Our Smallest Coin. The smallest of American coins, the ubiquitous cent, alike incapa l?le individually of exciting the treed of the counterfeiter, or stimu luting the covetonshess of the ordi nary citizen, has,despite itsxlespis ed paltryness, swelled in the aggre? gate to enormous proportions.

In other words, there nave been circulatated in the United States more than six million dollars' worth of this coin. The cent has not always been what it is to-day. While the total has been growing to such enormous proportions, the single coin has, in d'deneo to public convenience, been getting smaller and smaller.

The proceedings of the Republi? can State Convention at the city of R ehmoml, reported elsewhere, dein* onstrated beyond a doubt that Mahone was master of the situation. Croner's mild dissent to the meth? ods of the Boss, Hubbard's appeal to the convention to show to the Democrats that they were not lin? ger the dictatorship of Mahone, Kiddleberger's ravings under the fetters which bound him to his master, availed nothing. Mahone planned and through his represen? tatives dictated the course of pro it t dings in convention, and the members like so many puppets danced in response to his wishes. Most of them submitted at the more nod of the boss, cajoleiy and flattery was necessary to control others; and nothing short of a kiss by little Hilly could soothe the tur? bulent spirit of "the game cock of the Valley" but all were taught in S"ine way to suc...
