Perhaps the coml's inajorily strained u •point or two to meet the public necessities of the .situation. But it is unfortunate for Hie minority case that Justice Me Reynolds, in announcing the dissent of himself ami three colleagues, was not satisfied with stating: the legal and consliliiliomil grounds for their position but undertook instead to attack the majority opinion as immoral ami inequitable. For il is in the honesty, justice and reasonableness of the congressional action reducing .Hie gold content of the American dollar and nlji-ogatinjf contracts calling for payment in gold that the majority opinion of the supreme court has its greatest strength. "You must lake GO per cent of what you contracted for," md Justice Ale- Reynolds. " Here we have a monetary system the wickedness of which is atmc-sb beyond comprehension. ......The treasury Kays hero is a depreciated dollar from your government in answer lo'the government's contracts." The answer to the learned justice, of course, js that this depreciated dollar, this 00-ccnt dollar of which he speaks with such -magnilicoiiL -'scorn and .contempt, is still a better, dollar ''than ./was used by most, of the' purchasers of the gold contract securities who arc compelled to accept "it in lion of the t'ok! iv-liieli they claimed. As Walter Lippman pointed out this morning, today's dollar, poor thing dial it is, gives a very nice profit to the holdeis of securities bought at wuy time from 10M to 1030. This little GO-cunt [dollar wi]l buy more, than would' the goad old tOO-cent 'dollar, and if that doesn't make il every bit •as good a dollar wo should like to know what is lacking. Mi-. Lippman cited the case of one of the plain tills who came before the court seeking the gold his conlracl called for or its equivalent. lie had . bought a government bond in 1!U3. AH ' a result oL yesterday's decision he will be paid back in dollars with a ' purchasing power of 1.7 times that OUT OUR WAY of the dollars hu spent for the bond. Had Justice McHeynolds' views prevailed lie would have been, entitled fo dollars With a purchasing power of 2.87 times that of the dollars he invested. To limit him to a 70 per cent appreciation j n the value of his investment is described in the minority opinion as wickedness "almost beyond comprehension". If it is wickedness it is indeed of a kind that i s beyond our comprehension.
