"Grant Allen's" "The Tentsof Sheni,"
is all that could lie desired i:i this re

be found with it in any other way. It
is just a good satisfactory work of the
old fashioned sort, Willi a plot, aud a
villiau and a brave und handsome
hero, and an equally adorable heroine;
In short, nil the old-time requisites.
The villiau is punished the lovers wed

cover to cover there Is not the faintest
hint of a 'problem;" and yet it was

that the versatile author is more at

in dealing with social problems.
Ami so Clark Russell has wrltttu
another wor! "An Ocean Free

dedaic that It quite otitdis-s all former
eflorts in point of extravagance.
"Never," they say, "were '.hero such
tornadoes, such terrific combats, such
blisxl freezing spectacles, etc." But I
must confess, that In spite of the re
viewers I enjoy Clark Russell's stories
of the sea; ami though It would not
interfere with that enjoyment in the
ieasl if he left out some of the
blood and thunder; still these are In
teresling in a way, and next to the
free glad life of the open sen are Clark
Russell's descriptions of ii. I shall
never forget the exquisite delight of
that voyage, to the Island In tho Ant

waves, the strong wind, the running
sea, and the floating Ice. The story
sinks into insignificance In the splen
dor of Its setting.

James G Blaino whose great abili
ty and wisdom as a statesman is
not questioned, even by his politi
cal adversaries, defined his posi
tion on tho great question now being
considered by the American eoplo.
We especially invito tho attention
of those who belioved in him when
living, and honor him when dead,
to the hingungo of Mr Blaino in a
speech In the United States Senate in
1880. Ho said: "1 bolicvolhe Btrug-
clo going on in this country, and in
other countries, for nsingle gold stan
dard, would, if successful, produce
widespread disaster in and through

destruction of silver as money, aud
establishing gold as tho sole unit of
value, must havo a ruinous cllcct
on till forms of property excopt
those investments whloh yield a
fixed return in money. These
would bo enormously enhanced in
value, and would gain a dispropor
tionate and unfair advantngo over
every other species ol property."
Now that party lines are broken,
and no ono can bo properly called a
turncoat or traitor to his party, the
admirers of tho grcut statesman
can record their verdict of approval
of his views. Tho logic of events
since Mr Blaine mado that speech
affirms that ho had a clear and
correct view of what would follow
tho disfranchisement of silver. He
did notopposo it on tho simple
ground of expediency, but ho in
dorsed tho opinion of Daniel
Webster, tho great constitutional
lawyer, who declared that "Gold
and silver, at a ratio fixed by Con
gress, constitute tho legal standard
of valuo in this country, and neith

Philadelphia American: "Wheu
II iniiibal was encamped before tho
gitcs oi Home, the pitco of ground
occupied by his camp was put up
for sale, and brought its usual
price. In this way tho Romans
indicated their unshaken confi
dence in their final victory over tho
Cartliagcnians, even when they
could not put an unny in the field
to face them. This kind of confi.
dence seems to lie very much want
ing to the fricints of the gold t-tand
ard. They uro not satirtied that
they are going to win this year,
and that the silver people 'ill fail
to carry out their policy, so they
are beginning to gather up and
h.'ard the yellow metal, in the le
lief that it will go to a premium
after November. The banks of
Kansas City have actually sus
pended gold payments for this
reason, and thus take their share
for hoarding gold fr future prolit
in selling it.
"Tho bankers tf our Kastern
cities have wit enough to see that
this policy is pusillanimous and
desperate. B bides censuring their
brethren in Ka.isus City, they have
taken steps to replenish the gold re
servo in the national treasury by
paying in gold and taking green
backs in exchange. There id
nothing very heroic in this pro
cedure. These greenbacks aro de
mand notes which can be convert
ed into gold at the counter of tho
Now York sub-treasury at any
time. They aro payable, indeed,
in silver as well as in gold, but as
the treasury pays silver only to
thoso who ask it, they are gold cer
tificates practically, and will bo re
deemed us such at any date be
fore tho next 1th of March."
"On tho other ha ml, this htep is
eminontly politic. It will not do
for tho gold reserve to fall much
below the limit of 1100,000,000
fixed, without rhyme or reason,
as that needed for tho redemption
of tho greenbacks. If it fell to half
that sum, and nothing happened,
a sacred superstition of the mono-
motalhsts would be shaken, if not
shattered. Nor will it do for Mr.
Carlisle to make another bond is
sue before next November. This
tho organs of tho monometallists
frankly admit, would bo ruinous to
their cause. They thus concede
that those issues of bonds to bor
row gold were most distasteful nut
to the silver people, but to voters
whoso support they count upon.
Yet, as soon as tho election is over,
we Bhall see Mr. Curlislo putting
himself once more into the hands
of the New York money-lenders to
increase tho national debt for tho
suko of monometallism. ,
"Very naturally our creditors
abroad and their agents in New
York are interested, and are going
to do their share. It is said that
the foreign bankers aro going to
furnish sterling oxehango to the
amount of 50,000,000 to 7.r,n00,
000, in order to check tho export
of gold and obviato tho need of a
bond iBSue before next ISovember.
This is to be done, wo are told, by
tho issuo of sixty-day bills, in tho
confidence that tho tidoof gold will
set toward us beforo two months
havo expired. That tho bankers
are willing to tako such a risk is
proof how ereut is tho interest ol
tho foreign money-lenders in tho
maintenance of tho gold standard."
A few days ngo Mr McKinley's
manager, Mark Ilanna, remarked
to a United Press reporter in New
York: "To put it briefly," "our
position is in favor of sound money
and a protective tariff; and mind,"
ho added emphatically, "Ida not
mean a high tariff by any means."
Thero is not much comfort in this
for tho high tariff howlers.
