The patron saint of Hawkeyedem
ocratic, "Stormy Jordan, is finding
his road a hard one to travel since
the election. Judge Woolson has
refused to grant him a writ of i
hebeas corpus to enable him to re- '
eume hi attendance at his bar in States would have a different experi
Ottumwa. Jordan has been the ! ence if the policy were adopted here
most notorious saloon-keeper in of issuing a vast volume of paper
Iowa. He defied the law until the
fines recorded against him .
amounted to something like $20,000, '
and then was allowed to go free on
his pledge to leave the state and
never a train en .race in the saloon
business. As there was no hope of J
collecting the fines, Governor Lar- i
rabee thought this a good way to
get rid of Jordan. The fines were to
stand if he returned. Jordan went
to Denver, where he immediately
broke one part of his pledge by go
ing into saloon business.
When Governor Boies became the
chief executive this exiled demo
crat returned to his old home in
Ottumwa feeling sure of executive
clemency. He had it the extent
that he was allowed to resume hie
old bnsiness without any reference
from the governor. His saloon was
larger, more gorgeous, and better
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 office. But the temper
ance people at Ottumwa again be
gan their warfare on Jordan, and
with the aid of United States of
ficers succeeded in placing him be
yond the help of the democratic
THE LABORER SUFFERS.
The currency question is one that
is of vital interest to the people of
the United States. Senator Sher
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
and producer." There is no sound
er proposition than this in political
economy. It is not the capitalist
who suffers from a debased cur
rency, because the moment he sees
the danger coming he prepares for
it by putting his affairs in a condi
tion of safety. He can hoard his
ffold and can find a secure place for
whatever securities or bonds he j
may possess that will bring gold.
He is not dependent on daily earn
ings or the sale of products. It is a
very old axiom that capital can al
ways take care 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.
But 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 all 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 ia 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
coming 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 agrictiltuial producers
is very much the same. The large
majority of the n are compelled lo
sell their products as soon us they
are ready for the market, and to
tae in exchange for them what
ever money is current They can
not shrink the bushel nor reduce
the pound in order to make them
selves good against the declining
purchasing powe' of the money
tMey receive for their 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 a well-established
proposition sustained by universal
experience. An example is at hand
in the financial condition of the
Argentine Republic, where, with a
circulation of about $100 per capita,
busiues is paralyzed and the cur
, rency is so depreciated that the pur
chasing power of one dollar of it,
relatively to erold, is only about
There is not a valid
reason for assuming that the United
money, as certain demagogues and
their unreasoning followers are
urging, and less rapidly, though no
less surely, a like result would come
from the free and unlimited coinage
of silver. The real friends of the
laborer and producer are those
who oppose all measures whose ef-
feet would be to lower the purchae
ing power of money. Duluth
THE Dallas News paragrapher
writes sound sense and true philos
ophy when he says: "The Young
America should be inspired with a
deeD-seated reverence for funda
mental truths while be is tender
and impressionable." "As the twig
is bent the tret's inclined." The
foundations of a house are the most
important part of its structure, and
the first or early impsessions of life
are those that last and build up the
man and woman. Start Young
America rierht. He may go wrong
later on, but a voice within will be
always calling him, and the time
will come, sooner or later, when he
will stop and listen and heed. Yes,
plant the "fundamental truths" in
the hearts of the young. Planters
of truth in the minds and souls of
the yonng will have the surest and
grandest of all harvests, for truth
never falls to the grouud to waste.
FOR every dollar's worth of wool
en goods imported, American man-
facturers produce about seven dol-d
lars' worth here. Most people, ex
cept Anglomaniaces and "reform
ers," find American woolen good
enough for them, and unless the
free traders succeed in breaking
down our protective system, we
may soon except to parody the old
English sneer "Who reads an
American book?" by the Ameri
can sneer "Who wears an English
coat?" American Economist.

cabinet during this administration

The Y. L. R. R. A. have arranged
with F. H. Thompson, of the Excel
sior Library Bureau of Chicago, to

We bespeak a cordial reception
for Mr. Thomas or his representa
tive from every progressive or
public spirited citizen and any
person who is interested in educa
tion and mental culture. To start

tion, poetry, fiction, references and
miscellaneous. We will endeavor
to satisfy your literary wants and
trust as in the past you will favor
