A gentleman who, for prudential
reasons, declined to nllow the'uso of
his name, toldaSanFranclsco"Chron
lclo" reporter on'Wensday last that
the stories of the remarkable discover
ies In tho Cripple Creek region In
Colorado wore grossly exaggerated.
Callfornlans ' are too familiar with
boom methods to need the assurances
of this frank Coloradoan to discount
tho Crlpplo Creek yarns'. They do not
doubt that their arc good mines in
Cripple Creek, but they know that
the stories about tho fabulously rich'
discoveries aro chiefly bosh.
It is an open question whether the
methods deliberately adopted to boom
Colorado mines arc of any benefit to
the State. Tho stories of wonderful
discoveries promulgated recently have
tho effect of drawing a large number
of people, chiefly Impecunious fortune
hunters, but they do not succeed In
deceiving owners of capitals. Tho
latter wlH find good properties and
put their money into them without
the stimulus of exciting booms, and
the prosperity of a State or section Is
not promoted by drawing large
numbers of men to places where they
cannot, find work to maintain thorn
selves. There is no doubt in tho mind of
ony woll-lti formed mining man In Cal
ifornia that this State presents better
opportunities for tho employment of
capital than any other section of tho
Union. They are led to this conclu
sion by tho knowledge of tho profit
able operation of a great number of
mines, whoso owners take out vast
quantities of gold weekly, with as
much regularity as though mining for
tjioj yellow metal had no uncertainties
attached to it. Their vlow, too, Is
amply corroborated by the statements
of tho yield of tho precious metals.
"When a State produces ncarlly 10,
000,000 annually of gold so quietly
that only persons familiar with tho
niltilng industry know tho names of
tho big mines; or th6 localities In
which they are situated, It must bo
admitted that nclthor excitability
nor speculativo feverlshness marks
tho conduct of the business.
Tho almost entire absence of the
speculattv element 1b the disting
uishing feature of Callfornla'H mining
industry to-bay. Profitable mines are
being worked all over the State by
sober uusinccsB man wno occupy
great ueal or tnoir tuno in oiuer in
ustrlal enterprises. Tho business of
mining In California has become a
legitimate industry, and it will go on
increasing in Importance from year to

Mr. McRae Mr. Chairman, having
shown that no are strong enough to
fix our own standard of value, I want
to glvo some facts why we should act
Wc produce more sliver than any
other country. It is one of tho items
of oursnatlonal wealth, and It Is our
duty to legislate bo ns not to Injure it.
To adopt tho bl metallic standard
would boyond question enlargo Our
foreign commerce. Being tho leading
nation of tlio world, our geographical
position would soon glvo no control of
tho markots of tho world If wo should
enact wlso trado nnd financial laws.
Wo have courageously and patrioti
cally determined to enforce tho Mon
roe doctrlno, and passed the Wilson
bill to extend our trade, but still
have tho slnglo gold standard. Horc
wo are with sllvor-uslng Asia and
Mexico on ono side nnd gold-using
Europe on tho other, all reaching out
for our trade; some want tho products
of our mines, some of our farms, some
of our.torest, nnd others of our factor
icsVbntaU waiiftrado of Bomo kind.
The patriotic, statesmanllko thing to
do Is to extend to all of thorn tho
right hand of fellowship nnd at once
chango our monetary standard so us
to revive business, prevent further de
cline In prices in farm products, and
make It easy to scttlo International

statistics of our foreign commorce for

In tho principal silver-using conn
tried tho balance of trado Is against
us, while it Is In our favor In thoso
using gold ns tho stnndard. To silver
using Mexico, West Indies, and Asia
we owed a balance of 1102,650,120, and
to gold-using South Amorlca $78,041,
185. But, sir, when wo come to gold-
staudard Europe nnd Africa wo find
that tho balance In our favor Is $224,
050, 551. If these balances were set
tled by tho payment of tho metal
which Is tho standard of vuluo In tho
respective countries, then wo received
8100,308,307 more of gold than we
paid out, und 883,700,357 more gold
.than wo paid of both gold' nnd silver.
I know, Mr. Chairman, that Inter
national trade balances urc not set
tied in the coins of tho debtor govern
ments, but with bullion or coin at Its
bullion value; but It Is easy to see
what an advantage It Is to us to use
our silver when wo can, and for the
cotton, wheat, corn, and incut pro
ductti thai our farmers send to Eu
rope to receive gold bullion. This
shows that we are In no danger of
losing gold by adopting bimetallism
upon this slnglo part so far us
United States Is concerned.

Chnlrniari, Ifwcnro driven Into the
market to buy gold when wo have
sliver In the treasury, which ought
nover to bo done, wo know our country
will get it, as the bids Just opened
show, but every man who is proud of
our history aud hopeful of tho future
should Insist upon a broader monetary
monotury basis nnd a larger field for
our commerce. Shall we, when our
Christian civilization Is ripe, when
the countless resources of our country
are Iwltig discovered nnd developed,
when tho products of mine, farm,
forest, and factory to bo exchanged
nnd utilized by both tho gold and
sllvor using peoplo aro Increasing,
narrow the basis of our business? To
admit It Is to ask tho American people
to be satisfied with tho conditions of
tho old world. To follow tho financial
Dollcy of Europe Is to ylold to a con
cent on the standard American silver
dollar. Not a dollar In silver or silver
certificates has ever been or can be
legnlly redeemed In gold. Thoy are
are receivable for all debts due to the
United States this aud nothing more
has tho government done or promised
to do for them.
Mr. Lacoy Then why repeal tho
law that mukes that dollar good?
Mr. McRao I want to mako more
dollars llko them.
Mr. Boatuer I think my friend
from Arkansas did not understand
my suggestion, I agrco .with the
position ho now takes ns to the silver
dollar being monsy of final redemp
tion. That is tho position I havo
always taken. Many of tho advocates
of frco nnd unlimited coinage contend
that monoy Issued under the provis
ions of tho Bland-Allison act Is not
money of ilnal redemption, because
they say It Is subordinate to gold and
that tho whole volumo of our money
of llnal redemption Is restricted to the
gold circulation. I say that nil the
allvcr money issued under tho Bland
Allison uct ro-cn forces tho gold and
that all of It is money of final redemp
tion. Mr. McRao I think I understand
tho position of tho gentleman from
Louisiana. Tho silver dollars aro re
demption monoy to tho extent that
thoy do not require redemption them
solves. What I complain of Is that It
Is not used to redeem the paper obli
gations of tho government. I think
It Is tho duty of tho secretary of the
treasury to coin und use sliver in re
deeming tho notes and bonds of the
government. Thoy are nil payable in
silver, und I believe that If tho policy
of paying in gold alone was changed,
and sliver or silver nnd gold In equal
parts used, that the strain upon the
treasury caused by exporters of gold
would stop at once. If we can agree
on nothing else, lot us resolve to pre
vent tho retiring of tho present stock
of standard silver dollars.
Mr. Catclilngs Well, my friend It
so frank that I will bo obliged now
If he will let us know exactly what
ho understands by tho tcrm"blmct
ullUm." There seems to bo some
controversy und confusion with refer
ence to tho matter.
Mr. McRao I understand It to Ixj
tho legal right to have coined at a
fixed ratio both metals and the right
to use cither as money of final pay
Htcnt. In other words, tho "dollar,"
tho unit of value, should bo coined of
either metal und thus secure to debt
