SILVER AND WAGES.
TLe three hundred Pennsylvania
laborers who refused to take their
pay in silver the othei day and dc
mandcd gold were influenced by a
false impression as to present cur
rency conditions, says the Globe
Democrat, but their action served,
nevertheless, to teach an important
less an. Their employers paid them
in gold as a matter of voluntary con
cession, ignoring the fact that he
could have compelled tbem to take
silver. It made no difference to
him, and it made no difference to
them, that he chose to comply with
their demand. Their mistake was
in supposing that the silver dollar is
now worth only 50 cents or 51 cents,
whereas it is really worth 1 00 cents,
or, in other words, it is as good as a
gold dollar in purchasing power. Its
intrinsic value is only about half as
much as that of the gold dollar, but
it circulates at par because it is pos
sible for the government, under ex
isting conditions, to save it from de
preciation. If, however, the amount
of such money should be increased
to the extent proposed by the free
coiners, it would inevitably forfeit
this advantage, and slump to the
actual market value of the bullion
that it represents. Then it would
be only a 50-cent dollar in purchas
' ing power, and laborers receiving it
would be losers by the difference
between it and a 100-cent dollar.
' It if the purpose of the Republican
party to prevent this threatened de
cline in the value of the tilver dol
lar to those who receive it for wages
od expend it for food and clothing.
This is what is meant by the mainte
nance of the gold standard. As the
case now stands, the silver dollar is
worth as much as a gold dollar, and
the Republicans are in favor of keep
ing it so. In other words, they be
lieve that the present currency sys
tcm, under which all forms of money
gold, silver and paper are equal
ly good, should not be abandoned or
undermined. The demand for cheap
money is resisted by them because it
means that the power of the govern
ment to protect the silver dollar
against depreciation would be taken
away, and it would pass- only at its
intrinsic value. Under those cir
cu instances the laborer would be ob
liged to do 100 cents worth for 50
cents worth of silver bullion." He
would have no choice in the matter,
as the cheap silver dollars, being
legal tender, could be forced upon

voters who work for wages and
whose interests it is to get as much
as possible for their labor. To main

silver dollar at its present 100-cent

A strange coincidence was noticeable
at the bimetallic convention, Thursday
last. Solomon Brown, of Salem, was a
delegate. He is a eon of John Brown of
Harper's Ferry fame, and at one point
of the proceedings the crowd sang "John
Brown's body lies molding in the
grave," in honor of the son present.
Shortly after this oar townsman W. T.
Booth came into the room. Soon after
it was whispered that Mr. Booth's
father was the sheriff who hanged Mr.
Brown's father for the leading part be
took in the insurrection at Harper's
Ferry. The two men were brought to
gether and after conversing awhile it
was found to be a fact. It was said fur,
ther that a man was present who, being
angered at Sheriff Booth for hanging
Brown, took revenge by burning several
buildings that belonged to Mr. Booth.
We were unable to establish the authen
ticity of the latter statement. Valley

SHOULD not be regarded as
a trifling ailment in fact, nature
demands the utmost regularity of
the bowels, and any deviation

often to serious danger. It is
quite as necessary to remove
