In the sixtli Crosby caught one on

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."

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.

COLD AND SILVER.
t-x-Prrmiilent llurriitoii Discusses Our .Mon
etary System.
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. Ex-President Harri
son in August Ladies' Home Journal.
