Making Money Easy.
Mr. O. W. Cook of 3-Mile has recently
received a letter, accompanied by the
regulation bogus newspaper clipping,
urging him to go east and spend $1,000
for ten times that amount oi counterfeit
greenbacks. Mr. Cook, desiring to ex
pose the counterfeiters, brought the
letter to The Chronicle office.' The
usual plan of these people is to swindle
the person addressed, and not to furnish
him with counterfeits at all. After
furnishing him with a box of sawdust or
old paper, getting away with the boodle,
they are as safe from the measure of
justice as if they pursued a legitimate
calling. If the deluded victim desired
to expose the confidence men, he could
not for fear of incriminating himself.
Mr. JU. Harriman nas received a
similar letter, and there are probably
many others who have not reported, as
many are ashamed of even receiving
these letters. They need not be, though,
for advertisements frequently appear in
newspapers, paying people for furnish
ing lists of names in their section.

The Bond Issue Bothering; Carlisle
The Democrats In Congress.
From our Regular Correspondent.
Washington, Jan. 19, 1894.
This has been a decidedly unpleasant
week for Mr. Cleveland and the cuckoD
democrats. First came the knock-down
blow administered to Mr. Cleveland by
the senate when it refused to confirm
the nomination of Mr. Horn blower, of
New York, to the supreme court. Then
the house gave the cuckoos a whack by
refusing by a vote of 158 to 68 to adopt
the amendment approved by Mr. Cleve
land and the democrats of the ways and
means committee deferring the time
when the free wool clause of the Cleve
land tariff bill should go into effect, and
adopting by a vote of 112 to 102 an am
mendment making the freee wool clause
go into effect on the passage of the bill.
And that was not all. NothwithBtand
ing the pleadings of Secretary Carlisle
the ' democrats in congress refused to
share the responsibility of issuing bond's
with the administration, thus compell
ing Secretary Carlisle to announce an
issue of bonds under . the law of 1S75,
which was a bitter pill for him to swal
low, as he has been persistent since be
became a member of the cabinet in ex
pressing doubt of his authority under
that law to issue bonds for any other
purpose than the purchase of gold.
The silver men are much worked up
over this issue of bonds, as they had
been calculating that the necessities of
the administration would have enabled
them to have passed Mr. Bland's bill
for the issuing of silver certificates
against the seigniorage in the treasury.
Under the leadership of Representative
Bailey, of Texas, they started a move
ment for the adoption of a resolution
stating it to be the sense of the house
that bonds could only be issued under
the act of 1875 (for the resumption of
specie payments) for the purpose stated
in that act, but they met a Btumbling
block at the start in the continuing or
der which the house is considering the
tariff bill, which will not expire until
the 29th inst., too late to stop the issue
of bonds, even allowing that the reso
lution could have" passed, and that it
would have stopped Secretary Carlisle,
The truthfulness and aptness of the
remarks made by Representative .Hart
man, of Montana, concerning the pecu
liar position occupied by Chairman
Wilson of the house ways and means
committee, (who, notwithstanding the
proven falsity of his prediction at the
extra session that the repeal of the
purchasing clause of the silver law
would relieve the country of its financial
and business depression, is now predict
ing that the Cleveland tariff bill will
afford that relief, almost excuses the un
parliamentary language used. Mr.
Hartman asked concerning Wilson "Is
he a democratic prophet? or the son of a
prophet, or only the mouthpiece of the
stuffed prophet of Buzzard Bay?"
While there are people who- object to
such an undignified way of referring to
the president there are few who will
deny that Wilson is the mouth-piece of
Mr. Cleveland. As chairman . of the
ways and means committee he is a mere
figure-head, the actual chairman being
I tie norny-nanded wage-earners in
your locality will doubtless rejoice with
exceeding gladness to know that the
democrats of the house in their anxiety
to enable them to wear shoes made of
French calf-skin, patent leather and
chameis skins have reduced the duty on
those articles, which everybody knows
are so largely used by the toiling masses
by an amendment to. the Cleveland
tariff bill, to 15 per cent, ad valorem
Still there are people who dare to doubt
the friendship of the democratic party
for the wage-earners, a friendship con'
stantly declaredand never shown.
Senator Chandler gave Senator Palmer
a raking down for the straddling posi
tion he attempted to take in a speech in
favor of a bill for the repeal of the fed'
eral election laws. Senator Chandler
opened by. saying that he was prepared
to defend the essential wisdom, integ
rity and patriotism of the republican
party from .its birth down to this hour.
"I do not," continued Mr. Chandler,
"defend it only, as the senator from II
linois has done, to the time when that
senator, who has been a republican gov
ernor of Illinois, left the republican
party. The senator from Illinois today
pronounced it to have been a party of
patriotism as long aa he belonged to it
but when he left it, according to Mr,
Palmer's argument, it bad suddenly
turned around upon liberty, and upon
everything that was good, and has gone
down from that hour, until it is now
only a party of evil." The laugh te:
which several times resounded' through
the chamber while Mr. Chandler was
speaking did not improve the taste of
the dose administered to Mr. Palmer
Whatever may have been anyone'
personal preierences republicans are
unanimous in the belief that Represen
tative Gear will make a senator of whom
Iowa will be proud. He has had a wide
experience and his republicanism is the
rock-bound sort. Congratulations are
pouring in upon him. ,
Senator Call's resolution for an exam
ination into the civil service of the
United States and as to the expediency
of its retrenchment or its increase was
the basis of a short but at times amusing
debate in the senate. Cab.
