The ratio 16 to 1 ia eyidence that
an inequality exists betwaen gold
ana silver, it- the metals were
coined on 1 hat basis, in order that
thre might be equal chances given
them, the leg$ftender aws ! remain

as silver dollar's;' ' that Ta i for every
1,000,000 Bilyer dollars there sbonld
be 16.000.000 cnld dollars
" i
On that basis for-the ;PO.ODO,O0O
silver dollaB nowlnfcircaiation in
this country there Bhould be sixteen
times 600,000,000, that is to say
9,600,000.000 gold dollars: . Take
of 600,000,000 dollars for " gold " boV
in circulation, and we have 9,000,

gold is behindv. The capacity of he

000. 000 single dollars would require
1. bOwars, which seems to be the
perioS-as demanded by the ratio 16
to 1, dniing which not a: silver dol
lar should be coined, that is if the
two metals are to have raji, equal
chance in the basis earned above: - '
Of course, it is not advocated that
coinage shall take place, on the above
basis. Neither is. it j advocated, as
some seem to thiuk it should be.that
the ratio 16 to 1 signifies that we
should have sixteen dollars where we
haye one now. " On that" basis the 1,
600,000,000 dollars now ia circula
tion, would have to be raised to six
teen times that amount,that is, to en
nomousBumof 25j600,000,000 dol
lars,which would give us ecirculation
of nearly four hundred dollars - per
capita, and take 480 years to coin it,
deducting the 1,600,000,000 already
in .circulation. The trouble with
thJLble standard seema to be the
efiort to enforce by law an eqmlity
where there ia no natural equality.

St. Louis, Mo., Sept. " 5. A
special to the Chronicle from Pied.
raaNegras, Mexico, says that ad
vices have reached there of the al
most complete destruction of the
towha of Roderiguez and Abastor,
situated Eouth of there in the valley
of the Salidor river. Both places
were wiped out of existence by a
cloudburst, which ocenrred ia the
Sau Bias mountains, back of the
towns. The water rushed down in
the- valley, in a tremendous torrent
sweeping everything before it.
Lt covered the ground to a depth of
eix fret .and the flood was from six
to nine miles wide. The business
houses and residences of the two
towns were built of adobe, and they
melted away before the torrent of
water like so much sand. The town
of Abastor had a population .of
1,500 people.

today a: 1 o'clock, bat Superior
court was late in adjourning and he
was a little late in reaching the J

Wben he cdled Justice Keith in
formed him that the trial was post
poned until tomorrow afternoon
Uolonel btaples had an affidavit or
two prepared and asked that Keith
swear the parties. Very abruptly,
it is charged, Keith refused to do
so, whereupon Staples remarked
he was not fit to tiy a dog, or wordB
to that effect.
His justiceship then ordered him
under arrest for contempt of court.
Colonel Staples at once went before
Judge Starbuck and obtained a writ
cf habeas corpus and the ca.e is to
be heard this afternoon, "after court
adjourns. Colonel Staples in the
meantime being released on his own
recognizance.
How the "learned" justice could
adjudge any one in contempt when
he had just stated court was not in
session is a new procedure.
Colonel Staples is acting upon
principle, with no fear of being im
prisoned, for if Mr. Keith or any
other justice can at will, postpone a
case, thus keeping a defendant in
jail or from being beard as long as
he pleases then indeed have we fall

What Women Can Do.
She can throw a ball with a curve
that will defeat any catch in the
country.
She can look like an aneel under
a shaded lamp and cheese cloth dra
penes.
She can endure more discomfort
for a longer period than an able-
bodied man, and remember it longer.
She will go into hysterica oyer a
mouse and walk under the nose of a
prancing team .of horses without
getting hurt. ...
She can tell to aTiust what is com
ing, and yet meet it with a baby stare
of innocence that would do credit to
a five-yer-old.
She has been known to deliver a
certain lecture that beat all the ser
mons in the world for teaching and
and long-suffering.
She can swathe her body in woolen
and sealskins and haye only a rim
of cold jet on her head, and yet not
believe she is taking cold in the bit-.
terest weather.
She can accuse a man 83 confident"
ly that he makes a clean breast of
his shortcoming, supposing she
knowa what Bbe is talkie g aboat,
when she is only guessing.
She can be too smooth and sweet
for anything if let alone with the
woman she hates, while a man un
der the same circumstances would
get himself arrested for assault and
battery.
