The Very Best Authority In
SUMS UP FEEE SILYEH I1T MEXICO.
A Statement From the Mexican Minister
of Finance on the IitTecta of Free anil
Unlimited Coinage if Silver In That
Country It Alms at Ulmetatllam, bnt
In Reality Means Silver Alone Gold
at n Premium of Nearly 200.
Mr. Jose Limnntoar, the Mexican
minister of finance, has been inter
viewed on the effects of free and un
limited coinage of silver iu that conn
try, and his statement is ono of the most
important contributions to tho present
financial discussion which have yet ap
peared. The Cincinnati Commercial
Tribune in commenting thereon says :
"Minister Limantour is an authority.
Ho is in charge of the finances of a
country which is now and has always
been on a free-silver basis. Those facts
alone would give great valuo to his ut
terance tfpon a question of such vital
importance to tho American people ; but
in addition he declared, previous to his
statement, that what ho said was 'from
an absolutely nonpartisan standpoint.'
That, then, absolves the distinguished
gentleman from any attempt to make
political capital for any American part7.
"In almost his first sentence he deals
a sledgehammer blow at the bimetal
lism fallacy of Bryan by saying, 'The
oretically, of course, our standard is bi
metallic ; but, of course, it is really a
single silver standard.' Ho then goes
on to say :
" 'It is not possible to have a double
standard under free coinage. Any
gold wo havo is immediately exported,
and I have never seen any gold in cir
culation in Itloxico. Gold is at a pre
mium of nearly 200.'
"Nearly every word of the distin
guished Mexican financier, it will bo
observed, is a direct contradiction of the
statements so glibly made by Mr.
Bryan. Fnithermoro, Mr. Limantour's
words aro based upon a national and a
personal experience, while Mr. Bryan's
utterances aro based upon airy assump
tions, spontaneous speculations and
"Tho minister was asked by our cor
respondent .'he question :
" 'Is Mexico prosperous on a silver
"To which ho answered :
" 'Our prosperity is iucroasing rapid
ly, but it is duo to a number of causes,
and not especially to the silver stand
ard.' "He was also asked :
" 'What is tho effect upon wages of
the depreciating silver standard ?'
"And his reply was :
" "They havo not increased percepti
bly. Tho 8me is true of Japan, wliere
wages are very low. For this reason
Japan and Mexico will in a few yean
be able to compete successfully with
England and the United States Sccauso
of the 6ilver standard and low wages.'
" 'What is the ruling rate of wages
for agricultural laborers iu Mexico?'
" 'Twenty-five cents a day.'
There, thsn, is a word picture of thn
effects of freo silver in Mexico, thj
country that is held up to us by the ad
vocates of a silver standard as a shining
examplo of all the benefits of such a
"It is a word picture painted by the
ono man of 'ill others most capablo of
doing justie3 to tho subject, and a study
of Minister Limantour's verbal free sil
ver landscape on tho part of Mr. Bryan
and his followers is most respectfully
"Unintentionally, Minister Liman
tour has performed a service of inesti
mable valuo to this nation. Ho has re
vealed the real results of tho poll 4
wnoso aaoption is urged by tno advo
