WSDND3DAY, AIQU3T 27, 1895
A Portlaml correspondent who writes
on the money qurstlon confound? tho
crodlt of the RovornnjQnt with Its flat
power. Tlio flat power or tho govern
ment Is undoubtedly a great actor In
a currenoy system. Tho people are apt
to conclude that whatever Is stamped
as money by the govornment will ro
as money. No doubt tho confidence of
tho people In tholr government Is the
groatcst oleruont of strength and sol-
vnnnv for uiiv currenoy HV-stem. But
tho flat of tho government and the
confidence of the people are both de
pendent upon tho compliance of the
government with certain elomontnrj
principles of finance. Ono of thffo I?
that all paper uiUHt Ins rodeemahlo lit
metallic monoy of certain Intriwilr
value. This our correspondent donle.t
Ho assorts that moro Intrlnsla valuu It
given by the stamp of the government
than by the commtrclal value tliut
Inheres in tho metal of which the coins
are made. ThlB Is tho old grcenbi.ck
Idea, But as we undorttand It, tho flat
of tho government was only made per
feet when It mado Its credit perfect,
and was prepared to redeem overy one
of them tn coin. Atthattlmosllvor was
still counted by tho government and
by tho peoplo as metnlllo redemption
money along with Bold. Tlioro was
some silver among tho people and some
In tho banks and In tho hands of Ihe
government. But whatever thoro was,
It was redemption coin, equal with
gold. Tho bullion was at n promlum.
If that wore tho cjibo now thoro would
bo no froo colnago question to settle, as
no silver would bo presented for coin
age Now all our silver nnd our silver
papor monoy Is not redemption money
but tokon and credit monoy which tho
government Is compelled to redeem in
gold. On $ 100,000,000 of gold reserve,
originally Intended to guarantco tho
redemption of tho greenbacks amount
Ing to 1335,000,000, tho government is
virtually carrying a credit curronoy
system In volumo equal to about
1,003,033,0), or slxtoon dollars of
currenoy to one dollar of redemption
In Addition to this unusual Inflation
of curronoy tho government Is conduct
ing a tarlfl systom that is creating a
deficit of about (100,000,000 a year. It
must borrow gold to dofray tho ordi
nary eiponses of government. If there
were a surplus of fllty or a hundred
millions In-tho treasury, uo ono would
hear of any run on the currouoy, or of
any attempt to drain tho gold out ol
tho treasury. Tho Intrinslo value or
the monoy of our country would not be
called In question. Tho first thing to
be done la to regulate tho receipts of
the treasury bo the income will be
larger thau tho outgo. Btop that leak
and you havo douo half towards a
restoration of our fluances, When we
have to borrow gold to pay tho running
expenses of tho government, It stands
to reason that our currency that Is all
mado redeemablo in gold will also bo
oomo a burden on the government.
Natural conditions all over tho world
neom to be uniting to break down our
single gold standard system that we
have started In on. Clevoland.to main
tain his Wall street friends, must turn
his baok on the greenbacks and on the
Oliver monoy. Ho baa discredited them
by a tarlfl system that leaves him
without rovenues. Before he can do
anything for our shrinking tottering
patchwork money system he must
bohter up his empty treasury. Ho Is
doubly In tho dutches of the gold
ayndlcato, If ho had the courage to Bay:
"I will not redeem sliver certificates In
anything but silver dollars as the law
says; I will not recelyo nnything but
gold for customs duties; I will not issue
any bonds except to the people, luter.
eat aud principal payable only to
American oltUens; If Wail etreet wauta
to do anything to bring on a black Frl
day let them do It at their peril," he
would bo in a tar different position to
appeal to the patriotism of the country
to support the government lu Its time
of peril aud need thau ho is In placing
the whole country at the mercy or the
gold syndicate run In connection with
tb banker or EugUuid. But the
whole situation Illustrates the necea-
Children Cry tor
eity of a broader basis of intrinslo value
metal monoy at tho foundation of our
curreucy system. We need all the
ajtver aud all tho gold as full legal
tendor money, mado so and kept so by
law, and all paper money Issued direct
by tbo government and redeemablo ou
presentation lu coin of Intrinslo value.
Superintendent Palue, of tho Insano
asylum, Is beginning ft great reform
tho weeding out of persons not prop,
erly at tho Insane asylum to be cured
of Insanjly, but there to bo kept ns
an act of charity. Thoro are peveral
hundred such, and tho caro and cost of
keeping them is a great burden on the
slate aud Interferes with tho proper
caro aud euro of those really lusane
andcapableof Improvement. Of course,
these unlortunato persons aro not to
blame for being there, having been put
off on tho state by tho county authori
ties and ofteu by their own relatives.
Ho sweeping rcnio val of such persons
should be mado, but they should bo
gradually returned to their homes nnd
to the counties whero they oamo from.
Notice should bo given that paupers.
Honlles, Inebriates and cflemluiucH, thut
uro clearly uot Insane, but tho victims
of appetites and .mere old age, shall
not bo unloaded on tho stnto asylum
for luBano, as though It were a slate
poor house. An asylum or hospital for
insane Is In tho strict sense of the teim
uot a poor houso, or charitable Inslu
linn. If Its churncler ns n hospltul for
tbo really luwuie Ih clearly defined and
closely adhered to under tho new ud
uilnlstrutlon, a great work of reform
will be accomplished, not only for the
lnsan who are sent tluVe for treatment
and recovery, hut fur tho taxpayer.
Thoro will bo no moro need forn brunch
charitable institution any whro lu the
state than for n brauoh stulo prison lor
a peoplo who numbor 400,000. Tho
reform must come from tho counties.
They nro now unlondlug nil sorts of
dofectlvo population on tho stnto insane
asylum that does not belong there.
Tho stato needs u new pructico at the
asylum and a now praotlco act for tho
counties. Thrco Jnuauo commissioners
would bo a far safer set of men to com
mit patients to tho asylum, than one
doctor who Is ofton only intent on re
lieving the community or getting his
feo. Buporlutendont Paluo is to bo
commouded In reducing tho pormunont
population of the asylum to iho lowest
point consistent with safety nnd

A VICTOR? FOR BIMETALLISM
The smoke of tho recent elecloal bat

the now parllment boon convened, aud
tho various sections or special polltlcul
Interests which together make up
tho prlnicplo parties In politics thero
have made estimates of their respectlYO
gnlns and losses. Among all these
none seem to contemplate tho result
with more satisfaction thau tho blmot-
alllstf. The British bimetallic lenguo
olulniB that ft cjuvhh shows no less
than eight members of tho Salisbury
government nro favorablo to bimetal

conservative members of parliament

others of like standing has been formed
for the purpoeo of promoting lutornn
tlouiil bimetallism. Conclusive ovl
