The total Supply of Gold and Silver in the United states june 1st, 1890, is estimated to be Gold $g07,183,582�? Silver $026,273,881. Gold and Silver in circulation Gold including Gold certificates $498,838,348�?Silver, in eluding Silver certificates and notes for Silver $450,387,124. All Gold and Silver coid except Silver coins of less denomination than Oue Dollar Are Legal tender without limit coins less than Oue Dollar Are Legal tender for $10. National Bank notes ure not Legal Temler for any amount. Gold certificates and Silver certificates Are of the nature of Ware House receipts. They Are not Legal tender but Are redeemable on demand in what they Are issued for. All United state Bonds Are payable principal and interest in Coin Silver or Gold 10 to 1�?at the option of the debtor government. All other notes Aud obligations except Gold and Silver certificates Are redeemable and payable in the same Money Coin Silver or Gold at the option of the government. The government Lias issued no Gold Bonds or Gold notes to natives or foreigners. Bondholders cannot refuse to take Silver dollars in payment of their interest or principal it is full Legal tender for All such claims this applies to foreigners As Well As americans. Prior to 1873 any citizen could take Gold or Silver to the mints and have it coined into Money without charge. The citizens Gold was made into Gold Coin of any denomination authorized. The citizens Silver was coined into Standard Silver dollars each Silver Dollar weighing sixteen times As much As the Gold Dollar. This was a free coinage 10 to 1.�?� in 1873 an act was passed making the mint a Bureau of the Treasury department and creating the office of director of the mint. This Bill Dis continued the coinage of Standard Silver dollars and limited their Legal tender Power to five dollars. It also authorized the coinage of that curse of our currency the a Trade Dollar a which was made Legal tender for live dollars. Three years after the Trade Dollar was deprived of Legal Quality and soon after ceased to be coined. In 1878 Congress restored the full Legal tender Quality of the Standard Silver Dollar and authorized the Purchase of two to four millions of Silver monthly and its coinage into staud Ard Silver dollars. July 1890. Congress increased the Purchase of Silver Bullion to $1,500,000 per Inonu i to be paid for in Treasury notes but ordered the coinage of Standard Silver dollars to cease after july 1st, 1891, except As shall be necessary to provide for the redemption of the Treasury notes issued in payment for Silver Bullion. The amount of pure Silver in a Standard Silver Dollar was fixed in 1792 by the act that established the mint and has never been changed. It contains 371 grains pure Silver. From 1792 to 1873 coinage wus free for Gold and Silver. During All this period of free coinage there was never any trouble about lie parity of Silver and Gold. In 1s73 Silver woo at a Premium of 2 to 4 cents of the Dollar. The act of 1873 stopped the free coinage of Silver and continued the free coinage of Gold. The result is that Gold Lias appreciated and Silver has depreciated until the Gold in n Dollar will sell for almost twice As much As the Silver in a Dollar and the country is suffering from financial distress such As was never known before. The advocates of free Silver ask for a restoration of the Law that controlled our coinage prior to and up to 1873. When there was free coinage 1g to 1�?Silver and Gold the country prospered Aud every Silver Dollar was As Good As its Golden brother or a Little better. Or. Carlisle the present Secretary of the Treasury of the United states following the bad example of Bis Republican predecessor has persist Eutzly practice Gold payments for the Rich and Silver and paper payments for the poor. The Bonds and notes of the government Are made payable in Coin Silver or Gold 10 to 1 at the option of tie government. These claims Date Back to the times of the civil War and Are in Large part for the loan of depreciated paper two Dollare of which would not buy one Dollar of Silver. To these in Silver Coin is to them in the Money of the contract Aud to them in much better Money than the government got for them. But these Silver claims of the Rich Are paid in Gold. While the pensions of heroes with empty sleeves and wooden legs and the salaries and wages of americans in the civil military and naval service of the country Are not paid in Gold. Gold for the Rich at the expense of the poor. The bonded debt of the country has been increased $202,000,000. The burdens of taxation liar been increased $202,000,000 to buy Gold to the Coin claims of the Rich for which obligations Silver is full Legal tender.
