1 Representative Loud of this
state has succeeded in getting
through the House a resolution
calling upon the Secretary of the
Treasury for information as to his
reason for not carrying out the
silver purchase .law. T’Ue matter
is certainly a proper subject for
inquiry. During the past several
months the silver purchases have
averaged about 1,000,000 ounces
I ess per month than the 4,500,000
required to be purchased by the
The mason given by the Secre
tary and the mint authorities for
failure to comply with the law has
been that'the price of silver is fixed
in London and that various offers
of silver to the mint have been out
of conformity to its value thus
fixed. But this is believed b y
friends of silver to be only a pre
text, and the receut practices have
been simply a part of the policy of
the administration to ignore silver
and depress silver values. An in
stance of the methods of the au
thorities is cited by a local paper:
“A large dealer in the precious
metals offered several thousand
ounces of stiver to the mint for
$0.7630, The London quotation
that morning, or its equivalent was
$0.7735. The silver was offered at
the mint for ten mills lessth°n this
equivalent, and the authorities
refused to accept it at Hiis figure.
They made an alternative offer of
$0.75. This, of course, was re
fused, and the silver was sold in
open market for $0.76. A state
ment of these facts was forwarded
to Senator Perkins at Washington.
He immediately sent the letter to
Acting Director of the Mint Pres
ton The reply of the official con
tained a resume of the transaction
and admitted the truth of all the
statements pertaining to it. Dir
ector Preston concludes his letter
by the statement that the depart
ment reserves to itself perfect free
dom of action in the purchase of
silver and the right to fix its price
as it sees tit.”
If the latter statement credited
to the director is correct, it dis
closes an astonishing conception of
his duty under the law. It is not
the office of the mint to bear silver
and “fix the price as it sees fit.”
It is ascertain the normal market
value and pay it. The public have
a right to expect that the mint will
do what it reasonably and legally
can to sustain the value of one of
its money metals.—Mining and

If one-tenth of the number of
newly discovered gold mines re
cently reported in Arizona develop
into the bonanzas expected of all of
them, gold will soon become as
plentiful as silver. The prospects
of the yellow metal becoming king
has created a yellow fever epidemic
among the prospeotors, and the
citizen of the territory who does
not own a gold mine now is not in
the swim. Notwithstanding all this
prospective wealth in the dominant
money metal, the people of Arizona
are almost a unit in favor of the
free coimage of silver.—Enterprise.
