Some time ago, when the question of
the power of the Secretary of the Treas
ury to use any part of the $100,000,000
gold reserve was nnder consideration,
Solicitor-General Aldrich waa instructed
by the Attorney-General to look up the
matter. Aldrich's opinion in brief is:
"First, the Secretary of the Treasury
has a continuing power to issue bonds to
redeem the legal tender of 1802 and ls3
in.i ni.mi,i.l nn.lut. tiia oi.f nf Miv n
IS78, but I am of tbe opinion it is not at
all necessarv. Second, there is no re-
nuirement for the redemption of the

the policy of using silver I am not pre-
pared to urge this action. It might cans
a panic, nut it could nndoiiutediv be
done. Third, the Secretary of the Treas
ury has no power to issue bonds redeem
able in either gold or silver. The law
stipulates they shall be redeemed in coin,
which means either gold or silver now,
nd did so mean at the time of the pass-
J aft9 0f the law." Thi opinion, while
jed nd prepared, was not delivered,
owin), to the fact that the occasion did
' not demand it. Aldrich aavs: "Ths
belief that there is no positive provision
of law requiring $100,000,000 reserve
1 shall be kept is in mv opinion correct.
, It ia also true under the law, as I nnder-
stand it, that all legal-tender notes may
be redeemed in coin. This was the case
