become so glorious in the coming century that all other nations ancient and modern will bo socoiulraie nations by compari son And with that vision before men if when they take the oath that they will to thu utmost of their ability pro tect and defend the Constitution and tho laws of the they cannot take it without any mental reservation then they ought to sorvo another term of probation before they are given the right to east an American ballot or to hold an ofYice under the American Hag or four days ago the people of tho ICast who love tho groat and good WIUTTIKK sent him their congratula tions on his eightythird bithday Ho was too feeble to bear personally tho strain of a great or his would havo been overflowing with joy ous and sympathetic friends to congrat ulate There is no disease on tho old man there is simply tho premoni tory symptoms thatt he machinery of his body is slowly running down and that pretty soon this year or next or in a littlo while at farthest it will stop The same papers that bring tho ac count of this say that the health of JAMKS to bo per manently enfeebled He no longer can bear public dinners he can no longer join in political With him as with the windows have the almond tree ffonrshea and in a littlo while tho mourners will go about streets A great pair of men are they They havo given ranch honor Massachusetts and to tho whole tlioy havo given a dis tinct significance to American literature and as they walk gently down the farther slope the arms of tho tion are stretched out to be their sup port A contemporary discussing tho silver question says What is Is an international agreement for the froo coinage of silver upon a certain ratio with and queries whether this country is strong enough to bring silver up to nearly or on a parity with gold on tho old ratio That la all true What la really wanted is an international agree ment but the governments of England and Germany would Btand in tho way though a vote of the people of either country would be in favor of such an agreement It was this doubt which made HO many Eastern Senators recoil before free coinage last summer It is this doubt which now makos the Presi dent and many of tho strong men in the Senate recoil boforb the Kame proposi tion Korne of tho shrewdest financiers in this region believe that the ratio of six teen to one is a dangerous ono and think that the grains in the gold dollar should bo reduced and the grains in tho silver dollar be intrcssod In order to make an adjustment which would be satisfactory to the world Of course just now the silver mines are yielding heavily and men in foreign countries and In the past of our own country feel towards silver as tho nations of Central Europe felt towords gold in 3 858 when be cause of the yield of tho pla cers of California and Australia they camo to the conclusion that gold was so abundant that it was not any longer a safe measure of values and actually de monetised gold Our own judgment is considering tho amount of business In tho world and whata trifling sum of gold thorn is in comparison with the business that has to bo done on a gold basis In comparison to tho property which has to bo handled that if our Congress would simply pass a law in structing the Secretary of the Treasury to pay or what would be better issue silver certificates for all American silver that might bo presented for pur chftso that in itself would adjust things In a very short time Of courso to say American silver Is to cast a doubt upon our own faith In silver but at tho same tune on a question whoro there are such sharp differences of opinion the best that can bo done is make a compromise and such a law would prevent any legitimate bankers or brokers on tho other side of tho ocean from attempting to smuggle In any silver Then If what the best authorities in Europe what our own Secretary of tho Treasury says Is true if the outside world cannot produce as much silver as it needs for its regular business why tho result must be that In a few weeks our silver will go up to If it will not then wo havo all been mistaken then because of tho abundance of silver it is not worth what wo have thought it worth then the grains in tho silvor dollar must bo increased or tho grains in tho gold dollar must bo decreased or both to mako a parity between tho two metals Except for Its use as money silvor would bo worth no more than copper or at least not much more than copper If silver is to bo relegated to tho province of a commodity really then It can only be handled as lead or copper or any othor baao metal Is handled Hut it is true that It never suffered that way PO long as it had tho confidence of our Government and tho Government of Germany When Ger many demonetized silver of course that compelled tho Latin Union to cease coining silver when Germany and tho United States both demonetized silvor which arrayed tho United States Eng land and Germany against England had demonetized silver in 1810 with the stoppage of the silvor coinage by tho Latin Union actually arrayed nearly all tho clvllixod world against silver as money It took from it Its good name mon began to distrust It as a measure of values though all the millions of tho Orient and Central and South America and In great part Russia know no othor money Its good name was shamefully besmirched and natu rally in values as compared with gold 33ut here comes In the point which our Nation at least cannot ignore With all this combination to destroy it as money its sovereign attributes could not be taken from it It never for a moment lost a particle of its purchasing power and hence when it was made short weight it in return macie everything else that comes of labor short weight and now the problem is beforo our people and it is Impressed upon them with more force than ever before can they on an abstrac tion afford to havo the millions on their farms and in their shops tho millions who possess some capital and through their capital and their work are trying to they afford to destroy this class of men financially That is what they will do if they ignore silver or fail to give it a money recognition Looking over tho whole field and only giving an opinion for what it Is worth our judgment Is that tho safest thing to do is to Instruct by statute the Secre tary of tho Treasury to purchase until further orders all American silvor pre sented at the mints and at tho same Groat Britain out of tho count because she will never consent to tho arrangement so long as she can rest on a gold basis and keep India on a sil vor the commercial nations of tho Old World to join us in a convention to make ono more effort to see if an in ternational agreement cannot be made through which gold and silver on some ratio shall bo interchangeable and ac ceptable as money and endorsed as such by all the commercial world except Great 3TATIVE These aro days that ought to mako tho mon of the United States serious thinkers these aro days when for some notwithstanding the wealth of the mine the wealth of the field and tho wealth of the shop notwithstanding tho mighty area of this country and the manifold resources which this country possesses there is a financial stringency from sea to sea The most cautious business men are a littlo In doubt about what the final outcome is to and solvent houses any troubled apprehension of the of further troubles more sorious than the present A great many doctors are pre scribing remedies for this state of af fairs One says ft can be iixud up through heroic doses of free silver another and a larger class following in this line believes that if tho Govern ment would only advance money on such security as tho average man has to give the trouble would be bridged over others assert that all the trouble comes from the fact that certain merciless rich men have not only put a padlock on their own strong boxes but havo gone and tied up the funds of the banks and are paying interest on those funds to keep them out of cir culation till they accomplish cer tain purposes in the stock board which they want to accomplish Our own judgment is that one great cause of the tiouble and one great obstacle to the clearing of it up is that our people in tho East put too much dependence on affairs beyond the sea If wo are rightly Informed not 5 per cent of the business of this country is foreign busi ness and if that is true then it is a shame that that 5 worked in any way per cent can be which will make trouble and confusion with the other 95 per cent We think a more perfect Americanism would cure tho troubles wo think If our people would depend upon themselves mako opinions for themselves do business for thomselve without fear that what they might do would not be pleasant to tho great bankers beyond the sea and get in the habit of doing this they would be betto off Four months ago wa invested in American securities on the other side of the Atlantic Because of overtrading because of the greed for high Interest which induced English bankers to make advances to certain South American the finan ciers of England and Europe woke up one morning to find that they had lost probably by investments in South America That naturally made commotion naturally the Ilrst thing they did was to commence to unload American securities The first no tlco tho bankers of New York received was not only that there was a mighty stringency in the money channels of Europe but through that stringency the holders of American securities there were clumping them on the market by wholesale This country had to receive and absorb them and so every dollar was required and it was required at a time when the securities of this coun try through the extraordinary call were falling in value every day It is a wonder to us how those bankers in the East stood up under the pressure so far as they have been able to do it so far too at tho season of tho year when harvests had to be moved when there was a call for every possible dollar that could be obtained While it was a hard it seems to us it ought to give all men in America a higher appreciation of their own country and it ought to give them now resolves to depend more entirely on their own country for all that they want until the time shall corao when there will bo no more American securities beyond the sea when this country will build all the railroads that it needs open up all the mines that it needs build and carry on all tho manufactories that it noods cultivate all the land that It needs and be at once a self contained an allsufficient country by it self Any country that produces worth of wheat in a year worth of cotton every year worth of corn every year worth of iron every year and of gold and silver every year ought not much longer to have to depend upon any other country for any thing It needs Certainly so much hope as surrounds our country never sur rounded any country before so rcmch wealth as is of right our countrys due never attached to any other country be fore and it seems to us that the finan ciers of our country whose business is directly or indirectly connectedwith the business beyond the sea ought to be squaring their yards to depend entirely upon our own land and our own people for their present and their prospective wealth Business men say there la more diffi culty in borrowing money In Utah even at a relatively high rate of interest and more apprehension for the coming few months than they like to openly admit It is true that businesswas never better It is also true that there was never be fore so groat a demand for money to carry what may be called speculative enterprises It is true that former panics or contractions of credit have not been immediately felt in Utah But it is also true that at the date of the panic of 1873 there was very littlo money in Utah So late as 1877 there was hardly on deposit in all the banks of Utah Now there is probably These sums aro a pretty fair indication of tho relative business speculative and otherwise of 1S77 and 1SDO Then tho output of our mines was about a year This year it will be nearly twice as much It is the output of the mines that enablesus to finally settle balances against us But in tho last two or three years a great deal Eastern money has been loaned out in our towns and ou our farms on mortgage and as these mort gages mature the tendency is for the money to return to the East where suc cessive failiiros of banks and businesS houses show the contraction of credit and the general disposition to draw in loans untilrestored confidencebrings brighter timos It will be remembered that two years ago the great banking houses of the East and the presidents of leading rail roads met and formed what was called the Gentlemens It was to the effect that rates should be fixed as agreed upon and held there and that there should be no more paralleling of roads or extensions into one anothers territory without mutual consent In a letter to tho New York Stm published a few weeks since JAY GOULD showed the effect of an advance of rates of mills per ton per mile On tons moved one mile in one year by the Southwestern roads it was In the past few months there has been a irreat shrinkage in tlie 9000 of American railroad Lvv GOULD has taken advantage of it if he did not to some extent help it on to acquire hold ings in leading railroad sys tems that would enable him in conjunc tion with a few others to reform the gentlemens agreement in such a way that it could be maintained That is being ratified by the differ ent roads of the West and all but one or two of them will doubtless assent to it There will follow increase in rates sufficient to well maintain the railroads and to give investors in rail road securities a certain if not large re turn upon their money This policy if it can be carried out and notwithstanding Mr STTCKNKYS bad opinion of railroad officials it probably will bo will soon re store confidence these securities will be taken out of Wall street by investors who mnst have an income to live on prices will recover confidence will be restored and failures will again fall to their normal number and amount At least this is the hope and also the expectation of the general business pub lic hero and everywhere The volume of railroad securities is so vast and they are held by so many hands that a ma terial shrinkage in their price alarms and cripples not only holders of railroad securities but all classes engaged in business This is1 why the liquidation in stocks and bonds which has been going on since midsummer aggravated by a similar process in London and by a real lack of real money in this country was finally begun to bo felt in banking manufacturing trading and all business The success of the attempt to hold railroad rates steady and at a paying point as the beginning of the restoration of confi dence and the swelling of credit should be forwarded wo think in every way possible by tho entire business com munity Although the heavy payments to be made after New Year will ease the present monetary stricture some what still it Is only to tho restoration of general confidence which come with a material rise In prices of securi ties dealt in upon the Stock Exchange that wo can confidently look for perma nent roiief If Congress would in addi tion provide for receiving and paying in silver dollars or certificates all the silver offered that too would help and by February the business of the country ought again to be running on an even keel THE bluff about a largo British fleet being sent to Bahring sea next spring is all the more comical from the fact that the returns from that sea thlsyoar show that the seals are nearly extinct and that two or three years more ofwhole sale slaughtei like the last few will leave nothing therefor any nations to quarrel over We do nob believe that Great Britain is going to send any force of war vessels to those waters Lord SALIS BURYS correspondence with Secretary ELAINE did not furnish any plausible excuse for any such Invasion of those waters and England could hardly afford to go to war wi th the United States on a question of that kind so long especially as tho States ex presses perfect willingness to settJo the matter on such terms as are just If Canada only had Englands navy or if England only had Canadas disposition for a row thero mightbe trouble but as it is these people up in Ottawa can shake their fists and swear as much as thoy please and neither Lord SALISBURY nor Secretary BLAINE will lose any sleep on that account Parfoet The Her A Antoine of Eefuslo An far as I am able to I mink Pastor Koo uigs Nerve Tonic is a
