THE PLACE OF SILVER IN THE NEW CURRENCY SYSTEM. Silver has been given a good place in our new currency system. All has been done for it that can be done with safety and the management of the treasury will have to bo both prudent and loyal if it be not found that more nas been done for silver than ought to have been tone. If there has been error it has been on the side of friendliness to an increased use of silver. There is less than one silver dollar in circulation in this country for each in habitant. The country simply does not want to use the dollar of the fathers. It is too big and heavy. Therefore the silver has to circulate fey proxy— in the form of silver certifi rates. There has been a demand for more fractional silver than the law provided for coining. The statute fixed the limit at 60 million dollars, but in obedience to an absolute necessity the government has issued 8Q millions in fractional silver. The new act authorizes the coinage of enough to bring it up to 100 milli...

EXPANDED AMERICA. No. 2. The Brave Beginning of a Continuing . . Course of American Expansion and Imperialism. When in 1783 the British government reached a frame of mind that enabled our commissioners to treat for peace on the basis of independence for the thir teen original colonies, a strict construc § tion of the title to the territory claimed ; . ; by. those colonies would have limited ..the new republic to the Atlantic sea board east of the Alleghany mountains. . It is true that some of the colonies laid claim to indefinite extensions west, such claims having been based on char tered rights granted at different times by kings of England; but these claims lyere conflicting, and the territory granted by these charters belonged .to France and Spain and continued so to belong until after the French and Indian war, which began in 1754, and in which the British soldiers and American militia jointly won the region east of the Mis sissippi from the French and annexed it to the British...

EXPANDED AMERICA. No. 9. Imperialism, Militarism and the Monroe Doctrine. There has been a deal of din about "imperialism," but no anti-imperialist of note has yet ventured to define what Mr. Bryan's party means by the term. Imperialism can mean one or other of two tilings or both of them: that it is the purpose of the Republican party to enter upon a national policy of world aggression and expansion, the acquisi tions to be governed by, but not to be come a part of, the United States; or it may mean that the purpose of the Re publican party is to overthrow the re public and establish a monarchy on its ruins; or it may mean that both of these will result from Republican pol icy. "'What is meant has not been de> fined, for in order to make the needful explanation it would be necessary to cease, : for a moment, the infernal din that is being made to frighten voters with bogy men of uncouth designs, and it is no part of the Bryan policy to let up on that din until the votes are all ...

EXPANDED AMERICA. No. 6. The Purchase of Alaska and the Annex - r ation of Hawaii, Tntuila . .:■ and Guam." Alaska belonged to Russia by right of discovery and occupation. Our navi gators had made discoveries up that way, and there was some question as to whero our claims ended and Russia's began, which was settled by the treaty of. 1524, fixing the southern limit of Russian America at 64 deg. 40 coin. Alaska was not regarded as good for much of anything save furs' and fishes, but the treaty with Russia did not ac cord as good fishing privileges to Ameri can fishermen as the Pacific coast states thought their interests demanded, and petitions ' went to Congress from the northwest to have a more liberal treaty madu with Russia. In making over tures to Russia for an extension of fish ing privileges to the Alaskan banks it was found that the whole of Alaska might readily be bought, and it -was bought March 29, 1867. for $7,250,000.
