Hx-Mayor Will 8 Cowherd "When I

speech and the first time he made ue of

piece about Abou Hen Adam mav his

the anRCl writes and vanishes; he stuck
that hand out to the nudlenco and then
hcRnn to let out a few reefs at a time.
As Inch nfter Inch of human hand unrav

A part of the argument ror Ihe single gol 1
stntnl.it it Is the assertion, often repeated,
that Rold Is "(he Inohey of civilization,"
and the basis of Hits declaration Is the fact
that Ihe mast hlshly civilise I countries
have Ihe rdIJ standard. This aigutnent

lu gold mono-mclalllsm be the lest of the
decree of civilisation attained by tho peo

In the world, down lo 1S71, was the Drtt
Ish nation. In what particular wns Annul

The theory Unit the gold standard has

ration Is supposed to obtain force from tho
use of silver inono-tnetalllsm In such coun

where shall proof be obtained thnt the kind

piodttct or the source or the Index of the
pirtlcular civilization Iheieln elstltiR7 Un

deslies to learn the 11 nth will dlscovet, If
h shall make the effoit. that with sliver

gradually going bevond their reach, Mex

Sears. The facts respecting Japan nre
known to all men. Thnt India nnd Mexico
have developed their nianufnctutes nnd ac
quired n lnige degiee of self-dependence Is
not so well known, but It Is nevertheless
Hue. Thus it is lndlputnble that Uip ue
of sliver Ins helped rilher than hindered
these nations In their efforts to uplift
themselves, and it wns becvuse India was
going too svvirtls towards better things that
the IlrltHh government 111 lVeJ compelled

Indeed, Is a feiimld itilo stumbling block lu

of the mest important of the functions of
that science which itself Is one of the best
products of high civilization. Is to pi event

and seeks sui h ei onomles should leject one

not be Hkelv to do io In view of tho fact
that for .prlie as monev, sliver Is rinliy
