At the second battle of I hill Hun our
colonel was ordered to hold a position
on the right at whatever cost; and the
word was passed along the lines that
no one should go to the rear on any
excuse, even for fresh cartridges. For
two hours we lay in lines on the
ground without firing a shot, though
the enemy's bullet.s, and now and 'then
a shell, fell among us to wound and
kill. While we were enduring it as
best we could a private named Stevens
looked back at the captain and asked:
"Cap. can I go to the rear after
"Against orders," was the reply.
Fire minutes later Stevens looked
back and held out a M m dy hand nml
"Cap, can 1 go to the rear and have
the thumb amputated?''
"Against orders!" was the answer.
Seven or clglii minute later Stevens
received n bullet in hU shoulder, and.

was about to address him. when Ste
vens called out:
"Never mind. Cap I'm a dead man
and don't want to go to the rear!"
With that he fell over and straggled
for a moment and was dead. A bullet
had passed clear through him liefore
he called out.
Talking It Over.
Three months after Joe Skinner de
serted from our regiment he was capt-
ured on his farm at home by the pro-
vost marshal and sent back to his reg-
iment in Irons for trial. He had do-
serted in the face of the enemy, and it
was generally believed that he would
be shot, and great was the astonish-
meat, therefore, when he got oil with
a three months sentence to the Dry
Tortugas. When Joe was brought be
fore his judges he had a simple story
to tell, and he told it in a simple way.
"I got to thinkiu' it all over, and
come to the conclusion that we'd had
enough war. 1 started out from camp

Deepest Depths of the Ocean.
Iiy slow degrees we are getting to
know the contour of the sea bottom
almost as well as we do that of the
surface of the land, but it cannot be
said that we have found the deepest
water on earth. Depths of 1",000 to
J7,3GG feet have been reached in the
North Atlantic from time to time, and
one of 27,930 feet was discovered in
the North Pacific off the eastern coast
of Japan, where there is a remarkable
gulf or depression. All these measure
ments have, however, been outstripped
by one recently taken south of the
Friendly Isles in the South Pacific by
II. M. S. Penguin. A depth of LN.(400
feet had been marked when the sound

BANKER OF TO-DAY.
SELFISH. UNPATRIOTIC AND

They Should Come Out and lift Heard
In Itelulf of the Suffering; Peo
It is possible to conceive of a banker
possessing large ability and great in
fluence, and observing that his coun
try suffers because its finances are in
disorder, coming forward, impelled by
feelings of patriotism, to offer, without
hope of money reward, his advice and
his assistance in the work of restoring
order and confidence. Such a man,
performing such a service, would de
serve and would receive honor from
his countrymen. The land is tilled
with bankers, great and -small; but
where among them appears a figure of
this kind in the present crisis? In
stead there looms up before a nation
bewildered and befooled by the public
press quite another figure. It is that
of the variety of banker who first pro
cures ths rejection of one of the money
metals: who then instructs the dull
witted people that there can be no
other sound money than the remaining
metal; who then proceeds to corner the
gold, which could not have been cor
nered had silver been retained; and
who. finally, making the treasury of
the United States his victim and the
peace and honor of the country his
plaything, proceeds to gorge himself
with the profits of his thimble-rigging
operations. With one hand he creates
panic; with the other he despoils the
wealth-producers of the fruits of their
toil. He intimidates the newspapers:
he cows other bankers who wish to In

in defense of their constituents; he
creates a reign of terror in which it is
j hardly safe for a free American citizen
even to hint at the fact that his policy
is that of the brigand and the thief.
In truth, the performances of Captain
Kidd were the most frolicsome gam
bols of an innocent child compared with
the plundering of this bandit who
makes the prosperity of a great nation
his prey, and the treasury of the rich
est country In the world a mere con
duit to turn into his pocket the gains
filched from the possession of honest
The banker performs a most useful
function in modern society. No Judi
cious man will complain if, while en
gaged in lending money at reasonable
interest, men who are in that business
shall acquire a good share of the wealth
created by the labor of others. Many
bankers are Just as good men and just
as good and loyal citizens as other men.
and are as incapable of doing a dis
honorable or unpatriotic act. But the
; banking class suffers just now in popu
! lar esteem because, as a class, it has
' rallied to the support of the nefarious
; gold system, and because it gives a
1 least tacit approval to the great money
sharps in the large cities vho have

j advantage. These big bankers ap

uously urged, that a man, because he is
a banker, knows more about these
things than other men. is conspicuous
ly absurd. The general run of bank
ers is composed of men of very moder

hardly able to write a letter containing
correct syntax and orthography. Hut.
whether they be wise or foolish, it is

Cleveland's recent performances and

A BLOW IN FAVOR
Struck by Kngland, hut Kvidently
To the Editor of the Ledger: No more
forcible argument has been made for
the return by this country to a bimetal
lic standard than the threat of the Eng
lish bankers to destroy the credit of
thi3 nation if it persits in the attempt
to maintain national honor. Our Eng
lish masters can well afford to press
the cup of humility, filled with the
dregs of dishonor, to the lips of those
who, self-seekingly, have made the
financial affairs of this nation depend
ent upon the whims and policies of the
European bankers. Like sharks they
have followed the ship of state, wait
ing for the storm that, in the distress
they might fatten and feast.
Here is a nation first in resources,
first in the geniti3 of application, first
in native powers, abashed by a coterie
of English Shylocks. who threaten to
visit dire disaster upon it if the attempt
is made to uphold a long and estab
lished national policy; and congress,
yea, the wise (?) men of the land are
compelled to counsel over the displeas
ures of this cabal.
Is it not about time for some modern
Monroe to arise and ar.uounce a dis
tinctive American policy one that will
not entangle itself in European greed,
or bt subservient to the pleasure of
money sharks? In which lurks the
more venom, in which lies the greater
danger, England's aggressions on a
South American republic, or English
mastery of American finances? A su
premacy so potent that national esteem,
dignity and honor must tremble in as
serting itself. It is some comfort to
know that the impotency of the Amer
ican financial system is at last about
to dawn upon the nation, and even to
penetrate the dense fog that has so
long enveloped the white house. Were
it not for the magnitude, the serious
ness of the situation, that plaintive
cry for help by its blind habitant would
be amusing. Oh, Grover, how often
these silver cranks have told you so,
but you would not heed them. But In
the hour of thy distress they will come

God moves in a mysterious way na

that so long has held them in the grasp
of greed. If so. and the subtle chains
of Shylock are broken, who can say
that Venezuela has not performed well
her allotted part in advancing the
tide of humanity to a broader and freer
field? Anything that will break the
bonds of financial slavery that now
holds this country to Europe may be
accounted as a divine blessing. Turn

PRECIOUS METALS IN CHINA.
l'urhtiiic l'ower of Silver Han ot le
ollned but ioll lfa Appreciated.
(Prepared for The American by Col. ,
E. R. Jefferds. an American Engineer,
now in Shanghai.) Gold, in the ;
for of money, is never seen j
in China, neither are gold ingots
in use in trade, but are used for hoard- j
ing only. Hoarded gold is generally
found In only two forms. One is in i
ingots shaped like a boat about 3.6 j
inches long, 0.8 inches wide, and weigh- j
Ing 11.573 oz. Troy weight; the other j
is in the form of gold leaf, measuring J
about eight inches square and weigh-
ing abou thirty grammes. The relative (
value of gold to silver was in the be- j
ginning of the Ming Dynasty (A. D.
1375), one to four; under the Emperor (
Wan Li (1394) of the same dynasty, one
to seven; at the end of the Ming Dy- j
nasty (1635), one to ten; under the
Emperor Kung-hsi (1622) of the pres- ;
ent dynasty, one to twelve; under the
Emperor Kien-lung (1737), one to twen-
ty; in the middle of the reign of Toak- .
wane (1840). one to eighteen; at the be- j
ginning of the reign of Hun-fung (1850),
one to fourteen; in 1882, one to sixteen
to eighteen, and at present one to thirty.
Gold not being used in China as money
but as a commodity, its only value is
for hoarding and ornamental purposes,
thus the people can readily comprehend
that gold has advanced nearly one
hundred per cent since 1SS2. One ounce
of silver will buy just as much rice,
corn, cotton, silk or other commodity,
except gold, as ever it would, but gold
Is too high for all but the very richest,
people to indulge in. Precisely the
same conditions, as far as values are .
concerned, prevail in the United State,
our neoole have been bulldozed
into the belief that all values, except I
gold, have gone down, clown, while the j
value of gold remains stationary.
Mr. R. E. Bredon, commissioner of ,
customs, in the Decennial reports of
the custom house, Shanghl, says: "It j

port before me, I am in a position which ;
qualities me to do so. I can only say j
that, in the general opinion, a tael of j
silver buys as much produce as it did j
when it had a sterling value." This, 1 ;
believe, is a fair general statement. An J
intelligent native says that as regards j
prices, a man who has an income of j
one hundred taels a year, can now buy .
a greater quantity of useful articles .
than he could with the same money tec
yeare ago. The American.
The senate Vote for Free Coinage.
On Saturday last the senate placed
Itself on record as being in favor of the
complete restoration of silver to Its
former position in the monetary sys
tem of the United States. By a vote of
42 to 35 it passed the house bond bill
with an amendment providing for the
free coinage of silver at the ratio of
10 to 1. There were twelve pairs an
nounced of which, of course, six were
for silver and six against. So the total
vote of the senate on the question is
4S to 41. There are at least eight other
senators who are decidedly friendly to
saver. Their utterances show them
to be standing on the border line, as It
were, and that their votes are con
trolled by other considerations than
the real merits of the issue. There are
actually not less than fifty-six silver
men in the senate today, and if Wall
street were to change front on the ques
tion, free coinage would have a unani
mous vote. A "dead issue" that in the
face of the most strenuous efforts of a
hostile administration and all the po
tential influences that the "money
power can uring to near, carries me
United States senate by such a major- ,
ity, is, to say the least, a somewhat
anomalous thing. It looks very much
as if the goldites may have to "kill" it
some more. Ex. i

The bold efforts of the gold press to
belittle the Washington convention are
highly indicative of the uneasiness in
the money centers at the rapid growth
of the American bimetallic sentiment
that thrives on business failures sad
