T'rue Bimetallism. Senator Gray is reported as say ing that President Clei eland is now and constantly has I.,ln a sincere Iimetallist. Fromn this some careless persons infer that the Pre ;ident is ready to consent to free silver coinage. It would be rash to attempt to define Mr. Cleveland's position for him, but if he has used words correctly, the declaration that he is a bimec tallist necessarily implies that he will not consent to free coinage of silver by the United States alone, whether on the present ratio or on any other. The inmetallist i one ,who strives to s(ecure the use of both metals together as money, at pmne qstablished ratio of value. For the . nited States alone to do this is utterly impossible, and the at tempt could only result in driving one metal orf'te other out of cir culation as money. If silver were freely coined one of two things would haplnm: either silver would remain below par in gold, or it would rise to or above par in gold. If it should remain below t...

The Liar of San Antonio. In answecring the attack made by a Texas editor in the San An tonio Express, upon the State of Louisiana, the COMMERCIAL takes' for its answer the following from the N. O. States: There appeared in the San An touio Express a few days ago an attack on the people and the State of Louisiana, which contained statements so utterly false and ab surd that it is difficult to deal with it seriously, but as the falsehoods may go abroad and do Louisiana great injury it is the duty of the press of the State to denounce the paper that originated them. The Express declares that the recent hurricane which swept the gulf coast of this State and destroyed over a thousand lives was the re suit of a curse of heaven, because it is the land of disease and death; the home of alligators, reptiles' and pests which compel trains crossing the State to keep their doors and windows closed in or der to afford protection to the passengers; that the yellow fever constantly lurks in the ma...

"The mints at New Orleans and San Francisco can, if worked to the full extent of the capacity of the force now at those places, coin about two million silver dollars a month," said an official of the Treasury Department to-day, when questioned concerning the amount of silver that can be coin ed by the government when the work of coining the bullion pur chased under the Sherman law is iput into practical operation.
