Inconsistency of Gold- Gugs.
The strongest argument, seem
ingly, brought forward in this cam
paign by the republicans and gold
standard democrats, is 50 the cent
dollar. They aigue if we shouldby
law adopt free coinage of silver,
gold would immediately rush to
the European countries, and we
would have nothing but the poor
depreciated silver dollar. Butthen
they argue that |a bimetallic sys
tem isbest with international agree
inent, which, by the way, under no
circumstances will we ever get.
Now the inconsistency is, that sil
ver is a bad thing for a few but a
great thing for the many, 50 cents
for the United States, but a dollar
for the world. Do you see the
point? Now it being an acknowl
edged fact that free silver is the
best for the world,fjwhy not the
United States set the example by
l»eing the initiative of this good
thing for the world? Set the ex
ample and the world will follow.
Let the United States be the strong
arm that is put forth to lift labor
from Jthe slough of despondency
and lifted to the standard of respect
ability. Let history have it record
ed that this great republic, the
friend of mankind, was the first to
solve the financial problem, and set
to rest the vexed question. Be it
known that most of our scholarly
men, and just men. everywhere con
demn the gold standard, and how
is "it possible to crush this gold
standard monopoly unless some
powerful nation take the lead?
And tn« world can never find a bet
leader than this republic.
age annual market ratio« ranged for
almost the whole time in the neigh
hood of 15j to 1, and never varied
more than from 15.04 to 1 to 16 25
to 1. It would also have shown
that while the production from
1870 to 1895 approached more near
ly to the mint proportions than
ever before in the centurv.the value
of silver fluctuated between 15.57
and 32.56 to 1.
‘'Concurrent circulation” is not
the test of a successful monetary
policy, although there was never a
in times of speeie payments between
1803 and 1874 when silver five
franc pieces and gold twenty franc
pieces did not circulate together in
France, and when both gold and
silver wer-1 not coined at the French
mintR. The real test is stability
of value. It makes little difference
whether one metal or the orlher or
both be in circulation if the fluctu
ations in value can be kept within
narrow limits. Between 1837 and
1873 th-1 gold value of 371j grains
of pure silver never averaged more
than $1.052 or less than $1003.
The range of fluctuation was less
than five cents on the dollar in
and 1895 the jiold value of the same
amount of silver varied between
49.1 cents and $1.004. There was
a greater fluctuation in a week than
the e had been with open mints in
seventy years. That ought to ans
wer the question whether the policy
of open mints proved a success or
not. as compared with the one that I
