It a silver dollar wtUi a segment cut from its circle to offered at the custom house ft will be rejected, and It Ls oven doubtful I'f any allowance would be made for tte actual or proportionate weight of the remnliKler hi bullion. So far as Is known, a test of the matter has never been made, but it is probable, it the occasion should arise, that the Government officiate .would make allowance for only tttt actual number of silver grains remaining in One coin. . That is, they would consWor it fl» silver bullion atone, liavfow? a present virtue '-of about 70c an ouuc;, and would not base their calculatlous on the -face value.of the mill .'.self. It the coin had lost 20 per ceiit.'in weight, they would allow a credit of 75 per-ecu*, on a valuation of 70c instead of 7.T.C an the dollar. They would merely follow the practice ostao- aiod to the case of gold, having practically no offlvor ultenwtAve, Mid granting timt the defaced coin would be occupied at nil. This Is a *npposttiou.s case, ot course. Yet it Is one which IS apt to present itself in actual practice; and served, also to Uiustrate the diffrM-euce between gold niid sttver as mediums of exchange. A full-weight cnRlo melted down is still an eagle In buJltai. a:nd any assay office will accept lit as Mich. But should tlw oagle on a. silver dollar lose a part of Its auatomy, the stamp of Uncle Sam on to face would not save it from a depreciation of both its actual and face value. The stamp Joes not guarantee It?? bullion value, as in the case of gold, but jrlves lit a parity with that metal so long as tJie coin itBclf retains the original wcigW. Such Is the situation today. Granting tiie fact ta the ease, even though the illustration- is based ou a.u untried test, wou'ld the Government guarantee of value on a silver dollar so effect the market price for bullion tliait it would have an actual parity wltu S old ' or nt tho rate of $1.29% an ounce? Not by 'any manner of means.->SHver wouM still be a oommailMy, street to the law of supply greato tiiao the demand.
