The country is familiar by this time with the new silver currency one dollar greenbacks, which represent tho 4,500,000 ounces of silver bullion the government now buys monthly. The course of recent silver legislation in the Union is as follows: Up to 1873 we had free coinage of silver; that is to say, anybody with a quantity of silver bullion could take it to the United States mint and have it coined into silver dollars containing 371.25 grains each of pare silver. The government ouly charged him for this a sum sufficient to pay for refining and alloying the metal. In 187:1 the coinage of silver dollars (except the trade dollar for foreign silver countries) was stopped, as the silver men said, in the interest of the "gold bugs"—those who clung to the gold standard ulonc. In 1878, under the Bland silver law, silver dollars of the old weight and fineness (871.25 grains) began to be coined again. Under this law $2,000,000 worth of the metal was required to be coined monthly, and $4,000,000 worth might be coined. As a matter of fact, the minimum was scarcely at all exceeded at any time, and the utmost amount of actual silver dollars coined was about 2.500,000 a month. These dollars were piled up In vast heaps in the treasury vaults, The silver law of 1890 changed the face of things once more. • Under<fhat law the government stopped coining silver dollars, but buys silver bullion aud issues legal tender notes instead at the rate of $1,500,000 a rnanth. The currency of the country is, therefore, increasing at that ratti, and will be added to by $54,000,000 a year. The free coinage wen ure more active and powerful than they have been For years, and expect in this congress or neit to pass a law permitting the unlimited making of silver dollars, just as it was previous to 1873. It is predicted that then silver will become so abundant as to drivB gold altogether from the United States' circulation and make it command a premium in the markets. As to what would happen then the veter-sri financial writer of The New York Sun has this to say: My own ootiou is that so IPD?^' meu can pro duce twenty ounces of sllvw-at ibo same cost of labor as ono ounce of ^ U )J, ami then with 1U or U^ ounces of the sllrer coluetl Into mousy i>au procure uy.exctu&Keuu ounce i>( gold, they will prefer silver u;mlug to gold mining. Therefore, with Intentional bimetallism ut 1(1 or i.o!»j to 1 ttitt p.ffxiuct of silver woulj (noreiise, while Unit ot iokl would diminish. Only the morn dimply Workable gold liilues would be \vorLeJ, uiij the Others would be(.•Jo.-ieJ. Attiotn? trrno or other, therefore, the supply of gold, relatively to thiu of silver, would become so small ihut tho "peg" would give way. aud xohl would nil longrr Iw used tin money. Obviously, the precaution to be taken against the impending depreciutloo OJ 1 the dollar is alinl lar to that which u buyer of dry goods would take against an apprehended shortening of the unit of measure. If he had reason to fear that before the delivery of thu goods to him the legal yard would be reduced lu length he would, in liiukme his bargains, stipulnto for ineasuivinenu lo be determined by tbo yard as it stood. So in rcgunl to loans payable at n t'uturu dale, which are. in effect, contracts for the future delivery ol' money, and in making IOIIK leases the lender or the. landlord should stipulate for money of the present standard. This lias already been dnm< to a Rival extent. Many.leases, bonds and mortgages au reu | ,. s . late and millions of railraa-1 and municipal bumfs littvo been mude wlttilu tlie i'U8t r.nv years call ing either for "gold coin," or, what i.-i better, for "gold coin of the present standard of weight and fineness."

That life is fust panning ttwaj', and if the braves keep on lighting it will be quite passed away, ami the braves themselves safe in the happy hunting grounds before the World's fair begins. Let us have collections of Indian tepees, canoes, wampum and bows and arrows. A few hundred dried scalps might; be loaned by their proud possessors for the occasion in order to make it interesting. Articles illustrating the life of the Navajos and Zulus, and the radical difference between them and the northern Indians, would bo an admirable object lesson for some of our visitors. Many Europeans believe that the red Indian with war paint and tomahawk still roams the streets of New York and Boston. Now that the true story of Pdsuuarck's fall has come out, it will show the world a new side of the blood aud iron man. When he went groveling at the feet of Empress Frederick to induce her to intercede, with her imperial ton to take him back as chancellor the answer the mother made is one that will pass into history: "My lord, I would gladly do as you wish, but you have so estranged my son from me that 1 have now no influence over him." Put down in your memory this saying of Abraham Lincoln, "I shall try and correct the errors when shown to be errors, and 1 shall adopt new views as fast as they shall appear to be true views." Evi.'rvbocly is doing something for the fanner. In Germany the socialists have taken up the cause of tho agricultural laborers. They will try to 1'onn them into a union, and make them stand up for their rights and wages. The socialists charge that the life of the German agricultural laborer is scarcely human, and no better than that of ft Russian serf of the old time. of the annual report of the directors to tho stockholders upon Iho business of the corporation, and ot such other business, as'. hiay come before the 'meeting, will be held at the office of the company.

Dr. Shurly, of Detroit, is possibly America'A consumption cure physician. He certainly will be it' the cure cures. He claims to kill the consumption bacillus by chlorine, which he has been able to prepare in such form that the patient can inhal? it. This form is a combination containing chloride of sodium or common salt. Next, to destroy the consumption poison which Dr. Shurly thinks is in the blood, hi? gave hypodermic injections ct' iodine and chloride of gold. He "tried it on a dog" first, that is to say he treated the lower animals with his remedies before he applied them to lummii patients. They worked with eminent success, aud now the doctor believes they.will cure human beings. He has been experimenting in this field many years. "Stepnlak." Stepniak is with us. He calls himself that, or simply '-Stepuiak," in the magazine and newspaper articles that have drawn the attention of all the world to the real condition of the op pressed people of Russia. He and the American newspaper man, George Kennan, have done a genuinely great work in enlightening the civilized mind as to the horrors perpetrated in Russia. Stepniak's real name, which for reasons sufficient t>> him he rather took care * •>' keep from the public for some •Beit's, is Michael Drugomanoff. The reasons were connected with certain nihilistic doings for which Mr. Dra- gomaiioff was obliged to leave Russia somewhat hastily. He went to <\iris. Where he was not safe for a day on account of tlie extremely good understanding between the respective police farces of France aud Russia, Stepniak crossed to London. There, to the disgiitit of the Russian government, hi* was warmly welcomed and placed at once on the staff of The lyon- dou Times. He declares that a nihilist is not one who wishes to blow up the world with dyziAmUe, but one who sim ply desires ardently to see Russia under a liberal and constitutional government. He is a big Russian, with a heavy black beard and long black hair. His pretty little wife is with him, and he comes to America to tell us in lectures about the revolutionary movements, quiut. or otherwise, at present agitating Russia. With the retirement of Gen. Ben Butler from practice as a criminal lawyer the world will lose a good deal of fun. The Floral society of California has adopted the golden poppy us the state emblem. Is this because so much opium has been smuggled into the country through California ports? Citizens of tho north Atlantic states who have thought the winters were turning warmer have probably concluded by this tim« that our climate is not changing quite so much as it was.
