TUESDAY .SEPTEMBER 13. 1SS5
round regarding ex-President Hays,
Theke is a good deal of cheap
"Wit and strained funniness going
liis poultry, his Omaha property, etc.
The fact of his existence is made to
appear as an excellent joke. Just
where all.this exquisite humor comes
in is dimly discernible. It is lime
that the dignity of the people assert
ed itself. E. 33. Hayes was declared
elected president in February, 1877.
He came to the presidency at a mo
ment when there existed great dis
satisfaction with many things that
had been going on. The fact of his
election has sometimes been derided,
but so securely did he sit in the pres
idential chair that the able lawyers
in a Democratic house of representa
tives did not think it worth while to
attempt to oust him. As a matter of
fact, he hold office by a firmer tenure
than any man who preceded or fol
lowed. And the best of it all is he
made an excellent president. He
called round him men of eminence
and character for his counselers:
such men as Evarts, Sherman, and
Devens: and not onlv was his
administration above reproach,
but the atmosphere was such
that many prominent gentlemen of
the country never felt at homo in any
department of it President Hayes'
government was respected at home
and abroad; and when it came time
to elect his successor, the common
argument, and the most effective one
for Garfield, was that the country
was doing so well there was no occa
sion for a change of parties. Ho
brought pacification to the south;
and that section of the country has
been at its best ever since not the
best possible, but the best yet. Hi
record is scrupulously clean and un
assailable to this day, which is a
great thing to say of a public man
Amid all these jokes and gibes about
the ex-president's hens, his farm, etc.,
it is no harm to keep in sight the fact
that Hayes was v. gallant Union gen
oral; that he served his country, that
he made an upright chief magistrate
and that ho preserved his personal
integrity. All these things are good
to remember. The qualities that
Hayes possessed are not So very com
man as to be ignored. Perhaps were
they more general the country would
not be the loser by it.
THE DIVINE HIGIIT OF GOLD.
TJndek the caption of "Wild the
ories," tho American Grocer says:
"The demand for unlimited silver
or nulimited greenbacks is abont as
silly as to urge that the government
should give each man a farm. Farms
are to be had for every man who is
willing to labor and save the money
to buy one, and dollars are to be had
by those who are willing to work for
This is the most extreme argument
we have yet heard in favor of gold; to
put silver on a par with greenbacks
as to intrinsic values. We hardly
expected this from a journal whose
interests lie with dealers in food.
Our contemporary must be aware
that to make gold the only basis of
value is to at once and greatly in
crease its value, to the depreciation
of the price of all stocks on hand. It
is thus legislating to benefit the hold
ers of gold at the expense of hold
ers of food. There has been too
much of this done already; since first
the leeches got hold on the broad
back of Uncle Sam during the war
days. There is not a dollar of the
national debt but has been paid twice
over with legal interest, on account
of this promising to pay gold, and it
is time this never ceasing robbery of
the people came to an end. Wo do
not desire to see repudiation of
any debt but our sense of justice
is to pay a debt in value received
with interest corresponding. The
gold speculators, otherwise money
changers, who exacted and accepted
gold dollars in lieu of paper dollars
loaned, are not ono whit less a set ol
robbers than are the repudiationists.
We may say the people accepted the
offer and the exchange was made ac
cording to law; but what if repudia
tion is dono by law, by the will of
the people, would that make it right?
If gold had never been recognized as
money in this country we would have
had our war debt paid off long ago,
we would never have had the do
pressed business time3 since 1873 and
wewonldnotbe carrying a load of
bonded indebtedness that has created
an aristocracy amongst ns which
grows daily more exclusive and less
republican. Tho government has no
right to legislate in favor of any
special commodity, and gold is a
commodity of changing value, and to
demonetize silver would be to again
rob every person in tho country who
has no gold and to give the proceeds
of the robbery to those who have the
Ir there is anything more genuine
ly funny, more truly humorous, than
tho grieved comment of tho eastern
mugwump papers on the outspoken
utterances of their honest southern
contemporaries and late allies, it has
not appeared up to the hour of going
to press. The sight of one of the
aids and accomplices holding up its
hands in virtuous horror at the sight
of the division of the swag, would
arouse the risibilities of Diogenes.
'Abe women handsomer now than
one hundred years ago?'' is the pres
ent question discussed in Boston.
Were the debate to extend to Oregon,
gallantry no less than truth demands
that we all take the affirmative.
The light from a star which sprang
into luminous existence perchance a
million years ago, has just reached
the earth and awakened considerable
interest among astronomers.
