BILL WILLIAMS FORK
Homo time ago, a prominent Kngllsh '
authority voiced the fear that there
would be more gold than the world
could me. Following this, other au
thorities have expiessed the fear that
the world's gold production is nlreadv
at its zenith, and that, from now on,
it will show a steady decline. One is
nt'raid of too much, and others fear
The more gold produced, the great
er will be the demand on the part of
the trades. The more gold that goes
into coinage, t lie more use the indus
tries will find for it. It is in the na
ture of a stimulant to business of all
kinds, and the more business there is,
the more money is needed. In the
meantime, bankers tell us there is a
steady Km through abrasion; that the
more gold there is in circulation, the '
greater tho actual loss. Khniibl some
one uncover a gold deposit Hint would !
yield several billion dollars in a few I
years, that midden addition to the gold I
supply might work havoc in prices of
commodities through dangerous spec
illation. So one, we mlglit add, Iuih
stumbled upon anything so rich. Ho
fnr us wo can tell, no one is in danger
of doing so. In tho meantime, the
mines nnd the camps nro steadily
drawing ou their reserves deposit-
thnl are never replenished. The pass
ing of the yearn always brings a little
neurer the flnttlo of theso mines and
these camps. And the world's com
mercial affairs lire growing apace. The
need of money is more pronounced as
time passes. The time for the econo
mist it to be alarmed Is past, for the!
adjustment of gold supply to business
is rapidly completing itself.
We mention these facts that the
public may feel it is working no in
justice ou man kind by attempting to
swell the gold production. Until we
have become convinced Hint we shall
never need any more gold, we nro safe
in assuming that development of gold
properties is u highly legitimate bus
