THE GREAT TEN' DAYS' DEBATE
Between the Author of "Coin's Fi
nancial School' and Ex-Congressman
Itoswell G. Horr.
The Horr-Hirvey dubate, at Cbica-o,
Ihursday was marked by a more than usu
Wly Kiir0 eneountftf.
ftlr. I!rr called his opponent's attention
-4? .slatemf'nt which lie had made in his
-ritieiBm upon Senator Morgan, wherein be
stated that the silver do'lar- of 412 l-2graiu3
were largely coined previous the demouetl
tation of Bilver in 173 and alter the parage
of the law of 187.1, making sutidiarv c0in
ge rjf value than its scignorage. 'There
tore he ioferr-d that Henator Morgan was
mistaken in stating that none of the 412 1-2
lollars had been coined from silver mined ir
thiscountry. Mr. Harvey says th.1t the old
dollars of 412 1-2 grain were coined for the
People d Nevada and California- notwith
standing that at that time the bullion was
worth mow uncoined than coined. Mr. llorr
then denie that th'-se dollars were coined
from silver mir-erl In this country and sent to
the mint for that purpose. Congress had
provided that foreign coin should lie received
by the government at a certain fixed value,
and further that eiicn coins should not be
again put Into circulation but should bo re-
'!M1 at the mint. The report of the direc
tor of the mint showed that over five mill
ions dollars in silver had thus accumulated,
having been round In the gold during the
process of assaying it.
At this point, ll.irvey challenged Itorr's
statement, 6aying that he had not brought
his authorities with him end therefore his
arguments were entitled to no standing iu
the debate. He then handed Mr. Horr a
statement of the director of the mint, which
he said reported tint during the year 1870,
412,402 silver dollars had been coined at
Mr. Harvey again called his opponent to
task for not confining his remarks to the
order of debate originally agreed upon, and
said that he would not be diverted Irom this
order. He then entered upon a discussion
of primary and credit money, saying that an
over-issue of credit money caused a drain
upon the primary money for redemption
purposes. An example of .his had just been
witnessed in this country in ' the issue of
bonds by the present administration for the
purpose of maiiitiining the gold reserve,
Mr. Harvey s ii ho had received a letter
within the Inst few days from a large New
York manufacturer, in which tho writer
stated that all the money the bank sent him
to pay off his men was iu silver certificates.
Mr. Horr took his opponent to task for
makiDg a mi-take in his figures by 400.000
regarding the amount of silver dollars coined
In 1H70 at the Carson City iniut, and asserted
that the mint report, from which tho silver
champion had tpioted, had sustained Mr.
Dorr's proposition. Mr. Horr added: "Up
to this momt'Ut, Mr. Harvey has not said one
word Upon the real question in debate. He
bis not successfully controverted a single
statement of mine. He has nowhere proven
any act of bribery or the influence of money
in a single step taken during the progress of
..the bill through Congress. He or no one
else will, becausethere was nono."
There was an attendance of less than 100
listeners on Baturdiiy when Mr. Horr inau
gurated the next to the last session of the sil
ver debate iu Chicago. Mr. Horr opened by
quoting a report of the lluance committee of
the United States Senate for tho purpose of
ihowingthat gold had not appreciated since
1873, and challenged his opponent's sincerity
In basing his arguments in this matter upon
Saubeck's tables, which aro compiled by an
Englishman and based upon English values.
In his reply to these charges Mr. Harvey
produced an article written by Mr. Horr in
(tnswer to a correspondence which had ap-
? eared in the New York Tribune, in which
Ir. Horr scofTed at the idea which ho has
frequently advanced in the political debate
that human labor formed a trustworthy
Standard of value. Mr. Horr's reply to the
Correspondent, as quoted by Mr. Harvey,
foncluded with these words: "Your system
jeems so absurd that I can hardly treat it so
berly." Mr. Harvey said he was accused by
ois opponent of finding fault with men and
tonditions for the reasons, as he charged,
ihat the silver people delighted to do so. Mr.
Horr has contrasted against that the better
Jisposifion in man that loved to look on
ihlngs that are pleasant. Mr. Horr's inap
propriate language consisted of words that
Bight be addressed to slaves but not to free
hen. Mr. Harvey, In defending his use of
:he Sttubeck table to show the decline in
prloes of staple articles since 1S50, attacked
lheAldrich table, which he said was made
partly by the help of Edward Atkinson,
tvboso bias could be judged by the fact that
3ehad recently said over his own signature
lo a Chicago paper that the proper way to
leal with a silver man was to hit him over
the head with a club. Yet that report showed
I decline in prices of 30 per cent, below 1872
Ind 8 per cent, below the price of lSi'.(.
Mr. Horr n-cused his opponent of being
tricky in quoting one sentence from the arti
le which he bad written for the New York
Tribune and as assuming that it showed the
fist of the whole article. What he said in
refercuce to the man's theories being ridicu
jous did not relate to his measure of value at
11. It was his attempt to substitute a paper
dollar based on nothing with which to do the
business of the country. Mr. Horr added
''that is where Harvey will land yet. The dis
ease that ho has never dies out. What he
wants and what these people are after is to
destroy all property and to put this nation
on li Bociali-ti" and anarchistic basis.'
Cries of "no" .
Mr. Horr: That is right. I kii'-w you
would understand that."
Mr. Harvey: "There is not one scintilla in
thisdebatettiat authorises you to say that."
Mr. Horr: "I say there is one scintilla in
it. and I say that up to date you have got
applause from the audience, your part of it
only, when your arguments tended to show
thai vou think the whole society of this
country ought to be destroyed." (Cries of
Mr. Horr: "I know what I am talking
about. Now as to banks, why is it that Mr.
Harvey b-e'.s called upon to enter into a
tirade against banks and to indulge in such
a torrent of aluise again.-t bankers? I can
hardly conceive of a greater, tinre wicked
misrepresentation of facts than hav crept
into the talk he ha given us up to the
present moment. No nation has Iweu as pros
perous as the United Stall's since 17.."
Mr. Harvey present-d his opponent with a
table of failures in the United States during
the last .'58 years and declared that th" en dit
system of money would a vount lor every
dollar in those failures.
AN EDITOR SENTENCED
To Fine and Imprisonment for Criti
cism of a Public Ollicer.
At Asheville, N. C, in the case of II. CI.
Ewart, Judge of the Crmiual Court, againt
Erank E. Robinson, editor of the Citizen, for
contempt, the editor appeared Saturday.
His answer to the charge of contempt was
that the editorial complained of did not
represent the proceedings of the court un
fairlv. The criticism was made in pursuance
of the rights of the press under the Constitu
tion of the United Stabs, anp North Caro
lina as well. The editor further denied that
he intended any contempt of court, and,
under decisions of the Supreme Court ot
North Carolina, it was lelieved by all the
attorneys that this purging of the defendant
settled the matter.
" To the surprise of all present, however,
Judge Ewart, after a long decision from the
bench, during which he displayed great
feeling, ended by sentencing the editor of the
Citizen to pay a flne'of $250 and be imprison
ed in the common jail of Buncombe county
Jor thirty days. Bail was fixed 'at $2,000,
and in a few minutes the bond was made up
by the leading citizens bankers, merchants
and others of the city, and the editor was
released from the custody of the court,
i An appeal was at once taken to the Supreme
Court of North Carolina. The case will be
lought by the best talent i n the State,

This Year Promises to be an Important
One for the Textile Industry.
The Louisville Courier-Journal , says:
Last winter Massachusetts became so alarm
ed over the prospect of losing her cotton
mills that a Legislative committee was sent
down South to investigate the extraordinary
advantages offered by this new manufactur
ing region. This committee was followed by
another of mauufucturers. While their in
vestigations were not wholly discouraging
to New England enterprises, the manufac
turing States of the South were given an ad
vertisement of priceless value. The resu't is
seen in the American Wool and Cotton Re
porter's list of the nt-w miils under construc
tion in the United States during the first six
months of the year.
The showing is a remarkable one. North
Carolina takes the lead with thirty-one rew
mills and a uuml r of costly enlargements of
old plants. South Carolina has twenty-two.
Georgia fourteen. Alabama live, Texas and
Virginia three each. Arkansastwo and Lou
isiana one. Pennsvlvania comes n"t tc
North Carolina, with twenty-nine new plants,
and New York, with twenty-three, flut-he.-nhead
of South Carolina by a bare rose.
Massachusetts has only nineteen, and New
Jersey exactly as many as Georgia.
This year promises to le an extraordinary
one for the textile industries. Tho numix-i
of new enterprises tgun during the six
months is 201. while for the p.rst six month?
of 1S:1 it was only 116. and the total for the
year was but 263." The prortion of cotton
hvlls in the isn5 plants is very Urge, there
lieing 73 of these to 38 woollen, 57 knitting.
lCsilk and 17 mi."el!aneous.
Not only does the South build a flee pro
portion of these new mills: she also hassom

ones aro the (ieor::ia branch of the M i-sa-chusetts

have leen so scarce down this way that
