2ii. Objection. ��� England should
continue independent of other nations
in her money system and is strong
enough to do so.
Answer.-She is not independent in
money matters, nor is her financial
position so strong us is commonly
The prices of nil goods, for instance,
in this country are dependent on tlie
supply of gold money and this is
largely controlled by the United States
and by Continental Governments,
which can create an increased scarcity
of gold at will. The President of the
United States, for example, has legal
power to issue a gold loan at any time,
and he may do so, with tho result perhaps of ruinous panic in this country
and a run upon the banks. Iu such a
crisis, as Mr. Goschen says, "Bank
notes me of no sufficient avail. What
yon want is cash ���gold which will pay
your liabilities iu foreign countries;
and the printing press at a moment of
this kind is a dancer, not a resource."
Where then is tlie gold to bo had?
Certainly nut in England. Her banks
keep nearly all their gold at the Batik
of England a total of less than .'!U
millions ; so inadequate in the face uf
liabilities payable on demand to the
amount of 000 millions, that the greatest anxiety is now felt, and proposals
are actually on foot for keeping reserves
independent of the Bank of England.
That bank stands, as regards coin,
only fifth among European banks,
having uo more than luoul 2(i million's

G8 millions of
millions ot silver, :,"r to mention its
lower and steadier rale for loans.
People uiny say our credit will pull us
through, as it has done in past lime.
In past time, up to 18711, v,o should
remember the Continent bad bimetallism, giving us tbo practical right of
getting either silver or gold at short
notice. We have no such right now,
and our credit will not create gold,
which does not exist in large available
forgot the rate ot   'ntoros', which iu
times of pressure is ruinous.
Iu another way the delusion that
England's money system is independent of other nations' action may before
?-i.no per annum in j long be exposed, if the United States,
| in company with certain other nations,
adopt a silver standard with free coinage of that metal, securing thereby a
stoutly basis ot exchange with one
another and partially shutting out
gold money countries from their commerce, As an immediate consequence
Canada would have to do the same
thing, because of their dose commercial contact with the United States,
whose coinage she at present uses,
though sovereigns arc legal tender,
together with gold dollars of the
Our loss would be enormous, for a
great part of our exports already go to
silver-using countries.
It is thus evident that every nation
is dependent on the laws made by
other nations in regard to money.
This important fact, however, has not
been generally understood till quite
lately, and so its effect ou international
politics is only beginning to attract
attention. It is easy to see that, if
the policy of England in refusing to
join a bimetallic union of nations be
regarded by them us sellish and injurious, they may act accordingly towards
her, and opportunities for effective unfriendliness multiply every year both
in peace and war. if, for instance,
the United States assume control of
the projected Nicaragua ''anal, very
serious disputes may arise.
27. Objection.���There are remedies
better than bimetallism for present
Answer. ���In considering a remedy,
we must first ask whether it will meet
all or any of our present difficulties,
which are chiefly (1) artificially depressed prices, (2) increased burthen of
debts and fixed charges, (il) uncertainty as to the future course of prices and
(4) the dislocation ot money exchanges
between countries using gold and those
using silver. It has been proposed to
do on a small scale what the United
States are doing, that is to coin more
silver to a limited extent. Such devices stay the fall of prices a little,
but tho uncertainty both of prices and
of exchange with other countries continues. The United States may cease
to coin silver and, if so, they may require gold in addition to the large
supply of their own mines. We shall
certainly get no more gold from that
quarter unless silver is coined there in
place of gold. The result will be an
increased struggle for gold in Europe
with n further fall of prices for all
goods; iu fact, an aggravation of the
depression which now prevails.
Since tho first proof sheets of this
pamphlet were sent to press England
u Bank ot France has has decided to stop the free coinage of

them, "by the skin of their teeth."
from a catastrophe which might have
transferred  "tlio   business  of    this
tries, nnd these evils will come in an
aggravated degree, so far as India joins
in the scramble for gold. The Indian
Government desired a union of nations
for bimetallism but England refused,
so the gold standard was chosen for
India as the least injurious alternative.
in relation to bimetallism. A Royal
Commission of twelve eminent persons
reported unanimously, in 1888, that it
was possible to maintain a fixed value
between gold uud silver through bimetallism, though six of them considered the system needles-;, objectionable
or premature, unu two of the six
doubted whether the fixity between
gold and silver would be permanent.
One of tne six, Mr, Leonard Courtney,
has quite lately withdrawn his objections and now advocates bimetallism.
The cause has been eagerly taken up
by Lancashire, the ngrioiiitural classes
and the general body of wage earners,
under the guidance ot distinguished
men, including members of every political party and nx-governors of the
Bank of England. It is supported
also by the University profossors ot
political economy, so that final success
is assured, notwithstanding occasional
obstructions through the supposed
necessities ot party politics ; for instance a large number of bimetallists
in the House of Commons, on the 28th
February last, felt themselves obliged
for tlie moment to withhold support
from a resolution favouring a reassembly of the Brussels Monetary Conference, Australia also has taken up the
'.ittise of bimetallism and Canada will
loubtless soon follow.
20. The chief active opponents of
bimetallism are the money-lending
classes, including many bankers. They
lose in the end by tlie ruin of manufactures, labour and commerce, but are
not yet themselves in distress, and
tliere are gains to be made in the
present struggle by clever financiers at
the public expense. Mr. Goschen has
done good service by appealing to the
self-interest of these classes, and warning them of great national disaster,
unless our monetary system be reformed, and he has mentioned bimetallism
as one means ot effectual reform.
The Loudon Press is opposed to bimetallism, as might have been expected. Pew journalists know much of
tho question, and all of them are
largely dependent on the money-lending classes and bankers for information
about such matters.
30. The reader who wishes to pursue
tho subject further, should procure Sir
Guilford Molesworth's excellent essay,
also a pamphlet by Archbishop Walsh
on "The Currency Question and the
Irish Land Question," and Mr. Robert
Barclay's book on "The Silver Question and the Gold Question." The
proceedings of tho Currency Commission of 188G haw been conveniently
summarised by Mr. George Howell,
M.P., and there are many valuable
papers on the question by Mr. Henry
Hacks Gibbs, formerly Governor of the
Bank of England, by Professor Fox-
well, of Cambridge, aud Professor
Nicholson, of Edinburgh. A great
deal ot literature is to be found at the
flees of the Bimetallic League, 27
Grenl -Gconrge Street, London, and in
Manchester, The " Journal of the So-
oiety or Arts for February, 18!)-),
contain:' an oxtrpmely valuable paper
by Mr. J. Barr Robertson, whose experience in different countries should
carry great weight. Most of the bimetallic literature is published- by
Messrs, Effingham Wilson & Co., Royal Exchange, London.
31. Tho case against bimetallism
consists mainly of the objections which
1 have already discussed, but monc-
metallists seldom defend their objections by argument. Their silence bus
perhaps been explained by Mr. Goschen
Chuncellcr of the Exchequer, who said
in a reply to a deputation (May 30th,
1880):���"I am awiirethat most of the
monometallists bold their views so
strongly that many of them, like the
most orthodox religious people, are
unable to give an account of their
Such arguments ns the monemctal-
lists have, are to be found in Mr. Geo,
Howell's abstract of the Currency
Commission's Report, and in a collec-
work. He propounds the strange ot Sir George Dibbs' policy in allowing
theory that the quantity of money in : tho first section of the Australian and
use does not influence prices, but that British Columbia cable to fall into the
prices influence the quantity. This hands of tne French government. Tho
view, so far as I know, is contradicted '��� Imperial government is condemned for

How Gold  la Minted.
The 8110,000,000 worth of gold
mined annually Is not nearly enough
to moot tho world's requirements. The
yearly wastage of this metal is onor-
motts. Various kinds of gilding con-
sumo great amounts of it. It is
reckoned that in Great Britain alono
25,000 ounces are used every year for
making gold leaf, while not less than
20,000 ounces more are employed in tlie
same longth of time manufacturing
gilt buttons. The finest buttons of
this description, says tho Boston
Transcript, are produced by applying
the gold in the shape of fine dust
mixed into a paste with quicksilver.
The mercury causes tlie gold to adhere
to tho base metal, after which it is
evaporated by heat, leaving tlie gold
on the surface. Large quantities of
pure gold are utilized tor the plating of
other metals and for ornamental pottery, but by far the greatest waste of
gold is incidental to its use of jewelry,
which consumes more than three times
as much of the metal as is coined.
Not less than $30,000,000 of gold is
devoted every year to making articles
of ornament. Nearly all of this is
eventually lost, not more than one-
fortieth of it ever returning to the
hands of refiners or manufacturers.
With gold coins the loss by abrasion
is considerable. To avoid this natives
in India wrap each coin singly in

Married in Fun.
Newport News, Va., Oct. 19. ��� Miss
Elizabeth Clnrke, who was selected to
represent Virginia at the Confederate
reunion at Birmingham, Ala., has unwittingly become tho wifo of Dr. Taylor, who resides on Hampton Roads, a
mile below this city.
On Tuesday evening last Miss Clarke
attended a social gathering nt tho Taylor cottage. Among the guests was a
justice of the peace named Haskins,
who was recently authorized to perform
tho marriage ceremony,. During the
evening the conversation turned upon
the new duties of Justice Haskins,
and some one suggested that he try
his hand in tying the nuptial knot.
Miss Clarke and Dr. Taylor agree 1
to plav the parts of bride and bridegroom, and Justice Haskins, after ask-
tho usual questions, which wore properly answered, pronounced the couple
man and wife.
The affair wns looked on as a mere
incident of the evening's entertainment
until to-day, when it was learned that
it was in all lospects a perfectly valid
marriage under the laws of Virginia.
The situation is further complicated
by the fact, as alleged, that Miss
Clarke is engaged to be married to
another, and that the affair will have
to bo postponed until after she can be
divorced from Dr. Taylor.

���wounded on October 15, while recou-
noitering in the   vicinity of  a kraal,
southwest of  the Iiidiunns  mountain.
He was shot  hy n   Motabele  who was
concealed behind a rock.      Fearful of
thi puiiishmenl they know tie' llritish
would inflicl upon them foi tho shoot- |
ing, all the natives in the vicinity fled i
into a more inaccessible country. They I
left precipitately, abandoning 550 head
of cattle.     Siiuitly after Capt. Campbell's leg wns amputated iiu died from
the shock.

of the Metabeles were killed and 25
head of their entile captured., The
Metabeles were reinforced and Col.
Brabant was forced to retire. The
Metabeles pursued tlie Beohuanns for a
short distance and then, evidently
fearing Col. Brabant was attempting
to draw them into tho open country,
they abandoned the chase and retired
to the hills.

The United States cities do a great
deal of blowing about their great undertakings and wonderful accomplishments, hut occasionally one hears of
something being done in "slow old
England" that illustrates what dogged
British persistence can do. The city
of Manchester, for example has been
currying through some little matters
that an American metropolis might, not
he ashamed to match. One of these is
toe construction of the great ship canal that makes her independent of Liverpool, and gives vessels direct access
to her docks. The cost of this job is
about $.'10,000,000, borne liy Manchester and the other cities on the route.
At the same timo with this, which
might have been supposed to be enough
to occupy one city's tiuieaud resources,
Manchester has been providing herself
with a new watei supply. Sbo purchased Tlilrluioie. one of tho Cumberland lakes, with the hills which form

Rio Janeiro, Oct. 24. -Fre.lcrico
Guilhcriue de Lorena has been proclaimed Provisional President of Brazil
by Admiral Mello iu command of the
insurgent fleet. Lorena is the captain
of one of the rebel war ships, aud the
Provisional Government of which he
is uow declared President was established some days ago, us was cabled
at tlie time, at Desterro, which is the
capital of tliestmeof Santa Cuthariua.
The bombardment of Rio, the capital,
has been suspended, O.ie reason given
iu Rio for this action is that Admiral
Mello is waiting the arrival of the ship
Cuidad do Porto, wll.cli set out from
this port recently louded with provisions, but especially ammunition for
Mello. She has not reached Rio harbor yet, aud cousei-ueutly it is surmised that thu rebel gunners have run
out of gunpowder aud projectiles, and
do not think it wise to exhaust what
they have left, lest before the arrival
of the Ciu.lad with fresh supplies some
ol Peixoto's ships, though of inferior
calibre, might engage the rebel squadron, and after obliging them to exhaust
their ammunition iu repulsing the
attack, overpower them by mere force
of numbers.
