had eeu in favor of doubling the amount of Iver bullion purchased and in fact de rous of doing almost anything in that iroction except abandoning absolutely nd forever the bimetallic standard oney But the followers ot the new sil er gospel were not easilysatisfied They emanded the coinage of all the silver at ho expense of the government They also the treasury notes or certificates to c made a legal tender for all defotg public nd private Then they the treas ry reserve to be cut down to ten millions nd the hundred millions of gold now held or the redemption of legal tender notes to e reduced to fifty millions The Ijiirtt Straw for Morrill Finally rather than anything else they freecoinage for all the American Iver and for all that might be brought nto the United States from Mexico or any ther country The cost of coining silver ibout 2 per cent was to be borne by the overnmert and the depositors of silver ullion were to receive all the difference in aluo between bullion and standard dol ars The Ileul Creditor Class That was the feast to which the senate was invited by the distinguished senators rom Colorado and Nevada Teller and The wage earners of the United states were

than in 800 In Favor of tha Double He helitved that by wise and moderate eglslation a sufficient amount of silver might be utilized and yet a bimetallio standard be maintained He did not want o have the United States divorced from he commercial world but that was not he policy of those who had led off in the debate Their transparent design was only thinly attempted to be concealed to go by a single bound to asilvcr standard f the country was to have a single stantl vrd ho preferred that that standard should gold rather than silver He would how ever be glnd to see both maintained and with
