is It not?
Wo say this is not sound political

both gold and silver,' not gold alone,
arc the basis of our currency system.
True political economy suggests that
a government furnish its pcoplo as
largo a volume of non-Interest bearing
currency as posslble.Mr. Carllslo and
tho bankers say thafTslIver bullion In
tho treasury has depreciated $100,000,

tho peoplo that the currency which it
is now proposed to take up and Issue
Interest-bearing gold bonds has saved
tho pcoplo 2,000,000,000 of Inter

place that on the credit side of the
nation's ledger. They simply want to
enlarge tho suction power of tho
