Baldwin Shows up Unsound Arguments. ist lidiiur .lournal: One ol! the mo plausible of all the free silver fallacic iitiw afloat is tliis: "If the United State mints ave thrown open lo tree coiuajir of .silver (just a.-i they are now to sold and any man can -take hits silver, m>« win-ill "jO cent; 1 , on the.dollar to them ami set it coined into a dollar, that thit process alone will make every iW eiMit.- of bullion »o coined worth 100 cents." Stated more largely'the argument I?: -t'iive its I'Vee coiniiffo a.nd the world's silver will .insle.-ul of its now bcinj; wuL-ih only 5(.i cents on the dollar, go a; once to par." The illustration is sriven: Suppose- the United States should buy wheat a-ud pay $1.00 per bushel, how luiifc would wheat eft ay at 50 cculs, Its present price? Or, suppose a Logansport inereliii'iit should pay 2,1 cents a tloxL'ii for ejrgs, would not that fact, il he had the money lo keep this ofl'ei -ood..douhle the present price of eggs- It certainly would, but th-e trouble is that .in the case of free coiiingo tin 1 United States government buys nothing. It only certlfles that _the Ii-ti.Ic round disk of silver so coined is one dollar, and tlwn returns It to the bullion bi-.ln-KCi'. That'is not like the case of the merchant buying eggs or the United States buying 50-cenl wheat and paying one dollar a bushel. - Nothing of the kind. It is a ease of certification, not of purchase. What makes the dollar of today which contains only'50-ceJits. worth of sllvet do the work of. 100. cents of -silver? It i because the government supplies the lacking 50 cento of bullion In our sllv.ci dollars'by its policy of redeeming the dollar In gold. Withdraw that policy (and that is what free coinage means) and the dollar o£ today would be worth only the silver; bullion that -is in It, Putting 50 cents worth of silwu- In a dollar and then calling It a dollar (and that .is all there (» to free coinage) won't make it Into 100 cents any more'than putting two pints in a measure and call ing It a gallon ma.kes it four quarts. The whole mistake 'grows out of the fact that under our present currency laws the -United States supplies throughiits redemption in gold the 50 cents of silver which Is lacking In our cart wheel'dol- lars. Abolish that redemption In gold and you can no more innkc ">0 cents Into 100 cents by calling it a dollar than yon can-make IS inches a yard by calling it a yard. ' , , , Docs 't.he reader suppose that this kindly act of Uncle Sam iu supplying •the lacking silver In- our dollars costs nothing? Then you lfciv.e been asleep for. the hist tli'vce years. The government -has had to borrow $205,000,000 and issue Its bonds therefor to make good this shortage of bullion In our silver dollars. Kather than let the laboring man and the farmer lose, by our bobtalled 50- ceiit dollars 'now In circulation, Uncle Sam has issued $205,000,000 of bonds. But if free coinage prevails, then everybody who holds or takes his pay In sil- ver'must stand the loss of the 50 cents not in th'e dollar which the government now-makes good lo him 'through its device of gold -redemption. T.l>c truth about, free coinage. Is that it is a project to flood the country with rotten dollars, with-a legal tender attachment which will wreck every bank and debtor.- in'the United States. How will it affect the laborer? A little anecdote will show. There was once a poor man who had a cur dog which was ent- ing ltd 'hoad off.' So as to save expense, he. traded2off the dog for six half-grown pups, and wondered that times nt his house wa* so hard, nud wha.t became oC all his 1 victuals. Sec! D. P: BALDWIN.

' ', Lon Saxon Captured in Chicago and Returned Here.. HAS NOTHING TO SAY Dripped'-'His Mustache, But Tis , Just the Same. w Lou, Slaxjjn, who is charged-with hav- . lpg"'Ciiniiityilly nssau.l-i.cd, beaten am' ''i-ob'befl Alis^ Florence Moreton in thi 'city last Sunday afternoon, was arresl- ;.<>d-yesterday ufteruoou in Chicago, returned jo, Lcjgansport-lute morning at 12:40'on t'ra.in No. 10, and was taken to the county jail at once and given quarters in the wamsiu's-'dcpartmont, away from the common herd of criminals. The news that Saxon had been taken was'received by Sheriff-Adams iu the following telegram: •"Ciiiciigo, 7-10, :}:0-1- p. in. "John G. Gallagher, Logansport. ••Inform Sheriff Adams that I have l',on Saxon in custody. I. got him on Michigan avenue at ~ p. m. Will arrive on No. 10 tonight. "M. V. Bradley." It was noised about the streets early In thp evening yesterday that Detective Bradley would arrive with the prisoner 0:1 the train that reaches Logausport at 7:20 in the evening, and there was a cro\Yd of fn-Ily thn-e hundred -people at 'the st.-itiuii when rho train pulled in i.o.greet the officer and his charge, but they failed lo arrive. The presence of .inch a number it't tlie train caused Sheriff Adams to fear that there m-i;. po.'viibly lie trouble in store when the alleged 'r.-ipis'," did arrive, and a-close waifh \viis kept ou the final! knots ami groups of men gathered on the streets during'-rlie evening, to learn if there was ini.v plan afoot 10 take the prisonc from the ollicurs: There were many ng l.v-remarks heard, but as the evening wore on riie apprehension of violence was qnieled and a plain to take Saxon from the train at Royal • Center and drive him across country to Monticello for safe keeping., was abandoned, us was another by which it was arranged to-have the train stop at tlie Vaudalia •cross!iig ; on tlie We^tside. and let the . officers''ar.i.l their prisoner off, thence bringing him to the jail in a closed carriage. When the Chicago train pulled into the-station at 12:40 there was a crowd of probably one hundred waiting to catelr'ir glimpse of the prisoner and Ills guards;'but Capr. Bradley and De- tecMve Dwyer, who had him in charge, were too smooth for them. They were on-the rear sleeper and when die train .stopped tlie rear platform WHS on the crossing of Third street, and the de- 'tecl.ives, with Saxon handcuffed to Dwyer.Mmrriod up.Third' street and were .iu-the jail office before the crowd know that It had been fooled. At the jail Sax-oii was searched be- -llore bt'iiig taken upstairs a-ud every- .thing-lid'hail-in ills pockets was taken from him,- with the exception of a.pock- «t'hand-kerchief and a comb. Hi<s face wore -nil ugly sneer while the officers were turning his pockets Inslde'out, and he' opened his lips but once while under- .golu'g the; operation, asking that he be allowed-to keep the comb. His appearance has' hot changed materially since his.'hurtled departure from Logausport. •He- lias had his upper lip shorn of the slight- iriristache that adorned it, but anyone-'who knew Lon Saxon would have-little difficulty in recognizing him, even with tlie mustache away. He wore a-blsk-k soft hat, black cloth trousers, -wlth'sack coat of the same material. A pair of -new tan shoes covered his feet and a negligee shirt with a four-in-hand tie-completed his attire. Never very handsome at best, he was.less so under thri-glfire of the electric light in the little jail office. If he felt any nervons- •ness it was not apparent, except in the eagerness'with which he followed the turnkey-to his cell. O.f the crowd of a hundred or more which followed to the jail doors; no one was admitted except the'officers and a Journal representative. Saxon looked about over the group of'officers'and his scowl deepened. i-Ie was not very favorably impressed with- their looks evidently. . • An attempt was made by The Journal reporter'-to ga.la an interview with tlie prisoner, but Sheriff Adams refused to let-'him be talked to, and will enforce this rule against all. The story of Saxon's capture shows a very shrewd bit of work ou the part' of Sheriff 'Adams.'. That official went to work on the case as soon as he was convinced' tba-t Saxon was out of reach of the police, and by means- of a letter tvhich was-sent to Saxon by liis sweetheart, a".-M&s 'Daggett, of this city, his whereabout'were learned. The sheriff communicated with Chief of Panhandle Detectives Bradley at Chicago, Wednes- day'evening, as sooiijis the destination of the letter' mailed'by Miss Daggett wa<r v learned:'' ' Capt Bradley, who knew s'axoh : ''sl.lgh:t]y, picked him up ,-it the corner of Michigan avenue ,and Athims'street yesterday afternoon, at 2 o'clock: It was a good piece of .work on the part of the Sheriff and Detective BradleyV and the other officials of the ''•"'":': OF ALL THE PANTS DOWN SALES that Harry Frank has ever originated and carried out, this one will surpass and will positively be our Farewell Pants Down Sale.

HARRY FRANK 313 Fourth Street/ I'auhandJo lent every aid to the capture by transmitting messages to all stations along the line, giving a description of Saxon and asking that a-ny information of his presence at any place on the road be telegraphed to tills city at once. The crime which Saxon, stands charged with committing, or rather the triple crime, i-s for assault and battery, atempted rape, and robbery. His victim is still a guest of Sheriff Adams, whether she will or -no, and will be held as a witness against Saxon, who will probably have a preliminary trial today. Conviction on tin: charge of attempted rape moans a.sent-ouce of not more than fourteen years, and he may be convicted on all three, charges and given enoughs-care to make him white-headed before- ho lias served ihem all. lie is about twenty-eight years of age and lias been, in the employ of the Panhandle railway as a brakeman for some years. While his record heretofore ha riot been of tlic bast, he was not considered an especially da-ugerous man ex cept while drinking,, when he became abusive and quarrelsome. It is not at all certain'that the story a# told by Miss 'Moreton will not be contradicted iu some of its essential parts when the other side of the tale is told.

Marshal Ab Holmes, of Cayuga/Ver- mllHon county, was shot and instantly killed Tuesday afternoon about 1 o'clock by Alf Campbell. From the facts learned in the case the murder must have been a most atrocious and cold-blooded affair., Campbell Had been drinking excessively, and was raising a disturbance in Groeudyke's store. He had tipped over a box of vegetables on the porch in front of .the ' store, and wlieu Marshal Holmes attempted to arrest him, Campbell pulled- a. revolver from his jwcket and shot Holmes. The bullet,entered his abdomen anil caused instant death'. Campbell fled immediately after the shooting and was pursued by a posse of enraged citizens. The last seen of the murderer he was swim- Ing across the Wabasii river. . WAGES HERE AND THERE.
