THE TEXAS MINER. OUR NEW YORK LETTER. NEW YORK, December 18, 1894. Editor TEXAS MiNER: chief topics of interest for the week have been political i rather than commercial. The Lexow legislative committee of investigation has been in active session, and each day has de- veloped some new phase of corruption and blackmail in our city government. Police Commissioner Sheehan. a brother ot the Lieutenant-Governor of the state, has been indicted by the grand jury for refusing to show his books of account to the investigating committee, and it looks as if there were lively times ahead in the affairs of our municipal government, and a large number of Tam- many office holders will have to go. Colonel William L. Strong, our mayor-elect, president of the Central National bank, has an- nounced that on January 1, when he takes his seat as mayor, he will resign his position as bank president and devote his entire time to the mayoralty. Most of the present officials hold ap- pointive offices, and th...

THE TEXAS MINER. OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. ^ . [Special Correspondence of THE TEXAS MutEH. ] WASHINGTON, D. C.. Dec. 17, 1894. THE HOUSE. Ihe House will, unless something not now expected occurs to upset the programme, pass the currency bit) this week although it is a matter of doubt whether there are as many as fifty mem- bers of the House who realh favor the p!an embraced in the bill. That may appear to be a strange statement, but it is none the !ess true, i he bill is going to be passed by the House, not because those who will vote for it have any faith in it as a reform m present currency laws, but because they as a rule are willing to accept it as an experiment, on the word of Secretary Carlisle that it will, if it ever becomes a law, prevent further issue of bonds, if it does nothing else. UNITED IN THEIR OPPOSITION. It seems a little queer that of all the letters received by the House committee on banking and currency on the subject of the currency bill, and hundreds were receiv...

G OLD, gold, gold, bright and shining and hard to hold," as Mr. Carlisle finds. England in 1817 demonetized silver, and decided that gold should be the basis upon which all mercantile transactions in England should be based, only using silver as subsidiary coin. Prior to that time all the nations of the earth, from the earliest era, had used both silver and gold as mediums of exchange at about the same ratio, at which coinage value it rule§ at this time, viz—about 15 1-2 ounces of silver be ing equal in exchangeable value to one ounce of gold.
