ver says: "Its commodity value, at
the rate of 16 to 1 was even a little
more thaa gold-" Fatal admission
Mr. Bourne. It was at ono time at a
premium of 2 per cent without legis
lation. The question is, why at a
premium? Simply because at that
time its scarcity for subsidiary pur
posesfor making change the busi
ness of the country demanded in
creased use. Its increased demand
created a premium. Unlimited coin-,
age of silver will drive cold into
hiding and cause no increased de
mand, to be called out with a pre

" Those halcyon days for silver was
before the mints were coining it by
tho million., Now tbo vaults of the

and bullion because the business of

with ultimate gold redemption, to
silver except for 6ubsidiaiy uses.
Over 1400,000,000 of silver lies idle
in the U. S. Treasury because tho
people will not handlo it. Every
man, oven tho populist who presents
a hundred-dollar check at n bank, do
mands gold or paper because it is
more convenient to "pack." This is
a fact which cannot bo gainsayed.

and national bank notes are good ns

This stipulation every prudent
business man will requiro in all de
ferred payments, even if he be a pop

the most liable to maintain its pres
