Regarding the passage of the silver bill
while the papers in London have been quite
bitter and unfair in their discussion of the sub
ject, the people do not seem to have been
alarmed. The effect upon the value of Amer
ican bonds has been scarcely appreciable. In
fact, taking the record of the past six weeks
into account, while English funds have fallen
three-eighths, American bonds have fully held
their own. The effect on silver is equally en
couraging: to those who insisted on its remont
tization. From about fifty-three pence per
ounce it has steadily advanced, in spite of
heavy sales in Germany, until it now stands at
65^ pence. An equal increase further will
bring in on an equality with gold as a coin.
English holders of American bonds have not
yet been frightened into selling them to any
Apportionment of School Funds.
