What I Know About Hardware and
It is a nonular fallaov. 1. That a
government cati tako 70 cents worth
of silver and make it worth $1.00 by
stamping it. 2. That free coinage of
silver would mako money easier and
interest lower. 3. That a dmil.ln
standard of valvue eanjbo maintained
in any country. 4. Tnat the beBt
money lor tho noli is not the boat
for tho poor. I donv al! this. Gold
is the best money for all, oxoepting
tor onange. iet tree silver coinage
start and gold will disappear as rap
idly as it did whon green backs were
started. Money will become scarcer and
the rato of interest higher, and busi
ness of all kinds, in adjusting itself
on a silver basis, will booomo unset
tled and disorganized. Our govern
ment is now taxing the labor and
industries of tho nation four millions
a month, for the solo purpose of
oreating a better market for tho pro
duct of rich silver mining companies.
What school of finanoo authorizes
suoh a proceeding, and what moral
riht has the government to do thia?
One dollar will go a long way in
hardware. It will buy a post auger, a
good axe and handlo, a fluting iron, a
pat. buggy wrench and jack.a five foot
step ladder, a mattock and handlo, a
steel wire door mat, 1 dozen 0 inoh
flower pots, slovepipo shelf, or a galv.
iron waBh tub, at E. Strauss'
Hardware Store.
