The Currency Issue In Brief.
An interesting catecnism nns ueon

nose cuitor wrote tne nt. i.uuih pianit.
It explains in few words why an abrupt
change from the gold to Hie silver stand
hrd In this country woula be disastrous.
It also shows that while the Republi
can party Is opposed to any radical
experiment at a time when business by
.reason of Democratic tariff blundering
Is already depressed and excitable, It
proposes nevertheless to keep the coun
try's large amount of outstanding all-
.mm n.d . . . r .... ,n I V.- .,1t .... J

Ha face value. This Is the catechism:
Q. What Is the whol body of currency
of the L'nlted States today? A. Paper,
8475,000,000; silver, till, 000,000; gold, IG12.0W,
000. Q. What Is the existing money stand
ard of the country? A. Gold, by means of
which nil the sliver and nil the paper ara
worth 100 cents to tho dollar. Q. What
would be the effect If we should abandon
the existing gold r.tandard? A. All the
gold would leave tho country In accord
ance with the never questioned law that
superior money will not remain In a
country where an Inferior money Is the
standard. Q . What nmnunt of money
would be withdrawn from the country If
the silver standard should be substituted
for the gold (standard? A. Six hundred
and twelve million dollars, contracting the
currency to that amount and crippling tho
country accordingly. Q. If tho silver
Standard were substituted for the exist
ing gold standard, what would bo the af
fect on the $U10,CH),000 of silver now worth
100 cents to tho dollar? A. The entire
quantity of silver dollars would be worth
their weight In silver per ounce, which va
ries from week to week like the price of
wheat, and the Immediate effect would bo
to reduce the (610,000,000 to 105,000,000, tho
present value of silver per ounce in the
coins, thus contracting the currency of
the country to this additional amount,
' making a total contraction of 1917,000,000.
Q. What would be the effect on the paper
in our currency If we should substitute the
silver standard for the existing irold stand,
ard? A. The 1475,000,000 of paper, today
worth lOOcenta to the dollar on the existing
gold standard, would at once decline to CO
vents In the dollar on the silver standard,
based on the price of silver today, the Im
mediate effect being to reduce the value of
the paper now In the currency to 3237,000,.
009. . Q. By abandoning the existing gold
standard for tho silver standard, what
then would be tho first net result? A. Tho
lots to the country of $1,154,000,000, every
dollar of which is now worth 100
cents by reason of tho existing gold
standard. Q. What do you deduce
. from this? A, That we need all tho
money we have and that we want every
dollar to be worth v100 cents. Q. How can
ivs keep all the money we have and keep
every dellar worth 100 cents? A. Uy pre.
serving the existing gold standard.
. lust one thing heeds to be added to
this discussion. Under present condi
tions, because of', sliver's, declining
value, It is costing us a (food deal of
money' to keep our sliver and our 'gold at
a, parity. But when we have. Inter
national bimetallism this cost' will' no
longer be feltt Its burden will be lifted,
to the ebon ces of an early. Interna
tlonal agreement, we recently quoted
Senator Hoar, a Republican, to the effect
that they were good, and we now Quote
ex-Secretary Whitney, a "gold bug"
Democrat Says he: "There has never
been a time when the prospects of in
ternational action favorable to the joint
standard were at all as promising as
the present moment. From the dis
cussion of the last twenty years It has
come to pass that among the persons in
Europe who are trained, recognized
scientists upon monetary and econo
mic questions, scarcely one is not at the
present moment advocating the desira
bility of the Joint standard, as the real
solution of the monetary diltk-uiliua
the world. They are agreed upon the
desirability of It. and that it Is entirely
practicable. If established nnd main

commercial nations. At the fienei.t
moment (lormany. France. Italy, Aus

Stales wish to co-operate for the estab
lishment and maintenance' of the Juiut l
standard by International agreement
Great Ur'.taln has recently, within
three months. In fact, made- a most im
portant concession, tine has said: "We
will do fur you as much as you can do
for yourselves. Wo will make this great
contribution to a bimetallic system. Wo
will reopen the Indian mints. We will
engage that they shall be kept open, and
we shall therefore provide for n free
coinage of silver within the limits of the
British Emjlre for a population greater
in number than the population of Ger
many, France and America put to
We have, therefore, only to restore
protection, re-induce public confidence
and await, developments on that line;
the silver problem will solve Itself.
We confess we don't see how Como
dore Slngerly is going to be able to for
give ex-Secretary Whitney for saying
International bimetallism is near when
Brother Slngerly's tstlmable newspajwr
lias been denouncing it day after day as
a fatuous dream.
. The Future of Mr. Piatt.
A question which is causing a good
deal of worrlment Just now among tho
Republicans of New York state is
whether It would be expedient at this
time to attempt to deliver the party in
tltat commonwealth from the unsatis
factory sway of the Hon. Thomas Col
lier Piatt. Under ordinary circum
stances it is conceded that a factional
fight during a presidential ticket would
be very likely to embarrass the national
nominees; and the retainers of Mr. Piatt
are loud in their declarations that if the
"antls" don't keep quiet "somebody"
(dimbtlecs meaning McKlnley) "will get
On the other hand, the desire among
Empire state Republicans for a rid
dance from the dictatorial ways of Mr.
Piatt Is very general and very earnest
at this particular time. Governor Mor
ton feels that he has been buncoed,
Warner Miller Is brandishing a good
sized tomahawk, Chauncey Depew Is as
near the point of a nevolt as he has ever
been In his life. And worse than all
this, there Is a widespread belief among
the rank and file that by his recent
abuse of Major McKlnley, Mr. Piatt
made It impossible for himself, even
though as a mutter of expediency he
should now desire to turn In earnestly
for the presidential ticket, to render
trustworthy or effective service in the
A great attempt Is being made by the
Piatt papers to magnify the Tioga lead
er's service In behalf of honest money.
Mr. Piatt Is represented as having lit
erally forced Mark Hanna to abandon
his Intended tlnnnclnt straddle und ac
cept, under Mr. Piatt's compulsion, the
gold standard with the word "gold"
underscored. Unfortunately for this
attempted let-down, Mr. Kohlsaat dis
tinctly staff s that he had himself writ
ten the plunk in question fend secured
Major McKinley's approval of it fully
forty-eight hour3 before Mr. Piatt
reached St. Louis, and that Its adoption
with the full approval of McKinley's
friends was never for a moment in
We have an opinion that the best
thing to do In a situation like the fore
going Is to adopt herolo measures and
take chances on the result. But It Is
a question for New Yorkers themselves
to answer. They hold Piatt's destiny
In their keeping.
The Nicholson law, the validity of
which has Just been upheld by the Su
preme court of Indiana, couples with a
local option clause the provisions that
licensed saloons must not be connected
with any other business; that bltllard
tables shall not he In the same room
with the bar; that blinds and screens
Bhall not conceal saloon patrons from
public scrutiny; that others than mem
bers of the saloon-keeper's family shall
not enter the saloon on days when the
sale of intoxicants Is Interdicted. The
law has been In force nearly a year, and
within that time the number of saloons
throughout Indiana has decreased 12
per cent, while the general average of
the public morals Is said to have Im
proved. In the last five years, during the first
six months of each year, when the
movement of specie Is at Its maximum,
the total net amount of our gold ex
ports has approximated $245,000,000. In
other words we have in live years lost
more than one-third of our entire avail
able stock of free gold. Very evidently,
the sooner the gold balance Is turned in
our' favor the better. It wilt take a
Kepubllcan administration to turn It
Comodore Slngerly wants tire Demo
crats to declare at Chicago for the sln

tion of our currency by the retirement
and cancelation of the greenbacks and
treasury notes; the repeal of the tax on
tote and national bank with the au-
tborisatioa of a state banking system
under federal supervision; and a tariff
for revenue only. We should say that
such a declaration would be eminently
satisfactory to Republicans.
Aceordlng to the,esteemed Philadel
phia Record, the proposition to advance
anthracite coal prices In July "Is not

than ability to enforce an extortion."

It Is to be regretted that the plan for
reapportioning the representation in
Republican national conventions should
have failed to carry at St. Louis. The
proponed change was fair and desirable.
It savored of cowardice not to make It.
The latest foreign street railway mo
tor uses compressed hot water and Is

Scranton, the most powerful Traction
motor, at least In the vicinity of coun
cils, Is said to be the legal tender.
Afterwhlle maybe It will dawn on
the Republican managers that the pro
per place for national conventions and,
as the situation now stands, the only
proper place Is Chicago.
Our Democratic friends might avoid
tho silver Issue by nominating "Para
mount" Blount at Chicago on the plat
form: "Down with the American flag."
We still thluk that the platform would
have been quite as effective if it had
consisted simply of the words "Sound
money and the chance to earn it."
From the Philadelphia Uucord.
It is generally true that the citlsens or
one country know practically but little
of another country. Each country has an
atmosphere, politically, financially and
morally, of Its own, as well as traditions,
habits of life and a point of view which
must be learned and studied, if they ever
can be learned and studied, without ac
tually breathing the one or becoming per.
serially cognizant of the other. Detached,
naked facts are not to-be misleading.
They need to be considered in relation to
other facts and circumstances before their
just weight and real significance can be
II II II
A writer in the Nineteenth Century for
June affords an Illustration of the truth
of these remarks. In an article on "Amer
ica as a Power" he endeavors to show how
weak wa should be as a belligerent. We
have no merchant marine! But In case of
a war a merchant marine becomes the
first and most vulnerable point of at.
tack. In our latest war with England that
power was seriously crippled by the rapid
and surprising capture of her vessels.
Our privateers haunted every sea, and
produced veritable panics in the seats of
British commerce. During the continu
ance or this short war 2,500 vessels all
told were captured from the British. It
was the wholesale destruction of their
shipping that led the commercial later
ests or Great Britain to demand peace,
and brought the war to a speedy close.
No doubt a mercantile marine Is In peace
a source of national wealth, and an in.
terest that should be fostered; but In war
It becomes a prey to a bold and enterpris
ing enemy. Instead of being an element of
helllirernt strensth. it Is an element of bel-
llgerent weakness. The navy. Instead of
being Tree to concentrate against the hos
tile navy and the vulnerable points along
tho hostile coasts. Is necessarily divided
and detached to convoy merchantmen and
guard the pathways of uommerco.
II H II
But our navy is Instgnlflcantl As con
trusted with the British navy, yes; and In
the war of 1812 It was still more Inslgnlf.
leunt. At that time Great Britain has a
thousand ships of war. and ours were so
few that It was supposed they would seek
security by remaining in port. Our coasts
were to be blockaded and kept closed by
the overwhelming naval superiority of the
enemy; and yet our privateers scorned the
blockade, and, quitting our own coasts,
swarmed. In the Irish sea and the English
channel. And our ships of war were vie.
toilous In three-fourths of the naval en.
gagements that were fought. Michael
Scott, the author of "Tom Cringle's Log,"
who served In the war, and who cordially
hated the Americans, writes thus as a
result of his experience: "In the field or
grappling in mortal combat on the blood-
slippery quarterdeck of an enemy a ves.
set n British soldier or tailor Is the bravest
of the brave. No soldier or sailor of any
other country, saving and excepting those
damned Yankees, can stand against them,"
Tho United States have never been so
strong at sea os now; and though their
ships are camparatlvely few In number,
yet In rase of war (which heaven fora
fend!) we might confidently rely upon
the hope that hey woull give as good an
aecount of themselves as did their prede
cessors In 1812. Moreover, pays the writer
In the Nineteenth -Century, we have an
army of. unemployed, which In ease of War
would be immensely increased, tne ex
perience of the country during our lot
civil war was that tne ranks or tne un
employed wero rapidly depleted to till tho
ranks of the regiments going to the front.
Not only our own unemployed but the Un
employed of our northern neighbor, the
Dominion of Canada, came forward to
enlist for the war. Instead of war Increas.
Ing the number of the unemployed, It em
ploys them, and Immensely stimulates the
demand for labor. Moreover, too, says
this writer, we have an Immense alien
population which affects our national
solidity. We have not found this to be
the rase. The aermttns, Scandinavians
and Irish who have Immigrated to our
shores are attracted to our country and
Its institutions; and In the second genera
tion they become assimilated With the na
tive population and pnssossed of Its nsptra
tlons and hopes, and would march with
the same alacrity to tho defense of the
common flag. Of other nationalities we
have hot probably a greater proportion
than have sought the shores of Great
Britain; and wa havo no reason to tfbubt
that In days of war, or days of disaster,
they would bo true to the country that
has sheltered and protected them.
II II II
Tlhs writer refers, among other things,
to our unsound currency, and to our de
pendence upon British markets, as' show
ing "the weakness of America as a bel.
llgerent." An unsound currency, whor.
ever it exists, Is a misfortune and a thing
to be remedied. It leaves untouched, how
ever, the sources of national wealth; and
when Its impediments and Inconveniences
are. gotten rid of the rock of the nation's
resources remains unimpaired, 'questions
of currency are always serious, but their
effects are not 'Vital, and when settled on
a safe basis prosperity Is apt to revive
with singular rapidity. As to eur depend

said that Great Britain is equally depend,
ent upon us for the products teat supply
It. In case of war no doubt she couid. In
part, get them from other countries; but
the vessels carrying them would at aU
times be liable to capture, which would
render the supply precarious. For eur
part, war would create aa immense de
mand for agricultural products oi r-u
kinds, to supply the army and navy: and
the causes that lost u our market would
create another to take Its place.
