David -A, Wells; author:of "Ke- cent Economic Changes," and the createst American authority on the cause of fulling prices, has a full page article on this subject in the New \ont Tribune of September 7. He finds tmu. ,thcre has been a universal tall in prices, averaging 30 or 40 per cent., since IS..!, but that it is only in this country that the fall is attributed to the demoneti- zation of silver. Continuing, he says ^GM^ting, as every intelligent pevsoa must, that the recent universal decline in prices cannot be due to any local agency, but roust be attributed to some universal influence, it is claimed tnat Buch an influence.is to be found in an appreciation in the value or purchasing power of gold, owing to its hm.ted and insufficient supply, and also that this, .decline in prices followed the so-called demonetization of silver in some countries, and the closing of the mint, in other countries to its coinage. The appreciation of gold, helped by nn alleged enforced scarcity of silver, and a decline in price seem, therefore to stand to each other in the relaUonof cause and effect, and the cause of the advocates of silver has •accordingly «t the outset much of plausibility. But plausibility is not proof, nor assumpUon tmth. as is strikingly illustrated by the claim of Eev, ,Jasper, : pastor ; of,;_Hu. First colored church inlllcll1in , o , nd '^ that "the sun do move," and the earth "dp stand still," and who has more ot seeming facts in support of his faitn than can be addnced'by the ndvoeatea. of the gold appreciation theory-tor cannot everybody with eyes sec the sun m ov.e up every morning in the cast and move clown every evening: m the west? And if the earth moves 10 miles awry second, ns the astronomer bugs tell us. would not every movable tlii.fr fly off ' its surface as mud does from' n revolving carriage, wheel-? And ™ c ° t . h !" 1 '. does fly off. is it not certain that the •earth stands still? Investigation -j n the case of Kev. Jasper and the advocates of the gold appreciation theory will, however, lend to tlifflcrent conclusions. It Is to he noted In the first place, that the advocates of the latter theory, in stating what they assert to be the truth, never express themselves other than generally, m-nll that has been written or spoken in support of the gold theory on cither side of flie Atlantic. •No one has ever been able to name a single commodity that 1ms notably decline* in price.withln the last-BO years rind satisfactorily proved, or even at- 'tempted to prove, that such decline was due to the appreciation of gold. And the reason for such default is that it car.not .be''done. • * On the other hand, not a single commodity that has notably declined in price within this time can be .named in respect to which clear,'abundant and specific evidence cannot be adduced in proof that this decline has been due to decreased cost .of production or distribution or .to changes in.snpply or de- inand occasioned by wholly, fortuitous circumstances. irazilian Balm BE 6KMT SOUTH MESICM BKHII TiiPtGtllllli It clears the head of foul-mucous -heals tho .ores and ulcers of thehead «d *£*; jsweetens the breath, snd perfrcUy «8tofea the senses of the. taste, smell; and. bea™*> 'Stops headache and dropping, mto tte ttroat.
