believes that1 if the samo pass tho Senate and they will enable him to accomplish much in this direction ENS iUIMSELF Secretary a reporter of tho Associated Press to make a copy of the following which is taken from a letter addressed byhim to n Western cor respondent In answer to comments and in quiries upon thoproserit status of the sliver question The bill theTreasury was formed mainly for two purposes First to moot for an increased circulation and second to enhance tho value of silverby providing for it w ad ditional and safo use for money Ii ap proved by Congress ih will Jnmy judg ment accomplish both these objects and at the samo time afford a fair and just basis for harmony ofaction on the silver ques tion To the si Ivor Interestsit affords every substantial benefit that canbe granted without peril to our financial system and far greater advantages than found In free coinage ToUiose whodomand more money it ollcrs an annual Increase of from fifty to sixty milJIons To thoso who insist upon sound currency it givesthe amplest guarantee against tho degradation of tho American dollar But to those who would inflate tho currency byinjectlng into largo volume of money without safeguards against depreciation it offers no com fort whatever arid right here is formed tho secret of much of to some of its redemption features In reply to your friendly criticisms let me Invite your attention to the extra ordinary concessions which are to the of the country is proposed to absorball tbe silver produced by the mines and reduced works of tiie United States thereby withdrawing from the market nearly onet half of the entire silver prodifct the world and thus greatly the value of the whole content1 this conces sion which is surely without parallel as to any other product the Senate coinmittee insists that the Government bo compelled to purchase worth of silver each montih making a year which with the amount needed for the arts and trade with China will exoocd ourown production by about per annum How is this excess to bo obtained by purchaso from abroad In tho event of an unfavorable balance of gold will be most needed at home wo will bo compelled to ex port oC gold which wo will then sorely need to pay for in sli ver which wo will not need at This compulsory purchase of sogreat an amount make of the Troasuryjthe largest1 opera tor In tho most gigantic corner over or ganized billreported by tho House committee provides that tho notes issued for silver bullion be standard sil ver if demanded by tho holder This will give tlie owners of silver bullion power to convert every ounce produced in this country into standard silver dollars at thoir own will and pleasure It is true that thoro is not the slightest danger that this power will bo exorcised because no sane man will prefer to convert Treasury notes which tho Government is bound to redeem iu its equivalent into standard sil ver dollars unless he a limited number of them for somespecific purpose Under this bill tho Government will not force silver dollars circulation and willpermit any ono to have coinedas can pay for with treasury What more can tho advocates of silver coinagedemand Surely nothing unlesstheydesireto compel the Treasury to force standard dollars into our circulation for the sple purpose of depreci ating and degrading It is not enough that wo take nearly one half of tho worlds sllvor iproduot and lock it up in order to increase the value of the other half join the silver producers in tho most gigantic ever organ and that we give to tho owners of silver bullion the right and power to convert every ounce of our production into standard silver dollars if they lor all of these un the silver interests demanded in Only the privilege of protecting the honor and credit of tho Nation by a grant of power to redeem Its notes either in gold or its equivalent of silver bullion All bills on this subject contemplate a policy to extend over an indefinite period and which will result in the issue of a very largo volume of Treasury notes If they bo made money they must bo paid in lawful money if demanded in accordance with the high rule of honor which this Government far maintained and by which it has estab lished its credit the pride and boast of our people If thebalance of trade turns against us or if distrust arises as to our ability to payin gold as it surely will under such s a law or if for any other reason unable to redeem iu gold when demanded Government will bo compelled discriminate against silver dollars when com premium nation will step down from proud position and takeIts place on basis of China India and It is to1 savo nsfrom this danger that I have insisted so strenuouslyfor provision to redeem in gold or its equivalent in silver bullion T know of two ways which the proposed Treasury notes chorcd to recpgnixed clal world bullion feature the Treasury bill and tho other is authority to sell order to provide a reserve tlie con
