The question has been preulpltateil up- on the country by the operation of what is generally known us the Illand hill, pasted by Congress on February I think Ihfil time hns demonstrated thnt thai net of Congri-Bi is n deoidedly pVr- nicioua measure, and if not speedily re- pealed or greatly modllicd inns ns il his already done, work i jury lo .tvery Interest In ihis eounlrr. are fnnlts in thai ncl'! lire manifold. The llr.il Is thai the hill directs ami reqnires Iho Secretaryof Ihe.

The next fault Is that this purchase and coinage uf not less Ihnil :innnally. never lo end. Imagine UK) years of coin- nee nnd the United Slates carrying a a'llvlr coinage of SJ.lOO.OUO.uXMV The next faull In ihe hill is, ihnt Ihe Imlllon ia to he purchased thai Is, Ihe Ulilled States is not a voluntary but a forced constantly on the mnrket for silppSv, with no option us lo Ihe amount she must pay, bin miisl pur- chase al the ninrkul price ihereul. Ihe next greal fulill in the hill is, lhat its friends, seeming to Ihe fac.1 that these standard dollars were not de- manded by Ihe people of Ihe United Btatea as a circulating inedl..... of values, afler making Ihe B leKul lender at their nomlimi value for all debis slid ducf, public ana private, proceed lo provide for tin: of these standard dollars in Ihe Treasury oftho United Stales, and lhat a silver corlilicule Bhall elrctilnlc us a circulating medliuu, uf values iiiBtead of slored dollnrs.

In tho bill Ibis la done by Indirection, but it is thore all the aame.

No, sir, when H sil- ver or gold dollar leaves our minis and goes Into oirenlatlon, it confronts the i inexorable laws of trade nnd eonimereo of the world, and these laws govern its I olrculallon.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
