Secretary Morton Keplies to James A, Cherry's Letter on Silver, Senator Stewart Indites Another Open Letter to President Cleveland—Is Sarcastic. WASHINGTON, May 8.—Secretary Morton has written a letter to James A. Cherry, of Denver, in reply to a letter from that gentleman criticising some statements in the interview with the secretary of agriculture printed a couple of weeks apo which caused so much comment. The letter is as follows: "It appears you »nd I perfectly agree on the fundamental point—namely; that demand and supply Inexorably regulate all valuables whatsoever, at all times and In all places. You assume certain propositions to be true of silver, which are not historically true at all, but <iuuo the re- verso of truo. You say, for Instance, 'until 1873 the chief uso of silver was for coinage. It had other uses, but the demand for It fur coinage purposes was steady and constant' On this point you have been monstrously misinformed. Tho first federal coins of silver were minted in I7B4 und of gold, in 1705. Their ratio to gold, as recommended by Secretary Alexander Hamilton and fixed by act of congress, was 15 to 1. It was hoped thus to keep tho two metals In equlllbrlo iu the coinage. But they would not even come into equilibrium in that ratio, still less would they stay there. "What was the matter with those sllvor dollars? Nothing; only they were too valuable. Tho coinage of silver dollars, authoritatively suspended at the American mint in 1805, was not resumed there for thirty years. In. these {ow facts, -which are odelalanauuqucsUonablo, behold tho beauties and advantages of a double standard! Of two yardsticks of different lengths to measure cloth by In tho same market. "In the second plaoo, Mr. Cherry, as an In- (itanoe of an historical assumption contrary to facts and natural Inference, allow mo respectfully to call your attention to tho use, In common with many of the blmetallists, so called, of tho date of 1673, as the time of tho 'demonetization of silver.' Unless I am mistaken tho silver dollar Is not men tlonod at all, one way or the other, In the »ct of 1S73. All the demonetization of silver us I understand It, that ever oamo about in this country happened in tho law of 1S5SI. after open and full discussion. and practically with unanimity, when congress introduced tho subsidiary silver coinage, of which a nominal Collar's worth weighed 0.01 per cent, less than tho sllvor dollar and also took away iho legal-tor-dor quality of nil silver In payment of debts of over five dollars In umount. Jfo Demand for Silver. "You us',:, 'Wliat oreatBS demand?' and an- swer,'USD.' I ask in my turn, what creates 'uso?' and answer, 'demand.' Why is it there is so llttlo 'uso' of silver dollars in this country to-day while tacro are millions upou millions of them lying idle? I answer confidently because there Is no adoQuate 'demand' for thorn. Have you not innocently, but badly mixed up 'cause' and 'cilect' In this case? You have helplessly P'Jt the cart beforo the liorso. "\Vhut is tho sense of clamor- Ing still for 'unlimited coinage' when the treasury cannot got rid by hook or by oroolc of a tithe of those already coliied and lying la useless heaps? They are well minted, of just weight, nine-tenths lino, are legal ten- dor for all debts, and boar the legend: 'In God We Trust.' What ails them? I answer, and HO must you, on reflection, there is no 'demand' for thorn and thoroforo no 'use' of them. What more can tho law tlo for them? "Mr, Eckels, tho present comptroller of the currency, has mudo It by careful inquiries Instituted through this department that about 60 per cent, of the retail business of tbla country lb achieved by moans ot chocks drawn on local banks and cleared by the banks with very little uso of coins. The relative employment 'of thcso Instru- jnonts of credit Is constantly increasing, through tho multiplication of banks and otherwise, and, of course, also, the quantity of coin money required to do tho business of tho world or of any advanced country in tho world, is steadily decreasing relatively to the business done." HE IS SAKCASTIC. Senator Stewart Writes »u Open Lcttnr to the President. WASHINGTON, Way 8.—For a third time within a very brief period United States Senator William M. Stewart, of Nevada, has felt called upon to indite tin open letter to President Cleveland. It bears date of Tuesday and has for its inspiration the recent letter of the president to Gov. Stone, of Mississippi, which the Senator in the very first words of his last epistle characterizes as "admirable," and as wholly exonerating the president from "all suspicion of shirking" from his plain constitutional duty of personal participation, as the senator writes, "in the political contro-. versies which agitate the people." "Yonr treatment of contumacious officeholders," he continues, "illustrates the benefit of civil service reform when you tell them that in the interest of good government officeholders must not be surprised if they are summarily dealt with. The senator quotes from the. letter of the president and comments liberally on each sentence or paragraph quoted, and the criticism attending it is fraught with an application of Senator Stewarts views on the silver question. Tho reference in the letter to Gov. Stone to the willingness of the southern people to submit to the disadvantage of silver monometallism, etc.', leads the senator to remark, "the originality of your discovery that tho south favors silver monometallism, when they only contend for the coinage of silver upon the terms and conditions applicable to the coinage of gold, can never be questioned," and he supposes the president will explain in his "nest letter why free coinage of gold'and the refusal to coin silver is bimetallism, and the unrestricted coinage of both gold and silver ia silver monometallism." _jrhe senator lilw joaotei froni th_e ' I ' " ' "Chicago letter" of the president in which occur* the sentence, "let us remind him that he must buy as well as sell; that his dreams of plenty are shaded by the certainty that if the price of things he has to sell is nominally enhanced, the cost of things he must buy will not remain stationary." The comment upon this is in every line consistent with the sarcastic spirit that has animated the previous "open letters" of the senator, rind among the expressions used in referring to it is the suggestion: "Tho discovery you have made that the sales and purchases of the farmers and planters in a cheap gold market exactly balance each other and that what is lost by the low price of sales is grained by the low price of purchases solves the question and shows your full comprehension of all tho principles of economic science." The sentence furnishes a theme for a rather extended commentary upon the president's views upon tho money question and branching off into a reference to the field of "gold monometallism originally discovered by tho senator from Ohio(Mr.Sherraan)"continues with the remark, "the honor and advantages of gold monometallism exclusively belongs to tho republican party under the Ic.idarship of Wall and Lombard streets until you led tho scattered forces of demociacy out of the wilderness of financial absurdities taught by Jefferson and his deluded associates." The senator concludes by writing: "Fear not. Tho Harrisons, the Shermans, tho Kocfls and tho JlcKlnlnyi; will never bi) ub!o to rally the goldltes of the republican sltlo to moot tho tfold forcws commanded by you In tho contest you have Inaugurated for Iho honor und emoluments of sound tnonoy, safe currency and civil servloo reform. Their Indirect methods served well In tho past while socrucy was tho road to success, but will Mil in the conflict now raptlnp wtllo the mighty gold forces uive battle in view of ill men where the timid timeservers never appear. Tho hereditary rights of tho descondonts of fihylock lire Bnfo In your hands. Your decree of low prices und less ffOH for those who produce, and more givin and loss sacrifice for-thosa who absorb will be executed, by tho power you command, while tho trimmers and. dodgers of the republican fold are confounded and paralyzed by your boldness and dasn." GOV. TURNEY INAUGURATED. Republican Mombors of LOBinlature Spend the l>ny with Hon. II. C. Kvans. ST. Louis,' May 8.—A special from Nashville, Tenn.; to tho Chronicle says that Gov. Peter Turnoy was inaugurated Wednesday at noon, the ceremonies taking place in the hall of the house of representatives in the presence of a. very large throng. The republican members of the legislature were not present. They took the. morning train for Chattanooga, having decided to spend .the day with Hon. E. C. Evans, the contestee for the governorship. After .music had been rendered, the inauguration programme was proceeded with, and Gov. Turney took the oath of Office. ' SAME MALADY AS ELAINE'S. Svcretury Gr«»h»m Suffering S*rl»u8ly from Stomach Troublei. WASHINGTON, May 8,—Dr. W. G. Johnston, the physician who is attending Secretary Gresham, has discovered that the latter's symptoms are almost identical with those from which Secretary Blaine suffered for many- years prior to his fatal illness.
