It is stated that if we should adopt
free silver coinage it would take con
siderable time to inflate the currency
with sufficient silver to disturb prices
because the capacity of the mint is
not unlimited. But this is a follacy,
says the Commercial Review. . If
the free silver party should win the
silver act would unquestionably be
accompanied by a clause authorizing
the treasury to issue silver certificates
oh the deposit of bullion. The re
sult as respects the currency would
he precisely the same as if actual
silver dollars had been issued. The
silver party is well aware'of the diffi
culty of circulating actual silver
dollars, and the expediency of using
the certificate in place ot the silver
dollar has been demonstrated bv our
(experience with the Bland dollars.
The mills and not the mints will
enable the laboring men of this
country to acquire the necessaries
and many of the luxuries of life.
The mills and not the mints will cre
ate new markets for the fanners'
products. The mills and not the
mints will increase wages by creating
a, larger demand for skilled labor,
which, like everj' other commodity
on earth; is amenable to the inex
orable law of supply and demand.
The mills and not the mints can ' in
crease the price: of the farmers'
products, for every new mill, built
under protection, creates a new mar
let and helps to build, np a town, for
men who work in mills must eat. In
creasing the demand for products
must inevitably tend to increase the
price of produce.
If we coin a silver dollar of full
legal tender below the current value
of he gold dollar, we are simply
opening our doors and inviting Eng
land to take our gold. With our
gold flowing out from us we shall be
forced to the single silver standard,
and our relations with the leading
commercial countries of the, world
would be not only- embarrassed, but
crippled. . What gain should we
make, therefore, for the circulating
medium if on opening the gate -for
ailYer to flow in, we open a- still
wider gate, for gold to ; flow out?
