"Editor Journal: There is much
food for thought in yesterday's press
"dispatch In tegard to the effect on
conditions in Mexico of the fall in the
price of silver. The Associated Tiess
will soon be classed among the silver
fanatics lr It continues to send out
such statements of fact, for it is cer
tainly furnishing campaign docu
ments for the silverltcs.
It is stated that many importing
houses are cancelling their orders for
goods bought abroad, and that the
business of many of them is practi
cally ruined; that they can't get their
money back on their imported goods
because the high premium on gold
makps the goods cost too much, and
t lie people can buy similar goods of
home manufacture more cheaply.
Now is that not exactly the sort of
condition which protectionists strive
to bring about by means of a high
protective tariff ? Is the prosperity of
a country supposed to depend on the
prosperity of its importers of foreign
Now, for tho natural result, see the
dispatch: "Meanwhile home manu
factures are booming, as tho depre
ciation of silver makes a high tariff
wall." What an awful calamity it
must be to have home manufac
tuies booming from such a cause in
stead of from a direct tariff act! Yet
-we have tho testimony or no less a
personage than Mr. McKinley him
self in corroboration of the above
ututement. As reported in the Ore
jjonlan, in a speech to the pottery
workers during the last campaign,
while talking tariff, he Inadvertantly
allowed himself to remind them that
in the seventies, "the premium on
gold acted as an additional protec
tion." Is It possible that, had Mr.
Bryan been elected, our home manu
factures would now bo booming as a
result of "Mexicanizlng our indus
tries?" "Strange to say, tho Mexican dollar
buys as mueh goods as over It did, ex
cept of the imported variety." The
real course of events seems to bo full
of surprises for the gold theorists.
They have been telling us all along
that the depreciation of silver cuts
do ,vn the wages of the Mexican la
borer by reducing the purchasing
-nower of the dollars in which he is
paid. Yet hero we see that he can public attention To a momentous iaco
buy just as much with his dollar, of . which is seldom discussed by English

As a matter of fact, Mexico seems
to be displaying an cnlable amount of

her affairs, and all the pressure to
which she is being subjected by

NOW FOR INDIA.
In contrast with silver standard
Mexico consider sonic facts about gold
A Journal editorial, of August 23
"Christian England has compelled
British India to adopt the cold
standard, wiierc silver has been the
money of 3t'0,000,000 people. By' tills
act eight or ten millions ot England's
subjects have already died of starva
tion. Labor was without employment
and her business industries haye been
completely paralyzed. '1
We take the following from a speeeh
of Senator W. E Chandler (Rep,) de
livered In the senate, February 10,
There is in tho New Yo:k Tribune
of Monday, February 8, 1897, a letter of
the very acutcand able correspondent,
Mr. Ford, in which he states the ter
rible condition of the Indian peas
antry on account of the reduction In
the value of their silver ornaments.
As everyone knows, they have been in
the habit of accumulating their
savings In silver silver dollars and
silver ornaments. India has been a
great market Ifor silver. The esti
mate of tho amount of silver in the
possession of tho Indian peasantry,
In the form of ornaments, Mr. Ford
says, is thirteen hundred and twelve
million ounces. There is no savings
bank system, and tho natives have
been accustomed to hoard silver In
ornaments, worn by men, women apd
children. He goes on to give an esti
mate of the shrinkage in tho savings
of the peasantry by the demonetiza
tion of silver, which he places at $470,
000,000. Mr. President, there Is terrible
misery in India now because when
the peasants, confronted with short
grain crops and famine and pleague,
come forward with their hoarded
stores to diapose of them they find
that they are reduced one-half in
MR. FORD'S LETTER.
"A significant letter has appeared
in tho Times from an expert in Indian
finance. Sir Lenel Griffin. It directs
Investlng their savings in silver o:na-
roents. Now, in their hour of direst
.i .i .nhnHln,.nnl. flint. MiBi-n
has been a tremendouB shrinkage In
the value of their savings and that
they can not sell their ornament with
out material loss.
"If L&bel Qr tWu SUtoi". 0u th
Buthorlt ur Mi". U8lfy Prohyn, that
tho at. ount of silH-r In tho possesilon ,
o' me luuiiui ptMbuiilt) in the form
of uruutiiCiilit Is 1,312,500,000 ounces.
There Is dd saving-bank system. The
natives have been necustomed to
hoard silver In ornaments worn by
men women and chlldrent in former
years government rupees were melted
down and reworked Into ornaments;
iu ume oi distress rrom famine or
plague these ornaments were readily
sold to the village bankers and rupc s
given in exchange nt full weight.
That was when the mints were open
and there was a fixed relation between
tho metal and tho coin. Sir Lcpol
uriain estimates that the stock of
ornaments, whlch was once worth
350,000,000, now has a value 250,-
000,000. This implies a shrinkage of
$470,000,000 in the bavlngs of tho
peasantry. When tho ornaments ard
sold, the natives jeeoiye from 35 to 40
per cent less, weight for weight, than
formerly. Tho rupee has an artificial
value, owing to the closure of tho
mints, and the money 'lender charges
from 10 to 15 per cent to cover his
risk. The conversation of ornaments
Into cash, which has been the main
resourse of the nativo population in
time of famine, Is. thus attended with
ruinous losses. These losses not only
aggravate the -sufferings of the people,
but tend to excite distrust of the
government, which Is held responsi
ble for the shrinkage In value of these
native savings the only available
reserve of the peasantry.
"Tho gravity of tho economic and
political situation in India can
hardly be overestimated. Here is a
great empire with over 300,000,000 sub
jects whose savings have depreciated
to the extent of $470,000,000 through
tho fall of silver; a and millions of
them are suddenly confronted with
their losses when they attempt to sell
their ornaments. It is not strange
that veteran Indian officials are
haunted with apprehension of the
outbreak of another mutiny, 'I liaYe
referred to the weighty statements of
this expert In Indian finance not1 for
tho purpose, of , discussing, the
expediency of rqcppnlng the
mints as a relief measure, but ,in or
der to emphasize, the fact that Eng
land has a vast empiro; which has been
Impoverished by (he decline of silver;
England closed the mints to coin
age of silver and Is responsible for the
distress caused there by adoptiomof
the gold standard,
