WHY SIXTEEN TOOSIT
A Maryland correspondent asks

N 16 to 1, rather than any other ratio ?
What is the magic in these par
ticular numbers? How do they
come abont ?
They came about simply by an
- eff)rt to estimate the relative value
y v. cf silver and gold. For many years
the production of neither metal in-
' tyTM& in PTffHsivn nrnnnfinn hp
yond the other, and yet the ratio
never was really stationary. Dur
ing the middle half of the century,
though it did not vary more than
42-100ths on either side of 15,
even that varation kept the various
governments constantly tinkering
at the weight of their coins in the
vain effort to keep the two metals
together. Nevertheless, something
ween 15 and 16 parts of silver to
one of gold did represent approxi
mately their relative value in ' the
markets of the world during that
pericd. The figures neyer had any
Granting that. it were now desir
able to go back to a system that the
world has voluntarily abandoned as
imprucuuauie, uiuiuiuu ecune, no wcu

f which appeal is made, clearly sug

coins correspond in value, and if
their tons are to re same the experi

When our mint was es abliBhed
there was no silver produced in the
united States. Now ' we produce
abont five million pounds every year,
and the old figures are no longer
applicable. The actual ratio at
present is just about 32 to 1 and if
tlje bimetallists really belieye in bi

ihey would wish to haye silver coin

Several years ago Concord or
ganized a Chamber of Commerce
and it promised to do good service,
but by and by no quorum could be
secured and the Commerce expired,

In Savigny's article, "Money," on

we desire, in justice to the author,
that our readers will bear in mind
when reading the article.
The laBt word in the 4th line
read "Bhall" instead of "should."
In the 3rd from last paragraph
beginning with ""the people must

THE DUTY OF DEMOCRATS.
Editor Scott, of the Lenior Topic,

of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, but
"I am a party man and am will

Winston, June 17. It is not the
writer's intention to bring before the
pubic the matter of Kittelle and the
ice, but in justice to all parties con
cerned and to the reputation of the
hotel, it is best to give all the facts
in the case.
.The trouble all arose in this wise!
The ice was in a large tub, covered
over with a bheet, under the cooling
boards on which the corpse wes ly
ing. It was removed by a. porter,
under the instruction of Mr. Kitt
elle, from the tub, washed off, placed
in the refrigerator, from which it
was afterwards taken for the tea and
water in tbe dining room. The ice
was not in contact with the body at
Kittelle when first confronted
with the charge by the stockholders
denied it emphatically.
The directors then called the
porter and he was asked in. the pres
ence of Mr. Kittelle if he had been
told to take the ice from tbe tub
and put it in the refrigerator and if
he followed his instructions. To
both questions the negro answered
in tbe affirmative. The porttr was
corroborated by a chambermaid.
As soon as this became known the
guests began preparations for moy
ing. me next morning iney int
almost in a body, but returned when
assured by the management that
Kittelle would haye nothing more to
do with the culinary department,!
The hotel is closed for the present

eaa be found. The bailding is
very fine one, well located, and
handsomely furnished throughout
It is comparatively new.
A Drunken "Billy Goal.
Monday night a man returned
from Salisbury, bringing with bim
a two-gallou jug of corn juice. He
carried 1' m a sack. Afier arriving
up town, he decided that it would
not be healthy or wise for htm
take said booze home with bim, so
he secreted it away in the bed of an
old hack that stands on the porch of
Mr. W C Boyd's carriage shop,
where he intended leaving it until
an opportunity to slip it into his
home. But Tuesday afternoon,
black William goat belonging to Mr
John Cms?, the assistant express
man, discovered the elegant stuff
aud began pulling and jerking the
sack until the jug broke. The
whiskey was soon absorbed ia the
sack, and the William gout con
tinued to chew until it got parlvzod
drunk, and iu this state of in toxica
tion the goat furnished no iittl
amount of exciting fun for citizens
in that part of the city. The antics
of a Billy goat are amusing at a
times, but this peculiar circumstance
is yet unequalled.

the duty of every one to assist them
upon this occasion. The band needs
