Hon. R. H. Windham read from
the comptroler's report of the cur
rency last night at the meeting of
the board of trade, which thowed
that while all the other towns in the
atatc of Nebraska had decreased in
their individual bank deposits
from $:t4,(XX) to $l,IJxy)00,tlie deposits
in I'lattHinouth had increased
$C!,tXX). This is an extraordinary
showing and should stop nil com
plaints of hard times in this city.
For every dollar's worth of wool

facturers produce sibout seven dol

free traders succeed in breaking
down our protective system, we
may soon except to parody the old

American book?" by the Ameri

Thekk was expended in Maine,
last year, $3.024,8a0 in building new
or in creasing the capacity of old

fording employment to 4,178 more
employes. This is a pretty fair rec
ord for a state of but fiot),0lX) inhabi

Since Hlaine has declined to be a
candidate for president of these
United States.aspirants are bobbing
up all over the country. Senators
Sherman and Allison are out again;
also R. A. Alger and Judge Creshani,
and Senator Cullom has just an
.not! need himself as si candidate,
jiud we also see by our exchanges
that Robert T. Lincoln is to be
lirought forward. Three or four of
these gentlemen maybe presented
o the convention, but the nomina
tion that is tci say, of Gen. Harri
son is inevitable. With lilaine's
retirement from the contest theonly
doubts which have been held have
be -n removed. From present indi
cations the remit will be reached
on the first ballot. No emergency or
exigency which is in sight or which
has any chance to present iiself be
fore the date of the meeting of the
convention will imperil his pros
poets in this respect. Indeed, every
consideration of political fairness
and expediency demands his selec
tion by his party for another term.
His administration Inn been able,
clean and satisfactory. lie is a sin
cere, level-headed and progressive
official, who stands for the highest
an 1 best that is in the republican
creed. Delicate and important
questions of home ami foreign pol
icy have frequently presented them
selves to him since his accession to
the presidency, and in every in
stance the interests and honor ol
the country have been ably and
siiecessfullv defended. Not onh
does (Jen. Harrison deserve another
nomination, but he is the strongest
candidate that the party can select
in this exigency.
SOUTHLRN WAR CLAINS.
A.M still the souther war-claims
go on piling up. They now num
ber more than 'J.tKK). One of the
latest of these propositions is "to
reimburse the state of Louisiana
for loss in the destruction of the
stiite capitol s.t Haton Rouge, while
in possession of the military au
thorities in On the same
day that this was introduced a bill
was offered "to pay John Foster, of
Kli.hbetb, W. Va., for ferrying the
United States soldiers during the
Southern congressmen do not
offer these war-claims bills simply
for the sake of havingthem printed.
They moan busiiiesn. The war
claims committee also means busi
ness. Seven of the members of
that committee sire from southern
or bonier stales. They know "what
they are there for."
In a single day this war claim
committee has reported back to
the house with favorable recom
mendations fifty-seven of these war
claims bills. On that same day the
two committees on pension and
invalid ponsionsreportcd favorably
just twelve pensions bills.
These figures will be better sip-
precicted when it is stated that,
up to date, the number of bills re
ported back by all of the committee
to the house, favorably or unfavor
ably, is only lf8.
There have been introduced in
the house since this congress con
vened M7 bills. Of these bills
those which relate to the payment
of southern and border state losses
sustained by the war number more
Reports have been made upon 1!W

THE LABORER SUFFERS.
The currency question is one that
is of vitsil interest to the people of
the United States. Senator Slier-
man, in his speech to the members
of the Ohio legislature after his re
election, said: "All measures to
lower the purchasing power of
money operate against the laborer
a ml prod tier." There is no sound
er proposition than this in political
economy. It is not the capitalist
who sulfers from a debased cur
rency, because the moment he sees
the danger coming be prepares for
it by putting his affairs in a condi
tion of safety. lie can hoard his
gold and can find a secure place for
whatever securities or bonds he
may possess that will bring gold.
He is not dependent on daily earn
ings or the ssile of products. It is a
very old axiom that capital can al
ways take csire of itself, and it is
true to-day and will always be true.
Neither does the manufacturer
suffer from the lowering of the pur
chasing power of money, because
he can add enough from time to
time to his goods to secure him
from loss, and the same is true in a
measure of the merchant.
Hut the situation of the laborer
and producer is far different. In
the case of the former the uniform
rule is that his wages is the last
thing to be increased. It is only
after the values of sill commodities,
as expressed in a depreciated cur
rency, have largely advanced that
the wage-earner can obtain more
pay for his services, and in many
cases he it compelled to make a
fight for this. In the meantime he
must take the money that is current
regardless of its relative value. He
cannot protect himself against a
coining danger of currency depreci
ation, as the capitalist can, nor can
he recoup himself from time to
time as can the manufacturer or
the merchant He has only his
labor and he must sell at the
market price for the money which
the law declares to be a legal ten
der, regardless of what its pur
chasing power may be. The situa
tion of the agricultuial producers
is very much the same. The large
majority of then are compelled to I
sell their products sis soon as they ;
ure ready for the market, and to
take in exchange for them what
ever money is current. They can
not shrink the bushel nor reduce j
the pound in order to make them.
Selves good against the declining
purchasing power of the money
t iey receive for tin ir commodities.
They have absolutely no way of
protecting themselves from the
evils of currency depreciation.
Obviously, then, the chief suffer
ers from the debasement of the cur
rency would be the laborers and
the producers. This is not a mere
theory, but si well-established
proposition sustained by universal
experience. An example is at Jisinu
in the financial condition of the
Argentine Republic, where, with si
circulation of iibout $KX) per capita,
biisine-s is paralyzed and the cur
rency is so depreciated that the pur
chasing power of one dollar of it,
r lamely to goltl, is only about
tw -nty cents. There is not a vsilid
reason forassuiningthat the United
States would have a different expori-
e ice !t die policy were adopted nere
o' issuing a vast volume of paper
ni'iiiey, as certain demagogues and
th -ir unreasoning followers are
urging, and less rapidly, though no
l-'ss surely, a like result would come
from the free and unlimited coinage
of silver. The real friends of the
laborer and producer sire those
vlio oppose sill measures whose ef
I -ct would be to lower the purchas
ing power of money. -Duluth
The patron t-aint of Hawkeyedein
ocratic, "Stormy Jordsin, is finding
his road a hard one to travel since
the election. Judge Woolson has
refused to gnint him a writ of
heliosis corpus to enable him to re
sume his attendance sit tiis bar in
Oltumwa. Jordan has been the
most notorious saloon-keeper in
Iowa. He defied the law until the
lines recorded agsiinst him
amounted to something like $'.20,000,
and then was allowed to go free on
bis pledge to leave the state and
never iigain en jrage in the saloon
business. As there was no hope of
collecting the lines. Governor Lar
rabee thought this si good wsiy to
got rid of Jordan. The fines were to
stand if bo returned. Jordan went
to Denver, whore he immediately
broke one piirt of bis pledge by go
ing into saloon business.
When Governor Hoies became the
chief executive this exiled demo
crat returned to his old home in
Ottumwa fooling sure of executive
clemency. He had it the, extent
hat he was allowed to resume his
old business without any reference
from the governor. His saloon wsis
larger, more gorgeous, and bettor
patronized than ever before. It
ran wide open, without fear of the
law. The saloon keeper defied the
officers of the law and gave them to
understand that he had a friend at
the executive oilice. Hut the temper
since people sit Ottuinwa again be

with the aid of United Slates of
