One of the officers elected at the alleged bimetallic" gathering in the East last week said "manufacturers have Just been aroused to the fact that manufaclarvr In sliver nations are underselling them In their own markets," Instanced the cheap cost of production of buttons and bi cycles In Japan and of carriages In Mexico, and cited these things as reasons for adopting 'Tree coinage at t to 1" in the Vnited Slates. The argument Is not a new one. but It Is astonishing that workmen In this conn try have not awakened to an understand ing of Its animus long since. The mean ing of this plea for "free sliver" at an Impossible ratio Is that the cost of pro duction here would be lessened by cut ting down the buying power of wag.. Only In that way could goods b pro duced here so much more cheaply than now that they could be sold in open com petition with those made by the very low priced labor in Jaan. Mexico and some other countries, such as Chini and India. The theory Is that with the breaking down of the currency unit to half the buying power of the dollar In gold the wages of the toiler would remain nomi nally the same number of dollars per week ax now, but actually only worth half as much for the buying of the things on which the tollers and their families subsist. The cost of producing manu factured articles would therefore be re duced to the point at whlrh the product could be sold in ocmpetition with that offered by the low-priced labor countries. The argument Is as fraudulent as the general claim that free silver worth SO cents cn the dollar would benefit work men. The same person said In another portion of his speech that machinery ex ported from England to Japan "will be F operated at one-eighth to one-quarter the cost of what we pay for labor." If j this be true It is idle to talk about the! ,. ,. , , . . , , j posalbillty of meeting the competition by I reducing the pay of American labor even) one-half. There still would remain so ' terribly wide a margin of relative cheap- j ness that the workers in this country : would not stand any chance of securing t the products of their labor sold where j the Japenese goods could be obtained on j equal terms as regards duties. Such I competition would not be possible with- out cutting down the wages of American labor to one-quarter of the present wage scale, and that means almost absolute, starvation. j But what would our wage classes say lo such a plea? How can th presuma-1 biy intelligent itauers in the trades union gatherings stand up before their less enlightened hearers and dellbentely advise them to vote or 5o-cent free silver dollars when the men at the head of the fraudulently called "bimetallic move-' ment" proclaim that one chief reason for j wanting free silver is that It would cut down the buying power of American ' wages one-half? It is a standing wonder that any of the i workers ctn be gulled by appeals which' carry with them their own condemnation when looked at with the eye of common sense. Granting all that is claimed for the good done by trades unions in rail ing the compensation of labor In the past, the whole of the benefit would 1 one u.ow uy uie auopuon or) After suffering for over tbri years ' free coinage at 14 to 1."

Reports are again rife that Governor ' Morton of New York, is seriously eon-1 sidering the question whether he should ! not by some indirect but authoritative announcement put himself before the i country as a consenting, if not eager ' candidate for the Republican nomination ! for president of the United State, When a report of a similar character found ' curency some weeks ago his friends took ! occasion to discredit It on the ground that Governor Morton was too old ond j exiierienced a politician to adopt ho ques tionable a method of procedure, the ef fect of which would clearly be to put him at a disadvantage with competitors who have observed what has been uni versally conceded to tie a wise and dis creet reticence. There are not many men In this country, nor ever have been, who could afford to put themselves in the j artiiinie r.r .okii,., nr tho ! 9 1 'i or a presidential nomination. However ambitious men may have been for that great distinction, and however notorious the fact of their ambition, they neem to have been deterred by a certain sense of propriety, and of deference to what may be called the regard for appearances, from any open or public manifestation of their desires or hopes In that direction. It may be a fiction that the presidency la too high an office to be openly sought ! mttv, and that it seeks the man instead f I ting re ached In a scramble; but If Mellon, it is one of those pleusing delu sions in which the peiple delight, and whlrh consequently hav to be reckoned aiih lv polttlclnna or ordinary thrcwd now. Hence It hapHns that presidential candidates who arc seriously considered permit their frlcn.la to do th pushing, and diligently refrain from avowing their canJldacy themselves.
