The battalion drill and dress parade
last night at. the 3rd Regiment armory
was a magnificent success, both as to the
attendance, which, was very large, and
also the execution of all of the maneu
vers. From the colonel commanding
down to the . battalion markers every
man in "A & C" companies as well as
the band and regimental staff knew his
duty and did it thoroughly and well. A
proficiency and ease in drill, unlooked
for on the part of the great audience,
combined with .steadiness and soldierly
bearing, evoked frequent rounds of hearty
applause. Although the dancers seemed
to hesitate at first about taking the floor,
yet as the hours wore on they filled the
floor and all went merry as a: marriage
bell. The officers and men of this com
mand, deserve great commendation for
the pains and time bestowed 'upon the
drill necessary to bring the battalion to
its present condition of efficiency. .

Free Coinage of Silver.
On the silver question Mr. Dana said :
"We have almost reached tree coinage
already. The coinage of 4,500,000 ounces
of silver a month almost amounts to that.
The ettect of tree coinage will be to give
us silver currencv. We are now on a
gold basis and gold is the standard. The
substitution of silver for gold, making
silver the currency, will raise the value
of gold to a small premium. It was so
in France a few years ago. It was a
mere trifle, only one-fifth of one per
cent. 1 believe, but it was there. We
are now in that road and we have got to
travel it. lins will make gold worth a
small premium over silver, and when
American importers buy goods abroad
they will have to pay the price, not in
silver, but in gold. "That is, they will
pay a premium, which will be that much
added to the import duties, r ree coin
age, with our mint open to the world,
would increase this premium. A better
way would be to have free coinage of
American silver only. Otherwise all the
old teapots of the world would be brought
nere to oe turned into dollars."
