The Government must have
money Like our humble self it wants
it bad, bur, unlike us, it has many
ways of obtaining it. Tae most
usual cf these is the tariff. A singu
lar thing is presented in this tariff
matter- To lighten the burdens of
the people a bill has been intro
duced in Congress that, with all
tbe tariff revenue collected, will
leave a deficit of about seventy
millions. How is this deficit to be
snppliedT Various ways has been
suggested; such as an income tax;
the free coinage of silver; the coin
age by the Government of the sil
ver bullion iu the treasury, and the
HsuiDg of bonds.
Tbe Government has cbosen the
last named asth3 best remedy for
the present condition ot affairs.
Volumns will be wnttea about if,
but tbe excellent Coarlotte Obser
ver covers tbe grouud in a single
paragraph wbea it says: "3j the
