A GREEN-GOODS CAPTURE.
' A ' crushing blov has been struck
against the "green-goods" business in
Hew York. A printing establishment,
engaged in the printing of circulars ad
vertizing green goods, was raided by
Anthony Com stock and a vast amount of
supplies captured. Men were taken in
the act of printing the unlawful circulars.
The green-goods business is not unfamil
iar to western people. Of late years it
has been developing rapidly, and like
the gold-brick swindle, has caught many
whose cupidity and stupidity were on a
par. Utilizing various sources of infor
mation the addresses of many thousands
of well-to-do persons are secured. ' To
these a confidential communication is
sent conveying the intimation that the
sender has in his possession stolen gov
ernment plateB, and that, with govern
ment paper (also stolen,) ' he is enabled
to furnish what are in fact genuine gov
ernment notes. This he will do for
about twenty percent of their face value,
The weak-minded bite at this tempting
offer and enter into negotiations that
finally result in their getting a box of old
paper or sawdust. . Having been a party
to a proposed crime the victim cannot
make complaint, and silently endures
his loss. The extent to which the green -goods
business has been carried on dis
closes the weakness and susceptibility of
human nature. The desire to get some
thing for nothing, even with the chance
of criminality, animates a painfully
large number . of people. Many
thousands of citizens of the west who
have received the circulars of these New
York rascals, and have chaffed at the
implied doubt as to their intelligence
and honest', will rejoice in the present
discomfiture of the gang.
Senators Jones and Cannon left Liver
pool yesterday returning from the inter
national money conference at Brussels.
About the same hour Mr. Harter, of
Ohio, offered in the house, as a substi
tute for the senate resolution of Mr.
AlcPherson, a joint resolution providing
that "all furtlier purchases of silver
bullion by the United States of America
shall cease from and after -the passage
or adoption of this resolution, and said
purchases shall be resumed only when
an agreement is made that shall at least
include Great Britain, Germany, France
and the United States of America, and
such agreement shall fix the valuation
at which silver bullion will thereafter be
received for coinage, without limit as to
quantity, at the mints of ail the nations
parties to said international agreement."
Harter thinks this resolution would ac
' complish the same result and not be
open to the same objection as the Mc
Fherson resolution. "It would more
over," he says, "be a notice to the world
that we are ready to join other civilized
nations in the coinage of silver upon any
agreed national ratio, and that, in the
meantime, we declined going on raking
'their chestnuts in for them at the risk of
commercial disaster and national dis
grace." Harter says he believes the sil
ver purchases have greatly contracted
currency during the last 24 or 25 months,
and that, after counting in the notes is
sued by the government in payment for
7 pig silver, the actual volume of currency
today is probably at least $200,000,000
perhaps $250,000,000 or $275,000,000,
smaller than if we had been out of silver
Mary M. Anderson, who was a few
years ago granted a separation from her
husband, Louis C. Anderson, of Seattle,
has sued hiin for $25,000 damages on
the ground of breach of promise. She
avers that he courted her again a year
ago, re-captured her heart and promised
to re-marry her, but has since married
eome one else.
