Monometallists argue that in case of re
monilization of silver the mine owners would
gain 50 cents on the dollar. If this be true
it is a dollar worth 100 cents and hence not
cheaj) money. If it is not true he has gained
nothing, the objection is not valid.
Monometallists do not tell us whac they
mean by sound money and an honest dollar,
nor do they enunciate that policy. Bi-met-al
lists tell exactly what they mean and pro
pose to do.
The fall in the price of silver is due to
hostile legislation. It was demonetized in
the United States without the people know
ing it. Blaine, Beck of Kentucky, and
others admited they did not know at the
time that the act of ltS73 demonetized silver.
The people were using paper money and the
act of 1873 did not attract thoir attention.
That act robbed society of all it can ever re
place to them by remonctization.
There is no hopo for international agree
ment. The United States is a debtor nation.
The great nations of Europe are creditors.
We are the losers and they the gainers.
Can we expect them to help cut off their
own profit? We will lose less by "going it"
alone than by waiting for their consent.
In all the pages of history for fi,000 years
we find no evidence of a nation suffering
from too much money. If we adopt bi
metallism other nations must follow. New
York will become the great business centre
of tlio world, instead of London, and pros
perity will reign again.
LOCAL FIELD DAY
Local Field Day this year is going to be
(he best athletic meeting our school has
witnessed for some time. The program of
events is long and varied; everyone who
excels in any one of the manly sports will
have an opportunity to display his powers.
Mr. Cameron, the manager of the sports,
says that twice or three times as many stu
dents have entered as there were last year,
and, instead of the dissatisfaction exhibited
at our last annual field day all of the con
testants are highly satisfied with the arrange
ments. Two of the bicycle racers are already on
the track every morning before six, working
out the kinks in their limbs. Their steam
is now at a great pressure but will be fifty
pounds stronger ere they come together on

A PRACTICE GAME.
The practice game between the 'Varsity
boys and a nondescript aggregation sup
posedly from the Western Normal occurred
last Saturday. It was played on the campus
and had a large number of spectators.
Ileald's Husky Howlers showed up in
great shape with their new suits. When
they swung their bats over the board plank
which served as a home plftte the angular
young gentleman who twisted the sphere
fremblnd. For a Urno it scorned as though
the University boys wouldn't give "em a
score, but they repented of their purpose
and allowed their guests several, and then
their guests took some of their own accord.
The score stood 10 to 14 when the dust
had cleared away.
FYiol and King give promise of making a
good battery. N
Ilollingsworth did the umpiring.
