that it has followed in the past,
tempered, however, by experience and
broadened, we hope, by contact with
tho throbbing brain and manly, gen

We have made a marked chance in

The Oregonian is always forcible even j Uiik luwcd upon other mvr i.ro.nises
when its premises are utterly fallacious j to pay. In other words, is the currency
and misleading. I" recent editorial it j of the country to based be upon debts or

and would accept it in payment of debts.

other nations when coined into money.
Gold possesses 110 magical properties
in itself. Money is purely a creation of j
man. Cold is used as a money metal j
because of its jieeuliar adaptability or j
that purpose. Neither God nor Nature j
made it money . We read in an ancient j
book, of some authority in these days .
even anionc gold-bugs, that gold was
once made into an image and wor
shipped as a god, but whether it was
unto the image or the gold of which it
was composed that those primitive peo
ple rendered their ignoiant homage, we
do not presume to say. But there is not
the remotest hint of a doubt that the sa-v tliat Missouri's distinguished sena

probably afe to nay that tho house is In

nle will want to first seriously consider
the so-called Haltinioro plan before pass

scheme may to feasible, but there are
certain features which appear visionary,
besides it svjuints strongly in tho direc
tion of the old state bank system of
odious memory. Taken as a whole the
message is a fairly creditable state
paper, but it boars only a few of the
strong characteristics of its author.
