Since the silver resolution has been
passed by the senate anil beaten in the
house, it seems in order to ask its ad
vocates what they have guined They
have not disturbed the money markets
i;or alarmed public feeling in regard to
the condition of the treasury. They
have made no progress toward bank
rupting the govew'jiuent or forcing it to
a silver basis. They have not shown
greater strength in the senate than was
expected, and in the house they have
fallen much behind their expectations.
The solid resistance of the republican
majority in that body shows a much
firmer adhesion to the principles of the
republican platform than any of the
silver men anticipated. What has been
gained in this latest campaign against
the gold standard? Nothing in votes,
and much less than nothing in argu
ment, for the debate in the senate left
the silver men in a less defensible posi
tion than they have ever before occu
There is no indication of increase in
the popular demand for silver coinage.
On the contrary the prevailing temper
in all business centers, even at the west
and south, has been steadily turning
against the advocates of that policy.
The monetary conference at Indianap
olis showed a much stronger support
from lowa and other western states
than appeared a year ago, and even
from the south there came abler and
more fully representative delegations
from commercial cities. The truth is
that the silver men are concentrating
the opinion of the whole commercial
world against them, and they do not
appear to be gaining outside of com
mercial centers. Neither the farmers,
who want something better than 40-
eent dollars for their wheat, nor the
wage-earners, who prefer honest dol
lars for their wages, are leaning toward
the free-silver policy. In the western
mining camps it retains its hold, but
everywhere else it appears to be losing.
This is natural, because the silver in
terest has broken away from its bi
metallic associations. The light of the
silver men has in large measure ceased
to be an effort for bimetallism, and has
become more openly an effort for sil
ver monometallism. It is no longer
denied, even in debate in the senate,
that the purpose is to bring about pay
ment ot debts in silver, without regard
to its depreciation in value. Not long
ago it was always claimed by silver
men that they desired no debasement
of the monetary standard, and believed
that free-silver coinage would lift sil
ver to par with gold in the world's mar
kets. That pretense has been almost
wholly abandoned, and instead there
appears the claim that the 40-cent dol
lar may be properly paid to creditors
because coin, and not gold coin, was
nominated in the bond.
Efforts for international bimetallism
are greatly embarrassed by this new
attitude of the silver forces. It can no
longer be claimed that they are seek
ing a union of commercial nations on a
bimetallic basis. Instead they are
visibly leaning toward abandonment
of every such effort, and toward prefer
ence for a silver monetary standard
alone. It is already plain, too, that this
change in the attitude of silver men has
its influence upon the tone of public
opinion. Many thousand men who
were earnestly in favor of bimetallism
have found themselves altogether hos
tile to the more recent attitude of the
silver men, because they are com
pelled to realize that the efTort of the
silver party is no longer for bimetal
lism. but for silver monometallism.—

The culminating triumph of the sys
tem of protective tariffs applied to
American industries is that it haa
taught the old world that low wages do
not of necessity insure low cost of pro
duction. It is simple truth that the
manufacturer of iron and steel poods
in the United States pays from 30 to 80,
or even 100, per cent, more for his labor
than his European rival, and that,
though he has to haul his raw materia*
ten times as far from the mine to the
furnace and shop, he produces a better
article at a lower cost. In its beginning
protection increased the cost of some
articles to the American consumer, but
this was during a short stage of com
mercial existence. Protection stimu
lated output, and stimulation of output
involved fierce competition for posses
sion of the home market, and that re
sulted in low prices. At last the AtiTer
iean output has exceeded all possible
demands of the home market, and for
eign trade has become a necessity. To
the astonishment of Europe it is proved
that goods made by men who earn from
$1.50 to $1 per day can be sold as cheap
ly as those produced at a labor cost of
from $1 to $3. America is teaching Eu
rope a lesson in sociology.
The low-paid laborer of Europe often
is a tool rather than a mechanic. He
works as he was taught to work by his
father. He improves upon nothing; he
discovers nothing. He eats, he sleeps,
he works; he does not think. The bet
ter paid artisan of America is better
educated, more ambitious and infinite
ly more inventive. He is paid far more
than the European, and he lives upon a
far more liberal scale, but he produces
far more and of better quality, al
though he works fewer hours in each
day. The European plan has worked to
the degradation of the workman, the
American method has worked to his
betterment. Thus we now are able to
produce pig iron at from two to three
dollars per ton less cost than rules in
England, and this saving pays ocean
freight and leaves a margin of profit on
foreign sales. We are selling steel rails
to London, and covering the roads of
Europe with American bicycles, and
are putting American sewing machines
into European shops and houses. We
are furnishing Japan, China, Australia
and British Africa with steam war
ships, locomotives, electrical appli
ances, and all materials of railway
It is, paradoxical as it may seem, to
the high wages that our protective sys
tem fostered that our success in foreign
trade is due. Competition for possession
of the largest and most profitable home
market of the world stimulated inven
tion, and the intelligent ambition of
our artisans made thein specialists nnd
inventors. Protection insured us a
home market, arid commercial activity
in that wide area lias strengthened the
arms of our commerce and manufac
tures till they have become able to,
reach out for and 1o grasp a large and
increasing share ot the trade of the
world.—Chicago Inter Ocean.
Hxtract from nil Addrenn Delivered
by Ex-CJov. Ilontwell.
Ex-Oov. Hontwell, who is now 80
3'ears old, in an address a few days ago,
spoke in part as follows concerning
gold, silver and bonds:
"As early as 1809, in my first annual re
port to eonpress, I recommended what be
came substantially the act of July. IV7O,
for the reissue of bonds, under which act
all the bonds issued have been passed or
"fn that act It was provided that the
bonds of the United States should be pay
able in coin of the then present weight and
"The question whether they should be
paid In silver or in gold was not the sub
ject of consideration. In 1569 and 1870 the
silver in a silver dollar—if one could have
been found, which ir fact was then im
possible—outvalued the gold which was
In a gold dollar.
"Therefore, there was no reason for dis
tinguishing that they should be paid in
silver, but as a matter of fact they were
made payable in coin,' and technically and
legally, perhaps, it must be admitted that
they who oppose the payment of these
bonds in gold have some foundation on
which to stand ar.d therefore we may as
well admit the fact.
"Now It happens that In these 30 years
silver has been depreciating until upon
the present value a silver dollar Is worth
only 43 cents in gold. What Is our an
swer to this?
"X think it must be that we mean to
be an honest people; that this catastrophe
upon silver has come wihout any agency
upon our part, whatever they may say.
The real culprit—the man who is respon
sible for all this apparent and real disor
der in the commercial world—is a man who
lived in the city of Pittsburgh, Charles
Hurlelgh, who invented the power drill by
which mountains have been penetrated,
the bowels of the earth have been laid
open and silver extracted in vast quan
tities such as could not have been com
manded if wo had had at our service the
men who built the pyramids of Egypt or
the Coliseum of Rome.
"Now, are the American people to take
advantage of this contract, or are they to
say, to be sure the word 'coin' Is used
In the bond, but we would do what we
would have done by us. We have taken
your gold, we will pay gold. And I know in
Massachusetts—this Massachusetts of ours
—that In the peril of the war, when the
light of day was like the darkness of n'.ght,
Massachusetts paid the interest on her
bond.sin gold, and the gold that went out
of the treasury sold in the markets of the
world for 150 and lfiO and 180 per cent,
premium, and no man whose face 1 have
teen or of whose observations I have heard
ever complained that an act of superlative
honesty in one critical time would not
tend to plant a similar honesty in the
"Now let us goto the country and say:
No matter what is in these bonds it Is
coin, but we will pay in gold coin. It
shall not rest upon this great country
with close to 100,000,C00 population, with
resources such as no other country has
ever seen, resources of which no half
crazed enthusiast ever dreamed—that thi9
country of ours with centuries of a future
shall carry down to coming ages the taint
that in those days of prosperity she sought
to shirk from the performance of an hon
est duty."

The Maine was regarded as one of the
most effective vessels in the American
r.avy. In speaking of her just after she
was putin commission a naval officer
said that she "is not a cruiser, but a
fighting ship, a floating fort. She is
meant strictly for business."
The keel of the Mnine was laiel in the
Brooklyn navy yard, in October, 1888.
The dimensions of the hull were:
Length over all, 324 feet 4% inches; at
water line, 310 feet; breadth of beam, 57
feet; mean draught, 21'/i feet; dis
placement, 0,048 tons. A sail area was
allowed of 7,135 sejuare feet, to be used
Work progressed slowly, for a plant
had to be built up. The vessel, without
armor anel fittings, was launched No
vember 19, 1890, in the presence of a
great crowd anel with much ceremony,
her sponsor being Miss Alice Tracy
Wilmerding, granddaughter of Secre
tary Tracy, then at the head of the navy
department. Her official trial took
place in October, 1894.
The Maine was a twin-screw, armored
turret vessel of the belted cruiser type,
that is, having an armor belt to protect
the vitals of the ship, even though the
other parts of the construction should
be riddled with shot.
The Maine hael fe>r protection against
an opponent's projectiles an armor belt
12 inches thick, tapering to seven inches
below the water line. The ends were
unprotected by side armor, but at both
ends there were transverse armor bulk
hends of sufficient thickness to deflect
nny projectiles that might reach so far.

Sagar Cane In Nutrition*.
It has been remarked that the ne
groes in sugar-cane regions depend to
a considerable extent upon the juice of
the cane for nourishment. By the use
of Mosso's crgograph, I)r. Barley founel
that sugar promoted muscular power
wonderfully. On a fasting day it in
creased his ability to work 01 to 76 per
cent. Taking ordinary meals, he found
that eight and three-fourths ounces per
day increased his work capacity 22 to
30 per cent. In these days, when ath

stimulants for immediate preparation
for their contests, it might be interest

possibly injurious preparations some

To Whom Tt May Concern;
I can most cheerfully recommend Pe-ru

in cases of catarrh and other diseases of the
mucous membrane. This remedy has estab

the greatest possible worth and genuineness.
I have known Dr. Hartman for a number

of the leading c itizens of this city, a man of
the very highest standing and character in
the community.
Respectfully, Samuel L. Black.
