Legislation cannot create value but legislation can create demand and demand creates value. Legislation creates the present demand for Gold hence its greatly in j creased value. Legislation has Cut oif the demand for Silver therefore its value has decreased. There is just As in exhaustible suppl of Gold As there is of Silver and there has been just As much improvement in the methods of Ore yet the Price has steadily advanced merely from the fact that has created a greater demand for each year.
