While i to i of the democracy and shia Khz coinage written for the Light. A prominent democratic official of High standing in a letter to sex president Cleveland says i believe the apparent support of any democrats of this proposition for free coinage arose from their just desire to kill the Force Bill which thank god is now it seems amazing to ascribe such motives for the support of this measure to an intelligent and ship used conscientious body of men Many 01 whom have Long favored Tho principle involved. It is but fair to pre sume that they were prompted to sup port free coinage from the belief that it would enhance the of farm pro ducts the rate of wages and increase Prosperity by on Anding the volume of Money in circulation. That their logic May be the product of immature thought and vague reasoning a sentimental Digrius fatuous argues no want of integrity. They Are honest Silver advocates seeking a sol vent for a evil that perhaps no Rem Edy will cure and by their votes aligned themselves on a plane with their constituents with a precision that required neither apology nor explanation. To As sume that the democrats coalesced with a score of republicans interested in aug menting the value of Silver to enact a Law which they knew would demoralize business and impair credit to gain transient party advantage is to intimate their willingness to form improper alliances whenever it will prolong party ascend ency. No measure of ethics or Honor permits the achieve ment of needful and honest legislation by encumbering of it with ambiguous measures to attract mercenary Aid nor justifies a Cabal in relegating to the undertaker s limbo a party measure to exploit another infinitely More Damag ing to Public welfare. Wholesome legis lation is impartial rests on intrinsic Merit Aud is divested of the esoteric methods and Complex appliances which Are sometimes invented to achieve ulterior and illicit ends not obtainable in the sunlight of honest Endeavor. Self inter est invites the Silver states to advocate free coinage with its Twenty five per cent of Fiat value to stimulate its production a fact singly Uuttu Iem to discourage its Espousal elsewhere Yil u v set a whole party vote for this a dissent too feeble u excite a Ripple inspired with the notion that its Success would a Vail Wilile uhf ii to the Labouring classes in fax t it unconsciously amp Usu error. Would the Nisi injure who indirectly expect the largest profit from it. It is not Wise for a party to seek the opinion of the tickle multitude to conform to it and speak for it whether it be right or wrong nor to engraft upon its sound doctrines delusive theories that May have a mistaken faction behind them clamor ing for a policy sure to work its own destruction. Nor to devise a platform so hybrid in Structure so veiled in metamorphic verbiage that it May signify one policy in the North Ami another at the West and South. The fact is obvious that when National platforms contravene the principles the party has voted for during the preceding four years they do not express real opinions but Are framed to win votes which the record of the party would not give them. The experience of centuries has demonstrated that Gold and Silver Are the most convenient metals Chat can be used As mediums of Exchange in business transactions. That Gold from its greater value in proportion to us bulk and weight is much the More desirable of the two for this purpose hence Silver has been Rele gated to a subsidiary position As com pared with Jerold and As related to its own use in earlier periods when cruder methods Subserve the limited operations of Trade and Commerce and before the utmost facility in All material develop ments had become in the great commercial and manufacturing centers Silver Coin must henceforth play a very subordinate role. Us Only apparent Utility being its fun Riou As fractional pieces. Treasury notes based on Silver at current value will circulate freely As Gold so Long As there is Little divergence in the relative value of the two instals. Currency being the More convenient Agency in Exchange it is possible the certificates May take the place of the coins in a great measure. As a monetary agent in the present business of the country Silver has the same fitness As has the lumber Wagon for general rail Road Tracie. The objection to the use of Silver is limited to its being pressed into service without adaptation. The first coinage was authorized in april 1702 and up to 1873 but seven and a half million Dollar pieces had been coined. And at the latter Date none of them could be found outside of the hands of the col lectors of Coin curiosities. They had risen in value until As Bullion they touched 1.31, and had been turned into spoons and Forks. Sofas flyer dollars had been of no material service As Money and had not their value relegated them to the melting pot they were too cumbrous to be popu Lar As such. The phrase the Silver Dol Lar of our daddies is of modern coinage and conveys an impression of something that had merely a mythical existence. There was no pressure for the Silver Dollar until 1878 Silver had declined so that it was remunerative to Coin it into dollars. The government then began coining it at the rate of per annul. This was expected to appreciate Silver but it slowly declined until the Silver to make a Dollar was sold at cents but rallied to about 7t cents in january 1890. At the session of Congress in 1890 an act was d requiring the annual Purchase of ounces of Silver Worth some and to be paid for in Treasury notes which would circulate As currency. I though this exceeds our production the present Bullion value of the Silver Dollar is but 76 cents and we have of them piled up in the Treasury which no creditor of the government i will take for maturing Bonds. In View of this plethora of Silver Coin that is refused How absurd is Tho conclusion that free coinage will us a monetary Ercula on that the people will absorb. Is there of by equity in the anomalous demand that the government transform 76 cents Worth of Silver into a Dollar for the Bene Tufa few not objects of special solicitude while leaving Arother needy Elass it id the cold to shirk for themselves without any Bonus whatever the class who advocate Issue of Money by the government 10 be loaned to the needy per cent favor free coinage deeming it the entering wedge to full fledged Fiat Money. Of the one and a half billion in circulation the first of april was in Gold in subsidiary
