The new administration does not find
any necessity for selling bonds to keep
up the gold reserve. The amount of gold
in the treasury since March I has been
greater than at any time in many years,
and Is now over llM.WO.OOO.
It is a curious coincidence that the
legal right to re-lnstatemera of a dis
charged government employe, under the
rules of the civil service, was decided
in two different sections of the country
sxt he same time, and in the same way.
One case was tried before Judge Jenkins,
of the Federal Court at Milwaukee, and
the other before Judge Cox, In the cltjj
of Washington. Both these eminent Jur
ists followed exactly the same line of
reasoning, and arrived at the same con
clusion, namely, that the civil sen-Ice
law does not provide for the making of
rules by the president which shall have
the effect of law and be enforced by the
courts. The president has the right to
make rules for the goverment of his sub
ordinates, and thus bring the civil ser
vice Into general harmony with his own
purposes and will, but he alone can en
force them. No employe of the govern
ment acquires a vested right to his em,
ployment under them, and If he has any
complaint to make because his superior
has violated them that complaint must be
made to the president and not to a court
of law or equity. These decisions appear
to be so clearly founded on right reason
that m all probability they' will not be
appealed. It must be taken as settled,
therefore, that If a government officer
sees lit to discharge a subordinate, no
matter how firmly be may be entrenched
by the civil service law, there is no rem
edy short of obtaining tho Interference
of the president
tinplate Industry dates practically from
the pnssHge of the JdVKInley tariff act,
at which time th American market was
wholly supplied by South Wales. Mr.
O'Bcirne traces the gradual expansion o(
the Industry In this country, and the use
of the domestic article In place of thai
formerly Imported from Wales, Siunmlnii
up the situation for the Inst calendar
year, he says. "The position of the Hr.t
tsh export trade may thus Ik summed
up. The Interior market was, as a whole,
lost to British exivrtcis, but the ive.it
packers continue,! to use a certain num
ber of 'drawback' plates, and there was
will a limited consumption of I'-Li-ii
plates for certain special purposes. I n
der existing rates of duty, therefore."
the report proceed, "and at present
prices, the only section of the Amevic.isi
market In which KhltUh plates or ordi
nary grades exclusive of 'drawback'
plates) can continue In the Ion run to
compete Is the Pacltlc coast market, rep.
resenting an annual consumption of about
W.tXO.Ort) pounds. In other portions of
the United States the only Importations
that can be expected Is of a limited num
ber of special brands suited for special
purposes. And this limited. Importation
can only last so long as the demand Is
not of sufficient importance to Induce
native manufacturers to make the neces
sary arrangements for producing the pe.
cial qualities of tinplate, which they are
undoubtedly able to do."
A BLESSING TO THE BABIES OF THE

The prospect is very encouraging that
the distribution of pasteurised milk, de
void of all mlerobic germs, among the
children of the poor at a nominal price,
will become general in the large cities
of the United State's. While this benev
olence will be a blessing to the babies,

Ject. Another iK.int of Importance in
usnlg this sterling remedy Is. that it
should be taken with regularity and persistence.
There should be no misunderstanding
concerning the status of the tr-onetary
commission. There Is apparently an at
tempt t-;ir.g made In certain quarters to
des-troy Its prestige and Impede Its work
by alleging that It is assuming congres
sional powers and than it Intends to die
tate a policy of reform to the administra
tion and to congress. Nothing can be
further from the fact. It Is simply an
advisory body, the outcome of the In
dianapolis convention, brought together
for the purpose of formulating In a prac
tical shape the resolutions of that con
vention. For thirty years the people of
this country have been carrying on busi
ness under a financial system that Is both
complex and dangerous. As often point
ed out, we have nine different kinds of
money, or what passes for money, and
with the exception of gold It all depends
on the government credit. This is a con
stant menace to national insolvency, for
If the government at any time should fail
to redeem its notes in gold our whole
financial structure would topple over like
a house of cards, and widespread ruin
would be the result. The great business
interests of the country feel this, and It
was this feeling that prompted the In
dianapolis convention, one of the most
representative bodies of business men
that ever assembled In this country.
The commission will study and discuss
the present monetary condition of the
country, will receive suggestions and ar
guments from all quarters, and will then
draw up a report embodying a plan to
simplify our system of currency and
banking. Whatever measures are pro
posed by that report will be neither rad
ical nor revolutionary. Knowing what
the evils are, the commission will suggest
the remedy. After this Is done the re
sponsibility for action will He with congress.

NEW MEDICAL DISCOVERY.
A Positive Cur for Dyspepsia.
Hugh O'Belrne, second secretary of the
British embassy at Washington, was de.
tailed by his government to make an In
vestigation and report on the condition
and prospects of the American tinplate
industry. His report has been Issued by
the foreign office as an official document.
It certainly makes interesting reading
to the democrats who staked their repu
tation for statesmanship and political
prophecy on the prediction that tinplate
could not be made In this country. Ac
cording to the report, the United States
This may read as though we were put

some cas s thoy do give a slight tem-

stomach simply makes matters worse.
What the stomach wants is a rest. Now
how can the stomach become rettd. re

nourished and sustained.

also the secret of the uniform success of

or eggs almost as perfectly as If the

The stomach may be ever so weak yet
these tablets will perform the work of
digestion and tht body and brain will
be properly nourished and at the same
time a radical, lasting cure of dyspepsia
will be made, because the much-abubed
stomach will be given, to some extent,
much-needed rest. Your druggist will
tell you that of the many remedies adver
