1835. tm oil.' Jeffersonian must admit that there is room for an honest difference of opinion upon this subject. Bat, respecting the real merits of the question of free coinage of silver, permit us to suggest that m no way can its merits be so well determined as by clearly pointing out the precise manner in which a return to this pol icy would affect the business and the welfare of the people; and we would be very much pleased to see the views of the Jeffersonian upon this particular phase of the subject. What would be the effect of it, and how would such effect be brought about? A HOPEFUL INDICATION. One of the chief reasons why pub lic sentiment has not hitherto changed more rapidly along the lines of modern economic thought has been the difficulty of reaching the public with modem ideas. The press of the two old political parties has always sought to distort and mis represent these ideas, and the masses of the people have suffered them selves to be deceived by these willing tools...

nn. SOCIAL CONTRASTS. LOOK ON THIS PICTCR. A reporter of t&e Pittsburg (Pa.) Times (rep.) furnishes that paper a picture of the condition of Pennsylvania coal miners from which the following extracts are clipped: "In the valley of Thorns run several collier ies have been built. Some of them are models of mechanical perfection. A part of these mines run only during the summer season, as they sell their coal to lake trade. While the lakes are frozen up nothing is done In the pits. The poor fellows who depend on the mines that ship to the lakes must at best have un steady work. When the meagre employment is lessened by interruptions in the summer from any cause the condition of these men is pitiful. The need of an income, however small, creates a keen competition for what little work there is to be done. The men of Thorns run assert that to-day able and compe tent miners are working at anything they can get that will pay even 75 cents a day. All are not doing that Only the fortunat...

JUNE 12 A Currency of Our Own, Editor Advocate: Having sue ccsded in establishing a nation inde pendent of England to the great dia appointment of those who declared cuch a thing impossible, and predicted net only failure but all kinds of disas ter from the attempt, let's take an other step and emancipate ourselves from the Old World in respect to our money system and currency; and one should think this the easiest thing in tie world to accomplish. And yet it vrill be more diflicult to bring about than the other, because a large and influential element of our people live and fatten on the false and fraudulent system fast anchored to the Briti3h Isle and subject to all the caprices and consequences growing out of that con nection. For example, remember how the export demand for 7 millions caused the financial catastrophe of 1857, and how the recent draft of gold from this country agitated and dis turbed the financial waters. These are examples that have been dupli cated and repeated ...

11 The Decision on the Income-Tax. Editor Advocate: The decision of the supreme court of the United States has injected a newandimpor tant question into the politics of the country, which will add an asperity and vigor to the canvass that the na tion hasn't experienced since 18G0. Therefore, in its inception as well as in many other respects the coming contest will bear a striking parallel to that great campaign. For, as that wa3 rendered vehement by the Dred Scott decision by the same court that the negro race in the country had no rights that a white man was bound to re spect, so this practically decides that a white man other than a millionaire, or one approximating that financial de gree, has any rights that the govern ment in its taxing power is bound to regard. And in this, as shown by Jus tices Harlan and White, it runs di rectly and absolutely in the teeth of a uniform line of decisions, commenc ingwith the illustrious Judge Mar shall down to this day, holding that under our...

Currency and Iiitcrest - The following; editorial from the .Buffalo Express of May 31, will do very well for a gold-bug paper. It must be a rejected comunicatlon which escaped from the waste-basket and got upon the editorial hook: Such statements as those of Sir William Vernon Ilarcourt in regard to bimetallism in England show how hopeless is the expectation, better called a wish, that any international agreement ever can be formed which will restore to silver its ancient place in the coinage of the world. England is satisfied with the gold standard and has no wish to change it. It has been a gold monometallic nation since 1816 and has grown prosperous under the system. Whatever agitation there Is for a change in the monetary sys tem of England comes mostly from the outside. To be sure, Mr. IJalfour has toyed a little with the Topulistic argument about poor man's money, but this is only a bait to catch voters. 'But though England's system may be satisfactory to Englishmen, it does n...

In the American Banker of March 20, we find the following signifi cant paragraph: "01 particular interest thia week waa the arguments made before the United States supreme court in defense of the constitutionality of the inoome-tax. Aside from the purely legal problems whioh are involved there were utterances made by lawyers of eminence in favor of the tax which were inspired by ex iterated conceptions of the growth and power of revolutionary sentiment in the country. Attorney General Oiney intimated that unless the court sustains congress in this case there might coma by and by a revolution whioh would sweep the court as at present organized out of existence, and Mr. Carter, of New York, argued to the effect that the rich men ought to be made to pay a much larger share of their possessions in the way of taxes than the poor, and that a dangerous social upris ing might be avoided by enforcing this prin...

mi. Bat, without actual information of the fact, the reader, however shrewd, cannot be expected to know, at this late day, that in the year 1787, or for twenty-three years before, there lived not far from Richmond, Va., a young woman named Lorretta Lilburne, a descendent of John Lilburne, the Turi tan "leveler," who was, by the Star Chamber in 1637, sent to prison for distributing seditious pam phlets, and upon regaining his liberty in 1640, straightway sued his captors and lecovered dam ages to the amount of two thousand pounds; who led a regiment against the king at Marston Moor and was one of the bravest of the brave on that memorable Cold, pnd a few years later was arrested for treason against Oliver Cromwe'l in writing sedi tious pamphlets, but was acquitted by a jury; who, late in life, became a Quaker because the Quakers renounced all human rulership; and concerning whom Hume's History of England declares that he was "the most turbulent, but the most upright and courageous, o...

1855. LiJL V C3 &w WHAT IDIOCY! What absolute idiocy is all this talk about 50-cenfc dollars! There is no finch thing in existence in this country. A. silver dollar or a green back will bay as much of any com modity and pay as much debt or taxes as a cold dollar. Dollars are not made to eat, drink or wear. They are absolutely worthless, except for their use in the payment of debts and taxes and the purchase of thin? that people need. Eeader, what do yon care what a dollar is made of so long as it will buy what you want? Have you any other use for dollars? It is true there is a difference in the commercial price of the commod ities of which money is now made. Upon this fact, the sordid money ad vocates base the sophistry by which they seek to lead the people through deception to their ruin. Do you not know that when a commodity is ton verted into money, it ceases to be a commodity, and that so long as it remains money it has no other value than that given it by the fiat of the go...

A Hfgh Private On Income-Tax. Editor advocate: "A cat may look on a king," says the old adage On the same principle, a high private in the legal ranks may have his say about the recent decision of the United States supreme court on the income tax law. Chief Justice Fuller, deliver ing the opinion of the court, said that the income-tax law is unconstitutional on the ground of being a "direct tax,' and was not imposed under the provi sion of section 9, article 1, of the United States constitution, which reads as follows, to-wit: 4No capitation or other direct tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census or enumeration heretofore directed to be given." It is not claimed that this is a cap! tationtax. Then is it a direct tax? For if it is a direct tax, then no lawyer will dispute the justice of the decision, inasmuch as congress did not appor tion it in proportion to the census. But if it is not a direct tax, then no reason able legal or other mind will claim for a moment that ...
