It caused the enactment of the law providing for the resumption of specie payments In IS"0; Btoce then every dollar has been as good «s gold. "We are u-nalterably opposed to every measure calculated to debase our currency or impair the credit of- our country. We are therefore opposed to the free coinage o£ silver except by international agreement with the leading commercial nations of the world, which •we pledge ourselves to promote, and until then such gold standard must be preserved. \ "All OUT silver and paper currency must be maintained at parity with gold, and we favor all measures designed to maintain Inviolably the obligations of the United States and all our money, whether coin or paper, ot toe present stanOard, the atoodare of the most enlightened nations of the earth." —Republican platform. "We demand the free and unlimited coinage of both gold aod silver at the present legal rntlo of 10 to 1, without •waiting for Uie aid or consent of any other nation.
