because all the people pull together and
there is no snarling as everybody has a
good word for everybody and Gardiner
in particular. James Carswell.
The Question Solved..
Editor Plaixdealer: I am not a
scholar, much less a political student,
but by your leave I will correct some cf
the errors which have, either inadvert
antly or otherwise, crept into your con
tention for a gold standard.
The Bryan programme ia as follows, as
near as the writer can explain it: First
open the mints to eilver coinage at 412)2
grains to tho dollar. This coin to be
the standard and measure ol everything.
Wo claim that the opening of the mints
to silver will raise the price of silver
bullion by creating a demand for silyer
It will decrease the demand for gold,
thus decrease tho value of gold bullion ;
and bringing the two metals nearer to
gether. Then if 'gold refuses to circu
late, nud we think it necessary, take a
little gold out of the gold dollar and put
a littlo more silver into the silver dollar
and thus the question will be solved.

understand the Gresham law of money
