BANKS GIVE THE PEOPLE AN
Jule;e Miller Quotes from Gold Stand
ard Sources to Show That the Finan
cial Horrors of 1893 Were Manufac
tured for a Purpose.
(Henry G. Miller, in Chicago Record.)
The July number of the Forum con
tains a very interesting article contrib
uted by Mr. Wm. Solomon, "a member of
one of the leading international bank
ing houses in New York city, a stanch
supporter of Mr. Cleveland in 1892 and
a member of the committee on currency
of the Reform club." "When read in
connection with the events that tran
spired soon after the inauguration of
Mr. Cleveland as President it shows
why the "gold" men of New York, in
vestors of English capital In this coun
try, supported Mr. Cleveland and how,
and the object for which the financial
panic of 1893 was initiated.
In the course of the article he says:
"The dangers threatening the country
from an overthrow of the existing basis
of values which it was recognized would
result from the triumph of any but a
sound-money candidate inspired vast
numbers of men to go into a party or
ganization which was to claim the field
against the so - called Hill - Mur
phy - Sheenan machine. It was
well understood that a reform
of the tariff was to be the nom
inal issue of the campaign, and that all
the changes were to be rung upon that
theme; but enthusiasm for a reform of
the tariff would not have produced for
the 'anti-snapper movement the sinews
of war. What did produce them was
the conviction that the triumph of the
democratic party, with Mr. Cleveland
at its head, would mean a repeal of the
purchasing clause of the Sherman act.
A large number of the men who joined
actively in the work of organization,
though also tariff reformers, could not
have afforded to make the numerous
self-sacrifices necessary in taking an
active part in the canvass on any but
such a vital issue as that of the main
tenance of the integrity of currency.
The work of these men, happily was
well rewarded, first in the national con
vention in Chicago and subsequently
in congress by the repeal of the pur
chase clause of the Sherman act."
It thus appears that the real object
of these supporters of Mr. Cleveland,
who for the most part were "Cleveland"
republicans, was to secure a repeal of
the purchasing clause of the Sherman
act, and that their first success was by
withdrawing attention from this object
by making tariff reform the nominal
issue in the platform and placing Cleve
land upon it, and their second and final
success was the election of Mr. Cleve
land and the repeal of this clause.
This platform declared distinctly in
favor of the use of both gold and silver
as standard money of the country and
the coinage of both without discrimi
nating against either metal. This sub
ject was by both parties made to sleep
during the canvass, and the tariff, the
"nominal issue" of the campaign, was
the only subject discussed. "The fading
out of the silver issue," said the New
York Evening Post on Oct. 15, 1892, "is
one of the unmistakable signs of the
times. Hardly any one talks about it
now except those engaged in the pro
duction of the metal."
Mr. Cleveland was elected, and of the
members of congress then elected there
was, as stated in the public press, an
ascertained majority of forty-five in
favor of the free coinage of silver. The
very first thing attempted by Mr. Cleve
land after his inauguration was the pas
sage of a law by congress when it should
convene for the extra session was then
contemplated not for the reform of the
tariff, about which so much had been
said during the canvass, but for a re
peal of the purchasing clause of the
Sherman act, about which nothing had
been said. The sentiment of the west
and of the south was in favor of free
silver. This sentiment must be
changed. How was the change to be
The Chicago Tribune of April 28, 1893,
in speaking by its New York cor
respondent of the conference of Mr.
Carlisle, secretary of the treasury, with
the New York bankers the day previous
at the house of Mr. Williams, president
of the Chemical bank, said: "Mr. Car
lisle said that the country might as
well understand now as at any time
that it was suffering from a vicious
silver law, and he believed that the only
way to bring the silver-favoring com
munities to a realization of the evil
that is contained in that law is to per
mit them to have an experience with
the business depression which it is
bound to cause. Some of the bankers
smiled a little when they heard the
secretary make this statement, and it
seemed to them that Mr. Carlisle was
hinting to them his belief that silver
communities, or those sections of the
country where what is called silver
sentiment prevails, might just as well
at this time as at any other be brought
by personal experience to an under
standing of what the effect of the pres
ent silver policy of this government is
going to be. In other words, the bank
ers seem to think that Mr. Carlisle did
not regard a little experience of hard
times as an unmitigated evil just now,
sir.ee it would bring these communities
and the men who represent them in
congress to an understanding of these
financial matters, so that possibly a re
peal of the Sherman silver law and new
legislation in the right direction may
be looked for when congress meets.
"At all events the New York banks
fire not going to play the part of a stop
gap, and Mr. Carlisle was told that at
the conference yesterday. To turn $30,
000,000 or $40,000,000 of gold into the
treasury at present would be simply to
play into the hands of the silver men.
The secretary told the bankers that the
administration would continue to pay
gold as long as it had it, and that there
would be no issue of bonds unless an
emergency arose when it was evident
that the government must issue bonds
or else be unable to pay its obligations
in gold. The opinion of the bankers
is that Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Carlisle
propose to give the silver people an ob
ject lesson, and there is a feeling that
in the silver communities there are go
ing to be hard times, some business
depression, and that national bankers
who do business in these communities
are going to receive an impressive les
son before congress meets, so that it
is hoped there may be a change of senti
ment upon this matter when the extra
ordinary session of congress is called in
the early fall."
On June 7, six weeks after the "Will
iams house meeting," the New York
Sun in its money article said, among
other things: "The presidents of the
New York banks think that the so
called object lesson has been carried
far enough and that
they see nothing to be gained by a fur
ther shrinkage in values and the un
settling of credits."
But the war upon the west and south
was continued. On June 25 the India
mints were closed against the further
free coinage of silver (Cleveland and
John Bull were evidently working the
scheme together). The New York Tri
bune announced the news in startling
headlines: "A Blow at Silver Values
The Action of India Severely Depresses
the White Metal, Stimulating Repeal
Sentiment The Silver Men Are Dumb."
On June 30 the President issued his call
for an extra session of congress on Aug.
7 following. Mr. Cleveland in his mes
sage to congress said: "Our unfortu
nate financial plight is not the result
of untoward events nor of conditions re
lated to our natural resources, nor is it
traceable to any of the afflictions which
! frequently check national growth and
prosperity. With plenteous crops, with
abundant promise of remunerative pro
duction and manufacture, with unusual
invitation to safe investment, and with
satisfactory assurance to business en
terprise, suddenly financial distrust and
fear have sprung up on every side.
Numerous moneyed institutions have
suspended, because abundant assets
were not in.mediately available to meet
the demands of frightened depositors.
Surviving corporations and individuals
are content to keep in hand the money
they are usually anxious to loan, and
those engaged in legitimate business
are surprised to find that the securities
they offered for loans, though hereto
fore satisfactory, are no longer ac
cepted. Values, supposed to be fixed,
are fast becoming conjectural and loss
and failure have invaded every branch
of business. I believe these things are
principally chargeable to congressional
legislation touching the purchase and
coinage of silver by the general gov
ernment." The American Bankers' association
of New York on Aug. 19, 1893. issued a
circular to the bankers of the United
States, which, among other things, said:
"It is manifest that the immediate
cause of the prolonged stringency is the
fear and apprehension of disaster en
gendered in the minds of the people by
the continued purchases of silver by the
government, and by the unceasing
issues of its obligations thereof, re
deemable in gold, which fear and ap
prehension can only be removed and
confidence restored by the removal -of
the cause. The president of
the United States having convened con
gress in extra session and recommend
ed to it such a repeal, the power of pub
lic opinion should be brought to bear
upon congress to induce favorable ac
tion thereon. This may best be done by
invoking the aid of the press and by
citizens writing to their senators and
representatives, and by sending them
petitions urging such repeal, all of
which should be done to the fullest ex
tent posible and without delay."
It is said that "between April 27, the
day of the Williams house meeting,
.and Dec. 30, 1S93, a period of eight
months, more than 15,000 bankruptcies
and suspensions of commercial and in
dustrial concerns and companies had
taken place, and more than 600 banking
institutions and firms had been serious
ly injured or were wholly ruined. The
total amount involved in the bank
ruptcies and suspensions of all these
firms, companies and institutions dur
ing these eight months was roundly
$750,000,000. Three million men, women
and young people who were contentedly
at work in the shops, factories and
mills on the 27th of April, 1893, were
out of work on the 1st of January, 1894."
In the midst of the wildest excite
ment this measure was driven through
the house Aug. 27, and the next day
the house bill was reported to the
seriate and passed that body Oct. 30.
To secure the passage of this repeal bill
it is conceded the executive patronage
was used without limit.
To arrest the production of silver by
the goverment and thus remove one
of the obstacles in the way of a perma
nent fold standard brought upon the
country financial ills which for magni
tude can only be likened to those caused
by the civil war. In the light of this
experience how much will it cost the
country in the destruction of values to
remove from circulation all our silver
and paper currency and substitute for
it gold and convertible bank paper?
That i3 what the single gold standard
means, and is now the avowed object
of gold monometallists. When this ob
ject shall have been accomplished, "as
money is the counterbalance of all
things purchased by It," it will be so
reduced in quantity as to be easily
cornered, and prices of all forms of
property, including labor, will be dic
tated by the owners of money, whose
interests wi'l be to reduce their general
level to the lowest possible plane. It is
for the people to say whether this shall
be their condition
- Sheep Industry of Patagonia.
Down in Punta Arenas, a port on
Terra del Fuego island, there Is much
enthusiasm over the sheep industry,
says a writer in the New York Sun.
A manager for a French company, own
ing something over 100,000 sheep, with
the necessary horses, said that they
made 3 francs (about 60 cents) on
every head clear of all expenses from
the sale of wool alone. The increase
of the lambs averaged about 90 per
cent of the ewes, and this was an ad
ditional profit. WThen told that esti
mates made up the coast called for 100
per cent increase, he replied , that that
could be had only when labor was
abundant enovgh to care for the lambs
when first dropped. The lamb at
birth does not know anything not
even Its own mother. Such helpless
beings need great care, though after
a week or so they require no more at
tention. The long-wooled varieties of sheep
are in favor there. A common ewe
will weigh from 160 to 180 pounds In
the fall. The lowest average of wool
sheared is said to be 7 pounds a sheep.
A printed table of statistics, which the
manager carried, showed that the aver
age yield in 1889 in all the Argentine
was 4.4 pounds, while that of the
United States was exactly that of the
lowest yield of his flock 7 pounds. His
range was considered poorer than the
average, but it had sustained two
sheep per hectare (two and a half
The one disease to which Patagonia
sheep are liable is the scab. This is
kept under by dipping them in various
kinds of baths, the expense for same
running from $80 to $90 gold per year
for every 1,000 sheep. The next great
est expense Is for the killing of pan
thers. A common night's work of the
panther is the killing of sheep to the
value of $100 gold. Every shepherd,
therefore, carries a carbine, and must
be supplied with all the cartridges he
wants. These rifles sell for less
money in the Punta Arenas stores than
in New York gun shops, but the annual
expense for rifles and cartridges on
some ranches runs up to hundreds of
dollars. Foxes and a species of wild
cat make havoc with the young lambs,
and so these must be exterminated, too.
What with hunting down vermin and
looking after the sheep to keep them
on the range and to dip them for the
scab, the French manager has to em
ploy a man for every 2,500 in his flock.
On the whole, his flocks, numbering
a little over 100,000 sheep, cost the com
pany 200,000 francs (about $40,000) per
year, while the sale of the last clip
yielded 500,000 francs (about $100,000),
and the price was not high. In his
judgment, it would be a very poor
business man who, after starting with
a good outfit and 1,000 ewes on the
Patagonia range, did not attain an in
come of $20,000 gold a year at the end
of ten years.
Decreasing I'ne of Horses.
Electric and cable roads, and more
especially the bicycle, are playing the
mischief, not only with horse breeders
and the horse markets, but with most
other industries. Most of these, how
ever, are taking steps to overcome the
competition and loss of trade conse
quent upon the changed conditions.
Some livery stable keepers. finding
that the demand for horses and car
riages was rapidly declining, have
stocked up with bicycles for rent. One
cable road that extended out into the
suburbs, found that the receipts had
fallen off so largely on account of the
bicycle riders who formerly took the
cars for their outings, that a deficit
was likely to result, and added a trailer
to some of their cars on which they
carry free the bicycles of their pa
trons. Horseshoers complain of a se
rious falling off in their trade, and
many of them are forced to seek other
occupations, or add some other branch
of work to that of horseshoeing. The
trade in harnesses, wagons and other
' vehicles has fallen off, and the wear
and tear on shoes is largely reduced.
If the livery stable keeper rents bi
cycles instead of horses, he'll not need
to buy so much of the farmer's hay and
oats. Meanwhile, the extension of the
trolley and cable systems of propelling
street cars goes merrily on, and the
bicycle trade is booming as never be
fore. A good many farmers are using
them, too. Rural New Yorker-

Prof. F. L. Washburn, of the Oregon
Experiment Station, gives, through the
columns of the Rural Northwest, a re
cipe which he has found most excellent.
This recipe is well known to many
in fact, has been published yet there
may be many who would be glad to
know it. Prof. Washburn states that
he has kept eggs for one year and
found them excellent for cooking at the
expiration of that time. Another lot
was kept for two years, and then about
two-thirds of them, or nearly that pro
portion, was found acceptable for use
in the kitchen. In this second lot the
good eggs were at the bottom of the
jar, where, naturally, the liquid was
stronger, while the yolks of the eggs
above had shriveled and hardened, ren
dering them unfit for use. The re
cipe is as follows:
Dissolve one pint of salt in one gal
lon of water; slack two pounds of quick
lime in three gallons of water; when
entirely slacked, stir and allow it to
settle two or three times and then pour
the clear liquid off into a crock or any
receptacle that can be covered, and add
the salt water, making in all four gal
lons of liquid.
Eggs placed in this must be perfect
ly fresh, clean and not cracked. They
must be lowered into the liquid and
not allowed to drop to the bottom of
the crock, thereby running risk of be
ing broken. No treatment of eggs be
fore putting in brine Is necessary.
Cattle Marketing in Texas The
Texas Stock and Farm Journal says:
The munificent rains which have fallen
over every part of the range country,
with the exception of the extreme
northwest, preclude the probability of
marketing much half-fat stuff. The
opportunity Is also given the south
Texas cattleman to ship to market be
fore the Indian territory movement be
gins. The difference in conditon be
tween the north and south Texas cattle
taken to the territory will insure the
stringing out of their shipment, and,
taken altogether, the expected rush and
consequent drop in prices when the
grass movement begins bids fair not to
materialize. Anyway, that's how it
looks now, but you never can . tell
what to expect in the cattle business.

A French paper teils of a man who
oucht to be set down as the meanest
man of the time. His name is Rapi
neau, and he is the happy father of
three children. His chief claim to
meanness lies in the fact that he has
lately discovered a plan to reduce his
weekiy expenditure. Every morning',
when sitting down at table, he makes
the following proposal: "Those who
will go without breakfast shall have
twopence." "Me me!" exclaim the
youngsters in chorus. Rapineau gives
them the money and suppresses the
breakfast. In the afternoon when the
children were anxiously expecting their
first meal, Rapineau calls out, "Those
who want their dinner must give two
pence;" and they all pay back what
they received in the morning for going
without their breakfast, and in that
way Rapineau saves a meal a day.
