It Is however, onlj a difference in degree, since it is utterly Impossible tnat any one in our broad land, rich or poor, whatever maybe his occupation, and whether dwelling in a center of finance and commerce'or in a remote corner ol our domain, can be really benefited by a financial scheme not alike beneficial to all our people, or thai any one should bo excluded from a common and universal interest in the safe character and stable value of th,e currency of the country. ••in our relation to this question *o are all in business, lor -we all buy and sell, so we all have to do with financial operation*, for we all earn money and spend it.
