Pkactical tests of b.OOO children in
the primary schools of London found
more than forty per cent, of them suf
fering from defective vision. In Balti
more more than 9,000 of the 511,000 school
children are found to be similarly
affected and in Baltimore the atmos
phere is rarely murky, as is chronically
the case in London and often the case
in Cincinnati. Some other cause than
defective light in the school room, the
shop worn cause, must, therefore, be as
signed for this prevalence of abnormal
eyes. What is it? Habits of parents
andhabitsof children? Whatinfluence
has the food eaten upon the quality of
the eyes? Does chronic dyspepsia on
the part of the parents produce im
paired vision in the offspring? What
percentage of Marietta school children
suffer from myopia and kindred trou
bles? Always Talk The Loudest.
A free-coinage advocate was ha
ranguing a crowdTon the public square
in a noisy way the other evening when
a young man pushed his way to the
"May I aBk you a question ?" he
"Certainly," said the free-coinage
"How old are you ?" asked the young
"Sixty-three years," was the reply.
"Uow mnch are you worth ?"
"Not a dollar."
"Just as I expected." Then, turning
to the crowd, the young man said:
"Here is a man who admits he is sixty-
three years old, and that he has never
accumulated a dollar, and yet he is try
ing to outline to you a financial policy
which he thinks the United States Gov
ernment should follow."
Turning on his heal he walked rap
idly away, leaving the crowd to ponder
on the object lesson he had given it.
. . . .Even if it were true that free coin
of silver, how would that benefit the
great majority of the American people?
JSot one person In a thousand owns a si
ver mine or has silver bullion for which
he wants a higher price. Buteverybody
wants to buy silver in the form of man
ufactured articles of use ortornament.
and therefore wonts it to be as cheap as
possible. A scheme for making glass
ware or hardware dearer would not :
jceivo much favor'from the consumers of
those goods. Is1 it at all likely that the
jconsumers of silver manufactures are
anxious to pay more for. them?
From a Great Democrat!
A depreciation of the currency is al
ways attended by a. loss to the labor
lag classes. This portion of the com
munity have neither time nor oonor
tunlty to watch the ebbs and flows of
the money market. Engaged from day
to day in their useful tolls, they do not
perceive tnat, although their -wages are
nominally the same, or oven somewhat
higher, they are greatly reduced, in
fact, by the rapid increase of currency,
which, os It appears to make money
aoonna, uiey are not at first Inclined to
consider a blessing. Andrew Jackson,

FOR HONEST MONEY.
Mr. MoKInley'. Able Disous&lonof
the Money Question.
No Debasement of Money So Repudiation
ot Debt Free Coinage Imperils the
Nation's Safety YVorklngraen and
Farmers Have most at Stako
Good Honey Never Made
Maj. McKinley'a letter of acceptance
Is as sound as a gold dollar. The fol
lowing are some of his best points!
What Freo Coinage Mean.
The character of the money which
shall measure our values and exchanges
and settle our balances with one another
and with the nations of the world is of
such primary importance and so far
reaching in Its consequences as to call
for tho moslpafnstaking investigation,
'nnl In Kn nYrtl fnJiMMrhnd uitorciudlced
judprnent'al IhWoilS Wmuirtnpt be
misled, uy pnrases nor upiuucu uyima,
theories! Free silver woald'flot.mean
tMt iilver dollars wero to be freely liad
without cast or labor. It would mean
the free use of the mints of the United
States for the few who are owners of
siher bullion, but would make silver
coin no freer to the many who are en
gaged in other enterprises.
It would not make labor easier, the
hours of labor shorter or the pay better.
It would not make farming less labori
ous or more profitable. It would not
start a factory or mulic a demand for an
additional day's labor. It would create
no new occupations. It would add
nothing to tho comfort of the mosses,
the capital of the people or the wealth
of the nation. It seeks to introduce a
new measure of value, but would add
no value to tho thing measured. It
would not conserve values. On the con
trary, It would derange all existing val
ues. It would not restore business con
fidence, but its direct effect would be to
destroy the little which yet remains.
The meaning of tho coinage plan
adopted at Chicago is that anyone may
take a quantity of silver bullion, now
worth 53 centa, to the mints of the
United States, have it coined at the ex
pense of the government-and receive for
it a 6llver dollar which shall be legal
tender for tho payment of all debts,
public and private. The owner of the
slUer bullion would get the silver dollar.
It would belong to him and nobody else.
Other people would get it only by their
labor, the products of their land or
something of value. The bullion own
er, on the basis of presenfcvalucs, would
receive the silver dollar for 53 cents
worth of silver, and other people would
bo required to receive it as a full dollar
in the payment of debts. The govern
ment would get nothing from the trans
action. It would bear the expense of
coining the silver, and the community
would suffer loss by its use.
Silver Dollars Now on a Gold Dasln.
Wo have coined since 1878 more
than 400,000,000 of silver dollars,
which aro maintained by the govern
ment at parity with gold and are full
legal tender for the payment of all
debts, public and private. IIow ore tho
siher dollars now in use different from
those which would bo in use under freo
coinage? They are to be of tho same
weight and fineness. They are to bear
the same stamp of the gmernment.
Why should they not be of the same
value? I answer: The silver dollars
now in use -were coined on account of
the government, and not for private ac
count or gain, and the government has
solemnly agreed to keep them as good
as the best dollars we liave. The gov
ernment bought tho silver bullion at its
market alue and coined it into silver
dollars. Having exclusive control of
the mintage, it only coins what it can
hold at a parity with gold. The profit,
representing the difference between the
commercial value of the silver bullion
nnd the face value of the silver dollar,
goes to the government for the benefit
of the people.
Farmer and Laborers Would Buffer Most.
If there is any one thing which should
be free from speculation and fluctuation,
it is the money of a country. It ought
never to be the subject of mere partisan
contention. When we part with our la
bor, our products or our property, we
should receive in return money which
is as stable and unchanging in value as
the Ingenuity of honest men can moke
it. Debasement of the currency means
destruction of values. No one suffers bo
much from cheap money aa the farmers
nnd laborers. They aro the first to feel
its bad effects and the lost to recover
from them. This lias been tho uniform
experience of all countries, and here as
elsewhere. The poor, and not the rich,
arc always the greatest sufferers from
every attempt to debase our money. It
would fall with alarming severity upon
investments already made, upon insur
ance companies and their policy holders,
upon savings banks and their deposit
ors, upon building and loan association
members, upon tho savings of thrift,
upon pensioners and their families, and
upon wage-earners and the purchasing
power of their wages. 1 '
Good Money Never Made Hard limes."
It is mere pretense to attribute the
hard times to the fact that all our cur
rency is. on a gold basis. Good money
never made hard times. Those who as
sert that our present industrial and
financial depression is the result of tho
gold standard have not read American
history aright or been carelul students
of the evunts of recent years. We never
had greater prosperity in this country,
in every field of employment and indus
try, than in tha busy years from 1880
to 1892, during all of which time this
country was on a gold basis and em
ployed more gold money in its fiscal and
business operations than eer before.
Worst of All Misfortunes.
The great trouble, about repudiation
is that you cannot pay debts with it
more than once. In other words, it in
volves the crucifixion of credit on a
cross of rascality, and the loss of credit
is the worst of misfortunes. St. Louis

The Wolf Creek Oil Company, of Bev
erly, have contracted with Keever &
Dyar for drilling a test well back of
that town on Wolf Creek.
Tho rig for the B. F. Veach & Co.,
well in Hendershot was finished the
first of the week and drilling was be
gun Wednesday evening. This is tho
second well started since the Hender
shot No. 4 came in about two weeks
ago, the first being the Kelly & Brobly
well which has been drilling now for
over a week. The Veach well is about
200 yards from the Hendershot A largo
number of rigs are being put and others
are being started daily.
The Lubeck Oil Co's. well at Cairo
was tubed yesterday evening. Otto
Lehman, who was out superintending
tho work, returnpd on the accomoda
tion last night. The indications when'
ho left the well were that it would im
prove in production. Lehman left for
Cairo again this morning and will have
the tract on which the well is located
surveyed, in order that proceedings
may be taken against the Clark Oil Co.,
who have built a rig and will drill a
well on their line. Parkersburg Sen
tinel. At the same time the big deal of the
Snyder Oil Co. was consummated, an
other deal of much importance was
closed. Mr. U. S. Snyder, of the Sny
der Oil Co., purchased individually, the
land and the leases thereon amounting
to 40 acres, of A. Boomhower for a
round sum in four figures. This terri
tory is located in the Hendershot field
and adjoins the famous Hendershot
well. A well is already down a con
siderable distance on the tract and
will be drilled in at once by the new
owner. The papers and legal instru
ments in this extenslye deal were drawn
up in the office of Miller & White which
firm have been kept busy all this week.
Mr.W.H.Roeser returned Friday from
a business visit of several days at Corn
ing and Glouster. He reports that
Roeser Bros, and the Philadelphia Oil
Company have two new rigs at Glous
ter and will start another at Corning
next week. The two big gas wells re
cently drilled at Glouster have been
packed, tubed and shut in and arrange
ments are being made to supply tho
town with fuel.
At the head of tho Island, on the
West Virginia side, the rig is up for a
new well to be drilled by CoL Redie
and others. 'Spudding will begin Mon
day. Tho Davis Oil Company's well No. 3
on tho Hendershot lease, in advance of
development in the Sand Hill field,
which came in Thursday, made oyer

valuable one beyond doubt

stable foundations, continuous and un

truth that every coin, mado under any
law, howsoever that coin may be
stamped, will finally command In the
markets of the world the exact value of
