Therefore In pursuance of section 3,700of tho revised sLalates. tho details of an :;rrar.po- Lior.c have this day been concluded with parties abunilnntly ublo to fulnll their undertaking whereby bonds of the United States author- I'/.od under iho act of July 14, IST5, payable In coin, thirty years after their ditto, with Interest ut lU<i ruto of-t per emit, per annum to the amount of a littlo less than £0-,•100.03), are to be Issued for the purchase of gold coin amounting to u sum slightly In excess of SIH.ODO.WO to be delivered to tho treasury of the United States, which sum added to '.ho gold now held In our reserve will so restore such reserve as to make it amount to somcthinc more thnu 810U.OOJ.O(JO. Such a premium is to be allowed 1.0 tho government upon tho bonds as to lix tho rato of Intorcst upon tho inuount ol gold realized nt 3?i percent, per annum. At least one- half of the gold to be obtained Is to bo supplied Irorn abroad, which Is a very Important and favorable feature of thu transaction. Must Ace AVIthlii Tun L>;iy«. The privilege Is especially reserved to the government to substitute at pir within ten days from this dato in lieu of 4 per cent-, coin bands, other bonds in terms payable In pold and bearing only H percent, interest if tho issue of tl>e siiine should in tlie- meantime be nutnorlzuil by congress. Tile arrangement thus completed, wuicli a.ter direful inquiry appears in present clr- eui:!Stanees and considering all the objects desired to be the best attainable, develops such a d.iT.:ivuoo in tho estimation of investors bo- '.wccu bonds made payable ill eoLa uud those specilleally made payable in gold in f.-u-or of thu lattur, and U rfipresenteci by three-fourths of a cent in aniuiai iutorest. fun S:sv!- Millions.

Of course, there never should bo u doubt In any i|u:irti:r us to the redemption In gold of the bonds of the KovcrnmiMit which are made payable in gold. Therefore, tne discrimination. In the Judgment of investors,between our bond obligations payable la coin and those spocllieally made- payable In gold is very significant. It Is hardly necessary to suggest that whatever may be our views on tho subject tho sentiments or preferences of those with, whom wo must negotiate In disposing of our bonds for pold iiro not- subject to our dictation. 1 have only to add that In my opinion tho transaction heroin detailed for tho Information of tho congress promises better results than the efforts previously made In tha direction of effectively adding to our gold reserve through the sale of bonds, ana 1 believe It will tend, as far as such, action can in present circumstances, to meet tho determination expressed in the law repealing the silver purchasing clause of the act of July 14,1390, and that in tlie language of such repealing act tho arrangement made will aid our efforts to "insure the malntenaDoo of tho parity in value of the coins of the two metals nnd tho oaual power of every dollar at all times In the markets and in the payment of debts."
