The end of 1902 has closed a chap-

readers of the State Capital a pleas-

widespread character. It may he class-

This year of 1901 Is now a reality. It
Is young. It only began last night. Its
record la white and uninterllned. May
it be the best year you have ever seen,
and the worst one you have yet to see.

He made it clear enough that, in the
event of the enactment of a law per-
mitting a demand for gold to be pre-
dicated on any form of t he ,*)vern
ment'i money, no more gold would be
needed than now for domestic com-

no more for speculation. And it Is just
