We of the North are doing nothing

selve. A STUDY OF OUR DEBT.
New York AdvertiMT.
A study of thejuatioual debt of the
United States reveals facts that, being
part and portion of American history,
cannot be contradicted. Let us
analyze our debt since 1824, during a
period of seventy years.
From 1824 to 1833 the United State
was under a protective policy. In 1824
the naiional debt amounted to 190,269,.
777.77 on Jauuary 1 of the year. In
1833 it had been reduced to $7,001,698.-
83. a decrease of $83,268,079.94 under
protection in nine years.
From 1834 the county was under a
free trade policy. On January 1. 1834,
the natiotal debt was $4,700,082,08. In
1842 it had grown to $13,593,480.73, an
Increase of $8,834,398.95 uuder free trade
in eight years.
From 1843 to 1846 the country was
again under protection policy. The
national debt of $20,001,226.28 on
January 1, 1843, was reduced to $15,-
650,202,97 on July 1, 1840, a decrease of
$5,051,023.31, in three and a half years.
From 1846 to 1851 we aaln ex
perlenced the free trade policy. The
national debt of$14,550,203.97 on July 1,
1846, was Increased to $90,580,673.72 on
July 1, 1861, an increase of $75,020,070.75
in fifteen years.
The civil war left us with a debt of
13,773,236,173.69 on July 2, I860. It
was reduced, under the policy of pro
tection, to $1,598,111,156.13 on July 1,
1893, a decrease of $1,175,125,017.56 In
During 1893 and 1894 we have 'again
experienced a free trade administration,
the result being an increase of $100,000,-
000 in the national debt within twelve
For a more ready comparison we
tabulate these results as follows:

1860-1893.... 1,175,125,017 43,523.148
Tliis Is as interesting as it Is instruc
tive a lesson.
During twenty-four years of free
trade administration the national debt
was increased by $183,865,0(38, or at the
rate of $7,660,000 a year.
During forty years of protection the
national debt was decreased by $1,263,
444,118, an annual decrease of $31,586,-
It will also be noted that where the
increase in aebt was only at the rate of
$1,104,299 a year from ia'i4-1842, it has
increased to an annual increase in debt
of $100,000,000 sixty years later under
the present democratic administration,
which has merely threatened our pros
Irlty, the out growth of marly thirty
years of undisturbed protection, with
another attack ot Its destructive free
trade disease. The more we have
of democratic government the worse it
is for the country.
THE WORLD'S MONEY.
The director of the mint of the United
States, in his annual report, just pub
lished, says the Orngmiau, gives tables
that show the volume of money lu the
principal countries of the world. He
etates that since his last report, there
has been an increase of $64,000,000 in
f tocks of gold money, $124,000,000 of
liver money and of 1130,000,000 of'
uncovered paper money. It may be
useful to explain that "uncovered
paper" means paper lu excesa of ootu
reserve held against Ik Thus our gold
or Uvr certificates fwrro no part of the
uncovered paper, because for each
dollar of them lu circulation there la a
gold or silver dollar In the treasury.
To count tlwee and the gold and silver
reserve held against them would be
misleading, as both can uot circulate
at the same time. '
The following table gives the void
and silver in the various countries;

countriesamounu to $-2,570,900,000, of
which the United 8 tales has $475,000,

except Russia, which haa $A&0,000,UOO.
Urtat Britain has $113,000,000 of eucb

$88,000,000; Spain, $lu7(000,t00; Austria
Hungary, $146,300,000, and Italy, $107,
000,000. It appears, therefore, that
Russia, Austria and the Uulted 8tatee
have almost half the uucovered (taper
of the world. The director estimates
that since his last report the uucovered
paper has beeu reduced $40,000,000 In
Austria-Hungary . $22,000,000 In France.
$20,000,000 in Russia, aud $50,000,000
in the South American states.
Summarised the report shows that
the world's supply of gold money Is a
little kss, and of silver money a little
more, that four billions, the sliver ex
ceeding the gold by fUO.OOO.OOO. The
per capita In the several countries is as

Of all the countries France has the
largest circulation per capita, and near

The Netherlands, Portugal and the
United States have each nearly as much
as Ilulgium, but In Portugal nearly half
the money supply Is In uncovered paper
Great Biltain has a small fraction less
than $20 per capita, more than two-
thirds of which is gold. Rclgaria has
the smallest money supply as compared
wltb population, and nearly all of It is
silver. It Is worthy of remark that
the low percentages are mostly found
In the countries having the sliver stan

The state of New York has passed
law that there shall be no pools sold ou
auy race track In that state, which
means that gambling is to tie Illmlnated
from race eveuts. lladd Dobbs, a prom
inent horseman, has this to say ou the
effect of the law.
"I know that very mauy of the best
horsemen believe that the alsilishment
of the pools means the death of the trot
ting meetings, which are considered the
lifenf the breeding Industry. However,
I believe I am ready to iro on record
that, In my opinion, the trotting Inter

gambling feature Is completely ellmi

first, but trotting Is the greatest of all
American sports, aud It should be the
purest. There are intrinsic values back
