The Oh| ss ta A Ina sd at In His Yreaswry Dspartassnt's Bill —Evils TUa« Woald KssaM fr«n the Purchase af Silver Kab Men ne lfeelred by the Ex I re nits ta The Week la Congress. W asm!*ii ton, April 21. — Heeretary Wisdom has addressed a letter to# W cete rn correspondent in answer to comments and inquire* about the present tutus of the silver question The secretary, diwunttng the pending measures bef ors eon grass and the silver question generally, says: “The bill recommended by the treasury was framed mainly for two purposes:    Find. to meet the demand for an tncreaaa <4 circulation, aud. second, ie enhance the value of silver by providing for R an additional and safe us* aa money If approved by congress, it will, in my judgment, accomplish both of tkees objections, and at tbs aam* time afford a fair and just basis for harmony of action un the si Ivor question To the silver interests it offers every substantial benefit that can be granted w ithout peril to our financial ayu tem, ami far greater advantages than can be found in fie* coinage. To those who demand more money, It offers aa annual I rn'reave of from *50,000,OOT) ie $00,000,OOO To th-ie* who insist upon a sound currency it gives the amplest guarantee# against d*q;radaUon <*f tbs Amencaa del ar. But ie those whe would inflate th* currency by injecting into it a large volume of money without adequate safeguards against depreciation, k offer# no comfort whatever And right her# is found Ut* secret of much of the opposition to some of its redemption features “In reply to your friendly criticisms, lot me invite your attention to th* extraordinary oouceaMious which ae* offered to the diver sentiment of the oountry First, it is proposed to absorb all the silver produced by the mines and reduction works of the United States, thereby withdrawing from the market nearly one-half of th* entire silver product of th* world, and thus greatly enhancing the value of the whole. Second, net content with this concession, which is surely without a parallel as to any other product, the sensu* committee insists that tbs govsrnment shall be compelled to purchase $4,.500,Olio worth of I silver in each month, making $54,000,000 a year, which, with th* amount nee-ted for th# art* and for our trad* with China, will ex- ) oeed our own production by about $10,000,000 per annum How is this excess to bs obtained f Only by purchase# from abroad In th* event of an unfavorable balance of trade when oar gold will he most needed at home. we shall be compelled to export $10,000,00# of gold, which we will then sorely need to pay for $10,000,000 of stiver which wa will not need at all. This compulsorv pun bass of so greet sn amount will maks the treasury : the largest operator in the meet gigantic ‘comer’ ever organised 1111111, the bill reported by th* bouse committee provide* that tile notes issued for silver bullion site ll I* redeemed in standard silver dollars if demanded by the holder. This will givs to owners of silver bullion the power to eon vert every ounce produced la this country into standard dollars at their own will and pleasure True, there is not the slightest danger that this power will be exercised, because no sans man will prefer to convert treasury note#, which the government is bound to redeem in gold, or it# equivalent, into standard silver dollars, aa Ism he may want a limited Sumter of them for eome specific purposes Under this bill th* government will not force silver dollars into circulation, but it will permit any one to have coined as many of them as he can pay for with treasury notes What more tan the advocates of silver coinage demandt Burely nothing unless they desire to compel the treasurv to force standard silver dollars into our circulation for the sole purpose of depreciating and degrading it. Is it not enough that w# take nearly one half of the worlds silver product and lock it up in order to increase the value of the other half For all these unparalleled con ceylon* to the silver interest#, w hat ie demanded in return I Oui? the privilege of protecting the honor and credit of the nation by a grant of power to redeem its notes in either gold or in its equivalent of silver bullion AU of these bills on this subject contemplate a policy to extend over an indefinite period, aud which will result in tbs issue of a very large volume of treasury notea lf they he made redeemable in lawful mutiey, they must tie paid in the best lawful money if descended. la accordance with the high rule of honor which this government ha# thus far maintained, and by which it has established a credit the pride and boast of our people IX the balance of trade shall turn against us: or if distrust shall arias as to our ability to pay in g*ld when demanded, the government will be compelled to discriminate against silver dollars, when gold will at once command a premium, and this nation wiU step down from it# present proud position, and take its place on the financial basis of China, India an*I Mouth America It is to save ai from Urn danger tbet I have insisted so strenuously for the provision to redeem in gold or it* equivalent of silver bullion I know of lait two ways by which the proposed issue of treasury notes can be anchored to tbs recognized value# of the commercial world One is the bullion redemption feature provided in th# treasury bill, and th# other is authority to sell bonds in order to provide a reserve fund to meet the constantly increasing volume of proposed treasury note*. Tile latter I believe to be both unnecessary and unjustifiable The former I believe to be entirely practicable and safe. \ Even with this safeguard against destruction to the fair fabric of our national credit, the extraordinary oon»>essi*»n# above mentioned approach as near to the ‘dangerous edge of peril, as prudence will dare to tread Rather than go on# step further in that direction, I firmly believe that it would be far better to have no legislation on the subject " nu • *»v f ter efVrt th.* w I tn<l if it ye** us it is ukel* iv th# subj *>t far Friday*# debate fc.u. lay th* Besuit* tokes up the oalendsr.
