1SSUINU GOLD CEKTIFIVATKS.
In April, 1893, Secretary Carlisle
suspended the issue of gold certificates
in exchange for gold coin, says theI3ee.
This was in compliance with the law,
which requires that when the free
gold in the treasury falls below $100,
000,000 the issue of gold certificates
shall be suspended, and when this was
done tho treasury's free gold was con
siderably below the limit stated. Sec
retary GAge has revoked the order of
V.is predecessor and direc'el that gold
certificates of the denomination of $20
be issued to the amount of $10,000,000.
This action was induced by the an
ticipated demand for more paper
money when tho fall crop movement
begins, tho treasury having no other
way of meeting this demand than ty
the issue of certificates in exchange
for gold coin. It is an indirect method
of attaining tho object, as the gold
certificates will not to any considerable
extent be direct' employed in trade
operations, but they will enable the
banks to release greenbanke and sil
ver certificates of smaller denomina
tions than the gold notes. United
States Treasurer Roberts says that the
demand for currency is chiefly for
notes of smaller denominations than
$20. By using gold certificates of $20
and upward the other kinds of paper
can be turned more and more into de
nominations smaller, which will give
some relief. The issue of the certifi
cates wil not increase the volume of
currency, because gold will go into
the treasury in exchange for them, but
it will add to the circulation of other
paper money, the place of which in
bank holdings will be taken by the cer
tificates. It would seem that the secretary of
the treasury might judiciously have
ordered a larger issue of the gold
notes, though he can, of course, in
crease it if tho demand should call for
an increase. In tho present condition
of tho treasury an issue of fivo times
tb-3 amount of gold certificates ordered
would be justified and doubtless would
have trood results." j
SCHOOL CMXSIS MATTKli
Au interesting subject for the con
spiration of l'lattsmouth parents is
the f:e-t that the school oon-ui of this
year discloses a loss of some seven
hundred pupils of school age in the
l'lattsmouth city district as compared
with the census report of last year.
Coupled with tho fact of a greater at
tendance at thesehools of th city, this
loss in thw census figures shows up as
one of tho curiosities f tho times.
Thk Nhws scribe hasn't got tho exact
figures nt hand, but is informed that
tho census of Inst year showed the
presence in tho district of somewhat
more than ,.00 children of school age,
while this year tho figures givon out
wore only 1,7K0. Independent of tho
fact that thunti figurts iiilieiit a
heavy loss ot population which every
one nrquaintt cl with th" town and the
scarcity of empty houses knows is not
the oa-e it al-o means a lo-s to the
city schools ot Bomo ?1,L'0() to the school
fund of the city from the di-trihution
of the permanent school funds of the
state, and may piove an embarrassing
factor in the payment of the achool
It seems to The News that, if not
too late, tho school board should at
(nee proceed lo have a new census
taken, and even if it is too lata for ef
fective use this year the board ought
to investigate the matter and find
where the fault lies. One of two
things is certain either the census
has been enormously padded hereto
fore, or the census-taker was very
derelict in this duty this year.
Taking all tho facts into account, it
seems quite probable that the latter
fact is the true solution of the prob
lem. Up to this year for eleven years
past the school census was takcu by
D. K". IJarr, while this year a new
man was employed to do tho work, Mr
J. J wiss, wno made such a poor
showincr in his census of the Third
ward as an assessor, where,
it is reported, there are almost as
many voters as there nxe childienof
school ago. The public will await a
development of the real facts in this
cas-e with an interest far in excess of
its mere curiosity.
INDICATIONS OF PKOSI'KKITY.
The popocratic press of the state
has resorted to almost every kind of
argument imaginable to make it ap
pear that the country is not now en
joying a period of prosperity. One of
tho strongest evidences of prosperity
is found in the mortgage records of the
dilTereut counties, and ospecially is
this true in Cass county. The argu
ments the. papers use to head this on
is that the mortgages are satisfied by
reason of foreclosures. To show that
tiieir statements ftro not foundtd on
facts the record of Cass county, as
shown by the books in the ollice of
George A May, recorder of deeds.

These figures . show that the amount

out of money earned on his farm The
number of farm mortgages filed dur
ing tho six months was lo.' and the
number of released was 27o.
In the city property there were
seven foreclosures, tho total amount
of $2,193. while tiro number of mort
gages was seventy-eight against
ninety-nine released. Of course the
editors of these pessimistic sheets arc
obliged, to dish up a certain amount of
this sort of hard-time reading mutter
in order to hold their subscribers, but
if thej' will tell tho truth about the
mortgage record there will be but
little consolation in it for the poor.
