as large as the Oluckamas county conrt
house, and they have 75 or 83 men em
ployed. Quite a number were counting
money, they had just received a ship
ment of silver from the mint, but they did
not take time to count it. Two men with
scoop' shovels were piling it onto a pair
of rcales, one taking the weight, another
hooking it, another holding a sack and
still another carrying it away. You can
imagine how cheap it is when one of our
one cent pieces gets two of theirs, five
d dlars of our gold gets ten thirty-five of
their money. One has got to carry
pocket full of one and two cent pieces all
the time as cigars sell for from oue to
five cents each and other articles In pro

change they try to dim flam you. Bryan
should come here if he wants cheap
money. A Colonel's pay is about tVlOO
