What is thc. matter of this from a contemporary dng pretty good sound sense: "What is the present money' Is it good, bnd, or indifferent? It is pretty good, thank you! Then what is all tiiis fuss ubout tfbl standard; a double standard; bi-metalism; silver demonetization; jjold bugs; silver bugs; etc.? Lets yet to work, and earn and use it little of the good money $1,,0, HK),0(I0 already in the vaults of the country. Let's lift this nation out of the bondage of foreign competition; start the wheels of our shut-up mills atid factories. Money is plenty enough. What we want is a way of securing our share of it, by the only legitimate means the people ever have the oj portunity to earn It, by lalor, trade, or produce." Highest of all in Leavening MM AlS&OILUirEILY PURE SHE LIKES NOTORIETY. A Former Silk (ilrl Itounil to Keep Herself Itelore Hie Public F.ye. Florenco Gordon, a girl who was once an employee of the Richardson Silk mill in this city in KS.)2 and lit and whose home was in Bay City at tho time lias, according to reports, de veloped into a dashing adventuress and was arrested recently in connec tion with the gang known as the "Kong and Short" gang. When she left here about three years ago, she also left un paid bills at several dry goods stores and one or tAO milliner y parlors. The Press says: "Every member of the ''long and short" gang of organ ized store raiders which has terrorized Chicago for several months past is now in custody. Jesse Thames, alias Thompson, alias Harris, with half a dozen aliases to spare, the fifth mem ber of the gang who eluded tho police ollicials in Detroit last Saturday, has been arrested in Chicago in company with Florence Cordon, a Detroit young woman who accompanied him in his Might from Detroit. Miss Cordon is also under arrest. Miss Cordon is a Detroit girl who is well known to tho police of that city as a private female detective. When Thames left the Russell House Satur day afternoon, he departed without letting the clerk on duty know of his departure. Just before the supyer hour the Cordon woman appeared at the hotel and presenting a cheek for Thames' satchel, requested that it be delivered to her, explaining that the satchel leloiiged to her husband who was suddenly called from the city. At that time the Identity of the supposed "Mr. Richards'' was not known, and tho clerk did not know Miss Gordon. The young woman secured the satchel, which is supposed to have con tained some of the plundered wealth of the gang, and left with It- I.ate$atur J day evening the couple were seen walk ing on West Fort st. together and later boarded a train for Chicago. Miss Cordon is a prepossessing per son in her appearance, but could scarcely lay claim to being good look ing. She is alout feet or 7 inches tall, and a blonde of slight Ugure, weighing about pounds. She is po.-scssed of a rather large mouth, through the lips of which is displayed a perfect and pretty set of teeth. She is well known to all of the members of tho local detective bureau and many other members of the polico depart ment. Her home was or'ignall.y In Bay City, where her parents still reside. She came to Detroit about two years ago. She was an exceptionally bright woman in many respects, and was poss essed of a very fair voice, to perfect which she has been taking music les sons with the idea of adopting the stage as a profession. The young woman had two aspira tions, to become a detective and to ap pear on the stage, and she has gratified both of them in Detroit. As a detec tive she was employed as a spotter in several largo stores at different times, and was also called in on a few occa sions by police ollicers to assist them. She was in tbe easts of several amateur productions in that city and also ap peared as a chorus girl at the Whitney opera house. That Miss Gordon should have gone aw ay with Thames knowing his charac ter and intending to shield him, is not believed in Detroit and it was thought that her ambition to shine as a detec tive and incidentally to secure either the money which Thames had or a re ward for turning him up to the Chicago police with which to continue her pre paration for a professional life on the stage had moved her to the adventure.

Ever since tho resumption of specie payments, in ISTt), the treasury hus paid gold for greenbacks when gold was demanded, and has redeemed, in the same way, the treasury notes Is sued under the Sherman law. The Secretary of tho Treasury has never exercised the discretion given him to redeem tho latter notes in silver holding that his discretion was limited to such a use of silver as would not destroy the parity of our gold and sil ver dollars. And our secretaries have been right, I think, in holding that the parity of our gold and silver coins will bo destroyed the moment the gov ernment takes from the holder of a greenback or treasury note the election of the coin he will receive in exchange for it. If he wants gold, and silver is thrust upon him, the latter is depre ciated and the former appreciated. If the holder of a United States note cannot get gold at par for it he will pay a premium for the gold ho must have to meet a gold obligation. A premium on gold would at once drive gold out of circulation, for a coin that is at a premium cannot bo used in trade. No one is bound to pay gold to the government for any tax or other debt duo to it. So that practically the situation is this: The treasury holds itself bouud to give gold to everyone presenting a United States note, and has no way of compelling any one to pay gold to it. Such gold as it gets comes from persons who choose to take paper money for gold deposited at the mints or assay oflices, or to pay in gold coins some government tax. Formerly all duties upon imports were payable only in gold. Now when the gold re sef vo gets low it can only bo restored bv the sale of bonds, under the powers tion relating to tho resumption of specie payments.
