Nearly every. ?' that has been «afd since, either "for or against,the paper dollar, was said then, but memories are abort and each generation has a new tilt at it* The experience of the fathers with paper money was not wholly pleasing, * IB consequence tbe right to "emit bills of credit" was distinctly and by a de- ciaivevote dropped out of tbe list of congressional prerogatives. Daniel Webster and nearly all authorities until 1861 held that this took from con- greaa all right to issue a paper legal .tender. At least until 1861 no one seriously attempted to exercise any such right. The government at various times Issued an interest bearing treas- , ury note, good for public dues and tax. es, but not good in payment of ordinary , debts. During the war of 1812 and up 'to 1815, $38,680,794 of auch notes were issued at various rates of interest. During tbe panic of 1837 the treasury again demanded a loan and up to 1844, $47,002,900 were issued. During tbe Mexi- , can war in 1837 another issue of treasury notes followed and a hill authorizing tbe issue of $28,000,000 was passed in congress. The fourth issue came in the panic of 1857 and 120,000,000 of ; treasury notes were again sent out. By 1860 nearly all tbe notes of issues previous to 1857 bad been cancelled, . and the total outstanding was less than twenty millions. Each of these four Issues,bad been .attended with vigorous opposition and learned expositions of the constitution, each issue having * features peculiar to itself, hut in none of them wasjthere any- serious attempt to make the government notes money or legal tender for debt. They were merely interest bearing notes. "' ij-Tbe-beginning-of tbe war marked a t government expenditure on a larger scale than these previous events had ^.'.required. Treasury notes of tbe usual JEcind werelssued and money was bor- $ rowed for awhile. But the money sup* ply was wholly inadequate and something that would pass for money bad to be bad. Secretary Chase then recora- i mended tbe greenback, a treasury note good for debts public and private except interest on the public debt and duties on imports, and exchangeable lor 8 per cent, bonds. The debate >; whjcb followed covered tbe whole field ! of congress' right to issue paper money and the bill was passed as a war meas- are/ In the house Roscoe Confcling was among the opponents. In the senate John Sherman was an advocate of Jt. The bill was signed by President «I4ncoln Feb. -24, 1862, and tbe first greenbacks were issued March 10. : The total issue of greenbacks was •$448,338,900. In 1865, the war being Over, Secretary McCulloch sought to 'have them cancelled and congress au- bira to call in $10,000,000 the months and $4,000,000 a month : 4fcereaCter from the date of tbe bill, i .tffldertbls act be cot tbe total to 856 pjj}fpn3 before congress in February, J868, ordered tbe cancellation stopped.

In 1878 Secretary Sherman ancceaafolly engineered tbe resumption of gold payments, and congreaa ordered that 1100,000,000 of gold be held In reserve with which to redeem the greenbacks whenever they should be presented, and that in case of a raft on this reserve bonds should be issued to maintain It, It ia this gold reserve that ia so much discussed at present, and It !s trader this authority that the Cleveland administration baa sold bonda the past year, nominally to protect tbe greenbacks, but in reality to get money to make up tbe deficit caused by want of revenue. Since 1878 tbe greenback has given us about one-fourth of our currency, it has been tbe popular money, it has been at par, it ia dear to the hearts of tbe voters, and in the present case for i cancellation entitled G, Cleveland vs. Greenback, it will be the former who will be cancelled just as quickly as the people can get at him with tbe stamp of vigorous disapproval. Britt THE republican national convention ia to be held at St. Louia, June 16,1896, It was settled yesterday. The contest was between St. Louia and San Francisco, HEWS AITD OOMMEFT. Congressman Dolliver joins a number of leading congressmen in discussing the work of the present congress In tbe North American Review. H!s contribution to the symposium is in his best vein. A few characteristic sentences are; '*No possible system of currency can hold out long against a shortage of revenues and an increasing adverse trade balance." " This nation has grown accustomed to a statesmanship that is able to prevent the disease as well as to recognize and trace the symptoms." , "The American dollar must be as national as the American flag." "Tbe republican party being in no position to pot any scheme of partisan legislation entirely through cannot be expected to spend the winter splashing in the. water." Mr. Doiliver speaks of state banks as "the half forgotten promissory note factories of the last generation" and concludes by the suggestion that it is not the prospect of republican legislation this winter but the assurance that the democrats can do nothing that is causing a grateful sensation. . * # * , .'••',' • • , ,The Port Dodge Messenger thinks that If breweries were legalized the final complaint against oqr liquor laws would be silenced. On the contrary: it seems that changes in the present status would only be began. Here is the Odebolt Chronicle, an able and representative paper of this section, demanding almost frantically that the 03 per cent, feature of the mulct petition be cut off this winter and the Sioux City Journal endorses its plea, Tbe Chronicle refers to tbe 65 per cent, clause as " the infamous Allen amendment" and the Journal says : "There are some minor points io the liquor law that ought to be amended, such as the point of majority rule ia all counties alike." Let no one deceive himself into believing that the present mulct law is to be accepted as a final settlement. The republican state convention barely escaped an open raid on it and tbe coming legislature will not escape it, * * # Henry Watterson baa been lecturing at Carroll and In conversation with J. B. Hnngerford of tbe Herald he talkedof Iowa congressmen. " You hare one man from Iowa that I have observed with much satisfaction," said he, "He is a southerner by birth and we take pride in his growth and increasing usefulness. I refer to Mr. Dolliver." On being told that he was speaking to ope of Mr. DolJlver's constituents, Col. Watterson said: «>Let me tell yott that this district ought to keep* Dolliver in congress, $pman cs^n ,aeeo,«pj}fth .much for bis people in one, two or three short terms in copgress^ Keep that ftbje member of Jn'congBesa for |ije next few year? on; wfttt» proud of Ttfnj and tbe nation will know him and value his services* j W, $r<Mey 01 Wetxjter-Cjty a. canjWaJe to succeed Wfa&efl Madden in tbe Aflamos^pfD.ltejjyary. , £01, "— ' - was ' »*i!«y says that tbe .... *y» is nothing- trot " Wtttef greased a - J " ---"""li8feL» Tribtjfte: AfgUto is "fit H" That fit itit tbe great state normal school fight tbat Ia coming thfa winter.

Whittemore Champion: He baa been a prominent business man of Algona for many years and his loss will be regretted by all. • Wealey Reporter: Mr. Wilson's tragic death was quite a surprise to this community, especially among our older citizens, who had been intimately acquainted with him in tbe early days and who loved and admired him for bis manly worth, Emmetsburg Tribune: J, J.

Ail old settters will be interested in tbe follow' ing sketch of the son of John Magoon, wbicb with A portrait appears in the Honolulu Commercial Advertiser of Nov. 4: J. Alfred Magoon has been selected by the executive to fill tbe vacancy caused by tbe appointment of Judge H. E. Cooper to tbe poat of minister of foreign affairs. Judge Magoon la one of the beat known of the young men practicing at the bar. He ia thorough' ty versed in laws and there seems to be no doubt of bis ability to fill tbe poai- tion impartially and with becoming dignity. Judge Magoon was born in Algona, Kossuth county, Iowa, July 22, 1858, but soon ble family moved back to their old home in Maine and Alfred bad an opportunity to take coasters down the highest hills in the vicinity of bia home every winter during the next nine years. But bis father was then a young man and California offered greater inducements to him than did Maine, and b'e moved out there and the young man was placed in Heald's business college, remaining there until 1874, when he was graduated. He entered mercantile life immediately, filling the poai- tion of bookkeeper with aeveral well known firms. He was engaged for a time in tbe office of tbe Santa Rosa Democrat, where he learned the "art preservative." His parents moved to Honolulu in 1876, and their son joined them shortly afterward and secured a poaition as bookkeeper on the Halstead plantation at Waialua, on this island. It was during this engagement tbat be decided to adopt law as a profession, and spent what spare time he bad from bis books in reading Blackatone and Cbitty. He remained on tbe plantation for a year and then entered the office of Benj. H, Austin, t where he remained for a year, when his straitened finances compelled him to abandon it for the more lucrative' poaition of deputy sheriff at Makawao, Maui, He afterwards resigned and took tbe position of bookkeeper at Paia Mill, and pursued bis study of the law as .the opportunity was offered. In 1883 tie resigned and went to Ann Arbor'.university, where he took a,.law course. Upon his graduation two years later ;he ; returned to Honolulu and was-admitted to the bar. He has, perhaps,. the largest practice of any of-the'members of the Honolulu bar, and it was this fact that compelled him to refuse the judgesbip wben he was first called upon to take it.
