Plerrcpont then, as I lime heard, denied
10 1 no president; nml he nan ever spoke
tome of either Secretary Hrlstow or
Postniastcr-Oencral Jewell. In his testi
mony of tho sixth, under oath, ho says
ho did not Inquire about me of both Hrls

me a bad name, why did not he,
ir true to tho president, lnlorni
him. and thus prevent my being com
mended to and given an appointment bv
Secretary Chandler, and as Sceretarv
( 'handler says my name was given him
ny 1110 president at a eaiiinei meciing, ut

iiucstioii my appointment when It was
desired by the president, as he himself
coiifes-es'f lie simply betrayed, llrst, the

Thoro could ho nothing wrong Iu tills.

take Ids choice, but all around his con

here state that 1 found long since that

Into trade dollars. He thought It best to
allow the coinage of the trado dollar, hut
take away from It Its legal tender right.
If the trade dollar should continue as a
legnl tender, with silver depreciated, tho
whole country would soon bo over
whelmed witli that silver not at par In
gold. The question of coinage was an
International one. Congress must stop
to see what the laws of other nations were
011 the sublect. He then relcrrcd to the
laws oi F.nelaml. France, llclglum.
Switzerland and Italy, and argued that
wherever silver was hi use among
modern nations It was a legal len
der only to a limited amount. He
next referred to the financial laws ol fier
tnany, ami said ho had taken pains to
luivo tlio Herman statute translated, r or
inerlv. In that countrv. silver alone was
the standard ot value, ami it had been
estimated mat tno amount 01 silver out
standing in flermasv then was $:H0.0UO,'
000; but It had been shown since that the
amount was over 8100,000.000. He then
read from the London Economic as to
the amount ol new coin Issued by fler
many. Continuing his argument, lie said
the action of the Herman government hud
been to deinonell.o silver. Probably no
act ol nnv Parliament had won so wide
reaching as that ot thu Herman Kvlclislng
Its elleet had been to

How of -liver Into India ami China for

It was a settled fact that the sliver Irom
