The Dalles Daily Chronicle.
The only Republican Daily Newspaper
SEPT. 12, 1896
"We have in circulation about
$498,449,000 in gold , and gold certi
jicates, aboui $443,444,000 in silver
ami silver " certificates, and about
$567,840,000 in other currency.
Drive the gold out of circulation by
permitting it to go to a premium,
and the result will be a contraction
of our currency by over 33 per cent.
But "what will we get in exchange
for our gold ? "Will we not get
for that gold twice as much silver?"
These questions are the only solu
tion of the difficulty we have seen or
The Chronicle thinks we may
get some silver, but a great deal
more in securities upon vrhich we
have borrowed money in Europe.
These securities, if due, will be col
lected, and the money paid to take
them up will not be reinvested here,
but will be shipped to Europe. If
the securities are not due, they will
be placed upon the markets and
those interested in the properties will
be forced to buy them in for self
protection. This collection and sell
ing of American securities in Europe
has been one great cause of the ship
ment of gold ' out of the country
since the silver agitation began.
The capital which built our railroads
is very larsely European capital; the
capital which has developed our
mines and other resources has, much
of it, been borrowed in Europe by
the sale of - stocks and bonds. As
these mature, or the investors be
come alarmed, the investment is
withdrawn and the money shipped
to Europe, and actually withdrawn
But if silver should be shipped in,
as is claimed, it would require many
years to coin and get into circulation
an amount equal to the gold coin
now in circulation. The time re
quired for this is estimated by the,
mint officials to be fifteen years.
Free coinage of silver at 16 to I
will drive gold to a premium and
keep it there so long as the bullion
value of silver is less than $1.29 per
ounce. We think this is not seii
ously controverted, even by free
coinage advocates. "Wages are al
ways the last to be affected by an
upward tendency in prices; the em
ployer of labor will continue to pay
the same wages, but will pay in the
depreciated money. Thus labor will
be paid in "53-cent dollars f not
necessarily in dollars worth 53 cents,
but in the dollars which are now
worth 53 cents in bullion, and will
then be worth only their bullion
"Value -and t.llia ?H nil that ia -mo.mt
by the assertion that laborers will be
paid in 53-cent dollars. ' The Chron
icle is of the opinion that the elec
tion of Bryan will drive gold to a
premium at occe, the disparity being
perhaps slight at first, and'increasing
as the probability of free coinage
legislation increases. , "When the
mints are opened and the bullion
owner is permitted to present his
bullion and receive his dollars, he
will reap a profit, not neoessarily of
47 cents, but of a 'sum equal to the
difference between the actual bullion
value of silver and the coinage value,
whatever that difference may be.
78 Second Street.
These dollars he can ancf will use to
pay all existing obligations, except
those calling for gold coin. To that
extent he will reap a profit. He will
use them' to pay the labor which pro
duces from his mine the bullion.
The price of this labor may advance
somewhat, but not in proportion to
the depreciation of the money by
which he is paid. To this further
extent ' the mine owner will reap a
further profit. "Now, will the kin
dergarten disciple, who through the
Mountaineer seeks knowledge" at our
little schcol, come around and pay
his tuition before si-'ver will be the
only money in, circulation.
Now is a good time to begin an
active campaign by means of speak
ers throughout our county. The
campaign of reading matter Jias
been well conducted, but many
men have not the time nor the
opportunity to iead. Such would be"
glad to hear the issues discussed.
We have in our own midst many
men who have studied the questions
carefully, and who doubtless could
aid those who have had less time to
give to them, by public discussions.
If speakers from abroad cannot be
had, send those we have in our
midst; let there be an earnest cam
paign conducted in every commun
ity. There is no time to lose. The
Republican party has nothing to lose
by a full discussion of the issues. , If
the Republican position is thorough
ly understood, there will be no ques
tion about the election of the Re
publican ticket. ' ,--
Since January 1, 1896, we have
coined $11,212,412 in silver dollars
of 412 grains each, a larger amount
than the entire coinage of silver dur
ing any one year prior to 1873. The
largest coinage of silver by the
United States in any one year prior
to 1873 was in 1853, when the total
silver compge was a little over nine
million dollars. . Since 1873, and
prior to 1896. we have coined $544,-
142,477 in silver, and never ,has one
dollar of it passed for less than $1 in
gold, and it has always been readily
exchangable with gold. What better
treatment should silver ask?
We very much regret that our
campaign managers allowed Gov
ernor McConnell of Idaho to come
and go without giving the people of
The Dalles an opportunity to hear
him. The people of this city would
have been glad to hear him, and we
believe he could have done much
good. ; He spent an evening here a
few days ago, and left without being
invited to speak.
