Chandler favors Free Coinage of
W. t handler. ex-lnited States
senator an. I chairman of the Spanish
claims commission, has issued a sign
ed statement urging the remonet i.a

fix the ratio at "JO lo 1. but how he
would best maintain this when the
natural coinage ratio would be lt to 1
lie fails to explain. Hut the interest
ing feature of the announcement is
that an eastern republican should
concede the merit of a system of
coinage that will give people plenty
of im nev and the kind that is current
the world over. Mr. Chandler says in
the course of his statement:
"The simple and true way to enable
hina to pay her indemnity to the
United States, England, Germany and
France Js for these nations to remon
et ize silver at the new ratio of 20 to 1.
''Silver is the metallic money of
more than half the human race and

value as a metal only, and not as a
money, as gold would so fall if it
were demonetized. Four thousand
millions of silver is becoming has
practically become merchandise in
stead of money which it had been

poverty and distress to half the peo
ple on the globe.
"demonetize and the misery will
ease and China can easily pay.
"Moreover, it is lest for the United
States to be wise in time. When the
present bubble of fictitious capitaliza
tion, exaggerated values, and inflated
currency bursts and a money panic
follows there will be a mad rush for
the only teal money that which is
made of metal and that money has

during the last third of a century,"

More Pulpits Than Pastor.

Whv. with $00,000,000 a year spent,

churches, i.-i the supply of pastors so

DAILY SHORT STORY
A Detective's Adventure.
My chief called me into his private
office and, Knowing mo the following
telegram, directed uie to work up the
My non died last night suddenly while
apparently in perfect health. I fear foul
play. Send one of your host men.
Ernest Arbnckle. the murdered man.
was heir to a large estate. There was
but one blood relation left, a nephew.
Charles Himberly. a young man con
sldered lieyoud any iossille suspicion.
I knew nothing of Mr. Himberly, but
since he had n strong motive for the
crime I concluded to liegln with him,
especially as I could not learn of any
one else who had any motive at all. I
examined the body and. finding no llt
in the clothing, brought n magnifying
glass to lar on" the exposed parts, the
head, neckband hands. On the inside
or one or the lingers on the right hand
I found n minute puncture the size of
the point of a pin. There was certain
ly very little in this on which to base a
theory of murder, but I have been so
long accustomed to count every trifling
circumstance that I made a note of it.
a note which I soon forgot, for 1 con
fess I attached little Importance to it.
I was informed that Charles Himber
ly was a real estate agent. This was
all I could learn about him. and as
there were no other facts forthcoming
I disappeared and when I returned en
tered his office, prosperously dressed,
and told hini of a valuable piece of
property I was anxious to purchase
and desired him to sound the owner
as to whether he would sell aud. If so,
at what price. I further told him that
If it were known that I wanted the
property an. exorbitant price would be
put upon it, and I desired to proceed
upon a plan which 1 would develop if
he would dine with me in a private
room at :i well known restaurant.
Bimberly caught at the bait eagerly.
I gave him a good dinner, with plenty
of wine, and made myself so entertain
ing on general subjects that we did
not reach the topic in question till a
late hour. Then I expressed a wish to
be in a more comfortable place, as
there were many details to be gone
over which would occupy some time,
whereupon Bimberly invited me to his
rooms in a bachelor apartment house.
This was exactly what I wanted. My
object was to gain access to his rooms.
I had numerous talks with Bimberly
with reference to the promised pur
chase, always putting off the day when
I was to make u definite offer for the
property. One afternoon I called at
his office when I knew" he had an en
gagement for the evening and told him
that I would lie at his room prepared
to make an offer and, if it were ac
cepted, close the deal at once. He in
formed me that he would necessarily
be away till late, but that I was wel
come to pass the evening in his rooms
and he would see me at as early an
hour as possible. I went to his apart
ments immediately after dinner and
found him just going out. He invited
me to make myself comfortable and
I was no sooner sure that he was not
likely to return for some forgotten ar
ticle than I produced a bundle of skel
eton keys and proceeded to open every
thing I found locked. There was a
writing case in the room in which I
found a number of private letters, but
not a word in any of them to identify
him with the murder, though there
were plenty to indicate that he was liv
ing a fast life. I ransacked every cor
ner of this desk, and, although I -read
between the lines, I had my pains for
I was about to give up the search
when I noticed a small table covered
with a cloth. Lifting the cloth. I un
covered a single little drawer which I
was surprised to And locked. Not only
was it locked, but among all my keys
there was not one that would fit it.
Fortunately the table was delicately
made. I simply ripped off the top, ex
posing all there was in the drawer, a
small box that looked as if it might
contain Jewels. At this moment, hear
ing a step in the hall, I seized upon the
box, crammed it in my pocket, replaced
the top of the fable and hastily threw
the cloth over it. I had just time to
replace some articles I had removed
from the table and seat myself with a
book wheu the door opened and Bim
Nothing In his appearauce indicated
that he had suspected aud come back
to trap me, yet I knew such was the
case. He went to a closet, brought out
a decanter and glasses, then told me to
proceed to business. I made the best
possible effort to keep up my former
pretense, but felt that I had failed. He
politely told me that he would meet me
at his office in the morning before act
ing definitely, and I took my departure.
As I parted wl.h him he shook my
band, and it seemed to me that a seal
ring he wore ou his little finger scratch
ed my palm. I paid no attention to the
matter and as soon as I reached the
street crushed the box I had stolen un
der my heel. Its sole contents was a
ring with an unusually broad band, on
which was a small protuberance. I
pressed It and forced out the point of
It'not only occurred to me that this
was the means by which the murder
had been committed, but an attempt
had been made by the murderer to do
away with me. Rushing to a drugstore.
I cried, "Antidote for poison r then
sank down and became unconscious.
I recovered and the next day was
ready to procure Blmberly's arrest, but
the bird had flown. He doubtless sus
pected me, but at w hat point he began
to do so I could never decide. He left
th place as soon as it was discovered
that I would not die.
