I%’eeil of Jtoro Silver Money* The reasons for fully legalizing silver as money of this country are numerous and weighty. One of them i» that the supply of gold is entirely inadequate to furnish a i sufficient circulating medium. The mines of the United Stated produce about i32,0i)0,000 worth of gold annually, nearly all of which goes j t-, the mints. Subsequently about $14,000,000 worth of it is consum ed in the arts, leaving only $lB,- 000,000 as the annual increase of our gold snop'y. without reference to the quantity exported or im ported. This leaves only $12,000,- 000 a year for the entire outside world's increase of money. Our annual production of silver from 1878 up to 1892 was upwards of $30,000,000, and what sort of pro duct can so reasonably and natur ally supply the utter inadequacy of*so United‘a substance as gold, for the world’s money 1 There is not the slightest danger of this country’s being either flood ed witji foreign silver or overloaded with its own. This is only a “bear” howl of the monometalists. The world’s present relative production of gold and silver is 59 per cent, silver. One hundred years ago the proportion was 76 per cent, silver. The operation of the law of 1890 created no panic, caused no alarm, injured nobody, unless it be the gold brokers of London and N< w York. The gross aggregate supply in London, New York and San Francisco, the three great silver centers, has been reduced chiefly by Indian absorption, from over 15, 000,000 ounces to less than 7,000,- 000 ounces, and yet we were told that we were overloading the country with silver by the coinage of 4,000,000 ounces a month. * A “free-coinage” law providing that 374.25 grains of pure silver should command and be worth 31 at the mints would at once enlarge the absorption of silver by India China and Japan, and allow our* vast and constantly increasing do mestic trade absorption of money to maintain the money parity of gold and silver. Our example would, in all probability, be iol followed in continental Europe. Neither is an international ratio and agreement necessary. Up to 1865 there was no general consent even among a few of the commercial nations, as a ratio for gold and sil ver. The Latin Union, existing from 1865 to 1874, did not embrace a larger population or one doing a greater business than that of the United States today, and that Union did not aim to fix the mar ket value of either metal. Fiom time immemorial the European nations have differed in coinage ratios. The great demand for this legis lation li<>s in the necessity for an increase of money in the United States commensurate with our growth in population, wealth and business. That there is such a scarcity was forcibly illustrated by the “hard times,” lasting through over a year, consequent upon the failure of the Baring* Bros, and the sudden drain of gold from this country. The supply should be adequate not only for the financiers, , but for the common people. It is the duty of congress to re store the coinage system of the United States which was founded with the mint in 1792, and which t was successfully and continuously maintained for eighty-one years . thereafter, and which was surrep- titiously and fraudulently over . thrown in 1873 A remonetization law is one in the interests of the people, and with a “campaign of education” properly and vigorously conducted they can be made to see it.—Port land Telegram. What is generally considered to be the most weird and picturesque lighthouse under American control is that on Tillamook rock, built on a surf swept crag of basalt about 30 miles south of the mouth of the river. The Astorian says it was a stupendous task to build that light. The great ditficulty in approaching the rock, even in the smoothest weather, the narrow sloping sides, the distance from this city,which is the nearest base of supplies, made it a matter of delay, danger, diffi culty and expense. When the work was ordered it was a long time before a force of men started to do anything. The first day, in effecting a landing, the foreman of the, working party was drowned. Four days after four men with hammers, drills, bolts, provisions, fuel and a stove, and a canvass tent, managed to get, on the rock, and a few days later, five men more got there and the work began. It took three years of unremitting labor and great expense. It is built of stone, brick and iron, and is inaccessible for months at a time Some night the whole thing will be swept away. Today Mr. W. W, Ward brought to the Herald office a collection of oranges and lemons he had just taken from h’s trees out under the Arizona can il a few miles north east of this city. The oranges are what is known in Florida as the Majorca, highly colored, rather under size, very rich and fragrant. They have hung on the trees all winter and show not the slightest indication of frost. The lemons are bright large size of the Villa— franca variety, perfect in form, full of jnioe and have also hung on the trees all winter without showing frost. There is no question of the success of these fruits in this region of country; the only drawback to the business is that we should have several thousands more acres in oranges and lemons than we have. O —Herald. The cut rate on travel across the continent will bring thousands of people to California this winter. What is Arizona going to do about it? Those who have visited us this winter have been surprised and de lighted. Our climate is as good as anywhere in California. We also have attractions to show. What shall we do? Cm we not quit this petty business now being indulged in and all join hands for Arizona? It is high time it was done and we say right here and now. woe to the mm, paper or party that continues this detraction of Arizona and that upholds her detractors. Praise, not criticism, is demanded. Some of this overland travel would stop here if the travelers could ne made to know what we have here.—En terprise. Gladstone has resigned, Rosebury is Premier, and parliament was prorogued by the Queen in a fifteen line speecch. Gov. Hughes is all right and the Courier has no doubt about his serving out his term. — Courier. oneCeut a Mile Would Pur. President Roberts of the Penn sylvania railroad, spoke words of truth and soberness in declaring that on railroads the luxury of the rich is paid for by the fa**es of the poor. “Limited” trains, palace cars, sleepers and the like do not pay thpir way. The plain, ordinary passenger does. Now, there are only a limited number of people who want “limited” trains. The numh-r who will travel in an ordi nary way if fares are chea-p*enough is unlimited. If a three hour train between New York' and Philadel phia at $1 were run twice a day it would be jammed. The trains on which $1 extru is paid oft«n lack a full load. The “Hungarian plan” succeed not because of uniform fares, but bacause of low fares for the most ordinary accommodations and a low rate of speed. Travel doubled in a few months and has. gone on rising month by month. The roads are making money and the hahifc of travel is widening and extending. The first American line which runs trains at one cent a mile with no sleepers and no ex tern aeeommodations will he amaz ed at the travel and its stockhol ders will be amazed at the profits. —Philadelphia Press. Uisa Grande is enjoying an ag ricultural boom. It is only a mat ter of a little time when evorv available foot of this valley, will be under cultivation and yield abun dantly the good things of earth. Though time drags with weary feet take our prophesy to your minds; the iron horse will shriek in our valley a long loud note of welcome before many months have passed.— Tribune. There are over 800 men at work on the Prescott end of the North and South road. Grading on this end will commence in a few days. It is expected that the road will be completed to Phoenix by August Ist. Then it will push oh through this section toward the southeast. From Arizona for three years past has come the earliest carload of American raisins shipped east. The season there is ahead of that of Southern California and the atmos phere is peculiarly suited to the curing of raisins. Albuquerque Citizen. There are said to be in England one hundred and twenty thousand barmaids of licensed public houses whose hours of work average from fifteen to eighteen on week days and from seven to nine on Sundays with only one Sunday off per month. The capacity of the Chino, Cal., sugar factory is to be doubled. The output will hereafter be refined at the factory instead of being sent to San Francisco for that purpose. The meeting of the Democratic Territorial Committee did not ma terialize at Phoenix last Saturday. Maybe some of them were hiding to prevent the securing of a quorum, a la Congress. A famine is Raid to prevail in the Starr section of Texas. Ninety per cent of the sheep, cattle and horses are dead. Scarcity of rain is the cause. Col. Posten, who was severely hurt a couple of weeks ago, by fall ing from the bridge at Yuma into the Colorado river, is now able to be around. No. 28.
