BOONE, ATTORNEY An COUNSELLOR, wni.raatloelnaU the oourts an land IS) SSW " ToBiptatteaciontlTento all business a trusted t htm. , . MawMexloo laaiii Prom the Washington Post. It will, perhaps, remembered that the Post baa an several occatlooa In the past discussed certain silly and extravagant statements by cuckoo or ators and newspapers touching1 the floanclal condition of Mexico and the geaeral wortbltssness of the Mexican' liver dollar. In reply to the assertion so frequently made by "sound money" speakers that the Mexican silver dol lar was a thiol beneath contempt, od that free coinage of silver had brought the Mexican people t pen ury, the Post has already replied that the silver dollar buys as much in Mexi co as the gold dollar does here, and that instead of tobogganing down the steepest side of Avernus, Mexico Is prospering on thoroughly, healthy and egitimate lines. A bout a month age Mr. Allen, of Utah, delivered a speech In the bouse, relative to finance, and as part there of read a letter from Mr. A. V. Tem ple, manager of the Mexican bureau of nformation. Mr. Temple has been a resident In Mexico for the past twenty-six years, aod throughout that pe riod has been engaged in business and connected with financial and commer cial enterprises. It Is to be supposed, therefore, that he speaks with author ity when he says: "I would say that Mexican dollar buys te-day as much n this city as It did when I came here, and at that time a Mexican dol ar was worth $1.10 In gold in San Kranclso. The price of corn, beans, flour, wearing apparel, etc., is almost exactly the same as In former years. Of course, there are fluctuations dm to good or bad crops, but the average cost of all the various articles which go to make up the expenses of a family are almost exactly the same as when gold was at par." Of course, everyone who has visited Mexico aod In that way acquired in formation, knows this to be true. The orators and newspapers referr ed to, however, have been going calm' ly ahead reiterating the stupid falla cits In question even amplifying and aggravatlug them by adding that not onlv Is the Mexican laborer's silver dollar worth less than half of the Yankee laborer's gold dollar, but he doesn't eetas many of them for bis work. In a word, they bold up Mexi co as an awful example of the ruin and misery that follow In the train of sil- er coinage. lint Mr. Temple tells a very differ ent story, as will be seen: "You will note by the printed matter sent you the wonderful increase in the income of the covernmcnt, and also of tee Mexican Central railway, which think will coniDare favorably with that of governments or railroads on gold basis. Also, the price of Mexican securities has steadily been advancing n spite of the Increased premium on sold. The fact is that an abundant suppl) of good silver dollar., which everybody can get and everybody can spend, seems to make people more cheerful, harder workers, aod Induces the capitalist to go Into new enter prises. Although there are bank notes In circulation In this country, thev are represented by an actual store of silver dollar, so that at a moment's notice the sause can be con verted Into coin. They are, in fact, like the gold certificates of the United States, except that ours are Issued by locornorated banks. Mercantile fail ures arc rare, and manufacturing es tablishment, espclally those engaged in the manufacture of wol and cot ton, are paying large oiviunos. banks are also paying from 10 to 10 per cent a year on their capital slock. While the perfect peace and order which Mexico has enjoyed for the past twenty years have had a great ef fect on the development and prosperi ty of this country. I also believe that our silver basis has helped us prosper as much as any other cause. 'The premium on gold also tends to bring it to this country. European Investors, taking advantage of the premium on gold, are more willing to come here and make investments In mining, manufacturing, etc., than if this disparity between gold and stiver did not exist. While doubling their capital on bringing it Into Mexico, they can go Into production of articles for export which' arc sold for gold; as, T'a Caá Bollera The testimonials published in behalf of Hood's sarsaparilla. They are written by honest people, who have actually found in their own experi ence that Hood's sarsaparilla purifies the blood, creates an appetite, strengthens the system and absolutely aod permanently cures all diseases caused by I r pure or deficient blood. Hood's Pills for tho liver and bow els act promptly, easily, effectively. 3 Pr Price's Cream Baking Powder A Pur. Uraae Crease at Tartar Powder. for Instance, coffee, rubber, hides, vanilla, aod kindred products, so that practically ther double their capital and yet receive a gold interest on their Investment. "A silver basis seems to tend to the Increase of a larger number of small Incomes rather than a small number of larger ones." It seems to us that the "sour.d money" advocates han better an p Mexico as an object lesson. There Is enough to be said In favor of the gold basis without lying about silver In Mexico. Optic: The friends of free and un limited coinage of silver, and they are growing in number daily, owe mnch to the persistent aod patriotic efforts of Wharton Barker, editor of the Am,- crican, a weekly journal devoted to the discussion of live American issues and published In Philadelphia. He is a republican and protectionist, but he sees, as do all thoughtful men, that protection cannot meet the con- ditiousofthe future, single bacded; that it must be supplemented by free coinage, bringing the two metals to a parity, thus preventing the over whelming advantage now bcirg ac corded to silver-standard nvttioos, who are making long strides In indus trial development while we are, In times of peace, running In x) debt, with eur industrial energ.es at a standstill and our people lrokiog dis aster hard In the face. Thesecietary of the Interior has sent to the house an agreement nego tiated with the Indians of the San Carlos reservation, Arizona, for the relinquishment of part of the reser vation. He also submitted a draft of a bill to carry it into effect. The diamond drill of the W'blio Oaks Railroad company Is doing well in the coal prospects near White Oaks, going down at the rate of twen ty feet per day.

Every mounted policeman connected with the Central park squad swears by bis horse. J'o olhor animal, in his opin ion, is quite as good, sonml or well trained for the ofttlmes dirllcnlt work which they are called opon to perform. This pride in their horses has led to a friendly spirit of rivalry between the men, which is nudonbteilly the cause of the excellence of tho department. Tho stopping of a runaway in the drives or bridle paths is by lio menus nn easy un dertaking. Tho comparatively few seri ous accidents resulting from runaways, which during the greater portion of the year averiige more thnn 50 a niontn, speak well for the skill and daring of tho mounted squad. Sergeant Kgan, who has onnimuud of the sanad, de clares that any one of his men can give 'p's" and "q's" to any cowboy that ever straddled a horse. "We have hud 'cow punchers' In our ranks," said the scrgouct, "who could pink up a hnudkorchiof from tho ground while riding at broakueck speed, or throw a lasso to perfection, but when it came to taking their lives in their hands in stopping a runaway they were not in it with some of our New York boys who never mounted a horse until they joined tho squad. I'll warrant thit any of my men will cntch nny runaway that evor started in the park. Won I yon liko to see our system of stopping horses?" Baldwin was called in and the ser geant gave orders to have his horso sad dled. Vhen all was in readiness, the two men rode down the bridle path to give an illustration of the system which all the man have practiced and studied until they uow huve it down to perfec tion. Sergeant Egnn baited and Bald win, on his horse Harry, went down the path to got a good start In a moment be came flying toward the sorgoaut on a dead gallop. Egan s horse pricked up his ears, already scenting the work cut out for it. As Baldwin came nearer Egau's superb animal begun to move with gradually increasing speed until the supposed runaway was alongside, and tbon It ran neck and nock with Baldwin's horse. Reaching out, the sergeant grasped the bridle of Baldwin's horse, and his own stoed b"gan to pull back, coming to a complete standstill within ten yards. Eoveral more trials were made, the men taking turns al stopping each other. "Yt n seo, they cannot ge awuy from ns," eairt tho sorgennt, "as our horses understand thoir business as well the men. They never .allow a run away to get pr.st them. A stent chase is of ton a long chase. Under tho regu lations riders and drivers are allowed to move only at a certain speed within the park. A runaway of oourso always ex ceods this paco, and the policnmun's horso detects the rapid patter of hoofs as quickly as ho does himself. " NeW York Herald. KJneoln. Modest Fee. M. D. Hardin, one of the oldest Hit nois lawyers, tells of an instance where Mr. Lincoln was retained to assist two other lawyers iu the conduct of a casa of the Krcutost importance. "I will not say uow what the cuso was," suid Mr. Hardin, "but It was one of the greatest moment to ie state and of importance to the nation. The decision arrived at grows more stupendous in its results every duy. Eveu at the time of its set tlement thosn connected with tt knew 11 meant a great deal, and the two men who had been his colleagues consulted together after the triul as to the amount of the fee to be obarged. They decided that 5,000 was tho least they could take and concluded to send their bill for that amount But they waited for Mr. Lineólo and laid the case before him. They asked him what he thought they ought to charge. He ponderod over the matter for a time and finally said be thought his share ought to bo about $50. That was, be thought, pretty got d pay, considering that he had only give a little over day to the case." Chi cago Times-Horald.
