THE SUMMLll VACATION'.
'So you're doing the fashionable at Sylvan,

'Well, sir, I've a two weeks' vacation,'

meeting his employer iu the grounds of the
Sylvan Hotel, 'and I thought a little change

George Sinclair was a clerk at a salary of
nine hundred a year ; but, like many a New
York clerk, lie hail a craving after the for
bidden delights of what he termed 'tip-top
fashionable society.' And Kitty Barker, bis
fiancee, a trim little damsel, who stood be
hind tho counter ol a fashiouable fancy store
all day, and tried to add to the little sum
laid aiide for her wedding outfit by doing
fine Bilk embroidery at night, admired his
spirit and enterprise.
It never occurred to her that it might per-
liaps lie as well for mm tn save hi" money
towards the furnishing of tho ideal home
they had so often talked about, instead of
aping the airs unci graces of those who could
so much better afford to make fools of them
selves than he could.
'Georgo 1ms such refined tastes.'said Kitty,
who believed devoutly in her lover.

ly emissary of old Boreas canirlit tlm ht from
her head, a daintv tov of whitn chi

nan way down the hill.
In an instant Mr.Sinclairhad given chase,

And then she read the cruel document a
second time and began to see through the
gloss and glamour ol Sinclair's skillfully wov
en net-work of words.
'lle has found BOine one whom bo likes

tified pang. 'Some one prettier, fairer,more

It be so. .Ue is right when he says that 'the

which set Mr. Sinclair's heart at rest,

und that would have been confoundedly awk

vantage of a lovely moonlight night, when
his new inamorata was sitting by his side un
der one of the big elms on the lawn, while
the band played the "Serenade from l'as

verandah, and proposed and was accept

annoyed and nervous,
'I always said, old fellow,' said be, 'that
you were born under a lucky planet.'
And Sinclair himself felt as if he were
walking in a glorified atmosphere of bank
bills and cloth of-gold.
They were sitting in love-like fashion un
der the trees, next day, when a sharp, high
pitched voice from the esplanade called
'Sarah 1 Sarah I Where are you ? Where's
the key of my room, and what do you mean
by this sort of conduct? Wasn't itan especial
part of your contract that no followers should

a sharp-voiced lady of a certain age con
fronted his lady love with a vinegar acerbity
'Take yourself off, young man,' said she,

Sarah courtesied, stammered, and excused
herself, ending by being swept away in the
wake of her impe-ious mistress.
'I'll see you again,' she said to George,
who stood looking on In mute wonder and
'No, you'll not, Miss,' said George Sin
clair to himself. 'I've been said once, but
it will be my own fault if I am so'd twice.

It was too true. Miss Moneyford had sent
the artful Sarah Koxbury on In advance to
secure the rooms and engage for her fitting
reception, and Sarah, being of a dramatic
turn, had conceived the brilliant Idea of play

little while, Her masquerading had not been
'And If Missis hadn't happened along bo
sudden,' thought the mortified and discom
fited maid, 'I should have bad a real gentle
man for a husband.'
From which it may be inferred that Mr.
George Sinclair had not been altogether
frank with his fair companion in the history
of his life and station.
Mr. Sinclair went back to New York, and
called at the house of Kitty Barker.
'She can't see you, sir,' said the widow

rooms. 'She's a tryin' on her weddin'
'Her wedding dress ?'
'Yes, sir,' said Mrs. Lomax. 'She's to be

is the junior partner of the firm where she
worked. He's always fancied her, and now
that she's freo from alt prior engagements,'

And Mr. Sinclair kept avay, feeling him
self to be exceedingly depreciated in the

Instinct of Birds.
In tho Btormy part of the year this last
winter a Peninsular and Oriental steamer en
countered rough weather, and, as often hap-
pcus at such times, many seagulls hovered
near the ship, and even came on board. One
allowed itself to be caught, and It was found
that it had a fish bone stuck in the eye in
such a position as not absolutely to destroy
the sight, hut penetrating an inch and a
half. It might have had a fight with a fish
or got transfixed seeking its prey. The doc
tor of the ship took the bird, extracted the
bone, applied a soothing remedy to the
wound, and let It go. It flew away, but
returned the next day, allowing: litsclf to be
caught. The doctor examined the wound,
which was progressing favorably, applied
more of the remedy, and left the bird go a
second time. It flew several times around
the ship, and then departed to return no

AND FIlF.n EYIM OF ENFORCED
nil ESUMnrON ARRAIGNMENT
Senator Dill spoke to a large and enthu
siastic audlenco at Greensbttrg, September
25, on the financial Issue, and discussed it
within degree of ability and candor that com
manded the hearty approval of his friends.
His bold declaration In favor of the honert
payment ofall debts, public and private ;
his denunciation of repudiation in every
form even under color of law, and his mas
terly defense of the constitutional standard
of money as the only rock of safety for gov-
eminent and people, elicited the most enthu-
slastlc responses from bis hearers j and his
protest against the arbitrary regulation of
the volumo of enrrency by Presidents or Cab
inet officers or by the canrictoui views of
Congress, was received with universal tavor.
His review of the resumption policy of Sec
retary Sherman gave the clearest compre
hension ol the question to all, and when he
exposed the needless enlargement of the
debt and the contraction of currency to com
pel resumption, when the wholo business
energies of the country are prostrated, he
startled bis audience with the conclusive-
nesa !of his reasoning on the subject. The
speech throughout was listened to with the
most profound interest, and did more to set
tle the views of the community on the moc
ey question than anything that has been pre
sented to them. The following Is an ab
stract ot tne financial part of bis speech :
Senator Dill said that he had no flexible
platitudes to offer about honest money and
the houest payment of private debts, and the
honest maintenance of the national faith-
platitudes which could be as plausibly in
terpreted alike to the hard money and soft
money voters. The solvent cltiien or the
government, he said, that does not pay
unuts according to the terms of the contract,
must be dishonest, and no technical plead
ing, no cunning sophistry, can even excuse,
much lessjustlfy it. The credit of the gov
ernment is its very life, and he who would
destroy it by repudiation, however indirect,
is as ruuen its loe as ne wno levies war
against it ; and the private citizen who has
the ability to pay, can in no way within the
lines of iutegrity, repudiate his debts or any
part of them, even if it were possible to do
it under color of law.
THF. CONSTITUTIONAL STANDARD MONET,
Ours is a government of law, and justice
and equity are the leading attributes of our
laws. The Constitution to which the De
mocracy has ever bowed with reverence.has
fixed gold and silver as the standard money
of the Union, and it is in accord with the
accepted theory of the civilized governments
of the world. From that standard there can
be no departure without violence to law and
destruction to public faith and private pros
perity ; but tho standard money Is not now,
never has been and never will be the chief
circulating medium of a country so varied
in its pursuits as ours. Paper currency is
indispensable in all countries, and more in
dispensable here than in any other nation,
because of the greater individual onergy and
thrift of our people. In no other nationali
ty do the poople eo generally possess and
so freely use money in their ordinaty ways
of life as in the United States, and in no
other nationality Is wealth so widely diffus
ed and so fickle in its smiles as here, where
intelligence is limited to no class anel honor
and fortune aro open to all. A larger vol
unie of money in proportion to population
p, therefore needed in this country than in
any oth:r, and it should be limited solely
by the wants of legitimate business, and not
by the arbitrary decree of a President or a
Secretary af the Treasury or by the ebbs and
flows of political tides in Congress. Ail
such reglations of the volumes of currency
stamp uncertainty upon our financial policy
and paralyze industry by ceaseless distrust.
Wo have seen a President arbitrarily and
lawlessly direct the isue of millions of cur
rency when a financial panic threatened the
defeat of the party that happened to rule at
the time ; and when ono Executive can do
so without accountability, what may not a
futuro President or Minister of the Treasu
ry do to promote or hinder the prosperity of
the nation as cupidity orambition may dic
tate? MONEY TO RE MADE E0.UAL WITH COIK.
In my judgment there is but one sound
rule by which to regulate the currency of
the country. It is to maintain it as equal
in value with gold and silver, the constitu
tional standard of money ; to maintain the
simplest and cheapest channels through
which it can reach legitimate trade,and lim
it it solely by the legitimate demands of the
business interests of the country, Irredeem
able paper is a lie upon its face, for all mon
ey contains on Its face the promise to pay.
and it is as poison to healthy industry ; but
redeemable currency, maintained at equal
value with the constitutional standard of the
nation, should be accessible in such volume
as the varying wants of trade require. The
volume of currency should be beyond the
control of gatnbleis and speculator such as
have depressed all values in a day by lock
ing up money, and beyond the power of
partisan officials to employ it as a factor in
political campaigns, at the cost of the stabil
ity and trust of business.
IRREDEEMABLE PATER, AT TIMES A NE
CESSITY. There aro times in the history of all na
tions which sorely try the people and severe
ly test the fixed laws of public safety, and
such calamitous tides are readily seized
upon by the reckless and the corrupt to In
augurate r reign ol license in placo of the
reign of law ; but however exhaustively the
extreme powei of governments must be em
ployed to preserve government a the foun
dation of order and prosperity, the sancitity
of ordaiuod authority cannot be surrendered
without teaching universal contempt of law.

statutes, and finally, when thy did enforce
resumption but a little lo advance of Its
attainment by the nataral laws of trade,
they gave England her bitterest cup of mli-
lottune. There, as here, tesumntlon was
embarassed and delayed by the effort of am
bitious leaders to win the laurels of specie
payments, and there, as here, the Increased
distress of the people wa the result. We
have, in obedience to supreme necessity.
suspended Bpeclo payments and accepted Ir
redeemable paper for sixteen years as the
price or saving tho Union from dlsembor
ment. In the meantime the leral-tender
currency of the government has been affirm
ed by the highest judicial tribunal of the
Kepuhllc, and to Its intcrpre.atlon of the
law all must bow. The necessity of .war
gave us the national greenback currency ; It
now commands tho unqualified favor of the
people and its validity ts no lenger within
the bourdi of dispute. It is undoubtedly
the best currency the nation and th Rtt
have ever had, and It is now ono of the in-
eflaceble fortunes of our financial svs.
EVILS OF ENFORCED RESUMPTION AND
When war ceased, leaving us with a large
volume of Irredeemable currency among the
people, It became the duty of the govern
ment to do as England did bring about re
sumption by the natural laws of trade, and
await Its coming in such mnm-r as would
bring no needless shock to" bustsess or dis
turbance in the channels of Industry. With
the boundless resources of the country, witli
the exceptional energy of our people, with
the most fruitful crops from year to year.
with every element necessary to bring about
resumption without serious depression of
business, we have had the most sweeping
embarrassment and bankruptcy as the logic
al fruits of financial tinkers and pollticil
brokers who speculated on the woes of the
people. Enforced contraction of the curren
cy and now enforced resumption have nml
broken fortune, widespread Idleness In place
of requited labor, teriible want in tba midst
of plenty and given the country disorder
that is tho growth of despair. These evils,
which now afflict the nation mure profound
ly than even war itself, are not the offspring
of necessity. If they were the legitimate
prico of the preservation of our free inatitu
lions they could bo endured ; but tbey are
the Borrows which come from absurd au

REPUBLICAN FINANCIAL POLICY AVAILUBX
INCREASED DEBT AND BANKRUPTCY
The Republican financial policy holds the
words nf promise to the ear only to break It
to tho hope. We aro told that money Is
abundant. So it is where it is not needed.
We are told that banking is free to all. So
it is to thn'e who are willing to lose by
banking. Money is a drug in the great
money centres. Millions can there be bor
rowed at low interest on government bonds
the securities held only by those who have
no need to borrow, but your farms, your
stock of goods, your forests of boundless
wealth, your individual energy and integri
ty, none of these are foundations f credit
and you can borrow only from the usurer.and
your values aro steadily shrlnkiig because of
the universal distrust that prevails in all chan
nels of enterprise. We aro fold that contrac
tion has not, been tho policy of tho present ad
ministration. The statement is false. It is
not only false as to the record, but the record
is essentially false es it is presented to the
public. On tho 1st of January 1875, the pa
per currency of the country was 9782, 691,-
1C5 ; on the 1st of June 1878, it was official
ly Igivcn at 687,390,097 a contraction of
95,201,OG8, but tho contraction that is now
in progress is not visible in tho official state
ments of tho Treasury. Secretary Sherman
is determined to resume specie payments,
whether tho country is ready for it or not.
The debtor must pay whether he is sol
vent or insolvent, and the resumption
policy of tho republican party is the great
source of tho idleness and prosti alien which
prevail in business circles to-day. While we
are regaled with treasury bulletins telling of
the refunding of the debt and of the strong
condition of the treasury, it is not told that
President Hayes and Secretary Sherman
have increased tho funded debt $120,673,970
Bioco they came into power, and the annua
interest paid to-day, notwithstanding the re
duced bonds issued, exhibits annual increase
of 11,510,918, over the annual interest paid
when tho present administration armed it
self with fraud and forced its way into rower
in defiance of the solemn verdict of the nation.
These aro tho figures f'rOni tho record and I
challenge contradiction. President Hayes
found the dobt $1,697,697,530 when he came
into ofiico, to-day it is 1,818,670,500. I do
not chargo that this money has been nrofli-
gately wasted and that tho increased debt ex
hibits tho excess of government expenditures
over receipts ; but I do charge that the debt
has been needlessly increased ; that the mon
ey received for (lie new bonds and applicable
to tho redemption of the old bonds, is locked
up in the treasury, withdrawn from the chan
nels of business, to enable Secretary Sher
man to force resumption in January next, re
gardless of the bankruptcy ho gives to the
producing classes or tho cost to tho tax-pay
ers. It is simply multiplying tho already
intolerable, eultcrings ot tho people to
enable a political trimmer to win the empty
Dauuio 01 resumption by a torced policy that
deals destruction on every side. When re-
sumption can corneas the gift of a prosperous
peoplo by natural laws and the logio of re
quited industry, it can 001110 as a national
blessing ; but until it can so come, they who
attempt to enloroo it must bo hope ess neom
petcnts or the deliberate authors of wanton
distress to the country,

we must find some means to rovivc our indus
tries and restore-gcncral prospcrityto tho couiv
try, and then resumption will come itself
and come to stay. Unti then.it cannot
come but with tYesh ovils in Its train. No
law can force it, unless Mr. Sherman' fatal
policy bo sustained, by which the Treasury cut ,

and then keep it in the Treasury vault, m.
that no further redemption Bhall be ncccssan.
Tho government can thus resume and tho in
dustries of the nation perish as tho price of
ronumpnon. Banking must be made free is ,
fact as it is now only in name. Our present
national banking syetcm offers an illimitable
volnmo of currency, but it practically for the
ncrease of money by tho onerous exactions
imposed upon banks. Tho banks now pay
some 118.000,000 of taxes, national, state and
munctpal, and nearly 7,000,000 a year in na- 3
tional taxes alone, all of which tho borrower 1
must pay in addition to tho legitimato value
of loans, and the only channel by which money
can reach the peoplo is so costly and compli- i
cated that borrowers out of tho great money
centres, find no money to lend, and capitalisU
