THE 'G0tt» STANDARD, There seem to be two good and. sufficient objections to gold monometal- iem. In the .first place the supply of gold is not .sufficient to meet the demand, and the value of the dollar is constantly appreciating. In the second place the supply of gold is not sufficient to/sustain the vast amount of credit«ioney and bank credit which are needed for the transaction of business in the commercial nations of the world. There is plenty of dispute over both propositions but the weight of evidence is against the advocates of a Single gold standard. Statisticians of competent authority claim that since 1873, when silver was 'demonetized generally in Europe and in the United States, that the value of the gold dollar has been enhanced from 80 to 40 per cent. Such gold advocates as Edward Atkinson deny this and attribute the general decline in the prices of commodities to invention and cheaper methods of production. But Roswell G. Hor.r in his debate with Senator Stewart conceded an enhancement in gold values of a small per cent., and the majority of writers and public men admit that the gold dollar has been more or less increased in purchasing power since gold has been practically alone as the standard of value. This gradual enhancement in the value of gold brought about by the demands of commerce, which increase much more rapidly than'the mines can provide for. makes a single gold standard a continual worker against the debtor in favor of the creditor. It increases the value-of bonds, stocks, mortgages, salaries, .and debts of all kinds. It is this which makes creditors generally and creditor nations -favor it. England has forced otheivnations into adopting gold at untold advantage to herself, and but for her, gold an'd silver would today be money by international agreement. But bad as a.dollar which grows in ALOQfrA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AtTGtTOT 2, was United States alone, or a combination of the American states, can do this. The demonetization of silver- brought about unfairly, has ' done calculable mischief, and will continue to so long as adhered to, GUBERNATORIAL, GOSSIP. ^ The coming republican state convention will have no lack of available timber to choose from in nominating the head of the ticket. Already a half dozen candidates are announced and in each case there is some point of availability. .Farmer Coffin, who has considerable notoriety out of his coupler law and who in consequence is popular with till railway employes, is in the field from Fort Dodge. A second northern Iowa candidate is Col. E. S. Ormsby of Emmetsburg, also well and favorably known in this section, and the possessor of many elements of popularity. Ex-Auditor Lyons, Ex- Congressman Conger, Gen. Drake, and others from other sections have friends actively at work. But it seems to be generally conceded that at present the once take a leading position in that body. Mr. Smith of Wright, who has served during the past term, has been a very useful member, but no mention has been made a second term. If about his wishes as to he is not in the field the district cannot do better than select Mr. Chase, who is already recognized as one <of Iowa's leading young men, and who could render valuable service in the senate. won car Down at Dubuque a policeman arrested a :milk man who seenfed to he interfering with the Forepaugh circus parade. It turned out that the milkman was part of the parade, and the policeman don't enjoy 'hearing about the matter. choice lies between Frank D. Jackson. Lafe Young and Neither of these men aro candidates in the sense of having asked for a nomination or of having indicated more than a willingness to accept if chosen. Mr. Young is editor of one of the leading papers of the state and Mr. Jackson is president of a large insurance company, and both feel that the sixty days following the convention is all he can afford to devote to the canvass. Both are effective talkers, both have had the needed experience in public affairs, both are thoroughly acquainted with state politics, and the choice between them will undoubtedly be made with reference to the party attitude on the issues of the campaign. One element of strength which Mr. Young possesses over all his competitors is his personal popularity and acquaintance with the republican newspaper men of the state. It will cut some figure in the convention and would be a very important matter in the campaign. The general regard is voiced by Geo. E. Roberts in the Fort Dodge Messenger: " Hon. Lafayette Young is one of the best known public men in Iowa, and ono of the He began life as a printer's country paper, and identified with The Dubuque Tellegraph says': " Secre- 'tary Carlisle must have lost respoct for himself. But however this may'be, he has certainly lost the respect of the public." And then it attacks the great man himself as follows: "Democracy is not what it was in the '80s. In those days Jackson used the power of his office to defeat the selfish schemes of the money oligarchy. Today Cleveland employs the power of the same office to promote them." This iis a sample of democratic talk all over thecoun try. best liked. 'devil 1 on an Iowa may be said to have been 1 value is, that is not the chief objection to gold alone as primary money. Even if by some process the value of gold could be made stationary it would still be impracticable to rely on it alone. It forms too small a part of the money of the world. In the United States there was Jan. 1,1801, according to the director of the mint in round numbers $689,000,OOOofgold,$i3S,000,OOOofsilver, $432,000,tDOO of paper>not represented by the metals. 'The total is a billion and a half of money all of which thegovern- —jnent is keeping on a gold basis with a reserve of but §100,000,000. Gold does not furnish more than a third of the money of this country, while in the world at large there is now more silver than gold used as .money, although discriminated against. The total gold money of the world is only !S3;733,000,000, but little over twice as rnuoh as the money used by the United Stages alone. But in all the leading commercial nations of the world all the money in circulation is redeemable in gold and this is what makes the scramble for gold so intense. This scarcity of gold ;and the danger of an inflated currency based on it creates in times of business .(juiet a vast credit system by which business is transacted without money. This is what such writers as Edward Atkinson advocate, but the suddenness with which credit has collapsed in the past few months shows the danger of too great a volume of credit based on ,a limited money supply. The fact that the mere export of §100,000,000 of gold from the United States brings the whole credit system to a standstill and threatens the stability of the actual money of the country, shows the folly of this credit inflation.

He has been to the Iowa senate several times, and is now the proprietor and editor of the Iowa Capital, the leading republican evening paper of the state. He is genial and large-hearted, and he is able and level-headed. As a 'campaigner he is among the best in the state, for he is versatile, ready, broad-guaged and inspiring." During the past week F. R. Conaway of the Brooklyn Chronicle and secretary of the state republican league, has said: " ^afe Young hasn't said yet that he wanted the governorship. He would give us a rousing campaign should he be nominated. Ho is the best debater in the list and we'd like to see him in company with Gov. Boies on a joint debate." Secretary of State McFarland says that sentiment in Emmet is divided between Young and Lyons and adds: "I think Mr. Young would make as good a candidate and poll as many votes as anv man now in the field." The Eldora Herald voices the common expression of dozens of exchanges in the following: "Every editor in Iowa who is personally acquainted with the genial Lafe Young would esteem it a privilege to help Iowa for him this fall." W. O. Payne of the Nevada Representative is out as a condidate for the legislature from Story county. There is not a better posted man in Iowa on state and national politics nor one who could render better service at Des Moines. We hope that in the shuffle ho may win a nomination. Presiding Elder Cole said recently over at Spencer: "But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, editors included, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." For the benefit of Bro. Colo the State Register cites a passage of scripture which promises all sorts of plagues to any man who adds to the prophesies contained in the bible. For annexing " editors" to the bible list we judge that the militant pastor is doomed to a special spot in the lake. The river land cases are up again. A special government commissioner is at Des Moines to find out who have just claims. All who got title from the government and then lost the land will be Te-imbursed. The New York Sun cannot afford very consoling reading to its party these days. Here is a sample paragraph: "For fout- months a democratic administration has been in control at the national capital. Behind it has stood a party vehemently demanding the abolition of all protection and the reissue of state bank currency. The industries of the nation have taken alarm at the spectacle of their enemies in power. The free trade president has used the authority of his office not to protect, but to assail and ruin the business interests of the country. The result has been the obliteration of more than a billion of dollars in the value of property held by American citizens." ly for Bestow, Bolter, or any other man of known ability who regards license as the proper means to regulate the liquor traffic, as they four years ago scratched for Boies, then a comparatively unknown lawyer bf Iowa. When it comes to pass that Iowa democracy must do so and so or be defeated; let us do something else and see what will be the effect." IF THIS HEIGHBOBHOOD.

Gov. Boies has removed Warden McMillan at the Fort Madison penitentiary and appointed his first assistant, Beard, in his place. The investigating committee found that a system of over charges for time had prevailed. The warden explained that the amount so obtained had gone for incidental expenses of which no account is made. The governor agreed that Mr. McMillan had not profited any himself, but removed him on the advice of the attorney general.

Prof. Davidson of Lstherville is to be one of the instructors at Algona. Britt Tribune: Uncle Tom's Cabin was rendered to a good audience in a tent Tuesday evening by Glenford's company. Those present report a splendid rendition,of that famous melodrama Under date of July 11 Senator W. B. Allison writes a letter to J. Fred Meyers on the financial situation. It is as follows: I have your very interesting letter, found on my return from a visit to the fair. I have read your letter with very great interest and am glad you are giving attention to the monetary question. This is certainly the most important question the .people of the United States have to deal with, as it relates to every person in our country, or having dealings with our people. There is a school of statesmen and publicists in our country who desire to force us to a single gold standard. I agree .with you that that ought not to be done. There is not enough silver in the world nor enough gold to singly constitute the basis of the world's transactions in measurement and in exchange, unless the two metals are united in some form as they have been for thousands of years, This can only be done by a fixed ratio. It is curious that these motals have fluctuated more in a single day in July than they have in three thousand years before. What is it that has caused this fluctuation? It is not because of the excessive supply of silver, but because of the belief that in some way siver will be discarded as money. I believe that the government makes a mistake in purchasing silver bullion and storing it, and have always so believed. I think all such silver should be coined as money, unless purchased by international agreement. In that case there should be places of storage at great money centers for both silver and gold, and international paper money issued upon such deposits which could be transferred in settling international balances without the actual transfer of the bullion. I agree with you that the democrats now having power are responsible to the country and that they should formulate the measures of public policy which they promised in their platform. every day. How is it possible to do this, measuring silver in gold? Therefore a ratio is essential. Secretary Wihdom, you will remember, had a scheme whereby the government could receive bullion and issue' paper money thereon and then redeem these paper issues in silver bullion at the current price, or in gold. 'The effect of that I think would be to greatly depreciate silver, because there Would be an accumulation of bullion through redemption always coming in competition with the production of the mines instead of having as we have now probably only three or four million ounces of bullion in the market. As we accumulate bullion we might have one hundred million ounces on the market constantly, which would surely depreciate the whole mass. If the government now should redeem the treasury notes in silver bullion at the price of bullion today, in gold, what would be done with that bullion? It would so upon the market in competition with the bullion produced from the mines « and the two sources of supply operating 1 upon each other would tend to constant depreciation and the wildest speculation. Ain I not right in this? And it was for this reason that I did not favor the scheme or plan of redeeming promises of the government in a commodity —silver bullion— which commodity is constantly bought and sold in the mar- KtsUi All those plans are experimental and as I have already said may not work as I think they would, but we know from seventy years of experience that a fixed ratio practically adopted by the commercial world will keep the metals at a iTO'u 1 " X alua Therefore I believe that the only solution to the question is an agreement as respects the ratio between those _ commercial nations that settle from time to time the balances of the world's exchanges. n, 1 ^! 111 * ? no thin £ is cleiu % that the democrats cannot that is formulate The Gate City still insists that all the silver money could be thrown into the sea and the prices of commodities not be affected. As its proposition goes to the root of the money question we shall consider it next week. In the meantime we would call attention to that sentence in Senator Allison's letter in which he.asserts that if our silver bullion is sold and silver coin melted down that there " will be a fall of prices to an extent heretofore unknown." admitted by all to be totally inadequate to the demands of business. Too much money redeemable in gold is dangerous. And with business done on credit without actual money it seems ineviota- ble that panics will come oftener us the volume of transactions increases, and as the movements of the gold supply are more closely watched. For in the end money and not credit is the legal tender, and every debt must be paid in dollars when they are demanded. When the gold advocates claim that there is danger that the United States cannot maintain its present money supply on a gold basis and add 50,000,000 a year to it, it becomes plainly apparent that the expansion of business on credit is nothing but card house building to bo collapsed whenever by manipulation or by the scramble of nations, a slight change in the location of the gold supply occurs. Whatever the solution of the present money problem may be, it does not lie in the direction of the single gold standard. Inter-national agreement on a ratio between gold and silver would A TEMPERANCE PLANK. The Iowa City Republican has a temperance plank which is being discussed: "The republican party of Iowa, endors- g the republican national platform adont- ing tne republican national platform adopted at Minneapolis, Juno 9, 1893, 'sympa- times with all wise and legitimate efforts w lessen and prevent the evils of intemner- .ence and promote morality,' and reaffirms its former declarations for the suppression of the lawless saloon, believing also that the voters of Iowa at a non-partisan elec- opportunity to " 1 ~~'~- constitutional MOINES can it better in fur- less tion should have an whetlier or not they prohibition." THE UPPER DES nish ono that suits words: The republican party of Iowa is opposed to the saloon system, and in favor of the impartial enforcement of all laws To these ends it pledges itself. Lafe Young says: "A subscriber writes to find out what will cure foot rot in sheep; another wants to know the best thing to kill potato bugs. Tho only reply that we can make is, try the democratic party. It has been found to kill almost everything else." Gov. Waite of Colorado has kicked a reporter out of his office. That is probably the beginning of his campaign of "blood to the bridle." Such men as Waite generally begin their revolutions by killing off intelligent newspaper discussion, Gov. Boies is reported to have said that he would not be a candidate this fall for anything. But his interview 'hardly bears thatout. What he said was: "Whileitis gratifying to me to be mentioned in such a complimentary way, I assure you I will not be a candidate.

Without comparison the parts were well sustained. The band discoursed some excellent music in the afternoon. A number of the musicians accompanying the troupe are first-class. Hancock Signal: A strange disease has broken out among the cattle of Mr Paulson, living near Ellington, which thus far seems to baffle science, at least to find a remedy. Dr. Sayers, assistant state veterinarian, of Algona was called.and pronounced the disease congestion of the brain and said it caused from drinking slough water.

It is undoubtedly a good plan. was let when it comes to the question of money it is important to all tho people that if any republican, or all the republicans, can contribute to a wise solution of our present difficulties, he or they should do so. I am willing to vote to stop the purchase of silver, leaving 1 other questions to be settled later on mature consideration and comparison of views, as the whole subject must be dealt with presently. I see no way of habilitating silver except through international agreement and I believe it is possible to secure it when the nations come to realize the full effect of the demonetization of silver. The action of India and our own if we cease purchases of silver, will soon make this appear. You must bear in mind that although silver bullion measured in gold has gradually depreciated since 1803, as a matter of fact all the silver except a few million ounces IB in some form still engaged in the exchanges and in tho measurement of values. The real trouble will come when silver shall be discarded as money, when tho plan proposed bv Mi- Henderson of Missouri shall bo adopted, viz: the plan of selling our silver bullion and melting up our silver coins, there will be a fall of prices to an extent heretofore unknown. If we cannot secure an international agreement respecting silver, then it may be worth while for us to considei the question of changing from a gold to a silver standard upon some ratio fixed by ourselves.
