Corner Broadway and Si.xth St. Second floor, ft) WIFE OUT GREENBACKS. The KepuMican Plan For Reforming; the Currency. The purposas of the Republican leaders, if they shall succeed ,in all they hope to at "the elections this year and next, are not set forth in- their platforms, their newspapers or the speeches of their campaigners, says the Cincinnati Enquirer. All 'the iacts, though, point to the intention to- -destroy the greenbacks. The president's message advising the creation of a monetary commission had that end in view, and the present irresponsible monetary commission is organized for the same purpose. The plan is to wipe out the greenbacks and deliver over the business of issuing paper money to the banks, with the power to regulate the volume of the issue. The Republican leaders have been accused of this purpose repeatedly and have not denied it. They dare not deny it for fear of offending the speculators who control them,' and they are afraid to advocate such a procedure before the people. Every man who studies politics to any purpose, though, knows that if the .Republicans gain full legislative and executive power they will revolutionize the currency system not for the better, but for the worse.

Few people seem to know who Sfivapo was. He waa a scnr- rUous pamphleteer, whose pen was always in and out of venom. He would have died long before he did die had he not been befriended by Dr. Samuel Johnson, who was his one friend in the -world. How Mr. Goodwin is going to mate a hero of Savage is a mystery.
