MEXICO’S TRUMP CARD.
It looks as if the conspiracy to'force
Mexico to a gold basis by depreda-
ting her money has had the opposite
effect cm the Mexican government
than was Intended by the conspirators
in this country. Instead of abandon-
ing silver, Mexico protects herself
against.the low price of her silver
dollar by saddling the price of for-
eign exchange on her foreign Imports.
Tills was a curd American protected
Industries never dreamed of being
played when they began war on Mex-
ico’s money. And the plan to make
American goods pay the rate of ex-
change fixed by Wall street will con-
vince our gold standard importers

ers as well as Mexico,
It is reasonable to suppose that the
consumer^ of American goods In Mex-
ico will lie willing to substitute home
products for Imports when they find
that they must pay the exchange pic

wilt he a greatly decreased demand In
Mexico for the product of our manu-
factories, ft really looks ns If Mr.
Diaz holds the whip hand In thin little
General Manager Britton Davis of

ing company docs not believe the Mex-
ican government contemplates the
adoption of a gold basis in the near
future, Mr. Davig’ company owns mil-
lion* of dollar* worth of property In
Mexico, and the company’s silver
mines arc ita principal source of rev-
enue. Several of these mines are
wonderfully Idg producers, but the ore
is not very high grade, and could not
be worked advantageously If the com-
pany had to pu.v for Its labor and sup-
plies In gold, with silver at present
prices. There are hundreds of big
low grade* ore ailver mines In Mexico
that would have to shut down if the
country was placed on a gold basis,
thus still further depreciating the
value of silver.

could have evolved lust such a prod-
uct save the southern states of North
America. In him the blood of Vir-
ginia and Sonth Carolina and Georgia,
stirred and mingled by a century of
consanguineous Interchanges, found
Us fruition In Texas. His enemies
describe that fruition as rank; It was
simply gorgeous. The son of a Titan
who had helped to make the republic
of the I/jnely Star, he grew to man-
hood amid the aortal crudities, the
extravagances and excesses of the
frontiers of civilisation, a motherless
boy with no restraining Influence to
check and guide his wayward foot-
steps, and he dies, the very last of the
romanticists of the middle ages of
our American Renaissance, having
penetrated the fastnesses of the Beau
Quartler the* wide world over, without
losing his faith either In his God or
his kind, emerging thence with a vast
store of worldly wisdom, yet no tinge
of acerbity and very little cynicism.
In his youth a bumptious, overgrown
lad, ambitious and flamboyant, he had
not possessed the knowledge or train-
ing to discriminate. Harlequin wus
good enough for him, and all seasons,
summer in quest of an audience. "The
world's mine oyster—which I with
tongue will ope." Recognition at any
price. Thus the sign of the new law
firm, “Ochiltree & Father.” He was
himself'the originator of the epigram
of the three liars—’Tom Ochiltree Is
one,’ and, naming a celebrated Jour-
nalist whom for the moment he* did
not like, ’is the other two.’ He told
the moat whimsical stories at his own
expense. He became a celebrity with-
out giving n thought to the means, or
any care to the making of a career.

was « brain throbbing with ideas and
a heart as loyal, ardent and fearless
as ever beat In the bosom of an un-

On Christmas Giving.
"When I see people beginning to
prepare for Christmas," said the un-
reasonable woman. "I am always re-
minded of the small boy's definition
of that season as a time when people
give things they can’t afford to peo-
ple who don’t want them. No doubt
the small boy exaggerated, but his
words wore not without a considera-
ble measure of truth, and It would do
a good many people no harm to keep
them In mind, ft Is a pity, as Marga-
ret Deland observed In a recent arti-
cle, that the date of Christ’s birth
should be made an occasion for the
Interchange of ttasli, and It Is still
more to be regretted that this ‘trash’
should so often cost money that the
givers can ill afford. The giving of
presents at Christmas Is certainly a
beautiful custom, and one would
scarcely wish to see It go out of fash-
ion, but It might be well If people
would give fewer presents and think
a little more about them. For tt Is
