"When this country remonetlzos silver nt n rntlo of IB to 1, the price of silver tho world over will go to $1.20. Thnt nnturnlly will Incrense the cost of production abroad nnd benefit tho American manufacturer, taking from these other countries the advantages of the depreciated currencies they now enjoy.
