when the balance of merchandise exports
and imports is heavily in favor of this
Gold is imported under three different
conditions. First when a monetary strin
gency raises the rate for "money. The
sudden destruction of credit raises a de
mand for gold. This is the reason gold is
always imported by any country immedi
atsly after a panic. The import of gold by
the BankofEngtend from the Bank of
France after the Baring panic was of thie
character and the imports now are due to
This is practically indicated by the fact
that these imports are on collateral jnst as
was the transfer of gold from Paris to Lon
don three YEARS ago. With merchandise
exports falling and exports rising gold is,
however, likely before long to be import
ed in regular exchange transactions. In
addition, when Congress suspends silver
purchases, the third cause for gold imports
— in exchange for the exports for shares
and bonds — is likely to set in.
Withoat venturing on any predictions,
there is therefore a strong probability that
gold imports will continue for some time
and extend to larger proportions than for
several years. — Philadelphia Press.
A MERE suggestion of a tariff for revenue
only policy frightens the business world in
to paralysis. The people who stubbornly
cling to a theory which reads well in print,
in spite of all the severe lesons of experi
ence, would rather suffer the worst priva
tions than admit that their judgement was
at fault. It is a pecularity of this thing
obstinacy, that it is ever the most positive
when most in wrong. As was wittily re
marked by somebody long ago, a stubborn
man does not realy hold any opinions —THA
opinions hold him.
Comments on the Message.
(Pittsburg Commercial Gazette.)
In the main President Cleveland's mes
sage to Congress is clear, sound and praise
worthy. He tells the story of financial
trouble in a simple, straightforward man
ner, and Bis recommendation for the im
mediate unconditional repeal ot the pur
chase clause of the Sherman act will meet
the approval of the best people, and a ma
jority of all the people, North, East, South
The President clearly rocognizes the
disturbance incident to uncertainty regard -
ing the tariff, referring to "evils apprehend
ed," and also in the announcement of his
abandonment of the intention to call a
special session in September to consider
the tariff and substituting an earlier ses
sion to act on the Bilver law. lie is un
compromising—unwisely so — in his declar
ation for tariff revision in the future.
That is the weak point in an otherwise
strong message, even though the tariff re
vision is relegated specifically to the in
definite future. The threatening tariff
changes are at the bottom of tho present
troubles, and if they are insisted upon in
conformity with the declarations of the
Democratic platform only temporary and
partial relief will come from the repeal of
the Sherman law. This law, as the presi
dent says, is "one of the evils" in the sit
uation. The attitude of his party and him
self toward the tariff is another and great
The message is in its entirety a demon
stration of the well known fact that the
threat of silver payments through the con
tinuance of silver purchases was the origin
of the distrust that has disturbed credit
throughout the length and breadth of tho
land. To a certain extent it is threshing
old straw; but the point is so pivotal of the
entire situation and constitutes so control
ling a situation in onr coming legislation
that it was not well that it should be made
in a state paper, but it was absolutely es
sential. The logic of tho message showing
first, the necessary construction of the act:
second, its effect on the gold payments;
third, its result in arousing distrust for the
future, and last, the popular interest in
putting tho monetary question on a settled
and firm foundation, is simple, clear and
unanswerable. It brings the issue up to
the place where the first step can bo made,
in a shape from which there can bo no sin
cere or reasonable dissent.
As was expected, Mr. Cleveland's mess
age deals almost, exclusively with the silver
question. It is only just to say that he
presents the situation as it exists, and dis
cusses it clearly and forcibly. He is fairer
too, than his party and its press, for, while
placing tbe responsibility for tho present
difficulties upon tbe operations of the Sher
man act, he admits that "it may be con
sidered a truce aftor a long struggle be
tween the advocates of free silver coinage
and those intending to be more conserva
tive." In this latter position ho accords
with the Republican party, aud contradicts
Tho prompt repeal of the purchasing
clause of the Sherman act is urgently rec
ommended, together with other legislative
action that "may put beyond all doubt or
mistake the intention and ability of the
Government to fulfill its pecuniary obliga
tions in money universally recognized by
all civilized countries," It is to be regret
ted that immediately after tbe last word in
the sentence quoted aboye, Mr. Cleveland
stops short and signs his name. The rec
ommendations embodied therein will be
heartily endorsed by all who lavor and ad
here to a sound financial policy, but they
will wish that Mr. Cleveland had indicated
his views, and tho views of his party, as to
what legislation w ill bring about so desir
able and necessary u result, i'or, after the
repeal of tho Sherman act pnrchaxing
clause, what ? If Mr. Cleveland does not
know or knows and does r.ot tell, what

cordant representatives of his party to

Both houses of Congress reassembled at
noon Tuesday, and after the usual prelim
inaries the President s message was pre
sented and read as follows:
The existence of an alarming and extra
ordinary business situation involving the
welfare and prosperty of all our people has j
constrained mo to call together in extra
session the people's representatives in Con
gress, to the end that through a .wise and
patriotic exercise of the legislative duty
with which they solely are charged present
evils may be mitigated and dangers threat
ening the future may be averted.
Our unfortunate financial plight is not
the result of untoward events nor of condi
tions related to our natural resources, nor
is.it any of the afflictions which
frequently check national growth and pros
perity. With plenteous crops,with abun
dAnt promise of remunerative production
to safe investment and with satisfactory
assurance to business enterprise, suddealy
financial distrust and fear have sprang up
on every side. Numerous money institu
tions have suspended because abundant as
sets were not immediately available to
meet the demands of frightened depositors.
Surviving corporations and individuals are
content to keep in hand tho money they
are usual anxious to loan and those engag
ed in legitmate business are surprised to
find that the securities they offer for loans,
though heretofore satisfactory, are no long,
er accepted. Yalues supposed to be fixed
are fast becoming conjectural and losses
and failures have invaded every branch of
business. I believe these things are prin
cipally chargeable to congressional legisla
tion touching the purchase and coinage of
silver by the general government.
The legislation is embodied in a statute
passed on the 14th day of Jnly, 1890, which
was tho culmination of much agitation on
the subject involved, and which may be
considered a truce after a long struggle be
tween the advocates of free silver coinage
and those intending to bo more conserva
Undoubtedly monthly purchases by the
Government 4,500,000 ounces of silver en
forced under the statute were regarded by
those interested in silver production as a
certain gaaranty of its increase in price.
The result, however, has been ontirely dif
ferent, far immediately following a spas
modic and slight rise the price of silver be
gan to fall after tho passage of tho act and
has since reached the lowest point eyer
known. The disappointing result has led
to renewed aud persistent effort in the di
rection of free silver coinage.
Meanwhile not only tho evil effects of
tho operation of the present law constantly
accumulating, but the ro*ult to which its
execution must inevitable lead is becoming
palpable to all who give least heed to fi
This law providos that in payment for
tho 4,500,000 ounces of silver bullion which
the secretary ot the treasury is command
ed to purchase monthly, there shall be is
sued treasury notes redeemable on demand
in gold or silver coin, at tho discretion of
the secretary of the treasury, and that said
notes may not be reissued. It is, however,
declared in the act to be "the established
policy of tho United States to maintain the
two metals on a parity with each other
upon the present legal ratio or such ratio
as may be provided by law."
This declaration so controls tho action
of the secretary of tne treasury as to pre
vent his exercising this discretion nomi
nally vested in him, if by such actiou the
parity between gold and silver may be dis
rurbed. Manifestly a refusal by the eecre
to pay tho treasury notes in gold, if de
manded, would necessarily result in their
discredit and depreciation as obligations
payable only in silver, and would destroy
the parity between the two metals by es
tablishing a discrimination in favor of
Up to the 15th day of July, 1893, theso
notes had been issued on payment of silver
bullion purchases to the amout ol $147-
000,000. While all but a very small quan
tity of this bullion remains uncoiued and
without usefulness in the treasury, many
of the notes given "in its purchases havo
been paid in gold. This illustrated by the
statement that between May Ist, 1892, and
July 15, 1893, the notes of this kind issued
in payment for silver bullion amounted to
a little more than $54,000,000 and that dur
ing the same period $49,000,000 were piid
to the treasury in gold for the redemption
of snch notes.
The policy necessarily adopted ofjpaying
the notes in gold has not spared the gold
reserve $100,000,000 long ago set aside by
the government for the redemptian of oth
er notes, for this fund has already been
subjected to the payment of now obliga
tions amounting to about $150,000,000 on
account of silver purchases and has as a
consequence for the first time since its
croation been encroached upon. We havo
thus made the depletion of our gold easy
and have tempted other and more appre
ciative nations to add it to their stock.
That the opportunity we ha\ fered his
not been neglected, is shown by the large
amounts of gold which have been recently
drawn lrom our treasury and exported to
increase financial strength of foreign na
tions. The excess of exports of gold over
its imports for the year ending June 30,
2893, amounted to more than $87,500,000.
Between the Ist day of July, 1890, and
15th day of July, 1893, the gold coin and
and bullion in our treasury decreased
more than $132,000,000, while during the
samo period the silver coin and bullion in
the treasury increased more than $247,000,-
000. Unless government bonds aro to bo
constantly issued and sold to replenish out
exhausted gold, ouly to be again exhaust
ed, it is apparant that the operation of the
silver purchase law now in lorcc leads in
the direction of the entire substitution of
silver for the gold in the government treas
ury aud that this must be followed by pay
ment of all government obligations in de
At this stage gold and silver must part
company, and the government must fail iu
its established pnlicy to maintain the two
metals on a parity with each other. Given
over to tho exclusive use of a currency
greatly depreciated, according to standard
of the commercial world, wc could no
longe.r claim a place among the nations of
tho first class, nor could our government
claim a performance of its obligation, so
far as such an obligation has been imposed
upou it, to provide for tbe use of the poo
pie tho best and safest money. If, as many
of its friends claim, silver ought to occupy
a larger place in our currency and tho gen
eral currency of tho world through general
international co-operation and agreement,
it is is obvious that tbe United States
will not be in a position to gain a hearing
in favor of such an arrangement so long as
we are willing to continue our attempt to
accomplish the ri salt tingle banded. The
knnwledgo in buoiness circles among our
own peoplo that onr government cannot
make its fiat equivalent to intrinsic value,
nor keep inferior money on a parity with
superior money bv it# o«u independent ef
forts, has resulted in such a lack of confi
dence at home in the stability of cdrrency
value that capital refu-es it* aid to new
enterprises while millions are actually
withdrawn from the channels of trade and
commerce to become idle and unproduc
tive in the hands of timid owners. For
eign investors equally alert, not only de
clino-to purchase American securities bnt
make haste to sacrifice those which they
already have. It does not meet the situa
tion to say that apprehension in regard to
the future of our linances is groundless and
that there is no reason ior lack of confi
dence in the purpose or power of the gov
ernment in the premises. The very exis
tence of this apprehension and lack of con
fidence, however caused, is a menace
which ought not for a moment to< be dis
regarded. Possibly if the undertaking we
have in hand were the maintenance of a
specific known quantity of silver at a par
ity with gold. our ability to do so might be
estimated and ganged, and perhaps in
view of onr unparalled growth and res
ources, might bo favorably passed upon.
But when onr avowed endeavor is to main
tain such parity in regard to an amount of
silver increasing at the rate of fifty mil
lions of dollars year, with no fixed termi
nation to such increa e, it can hardly be
*aid that, a problem is presented whose sol
ution is free from doubt.
The people of the United States are en
titled to a sound and stable currency and
to money recognized as such on every ex
change and in every market of the world.
Their government has no right to injure
them by financial experiments opposed to
the policy and practice of other civilized
States, nor is it justified in permitting an
exaggerated and unreasonable reliance on
our national strength and abilit3* to jeop
ardize the soundness of the peoples xnon
" This matter rises above the plane of par
ty politics. It vitally concerns every bus
iness and calling and enters every honse
• hold in the land. There is one important
i aspect ot the subject which especially
should never be overlooked. At times
like the present, when the evils of unsound
finance threaten us, the speculator m *y
anticipate a harvest gathered from the
the capitalist may
protect him tell by Hoarding (ir uiaj vnm
lind profit in the fluctuations of valuer,
bat the wege earner—the first to be injur
ed by a depreciated currency and the last
to see the benefit of its correction—is prac
tically defenseless He relies for work
upon the venturer of confidant and con
tented capital. This failing him his condi
tion is without alleviation lor he can neith
er prev on the misfortunes of others, nor
hoard his labor. One of our greatest
statesmen our country has known, speak
ing more than fifty years ago when a de
ranceinent of the currency had caused
commercial distress, said: "The very man
ef all others who has the deepest interest
in a sound currency and who suffers most
by mischeivious legislation in money
ters is tie man who earns his daily bread
by his daily|toil."
These words are as pertinent now aj on
the day they were uttered, and ought to
impressively remind us that a failure in
the discharge of our duty at this time must
especiallv injure our countrymen who labor
at.d who, "because oftheir number and condi
tion, are entitled to the most watchful care
of their government.
It is of utmost importance that such re
lief as Congress can afTord in the existing
situation be afforded at once. The maxim,
"He gives twice who gives quickly, is di
rectly applicable. It may be true that the
embarrassments from which business of
the country is suffering arise as much from
evils apprehended as from those actually
existing. We may hope too, that calm
counsels will prevail and that neither the
capitalists nor the wage earners will give
way to unreasoning panic and sacrifice
their property or their interests under tho
influence of exaggerated fears. Neverthe
less, every day's delay in removing one of
tho plain and principle causes of the pres
ent state of things enlarges tho mischief
already done and increases the responsibil
ity of the government for its existence.
Whatever elso the people have a right to
expect from Congress, they may certainly
demand that legislation condemned by the
three yearn disastrous experience shall be
removed from the statute books an soon as
their representatives can legitimately deal
with it. It was my purpose to summon
Conpres* in special-e?sion eti.y in the com
ing September that we might enter prompt
ly upon the work of tariff reform, which
tho truo interests of the country clearly de
mand, which so large a majority ol the
people as shown by their suffrages desire
and expect, and to the accomplishment of
which every effort of the present adminis
tration is pledged. But while tariff reform
has lost nothing of its immediate and per
manent importance, and must in the near
future engage the attention of Congress, it
ha.s seemed to me that the financial condi
tion of the country should at once and be
fore all other subjects, bo considered by
your honorable body.
I earnestly recommend the prompt re
peal of the provisions of the act passed
July 14, 1890, authorizing the purchase of
silver bullion and that other legislative ac
tion may put beyond all doubt or mistake
the intention and the ability of the govern
ment to fulfill its pecuniary obligations in
money universally recognized bv all civi
lized countries. GROVER CLEVELAND.
Aftor the reading of the message bills
were introduced in both houses to repeal
the section of the Sherman law referred to,
and also one in the Senate favoring free
coinage, which brought about an acrimo
nious debate; and both houses adjourned
till next day.
The Water We are Compelled to Drink.
Through your paper I wish to call the
attention of our Town Council, as well as
our Health Committee,to what every think
ing citizen considers ot vastly more impor
tance than shoveling up piles of dirt on
our Streets and. as a rule being left
there unless private individuals see lit to
remove them at their own exponse.
The water the people of Butler are com
pelled to drink is really unlit for animals
to drink, to say nothing about the people.
Must this state of things continue; will
some member of our Town Council please
explain to the people and citizens of But
ler why the company that furnishes water
to the borough is not compelled to furnish
us with pure, filtered water? The rate we
are compelled to pay is, to say the least,
an outrageous price; but this I presume we
must submit to. But can this Water Co.
compel us to drink the impure, muddy and
foul smelling water that they are furnish
ing to us? 1 think that if the proper ones
who have been elected by the people to
look after what would be the interest and
health of the citizens of the borough would
take the matter in hands and act prompt
ly, this Water Co. wonld be compelled to
con.-truct and maintain a proper filter,
large enough to filter every gallon of wa
ter furnished the borough, and this ought
to bo done at once, or at least proceedings
commenced that will compel the Water
Co to give us pure, filtered water without
del ly. As it now is the odor arising from
tlm water is, to nay the least, disgusting;
while the taste is anything but pleasant,
and the use of it must result in much sick
l.eas 1 have been informed that the at
tention of members of our Council has
been called to this matter several times,
but they seem indifl'ereut to any demands
made as against the Water Co.
Will some member of our Council please
explain to the citizens of Butler why we
aro compelled to drink and use this muddy
and foul smelling water furnished us by
the Water Co. It is an outrage, and there
should bo a way to have this imposition on
the people stopped, and without any de
lay or red tape about it. The people have
been imposed on long enough by this
Water Co. What wo want is pure filtered
water and for this we aro willing to submit
to rates that are reasonable. There is not
another town in the State that is compell
ed to ,-übmit to the rates we do hero in

ter as wo aro furnished by our Water Co.

fighting men. armed with rifles, axes and

was far more powerful than Mataafa s, hay

When the attack came, MataalVs forces
being short of ammunition retreated. Ma
taafa, seeing no hope of success, and hav

decapitated, ordered 19 boats to lie off Mu
lund. Malietoa's residence and stronghold,
for the purpose of drawing Malietoa s at
tention, while in the meantime, darkness
setting m, he lowered his ensign, cut down
his flagpole and set fire to Male. This
town was tormerly the King's residence
and was beautifully laid ont in Samoan
style. The houses were well built, but
rather than have the town fall_ into the
King's hands, Mataafa preferred to see it
go up in smoke. Mataafa's strategy with
the boats being successful in keeping the
enemy off, he departed with his followers
for the island of Savai, another of tho Sa
moan group. That afternoon the conquer
ors, Malietoa's warriors, returned to Apia
with the spoils of victory. These spoils
consisted of the bleoding heads of human
beings. Each man who had the luck to

They walked up the street yelling like
fiends, with eyes starting from their sock
ets with excitement and throwing the sev
ered heads about like baseballs, blood drip
ping all over the bearers. Many heads
• were brought in this manner, and after be
ing exhibited about the town were presen
ted to Malsetoa as tropies of war. The
King graciously recoived them, and they
were then thrown on a pile on tho ground.
Mataafa lost 16 killed and 17 wounded.
Malietoa's loss was 4 killed and 12 wound
ed. Malietoa's excited fiends marched to
and fro through the town, clearing every
body out of the way. The white people
took reiuge on the verandas of houses,
while the warriors held the streets. The
whites wore at the mercy of the excited
natives, who were crazed with victory and
blood, and if there had been any clash
would probably have been massacred. Ma
taafa was not received cordially by the
tribesmen of Savai, and ho accordingly
proceeded to Manono, where he erected
fortifications and made preparations for a
final stand, but the three powers, (Eng
land, Germany and America,) interfered,
and Mataafa and his chiefs, were forced to
