have been falling ever since."
If the above be true, then do we
not want free coinage, for it is an un
disputed fact, that since 1873 more
than 500,000,000 silver dollars have
been coined, whereas from the foun
dation of the government to 1S73,
only a little more than 8,000,000
were coined. If then, as above stated ,
the act of 1873, which increased the
coinage of silver 400 per cent, per

TUK SAME OLD SJTOKY.
The Asheville Register is evidently
edited by a man who loves a joke.
He gets oil some right spicy "tele
graphic" notes in last week's paper,
but in his editorial he is wofully
weak. In speaking ol the tariff he
calls attention to the importation of
$12,000,000 worth of woolen xds
during January and February of this
year, and says:
"This is an increase in the one item
of woolen goods alone of over $
000,000 as compared to the same
months cf last year, and at the same
ratio would mean the sending abroad
ot over $50,000,000 more of our gold
for wroolen goods alone by the end of
the year, than we did last year. It
also means $50,000,000 less to go
into the hands of the operatives and
owners of woolen mills in this country,
and in all probability the final extinct
ion of our woolen industries, if this
tarifi schedule is not changed by a
patriotic Republican Congress.
The same old McKinley cry

IL'STICE DOING ITS WORK.
The carpet-baggers in Hawaii ap
pear to be having rather rough sled
ding. The government which they
established through and by villainy is
tottering to its fall. It js not otten
that Justice is as swift-footed as it
promises to be in this case. Thi
whole Hawaua transaction is a blot
upon Anglo Saxon civilization. A
lot of Americans, Englishmen and
other whites carpet-bagged to Ha
waii, squatted, went into business,
enjoyed the protection of its "laws,
and prospered. They joined unto
themselves other white men who had
been born in Hawaii, missionaries
sons and others, nobody in the whole
outfit acknowledging allegiance to
the power which protected them, but
claiming citizenship in the countries
from which they or their fathers had
come. They always held themselves
in position to squeal to home govern
ments if things did not go their way.
by fieeang the ignorant natives, and
otherwise, they accumulated property,
and having, like the gentleman in the
Old Testament, (whose name begins
with a J, but which we cannot at
this moment recall.) waxed fat, they
followed his example still further and
kicked. By connivance with the
American minister to Hawaii (one
Stevens, whom God has since taken),
they brought the terrors of an Ameri
can rian-of-war, lying in the harbor
of Honolulu, to bear upon a weak
government, out one wliicn was at
peace with the United States "and
the rest of mankind," and seized the
government under which they had
been living by sufferance, and which
had protected them in their lives and
property. The Queen and her prin
cipal supporters were made prisoners,
a government by, of and for carpet
baggers was set up, with one Dole
at its head and a republic was pro
claimed. But they have not been
permitted to enjoy their stolen goods
in peace The island is honey combed
with conspiracies, and the insurgent
party is growing and has become
formidable. Ex-Minister Thurston
a son of a missionary having
been shipped back to Hawaii from
this country, to which he had ceased
to bo an agreeable representative,
sees the lay of the land as soon as he
gets there and advises the abdication
of the rump government and the res
toration of the monarchy, with the
niece ot Mrs. Dominis as Queen.
Mr. Thurston evidently advises this
peaceable surrended as a precaution
ary measure. Mr. Dole and others
of that kidney he doubtless sees are
in imminent danger not only of be-'
ing deposed but of having their heads
chopped off into the bargain and he
would make terms for them while '
times are good.
Nemesis is on the track of the '
thieves and they are likely to be run
down pretty soon. This Hawaiian j
aflair, by the way, is another one i
about which the old man Cleveland
was dead right from the beginning.
AN IIOSIXT IOLLAIt.
Our Gold Bug friend sends us the
following in answer to the vigorous
assault ot our correspondent "S":
"I wrote you that you would
never see the free coinage of silver

ing classes, viz.:
The people who have money lent

The people who owe money,
The people who own land.
If, as is claimed by the friends of
silver, the people who are in debt
can carry an election then perhaps
we may have the free coinage of sil
ver or any other scheme to reduce in
debtedness, because the average man
is generally to be counted upon to
vote where his interests lie-but the
four classes named above are likely
to overbalance at the polls the one
class of debtors.
I wrote that the democrats of North

wants dishonest money." As the
discussion progresses and full light
is turned upon the subject it becomes
more apparent that the free and un
limited coinage of silver at a ratio of
16 to 1 is dishonest money. The
prejudice in this State in favor of sil

to this because the silverites boast
that they can carry the question with

best they can hope for is that the
classes arrayed by prejudice for nd
against the free coinage of silver are
equally balanced. In that case the
appeal lies to the patriotic men of our
country who will vote for what they
think right regardless of what inter
estsare affected. To this class the
advocates of sound and honest money
appeal with great confidence.
It is not a question of gold or o
silver. It is a question of sound

a sound money man and have no ob

Lyman J. Gage has publicly de
clared that he was never present at
any so-called lectures, as is asserted
in Coin's book (pages 25-3S). His
presence there being only a deceit, it
may not be amiss to suppose that the
argument used by Coin was entirely
mythical. Coin laid down the prop
osition that "the commercial value
of any commodity depends on supply
and demand." Then follows the most
extraordinary statement to explain
the demand for money:
"When the mints of the world are
thrown open and the government
says, "We will take all the gold and
silver that comes," an unlimited de
mand is established. The supply is
limited. Now, with an unlimited de
mand and a limited supply, there is
nothing to stop the commercial value
of the two metals going up in the
market, except the government say
ing "Hold on these metals are for
money we fix the value at which
they circulate." (p. 27).
Of couree, to believe this state
ment one must be absolutely ignorant
of what a mint does, and the relation
of any government to its coinage.
A mint does not buy gold and silver
to turn into coin. But what is per
fectly simple is that opening the mints
to free coinage does not furnish un
limited demand for gold and silver;
it only furnishes a limited demand
for one or the other of the two metals,
whichever "is cheaper as compared
with the legal ratio. To coin money
does not make a demand for its use
it only changes its form, or, so to
speak, does it up in a package for
convenient use. Take, for illustra
tion, the case of wheat and flour.
Wheat, being the material out of
which ilour is made, to merely grind
wheat into tlour does not constitute
the demand for flour. Four is only
the form into which wheat put in orde
to be best marketed and reach the
person who will use it. So with gold
or silver. They are the materials
out of which coins are manufactured
coins does not create any new demand
r lR-!i1. except that arising from the
convenience of not weighing and
assaying the purchase. It is then an
too to say, as
"Coin" said above; "The governments
say, "We will tike all the silver and
gold that comes." Such nonsense is
of a piece with the fiction that Mr.
Gage was present. Both are utter
The curious application of "Coin's"
absurdity to the act of 1S73 is that,
under free coinage of both gold and
silver at 16 to 1 before 1S73. "an un
limited demand was established" for
both goid and silver. The truth was
th.it fioin 1840 to 1873 there was no
demand for silver dollars in the circu
lation whatever, and the demand for
s:lver from 1853 to 1873, was mainly
for subsidiary coins. "Coin" so fre
quently turns to the experience of
our country prior to 1873 that it will
be opportune to put on record here
the facts as to the amounts of gold and
silver respectively coined at our mints
during this time.
That is, from the foundation of the
United States to 1873 only $8,031,
238 silver dollar pieces were ever
coined. Why? Because the market
and legal ratios could not be main
tained ahkc lor any length of time.
Now, if silver was the only unit since
1792, whdid we get on with only
$8,031,238, doing the business of a
great country for eighty years? If
gold was not also a unit, why did we
coin Si, 010,900,3 14? What was the

The speech of Secretary oi the
Treasury Carlisle at Covington, Ky.,
Monday on the financial question is
a dispassionate ami very strong pre
sentation of the claims of the sound
money men. He clearly shows that
the recent panic was a world-wide,
not merely a local, monetary distur
bance; he incidentally, by his com
parisons, makes a good showing for
President Cleveland's administration,
as against the one ot President Har
rison; he outlines the history of gold
and silver coinage since the beginning
of our government; he exposed many
false statements regarding the de
monetization ot snvcr in 1073; he de
fends his own record on the silver
coinage question, which has been re
cently attacked; and shows that the
inauguration of the free coinage of
silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 will put
tne country on a oasis of silver mono
metallism. drivfoi't t'" ;"v,iujB;j
prices 01 tne necessaries ot uie to
the farmer, even if it does increase the
price of his products, and, finally,
bring about a worse derangement of
government credit and of the business
of the country than has ever bel.i e
been known. Secretary Carlisle looks
at this complicated question from an
elevated point of view, as it were,
where he has a w ide sweep of vision,
and his arguments for a sound money
are laid down with a force which
should be, and doubtless will be, frit
in the present agitation of the financial
question. Charlotte Observer.
