The lad'is'but seventeen years of age and is the son of respectable parents. Jas. Malosh, hds companion, a, man-led man, plead gulty to the same charge and was sentence to one year .in the State's prison north other exttamo and put too low an estimate ou sliver. The.European nations ieoniposlng the Lathi Union made the ratio fifteen and wne hull' to one, and the owner of silver-here .would not exchange slwteen pounds of .It for a .pound ot gold because he cauld obtain the same thing in Europe for fifteen and a half pounds of his silver. In other words, the quantity of silver Jn a dollar was worth more than 100 cents. Consequently holders of sliver bullion ceas- ed'to sand It to the United States mints and the (Silver dollars previously' coined were hoarded. When the uulnt laws were revised in 1ST3 the provision for free coinage ot sHvor dollars was dropped. This attracted little attention at the time because none of the dollars had been In (ilrcu-latlooi for a geiievatioiu; and, iu frier, only eight millions of them had )een coined from the foundation of the government up to that time. Owing to tho discovery of now mines Hie world's irod'UcMou of silver begun to increase, ud the price subsequently began to de- 'line, and i the European nations were n self-defense compelled to close their «tots against further free? coiungo of the depreciated metal. ' .While silver was high the miaio owners cam! 110- tliiiiig :iibout the inl'iit, but whea It got so low Uwt a pound of gold would buy seventeen pounds of silver in tho market iliose gentlemen began to .clamor for a riwroraition oC tht- privilege of selling to t.ht.' American people'-through tlie uikit at the oJd ratio of -slxteou ro one. It was tjiL-ii Miait fhey discovered that tire not, of 1S73 \va.< a "cdnie." As a concession to them tlio Bland law was passed, under which nearly four hundred million sKyer dollars were coined', tlie treasury, however, -buying the bullion for this purpose at its •market value. In lS90"the Sherman law was passed compelll'nsr tho treasury to buy 140 tons of sliver every mouth and 'isslie -notes Jn payment, this'produced HID panic of 1S!)3, n<nd was then repealed. As a result of the laws we have coined or issued nearly six hundred million dollars to silver. Despite nil those purchases by the treasury the price of silver .steadily.'fell. -Today it takes about thirty .pounds of silver to buy a pound of gold, but tlie free-coinage advocates demand that the government— tlitit Is to say, the people—shall take sixteen pounds of silver as the equivalent o.f a pound of gold, Wlion the 371^ grains of silver that go to make a big dollar, were worth, more than, a hundred cents the mine owners sold their product In Erope. NOTV that 371% grains are worth about 53 cents they insist that tho government shall stamp It into a dollar and shall open, the mints to all the silver in the world at this ratio of "sixteen to one.''

I have watched them by the hour flying abreast of the steamer fromi 10 to £5 Jeet from the ship's rail, with even'eye fin the porthole from which refuse of the cook's galley is dumped into the eeo. CeneroJJy, this grateful event takes place just after meal time, nnd a gull will follow a ship ten hours for the sake of one mad dash at the scraps that it expects to be consigned to the ocean. The gull cannot be fooled with anything short of fresh meat or crackers. I have tried orange peel and scraps of pastbonrd. which I tossed into the air or into the sea, but not a bird turned a feather! But if you hold a, scrap of cracker in your hand, j'ou see e*cry bird draw as near as he dares, with n knowing blink' and a turn of the head. Toss it into the air, cud a wild scream issues from JO throats; as many pairs of wings flash in the sunlig-ht; £0 pairs of red or black legs dangle in the air, and the scrap never reaches the seat The -great event is when the dinner scraps go overboard from the galley. Thereto, mod scramble, the air is filled with hoarse cries, the whole flock settles on the water with Uplifted wings, each screaming 1 and flapping in the vain effort to get all there is for itself. The • steamer goes on,.leaving a white, struggling spot on the water in its woke. But presently they start after her again, and with quick, nervous strokes they reach .her side, and sail serenely on with her as before. The most amazing piece of business I ever saw was a gull coolly preening itself with its bill while it was. following in full flight, apparently without an effort.
