The sensation of the carupalgn In St. Louis tva the action of Dugald Craw ford, Role owner of one of the largest department stores of that city, in discharging lart Saturday twelve heads of departments in his store be cause, as he explained to them, he did not want any anarchists to breathe the air of his establishment. In part ing with his employes Crawford is reported as having said to them: "Spread the news throughout the city. Let it be kDown as far and as near as you choose that you are dis charged because you are in favor of free coinage of silver." As Crawford is a very wealthy man and a leader in the social and business life of the city his action naturally stirred up a commotion, especially nmong the silver democrats, and a fund of $1,500 was promptly subscribed to prosecute Crawford under the state law for "intimidating, coercing or un duly influencing tho choice of a voter." This action, and perhaps the cooling of Crawford's Indignation at his em ployes, resulted In a card from the merchant inviting the men to return to tlieir sovcral positions without loss of salary. "A man in anger," says Crawford in his card, "often makes mistakes, but 1 do not believe ho loses any of his manhood by admitting the error. I desire every man in my em ploy to vote as he pleases, but I believe that every man, when he care fully studies existing conditions, should vote for McKiulcy. To allow all of my employes to vote us they please and have ample time to do so I have decided to close the store of Crawford & Co. at 1 o m. on Nov. 3." So far as Crawford is concerned his acknowledgment of his folly ought to be accepted as an amende houorable by the discharged men, and further more his proposed action in closing his store on election day would be a good precedent for merchants in general to follow. It is fortunate also that this St. Louis incident has ocurr ed thus early in the campaign, as it will be of service to both employers and employed as illustrating the failure of coercion and the rights to the individual voter. It may be ad mitted that the present is an unprece dented campaign and that business intcrcts aro bound up in the issue of Nov. 3 to a greater extent perhaps than ever before in a national can vass. In these circumstances It is natural that there should be the keen est anxiety as to results. But great as are the business interests of the campaign the preservation of the purity of the ballot and the right of the people to decide by their votes what policy they wish to prevail are of far moro importance as affecting the perpetuity of republican institu tions, and coercion will do more harm to the cause of free government than the triumph of the principles of any party now before the American voters for their suffrages. As a matter of fact, however, it may be questioned whether there is as much danger from coercion as many persons think. In this city, for exam ple, there has been talk of coercion, but in most, perhaps in all, cases such talk when investigated seems to have for a basis but little more than Imagi nations and fears. It is agrave matter to coerce a voter, and few business men or corporations would care to run the risk of the experiment. That voter is unworthy the privilege of a free man who would vote against his convictions and against what he believes to be the best intereU of himself and of the people generally through fear that his vote may be displeasing to any fellow-citizen, what ever may be their mutual relations as employer or employed. Short campaigns are the order this year. Both parties in Bernalillo county made their nominations last week, and the Santa Fe county poli ticians did not get their tickets in the Held till this week.

The telegrams have announced that tho country banks are not returning their deposi',8 to the New York banks and as a consequence tho latter bad no surplus funds for the discount of commercial paper. For this unusual state of affairs the New York banks have no one but themselves to blame. They have preached panic and howled so long and loud over "M-cent dollars" that even country bankers have btigtin to disply a decided lack of that elusive quality known in financial circles as "confidence," and decided to hold on to their own reserves. It will be well if they continue to do so. There has been too much concentrating of funds in New York city of lite years, and it would be well if the law proposed by Mr. Teller were passed to prevent it. This practice of massing all the available funds of the country in a single city has been the fruitful cause of many financial ills, but it was never supposed that the New York batiks would find themselves deprived of these funds In so sudden a manner. Whether they realize the signiilcance o the change Is doubtful, for a gen uine reason is never given for any thing by a New York banker. All they know is that the currency sent out to move the crops Is not flowing bank, and they are at a loss to account for It. Doubtless this is another of the evils utributablc ptireiy to the "silver agitation," and The News is inclined to believe it is. The "silver agitation" has brought to the surface a lot of financial quacks and idiots who have talked about ''ii.l-eent doll ars" so earnestly and with so much apparent sincerity that the country bankers do not propose to take any chances at the hands of the sharp financiers on Manhattan islruil. They do not propose to send down goqd 1 no cent dollars to Wall slrrct and lie paid back in "53-cent dollars," which they know the New Yorkers would do if they only had the chance, and the countrymen do not intend to take any risk. The bankers of Manhattan is land are not paragons of honesty. They would pay iu "03 cent dollars" if tbey could. A Valuable 1'rchcriptlon. Edgar Morrison of Woi thington.lnd.
