| Carl Schurs has issued an open let-
I ter to Lyman J. Gage, secretary o f the
I treasury, in which he takes the latter
to question In regard to his reported
interview o f Aug. 2«. In this inter
view, Mr. Gage sought to alarm busi
ness Interests by suggesting that Wil
liam J. Bryan, if elected, could direct
his secretary o f the treasury to pay off
In silver all government obligations
payable In “ coin." Mr. Schurz prac
tically charges Mr. Secretary Gage
with having glren out Ills interview for
a political purpose under cloak o f pro
tecting creditors o f the government.
Mr. Schurs’s letter Is as follows:
Dear Sir—The newspapers of Aug. 26 published
an interview with you in which you were quoted
aa saying that “ there la no doubt Mr. Bryan, if
elected president, could order W'» secretary of the
treasury to make payment in silver of all tho
public debt payable in coin and for all current dis
bursements of the government aa well, which
amount to from $1,600,'XX) to $1,750,000 per day,
and that he would glva such an order, too, is very
certain. If he Is in the same mind that he was in
1896.” You went dh to say that, although Mr.
Bryan “ would have great difficulty In doing that
at once,” owing to the amall ailver resources of
the government, yet he might accomplish it in
time, as the mere announcement of such a pur
pose “ would step the inflow of gold and corre
spondingly increase payments Into the treasury
of silver and ailver certificates;” that this would
practically put the government on a ailver basis,
ruin its credit and bring incalculable disaster up
on the business interests of the country.
Having for a great many years taken a deep and
somewhat active interest in the establishment of a
sound monetary system in the United States, 1
may without impropriety address to you a few
remark* in reply to your public statement. 1 cm-
phatically deny, Mr. Secretary, that the danger
set forth by you in your interview really exists
and that any president will be able to do what
you aay might be done unless the Republican
party in control of the government in both its
legislative and executive branches proves Itself
utterly dishonest in its professed purpose to main
tain the gold standard.
This denial is not based upon tbs reasoning of
those of your critics who seek to Bhow by figures
that a president desiring ever so much to put the
country upon a silver basis would lack the means
for doing so. On the contrary, for argument’ s
suke, I will accept all you say on that point, but
you omit to mention a fact of decisive impor*
If the executive, as you say, professes the dis
cretion of "paying silver in settlement of ail In
terest on tlie public debt not specifically payable
in gold and of making its daily disbursements to
(is creditors in silver," it is owing to a flaw in
the currency law patwed at the lant session of con
gress. a law which, as tlie spokesman of the Re
publican party promised, was to put the gold
standard upon an impregnable basis. It was sug
gested at the lime by some of its critics that this
law was purposely so manipulated by Republican
politicians in the senate as to lesve the |>ossibil-
Ity of the subversion of tin- gold standard by ex
ecutive action open In order to enable the Re
publicans In the prrm-nt (»residential campaign to
say that the election of a Republican president
was absolutely necessary to save the gold standard
and to prevent dreadlul economic disaster.
Whet liar any such scheme entered into that leg
islation I do not assume to determine. Certain it
Is, howeter, that this feature of the low is now
so used, and that you. Mr. Secretary, actually tio
oo use it for the evident purpose oi alarming the
business community and the possessing clasaea
1 hardly need to say to you that the spreading
of false alarms of this Lind is a very questionable
and responsible thing for anybody, and especially
for a secretary of the treasury. And 1 call your
prediction o ' the possibilities specified by you
and of the diausi-rs sure to follow a false alarm
for s very simple reason. Whoever may be elect
ed president )n Nov. »(. there will be another ses
sion of congress before he will take office on
March 4, 1901. Tlie Republicans will have strong
majorities in both houses of that congress. The
executive, too, will be in their hands. They will,
therefore, be able to make such laws as they
please. They will then have full power and am
ide opportunity to pass any legislation required
to make it utterly Impossible to any president to
break down the gold standard in the way you,
Mr. Secretary, describe in your Interview.

An Important scientific expedition to
Java uml the Celebes will very shortly
be undertaken by Professor Ilaeckel of
Jena university, the eminent Siennan
biologist. Very grent zoological Inter

object which Professor Haeckel has in
view is the discovery o f further re

or “ missing link.” It may lie remem
bered that about six years ago Dr. Du
