The^resolution directs tin committee on ju^^diciary to mipiireif any furtlier legislation^is nrcessnny to make ii the fluty of the^proper officers of the mint to recciv e and^coin bullion lor the liencflt of deisisitors.^Senator Stewart said it i- pn^v idetl in^th^' act of KI7 that gold and silver bullion^brought to the mint for coinage shall !^^^^received and coined bv the proper otllci i .^for the Iw'uetil of dc|M^siiois. 'I here is^no other mode of manner provideil lor^coinage in that act. The Bland act of^1s7s revives tin- law of IK!7. The omis^^sion to enforce this provision is unaccount^^able : it appears to have Is-eu overlooked^bv all panics. The senator said: ^1 bave^examined the question and failed In find^any repeal or modification of the statute.^1 shall he surprised if the judiciary com^^mittee do not find that as a matter ot law^it is the duty ol the officers of the mint^to coin silver bullion into standard dol^^lars at the ratio of p. to 1 lor tihl batMaf i l^depositor.
