THIN. In the interesting Interview with Sena tor Jones, chairman *f th Democratic Natloiuil Committee, published in our dis patches yesterday, he it* quoted a# say ing. “The silver question may solve - •* if. Should the amount of gold produced be ample to maintain a sutTh lent volume of metallic money and lieuro the stability of prices, the sliver question will be sub ordinated, but Should I lie supply fail short of the demand- of trad** the silver queetion w .11 be made prominent." Assuming that what Senator Jonas known about sliver I# valuable. It Is bard ly probable that the sliver question wlil become prominent within the next quar ter of a century. The output of gold |s IncreaMng annually, und it would have been much larger this year if it had not been for the war In South Africa. It ha been pretty' satisfactorily ascertained that the mines with which the world Is now Stqusiinted will yield all the gold that will be needed for many year# to do w hat Sen ator Jones say# go id must do to. keep •he silver question in tin* background In the campaign of peatedly by those who were apparently mst acquainted with the silver question, that that question would settle Hself 1; it were 1* i alone. The bullion value of a silver dollar was then only about 41 cents Now it Is ronnkWabJy more than that, pnd It will Increase In proportion as tin output of goal increase?*—that Is, unlev there should be a very great Increase in the ouptit of sliver. What sent the trillion value of silver down was the extraordi nary Increase in the output of that metal It is doubtful, however, if there will ever again h<4 a serious attempt In thi.-* country to make the c inage of silver five. The vast majority of |H-opl*' are con\lnced H is an im|on#ihiliiy to have a double standard Either gold or sliver must be th© stumtard. 'J*be people have decide*! in favor of gold The time may rome in tn • near future when the bullion value of a silver dollar will t>e greater than a dollar In gold, but if that should happen there would be no great desire to depose gold from the position It occupies i the mon etary' standard The business of the world demand# a stable standard, and gold ;n --swer# that demand better than silver A novel system of protection n.rains! th© iHilionlc piague had l©en devised at New Orleans. One of th© Ihrorles with respect to tn© spread of the pUigua that has many adherents is that germs are car ried into healthy ports ly rats from in fected shi|*s It Is against ship rats, there fore that the new regulation at New Or leans Is directed. At night nil vessels from infected or suspected port# must anchor not less than 100 feel from the wrhorf. a distance that o rat is to be unable to swim In daylight the vessel may b© brought r.ot nearer than forty-Uve feet from the wharf. All haw sera between stup and wharf must be pro vided with metal discs and funnels to pre vent th© pas.- ig© of rope-walking rats. While unloading is going on. there must be a guard armed with shotguns to sec that no living rat conies ashore with the cargo.
