The market price of silver at this
time is about 3'i to 1, that is, it re'
quires about 32 pounds of silyer to
purchase one pound of gold. Tbe
standard of value in this'country is
gold, that is, 5J5.8 grains of standard
gold, exchanging m the market for
825 grainTef standard silver, or for
the silver in tiro silver dollars. Now
suppose that the standard is changed
bo that 412.5 grains oi standard
silver shall be the standard of
value. The first thing that would
be noticed would be tho failure of
cold to be presented a, the mint for
coinage. No one would be willing
to haye his gold coined into dollars,
.- if the gold to make a dollar would
purchase silver enough to make two
coined dollars. If a pound of gold
would purchase thirty-two pounds
of silver, no one would be willing
to have it coined on the basia of 16
ponndgyf silver to one pound of
gold. 5'here would be no gold com-"
ed, except for export. The next
thing that would be observed would
be the disappearance of gold from
circulation. If the go d that is put
in a dollar should bj suddenly made
eqnal in value to the silyer put into
two silver dollars, all the gold coins
would be hoarded or thrown into the
melting pot, for conversion into
bullion with whio:i to pui chase the
cheaper siivtr. 1 a dealer had $5,
000 in gold, and they would pur
chase 10,000 in silyer, he would
melt his $5,000 in gold, if it neel be
done, and sell the bullion for $10,
0:0 in silver. In that way gold
would go out of circulation as
money to become a commodity, to
be bought and sold lite other comb
moditiea. That is not all, after the
master, at home had been exhausted
foreign markets would be visited,
and geld exchanged for silver, Our
country would btcome the dumping
ground for all the silver in the
world, if we mwhi the price if sil
ver here Higher than it is elsewhere.
We have about $600,000,000 of gold
in circulation, it would require only
$300,000,000, or one half of it, to
pay for silver enough to replace it
with an equal number of silver dot
lars, if it were withdrawn from cal
culation, leavinj a balance in the
hands of the owners of gold of
$300,000,000, with which to pur
chase another $600,000,000 of Silver.
The result would happen that we
would have the silyer and other
countries the gold,
: We are told, sometimes. -that law
makes money, and that if e wuulu
adopt the silver standaru that the
price of silver would go up at once
on a parity with the price of gold
Let's see. There are in the world
about 4,000,000,000 silver dollars,
worth two billion dollars iu gold.
Would our passing a la , making
the ratio 16 to 1, have the tffect of
adding $2,000,000,000 to the vilue
of the ailyer in circulation in the
world? Would a simple act of this
government have the eftem of dcub
ling the value of all the silyer in
the world? If Dot, would not the
standard be forced down, and on the
principle explained above would not
all the gold go out and keep ut of
circulation ? The affairs of the worlc
are conducted on buairess pnuciples,
and not on ihe theories too of en ad
voca ed by honest but misguid-d en
thusiasts. The peculiarity connected wi l.
the withdrawal or gold from circu
lation would be its sudJeniees. 1:
would not r quire one mouth to do
tht work, whilst to replace it with
silver dollars, dollar for dollar at
the rate of $50,000 000 per year, that
being the capacity of the mint,would
require twelve years. To withdraw
the gold would mean a contraction
of the currency to the amount of
$600,000;000. Such a contraction
suddenly made, as it naturally woulJ
be, would produce tbe g;eatest
scarcity of money ever felt by oui
people, -nd w uld send prices far
below the lowest poiut they have
eyer reached in tnis country. I'
would bankrupt i vtry inn who was
in debt, and put such a complete
check to all improvements, that ever
those who might not be in deb'
would be heavily pressed.
We cannot shut our eye3 to th
teaching of h s'cry, and hope to es
cape the penalties for the violation
jo an ecoaomic law. Uuder the
erroneous idsa that money cau be
made by law regardless of the de
manda of trade and commerce, we
may enact laws d' signed to cooipei
the higher economic law to yield to
tie fancies of men who may bejai
pelled by false no-ions in. regard to
what constitutes and makes money,
but, if we do, we will -pay a heavy
penalty for our folly, . The sooner
we recognize the fact that .the

Tne section on police and munici
pal corparatiou was amended on mo
tion of Mr- Patton, of Richland;
after a sharp fight, sd that for uye
successive years from . the time of
their establishment, municipal cor
porations can exempt all manufact
uring establishments from 'taxation.
Last night when section 31 of the
legislative article reading "the mar
riage of a white person with a negro
or muia'to or person who shall have
any negro blood, shall bo uslawful
and void," was called up, Delegate
Robert Small presented a sensational
amendment to add these words ,
And that any white person who
Lyes and cohabitea with a negro or
mulatto, or person who shall have
one-eighth or more of negro blood,
shall be disqualified from holding
any office of emolument or trust in
this State, and the offspring of
co-h tbitation shall bare the name
of the father, and shall be entitled
to inherit and acquire property the
same as it they were legitmate,"
After an all day battle this
amendment was killed aad 'the
original section was adopted, with
this amendment by Senator Tillmm :
"And the parties to su'h marriages
shall be punished as the General As
sembly may prescribe."
The only important action of the
convention tonight was agreeing to a
resolution offered by Senator Till
man, that when the convention ad-

until noon ou Tuesday, October 12,

recess were that a number of the
members were sick; a number of
lawyers would absent themselyes
for salesday whether they were ex
ciis?d or not and that the business
of many farmers at this particular
ime demanded their preaence'Jat
home. The convention devoted the
remainder . cf the nL'ht Bession to
heaiing arguments for and against

Some bits of news have come to
town from the Bection of the Reed
Mine in Southeastern Cabarrus.
Years ago a 28 pound piece of
gold was found . It is here, too,
that last week in working round in
an c'.d 6hiift that a lady's watch
chain, fob and a pieco of gold that,
resembled a gold tooth, together
with small bits of hair, were foupd.
This discovery and find have giyen
the. neighborhood somethin? to
talk.about. A matter like this will
not aown witnout an ertort to ex
plain, solve, clear up or unravel.
Several parties from that section
have been asked about the discovery
and all state that a fob, a lady's
chain, a gold tooth and some bits of
hair were found in an old shaft
which Dr. Lisle, the macager of the
Iwcd Mine was having cleaned out
preparatory to sinking deeper.
Ic is said th.it the dirt in that
shaft has been stirred within the
last ten years, and this only aggra
vates those, who desire a clearing
up, to search all the more.
Some people think all these things
are evidences of a murder or suicide
that must haye occurred some time
or other. How did the foo get
theie ? How did the lady's chain get
there.'' How did the tooth get
there ? and to whom did they belong,
