JERRY SIMPSON'S PLAN.
Vfould Issuo Certificate# Against the £it«
ver In the Mountains.
When tho sockless statesman of Kan
sas first visited Now York city, he went
with a friend to the Unitod States sub
treasury iu Wall street. They wero
ehowu through tho vaults in which part
of the .government's money is stored
and finally reached a room in which
thousands of big bags of silver dollars
were piled ceiling high. Looking at tho
great heap of useless metal, tho Medicine
Lodge financier turned to the United
States subtreasurer and asked: "Why
could not silver certificates be issued
just as well 011 tho silver in tho hills? It
would save tho country all tho expen.- o
of mining tho ore, smelting and refining
it and coining it into dollars. I think it
is n great wasto of labor to dig all that
silver out of one hole and cut it up into
littlo pieces just to bring it here and
dump it down into another hole."
Ridiculous as is tho idea of paper cur
rency based on silver in the rocks, it is
more sensible than tho free coinage at
16 to 1 plan. The silverites propose to
compel the government to
coin into legal
tender dollars all tho silver which may
be brought to the mints. As tho country
has already far mere silver dollars than
can be used in business, it would be nec
essary to issuo certificates which would
pass as currency. So that the govern
ment would bo practically buying all
the silver offered it at a price nearly
double its market value.
Tho silver mine owners and their
agents ridiculed Congressman Simpson's
cheap money scheme. But wild as his
plan was it did not involve tho repudia
tion of just debts or the debasement of
the standard of value, as did theirs.
Silverites who laugh at the notion of
using the Rocky mountains as a basis
for currency are really condemning
their own theory. Sensiblo people who
believe iu honest money want neither
certificates based on silver ore nor on pi*,
silver. Either would mean a great an
nual loss through tho wasteful employ
ment of labor which ought to Le cu«
gaged in producing useful articles.
