OEEGON OITY, AUGUST 12, 1898
Jt might be advisable for Dewey to
send a corporal of marines to bring
Agninaldo aboard ship and gently carry
him back to Hongkong.
Tre man who lost his feet in the Klon
dike and gained $100,000, being satisfied
with the exchange, was doubtless not
able to swap his head for anything.
From the official report of expendi
tures for July it appears that the war
has been costing $1,000,000 a day.
Looking at Ihe matter "by and large,"
isn't it worth it?
The wife of Stanco Uwaniwitch, the
chief of a band of gypsies near Chicago,
is suing him for divoiceonthe grounds
that he chains her to a bear. That
eeeuoH to be the ground on which most
women sue for divorces.
' Aooobding to a musical authority, the
mooing of a cow is set to a perfect fifth,
octave or tenth ; the bark of a dog to a
f'Ktrth or fifth ; the neighing of a horse
is a descent on the chromatic scale;
while the donkey brays in a perfect
octave. Yet it is thought that the
quality of the donkey's voice might be
improved ! Possibly the timbre o f the
violin might be represented by the
eqveal of the pig ; but a fine ear detects a
Nsitukr in Cuba nor in the Philip
pines are we getting any assistance from
tha riff-raff insurgents. During the
tlww days' engagements near Manila
between our troops and the Spanish ,lhe
rebels, instead of coming to our 'succor,
which, in fact, we did not need, were off
inaeecluded part of the country, cele
brating feasts. But now that the Philip
dine eoil has been consecrated with
precious American blood, the greater is
the reason why we should appropriate
those islands. If we do not want to
annex them, whv Bell them to Great
Britain. But we must, by all means,
retain Manilla and the immediately
contiguous country as absolutely Ameri
Now, that we have shown that there
must be an intrinsic value and a fiat
property in all sound money systems.
The question is which is the best system
for Americans. A fiat paper system or
a metalic system? Since e have shown
that sound money must contain botfi the
fiat and intrinsic power. There remains
nodoubt that the bimetalic system canbe
introduced with equal privileges at the
mints and successfully maintained.
The same law that makes the gold a
legal tender will make of silver a like
legal tender, in payment of all debts.
The question of ratio is very easily sold
and to avoid any sem-blanee of repudi
ation would suggest a return to the same
ratio that prevailed at the time of the
isuance of our national obligations
demanding payment in coin.
One of the reasons presented to mv
mind in support of the bimetalic system
is that it gives more employment to our
laboring people than does the manufac
turer of fiat paper money.
As the intrinsic value of any com
modity depends on the cost of its pro
duction. It is quite apparent that the
more labor employed in the production
the greater the intrinsic values. Hence
the addition of silver with equal privilege
with gold at the mints, is only an
American policy pure and simple.

E1CIIEST NATION OF THE GLOBE
Mr. Micheal G. Munhall, the noted
English statistician, is clearly of the
opinion that no other nation compares
with ours in all the essential elements
that go to make up aggregate wealth
lie also notes the fact that while tl e
most of European countries have attain
ed their erowth. the United States is hd
parently on the threshold of an industrial
ueveiopment which It has never dreamed
Mr. Munhall submits the following
taWe of estimates as being the result of
careful ana compreheiwve investiga.ion
into the sources of national wealth in
the .several countries :
United States $81 ,750,000,000
ureu urilttin OU,t3U,WH),U00
viwiuuiy 4U,'.'(i ,000,000
These computations are based upon
values as shown by real estate records,
building, merchandiHo, and railways,
as well as the circulating medium of each
nation. As will be seen our wealth is
more than seven times greater than that
of Spain, double that of Germany, two
and a half times greater than that of
lvussia, nearly double that of France,
equal to the combined wealth of Russia,
IUUy, Austria, and Spain, and f.'2.720,.
000,000 greater than that of Geat
Britain. Baltimore Herald.
Redemption Is a monetary Term and
What It Means.
Redemption money is a term used to
dinignate that part of our money system
supposed to contuin all the intrinsic
value of our circulating medium. The
word redemption as used in this connec
tion signifies the introduction of the fiat
power into our monetary system, pay
ment in fiat money or money whose
intrinsic worth rests in the vaults of our
government, simply means paying one
credit with another,
In fact an obligation liquidated in any
of the dementi resting on tho redemp
tion or gold money is not payed iu
intrinsic, only in tho flat property of our
pystein. The actual payment in intrinsic
values the transition of the tedeinption
part of our system to the holder of the
liat ioi tiou of the system.
There has never been a system neither
can there lie one which is able to borrow
the intrinsic value from the redemption
part and lend it to another district sub
stance, which may prove a part of the
system of money. Except through and
by the introduction of the flat property.
Matters Concerning Local
day Affairs Noticed by
Acetyline gas bids fair to come into
use in several establishments in Oregon
City. As an experiment, it is already
proving quite a success, and among the
buildings recently lighted with it are
the Congregational church, the Chau
tauqua auditorium and a store or two.
G. H. Bestow, who made these gener
ators as an experiment, has added a new
improvement to the machine, not here
tofore used, which will be patented.
Two years ago when the late Professor
bdgar McClure, of the state university.
delivered his practical lecture on the
acetyline light before the Chautauqua
Assembly, he nrobablv did not realize
that it would light up Gladstone park
in two years more.
The glamour of yellow gold that shed
halo of brilliancy over prospective exis
tence in the Klondike regions, has been
shorn of its lustre. The cold, hard
facts attested to by men who have ex
periericed life in that wide and desolate
region, put a new coloring on life in the
interior of Alaska. Thousauds have
gone there, experienced untold priva
tions, contracted disease, and returned
home much worse off financially, than
when they went away. The few, who
were successful, have wrecked their
physical constitutions, and while they
may revel in the possession of gold, the
tortures of contracted infirmities will
make life a burden. A few davs ago, a
well-to-do Washington farmer named
Vanbebber, returned from the Klon
dike, having accumulated about 20.000
during his slay in the mines. He was
one of the few successful ones, but
scuivy and exposure has debilitated his
system, his hair has turned gray, and
he has gone to some mineral springs
