Adveruo Ualance of Hmmo Bill in City Miscellany WASHINGTON CITY April Windom baa addressed a letter to a western correspondent in answer to comments and Inquiries about the present status of the sil ver question The secretary discussing tUo pending mcnsuro before congress and tlis silver question generally says The bill recommended by tha treasury was mainly for two purposes First to meet the ilemand for an increase of circulation and fccondly to enhance the value oC silver by providing for it additional and safe usa as money If approved by congress it will in my judgment accomplish both of thtsse ob jects and at tho same time afford a fair and Just basis for harmony of action on the ail fer question Some Tilings It Will Accomplish uTo the silver interest it offers every sub itautial benefit that can bo granted without peril to our financial system and far greater advantages than can ix found in free coin To those who demand more money it offers an annual increase of from 850000 DOO to SUOUOUOOO To those who insist upon i sound currency it gives the amplest guar antees against degradation of the American dollar But to Vhoso who would inflate the Kurrency by injecting into it a large rjt money without adequate against depreciation it offers no comfort whatever to the Silver Men In reply to your friendly criticisms let too invito your attention to the extraordi nary which are offered to tha silver sentiment of the country proponed to absorb all tho silver produced tlit mines an I reduction works of th Unite1 States thereby withdrawing Ttoin tijorly onehalf of the entire silver product of tile world and thus en hancing tlio viluo oL tho wholo But Still They Ask for Move coutent with this conces sion which is siuely without a parallel as to any product tho senate committee insists that tho government shall bo com pelled to purchase UOOOU worth of silver in each mouth nmUing a year which with the amount needed for the arts and for our trade with China will exceed oar own production by about per annum How is this excess to be ob tained f Only by purchasing from abroad In he event of au unfavorable balance of trade whan our gold will ba most needed at home wo shall be compelled lo export 810 000000 of gold which we will then sorely need to pay for oif silver which wo will not need at all This compulsory purchase of so grant an amount will make the treasury tho largost operator in tha most gigantic corner ever organized Practically Free Coloagc bill reported by tho house committee provides that tho notes issued for silver bullion shall lie redeemed in staud silver dollars if demanded by thu holder This will give to the owners of silver bulliou the power to convert every ounce produced in this country into standard silver dollars at their own will und pleasure Truo there is not tho slightest danger that this power will bei exorcised because no sane man will prefer to convert treasury notes which the government is bound to redeem in gold or Its equivalent into standard silver dollars unless ho may want a limited number oi them for some specific purpose Tho Secretary Wants to Know Under this bill tho government will not force silver dollars into circulation but it will permit any one to have coined as many of them as ho can pay for with treasury notes What more can tho advocates of silver coinage demand Surely nothing un less they desire to compal tho treasury to force standard dollars into our circulation for the solo purpose of depreciating and de grading it Is it not enough that we take nearly onehalf of the worlds silver prod uct and lock it up in order to increase tha value of tbo other half that we join tho sil rer producers in the most gigantic corner aver organized uud that wu give to the owners of silver bullion the right and the power to convert every ounce of our prod uct into standard silver dollars if they ohooso to do so n Vrivilego Is Asfccil For For all of these unparalleled concessions to the silver interests what is demaudod iu Only the privilege of protecting the honor and credit of tho nation by a grant of power to vedeem its notes either in gold or in its equivalent of silver bulliou All of the bills on this subject contemplate a policy to extend over au indefinite period nud which will result in tho issuj of a very large volume of treasury notes If they ba made redeemable in lawful money they must bo paid in the best lawful money if demanded La accordance with the high rule of honor which this government has thus far main tained and by which it has established a credit the prida and boast of our people Peril To He Guarded Against If the balance of trade shall turn against us or it distrust shall ariso as to our ability to pay in gold us it surely will under such a provision of law or if for any other reason wo shall be unable to redeem in gold when demanded tho government will be compulled to discriminate against silver dollars when gold will at oura command a premium and this nation wiill step down from its present proud position and take its place on tho financial basis of China India and South America lit is to save us from this danger that I have insisted so strenu ously on tho provision to redeem in gold or its equivalent in silver bullion Two Ways to Do tile Business I know of but two siays by which the pro posed issue of treasury notes can be an chored to t he recognized values of the com mercial worlld One Si the bulliou redemp tion feature provided in the treasury bill and the other is authority to sell bonds in order to provide a reserve fund to meet the oonstantly increasing volume of proposed treasury notos The hitter I balieve to be both unnecessary and unjustifiable The former I believe to be entirely practicable and safe Even with this safeguard against destruction to the fair1 fabric of our na tional credit the extraordinary concessions above mentioned approach as near to thi dangerous edge of peril as prudence will dare to trend Rather than go one step further in that direction I firmly believe that it would be far batter to have no leg blation on the subject Decrease let tbe Xnrnber of WASHINGTON CUT April 31
