Washing-ton, Sept. 1C.—Secretary Carlisle, from his summer retreat in Bar Hjirbor, Me., has addressed to one of his Kentucky correspondents the following letter: "Mr. James P. Helm, Louisville, Kv.—My Dear Sir: Your letter asklnr how the silver dollars, which contain a quantity o£ bullion commercially worth only about ES cents each, are maintained at a parity with sold, notwithstanding the tact that tho government docs not directly redeem them, <::• the certilk'ates Issued, upon them, In gold, Is received, and, ns n great many Inquiries upon the same subject are a<J- cressud to me dally from d'S'erent parts or the country, which It. Is impracticable to answer in detail, I will take advantage ot your favor to answer ttu>ir. all at once,. "All the standard sllvsr. dollars Issued from 'tho mints since the pissaee of the act.jjf^JSTS now amounting (o more than $4$'00<W()0," have" been colnml on public account ffcpiri bullion purchased by the government', and are. legal-tender In payment of alL-ftlebts, public and private, without regard to the amount, except when other- wlsoVexpressly stipulated Ir. the contract between.•'•the parties. They heloriR to the government when coined ar.d they are paid- out by ; the government at.a parity with Kold <.or property ar.d services'of all kinds, and -.rec'e'lved from the people at a parity with gold ln : the payment o? ill public dues and demands. ... "The Bovernment has ma;'e no discrimination between the coins. f the two metals,gold having- been paid on.Its coin obllga-^ tlons when ffold was demanded, and silver having been paid when ijll.-er was de-. miinded. Under this policy the coinage has been so limited by law and the policy of the treasury department that .the amount coined haj not bcei,:.:e so sreat as to drive the more valuable coin, gold, out of use, and thus destroy the basis of our monetary system; and so long as tho two metals are of unequal commercial value, at the ratio established by law, this limitation upon the coinage Is. In my opinion, absolutely essential to th-s. maintenance of their parity In effectlnR exchanges. It constitutes the principal saf<-puard for the protection of our currency atrolnsl the depreciation which the expertjncu of all countries has shown vould otherwise result from the attempt to use two legal tender coins of the same denomi.i'«.tlon, but of unequal value. -If the limitation wero removed, confidence in the ability of the government to preserve equality In the exchangeable value of the rolns would be destroyed and the parity would be lost long "before tho amount o< sliver coinage had become really, excessive.. . "WlthNfree and-unllmlro 1 ! r.jlnagre of silver on account of private Individuals arid corporation!! the government would be under fia moral obligation to maintain the. parity as.'J.; moreover. It'would be, unable to do so, because the volume of overvalued silver forced Into the circulation by a lesal tender provision :wou!d soon expel gold from the country or put such a premium upon It that'll wouJ-ITje impossible to procure and- hold In the treasury a sufficient amount to prpvlde fir the redemption of silver on presentation, • Tn order to maintain, the.parlty..under-?uch conditions -ttie government would be compelled from the beginning' to 'xchanse gold for silver dollars and their paper representatives ; whenever demanded, Just as It now exchanges gold for Its own notes when demanded; and, B.B the colnago of silver dollars would be" unlimited, ard, therefore,, constantly Increasing, a poln: would soon be reached where 't would be Impossible to continue the process of redemption. "The implied obligation of the government to preserve the value of the money which It coins from Its o-vn bullion and for Its own use, and which forces its citizens to receive in exchange tor their property and service, had been supplemented by two statutory declarations which substantially pledge tho public faith to the • maintenance of that policy. The act of July 1-1, 1S90, after providing-that the secretary of the treasury should, under such regulations as ho might prescribe, redeem tho treasury notes Issued Ir the purchase of silver bullion In sold or silver, at his discretion, declared that It Is 'the established policy of the United States to maintain the two- metals on a. parity with each other upon the present legal ratio, or such ratio as may be provided by law," and the act of November 1,1S93, again declares it to be 'the policy of the United States to continue the use of both gold and ellver aa standard money, and to coin both gold and silver Into money of equal intrinsic and exchangeable value, such quality to be secured through international agreement, or by such safeguards of leg'slatlon as will insure the maintenance of the parity of value ot the coins ot the two metals and the equal power of every dollar at all times In the markets In the payment of debts.' "With knowledge of these assurances, the people have received these coins and have relied confidently upon the good faith cf their government, and the confidence thus Inspired has been t most Inportant factor In the maintenance of the parity. The public has been satisfied that, so long as the present monetary system Is preserved, the government will do whatever Its moral obligations and expressed declarations require It to do, and very larrcly as a consequence of this confidence in the pood faith of the executive authorities the silver colria have not depreciated in value. It Is not doubted that whatever can be lawfully done to maintain equality In the exchangeable value of the '.wo metals will bo done whenever it. becomes necessary, and, although silver dollars and silver certificates have not, up to the present time, been received In exchange for gold, yet If the tlmo BhaJl ever come when the parity cannot be otherwise maintained such exchange will be made. It-U-the-duty of the- secretary if the treasury and of all other public jfflciala to execute In good faith the policy declared by :congreas, and wjnenever be shall be.satisfied that tho ullver dollar can- no t be kept equal in purchaslig- power with no- gold dollar, except by receiving It In exchange for the gold dollar, when such exchange li demanded. It will be bis duty •o adopt thaf course.' But If-'our present iollcy is adhered to and ,the coinage Is Jtept irlthln reasonable limits, the means here- •oforo employed for the maintenance of lie parity will doubtless be found sufficient in the-future, and our silver dollars and silver certlflcaten -will continue to circulate at par with gold, thus enabling the people'to use both metals. Instead of one inly, as- would bo the case .If the parity vero destroyed by free coinage. : J. O. CARLISLE." . • Oumha.Bank .in Trouble.
