Green young man why.

It Is but a little more than threo
weeks since the gold .contractlonlsLs,
frightened by the rapid depletion or
the treasury gold reserve, the early
prospect or another bond Issue, , and
the Inevitable elTcct-thnt buch Issuoor
bonds with which to bolster lip our
tottering gold standard must have
had upon voters, took steps to re
plenish tho gold ii'mtvo and place a
check on Ihedopoitalloii or gold and
consequent drain on the gold reserve.
To distract tho masses or tho Ameri
can pcoplo from the consideration of
the Iniquities of tho gold standard
has been, to tho gold coutractlonlsts,
n prlmo necessity and another bond
Issue would havo dono much to rocus
tho attention or voters on a monetary
system that has proven so faulty nnd
unstitblo that It has only been kept
from collnpso during tho past threo
years by bond Issuo after bond lssuo
and the saddling of interest chargo
after Interest chargo on our people.
That such focusing of tho attention
of American voters on our money sys
tem must upset tho fond hopes of tho
gold coutractlonlsts who hopo to still
furthor profit from u continuance of
tho suffering of our producing classes
that is Inseparable from tho appreci
ating gold standard nnd a continued
fall In prices consequent thereon, wns
and is quite evident nnd to none more
so than the gold coutractlonlsts. So,
when towards tho last of July another
bond Issuo was threatened they strovo
to nvort It. Tho Now York banks,
followed by thoso of Philadelphia,
Boston and Chicago, surrendered to
the government In exchange forgrcen
backs, suniclent of tholr holdings of
gold to rnlso tho treasury gold rcsorvo
to -a mini considerably in excess of
$100,000,000. But after having thus
replenished tho gold rcsorvo to an
amount In excess of tho sum of $100,
000,000, fixed upon tho gold coutract
lonlsts and without authority or law
as tho minimum uciow which mo
government cannot permit tho
amount of gold hold for tho redempt
ion of government papor, of green
backs nnd treasury notes, to, fall with
safety, tho question was how to keep
It Intact. Tho drain on tho treasury
for gold has been largely duo to tho
demand for gold for export and tho
greenbacks nnd treasury notes pre
sented at tho Now York aub-treasjiry
for redemption lit gold had been
largely presented by those bankers
dealing In exchange und who had
need or gold for export to cover tho
drafts they had drawn on London nnd
tu meet tho demands of remittors. To
avert tho shipment of gold was tho
first step that hud to bo taken to
check tho drain on the gold rcsorvo.
And this step tho exchango banket,
