CARLISLE S ADDRESS TO
If we are to judge by the space de
voted to it by all the leading- papers In
Chicago, the most Important event that
has happened In that gr.t city In recent
months was Secretary Carlisle's address
to the worklngmen. In the Auditorium,
last Wednesday night
Bays one cf these papers:
"The audience was made up largely of
of those whom he came here for the
special purpose of addressing the people
who work for waxes, who have been
deluged with the oratory of cheap money
advocates, and who have had but few
opportunities to hear the honest side of
the money question clear.y stated to them
by a public man of high standing and
unquestionable ability on fiscal subjects.
Whatever may have been the previous
sentiments of those worklngmen who
were fortunate enough to hear Mr. Car
lisle, when they left the Auditorium they
were convinced that Si-cenl dollars were
not the dollars for them, and that to
vote to be paid In that sort of money
would be to cut their own throats."
The same conclusion will Inevitably be
reached by any wage-worker who will
take the trouble to get and read the
logical argument, backed by Incontro
vertible farts, of the secretary of the
Mr. Carlisle began with the assertion,
the correctness of which cannot be suc
cessfully challenged, that financial and
Industrial disturbances and panics affect
. worklngmen more aerioualy and injur!-
- ensly than, any other class of man. La
bor can! prosper only when wac sr
' paid In sound, 190-cent money; Cor when
the evrrency Sactuatea in value and be-
' cwmee debased there Is diminished em
ployment, and those who do get work
are paid In money which has an uncer
tain purchasing power and leas' value,
and It afreets them the same as a reduc
tion of wages. So it becomes a ques
tion of vital Importance to all classes
working for wages whether free silver
Coinage on the IS to 1 basis would or
would not cause financial and industrial
disturbances and panic How can con
gress change the money standard dean
to dollars intrinsically worth Z0 cents
each without creating a terrible disturb
ance In the labor market? It Is im
possible. After describing the unsuccessful at
tempts which had been made in this
country to keep both gold and silver
dollars in circulation when there was an
Intrinsic difference of value of bttle more
than a cent between tbem, he shored
the impossibility of keeping both In cir
culation when silver dollars were worth
intrinsically only half what the gold dol
lar were. The effect oull be the Im
mediate expulsion of more than half a
billion of gold and the shrinkage in value
one half of ttlS,(JU0,UJU of legal tender sli
ver, and $3tf.W0,0ul of greenbacks, and
122U,()",00i) of national bank notes.
This would reduce the currency more
than two-thirds In Its power to do busi
ness and hire labor, and what was left
would be depreciated and fluctuating In
"We should descend '.iy single step
from the sound standard of value to sli
ver monometallism, with a contracted
and at the same time a depreciated, de
based currency, a financial experiment
which has no good reced,:nt in the
monetary history of the world," raid the
That experiment would be followed by
a universal panic which would prostrate
Industry, and discharge labor, and cut
down wages for a long time. During
that distressed period there would be
little employment for workmen. But
when Industry did revive waos would
be paid in an unstable and depreciated
currency worth but 00 cents on the dollar.
Then Mr. Carlisle told his hearers
giving them an abundance of figures to
back up his statement how '.'uges never
fell as rapidly or as low as during the
depreciated money war period. Prices
advanced far more rapidly than wages,
so that the workingman was continually
getting less and less for his labor.
Drawing his Illustrations from the
events of today, the secretary told how
the fall In the value of silver attend
ing free coinage at 16 to 1 had forced
down the reward of labor In Chile, Japan,
Mexico, and other free coinage silver
monometallic countries, and all IS to 1
countries are silver monometallic, with
gold expelled from circulation. In the
first-named country labor gets sages of
only about half the value of what It
did twenty years ago, though nominally
It gets a little more. But the wages are
now paid In cheap sliver. 8ald the sec
retaryand every workingman should
keep that point In mind:
"You are asked by the advocates of 11
to 1 free coinage to Join them In destroy
ing one-half the purchasing power of the
money In which you are paid, and im
pose on yourself the task of doubli j ih
nominal amount of your wagi.s hen ii'tt-r:
that Is, to struggle for another q-iartcr
of a century, and perhaps lonti-r to
raise your wages in a depreclat. '1 r-ir-rency
to a point which will enali- you
to purchase with them as Tiuch uf th
necessaries of life as you can ptirr haF
now; snd If, after yev of contention,

witfn that they would pnvuiv at the
higher price of commodities Just v!it
they will procure now at the existing
prices, hit would you have g;ilmil by
the. i-linngc from the new to the old con
ditions Then the secretary went on to state
that free coinage menaced not only the
character, amount snd purchasing power
of the future camlmt of tho American
laborer, but aWo the safety and value
of a very considerable part of his past
earnings. If the panic which the adop
tion of free coinage would cause did not
bankrupt the savings hanks, where the
thrifty and provident worklngmen have
deposited their money, still the depositors
would gvt back only half of what they
put In. Uf the H,$ia.tW,xV In such
banks, the 4.$T!i.y depositors would re

The above I only a brief summary ot
the secretary's argument, which should
be read carefully by all. especially by
farmers and worklngmen. His speech is
a plain, straightforward, business-like
talk, which will sweep away the false
hoods which Tillman and Weaver ami
some of the other labor demagogues have
been seeking to deceive Western working
The legality of gold contracts has been
affirmed again by the ..nlted States su
preme court In a Mississippi vase. The
Tvee Foard was empowered by the
Legislature to sell bonds to raise money
for river -mprovement purpose. The
board Issued bonds which were made
payable In gold. Their validity was con
tested, and the stata supreme court held
the bonds were void because the law
dkl not authorise their payment In one
particular kind of money. The reason
ing was much the same as that of the
Ohio supremo court In a case where the
city ot Cincinnati endeavored to sell gold
bonds under a law which simply granted
the power to sell ponds. It was held
In both instances that no one particular
kind of money could be selected and the
bonds made payable In that, even though
better terms could be secured thereby.
The bonds must be made payable In
"lawful money." The supreme court of
the United States made short work of
the fine reasoning In this Mississippi case
which would compel municipal corpora
tions In many Instances to pay higher
Interest because explicit power to sell
gold bonds had not been given, and de
cided that the levee bonds were good.

Visit Growing Warrenton.
Warrenton, Or., April ITth, lXsS.
To the Astoraln:
While reading an article In the Astortan
of today, under the heading of "Astoria
has an opportunity," it jccurrwl to me
that the remarks of a "prominent real
estate man" in said arti?le ire worthy of
the careful consideration of every As
torlan having the Interest and welfare
of the city at heart. But why rol In
clude the proposition of wharves and aa
t.T lrotitap as a matter of equal Im
portance with that of grades upon your
What are the facts, and what Induce
ments are now offered for the invest
ment of capital In your city In developing
the latter class of property tolay? No
I'.xed limits to where wharves can be
1 ullt. and no settled policy: and In this
connection the writer's experience will
Illustrate the workings of this system,
and the point I desire to make. About
one year ago A. C. Fisher and myself
petitioned the honorable city council for
permission to extend our wharf In Block
561,. This right we demanded before
granting the right of way for the rail
road across our dock, and through our
warehouse. We were assured by Coun
cilman Welch and other members of that
body, that there would not be the least
trouble about the matter, and that the
right would be speedily granted to ex
tend our wharf to the harbor lines.
In the meantime the right of way com
mittee was pressing us for the deeds, and
upon receiving a pledge from Mr. Ham
mond that the railroad company would
not molest our property nor construct
the road across it until the council grant
ed us the right to extend our wharf as
above, we therefore, and under this
agreement, surrendered the right of way
deeds across this property.
Well, only three hundred and sixty-five
days have gone by, and no matter if our
piles and materials have far a long time
been ready with which to construct this
wharf. Really there Is no hurry, for As
toria is only four score years old, and as
long as the railroad does not destroy our
warehouse and Mr. Hammond says It
won't we can let her sl-p on undisturb
ed, for is she not the largest town In
all the land without a railroad? Surely
she ought to rest until her engineers
shall have had time to estalillh giad. s
that can be maintained through the ad
ministration of one council. When it
comes to harbor lines, however, we are
between th d 1 and the deep sea. I'ncle
Sam says, "You cin build Aharvi s to my
harbor lines." One council says "yes;"
the next council says "No," and the third
says, yes, you can build; but in tase we
sometime conclude that your wharf ex
tends too far, you must removo the
same (see report of committe--); or per
hr.ps pull up a few piles from time to
time as the committee may direct, and
see what effect it will have uiion the
Well, Hhep on, brother: we will not dis
turb your slumber. We have a little
business to attend to at Warrenton, and
Flavel Just now, and will trust our old
I'ncle to fix the harbor lines on this
side, and should you wake up while we
are building to the harbor lines, come
over and see how It works. We are al
ways glad to extend to you a helping
hand. Indeed, our affection for you Is
akin to that which we would bear for an
aged, feeble and loving mother.
D. K. WARREN.
THK BUSINESS OUTLOOK.
There has been no great progress made
toward a better condition of things In the
business situation during March. Trade,
as a rule, has been dull. The aggregate
volume Is of large proportions certainly,
but it lacks snap and vlor, and fails
to show the improvement that was pretty
confidently counted upon a while i.go.
An exceedingly tight money market
throughout the country has been one of
the unsatisfactory features. This ha
undoubtedly b"n due, in some measure,
tu um !,-g.; ; bsorptlon of fund by tho
gnvi-rr: i ' 'it ,n c'jitm-ctlO'i with thf bond
l.j:u-, b';t. tti' re 'ir; a number of other
caue c 'd.m'.'itlng to a stringent money
HiMni'lor . The demands upon the West
ern barilif, U-n rather unusual from
the fact t.rtt tfi" low pri-v of grain has
preventer the rnork-tln(.' of but a small
proportion of last year's crop. Farmers
iBe largest piece of Good Tobacco

are determined to hold their corn for
better prices, and tho result has been
that the phenomenal crop of 1 has, up
the present time, had little dire.-, inrtu
ence in Improving the business slluntton.
Another reason for tight money in the
West has been found In a disposition in
Eastern financial circles to scan est-
ern co'nnierHul paer with much more
than ordinary carefulness. There hus.
Indeed, been a tendency to stop loans
altogether In many channels where West
ern concears have been In the nanlt or
financing Their paper The reason for
that does not seem to be In any changed
condition of Western cr.Hllt. but simply
In the disposition toward ultra-conservs-trveness
for the time being In some of
the Eastern money circles. That action
has thrown some extra pressure upon
the Western banks, so that their loans
have been pretty well up to the limit,
in spite of the fact that the ordinary
local demand has not been In anywise
Affairs in connection with government
financial operations have been extn-mely
satisfactory. The government's gold re.
serve has been hullt up to the hlrhest
level It has touched during the present
administration. There have been no ex
ports of gold of any consequent, and,
taken nltopether, the situation In na
tional finance Is as satisfaciory as ths
most sanguine could have expected. At
the close of March the iwld reserve had
reached nearly i.imi,im. The to'al
amount of gold so far received l.y the
government on account of the last I ond
sale Is r'l.ISS.CT: of which IW.Kl.ri Is
fnr principal. llo.fils.'M for prvmlums, and
rH5.757 for Interest, which leaves i.pproxl
mately tS.Uuw.Kw yet to be paid under the
conditions of Secretary Carlisle's circu
lar. With the beginning of April the money
situation showed distinct tmprovment.
On the other hand, there Is some possi
bility, Indeed a probability, of gold ex
ports, so that an easier money situation
may be counteracted by the lentlmental
effect which a loss of gold st the pres.
ent time would have. There are no Indi
cations of marked Improvement In the
general volume of trade, ami the out
look for any marked change In the situ
ation within the next thirty days does
not appear especially promising. The
railroads are doing quite as well as
might be expected, and are probably far
better than any other great Industry In
the country. That, of course. Is an en
couraging Indication. While there is
nothing of a distinctly favorable char
acter to chronicle. It Is well to remember
that there Is also nothing of an unfavor
able character to note. Commer-dal fail
ures have not been extensive, and the
whole foundation of the commercial
structure Is, as a general proposition. In
exceedingly satisfactory shaM. We are
In a position to build up solidly a super
structure of prosperous times when the
wheels once start In that direction, but
