It Is curious to see how Kf publican paper cling to exploded falsehood. Here Is the Montpeller Watchman sooerly declaring about the Slierrusn act: It was a temporary expedient, a buffer to deaden tbe shock tbat free coinage of stiver, a pet Democratic measure, wou'd hive com municated to tbe financial credit and busi ness Interests ot tbe country. Tbe Watchman apparently does not know that there was not a shadow of danger of a free coinage bill passing at tbe time tbe Sher man bill wis adopted, that In fact free coin age bad hre times been defeated upon square test votes In tbe bouse before tbe conference committee was appointed from wblcb came this monstrosity of legislation. Beyond that was also President Harrison's veto. Really, a paper of tbe general Intelligence of the Watchman ought to get tired of reiterating this Unit-worn silliness. But Its remedy lor tbe present troubles Is even wot se. It ai- gues tbat tbe government ought to Issue bonds, 9300,000.000 If necessary, for tbe pur chase of gold coin to make good tbe assur ance of tbe Sherman act that the parity of gold and silver shall be maintained. Here we bave the notion tbat it Is government's duty to "protect and promote private bust ness,'" In Its baldest shape. The practtca meaning of the Watchman's proposition Is that every head ot a family In tbe United States should load up with 20 of debt, to keep open a market for a few thousand silver miners and owners. Tbe tax payers of the land will see a more sensible way In stopping tbe purchases entltely, and let sliver mining de pend on natural laws as other business bas to do, and tbey will apply tbe same doctrine to any bu-loess thst Is being fostered In a similar way, at other people's expense, aod It will be a bappy day for American prosper ty wot n they do.

Burlington Free Tress. As wool Is selling In tbis country today a low as anywhere In Europe, tbe nonsense ol the Kree Press argument is obvious. The re moval of the duty could not postlbly make It cheaper, but would surely Improve prices by Increasing tbe demand of domestic wool to mix with foreign wools ibat must be Import ed any way because not grown In this country. This bss always been tbe ex perience. Trices bave always gone upward under free wool aod downward nnder btgb tariffs.
