THE COMMERCIAL AND COINAGE
Prior to 1800 the relative" values
of gold and silver had varied at dif
ferent times and places from 2 to 1
in India at the time of Alexander's
invasion, to 1 6 to 1 in 1793 through
out the commercial nations - of
Europe. From 1545 to 1560 the
average ratio in Europe was 11.30 to
3- About 1600 it had changed to
12.25 to l and CO years later was
about. 15 to 1. According to Gar-
bett, an . English refiner, the bullion
vaine oi ine two meiais varieu irom
1783 to 1793 19 per cent. Jn 1793
the commercial ratio was lo to 1.
In 1800 the price of silver had de
preciated until the ratio was 15.68;
eight years later it was 16.08 ; in 1813,
IG.25; from this time on the price of
silver rose gradually until in 1833 it
was within a small fraction of 16 to
3 and in 1837 it had further risen to
15.9883 to I; in 1870, the. time ihe
act of 1873 was first introduced the
price of silver was $1,328 per ounce
and its ratio to gold was 15.57. Dur
ing all these years since 1837 it
should be borne in mind the coinage
ratio was 15.9883. During One year,
1843, the price rose suddenly from
L303 to $1,927, the highest price
since the organization of the govern-
irient. But a year later it fell to.
,41.304. The foregoing figures aie
taken from tables of Sottbeer, Pixley
The world's product of gold and
silver, as far as we aie able ' to give
it, during the years mentioned is as

Gold .' ., . Silver
. . 83,500,000
From 1873 to 1892 inclusive, the
average annual gold product of , the
world has been $35,000,000 whije the
average annual silver product, com
mercial value, has been $19,650,000.
The coinage value of the average an
nual prod net during this same time
Las been $120,000,000. The conten
tion is made that the act of 1873 has
been the cause of the depreciation of
silver, and to undo the act of 1873
will restore silver dollars of 4I2
grains to a parity with gold. The
total world's product of . silver from
3792 to 1873 was $154,150,000, while
the world's product during the 5
years, 1873 to 1878, was $213,350,000.
These figures which are taken from
the statistics of. the.tJ. S. mint, show,
if they show anything, that the act

' Special Agent Dixon is parading
through the Oregoiiian Mr. J. H.
Sherar . of this county, one of the
most substantial law-abiding citizens
in the state of Oregon, as a violator
of the law and a man who disregards
his word. Mr. Sherar is not the kind
of a man this Dixon represents him
to be. Mr. Dixon has not found Mr.
Sherar's herders on the reserve and
has never ordered them off. It would
be a great satisfaction to the people
of Eastern Oregon if Mr. Dixon
would demonstrate that the sheep
men are violating the law or injuring
the government, and quit advertis
ing himself in tlie papers.
The Democratic papers are claim
ing that the act of congress under
which the sheep men are being ex
cluded from the Cascade mountains
was enacted under a Republican ad
ministration. The act referred to
was an act concerning the repeal of
the timber culture law, and the last
clause provides that the president
may set apart public lands as forest
reservations. The law passed March
3, 1891. Mr. Harrison continued in
office' until March 4, 1893, but the
Cascade timber reserve nonsense was
never thought of until Cleveland
came into office and made his procla
mation of September' 8, 1893. The
Republican party disclaims any re
sponsibility for this. or other attacks
upon the sheep industrj. :
Mr. Bryan's Columbus speech is in
effect:- "We all want more , money.
Open the mints to silver at 16 to I
and silver will be coined in enor
mous quantities, so that we can all
have'some,.' How will we get it into
circulation? "Why, just aa we get
gold into circulation, pay our obliga
tions and buy what we need.'"' Does
he believe his listeners are beinp;
fooled by this clap trap ? ' ..
. On most questions the opinion of
Judge Geo. II. Williams is. 'pretty
soqnd, but he too has joined. the gold
bugs" and is advocating the election
of McKinley. In fact nearly a'l the
careful thinking men of the nation
have done likewise. ' "
If Maine will speak ext Tuesday
as positively as "Vermont did. yester
day Ihe Boston woolbuyers will re
turn to Oregon and commence to do
business at the old stand, for McKin
ley's election will be pretty , well as
sured. . . " . ' r , . .
The Ideal Panacea.- ' . '
: Jamea L. Francis, Alderman, Chicago,
says : . "I regard Dr. King's" "New Dis
covery as an Ideal Panacea for coughs,
colds and Lung Complaints, having used
it in my family for the last five years,
to the exclusion of physician's prescrip
tions .or other preparations." ' ' --
Rev. v John Burgus, Keokuk, Iowa,
writes: "I have been a Minister of the
Methodist Episcopal church for 50 years
or more, and have never foiled anything
sobeneficia, or that gave me such speedy
relief aa Dr. King's New Discovery."
