Mr. Athcrlon has handed us an
article from the New York Times,
of Jan. 28th, which is headed,
"Fighting the Silver Nuisance."
Our great republican neighbor we
might almost appropriately say,
patron is face to face with a very
serious currency question. While,
in this country, the decision in favor
of a gold standard has been made,
and only awaits the convenience of
the Government to be fully estab
lished ; in the United States, whose
gold coin is the standard measure of
money-value for Canada on the one
hand and Hawaii on the other, there
is a controversy going on, as to
whether gold should not be made the
single standard of currency for her
own people. The 'Times, in the
article referred to, discusses the bill
reported by Mr. Morrill from the
Sinnto Committee on Finance, for
the redemption of trade dollars and
the conditional suspension of the
coinage of standard dollars. This
measure it considers, " so far as it
goes, a practical piece of legisla
tion." First of " several excellent
features," the Times says the bill
" disposes of the trade dollar ques
tion in a manner as satisfactory as
could be expected after the varied
and unusual blundering in which that
question has been involved." As
amended by the Senate committee,
from the form in which it was re
ceived from the House, the bill pro
poses to give a standard silver
dollar for any trade dollar pre
sented before the first of next
July at any Sub-Treasury. This
would give four months from the
first of March for the redemption of
this "unfortunate coin," and al
though speculators who had bought
up the coins to get a profit would
get it, that could not well be avoided
in any measure that provided for
relieving those who accepted the
coins in good faith before the public
uprising against them. The bill
also provides that the redeemed trade
dollars shall be melted up, and that,
at their bullion value, they shall be
counted as part of the S2,000,000
worth of Bilver to be coined monthly
into standard dollars, provided that
not more than half a million dollars'
worth shall be so used in any one
month. This limitation the Times
regards as n concession to the silver
men, to protect the artificial market
provided for them at the expense of
the "helpless taxpayers." In the
second place the bill deals with the
" standard " dollars" so-called,"
the Times observes, " on the lucus
non principle, because they do not
conform to any known standard of
actual value recognized ou the face
the icnownl f negotiation with
foreign tuitions, lo endeavor to j?el
them lo open their mints lo the
"fico coinage of silver, with full
legal lender value, at an agreed
ratio lo gold." In ease no treaties
aru inadu to effect' that object, then
nfter the first of August of next
year, the' law directing tlio coinage
of silver dollars Is to be suspended.
The Times considers that the only
justification of the postponement of
the suspension of silver coinage, lies
in the entertainment of the hope by
a certain number of law-makers, lliat
an agiecmcht can be reached be
tween a sulllcicnt number of the na
tions of the world, for the free
coinage of legal tender silver at a
common ratio to gold, which will
keep the value of silver fixed at the
ratio so determined. It, however,
regards the attempt to bring the
other nations round to the policy
that would suit the silver men, as
useless. We give the concluding
remarks of the Times in full, for
the benefit of 'those people in this
country, who look upon the Currency
ActoflSSI as a measure devised
mainly for the benefit of wealthy
capitalists aiid speculators. There
are such people, and there arc those
who know better but endeavor lo
propagate the absurd notion for pur
poses best known lo themselves:
"There is absolutely nothing in
the history of the action of the Gov
ernments of the countries consli
tutinc the ' Latin Union,' or in
that of the action of the more im
portant Governments of Germany
and Great Britain outside the union,
or in the movement of public opinion
in any of these countries, to give
authority lo the inference that any
such agreement can be reached. Nor
is there the slightest encouragement
in the history of the quixotic experi
ment that has been tried by the
United States for nearly eight years
to encourage the belief that such an
agreement between some or all of
the principal commercial powers
would bring about any such results
as the bi-mctnllists hope from it. On
the contrary, the opinion has gained
ground, and has been strengthened
by our experience, that compulsory
coinage of silver at anv fixed ratio
to gold, while it might produce con
fusion and intensify the disturbance
arising from other sources, cannot
control the causes that produce an
inequality in the purchasing power
of the two metals, varying from time
to time. Instead of free coinage at a
fixed ratio, the only policy that can
avoid trouble is to accept as the
common standard the one metal,
gold, which is everywhere of like
value, and to leave the relations of
silver lo it to be regulated by the
laws of exchange. We shall have no
stcadypeacc and prosperity, as far
as currency is concerned, until this
be done. In the meantimo, if a plan
to renew the hopeless fooling with
other nations on the subject is neces
sary to secure common sense legis
lation on the suspension of coinage,
the inconvenience and dcly must be
borne as best they may."
