garding the honesty of hi Intention to

"Tbe editorial in question," aaid Allen,
"wholly misrepresent roe, and 1 desire

which tbe city council might elect. 11

public building and will o inform me, I

Whjr the Jlank Felted,
All who know Mr. William M, Slngorly
of the Philadelphia Record, will regret
tb misfortune that bo overtaken him
and will sympathize with him in hi
business troubles. ,
While this I true, and while our own
sympathy goe out to him very trongly,
we cannot fail to remember that tbe ed
itor of tbe Hecord ba been a most vlo-
mit promoter of the gold standard. W
have no doubt that be I slocwre in hi
belief. This is demonstrated by the fact
that he deliberately preached in favor
of the gold standard, and at the same
time tried to carry on a productive In
dustry under It operation. 11 wa
president of a bank, and at the same
' . , J 111
lime owner 01 a papwr ana uuiu huh,
The securities of this mill, which were
gilt edged when he negotiated them, be
came a part of tbe asset of hi bank:
but under tb operation of tbe gold
tandard, money kept on growing
"sounder" than the products 01 hi mm.
At first tbe paper made by the mill could
be aold for io cent a pound, but th
price ba fallen to les than 1 cent.
Money has grown o much sounder than
tbe product of tbe mill that the latter
will not command one-ulth a much of
tbe former as it did when tbe securities
were taken up by the bank.
Naturally the depreciation of tbe pro
duct was followed by a depredation of
the securities, so that tbe bank, by
hitching it fortune to productive In
rinstrv has been drained down. It I a
grievous misfortune, but it Is only one of
tbe myriad object lesson wnicn ine ap
nrBciation of money under the gold
Htandard ha given the public ad oppor
tunity totudy, '
The day before the bank of which Mr.
Sinirerly was president, failed tbe Record
said editorially:
"Currency tn the united state is so
abundant that it cannot be loaned to
advantage. We are actually loaning the
gold balances due us on tbe sales ol ex
ported stuffs to European borrowers,
instead of bringing the gold to tbe Uni ted
State, because money brings a higher
rate of interest in Lotidan, Pari and
JJurlin than In ?ew Xork. Our paper
notes thus serve to keep gold out of tbi
eountrv. Another siirnlflcant proof of
the redundancy of our currency is the
rapid retirement of national bank notes.
Tbe voluntary retirement for the first
twenty day of fcmber have reached
tbe enm of 3.000.000. So largo an
amount has not been retired in any one
month during the last ten years,"
No man who believe in th gold etan
dard and has any knowletre ol the cer
tain result it I. sure to bring about will
permit bimsulf to be financially con
nected with any ordinary productive In
dustrv. That Kditor Sinnrly was both
sinw-re In his belief in the gold standard
and iirnoraut of it. eftvete, Is shown by
ths fact that ho ha. iiermitted hi. pulp
and naor mill to drag down a financial
institution that was otherwise In perfect
