We're" going to have the ball-room
scene on the teniiis-c urt just in front of
the evergreens, don't you know, and
then the balcony scene m the same
place. We have to cut some of the
business between Koiueo and Juliet 1m
cause it's too long, von know, and s^me
of it's too—too passionate; we e >uldu't
do it properly, and we've decided to
leave it out. But we sketch along
through the play, and we have Friar
Laurence coming with Juliet out of his
cell into the tennis-court and meeting
Itomeo; ho that tells the story of the
marriage. You can't imagine what a
Mercutio Mr. Putney makes; lie thrown
himself into it heart aud soul, especially

the garden, on the tennis-court, and we
condense the different acts so as *o give

the tomb scene set at one side of the
tennis-court just op|>osite the street

then we have Juliet come to the door of
the tomb it's a liberty, of course; but
we couldn't arrange the light inside—
and she stabs herself ami falls on llo-

Von see, it gives a notion of the whole
action, and tells the story well. 1 think
you'll be pleased."

"Well, yes, I did," Mr. Hrandreth

Ileal Arctic Snow.
Frederick Schwatka writes of mow in
the Afrctic region as follows When the

is about the size of a large pillow, but
of course rectangular on any section.

soft plastic character of the snow is, I
think, practically unknown in the A re-
tro country, it being there of such a
firm, solid character that when a snow
block is held clear of the ground and
struck with a knife it will give forth
for some seconds a clear, metallic, musi-
cal ring, nearly as pronounced as strik-
ing a suspended bar of tempered steel.
Leaving out glass and the metals, I re-
call now nothing more resonant than
the compacted snow of the Arctic.

This principle ia well known in Mas-

tions about constitutional changes are
referred to the people for decision.
The liquor question is annually so re

full play. What is now required is to
extend this principle to the laws of the

from bad laws which the legislature
may enact. But what is to be done if
the people wish a law which the legis

This is a constitutional provision en -
abling the citizens to originate laws

If anyone wants a new law, he gets
it drafted, draws up a petition asking

ber of the voters, say one twelfth, affix
their names to it, the petition is sent
to the legislature, whe cannot alter
the proposed law, but are obliged to
send the question of its enactment to

The initiative is of equal use in
forcing the repeal of bad laws.

full operation in the New England
town meetings, where ten voters, or
sometimes one voter, can bring up any
subject for discussion and decision.

The representstvie system of govern-
ment established by the founders of
this Bepublic was a good thing in its
day, and the only form possible at the
time. Before the introduction of
steam, electricity, and a well deve-
loped post office system, it would have
been impossible to convey informn
tion to the people as quickly and
completely as Direct Legislation re
Nor was there an apparent ueed for
Direct Legislation. The legislators
had small motive for dishonesty be-
cause wealth was very evenly divided.
They were generally the smartest men
of their respective districts, and it was
plausibly argued that a small body of
smart men would make bettor laws
than the multitude.
So long as the small body of smart
men have no interests contrary to those
of the people this may be true; but
when their interests are different, his-
tory shows that they are apt to legis-
late for their own welfare, with slight
regard for the welfare of their constit-
The fathers of the republic never
imagined that the time would come
when, by the rapid growth of inven
tions the country would become studed
with corporations,w ielding the greater
part of the country 's weatlth, and hence
able to buy up legislation to any ex
tent, and run the government in their
own interests in direct violation of the
interests of the people.
To meet this new state of things has
arisen a class of professional politi-
cians, who consider their power as so
much private property to be sold for
what it is worth. Our city govern-
ments are admitted to bo the most
corrupt in the world, and our leg
islatures are constantly suspected o
taking bribes. That a law in the in-
terest of the people should be killed in
the senate, is taken as a matter of
"To such a condition has our century
of democaatic government brought us,
a condition which brings ablush to the
cheeks of those who believe in govern-
ment by the people, and a sneer to the
lips of their opponents.
But as the sea after a storm finally
comes to a level, so democratic govern-
ment is destined in the end to super-
sede all others. Democracy begins
with the first appearance of the human
race in the savage tribe, and though
often checked by temporary aggrega-
tions of the power in the hands of indi-
viduals, constantly reasserts itself,
growing stronger with every age. Let
ua have one more reform. Put the
power completely beck into the hands
of the people and we shall have an
ideal republic seemingly not capable
of further improvement.

Have n« ill) Full Legal Inultr Money?
To the hditor of The American.
Dear Siri—If we accept as law the
construction put upon the act of 1878,
which was intended to restore the legal
tender quality of the American dollar
which many of the gold standard ad-
vocates claim to be the correct one, it
may well be doubted if we have any
legal tender money which the citizen
may not by contract demonetize.
The silver dollar—the American dol-
ler—whose prototype the Spanish
milled dollar, which was the dollar of
the colonies for generations before the
revolution, and was made a legal ten-
der by Vlrginif !£52 years ago, was not
by the act of February 12, 1873, de -
prived of its legal tender quality.
It was revised out of its legal tender
power by the three eminent lawyers
delegated by congress to revise and
codify the statutes of our country, who
without any act of congress authoriz-
ing it, limited its legal tender power
to sums not above five dollars.
The people were aroused ond de-
manded its restoration.
But, under the plausible pretext that
some old land leases in New York city,
which stipulated for rent to be paid iu
Spanish milled dollars, would be mi
paired, an exception clause was cun
ningly inserted in the act which was
intended to restore the American dol-
lar to its ancient place. That excep -
tion clause was "unless other money be
specified in the contract."
This is the cover and pretext for gold
contracts, and under its dictum the
citizen may, at his own behest, by con-
tract, demonetize the nation's money.
The spirit of that clause, under the
antecedent pretext for its insertion, in -
dicates that it should apply only to
the public welfare.
Sometime it must be so prnounccd
upon by our supreme court, if indeed
the masses of our great people, in
whom all power rests, do not forestall
it by the mighty movement now pro-
gressing for delivercnce.
It is a monstrous assumption that
the citizens can invalidate any of the

the contract that it shall be paid in

This has. as we understand it, been
a point which time and again has been
decided by the courts of Great Britain
and in France, upon a principle hand-
ed down from Roman law, that a debt
payable in terms of money can be paid

It certainly is opposed to public pol-
icy to permit any citizen to thus dis-
credit the money created by law, as all

A subscriber inquires if silver certi-
ficates are issued now.
In reply we state that any citizen
having silver dollars can deposit those
dollars, and get a certificate of the de-
posit. The government simply holds
the money and issues a, receipt as
against the money. By this operation,
the volume of the currency is neither
increased or diminished.
Our friend was thinking about the
Treasury Notes issued, under the act of
1890, for the purchase of silver bullion.
These notes were new money, and con-
stituted an increase of the volume of

No silver bullion can be coined and
issued, except that which redeems and
cancels some form of paper currency
In other words no increase of money
by the use of silver can be had in any
legal way whatever.
That is the point our friend was re-
ally driving at.—Tom Watson.
The Silver Question
The following query was propound
rd to an exchange by a correspondent
and the editor invites ailver advocates
to answer it:
-Say that a silverite had the bullion
to make 1,000,000 ailver dollars, and the
government would coin it for him mak
ing juat such dollars aa we have now.

received and classed in with other de-
poaits by a bank. He could not buy a

ness block with them, for the seller
would not take a cart load of silver ex
eept at a discount. Now, 1 wanta plain
answer to the question. What could
he do with them, taking things as they
That eorrespoadent, as well as the
editor ought to attend a primer class

the effort of a "smart aleck," in which
he demonstrates his ignorance. This
paper, as has been stated many times,
is not for free silver coinage, only as a
step toward something better, but it
can answer fool questions and not half

of gross and silly mistuteinents. "Tak

Now for the answer to "What could
he do with them?" If he had no
other use for the dollars he could
divide them out among a million of his
fellow men and help them out. No
doubt the fool editor and correspon
dent would elieefully travel a few
blocks to get one of the dollars.
Or he might buy some property and
by building houses give employment to
a lot of workmen. We will give that
editor a guarantee that not a single one
of the masons, bricklayers, carpenters,
tinners, and other mechanics and the
laborers thus employed will refuse the
silver dollars, but they will be glad to

But why elaborate? Any intelligent
person can think of thousands of
things that could be done to allevate
distress anil ameliorate the condition
of man if properly and progressively
invested. Thousands of people could
be employed, business could be made
to boom and workingmen now idle and
hungry could buy and consume the
products of the farmers, thus furnish-
ing them a home market and making
all mankind comparatively happy and
prosperous; "taking things as they
are," of course.- Milwaukee Advance.
The postal department pays no divi-
dends. As a consequence it, sends no
good old yellow gold across the seas to
the roy.storing rowdies of London who
spend it in catering to their own pleas-
ures. The department has no half
starved employees no boys or girls
who ought to bo in school—working
out their lives in coining dollars for
the rich. It employs men and women
of mature years and pays them a com
paratively large wage a wage that is
not daily threatened with reductions.
You never read, either, that a post-
oflice has gone out of business or that
because it is a monopoly that the price
of stamps has been raised. The em-
ployes are practically their own em-
ployers, the government merely acting
as a nominal employer. The workers
do the work, collect and remit the
money which they pay back to them-
selves. None of it goes to capitalists,
except where the department wanton-
ly purchases capitalistic services. The
postal services only loses when it
comes in contact with capitalism in
the shape of raijway, supply, and
stage contracts.—Coming Nation.

following comparison made by John
M. Harlan, independent candidate for
mayor of Chicago; in an address the
other evening, puts tlie case in such
forceful manner that we reproduce his
remarks here: "l)o you know that the
dogs of Chicago- the common yellow
curs that run about our alleys and
shrink from carriage and street car
wheels—are a greater source of revenue
to the city of Chicago than are the
miles aud miles of street railways that
till our thoroughfares? Did'any one
ever tell you that the licenses issued
to owners of dogs bring more money
into the city treasury than all the fees
that are paid by the cable trolley
lines? They don't wear out the pave-
ments,they don't endanger human life,
tliey make no money out of the people,

city government than the street-car
magnates, who pretend to the owner-
ship of our streets.—Farmers Voice.

Piling It On.
A direct proposition to remunerate
the bond dealers for their aid in the
election of Mark IIanna's candidate is
already submitted to congress. It is
contained in a bill introduced by Rep -
resentative Walker of Massachusetts,
providing for the issue of bonds to the
amount of $750,000,000, with the pro-
ceeds of which the legal tender and
treasury notes and silver certificates
arc to be redeemed for cancelation.
Not content with this double infamy
the bill further provides for the sale of
silver dollars as bullion whenever they
cannot be kept in circulation. This is
a proposition to out Cleveland Cleve-

crushing weight to the mountain of op-
pression beneath which commerce and

While conversing with a druggist in St.
John, Kansas, tha other day. a reporters
attention was attracted by a lyra attached
to the door of the drug store. Every open-
ing of the door cauaed several ball* which
were suspended from the top of the instru-
ment to swing back and forth, striking the
wirea of tha lyre and producing a very
pleasing and musical souud. Upon exam
tnation we peroeived that the instrument
was aim ply a novel scheme to advertiae
I>r. Williams' Pink Pills. We inquired of
tha druggist if he had much sale for tha
Pink Pills, and he informed us that they
were his leading sellers. We then asked
him what his opinion was of their curative
qualitiea. He told us of several cures which
had been effected by their use, oue in par-
ticular, that of a prominent farmer's wife,
by the name of Huuiee.
The acribe became very much Interested
and determined to interview Mr. Humes in
regard to the matter. He spoke as follows:
"1 desire to state that I consider Dr. Wil-
liams' Pink Pills one of the grandest reme-
dies ever placed upon the market. My wifa
had been troubled for a long time with pa-
ralysis in one of her arms. She doctored
with aeveral physicians and tried every
medicine she oould hear of but obtained no
relief whatever, 1 spent a graft! deal of
money in an endeavor to cure her, but is
seemed like a vain effort. At last an old
gentleman who had used Dr. Williams'
I'ink Pills with great benefit, told me what
they had done for hiin. 1 purchased a box,
determined to test their merits.
"My wife began using them, and to my
surprise, as woll as her s, she commenced
improving in health wonderfully, and at
this time ia perfectly cured. 1 nave used
them since myself for catarrh and found I
obtained great relief. They are in my esti-
mation one of the best medicines manu-
factured, and 1 am willing at all timea to
recommend them to all who are ailing, for
I truthfully believe they will do all that is
promised for them."
Mr. Humes is well known throughout
Stafford County, Kansas, and his statement
can be relied apca.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a con-
densed form, all the elements necessary to
give new life and richness to the blood and
apecilic for troubles peculiar to females,such
as suppressions, irregularities and all forma
restore shattered nerves. Thev are also a
of weakness. They build up the blood, and
restore the plow of health to pale and sallow
cheeks. In men they effect a radical cure
in all cases arising from mental worry,over-
work or excesses of whatever nature. Pink
