ues ; and when of less than fall weight at

Sec. S. And be it furthered enacted,

30 and 31 require that when tho coins
which are the equivalent to any deposit
of bullion are ready for delivery they
shall be paid over, payment being made
to depositors in the order of priority of
deposit. And to enable the mint to
make returns to depositors with as little
delay as possible, it is made tho duty of
the eeeretary of the treasury to keep in
the mint, when practicable, a deposit not
exceeding $1,COO,000, out of which the
vdhu of bullion brougiit to the mint may
be paid as soon us ascertained ; but no
discount or interest is to be charged on
moneys so advanced.)

The law of March 3, 1S49, authorized
tho coinage of gold dollars and double
eagles, "conformable in all respects to
the etandard for gold coins now estab
lisbed by law," and to be a legal tender
in payment for all sums.

But thoy had bettsr save their breath to

LITTLE CURRENCY CATECHISM.
Q. What is the whole body of cur
rency ot the United States today?
A. Paper, $475,000,000; silver, $610,-
000,000; gold, $612,000,000.
Q. What is the existing money
etandard of the country?
tV. Gold, by means of which all the
pilver and all the paper are worth 100
cenla on the dollar.
Q. What would be the effect if we
should abandon the existing gold stand
ard? A. All the gold would leave the
country in accordance with the never
questioned law that a superior money
will not remain in the country where an
inferior money is the standard. Silver
ites admit that gold is 16 times more
valuable than silver. That is what the
ratio of 16 to 1" means. In truth, to
day gold is 32 times more valuable than
Q. What amount of money would
thus be withdrawn from the country if
the silver standard should be substituted
for the gold standard?
A. Six hundred and twelve million
dollars, contracting the country to that
amount and crippling the country
Q. If the silver standard were sub
stituted for the existing gold standard,
what would be the effect on the $610.-
000,000 of silver now worth 100 cents on
A. The entire quantity of silver dol
lars would be worth their weight in
silver par ounce, which varies from
week to week like the price of wheat,
and the immediate effect would be to re
dace fhe $610,000,000 to $305,000,000,
the present value of silver per ounee in
qpine, thus contracting the currency of
the country to this additional amount,
making a total contraction of $917,000,-
Q. What would be the effect on the
paper in our currency if we should sub
stitute the silver standard tor the ex
isting gold standard?
A. The $475,000,000 of paper, today
worth 100 cents on the dollar on the ex
isting gold standard, would at once de
cline 50 cents on the dollar on the sil
ver standard, based on the price of sil
ver today, the immediate effect being to
rcdnce the value of paper now in the
currency to $237,500,000.
Q. By abandoning the existing gold
standard for the free silver standard,
what then would be the first net result?
A. A loss to the country of $1,154,-
500,000, every dollar worth 100 cents by
reason of the existing gold standard.
Q. AVhat do yon deduce from this?
A. That we need all the money we
have and that we want every dollar to
be worth 100 cents.
Q. How can we keep all the money
we have and keep every dollar worth
A. By preserving the existing gold

HOW DID HE MAKE IT?
'Two years ago when I canvassed
Oregon, the Oregonian accused me of
being worth a quarter of a million. To
day the value of my property has
shrunken more than half. I own a
half-interest in one new saw mill, which
mill propeity represents $160,000,"
The above is an extract from a reply
and explanation of Major ;Pennoyer,
haying been accused of exacting gold
notes, secured by mortgage, in settle
ment with his debtors.
How did Mr. Pennoyer come fo be
worth a quarter of a million dollars two
or tour years ago? Did he not amass all
this wealth under a gold standard, which
he now berates and blames so bitterly?
How did he get a half interest in a $160,-
000 new mill. Did he not acquire this
in gold standard times? Did he not also
reap a share of the prosperity diffused
by protection, which he has fought so
"With protection to lumber and other
industries once more in force, and with
the gold standard made secure against
the attack of such demagogues as Mr.
Pennoyer, he would be again prosperous
an I his rating of a quarter of a million,
by his thritty habits, would soon be
rendered too low. He knows it, too, as
well as anybody. He is only indulging
his demagogic contumacy. He is any
thing but sincere and honest with bis
own conscience. Statesman.
Does anybody doubt that William
McKinley as President would be as good
a friend of labor as ho was during his
long career as a member of Congress?
No man has been closer to the people
than tho author of the tariff law under
which, in 1S92, the country reached the
highest prosperity ever attained in its
history, and the cause of the high ad
miration in which he is held is his ster
ling integrity both in public and private
affairs, his unswerving patriotism and
his jealous regard for tho financial honor
and material prosperity of tho Nation.
Tho people choso William McKinley as
the standard-bearer of the republican
party, and they will elect him to the
Presidency because he stands for pro
tection, Eound money and prosperity.

Mr. Wm. Evans, lepresenting the In
dustrial Exposition of Portland called
upon the Plaixdealeb Tuesday and out
lined his mission. Mr. Evans is solicit
ing for the exposition, samples of wood,
grains, grasses, fiuits, vegetables and
minerals, products of Douglas county, to
place on exhibition at the exposition,
commencing Sept, 19th and continue till
Oct. 17, inclusive.
Mr. Evans has interviewed most of the
prominent business men in this city and
secured their co-operation in soliciting
and caring for and forwarding at the
proper time, such specimens of Douglas
county products as may be secured for
that purpose. Amongst those who have
promised their aid in that direction arer
Thoa. Gibson, of the signal service; D.
S. K. Bniclc and J. D. Hamilton, real
estate agents; B. C. Agee, sheriff;
Asher Marks, grain and wool dealer;
T. R. Sheridan or First National Bank;
C. W. Parks & Co., grocers; "W. G.
Woodward, saddler, and P. Benedick,
These men will look after all field,
forest and mineral products. Also of
all works of arts and mechanism and
forward the same to the exposition; and
the exposition will return the same, if
desired, to the owners after the close of
the exhibit. It is earnestly hoped the
farmers, fruit growers and mechanics of
Douglas county will see the- great
practical utility of Buch a movement,
and bring in to the above named gentle
men those articles which will demon
strate the varied products of this conrity.
The exposition is desirous of having the
district fair exhibits sent them after its
close, the last of this month. This, the
managers and exhibitors will doubtless
be pleased to do. The Plain-dealer
will gladly lend any assistance in its
power to this worthy cause, and can
confidently promise that the district
fair will also lend its aid by turning
over to the exposition such of its ex
hibits as may be desired.
Deafness Cannot be Cured
By local applications as they cannot
reach the diseased portions of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness" is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eusta
chian tube. When this tube is inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it S entirely closed,
deafness Is the result, and unless the. in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing bat an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
"We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars ; free.
