WEDNESDAY, AUGUST :(), 1800.
PAYMENT OP NATIONAL DEBT.
One or the iKWHtfl of koIcI Htmidnrd
llcpubllcati cnmpalKii orators mid
wrltcrH In the claim Hint wo linvo al
most paid our jm-nt war debt. Lot us
look to the offlidal facts and m-oJuhI
hnw much we liuvo paid, and what
part of It wo Jinvo paid. In rouiul'iiill
lions the public debt rcuohud Its maxi
mum August III, 1805, and amounted
to W.84 1,000,000. On the same date
the "luteicM. bourliiK lxiwled debt,"
wiih $1,1011,000,000. See report Comp
troller 18i).". vol. i,p!ii'ino.
AridliiL'thc last one hundred mil-
lions Issued since this report of 1805
was made, I ho debt, now Is $1)11 ,000,
000. Here there Is a decrease In the
"Interest bearing bonded debt," since
1805, Ito years, of only 9188,000,00, or
$0,1100,000 annually. That Is not much
to boast of. Ills however the fact as
1 tlud It In the otllclal report.
Hut let us see how muuh they havo
reduced It incasurcdlln farm products.
Exceptlnu' about $200,000,000 Issued
beforo the war,and payable In dollars,
and for which thoKovornmonthad not
silver, or uold coin, and which In ood
faith should bo paid lncoln;aud about
another $200,000,000 of 10-10 bonds
which by law wcro payablo expressly
In coinnot old coin all the balance
of this Interest bearing bonded debt
was by express provision of the Icnul
tender act, payable in tho unine. kind
of money tholrownors had paid, and
the Kovcrmnciit had received for them
k'Kiil tendor preonbacks. Let us tlion
reduce this 400,000,000 of coin debt to
tt lojrul tender basis, by million CO per
cent or 200,000,000. Thus August III,
1805, after tho war was over, when tho
irovcrniiiunt was not under necessity
to borrow money, nor to Ismio bouds,
tho Interest IwarliiK bonded debt, re
corded In tho money which thoy had
paid for tho bonds; and which tho
Kovernment had promised to pay, and
they had promised to receive, and
which measured all producte, at a to
tal or $1,300,000,000.
Now It Is $011,000,000, and payablo
by loan In coins, either silver or gold,
nt tho option of tho Rovornmcnt.
Tho nvoniRo valuo of an aero of the
farmer's corn In 1805, was $17; In 1895,
$0.01. As tho debt then stood In
Rreenbacks It could have been paid
with 77,000,000 acres. As It It stands
now, payablo In coin, It will purchase
mid It will take 131,000,000 ucreato
pay It, an Incrcaso of 54,000,000 acres.
Wheat was worth $17.00 per acre;
how 80.00. Then 74,000,000 acres
would havo paid tho dobt; now tt will
take 130,000,000, an Increase of 50,000,r
000 acres. A burred of- pork was worth
then $29; now only l!l.W.' 'U'hoji tho
debt could havo been pjild with 15,000,-
OOO barrels; now It wniftnkbj70,000,000,
an Increase of 30,000,000 barrels. Wool
was worth $1 per pound, and 1,I!0S),000,
000 would pay the debt; now the same
class of wool Is worth less than 20
cents, and It will take 1,555,000,000, or
more than four times what It would
have taken In 18(15; cotton was worth
In 18(55, 83 cents; In 1872, liefore the
demonetization of silver, 22 cents; In
181)5, but 7 cents. Tho averiiRe value
of tho farmers' horses, then, was
$70.-10, and 10 millions horses would
have paid the debt; now the average
value Is only $3ll.07,'nn(l it now takes
27 millions of the farmers' horses,
to pay what rcmatnsi
This last statement Is the more re
markable, when wo realize that the
real Intrinsic worth of the average
horse Is now, on account of the
wonderful Improvement In breed at
least 25 per cent above that of the
average horse of 1805. This would
iiiako Die average iior.su now, worth
$100 thou. Hut he Is now wortli but
$33, a lop of $(17 on each horse. All
farm products tell the same doleful
story. .Hut leaving these let us go to
manufactured articles and see what
tho effect is there.
Pig Iron jior ton 1805, $10.12, 1805
$13.01. liar Iron $100.38 then, now
$30.02. Cut nails then $7.03 per keg,
now $1,17. Standard sheeting per
yard (1805,) 38 cents, 1805, 51.
rrlnts 29 cents 1805, now fh Shirt
ings 50 then, now 10. ir tho reader Is
curious let him take his pencil and
liguro a little, lie will 111 id that tills
remaining bonded debt has a purchas
ing power now of 2 times as much
pig and bar; 3 2-3 times as many, kegs
of nails; 4 2-3 times as many yards of
sheeting; It 0-7 times of prints, nnd 3
times as much shirting as It would
buy In 1805. Tho samo may truth
fully bo said of the monthly wage of
tho farm laborer. It will take nearly,
if not twice tho amount.
