A National Currency Only.
The itch to revive State bank currency
has evidently taken a deep hold, and those
nnder its influence are industrious in
■pTeading it. The conference at Washing
ton shows that it has gained foothold in
high places and will probably be the lead
ing i*sue before the country when silver
purchase repeal is out of the way.
Senator Quay is confident that a State
bank currency would be safe in Pennsyl
vania. Others are certain it would be per
fectly safe in Maasachusetts. New York,
Ohio and other States whose legislators
are wise enough to appreciate that the In
terests of the people are best served by a
sound and honest currency. But the peo
ple of Pennsylvania, XewlYork, Ohio.
Massachusetts do business not only in their
own States but in West Virginia, Kansas,
Tennessee and Texas. They sell goods
there; they are interested in railroads lo
cated there; they have other investments
there, and tbey must accept in payment of
their claims the current money of the peo
ple they do business with. The business of
this country is not bounded by State lines
and it needs for iU prosperity a currency
that does not change in value at State
lines. The currency should be uniform and
pass without question or discount over the
country. That State banks cannot provide
such currency is the fatal objection to their
assuming again this function.
It is possible that three-fourths of the
States of the Union would provide a safe
bank currency, but what is needed is a
guaranty that the other fotrth will do
equally well. It will not no to say, as
same do, that the matter will regulate it
self, because a State that is negligent and
allows the issue of unsound currency would
soon suffer by the rejection of its bank
notes and the impairment of its credit. So
it would, but those who do business with it
would suffer also. This fear of injuring the
State's credit did not hinder the multiplica
tion of wild-cat banks forty years ago. It
has not prevented a scaling down and par
tial repudiation of States' indebtedoees in
the present generation. States are not al
ways wisely guided. Some of them seem
always ready to pursue a present advantage
regardless of the future. That such States
will not permit wild-cat banking and the
issue of unsafe currency, if unrestricted, is
a danger—a grave, immediate and inevit
able danger—which attends the carrying
out of the Democratic platform demands
for the repeal ol the national tax on Stale
bank currency.
This danger Is clearly recognized by
some of those who, nevertheless, are eager
for a State bank currency, and thus have
busied themselves to find a device to meet
it. In the report of the conference held in
Washington on Saturday at the Treasury
building, it is suggested that the Govern
ment retain a quasi control over the new
currency, even print the notes and con
tinue the United State* examination. The
beneficiaries are to be State banks, and
they will be allowed to take currency on
the security of State, municipal and other
bonds which meet the approval of the
Government authorities, the United States
to stand good for the redemption of the cur
rency in gold.
We do not see why this should be called
a State bank currency, since the States
have nothing to do with it but charter the
banks. If a matured proposal for a State
bank currency comes from the Treasury
Department we are certain it will take a
different form than this. If it is agreod
that it is safe to issue a bank currency on a
security inferior to national bonds there is
no reason why the banks taking and issu
ing this currency should not be national
banks, except the old Democratic hostility
to things national and preference for the
adjective State. If the National Govern
ment is to provide the new bills and indorse
them, we see no reason why it should turn
them over to State institutions, when it al
ready has a splendid system of its own
ready to take them and put them into in
slant circulation.
The money of the Constitution is gold
and silver, and that is put securely and
wholly into the hands of the National
Government. Experience has shown that
a bank currency is a convenient and valu
able ally of the Government's coined cur
rency, and the experiences of thirty year*
contrasted with many painful decades be
fore »how that it is uniformly safe and
efficient when under national control and
fluctuating and uncertain when left to the
States. We want no Rhode Island or
Oregon currency in this country, but a
national currency, whether gold, silver or
paper, of equal value in Maine and in Tex
as, having behind it the mintage or in
dorsement of the t'nited States of Amer

by it in the future. There is practically
no more land to be added to the area .if

products has reached its limit in the Unit
ed States, and mast now remain stationary,
while the demand will go on increasing
every year. This implies* a gradual im
provement in prices, ami a steady appreci
ation of the valne of farming lands.

bridge near Springfield, Mass., last Thors

and several so badly injnred that they
have since died.
Some of the Causes.
In his late speech in the Senate Cham
l.r- of the United States, Senator Sherman
sjtwka as follows:
He said that the immediate question
before the Senate was whether or not the
United State* would suspend the purchase
of silver bullion under the act of July.lS9o.
It was to decide that question that the
President had called Congress together in
special session. If that were the only
reason for the extraordinary session it
would seem to him insufficient. The mere
addition of 18,000,000 ounces of silver to
♦he mass of silver in the Treasury and the
addition of 140,000,000 Treasury notes to
the thousand millions outstanding would
hardly justify the call. The call was justi
fied, however, by the existing financial
stringency, growing out of the fear that
the United States would open its *rints to
the free coinage of silver. This was the
real issue. The gravity of it could not be
stated in words. If the single standard of
gold were had, without the aid of the sil
ver, the relations between capital and la
bor would be disturbed, the industries of
the country crippled, and the valae of sil
ver still further reduced. On the other
hand, if the purchase of 54,000,000 ounces
of silver per year were continued the
United States would be eventually brought
to a single standard of silver."
On one thing Congress and the country
agreed. That was that these two extreme
conditions should be avoided, and that
both gold and silver should be continued
in use as money, as measures of value
Monometallism, pure and simple, had
never gained a foothold in the United
Stateo. The free coinage of silver meant a
single stanard of silver. It meant a reduc
tion of the wages of labor —not in the num
ber of dollars, but in the quantity of bread
and meat and other necessaries of life that
It would purchase. It the repudiation
of a portion of all debts, public and and
private. It meant a bounty to ail the
banks and savings institutions and trust
companies. The problem which Senators
had to solve was how to procure the
largest use of gold and silver without de
monetizing either.
Mr. Sherman went on to give a history
of the circumstances which led up to the
passage of the act of July 1890. It was a
far better law, he said, than the bill whicft
the House had tnen passed, or the bill
which the Sen ate had passed. Senators
who criticized it ought to remember that
it was subßt itute for a bill of the House
and for a bill of the Senate, either of
which would have been more dangerous in
its results than the law of 1890 was. The
President of the United States was not jus
tified in ascribing to that law the present
financial stringency. If the Preident had
taken a broader view of the cause of the
stringency it would have been easy for
him to explain it. There wa 8 among the
nations of the world one great creditor na
tion which held American bonds and se
curities in various forms to the amount of
thouaands of millions. It was a country
which had not been invaded by a foreign
foe for 500 years. Its insular position
was it* safety. It was a nation of intelli
gent people, which commanded the com
merce of the world and whose flag floated
on ever 7 sea. Americans should not be
ashamed of that people; should not hate
or dislike them, because Americans were
their children and possessed very much of
the qualities of the parent stock. England
was the great creditor; but England in its
vast enterprises, had become involved in
difficulties since the passage of the act
of 1890. It had investments amounting to
hundreds of millions in the Argentine Con
federation. By some sudden collapse in
those investments the great banking house
of the Barings was toppling to iU fall,
when the bank of England and the other
banking houses came to its rescue and ob
tained money from France and other coun
tries of Europe. The immediate result of
that was that the American securities were
sent home for sale; and their proceeds in
gold were shipped back to pay the losses of
Great Brittain in the Argentine Confeder
ation. The United State* was a great and
rich aßd powerful country; but it was a
new country Its wealth was not in gold
and silver, not even in bonds and mort
gagee to be sold abroad. Its "wealth was
in its mines, its farms, its workships its
railroads. These were its sources of wealth,
but these were also its danger, because
they could not be developed without going
into debt; and that debt might he demand
ed any lime, and would have to be paid in
gold or silver or something else.
Following the Argentine trouble the fail
ure* of the Australian banks came; and the
same process of sending American securi
ties for sale went on, with the same result.
Gold wa* withdrawn from the United
States. Other causes had combined to pro
duce the existing trouble. At the time that
those experiences were going on, Austria,
Hungary, Itoumania and several other
countries In Europe were changing from a
paper and silver standard to a gold stand
ard. Tbey had made demand* for gold
through Englisn bankers; and the later had
bad to sell American securities in order
to get the gold.
There has been still another trouble. For
the first time in many years the balance of
trade had been turned against the United
States last year. Hitherto the balance had
been in favor of the United States to the
amount of $50,000,000, $100,000,000 and
sometimes $200,000,000. The last fimtal
year the balance of trade was against the
United States to the ainountof $18,735,000.
Whether it would be so next year no one
could tell. He believed that with the
crops now ripening the balance of trade
would probably be in favor of the ('nitcd
States this year; and bo believed that the
forced economy which always followed a
panic would be, of itself, a protection
against annsual ai.d unncessary imports
So he hoped that next year thnr*> would be
no difficulty in the matter of tlance of
It seemed to him that the President of
the United States, with his broad concep
tion of public affairs, should hare stated
that the existing depression did not arise
from the purchase of 4,500,000 ounces of
silver bullion per month; bat that it hal
come from causea as apparent as the sky,
as broad as the firmanent, as open to the
eye of every man as the sun or the moon
The eroneous idea had been created in the
public mind that that small measure (the
act of IHM) had produced results with
which it had DO connection.
lint nevertheless, the situation was on
the country, and Congress had got to deal
with that situation, not with the act of
iH'JO. Something had been said by the
Senator from Colorado (Mr. Teller) about
the loss on the bullion purchased under
the act of IHUO. The average prico paid
for it was 74$ cents per ounce and the loss,
calculated on the value of tilver to day,
was 1f22,345,35<i. It would bo remembered
that Treasury notes had been issued for
the 150,000,000 ounces of silver purchased
to the amount of its cost; that no interest
was paid on these notes, and that they
had been used by the people as current
"Snppose," said Mr. Sherman, "thatthis
provision had not been made in 1890.
Suppose that we had been compelled to
face the storms whieh followed 181H)—the
buses by investments in the Argentine
Republic, the failure of Australian banks,
and these other troubles—without having
any increase of currency. Who can tell
whbt the result might have been T Sup
pose the Sherman law hail not been on the
statute book, and who can tell what would
have been the consequences to this coutry
from the great depressing facts which 1
have mentioned ? Sir, give the devil his
due. The law of IHIKJ may have many
faults: but I stand by it yet; and i will
defend it, not as a measure of good public
policy, not as a measure of i;ood in which
1 take any pride (because I was yielding
to dire necessity), but because without it
we would have met difficulties iu 1991 and
which would have staggered as much
mere than *h»> passing breeze of the honr.
\V< might have had a financial storm for ,»
mouth or even a year, growing out of
causes entirely diilurent from the causes
assigned by the President.

Tiu Seienti/ic American says that the
beautiful white buildings of the Exposition
are to be sold as junk. They are soon to
be advertised and knocked down to the
highest bidder. About the only things of
fotnre use in them are the iron and steel
arches and timbers. It is thought that
not more than $1,000,000 can be realized
from the auction. The Manufactures and
Liberal Arts building, which #1,600,000,
and which has $500,000 in arches alone,
will of necessity, it is belived, be given to
the man who will tear it down and carry
the material away. The magnitude of the
undertaking will be revealized wLen it is
stated that each arch contains twenty car
loads of steel, all the peices being firmly
rivited together. The salvage on the ad
ministration building will also be very
small. The Mines building, on the con
trary, is regarded as a more favorable pros
pect. The steel arches arc much lighter
than those of almost any other building on
the ground, and could be taken down and
set up again for a large workshop or facto
ry. They would also be available for a
depot of moderate size.
AWD now there is a consulting of diction
aries in the kite shaped track district of
Erie and Crawford. The New York Sun
nays that Mr. Sibley its representative, "is
only one of thoae freaks and saltimbancoes
of politics who are damped into Congress
for iU sins, strut and grimace before the
galleries for a term, and are heard and
heard of no more." The meaning of "sal.
timbancoes" is what they are hunting and
they are finding with more or less satisfac
tion that it is an Italian word meaning a
mountebank ot quack, and the majority of
the poeple will, with one accord, agree
that though its meaning is not generally
known its application was happily made
bjy the Democratic Sun to the Democratic
kite track statesman.
SKSATOR CAMEBOS'S vote has been put
down as doubtful on the question of the re
peal of silver purchaser but he dispels all
uncertainty by announcing that his mind
is unchanged on the silver question and
that he will vote against the repeal of
silver purchases. The Philadelphia I'rrts
remarks this is about what should have
been expected from Cameron. He and his
State long ago parted company in interest
and sympathy, but for reasons not neces
sary now to go into ha is still permitted to
misrepresent it in the Senate.

After 41 Years.
One day last week an old Hutler cointy
boy, or man rather, came into the CITI/.KS
office He spoke to ns, naming us. We
replied by saying we thought we had seen
him before, but that he had the advantage
of us, as to bis name. A fter keeping ns in
suspense for a while he revealed himself
as Martin McCandless.
Mr McCandless is a brother to ex-Sheriff
Abraham McCandless. yet living near
Hutler, of George McCandless, livinit here,

Chestnut, dec'd, ami of Washington Mc
('andless late of this place, deo'd. They
were all born aud raised a short distance
east of Butler. In 1852 Martin left home
lor California in search of gold. He was
successful there and has followed gold and
silver mining as a business ever since. As
the new States in the West sprang up he
went to them. In Montana he mined sue
cessfully. At present ho is located in
Idaho where he owns one silver mine and
has a half interest in another one. These
mines have been shut down because of the
trouble about and low price ol silver, and
for the first time be takes occassion to re
visit the scenes of his early days. He was
never married and is a well preserved
healthy looking man The story of bis
life since he has left Hutler, 41 years ago,
sounds more like romance than reality. He
is a very pleasant man in his manners,
level headed, honest and trutnful, and
just such a man as would likely get along
well in the wild and woolly west among
rough and all kinds of characters. He
would command their respect by his fair
ness ami mildness as well as by his cour
age and bravery.
His old friends here were glad to again
see him. J. H. X.

Rev. Critchlow Defends Himself.
During my travels fh Pennsylvania, Ohio,
and West Virginia, proselyting and work
ing on a genealogical record of my an
cestors, I hare mad* the acquaintance of a
Seat many people in all sphere? of life,
om the learned congressman down to the
humbler collier: and many of them I hold
as my deanst friends: but I had tp break
down the barriers ot prejudice before I
could approach them on any subject per
taining to Utah and the Mormons.and w:tl.
that obstacle out of the way. I had no
trouble in convincing them that the
"Mormons" as they are called are not
what their enemies have represented them
to be but just to the contrary.
It has been traditioned in a great many
people to dislike the Mormon people and
the old adage applies to them very nicely,
which is: "We hate some people because
we don't know them and we won't know
them because we hate them," and there
are thoa»ands of people who can give no
better reason for disliking the Mormons
other than they dislike them because they
don't know them. It has been the custom
of their huemies to lay every mean, con
temptable thing that has been done any
where aroL d a Mormon settlement to this
people, and I lind that the same evil
spirit prevails to a certain extent in But
ler county where I have labored for several
months,but I must confess that the people
of that county have, as a rule treated me
with due respect, but to show you that
there are exceptions to all rules I have
only to relate the following scandal which
actually took place soon alter I left that
country. . ..
Many of your readers will remember the
time I delivered several lectures in the
Huselton's Hall, Bulier, on "Utah and the
Mormons" well shortly after that time a
Mr. Critchlow, of Butler, eloped with a
voung ffirl but was subiiecjnently captured
and repremanded, I was in West \ irginia
at the time and remember reading an ac
count of the elopment in the Pittsburg
papers, and in a letter I received from a
friend in Butler county a few days later I
was surprised to learn that some disreput
able person or persons had reported that I
was the Critchlow that did the crime, and
to make it worse they reported that I took
the girl to Utah, to make her my wife or
one of mv wives, I forget which; and
many who were unfortunate enough not to
know anything about the case readily be
lieved I was the person and my friends
who knew where I was had a bard time in
convincing some of my innocence, but
when I made my appearance the second
time the originators of the scandal which
was not only a libel on me but the whole
Mormon people looked, to use an old ex
pression very sheepish.
The Mormons have been accused of
everything that occurs on the calander of
crime but "by their fruits ye shall know
them;" il any person will take pains to
study up the character of these people
they will find that their record for morality
is far better than the majority of the world
and their industry and frugality has been
an ensign unto the industrial world for
forty years and as to their education I
have only to refer yoa to the statistics of
the United States whioh places them
among the foremost states in the Union in
education notwithsaanding the age of the
Territory, and for their religion, with
polygamy abandoned, they are as liberal
minded a~ any sect fir denomination should
be, and to prove the assertion w ill refer
you to eleventh article of their laith which
is "We claim the privilege of worshiping
Almighty God according to the dictates of
our own concience and allow all men the
same privilege, let them worship bow,
where or what they may," and in short
they believe in "living and let live ' and
I would to God that all people, both re
ligions and secular, believed the same
thing, then there would be less Buffering
to-day throughout country.
Hoping that these people who are not
wise forjudging a matter before they have
beard it will bear in mind the injunction
of the Savior "Judge not that ye be not
judged, for with what judgment ye judge
ye shall be judged and with what measure
ye mete it shall be measured to you again.
