That there is no lack of money in the country is sufficiently shown by the fact that the surplus is to say, the idle and unlendatjle the New York banks amounts to This money is. pressed upon the market at per cent, for call loans and only 3 arid 4 per cent, for time loans. There is nobody to take it eVen at these rates simply because the political situation and the grave apprehension of disaster as the result of possible free-silver legislation have paralyzed enterprise and made men afraid to enlarge their operations. There is no outflow of gold of any consequence, and at this season, with exchange rates what they are, there ought to be an influx of forty or fifty millions. Yet the gold reserve is rapidly running dowp and stands now at only $106,534,988, with Ji prospect of sinking considerably below the hundred-million mark in near future. This can mean only one thing. It means that men apprehensive of a possible lapse to the silver standard are already drawing gold out of the Treasury and hoarding it against the evil day. As it is easily possible for them to draw out all the gold and thus lock up another hundred millions of greenbacks in the a total contraction of about inducement to engage in new business enterprises no longer exists, while the paralyzing fear of the panic that must result contraction spreads a pall over enterprises already undertaken. And all this existent depression and threat of worse to come is due to the madness of i in yielding to the free-silver craze and cfrnipromia- ing with, it instead of boldly jt. It is safe to say. that if wa had no Presidential election this year, or if 'either party could be de-i pended upon nominate a trustworthy and lute Bound-money man upon an unequivocal sound- money platform, the prosperity of the country would now be greater than at any former period of its history. Confidence is destroyed and paralyzed by wild financial theories and by' that political dishonesty which yields to such in a reckless scramble for votes. 'BEPOTMOAN SOLIDARITY, There are no indications of a formidable bolt from the St. Louis Convontion. The free-silver men will not get what they ask in the platform, but they know McKiniey. His votes, his letters and his speeches have been on their.side in the past, and whatever the platform may say they will not doubt that If a Republican Congress dur- term shall pass a free-coinage bill he will sign it. McKinley's entire character and career sustain this view. It is quite safe to say that neither In his letter of acceptance nor la'ia'ny subsequent utterance will he pledge himself to sustain, thfl -present standard by executive veto if elected. There will be plenty of threats and some defections, but there are no signs ot any serious division or organized bolt in the Republican party on the silver question. Dubois, De Young, Shoup and others disavow any intention of bolting. The delegates are politicians first of altf They hanker for the, spoils of victory. They have no idea of shutting themselves out from official favors for four years by deserting the party on the eve of its return to power. Thta being the case, what hope have the free- silver Democrats of making good from Republican recruits the inevitable and heavy losses among the sound-money men of their party? -The electoral votes of all the mining-camp and sage-brush States combined do not equal that of New York alone. But with no organized Republican bolt most of these States would'remain in the Republican column. With all the Eastern States Irretrievably lost by a free-silver platform and candidate, and several of the border States lost also, what com- pensattotj would there he in a few scattering electors picked up in the Northwest?

OHAMBEELAIH'S ZOLLVEEEDf, The third congress of Chambers of Commerce irom all parts of the British Empire, now in session has afforded an opportunity to urge the adoption of an imperial embracing all British countries and Jlepejidencles. This Mr. Chamberlain describes '-'free trade within the realm."

Albany rate, It should be heeded at Chicago. It means that on a platform or with a Candidate representing the madness of free silver the Democracy cannot carry a single Northern State or any one of about half a dozen Soxtthern border States and cannot como within many miles of electing a President. It means that the dominance of free silver at Chicago will doom the Democracy to defeat and the country to all the evils of McKinleyism for years to come while the nomination of a sound-money man of national reputation at Chicago on a sound-money platform would create conditions extremely favorable to Democratic triumph. Which shall it be? vestments are of greater weight in English politics than the wishes of the landholders, and, they would be put in the gravest jeopardy by any attempt to unite the British possessions in a commercial league against the United States. The imperial "zollverein" is a Tory ideal that Is never to be realized. Were it put in operation the effect would be disaster both to England and America. the Washington Post.

The first thing the May Grand Jury did was -to indict the officers of the American Tobacco Company, or Cigarette Trust. The indictment was found under thfc Anti-Trust law of this State. That direct passed three years ago, but has never been enforced. The facts presented to the Grand Jury are clear- cut and susceptible of no misapprehension. The Cigarette Trust has been doing all the things forbidden by the the things which the law was framnfl to punish as crimes against the common weal. This indictment presents the first opportunity that has ever been given to submit a case of this sort of crime to the judgment of a jury of twelve disinterested men. It was found more than a month ago. Why has it not-been'followed The Cigarette Trust lawyers have demurred. Why has not the District-Attorney brought the demurrer to argument so that the case might go on?

Are the rich and influential officers of a powerful corporation possessed of any "pull" which exempts them from the obligation common to all other criminals to answer for their misdeeds? BEHIND THE TIMES, Upon his arrival from Europe yesterday Mr. Plerpont Morgan was promptly interviewed and was asked what effect the nomination' of McKin- iey would have upon our financial relations with Europe. His reply was that "McKinley hasn't been nominated yet." It is that gentleman of Mr. Morgan's intelligence'should be'content to-remain so far behind the tim'es. is noW more than, two months since The World announced that the nomination of McKiniey was foregone conclusion. Every development which has taken place: in, the interval since then has merely served to confirm the accuracy of the announcement. McKiniey has been nominated, fie was nominated by the logic 'The St. Louis Convention will be merely'a ratification meeting. OnTOHOWW PBOrEOTIOlf. A despatch from states that a big iron company at that placoi.has closed a contract for 500 tons of pig-iron with a foundry pany In Genoa, Italy. It is to be used In making steel, and takes the place of English pig; 1 fore used. Another Alabama furnace, it Is said, expects to sell in Italy 50,000 tons a year of its output. This justifies the position of 'The World when four faithless Democratic Senators joined in "hold- Ing up" the Wilson Tariff bill to force (as, they succeeded in doing) the retention of a duty, on pig- iron. We then said that Southern furnaces could make pig-iron cheaper than it could be manufactured elsewhere in the world, and that therefore no duty was needed. The political agents of the iron "combine" and the railroad pool had their way, however, under the old plea of "protecting American industry." The fact that Alabama iron is displacing English pig in the European markets proves that th's particular "infant Industry" needs protection about as much. as a stalwart miner needs a nursing-bottle. And yet to the face of this demonstration, nnd of the shipments of- American armor plate to Russia and American rails to Japan, the cohorts of McKinleyibm aresgathering at Louis to shout for' "more protection." A BIOTOLES. There was a public heaflrjg yesterday on Alderman Goetz's proposal to tax wheelman fl a year on each wheel 'by him. It brought out reasons' enough for not doing anything of the kind to kill any conceivable proposition before any reasonable body-. First of all there is, common fairness to be considered. The bicycle wears streets less than any other vehicle, and it adds not one particle to the work of street-cleaning, while other wheeled vehicles are large factors in creating the necessity, and compelling the expense of street-cleaning, if carriages, buggies, sulkies and the like are to pay no tax, why should the bicycle, the least objectionable and the least expensive to the city of''all, be taxed? Why should the poor man's comfort taxed while the rich roan's luxury is free? Again, under the proposed law every visitiitg wheelman from New Jersey, Long Islanfl anl other places £he city must pay the an'd wear upon entering the town. Does anybody dream that toeir towns would fall to' retaliate? Ah'a under retaliation the best result of wheeling for the tolling masses of the city 'iaust be logt. That result 'is that men who work in shops, offices and, factories, six days in the week go for a spin in "the country on-Sunday and come back healthier, bapgler and better men jaunt become fonargl fall this The failure of Gen. Weyler In Cuba has been more complete than tho failure of Gen. Campos, and has been more humiliating to Spain. He has not only failed to put down the insurrection, but he has failed to maintain decent order and discipline among his troops, and he has failed in his efforts to prevent any knowledge of the atrocities committed by them from being known and published to the But it Is to be presumed that Weyler will be retained, and that he will continue to permit his officers to murder unoffending citizens for showing lack of enthusiasm, so long as no protest comes from the Government of the United States.

THE SILVER CANDIDATES. -f (From the Chicago Record.) Mr. Boles's strength.

The fact is admitted that there arp few Democrats upon whom both the free-sliverites and the Populists, who hold, conventions In St. Louis In July, could more easily unite than on Gov. BoleSi He is also a man of Irreproachable character and' integrity, and while not a man of rea.t abilities or with large experience In public life; tie has more than average capacities. (From the Providence Journal.) Gov. Boles Is just now perhaps the most frequently mentioned of nil the candidates for the Democrat Presidential nomination, and yet only three years ago' he was defeated for the Governorship in Iowa by a plurality of morn thai. 32,000 votes. His nomination on a free-silver plattorm would Invite a yet greater national disaster to the Democratic party. (From the Chicago Tlmaa-llerald.) At present the Democrats who seem to have a fight- Ing chance for the nomination at Chicago are Horace Boles, of Iowa, William Morrison and Adlai Stevenson, of Illinois, and Silver DIek Bland, of Missouri, all of whom are willing to take the nomination on almost any old platform. Morrison's chances have been quickened by the report of a coalition with Altgeld; Botes's and the solid support of their respective States. (LoulflvlllQ 'Courier-Journal's Washington Letter.)
