A Gold Standard Authority Concedes the Justice of the De

tho United States Mint, to tho Editor of Tun Jouunal, which wo reproduce else-
Tho Oregonian took Mr. Roberts to task Iwoauso ho told tho truth about
Blaine, Garfield, MoKinloy and Carlisle. Ho said thoy made hcoc1ioh for free
coinage and voted for free coinago when tho gold output was constantly declining
and bimetallism was a necessity. Roberts told tho truth and tho Orogoniun nan

Tho Director of tho mint stated that as tho GOLD product hy BKX) would
probably oqual tho total GOLD AND SILVER product of 1890, tho last argument
for free coinage OF BOTH metals wus done away with.
In our editorial wo tried to show that this was un admission that tho Himt
allist argument was sound in 1800 ami that thoy woro right in demanding a
larger volume of coinage then. Tlio Director of tho Mint arguod that tho volume
of coinago of standard money thoy donmndod In 1800 was ii good thing and ho
rejoiced that it would Iw supplied by gold alono In 1W0, and thoroforo thoro was
no more need oi bimetallism.
Wo rejoice with Mr. Roberts that thu increased output of gold in 1000 will
cie the iwoplo a little larger volume of basic monoy. While this coneedos tlio
principle, it does not meet the demand of bimutalliits in 1800 or at prosont. ho
