iriv of Mlvcr,
The continued decline in the pri.ee
of silver lias attracted the attention
of many., especially those interested
in its production and others who have
studied its relations to the currency
problem which is showing its influ
ence in every prominent commercial
Natural causes in the course of
trade and commerce have been care
fully investigated to find the cause of
this downward tendency but no satis
factory solution lias so far been given.
One fact which possibly has some
bearing upon the question is that
while the United Stales is the chief
producer of silver and will probably
continue to hold this position she has
no voice or influence in fixing the
price of her valuable commodity, but
accepts the price fixed by the pur
chaser, or the London broker. It is
also a fact that during the month of
January alone England imported
$19,460,000 in silver, paying for the
same at a price fixed by herself. Pur
clnsing nearly $20,000,000 in silver
per month for currency purposes. al
though nominally a gold currency
country it is for the interest of Eng
land, to depress the price of silver to
the lowest point.
There has been recently a strong
movement in Germany and England
which has voiced the feeling of an
important class of citizenc, demand
ing the renionctizutiou of silver and
its use as currency. If this movement
continues and the financiers of thes
countries see the" deplorable conse
quences of the mistake that wab made
and the change which seems to be
inevitable sooner or later, there may
be an effort made to depress silver to
the lowest possible point for the pur
pose of securing a large slock at the
least cost to meet the exigencies of
Apparently willing to sacrifice one
of the most important indu-tries of
the country the effort of a. large class
of citizens and Government oUicials
has been to make tilver unpopular
and to create an unfavorable impres
sion in regard to it.
All those various influences have
T.-ithout doubt tended to create the
conditions which at present prevail.
