SOME SUBSTANTIAL REASONS.
A report made to congress in 1834
gave some substantial reasons whj
the monetary system of the country
should be based upon a single stand
ard. That standard should consist
of the metal which has been found
best to suit the purpose. Gold has
never fluctuated in value to the ex
tent that other metals have, and has
been adopted by the great nations of
the world as tbe best standard, of
value. .Under the gold standard bi
metallism is possible since both
metals can circulate together. Un
der a silver standard there will be
silver monometalism. The report
of the commission, which follows, is
as applicable to the hituation today
as it was in 1834: .
"That gold or silver is the only
sound, invariable and perfect cur
rency that human wisdom has de
vised." "That one metal may be selected
with a certain assurance of finding
in the raeial chosen such proportion
of the entire amount of the money
of commerce as their exchangable
commodities bear to the total amount
of merchandise produced."
4,If both metals are preferred, the
like relative proportion of the ag
gregate of the metallic cuirency will
be possessed, subject to frequent
changes from gold to silver and vice
versa, according to the variations in
the relative value of these metals.
"That the desideratum in themon
. ctary system is a standard of uni
form value; they (the committee)
cannot ascertain that both metal."
Jiave ever circulated simultaneously,
concurrently, and indiscriminately iu
any country where there are banks or
money dealers; and they entertain
the conviction that the nearest ap
proach to an invariable standard
is its establishment in one metil,
which metal shall compose exclusive
ly the currency of the country." :
Hence, it .coaeludes, "That there
are inherent and incurable defects in
the system which regulates the stand
ard of value in both gold and silver,
its instability as a measure of con
tracts, and mutability as tbe practi
cal currency of a particular nation,
are serious impel feci ions. Whilst
the impossibility of maintaining both
metals in concurrent, simultaneous,
or promiscuous circulation appears to
be clearly ascertained."
"That the standard being fixed in
one metal is the nearest approach to
invariableness, and precludes the ne
cessity of further legislative inter
ference." . : .
"That if it be deemed advisable
to maintain' both gold and silver
coins in steady circulation, and to
preserve silver as the measure of
commerce and of contracts, gold
must be restricted to small pay
ments." (And vice versa if gold
shall be the measure.)
A communication published on an
other page will amuse as it will fail
to instruct those who read it. It i&
the argument of one, who believes
that by the independant action of
this government the value of silver
can be doubled. The arguments he
advances can be applied to copper,
iron, or any other metal with, equal
force. He admits the charge of in
sincerity, of purpose which is made
against the free" silver advocates by
saying that the silver men want the
privilege of taking sixty cents yorth
of silver to the mint and haviDg it
stamped, a dollar. Such a plea needs
nor deserves no answer. The com
munication . is . printed merelj to
show to what lengths of folly a man
will go who assumes his premises and
argues from them. There must be
but oue standard of value, and ex
perience has shown gold to be the
best. Despite all statements to the
contrary, this country has enjoyed
its greatest period of prosperity
since 1873, the time when, according
to "Trnthseeker," the "great crime"
