Tho Philadelphia Tunes says it

Tho Times says also that "national

so eloarly and positively that tho
woild will accopt it." That will
do too. The restoration of silvor
to its propor place as a monoy
inotal will do all this.

80 YEARS THE STANDARD.
Tho fact that silvor has maintain
ed itself relatively to allothorcom.
modities, with tho singlo excoption
of gold, proves conclusively that it
is moro equablo and uniform in its
exchangeable valuo than gold.
Tho products of tho farm, the mine,
tho facto', tho workshop, vary is
according to stho supply and demand
and the abundanco or scarcity
of monoy, tho distributing agent of
all commodities. Gold is tho most
fickle, uncertain and variablo of all
earthly products. It is in tho
United States to-day, to-morrow it
is in England, then in France,
Germany, Austria or Itussia. Bnx.
Franklin well said that tho esti
mate in which other nations hold
gold made it too unstablo and unreliable
for a domestic instrument
of oxchangc. "Whilo wo have had
from tho beginning of our national
oxislcnco both gold and silver as a
legal tender at a givon ratio, tho
silver dollar for eighty years was
tho only standard. A lump of gold
of a givon weight and fineness was
declared to bo of tho value of ton
silver dollars. Thoir rolativo ex
changeable valuo was fixed and de
termined by law.
Tho United States never had two
measuring units. Silvor had that
honor undisputed until tho rascally
act of Congress transferred the
measuring unit from tho silver to
tho gold dollar and dropped the
coinage of silver. Tho silver dollar
was the standard, but gold was
clothed with money functions.
When tho gold dollar was made
the unit, silver wa3 deprived of its
money functions. There was no
complaint during a period of 80
years that our coinage laws wore
defootivo or wrought injury to debtor
or creditor; on the contrary, the
wisdom and statemanship of their
authors never questioned.
