and points out tlm dingers of a inaction!
sllvel mouo-inctallisui through the tin ow

It calls attention to the dlllleultbs and de

an liiteruatlouil compact and tiuestlous tho
succvsslul maintenance of a parity ot gold

cially In tlow of tho threatened illttnlegra

"The coin would be absolute stable value

As to the imcstlon whether tho proposed

could be piocured, which would bo Just as
available. If, at any time, It became neces

It could be done at the United States mint
