Tite Nicaraugua canal bill passed
the senate yesterday by a vote of 31 to
21 , and now goes to the house. Nearly
all the republicans voted or were paired
for the bill and most of the democrats
opposed it. It provides for a capital
atock of $100,000,000, and that the gov
ernment Bhall guarantee the payment
of $70,000,000 In bonds. In cane of de

atively small quantity of nilver can be

therefore that fixes the cost of the en

There is no doubt but a few mine own
ers, who have bonanza mines would
grow rich very fast for a short time,
till their mines were exhausted, but
with the great m-ijority of mine own
ers it would be different. Their
profits would not be great- but they
would doubtless become prosperous,
and give many men employment, and
would thereby contribute to the gen
eral wellfare, which ihrough them
would soon spread all over the land.
The Hee, however, labors under the
error which afflicts all gold standard
writers in that he assumes that all val

of that value has grown out of the
scarcity of g 'Id, made o by its having
been made the only metallic standard
of the present time, and that if bimet

ratio much of that value now attained
by gold would soon vanish. Once
