was at a loss to hit on a plan to
keep the 'razor backs' from intrud

While we are not advocating
Free Silver or Free Gold we print
the history of the silver dollar for
the information of our readers as
ably presented by the Couriers
Journal of Louisville.
In 1878 the country was bare oi
silver with the exception of the
newly coined halves quarters and
dimes and possibly pome trade dol
lars that had come back from -a
broad' The subsidiary coin was
limited legal tender but was fre -ly
taken when offered in suitab e
quantities. The trade dollars w re
not legai tenders alter July 22,
1876. From 1834 to 1853 both sil-.
ver dollars and subsidiary coin
were worth more as bullion tnan
as coin and were melte i up ur ex
ported. The act of 1853 reducing
the weight of coins less than a dol
lar stopped the melting of them
because at their reduced weight it
was no longer profisablo but did
lars were still melted or exported.
In 1873 the coinage of tMde dol
lars 420 grains was authorized.
This was done at the instance oi
he peopie ot the Pacific coast who
wished them lor use in the As'atic
trade. They were a legal tender
for only $5 in one payment, but
this made no difference abroad,
where they were valued according
to their weight and fineness. The
'stamp of the Government about
which so much has been said, he p"
ed them to the extent that it show
ed they were nine parts fine silver
to one of alloy and that when un
worn they weighed 420 grains.
There are those who imagine
that the people of.China, Japan or
India do not know lie ritiererce
between gold and siiver and thai
they esteem the latter as much a
they eer did. For all that when
the price oi siiver bullion had de
preciated to a certain point the
trade dollars began to come back,
continued to come until all thai
had not been melted had probably
returned like the proverbial bad
penny. Tlusu however were not
legal lender lr any amount in
1878. Specie payments were not
resumed until the following year,
so gold also kept out of sight.
Under these circumstances, it is
not to be wondered at that there
was a demand ibr the old silver
dollar. The fashion sprang up of
calling them the "dollar of our
daddies,'' though in fact our dad
dies and granddaddies had gotten
but eight millions of them in
eighty five years and alter 1834
thote coined were melted up or ex
ported, because there was a profit
to be made in that way. Nobody
in 1878 knew how many silver doK
lars the people of the United States
wanted. The matter had never
been tested JttTeison stopped
their coinage in 1805. and though
it was resumed abont 1810 the
quantity was small and the coins
fso in disappeared Irom circulation.
The greenback era, not quite closed
in 1878, drove all sorts of coin out
of general circulation, So there
whs really no means of estimating
how many silver dollars which the
people were supposed ardently to
de-ire could ba kept in circulation.
f he law of 1878 providing for
nftbe dollar of 412&
grains and making it a legal tender
tor any sum, permitted this exper
iment to be made for the first time.
In a few years the limit ws reach
ed and dollars began to accurnu-!
late in the Treasury, On Novem
ber 1 1800 the . circulation hail
reached $05,700,504 which was tho
highest point reached on the cor
responding day of 'any year be
tween JSOand 1894, and probably
near the ugh water mark. lrom
this point it receded, and on the
