points; tbe former liecause it prosHes to

A flood Thins; for Silver Men.
"Tlie plan proposed by the secretary is
far more advantageous to silver producers
than the enforcement of the extreme limit
of the present law, for these reasons: He-
cause under its operations more than f-l.nuo.-
() worth per month Could be received; any
restriction acts as a menace to the price of
silver; inerrased coinage under the present
law could not continue indefinitely, ami it
would he only a question of time when it
would have I., iliscoutinued. Bv supply
ing an unlimited market for the product of
silver it leave it on to all the natural o-
eratloiis oi the laws or supply and demand.
The tendency of this will 1st to gradually and
permanently enhance Its value, thus enabling
producers to realize a larger price for their
product. At the same time it will materially
enhance the intrinsic value of the large stock
of silver Iu circulation in this country either
as coin or IU representative.
M ill Pave the Way to Free Coinage
"Moreover, I Isdieve It will pave tlie way
to what is most desired by all true bimetal
tats, free coinage of both metals at a fixed
ratio. I do not know of any bunetalists of
national or international reputation who
would consider It for the interest
of our silver producers or of our
country for this government alone to
open Its mints to the free coinage of full
legal teniler silver dollar whUo the market
price of silver is nearly 3o per cent leas than
iu value as coin. I believe that the
adoption of the measure reeommended by
tbe secretary would, in a few years, so
en ham the value of silver that an interna
tional agreement looking to tlie opening of
the mints of the world, or at least the states
of the Latin union and the countries of this
continent, to the free coinage of both metals
at a fixed ratio would not only be possible,
but desirable, aud readily accomplished

Paris, Dec 9. Contradictory and exag

and Prince Murat. In an informal conver

ly of her relations with Prince Murat and of
the cause of his action with regard to their
engagement. -In the first place," she said,
"the prince has not broken off the engage

postponed, and that In consequence of the

of such nn offer until I read it in the papers.
Tlie truth of the matter is, I have never
offered Prince Murat one wiu, either condi

law vers and learned that the demands of the
prince were so unreasonable that they were
forced by prudent in 1 considerations to de

much of my income tbe prince wanted for

'To prove to him that I really loved blm,
