AS BAD AS TREASON.
PAYING OUT GOLD TO RETIRE
"When (Sold at a Premium of 280

The Katllea Chain as a Weapon
It there is a paper in the country that
can be fairly said to be "gold blind,"
It is the Times-Herald. It is so men
tally dazzled by the glitter of Its idol,
gold, that the rules of logic, the prin
ciples of justice, the doctrines of
"aound finance," and even the difference
between truth and falsehood, are all
deemed wholly inconsequential in its
discussion of the silver question.
For example, in its issue of the 12th,
it begins an editorial with the follow
"Assistant Treasurer Conrad J. Jor
dan, of the subtreasury at New York,
should be disciplined by his official
superior. In accordance with law and
practice, a broker named Zimmerman
successfully presented greenbacks at
the subtreasury at New York for gold
with which to buy some of the new
bond issue. That is one of the lawful
functions of the greenback. Under the
existing law the greenback may be pre
sented at the subtreasury for redemp
tion in gold, and when gold is asked as
redemption money the subtreasurer Is
bound to pay it out so long as Uncle
Sam has any gold in his possession."
Then it proceeds to describe how
Zimmerman repeated the transaction,
drawing out gold three times, and de
livering it to his client, who used it in
purchasing bonds, until finally Jordan
refused to let him have any more gold.
For this refusal the Times-Herald, in
a feeble attempt at facetiousness, chides
Mr. Jordan for usurping the preroga
tives of the S7 per cent of the popula
tion of the United States above the age
of ten years, saying: "Such a monetary
system is theirs by choice, and he had
no business to check a picturesque il
lustration of its logic. Its symmetry and
Facetiousness Is all well enough in
Its way, but when it is based upon
downright, premeditated falsehood, one
needs an abnormally developed sense
of humor to fully appreciate it.
The statement that the treasurer is
legally boimd to pay out gold as re
demption money on demand does not
contain even the smallest grain of
truth. There is no law upon the statute
books of the country which makes gold
the exclusive money of redemption.
The treasury department does not
pretend that there is. If there were,
Mr. Jordan could have been manda
mused and compelled to pay it, no mat
ter how many times Zimmerman pre
sented greenbacks for redemption.
The treasury department In paying
out gold exclusively does so, it Is
claimed, in pursuance of the statutory
declaration tiiat it is the established
policy of the United States to main
tain the parity of gold and silver.
This Is merely declaratory of the
purpose of the United States, and It is
as different from a mandate to pay
gold on demand a3 any one thing can
be from another.
When the secretary Is confronted by
that declaration, the question which In
stantly arises Is, "How shall the parity
be maintained?" Of course, he must
act according to his sound discretion
in deciding. Instead of doing so, he
surrenders his "discretion" absolutely
to the creditor, and allows the latter to
say which coin he will take.
Under such circumstances, if gold be
comes in the slightest degree preferable
to silver, the creditor will naturally de
mand gold, and each additional demand
-upon that metal makes the difference
The whole aim of the gold standard
ist has been to break down silver and
boost up gold. In this delectable work
the treasury department has been a
strong ally. Not Secretary Carlisle
alone, but his predecessors. Foster.
Windom and others, have constantly
spoken and acted upon the assumption
that silver is Inferior, debased and de
The creditor has been told, in effect,
that gold is the only "good" money, and
that if he wants gold, he can have it.
In short, the treasury has carried out
the policy of maintaining the parity be
tween gold and silver by keeping the
silver Idle In its vaults.
It 13 claimed, of course, that if gold
had been refused, the silver would have
depreciated. How? Why, they say,
those wanting gold would have to go to
the banks and pay a premium in order
to get it. But conceding that this might
be, it would not constitute a deprecia
tion of silver. It would be merely a
banker's commission for making the
exchange. If the silver maintained its
purchasing power, it would not be "de
preciated" the difference would repre
sent a premium on gold. The goldite
has constantly sought to enforce the
idea that a premium on gold meant ruin
to our finances. And yet we have re
cently seen gold at a premium of VA
per cent in New York, and only a few
days ago it was at a premium of nearly
1V at the Bank of England right in
the charmed circle itself. It does not
appear that this premium had any very
marked effect on the business of either
Middle-aged citizens can remember
when gold stood at 285 measured in
greenbacks. A greenback dollar was
only worth about SG cents in gold or
silver, but the world still moved, the
business of the country went rlght'on,
and the people, as a body, were far more
prosperous than they are now.
After falsely declaring that the law
binds the treasury to pay gold on de
mand, the Times-Herald ironically In
sists that the treasurer shall execute
U in the most extreme sense, in order
that the people, who, it is said, enacted
the law, shall receive a lesson.
The people never having enacted
such a law, and there being no law of
the kind in existence, why the people
should be loaded down with interest
bearing debt, as a punishment so to
speak, is a mystery that probably
nothing but gold standard philosophy
The truth is the law has received an
Interpretation utterly at variance with
its plain meaning. It was intended to
maintain the gold dollar and the silver
dollar upon a plane of absolute equality
a3 "standard money," the only differ
ence being where "otherwise stipulated
In the contract." But there was no
such stipulation in regard to the re
demption of the greenbacks, and in
such cases the two dollars are of ex
actly equal merit.
But the treasury department has so
construed it as to absolutely -create the
gold standard, and the Times-Herald
endorses that construction. Having
done so, it now says, "put on the screws,
Mr. Secretary, and let the people see
the perfect working of the endless
chain; pay out gold to whomsoever de
mands it, issue bonds and load the na
tion down with such a burden of debt
that in an agony of despair the people
will be ready to concede anything that
the money power may demand."
The reader will, of course, under
stand that the editorial upon which we
have been commenting is intended to
show that the greenbacks should be
retired, and the banks allowed to con
trol the currency as their interests
might dictate. H. F. Bartine.
Never Before Wa So Much Progress
Keltic Made as Now.
The Chicago Tribune is great on
mathematics. It can add two spools of
thread together, and upon the data thus
obtained it can tell its readers the ex
act distance to the nearest fixed star.
It is now proving by figures that the
silver movement is losing ground. It
states that in 1S90 141 members of the
House of Representatives voted for free
coinage, while only 97 did so in 1S96.
From this it argues (?) that "the de
lirium" Is being driven southward and
westward, and in a few years will be
dead except in the silver producing
So it is going to be dead in a few
years. Is it? We have a rather dim and
misty idea that during the last year it
has been declared, not once, but ten
thousand times, that it was already
dead. It is encouraging to learn from
eminent authority that it is not ex
actly dead, although, of course, it is
painful to be informed that it is going
to be "dead" in a few years that is
"nearly dead." Even then it is going
to cavort around in the silver mining
states. Well, this certainly relieves
the gloom of the situation some, for as
long as there is life there is hope.
If, however, the Tribune had ex
plained to its readers the process by
which the free coinage sentiment in
the House has been weakened, it would
have been a somewhat interesting, if
not valuable, contribution to the liter
ature of the subject.
The occult influences by which the
repeal of the purchase clause of the
Sherman law was induced, in a con
gress which contained a clear majority
against repeal, if brought Into bold re
lief and lighted up by the torch of
gcniu3 which flames so brightly in the
editorial department of the Tribune,
would make a most brilliant and some
what startling picture.
The manner in which republican free
silver men have been duped by ambig
uous phrases in the party platforms,
and the democratic party broken in two
by the malign power of Cleveland, Car
lisle and "Cabbages" would make an
other picture equally striking, although I
possibly a little repulsive to people
whose moral sensibilities have not been
entirely blunted by the power of pelf.
But there is one little thing that the
Tribune forgot to mention. In 1893-4-5
the silver issue seemed practically dead
in the Senate.
Very recently a' free coinage bill
passed that body by seven majority,
with eight more standing on the ".rag
The fact is that the silver men are
now in the position of Paul Jones when
asked by the commander of the Serapis
if he had surrendered. His immortal
reply was that he had "just begun to

A. Literal Portraiture From the De
scription of u Popular Xovt-I.
As many readers of fiction have had
cause to complain, authors and artists
often work at cross purposes, and the
novelist's eloquent conception of the
heroine's personal attributes is but
faintly shadowed forth in the artist's
lines. To show how a heroine of ro
mantic fiction actually looks, our es
teemed contemporary, the Pathfinder,
handed to a realistic artist a chapter
from a popular novel with instruction?
to make a literal portrait of the hero
ine. Here are the eloquent words of the
author from which the faithful por
trait was drawn:
"Belinda was the fairest of earth's
daughters. Her shapely head was
molded in the form of a perfect oval,
poised gracefully on a swan-like neck.
Her delicate shell like ears looked
fragile as tho thinnest porcelain. Over
her alabaster forehead rested an au
reole of golden locks that fell in a
shower all a down her temples. Her
brows were perfect arches and under
neath them, like windows to her soul,
shone eyes the brightest love e'er
looked upon, a pair of stars gleaming
forth resplendent. Her nose was her
only commonplace feature slightly re
trousse, but redeemed a hundred times
by the roses of her cheeks. Her chin
was a dimpled peach; her lips, like
twin cherries, opened to reveal a row
of teeth that had the semblance of a
string of milk-white pearls. What
wonder, then, that with these varied
charms of face, she should have had
the easy, confident gait of one that
knew the irresistible power of her own
If artists generally were more lit
eral, perhaps authors would be less
free in their use of fanciful metaphors.
Electricity nnd Hypnot Imn.
That the mind can so influence the
body as to produce organic changes is
well illustrated by a case detailed by
Tuko, where a woman saw a heavy
wci.iht falling and crushing a child's
liand. Sb' fainted, and when restored
to consciou ness was found to liave an
injury on her own hand similarly lo
cated to that sustained by the child.
Not only was there a wound, but it
went through the various stages of
suppuration and healed by granulation.
Other well attested proofs of this pow
er of tho mind over the lody are af
forded in the fact that a blister can be
raised by mental suggestion, and that

more than anything else, appeals to
the imagination of the patient, and
very often the effects obtained by an
electric application are purely psycho
logical. It has frequently luippened to
him that, through a failure to properly
connect his circuits, or some other
slight mischance, the supply of cur
rent was cut off; and yet his patient
would exhibit all the symptoms here
tofore experienced when really re
ceiving large quantities. Dr. Robert
son has frequently, at a word of sug
gestion, caused the suggestion of burn
ing at the electrode to be felt, the limb
to contract or relax, and many other
phenomena to assert themselves which
were usually associated with the ap
plication of electric current. Another

A Novel l'lot Anticipated.
Turning back to old London books
and plays to verify the titles of "True
Blue" and "The Tost Captain," I
have unearthed tho fact that the plot
of "East Lynne" has existed on the
English stage for nearly sixty years.
The strong incident of the 'Tost Cap
tain" is that of a wife leaving her hus
band, who lights a duel with the man
who ruined her, and, from the effects
of the duel, loses his sight. In the
third act the wife returns to her home,
and Is engaged as governess to look
after her own children and husband,
and dies penitent and forgiven. Here
we have "East Lynne" as ytt1 as
"Miss Multon," and the dates
back to 1836. London TeWgraph.
The Origin tf "Peach."
I Few people are aware that the term
"peach," as appieu m "
than ordinary attractiveness, and con
sidered atrocious slang- by the ultra
cultured class, can trace its ancestry
back to a poem of perhaps America's
most famous poet He was writing
about Philadelphia, and the line in
question would seem to indicate that in
his judgment Philadelphia's girls were
all "peaches." At any rate, such a
meaning can be extracted without the
slightest assistance of the imagination.
Henry W. Longfellow is the poet in
question, and the line occurs in his cel
ebrated poem Evangeline.' In the
opening lines of the fifth stanza of I art
Second the poet says:
In that deli-htful land which is washed by
the Delaware's waters. nf
Guarding in sylvan shades the name oi

Stands on the banks of its beautiful stream
the city he founded: , .
There all tho air is balm, and the peach is
the emblem of beauty. T,i
English a She la Spoke.
The darkey is fond of long words.
The meaning doesn't matter, so the
words are long, as this absolutely true
story will testify:
On the M 's plantation in Missis
sippi lives an old "before the war"
darky, too old to do any work harder
than throwing feed to the poultry. She
has known no other home and is a char
acter. Visitors to the plantation al
ways go to her cabin, and to their ques
tion, "How are you this morning. Aunt
Chris?" never failing to receive the fol
lowing reply, "Well, honey. I'm kinder

The whole teaching of his life, in

his life is voluntary brotherhood, fra
ternity. If you will do something for
another, if you will help him or serve
him, you will at once l-egin to love
him. I know there are some casuists
who distinguish here, and say that you
may love such an one, and that, in
fact j'ou must love every one, and if
you are good you will love every one;
but that you are not expected to like
every one. This, however, seems to be
a distinction without a difference. If
you do not like a person you do not
love him, and if you do not love him
you loathe him. The curious thing in
doing kindness is that it makes you
love people evec in this sublimated
sense of liking. When you love an
other you have made him your brother;
and by the same means you can be a
brother to all men. W. I). Howells, in
