FREE SILVER, CONfllADICTiONS. Tile Courier had two remarkable editorials last week, one on paying the national debt In silver and one on the alleged inconsistency of THE UPPER DEB MOINES as an advocate of bimetallism, In the course of the two It managed to furnish a most excellent Illustration of how absurd and contradictory a free silverfte can be without knowing it. It is little Wonder that the hard business sense of the country is becoming reconciled to the prospect of a gold money system. Another campaign of flatism, unsound money, and claptrap such as was outlined in the senate last week, and as the Courier endorses, will settle the whole question. Consider the Courier's argument for paying the national debt in silver. At the outset it says: " In private life would any man be called dishonest who would pay according to contract? Would not Cleveland, McKinley, or any other instrument of tho money power pay his private obligations in tho most advantageous way to himself, when by doing so he was living up to his well-understood contract? Why then should a nation do more? All the earlier bonds wore paid for by their purchasers in greenbacks that were worth but about 50 cents on tho dollar in gold." Now if this means anything it means that tho national debt was contracted in cheaper money than gold is now, and in justice should be paid in cheaper money, that is in silver at its bullion yalue. This is the honest yiew of a great many honest men. They say that the present value of silver bullion is the honest measure of values and that to pay tho national debt in more . is to rob the taxpayer for tbe benefit of the bondholder. They favor paying out the silver dollar and letting it shift for itself. If it comes to 40 cents in gold actual justice will result. But the Courier having planted itself firmly with the honest advocates of free silver, for a cheap dollar, concludes its argument as follows: "To pay the bonds in silver would not be adopting the silver standard, nor adopting free coinage, nor would it bo repudiating anything, even in the sense that gold-bugs use the word repudiation. Our silver dollars are as good as gold dollars." Now if the silver dollars are as good as the gold dollars, what difference does it make to the taxpayers which is paid out? How are the people getting even with the bond holders by paying silver, if it is to be kept at a gold standard? What possible interest does a single man in Kossuth county have in the kind of money that is paid at Washington, provided every dollar is as good as every other dollar? To merely ask tho question is to show the absurdity of tho argument. The only reason anyone wants silver paid on the government bonds is in the hope that silver will become a cheaper dollar than the gold dollar, and when the Courier boasts of the parity that now exists it is giving away the whole case of its friends. The Courier is in the same muddled condition about the single and double standard of values. Its quotations above illustrate this also, and show how readily it gets at issue with itself, being on both sides of the same question at the same time without knowing it. The honest free silveritos believe in a double standard. They believe in a gold dollar and a silver dollar, to be equal in value if so happens and to be unequal if so happens, the feature of their theory being that the debtor can always pay in the cheaper dollar, thus by not using the dearer dollar reducing its value and again producing an equilibrium. They believe that if our .silver dollar should now circulate at its bullion value the country would be benefitted, the debtor done full justice, and prosperity restored. No honest double standard man puts any special stress upon keeping the gold dollar and silver dollar equal. Everyone of them is opposed to having the government maintain the silver dollar at a par with gold by direct act of legislation. They opposed the redemption of greenbacks in gold in 1878, and they now oppose maintaining the silver dollar at a par with gold by paying out gold on demand. But the Courier, having presented the claims of these in its opening paragraph, proceeds in the closing paragraph to boast of the republican idea Of a parity, and thereby to commend the single standard, which is, as long as gold is the dear metal, the gold standard. Just as long as it Is the policy o this government to maintain all itsdol Jars equal with each other, just so long It will have a single standard of value Jt may use silver, gold, and paper, it have free coinage or limited coin, but it wjll have a single standard and that standard will be the dollar that for .any reason is the most desjra- • Jde 494 the most valuable. Bimetall -4?m. me v an,s the use of two metals, and «ot the use of two standards. It is a i confusion of terms to confound a ! jsetaUio-Bjowy with. aM and the advocates of republican bimetallism is as wide as the difference between the advocates of an it-redeemable paper money and the advocates of a metallic money.* THE UPPER DES MOINES devotes thus much space to the Courier's statements not because they are unusual, for they are not. The same lack of understanding of the real meaning of terms is manifest every day. It does It because the recent debate in the senate makes it plain that we are on the eve of another big contest for the debasement of our money, and because at the outset everybody should get clearly in mind what is at Issue and not be misled by words which are similar in sound, but wide apart in significance. The double standard does not mean the use of two metals for money, It means under present conditions the use of two dollars of different values. Bimetallism means, when the term is honestly used, the coinage of gold and silver nt a fixed equality of value, forming a single standard, every dollar in use exactly as good as every other dollar, maintained so by the faith and credit of the government. At the close of the war we had three standards of value. The greenback was worth 38 cents, the gold dollar 100 cents, and tho silver dollar 108 cents. Thirty years of republican financial legislation has brought us out of the chaos of those times and so long as the republican party is entrusted with power wo will have one dollar, whatever made of. If tho people believe this is not a good policy, they will not luck for leadership, for in the senate of the United States able men voted last week to return to the good old days of 1804, and give us again dollars of differing and fluctuating values. general system of exclusion, like thedia crimination against women and the limitation of apprenticeships. But in effect, the color line IS drawn by them so absolutely and so strictly, that no man suspected of the slightest tinge of color is permitted to Join a trade-union, or to work In company with a union man throughout the United States. -+- -f- -4- The third of Budyard Kipling's " Just-So Stories" appears in the February St. Nicholas, it tells " How the Rhlnocer- °?,9? t ? 11 !

Mr. Johnson Brlgham, having accepted tho state Ibrarmnship has sold the Midland Monthly to tho printers of the magazine Messrs. Conaway & Shaw, who will organize a stock company with Mr. Brigham as tho editorial head and themselvef as the business head of tho concern, thus strengthening each department by a division of labor and responsibility.

Burt has extended its school course The Armstrong Journal is five years old. It is one of tho brightest papers in Iowa. Senator Allison opposed the Lodge resulution making tho public debt payable in gold. If this should become a law silver would lose its last claim as a money metal. Ho voted also against the Teller resolution to pay in silver. If this should become a law the country would be on a silver basis. The public debt is payable in coin. That allows tho government plenty of latitude, and is fair to all. Senator Allison was right in both instances. A subscriber asks THE UPPER DES MOINES why hi fact the government does not pay out silver on tho public debt. It does if the creditor wants silver. The government pays out any money that is demanded, and thereby keeps all its money at par. If it should Insist on paying silver and refuse gold, silver would go below par in au instant. Tho government is in the same position a farmer would be in who proposed to keep steers and heifers even in value. He would manifestly have to sell at tho agreed price whichever his customer wanted. The parity would not last long if he kept saying they were even, but insisted on selling only heifers. The government says all its dollars are equal in value. Tho only way to make that good is to give out whichever is wanted. That is tho reason it always complies with a request for gold. L. B. Raymond of the Hampton Recorder, who has served on two state boards of trustees, says he favors a single board of control. His opinion is entitled to great weight.

A share in it is better than bank stock, and more sure of a dividend than a Klondike claim. NEWS FBOM WESLEY.

Archbishop Hennessy of Dubuque and Mgr. Martinelll, the papal delegate to tho United States, have locked horns over the Fort Dodge church. A year ago Father Lenihan, the pioneer pastor there, was promoted to a bishopric. He was what is known as an irremovable rector, and in the usual order his place would have been filled by a vote of the deans. But Archbishop Hennessy got it into his head to divide the church and accordingly himself appointed new priests, ordered a new church built, • and reduced the rank of the church. The Fort Dodge Catholics declared war on the new program and have been industriously at work. An appeal was at once made to Martinelli, and was to be carried to the pope. Hon. M. D. O'Connell was one of the leaders in the resistance. The result up to date is announced in the Sunday dailies, Martinelli having restrained Hennessy temporarily. The proceedings are thus reported: "Mgr Martinelli notified Archbishop Hennessy to suspend the subdivision of the diocese until a delegatial court could pass upon the merits of the case. In reply Archbishop Hennessy wrote a brief note to Mgr. Martinelli, stating that he declined to accept the advice as there was no necessity for outside interference, since he was vested with full authority as archbishop to decide all such matters for himself. Mgr Martinelli was affronted by this curt disregard of his authority and immediately wrote and commanded that the proceedings be suspended immediately. No reply was received from Dubuque." , What the outcome will now be is difficult to decide, but a bitter contest for authority is doubtless to be made between the archbishop and the papal delegate. J. J. Ryan, who is in Algo Mr. Roberts' Appointment Came to Him Unsought—Senator Allison Talks About Silver. Geo. E. Roberts was not a candidate for the position of director of the mint. The Messenger, his paper, says: " Mr. Roberts received a few days ago an inquiry as to whether he would accept the position of director of the mint. Until then no thought of aspiring to the position had entered his mind. Accompanying the inquiry were letters from Congressman Dolliver and Hon. M. D. O'Connell, urging acceptance. Although they had not proposed the appointment, they were consulted before the tender was made. Assent was given with the above result. No one had proposed Mr. Roberts' name for this or any other place." It is generally understood that President McKinley had Mr. Roberts in mind, having been much impressed by his writings on economic themes. It was PresidentMcKinley's suggestion. A Democratic Yarn. The Chicago Chronicle concocts a story about the appointment of Mr. Roberts, in which the fact that he is a bimetallist is made to cut a figure. The Chronicle says: By removing: Robert E. Preston from tho office of tho director of the mint and appointing George E. Roberts to that position President McKinley shows that he stands with Senator Wolcott of Colorado ugainst Secretary Gage on the money question. Less than a week ago on the'floorof the senate Wolcott denounced Preston as a mischief-maker, saying he had done more than any other one man to "back- cap" the bimotallist commission sent to Europe last spring. It is well understood hero that Preston was removed at Wolcott's instance in spite of the fact that Secretary Gage desired his retention. Mr. Preston is a strong advocate of the single gold standard. Mr. Roberts, the now director of the mint, is opposed to a single gold standard. He is an international bimetallist and is confident that with proper effort a monetary agreement can be secured by the United States with the leading nations of Europe providing for tbe coinage of gold and silver on equal terms. Allison Talks on Sliver. WASHINGTON, Jan. 25.—Today's session of the senate was characterized by a heated, almost acrimonious, discussion of the financial question. For nearly four hours the Teller resolution was under consideration, the principal speeches being made by Mr. Allison of Iowa, Mr. Berry of Arkansas, and Mr. Hoar of Massachusetts. The sharpest colloquy was at times indulged in between the advocates and the opponents of the resolution, the debate often approaching bitterness. The Teller resolution was laid before the senate. Mr. Allison reviewed the history of the Stanley-Matthews resolution [a resolution passed some 20 years ago expressly declaring that all public debts are payable in silver] maintaining that its passage at that time was not in opposition to public interest or in derogation of the rights of the public creditors. Ho held that now the situation was quite different. Mr. Allison insisted that the pending resolution gave the secretary of the treasury no more u u mi y under the law than he now has. The secretary may now pay the government obligations in coin. He held that there was no disposition on the part of the administration to evade the law, and declared that the republican party had maintained that it ought to be the purpose of the government to maintain the gold and silver money of the country at a parity. In response to a question of Mr. Teller, Mr. Allison said he thought it would be proper for the secretary of the treasury to pay the obligations of pects to start some time next month. A better man for this kind of work would be hard to find. He is a stout, robust and healthy individual of the most essential qualifications his honesty. If Mr. Johnson is fortunate enough to strike a gold mine in that country his constituents will be presented with the truth of the matter. He intends to remain at least two years. ^_______ A NEW ABSTRAOT COMPANY. An incorporated Company Will Hereafter Own the Doxsee Abstract Office—A Strong Combination.

Algoim's Former Episcopalian Rector Uccornes a Catholic Priest- How About Ills Family? The following news item appears in the Chicago Times-Herald from Milwaukee.• " MILWAUKEE, Jan. 27.—Rev. A. A. Mueller, who recently resigned from the Old Catholic Church in Green Bay, of which Archbishop Villatte was the diocesan, lias gone to Chicago to be ordained priest by Bishop Kozlowski, the newly ordained Old Catholic bishop. Mr. Mueller has had a varied career as a priest. He is said to have gone from Nashotau Seminary to the Roman Catholic church, and at one time was with Archbishop Katzen, when the latter was bishop of Green Bay. Then he entered the Episcopal church under the bishop of Iowa, but deserted this for a Congregational church, where he remained until ordained priest bv Archbishop Villatta." " Some of the facts above don't tally with the Algona rector's career, but the name is the same and our rector was fully persuaded that he ought to be a Catholic before he went away.
