"if sudden resumption will Involvo tbo groat
decline in prices which you say it will, it would
be a vast calamity to a majority of the peojdo
of tho United States. It would certainly hank
rujit or susjicnd throo-juarters of tho business
men In thocountry at once. It would jiroduco
mitiVrlng end desolation of which we havo no
record in this or nnvothor country. Hundreds
of thou'iiuds now living in comfort, would be
reduced to jioverty. HuInoM would bo de
stroyed, tho jMKir 'without omjiloyiiicut, tho
jieoplo unablo to pay their taxes, and tho gov
ernment Itself threatened with bankruptcy and
dishonor. And yel, you ay, you want to
make the jiluugo at once. It tho prtvato in
debtness of tho jieoplo to each other on tho 1st
of February, IflCO, amounts to $8,000,000,000 j
tho caimcity of the debtors to pay by your low
est ustimato would bo diminlsnod touho oxtent
of $2,000,000,000. You may bo ready to mako
tho jilunge, but tho great Inidy of tho jieopiu
aro not. Your plan would suit udmliiibly that
class of peoplo who are not in debt and havo
jilonty of caiiitul, or, who havo fixed incomes
which would bo greatly improved in value by
the largo decline in prices of every kind of
lnopertv. Your jilan would enrich tho credi

say, thoM.orift.und cpiituJulo wnuld bo after

"In a spe.ch in tho senate, last, summer, I
argued tlmt, undor tho' statutes eroding tho
legal tender notes and 0-20 bonds, tho govern
ment hud tho right to use tho old or existing
notes in jiavmont of theso bomls. This argu
ment I prefaced In'tho declaration that tho first
duty of govornmont was to return to Bjiecio
payments, which would render this question
unimportant, and denying the right of tho
government to issuo not with which to pay
theso bonds. "What wa j'ldkd jljo H'tfidleton
theory, that tho goVoruinent has tho right to
