This means that the producer is now selling his product for about one-half the amount of money which he former ly obtained for It.

Prior to 1844 the price of gold bullion In London averaged 3 17s. 6d. an ounce, while the mint rate was 3 17s. 10d. In other words, an ounce of gold in the form of coin was worth 4Va pence more than the same gold was be fore it was coined. Why: The gold ite persistently claims that the value of gold is altogether independent of coin age. Then what reason was there for English coin being worth is pence an ounce more than plain gold bullion? There could be but one reason. The coin was more desirable than the bul lion. But why more desirable? There was just one thing that could be done with coin that could not be done with uncoined bullion. People could pay their debts with it. The coin was "le gal tender." The man who owed an other a pound sterling could tender a gold sovereign in full payment and the creditor was legally bound to take it. But ten tons of gold bullion at the mar ket price, of which we hear so much, would not be a eood "tender" for the smallest debt. Therefore a man who had gold bullion would sell it to some broker for less than its coinage rate in order to get money, because with money he could pay his debt or procure any-, thing else that hp needed. But it may be asxed. How was it that the bullion was worth less than the coin when coinage was free? For the simple reason that there was a de lay in executing the coinage. When a man deposited gold at the mint, on an average he had to wait about sixty days for returns. Rather than do this he took the bullion to some broker and suffered a loss of 40 pence on each ounce in order to at once get the coin. But in 1S44 the English Parliament passed a law compelling the Bank of England to receive all gold bullion of sufficient fineness and pay for it at the rate of 3 17s. 9d. an ounce, the bank being allowed a margin of l1 pence per ounce on the mint rate of 3 17s. lOVd. From that day to this there has never been an ounce of gold bought or sold in the London market for le.-s than the price set upon it by the law. Here in America, if the depositor of gold had to wait for his money, the bullion would be worth less than the coin, and the difference would be in proportion to the length of the wait. If instead of waiting sixty days, as formerly in England, the depositor had to wait five years to get his coin, it is scarcely necessary to say that the dif ference would be very great. If the bullion could not be coined at all the difference would be still greater. But there is no delay and no charge for coinage. As soon as the value of a deposit is ascertained the depositor re ceives a draft for the amount, and the transaction is closed so far as he is concerned. The coinage is ..hen execut ed according to the capacity or conveni ence of the mint. Of course the closing of the Ameri can mint to gold would not destroy it coinage value elsewhere. The mints of other countries remaining open it would be coined in those countries at the rates prescribed by law. For example, it would still be coined in England at 3 17s. lOAd. an ounce, because the law provides that any person depositing gold at the royal mint may have it coined into money at that rate. If every other country in the world should prohibit the coinage or use of gold as money it would still be coined at 3 17s. lOd. in England under the existing law. Its nominal or "money" value would be the same. But its value in exchange would be less. It would not buy so much. If a man could not use gold as money anywhere except in England he would be very silly to give as many bushels of wheat or pounds of cotton for an ounce of gold as he will give now when it can be coined and used in many countries. So we see tnat tne expressions that a "gold dollar is always worth a dol lar," or "100 cents," and that "gold bullion is just as good as gold coin" do not touch the essence of the money question at all.

Some of our contemporaries seem to be laboring under a misapprehension with reference to the position of this paper and a word of explanation may not be ill-timed. The National Bimctallist has noth ing but kind words and kind feelings for all who are laboring for the remon eilzation of silver. It is endeavoring to educate the peo ple to the very best of its ability, and, j what is more, it is not seeking to make any money out of it. j If it can do some good, and just pay j expenses, the ambition of the manage ment will be more than satisfied. We also desire to say once more and in the clearest possible way that the ! National Bimetallist does not repre- j sent the "Patriots of America" or any other sr-crot political organization whatever. Its work is being dono ! openly, honestly and in the great fo rum of the American people. Referring to a suggestion lately made that the National Bimetallist strikes Democratic gold bugs only, we desire to say that we really did not know that Mr. Sherman wa., or ever had been, a Democrat. Our recollection is that we have struck him a few blows and one page of each issue of this pa per regularly links the names of Sher man and Carlisle. An attack upon Sherman Is in effect an attack upon every other Republican who agrees with his views. We very freely admit, though, that our heaviest blows have been aimed a: Cleveland and his Democratic cuck oos. That, however, is merely becatise the Cleveland administration is now in control of our finances and is the great power that Immediately confronts us. Our strictures upon Cleveland. Car lisle. Herbert, Morton. Eckles and Preston have been called out by their recent utterances and relate to cur- . t rent events. j If they were in private life we should have paid no attention to them except, perhaps, as their utterances might have j furnished texts upon which we could have advantageously laid the true doc- j trine of bimetallism before our read- ers. The silver question cannot be settled by wildly kicking at nothing and wast- ; ing whole magazines of ammunition on the manner in which silver was demon- j etized twenty-two years ago. What we want chiefly is to show that it is for the j best interests of the people that it j should be restored, whatever may have j been tne meinou oi :is uemonetizaiiou. In conclusion, and for all, we desire to say that the National Bimetallist ! stands upon absolutely impartial ; ground. It will attack a Republican j just as readily and as strongly as it will j a Democrat. But the prominent Re- ' publican anti-silver men have been "ly ing low" of late. When they emerge from cover our guns will be trained j upon them, and if they don't get hurt ; it will be because the National Bimet- ! allist is not able to bring the necessary j force to bear. j This journal makes the cause of hi- j metallism paramount to every other j question and will strike with all its power any man or any party that is opposed to the complete restoration of silver. But it does not intend to waste its shct upon those who are in hiding, whether they be Republicans or Dem ocrats. National Bimetallist. If tou are standing in the rear of a field 'battery of six guns, which is be ing rapidly worked, you must shout into vour comrade's ear to make him hear you. The din is that of fifty empty wagons being driven over a cobble-stone pavement. Your nerves are on edge and you ' involuntarily clap your hands over your ears to get an instant's respite. But it is no com parison to the position of the men Iving on the side-hill below the guns. They are only 100 feet below the pieces, and each and every man not only feels the full force of the con cussion as communicated to the earth from the "kick" of the gun, but the report itself seems to strike the spijial column and travel up to the back of the bead. Then, too, there is the fear of shells exploding prematurely, or of grape and canister "dribbling" to cause wounds or death, and it is a positive relief to see a column of the enemy break cover for a charge. The roar of the guns does not linger for hours after, as is the case with mor tars and siege guns, but you find your nerves on edge and your temper spoil ed for a day or two. The men who lay in lines with a battery firing over them probably endured more mental suffering than the enemy at whom the guns vere pointed. With the big guns the case is dif ferent. The tiring is terribly trying for the first few minutes, but this feeling gradually gives way to one of awe and sublimity. There is some thing so terrific and appalling you feel yourself so atoniless in compari sonthat you would speak in whis pers if the roar should suddenly cease. You are an onlooker; if assisting to work a gun physical activity would take away from the mental strain. When Admiral Porter got his twenty mortar boats, each armed with an eight and one-half ton mortar and a thirty-two pound rifle cannon, at work against the forts below New Orleans, and the big guns in both forts had opened in reply, there was something akin to the sound of heaven and earth coming together. The mortar shells weighed over L"00 pounds apiece, and the rush of them through the air made one's hair feel as if it crawled. The venomous hiss of a big skyrocket was magnilied thousands of times, to be followed by a crash which seemed to split the sky open into cracks and crevices. When the firing had continued until all reports had been merged into one steady roar there was little short of an earthquake on land and sea for ten miles around. The earth shook as if a great steam hammer was pounding it a few yards away. If standing near a tree one could feel the roots letting go of the soil with a sound like bugs crawling over dry leaves. On the wa ter irreat mud spots rose up here and there to show where the earth forty feet below had been disturbed.

Vm.vV- Mr' -1 j International liimc-t alliftt. j A correspondent writing a personal I letter, seems to be inclined to criticise what we said in our last issue about good as gold coin ior the simple reason that the law makes it so that is, by operation of law gold bullion is in stantly convertible into coin, and with out expense. But if there were a charge for coin ing, as above stated, a delay in getting returns, the bullion would not be worth as much as coin. We also see that the 'money value"' of gold is entirely a matter of law, be cause money itself is a matter of law. When we say that an ounce of pure gold is worth $20.67 we simply mean that an ounce of the metal will cut and stamp into that amount of money. But if there were no law on the subject gold would have no coinage value at all, because it could not be coined. Its writer taking the position that an in ternational bimetallist, Is no bimetallist at all. We did not intend to intimate that Senator Allison's bimetallism is of a satisfactory kind, for it is not. Bimetal lism which is based upon an impossiole condition, will never result in anything substantial. Such bimetallists have, though, a certain value in the discus sion, because when a man declares that he is in favor of restoring silver by in ternational agreement, it is a surrender of the entire gold side of the issue, so far as principle is concerned. It is an admission tnat silver was wrongfully demonetized and that it ought to be restored. This is the es sence of the question. Mr. Allison was value, then, would be just what it . mentioned in an article on "Kings and KJ KJ J J would exchange for in wheat, or cot ton, or corn, or whatever might be wanted. And this is the fact now. The real value of anything is what it will exchange foy in other things, because "value" is purely a term of exchange. If people will bestow a little thought upon the subject they will easily per ceive that the declaration of a gold dol lar always being worth 100 cents, which is put forth by the gold standard peo ple as a "clincher," does not in the re motest degree touch the main question. It takes just as many grains of gold to make a "dollar" as the law says shall be put into a dollar. At one time it took 27 grains of gold to make a make a dollar. Now it only takes 25 8-10. Why? Simply because the law has been cnanged. But to-day the gold dollar of 25 8-10 Patriots," merely for the purpose of showing the strength of the silver men's position, and that upon principle even a prominent candidate for presi dential nomination on the republican ticket was compelled to admit that the3' are right. No reader of this paper need have any fear of the National Bimetallist being satisfied with "international bi metallism" as it is preached in the United States. We have no use for any man, who, while admitting that silver ought to be remonetized, will not vote for it until England says the word.

Thirty miles away the roar was like that of a gale sweeping over, a pine forest. Horses and cattle sought to hide awayj birds flew about uttering iie-? of distress, and dogs pointed their noses toward the sky and howled dismally. Birds and fowls felt the air and earth-waves long before human beings did, and their actions were so queer as to become alarming. The coming of the roar to those afar off was preceded by a jarring of the earth and a moaning in the air. Springs overflowed and the water circled around as in whirlpools. The wildest species of birds left the woods and thickets and came flying about the houses, and rabbits deserted their bur rows and sought the companionship of domestic animals.
