near with a skiff and
managed to saye Turner Roberts and
Gambril Buchanan. Mr. Arthur Rob
erts had the presence of mind to catch
hold of the boat and get the others to
do so. Had they been satisfied with
holding to the boat they might all havo
been saved, but Mr. Lloyd and Miss
Baxter climbed on the capsized boat,
which was slippery and caused it to
upset again, all losing their hold. Mr.
Arthur Roberts was saved by Mr. Geo.
Bayley, who deserves great credit for
risking his life to save them. Miss
Baxter and young Lloyd had sunk for
the last time when Bayley returned to
try to save them.
All the parties belonged to.prominent
families in Wellsburg. Miss Roberts
is especially well known in Wheeling,
having lived there during her child
hood. The families have the sympathy
of the entire community.
Later reports from Wellsburg say the
bodies have not been recovered yet
The rescuing parties were out all after
noon, but two of the party nearly lost
their liyes by the boat overturning
Mr. Joe McHenry and Mr. Shakely, of
Lazearville. The wind is so high that
it is dangerous for the rescuing party
to resume work until it subsides
Oil City Derrick:
Across from and northwest of Sisters
ville, in Monroe county, the Mounds
ville Oil company has drilled in a well
on the Backus farm, Dogskin run, that
is making 10 bbls. an hour from the
top of tho sand. The well is located
near old production and opens up noth
ing new. A year ago that county was
the most active of any part of the low
er southwest, and a good many of the
investors are not yet up with the
money they planted in the Dye and
The Long. Finley & Co. well on the
Suppes farm, one-fourth of a mile east
of Cameron, Monroe county, has kept
the talent guessing for about two
weeks, but now it has been drilled
through the sand and from a reliable
source it has been learned that it will
make about a 15-bbl. pumper. The
owners will give it a shot tomorrow
and hope to improve its production.
The actions of the new strike does not
differ materially from the four wells
previously drilleiHn that locality with
in the past five years. Some Pittsburg
individuals and companies have been
paying rentals on territory in that
part of Monroe county for oyer 10
years, and have not thought well
enough of it to drill but a few tests.
Some surrendered their leases without
drilling after paying rental for several
years. It seems to be the general opin
ion that the showing of oil in the wells
drilled was developed in the Keener
The Riley well No, 2 at Cutler was
pumping four and one-half barrels an
hour Friday and gradually increasing.
During the remainder of the summer
some of the churches of the city will
unite in union Sunday evening services.
The First M. E. and the Presbyterian
churches will so join, worshiping al
ternately iri each church; so the Har
mar Congregational and the Gllman
Ave. M. E. churches, and the Baptist
and First Congregational churches.
Tho last pair, however, only through
the month of July. The ministers will
go the rounds, so that there will bo a
different preacher each night in which
a given church has the seryice. Of the
six churches, the Baptist, First M. E.
and Ilarmar Congregational will be
opeu next Sunday evening.
The Ideal Panacea.
James L. Francis, Alderman, Chica
go, says: "I regard Dr. King's New
Discovery as an Ideal Panacea for
Coughs, Colds and Lung Complaints,
haying used it in my family for the
last five years, to tho exclusion of phy
sician's prescriptions or other prepara
tions." Itew John Burgus, Keokuk, Iowa,
writes: "I hove been a Minister of the
Methodist Episcopal Church for SOtyears
or more, and have never, found any
thing so beneficial, prthat gave me
such' speeBy relief as Dr. King's New
Discovery." Try this Ideal Couch

ANOTHUR Jal!. DELIVERY
Four Prisoners Escape Friday Morn-
Insfrom tho County Jail.
Another wholesale delivery of pris
oners occurred at the County jail Fri
day morning. A hole large enough to
admit the passage of a man's body was
cut squarely through tho brick wall of
the jail into the main cell room and
four of the men confined therein made
themselves scarce without ceremony.
Those who escaped were DanitU
Hupp, charged with incest with his
daughter; Marion Stevens, awaiting
trial for stoning a train on the T. & O
C. E Ry., and George and Evart Bar
ker, both recently bound over to court
for stealing bicycles. All of the of
fences named are felonies.
Judging from tracks neur the open
ing of the wall on the outside of the
jail, the toes of which pointed inward,
it is fair to presume that the escaping
men received assistance from without.
