A Comprehensive Review of the. Flmw clal Inu'e, Written From n Nonpnrtlsan Standpoint by One Tlioronffhly Competent to Pai» Judgment, Secretary Carlisle has written the following letter on the subject of tho maintenance of the parity between gold and silver: . "Mr. James P. Helm,'Louisville, Ky.: ~ 77 MY~DEAK" SIR—Your letter askinR how the silver dollars which contain a quantity of bullion, commercially worth only about 53 cents, are maintained at n parity with gold, notwithstanding the fact that tho government does not directly redeem them or tho certificates issued upon them in gold, is received, and, as a great many inquiries upon tho same subject ore addressed to me daily from different parts of the country, which it ia impracticable to answer in detail, I take advantage of your favor to answer them all at once. "All the standard iilvcr dollars issued from the mints since tho passage of the act of 1878, now amounting to moro than (5-183,000,000, have been coined on public account from bullion purchased by tho government, and are legal tender 'in payment of all debts, public and private, without rccard to the amount, except when otherwise expressly stipulated in the contract between tho parties. They belong to tho government when coined, and they arc paid out by tho government at a parity with gold for property and (services of all kinds, and received from the people at a parity Yrith gold in the .payment-of all public dues and demands. The government has made no discriminations whatever between tho coins of the two metals, gold having been paid upon its coin oh- lications when gold was demanded and silver having beeu paid when silver was demanded. , "Under this policy the coinage has been so limited by law nnd the policy of the treasury department that Iheamouut. coined has not become so.great ns to .flrivo the moro valuable coin, gold, out of use and thus destroy the basis of our monetary system, and BO long as tho two metals" aro of unequal commercial value, at the ratio established by law, this limitation'upon the coinage is m my opinion, absolutely essential to tho maintenance of their parity in cfTccvins onch-ii^os. It constitutes the principal safeguard for tho protection of our currency iigaiust- the depreciation which tho experience of all countries has. shown would otherwise result from tho attempt to aso two IcRttl toudor coins of tho same denomination but of unequal vilnos Jf the limitation wore removed, confidence in (.ho ability of tho government to preserve equality in the exchangeable value of the coins would bo destroyed, raid tho parity would bo losu before the amount of silver coinage had become really excessive. "With free and unlimited coinage of silver on account of private individuals aud corporations the government would bo undor no' moral obligation to mam- tain die parity, and, moreover, it would be unable to : do-so, because tho -.volume of overvalued silver forced into tho circulation by legal tender provision would soon expel gold from tho country, or put such a premium upon it that. it would bo impossible to procure and hold iii.the treasury a sufficient amount to provide for the redemption of silver on presentation In order to maintain tho .parity under suc-h-conditionn the government would be compelled from the beginning to exchange gold'for. silver, dollars, and their ' paper'represbutativBs, whenever . demanded, just'the 'aftine iw>it now-exchanges gold for its own notes v.-hen demanded; and .as the coinage of silver dollars wpuld be railimited,ttnd,there- '.ftwe,'•-.;• conittntlr/v»»w«» in «t, B polnt would soon bo reached where it would bo impossibly to continue the process of redemption. "The implied obligations of. the government to preserve the value of the money which it coins from its own bullion for its own use, and which it forces its citizens to recieve .in exchange for their property and services, has been supplemented by the two statutory declarations which substantially pledge the public faith to the maintenance of that policy. The act of Jnly 14, 1890, after providing that the secretary of the treasury should, under such regulations as ho might prescribe, redeem the trous ury notes issued in the purchase of silver bullion, in gold or silver coin at his discretion, declares that it is 'the established policy of the. United ^tat-es to maintain the two metnU c* a. parity with each othor upon tho present legal ratio, or such ratio as may be provided by law;'and tho act of Nov.], 1803, again declares it to be 'the policy of tho United States to continue the use of both gold and silver as standard money and to coin both gold and silver into money of equal intrinsic and exchangeable value, such equality to be sccuroc through international agreement or by such safeguards of legislation as will .insure the maintenance of the parity of value of the coins of tho two metals and tho equal power of every dollar at all times in the markets and -in the payments of 'debts.' A Mutter of ConQdonce. "With knowledge of these assurance; tho people have received these coins ant have relied confidently upoii tho gooc faith of thoir government; and the con fidonco thus inspired has been a inos potent factor in tho maintenance of thi parity. The public has been satisfied that so long as our present nionetarj system is preserved the government wil do whatever its moral obligations nut express declarations require it to do, am very largely as a consequence of this confidence ia tho good faith of the executive authorities the silver coins have not depreciated in value. It is not doubted thnt whatever can bo lawfully done to maintain equality iu the exchangeable value of the two metals will be doiio whenever it becomes'necessary, and, although silver dollars and silver certificates have not up to the present time beeu received in exchange for gold, yet if the-time shall over corac when the Surprise of an Ex-Circua Man on His Return from Europe. ,e«t tho BRS» on Hl» Sure and th« Electric l.ii;lit UK* tlie Rerit-- Kecord. Five little pythons that were hatched by electricity are pluying about the home of Benjamin Fish, a retired circus man, who lives in Bridgeport, Conn. A monster female python was shipped rom New York u yeur ago. consigned to a large circus corporation. The py- hon wus confined in a large wooden box. Somewhere near Stamford she escaped. A great hue and cry followed the escape, and from day to day the newspapers priatcd the stories of farmers in various parts of Connecticut who said they had seen the gig-antic snake. rVhen the cider crop had nil been put. away in cellars, says the Now York World.less was heard of the snake. She probably died in one of the cold waves ast winter. ' _ In looking over the box which had been occupied by the pythoness Mr. Fish found six -wgs. He put them in a box and took thorn to his office. Here he' exhibited them to his friends for n few days. .Then he put them on top of his safe. About that time Mr. Fish was ittlled to Europe on business concerning the estate of Mme. DemitriusCallias Bey. As a matter of safety'Mr. Fish hod a large electric arc light put over the safe in his office. "Xo burglar will dare to gro near tho safe now." lie said, as he was about to lenve. Mr. Fish returned after a little more than one month's absence. He was sitting in his office one morning when lie hesircl a curious crackling- noise coming Irom tho top of the safe. He found that the noise came from the box of python egg*. He lifted oft the lid nnd nt the same.moment dropped it on the floor and .lumped backward five tent. From the eggs in the middle of the box there stuck out. a flat, blnck head; with beady eves that glittered like dewdrops. A li'ttle red mouth opened nnd aV-tipped parity ciranot be otherwise such esc'httn.CTS will bo macio. "It is the duty of tho'secretary of tho treasury "»ud of all other public officials to execute in good faitli the policy cli;- clorccl by' congress, and whenever ho shall be .satisfied that Hie silver dollar cannot be kept equal in piu-chnsiii^' power with the prold duller, except by rcceivirig it • in cxchancfo for the gold dolli'.r, when snch exchange is'demand- ed, it 'will bo his duty to ;jdopt that course. But if onr.prpscnt: policy is adhered to a.ud tho coinage is kept within reasonable limits, cho means horotofoi-6 employed for the maintenance of tho parity will doubtless be fBund sufficient in the future, and our silver dollars and silver certificates will continue to circular at par with' cold, thus ouabliujr the people to use both metals instead of one only, as would bo the case if the parity •was destroyed by free coinage. Yours • J. G. CARLISLE." WORST- KIND OF .INLATION— Mr. Bryan does uot follow his argument to its logical conclusion, but flies Hie track as • soon as he gets-silver to $1.29 per ounce.. When we consider that -silver is beinir; produced for from 40 to 50 cents an ounce we begin to realize the' enormous profit there will be in free coinage for the silver mine owner. Every, drill would be started to drill silver, and mining companies could realize •a.proflt of irom 200 to 800 per cent. '-..All .the idle,capital : in the world, that cpnld geVjni'p the 'mining" and. .coining business wpnW get in, arid the, result -would 'be that the volume of currency would be. made rotten by money for which the government would not be responsible. No worse calamity could happen to » nation. "TOOK IT LIKE CANDY," tongue was playing- like a newly-smitten tuning- fork, while asharp little hiss filled the room. ' "Only two glasses of claret with dinner" soliloquized Mr. Fish, "and no nightcap, and nothing- but coffee with my breakfast. Temperance has its rc- v.-ards. I haven't a. bit of doubt the thinc-'s alive, but—" Well. Mr."Fish called in the neighbors. They stood around with bulging eyes and watahed the newly-hatched snake. lin.Tnm; their jor when another .egf* begem to crackle and a second black flat head appeared. One by one three other eggs hatched. The sixth egg was bad. "What d'ye suppose hatched em, you being tv temperate man?" all the neighbors cried. "Electricity, as sure as you're alive, replied Mr. Fish. "There were some fakirs following us around.the country who advertised that 'electricity is life, but I took no stock in it on account of Tjeople being killed by lightning and electric-light wires. But now! see that it is life Nothing in this world butthat electric light hatched those, snakes. What I'll feed 'em on is what bents ""Give 'cm the bottle." said a wise fa thcr ol five. Mr. Fish had n bottle fillet! with warm milk, a short rubber pipe ending- in o thick biting-piece ran fron .he neck, of the bottle. Mr. Fish presented (he end of the rubber to the oldest little python. "Took it like candy," he says, m telling of th<> experiment. "Why, bless me if the little Oev.il didn't swig away at it like an old sailor at hisgrog. I though I'd'n' died when he turned his .blink} little eyes on me and winks bareback queen." Mr. Fish took the snakes homo, and he Ii"s"k0pt. thorn there ev-e'r since. Kncl young python has his own-bottle. The snakes are growing finely, and thc.v are now as big as Oic ordinary g-arler snake 3 nc finite in a country garden. They plaj with the children.of Mr. Fish's house roll down the stnirs and slide down th< banisters with equal joy, and their )if< is one grand, sweet.picnic; "Mark my words." says.
