"In the St. Louis convention of 1S9 after
a protracted struggle and withdrawal of
some delegates, the rlatform was adopted
declaring "We ate opposed to the free coin

of the world, which v.e pledge ourselves to

obtained the existing golJ standard must

nominated for President, who.whlle a mem

for tho RIand bill, giving free coinage to
silver at 16 to 1; then voted for Allisons
amendment limiting the amount of such
coinage, Rnd after a Republican President.
Mr. Hayes, had vetoed it. voted to pass the
bill over tho veto, and had also voted f ' r

The Republican platform hoists that "the
volume of money in circulation was tievtr

denounces the free and unlimited coinage of
silver without tha s-rpport of the leading
nations of the world. Thus ! unwittingly

volume of money had a controllirg influence

"George Washington and the framcrs of
