INCREASE OF GOLD '
More than ono ablo authority de
clares that tho higher price ot liv
ing Is duo to tho Increase in tho
production ot gold. This Incrcaso
has, according to tho claim ad
vanced, and In some Instances pre
dictions made soverot years ago, put
gold In the same general ''class as
silver when the moncy'value .of that
medium becamo cheap on account of

1908 showed an Increase of $31,

Tho total gold production of
441,932,200 was the largest of any
1 car In tho world's history. It was
more than double that ot 1896,
when low prices armed Mr. Bryan
wltlrhls chief argument for the re
monetlzatlon of .silver. It .nearly
quadrupled the yield of any of tho
great gold years following tho dis
coveries in California and Australia.
During the middle ages tho
world's stpek of gold remained 'near
ly stationary. Substantial Increases
began 'soon after the discovery of
Amorlca, but the yield of the 'last
ten jcaia alone has been more than
one-quartcr'aB great as the total out
put of the world since Columbus
landed on San Salvador.
BRITISH GOVERNMENT PROGRAM
Oreat Britain's voters bust ngaln

Throughout the newspapers and

other appeal to tho people will be.

stances the prediction Is made even
by Conservatives that the Liberal or
Budget forces will be returned
stronger than at tho present time.
One ot tho very Instructive fore
casts ot tho situation Is contained
In a recent Issue of the London
Daily Mall. This, paper states that
tho Government is .preparing to
carry out the following course:
"Tho Budget of 1909-10, which
the Houso of Lords referred to the
Judgment of tho country, will bo In
troduced in the House of Commons
onto mc-re and carried by resolution.
"The House of Commons will then
bo invited to uass a resolution as
sorting its inalienable right over fi
nance and rejecting tho pretensions
of tho Houso of Lords to Interfere
with that privilege.
"The Chancellor of tho Exchequer
will make his Budget statement for

"The Houso of Commons will then
adjourn for one month over tho

will frame a bill for tho reform' ot
tho Houso ot Lords. Tho nature ot
this bill will be a subject for long
and careful consideration; but It

" J noro has been mucn taiK in recent
