Extract From a Speech Delivered in the United States Senate,
" February 7, 1078.
"1 believe tho struggle now going on In tills country nnd in other
countries for a single gold standard would, if successful, produce wide-spread
disaster In and throughout tho commercial world. Tho destruction of silver
as money, nnd establishing gold as the solo unit of valuc.must have a ruinous
effect on all forms of property, except those Inycstmonts which yield a tlxcd
return In money. Those would be enormously enhanced In value, and would
gain a disproportionate and unfair ndvantage over every other species or
property. If, as thjs most reliable statistics nlilrm, there Is nearly seven
billion dollars of coin or bullion In the world, very equally divided between
gold and silver, It Is Impossible to strlko silver out of exlstenco as money
without results that will prove distressing to millions mid utterly disastrous
to tens of thousands.
"I believe gold and sllvur coin to 1ms tho money of tho constitution, In
deed, the money of the American people anterior to the constitution, which
tho great organic law recognized as quite Independent of Its own existence.
No power was conferred on congress to declare that cither metals should be
money. Congress has, therefore, In my Judgment, no power to demonetize
silver any more thnn 16 demonetize gold no power to demonetize either any
more than to demonetize both. Few persons can be found, I apprehend, who
will maintain that congress possesses the power to demonetize both gold and
silver, or that congress could be justified In prohibiting the coinage of both,
and yet in logic and legal construction It would bodllllcult to show whore
and why the power of congress over silver Is greater than over gold greater
over either than over tho two. If, therefore, sliver has been demonetized, I
am In favororrcmonctlzing It. If Its coinage has been prohibited, I am In
favor or ordering It to bo resumed. If It has been restricted, I am In favor or
having It enlarged." j
The Cause in Iowa,
Des Moines, Aug. ft. Tho gold
standard convention of Democrats
met at tho Savry house. About 40 do
legates wcro In attendance, and tho
meeting was harmonious. Tho ques
tion of the advisability of putting a
Democratic gold ticket in the Held
was discussed atlength,the mnlnjques
tlon being whether It would bo better
not to vote fof McKlnlcy than put a
ticket in the Held, which was consid
ered equivalent to helping tho Repub
lican ticket in a left-handed manner.
Tho majority was in favor or another
ticket, because the Republicans stand
