THE CURRENCY QUESTION.
The Minneapolis Tribune of recent
date gives place to a speech delivered be
fore the Commercial club of that city by
a Mr. D. R. Forgan, who represents the
position of the sound money men, and
comments on the same at length editor
ially. It is interesting as showing what
he considers the essential features of the
only necessary legislation from his point
Mr. Forgan shows that this country
now has something like $1,650,000,000 of
what we call money in circulation. Of
this, about (550,000,000 is gold, $200,000
national bank notes, and the balance
silver or government notes of some des
cription. The greenbacks, amounting to
some $300,000,000, are fiat money, pure
and simple, issued to paj the war debt,
and kept afloat ever since by the provis
ion of law requiring them to be .reissued
after they have been redeemed in gold.
They thus constitute the "endless chain,
as happily described by President Cleve
land, which is used over and over again
to deplete the treasury of its gold re
serves. The treasury notes, $120,000,
000, issued for the purchase of silver, are
redeemable in gold or silver at the option
of the government, but they are practic
ally redeemable in gold, because the
moment the government should attempt
to pay them in silver half the value of
all the silver coin and silver certificates
would vanish as if by magic, and eilver
would bring only its bullion value.
There are $30,000,000 of silver certifi
cates and $55,000,000 of silver dollars
which are worth only 50 cents on the
dollar, but are kept at par by the govern
ment by main strength. No one wants
the silver in any large quantities. With
only $55,000,000 of it in actual circulation
the banks have more silver than they
can nee, and the offices of the assistant
treasuries of the United States are over'
worked trying to redeem it as it pours in
upon them. On the contrary, everyone
wants gold. There has been $580,000,000
in gold coined by the government, and
do what it will it cannot keep an ade
quate supply in the treasury. The only
proper use for silver is as subsidiary
coin as change in the pocket, and that
is the place England has given it.
Mr. Forgan regards the free silver and
the fiat money ideas as very much the
same. The government stamp is relied
on to giye the paper dollar all its value.
and the silver dollas half its value. The
principle is the same; the difference is
only one degree. Of the two, the abso
lute fiat is preferable, for if the govern
ment can make money, it ought to make
It out of the cheapest material.
To place our currency on a sound and
safe basis and insure a return of confi
dence, Mr. Forgan would have the : gov
ernment go out of the banking business
It should issue and float $1,000,000,000
of 2)4 or 3' pef cent bonds to run for 25
-years, and with the proceeds cancel the
greenbacks, treasury notes and silver
certificates. Then sell the silver not re
quired in circulation for what it will
bring, writing off its loss as banks and
merchants do when - they make foolish
investments. Then to provide an ade
quate volume of circulating medium, re
duce the tax on bank circulation from 1
to i per cent, and allow banks (state
and national) to issue notes secured by
such bonds to the full par value, each to
the extent of its paid up capital.
' With the greenbacks and certificates
out of the way there would be no scram
ble for-gold, there would he no gold
boarded, and there would be no scarcity
of good money.
We have received several California
papers, published in Kern county, Call
fornia, and containing comment on the
Packard-Craig contest cases. It seems
that the cause of the attack on Mr,
Packard was on account of politics en
tirely. Packard was a candidate for the
office of county clerk. His opponent
Craig, was declared elected, and Pack
ard contested the election. The papers
are warming the judge up for his deci
sion, which was in favor of Craig, al
though according to the same judge's
count of the ballots, Packard had four
teen or fifteen votes majority. The
whole matter is simply one of politics,
Mr. Packard has appealed from the de
cision of the superior court.
Tha Mew Dime Law.
The following are the provisions of
the law passed by ttbe last legislature

No mention is made of the salmon in
Edgar Mayer, the 16-year-old eon of
S.J.Mayer of Portland, who has been
in the . employ of the General Electric
company of Portland for six months,
Saturday, while dismantling an old
switchboard and moved by an inordinate
curiosity, grasped the ends of two live
wires, and was instantly killed. He had
been warned many times not to touch
the wires, but had expressed a desire to
do so, and also asserted that he did not
believe that the wires could kill him.
