OPELOUSAS, LA., AUGUST 26, 1S93.
Fixing the parity between gold and
silver seems to be the stumbling block,
with many, in the way of free coinage
of silver; even with President Cleve
land himself, who thinks that this
country alone can not settle the mat
ter, but that it must he done by inter
national agreement. It is scarcely
possible to fix an absolutely accurate
parity; it can only be approximated.
The parity now between gold and sil
ver is one in weight of gold to sixteen
of silver. The latter metal has been
so demonetized that the demand for
it has been reduced, and it has only a
commercial value when in the shape
of bullion; but when coined, the peo
ple accept it as readily as they do gold,
and give as much for a silver As they
do for a gold dollar. When a bushel
of wheat sells for a dollar in gold, a
dollar in gold may be said to be worth
a bushel of wheat, and that there is
parity between a gold dollar and a
bushel of wheat; but when wheat
sells at 80 cents per bushel that parity
has been changed at the expense of
wheat, and with wheat at $1.25 that
parity has been changed at the expense
of gold. The parity will always shift
with the supply and demand. But
nothing illustrates the proposed inter
national parity humbug so well as one
solid fact : There should be no diffcul
ty in maintaining a parity between
silver dollars. We believe it is conce
ded that there is more pure silver in a
Mexican dollar than in a United States
dollar; yet the former passes in the
United States at a discount, and the
latter passes justly at a discount in
Mexico. It would seem, therefore that
a United States dollar, with less silver
in it, is worth considerably more here
than a Mexican one; and what puz
zles us is the lack of international par
ity, and if the United States and Mex
ico can not or will not have a parity
in silver dollars, how can it be expected
that there ever will be. during this
generation at least, an international
parity between gold and silver through
out Europe and America? If we are
not to have the fred coinage of silver
until such a thing is brought about,
and it seems to be President Cleve
land's opinion that we should not, we
fear that none of us will live long
enough to see it.
The following item taken from the
New Orleans States, illustrating the
lack of parity between silver dollars,
will show that however more difficult
it may be to establish a parity between
gold and silver, that "lack of parity"
in one lone silver dollar can secure all
the drinks an individual can "get
away with" without lessening the
capital of one dollar-a silver dollar
there, to a toper, is a second Aladin's
TIHE TOPER'S PARADISE.
The Marshall (Texas) Star publishes
the following financial conundrum :
"Here is a query which we would be
pleased to have some of our many readers
answer: A man walked into an El Paso,
Texas, saloon, got a drink and threw down
an American silver dollar. The bartender
FaVe him as change a Mexican silver dol
lar, which is worth ninety cents. The fel
low crossed the Rio Grande river, which,
by the way, is the border line between the
United States and Mexico, entered a dive
and called for another drink, to assuage
his thirst. After drinking he gave the bar
tender his Mexican silver dollar and re
ceived an American silver dollar, which is
only worth 90 cents there. For the last
year this man has followed out the same
programme of going across the border line
and drink alternately in the United States
and Mexico, sometimes fifteen or twenty
drinks a day, receiving in exchange a
Mexican and an American silver dollar,
and during that time has always had his
drinks free and today has the same old
American silver dollar with which he
started into business. Now, the question
is, who pays for the drinks, as the barten
ders are all satisfied?"
It is quite evident that the drinker
does not lose anything, and as the sa
loon men on the Mexican and Ameri
can sides of the river profit by the dif
ference in the value of the two coins,
they are happy, but it is reasonable to
suppose that the man who started in
with his American dollar gets a shade
the best of the arrangement. If what
the Star has published is true, El Paso
is the paradise of old topers, and when
the advantages it offers in the way of
free and unlimited drinks are made
known to them there will be a large
exodus to the little city on the Rio
Grande. Each and every one of the
topers can start in on a capital of one
of Uncle Sam's dollars and keep as full
as a harvest moon for an indefinite
time, and have inumerable cases of
jim-jams, without paying a cent for
WANTS AN EXPLANATION.
If Mr. Swords' statement of facts as
contained in his communication of the
19th inst., be true (and we doubt not
but that it is), Mr. Boagni will have
to explain his inconsistent attitude
upon the assessment question. To the
ordinary mind it seems unreasonable
that he should have at one time in
sisted first upon an increased assess
ment, and thereafter have desired to
do the very reverse. An explanation
is now in order, and we insist upon
having it. READER.

"What will the House do?" That
question is asked by about nine out of
every ten men you meet, since the
House began the fourteen day discus
sion of the silver question, at the close
of which votes are to be taken which
will leave no shadow of doubt as to
where every member of the House
stands on this important question. If
the vote were taken today upon the
bill for the repeal of the purchasing
clause of the Sherman silver law it
would pass the House, almost to a cer
tainty; but under the agreement
which has been made the vote upon
that bill unamended will be the last to
be taken, and if any one of the other
propositions, including free coinage of
silver at ratios all the way from 16
(the present) to 20 to 1, and the Bland
Act of 1878, which will be offered as
amendments, be passed the unamended
bill will never be voted upon. The
principal element of doubt is that of
the changed ratio. It is practically
certain now that the amendment for
free coinage at the present ratio will
be defeated by a small majority, but it
is difficult to predict whether as the
amendments increasing the ratio at
which silver may be coined are offered
the total vote will increase or decrease.
The populists have given notice that
they will vote against all of the amend
ments for increasing the ratio, but in
asmuch as that will be practically vot
ing for the unconditional repeal of the
purchasing clause of the Sherman law
they may change their minds when
the time comes to vote. If the votes
for increased ratio or for the old Bland
law are not larger than those for free
coinage at the present ratio the bill
for the repeal of the Sherman law will,
in the opinion of your correspondent,
pass the House without amendment;
but the chances now appear to be
about even, notwithstanding claims
made by the unconditional repeal men,
for the adoption of some of the pro
The elements of doubt are fewer in
the Senate, although it has apparently
not advanced so far as the House in
dealing with the silver question. In
fact the Finance committee has not
yet considered a single one of the many
financial bills which have been referred
to it, and inasmuch as the Senate has
its committees and rules the matter
can not get before that body without
being reported from committee. The
delay in the Senate is caused by the
efforts of the Democrats to agree upon
something definite before starting,
some sort of a compromise that can be
endorsed by the caucus of that party.
The Republican Senators have decided
that when the question shall be taken
up each of them shall be free to follow
his own inclination. There is not a
Senator, whatever his own preference
may be, who will not concede the im
possibility of passing a bill for the un
conditional repeal of the purchasing
clause of the Sherman law, without
amendment. That being the case the
objective point of the anti-silver men
is a measure that will be supported by
a majority and not be liable to a Presi
dential veto. They claim to be mak
ing progress towards such a measure.
Meanwhile the silver Senators say they
have the game in their own hands and
do not propose to accept any compro
mise that is not as favorable to silver
as the present law.
The division in the House is not up
on political lines, but solely upon sil
ver. The speeches so far made have
been inclined to be somewhat radical
on both sides. Mr. Bland threatened
that the silver men would withdraw
from the 1)emocratic party if Congress
did not live up to the Chicago plat
form, and Mr. Rayner of Maryland re
torted by saying that be would not be
blinded nor intimated by the glitter
ing words of a convention declaration.
The speech that has attracted the
most attention from members of the
House was made by Representative
Pence, a new populist from Colorado.
His language was well chosen and his
sentiments conservative, but he scored
some strong points. He quoted from
a silver speech made in the House in
1878 by Secretary Carlisle, and con
trasted the position then and now of
that gentleman. "That speech," he
concluded, "was made by Mr. Carlisle
when he was a leader, not a follower;
when he was a sender of messages, not
a bearer of them."
The members of the House are not
taking the interest in the silver dis
cussion that it was supposed they
would. Many of them have gone too
near by summer resorts, and with the
exception of the day on which the de
bate began not one third of them have
been in their seats at any one time.
President Cleveland's sudden and
mysterious departure for Gray Gables
started a thousand tongues to wagging
afresh about the condition of his
health, which is generally believed to
be very bad. It is now said that in
addition to other complication his ner
vous system has gone all to pieces, and
that if he doesn't find relief his mind
is in danger of becoming affected.
SUFFICIENT CAUSE FOR REMOVAL.
If Mr. Boagni proposed to increase
the assessment of property in this par
ish so as to meet the current expenses
and curtail the parish debt and there
after without good and sufficient cause
proposed to reduce the same below the
amount necessary to pay the current
expenses of this parish, he furnished
cause sufficient for his removal.
More than this, if he proposed to
antagonize the Governor's appointees
whilst himself holding a commission
under the Governor, he was guilty of
an affront to the Executive, and his
conduct could not very well be tolera
ted by the Governor. "Chopping off"
the heads of such public servants will
always be appreciated by this com

MANUFACTURING; POLITICS AT
THE PEOPLE'S tEXPENSE.
There is a statement inr Mr. Swords'
communication of the 19th inst., to
which we desire to call the public at
tention. He says: "For some cause
or other the police jury could not
agree (i. e. upon the manner of levying
assessments) and the people's money
was continually being wasted in efforts
to manufacture politics instead of leg
islating for the benefit of the parish."
This matter has often occurred to the
writer, and this clean cut statement to
the public has induced him to call the
people's attention to it, with a view
of insisting that such pernicious prac
tice cease. Talk about decapitation,
but this is too mild a remedy for a po
lice juror engaged in such business.
He ought to be held up to the public
gaze, and tabooed, until he would not
have sufficient courage to vote for him
self as road inspector. And yet this
thing is being done, and will continne
to be done so long as members of that
body will let policical hacks and dis
gruntled soreheads. advise them as to
their duty in the premises. These pol
iticians are never satisfied at anything
being done by that body unless it be
in their interest. The moment they
find themselves without authority to
"run things" to suit themselves they
begin to raise the cry of "stop thief !"
and to preach reform with so much
plausibility that they engage the
attention of some member of this
body, and then make a perfect cat's
paw of him. Let the police jury give its
attention to the business of the parish
properly, without regard to the opinion
of these self-constituted guardians of
the public weal, and they will not in
the future be held answerable to such
charge as is herein cited. TRUTH.
Hazzard Circular, Where it Was Found.
Col. Lee Crandall, Secretary National Ex
ecutive Silver Committee:
Sir.-In reply to your polite lquest
of yesterday, expressing a desire to be
informed of the origin of the copy of
the "Hazzard circular," copied by the
National View some four years ago
from the columns of the Council Grove
Guard, then published by me in Coun
cil Grove, Kas., I have to say that I
obtained the original copy from a Mr.
J. W. Simcock, the cashier of the
First National Bank of Council Grove,
Kas. I, at that time, say about the
year 1873, was the attorney for that
bank, and one day when the cashier
was writing up and arranging a large
number of accumulated letters and
other papers of supposed value either
he or I came across the "Hazzard Cir
cular" together with the circular of
the American bankers and signed by
one Buell. I asked Mr. Simcock for
these two circulars and he gave them
to me then, and at the same time, in
reply to questions I asked him, he said
that their day of usefulness was over,
that his friends in New York, some
bankers there, sent them to him, that
he might better understand the his
tory and origin of the national bank
ing system, as he was comparatively a
new banker. I kept them for the
light they threw upon the financial
questions of the times, and published
the "Hazzard Circular" first Septem
ber 18, 1886, omitting the date there
from, for the reason that it had drop
ped off, having been folded, that when
I came to print it the date had been
lost off, the date was that of Summer
or Fall of 1862, but the exact ronth
or day I can not recollect, November I
think. Very respectfully,

THE HAZZARD CIRCULAR.
In 1862 an agent of European capi
talists sent the following "confidential"
circular to American bankers:
"Slavery is likely to be abolished by
the war and chattel slavery destroyed.
This, I and my European friends are
in favor of, for slavery is but the own
ing of labor anal carries wvith it the
care of the laborer, while the European
plan, led on by England, is capital con
trol of labor, by controlling wages.
This can be done by controlling the
money. The great debt that capital
ists will see to it is made out of the
war, must be used as a measure to con
trol the volume of money. To accom
plish this, the bonds must be used as
a banking basis. We are now waiting
to get the Secretary of the Treasury to
make this recommendation to Con
gress. It will not do to allow the
"greenback," as it is called, to circu
late as money any length of time, for
we can not control them. But we
can control the bonds and through
them the bank issue."
THE BUELL CIRCULAR.
"Dear Sir: It is advisable to do all
in your power to sustain such daily
and weekly newspapers, especially the
agricultural and religious press, as will
oppose the issuing of greenback paper
money, and that you also withhold
patronage or favors from all who will
not oppose the government issue of
money. Let the government issue the
coin and the banks issue the paper
money for the country, for then we
can better protect each other. To re
peal the law creating national banks
or to restore to circulation the govern
ment issue of money will be to provide
the people with money and will, there
fore, seriously affect your individual
profits as bankers and lenders. See
your member of.Congress at once and
engage him to support our interest
that we may control legislation."
Twelve thousand men in a Northern
city were out of work, and of course,
out of money. Neighboring farmers
thought they here saw a chance to get
help in their harvest fields. A num
ber of them visited the city for that
purpose, and after three days found
four men who were willing to do farm
work. The scarcity of saloons in the
country is an insuperable barrier
against getting this class of labor to
take hold of farm work.-Farm and

THE BLIND SAMILSON.
I have been severely taken to task
by a very dear friend who is a member
of one of the othodox churches. Be
not alarmed, my friend, I come not to
pull down, but to build up; not to
make void :the law, but to fulfill it;
not to slay, but to bring to life. He
says I had compelled attention along
the lines I was working. Dr. Heber
Newton has asserted from his pulpit
that present conditions are a severe
indictment of the Christian church.
Cardinal Gibbon and many other high
church dignitaries have made like re
marks on social conditions, and I need
not enlarge upon this point. A uni
versally admitted fact requires no proof.
But when my friend goes further
and says the inspired men who wrote
the Bible and who planned and super
intended the building of the great
Pyramid, were ignorant barbarians, it
is necessary to bind "This Blind Samp
son" in the meshes of inexorable fact
and logic. "In that day there shall
be an altar unto the Lord in the midst
of the land of Egypt and a pillar on
the borders thereof to the Lord. And
it shall be for a sign and for witness
unto the Lord of Hosts in the land of
Now as my friend is a Biblical schol
ar and invites me into this field. I
enter it though armed, as he says, with
a popgun. What I propose to do is
to take up the cross and exhibit there
on the carnal and spiritual Christ. I
will then relate the cross to the Pyra
mid of Egypt, showing that the same
central truth is symbolized in both.
Having done this I will relate both to
the rainbow-the bow of promise. I
will then relate all three to the Phiades
-the seven stars-the seven colors of
the rainbow. I will then show that
while the trinity cognates the spiritual
universe the triangle, which symbolizes
the trinity, measures the material un
iverse. This is not a very difficult
task, but it presupposes some acquain
tance with mathematics and astrono
my. This many of the readers of the
CLAmios have a much' higher degree
than myself. My own knowledge is
very imperfect, but sufficient for me
to comprehend how distances are
measured by triangulation. But there
is another science with which I have
reason to think the CLARION readers
are less familiar, and that is the science
Thus, while all the myriads of man
ifestation in the material universe are
animations from the ONE, yet each
separate manifestations has its separate
originating cause. This idea is exem
plified to some extent in a watch. The
main spring does not directly turn the
hands on the dial face, but neverthe
less originates-is the first cause of
all the movements that we see in a
watch. We succeed in any undertak
ing just in proportion as we follow na
But I see that I must defer doing
what I propose to another time. The
gentlemen of the CLARIOS have been
exceedingly kind and courteous, not to
say broad-minded, towards me in giv
ing me space in which to present views
differing-as I believe-so widely from
their own. Therefore I forbear to ask
for more space.
Meantime I may remark that we
have no account at all of Jesus, from
the time he left Bethlehem when an
infant until his public ministry began
thirty years later. He uent into Egypt.
And that is all we know. But it is a
fact that the "Nazarene Reformer, af
ter having received his education in
the dwellings in the desert, and being
duly initiated in the mysteries, pre
ferred the free indepenndent life of a
wondering Hazaria and so separated or
enazarenized, himself, from them, thus
becoming a traveling Therapente, or
Nazaria, a healer."
And the reason I am so well satisfied
upon this point is, that I have been for
years, what the church people call a
scoffer. That is to say that I was a
thorough disbeliever in the genuine
ness of the alleged "miracles" wrought
by Jesus. I believed that some sharp
trickster or fakir imposed upon what
my kind friend pleases to term ignor
ant barbarians. But I am convinced
upon evidence-upon irrepresible proof
-that they are genuine. There may
be, it is true, some exaggeration in de
tails; but in the main, they were gen

They were performed under every con

and wife, Capt. P. J. Maitland and
others, well knew that in testifying to
phenomena which were exhibited, and
that too over their own signatures,
they would incur the ridicule of their
friends and associates. In fact all An

on the very spot where he wrought
all his wonders. The Mahatma Koot

this fact in the course of a long letter,
explaining why the Brotherhood de
clined to go on with tests which had
developed angry feelings among friends,
but had not produced the expected re
sults, excepting the cases of those ex
ceptionally intelligent and otherwise
qualified people who witnessed the per
formances. To those who wish to
make further inquiries the means will

ought to abstain from proclaiming the
iniquity of economic witnesses if he
doesn't wish to discredit his church.

Editor CLARIcN.-A matter that de
serves attention on the part of the po
lice jury is the line between the par
ishes of Calcasieu and St. Landry.
The old maps represent it as being
the line between Ranges Two (2) and
Three (3) West running North from
the mouth of Bayou Bleu. Is. this
correct? The Act of the Legislature
dividing the parishes says:
Act No. 72---Approved March 24th, 1840.
Commencing at the mouth of River Mer
mentau, thence up said River to the mouth
of the Bayou Nezpique, thence up said Ba
you to the South of BEAVER CREEK,
thence due North to the dividing line be
tween the parishes of Rapides and St. Lan
dry, &c., &c.
Now the above is the language of
the law on the subject, and as the line
between the parishes has never been
established-that is marked on the
ground-it should be done as soon as
it can be. There is already confusion
in the minds f tle people as to the
location of tdie line, and it can only
be established by marking it on the
ground-and then it must be done cor
rectly-that is by the two parishes
acting in conjunction-and the line
must be due North from the mouth of
