tfAILY PHAROS SATURDAY. O^T. 23. 1897. BXXJ. JOHN W. BAKKEB. Lonthain * Barnes. IDITORB AND PROPRIETORS. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION - Dally per week, 10 cent*; per momh 40 cents; per year utrlctly to advance) J.1.50 The Weekly Pharos and the Snnirdiy Pharoa the iwo lonnin? the Seroi-WueKly •<!itlon. fl.25 a year, strictly in advance. Entered at the Logansport, lr.d.,poBtofflce as tlBBB mall matter, as I rovided by law. THE treasurer of El ;bart county is the latest Republicai. official to go wrong. His defalcation is about *20,000. FlITST A SSISTANT POSTMASTER GENERAL HEATH recommends tbe extension uf the free delivery system to the more thickly populated suburban districts, also more severe penalty for the punishment of postmasters who peddle stamps with a view to increasing tbefr salaries. THE order of the secretary of war, establishing military authority over that part of Alaska lying within a radius of one hundred miles of St. Michael, is fXpecter» to give the country peace and quietude until gucb. time as tho growth of population results In tbe establishment of stable civil government. IF a tax payer si'tlcies tbe manner in which a street is Improved, he is not necessarily a foe to street improvement. Nor when he condemns the extravagance of the electric light management Is he necessarily opposed to the electric light plant. This is a distinction that "Your "Uncle Steve" does not recognize. IT is the legal functions of money that gives to the metal its great value. It is the legislator who bestows upon the metal this function. The legislator can withdraw the raoney function and thereby destroy the metal's great value. Hence the term "intrinsic value," applied to money is misleading. Its value is almost entirely extrinsic. Aristotle gays: "Money Itself is only a frivolity, it has value only by the law and not by nature, inasmuch as a change of agreement among those who can use it can depreciate it completely." If an example be needed to prove conclusively tbe accuracy of the great philosopher's conception of money, we have It in tbe monetary history of the last twenty-five years. No one can doubt, that had there been no change in the coinage laws of this and other countries silver at Tide ratio of 36 to 1 would be worth today as much commercially as gold. If accorded the same coinage rights that gold now possesses, the demand for the metal will restore its value. Recommends Dr, Greene's Nervura for Vigor, It Invigorates the D!ood, Makes Strong Nerves and Powerful Muscles. It Revitalizes the System, Giving Health, Strength, Energy and Power. Shall British Baukers Rule the World? Noting the fact the barkers 01 London bad forced the British government to reject the demands ol the people for the restoration of silver coinage, the Indianapolis Sentinel makes this pertinent Inquiry: "What are you going to do about it? The London bankers have shown their ability to dominate Great Britain. Can they dominate the United States? The vast majority of the men who supported McKinley last year believe In International bimetallism. The London bankers say to them: 'You shall not have international bimetallism. You shall have gold monometal- lism.' At the same time their •Hies, the torles of this country, say we must do what tte London bankers want. We muat issue gold bonds Instead of coin bonds. We must retire the greenbacks and issue gold bonds in place of them. We must virtually re-establish the bank of the United States, which Andrew Jackson killed, by turning the complete power over the currency Into the hands of the national banks. We must fasten gold monometallism on ourselves so that its chains can never be broken. What are you going to do about it, you international bimetallists, who know that gold monometallism is a blight and a curse to every nation it lias touched? Do you not now realize what many of your associates realized last year, that the cause of International bimetallism is hopeless, except HS America leads the way? Do you not now realize that the contest !s between gold monometallism and Independent free coinage? Thai is the issuft that is to be fought out in this country and it will never be fought out until free coinage wins. This people will not accept the bondage of the London banters. They shall not rule us. Our forefathers won their independence an hundred years »go and it ihall not be surrendered to tne money-bags of England today. The old war for independence required eight years. Ttils one may take as long or iongar, but It will be won.' A meeting at th« Prohibition party vw held not long ftaoein JUnoMter, Pa.

An impassioned orator who thinks he thinks he has a great mission to uplift i the downtrodden masses declares that 1 "no man can acquire $100,000 in a long lifetime unless he does it by robbery." Probably it would be impossible for the orator who made this statement to get $100,000 except by stealing it. But whoa he says nobody can do it he dashes his little brains against a solid •wall of fact. | Let us see. There is the sweet song bird Patti. Her earnings half a dozen years ago from her voice alone footed up considerably over §1,000,000. Did she rob those who gladly paid their money to hear her matchless music? A thing is honestly worth just what people are willing to pay for it. Patti's sing- J ing waa worth over $1,000.000 to those j who loved to hear it; otherwise they would not have paid so much for the privilege of listening. Let us see again. There is farming, which the impassioned orator in question would probably claim to be the most'toilsome and poorest paid occupation of all. Well, in one of the eastern states there is a farmer, now a century old, who is worth $100,000. He had no exceptional advantages except a clear, shrewd head and a determined will. In an interview not long since he said: "A man should lay up $1,000 for every year of his life. That is what I have done off my farm.'' His farm is one of the show places of his neighborhood, and he hiraself one of the most respected citizens far and near. Simply by using his brains and putting his heart into his business he accumulated $100,000. Did he rob anybody? First Alaskan Kailroad. The climate of southern Alaska at least is not too severe to admit of the building of a railway in midwinter. The contractors for the first railroad in Alaska expect to have their line ready to transport freight and passengers by Jan. 15. The road will be a short one. The first part of it, from Dyea to Dyea canyon, at the foot of Chilioot pass, will be only eight miles long on the JleveL At the month of Dyea canyon the ascent of the pass begins. Here the road will be metamorphosed into what is wiled an aerial tramway. It will be divided into stages to soit the stesp ascent. At intervals of every hundred feet across the rass strong iron j will be planted firmly in'the earth, aim across these will be strung the cables which support the cars. From Dyea canyon to Sheep Gamp, a distance of four miles, the first aerial line will be stretched. The average ascent here is 250 feet to the mile. From Sheep Camp to Summit, 3}b miles, is the second stage. Thence down the other side from ST. mm ir. to Crater lake the third aerial tramway will convey the miner and his goods. The builders of the road estimate the outfic for 200 miners at 120 tons •weight, and they say they can put this amount of goods and passengers over their route in one day. It will undoubtedly be the best paying railroad in the world. If now some equally enterprising firm will quickly construct a road around the dangerous part of the rapids of the Yukon, the Chilkoot route will at once become the grand highway to the Klondike. The tulip craze of a century ago promises to be repeated in some measure by the race horse craze. The fact that Langtry won in one race $200,000 ou Merman at Newmarket will send the prices for breeding animals of famous running blood up several points. Just previous to the Newmarket race the government of Hungary paid an Irish sporting man $100,000 for the 8-year- old thoroughbred Galtee More, Charles Read of New York a few years ago paid |100,000 for St. Blaise. The highest price on record for a horse, however, is the $150,000 given by W. O'B. McDonongh of California for the British bred racer Ormonde. Maybe the horse business is dead. But these little facts do not look like it. The coast of the state of California is a? long as from the southern point of Maine to the northern corner of South Carolina- Few people on the Atlantic coast appreciate this fact. The Asiatic trade on our Pacific coast is developing at the rate of millions a year. The $2,900,000 which the last congress appropriated to deepen and improve the harbor of San Pedro in southern California will be money wisely spent. Why the nations of Europe should be »eady to fly at one another's throats and destroy one another is something mn Americac cannot understand. IB it complimentary to refer to A group of athletes as a big football team? RELIGIOUS THOUGHT. Gems of Truth Gleaned From th« Teachings of All Denomination*. Sunday ought not to be a lazy day. To lie about the house all day unwashed and unshaven is not true rest.—Eev. Dr. Jackson, Baptist, Chicago. Good For Man and Beaut. Both men and animals live longer and do bf.tter work by taking one day ia seven nr physical rest.—Rev. C. H. PolhemuB, Cougxegatianalist, Denver. Han's Own Reflection. A man's estimate of God is his own reflection. Tell me a man's mature estimate of God and it will not be difficult to estimate that man.—Bishop E. R. Hendrix, Methodist, at St. Louis. The Turtledove. The turtledove has time immemorial been a synonym of love. Ker song has been caught up by the human heart and rendered into the sweetness of human affections,—.Rev. Jenkin Lloyd Jones, Chicago. Suicide. There is something simply awful in the growing tendency of the modern, individual to take in hand the precious gift of life and fling it back in the face of his Creator.—Kev. Father James J. Baxter, Catholic, Boston. In Time of Need. • Twopence may sometimes be worth more than a gallon of teardrops or a ton of good wishes. Christ loved in the Samaritan way and served, humanity at infinite cost to himself.—Rev. C. M. Bowers, Baptist, Clinton, Mass. Be Faithful to Vow». Be faithful to your vows. Not only in tho lower relations of life must we be faithful, but to the higher spiritual duties must we be faithful with all the consideration of devotion.—Bishop L. W. Burton, Episcopal, at Philadelphia. A Characteristic of l;he Age. The modern age is marked above everything else by its love of the fact. Art and literature as well as science are intent on discussing nature's laws and reproducing life as it is,—Mrs. Celia P. Woolley, Independent Liberal Church, Chicago. Fixity of Character. Character grows into fixity. Child hood's susceptibility fades with the years. What a man sows he reaps. Froffi thought he goes to deed, from deed tn habit, from habit to character, from character to destiny,—Rev. Kerr B. Tupper, Baptist, Philadelphia. No Retrogression. The advancement made in science, literature and art which has come tc us is to live on and on. The great battles of the world have not beou _ fought in vain, for we today are enjoying the fruits of these victories.—Bishop Ethel bert Talbot, Episcopal, at Chicago. The Karth May Dissolve. It is natural that heaven should be described as a city. The earth may solve—that's a very small thing; we shall find it so—but the foundations of that city, which were built for eternity, will endure.—Rev. M. E. Wright, Methodist, of Cochituate, Mass., in New York. In Debt to tlie Past. We are all in debt to the past. The book for which we pay a nominal sun has been made possible by the literatim of generations. The university tuitior. is a mere nominal sum. In science and mathematics and philosophy and his- torv we receive the net results of the delving of the scholars of all the ages. —Rev. H. F. Perry, Baptist, Chicago. A Neighbor. Mere emotional benevolence has no part in real sympathy. Some people can weep over suffering and still do nothing. If the Samaritan had sat down and shed tears of sympathy and offered fervent prayer and exercised a tender hope that Providence would somehow intercede, we .never should have heard nf him as Christ's idea of a neighbor.— Rev. C. M. Bowers, Baptist, Clinton Mass. No Millennium In 1902. We do not expect tho millennium tc begin in 1902. We do not expect it to begin then any more than any other year. No one has the right to set any specific date for the beginning of such an event. The time of the milieu niurn is a very uncertain thing- I per sonally have no idea that it will begin iu lt'02 or any other near date.~Rev, A. B, Simpson, Christian Alliance, a Nyack, N. Y. The Klondike Kugh. In Seattle stores are short handed, al lines of business have "help wanted' advertisements out, and the exodus wil still be greater in the spring. I saw one provision store that had been cleane( out as if by a cyclone. The Klondiker. had bought everything, and the pro prietor was kicking his heels joyoush against an empty counter. — Rev, Charles H. Everett, Congregationalist East Orange, N. J. The Bible and the Hone. It might be an exaggeration to sai that the Bible was written by horse lov ers, but it is certainly not too much t< say that it contains many passages which could only have been penned by men •who delighted in the beauty, grace ana speed of this noble animal. Indeed, no literature contains a deicriptive passage equal to that of Job in which the spirii and action of the horse are fo graphic ally portrayed.—Rev. H. D. Jenkins Presbyterian, Kansas City. Eic*edinjr Their Rights. No civil power upon earth has the right to interfere with the- commission ers of the King of nations in tile dis charge of their embassage. The crdi nance of the city of Boston forbidding the free public preaching of the gpspe without a permit from, the mayor is in direct contravention of this high commission- This ordinance, having been sustained by the supreme court of Mas- gachfisetts and the supreme court of tbf Uni»d States, has become, the action of this nation of the United States.—EOT.
