There never has Bren and there never can be in any country at any time a bimetallic Standard and Tho attempt to create a double Standard has never produced anything better than an alternating Standard with Tho inevitable consequences of injustice with reference to past contracts and uncertainty with reference to future contracts.

If there was any actual relation Between the Quantity of Money in circulation and National Prosperity we would now be on a flood tide. For More than a Twelvemonth now the amount of Money in circulation in the United states has been steadily on the increase. July i i Hal it about the time Tho Chicago platform was in the process of incubation and Tho Mouth of the Popo crat was full of demands for More of the circulating medium the rota1 Vioney in circulation in the United a ates was $1,-509, 72a, 200, making $21. I a per capita on an estimated population of 71,390,-000. Nov. I 1896, on the eve of the election. When the people of the i tile d states were to give their verdict against a debased and depreciated currency the Money in circulation was $1,627,055,-614, making $22.63 per capita on an estimated population of 71,902,000. March i 1897, on the eve of Mckinley a inauguration the total Money in circulation in the United states had risen to the unprecedented sum of $1,-675,604,953, making $23.14 per capita on an estimated population of 72,418,-000. To fully appreciate this increase of the Money in circulation in Tho United states it is Only necessary to say that in the last ten Mouths it amounted to $165,969,753, or More than $2 per capita of the entire population. While the absolute circulation has passed All previous High water Marks the per capita circulation is still $1.30 below that of ia2, just before the panic. But the per capita is now higher than it was in 1890 or any year in the history of the Republic prior to that. Then Why Rue the times not As Good As they were along in the late eighties simply because Good times depend on Public Confidence and Industrial activity and not on the amount of Money in circulation. This is simply the teaching of Tho old proverb that a nimble sixpence is better than a slow Chicago times Herald. One Way to get kid of the Silver question. Stevens several Days last week. M. P.

The Gold Standard does not n strict us to the use of Gold. Our country like every other Gold Standard country uses vast amounts of Silver concurrently with Gold. There is no shortage of Gold. Its production is steadily increasing. When Confidence prevails there is no Luck of Gold for currency or any other purposes. The wage earner s interest. Appreciation of the Dollar in which wages Are paid and consequent lower prices Are constantly and certainly to the advantage of the wage earner. Depreciation of the Dollar and consequent higher prices Are always and certainly to his damage. A lawyer in Butler mo., has baptized his twin sons Gold and Silva. The original de monetization of Silver was effected in Jefferson s order. By we at All Tim to cheap and repudiation of Ivl get it believed that coinage ratio should stick clone to the Market Katie favored pm of both Metal but showed a moderate preference for Gold could not have stood on the Chicago platform. Thomas Jefferson was a Patriot and statesman of the highest order. If in proper for All True do rats to celebrate his birthday april 13, and to commemorate his Many t Loeb it qualities but Why should those1vho voted in 1896 to i i Sudiah debts and m cheapen our Dollar by attempting to fix an artificial ratio Between Gold and Silver widely Cliff rent from the Mark t ratio in r to it a Honor or Dishonour Jeff it twin s lame i til re anything in his writings or Bis conduct to indicate that he would have been a cheap Money and repudiation i to rat in 1783 or. A of arson wrote the pro tort Ion i it won the value of Gold and ill i is a run anole or mein Alt --�?��?�the7 a a just principles will Lead us to disregard Legal proportions altogether to inquire into the Market Price of Glt l l in the several countries Vav i Whit ii we shall principally is needed in Commerce Aud to take an average Felt m than. Does this sound like the Silver Plank of the Chicago platform in a letter to or. Hamilton in february 1792, or. Jefferson expressed his opposition to cheapening the Dollar or reducing Tho monetary unit he said of the Dollar i very much doubt a right now to change the value and especially to Lessen it. It would cad to so easy a Mode of laying off their debts a a should it be thought however that Congress May Milieu the value of tit Dollar i should be for adopting for our unit instead of the Dollar either one ounce of pure Silver or one ounce of Standard Silver so As to keep the unit of Money a part of the system of measures weights and coins. The original Quot de monetization of Silver was effected by the following order from Thomas Jefferson department or state Mays 1406. Sir in consequence of a representation from the directors of the Bank of the United that considerable purchases have been made of dollars coined at the mint for the pure Oak of exporting them and As it is probable further purchases and exportation will be made the in sub it Thomas Jefferson ill its that All Silver to 1� coined at Tho mint shall h of Small Den a nations so to at the value of Tho largest pie. Re. La not ex.-. I half a Dollar. James Madison Robert Patterson. ®sq., dire Tor it of Tho mint. Except 1,000 pieces no More Silver dollars were coined till after Andrew j a Sou ii fir i from Tho presidency. Or is Clear from Jefferson s writings that ii favored the use of in re me ails but Only it their natural ratio in the worlds markets. He seems to Hugo had an instinctive fear that people who wished an Quot easy Modo of paying off their debts would attempt to fix our coinage system Independent of the worlds markets his policy at All times was to stick close to the natural ratio. His desire to ascertain the Market ratio Between Gold and Silver and adopt that As the Legal ratio is shown again in his supplemental notes works edition of 1853, volume i Page 170, written in 1783 or 1784, when he suggests that the committee of the states be instructed to appoint also proper i sons to tr>qu1ro what Are Tho proportions Between the values of Fine Gold and flu Silver at the markets of tile several countries with which we Are or May probably ins Conni cited in Commerce and what would be a proper proportion Here having regard to the average of their values at those markets and to other circumstances and to report the same to the committee by them to be Laid before Congress. Jefferson framed Anguria passed by the Virginia Assembly a Law by which the value of the paper Money of America was settled Quot in Sterling Money or the lawful Money of if Jefferson had been compelled to choose Between the two metals he would undoubtedly have taken Gold. La his a a notes he observed that the High Price which Spain paid for Gold had a tendency to draw away Gold Aud to leave us Only Silver. He thought therefore that a we might with safety lean to a proportion somewhat above Par for Gold a _ free Silver democrats Are not Jefferson democrats. They should either abandon their false doctrines or worship at another shrine. Good Money i Good any lure. While a government can within its territory define that which shall constitute a Legal tender in satisfaction of contracts past and future it cannot by legislation fix Tho purchasing value Clits Money for Money is a commodity and its value is determined in the markets of Tho world und t the Laws of trail., and Tho Laws of Trade like the Laws of nature Are stronger and More far reaching than any constitutions or statutes. The Best Money is the Money of greatest Pun Basing Power and that Money has the maximum of purchasing Power which is exchangeable at Par not Only in the county from whose mint it is issued but also in the markets of the world. Fem follows Japan. P. Re is Tho lat St addition to the list of countries planning to get on to a solid Gold basis. If Silver keeps up its present rate of Progress there will be nothing left for Gold to conquer in Bah. Of course the need for Silver legislation will then be greater than Ever Aud the Gil Veritas must work accordingly. They will have the herculean task of converting the whole world Back to Silver. Our own experience. In this country since 1865 the wage earner has received his pay in dollars which have on the whole steadily appreciated in value so far As general commodities Are concerned so that Tho purchasing Power of his wages has nearly doubled while interest on capital has steadily fallen and now averages scarcely half what it was
