' the power in government of education.
War is education, though battle is brutal.
in an army there-must be discipline and
tliai- of itself is an'educating, force. This
kind of education finds its effects in Eu
rope more than with us. The pi ooerty
producing classes are ill a ratio with the
spread of education. Europe wants itio_
uev fur war, and hence European govern
meets encourage the education of the lOW
er classes. The need of Europa is money ;
'her - governments-promote the education
of the masses to obtain it.
The &mond for education comes from i
the people themselves. 11l this process I
ideas, not, things, begin to express theM- T
selves. Reason is on the side of educa
tion. The climate Of this country is stim
ulating and craves .education. Shipmas
ters_ appreciate this characteristic of. our
climate : the spirits and stimulants which
are used on the other side of the water
are not to be used with the same impniii. i
ty here. Our climate burns up nerve
matter : it stimulates Mimi . . - Every man
in New England by a convention Of ideas
must take care of himself. Weakness and
shiftlessness are crimes in New England.
These ideas drive whole masses of people
'to enterprise. Men find themsehtes born
to do something. The whole• movement
of American society is fervid.—Baseness

political atmosphere is- likewise fervid.
Business and politics are the heritage lif

We are thrown into a -tumult of excite,

Classes are not fit to govern.
,All this shot's that our giavernment is
the best government on earth,,, Every
,step in government is education : \ it, utf'
folds men. Knowledge is the sum orblun
dere : knowledge has found out thinge fay
running against them. In the light of
this general declaration -we pan not expect
, men of vagrant notions fit tre govern. The
cominunityis running trough a distinctive
I ,
growth. Men never have 'government
created for them, they must obtain it by
natural growths. Ministers must think
on the structure of society : , to make, the
millions think you mink agitate a subject..
Opposed to this condition of - things are
the European notions of patriarchal gov
ermitent. It is the distribution of poWer
—the power of that makes
110 result's of natural growth.
Living no experience iu finance, there
are men who'have determined this and
that or us concerning the currency. It.
is pro sett to make the govertinient the
sole disi user of money. ' This is a dan
gerous po cr to delegate—to invest the
whole fisca power iu the government is
to create a p ternal governMent, and re
vive the patri. mita' notions of : Europe.
Men-are delude( on the question of me.
ney : the science f finance is not their
forte. • Money is ho representative of
property : property is everything that
serves the *ants of m n, or is made by
skill or labor. ' Gold a - silver are pot
property, but the represe . tatives of pro
perty. Having property y u must have
something which represents operty, and
that is money. It is a historic. I doctrine,
live thousand years old. It has be n agreed
for five thousand years that gold nd sil
ver shall represent" property. You must
have something to' represent propert - Mt
you have representatives. rnni
in govee t.
As commerce has grown, we have found f
gold and silver necessary representatives.
Paper is good so long,':is it represents gold
and silver. Gold and silver are of such
bulk and weight that, convenience de
mands paper : mere ' convenience, there-
fore, leads to paper.
The best results of the greenback agi.,
tation is that thereby the. intelligence of
the people is increaSed.. When millions
begin to think they must think up:higher
and higher. Discussion and,agitation are.
the natural outlets of intelligence. Let
the people keep their months' open and
