Pefore that law is passed to approval I should like to draw the at tention of Hon. .Members of the Legislature to a letter from .Mr. J. M. Horner, which appeared in our columns a week or two ago. in which he puts the very pertinent query: "If the gold will not stay with us, who will pay for th next lot?" and gives reasons for its not staying. There i a letter from the same gentleman in last wak's Ci'itztttt, but that letter is rather too j-htniocratlc in tone, and gives gold coinage scant justice. The question is not whether ;old or silver is the best standard gold is. of course but whether we can afford to adopt a gold standard now. and whether, having adopted it. we shall be able to J maintain it. The avowed, immediate pur pose of its advocates is the reduction of the price of exchange, but isn't this some thing like "taking a hair of the dog that bit you:' Excessive importing is one of the causes of the high exchange, which is high simply because of the great demand for it. of course. "Will the importation oi a lot of gold lessen that demand? The high rate of exchange .sterns to be due, j 1st. To the loir price ,.f snjar, the value of which has fallen 23 per cent, which means j that where there were formerly four dollars' j worth of exchange to sell there are now only j three, the lnw of snnniv .md demand imr ; ' . ; ; -..,..0 .... .. -n". ; still further curtailed bv tnt "ivaiakaua ! dollars having to be paid fr in sugar. 2d.
