Now let us supf-osj that our stand
ard of value ia t o high, that our
money is too dear, and let as sap
pose farther th-t it shall be reduced
one-half. Thtt would make each
dollar now ia ciica'ation have the
commercial value of only fifty cents.
EachsdjFd cent dollar no .7 in
the hands of the people would be rei
duced in commercial value to a fifty,
In making thishange of standard
the law would no doubt provide that
no man should be wronged out of
his honest earnings. The law would
no doubt say that the change should
apply to new contracts and not to
old contracts, notes etc. A clause
would no doubt be attached to the
law.naming the basis on which ail
outstanding claims should be settled.
It would no doubt provide
for the payment cf ail dues and
claims on the new basis. All de
posits jli savings and other banks
would have their nominal amounts
doubled. All notes and accounts
outstanding would leave the amounts
for which they called doubled. All
laborers would have their wages
doubled. All clerks would have
their salaries doubled. All fees, all
taxes would be doubled. All prices
would be doubled. A 11 old notes and
ell bonds of long or short standing
would have the r face or nominal
values doubled. All . rates of iuterest
would be doubled. In this way the
law would provide that the holders
of notes and accounts, laborers,
clerks, etc., should not be wronged
out of their just dues. The law
would hardly change tbe standard
without caring for those who are in
position to be wrong- d. To make the
dollavra half doliar, and not make a
huolfredAdollar note become a two
hundred dollar no-e, would be treat
ing the holder of tue note unjustly.
This the law would hardly permit.
The law ?o b juef must not go part
of the way, then stop, but must go
the whole way, so as to include all
kinds of contracts. To allow goods
to be Bold on the basis of 100 cents
to the dollar, and then foree a set
tlement on the basis of 50 cents to
the dollar, without doubling the
merchants account, would be to
wrong the merchant out of one half
of his account' To borrow one hun.
dred dollars on the basis of a 100
cents to the dollar, and force a set
tlement of the note on the basis of
50 cents to the dollar wiuld be to
wrong the creditor out of one-half of
his money. Any governratnt that
would attempt to enforce any eueh
law would lose the cocfil. nee of its
people and would not stand twenty
All debts would be doubled and
would stand fixed in amount, but
how would it be with the prices, say,
of farm products ?
At first they would be doubled. If
cotton hod been seven cents per
pound, the price would be rdiaed
suddenly to fourteen cents. This
doubling of the price waiid tend to
increasing the amount produced.
The amount produced haying been
largely increased the price would
tumble, but the doubled dibts would
not tumble. If a farmer wa3 in deb

The reader who remembers that
the law cannot, be a respector of per
sons will no doubt be ready to ac
knowledge that tbe matter of tam
pering with the standard of value is
one that might bear heavily in differ
ent directions, and wha'. ma appear
on the surface as tendiog to lighten
the burdens of the debtor class might
in reality torn out to be a meaua of
mcreadiDg the loud which that class
has to carry already. If tbe dollar
be cut in two, ceounts and notes
mast be doubled and doubtless
would be doubled by the same law
which cut the dollar in two. Jus
tice wold require thtf it should be
done, and it would done. '
Fortunately for the debtor no such
law will be enacted. The standard
will not be cat 'jaUdle in two, and
account s and notes will not be
doubled. Tbe dollar1 will no doubt
continue to be measured by the just
and honest standard pf 25 8 grams

was in the city today, to meet her

the noon train from the Oxford Asy
Arthur and Walter, aged 12 and
9 years respectively, are the names of
the boys. If what they . tell be
true, the conduct of the Ox

have been giyen these children is not
only not humane, bnt cruel, Aery
They claim that they did not get
enough to eat, that they actually
suffered for food. Arthur, accord'
mg to his statement, together with
six others, ran away-six weeks ago.
They went to Youngyille, thirty
miles distant. One of these boys
has been at the asylum for six years
and grew so tired of the treatment
he could stand it no longer. For
five weeks and two days these boys
were away, the authorities knowing
nothing of their whereabouts;
neither were the parents notified of
their escape. Mrs. James knew
nothing of the matter until today.
Hearing that her children were so
dissatisfied with their treatment, she
wrote Mr. Lewrence to let them
come home; whereupon he Bimply
replied that "nothing would please
him better," and instructed her to
get an order from the Master of the
Mt, Pleasant Masonic Lodge.
" Walter's story is a sad one. He's
thin and weak. His arms are no
larger than a grown person's thumb;

I am not in the habit of writing

today if yon will allow me space. I
feel it my duty to correct the state

taught two years in the Asylum and
know whereof I Bpeak. I do not
know these boys, as they have been
received there since I left last July
a year ago; but I am quite sure they
have sadly misrepiesented Mr.
Lawrence and the institution gener
ally. No doubt they were lonely and
homesick perhaps sick, but we all
know how easily children become
prejudiced and how they can draw
on their imagination.
In the first place. Mr. Lawrence is
not cruel to the children, nor are any
of the teachers or matrons. Mr.
Lawrence is a Christian gentleman
and is as much interested in the
welfare of the many orphans en
trusted to his care as one cas possible
be in any work. I am in direct com
munication with several of the
children and have never yet heard a
word against Mr. Lawrence or his
treatment of them, and they are de

impossible to prepare bo many differ

They have good, plain, substantial
food, well cooked, and served to all
alike, consisting of nice light bread

boys who were raised there, also
have corn bread, biscuits, batter
cakes, rice and hominy, plenty
of potatoes and other vegetables,

eating walnuts for they were
quite a rarity when I was there.
