ISO. 11.
The reader who has examined the
last two communications is no doubt
ready to admit that whatever the
standard of value, the value of the
money unit, may be, it is of the
gre&gtjm porta nee that it shall be
as nearly invariable as tne nature 01
things will permit. Let it be sup
posed, however, that it is desirable
to have two standards, or the double
standard as it is commonly called;
and that the aim Bhall be to hare
them established on absolute equal
ity. How shall the equality be es
tablished ? The first notion of equal
ity that presents itself is that the
two metals, say, shall have equal
recognition at the mint, that each
shall have the same time gfren
for coinage, tbst each Bhall be ocined
into the same denominations, that
there Bhall be as many one dollar
piecesjT'two dollar pieces, fiye dollar
pieces, ten dollar pieces, twenty dol-.
lar pieces,' coined of the one as of the
other. This would put each on
equal terms in the mint provided the
expense of handling the one was no
greater than the expense attending
the handling of the other. If the
expense incident to handling the
one were greater than that to hand
ling the other, the difference could
be adiusted so as to put the two
metals on equality in the matter of
The next step towards Be-
carine perfect equality would be
to repeal all legal tender laws, re
quiring all contracts to name tbe
kind of payment to be made, and if
money is to be paid, on the basis of
which standard payment shall be
made. If the two metals were gold
apidjeilver. all notes wou'd be drawn
payable in either gold or silver coins
respectively or their equivalents.
Stores would r-ave notices put up in
each house Btating on what basis all
sales would be made, and by what
standard all aconnta would be set
tled. Coat me ors, mechanics, day
laborers, clerks etc. would havc
special agreement in each case as to
the basis on which payment was to
be made to tbem. In the absence
of special agreement as to the basis
of payment the law mighty require
that the mean or average of the two
standards be taken as the basis for
settlement. In this way the two
metals would be given equal chances
before the people. The parties to a
contract would t hen say what tbe
payment shonld be and their prefer
ences wonld be indicated in tbe con
tract There would be rio nec s i

gays so, but the law is enacted to

Two Democrats Answer Bond Questions.
.The Rileigh News and Observer
aniwers as follows:
In a recent issue of the Concord
Standard, there appea-ed an edi
torial relating to the issuing of bonds
' to maintain the gold reserye, and this
question was asked:
Does the editor of the Raleigh
News and Observer believe, if the
views and principles (those he es
pouses relative to the solution and
correction of the financial troubles)
become laws in their fullest aud
completest meaning and scope, that
the government officials would not
be compelled to again issue bonds to
protect the reserve fund or to main
tain the credit of the United States
or to make its promises to the peo
ple good ?
1. There is no statute requiring
the maintenance of a gold reserve.
When, as Secretary of the Treasury,
Mr. Sherman began the line of policy
looking to a perpetuation ot the
gold standard, he put aside one hun-
dred million dollars in gold which
he called "the gold reserye." Though
the amount of Treasury notes in ex
istence had been much larger than
at that time, no gold reserve had
ever before been deemed necessary,
and none had been necessary.
2. There being no law for the
"gold reserve," there is likewise no
law that requires the sale of bonds
to keep up the reserve. In the last
Congress the J udiciary Committee of
the Honse of Representatives pre
pared an able paper in eurport of
the position that the Secretary of
the Treasury had no legal right to
iseue bonds. The bonds are issued
under the old resumption act of 1S75,
and by a strained construction of
that Act.
The obligations of tbe govern
ment are all payable in coin at the
option of tbe government. As loDg
as we pay our debts according to the
written letter of the contract it can
not be justly said that we are not
preserving the faith and credit of
the goyernment. -
4. The government has made "no
promise to the people" except its
bonds and its various notes, and
none of them, except the gold notes,
are payable in gold. The coin five
dollar notes contain this contract oa
their face : "The United States of
America will pay to bearer fiye dollars
in coin, lhe silver certificates cone.
tain this stipulation : ''This certi
fies that there has been deposited in
the Treasury of the United States
five silver dollars payable to bearer."
The Treasury notes, "greenbacks,"
have this promise: "The United
States will pay the bearer five dol
lars." The bonds of the govern
ment are payable in any kind of
It is therefore seen that there is
no obligation of the government
payable in gold ; no authority of law
for a gold reserve ; no clear legal
warrant to issue bonds ; and no
need to do any of these thiDgs to
preserve the contracts and credit of
the government. The bonds having
been issued to preserve the gold
standard, the necessity of further
issue is done away with when debts
and notes are paid according to con
tract, and not according to the seK
fish demand of the creditor.
The Charlotte Observer thus
answers :
The editor of the Concord Stand
ard has recently had an interview
with a s indent of finances and affairs
who, in reply to questions, gaye him
what we conceive to be an accurate
statement of one of the influences
wrought upon tbe Treasury by the
presence in onr currency system of a
large amount of grreenback , Trias
ury and Sherman notes. Briefly,
the statement is that one . wanting
gold may gather up this paper cur
rency, carry it to tbe Treasury and
have it redeemed in gold. The notes
are not then destroyed but are paid
out again in the regular course , of
business and may be again gathered
up and used to draw gold out of the
Treasury. This process may go on
indefinitely and thns these paper re
presentatives of -money have been
often and aptly described as an end
less chain. In view of this situation
The Standard courteously pro
pounds a question the same in
terms to the editor of the Charlotte
Observer and tbe Rle?b News and
Observer, and aeRs for a clear fall
- Does the editor of the Charlotte
1 1 Observer believe, if the views and
principles (those he spouses relative
to : tbe solution and correction of
financial troubles) become laws
iu their fullest and completest
meaning - and scope, that the
the government officials would not
be con pel led to again issue bonds
to protect the reserve fund or to
maintain the credit of the United
States or to make its promises to the
people good ?
To be clear, we answer, yea. To
be full, we must needs explain. In
our judgement the run upon the
the Treasury gold has been largely
due to the agitation for free silver. We
are a creditor nation. Our foreign
creditors, noting the rise of the silver
tide, have, many of them, sent their
securities here for sale while yet they
could get for them the same quality
of money that they paid for them
gold. They have feared that the
United States are coming to a silver
basis and know that in that event
they would be paid off in a depre
ciated currency. Again, the balance
of trade has for Borne time been
against us and these balances, pay.
able in gold, have helped to weaken
the Treasury reserve and necessitate
issue of bonds. Yet again, as
pointed out by ex-Comptroler Hep
burn in his article in the Forum for
August, the operations of the Mci
Kinly tariff act were such that a
bond issue became necessary not
alone to strengthen the gold reserye
but to afford cash with which tbe
government might pay off its
rent obligations.
We have dealt thus far with
causes. Causes other than those re'
cited might arise to produce the
eavne results. So long as the paper
.currency referred to is outstanding
fit: m a triflnano n ha onlr? yoaafva
and as far back as 1876 the national
Demorcatic party in convention de-
manded that these obligations should
be discharged. As early as possible
they shonld be redeemed and de
stroyed and the goyernment go out
of the banking business, confining
itself to its legitimate functians.
The notes thus redeemed should be
replaced by another currenay as
for instance State bank notes, as has
often been suggested, issued under
such supervision as would gnarantee
their character in order that there
may be no contraction of the cur
rency. In this explanation we have sought
to be candid and explicit. We do
not belieye that as things are now
the Treasury is entirely exempt
from the danger of raids with the
accompanying Lecessity for further
issues of gold bonds; but this danger
would decrease with the subsidence
of the free silvei agitation, with the
full restoration of confidence in the
equal yalue of all our money, and
with the adjustment of business,
now in rapid progress, to the new
tariff law.

suddenly and very mysteriously dis
appeared from mortal ken. It was
whispered about that be had been
murdered and his body cast into the
Catawba river. Not long before
that he had trouble with his wife.
In fact he shot her in the breast and
attempted to shoot himself. He was
before the Superior Court Judge at
Newton on the charg6 when he told
the judge in open court that he had
intended to also kill himself, but that
the pistol would not go off and there
were only three loads iu it anyway,
He created quite a scene in court.
It was something about his child,
which he wanted to take from the
mother. He told the jadge he would
have the child if it was the last act
of his life, or that he would die in
the attempt. He got the child and
went away, but was induced to re
turn to his wife again. It was not
long before he disappeared. In
course of time the widow married.
She did not live very happily in her
second alliance. Not long ago hei

For Over Thirty Years!
"Ayer's Cathartic Pills for over thirty
years have kept me in good health,
ever having had a sick day in all that
time. Before I was twenty I suffered
almost continually as a result of con
Btipation frcm dyspepsia, headaches,
neuralgia, 'or boils and other eruptive
diseases. When I became convinced
that nine-tenths of my troubles were
caused by constipation, I began the use
of Ayer's Pills, with the most satisfac
tory; results, never having a single
attack that did not readily yield to this
remedy. My wife, who had been an
Invalid for years, also began to use
Ayer's Pills, and her health was quickly
restored. . With my children I had no
ticed that nearly all their ailments were
preceded by constipation, and I soon
had the pleasure of knowing that with
